From a friend: And it begins…. – CA NEW 🔥 FIRE OUTBREAK! 4 NEW Fires Simultaneously – EMERGENCY! CA Under Attack AGAIN! (8min)

Russia Plans To Take Over Black Sea: RAND Fuels ‘Russian Threat’ Fearshttps://southfront.org/russia-plans-to-take-over-black-sea-rand-fuels-russian-threat-fears/ – “Moscow’s overall objectives are tailored to conditions in each country in the region, with goals of keeping various neighbors in states of nonalignment or insecurity relative to Russia and the West and open to Russian economic, political, and malign influences… The report focuses on the modernization of the Black Sea Fleet. The authors emphasize that since 2014 it has been replenished with six corvettes, six submarines of Project 636 Varshavyanka and three multipurpose patrol ships of Project 11356: Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen and Admiral Makarov. The last three are carriers of Kalibr cruise missiles capable of hitting targets throughout the Black Sea… All this, according to RAND, allows the Kremlin to create a so-called restricted access zone in the region, in which NATO forces will suffer unreasonably high losses during a military clash… That is also entirely based on speculation.”

NYPD counter-terrorism bureau ‘closely monitoring shooting incident’ at New Hampshire churchhttps://www.rt.com/usa/470801-new-hampshire-church-shooting/ – “At least one person has reportedly been injured in a shooting incident in a church in the town of Pelham, New Hampshire… Authorities responded to the incident at the New England Pentecostal Church just after 10 am, local news outlet WMUR reports… A large volume of law enforcement officers and a number of ambulances rushed to the scene and the suspect is in custody.”

Turkish Warplanes Attack Kurdish Forces In Northern Aleppohttps://southfront.org/turkish-warplanes-attack-kurdish-forces-in-northern-aleppo/

SDF Defense Collapses. Turkish Forces Capture 18 Villages (Map, Videos) – https://southfront.org/sdf-defense-collapses-turkish-forces-capture-18-villages-map-videos/ – “Early on October 12, the Turkish military and the so-called Syrian National Army (NSA) managed to reach the strategic M4 highway after capturing eighteen villages in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah and Raqqa… ‘The forces were able to liberate eighteen villages which are: Nus Tell, Rajm Anuah, Umm Jurn al-Sauauin, Jamous, Lazkah, al-Aridah, Hwiran, al-Wasta, Shukan, al-Trauziyah, al-Zayidi, al-Nabhan, al-Khalidiah, al-Khuir al-Kabirah, al-Khuir al-Saghirah, al-Filo, al-Ghujir and Ghuzil,’ the NSA said in a short press release… Turkish forces are now taking advantage of the collapse in the SDF’s defenses and advancing around the key border town of Ras al-Ayn in northern al-Hasakah. The town will likely fall within a few hours… The first phase of Operation Peace Spring is aimed at establishing a 120 km long, 30km deep “safe zone” in northeast Syria.”

Turkish-Backed Forces Execute Head Of Pro-SDF Syrian Political Partyhttps://southfront.org/turkish-backed-forces-execute-head-of-pro-sdf-syrian-political-party/ – “Secretary General of the Future Syria Party, Hevrin Khalaf, was captured and then executed by Turkish-backed forces, the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) announced on October 12… In an official statement, the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) revealed that Harvin was ambushed and captured by Turkish-backed militants on the M4 highway in northeast Syria. Harvin was immediately executed by the militants, along with her driver… ‘This is a clear evidence that the Turkish state is continuing its criminal policy towards unarmed civilians.’ ”

Putin Planning “Deal Of The Century” Between Syria & Turkey As US Exits – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-exit-putin-planning-deal-century-between-syria-turkey – “Lebanese Arabic news broadcaster Al-Mayadeen is reporting that Russia has begun organizing “reconciliation talks” between Syria and Turkey, in what would be an unprecedented development, given President Erdogan’s position has long been that Turkey won’t negotiate with Damascus so long as Assad is in power… The Middle East broadcaster cited Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who said, ‘Moscow will ask for start of talks between Damascus and Ankara’… Russia’s TASS has also confirmed the initiative, making it the first significant attempt to bring the two sides to the table, given Ankara severed diplomatic ties with Damascus in 2012. Turkey could indeed be ready given it has finally gotten its way in Syria — with a long planned attack on Syrian Kurds along the border in northern Syria, which began Wednesday with an air and ground offensive… Indeed (the) Syrian Kurdish have already this week expressly stated they are open to a deal with Assad… On Monday the commander of the US trained and armed SDF, Mazlum Abdi, indicated just that in a bombshell statement: ‘We are considering a partnership with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with the aim of fighting Turkish forces,’ he said… The United States has blocked such talks for years, making Trump’s “betrayal of the Kurds” sting much worse, given the White House’s essentially ‘green lighting’ the Turkish invasion did not give the Kurds time for the crucial option of coordinating a defense with the Syrian Army or pursuing a reconciliation deal with Assad, as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has pointed out… Meanwhile, with the SDF now taking heavy casualties, and with no response to overwhelming Turkish air power, the Syrian Kurds are no doubt already reaching out to Damascus for aerial support and assistance from the Syrian Army.”

Turkish Operation In Northeastern Syria Is Coordinated With United States, Russia?https://southfront.org/turkish-operation-in-northeastern-syria-is-coordinated-with-united-states-russia/ – “On October 10, the U.N. Security Council did not agree on a statement condemning Turkey’s military operation in Syria. Following an emergency, closed-door session of the Security Council, ambassadors issued somber assessments of the situation. Five European ambassadors demanded that Turkey cease its military operation against Kurdish armed groups in northeastern Syria… U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft said Washington does not endorse Turkey’s actions, but did not contribute a lot of efforts to condemn it… Russia’s U.N. ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said that the United States and its coalition are conducting “demographic engineering” that led to the conflict. He called for a solution that would ‘take into account other aspects of the Syrian crisis, not just the Turkish operation.’.. ‘It should speak about the illegal military presence in that country,’ Nebenzia said in an apparent reference to the U.S. military presence in Syria… Reactions of Russia and the United States to Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring demonstrate that Ankara may have in fact pre-agreed it actions with Moscow and Washington.”

Child Charged With Felony For Pointing ‘Finger Gun’ in School – 12-year-old girl could face year in juvenile detention – https://www.newswars.com/child-charged-with-felony-for-pointing-finger-gun-in-school/ – “A 12-year-old girl was hauled from school in handcuffs and charged with a felony for allegedly pointing her fingers in the shape of a gun at classmates in Overland Park, Kansas… The child was arrested on Sept. 18 after she, “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities,” according to court documents reviewed by the Kansas City Star.:  ‘A 12-year-old girl was hauled from school in handcuffs and charged with a felony for allegedly pointing her fingers in the shape of a gun at classmates in Overland Park, Kansas… The child was arrested on Sept. 18 after she, “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities,” according to court documents reviewed by the Kansas City Star.’ ”

From the My-Hair-Is-On-Fire Desk: The Tactical Significance of Morgan Hill, CA with Marilyn Rupar (27 min) – from Dave Hodges – Generally, I don’t share stuff from Dave because of the major paranoia factors, but in the wake of the very strange power outages the last 2 days here in Cali, I thought this may be of interest.

An “All-Out Blizzard” That Is “Unheard Of For October” Is About To Hit Farms In The Midwest With Up To 2 Feet Of Snow – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/10/an-all-out-blizzard-that-is-unheard-of-for-october-is-about-to-hit-farms-in-the-midwest-with-up-to-2-feet-of-snow.html – “Farmers in the middle of the country are about to get hit by what could potentially be the worst October blizzard in U.S. history.  According to USA Today, “the massive size and intensity of this snowstorm is unheard of for October”.  In other words, we have never seen anything like this in the month of October ever before… Such a storm would have been disastrous enough in a normal year, but this has definitely not been a normal year for Midwest farmers.  As I detailed extensively in previous articles, endless rain and horrific flooding made planting season a complete and utter nightmare for many Midwest farmers this year.  Millions of acres did not get planted at all, and planting was seriously delayed on tens of millions of other acres.  As a result, corn, soybeans and other crops are simply not ready to be harvested in many parts of the Midwest, and now an unprecedented winter storm is barreling directly toward our heartland.” – Comment: This is likely the product of the oncoming Solar Minimum, as well as the highly advanced Weather Mod programming that is blowing warm air up into the Arctic region constantly and resulting in these “Polar Express” weather systems.

Iran says missiles strike its oil tanker off Saudi Arabia – by Nasser Karimi and Jon Gambrell – https://www.apnews.com/55f68b50763c40eeb25ee19027573d86 – “The attack reportedly took place around 5 a.m. and damaged two storerooms aboard the oil tanker Sabiti, state media reported. It also briefly caused an oil leak into the Red Sea near the Saudi port city of Jiddah that later was stopped, state-run IRNA news agency reported… The Sabiti turned on its tracking devices late Friday morning in the Red Sea, putting its location some 130 kilometers (80 miles) southwest of Jiddah, according to data from MarineTraffic.com. The ship is carrying some 1 million barrels of crude oil, according to an analysis from data firm Refinitiv… Lt. Pete Pagano, a spokesman for the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet overseeing the Mideast, said authorities there were ‘aware of reports of this incident,’ but declined to comment further.”

Is the Mormon Church Behind a Worldwide Child Sex Trafficking Ring Operating out of Arizona ?https://healthimpactnews.com/2019/is-the-mormon-church-behind-a-worldwide-child-sex-trafficking-ring-operating-out-of-arizona/ – “The second episode of the Medical Kidnap Show aired on KFNX 1100 Radio in Phoenix on October 10, 2019… (The show was knocked off of the air before it was finished. Health Impact News is still trying to reach the station to find out why.).. Host Rick Wood and producer Brian Shilhavy started off the show discussing how most of the nation’s child sex slaves that are trafficked in the U.S. come out of the nation’s Foster Care system… About 24 hours before Episode 2 of the Medical Kidnap Show was aired on KFNX in Phoenix, Mormon Paul Petersen, an adoption lawyer and Maricopa County Assessor who is allegedly the head of a smuggling ring that recruited Marshallese women “and offered a significant amount of money to place their babies for adoption,” was arrested in Arizona after an 18-month investigation… Petersen is also charged with 11 second and third-degree felonies in Utah, including human smuggling, sale of a child, communications fraud and pattern of unlawful activity… Petersen allegedly began setting up his child trafficking operation in the Marshall Islands when serving there as a Mormon missionary.”

Kiev, Again, Sabotaged Disengagement Of Troops In Eastern Ukraine – https://southfront.org/kiev-again-sabotaged-disengagement-of-troops-in-eastern-ukraine/ – “People’s Republic called on international organizations to influence Kiev in order to stop provocations near the power-separation station… He recalled that the first reports of shelling of the territory of the LPR came around 21:35 local time on October 8th, when the 72nd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine opened fire from BMP-1 and small arms at the Zolotoe- 5 checkpoint… ‘We also do not exclude that the organizers of such a provocation could have been nationalists who arrived the day before in the checkpoint of Zolotoe-4“ the LPR People’s Militia press service said… Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the “veterans” from the Nazi-infested volunteer battalions need to be talked to and asked to peacefully leave so the disengagement could happen… ‘Even a fool can do it by force. You see, this is the wrong approach. You need to talk with the veterans, explain your position, explain the president’s position, explain your public position, a position just like a person,’ Zelensky said during a press conference… ‘Let’s be honest, if there are veterans there, I respect them, but if they arrived armed, then this is wrong,’ he added.”Comment: Looks like the Ukie Neo-Nazis do pretty much whatever they want…

From the High-Strangeness Desk: PG&E Will Proactively Turn Off Power for Safety to Nearly 800,000 Customers Across Northern and Central CaliforniaPortions of 34 Counties Will be Impacted by Widespread, Severe Wind Event Beginning Wednesday – https://www.pgecurrents.com/2019/10/08/pge-will-proactively-turn-off-power-for-safety-to-nearly-800000-customers-across-northern-and-central-california-2/ – ” ‘The safety of our customers and the communities we serve is our most important responsibility, which is why PG&E has decided to turn power off to customers during this widespread, severe wind event. We understand the effects this event will have on our customers and appreciate the public’s patience as we do what is necessary to keep our communities safe and reduce the risk of wildfire,’ said Michael Lewis, PG&E’s senior vice president of Electric Operations.”

USA Today:  More than 1 million in California are without power to curb wildfire risk; more outages coming –  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/10/09/california-pge-power-outage-affect-millions-prevent-wildfire/3916848002/

David Goldberg Psyop: Phoney Messenger Discredits the Truth – by Henry Makow – https://www.henrymakow.com/2019/08/antisemites-are-being-tagged-for-extermination.html – “This story evolved when it was revealed that David Elias Goldman didn’t exist… It began as David Goldberg -“Anti Semites” Are Being Tagged for Extermination… You reveal the truth. Then you discredit it by having a phoney messenger.” – Comment: “David Goldberg” said that power outages would be used as a cover for rounding up “activists” opposed to Globalism and Zionist, Luciferian Sabbatean-Frankists.

The long-term planning to remake humanity as technocratic mind-controlled slaves: If They Were Saying This in 1971… – by Truthstream Media (Melissa Dykes) (20 min)

Personal statement in response to a friend’s extreme pessimism due to recent social deterioration: I think a major shift is coming. I think humanity is a wonderful addition to the unfoldment of the world-of-form, and that our potential is essentially unlimited. That is, assuming that we find a way to solve the “Human Systems Problem” under which “authority” over our societies has been seized by psychopaths with extreme disregard for the common human being and a total obsession with control over everything and everyone. We all share the same heart nature. We are all “doomed to success.” – eventually…

Ukrainian Radicals Sabotage Disengagement Of Troops In Region Of Donbasshttps://southfront.org/ukrainian-radicals-sabotage-disengagement-of-troops-in-region-of-donbass/ – “On October 7th, the disengagement of troops was planned to take place Zolote and Petrovske in Luhansk region. It didn’t happen… According to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko “Russian-backed militants” fired upon the cities and made it impossible to disengage… ‘The disengagement was supposed to start today, indeed it was agreed upon in Minsk by our negotiation team. (…) Unfortunately, a few days ago Petrivske and Zolote came under fire. As you may remember our decision was that the disengagement starts on the seventh day after peace stands on a particular site and there are no attacks,’ Prystaiko said… …According to the DPR, on October 7th the parties were to notify the OSCE of the whereabouts of their positions in Petrovsky and Zolotoy… ‘On our part, this obligation has already been fulfilled. But Kiev, instead of following the schedule, decided to fill the media space with completely destructive statements about the alleged shelling of pilot sites and the need to observe 7 days of calm,’ the DPR said in a statement.”

Altering Human Genetics Through Vaccination – by Jon Rappoport – Children’s Health Defense Note: CHD has internal documents in which the FDA acknowledges  that technology that allows for the creation of these new vaccines has outpaced their ability to predict adverse events. Shouldn’t our federal agencies be calling for a moratorium until we have that knowledge—especially since it is heavily reported that the CDC/FDA post-marketing surveillance systems are inadequate to pick up problems after licensure? – https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/altering-human-genetics-through-vaccination/ – ““NIAID Vaccine Research Center scientists have initiated Phase 1/2 studies of a universal flu vaccine strategy that includes an investigational DNA-based vaccine (called a DNA ‘prime’)… This is quite troubling, if you know what the phrase “DNA vaccine” means. It refers to what the experts are touting as the next generation of immunizations… Instead of injecting a piece of a virus into a person, in order to stimulate the immune system, synthesized genes would be shot into the body. This isn’t traditional vaccination anymore. It’s gene therapy.”

Environmentalists push for removal of Glen Canyon Damhttp://www.mohavedailynews.com/news/environmentalists-push-for-removal-of-glen-canyon-dam/article_12b25600-e677-11e9-b378-a3897106b7bd.html – “FLAGSTAFF (AP) — Environmental groups that have long pushed to bring down a huge dam along the Colorado River are suing the federal government, alleging it ignored climate science when approving a 20-year operating plan for the dam near the Arizona-Utah border… Glen Canyon Dam holds back Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the United States. It and Lake Mead, which straddles the Arizona-Nevada line, are key to ensuring Colorado River water gets to the 40 million people and the more than 7,000 square miles of farmland that depend on it… Drought and climate change already have reduced the river’s flow, forcing seven Western states to adopt a plan earlier this year to ensure the lake elevations don’t dip too low.”

The Repo Market Incident May Be The Tip Of The Iceberg – by Daniel Lacalle – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/repo-market-incident-may-be-tip-iceberg  – “This is a symptom of a larger problem that is starting to manifest in apparently unconnected events, like the failed auctions of negative-yielding eurozone bonds or the bankruptcy of companies that barely needed the equivalent of one day of repo market injection to finance the working capital of another year… This is a symptom of debt saturation and massive risk accumulation.  The evidence of the possibility of a major global slowdown, even a synchronized recession,  is showing that what financial institutions and investors have hoarded in recent years,  high-risk, low-return assets, is more dangerous than many of us believed… It is very likely that the Fed injections become a norm, not an anomaly, and the Fed’s balance sheet is already rising.”

