Putin Targeted For Assassination-Will This Mean WW III Or Russian Civil War?

vladimir putin

Many in the independent media are proclaiming that a massive coup, which includes security personnel, top military leaders and top Russian businessmen, led by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu is intent on removing Putin and restoring relations with the West. I wish these reports were accurate, but the recent course of actions strongly suggest that the opposite is in fact true.

Will a Russian Coup Lead to a Russia Civil War?

According to ZN,UA, a Ukrainian publication, former Russian presidential adviser Andrey Illarionov has stated Vladimir Putin will be removed from power within the next few days and the forces of a “big blood” are poised to take over Russia. The forces of big blood are a group of hardliners who will undoubtedly push the world to the brink of World War III and beyond when they assume full power. As I write these words, there are reports that Russian government and key business figures are being taken to underground facilities. Does this mean that World War III is days away? It could, but not necessarily. This could be nothing more than blustering and posturing on the part of the Russians. However, blustering is not normally accompanied by a coup and that is what we are witnessing in Russia.

Removing the Popular Putin Is Not a Simple Task

There are complications in carrying out the coup. Putin is enormously popular among the Russian people. Subsequently, a bigger picture looms; Will the Russian people support such a coup? More importantly, many of those who are reporting on this issue are overlooking this fact as well as the popularity that Putin enjoys in some circles of the Russian intelligence community as well as in certain parts of the military. Putin’s removal from power is a prescription for civil war because of his popularity. And because of the role that Ukraine and some of the former outlying Soviet states play in the formation of the emerging Eurasian Union, a Russian civil war would spill over to Asia and Europe and ultimately lead to World War III. If a country was ever in need of a false flag, the Russian hardliners could use one right now. This would go a long way towards securing the popular support that this coup will ultimately require. One piece of speculation has Putin being assassinated and forces connected to Western interests are implicated. Thus, the world would have its Archduke Francis Ferdinand moment.

The Facts Don’t Support a Peaceful Resolution

Putin disappears for 10 days, he returns, appearing to have gained 20 pounds in water weight, NOT looking like himself and has done nothing but engage in a series of military drills designed to antagonize the West. In actuality, the military antagonism of the West was the byproduct of whoever was running Russia during the Putin disappearance.

The speculation that Russian Defense Minister, Sergey Shoygu, has rescued Russia from Putin’s warlike tendencies and plans to restore relations with the West when the coup is complete is not supported by the recent facts.

Since Putin Disappeared from March 5th-March 15th Russia Has Been In War Mode

Since when does a Defense Minister increase war preparedness drills in preparation for negotiating peace with his enemies? The notion that Russia is moving toward a position of negotiation, conciliation and peace is laughable given the following chain of events.

The following is a small sample size of the Russian war preparations which transpired during Putin’s disappearance.

The Russian Northern Fleet was brought to full combat alert at 8:00 a.m. Moscow time (05:00 GMT), on March 16, 2015. The alert included 38,000 military personnel, 3,360 pieces of equipment, 41 ships, 15 submarines, and a total of 110 airplanes and helicopters. The exercises, which will be run on land, sea and air and will subsequently conclude in five days. The mission is to provide support for existing Russian military forces in the Arctic.

Various units of Russia’s signals troops began a massive large-scale communications field exercises in nine regions of the Eastern Military District. Russian public relations representatives stated, “The drills envision the use of advanced relay broadcast stations, mobile video-conferencing systems, modern radio stations and satellite communications that were put in service with the Eastern Military District in 2014-2015.” The purpose of this drill would be to coordinate aircraft, mobile forces and troops movements.

On March 12, Eastern Military District press head Col. Alexander Gordeyev said that a military exercise involving anti-air defense troops started in the region. Why would Russia be simultaneously practicing offense and defensive maneuvers in the same region? Smart money says that Russia plans to attack Lithuania and it is clear from these Eastern Region drills, Russia expects NATO to retaliate by air. THESE ARE OMINOUS SIGNS THAT THE RUSSIANS BELIEVE THAT WW III IS INEVITABLE!

In alliance reminiscent of World War I, “Air Force officials from Russia and Serbia agreed at a planning conference in the Russian Defense Ministry on March 12 to carry out joint tactical drills in September this year,” stated spokesman Col. Igor Klimov. Klimov further added that both Serbian and Russian pilots will work to intercept air targets while Mi-8 military transport and combat helicopters will work on tactical landings, covering ground units from the air while firing missiles at ground targets at the site.

In the never-ending series of military exercises with live firing drills, this past Wednesday, March 11, in Russia’s southern and western regions and in the Far East, the Defense Ministry held a drill in which 30 sorties with live firing of missiles and rockets were held in the Stavropol territory.  

Russian army artillery personnel in the Southern Military District began scheduled drills using new Hosta and Tornado-G systems. Over 8,000 Russian army artillery personnel began exercises in Crimea, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Armenia as well as other areas on Thursday, March 12th.

“NATO jets scrambled out of Lithuania to intercept 11 Russian warplanes flying with their transponders veered off over the Baltic Sea”. 

According to a powerful and influential member of the Russian Oligarchy, the owner of the ‘Alpha Bank’s‘ Oleg Sysoyev, has stated that pro-war elements are gaining power at the Kremlin.

A tweet, listed below, indicates that Shoigu launched a surprise inspection of key Russian troops and equipment with regard to the war readiness of nearly 80,000 Russian troops.

SHOIGU: NORTHERN FLEET SURPRISE CHECK INVOLVES SOME 76,000 SERVICEMEN, OVER 10,000 TANKS AND ARMORED VEHICLES — IFX

Russian “Alpha Bank’s” Oleg Sysoyev says war faction gains power in Kremlin

On March 14th, Venezuela and tens of thousands of Russian troops staged a military exercise to counter an alleged U.S. threat, deploying soldiers and partisans across the country to march, man shoulder-fired missiles and defend an oil refinery from a simulated attack.

DO THE ABOVE RUSSIAN MILITARY ACTIONS LOOK LIKE RUSSIA PLANS TO NORMALIZE RELATIONS WITH THE WEST? 

Conclusion

With all due respect, anyone who thinks that Putin has been deposed by more moderate and peaceful forces in Russia are mistaken. Whether Putin has been deposed by war hawks or this coup will result in a bloody civil war, is irrelevant. Unless there is a dramatic diplomatic breakthrough, the world is on a clear path to World War III.

Ukraine Sets Up War Stage Between Russia And The United States

Ukraine Protester Killed

Ukraine has given two steps in opposite directions. On one hand, it has approved a so-called new status that allegedly gives autonomy to the Easter regions of Lughansk and Donetsk. On the other hand, it has approved the deployment of both American and Polish militaries on its soil for ‘training purposes’.

The first step seems to be one in the right direction and a direct result of the Minsk negotiations led by Russia and five other European nations. The second step is a direct threat to Russia because American, Polish and quite possibly NATO operatives will be very near the Russian border.

The government led by Vladimir Putin has been clear about Ukraine allowing foreign troops, particularly American troops on its soil. Putin has said his government will not sit and watch should American military step on Ukrainian soil. He has said such a move is direct threat to the Kremlin and that Russia will not hesitate to respond.

Despite such a clear statement, the Verkhovna Rada, or Ukrainian Parliament has approved the deployment of US troops in the country to participate in military exercises.

The Ukrainian Army plans to hold three joint exercises involving US troops and two other ones with Polish troops this year.

According to the Ukrainian constitution, Parliament must authorize in each case the entry of foreign troops in the country, which is what the Rada has done.

Both the approval of foreign troops and the new status for the autonomous regions in the East came while Russia celebrates the first anniversary of the return of Crimea to Russian territory. It was a year ago that Crimeans voted to become part of Russia given the deterioration of affairs in Ukraine.

Ukraine has done for the Eastern provinces what it refused to do for Crimea, as the Verkhovna Rada approved a law of self-government for areas under rebel control in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lughansk, which was a request made during the peace meetings in Minsk.

As a condition for receiving such autonomy for a period of only three years, the eastern provinces are asked to hold local elections under Ukrainian law and international democratic standards under the presence of observers from other countries.

The eastern provinces and Russia have rejected the proposal from Kiev because it violates conditions of the peace agreements signed last February 12 which argues that Kiev cannot directly link the granting of autonomy to the elections.

War Is Popular Because It’s Profitable

According to the latest report from the Research Institute for International Peace in Stockholm, the United States continues to be the largest exporter of arms.

According to the latest report from the Research Institute for International Peace in Stockholm, the United States continues to be the largest exporter of arms.

China is already the third largest arms exporter in the world. Although its share of the global total is only 5%, well below the 58% owned by the United States and Russia, that supply the most arms to international markets.

In the last five years, arms sales by China have grown 143% over the previous five years, according to the report released Monday by the Research Institute for International Peace in Stockholm.

Worldwide, the volume of the arms trade grew by 16% in the period between 2010 and 2014 compared to 2005-2009. The increased flow headed towards Asia, which garnered 48% of imports. Meanwhile, 22% went to the Middle East and about 10% to the Americas. Around 36% of all sales ended up in Europe.

United States remains as the largest exporter of conventional weapons, with 31% of the total after recording an increase in turnover of 23% in the last five years.

The US is the country with the most diversified portfolio, which includes 94 different client states. Of that total, South Korea seems to be the largest buyer with 9%.

Russia, America’s main rival in arms sales also increased its exports in 37% between 2010 and 2014. Russia is responsible for 27% of total exports, with India as its main buyer.

After China, the fourth and fifth on the list in global arms suppliers correspond to Germany and France, with 5% each. The UK has been left out of the list of the top five exporters.

Three countries whose borders are shared with India -Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma- account for 68% of Chinese-made weapons.

Pakistan is by far the best customer of the People’s Republic. The country to which Chinese diplomats like to describe as a “friend under any circumstances” purchases 41% of the weapons exports made by the Asian giant.

In its consolidation as a global supplier of weaponry, China sells arms to 38 countries of which 18 are African. For example, it has supplied three frigates to Algeria and drones to Nigeria. ANother important Chinese client is Venezuela, which has bought armored vehicles and aircraft for training and transport.

Despite its jump from nineth to third in the world, China asserts that “it is always prudent and responsible in its arms exports.” Beijing, according to a spokesman Hong Lei, “aims to improving the self-defense capability of the recipient country, not to harm peace and global or regional stability and definitely not to interference in the internal affairs of other countries “

Indeed, China, the country with the second largest military budget in the world, is in the process of modernizing and professionalizing its armed forces. Its military spending has increased more than 10% in the last five years.

In a sign of progress in its the defense industry, China has become less dependent on imports. If it was the largest buyer in the world in 2005-2009, China has now ceded that place to its regional military rival, India.

Between 2010 and 2014 China’s arms purchases fell 42% over the previous five years. Its main supplier was Russia, which provided 61% of all weapons bought by Beijing. France used to be responsible for 16%, and Ukraine for 13% of the total.

China, which has emphasized the modernization of its sea and air military forces, has traditionally suffered problems to produce its own engines for military aircraft. In the past five years, Beijing continued to import a large number of Russian and Ukrainian engines for combat aircraft, transport and training vehicles and warships.

According to the Research Institute for International Peace in Stockholm “most countries provide at least some information about their military expenditure, but this may often lack detail or omit significant items of extra-budgetary or off-budget expenditure,” declared the organization. “World military expenditure in 2013 totaled $1747 billion, around 2.4 per cent of world GDP.”

