Why The West Hates Putin - It's More Than What You're Told
 
 
 
 
 
JUNE 7, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
Russophobia in America today is as intense as it was at the height of Cold War when terrified school kids had "Duck and Cover" drills and the public was obsessed with bomb shelters. However, all the drama about Russian hacking and collusion are a smokescreen. The real conflict is about geopolitical power struggle for world domination, which involves hundreds of trillions of dollars, massive egos of Machiavellian elites, and nations driven by memory of the past and visions of the future.
 
Here's the big picture: it's a geopolitical battle of USA+EU versus Russia+China. The US and EU are governed by the same banking and military-industrial overlords, while Russia and China - two independent countries - have made an alliance out of necessity. Why? If Russia falls, China will be the next. Get the bear, you get the dragon, and thus you get the world.
 
But here is the kicker: the globalists did trap the bear in 1991 when the USSR failed. However, rather than befriending the bear, they caged it and then starved, tortured and humiliated it for the next eight years. That's when the bear tore down the cage and fought back.
 
Betrayal in the 1990s
 
The biggest theft of the century happened in Russia in the 1990s, and the perpetrators were Wall Street shysters who promised miracles of capitalism, but instead dismantled the entire country. In the name of privatization, Russia was put up for fire sale 1. Everything you can imagine - oil/gas fields, gold/diamond mines, airlines, media, factories, you-name-it - were sold at 1/1000th of their fair price. A handful of Russians, carefully selected by the US, ended up with assets worth hundreds of billions of dollars. In exchange, each Russian got a "share" worth $7. The US taxpayers even subsidized this disgusting racket.
 
Under this shock therapy administered by American vulture capitalists, Russia's GDP fell 40%. The country was loaded up with crushing debt from the IMF and the World Bank, and poverty and suicide soared.
 
The Russian military was in shambles and was badly losing wars to Islamic terrorists in Chechnya and Dagestan. Oh, these terrorists were the same Mujahideen from Afghanistan and were still funded by Saudi Arabia and armed by the US 2. To add insult to the injury, in 1999, the West bombed Serbia - Russia's staunch ally - and also gave NATO membership to three countries close to Russia.
 
Most Russian politicians, including President Yeltsin, were bought off and controlled by Washington, as Bill Clinton bragged to Tony Blair. 3
 
Putin's Empire
 
Under these dreadful circumstances, Putin became the Acting President of Russia on Dec 31, 1999. Over the next few years, he took on the powerful oligarchs, corrupt politicians and the elites who formed the fifth column. With authoritarian KGB-style, he assassinated some pro-Western journalists, jailed opponents and consolidated his power. Putin was helped by raising oil prices, but he used the new wealth wisely. He grew the Russian economy, built up gold and foreign reserves, and significantly reduced the national debt.
 
Between 1999 and 2014, Russia's GDP grew 10-fold 4 and its world rank surged from 22nd to 8th
 
Russia's debt-to-GDP ratio fell from 100% in 1999 to 17% in 2016 5
 
Foreign reserves grew from virtually nothing to the 6th largest in the world 6
 
Gold reserves grew to become the 6th largest in the world as well 7
 
Putin started RT - Russia's own global news channel, banned GMO, kicked out George Soros, and fought Cultural Marxism. He built more than 15,000 churches, encouraged families to have more children, and banned transgender/gay propaganda to children.
 
Finally, Putin rebuilt Russia's military, crushed Islamic terrorists and, in a geopolitical stunner that transpired in Syria, prevailed against a mighty coalition of the US, Israel, UK, France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and 40,000 jihadists. 8
 
Putin's diplomacy has also been remarkable. After the 2014 US sanctions and the precipitous fall in oil prices, every pundit and politician predicted the isolation of Putin and the demise of Russia's economy. Fast forward to 2017, 144 US corporations and 62 countries attended Russia's Economic Conference in St. Petersburg. In France, the new President, Macron, chose Putin for the first visit of a foreign leader.
 
In other words, Putin made Russia great again. This is why his approval rating is still over 80%.
 
Russia under attack
 
However, the globalists have had their own victories as well. In 2003-2004, pro-Russia governments in Georgia and Ukraine were overthrown by George Soros' color revolutions. In 2014, the US staged a violent coup in Ukraine, overthrew a democratically elected leader, and replaced him with an unelected billionaire.
 
