Concealing The Truth About Syria - David Icke

How Bad is: The Media? - Joker Movie Review (Armoured Media)




The establishment media didn't want people to watch the film - perhaps because it shows that people are not intrinsically bad and that they turn bad (seek revenge) for reasons (when injustices of various sorts are piled up on them). It shows how our rich political leaders really don't care about the people on the bottom and that it is important to help people in society who really need help (the mentally ill).

Foreign Fighter 'Rat Line' In Reverse: Turkey Sends Syrian 'Rebels' To Libya


Bloomberg has confirmed on Friday the prior rumors that Turkey will be sending mercenaries to Libya — where it is propping up the UN-backed government in Tripoli (the GNA) — are true. "Turkey is preparing to deploy troops and naval forces to support the internationally-recognized Libyan government, joining a planned push by Ankara-backed Syrian rebels to defeat strongman Khalifa Haftar," reports Bloomberg

Though Ankara has yet to confirm or deny the new reports, Erdogan's Turkey has for years overseen a Libya-to-Turkey-to-Syria arms "rat line" which saw both heavy weaponry and jihadists fighters transported for the purpose of toppling Assad. But now with Erdogan's eyes set on defeating Benghazi-based General Khalifa Haftar, it appears this arms and jihadist rat line has conveniently been reversed.

This also as President Erdogan in a speech on Thursday presented plans to send Turkish national troops bolster Tripoli as well.

Possibly thousands from among the so-called Turkish Free Syrian Army (formerly the FSA), with most of its fighters currently attacking Syrian Kurds in the ongoing 'Operation Peace Spring', will now be sent into Libya.

There are reports suggesting Turkey is ready to pay $2,000 a month for each Syrian 'rebel' willing to go to Libya.

And akin to the current proxy war which has seen both the US, Kurds, and Sunni Islamists backed by Turkey wrangle over Syria's oil rich eastern region, Libya is heating up to be the latest 'oil and gas prize' — but with immensely more at stake. As Bloomberg notes:
In a deepening proxy war, Turkey aims to send its Navy to protect Tripoli, while its troops train and coordinate forces of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, according to a senior Turkish official. Turkey recently signed a critical maritime deal with oil-rich Libya that serves energy interests of both countries and aims to salvage billions of dollars of business contracts thrown into limbo by the conflict.
As we predicted earlier, Libya and the southern Mediterranean is on its way to becoming the next big Middle East conflict of 2020, also with Egypt and even Russia warning of further involvement to block Turkey's increasing role on the ground. 

And as the mainstream media finally stops ignoring the looming catastrophe for north Africa and the region (still in denial as to the fruits of US-NATO "liberated" Libya after Gaddafi was overthrown and killed), it must be remembered that in another ironic plot twist, the CIA trained the very FSA 'rebel' fighters now on their way to Libya

Remember when the CIA thought it was a good idea to train and fund jihadists in Syria to topple Assad? Via a 2015 military study:
The conflict in Syria has become a rallying point for jihadists from around the world. More than 20,000 foreign fighters are fighting or have fought in Syria, and most are part of jihadist groups, including Jubhat al Nusra (JAN) and Islamic State (IS). North Africa has provided a large portion of these foreign fighters, from countries as diverse as Morocco and Libya. Who are these North African fighters, and why are they going to Syria? What do they hope to accomplish there, and do they want to return to their home countries?
Considering the tens of thousands of foreign fighters which poured into Syria starting in 2011 and 2012 in the first place, many of them from Libya, perhaps many are now simply headed "home" — ready to further the proxy war chaos at Erdogan's bidding.

Rachel Maddow's Fake News Reckoning is FINALLY Here Even Leftists Slam MSNBC Over FAKE NEWS And Bias (Tim Pool)


Rachel Maddow's Fake News Reckoning is FINALLY Here Even Leftists Slam MSNBC Over FAKE NEWS And Bias. Progressives, leftists, democrats, you were taken for a ride by a swindler who just wanted to reap the benefits of the "orange man bad" narrative.

For years Rachel Maddow peddled absurd fake news about Russia and conveniently was no where in sight when the stories were ultimately proven false.

No one has been more critical of Maddow than journalist Glenn Greenwald who has never stopped in calling out the absurdity of her talking points.

But while conservatives and trump supporters completely expected her to be finally proven wrong (or to be proven wrong for the millionth time) many on the left are slamming her for pushing insane stories and also of propping up the DNC establishment.

As more progressives reap the benefits of a corrupt media system they start to sound like Donald Trump. Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks slammed the New York Times over a smear against him, Bernie voters decry the media blackout against him, and Andrew Yang even boycotted MSNBC for a while over their bias.

