Top Russian Politician Says Erdogan Told Him Turkey Will Leave NATO, Ally With Russia (Zhirinovsky)

from Russia Insider:

Vladimir Zhirinovsky is the Western media’s favorite Russian politician to hate. He is known for his many outspoken opinions.

In the context of the following story, it is interesting to note that Zhirinovsky specialized in Turkish language and literature at Moscow State University’s Institute of Oriental Studies.

Pentagon Deploys US Forces to Defend Saudi Oil

by Jason Ditz, The Anti Media:

(ANTIWAR.COM) — The latest US military buildup into the Middle East was announced today, fresh off the Trump Administration’s briefing on “options” for responding to Iran. The Pentagon is announcing they will be deploying more US forces in the area around Saudi oil facilities.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper says Trump has approved the deployment already, and that it will be focused primarily on air and missile defense systems, at the request of Saudi Arabia.

Houthi Attack on Saudi Oil Fields – a False Flag?

by Peter Koenig, New Eastern Outlook:

On Saturday morning, September 14, 2019, a few drones – were they drones or long-range missiles? – hit the Saudis most important two oil fields, set them ablaze, apparently knocking out half of the Saudi crude production – but measured in terms of world production it is a mere 5%. Could be made up in no time by other Gulf oil producers – or indeed, as the Saudis said, by the end of September 2019 their production is back to ‘normal’ – to pre-attack levels.

The financial reaction was immediate. Saudi stocks fell, the oil prices rose, then settled and later fell again. It was an immediate reaction of major banks’ algorithmic speculation with about 10,000 operational hits a second. A trial for larger things to come?

Adams warns: Authoritarians are racing to take away your liberties before the coming debt collapse

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Are you baffled by the sudden aggressiveness of the push to confiscate your guns and silence your voice? Why are both the First and Second Amendments under such seemingly desperate assault by authoritarian tyrants?

The answer is that people in high places know that a global debt collapse is on the verge of breaking out, and when the chaos comes, they don’t want the masses to be able to speak out or fight back.

The Fed’s “Emergency” Actions this Week Were Dated 48 Days Earlier

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

The storyline in the business press is that the lending rate on overnight repos had spiked to an unprecedented 10 percent, necessitating an emergency infusion of $53 billion by the New York Fed on Tuesday to ramp up liquidity for overnight loans and bring down the loan rate. (That was followed with $75 billion more on Wednesday, Thursday and today – raising the question that if the money is going to the same banks, isn’t that a term loan, not an overnight loan? We don’t know, however, if the money is going to the same banks because the Fed, as it did during the 2008 financial crisis, is staying mum about where the money is going.)

Whistleblower Complaint Now Looks Like Democrat Effort to Protect Joe Biden from Investigation…

from The Conservative Treehouse:

The mysterious “whistleblower” case now looks like a coordinated Democrat effort to block any investigation of presidential candidate Joe Biden for corrupt pressure on Ukraine to drop the investigation of Burisma, an energy company operating in the country, on which his son Hunter Biden was a board member.

In March 2016, then Vice-President Joe Biden warned Ukraine that $1 billion in loan guarantees would be withheld by the U.S. unless they replaced Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general who was investigating Hunter Biden.  Ukraine did remove Shokin, and the prosecution was dropped.  It looks like a clear case of a quid-pro-quo.

CHILLING REPORT REVEALS THAT JUST A HANDFUL OF MEGA CORPORATIONS CONTROL THE FATE OF THE WORLD

by Isaac Davis, The Waking Times:

So much of dystopian science fiction stories feature an all-knowing, all-powerful private corporation as the dominant authority in a tyrannic and soulless world. According to a new study, this vision of the future isn’t all that fictional, as trans-national corporations (TNC’s) are growing at an alarming pace, rapidly consolidating control over major industries, and creating a new type of super-governance in our world.

LBMA Removes JP Morgan’s Michael Nowak from the LBMA Board

by Ronan Manly, BullionStar:

Just when you think it couldn’t get any more embarrassing for JP Morgan’s precious metals business and its embattled head, Michael Nowak, today it just did, as the powerful London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) moved to oust Nowak, who has become too toxic, from the LBMA’s board of directors.

According to the Financial Times, 20 September 2019:

“The London Bullion Market Association has removed Michael Nowak, JPMorgan’s head of precious metals trading, from its board after he was indicted by the US Department of Justice for a “massive, multiyear scheme” to manipulate the precious metals markets. 

“In light of the ongoing investigation by the Department of Justice, the LBMA, under the terms of its Articles of Association, has removed Mr Nowak from its board,” the LBMA said.

Media Ignores Explosive New Spygate Developments – Do Or Die Time Rapidly Approaches As Americans Will Find Out Once And For All If The ‘Deep State’ Is Above The Law

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

When the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) released their report on the misconduct of former FBI Director James Comey, showing that he had violated FBI and DOJ regulations regarding his memos of his conversations with President Trump, as well as leaking memos to a friend for the sole purpose of having them handed over to the media, we at ANP argued that violating department policy was not a crime that could be prosecuted in a court of law with guaranteed success.

The Deep State Is Dragging Trump Into War With Iran

by Robert Bridge, Strategic Culture:

Should we chalk it up to coincidence theory that just days after Trump gives John Bolton the boot as his National Security Adviser, Iran is blamed for an attack on a Saudi oil facility, forcing Washington to forego any hope of peace with Tehran?

One day before Bolton’s abrupt departure from the White House, Trump had reportedly discussed with his security advisers the possibility of easing sanctions on Tehran in an effort to create the “right conditions” for a possible meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations later this month.