Ukraine has been a CIA target for decades. As Brzezinski wrote in his book, The Grand Chessboard, Russia will be paralyzed without access to Crimea and the Black Sea - the only Russian gateway to the Mediterranean Sea. Sensing danger after the 2013 coup, Putin quickly held a referendum in Crimea and annexed it. (More than 75% of Crimeans speak Russian as their native language, and Ukraine is vastly poorer than Russia, so the election result was predictable). 9
 
Another area where Russia was backstabbed: NATO expansion. Contrary to the promises made during the dissolution of the USSR, NATO has added 13 new European countries, which are all potential hosts for US/NATO military bases 10. Many of these countries are now part of the missile defense system. On the other side of Russia, the US has deployed THAAD in South Korea. What this means is that the US could first launch a nuclear attack against Russia, and then shoot down the missiles that Russia fires in response. The entire situation is extremely volatile and dangerous - Russia has more than 7,000 nuclear weapons.
 
All this bullying is just a symptom of the wounded egos of globalists who have failed in their attempts to conquer Russia. Not once, but six times in the last 200 years-1812, 1856, 1905, World War I, World War II, and the Wall Street takeover of Russia in the 1990s.
 
Rothschilds, Bolshevism and Hitler
 
In 1812, funded by the Rothschilds, Napoleon invaded Russia. In 1856, Britain and France attacked and took over Crimea-for the same reason that the US staged a coup in Ukraine in 2013.
 
In 1905, banksters on Wall Street - Jacob Schiff and others - funded Japan to attack Russia 11. In the midst of the war, the banksters tried to foment a revolution and overthrow the Czar. The guy who led the revolution was Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) 12. He would fail in 1905 and flee Russia, but would come back in 1917 using the same playbook, but using Germany instead of Japan.
 
Before World War I, Trotsky and Lenin raised millions of dollars from international banksters. Trotsky visited New York and got an American passport so he could sneak back into Russia 13. Flush with cash from capitalists, the communists (Bolsheviks) killed the Czar during World War I and quickly signed a peace treaty with Germany. Danke Schoen!
 
Thus, you see, the evil empire of the Soviet Union was a creation of America and Europe-a fact that is erased from the history books. The Soviet Union was a result of a civil war fomented by outside forces - a civil war in which the bad guys won. Bolshevism was a foreign virus that invaded Russia, killed tens of millions of Russians and tried to destroy Christianity - Russia's religion for over 1000 years. However, when Americans think of "Russians," they are only taught to think of the Soviet Union.
 
Fast forward to World War II, it was again Europe (Germany) that attacked Russia. 20 million Russians died fighting the Nazis, two million just in the city of Leningrad 14. Russia fought the Nazis for four years and destroyed 70% of Hitler's army. However, the US came at the end of the game (in 1944) and got all the accolade for "defeating the Nazis."
 
Moving Forward
 
Knowing all this, an objective person would not cast Russia as the enemy of the West. Russia will be an enemy only if we demand its subservience. Russia and China are determined to preserve their sovereignty. To that end, they are working on their own financial system (credit card, banking etc.) and international alliances 15. They are also trying to break free from the petrodollar system, which lets the US borrow trillions without repercussions. Of course, the globalists detest this challenge to the New World Order.
 
Since World War II, America's knee-jerk response to any diplomatic challenge has been to bully or bomb. Eisenhower warned us and we ignored it: America's military-industrial-banking-media complex has vast and undue influence. JFK advocated détente with Russia and withdrawal of troops from Vietnam, and he was reviled by the Deep State. Trump is facing a lot of animosity from the Establishment for the same reason. Globalists endlessly preach about the wonders of diversity, but hate countries who think different.
 
Global conflicts and wars are very addictive for the military-security complex, which craves 800 military bases around the world, $600 billion a year budget, and $35 billion/year of weapons export. Wars also mean massive debts for nations, which is exactly what the international banksters want. Global corporations are drawn to a unipolar world, since that guarantees them monopoly, cheap labor and raw materials, and access to customers. Social engineers and Cultural Marxists rely on monolithic corporate media to spread the same propaganda all over the world. Will the confluence of these forces refuse to accept a multipolar world? Will they push us into disastrous wars, potentially even a nuclear war? Let's remember JFK's "Peace Speech" from 1963:

If you look at the 4 horsemen of Revelation, I see this

 

The white horse rode out the White House. The red horse rode out of Red Square. The war between them took peace from the earth but neither one won. Death and Famine are sure to follow.

Deputy PM:
 
Test match at 2018 FIFA World Cup stadium in Kaliningrad was success
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 12, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15
 
1191843.jpg
 
 
An inaugural test match at the new football stadium in Kaliningrad, one of Russia's 11 cities selected to host matches of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup, was a total success, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Thursday.
 
