UPDATE: “Macron is more Obama than Obama. More Blair than Blair. A creation, groomed and glossed for this “spontaneous” bid for power by the banking class he unashamedly represents.” Off Guardian
The word is out, the votes are in and it looks like the French presidential election is following the trend in Westernized nations: it will pit continued neoliberal globalization verses breaking away toward a nationalistic populist turn. The Greeks saw it first. And then they were betrayed. The British voted to exit the EU and everyday someone over there is doing their level best to see that decision is overruled. And here in the states, the people begrudgingly elected the Duke of Orange because his globalist, lying war-monger of a “progressive” of an opponent was just too sickening to elect. But his populist facade is melting away quickly like the Wicked Witch of the West after a cold shower.
Across the neoliberalized globe, support for faux-socialist Emmanuel Macron is coming in from the elite puppet-class.
A German MP and Angela Merkel’s chief of staff, Peter Altmaier, stated that the result shows that “France and Europe can jointly win!”
German government spokesman Steffen Seibert also tweeted his support for Macron’s pro-EU and social market economy platform, wishing him “All the best for the next 2 weeks.”..
The EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini, went as far as calling Macron “the hope and future of our generation.”
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also “congratulated Emmanuel Macron on his result in the first round and wished him all the best for the next round,” Juncker’s spokesman, Margaritis Schinas, said on Twitter. RT
Unlike his opposition, Macron will not pull France out of the EU. He will not get them off the euro. He does not support lessening sanctions on Russia. He believes Russia “invaded” Crimea. These are key policy positions that makes him the European globalist elite favor his election over his competition.
But his real appeal to them lies in his willingness to serve at home in the neoliberal restructuring of France’s economic and social structure. That’s what makes him their golden boy because, frankly, that’s what he was made for. Kind of like Obama in that regard.
Emmanuel Macron was born to upper middle class parents. He was sent to an elite school that manufactured future political Manchurian Candidates who’s future jobs would be to infiltrate the economic sectors of government and do all they could to turn them neoliberal. Here is a brief timeline of his life from Financial Times
1995 Attends a prestigious high school in Paris. Studies philosophy at Nanterre university and public affairs at Sciences Po before moving to the École nationale d’administration (ENA) — an elite school preparing top candidates for France’s senior civil service
2004 Graduates from ENA to become an “Inspector of Finances” at the economy ministry
2008 Works as investment banker at Rothschild, where he earns about €2.9m, notably for his role in advising Nestlé on the acquisition of a Pfizer unit
2010 Begins work as economic adviser to François Hollande, the Socialist presidential candidate
2012 Serves as deputy secretary-general at the Elysée Palace
2014 Becomes economy minister in the Hollande government
2015 Introduces a business reform package that prime minister Manuel Valls forces through parliament despite protest from the public as well as within the Socialist party
It took him only 20 years to go from an elite high school to implementing a business reform package in government. No election needed. Stuck in that position by Hollande who also attended that neoliberal finishing school for future government officials.
Like corrupt politicians do here in the states, he went through the revolving door, in and out, from government to a stint with the Rothschild globalist elite banking system then back to government again with fresh ideas and instructions from his globalist masters.
And he learned his lessons well.
When finally held to giving an answer on his economic strategy for France if elected, Emmanuel Macron said he would implement a 60 billion euro austerity measure plan which is about a 20% increase from what has been happening under the leadership of the fake socialist Hollande. The current president’s neoliberal policies have made him the most unpopular president in France’s history with an approval rating somewhere near that of a day-old urine-soaked baguette.
When there were major protests taking place in France within the transportation and sanitation industries, protests against the neoliberal labor reforms supported by Macron, he flippantly told a reporter “the best way to afford a suit is to work” in response to angry protesters talking about his expensive suits. The image of some wealthy spoiled elitist telling a homeless persons to “get a job!” is unavoidable. Totally out of touch with the people in his country. The video of that went viral and his poll numbers dropped slightly.
Macron’s only “success” in government, aside from selling off a major French national asset to GE (more below), was getting his neoliberal pro-business reform package decimated in parliament and then imposed on the people of the nation by presidential decree.
“One of Macron’s biggest accomplishments as a minister under Hollande is his eponymous pro-business “Loi Macron.” He wrote it to steer the socialist government towards more business-friendly policies, and wrote it with Prime Minister Manuel Valls.
This was the first law he tried to pass as economy minister and it was extremely unpopular with the French population as well as Parliament. Many believed that it went against the socialist values of France.
The law was actually so unpopular with both the National Assembly and Senate that it had to be passed by invoking article 49, which made it a question of confidence in Parliament.” Business Insider
“Loi Macron” was a boon for French business owners and therefore showed Macron’s willingness to serve their interests above all else.
“The draft law is the brainchild of Mr Macron and Manuel Valls, the centre-left prime minister. Both want to steer the Socialist government towards more business-friendly policies. The bill, which will go to parliament in late January, is a mixed bag of measures. They include loosening Sunday-trading rules; selling between €5 billion and €10 billion of state shareholdings; liberalising the country’s inter-city coach industry to boost competition with trains; and deregulating certain professions, such as notaries.” Economist
Macron has a history of using his positions in government to help sell off French national assets to international businesses which is the core of neoliberal globalization. His big business backers put him in place and he repays them by selling off the country and turning his back on the French people. This is the exact same thing the neoliberals do in nations across the world after we regime change them. Find a stooge, put him in power and he gets wealthy by selling off his country to our elites one piece at a time.
“What’s also certain is that by being such a staunch proponent of globalization, Macron is going to preside over the selling-off and de-nationalization of French industries and businesses.
Macron sold it off to America’s General Electric, in a huge betrayal of the national French interest and a major victory for America’s capitalists. Of course, selling off industrial jewels to the Americans is what “globalization” means most of the time.” Ramin Mazaheri
This is why Macron’s supporters come from the elite of the elite in French business circles.
“A list of Macron’s supporters reads like an extract from the “who’s who” of the French ruling class. Henry Hermand, a millionaire with investments in retail and real estate who has funded a number of think tanks close to the PS’s right wing, was Macron’s main sponsor. Pierre Bergé, the rich co-owner of Le Monde; Alain Minc, a finance inspector who set up his own consultancy and served as a key unofficial adviser to Nicolas Sarkozy; Jacques Attali, Mitterand’s adviser and prominent financier; Serge Weiberg, the chairman of the pharmaceuticals giant Sanofi and prominent Parisian banker; and Pascal Lamy fill out the ranks of Macron’s boosters.
Christian Dargnat, the former executive director of BNP-Paribas’s asset-management business, is doing the fundraising and Bernard Mourad, the former investment banker and CEO of Altice Media Group, is responsible for business relations and economic policy.” Jacobin Magazine
Keep in mind, while many MSM outlets put on a show about how they say this election is different because the two main parties in France are out of the running in this, the final round of presidential elections, both major parties stepped aside for Macron’s rise
“Beyond the campaign’s many twists and turns — from François Hollande’s decision not to stand for reelection to the collapse of the mainstream right’s candidate, François Fillon” Jacobin Magazine
The candidates from both the socialist party as well as the one from the Republicans have endorsed the globalist Macron. They did so immediately as if that were the plan all along. Fillon was a flawed candidate from the start being under investigation for all sorts of fraud issues and the socialist candidate never stood a chance with the deep seated hatred of Hollande and the real socialist, Melenchon, serving as a reminder of what real socialism looks like.
The ruling class, the Business Class, in France welcome his anointing as the great change they have been looking for to fully neoliberalize their country once and for all.
“The ruling class supports Macron because he can help transform the Fifth Republic’s political-institutional system and preserve its capacity to dictate government policy in the years ahead. Macron’s election would radically realign French politics, clearing the way for a reform agenda that has faced numerous obstacles over the past twenty years.” Jacobin Magazine
Understandably, Emmanuel Macron’s popularity seems odd to some French writers in light of all that neoliberal globalization has done to France as of late.
“As a longtime daily news correspondent in France I have ignored Macron as long as I could. I thought he could never be taken seriously, given such a damning list of faults:
He is only 39 years old; has never held elected office; was a Rothschild investment banker; designed the “Macron Law”, a right-wing labor code roll back which sparked months of anti-government protests and repression last year; he is a multi-millionaire, although he declared his net worth to be €63,000; he actually has 7 grandkids; he is pro-EU in a country which wants a “Frexit” referendum; he is pro-austerity in a country which hates austerity because it hasn’t worked anywhere, ever; claimed to be a target of Russian hacking, without providing proof; claimed to be a target of Russian propaganda, apparently because RT dared to quote a French parliamentarian who opposes his ties to US high finance.” Ramin Mazaheri
Like they did in Britain prior to Brexit and here in the states in support of Hillary Clinton, the corporatist media is acting as a press agency for Macron. He even received a staged call from globalist former president Barack Obama to help boost his popularity in France where apparently Barack enjoys a measure of support
This website published only one article on the French presidential election thus far and in that I supported the candidacy of the only real socialist in the running. Where I stand now is with anyone but this globalist technocrat who’s lifelong ambition is to destroy the French state as it was in order to replace it with something akin to Chile under Augusto Pinochet.
This too is a redo of the US presidential election where as a real socialist and liberal-leaning American, I found the mere thought of casting a vote for our globalist elite candidate was a detestable proposition one from which I might never fully recover.
Back then, though the only real option was … the Duke of Orange… that was still preferable to succumbing to Killary.
In this case, La Pen’s neo-Nazi father and her rantings about “Islamists” taking over France aside, it looks like the voters have a similar decision to make. Continued neoliberal globalization verses a candidate who at least promises a nationalist populist turn away from the path leading toward a New World Order. Whether she upholds her promises or instead pulls a “Trump” on her voters if elected, only time will tell.
This is what Macron was made for. Like Obama’s manufactured rise to power, Macron has been as well. The oligarchs, the elites, the Republican party, the fake socialists of Hollande, the complicit media and everyone else who serves the interests of the New World Order will do everything they can in the next few weeks to push him over the top so he can fulfill his lifelong quest to do their bidding and hand over France to the technocrats once and for all.
I certainly hope the French people don’t give him the chance.

