Trump Invades Somalia

Bookmakers must be wondering how many wars he’ll wage during his tenure.

He continues Bush/Cheney/Obama wars, escalated them in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, likely intends more combat troops for Afghanistan, threatens nuclear war on the Korean peninsula, and targets Somalia for the first time since US forces were withdrawn in 1994.

Sending dozens, perhaps scores, even hundreds of US combat troops isn’t exactly an invasion. Besides, US special forces operated there at times for years – illegally on the territory of another country.

Big things usually start small. US forces in Somalia may signal many more to come. Obama waged a covert drone war on the strategically important Horn of Africa.

It’s near the Bab el-Mandeb strait chokepoint separating Yemen from Eritrea. Millions of barrels of oil flow through it to the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The excuse given is just more grade-A bovine excrement.

As are all the other US military "interventions", this is about power projection in the region; expropriating resources to which the US government has utterly no moral right; making certain that the existing government of that country is US/Western-centric, even if that means regime change; and making sure that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Oh, and speaking of "power projection" in the Persian Gulf, the US government , with the permission of the former President of Yemen, President Saleh, has "expropriated" two Yemeni islands, upon which they have built two huge naval bases, and those island are Socotra and Masirah.

U.S. Sends “Dozens” Of Soldiers To “Advise” In Somalia

By Brandon Turbeville

As if America’s previous experience in Somalia was not memorable enough, the United States is committing “dozens” of troops to the embattled semi-failed state under the ever-present guise of “fighting terrorism.”...

The rift between Mr Bannon and Mr Kushner

Sources in the White House said that Mr Trump had told Mr Bannon: “We gotta work this out” and to “cut it out” over the rivalry against the president’s son-in-law, whose influence has grown.

Mr Bannon is said to doubt that the peace will last. Nevertheless his supporters say that he is prepared to fight what he recognised as an all but unwinnable battle against a member of Mr Trump’s family.

Dozens of more US troops dispatched to Somalia

The US military has dispatched dozens of troops to Somalia on a mission allegedly aimed at training the African country’s forces to confront terrorist groups.

A US military official said on Thursday that about 40 soldiers from the US Army's 101st Airborne Division had been deployed to Somalia as part of an effort to enhance the capabilities of local forces in their fight against terrorism.

"United States Africa Command will conduct various security cooperation and/or security force assistance events in Somalia in order to assist our allies and partners," said Pat Barnes, the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) spokesman.

Barned added that the troops had arrived in the Somali capital of Mogadishu on April 2 from the Fort Campbell army base in the US state of Kentucky, and were carrying out a train-and-equip mission expected to continue until the end of September.

The official claimed that the deployment had been at the request of Somalia’s government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the US military is doing in Somalia is what it typically does in other countries; arranging for the expropriation of natural resources to which the US government has absolutely no moral right; insuring that its government is US/Western-centric, even if that involves regime change, and insuring that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

And if you want to see why the US military is in Somalia, you need go no further than the following article:

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION PLANS ECONOMIC AND MILITARY OFFENSIVE AGAINST AFRICA

Trump has chosen retired US Air Force Colonel Rudolph Atallah to serve as Africa director on the National Security Council (NSC). Attalah was previously director of the US Special Operations Command Sub-Saharan Africa Orientation Course, which prepares US soldiers and government officials for deployment to the region. Trump’s leading choices to head the State Department’s Africa Bureau include Jeff Krill, the former vice president of Kosmos Energy, a company with substantial financial interests throughout West Africa, and retired US Army intelligence officer Charles Snyder.

During his first three months in office, Trump approved major expansions of the US Africa Command’s (AFRICOM) interventions in Somalia, Libya, Nigeria, and several other unnamed Central and West African countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though President Trump's "plan" for Africa is to keep the continent as subservient to Western economic needs as humanly possible.

The Saudi-Led Coalition’s Slaughter of Somali Refugees

Reuters has produced a follow-up report on the slaughter of dozens of Somali refugees off the coast of Yemen:

“According to survivors’ accounts, the vessel carrying the refugees across the Red Sea was hit by shelling from a coalition warship, without any warning, followed by shooting from an Apache helicopter overhead,” U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein said last week.

The coalition, which receives U.S. arms and logistical support, has denied responsibility.

The survivors’ accounts confirm that the Saudi-led coalition was responsible for the attack, but then there was no one else that could have carried out the attack. Only one side of the war controls the skies in and around Yemen, and that is the coalition. The Somali government has publicly accused coalition forces of carrying out the attack, and since Somalia is a member of the coalition they are in a better position than most to have reason to believe this.

US Wars Escalate Across Middle East, With No End in Sight

Hardly a week goes by lately without the US sending more ground troops to Syria. At the same time, more troops are headed to Iraq, amid record numbers of US airstrikes and soaring civilian deaths that go along with them. Officials are also pushing heavily for the Trump Administration to sign off on an escalation in direct US involvement in Yemen.

President Trump’s promise to “fight to win” is seen as driving a lot of these escalations, or at the very least giving top military officials reason to think they can push military escalations as a matter of course across the Middle East and Northern Africa, and the signs are that this escalation is far from completed.

This has led to more troops, more strikes, less restrictions, and basically more of everything, though some former officials are cautioning that the one thing that seems not to be coming with it is an escalation of planning for what to do after the fighting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; unless there is a unified and coherent US military strategy for these troop escalations, just throwing more troops at the situations in these countries will not help.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

US General Wants to Hike Intervention in Somalia

US African Commander Gen. Thomas Waldhauser today confirmed that he is still seeking increased authority to carry out attacks in Somalia, seeking President Trump’s permission for more “flexibility” in carrying out airstrikes and using ground troops in the country.

