Jim W. Dean – The G20 executive members came out swinging, but did not wait until the meeting began. Major “perception management” moves were put into motion, including full-spectrum government planning and media-seeding during the lead-up to the meeting.
Jim W. Dean – It took us about two seconds to understand that the main reason Trump shoe-horned his family into top “advisor” slots as so they could enjoy influence-peddling from the top with some presidential immunity screening.
Jim W. Dean – We smelled a hyped story right away on this alleged ICBM test launch. North Korea had obvious reasons to puff up its deterrent capability, but the US going along with it was just another case of lying to the American people to hype a threat.
Jim W. Dean – I must admit I was teased a bit with yesterday’s reporting that Israel was on board the south Syria ceasefire. It made practical sense in that, if the others complied and Israel continued on with its usual “we will attack anywhere, any time, for any reason we choose” foreign policy, it would make them look like fools.
Jim W. Dean – The irony in all of this ancient ownership hoopla is that it has all been turned upside down with Dr. Eran El-Haik’s genetic research, which showed that for Ashkenazi Jews especially, they don’t have any more “semitic DNA” that many of us gringos in America
Moscow welcomes US readiness to cooperate on Syria, but awaits ‘no-fly zones’ clarification – Lavrov
Jim W. Dean – This Tillerson statement is a hoot, that Russia has a “special responsibility” to aid the peace process in Syria, when he knows if the Russians had not come in, the jihadis would have won, and we would have a mess 50 times bigger than Libya.
Jim W. Dean – A train load of major infrastructure and development deals are flowing into Iran after many months of final negotiations and working out ways of protecting them from the US Treasury Commissars.
Jim W. Dean – The gamesmanship continues, with Trump making demands of N. Korea but ignoring what the NKs want. If talks could get started in Syria, after all the carnage that has gone on there in the past five years, why not N. Korea?
Jim W. Dean – I took a gamble here with RT, with my strong emphasis on the theatrical side of the US-China island spat, and even the N. Korea “threat” itself. But we have all been here before, with the puffed-up threat baloney.
Jim W. Dean – The most recent “planned” Syrian chemical weapons attack scam was so obvious, so openly organized, as to show that the Deep State actors have no concern whatsoever about public reaction or any political blowback.
Jim W. Dean – For all of the main Liberal issues that need funding, the only real source for it is in military cutbacks, which can only be accomplish via major political pressure on those countries with big military budgets to work out reductions via negotiations.
Jim W. Dean – We had news today that the SDF has agreed to let the US coalition use the Tabqa airport as a base. I am sure Damascus was not consulted, despite the Syrian defenders captured there by ISIS all having been executed.
Jim W. Dean – The North Korean story is beginning to show signs of the classic exploited event. Trump is hyping the threat about a nuclear missile strike on the US, which is ludicrous.
Jim W. Dean – The strategic concern now is whether the US coalition will be able to prevent Russia, Syria, Iraq and Iran from forming a cross border anti-terrorist, mini-NATO of their own, so the days of picking countries off one at a time will not include them.
Jim W. Dean – Personally I don’t consider Ukraine to even be a real country, simply because it imports foreigners and gives them instant citizenship to fill major government positions. Only a cartoon-comic book country would do such a thing.
Jim W. Dean – We now have on our hands THE celebrity fake president of all time, in that there may not really be anything real about him, as that would be more unpleasant than he could endure. It took not only gall to do this Time cover con, but a deep contempt for the public.
Jim W. Dean – I used the Syrian plane shootdown to focus much needed attention on the US using the SDF Kurds to take much of the traditional Arab areas of Syria, especially where there were economic resources, to potentially become part of their new state.
Jim W. Dean – Just when I think the US could not sink any lower in its geopolitical demagoguery, I get blindside by this incredible White House statement about the Assad government preparing a new chemical attack.
Jim W. Dean – We salute the Saudi counter-Intel people and police for nipping this attack in the bud with minimal damage versus what would have happened if it had proceeded against pilgrims or the Grand Mosque.
Jim W. Dean – Bibi will enjoy burning down the next four to eight years in a “search for peace” with Trump fronting the US taxpayer money, all of it borrowed, flowing into Zionist coffers. Bibi does love Trump for that, but that is all.
Jim W. Dean – Turkey, which has been backing terrorist groups in Syria and was the major looter of Syrian wealth during the ISIS upheaval, with partners like the Saudis, US, Qatar, Israel and the UAE, now steps forward as the defender of national sovereignty and international law.
Jim W. Dean – As more moral people in the West step forward to engage Crimea, the contrast with the geopolitical terrorists will become more and more obvious to where they will want to give up the ghost and accept the reality of Crimea.
Jim W. Dean – The EU folks seem to have finally figured it out. If US sanctions can be dished out against Russian interests for any benefit the US wants to secure, then why not use them against others for the same reason?
Jim W. Dean – The dueling continues over Syria, where the US position of not just responding to actual attacks on US and its proxy forces, but to “threats” alone, has finally elicited a military response from Russia – better late than never.
Jim W. Dean – This story was a big surprise. I cannot think of an act that would put a party involved in a Saudi coup in a worse position than to have Israelis intervene militarily on one side.
Jim W. Dean – I always get a big kick out of the democracy-loving West (defined by what it claims to be) generally opposing the two most popular leaders in the world. Assad was re-elected by 88% with a 74.4% turn out, and Putin is now polling north of 80%.
Jim W. Dean – The “work averse” Saudis, who view all work as a slave’s occupation, are only focused on control over the top positions where they can loot more of the country’s wealth than other members of the Royal Family. A typical government employee will work an hour a day, leaving the real work to the imported slave working class.
All the ISIS people who were celebrating the big dual terror attacks on Iran just got introduced to the new arithmetic, that Iran can reach out and touch them, and knows where they are.
Jim W. Dean – Uri obviously does not read VT or he would know our position that the international criminal network prefers to work with right wing governments as their profits are higher. But the gangsters can deal with liberals, if they have to.
Jim W. Dean – ISIS is being pushed out of Raqqa, even allowed to escape to continue fighting the Syrian Army, while the US becomes the new landlord of the evacuated areas via its Kurdish proxies for whom Washington can supply, provide offensive artillery and air cover right in the open.
