State Dept Insider: “Eerily Familiar Drumbeat Of War Intensifying” Ahead Of Pompeo’s Iran Speech

  • State Dept Insider: “Eerily Familiar Drumbeat Of War Intensifying” Ahead Of Pompeo’s Iran Speech
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Reza Marashi served in the Office of Iranian Affairs at the U.S. State Department and is currently research director at the National Iranian American Council. He is frequently consulted by Western governments on Iran-related matters. He took to Twitter on Friday to sound the alarm ahead of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s upcoming address called “Supporting Iranian Voices,” set to be held Sunday at the Reagan Library, warning as a former longtime State Department insider that this is not about “rights” or “democracy promotion” but that the wheels of the Washington regime change machine are turning.

    Authored by former State Department Iranian Affairs officer Reza Marashi,
    And now I shall go on one of my famous rants. This time about Mike Pompeo’s upcoming speech on “Supporting Iranian Voices.” This is going to be long. Find your favorite comfy chair. Put on some cozy attire – sweatpants, perhaps. Pop some popcorn. Pour yourself an adult beverage.

    To date, out of respect for my friends still fighting the good fight at the State Department, I have kept silent about this heavy, wet, overflowing diaper of everything that should not be. But I keep getting asked about it, so I will oblige once and then let the clown show carry on.

    An eerily familiar drumbeat of war is intensifying across DC, as the continues its wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Yemen.
     The ghosts of America’s neoconservative past are dusting off their Iraq playbook to make the case for war with Iran.

    Their formula is simple but effective: 
    Portray the Iranian government as an existential threat, insist that a chain of catastrophic events will result from inaction, and minimize costs and risks of the war that isnecessary to facilitate their regime change efforts.

Russiagate Is Constructed of Pure Bullshit, No Facts

  • Russiagate Is Constructed of Pure Bullshit, No Facts
    by Paul Craig Roberts, https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    All day today the presstitute scum at NPR went on and on about President Trump, using every kind of guest and issue to set him up for more criticism as an unfit occupant of the Oval Office, because, and only because, he threatens the massive budget of the military/security complex by attempting to normalize relations with Russia. The NPR scum even got an ambassador from Montenegro on the telephone and made every effort to goad the ambassador into denouncing Trump for saying that Montenegro had strong and aggressive people capable of defending themselves and were not in need of sending the sons of American families to defend them. Somehow this respectful compliment about the Monenegro people was supposed to be an insult. The ambassador refused to be put into opposition to Trump. NPR kept trying, but got nowhere.

    As a former Wall Street Journal editor I can say with complete confidence that NPR crossed every line between journalism and advocacy and no longer qualifies as a 501c3 tax-exempt public foundation.

    The NPR assault on President Trump was part of an orchestration. The same story appeared in the Washington Post, long-believed to be a CIA asset. Most likely, it has appeared throughout the presstitute media. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2018/07/19/after-being-called-aggressive-by-trump-montenegro-insists-its-a-friend-to-america/?utm_term=.b1d275cccd8e 

    The ability of the military/security complex to control the explanations given to Americans, about which President Eisenhower warned Americans in 1961 to no effect, has produced an American population, a large percentage of which is brainwashed.

    For example, in Caitlin Johnstone’s column, linked below, Kurt Eichenwald, who, in my opinion, is either a brainwashed idiot or a Deep State troll, says that the bottom line is that you either believe “our intelligence community,” which most definitely did not conclude what Eichenwald says they have concluded, “or you support Putin. You are either a patriot, a traitor or an idiot.”

MSM Disinformation Scam, Trump/Putin Meeting Fake Hysteria, Wells Fargo Troubles

  • MSM Disinformation Scam, Trump/Putin Meeting Fake Hysteria, Wells Fargo Troubles
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 344 7/20/18) 
    Putin dropped a bomb in the recent Trump/Putin meeting in Helsinki, Finland. Putin charged that an investment fund manager named Bill Browder (a British citizen) took $1.5 billion out of Russia and that he (and others) made the money illegally. On top of that, Putin charged that some U.S. Intelligence Officers helped guide “$400 million as a contribution to the campaign (2016) of Hillary Clinton.” Putin suggested Russian authorities want a deal to talk to Browder. Trump has turned down Putin, but shouldn’t the U.S. ask some questions? Don’t expect the disinformation scam that is the mainstream media (MSM) to ask the hard questions because FOX and MSNBC would only get Browder’s reaction to Trump turning down the Putin request. NOBODY would ask about the $400 million that Putin says was sent via U.S. Intel Officers to the Clinton Campaign. Not asking that question of Browder, when you have him on camera for an interview, is too stupid to be stupid.


