Trump has flipped

by DAVID BROWN | | April  23, 2017

Quick assessment on Trump:

  1. He has flipped to the Neocons
  2. He has flipped to the Deep State
  3. He has partially flipped to the Globalists

If Trump flips on all three, we will have a de facto continuation of the Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama agendas.

More in-depth, penetrating analysis from from Dr. Paul Craig Roberts…

TMR 171 : Dr. Paul Craig Roberts : Trump Is Over
Published on Saturday, 22 April 2017 20:50

“I think that the Trump presidency is already over. I’m not even sure he qualifies as a figurehead.”—PCR

Dr. Julian Charles: “We are joined once again by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy, for a discussion on the Trump presidency so far.”

Dr. Roberts assesses the performance of the new president and his administration with reference to pre-election promises; shares with us his view that the deep state has effectively neutralised Donald Trump as US president; gives his reaction to the so-called “Syrian gas attack” in Idlib, and the subsequent military action by the US against Syria; and considers the very real prospects for war as Washington steps up its warmongering around the globe.

James Perloff returns to Our Interesting Times to his article “Trump Is Unmasked: 14 Reasons Why the Syria Airstrikes Were a Really Bad Idea.”  We talk about President Trump’s decision to order a missile attack on a Syrian airfield last month and why this apparent betrayal is a signal that his administration has been co-opted by neoconservative warmongers and the Israeli lobby. Later we discuss Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, his connections to the Deep State and organized crime.

Western Europe is no more

by DAVID BROWN | | April  2, 2017

Western Europe is no more. The seeds of multiculturalism have been sown, and in 10 years, the EU will be unrecognizable. In 20 years, the EU will undergo a fundamental transformation into a Muslim-majority territory.

There are about 510 million people in the 28 member states of the EU, but with 1/3 of EU pregnancies ending in abortion, the economic prosperity is simply unsustainable due to demographics alone. This high abortion rate shows up in the fertility rate of the EU as a whole which is roughly 1.47. A minimum fertility rate of 2.1 is required just to keep the population at zero growth. History and mathematics have shown when fertility rates plummet below 2.1, a population teeters on a demographic cliff with a rapid decline soon to follow. This is called a demographic winter or a collapse of the population. Simply put, there are not enough young productive people entering the workforce to support the society. While the approach to the cliff is deceptively slow, the fall is rapid, unpreventable and recovery is long and uncertain.

So as the traditional Western Europeans kill their children for convenience and a false perception there will be more prosperity for them, they have unwittingly sealed their fate. The new influx of refugees from MENA (Middle East & North Africa) have no such problem. Their fertility rate well exceeds the 2.1 rate (3 – 6 or higher); so within a few generations –if these rates continue– these new European citizens will become the majority, and their culture and religion will dominate Western Europe. Hasta la vista.

The Rape of Western Europe

by DAVID BROWN | | Jan 13, 2016

Berlin, Germany

Berlin, Germany

Looks like Europe is having a Rape-Fest all around and the police are trying their best to cover all this up.   Let us not forget why the refugees are in Europe in the first place, eh? The US and NATO have destroyed Libya, Syria and caused much mayhem in many other countries in MENA (Middle East & North Africa). It’s a massive human tragedy that we created!!! These people have no place to go!! So our overlords created this problem, and now they are making it worse by letting these people enter their countries un-vetted, not knowing a darned thing about them (just like Obama).   And what is not being reported is the massive number of little girls who are being raped by these same people in the Refugee Camps.  What child should have to face this?  Many so-called refugees are in fact ISIS fighters supported by US/NATO that had their asses kicked by Putin.  And now these refugees and ISIS fighters are having a rape fest and scaring the crap out of the helpless, unarmed people in Europe. Next, the European Union will need to come in and save the day. How? By increasing the power of the police state. This is the oldest hoax in the books if you are a government leader. It’s called PROBLEM > REACTION > SOLUTION.  It’s that simple.  You will see this same technique used over and over again and we fall for it each and every time begging our overlords to save us… and they do… at a price.

Get ready for the invasion of Europe at the request of their leaders no less. With leaders like these who needs enemies? Of course the informed know that this is part of the globalist’s plan to usher in their unworkable Utopia of a one-world government. Once the interlopers have decimated what is left of Europe, the globalists will save the day and dispatch these Islamic Pirates to Allah. America, don’t feel too special even though you are protected by an ocean. Your overlords are shipping them in via airplane and through the Southern border. The idea in their own words is to remove the Nation-State and that means you America. Question: Is there enough testosterone left in Europe and America to quell these soft slow-moving coup d’états?