5G Cell Phone Radiation: How the Telecom Companies Are Losing the Battle to Impose 5G Against the Will of the People – by Claire Edwards – https://www.globalresearch.ca/telcos-losing-battle-impose-5g/5691065 – “They thought that if they called their new, alleged “communications technology”, adapted from the military Active Denial Technology, “5G” or fifth generation, the public would just assume that it was more of the same as 4G, 3G or 2G. And if they could characterise the rollout as a race, the public would not have enough time to find out what a killer technology 5G is. How wrong they were! Not only has the public found out, but now they know how lethal previous generations of wireless technology – to be used concurrently with 5G – are as well… Below is the evidence from a number of different countries that the pushback is huge and growing. The telcos have lost the propaganda war, despite their control of the mainstream media, from which not a whisper of the dangers of 5G is heard, and of social media and Youtube, who have been desperately deleting millions of accounts to silence the naysayers… As this article went to press, support arrived from an unlikely source. In an impassioned speech before the United Nations General Assembly on 24 September 2019, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated that digital authoritarianism is not the stuff of dystopian fantasy but of an emerging reality.”

Turkey Will Launch Operation Against Kurdish Forces: Erdoganhttps://www.telesurenglish.net/news/Turkey-Will-Launch-Operation-Against-Kurdish-Forces-Erdogan-20191005-0005.html – “The air and ground operation east of the Euphrates river in Syria could start at any time, President Tayyip Erdogan said… The U.S.-backed force which controls the region, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) led by the Kurdish YPG militia, said it wanted stability but vowed to respond to any attack… ‘We will not hesitate to turn any unprovoked attack by Turkey into an all-out war on the entire border to defend ourselves and our people,’ SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali said.”

Western Zero-Sum Geopolitics is a Dead-Endhttps://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/10/04/western-zero-sum-geopolitics-is-a-dead-end/ – “The US and its Western allies are creating more international tensions and instability in a futile bid to carve the globe into “spheres of interest” and “exclusivity”. That’s the way Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov views it, and few objective observers of international relations could disagree with his admonishment… Russia’s top diplomat says the only way forward is for multilateralism to prevail and for all states to abide by the principles of the United Nations’ Charter, to which they are signatories… …The question is though: can US corporate capitalism and its militarist machine abide by that reasonable, minimal demand for international cooperation?.. If not, then the American political system and its coterie of Western minions are driving the world into an abysmal dead-end.”

NY Fed Announces Extension Of Overnight Repos Until Nov 4, Will Offer 8 More Term Repos – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/ny-fed-announces-extension-overnight-repos-until-nov-4-will-offer-8-more-term-repos – “Anyone who expected that the easing of the quarter-end funding squeeze in the repo market would mean the Fed would gradually fade its interventions in the repo market, was disappointed on Friday afternoon when the NY Fed announced it would extend the duration of overnight repo operations (with a total size of $75BN) for at least another month, while also offer no less than eight 2-week term repo operations until November 4, 2019, which confirms that the funding unlocked via term repo is no longer merely a part of the quarter-end arsenal but an integral part of the Fed’s overall “temporary” open market operations… which are starting to look quite permanent.”

New Weapons and the New Tactics Which They Make Possible: Three Examples – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/new-weapons-and-the-new-tactics-which-they-make-possible-three-examples/ – “The fact is that Russia has perfected an entire family of ballistic and cruise missiles which can be completely hidden from detection and which can be deployed literally anywhere on the planet. Even with nuclear warheads… This capability completely changes all the previous US deterrence/containment strategies (which are still halfway stuck in the Cold War and halfway stuck with low-intensity/counter-insurgency operations like what they have been doing (with no success whatsoever!) in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and in Latin America and Africa).” – Comment: Another very good article by The Saker, with many tidbits that can inform an understanding of the continuing posturing of the Western Powers against the Evil Russians. This includes the ongoing attempt to stifle the Britons’ efforts to leave the EU, including the now-being-revealed secret plans by the EUrocrats and quislings in the UK government to completely “give” the entire British military (including its nuclear capabilities) AND UK Intelligence Agencies to EU Military Unification, lock, stock and barrel. We must put our energies into calming international waters and manifesting a world of peace and non-confrontation.

Glyphosate can trigger aggressive breast cancer when combined with another risk factorhttps://www.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/19156-glyphosate-can-trigger-aggressive-breast-cancer-at-low-levels-when-combined-with-another-risk-factor – “In the study, scientists exposed noncancerous human breast cells to glyphosate in vitro over a course of 21 days. The cells were then placed in mice to assess tumour formation. Although cells exposed to glyphosate alone did not induce tumour growth, cancerous tumours did develop after glyphosate was combined with a type of gene regulatory molecule that is present in all humans.” – Regarding the horrors of glyphosate, where one end of this molecule will dock in the millions of glycine receptors throughout the human body, thereby derailing uncountable essential biological functions, all of this was well-known and documented by “The Powers” long before Round Up went on the market. Hanging would be too good for the perpetrators of this attack on the humans of the world.

New Agency Provides Personnel Vetting, Technology Protectionhttps://www.defense.gov/explore/story/Article/1975483/new-agency-provides-personnel-vetting-technology-protection/ – Officials unfurled the flag of the new Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency yesterday during a ceremony at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia, one day before the agency officially opened for business.

Mass shootings have hit 158 House districts so far this year – by Jordan Lancaster, James Jarvis, Sutton Dunwoodie and Cameron Hill – https://thehill.com/homenews/house/463949-mass-shootings-have-hit-158-house-districts-so-far-this-year – “More than a third of all House lawmakers represent districts where a mass shooting has occurred this year, highlighting the bipartisan pressure on Congress to take action on gun legislation after a wave of killings in Texas and Ohio during August… An analysis by The Hill found that about two-thirds of those shootings have taken place in districts represented by Democrats, many of whom represent cities hard-hit by the scourge of gun violence…”

Four years in Syria, Russia expands military base, eyes challenges ahead – by Anton Mardasov – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2019/10/russia-syria-hmeimim-military-campaign-anniversary.html – “In the run-up to the fourth anniversary of the launch of Russia’s military campaign in Syria, the Russian military announced Moscow is eyeing expansion and reconstruction of the Khmeimim​ air base in Syria’s Latakia province. The initiative, at the  initial stage, involves the rebuilding of the second runway to allow the facility to service more aircraft… (Also) the Russians constructed new aircraft hangars, able to shelter the Su-35 fighter jets and Su-34 bombers from occasional drone strikes… Dolgov added that the shelter hangars are equipped with a centralized system of fuel and lubricant provisions. As a result, the timelines of preparation for consecutive flights decreased significantly.

De-Escalation In Eastern Ukraine? Kiev Agrees To ‘Steinmeier Formula’https://southfront.org/de-escalation-in-eastern-ukraine-kiev-agrees-to-steinmeier-formula/ – “● It suggests that elections should be held in territories controlled by Luhansk and Donetsk, according to Ukrainian law; ● during the elections, Donbass would receive a special status; ● And after the OSCE recognizes the elections as fair and free, the law on the special status of Donbass should come into force and act indefinitely; ● It is assumed that this should accelerate the implementation of the Minsk agreement. Western sources speculate that this may also lead to the phased lifting of sanctions against Russia… The signing of the Steinmeier formula, though, led to nationalist protests in front of the Parliament in Kiev.

School Districts Use “Gaggle” To Monitor Students’ Free Speech And Social Media Posts – by MassPrivateI – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/10/school-districts-use-gaggle-to-monitor-students-free-speech-and-social-media-posts.html – “The Gaggle Safety Management Dashboard allows superintendents, principals and other educators who are responsible for student safety to investigate and answer the following questions: ● Which of my schools has the highest amount of incidents? What educational tools are my students using most frequently?  ● How severe are the incidents Gaggle Safety Representatives discover? ● Has the number of inappropriate incidents increased or decreased over time? ● How does my school or district’s incident rate compare with national averages.. Mr. Morgan was right, students will be walking on eggshells because they will be afraid of getting put on a watchlist… Gaggle is like Alexa on steroids… A Gaggle video called “do you know what your students are doing online?” is a damning account of exactly how invasive their threat to free speech is… Gaggle’s Bloomington, Illinois staff listens to and watches students social media content in real-time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

Three Saudi Brigades Annihilated in Devastating Houthi Offensive in Saudi Arabia – by Federico Pieraccini – https://theduran.com/three-saudi-brigades-annihilated-in-devastating-houthi-offensive-in-saudi-arabia/Possibly the best article out there on this Yemeni offensive against the Saudi Coalition.

Climate and the Money Trail – by F. William Engdahl – https://www.globalresearch.ca/climate-money-trail/5690209 – “Several years before Al Gore and others decided to use a young Swedish school girl to be the poster child for climate action urgency, or in the USA the call of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a complete reorganization of the economy around a Green New Deal, the giants of finance began devising schemes for steering hundreds of billions of future funds to investments in often worthless “climate” companies… In 2013 after years of careful preparation, a Swedish real estate company, Vasakronan, issued the first corporate “Green Bond.” They were followed by others including Apple, SNCF and the major French bank Credit Agricole. In November 2013 Elon Musk’s problem-riddled Tesla Energy issued the first solar asset-backed security. Today according to something called the Climate Bonds Initiative, more than $500 billion in such Green Bonds are outstanding. The creators of the bond idea state their aim is to win over a major share of the $45 trillion of assets under management globally which have made nominal commitment to invest in “climate friendly” projects.”

From the Honor-Among-Thieves Desk: SYRIA: Turkish Proxies Fight Over Looted Properties in Afrin – by Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/09/28/syria-turkish-proxies-fight-over-looted-properties-in-afrin/ – “According to local sources, a militant was killed and at least six others were injured during the clashes, which are still ongoing… The Turkish military and its proxies occupied Afrin in the early months of 2018. Since then, Turkish-backed groups have been looting the area and suppressing the locals in many horrendous ways… Despite the growing instability in Afrin, the Turkish military is yet to implement any measure to improve the situation. Ankara could be avoiding any possible tension (with) its own proxies.”

First Bill Of Land Reform Law Outlines 72% Of Ukrainian Land Is For Salehttps://southfront.org/first-bill-of-land-reform-law-outlines-72-of-ukrainian-land-is-for-sale/ – “Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko condemned the land reform, saying that it would sell 72% of Ukraine’s land to foreigners… ‘The first thing this law is about is that 42 million hectares of Ukrainian land can be sold in full, including to foreigners,” she said… Tymoshenko clarified that 42 million hectares of land is 72% of the territory of Ukraine… She urged for a referendum before selling most of Ukraine to foreigners.”

Operation Victory From God: Houthis Neutralize Thousands Of Saudi-Led Coalition Personnel In Large-Scale Ambushhttps://southfront.org/operation-victory-from-god-houthis-neutralize-thousands-of-saudi-led-coalition-personnel-in-large-scale-ambush/ – “Thousands of Saudi-led coalition personnel were killed, injured or captured by the Houthis and their local allies in large-scale ambush, dubbed “Operation Victory from God”, a spokesman for the Yemeni group announced on September 28… In an official statement, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari described the ambush, which took place near the southern Saudi province of Najran, as “the biggest luring operation” since the outbreak of the Yemeni war”

Final Collapse Is Inexorable – by M.N. Gordon – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/final-collapse-inexorable – “Over the last two weeks the Fed has pumped hundreds of billions of dollars into the financial system through the overnight repo market.  These repo operations are scheduled to continue every business day until October 10, with the option for them to continue longer.  Our guess is that the Fed will continue until something cracks, which may be much sooner than expected… Stormy winds are blowing across credit markets, twisting and bending them like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.  The Fed, despite its scientific fascia, is relying on judgement.  Guided by gut, it’s doing all it knows how to do; create credit and inject it into financial system… Greenspan got us into this mess…and there’s no dampening it.  Final collapse is inexorable.”

Israel Believed Behind Overnight Attack On Iran’s ‘Land Bridge’ From Iraq To Syria – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israel-believed-behind-overnight-attack-irans-land-bridge-iraq-syria – “Another mystery airstrike was conducted over Iraq late Friday night, after a summer that’s witnessed Baghdad blame Israel for a series of unprecedented violations of its airspace to carry out alleged strikes on Iran-linked Shia militias in the country… This newest incident involved an attack on Imam Ali base near the border with Syria, in an area which Israeli defense officials have voiced concern Iran is utilizing Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) to aid Syrian forces in establishing a security corridor stretching along the Syrian-Iraq border, or so-called Iranian ‘land bridge’ ”

Stopping Brexit Is About Saving the European Union – by Tom Luongo – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/09/27/stopping-brexit-is-about-saving-the-european-union/ – “The speed with which this was pulled together is the clue that this was a ‘stitch-up’ from the very beginning. Time is running out to stop a No-Deal Brexit, or any kind of meaningful Brexit for that matter, and therefore everything must be turbo-charged… That’s why I feel this ruling was baked into the pie before the trial even began… Because, make no mistake, losing the UK from the EU’s budget would be catastrophic for an EU staring at massive capital outflows as helicopter money happens and bond yields reverse from their current bubble levels… The opinion of Parliament in Britain cannot sink any lower. That anger will now be transferred to the courts. The entire Brexit process has been a layer by layer unmasking of the autocratic prerogatives of the ruling class. With each setback in the Brexit process the British people are getting an object lesson in just how corrupt their system is and how badly they have been betrayed… The hope by The Davos Crowd is that they will get fed up and tune it all out, that they’ll give up and let the UK be steamrolled. The polls tell a far different story.”

US Repo-calypse: The Ghost Of Failed Banks Returns – by Alasdair Macleod via GoldMoney.com – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/us-repo-calypse-ghost-failed-banks-returns – “That being the case, a new banking crisis is not only in the making, for which the repo problem serves as an early warning, but it could escalate quite rapidly. Given the rethinking that must be taking place in the boardrooms at all the major US banks, bankers will be looking at not only their exposure to Deutsche, but also the implications for their wider lending exposure to other American counterparties, particularly those owned by foreign banks… Understanding there will be a transition of attitudes from investing in CLOs and leveraged loans to a concern over their soundness is the key to realising how a credit crisis evolves. This time, as well as a mountain of derivative contracts, there is the further problem of synthetic ETFs, many of which are sponsored and managed by the same bank. For example, Deutsche Bank controls 42 ETFs in the US market alone, worth $14.6bn, all of which appear to be synthetic… Assuming this analysis is correct, there is probably not much the Fed can do, other than react to events. Like all central banks, the Fed relies on models that cannot incorporate the changing attitudes of market participants. Just imagine, if the Fed did spot a developing crisis in advance and called in the major bankers in an effort to get them to help stabilise the situation, they would likely leave the meeting with the clear impression things are worse than they thought, and their clear duty to their shareholders is to liquidate all positions at risk… If it took two months between Libor freezing in December 2007 and Northern Rock being rescued by the UK government and if that timing is replicated today, a new banking crisis will hit in November. It could easily take longer to materialise, but there’s no guarantee it won’t escalate even more rapidly than that.”

The CIO’s guide to quantum computing – by Satoshi Nakamotohttps://www.satoshinakamotoblog.com/the-cios-guide-to-quantum-computingComment: “Satoshi Nakamoto” is the inventor of Bitcoin

What Google’s quantum computer means for Bitcoin – by Jose Antonio Lanz – https://finance.yahoo.com/news/google-quantum-computer-means-bitcoin-165320736.html – “What you need to know about Bitcoin to understand the potential threat of quantum computing is that its architecture relies on two algorithms: ECDSA for digital signatures and SHA-256 as a hash function. If you reuse a wallet address and make a transaction, you expose your public key... So, yes, a quantum computer could use Shor’s algorithm to get your private from your public key, as Jack Matier of the Quantum Resistant Ledger recently explained in a Medium post. But don’t panic just yet… The most optimistic scientific estimates say that even if this were possible, it won’t happen during this decade (enough time to fork Bitcoin and make it quantum proof).” (emphases added)

Sound Familiar? Banks Are Saddling Fannie & Freddie With Risky Mortgages, Study Finds – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/sound-familiar-banks-are-saddling-fannie-freddie-risky-mortgages-study-finds – “A few unfortunately-placed hurricanes could leave US taxpayers shouldering billions of dollars in worthless mortgages on homes in natural disaster-prone areas, while the banks that originally underwrote those mortgages get off scott-free. In a scenario that might sound familiar to readers who remember the run-up to the financial crisis, new research has found that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been buying mortgages on homes in disaster-prone areas and packaging them up into securities, without charging a premium that accurately reflects long-term disaster risks.”

Military Suicides Jump to Record High – by Lolita C. Baldor (AP) – https://www.truthdig.com/articles/military-suicides-jump-to-record-high/ – “Asked about the deaths in the crew of the aircraft carrier, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said, ‘I wish I could tell you we have an answer to prevent further, future suicides in the Armed Services. We don’t. We are caught up in what some call a national epidemic of suicide among our youth.’ ”

September Container Shipping Rates Collapse 43% Forcing Carriers To Slash Capacity – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/september-container-shipping-rates-collapse-43-forcing-carriers-slash-capacity – “Container shipping rates continue to move lower into the fourth quarter of 2019, according to FreightWaves. The drop in price comes as a result of the most recent round of tariffs discouraging U.S. importers from front loading orders. As a result, ocean carriers are looking to cut even more shipping capacity in hopes of meeting tepid demand into the back end of the year… Spot rates on the Freightos Baltic Daily Index for China-North America West Coast were down 8% from last week, falling to $1,327 per forty-foot equivalent unit. Container rates are down 34% since the beginning of the year, despite the industry now being in peak season.” (emphasis added)

Buyer Beware: Peloton IPO Crash Tells Us The Global IPO Market Is Going Bust – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/buyer-beware-peloton-ipo-crash-tells-us-global-ipo-market-going-bust – “And the reason for the horrible performance of the Peloton IPO could be due to the global IPO market is collapsing as a worldwide recession is imminent, reported Dealogic, first reported by the Financial Times.”

