Zionist Neo-cons Leak Situation Room Talk Between Trump and His Top General Regarding Syrian Withdrawal Reader 04/08/2018 (Sun) 15:36:25 Id: c9eff4 [Preview] No. 7877 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A confrontation in the Situation Room with President Trump and his most senior military commander has been leaked.

President Trump’s recent announcement that he would be pulling troops out of Syria “very soon” has revealed a major source of tension between the president and his generals.

This week, Trump held a summit in his White House situation room on how to get US troops out of Syria but there has been an astonishing breach.

Chairman of Joint chief of Staff, Marine General Joseph Dunford, clashed over what to do about Syria with Dunford reprimanding the President- so Trump demanded an immediate pull-out.

Both Dunford and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis went head to head with Trump on pulling out of Syria in the Situation Room encounter.

Talks with the CIA were also leaked, which is bound to increase tensions in Washington over Syria.

The Mail Online reports: https://archive.fo/SJ92G

Five officials brief the Associated Press on that happened as Gen Dunford told him his approach was ‘unproductive’ and demanded that he issue ‘specific instructions’ on how to proceed.

And the Washington Post detailed how Trump demanded of its head of drone operations – an official whose name is a secret – why operators had waited until a terrorist had left his family’s home before killing him.

Damn it, Trump turned out to be just another neo-con warhawk kissing Israel's ass once again. When will this bullshit stop? Every American should stop joining the military and boycott the draft, this would eventually put a stop to all this bullshit, when they run out of pawns to do their bidding. And to be serious the "swamp" has corrupted the military, its just as corrupt as the government at this point. I have absolutely no hope for this country anymore. Better prep for collapse.

Zionist Neo-con Nikki Haley Hooting For War Against Russia Reader 04/07/2018 (Sat) 14:54:33 Id: 7cab81 [Preview] No. 7852 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The US ambassador to the UN has warned that Russia will “never be America’s friend” and that Moscow can try to behave “like a regular country,” but the US will “slap them when we need to”

Nikki Haley’s latest take on US-Russia relations stands out even among her most rabid Russiaphobic ramblings.

Speaking at Duke University in North Carolina on Friday, she admitted that friendly relations with Russia is an unlikely prospect, adding that the Trump team has done more against Moscow than any other administration since Ronald Reagan’s tenure.

RT reports: Russia’s never going to be our friend,” Haley told students at a Q&A session, responding to a question about “holding Russia accountable” for alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The diplomat said Washington still works with Moscow “when we need to, and we slap them when we need to.”

She then raised the stakes further: “Everybody likes to listen to the words. I’m going to tell you – look at the actions,” Haley urged. “We expelled 60 Russian diplomats/spies, we have armed Ukraine so that they can defend themselves,” she added.

According to the UN envoy, the US is doing “two things Russia would never want us to do,” namely enlarging the military and expanding its energy policy. “So, this president has done more against Russia than any president since Reagan,” she asserted.

“You haven’t seen the end of what this administration will do to Russia. You will continue to see that play out,” she stressed.

Cooling down the degree of Russia-bashing in her speech, Haley said the US and Russia do cooperate on Afghanistan and Africa, looking out for areas of mutual interest. Meanwhile, she claimed, “our relations with Russia depend solely on Russia.”

Just in the nick of time, another 'Syrian gas attack' with chlorine, how convenient. They want war with Assad and Putin are are trying everything they can to create that war. This brings me to one conclusion: the Zionist-controlled Rothschild banking cartel plans to crash the US dollar soon and they will blame the financial collapse on another world war. Just in the nick of time as well, we are seeing the Petro-yuan go live as of NOW. Purely coincidence goyim, pure coincidence right?

My conclusion is China was set up to become the next major superpower years ago when we began outsourcing our domestic industries to them. All the industrial secrets leaked to China during the Clinton administration years was no coincidence. It was planned to screw the US. (((Rothschilds))) fully control our currency and issuance of it. They can create debts out of thin air, steal endless fiat and consolidate more wealth via buying up corporate shares and through "mergers and acquisitions" on the highly rigged market. They did this to all companies who outsourced and fled to China. So they own those companies in China now and hold no loyalty to the US.

Now that they have gutted prosperity in the US using their puppet politicians and presidents (which were bought and paid for), they are going to blame our collapse on another world war. Oh perfect opportunity! Stage a war between the US and Russia (Russia now being a sovereign Christian nation once again!) Killing two goyim with ONE stone! China emerges as the leader, and the Rothschilds win the game once again!

