US Strategic Command Boasts about Its Bombs in Disturbing New Year Message

  • US Strategic Command Boasts about Its Bombs in Disturbing New Year Message
    The world is ringing-in 2019 with good cheer, but the US Strategic Command (STRATCOM) has a different kind of fireworks in mind. On New Year’s Eve, it showed off footage of stealth bombers and big explosions.

    STRATCOM’s New Year’s greetings come in the form of a 40-second video of the B-2 Spirit bomber in flight. The aircraft deploys two GBU-57s – huge bunker buster bombs known as Massive Ordnance Penetrators – which hit a target on the testing grounds.

    “Times Square tradition rings in the New Year by dropping the big ball… if ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger,”
     STRATCOM tweeted, referring to the traditional celebration in New York City and it’s dropping crystal ball.

    The bizarre message got almost 2,000 likes and close to 1,000 retweets before it was removed. Just as many people replied – and most of them were not happy, to put it mildly.

    “Delete this”
     was a running theme, while some of the current and former military reacted with “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” which should be read as an acronym.

Merry Christmas, Israel is Building 2,191 New Settlement Housing Units on Palestinian Land

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

  • Merry Christmas, Israel is Building 2,191 New Settlement Housing Units on Palestinian Land
    In 2018, the government advanced thousands of housing units, including most which can be found in isolated settlements deep inside the West Bank, outside Israel’s pre-1967 borders. These are settlements that, in any two-state solution, Israel will have to evacuate. According to Peace Now, those who build these places have no intention of achieving peace and a two-state solution.

    The latest announcement, which as an aside was cynically passed on Christmas while most Western governments are on holiday, shows that Netanyahu is willing to sacrifice Israeli interests in favor of an election gift to the settlers in an attempt to attract a few more votes from his right-wing flank. F
    rom Peace NowAPN


    * On 12/25 and 12/26, the Higher Planning Committee approved construction plans for 2,191 housing units in existing settlements. Another plan for 68 new housing units in Givat Ze’ev was discussed but no decision has yet been made.

    * 87% of the units approved can be found in the isolated settlements that Israel will likely need to evacuate within the framework of a two-state agreement: 1,908 units east of the proposed route of the Geneva Initiative; 283 units west of it.

    * 1,159 housing units have been approved for validation (the final major hurdle before it is possible to issue building permits) and 1,032 housing units approved for deposit (the first stage of the planning process after which the deposit of the plan is published).

    * Two plans are designed to regulate illegal outposts, giving them legal status – Ibei Hanahal and Gvaot.

    * One plan establishes a new settlement adjacent to the Mitzpeh Danny outpost in the form of an educational institution with boarding schools and residential units.
    * Three plans for new settlements in the form of new industrial zones.

    * In 2018 in total, the amount of units in plans advanced came to 5,618 units, of which 83% (4,672) are in the isolated settlements east of the Geneva Initiative line.

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

  • “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

MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Proven

  • MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Proven
    Finally, a clear and convincing — and unrefuted — case can now be presented to the public, as to precisely whom the guilty party was, that downed the MH17 Malaysian airliner over Ukraine on 17 July 2014, and why it was done. The complete case, which will be fully documented here, displays unequivocally who needed the MH17 murders (of 298 persons) to be perpetrated. This mass-murder was done for one leader’s very pressing obsession. For him, it simply had to be done, and done at that precise time.

    The full MH17 case will be presented here, to be judged by the public, because no court of law which possesses the power to bring this (or even any) case on the MH17 murders, is willing to do so, and because the evidence in this 17 July 2014 case has become overwhelming, and is unrefuted. This evidence is accepted by both sides. But it still remains effectively hidden from the publics in the United States and its allied countries. (The present news-report, which is the first ever to present this entire case, is submitted to all news-media in English-speaking countries, so that any of them that wishes to provide its audience access to this uncontested and conclusive evidence in the MH17 case can do so, by publishing this article. Any of them that won’t, don’t want their audience to have access to the conclusive evidence in this case, because this article is being made available to all of them to publish, free of charge; so, there is no other reason not to publish it.)
    With the passage now of years, the precise cause of the shooting-down of the Malaysian passenger plane MH17 on 17 July 2014 has been becoming clearer and clearer, despite the rigorous continuing attempts by Western ‘news’ media to cover it up and to hide from the public the growing and by-now irrefutable evidence (presented here) that clearly shows what and who actually brought down this airliner.

