“Freedom Frenzy” Grips Zimbabwe, But What Happens Next?


President Robert Mugabe is under intense pressure to resign. But nothing has been heard from the 93-year-old since he appeared at a university graduation on Friday.
“We want to tell President Mugabe, it is time to rest,” Chipo tells us as she continues celebrating with her friends near Freedom Square. “This is a new Zimbabwe, and freedom has finally come,” she adds.
Such a public display of defiance against the president would have been unthinkable before the military intervention.
Crowds erupt into celebration at the sight of military vehicles and soldiers.
“They have given us our second independence,” shouts a man from a crowd surging towards an armoured personnel carrier.

The crowds sing songs praising the military and its chief, Gen Constantino Chiwenga. Some carry placards featuring the general’s portrait and that of the former Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was fired last week after a feud with First Lady Grace Mugabe.
Negotiations are going on behind the scenes to persuade President Mugabe to step down.
It is understood that he has insisted that he cannot do so and legitimise a coup.
The military maintains this is not a coup and there is international pressure to use constitutional means to resolve the political crisis. Negotiators are poring through Zimbabwe’s laws to find a legal way out.

From Black Agenda Report:

In a Facebook exchange with BAR contributor Ann Garrison yesterday David Van Wyk, a South African who lived more than a decade in Zimbabwe described Mugabe as having swing from left to right and back and forth over almost 40 years.

“Anything to remain in power. That does not mean that he was all bad. In the early days his interventions in health and education were very progressive. His interventions on the land question came far too late. His indiginisation program in mining also came too late…
“His first fifteen years he spent dancing to the tune of the West. That effectively deindustrialised the country and led to massive unemployment. The next fifteen years became very confused and possibly self serving, taking decisions that he thought would keep him in power. He did not allow for new leadership to emerge within the ruling party or within ZANUPF. Munangagwa (who is scheduled to formally assume Mugabe’s office any day now) is already 73 years old and one of the few remaining original ZANU leaders, but one of the least inspiring also. (Robert Mugabe’s wife) Grace also was bad news…”

 

“Zimbabwe could be far worse off than it is. In the whole continent only the governments of Eritrea and Zimbabwe have refused AFRICOM, and of course Somalia and Libya have no central governments. Mugabe is to be credited with keeping AFRICOM, its notorious solder to soldier relations and ubiquitous training, material and logistics support out of Zimbabwe. The Guardian depicts the Zimbabwean military as having broad and deep ties, an “all weather friendship” with China, which is making enormous investments throughout Africa. To the extent that this is true, we can expect the decades old campaign to isolate and vilify Zimbabwe to continue, and aid to the parties of Western puppets to flow.
But as Ajamu Baraka said, Zimbabwe is not Cuba. It’s not even Venezuela, where popular organizations and the army itself stepped in to restore Hugo Chavez against an attempted right wing coup. Despite some progress, ZANU-PF seems to have failed to use its four decades of state power to organize the handoff to the masses of its people the power to run their own economy, their own country. The fruits of ZANU-PF’s successes and failures will be reaped by its people.”

AND SOME INTERESTING (AND SLIGHTLY TONGUE IN CHEEK) SPECULATION FROM “THE SOUTH AFRICAN”:

Zimbabwe: Six possible outcomes of the coup that is not a coup:

So, what could realistically happen?
1. Mugabe resigns
After Maj Gen Sibusiso Moyo announced that the military had taken over in what is definitely not a coup (their words), he said Robert Mugabe will be addressing the nation – and will step aside. Obviously, that hasn’t happened and the rumour mill has been in overdrive since then. One moment he’s ready to hand it all over imminently, the next, he is refusing.
2. Mugabe goes nowhere
Mugabe himself as reportedly said he remains the president and the military has continued to refer to him as such. The military insists that the aim of military muscle was to “root out criminals around him” so chances are he could stay on. Since one of those “criminals” might be his wife, Gucci Grace, the situation is, erm, delicate. Elections are due to take place next year, so who knows?
3. Elections
South Africa’s Democratic Alliance called for this as a solution. With Morgan Tsvangirai returning to the country after visiting South Africa for cancer treatment, this is being touted as an option by some experts. Indeed, at a press conference on Thursday, Tsvangirai urged “each and every Zimbabwean” to turn out and vote during elections. We assumed he was talking about next year, but…. who knows. A government of national unity will be established in the interim.
4. Emmerson Mnangagwa takes over
Zanu-PF does not want to lose power and many have suggested what is currently unfolding is only an internal party power struggle. Mnangagwa isn’t exactly going to bring a new dawn.
5. Counter coup!
The Presidential Guard, although part of the military, remains very loyal to Mugabe. This is probably the least likely outcome of the lot, but don’t hey, we live in crazy times.
6. Exile
This could happen with all of the above (except number two) scenarios. If Zanu-PF cannot get its house in order, the Mugabes might be forced into exile. The Economic Freedom Fighters have already called for political asylum to be granted to the family, but it could make this a bit awks for Grace after the whole alleged assault and diplomatic immunity situation.
Bonus scenario: Donald Trump and Kim-jong un begin nuclear war
And everyone forgets about Zimbabwe again.
Extra bonus: We find out “Mugabe” is actually a body double
Look, there are some wild conspiracies out there and this some of them – Mugabe actually died years ago and the guy in charge is just a lookalike.