Its about time left and right stood hand in hand to call our the corrupt establishment in media and the democrats that seeks to exclude true populist voices, be it on the right or the left.

Syrian War Report – December 27, 2019: Army Liberates More Territory From Idlib Militants


On December 26, units of the Syrian Army liberated the villages of Khuwayn al-Sha’r, Judaydat Nawaf, Samkeh and Delim, as well as several nearby points in southern Idlib.
During the past few days, the speed of the Syrian Army advance in the region decreased in comparison of the first days of the operation launched on December 19. This is linked to the ongoing behind-the-scenes negotiations on the fate of Maarat al-Numan and bad weather. Taking into account reports that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies rejected a surrender proposal from Damascus, a new round of full-scale hostilities will likely take place soon.

This is really simple stuff that most people should have in their minds - especially if you are posting about economic matters. The stuff I've expanded upon is another level to this issue connected to trade laws impacting domestic markets (globalisation). This vid is just about the basic concept of supply and demand.

Michael Moore Predicts Trump 2020 Landslide, But His Betrayal PROVES They Learned NOTHING From 2016 (Tim Pool)


Michael Moore Predicts Trump 2020 Landslide, But His Betrayal PROVES They Learned NOTHING From 2016. In a recent interview Michael Moore told Matt Taibbi that if the election were held today Trump would win hands down. But he went on to say something shocking

He said white men who voted for Trump are bad people and that you should be afraid of them. He said you should cross the street if you see white men walking towards you.

Moore has betrayed the working class he once spoke for. In 2016 Moore said Trump supporters were not bad people they just needed someone to fight for them and Trump did.

Today those factories are returning. Detroit is clearing land for more factories and plants and the people who voted for Trump are proven right.

Moore was wrong about what would happen and instead of being there to support the former union democrats he smears them in the worst possible way.

The democrats have learned nothing from 2016 and Moore is the best example. As the economy booms and Trump voters are proven right the only thing we hear from Democrats is impeachment and orange man bad.



Moore's obsessed with the "evils of white men" but more and more people of colour are now warming to Trump and his America First message. Furthermore, many voters may not actually like Trump, but they voted for his economic message. The slurs against these Trump voters, who cast their ballots in good faith, are simply heinous slurs. Those slinging such accusations should be ashamed of themselves. These haters will get left behind when the general population moves on and gets to work repairing the US economy. This political divide is insane and is based on misinformation and propaganda pushed by the mainstream media (with the accusations of racism and misogyny being debunked online).

Nevertheless Trump still comes across as a corporate cronyist and his foreign policy moves are questionable.

Note: Trump may actually lose the 2020 election via establishment Voting Machine fraud. They didn't think it was necessary in 2016, but you can bet all stops will be taken out to make this happen in the upcoming election.

Trump’s EPA Goes to Bat for Bayer as Company Fights $25 Million Verdict in Roundup Cancer Case


President Donald Trump‘s Environmental Protection Agency—already accused of being “pesticide cheerleader”—threw its weight behind chemical company Bayer AG on Friday when the agency asked a federal appeals court to reverse a lower court’s ruling in favor of a man who said the company’s Roundup weedkiller was responsible for his cancer.

The case centers on Edwin Hardeman of California, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 after using the glyphosate-based pesticide, made by Monsanto, for years on his property. Bayer acquired Monsanto last year.

A federal jury in July ordered the company to pay Hardeman roughly $25 million in damages, a lower amount than the $80 million a federal judge had ordered months earlier.

The EPA maintains—to the outrage of environmental and public health groups—that glyphosate is not a carcinogen. The federal decision notwithstanding, California in 2017 agreed with the World Health Organization’s 2015 classification of glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen.” Trump’s EPA has pushed back on the state’s finding and said that product labels informing users of that cancer risk would “misbranding” and announced in August of this year that the agency would not approve of labels carrying that warning.

In an amicus brief filed Friday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, attorneys with the EPA and Justice Department said,
EPA approved the label for the pesticide/herbicide at issue here, Roundup, through a registration process that did not require a cancer warning. In fact, EPA has never required a labeling warning of a cancer risk posed by Roundup, and such a warning would be inconsistent with the agency’s scientific assessments of the carcinogenic potential of the product. Mr. Hardeman nevertheless sought damages under California common law, alleging that Monsanto had failed to adequately warn consumers of cancer risks posed by the active ingredient in Roundup. FIFRA therefore preempts Mr. Hardeman’s claims to the extent that they are based on the lack of a warning on Roundup’s labeling.
The filing from the federal government came the same week Bayer AG asked the appeals court to toss out the lower court’s ruling and defended Roundup’s safety.

