‘War is SCHEDULED’ US General Reveals Future Timeline of North Korean Nuclear Crisis

  • ‘War is SCHEDULED’ US General Reveals Future Timeline of North Korean Nuclear Crisis
    by OLI SMITH, http://www.express.co.uk/
    A US GENERAL – known for his calculated comments – shocked a television interviewer last night when he revealed that “war is scheduled” with North Korea.

    General Barry McCaffrey’s comments come as fears mount that the US and North Korea are headed towards an imminent war. The respected retired general claimed that the US would be at war with the communist regime “by next summer” during a TV interview with NBC last night. Kim Jong-Un has continued to escalate his threatening rhetoric against the United States and its allies, amid the deepening crisis on the Korean peninsula.

    The former US Army general dismissed the possibility of bringing North Korea back to the negotiating table, which he blamed on the US President Donald Trump. He said: “The problem is we’ve got so many crises going on now, potentially, that he’s overloading the diplomatic effort, as well as the US armed forces’ ability to deal with it. “I don’t want us to take our eye off North Korea.

    “The current language out of the administration, that lack of a diplomatic and serious engagement strategy, in my view, has us sliding toward war by next summer. “This war is on schedule under this administration.”

End of Petrodollar: Rise of Economic Protectionism to Reshape Global Trade

  • End of Petrodollar: Rise of Economic Protectionism to Reshape Global Trade
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The era of petrodollar recycling is drawing to an end as shifts in technology and international politics render it redundant, meaning the US is entering volatile times.

    Kristian Rouz — The rise of economic protectionism and nationalism in politics of the recent years, including the gradual implementation of US President Donald Trump’s agenda and Brexit reshaping the contours of European trade, are poised to bring an end to the petrodollar recycling. These developments signal the first overhaul of international economic relations since the Nixon administration in the early 1970s in the United States.

    The petrodollar system entailed the end of the gold standard in the US, which had its national currency pegged to the value of gold at $35 per ounce in the aftermath of World War II. However, the severe challenges that global economy faced in the late 1960s pushed the administration of Richard Milhous Nixon to abandon the system.

    “The essence of the deal was that the US would agree to military sales and defense of Saudi Arabia in return for all oil trade being denominated in US dollars,” The Huffington Post explains.

    The shale revolution in oil productionin the early 2010s rendered this system irrelevant in the US, as North America is becoming increasingly independent of crude oil imports and has, in fact, increased its own oil and petrochemical exports under President Trump.

    However, President Trump’s push for greater protectionism faces obstacles, mainly in the form of a significant Saudi investment in US Treasury bonds accrued over the past 40 years. The petrodollar system has allowed Saudi Arabia to increase its foreign reserves, and many other prominent oil-producing nations have followed the same foreign investment pattern.

    The US, on its part, was able to increase its money supply by printing dollars, which has produced major dollar devaluation, by over 30 percent since the early 1980s. Subsequently, other oil importers, in order to pay for energy, had to buy US dollars first.

War with Iran Was Planned Decades Ago

  • War with Iran Was Planned Decades Ago
    by Michael Krieger, https://libertyblitzkrieg.com/, 13 Oct 2017
    Last night, as I reflected on my recent three-part series filled with bold predictions, I began to question whether or not I was being too negative. Upon hearing Trump’s Iran speech today, I became convinced that everything I wrote had merit.

    The speech was downright terrifying, serving to confirm all my worst fears about what he’s up to in the Middle East. There’s no way you can listen to that disingenuous rant and not recognize that he’s already made up his mind about war with Iran. What comes next will be a series of U.S. imposed redlines and demands, which Iran will eventually be said to violate, at which point the U.S. will escalate bigly.

    I expect the most wretched cretins in America to rally behind the coming war push, including much of the corporate media. We already saw evidence of this earlier today.

    Many of you will accuse me of exhibiting unwarranted confidence about where all this is headed, but it’s not that. The reason I feel so strongly about this forecast is because war with Iran has been planned for decades. For proof, take a watch of this classic video of General Wesley Clark explaining the foreign policy establishment’s post 9/11 plans. (top of post)

US-Led Coalition Destroys Everything in Syria Except for ISIS-Daesh — Damascus

  • US-Led Coalition Destroys Everything in Syria Except for ISIS-Daesh — Damascus
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has said that the US-led coalition against the internationally condemned terrorist group Daesh is acting in Syria like it is trying to destroy the country and prolong the armed conflict there.

    Muallem stated that Damascus will demand that the US-coalition is dissolved. He stressed that thousands of Syrian women and children have been killed by coalition airstrikes in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor. According to the minister, Washington is using the coalition to cover up for the destruction of the country.

    The US-coalition has so far confirmed that 735 civilians have been killed by “unintentional” airstrikes in Syria and Iraq, adding that 350 more reports of civilian casualties are currently under review. At the same time the alliance has denied it is assisting Daesh terrorists in Syria.

    The Syrian minister has also touched upon a Kurdish issue in the region. He stressed that Kurdish forces are rivaling the Syrian army to gain control over the oil-rich areas of the country. He went on by saying that Damascus won’t allow any external force to violate its sovereignty.

  • Trump Sends Second Aircraft Carrier To Korean Peninsula With 7,500 Sailors, Marines Aboard
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Just one week after uttering his now-infamous “this is the calm before the storm” statement to the press ahead of a dinner with military leaders, we now learn that President Trump has dispatched a second nuclear aircraft carrier, the USS Theodore Roosevelt, filled with 7,500 marines, to the Korean Peninsula.  Of course, this comes after rumors swirled earlier this week that North Korea is preparing to fire multiple short-range rockets around the opening of the Chinese Communist Party’s twice-a-decade congress on Oct. 18th.

