Oliver Stone: Trump’s “Taken Handcuffs Off War Machine” Giving Generals War At Any Cost

World War 3 is near?

  • Oliver Stone: Trump’s “Taken Handcuffs Off War Machine” Giving Generals War At Any Cost
    by Mac Slavo, April 20th, 2017,
    Is there anything holding back all out war? Not if they want the war to happen at this time. Everything is arranged, the sparks and incendiaries are set and placed for a spectacular and deadly show of destruction on a grand, global setting. What’s more, all the players in the game have proven more than willing to engage, indeed hungry for a chance to jump into war.

    Director and political historian Oliver Stone sounds off on the march to war, and the disappointing blind aggression of Trump’s presidency. …. via Oliver Stone’s Facebook:

    “So It Goes”
    I confess I really had hopes for some conscience from Trump about America’s wars, but I was wrong — fooled again! — as I had been by the early Reagan, and less so by Bush 43. Reagan found his mantra with the “evil empire” rhetoric against Russia, which almost kicked off a nuclear war in 1983 — and Bush found his ‘us against the world’ crusade at 9/11, in which of course we’re still mired.

    It seems that Trump really has no ‘there’ there, far less a conscience, as he’s taken off the handcuffs on our war machine and turned it over to his glorified Generals — and he’s being praised for it by our ‘liberal’ media who continue to play at war so recklessly. What a tortured bind we’re in. There are intelligent people in Washington/New York, but they’ve lost their minds as they’ve been stampeded into a Syrian-Russian groupthink, a consensus without asking — ‘Who benefits from this latest gas attack?’ Certainly neither Assad nor Putin. The only benefits go to the terrorists who initiated the action to stave off their military defeat. It was a desperate gamble, but it worked because the Western media immediately got behind it with crude propagandizing about murdered babies, etc. No real investigation or time for a UN chemical unit to establish what happened, much less find a motive. Why would Assad do something so stupid when he’s clearly winning the civil war? No, I believe America has decided somewhere, in the crises of the Trump administration, that we will get into this war at any cost, under any circumstances — to, once again, change the secular regime in Syria, which has been, from the Bush era on, one of the top goals — next to Iran — of the neoconservatives. At the very least, we will cut out a chunk of northeastern Syria and call it a State.

    Abetted by the Clintonites, they’ve done a wonderful job throwing America into chaos with probes into Russia’s alleged hacking of our election and Trump being their proxy candidate (now clearly disproved by his bombing attack) — and sadly, worst of all in some ways, admitting no memory of the same false flag incident in 2013, for which again Assad was blamed (see Seymour Hersh’s fascinating deconstruction of this US propaganda, ‘London Review of Books’ December 19, 2013, “Whose sarin?”). No memory, no history, no rules — or rather ‘American rules.’

    On Morning Joe, Carl Bernstein says that because he’s Jewish, he could be permitted to reveal on national television that “Jewish” neo-cons were responsible for persuading President George W. Bush into starting an “insane” war against Iraq.

  • “The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservatives, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.”
    – Ari Shavit Ha’aretz News Service (Israel) April 5, 2003

    “A new generation has its hands on the tiller of power…Jewish neocons have emerged as the Pentagon’s Paladins…Most striking is how unmentionable this is in the liberal press…These well-placed hawks are Jewish-Americans and it is their hardcore Zionism that is shaping American foreign policy. Zionism is fast becoming a poisoned chalice…There is real madness here, but who will stop it?”

Dr. Cynthia McKinney: Deconstructing The Deep State. “Congress Is Nothing But Theatrics”

  • Published on Apr 15, 2017
    OffPlanet Radio Randy Maugans & Emily Moyer with guest, Cynthia McKinney

    Official Facebook Page: 

    Former Congresswoman and 2008 Green Party US Presidential Candidate, Cynthia McKinney joins us for a look inside the dark workings of the military-industrial-intelligence complex.

    She was a vocal critic of the government’s response to Hurricane Katrina, introduced legislation to release documents related to the murders of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Tupac Shakur. She was also the first Member of Congress to file articles of impeachment against George W. Bush; during her terms, she voted against every war-funding bill put before her. In 2008, Cynthia McKinney won the Green Party nomination and ran for U.S. President.

    Today, from her present base in Bangladesh, McKinney continues to speak out, despite the harassment and reprisals that followed her bold inquiries into the actions of high ranking politicians, military officers, powerful defense contractors, and her own colleagues. 12 years after leaving Congress, she is now being vindicated as the crimes of criminal theft, human trafficking, and sweetheat deals with military contractors all emerge.; She say that we are at a critical mass of people waking up. That the emergence of the alternative media now challenges the hegemony and corruption of the mainstream media.

    That whistleblowers like Cybele Edmunds, and the exposure of deep political intrigue in the ongoing investigations by YouTube journalist, George Webb are closing the loop on the truth behind the scenes in Washington, D.C. Over 90 minutes we cover an array of topics, with Cynthia, who as always, is outspoken, exuberant, and completely passionate about human rights and breaking the chains of oppression by the Elites.

Trump Has Lost Control Over the Pentagon

  • Trump Has Lost Control Over the Pentagon
    The Pentagon’s more aggressive military approach
    Here is a short timeline of the Pentagon taking the presidential commander-in-chief power from Trump. The ultimatums came on March 1. On March 1, 2017 the Atlantic’s article “Trump and the Generals” announced that Trump’s military leaders “increasingly sound like they’re working for a different president altogether.

    They complained about the lack of funding, even after Trump pledged to give them additional $54 billion that were cut from the budget of non-military agencies.  Right after the budget announcement, it became immediately obvious that the Pentagon considered this sum to be ridiculously small for their ambitions.