    In the years since I headlined on August 24th of 2014 the news, “MH-17 ‘Investigation’: Secret August 8th Agreement Seeps Out: Perpetrator of the Downing in Ukraine, of the Malaysian Airliner, Will Stay Hidden”, the key fact about the official ‘investigation’ has actually been that the Government of Ukraine was, on 8 August 2014, granted veto-power over any official finding which would be produced by the Joint Investigative Team. On 20 November 2014, Russian Television headlined “Dutch government refuses to reveal ‘secret deal’ into MH17 crash probe” and reported that Holland’s science-publishers Elsevier had filed for this information under that country’s Freedom of Information Act, and the Government simply refused to comply with that law. The leaders of Western nations apparently want the black-box and much other basic data in their possession to remain hidden, and the four nations had signed this secret agreement to allow the Government of Ukraine to block any report that incriminates Ukraine in the MH17 shoot-down. But additional evidence has nonetheless become public, and all of it confirms and adds yet further details to the explanation that was first put forth by the retired German Lufthansa pilot Peter Haisenko, whose independent investigation had concluded that Ukrainian Government fighter-jets intentionally shot down this civilian plane. He did not rule out the possibility that a Buk missile had simultaneously been used there, but he made clear that at least one fighter-jet had been used in this shoot-down.

    However, if those parts of a Buk missile, which were the focus of the Netherlands team’s presentation on May 24th, were indeed retrieved from the crash-site as that team claims, then a Buk missile had also hit the MH17. Serious question would nonetheless exist as to whether that Buk was fired by troops who were working for Ukraine, or instead for Russia (or else for Donbas separatists who were working in conjunction with Russia, which was Ukraine’s and America’s original version of the event).

    Precisely what the method was, by which the direct perpetrators brought down the MH17, has gradually become clearer, despite this continuation of Western secrecy (and Ukraine’s veto-power over the ‘findings’) regarding the contents of the black boxes, and of the US satellite images, and of the Ukrainian air-traffic-control radar recordings, and of other evidence-sources that are still being held secret by The West and not made available to their ‘news’ media nor to anyone outside a tight official circle of those Western nations’ intelligence agencies.

    But now, Russia has actually — on 17 September 2018 — exposed the outright fraudulence of the JIT’s 24 May 2018 presentation, and The West (the US Government’s allies) entirely ignored the conclusive evidence that that presentation by the JIT itself actually contained and to which Russia was pointing, so that there can no longer be reasonable doubt about The West’s intentional and still ongoing fraudulence regarding the entire MH17 matter.

    Also entirely ignored in the Ukrainain team’s ‘explanation’ of the event is why Ukraine’s air-traffic control had guided the MH17’s pilot to fly over the conflict-zone where Ukraine’s civil war was being waged and where Ukraine’s war-planes were bombing. The MH17’s pilot was instructed by Ukraine’s air-traffic control to take that path instead of the one that the airline had planned and that had become normal during the civil war. This was highly abnormal, and it doomed the MH17. Clearly, only Ukraine’s Government could, and did, do that — change the route, and for only that one plane. Yet, still, the Netherlands-headed team blames Russia and is trusted in The West, but Russia is not. (Now, why would that be?)

34 Reasons Why War with Russia Is Inevitable

  • 34 Reasons Why War with Russia Is Inevitable
    by Dave Hodges,
    I frequently hear the following: Russia is a Christian nation. Putin is good Christian man. Russia only wants to defend its borders. Putin  is the only obstacle between the New World Order and the people of the world. Perhaps this is true, but Putin is indeed preparing to start World War III and he has been for the past four years. This could be a war that will kill billions, destroy nations and threaten all of humanity.

    Putin’s Dual Path of Diplomacy
    First, Putin would very much like to pursue a partnership with the United State and China to stop the globalist bankers (ie the New World Order in its tracks). Howeve,r the globalists are keeping Putin and Trump apart with the phony Russian-collusion-delusion nonsense. This strategy will be analyzed in more detail in tomorrow’s Part II of this series.

    Secondly, Putin is also pursuing a second dual path of diplomacy with both the United States and the rest of the world. Let’s not forget that Putin was the brainchild behind the BRICS nations break-away from Central banking of the control of the oil reserves through the Petrodollar. This is why the world sits poised to fight a third world war over Syria and Iran.

    Putin may indeed be motivated by Christian desire to not submit to the Satanic globalists. He has indeed threatened to nuke them if they make move with Russia. But if Putin believes that Trump will lose control of America to the globalists, he will attack the United States with everything he has.

    Thirty-Three Reasons Why War With Russia, In Syria Is Inevitable
    There are 33 reasons proving that Putin is preparing to start World War III.

