NIMMO: CUI BONO, ISRAEL, AND THE ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL

If we consult a map, we discover Israel is situated to the northwest of Saudi Arabia. Iran is in the east and Iraq to the north. Because cruise missiles and drones have the capability of changing direction, we do not have a good idea where the missiles came from and the party responsible for launching them.

For the US, this is not a problem. It is now habituated to telling lies, releasing misinformation, and disseminating propaganda associated with false flag attacks. Much of what it reports is believed without question by millions of Americans. The state describes this mass credulity and inability to question authority as “patriotism.”

Attacks On Major Saudi Oil Installations Show Urgent Need For Peace With Yemen

The Houthi armed forces spokesman claimed responsibility for today's attack:

This operation is one of the largest operations carried out by our forces in the depth of Saudi Arabia and came after a accurate intelligence operation and advance monitoring and cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.
The claim of cooperation by people in Saudi Arabia will make the Saudi rulers even more paranoid than they usually are. It may well be that the drones were launched from inside Saudi Arabia and that their launch point was far nearer to the target than is publicly assumed.

So far, Beto has tried being folksy, posting videos of him at the dentist, getting his hair cut, flipping burgers, and changing a tire. That hasn’t been successful in getting his polling numbers out of the low single digits. -- Now he’s selling profanity and trying to prove he’s the most anti-gun candidate in the field in trying to lure support from Democrats in his Quixotic quest to be President.

President Donald Trump orders two former White House aides to defy subpoenas and not testify at House hearing

The White House has instructed former aides Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter to not appear at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

They say to two ex-aides are 'absolutely immune' from testifying at what the panel is calling its first impeachment hearing.

Lawyers for both men said they would follow the orders, which President Trump directed.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who never worked for the White House, is expected to attend the hearing as its sole witness.

How were low-tech drones able to pierce Saudi Arabian security? Defence system called into question despite country spending $65bn on arms last year including US radar and Patriot missiles - as mocking Putin says they should have bought Russian

How were low-tech drones able to pierce Saudi Arabian security? Defence system called into question despite country spending $65bn on arms last year including US radar and Patriot missiles - as mocking Putin says they should have bought Russian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr.President; a word, please: can you tell both the American people, and the Saudi people, specifically why these US systems, were absolutely impotent, to thwart this attack?!?

This result of this "epic fail" by American weapons makers, is one which is going to have governments scrambling to buy from the Russians, because their s-300 and S-400 systems, actually do what the manual says they will do.

The only possible thing I can think of, as to why these systems didn't work, is that the US technicians who installed them, were ordered to install them so improperly, to insure that they wouldn't work, so that any attack against these facilities would be the springboard for military action against Iran.

Mr. President, in this hideous rush to war against Iran, I would caution utter restrain, and incredible forensic work by both the US military and civilian specialists; a fact-centric, iron-clad case is necessary, because the American people will not tolerate yet another failed military misadventure for control over more oil.

HomeWorld NewsPutin to Saudi Arabia: Our air defenses can protect you, like they do Turkey and Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin has suggested Saudi Arabia should buy Russian air defense systems to protect its oil facilities from drone attacks, pointing to Iran and Turkey, who operate S-300 and S-400 missiles, respectively.

“Saudi Arabia needs to make a smart decision, as Iran did by buying our S-300, and as Mr. Erdogan did by deciding to buy the most advanced S-400 Triumph air defense systems from Russia,” Putin told reporters in Ankara on Monday. “These kinds of systems are capable of defending any kind of infrastructure in Saudi Arabia from any kind of attack.”

Putin was answering a question about the recent drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which Washington has blamed on Iran, though Yemen’s Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in 2015 and has fought the Houthis there since.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin has got to be laughing himself to sleep these days; not only has he one-upped Trump, in terms of his engineers producing weaponry far superior than that which the US works to sell, but also, in reaching out to disaffected former "friends" of the US, against which this country has turned, he is creating a power and economic base, such as the world has never seen.

"DRONE ATTACK" ON SAUDI OIL - WHO BENEFITS?Published: September 16, 2019Share | Print ThisSOURCE: TONY CARTALUCCI

Deliberately missing from the BBC's history lesson are several key facts, leaving readers to draw conclusions that conveniently propel the West's agenda versus Iran forward.

The US and Saudi Arabia vs. MENA

The war in Yemen was a result of US-backed regime change operations aimed at Yemen - along with Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Syria, and Egypt - starting in 2011.

Major hostilities began when the client regime installed by the US was ousted from power in 2015. Since then, the US and its Saudi allies have brutalized and ravaged Yemen triggering one of the worst humanitarian crises of the 21st century.

The UN's own news service in an article titled, "Humanitarian crisis in Yemen remains the worst in the world, warns UN," would admit:

US SUPPORTED SYRIA "REBELS" FIRE LIVE ROUNDS AT SYRIAN FAMILIES IN RUKBAN CONCENTRATION CAMP - GLOBAL RESEARCH

SOURCE: GLOBAL RESEARCH

Syrian families held captive by Trump Regime Forces and their ISIS affiliates of Maghaweer Thawra terrorists at al-Rukban Concentration Camp went out of their tents in the high heat of the desert to protest for food the day before yesterday, 11th of September, they were faced with live bullets by the US occupation forces.

Russian Coordination Center called on the US occupation forces in Rukban Concentration Camp to exert pressure on US-sponsored Maghaweer Thawra terrorists to stop their terrorist acts against the displaced Syrians held in the camp, these terrorist acts have exacerbated the already dire humanitarian situation of the families there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: our "allies", the ISIS affiliates of Maghaweer Thawra terrorists at al-Rukban Concentration Camp, are committing war crimes, in our name, with our tax dollars, and on your watch.