In its military expenditure database, the Swedish institution confirms that military expeditures have increased across the spectrum. All of the 172 nations that the organization follows on a yearly basis have spent more dollars in arms purchases since 1988. Nations have gone from spending around $1.5 billion to $1.6 billion in 2011.

In addition to being the country that exports more weapons, the United States is also the nation that spends the most money on military equipment; 37% of all military expenditures. China follows at a distant second with 11%.

Putin’s Return Coincides With Greatly Increased Russian War Preparations

Legvold_ManagingtheNewColdWar

Putin has come out of captivity, self-imposed, or otherwise, swinging for the fences. In an unprecedented series of moves, Putin is more aggressive, more warlike and more daring than any time in his Presidency. His military exercises which coincided with his return to the limelight, are unprecedented in the post cold war era.

Putin laughed off his 10 missing days as “Life would be boring without rumors”. His 10 day disappearing act has been attributed to his being bedside with his mistress as she gave birth to his love child and to his self-imposed quarantine for a religious holiday.  His 10 day absence is no laughing matter as Putin missed two major meetings with heads of state in a part of the world that is one provocative incident away from World War III. And I will overlook, for the time being, the persistent claims which state that the photos being released to the media are over a year old. Whether Putin is still truly in charge of his own domain, or he has become the puppet of more sinister and psychopathic forces than he and these sinister behind-the-scenes forces needed 10 days to get their more aggressive points across to Putin, is wholly irrelevant to the fate of the world. The fact remains that Russian forces are engaging in a series of snap exercises which just coincidentally coincides with Putin’s reappearance.

Some say that to suggest that the manner of Putin’s reappearance is strongly suggestive of Russia moving the world toward World War III is “unfounded paranoia”.  In this case, the facts speak for themselves.

The Russian Northern Fleet Prepares for War

northern-fleet-300x160The Russian Northern Fleet was brought to full combat alert at 8:00 a.m. Moscow time (05:00 GMT), on March 16, 2015. The alert included 38,000 military personnel, 3,360 pieces of equipment, 41 ships, 15 submarines, and a total of 110 airplanes and helicopters. The exercises, which will be run on land, sea and air and will subsequently conclude in five days. The mission is to provide support for existing Russian military forces in the Arctic.

On March 9th, I reported that the Russians were taking an offensive posture with regard to its forces stationed at the North Pole as they were positioning to be able to launch attacks in several directions including Europe and North America. Subsequently, we are seeing Russian support forces, as evidenced by the Northern Fleet snap military exercises, standing at the ready to support a Russian incursion.

These events signal a clear intention as to the future direction with regard to Russian military intentions. This exercise is highly aggressive and antagonistic toward the West. More disturbingly, the combat mobilization of the Northern Fleet is not being conducted in isolation. Russia is preparing for World War III on a number fronts and from a number of strategic positions.

Russian Military Communications Exercises Over Nine Regions

Various units of Russia’s signals troops began a massive large-scale communications field exercises in nine regions of the Eastern Military District.

Anti-Air Defense Drills In the Eastern Region

On March 12, Eastern Military District press head Col. Alexander Gordeyev said that a military exercise involving anti-air defense troops started in the region. Why would Russia be simultaneously practicing offense and defensive maneuvers in the same region? Smart money says that Russia plans to attack Lithuania and it is clear from these Eastern Region drills, Russia expects NATO to retaliate by air.

Lithuania is Moscow’s single biggest obstacle in developing a military type of land bridge between Kaliningrad and the rest of Russia. An attack upon Lithuania will provide Russia with clear access to the Baltic Sea.

Lithuania’s paranoia is further on display as in January, Lithuania produced a document which advised civilians how to best respond to a Russian invasion and possible occupation.

Lithuania is not alone in their “unfounded paranoia” with regard to the commencement of World War III. Last week, Norway commenced its “Joint Viking” drills, the largest set of military drills in decades. The drills took place in the far northern Finnmark region near the Russian border. The exercises consisted of 5,000 military personnel and the exercises are expected to continue until March 18.

Russia and Serbia Joint Military Exercises

In alliance reminiscent of World War I, “Air Force officials from Russia and Serbia agreed at a planning conference in the Russian Defense Ministry on March 12 to carry out joint tactical drills in September this year,” stated spokesman Col. Igor Klimov. Klimov further added that both Serbian and Russian pilots will work to intercept air targets while Mi-8 military transport and combat helicopters will work on tactical landings, covering ground units from the air while firing missiles at ground targets at the site.

This joint exercise speaks to an offensive action in which Serbia and Russia will partake. Does one have to wonder why Eastern Europe is mobilizing and drilling?

Live Fire Drills In Starvopol

In the never-ending series of military exercises with live firing drills, this past Wednesday, March 11, in Russia’s southern and western regions and in the Far East, the Defense Ministry held a drill in which 30 sorties with live firing of missiles and rockets were held in the Starvopol territory.

Drills In the Southern Military District

Russian army artillery personnel in the Southern Military District began scheduled drills using new Hosta and Tornado-G systems. Over 8,000 Russian army artillery personnel began exercises in Crimea, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Armenia as well as other areas on Thursday, March 12th.

Conclusion

There are more drills, but the reader should get the idea. All of these military exercises have taken place during Putin’s absence or on the first day of his return. Did somebody have a stern talk with Vladamir while he was gone? At the end of the day, it does not matter. Russia has committed its military forces to a very clear course of action and World War III only appears to be unavoidable from the Russian perspective.

The Pieces For America’s Imminent Red Dawn Are In Place

russia-usa-flags_bomb_3

On Thursday night, airing on Randy Yarbrough’s radio show on 1360AM out of Johnstown, Colorado, Dr. Walker Todd called in into the show and offered a stunning prediction. Dr. Todd stated that the U.S. economy has about “60-90 days of life left in it as the dollar is on the verge of collapse”.

The dire prediction from only one man would not ordinarily carry much weight, however, Dr. Todd was an economic consultant with 20 years of experience at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Federal Reseve Bank of Cleveland. He is also a member of the Cato Institute‘s new Center for Monetary Financial Alternatives as one of its Adjunct Scholars. Given his background, his expressed opinions should be given very serious consideration.

If Dr. Todd’s prediction is accurate, this fits in with what other sources are saying is coming in the very near future. It has always been my position that a false flag event would be used as a pretext to invoke martial law. Martial law would then be used as the excuse to begin gun confiscation. Gun confiscation will be used to disarm American citizens prior to subjugating the country by using foreign mercenaries in what could be labeled as a “Red Dawn” scenario.

All News Pipeline

Stefan Stanford from All News Pipeline has been quick to point out that the movie miniseries, Amerika, portrays the Soviet Union conducting a bloodless takeover of our country. This was a takeover made easy by the apathy of Americans to defend freedom as clearly stated by the Soviet leader in the movie: It (the coup) worked because you lost your country before we ever got here”.  The more things change, the more they say the same.

It is highly recommended that all Americans watch this movie about the country we would could soon be “fundamentally transformed” into, Amerika. It is chilling to watch the parallels of this 1987 miniseries and what is taking place now with ever increasing rapidity.

Through a series of Executive Orders, President Obama has rendered Congress to be an impotent body. Here, in the movie, Amerika, the President of Amerika, enacts the final solution against Congressional interference against the communist takeover of our country.

Senator Lindsay Graham is now advocating for a military dictatorship on the eve of some very ominous events which lie in our immediate future.

Red Dawn

Let’s dust off some old evidence from last year when a rash of UN vehicles were being spotted as they were being transported to places unknown inside the United States. In retrospect, it is clear that these vehicles are being stored for future use.

Sightings of these vehicles have been widely reported beginning last Spring. And this has led some to suspect that an occupation force is being mobilized.

Sightings of these vehicles have been widely reported beginning last Spring. And this has led some to suspect that an occupation force is being mobilized.

Given what is to be revealed in the rest of the article, these UN vehicles were being transported to staging areas in preparation for a later roll out, such as the implementation of a real Red Dawn scenario.

What Lies Ahead?

As I have written multiple times, America will be taken down according to the following scenario: (1) A false flag, more than likely a scenario resulting in economic collapse and the destruction of the dollar. This is in line with what Dr. Todd stated on the radio on March 12, 2015; (2) The implementation of martial law, perhaps involving the use of foreign troops; and (3) All out conflict.

There are clear economic, political and military reasons why the Russians would want to occupy Alaska. My interest in this topic surfaced quite serendipitously as a couple of listeners to my radio program sent me information on the Agenda 21 invasion of small Alaska communities, and oh, by the way, they also reported that they were seeing Russian troops in their respective communities. The adjacent maps reveals the towns where Russian troops are, or there is a large contingency of Russian civilians in Alaska.

alaska-map-2

The sighting of Russian troops in small Alaskan towns such Ketchikan, Alaska, got my undivided attention. Ketchikan is the southeastern most city in Alaska. With an estimated population of 8,050. Ketchikan is the fifth-most populous city in the state. Another area where there are civilian sightings of Russian troops is in Sitka, Alaska. The City of Sitka, formerly, New Archangel under Russian rule, is located on Baranof Island and the southern half of Chichagof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, one military veteran reports seeing Russian submarines, on a frequent basis, just off the coast. Further, there are civilian reports of Russian vehicles and troops moving through Alaska, north of Anchorage. Because of the multiplicity of the reports, these are indeed verifiable, reported accounts of Russian troops on American soil.

The presence of Russian troops on American soil is very troublesome. America does not need to rely on the anecdotal accounts of Alaskan civilians to be concerned about the presence of Russian troops on American soil. Russian commandos are also “training” at Fort Carson, in Colorado Springs.

There are additional reports of Russians in and around the Alaskan town of Wasilla.

The sight of much Russian activity.

I have learned, from multiple sources that the Russians have moved at least one, and probably two divisions of troops into the Eastern Arctic, just outside of Alaska. This dovetails with other Russian military/political actions in recent times as we know that the Russians have established a very large presence in the Arctic, just above Alaska.

Russian troops are amassing just East of Alaska and to the North in the Southern Arctic.

Russian troops are amassing just East of Alaska and to the North in the Southern Arctic.

I have also learned that Russians, in large numbers have crossed over into Alaska. Many are in civilian clothes and many are being housed in several closed Alaskan military bases and abandoned motels. I am told that Russian troops are being maintained in the following two closed Alaskan bases.

Site Name City Type NPL Status BRAC Round Closure Agency
Adak Naval Air Station Adak NPL/BRAC Final 4 US Navy
USARMY Fort Greely Fort Greely BRAC  Pending 4 US Army

Further, it is not a secret that some of these forces have worked with DHS on abduction exercises in which hypothetical members of the Independent Media and uncooperative and influential politicians (i.e. just like the movie Amerika) are snatched by troops offloaded from low-flying helicopters in the middle of the night. These drills have been coordinated in multiple locations which leads one to believe that when this scenario is acted upon, these abductions will take place on the same night.

More Supporting Documentation

I have repeatedly stressed the importance of seven Islands that Obama gave away to Russia. Please note their location. Two of the Islands are ideal for launching an invasion of Alaska. The other five Islands are serving to block access to the American navy in and around the Arctic interests of Russia.

Obama’s giveaway of seven oil-rich and strategically located Islands to Russia should concern all Americans. Giving away these islands constitutes a blatant act of treason.

Obama’s giveaway of seven oil-rich and strategically located Islands to Russia should concern all Americans. Giving away these islands constitutes a blatant act of treason.

