We lie, we cheat we steal: inept neocon nuts try to force Trump into war in Iran and Venezuela

“I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.”  ― Harry S. Truman

“I was a CIA director, we lied, we cheated we stole… Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

 

America is being run by a CIA Shadow Government that has bankrupted our once great country through wars for profit and terrorist acts across the globe.  While Donald J. Trump occupies the White House as the leader of the free world, it is beginning to become more and more evident that the Deep State has embedded the worst, most inept, violent extremist neocons to call the shots demanding hot wars in Venezuela and Iran.  These Zio-extremists occupy both political parties with equal bloodlust.

Being in a constant state of war enables Rothschild’s Federal Reserve Bank to print up trillions in worthless reserve notes, charging interest to their vassal states to fund these senseless wars.  The CIA, through its media stenographers sells these wars to the American people using lies and deceit.  From Press TV:

 Mike Pompeo: Glory of American experiment is ‘we lie, cheat, steal’

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, who is a former CIA director, has admitted to an audience that the American spy agency trains employees to “lie, cheat and steal.”

“I was a CIA director, we lied, we cheated we stole… like, we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment,” Pompeo recently told an audience in College Station, Texas.  Pompeo’s stunning admission comes as he and US National Security Advisor John Bolton have vowed to strangle Iran and cut off all oil exports, accusing the Islamic Republic of trying to develop nuclear weapons and missiles.

Commenting on this, former US congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul said, “This tell me that something is seriously wrong… He added that the “astounding thing is he is sort of bragging about it…   

 The veteran analyst said “this whole policy of putting these sanctions on Iran, I think this is a lot of arrogance and [Pompeo’s] statement, his quote demonstrates the arrogance which is so unnecessary and so damaging to our position in this country…”

 The White House and Pompeo said the decision is meant to “bring Iran’s oil exports to zero” and deny the government “its principal source of revenue.”  “With the announcement today, we’ve made clear our seriousness of purpose,” Pompeo said during a press conference on April 22. “We are going to zero. How long we remain there, at zero, depends solely on the Islamic Republic of Iran’s senior leaders.

The US decision on Monday more than failing to snuff out Iran’s oil exports will disrupt markets and complicate Washington’s relations with Beijing and even its own partners, industry analysts say.  Washington threatened the buyers of Iranian oil with sanctions if they fail to stop their purchases by May 1, in a move that quickly sent global crude prices to their highest levels since last November….

Hmm, Pompeo says the CIA lies, cheats and steals and we are told to believe them when they say Iran and Venezuela are imminent threats to America; therefore the US is justified in starving their people and launching preemptive military actions to remove their leaders killing thousands in the process.  Gawd, is this the best America has to offer?  Now these clowns want to launch WWIII.    Jeebus, these idiots are taking America off of a cliff.  From Uprooted Palestinians:

Resistance report: Syrian Army kicks off long overdue Idlib offensive and Washington intensifies Iran threats

Another week, another threat. Washington’s threats against Iran have become a weekly ritual now as idiots Pompeo and Bolton issued new threats towards as part of Washington’s “maximum pressure” campaign on Tehran. Tehran had earlier warned that if Iran cannot use the strait of Hormuz, then the IRGC would close it for everyone. This prompted Washington to ramp up its threats as they sent an aircraft carrier strike group to the region, in what was described as a “clear and unmistakable message to Iran” by Bolton.

He added that the decision was “in response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings.” Really? In this situation Iran is the aggressive one who is escalating things? The Persian Gulf is Iran’s lifeline, and Washington is looking to cut that lifeline, situated some 10 000 kilometres away from America’s eastern coastlines, yet Iran is the one that must argue for why it is not seeking war with the most aggressive evil regime the world has ever seen.

On top of that the White House fool Trump issued an executive order on Wednesday, imposing new sanctions on Iran’s metal and mining sectors, with Trump even taking to Twitter to threaten anyone doing business with Iran to have their assets illegally seized by Washington. At the same time, the White House fool added that he is “looking forward to someday meeting with the leaders of Iran in order to work out an agreement and, very importantly, taking steps to give Iran the future it deserves,”

What kind of a sick statement is this? Washington truly has no limit as to how low it can sink. Do they actually believe that Tehran will capitulate and agree to humiliation? I have a hard time believing even the idiots in Washington are this stupid. They can’t seriously believe that Tehran is going to be enticed to come back to the table with these threats and sanctions imposed.

As a matter of fact things in Iran is looking really bad for the proponents of the JCPOA and further negotiations with Washington and its vassals as the conservative bloc, known as “hardliners” in the West were actually proven right in their arguments that it is completely pointless to negotiate anything with the West.

 President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif have been facing a lot of scrutiny in Iran lately for their naïve belief that this deal would thaw relations with the West, and even Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has vocally criticized the deal in several speeches this year. As conservatives gain more ground in Iran, a fact I suspect Washington fully understands, Tehran is eyeing the only option remaining now: confrontation. It is either that or lying down and accepting death and defeat.