Parkland shooting victim Anthony Borges slammed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Superintendent Robert Runcie for failing "on so many levels" leading up to the February 14 massacre that left 17 students and teachers dead, reports CBS Miami via The Red Elephants.

“To Sheriff Israel of the Broward Sheriff’s Office and Robert Runcie, the Superintendent of schools in Broward, I want to thank you for visiting me at the hospital, but I want to say that both of you failed us, students, teachers and parents alike, on so many levels,” read Borges's attorney Alex Arreaza.

Borges is being hailed as a hero for saving the lives of 20 classmates for attempting to close and lock a classroom door during the shooting - taking five bullets in the process.

Failures at multiple levels...

Between the Broward Sheriff's Office, the FBI, school officials, and others involved with Nikolas Cruz and his brother, authorities had clear and specific warnings that Cruz intended on shooting up a school.

In February, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) noted that the FBI never contacted YouTube parent Google - after it was reported that suspect Nikolas Cruz, under his own name, wrote "I'm going to be a professional school shooter" in a YouTube video comment last September.

When the uploader of the video, Ben Bennight, contacted the FBI shortly after Cruz left the comment, officials spoke with him for 20 minutes, after which there was no follow up until the same agent or agents came to his home on Wednesday after the shooting.

In a March press conference, Special Agent Robert Lansky who is in charge of the Miami FBI division said that the FBI received the tip, however they were "unable to further identify" the person who made the comment, despite conducting "database reviews" and "checks."

"No other information was included with that comment, which would indicate a time, location or the true identity of the person who made the comment," Lasky said. "The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment."

Had they simply followed up, agents would have also discovered from Florida's state social services agency that Cruz intended to buy a gun, and that he had been cutting his arms on snapchat.

FBI investigators could have then called the Broward County Sheriff's department and found out about the 23 times deputies responded to Cruz's home over a seven year period for emergencies including a "mentally ill person, " "child/elderly abuse", "domestic disturbance," and "missing person." The last call received by Broward County Sheriff's office on November 30, was a warning a caller who warned that Cruz is collecting guns and knives. Concerned he will kill himself one day and believes he could be a school shooter in the making."

"You know, its just so much," said the caller. "I know he's going to explode." The woman said she was making the call because she wanted a clear conscience if he takes off and, and just starts shooting places up, according to the transcripts which were reviewed by the Wall Street Journal.

There were plenty of other incidents along the way which contributed to Cruz's ability to conduct his shooting spree. For example, had Cruz been properly arrested and prosecuted for holding a gun to his brother and mother's head, threatening their lives - he would have likely been charged with a felony and been unable to legally obtain weapons.

Speaking at a press conference, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said the on duty officer at Stoneman "never went in." Israel said he was "devastated" after watching the video showing the deputy taking a position outside the Western side of Building 12 while shots rang out, "and he never went in" despite having a clear view of the entrance.

"I think he remained outside upwards of four minutes," Israel said.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to track the vast networks of journalists, bloggers and other "media influencers" through a massive, searchable database that will allow them to monitor "any and all" trends in real time, according to a publicly posted job listing.

Apparently the NSA doesn't share their toys with DHS...

The DHS "Media Monitoring" initiative is currently seeking a contractor who can provide DHS with the ability to track over 290,000 global news sources in more than 100 languages - including online, print, bradcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, traditional news sources and social media platforms.

“Services shall provide media comparison tools, design and rebranding tools, communication tools, and the ability to identify top media influencers,” according to the job call, in order to help DHS agencies fulfill "a critical need to incorporate these functions into their programs in order to better reach federal, state, local, tribal, and private partners."

The department's "Statement of Work for Media Monitoring Services" requires the following:

Online & Social Media Monitoring

Ability to track global online sources for coverage relevant to Washington and the six media hubs:

• Ability to track > 290,000 global news sources

Trump Threatens $100 Billion More In Tariffs, Warns Market of Turbulence, China Could Cut Off Rare Earth Minerals Reader 04/06/2018 (Fri) 16:18:04 Id: b741a6 [Preview] No. 7827 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

President Donald Trump on Thursday directed U.S. trade officials to identify tariffs on $100 billion more Chinese imports, upping the ante in an already high-stakes trade confrontation between the world’s two largest economies.

The further tariffs were being considered “in light of China’s unfair retaliation” against earlier U.S. trade actions, which included a proposed $50 billion of tariffs on Chinese goods, Trump said in a White House statement.

“This is what a trade war looks like, and what we have warned against from the start,” said National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay.

“We are on a dangerous downward spiral and American families will be on the losing end,” Shay added in a statement, urging Trump “to stop playing a game of chicken with the U.S. economy.”


