Isreali Air Force Strikes Syrian Army Artillery Pieces And Battle Tanks In Quneitra Province


The Israeli military announced on Saturday that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) destroyed undefined number of artillery pieces, battle tanks belonging to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Syrian province of Quneitra.

The Israeli claimed in a statement that 10 shells fired from the Syrian side had fallen in the Golan Heights and the airstrikes were a response to this. Hoever, Israel didn’t say that the SAA had fired the shells.

Since the Saturday morning, Al-Bath city in Quneitra has been under an attack from Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.

Many pro-government source reported that HTS and some Free Syrian Army groups have repeatedly open fire on the Israeli-held territory in order to provoke Israeli military strikes on the SAA .

Israel argues that only the SAA has a responsibility of any firing on the Israeli-held areas.

Many believe that this Israel policy is clearly sided and aimed at supporting of terrorist groups fighting against the SAA on the Golan Heights front.

The long term goal of the Israelis is to destroy their Middle Eastern neighbours, mostly using proxy armies, and eventually take control of these lands (which would be ethnically cleansed) to create a 'Greater Israel'. In order to do this they foment conflict and work to strongly influence foreign Governments and media throughout the world.

'We', the people of the world, are all subjects of a large scale intelligence/propaganda operation designed to achieve this end (which is backed up by the threat of 'world ending' nuclear terrorism - The Samson Option).

238 Arrested in Major Hollywood Pedophile Ring Bust


The Department of Justice has just conducted a series of raids across Los Angeles and arrested 238 people in connection with a Hollywood pedophilia network.

According to police, the arrests included some "major Hollywood players" as well as politicians, white-collar professionals, a monk, and other high-ranking clergy members.

The raids were conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, working directly with the Justice Department. Codenamed "Operation Broken Heart III", the sweeping raids targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police stated that they are unable to release any names at this point, but confirmed that the arrested included some "household names" in the entertainment industry.

Operation Broken Heart III is said to be part of a much larger operation that connects to national Elite pedophile rings and may extend worldwide.

RETAIL HELL: 5,300 Stores have CLOSED this year


Stores are closing at alarming rate. The number so far this year is triple what it was in the same period last year, according to an analysis by Fung Global Retail & Technology, a retail think tank.

There have been 5,300 store closing announcements through June 20, making it the second worst year on record at the six-month mark. The worst year ever for store closings was 2008 during the Great Recession when Credit Suisse counted 6,163 closings. But 2017 is poised to easily surpass that.

On Friday, Sears Holdings announced plans to shut an additional 20 stores that are losing money, including 18 Sears stores and two Kmart locations. And the retail trouble isn’t limited to the U.S., as Sears Canada filed for bankruptcy on Thursday and announced it would close 59 of its more than 200 locations.

The shift to online shopping is a big part of the problem. But brick-and-mortar stores are also suffering from overbuilding. Retail bankruptcies have also soared. There are 345 retailers that have filed for bankruptcy so far this year, according to BankruptcyData.com, up 32% from the same time last year.
http://www.govtslaves.com/retail-hell-5300-stores-closed-year/

The other huge contributing factor has been the outsourcing of industry causing massive job losses. People without jobs don't go shopping. The real unemployment rate is actually around 20% according to calculations made at shadowstats.com.

The World Is Going Down With Trump - Paul Craig Roberts


On June 21 the editorial board of the Washington Post, long a propaganda instrument believed to be in cahoots with the CIA and the deep state, called for more sanctions and more pressure on Russia.

One second’s thought is sufficient to realize how bad this advice is. The orchestrated demonization of Russia and its president began in the late summer of 2013 when the British Parliament and Russian diplomacy blocked the neoconned Obama regime’s planned invasion of Syria. An example had to be made of Russia before other countries began standing up to Washington. While the Russians were focused on the Sochi Olympic Games, Washington staged a coup in Ukraine, replacing the elected democratic government with a gang of Banderite neo-nazi thugs whose forebears fought for Hitler in World War II. Washington claimed it had brought democracy to Ukraine by putting neo-nazi thugs in control of the government.

Washington’s thugs immediately began violent attacks on the Russian population in Ukraine. Soviet war memorials were destroyed. The Russian language was declared banned from official use. Instantly, separatist movements began in the Russian parts of Ukraine that had been administratively attached to Ukraine by Soviet leaders. Crimea, a Russian province since the 1700s, voted overwhelmingly to seperate from Ukraine and requested to be reunited with Russia. The same occurred in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
 
These independent actions were misrepresented by Washington and the presstitutes who whore for Washington as a “Russian invasion.” Despite all facts to the contrary, this misrepresentation continues today. In US foreign policy, facts are not part of the analysis.

The most important fact that is overlooked by the Washington Post and the Russophobic members of the US government is that it is an act of insanity to call for more punishment and more pressure on a country with a powerful military and strategic nuclear capability whose military high command and government have already concluded that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear attack.

Are the Washington Post editors trying to bring on nuclear armageddon? If there was any intelligence present in the Washington Post, the newspaper would be urging that President Trump immediately call President Putin with reassurances and arrange the necessary meetings to defuse the situation.  Instead the utterly stupid editors urge actions that can only raise the level of tension. It should be obvious even to the Washington Post morons that Russia is not going to sit there, shaking in its boots, and wait for Washington’s attack. Putin has issued many warnings about the West’s rising threat to Russian security. He has said that Russia “will never again fight a war on its own territory.” He has said that the lesson he has learned is that “if a fight is unavoidable, strike first.” He has also said that the fact that no one hears his warnings makes the situation even more dangerous.