The only conclusion I can draw from this mess is that Washington is actively looking for war. They want to provoke Tehran into a first strike so that they can start a larger regional war not only against Iran but also Tehran’s allies in Hezbollah and the Iraqi militias in a bid to destroy the entire resistance to the Zionist empire altogether…

Yes, we lie, we cheat we steal.  That is the new America after the overthrow of our elected government on December 12, 2000.  The war criminals surrounding Trump have gone unpunished for their crimes and probably never will pay any price.  The only thing America has produced since the Zionist coup has been terror and debt.  Now the war drums are being beaten by these Zio-terrorists in the Trump Administration.  Tucker Carlson discusses this idiocy with Douglas MacGregor:  Video

America has nothing to gain and everything to lose by starting a war with Iran yet the Zio-terrorists in the Trump Administration continue with their baseless threats.  From RT:

‘Our aim is not war,’ Pompeo insists as US warships & bombers gather off coast of Iran

The US doesn’t want war but reserves the right to surround Iran with warships and bombers just in case Tehran makes a “bad” decision that doesn’t conform to Washington’s interests, Mike Pompeo has boldly stated in an interview.

The United States would “of course” welcome the opportunity to negotiate with Tehran, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC on Saturday. However, a build-up of “deterrent forces” around Iran is necessary so that the US could respond if Iran “decided to come after an American interest – whether that be in Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Yemen, or any place in the Middle East.”

He insisted that Washington has no interest in inflaming a new conflict in the region, but would still be prepared to act “in the event that the Iranians make a bad decision.”  “We’re not going to miscalculate: Our aim is not war, our aim is a change in the behavior of the Iranian leadership,” Pompeo said.

US wages ‘psychological war’ against Iran – Revolutionary Guards chief

Apparently as a behavior-changing incentive the US deployed the USS ‘Abraham Lincoln’ Carrier Strike Group as well as a bomber task force last week. US National Security Advisor John Bolton said that the move was designed to “send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime.”

The Pentagon also announced that a battery of Patriot missiles and the transport ship USS Arlington are being deployed to the region “in response to indications of heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations against US forces and our interests.”

While the US military has become a semi-permanent fixture in the Persian Gulf, it’s unusual for Washington to call out Iran by name when justifying such deployments. On Sunday, the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards, Major General Hossein Salami, described American activity in the region as a “psychological war.”

Still, Pompeo stressed that he would “welcome” a call from Tehran, but that sanctions and American military posturing would continue unless the Iranian government “changes its behavior.”  As an example, the Secretary of State claimed that Hezbollah, a militant group backed by Iran, is now operating in Venezuela – another country in Washington’s crosshairs. Pompeo has yet to provide evidence substantiating the Hezbollah-Venezuela link which he so often speaks out.

Venezuela itself has been exposed to Washington’s unique form of diplomacy: A US Coast Guard vessel was instructed to turn back after traveling towards Venezuela’s territorial waters. A patrol boat was dispatched by the Venezuelan Navy to discourage the US ship from encroaching further. Caracas has been faced with a crisis since January, when US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president.

We lie, we cheat we steal.  So how are we to believe the liar Pompeo when he claims “that Hezbollah, a militant group backed by Iran, is now operating in Venezuela” when “Pompeo has yet to provide evidence substantiating the Hezbollah-Venezuela link which he so often speaks out?”

Launching such an idiotic, undemocratic and violent takeover of Venezuela would devastate every country across the world, yet these nuts continue unabated.  The only thing holding them back at all is Donald J. Trump and for that he is the latest target for impeachment.  Trump would be wise to seize control of his presidency and remove Bolton, Pompeo, Abrams and the war criminals they have brought into the Trump Administration post haste.  They are hell-bent on removing the duly elected President of Venezuela, Nicholas Maduro.  The lies go on and on.  Video

The violence is not restricted to Venezuela the same violence is being experienced on the streets of Washington D.C. as fascist thugs loyal to CIA stooge Guido attack and bloody American citizen-peacemakers at the Venezuelan Embassy.  American citizens are being attacked for trying to bring food to the workers inside the embassy who are illegally being starved and deprived of basic necessities here in America.  From OpEd News:

AS U.S. Secret Service Terrorizes Embassy Protectors, Gloria La Riva Educates America about Venezuela

In Washington D.C, the Secret Service has cut the power to the Venezuelan Embassy in an attempt to terrorize the lawful guests of the legitimate Venezuelan Government. Similarly as Marco Rubio jumped the gun in his tween about Venezuela’s power grid, it was learned and later proven that the U. S. Government and forces of Juan Guaido were behind the power failures in Venezuela that killed innocent people who were on life support.

Former Presidential Candidate Gloria La Riva has noted that, though Nicolas Maduro diverted as much power as possible to the hospitals, patients on life support needed continuous power and some died. Similarly, U. S. Sanctions have killed 40,000 of people in Venezuela.

