Trump’s “secret weapon”

By theUnderground, from around the web

Buckle up boys and girls because I’m about to blow your minds. But please, do not take my word for it. No, instead click the hyperlinks (below) and check my sources. And remember that not all sources are created equal, so you must ask yourselves, is this a reliable, verifiable source or do they have a vested interest in the transfer of this information?

In other words, I’m not making any money from this so I have absolutely no reasons to lie to you. I also don’t have a dog in this race. In other words, I do not support Hillary or Trump and here is why…

Think about this: Trump has been close friends with both Bill and Hillary Clinton for decades. He sought and gained favors from them and, in return, contributed to them as they moved forward politically. How is it possible that, suddenly, Hillary and Bill are Donald’s arch enemies? The simple answer is this: They are not.

That is all part of the hoodwinking of America. We are living in the most corrupt period of our great Republic. Crooked Hillary is the phantom candidate. 

Trump’s “secret weapon”

1.) DARK MONEY: In January 2017, Brad Parscale who previously spearheaded digital marketing for Trump’s 2016 campaign and other top Trump campaign aides formed America First Policies, a nonprofit “dark money” group geared toward pushing Trump’s agenda. 

Parscale told The Associated Press that the group created by Trump confidants — some tied to GOP megadonors Robert and Rebekah Mercer — was a “grassroots group” intended to “go out there and help with the agenda, help the White House be successful.”

America First Policies told the FEC that it spent $1.97 million in independent expenditures and $245,404 on electioneering communications in its first year of operation. But the “political campaign activities” spending it reported to the IRS for the same period was around twice that amount — $4.3 million — and its total spending reported for that period was even more.

America First Policies took an unprecedented step for a politically allied nonprofit: It started using three top polling firms from Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign to produce a steady stream of Trump-focused polls, strategy memos and reports that continue to this day.

The nonprofit America First Policies has a sister political action committee, America First Action. 

Although America First Policies itself does not reveal donors’ identities, the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) traced over a quarter of its funding to major corporate players, including Reynolds American and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), a trade group representing the drug company industry’s lobbying interests. 

New tax documents filed by another pro-Trump nonprofit, Great America Alliance, show it raised and spent around $3.4 million during that period. Unlike America First Policies, which reported millions more in previously undisclosed political spending in its new tax return, Great America Alliance claimed that it “educated voters through direct and indirect political advocacy messaging nationwide within the scope of applicable laws and regulations.” 

DARK MONEY FUNDS NAZI-HATE GROUPS

Juan Pablo Andrade, former Trump campaign advisor and current advisor to Trump-linked dark money group America First policies, spent some time influencing young people at a recent conference.

The conference was for Turning Point USA, Charlie Kirk’s hard-right answer to the College Republicans. And, Donald Trump had praise for TurningPoint USA, tweeting praise for the group as an “ever expanding group of very smart “thinkers,”

According to the 2016 IRS report, TPUSA more than doubled its donations in 2016 from just over $2 million to $4.3 million in 2016. It was seeded and funded by Foster Friess, the same billionaire who funded Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller.

Since its creation, TPUSA has received substantial donations from Friess, Home Depot’s Bernie Marcus, The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, Dick and Betsy DeVos and the Ed Uihlein Foundation.

These fine billionaire patriots are perfectly happy to fund aspiring young Nazis if they’ll help electing people to cut their taxes. That young man is being paid to stir the pot, keep young folks angry and hateful, and especially to elect more Republicans.

2.) TAX CUTS: Remember how Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, another plutocrat, described it last year? “Not only will this tax cut pay for itself,” he said, “but it will pay down the debt.”

We’ll soon be running a trillion-dollar deficit, up 32 percent this fiscal year, thanks to the tax cut. Wasn’t this the sort of thing that roused Tea Party opposition to President Obama — crippling our children with a legacy of debt?

It’s in Trump’s character to deride those without gold-plated bathroom fixtures as inferior. His people, as he said in a North Dakota non sequitur, have the best apartments and the nicest boats. But you don’t need what comes out of his mouth as proof of his class disdain. Look at the two biggest policy initiatives of his presidency.

By forcing borrowing costs up, the Trump deficit contributes to rising interest rates. That makes it much harder for working families to buy homes.

You allow yourself to be an easy mark for the insulting con of this presidency.

Indeed, the $5 trillion that President Donald Trump said his tax cuts would bring back into the country has, according to the Wall Street Journal, been more like $143 billion so far – or 97 percent short of his stated goal. Which is why it should be no surprise that the investment boom all this money was supposed to set off hasn’t materialized either.

Republicans were quite open about the fact that they had to cut corporate taxes or their moneymen would cut them off. “The financial contributions will stop,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., bluntly put it, if they let their tax bill get derailed like their health-care plan had.

3.) LIES MAKE RIGHT: Notorious “dark money” conduit Wellspring Committee gave $14.8 million to the primary spender on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and paid $919,900 to the mysterious LLC that made a $1 million donation to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, according to a new tax return obtained Nov. 27 by the Center for Responsive Politics. 

Wellspring has acted as a conduit for large contributions from secretive donors since it was set up, effectively laundering multi-million dollar donations with no substantive disclosure or accountability.

Despite operating behind the scenes with a name unknown to most of the American public, Wellspring is at the crux of Ann and Neil Corkery’s network of politically active dark money groups, funneling millions from anonymous financiers to political causes they don’t want their names attached to — and doing ostensibly little else. 

One name that is tied to the mysterious LLC is Leonard Leo, the executive vice president at the Federalist Society, an influential conservative and libertarian legal organization.

Trump made his Supreme Court nominee selection of Brett Kavanaugh from a list that was pre-approved by the Federalist Society – a receptacle for the dark money that flows from the billionaire Charles Koch’s network of corporate polluters and democracy-killing front groups that got the Supreme Court to rubber stamp unlimited corporate money in political campaigns via the Citizens United decision in 2010.

According to the Desmog, using data compiled by the Conservative Transparency project, Donors Trust and Donors Capital Fund are two of the largest dark money groups contributing to the Federalist Society. Donors Trust has given $13,494,100 in total while Donors Capital Fund has given another $11,366,368. The two nonprofits share the same address: 1800 Diagonal Road, Suite 280, Alexandria, Virginia. The actual contributors behind those large sums remain anonymous as a result of the structure of the groups.

The Federalist Society has received another $4 million in total from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation and another Koch-related group, the Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation.

NBC reported that outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy “received assurances” from President Trump that if he retired, Judge Brett Kavanaugh — one of Kennedy’s former clerks — would be nominated to be his replacement.

In a 2009 law review article Kavanaugh argued that sitting presidents are above the law.

ON METADATA

“I do so because, in my view, the Government’s metadata collection program is entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment,” Kavanaugh wrote.

Kavanaugh went further, saying that even if the Section 215 metadata program was a search, it should be considered “reasonable” in the name of national security.

4.) FAKING IT: In 2000, 60 Minutes did a story on Koch Industries, shedding light on what one of the dissident brothers, Bill Koch, was alleging in Court documents. The report revealed that “Bill Koch filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that much of the oil collected by Koch Industries was stolen from federal lands. At the trial, 50 former Koch gaugers testified against the company, some in video depositions. They said Koch employees had a name for cheating on the measurements.” The theft was called the “Koch Method.”

The 60 Minutes report continued: “The company used the Koch method with virtually all its customers. In the 1980s alone, Koch records show those so-called adjustments brought the company 300 million gallons of oil it never paid for. And it was pure profit. Bill Koch says that profits from that oil were a minimum of $230 million…In December 1999, the jury found that Koch Industries did steal oil from the public and lied about its purchases – 24 thousand times.”