What explains the deafness of the West? The answer is arrogance and hubris.

As the presstitute media is incapable of reason, I will do their job for them. I call for an immediate face-to-face meeting between Trump and Putin at Reykjavik. Cold War II, begun by Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama, must be ended now.

So, where is President Trump? Why is the President of the United States unable to rise to the challenge? Why isn’t he the man Ronald Reagan was? Is it, as David Stockman says, that Trump is incapable of anything except tweeting? http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47310.htm 
 
Why hasn’t President Trump long ago ordered all intercepts of Russian chatter gathered, declassified, and made public? Why hasn’t Trump launched a criminal prosecution against John Brennan, Susan Rice, Comey, and the rest of the hit squad that is trying to destroy him?

Why has Trump disarmed himself with an administration chosen by Russiaphobes and Israel?

As David Stockman writes, Trump “is up against a Deep State/Dem/Neocon/mainstream media prosecution” and “has no chance of survival short of an aggressive offensive” against those working to destroy him. But there is no Trump offensive, “because the man is clueless about what he is doing in the White House and is being advised by a cacophonous coterie of amateurs and nincompoops. So he has no action plan except to impulsively reach for his Twitter account.”

Our president twitters while he and Earth itself are pushed toward destruction.

After Shocking Saudi Shakeup "Not A Question Of If But When New Escalation With Iran Starts"


Two days ago, when reporting on the surprising "terrorist attempt" by Iran's National Guard on a major Saudi offshore oilfiled (at least according to Saudi media), we said that "if the Saudi account of events is accurate, and if Iran is indeed preparing to take out Saudi oil infrastructure in retaliation or otherwise, the simmering cold war between Saudi Arabia and Iran is about to get very hot." This in turn followed an earlier analysis on the ongoing Syrian war in which we said that "the next major regional conflict appears set to be between Saudi Arabia and Iran. All it needs is a catalyst."

That catalyst, according to energy consultancy Petromatrix, may have been revealed overnight with the stunning Saudi royal shakeup in which the King announced he was stripping the current Crown Prince, his nephew Mohamed bin Nayef (MBF), of all titles and obligations, and replacing him with his son Mohamed bin Salman (MBS).

Summarizing the event, Petromatrix analyst Olivier Jakob wrote that "the day starts with the Saudi Crown Prince sent to retirement and replaced by the deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). MBS was already the strong hand in Saudi Arabia, this latest development, and the purge that goes with it, confirms that he is the de-facto king of Saudi Arabia. Under his watch, Saudi Arabia has developed aggressive foreign policies (Yemen, Qatar...) and he has not been shy about making strong statements against Iran."

The punchline: "with MBS now having greater control of Saudi Arabia and with Jared Kushner having a large control of the White House it is not really a question of if but rather of when a new escalation with Iran starts."
http://www.blacklistednews.com/After_Shocking_Saudi_Shakeup_%22Not_A_Question_Of_If_But_When_New_Escalation_With_Iran_Starts%22/59263/0/38/38/Y/M.html

It looks like the powers that be want a confrontation between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Even a limited exchange would be a boon for the oil price (at least in the short term) and for military spending in the region.

However, without outside help the Saudis in this conflict will be severely damaged. Outright invasions will be off the table so it'll be down to airstrikes and missile attacks. Iranian missiles are likely to devastate critical areas of Saudi oil infrastructure and perhaps military infrastructure. The US reaction would likely be to defend the Saudis, while the Iranians would have a level of Russian help. The amount of damage that Saudi aircraft could do to Iran is questionable, although attacks on their power grid would also be devastating. A short term confrontation may occur. The result of this will be to widen the schism between Russian and its allies and the West.

For all the above reasons, plus the opportunity for the Israelis to bomb Iranian nuclear sites, the likelihood that this war will be pushed by players behind the scenes is very high.

UPDATE:

CNN just aired a story with this title: The images Saudi Arabia doesn't want you to see. Is this an indication that the Saudis are going to be thrown under the bus? or are they being leveraged to back down on their overall war plans? (CNN = CIA/Deep State)

Germany Quits Incirlik, Turkey Marches on Kurds


Today has brought a cluster of news emphasising the growing estrangement between Turkey and the West.

Turkish President Erdogan has condemned Albanian expansionism in the Balkans despite the implicit encouragement this has been getting from the West, which has been quietly encouraging Albania’s ‘Greater Albania’ project in order to weaken the influence in the Balkans of Serbia and above all of Russia.

Turkey is now also reported to be sending more troops to Syria, this time apparently expressly targeting the Kurds, who have become the US’s principal allies in Syria.

Now comes news of an overwhelming vote in the German parliament for a complete withdrawal of German forces from Incirlik air base in Turkey, the main air base used by NATO forces in Turkey, and the one from which many of the flights of NATO aircraft into Syria are launched.

News of the German withdrawal is not unexpected.  Relations between Germany and Turkey have been deteriorating steadily for months, with the Germans becoming increasingly critical of President Erdogan’s domestic policies and Erdogan in turn criticising Germany for its decision to prevent Turkish politicians campaigning amongst the Turkish community in Germany during Turkey’s recent constitutional referendum.