Multiple reports from Alaskan fisherman have observed that Russian troops are occupying US/Alaska’s Wrangell Island in the Arctic which was one of the seven Islands given to Russia by Obama.

Interestingly, Google posted the following pictures and labeled them as “Russian military troops sighted in Alaska”

 russian-troops-landing-air-120_si_

 russian-troops-in-snow

Maybe someone should be asking Google where they got these photos of what Google labels “Russian troops in Alaska”. If one does not believe that Obama is capable of facilitating this kind of treason, perhaps Obama would care to explain what happened when  In March of 2012, with a microphone left on. Obama made an unguarded comment to Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev to be “more lenient on nuclear issues” because he could be more flexible “after the November election (2012)”. Does more flexible mean killing the Keystone Pipeline prior to giving away seven rich Alaskan Islands to the Russians? Obama did indeed do that. Does more flexible mean letting the Russians train in Colorado Springs and in Alaska? Obama did indeed do that too. Does being more flexible mean compromising our defense of Alaska? This is absolutely the case, as Alaska is being prepared to be conquered.

There is yet another rumor that is persistently being reported and it is that Putin has disappeared. This led to an Internet rumor, yesterday, that Putin was dead. The more credible sources states that Putin has, instead, retired to his nuclear bunker in the Ural Mountains at Yamanatu. What we do not know is if Putin is carrying out a drill, or is this the real thing? Either way, his retreat to his bunker should signal to the rest of us, his true intent.

Former Soviet Union Defectors Have Warned US

Anatoliy Golitsyn is a high-ranking KGB defector who fled to the United States in order to warn Americans about the secret Russian plan to attack the United States. Golitsyn is generally considered to be among the first and most revealing on the subject of the secret Russian plans to attack. Having authored the The Perestroika Deception in which Golitsyn wrote about the deceitful intent behind the Leninist strategy in which the present-day Communists are actively pursuing as they fake American style democratization efforts in Russia. According to Golitsyn, the short-term strategic objective of the Russians is to achieve a technological convergence with the West solely on Russian terms and mostly through a series of one-sided disarmament agreements. According to Golitsyn, after the United States military is eliminated as a strategic threat to Russia, the long-range strategic Russian plan is to pursue Lenin’s goal of replacing nation states with collectivist models of regional governments as a stepping stone to global governance. In order to achieve their final goal, Golitsyn states that Russia, after lulling America to sleep, will join with China in order to attack the United States from both the outside and inside as he detailed that the Soviets and the Chinese will be officially reconciled and enact a “scissors strategy” in which China will attack the US through the southern border and Russia through northern border by way of Alaska. As the reader will clearly see in the preceding paragraphs, Obama is the catalyst in making these long-range communist plans come to fruition. Has Obama already signed Amerika’s surrender papers?

Is Dr. Todd correct? Do we only have 60-90 days left before everything unravels?

Half Of The US Senate Just Committed Felonies, Could Face 3 Years In Prison

senate

By: Nick Bernabe | TheAntiMedia.org -

Congress has really outdone itself this time. On Monday, neoconservative Republicans in the Senate were apparently so eager to go to war with Iran that they broke a federal law known as the Logan Act in the process. The Logan Act has been around since 1799 and has remained mostly unchanged, created to keep rogue members of Congress from undermining foreign relations.

How did Senate Republicans violate the Logan Act? Well they did that by being war mongers. But more specifically, when 47 members of Congress signed onto a letter that was sent to Iranian officials in an attempt to undermine the peace deal with Iran, they clearly violated the act — and also all committed felonies. According to Cornell University, the act reads:

“Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

And the precedent has already been clearly set. In the case United States v. Curtiss-Wright Export Corp. (1936), Justice Sutherland wrote in the majority opinion:

“The President alone has the power to speak or listen as a representative of the nation. He makes treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate; but he alone negotiates. Into the field of negotiation the Senate cannot intrude, and Congress itself is powerless to invade it.”

The Republicans, who so often talk of the Constitution almost as highly as they talk of their support for Israel, seem to have trampled over the document multiple times in as many weeks. You see, when they invited Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak to congress, they were in violation of the Logan Act then too. John Boehner is mostly at fault for the Netanyahu fiasco, though, so he’s the only member of the House that should be prosecuted for that.

However, 47 members of the US Senate — all Republicans — have clearly violated the Logan Act, and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Three years in prison for 47 members of our war mongering Congress? I would support that. The real question is: will enough Americans stand up and carry out the laws that are written plain as day in the Constitution, or will we simply sit back and expect the government to punish itself?

President Obama, who himself has shown little to no respect for the Constitution, seems to have no interest in prosecuting the war mongering 47, so that’s up to us to carry out. A petition to charge the Senators has already racked up over 40,000 signatures overnight (UPDATE: the petition has now surpassed 100,000 signatures, which means the White House will have to respond to it).

However, Citizen’s arrest seems to be a more effective plan of action than petitioning. These 47 men committed felonies and should be charged just as any one of us regular folks would be when we commit a crime. Who should we arrest first? John McCain or Lindsey Graham?

Virulently Anti-American: 81 Percent Of Russians Now View The United States Negatively

Anti-American

Russians view the United States much more unfavorably today than they did during the end of the Cold War era.  As you will read about below, an astounding 81 percent of all Russians now view the United States negatively, and only 13 percent have a positive opinion of this country.  In all of the years when Russians have been surveyed on their attitudes toward the U.S., they have never been this negative.  But of course Americans generally do not view the Russian people unfavorably.  So why is this happening?  Well, it all comes down to the actions of the Obama administration.  The Russian people are convinced that U.S. organizations organized, funded and armed the rebels that violently overthrew the democratically-elected Ukrainian government.  And once it was overthrown, the Obama administration immediately recognized the rebels as the legitimate government of Ukraine.  And now most Russians are convinced that the U.S. government is trying to promote a similar revolution inside Russia.  In recent years, the Russian people have become increasingly nationalistic, and at this point they view U.S. meddling in their affairs as a direct threat to their way of life.  Even while most Americans are extremely apathetic about what is going on over in Russia, an increasingly large chunk of the Russian population is angry enough to go to war.

Anti-American sentiment inside Russia has grown so strong that even the mainstream media is starting to report on it.  For example, the following quote comes from a recent article in the Washington Post

Thought the Soviet Union was anti-American? Try today’s Russia.

After a year in which furious rhetoric has been pumped across Russian airwaves, anger toward the United States is at its worst since opinion polls began tracking it. From ordinary street vendors all the way up to the Kremlin, a wave of anti-U.S. bile has swept the country, surpassing any time since the Stalin era, observers say.

For the recent survey that I mentioned above, Russians were asked this question: “What is your general attitude toward the United States?”

81 percent of Russians responded negatively, and only 13 percent had a positive response.

That is the most negative that Russians have been toward the U.S. since polling began back in 1988.

And this could potentially be just the beginning.

For a moment, I want you to imagine a scenario.  I want you to imagine how the U.S. government and the U.S. population would respond if the Russians organized, funded and armed rebels that overthrew the Canadian government.  And then imagine how the U.S. government and the U.S. population would respond if the Russians started shipping heavy military vehicles and sophisticated military equipment to those rebels after they had established a new pro-Russian government.

I can just see it now – people everywhere would be screaming “Red Dawn” and warning of imminent war with Russia.

Well, the truth is that Ukraine is Russia’s most important neighbor, and the two nations have ties that go back for thousands of years.

When we meddled in Ukraine, we poked Russia right in the eye, and now we have a very angry Russian bear to deal with.

For much more on how angry Russians are at this moment, please see my previous article entitled “This Is How Much Russians Hate America“.

And if Barack Obama decides to start sending heavy military vehicles and equipment to the government in Kiev, that is going to escalate things to a completely new level.

If you do not think that could happen, you should consider what the Washington Post is reporting

President Obama said Monday that he is considering providing Ukraine with lethal weapons to defend the country against Russian aggression if diplomatic options fail.

Of course it is not just Obama that is thinking this way.  In fact, there is lots of pressure on Obama from both sides of the aisle to arm the Ukrainians…

The pressure on Obama from the Republicans, but also from his own political camp, is intense. Should the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine not hold, it will likely be difficult to continue refusing Kiev’s requests for shipments of so-called “defensive weapons.” And that would represent a dramatic escalation of the crisis. Moscow has already begun issuing threats in anticipation of such deliveries. “Any weapons deliveries to Kiev will escalate the tensions and would unhinge European security,” Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of Russia’s national security council, told the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda on Wednesday.

In the end, I believe that this is going to happen.  And when it does, all hell is likely to break loose.

If you believe that cooler heads will somehow prevail, you should consider what is already happening.  At this point, U.S. tanks and military vehicles have already rolled into Latvia

Latvia has confirmed more than 120 armored units, including tanks, have been delivered by the US. According to the Latvian Ministry of Defense, these include M1A2 Abrams tanks and M2A3 Bradley armored vehicles.

The move to deploy yet more tanks and armored vehicles was welcomed by Latvian Minister of Defense Raymond Vejonis.“The presence of our allies (US and NATO) in Latvia is a confirmation of solidarity and security in the region,” Vejonis said in a statement on Twitter.

How would we feel if Russian tanks were rolling into northern Mexico?

And many in Europe seem to be quite hawkish these days as well.  For instance, the president of the European commission says that an EU army is needed to deal with the potential Russian threat

The European Union needs its own army to help address the problem that it is not “taken entirely seriously” as an international force, the president of the European commission has said.

Jean-Claude Juncker said such a move would help the EU to persuade Russia that it was serious about defending its values in the face of the threat posed by Moscow.

All of this posturing could ultimately lead to something far worse than the Cold War.

If we keep pushing Russia, we could someday end up with a real war on our hands.

But don’t just take my word for it.  Just consider the following excerpt from a recent article by Stephen Lendman

Ukraine is ground zero. Ongoing conflict risks the unthinkable – direct US confrontation with Russia risking nuclear war.

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned Ukraine’s conflict could “unavoidably lead to a nuclear war..”

Nuclear arms expert Steven Starr warned about things headed recklessly toward this possibility.

Nuclear expert Helen Caldicott believes US/Russian confrontation risks nuclear war. Things today are more dangerous than any previous time in the post-WW II period.

Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark said “(n)othing is more dangerous than the aggressive US/NATO troop movements right on the borders of Russia.”

To most Americans, the threat of nuclear war with Russia is a joke.  Most people in this country believe that it could never possibly happen.

But an increasing number of experts are starting to wake up and realize that if we stay on this road that it could be a very real possibility.  For example, author Daniel Estulin had some very interesting things to say during one recent interview…

The United States and its European allies are seeking to overthrow the Russian government by escalating the confrontation with Moscow up to the “threshold of a thermonuclear war,” an author in Madrid says.

US President Barack Obama is orchestrating a regime change to topple Russian President Vladimir Putin, said Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group.

The US and Britain have “reactivated a policy of threatening tactical nuclear warfare against Russia and China to force them to submit to the crumbling transatlantic financial empire,” Estulin said during a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday.

“That submission will not happen, however, as the Russian leadership has repeatedly made clear,” he added.

For much more on a potential war with Russia, please see my previous article entitled “While Obama Guts The U.S. Military, Russia Prepares For War“.

But before a shooting war happens, Russia will attempt to use other means at their disposal to hurt us if we start shipping military equipment to the government in Ukraine.

So let us hope that does not happen.

If the Obama administration backs off, things may have a chance to cool down.