Marching in the streets of the world yesterday, tens of thousands of concerned citizens (and people employed by the various sciences) came out from their labs and school rooms to inform us, the ignorant masses, that science, glorious science, is all important, it reaches past partisan boundaries and cannot be, must not be, challenged or mocked without the direst consequences.
Apart from those who were out there protesting the Duke of Orange’s cuts to education and the EPA, those who were there protesting his deregulation plan which will decimate the environment, those whom I applaud and stand with, most others were out there sending their message in support of the theory of man-made GLOBAL WARMING…. oooooo
And their message was simple… you aren’t an Ordained Glorious Scientist so shut up and accept this as the ultimate truth. So sayeth Science. So sayeth the lord.
The ignorant plebes needed to be educated by the authority figures in the white lab robes coats so they even brought out the schoolhouse chalk boards to make damn sure we didn’t miss their patronizing lesson. You are children in need of … education.
After all, 97% of all scientists agree. Says so right there on the board. How do you simpletons dare disagree with numbers like that?
It used to be the the preachers, the priests and the rabbis who put forth the declarations for the masses to follow blindly. They too spoke to the gods and who were we to question their divine knowledge? They had sanctified insight which we mere mortals did not.
People were told there would be a terrible price too pay if they listened to the heretics and questioned the almighty truth handed down by the anointed ones. A terrible price indeed. Floods, famine, drought, pestilence, plagues, volcano eruptions… these were the wrath of the gods visited upon the community because of the crazy unbelievers and their dreaded DOUBT.
But those were primitive days and certainly we have evolved beyond such measures of influence and control… haven’t we?
Oh Glorious Science… it has indeed produced amazing contributions to society since the Dark Ages.
We put men on the moon… right?
We cured cancer or… maybe not for everyone.
We ended hunger and developed boundless energy for all for free in order to liberate us from those who seek our endless enslavement to serve their quest for riches. Right?
Oh Mighty Science… what have you really done for us, lately?
Let us humbly count a few of your glorious blessings.
The Global Warming scam… is an attempt to force every nation on the planet into a global dictatorship with unelected technocrats sitting at the top of the pyramid who make every decision for every nation regarding their industry, agriculture and economic structure in order to protect us all from the evils of self determination and … oh god… unchecked industrialization.
The industrial revolution eventually empowered workers and lifted millions upon millions out of poverty across the globe. Once unions and worker’s rights movements developed, the first middle class was born and people became not only economically liberated, but also politically empowered for the first time.
Environmental protections had to be set to keep the greedy from destroying all that surrounded their enterprise just as labor rights had to be refined to keep them from brutally exploiting their workers.
But in the end, fortunes were still made and entire communities were lifted out of poverty. And from that, real power began to shift. Parents became politically active. Children received educations and exceeded the successes of their parents. Nation states generated taxes and used that revenue to improve the quality of life for those they served.
And ultimately, once those nations became strong enough, they threw off the shackles of the imperialist nations who lorded over them and demanded their fealty.
The underdeveloped nations cannot be allowed to follow in that path. Therefore their industries cannot thrive unchecked. We don’t allow for elections in other countries to record a tally of the “wrong” votes, so how could the Masters of the Universe allow for the rise of a hundred industrial revolutions that threaten to liberate our client states from institutions like the IMF and World Bank?
Nations must be declared “climate terrorists” when they dare to deny our technocrats their holy demands, those put forth from Great Science who whispers only to our new priests of the white robes in a language only they can interpret.
They threaten the survival of our entire species with their “warming skepticism” and their childish insistence on self determination. Can they not see Science has spoken?
Such heretics cannot be allowed to lead. Such nations must be brought in line with the consensus of the 97% (who work for companies like GE, Monsanto, BP, 3M, Abbot Laboratories, Lockheed Martin or they work for higher education institutions who get funding from companies like GE, Monsanto, BP, 3M, Abbot Laboratories, Lockheed Martin)
The history of the science of Global Warming is fraught with fraud. That is undeniable.
When the leading advocates for your campaign are Billy Nye and Al Gore, you got problems. Serious, deep problems because they are both fraudulent little men looking for something, anything to put them in the spotlight and keep them there. They are ignorant and just like every useful idiot who was ever used before them, their egos fuel their vulnerability and their ignorance.
When there is too much rain, it’s Global Warming. When there isn’t enough, it’s Global Warming. Too cold? Too hot? Too much snow? Not enough? It’s all Global Warming.
Wars? That’s because of Global Warming.
The rise of “ISIS” and al-Qaeda? Global Warming causes that as well.
Floods? Famine? Pestilence? Plaques? All because of … you guessed it.
This is what Glorious Science has brought us. To a point where well meaning activists believe they are fighting to save the world when in fact they are fighting to hand it over to technocrats and millionaires who will rule by decree like a Board of Popes from a mahogany-lined boardroom deep in the heart of London somewhere. The industries will be theirs and the regulations non-existent. They will extract and exploit the natural resources of the world and enslave billions to serve their interests.