Restoring democracy in America begins with cleaning up the corporate kleptocracy that now runs the country through dark money, front groups, a corrupted Federal Court nominee process and an insidious political campaign financing system. Instead of looking at just Russian interference in our elections, all of the above belongs before an independent special counsel.

If the comedian George Burns were alive today to witness the current state of politics, he might say, “Authenticity is the key to winning elections. And if you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”

In the mind of many Americans, no one has been willing to “tell it like it is” for fear of political extinction.

A candidate going off script has become like a canteen of cold water to someone marooned in the desert. Many Americans have been yearning for someone to step forward and throw all caution to the wind in a stream of unrehearsed, spontaneous, plain-talk messaging.

5.) ISRAEL OWNS AMERICA: Pro-Likud billionaire: the Las Vegas-based casino mogul Sheldon Adelson spoke to Trump at an event in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition. Adelson helps to fund the group, and he owns a popular tabloid in Israel called Israel Hayom, which has long served as a loyal tribune for Netanyahu.

Trump and Adelson met in Las Vegas, and then again in New York. Adelson would endorsed Trump, but he informed him that he wanted a commitment to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Sheldon Adelson met with Trump, Kushner, and Bannon in New York. Adelson asked again about moving the Embassy. “We have to win this,” Bannon said at the meeting, according to someone familiar with the exchange. “If we don’t, forget about moving the Embassy.” Later, Adelson told associates that he had received a commitment that Trump would, if elected, announce the Embassy move on his first day in office. Soon after the meeting, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson started writing checks to back the campaign.

After Trump’s victory, Bannon began drafting his “Day One” project, a list of executive actions that Trump intended to take as soon as the swearing-in ceremony was over. At the top of the list was an executive order moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

M.B.Z. (Muhammad bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi) was equally determined to get an early foothold with Trump. On December 15, 2016, five weeks after the election, he flew to New York to see Kushner, Bannon, and Flynn. They met discreetly at the Four Seasons Hotel, instead of at Trump Tower, where there were always reporters in the lobby.

M.B.Z. adviser named George Nader helped arrange a meeting, at the crown prince’s resort in the Seychelles, between the Blackwater founder Erik Prince—a Bannon ally, and the brother of Betsy DeVos, the Secretary of Education—and Kirill Dmitriev, who ran Russia’s sovereign wealth fund and was close to Putin.

M.B.S. (Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman) described to an American visitor the division of labor. “We’re going to get the deal done,” M.B.S. said. “I’m going to deliver the Palestinians and he”—Trump—“is going to deliver the Israelis.” 

June 19, 2017: Trump sends Jared Kushner, to the Middle East to forge Israeli-Palestinian peace.

July 17, 2018: In a video clip aired by Israeli television, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boasted that Israel was responsible for US President Donald Trump’s decision to quit the Iran nuclear deal.

TRUMP PLEDGES HIS ALLEGIANCE FOR ISRAEL

US President Donald Trump has reportedly signed a secret letter pledging not to strong-arm the Jewish state into relinquishing its nuclear weapons.

The US president’s backing came after Israel’s ambassador to the United States reportedly pressured the administration last year, raising the ire of American officials.

The rare moment of tension between the Israeli government and Trump White House in February 2017 came a month after Trump entered office and was said to devolve into yelling and profanity, according to a report by The New Yorker.

According to the report, Israel was looking for the fledgling Trump administration to sign off on an understanding first reached between prime minister Golda Meir and US president Richard Nixon, whereby Israel would neither declare, test or threaten to use nuclear weapons in exchange for the US not pushing Israel to join the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

While foreign sources have estimated Israel has an arsenal of dozens to hundreds of nuclear weapons, Israel has neither publicly confirmed or denied such reports in keeping with its policy of so-called nuclear ambiguity.

6.) CHINA/RUSSIA NUCLEAR WORLD WAR: The Trump administration is planning to launch a major, “administration-wide,” broadside against China, according to two sources briefed on the sensitive internal discussions.

“We’re not just going to let Russia be the bogeyman,” one White House official told me. “It’s Russia and China.” (And Iran and Venezuela and Cuba and the migrant caravans and the NFL and the democrats and the FED and Obama and Hillary and…)

  • The White House plans to unveil new information about China’s hostile actions against America’s public and private sectors, and to act on it.
  • Administration officials will call out China for its “malign activity” in cyberattacks, election interference and industrial warfare (e.g., intellectual property theft), an administration source told me.
  • The administration has marshaled tons of data to support its charges against China. “We are going to show how the Chinese have infiltrated the U.S. and what we are doing to counter it,” the source said.

Behind the scenes: “The push is coming from the national security apparatus,” the source added. “Cyber theft has been appearing more often in the PDBs [President’s Daily Brief].”

The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way, in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.

Almost two-thirds of US naval forces have been transferred to Asia and the Pacific.

The US has also encircled China with 400 military bases armed with bombers, warships and missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

These bases extend all the way from Australia to the Pacific islands, through Asia to Korea and Japan and across Eurasia to Afghanistan.

The island of Okinawa is an “aircraft carrier” of US military bases, their bombers aimed at China less than 500 miles away.

A mini nuclear war is being planned  

A study by think tank the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled, War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable.

Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the Cold War when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn – “thinking the unthinkable”. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a “winnable” nuclear war.

According to Amitai Etzioni, professor of international Affairs at George Washington University, “the United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress.”

However, “for the first time,” wrote Gregory Kulacki of non-profit organisation the Union of Concerned Scientists, “China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert so that they can be launched quickly on warning of an attack …

Less than five minutes. This is the approximate time that would elapse from President Trump’s decision to launch a nuclear strike against China to shooting intercontinental ballistic missiles out of their silos, according to Bloomberg estimations. The publication, citing former Minuteman missile-launch officer Bruce G. Blair, also estimates that it would take about 15 minutes to fire submarine missiles from their tubes.

7.) THREATS AND PROMISES: The day after the midterm elections, Donald Trump held a press conference in which he expressed some anxiety about congressional investigations from House Democrats. The president threatened to expose “very questionable things” unnamed Dems have done, adding that he wouldn’t work with Congress on substantive issues if he disapproved of lawmakers’ oversight.

Yesterday, in an interview with the New York Post, Trump went a little further.

In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with The Post, President Trump said Wednesday that if House Democrats launched probes into his administration – which he called “presidential harassment” – they’d pay a heavy price.

“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” he said during a 36-minute Oval Office sitdown.

Specifically, the president reportedly raised the prospect with the New York Post of declassifying materials related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Russia scandal, which he predicted would expose some kind of conspiracy linking the FBI, the Justice Department, and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Democrats, Trump warned, “will see how devastating those pages are.”

He’s evidently not prepared to share this evidence now. Rather, the president wants the incoming Democratic House majority to believe he has leverage: if they investigate him, Trump will offer proof to substantiate his anti-Justice Department conspiracy theories.

If, right about now, you find yourself smirking and struggling to stifle a laugh, rest assured, you’re not alone.

On the surface, it’s hard not to notice that Trump seems awfully concerned about House Democratic scrutiny of his White House. Most modern presidents have had to deal with the opposition party controlling at least part of Congress, but no modern president has scrambled to publicly threaten lawmakers not to investigate executive-branch scandals.

I wonder why this is making him so nervous.

There’s also a degree of irony to the circumstances: in the same interview yesterday, Trump railed against “McCarthyism.” It created an unfortunate dynamic: the president simultaneously condemned the tactics of Joseph McCarthy and claimed to have “devastating” secret information that would embarrass his perceived political enemies – which, of course, was a standard McCarthy tactic.

But perhaps most important is the familiarity of the circumstances. Trump claimed to have secret information about Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) that would end his career, but that information didn’t exist. Trump claimed that by declassifying secret intelligence related to the Mueller probe, he could bolster Republican talking points. This tactic has already failedtwice.