However, if the Obama administration publicly announces that we will be arming the new Ukrainian government, that will be an absolutely critical moment for U.S.-Russian relations.  Once that happens, there will be no turning back.

So let us keep a close eye on what Obama decides to do, because what he decides to do next could literally set us on a course toward World War III.

Russia Is Tightening The Noose For A Military Invasion Of The U.S.

T-90A_shtora_active

Do you remember as a child in elementary school playing games like “Capture the flag” and “King of the hill”? As you grew older you were taught from a military perspective that military commanders want to occupy the high ground.  If we go on to learn military strategy, we frequently encounter the admonitions that it is imperative to occupy the high ground. The master analyst of all warfare, Sun Tzu often spoke of this as well:

sun tzu

If enemy camp is on high ground, do not climb to launch attack.

The Ongoing Buildup At the North Pole

Under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which was finalized in 1982, countries can lay claim to the ocean floor well beyond their borders so long as they can provide convincing scientific evidence to prove that a particular seabed is an extension of their continental shelf. Already, countries have sovereign rights to resources within 200 nautical miles of their territorial waterways. For a country to determine whether they have economic sovereignty beyond that distance, the UN agreement requires comprehensive mapping that establishes some sort of geologic justification for the claim. And where the Arctic is concerned, Canada, the US, Norway, Russia, and Denmark have been amassing scientific evidence for more than a decade in an effort to increase their piece of this resource-rich pie. From a resource perspective, the wars have been fought for less significant reasons than what we are seeing transpire at the North Pole. However, the major reason to fight over the control of the North Pole is the same reason as we fought for the high ground in our children’s games, namely, military domination over our opponent.

The Military Significance of Occupying the North Pole

Take one more look at the Arctic map at the top of the page. If Russia can complete its task of establishing military dominance over the North Pole, it will be free to attack in any direction against high value targets. These hypothetical military advances coming out of the North Pole will force both NATO and the United States to shift into a defensive posture in order to prepare for a northern invasion coming out of the North Pole.

On any given morning, the Russians could attack into the territories of the Scandinavian countries, thus threatening Europe. The nations of Eastern Europe (e.g. Hungary, Poland), are already living under fear of invasion from the East. Now, they would potentially be caught in a vice from the North. This would make NATO’s defense of Eastern Europe virtually indefensible.

Simultaneously, Russia could sweep down from the North Pole and attack through Northern Canada. And of course, Alaska is fully exposed. In a World War III scenario, Alaska would be a high variety target, unto itself, because of the McKinder Hypothesis which states that historic Russian military strategy is predicated on securing valuable sea ports, because the long Russian shoreline does not have any valuable sea ports to speak of.

In one fell swoop, Russia could launch the military equivalent of the TET offensive attacks (1968) in which the Viet Cong attacked every provincial capital on the same day during the TET cease fire arranged for a Vietnamese holiday. The Viet Cong could not sustain such a widespread front and the attack collapsed but not before American morale and citizen support for the war had eroded. However, the Russians do have the military depth to sustain such a military action.

When I look at a map of the North Pole, I see a chessboard. Not when, but if the Russians fully occupy the North Pole, their mere presence at the top of the world will result in a checkmate kind of move. The troops, supplies and equipment needed to prepare for an invasion from the North, would be troops, supplies and equipment not assigned to engage Ukraine, Syria, Iran, Taiwan and South Korea due to Russian and/or Chinese invasion.

Do the Facts On the Ground Support the Military Hypothesis?

russian-map-north-pole-finland

Just since the beginning of 2015, Russia has begun to position its forces in key strategic positions. For example, in mid-January of 2015, the Russians began to move military assets to the Arctic region of the Finish border as they reopened an abandoned military base on the Kola Peninsula in the Russia city of Alakurtti recently, just 60 kilometers from the Finnish border. Checkmate Europe!

Russia Is In War Mode

The Russians are in war mode, Arctic war mode. I do not see how any reasonable person could read the following accounts of Russian military buildup in the Arctic and not conclude that the spark for WW III will not begin here.

Russia has tested the world’s most powerful vacuum bomb, which unleashes a destructive shockwave with the power of a nuclear blast, the military said on Tuesday, dubbing it the “father of all bombs”.  This is the most powerful non-nuclear bomb on the world. In fact, many experts believe that this bomb does pack a nuclear punch.  This would be the weapon of choice in the coming Arctic conflict because it would kill soldiers, dismantle military equipment without destroying the surrounding mineral resources, which is the point of the coming conflict.

Additionally, Russia is adding 40 new naval ships to its nuclear arsenal in 2014. By the end of 2015, Russia will have nearly as many naval ships as the United States. Retrofitted combat aircraft from Russia’s Northern Fleet will extend the ranges of their patrol flights over the Arctic in 2014 using a network of revamped Soviet-era airfields. In 2011, Russia deployed four brigades of combat troops into the Arctic.

Ballistic missile submarines make up one part of Russia’s strategic nuclear triad along with land-based ICBMs and the Russian bomber force. The Borey submarine is Russia’s first post-Soviet ballistic missile submarine class and will form the mainstay of the strategic submarine fleet, replacing aging Typhoon, Delta-3 and Delta-4 class boats. The creation of the Borey signals that the Russian economy is in war mode.

Russia ultimately expects to manufacture eight Borey-class submarines by the year 2020. People constantly are asking me for time frames connected to these events and I dismiss such questions as a fool’s errand. However, the deployment of these submarines by 2020 may provide a clue as to the timetable that the globalists are operating under. Oh yes, make no mistake about it, this coming war will not happen without the blessings of the banksters from Basel.

Additionally, the Russians are commissioning other submarines as well. Russia’s first Project 885M Yasen-class attack submarine, the Severodvinsk, was handed over to the navy at end of 2013. This submarine has been under construction since 1993.

Who do you think these Russian weapons are intended for? And what has all of this got to do with the giveaway of 7 Alaskan Islands and the training of Russian troops on American soil? Islands? Russian troops on American soil? Perhaps you should read on.

Who do you think these Russian weapons are intended for? And what has all of this got to do with the giveaway of 7 Alaskan Islands and the training of Russian troops on American soil? Islands? Russian troops on American soil? Perhaps you should read on.

Any Military Invasion Will Surely Include Alaska: The Treason Factor

Nowhere have I received more information than I have from Alaska regarding the presence of Russian soldiers, in uniform, on American soil. Further, the F-22 over-flights between Russia and Alaska have been suspended thus, leaving the coastline more vulnerable.  The flights were ostensibly canceled  because of oxygen uptake issues with the pilots of the F-22’s. These surveillance flights should have been replaced, at least temporarily with the F-16’s. They have been replaced by nothing. Also, according to naval sources, submarine patrols have been greatly reduced and many locals have been reporting seeing fully surfaced Russian subs off of the coast of Alaska in multiple locations.

Obama’s giveaway of seven oil-rich and strategically located Islands to Russia should concern all Americans. Giving away these islands constitutes a blatant act of treason.

Obama’s giveaway of seven oil-rich and strategically located Islands to Russia should concern all Americans. Giving away these islands constitutes a blatant act of treason.

Obama is not just a traitor for bringing in Russian troops to police Americans, his treason started much earlier. As I have previously reported, but the report went unheeded, Obama has given away seven strategic, oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Russians at a time when we could be going to war with Russia over Syria and Iran. At minimum, the oil, alone, from these Islands should be considered to be a military asset. I remain very concerned that these seven islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea could also be used as a military staging area from which to invade Alaska and defend its new claims of the mineral rich resources at the North Pole.

Was this coming moment foretold on the mural at Denver International Airport near baggage pick-up?

Russian troops began carrying out joint anti-terrorism drills in America in May of 2012. What terrorists could they be practicing for? The influx of Russian soldiers maybe began just as a trickle with a couple of dozen of Russians stationed at Fort Carson as we are witnessing the insertion of 5th column Russian troops on our soil. The extra-constitutional “agreements”(that means illegal agreements) were inked in Washington, D.C., at the fourth annual meeting of the illegally created U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations.”This extra-governmental organization, formed under the Obama administration, is one of almost two dozen similar “working groups” bringing together top U.S. and Russian officials. These two bodies are cooperating on everything from the drug war and agriculture to terror, science, “rule of law” (could that be code for martial law?), health, environment, energy, nuclear issues, education, culture, media, business, arms control, and more, according to the U.S. State Department. The Senate has not ratified any of the international deals, as required by the Constitution of the United States. And as such, this is an illegal agreement. However, this is not just an illegal agreement, IT CONSTITUTES TREASON AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

However, with the FEMA bilateral agreement, it is clear the floodgates are ready to burst wide open and Obama’s treachery is fully exposed. The following is in response to the trolls to who constantly write to me and say there are no Russian troops on American soil. As if the above is not enough to convince one of the growing Russian presence which coincides with the Russian military buildup at the North Pole, perhaps, you would like to feast your eyes on the following:

Conclusion

Since I wrote the first account of this preparation of the Russians to occupy this country, nearly two years ago, my fear of a Russian attack and subsequent Russian occupation has been greatly heightened.

When Russia consolidates its Arctic holdings they will surely exploit their military advantage as described in the earlier paragraphs. Again, Putin has outmaneuvered Obama and it has all been by design.

Perpetual War To Justify The Permanent War On Terror

usa_flag_bombs-1979px

The saga of continuous deployment and a garrison empire is a long and sad state of affairs. Using the trumped up fright that America’s enemies are geared up to bomb malls and sporting venues, builds a phony fear that the only response to combat the threat is to wage continuous foreign campaigns. What put such sophistry to rest are the facts that such uninterrupted carnage just feeds the fields of growing hostility towards America. If the War on Terror was winnable, why not start by stopping the War of Terror that is the center piece of aggressive projection of bellicose power.   

The militarist over at Red States warns that Obama is gumming up the works. In the article, Obama’s AUMF is Actually a DUMF the horror that placing a limit on the use of expansionist support deeply offends the warmongers. Folks, their positions are not a fair or representative reflection of true and traditional conservative foreign policy. 

“The AUMF proposed by Obama, on the other hand, explicitly repeals the 2002 AUMF and furthermore explicitly states that ground troops cannot be used, as they can be used (and have been used by Obama) under the 2002 AUMF. It furthermore contains an automatic three year expiration, which is not contained in the currently active AUMF. 

In other words, this is not even fairly called an Authorization for the Use of Military Force. It’s actually a Deauthorization for the Use of Military Force. Republicans in Congress should start referring to it as the DUMF (pronounced DUMB-f) so that people will be reminded what sort of person would be convinced that Obama takes confronting the threat of ISIS seriously.” 

In order to have a sound and constitutional approach to safeguarding the Republic, the first step is to be honest with ourselves. The preservation of the sole superpower mantra is far more dangerous than any suicide bomber. Yet, the internationalists will never be content until they manufacture or invent a new advocacy to keep the full spectrum dominance machine rolling along. Such a mind-set and way of thinking is psychotic.  

For those who hope the Obama administration is actually operating on a more balanced level; don’t believe that spin for a minute. The essential reality is that there are only two positions in gauging foreign policy. The first is the bipartisan establishment agreement that “Politics Stops at the Water’s Edge”. Even the Council on Foreign Relations admits in the essay, American Foreign Policy Is Already Post-Partisan the following. 

