McMaster: US Prepared to Launch ‘Preventative War’ Against North Korea

by Jason Ditz, The Anti Media:

Continuing to hype the threat posed by North Korea, despite their two ICBM tests being eventually conceded to both be failures, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster insisted that the US is fully prepared to launch a “preventative war” against North Korea, to prevent them threatening the US.

The threat is with heavily fictionalized versions of North Korea’s missile program, but McMaster appeared undeterred about the war, saying he wasn’t going to confirm if North Korea really had missiles that could reach the US, before incredibly adding “I mean how much does that matter?”

One would think it matters a lot, since estimates are that a war with North Korea could kill in excess of a million people, destroy large portions of South Korea’s capital of Seoul, and create a region-wide refugee problem in Eastern Asia.

McMaster acknowledged that the war would be “costly,” but again that didn’t appear to separate his assessment that the US is preparing to attack North Korea “preemptively” to destroy a missile program that largely doesn’t work would be a legitimate use of force, saying it would depend on the legal justifications US officials manage to put together.

VEGAN CAFE CHARGES MEN AN 18{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} TAX TO ADDRESS DEBUNKED “PAY GAP”

Handsome Her owner Alex O’Brien (left)

The feminist and vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is charging male customers an extra 18 percent “man tax” to eat at her cafe.  But her misandry doesn’t end there. She also is giving women priority seating at the vegan restaurant, regardless of which patron walked in first.

Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website, “I do want people to think about it because we’ve had this [pay discrepancy] for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds. I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit.”

It is also alienating half of population as customers because intelligent humans (regardless of gender) don’t intentionally pay 18{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} more simply because of the gender they had literally no say in when being born. Of course, feminists don’t think of it that way. Oh, and the “wage gap” has been thoroughly debunked.

O’Brien also has her sexist rules up on a board for all to see.  Take note of #3.  The irony is so strong here, it could cure everyone on earth of anemia.

The restaurant is also incredibly proud of their “vulva stones” and “period sticker packs.” No description needed; just let your imagination run wild on that one.

China prepares for war against India – Both are nuclear powers

by Kit Daniels, via Intellihub:

Major territorial disputes between both countries

Two nuclear powers, China and India, may soon go to war over the disputed Doklam area, state-run Chinese media reported.

The Doklam area, which lies on the ill-defined border between Bhutan and China, was taken over by India in June when its soldiers stopped the Chinese military from building a road in the region, which is remote, treacherous and sparsely populated.

“India’s recklessness has shocked the Chinese,” the Global Times stated. “…Over the past month, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been on the move. We believe that the PLA has made sufficient preparation for military confrontation.”

“Indian border troops are no rival to PLA field forces.”

“If a war spreads, the PLA is perfectly capable of annihilating all Indian troops in the border region,” the article added.

India had entered the disputed region by an invitation from Bhutan, but now China may try to force the Indian military out of Doklam within the next two weeks.

The conflict stems from a long-standing territorial dispute between the two nuclear powers due to conflicting treaties regarding its shared 2500 mile border.

India is claiming over 150,000 square miles of territory controlled by China whereas China claims nearly 350,000 square miles of Indian-controlled land.

To put it into perspective, the state of Montana is a little over 147,000 square miles whereas Venezuela is around 340,000 square miles.

Since June, Chinese and Indian soldiers have faced each other “eyeball to eyeball” on a de facto frontline.

If the hostility continues – and there’s no signs of it stopping – it’ll place President Trump in a challenging situation as he continues to lean on China’s influence over North Korea to stop the hermit kingdom from starting a war of its own.

China and India have at least 250 and 100 nuclear weapons respectively.

America, Erased from the World Stage

0

by Gordon Duff, New Eastern Outlook:

During July 2017, President Trump made two very odd public addresses. One was to the Boys Scout Jamboree in West Virginia and the other to a police audience on Long Island, New York. One thing was made clear during both addresses. President Trump is, at best, emotionally immature, highly insecure and just not very bright.

The media jumped on these speeches, pulling dozens of childish quotes, so many things, bitter angry statements, sophomoric whining, even a call for police to engage in extra-legal vigilante justice.

Trump has forgotten that the 100 million military assault rifles owned by those that voted for him were purchased out of fear of “out of control” police rather than terrorists or minority gangs. Anyone who doesn’t know this, knows nothing about America and its history.

