SAUDI ARABIA SPURNS US SANCTIONS, SIGNS BILLION-DOLLAR BUSINESS DEALS DURING KING’S VISIT TO MOSCOW

Slap on the face of US diplomacy shows Washington’s waning global influence, rise of Russian power

But a wounded animal is the most dangerous

RT.COM: https://on.rt.com/8p2t

It was the first country the newly elected American president visited on his first foreign trip. It is the country that, along with Israel, owns and controls most of the US Congress not just the White Housel And now it is a country which has turned its back on its American vassals and has joined up with Russia in a slew of business deals signed during its king’s first visit to Moscow.

Spurning the US sanctions on Russia, which were supposed to punish not just Moscow, but also any country trading with Russia, the king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud met in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It was  the first state visit to Russia by a reigning Saudi monarch.

MULTI BILLION DOLLAR DEALS SIGNED

Following the meeting, the two countries launched a joint energy investment fund worth $1 billion. The fund could include investments in natural gas projects and petrochemical plants.

Saudi state oil firm Saudi Aramco signed a deal with Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and gas processing and petrochemicals company Sibur on joint projects in the area of oil refining.

The two countries also agreed to cooperate in nuclear energy, agriculture, information technology; trade, investments and social development.

“We have a vast potential for developing cooperation in nuclear power. Saudi Arabia plans to launch a major nuclear power program,” said Russian Energy Minister and Co-Chairman of the Russian-Saudi Intergovernmental Commission Aleksandr Novak.

“Nuclear power may become one of the basic sources and an extra catalyst for the development of various industries and innovation technologies in Saudi Arabia,” he added.

Relations between the two countries have reached a “fundamentally new level recently,” Novak said.

According to Novak, for the first time a substantial delegation from Saudi Arabia, including about 200 representatives and 85 CEOs of large companies has come to Russia.

“Eighty-five heads of the largest companies flew to Russia to establish links with Russian businesses and expand ties in all areas,” the minister said.

Vladimir Putin and King Salman are expected to focus on extending the commitment to cut crude oil output production, which has helped prop up oil prices.

Which is a 180-degree turn-about-face by Saudi Arabia. Less than three years ago, the Saudis fronted the USled Oil War against Russia which was supposed to bring Russia and the Ruble to its knees (see 2014 OIL WAR’S UTTER FAILURE – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2II). Now the opposite is happening.

SLAP ON THE FACE AND STAB IN THE BACK OF THE U.S.

So much for the US sanctions and the American influence in the world. Washington is losing friends and allies faster than a snake can shed its skin.

With Russia gradually picking off the strategic US “partners” (first Turkey, now Saudi), real or perceived American power is quickly waning. It won’t be long before the Ruble and the Yuan start to supplant the Dollar as a global trading currency. Or maybe we are already at that stage now?

More than any rhetoric out of Moscow or Being, this single gesture by the Saudi king has sent a message to the world – the US is no longer the boss. Washington’s unipolar world is crumbling.

And that’s good news both for the world and for the American people. Because our government has long stopped being “a government of the people, by the people and for the people.” It has become an enemy of the American people;

(see the Truth in Media series of reports AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD AND ITS PEOPLE, Sep 2015 -http://wp.me/p3QU1S-18C, and  – NEW WORLD ORDER UNMASKED, Jan 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-N0).

Except…

WOUNDED ANIMAL THE MOST DANGEROUS

When is an animal the most dangerous?

When it is wounded, cornered and desperate. A wounded animal is the most dangerous when it is fighting for its last breath.

There is much to dislike about Saudi Arabia (human right abuses, brutal executions, lack of freedom, mistreatment of women…). But the fact that the US has been willing to swallow its pride and rhetoric about the virtues of democracy etc., and jump into bed with such an oppressive regime, speaks volumes about how important Saudi Arabia has been to Washington.

And now that Saudi Arabia has stabbed the US in the back, all that’s left is a wounded pride of a jilted oil whore.

Being spurned and betrayed by “friends and allies” is not a position the would-be masters of the world are used to. So look for Washington to become even more aggressive and more unpredictable in the near future.

So take cover instead of rejoicing.

Saudi King arrived in Moscow with 1,500 staff, golden escalator, gold-plated protective barriers and plush carpets

TRAVELING IN STYLE

Memories of Obama bowing before Saudi king

King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia brought a lavish entourage on his first state visit to Russia. As part of his latest trip he reportedly flew in 1,500 staff, plush carpets and gold plated protective barriers to Russia.

The 81-year-old monarch met President Vladimir Putin after his arrival in the Russian capital on Wednesday. He is expected to discuss trade and joint infrastructure projects with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday.

The Saudi Arabia head of state booked out both the Four Seasons Moscow and the Ritz Carlton in preparation for the discussions.

A premier room at the Four Seasons can cost upwards of $3,800, with the top Pozharsky Royal suite only available for booking on request.

Coinciding with King Salman bin Abdulaziz’s visit, the Ritz Carlton hotel, located just 1km from the Kremlin, shut down its entire car park until October 8. The facility has a daily charge of around $50 dollars per vehicle.

The Saudi royal’s entourage includes staff familiar with specific food preparations and how the monarch prefers his coffee. Reports suggest plush carpets were also brought in by Saudi officials to make the stay a comfortable one.

The House of Saud is estimated to be worth around $1.4 trillion, meaning King bin Abdulaziz has a vast fortune to dip into when travelling abroad.

The funds extend to a luxury planes, gold-plated protection and a customized escalator. While on a visit to Japan in March, the delegation of Saudi officials arrived on 10 aircraft.

Around 1,200 hotel rooms in Tokyo were reserved for the group during the stay, while some 500 limousines were also reportedly used on the four-day tour.

REMINDER: OBAMA BOWED BEFORE SAUDI KING

All this pomp and ceremony in Russia and the Saudis’ wooing of a new global partner to supplant the US influence in Arabia reminded this writer of an incident that happened in April 2009, during Obama’s first visit to Saudi Arabia.

In what was possibly the most embarrassing and ignominious moment for a President of the United States, ostensibly the most powerful nation on earth, Obama bowed before the (now late) Saudi king (see the photo).

Eight-and-a-half years later, it was the Saudi king that flew to Moscow in search of a more reliable partner than the US has been. So all this bowing and scraping by Obama was for naught. As was Trump’s glad-handing on his first overseas state visit in May of this year, also to Saudi Arabia.

OIL WAR 2014: AN UTTER FAILURE OF WASHINGTON, WALL STREET

Russia sanctions? What sanctions?

RUSSIAN RUBLE SOARS ON HIGHER OIL PRICES

The Ruble Now the World’s Strongest Currency?

Nearly three years ago, the Truth in Media published an editorial “OILD WAR OF 2014” (Dec 7, 2014 – see an excerpt below). Assisted by Wall Street, George Soros and Saudi Arabia among others, the US government tried to bring Russia down to its knees by forcing the world oil prices to tumble.

Why? Because Russia is the world’s largest energy exporter, and the third largest oil producer (left). The country relies on oil and gas exports for 50 percent of its federal budget, and 70 percent of the country’s total exports.

UTTER FAILURE

Three years later, it is clear Washington-Wall Street collusion did not work. Greed and the self-interests of the energy producers and European and other consumers prevailed over Washington’s foreign policy dictates. The oil prices are surging again, and so is the Russian ruble.

Brent crude prices hit a 26-month high on the news Turkey has threatened to cut oil supplies from Iraqi Kurdistan. This gave a boost to the Russian ruble, which remains the world’s strongest currency against the US dollar in the last 12 months.

So the Oil War of 2014 ended up as an utter failure of Washington and Wall Street.

OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?

December 7, 2014

In the old days of gallantry between the foes, a country would declare war by delivering a diplomatic note to the enemy’s head of state. Nowadays, the New World Order hooligans do it by shooting down an unarmed civilian aircraft.

The world did not realize it at the time, but the shoot-down of Malaysian flight MH-17 on July 17 was the starting gun of a new war between the West and the East (see HOW & WHY BOEING MH-17 WAS SHOT DOWN).  So far, the shooting war has been confined only to the southeastern portion of Ukraine. But the economic war has already engulfed the entire planet.

A TWO-PRONGED ATTACK: OIL & RUBLE

What followed the downing of the MH-17 by Washington’s Ukrainian puppets was an oil price war. Crude oil prices tumbled 35% in the last five months. And Russia was the main target of this attack. Which is far more painful than any sanctions the US or the EU applied against Moscow.

Why? Because Russia is the world’s largest energy exporter, and the third largest oil producer (left). The country relies on oil and gas exports for 50 percent of its federal budget, and 70 percent of the country’s total exports.

A 35% drop in oil prices has deprived Russia of hundreds of billions of dollars in export revenues. Which means the country’s economy has been set back on its heels.

Russian GDP vs oil Russian oil production (updated 12-12-14)

A 35% drop in oil prices has deprived Russia of hundreds of billions of dollars in export revenues. Which means the country’s economy has been set back on its heels.

The oil punch has evidently caught Russia’s leaders flatfooted. Maksim Oreshkin, head of Russia’s Finance Ministry’s strategic planning department, was quoted as saying that, “it is unlikely that we will see a sharp drop in prices, but we are unlikely to see a sharp rise. Most likely, we will see stabilization in the area of $90 per barrel,” Oreshkin said in late September.

Well, so much for Russia’s understanding of its strategic geopolitical position. Check out what actually happened with the oil prices since then.

Break-even-oil-graphic

By flooding the market with their soaring shale oil production (below right), the US oil producers have put most of their global competitors under water. There is not a single competitorMonthly-Crude-Oil-Production left that’s making any money at the current prices, according to the above Deutsche Bank chart, which the Truth in Media has modified to highlight the current situation. 141202105035-american-energy-vs-opec-620xa

U.S. oil production has increased by about 80% over the past six years, from 5 million barrels per day in 2008, to 9 million per day this year, according to this Dec 2 FORTUNE article. As a result of all this fracking and cracking, the US has now become the world’s No. 1 oil producer, surpassing both Saudi Arabia and Russia (left).

PD*7609406 Fracking the Sheiks Earth_Globe Wall St shark frack

So score one knockdown for the Washington-Wall Street team. But at what a price! Not only is the W-W team fracking Russia and the Saudi sheiks, but they are doing it to the planet that nurtures us all – Mother Earth.

Which puts a new spin on an old saying, “he would sell his own mother”… for a barrel of oil.

Ruble vs Saudi dinar

SECOND PRONG: ATTACK ON RUBLE

The oil war escalated in recent days to a massive investor attack on the Russian ruble, which lost 40% against the dollar this year. And George Soros’ fingerprints seem to be EI-CK409_Nigeri_9U_20141202131508all over it. This Hungarian-born Wall Street shark is credited with bringing down the British pound and the Bank of England 22 years ago while making over a billion pounds for himself by short-selling.

(To learn more about Soros, check out this May 2004 Newsmax article by Richard Poe – “George Soros’s Coup” – SorosCover and SorosStory – PDFs, as well as the “Rape of Russia Explained by Anne Williamson” – including her 1999 testimony before Congressional Committee on Banking and Financial Services).

Why do we think Wall Street engineered this attack on the ruble in collusion with Washington?

Because if the drop in the oil prices were the only reason behind it, the Saudi dinar would have tumbled down proportionately as well.  Yet if you look at the above chart, you will see that the dinar has been rising at the same time as the ruble was being gutted. Which suggests that the Saudis are also playing on the W-W team.

All of the which seems to carry Soros’ fingerprints. It is a well known fact that this Wall Street tycoon has been practically running the State Department during the Clinton administration. After all, at his own website, Soros is practically calling for Europe to wage war on Russia, and for the IMF to finance it:

Europe is facing a challenge from Russia to its very existence… All available resources ought to be put to work in the war effort even if that involves running up budget deficits (see “Wake Up, Europe” by George Soros, October 22, 2014).

And when Soros speaks, White House listens. Especially when a Democrat is in residence.