It’s against this backdrop that Trump expects everyone to believe that he’s again sitting on secret information that would substantiate one of his favorite conspiracy theories, and he’ll release the “devastating” materials if Congress investigates his scandals. I have a hunch the incoming House Democratic majority isn’t overly concerned.

8.) BANKRUPTING AMERICA: The daily security costs for Trump Tower alone are estimated to be between $127,000 and $146,000, or roughly $50 million per year.

Trump’s decision to charge the Secret Service $60,000 for the use of Mar-a-Lago golf carts is a direct transfer of money from the public to the Trumps’ pockets.

The president is wasting the taxpayer’s money at a time when the country is too broke to properly fix health care, repair infrastructure, reform the tax system, adequately educate children, appropriately fund research, and, yes, even build Trump’s wall.

Six decades of deceitful accounting by both parties are to blame.

DRAINING THE SWAMP

• The pro-democracy rhetoric is still dutifully spouted by politicians and mass-media mouthpieces, but in practice the US is no longer a democracy. It has been turned into a lobbyist’s paradise in which the lobbyists are no longer confined to the lobby but have installed themselves in congressional offices and are drafting prodigious quantities of legislation to suit the private interests of corporations and oligarchs. Nor is the American penchant for democracy traceable in the support the US lavishes on dictatorships around the world or in its increasing tendency to enact and enforce extraterritorial laws without international consent.

• Laissez-faire capitalism is also very much dead, supplanted by crony capitalism nurtured by a thorough melding of Washington and Wall Street elites. Private enterprise is no longer free but concentrated in a handful of giant corporations while about a third of the employed population in the US works in the public sector. The US Department of Defense is the largest single employer in the country as well as in the whole world. About 100 million of working-age able-bodied Americans do not work. Most of the rest work in service jobs, producing nothing durable. An increasing number of people is holding onto a precarious livelihood by working sporadic gigs. The whole system is fueled—including parts of it that actually produce the fuel, such as the fracking industry—by debt. No sane person, if asked to provide a workable description of capitalism, would come up with such a derelict scheme.

• Free trade was talked up until very recently, if not actually implemented. Unimpeded trade over great distances is the sine qua non of all empires, the US empire included. In the past, warships and the threat of occupation were used to force countries, such as Japan, to open themselves up to international trade. Quite recently, the Obama administration was quite active in its attempts to push through various transoceanic partnerships, but none of them have succeeded. And now Trump has set about wrecking what free trade there was by a combination of sanctions and tariffs, in a misguided attempt to rekindle America’s lost greatness by turning inward. Along the way, sanctions on the use of the US dollar in international trade, especially with key energy exporting nations such as Iran and Venezuela, are accelerating the process by which the US dollar is being dethroned as the world’s reserve currency, demolishing America’s exorbitant privilege of endless money-printing.

The US military is still huge, but it is quite flaccid. It is no longer able to field a ground force of any size and confines itself to aerial bombardment, training and arming of “moderate terrorists” and mercenaries, and pointless steaming about the oceans. None of the recent military adventures have resulted in anything resembling peace on terms that the American planners had originally envisioned or have ever considered desirable: Afghanistan has been turned into a terrorist incubator and a heroin factory; Iraq has been absorbed into a continuous Shia crescent that now runs from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.

US military bases are still found throughout the world. They were meant to project American power over both hemispheres of the globe, but they have been largely neutralized by the advent of new long-range precision weapons, potent air defense technology and electronic warfare wizardry. These numerous “lily pads,” as they are sometimes called, are the opposite of military assets: they are useless but expensive targets located in places that are hard to defend but easy for potential adversaries to attack. They can only be used for pretend-combat, and the endless series of military training exercises, such as the ones in the Baltic statelets, right on the Russian border, or the ones in South Korea, that are meant to be provocative.

Around the world, the US is still loathed, but it is feared less and less: a fatal trend for an empire. But America has done quite well in militarizing its local police departments, so that when the time comes it will be ready to go to war… against itself.

Having witnessed one collapse, and now witnessing another, the one approach I would definitely not recommend is doing nothing and hoping for the best.

Remember, the markets always surge before the crash. We’ve had the surge, so we know what comes next.

When the U.S. economic collapse occurs, it will happen quickly. Get prepared now.

10 Facts about the Syrian conflict you won’t hear on the main stream media

By Christopher R Rice, the Underground

I’m putting these articles together in the hopes that it will help you connect the dots. Please share this with as many people as you can. And thank you for your time. Godspeed.

1.) Iran and Saudi Arabia’s cold war is making the Middle East even more dangerous

It’s amazing Prince Saud managed to ask his question with straight face. Saudi Arabia was also taking sides, providing large numbers of weapons to rebels in Syria, some of them Islamist extremists who have contributed to the conflict’s downward spiral. Syria had become more than just a civil war: it was a proxy conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia, both of which were escalating the war in their effort to combat each other.

Over the past decade, the Saudis and Iranians have supported opposing political parties, funded opposing armies, and directly waged war against one another’s proxies in Lebanon, Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. While they did not create the crises in those places, they have exacerbated them considerably.

2.) How Turkey exports ISIS oil to the world: The scientific evidence

As part of our continuing effort to track and document the ISIS oil trade, we present the following excerpts from a study by George Kiourktsoglou, Visiting Lecturer, University of Greenwich, London and Dr Alec D Coutroubis, Principal Lecturer, University of Greenwich, London. The paper, entitled “ISIS Gateway To Global Crude Oil Markets,” looks at tanker charter rates from the port of Ceyhan in an effort to determine if Islamic State crude is being shipped from Southeast Turkey.

“Turkey has played a key role in facilitating the life-blood of ISIS’ expansion: black market oil sales. Senior political and intelligence sources in Turkey and Iraq confirm that Turkish authorities have actively facilitated ISIS oil sales through the country. Last summer, Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, an MP from the main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, estimated the quantity of ISIS oil sales in Turkey at about $800 million—that was over a year ago. By now, this implies that Turkey has facilitated over $1 billion worth of black market ISIS oil sales to date.”

3.) Chemical attacks in Syria in 2012 and 2017 committed against Syrian civilians were not carried out by Assad’s forces as the West claims but by Turkish forces.

The Red Line and the Rat Line

The DIA paper took the arrests as evidence that al-Nusra was expanding its access to chemical weapons. It said Qassab had ‘self-identified’ as a member of al-Nusra, and that he was directly connected to Abd-al-Ghani, the ‘ANF emir for military manufacturing’. Qassab and his associate Khalid Ousta worked with Halit Unalkaya, an employee of a Turkish firm called Zirve Export, who provided ‘price quotes for bulk quantities of sarin precursors’. Abd-al-Ghani’s plan was for two associates to ‘perfect a process for making sarin, then go to Syria to train others to begin large scale production at an unidentified lab in Syria’. The DIA paper said that one of his operatives had purchased a precursor on the ‘Baghdad chemical market’, which ‘has supported at least seven CW efforts since 2004’.

A series of chemical weapon attacks in March and April 2013 was investigated over the next few months by a special UN mission to Syria. A person with close knowledge of the UN’s activity in Syria told me that there was evidence linking the Syrian opposition to the first gas attack, on 19 March in Khan Al-Assal, a village near Aleppo. In its final report in December, the mission said that at least 19 civilians and one Syrian soldier were among the fatalities, along with scores of injured. It had no mandate to assign responsibility for the attack, but the person with knowledge of the UN’s activities said: ‘Investigators interviewed the people who were there, including the doctors who treated the victims. It was clear that the rebels used the gas. It did not come out in public because no one wanted to know.’