US Preparing Strikes On Syria Over Renewed Chemical Weapons Accusation: Report – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-preparing-strikes-syria-over-renewed-chemical-weapons-accusation-report –  ‘…the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro reported on Friday, echoing broader Russian media reports… “It can be expected that the U.S. will launch airstrikes on Syria in the very near future (probably within the next two weeks), using false accusations of using chemical weapons by Damascus,” the publication reported, citing a representative from Syrian intelligence.”

Shocking New Survey Finds Most Americans Are Completely Unprepared For The Next Recession – by Michael Snyder – https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/shocking-new-survey-finds-most-americans-are-completely-unprepared-next-recession – “Just like in 2008, most Americans are living right on the edge financially, and so any sort of an economic downturn is going to be extremely painful for tens of millions of American families.  When you have not built up a financial cushion, any sort of a setback can be absolutely disastrous.  During the last recession, millions of Americans suddenly lost their jobs, and because most of them were living paycheck to paycheck a lot of them suddenly couldn’t pay their mortgages.  In the end, millions of Americans lost their homes during the “subprime mortgage meltdown”, and today the housing bubble is even larger than it was back then.

Illinois Parents Sue Doctors, Hospitals, and DCFS for Medical Kidnapping After Refusing Vitamin K Shot at Birthhttps://healthimpactnews.com/2019/illinois-parents-sue-doctors-hospitals-and-dcfs-for-medical-kidnapping-after-refusing-vitamin-k-shot-at-birth/ – “The Boughers… …had agreed to sign a waiver confirming their wishes that the new baby — their fifth child — not receive vitamin K, based on their beliefs that God’s creation isn’t automatically deficient or flawed at birth… But instead of offering them a form, the Boughers allege, the nurse announced she was reporting the couple to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and left the room with the newborn. It would be about 12 hours before they got the child back, the couple said… ‘I honestly could not understand what was going on,’ Angela Bougher said through tears in a recent interview. ‘I was in total shock. I’ve never not had my baby right away.’.. On Monday, the Boughers and several other parents filed a sweeping federal lawsuit accusing the agency, its current and former leaders, a number of doctors and three hospitals of violating their constitutional rights just after the births of their children. Hours that should have been filled with happiness and family photos were instead filled with uncertainty, they said, as children were temporarily taken into protective custody, DCFS caseworkers were called and the parents were made to feel like criminals.” – The lawsuit contends DCFS and medical staff broke state and federal law by improperly seizing newborns or threatening to do so, said Richard Dvorak a lawyer for the families. It alleges that doctors continued to coerce parents, citing the inevitability of DCFS intervention, even though they knew the policy had been rescinded.

NVIC Vaccine Awareness Weekhttps://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Awareness-Week-(1)/2019-vaccine-awareness-week.aspx – From National Vaccine Information Center

EXPOSED: All the Queen’s Agents and Corporations that Control the World – from Betsy and Thomas – https://aim4truth.org/2018/04/17/exposed-all-the-queens-agents-and-corporations-that-control-the-world/  – “English law prohibits questioning the Monarchy about their personal holdings and business… This is true of most of Europe’s royalty, whether enthroned or not. The wealth of the Monarchies is held outside of the countries that made the wealth. The British Crown’s offshore banks hold the greatest personal wealth in the world estimated at $35 trillion. Perhaps the British Crown still owns and controls its Commonwealth Nations, including the American ‘colonies.’ ”

Google leads $100 million investment in cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike – by Robert Hackett – https://fortune.com/2015/07/13/google-100-million-series-c-crowdstrike/ – “Google Capital, the two-year-old growth equity arm of search giant Google (GOOG), announced its first security investment on Monday morning… The fund has pumped $100 million into cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike. It was joined by cloud computing company Rackspace (RAX), which is a customer, and the firm’s existing investors Accel and Warburg Pincus. The new infusion represents a Series C round for the Irvine, Calif.-based company, bringing its total funding raised to date to $156 million… “Security is of foremost interest to Google,” said Google Capital partner Gene Frantz, mentioning Google’s expertise in protecting IT assets. ‘We identified what we think will be a very large and very important security company in the world.’ ”

‘A Doll For Everyone’: Meet Mattel’s Gender-Neutral Doll – https://time.com/5684822/mattel-gender-neutral-doll/ – The population of young people who identify as gender-nonbinary is growing. Though no large surveys have been done of kids younger than 10, a recent study by the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that 27% of California teens identify as gender-nonconforming. And a 2018 Pew study found 35% of Gen Z-ers (born 1995 to 2015) say they personally know someone who uses gender-neutral pronouns like they and them, compared with just 16% of Gen X-ers (born 1965 to 1980). The patterns are projected to continue with Generation Alpha, born in 2010 and later. Those kids, along with boys who want to play with dolls and girls who identify as “tomboys” and don’t gravitate toward fashion doll play, are an untapped demographic. Mattel currently has 19% market share in the $8 billion doll industry; gaining just 1 more point could translate into $80 million in revenue for the company….

From the If-You-Read-One-Article-This-Week Desk: The Fed Created The Everything Bubble And A Liquidity Crisis — What Happens Next? – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/09/the-fed-created-the-everything-bubble-and-a-liquidity-crisis-what-happens-next.html – “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the crash of the Everything Bubble is accelerating around the same time that geopolitical chaos is erupting.  We have a trade war that is unlikely to end, with a US/China meeting in October that will probably produce little to no results.  We have a Brexit circus which is supposed to play out in October.  We have a crisis with Iran as the US is set to move troops into Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the next month. And now we have an “impeachment inquiry” circus erupting over Trump, Biden and the Ukraine.  That sure is a lot of distractions for the general public as their economy crumbles around them… To understand why the Fed would deliberately engineer an economic crisis, I suggest reading my article on the economic end game HERE. It is important to realize that the Fed has not “lost control” of the situation, nor is the Fed the bumbling and witless institution some alternative analysts make it out to be. Rather, the Fed is perfectly aware of the damage it is causing, and it is perfectly aware of how much this chaos will benefit certain globalist organizations.(Emphasis Added)

How The Sabbatian-Frankist Death Cult Runs The World (1hr 32min) – David Icke interviewed by Adam Green, possibly Icke’s best interview in quite a while

UK Parliament Paralysed, PM Boris Johnson Sayshttps://sputniknews.com/europe/201909251076889475-uk-parliament-paralysed-pm-boris-johnson-says/  – A good article on the present moment in Brexit Land.

US triples regime-change aid to Guaido, doling out $52mn to restore ‘democratic governance’ in Venezuelahttps://www.rt.com/news/469561-us-assistance-guaido-millions/

Chavista Lawmakers Open to Dialogue on National Assemblyhttps://www.telesurenglish.net/news/Chavista-Lawmakers-Open-to-Dialogue-on-National-Assembly-20190925-0002.html – ” ‘We want to rescue respect, tolerance and willingness to dialogue…we know that the right wing is a majority, but that doesn’t block the possibility that in this National Assembly we can dialogue with respect and tolerance.’.. As Chavista lawmakers return to their seats in the National Assembly, they have signaled that they are prepared to begin a dialogue for the reinstitutionalization of Venezuela’s National Assembly. The Assembly is dominated by the opposition and was deemed to be no longer legitimate after breaking the law in 2017. The overtures by Chavista lawmakers is part of the ongoing peace talks between the government and some of the opposition.”

Meet the Quds 1 – by Fabian Hinz – https://www.armscontrolwonk.com/archive/1208062/meet-the-quds-1/ – “If the pictures showing the Quds 1 wreckage in Saudi Arabia are indeed connected to the recent Abqaiq attack, it would seem more likely that the attack originated from a place closer to Eastern Saudi Arabia than Northern Yemen – potentially Iraq, Iran or perhaps even from ships. But then again that is a big if at the current moment… All of this leaves the question of just who developed and built the Quds 1. The idea that impoverished war-torn Yemen would be able to develop a cruise missile without any outside assistance seems far-fetched. Iran’s previous supply of missiles to the Houthis and the fact that the country uses TJ100 engines in its drone program do imply that the Iran could be behind the Quds 1.”

From the Totalitarian-Tiptoe Desk: Penn State Prof: Social Credit Will Shift Law in the West “From Constitution… to Analytics and Algorithm” – by Daniel Taylor – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/09/penn-state-prof-social-credit-will-shift-law-in-the-west-from-constitution-to-analytics-and-algorithm.html – “In the paper, titled “Next Generation Law: Data Driven Governance and Accountability Based Regulatory Systems in the West, and Social Credit Regimes in China“, Backer describes moves to social credit in the West as “fractured”, but gives guidance on how societal norms could be steadily pushed to accept this system… Backer proposes that the “great culture management machinery” of the West normalize the idea of social credit and sharing private data. Backer writes: ‘But is it possible to socialize the masses, or even mass democracy as a collective, to embrace this pattern of data disclosure beyond these immediately self-serving closed loop systems? Would it be possible for the state to develop systems for the enforcement of laws (criminal and regulatory) that depends on intelligence by inducing the masses to serve as positive contributors of data necessary for enforcement or regulation? The answer, in Western liberal democracies, may depend on the ability of the great culture management machinery of Western society– its television, movies and other related media–to develop a narrative in which such activity is naturalized within Western culture.”

Secret FBI Subpoenas For Personal Data Go Far Beyond Previously Known – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/secret-fbi-subpoenas-personal-data-go-far-beyond-previously-known – “Secret subpoenas issued by the FBI for personal data go far deeper than previously known, according to new documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, according to the New York Times… The agency says the sweeping requests are crucial to counterterrorism efforts – however the new records reveal that the FBI requests go far beyond Silicon Valley; ‘encompassing scores of banks, credit agencies, cellphone carriers and even universities,’ according to the report… The demands can scoop up a variety of information, including usernames, locations, IP addresses and records of purchases. They don’t require a judge’s approval and usually come with a gag order, leaving them shrouded in secrecy. Fewer than 20 entities, most of them tech companies, have ever revealed that they’ve received the subpoenas, known as national security letters. -New York Times… ‘This is a pretty potent authority for the government,’ said University of Texas law professor, Stephen Vladeck. ‘The question is: Do we have a right to know when the government is collecting information on us?’ ”

The Attack on Saudi Arabia’s Oil Facility. The Patriot Air Defence System Failed. Why? – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky – https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-attack-on-saudi-arabias-oil-facility-the-patriot-air-defence-system-failed-why/5689779 – “Why did it fail?.. There is of course the fashionable thesis that the US Patriot System is flawed in comparison to Russia’s state of the art S-400 air defence system. This assessment is correct but is it relevant?… Other reports point to the fact that the cruise missiles and UAVs were flying at low altitude (and could not be detected by the radar system)… ‘These were low-flying cruise missiles. They were coming in far below the engagement zone for Patriot. So you wouldn’t have tried to hit them with Patriot.’ (CNBC).. But this does not explain the total failure of Saudi Arabia’s air defence system on that particular day. The Patriot system (PAC) is extremely versatile and advanced. The apologetic reports on the failure of the Patriot Missile system in intercepting low-flying missiles are contradictory (focusing allegedly on weak radar capabilities at low altitude)… The US-made Patriot mobile air defense system produced by Raytheon  is specifically ‘designed to intercept tactical ballistic missiles, low-flying cruise missiles and aircraft.’ (I24news.tv, May 10, 2019). It uses an advanced aerial interceptor missile and high-performance radar systems… The attack on Saturday September 14, was made up of a total of 18 drones (UAVs) and seven missiles.” (emphasis added) – Comment: I’m not sure where Prof. Chossudovsky got his figures for the number of weapons used in the attacks.

Ron Paul: ‘We’re in the Biggest Bond Bubble in History and It’s Going to Burst’ – by JT Crowe – https://moneyandmarkets.com/ron-paul-biggest-bond-bubble-history/ – “With talk about negative interest rates from U.S. President Donald Trump, Paul said the danger of the bubble ballooning to unprecedented levels could speed the demise of the markets… ‘You don’t know this precise time. But you know it can happen,’ he said. ‘How do you sell a bond that pays a negative rate? Who’s going to jump up and down?’.. ‘I don’t think anything even existed coming close to what we’re facing today,’ he later added.”

Crises in the Middle-East and a Few Hopefully Useful Pointers – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/crises-in-the-middle-east-and-a-few-hopefully-useful-pointers/ – “For one thing, had it been Iran, the strike would have been far more massive and would have only been a part of a much bigger, full-scale, attack not only on Saudi oil facilities, but also on all crucial CENTCOM installations and forces. There is no way the Iranians would have opened major hostilities (and these strikes were definitely described by the Saudis as “major”) just to wait for a massive US/KSA/Israeli retaliation. The Iranians are most certainly not going to repeat Saddam Hussein’s crucial mistake and allow the US/CENTCOM/NATO/Israel/KSA the time needed to prepare for a massive attack on Iran. I am monitoring various “indicators and warnings” which would suggest that the US is up to no good, and so far I have noticed only one potentially worrying event: MSC Sealift and US transportation Command has ordered a no-notice turbo activation of between 23 to 25 ships from the 46 ship Ready Reserve Force (RRF have to be 5-day ready).”

Book Review: “In Search of Colombia: Social and Political Fragments and Perspectives from the Past to the Present” – by Daniel Edgar – https://southfront.org/book-review-in-search-of-colombia-social-and-political-fragments-and-perspectives-from-the-past-to-the-present/ – “According to this reading of history and contemporary developments, the State has only resorted to violence and oppressive measures against large swathes of Colombian society through necessity, in order to defend democracy, the rule of law, private property and the rights and interests of all Colombians. The alternative explanation for the prevalence of widespread social and armed conflict in Colombia is that the emergence and persistence of insurgent groups has largely been a defensive measure taken by Colombian people in response to widespread violence and oppression instigated habitually by the State (as well as large business-owners and landlords) in order to preserve the power and privileges of the traditional ruling classes, and the stubborn refusal of the ruling elites to open political and economic spaces and opportunities for other sectors of Colombian society.”

Another Bombshell Book Crushing the Holohoax Lie, by Gerard Menuhin, Son of Jewish Violin Legend Yehudi Menuhin – a Review – Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil with a link to a FREE professional quality pdf version of this exceptional work from the publisher (!) – by Frederick Toeben – https://russia-insider.com/en/history/another-bombshell-book-crushing-holohoax-lie-son-jewish-violin-legend-yehudi-menuhin-review – “A book of monumental importance for the people of the world today. Many know that something is not right in the world. Nations engage in perpetual war while bankers and armaments makers line their pockets from the carnage. The average citizen of the world has been cut out of the decision-making process of government, whether he lives in a democracy, republic, theocracy or dictatorship… All the while, the ruling elite grow stronger and richer as the real producers struggle to survive. Behind the scenes, events are controlled by a coterie of ethnic puppetmasters who work their marionettes in high places out of public view. How did this world get to the dark place it is today? Who could have stopped it and what can we do today?.. The book consists of three sections. The first section concerns Adolf Hitler, his character and intentions, and the real causes leading up to the outbreak of WWII, including the actions of the real culprits and the rejection of the great lie… The second section enlarges on the activities of the real culprits, provides a historical overview of their progress, their nature, their power over finance and the media, and the methods by which they achieved it. It includes insights into Freemasonry, the European revolutions, the influence and control of education and foreign policy, the creation of the EU, the New World Order and the evolution of the plan through the same powers and their proxies, since the 17th century up to the present… The third section concerns the First and Second World Wars (what the author refers to as “the Second Thirty Years War”), their conception, funding and inescapable continuity; current laws against freedom of expression, and the evolution of the Orwellian state; the importance of U.S. support for the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, and Communism’s significance in the plan; the true origins of the enemy; Palestine’s occupation and its fate as an example of our common fate; plus much more.”

Maine or Mogadishu? African ‘Refugees’ Turn White Paradise Into Crime-Ridden Hellhole – by John Q. Publius – https://russia-insider.com/en/society/maine-or-mogadishu-african-refugees-turn-white-paradise-crime-ridden-hellhole/ri27680 – “As ostensible refugees, this naturally begs a couple of questions, namely: how can they afford to travel such distances with no income and just the clothes on their backs? How are they able to plan such a logistically-demanding trip? Why do they have international media and legal contacts?[1]… I took it upon myself to attempt to answer these questions, and have discovered in an almost-perfect analogue with what’s happening in Europe an existing support system and network that appears to be funneling migrants to particular pre-determined locales for reasons that will be discussed in the forthcoming pieces. The primary actors and organizations, and their connections to what at first blush appears to be an isolated incident but is anything but, will be revealed. Any treatment of the conflagration of aliens spreading across the whole of the United States must first start with a border so porous it might as well be non-existent, though.”