The Secret Service is blocking food and water deliveries to the Embassy Protectors and is standing by and protecting violent anti-Venezuelan mobs who have been accused of sexually assaulting and otherwise attacking those who have shown up to support the Embassy Protectors. The abuse of the Embassy Protectors in violation of U.S. law and the Vienna Conventions parallels the violations of national and international law by the U.S. Government against the legitimate Maduro Government of Venezuela.

On her educational tour throughout the U.S, Gloria La Riva, who recently visited Venezuela along with some of the Embassy Protectors during the U.S. orchestrated blackouts, was very impressed with the efforts of the Maduro Government to protect and support the Venezuelan people. She spoke of the growing spirit of the Venezuelan people, who have banded together in support of Maduro in spite of violence perpetrated on them by the U.S. Government and Guaido’s conspirators in the inappropriately named white supremacist Popular Will Party from which Juan Guaido comes.

The U.S. equivalent of Venezuela’s Popular Will Party is the Ku Klux Klan. The Popular Will Party is armed and has, at times, fired upon civilians, killing thousands. The vast majority of Venezuelan residents are Black and Indian and they will lose their homes and their standard of living if Guaido’s white supremacists are put into power…

Years ago, Hugo Chavez became the popular hero of Venezuela, having stood up as a military hero against a government that killed 3000 Venezuelans in a one week period during 1989. For standing up and speaking out, Hugo Chavez was put into the formerly treacherous prison system in Venezuela in 1992 but was released following public outcries in 1994 In 1998, he was elected President of Venezuela. Unlike the Rafael Caldera Government, Chavez’s Bolivarian Revolution was based on the idea that the resources of Venezuela belonged to the people.

In addition to putting into place the kind of reforms Bernie has called for in the USA, Chavez reformed the prison system, making it humane and protective of the rights of the inmates, something it was not when he was held prisoners. On his death bed, Chavez spoke to the Venezuelan people and asked them to support his Vice President Nicolas Maduro to be their next President.

Maduro has expanded on Chavez’s reforms, building millions of new homes in the last few years. In Venezuela, people own their homes and cannot be evicted. As a result, there is no homelessness. The government provides boxes of food to the people bi-weekly, supplying all their food needs. This has been necessary because of the U.S. sanctions and the theft of foods from the supermarkets by black market profiteers. The supermarkets are currently full of food but the boxes of food provided to each family has alleviated any financial difficulties in purchasing the food.

Venezuela also has free medical care. 2400 doctors (not military people) were sent from Cuba to help provide the free medical care. The U.S. Government has been blocking medicine shipments. This has caused problems to people with medical conditions. Russia and China are trying to assist with providing the medicine the U.S. Government is trying to keep out in order to save lives.

While the U.S. longevity rate has gone down, thanks to the reforms of Chavez and Maduro, it has gone up in Venezuela. The infant mortality rate decreased by half within two years of Chavez taking office. It has increased in the USA…

In America’s May Day marches, the most popular signs were those in support of Maduro and Venezuela. In Los Angeles, ANSWER ran out of pro-Venezuelan signs long before the march, due to the non-stop requests for those signs. Despite CNN’s, MSNBC’s and Government lies, the majority of the American people are standing with the Venezuelan people…

Among those leaders opposing U.S. intervention in Venezuela are Congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard and Ilhan Omar and Senator Bernie Sanders. However, they have a fight on their hands given the oil money the Koch Brothers and the Trump Administration expect to receive if Maduro and the will of the Venezuelan people is overthrown.

We lie, we cheat we steal.  That last paragraph says it all, “Congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard and Ilhan Omar and Senator Bernie Sanders have a fight on their hands given the oil money the Koch Brothers and the Trump Administration expect to receive if Maduro and the will of the Venezuelan people is overthrown.”   Mike Pompeo has no loyalty to America, his loyalty lies with the Koch Brothers.  From John Nichols at The Nation:

Excerpt:

The Koch Brothers Get Their Very Own Secretary of State

Trump’s pick to replace Rex Tillerson is an errand boy for billionaires.

In the Republican wave election of 2010, when Charles and David Koch emerged as defining figures in American politics, the greatest beneficiary of Koch Industries largesse was a political newcomer named Mike Pompeo. After his election to the House eight years ago, Pompeo was referred to as the “Koch Brothers’ Congressman” and “the congressman from Koch.”  Now Pompeo is positioned to become a Koch brothers–influenced secretary of state.

After serving for a little more than a year as Donald Trump’s top yes-man at the Central Intelligence Agency, Pompeo is Trump’s pick to replace Rex Tillerson, the administration’s listless placeholder at the Department of State.

In a measure of the extent to which Trump and Tillerson had disengaged from one another, the outgoing secretary of state apparently learned of his firing via Twitter Tuesday morning—when an aide showed the nation’s top diplomat a tweet from the president announcing the transition. A statement from the department indicated that Tillerson was “unaware of the reason” for his removal.