Behind the growing estrangement between Germany and Turkey is the growing realisation in Turkey that the country’s longstanding objective of joining the EU is unachievable, with large swathes of the European public and several EU states determined to prevent it ever happening.

As the prospect of Turkey’s integration into the EU has waned, Turkish policy has gradually reoriented towards a more nationalist direction, with Turkish leaders – not just Erdogan – increasingly emphasising Turkish national interests over NATO and Western ones.

The conflict between Turkey and the Kurds crystallises the issue.  European opinion – including in Germany – has long sympathised with the Kurds in their conflict with Turkey, and has come increasingly to support the Kurds in Syria fighting ISIS.

Opinion within Turkey however sees this issue very differently, with even many of Erdogan’s opponents seeing the possible emergence of a Kurdish independent or autonomous area led by the YPG in Syria as an existential threat to Turkey.

Turkey refuses to distinguish between the YPG in Syria and the Kurdish group the PKK which is leading the Kurdish struggle against the Turkish authorities in Turkey itself.  It points out correctly to the obvious ideological affinity between the two groups (both are leftist) and tends to think of one as a branch of the other.  It claims to be baffled that the West, which along with Turkey considers the PKK a terrorist organisation, has aligned itself so closely with the YPG.

The low opinion many Western leaders have for him must have become clear to Turkish President Erdogan even more obviously following the lukewarm support they gave him during his conflict with Russia following the downing in November 2015 by the Turkish air force of a Russian SU-24 bomber in Syria, and still more so following their failure to rally to him during last year’s coup attempt. 

 Indeed it is an open secret that many European leaders would have been quietly delighted if the coup attempt had succeeded.  There are even persistent rumours – never convincingly denied – that European leaders rejected Erdogan’s enquiries about possible asylum during the coup.

Erdogan’s and Turkey’s rapprochement with Russia since June last is in part a consequence of this growing estrangement between Turkey and the West, but it is now also becoming a contributory cause.

With the German finance minister talking today of Europe’s mission being to limit the spread of Russian and Chinese influence, the growing partnership between Turkey and Russia, and Turkey’s gradual engagement with the Eurasian institutions being set up by Russia and China (Erdogan for example attended the recent One Belt, One Road conference in Beijing) is inevitably heightening suspicion of Turkey in Germany and the West.

The decision of the German parliament to pull German forces out of Incirlik and to redeploy them to Jordan is therefore unsurprising.

The big question is not whether Turkey and Europe – and indeed Turkey and the West – are becoming estranged from each other.  It is how far this estrangement will go.

I remain skeptical that Turkey is heading for a full realignment with Russia and China.  I doubt that there are many people in Turkey who want that, and I am sure that there are many people within the Turkish elite – including within Erdogan’s own entourage – who would strongly oppose it.  I doubt also that this is the desire of Turkish President Erdogan himself.

However beyond a certain point events begin to acquire their own momentum.  As I wrote recently in connection with the boorish reception of President Erdogan during his recent visit to the US, the West seems to have a tin ear to Turkish sensibilities, and seems incapable of understanding that Turkey’s size and power and its key importance in the eastern Mediterranean, in the Middle East and in Central Asia means that it is a country which must be listened to and taken seriously.

As I have said previously, Western leaders seem to be doing everything in their power to drive Turkey away, and if it eventually does so they will have no one to blame but themselves.

The [John] McCain Institute funded by George Soros and Saudi Arabia, EXPOSED


Neocon Arizona Republican Senator John McCain may have his own little Clinton Foundation pay-to-play scheme operating in the halls of the US Senate.

The Daily Caller investigative group has learned that in 2012 McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The McCain Institute for International Leadership’s mission is to serve as a “legacy” for John McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom”, but many readers certainly are well aware that human rights and dignity are the furthest things from the neocon warmonger’s mind.

The institute is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation and has assets valued at $8.1 million, associated with Arizona State University.

Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute. The McCain Institute to date has refused to publicly explain the Saudi Arabian million dollar contribution.

The McCain Institute’s donor list gets even more nefarious with more digging, as revealed by The Daily Caller, linking McCain to regime change globalists like George Soros…

A very good common sense proposal from Sargon of monitoring Mosques (and Churches) to make sure there are no radical preachers that incite murder.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Joins Efforts of Violent Wife Beater Jon Entine and Convicted Felon Ringleader of ACSH to Produce Monsanto Propaganda Film Called “Food Evolution”


The Monsanto Mafia is at it again, pushing corporate poison propaganda under the guise of “science,” and this time they’ve recruited junk science loudmouth Neil deGrasse Tyson to lend his condescending voice to a propaganda project that was spearheaded behind the scenes by violent wife beater (and biotech propaganda shill) Jon Entine and features messaging from the ACSH, run by a convicted criminal felon. (Jon Entine is a former Forbes.com writer who Natural News exposed as a violent wife abuser and sociopath.)

The new film, coming out later this week, is called “Food Evolution,” and it claims that GMOs and glyphosate weedkiller are Monsanto’s gift to humanity… so eat more! (Perhaps it should be called FoodEVILution.) Natural News will be covering the film and publishing profiles of the unethical participants in the film at a new website launching this week called FoodEvolution.news. You can also follow news on Neil deGrasse Tyson at the new website NeilTyson.news.