“This Institutional Suppression Of Free Thought, Inquiry, & Dissent Has A Systemic Cost” – by Charles Hugh Smith – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/chs-institutional-suppression-free-thought-inquiry-dissent-has-systemic-cost – “This institutional suppression of free thought, inquiry and dissent has a systemic cost. A corrupt Orthodoxy devoid of new ideas, an Orthodoxy devoted to maintaining the wealth, status and power of insiders regardless of cost, is a brittle, fragile, unstable system, and all the efforts of the corrupt clergy to impose uniform acceptance of the goodness and rightness of a debauched, corrupt, self-serving status quo will only increase the scale of its eventual collapse.”

Major Red Flag: The Fed Shocks Everyone With An Emergency Intervention In The Repo Market For The First Time Since 2008 – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/09/major-red-flag-the-fed-shocks-everyone-with-an-emergency-intervention-in-the-repo-market-for-the-first-time-since-2008.html – “And now that the Fed has begun to intervene, when will they be able to stop?.. Will they have to keep doing it for the rest of the week?.. And what happens if interest rates begin to go wild again next week or next month?.. In essence, Pandora’s Box has now been opened, and things could get really crazy moving forward.  According to Zero Hedge, if this currently repo operation is not sufficient to calm things down, the Fed could soon formally launch a new quantitative easing program… Of course, quantitative easing is something that should never be done unless we have a major crisis on our hands, and with each passing day it is becoming clearer that the global economy is headed for enormous trouble.”

Russia: ‘US Spy Plane Operated Drones That Attacked Hmeymim Base in Syria’ – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/09/20/russia-us-spy-plane-operated-drones-that-attacked-hmeymim-base-in-syria/ – ” ‘Thirteen drones moved according to common combat battle deployment, operated by a single crew. During all this time the American Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours,’ he noted… When the drones met with the electronic countermeasures of the Russian systems, they switched to a manual guidance mode, he said. ‘Manual guidance is carried out not by some villagers, but by the Poseidon-8, which has modern equipment. It undertook manual control,’ the deputy defense minister noted… ‘When these 13 drones faced our electronic warfare screen, they moved away to some distance, received the corresponding orders and began to be operated out of space and receiving help in finding the so-called holes through which they started penetrating. Then they were destroyed,’ Fomin reported… The attack was successfully repelled: seven drones were downed, and control over six drones was gained through electronic warfare systems. The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the solutions used by the militants could be received only from a technologically advanced country and warned about the danger of repeating such attacks in any country of the world.”

Security Council: Two draft resolutions, zero consensus on ceasefire in Syria’s Idlibhttps://news.un.org/en/story/2019/09/1046802 – “Belgium, Germany and Kuwait tabled a draft proposing a humanitarian ceasefire, which garnered 12 out of 15 votes… Permanent members Russia and China used their right to veto, blocking its adoption. Their own resolution, which highlighted terrorism concerns by extremist groups operating inside the region, also failed to pass, with nine members voting against and four abstaining.” – Comment: From the composition of the “UN Members” tabling these resolutions, and of the ways the Security Council members voted on them, it is clear that the UN is a captured organization totally out of touch with the reality of what’s happening on the ground in Idlib. But as George Carlin might say, “Nobody seems to notice, Nobody seems to care…”

“World at a Crossroads and a System of International Relations for the Future” by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for “Russia in Global Affairs” magazine, September 20, 2019http://www.mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/3792556?p_p_id=101_INSTANCE_cKNonkJE02Bw&_101_INSTANCE_cKNonkJE02Bw_languageId=en_GB – “So, what do we have as a result? In politics, erosion of the international legal basis, growth of instability and unsustainability, chaotic fragmentation of the global landscape and deepening mistrust between those involved in the international life. In the area of security, blurring of the dividing line between military and non-military means of achieving foreign policy goals, militarization of international relations, increased reliance on nuclear weapons in US security doctrines, lowering the threshold for the use of such armaments, the emergence of new hotbeds of armed conflicts, the persistence of the global terrorist threat, and militarization of the cyberspace. In the world economy, increased volatility, tougher competition for markets, energy resources and their supply routes, trade wars and undermining the multilateral trade system. We can add a surge of migration and deepening of ethnic and religious strife. Do we need such a “rules-based” world order?” – Comment: This is a major policy statement by Lavrov, which would well be covered in all of the main Western media, for the benefit of us all. However, it likely won’t be.

Is the United Nations Becoming a Public Relations Asset for Wall Street? – by Carla Stea – https://www.globalresearch.ca/united-nations-becoming-public-relations-asset-wall-street/5689620 – “The United Nations has made its 2030 Sustainable Development Goals the hallmark of its contribution to the world, and to humanity.  In effect, the SDG’s are the justification for the existence of the United Nations.  There is one major problem with this goal:  as is evident, without major transformation in the global economic architecture, the SDG’s will not only fail to be achieved, but, according to several expert reports, progress toward achievement of these goals has actually been reversed… While the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a crucial target toward maximizing the fulfillment and happiness of every human being throughout the world,  and are of course, the noblest humanitarian goal toward which the United Nations, or any/every organization should aspire, it is acknowledged by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that failure to meet to goals of the SDG is a great danger, and there is a plea for funding for the SDG’s which is a Pyrric search, as the United Nations lacks the courage to confront the fact that the distorted pernicious priorities of its principle funders, the United States, Great Britain, etc., which spend trillions of dollars on their military and especially nuclear weapons development are the problem, the most dangerous and perverted developments of monopoly capitalism.  The one trillion dollars that the United States has committed to the development of more sophisticated and deadly forms of nuclear explosives could fund the entire Sustainable Development Goals, fulfilling the entire 2030 Agenda.” – Comment: The “2030 Sustainable Development Goals” are just the latest iteration of UN Agenda 21, which is a Globalist program to control humanity through “austerities” and the enforcement of a Technocratic “meritocracy” which will usher in “sustained” scientific Feudalism and Tyranny.

The Price of “Freedom”? US Drone Massacres Dozens of Afghan Farmers as They Slept – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/09/the-price-of-freedom-us-drone-massacres-dozens-of-afghan-farmers-as-they-slept.html – ” The workers had lit a bonfire and were sitting together when a drone targeted them,’ tribal elder Malik Rahat Gul told Reuters by telephone from Wazir Tangi… According to Reuters, a survivor of the drone strike said about 200 laborers were sleeping in five tents pitched near the farm when the attack happened… ‘Some of us managed to escape, some were injured but many were killed,’ said Juma Gul, a resident of northeastern Kunar province who had traveled along with laborers to harvest and shell pine nuts this week… Naturally, the US is responding to the situation with a canned response and refusing to accept responsibility… ‘U.S. forces conducted a drone strike against Da’esh (IS) terrorists in Nangarhar,’ said Colonel Sonny Leggett, a spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. ‘We are aware of allegations of the death of non-combatants and are working with local officials to determine the facts.’

Greater Idlib: Is Syrian Army Advance Inevitable?https://southfront.org/syrias-idlib-stronghold-of-democracy-or-hotbed-for-terrorism/ – “Before the conflict, the province of Idlib had a population of 1.5 million people. The UN says that some 3 million people currently live in Idlib. Most of them are Sunni Arabs, some are Syrian Turkomans protected by Turkey. Most of the members of other ethnic and religious communities (like Shias or Christians) were forced to flee from the area or were murdered by radicals controlling the area. Reports speculate that about 40% of the people now living in Greater Idlib come from other previously militant-held areas. These are current and former members of militant groups, their families and relatives. These predetermined the position of Idlib as the main hotbed of terrorism in the modern Syria… From the political point of view,  the vast majority of the leadership of the Idlib militant groups and the entities affiliated with them align their policies with the attitude of Turkey. Publicly, they declare that the main goal of their efforts is the victory of the so-called Syrian Revolution and the reformation of the Syrian governance system under Sharia law. Nonetheless, these claims are just a formal part of the militants’ official propaganda. The actions of HTS and its allied groups during the past years demonstrate that they are in fact seeking to create a de-facto independent quasi-state under their own control and as a partial protectorate of Turkey.”

Airstrike on Iran-backed militia near Iraq-Syria border said to kill at least 5 – Reports say strike hits base belonging to Popular Mobilization Force for second time in two days; some have blamed Israel for attacks – by TOI staff and Judah Ari Gross – https://www.timesofisrael.com/airstrike-on-iran-backed-militia-near-iraq-syria-border-said-to-kill-at-least-5/ – “According to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 10 pro-Iranian fighters were killed in an airstrike Tuesday by unmanned aerial vehicles, which reportedly targeted a training camp and ammunition storehouse… The Observatory and activist collective Deir Ezzor 24 said the strikes occurred near a newly constructed, but not yet operational Syrian border crossing with Iraq. The opening of the crossing, planned by Iraq and Syria, had been postponed several times in recent weeks.”

Will the IMF, the Federal Reserve, Negative Interest Rates and Digital Money Kill the Western Economy? – by Peter Koenig – https://www.globalresearch.ca/will-the-imf-the-federal-reserve-negative-interest-rates-and-digital-money-kill-the-western-economy/5689200 – “A horrendous trial on how an entire country, India, with the world’s second largest population, may react to demonization, was introduced in 2016 by President Modi, bending to the pressure of the western financial system, with support of the IMF and implementation funding by USAID. It amounted in a disastrous and cruel demonetization, invalidating almost over-night the most popular 100 Rupee (Rs) bank note, replacing it with a 200 Rs note – which in most places, especially in rural towns, where banks are scarce, was not available. Never mind that less than half of the Indian population has a bank account, where the bank note exchange transactions had to be carried out… The sudden disappearance of the most popular bank note – more than 80% of all monetary cash transactions in India took place in 100 Rs notes – was a proxy to digitization of money. Countless people starved to death especially in rural areas, because their 100 Rs were declared worthless and became unacceptable to buy food… Many have no or little idea, though, to what extent the private sector is involved in setting up such a hermetic countrywide data bank for the government. – Even if the regulator is within the government and you trust your government, how much can you trust the profit-oriented private sector in protecting your data?.. The surveillance state that you, among other clandestine intrusions into your privacy, will allow by willy-nilly accepting digitization of money, and eventually digitization of your entire private data, pales Orwell’s imagination of “1984”. Every citizen is registered in every western “security agency’s” electronic data bank – and of course those of the empire and Middle East affiliate, Israel, CIA, NSA, FBI, Mossad – and so on – no escaping anymore.”

Saudi Arabia Hired US Contractors To Procure Weapons That Ended Up In Hands Of ISIS Terrorists In Yemenhttps://southfront.org/saudi-arabia-hired-us-contractors-to-procure-weapons-that-ended-up-in-hands-of-isis-terrorists-in-yemen/ – “US-procured weapons have ended up in the hands of ISIS terrorists in Yemen, an investigation by Dilyana Gaytandzhieva says. The investigation is based on internal documents from two Serbian companies, which she received from anonymous sources… The next part of the investigation includes scanned passports of US, Saudi and UAE arms dealers, as well as government officials exposing those behind the supplying of US-purchased weapons, produced in Serbia and delivered to ISIS fighters in Yemen.” – Comment: This highly detailed reporting by Gaytandshieva must be very inconvenient to the authors of the heinous Yemen war.

Nearly two decades after the events of September 11, 2001, former British Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, makes a compelling argument which challenges the western foreign policy orthodox which underpins the Global War on Terror. – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/09/11/eighteen-years-on-after-9-11-has-al-qaeda-won-the-war-on-terror/

REPORTS: Russia Has Blocked Three Israeli Strikes on Syria This Month – by Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/09/15/reports-russia-has-blocked-three-israeli-strikes-on-syria-this-month/ – “The source cited in the report claims a similar situation has happened twice – and that during August, Moscow stopped an air strike on a Syrian outpost in Qasioun, where a S-300 missile battery is placed… Moreover, it was claimed that another air strike was planned for a week later on a Syrian outpost in the Qunaitra area and a third one on a sensitive area in Latakia. This development is what pushed Netanyahu to have his quick visit in Russia to try and convince Putin to ignore Israel’s attacks in Syria. According to the Russian source, Putin let Netanyahu know that his country will not allow any damage to be done to the Syrian regime’s army, or any of the weapons being given to it, because giving such a permission would be seen as giving Israel leniency – something that contradicts Russia’s goal of assisting the Syrian regime.”

With the official confirmation of Hamza’s death, however, it still remains unclear when – and where – the US operation took place exactly.” (emphasis added)

Closer Look At Behavior Of Ukrainian Propagandists And Politicianshttps://southfront.org/closer-look-at-behavior-of-ukrainian-propagandists-and-politicians/ – “Since the very start of the 2014 Maidan coup in Ukraine, pro-Western media workers and politicians have demonstrated a surprising level of hypocrisy, inhumanity and propaganda hysteria. The war propaganda and blatant lies have become something common for Ukraine’s internal policy and the Kiev government’s actions on the international level. However, this is  intentionally ignored by Western diplomats and mainstream media outlets… The conversation below happened between a spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, and a journalist of Ukraine’s UNIAN, Roman Tsymbalyuk, on September 12.” – Comment: Marvelous transcript of this interview with Maria Zakharova, who essentially tears the Ukrainian media personality (propagandist), Roman Tsymbalyuk, to pieces on camera.

Evil Eric Schmidt and His Plan for Prison Planethttps://aim4truth.org/2019/08/31/evil-eric-schmidt-and-his-plan-for-prison-planet/ – “In this citizen intelligence report, we reveal the mechanisms that Eric Schmidt used to centralize the Chinese communist’s new program of Social Credit System, which is used to curtail the freedom of citizens who don’t maintain an acceptable cyber-score. This system of totalitarian control is now being used against corporations who fall prey to the Chinese “One Belt, One Road” trading deal that, in effect, is more like imperial piracy. Over one hundred million Chinese have had their freedoms restricted, jailed, or even put in “vocational retraining camps” where it is reported that over 1.5 million people have been murdered.”

Netanyahu: War in Gaza could break out ‘before the elections’https://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-war-in-gaza-could-break-out-before-the-elections/ – “In his comments, which came hours after he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu asserted, ‘An operation in Gaza could happen at any moment, including four days before the elections. The date of the elections does not factor [into a decision to go to war].’ ” – Comment: “break out”: wonderful euphemism.

INSIDE THE DRUG INDUSTRY’S PLAN TO DEFEAT THE DEA – Faced with pressure to curtail suspicious opioid shipments, an alliance fought back with every weapon at its disposal – by Scott Higham, Sari Horwitz, Steven Rich and Meryl Kornfield – https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/investigations/drug-industry-plan-to-defeat-dea/ – “The new information is emerging through the efforts of lawyers in the massive federal lawsuit against two dozen drug companies in Cleveland who have obtained depositions from high-ranking company officials, internal company emails and confidential memos. The documents were unsealed in July after a year-long legal fight by The Washington Post and the owner of the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia… In 2016, the drug companies convinced members of Congress and Obama administration officials to rein in the DEA and force the agency to treat them as “partners” in efforts to solve the crisis. The crowning achievement of the companies was a piece of legislation known as the “Marino bill,” named after its original sponsor, which curbed the DEA’s ability to immediately suspend the operations of drug companies that failed to follow the law.”

Russian Su-35s Intercept Israeli Warplanes Over Syria: Media reportshttps://www.defenseworld.net/news/25462/Russian_Su_35s_Intercept_Israeli_Warplanes_Over_Syria__Media_reports#.XXwdjX97m00 – “Russian Su-35 aircraft intercepted Israeli warplanes over southern Syria on night of September 10, a day after 18 persons were killed in a suspected Israeli attack on a Syrian army post hosting Iran-affiliated militia… The Russian aircraft took off from the Khmeimim air base and intercepted Israeli aircraft over southern Syria, Russian website, Avia.pro reported citing unnamed sources. A couple of other Russian news resources too reported this incident without attribution… However, with Russian warplanes in the sky, the Israeli aircraft withdrew without confrontation, another Russian website, Avia.ru writes.”

What Happened the Day a Giant, Dinosaur-Killing Asteroid Hit the Earth – Using rock cores from Chicxulub crater, geologists piece together a new timeline of the destruction that followed impact – by Riley Black – https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/dinosaur-killing-asteroid-impact-chicxulub-crater-timeline-destruction-180973075/#WxOD5oCeHLxyiKlB.99 – “One of the greatest scars on our planet is hidden beneath the Yucatán Peninsula and the Gulf of Mexico. The buried crater, over 90 miles in diameter, was created when a massive asteroid struck the planet 66 million years ago and brought a calamitous end to the reign of dinosaurs. Now, thanks to a new analysis of core samples taken from the crater’s inner ring of mountains, called a peak ring, geologists can create a detailed timeline of what happened on the day after impact.”

Netanyahu: War in Gaza to topple Hamas likely inevitable – by Michael Bachner –  https://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-war-in-gaza-to-topple-hamas-likely-inevitable/ – ” ‘There probably won’t be a choice but to launch an operation, a war with the terror forces in Gaza,’ the prime minister said in a radio interview with the Kan public broadcaster, kicking off a media blitz five days before the national elections. ‘There probably won’t be a choice but to topple the Hamas regime. Hamas doesn’t exert its sovereignty in the Strip and doesn’t prevent attacks.’ ”

Senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said Netanyahu was'”not only destroying the two-state solution, he is destroying all chances of peace.’.. She called it ‘worse than apartheid.’ ” – Comment: For an Exceptional People, confiscation of the property of the untermenschen is not theft.

