Trump Seeks to Add China to New Arms Treaty – Washington Free Beacon – Bill Gertz

June 3, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The Trump administration wants China included in arms control talks on extending the 2010 New START strategic arms treaty despite Beijing’s reluctance to engage in multilateral arms negotiations.

Senior administration officials on Wednesday outlined the new arms control approach by the president summarized as focusing on arms control a means to an end—and not the process itself—culminating in an agreement designed to enhance U.S. security.

Tim Morrison, White House National Security Council director for weapons of mass destruction, said the world has moved on from Cold War-style bilateral arms treaties that cover limited types of nuclear weapons and only certain ranges of missiles.

Israel Hacking Elections Worldwide – Veterans Today | Military Foreign Affairs Policy Journal for Clandestine Services – Harold Saive

In this investigation, MintPress will reveal how ElectionGuard was developed by companies with deep ties to the U.S. defense and intelligence communities and Israeli military intelligence, as well as the fact that it is far from clear that the technology would prevent foreign or domestic interference with, or the manipulation of, vote totals or other aspects of American election systems.

Election forensics analyst and author Jonathan Simon as well as investigative journalist Yasha Levine, who has written extensively on how the military has long sought to weaponize public technologies including the internet, were consulted for their views on ElectionGuard, its connections to the military-industrial complex and the implication of those connections for American democracy as part of this investigation.

Chinese Video Urges War With U.S. – Bill Gertz

“Trump’s ‘outrageous and selfish’ strategy might work for smaller countries, but it will never work for China,” the video warns. “To quote a well-written article in the Global Times: If the Americans want to fight, we will fight them until the end! And we will fight until the Pacific Ocean splits into two!” Global Times is the Communist Party of China’s nationalistic and anti-U.S. news outlet.

China’s Communist Party-controlled media stepped up a war of words with the United States recently urging an escalation of the ongoing trade dispute into a full-scale conflict.

“China must be prepared to fight a protracted war,” states a four-minute, anti-American video posted five days ago on a Chinese video-sharing service.

“Freedom not conditional liberty. Sovereignty not limited autonomy. Peace not subjugation.” – Veterans Today | Military Foreign Affairs Policy Journal for Clandestine Services – Stuart Littlewood

Chatham House, the international affairs think-tank in London, recently invited Dr Riad Malki, Palestine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, to talk about the future of Palestine ahead of the ‘deal of the century’ dreamed up by the Trump administration. Malki is involved in shaping the Palestinian response to that initiative when it is finally revealed.

During questions the editor of the BBC News website, Raffi Berg, said that while the official PLO position is for 2 states as the solution to the conflict he mischievously suggested that Israel’s recent election results showed that Israelis consider the Palestinians’ position to be “insincere”. He asked: “Can you make clear whether you fully accept the presence of Israel as a country in the Middle East within/outside [indistinct] the 1967 ceasefire line?”

How ‘Reset’ Man McFaul Helped Torpedo U.S.-Russia Relations | The American Conservative – Scott Ritter

May 28, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

One of the key players in this interference was Michael McFaul, a Stanford professor who, while serving as the U.S. Ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014, oversaw a policy of engagement with Moscow on behalf of the Obama administration and, when that policy failed, facilitated U.S. interference in the 2012 Russian Presidential election in an effort to keep Vladimir Putin out of office.

McFaul’s “reset” policy was intended to reassert American influence into the Russian body politic in a post-Putin Russia. As such, when Putin announced in 2011 that he would again run for president, McFaul’s “reset” policy collapsed. Under the “reset,” the Obama administration, at McFaul’s urging, provided funding through the auspices of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the NED, NDI, and other non-governmental organizations to Russian civil groups that had coalesced into a political opposition to Putin’s 2012 presidential ambition. McFaul also encouraged Secretary of State Clinton to speak out in support of the Russian opposition.

