IAEA Chief Warns Iran Has Already Reached Nuclear Weapons Capable Enrichment

from ZeroHedge:

Amid the fifth and what’s expected to be the final round of Iran nuclear talks in Vienna, the director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has voiced that time is running out on reaching an agreement given the Islamic Republic has already reached bomb-building capability in terms of enriched uranium purity levels.

IAEA chief Rafael Grossi told Financial Times that Iran has reached uranium purity levels that “only countries making bombs are reaching” after routinely ramping up enrichment since Trump pulled out of the Obama-era JCPOA back in May 2018.

The Growing Mystery of Suspected ‘Energy Attacks’ on U.S. Government Personnel

by Rick Moran, PJ Media:

What’s behind the suspected “energy attacks” the U.S. government is investigating? Is it a weapon? Is it our own surveillance equipment? Is it a case of mass hysteria?

The only thing certain about the sickening of dozens of American government workers in several different places — including outside the White House — is that people are falling ill with debilitating symptoms.

Otherwise, our intelligence agencies don’t have a clue. They call it “Havanna Syndrome” because that’s where government employees first reported symptoms. But what it is escapes them.

B613: PENTAGON HAS CREATED AN UNREGULATED SECRET UNDERCOVER MILITARY FORCE WITH 60,000 OPERATIVES WORKING ANONYMOUSLY ACROSS AMERICA

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The unprecedented shift has placed an ever greater number of soldiers, civilians, and contractors working under false identities, partly as a natural result in the growth of secret special forces but also as an intentional response to the challenges of traveling and operating in an increasingly transparent world. The explosion of Pentagon cyber warfare, moreover, has led to thousands of spies who carry out their day-to-day work in various made-up personas, the very type of nefarious operations the United States decries when Russian and Chinese spies do the same.

“Criminal Complicity”: Outrage as Biden Pushes $735 Million Weapons Sale to Israel Amid Gaza Slaughter

by Jake Johnson, Activist Post:

Human rights advocates warned Monday that the Biden administration is deepening U.S. complicity in the Netanyahu regime’s ongoing massacre of civilians in Gaza by attempting to push through a $735 million sale of so-called “precision-guided weapons” to Israel.

The Washington Post reported Monday that the Biden administration officially notified Congress of the sale on May 5, just days before Israeli forces began their latest bombardment of Gaza last week—an assault that has killed nearly 200 Palestinians, wounded more than 1,200, and displaced tens of thousands.

Report: Israel Showed U.S. Intelligence ‘Smoking Gun’ on Hamas Using Media Building

by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart:

Israel reportedly showed U.S. officials “smoking gun” intelligence Sunday indicating that the Palestinian Hamas terrorist organization was using the Jala Tower in Gaza, which also housed the Associated Press, Al Jazeera, and other international news outlets.

On Saturday, Israel destroyed the tower, after warning the occupants to allow them to leave. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted that the building contained “Hamas military intelligence assets” and that the media had been used as “human shields.”

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER: GAZA ATTACK CAMPAIGN WILL CONTINUE “AS LONG AS NECESSARY”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

According to prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the attack campaign against Gaza by Israel will last “as long as necessary.” Israel appears to remain committed to fighting the terrorists” entrenched in Gaza, Netanyahu said in a televised address on Sunday after a week of fighting.

“Our campaign against the terrorist organizations is continuing with full force,” he stated. “We are acting now, for as long as necessary, to restore calm and quiet to you, Israel’s citizens. It will take time,” he added according to a report by RT.

Beijing issues deadliest war warning yet as China declares it is now ‘ready to defeat’ US

by Oli Smith, The Express:

CHINA has issued its deadliest warning yet as Beijing warned that the US will be “defeated” if the two superpowers go to war amid a tense stand-off over the South China Sea and Taiwan.

China has pledged to rapidly defeat the US in a military conflict in one of the country’s most explicit warnings yet. China’s Global Times, which is seen as a Government news outlet, published an editorial revealing the threat in response to joint military drills carried out by the US. The US joined drills with Japan, Australia and France this week in an intended show of force against Beijing.

China unveils new nuclear submarine that can strike any city in America

by Nolan Barton, Natural News:

On Friday, April 30, China launched a new nuclear submarine that can slip past America’s first line of defense and hit the American mainland.

Most U.S. cities are out of range of submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM) because of the “first island chain” – a series of bases dotted across the Pacific Ocean equipped with sophisticated submarine detection systems.