The new stadium in Kaliningrad held its first test match on Wednesday between local football club Baltika and guests Krylya Sovetov FC from Samara within the frames of the National Football League tournament. Some 15,000 people attended the match, which ended 1-0 in favor of the hosts.
 
"This was a totally successful test match," Mutko said in an interview with TASS. "There are still questions remaining and we will discuss everything in detail today."
 
"About 200,000 watched this game on social network websites and this is incredible," he said. "I am glad for the residents of Kaliningrad as this city received a luxurious stadium and an opportunity for the future development of this territory."
 
Located in Russia's westernmost enclave the city of Kaliningrad built a completely new stadium for the 2018 World Cup on the Oktyabrsky Island. The stadium's construction met the previously set deadline and the new facility may be one of the cheapest built for the global championship in Russia after FIFA allowed to reduce the seating capacity to 35,000.
 
Russia's old city of Kaliningrad already had one stadium. The 14,660-seat Baltika Stadium was constructed in late 19th century on money donated by philanthropist Walter Simon. At that time the stadium was located within Germany's Konigsberg, which became Russia's Kaliningrad after the World War II.
 
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off in 62 days with the opening match in the Russian capital of Moscow.
 
Russia selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.
 
The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 mentioned above cities across Russia. Two of the stadiums are located in the Russian capital.
 
The new stadium in Kaliningrad will host four group stage matches of the 2018 World Cup: Croatia-Nigeria on June 16, Serbia-Switzerland on June 22, Spain-Morocco on June 25 and England-Belgium on June 28.

UK 'Manipulating' Yulia Skripal as Poisoning Narrative Collapses
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 13, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Skripal investigation is far from being completed; however, it appears that London is wooing Yulia Skripal, an important witness, in an attempt to "confirm" its controversial poisoning story, which is bursting at the seams following a statement by Porton Down specialists, Canadian historian Michael J. Carley told Sputnik.
 
The possibility of military action by the US-led coalition against Damascus over the alleged use of chemical arms in Eastern Ghouta has almost eclipsed the controversial Skripal case; however, the incident, which prompted a wide-scale diplomatic row, leaves more questions than answers.
 
The Porton Down experts' conclusion that the precise origin of the A234 nerve agent, which was supposedly used to poison former spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, could not be attributed to Russia has seemingly undermined Prime Minister Theresa May's narrative and prompted the US Foreign Office to delete its tweet pinning the blame on Moscow.
 
"Has the Tory applecart been upset? Well, it has certainly lost a wheel. Even German politicians, amongst others, have criticized the British rush to indict Russia," Michael Jabara Carley, a professor of history at the Université de Montréal and the author of "Silent Conflict: A Hidden History of Early Soviet-Western Relations," told Sputnik.
 
However, according to the academic, "damage control is underway."
 
"The Times published a story about a covert Russian lab which produced nerve agents and spread like wild fire across the Mainstream Media. The Daily Mirror put out a story about a Russian secret assassin's training manual. What a laugh. Is the Tory government that desperate?  Is the British 'everyman' that gullible? The secret assassin's manual reminds me of the 1924 'Zinoviev Letter', a counterfeit document produced by White Russians in Germany, purporting to demonstrate Soviet interference in British elections and planning for a socialist revolution," the historian recalled.

Yulia Skripal's Discharge From Hospital Fails to Add Clarity to Poisoning Case

Carley said that the hoax emerged during the October 1924 parliamentary elections and the Tories used the letter to attack the credibility of the Labour Party. "It worked like a charm," he noted. "The Soviet authorities claimed that the letter was bogus and they demanded a third party, independent investigation to ascertain the truth, just as the Russian government has done now."
 
However, it took 75 years to determine that "the letter" was in fact a counterfeit, the Canadian academic pointed out. "The Tories are again acting as if they have something to hide.  It is déjà vu," he remarked.
 
It raises the question as to when the truth about the Salisbury poisoning will find its way out. "The chemists at Porton Down took the first step. Will there be others to speak up?" the professor asked rhetorically.

Are British Authorities Deliberately Hiding Yulia Skripal?

Russian Embassy in London Has 'Great Doubts' About Skripal Statement, Demands Reassurance Skripal Not Being Detained
 
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Still, tensions continued to simmer as Viktoria Skripal, Sergei's niece, was denied a British visa and access to her recovering relatives in the UK. Earlier Viktoria cast doubt on London's narrative about the alleged chemical attack against the Skripals.
 