Trump could reduce tensions with Iran by firing Bolton, Pompeo: Analyst – Mark Dankof

May 28, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

US President Donald Trump could reduce tensions with Iran by replacing his hawkish foreign policy advisers such as National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a former US Senate candidate says.

“Mr. Trump can solve that problem by merely by firing both of these people,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.

“He needs not only to pull back from this ridiculous talk of war with Iran, but he needs to get rid of the Boltons and Pompeos and all of these other people that in fact are doing Israel’s bidding in trying to get the United States into this mess for no legitimate reason at all,” Dankof told Press TV on Tuesday.

How the US regime uses sanctions to soften a country up for invasion | Intrepid Report.com – Eric Zuesse

May 27, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

On May 13, Reuters headlined “Iran insists on ramping up oil sales to stay in nuclear pact” and reported that “EU officials … estimate Iran needs to sell 1.5 million bpd to keep its economy afloat. A drop below 1 million bpd could bring hardship and economic crisis.”

Prior to US President Donald Trump’s cancellation of the nuclear deal with Iran and re-imposition of economic sanctions against Iran and against any companies that trade with Iran, Iran had been selling around 2 million bpd (barrels per day).

Furthermore, once Europe’s biggest supplier, Iran has seen its exports gradually cut off from European buyers.

China—Iran’s largest oil customer with imports of 475,000 bpd in the first quarter of this year—has also stopped buying from Iran after Washington chose not to renew sanctions waivers.

Trump Fooled by Advisors on Iran? – American Free Press – Richard Walker

May 27, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Not for the first time, two of the most hawkish members of the Trump administration have been using slanted Israeli intelligence to argue for military action against Iran, a move that would surely lead to a full-blown war across the Middle East.

National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been ratcheting up their calls for striking Iran by announcing the dispatch of the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Group and a bomber task group to the region. Both men claimed they had intelligence confirming that Iran was planning attacks on U.S. troops and assets. No one else seemed to know where that intel had originated, and security officials in Europe dismissed it as a deliberate effort to stoke tensions and justify actions that would lead to war with Iran.

Remember the Maine! Also the Arizona and the Maddox! – The Future of Freedom Foundation – Jacob G. Hornberger

May 27, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

As the U.S. war drums beat ever louder with respect to Iran, it’s worth remembering the Maine, the Arizona, and the Maddox. They were three U.S. vessels that played instrumental rolls in enabling U.S. officials to embroil the United States into foreign wars.

The Maine was a U.S. ship that that U.S. officials stationed in Havana harbor in 1898 in the hope of embroiling the U.S. in the Spanish-American War. This was a time of empires, with the Spanish Empire controlling Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Philippines, and others. Spain’s colonial acquisitions were fighting for independence, which was what the war was about.

The U.S. Constitution had called into existence a limited-government republic, one whose founding foreign policy was non-interventionism in the affairs and conflicts of other nations. That foreign policy had lasted about 100 years. By the time the late 1800s came around, however, there were a large number of Americans who favored converting the federal government into an interventionist empire, one that would acquire colonies and intervene in affairs and conflicts all over the world. Empire and intervention was the only way, they said, to make America great.

The Pathology of John Bolton – Consortiumnews – Joe Lauria

May 25, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Both Israel and Saudi Arabia, lacking the military firepower of the United States, have long tried to get the U.S. to fight its wars, and one no more important than against its common enemy. An editorial on May 16 in the Saudi English-language news outlet, Arab News, called for a U.S. “surgical strike” on Iran. But The New York Times reported on the same day that though Israel was behind Bolton’s “intelligence” about an Iranian threat, Israel does not want the U.S. to attack Iran causing a full-scale war.

The intelligence alleged Iran was fitting missiles on fishing boats in the Gulf. Imagine a government targeted by the most powerful military force in history wanting to defend itself in its own waters.

Bolton also said Iran was threatening Western interests in Iraq, which led eventually to non-essential U.S. diplomatic staff leaving Baghdad and Erbil.