Zimbabwe: Six possible outcomes of the coup that is not a coup

The Human Target – Directed Energy Weapons and Electronic Warfare

October 25, 2017
By Suzanne Maher
The Human Target – Directed Energy Weapons and Electronic Warfare
A subject that is getting more and more attention from people all over the world is deliberate electromagnetic targeting of people.  A neural rape or assault on people’s bodies and brains developed from classified military technology.  More often now, people are valiantly speaking out about being a “Targeted Individual”.

control
This is a subject that has not surprisingly received little to no attention from the corporate owned media. It is disconcerting enough that the world is now saturated in dangerous elf/ulf/vlf/rf/  and so many other types of frequency waves which permeate our bodily tissues causing serious degradation of our health.  There is also a Military Intelligence Program that is gaining world wide recognition which uses these “smart grid” frequencies to target individuals.
Electronic Warfare and the Targeted Individual
Electronic warfare is defined as any military action involving the use of electromagnetic and directed energy to control the electromagnetic spectrum to attack the enemy. The Navy calls this “electromagnetic battle management”. Who would  that enemy combatant be; a person or persons that is seen as so seemingly dangerous or threatening to the power structure?
That enemy would be you and I….
For those unfamiliar with the term “TI or Targeted Individuals”, it is important to note there are different methodologies that the functionaries or agents apply to targeted individuals carried out by various government programs or agency initiatives.  This article discusses individuals targeted by; remote neural monitoring, mind control,  brain mapping, gang stalking, implants, voice to skull technology (V2K) which beams frequencies into the head, and nervous system manipulation 24 hours a day.  Targeting can be covert, or overt.
This classified technology has been created by governments and military and used on its own citizens. Helpless citizens which have been victimized by BILLION DOLLAR government funded technology designed for quiet wars, to create harm. What the powers that be are looking for is RESPONSES, which they can track, measure and log.  This in effect, is an omnipresent electromagnetic gulag in the privacy of your own home, workplace, or streets.
Funding for many experiments has been provided by the United States Government, particularly the United States Military, the Central Intelligence Agencies and private corporations involved with military activities. These human research programs have been highly secretive, and in many cases information about them was not released until many years after the studies had been performed. After the incidents are exposed, the standing President is trotted out to issue a counterfeit apology, as if apologies somehow make up for the destruction of lives.
Targeting can be done by radio-frequency weapons, high powered microwave technology and acoustic technology.  These are deliberately orchestrated attacks and TI’s will suffer from these assaults even when exposure to frequencies are reduced. Some TI’s report that the constant barrage of electromagnetic radiation also brings with it multiple chemical sensitivity.
Unethical human experimentation has been conducted on citizen  for decades, and we have seen large swaths of the population being subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment, often the sick and vulnerable and economically depressed.
One example of  this unethical government research was the classified human radiation experiments conducted on over 4,000 innocent American citizens during the Cold War.   These and a number of other clandestine human experiments are discussed in this article by  By Alan R. Cantwell Jr., M.D.
THE HUMAN RADIATION EXPERIMENTS —  How scientists secretly used U.S. citizens as guinea pigs during the Cold War
http://whale.to/a/cantwell9.html
The elites have their warfare covered,  microwave targeting is one more assault on our individual person hood. Mutagenics, transgenics, epigenetics, endocrine disrupters, free radical and radiation damage. When we now look at our world we see the multi pronged attack of the chemical spraying of our skies, genetically modified food stuffs, vaccines, fluoride and “microwave targeting of peoples”.
Our bodies and brains may be accessed to harass and torment us in  the New World Order and Smart Grid Infrastructure.  We the people are guinea pigs of technology and test subjects for many government experiments.
Project Pandora is an early example of a U.S. Government microwave experiment on animals from 1965 to 1970;
http://www.topsecretwriters.com/2013/09/project-pandora-and-us-government-microwave-experiments-on-animals/
The use of hidden directives such as ‘DOD Directive 5240.1-r – Procedure 13 Human Experimentation for Intelligence Purposes’ allows for the testing and evaluation of any technology on any U.S. Person and those foreigners living on U.S. soil. This ‘directive not law’ has been unethically and inhumanly passed from agency to agency and contractor to contractor resulting in TORTURE TESTING ON HUMAN BEINGS (defined as U.S. Persons).
Anyone who is part of the new media, the truther movement, or a front line activist, will most likely have experienced some kind of targeting.  The general population at large is also subjected to microwave targeting.
We all have been sprayed with micro processors, micro sensors, nano bots, smart dust, etc., from the chemical engineering of our skies and the manipulation of our weather.  Nano is a Greek word which means “Dwarf”.  A nanometer is a billionth of a meter and this tech is so  small it can fit inside a blood vessel, our bodies and brains have no firewall against this nano technology .  It is simply a matter of “activating or turning on” the Program that has been implanted in our bodies with the use of frequencies or DEW’s. We are all vulnerable to this type of attack and some TI’s have had implants show up in various scans and x-rays.  Implants are capable of transmitting voice signals, high voltage pulses, emitting a small tracking beacon signal, or other unspecified uses.

