Ms. Pumpkin Head for President: A Nightmare – Global Research

ms.-pumpkin-head-for-president:-a-nightmare-–-global-research

21-10-19 08:28:00,

A few weeks ago I had a terrifying nightmare, so gruesome was it that I awoke screaming. In this dark horror show, I was carving a pumpkin for Halloween.  The cap came off easily and I disemboweled the slimy interior quickly, but as I did, I felt a strange sensation on my hand, as if a tongue were biting it. 

When I was finishing carving the face, however, the trouble really started.  The pumpkin head came alive as the eyes and mouth moved and then it started speaking in a voice that was familiar but one I couldn’t place.  Blond hair started sprouting from its head as it started shrieking and bouncing on the table in an hysterical manner.  I jumped back in fear and trembling as it started cackling, “I running, I running.” Blood ran from between the carved teeth and the blue eyes pulsated with the mania of a serial killer in a horror movie.

I awoke with a scream when I realized it was Hillary Clinton.

So hideous was this night terror that I kept it to myself. But a week later when the next Democratic pseudo-debate was being promoted, I said to my wife that something told me that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic nominee and the debates were a sideshow.  She said she thought that would never happen and that Clinton was now hated and done for. I disagreed without recounting my nightmare because to describe it at that point would have induced more retching at the thought of the night monster.

Then this past week during the Democratic debate, the courageous Tulsi Gabbard put the lie to the murderous militarism of U.S. foreign policy and its regime change operations with its use of American supported terrorists in Syria and throughout the world.  She calmly and eloquently denounced the militarist positions of the other candidates standing beside her, as they listened disquieted and disturbed to a patriotic American speaking truth that they dare not even think, so bought and sold are they.

She was a woman alone among a cast of sycophants denouncing the murderous policies carried out by presidents Democratic and Republican and foisted on the American people through a vast network of propaganda,

NBC News Thinks Getting Microchipped Sounds Super-Convenient

nbc-news-thinks-getting-microchipped-sounds-super-convenient

By Daisy Luther

We’ve written numerous times before about the upcoming push for personal microchips on this website. Thousands of people in Sweden are voluntarily getting “chipped.” Daisy Luther wrote that many Americans wouldn’t be far behind.” And experts have claimed that one day in the not-too-distant future that “everyone” will be microchipped.

And it looks like the push is on. A while back, Brandon Turbeville wrote about the UK’s pro-microchipping coverage. And now, NBC News published a pro-microchipping video, gushing over the “convenience” of having your keys, your money, and your ID all placed in your hand in a device about the size of a grain of rice.

Are we literally at a place in humanity in which carrying a wallet is too much trouble? Heaven help those who feel that way if they ever have to acquire their own food and water.

Imagine the possibilities…of theft.

This would certainly take stealing your wallet to an entirely new level. Would thieves just hack off a person’s hand to gain access to their keys, credit cards, and ID? Or would it be even easier than that?

Considering we now need to carry our passports and credit cards in RFID-blocking wallets because criminals can walk around with scanning devices and steal our unprotected information. Will those with chips need to wear an RFID-blocking glove, a la Michael Jackson?

“The Bubble Is Starting To Burst” For Online Social Media Influencers

“the-bubble-is-starting-to-burst”-for-online-social-media-influencers

21-10-19 04:19:00,

One of the first brands to ever use social media influencers for advertising, Ipsy, is again leading the way – but this time, in pulling back from social media, according to the Wall Street Journal

Brands like Ipsy are left questioning whether or not the advertising is worth it, since they have no way to measure sales or verify how many people see ads. Influencer advertising and sponsored content, meanwhile, has become the equivalent of a 30 second TV spot, with big name stars getting as much as $100,000 or more for a single ad. 

But now there is an air of deceit over the marketplace, as many influencers have inflated their follower counts by buying fake followers by the thousands. Influencers have also damaged their credibility with their followers by promoting products that they don’t use. 

JaLynn Evans, a 19-year-old student at Virginia Commonwealth University said:

 “All these paid posts make you question whether influencers are genuine or just doing it for the money.”

We hate the disappoint you, JaLynn, but you’re probably not going to like the answer…

This loss of trust has undermined the power of influencers. Marcelo Camberos, Ipsy’s chief executive said: “Have they peaked? I don’t know.”

And it’s also difficult to track how well influencer ads perform. One way to track, monitoring the number of “likes” a post generates as a percentage of the account’s followers, is showing that engagement is waning. 

Anders Ankarlid, chief executive of online stationery retailer A Good Company, said: “Consumers can see if someone honestly cares about a product or whether they are just trying to push it. The bubble is starting to burst.”

But advertisers can’t ignore social media outright. Instagram has 1 billion monthly users and it is estimated that companies will spend $4.1 billion and $8.2 billion globally on influencers in 2019. This is up from $500 million in 2015, but still just a fraction of the $624.2 billion in total that companies will spend on advertising this year. 

Walmart began adding influencer posts to its website this year and last year, Unilever warned that fraud “undercut the power of influencers”

World in flames: why are protests raging around the globe?

world-in-flames:-why-are-protests-raging-around-the-globe?

21-10-19 04:15:00,

Protests and demonstrations have rocked every corner of the world in recent days, with tax hikes, corruption and supposed environmental injustice all raising public anger. But why have they spread?

Watching the news over the last week, one would be convinced that the world has devolved into a series of flashpoints, with corrupt governments across the political spectrum facing the wrath of their enraged citizens. To be fair, that’s not far from the truth.

Four continents have seen anti-government demonstrations over the last week, many of them sparked by seemingly innocuous taxes or changes to the law. In Lebanon, protesters have set Beirut ablaze in response to a proposed fee of 20 cents per day on internet voice calls, dubbed the “WhatsApp tax.” Chileans set metro stations on fire following a $1.17 increase in public transport fares, and the streets of Ecuador are filled with rubble after a planned removal of fuel subsidies triggered mass unrest.