Tillerson displayed a measure of independence from Trump on issues ranging from Russian cyber attacks to the aggressive approach of Saudi Arabia to Qatar and other countries.  Donald Trump has decided to put “the congressman from Koch” in charge of the State Department and, by extension, the engagement of the United States government with a world in which the brothers Koch have many, many interests.

Pompeo’s pattern of deference to his political benefactors is likely to make him a better fit with a self-absorbed president. He will also bring to the position an edge that Tillerson lacked. Pompeo is a foreign-policy hawk who fiercely opposed the Iran nuclear deal, stoked fears about Muslims in the United States and abroad, opposed closing the Guantánamo Bay detention camp, and defended the National Security Agency’s unconstitutional surveillance programs as “good and important work.”

 He has even gone so far as to say that NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden “should be brought back from Russia and given due process, and I think the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence.”

Pompeo’s open disregard for privacy rights in particular and civil liberties in general, as well as his penchant for extreme language and more extreme policies, are anything but diplomatic…

In addition to being a hothead, Pompeo has long been one of the most conflicted political figures in the conflicted city of Washington, thanks to his ties to the privately held and secretive global business empire that has played a pivotal role in advancing his political career. Pompeo came out of the same Wichita, Kansas, business community where the Koch family’s oil-and-gas conglomerate is headquartered. Indeed, Pompeo built his own company with seed money from Koch Venture Capital.

More important, from a political standpoint, is the fact that Pompeo made the leap from business to government with a big boost from the Koch brothers and their employees. “I’m sure he would vigorously dispute this, but it’s hard not to characterize him as the congressman from Koch,” says University of Kansas political science professor Burdett Loomis…

Unfortunately, as is so often the case with Republican recipients of Koch cash and encouragement, it is the advocacy by these billionaire businessmen and their allies for domestic and international policies that favor multinational corporations that tends to influences the likes of Pompeo.)

As the Center for Food Safety, which has wrangled with Pompeo on food-labeling issues that are of tremendous interest to the global agribusiness and grocery industries, noted in 2014:

Congressman Mike Pompeo was the single largest recipient of campaign funds from the Koch Brothers in 2010. After winning election with Koch money, Congressman Pompeo hired a Koch Industries lawyer to run his office. According to The Washington Post, Congressman Pompeo then introduced bills friendly to Koch Industries while Koch hired outside lobbyists to support them.

Recalling the 2010 election, the Center for Responsive Politics explained that

Koch Industries had never spent as much on a candidate in a single cycle as it did on Pompeo that time around, giving him a total [of] $80,000. Koch outdid itself again in the 2012 cycle by ponying up $110,000 for Pompeo’s campaign.

When Pompeo ran for reelection in 2014, he faced a tight primary contest with another local Republican who had Koch ties. One of the biggest turning points in that race came when the Kochs sided with Pompeo…

Just as the Kochs have been loyal to Pompeo, so Pompeo has been loyal to the Kochs. He’s a regular at their behind-closed-doors gatherings, and he’s outspoken in their defense, claiming that President Obama and “Nixonian” Democrats have unfairly “vilified” Charles and David Koch.

We lie, we cheat we steal.  Make no mistake about it Pompeo’s interest in taking over Venezuela by force isn’t just about oil.  After all as John Nichols noted in the above article “Pompeo has pushed against food-labeling issues that are of tremendous interest to the global agribusiness and grocery industries.”  From Whitney Webb at Geopolitics:

How GMO Seeds and Monsanto/Bayer’s “RoundUp” are Driving US Policy in Venezuela

With Juan Guaidó’s parallel government attempting to take power with the backing of the U.S., it is telling that the top political donors of those in the U.S. most fervently pushing regime change in Venezuela have close ties to Monsanto and major financial stakes in Bayer.

CARACAS, VENEZUELA — As the political crisis in Venezuela has unfolded, much has been said about the Trump administration’s clear interest in the privatization and exploitation of Venezuela’s oil reserves, the largest in the world, by American oil giants like Chevron and ExxonMobil.  Yet the influence of another notorious American company, Monsanto — now a subsidiary of Bayer — has gone largely unmentioned.

While numerous other Latin American nations have become a “free for all” for the biotech company and its affiliates, Venezuela has been one of the few countries to fight Monsanto and other international agrochemical giants and win. However, since that victory — which was won under Chavista rule — the U.S.-backed Venezuelan opposition has been working to undo it.

Now, with Juan Guaidó’s parallel government attempting to take power with the backing of the U.S., it is telling that the top political donors of those in the U.S. most fervently pushing regime change in Venezuela have close ties to Monsanto and major financial stakes in Bayer.

In recent months, Monsanto’s most controversial and notorious product — the pesticide glyphosate, branded as Roundup, and linked to cancer in recent U.S. court rulings — has threatened Bayer’s financial future as never before, with a litany of new court cases barking at Bayer’s door.

It appears that many of the forces in the U.S. now seeking to overthrow the Venezuelan government are hoping that a new Guaidó-led government will provide Bayer with a fresh, much-needed market for its agrochemicals and transgenic seeds, particularly those products that now face bans in countries all over the world, including once-defoliated and still-poisoned Vietnam.