Whether or not Soros was involved, score the second knockdown for the Wall Street-Washington team. Which is too bad for them. Because that one seems to have finally rung some alarm bells in Moscow.

Let Sleeping Bear Lie: from rigs to rockets

Worse for the W-W team, they have not learned from Napoleon or Hitler to let the sleeping bear lie. Their belligerent actions have served as a wake-up call to to the Russian bear.

In his annual address to Duma on Dec 4, the Russian parliament, president Putin Putin Moscow 12-04-14issued a stern warning to Washington and its EU vassals (click here for highlights of his speech):

“We should not forget the lessons of the past,” Putin said, “Just like Hitler failed with his misantrophic ideas, he failed to destroy Russia — everyone should remember how this ends… no one will be able to get a military edge over Russia.”

So there you go… the war canvas has just widened from oil rigs to nuclear launchpads.

“The U.S. and its allies are seeking to change the regime in Moscow through sanctions and attacks on the ruble and the oil price,” Russia’s spy chief Mikhail Fradkov, said this week (see Russian Spy Chief Blames U.S., EU for Ruble, Oil Price Collapse, Bloomberg, Dec 4).

And that will never happen (see PUTIN: U.S. WILL NEVER SUBDUE RUSSIA, NOV 19, 2014).

MOTHER EARTH BIGGEST LOSER

Meanwhile, the business media, like the FORTUNE magazine (Dec 2), are starting to tally the winners and losers in the current oil war. And they figure that the American consumer is among the winners.

Indeed, the gas prices at the pump have finally started to drop. But not before the oil companies gouged every last penny from the American consumer during the high travel season.

B33LnMaIgAAtKyt oil production price tverberg-estimate-of-future-energy-production-1

The average price for regular gas at pumps across America over Thanksgiving two-dollar-gas-12-03-14weekend was about $2.80 — the lowest in four years and 50 cents below last year’s average, according to AAA. Some states are even likely to see prices below $2 per gallon.

Indeed, there is already at least one station in Oklahoma City that was selling its gas for $1.99 per gallon this week (right). Compare that to over $9 per gallon in Norway, also an oil producing nation.

So it’s all goodness, right? Wrong. Because there is no free lunch. Cheaper gas will bring greater subsidies for fossil fuel companies, lower demand for renewable energy provides, like solar or wind, and more pollution all around.

So we may be spending less at the gas pump, but will be choking on cheaper gas as well.

Finally, the greatest travesty. This oil production boom in our country was made possible by fracking, a new method of extraction that ravages Mother Earth, poisons our water supply, and increases risk of earthquakes. And that’s even before considering the risk of nuclear holocaust when the oil war morphs into a shooting one. 

Is that the kind of “winners” we want to be?

Not this writer. So here’s a big thumb-down for this Wall Street-Washington war on Russia. Because its endgame is a war against Mother Earth.

Ron Paul: ‘US provoking war with Russia, could result in total destruction’

Former congressman Ron Paul has lashed out at the resolution the House passed Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 10.38.25 AMagainst Russia, branding it “one of the worst pieces of legislation ever.” It could even pave the way for a potential war with Russia, as it was with Iraq, he warns.

Resolution 758 strongly condemns the actions of Russia under Vladimir Putin, for what it describes as a policy of “aggression against neighboring countries,” in a motion that describes Moscow’s political and economic domination in the region.

However, Ron Paul says the bill was nothing but “16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush.”

“THE RAPE OF RUSSIA” – UNDER BORIS YELTSIN – ONE OF THE GREATEST HEISTS IN HISTORY

To understand why Wall Street and Washington hate Putin, see the following 4-part series of articles by Anne Williamson, former Moscow Wall Street Journal correspondent, and author of the book “THE RAPE OF RUSSIA“.

It was Putin who put a stop to the looting of his country when he took over as Russia’s president in 2000. During Yeltsin’s 9 years in power (1991-2000), greedy western “investors,” i.e., Wall Street sharks, and their boots on the ground, the Russian oligarchs, had absconded with over $100 billion of Russia’s assets. It was one of the greatest heists in history.

Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa, who headed the House Banking Committee, announced on Sept. 1, 1999 that the Russia scandal could prove to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.”

Based on preliminary inquiries, Leach declared that he was “very confident” that at least $100 billion had been laundered out of Russia, an unknown portion of which may have been divert- ed from the International Monetary Fund and other foreign aid loans (see SorosStory – PDF).

“CATASTROPHIC” DROP OF RUBLE RINGS ALARM BELLS ACROSS RUSSIA

Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 1.29.23 PM

Nine days ago, the Truth in Media published an essay on oil and ruble war Wall Street is carrying out against Russia (see OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?, Dec 7). Since that time, the oil prices have dropped further, while the ruble seems to be in a free fall.

Timothy Ash at London-based Standard Bank described the ruble’s fall as “the most incredible currency collapse I think I have ever seen in the 17 years in the market, and 26 years covering Russia” (Huffington Post, Dec 16).

The ruble came under intense selling pressure Tuesday, falling at one point by a catastrophic 20 percent to a new historic low, despite a massive pre-dawn interest rate hike from Russia’s Central Bank, the Huffington Post reported today. Russian officials were clearly rattled even though state television urged citizens not to panic.

“The situation is critical,” Deputy Central Bank chairman Sergei Shvetsov was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying. “We could not have imagined what is happening in our worst dreams.”

The Central Bank’s surprise decision to raise the interest rate to 17 percent from 10.5 percent in the middle of the night Tuesday appeared to be a desperate attempt to prop up the troubled currency. The ruble has fallen sharply in recent weeks and is down more than 60 percent since January, due to sinking oil prices as well as the impact of Western sanctions imposed over Russia’s involvement in Ukraine’s crisis.

The ruble’s collapse has spurred ordinary Russians to rush out and buy imported products such as fridges and cars, since inflation is making those items more expensive daily. It is also likely to heap pressure on President Vladimir Putin, despite his wide popular support.

The ruble traded at 72 per dollar late Tuesday afternoon — a modest improvement from earlier, when it hit 78.5 to the dollar.

Wall Street Pyrrhic Victory: Ruble’s Freefall Actually Helps Russia’s Most Important Industry

So it looks like Wall Street is winning in its war on Russia?

7471b4d9-9409-4cff-9a29-671b62a27ecc-620x338 mix-ruble-notes ipqfBNSLvSxA

Well, looks can be deceiving. Because so far, this has been a “Phyrrhic victory” for boys and girls in pin-striped suits. Wall Streeters are cutting off their own noses to spite themselves. And to please their Washington detachment. Alas, that’s “fool’s gold.”

The reason is that the ruble’s freefall is actually helping Russia most important industry – oil and gas (see Ruble Freefall Helps to Shield Russia’s Most Important Industry, Bloomberg, Dec 16). Because the oil prices in US dollars have been also dropping by about as much as the ruble.

Today, after dropping below $60, the Brent price then fell to $58.50 a barrel, before recovering slightly to $59.01 (see BBC News report, Dec 16). They are now down almost 50% since June.

year-to-date-change-in-brent-crude-oil-price-in-dollars-in-rubles_chartbuilder

Not so in rubles, as you can see from the above chart.

So while Russia’s plunging currency is becoming a growing concern for policy makers in Moscow, the benefits for the Treasury are swelling as it receives more and more rubles for each dollar of oil export revenue.

ipqfBNSLvSxA

The CHART OF THE DAY shows that Brent crude sold for an average 3,759 rubles a barrel this year, the most on record, even after the mean dollar price of $101.74 dropped to the lowest since 2010.

Russia’s fiscal accounts are benefiting from this year’s more than 40 percent decline in the ruble as it kept pace with a similar slide in oil, which is priced in dollars. The government’s budget surplus is 1.27 trillion rubles ($23 billion) through November, compared with 600 billion rubles in the same period last year and 789 billion rubles in 2012, according to Finance Ministry data. It was 1.34 trillion in 2011.

Oops… maybe the Wall Street financial wizards should retake their Harvard or Wharton MBA classes.

As for the Washington “experts,” by now they are probably used to having the market plaster egg on their faces.

In his 3-hour annual press conference in Moscow today, Russian president Vladimir Putin said that Saudi Arabia and the US might have conspired to lower oil prices to harm Russia (and Iran – see Guardian, Dec 18).

And here’s what the Truth in Media said about that 11 days ago (an excerpt from the Truth in Media Dec 7-story “OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?” (above http://wp.me/p3QU1S-F0):

Because if the drop in the oil prices were the only reason behind it, the Saudi dinar would have tumbled down proportionately as well.

UPDATED JUNE 15, 2015

It’s interesting to see how often one’s pure intuition gets confirmed later by new revelations and facts. This is what I wrote about Soros and Russia over six months ago (OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?
DEC 7, 2014):
 
“And George Soros’ fingerprints seem to be all over it. This Hungarian-born Wall Street shark is credited with bringing down the British pound and the Bank of England 22 years ago while making over a billion pounds for himself by short-selling.”
 
Today, June 15, 2015, Mint Press revealed the following leak about Soros…

LEAKED: GEORGE SOROS ‘PUPPET MASTER’ BEHIND UKRAINIAN REGIME, TRAILS OF CORRUPTION REVEALED

 
Hacked emails also reveal Soros’ machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union in a scheme where, if he succeeds, he could win billions in the plunder of Ukraine assets. All, of course, would be at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.
 
By Mint Press News Desk | June 15, 2015
 
Rarely does the world get a true look inside the corrupt world of Western oligarchs and the brazen manipulations they use to enhance their fortunes at the expense of the public good.
 
The following comes from correspondence of the Hungarian-born billionaire, now naturalized American speculator, George Soros. The hacker group CyberBerkut has published online letters allegedly written by Soros that reveal him not only as puppet master of the US-backed Ukraine regime. They also reveal his machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union in a scheme where, if he succeeds, he could win billions in the plunder of Ukraine assets. All, of course, would be at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.
 
What the three hacked documents reveal is a degree of behind-the-scene manipulation of the most minute details of the Kiev regime by the New York billionaire.
 
In the longest memo, dated March 15, 2015 and marked “Confidential” Soros outlines a detailed map of actions for the Ukraine regime. Titled, “A short and medium term comprehensive strategy for the new Ukraine,” the memo from Soros calls for steps to “restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement.” To do the restoring, Soros blithely notes that “General Wesley Clark, Polish General Skrzypczak and a few specialists under the auspices of the Atlantic Council [emphasis added—f.w.e.] will advise President Poroshenko how to restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement.”
 
Soros also calls for supplying lethal arms to Ukraine and secretly training Ukrainian army personnel in Romania to avoid direct NATO presence inUkraine. The Atlantic Council is a leading Washington pro-NATO think tank.
 
Notably, Wesley Clark is also a business associate of Soros in BNK Petroleum which does business in Poland. safe_image
 
Clark, some might recall, was the mentally-unstable NATO General in charge of the 1999 bombing of Serbia who ordered NATO soldiers to fire on Russian soldiers guarding the Pristina International Airport. The Russians were there as a part of an agreed joint NATO–Russia peacekeeping operation supposed to police Kosovo. The British Commander, General Mike Jackson refused Clark, retorting, “I’m not going to start the Third World War for you.” Now Clark apparently decided to come out of retirement for the chance to go at Russia directly.

Ruble vs Saudi dinar

WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION NOW AS RUSSIA WAS IN 1917; WILL THE OUTCOME BE THE SAME?

NEW GENERATION OF SAME BANKERS ARE FUNDING AND INCITING THE “AMERICAN NEO-COMMUNIST INSURRECTION” AS THEY DID THE “RUSSIAN COMMUNIST REVOLUTION”

LIKE JACOB SCHIFF IN 1917, SOROS IS THE FRONT MAN OF THE “HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD”

History is repeating itself. Unfortunately. What the communist mob did to Russia in 1917, led my Lenin and Trotzky, and financed by the Rothschilds through Jacob Schiff, a New York banker, the neo-communist thugs financed by George Soros, another front man of the House of Rothschild, are trying to do in America – carry out an American Neo-Communist Insurrection (see (see “George Soros Funded by the House of Rothschild” – https://goo.gl/jDJ4gw).