A Recession Is Already Happening In Parts Of The U.S. – by Mac Slavo – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/09/a-recession-is-already-happening-in-parts-of-the-u-s.html – “While the mainstream media and the political establishment continue to claim China is paying for the tariffs, those actually stuck paying them are calling it what it is: propaganda. It’s just politics as usual.  ‘It’s just an outright lie, and he [Trump] knows it,’ says Greg Petras, president of Kuhn North America, which employs some 600 people at its farm-equipment factory in Wisconsin. For Kuhn, Trump’s trade war has produced a toxic mix of rising costs and falling revenues. ‘You’re slamming your fist on the steering wheel and saying “Why would you tell people this?” ‘… According to Bloomberg, hours are being cut and the workforce is being furloughed to make ends meet. About 250 Kuhn employees spent the Labor Day holiday caught in a two-week furlough, and they’re facing another in early October. A shrinking order book means Kuhn is cutting costs and slashing production as Petras and his managers peer out at a U.S. economy that looks far bleaker from the swing-state heartland than it does in either the White House or on Wall Street.”

RFK.

And that the fall of California into medical fascism also marks the beginning of a new, broad-based civil rights movement, including all sexes, races, walks of life, religions, and socioeconomic classes — as it concerns the primary, inviolable human right of bodily self-sovereignty and health freedom, and a parent’s right to make informed health choices for their children, which can have life and death consequences.”

Suicide Rates In Rural America Jump, Nearly Half A Million Dead – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-09/suicide-rates-rural-america-jump-nearly-half-million-dead – “Oren Miron, a researcher at the Clalit Research Institute in Israel, said the jump in suicide rates in rural counties is “alarming.”.. Miron wasn’t involved in the study but said the primary factor for high suicide rates was unemployment… Suicide “is a growing American tragedy,” Dr. Albert Wu, an internist and a professor of health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health… ‘It has become a leading cause of death in the U.S., and is a major public health problem.’.. In rural communities, ‘many of the most pernicious health and social problems intersect,’ Wu said.”

IDF Claims Iranian-backed Forces Launched Rockets At Israel From Syria – https://southfront.org/idf-claims-iranian-backed-forces-launched-rockets-at-israel-from-syria/ – “The IDF statement is most likely another attempt to justify the Israeli agressive policy towards Syria in the region.

Israeli Attack? Several Explosions Rocked Positions Of Iraqi Militias Near Syrian Borderhttps://southfront.org/israeli-attack-several-explosions-rocked-positions-of-iraqi-militias-near-syrian-border/ – “On September 8, several explosions rocked near the Syrian city of Al Bukamal, located on the border with Iraq, Al Arabiya reported. According to the report, the targeted area is where Iranian-affiliated Iraqi militias are located, and the explosions may have targeted them… It was also reported that several servicemembers were killed. Pro-Israeli sources argue that 18 Iranian-backed fighters were killed and a few dozens of others were wounded in the incident described as an alleged ‘Israeli attack’. However, these claims remain unconfirmed by any evidence.”

Erdogan says Turkey, US at odds over Syria safe zonehttps://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/09/08/605684/US-Turkey-Erdogan-Syria-safe-zone-disagreement – ” ‘We are negotiating with the US for the safe zone, but we see at every step that what we want and what they have in mind is not the same thing,’ Erdogan said. ‘It seems that our ally is looking for a safe zone for the terrorist organization, not for us. We reject such understanding.’.. ‘If we don’t actually begin establishing a safe zone in the east of Euphrates with our own soldiers by the end of September, we will have no other option left but to follow our path. This is not something to be done with three or five helicopter flights, five or ten rounds of ground patrols, and ostensible presence of a few hundreds of soldiers in the region,’ the Turkish president said.”

Another US great recession coming? – by Stephen Lendman – https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/09/02/605155/Another-US-great-recession-coming – “Millions of unemployed Americans are considered nonpersons, their status omitted from headlined monthly Labor Department figures… These are real people struggling to get by. Most working Americans hold low-wage, poor-or-no benefit temporary or part-time service jobs… Already living in poverty or bordering it, they’re one or a few missed paychecks away from possible homelessness, hunger and despair — the world’s richest nation uncaring about their dire straits… If real US inflation exceeds 5.5%, average wages for working Americans declined, a further drag on the economy, compounded by record high consumer debt exceeding $13 trillion… McKinsey Global Institute data show US ‘median wages have not risen at all since 2007,’ Rasmus reported… Adjusted for real inflation, they’ve fallen, exacerbating the widening US wealth gap, have and have not economic reality in the country… Whenever it arrives, economic recession will hit ordinary Americans hardest.”

The Trayvon Hoax That Divided America Is About to Be Exposed – by Jack Cashill – https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/09/the_trayvon_hoax_that_divided_america_is_about_to_be_exposed.html – “Having written a book on the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin — If I Had a Son– I have been following Gilbert’s progress with interest. In fact, I introduced Gilbert to George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. Those who have followed the case know that not since the Scottsboro boys has any ordinary citizen endured the kind of malicious and conspicuously false reporting Zimmerman has. My hope was that Gilbert would set the record straight… Gilbert has done that and more. In the course of his relentless research into the shooting and subsequent trial, I can say without risk of overstatement that he has unearthed a legal fraud the likes of which I know no parallel. Not only has Gilbert discovered it, but he has also proved it six ways from Sunday, including DNA and handwriting analysis.”

Netherlands Indirectly Admitted Own Complicity In MH17 Tragedyhttps://southfront.org/netherlands-indirectly-admitted-own-complicity-in-mh17-tragedy/ – “According to an independent technical expert Yuri Antipov, ‘the Dutch are deceiving everyone by’ wiping ‘the last seconds of the recording of this fundamental parameter.’.. ‘The Dutch say that recording on CVR and FDR stopped at 13 hours 20 minutes 3 seconds,’ the technical expert explains. ‘That is, both recorders stopped recording parameters at a time.’.. However, Antipov says that the FDR data published by the official MH17 investigation is different from what the investigators want to demonstrate to the world… ‘The recording of the pressure sensor inside the aircraft on the diagram stops at 13 hours 20 minutes and 1 second. That is, two seconds earlier,’ Antipov said adding that this is a signal of the fraud. So, the official investigation just removed data on the air pressure inside the aircraft 2 seconds before the incident… Under international law (as well as laws of a majority of the states), the concealment of facts related to the crime is a signal of complicity in the crime.  The Dutch government, which is allegedly a neutral side in the MH17 case, is de-facto impeding the objective investigation of the tragedy.”

Project SCoPEx: Bill Gates pursuing a plan to carry out planetary GENOCIDE under the guise of halting “climate change” – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-09-06-project-scopex-bill-gates-has-a-plan-to-carry-out-planetary-genocide.html – “The SCoPEx project seeks to replicate the effects of an apocalyptic volcano disaster such as the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, which ejected so much particulate matter into the atmosphere that it produced what was called, “the year without a summer.” Food crops failed across the planet, leading to mass starvation and disease. This is what Bill Gates and today’s mad scientists are working to replicate through artificial means. And yes, it’s all about unleashing mass starvation, genocide and depopulation on a global scale.”

These were the words spoken by North Carolina District Attorney Ashley Welch, when reporter Kate Martin, writing for the Carolina Public Press, asked her to respond last week (August 2019) to news that an internal memo revealed that state officials knew that Cherokee County Department of Social Services was illegally removing children from their homes, before a civil lawsuit was filed in 2018 and before a request was made for a State Bureau of Investigation probe into the matter… In 2018, Associated Press reporters Mitch Weiss and Holbrook Mohr published an investigative report showing that Cherokee County Department of Social Services removed many children from their homes illegally, perhaps ‘hundreds.’ ”

Denmark To Send Troops To Syria, Pentagon Welcomes This Movehttps://southfront.org/denmark-to-send-troops-to-syria-pentagon-welcomes-this-move/ – “In a surprise move, Denmark is set to deploy troops in northeastern Syria to support U.S.-led coalition operations in the war-torn country… The country’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced on September 6 that the Danish military will send a medical team, a combat battalion, a warship and four fighter aircraft with support personnel for operations in Syria… The Pentagon welcomed Frederiksen’s announcement, claiming that the Danish forces will be participating in anti-ISIS efforts… ‘The United States welcomes the announcement by the Danish Government to make a military deployment to Syria in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and to continue to share the burden and responsibilities of this important mission … Our Danish partners will work with the residual U.S. military force in northeast Syria to support stability and security,’ an official statement by the Pentagon reads… Several reports had revealed that Washington was pressuring NATO members to increase their contribution to the U.S.-led coalition.”

Brexit and the Prison House of Nations – by Israel Shamir – http://www.unz.com/ishamir/brexit-and-the-prison-house-of-nations/ – “The fight for Brexit is not a fight with or against Europe. Europeans are with BoJo against their own elites. The French dream of Frexit, and even Greeks would prefer Grexit to their present position of a country reduced by austerity to shambles. Whenever people were asked whether they want to remain in the EU, this undemocratic organisation wholly owned and managed by hostile elites, they usually answered by roaring No. The list is long. In 2005, the French voted Non to the EU Constitution, Nee said the Dutch; other governments got the message and shrewdly cancelled the referendums. Norway, Switzerland, Ireland, Greenland, Denmark, Greece voted No, but the hostile elites did not take no for an answer. Always they arranged this or that subterfuge, provided a different question for a new poll, or most often ruled that no referendum was necessary. In the case of Greece, the people voted No, but the ruling party said ‘never mind’ and answered Yes.”

The center was supposedly closed in late 2017.”

Inverted Systems – Lisa Renee’s May 2017 Newsletter, read by her – This is a good higher dimensional overview of the basic layout of the “Matrix” system now operating on Earth.

Link to full text of above Newsletter: https://energeticsynthesis.com/index.php/resource-tools/news-shift-timelines/3145-inverted-systems – “It is important to be able to identify the profiles of psychopathic and criminal behavior, because psychopaths are specifically being groomed in humanity in order to act as the managerial gatekeeper in the industries that enforce the inverted systems and enforce the reversals to stay in place. Thus, the workplace psychopaths are doing their job of serving the anti-human structures that increase the overall suffering in the world.”

There’s a lot of chatter about the statements from Mark Carney at the Jackson Hole conference among Alternative Info researchers on the webIs the Fed Preparing to Topple US Dollar? – by F. William Engdahl – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/52204.htm – “The about-to-retire head of the very special Bank of England, Mark Carney, delivered a remarkable speech at the recent annual meeting of central bankers and finance elites at Jackson Hole Wyoming on August 23. The 23-page address to fellow central bankers and financial insiders is clearly a major signal of where the Powers That Be who run world central banks plan to take the world… The Bank of England Governor proposes in effect that the IMF, with its multi-currency Special Drawing Rights (SDR), a basket of five currencies—dollar, Pound, Yen, Euro and now Renminbi—should play the central role creating a new monetary system: ‘The IMF should play a central role in informing both domestic and cross border policies. … Pooling resources at the IMF, and thereby distributing the costs across all 189 member countries…’ For that to work he proposes raising the IMF SDR funds triple to $3 trillions as the core of a new monetary system… Then Carney proposes that the IMF oversee creation of a new payments infrastructure based on an international “stablecoin.” Referring to the private Libra, he clearly states a “new Synthetic Hegemonic Currency (SHC) would be best provided by the public sector, perhaps through a network of central bank digital currencies.” Note that Carney, a former Goldman Sachs banker, is mentioned as a leading candidate to replace Christine Lagarde as IMF head. Is his speech open admission of what is being planned by the world’s leading central bankers as the next step to a world currency and global economic control? Let’s look further.”

Chaos and Old Night: Fracking’s Hell Fires Still Burn Bright in Colorado – by Phil Doe – https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/09/03/chaos-and-old-night-frackings-hell-fires-still-burn-bright-in-colorado/ – “The new law, known as SB 181, made the protection of public health, safety, and the environment a condition that had to be met before any new oil and gas wells could be drilled or other infrastructure approved… When the smoke cleared and the jubilant Democratic legislators had gone home to be crowned with laurel, the new governor, Jared Polis, a centrist Democrat, took over administration of the new law… Lo and behold, it was only a matter of days thereafter that the future started to look a lot like the past, a past that was and is a living hell for those in the fracking fields.”

Eastern Ukraine Conflict Zone Became Hotter In Late August, Early Septemberhttps://southfront.org/eastern-ukraine-conflict-zone-became-hotter-in-late-august-early-september/ – “On July 22, the sides in the conflict in eastern Ukraine – the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) and forces the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) reached a “harvest” ceasefire agreement… Despite this, the situation in the period from July 22 to August 8 was tense with little signs of the establishment of a real ceasefire in the area... In the following period, from August 9  to September 1, the military situation remained same with the UAF openly violating the ceasefire almost on a dailiy basis and DPR-LPR forces responding to these violations.”

Pentagon’s DARPA Joins ‘Fight Against Fake News And Disinformation’https://southfront.org/pentagons-darpa-joins-fight-against-fake-news-and-disinformation/ – ” This is where it gets interesting. Initially, the description of the program suggests that this will curate and look for fake news and disinformation. This is where it is actually admitted that media content will also be created – ‘TA3 will design, organize, plan, and conduct the SemaFor evaluations and results analysis. While the evaluations will be conducted at the TA2 performer’s location, they will be under the control and supervision of the TA3 performer. TA3 deliverables include program metrics, evaluation protocols, and a library of multi-modal media assets for development and test purposes. Media may be collected or created.’.. Most likely to the discontent of many critics of US President Donald Trump, the Republicans and the current state of elections in the US, the program will be ready in 4 years… ‘This timeline is too slow and I wonder if it is a bit of PR,’ Syracuse University assistant professor of communications Jennifer Grygiel said. ‘Educating the public on media literacy, along with legislation, is what is important. But elected officials lack motivation themselves for change, and there is a conflict of interest as they are using these very platforms to get elected.’.. The current trend in forming the narrative is becoming and more evident, with constant claims of “educating the public in media literacy” and other dubious statements of the sort.”

The attack looks set to be the deadliest this year by the Saudi-led coalition.” – Comment: Good job, Saudis! MBS must be proud… “We estimate over 100 people were killed,” International Red Cross head in Yemen, Franz Rauchenstein, told AFP. Rauchenstein said that rescue teams are combing the rubble for survivors, but their chances of success “are very low.”

Teen Girl Loses Memory of 3 Months of her Life and 1/3 of Her Body Weight after HPV Vaccination – Barely Escapes Medical Kidnappinghttps://healthimpactnews.com/2019/teen-girl-loses-memory-of-3-months-of-her-life-and-1-3-of-her-body-weight-after-hpv-vaccination-barely-escapes-medical-kidnapping/ – “From an early age, I knew the way I wanted my life to go – I would finish school, move onto sixth form and then go to university. It never occurred to me that this would not happen, or not be possible… I had my first injection of the HPV vaccine in October 2010, the second in November, and the third dose in May 2011. When the consent form came though we questioned whether it was safe for me after the reaction I had to the MMR, but we were assured it was a safe vaccine… Looking back, I had symptoms of not being well that winter, but this was put down to flu, so I kept pushing myself.”

Will Bibi’s War Become America’s War? – by Patrick J. Buchanan – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/08/29/will-bibis-war-become-americas-war/ – “Netanyahu’s widening of Israel’s war with Iran and its proxies into Lebanon and Iraq — and perhaps beyond — and his acknowledgement of that wider war raise questions for both of us… Israel today has on and near her borders hostile populations in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq. Tens of millions of Muslims see her as an enemy to be expelled from the region… While there is a cold peace with Egypt and Jordan, the Saudis and Gulf Arabs are temporary allies as long as the foe is Iran… Is this pervasive enmity sustainable?”

SouthFront Gets Award For Uncompromised Integrity In Journalismhttps://southfront.org/southfront-gets-award-for-uncompromised-integrity-in-journalism/ – “In August 2019, SouthFront was honored and profoundly moved to be considered worthy of the Serena Shim Award for Uncompromised Integrity in Journalism. We are proud to be among other respected and dedicated media organizations, journalists and investigators like Julian Assange, Vanessa Beeley, Dilyana Gaytandzhieva and others… The award was launched to honor Serena Shim that covered crucial events in the Middle East and other regions… We are set to continue our struggle asserting independent journalism, and providing an independent point of view on key military and political developments around the world. The Serena Shim award will help SouthFront to continue its work.”

The Saker interviews Max van der Werff about the MH-17 conspiracyhttp://thesaker.is/the-saker-interviews-max-van-der-werff-about-the-mh-17-conspiracy/ – “MH17 is… …a typical false flag operation which pursued two goals: first, of course, to justify a military aggression and, second, to force everybody to chose one of two options: first, either pretend to believe the official narrative or, second, be vilified and discredited. From this perspective, the MH17 false flag has been a tremendous success, mostly due to the extremely successful lobotomy inflicted by the legacy Ziomedia on the western public opinion (I would argue that the Skripal fairy tale is even more self-evidently ridiculous than the MH17 fairy tale, and yet that was also swallowed hook line and sinker by most western “experts”). But then, we live in a post-9/11 world, in which neither facts nor logic matter much anymore, except for a rather small amount of people, including Max van der Werff who has proven to be one of the most tenacious and courageous investigative journalists. I am most grateful for his time and answers!”