As uncovered by leaked emails (see below), the movie was clearly shaped behind the scenes by all the usual biotech industry shills and propagandists: Jon Entine, the ACSH, UC Davis professor Alison van Eenennaam (who used to work for Monsanto), Pamela Ronald and others. It’s the same “Monsanto mafia” that recently got caught spending millions of dollars on “negative P.R.” campaigns to smear clean food activists like the Food Babe (or even scientists such as Seralini). This is also the same group that tried to assassinate the character of Doctor Oz because of his support of GMO labelling.

The United States and Russia Are Now In Military Conflict In Syria - Lionel Nation

The country’s defense ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down. A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.

GULF TENSIONS FLARE AS SAUDI ARABIA SHOOTS IRANIAN FISHING BOATS, KILLS FISHERMAN


"Two fishing boats were in the Persian Gulf and strayed due to high waves. The Saudi coastguard say the boats entered Saudi waters and killed one of the fishermen," Majid Aghababaie, head of border affairs at the interior ministry, said in a statement published by Iranian media.

"We are pursuing this matter to determine if the Iranian boats had crossed the Saudi border or not, but the action of the Saudis does not comply with humanitarian and navigational principles," Aghababaie said.

"Even if the boats had entered Saudi waters, the coastguard were not authorised to open fire," Aghababaie added.
http://www.blacklistednews.com/Gulf_Tensions_Flare_as_Saudi_Arabia_Shoots_Iranian_Fishing_Boats%2C_Kills_Fisherman/59200/0/38/38/Y/M.html

It looks like Saudi Arabia wants some kind of confrontation with Iran, to drive the oil price higher (recent production cuts did little to the price), and/or because they are hacked off with Russia-Iranian success in Syria, and/or for Iranian support(?) in the war in Yemen, where Saudi forces have had their asses handed to them on a number of occasions. Expect more of these provocations, since there has been little international reaction to what's happened thus far. I think these (Saudi Arabia) countries are now realising (the penny has dropped) that the UN is not going to 'do' anything.

Democracy Is A Front For Central Bank Rule - Paul Craig Roberts


Several years ago when the Federal Reserve had its Fed funds rate at zero to 25 basis points (one-quarter of one percent—0.25%), there was a great deal of talk, somehow presented as urgent, whether the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates.
 
RT asked me if the Fed was going to raise interest rates. I answered that the purpose of low interest rates was to restore the solvency of the balance sheets of the “banks too big to fail” by raising debt prices. The lower the interest rate, the higher the prices of debt instruments. The Fed drives bond prices up by purchasing bonds, and the Fed raises interest rates by selling bonds, or by purchasing fewer of them than previously.

I told RT that a real increase in interest rates would undercut the Fed’s policy of rescuing the balance sheets of the big banks whose balance sheets were loaded up with bad debt that desperately needed a rise in debt prices for the banks to remain solvent.

When shortly thereafter the Fed raised the overnight funds rate, it blew my credibility with RT. RT did not understand that real interest rates had not increased. Indeed, two days after the “rate increase” the nominal interest rate had not changed. It was still 18 basis points. The announced rate had gone from the old range of zero to 25 basis points to a new range of 25 basis points to 50 basis points. The former max was the current minimum.
 
Moreover, over the long time period in which there was such well marketed concern over whether such an inconsequential interest rate rise would occur, inflation had risen, making the real interest rate negative well below the 18 basis points official interest rate. By the time the Fed raised the nominal rate, the real rate was already more negative. Thus, there was no rise in real interest rates.
 
The financial press did not explain this, either from incompetence or collusion. RT accepted the fake news as reality and wrote off my credibility. I am often interviewed by RT, but no longer on economic matters, about which I know the most.

A couple of days ago, after a long period of waiting for another interest rate rise, an announcement from the Fed, amidst further indication of US economic decline, announced another 25 basis point increase in the target range for the Fed funds rate.
 
Inflation aside, in fact interest rates declined, as my sometime co-author Dave Kranzler reports. http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/has-the-fed-actually-raised-rates-this-year/
Despite this publicized “rise” of the Fed funds rate, the 10-year interest rate on Treasuries “has declined 30 basis points this year. Thus for certain borrowers, the Fed has effectively lowered the cost of borrowing.”

Kranzler goes on to point out that “the spread between the 30-day Treasury Bill and the 10-yr Treasury has declined this year from 193 basis points to 125 basis points – a 68 basis point drop in the cost of funding for borrowers who have access to the highly engineered derivative products that enable these borrowers to take advantage of the shape of the yield curve in order to lower their cost of borrowing.”

Kranzler provides a chart that shows that the spread between the 30-day Treasury bill and the 10-year Treasury bond is narrowing. As the short-term rate rises, the long term rate is falling, and the spread between the long and short rate has declined 68 basis points from almost two percentage points to one and one quarter percentage point.

Clearly, this is not a rise in interest rates.

Clearly also, a rise in the Fed funds rate no longer signals a rise in all interest rates.
 
Why is the Fed raising short rates when the long rates are falling?

Why do “democratic Western democracies” have central banks that do nothing except protect big banks at the expense of the people?

