It’s Kicking Off: Multiple Mortar Attacks On US Bases In Iraq, Hezbollah Warns Washington “Stay Away”

As thousands of Iranian took to the streets in Iran’s major cities, chanting “Death to America” in protest against assassination by US forces of Soleimani, Al-Arabiya and other middle east news sources report rockets have landed in the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, where the US Embassy and other allied organisations are based.

Sky News Arabia reported that the missile landed in the Green Zone in Baghdad forcing the closure of roads leading to the American embassy. Additionally, there are now reports that multiple rockets have struck Balad Airbase, located just north of Baghdad, that hosts US troops and air force personnel.

Other reports say pro Iranian militias in Iraq are attacking US bases with mortar fire. One such attack attack is reportedly underway at the US military base at Al-Kindi in Mosul.

As yer there is no confirmation of any of these reports but it seems certain Iran is mounting a major offensive against US military forces and western civilian operations in Iraq in retribution for the assassination by precision air strike of one of Iran’s most senior commanders.

Iran Bombing: Trump Says US Not Seeking To Start A War

The assassination of a popular Iranian general in Baghdad could turn out to be the game-changer in the midle east after years of increasing tensions between between the deep state in Washington and the Ayatollahs in Tehran. Until now, mainly due to the looming presence of Iran’s allies Russia and China hostilities have been confined to the proxy war, occasional terrorist outrages such as the attacks on shipping in the gulf and a lot of over the top rhetoric.

The Trump administration has however escalated the situation with with Iran to what is perhaps a point of no return on Friday by ordering a targeted air strike on a convoy leaving Baghdad airport, ostensibly a response to what The White House claims was an organised attack on the US embassy in Iraq by armed militiamen, but looked far more like a planned assassination of Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Quds Force.

(No linked sources here sorry, the information is all from TV news bulletins or internet news feeds not available to non subscribed users – editor)

The Iranian general and some say 2nd most powerful man in the country was blown up along with 11 other people, including a senior commander of an Iraqi militia backed by Tehran, when their motorcade was hit by US guided missiles.

All day world media have speculated about how and when the inevitable Iranian revenge attack would happen. The government in Tehran must respond to the assassination of Soleimani or lose face internationally. Unconfirmed reports tell us Iranian missiles have hit Ain Al-Assad the largest US military base in Iraq. IRGC Telegram news channel reports ‘massive explosions’ at the installation. Bear in mind this is an Iranian domestic news source so information from it should be treated with scepticism until conformed by more reliable agencies.

President Trump on Friday said that America does not seek “regime change” in Iran, and that the United States “took action last night to stop a war” by killing Iran’s #2 commander, Qasem Soleimani, on Thursday.

A similar report came from reporter Sina Toossi who notes that an Iraqi Twitter has posted a picture of the alleged missile attack on al-Ain base, and notes that Iranian outlet Mehr has also reported massive explosions at the Ain al-Assad military base in Iraq’s Anbar province, the largest US military base in the country.

Speaking from Mar-a-Lago one day after the strike, President Trump said that Soleimani “made the death of innocent people his sick passion.”

“We caught him in the act and terminated him,” said Trump, adding that The US is “ready and prepared to take whatever action is necessary.”

“We took action last night to stop a war.”

Will Macron / Johnson Skulduggery Lead To A Hard Brexit?

When Boris Johnson’s Conservatives crushed the Corbyn – led, anti – Semitic, terrorist loving, far – left, borderline Maoist incarnation of the Labour Party in the UK’s General Election  on December 12 (thus giving Donald Trump’s hopes of re-election as US presiident in 2020 as the Democrats seem determinted to pick an equally whacky, far left candidate as their nomineee,) the resulting solid majority voters gave Johnson led many political pundits to predict that it would marginalise the Brexit lobby and free Johnson to negotiate a soft landing type deal with the EU.

But, love him or hate him, Johnson is a far more astute politician than that. He knows his impregnable majority is down to traditional Labour voters deserting the party, not simply over its failure to take a clear position on leaving the EU as most of mainstrwam media would have us believe, but for many identifiable reasons whoch can be condensed down to a single sentence by saying the working classes believe Labour has abandoned them and is not the party of lawyers, academics and managers.