Let me repeat – an American Neo-Communist Insurrection.

CommunistParty

And just like the Russian Tsar Nicholas II was their target one hundred years ago, now they are aiming to remove a democratically-elected American president from office.

Like Nicholas, like Donald…

So why has George Soros not been arrested and charged with treason and sedition under the 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES? (and others – see below).

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating and arresting international criminals like Soros instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating these international criminals, and their domestic terrorists, instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, Trump had better start taking his enemies head on.  Lest he wants to end up like Tsar Nicholas and his family.  God forbid.


TRUMP BLASTS BOTH SIDES IN CHARLOTTESVILLE RIOTS

The president seems to have regrown his “cojones” which he lost when he signed the new Russia sanctions legislation in early August. He was quite combative in a White House press conference on Aug 15 with a crowd of belligerent and disrespectful lamestream media attack dogs.

This Guardian video is a 3.5 min compilation of Donald Trump’s comments:

https://www.theguardian.com/global/video/2017/aug/15/trump-blames-both-sides-for-charlottesville-video

Screen Shot 2017-08-16 at 8.04.34 AM

Keep in mind that this London daily – the Guardian – as an “alt-left” liberal newspaper. So if you read their article after watching the video and hearing the president’s comments from his own mouth, you will see how such dishonorable media distort the news and package their lies and deceptions with omissions and false labels. Which is why I NEVER read their articles for news content, only for extreme “alt-left” views.

PROFESSIONAL TROUBLE-MAKERS IMPORTED TO CREATE CHAOS AND VIOLENCE, AGAIN JUST LIKE IN RUSSIA IN 1917

During the last year or so, there has been an overwhelming amount of evidence that the thugs who tried to disrupt the anti-Trump rallies and other public events across America were paid professional trouble makers. And the evidence points to George Soros as the Insurrectionist-in-Chief.

Take Maile Hampton, for example, aka KwameKahlo on Twitter. She is a self-described “Marxist Leninist.” And she has been seen and photographed at protests all over California during the Election 2016, and even in Mexico.

Here’s an excerpt from this story – ‘RENT-A-MOB’ ZEALOT CAUGHT RED-HANDED AT TRUMP RIOT – http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/rent-a-mobs-targeting-trump-rallies/

“In the span of only 10 days, Hampton appeared at multiple protests. She was at one against University of California, Davis, Chancellor Linda Katehi, then two days later appeared in Mexico protesting labor conditions for Mexican farm workers.

A week later, she was seen at the California State Capitol on behalf of the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (a former ACORN group), protesting in favor of increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Anti-Trump protesters in New York reportedly admitted they answered ads on Craigslist and were being paid to protest Trump.

Writing in the Daily Caller in March, Trump supporter Roger Stone said, “I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement … Several admitted answering a Craigslist ad paying $16 an hour for protesters.”

You can also see these ads on Craigslist in Wisconsin and in Washington (state) soliciting “women, students and minorities” to come and demonstrate at $15-$20 per hour.

NEO-COMMUNIST MOB BURN US FLAG WHILE CHANTING, “BURN BABY, BURN!”

In this video, filmed and published at the WND web site in April 2016, Maile Hampton was filmed in Burlingame, California, at another anti-Trump rally that turned violent, burning the American flag and screaming over a loudspeaker at reporters, “Bourgeois media, get the f–k out!”

http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/rent-a-mobs-targeting-trump-rallies/ [watch the video embedded in this story]

Up until now, we had been seeing such scenes – burning of American flags – mostly in overseas countries, typically by Islamic extremists. Well, now  such disgusting acts are being perpetrated by our domestic terrorists funded by Soros & Co.  Watch how they are also shoving and screaming obscenities and the reporter who was filming this event.

Worse, these “rent-a-mob” thugs are getting away with such animalistic behavior without any police intervention. Which makes the police also complicit in this Neo-Communist American Insurrection.


 

BERKELEY PROTESTS TURN VIOLENT

On Feb 1, 2017, anti-Trump protests at the University of California Berkeley campus also turned violent.  Here’s an excerpt from a CNN report…

“Black-clad protesters wearing masks threw commercial-grade fireworks and rocks at police. Some even hurled Molotov cocktails that ignited fires. They also smashed windows of the student union center on the Berkeley campus where the Yiannopoulos event was to be held.

The violent protesters tore down metal barriers, set fires near the campus bookstore and damaged the construction site of a new dorm. One woman wearing a red Trump hat was pepper sprayed in the face while being interviewed by CNN affiliate KGO. “

Here’s a video report filmed that night. Watch how an innocent bystander gets clubbed and beaten by these thugs.

[CNN report]


 

“THEY ARE FASCISTS,” SAYS YOUNG MAN, AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER WHO WAS BEATEN AT BERKELEY

Asked by cameraman filming this scene, “hey man, why are they attacking you? What did you say to them?”

The young man just shrugs and says, “Nothing. They are fascists. They are Antifa fascists.”

Actually, they were Neo-Communists, members of the Soros Red Brigade. Except that they wore black, like the fascists. Besides, what’s the difference? Fascists, communists… they all used the same violent methods to grab and hold on to power.

Here, you can watch this video for yourself…

Still, the police did not arrest any rioters that night. So back to their complicity.

THIS IS HOW RONALD REAGAN DEALT WITH BERKELEY HOOLIGANS IN 1969

By contrast, when similar protests broke out at Berkeley, a notoriously leftist “liberal” university, in May 1969, the aftermath was quite different. Back then, Ronald Regan was the California governor. Reagan would not pussyfoot around his enemies as Trump has been doing so far.

He declared a state of emergency and sent in 2,200 National Guard troops to “use whatever methods they choose” to restore order. And that’s what they did.

Over the next several days, police and troops arrested nearly 1,000 people, including 200 for felonies, while 500 were booked at the local jail.

And now, more trouble is brewing again in the Bay Area, with the politicians and the police again siding with the leftist Neo-Communists, while labeling the patriots trying to exercise free speech as “white supremacists.”


Here’s the latest example…

TROUBLE BREWING IN SAN FRANCISCO

THE NEWS: Following the violence last weekend at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, San Francisco’s city, state and federal officials today sent a strong message to organizers of an alt-right rally planned for later this month at Crissy Field.

“No, you are not welcome in San Francisco,” Board of Supervisors president London Breed said. “You are not welcome here, don’t come to San Francisco, we are going to do everything we can to stop you.”

Breed today joined Mayor Ed Lee and police Chief Bill Scott in sending a letter to the National Park Service expressing “outrage” over its decision to grant a permit to the group “Patriot Prayer” for an Aug. 26 rally. The park service has jurisdiction over Crissy Field, which is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

SF Officials Seek To Pull Welcome Mat For Planned Alt-Right Rally At Crissy Field

 

 

ALTZAR COMMENT: So in other words, our “liberal” politicians are trying block free speech in this country on account of possible trouble which the violent Soros-financed Neo-Communist professional thugs are causing. And anybody who disagrees with their views is automatically called a “white supremacist” or a “neo-Nazi.”

And when the violence breaks out, it is also automatically blamed by them and the corrupt lamestream media on peaceful demonstrators who are simply exercising their right to have their voices heard, as guaranteed by the American Constitution.

So if the establishment politicians and the police side with the violent left-wing mobsters, what does that make the politicians?

CRIMINALS, of course. Who should be prosecuted locked up as co-conspirators for aiding and abetting the violent mobs in what is rapidly starting to look like a nationwide American Insurrection by the Neo-Commies.

SIMILARITIES BETWEEN RUSSIA 1917 AND AMERICA 2017 ARE UNMISTAKABLE

In short, history is repeating itself.  What the communist mob did to Russia in 1917, the neo-communist thugs financed by George Soros, another front man of the House of Rothschild, are trying to do in America – carry out an American Neo-Communist Insurrection.

Lenin and Trotzky were smuggled into Russia from abroad on Apr 16, 1917 and May 4, 1917 respectively, and financed by the Rothschilds through Jacob Schiff, a New York banker. Lenin and Trotzky, along with several hundred Jews from New York and Europe who arrived with them, were to raise hell and start a revolution. Which they did. And won.

And just like the Russian Tsar Nicholas II was their target one hundred years ago, now Soros and the House of Rothschilds are aiming to remove a democratically-elected American president from office (see “George Soros Funded by the House of Rothschild” – https://goo.gl/jDJ4gw).

Like Nicholas, like Donald…

So why has George Soros not been arrested and charged with treason and sedition under the 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES?

 

 

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating these international criminals, and their domestic terrorists, instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

Here are some of the US Codes under which Soros & Co. could and should be charged:

18 USC : Sec’s: 1961.et seq RICO statutes; 2381 TREASON; 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection; ; 2384 Seditious conspiracy; 2385 Advocating the overthrow of government ; 871 Threat against the President and Successors; 2332b acts of terrorism transcending National Boundaries ; 2339b , A.B.C.D Providing Material Support to terrorists…Note : failure to provide Remedy by the Agent in Charge places hm in liability for 18 USC Sec 4 Misprision of Felony and 18 USC Sec 2382 Misprision of TREASON.

Meanwhile, Trump had better start taking his enemies head on.  Lest he wants to end up like Tsar Nicholas and his family.  God forbid.

ANTI-WHITE VIOLENT ORGIES ARE CONTINUING ACROSS THE COUNTRY

https://on.rt.com/8kch

The Antifa, BLM and other leftist groups claim to be against fascism yet behave like the Nazi thugs

Anti-white violent orgies are continuing across the country. On Saturday, it was Charlottesville. Yesterday, it was Seattle. Today, a senseless demolition of a 93-year old monument in Durham, NC, honoring Confederate soldiers grabbed the headlines.

These thugs cheered like sports fans when the statue crashed down to the ground and broke up. And they engaged in a senseless violence against an inanimate object, kicking the sculpture of the unknown Confederate soldier on the ground.

As I watched these images and the video clips from the Durham event, I could not help but think of the book-burning by similar organized Nazi mobs in Germany. They burned 20,000 books on that night. As if that could erase the history and the enlightenment which these books contained.

Bebelplatz_looking_South

The date was May 10, 1933. The place – the expansive Bebelplatz square in the heart of Berlin.

Take a look at these images taken today in Durham and in 1933 in Berlin. And then ask yourself…

WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO?

The people who preach against Hate,
Are practicing Hate.
The people who say they are against Fascism,
Are acting like the Fascists.
The people who say they are against racism,
Are acting like the Racists.
The people who say Black Lives Matter (and they do, of course),
Are disrespecting other people’s lives.
The people who are in charge of enforcing the law and order,
Are actually abusing both and inciting violence.

Is that the kind of America we want?

Hell, no.

If our Founding Fathers were to see this country today, they’d be turning in their graves. For these so-called “leftists” and “liberals” are destroying the very things they fought for during the American Revolution.

So how do we get our country and our freedom back?


WHY WE SHOULD CARE TODAY ABOUT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI

WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION NOW AS THE WORLD WAS IN THE 1930s

JUST SUBSTITUTE RUSSIA FOR GERMANY, AND CHINA FOR JAPAN, AND YOU WILL SEE WHY ZIONIST WARMONGERS ARE DRIVING US INTO ANOTHER WORLD CONFLICT

SOLUTION: TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Over the last five days, I have been publishing a series of stories and editorials on the subject of nuclear holocaust.

Why?

First, to honor the memory of the 225,000 human souls in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who were exterminated in a most brutal way, and worse of all, for no strategic military reason. The war had already been won. The clock was ticking before Japan would surrender. Scores of American military and political leaders said so at the time.

These poor souls, the vast majority civilians, women and children, died to satisfy the bloodthirsty lust for power by FDR, Truman and their Jewish-Zionist advisers.