‘Watch out’: In tacit threat, IDF reveals details of Iran-Hezbollah missile plot – Israel names Iranian, Lebanese officers working secretively for years to give Shiite terror group advanced munitions; wants Lebanon, world to act to halt the program – by Judah Ari Gross –  https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-tacit-threat-idf-reveals-details-of-iran-hezbollah-precision-missile-project/ – “The Israeli military said it was taking the highly irregular step of releasing information about active members of a terrorist plot in order to push the Lebanese government and international community to take action to halt the project.  Conricus said the IDF would likely reveal additional intelligence about the plot within the coming hours and days.”

Recent Attacks On Iraqi PMU Were Launched From US-occupied Part Of Syria – Reporthttps://southfront.org/recent-attacks-on-iraqi-pmu-were-launched-from-sdf-held-syria-report/ – “Israel launched the last five attacks on the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) from bases in the US-occupied areas in northwestern Syria, an Iraqi intelligence source told the Middle East Eye on August 27… The intelligence source added that Israeli drones were used in the attacks, claiming that Saudi Arabia is financing such operations… ‘The drone attacks were launched from SDF [US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces] areas with the financing and backing of the Saudis,’ the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Middle East Eye.” – Comment: This would imply that the U.S. military was directly involved.

US Allegedly Carried Out Successful Cyber Attack On Iran’s IRGC Two Months Ago: NYThttps://southfront.org/us-carried-out-successful-cyber-attack-on-irans-irgc-two-months-ago-nyt/ – “An alleged secret US cyber-attack against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) took place in June 2019, the NYT reported, citing unnamed senior US officials… Of course, cyber operations also have their weakness, most of them can only be used once, since the target can rectify the backdoor used to access the system and cause damage… ‘Iran is a sophisticated actor. They will look at what happened,’ said Mark Quantock, a retired major general, who served as intelligence chief at US CENTCOM… ‘Russia, China, Iran and even North Korea would all be able to see how they were penetrated.’.. It also “shuts off the tap” on intelligence that US operatives are allegedly collecting, by way of the mentioned backdoor.”

Michael Snyder is, what else? Worried Preparing For A Financial Apocalypse: Insiders Are Selling “$600 Million Of Stock Per Day In August” – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/preparing-for-a-financial-apocalypse-insiders-are-selling-600-million-of-stock-per-day-in-august.html – ”  Corporate insiders have sold an average of $600 million of stock per day in August, according to TrimTabs Investment Research, which tracks stock market liquidity… August is on track to be the fifth month of the year in which insider selling tops $10 billion. The only other times that has happened was 2006 and 2007, the period before the last bear market in stocks, TrimTabs said… …it is also very unlikely that President Trump will cave in and give the Chinese what they want.  So ultimately we will see episodes of hope on Wall Street on the days when it looks like the two sides may start talking again, but there won’t be a deal any time soon… At this moment, corporate insiders are dumping stocks as if “the everything bubble” was about to burst in a major way.  And if those corporate insiders are correct, millions upon millions of other Americans will be completely and utterly unprepared for what is about to happen.”

From the Fear-Porn Desk – Michael Snyder Two-fer: An Indicator With A 100% Perfect Track Record Of Predicting Recessions Says That Another One Is Coming – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/an-indicator-with-a-100-perfect-track-record-of-predicting-recessions-says-that-another-one-is-coming.html – “You can believe that we will somehow beat the odds this time if you want, but history is completely against you. One of the biggest reasons why there is so much anxiety on Wall Street right now is because of how the yield curve is behaving.  We have seen yield curve inversions before each of the last seven U.S. recessions, and now it has happened again.  Perhaps this helps to explain why insiders are dumping stocks right now as if there will be no tomorrow.  If you were looking for a giant waving red flag to tell you that it is time to run for the exits, it doesn’t get much better than this.  This week, we watched the yield curve do something that it hasn’t done in 12 years… ‘The spread between the 10-year Treasury yield and the 2-year rate fell to negative 5 basis points, its lowest level since 2007. This is called a yield curve inversion. Experts fear it because in the past it has preceded recessionary periods. The 3-month Treasury bill rate also traded higher than the 30-year bond yield.’.. ‘The primary thing is yields are going down and going down with some acceleration,’said Art Cashin, the director of floor operations at UBS.” (emphases added)

The Next Economic Crisis and the Looming Post-Multipolar System (w/video 10 min) – https://southfront.org/next-economic-crisis-and-looming-post-multipolar-system/

G7 Format Is Deadhttps://southfront.org/g7-format-is-dead/– “No surprise that the return of Russia in fact became one of the key topics during the G7 summit. The Guardian even reproted that there was a kind of scandal on this topic with the US leader openly arguing that Russia should be returned… The report was followed by an official statement by Trump that having Russia in the group “is better than having them outside” the G7. So, The Guardian’s report part regarding Trump’s stance on the topic was true. At the same time, the newspaper claimed that all others were against. Let’s take a closer look:.. In fact, the UK and Canada were the only powers really standing against the return of Russia. Since the start of Trump’s first term, the  UK has been the key power representing interests of the Euro-Atlantic establishment. So, there is no surprise in this. At the same time, Canada is not a really independent state that can provide a really independent foreign policy. It’s an open secret that the UK still appoints a Governor General of Canada that has a wide range of options to impact the Canadian policy – for example, to dissolve the Parliament.”

HARPA: Trump Seeking New Agency to Use A.I. to Screen Mental Health for Gun Ownership? – by Nicholas West –  https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/harpa-trump-seeking-new-agency-to-use-a-i-to-screen-mental-health-for-gun-ownership.html – “HARPA — the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency — has been in the works as a proposal since 2017 by the Trump Administration according to the Washington Post, but is reportedly gaining steam again as the administration grapples with solutions for mass shootings and calls for gun control. If this new report is to be believed, the Trump admin is putting its faith in artificial intelligence as a possible way to screen people for mental health (through data collected by smart devices) in order to determine violent tendencies and perhaps thwart gun purchases for those deemed to be a potential mass shooter… So far, it’s been stated that any data collected will come from volunteers, but we know how that story tends to work out.” – With creepy propaganda video on the wonder of HARPA, 30 min.

In Unprecedented, Shocking Proposal, BOE’s Mark Carney Urges Replacing Dollar With Libra-Like Reserve Currency – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-23/unprecedented-shocking-proposal-boes-mark-carney-urges-replacing-dollar-libra – “After Jerome Powell’s neutral-to-slightly-dovish-but-mostly-boring speech on Friday morning, investors could be forgiven for suspecting that this year’s Fed-sponsored gathering in Jackson Hole might be disappointingly dull (especially with all that’s going on in Trump’s twitter feed, the escalating trade war and escalating geopolitical unrest)… Then along came former Goldman banker and current (outgoing) BOE governor, Mark Carney, who in his lunchtime address laid out a shocking, radical proposal – perhaps the most stunning thing to ever be unveiled at Jackson Hole – urging to replace the US Dollar with a “Libra-like” reserve currency in a dramatic revamp of the global monetary, financial and economic order.” – Comment: So the Shape-of-Things-to-Come following the imminent collapse of equities and bonds (and various associated corporate structures) is “coming into view,” as G.H.W. Bush so poignantly put it.

Surveillance Video Outside Epstein’s Cell Deemed “Unusable” – by Tyler Durden – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/surveillance-video-outside-epsteins-cell-deemed-unusable.html – “Now, the  Washington Post reports that at least one of the cameras in the hallway outside Epstein’s cell had footage that is “unusable,” despite “other, clearer footage” which was captured in the area… In short, it looks like we may never know why sources heard shouting and shrieking” from Epstein’s jail cell the morning he died: ‘It was not immediately clear why some video footage outside Epstein’s cell is too flawed for investigators to use or what is visible in the usable footage. The incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which are attempting to determine what happened and how to assess whether any policies were violated or crimes committed… The footage is considered critical to those inquiries, and the revelation of an unusable recording is yet another of the apparent failures inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center…”

The Imperial Presidency of Donald Trump: A Threat to American Democracy and an Agent of Chaos in the World? – By Prof. Rodrigue Tremblay – https://www.globalresearch.ca/imperial-presidency-donald-trump/5574923 – “President Donald Trump has shown a propensity to govern by decree with a minimum input from government departments and from the elected Congress… A dangerous and potentially disastrous approach to government, in a democracy, occurs when a leader adopts the practice of governing by decree, without constitutional constraints, thus forcing the hands of responsible departments, of the elected Congress and submitting the entire U.S. bureaucracy to his will by governing as an autocrat. If it were to continue on that road, the Trump administration could turn out to be more like a would-be imperial presidency than a responsible democratic government.”

Israel strikes Palestinian position in Lebanon after punishing Hamas for Gaza rocket fire – reportshttps://www.rt.com/news/467282-israel-lebanon-gaza-strikes/ – “Israeli air strikes targeted the headquarters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in Lebanon’s Bekaa region, local media report. Earlier the IDF struck several targets in Gaza, in retaliation to rocket fire… ‘Three Israeli air strikes targeted the Lebanese-Syria border east of Zahle… explosions were heard in several parts of the Bekaa valley,’ An-Nahar news channel said as unverified footage of the strike apparently targeting the PFLP office spread across social media. The strikes seem to be limited as the PFLP said initial reports indicate no casualties.” – Comment: OK, people, it’s beginning to look like Israel, under the control of Bibi Netanyahu, in advance of the upcoming elections, is going into full War Mode. The chances for this to expand into a major regional “conflict” are looming large.

Israeli warplanes carry out mock bombing raids over Lebanon’s Sidon – reportshttps://www.rt.com/news/467245-israel-mock-bombing-raids-lebanon/ – “Lebanon’s National News Agency is reporting that Israeli jets flew at a low altitude over the country’s third largest city, which is approximately 40km south of the capital Beirut.”

An Unnatural Epidemic: Kidney Disease Caused by Glyphosatehttp://www.gmosrevealed.com/an-unnatural-epidemic-kidney-disease-caused-by-glyphosate/ – “How does glyphosate cause kidney disease, and why is it so prevalent in certain areas? The answer may be found in glyphosate’s mineral chelation properties. In areas where there is extremely hard water or naturally occurring arsenic or cadmium, glyphosate bonds with these toxic metals and forms a compound that makes its way into food and drinking water. Glyphosate and arsenic have been found in the urine of agricultural workers with CKDu, further supporting this theory… In response to these findings, Sri Lanka joined El Salvador, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil and the growing number of other countries that have banned the use of glyphosate due to health concerns. In India, restrictions have been put in place and additional bans are being debated.”

Homesteading Army Vet, Elderly Couple Face Eviction for Being Unable to Pay Predatory Code Enforcers – by Jack Burns – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/homesteading-army-vet-elderly-couple-face-eviction-for-being-unable-to-pay-predatory-code-enforcers.html – “The Army intelligence veteran soon realized he was not alone in being what seemed like a target for county officials to go after code violators. A retired couple in their 80s is currently facing foreclosure after being fined $9,300 in code violations. Those violations now have gone to debt collectors. They say they don’t have the money to pay the fines and are being forced to sell their homestead over an incomplete home renovation (which originally had been permitted), and a few outbuildings on their land. The couple says the code enforcers violated the law by coming onto their property to take pictures… Lind Storebo bought her property in 2016 and paid cash for it only to find out she, too, would be a target of intimidation and harassment by Yavapai County code enforcers. Like Killeen, Storebo was also asked to attend a hearing with the county. She said Yavapai County official David Williams was screaming at her, hurling profanity, spitting in her face as he did, and threatened to have her arrested if she didn’t sign the affidavit for allegedly violating county codes when she put a camper on her land. Storebo was afraid of going to jail, and instead of fighting, simply vacated the land by removing the buildings and the camper. She now has land she paid cash for and cannot use.”

Rising Awareness About 5G as WSJ Reports Cities’ Concerns Over Aesthetics, Health and FCC “Bullying” – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/rising-awareness-as-wsj-reports-cities-objections-to-5g-over-aesthetics-health-concerns-and-fcc-bullying.html – “There are reports about 5G is already operating in some communities and people and their pets becoming sick from exposure (see 1, 2, 3).  But WSJ instead blames social media and “conspiracy theorists” as the biggest reason people are opposed to small cell towers being installed in front of homes, schools, and pretty much everywhere else… The American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have warned that children are more susceptible to harm from exposure to ALL SOURCES of cell phone and WiFi radiation than adults.  This includes 5G.  Adding 5G to the mix of the current sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka Electrosmog) we’re already being exposed to isn’t good for them or anyone else… So why has the WSJ changed its tone since 2014 with all of this new evidence available? Who knows — maybe like The New York Times, they’re vying for a “joint venture” for 5G journalism lab.”

Where’s Ghislaine Maxwell? – by Kurt Nimmo – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/wheres-ghislaine-maxwell.html – “What is the point of this photo, which was at first assumed to be legitimate? The answer is quite simple: Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s collaborator in serial rape of 14-year-old girls, is laughing at the so-called justice system… Here’s Maxwell’s subtext—she is protected, she will never see the inside of a prison cell for making an unknown number of children sex slaves.

The logical observer may question whether these endless multi-billion dollar campaigns have had any tangible effect at all, except in serving as a stalking horse for mass-mediated interferences in the affairs of other nations… Whether it is about immigration, education or the whitewashing of terrorists, they are there, ready with their scripted messages. The latest sensation happens to be Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg who is trying save humanity from an environmental apocalypse by playing truant from school.  Manufactured doyens, however, conveniently overlook real progress in the activist areas they were groomed for, revealing a strong pattern of bias in the process… On Friday Aug 9 2019, more than a million Indians planted 220 million trees in a single day, with each tree representing a resident of the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP).  According to state government official Awanish K. Awasthi: “The pits are geo-tagged and the saplings carry a QR code. So we can record how many saplings are planted and where… New Delhi’s indigenous efforts since 2015 were therefore deemed unsatisfactory by Extinction Rebellion superstar Thunberg.”

Jeff Bezos’s Politics – by Eric Zuesse – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/08/24/jeff-bezoss-politics/ – “Some of America’s billionaires don’t care about international conquest as much as he does, but all of them at least accept neoconservatism; none of them, for example, establishes and donates large sums to, anti-imperialistic organizations; none of America’s billionaires is determined to end the reign of neoconservatism, nor even to help the fight to end it, or at least to end its grip over the US Government. None. Not even a single one of them does. But many of them establish, and donate large sums to, neoconservative organizations, or run neoconservative organs such as Bezos’s Washington Post, which is simultaneously a neoconservative and a neoliberal organ; i.e., it’s a Democratic Party type of neoconservative organ. That’s the way billionaires are, at least in the United States. All of them are imperialists. They sponsor it; they promote it and hire people who do, and demote or get rid of people who don’t. Expanding an empire is extremely profitable for its aristocrats, and always has been, even before the Roman Empire.”

The Irony: US-Appointed ‘Democratic President’ of Venezuela Threatens to Boycott Early Elections – by Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/08/24/the-irony-us-appointed-democratic-president-of-venezuela-threatens-to-boycott-early-elections/ – “In an interview on Friday, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido announced that he and the rest of the opposition would refuse to participate in any early legislative elections called by the Maduro government… Maduro allies have suggested they’d like to hold an election for the National Assembly in January or earlier. The parliament’s term is officially set to end in December of 2020, and elections would normally be held a few months before that… Guaido is the majority leader in the National Assembly, and has used that position to declare himself the rightful ruler of Venezuela. Guaido says the assembly will remain in place until Maduro is removed from power, arguing no free elections are possible until then.”

From the It-Just-Gets-Better Desk: An astronaut may have committed the first space crime while aboard the International Space Station – by Ellen Cranley – https://www.businessinsider.com/nasa-divorce-space-crime-investigation-identity-2019-8 – “NASA is reportedly probing the case of an astronaut who was accused of accessing her estranged wife’s bank account while on a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station… Veteran astronaut and US Army lieutenant colonel Anne McClain was accused of improperly gaining access to Summer Worden’s bank account on NASA computers while she was in space, according to The New York Times… Worden, a former Air Force intelligence officer, became suspicious when McClain had mentioned specific purchases while fighting with her estranged spouse, the Times reported. Upon her request, her bank reportedly confirmed that her account had been accessed with credentials entered on a computer network registered to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.”

The Real Reasons Why The Media Is Suddenly Admitting To The Recession Threat – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/the-real-reasons-why-the-media-is-suddenly-admitting-to-the-recession-threat.html – “The media should have been reporting on economic crisis dangers for the past 2-3 years.  But, they didn’t give these problems much credence until recently.  So, what changed?.. I can only theorize on why the media and the banking elites choose the timing they do to admit to the public what is about to happen. First, it is clear from their efforts to stifle free discussion that they do not want to let the populace know too far ahead of time that a crash is coming. According to the evidence, which I have outlined in-depth in previous articles, central banks and international banks sometimes engineer crash events in order to consolidate wealth and centralize their political power even further. Is it a conspiracy? Yes, it is, and it’s a provable one… The pace of the narrative is quickening, and I would suggest that a collapse of the bubble will move rather quickly, perhaps in the next four to six months. If it does, then it is likely that Trump is not slated for a second term as president in 2020. Trump’s highly divisive support for “Red Flag” gun laws, a move that will lose him considerable support among pro-gun conservatives, also indicates to me that it is likely he is not meant to be president in 2020.”

