Iran Sanctions, Emerging Markets And The End Of Dollar Dominance

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

The trade war is a rather strange and bewildering affair if you do not understand the underlying goal behind it. If you think that the goal is to balance the trade deficit and provide a more amicable deal for U.S. producers on the global market, then you are probably finding yourself either confused, or operating on blind faith that the details will work themselves out.

Case in point, the latest reports that the U.S. trade deficit is now on track to hit 10-year highs, after a 7% increase in June. This is the exact opposite of what was supposed to happen when tariffs were initiated. In fact, I recall much talk in alternative media circles claiming that the mere threat of tariffs would frighten foreign exporters into balancing trade on their own. Obviously this has not been the case.

The World Must Unite To Stop the British False Flag Chemical Attack in Syria

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The Russian and the Syrian governments have exposed over the past three days the intention of the British-backed terrorists in Syria, together with their “White Helmet” terrorist support apparatus, to stage a fake chemical weapon attack, film the White Helmets “saving” the victims, blast the videos around the world on fake news outlets, and induce President Trump to allow the war party to unleash a missile and air assault on Syria. It worked twice before, although Trump restricted the attacks to minor, limited attacks, with few casualties. However, with ISIS largely defeated by the Syrian army, the British intend to provoke a wider war, both to prevent President Trump from carrying out his intention to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria, and to destroy the effort by both Presidents Trump and Putin to bring the U.S. and Russia into a friendly and cooperative relationship. In the eyes of the British Empire, the Helsinki Summit between Trump and Putin marked a deadly threat to the Empire itself.

Who is Pope Francis? Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Argentina’s “Dirty War”

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

From the inception of his Vatican mandate in March 2013 until the recent sex scandal revelations in early 2018, Pope Francis has been portrayed by the Western media and the international community as a left leaning champion of “Liberation Theology” committed to World peace and global poverty alleviation.

Pope Francis is now accused of coverup, corruption and camouflage.

The former Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S. Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò  has intimated in an eleven page Testimony that Pope Francis  was involved (from the outset of his papacy in March 2013) in the coverup of sex abuse allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Vigano says that Pope Francis should step down from the papacy.

America: It’s All Over But the Shouting

by Deena Stryker, New Eastern Outlook:

What is curious, as the Trump presidency careens toward a crashing finish, whether by impeachment or resignation (my money is on the latter, as I suggested back in April) is the media’s strange silence concerning the next person to occupy the White House: the fanatically religious Mike Pence, who has stood a little in retreat from the president with fawning gaze since he took office, making himself conspicuous by the absence of any other apparent role.

Pence is abhorred by Democrats and other secular types, while Republicans know he is unlikely to intimidate Trump’s gun-toting followers hell bent on ‘taking back’ their country to colonial times, not to mention the Alt-right determined to purge the land of non-Whites.

The Fall of Rome

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

When the disgraced Richard Nixon was forced to resign his Presidency, or face certain impeachment, the country did not fall apart!  The Republican party did not go away. A few corrupt leaders were disgraced. Some went to prison and some lost their positions. The same can be said for this Pope. His Papacy is a disgrace to all Catholics worldwide. However, it does not mean that the Catholic church has to go into severe decline. Yet, it is the Christian duty of every Catholic to hold their clergy accountable and demand justice in the name of the victims. Short of a severe purge of the Catholic leadership in this matter, justice cannot be served. To sit by on the sideline and merely be a spectator is give to give implicit support for these illegal acts of sexual abuse and even murder. Silence makes every Catholic an accomplice. And make no mistake about it, this Pope is the Hillary Clinton of the Catholic church!

Batchelor and Cohen Look Ahead

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:

With the US mid-term elections looming in 70 days, John and Steve look ahead to what we can expect in terms of Russian “meddling” and other distractions from The New Cold War.

As usual, this is required listening for anyone searching for a thoughtful and objective discussion of current events.

Bruce Ohr’s Testimony Reveals Even More FBI Corruption

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Bruce Ohr CONFIRMED in his interview today: after the FBI terminated their relationship with Chris Steele for leaking to the media, the FBI privately reengaged with him and continued receiving his info. This was after suggesting to the American public they had cut Steele off.

On Tuesday, former associate deputy attorney general and employee of the Department of Justice Bruce Ohr gave a closed-door testimony to House investigators that revealed even more corruption in the ranks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in their behavior and actions regarding the surveillance of then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

A Book For Our Time, A Time That Perhaps Has Run Its Course

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

American post-WW 2 supremacy, writes Andrei Martyanov in his book, Losing Military Supremacy just published by Clarity Press, has been destroyed by America’s narcissism.https://www.amazon.com/Losing-Military-Supremacy-American-Strategic/dp/0998694754/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1535577199&sr=1-1&keywords=andrei+martyanov

The arrogant hubris of American exceptionalism and the myths that sustain it are subjected to devastating analysis in this long overdue book. Martyanov has no patience with American strategic thinkers, Russian experts, American war myths, and General George S. Patton. No nation has ever assembled a greater collection of ignorant fools than the US and trusted them with the leadership of the country.

A Chinese Company Reportedly HACKED Hillary Clinton’s Private Server, Has A Copy Of ALL Her Emails

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

A Chinese company that claims to have hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server reportedly has a copy of every single email the former presidential candidate sent and received afterward. The Chinese state-owned company inserted a code that forwarded all Hillary’s emails to them, and Donald Trump is already demanding that this is investigated.

According to reporting done by The Daily Caller, the Chinese state-owned firm operating in the Washington D.C. area wrote code that was then embedded in Hillary’s private server and generated a “courtesy copy” for almost all her emails. Those were then forwarded to the Chinese company.

The Reverse Bucket List

by Chris Marcus, Miles Franklin:

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman starred in the 2007 movie, “The Bucket List.” A “bucket list” defines things we want to do before we die, before we “kick the bucket.”

A reverse bucket list—as used here—is a list of things already occurred, but we wish had not happened.

The Reverse Bucket List:

  1. The Federal Reserve Act authorized the central bank of the United States. That act allowed a privately owned bank—The Federal Reserve—which is neither federal nor a reserve—to control the nation’s money supply. Politicians and bankers are pleased The Fed exists because it enhances their power and wealth. However, the Fed devalues the dollar and creates price inflation for consumers and stocks. This weakens the economy and transfers wealth to the political and financial elite.

Facebook Engineer’s Stunning Admission: “We Tear Down Posters Welcoming Trump Supporters”

from ZeroHedge:

On Tuesday morning, President Trump lashed out at Google, with his remarks later broadening to include Twitter and Facebook, accusing it of “rigging” search results by presenting only results “from National Left-Wing Media” and accused “Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good.”

Those companies “better be careful because you can’t do that to people,” Trump said later in the Oval Office. “I think that Google, and Twitter and Facebook, they are really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It is not fair to large portions of the population.”

Google immediately responded, condemning Trump’s charge, and claiming that “Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology.”

REMEMBER THE ROBO-BEE? WELL NOW THERE’S AN UPGRADE…

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Some time ago I blogged about the creation of small robots designed to look like honey bees. At the time, I speculated on the reasons for the development of this latest gadget in Mr. Globaloney’s arsenal of gadgets: colony collapse disorder, i.e., the dramatic drop of pollinator insects that form a crucial link in the food chain. The phenomenon first began to be noticed about two and a half decades ago, though there was no consensus as to why it was occurring. Eventually, however, someone made the link to GMOs and the special herbicides and pesticides developed to be used in conjunction with them.  The end result was “who needs bees” when you can simply develop robotic substitutes.
