Former congressman Ron Paul has lashed out at the resolution the House passed against Russia, branding it “one of the worst pieces of legislation ever.” It could even pave the way for a potential war with Russia, as it was with Iraq, he warns.
Resolution 758 strongly condemns the actions of Russia under Vladimir Putin, for what it describes as a policy of “aggression against neighboring countries,” in a motion that describes Moscow’s political and economic domination in the region.
However, Ron Paul says the bill was nothing but “16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush.”
Speaking to RT, Paul added that the resolution was “part of the war propaganda machine.”
“It’s this kind of stuff that stirs up trouble. I’d rather dissipate the problems and have our government tone the rhetoric down a little bit. This was terrible; this was just a very provocative resolution,” he said.

Late last week, I came across a fascinating article published at Mondoweiss highlighting a recent study positing that Hilary Clinton may have lost the election to Donald Trump partly as a result of her well documented lust for imperial war and aggression.
Here are a few excerpts from the piece:
An important new study has come out showing that Clinton paid for this arrogance: professors argue that Clinton lost the battleground states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan in last year’s presidential election because they had some of the highest casualty rates during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and voters there saw Clinton as the pro-war candidate.

In the build-up to the G20 summit in Hamburg, there was much happy talk coming from Trans-Atlantic government officials, Central bankers and the media about the arrival of the long-awaited “economic recovery.” From Brussels, European Central Bank (ECB) chairman Mario Draghi sounded cautiously optimistic, telling European Union leaders on June 23 that the EU is experiencing economic growth and an “improving business climate”, while ECB Executive Board member Peter Praet was much less constrained. In a meeting of bankers in Paris on July 6, he declared that the recovery “has gathered some further momentum recently,” and that there is a “solid upswing” becoming an “increasingly solid cyclical recovery.”

Zepp-LaRouche: If Trump, Putin and Xi Work Together, the World Can Move Away from the Abyss and Towards a New Paradigm
from LaRouche PAC:
The G20 meeting held in Hamburg, Germany on July 7-8 did not produce anything resembling the kind of policy initiatives required to defeat the deadly crisis facing humanity, and the trans-Atlantic sector in particular. It did not address the global financial crisis, with its $1.5 quadrillion in bankrupt derivatives speculation. It did not discuss implementing a global Glass-Steagall policy, nor a Hamiltonian credit system, which alone can reverse the deadly collapse of the Western physical economies, as Lyndon LaRouche has conclusively shown in his Four Laws. Nor did it pose the issue of replacing geopolitics and war with a new approach to global relations. So in that sense, the G20 summit fell completely short of what it should have accomplished.
But a very positive outcome—in fact, breakthrough strategic progress—did emerge from that summit, largely as a result of a set of history-making bilateral meetings held on the sidelines of the summit, particularly the productive meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin—despite every effort by the British Empire and its American allies to stop it from happening.

The German publication DWN has come out and warned that the German Pensions system is collapsing. They wrote:
The core problem of the German economy and society is miserable demography. A positive development, namely the increasing longevity of the population, is an extremely negative groundbreaking, namely a small number of children. This is reflected in one of the lowest birth rates in the world – and this has been the case for decades. The record-breaking birth rate is by no means rooted in a biological, but in deeper social causes and inadequate policies at different stages. One consequence is a pension system that is not sustainably financed , because the ratio of contributors and receivers will drastically deteriorate.
by Adam Garrie, The Duran:
Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has commented on Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Donald Trump after a lengthy debriefing from the Russian President.
Peskov echoed statements from Vladimir Putin who said on Saturday that,
“Mr Trump’s television image is very different from the real person; he is a very down to earth and direct person, and he has an absolutely adequate attitude towards the person he is talking with; he analyses things pretty fast and answers the questions he is asked or new ones that arise in the course of the discussion. So I think that if we build our relations in the vein of our yesterday’s meeting, there are good reasons to believe that we will be able to revive, at least partially, the level of interaction that we need”.
by James Howard Kunstler, via Russia Insider:
But if Mr. Trump agrees to work with Mr. Putin despite a list of Russian transgressions beginning with the annexation of Crimea and ending with its interference in the 2016 presidential election, he will also look weak while Mr. Putin can claim that he reconstructed the relationship.

America wakes up to astonishing bull tickey from its so-called Newspaper of Record in this lead front-page propaganda dump du jour. Granted, American education has succeeded in destroying the critical faculties of at least three generations so that the public drowns in a soup of unreality every day. In the news business now, as in the national life generally, anything goes and nothing matters.

In the beginning of June 2017, workers brought a solar energy plant online capable of producing 40 megawatts of power.
That’s cool all by itself, but this solar “farm” floats on a manmade lake in China’s Anhui province, and it is the largest floating solar project in the world.
The massive power plant was built by Sungrow Power Supply, and can produce enough energy to power 15,000 homes. The exact size of the operation has not been revealed, but it produces twice as much energy as the previous holder of the largest-floating-solar-plant title, which was launched by Xinyi Solar in 2016.