The working classes are not stupid, though not all are highly articulate as Labour’s lawyer – politicians tend to be, and not all are academically gifted as most of Labour’s university educated candidates, parachuted into safe constituencies in working class areas by party headquarters tend to be, they know where their interests lie. And it is not in the hands of a party that would open the borders to millions of uneducated, unskilled third world migrants, or which promises to fund its profligate public spending by “taxing the rich.” Working class people are not easily fooled, they know the seriously rich have their money tied up in trust funds and investments which are protected from the taxman. And they know those investments can quickly be moved offshore should any future Maoist government threaten to seize personal assets.

They also know something which socialist economists (who generally have a sub – zero IQ rating,) remain blissfully unaware of. The majority of invested wealth is held by pension funds and investment trusts used by small savers. So Labour’s “tax the rich” pland would hit the moderately well off, the thrifty and those who had no choice but to save for retirement by paying into a company pension fund as Labour’s taxation plans have always previously hit hardest at those whose votes Labour has relied on. Well that’s socialism for you folks.

So after a hundred years, as Labour has gradually moved more and more towards becoming the party of affluent intellectuals, the working classes have seen through the pretence. Socialists do not care about the working classes, socialist care only about their votes as a stepping stone to power.

However, as previously mentioned, Boris Johnson is an astute politician, he knows that former Labour voters did not turn out and vote Conservative, instead they stayed at home and did not vote, while large numbers of traditional Conservative voters who had stayed at home in the previous election in protest as Theresa May’s inept leadership and  attempts to negotiate a leaving deal with the EU that would effectively keep the UK tied to EU law and policies made by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels. And Johnson knows if he wants to be re-elected he must get the Conservative voters out again at the next election, and at least keep the Labour voters at home if he cannot persuade them to switch alliegence.

It is perhaps with all this in mind Prime Minister Johnson appears to have chosen to play it tough with the EU.

Then he could undermine Brexit by giving back all the concessions during his subsequent negotiations with the EU over a trade deal.

This analysis should have been the correct one given the staunch opposition by the political elite in the U.K. to Brepxit.

So the political situation in the UK has changed. For all the haters say about him, Boris has the likeability factor while more of Labour’s likeable figures are gone, stepp[ed down like Andy Burnham, now Mayor of Manchester, or defeated, like Caroline Flint, for may years the hottest female politician in Britain. And because the Conservatives know they must hold the working class to hold on to power, and working class voters by a considerable majority support our leaving the EU, a soft Brexit is no longer a viable way forward.

This is probably why Boris Johnson is almost channeling Nigel Farage in his ‘come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough’ approach to trade negotiations with the European Union.

The modified Withdrawal Bill passed by the new Parliament with six Labour defectors in the week before Christmas strengthens Johnson’s hand as he embarks on new trade negotiations with the organisation that said it would absolutely not renegotiate Theresas May’s Brexit In Name Only deal,  by removing any potential extension of negotiations beyond the end of 2020. There are a ton of changes noted in the Guardian article linked above covers.

The original two year transition period EU Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier was planning on using to bully whoever became political leader of the UK into accepting whatever one – sided conditions the EU chose to impose is gone. January 31st Brexit happens, and for the following eleven months the EU can negotiate or we leave at the end of the year on WTO terms (Hard Brexit). This would hit the EU, and particularly the EU’s biggest economies, Germany, France, Italy and Spain far harder than it will hit Britain which has an enormous deficit in its trade with the EU, largely because EU protectionism prevents us sourcing many of our imports more cheaply from outside the Union.

Although the political situation is changing in Britain, it is changing in Europe too.

Given the context of his negotiations with French President Emmanuel Macron in October which secured the current Withdrawal Treaty, it seems Boris sees more clearly than Theresa May ever did that it is Britain rather than the European Union which negotiates from a position of strength.

The keys to understanding the EU’s weakness is the shifting dynamic between France, Germany and the U.K. in relation to their relationship with the United States, the underlying weakness of the EU single currency system, The Euro, and the political weakness of Emmanuel Marcon as, after struggling for a year to resolve the internalo conflict with the Yellow Vests movement’s protests over high taxes,  he now faces a general strike against his proposed reforms to France’s retirement and pensions policy .

Simultaneously Macron is pushing France to unseat Germany as the de facto rule-setter for the EU. He wants more integration at every level, but most importantly fiscally, while the fragile coalition government led by Chancellor Merkel could fall at any time, plunging Berlin into chaos.