    The Deep State and their MSM partners are going hysterical because of the meeting with Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. They are calling Trump a traitor, but they know it’s a fake and phony charge. The real reason for the hysteria is they know that the Deep State is in deep trouble, and they are trying anything they can to discredit him and cast doubt. Trump is not afraid and has announced another meeting with Putin. The Deep State wanted war between the U.S. and Russia, and it looks like peace is breaking out instead. The Deep State, MSM, Democrats and RINO’s are panicked that Russia and America are working together against the New World Order and the Deep State.

    Warren Buffett’s bank, Wells Fargo, is in trouble again for ripping off its customers. Why do they keep doing this sort of thing? Could it be the bank needs money anyway it can get it?

Trump: ‘Reckless’ Media Pushing for ‘Major Confrontation with Russia that Could Lead to War’

MSM: Weapons of Mass Deception for Wars without end !

  • Trump: ‘Reckless’ Media Pushing for ‘Major Confrontation with Russia that Could Lead to War’
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Donald Trump says that recent hysteria whipped up by the “Fake News Media” about his summit with Vladimir Putin shows that the US press is eager for a “major confrontation” with Russia, one that could even lead to war.

    “The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!”
    the US president tweeted on Thursday.


    Shortly after accusing the media of pushing for confrontation with Russia, Trump tweeted that he looked forward to meeting Putin again so that the two leaders could finalize plans for cooperation between Washington and Moscow.

    “The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media. I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more. There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems…but they can ALL be solved!”
     he wrote.

‘Russiagate’: Attack On Our Values Or Power Of War Propaganda?

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live on Jul 18, 2018
    Just when it seemed that much of the US intelligence community was on the ropes over its role in the 2016 US presidential election, lo and behold the Rosenstein indictments days before the Trump-Putin summit has much of America demanding that we never question our spy agencies. If we do, they say, we are traitors. Is this the kind of America we want to live in?

‘MSM Wants Us to Cast Russia as an Enemy & It’s Wrong’ – Ron Paul

  • ‘MSM Wants Us to Cast Russia as an Enemy & It’s Wrong’ – Ron Paul
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin is a “step in the right direction,” former US Senator Ron Paul told RT, while also addressing the “propaganda” notion that the US must have an enemy in Russia.

    “I was very pleased with what went on today,”
     Paul said. He added that if the two leaders ever had a serious discussion, “I guess it would come out on how much we’ve been involved when we shouldn’t be involved, for instance in Ukraine, and how that occurred.”

    “But if they don’t want to concentrate on those problems and they want to look forward I think that is great… I think the next best step ever would be for us to reassess this and say that Trump’s going in the right direction and talk him into getting rid of the sanctions on Russia.”

    Paul also addressed the US media, calling it a “big problem” because “they’re almost unanimously endorsing the idea that we have to have an enemy, and at this point – especially for the last 20 years – they’ve been working very hard to make Russia the enemy, and I think this is wrong.”

    When asked by RT why the US media already seems angry about the meeting between the two presidents, he said: “It’s hard to say, but we usually describe that there is a secret government that likes to control things and most people know what we talk about when we talk about the ‘deep state.’ And they do have a lot of clout, they are very much involved in the media and the leadership of both parties, so both parties and the media are very, very, annoyed with Trump [being so] independent.”

    Paul also addressed the recent indictment of 12 Russian individuals by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, saying there is “an argument why Russia is an enemy and we have to quit talking to them and I think it’s just a propaganda stunt and I think those indictments were more about propaganda than seeking justice.”

