MSM ignores massive anti-sanctions ‘No More Trump’ protest rallies in Venezuela (VIDEOS)


12-08-19 08:17:00,

Leading English-language news organizations have provided extensive and dramatic coverage of anti-government protests in Venezuela, but mostly ignored large-scale rallies against US sanctions, which took place over the weekend.

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans flooded the streets of the country’s capital, Caracas, on Saturday to denounce the economic blockade and sanctions imposed by the US. Many were wrapped in national flags and sported red shirts, typically worn by the supporters of the government. The rallies were held under the slogan ‘No More Trump’.

The mainstream media stayed largely silent on the massive anti-sanctions rallies. This is a striking contrast to the extensive and often dramatic coverage the leading English-language news organizations have provided during anti-government protests, led by opposition leader Juan Guaido.

CNN gave a brief mention to the ‘No More Trump’ protests on its Spanish-language website, CNN en Espanol, but the company’s English-language service, CNN International, ignored the story altogether. As did the New York Times, whose weekend coverage passed over Venezuela entirely, but found space for an opposition march in Moscow.

The event did get some attention from Latin American public broadcaster Telesur, as well as other smaller left-leaning publications such as the British Morning Star, but they were outliers in the world press.

President Nicolas Maduro had earlier called on “all Venezuelans” to gather at the city’s squares to sign a manifesto, decrying US pressure and affirming the will to “defend independence, peace and sovereignty” of the country. The government said it expects to collect more than 13 million signatures by early September, after which the document will be delivered to the UN as proof of what people think about the sanctions.

In January, opposition politicians declared Guaido, who leads the nation’s parliament, ‘acting president’ of Venezuela, challenging Maduro. The move was dismissed by the government. The opposition has since staged several large-scale protests, some of which spiraled into riots and clashes with police. More than 100 protesters have died in the ensuing violence.

Guaido is openly backed by the US,

Brazil’s Massive Crime Against Humanity –

Brazil’s Massive Crime Against Humanity

Paul Craig Roberts

The corrupt Brazilian government installed by Washington has decided to destroy the Amazon Rain Forest.  This will adversely affect the Earth’s climate by eliminating a massive carbon sink.

The beneficiaries of the destruction of the rain forest are the timber loggers who are buddies with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, environmental minister Ricardo Salles, and farming lobbyist Tereza Cristina Dias.  

One might have thought that the build-up of CO2 and the impact of carbon emissions in raising the temperature of Earth would result in more careful and responsible policies than one that destroys a unique ecological habitat that stabilizes the Earth’s climate. For no other reason than to maximize profits for timber loggers, the Amazon Rain Forest is to be destroyed. This is unregulated international gangster capitalism at work.  Destroy the planet for everyone else so that a handful of gangsters can acquire fortunes.

We cannot expect any intelligence in a government where Dias dismisses global warming as “an international Marxist plot.” Dias sounds like a parrot for the anti-global warming think tanks sponsored by the carbon energy lobby.  Anything that would constrain short-run profits regardless of their long-run costs is dismissed as a hoax or a communist plot.  

President Lula de Silva and his successor Dilma Rousseff attempted to run Brazil in the interests of a broader segment of the population than the robber-baron capitalists. In its unbridled form, capitalism is an exploitative mechanism that permits a few people to grab large profits in the near term by imposing massive external costs on the broader society and the environment.  The more responsible policies of Lula and Rousseff enraged the Brazilian robber barons and their backers in Washington.  Using the capitalist controlled press, Brazil’s gangster capitalists demonized Lula and Rousseff. They were accused of money laundering and “passive corruption.”  The most corrupt elements on the political scene framed them up on false charges. Lula was imprisoned and Rousseff was impeached and removed from office, thus turning the country back over to Washington and the corrupt Brazilian capitalists. The idiot Brazilian population accepted this.  The fools believed their enemies.

Currently, the rain forest is being destroyed at the rate of 3 football fields per minute.