At the same time, the Russian Embassy in the UK has expressed its concerns about the fact that British authorities denied access to the Skripals, especially Yulia Skripal who is recovering fast and has been already discharged from Salisbury hospital. Furthermore, information emerged on April 8 that MI6 is considering a possible resettlement of the Skripals to the US or some other country under new identities in order to "protect them." According to Russian diplomats, it appears that the UK is seeking to hide important witnesses.
 
To "dispel" justified doubts, London's Metropolitan Police released a statement by Yulia Skripal saying that she neither wants to meet with Viktoria, nor plans to contact Russian consuls in the near future.
 
"The Skripals could have been affected by a nerve agent or food poisoning, or by some less potent drug or poison," Carley noted. "It remains to be seen. What raised immediate suspicions about the so-called Salisbury incident was that the Tory government almost from the first day accused the Russian government and President Putin himself of being responsible in one way or another. How could that have been known before any police investigation took place? The British accusations were and remain evidence-free."
 
Regardless of the fact that the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had recently stated that the Skripals were poisoned by A234, the Canadian academic says that some suspicions still remain.
 
"If it was a nerve agent, it should have been instant acting and killed the Skripals almost immediately," he presumed. "Yet both have survived at the time of this writing. Was it some other kind of poison?"
 
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Yulia Skripal Discharged From Hospital, Sergei May Follow Her Soon - Hospital Director
 
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
The professor recalled that at long last "the British sent a sample of the substance to the OPCW which they allege was used to poison the Skripals, but without allowing a sample to be given to Russian authorities, according to agreed upon procedures."
 
"When the Russian representative at the OPCW proposed a resolution to the executive council, that it should, in effect, respect its own statutes, he could not obtain the required vote for approval. The British have succeeded in hijacking the OPCW as a potential tool against the Russian Federation," Carley opined.
 
On the other hand, the British police have seemingly sought to prevent all outside contacts with the Skripals, Carley noted, suggesting that the UK authorities are "grooming" Yulia Skripal in a last ditch effort to save both their narrative, which is falling apart at the seams, and their face.
 
"Are British spooks grooming Yulia Skripal, briefing her to stay on the Tory narrative? Are they playing on her loyalty to her father?" the Canadian professor asked.
 
Judging from the recent statement "attributed to Yulia Skripal," it begins to look that way, he said.
 
"British authorities are acting as though they have something to hide," the historian noted. "Given all this, can anyone with reasonable abilities to think critically believe anything the Tories are saying about the Salisbury affair?"
 
On March 4 the Skripals were found unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury after being reportedly poisoned by the A234 nerve agent. Following the attack, UK Prime Minister Theresa May accused Russia of "attempted murder" of the former spy and his daughter and initiated the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from the UK. More than 20 countries have followed Britain's suit. However, the investigation into the case is still far from being over.

Choice of 'Idiots':
 
Chemist Reveals Fatal Flaw of Novichok Nerve Agent
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 13, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Investigators in protective suits work at the scene in the Maltings shopping centre in Salisbury, England, Tuesday, March 13, 2018
 
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
A man who claims to have been involved in the creation of a deadly toxic agent allegedly used in a recent poisoning plot in the UK attempted to explain why the chemical apparently did not work as intended.
 
Vil Mirzayanov, a Soviet chemist who moved to the United States in the 1990s and who is touted by the Western media as a member of the Novichok chemical weapons program, told media that the substance which was allegedly used in the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in Salisbury has one critical flaw.

___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Commenting on the recent OPCW investigation related to the Skripal affair, Mirzayanov explained that Novichok is apparently very unstable and vulnerable to water. And since the weather in England on March 4, the day Skripals were allegedly poisoned, was humid and foggy, the chemical's potency was greatly reduced.
 
"Only an idiot would've used this substance in humid conditions," he declared.
 
Previously, Moscow repeatedly pointed out that there was no chemical weapon program code named Novichok in the Soviet Union, and that Mirzayanov himself wasn't even involved in chemical weapons development in the first place.

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on March 4 on a bench at a shopping center in Salisbury. London promptly accused Moscow of orchestrating a deadly attack with what UK experts claim was the A234 nerve agent. Moscow has denied having any involvement in the poisoning, pointing to the lack of evidence provided by London to substantiate its accusations.
 
Shortly after the incident, London expelled 23 Russian diplomats, with a number of other European countries and the United States following suit, prompting Moscow to respond in kind.