Bayer is currently facing nearly 43,000 claims related to glyphosate-linked cancer in federal courts. An end to the company’s legal woes is unlikely to happen soon, according to Bloomberg Environment.
“The only vehicle that remotely approaches [an end to litigation] might be bankruptcy,” Loyola Law School professor Adam Zimmerman told the outlet last week. “Short of that, or some victories in court, I don’t see what kind of arrangement would absolve them of future liability.”

Sweden: The Wages Of Self-Loathing Is Civil War


The Danes have put extra resources into controlling the country’s links to Sweden because of bombs going off in Denmark due to people coming from Sweden.  The people from Sweden are Islamist criminals.  The Swedish government reacted to the Danish move by calling the Danes Nazis.  Swedish society has changed for the worse, and the Swedish people are aware of what they have lost.

All this is known, but what is interesting is that a former head of the Swedish truck-maker Scania, a Mr. Leif Ostling, has said Sweden is headed for civil war because of the problem of its violent migrants who have no inclination to integrate into Swedish society.  As a successful businessman, his views can’t be dismissed as being from some sort of antisocial loon living in his mother’s basement.

This raises the question: how do you have a civil war in this day and age?  Having a civil war is aspirational, but is it achievable?

The population of Sweden is now 10.1 million, of which 8% are of the Islamist persuasion.  The first question is, who owns the guns, and how many are there?

This site says civilians in Sweden are estimated to hold 2,296,000 guns, legally and illegally, of which about half are rifles.  There is a big hunting tradition in Sweden.  As of the year 2011, licenced firearms per 100 head of population was 6.5, and registered guns per 100 people was 18.9.  So the average gun-owner has three of them.

The Swedish government is thinking along the same lines.  They are currently trying to restrict weapons use by hunters.  Magazines and ammunition are to be registered with the police and be kept apart from the weapons.

The Islamist elements have most of the hand grenades in civilian possession, principally the M75 hand grenade from the former Yugoslavia.  Hand grenade attacks in Sweden peaked at 40 in 2016.  The Islamists also have more explosives on hand.  In the first nine months of 2019, there were 97 explosions in Sweden.  Even the BBC has noticed.  A litany of horrors could be written about Sweden, with all the murders and rapes and knifings and so on, but just consider that there is an explosion just about every second day.

The defense forces in Sweden have 139,180 firearms, and the police a further 38,000.

All in all, there are plenty of guns to go round to have a civil war with.  This won’t be a brutish affair conducted with knives and sticks.

But how will it play out? A t the moment, the Islamists attack police stations, control no-go areas and enclaves, and are not sufficiently discouraged from these activities by the police.  Public opinion is becoming less tolerant of the situation.  In terms of the politics, leftists won the last election, in September 2018, and the Social Democrats retained control of the government.  Their main opposition is the Sweden Democrats, whom the prime minister has called “an extremist and racist party.”  In a recent poll, the Social Democrats are at 22% support, and the Sweden Democrats are more popular at 24%.

A sign of the shift in public opinion is the fact that the leader of the Moderate Party, with 70 out of the 349 seats in the Swedish parliament, has apologized on Facebook to all those who had criticized the country’s immigration policies over the years.  The shifting winds of public opinion will encourage a crackdown on the Islamist enclaves, which in turn enrages the Islamists, and they are likely to respond with more attacks on the police and other public institutions.

How we get to civil war is that the government reaction to the escalating violence is likely to lag too far behind events and public opinion.  And then an officer in the armed forces will have his wife or daughter killed and lead his unit in taking over the parliament building.  Nobody in the police force will stop him, because the police have been taking the brunt of the Islamist violence for decades.

The next phase will be the reaction of the lefties running Germany, France, and the European Union.  The yellow vests have been protesting in France for over a year now.  Early on, they were surprised to see European Union decals on French armored personnel0carriers.  It seems that Macron and Merkel have conspired to create a French-German force to put down insurrections in Europe.  To get to Sweden, this force would have to pass through Denmark, and the Danes are likely to stop them.  If that fails, any armored column is unlikely to get across the Oresund Bridge that connects Denmark and Malmö in Sweden.  The Swedes make good antitank weapons.

Yes, you can have a civil war in this day and age.  With respect to Sweden, what can’t go on forever won’t.  If the state does not maintain its monopoly on violence, the state ceases to exist.

