U.S. Offers $10M Reward Against Russian Election Interference | Ukraine Today .org

https://ukrainetoday.org/2020/08/06/u-s-offers-10m-reward-against-russian-election-interference/

The reward marks one of the most public signs that members of President Donald Trump’s administration are taking election meddling seriously, despite anger by Trump himself over findings that Russia has assisted him.

Pompeo pointed to efforts by “Russia and other malign actors” as he announced the effort to stop election interference.

Unsealed Ghislaine Maxwell Court Docs Reveal Conspiracy Theory Turned Fact, by Jon Hall | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

https://straightlinelogic.com/2020/08/04/unsealed-ghislaine-maxwell-court-docs-reveal-conspiracy-theory-turned-fact-by-jon-hall/

SLL doesn’t think Ghislaine Maxwell will be alive at the end of this year. From Jon Hall at fmshooter.com:

Ghislaine Maxwell, a long-time associate and one-time girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein was arrested by the FBI at the beginning of July. Maxwell has henceforth been accused of being the ringleader of his sex trafficking operations which saw girls as young as 14 into Epstein’s mansion. Recently released documents filed in a 2015 civil lawsuit that Maxwell has been fighting with the courts to keep away from the public eye have unearthed some heavy revelations concerning Ghislaine Maxwell and several other different people.

Firstly, the documents exposed that Ghislaine Maxwell lied when she claimed she hadn’t been in contact with Epstein for “over a decade” prior to his death. In 2015, the e-mail address “GMaxl@ellmax.corn” writes to Epstein, saying:

I would appreciate it if shelley would come out and say she was your g’friend – I think she was from end 99 to 2002.

The next day, Epstein responded to Maxwell from the e-mail address “JeeVacation@Gmail”, telling her “You have done nothing wrong and i woudl (sic) urge you to start acting like it. go outside, head high, not as an esacping (sic) convict. go to parties. deal with it.” Maxwell’s lawyers claimed in a July court filing that she hadn’t been in contact with Epstein for over a decade before his death in 2019. Her lawyers made this claim while arguing in defense of Ghislaine being released on $5 million bond whilst awaiting trial.

Foreign Correspondent: Trump’s Desperate, Last-Ditch Effort to Hike Tensions with Iran | The Official Website of Reese Erlich

This might be the final stretch for his failed policy of maximum pressure.

By Reese Erlich

Foreign Correspondent: Trump’s Desperate, Last-Ditch Effort to Hike Tensions with Iran

During the past month, Iran has suffered a half-dozen explosions and fires at military and civilian sites. A bomb blew up near the Parchin missile base outside Tehran, Iran’s capital. Fires broke out at an electric power station and aboard seven ships in a southern port city.

Iranian government authorities say some of the incidents were accidents. But the most serious, it appears, was an act of sabotage.

On July 2, a blast ripped through the main assembly hall at Natanz, a facility that produces centrifuge parts essential for enriching uranium for Iran’s nuclear power program.

No one officially took credit for the sabotage, but The New York Times reported that a “Middle East intelligence” source admitted that Israel was behind the bombing. An Israeli newspaper later identified the source as Yossi Cohen, head of the Mossad intelligence agency.

Analysts say such a brazen attack, which constitutes an act of war, would need the approval of officials in Washington, D.C.

“If the US did not participate in the attack directly, at the very least it gave Israel its consent,” Muhammad Sahimi, a professor at the University of Southern California and Iran expert, says in an interview.

Washington and Tel Aviv think such attacks, along with the unilateral US sanctions, are a low-risk means of pushing back on Iran. They are an escalation of Washington’s “maximum pressure” campaign—which has notably failed and will likely be abandoned after the US presidential election.

“There’s a sense that there’s a bit of desperation right now” in both capitals, says Trita Parsi, executive vice president and co-founder of the Quincy Institute, an anti-interventionist think tank in Washington, D.C. He likens the attempts to those of medieval archers fighting a losing battle: “Empty your quiver . . . shoot all your arrows.”

