The Sauid-led coalition, which has waged an air campaign against the Houthis for four years now, claims it targeted a Houthi military facility ‘in accordance with international humanitarian law.’.. 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 Kidnapping – https://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?”

The Saker interviews Max van der Werff about the MH-17 conspiracy – http://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 – Report – https://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: NYT – https://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 Dead – https://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.”