It was reported last month that the Pentagon was looking to expand involvement in Somalia, though Waldhauser today confirmed that the White House has not granted them the permission that they were seeking, leaving unclear what the holdup is, as the Trump Administration is sending more and more forces across Africa.

According to Waldhauser, the changes would not just open up an increase in operations in Somalia, but also allow the pentagon to provide increased direct aid to the Somali National Army, including potentially putting embedded troops in with them in areas close to combat forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, that's what they're calling "advisors" these days at the Pentagon, "embedded troops?!?

There's the alleged "good reason" why the American military is in Somalia, i.e., fighting the "good fight" against Al-Shabaab, the African "flavor" of Al Qaeda.

And then, there is the "real reason why the US is in Somalia. And that can very easily be found and identified by the Index Mundi, sourced from the CIA Fact Book:

Natural resources: uranium and largely unexploited reserves of iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt, natural gas, likely oil reserves

A lot of what you see here keeps the 21st century world humming, and again, the US government wants to expropriate these resources, to which it has no moral right; insure that the government is Western-centric; and lastly, insure that these resources are only sold for US dollars.

Any questions?!?

Trump Expands Special Forces Deployments Around Africa, Mideast

Reports from earlier this month that Pentagon has been increasing deployments of special forces around the Middle East and Africa appears to be continuing apace, with the most recent reports suggesting that President Trump has expanded the deployments into Central Africa, and is continuing the policy across the region.

The use of small-scale special forces as an alternative to larger deployments of regular combat soldiers became popular in the Obama Administration as a way to keep official troop levels comparatively low while getting into more and more military operations around the world.

While President Trump has been deploying larger numbers of regular ground troops into Syria and Iraq, the special force deployments have continued apace, and those familiar with the situation say he is likely to remove current restrictions on the special forces carrying out raids into Somalia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There's a saying in French, and the approximate translation is, "The more things change, the more they remain the same", and I am seeing this as a very honest leitmotif for the Trump administration's early months.

The US government is continuing to flex its military muscle around the world to expropriate resources to which it has no moral right; make sure that the rulers in the countries which have those resources are western-centric; and insure that those resources are sold only in US dollars.

I...am not amused.

THE GLOBAL FAMINE BEGINS: UN ANNOUNCES THAT THE WORST FOOD CRISIS SINCE WORLD WAR II IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW

We always knew that this would start happening. Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa. Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya. And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa. The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done. When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe. Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how much of this famine is from natural causes, and how much is man-made, through these horrific wars affecting not only Yemen, but also many countries in Africa as well.

War is a great method for depopulation, if governmental leaders have the morals of a dead tree stump. (And you KNOW I will get massive complaints from dead tree stumps on that one!!)

WHICH "WAR TORN" COUNTRY? - U.S. SLAUGHTER IN SOMALIA, YEMEN AND SYRIA

When I saw the above tweet this morning I wondered which "war torn" country those Somalis were fleeing from when they were murdered. The tweet doesn't say. Were they fleeing from the "war torn" Somalia? Or were the fleeing from "war torn" Yemen?

It is a sad world when has to ponder such.

It tuned out these people were fleeing from both wars:

Coast guard Mohammad Al Alay told Reuters the refugees, carrying official UNHCR documents, were on their way from Yemen to Sudan when they were attacked by an Apache helicopter near the Bab Al Mandeb strait.
An Apache attack helicopter shot up the refugees' boat. There are Saudi, United Emirati and U.S. Apache helicopters in or around Yemen. It is unknown which of them ordered and which executed the strike. These helicopters, their ammunition and the service for them are a favored U.S. export to belligerent dictatorships like Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I remember something the brilliant comedian (and near-prophet) George Carlin once said, and I am paraphrasing here, but the concept was that the US government, and military, were very adept at killing brown people; unfortunately, that hasn't changed since Carlin's death.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist and witness, I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical disputes through moral, hard-won diplomatic negotiations, rather than through war.

Unfortunately, there is, apparently, a tumultuous river of blood-lust running through the veins of the American Deep State, and a deeply held conviction that killing is always the preferred way of resolving disputes, rather than negotiating. In the minds of the members of the Deed State, slaughter is potent; it creates death and fear.

And it doesn't seem to matter which party is in power; the US government's enthusiastic participation in war crimes remains the same.

The Saudi war crimes in Yemen are atrocious and unspeakable, yet the US government continues to sell the bombers, and the bombs, for this genocide, and provide guidance for the bombing runs. Additionally, because Saudi forces have closed Yemeni ports, the Yemeni people, particularly the children, are starving to death.

This is what the US complicity in Saudi war crimes has "accomplished" for the Yemeni people:

Images: wounded and dying Yemeni children from Saudi bombing strikes

Images: Yemeni children starving to death because of Saudi port blockades

The images you are seeing are real; this is the unspeakably ugly face of this country we are projecting abroad, through these horrific wars, and the US government's complicity in war crimes.

I would like to think my brother and sister Americans have not been so sedated by social media, coupled with drugs and a completely dumbed-down education, that they cannot see what is happening, and in the most peaceful way possible, tell the US government that these wars must stop.

The Empire’s Fifth Column in Africa: Morocco

In 1984 Morocco turned it’s back on Africa because the Organisation of African Unity refused to support it’s 1975 conquest of Western Sahara. For the next few decades Morocco followed the example of apartheid Israel and looked only towards Europe and America. Morocco, for example, applied (and failed) to join the European Economic Community in 1987. While today (since 2008) it is considered an “advanced” EU neighbour. And militarily it became a NATO partner in 1994 and a major non-NATO US ally in 2004.