The underlying problem is that Trump is exactly what he appears to be, a childish and unstable individual devoid of talent, be it physical or intellectual, an accident of nature, a victim of a “perfect storm” as it were, now the most powerful man on earth.

It was going to happen eventually, perhaps we were all due.

Summers in Washington are miserable, hot and muggy. The city should never have been built, certainly not as the capitol of a would-be major nation. Though those who believe they rule the world from Washington believe they are surrounded by majesty and are the awe of the world, the Washington DC of Andrew Jackson’s time is still alive and well, mosquitoes, the smell of garbage and the armies of sycophants and petty hucksters drawn to the public trough to feed on public revenue.

This is the Washington occasionally visited by President Trump between golf outings, one he understands little of and one that understands even less of him. You see, both are broken, perhaps equally so.

The Trump presidency came at a time when America had reached a constitutional impasse. In 2000, the Supreme Court had chosen a president, something expressly prohibited through both separation of powers and equal protections provisions of the American constitution.

Then in 2005, the court, in a decision in the case of Citizens United v. U.S., overturned all campaign finance limitations and, in one fell swoop, made corporations full citizens with all inherent rights but with one glaring exception. Corporations don’t die and they can’t go to jail.

The same court had already allowed race based redistricting of congress guaranteeing the Republican party permanent control no matter how few votes they got.

Thus, with a controlled Supreme Court willing to overrule the constitution at will and a rigged congress guaranteeing that no president could change the makeup of the court, as we saw with Obama, an oligarchical system was permanently enthroned in Washington, renting out government to special interests.

When the Obama presidency is examined, its caretaker nature, it must be taken into account that congress and the Supreme Court, both now above the electoral process permanently, could nullify any presidential initiative.

When we look at the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare” as it is often termed, the flawed compromise that mandates insurance for most Americans and also simultaneously enriches the powerful insurance companies we have to admit it was only enacted because it enriches the powerful insurance company lobby. This is why republicans supported it and why it still survives. President Trump failed to note that his plans to scrap the Act in actuality placed him in direct opposition to some of his largest backers, the powerful insurance lobby.

The other issue that needs addressing is election rigging. When examining any conspiratorial event, and in today’s world “conspiracies” are everywhere, real or imagined, we always first look at who benefits most. In the 2016 election, Russia stands accused of helping rig the election for Trump, though the source of the evidence used to support this supposition is not so clear.

In fact, a closer examination tends to point the finger at others, the military industrial complex, the major financial institutions or even the powerful Israelo-Saudi lobby in Washington. Russia’s gains under Trump are minimal at best and the risks to Russia’s security with an uncertain and weak leader who has turned his defense policy over to the hawkish Pentagon, are very high.

In fact, there is much to be examined in the degree Washington has overlooked Trump’s extreme ineptitude. Might it well be that while Trump “tweets” and buffoons his days away, the looting of America is hitting high gear?

The “special interest” disease in Washington is more than climate denialism and minority bashing. Public lands are being given to powerful interests at a record rate, protections against poisoned food, water, air and drugs are dissolving as well as are protections from the financial scamsters that crashed the economy in 2007.

While Russia is supposedly benefitting, new sanctions have hit that nation and America’s military is threatening war with Russia’s key allies, China and Iran.

If the Trump presidency was a boon to Russia, the payoff is a scanty one at best.

Let us juxtapose Obama and Trump for a second. If Obama was a “caretaker” what can we call Trump? Is America in freefall? Is it a ship adrift as many have inferred, with no one at the helm?

To this we might add a short note on reality and perception. If reality is defined by perception and all perception is controlled through media, then those who control media control reality. This means, of course, that with a “reality TV” star in the White House, the media darling of America’s intellectual underclass, the concept of reality itself fails.

Hiroshima: A “Military Base” according to President Harry Truman

0

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

The dangers of nuclear war are not an object of debate and analysis by the mainstream media.

Public opinion is carefully misled. ” All options on the table”.  Nuclear weapons are portrayed as peace-making bombs.

Did you know that tactical nuclear weapons or so-called mininukes with an explosive capacity between one third and six times a Hiroshima bomb are considered, according to scientific opinion, on contract to the Pentagon as “harmless to the surrounding civilian population because the explosion is underground”.

It’s a lie.