    The USS Theodore Roosevelt, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, is en route to the western Pacific after leaving San Diego port last week.

    The Roosevelt will focus on maritime security operations in the Pacific and Middle East, the US military announced.

    But the £3.4billion ($4.5billion) warship, known as “the Big Stick”, has been sent to boost US defence on the Korean peninsula, according to South Korean media.

    It is expected to arrive in region in the coming weeks amid fears North Korea is about to test another missile or nuclear weapon.

Deadly Conflicts: More Than 260,000 Afghan Civilians Lost Homes After US Bombings

  • RT Published on Oct 13, 2017
    Civilian casualties from air strikes in Afghanistan have increased by more than 50% compared to last year. Over 266,000 people have also been displaced since January, and are now living in makeshift shelters. RT talked to noted whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers detailing America’s real motives behind the 1970s Vietnam War. He believes there’s much to be exposed about the Afghan campaign too.

Dr. Steven Greer: Secret Groups Planning False Flag “Alien” Attack to Roll Out World Government

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 (New King James Version)
    9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
  • Dr. Steven Greer: Secret Groups Planning False Flag “Alien” Attack to Roll Out World Government
    by , https://www.naturalnews.com/
    (Natural News) As part of our ongoing effort to explore our universe and seek answers to really big questions, we recently interviewed Dr. Steven Greer, M.D.

    Dr. Greer, a prominent UFO researcher and emergency room physician, founder of Sirius Disclosure and creator of the popular new documentary Unacknowledged, explains that he believes many so-called “UFO sightings” are actually sightings of human-made aircraft, and that super secret groups exist inside the U.S. government which plan to stage a faked, “false flag” alien invasion attack in order to roll out globalist government that tramples individual human liberties forever.

    Whether or not you agree with his analysis, Dr. Greer is an intriguing and highly intelligent individual who has uncovered an astonishing wealth of evidence to support his explanations. While the mainstream media enjoys mocking anyone who asks questions “outside the box,” Dr. Greer is an individual who deserves your attention. His book, Unacknowledged, is also available on Amazon.com.

    I spoke with Dr. Greer about “cosmic false flags” and much more in the video below. As you’ll hear toward the end of the video, I also offered to volunteer my laboratory testing services for any exotic materials or unknown substances he might encounter.

  • Ex-Pentagon Advisor Reveals How CIA Killed Western Politicians During Cold War
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    German investigative journalist Patrik Baab and former Pentagon adviser Robert Harkavy have released a bombshell book, revealing the links between the murders of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, West German politician Uwe Barschel and former CIA director William Colby. Baab told Sputnik what their groundbreaking research has uncovered.

    Baab and Harkavy’s book, ‘In the Spider Web of the Secret Services: Why Were Olaf Palme, Uwe Barschel and William Colby Murdered?’, takes aim at the CIA’s suspected involvement in the officials’ deaths. Based on secret documents from seven different intelligence agencies, conversations with former agents, toxicology reports, and consultations with experts, the book seeks answers to long-standing questions about who was responsible for what have become among the most high profile political death and suspected suicide cases of the 20th century.

    Speaking to Sputnik Deutschland, Baab, a renowned television journalist in his native Germany, said that there was a common thread tying all three of the officials’ deaths together.

    “Uwe Barschel, Olof Palme and William Colby had something in common,” Baab explained. “All three were involved in one way or another in international arms trade in the context of the Iran-Contra scandal, and connected in some way with the CIA and NATO’s ‘Stay Behind’ secret army network.” The Stay Behind network, designed to carry out resistance, assassination and provocation operations during the Cold War, would have been activated in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, or if far left parties ever came to power in democratic elections.

    Barschel: From CIA Contacts to Mysterious Death
    Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician Uwe Barschel served as the head of the West German region of Schlewswig-Holstein from 1982 and 1987. On October 11, 1987, the politician was found dead in his hotel room in Geneva, Switzerland. The official version of his death said that he had committed suicide. Months earlier, in May 1987, Barschel had narrowly survived a plane crash. Theories have been floated over the decades saying that the politician was killed by Mossad.

Trump Implies Cryptic ‘Calm Before Storm’ Remark was about North Korea

  • Trump Implies Cryptic ‘Calm Before Storm’ Remark was about North Korea
    by https://www.rt.com/
    One mystery has been solved as Donald Trump implied that his “calm before storm” remark was indeed about North Korea. “We can’t let this go on” with Pyongyang, he said when asked to clarify his phrase which sparked speculation in the media.

    In a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday, the first question that Trump was asked was whether he was thinking of North Korea when he made his enigmatic comment earlier in October. “It seems related to ‘Rocket Man’ Kim Jong-un… in terms of them [North Korea] having nuclear capability,” Hannity said. 

    Trump essentially confirmed that he was making the remark about Kim. However, he didn’t specify the message. “We can’t let this go on. We just can’t,” Trump said, responding to Hannity’s question.

    Trump made the mysterious comment last week following his meeting with senior US military officials at the White House. When reporters arrived, the president said“This is the calm before the storm.”

    “What’s the storm? On Iran? On ISIS? On what?”
     one of the reporters asked. “We have the world’s great military people,” Trump replied. “Thank you all for coming.” When asked by an NBC News reporter one more time what “storm” he had referred to, Trump said “You’ll find out.”

    Trump blamed his predecessors for failing to curb North Korean nuclear development. “It [the crisis] should have been handled 25 years ago, it should have been handled 20 years ago and 10 years ago, 5 years ago. It should have been handled by numerous [presidents]. Not just [ex-US President Barack] Obama,” Trump exclaimed,” But certainly President Obama should have taken care of it.”

    – Pensions will suffer “apocalypse.”
    – Paying off debt vs. prepping for crisis
    – How much gold and silver to own
    – The petrodollar will collapse within months