U.S.-Backed Venezuelan opposition seeks to reverse Chavista seed law and GMO ban

In 2004, then-president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, surprised many when he announced the cancellation of Monsanto’s plans to plant 500,000 acres of Venezuelan agricultural land in genetically modified (GM) soybeans.

The cancellation of Monsanto’s Venezuela contract led to what became an ad hoc ban on all GM seeds in the entire country, a move that was praised by local farmer groups and environmental activists. In contrast to anti-GM movements that have sprung up in other countries, Venezuela’s resistance to GM crops was based more on concerns about the country’s food sovereignty and protecting the livelihoods of farmers.

Although the ban has failed to keep GM products out of Venezuela — as Venezuela has long imported a majority of its food, much of it originating in countries that are among the world’s largest producers of genetically modified foods — one clear effect has been preventing companies like Monsanto and other major agrochemical and seed companies from gaining any significant foothold in the Venezuelan market.

In 2013, a new seed law was nearly passed that would have allowed GM seeds to be sold in Venezuela through a legal loophole. That law, which was authored by a member of the Chavista United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), was widely protested by farmers, indigenous activists, environmentalists, and eco-socialist groups, which led to the law’s transformation into what has been nicknamed the “People’s Seed Law.” That law, passed in 2015, went even farther than the original 2004 ban by banning not just GM seeds but several toxic agrochemicals, while also strengthening heirloom seed varieties through the creation of the National Seed Institute.

Soon after the new seed law was passed in 2015, the U.S.-backed Venezuelan opposition led by the Roundtable of Democratic Unity (MUD) — a group comprised of numerous U.S.-funded political parties, including Guaidó’s Popular Will — took control of the country’s National Assembly. Until Venezuela’s Supreme Court dissolved the assembly in 2017, the MUD-legislature attempted to repeal the seed law on several occasions. Those in favor of the repeal called the seed bill “anti-scientific” and damaging to the economy.

Despite the 2017 Supreme Court decision, the National Assembly has continued to meet, but the body holds no real power in the current Venezuelan government. However, if the current government is overthrown and Guaidó  — the “interim president” who is also president of the dissolved National Assembly — comes to power, it seems almost certain that the “People’s Seed Law” will be one of the first pieces of legislation on the chopping block.

Some of the key figures and loudest voices supporting the efforts of the Trump administration to overthrow the Venezuelan government in the United States are well-connected to one particular think-tank, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). For instance, John Bolton — now Trump’s national security advisor and a major player in the administration’s aggressive Venezuela policy — was a senior fellow at AEI until he became Trump’s top national security official.

As national security adviser, Bolton advises the president on foreign policy and issues of national security while also advising both the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense. As of late, he has been pushing for military action in Venezuela, according to media reports.

Another key figure in Trump’s Venezuela policy — Elliott Abrams, the State Department’s Special Representative for Venezuela — has been regularly featured at AEI summits and as a guest on its panels and podcasts. According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Abrams’ current role gives him the “responsibility for all things related to our efforts to restore democracy” in Venezuela.

Other top figures in the administration, including Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, were featured guests at the AEI’s “secretive” gathering in early March. As MintPress and other outlets have reported, Guaidó declared himself “interim president” of Venezuela at Pence’s behest. Pompeo is also intimately involved in directing Trump’s Venezuela policy as the president’s main adviser on foreign affairs…

While the AEI is best known for its hawkishness, it is also a promoter of big agricultural interests. Since 2000, It has hosted several conferences on the promise of “biotechnology” and genetically modified seeds and has heavily promoted the work of former Monsanto lobbyist Jon Entine, who was an AEI visiting fellow for several years. The AEI also has long-time connections to Dow Chemical.

The most likely reason for the AEI’s interest in promoting biotech, however, can be found in its links to Monsanto. In 2013, The Nation acquired a 2009 AEI document, obtained through a filing error and not intended for public disclosure, that revealed the think tank’s top donors. The form, known as the “schedule of contributors,” revealed that the AEI’s top two donors at the time were the Donors Capital Fund and billionaire Paul Singer…

Yet, it is AEI’s top individual donor noted in the accidental “schedule of contributors” disclosure who is most telling about the private biotech interests guiding the Trump administration’s Venezuela policy. Paul Singer, the controversial billionaire hedge fund manager, has long been a major donor to neoconservative and Zionist causes — helping fund the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), the successor to the Project for a New American Century (PNAC); and the neoconservative and islamophobic Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), in addition to the AEI.

Singer is notably one of the top political donors to Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and has been intimately involved in the recent chaos in Venezuela. He has been called one of the architects of the administration’s current regime-change policy, and was the top donor to Rubio’s presidential campaign, as well as a key figure behind the controversial “dossier” on Donald Trump that was compiled by Fusion GPS.