Human Target

This technology which is networking inside us, is the Program which allows the powers that be to have full scale access to our brains and our bodies to manipulate as they wish. This is the New World Order System of Artificial Intelligence, Smart Grid Infrastructure and The Internet of Things. The engine the world is now running on is derived on the premise of “keeping the Program in tact”.  Attempting to separate us from consciousness and severing our neural network.
With the advent of 5G technology, microwave radiation will be increased exponentially using small millimeter waves small cell deployment. This could mean wireless antennas on every lamp post, utility pole, home and business throughout entire neighborhoods, towns and cities   It does this by using largely untapped bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, as well as some lower and mid-range frequencies. GHz is a unit of frequency equal to one billion hertz.  Humans oscillate at approximately 7.83 hertz otherwise known as the Schumann Resonance.  Since our bodies resonate at a very low hertz, they simply cannot handle the inundation of this microwave technology. A bodily inferno created by an unregulated, unapproved, lay it down everywhere tech. Moreover, with this updated 5G tech,  it will allow the Program now being activated in our bodies to take on a much more aggressive role, because the AI feeds off these frequencies.
Dangers to the human brain and body from electromagnetic radiation are immeasurable, the scale is so large. Dr. Elizabeth Plourde of  emffreedom.com says that; “We can  liken this assault to being machine gunned.  All of our cells are getting holes and leaking, our blood brain barrier is getting holes and leaking and our gut is leaking. “
Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health
https://www.aaemonline.org/emf_rf_position.php
Artificial Intelligence and Mind Control
The Artificial Intelligence Program can and will induce anything it wishes. It can be a disease, emotional distress, brain targeting, genital targeting.  Our moods and emotions are being manipulated and controlled through Artificial Intelligence and work in concert with these frequencies.
Ask yourself when you feel lower vibratory emotions of; disgust, fear, anger, violence, sexual thoughts, jealousy, etc., are these my own emotions, or implanted emotions through these frequencies and the AI technology?
The frequency hit will induce a physiological, emotional, physical response, attacking brain waves. Unless people know about Targeted Individuals and the Artificial Intelligence Program, they will not understand these invasions. The Artificial Intelligence is overriding us and our cellular matrix. The program can do virtually anything it wishes.
Mind control is a frequent  report from targeted individuals. Torture is also a frequent report from TI’s. Many tactics and means are employed.  There are a number of ways to target individuals; electronic telepathy, microwaves and electromagnetics, holography, lasers, radio frequency energy beams, satellites, and radar to name some. Targeting of people in this manner using directed energy weapons will prompt extreme distress and may lead to get them diagnosed as schizophrenics so they will be marginalized and maligned by friends, family and community.
One well known individual targeted with directed energy weapons is Dr. Katherine Horton;
https://vid.me/TfySn

This is silent, encroaching warfare, dripping like a slow running faucet, and many find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that it actually exists and our governments would be criminal enough to use it against populations. This experimental warfare is done under the cloak of National Security, which is always a cover for plausible deniability.
Elana Freeland, author and researcher of the book “Chemtrails, HAARP and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth” has in depth knowledge on the subject of targeted individuals.  She personally knows a number of TI’s and also ghost writes for some.
Freeland discusses in her very detailed essay Directed Energy Weapons For Political Control, in Nexus Magazine, “The Non-Lethal’s” You Don’t Hear About, and says this; “Then there are the EM weapons that are even less public because they are used covertly for political control in quiet war against populations, dissidents and individuals displeasing to various powers that be.  Examples include laser systems (free electron, x-ray, neutral particle beam, chemical oxygen iodine, mid-infrared advanced chemical laser, etc.) delivering blurred vision and holograms, ion-beam plasma and augmented reality mind control delivered by satellites that first track targets via their bio-energetic signatures and then couples plasma with their EM fields; and of course non aural carriers that directly induce silent, subliminal messages into the brain, often known as voice to skull (V2K) or synthetic telepathy.  In line with Cold War secrecy and deceit, thousands of non consensual human subjects have been used for target practice of weaponized electromagnetics.”
Freeland goes on to say; “In homes and walls, offices across the nation millimeter wave scanners are penetrating walls, looking for target brains for microwave transmitters to beam specific mood inducing excitation potentials into. Other people in the room will be oblivious to the fact that an excitation potential for suicide or murder is resetting the brain of their friend or relative for depression or rage.  (This technology may have been behind the “suicides” of political activist Abbie Hoffman, singer Kurt Cobain, journalist Gary Web, etc., etc.,”)
U.S. Patents also attest that the capability is there to target individuals with frequencies;
Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors

“Voice to Skull” Microwave Device – U.S. Patent 4,877,027
Thank you to Clyde Lewis of Ground Zero for this photo depicting how Voice to Skull Microwave is used

Target Human

Extremely low frequencies and microwaves can cause agitation in humans and these frequencies have been known to cause serious illness and eventual death. Moreover,  mind control through sound wave technology would be the ultimate non-lethal weapon; stealth warfare. Remember, this experimentation is to log, monitor, track and assess an individual’s response to this electronic harassment.  The Orwellian Nightmare come to fruition.
It’s clear that we have a shadow government that is puppeteering  this psychotronic fantasy. In a book written by Zbigniew Brzezinski (co-founder of the Trilateral Commission), entitled Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technotronic Era published in 1970, he writes;  “Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, “I foresee a time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.”
The elites and their minions have been marching to the beat of their “Brave New World” for decades.