Elsewhere, perennial corruption has the West African nation of Liberia in a state of near-constant protest; a change to presidential term limits in Guinea caused deadly riots; Mexicans are demonstrating against corruption and drug cartel violence; and masked rioters in Hong Kong are still rallying against their government, months after the withdrawal of the Chinese extradition bill that sparked their anger.

Europe, meanwhile, has seen a general strike and mass marches in Barcelona following the jailing of Catalonian independence leaders on Monday. Dutch farmers have also shut down the country’s motorways after the government introduced new emissions regulations; and in France, already rocked by almost a year of ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrations, thousands of firefighters have marched for more funding and better working conditions.

Protests can break out over a relatively minor issue, before spiralling into national crises. French President Emmanuel Macron learned this the hard way last November, when demonstrations over a fuel tax hike turned into a nationwide rejection of his corporate-friendly policies. Likewise, Lebanon’s “WhatsApp tax” was simply the final straw for protesters,

Tulsi Gabbard is right, and Nancy Pelosi wrong. It was US Democrats who helped cultivate the barbarism of Isis

tulsi-gabbard-is-right,-and-nancy-pelosi-wrong.-it-was-us-democrats-who-helped-cultivate-the-barbarism-of-isis

21-10-19 12:17:00,

There is something profoundly deceitful in the way the Democratic Party and the corporate media are framing Donald Trump’s decision to pull troops out of Syria.

One does not need to defend Trump’s actions or ignore the dangers posed to the Kurds, at least in the short term, by the departure of US forces from northern Syria to understand that the coverage is being crafted in such a way as to entirely overlook the bigger picture.

The problem is neatly illustrated in this line from a report by the Guardian newspaper of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s meeting this week with Trump, who is described as having had a “meltdown”. Explaining why she and other senior Democrats stormed out, the paper writes that “it became clear the president had no plan to deal with a potential revival of Isis in the Middle East”.

Hang on a minute! Let’s pull back a little, and not pretend – as the media and Democratic party leadership wish us to – that the last 20 years did not actually happen. Many of us lived through those events. Our memories are not so short.

Islamic State, or Isis, didn’t emerge out of nowhere. It was entirely a creation of two decades of US interference in the Middle East. And I’m not even referring to the mountains of evidence that US officials backed their Saudi allies in directly funding and arming Isis – just as their predecessors in Washington, in their enthusiasm to oust the Soviets from the region, assisted the jihadists who went on to become al-Qaeda.

No, I’m talking about the fact that in destroying three key Arab states – Iraq, Libya and Syria – that refused to submit to the joint regional hegemony of Saudi Arabia and Israel, Washington’s local client states, the US created a giant void of governance at the heart of the Middle East. They knew that that void would be filled soon enough by religious extremists like Islamic State – and they didn’t care.

Overthrow, not regime change

You don’t have to be a Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi or Bashar Assad apologist to accept this point. You don’t even have to be concerned that these so-called “humanitarian” wars violated each state’s integrity and sovereignty,

First Time Since 1934 – Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” To Be Reprinted In France

first-time-since-1934-–-hitler’s-“mein-kampf”-to-be-reprinted-in-france

21-10-19 09:31:00,

Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio continues to pitch the idea that the global business cycle is headed for economic doom, sort of like what happened in the 1930s. Dalio warns of populism and nationalism spreading throughout the world and is most analogous to the years before World War II.

History seldom repeats, but there are instances where it rhymes — and maybe Dalio is right about the direction the world is headed. 

As the rise of nationalism and populism flourishes throughout Europe, several reports, mostly from French sources, say for the first time since 1934, a publisher in France will start selling “Mein Kampf” (“My Fight”), the book written by Adolf Hitler in 1925. 

The book will be released to the public in France in 2020, will be accompanied by a critical edition written by fifteen French and German historians, reported Le Journal du Dimanche

Initially, the reissue of “Mein Kampf,” was announced in 2015, but the news of it caused a tremendous uproar that plans for reissue were quickly shelved by publishing house, Fayard. “The Fayard publisher intends to carry out as planned the publication of “Mein Kampf “- which falls into the public domain in January 2016 – in a new translation by Olivier Mannoni that will be authoritative,” said the publisher in 2015.

The book is “considered as one of the engines of Nazism,” is “struck with a kind of taboo because we are so afraid of the lies it contains that we refuse to talk about it,” Mannoni said in 2015.

News of the reissue circulated Twitter like wildfire last week. Many users agreed that the new book could be a terrible idea. 

Some users said the book is already available online. Amazon is selling several translations for under $20. 

The book was banned in Germany for seven decades for its anti-Semitic text before it was reissued in 2016. 

The rhythm of the 1930s is possibly getting louder, well, at least maybe in Dalio’s mind. 

But there are similar trends of populism and nationalism gaining momentum in Europe and across the world at the moment — similar to what was seen in the 1930s when “Mein Kampf”

Actual PC police: British law enforcement allow convicted male rapists to identify as female

actual-pc-police:-british-law-enforcement-allow-convicted-male-rapists-to-identify-as-female

21-10-19 09:25:00,

At least six police forces across Britain allow convicted male rapists to be documented as female if they don’t identify as what they really are – male rapists. Because heaven forbid a rapist is mis-gendered?

Six departments, including the South Yorkshire and Thames Valley constabularies, were revealed to have adopted the mind-numbing practice, which allows violent sex offenders to be listed as female in a database used by the Home Office. Durham, Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk police forces, as well as the British Transport Police, are also believed to allow dangerous criminals to define their own gender – biology or facts be damned.

A women’s rights group, Fair Play for Women (FPW), discovered the bizarre policy after filing a Freedom of Information request.