Macron, a former Goldman Sachs Investment Banker understands that the euro is in trouble and that around half the 27 members of the Union are economic basket cases. Since the 2008 financial crisis the European Central Bank (ECB) bought aaround €1.5trillion of junk bonds in its efforts to prop up Eurozone economies. The French president also sees the flaw in this policy is because of the lack of fiscal integration of EU member states, this puts enormous pressure on the more successful economies which are already stalling due to the EU’s expansionism. For the euro to survive at least three  things need to happen.

  1. There needs to be a single entity capable of issuing and redeeming Euro-zone sovereign debt. Until and unless that happens the weaker states will continue to issue Euro denominated bonds and rely on the ECB to buy them.
  2. The euro has to weaken considerably to remove the garrote around the necks of countries like Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and even France. Unfortunately for the past three and a half years EU officials have been forcing the bank to keep the value ofv the Euro high to undermine the UK pound.
  3. Much of the existing sovereign debt needs to be converted into a Eurobond, doing away with much of the stock of debt as liabilities for member states like Italy and Spain.

Macron also understood that British voters would never accept the EU overturning Brexit in the same way as it had previously overturned results of democratic votes in France, Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Italy and most recently Spain, and the way it had planned with the government of long term EU loyalist Theresa May. He saw the opportunity to cut Britain loose, thuse easing the path of France to more power, and to shaft Germany at the same time.

Germany will not be eager for any of these developments, the current single currency system is designed to benefit German’s manufacturing base and underwrite its mercantilism. The status quo suits Germany fine, the country has benefited handsomely from the hollowing out of member states economies through the internal trade advantages the Euro gives German business. Once the weaker economies are insolvent, Germany has used its financial clout to force debt restructuring, buying up assets at pennies on the euro. The prime example of this is what happened in Greece.

This explains why the single currency system is designed the way it is. What Emmanuel Macron sees as a flaw was in fact a plan, rather it was the plan. They may claim to have had genuine reasons for doing this, but this is classic colonialism.

But, what does this have to do with Brexit? Quite a lot actually.

Macron installed convicted criminal and former IMF chief Christine Lagarde as head of the ECB to push for fiscal integration and to politically blackmail the Germans into going along with it.

How? By threatening to write down or allowing default on the massive $850 billion in TARGET 2 liabilities German banks have in euro-zone sovereign debt on their balance sheets.

But there’s no way City of London and the crown would survive the British people’s anger at underwriting the costs of this shakedown and subsequent debt crisis.

Nigel Farage and the other hard Brexiteers understood that this was a key issue, but one that didn’t resonate with voters. Fishing rights and immigration get people to the polls, not bailing out German banks.

But, make no mistake, Farage, the old commodities trader, knows that breaking the British banking system free from the EU’s and put up a hard border, as it were, between them is the key to a successful Brexit.

And I suspect, after it was clear they couldn’t convince the British people otherwise, that City of London and the Crown saw this as well.

So, Macron and Johnson looked at the landscape clearly and with the blessing of the British political class negotiated a settlement.

By allowing Johnson and the U.K. to get clear of the fiscal and political storm, Macron gets even more leverage over Germany whose economy is the one hurt most by a hard Brexit.

The Germans run a huge trade surplus with the U.K. Cutting that down weakens the euro and Germany at the same time.

Germany will insist on bail-ins of depositors versus bailing out the Italian government. But Macron realizes the only way for the EU to survive the coming debt crisis is to over-ride Germany’s deflationary attitudes. They are going to have to print euros like no tomorrow.

He may throw Merkel a bone in the negotiations but it won’t be much. Macron is many things, but he’s not stupid. He knows the Euroskeptic populists will eventually rise to power in Italy, Spain, Portugal and potentially even Germany. He knows he’s in trouble in France. And he knows the wheels have come off Merkel’s federalization bandwagon because German taxpayers are sick of propping up the European Projectfinancially.

The miserable results returned by the two leading German political parties supporting moves towards a federal Europe are an indicator of the public’s disillusionment with EU policy. Prime Minister Johnson may be just what France has been waiting for in order to tip the balance of power in its favour.

Leaked email: Senior OPCW Official Orders “Delete All Traces” Of Dissent On Douma Gas Attack Narrative

We have reported here previously that the alleged use of Chemical weapons by forces controlled by Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad against his own people, investigated by the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons  was not unanimously found by investigators to be the work of the Assad regime. The official narrative was designed to justify full scale military intervention by US and NATO forces in Syria’s civil war, but western leaders were dissuaded for this course of action by Russia’s Putin and China’s President Xi.