What I know about Muslims

by DAVID BROWN | | Dec 11, 2015

Iran in 1960 - 70s

Iran in 1960 – 70s

I have known many Muslims as friends, fellow students at the university and as co-workers. What I know firsthand is that most all of them were extremely intelligent, well-educated, affable, approachable and friendly. I have spent many an evening with them discussing religion, philosophy, history, and politics and playing chess. All of them were indelibly and unmovably stuck in their religion. None were violent or cruel as far as I am aware. Most had a fundamentally different view of women than most westerners, but some of my best memories are the times I spent with these incredibly intelligent and well-educated Muslims.

I also know that since WWI, the West has been using and abusing Muslims like property of no individual value or consequence. We have removed their sovereign leaders when it pleased us. We have consistently –at will– imposed the cruelest dictators; and redrawn their national boarders without respect to language, culture or religion as though it was our divine right. We have murdered many millions of innocent Muslim men, women and children in cold-blood without a second thought or the slightest tinge of remorse. We have supported the most radical and violent versions of Islam imaginable and spread this radical Islam far and wide for our own geopolitical agenda.

My Muslim friends at the University were terrified of the Shah of Iran and his secret police Savak; both of whom we installed and supported, yet they did not hate me for this and never blamed me.

The solution to the terrorist and the refugee problem is for the West to stop destroying countries in the Middle East like Syria, Libya, Egypt and Iraq and stop installing, arming and supporting dictators like the House of Saud, stop killing innocent Muslims en-masse and stop spreading the most brutal form of Islam the world has ever known called Wahhabism by our continued support of Saudi Arabia.

Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

Yemen Crisis

Yemen Crisis

Same story, different country … seems like a repeat in every nation the U.S. has attacked over the past 12 years.  You may not care about the plight of these poor people in Yemen or about the plight of the folks in other countries the U.S. has attacked without provocation (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Syria), but these war crimes are being orchestrated and facilitated by your own Pentagon under your control. What goes around, comes around and these psychopaths who are slaughtering or causing to be slaughtered these now millions of innocent people across the globe will not have a second thought of turning on you when the time comes. Now is the time to rein in those in the U.S. Government who are engaging in the pointless murder and mayhem across the globe in your name with your tax dollars under false pretenses of the so called ‘National Security’ ruse. Get a clue.

“As you are aware the crisis has reached dire proportions. According to the UN’s own estimates about nine million Yemenis, over a third of the population, are believed to be in dire need of humanitarian assistance, and hundreds of thousands have become internal refugees.”

What if Putin is Telling the Truth?

by DAVID BROWN | | May 18, 2015

F. William Engdahl

F. William Engdahl

Enjoy some brilliant analysis and incredible detail from one of my favorite writers and researchers, F. William Engdahl.   The complete article is linked below.

On the tragedy of Beslan …

“On September 1, 2004, armed terrorists from Basayev and al-Khattab’s IIB took more than 1,100 people as hostages in a siege that included 777 children, and forced them into School Number One (SNO) in Beslan in North Ossetia, the autonomous republic in the North Caucasus of the Russian Federation near to the Georgia border.

On the third day of the hostage crisis, as explosions were heard inside the school, FSB and other elite Russian troops stormed the building. In the end, at least 334 hostages were killed, including 186 children, with a significant number of people injured and reported missing. It became clear afterward that the Russian forces had handled the intervention poorly.

The Washington propaganda machine, from Radio Free Europe to The New York Times and CNN, wasted no time demonizing Putin and Russia for their bad handling of the Beslan crisis rather than focus on the links of Basayev to Al Qaeda and Saudi intelligence. That would have brought the world’s attention to the intimate relations between the family of then US President George W. Bush and the Saudi billionaire bin Laden family.

On September 1, 2001, just ten days before the day of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, Saudi Intelligence head US-educated Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud, who had directed Saudi Intelligence since 1977, including through the entire Osama bin Laden Mujahideen operation in Afghanistan and into the Caucasus, abruptly and inexplicably resigned, just days after having accepted a new term as intelligence head from his King. He gave no explanation. He was quickly reposted to London, away from Washington.

The record of the bin Laden-Bush family intimate ties was buried, in fact entirely deleted on “national security” (sic!) grounds in the official US Commission Report on 911. The Saudi background of fourteen of the nineteen alleged 911 terrorists in New York and Washington was also deleted from the US Government’s final 911 Commission report, released only in July 2004 by the Bush Administration, almost three years after the events.

