  • No Diversions: Next Two Weeks Will Decide the Fate of Mankind
    by https://larouchepac.com/ , 28 May 2015  
    At any moment, between now and June 5, the Greek government may formally announce that it cannot repay the IMF. That single announcement, alone, will set off a chain-reaction collapse of the entire European financial system, which will spread instantly to Wall Street. The entire British Empire system of gambling and looting is finished, and for that very reason, the coming days are wildly unpredictable, and can be the start of a catastrophic process, leading to world war, perhaps a war of thermonuclear extinction.

    That overwhelming reality must be the sole focus of attention, for all sane individuals. There is only one action that can sufficiently shift the direction of this crisis, and that is the immediate removal of President Barack Obama from office by Constitutional means. The President has committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the US Constitution and the American people, for which he should have been impeached, or removed under the provisions of the 25th Amendment long ago. Now, it is no longer a matter of preference. It is a matter of life and death.

    If Obama remains in office when the Greek default takes place and the system comes crashing down, there is a grave danger that desperate factions, associated with the British Monarchy, will use their control over their Obama puppet in the White House to launch the kind of military provocations against Russia and/or China that can lead to instant annihilation through thermonuclear war.

    Military circles throughout the West and in Russia and China are well-aware that the coming weeks can bring about world war. Some are explicit. Military analyst John Schindler wrote today about a brief communication he received from a European NATO official, who simply wrote:”Probably be at war this summer. If we’re lucky it won’t be nuclear.”

    President Obama has already provoked a near-war crisis with Russia, via his Victoria Nuland neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine, and the continuing NATO provocations along the Russian borders. Last week’s overflights over the Spratley Islands claimed by China was another provocation that has set the process of direct warfare into motion.

    By removing the British trigger finger from the White House, war can be averted. Obama’s removal can open up a new domain of cooperation, already underway in much of Eurasia and in South America and Africa, through the BRICS process.

    The British financial empire is doomed, and Greece is but one immediate trigger. If sane forces were to prevail, the entirety of the Greek debt would be cancelled–it is all illegitimate in the first place. The same is true for the more than one quadrillion dollars in derivatives and other gambling debt built up by the London and Wall Street banks. This garbage can be thrown out, and the United States and Europe can fully embrace the new BRICS paradigm, which is all based on the Hamiltonian principles of physical economy, directed credit, and national banking, upon which the United States was built.

The Wall Street Journal Calls for War on China and Russia

WW3 is near?

WW3 is near?

  • The Wall Street Journal Calls for War on China and Russia
    by https://larouchepac.com/  , 27 May 2015
    The Wall Street Journal flashed its neocon colors today, in an open call for war on Russia and China as soon as possible. Titled “Russia, Iran and China are advancing as the U.S. retreats,” the Editorial says that Vladimir Putin’s sale of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran is “the latest evidence of an emerging new threat to world order and U.S. security: the rise of authoritarian regional powers. China, Russia and Iran are taking advantage of American retreat to assert political and (perhaps eventually) military dominance over their corners of the globe. They share a goal of reducing U.S. influence, bending neighbors to their political will, and ultimately using that regional base of power to diminish the global sway of Western democracies, especially the U.S.”.

    China, however, is the greatest threat, they argue. “Perhaps the greatest long-term regional threat is a rising China with its rapid economic growth and desire to restore the Middle Kingdom to what its leaders see as their rightful dominance in East Asia. New Supreme Leader Xi Jinping has jettisoned Deng Xiaoping’s strategy of foreign-policy caution in favor of a new muscular nationalism,” building up China’s military and building bases in the South China Sea.

    These “anti-democratic” regimes go beyond asserting power in their own region, the Urinal writes. “They protect other despots and search for ways to undermine U.S. allies. They can also form alliances with one another [BRICS, perhaps? — ed.], as Russia has with Iran on Syria and by selling its anti-aircraft system to Tehran. Over time regional powers can also become global threats, as Japan and Germany did a century ago, especially if they form authoritarian alliances.”

    Most interestingly, the editorial dredges up the completely discredited neocons, whose ideology was famously exposed in the book Children of Satan:

    “Americans can’t say they weren’t warned,” writes the Journal. “Twenty-three years ago, in the waning days of the George H.W. Bush Administration, the Pentagon planning shop published a strategy document that set blocking the rise of regionally dominant powers as one of America’s most important security goals.”