Once they are cloaked in the armor of world saviors, nothing will be beyond their reach as they scour the earth for every shekel, dollar or pound they can squeeze from it.
The Feel Good rush these young people now thrive on, will be over by then.
They can only hope they find employment with someone so they can eek out an existence in the New World Order they are unwittingly helping to bring about.
They will look back on these photos and marvel at their naivete. Ah, the folly of youth.
Oh Glorious Science… indeed the road to hell is paved with good intentions… is it not?
And what a powerful tool to understand and exploit… thanks to our Benevolent Social Sciences.
Drones... what more can I say? Thank you Dear Science for the flying death squads from above that seek out all those who oppose our great will… our democracy… our NATIONAL INTERESTS abroad. These, your angels of mercy, bring about CHANGE with a swift dose of Righteous Science.
Electronic Voting Machines… How could we possibly vote in America without your help to make sure we all VOTE THE RIGHT WAY? Oh Majestic Science let us not end up like those savages in France who VOTE TODAY with the paper ballots of Satan and their plexiglass boxes of shame. How can they not TRUST you?
Oh Blessed Science and your proprietary vote counting software… lead us out of the dark ages and into the light where private companies, sanctioned by the evil state, lift us out of doubt and deliver us a pristine, unquestionable, unverifiable election result.
We have FAITH IN YOU OH SCIENCE that you wont BETRAY OUR TRUST… EVER.
H1N1... Science the Almighty said you MUST get your vaccination! SCIENCE WOULD NOT LIE! It’s a PANDEMIC! Are you a FOOL?
ZIKA!!!!!!!!!… do you want a baby with a TINY HEAD!!! ZIKA!!!!!
Chemical Weapons, Biological Weapons, Nuclear Weapons in IRAQ!!!... oh Marvelous Science… you helped our intelligence community PROVIDE our messengers a GRAND SLAM HOME RUN at the UN Security Council as he strove to show the evils of Saddam Hussain. Bless you, bless you SCIENCE for helping to stop that MADMAN and the one million dead Iraqis who refused to go along with the plan.
The INTERNET OF EVERYTHING… Oh this, this, this is the master achievement of Beautiful Science. This is the culmination of all that Science stands for. Everything seen, everything heard, everything recorded and known about everyone at all times public and private… all for the proprietary use of those Glorious Companies whom the Priests of Science serve.
Vaccines… the human child’s immune system can withstand a thousand vaccines, so says a Magnificent Scientist. Pump them full of Science, damn it. Their bodies are a repository of profits just waiting to be realized. There can be no harm when Scientists are in control! Science would never put profits above the well being of others. It is against the prime directive.
GMOs… oh dear god, Science is BETTER THAN NATURE and SMARTER THAN GOD. Cast off the shackles of the oppression of your old gods and behold the modified beauty and profits of the pragmatic Order of the New World.
Sure our child mortality rate rivals those of third world nations.
Yes, hospitals kill more Americans everyday than anything else.
True, deliberate corporate malfeasance and the scientists they employ kill more people every year than drugs, drunk drivers, terrorism and war combined.
Sure Bill Gates, the Holy Father of Modern American Science, wants to kill of a couple billion humans so the wealthy can live a more enjoyable life on the planet.
All that and more is true.
but… STAND UP FOR SCIENCE!!! you plebes. You uneducated, backward, troglodytes.
STAND UP FOR SCIENCE and join the Feel Good wave that is sweeping the nation. Warm yourself in the self-satisfaction that comes from knowing better than all those around you and repeat the mantras parroted to you every day. Repeat them on social media (Oh thank you Science for that one) and watch your influence GROW. You can be an Eco Star. Just say the RIGHT THINGS and never EVER question… THE SCIENCE
The debate is over. So sayeth the Cult of the New Priests. No more debate is allowed. When you are confronted by the heretics their words are an affront to the species and their message is a cancer that will grow inside you. They must be ignored, spurned, called-out, cast out, banished, excommunicated and driven from memory. Their ideas will destroy the planet as they threaten our New Better World Order. Expose them in the workplace, in your Home Owners Association, at your local Starbucks.
Oh Blessed Science, let us not be labeled as nobbers. The shame… the shame…
Glorious Science is always true… even when it is proven to have been false.
Even when it proved to be manipulated for the good of others at your expense.
Even… when it proved to be vicious and cruel.
You do not see this because you are stupid and they do meta-analysis and evaluate globally which makes them better than you…
… so be silent and worship as they pass in the parade. Take them at their word. The debate is over. New evidence is unnecessary. Redundancies are extemporaneous.
Close your eyes. Repeat the mantras. The Priests of the New World Order have spoken. They have pristine White Robes of Status and your doubts are… quaint.
Like a child’s.
Meaningless noise signifying nothing.
Save the world.
Warm yourself in the rightness of Global Warming rightthink.
Don’t be a nobber.
Don’t risk wrongthink.
The Priests of the New World Order have spoken and who are you to doubt them?
How could anyone question all the great things Glorious Science has brought humanity?
The United States campaign to liberate the Iraqi city of Mosul from Daesh undermines Syrian positions in Deir ez-Zor, indicating Washington’s wish for Daesh to capture the city, Assad told Sputnik.
He said US attacks on Daesh in Mosul mean “they are against ISIS [Daesh], but at the same time, they are supporting ISIS and they allow them to cross the border from Iraq into Syria.”
“It means they helped ISIS to come to Deir Ez-Zor and to undermine the Syrian Army who are defending Deir ez-Zor. They wanted Deir ez-Zor to fall into the hands of ISIS,” Assad said.
Deir ez-Zor and its military air base have been under siege by Daesh for over three years, with food and ammunition only delivered by air…