“The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN. (CNN Report, December 9, 2012)

False Flag: How the U.S. Armed Syrian Rebels to Set Up an Excuse to Attack Assad
Read more: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-08/false-flag-how-us-armed-syrian-rebels-set-excuse-attack-assad

A removed article from The Daily Mail seems to prove that the U.S. had planned on helping the rebels actually use chemical weapons as well. The article was supposedly removed because the source of the information was untrustworthy. A Malaysian hacker was said to have taken emails from British defense contractors from an unprotected server.

Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad’s regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country.

A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme ‘approved by Washington’ is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons.

4.) The US Government Sent Blackwater Veteran To Syria to stage chemical attack

The former director of the security firm Blackwater aided the Libyan opposition and was subsequently sent to contact Syrian rebels in Turkey at the request of a U.S. Government committee, according to published Stratfor emails and reported by Al-Akhbar English.

5.) The Dirty War on Syria

The Saudis and Israel hope to benefit by breaking the central link in the Axis of Resistance, isolating Palestine and Hezbollah from Iran.

That is why they back all the sectarian mercenary groups, whatever their names. Unfortunately for them, and despite all the slaughter, they have helped drive Iraq into that same Axis of Resistance.

Turkish Prime Minister claimed “Turkey will not allow cooperation with terrorist organizations in Syria”; what’s your take on his remark?

This is simply double-speak. The current government of Turkey remains a key sponsor of the terrorism in both Syria and Iraq.

Russia helped expose that, particularly clearly, late last year, when they charted the DAESH oil traffic into Turkey, and the free flow of terrorists across the border into Syria. The world knows that the Erdogan government backs terrorists in Syria.

6.) CIA secretly trained ISIS fighters in Jordan in 2012

Former President Obama signed an Executive Order on Syria in early 2012 [just as he had done for Libya in early 2011], that legally covered the CIA and other U.S. agencies that otherwise would have been in violation of aiding and abetting the enemy in time of war and providing material support to terrorism.

Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey all pledged financial and material assistance to fighters, all of whom are non-Syrian fighters, many of whom are fighting as members of al-Qaida, Salafi and radical Jihadi (ISIS) organizations. Jabhat al-Nusra is al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate.

CIA created ISIS‘, says Julian Assange as Wikileaks releases 500k US cables

The U.S. intelligence documents not only confirms suspicions that the United States and some of its coalition allies had actually facilitated the rise of the ISIS in Syria – as a counterweight to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad- but also that ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency at facilities in Jordan in 2012.

7.) Clinton Email Claims Saudi, Qatari Support for ISIS

“We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” the email says.

“The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure,” it adds.

8.) Hackers trace ISIS Twitter accounts back to internet addresses linked to Department of Work and Pensions

Hackers have claimed that a number of Islamic State supporters’ social media accounts are being run from internet addresses linked to the Department of Work and Pensions.

A group of four young computer experts who call themselves VandaSec have unearthed evidence indicating that at least three ISIS-supporting accounts can be traced back to the DWP.

9.) ISIS is a CIA Death Squad

Reuters had reported in 2012 that the FSA’s command was dominated by Islamic extremists, and the New York Times had reported that same year that the majority of the weapons that Washington was sending into Syria were ending up in the hands Jihadists. For two years the U.S. government knew that this was happening, but they kept doing it.

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh released an article in April of 2014 which exposed a classified agreement between the CIA, Turkey and the Syrian rebels to create what was referred to as a “rat line”. The “rat line” was covert network used to channel weapons and ammunition from Libya, through southern Turkey and across the Syrian border. Funding was provided by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

12.) Saudi Arabia Wants to Fight Iran to the Last American

Documents from Wikileaks show that the U.S. State Department wanted to help rebels overthrow Syrian Dictator Assad in order to strengthen Israel’s position against Iran. The State Department discussed how Iran and Syria trained forces in opposition to Israel. The fall of Assad, they said, would destroy the only Iranian ally in the region positioned to help Iran in the event of Israeli aggression to stop Iran’s alleged nuclear program.

According to a top-secret National Security Agency document provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden, the March 2013 rocket attacks were directly ordered by a member of the Saudi royal family, Prince Salman bin Sultan, to help mark the second anniversary of the Syrian revolution. Salman had provided 120 tons of explosives and other weaponry to opposition forces, giving them instructions to “light up Damascus” and “flatten” the airport, the document, produced by U.S. government surveillance on Syrian opposition factions, shows.

As Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said in 2010, the Saudis “want to fight the Iranians to the last American.” Why the Saudis would see this as attractive is clear. Why Netanyahu would like to go along with this also follows a certain logic. That is not the mystery in this drama. The mystery is why the president of the United States would go along with something that so clearly contradicts U.S. national interest.

It is not the Saudi crown prince that is acting irrationally. It’s the president of the United States.

The idea of the CIA funding an Islamic group to further its political interests isn’t exactly “far-fetched”. In fact, there are several obvious instances in recent history where the US openly supported extremist Islamist groups (dubbed “freedom fighters” in mass media).  The most flagrant and well-documented example is the creation of the Mujaheddin in Afghanistan, a group that was created by the CIA to lure the USSR in an “Afghan trap”. The term Mujaheddin describes “Muslims who struggle in the path of Allah” and comes from the root word “jihad”. The “great enemy” of today was the friend of the past. An important architect of this policy was Zbigniew Brzezinski one of the most influential statesman in U.S. History. From JFK to Obama, Brzezinski has been an important figure shaping U.S. policy across the world. He also created the Trilateral commission with David Rockefeller. In the following excerpt from a 1998 interview, Brzezinski explains how the Mujaheddin were used in Afghanistan:


Trump’s hidden agenda: Emperor Caracalla

By Christopher R Rice (from around the web), UndergroundRailroad

The US KBW Bank index, which tracks large US banks and serves as a benchmark for the banking sector, is down 2.5% at the moment. It has dropped 17% from its post-Financial Crisis high on January 29.

Of course European banking stocks are doing much worse.  Right now they are down 27 percent from the peak and 23 percent from a year ago.

If they aren’t healthy, nobody is going to be healthy for long, and it is starting to look and feel a whole lot like 2008.

I have previously warned my readers that the damage caused by this trade war would get progressively worse the longer that it lasts.

Many companies have been trying to ride it out, but eventually the money runs out and layoffs start happening

A soft landing for America 40 years from now? Don’t bet on it. The demise of the United States as the global superpower could come far more quickly than anyone imagines.

People need to understand the threat is at their doorstep. It’s not a few years off or a decade away; it’s here now. We are right in the middle of collapse.

Each one of the FAANG stocks is now down by more than 20 percent, and they have combined to lose more than a trillion dollars in value. We haven’t seen anything like this since the financial crisis of 2008, and at this point all of Wall Street’s gains for 2018 have been completely wiped out.

The following numbers come from CNBC

  • Facebook: $253 billion
  • Amazon: $280 billion
  • Apple: $253 billion
  • Netflix: $67 billion
  • Alphabet: $164 billion

When you add those figures together, you get a grand total of 1.02 trillion dollars.

Our economy is more dependent on Wall Street than ever, and it is absolutely imperative that we have a healthy financial system. Now that the financial system is starting to crumble, a lot of people are becoming highly alarmed.

As a result, economic activity will crash at a pace that will make 2008 look like a Sunday picnic.

Our system will not be able to handle a decline of that magnitude. There is more leverage on Wall Street today than ever before, and a huge decline in stock prices would lead to a meltdown unlike anything we have ever witnessed.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, the Book of Revelation by John of Patmos, at 6:1-8. The chapter tells of a book or scroll in God‘s right hand that is sealed with seven seals. The Lamb of God opens the first four of the seven seals, which summons four beings that ride out on white, red, black, and pale horses.

President Trump is actually the man who will bring the Apocalypse.

“According to the Bible, the Antichrist will be a charismatic celebrity, a ‘big talker’ and a ‘smooth talker’.” “He will convince people that he alone has the solution to every problem. He will claim to be a deal-maker and a master negotiator.