Independent Swiss Lab Says
 
'BZ Toxin' Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 14, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
Somebody has some explaining to do... or did the Syrian airstrikes just 'distract' the citizenry from the reality surrounding the Skripal poisoning.
 
Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent - produced by Russia - was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the 'facts' as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being 'infected' and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?
 
Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.
 
RT reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW), that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ.
 
The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW.
 
However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added.
 
He went on to say that Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report.
 
On a side note, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.
 
The Russian foreign minister said that London refused to answer dozens of "very specific" questions asked by Moscow about the Salisbury case, as well as to provide any substantial evidence that could shed light on the incident.
 
Instead, the UK accused Russia of failing to answer its own questions, he said, adding that, in fact, London did not ask any questions but wanted Moscow to admit that it was responsible for the delivery of the chemical agent to the UK.
 
But hey, who cares about any of that? Diplomats have been sent home, Putin has been annointed hitler, and besides, what about those missiles in Syria?

From Skripal To Syria:
 
The Empire's "New Realities" Are Reaching The End Of The Road
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 13, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"That's not the way the world really works anymore. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.
 
And while you're studying that reality - judiciously, as you will - we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out.
 
We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
 
- Karl Rove, Deputy Chief of Staff in the Government of George W. Bush.
 
I do wish people would study Rove's words more carefully. Judiciously study them. If they did, then whenever the next alleged atrocity occurs and the United States, together with its coalition of supine vassals, starts yelling and hollering 10 minutes later for action to be taken, on the basis of a test-tube full of washing powder, or pictures of injured women and children in a war zone, and the entire media of dutiful stenographers shrieks that "something must be done", then perhaps we might pause and wonder if we are being played. Instead of falling into an emotional spasm, maybe we would instead reject the deafening drumbeats of war - wars that have a habit of killing immeasurably more women and children than the alleged incidents on which they are based, by the way - and ask ourselves whether "Rove's Law" has come into play.
 
As an aside, the West's interventionist wars remind me of that wonderfully cynical exchange in the film, The Man With Two Brains:
 
Dr. Hfuhruhurr: "The only time we doctors should accept death is when it's caused by our own incompetence!"
 
Dr. Necessiter: "Nonsense! If the murder of twelve innocent people can help save one human life, it will have been worth it!"
 
Here's Dr. Necessiter selling us into war in Iraq: "Nonsense! If it costs us the deaths of 500,000 people to topple the evil dictator Saddam Hussein, it will have been worth it!"
 
Here he is selling us bombs on Libya: "Nonsense! If turning Libya into a failed state, a terrorist's playground, and causing a mass exodus of refugees is the price for getting rid of Gaddafi, it will have been worth it."
 
And here's Dr Necessiter again, this time trying to sell us into bombing Syria: "Nonsense! Risking a catastrophic clash with a country armed with thousands of nuclear weapons is worth it in order to respond to the alleged deaths of less than a hundred people in a totally unproven chemical weapons attack."
 
Behold, the "logic" of the interventionists!
 
But back to Rove. What was he saying? Three things:
 
Number one: We - that is the Globalist Deep State, centred in Washington DC - are sovereign over the entire globe and we will do as we please.
 
Number two: That we don't follow reality, we create it.
 
Number three: That we are prepared to do things that will make your jaws drop, your hair stand on end, and your eyes boggle as you wonder what is going on, and while your jaws, your hair and your eyes are busy doing their thing, we will have moved onto create our next reality.
 
In other words - we are God - and not a kind and merciful God, but a God who lords it over all peoples', nations and tongues, who tells lies, and then tells more lies to cover up those lies and - when you poor saps are trying to work out what it is we're really up to - before you know what has happened, those lies and those lies to cover up lies will have become the new reality. We'll have moved on and the world with it, and the narrative we have created will have been written in the history books, which we ourselves shall write.
 
The cases of Sergei Skripal and the alleged chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta seem somehow to represent the zenith of this ideology.
 
I do not know who poisoned Sergei Skripal or for what reason. It could be that the Russian Government was behind it, although this would mean accepting the highly improbable thesis that they decided to target a has-been MI6 spy, who they released from prison eight years ago, using perhaps the dumbest assassination method in the history of the world - an ineffective, slow-operating, "military-grade" nerve agent, which could be traced back to them, and which they smeared on a door handle in rainy Salisbury -, a week or so before a Presidential election, and less than 100 days before they are due to host the World Cup. In other words, the official narrative does not rest on accepting that the Russian state is the epitome of pure evil; it rests on accepting that it is the epitome of insanity and bumbling incompetence.
 