Massive Radiation Leak Dwarfing Fukushima Traced To Russian Research Facility


30-07-19 11:14:00,

A massive, unexplained cloud of radiation that swept across Europe in 2017 has been traced to one of Russia’s largest nuclear facilities, according to NewScientist

Located between the Volga river and the Ural mountains, the leak coming from the Mayak nuclear development facility released up to 100 times the amount of radiation into the atmosphere as the Fukushima disaster. 

Italian scientists were the first to raise the alarm on 2 October, when they noticed a burst of the radioactive ruthenium-106 in the atmosphere. This was quickly corroborated by other monitoring laboratories across Europe.

Georg Steinhauser at Leibniz University Hannover in Germany says he was “stunned” when he first noticed the event. Routine surveillance detects several radiation leaks each year, mostly of extremely low levels of radionuclides used in medicine. But this event was different.

“The ruthenium-106 was one of a kind. We had never measured anything like this before,” says Steinhauser. –NewScientist

After the radioactivity was detected, the Institute for Radioprotection and Nuclear Security in Paris soon concluded that the most likely source of the leak was the Mayak facility – something Russian officials denied at the time, instead suggesting that the source may have been emissions from a radionuclide satellite battery burning up during re-entry. 

The team which tracked down the source of the emission ruled out a satellite because no space organizations reported missing any at the time, and the pattern of radiation in the atmosphere didn’t match that of a satellite’s reentry. 

The report claims that despite being so much higher than the Fukushima release, the radiation level in the Mayak incident wasn’t high enough to impact human health.

After further investigation of 1300 measurements from hundreds of monitoring stations across Europe, Steinhauser and colleagues found that radiation levels were “between 30 and 100 times higher than those measured after Fukushima.” 

The leak was unusual because the release was limited to radioactive ruthenium.

Massive Embezzlement Scandal Threatens Juan Guaido’s Political Future


18-06-19 08:58:00,

Authored by Alexander Rubinstein via,

The big event that was supposed to be Guaido’s watershed moment has instead turned out to be a public-relations failure far worse than his quickly quelled attempted military coup…

The political party of Juan Guaido – Voluntad Popular (Popular Will) – was never all that popular to begin with. The sixth largest political party in Venezuela, Popular Will is heavily financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Now, a recently exposed embezzlement scandal in Colombia risks to further alienate the party from the Venezuelan people.

What was supposed to be Guaido’s watershed moment has instead turned out to be a public-relations failure far worse than his quickly quelled attempted military coup, which MintPress News reported caused even the New York Times to describe Guaido as “deflated.”

What happened in Colombia appears to be so damning that not only is the Colombian intelligence service leaking documents exposing wrongdoing by Popular Will representatives appointed by Guaido, but the Organization of American States (OAS) — which is typically just as pro-opposition as the Colombian government — has called for an investigation.

In a tweet issued June 14 at 10:47 p.m. Venezuela time, Guaido called on his ambassador to Colombia — whom he had shut out of the aid event — to formally request an investigation by Colombian authorities, whose already-existing investigation is the reason the story came out in the first place. That was more than four hours after Secretary General of the OAS Luis Almagro called for an investigation that would clarify the “serious charges,” identify those responsible and effectuate accountability.

But Guaido had already been well aware of the charges, having dismissed his appointees who appear to be ringleaders of the embezzlement scheme. According to the report, he was contacted by the journalist who exposed the scandal 30 days before the story was published.

What happened in Cúcuta isn’t staying in Cúcuta

There’s barely a peep about the scandal in the Western press. A Google News search for “Juan Guaido scandal” and “Popular Will scandal” turned up nothing of relevance at the time of this article’s writing.