The US has a vast nuclear arsenal capable of blowing up the planet several times.

The World commemorates the 72nd anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 6, 9, 1945)

Did you know that  Hiroshima was a “military base”, and that when the first atomic bomb was dropped on two of Japan’s heavily populated area in August 1945, the objective was, according to president Truman was to save the lives of innocent civilians.

“The World will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians..”(President Harry S. Truman in a radio speech to the Nation, August 9, 1945).

[Note: the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945; the Second on Nagasaki, on August 9, on the same day as Truman’s radio speech to the Nation]

(Listen to Audio of Truman’s speech, Hiroshima audio video)

Unpunished crimes against humanity, “collateral damage”.

In the words of President Harry Truman:

“We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark…. This weapon is to be used against Japan … [We] will use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital or the new. …  The target will be a purely military one… It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful.”

To this date, the US government has not apologized to the people of Japan, nor has the mainstream media acknowledged that Harry Truman was a liar and a criminal.

Truman’s July 25 diary entry (see above), suggests that he was not aware that Hiroshima was a city. Had he been misled by his advisers that Hiroshima was a military base and that it was ok to bomb, or was he lying to himself? Was he stupid and uneducated? Everybody in the high ranks of the military knew that Hiroshima was a populated urban area with approximately 350,000 inhabitants (1945).

Maxine Waters’ Tax Filings Lead Reporter “Down A Rabbit Hole” – Where Does She Get Her Money?

0

by Onan Coca, Freedom Outpost:

Bloomberg reporter Anna Massoglia recently “fell down a rabbit hole” when she began looking at California Democrat Maxine Waters’ recent tax filings.

Massoglia stared at the paperwork for hours and simply could not make the math work.

Between high priced dinners, paying her daughter exorbitant amounts, and paying for big fundraising events it seemed that Rep. Waters should be broke… but she’s not.

Waters seems to be swimming in cash, which is odd because her individual donations for the year were less than $15K!

In fact, Waters spent $5K for a fundraising dinner, which seems like a waste of money considering she only raised $15K for the entire year. This is a highly unusual imbalance and one that probably deserves a lot more scrutiny.

We’ve talked about Maxine Waters odd money before (herehere, and here), and Congress has been concerned about it in the past too.

This is a woman who has been named “Most Corrupt in Congress” on 4 separate occasions by a non-partisan watchdog.

Sadly as of yet, no one has done much digging into the Congresswoman’s financial dealings.

Maybe that should change?

The UNITED States Is On the Verge of Extinction-Death by Secession

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

America is being torn apart. The nation is disintegrating into self-serving regionalism. Presently in America, there is a globalist inspired effort to destroy the United States from within.

Nixon’s 10 FEMA Regions

In the modern era, the breakup of the United States first appeared in Richard Nixon’s division of America into 10 FEMA Regions. This is becoming a rough draft model for the planned break-up of the United States.

Forty eight hours ago, I made the following video which demonstrated how over 20{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the country is close to breaking away from the Federal government.

Upon further research, I have determined that over half the country is involved in a movement of type or another that wishes to withdraw from the Union. I have also determined that many George Soros’ organizations are involved in many, if not all of these movements.

The Last Obstacle to Global Totalitarianism

America has a Constitution guaranteeing individual liberties over the power of the government. America has millions of freedom-minded citizens. And very importantly, America has a citizenry armed with over 300 million hand guns which complements the fact that America has 7 million veterans of fighting age. For America to fall and for globalism to succeed, America must be broken apart.

For the New World Order to succeed, America must be eliminated as a ge0-political entity. The secessionist movements across the country are a George Soros movement along these lines designed to lead to the breakup of the United States.

The strategy of each movement is very similar in which the hatred and extreme disenchantment that the public has for the Federal government becomes the impetus for withdrawal. These movements are pro-New World Order and will lead to the elimination of much of the resistance that the American people will mount against the Deep State and their international banking allies of the Rothschild banking cartel.

Secession Has Always Been a Part of American History

A secession sentiment has been building in various states for decades in some cases. In the spring 2016, 22 local Republican conventions in Texas expressed their support for a statewide referendum on whether or not Texas should leave the union. Texas movers and shakers in the party struck the resolution from the convention agenda, but it was still an impressive showing, but it served as a sign of things to come. Interestingly, Texas seceded from Mexico in 1835 and formed an independent republic as the precedent was set and secession sentiment in Texas seems to be alive and well nearly 175 years later. s being rekindled as it is happening all across the country. George Soros has his fingerprints all over these movements.