Menstrual health under siege from trans community outraged that physiology isn’t inclusive

“You can’t get much more of a male crime than rape,” Nicola Williams, director of FPW, told the Sunday Times. “It would be highly offensive to a woman who was raped to have it written down that her attacker was a female when clearly that was a male with a penis.” But she’s probably just transphobic.

In Britain, the legal definition of rape states that the criminal act involves penetrating another person with a penis without their consent – not exactly something that a female could do. Women accused of sexual violence are charged with different crimes. In layman’s terms: Violent criminals who committed acts that only men can legally carry out can now identify as female, without issue, in several parts of Britain. Who knew that the PC police were a real thing?

Fearful of being labeled transphobic or not adequately “woke,” companies and governments have been pressured into acquiescing to the demands of fringe activists. Sanitary pad manufacturer ‘Always’ recently announced that it would no longer use the female Venus symbol on its packaging, following complaints that the image was somehow discriminatory.

Bolivia at Crossroads – Choosing Between Continued Success or Handover to US Hegemony | The Vineyard of the Saker

bolivia-at-crossroads-–-choosing-between-continued-success-or-handover-to-us-hegemony-|-the-vineyard-of-the-saker

20-10-19 09:34:00,

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog

“I don’t want to be the best President in the history of Bolivia, I want to be the President of the best Bolivia in history.” So proclaimed Evo Morales in a pre-election rally a few days before general elections, today, 20 October 2019. At the same time, Evo declared that ever since the Tribunal Constitucional Plurinacional (TCP – Plurinational Constitutional Tribunal) in November 2017 rejected an appeal by the opposition that he could run for a fourth term for President, and approved his candidacy for 20 October elections, US interference on a daily basis was rampant.

The United States has not stopped trying to change public opinion with false propaganda and making incredibly ludicrous promises to the population. For example, US Embassy people – maybe Fifth Columnists on US payroll, promised the population of the poor Yungas region of Bolivia, new and asphalted roads, if they didn’t support Evo Morales in the upcoming elections. There are also flagrant lies circulating, that Evo and his families had stolen hundreds of millions of dollars and deposited them in a secret account in the Bank of the Vatican. Similar lies as are being spread about Nicolas Maduro, the Castro family, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the leaders of Iran and Syria and many more, who oppose the dictate of Washington.

The Bolivian Minister of the Presidency, Juan Ramón Quintara, referring to the US attempts to sabotage the elections, mentioned a few days ago on a Bolivian public TV channel, “There is not one day the US is not interfering in Bolivian political internal affairs.” He added, warning his compatriots, “In the last 50 years the United States has put its dirty hand in the Bolivian electoral process. Today the interference is worse than ever. For this reason, brothers Bolivianos, be aware and don’t allow your vote being highjacked by foreign meddling.”

This is in total disrespect of international law, of international diplomacy and ethics. But what to expect from the only rogue state on our “Mother Earth”. Not to mention the flagrant, aberrant and hardly hidden corruption going on in the current and previous US governments for the last at least 100 years, and the Pentagon’s and White House’s constant interference in elections around the world.

Dramatic Footage Shows National Spanish Police In Brutal Catalonia Protest Crackdown

dramatic-footage-shows-national-spanish-police-in-brutal-catalonia-protest-crackdown

20-10-19 08:03:00,

By Tyler Durden

Increasingly violent protests continue to rage in the Catalonia region of Spain, with unrest bringing Barcelona to a standstill for a second day, after some 500,000 pro-independence marchers converged on the city Friday from other towns and the countryside, following nearly a week of ongoing protests against Monday’s supreme court verdict sentencing at least nine Catalan independence leaders to between 9 and 13 years in prison.

Overnight Friday police used riot control measures, including water cannons and rubber bullets in attempts to disperse the large crowds, which according to the Associated Press were “throwing cobblestones and flammable bottles, building barricades and setting dozens of bonfires in large garbage bins.”

Seriously! What the hell is this?

Whatever you think of #Catalonia I think we can all agree that this kind of violence is completely unprovoked and unjustified pic.twitter.com/LhJOE9Q29A

— Thomas van Linge (@ThomasVLinge) October 19, 2019

As the clearest sign of growing violence in the protests, state sources cited around 400 people injured by the end of this week of growing chaos in the streets, many of them police officers.

According to some estimates around 100 security personnel have suffered injuries; however, police were in a number of instances caught on video brutally beating demonstrators.

— Oh boy what a shot (@ohboywhatashot) October 19, 2019

Friday’s riots were the worst since smaller protests began in the immediate aftermath of Monday’s court sentencing.

Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau made an urgent public appeal for calm: “This cannot continue. Barcelona does not deserve it,” she said on Saturday.

Some protest organizers have blamed ‘infiltrators’ who they say by and large have been responsible for upping the violence against police and acts of vandalism.

Catalan interior chief and police authority Miquel Buch told the AP, “The images of organized violence during the night in Barcelona have overshadowed the half a million people who demonstrated in a peaceful and civic manner to show they rejected the verdict.”

Celebrity Protesters and Extinction Rebellion – Global Research

celebrity-protesters-and-extinction-rebellion-–-global-research

20-10-19 06:20:00,

Benedict Cumberbatch. Olivia Colman. Fine actors. They believe in Extinction Rebellion, or perhaps, rebelling against the prospect of extinction. The environment thing, humanity as a damnably scandalous, ecologically damaging species. But they also believe in taking sponsorship from the very same entities who are doing their best (or worst) to engage in matters of existential oblivion. So the circle of contradiction, even hypocrisy, is complete.