Moments ago, Trump himself confirmed that when in a radio interview on Friday morning, the president said that U.S. markets could face some “pain’’ from the trade standoff with China and other countries, but - like on Wednesday - asserted that in the long-run, Americans would be better off due to his protectionist actions.

Speaking on WABC Radio's “Bernie & Sid in the Morning’’ program, Trump said "I’m not saying there won’t be a little pain so we might lose a little of it but we’re going to have a much stronger country when we’re finished, and that’s what I’m all about.’

"We have to do things that other people wouldn’t do. So we may take a hit, but you know what, ultimately we’re going to be much stronger for it,’’ Trump said during the radio interview on Friday. “It’s something we had to do, and ultimately if you take a look it’s not only trade with China - it’s everybody."

Exactly, that's what I meant. Americans may be forced to re-industrialize or face third world consequences. And there are risks and sacrifices to make (such as higher commodity prices, a slow down of imports which could cause some shortages, etc.) But if we continue the status quo we will see an end to the US dollar anyway and be faced with a DE-industrialized third world nation and that could be even worse in the long-term.

Trump is a traditionalist who is likely conned (like many people are) thinking "Israel is our greatest ally" when in reality they have driven us into endless wars and debt to maintain their Zionist Empire as they try occupying more land. I don't think Trump wants to destroy the US for Israel's sake but he is certainly an ass kisser of ZOG.

But back to the point of the news article, my belief is he is trying to break up this global economic system via trade war to force America to change our economic policies which will hurt us in the short-term but benefit us long-term.

And if anyone thinks the status quo of outsourcing our industries and increasing the welfare state is working out well for us then they have their heads up their asses because no, its not working out well and it is leading to the death of the middle class and the end of having a decent income outside of some cushy government position.

The fact that he's stupid, was bankrupted 6 times and never pulled himself out as he claims (financial support from his friends every time, including Saudi scab Al-Waleed) and his dumbfuckery plus Zionist ankle grabbing may very well bankrupt America causing it to collapse, does not mean Yiddsrael follows.

Communist Government Arrested US Journalist, Federal Trial Could Have Massive Implications on Free Press Reader 04/07/2018 (Sat) 18:14:40 Id: c7a9cd [Preview] No. 7864 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It began as a $280 citation for using a video camera in a courthouse.

But to Gary Gileno, at stake was much more than the couple hundred bucks he was told to pay.

An attorney for the anti-illegal immigration activist and prolific YouTuber told a judge Friday that the four-hour trial over the fine was really about preventing government abuse of power, protecting the rights of journalists and ensuring that citizens can hold public officials accountable.

"If he is convicted … it'll chill speech, it'll chill journalism, it'll say the federal government has a superpower to do whatever it wants," attorney William Becker said. "This is unprecedented. This is what we expect to see in a police state."

The unusual legal battle came after Gileno, 32, tried to bring a video camera into a meeting of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission last year. California law specifically allows the public to use recording devices at such meetings, but the commission's meeting in August was held at a federal appellate court building where filming is prohibited.

The commission, a civilian panel set up to monitor the Sheriff's Department and listen to public concerns about the agency, had been gathering in different locations around the county since it began meeting in January 2017. This was the first time commissioners had met at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals building in Pasadena.

As Gileno entered the courthouse, deputy U.S. marshals told him he had to leave his camera in his car. Gileno insisted he had a right to record the meeting under the First Amendment and the state's open meetings law, known as the Brown Act, and began filming the officers.

USSA's Societal Breakdown Quickens As New Fads Include Eating Toxic Tide Pods And Sniffing Condoms Reader 04/05/2018 (Thu) 23:42:23 Id: c790a7 [Preview] No. 7814 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
When I first heard about kids eating Tide pods — which, admittedly, was not that long ago — I was stunned, of course, but shook it off as just the latest sign of American pop-culture decay that has been trending the wrong way for decades.

I’ve been rewarded for my callousness by something even more shocking to my psyche: Kids snorting condoms.

Not even kidding.

“The exact origin of this trend is unknown,” notes The Free Thought Project, “but in recent weeks teens across the country have been snorting condoms and putting the footage on YouTube to catch their 15 minutes of fame — or perhaps 15 minutes of shame.”

YouTube. Naturally. You can’t learn about various historical, political, or social issues from a conservative standpoint on YouTube without having that content “restricted,” but you can watch an idiot teenager inhale a condom up his or her nose all day long and no one sees anything wrong with that, apparently.

Search the term “condom challenge,” says The Free Thought Project, and you’ll bring up more than 770,000 results on the social media platform.

