West Point Professor Calls For Military Strikes On Journalists Critical Of War On Terror (Anti Media, Sept , 2015):

An assistant professor from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point recently declared that professionals critical of the “War on Terror” constitute a “treasonous” opposition that should be subject to military force.

He believes the U.S. should have the right to attack people who are critical of U.S. military operations — specifically, professionals, legal scholars, journalists, and other people effectively spreading ideas that oppose war.

Professor William C. Bradford went as far as to publish a long academic paper in the National Security Law Journal that aggressively promotes suppressing dissent about military force, civilian casualties, and expanding military operations in the Middle East.

Using the excuse that victims would be “lawful targets,” Bradford argues that “law school facilities, scholars’ home offices and media outlets where they give interviews” should be targeted with military force to suppress dissent. He asserted that the war on terror should be expanded, “even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage.” Continue reading »

In Dramatic Escalation, China Sends Five Navy Ships Off Alaska Coast For First Time Ever

Just as China celebrates the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II with an extravagant parade designed to showcase the country’s military prowess and project Xi Jinping’s power to nervous onlookers in the West, the Pentagon says it has spotted five Chinese Navy ships in the Bering Sea, just off the coast of Alaska.

Here’s WSJ:

Five Chinese navy ships are currently operating in the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska, the first time the U.S. military has seen such activity in the area, Pentagon officials said Wednesday. Continue reading »

‘No Russian jets sent to Syria’ – military source on ‘expeditionary force’ report (RT, Sept 1, 2015):

No Russian jets were deployed to Syria in order to launch attacks against Islamic State militants (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) and Syrian rebels, a military source told RT, dismissing reports in Israeli media.

“There has been no redeployment of Russian combat aircraft to the Syrian Arab Republic,” the source told RT on Tuesday. “The Russian Air Force is at its permanent bases and carrying out normal troop training and combat duty.”

On Monday, the Israeli news site Ynet News cited Western diplomats as saying that a Russian “expeditionary force” has arrived in Syria to set up camp at a government airbase near Damascus in order to lead an offensive against IS militants and rebel-aligned targets. Continue reading »

Russian jets in Syrian skies (YNET, Aug 31, 2015):

Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.

According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base. Continue reading »

Anti-American Sentiment Runs High in Russia After Retired U.S. General Suggested Start Killing Russians

Anti-American Sentiment Runs High in Russia After Retired U.S. General Suggested “Start Killing Russians”… (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 25, 2015):

“The only way the United States can have any effect in this region and turn the tide,” Mr. Scales said, “is to start killing Russians … killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to the motherland in body bags. But, given the [small] amount of support we’ve given to the Ukrainians, given the ability of the Ukrainians themselves to counter-attack against these, what? 12,000 Russians camped in their country…sadly that’s not likely to happen.”– Retired U.S. Major General Robert H. Scales

Earlier this year, I outlined my take on modern American foreign policy in the post, The Forgotten War – Understanding the Incredible Debacle Left Behind by NATO in Libya. This was my conclusion:

There are only two logical conclusions that can be reached about American foreign policy leadership in the 21st century.

1) American leadership is ruthlessly pursuing immoral wars all over the world with the intent of creating outside enemies to focus public anger on, as a conscious diversion away from the criminality happening domestically. As an added bonus, the intelligence-military-industrial complex makes an incredible sum of money. The end result: serfs are distracted with inane nationalistic fervor, while the “elites” earn billions.

2) American leadership is completely and totally inept; being easily manipulated into overseas conflicts by ruthless corporate interests and cunning foreign “rebels” in order to advance their own selfish interests, which are in conflict with the interests of the general public.

I can’t come up with any other logical conclusion. Either way, such people have no business running the affairs of these United States, and their actions are merely increasing instability and violence across the planet. The longer they remain in charge with no accountability, the more dangerous this world will become.

Just a month later, retired U.S. Major General Robert H. Scales was interviewed on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs, and he suggested killing so many Russians that Putin would lose his power base back home. I really wish I was making it up, but watch it here for yourself:

The good news is that this man is retired. The crazy thing is that a man so obviously demented, dangerous and unstable rose to such a position in the U.S. military in the first place.

I’d also like to know who’s paying his bills these days. Perhaps then we can understand why he’s trying so hard to start World War III.

