NATO uses any pretext to accuse Russia of harboring aggressive intentions. It has raised ballyhoo over the recent deployment of Iskander short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missiles to the Kaliningrad region.
Time and time again, the alliance reaffirms its bogus Russia narrative. “We see more assertive and stronger Russia that is willing to use force,” concluded NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg speaking at the round table in Passau, Bavaria on October 10.
Newly leaked emails show that Hillary Clinton’s campaign team was advised to link Russian President Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump in an apparent bid to distract voters from Clinton’s strategy on Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).
The exchange of emails between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and Clinton ally and columnist Brent Budowski was among the batch of around 1,000 emails from Podesta’s account released by WikiLeaks on Saturday. Continue reading »
Yesterday, when Philippine president Duterte finally took the plunge to announce his “separation” from the US (even if his government has backtracked somewhat today), he said that not only would he “realign” himself in China’s ideological flow but, in a nuance that was missed by many, said that “I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world – China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”
To be sure, an offical axis between China, Russia and a nation that until recently was a core US ally in the Pacific Rim – whose loss would be a huge slap in the face of Obama and whoever replaced him as president – would be music to Putin’s ears, which is why just minutes after Philippine president announced his stunning separation from the US, Russia’s ambassador to the country promptly said Moscow is ready to provide assistance to and fully cooperate with Manila.

It sure seems like an odd time to be provoking a war with Russia. As I write this, we stand just a little bit more than three weeks away from one of the most pivotal elections in U.S. history, and Barack Obama has chosen this moment to strongly threaten the Russians. As I wrote about on Friday, Reuters is reporting that Obama is contemplating “direct U.S. military action” against Syrian military targets, and the Russians have already indicated that any assault on Syrian forces would be considered an attack on themselves. The rapidly deteriorating crisis in Syria has already caused tensions with Russia to rise to the highest level since the end of the Cold War, but now Obama is adding fuel to the fire by publicly considering “an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia”. Apparently Obama believes that Russian hackers are interfering in the election and so he wants payback. The following comes from an NBC News article entitled “CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Strike Against Russia“…
The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News. Continue reading »

