Russian Fighter Jet Flies Within 50 Feet Of US Spy Plane Over Russian Naval Base:

Tensions continue to escalate between the US and Russia. As a reminder, Russia conducted several close encounter fly-bys when first a Russian Su-24 “buzzed” the US missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea, and just days later flew within 50 feet of a US recon plane also flying over the Baltic Sea. The U.S. quickly responded and complained vocally to Russia, followed quickly by the first deployment of US F-22 stealth fighter to Romania, in close proximity to both the Black Sea and 400 km from the Russian military stronghold of Sevastopol on the Crimean Peninsula.

It now appears there was a third incident involving an extremely close encounter. According to the Free Beacon, a Russian MiG-31 jet flew within 50 feet of a U.S. surveillance aircraft in Northeast Asia last week, in what was dubbed “Moscow’s latest aerial saber-rattling” against American ships and planes by US defense officials.

This Is The End: Venezuela Runs Out Of Money To Print New Money:

Back in February, when we commented on the unprecedented hyperinflation about the be unleashed in the Latin American country whose president just announced that he would expand the “weekend” for public workers to 5 days

venezuela inflation_0

… we joked that it is unclear just where the country will find all the paper banknotes it needs for all its new physical currency. After all, central-bank data shows Venezuela more than doubled the supply of 100-, 50- and 2-bolivar notes in 2015 as it doubled monetary liquidity including bank deposits. Supply has grown even as Venezuela has fewer U.S. dollars to support new bolivars, a result of falling oil prices.  Continue reading »

“It’s Hard To Believe” – Establishment Stunned As Trump Gains ‘Wealthy, Well-Educated’ Voters:

Not only is Donald Trump likely to gather the most votes of any GOP Presidential nominee ever, having swept the East Coast and crushed the anti-Trump alliance between Kasich and Cruz even before it made the news cycle; but now, as Reuters reports, the GOP establishment faces an ever bigger problem. Wealthy, well-educated voters helped carry the Republican front-runner to victory this week – a demographic the famously blunt-spoken billionaire had struggled to attract in the past.

As we noted previously, with a number of states remaining including California, Trump is set to surpass current record holder George W. Bush, who received 10.8 million votes in 2000.

Obama Admits Couldn’t “Convince Americans Of Recovery”, Bashes ‘The Big Short’:

Despite his proclamation that he “saved the world from a Great Depression,” the fact is that Obama will be the first President ever to not see a single year of 3% GDP growth – but only cynical fiction-peddlers would mention facts at a time like this. In yet more legacy-defending narrative, Obama told The NYTimes today that his biggest failure was being unable to sell his success in putting the American economy back on track to the American people (no matter the actual realities) careful to blame Republicans for slowing growth “by a percentage point or two.” And then in a final affront to fact, Obama dismisses the conclusion of “The Big Short” proclaiming that he reined in Wall Street, overhauled the banking system, and made water from wine “the financial system substantially more stable.”

With regard his presidential legacy, Obama recently said he was proud of the healthcare reforms, and added that: Continue reading »

John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz “A Miserable Son Of A Bitch, Lucifer In The Flesh”:

Is the establishment’s fervent hatred of Donald Trump starting a U-turn? It’s still too early to know, however at least one core Republican, former house speaker John Boehner, has made it very clear he is not a fan of Ted Cruz. At all. So much so that according to NBC the former Republican House Speaker told an audience at Stanford University Wednesday that the Texas senator is “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.Continue reading »

Congress Fixes “Sexist” Draft – Votes To Require Women To Register For Selection:

With all the problems facing America – both at home and abroad – The House Armed Services Committee decided on Wednesday to solve one of the nation’s crucial “problems” – a “sexist draft.”

As Military.com reports on Wednesday the committee approved (by a narrow margin) an amendment to a defense bill to require women to register for the draft.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, proposed the amendment to lift the restriction on women registering for the selective service at a committee-wide mark-up session of the proposed fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Continue reading »

All candidates are “full establishment” …

… and Hillary is the worst of them all.

You have no choice. None.


Bernie-Drone-kill-list

Did Bernie Sanders Just Go Full Establishment?:

Comments made by Bernie Sanders this week may just have blindsided and disillusioned swathes of his support base.

Some of those with higher expectations of the ‘peacenik’ candidate breathed a collective sigh of disappointment after he endorsed Obama’s extrajudicial drone assassination program.