October surprise?

Some analysts speculate that the Trump Administration is seeking to provoke Iran into military retaliation. Trump could then launch a war, rally support at home, and win the election. It’s a classic “October Surprise” or even a “Wag the Dog” scenario.

But Foad Izadi does not agree with that analysis.

“Iran is not Iraq,” Izadi, an assistant professor of American studies at the University of Tehran, tells me by phone from Tehran. “Any overt war runs the danger of serious US casualties. He should know, after being President for almost four years, attacking Iran has consequences.”

Izadi does not think that “starting a new war with Iran a few months before the election” is in Trump’s interest. “Even a limited war is not useful for him.”

But that doesn’t preclude other forms of US aggression.

On July 23, a US fighter jet flew close to an Iranian civilian airliner on a routine flight from Tehran, as it crossed Syria on its way to Beirut, Lebanon. The US military claimed to be conducting a “visual inspection” of the plane in order to “ensure the safety of coalition personnel at At Tanf garrison,” says Captain Bill Urban, spokesperson for US Central Command.

Urban claimed the F-15 fighter jet kept 1,000 yards away from the airliner. But a video shot by passengers shows a jet flying much closer. The proximity of the F-15 forced the Iranian pilot to drop 14,000 feet in four minutes, injuring several passengers.

According to Izadi, the US military has no business “inspecting” a civilian airliner flying in a normal civilian air corridor over Syria. In fact, he says, the United States “has no right to be in Syria at all.”

The Trump Administration keeps several hundred troops in Syria in defiance of the Syrian government and without authorization from the United Nations or any other international body.

Iranians are particularly sensitive about US interactions with civilian planes. In 1988, the US Navy shot down an Iranian airliner, killing all 290 passengers and crew. After initially providing false information about where and how fast the plane was flying, Washington admitted to shooting down the airliner and paid compensation to the victims’ families.

“These things unify the Iranian people,” Izadi says. “Whether they like the government or not, Iranians don’t want to be on a plane that will be shot down.”

Iranian response

To date, the Iranian government has not overtly responded to the US provocations. It seems more likely that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is waiting for the US election on November 3, which could result in the election of Joe Biden.

“Iranians are holding their fire, playing the long game,” Parsi says. “They fear it may be a trap to give Trump an excuse to go farther.”

Iran’s conservative hardliners, meanwhile, denounce Rouhani as vacillating in the face of a US and Israeli onslaught. But Parsi says these hardliners “are playing a political game. They understand the logic of not doing anything for now, but that doesn’t prevent them from calling Rouhani weak.”

Sahimi, a close observer of Iranian politics, agrees that “there is a lot of ‘hot’ rhetoric against President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif by the hardliners. But I do not expect any practical action in the near future.”

Depending on what policy the United States adopts after the elections, Sahimi expects “the response to come at a later time and in a manner and at locations where neither Israel nor the US would expect.”

Biden has pledged, if elected, to reverse course on Iran. Izadi believes a Biden Administration would change the Trump policy of maximum pressure. “Whether doing it through rejoining the nuclear agreement or coming up with some other policies, we have to wait and see,” he says.

Parsi, who is familiar with the views of Biden’s Iran advisors, says the new administration would likely call for “compliance for compliance.”

“Biden could lift sanctions by executive order without rejoining the nuclear accord,” he says. “That’s a necessary step, but not sufficient.” The new administration will also have to work with Congress and lay the groundwork for restoring the nuclear accord.

Despite the current crisis, Izadi says, “I’m optimistic. Trump’s policies are not working. The US will have to change, and the change will be for the best.”

Russia Presents Evidence Against US, UK and Israel As Being the Actual 9/11 Terrorist | © blogfactory

https://blogfactory.co.uk/2017/07/31/russia-presents-evidence-against-us-uk-and-israel-as-being-the-actual-911-terrorist/

The ‘official’ 9/11 Commission Report stands as the most fabricated document ever produced by US tax dollars. Not only did the investigation avoid every serious inquiry about how two steel frame building came down after being dustified in NYC, it also subverted every initiative to ferret out the truth.