The matter has come to the fore over overt expressions of support for XR’s two-week effort of disruption in London by the entertainment set. Severable notable sites have received the attention of the climate change protest group. The Treasury building has been sprayed with fake blood. The London Underground train system has been disrupted. Protestors have glued themselves to trains, to floors and even mounted trains. Roads to Westminster were blocked, sit-ins staged at City Airport. Over a 1,700 arrests have been made.

Phil Kingston was one such figure, not exactly a rabble rouser or hardened rioter. The 83-year-old glued his hand to the side of a carriage at Shadwell and was concerned for his grandchildren. “I’m also very concerned about what’s happening in the poorer parts of the world who are being hit hardest by climate breakdown.” Being Christian, he expressed concern about “God’s creation being wrecked across the world.” Kingston was also jointed by a rather eclectic sampling: a vicar, an ex-Buddhist instructor, and a former GP.

The incident, which involved aggressive scuffling between commuters and the protesters, was acknowledged in a statement from the movement as something divisive. “In light of today’s events, Extinction Rebellion will be looking at ways to bring people together rather than create an unnecessary division.” Others were keen to pick holes in the rationale of the protest: Why, for instance, get at an electric train? Within XR, things are far from uniform.

Such protestors were a rather humble lot, but it did not take long for the bigger fish to join the shoal. Cumberbatch added his voice of support, his grin flashing as it was snapped by cameras in front of the Extinction Rebellion hearse blocking traffic to Trafalgar Square. Behind him were the conspicuous words hovering with spectral, foreboding promise: “Our future.”

The criticism of this was not far behind.

What We’ve Lost

what-we’ve-lost

20-10-19 06:12:00,

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

This is only a partial list of what we’ve lost to globalism, cheap credit and the Tyranny of Price which generates the Landfill Economy.

A documentary on the decline of small farms and the rural economy in France highlights what we’ve lost in the decades-long rush to globalize and financialize everything on the planet— what we call Neoliberalism, the ideology of turning everything into a global market controlled by The Tyranny of Price and cheap credit issued to corporations and banks by central banks.

After Winter, Spring (2012) was made by an American who moved to a small village in the Dordogne region of France to recover something of her childhood on a small Pennsylvania farm.

The farmers–self-described as paysanspeasants in English, (a translation I don’t consider entirely accurate, for reasons too complex to go into here)– describe the financial difficulties of earning enough to survive without outside jobs.

One young farmer who is taking over the family dairy from his aging parents encapsulates the economic reality of small farms: in the 1960s, they had 3 or 4 cows, now they have 100, but their income is the same.

Corporate mega-farms can produce huge quantities of agricultural products of questionable quality because they have the scale, access to cheap credit and expertise to deal with the voluminous bureaucratic paperwork imposed by the EU and the French government. (One slip-up on a form and you’re sunk if you’re a one- or two-person operation.)

Artisanal producers can’t compete, and will never be able to compete in a global marketplace where there is always a cheaper source. (Up to half a small farmer’s income comes from EU subsidies, which the EU is trying to cut.)

Financial survival requires one spouse have an outside job, or the farmers must operate farm tours, an onsite auberge (restaurant) or equivalent higher-margin business, all of which increases the capital they must borrow to fund the expansion and the risk of bankruptcy should the venture fail to cover its costs.

The documentary echoes the themes of an earlier French documentary,

The basics of a staged bioterror attack | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

the-basics-of-a-staged-bioterror-attack-|-light-on-conspiracies-–-revealing-the-agenda

20-10-19 11:12:00,

by Jon Rappoport

October 11, 2019

“Imagine this. A big-time doctor from the US Biological Warfare Group waddles into a meeting room, where a collection of Army, CIA, NSA, and DHS representatives sit quietly in their chairs. He says: ‘So I understand you boys want to put on a little domestic bioterror show, to keep the natives from becoming too restless. Well, the first thing you need to know is, germs don’t obey orders. Forget all that sci-fi nonsense. Germs work and they don’t work. It’s a crapshoot. You could have a big fat dud on your hands. I can tell you how to make it work, though, if you give up on your fancy high-tech wet dreams…” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

There are future scenarios which, with enough exposure before they’re staged, can be stopped—or at least analyzed correctly when they occur.

A calculated bioterror event is one of those.

The primary fact is: no matter what kind of germ you’re talking about or where it came from, releasing it intentionally does not guarantee predictable results. Far from it.

For instance, people whose immune systems operate at different levels of strength are going to react differently.

The perpetrators may find that less than 2% of people exposed get sick or die.

But there is another strategy that should be understood:

The use of a germ as a cover story for a chemical.

In other words, there is no germ attack. It’s called a germ attack, but that’s a lie. The perps bring in researchers to the affected area, who go on to claim they have isolated a germ that is the cause of death and illness. It’s a sham. What really happened was:

The spread of a toxic chemical that can’t be detected, unless you’re looking for it.

The chemical has severe, deadly, and predictable effects for a week or two. Then it disperses and loses potency and the “epidemic” is done.

In some town, a fairly isolated community, the word goes out that people are suddenly falling ill and dying. The CDC and the Army are called in to cordon off the area and quarantine all citizens.

David Icke Part 2: “We’re Moving Toward the End Game” – Kevin Barrett

20-10-19 10:12:00,

Listen HERE

This, the second half of my two-hour interview with David Icke, moves beyond “who really did 9/11” to look at the Death Cult’s long-term game plan…and the metaphysical and spiritual issues in play. (Listen to Part 1, “Who Really Did 9/11 and Why”)

David Icke seems unperturbed by the tidal wave of censorship washing over the internet, and over him personally: “We’re moving toward the end game. And as we do, some things are going to become more and more blatant—and left to the free flow of information would be widely exposed.”

The discussion turns to spiritual matters: If the Death Cult is essentially satanic, then who or what opposes it?