At the same time, the Democratic candidate backed the recent deployment of 250 U.S. troops to further death and destruction in Syria. During the town hall meeting at Philadelphia’s National Constitution centre, he told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that the people of the United States have a right to defend themselves. The warmongering endorsement, which could have easily slid under the radar, was slotted into a much wider discussion that included vote-winners like Planned Parenthood, violence against women, marijuana, and gun control.

Anything Trumps Hillary:

It’s all over except the shouting. That is, the primary election season effectively ended last night and now the actual shouting match between Hillary and The Donald begins.

This will surely be the most entertaining election in US history, and probably the most pointless, too. After all, Hillary wants to use government to make Government Great Again. And Trump promises to use government to make America Great Again.

But government doesn’t make anything great, including itself. It is a necessary evil that always and everywhere is driven toward self-aggrandizement and mission creep by the politicians and special interest lobbies which control its operations. Continue reading »

Greek Default Looms In July After EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit:

More Greece “Uncertainty”: Default Looms in July, EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit

Those who thought the situation in Greece was solved after prime minister Alexis Tsipras suddenly caved in to creditors’ demands need think again.

Greek tax revenues are running well under expectations. A default looms in July unless the creditors give more money to Greece so that Greece can pay back the creditors. As convoluted as that sounds, that’s precisely the way this madness works. Continue reading »

China successfully tests nuclear-capable hypersonic missile – Pentagon sources:

The DF-ZF hypersonic glide vehicle was launch on Friday by a ballistic missile fired from the Wuzhai site in central China, unnamed US military officials told the Washington Free Beacon website. Continue reading »

Russia’s Top TV Host Kiselyov Ridicules Merkel and Erdogan on Weekly Show (Video):

And gives a big plug to one of Germany’s leading alternative publications

Lately, Frau Merkel is everyone’s favorite punching bag.   For Russian state media, she is a staple of almost daily abuse.

The woman is roundly hated throughout Russia for her mind-boggling moral and financial support of the government in Kiev which waged, and continues to wage a vicious military campaign against civilians in Eastern Ukraine, with her very vocal, even giddy, encouragement.

German military estimate the casualties on both sides exceed 70,000 troops and civilians, with three times that number wounded, and let’s not forget the 1 million refugees, and the 4-5 million shoved in to wrenching poverty in the war zone.

Did we mention she was a strong favorite for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Well at least TIME magazine, a neocon cesspool, was sufficiently impressed.  They made her “Man” of the year, cause, they think she is a real hero.  Seriously, here is part of their explanation: Continue reading »

From the article:

“We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

How come?

Here are some Jean-Claude Juncker quotes:

“When it becomes serious, you have to lie.”

“We decide on something, leave it lying around and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don’t understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back.”

“If it’s a Yes, we will say ‘on we go’, and if it’s a No we will say ‘we continue’.”

“There can be no democratic choice against the European treaties.”

“Monetary policy is a serious issue. We should discuss this in secret, in the Eurogroup […] I’m ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious […] I am for secret, dark debates.”


EU in trouble as Eurosceptic parties gain in strength:

VIENNA (AP) — Even before a vehemently anti-EU party won strong support in Austria, the European Union’s top official acknowledged that the 28-nation bloc was in trouble. “We are facing very tough times,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told parliamentarians this month. “We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

Those comments were reinforced just days later with the victory Sunday of an anti-EU right-wing party in the first round of Austria’s presidential election. Such parties are growing in strength and putting European unity under siege. Instead of moving closer toward the founding nations’ ultimate goal of “an ever-closer union,” the EU faces disconnect and drift as populists blame it for much of the continent’s ills.

Description:

Several refugees were injured after riots broke out at Moria refugee centre on Lesbos island, Tuesday, with refugees setting rubbish cans on fire and throwing stones at police, who in turn responded with tear gas. Reports from inside the centre state that the violence was sparked by authorities striking a minor.

The unrest started in a section of the camp where mostly minors are kept before spreading across the entire space. Columns of black smoke could be seen rising from the camp, prompting a deployment of the fire brigade.

Germany confirms departure of spy agency chief:

The German government confirmed on Wednesday that Gerhard Schindler, the head of the BND foreign intelligence agency, would leave his post two years early but provided no reason for the surprise change.

In a short statement, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff Peter Altmaier said Schindler, who has run the BND since 2012 and is not due to retire until 2018, would be replaced on July 1 by Bruno Kahl, an official in the finance ministry responsible for privatizations and government real estate.