Morocco in other words did everything it could to be an honorary white man: it shamelessly raped part of Africa and looked down on the black man. And the white man rewarded it by investing in it.

"It's A Declaration Of War": South Africa's President Calls For Confiscation Of White Land

After South Africa's embattled president Jacob Zuma pledged, in a surprising address to parliament one month ago, to break up white ownership of business and land to reduce inequality (in a State of the Nation address which was disrupted by a fistfight), it now appears that Zuma's intentions to convert what was until recently Africa's most prosperous economy into a new Zimbabwe were all too real, and as the Telegraph reports, the South African president officially called on parliament to change South Africa’s constitution to allow the expropriation of white owned land without compensation.

FLASHBACK : The Roots of the Refugee Crisis Caused by the West

“The reason so many are fleeing places such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq is that U.S. and European interventionist foreign policy has left these countries destabilized with no hopes of economic recovery,”explainedformer congressman and three-time presidential contender Ron Paul, a leading voice for a constitutional, non-interventionist U.S. foreign policy. “This mass migration from the Middle East and beyond is a direct result of the neocon foreign policy of regime change, invasion, and pushing ‘democracy’ at the barrel of a gun.”

“Contrary to what one might expect, U.S. military aid doesn’t produce willing, cooperative, or effective security partners. Instead, it incentivizes bad behavior and drives the sources of terrorism: corruption, violence, and poor governance. Unwittingly, this policy is creating its own enemies,” writes Jeremy Ravinsky.

‘Blackwater Air’ Is Back, and Flying for U.S. Special Forces

A corporate descendant of the notorious guns-for-hire firm just got a $204 million contract to support American troops in Africa.

A mercenary air force that became a symbol of the U.S. occupation of Iraq is back in action—this time in Central Africa, supporting a shadowy American U.S. Special Forces commando operation targeting the Lord’s Resistance Army.
In late January, a source on the ground in Central African Republic spotted a Sikorsky S-61 helicopter with the registry number N408RC carrying American Special Forces troops.

The LRA, a cultish band of thieves and rapists led by warlord Joseph Kony, is most active in the forested region where Central African Republic, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo meet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kony and "The Lord's Resistance Army" are the "good reason" for US troops to find themselves in Africa; the "real reason" the US is in Africa, however, is quite simple; an embarrassment of barely exploited resources, which the US government wants for itself, and its geopolitical cronies.

Zimbabwe 2.0: South Africa's President Vows To Redistribute White-Owned Land And Businesses

In a stark flashback to the events that led to Zimbabwe's terminal collapse into banana republic status, as well as unleashing hyperinflation and economic devastation, on Thursday South African President Jacob Zuma pledged to break up white ownership of business and land to reduce inequality, in a State of the Nation address which as the WSJ reports was disrupted by a fistfight, walkouts and a release of pepper spray in the parliamentary chamber. It appears South Africa is not fond of implementing "Rule 19."

Scenes of verbal and physical clashes inside the parliament, some 27 years to the day after Nelson Mandela was released from prison, as well as Zuma's contentious speech, highlight the precarious future course facing Africa’s most developed economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions South African President Zuma has to ask are, how does he do this without causing successful businesses to flee the country, and just how is he going to "redistribute" South African Land?!?

And what is he going to do about the large mining conglomerates, making billions of dollars in earnings, while paying generally low wages to their workers?

But we have seen very clearly what these kinds of moves have meant to Zimbabwe's economy, as reported in the following articles recently:


‘Death Spiral’ Looms for Zimbabwe Economy as Cash Runs Out

How South African President Zuma is going to be able to make these changes he has promised, without experiencing the problems Zimbabwe has experienced economically by making these same kinds of changes, is going to be a real challenge.

IBM TO TRAIN 25 MILLION AFRICANS FOR FREE TO BUILD WORKFORCE

International Business Machines Corp. (IW 1000/36) is ramping up its digital-skills training program to accommodate as many as 25 million Africans in the next five years, looking toward building a future workforce on the continent.

The U.S. tech giant plans to make an initial investment of 945 million rand (US$70 million) to roll out the training initiative in South Africa, a country where 31% of 15-to-24 year-olds are unemployed, according to Statistics South Africa.

At the same time, the program will be started at IBM’s offices in Nigeria, Kenya, Morocco and Egypt, enabling an expansion of the project across the rest of the continent.

“Africa will have the largest workforce by 2040 and IBM wants to lay the foundation blocks to build a digital workforce,’’ Juan Pablo Napoli, head of IBM Skills Academy, said by phone from Dubai.

“We will be providing a free cloud-based learning platform able to train people from basic computer skills to high-end app development.”

Russia’s Long-Term Strategic Goal Is Direct Access to the Atlantic Ocean

Crimea's reunification with Russia was not just a serious blow to NATO's attempt at encirclement; now that its Mediterranean fleet has a permanent home (i.e., not just "leasing"), Russia can project its own political and military influence in the region.

Moscow has already beefed up its naval base in Tartus, Syria, and has even made political inroads with Trukey, despite NATO's best efforts to sabotage relations between the two nations. And let's not forget that Cyprus now allows Russian naval vessels to use its ports.

As a result, Russia is now an uncontested power in the Mediterranean.

Russia is now poised to break out of the Mediterranean. Moscow's ultimate goal is direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, most likely with a port in Morocco.

According to Reuters, Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order that would include a temporary refugee ban and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries.

The list is expected to include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. If those countries are starting to sound familiar, there’s a reason for that.