So the American people are asking: just what, please, do you intend to do about it?!?

Because, sir, this has to stop, and right the heck now: Mr. President, when, please, did we stop being a nation of laws, and become the nation of loot, pillage, and destroy, and expect no blowback?!?

I remember when I was a kid, absorbing all the propaganda about how great this Country was, I never, in my wildest imagination thought, that I would become a citizen of a country supporting war crimes; and yet, at 70, this is what the Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika has become; a nation which tolerates, and even participates, in war crimes, done in its name.

And please don't get me started US-enabled, Saudi war crimes in Yemen; we will be here all week.

Same Gov’t That’s Now Banning Flavored E-Cigs, Approved Candy-Flavored Amphetamines for Kids

By Matt Agorist

Last week, the Trump administration announced a sweeping ban of flavored e-cigarettes under the ostensible caring notion of stopping children from vaping.

Childhood smoking is certainly a concern, but the idea of a government ban on flavored cigarettes is outright laughable considering the things this government has already approved for children to put in their bodies. What’s more, banning these e-cigarettes will be a huge boon to the regular cigarette industry which kills hundreds of thousands every year...

According to reports, six deaths have been attributed to vaping. Six deaths. And the direct attribution to vaping is still unclear. Meanwhile, 1,500 people die every single day in America from cigarette smoking related illness and this is just fine and dandy...

US officials have told FOX that the attacks originated from Iranian soil, which is the first time such a direct charge has been issued since the early Saturday morning crisis.

Deception by the government and media are ever present. Propaganda and lies are constant. Disinformation is the rule, and honesty is almost non-existent.

Most are conditioned to not question authority, to accept what they are told, and to go with the herd, but most are always wrong.

Saudi oil attacks: US says intelligence shows Iran involved

The United States has issued satellite images and cited intelligence to back its allegation Iran was behind attacks on major Saudi oil facilities.

Iran denies involvement in Saturday's air attacks, which were claimed by Iran-aligned Houthi rebels in Yemen.

But unnamed US officials speaking to US and international media say the direction and extent of the attacks cast doubt on Houthi involvement.

The incident has cut global oil supplies by 5% and prices have soared.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where, please, is the hard evidence Americans can actually trust, rather the bits and pieces of cherry picked "intelligence and accusations" against Iran, which are the only things the US government has been able to produce?!?

And please remember; this is precisely the same Federal Government which told you that Iraq's Saddam Hussein "had weapons of mass destruction", and that Syria's Bashar al Assad "was using chemical weapons against his own people".

They lied to pursue various geopolitical/financial objectives; with Iran one of the premier oil producers in the Middle East, how can we trust that they are not lying again?!?

U.S. OFFICIALS BUILDING A CASE AGAINST IRAN AFTER MASSIVE ATTACK ON SAUDI

Jerusalem Post Middle East

Attack on Saudi was large and sophisticated, satellite images show, and involved numerous drones.

Satellite images released by US officials on Sunday showed the extent of damage on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq oil processing facility and at Khurais oil field. The images show 17 impact points on key petroleum infrastructure, including four hits on liquefied natural gas storage tanks.

The images reveal extreme precision by the drones or cruise missiles which struck the oil facilities. ABC News reported on Monday that officials have ascertained that a dozen cruise missiles and 20 drones were fired in the attack. This degree of sophistication is beyond the ability of Yemen’s Houthi rebels, notwithstanding their claim of responsibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it interesting - and more than slightly ironic - that it is the US government "building a case" against Iran, and not the Saudi government.

One has to wonder if both the Saudi Government in Riyadh, and Crown Prince Bin Salman, have been given a deadline before which they must respond to Trump's ultimatum regarding identifying Tehran as the culprit here.

And as the Second Cynic in Chief of this website (my Sweetheart being the First Cynic in Chief),I have to wonder if such a deadline... might well be coordinated to dovetail, with the moment Israeli polls are open, and in which Prime Minister Netanyahu is fighting for his political life.

Trump says 'not fair' that U.S. can't sell F-35s to Turkey

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday it is “not fair” to either Turkey or the United States that Washington cannot sell Ankara billions of dollars worth of F-35 fighter jets after it bought a Russian air defense system.

Turkey started taking delivery of Russia’s S-400 air defense system last week in defiance of U.S. warnings that doing so would mean the Pentagon would kick it out of the F-35 stealth fighter program and that it could be subject to sanctions.

Washington’s concern is that deploying the S-400 with the F-35 would allow Russia to gain too much inside information of the stealth system.

Buying military equipment from Russia also leaves the NATO member liable to U.S. sanctions retribution under a 2017 law known as the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, or CAATSA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please, stop with the bloody whining, already!!

And talk to your good buds at the major defense departments companies who love your administration, in light of the reality that you have so vigorously taken up the mantle of "Merchant of Death in Chief" in their behalf, and tell them to fix the problems, which make US weaponry less competitive than that of Russia and China, OR ELSE!!!

Of course, Mr. President, you have utterly no desire to do this, nor will you, against your campaign contributors, who most likely will arrange for your 2020 victory as a "slam dunk".

So, the problems with American weapons will never, really get fixed; and it will be our kids in uniform who may well suffer and die because of this.

Were I the President, sir, I would never want this on my conscience or soul, that I had done nothing to protect American military from weaponry which should have been fixed, but was not; and yet, these people are the most likely going to be victims of flawed US weaponry.