That’s all about to change.

It appears that Russia has been conducting systematic data dumps on 9/11, the release of which represents more factual information on the attacks than any US Government source.

In the wake of the Anglo-American coup d’état conducted by the CIA and MI6 in Kiev, it appears that Russia has no more patience for Western interference. Especially when nations are destabilized on Russia’s borders do the stakes in this highly consequential geopolitical chess match go up.

Since Vladimir Putin has no intention of starting World War 3, he can only respond to US-EU meddling by using asymmetric warfare on the internet.

The U.S. Empire Is Ending? A Turning Point in World History – Global Research

https://www.globalresearch.ca/us-empire-ending/5719551

On July 26th, Germany’s Die Welt (The World) Sunday newspaper headlined “USA threatens German Nord Stream 2 contractors”
and reported that, “The construction of the Russian Nord Stream 2
pipeline has long been a thorn in the US’s side. Now they are increasing
the pressure on German and European companies involved in the project —
and announce sanctions. German politicians are outraged.”

The U.S. regime is
demanding that Germany cut pipelined gas from Russia and replace it with
far costlier gas from U.S. fracking companies, which are facing hard
economic times and are desperate to increase their exports. The
news-report said:

The
United States had previously legally enforced the implementing
provisions of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act
(CAATSA) [which started] on July 15. The companies and their banks are
threatened if they continue to participate in the pipeline’s
construction. The sanctions include complete exclusion from the US
market and entry bans for employees. At a press conference in
Washington, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo summarized the aim of the
measure for the companies concerned as follows: “Get out now or bear the
consequences.” …

When
asked by WELT AM SONNTAG, the German energy company Uniper “regretted
that with the announced revision of the CAATSA guidelines, the US is
still trying to undermine an important infrastructure project that we
believe is important for Europe’s energy security.” “A clear
encroachment on European sovereignty”. …

For
the parliamentary director of the CDU/CSU group in the European
Parliament, Markus Pieper (CDU), the American threat of sanctions is “a
clear violation of everything we understand by commercial law”. Pieper
criticized the recent expansion of the CAATSA sanctions law of 2017
“German companies are now on par with Iran”. “The fun is slowly coming
to an end.” Germany and Europe “urgently need to develop a
counter-strategy”.

For the very first time,
the U.S. regime is so desperate to crush Russia, as to endanger
America’s continued alliance with Europe and especially with Germany.

This is unprecedented,
and must be marked as a turning-point in post-World-War-II history,
because if the U.S. empire ends up losing Germany, then it will cause
the end of America’s anti-Russia military alliance, NATO, and maybe even
the end of America’s anti-Russia diplomatic and economic alliance, the
EU.


(The Cold War was against Russia, not actually against communism.)

On June 30th, Germany’s Handelsblatt newspaper had bannered “Former Chancellor Schröder: USA Ending Transatlantic Partnership” (“Altkanzler Schröder: USA kündigen transatlantische Partnerschaft auf”)
and reported that “Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has
condemned possible new US sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 natural
gas pipeline as ‘deliberate termination of the transatlantic
partnership’.” Schröder was from Germany’s mainstream non-conservative
Party, the Social Democrats. But now Germany’s mainstream — and ruling —
conservative Party, the CDU/CSU,
is rejecting the U.S. regime for its imposing “a clear violation of
everything we understand by commercial law,” and German industry is more
bluntly asserting the broader reality, that the U.S. regime’s demand is
“a clear encroachment on European sovereignty.”

That last phrase
includes “a clear encroachment on German sovereignty” but goes even
further because it presumes (correctly) that to violate Germany’s
sovereignty is simultaneously
to violate Europe’s sovereignty, because Germany is part of Europe. The
statement is, by its underlying truthful assumption, an assertion that
today’s Germany is a state in the nation of Europe,
and that THEREFORE any violation of German sovereignty is a violation
also of European sovereignty. That speaker captured the full
significance of what is actually at stake here.

