Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Indicates Rejoining Northeast Syria with the Rest of the Country

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Indicates Rejoining Northeast Syria with the Rest of the Country

One on one talks in Helsinki between Presidents Trump and Putin regarding U.S.-Russia cooperation to assist Syrian refugees in returning home are bearing fruit — despite public statements that sound like feet dragging from Secretary of State James Mattis and CENTCOM head Gen. Joseph Votel. Neocon U.S. Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are proposing legislation that would allow the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to determine if fresh ‘election meddling’ occurs in November 2018 and thereby usurp the President’s chief executive authority to impose more sanctions on Russia.

Nonetheless, on Tuesday Secretary of State and former CIA director Mike Pompeo said the U.S. would support a peace settlement that includes the northeast of the country where American troops are based (without Damascus permission) after the defeat of ISIS. This is to some extent belated recognition of the reality that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Kurds, recognizing the Americans won’t stay for years and fearful of future Turkish aggression against their lands without Syrian Arab Army (and indirectly, Russian) protection, are in negotiations to reconcile with the Syrian government. With the rebels rapid collapse in the southwest, the SAA’s next battle is likely to be for jihadist dominated Idlib. — JWS

De-dollarization reaches Europe as France, Germany, and UK to defy U.S. in continuing trade with Iran

De-dollarization reaches Europe as France, Germany, and UK to defy U.S. in continuing trade with Iran

Unlike a decade ago when the world as a whole was in lockstep for the sanctioning of Iran over its nuclear program, that is no longer the case following President Trump's decision to scuttle the 'Iran Deal' negotiated by his predecessor in the White House.  And as the U.S. has begun implementing new sanctions against the Middle Eastern OPEC nation, France, Germany, and even the UK have decided not only to defy Washington in continuing trade with Iran, but are also planning to do so outside the dollar.

False Flags, Fake News, Regime Change In Washington Exposed As Made In London

False Flags, Fake News, Regime Change In Washington Exposed As Made In London

With each passing day, revelations are emerging which show that not only are the "news stories" proliferating in the media about Presidents Trump, Putin, Xi, and Syria's Assad full of lies, but come from London-directed networks, which are out to sabotage the potential for peace through development, which is the aim of the new "win-win" paradigm and is emerging with the New Silk Road global program. Associates of the Schiller Institute have been at the forefront in exposing these lies, while explaining their origin, in London, but also their cause: the rejection by these circles of the New Paradigm, which Helga Zepp LaRouche has played a leading role in bringing into existence

Perfidious Albion Delenda Est

Perfidious Albion Delenda Est

The British Empire, threatened with its final demise, unleashed a desperate ploy this month, claiming without any evidence that Russia had used a nerve gas to attack Sergei and Yulia Skripal on British soil. London called on its trusted Western allies - and most of all, the United States — to rally behind its evil geopolitical designs, for war on Russia, and likely also China, intent on preserving their imperial division of the world into East and West. After all, the ploy had worked so often in the past. As the Lords so delight in saying: British brains and American brawn can preserve the Empire, even though the age has long passed when Britannia Ruled the Waves.

But the world has changed. Rather than dutifully following the "special relationship" with the Mother Country, President Donald Trump, on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, instead called President Vladimir Putin. The leaders of the U.S. and Russia held a dignified, extensive discussion about the necessity that these two great nations, together with China under the able leadership of Xi Jinping, can and must set about to solve the multiple existential crises facing mankind. Adults, discussing the real world, providing real leadership to a world brought to the brink of thermonuclear holocaust and global economic chaos by the misleadership of the Lords of London and their satrapies in Europe and America.

Neocon Crazies Push War Provocations, Undermine President Trump: They Must Be Defeated!

Neocon Crazies Push War Provocations, Undermine President Trump: They Must Be Defeated!

This week it was the turn of the Dutch security services and their chosen media mouthpieces to do their part to prop up the 'Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee and sent the emails to Wikileaks' Narrative. The sensational story from De Volkskrant and the TV program Nieuwsuur claims that AIVD, the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service technicians observed the SVR's 'Cozy Bear' group hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in real time. This latest story sourced to anonymous spooks, the Dutch-owned English-language Moscow Times explains, may account for the otherwise inexplicable failure of the FBI to subpoena physical access to the DNC's servers controlled by private, Atlantic Council-linked security firm Crowdstrike. A firm that has been conspicuous by its absence from more recent stories, including from the Associated Press, sourced to other cyber security companies concerning the DNC 'hack'.