Yemen's military warns foreigners to leave Saudi oil plants

Yemen's military has warned foreigners in Saudi Arabia to leave Aramco's oil processing plants, saying they are still a target and can be attacked "at any moment."

The warning came after Houthis and their allies in the Yemeni army deployed as many as 10 drones to bomb Abqaiq and Khurais oil facilities run by the Saudi state-owned oil company before dawn Saturday.

Spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces, General Yahya Sare'a, said in a tweet Monday that the attacks in the kingdom's eastern region had been carried out by drones with normal and jet engines.

He said Saudi Arabia should stop its "aggression and blockade on Yemen," or see the Yemeni army hit the kingdom "anywhere and anytime" it chooses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though the Butcher of Yemen I(Prince Bin Salman) has made the statement publicly, that the Saudis can handle these attacks on their own MBS tells Trump Saudi 'willing and able' to respond to attacks, this statement by Houthi rebels, telling foreign workers to get out of Saudi Arabia ASAP, most probably means that another attack is imminent.

Should such a scenario happen, the Israeli government will be high fiving themselves, big-time; because now, there is a proxy army to take down Iran, and not a single drop of blood of Israeli blood will be shed.

Should it happen, I would strongly suggest, that the US will be joining forces with Saudi Arabia, and start bombing Iran, with a potential decap strike against Tehran.

I would, however, suggest to the Adult in the Room in the Bowels of Power, in Saudi Arabia; Israel; or the US, that such a move would trigger Russia to enter the fray on Iran's side, and that... would completely change the math of any potential outcome.

Drone Attack on Saudi Oil Field Seen as ‘Pearl Harbor’ Moment

For many of the national security teams that monitor threats on the U.S., the apparent drone strike Saturday on the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities was the realization of their worst fears.

Based on early reports, multiple relatively inexpensive drone devices were able to pierce Saudi defenses in a way that a traditional air force could not: flying long distances to drop potent bombs that apparently set vast portions of the Saudi petroleum infrastructure ablaze.

The attack, for which Houthi rebels battling Saudi Arabia in Yemen took credit, underscored the fears raised by U.S. security officials and experts in terrorism about the rapid evolution of technologies allowing expanded unmanned flight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the author of this article, I would strongly and politely like to suggest that these actions, if in fact taken by the Houthis, are not Saudi Arabia "Pearl Harbor Moment."

It is, rather, retaliation for the US aided and abetted Saudi war against Yemen, which has assassinated thousands of Yemeni children, women, and the medically fragile elderly; I am not justifying the violence here; I am simply pointing out how this may well have been the real motivation for the attack, if, as has been stated, Houthi rebels actually pulled this off.

And if the US and Saudi intelligence infrastructure were so myopic, that the heads of these agencies, never thought that the Houthis would ever retaliate in this way, they need to be handed their collective hats.

Iran To Release UK-Flagged Tanker As Rick Perry "Wholeheartedly Condemns" Attack On Saudi Arabia

Washington has blamed Iran for this weekend's attack on Saudi Arabia's oil production facilities, which are expected to cut Saudi oil output in half until repairs can be completed. The attack was purportedly carried out by Yemen's Houthi rebels, who have a long history of launching attacks on Saudi soil. But President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have placed blame for the attacks squarely on the Iranians. As we noted over the weekend, the timing of the attack is suspicious, coming as the kingdom renews its push to float 5% of Aramco in what's expected to be the largest-ever IPO. The offering would benefit from higher oil prices. Many have questioned why Saudi Arabia's missile defense capabilities failed to stop the attack.

Iran has denied any responsibility for the attack.

This weekend's attack wiped out 5% of the world's oil supplies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I simply have to ask; would Iranian leadership do something so incredibly stupid that it could cause an outcry which could actually lead to a shooting war here?!?

The short answer is, they would not; these attacks are being "stage managed", very carefully, to give the "illusion" that the attacks were actual provocations by the Iranian against Saudi Arabia, and that there is no other explanation.

Folks, I hate to break it to you; but this week is shaping up as a lousy one for peace, and honorable, reasonable negotiations, and reduced tensions in both the Middle East and the world.

Iran War Imminent? Trump Says US "Locked And Loaded" To Respond To Saudi Attack

Just as the price of oil was settling down from its record surge, it spiked once again, following a tweet by president Trump which has made war with Iran virtually inevitable.

Just before 7pm, Trump tweeted that "Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!"

Setting aside the implicit admission that US foreign policy in the middle-east is now inexplicably run by Saudi Arabia, what is far more troubling is Trump's statement that the US military is "locked and loaded", and set to attack the country which instigated the attack on Saudi facilities, which according to Mike Pompeo was not Yemen, and its Houthi rebels, but rather Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me the most greatly, is the rapidity with which this scenario is being shoved down the world's collective gullet, even though Houthi spokespeople have claimed claim responsibility for these strikes.

Various elements in the bowels of power, both in Tel Aviv, and the US, wants to see this happen, and quickly, perhaps as a misdirection for Israeli voters when they go to the polls on the 17th.

It is absolutely not the Iranians who benefit from these charges; it is absolutely not the Saudi monarchy, or people, who benefit from these acts.

But the one country whose leadership does benefit,and that... is Israel's current leadership.

With its national elections coming up tomorrow, and Benjamin Netanyahu struggling to insure that the Israeli public will vote him in again, and that is Benjamin Netanyahu, showing how "butch" he is, by demanding that the US go to war with Iran, and immediately.