People can have a short memory for trials and tribulations when they have been civilized and comfortable for a while.  Across the border in Norway, the Norwegians had a bad time in WW2, with near starvation conditions.  So in the 1950s, they built grain storage to last them at least a year, in the manner of Joseph’s advice to the Egyptian pharaoh.  Two generations later, all the pain had been forgotten, and the grain silos were converted to student accommodations.  The pain of Sweden’s coming civil war won’t be forgotten as quickly.
https://www.zerohedge.com/political/sweden-wages-self-loathing-civil-war

But who in the massively cucked state of Sweden will have the balls to act despite the terror occurring within their country? It's like they would prefer to die and/or live in misery, and then as slaves in their own land, under the control of gangsters, than do anything.

The Fan Fantasy Dream Sequence - The Emergent Narrative of Disney Star Wars (David Stewart)




Disney Star Wars as bad fan fantasy: where the author(s) of The Force Wakens have inserted themselves into the story, with Rey doing everything one might want to as a Mary Sue, and then Luke (and other elements) in The Last Jedi rejecting all the fantasy ideas added in the first movie (a rebuke to the dream coming from Rian Johnson). They are having adventures, or inserting ideas, the authors (JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson) 'wanted to have' within the Star Wars world - including their political spin on revamped versions of the original films, all approved by Lucas Film boss Kathleen Kennedy.

David Stewart points out that Rey does everything as a fan might want to (without any help!) in The Force Awakens. ie. She fights Kylo Ren, who is a proxy for Darth Vader, but wins ! She rescues herself from a proxy of Tatooine without any help, and assists the original characters - essentially becoming dominant in the overall narrative. It all comes across as an over-the-top fan fantasy dream.

Turkish-based 'Syrian Government' Threatens Damascus With Military Action, War Report


Late on December 23, the Turkish-based “Syrian Interim Government” (an entity funded by Turkey in an attempt to legalize its actions in Syria) threatened the real Syrian government with a military action.
In a released statement, it claimed that forces that participated in Turkey’s Olive Branch and Euphrates Shield operations are now moving to Greater Idlib in order to support their counterparts in repelling an attack by “regime forces, Russia and Iranian militias”.



They want further Turkish support for the terrorists in Idlib. But it's unlikely the Russians will support any such moves (like they did with Turkey's intervention against Kurdish-US forces in the North East), so the Syrian Army offensive in this region, backed by Russia's Aerospace forces, will continue.

Ukrainian Military After 5 Years Of Warfare


Prior to the Maidan coup of 2014, Ukraine’s military existed in a political vacuum, suffering from benign neglect as well as corruption and other problems plaguing the Ukrainian state. Apart from downsizing, which meant the replacement of divisions by brigades, no modernization was conducted in the years of independence. While Ukraine did contribute to a variety of international missions, even sending a small contingent to Afghanistan and Iraq, these units came from various elite components of the armed forces. The rank-and-file mechanized and armored brigades simply languished under successive Ukrainian governments.
Kiev’s bid to mobilize its military resources after 2014 has enjoyed mixed fortunes. On the one hand, Ukraine did benefit from massive stockpiles of relatively modern weapons left over from the Soviet era. They gave a seemingly inexhaustible supply of weapons and spare parts to flesh out existing units and assemble new ones. In practice, however, neglect of the stored equipment and the limited capacities of Ukraine’s manufacturing and repair infrastructure meant that the losses incurred during the battles of 2014 and 2015 could only partly be replaced, and even then only with inferior equipment.  While Ukraine does have the ability to manufacture heavy and light armored vehicles, it cannot do so in large quantities or without continued supply of certain subsystems from Russia. Indigenously developed vehicles like the Oplot MBT or BTR-3 and -4 APCs seem mainly intended for export to earn badly needed hard currency. Domestic modifications of existing vehicles like the T-64BU Bulat MBT have been discontinued due to the combination of high costs and enduring problems. So as a result of five years of intermittent warfare Ukraine’s tank and APC fleets are smaller, older, more heterogeneous, and more worn out than they were at the beginning of conflict. The shortage of heavy equipment has forced Kiev to resort to organizing motorized brigades with hardly any armored vehicles at all.

Philip Giraldi: An End to the World as We Know It?


At the end of the nineteenth century, Lord Palmerston stated what he thought was obvious, that “England has no eternal friends, England has no perpetual enemies, England has only eternal and perpetual interests.” Palmerston was saying that national interests should drive the relationships with foreigners. A nation will have amicable relations most of the time with some countries and difficult relations with some others, but the bottom line should always be what is beneficial for one’s own country and people.
 