Icke: “My philosophy is that we are…consciousness. We are points of attention within an infinite stream of consciousness. And that point of attention can be the size of a pea, or it can be massively expanded, depending on how much of that consciousness we want to allow in. So we’re different points of attention within the same stream of consciousness. The labels that we give ourselves, whether it’s race, culture, or whatever, are not who we are, but what we’re experiencing, what our consciousness is experiencing, in the Biblical three score years and ten. Therefore to me, to judge people by  their race or culture or religion is ridiculous. To judge yourself, to self-identify, with labels, is to me ridiculous. Because the label are merely experiences. People can accept that or argue against it, but it’s my philosophy. And when you look at it, it’s the ultimate non-racist philosophy. Because I’m saying, ‘it’s just an experience, chill out.’”

David Icke’s philosophy strikes me as congruent with the teachings of prophets, mystics, and wisdom teachers from many traditions, including the Islamic tradition I’m most familiar with. The Sufi masters urge us not to identify with our ego and its baggage of labels and tribal affiliations, but instead to surrender to the reality that we experience at each moment. So instead of calling himself Ibn Fulan (the son of so and so) the Sufi is Ibn Waqtih (the son of his moment). The experience of each moment is from God. And in fact it is ultimately God experiencing everything Real;

Escobar: Syria May Be The Biggest Defeat For The CIA Since Vietnam

escobar:-syria-may-be-the-biggest-defeat-for-the-cia-since-vietnam

20-10-19 07:41:00,

Authored by Pepe Escobar via ConsortiumNews.com,

What is happening in Syria, following yet another Russia-brokered deal, is a massive geopolitical game-changer.

I’ve tried to summarize it in a single paragraph this way:

“It’s a quadruple win. The U.S. performs a face saving withdrawal, which Trump can sell as avoiding a conflict with NATO ally Turkey. Turkey has the guarantee – by the Russians – that the Syrian Army will be in control of the Turkish-Syrian border. Russia prevents a war escalation and keeps the Russia-Iran-Turkey peace process alive.  And Syria will eventually regain control of the entire northeast.”

Syria may be the biggest defeat for the CIA since Vietnam.

Yet that hardly begins to tell the whole story.

Allow me to briefly sketch in broad historical strokes how we got here.

It began with an intuition I felt last month at the tri-border point of Lebanon, Syria and Occupied Palestine; followed by a subsequent series of conversations in Beirut with first-class Lebanese, Syrian, Iranian, Russian, French and Italian analysts; all resting on my travels in Syria since the 1990s; with a mix of selected bibliography in French available at Antoine’s in Beirut thrown in.

The Vilayets

Let’s start in the 19thcentury when Syria consisted of six vilayets — Ottoman provinces — without counting Mount Lebanon, which had a special status since 1861 to the benefit of Maronite Christians and Jerusalem, which was a sanjak (administrative division) of Istanbul.

The vilayets did not define the extremely complex Syrian identity: for instance, Armenians were the majority in the vilayet of Maras, Kurds in Diyarbakir – both now part of Turkey in southern Anatolia – and the vilayets of Aleppo and Damascus were both Sunni Arab.

Nineteenth century Ottoman Syria was the epitome of cosmopolitanism. There were no interior borders or walls. Everything was inter-dependent.

Then the Europeans, profiting from World War I, intervened. France got the Syrian-Lebanese littoral, and later the vilayets of Maras and Mosul (today in Iraq).

“Russian Asset” Is A Meaningless Noise War Pigs Make With Their Face Holes

“russian-asset”-is-a-meaningless-noise-war-pigs-make-with-their-face-holes

19-10-19 09:25:00,

Both Tulsi Gabbard and the Green Party of the United States have issued scorching rebukes of Hillary Clinton for baseless accusations the former Secretary of State made during a recent interview claiming that both Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein are aligned with the Russian government.

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said in a transparent reference to Gabbard. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset.”

Clinton provided no evidence for her outlandish claims, because she does not have any. Gabbard has repeatedly denied centrist conspiracy theories that she intends to run as a third-party candidate, a claim which establishment pundits have been making more and more often because they know there will never be any consequences when their claims are disproven. There is no evidence of any kind connecting either Jill Stein or Tulsi Gabbard to the Russian government.

Of course, this total lack of evidence hasn’t dissuaded Clintonites from falling all over themselves trying to justify Mommy’s claims anyway.

This is so important. Russian “assets” are not formal relationships in the USIC sense of the word. If you are parroting Russian talking points and furthering their interests, you’re a source who is too dumb to know you’re being played to ask for money. https://t.co/arMPulvi9H

— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) October 19, 2019

“Russian ‘assets’ are not formal relationships in the USIC [US Intelligence Community] sense of the word,” CNN analyst and former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained via Twitter. “If you are parroting Russian talking points and furthering their interests, you’re a source who is too dumb to know you’re being played to ask for money.”

“It’s important to point out here that a Russian ‘asset’ is not the same thing as a Russian ‘agent’,” tweeted virulent establishment narrative manager Caroline Orr.

Navy Patents UFO-Like Compact Nuclear Fusion Reactor and Hybrid Space/Sea Crafts

navy-patents-ufo-like-compact-nuclear-fusion-reactor-and-hybrid-space/sea-crafts

19-10-19 09:15:00,

By Jake Anderson

A mysterious set of patents filed recently by a U.S Navy researcher has caught the eyes of technologists and conspiracy theorists alike.

These patents describe exotic technologies that do not exist in the commercial or military spheres—as far as we know—and that usually only surface in UFO lore, including high-energy electromagnetic force fields, revolutionary propulsion systems, and a “hybrid aerospace-underwater craft.”

The newest patent is for a practical fusion reactor that could be stored in aircraft to help achieve unimaginable speeds and maneuverability.