A fight over facial recognition is dividing Detroit — with high stakes for police and privacy – Detroit’s police chief says facial recognition is making the city safer. Some residents fear it could create a surveillance state – https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fight-over-facial-recognition-dividing-detroit-high-stakes-police-privacy-n1045046 – “Detroit police officials say they’re only using facial recognition technology to identify suspects in violent crimes — not to spy on ordinary citizens. But, in a city that is about 80 percent black, with a sizable population of Middle Eastern, Asian and Latin American immigrants, critics have blasted the police for using technology that has been shown to be more likely to misidentify people with dark skin, without fully explaining it to the public… ‘What happens when this software misidentifies one single person that doesn’t have the resources for a good legal defense?’ asked Willie Burton, an elected member of Detroit’s Board of Police Commissioners, a civilian body that oversees the police department. ‘Detroit is the poorest, blackest city in America. It should be the last city where we start implementing facial recognition.’ ”

Trump Wants to Buy Greenland, But It’s Not for Sale – by Wayne Madsen – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/08/19/trump-wants-buy-greenland-but-its-not-for-sale/ – “Pernille Skipper of the Red-Green Alliance said, ‘It says a lot about Trump that he actually thinks you can buy a whole country and a whole people. Greenland is the Greenlanders, and this is not the 19th century. Not for sale.’ Christian Juhl of the Red-Green Alliance said, ‘Trump can instead offer to pay rent for the Thule base, which until now has been made available to the US for free.’ Soren Espersen, foreign affairs spokesman for the nationalist Danish People’s Party told Danish Radio, ‘If he is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof, that he has gone mad. The thought of Denmark selling 50,000 citizens to the United States is completely ridiculous.’.. Greenlandic political leaders were just as critical about Trump’s scheme. Greenland Foreign Minister Ane Lone Bagger stated that, ‘We’re open for business, but we’re not for sale.’ Danish parliament member Aaja Chemnitz Larsen of the socialist pro-independence Inuit Ataqatigiit party of Greenland, said, ‘I am sure a majority in Greenland believes it is better to have a relation to Denmark than the United States, in the long term.’ Her Siumut counterpart, Aki-Matilda Høegh-Dam, said, ‘Denmark doesn’t own Greenland in any way, and you can’t sell something you do not own.’ ”

U.S. Officials Confirm Israel Was Behind Attacks On PMU Bases In Iraq – https://southfront.org/u-s-officials-confirm-israel-was-behind-attacks-on-pmu-bases-in-iraq/ – “A senior Middle Eastern intelligence official also confirmed that the airstrikes on the PMU, including the July 19 attack, were carried out by Israel. The source said that the July 19 airstrike destroyed a shipment of precision-guided missiles which were on their way to Syria, claiming that the airstrike was carried out from “within Iraq.”.. ‘Israel is pushing the limits with the strikes in Iraq … The airstrikes could get the United States military removed from Iraq,’ the New York Times quoted a senior U.S. official as saying… The PMU had held the U.S. and Israel responsible for the attacks on bases, claiming that Israeli drones were deployed inside Iraq with help from the U.S…The PMU vowed to respond to any future attack on its bases with the weapons it already has and “other advanced weapons.” This means that another strike by Israel could indeed put the U.S. military presence in Iraq on the line.”

Cities Unveil Unethical Homeless Reporting, While LA Pushes Anti-Homeless Law – by Aaron Kesel –  https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/cities-unveil-unethical-homeless-reporting-while-la-pushes-anti-homeless-law.html – Another problem is the laws being pushed in cities like Los Angeles that punish homelessness by barring the homeless from sleeping on public spaces. Los Angeles City Council’s homelessness and poverty committee has noticed the trend of criminalizing homelessness, and as result are working to change the law in order to align L.A.’s municipal code with a 2018 federal court ruling that limits how cities can enforce anti-camping and anti-loitering laws. In that case, Martin V. Boise, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a Boise law that outlawed sleeping in any public space… But the proposed changes made by the Los Angeles City Council’s homelessness and poverty committee aren’t designed to help those who need it and include outrageous bans on sitting, sleeping or lying in a number of designated public places. Which critics like Peggy Lee Kennedy, an advocate for the homeless from Venice argue are “inhumane,” as LAist reported.

The Koch-Soros Alliance to Censor the Internet – by Allum Bokhari – https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/08/20/bokhari-the-koch-soros-alliance-to-censor-the-internet/ – “Other groups involved in the project include a host of Soros-funded organizations, including “Hope not Hate,” the British equivalent of the far-left SPLC, and the pro-immigration National Immigration Forum... The former group, Hope not Hate, has a reputation for far-left extremism. Liberal anti-extremism campaigner Maajid Nawaz accused them of “book burning” after it announced a campaign to get allegedly “racist” books banned by major retailers. It was also forced to retract a smear against a Jewish pro-Israel activist last year… The National Immigration Forum, which initially aimed to persuade evangelicals and conservatives to support amnesty for illegal aliens, was exposed for its ties to George Soros by Breitbart News in 2013… The Charles Koch Institute, once seen as a conservative nemesis of the left, has now aligned itself with this group of left-wing, pro-censorship, anti-Trump agitators. When it comes to censoring the Internet, both the progressive and “conservative” establishment appear to be converging on a common position… The Charles Koch Institute now appears committed to advancing Internet censorship — or “content moderation,” as they might call it. Sarah Ruger, the Institute’s director of “free expression initiatives” has praised Airbnb for canceling the reservations of far-right activists, and has called for ‘online hate” to be treated like a “virus.‘.. As always, there’s an elephant in the room — what counts as ‘online hate?’ ”

Syrian Army Liberated Khan Shaykhun, Encircled Militants In Northern Hamahttps://southfront.org/syrian-army-liberated-khan-shaykhun-encircled-militants-in-northern-hama/ – “Late on August 21, government forces liberated the town of Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib.

Waah.

But reportedly, the Turkish fighter jets were forced to leave Syrian airspace after only 30-40 kilometers, which indicates that they either were warned in advance, or just simply saw the Russian aircraft on their radars… Experts do not exclude that Turkey will take all measures in the near future to strike at the positions of the Syrian military near Khan Shaykhun, since otherwise an observation post of the Turkish military, and terrorist groups allied with Turkey-backed militants will be encircled.”

AOC-Aligned Climate Group Demands Media Silence ‘Climate Deniers’ – by Tyler O’Neil – https://pjmedia.com/trending/aoc-aligned-climate-group-demands-media-silence-climate-deniers/ – ” ‘Some media outlets are sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective,’ Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization, said in a news release Saturday… ‘This idea of equating climate deniers with scientific experts is a dangerous practice which frames the threat to our planet, our existence as an ongoing debate,” Klein Salamon added. ‘I don’t think sacrificing the future of our planet in exchange for a look of ‘objectivity’ is an even exchange. It’s one the coming generation will judge us on, if we don’t move with the urgency necessary to fight back against global warming and win.’ ” – Comment: People, in general, apparently cannot see the logical conclusions of this line of thinking…

Government Troops Are Storming Khan Shaykhun After Cutting Off M5 Highway North Of It (Maps)https://southfront.org/government-troops-are-storming-khan-shaykhun-after-cutting-off-m5-highway-north-of-it-maps/ – “Late on August 19, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Tiger Forces and other pro-government factions started storming the town of Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib… Earlier on the same day, government troops seized several important hills north of Khan Shaykhun and cut off the M5 highway, which Turkish forces attempted to use to enter the town… According to some pro-government sources, members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other radical groups have started withdrawing from Khan Shaykhun. Reports are also circulating that militants are planning to withdraw from the entire northern Hama area. Nonetheless, these reports still have to be confirmed… The situation is developing.” – Note: according to comments under this article, the SAA have already taken the town and are performing sweeps & mop-up operations, and preparing for possible counter-attacks. According to local Syrians who have been liberated. most of the terrorists left in the last 2 weeks, leaving only a skeleton crew to maintain checkpoints. The defenders have taken major losses and are in disarray. Speculation is that the Syrians will throw all available reserves into cutting off escape by any terrorists remaining in the Northern Hama/Southern Idlib pocket, and may exploit the collapsing defences to advance rapidly into Idlib.

America’s “Hybrid War” against China has Entered a New Phase – China and the Zombies of the Past – by Christopher Black – https://www.globalresearch.ca/americas-hybrid-war-against-china-has-entered-a-new-phase/5686429 – “The hybrid war, being conducted against China by the United States and its gaggle of puppet states from the UK to Canada to Australia, has entered a new phase.” – I’d like to reiterate that the articles I link to do not represent my opinions about anything, and are not intended to be believed by anyone. They’re presented as, IMO, worthy of your consideration, and as including good information and/or analysis.

Doublespeak, Mainstream Propaganda And ‘Russian Threat’ –  https://southfront.org/doublespeak-mainstream-propaganda-and-russian-threat/ – “An interesting example of this situation was shown in a recent article, “Britain’s parallel army of cyberwarriors”, by The Sunday Times. The article quotes General Sir Nick Carter that ‘is pioneering” the creation of “a parallel career structure for part-time cyberwarriors’… He is taking inspiration from across the Atlantic on how to incentivise digital workers on high salaries to enlist. An American scheme that has created a new taxonomy of ranks for certain officers recruited from civilian life for their highly specialised skills, rather than having to rise up through the ranks, could be mirrored in Britain.At the same time, General Carter somehow forgot to mention that the US and the UK have been using various soft power and paramilitary tools to promote their interests and push the New World Order agenda for decades. The concept of “soft power” has been developed in the UK and the US for a long time… The key issue with the dominating mainstream narrative complaining about ‘Russian propaganda’ and fueling fears of ‘Russian threat’ is that it is a sign of disrespect to the British and US nations. The mainstream propaganda argues that people cannot analyze facts and make own conclusions. Instead, it sees people as consumerist sheeple. There is no secret in this. The New World Order is based the four pillars: neoliberalism (in politics), postmodernism (in culture), transhumanism (in philosophy) and neo-oligarchic techno-dystopia (in economy).”

Oregon Mother Jailed for Recommending Non-Chemo Cancer Therapies for Daughter – by Allie Parker – https://healthimpactnews.com/2019/oregon-mother-jailed-for-recommending-non-chemo-cancer-therapies-for-daughter/ – “It’s apparent this mother was expected to sit idly by as she watched her daughter agonize for 2 years with no results… As reported by KGW8, Christina Dixon said, ‘The best way I can describe it is like my kid was on death row. Every single time–you literally feel your kid’s life getting taken away.’.. According to Christina, her daughter had enough and wanted to go home stating, ‘I couldn’t do it anymore and my daughter wanted to go home. She had enough too. She begged me to take her home before they did more chemo.’.. Christina started using alternative treatments which include vitamins, herbs and pure CBD oil to treat her daughter’s cancer once she was release from OHSU in June of 2018… KGW8 did not have access to the daughter’s medical records to confirm what the mother said but reported the mother as stating, ‘It started reversing her tumor for the first time and the tumor reduced in size by 90% during the past year.’.. ‘My daughter’s cancer has not spread. And no, she hasn’t had chemotherapy or any other treatments for the last 11 months,’ explained Christina. ‘She is thriving, surviving and doing better than ever.’.. The daughter, now 13, was taken in “protective” custody by Nevada police and later transferred back to Oregon… Last week, (the mother) Christina was arrested on two counts each of first-degree custodial interference and first-degree criminal mistreatment at the Clackamas County Jail.”

Real Vampires’ Fears of Coming out of the Coffin to Social Workers and Helping Professionals” was conducted by researchers from Idaho State University and College of the Canyons and the Center for Positive Sexuality in Los Angeles… Some of these “real vampires” prefer to feed on “psychic or pranic energy” while others, called “sanguinarians,” prefer to feed on “small amounts” of human or animal blood… (Of the eleven “real vampires” interviewed for the study, three said they preferred psychic energy, three said they preferred blood, and five said they got energy from multiple sources.).. Williams explained that no one should be bothered by a person wanting to drink another person’s blood because ‘it is generally expected within the community that vampires should act ethically and responsibly in feeding practices,’ and it’s not their blood-drinking that’s the real problem here — it’s the fact that they have to worry that other people will judge them for their blood-drinking.(emphasis added)

U.S. issues warrant to seize Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 – From Tehran Times, Aug. 17 –  https://www.tehrantimes.com/news/439338/U-S-issues-warrant-to-seize-Iranian-oil-tanker-Grace-1 – “(According to a report from Al Jazeera in Washington): ‘The big question is will the British government help the U.S. by seizing this ship, will Interpol be involved or will the U.S. government try to seize that ship.’… According to radio transmission exchanges overheard by Al Jazeera, the ship is expected to set sail on Sunday evening… The Gibraltar Chronicle newspaper also reported that the vessel was unlikely to sail before Sunday, citing an unnamed source who added that it was waiting for six new crew members including a captain to arrive that day… A lawyer for the Grace 1’s current captain, an Indian national, said that his client had asked to be replaced… ‘He doesn’t want to stay in command of the ship, he wants to go home, because he wasn’t happy to go back and pick up the broken pieces,’ his lawyer Richard Wilkinson told The Associated Press news agency. ‘But he’s a professional skipper and needs to wait for a new crew to do a proper handover.’.. Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons, reporting from Gibraltar, said the Grace 1 signage had been removed as well as the Panamanian flag…’The navigation systems, all of them, indicate that it’s still Grace 1, but in terms of maritime law, this vessel really has no visible identity,’ he said.”

According to the document, the vessel, all the oil aboard and $995,000 are subject to forfeiture based on violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), bank fraud, money laundering, and terrorism forfeiture statutes… In addition, the document stresses that ‘a seizure warrant and a forfeiture complaint are merely allegations. The burden to prove forfeitability in a civil forfeiture proceeding is upon the government’, according to the Justice Department… …a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Mousavi, said on Friday that Tehran had not provided guarantees that its oil tanker Grace 1 would not go to Syria upon its release. Mousavi confirmed an earlier Foreign Ministry statement that the oil tanker was not heading to Syria when it was detained off Gibraltar’s coast by UK marines on 4 July. Meanwhile, he noted that Iran was providing to Syria support in such spheres as energy and oil… The US Department of State on Thursday threatened any individuals linked to the Iranian Grace 1 oil tanker with “serious consequences,” including visa restrictions due to alleged links to the IRGC.”

Trump inches toward Afghan peace plan to end longest US war – by Jennifer Jacobs, Nick Wadhams – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-16/trump-to-discuss-afghanistan-peace-plan-with-senior-advisers – “President Donald Trump met his top national security advisers on Friday as his team prepares to unveil an Afghanistan peace agreement with the Taliban that would help bring an end to America’s longest war, according to a person familiar with the matter… Among those discussing the matter with Trump at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, were Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, the person said. The U.S. special envoy for the talks, Zalmay Khalilzad, will then present the plan to Taliban leaders in a new round of discussions in Qatar in the coming days, according to another person with knowledge of the discussions… Khalilzad briefed analysts in Washington on the plan Friday. He has led the talks for months with the initial goal of cutting U.S. troop levels in exchange for guarantees from the Taliban not to allow terror groups such as Islamic State to infiltrate the country… Pompeo later said there was “no deadline” for a troop withdrawal. The U.S. currently has about 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, and defense officials suggested late last year the administration was planning to withdraw about half of them as an initial step.”

Ukie Nationalism vs Otto von Bismarck – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/ukie-nationalism-vs-otto-von-bismarck/ – “The other significant force in the Ukraine is the West Ukrainian (Galician) Nazi death-squads and mobs. Their power is not a democracy either, but an ochlocracy. These guys are a minority, a pretty small one even, but they have enough muscle and even firepower to threaten any nominal Ukrainian leader. Furthermore, these folks have profoundly infiltrated all the police and security forces which, in theory, would have been able to control or disarm them (the SBU, especially, is chock full of Urkonazi thugs)… Now let’s begin by looking at the oligarchs: their number 1 priority is to continue to plunder the Ukraine. For that, you need the opposite of “law and order”: you need lawlessness, chaos, violence…”

Gibraltar defies US, releasing Iranian oil tanker – The move came after a last-minute request from Washington that the UK territory surrender the vessel – by Alison Tahmizian Meuse – https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/08/article/gibraltar-defies-us-releasing-iranian-oil-tanker/ – ” ‘Authorities in Gibraltar have released the Iranian supertanker Grace 1, which was seized on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping 2.1m barrels of crude oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions,’ the Gibraltar Chronicle tweeted… The paper earlier reported that the territory’s Supreme Court had received a request from the US Department of Justice for ‘mutual legal assistance in a bid to seize the ship.’.. The US request came after National Security Adviser John Bolton was visiting the United Kingdom, which claims Gibraltar as a territory… But after the court reconvened at 4pm local time, Chief Justice Anthony Dudley revealed his court had not been passed along any official applications from the American authorities, and so had declined to respond… ‘She is no longer a specified ship…and no longer subject to detention,’ the Gibraltar Chronicle quoted him as saying… The Iranian government, the paper said, had offered written assurances to Gibraltar authorities that the supertanker would not continue on to Syria after being allowed to set sail.”