    They also balked at Trump’s election promise to fire many “Obama’s generals.” One of those generals openly voicing their opposition to Trump’s policies is General Tony Thomas of U.S. Special Operations Command. He reportedly said that “he wanted Americans to understand those elite counterterrorism operations are occurring nightly.” Meaning that they not just need more money, but more independence to operate.

    As per the Atlantic, the “generals don’t much like to talk about “winning” against terrorism. They understand and tell the public and congress that the United States is in a 10-, 30-, 100- year battle against a multi-generational ideological war of ideas that goes far beyond the military battlefield.”

    The article links to the Center for a New American Security’s publication: Virtual Caliphate – Defeating ISIL on the Physical Battlefield Is Not Enough. The same article in the Atlantic also went on listing some other problems that the Generals had with Trump.

    “Over and over, Trump has heard his generals, then gone to the microphone or Twitter and ignored them—a pattern he began on the campaign trail. In September, Trump said he’d likely place new generals in charge of the ISIS war and that the ones in charge had been “embarrassing” under Obama, who he said had marginalized them.”

1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria, Foreshadows Current Crisis

  • 1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria, Foreshadows Current Crisis
    by Tyler Durden,
    Prophetically foreshadowing the current crisis (and apparent action plan), leaked CIA documents from the reign of Bashar al-Assad’s father in the 1980s show a Washington Deep State plan coalescing to “bring real muscle to bear against Syria,” toppling its leader (in favor of one amenable to US demands) , severing ties with Russia (its primary arms dealer), and paving the way for an oil and gas pipeline of Washington’s choosing.

    As’s Brandon Turbeville detailed (just a day before Trump unleashed his Tomahawks), as the Syrian crisis enters its sixth year, the Donald Trump administration is looking more and more like the Obama administration every day. With the Trump regime refusing to open useful dialogue with Russia regarding Syria, its obvious anti-Iran and pro-Israel positioning, and support for a very questionable “safe zone” plan for Syria, the odds of a rational U.S. policy in regards to Syria has lower and lower odds of existence as time progresses.

    Yet, despite the fact that the Trump administration is apparently poised to continue the Obama regime’s proxy war of aggression against the people of Syria, an example of seamless transition, it should also be remembered that the plan to destroy Syria did not begin with Obama but with the Bush administration.

    Even now, as the world awaits the continuation of the Syrian war through a Democratic and Republican administration, the genesis of that war goes back to the Republican Bush administration, demonstrating that there is indeed an overarching agenda and an overarching infrastructure of an oligarchical deep state intent on moving forward regardless of which party is seemingly in power.

Ex-UK Ambassador To Syria Questions Chemical Attack; “It Doesn’t Make Sense, Assad Is Not Mad”

  • Ex-UK Ambassador To Syria Questions Chemical Attack; “It Doesn’t Make Sense, Assad Is Not Mad”
    by Tyler Durden,
    The former UK ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, has joined the chorus of folks implying that the chemical attack in Syria wreaks of a ‘false flag’ operation.  Speaking on BBC Radio earlier, Ford said there is “no proof that the cause of the explosion was what they said it was” and that it simply wouldn’t make sense for Assad to launch such an attack as it would be totally self-defeating.”

    “There is no proof that the cause of the explosion was what they said it was.
      Remember what happened in Iraq…I’ve seen testimony alleged from witnesses who said they saw chemical bombs dropping from the air.  Well, you can not see chemical weapons dropping from the air.  Such testimony is worthless.”

    “But think about the consequences because this is not likely to be the end of it. It doesn’t make sense that Assad would do it.  Lets not leave our brains outside the door when we examine evidence.  It would be totally self-defeating as shown by the results…Assad is not mad.”

    As we pointed out yesterday, Ford’s comments seemingly align with the opinion of former Representative Ron Paul who argued that there was a 0% chance that Assad deliberately launched a chemical weapons attack on Syrian citizens.

    “Who benefits?”
    “It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,” said Paul.

    Meanwhile, this CNN anchor was left speechless Wednesday during a televised interview when a congressman questioned the mainstream narrative that Bashar al-Assad attacked his own people with chemical weapons.

    “It’s hard to know exactly what’s happening in Syria right now. I’d like to know specifically how that release of chemical gas, if it did occur — and it looks like it did — how that occurred,”
    Representative Thomas Massie told CNN’s Kate Bolduan.

    Because frankly, I don’t think Assad would have done that. It does not serve his interests. It would tend to draw us into that civil war even further.”

    “I don’t think it would’ve served Assad’s purposes to do a 
    chemical attack on his people…It’s hard for me to understand why he 
    would do that — if he did.”

The Debate: Washington Warmongering

  • Published on Mar 30, 2017
    “Our concern is not with the people of Iran, it is with their revolutionary government.” Those words set the mood of US General Joseph Votel’s testimony on the Islamic Republic of Iran in front of the House Armed Services Committee. His words included blame on Iran for what he called “a destabilizing role”, while also calling it the greatest long-term threat to stability in the entire Middle East region; yet ironically there was no mention of close US allies who continue to motivate, fund & arm terrorism. In his view, the United States must be prepared to militarily disrupt Iran’s regional influence. In this edition of the debate, we discuss the latest Iranophobic rhetoric out of Washington. Guests:

    – Managing Editor, Veterans Today, Jim W. Dean (Atlanta)
    – Congressional Defense Policy Advisor, Frederick Peterson (Richmond)

  • Daniel 7:23 (New King James Version)
    23 “Thus he said:
    ‘The fourth beast shall be
    A fourth kingdom on earth,
    Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
    And shall devour the whole earth,

    Trample it and break it in pieces.

    Daniel 11:36-39 (New King James Version)
    “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God[a] of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

    38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.