Basayev claimed credit for having sent the terrorists to Beslan. His demands had included the complete independence of Chechnya from Russia, something that would have given Washington and the Pentagon an enormous strategic dagger in the southern underbelly of the Russian Federation.

By late 2004, in the aftermath of the tragic Beslan drama, President Vladimir Putin reportedly ordered a secret search and destroy mission by Russian intelligence to hunt and kill key leaders of the Caucasus Mujahideen of Basayev. Al-Khattab had been killed in 2002. The Russian security forces soon discovered that most of the Chechen Afghan Arab terrorists had fled. They had gotten safe haven in Turkey, a NATO member; in Azerbaijan, by then almost a NATO Member; or in Germany, a NATO Member; or in Dubai–one of the closest US Allies in the Arab States, and Qatar-another very close US ally. In other words, the Chechen terrorists were given NATO safe haven.”

Stop drinking the ‘Hater-Aid’

by DAVID BROWN | | March 7, 2015

Now I know it is popular to hate the police, the illegal aliens, the white racists, the ungrateful minorities and the Muslims; but I think it is important to pause for a minute, sit back and take in the larger view; or as I would term it, the Gestalt view to see the ‘Bigger Picture’.  Now, are there bad police, bad whites, bbeverage-15706_1280ad blacks, bad illegals and bad Muslims? Yes there are; but that does not provide us the answers we need to certain questions we should always ask when confronted with external forces that are generating strong emotional valences like hate: Questions like 1) who is responsible for generating or orchestrating the hate; 2) who benefits from our hatred; and 3) for what practical purpose has our hatred been ‘genned-up’?

Police:  Yes, they have killed people’s dogs, murdered the very people they are sworn to protect, acted thuggish; they have  shredded the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and yes, they have been militarized by the folks in Washington, D.C.

Illegal Aliens:  Yes, they have broken the law by entering the USA illegally and yes many are committing more crimes once they are here, but Washington, D.C. has allowed and even promoted this.  It is interesting to observe that in the EU,  Muslim immigrants are being used in much the same way as the Latino illegal aliens here in the US.

White racists: Yes, there are white racists, but there are also black racists and Latino racists; but most people are not racist, yet the media love to hype this division between the races; and yes, the current US Administration has been caught red-handed ‘Race-Baiting’ when Eric Holder Likens Michael Brown to Emmett Till.

Ungrateful minorities:  Yes, there are some minorities that have yet to figure out that life is a struggle and that not all their problems are the ‘white devil’s’ fault. Many minorities have overcome the challenges of language and culture to prosper, yet others are stuck in the blame game enabled by Washington DC.

Muslims: Yes, some have cut heads off, committed honor killings against their daughters and sisters, committed FGM (female genital mutilations), destroyed ancient artifacts, bombed people and things and acted like a bunch of brainwashed morons. If you look at pictures from the 1960 – 1970, it was not always this way.

Iran in 1960 - 70s

Iran in 1960 – 70s

Despite reformatting their countries after WWI, Islam was on the path to moderation and modernization, until the US began stirring the shit in earnest according to the ‘Made in America’ strategies cooked up by Wolfowitz, Brzezinski and others.

So, if we drink the ‘hater-aide’ and play into this game, what we have is something called division, never having lifted our heads up to see who has been orchestrating all this hate and division.

It is clear to any thinking person that Washington, D.C. is inflaming racial hatred and militarizing our police; and Washington D.C. is inviting undocumented and illegal aliens into this country ‘en masse’.  So what is Washington D.C.’s role in the Muslim problem? Well, first off they have been involved in regime change in Muslim countries for the better part of the last century. They have created Al-Qaeda, ISIS, ISIL and IS in this century and supported many other Muslim and right-wing terrorist groups though Operation Gladio. Not only have they created these groups, they have armed, trained and funded them; and radicalized them in torture camps strewn across the globe … and they used them to destabilize various targeted countries. Additionally, Washington, D.C. has brutally slaughtered millions of innocent Muslims (men, women and children). Would you expect no hatred or blow-back from this? One fine point on blow-back: It’s not technically blow-back if it was planned.

So we have a common and the proximate cause to all this hatred and division: Washington, D.C. But it is not only Washington, DC but the people who control the vortex of power here in the US of A.

Ignorance Fear Hate

So who benefits from all this fear, Ignorance and hate that produces division? Answer: The Military-Industrial Complex, the international bankers and the power centers in Washington, D.C. increase their relevancy to the protection of the good citizens of these United States of America. Washington, D.C. increases the scope of their power and control, while the individual loses his freedoms as guaranteed by this country’s founding documents.