The most notable secession movement occurred prior to the Civil War, which was started by the North after 11 pro-slavery Southern states seceded and formed the Confederate States of America. The North may have won the war, but its consequences continue to play out in our national politics, with the South being the most conservative region on the country, it is a present hotbed of secessionist sentiment.

None of these movements are legal as in 1869, in Texas v. White, the Supreme Court ruled unilateral secession unconstitutional. But that hasn’t stopped dozens of states from pursuing their own movements.

Scientists conclude the “97{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} consensus” climate change hoax is backfiring, and they are really, really concerned that the public hasn’t swallowed the lie

by Jayson Vele, Natural News:

If you’ve ever debated climate change with a leftist or an environmentalist, chances are you’ve heard the one talking point that is repeated more than all the others: That 97 percent of scientists agree that human activity is playing a significant role in the warming of our planet. While the left routinely uses this talking point to bolster their argument and make it sound as though they are more in touch with the scientific community than their political counterpart, the reality is that this “97 percent” figure has been debunked time and time again.

According to an expert commentary published last month in Environmental Communication, climate change campaigns that focus on convincing people that there is a scientific consensus on the issue are likely to backfire. Maybe now the left will rethink their strategy and actually look at the facts, rather than continuously spread the myth that 97 percent of scientists agree on the impact of man-made climate change.

The six authors of the commentary note that the messaging strategy has generated much confusion over whether or not consensus extends to the various effects of climate change such as extreme weather or rising sea levels. Instead of ending the debate on climate change, the repeated talking point that 97 percent of climate scientists agree has only lead to more debate and more division on the matter, not less.

The authors also explain that there is much debate over whether or not consensus messaging is effective enough to win over hearts and minds. In the past, social scientists have challenged the idea that the consensus messaging strategy changes the attitudes of the public, which would mean that constantly using the 97 percent figure to argue that climate change is caused by human activity is completely pointless.

Of course, consensus messaging isn’t the only strategy that the left uses to advance their radical environmental agenda. Whenever they get a chance, liberals in the mainstream media, in Hollywood and in Washington DC use scare tactics to generate fear over what will supposedly happen unless we take immediate action to combat climate change. They tell us that the polar bears are dying as a result of increasing global temperatures, even though polar bear numbers are actually on the rise. They told us that the Arctic sea ice would be completely melted by September 2016, which of course turned out not to be true. They’ve been telling us for years that ocean levels would rise and flood U.S. cities, but that too turned out to be nothing more than a scare tactic.

But regardless of whether their strategy is consensus messaging or scare tactics, one thing we know for sure is that the left is hell-bent on convincing the public that climate change is a real and immediate threat to our world. But why would they work so hard and for so long just to sell the people a lie?

According to former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer, it’s all about the redistribution of wealth. “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy,” he said. “This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.”

Edenhofer went on to admit, “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” Just five years prior to making this comment, Edenhofer said that “The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

Indeed, climate change was never about the environment. Rather, it is a vehicle used by the left to advance their radical, redistributive agenda. By making comments like “97 percent of scientists agree that humans are contributing to climate change” and through the use of scare tactics, the left has convinced millions of Americans that the only way to avoid our imminent doom is to surrender our liberty and massively expand the size of the government – the progressive’s idea of utopia.

Silicon Valley “Outraged” After Google Employee Pens Viral Doc Slamming “Anti-Conservative” Culture

0

from ZeroHedge:

A 10-page document penned by an unnamed Google engineer titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber“, that criticizes the company’s “left leaning”, “anti-conservative” culture and calls for replacing Google’s diversity initiatives with policies that encourage “ideological diversity” instead, has led to outrage among fellow Google employees and Silicon Valley pundits. The document, first reported by Motherboard and published in full by Gizmodo, reportedly has gone “internally viral” inside the company on Friday according to CNBC. The engineer’s identity has not been revealed, but he reports to Google VP Ari Balogh, listed on Crunchbase as the company’s executive VP of storage infrastructure products.