It is the typical provocation of a bully: threaten someone with a cruise missile and the moment they pick up a knife in self-defense you attack, conveniently leaving the initial threat out of the story. It then becomes: “Iran picked up a knife. We have to blow them away with cruise missiles.”

 MARXIST MURDOCH SISTERS-IN-LAW TAKE OVER FOX NEWS – Anti-New York Times – Mike King

May 23, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

For the PRC (Predatory Ruling Class), the neo-con propaganda outlet FOX News has, for the past 20 years or so, served the important purpose of keeping conservatives on a leash long enough to allow to them vent off their frustration, yet just short enough to keep them from wandering off into the land of total truth. The sole saving grace of the network was that, in allowing just enough cosmetic “conservatism” to air before millions of viewers, a percentage of the more astute elements of the massive audience would eventually wander off the plantation completely and join the ranks of the full truth “conspiracy theorists” TM.  Indeed, during the late 1990’s, your now fully enlightened Editor here passed through the FAUX News / Rush Limbaugh halfway-house before growing out of the “Left-Right” control cage altogether.

For that reason, in spite of our disdain for Rupert Murdoch‘s FAUX, we are nonetheless troubled by the recent and much-publicized rise of his de-balled sons (Lachlin & James)  and their stupid and controlling communist wives (Sarah & Kathyrn). The scuttlebutt, coming from multiple sources within FOX, is that the contemptible, yet immensely popular, Bill O’Reilly was forced out by these beautiful women. O’Reilly’s coveted 8 PM slot will be filled by Tucker Carlson, whose first guest as the new 8-PMer under the reign of the Bolshevik Bitches will be a man that O’Reilly once mocked — the freakish trannie, Bruce Jenner (now referred to as “Caitlyn”).

Establishment historians claim that U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt never wanted war and made every reasonable effort to prevent war. This article will show that contrary to what establishment historians claim, Franklin Roosevelt and his administration wanted war and made every effort to instigate World War II in Europe.

U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and his advisers played a crucial role in planning and instigating World War II. This is proven by the secret Polish documents as well as numerous statements from highly positioned, well-known and authoritative Allied leaders who corroborate the contents of the Polish documents.

Israel’s War Criminals In Their Own Words, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

May 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Israel’s public face, sustained and propagated by a wealthy and powerful diaspora that has significant control over the media, insists that the country is the Middle East’s only true democracy, that is operates under a rule of law for all its citizens and that its army is the “most moral in the world.” All of those assertions are false. Israel’s government favors its Jewish citizens through laws and regulations that are defined by religion. It in fact now identifies itself legally as a Jewish state with Christians and Muslim citizens having second class status. Israel’s army, meanwhile, has committed numerous war crimes against largely unarmed civilian populations in the past seventy years, both in Lebanon and directed against the Palestinians on the West Bank and Gaza.

In response to the past year’s Great March of Return protests staged by Gazans along the fence line that separates them from Israel, Israeli army snipers have shot dead 293 Palestinians and wounded seven thousand more. Twenty-thousand other Gazans have been harmed by other weapons used by the Israelis, to include canisters from the volleys of tear gas and rubber bullets. The numbers include hundreds of children and medical personnel trying to help the wounded, which reportedly have been particularly targeted.

How the West’s War in Libya Spurred Terrorism in 14 Countries – Consortiumnews – Mark Curtis

May 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Eight years on from NATO’s war in Libya in 2011, as the country enters a new phase in its conflict, I have taken stock of the number of countries to which terrorism has spread as a direct product of that war. The number is at least 14. The legacy of the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi — pursued by U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and U.S. President Barack Obama — has been gruesomely felt by Europeans and Africans. Yet holding these leaders accountable for their decision to go to war is as distant as ever.

The 2011 conflict, in which NATO worked alongside Islamist forces on the ground to remove Gaddafi, produced an ungoverned space in Libya and a country awash with weapons, ideal for terrorist groups to thrive. But it was Syria that suffered first.