So now we have the answers to 1 & 2 above: Who caused this, who benefits and a partial answer to the question of purpose. The answer to Question 3 (for what purpose) flows from 1 & 2 but to fully understand this question, we must look at some of the larger geopolitical moves by Washington, D.C. and its controllers on a global basis.

The big moves are:

  1. The rapid bankrupting of nation-states worldwide with historic levels of debt created out of thin air.
  2. The destruction of nation-states though treaties and agreements. For example the EU in Europe destroyed the sovereignty of the duly elected representatives of nation-states and handed over the reins of power to unelected officials controlled by an elite group of globalists.
  3. Likewise, in the Americas, agreements like NAFTA, TTIP, TPP and others along with UN-Agenda 21 have bypassed the duly elected representatives of America and handed over the reins of power to unelected officials controlled by an elite group of globalists.

We can therefore reasonably conclude that the purpose of all this hatred and division is to destroy the idea and function of the nation-state and turn over the power to certain well-placed individuals who seek to control the world from a single fulcrum.

So the question to you is: do you want to play their game? I say no. Rather than drink their ‘Hater-Aid’ against the police, the whites, the blacks, the Latinos, the Illegal Aliens, the Muslims, etc., perhaps we should identify the real culprits and go after them.

Benghazi Deception

stevensGood, fact-based reporting by Jerome R. Corsi  in the article linked just below.  We’re inching slowly toward the truth, but the truth is yet to be told. Missing pieces: Why was the stand-down ordered after the embassy was attacked? Why did the so called rebels who attacked the embassy yell “Morsi sent us!” Morsi like Obama’s half brother Malik Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was installed by the US and the MB as a result of the US-backed MB coup in Egypt only to be deposed by Egypt two months later. The truth is that Christopher Stephens knew too much about the state department and the illegal arms shipments and had to be eliminated. The truth is that these illegal shipments of arms came directly from a CIA cut-out company here in the US. Shipped to Benghazi => Turkey => Syria to be used against Syria’s Assad. The US has been, and continues to use ISIS (aka Al-Qaeda) as a US proxy force to destabilize countries in this region.

Background – Russia and Turkey’s Pipeline Deal

Important article by Joaquin Flores …

Russia Turkey gas pipeline Jan 2015

Russia and Turkey’s Gas Pipeline Deal: Implications for the European Union

Some helpful definitions below  …

TEP: Third Energy Package

OMV is an integrated international oil and gas company, headquartered in Vienna. Its main businesses are exploration and production of oil and gas, natural gas distribution and power generation, and refining and marketing oil

Alexei Miller
Alexey Borisovich Miller is Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Management Committee of Russian energy company Gazprom, Russia’s largest company and the world’s biggest natural gas producer.

Nabucco project
The Nabucco-West pipeline (also referred to as the Turkey–Austria gas pipeline) is a proposed natural gas pipeline from the Turkish-Bulgarian border to Austria. It is a modification of the original Nabucco Pipeline project, which was to run from Erzurum in Turkey to Baumgarten an der March in Austria. The aim of the Nabucco pipeline is to diversify the natural gas suppliers and delivery routes for Europe, thus reducing European dependence on Russian energy. The original project was backed by several European Union member states and by the United States, and was seen as a rival to the South Stream pipeline project. The main supplier was expected to be Iraq, with potential supplies from Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, and Egypt.[1] The main supply for the Nabucco West was to be Shah Deniz gas through the proposed Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline (TANAP).

Shah Deniz energy consortium
The Shah Deniz consortium announced today that 25-year sales agreements have been concluded for just over 10 billion cubic metres a year (BCMA) of gas to be produced from the Shah Deniz field in Azerbaijan as a result of the development of Stage 2 of the Shah Deniz project. Nine companies will purchase this gas in Italy, Greece and Bulgaria.

The Shah Deniz Stage 2 project is set to bring gas directly from Azerbaijan to Europe for the first time, opening up the Southern Gas Corridor.

Countries and regions located in the Levant region (Cyprus, Hatay, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria)
Countries and regions sometimes included in the Levant region (Iraq and Sinai)
Entire territory of countries whose regions are included in the Levant region (Egypt and Turkey)

Atlanticism is a belief in the importance of cooperation between Europe and the United States and Canada regarding political, economic, and defense issues, with the purpose of maintaining the security and prosperity of the participating countries, and to protect the values that unite them.