According to four-star General Wesley Clark, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the Pentagon adopted a plan to topple the governments of seven countries; Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more I look at the first actions of the Trump presidency, the more I am terrifyingly convinced that the real winner of last November's election was the power-hungry, money mad, and deeply psychotic, American Deep State.

The hard, inescapable reality here is that the American Deep State is all about expropriating resources from countries to which it has no moral right; insuring those countries are run by US/Western-centric governments; and insuring that those resources are only sold for the US dollar.

The blood and money spent is of no consequence to those people running the American deep state, as long as their financial/geopolitical objectives are obtained.

And those American military killed or maimed for life in the process of achieving their financial goals?!? Merely collateral damage, for the sake of private corporate profit.

Of course, politicians cannot possibly say that to grieving families and friends of those killed or maimed; they are assured with such nostrums as "They died to protect this country and the American way of life."

No; these military died and were maimed for life to protect and enrich private corporate profit.

That is simply the bottom line here.

Last week’s 25-page report, that was released by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, illustrates to what extent intelligence is being “fixed around the policy”.

The Intelligence Community has been coerced into compromising its credibility to incite fear of Russia and to advance the geopolitical ambitions of deep state powerbrokers.

Risks and Opportunities for 2017

Just a few days into 2017 and we can already say with a great degree of confidence that 2017 will be a historical year. Furthermore, I submit that 2017 will be the “Year of Trump” because one of roughly three things will happen: either Trump will fully deliver on his threats and promises, or Trump deliver on some, but far from all, his threats and promises or, finally, Trump will be neutralized by the Neocon-run Congress, media, intelligence community. He might even be impeached or murdered.

Of course, there is an infinity of sub-possibilities here, but for the purpose of this discussion I will call the first option “Trump heavy”, the second one “Trump light” and the third one “Trump down”.

Review of The CIA As Organized Crime

The kind of revelation that Valentine has provided needs to be presented judiciously and dispassionately as it is shocking to the uninitiated.

If you want to learn about the CIA as a deep state within the surface state, read this book.

Priceless explanations abound in paragraphs. Valentine writes that the government wages psywar against the American public in various ways for various purposes.

The Neocon’s declaration of war against Trump

This is a political coup d’etat...an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House.

After several rather lame false starts, the Neocons have now taken a step which can only be called a declaration of war against Donald Trump.

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Within one short week we went from allegations of “Russian hacking” to “having a traitor sitting in the White House”

Obama’s ‘Farewell To Arms’ As War Presidency Ends

Self-declared liberal Americans consider Bush to be a warmongering disaster, yet somehow they hail Obama as some kind of progressive «peace president».

Eight straight years of warmongering come to an end as US President Barack Obama bows out with his «farewell to the nation» speech this week, as fawning American media dubbed his valediction.

In reality, Obama’s outgoing address should have been billed as a «farewell to arms» made by arguably one of the most belligerent presidents to ever have occupied the White House.

Only in exceptionally delusional America could such a pernicious paradox be presented as something honorable and sentimental.

Stephen F Cohen: Who Are the Real Enemies of US National Security?

If anti-Trump American forces are behind untrue allegations of this magnitude, those forces are the primary enemies of US national security and should be investigated fully and publicly.

Cohen raises the following issues, which he and Batchelor discuss:

Two conflicting interpretations are suggested, says Cohen. Either Trump is about to become a potentially seditious American president. Or powerful US forces are trying to destroy his presidency before it begins, perhaps even prevent him from taking office.

The biggest moments from Donald Trump’s fiery press conference

“It’s all fake news. It’s phony stuff. It didn’t happen, and it was gotten by opponents of ours, as you know..."

President-elect Donald Trump held his first press conference Wednesday since winning the election and answered questions about his relationship with Russia, arrangements for the future of his business, and some of his plans for the first days of his administration. Trump vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare within the “same hour,”. He also promised to name a Supreme Court nominee within the first two weeks after he takes office. The event was marked by tense exchanges...

2016: The Year of Russia’s Triumph – The Saker

2016 has been a fantastic year for Russia. Putin’s policy of slow, low-key and deliberate move and counter-move has proven to be extremely effective.

Just like European maps place Europe in the center of the planet, so do most western commentators look at the past year from a US/Europe-centered perspective. Which is fair enough. Furthermore, the AngloZionist Empire has just suffered two major disasters, the Brexit and the election of Trump.

The credit for the election of Donald Trump goes first and foremost to the American people to whom I sincerely believe the entire planet owe a heartfelt and loud “THANK YOU!!!!!”.

Not only did the British people defy the Empire and vote for a Brexit, but now the Imperial Homeland has “backstabbed” them by electing a patriot who is not interested in maintaining the global empire (or so he says, at least for the time being).

Putin’s Bear to Obama’s Turkey

Putin's stoic statesmanship speaks for itself.

Not for the first time, the contrast in character between Putin and Obama was illustrated in the latest diplomatic spat over alleged Russian hacking.

For one thing, Putin’s gracious magnanimity always in the face of American provocations shows the Russian leader to be a fine statesman and human being; whereas Obama looks like a pathetic, cheap nonentity.

President Putin made a surprise attack:

He said that his government would not take retaliatory measures. Indeed, he went further by offering seasonal goodwill greetings to President Obama, his family and the people of America, as well as repeating invitations to the children of accredited US diplomats in Russia to festivities being held at the Kremlin.

What is Henry Kissinger Up To? — Paul Craig Roberts

Until Trump relegates 'the neocons' to the ideological backwaters, Russia and China had best hold on to their strategic alliance.

Kissinger, an old cold warrior, is working to use Trump’s commitment to better relations with Russia in order to separate Russia from its strategic alliance with China.