If Palmerston were alive today and observing the relationship of the United States of America with the rest of the world, he might well find Washington to be an exception to his rule. The U.S., to be sure, has been adept at turning adversaries into enemies and disappointing friends, and it is all done with a glib assurance that doing so will somehow bring democracy and freedom to all. Indeed, either neoliberal democracy promotion or the neoconservative version of the same have been seen as an overriding and compelling interest during the past twenty years even though the policies themselves have been disastrous and have only damaged the real interests of the American people.

The U.S. relationship with Israel is, for example, driven by a powerful and wealthy domestic lobby rather than by any common interests at all yet it is regularly falsely touted as being between two “close allies” and “best friends.” It has cost Americans hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies for the Jewish state and Israeli influence over U.S. policy in the Middle East region has led to catastrophic military interventions in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Mogadishu and Libya. Currently, Israel is agitating for U.S. action against the nonexistent Iranian “threat” while also unleashing its lobby in the United States to make illegal criticism of any of its war crimes, effectively curtailing freedom of speech and association for all Americans.
 
Far more dangerous is the continued excoriation of the Kremlin over the largely mythical Russiagate narrative. Congress has recently approved a bill that would give to Ukraine $300 million in supplementary military assistance to use against Russia. The money and authorization appear in the House of Representatives version of the national defense authorization act (NDAA) that passed last week.
 
The bill is a renewal of the controversial Ukraine Security Assistance Initiativethat Donald Trump allegedly manipulated to bring about an investigation of Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The new version expands on the former assistance package to include coastal defense cruise missiles and anti-ship missiles as offensive weapons that are acceptable for export to Kiev. It also authorizes an additional $50 million in military assistance on top of the $250 million congress had granted in last year’s bill, “of which $100 million would be available only for lethal assistance.”
 
Ukraine sought the money and arms to counter Russian naval dominance in the Black Sea through its base at Sevastopol in the Crimea. One year ago the Russian navy captured three Ukrainian warships and Kiev was unable to push back against Moscow because it lacked weapons designed to attack ships. Now it will have them and presumably it will use them. How Russia will react is unknowable.
 
Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, has been in Washington lobbying for the additional military assistance. He has had considerable success, particularly as there is bipartisan support in Congress for aid to Kiev and also because the Trump Departments of Defense and State as well as the National Security Council are all on board in countering the “Russian threat” in the Black Sea. President Trump signed the NDAA last week, which completed the process.
 
Far more ominously, Kuleba and his interlocutors in the administration and congress have been revisiting a proposal first surfaced under Bill Clinton, that Ukraine and Georgia should be admitted to the NATO alliance. Like the $300 million in military aid, there appears to be considerable bipartisan support for such a move. NATO already has a major presence on the Black Sea with Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey all members. Adding Ukraine and Georgia would completely isolate the Russian presence and Moscow would undoubtedly see it as an existential threat.
 
The NDAA also provides seed money to initiate the so-called Space Force, which President Trump inaugurated by describing it as “the world’s newest war-fighting domain. Amid grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital. We’re leading, but we’re not leading by enough, but very shortly we’ll be leading by a lot. The Space Force will help us deter aggression and control the ultimate high ground.”
 
If that isn’t bad enough, the new defense budget ominously also requires the Trump administration to impose sanctions “with respect to provision of certain vessels for the construction of certain Russian energy export pipelines.” Last week the House of Representatives and Senate approved specific sanctions relating to the companies and governments that are collaborating on the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that will cross the Baltic Sea from Vyborg to Greifswald to connect Germany with Russian natural gas. President Trump has signed off on the legislation.
 
The United States has opposed the project ever since it was first mooted, claiming that it will make Europe “hostage” to Russian energy, will enrich the Russian government, and will also empower Russian President Vladimir Putin to be more aggressive. Engineering companies that will be providing services such as pipe-laying will be targeted by Washington as the Trump administration tries to halt the completion of the $10.5 billion project.
 
Now that the NDAA has been signed, the Trump administration has 60 days to identify companies, individuals and even foreign governments that have in some way provided services or assistance to the pipeline project. Sanctions would block individuals from travel to the United States and would freeze bank accounts and other tangible property that would be identified by the U.S. Treasury. One company that will definitely be targeted for sanctions is the Switzerland-based Allseas, which has been contracted with by Russia’s Gazprom to build the offshore section of pipeline. It has suspended work on the project while it examines the implications of the sanctions.
 
Bear in mind that Nord Stream 2 is a peaceful commercial project between two countries that have friendly relations, making the threats implicit in the U.S. reaction more than somewhat inappropriate. Increased U.S. sanctions against Russia itself are also believed to be a possibility and there has even been some suggestion that the German government and its energy ministry might be sanctioned. This has predictably resulted in pushback from Germany, normally a country that is inclined to go along with any and all American initiatives. Last week German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas asked Congress not to meddle in European energy policy, saying “We think this is unacceptable, because it is ultimately a move to influence autonomous decisions that are made in Europe. European energy policy is decided in Europe, not in the U.S.”
 
