During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump ordered the Pentagon to “immediately” establish a “space force” as an independent service branch. As we have highlighted before, the Pentagon is preparing for decades of hybrid wars across multiple domains – space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime – against Russia and China in the 2025-2040 timeframe.
According to an unnamed Russian defense industry source, as quoted by Sputnik News, Russia is developing a new electronic warfare aircraft, which can degrade the effectiveness of American spy satellites or render them entirely useless by using advanced radar jamming technology mounted on the exterior of the plane.
from Voice Of Europe:
Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Minister of the Interior, has warned the EU that his country will no longer be the world’s refugee camp.
“Italy is no longer the refugee camp of the world. There is now a government that protects the interests of its citizens, and now everyone in the EU has realised that we cannot be the only ones to accept migrants,” Salvini said.
While the minister was satisfied with the new EU migrant redistribution plan which spreads migrants throughout Europe, he said that “the objective is to stop them leaving their countries, not the division at a European level”.
SGT REPORT: Harley Schlanger on Trump Triumph and John Brennan as “Dead Man Walking” — Deep State Collapsing and Panicking
by Robert David Steele, Public Intelligence Blog:
John Brennan is a “dead man walking,” metaphorically speaking. He is probably a paid agent of both Saudi Arabia and Israel and could not withstand a proper investigation including a pull of all the NSA data on all his emails and calls as well as a deep look at his domestic and international travel record. He is showing increasing signs of having lost his mental faculties — he is “out of control” and now given to saying things that are not only defamatory lies with malice and knowledge of falsity, but clear indicators that John Brennan is an absolute servant of the Deep State and the 1% and an absolute traitor to the Constitution, the Republic, and the 99%. He is a “dead man walking.” Kudos to the SGT REPORT, in part because he is properly focused on the fact that the US public is waking up. What is missing is the summary execution of the fake news mass media that continues to lie to the public and parrot the John Brennan. Rand Paul is starting to look more and more important. We need a truth channel. Wolf Blitzer needs to be unemployed. This is all good.
I get emails from Trump haters constantly. They tell me that our President is just the flip side of the same globalist coin we would have gotten with Hillary Clinton. But I don’t buy it. And I wonder, is it not even acceptable to highlight and report about the good things President Trump has done? We have been lied to and betrayed for so long that I wonder, are many Americans suffering from some hybrid version of Stockholm syndrome? I take my case to the President himself.

Poisoning enemies has a long history with Augustus Caesar’s wife Livia allegedly a master of the art, as were the Borgias in Renaissance Italy. Lately there has been a resurgence in allegations regarding the use of poisons of various types by several governments. The claims are particularly damaging both morally and legally as international conventions regard the use of poisonous chemical compounds as particularly heinous, condemning their use because they, when employed in quantity, become “weapons of mass destruction,” killing indiscriminately and horribly, making no distinction between combatants and civilians. Their use is considered to be a “war crime” and the government officials who ordered their deployment are “war criminals,” subject to prosecution by the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:
America’s most powerful weapon of war does not shoot, fly or explode. It’s not a submarine, plane, tank or laser. America’s most powerful strategic weapon today is the dollar.
The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies. The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that.
The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries, or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot.

In this report, I want to accomplish two goals. First, I want to come out and admit that I often wonder what it is like to be totally devoid of intelligence and good character and to possess only one paramount and defining trace of good – to be lucky as hell. Secondly, I want to share with you a story that proves once and for all that we are doomed to an eventual cataclysmic meltdown.
Five years now I’ve spent the better part of my day’s gathering, analyzing, and processing news and information about today’s lunatic geopolitical situation. And every day of my stent trying to make sense of the mess we’re in I’ve considered the real enemy – the dotard, atheist, nincompoop on the other end of the globalist narrative who’s been struck by the magic wand of fate. The god of luck, you see, is the real enemy of humankind. Look at Facebook’s Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, for instance. He and his college chums Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes were mystically catapulted into billionaire land on the power of a cheesy website decked out in dull blue that basically emulate MySpace. I was there testing and analyzing the horde of competitors to Facebook, so I am more aware than most of the degree of “luck” these Harvard boys were stricken by. But the warped Disneyland that is the Silicon Valley epic is another story. Today Facebook has been caught in more skullduggery.

The same Socialists who tried their best to keep Trump from getting elected and continue to try to get him impeached after he won.
We have the same anti-American Socialists in Washington and their main media propaganda distributors upset over president Trump’s recent summit with Vladimir Putin over the fact that the president never confronted Putin over election interference during the last election. The same Socialists who tried their best to keep Trump from getting elected and continue to try to get him impeached after he won.

We have to hand it to Putin. He is the best that there is. Note the ease with which he mopped up the floor with that idiot Chris Wallace. https://www.rt.com/usa/433447-putin-interview-fox-wallace/
What is wrong with the US media that it cannot produce a second competent journalist as company for Tucker Carlson? Why are America’s remaining good journalists, such as Chris Hedges, now in the alternate media?