Reluctantly, Germany’s conservative mainstream Party (which happens to be the Party that was in power when the
U.S. regime ordered Germany in 1991 that the Cold War against communism
would secretly continue as being a war against Russia
) finds
itself forced finally by German public opinion to join Germany’s
non-conservative mainstream Party (Schröder’s Social Democrats), in
rejecting the demand by the U.S. imperial regime — its demand to
terminate participation in the new pipeline to bring into the EU gas
from Russia.

If the Trump
administration of the U.S. regime will continue, instead of abandon, its
demand that Europe replace Russian gas by American gas (and other
non-Russian gas), then The Atlantic Alliance (Europe’s participation in
America’s permanent war against Russia and against any Government — such
as Iran — that is on friendly terms with Russia) will consequently end.

However, if the Trump
Administration will abandon its demand, then the U.S. President will
find himself at war against his own country’s legislative branch,
because both houses of it, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House, voted
over 90% for this demand, and Trump personally signed it into law.
Therefore, in order for him to abandon the demand now would be for him
to violate a U.S. law, which expresses the virtually unanimous will of
the U.S. aristocracy (the billionnaires who funded the careers of those
members of Congress). He would be like a King who has become abandoned
by his own aristocracy. No monarch can stay in power who violates the
will of his own aristocracy. This would virtually guarantee his
political opponent’s, Joe Biden’s, win in America’s upcoming
Presidential election: Biden would be the almost unanimous choice of
America’s billionaires, both Republican and Democratic Party
billionaires.

Consequently, Trump now
faces a difficult choice: Either he will break up and end The Atlantic
Alliance, or else he will continue it and lose the Presidency to his
domestic opponent, Biden and the Democratic Party. It’s his choice. If
he opts to continue The Atlantic Alliance, he will hand the White House
to his domestic opponent, who is likely to win it in any case. However,
by Trump’s backing down and accepting Germany’s new-found insistence
upon its and the EU’s independence from the U.S. regime, Mr. Biden would
be inheriting an empire that is, and will continue to be, inevitably in
decline. A turning-point in world history has been reached, and there
will be no turning back from it.

Israeli Proxies Profit from U.S. Coronavirus Funding, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/israeli-proxies-profit-from-u-s-coronavirus-funding/

A recent Time magazine article describes what it calls “a familiar lobbying bonanza.” To be sure, the details regarding who got the cash makes for depressing reading, though there is a familiar smell to it in light of the many boondoggled programs to make America “safe” over the past twenty years. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has provided no less than 663,000 loans over $150,000, but much of the money has gone to “billionaires, country clubs, lobbyists, political allies, Wall Street, and big business,” all of which have better access to government than does the small business owner.

Recipients included 600 mostly large equity and asset management firms that were actually ineligible because of their involvement in “investment or speculation.” Cash rich law firms also benefited with more than 45 of top firms receiving at least $210 million in PPP loans while companies owned in whole or part by nine congressmen also received funds. A business partially owned by Paul Pelosi, husband of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, obtained a loan as did a real estate project run by the family of Jared Kushner.

Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell Are Just The Beginning: This Goes Much Deeper — Underground Newswire | ARLIN REPORT……………….walking this path together

https://arlinreport.com/2020/07/13/jeffrey-epstein-ghislaine-maxwell-are-just-the-beginning-this-goes-much-deeper-underground-newswire/

Epstein’s case goes beyond just the dealings involving Maxwell and himself, and the issue of trafficking very young children, and teenaged children, is much more widespread than Epstein. Epstein is being made out to simply be a rich billionaire with connections that allowed him to entice young women into his home to be sexually abused, but we really need to talk about just how widespread this type of abuse is among people who are made out to be idols, like multiple Vatican officials, politicians and celebrities.

Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell Are Just The Beginning: This Goes Much Deeper – Underground Newswire

https://undergroundnewswire.news/2020/07/03/jeffrey-epstein-ghislaine-maxwell-are-just-the-beginning-this-goes-much-deeper/

…There is reason to believe that Epstein’s his job was actually to entice powerful people within politics to have sex with young women and then ultimately entrap them, whether it’s with photographs or hidden cameras or thorugh other methods. For example, in an interview with Zev Shalev, former CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ,
the former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence, Ari Ben-Menashe, claimed not only to have met Jeffrey
Epstein and his alleged madame Ghislaine Maxwell, back in the 1980s, but
that both Epstein and Maxwell were already working with Israeli intelligence during that time period.

Caitlin Johnstone: Liberals are CRAZY IDIOTS – they pretend to be for truth & morals, then worship John McCain & push Russia hoax — RT Op-ed

Caitlin Johnstone: Liberals are CRAZY IDIOTS – they pretend to be for truth & morals, then worship John McCain & push Russia hoax
12 Jul, 2020 12:25 / Updated 11 hours ago

By Caitlin Johnstone, an independent journalist based in Melbourne, Australia. Her website is here and you can follow her on Twitter @caitoz

The virtuous claim by liberals that they stand against injustice and protect the downtrodden is really laid bare for the sham it is whenever they’re questioned about their undue reverence for warmonger John McCain.
It’s a provocation. I freely admit this. But it’s a provocation with a fuse that should not exist, because nobody should object to someone speaking ill of a killer with a body count like McCain’s. And the charge it sets off is just fascinatingly disproportionate to what’s being said.

I mean, check out the hundreds of responses to my latest act of blasphemy, where I said that McCain was a bloodthirsty warmongering psychopath and the world is better off without him. There are liberals on Twitter saying I deserve to die for tweeting this, that there’s a special place in hell for people who say such things, that my parents should have aborted me, that karma is going to get me for this.
They always babble about “karma.” Before I was temporarily banned from Twitter in 2018, after outraged Democrats mass-reported me for comments I’d made about McCain, my Twitter mentions were full of people telling me over and over again that “karma” is going to give me cancer and kill me for saying the world will be better off without a psychopathic facilitator of mass murder.

And I just think that says so much about the way mainstream liberals tend to see the world. “Karma,” in the way Westerners tend to understand the word, would just mean that someone will say a mean thing about me someday, in the same way I said a mean thing about John McCain. That would be an equal and proportionate pushback from karma. Yet that’s not what they’re saying karma will do. They’re saying they believe karma punishing me with death (and, in some cases, hell) would be the appropriate response from the universe for my having uttered sacrilegious words about one of their elite rulers. Because that’s how much more important, valuable and sacred some dead senator is to them than the life of an ordinary person.
Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good Russia-bashing

Liberals are such crazy idiots. They pretend to stand for truth and logic, then spend years promoting the fact-free Trump-Russia collusion narrative. They pretend to stand for social justice, then drop those values the second it becomes politically convenient. They make homophobic jokes about Trump and Putin, call Lindsey Graham “Lady G” for being a closeted gay man, and lecture black political leaders about how black people should think and vote. They pretend to stand for the little guy, then support austerity and war while literally worshipping John McCain.
Just last night on MSNBC, Chris Hayes was talking about Trump’s controversial commuting of Roger Stone’s prison sentence and parroted the completely false and utterly baseless claim that Stone had been a “go-between.”
“Roger Stone was what he looked like: a go-between between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, and then he lied about it, which is what he was convicted for,” Hayes said.
This is completely untrue. The only communications between Stone and WikiLeaks prior to the November 2016 presidential election were WikiLeaks telling Stone to stop falsely claiming he was in contact with and had been getting information from the outlet. Stone told the Trump campaign to expect WikiLeaks to publish damning leaks after it was already public knowledge that this was to be expected.
Everyone involved in the story has denied there was ever any back channel to WikiLeaks, and there is no evidence they were lying. Nothing in Stone’s conviction has anything to do with being “a go-between between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks,” because he wasn’t one.