Later, while the bulk of the investigative panel stick to the script, it was revealed that a minority report actually considered the facts, which pointed to the gas attack on Douma being a false flag attack carried out by forces attached to terrorist group Al Nusra.

Now documents released by Wikileaks expose corruption in the OPCW whose senior officers are exposed as having tried to prevent to minority report going public.

from AlMasdarNews.com,

Wikileaks has released their fourth set of leaks from the OPCW’s Douma investigation, revealing new details about the alleged deletion of important information regarding the fact-finding mission.

“One of the documents is an e-mail exchange dated 27 and 28 February between members of the fact finding mission (FFM) deployed to Douma and the senior officials of the OPCW. It includes an e-mail from Sebastien Braha, Chief of Cabinet at the OPCW, where he instructs that an engineering report from Ian Henderson should be removed from the secure registry of the organisation,” WikiLeaks writes. Included in the email is the following directive:

Please get this document out of DRA [Documents Registry Archive]… And please remove all traces, if any, of its delivery/storage/whatever in DRA.’”

According to Wikileaks, the main finding of Henderson, who inspected the sites in Douma, was that two of the cylinders were most likely manually placed at the site, rather than dropped. Eye witness reports exposed news video of the rescue operation as having been faked.

“The main finding of Henderson, who inspected the sites in Douma and two cylinders that were found on the site of the alleged attack, was that they were more likely manually placed there than dropped from a plane or helicopter from considerable heights. His findings were omitted from the official final OPCW report on the Douma incident,” the Wikileaks report said.

It must be remembered that the U.S. launched an attack on Damascus, Syria on April 14, 2018 over alleged chemical weapons usage by pro-Assad forces at Douma.

Another document released Friday is minutes from a meeting on 6 June 2018 where four staff members of the OPCW had discussions with “three Toxicologists/Clinical pharmacologists, one bioanalytical and toxicological chemist” (all specialists in chemical weapons, according to the minutes).

Leavers Decry Boris’ Deal But RemainersAre Panicking

 

As Britain gears up for a General Election on December 12, accusations fly from both sides in the Brexit debate about Boris Johnson’s deal.

“It’s a betrayal, not really Brexit, it will leave us still subject to EU laws and trade regulations,” Leave supporters say.

“It will trash our economy, destroy the value of the pound, cause massive increases in unemployment and leave us politically isolated in a hostile world,” say the people who for three years have tried all sorts of stunts to thwart Brexit.

So where does that put the majority of us who voted Leave on the basis of a considered review of evidence rather than some ideological agenda?

No, you can’t always get what you want
aaaah
No, you can’t always get what you want
aaaah
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need

So sang the rolling stones more years ago than I care to remember. It was good advice that I, as a Leave voter who voted LEAVE (in capital letters), not leave with a dodgy deal, leave but stay in a customs union and subject to EU laws and certainly not “think about leaving and then decide to have another referendum,.” after my experience of working for the EU I wanted a clean break.

But I was under no illusions, you can’t always get what you want annd knowing the political and legal establishment, the media, much of the business community and academe were rabidly pro EU and all that it stands for it would have been unreasonable to expect we’d get clean away.
The EU did not want to let us go, our own political parties and opinion makers were hopelessly divided and gave no leadership, .and when the Conservative Party backroom deal makers shoehorned Theresa May into Downing Street I almost plunged into despair.

Boris’ deal is not great, there are some strings attached that may be hard to break, but unlike the Leavers who are claiming it is a betrayal or it is the same as May’s deal, I’m willing to give him a chance.He called the EU’s bluff and managed to convince them he was serious enough about No Deal to make them reopen May’s surrender treaty and not only secure some concessions but also open a few gates to amending the terms of our relationship with the EU later.

And we have dates at which various states of the transition will be completed.

So let’s not fool ourselves that a ‘no deal’ exit would have meant totally in the EU one.day, totally out the next, that was never going to happen just as when two commercial organisations merge they do not become a new organisation overnight.

I did not get what I wanted, but given that Boris and his team have rescued us from May’s awful deal, I’ll settle for what is on offer for the present and keep working to expose the EU for the Cultural Marxist project it is, hoping that in some small way I can influence our politicians to progressively increase the distance between London and Brussels and encourage voters in other EU states to step up the pushback agains the EU Commission’s imperal ambitions.