German Bundestag member Andreas Nick warned that “It’s an issue of national sovereignty, and it is potentially a liability for trans-Atlantic relations.” That Trump is needlessly alienating important countries like Germany that are genuine allies, unlike Israel and Saudi Arabia, over an issue that is not an actual American interest is unfortunate. It makes one think that the wheels have definitely come off the cart in Washington.
 
The point is that Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence and Mike Esper (admittedly too many Mikes) wouldn’t know a national interest if it hit them in the face. Their politicization of policy to “win in 2020” promoting apocalyptic nonsense like war in space has also reinforced an existing tunnel vision on what Russia under Vladimir Putin is all about that is extremely dangerous. Admittedly, Team Trump throws out sanctions in all directions with reckless abandon, mostly aimed at Russia, Iran, North Korea and, the current favorite, Venezuela. No one is immune. But the escalation going from sanctions to arming the Kremlin’s enemies is both reckless and pointless. Russia will definitely strike back if it is attacked, make no mistake about that, and war could easily escalate with tragic consequences for all of us. That war is perhaps becoming thinkable is in itself deplorable, with Business Insider running a recent piece on surviving a nuclear attack. New homes in target America will likely soon come equipped with bomb shelters, just like in the 1950s.

Military Intervention In Libya And Turkey’s Grand Game In Eastern Mediterranean


During the past week, the situation significantly escalated in Libya, with Turkey expanding its military involvement in the conflict.
In late November, Turkey signed with the Government of National Accord (GNA), which controls only a small part of northern Libya, deals on security cooperation and maritime jurisdiction. By this move Ankara, the main backer of the GNA and pro-GNA militants, tried to legalize its economic zone claims in the eastern Mediterranean and thus legalize its controversial drilling activities in the region. At the same time, Turkey sees its involvement in the Libyan conflict as a tool of expansion of its own influence in the entire region.
The Turkish military already deployed Bayraktar TB2 combat drones to the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, and is reportedly preparing to deploy troops in Libya. Turkish intelligence and advisers already operate in the war-torn country. So, the security deal with the GNA is just a formal move to legalize and expand the military presence.

Democrats ALREADY Plan A SECOND Impeachment Of Trump??! They Must Truly Be DESPERATE. Nancy Pelosi has not yet transmitted the articles of impeachment against Trump nor appointed managers yet we are already hearing calls for a second impeachment.

This time pertaining to the Mueller report.

Democrats have no plays left. The economy is at record levels, Trump support is booming, and even left wing sites like Vox admit Democrats only option is to lie and claim things are bad.

Its no surprise then that Democrats are withholding the articles of impeachment as they are DOA once they reach the Senate. Republicans will not betray trump and Democrats only option is to pull every stop and absurd play.

Durham Wants Deep State Ringleader, John Brennan’s CIA Call Logs, Emails & Documents


The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss a New York Times report claiming that U.S. Attorney John Durham is examining the role former CIA director John Brennan played in the early stages of the Russian investigation.

Durham has requested Mr. Brennan’s call logs, emails and other documents from the CIA, and is said to be interested in Brennan’s views of the discredited and unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

Durham is also reportedly looking into conversations Brennan had with other top officials, including ex-FBI Director James Comey about the Steele dossier, as well as examining Brennan’s private statements contradicted his public comments.




The outlined of what's happened here seems accurate. The big issue is whether anything will happen. This is the Deep State and it would be unwise to think that Durham is strong enough, or independent enough, to take out CIA big wigs. The AG, Bill Barr, is a CIA guy.

It looks like they will flag the corruption and then find a way to not prosecute the crooks - or at least only take out a few small fish.

Retailpocalypse - A Record 9,300 Stores Closed Across US In 2019


A report found that more than 9,300 stores have closed or are closing across the United States in 2019, including locations operated by Payless, Gymboree, Fred’s, Walgreens, Family Dollar, and many more.

According to a report (pdf) by Coresight Research, which released its year-end report on the closing stores, 5,844 stores closed in 2018. In 2019, 9,302 stores were reported to have been shut down or were going to be shut down, which is a 59 percent increase over 2018.

Payless ShoeSource shut down 2,100 stores, Fred’s shut down 564, Ascena Retail shut down 781, Gymboree shut down 740, Sears closed down 210, and Charlotte Russe shut down 512. Twelve businesses had at least 200 locations shut down in 2019, the research organization said.

