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?… 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 Idlib – https://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, 2019 – http://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 Yemen – https://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.
US hints at military response to Saudi attacks as oil prices surge – from Agence France Presse – https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/saudi-races-to-restore-oil-supply-after-strike-blamed-on-iran/ar-AAHjMy9 – “”There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” Trump tweeted.” – Comment: Can the Warmonger-In-Chief even compose a coherent sentence, as he invites the Saudi Pathocrats to direct the military might of the Empire?
US Officials Claim Yemen Not Behind Saudi Aramco Attack, Houthis Reveal ‘Intel Operation’ – Reports – https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201909161076810647-us-officials-claim-yemen-not-behind-saudi-aramco-attack-houthis-reveal-intel-operation—reports/ – US officials, cited by Reuters, so far decline to say from where the attack was launched. “There are two options, and we have our opinion on which it was“, US officials said, adding the Iraqi government declared that they were not behind the launches, Reuters reported… According to Reuters, citing US officials, Washington is working with Saudi officials who allege that cruise missiles were used in the attacks on the Saudi Aramco oil facilities… Over 17 devices were deployed, the US officials claimed, adding that not all of the devices reached their targets and some were recovered north of their intended destination, according to Reuters.”
