America Bombs, Europe Gets the Refugees. That’s Evil

by Eric Zuesse, Strategic Culture:

The US Government (with France and a few other US allies) bombs Libya, Syria, etc.; and the US regime refuses to accept any of the resulting refugees — the burdens from which are now breaking the EU, and the EU is sinking in economic competition against America’s international corporations. America’s corporations remain blithely unscathed by not only the refugees that are breaking up the EU, but also by the EU’s economic sanctions against Russia, Iran, and other allies of governments that the US regime is trying to overthrow in its constant invasions and coups. The US Government makes proclamations such as “Assad must go!” — but by what right is the US Government involved, at all, in determining whom the leaders in Syria will be? Syria never invaded the US In fact, Syria never invaded anywhere (except, maybe, Israel, in order to respond against Israel’s invasions). Furthermore, all polling, even by Western pollsters, shows that Bashar al-Assad would easily win any free and fair election in Syria. The US Government claims to support democracy, but it does the exact opposite whenever they want to get rid of a Government that is determined to protect that nation’s sovereignty over its own national territory, instead of to yield it to the US regime, or to any other foreigners. The US regime has virtually destroyed the United Nations.

Currency War, Then Trade War — Is Shooting War Next?

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

My thesis is that currency wars are followed by trade wars and then finally shooting wars among major powers.

This happened in the 1930s and it seems to be happening again.

Currency wars begin in a condition of too much debt and not enough growth. Countries steal growth from their trading partners by cheapening their currencies to promote exports and import inflation.

The present currency war started in January 2010. The problem with currency wars is that all advantage is temporary and is quickly erased by retaliation. Trading partners retaliate with their own devaluations. Currency cross-rates end up back where they started, with costs imposed due to the uncertainties.

Australian anti-vaxxers provide new model for the world

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

As the Australian bureaucrats double-down on their de-facto forced vaccination schemes (see ZeroHedge’s latest article “Australia Will Now Fine Parents Twice a Month If They Don’t Vaccinate Their Kids”), I’m re-posting this piece I wrote in March as a testament to all those throughout the western world who fight for health freedom…

And, for all the latest on Australian medical tyranny and more, it’s imperative you go to Cazzfiles.com. The talks from “The 2018 Sydney Vaccination Conference – The Censorship of the Vaccination Debate in Australia” are now posted there (see here and here).

China Mulls Creation of Joint Global Satellite System with Russia – Source

from Sputnik News:

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A Chinese delegation has proposed to Russia’s Roscosmos state space corporation to discuss a possibility of the creation of a joint global satellite communications system, which could become an analogue of UK’s OneWeb satellite constellation or Starlink, a source from Russian space industry told Sputnik.

“During the bilateral meeting on July 4, the Chinese delegation, which arrived in Moscow to get acquainted with the new leadership of Roscosmos, presented, among other things, its plans to create a multi-level satellite communications system. During the meeting, a proposal was announced about Russia’s participation in the project,” the source said.

Leaked Chinese Memo Warns Of “Thucydides Trap” With US, “War Is Unavoidable”

from ZeroHedge:

A series of leaked internal documents reveal that China’s military reforms are aimed at allowing Beijing to “manage a crisis, contain a conflict, win a war” and overtake the United States in military strength, according to the Express.

The leaked documents were published by the Central Military Commission in February for the purpose of spreading President Xi Jinping’s “thought on strengthening the armed forces”.

If the reforms go ahead, they will lead to heightened tensions with China’s neighbouring countries, including Japan, in the East and South China Seas and the US. –Express

Trump Pushed for US Military Invasion of Venezuela: Report

by Jon Queally, The Anti Media:

Surrounded by his top military aides in a White House meeting less than a year ago, the Associated Press on Wednesday reports that President Donald Trump wanted to know why the U.S. military couldn’t “just simply invade” the country of Venezuela.

Based on the account of “a senior administration official familiar with what was said,” AP reports that the president’s comments “stunned” those at the meeting, including U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and national security adviser H.R. McMaster, both of whom have now left the administration.

Why the US-Israel Alliance Will Soon Be a Trouble for Both

by Matthew Jamison, Strategic Culture:

The recent shredding of over 70 years of American foreign policy with regards to the location of the US Embassy in the State of Israel has been a major catastrophic inflection point in the tortured history of the State of Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict and the American/Israel uber-special Alliance. It has also been a crystallization moment for many such as myself who once were unwavering and unquestioning supporters of Israel and defenders of Israel in an overwhelmingly hostile anti-Israel environment in the UK and Europe. I was always pro-Israel alongside being pro-Palestinian State and believed strongly in Israel’s right to exist and the creation of a State of Palestine living side by side a State of Israel. I believed passionately in the policies and leadership of the likes of Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin – the Oslo peace process – along with the heirs to such traditions in the form of Ehud Barack, the peace-loving and reasonable Israelis who sought to find a way out of the quasi-Nazi/Zionist situation they had created in Palestine and inflicted upon the Palestinian people in the immediate aftermath of World War II with the establishment of a ‘Jewish State’ and ‘Jewish Homeland’ for the Jewish people.

Putin says that Russian weapons systems are decades ahead of foreign counterparts

by Frank Sellers, The Duran:


Meanwhile, how useful is NATO in the geopolitical environment of the 21st century?
Russian President Vladimir Putin assured graduates of Russia’s military academies that several Russian weapons systems are years, even decades more advanced than its foreign counterparts. Earlier this year, the Russian President unveiled numerous weapons systems with advanced capabilities which do not yet possess equivalents anywhere else in the world relative to their impressive capabilities.

A father of two who worked for a pharmaceutical company and who studied vaccines was murdered in front of his two children while camping.

Democrats Finally Deviate From ‘Let’s Start WW 3’ Midterm Platform

by Caitlin Johnstone, Russia Insider:

Last night Rachel Maddow finally took a break from her relentless warmongering toward Russia, Syria and North Korea to have a pretend cry about the plight of immigrant children on her hit MSNBC show.

It was arguably the climax of a loud nationwide outcry against a federal policy of separating parents from their children when they are arrested for illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the United States, and the following day President Trump signed an executive order suspending that policy while Congress comes up with some less draconian legislation.