Massive internationale Reaktionen auf Festnahme von Julian Assange


11-04-19 09:19:00,

WikiLeaks-Gründer von britischer Polizei nach sieben Jahren aus Botschaft des südamerikanischen Landes abgeführt

Der Gründer der Enthüllungsplattform WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, ist in den Räumen der Botschaft von Ecuador in London von der britischen Polizei festgenommen worden. Die britischen Behörden teilten mit, sie hätten am Donnerstag die Erlaubnis bekommen, den Publizisten in der diplomatischen Vertretung festzunehmen. Zuvor hatte die Regierung von Präsident Lenín Moreno ihm das Asyl entzogen.

Update: Die britische Polizei bestätigt, dass die Festnahme aufgrund eines Auslieferungsantrags der USA erfolgte: “Julian Assange, 47, (03.07.71) has today, Thursday 11 April, been further arrested on behalf of the United States authorities, at 10:53hrs after his arrival at a central London police station. This is an extradition warrant under Section 73 of the Extradition Act. He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later today (Thursday, 11 April).”

Assange, der die australische und ecuadorianische Staatsbürgerschaft besitzt, hielt sich seit dem Jahr 2012 in der Botschaft des südamerikanischen Landes in London auf. Die Vorgängerregierung unter Präsident Rafael Correa hatte ihm Asyl gewährt und damit vor einer Auslieferung nach Schweden geschützt. Das dortige Verfahren wegen Sexualdelikten ist inzwischen eingestellt.

Die britische Polizei hatte wiederholt angekündigt, den Publizisten wegen Verstößen gegen Kautionsauflagen festzunehmen, sollte er das geschützte Gebäude der Botschaft verlassen. Der Gründer von WikiLeaks äußerte seinerseits die Befürchtung, die britischen Behörden könnten ihn an die USA ausliefern. Dort hält die Staatsanwaltschaft einen lange geheim gehaltenen Haftbefehl aufrecht, weil die von Assange gegründete Enthüllungsplattform zahlreiche interne US-Regierungs- und Militärdokumente veröffentlicht und damit US-Kriegsverbrechen aufgedeckt hat.

Die Auslieferung heute provozierte umgehend Reaktionen auf internationaler Ebene. Die russische Regierung kritisierte die Festnahme des Publizisten scharf. “Die Hand der ‘Demokratie’ erwürgt die Freiheit”, schrieb Maria Sacharowa, die Sprecherin des russischen Außenministeriums, am Donnerstag auf Facebook.

Wenige Tage zuvor hatte der Menschenrechtler der UNO, Nils Melzer, die ecuadorianische Regierung aufgefordert, Assange nicht aus der Botschaft in London zu verweisen. In diesem Fall sei es wahrscheinlich, dass er von den britischen Behörden festgenommen und an die USA ausgeliefert würde, prognostizierte der UNO-Sonderberichterstatter zum Thema Folter in Genf. WikiLeaks hatte zuvor gewarnt, dass Assange nach fast sieben Jahren in der ecuadorianischen Botschaft in London sein Asyl verlieren könne.

“A Massive War On Autopilot” – US Airstrikes Surge In Secret War In Somalia


18-03-19 09:39:00,

With so many little wars to keep track of, you probably haven’t noticed that the US has quietly been increasing its airstrikes against targets in Somalia.

And, as RT’s Polly Boiko points out,  it seems few people in Washington have either.

In recent months, dozens of Al-Shabaab terrorist suspects have been killed by American drones and planes in Somalia, reportedly thanks to a surplus becoming available from Syria. However, in a familiar pattern, the US military has denied any civilians were harmed, while locals and aid agencies deny that denial.

A former US ambassador to Somalia told the New York Times: 

“It could be there is some well-thought-out strategy behind all of this, but I really doubt it.”

Another former US government official described Somalia as a “massive war on autopilot.”

RT’s Polly Boiko  takes a look at a secret secret war no one’s noticed.

Massive LED swastika displayed at Kiev shopping mall. Are ‘hackers’ to blame?


