Armed Services Committee Chairman Warns US And China “Headed For World War III”

  • Armed Services Committee Chairman Warns US And China “Headed For World War III”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Given that China’s President Xi Jinping started the year by obliquely warning the US to stay out of Taiwan’s business, perhaps it’s not surprising that Senators are starting to join US military commanders in warning Americans not to underestimate the threat posed by China’s unprecedented military buildup in the Pacific.

    In the latest – and perhaps the most stark – warning to date, Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma – who recently took over as the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee – warned during a hearing about the challenges posed by China and Russia on Tuesday that people need to better understand the threats both countries pose to the international world order that America helped create, according to the Military Times.

    America has stood idly by as China has built airstrips and military bases out of a series of rocky atolls in the Spratley Archipelago, preparing to flex its military muscle in the Pacific. China’s increasingly aggressive behavior was on display last fall when a Chinese Navy ship nearly rammed the USS Decatur while it was carrying out a “freedom of operation” mission.

Wilkerson: ‘Cheney Was Evil. We Tortured, Murdered and Lied.’

  • RT America Published on Jan 30, 2019
    Rick Sanchez and others who lived through the lead-up to the US invasion of Iraq find today’s sabre rattling at Iran all-too-familiar. He has a harrowing discussion with former White House official Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who saw the neocon machinations leading to the invasion of Iraq first-hand. He discusses the countless innocent people tortured and murdered by contractors at the behest of the CIA and the absence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

No CNN… The US Intelligence Chief Actually Vindicated Trump’s Syria Exit

  • No CNN… The US Intelligence Chief Actually Vindicated Trump’s Syria Exit
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    America’s top intelligence chief has said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is set to retake the entire country in the near future. “President Bashar al-Assad has largely defeated the opposition and is now seeking to regain control over all of the Syrian territory,” Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said during a Senate committee hearing on Tuesday.

    And in comments that appeared to vindicate President Trump’s Syria withdrawal strategy predicated upon the Islamic State’s defeat, DNI Coats said that pro-Assad forces continue to “re-take territory” from what remains of ISIS while carefully avoiding war with US allies Israel and Turkey. “The regime will focus on retaking territory while seeking to avoid conflict with Israel and Turkey” DNI Coats testified. 

    This echoes a previous December statement of Trump’s wherein the president defended his Syria troop draw down based on the idea that American forces were fighting the enemies of Iran, Russia, and Syria for them (that is, fighting a jihadist insurgency that was simultaneously warring against Assad).

    “Russia, Iran, Syria & others are the local enemy of ISIS. We were doing there [sic] work. Time to come home & rebuild” — Trump had tweeted, with the implication that Damascus and its allies would inevitably finish off the dirty work of cleaning out the terror insurgency

Afghanistan: America’s Shameful War — The US Will Be in the Deepest Shame Over Involvement in the Drug Trade

U.S. soldiers inspect a cache of opium that was seized at a border police station on the outskirts of Herat, 23 October 2007. Afghan border police in the western Afghan city have seized 644 kilograms of opium. Afghanistan accounts for over 93 percent of the world’s supply of opium, the main ingredient in heroin, a lucrative trade whose proceeds in part fund some of the Taliban-led insurgency.

  • Afghanistan: America’s Shameful War — The US Will Be in the Deepest Shame Over Involvement in the Drug Trade
    by , https://ericmargolis.com/
    … The United States, champion of freedom and self-determination, is now in its 18th year of colonial war in Afghanistan. This miserable, stalemated conflict is America’s longest and most shameful war. So far it has cost over $1 trillion and killed no one knows how many Afghans.

    This conflict began in 2001 on a lie: namely that Afghanistan was somehow responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the US. These attacks were planned in Europe and the US, not Afghanistan, and apparently conducted (official version) by anti-American Saudi extremists. This writer remains unconvinced by the official versions.

    We still don’t know if Osama bin Laden instigated the attacks. He was murdered rather than brought to trial. Dead men tell no tales. However, Mullah Omar, leader of Afghanistan’s Taliban movement, told my late friend journalist Arnaud de Borchgrave that bin Laden was not involved in 9/11. Who benefited? Certainly not the Afghans. They have been at war for the past 40 years.

    As I wrote in my first book, ‘War at the Top of the World,’ Afghanistan’s Pashtun tribal majority were fierce fighters and were incredibly brave. Their Taliban movement was a tribal-nationalist-Islamist force devoted to fighting communism, drug dealing and foreign influence. Taliban stamped out the Afghan opium trade and had just about crushed the drug-dealing Russian-backed Tajik northern alliance – until the US invaded in 2001. The Afghan drug lords quickly became US allies and remain so today.