The New York Observer referenced this video earlier today when discussing how anti-Americanism is on the rise in Russia. We learn that:

Since the beginning of the year, Putin’s propaganda industry, feeling the economic crisis, has had to tighten its belt. The Russian Information Agency TASS announced a 25 percent staff reduction and 20 percent salary cut for its employees. Rossiyskaya Gazeta, which holds the monopoly on the official publications of new laws and government decrees, fired 10% of its staff. Similar examples are innumerable, as Bloomberg reported in January.

Despite all the economizing, the level of anti-Americanism in Russia has reached its all-time high, fluctuating from 70 percent to 73 percent of negative and strongly negative feelings towards the US this year, according to the respected polling institution Levada-Center.

The possible explanation—somebody else is doing all the heavy-lifting for the Kremlin propaganda machine, helping it to save millions and outsource the humongous task of proving to the Russians that the West started the final, doomed-from-the-start crusade against Mother Russia.

One of the big helpers has been the Fox News channel and a handful of its analysts. (Yes, one can watch Fox News in Russia, as well as CNN, EuroNews and unlimited number of other TV channels the world knows).

This year, Fox News analyst retired US Major General Robert H. Scales saved a lot of money for the Kremlin propaganda machine. And now he’s saving even more.

Back in March, Maj. Gen. Scales infuriated the Russian public with his solution on how to help Ukraine regain control over the territories that have fallen into the arms of pro-Russia insurgents. “The only way the United States can have any effect in this region and turn the tide,” Mr. Scales said, “is to start killing Russians … killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to the motherland in body bags. But, given the [small] amount of support we’ve given to the Ukrainians, given the ability of the Ukrainians themselves to counter-attack against these, what? 12,000 Russians camped in their country … eh…sadly, it’s not gonna likely to happen”.

Since the beginning of the year, Putin’s propaganda industry, feeling the economic crisis, has had to tighten its belt. The Russian Information Agency TASS announced a 25 percent staff reduction and 20 percent salary cut for its employees. Rossiyskaya Gazeta, which holds the monopoly on the official publications of new laws and government decrees, fired 10% of its staff.

One of the big helpers has been the Fox News channel and a handful of its analysts. (Yes, one can watch Fox News in Russia, as well as CNN, EuroNews and unlimited number of other TV channels the world knows).

According to Mr. Scales, the attack on him by the Russians was an attack on the First Amendment in the US and an attempt to intimidate the free press. Despite all the bravado, he abruptly canceled plans a cruise to the Baltics, being careful about the long arms of Russian Femida.

While retired US army general’s story was unfolding in Russia, the US State Department announced the renewal of its crusade against what it called “Russian propaganda,” heralding the increase in spending on the program, including a $500,000 grant to train journalists to fight “Moscow lies” in the Baltic states alone. If the point is to counter Russian rhetoric, the State Department might do better to spend its half million keeping General Scales away from microphones and keyboards.

And it’s not just a one-sided thing either. Earlier this year, the Washington Times noted:

The feeling is mutual. A Gallup poll this year found negative American sentiment toward Russia at a post-Cold War high, with 70 percent unfavorable and 24 percent favorable.

So who’s trying to start WW3 and why? Let’s not forget this gem:

The Russian army is beginning to engage in Syria (ZeroHedge, Aug 24, 2015):

A profound and significant change has just occurred in the Levant – the Russian army has begun to engage against terrorism in Syria. Although Russia has been absent from the international scene since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and although it is moving with care, it has just created a Russo-Syrian Commission, has begun supplying weapons, sharing intelligence, and sending advisors. All of this is more or less coordinated with the White House.

Tatarstan, General Valéri Guérassimov, head of the armed forces of the Federation of Russia and deputy vice-Minister of Defence
Originally from Tatarstan, General Valéri Guérassimov, head of the armed forces of the Federation of Russia and deputy vice-Minister of Defence, is very familiar with Islam. Besides this, he cracked down on crimes committed by Russian soldiers in Chechnya, and victoriously fought the jihadists of the Islamic Emirate in Itchkeria.

After having negotiated a regional alliance against the Islamic Emirate which implied Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey, Russia suddenly had to abandon its strategy after the Turkish turn-around. Ankara has in fact decided to break off its ties with Moscow, and has cancelled, without genuine motive, the contract for the gas pipe-line Turkish Stream, created, in partenership with Ukraine, an international Islamic Brigade intended to destabilise Crimea [1]. It has also come to the help of the Islamic Emirate in their fight against the Kurds of the PKK and the YPG. Continue reading »

Two Years Ago: How the Syrian Chemical Weapons Videos Were Staged (Global Rearch, Aug 21, 2015):

Detailed Video Analysis on GRTV

By James Corbett, Mother Agnes Mariam, and Prof Michel Chossudovsky

August 21, 2013: Obama’s insidious and criminal objective in August 2013 was to use these attacks with a view to justifying a humanitarian war against Syria.