However, as Crowdstrike critics like cyber security expert Jeffrey Carr have pointed out, 'Cozy Bear' aka Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) 29 is not a proven group of Russian hackers, but a set of tools and techniques which have been 'in the (dark web) wild' for several years and used by online criminals likely based in multiple countries, including on at least one occasion intruders linked to domains in Ukraine (through if not from which John Podesta's Gmail account was allegedly spearphished). The anonymously sourced story is also inconsistent with previously reported 'confessions' from Russians under prosecutorial duress that they hacked the DNC on Kremlin orders off site, chock full of inconsistencies and seriously suspect timing. The Russian Analyst started his analysis with the ridiculous claim that Russia's external intelligence service Sluzhba vneshney razvedki (SVR) would hide a notorious hacking team targeting the White House and State Department in plain sight, literally steps from the Kremlin inside or beneath a building (judging from the article's description) belonging to the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University's faculties of journalism or African and Asian studies. Such a set up could be easily infiltrated by NATO spies posing as visiting students, looking for signs of top secret facilities on the premises. For debunking of the Anglo-American-Dutch deep state article and explication of its curious timing, see New Zealand Internet Party activist Suzie Dawson's "10 Reasons the Dutch-Russia Hacking Story is Fake News" posted on Steemit.

With this intro out of the way, we present Harley Schlanger's latest piece written earlier this week for the German magazine of the LaRouche movement, Neue Solidarität. -- JWS

A New Cold War?—No, But It Could be Worse than the Cold War

A New Cold War?—No, But It Could be Worse than the Cold War

From Russia, from China, and from NYU's Stephen F. Cohen in the United States, experts are speaking about the beginning of a new Cold War—and with it, the danger of hot war involving the superpowers, and even nuclear strikes. Now for many of us who lived through it, the phrase "Cold War" conjures up the image of an endless, one-dimensional nightmare with no escape. It kills the thinking process—which we can ill-afford right now.

In reality, the historical parallel is all wrong—BUT the results of the neocons' and neoliberals' wildly throwing the U.S. into confrontation with Russia and China today, may actually be much worse than the old Cold War of the last century.

Amidst Comey Firing Furor, Trump Hosts Lavrov

One day after he fired FBI director James Comey for incompetence and covering for the Clinton crime family, President Trump hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House. For the NeverTrumpers, and the #TrumpRussia ns conspiratrolls both paid and unpaid, and neolibcon Beltway bandits ranging from the Democrat Chuck Schumers to the GOP McInsanes, it was like boosting one upraised middle digit from POTUS to the Deep State Swamp with another.

С новым годом from Vlad -- Russian President Refuses to Retaliate for Expulsion of 35 Diplomats, Prepares for Improved Relations with PEOTUS Trump, Wishes Americans a Happy New Year

С новым годом from Vlad -- Russian President Refuses to Retaliate for Expulsion of 35 Diplomats, Prepares for Improved Relations with PEOTUS Trump, Wishes Americans a Happy New Year

Something amazing just happened to close a 'frequency shifting' 2016 on a hopeful note. Perhaps mindful that since Machiavelli's time if not the birth of Christ human beings have been impressed more by magnanimity and mercy than vengeance, more cheered by hope than fear, and in the spirit of the most beloved Russian holiday which represents families gathering together and new beginnings on January 1st, Vladimir Putin announced his government will not retaliate for the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from the U.S.

Instead, Putin released a note looking ahead to cooperation with a President Donald J. Trump, as well as inviting the children of accredited diplomats including Americans to the Kremlin as his guests for a New Year's concert. Putin's announcement tossed in the trash the 'fake news' C(IA/Clinton)N(ews)N(etwork) reported that the Russian government was going to close the Anglo-American School of Moscow, which serves the diplomatic community's children representing over 60 countries in the Russian capital. As president elect Trump tweeted, well played Vlad, well played.