“Yet how deep is the partisan divide over the place of multilateralism in U.S. foreign policy? To explore this question, in the past year we sent a survey to foreign policy professionals: 50 Republicans and 50 Democrats, who had served in a mid-level or higher foreign policy position in the Clinton, Bush, or Obama administrations, or on Capitol Hill. The respondents included 23 Democrats and 20 Republicans. 

The results of our study reveal that the parties are not as divided about multilateralism as the conventional wisdom suggests. First, strong majorities of both Republican and Democratic respondents said they believed that working closely with other nations serves U.S. interests and makes the country’s foreign policy more effective. Second, foreign policy leaders from both parties agreed that international economic institutions and free trade agreements are valuable, and that working with regional and global multilateral organizations such as NATO and the UN is important.” 

Such a response is expected from the echo chamber for the New World Order.  

The second perspective accepts the wisdom of the historic and guarded non-interventionism approach to foreign affairs. Based upon power politics exponents, who are in control of government agencies and influence institutions, their defiance for a reason and true national security, attacks such advocates for halting the unending cycle as domestic terrorists. The recent BATR RealPolitik Newsletter, Israel Owns Congress, illustrates a significant factor behind the driving pressure that exports violence from the Nefarious Warrior Organism. Yes this fitting description for the New World Order characterizes the essence of the establishment.      

Daniel Larison writes in the American Conservative, Paul and the Right’s Ideological Enforcers. 

“Michael Brendan Dougherty comments on the silly reaction of some “pro-Israel” hard-liners to Rand Paul’s insufficiently zealous applause for Netanyahu: 

“And I understand the suspicion. If I ever exerted myself so frantically on behalf of a cause, if lobbying for it required investing so many millions of dollars, and if maintaining party discipline on it required “brutal” ad drops on congressional obscurities, I would worry that some of the response I sought was perfunctory and insincere. The sonnets you receive don’t sound as sweet. The applause seems forced. Almost like they are faking it.” 

Unfortunately, this ludicrous ideological policing seems to work only too well. Paul’s response in the last two days has been to reaffirm how enthusiastically “pro-Israel” he really is. Even though the fixation on the intensity of his clapping at Tuesday’s disgraceful spectacle ought to have made clear that he will never be able to do or say (or clap) enough to satisfy his party’s hard-liners, he made sure to emphasize his “pro-Israel” bona fides by talking up his co-sponsorship of Corker’s Iran bill and the number of times (50) he has joined in standing ovations for Netanyahu. We can already hear the hard-liners’ response: “He gave only 50 standing ovations? He should have given at least 70.” 

This goes to the heart of the establishment’s primacy principle, American adventurism benefits Israel First interests. The reason the United States is engulfed in perpetual war is to keep the power elites in control. The permanent war of terror has the domestic public as the target. Why is this so? Plainly speaking, the globalists who have completed their takeover of the apparatus of governance have eliminated even the semblance of the rule by law. 

In the Ron Paul video from a GOP Presidential debate, Let Iran Have Nukes. No Sanctions, No War, you heard for the last time a common sense and prudent approach to counter the NeoCon and NewLib mantra of continual threat of war or actual combat. 

Stopping the interventionism of the foreign policy establishment like in their Ukrainian coup d’état, would require a total repudiation of the entire power structure that perverts the body politic. The lawlessness, that is the staple of the Obama administration, just made a pivot in rhetoric from the “Mission Accomplished” absurdity under Bush.  

All the time the same drum beat to a truly global conflict marches on because the fundamental axioms upon which, rest the internationalist system, is based has proven beyond any reasonable doubt, to be false and deadly.

We live under a reign of terror from our own illegitimate authorities. The domestic police state is a reflection of tactics used and perfected in Iraq. The creation of ISIL was achieved by western intelligence. The need for a new enemy becomes obvious when the old one turns out to be a phony menace. 

If Obama would really sunset the Authorization for the Use of Military Force, it might be the only worthwhile initiative of his years in office. However, in order to judge the feasibility and sincerity of his intentions, one might need to access the private emails of the former Secretary of State. Fat chance!  Dragging out the goods from the heroine of culture concealment brings back all the memories of the former Klinton era. 

That’s the way the guardians of the establishment work. Brew up mind numbing scandals, while the existential global tragedies of designed world domination, are ignored. The ease upon whom the war of terror is sold to the public is dreadful. 

Listing all the transgressions upon lawful restrains, imposed on the country since the 911 Wag the Dog scenarios, would take a book. How long will repeating the same strategy of failure continue to get favorable support? As long as confused conservatives accept that the bogyman is overseas and are not able to focus on the architects of treason at home, the NWO will just waltz its way to the symphony they compose.  

The absence of the formerly vocal anti-war movement in the way the Viet Nam war galvanized is a great regret. Adopting a non-interventionist doctrine should not be a left-right dichotomy. It needs to become a unified and committed cause that each citizen will actively adopt.  

The pathetic peer pressure used on a Rand Paul to become an Israel-First supporter needs to be condemned. If it was not for the internationalist and globalist lobby, our troops could and should be stationed on our own borders.     

Perpetual war to justify a permanent war of terror will destroy all that was once unique about America. The fifth column and systemic treason that passes as “PC” policy, is the enemy. Waking up is not enough. The blowback coming must be against the establishment. In order for the nation to rise from the ashes of destruction, the public needs to defeat the reign of terror conducted in our name.

While Obama Guts The U.S. Military, Russia Prepares For War

obama_putin

The Russian military and the U.S. military are going in two very different directions.  Military spending in Russia is increasing by a whopping 33 percent this year alone, and the Russians are feverishly preparing as if a major war with the United States is inevitable.  But despite the fact that the conflict in Ukraine has raised tensions with Russia to Cold War levels, the Obama administration is still acting as if we were living in a “post-Cold War” era.  Even while the Russians are arming themselves to the teeth, the U.S. military is being gutted.  In fact, the U.S. Army is in the process of being cut down to the smallest size that we have seen since the end of World War II, and the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that it has been since World War I.  There is very little political debate about this gutting of our military at the moment, but someday we may look back and bitterly regret not being more prepared.

No matter what your view of U.S. foreign policy is, we should all be able to agree that the U.S. Constitution mandates that it is the job of the federal government to protect this nation.  Sadly, according to one recent report the cutbacks that are happening right now have left the U.S. military only “marginally able” to defend this country…

The US military has become so depleted by cuts that it has been left only ‘marginally able’ to defend the nation.

Decreases in the number of soldiers and naval ships have led to armed forces falling short of President Obama’s national security strategy, a report by The Heritage Foundation claimed.

Yes, we are spending far more on our military than anyone else on the planet is.  But a tremendous amount of that is pure waste.

When it comes to the things that really matter for national defense, corners are being cut.  For example, as I mentioned above, the U.S. Army is in the process of being reduced to the smallest size that it has been since World War II

The Quadrennial Defense Review announced last year that the Army would be cut from 570,000 soldiers to 440,000 – the fewest since World War II.

The Army historically commits 21 brigade combat teams to one war but would struggle to do this and leave reserves if there were two simultaneous conflicts, the report said.

And according to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that is has been since World War I…

With the U.S. Navy arguably at its smallest since 1917, we don’t have many ships that are actually at sea. Only 35% of the Navy’s entire fleet is deployed, fewer than 100 ships.

But that is not all.  According to Stars and Stripes, the size of the U.S. Air Force is going to shrink by about 500 planes over the next five years…

The Air Force plans to cut nearly 500 planes from its inventory over the next five years if the Defense Department’s Fiscal 2015 budget request is approved by Congress, the service announced Monday.

The reductions — which would affect the active duty, Guard and Reserve — would be implemented in 25 states and the District of Columbia, according to a diagram provided by the Air Force. Only 47 planes would be eliminated overseas at a time when officials are emphasizing the importance of maintaining a strong forward presence to deter adversaries and respond quickly to crises.

For much more on how the U.S. military is being gutted, please see my previous article entitled “The Incredible Shrinking U.S. Military“.

At the same time all of this is going on, Russia is acting as if they knew that World War III was right around the corner.

According to CNN, the Russians plan to spend more than 20 trillion rubles to modernize their military by the year 2025…

Russia has begun investing heavily in upgrades to its military capabilities. President Vladimir Putin plans to spend more than 20 trillion rubles ($700 billion) bringing equipment up to date by 2025.

The modernization program is continuing despite an economic crisis that has already forced Russia to adopt an austerity budget for next year.

Even while the U.S. military is shrinking, the Russian military is getting larger.  The following infographic was published by TASS, and it shows some of the new equipment that the Russian military will be receiving by the end of this year…

TASS-Infographic-460x299

In addition, the Moscow Times is reporting that the Russian navy will be getting 50 new vessels in 2015.

So why are the Russians conducting such a massive military buildup?

Certainly the civil war in Ukraine is on their minds.  If there was a civil war up in Canada, the U.S. government would definitely be freaking out.  So it is understandable that the Russians are deeply concerned about what is happening to their neighbor.

But this military buildup by the Russians suggests that there is something more going on.

And I think that we can get a clue by looking at how the Russian military has been behaving.

For instance, the Russian air force recently conducted a drill which simulated an attack on NATO warships in the Black Sea

Russian fighter jets are practicing attacking NATO ships in the Black Sea in another dramatic sign that tensions over Ukraine continue to build despite a fragile ceasefire agreed last month.

“Russia’s newest Su-30 fighter jets and Su-24 attack bombers are using two NATO ships in the Black Sea to practice penetrating anti-air systems,” reports Sputnik, citing a source at the Sevastopol naval base.

Asserting that the NATO ships are conducting drills based around “repelling air attacks,” Moscow is taking the opportunity to practice “maneuvering and conducting aerial reconnaissance” outside the range of the ships in order to “practice attack scenarios”.

In addition, Russian strategic bombers have been making increasingly aggressive movements in recent months.  The following is from an article that described an incident in which two Tu-95 bombers buzzed Norwegian airspace

But on January 28 two more Tu-95 bombers, escorted by tankers and Russia’s most advanced MiG-31 fighter jets, showed up off the coast. One of them was carrying “a nuclear payload,” according to the London Sunday Express, which cited intercepted radio traffic. And last fall, a Russian Tu-22 supersonic bomber skirting Norway’s northern airspace was photographed carrying a cruise missile in launching position, according to the Barents Observer blog. Similar examples abound.

Adding to the potential for an unintended catastrophe, Russian warplanes typically lift off without filing a flight plan and cruise the busy commercial flight lanes with their transponders off, riling airline and NATO pilots alike. In recent months Russian warplanes have been engaging in Top Gun–style stunts far from home, popping up unannounced aside an SAS airliner on a flight between Copenhagen, Denmark, and Oslo and buzzing a Norwegian F-16 pilot.

And in the Pacific, two Tu-95 bombers recently buzzed Guam

Russian strategic bombers conducted a third circumnavigation of the U.S. Pacific island of Guam last week as other bombers flew close to Alaska and Europe, defense officials said.

Two Tu-95 Bear H bombers made the flight around Guam, a key U.S. military hub in the western Pacific, on Dec. 13. No U.S. interceptor jets were dispatched to shadow the bombers.

One of the reasons this is done is to test our defenses.

They want to see how we would respond if it was the real thing.

In a future war with Russia, the key to winning will probably be to strike first.  The Russians know this, and so they are putting a special emphasis on modernizing their strategic nuclear forces

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on December 19 that the Russian strategic nuclear forces will receive more than 50 ICBMs in 2015. Putin also reaffirmed plans to modernize the fleet of Russian strategic bombers and nuclear-powered submarines.