This GRTV report was first broadcast in September 2013 in the month following the East Ghouta Chemical Attacks

In the wake of the Syrian chemical weapons attack, shocking footage of the victims of that attack were widely circulated in an effort to raise the ire of the public and spur support for military intervention.

Now, a new report on that footage finds troubling inconsistencies and manipulation with the video that calls the official narrative of the attack and its victims into question. Continue reading »

For now, the team say they are focusing on using the brain for military research, to understand the effect of post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.


First almost fully-formed human brain grown in lab, researchers claim (Guardian, Aug 18, 2015):

Research team say tiny brain could be used to test drugs and study diseases, but scientific peers urge caution as data on breakthrough kept under wraps

An almost fully-formed human brain has been grown in a lab for the first time, claim scientists from Ohio State University. The team behind the feat hope the brain could transform our understanding of neurological disease.

Though not conscious the miniature brain, which resembles that of a five-week-old foetus, could potentially be useful for scientists who want to study the progression of developmental diseases. It could also be used to test drugs for conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, since the regions they affect are in place during an early stage of brain development. Continue reading »

Venezuela Announces Martial Law In Border State, Dispatches 1500 Soldiers (ZeroHedge, Aug 22, 2015):

When it comes to the complete economic and social devastation of Venezuela, lately the only thing readers seem attuned to is when will the social implosion lead to renewed political tensions which will likely result in another violent political overthrow, one which may or may not involve the local military. Today Venezuela took a step in that direction when its president Maduro declared a state of emergency in a border region near Colombia following an attack by smugglers in which three soldiers and a civilian were injured, resulting in 60 days of martial law in five municipalities of the state of Tachira. He also said the closure of the border, announced on Thursday, will be extended until further notice.

Who Would Win A War In The South China Sea: The Pentagon Infographic (ZeroHedge, Aug 22, 2015):

Back in May we highlighted an infographic showing how China stacks up, from the perspective of maritime military might, to its neighbors and to the US.

The context (of course), is the ongoing dispute over China’s land reclamation project in the South China Sea where Beijing has constructed, at last count, some 3,000 acres of sovereign territory atop reefs in the Spratlys.

As we detailed on Friday, the US and its regional allies say it’s an illegitimate attempt to redraw maritime boundaries and project military supremacy while China claims it’s simply doing what other countries in the region have been doing for years. Should the situation escalate from a war of words to a war of bullets and missiles, here’s a reminder – from the Pentagon’s new Asia Pacific Maritime Security Strategy report – of how the potential combatants match up.

James A. Garfield, 20th U.S. president, said this two weeks before he was assassinated in 1881:

“Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce, and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”

This is the fact we can’t get straight: one side — one entity, one organization — funds BOTH sides in all the wars.

[The United States and Israel created ISIS, armed it with weapons and funded it with millions, then sent American troops to pretend to fight it, all for the secret purpose of sabotaging Syria. America also spent billions waging war in Afghanistan, yet funded the Taliban it pretended to fight in order to preserve poppy production that enabled the CIA to sell heroin on the streets of America.] <http://www.globalresearch.ca/grisly-peshawar-slaughter-who-created-taliban-who-still-funds-them/5420182>]

[The so-called Russian revolution was no revolution at all. The Bolshevik revolution was an invasion of foreign Jews, funded by Jewish bankers in New York, principally Jacob Schiff.

Destroy-America-Burning-Flag

Tianjin, China, cyber attacks and ‘computationally amplified warfare’ – Health Ranger warns of China’s plan to destroy America from 7000 miles away (Natural News, Aug 20, 2015):

As a follow-up to our exclusive Natural News story on the Tianjin explosion in China — which also covered military helicopters in Beijing and “kinetic retaliation” by the Pentagon using exotic space weapons — I’m offering additional analysis of the global war that’s already under way (and where it’s headed).

There are two things to disclose up front. First, make no mistake: I am pro America in all this. China is an evil, communist regime that enslaves its people and commits heinous crimes against humanity (such as the organ harvesting of political prisoners). Although I am extremely critical of the corrupt Obama regime currently in power in Washington, I am 100% pro-America and pro-freedom (and especially pro-Texas). I offer this information in the hope that America can defend itself against the crippling attacks that will soon be unleashed by China.