Would the IDF and Mossad conjure a "false flag" attack against Saudi Arabia's largest petroleum refining plants, ahead of their election, to make Netanyahu "look more appealing" to his voters, because he got the US to rain literal fire and brimstone on Iran?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer is, HELL, yes.

I highly suspect that the Butcher of Yemen is feeling at least some heat, as Trump challenges him to make a statement that Saudi Arabia were attacked by Iran, and quickly, even though he may, through his intelligence resources, well know better.

Surrounding their camp was a force of U.S. troops charged with the responsibility of arresting Big Foot and disarming his warriors. The scene was tense. Trouble had been brewing for months.

Tell him he need have no fear in giving up his arms, as I wish to treat him kindly.' Big Foot replied, 'They have no guns, except such as you have found.' Forsyth declared, 'You are lying to me in return for my kindness.'

Washington had a personal interest in this. His slave produced hooch couldn't compete against the corn liqour made up in the Mountains. The battle still goes on today.

It was the late 18th century and the national government was cash-strapped. In order to raise money, Congress passed a 25% excise (sales) tax on liquor. Anger about the tax was widespread along the frontier from Pennsylvania to Georgia. Many Americans along the frontier resented the tax from a distant legislature. There were outbreaks of opposition. In rural areas where no one was willing to serve as tax collector, the taxes went unpaid.

Attack on Saudi oil field a game-changer in Gulf confrontation Analysis by Tim Lister, CNN Updated 9:29 AM ET, Sun September 15, 2019 Reporter: 'Startlingly dangerous moment' in Middle East condor diverted flight map Spilled coffee diverted transatlanti

It is a game changer all right. A couple more strikes like this and it will be the end of the House of Saud!

(CNN)The attack on the world's largest oil processing plant early Saturday morning is a dramatic escalation in the confrontation between Iran and Saudi Arabia -- even if the Iranians didn't fire the drones or missiles responsible.

Several projectiles struck the Abiqaiq plant, starting a series of fires that quickly took out nearly half Saudi's oil production -- 5% of the global daily output -- and sparking fears about the security of the world's oil supplies.
It's unclear when Abiqaiq, which is operated by Saudi giant Aramco, will be fully operational again.

This comes as mad scientists in the U.S. are finding they are getting bitten back by messing with nature after running their own program to genetically modify mosquitoes.

The experiment involved a company called Oxitec which took male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and genetically engineered them to have a dominant lethal gene. The idea was first proposed in 2016, according to an article by Science Magazine that discussed the plans to release the GM insects...

mran Khan Doesn't Rule Out Pakistan's Possible War With India Going Nuclear

When asked if Pakistan would hit India with nuclear weapons in case of a large-scale conflict, Khan first ruled out his country initiating the attack.

“Pakistan would never start a war, and I am clear: I am a pacifist. I am anti-war,” he said.

However, Khan added that when two nuclear-armed states “fight a conventional war, there is every possibility that it is going to end up in a nuclear war.”

“If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice: either you surrender or you fight ‘til death for your freedom – I know Pakistanis will fight to death for their freedom,” said Pakistan’s PM.

Khan has repeatedly warned in recent weeks that foreign powers, along with the UN, need to intervene in the standoff between India and Pakistan over disputed Kashmir.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that no unhinged Pakistani group, or movement, is about to "take care of direct military action" against india, in behalf of Pakistan; I very much respect Khan's performance so far as Pakistan's President, but right now, he needs to reach out to the most disaffected, and despairing of his own people, and those in Kashmir, by preaching hope, moderation, and ultimately, a political solution here.

Breaking: US is Ready to Tap Strategic Petroleum Reserve Amid Attacks on Saudi Oil Facilities

Two key oil processing plants in Saudi Arabia were attacked by drones on Saturday causing the interruption of about half of the company's total daily oil output. The attacks were claimed by the Houthi movement of Yemen.

The United States is ready to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve if necessary in order to rebalance the global energy supply in the wake of the drone attacks on major Saudi oil facilities, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday."

Conway hinted at the possibility of a meeting between President Donald Trump and the Iranian leadership on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York. But she added that the chances of such a meeting happening are now in doubt due to the drone attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ever fact-free, unhinged, surveilled State of America is probably happy that these attacks happened, because it gives President Trump the justification for not meeting the Iranian leadership at the UN general assembly.

Ready For War': IRGC General Says US Bases, Carriers Close to Iran Are Within Range of Its Missiles

The statement comes as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday blamed Iran for recent drone attacks on Saudi Aramco's oil fields, urging the international community "to publicly and unequivocally condemn Iran’s attacks".

Tehran has always been prepared for a full-fledged war, Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps Aerospace Force Chief Amirali Hajizadeh said in a statement on Sunday, just a day after two drone attacks on oilfields in Saudi Arabia, which were claimed by Houthis and blamed by the US and Saudi Arabia on Tehran.

“Everybody should know that all American bases and their aircraft carriers, at a distance of up to 2,000 kilometres around Iran, are within the range of our missiles,” Hajizadeh said.

According to Hajizadeh, the Iranian military are ready to target two US bases and one carrier in the event of an armed conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh); Admiral Hajizadeh, we understand this.

But what I don't get is, if in fact these are the preparations being made ready for a fight against the US military, why are you broadcasting them to the entire world?!? It would seem to me that, rather than being a declaration for your coming actions, this information is deliberate disinformation, to prevent the US (and possibly Israel) from knowing what your true intentions are here.

I have to tell you, Admiral Hajizadeh, there are many in this country who detest the US's proclivity toward war, rather than making the choice for hard-one negotiations to bring peace; of course, we are no more in control of the institutions of power in our government... than are the Iranian people with theirs.