China’s military buildup is a response to US provocations against China and US claims to the South China Sea as an area of US national interests. China does not intend to attack the US and certainly not Russia.

Get ready, because the thick of the action starts now.

The 2008 casino capitalism-provoked financial crisis, plus the American “resolve” to remake the so-called Greater Middle East through wars of choice, regime change and covert ops miserably failed.

As we wait for the dawn of the Trump era – an almost intergalactic geopolitical question mark – what’s certain is that the War Party US deep state won’t admit defeat. And the key geopolitical riddle to be answered is how strident internal American tensions will deal with the hub of progressive Eurasia integration: Russia, China and Iran.

These acts, carried out in secret two-thirds of the time, include funding the election campaigns of specific parties, disseminating misinformation and propaganda...

Bipartisan War – A new study urges more U.S. interventions

Written before the presidential election, the co-authors could not have anticipated a Donald Trump victory, but they might be hoping that the report would serve as a guideline for the new administration.

Hopefully they will be wrong in that expectation, but it is difficult at this point to see where the next White House will be going with its Middle Eastern policy.

There are a number of things wrong with the report from my perspective. Most significant, it assigns to the United States the responsibility to set and enforce standards of governance in parts of the world where the American people have little in the way of actual interests.

The real danger may be that a new Trump foreign policy could be hijacked or scuttled by anti-Trump Republicans, not only on Capitol Hill but inside the executive branch itself.

If the War Party can convert this “fake story” into the real story of 2016, then they can scuttle any Trump effort to attain the rapprochement with Russia that Trump promised to try to achieve.

Commandos Without Borders: The US's Elite Troops Partner With African Forces But Pursue US Aims

Al-Qaeda doesn’t care about borders. Neither does the Islamic State or Boko Haram. Brigadier General Donald Bolduc thinks the same way.

“[T]errorists, criminals, and non-state actors aren’t bound by arbitrary borders,” the commander of Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAFRICA) told an interviewer early this fall. “That said, everything we do is not organized around recognizing traditional borders. In fact, our whole command philosophy is about enabling cross-border solutions, implementing multi-national, collective actions and empowering African partner nations to work across borders to solve problems using a regional approach.”

COMMANDOS WITHOUT BORDERS: THE US'S ELITE TROOPS PARTNER WITH AFRICAN FORCES BUT PURSUE US AIMS

A SOCAFRICA planning document obtained by TomDispatch offers a window onto the scope of these "multi-national, collective actions" carried out by America's most elite troops in Africa. The declassified but heavily redacted secret report, covering the years 2012-2017 and acquired via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), details nearly 20 programs and activities -- from training exercises to security cooperation engagements -- utilized by SOCAFRICA across the continent. This wide array of low-profile missions, in addition to named operations and quasi-wars, attests to the growing influence and sprawling nature of US Special Operations forces (SOF) in Africa.

America’s Elite Troops Partner With African Forces But Pursue US Aims By Nick Turse

Publicly, the command claims that it conducts its operations to "promote regional stability and prosperity," while Bolduc emphasizes that its missions are geared toward serving the needs of African allies. The FOIA files make clear, however, that U.S. interests are the command’s principal and primary concern – a policy in keeping with the America First mindset and mandate of incoming commander-in-chief Donald J. Trump – and that support to "partner nations" is prioritized to suit American, not African, needs and policy goals.

Shades of Gray

Bolduc is fond of saying that his troops – Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets, among others – operate in the "gray zone," or what he calls "the spectrum of conflict between war and peace." Another of his favored stock phrases is: "In Africa, we are not the kinetic solution" – that is, not pulling triggers and dropping bombs. He also regularly takes pains to say that "we are not at war in Africa – but our African partners certainly are."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, US government troops are in combat in Yemen; Iraq; Syria; Afghanistan; Libya; Somalia; Cameroon, Djibouti; South Sudan; and Niger?!?

Forgive me, but am I having a "senior moment", in recollecting, Constitutionally, that only the US Congress has the power to declare war?!? Well, checking my facts, I found this at Wikipedia:

War Powers Clause

But under the Bushbama Presidencies, and particularly after 9/11, all of a sudden, you have Congress abandoning this responsibility entirely, and from the moment of the passage of the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq" in 2002, you have seen the ability to start, or enhance wars, swiftly move from the Legislative branch of the American government to the Executive branch.

Africa has an abundance of riches, in terms of its natural resources; and ultimately, all wars are economic.

These military actions in Africa, by the US military, are certainly not about African nations being able to fulfill their own destinies, and develop their economies to take care of their citizens.

They are created to expropriate the continent's resources, to which the US government has absolutely no moral right; make insure that they are controlled by US/Western-centric leaders and corporations; and only sold in US dollars.

Neocon Panic and Agony – THE SAKER

This is not a Democrat vs Republican issue, but a “deep state vs The People of the USA” issue.

There are clear signs that the Neocons running the AngloZionist Empire and its “deep state” are in a state of near panic and their actions indicate they are truly terrified.

On the home front, the Neocons have resorted to every possible dirty trick on the book to try to prevent Donald Trump from ever getting into the White House
Most experts agree that none of these tactics are going to work. So this begs the question of whether the Neocons are stupid, whether they think that they can succeed or what their true objective is.

The U.S. media, in a matter of hours, altered course from concentrating on «fake news» about innocent pizzerias being linked to child sexual exploitation to spotlighting «fake intelligence» about Russia’s alleged cyber-espionage operation designed to elect Donald Trump president. The CIA leaked to The Washington Post, the owner of which has a $600 million contract with the CIA to provide cloud computing, findings of a secret report on Russia’s alleged «fixing» of the 2016 U.S. presidential election to favor Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s campaign – fully supported by President Obama — spent a whopping $1.2 billion and floundered ignominiously at the US presidential election.

