sheeple-1

- No one bothers to lie anymore (The Ugly Truth, April 11, 2015):

When Bush invaded Iraq, he lied about WMDs. When Obama destroyed Libya, he first got UN approval for a “no fly zone.” When Obama wanted to start bombing Syria, he lied about Syrian government nerve gas, and he invented the “ISIS” group.

Today no one bothers to lie any more.

No one bothers to use euphemisms and double-talk. No one bothers to create fairy tales about terrorist groups. No one bothers to claim that the targeted victims are a threat to the homeland. No one bothers with false flags and mass propaganda. Continue reading »

- This Is How Much Russians Hate America… (End Of The American Dream, Dec 29, 2014):

In Russia, shopping malls are putting out American flag doormats for people to wipe their feet on, and there are stores that are selling toilet paper with the American flag imprinted on it.  Surveys show that Russian attitudes toward the U.S. are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War, and ordinary Russians are blaming America for everything from the overthrow of the Ukrainian government to the collapse of the ruble.  The Russian government has just authorized a new military doctrine which identifies the United States as a top threat, and commentators on Russian television are using extremely strong language to condemn the United States.  In fact, one of the most prominent Russian commentators has referred to the United States as “the kingdom of the Antichrist“.  To the Russians, a new Cold War has erupted, and they very clearly view the United States as enemy number one.

- Is There Something Behind the Power Outage in Washington DC? (Armstrong Economics, April 10, 2015):

Power-Grid

The April 7th, 2015 power outage in Washington DC is curious to say the least. Virtually instantaneously, the government declare it was not a terrorist attack. After all, how could that possibly be when the NSA guards the country. If there was an attack on the power-grid, then the NSA would have to answer for their failure. So clearly, if it was an attack, they would never admit it.

Instead, this has been attributed to a piece of metal breaking loose from a power line 43 miles southeast of the District of Columbia, which knocked out electricity to the White House, State Department and wide area including parts of Maryland. Can a simple piece of metal break and shut down that much power of a strategic area as DC? That seems to be an excuse like some drunk driver knocked over a power pole.

Only six days before Obama had to switch to emergency power was on April 1st in Rome where the power supply was out for hours effecting the Lazio region. That included the major Roman airport of Fiumicino. The cause of that event somehow remains unknown. Continue reading »

- Define Irony: Obama Concerned China Using “Size, Muscle” To Bully Other Countries (Zerohedge, April 10, 2015):

To be sure, China has had a good couple of months when it comes to projecting their rising superpower status to the rest of the world. Indeed, Beijing’s military made history three times last week alone by agreeing to sell some $5 billion in subs to Pakistan, by getting set to start the country’s first nuclear submarine patrols, and by swooping in to rescue more than 200 evacuees in the embattled Yemeni port city of Aden (and risking armed conflict in the process) in what Reuters notes is “the first time that China’s military has helped other countries evacuate their people during an international crisis.”  Continue reading »

From no ‘boots on the ground’ in Iraq to 3500 US troops supporting “Operation Inherent Resolve” in 9 months… promises promises Mr. Obama.

There are already about 3,000 U.S. troops currently deployed in Iraq, including about 1,300 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team who deployed in January. But as Army Times reports,

About 500 more paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division will deploy this summer to Iraq and other locations in the region to support Operation Inherent Resolve. Continue reading »

- Sanaa-tized? Rights groups sue State Dept for refusing to evacuate 1,000s of Americans from Yemen (RT, April 10, 2015):

The US government has been sued over abandoning its citizens in Yemen, where up to 4,000 Americans are feared stranded. Pentagon officials claim an evacuation would be too dangerous for military personnel to carry out.

After the US Embassy in Yemen was evacuated along with all military personnel, there were no US forces left in the country to help American citizens who got stuck amid the worsening armed conflict.

Three Arab and Muslim human rights groups united in preparing a lawsuit bringing dozens of cases of American citizens denied evacuation from Yemen to the attention of the Obama administration. Some of the families stranded in Yemen have small children, maintains a lawsuit filed on Thursday, McClatchy DC reports.