Israeli Attacks On Syria Halted After Russia Threatened To Shoot Down Jets

According to reports in both Israeli and Arabic regional media, Israel this past week was preparing to expand major airstrikes against "Iran-backed" targets in Syria, but Moscow imposed its red line. The Independent has published a story describing that Russia's military in Syria threatened to shoot down any invading Israeli warplanes using fighter jets or their S-400 system.

The Jerusalem Post, citing sources in the UK Independent (Arabia), writes just after the latest meeting in Sochi between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only time will tell here; but now we know that there is someone who has "the titanium attributes" and that would be the Russian President Vlad (the Impaler) Putin, to confront Israel, and let it know it cannot assassinate people wherever, and whenever, they want to.

I hope and pray Putin stays strong on this issue.

Nuclear War With Russia "Winnable" Said Trump's Incoming National Security Advisor

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

Questioning “mutual assured destruction,” Charles Kupperman called nuclear conflict “in large part a physics problem.”

He made those statements in the 1980s. I do not know his views today, but let's review what he said then.

President Donald Trump’s acting national security adviser, former Reagan administration official Charles Kupperman, made an extraordinary and controversial claim in the early 1980s: nuclear conflict with the USSR was winnable and that “nuclear war is a destructive thing but still in large part a physics problem.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but is being barking-dog mad, science-challenged, and pig-headedly wrong, now three prerequisites for attaining the US's office of National Security Advisor?

And if one will note, his school background Bio: Charles Kupperman shows absolutely no studies in nuclear physics, or nuclear energy. He has been, in previous administrations, in various positions where he should have had the scientific knowledge necessary to really handle the positions to which he was assigned, which included the following: 'Kupperman was a foreign policy adviser to Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign.[7] After Reagan was elected, Kupperman joined the Reagan administration. He was Executive Assistant to the Acting Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and then the Executive Director of the General Advisory Committee on Arms Control[8] of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, before becoming the Executive Assistant to the Director of the Office of Personnel Management.[6] In July 1986 he became Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the Office of Administration.[4]

Kupperman worked at two defense contractors, Lockheed Martin and Boeing; he was the vice president for business development for missile defense systems for Boeing and the vice president of Washington Space Operations for Lockheed Martin Corporation.'

And I have to ask, as a person very concerned about the trajectory of US foreign policy, why is it that, when someone leaves the administration in a huff, they tend to get replaced by an individual who is even more to the right of Attila the Hun regarding Russia,China,and Iran than was their predecessor?!?

So Mr. President, I would like to politely suggest that the US needs a Director for a US Department of Science, to advise your Advisors,particularly Kupperman.

I do not know what the brilliant American scientist Michio Kaku is doing right now; Bio: Michio Kaku
but this guy is absolutely solid on the science of nuclear war, and would be a great person to have in your cabinet.

And another person with whom you want Kupperman to consult, is the highly respected physician, Dr. Helen Caldicott. Bio: Dr. Helen Caldicott

Mr. President, please: these are two people who will not tell you "Yes, Mr. President", if both their logic and scientific grounding, tells them that a particular move by this country, would put it on dangerous ground.

And Mr. President, if there was ever a time during your first Administration when you desperately needed people like Kaku and Caldicott, who are invested in telling you the truth, the time for such people to be included, and listened to, is right the hell now, President Trump.

You are welcome!

Pompeo accuses Iran of 'unprecedented attack' after drones hit Saudi oil facilities

"Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while [President Hassan] Rouhani and [Foreign Minister Mohammad] Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy," Pompeo tweeted, referring to the nation's president and foreign affairs minister. " ... There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen."

Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack hours before Pompeo's tweet. The world’s largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field were impacted, sparking huge fires at a vulnerable chokepoint for global energy supplies.

ZANTAC HAS LOW LEVELS OF A CANCER-CAUSING CHEMICAL, THE F.D.A. SAYS

SOURCE: NYTIMES.COM

The Food and Drug Administration said on Friday that it had detected low levels of a cancer-causing contaminant in samples of heartburn medicines containing the drug commonly known as Zantac.

It was advising patients who take over-the-counter versions to consider switching to a different medication.

But no recalls have been initiated, and the agency said patients who take prescription versions of the drug, known as ranitidine, should consult with their doctors before stopping. The European Medicines Agency is also looking into the issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, just great!

And one has to wonder just how long the FDA knew about this, before they created this announcement?!? (and dumped on a Friday, of course, when fewer people were likely to read it)

This is yet one more example of the FDA allowing private profits to trump public health responsibility.

One has to wonder just how many members of the FDA have stocks in the firm that produces Zantac (it's Sanofi Consumer Healthcare, making $41.8 billion annually BTW).

Information like this is power for the end consumer; you have to check the risk/benefit ratio of any medication you may be taking, or have been subscribed.

IN HIS FINAL DAYS, A VIETNAM VET AT A VA FACILITY WAS TWICE FOUND COVERED IN ANTS, DAUGHTER SAYS

SOURCE: CNN.COM
(CNN)An Air Force veteran who served in Vietnam and was living his final days at a US Department of Veterans Affairs assisted-living facility was twice found covered in ants and photos show scores of bites on his body, his daughter said Thursday.

Laquana Ross said her father, Joel Marrable, died Saturday at the Eagles' Nest Community Living Center in the Atlanta VA Medical Center.
Ross said she is not upset with the VA over the ants, but wants her father's story to prompt change.