The second, and perhaps a more important, reason I have been publishing now this series of articles on the nuclear holocaust is because I see that we are in a very similar situation now vis-a-vis Russia and China as we were in the 1930s regarding Germany and Japan. And those who do not learn from history are DOOMED to repeat it. At their peril, of course.

THE SAME TYPES OF PEOPLE IN THE US ARE HUNGERING FOR WAR NOW

I see the same types of people – the power-hungry, hate-filled rich Zionist Jews – leading the demonization of Russia today, just as their forefathers did it against Germany in the 1930s and against Russia before that (in 1917).  And as their forefathers’ forefathers did it against Russia at the start of the 20th century.

Considering that we now have a eunuch in the White House, surrounded by people who seem more loyal to the Zionist cause and geopolitical interests of Israel than to those of the US, there is plenty to worry about.

“There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump”  (Netanyahu)

Trump Netanyahu Jews

Here’s what I said back in April:

“There is no doubt anymore… Donald Trump is the same as or worse than Ronald Reagan.  “Like Ronald, like Donald, Puppets on String” – my Oct 23, 2016 warning, repeated the day after the election – is sadly coming true.

The New World Order powers that be have surrounded our new president with their loyalists who have managed to turn him in less than three months.  Or maybe he has always been one of them.  After all, it took more than two years for the globalists in Reagan’s White House to turn the president to follow their agenda.”

Add to this explosive mix our corrupt Congress who are also spoiling for war, sticking Russia in the eye with their new sanctions, and we should realize it is time to sound the alarm before it is too late (see A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL,  and “LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING, Apr 16, 2017).

We’ve been there before, twice in the 20th century. And the results were disastrous.

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


Strike 1: Removing and killing the Russian Tsar and his family

THE “RUSSIAN REVOLUTION” WAS NOT RUSSIAN AT ALL

The vast majority of revolutionary leaders were Jews, many imported from abroad

Let’s start at the beginning…

History books today refer to the tragic events in Russia after 1917 as the “Russian Revolution.” There was very little Russian about it. The Russian people were the VICTIMS of a foreign intervention and unconscionable brutality by the Bolsheviks.

Let’s start with Karl Marx, “the father of communism.”  “On both paternal and maternal sides Karl Marx was descended from rabbinical families” (Univ. Jew. Encyc., Vol.VII, p. 289). So Marx was ethnically Jewish. But his parents had converted to Lutheranism.

As for Lenin, the “father of the Russian revolution,” declassification of documents since the collapse of the Soviet Communist Party in 1991 has brought irrefutable proof that Lenin’s maternal great-grandfather was a shtetl Jew named Moshko Blank.

Col. John Beaty, author of the 1951 book “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW). explains the reasons for why a communist dictatorship suited the Khazar Jewish mentality.

In Russia and abroad in the late nineteenth century, many Khazar Jews had been attracted to the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), partly, it seems, because he was Jewish in origin.

The Marxist program of drastic controls, so repugnant to the free western mind, was no obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism by many Khazar Jews, for the Babylonian Talmud, under which they lived, had taught then to accept authoritarian dictation on everything from their immorality to their trade practices. Since the Talmud contained more than 12,000 controls, the regimentation of Marxism was acceptable— provided that the Khazar politician, like the Talmudic rabbis, exercised the power of dictatorship (emphasis added). 

Various elements of this restless aggressive minority nurtured the amazing quadruple aims:

Col. Beaty offers further proof that the “Russian Revolution” was anything but Russian.

In Lenin’s sealed train, “out of a list of 165 names published, 23 are Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German, and 128 Jewish” (The Surrender of an Empire, Nesta H. Webster, Boswell Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd., London, 1931). [i.e., 78% were Jewish].

“At about the same time, Trotsky (Lev Bronshtein, Ukraine-born) arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from New York and joined up with the Bolshevik Party.”

According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State. . . in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian,10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews (i.e., 82% were Jewish). (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

Thus under Lenin, whose birth-name was Ulianov, and whose racial antecedents are uncertain [actuallt his maternal grandfather was a ‘shtetl’ Jew named Moshko Blank], and under Leon Trotsky, a Jew, whose birth name was Lev Bronshtein, a small number of highly trained Jews from abroad, along with Russian Judaized Khazar and non-Jewish captives to the Marxian ideology, were able to make themselves masters of Russia.


Strike 2: Infiltrating both Soviet and American governments intent on inciting war against Germany

RULING RUSSIA WITH AN IRON FIST AND MACHINE GUN

As the decades passed by—after the fateful year 1917—Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their hearts‘ desire. The government – controlled Communist press ―issued numerous and violent denunciations of anti-Semitic episodes, either violence or discriminations.

Also, “in 1935 a court ruled that anti-semitism in Russia was a penal offense” (Univ. Jew Encyc., Vol. I, p. 386). Among top-flight leaders prominent in the middle of the twentieth century. Stalin, Kaganovich, Molotov, and Litvinoff all have Jewish blood, or are married to Jewesses (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW. Also see  “THE JEWS AND BOLSHEVISM”).

LIKE GERMANY, LIKE RUSSIA… PEACE ENTREATIES REBUFFED

Like Russia today, Germany made a number of overtures to the US government and Britain in the 1930s hoping for a peaceful solution.  But the intransigent warmongers would have none of it. The influential Jews in America and Britain were spoiling for blood. Only a total defeat of Germany would do so that they could rule the world.

And rule they did. Because they had infiltrated both the US and Russian (Soviet) governments. And were able to pull the strings of both against Germany.

FDR and his wife empower US leftists, many Zionists among them

When FDR took power in 1933, the leftist Zionists surrounded him with their people so that one of his first acts as president was the recognition of the Soviet Union. They also drove FDR to rebuff Germany’s overtures and join Britain in the war.

British PM neville Chamberlain later said that “America and the world Jews had forced England into the war.”

WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND

“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him. “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword.” (Matthew, 26:52)

But those around FDR and Truman who thirsted for war and bloodshed were not men of the Bible, nor did they care about massacring millions of innocent civilians, including women and children.

By contrast, Christians, like FDR’s and Truman’s chief of staff, Admiral William Leahy, an Irish-American who was the nation’s first five-star fleet admiral, wrote in his diary on Aug 8, 1945 about such “barbarous” conduct of war:

“There is a certainty that it [the a-bomb] will in the future be developed by potential enemies and that it will probably be used against us.” He also objected to the a-bomb’s use for moral reasons: “In being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the      barbarians of the Dark Ages” (William D. Leahy, I Was There, pg. 441).

What goes around, comes around, as the saying goes. Indeed, there are now many other nations which possess such terrible weapons.  Like North Korea.

And then after WW II, these Zionist warmongers also pitted the US and USSR against each (Cold War). Some of them also worked as spies, passing the US nuclear secrets to the Soviets.

But their greatest accomplishment was probably that both the US and the USSR voted to establish the State of Israel in 1948 – the Zionists’ ultimate goal.

EMPHASIS ON “KILL” RATHER THAN “VICTORY”

It would appear, therefore, that one thing the “Semites” (both Jews and Muslims) have in common is a zeal to exterminate the “less worthy” humans of other persuasions – be it other Semites (respectively) or Christians. Theirs seems to be the philosophy of exclusion and separatism, not of inclusion and tolerance. Which is why they preach inclusion and tolerance in America – in the form of globalism and multiculturalism, while practicing exclusion and separatism while – by enslaving the Christians or other non-Semites.

War seems to have suited the purposes of the powerful Judaized Khazars element, dominant in the inner circles of the Democratic Party in America, Col. Beaty says. They regarded with enthusiasm the killing of as many as possible of the native stock Americans of English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Latin, and Slavic descent.

This non-Christian power bloc therefore endorsed “Unconditional Surrender” and produced the Morgenthau Plan, both of which were certain to stiffen and prolong the German resistance at the cost of many more American lives, and many more German lives, too.

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt became obsessed with the idea of killing Germans [and Japanese? Bob Dj.] rather than defeating Hitler [or Japan]. Perhaps taking his cue from his Commander-in-Chief—a term Roosevelt loved—General Mark Clark told American soldiers of the Fifth Army that, “it is open season on the Anzio bridgehead. There is no limit to the number of Germans you can kill” (New York Times, February 13, 1944).

Such a stress on “killing” or “kill” rather than on a “cause” or on “victory” is definitely at variance with the traditions of Western Christian civilization, Col. Beaty says.. It is also costly in the life blood of America, for “killing” is a two-edged sword. An enemy who would surrender in the face of certain defeat will fight on to the end when truculently promised a “killing”—and more Americans will die with him.  (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


 

Strike 3: WILL THE 21ST CENTURY BE BETTER OR WORSE?

The answer to that question depends on whether or not we continue to allow evil people to use religion or ideology to divide us and set us against each other. And this leads to a nuclear holocaust, the carnage of the 20th century may look benign in comparison.

IS A NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST IN THE CARDS FOR 2017?

So is a nuclear holocaust in the cards for 2017? That’s what this Economist magazine cover implies (Dec 5, 2016).

The London Economist, which professes to be a “liberal” publication, actually expresses the financial and political views of the world ‘oligarchs’. The magazine is owned 50% by the English branch of the Rothschild family and the Agnelli Family. The remaining 50% is owned by private investors, editors and staff members.

ROTHSCHILDS’ WARMONGERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

Here they go again… Rothschilds’ warmongers in London are at it again. Stoking the fires of war. This time, with a larger nuclear mushroom with images of North Korean and US presidents in it on this Economist cover.

Date of the issue? Aug 5, 2017 – the day before the 72nd anniversary of the Hiroshima atom bomb that killed at least 140,000 people.

And then they have the audacity to use this GIF (right photo below) as a way to solicit money and subscriptions for their cause?

Have they no shame?

Shame? What’s that. To feel such emotions you have to have scruples.

There’s no such thing when it comes to these warmongers who have been stirring up trouble and financing wars and mass murder world over for over 100 years.

 

So what’s to be done to prevent that?

First, people have to learn the truth about root causes of the 20th century wars. That is the purpose of this series of articles about the nuclear holocaust in WW II.

Second, we need to become enlightened beings who refuse to be manipulated by lies and deceptions of the evil forces who seek to divide us. Like the Rothschilds, for example, and their Economist media flagship.

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Religion has been the fuel of the world leaders’ quest for power and domination for several millennia.

Rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… they are all birds of the same feather. They preach hate instead of love. Even when they profess to preach love for one another.

Religion has been at the root of most wars in the last 2,000 years. Crusades, jihads, other “holy wars” – they are all tools by which the few devious ones manipulate the many ignorant ones.

We have to stop that vicious cycle. We must not allow them to keep on manipulating us into hating and fighting each other. There is only one God and each and every one us is a spark of the Divine. It’s what we do with it that makes us “good” of “bad. And it all starts with that knowledge and awareness.

We don’t need any rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… as intermediaries to be with God and to receive the Light of God.

Logic 101, therefore, would suggest…

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS.

Will we have the wisdom and the courage to do so? The fate of our unborn children and of Mother Earth depends on it


 

UPDATE AUGUST 11, 2017

CHINA WILL PREVENT US FIRST STRIKE AGAINST NORTH KOREA, Government Official Daily

BEIJING TO WASHINGTON: 没有, Nyet, Nein… {NO WAY, JOSE)

That did not take long… for one of the major world powers to respond to US bullying of North Korea, and Pyongyang stupidly taking the bait. This morning, China said “NO” (没有, Nyet, Nein…) to the US first strike.

China will prevent the US and South Korea from carrying out strikes on North Korea and trying to overthrow the leadership there, but will remain neutral if Pyongyang launches missiles at American targets first, the state-run Global Times said today.

“IT ONLY TOOK 2 HANDGUN BULLETS TO START WORLD WAR I” (ALTZAR)

Only yesterday, I replied as follows to one of my FB readers who thought we could get away with it scot-free after bombing North Korea to smithereens:\

“I can’t believe that an intelligent and obviously well-informed man as you are would believe such nonsense – that the US could just obliterate a country with nuclear strikes, and the world would just sit and watch? It took only 2 handgun bullets in Sarajevo to start World War I, remember?”