“The BND faces major challenges over the coming years, encompassing all aspects of its work,” Altmaier said. Continue reading »

Ted Cruz to Name Carly Fiorina as His Running Mate

And she did a “great” job at HP …

Yale professor on Carly Fiorina’s business record: She ‘destroyed half the wealth of her investors yet still earned almost $100 million’:

But Fiorina better be careful because her biggest business achievement, CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is widely regarded as a disaster.

She has been frequently called out as one of the “worst” CEOs.

In an article about worst CEOs in USA Today in 2005, Yale business Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld said that Fiorina was “the worst because of her ruthless attack on the essence of this great company. … She destroyed half the wealth of her investors and yet still earned almost $100 million in total payments for this destructive reign of terror.”

An excellent choice!

CIA-Backed Artificial Intelligence Firm To Spy on Wall Street Traders:

Swiss multinational bank, Credit Suisse, will collaborate with data analysis firm, Palantir, to launch a trader surveillance program. According to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Voegeli, the joint venture, called Signac, aims to catch rogue Wall Streeters engaged in illegal trading. It comes in the wake of a number of trading scandals in recent years that have cost banks billions of dollars.

Palantir was co-founded by Peter Thiel and seed-funded by the CIA. The company was funded in part by In-Q-Tel Inc., the venture capital investment arm of the CIA that has a long, symbiotic history with startups, the NSA, the FBI, and DARPA. In fact, In-Q-Tel specifically funds tech start-ups “to advance ‘priority’ technologies of value” in the intelligence community. The group has ties to Donald Rumsfeld’s Total Information Awareness initiative and is believed by some to have worked closely with Google in its earliest years. Continue reading »

Saudis and the Dying Petrodollar: “The Global Economic Reset Has Begun”:

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at his Alt-Market website.

Editor’s Comment: As Brandon Smith makes eloquent in this article, a global showdown is looming, and the long-standing alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia is likely to be broken, as self-interest drives new alliances in the era of global SDR currencies, and the end of the dollar’s special status on the world market. 

Oil prices have been deliberately skewed to a level that would disrupt entire nations, and test markets while a flood of resources is pulling out the safety net and things grind to a halt. As these events unfold in the near future, much of the ample corrupt between the Saudis and the secret government wing of the U.S. government is likely to surface… and there is much evil and misdeeds to draw from.

One More Casualty Of The 9/11 Farce – The Petrodollar

It’s been about 15 years now since passenger airliners struck the World Trade Center towers on 9/11, and we are still suffering the consequences of that day, though perhaps not in the ways many Americans might believe. Continue reading »

Sweden On High Alert After Reports ISIS Militants Enter Country To “Target Civilians”:

In the last week of March, immediately in the aftermath of the tragic Brussels bombing which ISIS took responsibility for and which was subsequently revealed as organized by a semi-autonomous Brussels cell operating closely with the French cell responsible for the November 2015 terrorist attack, we reported that the Islamic State group has trained at least 400 attackers and sent them into Europe for terror attacks. As AP said, citing security officials, “the network of interlocking, agile and semi-autonomous cells shows the reach of the extremist group in Europe even as it loses ground in Syria.”

The last sentence was most troubling: “The officials say the fighters have been given orders to find the right time, place and method to carry out their mission.” Continue reading »

Israeli general warns of ‘devastating war’ with Hezbollah:

JERUSALEM — A top Israeli military leader on Wednesday issued a stern warning to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, saying any future war between the two enemies will unleash “devastating” damage on Lebanon.

Maj. Gen. Yair Golan, Israel’s deputy chief of staff, told foreign journalists that Hezbollah has developed capabilities that present “unprecedented” threats to Israel. Israel estimates the group has over 100,000 rockets and missiles in its arsenal.

Golan said any future war will be “much harsher” than anything experienced in the past 20 years.

“In any future crisis, they are not going to see a small war in Lebanon. It’s going to be decisive. It’s going to be full-scale war,” he said.

US Empire Goes Berserk: Unleashes Legal Jackals On All Perceived Enemies For Financial Expropriation:

Economic Subversion and Financial Terrorism, Monetary Collapse and Corporate Sabotage are the Main Tools by which the Anglo-American Empire Maintains Its Ascendancy

SOTN Editor’s Note:

This is how the United States of America continues to run its tyranny around the world. Because the U.S. Armed Forces are now spread so thin as the global Anglo-American Empire starts to collapse, the USA has no alternative but to wage financial and legal wars against all of its perceived enemies.   Those fabricated enemies all have one thing in common—money and resources. It is the same criminal NWO cabal that controls the U.S. Federal Government which has relentlessly targeted these resource-rich and currency-wealthy adversaries. Continue reading »