Israel has reportedly attacked positions of the Syrian Arab Army in Quneitra near the Golan Heights, a legal part of Syrian territory which Israel has illegally occupied since 1967.
A Syrian source has reported the following information to Sputnik,
“Enemy warplanes of Israel launched two missiles from the occupied territory at 18:45 on one of the positions of our army. It caused material damage”.
Israel’s repeated attacks on Syria are generally ignored by the US and its allies. The last major Israel attack on Syria resulted in the Israeli ambassador to Moscow being summoned by Russia to explain what had happened.
The Syrian source continued,
“These actions will not stop the fight of our Armed Forces against terrorist groups which are close to Israel”.
Israel earlier claimed that a missile from Syria landed harmlessly on Israeli occupied territory.

More reasons to believe that the Idlib chemical weapons attack was indeed a false flag, for which the US, UK, France (and many western powers) are trying to cover up.
The Organisation For The Prohibition Of Chemical Weapons has rejected Russia and Iran’s proposal for a new team to probe the suspected chemical attack earlier this month in Syria. Moscow’s pushing for a wider investigation, because it believes the OPCW cannot properly confirm anything until it’s actually visited the site.
The blocking of the Russian proposal at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on investigating the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib province aims to direct attention to the idea of regime change in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
The OPCW is not willing to properly probe the alleged chemical attack in Idlib. This is very odd.

One day after her network joined the rest of corporate media in cheering for President Trump’s missile attack on Syria, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back to regular business: seeing Russian collaboration with Trump at work.
It’s “impossible,” fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell told Maddow on April 7, to rule out that “Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week – so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all of the praise he’s picked up over the past 24 hours.”
Maddow concurred, suggesting that only the FBI’s ongoing probe into Trump’s alleged collusion with Russian electoral interference will determine the truth. “Maybe eventually we’ll get an answer to that from [FBI Director] Jim Comey,” Maddow said.
The Washington Post noted that the “conspiracy theory” drew “derision from across the political spectrum.” But it was not out of place.
MSNBC, the country’s most prominent liberal media outlet, has played a key role in stoking the frenzy over Trump’s alleged involvement with Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential race — in lock step with the Democratic Party’s most avid partisans.
Jennifer Palmieri, a senior member of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, captured the prevailing mentality when she recently urged party members to talk about the Russian “attack on our republic” — and to do so “relentlessly and above all else.”…

from RTA Moscow-based think tank has dismissed a Reuters report which claimed that it plotted a Russian intervention in the US presidential election. The think tank’s head said the people behind the accusations were merely promulgating a conspiracy theory.
The Reuters exclusive claimed that the Russian Institute of Strategic Studies (RISS) penned two confidential documents “providing the framework and rationale for what US intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election.”
Reuters did not see the documents itself but rather relied on accounts from three current and four former US officials, who claimed that US intelligence had acquired the files. None of the sources was named by Reuters, a common feature of US media reports on alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election…

Investigators believe the March leak of classified CIA material by WikiLeaks was an inside job, CBS reports. The intelligence agency has not said when the material was taken and given to WikiLeaks, nor has it provided any information officially on how the thousands of classified documents were stolen. The disclosure by WikiLeaks, which outlines the extent of the CIA’s hacking capabilities, is considered one of the most damaging in the agency’s history; it is also now considered to be the work of an employee or contractor at the intelligence agency with physical access to the material.
“Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material,” according to CBS News. “WikiLeaks has said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence.”…