    Taliban was not a ‘terrorist movement,’ as western war propaganda falsely claimed. Twenty years earlier their fathers were hailed ‘freedom fighters’ by President Ronald Reagan when they were fighting Soviet occupation. Taliban’s Pashtun warriors wanted all foreigners out of their nation and the right to run their own affairs according to Islamic principles.

    The US has savaged Afghanistan, one of the world’s poorest countries. US B-52 and B-1 heavy bombers are razing tribal villages, predator killer drones attack most road movement, US-paid Afghan puppet forces, many former Communists, routinely torture and murder. All this while the US-installed yes-man regime in Kabul does nothing to halt massive drug dealing and human rights abuses.

    In fact, dealing in opium and morphine is the primary business of Afghanistan. This cash crop could not be exported to Pakistan, India, Iran and Russia without the connivance of the Kabul regime and its US military protectors. When the full truth about the war is finally written, the US will be in the deepest shame over involvement in the drug trade.

Viktor Orbán Joins Right-Wing Leaders’ Plan to Take Over EU – and Predicts There will be “Two Civilisations” in Europe in the Future

  • Viktor Orbán Joins Right-Wing Leaders’ Plan to Take Over EU – and Predicts There will be “Two Civilisations” in Europe in the Future
    by , https://voiceofeurope.com/
    Matteo Salvini, the right-wing Interior Minister in the Italian government, recently called for a Rome-Warsaw axis to build “a new Europe” that was against migration.

    “I’d like to create a pact, an alliance for everyone who wants to save Europe, the more of us, the better,” he said. Poland’s right-wing Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said earlier this week that “with Mr Salvini we are on the same page with regards to many European matters”. Austria’s right-wing chancellor Sebastian Kurz last year called for an anti-immigration “axis” using the same language. He then cited Italy and Germany as possible allies.

    And now Hungary’s Prime Minister has welcomed the creation of an anti-immigration “axis” in Europe as well. In a speech, Viktor Orbán said he wanted to see an anti-immigration majority in the EU institutions and that he would team up with countries like Italy and Poland to change the bloc’s direction.

    The right-wing leader said there could be no “compromise” on the migration issue and that he would have to “fight” leaders such as Emmanuel Macron to “respect Hungarians’ decision not to become an immigrant nation”. Mr Orban also said he believes there will be “two civilisations” in the EU: “one mixed Muslim-Christian in the west and one traditional, in central Europe”.

    The far right is expected to make significant gains across the continent in this year’s European parliament elections. If the UK leaves the EU as it is set to do on 29 March 2019 it will not be able to participate in the European parliament elections. The previous round of European elections in the UK were won by Ukip in 2014.

Israeli Strikes on Iran in Syria May Lead to War – U.S. Intelligence Chief

  • Israeli Strikes on Iran in Syria May Lead to War – U.S. Intelligence Chief
    by ANNA AHRONHEIM, https://www.jpost.com/
    His assessment echoes concerns raised by Israeli officials that Iran would likely increase their responses to IAF strikes in Syria.

    The top US intelligence chief warned that Israel’s ongoing strikes against Iranian targets in Syria increase the threat of regional war. 

    “We assess that Iran seeks to avoid a major armed conflict with Israel,” Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday. “However, Israeli strikes that result in Iranian casualties increase the likelihood of Iranian conventional retaliation against Israel.”

    Israeli officials have repeatedly voiced concerns over Iran’s presence in Syria and the smuggling of sophisticated weaponry to Hezbollah from Tehran to Lebanon via Syria, stressing that both are redlines for the Jewish State.

    “Iran’s efforts to consolidate its influence in Syria and arm Hezbollah have prompted Israeli airstrikes as recently as January 2019 against Iranian positions within Syria and underscore our growing concern about the long-term trajectory of Iranian influence in the region and the risk that conflict will escalate,” Coates said.

    His assessment echoes concerns raised by Israeli officials that Iran would likely increase their responses to IAF strikes in Syria. Speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv on Monday, President Reuven Rivlin warned that Tehran would likely “intensify its responses” to Israeli strikes against its forces in Syria.

    “I believe Iran will retaliate with greater force in Israel’s north,” the president said, adding “It appeared as though Iran would be restrained by our understandings with Russia and its defeats on the northern front – but in recent months, the trend is changing.”