“Whilst I, personally admire him as a great protector of his Nation, especially since Bush & Obama knifed him over the NATO promise to not move missile bases into former USSR satellite States, the second paragraph ( on assassination attempts) is very interesting.”
Putin the Man, a television documentary, delves into the Russian leader’s past, with new claims including his heavy-drinking KGB spy days in Dresden and recent cosmetic surgery
Vladimir Putin regularly used violence against his divorced wife Lyudmila, a new German documentary about the Russian leader has claimed.
Putin the Man, made by ZDF television and shown for the first time this week, claimed to have been given access to previously unseen files of an unidentified Western intelligence agency.
The files include details of Mr Putin’s time as a young KGB officer stationed in Dresden in the eighties, as well as his later rise to power in Russia. Continue reading »
The events in the Middle East, Syria and Aleppo are the focus of global attention. Rarely has a battle been so decisive to the outcome of a war and the fate of hundreds of millions of people around the world
Hillary Clinton in the last presidential debate repeatedly called for the establishment of a no-fly zone (NFZ) in Syria. The concept, reiterated several times, clashes with the revelation contained in her private emails admitting that the implementation of a NFZ would entail the increased deaths of Syrian civilians. In a recent hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee, General Philip Breedlove was asked what kind of effort would be required for the US armed forces to impose a NFZ over Syrian skies. With obvious embarrassment, the General was forced to admit that such a request would involve hitting Russian and Syrian aircraft and vehicles, opening the door to a direct confrontation between Moscow and Washington, a decision the General was simply not willing to take. The military leadership has always shown a readiness to implement the military option; so this time they must have sniffed the danger of a direct conflict with Moscow. Continue reading »
In a striking report released on Friday night by NBC, the Obama administration was reportedly “contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action” (it remains unclear how the action is covert if Biden announced it to the world via an interview with Chuck Todd), a “wide-ranging clandestine cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership”, in retaliation for alleged interference in the American presidential election, and has asked the CIA to draft plans for a “wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.”
As we reported last night, Vice President Joe Biden said that Washington is ready to respond to hack attacks allegedly conducted by Russia and designed to interfere with the upcoming US elections. Continue reading »
I invite you to publish the world map in your newspaper and to mark all the US military bases on it. You will see the difference between America and Russia.
This is the full transcript of Corriere della Sera’s interview with Vladimir PutinLuciano Fontana: I would like to start with a question concerning Russian-Italian relations. This relationship has always been close and privileged, both in the economic and political spheres. However, it has been somewhat marred by the crisis in Ukraine and the sanctions. Could the recent visit by Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi to Russia and your upcoming visit to Milan somehow change this trend, and if so, what is needed for that? Continue reading »
In what is looking more and more like a season finale of the HBO series “House of Cards” with each passing day, the Obama administration is now literally threatening a cyber war with Russia over allegations it was behind the hacking of Clinton’s emails. According to an exclusive NBC report, the Obama administration “is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action” (though it’s unclear how exactly it’s covert if Biden is announcing it to the world via an interview with Chuck Todd) against Russia, in “retaliation for alleged” interference in the American presidential election, and has asked the CIA to draft plans for a “wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.” Continue reading »
After Russia’s foreign minister trolled the US election, describing it as a “pussy galore” moment, when in an interview with CNN’s Christine Ammanpour, he sad “there are so many pussies around your presidential campaign on both sides that I prefer not to comment,” his boss, Vladimir Putin also went on the record to address the allegation by US intelligence services which last Friday officially accused the Kremlin of coordinating the ongoing cyberattacks targeting democrats, and said that the scandal that hacking scandal has not been in Moscow’s interests and both sides in the U.S. election campaign are just using Russia to score points.
The Russian leaders’ statement comes one day after the White House did not reveal how if at all, it would respond to “Russia’s hacking”, but said it would consider a variety of responses to the alleged hacks.
Putin accused the US of “starting this hysteria, saying that this (hacking) is in Russia’s interests. But this has nothing to do with Russia’s interests,” in a speech during a business forum in Moscow.
He added that the accusations were a ploy to divert U.S. voters’ attention at a time when public opinion was being manipulated. “Everyone is talking about ‘who did it’ (the hacking),” said Putin. “But is it that important? The most important thing is what is inside this information.” Continue reading »
Vladimir Zhirinovsky is a total nutcase, but WW3 has been planned for us by TPTB.
The name of what is arguably Russia’s most flamboyant, ultra-nationalist politician, and according to some the local incarnation of Donald Trump, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a deputy in the state Duma and leader of the nationalist LDPR party, is familiar to frequent readers: he most recently made an appearance on these pages two months ago, when he warned Germany that it risks utter destruction if it continued on its present track of operating Bundeswehr forces in the Baltics. Zhirinovsky also shares another feature with Donald Trump: both are outspoken to a fault. Which is why we were not surprised to read that as Reuters reported earlier, Zhirinovsky urged Americans to vote for Donald Trump as president or “risk being dragged into a nuclear war.”
In an interview with Reuters, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, known in Russia and Europe for his fiery rhetoric, said that Trump was the only person able to de-escalate dangerous tensions between Moscow and Washington.
On the other hand, Hillary Clinton could spark World War Three, said the Russian who received a top state award from Putin after his pro-Kremlin Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) came third in Russia’s parliamentary election last month.
“Relations between Russia and the United States can’t get any worse. The only way they can get worse is if a war starts,” said Zhirinovsky, speaking in his huge office on the 10th floor of Russia’s State Duma, or lower house of parliament. “Americans voting for a president on Nov. 8 must realize that they are voting for peace on Planet Earth if they vote for Trump. But if they vote for Hillary it’s war. It will be a short movie. There will be Hiroshimas and Nagasakis everywhere.” Continue reading »
Must-see for my German speaking readers.
Oct 10, 2016
Tensions continue to rise as the war drums for Syria beat louder and louder and in this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth shows how if the US intervenes any further, sending in ground troops and attacking Syrian military bases — the result could be a direct war with Russia, and perhaps even China.
In the latest confirmation of deteriorating relations between Moscow and the West, Russian President Vladimir Putin canceled a visit to Paris next week after President Francois Hollande said he would see him only for talks on Syria.
Over the weekend, tensions emerged between Moscow and Paris after the Russian UN delegation vetoed a French-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution on Syria. French officials’ growing anger over a Russian-backed Syrian offensive against rebel-held areas of the city of Aleppo had led them to reconsider whether to host Putin on Oct. 19, Reuters reports.
“I made it known to Mr Putin that if he came to Paris, I would not accompany him to any ceremonies, but that I was ready to continue the dialogue on Syria. He decided to postpone the visit,” a questuionably hospitable Francois Hollande said earlier at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. Continue reading »
Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan have urged a swift end to the bloodshed in war-torn Syria, following talks between the two leaders in Istanbul on Monday.
“Both Russia and Turkey stand for the earliest cessation of bloodshed in Syria. In Russia we think that the switch to a political settlement must happen as soon as possible. We suppose that everybody, who wants peace, should support this proposal,” Putin said. Continue reading »
Less than three months after Turkey’s president Erdogan, in the aftermath of the mid-July “failed coup” visited Putin in Russia in his first and very symbolic foreign trip, Putin has returned the favor with a visit of his own to Turkey, where he promptly confirmed that economic relations between the two nations are on solid footing with the November 2015 downing of a Russian fighter jet over Turkey now largely forgotten, and where Turkey and Russia earlier today signed the strategic Turkish Stream gas pipeline agreement.
As noted previously, once completed the pipeline will carry Russian natural gas to Turkey under the Black Sea, and on to Greece and Europe. The project, with an estimated total cost of $13 billion, was announced in December 2014 during Putin’s visit to Turkey as an alternative to the canceled South Stream pipeline through Bulgaria, which the Bulgarian government killed due to European pressure.