While we are focusing on Ukraine, I was particularly interested in a statement made by a member of the Trump team about the 200-year relationship between Russia and the United States: the point was made that Russia supported what became the United States, against the French and the English empires. And that was Tsar Alexander I!...

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis and the Spirit of Trumpism

When it comes to foreign policy, the incoming Trump administration displays a split personality.

Mattis exemplifies the dual nature of the new administration.
This was readily apparent during the campaign, when, on the one hand, Donald Trump told us we were lied into the Iraq war, that NATO is “obsolete,” and that we have no business supporting regime change in Syria – and, on the other hand, he declared that he would crush ISIS, that it was a mistake to leave Iraq, and that we have to “rebuild our military,” as if we don’t already spend as much as the top ten defense spenders.

Obama Redefines Terrorism to Expand Targeted Killings in Somalia

The outgoing Obama administration recently broadened the umbrella of the war on terror by placing the jihadist Somali group al-Shabaab (the youth) under armed conflict legislation drafted by Congress to target terrorist groups involved with the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

9-11; the one-size-fits-all excuse for war!

Nov 28 11:00

Obama Expands Global War on Terror to Somalia

With just over a month left in office, President Obama has once again expanded America’s global war on terror, announcing that he has formally added Somali militant faction al-Shabaab into the “perpetrators of 9/11” war authorization from back in 2001.

Passed on September 14 of 2001, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) was intended to authorize the war against al-Qaeda, but officials have used as the legal justification of myriad unrelated American wars around the world, of which al-Shabaab is just the latest.

The AUMF authorized war against any nations or organizations involved in 9/11. Al-Shabaab didn’t exist until years later, with the group forming in 2007 and becoming a US-listed terror group in 2008. President Obama, however, seems comfortable continuing to abuse the AUMF for any war that strikes his fancy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please give me a moment to wrap my brain around this; am I correctly understanding that Obama is adding Somalia's Al-Shahab to the "perpetrators of 9/11" terrorist list RETROACTIVELY, in light of the fact the group didn't exist until 2007?!?

Is Al-Shabab a "threat" to the homeland of the US in any way?!?

Absolutely not.

But here are some interesting facts about the country, the first, courtesy of google.com:

Somalia has untapped reserves of numerous natural resources, including uranium, iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt and natural gas. Due to its proximity to the oil-rich Gulf Arab states such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the nation is also believed to contain substantial unexploited reserves of oil.

Secondly, as reported on 4 October of this year at nationalinterest.org:

Al Shabaab, the most powerful Islamist group in Somalia, aligned itself with Al Qaeda in 2012. But in contrast to the globally-oriented Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab has focused on military and political objectives in Somalia and neighboring countries, demonstrating a nationalist brent that the broader Al-Qaeda movement lacks. Nonetheless, the U.S. military has conducted drone strikes on Islamist militants in Somalia since at least 2011. But lately, American intervention has escalated. Both the frequency of — and casualties from — U.S. drone strikes in Somalia increased dramatically. No fewer than 194 people have died in American drone strikes in Somalia as of September 2016. That’s a tenfold increase over 2015, according to the United Kingdom-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The U.S. military and intelligence services have also deployed manned warplanes from bases in Ethiopia and Djibouti, as well as from ships at sea, in order to strike targets and collect intelligence. American and British commandos have been active on Somali soil since at least 2007 — and probably as early as 2003 — for individual reconnaissance and kill-or-capture missions. As with the drone strikes, ground activity has increased markedly in recent years. In addition to unilateral missions aimed at high-value targets, U.S. Special Operations Forces have been embedding with Somali and Ethiopian troops as “advisers” — and have even found themselves in gunfights with Al Shabaab fighters. This practice seems to have begun in earnest in 2015, when Pentagon press releases began to refer to “self-defense strikes” by drones and other aircraft in support of U.S. troops and their allies after they had come under fire. This choice of words is not without its ironies, as a close reading of these reports makes clear that in most — if not all — cases, U.S. troops were involved in offensive missions, where return fire was practically guaranteed.

Simply put, the US government is at war in Somalia to prevent its resources from being controlled by Al-Shahab elements, in order to control the sale of those resources by US approved trans-national corporations, and prevent them from being sold internationally in other than the US petrodollar.

It is therefore incumbent upon each and every single patriotic American who cares about the future of their country (especially federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutor offices) to immediately begin to identify, isolate, marginalize, investigate, indict, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate all Neo-Conservatives as an internal and national security threat to the welfare of the United States of America.

Foibles, Fables and Failures – The Financial Press and its Keepers

The Presidential elections made millions of American voters starkly aware of the mendacity of the mass media and the corruption of the Clinton political elite.

The world’s largest billionaire bankers had bankrolled Secretary Hillary Clinton, the ‘million-dollar-a-speech’ War Goddess. They had bet heavily against the populist-nationalist Donald Trump and they lost. Their pre-paid political manifestos, addressed to the readers of the NY Times, flopped and sputtered: Most readers and investors in domestic markets had placed their bets on ‘The Donald’. Their domestic celebrations pumped up the market after the election.

The unimaginable had happened: George Soros had bet and lost! The ‘deplorable’ electorate preferred the obnoxious nationalist to the obnoxious speculator. ‘Who’d a thunk it?’