According to the new Russian military doctrine signed by Putin Friday, Moscow reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear weapons or any other types of weapons of mass destruction against Russia or its allies, as well as in the case of an attack with conventional weaponry that threatens the very existence of the state.

It is being reported that Russian Strategic Missile Forces are planning to conduct more than 100 drills in 2015.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration is treating the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal as if it was an unwanted leftover from an era that is long gone.

I have written much more about this in the past, and I will not repeat all of it here.  If you would like to dig even deeper into all of this, please see my previous article entitled “10 Signs That Russia Is Preparing To Fight (And Win) A Nuclear War With The United States“.

To most Americans, a war with Russia is not even a remote possibility.

But there is a much, much different mindset inside Russia these days.

During one recent military parade, a large missile was paraded through the streets with a message to Barack Obama written on the side.  Roughly translated, the message says “to be personally delivered to Obama”…

Russian-Nuclear-Missile-To-Be-Personally-Delivered-To-Obama-460x257

The Russians are preparing for war.

The United States is not.

So who is right and who is wrong?

Israeli Women Wage Peace

Israeli Women Wage Peace

Anti-war women of the world unite. They’re doing it in Israel. Thousands represent a refreshing antidote to Netanyahu’s hate-mongering rage for war.

Women Wage Peace (WWP) activists support a “viable” Israeli- Palestinian peace. They want working for it “place(d) at the top of the public agenda.”

They call peace the only solution “offer(ing) life and hope.” With Israeli general elections days away, they urge a “new and different reality in the Middle East.”

They call it “feasible.” Saying “we must strive for it.” Inspired by the horrors of last summer’s Gaza war, they “decided to initiate, mobilize and propose an alternative.”

“The last round of violence has made it clear to all that we must break out of the spiral,” they stress.

“Whether Left or Right-wing, religious or secular, Arab or Jewish, we want to live in a society characterized by normality, prosperity and human rights.”

“All of us wish to lead a sane and balanced existence.” They hope to enlist widespread public support.

They intend “engag(ing) decision-makers and demand a change in priorities. They want peace “over military and security-based approaches.”

Their mission statement says the following:

WWP “is a non-political, broad-based, and rapidly growing movement of thousands of women, taking action to influence the public and political arena.”

It aims “to restore hope and work towards a peaceful existence for ourselves, our children and future generations.”

It wants future wars prevented. It wants peaceful, viable conflict resolution benefitting everyone equitably.

It believes involving large numbers of women increase chances for achieving its objective.

“Cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli women working together to promote (peace) will increase the chances for a sustainable (longterm) solution.”

It calls its values:

– “Perseverance and determination

– Mutual respect

– Cooperation and joint leadership”

It calls on all Israeli women to join a mass initiative for peace.

“Spread the word,” it urges. “Influence change.” Wage peace, not war. WWP activists intend going all-out to stop its scourge.

On March 3, its members carrying anti-war banners marched down Tel Aviv’s Rothschild Blvd. ahead of a planned mass rally outside Israel’s Knesset.

WWP has about 7,000 members. They want Palestinian peace talks revived.

On Wednesday, thousands surrounded the Knesset. They delivered what they called an “alternative” to Netanyahu’s congressional rant.

WPP member Michal Shamir said he spoke “in Washington in English, and we have chosen to speak in Jerusalem in Hebrew and Arabic.”

Group members began their rally walking from Independence Hall (where Israel’s May 1948 declaration of independence was signed) to Derech Hashalom – a main exit to the Tel Aviv/Jerusalem highway.

Derech Hashalom means Peace Way. “If there is no way, there is no peace,” said Shamir.

Israeli lawyers Irit Tamir and Michal Barak founded WWP in the wake of last summer’s Gaza war. Yael Elad heads its media efforts. She serves as spokeswoman.

She says “women cannot just sit at home, complain, and hope for the best, without actively doing something to change the situation.”

“It’s time for us to be part of the dialogue that revolves around security and peace.”

“We sense that women disappear from the public space when you look at TV panels or listen to radio shows.”

“This place is reserved for generals or politicians, but never for women. This has to change.”

“Women are half of the population. We raise the kids who eventually get sent to fight wars or protect the country.”

“We should be there to say something about the outcome.”

Since last August, WWP attracted new members through at home meetings and social media.

It has over 7,000 registered and more than 10,000 Facebook followers. It aims to grow its ranks to 700,000.

“We must become a powerful electoral voice,” said Elad. “We disagree on many things but agree on the necessity of a peace agreement for the future of Israel.”

Rihad Abdul Halim said she joined WWP’s steering committee because of a deep belief in the power of women to peaceful conflict resolution.

It “starts at home,” she said. “As women, our role is to educate for tolerance and the acceptance of the other. Why do we want peace? Because we hurt most during war.”

Recruiting Arab women is harder because “(we) don’t see ourselves as decision-makers,” she said.

“We feel we have no influence. (It) rests with the government, which is Jewish.” Nevertheless, when I hold parlor meetings, I see the women change their minds.”

“I describe this connection like a woman standing on the side of a lake and throwing in a pebble, representing our vision.”

“The stone creates water circles that grow wider and wider. Similarly, this movement created circles of humanity between women.”

“We exchange knowledge and culture, empowering each other. The influence is not just in the domain of peace, but in society more broadly.”

It’s not easy in male-dominated Israel. Only one woman, Golda Meir, ever served as prime minister. She was no dove.

A potential future leader, Tzipi Livni, matches Netanyahu’s hawkishness. Women for peace in Israel find it hard to be heard.

WWP activists intend to keep trying for a goal vital to achieve. Professor Irit Keynan heads the Institute for Civic Responsibility.

“Politicians who are uninterested in peace hold onto weak excuses and raise the ghosts of the Jewish people’s traumatic fears,” she said.

Those wanting peace “are afraid to say so out loud, and compete with each other” to see who’s toughest.

Patriotism is identified with pro-war discourse. Peace is a four-letter word. Unless Israel ends conflict with Palestinians, its future is grim, Keynan believes.

Michal Keidar said she “lost the only man (she ever) loved in the madness of this country.”

She believes no one else should die because hawkish politicians choose war over peace. She urged others to support candidates “for a quiet, normal life” on March 17.

WWP activists want Israel governed by officials waging peace, not war. So do supporters of peace, equity and justice for their own countries worldwide.

Join the struggle against lunatics in Israel and Western countries threatening humanity’s survival to achieve their imperial goals.

Russia And The United States Are Already At War

lavrov

Lavrov accused Washington of violating the United Nations Charter by failing to respect the independence and sovereignty of states and constantly interfering in the internal affairs of those nations.

NEW YORK – Russia and the United States faced off Monday by launching harsh accusations at the United Nations Security Council. The U.N. body had a special meeting in to mark its 70th anniversary.

During the meeting, Russia took the opportunity to take a few swings at the American representatives by correctly pointing out how American interventionism is largely the cause of most military conflicts around the world.

Although the aim of the discussion was to reaffirm the commitment of the international community to the principles of the UN, tensions arose after Moscow accused Washington of instigating  conflicts such as Syria and Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, called attention to the recurrent violations of established agreements in the United Nations Charter, including points regarding the independence and sovereignty of states whose internal affairs the United States usually interferes with in order to further its agenda.

“Just remember the bombing of Serbia, the occupation of Iraq under false pretenses and the gross manipulation of the mandate of the Security Council which has led to the destruction and chaos in Libya,” Lavrov said.

For the Russian minister, who declined to comment directly to the US, all these movements are “the result of an attempt to dominate international affairs, to rule over all.”

In the case of countries that resist that domain, said Lavrov, the U.S. seeks to “encourage internal disorder and regime change,” which in his opinion was evident with the “support of the coup in Ukraine”.

He also criticized the imposition of “unilateral sanctions” without a green light from the United Nations, as adopted by the U.S. and the European Union against his country following the Ukrainian crisis.

Lavrov denounced, in that sense, attempts to convert the Security Council of the U.N. in an organism that simply adopts the guidelines of a “leader” or that is left out of important decisions.

Lavrov insisted that the Security Council should be reformed to regain the role it used to have.

“We see a need to take action together to eliminate the double standards of international politics and lead the Security Council to fill the role of a leading institution that is based on respect and solutions”, he noted.

In response, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said that if the Security Council has not assumed its responsibilities has often been precisely due to vetoes, as exercised by Russia’s numerous initiatives to try to oppose the war in Syria.

Power also referred to the situation in Ukraine and accused Moscow of training, arming and fighting alongside the separatists, violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the neighboring country.

British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, denounced the “illegal annexation of Crimea and destabilization of eastern Ukraine” on the Russian side as an example of threats to peace and security that persist in the world.

The meeting, in which several ministers participated, was convened by China, whose Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, called to end the mentality of “confrontation” and a new era based on cooperation among nations.

Secretary General Ban Ki Mun, meanwhile focused on the need to improve the work of the organization in defense of human rights and, for this, he insisted that the sovereignty of States can not inhibit when it comes to protecting the population.

“Sovereignty is still part of the foundations of international order, but in today’s world, the less you see sovereignty as a wall or shield, the better our prospects to protect people,” he said.

The Korean diplomat cited the case of Syria and wondered if some efforts to respond to violations of human rights and political problems could have avoided the situation.

In addition to reaffirming its support for the principles of the U.N. Charter, a number of countries discussed the importance of improving the effectiveness of the United Nations, especially the Security Council.

Many representatives spoke about the need for reform and to limit the power of veto in the hands of the five permanent members: US, UK, France, China and Russia.

The initiative to renounce the power of veto is especially needed when the U.N. Security Council needs to deal with massive crimes committed by governments against their people, or against other nations.

Such a reform would make it easier to deal with crimes like the ones committed by NATO members in Kosovo, those of Israel against Palestine, and last but not least, those carried out by the United States in places such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and Latin America.

America’s Interventionist Legacy: Failed States

A broken globe in an abandoned school in Ukraine. (Fiona McAllister / Flickr)

Wherever America intervenes, failed states follow. Pro-Western stooge regimes replace sitting governments.

They fail to provide essential functions, services and/or responsibilities required of sovereign independent ones.

Failed state examples include Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Haiti, Honduras, Somalia, Yemen and Ukraine. Syria’s government maintains power despite having lost control of much of its territory.

Wikipedia lists the following characteristics of failed states:

“Loss of control of its territory, or the monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force therein.”

“Erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions.”

“Inability to provide public services.”

“Inability to interact with other states as a full member of the international community.”

“(W)idespread corruption and criminality.”

“(I)nvoluntary movement of populations” creating huge numbers of refugees.

“(E)conomic decline.”

The Fund for Peace maintains an annual “Fragile States Index.” Characteristics include:

“Mounting demographic pressures.”

“Massive displacement of refugees, creating severe humanitarian emergencies.”

“Widespread vengeance-seeking group grievances.”

“Chronic and sustained human flight.”

“Uneven economic development along group lines.”

“Severe economic decline.”

“Criminalization and/or delegitimization of the state.”

“Suspension or arbitrary application of law; widespread human rights abuses;

“Security apparatus operating as ‘a state within a state.’ “

“Rise of factionalized elites.”

“Intervention of external political agents.”

Chomsky argues “we should have little difficulty in finding the characteristics of ‘failed states’ right here at home.”

He calls America an out-of-control hegemon waging permanent wars on humanity under the pretext of “anticipatory self-defense” or “preventive war.”

Attacking any country it calls a threat to national security – real or invented. International, constitutional and US statute laws don’t matter.