Secondly, I thought it was common knowledge that I speak conversational Mandarin Chinese and previously lived in Asia, but it seems a lot of people weren’t aware of that. I can only speak and listen to Mandarin, I cannot read it, so I rely on translators to help me read Chinese documents. (Documents from mainland China are written in “simplified” Chinese, while those from Taiwan are mostly written in traditional Chinese.) For many years, I have maintained contact with dissident sources in mainland China, and while they aren’t 100% accurate, they have proven reliable over time.

Mainland China, much like Google News, censors NaturalNews.com and does not allow anyone to access this website. The Chinese government operates a massive censorship firewall which forbids the transmission of any content that’s critical of the government. (Similar to the NY Times or the Washington Post, both of which are state-run media mouthpieces for the criminal regime in Washington D.C.) As a result, Chinese dissidents risk their lives to bring you the information you’re reading here. China just recently arrested 15,000 people for so-called “internet crimes.” Such “crimes” include writing a blog that reports the truth about Chinese government corruption.

The Chinese game plan for attacking America

Based on what I’ve learned from multiple sources, the Chinese game plan for America consists of a triple-layered simultaneous surprise attack — an “electronic Pearl Harbor” — as described below. For the record, this information is gleaned from a combination of things I’ve been told, things I’ve read and the exercising of “connect the dots” logic that anticipates likely tactical moves targeting the United States.

Here’s the triple-layer assault America may soon face:

Layer #1) An attack on the dollar and U.S. debt instruments.

Layer #2) A massive cyber warfare attack on the U.S. infrastructure.

Layer #3) An attack on U.S. military satellites to maximize the disruption of military communications, banking transactions, emergency services and other systems that depend on satellite communications.

I discuss each of these in more detail below:

#1) An attack on the dollar and U.S. debt

China is gearing up to announce its own gold-backed currency. This will be accompanied by a fire sale of U.S. debt on the global market, driving up U.S. borrowing costs across the globe, thereby accelerating America’s Ponzi-style debt demise.

The primary leverage point here is to destroy faith in the dollar (and the credit rating of the U.S. Treasury) at the same time the Yuan is declared to be backed by gold, which the Chinese government has been secretly accumulating to the tune of thousands of tons over the last 15 years or so. (Don’t believe the official numbers of reported gold holdings. They are intentionally misleading.)

The recent 1.9% devaluation of the Yuan (followed by two additional devaluations totaling over 4%) was merely a small tactical move in a much larger battle… a battle in which China is holding all the cards and most of the gold. By devaluing the Yuan, China is destroying the economic foundation of America’s manufacturing industry, creating widespread bankruptcies and unemployment across the USA (which is heavily dependent on imports from China for its mass consumerism society).

America’s primary fiscal vulnerability is that it remains a nation drowning in debt, mounting up somewhere around $18 trillion so far (with about half of that under the Obama regime alone). The Federal Reserve has indirectly resorted to printing money to pay the interest on the debt, thereby compounding the debt acceleration. (i.e. the Fed prints money to buy up the Treasury’s debt instruments.) Once China unleashes its full assault on the dollar, America will have little choice but to begin radically debasing its own currency through large-scale “quantitative easing” approaching $2 trillion per year. From here, the mathematical demise of the dollar is a simple inevitability that follows a geometric progression ending in collapse.

In essence, America has placed itself in a position of extreme financial vulnerability, and all an enemy nation has to do is achieve the slightest disruption of the entire financial house of cards, unleashing a self-reinforcing financial cascade of doom.

#2) A massive cyber warfare attack on the U.S. infrastructure

Although the existence of the Chinese cyber warfare army division of the PLA has been covered in the U.S. media, the full extent of its capabilities has never been accurately revealed.

What’s not being publicly discussed is the fact that China’s present-day hack attacks are merely probing attacks, primarily designed to identify vulnerabilities and gather information. When PLA hackers can access vulnerable information, they will take it (such as the massive database of U.S. military personnel that was recently stolen). However, China is currently holding back and intentionally not trying to showcase its full capabilities… nor does it wish to reveal the infrastructure targets it has already compromised (water facilities, nuclear power plants, city infrastructure, telecommunications, refineries, etc.) All these infrastructure hubs will be simultaneously targeted during the primary attack.

Based on what I’ve researched so far, the end game strategy of the PLA is to coordinate a massive cyber attack wave against America at the same time China announces its gold-backed currency while denouncing the dollar. The two attacks are mutually reinforcing. In other words, the effect of each one amplifies the effectiveness of the other strategy. U.S. infrastructure chaos, in other words, is more devastating when combined with a sudden collapse in the faith of the dollar itself (with all the obvious impacts across banking, commerce, Wall Street, etc.).