I do not know what happened in Eastern Ghouta. It could be that the Syrian Government was behind what is alleged to have happened (if it indeed did happen), but this would mean having to accept the thesis that just 24 hours away from completely liberating the last pocket of resistance in Damascus, after the US, the UK and France had all warned that they would attack if chemical weapons were used, just a week or so after the US President, Donald J. Swamp, announced that the US would be pulling out of Syria (which they occupied illegally, by the way), they made the decision to use a weapon that gave them no military advantage whatsoever, but which was practically guaranteed to be used as a pretext for airstrikes against them. In other words, like the Skripal case, the theory does not stand on accepting that the Syrian state is the epitome of pure evil; it stands on accepting that it is the epitome of self-defeating stupidity on an epic scale.
 
But you see what I've done? I've fallen right into Karl Rove's trap, haven't I? I'm asking questions about whether the narratives in these cases stack up. In the Skripal case, I've been judiciously studying reality by asking lots of questions that ought to have occurred to anyone with a keen interest in arriving at the truth (here and here, for instance). I could do the same with the Syrian case, if I had the time.
 
Yet while I'm doing so, the narrative is moving on. I'm falling into exactly the trap that Karl and his disciples have laid. They want two sorts of people: those who just blindly accept that it was the Russians wot did it, or that it was Assad wot did it; and those who spend their time asking questions about the official explanations. The first group call the second group conspiracy theorists and nutters. The second group call the first group dumb sheeple. And the Globalist Deep State laughs and laughs and laughs as the two groups battle it out to make sense of what has happened, leaving it free to march on to create the next reality. Truly I tell you, these Bolsheviks have learnt their Hegelian Dialectics well.
 
Now, this is not to rule out that in the Salisbury and Eastern Ghouta cases the official narratives might - just might - be the correct ones. That both Vladimir Putin and Bashar Assad might be the Laurel and Hardy of Geopolitics. Yet it has to be said that whatever else you think about them, neither of them tends to come across in interviews as being what you might call dumb or inept. Nor do either of them give the impression that they have sudden insane impulses to do things which have absolutely no benefit to them, but which hand their enemies massive PR victories.
 
But this is besides the point. The point is not whether these particular incidents are what the official narrative says they are, or whether they are provocations. It suffices for the "new reality creators" to create their realities on occasion, or perhaps to distort occurrences which they didn't create, and before you know it you have your two groups battling over events which may be real or fake: the conspiracists - who are studying every event to try to work out the details and the inconsistencies - and the sheeple - who believe that their Government is full of good hearted, white hatted chaps and lasses who would never, ever do anything bad - unlike those orcs over in Mordor.
 
Rove and Co have basically created a "reality" where truth is no longer discernible, where assertions of guilt are taken as fact, and where holes in these kinds of incidents only serve to divide the people further, so that the Globalist Deep State can move on to create their next reality.
 
But let's not get gloomy.
 
The good news is that although they clearly think they can get away with it indefinitely, they can't. No kingdom or empire built on a mountain of lies can stand indefinitely. They all fall. And can't you start to sense the signs that the empire's "new realities" - or what are known as lies in laymen's terms - are reaching boiling point? Don't you sense that they have just got too confident and in doing so have begun to get careless? They are making mistakes. And as they do, they are having to resort to bigger and bigger lies to cover up the ones they've already told.
 
Sadly for Rove and Co, but happily for the rest of us, the world doesn't actually work the way they think it does. Reality - I mean real reality, rather than the phoney reality they have created - will catch up sooner or later. I sense that it's on its way even now. And when it finally comes, the whole rotten edifice that these "history's actors" have tried to create will crash and burn. Bringing much rejoicing.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Warns about U.S. Warmongering Propaganda
 
 
 
 
 
April 16, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza stated today that the U.S. government uses warmongering propaganda to justify military interventions in sovereign nations and to appropriate its natural resources.
 
'Imperialism cannot openly confess that it waged wars over oil, gas, trade routes, or to promote its arms industry. That is why, it claims it is to protect the victims, for democracy, for freedom. Perverse propaganda of war!', expressed Arreaza on his Twitter account.
 
The foreign minister condemned the aggression perpetrated last Saturday by the United States, France and the United Kingdom against several targets in Syria, in a unilateral action without the discussion or approval by the bodies empowered to do so in the United Nations.
 