Gamestop, Gap, Foot Locker, Walgreens, Destination Maternity, GNC, Bed Bad & Beyond, Victoria’s Secret, CVS, Big Lots, Office Depot, Pier 1 Imports, Rent-a-Center, and Abercrombie & Fitch all saw dozens of their stores close, the report noted.

At the same time, 4,392 new stores opened across the United States, said Coresight.
Dollar General opened up nearly 1,000, Dollar Tree opened 348, Family Dollar opened 202, Aldi opened 159, and a number of other aforementioned brands that shuttered stores also opened new locations, according to the report.
“Despite a very favorable consumer spending environment, department stores have yet to catch a break,” analyst Christinia Boni said in a research report, according to CNN, which noted that online sales are poised to increase even further.
Last month, Toys “R” Us marked its return to the United States on Wednesday by opening its first store at a location in New Jersey. The firm filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and shut down 700 stores.

Democrats HAVE NOT IMPEACHED Trump, Democrats OWN Witness Undermines Pelosi's Strategy (Tim Pool)


Democrats HAVE NOT IMPEACHED Trump, Democrats OWN Witness Undermines Pelosi's Strategy. Thought Democrats in the house did vote to impeach Trump, according to Harvard professor and Democratic Witness Noah Feldman impeachment is not official until the articles of impeachment are transmitted to the Senate and Democrats appoint managers to prosecute the impeachment.

This is significant because Democrats plan to withhold the articles for an undetermined amount of time and for dubious reasons.

If Democrats refuse to file the impeachment than according to Feldman Trump can legally say and with a strong argument he has not actually been impeached.

One analogy would be a Prosecutor announcing they will charge you with a crime but then never filing with the court so nothing ends up happening. Until the papers are filed impeachment HAS NOT Happened.

Best Comment at You Tube:

Philo Kvetch
The mainstrem media hacks are reporting that Trump was "impeached." Trump was not impeached. Articles of impeachment were approved by the House but that does not constitute impeachment. If the Senate takes up the articles, holds a trial and then votes overwhelmingly to convict him, then and only then can it be said that President Trumps was impeached.

Journalists CAUGHT Celebrating Impeachment Then LIE About It, Media ENDORSED Democrats Impeachment (Tim Pool)


Journalists CAUGHT Celebrating Impeachment Then LIE About It, Media ENDORSED Democrats Impeachment. Major news outlets are walking in lock step with the Democrats and they aren't even trying to hide it anymore.

Following impeachment several journalists posted a photo of themselves together celebrating "impeachmas" which is a left wing anti trump meme.

Journalists are supposed to be impartial observers of the facts not pundits. if you want to be a pundit, no problem. I am a pundit and journalist meaning you know my bias and point of view. If you want to claim to be a reporter then you need to be fair and objective.

But these journalists were caught and embarrassed. In reality Washington Post had already endorsed impeachment as did several other news outlets.

How can we have a free society if our media openly and blatantly takes sides? How can we trust journalism if they all tell us they hate Donald Trump?

its no wonder Trump calls them Fake news. But what makes this funny is that even Nancy Pelosi had to shush democrats as they started to cheer for the impeachment vote. This photo is the same. Journalists started cheering and had to immediately shush up.

The truth is clear. They hate the president and are not objective.



Tim Pool pointing to the fact that the MSM is very biased and not at all acting as objective observers (although they might claim otherwise). The big problem is what these journos leave out when relaying facts to the public. It's a big problem. People are being sold a 'detailed' narrative that is missing vital context and detail(!). The informed public ends up being not as informed as they think they are. The solution is to look at critics of the media coverage, or alternative media covering the same issue, and to look at raw material to determine who is telling the truth.

Clint Eastwood Ahead of the Curve on the FBI by Curtis Ellis


Sharp-eyed viewers will catch the foundational message of “Richard Jewell” in the caption on a poster hanging on the wall in a defense attorney’s office: “The government scares me more than terrorists.”

From Spaghetti Westerns to Dirty Harry, Clint Eastwood has carved out an image as the righter of wrongs, settling scores and protecting the innocent. In Eastwood’s latest outing as a director, “Richard Jewell,” he’s protecting us from our protectors.

Twenty years before Carter Page there was Richard Jewell.

Jewell’s all-too-true story serves as a cautionary tale about the FBI’s casual abuse of power, and also as a not so esoteric commentary on the “Crossfire Hurricane” debacle.

Paul Walter Hauser plays Jewell, the security guard originally lauded as a hero for discovering pipe bombs that killed two and injured over 100 others in Atlanta’s Centennial Park during the 1996 Olympics.