De-Dollarization Du Jour: Russia Backs BRICS Alternative To SWIFT

BRICS-AIIB

  • De-Dollarization Du Jour: Russia Backs BRICS Alternative To SWIFT
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    Back in February, Russia detailed a SWIFT alternative that would link 91 domestic banks to the Central Bank of Russia.

    On the one hand, the plan represented yet another move towards global de-dollarization but on the other, was borne out of necessity when Russia began to believe it may be expelled from SWIFT as punishment for its support of rebels in Ukraine. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned of “unlimited consequences” if the West decided on a punitive SWIFT freeze.

    Two months later, Moscow would receive a seat on the SWIFT board. Now, Russia is taking de-dollarization a step further by suggesting that a BRICS alternative to SWIFT may be in the cards. RT has more

    The Central Bank of Russia has proposed a discussion about establishing an analogue to the SWIFT global network for transmission of financial information that processes $6 trillion worth of communiqués daily.

    The CBR hopes to cut the risks of possible disruptions.
    “Seriously speaking, there is no analogue to SWIFT at the moment in the world, it is unique.The only topic that may be of interest to all of us within BRICS is to consider and talk over the possibility of setting up a system that would apply to the BRICS countries, used as a backup,” said Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Olga Skorobogatova on Friday.

    This comes as Russia (which, incidentally, is the second heaviest SWIFT user) is set to convene a BRICS summit in Ulfa on July 8-9 where the $100 billion BRICS bank will officially be launched along with a $100 billion currency reserve. Much like the China-led AIIB, the BRICS bank is in many ways a response to the failure of US-dominated multilateral institutions to meet the needs of modernity and offer representation that’s commensurate with the economic clout of its members.

Israel’s War on Palestinian Fishermen, Farmers and Children

https://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/ashkenazis-self-styled-jews-are-not-the-descendants-of-the-ancient-israelites/

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Israel’s War on Palestinian Fishermen, Farmers and Children
    by Stephen Lendman(Jew), http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/  
    Israeli viciousness has no limits. Palestinians are systematically brutalized for not being Jewish. They’re harassed, intimidated, persecuted, arrested, imprisoned, tortured and murdered in cold blood. High crimes too grave to ignore have been commonplace since Israel’s so-called war of independence.

    At the time, 78% of historic Palestine was stolen for exclusive Jewish development. Israel took the rest in June 1967, including East Jerusalem. Jerusalem is an international city under a UN protectorate. Israeli claims to the city have no legitimacy. Nor does any nation have the right to breach international laws, norms and standards.

    Israel does multiple times daily with impunity. Little reported war on Palestine continues daily. Attacks on nonthreatening Palestinian fishermen occur almost daily. They’re shot at, wounded and arrested.

    Their boats and fishing gear are damaged and/or confiscated. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) calls Israel’s policy of preventing Palestinian fishermen from pursuing their livelihoods “a form of collective punishment which is prohibited (under) international humanitarian law and international human rights law.” PCHR described one early May incident as follows:

    “Israeli gunboats stationed off al-Waha shore, northwest of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip, opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats sailing within less than one nautical mile from the beach.”  “An Israeli gunboat approached a fishing boat belonging to ‘Issa Nafez Abu Riyalah and Ra’ed Sa’id al-‘Ashi, both from al-Shati’ refugee camp in Gaza City.”  

    “The fishing boat was boarded by Mohammed No’man Rabi’a al-Sultan (23) and Hatem al-‘Abed ‘Ashour al-Sultan (29). Both are from al-Salatin neighborhood in Beit Lahia.”  “The Israeli naval soldiers forced the fishermen to jump into the water and swim towards the Israeli gunboat. The Israeli soldiers then arrested the two fishermen and confiscated their boat.” 

    “As a result of this attack, 17 pieces of fishing nets were lost.” The area where the incident occurred experienced “heavy (Israeli) shooting” at Palestinian fishermen.

    On Saturday, Maan News reported Israeli attacks on Palestinian fishermen off central Gaza’s coast. They followed other earlier in the week attacks. Separately on Saturday, Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian farmers in eastern Khan Younis. According to Maan News:

    “Saturday’s events come as Israeli forces have escalated attacks against Gazan Palestinians inside of the Israeli-implemented and controlled buffer zone.” 

    “Gaza-based Israeli watchdog Al Mezan (Center for Human Rights) documented Israeli forces opening fire in the border areas six separate times during the first ten days of May, leaving four injured including one child.”

