Recently declassified documents shed light on a U.S. nuclear war plan developed in 1964 by the Pentagon’s Joint Staff to bomb Russia – then the Soviet Union – and China with nuclear weapons so extensively that it would destroy them “as viable societies.” The war plan itself, known as Single Integrated Operational Plan 64 (SIOP-64), has not been declassified, as no SIOP has ever been released to the public by the United States government.
However, newly declassified documents that record the Pentagon Joint Staff’s review of SIOP-64 were recently made available through George Washington University’s National Security Archive project. The documents reveal numerous details about the still-classified plan that shine light on the Pentagon’s willingness to wage nothing short of total war against its adversaries at the time.

Now that President Trump has been 100% exonerated of the ridiculous charge of “colluding with the Russians” to steal our election, it’s time for the architects of this attempted coup and cover-up to answer for their roles in destabilizing the United States of America for 2+ years.
While former President Barack Obama should see the inside of a prison cell for presiding over the worst political scandal in America history, it’s Hillary and her camp of jackals who came up with the scheme to destroy an American President.

CNN, take a bow. You’re being rewarded for putting on a WWE-style spectacle that did nothing to advance a dialogue about gun violence. It was days after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed. The event was held in Broward County, deep in one of the most Democratic counties in the state. It was not friendly territory, but the National Rifle Association’s top spokesperson Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attended, took the verbal abuse, and answered the questions. It was a total anti-gun circus that was nothing more than a platform to bash the NRA, conservatives, and gun owners. Nothing was advanced with this event. The only thing that was confirmed (again) is that the Democratic base is viciously anti-gun, intolerant, and overall totally unhinged.

This picture depicts the life cycle of “ANY” fiat currency with compound interest. This concept is explained thoroughly by Chris Martenson on his web site under the moniker of The Accelerated Crash Course. I recommend everyone read it.

Trump faces mid-month deadlines on whether to renew temporary waivers or restore US sanctions on Iran.
(MEE) — The head of the CIA on Sunday denied his agency had any role in fomenting the recent anti-government protests in Iran but predicted the violent unrest “is not behind us.”
Mike Pompeo, appointed a year ago by US President Donald Trump to head the intelligence agency, told Fox News on Sunday that economic conditions in Iran “are not good.”
“That’s what caused the people to take to the streets,” he said. He blamed what he called Tehran’s “backward-looking” regime for turning a deaf ear to the voices of the people.
Asked about a claim by Iran’s prosecutor general, Mohammad Javad Montazeri, that a CIA official had coordinated with Israel and Saudi Arabia – Iran’s regional rivals – to work with exiled Iranian groups to stir dissent in Iran, Pompeo replied simply: “It’s false.”
“This was the Iranian people – started by them, created by them, continued by them, demanding a better set of living conditions and a break from the theocratic regime.”
Trump has repeatedly tweeted his support for Iranian protesters while castigating the Tehran regime, seizing on the recent unrest to again slam the multiparty nuclear deal with Iran as deeply flawed.
In Iran, "banks are shutting down without any kind of notice, and it’s creating a huge political and economic backlash at a local level." https://t.co/GAfwFxaeUK

Trump faces deadlines around mid-month on whether to renew temporary waivers or restore US sanctions on Iran. In October, Trump refused to certify that Iran was respecting its commitments under the 2015 nuclear accord, but did not reimpose sanctions or abandon the deal itself.
The administration has not revealed its intentions, but the Iran unrest is seen as a possible pretext for blowing up the nuclear accord.
Last week, the US sanctioned five Iranian-based entities it said were owned or controlled by an industrial firm responsible for developing and producing Iran’s solid-propellant ballistic missiles.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin linked the measure to the recent anti-government protests, arguing that Iran ought to spend more on public welfare rather than banned weapons.
The US Congress has been working on legislation aimed at tightening terms of the agreement in ways that might satisfy Trump’s demands, and Pompeo expressed careful optimism that it might succeed.

In his final report in a three-part series, Guccifer 2’s West Coast Fingerprint, the Forensicator discovers evidence that at least one operator behind the Guccifer 2.0 persona worked from the West Coast of the United States.
The Forensicator’s earlier findings stated that Guccifer 2.0’s NGP-VAN files were accessed locally on the East Coast, and in another analysis they suggested that a file published by Guccifer 2.0 was created in the Central time zone of the United States. Most recently, a former DNC official refuted the DNC’s initial allegations that Trump opposition files had been ex-filtrated from the DNC by Russian state-sponsored operatives.
So, if Guccifer 2.0’s role was negated by the statements of the DNC’s own former “official” in a 2017 report by the Associated Press, why do we now return our attention to the Guccifer 2.0 persona, as we reflect on the last section of new findings from the Forensicator?