CHINA SENDING ITS SHIPS IN RESPONSE TO ‘US PROVOCATION’ IN SOUTH CHINA SEA

Meanwhile, the US is continuing to poke its finger into China’s eyes, not just North Korea’s. Two days ago, the US Navy sailed the ‘USS John S. McCain’ (no relations to our “fraud hero”) past an island in the disputed Spratly chain in the South China Sea, US officials told media. It’s the third mission to challenge China’s claim on the territory under the Trump administration.

Again, China’s response was swift and furious.

“The Chinese army immediately sent warships (to the area) in accordance with the law to implement the identification of the US ship and warn it off,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said yesterday.

“The US provocation also forced the Chinese side to take measures to further enhance the national defense capability,” the ministry added.

“THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW

20 YEARS AGO TODAY…

A Book That Will Blow You Away and Your Mind Wide Open

While I was on my bike ride here in Scottsdale (July 27, 2017), thinking about the new Russia sanctions that had just been passed by the warmongers in Washington, what came to me was that I should revisit the book “The Iron Curtain Over America” by Colonel John Beaty. Col. Beaty worked in military intelligence during WW II. So he was an “insider” who was privy to the real story of what happened back then.

I remember that when I first read his account of it 20 years ago, it blew me away and my mind wide open. Because the book revealed who was really behind all these wars of the 20th century, and now also in the 21st century.

I was blown away anew when I saw during my search through the Truth in Media archives that I actually published my review of the book on this day – Aug 4, 1997. Twenty years ago on this day! Only Divine guidance could have arranged for such “coincidence” and serendipity.

So I took it as a sign that I need to share this book with all of you.

The book was written in 1951. I am enclosing below a PDF of the 1969 edition. At the time I read first the book – circa 1997 – it was practically extinct. The powers that be, who own and control most of the US lamestream media, typically Jewish, managed to have it effectively banned from the public libraries. I somehow secured this PDF copy. I don’t remember how. And I wrote several Truth in Media articles reviewing the book.

IRON-CURTAIN OVER AMERICA (PDF)

Since that time, thanks to the Internet, the lamestream media monopoly and censorship has been broken. I discovered recently that this old book is now widely available online, including on Amazon.com.  Here’s an excerpt about it from Amazon.com:

A Book Review (1951)

By Bob Djurdjevic, Aug 4, 1997

The Iron Curtain Over America

By Col. John Beaty

This 1951 book by Col. John Beaty, a distinguished scholar and a U.S. military intelligence officer in World War II, warned Americans about an impending peril: Some 46 years ago, this patriotic American foresaw the threat which a Clinton-type “Amerika” would pose for the Christians in the United States, just as the Soviet state did for the Russian Christians.`

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”

Jesus Christ, speaking in Jerusalem


PHOENIX, Aug 4, 1997 – A book by a former high-ranking U.S. military intelligence officer and a Columbia University historian covers the Zionist/Communist infiltration and subversion of America. It begins with early history of the Jews and ends in 1952.

Here is what some prominent Americans, Beaty’s contemporaries, had said about it:

Senator William A. Langer, former Chairman, Judiciary Committee: “I think it ought to be compulsory reading in every public school in America.”

Lt. Gen., George E. Stratemeyer, USAF Ret.: “I congratulate you on your book and the service you have performed for our country. If my health would permit it I would go on a continuous lecture tour gratis and preach your book and recommendations. My ‘Iron Curtain Over America’ will be on loan continuously and I intend to recommend its reading in every letter I write.

Lt. Gen. Edward M. Almond, US Army Ret.: “It is an inspiration to me to find an author with the courage and energy to research and to secure the publication of such information as you have assembled in order that the poorly informed average American may know wherein the real threats to our Country lurk. Your book is a magnificent contribution to those who would preserve our American ideals.”

Vice Admiral T. G. W. Settle, U.S.N. Ret.: “‘The Iron Curtain Over America’ is a most pertinent and excellently presented treatise on the cancer on our national set-up. “I hope this book has had, and will have, the widest possible dissemination, particularly to our leaders-in Washington, and in industry and the press,—and that our leaders who are “uncontaminated” will have their serious attention engaged by it.”

Lt., General P. A. Del Valle, USMC Ret.: “I am impelled to write to you to express my admiration of your great service to the Nation in writing this truly magnificent book. No American who has taken the oath of allegiance can afford to miss it, and I heartily recommend it as an honest and courageous dispeller of the fog of propaganda in which most minds seem to dwell.”

So if a U.S. Senator and four generals from four different branches of the U.S. military give a book such a ringing endorsement, chances are it’s a “must read,” right?

It is. But we have to warn you – it may also be a “musty read” for those of you who do manage to get a copy. For, the book is 46 years old. We’ve tried to find out what happened to the author – without success, as the publisher, Chestnut Mountain Books, Barboursville, VA, seems to be no longer in business. Considering the author’s age at the time he wrote the book (see the photo below which depicts a man in his 60s), it seems reasonable to presume that he has since died.

UPDATE Aug 4, 2017: Well, thanks to the internet, we can update this review now. Col. Beaty died on Sep 9, 1961. You can learn more about his life here – in Metamedia.

But his work lives on. For, much of what Col. Beaty wrote back in 1951, still applies today. Like the corruption of our political system by the leftist liberals. Or that the globalist U.N.

sympathizers attempts to Or the NWO’s assault on which seems to have lessened, in the last 46 years.

A Short Biographical

The author of The Iron Curtain Over America has written, or collaborated on, a dozen books. His texts have been used in more than seven hundred colleges and universities, and his historical novel, Swords in the Dawn, published originally in New York, had London and Australian editions, and was adopted for state-wide use in the public schools of Texas. His education (M.A., University of Virginia; Ph.D., Columbia University; post-graduate study, University of Montpellier, France ), his travel in Europe and Asia, and his five years with the Military Intelligence Service in World War II rounded out the background for the reading and research (1946-1951) which resulted in The Iron Curtain Over America.

John Beaty (circa 1951)

Col. Beaty, a distinguished scholar and a proud American, spent most of his life, including the five years of intensive research (1946-1951), gathering the information upon which this book is based. Keep in mind, therefore, that “The Iron Curtain Over America” is the culmination of serious research by a respected expert, not propaganda, such as the half-truths or outright falsehoods which the anti-Christian NWO has been feeding us. No wonder Sen. Langer said – the book “ought to be compulsory reading in every public school in America.”

Well… it isn’t. On the contrary. The book was hard to find. Which is why some of you may find this review a shocking revelation. And see what they didn’t tell us in the supposedly “liberal” public school education in America.

FRIENDLY RELATIONS BETWEEN GERMANY AND AMERICA AT START OF 20TH CENTURY

The friendly relationships between the United States and Germany existed not only on the governmental level but were cemented by close racial kinship. Not only is the basic blood stream of persons of English descent very nearly identical with that of Germans; in addition, nearly a fourth of the Americans of the early twentieth century were actually of German descent (Chapter IV, below).

Thus, in the early years of the twentieth century the American people admired Germany/ It was a strong nation, closely akin; and it was a Christian land, part Protestant and part Catholic, as America had been part Catholic since the Cavaliers leave to Virginia and the Puritans to New England.

Moreover, the old land of the Teutonic Knights led the world in music, in medicine, and in scholarship. The terms Prussia and Prussian, Germany and German had a most favorable connotation. (Page 7)

The “Russ” and the “Khazars”-Historical Enmities

The book opens up with a historical perspective of the distant region of the world which we today call European Russia. It explains how the Khazars, “a belligerent tribe of half-Mongolian people, similar to the modern Turks, conquered the territory of what is now Southern Russia.”

In the eighth or ninth century, Khazars’ leader wanted a religion for his pagan people. He adopted a form of the Jewish religion. Thereupon he and about 4,000 Khazars were circumcised.

Also in the Middle Ages, Viking warriors pushed from the Baltic area into the low hills west of Moscow. These immigrants from the North and West were principally “the ‘Russ’—a Varangian tribe in ancient annals considered to be related to the Swedes, Anglos, and Northmen.”

From the local Slavic tribes, they organized (c. 862) a state, known subsequently from their name as Russia, which embraced the territory of the upper Volga and Dnieper rivers and reached down the latter river to the Black Sea and to the Crimea. Russ and Slav languages, though quite different, had common Indo-Germanic origin. They accepted Christianity as their religion.

The “Russ” were absorbed into the Slav population which they organized into statehood. The people of the new state devoted themselves energetically to consolidating their territory and extending its boundaries. The Slavs, especially those in the area now known as the Ukraine, were engaged in almost constant warfare with the Khazars. Finally, by 1016 A.D., they destroyed the Khazar government and took a large portion of Khazar territory.

Relations between Slavs and the Judaized Khazars in their midst were never happy. The reasons were not racial—for the Slavs had absorbed many minorities—but were ideological (emphasis added). The original imported rabbis were zealots for the Babylonian Talmud, completed on December 2, 499. Their successors were in complete control of the political, social, and religious thought of their people. The intransigent attitude of the rabbis was increased by their realization that their power would be lost if their people accepted controls other than Talmudic. It has been frequently stated by writers on the subject that the “ghetto” was the work not of Russians or other Slavs, but of rabbis.

Under the Romanovs of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, there was no change in attitude toward the Judaized Khazars, who scorned Russian civilization and stubbornly refused to enter the fold of Christianity (emphasis added).

When Nicholas I died, his son Alexander II [reign, 1855-1881] decided to try a new way of winning the Khazar minority to willing citizenship in Russia. He granted his people, including the Khazars, so many liberties that he was called the “Czar Liberator.” His “reward” was death. The “Czar Liberator” was assassinated in St. Petersburg in 1881 by “a bomb thrown at his carriage.” Some of the assassins were of Jewish Khazar origin.

The “Russian Revolution” Was Not Russian At All

In Russia and abroad in the late nineteenth century, many Khazar Jews had been attracted to the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), partly, it seems, because he was Jewish in origin.

“On both paternal and maternal sides Karl Marx was descended from rabbinical families” (Univ. Jew. Encyc., Vol.VII, p. 289) (emphasis added).

The Marxist program of drastic controls, so repugnant to the free western mind, was no obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism by many Khazar Jews, for the Babylonian Talmud, under which they lived, had taught then to accept authoritarian dictation on

everything from their immorality to their trade practices. Since the Talmud contained more than 12,000 controls, the regimentation of Marxism was acceptable— provided that the Khazar politician, like the Talmudic rabbis, exercised the power of dictatorship (emphasis added).

Various elements of this restless aggressive minority nurtured the amazing quadruple aims:

  1. International Communism
  2. Seizure of power in Russia
  3. Zionism
  4. Continued migration to America (with a fixed purpose to retain their nationalistic separatism.)

The name Bolshevik (bol|{evik) means majority (from Russian “Bolshe,” the larger). It commemorates the fact that at the Brussels-London conference of the party in late 1902 and in early 1903, the violent Marxist program of Lenin was adopted by a 25 to 23 vote. The less violent Menshevik (men|{evik) Marxists (meaning the minority of 23 who lost the vote), faded from the picture after revolution started in October, 1917. After 1918, the Bolsheviki called their organization the Communist Party.

In 1917, the Germans, realizing that he would be a troublemaker for their WW I enemy, Russia, passed Lenin and his party in a sealed train from Switzerland to the Russian border.

In Lenin’s sealed train, “out of a list of 165 names published, 23 are Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German, and 128 Jewish” (The Surrender of an Empire, Nesta H. Webster, Boswell Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd., London, 1931). [i.e., 78% were Jewish].

“At about the same time, Trotsky (Leon Bronshtein from Brooklyn, NY) arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from the East End of New York and joined up with the Bolshevik Party.”

According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State. . . in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian,10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews (i.e., 82% were Jewish].).

The triumphant Khazars, aided by other “converts” to Communism, strengthened their grasp on Russia by a succession of “purges” in which many millions of Russians lost their lives.