Trump loses half his transition team in purge of lobbyists

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington ...
The Trump transition team has lost nearly half its staff and volunteers in a matter of days since instituting a ban on registered lobbyists at the end of last week, the Daily Mail has learned.

‘All the lobbyists are gone,’ said one source familiar with the transition. ‘Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could count [them] maybe on one hand.’

The source estimated that the number of staffers and volunteers working on the transition plummeted from around 250 late last week to less than 125 on Tuesday.

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

Maybe the internet will not succumb to the latest Western crusade against “fake news”.
You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice.

And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook
The Mainstream Media (“MSM”), fully owned and co-opted by the Deep State Plutocrat/ Oligarch Elite, are extremely unhappy that Donald Trump won the 2016 Election.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

‘We are at war with Russia’: EU Parliament resolution to counter Russian media

The resolution is a sign of the “political degradation” of the western “idea of democracy” - Putin

For decades the EU has been lecturing Russia and touting freedom of speech as one of its core principles, but hypocritically dismissed it as an unnecessary luxury once their narrative was challenged, RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said.

“We of course are extremely disappointed, this is really outrageous,” Simonyan said on the subject of the EU’s so-called anti-Russia propaganda resolution.

The Liberation of the Slaves

Donald Trump can find better Jewish allies than Zionists or liberal NWO Jews.

Donald Trump’s electoral victory unleashed pent-up tectonic energies on an unprecedented scale.

The world has been changed, much more than could be expected from any election of a US president. Just a short time has passed since election day, but it appears that the New World Order has received a shattering blow. There is a great feeling of freedom in the air, as if the vote broke the chains of a generation, and we suddenly found ourselves free.

Fall and Rise of the Forgotten ‘Deplorables’

We’re in for a few surprises, for better or worse...

As might be anticipated, in the wake of Trump’s historic victory — a win that for all sorts of reasons has shaken the Beltway establishment and beyond to its core, and one that political junkies will be fixating on for years — there’s been much handwringing about how so many folks got the outcome so wrong. All of this has been accompanied by the obligatory hyperventilating and existential angst about what Trump’s election portends for the future.

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

President-elect Donald Trump in his April 27 foreign policy speech, in which he said:

“My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations. That’s why I also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect résumés but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war. We have to look to new people.

“We have to look to new people because many of the old people frankly don’t know what they’re doing, even though they may look awfully good writing in The New York Times or being watched on television.”

Trump Prepares to Take Over the Fed

Now their little party is coming to an end.

In Donald Trump’s first four years as president, he will not only choose three judges for the Supreme Court, he’ll also pick five of the seven members on the Fed Board of Governors. It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future. With both houses of Congress firmly in the GOP’s grip, we could see the most powerful central bank in the world transformed into a purely political institution that follows the diktats of one man.

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

Tell Eliot Cohen to get lost.

For the central canon of the neocon creed has been and always will be a militant internationalism.

The kudzu vine is one of the most invasive plants in existence: you cut it back, but that just emboldens it! You dig it up, but it keeps returning, stronger than ever. It is, in short, the horticultural equivalent of the neoconservatives, who have survived in spite of leading us over a cliff in Iraq, being roundly repudiated by the voters in the last three presidential elections.

Can Trump find enough fresh thinkers to do the job?

Trump’s Slim Chance for Greatness. Donald Trump must decide – and decide quickly – whether he wants to be a great U.S. President or a robo-signature machine affixing his name to whatever legislation comes from congressional Republicans and a nodding figurehead acquiescing to more neoconservative foreign policy adventures.

Or, to put it in a vernacular that Trump might use, does he want to be “Paul Ryan’s bitch” on domestic policies? And does he want to surrender his foreign policy to the “wise guys” of Washington’s neocon establishment.

The Donald Trump Cabinet: He Is Not A Masochist

He may temporarily forgive, but he does not forget. This rule of thumb has served him well in transforming his father’s multimillion dollar but fledgling real estate company into the multi-billion dollar international real estate powerhouse that it currently is.

So what gives in regards to the names of his Cabinet that are being floated around?

Mind you, some of the list below was gleaned from the New York Times, so a huge grain of salt should be taken before one delves into this analysis.

Trump should resist neocon & shadow gov’t influence to justify people’s hopes – Ron Paul

Trump’s ability to honor his campaign rhetoric will depend on the role of the so-called “shadow government.”

“Unfortunately, there has been several neoconservatives that are getting closer to Trump. And if he gets his advice from them then I do not think that is a good sign,” Paul told the host of RT’s Crosstalk show Peter Lavelle.

What Donald Trump Needs To Do

There has never been a better-suited and more experienced President when it comes to these issues...

Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, there are a lot of things he needs to do.

He has seen firsthand the unseemly underbelly of the various Deep State actors that have fought tooth and nail to both undermine and character assassinate him, as well as destroy him personally and professionally.

But Donald Trump is made of legendary stuff, and not only endured these constant and underhanded attacks, but also exposed and destroyed them all, one by one.

“I want the entire corrupt Washington establishment to hear the words we are about to say. When we win on November 8, we are going to drain the swamp” Trump said.

“Tomorrow the American working class will strike back.” Trump said.

Yes, the onslaught of the media upon Trump has been exceedingly unfair, but he survived it.

What is even more important, you survived it, it does not matter what the polls say: they say what the newspapers tell them to say. Even people answer the polls according to the media prognoses: they are shy of saying they would vote for a man who … But at the moment of actual vote, they do what they know is right for them. You have a very good chance to win, and to defeat the witch and her supporters.