- Ukraine ‘Disappears’ Regime Opponents (Washington’s Blog, April 7, 2015):

In Odessa — the same city where the Ukrainian civil war started on 2 May 2014 with a massacre of opponents that had been carefully planned by a team connected to the U.S. White House — there are reported to be two bloggers for the “Voice of Odessa” political site who were seized by the Security Bureau of Ukraine on April 7th, and whose “whereabouts are unknown.” This report appeared in the local Odessa News

The “Voice of Odessa” site was formed right after the massacre, in order to get an independent investigation and prosecution of the perpetrators of that massacre, in which officially 46 people were burned, shot and clubbed to death, but unofficial estimates run over 200, all victims who have not been heard from since, and some of whom had allegedly even been abducted from hospitals after the massacre.

Mideast Iran At Sea

The probability of a major escalation over the latest proxy Middle Eastern civil war just escalated substantially.

While it has been widely reported that the United States has been accelerating its weapons supply to the Saudi-led coalition striking rebels in Yemen as a sign of how foreign powers are deepening their involvement in the conflict, the biggest regional backer of the Houthi rebels, the state of Iran, had been mostly inert. Until this morning, when as AP reports, Iran dispatched a naval destroyer and another vessel Wednesday to waters near Yemen. Continue reading »

No-Dollars

- China “Can’t Believe Its Luck” On Investment Bank (ZeroHedge, April 7, 2015):

A few weeks back, we noted that China (via a state-run media outlet) appeared to be adopting a more conciliatory approach when it comes to describing Beijing’s vision for the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The venture, which Washington did its best to undermine last year, has made an unlikely run at taking center-geopolitical-stage even as other, more ostensibly newsworthy events (such as the veritable collapse of the Yemeni state and the ongoing crisis in Greece) vie for the market’s very limited attention span.

And while we, more than perhaps any other news outlet, have gone to great lengths to demonstrate the importance of what is not only a move by Beijing to inaugurate a sino-Monroe Doctrine but to simultaneously start the world on the path to yuan hegemony, we were also quick to note that there’s such a thing as being too successful, especially when it comes to making sure a whole cohort of Western nations who have just gone out on the proverbial limb in defiance of The White House, are left with some assurance that there’s at least some part of the institution which is actually aimed at promoting infrastructure development rather than operating solely as Beijing’s newest foreign policy tool. 

Sure enough, as both the NY Times and FT report, China “can’t believe its luck.” Continue reading »

FYI.


- Russian Government Hacked White House Computer System, CNN Reports (ZeroHedge, April 7, 2015):

Update: even the White House appears embarrassed by this “report.” According to Bloomberg, the CNN report that Russia breached the White House computer system is “speculating on the attribution of the activity of concern on the unclassified” White House network that was “disclosed last year,” NSC spokesperson Mark Stroh says.”This report is not referring to a new incident.” Stroh says in e-mail statement.

* * * * *

A few months ago, Sony used a ridiculous “hacking” publicity stunt to generate some $40 million more in revenues for what would otherwise have been the latest Seth Rogen “comic” flop, in which the film agency blamed North Korea – which has about ten ultramodern 80386 computers in the entire country – for hacking its firewall, a hack which was subsequently revealed to be the result of disgruntled former employee. Fast forward to today, when moments ago CNN reported that Russian hackers which according to left “tell-tale codes and other markers that they believe point to hackers working for the Russian government”, had penetrated the White House computer system.

- Former Blackwater Gets Rich As Afghan Drug Production Hits Record High (Guardian, March 31, 2015)


US-Special-Forces-Military-Opium-Heroin

- Afghan Mission accomplished: more heroin for the world (Jon Rappoport, April 6, 2015):

The Guardian reports statistics on opium agriculture in Afghanistan:

“…the US counternarcotics mission in Afghanistan stands out: opiate production has climbed steadily over recent years to reach record-high levels last year.”

“Far from eradicating the deep-rooted opiate trade, US counternarcotics efforts have proven useless, according to a series of recent official inquiries. Other aspects of the billions that the US has poured into Afghanistan over the last 13 years of war have even contributed to the opium boom.”

“In December, the United Nations reported a 60% growth in Afghan land used for opium poppy cultivation since 2011, up to 209,000 hectares…”

“…the [UN] inspector general also noted that US reconstruction projects, particularly those devoted to ‘improved irrigation, roads, and agricultural assistance’ were probably leading to the explosion in opium cultivation.

“’[A]ffordable deep-well technology turned 200,000 hectares of desert in southwestern Afghanistan into arable land over the past decade,’ the inspector general found, concluding that ‘much of this newly arable land is dedicated to opium cultivation’.”