Following last week’s sharp escalation in diplomacy between the US and Russia, when John Kerry warned of not only breaking off diplomatic relations over Syria with Russia, and threatening to use “military force” including potentially US-based ground forces in Syria for the first time, but also slamming Russian strikes over Aleppo as “barbaric”, Russia responded Monday when Russian President Vladimir Putin suspended an agreement with the United States for disposal of weapons-grade plutonium because of “unfriendly” acts by Washington, the Kremlin said.

Stalin Churchill,, Roosevelt and Hitler were Freemasons.
Obama, Putin, etc. are also Freemasons.
Expect the same outcome!!!
“WW3 that is.”
Brought to you by the Rothschild PTB.
If Obama behaves like an idiot that is because he has been told to do exactly that.
Editor’s Note: The ridiculous hypocrisy of this is enough to make one’s head implode. Then again, this is a guy who just got done telling the United Nations that America is “a force for good” in the world without bursting into laughter.
by Darius Shahtahmasebi
Barack Obama recently criticized presidential candidate Donald Trump’s admiration of Vladimir Putin, but his complaint was hypocritically laughable. Though no one in their right mind would pretend the Russian president is any kind of saintly figure, Obama’s choice of words in scrutinizing his Russian counterpart turned into a largely accurate description of himself.
The American president attacked Trump for praising Putin as being a “strong leader” despite the fact that, according to Obama, Putin “invades smaller countries,” jails political opponents, controls his country’s media, and has driven Russia’s economy into recession.
Let’s go through those claims one by one. Continue reading »
The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. Continue reading »

“Looking at this from the other angle, (180′) you can clearly see the Merc speeding along the central restricted lane then suddenly veering off into the Chauffeur’s BMW.
But how would they be sure it would be in that lane?
Sorry I think it was just an accident caused by an eejit.”