Within three days, the FBI had fingered Jewell as its prime suspect. The real culprit was captured six years and several bombings later.

Sam Rockwell plays G. Watson Bryant, Jewell’s lawyer and long-time friend. Jon Hamm plays the imperious FBI agent who led the investigation.

There are those who would believe a few bad apples were responsible for the monstrous abuses we see in the Crossfire Hurricane investigation of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and presidency.

But watching “Richard Jewell” makes one wonder if there’s not a manual of sleazy practices passed down inside the bureau since the days of J. Edgar Hoover. We see how the FBI played the same dirty tricks on Jewell that it used on Carter Page, Michael Flynn, and the rest.

The bureau chose Jewell as its target based on the flimsiest of evidence: A profiler decided Jewell was a law enforcement wannabe who planted the bomb so he could get attention for having discovered it—the “profile” of a lone bomber. Confirmation bias took over, and investigators distorted everything to fit their pre-ordained conclusion.

The parallels between Jewell, Page, and the others caught up in the Trump investigation don’t end there.

Just as the FBI did with Flynn in January 2017, agents used a false pretext when they interviewed Jewell.

They told Flynn he didn’t need a lawyer for what was a routine interview when in fact they were gathering evidence for their Crossfire Hurricane con job.

They told Jewell they wanted him to be in a training video about bomb detection they were making. “For the sake of authenticity,” they then asked him to sign away his constitutional rights to have a lawyer present “since this is how we’d actually do it with a real suspect.”

A Justice Department internal investigation later said the deception was ”a major error in judgment” but concluded there was “no intentional violation of Mr. Jewell’s civil rights and no criminal misconduct” by the FBI agents. No intent, no bias, no criminal wrongdoing. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

The worst the agents faced was a temporary suspension or letter of reprimand. As Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) said, it’s “easier to divorce your spouse” than to get fired from the FBI.

Agents wired Jewell’s friends and sent them in to record “friendly” conversations with their target. They also ignored exculpatory evidence, just as Inspector General Michael Horowitz found they did with Carter Page.

They conducted highly visible searches of his home while the media watched, akin to the televised raid of Roger Stone’s home.

The media is Eastwood’s other villain. As Jewell’s lawyer says in the film, the two most powerful forces in America, the government and the media, targeted his client.

We know James Comey and others used leaks and a complicit media to foist the Russia hoax on the public and whip Washington into a frenzy. Similarly, agents leaked Jewell’s name to a media eager to perpetuate the myth of the FBI’s infallibility.

Non-spoiler alert: A controversy over the film’s depiction of a reporter using sex to get information from the FBI agent does not detract from the larger point.

We hear Tom Brokaw declare authoritatively: “The speculation is that the FBI is close to making the case. They probably have enough to arrest him right now, probably enough to prosecute him, but you always want to have enough to convict him as well.”

The Bryant Gumbel stand-in in a reenacted “Today Show” interview asks why would the FBI investigate Jewell if he weren’t guilty of something.

In contrast, we hear Nadia, the Russian-born assistant to Jewell’s attorney, say, “Where I come from if the government says someone is guilty you know they are innocent.”

The unholy alliance between the FBI and the media predates even Richard Jewell—it is straight out of the J. Edgar Hoover playbook.

For decades, Hoover’s FBI harassed and gathered dossiers on Martin Luther King, civil rights activists, antiwar leaders, and others. He regularly would feed dirt on them to friendly reporters. Civil libertarians warned that the FBI’s secret machinations threatened our democracy.

In the 1970s, the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee discovered intelligence agencies and the FBI kept files on thousands of Americans and peddled disinformation to the news media.

Such abuses led Congress to establish Senate and House Intelligence Oversight committees—and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court—to protect us from our protectors. For all the good they’ve done.

It shows profound ignorance, misunderstanding, or disregard for history for Democrats to invoke the name of Martin Luther King as they’ve done in their recent impeachment putsch.

Security operatives of our government used the same tactics against King—surveillance, leaks, guilt by association—they used against the Trump campaign and his presidency.

Democrats and anyone else needing a refresher course on history and abuse of government power need to see “Richard Jewell.”

Early in the film, we see Jewell abusing his authority as a campus security guard just as the FBI would do later. The message is clear: Power corrupts.

The temptation to abuse power dwells in everyone’s heart. Ask Stanley Milgram.

Sharp-eyed viewers will catch the foundational message of Clint Eastwood’s film in the caption on a poster hanging on the wall behind Jewell’s attorney in his law office: “The government scares me more than terrorists.”