20-02-19 08:56:00,

A swastika has been displayed in a Kiev shopping mall, located at a street named after Nazi collaborator-turned Ukrainian ‘hero’ Stepan Bandera. The mall itself denied involvement in such a shocking display and blamed hackers.

The offensive display appeared on the LED-illuminated staircase of the Gorodok Gallery mall in the Ukrainian capital on Saturday and was caught on video by some baffled shoppers.

Footage from the scene shows the massive swastika over a red and white field, with the whole display closely resembling the state flag of Nazi Germany. While the woman who captured the video was seemingly offended by the sight, some other visitors to the mall appeared to stroll casually past the display like nothing was wrong at all.

Indeed, it could have been just a design change and in keeping with the location of the mall, which is situated on Stepan Bandera Avenue. The street used to be called Moscow Avenue but, in 2016, was renamed after Bandera, a Ukrainian nationalist and Nazi collaborator, hailed in modern Ukraine as a national hero.

The mall vehemently denied links to the appearance of the Nazi symbol, stating that the LED staircase was swiftly turned off after the huge swastika was noticed by security. Management blamed unknown “hackers” for the incident, adding that it is fully cooperating with law enforcement to capture the culprits behind the shocking display.

5G Wireless: A “Massive Health Experiment” That Could Cause Cancer And Global Catastrophe


06-02-19 11:09:00,

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

Experts are warning that superfast broadband known as 5G could cause cancer in humans, and the usage of 5G is nothing more than a “massive health experiment.” 5G could very well be a global catastrophe that kills wildlife, gives people terminal diseases, and causes the Earth’s magnetic field to change, according to shocking claims by a technology expert.

Arthur Robert Firstenberg is an American author and an activist for electromagnetic radiation and health. In his 1997 book Microwaving Our Planet: The Environmental Impact of the Wireless Revolution, he claimed:

“The telecommunications industry has suppressed damaging evidence about its technology since at least 1927.”

Firstenberg has also founded the independent campaign group the Celluar Phone Task Force and since 1996 he has argued in numerous publications that wireless technology is dangerous.

According to a report by the Daily Star, Firstenberg has also recently started an online petition calling on world organizations, such as the United Nations, World Health Organisation (WHO), and European Union to “urgently halt the development of 5G,” which is due to be rolled out this year. In fact, Verizon has activated the world’s first 5G networks in four cities in the United States: Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. According to the Firstenberg, wireless networks are “harmful for humans” and the development of the next generation is “defined as a crime” under international law, as he states it in the online petition.

When speaking to The Daily Star Online, Firstenberg said this 5G rollout is deadly. 

“There is about to be as many as 20,000 satellites in the atmosphere. The FCC approved Elon Musk’s project for 12,000 satellites on November 15th and he’s going to launch his in mid-2019. I’m getting reports from various parts of the world that 5G antennas are being erected all over and people are already getting sick from what’s there now and the insect population is getting affected,” Firstenberg stated.

“This could become a global catastrophe. When the first satellites were launched in the late 1990s for mobile phones,

Massive Al-Qaeda Gas Attack On Pro-Government Aleppo Leaves Over 100 Hospitalized


25-11-18 03:54:00,

Over 100 civilians were hospitalized, including dozens of women and children, after anti-Assad militants unleashed a wave of mortars filled with poison gas on government controlled Aleppo Saturday evening. 

Syrian state-run SANA published multiple photos and video of victims in the city’s hospitals being treated for what’s reported to be chlorine gas exposure. Though it’s not the first time that ‘rebels’ seeking to topple the Assad government have conducted a chemical attack on pro-government areas according to United Nations findings, it is the first time that mainstream American outlets like CNN and Reuters have featured coverage of such events.

Image source: Syrian state media. via CNN

Crucially, pro-rebel media has now confirmed the poison gas attack, specially the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which western media have long relied upon as a go-to source of anti-Assad opposition reporting. According to Reuters:

In Aleppo city which the government controls, the shells had spread a strong stench and caused breathing problems, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said.