“He will claim to know how to defend Israel and to create lasting peace in the Middle East. He will be an intimidator and a militant lover of power.”

He will exalt and magnify himself and claim to be the ‘only Savior’. He will deceive the masses, and even the very elect. The number 666 denotes arrogance, pride, egotism, the love of money and power, and militarism.

The Black Horse of the Apocalypse, has a rider and a set of scales, it is justice. His lethal power is a terrible, divine judgment on mankind for its violent oppression and greed, and it takes the form of famine and wasting through malnutrition. 

The appearance of the Black horse and its rider will bring depression and want, with heavy taxation from the government holding the balances which should have spoken of justice and equity. 

From A.D. 212 to A.D. 217 the Emperor Caracalla and his successor oppressed the people and heaped upon them burdens grievous to be borne. This taxation to maintain the army and the extravagant administration of the Empire proved to be so burdensome that agriculture was ruined and fertile provinces were left uncultivated in desolation, depression and gloom.

In our highly interdependent system in the West in which more than 80 percent of the population has been domesticated and is psychologically incapable of self-reliance, it is very likely that a disruption of normal supply chains and services would result in considerable poverty and death. Such a threat would invariably lead frightened and unprepared people to demand increased government controls so that they can return to the level of comfort they have grown accustomed to.

Their solution will be predictable.

MARTIAL LAW

Much has recently been written about the possibility of impeaching President Trump. We should be looking at the possibility that President Trump will find himself believing that he is in a corner, under siege, and he will resort to what all trapped animals do — fight like crazy to survive.

What could he do? I fear that his temperament is such that he will announce that the press, the Democrats, the deep state, in and out of government, have been building a case to remove him from office via a vast conspiracy of trumped-up charges.

He will say this is a potential coup that cannot be allowed to come to fruition.

For the good of the country he will say that he is declaring martial law and that he will hold free and fair elections within the year. Martial law will allow him to suspend the Constitution, remove all or part of Congress, take over all judicial proceedings and detain whoever he wants via his police powers.

Who, or what, will be asked to enforce his extra legal usurpation of authority? Traditionally, in countries around the world, when martial law is declared the military is tasked to enforce all orders, proclamations and directives. This has lead to civilian demonstrations, often violent, against the new order. Usually the military is given a free hand to maintain law and order by whatever means necessary.

Will the military obey Trump’s dictums? The Universal Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) explicitly states that all military personnel are obligated to refuse to carry out an illegal order. However, if a military person refuses to carry out what is later determined to have been a legal order then the individual can be tried for treason. How many will be willing to take the chance of being tried for treason?

I am strongly suggesting that there is an increasingly real and frightening possibility that Trump will resort to martial law.

For those who believe that there is a near zero probability of President Trump declaring martial law I quote what he said recently at a meeting with conservatives and evangelicals: “We’re under siege and we know how to fight better than anybody and we never ever give up.” 

Dueling accusations of criminality, investigations instead of debates, jail promised to the loser – is what politics would look like in a WWE future where government is a for-profit television program.

TRUMP’S HIDDEN AGENDA: Trump Planning Mass Arrests, Military Tribunals For Deep State Traitors

I found this on the a pro-Trump Tea Party website:  “…seize control of Google, Facebook, CNN, Washington Post and the New York Times to halt the treasonous lies, coordinated election fraud and political coup attempt which is being run by all these traitors of America.”

Order military police to find and arrest thousands of deep state traitors who have been deliberately undermining America from within. This will include hundreds of people inside the FBI and DOJ, plus hundreds more in the State Department and other agencies. Arrests must also include traitorous, corrupt federal judges who have deliberately undermined America by, for example, blocking Trump’s constitutional travel ban to protect America from enemy terrorists. Many traitors will attempt to flee the country, of course, and they will need to be located and brought to justice.”   

UPDATE: Trump retweets image of US deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein behind bars ‘for treason’

Donald Trump has retweeted a mocked up image of a range of people the president considers enemies behind bars, including the US deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

The tweet, which was posted by an account called The Trump Train, also includes Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Robert Mueller, with the caption: “Now that Russia collusion is a proven lie, when do the trials for treason begin?”

While the initial scenario we face in America will be one of stagflation, many necessities and the means to produce those necessities will skyrocket in cost. There may not be inflation in every sector of the economy because imploding demand could offset some of the effects of falling currency value, but there will be extreme inflation in the areas that hurt common people most.

Many Americans will starve to death. And the American government won’t do anything to help. Buildings, like the economy will be in collapse. Nationwide shortages of food at runaway inflation prices will become the norm.

With an economy in freefall, and food prices skyrocketing, many Americans will eat less and less every day. Children will suffer the most, and severe malnutrition will rise at an alarming rate.

With triple-digit inflation driving up prices, few will be able to afford to pay for even the most basic goods. We will find that U.S. interest rates simply cannot go up enough to stop inflation.

Hyperinflation will largely destroy the economy’s capacity to produce real goods.

The third horse is the black horse of famine, which brings with it a global food shortage. This horse is as black as tar. You can hear his hooves pounding, his flanks heaving. You can see his nostrils flaring, as his great rage focuses on the human race.

He comes to bring global famine. Super markets will be stripped bare. Civil riots will break out over the lack of food! People will begin to know the aching, clawing sensation of true hunger. And it could happen across America and the nations of the world very soon.

The rider on the black horse holds up a balance and scale, declaring how much one simple meal will cost…the sum of one day’s wages. There will not be enough to share with family or friends. Just one meal for one day’s wages. Starving people in the coming global famine of the Great Tribulation will kill each other in order to eat.

Last month more than 100 executives from the world’s largest financial institutions met privately at the Times Square office of Nasdaq Inc. to discuss the future of money; more specifically a software apparatus called “Blockchain.” The goal is to implement Blockchain as a medium to fully digitize monetary transactions around the world and in a way that is traceable and foolproof. In other words, the goal is put an end to all transactions involving physical cash.

Corrupt government is the tool by which globalists can extort goods and labor from a population as well as exert force to subdue rebellion. It is highly unlikely that the global reset will result in a collapse of government. On the contrary, it is usually during economic collapse that governments grow in power to the point of totalitarianism.

The Anti-Christ will have complete control over all of the food on planet earth. The oil and wine discussed in the book of Revelation are food for the wealthy, also controlled by the Anti-Christ.

These rulers and their subordinates will stock their shelves with choice products from the state-owned supermarket; but the masses will starve to death, exactly like what happened in the Holocaust as Hitler and his Nazi regime had the finest of everything…and the Jews literally died of starvation in the concentration camps just a few feet away.

THE WALL

Sometime in the future: A group of friends and I had to bug out of Phoenix do to society breaking down. As we got to the border which is usually open, I was shocked to see that a giant wall was preventing us from leaving America. 

The CIA controls most of the drug trade through America which would benefit from a wall because then the drug mules would be on lock down giving the CIA a monopoly on drug imports. Also, given the current debt that American’s owe to the central bankers it’s likely that they don’t want their tax slaves running away.

Even now we can hear the thunderous hooves of the four horses storming across the stage of human history, bringing deception, wars, hunger and death on a scale so massive it staggers the mind! The Bible makes it perfectly clear that God’s judgment is certain. Acts 17:31 tells us, “…because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”

God judged Noah’s generation that mocked the message of salvation by sending a flood. He drowned every last human on planet earth. He is the ultimate judge and He will have the very last word…no matter what Congress rules or the UN decides. King Jesus will rule and reign with ultimate authority.

The word “Apocalypse” is a Greek word that means to remove the veil, to uncover or make clear. The purpose of the book of Revelation is to remove the veil and make clear what God’s plans are for the future of this world. God is saying to the church, “I am the God that knows the end from the beginning, and I am in total control!”