After civil war broke out there in early 2011, at the same time as in Libya, the latter became a facilitation and training hub for around 3,000 fighters on their way to Syria, many of whom joined Al-Qaeda affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State-affiliated Katibat al-Battar al-Libi (KBL), which was founded by militants from Libya.

Trump Hits Huawei With Export Controls – Bill Gertz

May 21, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

President Donald Trump indirectly targeted China’s Huawei Technologies with a presidential order signed last week blocking telecommunications companies linked to foreign adversaries from selling equipment to U.S. firms.

However, a more significant new policy was imposed by the Commerce Department, which added Huawei to a list of foreign companies hit with tough export controls that prevent American technology companies from selling goods to Huawei, which has been identified by U.S. intelligence as linked to the Chinese military and intelligence services.

“While the presidential order is important to signaling allies how serious the threat is, the real punch is putting Huawei on the entities list,” said retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Rob Spalding, a former Trump White House official involved in telecommunications policy.

John Bolton wants war on all nations the US doesn’t control. His longstanding hostility toward Iran is well known.

Reportedly he’s been pushing Trump for war on Iran since becoming national security advisor. His notorious 2015 NYT op-ed headlined “To stop Iran’s bomb, bomb Iran.”

Iran has no “bomb,” doesn’t want one, and called or a nuclear-free Middle East numerous times — Israel the only nuclear armed and dangerous nation in the region, its nuke development aided and supported by the US.

Pompeo reportedly favors war on Iran by other means, wanting its economy crushed, falsely believing its authorities will cave to US demands.

When is a war crime not a war crime? When it’s committed by us, of course.

But this truism is taking on a new and sinister meaning today – and not just because Trump and his crackpots may be planning another clutch of atrocities in the Middle East.

For there is now a dangerous slippage becoming apparent in which western states are more ready than ever to countenance military crimes against humanity, to accept them, approve of them and to expect us to connive at these gross and sickening breaches of international law.

Why Our Churches Are Defaulting For War – We Hold These Truths

May 17, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

American leaders depend on patriotic, American Christians to support America’s serial wars. Churches have a Jesus taught responsibility to oppose the social evil of war with at least as much vigor as we oppose starvation after a natural disaster in faraway places. Meanwhile, wars and the threat of war go on unchecked and under-reported by our churches.

Our political leaders blame these serial wars on “hostile” little states that they vilify to keep our moral leaders quiet. Most churches fail to even pray for world peace. Does yours? Join Chuck Carlson and members of We Hold These Truths in this lively, 26 minute podcast about the importance of what Jesus taught: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9).

The Revelations of WikiLeaks: No. 3—The Most Extensive Classified Leak in History – Consortiumnews – Patrick Lawrence

May 17, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

For WikiLeaks, 2010 was an exceptionally eventful year. In April the transparency organization released “Collateral Murder,” the video of U.S. Army helicopters as they shot more than a dozen Iraqis in Baghdad. That proved a worldwide shock and put the 4-year-old publisher on the global media map.

“Afghan War Diaries,” a cache of 75,000 documents, followed in July.

Three months later, on Oct. 22, 2010, WikiLeaks released an even more explosive trove: 391,831 documents and videos it named “Iraq War Logs.” This superseded “Afghan War Diaries” as by far the most extensive leak of classified material in U.S. history. It shone a stark light on the U.S.–led coalition’s conduct in Iraq after its 2003 invasion, when the nation had erupted into a violent sectarian war. Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder, said the Logs “constituted the most comprehensive and detailed account of any war ever to have entered the public record.”

Who Wants This War with Iran? – Patrick J. Buchanan – Official Website

May 17, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Outside a few precincts, America has no enthusiasm for a new Mideast war, no stomach for any occupation of Iran.

Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea.

“There won’t be any war. … We don’t seek a war, and (the Americans) don’t either. They know it’s not in their interests.”

The ayatollah’s analysis — a war is in neither nation’s interest — is correct. Consider the consequences of a war with the United States for his own country.