In total official Syrian government sources reported 107 people were injured, a sizable portion of them children, after al-Qaeda terrorists linked to the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alliance (HTS, the main al-Qaeda group that controls Idlib) attacked three Aleppo districts with poison filled projectiles. 

Initially the death toll approached 12 according to early reports, however, it now appears there were no fatalities resulting from gas exposure, though many remain in the hospital in what international reports say is the highest casualty toll since the Syrian Army liberated Aleppo two years ago. 

“The explosive (shells) contain toxic gases that led to choking among civilians,” Aleppo police chief Issam al-Shilli told SANA.


Western backed “rebels” have targeted residential areas in Aleppo with chlorine gas!

Dozens of civilians and children suffocated and were taken to nearby hospitals.

Where is the international outrage? Or is the world only provoked by fake “regime chemical attacks”?

Russian jets quickly began pounding HTS positions — the group military officials said was responsible for the attack  in retaliation.

Navy Proposes Massive Land Grab For Nevada Bombing Range

Navy Proposes Massive Land Grab For Nevada Bombing Range2018-11-212018-11-21

FALLON, Nev.— The U.S. Navy today released details of a plan to seize more than 600,000 acres of public land in central Nevada to expand a bombing range. The land under threat includes rich habitat for mule deer, important desert springs and nesting sites for raptors like golden eagles.

If approved by Congress, the 1,536-page plan would transform entire valleys and mountain ranges into bombing targets. Combined with another proposal to expand the Air Force’s Nevada Test and Training Range, the military is attempting to grab 1.75 million acres of public land in Nevada — an area larger than Delaware.

“It’s outrageous that the Trump administration wants to ram another military takeover of public lands down our throats,” said Patrick Donnelly, Nevada state director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The wide-open spaces of central Nevada’s basin-and-range country are part of what makes our state so spectacular. Congress shouldn’t let Trump seize hundreds of thousands of acres of public land so the military can drop bombs on our cherished wildlife and wild places.”

The proposal would triple the size of Fallon Naval Air Station bombing ranges, seizing land in the iconic Fairview Peak area and the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge. The plan released today follows an earlier proposal to expand the Nevada Test and Training Range in southern Nevada, which would take more than 1.1 million acres of Desert National Wildlife Refuge, currently managed to protect bighorn sheep and other wildlife.

The public has 60 days to comment on the enormous draft environmental impact statement, shorter than the 90 days normally given to comment on such a lengthy and complex document. The Navy has scheduled public meetings in Hawthorne and Gabbs (Dec. 10), Austin and Eureka (Dec. 11), Fallon (Dec. 12), and Reno and Lovelock (Dec. 13). 

“The military has a long history of trying to stymie legally required public involvement,” said Donnelly. “We’ll shine a bright light on this process and highlight the risks this bombing range expansion poses to wildlife and public lands.”

5G – A “Massive Experiment On The Health Of All Species?” – Dutch Anarchy


12-11-18 04:58:00,

Article reposted from UFO insight

By Marcus Lowth

Most of us have probably heard of 5G, even if we don’t fully understand what it is. And, if the 200-plus strong group of scientists from nearly forty countries around the world are correct, it might be something that we need to familiarize ourselves with rather quickly. While there have been conspiracy rumors abounding around Internet forums and chat rooms for some time revolving around the distribution of 5G towers and the real reason for their installation being to “control the population”, there are increasingly alarmed voices from the mainstream scientific community that something genuinely could be amiss.

5G Conspiracy

While these concerned voices stop short of endorsing a purposefully planned rollout of mind-control-type equipment, they do state that the health implications of such “weapons grade frequency” technology could be devastating. Including the risk of raised intense depression and significantly increased suicides. Indeed, Dr. Joel Moskowitz from the University of California Berkeley would recently state that “the deployment of 5G, or fifth generation cellular technology, constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species”.