"Maybe this can move the needle and improve the process," she said. "The VA is busy. They have a lot of patients and huge needs they have to address."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As much as I abhor war, as a methodology for the US getting what it wants from other countries, not one more of our Veterans should ever have to put up with this lack of basic medical care, ever!!!

A society can definitely be judged by how well it treats its most fragile members, and that includes many of our medically fragile elderly Vets; and right now, this country is failing these people in an extreme and horrific way, as evidenced by this case.

NO human being is ever expendable, and all, particularly when they near their journey's end, should be treated with grace, common sense medical care, and compassion.

Our Vets are NOT "disposable", thank you very much!!!!

2ND CIRCUIT RULES FOX NEWS MUST FACE SUIT BROUGHT BY SETH RICH'S FAMILY

SOURCE: COURTHOUSENEWS.COM

The Second Circuit Friday revived an infliction of emotional distress suit against Fox News brought by the traumatized parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich over the cable network’s retracted coverage of a WikiLeaks conspiracy theory.

Rich’s parents, Joel and Mary Rich, who live in Omaha, Nebraska, claimed they suffered symptoms of post?traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder after Fox News pushed a discredited right-wing conspiracy theory that their son was involved in the leak of thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, and was killed because of it.

Rich was shot twice in the back a block from his apartment in W

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I found a very interesting treatment of a possibility that Rich was assassinated at RBN, the radio network with which Mike is affiliated as a host; here's the link.

This Is Why Seth Rich Was Killed And What He Provided To WikiLeaks

The article goes on to state:This explains a lot of things about “the election”, both the DNC primary, and in the Presidential election. Though Trump won the required number of electoral votes, I was very surprised that he “fell short” of HRC in the popular vote. Somehow I sensed that many votes were somehow “confiscated” from him. Jim Stone explains how this likely happened.

As David Wilcock pointed out in the prior post, “The Seth Rich story is very big, and could be the critical element that breaks this all wide open — as I discussed in my Monday night talk at CID [CITD]”.

Found this article via this BF article comment from Intruth.

“Seth Rich was responsible for an internet application that helped voters find their polling stations. He discovered that Hillary had set up bogus polling places that were not on the official record. Hillary then had DNC staffers merge the results from both sets of polling places, keeping the actual number of voters officially recorded at the legitimate polling station the same while the actual ballots that went to Bernie and represented those numbers were swapped out for her.

'“While most voters look up their location on their state website, voters who were signed up as Hillary Clinton supporters would be directed to her site to find their polling place. It was set up the same as any other DNC polling place – with DNC volunteers, regular voting machines etc – and a duplicate voter roster… The [DNC] supervisor would then pick up the roster at the legitimate polling place and the ballots there. He (or she) would then replace a number of Bernie Sanders ballots with an equal number of the ballots from the Hillary Clinton voting location.

[JS] “Seth rich DID figure out Hillary did this, and said nothing. Instead, he did the DNC leaks to WikiLeaks, hopefully to bring the whole house of cards down. The timing is so close on all of this that it can’t really be known if Seth was killed because he knew Hillary’s plot, or if he was killed because someone figured out it was him who did the leaks.'

One has to wonder if the "Legalstas" for Fox are going to look at this, in created a defense for Fox's actions; that being said, however, were I a betting person, I would not bet that this will happen here.

NOT JUST THE BEES, FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND STUDY SHOWS NEONICS MAY BE KILLING BIRDS TOO

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS
In addition to devastating effects on bee populations and the pollination needed to feed humans and other species, widely-used pesticides chemically related to nicotine may be deadly to birds and linked to some species' declines, according to a new study.

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan studied the pesticide imidacloprid, in the nicotine-linked class of chemicals called neonicotinoids, or neonics, and found that the pesticide had effects on migrating birds' health and ability to reproduce.

We've heard a lot about neonics & bees—but they're hurting birds too.

HARVARD ADMITS TO $9 MILLION DONATION FROM JEFFREY EPSTEIN

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Harvard University on Thursday night acknowledged that it had taken in approximately $9 million in donations from pedophile and alleged child sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein over the course of a decade ending in 2007, according to the Boston Globe.

The donations, the bulk of which occurred while former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers served as the university's President, provides clarity after Harvard maintained that it did not take money from Epstein after 2007 - just one year before he pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution and was sentenced to 13 months in jail with partial 'work' release.

"Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes were repulsive and reprehensible. I profoundly regret Harvard’s past association with him," Bacow continued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny, isn't it, that in this country, no matter how dirty the money may have been originally, it still buys those willing to do some horrific things to get it, "street cred", so that any university can bestow the "honor" of that person's donation, and get them positively noticed and acclaimed.

IF I were one of the bigwig attorneys for Harvard right now, talking to one of my tens of "Crisis Management Counselors" on my speed dial, I would be asking them, immediately, about creating a Harvard-inspired program, nationally, to stop child trafficking in its tracks, and find ways of making this program incredibly successful.

This issue has been a curse on this country for way too long a time, even from the times of the Franklin Scandal.

The Franklin Scandal; Still Evil After All these Years.

I know this will happen only when pigs discover they are aerodynamic; And I say this, because Harvard will most likely continue to support the monied who contribute to its noble causes, no matter where the money actually came from.

NEW YORK UNCOVERS $1 BILLION IN SACKLER FAMILY WIRE TRANSFERS

SOURCE: NYTIMES.COM

The New York attorney general’s office said Friday that it had tracked about $1 billion in wire transfers by the Sackler family, including through Swiss bank accounts, suggesting that the family tried to shield wealth as it faced a raft of litigation over its role in the opioid crisis.