In military strategy language, we often hear the term “asymmetrical warfare” which usually refers to terror-style attacks achieving a seemingly disproportionate psychological or tactical impact on the target population. However, China’s cyber warfare strategy goes far beyond asymmetrical warfare. They are gearing up to unleash what can only be called computationally amplified warfare which relies simultaneously on the power of computational prowess (on the attacking side) and the rapid collapse of computational weaknesses (on the target side) to achieve speed-of-light domination over the relative field of battle (which is now the realm of interconnected computers rather than cities, roads and bridges).

Likely targets of this “computationally amplified warfare” include:

• Nuclear power plants
• Water pumping stations and treatment facilities
• Transportation and logistics companies
• Oil refineries
• Credit card processors and transactional commerce hubs
• Hospitals and clinics
• Emergency responders (fire stations, police, Sheriff’s offices)
• Government (agencies, regulators and coordinators)
• Military organizations and weapons suppliers
• Communications hubs, including satellites and point-to-point ground-based transmission networks

If you consider that cyber attacks may succeed against some percentage of these targets at the same time China is selling off U.S. debt, denouncing the dollar and disrupting financial transactions nationwide, you begin to get a sense of the total social chaos that can be unleashed through such an attack.

3) An attack on U.S. military satellites

Satellites are fragile things. Destroying them does not take much in terms of actual mass; it only takes targeting capabilities to direct small mass objects into the orbital trajectory of the satellite itself.

This is surprisingly easy to accomplish by any nation that possesses orbital launch capabilities. Communications satellites move in predictable orbits with only minor deviations. Intersecting those orbits with small pellets of tungsten moving at ridiculously high velocities is ridiculously easy for any advanced nation to achieve. Because impact energy equals mass times velocity squared, even very small pellets of mass can shred satellites upon impact. (A simple BB from a BB gun can destroy a billion-dollar satellite if their two paths intersect at sufficient relative velocity.)

Why tungsten? It’s cheap and has very high density per volume, with isotopes achieving atomic masses of 182, 184 and 186, if I’m remembering my lab tables correctly. Common lead isotopes, by comparison, have atomic masses in the range of 206 – 208.

An obvious military strategy for America’s enemies would be to destroy U.S. military and communications satellites at the same time the cyber war and currency war is launched. Cutting off satellite communications will paralyze the U.S. military, shut down banking transactions and cripple much of the nation’s transactional and media infrastructure. The aim is to cause maximum confusion and disruption at the same time that stocks are crashing, banks are bleeding and debt instruments are collapsing. From China’s point of view, it also doesn’t hurt that such an attack would likely disable the national EBT card transaction system, sending nearly 50 million Americans into mass riots across America’s major cities, demanding their government food stamp money.

In addition, China obviously hopes to destroy the Pentagon’s secret space weapons (i.e. “Rod of God” orbital weapons) which are now believed to have rained down kinetic Hell upon Tianjin as a warning against currency manipulations. While such satellites may be devastating weapons against immobile ground targets, they have no defenses against orbital projectiles themselves. All the Pentagon’s satellites, ultimately, are “sitting ducks” in orbit.

As it turns out, it is far easier to destroy satellites than it is to build them, so China’s strategy of destroying satellites is bound to out-pace America’s ability to replace them. The destruction of satellites also has the “benefit” (from China’s point of view) or polluting orbital paths with space debris, effectively creating “no fly zones” at high Earth orbit. Any object crossing into such a zone is likely to be obliterated by debris.

No occupation plan: Simply let America destroy itself

Interestingly, what’s likely missing from China’s attack plan on America is the most traditional element of a war: boots on the ground occupation of enemy territory.

By my estimation, China has no plan, nor need, to attempt to occupy the American mainland. It is sufficient, from their point of view, to remotely cripple America’s currency, economy and infrastructure. From there, it’s not difficult to realize that America will collapse into its own destruction and chaos stemming from the social chaos and economic apocalypse.

This is not to say, however, that Russia or other nations aren’t planning their own attempted occupation in conjunction with China’s economic assaults. In an actual military invasion, America’s cities will fall very quickly, as most city-dwellers are incapable of mounting anything resembling a citizens’ defense. The countryside, however, is a very different story, and the tale of “Red Dawn” depicted in Hollywood movies isn’t merely a fictional construct.