Ellen Brown: How To Wipe Out Puerto Rico’s Debt Without Hurting Bondholders

Puerto Fico Debt

How to Wipe Out Puerto Rico’s Debt Without Hurting Bondholders

During his visit to hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump shocked the bond market when he told Geraldo Rivera of Fox News that he was going to wipe out the island’s bond debt. He said on October 3rd:

You know they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street. We’re gonna have to wipe that out. That’s gonna have to be — you know, you can say goodbye to that. I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave good-bye to that.

How did the president plan to pull this off? Pam Martens and Russ Martens, writing in Wall Street on Parade, note that the U.S. municipal bond market holds $3.8 trillion in debt, and it is not just owned by Wall Street banks. Mom and pop retail investors are exposed to billions of dollars of potential losses through their holdings of Puerto Rican municipal bonds, either directly or in mutual funds. Wiping out Puerto Rico’s debt, they warned, could undermine confidence in the municipal bond market, causing bond interest rates to rise, imposing an additional burden on already-struggling states and municipalities across the country.

True, but the president was just pointing out the obvious. As economist Michael Hudson says, “Debts that can’t be paid won’t be paid.” Puerto Rico is bankrupt, its economy destroyed. In fact it is currently in bankruptcy proceedings with its creditors. Which suggests its time for some more out-of-the-box thinking . . . .

Turning Disaster into a Win-Win

In July 2016, a solution to this conundrum was suggested by the notorious Goldman Sachs itself, when mom and pop investors holding the bonds of bankrupt Italian banks were in jeopardy. Imposing losses on retail bondholders had proven to be politically toxic, after one man committed suicide. Some other solution had to be found.

Italy’s non-performing loans (NPLs) then stood at €210bn, at a time when the ECB was buying €120bn per year of outstanding Italian government bonds as part of its QE program. The July 2016 Financial Times quoted Goldman’s Francesco Garzarelli, who said, “by the time QE is over – not sooner than end 2017, on our baseline scenario – around a fifth of Italy’s public debt will be sitting on the Bank of Italy’s balance sheet.”

His solution: rather than buying Italian government bonds in its quantitative easing program, the European Central Bank could simply buy the insolvent banks’ NPLs. Bringing the entire net stock of bad loans onto the government’s balance sheet, he said, would be equivalent to just nine months’ worth of Italian government bond purchases by the ECB.

Puerto Rico’s debt is only $73 billion, one third the Italian debt. The Fed has stopped its quantitative easing program, but in its last round (called “QE3”), it was buying $85 billion per month in securities. At that rate, it would have to fire up the digital printing presses for only one additional month to rescue the suffering Puerto Ricans without hurting bondholders at all. It could then just leave the bonds on its books, declaring a moratorium at least until Puerto Rico got back on its feet, and better yet, indefinitely.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs data, 33,000 US jobs were lost in September, the first time the country has had a negative figure since 2010. It could be time for a bit more economic stimulus from the Fed.

Successful Precedent

Shifting the debt burden of bankrupt institutions onto the books of the central bank is not a new or radical idea. UK Prof. Richard Werner, who invented the term “quantitative easing” when he was advising the Japanese in the 1990s, says there is ample precedent for it. In 2012, he proposed a similar solution to the European banking crisis, citing three successful historical examples.

One was in Britain in 1914, when the British banking sector collapsed after the government declared war on Germany. This was not a good time for a banking crisis, so the Bank of England simply bought the banks’ NPLs. “There was no credit crunch,” wrote Werner, “and no recession. The problem was solved at zero cost to the tax payer.”

For a second example, he cited the Japanese banking crisis of 1945. The banks had totally collapsed, with NPLs that amounted to virtually 100 percent of their assets:

But in 1945 the Bank of Japan had no interest in creating a banking crisis and a credit crunch recession. Instead it wanted to ensure that bank credit would flow again, delivering economic growth. So the Bank of Japan bought the non-performing assets from the banks – not at market value (close to zero), but significantly above market value.

Werner’s third example was the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program, in which it bought $1.7 trillion in mortgage-backed securities from the banks. These securities were widely understood to be “toxic” – Wall Street’s own burden of NPLs. Again the move worked: the banks did not collapse, the economy got back on its feet, and the much-feared inflation did not result.

In each of these cases, he wrote:

The operations were a complete success. No inflation resulted. The currency did not weaken. Despite massive non-performing assets wiping out the solvency and equity of the banking sector, the banks’ health was quickly restored. In the UK and Japanese case, bank credit started to recover quickly, so that there was virtually no recession at all as a result.

The Moral Hazard Question

One objection to this approach is the risk of “moral hazard”: lenders who know they will be rescued from their bad loans will recklessly make even more. That is the argument, but an analysis of data in China, where NPLs are now a significant problem, has relieved those concerns. China’s NPLs are largely being left on the banks’ books without writing them down. The concern is that shrinking the banks’ balance sheets in an economy that is already slowing will reduce their ability to create credit, further slowing growth and triggering a downward economic spiral. As for the moral hazard problem, when researchers analyzed the data, they found that the level of Chinese NPLs did not affect loan creation, in small or large banks.

But if Puerto Rico got relief from the Fed, wouldn’t cities and states struggling with their own debt burdens want it too? Perhaps, but that bar could be set in bankruptcy court. Few cities or states can match the devastation of Puerto Rico, which was already in bankruptcy court when struck by hurricanes that left virtually no tree unscathed and literally flattened the territory.