‘US Not Just Behind Venezuelan Coup, It’s Leading It’ – Foreign Minister to RT

  • ‘US Not Just Behind Venezuelan Coup, It’s Leading It’ – Foreign Minister to RT
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Venezuela is well aware the US is actually leading an effort to topple President Maduro, but is ready to sit down with the Western-backed opposition and could be doing so “in half an hour,” the country’s Foreign Minister told RT.

    Hitting back at the Western pressure, Venezuelan government will now focus its efforts on “the main leader of the coup, the ‘director of the circus,’ namely, the US government, Mr Trump and his representatives.”

    Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza gave an inteview to RT Spanish on Sunday. Without further ado, he accused Washington of spearheading what he said an effort to overthrow democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro.


    “The US government is not just behind the coup but is leading it. We are focused on neutralizing Washington’s attacks.”

    Adding to a US-led pressure for President Maduro to step aside, Spain, France, Germany and the UK on Saturday issued the elected leader an ultimatum, calling on Maduro to call for new elections within eight days.

    “First of all, it is interventionism to the highest degree. Secondly, it is arrogant, and, thirdly, it is artificial,”Arreaza commented. The Venezuelan government will scrutinize ties with countries who backed the opposition but will not put too much emphasis on it.

    “The Bolivarian democracy only requires recognition and support from Venezuelan people,”
     he stated, adding, “other governments are of little interest to us.”

Amnesty: Israel Using Anti-Semitism to Whitewash Its War Crimes

  • Amnesty: Israel Using Anti-Semitism to Whitewash Its War Crimes
    by TOVAH LAZAROFF, https://www.jpost.com/
    Amnesty International hit back at the right-wing reaction to its report on Israel’s tourism industry over the pre-1967 lines called “Destination: Occupation,” which it published on Tuesday.

    Israeli ministers have accused Amnesty International of antisemitism to divert public attention away from the government’s “war crimes” against Palestinians in the West Bank, the group said on Wednesday.

    It hit back at the right-wing reaction to its report on Israel’s tourism industry over the pre-1967 lines called “Destination: Occupation,” which it published on Tuesday.

    The report called on the four major digital booking sites — Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia and TripAdvisor to boycott hotels, rentals and tourism sites over the pre-1967 lines. This includes Jewish sites in Jerusalem’s Old City, with its Western Wall and the Temple Mount, which are the most holy sites in Judaism.

    Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan tweeted Tuesday that Amnesty has become a leader in the anti-Semitic #BDS campaign and that is report was an “outrageous attempt to distort facts, deny Jewish heritage & delegitimize Israel.”

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

  • The Moral Decadence of Zionism
    by CONTACT@IFAMERICANSKNEW.ORG, https://israelpalestinenews.org/
    “Israel is by far the worst settler-colonial experience in history.” Israel is creating a state that permits killing of children and medics, that makes murderers into heroes. Israel is “a state based not on morality, justice, and law but brute force.” Zionism is the reason why.

    by Jeremy Salt, from Palestine Chronicle
    We have watched this for seven decades. Seven decades of unremitting, remorseless, violence. A poisonous ideology gives rise to a state, poisonous at its roots, the people poisoned by the state, indoctrinated, taught to hate and taught to kill without compunction, without conscience.


    Israel is by far the worst settler-colonial experience in history, infinitely worse than Algeria at its worst and far worse than South Africa. Its violence extends from the market bombings of the 1930s to the massacres and destruction of close to 500 Palestinian villages and hamlets in the late 1940s.

    Onwards to massacres in Gaza, Lebanon and Jordan in every single decade that has followed, along with ‘targeted’ killings and individual assassinations, many of them far from Israel’s non-declared borders. There are no exceptions. Almost all of Israel’s victims, ultimately the victims of a twisted ideology, are civilian. Apartment buildings, ambulances, and hospitals have been destroyed, paramedics killed, refugee camps bombed and leaders of Palestinian opinion murdered. The record is atrocious. The killing is deliberate, remorseless, and justified on every occasion by the politicians and the Jewish citizenry.

    GREAT MARCH OF RETURN
    In the recent killings along the Gaza fence during ‘the great march of return’ the Israeli snipers were committing war crimes, first by shooting unarmed people and second by using ammunition banned under international law, including the ‘butterfly bullet’, which has flanges opening up inside the body and designed to cause maximum damage to bone and tissue.

Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing by Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit .

  • Zionist, Moshe Sharett, who was Israeli’s first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and Prime Minister from 1954-1956 said (emphasis mine):
    In his diary, Sharett quotes a conversation with Army Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan in May 1955:

    We face no danger at all of an Arab advantage of force for the next 8-10 years…Reprisal actions which we couldn’t carry out if we were tied to a security pact are our vital lymph…they make it possible for us to maintain a high level of tension in our population and in the army. Without these actions we would have ceased to be a combative people… “

    Sharett concludes: “The state…. must see the sword as the main if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end it may — no it MUST — invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the method of provocation and revenge…. And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.

    Jews Against Zionism: (emphasis mine)
    It has been the age-old intention of Zionism to intentionally stir up anti-Semitism anywhere possible, and even more commonly, to take advantage of any Jewish suffering anywhere in order to enhance its cause. Indeed, hatred of Jews and Jewish suffering is the oxygen of the Zionist movement, and from the very beginning has been to deliberately incite hatred of the Jew and then, in feigned horror, use it to justify the existence of the Zionist state – this is, of course, Machiavellianism raised to the highest degree. Thus, the Zionists thrive on hatred and suffering of Jews, and seek to benefit thereby through keeping Jews in perpetual fear, causing them to ignore the true nature of Zionism, and instead to consider the Zionist state is their salvation.
    .…
    As far as Zionism is concerned, the founder of Zionism and apostate, Theodor Herzl, sought to intensify hatred of the Jew in order to enhance the cause of political Zionism. Here are some of his “pearls”:

    “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews. . . become worse. . . this will assist in realization of our plans. . .I have an excellent idea. . . I shall induce anti-semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. . . The anti-semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-semites shall be our best friends”. (From his Diary, Part I, pp. 16)
    …..
    There is a huge amount of literature describing how the Zionists made it very difficult to save Jews during and after World War II. As various individuals and organizations were trying to arrange departures of Jews to western countries, the Zionists worked overtime to prevent this from happening. They expressed the opinion that building up the Jewish population of Palestine was more important than enabling Jews to go to third countries, and they insisted to western powers that Jews should not be accepted anywhere other than Palestine. Indeed, Yitzchak Greenbaum, a famous Zionist, proclaimed that “one cow in Palestine was worth more than all the Jews in Poland.” The infamous David Ben-Gurion said in 1938:


    “If I knew it was possible to save all the children in Germany by taking them to England, and only half of the children by taking them to Eretz Israel, I would choose the second solution. For we must take into account not only the lives of these children but also the history of the people of Israel.”

  •  Jack Bernstein, excerpts (emphasis mine):
    “Judaism is a religion; but Zionism is a political movement started mainly by East European (Ashkenazi) Jews who for centuries have been the main force behind communism/socialism. The ultimate goal of the Zionists is one ONE-WORLD GOVERMENT UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE ZIONISTS AND THE ZIONIST-ORIENTED JEWISH INTERNATIONAL BANKERS.”

    The Ashkenazi Jews, who now compromise 90% of the Jews in the world, had a rather strange beginning. According to historians, many of them Jewish, the Ashkenazi Jews came into existence about 1,200 years ago. It happened this way:

    At the eastern edge of Europe, there lived a tribe of people know as the Khazars. About the year 740 A.D., the Khazar king and his court decided they should adopt a religion for their people. So, representatives of the three major religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism, were invited to present their religious doctrines. The Khazars chose Judaism, but it wasn’t for religious reasons. If the Khazars had chosen Islam, they would have angered the strong Christian world. If they had chosen Christianity, they would have angered the strong Islamic world. So, they played it safe — they chose Judaism. It wasn’t for religious reasons the Khazars chose Judaism; it was for political reasons.

    Sometime during the 13th century, the Khazars were driven from their land and they migrated westward with most of them settling in Poland and Russia. These Khazars are now known as Ashkenazi Jews. Because these Khazar Ashkenazi Jews merely chose Judaism, they are not really Jews — at least not blood Jews.
    ….
    God’s Chosen People
    The American people have been led to believe that Jews are “God’s Chosen People”. This myth was started by a small group of Jews. A few Jewish leaders took excerpts from the Bible and interpreted them as “Chosen People”. But, isn’t it odd that it is not the religious Jews who claim to be “God’s Chosen People.” It is the atheistic non-believing Jews who claim that honor.