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people…

It now appears that we are entering a phase where the entire Russiagate fake news is collapsing unto itself, with little fanfare and media attention…given that North Korea and Trump’s war presidency has placated the liberal left and neocon right.
It was but a few weeks ago when Buzzfeed released the now infamous fake news dossier, claiming Donald Trump was the recipient of “Golden Showers” in a Moscow hotel, and Putin had it all on video…making Trump the ultimate, compromised US President.
The dossier was allegedly compiled by an anonymous source (who we now know as former MI6 agent Christopher Steele), who claimed the Russian government had been nurturing Donald Trump as a potential president for “at least 5 years,” offering him lucrative business opportunities, supplied with intelligence, and arranged for “perverted sexual acts” to be able to blackmail Trump.
The entire dossier was such fiction that the majority of mainstream news media outlets refused to run the story. It took fake news listicle site Buzzfeed to publish the dossier, and very fake news CNN to reference the Buzzfeed article…

“A senior administration official blamed a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House over reports that the aircraft carrier has not made its way to the Sea of Japan” CNN
After the Pentagon dropped the ‘MOAB’ device on a bunch of insurgents hiding in Afghani caves the CIA built 30 years ago for the Mujahideen (al Qaeda) President Trump announced he had given “total authorization” authority to the Pentagon so they could wage the war they needed against “ISIS” (which is funded by us and all of our allies in the region)
Translation? Trump didn’t authorize the use of the MOAB for the distraction in Afghanistan. The Pentagon made that call.
I personally don’t believe Trump gave the authorization specifically for the strike on the Syrian airbase either. No president would want to be seen stuffing his face with “beautiful” chocolate cake in a glorified, over-priced country club while his military was potentially starting WWIII. To use a phrase that is currently popular with the babbling talking heads: that’s just bad optics.
Now we find out that the carrier group assigned to the USS Carl Vinson never went to North Korea like we were told a week ago and that instead, it sailed south toward Indonesia from Malaysia right after several high ranking Pentagon officials told us via the complicit media and possibly even the White House that it was “steaming” to North Korea to keep the dastardly Kim Jung Un from running yet another underground nuclear test.
A spokesman for the U.S. Pacific Command, which Harris heads, linked the deployment directly to the “number one threat in the region,” North Korea, and its “reckless, irresponsible and destabilizing program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters on April 11 that the Carl Vinson was “on her way up there.” Asked about the deployment in an interview with Fox Business Network that aired April 12, President Trump said: “We are sending an armada, very powerful.” Washington Post
A statement released by U.S. Pacific Command made it very clear, the group was headed north toward North Korea.
Sec. of Defense Mattis told reporters that the strike was already in the Pacific near the Korean peninsula on several occasions.
“She’s stationed there in the western Pacific for a reason. She operates freely up and down the Pacific,” said Mattis of the Vinson, implying the imposing carrier would send a message to North Korea and other actors in the region.
However, when pressed on what exactly that reason might be, Mattis seemed to backtrack saying “there’s not a specific reason or demand signal,” that brought the Vinson to the Korean peninsula Business Insider
Not only was the group not in the region… it was 3,500 miles away and wasn’t even in the same ocean.
Plus, Mattis lied to CNN when he said the scheduled drills in the Indian Ocean with the Australian navy had been cancelled. That was a total and complete lie.
Further confusion was added when Secretary of Defense James Mattis told reporters last week that the exercises had been canceled. Multiple US defense officials told CNN that Mattis had inadvertently misspoke and that it was a port visit in Australia that was canceled to allow for the group’s redeployment to the waters near the Korean Peninsula. CNN
The drills had not been cancelled. That’s what the strike group has been doing all this time. Playing war games while the country thought we had another Cuban Missile Crisis developing in the waters off Korea.
All sorts of military apologists are busy spinning up justifications for this “miscommunication” right now. They say it was designed to frighten North Korea.
That’s total BS.
As I wrote late last night, the Pentagon is fully aware of the systems the North Koreans have in place to monitor and track the locations of our fleets all across the world. They knew immediately the Vinson was “steaming” south to participate in the war games rather than heading to the Korean peninsula to stop the fictional nuclear weapons test that never happened and probably was never even planned.
This vast disinformation campaign had nothing to do with fooling the North Koreans therefore it was created for the purpose of conducting information warfare on the intended target, the target watching all the media outlets the Pentagon, the Defense Department and Gen. Mattis were speaking on… it was intended for us.
Why? It was a distraction from any number of these important stories that were talking shape prior to this action:
It is clear that the glorious generals and the whole of the Defense Department lied deliberately to the media and to the people who fund their lavish lifestyles i.e. the citizens of the United States. It is clear they did it deliberately to mislead us and not the North Koreans. What isn’t clear is whether or not they lied to the Commander in Chief as well. But it appears they did.
White House officials said on Tuesday they were relying on guidance from the Defense Department. Officials there described a glitch-ridden sequence of events, from a premature announcement of the deployment by the military’s Pacific Command to an erroneous explanation by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis—all of which perpetuated the false narrative that an American armada was racing toward the waters off North Korea. The Atlantic
This is not a small thing folks.
Yes, the Pentagon lies. They lie all the time. Like the corporate fake news media who helped them with this scare, that’s what they do.
But this is different. This is a lie designed to misdirect and obfuscate the American people. And pretending we might be on the brink of a major war or at least setting up another Cuban Missile Crisis situation just so the media wont focus on real world issues taking place at the same time goes well beyond the pale of the Pentagon usual arsenal of “white lies”
Family members of these service men and women on those ships thought their loved ones were potentially steaming into a conflict with a heavily armed adversary who, by the way, is backed by China. A nuclear power.
This is outrageous and if the White House is correct and they were “misinformed” by the military, Mattis has to go. Either way, Mattis has to go.
You can’t have a Secretary of Defense lying to the Commander in Chief. And you can’t have one that loses track of an ‘armada’ at a time like this. On grounds of either deceit or incompetence, Gen. “Mad dog” Mattis has to be fired.
If you love the military and hate what I am writing that’s fine but consider this: what are we supposed to believe from Mattis in the future after this? Nothing. You would be a fool to trust anything he says in the future and what kind of military can we have under those circumstances? What kind of support can they expect in the future if we already know the man at the top will lie with impunity about anything?
Key to all of this is the fact that they know the North Koreans knew all along where that carrier group was. The only people who didn’t know.. were us… the American taxpayers who fund all of this. We were the target of this informational warfare and quite frankly, the Pentagon targeting U.S. citizens with info wars is illegal. And if it isn’t, if we’ve gone so fascist that it’s no longer a crime to make us the targets of their aggression, then we are in deeper trouble than most understand at this point.
Mattis has to go and he has to go now.