    The retired Libertarian senator’s comments came just after Trump and Putin met in Helsinki, holding a joint press conference in which they once again reiterated that no meddling or collusion had taken place during the 2016 presidential election.
  • Illuminist (Satanists) social engineers foment wars without end with their control of the MSM. They rule the world via subtlety and deception:

    Revelation 12:9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
    Revelation 13:14 And he deceives those[e] who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, ….
    Revelation 19:20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
    Revelation 20:3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. ….
    Revelation 20:7-8 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog …
    Revelation 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where[b] the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

The Vlad and Donald Show – A Glorious Blow for Peace!

  • The Vlad and Donald Show – A Glorious Blow for Peace!
    by , https://original.antiwar.com/
    The Vlad and Donald show in Helsinki Monday was simply brilliant and breathtaking – we’d say even a beautiful thing to behold.

    Between them, they left CNN’s nattering nabobs of neocon nonsense sounding like the shrieking monkeys they actually are. And that’s to say nothing of the fools they made out of the newly minted liberal and progressive warmongers on the Dem side of the aisle in Washington or the so-called journalists who fill 90% of the space in the so-called mainstream media with endless pro-war propaganda.

    But most of all it was the single greatest blow to the War Party since it turned Imperial Washington into a colossal menace bent on global hegemony when the Soviet Union slithered off the pages of history in 1991.

    We have said all along that Putin and Russia have been demonized because the Warfare State desperately needs an “enemy” to justify its $800 billion annual mugging of America’s taxpayers. Yet today’s spontaneous chorus by the two leaders in behalf of détente, dialogue and diplomacy puts the kibosh on that Big Lie more completely than could 100 Ted Talks or a year’s worth of pro-peace op eds in the Washington Post.

    So Flyover America will have no trouble seeing the good of the Helsinki Summit. Trump and Putin just killed it on every topic where the War Party and its shills in the press wanted to drive a wedge.

    That is to say, cooperation on Syria, arms control, terrorism, North Korea, Ukraine; friendly competition on supplying natural gas to Europe; an invitation to Mueller to send his legal sleuths to Russia to participate in the interrogation of the 12 GRU ham sandwiches named in the indictment; and best of all, a reciprocal notion that Russian prosecutors come here to question Deep State operatives about how they helped one of the greatest scoundrels of modern times, Bill Browder, abscond from Russia with almost $1.5 billion skimmed from its people and on which he and his posse paid zero taxes either there or here.

    Indeed, the debunking of the false mainstream narrative about Russia’s nefarious intentions and doings was so complete that the Deep State apparatchiks were reduced to sputtering hysterically. For instance, here is the bile issued by the central architect of the Russian collusion lie, former CIA director John Brennan:

    Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

    Then again, when you actually read the transcript of the joint press conference, you will find the very words, phrases and tonalities that harken back to the courageous efforts of liberal democrats like Senators George McGovern and Frank Church and even President Jimmy Carter to promote diplomacy and détente during the height of the Cold War confrontation when each side had 9,000 nuclear warheads on hair-trigger alert.

CNN Analyst Philip Mudd(Ex CIA): When Will ‘Shadow Government’ Rise Against Trump?

  • CNN Analyst Philip Mudd: When Will ‘Shadow Government’ Rise Against Trump?
    by Joshua Caplan, https://www.breitbart.com/
    CNN analyst and former CIA intelligence official Philip Mudd wondered aloud Monday when a shadow government will emerge to oppose President Donald Trump following a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

    A partial transcript follows:
    COOPER: Senator McCain is saying [the joint Trump-Putin press conference] was the most disgraceful display essentially by an American president on the world stage. Phil do you agree with that?

    MUDD: I do, but you have to step back even a short time after this and say, what next? You’ve seen senators come out. In the past, you’ve seen a senator in the midst of a painful illness, Senator McCain, Senators like Jeff Flake who are leaving the Senate. Now you see Marco Rubio still obviously in the fight speaking out.

    My question would be: when do members of the president’s inner circle say “look, we have an overseas dilemma where you are portraying us, in terms of the American government, as worse than a tyrant — that is, Vladimir Putin.”

    Secretary of Homeland Security came out with statements this week about continued Russian interference. This was not on Obama’s watch. That’s this week. FBI director continues the investigation. Department of Justice continues support for the investigation. Congress continues saying this investigation’s legitimate.

    Curious point in American government: when do we see almost a shadow government come out and say “we cannot side with the government,” whether it’s the Cabinet or the Senate.