The mystery around these patents continues to grow during a time in which the Navy and State Department have stunningly reversed their decades-old policy of not acknowledging UFO sightings. The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division is the home of the high-level Navy researcher, the equally mysterious Salvatore Cezar Pais, who in recent years has filed patents for supposedly operable revolutionary technologies such as  room temperature superconductor (RTSC) and the high-energy electromagnetic field generator (HEEMFG).

Perhaps the most surprising patent concerns the “hybrid aerospace-underwater craft,” which can supposedly navigate with equal precision through space, air, and water with no heat signature and “engineer the fabric of our reality at the most fundamental level.”

In the patents filed, Pais has revealed that Chinese scientists are already way ahead of the United States in such fields. The reason this is a shocking admission is because military personnel, Navy officers, and air pilots have for years reported USOs (unidentified submerged objects) that seem to fly in and out of the sea at incomphrensible speeds.

Depleted Uranium and Radioactive Contamination in Iraq: An Overview – Global Research

depleted-uranium-and-radioactive-contamination-in-iraq:-an-overview-–-global-research

19-10-19 06:46:00,

First published on August 22, 2017

The amount of devastation caused by the Depleted Uranium (DU) weaponry used against Iraq during the consecutive US led wars is historically unprecedented in modern warfare. The devastating magnitude of the complications and damage caused as a result of the use of such radioactive and toxic weapons on the environment and the human population was intensified as a result of the intentional concealment, denial and misleading information released by the Pentagon about the quantities, characteristics, and Iraqi area’s within which these weapons were used.

Information revealed about a severe illness known as the ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ which spread amongst US Army veterans who were exposed to DU while using theseweaponry, helped Iraqi researchers and Medical Doctors to understand the nature of the effect of these weapons, and the means required to investigate further into this issue.

DU is a chemically toxic and radioactive heavy metal produced as waste by the nuclear power industry. It is used in weapons because it is an extremely hard material capable of piercing armor.

The synergistic impact on health due to the 1991post-Gulf War1 economic sanctions, and DU related radioactive and toxic contamination, raised the number of casualties in contaminated areas such as in Southern Iraq.

During 2003, the invading forces used additional rounds of DU in heavily populated areas such as Baghdad, Samawa, Fallujah, Diyala, Najaf, Salahuddin, Basra and Nasiriya (again), and other cities.

The continual use of DU after-Gulf War I in 1991, then during and after the US led military operations in 2003 invasion of Iraq increased the total contamination area with DU in Iraq. Consequently, civilians in previously contaminated areas received an extra dose of radioactivity after 2003. An action that can only be interpreted as committing unseen genocide against the unarmed civilian population in these areas.

Accordingly, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have received higher doses of radioactivity than those received from standard natural sources of radiation. As a result, a multifold increase of diseases related to Low Level Radiation (LLR) exposure have been registered amongst Iraqis since 1995, including an increase of children’s leukemia, congenital malformations, breast cancer etc…

The leukemia incidence rates for instance, shifted towards younger children during these recent years,

Aggression Only OK for US If Led by the Pentagon and Partners – Global Research

aggression-only-ok-for-us-if-led-by-the-pentagon-and-partners-–-global-research

19-10-19 06:41:00,

When US forces rape and destroy nonbelligerent nations threatening no one, it’s called humanitarian intervention, responsibility to protect, and democracy building — notions Washington’s power elites abhor.

When victimized nations defend themselves lawfully against Pentagon terror-bombing and atrocities by ISIS and likeminded jihadists used as US proxy foot soldiers, they’re wrongfully condemned for aggression — notably by establishment media, operating as imperial press agents.

The Obama and Trump regimes respectively supported Turkey’s 2016 and 2018 aggression in Syria — Operations Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch, both flagrantly illegal under international law.

Aggression committed by other countries is only OK with Washington when serving its interests — notably when Israel smashes defenseless Palestinians, rapes Lebanon, and terror-bombs Syria, along with conducting targeted assassinations.

Throughout much of Obama’s war on Syria, now Trump’s, the Pentagon and CIA used Kurdish YPG fighters in the country’s north as proxy foot soldiers against Damascus.

They were supplied with heavy weapons, related equipment, logistical support, intelligence, and air cover for aggression, supporting Washington’s imperial aims, along with their own self-interest against Syria’s sovereign independence and territorial integrity.

When Turkey’s Erdogan launched so-called Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria days earlier, his third cross-border aggression since 2011, the Trump regime OK’d it, then expressed opposition along with congressional members for political and strategic reasons.

The US has a long history of abandoning support for allies to higher priorities, Kurds victimized time and again, early October their latest betrayal, pushing them to ally with Damascus against a common Turkish foe.

Turkey is a NATO member, its alliance with Washington uneasy at best. A rupture could happen any time over US actions Erdogan rejects, Russia the beneficiary if things turn out this way.

Trump and his handlers are trying to have things both ways, criticizing Turkey’s cross-border adventurism while stopping short of harsh actions to stop it — notably by continuing to sell Ankara weapons and munitions used for warmaking.

Neither DJT, his geopolitical team, or congressional leaders give a hoot about ordinary people anywhere, including at home.

Trump’s Wednesday letter to Erdogan showed he wants bilateral differences smoothed over, relations between both countries kept firm, saying:

“Let’s work out a good deal.

School to Prison Pipeline Exposed as 30,000 Kids Under Age 10 Arrested Since 2013

school-to-prison-pipeline-exposed-as-30,000-kids-under-age-10-arrested-since-2013

19-10-19 06:34:00,

Arrests of children have skyrocketed over the last decade according to the latest statistics published by the FBI. Gone are the days of sending children to the principal’s office for a paddling. Now children as young as 6 are getting arrested in Police State USA.

The statistics, complied from 2013 to 2018, revealed more than 30,000 children under the age of 10 have been arrested, averaging more than six thousand kids per year. Equally disturbing is students 10-12 years of age topped 266,000.