And no, I’m not going to add one to this story; if you really want to see a kid snort a condom, well, I just told you where to go online and how to find the videos. You’ll have lots to choose from.

But The Free Though Project describes the act itself:

In the stunt, a teen takes a condom up one nostril and attempt to pull it out of their mouth or out of the other nostril. This is actually a trick that has been performed by professionals in sideshows for generations. However, none of these kids are professionals and many of them are getting sick and risking permanent damage to their bodies.

There should be an IQ requirement to vote (based on basic math, cultural history, science, linguistics and puzzle solving). If you don't have an average IQ of 100 you could not vote. Also, they need to make another law: if you do not pay taxes or work, you can't vote either (retired people could still vote because they earned their right by working most of their lives). This way hardworking taxpayers can decide who is 'worthy' of being elected.

This would remove all the welfare queens and ebt leaches, as well as a percentage of the millennial and Z gen who like eating toxic waste and partying all the time (which kills their brain cells no doubt).

It takes a smart voter base to understand this though, so we can start voting in grassroot candidates not under control or under (((foreign))) influence and thus replacing establishment incumbents in at least one if not both political parties. If you have a massively dumbed down voter base they will continue to vote the establishment incumbents back in, or be tricked into voting for fake "nationalists" who only want to line their pockets.

When good people give up completely then the bad people easily take over. Just remember that when the coming "blue wave" comes for your guns, threatening to fine or imprison you if you resist. We need true patriots infiltrating BOTH parties and we need smart voters electing them in office. That is how we can take our country back.

US Govt Wasted $60 Million on Inoperable Afghan Power System, While US Infrastructure Crumbles At Home Reader 04/07/2018 (Sat) 14:38:52 Id: 03c237 [Preview] No. 7851 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The U.S. government has spent an estimated $60 million on a high-voltage power system in Afghanistan that remains inoperable because people still reside along the transmission line route, and turning it on “presents life and safety hazards,” an audit by an American watchdog agency found.

In a report released on Thursday, the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) attributes the system’s problems to “mismanagement” by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in charge of the project.

John Sopko, the head of SIGAR, writes that the agency has paid the Afghan contractor it hired for the project, Zwakman Nabizai Construction Company (ZNCC), an additional $98,000 to ensure the power plant and equipment are locked up and disabled due to safety concerns.

SIGAR reports:

Although [the power system] has been built, USACE’s mismanagement of the contract has resulted in the U.S. government spending almost $60 million on a power transmission project that is not operational because land-acquisition and right-of- way issues have not been resolved, and there was no contract provision to permanently connect the system to a power source.

In addition, the [power] system may be structurally unsound and pose a risk to Afghans who live near transmission towers and lines, or work in the Gulbahar substation.

Despite the USACE’s “ethical concerns with handing over [the power system] to the Afghan government because they are aware that they are handing over an electrical system that presents life and safety hazards,” the U.S. military “transferred it” to Kabul in February of this year.

As of November of last year, Kabul had failed to acquire any of the privately held land needed for the system, known as North East Power System Phase III (NEPS III).

Private owners hold “about 68 percent of the total required for NEPS III,” the inspector general points out, adding:

Bahrain Discovers Largest Oil Field With 80 Billion Barrels In Reserves Reader 04/05/2018 (Thu) 14:48:10 Id: 6e3821 [Preview] No. 7805 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Bahrain officials have revealed that the tiny gulf kingdom has discovered some 80 billion barrels of shale (otherwise known as tight) oil - the kingdom's largest oil and gas find ever. The field also discovered 14 trillion cubic feet of natural gas beneath an existing field.

Oil Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said the kingdom has not yet determined how much of the oil can be easily extracted, according to the Associated Press.

The oil fields were discovered in the offshore Khalij al-Bahrain Basin, which covers some 770 square miles in the shallow waters off Bahrain's west coast.

The underwater shale would dwarf the country's existing reserves.

According to figures from the US Energy Administration, Bahrain currently pumps about 45,000 barrels a day from its Bahrain Field. It also shares income from a deposit with Saudi Arabia that produces about 300,000 barrels a day.

"Initial analysis demonstrates the find is at substantial levels, capable of supporting the long-term extraction of tight oil and deep gas," the Sheikh said.

He added during the news conference, which was held in Manama on Wednesday, that Bahrain's National Oil and Gas Authority hoped to lure foreign oil and gas firms to develop the field where the reserves were found, per the BBC.

Bahrain has been pumping oil since 1932 and was among the first Arab Gulf states to extract oil.

According to the Guardian, industry consultants DeGolyer and MacNaughton (Demac) have worked with Bahrain to evaluate the newfound reserves.