How the Government and Pharmaceutical Companies are Trying to Steal Cannabis – from Modern Alternative Mama –  https://modernalternativemama.com/2019/08/15/how-the-government-and-pharmaceutical-companies-are-trying-to-steal-cannabis/ – Cannabis has been in the news for years.  California was the first state to pass a medical marijuana law in 1996; followed by Colorado in 2000, which expanded to recreational in 2010. (source) 34 states now have medical marijuana laws on the books, and in 13 states, cannabis is fully legal, including recreational use.(source).. But while we’re making strides now, there is a long, dark history surrounding cannabis in the US.  The medical industry used criminalizing it to their advantage…and they’re poised to use legalizing it to their advantage, too.  We can’t allow them to do this to us after all they’ve already done to hurt the population.”

US move halts release of Iranian tanker held in Gibraltar – by Aritz Parra and Jon Gambrell, AP – https://www.msn.com/en-xl/middleeast/middleeast-top-stories/us-move-halts-release-of-iranian-tanker-held-in-gibraltar/ar-AAFQgrS – “The Gibraltar government confirmed earlier media reports that the U.S. Department of Justice had sought to extend the detention of the oil tanker Grace 1, prompting the Supreme Court in the territory to adjourn a scheduled decision on whether to release the ship until later in the day… ‘The U.S. Department of Justice has applied to seize the Grace 1 on a number of allegations, which are now being considered,’ the Gibraltar government said in a statement, adding that the matter would be reviewed by the court at 4 p.m. local time… The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

Israel Plans To Carry Out Strikes On ‘Iranian-backed Militias’ In Iraq: Reportshttps://southfront.org/israel-plans-to-carry-out-strikes-on-iranian-backed-militias-in-iraq-reports/ – “Israel allegedly plans to strike Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) ammo stores, according to Iraqi security expert Fadhil Abu Ragheef, cited by RT Arabic: ‘Available information suggests that Israel is preparing to bomb the weapons caches of Hashd al-Sha’abi [the Arabic name of the PMU] forces, and not the command centers or fortifications of the fighters. This is quite likely to happen,’ Fadhil Abu Ragheef said…      He added that ‘what happened yesterday in the weapons depots south of Baghdad may be part of the plan that Israel is preparing.’.. The incident in question is a fire in an ammunition depot, resulting from an explosion in southern Baghdad. The camp, in which the depot was located belonged to the PMU.

Turkish-Backed Militants Target Syrian Army Vehicles, Gatherings With Guided Missiles (Videos) – https://southfront.org/turkish-backed-militants-target-syrian-army-vehicles-gatherings-with-guided-missiles-videos/ – “The Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) targeted on August 13 and 14 several vehicles and a gathering of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) east of the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib’s southern countryside with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs)… The strikes destroyed two truck-mounted 57mm cannons, a battle tank and a vehicle near the towns of Sukayk and Tell Maraq. A gathering of Syrian soldiers in the outskirt of Tell Tar’I was also hit… While these strikes halted the SAA advance east of Khan Shaykhun, the army was able to reach the town’s western entrance after securing the villages of Kafr Ayn, Tall Aas, Khirbat Murshid and Mantar… This intense use of ATGMs indicates that Turkey is still supporting the NFL, which is now defending positions of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in Greater Idlib.”

Syrian Army Reached Khan Shaykhun’s Western Entrance After Resuming Its Advance In Southern Idlibhttps://southfront.org/syrian-army-reached-khan-shaykhuns-western-entrance-after-resuming-its-advance-in-southern-idlib/ – “Khan Shaykhun is located on the highway linking the Syrian capital, Damascus, with the city of Aleppo, the country’s industrial center. The town is also considered the gateway to the southern Idlib countryside… SAA troops are now reportedly situated only 2km away from Khan Shaykun’s western district. The assault on the town could begin in any given minute.”
How Real Power Kills or Rescues: Epstein Death Evidence so Far – by Makia Freeman – https://thefreedomarticles.com/epstein-death-evidence-so-far/Makia covers all of the important factoids in a concise report

Idaho Mother of Medically Kidnapped 16-Year-Old Indicted by Grand Jury and Re-arrested on Felony Injury to Child Chargeshttps://healthimpactnews.com/2019/idaho-mom-arrested-second-time-as-attempts-to-silence-her-fail-meanwhile-16-year-old-son-suffers-in-foster-care/ – “However, the night before the hearing, Kristine received a phone call from her attorney who informed her that the hearing had once again been canceled. She was told that Shari Dodge had gone to a grand jury instead, without the knowledge of her attorney, and received an indictment against Kristine… In other words, Prosecutor Shari Dodge took her “expert” witnesses, Dr. King and Dr. Barton, behind closed doors in order to secretly obtain the indictment through their hearsay allegations, which prevented Kristine from presenting her own witnesses and evidence as she would have been able to do at a preliminary hearing and also nullified Kristine’s right to have the preliminary hearing in front of a judge… Kristine points out that this is obviously a tactic done by the prosecutor to avoid public scrutiny of the hearing or to allow her to present the evidence that challenges the allegation of Injury to Child. Kristine says that Shari Dodge was afraid of the crowd at CPS hearing on July 16th, so: ‘she went behind my attorney’s back to get this indictment, obviously in part to avoid having to face me in court. She probably also didn’t want to have to walk past all those people again.’.. The grand jury indictment also means that Kristine was no longer able to have a hearing on the No Contact Order that was put into place in June, which currently prevents her from having off-site visits with her son and forces all visitation with Brandon to be in the CPS office, including his 16th birthday and homeschool graduation party.”

As US pressure increases on Iran-backed militias, they turn to Iran – by Ali Mamouri – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2019/08/iraq-iran-us-pmu.html – “Iran-backed Shiite militias have been under increasing pressure recently in Iraq not only from the United States — which monitors their activities closely — but also from the public and the Iraqi government… During an interview Aug. 9 with a small group of Iraqi and foreign media representatives, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said he has already begun implementing a decree he issued last month regarding the regulation of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). Abdul Mahdi said although some of the PMU have concerns about the decree and have questioned it, ‘We are continuing the implementation of the decree as the majority of the PMU are supporting it.’ (comment: this is simply an obvious, blatant lie)… Kata’ib Hezbollah slammed the decree soon after it was issued in early July. A PMU website attributed the decree to US and Saudi pressure on Abdul Mahdi. Meanwhile, most of the PMU — including factions close to Ayatollah Ali Sistani such as al-Abbas Combat Division — have been silent about the decree, following all the prime minister’s orders as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces without resistance.”

Israel Has “the Most Moral Army in the World”? – The creepy French “intellectual” Bernard-Henri Levy gets it wrong – by Philip Giraldi – https://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-has-most-moral-army-world/5685063 – “Twelve Palestinians and four British observers were injured badly enough to be hospitalized. The British reported that they were ‘stamped on, dragged by the hair, strangled with a scarf and pepper sprayed by Israeli border police.’ One who was hospitalized described how Israeli soldiers dragged him by his feet, lifting him up, and kicking him in the stomach, while one soldier stamped on his head four times “at full force” before standing on his head and pulling his hair. Another suffered a fractured rib after ‘[the policeman] then stamped on my throat and others started punching my torso. It was a sadistic display of violence…’.. Yet another foreign observer was dragged out of the house, ‘…her hands were crushed so badly that she suffered a fractured knuckle on her left hand, and her right hand suffered severe tissue damage ‘which will be permanently misshapen unless she gets cosmetic surgery.’.’.. Edmond Sichrovsky, an Austrian activist of Jewish origin, who was in one of the houses, described how Israeli forces broke the door down, first dragging out the Palestinians, “knocking the grandfather to the floor in front of his crying and screaming grandchildren.” Cell phones were forcibly removed to eliminate any picture taking or filming before soldiers began attacking him and four other activists… I was repeatedly kicked and kneed, which left a bloody nose and multiple cuts, as well breaking my glasses from a knee in the face. Once outside, they slammed me against a car while shouting verbal insults at me and women activists, calling them whores.’ ”

US team begins establishing op center in Turkey for ‘safe zone’ in Syria – Planned US-Turkey operation center meant to keep Syria off balance: Analyst –  https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/08/13/603400/US – “A US delegation arrived in Turkey on Wednesday to set up the operation center in the country for the stated purpose of creating a “safe zone” in Syria… James Jatras, former US Senate foreign policy analyst, who also attended the show, described as “significant” the recent victories of Syrian government forces against the foreign-sponsored militants, saying “Washington wants to keep things as chaotic as possible… The political commentator further said ‘Syria has won this war but the United States does continue to have interests and objectives in the theater in the region and therefore keeping Syria off balance… The United States is trying to disrupt the consolidation of the Syrian government over its country so that it keeps it distracted by that particular task,’ and prevent it from working with  its allies, namely Iran and Russia, in the battle against terrorism, Michael Lane, founder of American Institute for Foreign Policy, told Press TV… ‘The United States’ purpose or vision is to keep Syria from becoming part of a triangle of Iran, Russia and Syria,’ he said.”

Texas Judge Chastises CPS but 4-Year-Old Boy Still Not Returned to Family – by Texas Home School Coalition Association – https://healthimpactnews.com/2019/texas-judge-chastises-cps-but-4-year-old-boy-still-not-returned-to-family/ – “Judge Tracy Gray chastised CPS for the ridiculous list of requests included in their report to the court. Judge Gray threw out every item challenged by the family’s attorneys, ordered CPS to “expedite” their efforts to place Drake with family or friends, and to start allowing the family to bring a third party witness to visits with Drake, something CPS has prohibited thus far… While the hearing was a great success for the family, there is still a long way to go. Judge Gray clearly appeared frustrated by CPS’ brazenly unconstitutional requests (like a court-ordered admission of guilt). This offers a ray of hope that CPS may not be able to continue getting away with their illegal actions.”

Ukrainian Army Will Reach Russia’s Rostov In Event Of Hostilities Resumption In Donbass: Ex-Military Spokespersonhttps://southfront.org/ukrainian-army-will-reach-russias-rostov-in-event-of-hostilities-resumption-in-donbass-ex-military-spokesperson/ – “The former speaker of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) claimed that if the case of an attack by forces of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), the UAF may mount a counteroffensive that could potentially reach Rostov… Speaking about the mythical DPR/LPR offensive along the Krivoy Rog-Kremenchug-Poltava-Kiev line, Vladislav Voloshin said: ‘It is almost impossible to do something like this, because today the Ukrainian army is one of the most combat-ready in Europe. Because we are waging a real war. And our front is multi-layered,’ he promised… ‘And here is the short answer of what will ensue over there, our army will probably reach Rostov.’ (Note: Rostov is 35km beyond the Russian border [!] )

Iran Warns that Israeli Presence In Persian Gulf Would Lead To Warhttps://southfront.org/iran-warns-that-israeli-presence-in-persian-gulf-would-lead-to-war/ – “Israel’s presence in the Persian Gulf may lead to a war in the region, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri told Lebanese TV channel Al Mayadeen… ‘The United States and the United Kingdom must assume responsibility for the Zionist regime’s illegal presence in the Persian Gulf waters.’.. ‘Any presence of the Zionist regime in the Persian Gulf waters is illegal, as it may result in war and confrontation in the region,’ Tangsiri warned… Tangsiri alleged that the US and UK are responsible for the situation in the Persian Gulf, mostly by fabricating the various scenarios that they use as justification for their deployments.”

Israel-born Treasury official is at the center of U.S. policies on Iran – by Alison Weir –  https://israelpalestinenews.org/israel-born-treasury-official-is-at-the-center-of-u-s-policies-on-iran/ – According to a just published report in the Atlantic and a previous article by a former CIA officer, an Israeli-born individual is at the center of U.S. policies targeting Iran… The Atlantic reports that financial sanctions are the “key tool” the United States has been using against Iran during  ‘the past three presidential administrations. ”And Treasury official Sigal Mandelker” is the one with her hand on the lever.’.. According to the article, ‘Because Trump is anxious to avoid war with Iran but also eager to push the Iranians, she is one of the most powerful officials designing the strategy Trump’s administration hopes will force Iranian capitulation—or, failing that, perhaps even the government’s collapse.’.. Mandelker has been working on governmental policies since 2006 – the year in which U.S. officials ‘focused on finding ways to cut off Iran from the global financial system.’.. In the years just before her 2017 Under Secretary appointment, Mandelker was a partner at Proskauer Rose LLP, a powerful, politically connected international law firm with ties to Israel. The pro-Israel website Algemeiner,* reports: ‘Historically, Proskauer Rose was known as a ‘Jewish’ law firm.’  Partner Joseph M. Proskauer was ‘a Democratic Party stalwart, friend of politicians, state judge, civic and philanthropic personality, and major fund raiser for the state of Israel.’.. It appears that Mandelker is or was an Israeli citizen who was born in Israel. While this is periodically referred to in Israeli and Jewish media, the Treasury Department has refused to answer whether Mandelker is still an Israeli citizen, despite numerous email and phone inquiries requesting this information about a high U.S. official… The information is particularly relevant since U.S. attacks on Israel’s neighbors are often pushed by Israel partisans concerned with maintaining Israeli hegemony in the region.”

This Will Not Make You a Superhero (or a god) (49 min) – by Truthstream Media – The accelerating push to coerce humanity into accepting such “modifications” of our biology as “brain-computer interfaces” is a very long term project, fronted by salesmen like Elon Musk.

“Opposition” or Terrorists? Who Is Syria and Russia Targeting in Idlib? – by Tony Cartalucci – https://www.globalresearch.ca/opposition-terrorists-who-syria-russia-bombing-idlib/5686183 – “Were the situation reversed and the West was faced with an entire province or state occupied by Al Qaeda and its myriad of affiliates – total war would commence and would not end until the targeted region was purged entirely of militants. Civilian causalities would either go uncounted and under-reported, or spun as a necessity in confronting an otherwise intolerable bastion of armed terrorism… Terrorist forces have been concentrated in Idlib as Syrian forces pushed them out of virtually every other populated region of the country. Even the liberation of the City of Aleppo took years to achieve. Idlib is an entire governorate bordering Turkey which is still arming and protecting terrorist organizations both within Turkish territory itself and in Syrian territory occupied by Turkish forces… If there is one point of hope amid this still dangerous and deadly conflict – it’s that the Western media and inveterate war propagandists like Scott Lucas are no longer able to conceal the true nature of terrorists they have aided and abetted since 2011… They will continue trying nonetheless – but as Lucas just managed to do – will succeed only in exposing more of the network the US and its allies used in their proxy war against Damascus – thus further undermining regime change efforts in Syria and complicating similar attempts to target and overthrow other nations in the future.”

Criminal Embargoes: Venezuela and Iran in the Crosshairs of Murderers Inc – Who Is Next? – by Peter Koenig – https://www.globalresearch.ca/criminal-embargoes-venezuela-iran-crosshairs-murderers-inc-who-next/5686080 – “The latest is an open declaration of economic warfare by Washington, a total embargo on Venezuela; the embargo is now being turned into a naval blockade. Similar steps are to be taken for Iran. That literally means that no merchandise – no matter how vital for survival, like food and medication, is allowed into Venezuela. Three days ago, the US seized, totally illegally, a cargo ship attempting to deliver food and medication to Venezuela – in the Panama Canal, territory which the US does not own or control anymore… The ship was carrying soy cakes, from which Venezuela was to produce food. Never mind, that the cargoes are fully paid for by Venezuela. And this seems to be just the beginning. Vessels leaving Venezuela with petrol deliveries to client countries are also targeted for blockage, thus confiscating, or rather stealing, Venezuela’s main source of income on which she intends to survive and feed and provide health care for her people. This, in addition to the more than 130 billion dollars total Venezuelan assets confiscated – stolen – by the US worldwide… And nobody says beep. Almost.”

The FBI’s Alleged Conspiracy Theorist-Terrorist Connection Is Anti-American – by Andrew Korybko – https://www.globalresearch.ca/fbi-alleged-conspiracy-theorist-terrorist-connection-anti-american/5685908 – “The de-facto criminalization of free speech is an ongoing trend in American society that’s already pressured a lot of people to self-censor their beliefs in public in order to avoid official scrutiny from the authorities or harassment by their political opponents, but an intelligence bulletin released by the FBI’s Phoenix office back in May and only reported on by the Mainstream Media earlier this month might spread the dragnet even further by de-facto criminalizing the online pursuit of additional information that contradicts the official narrative about various events… The “secret police” (as they’d be described by the Mainstream Media if any other country’s version of the FBI was being reported on) believe that a connection exists between so-called “conspiracy theories” and domestic terrorism, and while there have veritably been some people who hold such controversially defined beliefs and ended up killing others, it’s anti-American to suspect that anyone engaged in seeking out all sides of every story (no matter how possibly implausible) automatically qualifies as a potential terrorist.”

My most important post. Ever. Children to Remake the World

The shape of the new Grand Initiative to remake the global economy (after the collapse of “Capitalism”) to continue the extraction of value and resources from the human population and the Earth emerges. – It is based on tropes of Ecology® and Oppression by “Ruling Elites,” though it comes from the “elite” controllers themselves. I think the series of 6 articles linked below puts it all together. This lets us know what we are immediately up against, and what we need to contend with if we’re to save the legacy of human culture (and the planet) through the next century.  –Bruce