“Faced with 4 major stories that threatened the interests of the Masters of the Universe, the 5 Eyes of the Deep State unleashed the power of their fake news mill to distract the unwashed masses…
… we were told at first that our Deep State intelligence agencies (who are constantly getting everything wrong) had it on good “intelligence” that craAAAaaaAAzy Kim Jung Un was going to stage another nuclear weapons test underground somewhere in the country on Saturday..
… (we were told) “There has been a FAILED North Korean missile test!!!”..
… (but) (t)he (failed) missile launch never happened. The intelligence community didn’t get any information about a pending nuclear weapons test either.
It was all FAKE NEWS and it was indeed the Mother Of All Fake News (MOAFN?)
I concluded that none of it happened. The whole thing was a manufactured distraction to keep the press from covering 4 very troubling stories that had developed recently:
We were also told newly declared “presidential” Trump (so noted because he bombed a country on the say-so of “ISIS” and al Qaeda propagandists) had sent a carrier group to North Korea to serve as a deterrent for the nuclear test that was never going to happen. Everyone in the complicit media started frothing at the mouth over the possibility of being a “war-time reporter” as they endless babbled on about how impressive this show of force from Trump was. Though Tillerson played it down, Trump railed on and on about it and the submarines traveling with the group.
“On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the deployment was routine. Speaking to reporters in Moscow, he said there was “no particular objective” to its current course, adding that he “would not read too much” into its recent deployment to the waters near the Korean Peninsula” CNN
That was a lie as well. A complete and total fabrication. The carrier group attached to the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, was photographed off the coast of Indonesia doing drills with the Australian navy. Not only was it not on it’s way… it was never intending to go there. The whole thing was another lie.
A week ago, the White House declared that ordering an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan would send a powerful deterrent signal to North Korea and give President Trump more options in responding to the North’s provocative behavior. “We’re sending an armada,” Mr. Trump said to Fox News that afternoon.
The problem was that the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the three other warships in its strike force were that very moment sailing in the opposite direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula. New York Times
The State Department, the President and the Carrier Command center… they all played along with the lie letting AMERICANS BELIEVE WE WERE AT DEFCON 1 WITH NORTH KOREA while the whole time the carrier strike group was playing games in the Indian Ocean.
While President Trump said last week he had sent an “armada” as a warning to Kim Jong-Un’s government, the carrier USS Carl Vinson and strike force warships were headed instead to the Indian Ocean for joint exercises with the Australian Navy, more than 3,000 miles from Korean Peninsula. USA Today
And if you think they did that to scare North Korea into acting right… you’re not thinking.
North Korea knows exactly where our carrier groups are. They have all sorts of ways to monitor such things as every nation does, well every nation we don’t invade for “humanitarian reasons’ that is.
The North Koreans were NOT THE TARGET OF THAT LIE… you and I were.
Even if they try to say it was a miscommunication, the Pentagon, the White House and everyone associated with them certainly pick up papers every now and again and they watch the news from time to time. You would think they would notice a story about their “armada” being sent to North Korea and wanted to correct the DISINFORMATION.
But they didn’t. They didn’t say jack until someone noticed photos of the damn things floating around 3,500 miles away from where it was supposed to be.
TOTAL… FUCKING… FAKE… NEWS… FROM… THE… WHITE HOUSE AND PENTAGON.
Not only that, but Barbara Star, CNN’s glorified Pentagon reporter was saying it was over there all this time. You think she didn’t know? You think the complicit media didn’t know? Of course they knew.
It was a total fabrication. A distraction from the big stories that threatened various “national interests” most of them associated with the Deep State.
How fucked up is that? I wonder what the family members of those service men and women on those ships think about that? Unbelievable.

In the latest episode of Last Week Tonight with “humor shill” John Oliver, John gave a run down of the choices facing the French people in their upcoming presidential election. During his tired, rote, completely generic “comedy” routine, John made fun of every candidate that remained in the contest with the notable exception of one: pure neoliberal Rothchild banker, Emmanuel Macron.
While he reserved most of his attacks for far-right Marine Le Pen, he did take the time to do his best to make outsider and true socialist Jean-Luc Melenchon look like a whacked out hippie space cadet who couldn’t possibly win… when in fact, Melenchon, if you look at his poll numbers, looks like he stands the best chance to beat Le Pen.
While everyone else’s numbers are falling or remain stagnant, Melenchon’s are on the rise dramatically. Of course Oliver doesn’t mention that fact he just does his best to make sure his viewers don’t think Jean-Luc has a chance in hell to beat Le Pen as he suggests they make sure to get out and vote for the globalist Rothschild banker.
But what else do you expect from the fake left? They would much rather see a full on far-right neocon win the election than a socialist. I mean, when you think about it.. this is the exact same choice we had right?
Emmanuel Macron is a “third way” centrist in the model of Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. “Third way” is what neoliberals decided to call themselves once people figured out “neoliberal” meant pure unadulterated Business First fascism. Macron fully supports Israel in all their endeavors, opposes the BDS movement and wont say whether or not Palestine even exists.
Macron fully supports an “open door” policy when it comes to immigration and wants more illegals to flood into France in order to help Big Business drive down the wages and standards of living in the country.
He worked in a branch of the French government for a couple years that worked closely with the IMF and World Bank before buying his way out of his government contract so he could go work as an investment banker for Rothschild & Cie Banque.
He’s a neoliberal centrist vulture capitalist from the Rothschild Group who wants to flood the country with cheap labor for his business friends and he loves the free markets, the TTIP, Israel and all things the “third way” neoliberals love..
… and the only bad thing John Oliver had too say about him was his wife is 24 years older than he is.
On the other hand…
Melenchon wants to get France away from the World Bank.
He wants to end France’s support for the regime change operation in Syria.
He wants France to become a partner of ALBA.
He wants to withdraw from NATO.
Jean-Luc Melenchon’s father was a mailman and his mother a teacher. He got his degree and followed in her footsteps and worked as a teacher before becoming a politician. He was in the left part of the Socialist Party before it became infused with fake-left “third way” centrists like the Rothschild banker he’s running against.
During the presidency of François Hollande, Mélenchon became one of the most critical voices in the left against his centrist free-market policy. He denounced a betrayal to the culture and ideas of the French Left…
Mélenchon is an outspoken critic of the European Union (EU), which he claims has been corrupted through neoliberalism. During his 2012 campaign, Mélenchon positioned himself against the trend towards economic globalisation, which he denounced as disproportionately profiting the financial industry and “high income earners” at the expense of the poor. He insisted international organisations such as the EU threatened to “strangle the voice of the people”.
As you can see, John Oliver is right to imply that this guy a whack-job. He seems to think there is a class war going on and the poor people are losing because folks like John Oliver are paid very well to make sure working folks never really understand there is a class war going on.
I don’t know how this is going to work out. I would hope that a real socialist be elected in France and the globalist bastards don’t buy him off or frame in like they did that other socialist before the election that installed the fake-left Hollande. I would hope France pulls out of the World Bank and NATO and the EU and joins ALBA and leads the charge to bring Europe out of the EU/neoliberal days and they can do so in a way that doesn’t hand over everything to the far-right nut-job fake populists like the one we got instead or our very own fake socialist.
Of course, I have to wonder if those stay-behind Gladio cells are cleaned out because if they haven’t been, it’ll be a rough time for socialist France after the election.
Cus you know fascists don’t like to lose.