GET READY! The Anti-Christ is coming to produce a one world government, a one world religion and a one world currency.

And I will make it as clear as I can. Get your house in order. Make practical preparations for famine.

Collect bottled water and canned goods. Pray with and for your family members. Make sure they have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. While we do not live in fear, we must be prepared. Our time grows shorter with every waking hour.

Our very survival is hanging in the balance.

I would never have dreamed that I would be preaching a sermon series on “The Coming Fourth Reich,” teaching on the similarities between Hitler and our modern day existence…but here I am waving a red flag and saying as boldly as I know how…GET READY! Don’t sit by and wait for someone else to do something! Don’t wait for your rights to be completely stripped. Stand up! Speak up!

Then when the Lamb opened the third seal I heard the third living creature saying, “Come!” So I looked, and here came a black horse! The one who rode it had a balance scale in his hand.

Think that sounds impossible?

The fact of the matter is that all of this has been orchestrated. Our present state of affairs amounts to little more than political theatre. The common metaphor of politicians being puppets is apt. The ones pulling the strings behind the scenes are the same who own and control central banks. The chairman of the Fed, in a sense, is also a puppet, for he does not own the bank he oversees. He’s simply a sort of executive – a face to the world who appears to make important decisions. The POTUS assumes a similar role.

As economies and ecologies continue to collapse, the world will be dragged into war as a result. The pieces for this horrific play have already been set in motion. It is only a matter of time before financial crisis grips the globe, famine spreads like wildfire, and ever-larger conflicts ensue.

The result will be a world war that will, as planned, become a full-scale nuclear assault.

China has officially announced that its new currency, the Petro-Yuan, will be available this year. This will lead to the US dollar losing reserve currency status and ultimately failing as a currency. The resulting chaos will have only one solution – war.

The American economy is paralyzed. With long-fraying alliances at an end and fiscal pressures mounting, U.S. military forces are seen as the only hope and so the populist president will launch world war three.

I have been writing about this over and over because I both want people to take notice and want to have it on the record so that when it all comes down, it can be easily understood what the real causes were. Make no mistake – the mechanisms underlying this imminent financial failure will be obscured. For evidence of this, just look to the lack of press coverage this Petro-Yuan event has received in the Western mainstream media.

Were it not for RT.com, most would never have even known this had happened.

American and European media had us distracted with scandal after scandal. Meanwhile, the entire empire has had its support pillars undermined and the final nail placed in its coffin due to a viable alternative to the US dollar backed by a regional superpower now existing. Most people living in first-world nations haven’t the slightest clue that any of this is happening and don’t perceive that war is on the horizon as a result.

This will allow those in power to pin the failure on any manufactured event they choose.

I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way, in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.

Almost two-thirds of US naval forces have been transferred to Asia and the Pacific.

The US has also encircled China with 400 military bases armed with bombers, warships and missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

These bases extend all the way from Australia to the Pacific islands, through Asia to Korea and Japan and across Eurasia to Afghanistan.

The island of Okinawa is an “aircraft carrier” of US military bases, their bombers aimed at China less than 500 miles away.

A mini nuclear war is being planned.

A study by think tank the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled, War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable.

Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the Cold War when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn – “thinking the unthinkable”. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a “winnable” nuclear war.

According to Amitai Etzioni, professor of international Affairs at George Washington University, “the United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress.”

However, “for the first time,” wrote Gregory Kulacki of non-profit organisation the Union of Concerned Scientists, “China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert so that they can be launched quickly on warning of an attack …

Less than five minutes. This is the approximate time that would elapse from President Trump’s decision to launch a nuclear strike against China to shooting intercontinental ballistic missiles out of their silos, according to Bloomberg estimations. The publication, citing former Minuteman missile-launch officer Bruce G. Blair, also estimates that it would take about 15 minutes to fire submarine missiles from their tubes.

Xi Jinping Says China Has To Prepare For War 

China’s President Xi Jinping has ordered the military region responsible for monitoring the South China Sea and Taiwan to pay a special attention to the current situation in the region and boost its capabilities so it can handle any emergency.

“It’s necessary to strengthen the mission … and concentrate preparations for fighting a war,” Xi said during an inspection tour made on October 25 as part of his visit to Guangdong province, according to state broadcaster CCTV. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly.”

Xi emphasized that the Southern Theater Command has had to bear a “heavy military responsibility” in recent years. He stated that the Chinese military has “to step up combat readiness exercises, joint exercises and confrontational exercises to enhance servicemen capabilities and preparation for war”.

The black horse and its rider are doing their job, cultivating and reaping the seeds sown in war and oppression: scarcity and famine. Hard on its heels comes another reaper, who sweeps up and destroys what his fellows leave behind. 

The horrors brought on by the Four Horsemen are only the beginning of the End: after that the Tribulation cranks up to intolerable levels and suffering will take over the entire world. Eventually the full measure of God’s wrath will be poured out on the earth.

George Soros rep says he wants to go on Fox News. But they won’t book him

Fox News talks about billionaire philanthropist George Soros a lot. He is a favorite bogeyman of the right, so Fox’s conservative talk shows blame him for all sorts of ills, sometimes even pushing into conspiracy theory territory.

But the head of Soros’s philanthropic group said the conservative network won’t let him on air to rebut the wild accusations.

Patrick Gaspard, president of Soros’s Open Society Foundations, told CNN’s Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” Sunday that Fox News producers “refuse to have us on.”

Fox News did not respond to CNN Business’ request for comment about Gaspard’s claim.

Conspiracy theories about Soros have spread for years among the far right.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have circulated accusations that Soros, who is Jewish, is assisting a caravan of migrants bound for the United States, which the foundation denies.

The conspiracy found its way onto Fox News in recent weeks. The caravan is frequently described by people on the network as an “invasion.”

A guest on Lou Dobbs’ popular Fox Business program, Chris Farrell, repeated claims the migrant caravan is supported by Soros last month and encountered no push back from Dobbs.

The remark drew widespread criticism when the episode was rebroadcast on October 27, hours after a gunman walked into a Pittsburgh synagogue and murdered 11 people. The Anti-Defamation League called the shooting the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in US history. Just days earlier, pipe bombs targeting Soros and other Trump critics through the mail were intercepted by authorities.

Fox later condemned Farrell’s remark and said it would no longer re-air the segment or allow Farrell, the head of the conservative group Judicial Watch, on the network.

Gaspard said he gives the network “credit” for taking that step.

But he pointed to similar comments from two congressmen who shared the conspiracy on Fox News.

Representative Matt Gaetz from Florida said during an October 19 appearance that he has “reason to believe” Soros is paying the migrants. He said a report from Judicial Watch provided evidence.

Representatives Louie Gohmert said during an October 22 appearance on Fox News that he “can’t help but think the Democrats — perhaps Soros — may be funding” the caravan. Gohmert again came on Fox on October 31, and told Dobbs that it’s “not anti-Semitic to criticize Soros.

Spokespeople for Gaetz and Gohmert did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNN Business.

“There’s been no opportunity for our foundation or for thoughtful Americans to come on and rebut,” Gaspard said.

Stelter asked Gaspard if he blamed Fox News or the congressmen for recent acts of violence.

“To be clear, I’m not blaming them for violence,” Gaspard said. “I’m blaming them for the toxic environment that we live in.”

“I’m calling out Gohmert, and I’m calling out Gaetz, and I’m calling out the producers on Fox who are not creating space for thoughtful honest discussion,” he said.

Nikki Haley accepted private flights from GOP donors while in office; IG investigation requested

By

Nikki Haley’s resignation from her position as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday overshadowed a Monday report from watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) that called into question Haley’s acceptance of a series of free private luxury plane flights from three South Carolina businessmen and GOP donors.