With the first island chain acting as the country’s first line of defense, hostile submarines are exposed to detection and attack by American P-8 anti-sub patrol planes, surface warships and other undersea reconnaissance capabilities before even coming close to striking distance of the U.S.

Will Special Interests Allow America’s ‘Longest War’ to Finally End?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Even if “won,” endless wars like our 20 year assault on Afghanistan would not benefit our actual national interest in the slightest. So why do these wars continue endlessly? Because they are so profitable to powerful and well-connected special interests. In fact, the worst news possible for the Beltway military contractor/think tank complex would be that the United States actually won a war. That would signal the end of the welfare-for-the-rich gravy train.

In contrast to the end of declared wars, like World War II when the entire country rejoiced at the return home of soldiers where they belonged, an end to any of Washington’s global military deployments would result in wailing and gnashing of the teeth among the military-industrial complex which gets rich from other people’s misery and sacrifice.

Lyle Goldstein: “Yes, War with China Could Go Nuclear and End Life on Earth”

by Mike Billington, LaRouche Organization:

An article under the above title was published on March 20 in the National Interest by Lyle Goldstein, but not noted by EIR at the time. Goldstein, an Associate Professor in the China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI) at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, is fluent in both Chinese and Russian, and is a frequent critic of the imperial U.S. thinking and policies.

In this case, Goldstein is sending a wake-up call to the war hawks in the United States who are acting as though the U.S. were still the only superpower and could dictate policies at will under the misconception that no country can withstand U.S. military force. Goldstein reviews the recent developments of China’s nuclear arsenal. He starts with a 2015 graphic from Naval & Merchant Ships, a Chinese journal, which shows the “impact of a Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) strike by twenty nuclear-armed rockets against the United States,” destroying most of the major U.S. cities.

Civil War is Coming – GLOBALLY

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

I have been in political meetings over the weekend. I cannot stress strongly enough that there are cracks appearing in this Great Reset Agenda. While Klaus Schwab’s evil dreams of redesigning the world may be spearheaded by corruption, bribes, and influence, the end goal is really not that distant from the Communist Revolutions and those of Adolf Hitler. Schwab may not command armies, but he has infiltrated just about every government to varying degrees. His little video shows his disregard for human life and everything to him is the environment with the fewer humans to muck-it-up the better.

The Politics of Heroin and the Afghan US Pullout

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

The Biden Administration has announced an Afghanistan US troop withdrawal date of September, 11, 2021, symbolically exactly two decades after the game-changing 911 attacks in New York and Washington. However the Pentagon and White House are saying nothing about one of the main reasons the powers that be who control Washington have remained in Afghanistan since the fake chase after a former CIA contract employee named Osama bin Laden.

What is clear is that the US Administration is not being straightforward with its plans for Afghanistan and the so-called pull-out. The previously agreed May 1 date versus September 11 is clearly not about making a more graceful exit after a two decade war that has cost US taxpayers more than $2 trillion. The argument by some US Democrats that a full pullout with endanger the rights of Afghan women with the brutal Taliban culture of misogyny is clearly not what US and NATO soldiers have been protecting with their presence. What then is at stake?

Who Wags the Dog? Israel’s Friends in Washington Mean Constant War in the Middle East

by Philip Giraldi, Strategic Culture:

Biden, like presidents before him, is caught in the trap between an extremist-dominated Israel and the all-powerful domestic Israel Lobby.

Donald Trump, who was elected President of the United States in 2016, may have won due to voters attracted by his pledge to end many of the “stupid” wars that the American military was involved in worldwide. In the event, however, he ended no wars in spite of several attempts to withdraw from Afghanistan and Syria, and almost started new conflicts with cruise missile attacks and the assassination of an Iranian general. Trump was consistently outmaneuvered by his “experts” on the National Security Council and at the Pentagon, who insisted that it was too early to disengage from the Middle East and Central Asia, that America’s own national security would be threatened.

The Case That 9/11 Was an Israeli Attack on the US Is ‘Overwhelmingly Strong’ – Ron Unz

from Russia Insider:

Back in 1999 I was invited to join Steve Sailer’s HBD email group, where I encountered all sorts of interesting people. The participants were mostly intellectuals or journalists having sharply heterodox views about racial differences, especially those involving IQ and crime, and this was reflected in the somewhat euphemistic title, which stood for “Human Bio-Diversity.” A reasonable sense of the controversial roster is that less than a year earlier a founding member named Glayde Whitney had contributed the Foreword to David Duke’s 700 page opus My Awakening.