Shocking footage of the lethal crash has been released by Russian media.
In the clip, the Russian President’s official black BMW can be seen speeding down a Moscow highway before another vehicle smashes into it.
The accident was reportedly caused when a Mercedes crossed over from the opposite side of the road without warning.

“Everything calls peace, Schalom! Then it will occur – a new Middle East war suddenly flames up, big naval forces are facing hostiley in the Mediterranean – the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkan: I see a “large one” falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him – then impact is on impact. …”
Benjamin Netanyahu is considering Russia’s offer to host Israeli-Palestinian talks in Moscow, a statement from the Israeli PM’s press service said.
“[Netanyahu] presented Israel’s position whereby he is always ready to meet [Abbas] without preconditions and is therefore considering the Russian president’s proposal and the timing for a possible meeting,” the statement reads, as cited by Reuters news agency.
The statement came after Netanyahu held talks with Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Envoy to the Middle East, Mikhail Bogdanov.
If agreed upon, the talks would be the first between the two leaders in several years, amid the ongoing rift in the region. Continue reading »
Roughly at the same time as China’s infamous snub of Obama‘s arrival at Hangzhou for the G-20 summit, when the G-20 host nation’s delegation first made sure there was no staircase for Obama to exit the plane and descend on the red carpet; forcing the president of the world’s most powerful nation to use an emergency exit…
… followed by a shouting match by a Chinese official who unleashed on the US Press corps and national security advisor Susan Rice, blocking them from crossing a blue rope holding back press and saying “This is our country. This is our airport”, Chinese officials had no such problems greeting Russian president Vladimir Putin with full honors, whose arrival – on the red carpet – took place without a glitch.
Paul Joseph Watson is on a roll lately.
His commentary is spot-on regarding the media giving Hillary a free pass for out-of-control Russia-bating, Russia bashing, and basically, irresponsible war-mongering.
It is going to backfire badly on her.
His recent videos about Hillary’s ‘Trump is a Racist‘ speech, and Hillary’s health problems were excellent too. His video of a month ago about Hillary’s health problems went viral, getting almost 4 million views, and was a major catalyst in public awareness that something is seriously wrong.
By the way, she looks terrible in this video, there is definitely something going on with her health.

Probably just a ‘coincidence’ that Merkel holds her hands in this position, again and again and again …
Pan out and the real shape of the world is clear…
Europe’s Juncker marginalized, China close to Germany, Putin pulling strings, Obama eagerly looking on, and Theresa May and the Saudis ‘close’

Continue to prepare for collapse – now more than ever!!!
(Especially water & food and anything that can be used for self-defense.)
We have recently written about how Angela Merkel in Germany has encouraged her citizens to begin stockpiling food and provisions to protect themselves in the event of an “attack”.
Since, in the last week, the US State Department has issued an updated travel warning for Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza strip as well as Turkey.
And now, just this week, Russians are being awakened by the deafening noise of emergency war sirens as a simultaneous “military combat readiness check” took place for Russian soldiers from August 25th-31st according to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. Vladimir Putin ordered these readiness checks in the Southern, Western, and Central military districts. Continue reading »

“Again, after studying the comparisons between the ‘golden goose, corrupt military industrial complex’ of the USA and the Russian Federation budgetary controlled Ministry of Defence, and the efficiency within the required parameters with which new equipment is produced from conception to field trials, it is obvious the Russian principle is indeed defence and based on National pride, in contrast to the offense based warmongering, neocon bankster led USA.
Shame the mainstream media will twist Putin’s defensive directive into an offensive one, but they will.”
I found that “Superstation95” is making up some of its news.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has declared a mobilization of reservists!
The Russian government, including all its Ministries, even Russia’s National bank, are now also taking part in sudden “wartime test.”
Reservists in the Southern, Central and Western Military Districts are being called up, and trucks from the civilian sector are being transferred into military service as per the mobilization plans. In addition, workers in militarily vital industries in southern Russia are being conscripted into the Ministry of Defense – they can no longer quit or transfer without military approval for the duration of the alert.