Haley listed seven private plane flights in the “gift” section of her 2018 financial disclosure, claiming an exception from ethics regulations by claiming she has a personal relationship with the South Carolina residents who provided the flights.

CREW sent a letter to the State Department’s Inspector General to investigate whether the gifts were eligible for such an exception, noting all three men supported Haley’s gubernatorial campaign at one point.

Noah Bookbinder, CREW executive director, said the free flights saved Haley significant amounts of money compared to what she would have spent on private flights.

“By accepting gifts of luxury private flights, Ambassador Haley seems to be falling in line with other Trump administration officials who are reaping personal benefits from their public positions,” Bookbinder said in a statement. “Our ethics laws are clearly written to prevent even the appearance of corruption and improper influence.”

A spokesperson for CREW on Tuesday said the organization doesn’t have any information that would lead it to believe Haley’s sudden resignation was related to the call for an ethics investigation.

The three South Carolina businessmen mentioned in the letter are Jimmy Gibbs, Smyth McKissick and Mikee Johnson, and all three have contributed to GOP officials directly and through their own companies.

The report notes that McKissick’s company — Alice Manufacturing in Pickens County, S.C. — gave $32,000 in support of Haley’s gubernatorial campaigns, directly and through South Carolina nonprofit organization The Movement Fund.

McKissick has given more than 100 individual contributions to GOP candidates and causes —  including $12,600 in individual contributions to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) — and his company has given $83,700 to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s campaign (R-S.C.).

Gibbs, founder of Gibbs International — a textiles manufacturer and equipment dealer in Spartanburg, S.C. — has made nearly 50 contributions to GOP candidates since 1989, including seven contributions to Graham, ranging from 2001 to 2015 and totaling $13,400. He also gave $10,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2004 and $1,750 to then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2015.

Related: Trump/Pence: How many Violations of the Constitution?

Mikee Johnson, former CEO of Cox Industries — an Orangeburg, S.C. wood treatment company that recently sold after 66 years of family ownership — has been less active as an individual contributor. He has given to GOP causes a handful of times, including three contributions to the Republican Party of South Carolina for a total of $13,500.

Additionally, McKissick and Johnson both volunteered to help Haley fundraise for her re-election campaign in 2013.

Trump Administration Cover-Up: U.S. Drinking Toxic Water

By EV

According to a report from The New Republic, the Trump Administration and EPA’s Scott Pruitt tried to suppress a federal study that shows water toxicity levels across the U.S. are worse than previously expected. The study found this was especially true around military bases, who routinely conduct training exercises using PFAS.

PFAS, or perfluoroalkyls, are chemical compounds used in numerous household items, from carpets to frying pans. They’re also used in military firefighting foams. This puts U.S. soldiers who reside on military bases at higher risk due to the exercises they conduct. These foams soak into the ground, contaminating drinking water, which is then distributed to around 3 million Americans by the Department of Defense.

The EPA acknowledges the chemical compounds are found in roughly 1 percent of the nation’s drinking water. And the Environmental Working Group states this includes roughly 1,500 drinking water systems across the country. While 1 percent may seem like a low figure, even citizens with low exposure have potentially increased risks of cancer; disruptions of hormones and the immune system; and complications with fetal development for women who are pregnant.

Fearing a “public relations nightmare,” the Trump Administration worked to hide the study from the public. One White House aide wrote:

The public, media, and Congressional reaction to these numbers is going to be huge. The impact to EPA and [the Defense Department] is going to be extremely painful. We cannot seem to get ATSDR to realize the potential public relations nightmare this is going to be.”

The study was quietly released during the media firestorm around Trump’s immigration policy so that it would slip under the public’s radar. And sure enough, the mainstream media isn’t talking about it.

However the issue’s been known of since at least 2016 when the Grand Rapids Press spoke to veterans who developed medical problems they blamed on PFAS. It wasn’t until Michigan officials warned against consuming well water near the facility that citizens learned of the danger. One veteran stated:

We thought that if anything was wrong, of course someone would tell us. It feels like we’ve been betrayed.”

The DOD has apparently taken action to stop the contamination, but according to the Berkeley School of Law, “the pace of actual cleanup has been quite slow. Most of the time and money has been spent studying the problem.” States like Washington are now testing drinking water for PFAS, and you can too, though it might set you back a couple thousand dollars depending on the lab you use.

The following PDF file provides a list of EPA-approved labs that can test for PFAS (source).

Apartheid Part 2

By Christopher R Rice

Trump asks Mike Pompeo to look at South African land seizures and ‘large scale killing of farmers’ (BI)

(Reuters) – US President Donald Trump said he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures” and the killing of farmers there.

“I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and large scale killing of farmers,” Trump said in a post on Twitter.

So the ANC caved because Trump threatened you with Pompeo. Well, let me tell you something about Pompeo. Trump sent Pompeo to Korea to slip Kim Jong Un a nerve agent but he failed. Then Trump sent Pompeo to Iran, where Pompeo paid some Iranians to protest in a weak attempt at a color revolution that also failed.

I have a message for the ANC: When you were in diapers and wetting the sheets I was fighting de Klerk’s Apartheid and Ronald fucking Reagan.

Related: Trump Cites False Claims of Widespread Attacks on White Farmers in South Africa (NYTimes)

Biko and Reagan are both dead but I’m still here.

Ronald Reagan had no problems with Apartheid which kept blacks from owning their own land. Either did Donald Trump. I know because I was there and I fought Reagan myself over what Reagan termed “constructive engagement.” And since my friends the US had no problems, at all, with whites stealing land from blacks. How can you now keep that land in white hands?

When I started the boycotts that ended Apartheid, I begged everyone to please not stop protesting, because as I said then, nothing will change. Ending the Apartheid laws was a scam just like civil rights legislation in the US was a scam, too.

Black are no better off than before. Black South Africans still work 16 hours a day seven days a week to live in a shanty town where the houses are made out of cardboard boxes.

So to the ANC, I’d like to say that you are no better than Apartheid under de Klerk and I will fight you with everything I have until the day I die. Because the Underground believes that no one is free until we are all free. And freedom is something that is worth fighting for. Freedom is something worth dying for.

The difference between a rich man and a poor man is a poor man will travel halfway around the world to die for another mans freedom while a rich man will ask for five deferments and run from harms way. I am not a rich man.

American Christians elected the Antichrist to be president

Trump has become the self-proclaimed messiah of a bizarre new cult and religion. The Donald claims to love and revere the Bible, but couldn’t name a favorite book, chapter or verse. His abilities as a prophet are obviously not very good, or he wouldn’t have two failed marriages, four bankruptcies, and a series of failed businesses such as Trump Mortgage, Trump Vodka, Trump Ice, Trump Steaks, Trump Airlines, Trump: the Game, etc.

Did American Christians just elect the Antichrist president, putting him in charge of the American government, economy, military and nuclear codes? Have the elect been deceived, just as the ancient prophets foretold? Were the elect ironically deceived during an election? Who elected Trump? Four out of five evangelical Christians voted for Trump, according to exit polls.

(AFP) – US President Donald Trump raised the specter of violence around upcoming midterms Wednesday, saying he did not want to see “unnecessary” unrest days after he reportedly warned evangelical leaders of violent change if Republicans lose control of Congress.

When asked by a reporter why he had on Monday suggested there would be violence around the November elections, Trump simply said “because that’s the way.”

“If you look at what happens … there’s a lot of unnecessary violence all over the world, but also in this country, and I don’t want to see it,” he said.

At a meeting with evangelical leaders at the White House, Trump had said everything was at stake for his conservative agenda if his party loses, according to an audiotape of the meeting obtained by the Times.