This is your media and it’s disgusting… and the next target is being mapped out in Turkey as we speak.
Some rich, soulless sycophants sitting around on a couch dressed in thousand dollar suits and dresses saying “this is what freedom looks like” as a bomb explodes over a bunch of people who don’t want us occupying their country anymore.
Freedom for the rich assholes maybe. Not your freedom. Not that of the people in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Egypt or anywhere else our CIA drones are busy taking out those who oppose our “national interests”
This is your media and Jimmy is right. It’s disgusting.
I have always said neoliberalism is a sickness. Its a cancer that is eating away at the core of our nation, at our very souls. This video makes that point crystal clear.

UPDATE: Di$info Tarpley urged people to vote “NO” prior to the referendum. Now he makes comparisons between Ergodan and Hitler. Always doing the service of his masters.
I like Moon of Alabama blog. At least I used to.
Today, there are a ton of writers, bloggers, commenters and various influence peddlers running around screeching about the “stolen referendum” in Turkey. Apparently the Turkish people “voted the wrong way” and places like the Guardian, the BBC and the Washington Post are trafficking in election fraud porn on behalf of the globalists who are worried a changed Turkey is much less likely to be forced into the EU like Ukraine was… after Obama’s little neo-Nazi color revolution over there. The pro-Kurd People’s Democratic Party (HDP) and the main opposition to Erdogan led the “NO” vote movement though it’s interesting to point out, a number of Turkish Kurds voted “YES” in areas mainly populated by them.
The HDP says a “no” vote is “yes” to peace and that is important because it is well known they are closely linked to the PKK, the Kurdish separatist movement that has been waging a war of terror against Turkey for a number of years.
Interestingly, it would appear a majority of Turkish Kurds voted against that rhetoric and for the reforms, which might mean they don’t particularly support the idea of becoming part of Greater Kurdistan or Barzani Kurdistan… whatever the creators of the New Middle East want to call it. And who can blame them. Life in Barzanistan in Iraq is a pure neoliberal hell with tons of American businesses doing great, Israelis running around everywhere you look and the people suffering just like they did after Bush II blew up Iraq and installed the neoliberal technocrats to make a democracy out of it.
“Sunday’s results is clear proof that Turkish citizens of Kurdish origin supported the proposed changes, showing they are not enemies to Ankara as the pro-PKK HDP insistently has lied about” Daily Sabah
I’m not going to delve too deeply into the staged videos and bullshit about the stolen election just yet. We’ve seen it all before in Russia with Killary calling the shots and in Iran when their color revolution failed to take shape. We see it all the time when the people “vote the wrong way” so much so, it’s pretty cookie cutter if you ask me.
I am almost shocked though by all the alternative media outlets jumping on the “stolen referendum” bandwagon. One of the most disappointing is Moon of Alabama.
Now as I and Penny have said for a long time… the next step in the Greater Kurdistan project is the removal of Erdogan because he is standing in the way of them busting off a piece of Turkey to give to the Kurds. Something apparently even Turkish Kurds don’t want too see happen.
Over at MoA he’s busy telling his folks that Erdogan rigged the referendum, that it would make him dictator or sultan or something and that it will ensure the “Islamist” nature of the government. All stuff you can probably see at Rita Katz’ blog or Di$info Jone$
But he goes one step further in his evaluation of the importance of this event:
“Turkey is no longer a democracy. It is now a one man dictatorship with an expansive and distinct Islamist agenda. To change that will require the removal of Erdogan through some act of force.” Moon of Alabama
End of democracy. Dictatorship. Islamist agenda. He’s got all the talking points in there… all in one damn line.
But he also goes one step further and calls for the violent regime change of Erdogan… by force.
All because the Turks “voted the wrong way”
Does that seem a little drastic to anyone else? Bloody regime change because a referendum will change 18 parts of Turkey’s constitution? Is it me or is that a little extreme?
Besides… who the fuck are we to determine what kind of government the Turkish people have to represent them?
A regime change because folks voted the “wrong way” and a call for it by MoA. Sad isn’t it?
One of the first comments on this thread reads as follows:
After Turkey’s demise, give Constantinople, Smyrna, Trebizond, all of Cyprus, et al back to Greece and create a Kurdish homeland. Let the Turks “stew” in their own juices.