Arguably, the Fed should be making nearly-interest-free loans to cities and states, allowing them to rebuild their crumbling infrastructure at reasonable cost. That argument was made in an October 2012 editorial in The New York Times titled “Getting More Bang for the Fed’s Buck”. It was also suggested by Martin Hutchinson in Reuters in October 2010:

An alternative mechanism could be an extension of the Fed’s [QE] asset purchases to include state and municipal bonds. Currently the central bank does not have the power to do this for maturities of more than six months. But an approving Congress could remove that hurdle at a stroke . . . .

The Fed lent $29 trillion to Wall Street banks virtually interest-free. It could do the same for local governments.

Where There’s a Will

When central banks want to save bankrupt institutions without cost to the government or the people, they obviously know how to do it. It is a matter of boldness and political will, something that may be lacking in our central bankers but has been amply demonstrated in our president.

If the Fed resists the QE alternative, here is another possibility: Congress can audit the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Defense, and retrieve some of the $21 trillion gone missing from their accountings. This massive black money hole, tracked by Dr. Mark Skidmore and Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of HUD, is buried on the agencies’ books as “undocumented adjustments” – entries inserted without receipts or other documentary support just to balance the books. It represents money that rightfully belongs to the American people.

If our legislators and central bankers can find trillions of dollars to bail out Wall Street banks, while overlooking trillions more lost to the DoD and HUD in “undocumented adjustments,” they can find the money to help an American territory suffering the worst humanitarian crisis in its history.

The UK: “Extricating Itself From The EU Pig Trough” by G Squared

UK EUThe UK needs to protect and care for its own people. It has taken the first step, by extricating itself from The EU Pig Trough and Cesspit. The second stage is to evict and deny all blackmails: American.
Polaris was an idiocy, and financial devastation visited on The UK. Neither Russia nor China have ever had inclinations to nuke The UK. Did they ever attempt? Where they deterred?  What has The UK got that anyone wants, Geo-Strategic or otherwise,
even when America had parked its Nuclear Missile Systems there? What was the purpose? Because ‘Experts’, Apparatchiks, and the bought- and- blackmailed, said so? Or was The UK the great protector of The West?  Go back to the pivotal point of Potsdam, and what preceded it.
The Deterrent has not ‘Saved’ The UK to date; it has destroyed it. Russia has, in recent years, fought wars in Georgia (twice), and Chechnya (three times). It has also intervened in South Ossetia, Belarus, and Crimea. The deluded and destroyed of Ukraine are left to their chosen ideological inducements and romances. They have the option of moving across to The Russian Protection Zone of Dombass.
Russia and China stood mute when America was selling the prosecution of both the Korean and Vietnam Wars to The UN. Why would that be? Did either stand to advise that Iraq had no WMDs? War bankrupted America.
It needs to be remembered that the statistics of military strengths and capabailities postured around the net are false. There are no ‘authorities’ counting heads and weapons systems. And no powers honour the accounting of treaties. Russia and China downplay their numbers.
If The UN searches for WMDs in Iraq, The US cannot find Dimona, or locate Cosmodromes (Kettering), it is unlikely that Russian capabilities would be known. And certainly not The Second Strike Capabilities. All military rhetoric of one-upmanship needs to be denied. Only true history is reality.

Meanwhile America, clinging to illusions of essential propaganda, manufactures above its realities. It includes disarmed ships languishing in ports with no crews. Aircraft and armoured vehicles parked in the deserts of the southern states, a missile system that is admitted as non functional, satellites that do not exist, and an inability to even fly to low earth orbit (the great Moon walkers of a half century ago).
The Russian Space Agency is servicing The ISS. Even during The Great Obama Sanctions Serenades. How else was the goose to react. He allowed America in its delerium to march into dark alleys, and received NYET to its preposterous demands.
Work from real history. Not the incessant lies and distortions touted as the deeply flawed soluble version.

NO: the ‘Leaders’ are not better informed.

