Stephen Lendman ~ Cold War 2.0

Steve Lendman  April 22 2014

steveLendmanA previous article said welcome to Cold War 2.0. The first one never ended. Since Soviet Russia’s 1991 dissolution, Western policy remained hard-wired in place.

Putin and Obama are geopolitical opposites. They’re world’s apart. Their ideologies clash. They represent conflicting values.

Putin defends Russian sovereignty. He opposes US imperial lawlessness. He affirms UN Charter and other rule of law principles.

Obama claims a divine right to pursue unchallenged global hegemony. Washington considers Putin public enemy number one. At risk is potential East/West confrontation.

Russia bashing persists. It’s intense. It rages daily. It exceeds the worst of Soviet era levels.

Daily vilifying reinvents the Evil Empire. It’s back to the future. It doesn’t surprise. Neocons infest Washington. Business as usual continues.

Recklessness defines US policy. At stake is world peace. On April 19, Putin said there’s “nothing to prevent us from normalizing (US/Russian) relations and (reestablishing) normal cooperation.”

At the same time, he knows how Washington operates. He knows its dark side. He knows what hasn’t existed in a century or more.

He knows it takes a giant leap of faith to expect America to act responsibly. It hasn’t throughout its sordid history. Why expect change now.

Ben Fulford (Apr 21 2014) ~ Cabal Split, Unable To Act Despite Deadline

BenjaminFulford.net

It is now clear that the cabal that has ruled the West is in disarray and is unable to act despite a very real surrender deadline given to them. The European power brokers like the Pope and the Queen support world peace and a campaign to end poverty and stop environmental destruction. However, Rockefeller, Bush and the other American oligarchs are acting like deer frozen in the headlights, unable or unwilling to take action. The same can be said of the heads of the Pentagon and the agencies.

Let there be no doubt about it, the United States of America has degenerated into a rogue nation ruled by Satan worshipping gangsters and is the black hole from which most of the world’s misery emerges.

Removing the public face of the US oligarchy, Barack Hussein Obama, raises the question of “what do you replace him with?” If the heads of the military industrial complex do not act with a unified plan, the answer is likely to be chaos, turmoil and possibly even civil war in the US.

The best hope now lies with the State governments who now have the required two-thirds support to demand a conference to rewrite the constitution of the United States of America. Continue reading

Henrik Palmgren Interviews John B. Wells ~ Corporate Media, Globalists & Putin’s Russia [Audio]

Red Ice Radio  April 17 2014

John B. Wells is the host of the radio show, Caravan to Midnight. He is an actor, musician, writer, investigative journalist, composer, martial artist, aviator and broadcaster. John also performed weekend duties as the host of the nationally syndicated overnight radio show Coast to Coast AM.

We’ll begin the hour with John discussing his recent exit from Coast to Coast AM and monster corporate media outlets such as Clear Channel. For some radio programs, the only thing safe to talk about is that which can’t be proven. John talks about how information is being used as a weapon. Then, we’ll talk about how patriotic, pro-US Constitution Americans are being marked as a threat while the nation tumbles into the ultimate sacrifice for the “common good.” Continue reading

Greg Hunter ~ Weekly News Wrap Up April 18 2014 [Video & Transcript]

USAWatchdog

A deal has been reached over the Ukraine crisis, and that will supposedly “de-escalate tensions and restore security.”  This deal is between the EU, U.S., Russia and Ukraine.  I guess this is good news, but I would call it extremely temporary.  This is supposed to lead to disarming the pro-Russian militia and returning control of government buildings in Eastern Ukraine.  

Loyal Ukrainians and pro-Russian factions have been going at it, and I am not sure this deal is going to “de-escalate tensions.”  Even President Obama is skeptical.  He said that the U.S. has to be ready to “respond to what continue to be interference by the Russians.”   The military option is off the table according to the White House.  So, that leaves sanctions that nobody wants, especially in the EU.  Massive amounts of business are done between Russia and the EU.  The global economy is weak at best, and in some places in Europe, you can call it a depression.  Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has,“the right to use military force in Ukraine.”  Russia is going to end up with much of Ukraine, and I do not think there is much anyone is going to do about it.   Continue reading

Paul Craig Roberts ~ Privatization Is A Ramp For Corruption and Insouciance Is a Ramp for War

PaulCraigRoberts  April 16 2014

PaulCraigRobertsLibertarian ideology favors privatization. However, in practice privatization is usually very different in result than libertarian ideology postulates. Almost always, privatization becomes a way for well-connected private interests to loot both the public purse and the general welfare.

Most privatizations, such as those that have occurred in France and UK during the neoliberal era, and in Greece today and Ukraine tomorrow, are lootings of public assets by politically-connected private interests.

Another form of privatization is to turn traditional government functions, such as prison operation and many supply functions of the armed services, such as feeding the troops, over to private companies at a large increase in cost to the public. Essentially, the libertarian ideology is used to provide lucrative public contracts to a few favored persons who then reward the politicians. This is called “free enterprise.”