    Al Mezan “reiterate(d) its calls on the international community to promptly intervene in order to halt Israel’s violations.”

    Gaza is occupied Palestinian territory. It’s lawlessly blockaded – for political, not security reasons. World leaders do nothing to enforce fundamental international law.

    They let Israel operate lawlessly – including committing mass slaughter and destruction at its discretion against Palestinians posing no threat.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

IMF Chief Says Greece Euro Exit “A Possibility”

  • Published on May 28, 2015
    The head of the International Monetary Fund says a Greek exit from the eurozone is a possibility. Christine Lagarde said such a move would not be easy, but it would not signify an end to the single currency. The IMF chief also rejected Athens’ assertion that a deal with its international lenders to unlock bailout funds is imminent. Lagarde’s remarks came as an EU spokesman earlier said Greece and its lenders are three quarters of the way to reach an agreement to unlock much-needed bailout funds. The Greek team is now in Brussels with the aim of concluding the deal within the next days. If Athens fails to come to the deal, there is a fear it could default on its loans.

US-Russia Nuclear War Threatens Whole World

  • Published on May 29, 2015
    A political commentator says the Pentagon’s decision to send nuclear bombers to Sweden will increase the risk of a nuclear war between the United States and Russia. Joaquin Flores, who is the director of the Center for Syncretic Studies in Belgrade, Serbia, made the remarks when asked to comment about a recent report that the Pentagon would send the B-52 Stratofortress to Sweden to conduct a military exercise on June 13. Military tensions between Washington and Kremlin have escalated steadily since April 2014, when the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea reunited with the Russian Federation following a referendum a month earlier. Washington accuses Moscow of arming and supporting pro-Russian forces fighting in the predominantly Russian-speaking areas in eastern Ukraine. Moscow calls the accusations “groundless.” The United States plans to bolster its armored presence and keep rotations of American troops in Eastern Europe to provide “deterrence against Russian aggression.” “This is quite a move of desperation on the part of the United States,” Flores said. 


    “For a whole generation or two in the United States and in the Soviet Union grew up with the fear of a potential nuclear war between the two superpowers and the whole social movement for peace arose up decades ago calling on world leaders to act responsibly not to start tension and to understand that a nuclear war would possibly be an end to all life on the earth with the exception of cockroaches and microbes,” the analyst told Press TV on Sunday. “A nuclear war has no real target in the sense that a nuclear war would probably be the end for everybody,” he added. “We were told in decades following the 90s that a nuclear war was off the table [and] that we’ve entered into nuclear peace and prosperity,” said Flores.

Official Figures: US Economy Shrank by 0.7% in January-March Period

  • Published on May 29, 2015
    In the US, official figures indicate that the economy got off to an even weaker start this year than previously estimated. The US Commerce Department reported on Friday that the overall economy shrank at an annual rate of point-seven percent in the January to March period. The figure, measured by gross domestic product, was a reversal of the initial point-two percent growth for the period reported last month. It also marked the first decline in economic output in the U-S since the first three months of 2014, when the economy contracted at a two-point-one percent rate. Economists believe a large trade deficit and slower consumer spending as well as harsh winter weather caused the downward revision. However, they are expecting a rebound in the current quarter, hoping the economy would strengthen later this year.

Soros, NATO, US Color Revolution Machine Behind Macedonia Unrest

  • Published on May 29, 2015
    Macedonia is a critical link for getting Gaxprom Turk Stream gas into the European market and this is something that the US government is completely against..


    The fact that George Soros is partnering again with the Serbian based Canvas group reveals a greater plan to instigate a Ukraine Maidan style of overthrow, and possible wider conflict in the heart of Europe.

    A leaked memo shows that George Soros NGOs commissioned Serbian regime change specialist group, Canvas, to recruit Macedonian students to push for protest ideas, with the best two winning $1,500 for betraying their nation.

    George Soros is most well-known for playing a major role in the funding and facilitating of the “Bulldozer Revolution” in Serbia that overthrew Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, Georgia’s “Rose Revolution” of 2003, the 2006 push to move Turkey toward a more Islamist governing structure, and even the Occupy movement in the United States among a great many others – none of which brought anything other than greater misery, impoverishment, and police state mechanisms to bear on the general public. The Occupy movement, being the only exception, still brought nothing to its participants except the opportunity to burn off excess anger and energy along with a few cracked protester skulls.