NO: the great intel to which they are privy is historically verifiable garbage. They are captured by the lies, and become the destructive manifestations and functionaries of those captures.
As far as the morose argument of Deterrent is concerned, China would be marching through Russia, which would never occur, and if The UK ever thought it could deter The Bear, if it decided to march through Europe, what nuking was The UK going to do:
The cities The Bear occupied, or its structured journeys to those cities? Or perhaps Russia itself? How many warheads are at issue? How many would get through? Would Russia not factor in such an equation? And what would bring The Bear to march? The sausages of Berlin? The croissants of Paris?
The Oder-Neisse was a protective buffer zone. The Cold War was an American Construct. Russia has since learnt not to respond.
Rosneft, the leading world oil conglomerate, has appointed former German Chancellor (The Social Democrats and The Greens), Gerhard Schroeder, to chair its board. So if Russia supplies oil and gas throughout Europe, to its chosen clients, and receives commodities and manufactured goods as payment, what went wrong with the Sanctions and the Petro-Dollar: Did we miss something here?
The biggest consumer of oil in the world is The US Military. Second to that is The US Domestic Economy. Obama’s “force downs” of barrel prices; OPEC production reductions; interference to slow delivery, and increase the costs of Canadian Oil Sands and Bakken Crudes, and exclusion of American explorations leading to denial of The Tupi, Venezuelan and Cuban Fields, all damaged America and no one else.
Trump’s recent UNGA waffle script listed grievance states concerned with the American addiction to oil. The prior GWB waffle concerned the Military Industrial Complex and the capture of the American Economy. Trump’s abilities to move the captured America to a sound and rational based economy, is fading.
If Russia already Owns Europe and China already Owns Asia Pacific, someone should inform the self-appointed world policeman. Sitting in the corner with fingers in ears, singing “La La La La La La” is not a connection with the real world.
The question is not if deterrence is a gross idiocy, (with well founded historic proof), but how deep that stupidity runs.
The entire Deterrent Scenario concerning Western Europe is as insane as any other impeccably and rigorously theorised, expertised scenario, sprouting from the minds of the lofty American intellectualised Ivy League elite.
I am grateful, having been privileged to have been educated in The Old English System. Before the insane, progessive, and intellectualised, Comprehensive, Common Core, and Wyndham stultifications.
And of course the natural progressions that would flow from those great advances, delivering the gross retardations that we suffer about us, on a daily basis.
The UK has wasted hundreds of billions of pounds chasing American induced madnesses that have virtually also bankrupted The UK. Money that would have been better spent on maintaining a sovereignty and self-sufficiency with legitimate essential trading.
The UK has four submarines capable of delivering Trident. Because of the idiocy of that pretend weapons system, only one of the four can be in the Atlantic and armed at any time. The other three are permanently in a cycle; to repair; in repair; or from it.
That one submarine, effectively, supposedly guarding America’s Atlantic end, is on the first strike list of all and sundry. As are America’s Information Systems, and America’s extensive fault lines and volcanos. And you thought it would be a missile on missile war at first instance?
American Carrier Groups can’t possibly remain silent and disappear. They will launch fighters and bombers. The survivors of each Mission Round having no where to land on return. And of course far flung bases (600 around the world), denied Information, are very easy targets. Floating in voids such as The USS Donald Cook and Porter. Denied weapons capabilities such as The USS Ross and The UK Trident Platform (Florida Test). Or having ‘Stealthness’ exposed as the naked emperor (The USS Virginia, The Kosovo War).
From The Battle of Berlin to the present, Russia (USSR), drew its lines in the sand, and the West dared not breach them.
Russia sweeping Europe after The Battle of Stalingrad, and moving into The Battle of Berlin, is one of the greatest events of World History. The unconditional surrender of America and The West, along with the by-then non-existent Axis, was etched in history at Potsdam.
America and its sucklings failed in the Bolshevik Revolution; WWII; The Cold War; The China Policy; The Domino Theory; The USSR-Russia Transition, to the present.
What has Propagandised Retardation not delivered to the well informed, highly educated, discerning, professional dross of the insular brigades. Carrying the extensive baggage of induced paranoia, prejudice, and naivette, is such an onerous responsibility. As well as the retirement of the unaligned; Rational and Critical Thought Processes; not conducive to the absorbed, fashionable, socially and morally correct and responsible, derangement by Intellectualised self-Retardation.
The stupidity continues. Trident, which is effectively a dud (The failed Florida Test), is now due for an upgrade. After seventeen years of the current insane version; The UK by its minority Tory Party and its pathetic May, are preparing to sign off on the latest version of the toy. Cameron has run from the room.
There are breaks in The Tory ranks, and its DUP essential coalition partner, has not been correctly sounded. The blackmailing DUP will get its pound at every turn. And of course Labour sees a reality and a better expenditure; The People of The UK. The SNP will give no support. They already chased out Anglo-American Atomic Waste Storage and Processing.
The monumental imbecile Howard: When Australian PM relieved Scotland’s problem, and moved everything to South Australia, he just forgot to mention it to The People of Australia. They might object, as they did to his attempt to change The Australian Constitution; The GST; The Australia Card Identification System; Retrospective Legislation; Disarmament; Performing as a demented puppet to every American wish; abandoning innocent Australians captured in foreign legal maizes; and bankrupting and fire-selling Australia through an economic incompetence never seen before in Australia’s history. Apart from overseeing the perpetration of False Flags and Hoaxes, that made thinking Australians cringe.
Russia missiles ISISThe UK May agenda is to spend an announced £20 billion to upgrade Trident. With a little add-on of some £4.5 billion for 4 new submarines. And we know how American Military Industrial Complex estimates are full, complete, accurate, and on budget!
To muddy the water for the various retard herds, a choice of three systems is postured. The reality is that none are needed, but Trident has again been decided and bribed in.
The pretend contenders are: The Mirage 2000 NK2; The AGM-129-ACM; and The Trident II D5 (upgrade) quoted above. All these have the same contractor names and patterns. Russia and China already hold the overrides. And the platform submarines are on first strike.
To view the trillion pounds pissed away by The UK on its useless militarism, as a grand American suckling, since the end of WWII to date is tragic.
Britain squandered its empire, then its sovereignty. Now in a final stand to take back its sovereignty; it’s captured, useless, meaningless, token, and blackmailed, pretend administration, and longterm bought apparatchiks, want to further attempt to drown the already terminally damaged people of The UK.
The World has moved on from Shooting Wars to Economic Wars. Those late in leaving the former for the latter will not be granted an advanced standing.