How long will the insouciant peoples of the West continue to conspire in their own demise?

Robert Mueller Hires Lawyer Who Represented Hillary During Email Scandal


Of the 13 attorneys hired by special counsel Robert Mueller to aid him in his investigation of President Donald Trump’s election campaign activity, one previously defended the Clinton Foundation from allegations it operated as a veritable racketeering enterprise.

As noted in a Politico report from 2015, at the time attorney Jeannie Rhee defended the foundation from Freedom of Information Act requests filed by conservative activists who suspected the organization’s behavior was directly linked to former Secretary of State Hillary’s Clinton’s improper use of a private email server during her time in office.

Long story short, Rhee is clearly an ally of the left, as are a number of the other attorneys brought aboard Mueller’s team.

According to CNN, of the five attorneys who had been identified by Friday, three had “donated overwhelmingly to Democrats, totaling more than $53,000 since 1988,” including Rhee, Andrew Weissmann and James Quarles.

This is not good. It also doesn’t help that Mueller’s investigation has been expanded to include possible obstruction of justice by Trump, who Democrats claim violated the law when he expressed his hope to former FBI Director James Comey in a conversation four months ago that the bureau would drop its investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

And then there’s this: Mueller ran the FBI from 2001 to 2013. During that time, Comey regarded him as a mentor, while Mueller in turn viewed Comey as a protégé.

Empire Files: Venezuela Economy Minister—Sabotage, Not Socialism, is the Problem


Today in the corporate media, Venezuela’s economic problems are used to paint the country as a failed state, in need of foreign-backed regime change.

To get the Bolivarian government’s side of the crisis, Abby Martin interviews Venezuela’s Minister of Economic Planning, Ricardo Menéndez. They discuss shortages, oil dependency, the role of the US-backed opposition movement and more.

The Empire Files joined him in Cojedes, Venezuela, where he was speaking to mass community meetings, organizing the population to fight against what he calls an economic war.

'Conflict Gets More Dangerous': Russia Halts Co-Operation with US in Syria


Russia halts co-operation with USA in Syria as US downs Syrian (SAA) jet-fighter over ISIS hold city of Raqqa. Recently US held a number of attacks against SAA, as Pentagon claims pro-Asad forced reached de-confliction zone. Russia describes it as violation of not only the Syrian sovereignty but the international law as well.

US Shoots Down Syrian Jet, Russia Threatens to Track and Attack Anything West of Euphrates - Styx

Syrian War Report – June 19, 2017: US Downs Syrian Su-22, Pushes To SAA-SDF Escalation




This is South Front's explanation of the incident. Some viewers might note that the graphic depicting a Super Hornet at 56 seconds is the wrong one, it shows a classic Hornet. The video also covers the Iranian missile strikes.

The clip here shows that the US is setting up to illegally occupy areas within Syria, and discourage SAA operations. Slowly but surely both the USA and Turkey have overtly intervened in the conflict. They must be challenged at the UN by all other nations and world powers such as Russia and China.

Syrian Warplane Engaging ISIS Shot Down By U.S-Led Coalition!


Reports are now confirming that a U.S-Led Coalition has just shot down a Syrian warplane inside of southern Raqqa in Syria WHILE it was engaging ISIS so in this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth shows how there is no longer any question as to who the real face of terror is in the middle east!



The US deep state neocons are still trying to push along this conflict. Hopefully their actions will lead to some internal repercussions within the establishment. Many in the US Armed Forces to not like to think of themselves as allies of ISIS. Such overt actions highlight US support for extremist terrorists in Syria.

US-Led Coalition Downs Syrian Army Plane (that was Bombing ISIS) in Southern Raqqa


One of the Syrian fighter jets has been shot down by U.S.-led forces. The Syrian government says the plane was conducting a counter-terrorist raid, when it was brought down south of Raqqa.



The Syrian warplane was not threatening SDF forces but was attacking a fleeing ISIS convoy. The US actions here are criminal and inexcusable.

The idea that there are agreed upon deconfliction zones in Syria is also a myth. This is a unilateral US claim. All US forces are operating in Syria illegally.

Now the Russians are rightly setting up a situation to threaten US aircraft operating over Syria. This is because the US word cannot be trusted. They are acting as a rogue State:
Any Aircraft of US-led Coalition Discovered West Of Euphrates River Will Be Followed By Russian Air And Ground Defenses As Targets

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the US aviation attack in Syrian airspace may be considered an “act of aggression,” and announced that it halts is halting all interactions with the US within the framework on the memorandum of incident prevention in Syrian skies.

Now, Russian missile defense will follow any aircraft of the US-led coalition west of the Euphrates River.
In areas where Russian aviation is conducting combat missions in the Syrian skies, any flying objects, including jets and unmanned aerial vehicles of the international coalition discovered west of the Euphrates River will be followed by Russian air and ground defenses as air targets,” the ministry announced.
The Russian military added that the US-led coalition command didn’t make an attempt to avoid the incident via the deconfliction channel with Russia.
We consider such actions of the US command as an intentional violation of its obligations in the framework of the memo on avoiding incidents and the safety of aviation flights during operations in Syria signed on October 20, 2015.”
According to the ministry, the US action against the Syrian Air Force is an act of military aggression against the sovereign state.
The repeated hostilities of US aviation against the legitimate armed forces of a UN member state under the guise of ‘combating terrorism’ are a gross violation of the international law and de facto a military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic.
On June 18, the US-led coalition downed a Syrian Air Force Su-22 jet in the western part of the Raqqah province. The Su-22 was fulfilling its mission against ISIS.
https://southfront.org/aircraft-us-led-coalition-discovered-west-euphrates-river-will-followed-russian-air-ground-defenses-targets/
Presently International Law is largely irrelevant in this theatre.  It comes down to whichever side can militarily outmuscle the other and/or successfully discourage the other with threats of escalation - which is why the Russians are reluctant to impose a complete no-fly zone using their ground anti air systems (an action that would be entirely justified).