Might makes right when America says so. Ultimate doom may be humanaity’s legacy if this monster isn’t stopped.

It operates under what Adam Smith called the “vile maxim of the masters of mankind: All for ourselves and nothing for other people.”

It’s willing to risk global war to achieve its objectives. Rogue state ruthlessness defines US policy. William Blum calls them “worse than you imagine.”

“If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy (throughout) the past century, this is what crawls out:”

“invasions, bombings, (subversion), overthrowing governments, suppressing (popular) movements for social change, assassinating political leaders, perverting elections, manipulating labor unions, manufacturing ‘news,’ death squads, torture, (chemical), biological (and nuclear) warfare, (radiological contamination), drug trafficking, mercenaries,” police state repression, and war on humanity writ large.

“It’s not a pretty picture,” says Blum. “It is enough to give imperialism a bad name.”

Ukraine is the latest example of rogue US policy. Its seriousness can’t be overstated.

It’s Obama’s war. Using Ukraine’s military as proxy forces to advance America’s imperium throughout Eurasia.

Minsk resolved nothing. Ceasefire is temporary at best. It’s largely (though not entirely) holding in some Donbass areas but not all.

The Colonel Cassad web site says it has “one foot in the grave.” Chances for peace are virtually nil. It’s just a matter of time before resumed conflict. Perhaps more intensely than before.

For sure, instigated by Kiev on Washington’s orders. US military, intelligence and other elements direct war policy from Kiev.

US heavy weapons continue pouring into Ukraine. NATO planes arrive regularly with shipments.

Kiev conscription continues despite thousands of Ukrainians refusing military service. Mobilization readies for resumed conflict at Washington’s discretion.

On Monday, Putin, Merkel and Poroshenko discussed issues related to Minsk by phone. A Kremlin press release said:

“They discussed among other things the issues related to the ceasefire, the pullback of heavy armaments by the conflicting sides and the situation in the area of the southeastern town of Debaltsevo.”

They agreed on “concrete steps for OSCE (observers) to monitor” conditions on the ground.

Fighting for Debaltsevo continues. Resolving it isn’t included in Minsk terms. Both sides remain firm.

Kiev considers the city a major military asset close to Donetsk. Ukrainian propaganda depicts ongoing conflict as a heroic last stand.

Thousands of Kiev troops are surrounded. Effectively defeated. Rebels promised safety in return for surrendering and laying down their arms.

Standoff continues. It’s just a matter of time before Debaltsevo falls. How many more Ukrainian soldiers will die waging a futile battle remains to be seen.

DPR parliament Speaker Denis Pushilin was clear and unequivocal saying “(w)e do not have the right (to stop fighting for Debaltsevo). It’s even a moral thing. It’s internal territory.”

On Tuesday, AP said both sides “failed…to start pulling back heavy weaponry from the front line…”

Kiev military spokesman Anatoliy Stelmakh blamed rebels for Ukrainian violations.

RT International reported sniper fire on Friday attacking its camera crew about 14 km from Debaltsevo.

Casualties were avoided. “We came under fire. Everyone is alright,” said correspondent Roman Kosarev.

RT’s Arabic journalist Anna Knishenko said they were fired on when trying to leave Uglegorsk.

Ukrainian snipers are everywhere, she said. Clearly identified press representatives are targeted.

RT correspondents were repeatedly attacked last year. Fyodor Zavaleykov was wounded in Mariupol.

Other attacks occurred in Kramatrosk, Lugansk, Donetsk, and Chetnukhino. RT is one of the few news services reporting from Donbas. Perhaps the world’s most dangerous place for journalists today.

Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal headlined “Ukraine’s Truce Fades in Fight for Key Town.”

Saying ceasefire in Debaltsevo “lasted all of 40 minutes.” A sign of things to come.

Heavy fighting around the strategic railway town “has become the biggest challenge” to fragile agreed on terms, said the Journal.

Western officials blame Putin for what’s ongoing. Despite his urging both sides to end fighting.

Rebels keep battering Kiev forces. Even The New York Times admitted they “lost on the battlefield.”

One Ukrainian soldier called conditions “a meat grinder. We didn’t even pick up the dead, just the injured,” he said.

“There’s no way out. It’s a double encirclement.” The area was cut off for days.

On Monday, 20 Ukrainian soldiers managed to escape. They avoided death or injuries driving two vehicles across fields. No one else got out on Monday.

Debaltsevo reflects the struggle for Donbas sovereignty. One Ukrainian soldier said “(s)ooner or later (full-scale conflict) will start again.”

“It’s just a temporary ceasefire, not peace.” Before fighting ends, Ukraine may be destroyed altogether.

It’s already bankrupt. A failed state. With virtually no financial resources except IMF funds with strings.

Ukraine is “broke,” economist Michael Hudson explains. It practically exhausted its foreign reserves waging war it can’t win.

It “destroyed its (Donbass) industrial export and coal mining capacity…” It’s deeply in debt nearing insolvency.

According to Hudson, “Ukraine must meet conditions that seem almost impossible.”

It must comply with odious IMF terms amounting to turning Ukraine into a hollow shell. Looting it for profit.

At the same time, IMF chief Christine Lagarde says funds won’t be released without cessation of conflict.

Hudson believes Ukraine may be “the first step in the United States losing Europe. It may end up splitting European economic interests away from NATO…”

Playing America’s game amounts to shooting themselves in the foot. How long will they “acquiesce to this sacrifice,” Hudson asked?

At what point will internal interests override Washington’s? Hudson said Putin told Merkel and Hollande they had two choices.

On the one hand, join with Russia. Create a prosperous economic zone combining Moscow’s raw materials with European technology.

On the other, support US-dominated NATO’s Eastern European expansion “and draw Russia into war that will wipe it out.”

“Could Obama’s neocon strategy backfire and lose Europe,” asked Hudson? Will EU leaders act in their own self-interest and avoid WW III?

Patriotism And Civil Disobedience

patriotism roosevelt

“Man is the only Patriot. He sets himself apart in his own country, under his own flag, and sneers at the other nations, and keeps multitudinous uniformed assassins on hand at heavy expense to grab slices of other people’s countries, and keep them from grabbing slices of his. And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood of his hands and works for “the universal brotherhood of man”- with his mouth. - “The Lowest Animal”  by Mark Twain 

As the NATO juggernaut directed by a U.S. NeoCon foreign policy marches towards a nuclear confrontation with Russia, the American public is being manipulated to accept that Foggy Bottom knows best. Even under the placid Obama regime, the chicken hawks are able to restart a new cold war that is getting hotter by the moment. The singular opportunity to forge a lasting peace after the fall of the Soviet Union has been squandered by the globalists, who lust after their only superpower status. Well, the time is approaching for payback. Only God can prevent the annihilation from WWIII, since Dr. Strangelove has the code for the nukes and the culture that permeates military planning actually believes that a nuclear war can be won. 

This is the context that underpins the cry for citizens to demonstrate their trusting patriotism in an ongoing internationalist regime that seeks a permanent empire.  

When George Washington spoke of patriotism as “It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a Free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defense of it”, it is unimaginable that he would see current administrations as the embodiment of a Free Government, or that citizens have a moral obligation to defend an aggressive interventionist imperia that is endangering the survival of the entire planet. 

Honest Conservatives reject Neo Conservatism as a perversion of true national interests. The irony that an internationalist like Teddy Roosevelt would be lionized as a great patriot is attributed to his strong persona, while ignoring the consequences of his entanglement policies. His carrying of a “Big Stick” set the stage for the 21st century of using a blunt club.  

What exactly is patriotic about sending generations of youth, to be used as cannon fodder, for the sole purpose and benefit of global elites, who really rule our country?  When TR says: “Patriotism means to stand by the country” has become a meaningless viewpoint, since the control of the government is in foreign hands that have destroyed all semblance of what once existed as OUR Country.  

Popular public polls always provide higher support for the President than for legislators in Congress. Because of no small measure, the House and Senate have abdicated their constitutional duties in foreign policy since the Korean War. Leaving to the executive branch the full weight of determining relations with foreign nations has allowed the decisive influence to be concentrated in the State Department establishment. 

While the military-industrial-security-complex and the intelligent community agencies are the dominant power behind the globalist policy, the treasonous elites and foreign Banksters who control the strings are the only benefactors after the body count is compiled.   

Under this set of circumstances, what actual duty does a loyal American have to do the bidding of a corrupt and illegitimate government? Do you believe that George Washington fought the Revolution to allow the City of London to rule over the foreign policies of our own country?  

Even though the last two centuries have decidedly been influenced if not totally compromised by foreign agents, especially those among the Rothschild central banking cabal, the final responsibility for the loss of our country lies with the American people.

Americans have seldomly exemplified a burning desire to understand the truth. Most are content to believe that their leaders are good men and women and have the best interests of the nation as their goal. The fact that such a myth bears little resemblance with reality never gets through to the flag flying households that proudly display their Love It or Leave It bumper stickers.  

Their uncritical and all consuming Patriotism is a false and destructive sentiment. By allowing the mass media manipulation and distorted historical lessons to be accepted as mainstream culture, the forces of global dominance are able to achieve their worldwide governance.  

Now this assessment is disturbing to many people and the bearer of the message risks becoming ostracized from polite society. Yet, such a reaction does not refute the accuracy of the argument. 

What can or should a responsible citizen do to prevent the systematic betrayal of our country and the even more important, what can be done to stop the madness of NATO’s belligerency?  The Russian Federation under Putin is not the same threat of the Soviet Union of Lenin or Stalin. 

The practice of civil disobedience is most closely associated with fringe or radical dissenters. Ever since the demonstrations of burning draft cards and wearing the stars and stripes as bandanas of the Viet Nam era, the silent and moral majority became distrustful of protests. Nonetheless, the public display of discontent has influenced the body politick more than voting between bi-partisan clones of the same established order. 

Every rational person instinctively understands that money interests exert the primacy influence over public policy. Laws are administered and enforced according to the legal judiciary that operates, not as an arbitrator or adjudicator for justice, but as a protector of the patrician system.

Defiance has a charm about the image that movies exemplify, but little support when it comes down to popular engagement. The Henry David Thoreau of Philosophy may be discussed in conversation, but is seldomly practiced in ordinary life decision.  

People have surrendered their courage to confront governmental abuses. As the docility of personality becomes the normal standard for the “Political Correct” culture, government is emboldened to discard the public opinion that differs with official policy.

Taking to the street is seen in Europe frequently, even if it not reported on the nightly news. In the Brian Williams version of embellishment, the civilian receptor of perpetual war propaganda is blinded by the non news in order to accept the phony narrative. As the latest “Wag the Dog” episode of this year’s “War on Terror” play for the crowd, the ISIL miniseries gets overshadowed in the rating with the Ukraine designer conflict. 

Those who believe the sirens sounds from the triplets – Jen Psaki, Marie Harf and “Big NeoCon Mama” Victoria Nuland over at the State Department, are the most pathetic patriot impostors imaginable. Lost in the spin is that the State Department was an eager participant behind the Ukraine coup d’etat 

However, public apathy persists that the notion of spontaneous civil disobedience combustion is totally absent from public consciousness. With the susceptibility of simulated patriotic appeals, the swayable dullards will demand retaliation after the next cover-up deception is triggered.  

In a social order where it is impossible to throw out the bums in elections and courts will not follow the constitution, the lonely protestor has few options. Civil disobedience may not be popular in a psychologically induced environment, but denial is never a positive choice when tyranny is the official mode of rule. 