Indeed, Singer had been the first person to hire Fusion GPS to do “opposition research” on Trump. However, Singer has largely since evaded much scrutiny for his role in the dossier’s creation, likely because he became a key donor to Trump following his election win in 2016, giving $1 million to Trump’s inauguration fund.

We lie, we cheat we steal.  Stink tanks like AEI do not have American interests at heart.  They should be disbanded and illegal in America for their Anti-American activities.  This cabal is planning a hot war with Iran and is plotting a False Flag Attack to kick off the festivities.  From State of the Nation:

SOS: False Flag Attack Being Staged by Israel Against U.S. Targets to Start War with Iran

U.S. Military fighting yet another war to advance the Greater Israel project

The Millennium Report

If there is one cataclysmic train wreck happening in slow motion on the global geopolitical chessboard, it’s the Neocon-instigated war being waged by the Trump administration against Iran. The financial terrorism and economic sabotage inflicted by the U.S. have themselves been egregious acts of war.

Trump Administration Goes All Out to Wreck Iranian Economy  Truly, it does not any more serious than this colossal foreign policy fiasco.

Once again, the apartheid state of Israel has successfully hijacked the U.S. Military, State Department and Intelligence Community in order to wage an unprovoked war of naked aggression against a sovereign state in the Middle East.  It’s of paramount importance to understand that this war-in-the-making is the culmination of a covert plan to advance the Greater Israel project. As follows:

Only with this critical understanding will such a transparently illegal, reckless and catastrophic war make any sense. Catastrophic because such misguided warmongering by the Neocons is guaranteed to trigger the hot phase of World War III. Of course, the New World Order cabal is counting on exactly that eventuality. See: The Only Remaining Option for the NWO Globalist Cabal is: World War III

For the global crime syndicate known as the International Banking Cartel that runs the perpetual war economy across the planet, they know that the end is very near for them. The entire Global Economic & Financial System is teetering on the precipice of a total and final collapse. Their only way out is war—a Third World War with which to implement the last stage of the NWO agenda—the establishment of a totalitarian One World Government.

Iran is the lynchpin in this insane scheme to plunge the world community of nations into chaos out of which the NWO cabal will fabricate a draconian communist order not too unlike the 20th century’s Soviet Union. This is precisely why President Trump was ordered by his Neocon Zionist masters to form his stone-cold war cabinet of Bolton, Pompeo, Pence, Haspel, Abrams and Shanahan. Each warmonger was hand-picked by Israel to develop and implement the war plans necessary to conquer Iran…

It has been quite clear ever since Trump first declared his candidacy in June of 2015 that war against Iran was the very centerpiece of his foreign policy. Every major foreign policy decision has been made toward that end, including the intentionally failed military coup against Venezuela…

Now the whole world is seeing just how much premeditation and stealth have gone into this ‘America war’ against Iran fought on behalf of Israel. The Neocon Zionists have been planning this armed conflict for decades, and they know it must not fail or else….

These warmongers know that there’s a tried and tested way to start any regional war, especially one that needs to capture the full support of the American people. They will attempt to conduct an extremely heinous and highly provocative false flag terrorist attack on American assets somewhere in the world. If not that, the Neocon perps will surreptitiously stage an all-out attack on the U.S. Navy in the Mideast which will immediately be blamed on Iran.

The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty provides the best example of how Israel might be used to stage this false flag operation. PM Netanyahu has already proven to be an arch-enemy of the United States as demonstrated by his own words HERE and he will do whatever it takes to trick the U.S citizenry into supporting his odious wars…

If ever there was a time for cooler heads to prevail in the Trump administration, that time is surely now. Nothing less than the prevention of the hot phase of World War III is at stake.

HUGE BETRAYAL: Team Trump Planning Major War Using Tactical Nukes Against Iran for Fall 2019

TMR Editor’s Note: The following report represents Trump’s biggest betrayal yet of the American people. He was voted into office to end the wars and not to start new ones.  The covert war plans being drawn up by the administration’s many Neocon warmongers will inevitably trigger the hot phase of World War III. And Trump and his Neocon War Cabinet don’t even care. All they want is to conquer Iran for the benefit of Israel.

Sadly, the POTUS now spends more time with MIGA than he does with MAGA. His re-election prospects will be doomed should he wage an unprovoked war of naked aggression against Iran, especially if it’s initiated on the pretext of a false flag attack conducted by Israel or other deceitful proxy.

SPECIAL MESSAGE to Israel: Iran has been secretly equipped to fire a variety of highly advanced, surgical strike, ballistic missiles anywhere they want to throughout Israel. Their weaponry and drone technology are far beyond what the West is aware of. Hence, any attack against Israel is guaranteed to “wipe Israel off the map” as the Israelis say they want to do to Iran, even without the slightest provocation. Tel Aviv will surely become a smoking pile of devastation should the U.S. military attack Iran on behalf of Israel.