Iran Fires Missiles Against 'Terrorist Bases' in E. Syria in Retaliation for Tehran Attacks


Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have launched a mid-range ballistic missile attack on terrorist positions in the Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor in retaliation for terrorist attacks in Tehran, Tasnim news agency reports.



Although the neocons want Iran to be suckered into a wider war via the conflict in Syria, the terrorist attack provocation will ultimately be good in terms of encouraging the Iranians to more fully support the Syrian Army and hasten the end of the fighting. They cannot easily escape the trap because if they do nothing large areas of Syria will remain in the hands of terrorists. Continued, and escalated, 'covert' troop and equipment support should happen. The Russians should escalate plus Chinese ground and/or air forces should enter the fray to put a quick end to this proxy war madness.

Also, the use of accurate ballistic missiles in this Iranian strike sends a clear message to the Saudis who are supporters of ISIS. The strike is partly a warning to the Israelis, that Iran might be able to damage them if Israel decides to launch a nuclear strike. Iran would never initiate a conflict here because of fears of nuclear retaliation. They could respond and strike Israeli nuclear power facilities if they are attacked. Any use of nuclear weapons by Israel would massively turn world opinion against them regardless of any excuses they made (more so that the revisionist criticism levelled against the US atomic weapons use against Japan in WW2).

Special Prosecutor Mueller Is a Political Hack


The New York Times characterizes special prosecutor Robert Mueller as being independent and fair:
Robert S. Mueller III managed in a dozen years as F.B.I. director to stay above the partisan fray, carefully cultivating a rare reputation for independence and fairness.
Let’s fact-check the Times …

Anthrax Frame-Up

Mueller presided over the incredibly flawed anthrax investigation.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office says the FBI’s investigation was “flawed and inaccurate”.  The investigation was so bogus that a senator called for an “independent review and assessment of how the FBI handled its investigation in the anthrax case.”

The head of the FBI’s anthrax investigation says the whole thing was a sham. He says that the FBI higher-ups “greatly obstructed and impeded the investigation”, that there were “politically motivated communication embargos from FBI Headquarters”.

Moreover, the anthrax investigation head said that the FBI framed scientist Bruce Ivins.  On July 6, 2006, the FBI’s anthrax investigation FBI Plaintiff provided a whistleblower report of mismanagement to the FBI’s Deputy Director pursuant to Title 5, United States Code, Section 2303, which noted:
 (j) the FBI’s fingering of Bruce Ivins as the anthrax mailer; and, (k) the FBI’s subsequent efforts to railroad the prosecution of Ivins in the face of daunting exculpatory evidence.
 
Following the announcement of its circumstantial case against Ivins, Defendants DOJ and FBI crafted an elaborate perception management campaign to bolster their assertion of Ivins’ guilt. These efforts included press conferences and highly selective evidentiary presentations which were replete with material omissions.
In other words, Mueller presided over the attempt to frame an innocent man (and see this).

Unsure About Assassination of U.S. Citizens Living On U.S. Soil

Rather than saying “of course not!”, Mueller said that he wasn’t sure whether Obama had the right to assassinate Americans living on American soil.

*************

Torture

FBI special agent Colleen Rowley points out:
Mueller was even okay with the CIA conducting torture programs after his own agents warned against participation. Agents were simply instructed not to document such torture, and any “war crimes files” were made to disappear. Not only did “collect it all” surveillance and torture programs continue, but Mueller’s (and then Comey’s) FBI later worked to prosecute NSA and CIA whistleblowers who revealed these illegalities.

Iraq War

Rowley notes:
When you had the lead-up to the Iraq War … Mueller and, of course, the CIA and all the other directors, saluted smartly and went along with what Bush wanted, which was to gin up the intelligence to make a pretext for the Iraq War. For instance, in the case of the FBI, they actually had a receipt, and other documentary proof, that one of the hijackers, Mohamed Atta, had not been in Prague, as Dick Cheney was alleging. And yet those directors more or less kept quiet. That included … CIA, FBI, Mueller, and it included also the deputy attorney general at the time, James Comey.

Post 9/11 Round-Up

FBI special agent Rowley also notes:
Beyond ignoring politicized intelligence, Mueller bent to other political pressures. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Mueller directed the “post 9/11 round-up” of about 1,000 immigrants who mostly happened to be in the wrong place (the New York City area) at the wrong time. FBI Headquarters encouraged more and more detentions for what seemed to be essentially P.R. purposes. Field offices were required to report daily the number of detentions in order to supply grist for FBI press releases about FBI “progress” in fighting terrorism. Consequently, some of the detainees were brutalized and jailed for up to a year despite the fact that none turned out to be terrorists.