In the past, students and children were disciplined with consequences such as time out and paddling. As more and more schools replace handling things internally with external police state options like school resource officers, children are ending up with arrest records and their fingerprints stored in databases.

Often referred to as the “school to prison pipeline”, the principal players in the funneling of kids from school to jail are the school resource officers (SROs), and it’s got parents at their wits end.

Fortunately, the number of students arrested year to year are on the decline from 2014 until now. ABC News writes:

While the FBI’s latest crime report released on Monday shows the numbers of children arrested under the age of 10 have continue to gradually declining in the past five years from a high in 2014 of 6,458 to 3,501 in 2018, experts say it is still too many.

What may seem like routine policing or modern-day policing methods to some, others see as a human-rights violation, a slippery slope leading to a criminal life, and a poor use of school resources. Standing in the gap for children, some would say, are advocates of Restorative Justice (RJ). For example, instead of calling a school resource officer when a fight breaks out on campus at a K-12 facility, security officers (often teachers) will bring the kids and teens into a community of concerned advocates for keeping kids out of the school to prison pipeline.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies, RJ programs are accepted by advocacy groups and others who are highly critical of the presence of school resource officers on campuses. The institute writes:

Restorative justice (or RJ) treats incidents in which people are harmed (like,

PREFACE:

The Syrian Arab Republic (Syria) is an ancient holy land surrounded by terrorist-sup-porting countries that want to destroy it. These countries, in turn, are supported by the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

The secular government of Syria is led by Bashar al-Assad, its elected President. al-Assad is progressive and forward-looking. The terrorists invading and occupying parts of the country are neither progressive nor forward-looking, and most Syrians are happy to be rid of them. Many Syrians are critical of al-Assad for being too soft on the terrorists. They have dubbed him Mr. Soft Heart.

Al-Assad has earned the support of most Syrians by providing for them and by protecting them. Healthcare and education, including higher education, are free in Syria. Before the externally orchestrated and perpetrated war on Syria started, Syria was one of the safest countries in the world to visit.

Now that the West has injected terrorists into the country and imposed illegal sanctions on Syrians, the war-torn country and its people are mostly defiant. The future of the country is theirs to decide, as per international law, and they will not be colonized. Their defiance comes easily thanks to the Western-supported, illegal “opposition” that confronts them.

‘We don’t want an empire built in Brussels’: Hungary’s FM speaks to RT about migrants & rocky relationship with the EU

‘we-don’t-want-an-empire-built-in-brussels’:-hungary’s-fm-speaks-to-rt-about-migrants-&-rocky-relationship-with-the-eu

17-10-19 07:47:00,

Brussels and Budapest have been locked in a standoff about illegal migrants for a few years. Hungary’s Foreign Minister told RT that his country is very much for the bloc, but it should not turn into a Brussels-centered empire.

“We represent a very strong anti-migration policy. We made it very clear that no illegal migrants will be allowed to enter the territory of Hungary,” Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto said. On top of that, Hungary has repeatedly said that “we don’t take part in this [EU] quota system of redistribution and resettlement.” 

This position contradicts the policy of Brussels, he lamented,“because Brussels would like the migrants to come to European Union.”

Also on rt.com
Breakup of EU ‘can’t be ruled out’ if Brussels tries to enforce pro-immigration policies – Orban

Instead of bringing refugees to Europe to supposedly “help” them, Hungary has opted to help the people in need in their home countries. As the 2015 migrant crisis unfolded, Budapest launched a special program dubbed ‘Hungary Helps’ that focuses on providing relief to the Christians living in the Middle East. Budapest has already “spent $40 million on helping 50 thousand Christians” in the region, according to the minister.

Our principal position is the following: we have to bring help where it is needed and should not bring problems where there are no problems.

While such an approach is quite different to the pro-migration, globalist stance preached by Brussels, Budapest is not against the EU, but is actually all for it as the country “is deeply integrated into the European economy,” Szijjarto said. Hungary’s view of the EU itself, however, differs from the mainstream – Budapest believes the Union should be based on the “strong member states,” which embrace their “Christian heritage.”

We don’t want to see an empire being built in Brussels, we want to see a European Union based on strong member states, where national identity, national competence and national sovereignty are important.

The wave of migration has increased the terror threat in the Union,

Treating drug-resistant infections in Gaza under the blockade

Medicin Sans Frontieres 2 Sept. 2019-More than 7,400 Palestinians have been injured by live ammunition during protests in Gaza.  About half of those suffering from open fractures, in which the bone is broken near the wound.  More than 1,000 of them have developed bone infections; these serious and complex wounds require months – if not years – of dressing, surgery, and physiotherapy. Infections prevent recovery and many of them are resistant to antibiotics.  To prevent the spread of resistant bacteria, those with resistant infections have to be isolated in a single room for six weeks. Everyone entering the room must wear protective clothing and clean their hands. MSF has developed the first lab in Gaza that is able to analyze bone samples.

Palestinian protester injured by Israeli sniper fire dies in hospital

Peoples Dispatch 2 Sept. 2019-A Palestinian protester shot by Israeli security forces during the weekly Great March of Return protests in August, succumbed to his injuries at the Gaza European Hospital. According to sources, he was shot by an Israeli army sharpshooter in the southern part of the Gaza strip. More than 6,000 Palestinians participated in the August protests.

Electronic Intifada 30 Sept. 2019-Ali al-Ashqar, age 17, a young participant of the Great March of Return, threw one stone on September 6 while standing 80 meters from the separation wall in Gaza. He was immediately shot by an Israeli sniper who prevented medics from reaching him before he bled to death.