Earlier this week, thousands of municipal governments and nearly two dozen states tentatively reached a settlement with the Sackler family and the company it owns, Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin. But the attorneys general of a majority of states, including New York and Massachusetts, are balking at the proposed deal, contending that the Sackler family has siphoned off company profits that should be used to pay for the billions of dollars in damage caused by opioids.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Sacklers did what nearly every other monied family does, when it discover that whatever their "gravy train" may have been, has had the emergency brakes pulled on it, and hared

Unfortunately for them, they were collectively too stupid to create an environment in which these alleged "covert transfers", stayed covert.

Too bad that they never has the opportunity to have lunch with Jeffrey Epstein, before his untimely demise at a Federal prison; now, THERE was a guy who, most likely, really knew how to do this.

US ENERGY HEAD TO DISCUSS NUCLEAR POWER WITH SAUDIS ON MONDAYPublished: September 13, 2019Share | Print This

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said on Friday he will meet the new Saudi energy minister on Monday and likely discuss plans Saudi Arabia has to build nuclear reactors.

Perry did not say where he would meet Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, who took over from Khalid al-Falih on Sunday. But a US official said the meeting would likely take place on the sidelines of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) meeting in Vienna next week.

The kingdom has so far resisted agreeing to standards that would block its ability to enrich uranium and reprocessing of plutonium, possible pathways to making an atomic weapon. On Monday, Prince Abdulaziz said the kingdom wanted to enrich uranium for its nuclear power programme, potentially complicating talks with the Trump administration on the atomic pact and the role of US companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary Perry, a word, please; you cannot deny to the world that Saudi Arabia wants nuclear energy for nuclear bombs, particularly vis a vis Iran.

You have to make whatever agreement the Saudis want stick, because if you do not, Saudi Arabia will get whatever it needs from nuclear-armed Pakistan, no questions asked.

Ah yes, this is JUST what the Middle East needs right now; yet another despotic theocracy with nuclear weapons!!

BUSTED? JUAN GUAIDO POSES WITH NOTORIOUS COLOMBIAN DRUG CARTEL AT VENEZUELA BORDER IN LEAKED PHOTOS

SOURCE: RT

Juan Guaido may have some explaining to do. Photos have emerged depicting the Venezuelan opposition leader with gang members, confirmed by Colombian police to be leaders in the violent drug trafficking outfit, Los Rastrojos.
The photos first appeared in a tweet on Friday, shared by Wilfredo Canizares of the Fundacion Progresar (Progress Foundation), a Colombian NGO. They depict the US-sponsored “interim president” of Venezuela Juan Guaido posing chummily with two known drug lords, known under the aliases “The Brother,” and “The Minor.”

Canizares said the photos prove that Guaido “coordinated” with the gang to cross the border into Colombia in February, where he attended a Live Aid-style concert organized by billionaire philanthropist Richard Branson, hoping to gin up international support for the opposition’s cause.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Guaido was this Administration's "chosen one", to lead Columbia out of its current state of of chaos?!? IF these allegations are true, they would demonstrate that be they Democrats or Republicans, or "the US's anointed leaders" over seas, they just "can't get along" without mainlining that great "high" of freshly laundered drug money.

The Facts About Rifles and Crime

In fact, the total number of people killed by rifles of ALL types (not just the AR-15 that people like Beto O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell are demanding people be ready to turn in) for the last five years is less than the total number of people killed by knives in 2017 alone (1,582 to 1,591). Tell that to an average American in normal circumstances, and they’d come away with a clear sense that the AR-15 is not the problem.

ICE Accidentally Reveals Fascist “Hyper-Realistic” Urban Warfare Training Facility At Army Base

By Aaron Kesel

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency accidentally revealed the location of a new “urban warfare” training facility that is expected to include “hyper-realistic” simulations of homes, hotels and commercial buildings in Chicago and Arizona, Newsweek reported.

The “hyper-realistic” urban training ground will be housed in Fort Benning, Georgia the report details. The information was revealed after ICE failed to redact its acquisition form document that was posted online. After copying and pasting the document’s contents into a separate document, Newsweek said it was able to establish that the facility will be built at the U.S. Army post.

This is significant since Fort Benning is the same location where ICE houses its Office of Training and Tactical Programs (OTTP) Firearms and Tactics Division according to a May 2017 news release published on ICE’s website...

Top 10 American War Crimes

Most Americans like to think their military is a tool for preserving the freedom and well-being of people throughout the world. Generations of American soldiers have indeed performed noble and heroic feats in defense of these values. However, since the earliest days of the nation, encounters with the US military have often meant death and destruction, as opposed to freedom and justice. From the American Revolution to the War on Terror, soldiers from every generation have taken part in atrocities of one form or another. If there is any hope for preventing American war crimes in the future, the past transgressions of the US military must be acknowledged and, when possible, the perpetrators brought to justice.

Shocking moment women's soccer crowd BOO as US Armed Forces enlistees are asked to pledge loyalty to President Trump in 9/11 ceremony

A U.S. Armed Forces swearing in ceremony during a National Women's Soccer League match in Oregon on 9/11 drew loud boos from the crowd when the enlistees were asked to pledge allegiance to President Trump.

The ceremony took place in the middle of the field at Providence Park stadium in Portland on Wednesday night as a way to commemorate 9/11 during the Portland Thorns and North Carolina Courage game.

The group of enlistees were initially cheered on by the 17,000-strong crowd when they started taking the Oath of Enlistment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was unfortunate in the extreme; can we, as a nation, manage to please keep politics away from sports?!?!?