9/11 Cover Up

Rowley points out:
The FBI and all the other officials claimed that there were no clues, that they had no warning [about 9/11] etc., and that was not the case. There had been all kinds of memos and intelligence coming in. I actually had a chance to meet Director Mueller personally the night before I testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee … [he was] trying to get us on his side, on the FBI side, so that we wouldn’t say anything terribly embarrassing. …
But overwhelming evidence shows that 9/11 was foreseeable. Indeed, Al Qaeda crashing planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon was itself foreseeable. Even the chair of the 9/11 Commission said that the attack was preventable.
Rowley also said says:
TIME Magazine would probably have not called my own disclosures a “bombshell memo” to the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry in May 2002 if it had not been for Mueller’s having so misled everyone after 9/11.
In addition, Rowley says that the FBI sent Soviet-style “minders” to her interviews with the Joint Intelligence Committee investigation of 9/11, to make sure that she didn’t say anything the FBI didn’t like.  The chairs of both the 9/11 Commission and the Official Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 confirmed that government “minders” obstructed the investigation into 9/11 by intimidating witnesses (and see this).

Mueller’s FBI also obstructed the 9/11 investigation in many other ways. For example,  an FBI informant hosted and rented a room to two hijackers in 2000. Specifically, investigators for the Congressional Joint Inquiry discovered that an FBI informant had hosted and even rented a room to two hijackers in 2000 and that, when the Inquiry sought to interview the informant, the FBI refused outright, and then hid him in an unknown location.

Vladimir Putin: The Most Powerful Person In The World - Paul Craig Roberts


It must be wonderful being Vladimir Putin and being the most powerful person on earth. And not even have to say so yourself. The US Democratic Party is saying it for Putin along with the entirety of the Western presstitute media and the CIA and FBI also. The Russian media doesn’t have to brag about Putin’s power. Megyn Kelly, the Western presstitutes, and Western leaders are doing it for them: Putin is so powerful that he is able to place in office his choice for the President of the United States.

I mean, Wow! What power! Americans are simply out of the game. Americans, despite a massive intelligence budget and 16 separate intelligence services plus those of its NATO vassals, are no match whatsoever for Vladimir Putin.
 
I mean, really! What is the CIA for? What is the NSA for? What are the rest of them for? Americans would do better to close down these incompetent, but expensive, “intelligence services” and pay the money to Putin as a bribe not to select our president. Maybe the CIA should get down on its knees and beg Putin to stop electing the President of the United States. I mean, how humuiliating. I can hardly stand it. I thought we are the “world’s sole superpower, the uni-power, the exceptional, indispensable people.” It turns out that we are a nothing people, ruled by the President of Russia.

When the Democrats, CIA, and media decided to launch their PR campaign against Trump, they didn’t realize how inconsequential it would make the United States appear by putting American democracy into Putin’s pocket. What were they thinking? They weren’t. They were fixated on making sure Trump did not endanger the massive military/security complex budget by restoring normal relations with Russia.
 
There is no sign that American leadership in any area is actually capable of thought. Consider Wall Street and corporate leadership. To boost share prices Wall Street forced all corporations to desert their home country and move the production of goods and services sold to Americans offshore to where labor and regulatory costs were lower. The lower costs raised profits and share prices. Wall Street threatened resistant corporations with takeovers of the companies if they refused to move abroad in order to increase their profits.

Neither Wall Street nor corporate boards and CEOs were smart enough to understand that moving jobs offshore also moved US consumer incomes and purchasing power offshore. In other words, the financial and business leadership were too stupid to comprehend that without the incomes from high value-added, high productivity US jobs, the American consumer would not have the discretionary income to continue in his role as the economy’s driver.

The Federal Reserve caught on to Wall Street’s mistake. To rectify the mistake, the Fed expanded credit, allowing a buildup in consumer debt to keep the economy going on credit purchases. However, once consumer debt is high relative to income, the ability to buy more stuff departs. In other words, credit expansion is not a permanent fix for the lack of consumer income growth.

A country whose financial and business leadership is too stupid to understand that a population increasingly employed in part-time minimum wage jobs is not a big spending population is a country whose leadership has failed.

It is strictly impossible to boost profits by offshoring jobs without also offshoring US consumer incomes. Therefore, the profits from offshoring are temporary. Once enough jobs have been moved offshore that aggregate demand is stymied, the domestic market stagnates and then declines.

As I have demonstrated so many times for so many years, as has John Williams (shadowstats.com), the jobs reports from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics are nonsense. The jobs in the alleged recovery from June 2009 are largely low income domestic service jobs and the product of the theoretical birth/death model. The alleged recovery from the 2007-08 financial crisis is the first recovery in history in which the labor force participation rate declined. Labor force participation rates decline when the economy offers scant job opportunities, not when employment opportunities are rising.

What we know about US jobs is that the jobs are increasingly part-time minimum wage jobs. According to a presstitute news report that might or might not be true, there are only 12 counties in the entirety of the United States in which a person can rent a one-bedroom home on a minimum wage income. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/08/minimum-wage-affordable-housing-rentals-study

In response to this report, a professor at Virginia Tech suggested that the government offer increased rental assistance and boost programs such as the National Housing Trust Fund, which invests in affordable housing.
 