But Hayes said it like it’s a fact anyway. One of the most popular reporters on the most virulently pro-Democrat network in America told his audience an objectively false thing, will suffer no consequences for doing so, and will probably never even have to issue a correction, because lying about anything even remotely related to Russia is considered normal and acceptable in today’s liberal mainstream media.
Yet this same political faction will lament the “post-truth era” they claim Trump has ushered in.
The great liberal charade
Liberals – or “neoliberals,” “corporate liberals,” “centrists,” or whatever word you think everyone should be using for this ideology that nobody can agree on a label for – are just a fake imitation of the thing that actual leftists are. Leftists actually fight for justice, equality, peace, truth and anti-authoritarianism, while liberals are cheerleading Joe Biden and sociopathic intelligence agencies, and throwing endless inertia on any movement aiming at real change. Leftists are the thing that liberals pretend to be.
And that’s why liberals hate the true left: because leftists are a constant reminder that liberals aren’t what they pretend to be. That they are just conservatives wearing a fake plastic mask of justice and sanity. That their lives are a crude crayon drawing of the values they pretend to espouse, a layer of feel-good narratives and podcasts and Hamilton songs wallpapered over a rapacious omnicidal machine of endless war, ecocide and oppression.
And, of course, that’s not entirely their fault – they’ve been psychologically brutalized into their position by generations of mass-media propaganda. But it’s ultimately everyone’s responsibility to expand their own consciousness so they can be useful to the world. At some point, liberals, you’ve got to wake the hell up.

Assassins of jfk information leak | © blogfactory

Comment by tonytran2015: These stories may or may not be true but they are precious intelligence leads.

https://blogfactory.co.uk/2020/06/13/assassins-of-jfk-information-leak/

‘Honey, it’s like war. The president is a national security threat. If I don’t do it, we’ll be in a nuclear war very soon…matters were taken out of our hands a long time ago.’ – Roscoe White 11/21/63

‘Kennedy has been a pretty good president, but he has to die. He didn’t carry out his own orders. If I don’t carry out my orders, I’ll have to die, too.’-Roscoe White to his pastor, Jack Shaw, 1971

‘I was Mandarin, the man behind the stockade fence who fired two shots. ’ –Roscoe White’s diary

‘The diary said after my father shot the President he handed his 7.65 Mauser to the man standing beside him, hurled over the fence, took the film from the military man, whirled around the fence and went through the parking lot.’ –Ricky White, 1990

Government shills and ‘debunkers’ say that Roscoe White’s tale of shooting JFK, J.D. Tippit and functioning as a member of the JFK witness elimination program has been debunked, but this is not the case, and many facts remain unchallenged. These naïve/dishonest types hope that investigators might be fooled into ‘throwing the baby out with the bathwater’ here in Roscoe White’s case.

In the early 1990’s Sam Giancana’s memoirs were published in abook called Double Cross which named Roscoe White as Tippit’s killer. Some time earlier, a man named Ricky White came upon the scene with his tale of finding out that his deceased father had participated in the JFK assassination. Ricky White told the tale of finding his dead father’s diary and mementos which implicated his father, Roscoe White, in the dead man’s own words and handwriting. Ricky White went on to accuse the FBI of stealing the diary from him while they investigated the matter so that he could not present it to the public.

Sometime later, a dishonest JFK researcher named Joe H. West discovered that Ricky’s mother and Roscoe White’s widow, Geneva White, was in desperate need of money for her medical bills. Evidently, under the advice of Mr. West, Mrs. White concocted a bogus 2nd diary of Roscoe White in the hopes of financial gain. This work was revealed as a hoax shortly thereafter and was used to discredit Ricky White’s factual account of his father’s authentic diary thereafter. Ricky White played no part in the bogus 2nd diary scheme and actually pointed out that its weepy tone and handwriting were much different than the genuine diary of Roscoe White.