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES ARE RUNNING AL-QAEDA CAMPS IN NORTH AFRICA — UN CONSULTANT

An unpublished report by a government advisor and UN consultant, obtained exclusively by INSURGE intelligence, accuses Western and Algerian security services of complicity in al-Qaeda terrorist activity across North Africa. The academic report focuses on damning evidence that a devastating al-Qaeda terrorist attack on the Tigantourine gas plant near In Amenas, Algeria, was orchestrated by Algeria’s secret services, with the knowledge of US, French and British intelligence. A draft copy of the report, due to be published later this month, has been seen exclusively by INSURGE intelligence.

Lemmings and Republicans – Alan Ned Sabrosky

So why are so many Republican leaders doing all they can do to diminish Trump and give the election to Clinton ?

For conservatives and Republicans, a win by Hillary Clinton in November would be a catastrophe — and not just because people like Miley Cyrus and Al Sharpton would not leave the country.

It would mean continued assaults on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, especially the latter. Higher taxes and more welfare. More war — Hillary Clinton’s defense secretary-in-waiting, Michelle Flournoy, has openly said as much. And it would mean her appointment of at least one justice to the US Supreme Court, and perhaps as many as four, creating a liberal block of five to seven justices that will put its stamp on the country for a generation or more.

Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street Fundraising Benefited From Loophole In Federal Anti-Corruption Rule

‘Particularly Vulnerable To Pay To Play Practices’

Despite an anti-corruption rule that was designed to reduce the financial industry’s political power, top officials from the investment firm BlackRock hosted Hillary Clinton at campaign fundraisers earlier this year.

The cash — which poured in through a loophole in the law — came in as BlackRock’s federal contracts to manage billions of dollars of retiree assets will be up for renewal during the next president’s term.

Citigroup bank chose Obama’s 2008 cabinet – WikiLeaks

The single biggest beneficiary was Citigroup, which was given $45 billion in cash in the form of a government stock purchase, plus a $306 billion government guarantee to back up its worthless mortgage-related assets.

One month before the presidential election of 2008, the giant Wall Street bank Citigroup submitted to the Obama campaign a list of its preferred candidates for cabinet positions in an Obama administration. This list corresponds almost exactly to the eventual composition of Barack Obama’s cabinet.

The memorandum, revealed by WikiLeaks in a recent document release from the email account of John Podesta, who currently serves as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, was written by Michael Froman, who was then an executive with Citigroup and currently serves as US trade representative. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team.

America Is Now At Its Greatest Risk Of a False Flag Attack

Never in America’s history has she been in more danger of a “false flag” attack from her enemies, both foreign and domestic, than she is now.

America has been thoroughly infiltrated by a mighty and wealthy foreign power and menace, while her people are suffering financially, and she is now poised to be sacrificed on the altar of history for a one world government headquartered overseas.

The Neo-Cons simply can not be trusted, as they work for the Plutocrats, who desperately want to hold on to their power, and will not willingly relinquish it to the People by way of Donald Trump and his Populist Revolt and Uprising.

U.S. using Tunisia to conduct drone operations in Libya: U.S. sources

The United States has begun using a Tunisian air base to conduct surveillance drone operations inside Libya, the latest expansion of its campaign against Islamic State militants in North Africa, U.S. government sources said on Wednesday.

The unarmed drones have been flying out of Tunisia since late June and are now part of a U.S. air defense in support of Libyan pro-government forces fighting to push Islamic State fighters out of their stronghold in the Libyan city of Sirte, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The use of the Tunisian base, which was first reported by The Washington Post, extends the U.S. military's ability to gather intelligence on Islamic State in Libya, the U.S. sources said. Other locations in Africa where U.S. drones are launched, including Niger and Djibouti, are farther away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Libya has been engulfed in a monstrous civil war since the US assassination of Qaddafi can be laid nearly solely at the feet of Hillary Clinton, who was advocating for his assassination, using the RPT (responsibility to protect) excuse.

President Obama listened to her, and ordered the strike; now look where the US is in Libya, thanks to Clinton's horrific error in judgement here.

IF she got Libya and Qaddafi so wrong as Secretary of State, it scares the crap out of me to even contemplate what else she will get so wrong, geopolitically, as potentially the next President of the United States.

The penultimate goal is total militarization of the western world, to prevent and suppress protests and revolts .

Obama might just stay on for another term. He has all the experience it needs to create more chaos and more division to conquer than any of his predecessors. He is also an obedient servant to those that pull the strings and watch through the eye on top of the pyramid, so clearly depicted in the US dollar bill, the symbol for Zionist-Freemason total hegemony. But importantly, he, like Hillary, would most likely not hesitate to push the Red Bottom, when asked to do so by their masters.

The Trump movement is an existential threat to the established order that consistently adopts the agenda and practices from the cabal of the NWO globalists.

THE NEW U.S. WAY OF WAR

A recommendable New York Times piece looks at the mostly hidden way the U.S. is now waging wars. The example is Somalia, where the U.S. has been at war with the people of that country for over 25 years. But, as the authors note, the same modus operandi applies elsewhere.

The Obama administration has intensified a clandestine war in Somalia over the past year, using Special Operations troops, airstrikes, private contractors and African allies in an escalating campaign against Islamist militants in the anarchic Horn of Africa nation.
Would that "anarchic" nation Somalia still be "anarchic" if the U.S. would end its endless fighting there? That is very unlikely. Without outer interference Somalia would have been peaceful again many years ago. But the war continues, run not with regular U.S. forces, but with mercenaries, proxies, drones and a few U.S. Special Forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fighting wars this way, either directly or indirectly, for the US government, means never, ever having to say you're sorry for the war crimes you have committed, or for the torture you have inflicted, just because you can, and with absolute impunity!!