After all it might be what we need to strike a bow at the foundations of the European project to create a federal superstate from Europe;s sovereign nations.

Enter The Dragon Redux: Hillary Clinton Preparing 2020 Presidential Run?

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com,

Enter, The Dragon

You’d think Hillary Clinton might come up with a better zinger than “Russian asset” when she flew out of her volcano on leathery wings Friday and tried to jam her blunted beak through Tulsi Gabbard’s heart. Much speculation has been brewing in the Webiverse that the Flying Reptile of Chappaqua might seek an opening to join the Democratic Party 2020 free-for-all. Wasn’t “Russian asset” the big McGuffin in the Mueller Report – the tantalizing and elusive triggering device that added up to nothing — and aren’t most people over twelve years old onto that con by now?

It’s not like Tulsi Gabbard was leading the pack, with two cable news networks and the nation’s leading newspapers ignoring her existence. Tulsi must have been wearing her Kevlar flak vest because she easily fended off the aerial attack and fired back at the squawking beast with a blast of napalm:

     “Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies….”

Ouch! The skirmish does raise the question, though: is the Democratic Party so sick and rotted that it would resort to entertaining Hillary Clinton as the 2020 nominee? Fer sure, I’d say.

Standoff Between Pakistan And India May Spark Nuclear Conflict, Envoy Warns

The long running, low key conflict between his country and India-rivals could ignite a nuclear war that would kill hundreds of millions, the head of Pakistan’s diplomatic mission to Kashmir has warned. said that. These comments, come just days after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan used similar rhetoric to warn India off further escalation of tensions.

Pakistani Kashmere – beautiful but is it worth fighting a nuvlear war over (Pic: Wikimedia)

“If a war breaks out between India and Pakistan, it will be quick, dirty and deadly. It will be an Armageddon, hundreds of millions will die in South Asia, and 2.5 billion people will be affected by radiation all over the world,” said Masood Khan, the president of the Pakistani-controlled part of Kashmir, according to a report by RT

Just because other countries wouldn’t be involved in this particular war, the consequences of unleashing a nuclear weapon would have far-reaching effects.

With two nuclear powers, one with a population of 1.2 billion while the other has over 200 million people facing off, how many other countries need to be involved to turn any conflict into the biggest mass slaughter in history?

Masood Khan, Pakistan’s former envoy to the United Nations, then struck a more conciliatory tone than his country’s Prime Minister, saying his country is not seeking war, but he wants to predict “a realistic scenario so that international community could intervene and pile pressure on India.”

So basically, Kahn is still asking for violence, just as long as it’s on his side only.

India and Pakistan previously fought wars over the disputed territory of Kashmir in 1947 and 1965, and have engaged in an array of smaller cross-border skirmishes since, most recently in February of this year. Then, although the incident received little coverage in minstream media the nuclear-armed neighbors came too close for comfort to full-scale war, but mutual diplomatic efforts and goodwill gestures helped lower the temperature for a while, reported RT

Last week, Imran Khan warned that a “bloodbath was brewing in the disputed territory, and hinted that weapons of mass destruction could be employed against India if war does breaks. The remarks were condemned in New Delhi, with government ministers and pundits accusing him of warmongering” and “obsession with Kashmir.”

Or when earlier this year, now former Secretary of State Tillerson blamed Russia for an Alleged Syrian chemical attack despite admitting he doesn’t know who actually did it?
Or when the US finally admitted there was “no evidence” Assad used sarin gas

Can Muslim Culture Ever Integrete With Tolerant Western Socities?
We in the developed nations are constantly told we must accept multiculturalism (Why? We never voted in favour of it?), celebrate diversity (We do celebrate diversity, there are thousands of diverse lifestyle within western societies) and adapt to accommodate the quirky but charming traditions of immigrants …

Europe In Crisis About The Mediterranean Boat People
The intervention in Libya by western powers France, UK and USA (the FUKUS axis) was morrally and politically wrong as well as being perhaps the most stupid example of balls out politics by an American president ever. To overthrow the leader of any nation, no matter how unpopular he is with other world leaders, is a dangerous game.