    Leading the cry, “We are God’s Chosen People” are the Zionist/Marxist (Ashkenazi) Jews who for political purposes chose Judaism and who don’t have a drop of biblical Jewish blood in them.
    ….
    I’ll toss in one last thought about the “God’s Chosen People” myth: God said, ‘Beware of those who call themselves Jews and are not, for they lie’. Could it be the Ashkenazi Jews are the people to whom God was referring?

US Intel Chief Warns Israel: Iran Could Retaliate in Case of New Syria Strike

  • US Intel Chief Warns Israel: Iran Could Retaliate in Case of New Syria Strike
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The US intelligence chief’s remarks come amid smouldering tensions between Israel and Iran over the IDF’s continued airstrikes targeting alleged Iranian military sites in Syria and Tehran’s intensified anti-Israel rhetoric.

    Speaking before the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, warned that Iran was likely to attack Israel if Tel Aviv went ahead with airstrikes on alleged Iranian targets in Syria.

    “We assess that Iran seeks to avoid a major armed conflict with Israel. However, Israeli strikes that result in Iranian casualties increase the likelihood of Iranian conventional retaliation against Israel”, Coats said.

    Presenting the views of the US Intelligence Community to the Committee as part of an annual Worldwide Threat Assessment, the director claimed that Tehran’s purported efforts to expand its clout in Syria had triggered the Israeli airstrikes:

    “Iran continues to pursue permanent military bases and economic deals in Syria and probably wants to maintain a network of Shia foreign fighters there despite Israeli attacks on Iranian positions in Syria. Iran’s efforts to consolidate its influence in Syria and arm Hezbollah have promoted Israeli airstrikes as recently as January 2019 against Iranian positions within Syria and underscore our growing concern about the long-time trajectory of Iranian influence in the region and the risk that conflict will escalate”.

    Coats’s remarks appeared to echo similar comments made by Israeli officials, including President Reuven Rivlin, who had warned earlier this week that Iran might “intensify its responses” to the IDF’s strikes on Syria.

Chris Martenson: Buy Gold Before the Everything Bubble Blows Up — Global Collapse Accelerating?

  • Chris Martenson: Buy Gold Before the Everything Bubble Blows Up — Global Collapse Accelerating?
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Futurist and economic researcher Chris Martenson says a collapse is “a process, not an event.” Martenson contends the long awaited global collapse, on many fronts, has not only started, but is picking up speed. Martenson says, “Our prediction at PeakProsperity.com is these collapse trends, we have been following for 10 years now, are accelerating and continuing. None of them are reversing at this point in time. These will impact people’s future in a huge way. Environmentally, we see these signs, but we also have $245 trillion of debt in the global economy. We have been accelerating that debt cycle as if we could just keep that trend going forever—we can’t. So, what we see are all these unsustainable trends converging. They are going to happen . . . and people need to be ready.”


    Martenson lays out the case to blame central banks for much of the geopolitical and economic friction in the world today. Martenson says, “The economic pie is not expanding anymore. It’s kind of stagnant. So, if you have one tiny group taking their fair share and the pie isn’t growing, it means they are taking from somebody else. This is the essence of central banking. They don’t create wealth, they redistribute wealth. When the Federal Reserve crams rates to zero, the savers lose out, but lose to who? The winners and losers are being picked by the central banks, and they have decided that the .01% should be the winners in this story and everybody else should be the losers. . . . Central bank policies have really benefited the elites at the expense of everybody else. This brings up the most important point and that is central banks are not our friends. They are redistributive organizations.”

    Martenson also says, “Our view is if we get into a war that it will be so devastating, there really won’t be a recovery from it.” As for the elite, Martenson says, “It’s time to panic. . . . They have thrown in the towel, they have caved and are ready to go back to the print-a-thon thing. That is concerning because the financial world can’t even manage stopping their bond purchases, let alone reversing them without them panicking . . . . When a central bank can’t even flatten out their balance sheet purchases, you should be panicking.”

    Central banks cannot stop the money printing without the whole system blowing up. Maybe that is why gold is going up? Martenson says, “I believe it is. . . . I buy gold because gold is the only form of money that is not simultaneously someone else’s liability. We are talking about a world so saddled with debt, I am not sure where all the liabilities lie. I don’t trust . . . the accounting of major corporations. I don’t trust what derivatives will do in a crisis. . . . This is the ‘Everything Bubble.’ What happens when it bursts? We don’t know. So, gold, to me, is the thing I want to own and hold when you have a systemic crisis.”