Vegas shooting: real vs. fake, By Jon Rappoport

Vegas shooting: real vs. fake
by Jon Rappoport
October 6, 2017
These are a few observations leading to a hypothesis.
First, there is a video, taken at ground level, of a man going from victim to victim lying on the ground at the concert. He is checking their pulses, asking if they’re all right, calling for medical help. Notice the color of the blood on the ground and on the victims. It is a quite bright red. Would real bloodstains on the ground be that color, or would they be darker?

https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=deb_1507066797

Next, there is the matter of how Stephen Paddock, the accused shooter, brought 23 weapons and ammo into the Mandalay Hotel and up to his suite.
He was a well-known high-stakes gambler. Hotel personnel surely knew him. They knew he lived in the Vegas area. Yet there he is with a number of suitcases—or over the course of a few days, he appears in the lobby with another suitcase or two each time.
These hotels are security-conscious to the max. No suspicion was aroused? And Paddock risked exposure to take weapons he would never use up to his suite?
Did Paddock bring in the weapons through another hotel entrance with the help of staff? Was this part of the operation an inside job?
Did he actually bring in all these weapons? Or was his hotel suite staged as a prop by others? Was it set up as a showcase for gun-control advocates who, after the fact, would push for new restrictive laws?
The photos of the hotel suite—when were they taken? In the immediate aftermath of the shooting? Where are the hundreds or thousands of shell casings that would have been ejected from the weapon(s)? The photos of the floor show very little brass. My understanding is these casings would have been quite hot. Where are all the burn marks on the carpet and furniture and walls?
This whole “hotel suite” scenario is very murky and needs much more investigation.
There are cell-phone videos taken at ground level at the concert, while you can hear automatic gunfire. A reader brings up an interesting point. Many of these shots would miss human targets. Instead, they would hit solid objects and either remain embedded or bounce. Where are the loud sounds, on the videos, of ricochets—not just a few sounds, but many.
Now here is a hypothesis. Obviously, it applies to more than just the Vegas shooting. In SOME of these events, we see a MIX of fake and real happenings. There are real victims and fake victims. This confusion and conflation of the fake and the real stimulate different and opposing lines of independent investigation.
Some say all the victims are fake. Others say all the victims are real. Both viewpoints tend to generalize from a few sets of facts.
The result? This is perfect for those who are actually behind the operation in the shadows, who want to engender false trails and dead ends and “unsolvable” anomalies.
And conflict among independent researchers who, after all, are the only real threat to the party line.
“Look, here is a group of obvious crisis actors. They’re fakes. Therefore, the whole event is a fake.”
“Here are real victims. Therefore, the whole event is real. There was nothing fake about it.”
Then, on top of this, the mainstream press, in its usual fashion, cherry picks the most far-out “conspiracy theories,” presents them, and says: “Look how ridiculous ALL these people are who question the official investigation.” Another generalization. A way to discredit all independent researchers.
When you think about it, the hypothesis I’m presenting is not strange at all. What do major media news broadcasts do? They mix real facts and fake facts. This is SOP. They mix and stir and derive bizarre conclusions that mislead the public.
“Real or fake” is not always the correct formulation, although that is what many people want to decide. “It must be black or white, yes or no, this or that.” We’re looking at a trap, we’re looking at many minds disposed to function in this fashion.
In certain cases, it can be “real and fake.”
And when it is, and when it’s intentional, it confuses people and they throw up their hands and walk away.
Which is the desired effect.
“Was the whole thing real or fake? I have to know.”
It was both.

Comment: Peters wants utu (Revenge) over Joyce’s attacks

Winston Peters Utu

Patrick Gower – Newshub – Tuesday, 26 September 2017

Winston Peters could be out for revenge against National over their attempts to take him down during the campaign.
A New Zealand First source has told Newshub Peters is particularly resentful towards Steven Joyce, whom he personally detests.
Peters believes Joyce orchestrated a four-pronged attack against him by National:
Steal NZ First policies

The first prong was to steal policies and ideas from Peters, or suggest ones which would appeal to his voters.
Those were things like bootcamps for young serious offenders, getting tough on gangs, sanctions against beneficiaries who fail certain criteria such as drug tests, and the 110km/h speed limit.
Squash his party vote

The second prong was to squash his party vote. The idea was to boost National’s popularity, while forcing Peters’ head below the 5 percent threshold.
They did boost their own votes, but failed to force him under 5 percent.
Drive him out of Northland

With the third prong, drive him out of Northland, they ran a successful, gloves-off campaign with Matt King. He beat Peters to become the local MP.
The aim of this was to take away Peters’ security net to get into Parliament. It actually worked but because he had that party vote, he was safe.
Drop a scandal on him

And last but not least: Peters believes National dropped a scandal on him.
His pension over-payment was leaked to the media. It hit him hard but didn’t knock him down.
Now he wants utu – revenge.

The Newshub tip-off
The tip was given to Newshub on the Friday six weeks out from the election just as National was undertaking its co-ordinated attack on Winston Peters.
It was an anonymous phone call, from a blocked number, from a man who knew lots of details.
It could have been a public servant.
But investigations by the Ministry of Social Development, Inland Revenue and Ministerial Services, which manages staff in the Beehive, have all failed to find the leaker.
That leaves a senior crew as suspects – two ministers, Anne Tolley and Paula Bennett, as well as the Prime Minister’s chief-of-staff Wayne Eagleson.
Winston Peters’ second National victim
Paula Bennett has been upfront about the fact she won’t be Deputy Prime Minister any more.
She follows David Carter, who has to give up being Speaker because Peters hates him and won’t countenance it.
Will Peters claim another scalp?
There is talk that Winston Peters wants another scalp if he is to do business with National. It could be Nick Smith. Or it could be Steven Joyce – Peters may be hinting that Joyce is unacceptable as Finance Minister?
NZ First similarities with Labour-Greens
The sources inside NZ First have directed me today to a number of speeches Winston made recently in which his approach to the economy is much more aligned with Labour and the Greens than it is with National.
This is all a clear play by NZ First to get the message out there that it’s not a done deal with National, and they’re deliberately getting the message out to raise the stakes in the negotiations.
Tomorrow, we see the man himself. Winston Peters is set to front up at Parliament and all the political positioning will simply go next level.
So National might be smiling on the outside – but they are full of fear, waiting and wondering if Peters’ utu is about to strike.