In the United Kingdom, the regions of Cornwall and Cumbria have been selected as testing grounds for 5G technology which, like much of the United States, could soon expand to other parts of the country. However, at the University of Bristol, where their own 5G network runs on campus, several unfortunate and sudden suicides have occurred in a two-year period. Before we look at that, however, check out the short video below. It goes over the basics of 5G technology.

The University of Bristol Suicides

Between 2016 and 2018, ten students from Bristol University would take their own lives. Given the obvious connection of the university itself being the main link, it didn’t take long for some to look towards the new 5G network that resides on campus. The technology, as well as for all manner of Internet and WIFI devices, aides in the trials of driverless cars taking place there. For their part, Bristol University looks to dismiss these claims. Instead, they would insist that the students who committed suicide while studying at the university were already “suffering from mental health problems”.

Überraschend massive Erhöhung der Geheimdienstbudgets


01-11-18 07:36:00,

Bild: CIA

Donald Trump war als Kritiker der Geheimdienste angetreten, das hat sich nach den Budgetzahlen mit einem fast 10prozentigen Anbstieg auf über 80 Milliarden US-Dollar stark verändert

Zu Beginn seiner Amtszeit kämpfte Donald Trump gegen die Zuwanderung, den Sumpf in Washington, die Mainstream- oder Fake-News-Medien und die Geheimdienste. Das war für ihn Organe des tiefen Staats, die mithelfen sollten, ihn zu stürzen oder zu schwächen (Trump und die Geheimdienste). Zudem könne man ihnen nicht vertrauen, wie er mit Verweis auf die nichtexistenten irakischen Massenvernichtungswaffen sagte. Mittlerweile ist Trump selbst im Sumpf angekommen und kämpft für den Machterhalt oder die Machtgewinnung seiner Anhänger aus der republikanischen Partei im Kongress, während er die Attacken gegen die Geheimdienste einstellte.

Als “wahre Feinde des Volkes” blieben die Mainstream- oder Fake-News-Medien und die Migranten, die er wie radikale Rechte, etwa der Antisemit, der den Anschlag in Pittsburgh verübt hat, mitunter als Invasoren bezeichnet, gegen die er im Wahlkampf das Militär aufbieten ließ.

Zumindest an der Spitze der Geheimdienste hat Trump schnell für Ruhe gesorgt. Schon im Januar 2017 ernannte er Dan Coats zum Chef der nicht-militärischen Geheimdienste (Director of National Intelligence). Er trat im März seinen Dienst an und löste James Clapper ab, der seitdem offen gegen Trump auftritt. Im Januar trat auch schon sein Vertrauter Mike Pompeo das Amt des CIA-Chefs an, der mittlerweile als Außenminister fungiert, an der Spitze steht jetzt eine Frau: Gina Haspel, die für ein Geheimgefängnis verantwortlichgewesen sein soll, in dem Gefangene gefoltert wurden. Vorgänger John Brennan wurde ebenfalls nach dem Rausschmiss offener Kritiker Trumps. FBI-Chef James Comey musste im April 2017 gehen und wurde ersetzt durch Christopher Wray. Der Vize-Chef Andrew McCabe kündigte im Januar und wurde von Trump noch vor Ablauf der Amtszeit gefeuert. NSA-Chef Michael Rogers, zugleich Kommandeur des Cyberkommandos, blieb noch bis Mai 2018 im Amt und wurde ersetzt durch Paul Miki Nakasone.

Clapper, Brennan, Comey und Rogers waren auch während ihrer Dienstzeit Trump gegenüber kritisch, forcierten die Reaktionen auf die angeblichen russischen Beeinflussungskampagnen und Hacks und traten schließlich zusammen auf, um Donald Trump im Januar vor seiner Amtsübernahme über das Ausmaß der russischen Beeinflussungskampagne der Präsidentenwahl und das Dossier mit angeblich kompromittierenden Informationen über ihn zu unterrichten.