Gaza children’s mental health rapidly deteriorating

Norwegian Refugee Council 25 March 2019-A study conducted by the Norwegian Refugee Council found that 68 percent of schoolchildren in areas close to the Israeli perimeter fence has clear indications of psycho-social distress. The majority said they were most severely affected by the sounds of nearby explosions and media images of conflict in Gaza.  One year since the start of mass protests along the perimeter fence with Israel, children have reported witnessing violence first hand, as well as knowing people who have been injured, killed or lost their homes. Fifty-four percent said they had no hope for a brighter future.

When Time Stands Still – Global Research

when-time-stands-still-–-global-research

17-10-19 11:30:00,

The intimate human experience of time standing still is universal, although rare.  When we undergo it, we are stunned.  Silence seems to enclose us. It is the correlative to the more common experience of time passing at different speeds, sometimes slowly, sometimes fast, despite clocks.  These universal experiences do not accord with the teleology that underlies the modern world with its scientific principle that leads to entropic death triumphant. They are therefore, as John Berger, the English writer and art critic, writes,

“dismissed as subjective, because time, according to the nineteenth-century view, is objective, incontestable and indifferent; to its indifference there are no limits.” 

As a result of living within this scientific and technical presupposition that the background ticking of the clock is the only truth and time is a one-way street, we are now living inside a hopeless mind-frame of a scientific theocracy that says all will end in entropy.  This is nihilism; for at the end of this clock time is nothingness, the infinite void.  This is the unstated “future,” but a future that is also now, a noxious injection that surreptitiously poisons people at the well of their lives where cracks in the consensual reality open and other truths fly in, or as Emily Dickinson said,

“’Hope’ is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul/And sings the tune without the words/And never stops – at all”.

The one-dimensional finality of the view of time as death triumphant is the nihilistic future Nietzsche said was coming, and it is here.  And being here, it tries to reduce any experience that transports us beyond time to personal lunacy and worthy only of dismissal. It reduces human subjectivity and transcendent joy and despondent suffering to the ravings of a madman. Facts are facts says this unstated premise, and if you don’t get that, you are a joker and will be rendered invisible.

In the new movie “Joker,” the suffering Arthur Fleck, the eponymous Joker, is abandoned by a cruel American society whose capitalist order cares not a whit for its regular people, and in a penultimate scene when Arthur is appearing on a late night television show where the snide and condescending host mocks him and his attempt at comedy,

Truth Is A Kremlin Talking Point

truth-is-a-kremlin-talking-point

17-10-19 06:26:00,

In response to a statement during the Democratic primary debates by presidential candidate Andrew Yang that both Russia and the United States have engaged in election interference, liberal pundit Molly McKew tweeted, “I now retract any vaguely nice thing I ever said about Yang knowing technology things because he answered the question on Putin with moral equivalency and a Kremlin talking point.”

If you’re in the mood for some depressing amusement, just type the words “Kremlin talking point” without quotation marks into Twitter’s search engine and scroll through all the results which come up. Just keep on scrolling and observe how this label, “Kremlin talking point”, gets bleated by mainstream empire loyalists to dismiss subjects ranging from the rigging of Democratic primaries to criticism of US regime change wars to endless US warmongering to concerns about new cold war escalations to disliking John McCain to criticism of Nancy Pelosi. Any criticism of the status quo which cannot be labeled false or misleading gets labeled a “talking point” of Russia/Putin/the Kremlin by those who support and defend the status quo of US-centralized imperialist world hegemony.

Yang’s statement about US intervention in foreign elections is indisputably true, of course. Both alternative and mainstream media outlets have thoroughly documented the fact that the US government’s own data shows them to have interfered in scores of foreign elections, far more than any other nation on earth. This includes an interference in Russia’s elections in the nineties that was so brazen they made a Hollywood movie about it. Former CIA Director James Woolsey openly admitted on Fox News last year that the US still interferes in foreign elections to this very day.

These are not conspiracy theories. These are not even secrets. These are facts. But because they are inconvenient facts, they get labeled “Kremlin talking points” by those whose job it is to defend the status quo.

Literally a Kremlin talking point to blame both parties for disastrous US foreign policy. lol pic.twitter.com/OyGT2zMeJc

Tons of nuclear-contaminated debris were dumped into Japan’s Furumichi River when devastating Typhoon Hagibis washed away numerous bags of poorly-secured Fukushima waste – but the Environment Ministry won’t say how many.

An unknown number of bags, each holding up to one ton of contaminated soil and vegetation from the Fukushima site, were swept away from a storage site in Tamura when the river flooded under heavy rains caused by the typhoon over the weekend.

At least 17 bags have since been recovered – but 10 of those, found caught in trees along the river on Wednesday, had spilled their radioactive contents into the water – and the Environmental Ministry remains silent on how many bags are still missing.

Containing radioactive grass, leaves, dirt and wood, collected during decontamination efforts at the Fukushima site following the 2011 meltdown, some 2,667 bags were left out in the open without even a sheet placed over them for protection from the storm at the Tamura storage site, local media reported. The Environmental Ministry has not said how many bags remain, only that “most” of the bags stored there and at another outdoor site in Iitate remain in place. 

The concentration of radioactive materials is relatively low and has little impact on the environment,” the ministry told Kyodo News, insisting there was no increase in measured radiation either in the area where the bags were stored or in the river itself. 

Hagibis, the most powerful typhoon to hit Japan in decades, caused flooding in 200 rivers, dropped record rainfall in some areas, and was preceded by a magnitude 5.7 earthquake off the coast of Chiba. At least 74 deaths have been attributed to Hagibis, and rescue teams are still searching for survivors, with 14 people remaining unaccounted for as of Tuesday night. Nearly 10,000 homes were flooded and hundreds of thousands of police, coast guard, firefighters, and auxiliary personnel are participating in the search and rescue effort.