Is this the face of a man we can trust, or is this the face of a Deceiver: a con man, a snake oil salesman, a shaman? Do you trust this man? What does your gut tell you? What will happen to Christians who support a man who is the exact opposite of Jesus Christ in every way? Will they be the goats who claimed to follow Jesus, calling him “Lord! Lord!” only to hear him say on the last day: “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity!” Revelation says that Christians who follow the Beast will “drink of the wine of the wrath of God.” Are Christians risking damnation when they reject the teachings of Christ by supporting Trump?

Is it “Christian” for a nation to turn its back on completely innocent refugee children and their mothers? Is this how “the land of the free and home of the brave” should behave―like the most craven of cowards?

Trump intends to ban all non-Christian refugees from Middle Eastern hot spots. But is Trump wiser than Jesus Christ, who told the Parable of the Good Samaritan (a Palestinian)?

The point of the parable is that Christians cannot limit their compassion and charity to people of their own race and religion. That is what Pharisees do, not Christians.

Trump would have banned the Holy Family, since they came from a “hot spot” of terrorism (Bethlehem is in the Palestinian West Bank) and they were not Christians at the time Jesus was born.

Would you ban Mary and Jesus, joining the heartless people who told them there was “no room”?

Well, Jesus said “Whatsoever ye do unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto Me!”

Why are people who claim to be Christians rejecting Jesus when they reject the smallest and most vulnerable of human beings―refugee children and their mothers?

Trump’s cabinet choices who prove that he is not “draining the swamp,” but stocking it with his crocodilian donors: Steve Bannon (Goldman Sachs), Steve Mnuchin (Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager), Gary Cohn  (Goldman Sachs director), Elaine Chao (Wells Fargo board and lobbyist), Todd Ricketts (SuperPAC donor who helped channel millions to Trump), Wilbur Ross (bailed out Trump’s Taj Mahal casino), Linda McMahon (WWE founder who donated millions to Trump’s campaign), Betsy DeVos (donated millions to Trump), Andrew Puzder (major Trump donor), Rex Tillerson (has spent more than $170 million lobbying).

Trump then: He said that he was “self-funding” his campaign and called the other candidates “slaves” of their donors.

Trump now: He lied when he said that he would donate $100 million of his own money to his campaign to keep himself “pure.” Rather, to save his own money, he took millions from big money donors, and he is now appointing non-qualified donors to some of our nation’s most important jobs. 

No president in recent memory has appointed unqualified donors to policy-making cabinet positions.

Take, for instance, Linda McMahon of the WWE professional wrestling circus. She and her husband Vince McMahon donated $7.5 million to Trump’s campaign and an additional $5 million to his foundation. Now she has been handsomely rewarded with the cabinet position of heading the Small Business Administration. Is there no one in the United States more qualified to head the SBA than Linda McMahon? Of course there are many people more qualified (not to mention less embarrassing than the owner of a company that pays women to run around in their underwear, sometimes ripping each other’s clothes off, to sell tickets). Other Trump donors being handed cabinet positions include Betsy DeVos, Andrew Puzder, Wibur Ross, Todd Ricketts (whose wealthy family helped found and fund the Future45 SuperPAC that spent lavishly to help Trump get elected) and Steve Mnuchin (a Goldman Sachs hedge fund managers who served as Trump’s national finance chairman and helped organize dozens of high-dollar campaign fundraisers across the country). The bottom line? If Trump was telling the truth about other candidates, he became a slave of his donors when he started taking their money.  

Would Jesus Christ vote for a man who cheated on his wives repeatedly, then bragged about it in public? Jesus obviously did not condone adultery, much less sexual assault and ogling underage girls.

Would Jesus Christ vote for a rich man who brags about being “smart” because he doesn’t pay his taxes and his bills? Jesus told Peter that Christians should pay their taxes: “Render unto Caesar …”

Does Donald Trump have a God complex? According to Barbara Res, one of Trump’s highest-ranking female employees: “He got too famous. He started believing his own shit. He got way too famous and, you know, people were telling him he was great and he was buying that. He started thinking that he walked on water, he really did … Now, I don’t think he respects anybody. I don’t think there’s a person alive that he respects, because he thinks he’s God.”

Trump worships himself. He becomes furious when he is criticized, even when the criticism is entirely valid.

Trump seldom talks about American democracy, the Constitution, the rule of law, pluralism, diversity, the Founding Fathers, the separation of powers, the democratic process, freedom, justice, compassion or human rights. Instead, he talks of “strength” and “winning,” usually in relation to himself. What really matters to Trump, apparently, is not what happens to us, but that Trump “wins” and gets to brag about it.

According to Victoria Zdrok, Trump broke up with Kara Young when he discovered that she had African-American blood. 

Trump became so fixated on Princess Diana that she was alarmed by the unwanted attention. According to British television host Selena Scott, Diana felt “as if Trump was stalking her” and he gave her “the creeps.” 

Trump allegedly saw Princess Diana as “the ultimate trophy wife” and “bombarded” her with flowers.

Trump wrote in his Art of the Comeback that his only regret in “the women department” is that he didn’t “court” Lady Diana Spenser, which sounds like a serious fixation. 

Trump’s other fixation is with his daughter, Ivanka. He has commented publically about her hot body and how he’d like to “date” her (and we all know what that means!).  


Trump claims that he commanded the Clintons to come to his wedding: “Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding. She had no choice because I gave to [the Clinton] foundation.”


Trump claims that he always wins, but he has filed four major bankruptcies and many of his businesses went completely under, including Trump Airlines, Trump Steaks, Trump Mortgage, Trump Magazine and Trump: the Game.


Trump calls his detractors “losers,” but he was the ultimate Hollywood loser in 1990 when the Golden Raspberry Awards (commonly known as the Razzies) named him Worst Supporting Actor for his cameo in the infamous and critically panned Bo Derek drama Ghosts Can’t Do It. Even worse, he was playing himself!  

According to the News Examiner, Donald Trump is the “least charitable billionaire” in the world! 

In the aftermath of the 2001 terror attack on the World Trade Center, Donald Trump, a billionaire son of New York City, did not make a single charitable donation to any of the not-for-profit groups that provided aid to 9-11 survivors, rescue workers, or the families of cops and firemen who died trying to save others, according to Internal Revenue Service records. While business moguls raced to write seven-figure checks and schoolchildren emptied their piggy banks, Trump’s charitable foundation―the vehicle through which the Republican presidential candidate’s philanthropy trickles―apparently did not feel the need or responsibility to offer such financial help.

Moreover, Donald Trump is notorious for selling expensive baubles through his Fifth Avenue properties, while doing everything in his power to make sure that disabled American vets are not allowed to street vend on Fifth Avenue.

The record suggests that Trump made no personal contributions to relief efforts for 9-11, Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Sandy. He rousts disabled vets who try to earn a living on Fifth Avenue, even though Trump sells merchandise on Fifth Avenue himself. And yet Trump has the audacity to claim that “I have a bigger heart than all of them.” In reality, it appears that Trump, despite being worth $10 billion by his own estimation, gives virtually none of his own money to charity. 

The Gospel According to Trump reads:

I, Donald Trump, am God. Mere mortals must praise, worship, and adore Me as I do Myself. Then all shall be Great, even also as I am Great. In every way acknowledge Me, and I will direct your paths! Amen.

The Gospel According to Trump concludes with the Trumpian version of the Beatitudes:

Blessed are the rich, for they will always have young, hot, beautiful pieces of ass.

Blessed are the warmongers, for they will be able to steal Iraqi oil to pay for their military adventurism.

Blessed are the daft dodgers, for they can mock POWs for being captured and tortured.

Blessed are the gunslingers, for everyone knows that Jesus Christ did not command Christians to turn the other cheek, but to stand their ground, shoot first, and ask questions later.

Blessed are the arrogant who do not ask God for forgiveness, for they shall enjoy their little communion crackers and wine without remorse.

Blessed are the carnival barkers and their houses of mirrors, for they shall be elected president by deceiving the very elect.