In other words, taxpayers are to pick up the costs to Americans of US corporations deserting the US labor force. Those Americans who still have middle class incomes will be taxed to cover the lost incomes that the offshoring corporations and Wall Street have snatched away from American workers who can no longer earn enough to pay for their own housing.

In other words, capitalism has reached the point in its descent that it cannot exist without public subsidies for the people dispossessed by capitalism.

On a number of occasions I have written about how many costs of production are imposed on third parties, such as the environment. A significant percentage of the profits of capitalist corporations comes from the political and legal ability of the corporations to impose their costs of production on third parties. In other words, capitalism makes money because it can impose its costs of production on the environment and on people who do not share in the profits. I have provided many examples of this, especially in the area of real estate development. The developer is able to shift a large part of his costs to others.

This cost shifting has now reached the level of inducing Armaggedon. There is an effort to impeach Trump and put the warmonger VP Pence in the presidency. As Trump campaigned on restoring normal relations with Russia, a defeat of the attempt to reduce tensions would reinforce the recent conclusion of the Russian military high command that Washington is planning a first strike nuclear attack on Russia.
 
This is the risk that the entire world faces due to the dependence of the power and profit of the US military/security complex on war and enemies.

In other words, there is only one remaining rationale for the existence of the United States of America — the interests of the military/security complex — and these interests require a powerful enemy whether real or orchestrated.

Former CIA official John Stockwell wrote: “It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms.” The hatred and distrust of Russia that the West is currently being force-fed reflects Stockwell’s revelation, as does the orchestrated hatred and distrust of Muslims that has supported Washington’s destruction in whole or part of seven countries and trillions of dollars in new US war debt.

Globalism, that is, labor arbitrage across national boundaries, and financialization, the diversion of consumers’ incomes into interest and fees to banks, have wrecked the US economy. The “opportunity society” has vanished. Children have poorer economic prospects than their parents. The offshoring of manufacturing and professional service jobs such as IT and software engineering has collapsed the growth of aggregate demand in the US. The Federal Reserve’s credit expansion was only a temporary reprieve.

Formerly prosperous areas are in ruins. States’ budgets and pension systems are failing. There is no payoff to a university education. Americans’ economic prospects have been erased by globalism. Getting ahead requires connections as it did in the aristocratic systems. The high concentration of income and wealth has negated democracy. The government is only accountable to the rich.
 
American political and business leadership not only destroyed the image of US sovereignty by placing American democracy in Putin’s pocket, but also destroyed the formerly vibrant American economy, once the envy of the world.

Where can Americans find leadership? Certainly not in the Democratic Party, nor in the Republican Party, nor in the media, nor in the corporate community. How then does the US compete with Russia and China, two countries with good leadership? Is war the only answer to the question?
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/06/12/vladimir-putin-powerful-person-world/

Make sure to watch the related info interview with Michael Scheuer, whose comments fly very close to the truth of what is happening. The people of the US are largely expendable to the plans of the intelligence community, lobby groups, and military/corporate interests. Terrorist attacks and economic failure can be allowed to happen in order to serve the interests of these groups. (Note: As an ex-CIA person Scheuer cannot be fully trusted since part of the CIA mission is manipulate the media, and CIA officers cannot talk about, or have to talk around, information they know that is classified).

Hillary Emails Reveal NATO Killed Gaddafi to Stop Libyan Creation of Gold-Backed Currency


Hillary’s emails truly are the gifts that keep on giving. While France led the proponents of the UN Security Council Resolution that would create a no-fly zone in Libya, it claimed that its primary concern was the protection of Libyan civilians (considering the current state of affairs alone, one must rethink the authenticity of this concern). As many “conspiracy theorists” will claim, one of the real reasons to go to Libya was Gaddafi’s planned gold dinar.

One of the 3,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve (where real news is sent to die quietly) has revealed evidence that NATO’s plot to overthrow Gaddafi was fueled by first their desire to quash the gold-backed African currency, and second the Libyan oil reserves.

The email in question was sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by her unofficial adviser Sydney Blumenthal titled “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold”.
From Foreign Policy Journal:
The email identifies French President Nicholas Sarkozy as leading the attack on Libya with five specific purposes in mind: to obtain Libyan oil, ensure French influence in the region, increase Sarkozy’s reputation domestically, assert French military power, and to prevent Gaddafi’s influence in what is considered “Francophone Africa.”
Most astounding is the lengthy section delineating the huge threat that Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves, estimated at “143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver,” posed to the French franc (CFA) circulating as a prime African currency.
And here is the section of the email proving that NATO had ulterior motives for destroying Libya (UPDATE: The link has since been killed, but here is the web cache):
This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).
(Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya. According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues: 
     a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,
     b. Increase French influence in North Africa, 
     c. Improve his internal political situation in France, 
     d. Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the     world, 
     e. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa)
Ergo as soon as French intel discovered Gaddafi’s dinar plans, they decided to spearhead the campaign against him- having accumulated enough good reasons to take over.

Sadly, Gaddafi had earlier warned Europe (in a “prophetic” phone conversations with Blair) that his fall would prompt the rise of Islamic extremism in the West. A warning that would go unheeded; what’s a few lives in France and Libya, if the larger goal lines the pockets of politicians and the elite so much better after all?