- Here Comes Solyndra 2.0: Obama To Hire 75,000 Solar Workers (ZeroHedge, April 5, 2015):

What could possibly go wrong?

solyndra

Clearly having not learned their lesson from ‘interfering’ in free markets (and all the deflation-creating over-supplying, crony-capitalizing, taxpayer money-wasting malinvestment that goes with it), NBC News reports, The White House has announced a goal to train 75,000 workers in the solar industry by 2020, many of them veterans. In a sentence only President Obama could utter, he explains “these are good-paying jobs that are helping folks enter the middle-class.” Climate ‘fixed’, folks ‘fixed’, veterans ‘fixed’ middle-class-economics ‘fixed’… and we are sure it will be unequivocally good for America (until trade wars pick up once again).

obama-solyndra

As NBC News reports,

The White House has announced a goal to train 75,000 workers in the solar industry by 2020, many of them veterans.

“These are good-paying jobs that are helping folks enter the middle-class,” President Barack Obama said on Friday at Hill Air Force Base in Utah. The plan will expand on the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative’s Solar Instructor Training Network currently running at more than 400 community colleges.

The White House also announced the Solar Ready Vets program aimed at helping veterans transition into the solar industry. A joint program between the Department of Defense and the DOE, it’s currently being launched at 10 military bases across the country, including Hill Air Force Base and Camp Pendleton in California.

Obama touted the new goal as a way to bolster the economy and help meet the White House’s climate change goals, which call for greenhouse gas emissions to be cut 26 percent to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. The solar industry is creating jobs at a rate of 10 times faster than the overall economy, the White House said. Obama announced the new program the same day the March jobs report was released showing the most sluggish U.S. employment growth since December 2013.

- When Iran “Deal” Falls Apart, The Pentagon Is Ready: America’s Most Destructive “Bunker Buster” Gets An Upgrade (ZeroHedge, April 4, 2015):

Two weeks ago we noticed something quite “persuasive”: ahead of the culmination of the March 31 April 2 Iran nuclear negotiations, the US had dispatched a huge naval presence to the Persian Gulf as part of “Eagle Resolve” a military exercise held in plain view of the Iranian coastline. The massive operation would consist of tactical exercises from the US Army, Marines, and various other military branches “with simulated portions of the exercise based on a fictional adversary.” Just in case the intention of this wargame was not clear, a CENTCOM official was quick to point out that “the exercise is not intended as a signal to Iran.” Iran quickly got the “non-signal” message and a few days later agreed to a preemptive agreement with John Kerry which has since been revealed, is anything but a “nuclear deal.”

20150324_resolve1_0

So as the world awaits the outcome of next Iran “deadline”- the June 30 conclusion of the finalization of the Iran deal – the US is already hedging its bets. According to the WSJ, the Pentagon has “upgraded and tested the largest bunker-buster bomb in the U.S. arsenal, senior U.S. officials said, readying a weapon that could destroy or disable Iran’s most heavily fortified nuclear facilities should a nuclear deal fall apart and the White House decide to take military action.”

It turns out as the Nobel peace prize winner and his henchmen were talking peace, the Pentagon is actively preparing for war: Continue reading »

“Arming for riots across America?”

The U.S. government is getting ready for an all-out civil war.

Links are down below.


- Arming for Riots Across America? Homeland Stockpiling “Less Lethal Specialty Munitions” (ZeroHedge, April 4, 2015):

Riot police of the Western world have recently come up against a succession of formidable threats. In Frankfurt for instance, German authorities were forced to square off against a legion of angry clowns who, in an effort to express their displeasure at austerity measures advocated by the ECB (which was at the time celebrating the completion of their new Frankfurt headquarters), set quite a few things on fire. Meanwhile, in the mean streets of Montreal, an “association of young communists” forgot to provide authorities with a protest itinerary, which led police to settle the matter with rubber bullets and sound bombs. Finally, in Quebec City, riot police were accosted by dozens of students who wanted, among other things, for the library to stay open longer, leaving authorities with no choice but to show protesters the meaning of “crowd control” via point-blank tear gas gun assaults. Here are the visuals:

Protests2

Given that, and considering several recent contentious situations in Ferguson (Michael Brown) and New York (Eric Garner), it appears the Department of Homeland Security (via the US Customs and Border Protection dept) is intent on enhancing its ability to bring unruly crowds under control, so if you are a “less lethal” munitions supplier, you may want to check out the business opportunity the government has for you. Here’s the official summary: Continue reading »