And there have been many moments which I have felt that President Trump has been a colossal disappointment as President.

But when I criticize him, I work to be as fact-centric as possible, so that the points I am making will not get lost in a sea of vitriol.

There are many more productive things to do, if one does not like a political incumbent; petitioning; peaceful protests; and getting out there to encourage people to vote, and get them registered to do so.

DRONE ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL FACILITIES IS MAJOR ESCALATION: The full details of the most recent attack on September 14 were not available on Saturday morning and it was not clear where the drones had come from.BY SETH J. FRANTZMAN SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 12:48

The attacks began around four in the morning; video showed massive fires, billowing smoke and locals reported explosions. Iranian media implied that the attacks were carried out by Houthi rebels in Yemen, who have been backed by Theran. However the facilities that were struck are in northeastern Saudi Arabia, closer to Bahrain and Qatar. A drone would have to fly 1,000 km. to reach the facilities.

But the attack was also a serious escalation. This is the third attack of this kind, a long-range strike on key oil infrastructure. It shows that ability of the drone operator to carry out precision attacks. It also shows they have improve the ordnance carried by the drones, and that the drones can fly long-distances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This coverage, by jpost.com, is a far more sane, and nuanced article than those hitting other blogs on this topic, and one thing was made very clear here; at this moment, no one knows who was to blame. However, the Daily Mail didn't hesitate to run with the following headline:

Iran-backed militants admit drone swarm strike on world's largest oil processing plant in Saudi and at second nearby facility sparking huge fires as tensions reach boiling point following tanker attacks

The article then went on to state the following: 'A military spokesman for Yemen's Houthi rebels, considered an Iranian proxy force in the region, has claimed responsibility for today's attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais, two major facilities in eastern Saudi Arabia run by state-owned oil giant Aramco.'

OK, Henry Martin, and FHP, if the guy was stating this information publicly, who, please, was he?!?

Because forgive me; but one thing I learned in my civics class, was that reporting was all about "Who, Where, What, Why, and How." How can people believe this codswallop when you have refused to let your readers know who actually made this statement?!?

PressTV.com gave an interesting touch, by claiming that the attacks didn't come from Iran, but rather by Houthi rebels, and here is the way they covered it: Fires engulf Saudi Arabia's oil facilities after drone attacks

This article (unlike Daily Mail), then states the following: 'The movement's military spokesman General Yahya Sare'e said 10 drones were deployed against the sites in Abqaiq and Khurais, and pledged to widen the range of attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Now, this guy appears to have been around for a long time, as the public face of the movement; Image: General Yahya Sare'eHe looks to be somewhere in his later 30s, and has the face, and demeanor, of someone intimately acquainted with war.

But the questions which need answering, include:

1. Why would Iran want to be blamed for attacking Saudi Arabia right now?!?
This makes utterly zero sense. The Iranian leadership understands that if, somehow, they are being blamed for this attack, and "the crud" of these accusations is somehow made to stick it, will hasten a US/Saudi /(and, probably covert) Israeli attack against it.

2. Where are these sophisticated drones in the the rebels' arsenal, actually being made?!? Are they truly Yemeni created home made weapons, or from other Shiaa supporting enclaves in the Middle East?

But there is one thing I do know; a couple of days ago, Netanyahu was in Moscow, and made the following statement: Meeting Putin after 3-hour wait, Netanyahu vows to stop Iran’s attacks on Israel:

On pre-election trip with an eye on Russian-born voters, PM says Tehran’s presence in Syria is ‘intolerable threat,’ credits his ties with Putin for best Moscow-Jerusalem relations

But the problem is, these attacks have been against Syria; not against Iran proper.

Painting a drone with national colors of an enemy country, or any enemy group, is no big deal; but the big question is, did Netanyahu make this call because he's three days away from the National Election in Israel (and with all Knesset seats up for grabs, I might add), and is looking to have a full-scale war against Syria by the time Monday rolls around?!?

In looking at this, in the most sang-froid way possible; cui bene?!? Who benefits?!?

This doesn't benefit the Houthi rebels, because Saudi Arabia and the US will pound down harder and harder on Yemen.

Iran doesn't benefit, because characterizing these Houthi rebels as being "pro-Iranian" simply brings the date of a serious air/land conflict between Iran, the US and Saudi Arabia ever closer, with Russia most probably taking Iran's side in the conflict.

But Israel, mounting a full-tilt boogie attack by bombing Saudi Arabia's oil structure,, with falsely colored drones, and blaming the alleged strike against Yemen, could definitely benefit Israel, by creating an environment ripe for escalation, in Syria, and quickly.

Please remember that word, "quickly"; if I am correct, we could see the events in the Middle East stumbling out of control as quickly as tomorrow, 15 September. Folks, I am so hoping that I am dead wrong on this, but the degree to which Israel is playing its hand in Syria, so close to the Israeli election, does give me cause for concern here.

Latest Russian spy story looks like another elaborate media deception

When I was 20, I studied at the Leningrad Polytechnical Institute, in the waning days of the Soviet empire. Most of the Russians I met were amusingly free of stress caused by following news. Why would they bother? Bull-factories like Rossiskaya Gazeta and Leningradsaya Pravda were basically collections of dreary government news releases rewritten to sound like news reports.

I saw newspapers in Leningrad shredded into slivers of toilet paper, used in place of curtains in dorm rooms, even stuffed into overcoat linings as insulation. But I can’t recall a Russian person actually reading a Soviet newspaper for the content. That’s how useless its “news” was.

We’re headed to a similar place.