Lost in Translation: CNN Claims Putin Admitted to Election-Meddling. He Did Not.

  • Lost in Translation: CNN Claims Putin Admitted to Election-Meddling. He Did Not.
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The US mainstream media’s chorus condemnation of US President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki has gone so far that CNN claimed Putin had confessed to meddling in US elections.

    CNN Newsroom anchor Poppy Harlow made the claim on Tuesday while interviewing Marc Lotter, former press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence. Harlow played the clip of the Russian president responding to a question by Reuters reporter Jeff Mason at Monday’s press conference about wanting Trump to win the 2016 presidential election.

    “Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”
     Mason asked.


    Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal,”was Putin’s response, as provided by the translator.

    Harlow took the repetition to mean agreement on both questions, and she insisted on replaying the clip after Lotter said he wasn’t sure, and that Putin might have been answering just the first part. While the translator most certainly said that, Putin did not. His full answer, accurately translated from Russian, was, “Yes, I wanted him to win, because he talked about the need to normalize US-Russia relations.”

    The Russian president notably did not address Mason’s second question at all. US reporters could have nitpicked that non-answer and used their favorite “he did not deny it” argument – just as they had with Putin’s dismissal of claims that Russia had “dirt” on Trump. Harlow, however, went a step further and argued that Putin actually agreed with Mason and admitted he ordered Russian officials to help Trump win.

    Yet just a few minutes earlier, Putin had explained that the Russian public began to have sympathies towards candidate Trump because he spoke of the need to restore US-Russia relations.

    “Isn’t it natural to have sympathy towards a man who wants to restore relations with your country? That’s normal,”
     the Russian president said.


    Harlow and CNN weren’t the only ones to misinterpret Putin’s answer. There was also Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Russia – as well as many #Resistance activists, eager for proof of Trump’s “collusion” with Moscow in order to explain the 2016 defeat of Hillary Clinton.

Israel Must Admit the Truth: Burning Kites Don’t Justify War

Palestinian protesters flying a kite during a protest at the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel. Khalil Hamra/AP

  • Using incendiary kites/balloons to attack Israel is Bullshit war propaganda. Is it even workable? If the Palestinians really are launching hundreds of rockets at Israel why would they attack Israel using unworkable flaming kites/balloons? Why not just use their rockets? It is all Zionist BULLSHIT war propaganda.
  • Israel Must Admit the Truth: Burning Kites Don’t Justify War
    by , https://www.haaretz.com/
    The government is dragging Israel dangerously close to an unnecessary war in Gaza, despite assertions by top security brass that the situation doesn’t warrant it.

    From the standpoint of Israeli experts, the situation in the south, as of Tuesday morning, was discouraging and worrying. The country’s political leadership has lost its cool. It is afraid to tell its citizens the truth: that the incendiary kites being sent over the border from the Gaza Strip have created a security problem for neighboring Israeli communities and constitute a threat that needs to be addressed with persistence and determination – but the fires caused by incendiary kites and balloons, which have so far not caused a scratch to a single Israeli, cannot provide grounds for going to war.

    Such sentiments are not being uttered in public, however. The political leadership is becoming captive to its own strident declarations – and without a change in its approach, we continue to edge dangerously close toward an unnecessary war with Hamas.

    whirlwind of circumstances is pushing Israel into this corner: internal tensions among Likud, Habayit Hayehudi and Yisrael Beiteinu, the three parties spearheading the coalition’s security policy; and melodramatic media coverage (on Tuesday, for example, one newspaper reported about a falcon found on the Israeli side of the border, with an incendiary device attached to it – and this is in a country where people still remember when there were suicide bombings on buses), and public pressure is growing.

    There doesn’t seem to be even one person among the top security brass who believes that the incendiary kites and other devices justify going to war. Aside from their desire to be reelected, it’s reasonable to assume that this would also be the stance of most of the members of the cabinet. But politicians read the opinion polls that indicate that there is major frustration over the continuing blazes on the Israeli side of the Gaza border, and they feel as if the ground is shaking under their feet.

    Moreover, as in the two most recent rounds of fighting in the Strip – Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012 and Operation Protective Edge in 2014 – this time too there is the whiff of a possible election in air.