Thanks to the Second Amendment, rural Americans are armed to the teeth, and any invading force intending to occupy America’s countryside will quickly find itself mired in an untenable firefight with entrenched rural Americans sporting everything from long-range hunting rifles to semi-auto .50 caliber rifles capable of disabling vehicles over a mile away. “Don’t mess with Bubba!”

The new rules of warfare

What we’re witnessing in all this is a reflection of the “new rules of warfare.” Because today’s nations are built on fragile, delusional systems of debt and propaganda, they are easily toppled via unconventional means that don’t resemble the historical tools of conventional (kinetic) warfare.

In essence, what we’re already starting to witness is the first world war in the post-kinetic age of warfare. Now, wars are electronic, not kinetic.

Specifically, you no longer have to drop bombs on a nation to shut down its factories (as was the default in World War II). Instead, you only have to control the programs that run the factories… or disrupt the commerce that financially supports the factories. Similarly, if you can shut down the power grid that feeds the factories, they’re as good as dead.

Much of America today is running on faith (delusion), not economic reality, so China knows that bringing the nation to its knees does not require kinetic bombardment. It merely requires sufficient disruption to collapse the faith. Once false faith collapses, the collapse of everything else follows. China merely needs to create enough disruption so that the average America witnesses undeniable evidence that they’ve been lied to about the strength of the dollar, the solidity of government, the safety of bond investments and so on.

How America can defend herself against the new model of warfare

Given the new ground rules of war among nations, what can the United States do to protect herself from China’s triple threat?

The answers are precisely the opposite of what the socialist regime in power right now wants to see happen:

• DECENTRALIZE: The more centralized systems are, the more vulnerable they are to cyber attacks. Decentralized systems (of water, power, food distribution, banking, etc.) are, by definition, more redundant and less vulnerable. Note that this is the opposite of what Washington wants, which is total dictatorial control over everything. (Liberal politicians, in particular, HATE self-reliance among citizens.)

• Run the federal government on a truly balanced budget that requires NO additional debt to fund. The ever-present need to keep selling off new debt is a huge part of what makes America so vulnerable and easily compromised by foreign debtors.

• Encourage self-reliance across the population so that when things go wrong, people have at least an inkling of how to get by on their own without crying for the government to come rescue them. (Democrats are wholly opposed to anything resembling self-reliance. They prefer that all people are entirely dependent on the government to take care of them.)

• Stop the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy of currency debasement that essentially exports America’s debts to foreign nations due to the predominance of the dollar as the world’s exchange currency. The continued printing of money by the Fed is essentially siphoning money from China via the devaluation of debt (i.e. debasement of the global dollar supply). This is perceived by China as a slow, insidious theft via the central banks.

• Get serious about cyber security. Many power plants across America are still running on outmoded systems first designed decades ago. Although they’ve been upgraded, many were designed with security structures that simply cannot be “patched” into a state of high security. They need to be rebuilt from the ground up as new systems designed around high-security structural logic that wasn’t refined until recently. For example, many login passwords of older systems are limited to passwords of merely eight characters in length!

• Get tough with international diplomacy! This is where America needs a tough negotiator like Donald Trump. The pathetically weak academics currently in positions of international diplomacy are little more than political clowns pretending to be international leaders. Only someone like Trump has the backbone to negotiate with nations like China and Russia. Putin vs. Trump might be a fair fight. Putin vs. Obama is a total joke (and Putin knows it).

• Boost the intelligence of the intelligence agencies. I don’t know how many times I’ve written about the FBI running domestic terrorism scams across America so that it can “catch” bad guys committing the crimes the FBI plotted out from the get-go. This seems like a complete waste of law enforcement resources. Although there are some very, very bright people in the FBI, CIA and NSA, they too often get ordered to do things that are utterly stupid. In my opinion, these agencies need to have smarter directives, and they also need to reach outside the box and start talking to independent-minded thinkers, authors, conspiracy historians and others who can offer precisely the kind of analysis you’ll never get from inside a bloated bureaucracy still living in the past.

If Trump gets elected President, I’d personally volunteer in his administration to help assess and shore up cyber vulnerabilities across America’s critical infrastructure. But even if that gets done, we still have the massive EMP weapon vulnerability that requires a few billion dollars (and several years) in power utility replacement costs to address. To be truly safe from cyber attacks, America would need to embark on a kind of “Manhattan Project” of cyber security. Specifically, passwords alone are not enough. Dual authentication schemes (tokenized or biometric) need to become the default standard in all sensitive installations, and vulnerable systems need to be taken offline and run locally (manually) until the vulnerabilities are eliminated.