Sweden – Massive Up-scaling of False-flagging to Nationwide High Crimes – Will it Make the Right-Wing Swedish Democrats to Kingmakers on 9 September 2018? | The Vineyard of the Saker

06-09-18 09:58:00,

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog

The current Swedish Government, led by the Social Democrats, is governed by a coalition with the Green Party since 2014. Incumbent PM, Stefan Löfven, intends to continue his government and hopes to win on general election day, next Sunday, 9 September 2018. However, for years – ever since what they call the onslaught of undesirable immigrant, i.e. the “lesser people” from the Middle East and thereabouts – the extreme right, anti-immigration, eurosceptics ‘Sweden Democrats’ are on course to become the second-largest single party in the next parliament. On Facebook the party’s leader, Jimmie Åkesson, warned that “Sweden is on fire again”. He may refer to the hundreds of cars set a blast this year in major Swedish cities – and the again likely refers to the same phenomenon at a lesser scale that has beleaguered Sweden already in previous years.

They, the Swedish Democrats, are building up their momentum to take over and becoming the kingmakers, this coming election. It looks like they have engaged hooligan-Nazi-type xenophobes – like those that fight the mainstream in Germany’s streets – the AFD (the Alternative for Germany) sponsored masses – to stage false flag terror attacks, mostly setting cars on fire. The cities principally affected are Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg. This year, the year of elections, the terror peaked with hundreds of car burnings and even a drive-by shooting in which at least three people lost their lives. When people feel in danger, are fearful, because they seem helpless against an unknown enemy – the terror – they turn to the right for protection. Its them, the right that promises fierce police and military protection – and, indeed, they carry out their promise.

Just a look at France. After a number of false flag attacks in which hundreds of people lost their lives – Macron was able to put the “State of Emergency” – akin to Martial Law – into the French Constitution. France today looks like a police and military state, in larger cities you find armed police and machine-gun touting military at every street corner. The sight has become the new normal. Are the French safer for it? Nope. Because the danger comes from within, not from outside. The danger comes from the very protectors which are complicit with those ‘hidden’ forces that want to maintain a police state that oppresses the public,

Massive US and EU Street Protests Are the Only Way to Avoid War

Massive US and EU Street Protests Are the Only Way to Avoid War

10-04-18 09:35:00,

Charles is the founder and editor of Russia Insider. He can be reached at [email protected] Follow him on Twitter and on Steemit.

The invaluable Michael Krieger wrote about this yesterday, and he is absolutely right – the weak spot in the establishment’s march to war is the strong popular mood against it on the left and right, and the transparently absurd lying coming from the war-happy crowd. This provides an opening for a broad-based, massive anti-war movement uniting an otherwise fractured and feuding public.

After reading and republishing his article, I started asking: is this in any way realistic?

I think it is.

The fact is that the usual suspects are trying to frog-march America and the EU to war using old-fashioned techniques of false flags and lying in a completely new environment of relative informational openness. Yes the Deep State can use Google and Creepybook to tilt the odds in their favor, but only up to a point. If that works so well, how do you explain the election of Trump?, Brexit? or a dozen similar unexpected outcomes?

The 2016 elections were an emphatic rejection of these ridiculous wars. Combine the MAGA crowd with Bernie Bros, and you have a good 70% of the country saying quite emphatically – No!

The kindling of a major anti-war movement is very dry and could well burst into flames.


1) the memory of the Iraq war and the wide belief by most people that we were lied to, 2) the grinding economic difficulties of most Americans who will see the war as another stupid distraction from more urgent and pressing economic problems, 3) the likelihood that the war will send the economy into a nose-dive, 4) wide-spread anti-migrant sentiment, 5) the veterans out there furious about the last wars – going back to Vietnam, 6) the historically low trust in the media – down in the 30% area.

Past anti-war movements were decidedly ideologically on the Left. It wasn’t what a good Republican, patriot, veteran, etc, would do. Not anymore. This time around those guys would probably be at the front of the picket lines.