Gaddafi’s home town falls to Islamic State in anarchic Libya</a
Under the rule of strongman dictator Muammar Gaddafi Libya was the most prosperous nation on the African continent and its nationals had the highest standard of living. Since the western Coalition, the FUKUS Axis led by Barack Hussein Obama (nee Barry Dunham) supported a rag tag army of dissidents, malcontents and religious fanatics by bombing the Gaddafi regime (along with much of Libya’s infrastructure to oblivion, the nation has descended into near anarchy.

Elderly Sweedish Residents Evicted to Make Way for Asylum Seekers

The latest outrage from Sweden’s Politically Correct Fascists is a report about elderly residents of the Millmark center in Sörmark, being served with eviction notices on last week because their group retirement home declared was due to be transformed into a government asylum shelter for ‘refugees’ (aka illegal immigrants).

Brexit – The End Of The European Superstate Dream?
David Cameron, having won the election with a wafer thin majority is now under the cosh from eurosceptics in his own party as well as party managers panicked by the rise of UKIP. He has promised an early in-out referendum on Britain’s future membership of the EU but can he win the concessions he needs to secure a yes vote from the punters

How Congressional Republicans Lie to Approve Obama Trade Deals
With opposition to Obama’s ‘anything-but-free’ trade treaties Trans Pacific Partnership and Trans-Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership strengthening both in the USA and Europe, it is interesting to observe how support for Obama’s neo – con inititiative which would grant corporate lawyers the power to overturn national law, is not falling according to the usual political party lines. Billionaires and those on the payroll of global corporations are broadly in support, others are recognising the threat to democracy and personal liberty.

The Free Trade Deception Almost No One Understands
More on those evil twins of global trade, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which are not about freeing business from bureaucracy but freeing corporations from the tiresome obligation to obey national laws covering trading standards, food quality, workers’ rights, consumer protection and the environment. We’ve written about both treaties many times before.

Moroccan Youths Selling Arse, Hash On The Streets of Stockholm
At least 200 children from Morocco alone are currently roaming the streets of Stockholm, selling their bodies and committing various crimes such as drug peddling, theft, pickpocketing, shoplifting and robbery. It is known that over 11,000 illegal immigrants whose asylum applications were rejected have gone underground in Swedish cities.

Globalization and the Retrun To Serfdom
When the power elites promise something that will benefit people everywhere it can be taken what the world will get is the opposite. Thus when we were told globalisation would make everybody more prosperous, abolish poverty and narrow the gap between rich and poor, only a fool would have failed to regognize what was on offer comprised a return to medieval poverty and servitude for the masses while the rich became richer.

U.S. versus Russia War: Top Russian Politics Scolar Stephen Cohen Tells The Truth
We have been blogging for four years about the US drive for war, provocation of Russia in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere made it obvious. But I’m just a news junkie with a strong sense of curiosity and have wondered why the US seems set on this course. Good to see experts like Stephen Cohen, a prominent expert on, Russia are coming onside.

Stupidity Of America’s Lust For War With Russia
We have reported many times on the American attempts to provoke Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin in the hope that Puting will then fire the first shot in the war the USA so desperately needs to revive its failed economy, unify its dysfunctional society and restore is to the position of dominant global superpower …

Told You So – You Wouldn’t Vote UKIP, Now The Nazis Are In Charge
As the new EU President Jean – Claude Drunkard usurps another power that belongs to the parliaments of sovereign nations by telling leaders who they may and may not nominate to ‘his’ commission, we try to ramp up anti European feeling a little more. The sooner ?Britain is out of this corrupt bureaucratic dictatorship (and we’ll be followed by Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Austria and Hungary for starters) the better.

Iraq’s borders are crumbling: this is a disaster for western foreign policy
It was inevitable. I started commentating on world affairs in 2005, a few years before The Daily Stirrer was set up. TRhe Iraq conflict was still going on at that time, George W Bush was boasting ‘mission accomplished’ and the Islamist militias were positioning themselves for the moment the Americans withdrew. Bush’s even more inept successor withdrew occupying troops for purely political reasons and since then Iraq has slid into the grip of fanatics who would establish an Islamic theocracy.

Putin Plays Balls Out Politics – But Obama Backs Down And Keeps His Covered
Barack Obama ought to have learned that it is a bad idea to play balls out politics against Russia’s Vladimir Putin by now. But Barry does not learn and so when the two confronted each other over the Syrian civil war, Vladdie whack his on the tabled and Obame covered his ctotch with his hands and slunk away …

So You Still Think It’s A Good Idea To Get Involved In Syria?
As Barack Obama ramps up the war rhetoric in a desperate bid to involve America in the Syrian Conflict and (he vainly hopes) thus save his failed Presdiency and David Cameron keeps his tongue firmly inserted in Obama’s are, it’s good to know somebody is in touch with reality.