'With the illegal use of violence, the attacking countries openly violate sovereignty, the right to life and all human rights of the Syrian people,' denounced the Venezuelan government in a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry.
 
Venezuela condemned the fact that Syria was targeted by the Western powers despite the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had not yet sent its experts to the field to investigate the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army, a pretext used to launch the attack.

Russian Embassy Notified No New US Sanctions Be Imposed in Near Future
 
- Source
 
 
 
 
 
April 18, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
Russia has expanded its capabilities of launching strategic missile systems from unprecedented distances, Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) chief Gen. Lori Robinson told Congress.
 
"Russia continues to modernize its delivery systems capable of launching from distances not previously seen," Robinson told a hearing of the US House of Representatives Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces on Tuesday.
 
Undersecretary of Defense for Policy John Rood told US policymakers at the same hearing that they take very seriously the capability of Russia and China's hypersonic weapons research and development.
 
"We are very seriously concerned about the rate of development we see [in hypersonics] in China and also in Russia," he said.
 
Also on Tuesday, US Strategic Command (STRATCOM) chief Gen. John Hyten told the Senate Armed Services Committee that there was nothing in the US arsenal that could stop Russia's new hypersonic weapons.
 
However, Robinson said that North Korea today posed the most immediate threat to the United States.
 
"North Korea remains the most immediate threat to our homeland," Robinson told a hearing of the US House of Representatives Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces on Tuesday.
 
Robinson added she remained confident that the already-deployed force of US Ground-Based Mid-course Interceptors mainly deployed at Fort Greely, in the US state of Alaska was sufficient to defend the United States against any long-range missile threat from North Korea.
 
"I'm confident the mid-course [interceptors] can defeat that threat today," she added.

"ROBINSON ADDED SHE REMAINED CONFIDENT THAT THE ALREADY-DEPLOYED FORCE OF US GROUND-BASED MID-COURSE INTERCEPTORS MAINLY DEPLOYED AT FORT GREELY, IN THE US STATE OF ALASKA, WAS SUFFICIENT TO DEFEND THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ANY LONG-RANGE MISSILE THREAT FROM NORTH KOREA."
 
NOT IF NORTH KOREA RECEIVES A FREE GIFT OF A RUSSIAN S-500 MISSILE, WHICH TRAVELS AT A SPEED OF AT LEAST MACH 5.
DOES THERESA MAY UNDERSTAND THAT HER STUPID NOVICHOK PROPAGANDA COULD LEAD TO THE USA BEING FINISH IN THE SPACE OF TWO HOURS?

London systematically destroying evidence in Skripal case
 
- Russia's UN envoy
 
 
 
 
 
April 19, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
The UK continues to conceal and destroy evidence relating to the Salisbury incident and have crossed all boundaries in their rhetoric by alleging President Putin's personal involvement, Russia's UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia has said.
 
"The British authorities are engaged in the systematic destruction of evidence," Nebenzia told the United Nations Security Council, which held a session, called by UK on Wednesday, to discuss the OPCW report and other developments in the Skripal case.
 
"Skripal's pets were killed. No samples were obviously taken. The places attended by the Skripals - a bar, a restaurant, a bench, park ground, etc - are all being cleared," the diplomat said, pointing out that, despite some loud statements about the alleged contamination of the area, "people continue to live in Salisbury as if nothing happened."
 
The envoy also reminded the council members that Sergei and Yulia Skripal, who, according to London, are now both recovering from the poisoning by a deadly military grade nerve agent A-234 ('Novichok'), are kept hidden from the public eye ever since the March 4 incident. In the meantime, London categorically refuses to provide Russia any access to the investigation, and so far has left 45 out of 47 questions addressed to British authorities about the case unanswered.
 
In a summary of its report, the OPCW didn't not independently identify the nerve agent used in the Salisbury case nor its origin, but instead only confirmed "the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury."
 
The conclusions made by OPCW were based on samples provided by the UK investigators and do not prove London's claim of Russia's involvement in the poisoning, Nebenzia noted. "The main thing that the report lacks, and what the British side was so eager to see, is the conclusion that the substance used in Salisbury was produced in Russia," he said.
 
The UK Ambassador to the United Nations, Karen Pierce, however, downplayed the lack of technical evidence and urged the council members to look at "the wider picture which has led the United Kingdom to assess that there's no plausible alternative explanation than Russian State responsibility for what happened in Salisbury."
 