Agenda 2030: “Tapping into the savings of citizens”

UN Chief To Reshape Global Finance For Sustainable Development

Danger: The Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, said that “trillions of dollars need to be mobilized a year by tapping into the savings of citizens around the world…” The financing fix for Sustainable Development is revealed: simply take it from citizens’ saving accounts. Actually, if Sustainable Development is completely established in place of Capitalism/Free Enterprise, private property (including savings) will be wiped out anyway.  TN Editor

As the high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly gets underway, Secretary-General António Guterres today stressed the role of the UN to help reshape “unproductive and unrewarding” finance and redirect investment to creating a better world for all.

“The choices we make on finance will be critical,” Mr. Guterres told a special event held at the UN Headquarters in New York on financing for global development goals.

Mr. Guterres noted that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – adopted by UN Member States in September 2015 – are a blueprint for building an inclusive, sustainable fair globalization.

“We can choose to bemoan the lack of financing for the 2030 Agenda in a world awash with so much unproductive and unrewarding finance. Or we can grasp the opportunity to reshape finance, according to our urgent, collective needs,” he said. “The choice is clear. Let us invest in the 2030 Agenda and finance a better world for all.”

However, today’s global financial system, which manages some $300 trillion in financial assets, is simply not fit for purpose, the UN chief said, recalling that the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, adopted in 2015 at an international conference in the Ethiopian capital on financing for development, highlights the importance of being innovative in leveraging resources and financing for development.

The UN’s three-part strategy for enhancing its support to financing the 2030 Agenda would help achieve short- and medium-term results, he said.

The Secretary-General said that he will lead UN efforts to ensure that the objectives of the 2030 Agenda are fully reflected in international economic and financial policies by working closely with key inter-governmental platforms, such as the G20.

Second, he will reform the UN development system to strengthen its country teams, and third, he will champion key international initiatives that can harness large-scale changes in financing and financial system development, such as in the fields of digitalization and climate finance and in cooperating with major investment initiatives.

Also addressing the event was Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, who said that trillions of dollars need to be mobilized a year by tapping into the savings of citizens around the world, official development assistance (ODA), domestic financing and the world’s financial system.

The UN has always been engaged in this financing agenda, with its partners, allies and of course Member States, but “our question is whether we are doing enough, and the answer, in short, is no,” she said, explaining that this event is timely as it highlights progress and opportunities from parts of the UN’s leadership team, key partners such as the World Bank, private sector actors, and Member States.

An Economic Lesson for China and Russia, by Paul Craig Roberts

An Economic Lesson for China and Russia
Paul Craig Roberts

 

 

Economic lesson Russia china
Is there anyone in Trump’s government who is not an imbecile?
After years of endless military threats against Russia—remember CIA deputy director Mike Morell saying on TV (Charlie Rose show) that the US should start killing Russians to give them a message, and Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley threatening “We’ll beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before”—now the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin threatens China. If China doesn’t abide by Washington’s new sanctions on North Korea, Mnuchin said the US “will put additional sanctions on them [China] and prevent them from accessing the US and international dollar system.”
https://www.rt.com/usa/403118-usa-china-sanctions-north-korea/
Here is the broke US government $20 trillion in public debt, having to print money with which to buy its own bonds, threatening the second largest economy in the world, an economy on purchasing power parity terms that is larger than the US economy.Mnuchin threatens China
Take a moment to think about Mnuchin’s threat to China. How many US firms are located in China? It is not only Apple and Nike. Would sanctions on China mean that the US firms could not sell their Chinese made products in the US or anywhere outside China? Do you think the global US corporations would stand for this?
What if China responded by nationalizing all US factories and all Western owned banks in China and Hong Kong? China US economy

Mnuchin is like the imbecile Nikki Haley. He doesn’t know who he is threatening.
Consider Mnuchin’s threat to exclude China from the international dollar system. Nothing could do more harm to the US and more good to China. A huge amount of economic transactions would simply exit the dollar system, reducing its scope and importance. Most importantly, it would finally dawn on the Chinese and Russian governments that being a part of the dollar system is a massive liability with no benefits. Russia and China should years ago have created their own system. Being part of Washington’s system simply lets Washington make threats and impose sanctions.
The reason Russia and China are blind to this is that they foolishly sent students to the US to study economics. These students returned completely brainwashed with neoliberal economics, “junk economics” in Michael Hudson’s term. This American economics makes Russian and Chinese economists de facto American stooges. They support policies that serve Washington instead of their own countries.
If China and Russia want to be sovereign countries, they must pray that the imbecile Mnuchin does cut them off from the dollar system that exploits them. Then Russia and China will have to put in place their own system and learn real economics instead of propaganda posing as economics that serves Washington’s interest.