As the decades passed by—after the fateful year 1917—Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their hearts‘ desire. The government – controlled Communist press ―issued numerous and violent denunciations of anti-Semitic episodes, either violence or discriminations.

Also, “in 1935 a court ruled that anti-semitism in Russia was a penal offense” (Univ. Jew Encyc., Vol. I, p. 386). Among top-flight leaders prominent in the middle of the twentieth century. Stalin, Kaganovich, Beria, Molotov, and Litvinoff all have Jewish blood, or are married to Jewesses.

Clinton and FDR: Birds of a Feather

The new rulers of Russia promptly and effectively penetrated the countries of Western Europe, Canada and the United States. Their first spectacular triumph was (President) Roosevelt’s recognition, less than nine months after his inauguration, of the Soviet government of Russia. A lengthy article, “Moscow’s RED LETTER DAY in American History,” by William La Varre in the American Legion Magazine (August, 1951) says the move was arranged by “Litvinoff, of deceitful smiles,” and by “Henry Morgenthau and Dean Acheson, both proteges of Felix Frankfurter.”

Acheson, sometimes referred to as the “Frankfurter’s boy,” was one of Stalin’s paid American lawyers. “Acheson was on Stalin’s payroll even before the Soviet Union was recognized by the United States,” writes Felix Wittner in the American Mercury magazine (April, 1952). Yet that did not prevent Acheson from becoming President Truman’s Secretary of State.

[TiM editor: Switching for the moment back to America of 1997, just as Acheson was a paid lobbyist for Stalin, today we have the likes of Henry Kissinger et. al. lobbying for the Communist China. Add to it a high concentration of Jewish-Americans in the Clinton administration’s foreign policy and defense teams, and one begins to appreciate why we may have greater reasons to worry today about the lives of our children, than did the Americans in the 1930s. Luckily, we have the benefit of hindsight they didn’t have. Forewarned-forearmed? Let us hope…]

Another similarity between the Clinton and FDR is a low regard for the U.S. Constitution which the two presidents had sworn to protect. FDR, for example, made an actual treaty with the Soviets, giving them the right to establish a communist embassy and consulates in the United States, granting full diplomatic immunities for Stalin’s agents, the bloody bolsheviki – all without the approval of Congress!

Sound familiar? Just as the Clinton administration signed the Dayton agreement in 1995, for example, and committed the American troops to Bosnia – without the approval of Congress! And has been cozying up to China in recent years.

It would not surprise us, therefore, if Manhattan’s West Side Highway (now known as the Henry Hudson Drive) became the Bill Clinton Drive in a couple of decades from now, completing a symbolic conquest of New York by the “reds” – from East to West. (The East River Drive, which passes by the United Nations site, was renamed FDR Drive after Roosevelt’s death.)

A more frightening thought, however, is – how many Americans may have to die before Clinton gets his name on a New York freeway? If the nation’s casualties during the FDR years are any indication, we are in for a real bloodbath. The American Christians may be 46 years closer to their Holocaust than they were when this book was written, as the anti-Christian NWO wages neo-colonial wars.]

The “Unnecessary War:” How America PROVOKED the War with Hitler

In a speech before the Dallas, Texas Alumni Club of Columbia University on Armistice Day, 1950, General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower stated that as Supreme Commander in Europe he made a habit of asking American soldiers why they were fighting the Germans and 90% of the boys said they had no idea.

The American soldier is not the only one who wondered and is still wondering about the purposes of World War II.” Winston Churchill has called it “The Unnecessary War.” In view of our legacy of deaths, debt, and danger, Churchill’s term may be considered an understatement.

In late July, 1933, an International Jewish Boycott Conference (New York Times, August 7, 1933) was held in Amsterdam to devise new means of bringing Germany to heel. Samuel Untermeyer of New York presided over the Boycott Conference and was elected President of the World Jewish Economic Federation.

 

Yet, the 1930s economic sanctions against Germany were a benign precursor of the NWO’s murderous economic sanctions of the 1990s, which killed millions of innocent civilians in Serbia, Bosnia, Iraq, North Korea, etc..

Back in the U.S. from Europe, Untermeyer described the planned Jewish move against Germany as a “holy war – “a war that must be waged unremittingly” (speech over WABC, as printed in New York Times of August 7, 1933).

A “holy war that must be waged unremittingly” against the “gentiles?” Keep in mind that was back in 1933, when Hitler was still a relative newcomer on the political map of the world.

THE WORLD WAR II WAS AVOIDABLE BUT FOR WARMONGERING “WORLD  JEWS” (Chamberlain, British PM)

By ALTZAR – commenting on “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW – August 4, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2wY
This war was very much avoidable. As was the use of atomic bombs. FDR/Truman could have dropped the bomb on some uninhabited Japanese island which would have had the same effect on Japanese leaders. Instead,, they chose a maximum destruction of innocent civilian lives. Twice. Once in Hiroshima and on Aug 9 in Nagasaki (another 60,000-80,000 people killed).
FDR REJECTS GERMANY’S PEACE OVERTURES FEARING “DOMESTIC POLITICAL REACTIONS”
In 1937 and again in 1938 the German government made “a sincere effort to improve relations with the United States, only to be rebuffed.” The U.S. Government‟s alleged reason was “a fear of domestic political reactions in this country unfavorable to the Administration.” (Page 31)
ALTZAR: And who was FDR afraid of?
 
“AMERICA AND THE WORLD JEWS FORCED ENGLAND INTO THE WAR” (Neville Chamberlain, British PM)
“With the latter country (Germany we had already declared that “no quarter” economic war recommended by the President of the World Jewish Economic Federation, and now in unquestionably hostile terms our President declared a political war. In his diary, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal recorded that he was told by Joseph P. Kennedy, our Ambassador to Britain, that Prime Minister Chamberlain “stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war” (The Forrestal Diaries, ed. by Walter Millis, The Viking Press, New York, 1951, pp. 121-122). (Page 31).
Today (1997), it is interesting to note that the Muslims use the same hateful rallying cry for their “holy war” (the “jihad”) against the “infidels.” As did the Christian Crusaders against the Muslims a thousand years ago.
TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS
Rabbis, mullahs, imams, priests… they are all birds of the same feather who preach hate instead of love.
Religion has been at the root of most wars in the last 2,000 years. Religion has been the fuel of the world leaders quest for power and domination over others. Logic 101, therefore, would suggest that TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS.

It would appear, therefore, that one thing the “Semites” (both Jews and Muslims) have in common is a zeal to exterminate the “less worthy” humans of other persuasions – be it other Semites (respectively) or Christians. Theirs seems to be the philosophy of exclusion and separatism, not of inclusion and tolerance. Which is why they preach inclusion and tolerance in America – in the form of globalism and multiculturalism, while practicing exclusion and separatism while – by enslaving the Christians or other non-Semites.]

War seems to have suited the purposes of the powerful Judaized Khazars element, dominant in the inner circles of the Democratic Party in America, Col. Beaty says. They regarded with enthusiasm the killing of as many as possible of the native stock Americans of English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Latin, and Slavic descent.

This non-Christian power bloc therefore endorsed “Unconditional Surrender” and produced the Morgenthau Plan, both of which were certain to stiffen and prolong the German resistance at the cost of many more American lives, and many more German lives, too.

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt became obsessed with the idea of killing Germans [and Japanese? Bob Dj.] rather than defeating Hitler [or Japan]. Perhaps taking his cue from his Commander-in-Chief—a term Roosevelt loved—General Mark Clark told American soldiers of the Fifth Army that, “it is open season on the Anzio bridgehead. There is no limit to the number of Germans you can kill” (New York Times, February 13, 1944).

Such a stress on “killing” or “kill” rather than on a “cause” or on “victory” is definitely at variance with the traditions of Western Christian civilization, Col. Beaty says.. It is also costly in the life blood of America, for “killing” is a two-edged sword. An enemy who would surrender in the face of certain defeat will fight on to the end when truculently promised a “killing”—and more Americans will die with him.

[No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a former Russian presidential candidate, as a result of such policies.]

“Where Did Hitler Get His Six Million Jews?”

A Reuters dispatch of March 13, 1951 from Tel Aviv (Washington Times-Herald) stated that notes delivered yesterday [March 12] in Washington, London, and Paris and to the Soviet Minister at Tel Aviv urged the occupying powers of Germany not to “hand over full powers to any German government” without express reservations for the payment of reparations to Israel in the sum of $1,500,000,000.

This compensation was said to be for 6,000,000 Jews killed by Hitler. This figure has been used repeatedly. But if one consults statistics and ponders the known facts, Col. Beaty wonders how it was arrived at.

First of all, back in 1939, he says, there were only 600,000 Jews out of Germany’s 69 million population. The World Almanac for 1940 gives the world’s Jewish population as 15,319,359.

According to The World Almanac for 1949, the number of Jews in the world was 15,713,638. If the World Almanac figures are correct, the world’s Jewish population did not decrease in the war decade, but showed a small increase (emphasis added).

Such wide discrepancies prompted the author to ask the question of “where Hitler got the 6,000,000 Jews he is said to have killed?” Meanwhile, some 5,000,000 Germans were unaccounted for—4,000,000 civilians, and 1,000,000 soldiers who never returned from Soviet labor camps, he noted. [Over 20 million Russians and other Christians also perished in WW II].

But just in case you may suspect from the preceding that Col. Beaty may have been some sort of a “closet Nazi sympathizer,” Beaty also wrote that state controls “may produce a dictator. And once a dictator is in power no one (as shown in the case of Hitler) can chart his mad course.”

Appeasing Stalin

The Prime Minister of Britain, the Right Honorable Winston Churchill, was alarmed at President Roosevelt’s silly infatuation for Stalin and the accompanying mania for serving the interests of world Communism. “It would be a measureless disaster if Russian barbarism overlaid the culture and independence of the ancient states of Europe,” he wrote on Oct. 21, 1942, to the British Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden. Churchill also wanted an invasion of the Balkans, which Roosevelt and Marshall opposed apparently to please Stalin (emphasis added).

Col. Beaty wonders why, except for appeasing Stalin, were the Allied forces devoted to strategically unimportant Italy, the winning of which left the Alps between our armies and Germany.

Why did they not land, for instance, in the Salonika area – a springboard for the historic Vardar Valley invasion route? This route leads without major geographic obstacles through Yugoslavia to the heart of Europe. It would have helped the Allies defeat Hitler without giving Stalin all of Christian Eastern Europe as a compensation. Officially, Gen. Marshall stated to a Congressional Committee that the “purpose” of the Italian campaign was to draw “German forces away from the Russian front.” (emphasis added).

At Potsdam (international conference), Truman maintaining intact Roosevelt’s iron curtain of secret diplomacy, played fast and loose with American honor and security. He agreed to an enlargement of the boundaries of a Poland already delivered by Roosevelt and Churchill to Russian control through addition of areas that had for centuries been occupied by Germans or people of German origin.

 

Some 14 million persons were brutally expelled from their homes with the confiscation of virtually all their property, Col. Beaty notes. Only 10 million finally reached the American, French, and British zones of Germany. Four million mysteriously disappeared. Thus Truman approved one of the greatest mass deportations in history, which for sheer cruelty is a dark page in the annals of history.

[Nowadays, we would abhor such policy as “ethnic cleansing.”]

Warning to Americans: The U.N. Charter is NOT the U.S. Constitution

Patriotic Americans should be warned against spurious attempts to draw parallels between the United States Constitution and United Nations regulations. The Constitution, with its first ten amendments, was designed specifically to curb the power of the Federal government and to safeguard the rights of states and individuals, the author writes.

On the other hand, the United Nations appears to have the goal of destroying many of the sovereign rights of the member nations and of putting individuals in jeopardy everywhere— particularly in the United States.

We must not forget the iron curtain over America, which has blacked out the truth that Russia was founded by the Russians, who were men of the West, men from Scandinavia, whence sprang the whole Nordic race, including the great majority of all Western Europeans, Col. Beaty warns.