Yep. Guess Penny and I were right huh?
by Scott Creighton
Faced with 4 major stories that threatened the interests of the Masters of the Universe, the 5 Eyes of the Deep State unleashed the power of their fake news mill to distract the unwashed masses.
What are the four major stories I am referring to? Have we forgotten already? Pay careful attention and you might notice a common denominator.
The MOAB pop-gun worked for a little while like fireworks distract zombies… for a moment. But it didn’t have any staying power. Something else had to be done to keep attention from those developments else they might tend to put various “national interests” in jeopardy. So they needed something big. Something really big… like… uh… like… oh, I don’t know…WAR!!!!!
Yes, we were told at first that our Deep State intelligence agencies (who are constantly getting everything wrong) had it on good “intelligence” that craAAAaaaAAzy Kim Jung Un was going to stage another nuclear weapons test underground somewhere in the country on Saturday because, it’s the national day of celebration for his grandfather or some other such nonsense.
We were told that Trump and his Sainted Generals sent an “armada” over to South Korea to be there to stop the test… if they got wind there would be a test… stop it BEFORE it took place by military force.
This news consumed nearly every minute of the 5 Eyes Media (H/T Penny) for the entire weekend.
And when nothing happened, suddenly the South Korean Sainted Generals (who’s pockets are stuffed with CIA/State Department/Deep State cash) reported:“There has been a FAILED North Korean missile test!!!”
And THAT story consumed the rest of the news cycles up until this morning.
Let me explain something to you: there was no missile test, failed or otherwise.
They needed a hook, a headline, something that hinted at their war story from Saturday and kept the focus on North Korea after a WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING HAPPENED this past weekend.
So WHY was it a FAILED missile test you ask?
Because a “failed” missile test means it didn’t attain an altitude high enough to be picked up on radar so those Chinese couldn’t simply release their radar coverage recordings and say “see? no missile launch”
Get it? That’s why their FAKE NEWS story had to include a “failed” missile launch.
The missile launch never happened. The intelligence community didn’t get any information about a pending nuclear weapons test either.
It was all FAKE NEWS and it was indeed the Mother Of All Fake News (MOAFN?)
Had any one of those stories been the focus this weekend things could have gotten out of hand for the Deep State pretty quickly because each and every one of them tracks back to the Deep State and serves as a reminder of a warning we once received:
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together”
The entire North Korea crisis was a manufactured panic over absolutely nothing. It was complete and total FAKE NEWS crafted by the Deep State and parroted willingly by the 5 Eyes Media for one purpose only… distraction.
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”
“Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry…”

Looks like the Turkish people voted the wrong way. And we all know how much the Masters of the Universe hate it when people “vote the wrong way”. Expect the 5 Eyed monster to begin full scale “democratization” in the days to come.
Not a year removed from the failed U.S.-backed coup in Turkey (July 15-16, 2016) the country held a referendum that could help prevent another one in the future. The changes in the political structure of the country look to remake their parliamentary system into one more like ours with an executive presidency and parliament serving as something similar to our congress.
The vote was close but the “YES” crowd won and Turkey will begin the transition to a new form of democracy starting in 2019.
Ironically, according to the 5 Eyes Press, this democratic process means the end of democracy in Turkey (see here, here, here, here and here) and the beginning of them having the same system we have. Hmmm.
Immediately the opposition, the Kurds and the NGOs cried “FOUL!” as the globalists lament the fact that this referendum probably means Turkey will never join the E.U. (remember: when Ukraine decided not to join the E.U. President Peace Prize unleashed his Killary dog who set loose the soft-power of the neo-Nazi movement in the country and they staged a color revolution)
Keep in mind, the opposition is backed by pro-Western monied interests as are the Kurds and the NGO’s who have been funneling aid and terrorists over the border into Syria on behalf of the State Department and the CIA. Those same NGOs have come under fire recently and are worried they are about to be kicked out of the country.
Recently there has been some news about that “democratic” coup we tried to pull off in Turkey almost a year ago. The developments are interesting too say the least.
“Some followers of Muslim leader and businessman Fethullah Gulen were involved in last summer’s failed coup in Turkey, a UK Parliament report says, adding that there is no evidence to suggest the Gulen Movement as a whole was behind the plot.” al Jazeera
So there were Gulenists involved in the coup. What a shock. At the time the MSM refused to believe any such thing and complicit, phony alternative media types floated the possibility that it was Erdogan and the dreaded “RUSSIA!” that did it. But, as time moved on, Gulenists were found in the mix of the plotters.
I wonder who else had a hand in “democracy promotion” last year in Turkey?
“A Turkish prosecutor has opened an investigation into 17 people accused of fomenting last year’s failed coup, including many prominent American officials, academics and politicians, state news media reported on Saturday.
Among those placed under investigation by the chief prosecutor in Istanbul are John O. Brennan, the former C.I.A. chief; Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York; Preet Bharara, the former United States attorney for the Southern District of New York; and David Cohen, who at the time of the coup was the deputy director of the C.I.A., according to the Anadolu Agency, a state-run news wire.” New York Times
Imagine that. The CIA implicated in a coup to install a West-friendly businessman.
Interestingly, Schumer was exposed in this for taking millions from Gulen to serve his interests in New York and across the globe. Of course we all know Chuck is the new leader of the unDemocratic Party in our “democratic” system over here.
The 5 Eyes Media (H/T Penny) are steadily feeding their brain-dead viewers a full buffet of conspiracy theories today regarding the illegitimacy of yesterday’s referendum results. A couple of them mention the 3 deaths that occurred during the voting process without letting you know it was the Kurds who killed people trying to prevent the referendum from taking place. They do that because their want their viewers to assume it was Erdogan cracking down on “NO” voters.
Fake news is often a subtle omission of one key fact in a story. Happens all the time with the 5 Eyes Press.
The glorious Kurds are the main opposition to the change in the constitution because they know it will make it harder for them to get help from the U.S. to bust off a piece of Turkey for their Greater Kurdistan project.
The referendum vote seals the deal for the Masters of the Universe. They can’t have Turkey exercising anything like self determination right now so it seems the “birth pangs of a New Middle East” haven’t yet subsided within that country.
I expect another full scale color revolution ala Ukraine in the next few weeks starting up in Turkey. There are pipelines and Greater Kurdistan to think about.