The document’s author also wrote that employees with conservative political beliefs are discriminated against at Google and lamented about how “leftist” ideology is harmful. They argue that the company should have a more “open” culture where their viewpoint would be welcomed. The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.

Motherboard said it had independently confirmed with multiple Google employees that the document is being widely shared among many of the company’s software engineering teams: “If I had to guess, almost every single woman in engineering has seen it,” a current employee told Motherboard. At several points on Friday night, the document was inaccessible because too many people were attempting to view it concurrently.

But what has prompted the ire of both internal and external pundits is the document’s argument that differences in pay between men and women in the technology sector are not entirely related to bias against women, but are partly attributable to biological differences between the genders. It also called on Google to “stop alienating conservatives” and calls into question practices like “unconscious bias” training for committees that promote employees.

The 10-page Google Doc document was met with furious derision from a large majority of employees but Jaana Dogan, a software engineer at Google, tweeted that some people at the company at least partially agreed with the author; one of our sources said the same. While the document itself contains the thoughts of just one Google employee, the context in which they were shared — Silicon Valley has been repeatedly exposed as a place that discriminates against women and people of color — as well as the private and public response from its workforce are important.

Why Does The Left Hate Us So Much?

1

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Ever since I decided to run for Congress, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how divided our nation is.  Donald Trump has become the most hated person in America, earlier this year a gunman tried to kill as many Republican members of Congress as possible at a baseball field in Virginia, and the mainstream media is fueling more hatred for conservatives on a daily basis.  I think that I was more than a bit naive in thinking that I wouldn’t be caught up in all of this when I decided to run for public office.  It has only been about a month, and so far I have been slandered repeatedly, my wife and daughter have been called all sorts of names, and even our faith has been attacked.  I have never seen the left so energized in my entire lifetime, but meanwhile those of us that are trying to move the United States in a more conservative direction are facing an uphill battle when it comes to raising funds.  If you believe that people like me should be running for Congress, I hope that you will support my campaign financially.  Since there is no incumbent running in my district, the race is completely wide open, and if I raise enough money I will win because I have the strongest message by a very wide margin.

So far we have created a tremendous amount of buzz all over the district.  On Friday I was down in Coeur d’Alene, and there are some wonderful conservative people down there that are super excited that I am running.  Everywhere we go we are finding that voters are resonating with my extremely conservative message, and if I have enough resources to get this message to every voter in the district, there is no way that I should lose this race.

But of course not everybody is pleased by all the buzz I am creating.

If I win this election, I am very rapidly going to become one of the most hated members of Congress in the entire country.  And the reason why I will be hated so much is because I will be what the left fears the most – a conservative with a backbone.

In the end, this is not a battle about tax rates, the size of government or how to fix our economy.  All of those are very important issues, but at the core this is a fight for the soul of our nation.

Over the past 100 years, we have seen big government leftists take power all over the world.  The “progressives” of today are driven by the same philosophies and are using the same tactics as the communists of the USSR, the brownshirts of Nazi Germany (Nazi: National Socialists), and the Maoists of Red China.  At this moment the “progressives” dominate most of the political systems on the entire planet, and they would love to fully take control of the United States as well, but there are enough of us that still love liberty and freedom to stand in their way.

In leftist societies, big government rapidly becomes the centerpiece of society.  And that is one reason why so many of these big government systems are so godless, because government essentially takes the place of God over time.

Two diametrically opposed worldviews are clashing in our country right now, and eventually one of those worldviews will be vanquished by the other.

For those of us that still believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the “progressives” of today are an existential threat.  If the left gets enough power, they will criminalize what we believe by making it “hate speech”.  Sadly, this is already starting to happen in local communities all over America.  And online, a number of social media companies have been making a renewed effort to censor conservative voices in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory last November.  They see how powerful the alternative media has become and they want to shut us up.

Unfortunately, I am seeing a lot of apathy among conservatives right now.  They seem to think that the battle is over because we got Donald Trump into the White House.  What they don’t understand is that the battle is just beginning.  We need people to stand up and fight like never before, and this is something that I talk about in my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”.  If America does not change direction immediately, there isn’t going to be an America.

And actually that is going to be one of my major themes when I speak at Pastor Benjamin Faircloth’s church in Lavonia, Georgia later in August.  The “What’s Next Prophecy Conference” will be held on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th, and it will also be available online for those that are not able to make it in person…