    1. Several years ago, I wrote about the face-off between American paramilitary forces (i.e. Academi, formerly Blackwater) and Russian paramilitary forces (i.e.  Vnevedomstvenaya Okhrana) in Ukraine. America and Russia are already spilling each other’s blood.

    2. Also in May of 2014, the Western media was suspiciously silent about the Russians airlifting critical supplies which would be used to support a war effort in Eastern Ukraine. Yet, Russia’s Novostinews service is openly reporting  that Ammunition for Special Forces is being airlifted for Slaviansk Operation.”This is highly significant because Ukraine Denetsk region is asking to join Russia. Other regions are likely to follow. Russia is further airlifting ammunition into the same region. Even Ray Charles could see that this constitutes preparations for war in Ukraine and that this ammunition has gone to support the paramilitary forces fighting in Ukraine!

VICE: The Dick Cheney/Rumsfeld Conspiracy

  • VICE: The Dick Cheney/Rumsfeld Conspiracy
    by Martin Armstrong,
    I went to go watch VICE – the story about how Dick Cheney took over the government with the aid of his wife – Lynne Cheney. Vice is a film that seeks to bring complicated information about the inner corruption in Washington and transform it into a digestible and entertaining format. There is no question that Christian Bale delivered a very impressive performance of how Dick Cheney really is – a secretive and distant man whose eyes were always filled with naked contempt. Amy Adams gave a fantastic performance as well and captured the real character of the former Second Lady Lynne Cheney who was very much like her husband – ambitious, and equally just as ruthless.

    While the film captures the reality of what took place, it completely misses the real story behind the scenes as to even how Cheney came to be Vice President. The film shows that he was out of politics and had effectively retired for some time. It pretends that George Bush called him to be his Vice President and they negotiate that Cheney will have most of the power and Bush was too stupid to understand what he was agreeing to.

    Now to the issue of Cheney becoming Vice President. I was asked to go to Texas to meet with George Bush, Jr during the early summer of 1999. I was told that “this is different. He’s really stupid.” Up to that point, the entire process I was involved in was to assess the qualification of those who wanted to run for President. Suddenly I was told this was different. When I asked why would you make someone stupid President, the response was “he has the name.”

    I was then asked if I would accept the position of Chief Economic Adviser in the White House. I was told BECAUSE Bush was stupid, which they play well in the movie, that they needed to surround him with smart people. I declined because to take such a position meant I would have to shut down my operation. I said thanks, but no thanks.

    The kingmakers who I would go visit potential candidates for selected the people to put around Bush – not Bush. Cheney had been Chief of Staff so he knew the game. He was inserted into the White House DELIBERATELY to be the default, President. The movie makes it sound that Bush Junior had to convince him to be his VP. That is absolutely NOT the way this selection process worked. They would NEVER have allowed the very person they said was “stupid” to select the people to run the country. They were selected to be the babysitters. I know this because I was one of the people asked and declined.

The Euro Is FAILING! Establishment DESPERATE To Prop It Up On 20th Birthday

  • World Alternative Media Published on Dec 31, 2018
    Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the 20th birthday of the Euro. On January 1st, 1999 the Euro was implemented and enforced. The currency has since shown itself to be like any other fiat currency. Worthless. In the past 20 years, the Euro has lost a vast amount of its purchasing power and while many countries use the terrible note, its relevance is dwindling. As Britain voted to leave the EU with the historic Brexit vote, there will be another vote coming up in March. Isn’t it interesting that if the establishment doesn’t get what they want, they’ll just do it over and over again until they benefit. If the Euro falls, most believe that the country will fall too.

    They forget the power of free market competing currencies and how they’ve prevailed over time. No debt servitude. No enforcement of legal tender laws. On top of that, we constantly hear about the dollar or krone or peso or euro doing better than another currency. No, they’re all rapidly devaluing. Some are just devaluing faster than others. It’s a race to the bottom as we’ve seen with all fiat currencies throughout history going back nearly 1,000 years to 1024 AD in China. When will people learn? As stock markets crumble around the world and the everything bubble pops… As the Dax in Germany sees its worst annual decline in 10 years and Deutsche Bank gets ready to crash completely… As currencies devalue into nothing throughout the world, we must decentralize everything.

    We must rule ourselves. We must be independent, self sustainable and most importantly, responsible. Freedom and responsibility are hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other. There are solutions, but it takes you as an individual breaking outside of that system before it is completely desecrated and you end up on the street.