President Donald Trump and his inner circle are planning an extensive invasion of Iran, according to a source working in the White House.  The plan involves a ground invasion and the use of tactical nuclear weapons, in a campaign planned for the Fall of 2019. Iran will be “wiped off the map” according to the source, and the war effort is expected to cost “two and half times the Iraq War.”

The war will be promoted by the news media and Trump will go right along with it, after an “expected False Flag pinned on Iran, probably something involving the boats in the Strait of Hormuz.” The False Flag is an “integral part of the plan” as Iran has reportedly no desire or intent to start a war, according to the whistleblower.

The war plans have the White House staff “in an excited tizzy” as war-hawks like John Bolton put the “finishing touches” on the planned strike. President Trump initially showed resistance to the plan, but has since jumped on board with enthusiasm, convinced Iran is an “existential threat to Israel” and as such, a war is required to “eliminate them.”

Due to President Trump’s close relationship with Jared Kushner, a sense of “sober import” has been placed on the war effort, which is being as a fulfillment of “Jewish prophecy” within White House circles. Many in the White House believe Jared Kushner is the “Messiah” or Jewish “Moshiach” who cannot attain his “throne” until Iran is wiped out…

We lie, we cheat we steal.  But there is a light at the end of the tunnel of this house of horrors, Trump’s trade war with China will escalate the collapse of America’s financial house of cards.  From James Howard Kunstler at Russia Insider:

The US-China Trade Scuffle Will Kick Off the Great Meltdown

The be-Muellered, bothered, and bewildered American public may find US-China trade talks about as interesting as a rain delay in an Orioles-Chisox game, but the Friday collapse of negotiations may be marked by historians as the day that the global economy died. The Big Box blue-light-special orgy of bargain shopping ran about thirty years, with China exuberantly pumping out cheap consumer goods to feed the US beast-of-Mammon. Americans happily payed for it all with IOUs based on long daisy chains of previous IOUs. Tom Friedman of The New York Times said it would last forever. Alas….

The paradigm kicked off for one simple reason: energy flows dictated capital flows. By the mid-1980s, the non-OPEC world was once again swimming in oil from the last great bonanzas of the oil age: The Alaska North Slope and the North Sea. Twenty years later, they were running down. Meanwhile, the USA had fecklessly “offshored” its factories in the mistaken belief that we had entered a shimmering new digital economy of virtual business were (sic) nobody had to make real stuff.

China became the world’s workshop and the USA became the world’s financial bucket-shop, churning out endless swindles and frauds. The predictable result was the financial crisis of 2008, which coincided with oil prices rising to over $140-a-barrel (and six months later they crashed, with the economy, to under $30-a-barrel).

The “recovery” from that was based on Wall Street’s premier swindle: the shale oil “miracle,” based on high-risk lending to companies that couldn’t make a red cent even while accomplishing the majestic stunt of exceeding America’s old 1970 oil production peak of around 10 million barrels-a-day (now at around 12 million). Notice, too, that the final push to 12-million barrels occurred during the last two years: thus, Mr. Trump’s miracle economy. All that, to paraphrase the immortal words of Mr. Dylan, balances like a mattress on a bottle of wine.

The China-US trade impasse, if it stands for even a few months, will crash the US economy again and it will also crash the price of shale oil back to levels that destroy oil companies. You understand, of course, that the rise of shale oil was amazingly swift, ten years, and that its fall will be similarly fast and furious. The feds may have to either bail it out or nationalize the whole shootin’ match — and that will end up as just another rat-hole we pound sand into, along with our long-running campaign to build failed states overseas. Translation: not so good for the value of the US dollar.

We’re moving into a summer of grave discontent. I don’t believe that China-US trade relationship can be repaired. The disturbances we have set in motion will surely unleash the wicked animus against the USA that has been building among other nations since before 9/11/01.

Even the Europeans, our old pals, have soured on us. The war hawks are steering our ship-of-state into reefy waters. The dithering Federal Reserve (America’s central bank) has painted itself into a corner with years of interest rate suppression and market manipulations. Bad weather in the American breadbasket portends rising food prices for us, and less to export (or give away) to the really hungry corners of the world. Less food makes for belligerent nations.

There is already enough tension in the world as it faces not just the end of a global trade fiesta, but a world-wide synchronized economic depression. This is the one from which there will be no “recovery” but only adaptation to lower standards of living and new arrangements for getting by. In other words, the contraction will be permanent…

Our fantasies about the super high-tech nirvana of endless leisure with sex robots will dissolve with it. The dark apprehension of all this has already produced a psychotic break in US politics. We now live in a land where Nabisco uses transsexuals to sell Chips Ahoy cookies.  Next to us, the old Weimar Republic looks like a Boy Scout camporee.

This economic meltdown will play into the worst insecurities of Mr. Trump, the Golden Golem of Greatness. His domestic political antagonists long ago declared all-out war on him. The perpetually rising stock market was all that tempered his behavior in the face of that obloquy. With the economy fizzling, he will fight back Golem-style, like a demon from the underworld.