The privatization of prisons in the US is an example of the extraordinary cost and injustice of privatization. Privatization of prisons requires ever higher rates of incarceration in order to build profitability. The US, supposedly “a land of liberty” has by far the highest incarceration rates of all countries. The “free” US has not only the highest percentage of its population in prison but also the highest absolute number. “Authoritarian” China with four times the US population has fewer citizens in prison.

This article shows how well prison privatization works for well-connected private interests:http://www.globalresearch.ca/privatization-of-the-us-prison-system/5377824

It also shows the extraordinary shame, corruption, and discredit that prison privatization has brought to the US.

A few years ago I wrote about the conviction of two judges who were paid by privatized juvenile detention facilities to sentence kids to their facilities.

As Alain of Lille and later Karl Marx said, “Money is all.” In America money is all that is
important to the political system and to the bulk of the population. Essentially, America has no other values.

Ben Fulford (Apr 14 2014) ~ “Surrender Or Die,” That Is The Choice The US Cabal Government Now Faces

BenjaminFulford.net

The criminal cabal that hijacked the Republic of the United States of America and turned it into a global pariah have been cornered to a point where they must either surrender or die. This is becoming obvious on many levels. For example, last week even the member nations of the globalist International Monetary Fund lined up 187 to 1 against the United States in an effort to get them to relinquish their veto control of that institution.

Even more troubling for the families that control the Federal Reserve Board has been the massive ongoing attack on their petrodollar. In particular, the situation in the Ukraine is turning into a historical cabal defeat.

President Vladimir Putin of Russia has begun insisting that Europe and the Ukraine pay for their supplies of Russian gas with something other than US dollars. The Europeans have little choice but to agree to this, thus sealing the fate of the petrodollar.

US Corporate Government President Barack Obama, working under orders from puppet masters like George Soros, tried convincing the Middle Eastern oil producing countries to drive down the price of oil and bankrupt Russia but was rebuffed.

Obama then turned around and went to the Chinese where, according to Chinese government sources, he offered to hand over to China control over all of South East Asia and Japan if China agreed to use the People’s Liberation Army to put pressure on Russia. The Chinese, however, are fully aware that Obama represents the same regime that tried to kill most of China’s population with ethnically targeted bio-weapons a few years ago and thus will not make a deal with them against Russia.

The Chinese however, are insisting that the United Nations move its headquarters to Asia and reform its security council so that it more accurately represents the population of the planet earth. They are also coming to the conclusion that the cabal has no intention of handing over control of the World Bank or the IMF so they are preparing to set up a new institution that will have far more funds available to it than both the World Bank and the IMF combined.

Sartre ~ Western Secularism vs. Russian Christian Revival

BATR  April 7 2014

“The continual work of the Russian Orthodox Church will effect the revival of Christianity in our nation. Thanks to the Orthodox faith Russian culture through the years has acquired Biblical values on which the system of moral ideals for our nation is built.” Dimitry Medvedev -

PutinAtChurchWhen defending Western Civilization, some confuse that secular humanism, practiced as the current dominate popular culture, represents that lineage. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The decadence and decline in the West is undeniable. Yet the heritage upon which European civilization is based, owes a profound debt of gratitude to the societies that developed out of the brute force of empire and adopted principles of natural law and individual dignity. A direct correlation to the gospel of Christ becomes the centerpiece of this glorious tradition of universal brotherhood, that keeps man’s inhumanity to man in check.

The well-documented failures of institutions and regimes would have been far worse if left to the devices of pagan appetites or atheist’s hubris. However, the memory of the eternal struggle is short lived in the minds of most people. Confusion reigns because of a lack of knowledge, perspective and especially will, to admit that the New World Order is the invention of satanic factions that lust for control of the entire planet and beyond.

Therefore, the extraordinary essay by Pat Buchanan, Putin vs. Cultural Marxism: Whose Side Is God on Now?, is a required penance for all those who have sinned. Continue reading

Ben Fulford (Apr 7 2014) ~ Lots Of High Level Threats And Murder Taking Place As Cabalists Turn On Each Other

BenjaminFulford.net

High level cabalists have begun killing and threatening each other in a sign that their unified centralized control grid is falling apart. The recent shooting at Ft. Hood was an attack against George Bush Sr. and other members of the Bush clan, according to Rothschild and Rockefeller family sources. However, it is not clear if the attack was successful because of a total information black-out following the incident. The death of a CIA agent last week is also believed to have been part of an anti-Bush/Nazi campaign now underway.

Then last week a photograph of a T-shirt with the number 44 written on it being held in front of President Obama was widely publicized.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/score-hears-president-new-jersey-article-1.1746800

The number 44 symbolizes death in many Asian languages and the T-shirt incident appears to have been to remind Obama that he needed to stop blocking the new financial system.

Also, the murder of former ABN Ambro Bank CEO Jan Peter Shmittmann, his wife and his daughter was part of an ongoing Rothschild plan to eliminate any people who would testify against them, according to CIA sources. The list contains 250 names, including 50 bankers, the sources said. The Rothschilds also believe the Rockefeller family is about to be rounded up and jailed.