Consequently, we should never speak in a derogatory manner of Russia or Russians. “Each time we attack ‘Russia’ or ‘the Russians’ when we mean the Bolshevik hierarchy, or speak contemptuously of ‘Asiatic hordes,’ or identify world communism as a ‘Slav menace,’ we are providing grist for the Kremlin mills,” he says.

Finally, we must not forget that leaders in Russia since 1917 have been not patriotic Russians, but are a hated coalition of renegade Russians with the remnants of Russia’s old territorial and ideological enemy, the Judaized Khazars.

[A final editorial note to the Truth in Media readers: For any of you who are Jewish- Americans, or of Jewish descent anywhere else in the world, and who may be tempted to switch to “auto-pilot” and accuse us of anti-Semitism for having done this book review – don’t!

Nothing would be further from the truth than levying such an accusation at us. This writer is a Serbian-American. During WW II, many Jews were saved from the Nazi pogroms by the Serbs, who often times risked or lost their lives doing it. They include the Jewish-Americans, like Maj. Richard Felman, USAF Ret., whose life the Serbs saved along with the lives of over 500 other American pilots’ (see TIM GW Bulletin 97-07,7/22/97).

Our sole purpose in reviewing this book review was merely to show the truth which our public school system has withheld from us. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”]

PENCE: TRUMP WILL SIGN SOON

PENCE: TRUMP WILL SIGN SOON

So what’s he waiting for?

Meanwhile, the new “Drang Nach Osten” Continues as US pushes Georgia to join NATO

Mike Pence said Tuesday that President Donald Trump would soon sign into law a new package of sanctions against Russia.

So what’s he waiting for?

Of course, the obedient lapdog media who accompanies Pence on his drum-beating visit to Georgia, a former Soviet republic, not the US southern state, do not get jetted, wined and dined on international trips like this to ask challenging questions.

My guess?

Trump is now getting an earful from other powerful international leaders about how stupid and suicidal it would be for the US to start a trade war with the world. So maybe he’s having second thoughts? God willing… though I am not holding my breath.

NEW “DRANG NACH OSTEN,” NATO’S PUSH TOWARD RUSSIA CONTINUING

Meanwhile, Pence’s visit to the former Soviet state on Russia’s southern border reaffirmed the continuation of a Russophobic trend the Truth in Media first identified in April 1995 (see “New Drang Nach Osten” (Push toward East): Taming the Russian Bear” – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Drang.html).

The US VP used the opportunity to push for Georgia’s admittance to NATO during a visit to US troops who are stationed there (did you know we had troops there? I did not). They were participating in joint multinational military exercises “Noble Partner 2017” at an airbase outside Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital.

Back in April 1995, I wrote:

“Napoleon tried it. It didn’t work. Bismarck eventually also gave up on the idea. The German Kaiser and the Hapsburg emperor, as well as later Adolf Hitler, provoked two world wars in this century pursuing the “Drang Nach Osten” (“Eastward Push”) goal. Having caused the suffering by millions of people, including their own, they also failed.rus-ring.gif (44632 bytes)
 
Yet, kicking Russia out of Europe is still the objective of the current U.S. developed, and Washington-Berlin executed strategy, thinly veiled under the “Partnership for Peace” slogan.”

At the time, we also called NATO the New “Iron Curtain” over Europe and painted it back on the map. The updated map shows the new members in olive-drab and the new target acquisitions in yellow.

The geopolitical maps you see here are part of that article. I have just updated them to the current time frame to show the NATO expansion that has taken place since I wrote that 22 years ago.

With Ukraine and Georgia in bag of NATO minions, Washington’s encirclement of Russia would be complete.

YELTSIN BLEW IT

Back in 1995, when I first published that “Drang Nach Osten” piece, I was working as a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator on the Balkans conflicts. During one of my earlier visits to Bosnia (in 1994), I had a chance to share this research and charts with General Ratko Mladic, the top commander of the Bosnian Serb army, and his HQ staff.

The general’s grasped the geopolitical significance of this analysis right away. Alas, his army was too weak by that stage of the war to take on an enemy as powerful as NATO by itself. And its one possible ally – Russia – was floundering.

At the time, Boris Yeltsin, Russia’s president, was on his knees (figuratively) begging the IMF for a loan. Here’s what I said about that:

“On April 12, 1995, the day the IMF finally approved his loan, Yeltsin set the price for “Mother Russia’s” sovereignty – a mere $7 billion! The amount seems like a bargain-basement price which may go down in history alongside some other major give-aways, such as the sale of Alaska by the Russians.”

When Vladimir Putin took over from Yeltsin in 2000, Russia was in shambles – robbed, plundered and pillaged of its assets by the local quislings of the New World Order and western bankers. For a few years, Putin acted in good faith, hoping that he can negotiate with the powers that be of the New World Order.

Alas, Putin eventually realized that was impossible. As Winston Churchill allegedly shouted at one of his ministers who wanted to negotiate a peace treaty with Hitler after Dunkirk, “you don’t sue for peace when your head is in the jaw of a tiger.” [paraphrasing]

And so here we are, the NATO tiger is trying to add another bite to its eastern meal – Georgia. The new Iron Curtain over Europe is spreading to the east.

A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

UPDATE AUG 19, 2017

“THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY IS OVER,” BANNON

Donald Trump’s surrender to the forces of the New World Order is now complete. The last of the “Trump conservative Mohicans”, a lightning rod who infuriated the “liberals” like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and other George Soros neo-commies, has left the White House.  But Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist until yesterday, did not leave quietly.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday (Aug 18) to the Weekly Standard, a conservative newspaper, shortly after confirming his departure.

“We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.” (Steve Bannon: ‘The Trump Presidency That We Fought For, and Won, Is Over.’ http://tws.io/2vSOD2F)

THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY DIED ON AUG 2, THE DAY HE SIGNED RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

Not to split hairs, but actually the Trump presidency died on Aug 2, the day the president signed the Russia sanctions bill, which he himself said was unconstitutional as he was signing it (see A SAD SURRENDER – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2sR).

Here’s what the Truth in Media said on Aug 2:

TRUMP HAS NOW PROVEN HE IS ONE OF “THEM” AND, THEREFORE, AGAINST “US”

“We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs… a White House Eunuch” (Truth in Media, Aug 2, 2017)

Guess that was too much to hope for – that a New York multibillionaire would have the balls to take on his peers, and act as a true populist president in the interest of the American people. Trump has now proven that he is one of “them” and against “us,” the American people.

Shame on you, Donald Trump! The whole world can see now that you are just another impotent eunuch serving the New World Order’s interests.”

The New World Order “deep state” now have Trump in their grip like a python, slowly squeezing the (political) life out of his presidency. If he is not impeached, he’ll be used by the NWO from now on as a useful idiot. Or as an actor who will pontificate on their behalf, as Ronald Reagan had done.

No surprise there. We had warned about such a possibility even before Trump was elected president, and again during the first 100 days of his presidency (“LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING”, Apr 16, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2eS, and “IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN SMOTHER HIM” Oct 23, 2016 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-21q).

BANNON ACTUALLY RESIGNED ON AUG 7

It would appear that Steve Bannon also saw the light in the same way as we did. According to Fox News (see the video below), Trump’s chief strategist actually submitted his resignation on Aug 7, five days after Trump’s sad surrender to our sold out Congress. But the Trump’s war of words with North Korea and Charlottesville events cause the White House to hold back on making it public until yesterday.

Also see this Fox News report… (just the first 4 minutes should suffice).

Among the senior advisers competing with Bannon in trying to shape Trump’s agenda, and his tone, were the president’s daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared, and Steven Mnuchin, US Treasury secretary (all Jews, by the way). Bannon pointedly voiced criticism of those in the president’s sphere whom he considered to be globalists, or liberals (or both), and the president himself plainly bristled over the early attention that Bannon got from the press (including a Time magazine cover, which is said to have particularly irked Trump).

TRUMP: A SAD SURRENDER

Trump signs the sanctions bill

We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs

Yes. Just minutes ago (11:20 AM PDT), I read a dispatch from Washington that indeed, Donald Trump signed this morning the new Russia sanctions legislation into law (see https://on.rt.com/8jcz). And like every lame duck president with a tail between his legs, he added a lament naively that the American people would not notice his betrayal, and how he buckled under to the pressure of the New World Order warmongers:

Today, I have signed into law HR 3364, the ‘Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.’ While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said.

The biggest problem with the bill is that it “encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate,” which will make it harder for the US to strike good deals and will “drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together,” according to the president.

Well, whoopie-doo. If Trump really believes the sanctions are unconstitutional (as the Truth in Media also said last week), why did he sign them.

UPDATE AUG 3, 2017

OUR PATHETIC EUNUCH AT THE WHITE HOUSE IS ALL BLUSTER, NO BALLS

TRUMP, WHO SWORE “TO PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION”, VIRTUALLY ENDS HIS PRESIDENCY BY SIGNING A BILL HE HIMSELF CALLS “UNCONSTITUTIONAL”

Russia’s Prime Minister: “New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power”

The US establishment has fully outwitted Donald Trump and used his administration’s weakness to declare a fully-fledged economic war on Russia, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote last night on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Dmitry.Medvedev/posts/10154587161801851),

The “Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way,”Medvedev wrote.

“This changes the power balance in US political circles,” Medvedev wrote, asserting that the US establishment’s end game is to remove Trump from office.

TRUMP SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY

The first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency have established one fact beyond doubt. He was still an outsider in the corrupt Washington swamp that he had promised to “drain.” The Congress has been thwart him from achieving his promises to the American people by throwing obstacles in his way every step of the way.

So there was no question from Trump’s viewpoint who his ENEMIES are. It is not Russia. It is not China. It is not India. Not even Iran.  It is our corrupt Congress.

Last week, this Congress who has been selling out the interests of the American people to their corporate sponsors for decades, passed a legislation that the Truth in Media immediately labeled as not only unconstitutional, but also destroys dozens of international laws. Yesterday, It is a declaration of GLOBAL DICTATORSHIP by the US.

Trump himself agreed with us and called the Russia sanctions bill unconstitutional. And yet he signed it nevertheless, surrendering to his enemies and abandoning his sworn duty “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said after he had signed the bill.

Which means that in feeble attempt to stay in office a bit longer Trump has decided to sleep with the enemy.

That’s treason all around. Our country is becoming an unconstitutional dictatorship of the murderous New World Order elite.

 MEDVEDEV’S PREDICTION: THEY WILL REMOVE HIM (TRUMP) FROM POWER

The American political elite, Medvedev said in his last night’s missive, is not interested in Trump’s pragmatic approach or the interests of US multinationals who spoke out against any new sanctions.

“New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power. A non-systemic player has to be removed,” Medvedev underlined.

“This legislation is going to be harsher than the Jackson-Vanik amendment as it is overarching and cannot be lifted by a special presidential order without Congress’ approval. Thus, relations between Russia and the United States are going to be extremely tense regardless of Congress’ makeup and regardless of who is president,” Medvedev outlined.

In short, we now have our own White House eunuch. Trump is all bluster no balls. And “the American political elite,” as the Russian PM called them, are once again running the show.

And what a grim show it will be – starting with a declaration of a global trade war and repudiation of normal international laws and codes of conduct.

It does bring back memories of British PM Neville Chamberlain returning from a meeting with Hitler in Munich September 1938 and holding up the agreement which he called “PEACE IN OUR TIME.” And we all know what followed.

So we now have our own Chamberlain. His name is Trump. Question is – will we find another Churchill?

JULY 29, 2017 [start of the thread of articles]

Trump intends to sign the Russia sanctions bill, the White House announced in a statement

That’s the news (http://cnn.it/2haxDRN). And now a comment.

5979f9d2dda4c855098b4567

TRUMP HAS NOW PROVEN HE IS ONE OF “THEM” AND, THEREFORE, AGAINST “US

And now, the betrayal of the American people is complete. And the world’s hopes of peace have been dashed.