Iraq War Criminal Tony Blair Urges More Western War Crimes In Syria
You would think Tony Blair would have enough deaths on his conscience after his pivotal role in starting the Iraq and Afghanistan failures but no, God’s best friend is shilling for western involvement in another bloodbath, in Syria this time.

Left behind when the Bilderberg Group checked out
Members of the nororious Bilderberg Group, the cabal of wealthy and powerful bankers, investors and business peoiple that meeeyts annually but will not tell us what they talk about, have all checked out of this year’s venue, The Grove Country House Hotel, Watford, but some members of the alternative news media infiltrated the site and took the opportunity to dig around. Investigative journalists from the UK Column …

Obama Administration Frames Assad As Excuse For Sending US Arms To Al Qaeda Rebels
When Obama started feeding the bloodlust of Syria’s rebels with U S Armaments shipped via Turkey he must have thought the overthrow of Assad, demanded by his Islamic paymasters, a foregone conclusion. Russia, Chiuna and Iran had other ideas. Now Obama’s latest scam to justify war on the Syrian dictator is exposed and he looks like a loser. Tough.

Heart Disease: A Heart Specialist Finally Admits ‘The Science Is Wrong.
For years doctos, government health experts and drug companies have been telling us cholesterol (a natural substance made in the body) is the cause of heart disease. And that the only way to deal with with cholesterol is to go on drugs for the rest of our life. Well it was all lies aimed at increasing drug company profits.

The Most Secretive And Oppressive regime In The Modern World.
When talk turns to the suppression of free speech by totalitarian regimes, we think of Soviet Russia, Maoist China, Nazi Germany, the theocratic dictorships of the middle east and the regimes of bemedalled buffoons with a taste for killing their country’s citizens. but increasingly it is governments in the west that are suppressing freee speech.

What Happened To The Idea Of Financiasl Privacy
Not long ago I posted a report here about the near – criminal Payday Loans industry, their usurious interest rates and implacable pursuit of defaulters. I have never had any dealings with loan sharks so a little research was necessary, a few clicks and I was ready to write.Since then, although I gave no personal details to anybody I have received a steady stream of …

Obama’s Lust For War Could Turn Out Very Badly For The West
For two years the great peacemaker and joybringer, Mr. Hopey Changey Man himself, Brack Hussein Obama has been trying to find a way to intervene in the Syrian civil war on the side of the anti Assad rebels and fanatical Islamic Jihadists without pissing off Russia and China too much.

Even the United Nations Knows Syrian Rebels Used Chemical Weapons So Why Is Obama Still Accusing Assad
Obama’s latest war is bogged down in Syria, in spite of the USA being supported by usual suspects, the United Kingdom and France the phalanx of Syrian allies which inclueds Russia, Iran and China looks a bit too formidable to persuade the limp wristed one it is safe to invade or start bombing. So all he has is a war of words, and he’s losing that.

Fear and Panic: how To Create Threats and Enemies
Fear and panic has always been one of the most potent weapons of tyrants and wannabe tyrants. But in an world lacking enemies how do the elitists of the New World Order create enough fear and panic to persuade populations to surrender freedom and live under a global totalitarian government?

Will Globalists Use North Korea To Trigger Global Catastrophe?
Whenever discussion over North Korea arises in Western circles, it always seems to be accompanied by a strange mixture of sensationalism and indifference. The mainstream media consistently presents the communist nation as an immediate threat to U.S. national security, conjuring an endless number of …

The Total Surveillance Society
Surveillance cameras, CCTV,electronic monitoring, data gathering from credit card use and other transactions, all are commonplace. When we start to hear talk of implanting RFID chips in human bodies or making a criminal offence of not carrying an official identity card when outside one’s home, we start to understand how sinister the surveillance industry has become and what threats it poses to our rights and liberties.

Peacemaker and Joybringer Launches Another War
He promised he would be the peacemaker, the great conciliator, the leader who would usher in a new post – conflict global age. And may believed him. Oh how they mocked when I predicted Barack Hussein Obama would be a warmonger, a divider and more than any of his predecessors they lackey of the globalist bankers who are pushing for a global totalitarian government.