But for all of Mr. Trump’s Teutonic neuroticism, he holds an advantage in that battle: the documented facts appear to show that he was unfairly persecuted for two years by opponents who outsmarted themselves in actually breaking the law, and they are on the run before a gathering juggernaut of referrals for indictments. The craziness of their desperation is now on view for all to see in the antics of the House committees.

All this raises the question: can this country hold itself together? Mr. Trump would be a most unlikely figure to provide the necessary moral support. He’s no Franklin Roosevelt reassuring the immiserated masses with fireside chats over the radio, and he sure ain’t Fiorello LaGuardia, reading the Sunday funnies to people out of work and out of luck. But never forget that history is a trickster. Even the profoundly flawed sometimes strangely find themselves on the hero’s journey.

After toying with the idea of placing clowns like Herman Cain and Stephen Moore on the Federal Reserve Board, Trump has finally placed his sites on a respected economist that favors returning to the gold standard.  From Zero Hedge:

Judy Shelton, Trump’s Next Fed Choice, Favors A Gold Standard And Free Trade

The White House is considering conservative economist Judy Shelton to fill one of the two vacancies on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors that President Donald Trump has struggled to fill.

She’s currently U.S. executive director for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and previously worked for the Sound Money Project, which was founded to promote awareness about monetary stability and financial privacy.

Case for Monetary Regime Change

On April 21, Judy Shelton had an ope-ed in the Wall Street Journal: The Case for Monetary Regime Change.  Since President Trump announced his intention to nominate Herman Cain and Stephen Moore to serve on the Federal Reserve’s board of governors, mainstream commentators have made a point of dismissing anyone sympathetic to a gold standard as crankish or unqualified.

But it is wholly legitimate, and entirely prudent, to question the infallibility of the Federal Reserve in calibrating the money supply to the needs of the economy. No other government institution had more influence over the creation of money and credit in the lead-up to the devastating 2008 global meltdown. And the Fed’s response to the meltdown may have exacerbated the damage by lowering the incentive for banks to fund private-sector growth.

What began as an emergency decision in the wake of the financial crisis to pay interest to commercial banks on excess reserves has become the Fed’s main mechanism for conducting monetary policy. To raise interest rates, the Fed increases the rate it pays banks to keep their $1.5 trillion in excess reserves—eight times what is required—parked in accounts at Federal Reserve district banks. Rewarding banks for holding excess reserves in sterile depository accounts at the Fed rather than making loans to the public does not help create business or spur job creation.

Meanwhile, for all the talk of a “rules-based” system for international trade, there are no rules when it comes to ensuring a level monetary playing field. The classical gold standard established an international benchmark for currency values, consistent with free-trade principles. Today’s arrangements permit governments to manipulate their currencies to gain an export advantage.

Money is meant to serve as a reliable unit of account and store of value across borders and through time. It’s entirely reasonable to ask whether this might be better assured by linking the supply of money and credit to gold or some other reference point as opposed to relying on the judgment of a dozen or so monetary officials meeting eight times a year to set interest rates. A linked system could allow currency convertibility by individuals (as under a gold standard) or foreign central banks (as under Bretton Woods). Either way, it could redress inflationary pressures.

Money Meltdown

Judy Shelton is author of the 1998 book Money Meltdown.  I just ordered the book to have a better idea where she is coming from.  Regardless, I am certain she would have been a better choice for Fed chair than Powell, Bernanke, Yellen, or Greenspan.

Bubbles of Increasing Amplitude

Shelton concluded “Central bankers, and their defenders, have proven less than omniscient.”

Indeed.

The judgement of the Fed has produced three consecutive bubbles, each bigger than the one before it. The only reason the latest bubble is not acknowledged yet is that it hasn’t yet burst.  It’s not clear precisely what Shelton has in mind but at least she is headed in the right direction. What’s clear is Trump is fighting the wrong battle when it comes to trade.

Tariffs will not fix the alleged problems of currency manipulation. A gold standard would.

All of these wars would never have been possible if Nixon had not taken America off the gold standard in order to fund the Vietnam War.  When President Clinton left office after 8 years of peace and prosperity, America had a surplus.  The Federal Reserve Bank’s 100 year contract to print up America’s currency was set to expire in 2013.  The Fed needed endless wars in order to justify their existence therefore America’s elected government was overthrown in December 2000.

Five corrupt members of the Supreme Court declared George W. Bush, as the winner of the presidential election.  Within nine months the World Trade Center was brought down through a controlled demolition.   Bush and Cheney came into office with plans to keep America in unending war.  General Wesley Clark was told that Bush/Cheney entered office with plans to overthrow seven countries in five years.

We lie, we cheat we steal, that is the new normal in America.  The new Attorney General, William Barr has opened an investigation into the origin of the corrupt intelligence used to spy on the Trump Administration.  The Zio-terrorists in the Trump Administration were up to their eyeballs in producing the dodgy dossier used to obtain a FISA Court warrant that allowed the spying on Trump’s campaign.  Let the indictments begin, lock up the liars, cheats and thieves.