With the announcement that Israeli’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to Congress, the stakes are dramatically raised to eliminate Syria and Iran as a threat to the greater Zionist state and worse yet, to marginalize Russia and demonize Putin as a devil incarnate.  

When the media cheerleaders do their usual genuflections for Bibi’s call to arms, the rest of us are being used as bargaining chips to force a total capitulation or face nuclear destruction. If this is not an overwhelming reason to call for our own government to stand down, what would be? Threats from Israel that they will use their nukes against anyone who defies their demands, illustrates, who the real belligerent is in the region. 

The upside down nature of the authentic patriotism and what passes as a blank check for brinkmanship madness should be clear to even the least informed. Still, the inevitable responses to those, who demonstrate or employ protest with civil disobedience, are put up as enemies of the state. 

These are times for sober reflection. Dispel the manufactured and false flag crisis and concentrate on the bona fide threats that reside within our own shores. Fifth column subversives have assumed key position within the government. Their loyalty to causes or countries other than our own is a core factor in the insecurity that prevails.  

If civil disobedience is not your cup of tea, start digging your bomb shelter. The odds that our Congressional Representatives will grow a backbone are remote. Presidents view themselves as the most powerful and supreme leader of the world as opposed to an American servant.  

Dissent is the true patriotism when it is focused on eliminating despotism and restoring our foreign policy in keeping with George Washington’s Farewell Address. If you really love your country, put an end to the gunboat armadas of the TR mentality and follow the lead of the father of your country. 

Americans need to mature and grow-up. The dangerous world we live in was created largely because of the militarized intervention of the imperial U.S. Empire. Drawing lines in the sands of the Middle East is only superseded in pushing Russia to accept Ukraine to become a NATO member.

Globalism’s War For Domination

globalism

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. – H.L. Mencken

Some of us were there during the struggle to stop the war in another era. How quickly our fellow neighbors forget what the struggle over Viet Nam was all about. For those born after that period of national discontent, the lessons of that conflict seem to escape them. By now it should be clear for even the most staunch supporter of that debacle and tragic chapter of our history, that the only victory of that combat was the continual march to globalize the world community. The canard that the struggle against Communism was wholly a battle between good and evil has been exposed as a false choice. The last remnants of the righteous; namely the American experiment, that once gleamed hope for mankind, dissolved an entire century before that campaign in South East Asia.

What we have three decades later is an overt merging of the underlying and discredited totalitarian collectivism that Marxism represents, with the despotic democratic socialism that the United States has adopted. The demise of our own Republic is complete. The world community is a euphemism for compliance and control. The principle of individual convictions has become the primary enemy for this international cabal of elites. They cloak their own version of dictatorship in benign terms, while they consolidate their global reach and rule. Humanity faces extinction not from weapons of mass destruction, but from surrender to the forces of institutional depravity, that is at the core of the New World Order.

Now we have another round in the unabated and continual descent into the bowels of pure evil. The U.S. Congress and Senate has crossed its last Rubicon, buried the constitution even deeper and marches briskly in lock step to global government. Only those who are in total denial will defend that the world requires the permission of the beltway oligarchy, the sanctions of wall street plutocrats and the arrogance of the Mattoids within the international community. This NWO – is the only real, true and permanent enemy. Don’t be fooled that Obama seems to be alone for his push for regime change. The forces of globalism are always the beneficiary of WAR. Countries may seem to oppose U.S. strategy, but few are willing to confront the forces that exert real political power. What is at stake is not a path for remedial and paternal generosity as the proponents of Pax America want you to believe. The actual purpose of this latest hostility seeks to destroy any and all resistance to synthesize the world economy, to administer a uniformed political system and to demonstrate the effectiveness of their enforcement capacity.

If you accept and define patriotism to mean love of one’s country, why do you view government as synonymous with the nation? Is it so difficult to understand that the STATE only masquerades as representative of the people, while their actions are designed and consistently foster the global agenda? Why would you support, defend and advocate superpower status when that concentration of power and reach results in the demise of your own personal Liberty? When the popular TV announcement shows that terrorism has changed America forever with flags flying from row houses, why are those flags not flown inverted? Only American denial would dispute that our own homegrown terror resides within the political patricians that claim moral omnipresence, while their primary export is coerced compliance to international rule under the monocrary mantel of uniformed universal policy.

People obfuscate the essence of the continual struggle. They insist and want to separate the U.S. government from the NWO. Their denial is based upon confusion that our system and leaders oppose the most hideous designs by the oppressors of the International Corporate/State Axis. Their refusal to comprehend that the NWO is a supranational vision that requires the subjugation and elimination of the noble American experiment, is their fundamental error. Yes, the facts of history provide a clear downward descent of our nations adherence to the ideals of 1776. The constant assault upon our unique attempt to place government under the authority of citizens, has failed because our own leaders have deceived for decades, by claiming that they are defenders of our freedoms. Their record is one of betrayal and treason. Now we have the latest example, that the majority of the public favors our own home grown despots and demand to live and be governed under their surrender to world dominion.

The admission of Mayor Richard J Daley rings loud and clear from the grave. But in today’s society, dissent and resistance to a failed internationalist foreign policy is rare. The police of Chicago back in 1968 were innocuous compared to the planetary reach that their form of disorder seeks to use over regimes that fall outside the circle of capitulation. We are no fan or proponent of Iraq or the Islamic culture or cause. But we also reject policies that primarily benefit an Israel First objective or seizure and mastery over foreign oil resources. We don’t seek isolation from the world, but demand freedom from dominance from a world community that is bent on the destruction of our own beloved America Nation. When domestic politicians serve the interests of the elites that foster the international specter of human enslavement; we will oppose, resist and disobey their program.

Don’t conclude that we have any respect for the several DemocRATS that voted against the Iraq Resolution. The only Democrats that ever received our support were write in votes for Eugene McCarthy and George Wallace. Our endorsement embraces the Pat Buchanan viewpoint.

This authorization to use force without a clear declaration of war demonstrates that the projection of government power is the real objective. Protection of the homeland is not increased, but this coming conflict will guarantee an inevitable “blowback“. Regime change is an argument more properly directed to our own government. Will the denial of the apologists for unwarranted aggression ‘American Style’ make us safe, or will the smart bombs just advance the NWO program closer to their ultimate goal, world citizenship under the whip of a smiley face tyrant?

If this isn’t the factual reality of our age, what do you call the elimination and extermination of the countless millions during the last century to the forces of global domination? If you still believe that the U.S. policy wears a white hat, you are blinded by the RED color in the banner that poses as the county’s symbol. We pay homage to the original thirteen star flag. One that sought freedom and justice based upon limited government. As long as you refuse to see that segment of the enemy – holds reign under the guise of a fraudulent native government – the responsibility for terror on our shores will share your imprint. This coming war is wrong, immoral and unnecessary. This repeat of history risks total conflagration. Are you really so sure you want to support this cause?

NBC Hit Show – Allegiance – Is Psyops Conditioning For War With Russia (VIDEOS)

allegiance

Increasingly, we see Hollywood and MSM television being used to propagandize the American public. In the case  of the new NBC hit series, Allegiance, a pair of very strong political messages are preparing America for some very dire times ahead.

The show airs in the last hour of prime time on Thursday nights. NBC has made it the trailer to the very popular show, Blacklist. This is clearly a move designed to enhance rating thus increase the amount of Americans that will be reached with the desired psyops message.

Show Synopsis

allegiance-2-alexAllegiance is an intense drama that revolves around the O’Connor family and their son, a rookie CIA data analyst prodigy, Alex (played by Gavin Stenhouse). Alex is a young and idealistic who is fluent in Russian and specializes in Russian affairs. Unbeknownst to Alex, both of his parents and his sister are part of a long-term dormant Russian sleeper cell that has just been reactivated. Alex’s birth came after the implantation of the family into America by the Russian SVR.

allegiance-2-katyaYears ago, Alex’s mother, Russian-born Katya (played by Hope Davis), was tasked by the KGB to recruit American businessman Mark O’Connor (played by Scott Cohen) as a spy, and the two fell in love. A deal was struck that as long as Katya remained an asset for Russian intelligence, she would be allowed to marry Mark and move to America. After years of living in America, and enjoying the good life and without hearing a word from Moscow, both parents had mistakenly thought they had escaped. Now it seems the new version of Mother Russia has one more mission, which involves turning her CIA employed data analyst son, Alex, into a spy for the Russian SVR. The SVR (i.e. the KGB replacement for Russian Intelligence) has re-enlisted the entire family into service as they plan a massive Russian led terrorist designed to occur in the United States which is designed to bring America to its knees. For these ambivalent parents, the choice is clear, they can betray their country, or risk the lives of their entire family and be killed by the SVR.

A Telling Exchange In Episode Two

allegiance-2-russian-military-meeting-300x199

In episode two, in an SVR briefing about a planned terrorist attack on American soil led by the SVR, the briefer made the following statement:

“The American economy is a paper tiger. Cheap energy, Wall Street gambling and propaganda are the only things propping it up. This operation will answer the American aggression, forcefully, collapsing their economy in a single blow. American influence over the world will erode. And we will be able to operate in the world as we wish, in Ukraine, Europe and beyond. We are calling the operation “Black Dagger”.

In response to that bold statement a Russian General, being briefed, stood and labeled the plan as “madness”. The general continued his objection to this terrorist plot on American soil by saying, “This plan will kill thousands of Americans, tens of thousands”.

The presenter of the plot replied to the General’s objections by saying “Madness is the loss of Russian sovereignty. Madness is American sanctions preventing our ability to access our own bank accounts, even in Switzerland. This is madness. We can do nothing as America strangles us. We can do nothing, or, we can stand and fight back”.

The General responded, “There is a line, and Black Dagger crosses that line”.

The presenter stated “We are merely answering sanctions with sanctions”. The General stated, “American sanctions don’t have a blast radius“.

This last statement is clearly designed to evoke fear and anger toward the Russians and increase the belief that the Russians will force us to fight them in World War III, or we in the United States will face eventual destruction.

Implications

There is a clear intent on the part of this NBC show to prepare the American viewing audience for the inevitability of the need to go to war with Russia. The Russians are portrayed as ruthless thugs who think nothing of murdering tens of thousands of innocent Americans and that message is clearly embedded within the Allegiance storyline.

This is very telling since the new war on the CIA-created ISIS is ready to commence and the moment that U.S. troops cross the Syrian border in pursuit of ISIS, we risk Russian nuclear intervention, which Putin has already threatened. When ISIS stops playing the role of temporary enemy, the real enemy, Russia, will emerge and World War III will commence. Hence, the predictive psyops of the show.

There is a secondary goal connected to Allegiance and it is the same goal as the popular show, State of Affairs, and that goal is the restoration of the bad public image enjoyed by the CIA. In both shows, the CIA is portrayed as being conspicuously brave and honest to a fault and every CIA agent always puts their country first. The CIA always put their country first? Sometimes we forget our own history. The CIA created al Qaeda when they were the Mujahedeen freedom fighters in opposing the Soviet invasion in 1979. And as I have covered extensively in this week’s articles, the CIA created ISIS with the help of U.S. military equipment which was illegally left behind in Iraq.

Conclusion

Sometimes, when one wants to know what the bad guys are up to, all one has to do is simply look for what is hiding in plain sight. I have included several Allegiance show trailers so that the readers can examine the evidence and make up their own mind as to the psyops purpose of the show.