Extensively using the 'highly likely' argument, the UK envoy once again claimed in her address to the UNSC that only Russia had the "technical means, operational experience and the motive to target the Skripals." At one point she even claimed that "President Putin himself was closely involved in the Russian chemical weapons programme."
 
"London apparently thinks the Russian President has a hobby of running chemical weapons programs in his free time. I don't know whether you appreciate that you've crossed all possible boundaries," Nebenzia replied.

Russia's OPCW envoy exposes 'eight UK lies' in Skripal case
 
 
 
 
 
 
April 19, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
 
The UK's narrative in the Skripal case is a "story woven with lies," with London continuously trying to "deceive" the international community, Russia's OPCW envoy said, highlighting eight examples of such misinformation.
 
"We've tried to show that everything our British colleagues produce is a story woven with lies," Russia's permanent representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Aleksandr Shulgin told reporters on Wednesday, following the organization's meeting on the Skripal case.
 
"And, unlike the British, who aren't used to taking responsibility for their words and unfounded accusations, we showed specific facts why we believe our British partners, to put it mildly, are 'deceiving' everyone." The official provided eight examples of UK-pushed misinformation, surrounding the March 4 events, when the former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in the town of Salisbury
 
#1. Russia refuses to answer UK 'questions'
 
"In reality, they've asked us only two 'questions'… And both were worded in such way that the existence of an undocumented arsenal of chemical weaponry at Russia's disposal was presented as an established fact, beyond any doubt."
 
It was effectively an ultimatum, pressing Moscow to either confess that it "attacked the UK with chemical weapons," or to admit that it had "lost control over the chemical warfare arsenal."
 
Moscow answered both of these 'questions' immediately, stating that it had nothing to do with the Salisbury incident. Apart from that, the official emphasized, it is an established fact that Russia destroyed all its chemical weaponry stockpile ahead of schedule last year.
 
#2. UK abides by Chemical Weapons Convention rulebook
 
The OPCW procedures clearly state that if one member state has issues with another, it should send an official request, and thus the other party would be obliged to respond within 10 days, Shulgin said. However, instead, the UK allegedly "instigated by their colleagues from across the pond," disregarded the established mechanism and came up with a dubious "independent verification" scheme, which violates those very OPCW rules.
 
#3. Russia refuses to cooperate
 
While the UK and a number of its allies accuse Russia of "refusing to cooperate to establish the truth," the situation is exactly the opposite, Shulgin insists. Moscow is interested in a thorough investigation of the incident - especially since the victims are Russian citizens. Moscow repeatedly insisted on a joint probe and urged London to release data on the Skripal case, but all efforts were in vain. Many requests went unanswered by the UK, while others received only a formal reply.
 
#4. Russia invents versions to distract attention
 
Despite numerous speculations and allegations by questionable sources, cited by the UK's own domestic media, it was Moscow that was eventually accused of coming up with some "30 versions" of the Salisbury events, allegedly to "disrupt the investigation," Shulgin said.
 
"In reality, the picture is different. In fact, it's the British tabloids, the so-called independent media, which is multiplying those versions," the official stated, recalling some of the narratives, most of which entirely contradict each other.

Chemical Agent in Skripal Case Produced in Western Labs,
 
Expert Says
 
 
 
 
 
April 19, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
The chemical substance in the case of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal poisoning in the UK city of Salisbury with great certainty has been produced in one of western laboratories, chemical weapons expert said.
 
The head of Chemical and Biological Weapon Restrictive Conventions Analytical Research Center under the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Viktor Kholstov said that the chemical agent in Skripal's poisoning case has been produced in western laboratories.
 
  "The issue of 'Novichoks' has gained widespread in a considerable number of western laboratories. It is fair to say that today there are at least 20 of such laboratories which undertake work related to 'Novichoks'," expert said. "It can be said with great certainty that the manufacture is somewhere at those laboratories," he said in an intervew with the Russian Investigative Committee.

Refusal to Cooperate With Russia Would Confirm Skripal Incident Being Western Provocation - Envoy
___________________________________________________________________________________
 
Former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on March 4 at a shopping center in the UK city of Salisbury. UK Government was quick to accuse Moscow for being behind the alleged "attack". Russian government refuted all allegations, pointing at the lack of evidence to support such claims and demanded access to the case's materials, including samples of the nerve agent, which UK believes to be the substance from the so-called "Novichok" group, more commonly known as A-234.
 
Viktor Kholstov noted that all Russian chemical weapons stockpiles had been destroyed in full capacity, as well as every production facility had been closed down under the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction which had entered into force in 1997.