Donald Trump is clearly one of “them” – the dogs of war in the Senate and the House who sold out the American people to the New World Order’s “death merchants” and bankers.

In one fell swoop, Donald Trump has been neutered, reduced to another NWO eunuch, having lost control of the US foreign policy. Just like all his predecessors in the last three decades.

Only yesterday, I wrote hopefully…

 

HOW TO DRAIN THE DC SWAMP

(Truth in Media, July 28, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2pn)
“We did not give Congress presidential powers which include making foreign policy. So this legislation is not only invalid under international law, it is also UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
 
That’s why Trump needs to take on all the traitors in the House and Senate head on and veto this unprecedented legislation.
 
Of course, since most of the Congress has been bought by the warmongering Russophobic anti-Trump deep state, they can overturn the veto. Let them.
 
That’s when Trump should consider dissolving the Congress which violated our Constitution with this legislation, and then call for new congressional elections.
 
Trump should then take the case to the American people with a proposed new constitutional amendment or a new Constitution (the latter would be my preference).
 
THAT’S HOW ONE DRAINS THE DC SWAMP. So that all snakes and reptiles are gone forever.
 
If Trump were to do that, he would be fighting not only for the rights and freedom of the American people. He would be fighting for WORLD PEACE. So he would have the support of the entire planet in this noble endeavor.”

 

TRUMP HAS NOW PROVEN HE IS ONE OF “THEM” AND, THEREFORE, AGAINST “US”

Guess that was too much to hope for – that a New York multibillionaire would have the balls to take on his peers, and act as a true populist president in the interest of the American people. Trump has now proven that he is one of “them” and against “us,” the American people.

Shame on you, Donald Trump! The whole world can see now that you are just another impotent eunuch serving the New World Order’s interests.

RUSSIA TO RETALIATE – HARSHLY

Stand by for Russia’s retaliation. Of a harsh kind. Which is what the American warmongers have been pushing for. They want a Cold War II. But what if they get World War III?

Russia will likely retaliate in ways that go beyond the expulsion of US diplomats and the seizure of American diplomatic recreation areas that took place Friday, George Beebe, a former director of Russia analysis at the CIA, told CNN. Russia is likely to more actively work against US interests on the international stage.

“He is in a lose-lose situation here,” Beebe said. “There really are no good options for him on this.” Beebe added that Trump’s signature will confirm to the Russians “that he’s lost control of Russia policy.”

“He can’t not act,” said Angela Stent, director of Georgetown University’s Center for Eurasian, Russian and Eastern European Studies, referring to Russia’s president Vladimir Putin. “He has to show Russia can’t be pushed around by the US.”

As the danger of an escalatory tit-for-tat grows, mechanisms meant to prevent US-Russian confrontation have been breaking down.

WHAT WILL CHINA DO?

So it appears certain now that we are heading for Cold War II with Russia. But there is a wild card here in play that was not there when the first Cold War started in 1947.

That wild card is China, Russia’s close friend and partner in the anti-American BRICS organization. Thanks to the American globalists, China has now become the world’s greatest economic power. And its military might is not too shabby either.

And the new Russia sanctions legislation affects not only Russia, but all of its partners, including the EU and China and India and Brazil and South Africa (the BRICS countries).

If the US warmongers think they can control and overpower all of these nations, they have another think coming to them.

 

Over 500 years ago Nicolo Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) had warned them about that, writing in “Prince:”

“It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out norniccolo-machiavelli1 more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a NEW ORDER OF THINGS (emphasis added).

For, the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order; this lukewarmness arising partly from the incredulity of mankind who does not truly believe in anything new until they actually have experience of it.”

I used this quote in my March 1994 editorial CHINA FOLLIES (http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2oQ). It warned against feeding the Chinese tiger. It fell on deaf ears.

Two days ago, I also said in a Truth in Media editorial that “not learning from history is a terrible thing.” Trump and his cohorts in the Senate and the House are about to experience just how terrible it is. And so are we, the American people.

UPDATE 2: JULY 29, 2017

STARTING A GLOBAL TRADE WAR IS SUICIDAL, PSYCHOPATHIC, MEGALOMANIC BEHAVIOR OF U.S. POLITICIANS

When Donald Trump signs the Russia sanctions bill, he and the Congress will have effectively declared a trade war on the world.

In their hatred of Russia, they and their Wall Street masters, may soon find out that they have overplayed their hand. And that such sanctions can boomerang as quickly and potently as they can be launched. And that the American economy may end up the biggest victim of their suicidal, psychopathic and megalomanic behavior.

The U.S. politicians still seem to live the illusion that the U.S, is the most powerful economy in the world. It is not. And it has not been for about three years now. The US economy has been sliding down the top countries’ list for at least the last three years (see the Truth in Media report, CHINA HAS ALREADY SURPASSED U.S. AS WORLD’S BIGGEST ECONOMY – June 23, 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-Yf).

And that’s something you’re not hearing from our politicians or the lamestream media, are you?

The U.S. economy is only #3 in the world, behind China and the EU, in terms of the GDP’s purchasing power parity. All three of our sources agree – the IMF, World Bank, and the CIA (see the chart).

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 3.27.14 PM

FOREIGN OWNERSHIP OF OUR NATIONAL DEBT

And there is our national debt. It is at record levels – nearly $20 trillion. That’s a number which an average person would find pretty hard to fathom. So let me bring it closer to home.

Our government has mortgaged us – yes, you and I – to the tune of $60,818 per each American. And we never signed or approved any loan applications, did we?

So to whom we owe all that money?

To many entities, both public and private. But the most important part in terms of this sanctions discussion are the foreign holders. They own about 45% of that enormous debt. And Japan and China are by far the biggest holders among them.

 

RETALIATION OPTIONS: “A VERY RICH TOOLBOX” AT RUSSIA’S DISPOSAL

And not just Russia’s…

So now that you know all these economic facts, perhaps you can better understand what Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov meant when he said yesterday that there is ‘a very rich toolbox’ at Russia’s disposal” (see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2pn).

And not just Russia’s. Russia’s economy is closely linked with that of China, India, Brazil and South Africa- its BRIC partners. And it is both geographically and economically tied to Europe, the second largest economic block in the world, after China and the U.S.

When Trump signs this legislation into law, the economies of all of these countries will be hurt. And together, they are several times more powerful than the U.S.

That is why the new Russia sanctions are suicidal, psychopathic and megalomanic. And here’s why…

 

SOME RETALIATION OPTIONS

It may be some time before each country affected by the new sanctions reaches its decision about how to respond, but here are some possibilities.

SCENARIO 1 – TRADE TARIFFS AGAINST U.S. IMPORTS

Let’s suppose China, Russia, India and maybe even some European countries decide to impose heavy tariffs on all or select U.S. imports?

Boomerang! Suddenly the hurt the American politicians were hoping to inflict upon Russia would bounce back and hit the U.S. economy.  The Wall Street bubble would burst. Layoffs, increased unemployment to follow across America.

Oops, didn’t think of that on Capitol Hill and the White House?

SCENARIO 2 – DUMP US TREASURIES, RETURN TO GOLD STANDARD

As you saw, China has been the biggest holder of US treasuries for most of the last two decades. It is still in a virtual tie with Japan. Both countries’ holdings are more than four times bigger than those of the #2 and #3 countries (Ireland and Brazil).  Four of the five BRICS countries are among the top 13 foreign holders of US debt. And they would all suffer if Trump signs the new Russia sanctions into law.

So declaring a trade war against the biggest holders of US debt is both suicidal and psychopathic behavior. It’s like a mortgage holder threatening the bank that is holding his debt and has him by his “cojones.” (Sorry, ladies, I could not think of an equivalent feminine metaphor at the moment). 🙂

 

So what could these foreign lenders do, starting with China? They could sell their US treasuries. And the US dollar would drop like a rock.

Of course, everything comes at a price. That would make their exports to the U.S. more expensive and the U.S. imports cheaper in their domestic markets. That’s where the Scenario 1 comes in – slap the high tariffs on US products to even the scales.

Besides, the US is not China’s largest trading partner. That honor belongs to Europe. And China is Europe’s second largest export market.

1200px-European_Union_China_Locator.svg

So if these countries banded together, they could not only increase their bilateral trade, they do away with the US dollar as the world currency of trade and exchange altogether. After all, that’s what the BRICS countries are already starting to do.

The Russian central bank, for example, opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14 of this year, taking a step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system, and to phase-in a gold-backed standard of trade (see https://goo.gl/3qoYJf).

 

So the world would evolve “back to the future” when gold, something the US bankers could not easily manipulate, would once again be king of world trade.

FDR TOOK DOLLAR OFF GOLD STANDARD IN 1933, NIXON FINISHED THE JOB IN 1971

By the way, that image of the US dollar $100 banknote is not a photoshop. Such Gold certificates were used as paper currency in the United States from 1882 to 1933. These certificates were freely convertible into gold coins.

That’s what made the US dollar the world’s currency of choice. But the greedy Wall Street bankers changed the rules, starting with FDR in 1933. so as to be able to better manipulate the dollar and use is as a weapon in their quest for global dominance.

 

In 1934, the government price of gold was increased to $35 per ounce, effectively increasing the gold on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheets by 69 percent. This increase in assets allowed the Federal Reserve to further inflate the money supply.

The government held the $35 per ounce price until August 15, 1971, when Richard Nixon announced that the US would no longer convert dollars to gold at a fixed value,

Alas, one result is that the dollar is now worth only a tiny fraction of that it used to be (the last chart).

SCENARIO 3 – CONFISCATE AND NATIONALIZE U.S. CORPORATIONS’ ASSETS

This scenario is the darkest. Let us hope it never comes to that. But if the Scenarios 1 and 2 did not bring the U.S. politicians back to their senses, some countries may choose to do what the U.S. government has already done to Russia – unlawfully seize their property in America.

What if some of these countries seized the assets of U.S. corporations? And maybe even nationalized them?

Of course, all hell would break loose in New York and Washington. And maybe that would be a doomsday scenario for WW III.  But it would certainly awaken everybody in corporate America from their smug, self-centered and arrogant attitude toward other countries.

So, there’s much to think about, right? And much that our president and lawmakers have not thought through.

May God have mercy on America, although I am not sure we deserve it.


UPDATE JULY 31, 2017

GERMANY CALLS FOR “COUNTERMEASURES” AGAINST US RUSSIA SANCTIONS

It has started… that trade war, that is, the retaliatory statements are pouring in. First from Austria, then Russia, and today from Germany, too.

“I consider the Russia sanctions imposed by the US absolutely unacceptable,” Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia is expelling 755 American diplomats from its embassy in Moscow.

And today, Europe’s most powerful country called for the EU to retaliate against the US.

New sanctions against Moscow proposed by US lawmakers violate international law and officials in Brussels should consider countermeasures, the German economy minister said on Monday.

“We consider this as being against international law, plain and simple,” Brigitte Zypries told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain.

“Of course we don’t want a trade war. But it is important the European Commission now looks into countermeasures,” she added.

According to the minister, “the Americans can not punish German companies because they operate economically in another country.”

 

https://on.rt.com/8j5d

WHAT WILL CHINA DO?

China has still not said anything yet publicly about the sanctions. Yet when it speaks, it will be the most powerful voice in the world.

Lest we forget, the China and the EU are the world’s most powerful economies. The US is third. Once China decides to enact its own “countermeasures,” it could be game over for the Wall Street and Washington gang.

Sadly, it is the American people who will take it on the chin when unemployment lines start to stretch from New York to Los Angeles.

On the other hand, we did put those Washington traitors into office. So I can’t say we don’t deserve what’s coming our way from the rest of the world.

 

WHY HAS TRUMP NOT SIGNED THE BILL AS YET?

PS: The White House said last week that Trump would sign the sanctions bill. Why hasn’t he? It does not take long to take pen to paper. Is Trump having second thoughts after probably getting an earful over the weekend from powerful leaders around the world? Maybe starting with Putin and Xi Jinping and Angela Merkel?