    In addition, George Soros has been heavily involved in the social unrest and movement-wrecking activity that has taken place all across the United States in recent months. From Florida to Ferguson and then on to Baltimore, George Soros’ Foundations have been involved in making sure that not only are American citizens unable to overcome racial divisions with mutual cooperation but that even the racially isolated participants are unable to accomplish anything of substance.

Swedish Politician: US is the True Cause of the Masses of Refugees from the Middle East; Al Qaeda and ISIS Created, Funded, Trained and Armed By the CIA

ISIS_HQ_Langley_Virginia_CIA

  • Dr. John Coleman Ex. British Intelligence
    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists (Illuminati) are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.

  • Emphasis mine:
  • Swedish Politician: US is the True Cause of the Masses of Refugees from the Middle East; Al Qaeda and ISIS Created, Funded, Trained and Armed By the CIA
    by News Voice, via Global Research News  
    By Jens Jerndal, spokesman for the political party Unity (Enhet)
    The present Swedish debate about war refugees from the Middle East is an example of peer restricted expression. In the name of political correctness or perceived decency, any questioning of maximum generosity in opening Swedish borders for the refugees is indignantly rejected by the official mainstream. We have a humanitarian duty towards those who are forced to flee from areas ravaged by war, and there is no excuse for not opening our borders to them. – Sure.

    BUT, what about exercising our brains and identifying the root of the evil? 
    What about trying to stop the refugee problem from arising in the first place? – What about applying an overall holistic perspective to detect the real, original cause of the problem? – And demand that those who caused the problem also take care of its consequences? – And that they immediately stop causing any more of it?


    Our politically mandated media will not discuss who is ultimately responsible for the endless stream of refugees. 
    OK, they have us believe that it is all caused by terrorist organizations, by Muslim fanatics, against whom all the military might of the world is powerless.

    And yet
    , we don´t need to be very brilliant or dig very deep to clearly see who and what is the real cause of today´s refugee problem.


    * Who caused the devastation of Iraq with a million dead and many more mutilated, disabled, bereaved, and homeless? – Admittedly without reason or provocation.
    * Who caused the same thing in Libya, and now in Syria?
    * Not to mention Afghanistan and several more countries in Africa.

    As you may realize, the culprit is not a spontaneously self-organized little group of fanatic islamists, that neither the US nor NATO is able to contain. If you really thought that, think again!

    The USA has spent many trillions of dollars during the last decade alone, on its ”defence” against these dangerous terrorists all over the world. And it is this ”defence” which, without provocation, bombed to smithereens more than half a dozen Muslim countries and thus caused the
    profuse stream of refugees to the affluent countries of the EU.

    Incidentally, it is now well known that both Al Qaeda and ISIS were created, funded, trained and armed by the CIA and other US security and military agencies themselves, in order to stir up violence that could then be used as excuses to intervene with military force towards covert political and financial ends. All according to objective international analysts, coinciding with highly credible sources within the US establishment itself.

Russia Stations Iskander Missiles in Kaliningrad: NATO Cries Wolf

Template2011

  • Russia Stations Iskander Missiles in Kaliningrad: NATO Cries Wolf
    by http://sputniknews.com/  
    The deployment of Iskander-M missile complexes in Kaliningrad will “fundamentally change the balance of security in Europe,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said during a speech at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies on Wednesday.


    Stoltenberg described Moscow’s actions as “unjustified, destabilizing and dangerous” while adding that the alliance did not wish to deepen its confrontation with Russia.

    In Moscow President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov dismissed the NATO chief’s words about Moscow allegedly using military drills as a cover for moving troops to Ukrainian territory as “irrelevant.”

    On Wednesday, Czech General Petr Pavel who will assume office of Chairman of the NATO Military Committee on June 1, 2015, said that Russia is capable of seizing the Baltic countries and the Ukrainian capital of Kiev within two days.

    The general also believes that if Russia launched an offensive then NATO forces would be incapable of repelling the attack.

    Major General Mikhail Matvievsky, chief of Strategic Missile Forces and the Artillery of the Russian Ground Forces, said earlier this month that a missile brigade redeployed to the Kaliningrad region would be equipped with Iskander-M complexes before 2018.

    The Iskander-M (also referred to as NATO’s reporting name SS-26 Stone) is characterized by high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to place the system in operational readiness.

    The system is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 500 kilometers, with a precision of around 30 centimeters. It can hit adversary troops or underground command centers, depending on the warheads placed on the rockets. The system can also fire high-precision R-500 cruise missiles.
