    Moving along with our story, while the world is now hanging by a thread, waiting for the Mad Dogs of War to unleash Hell upon Syria at Trump’s signal, let’s see what happens at home, shall we? The ACLU now actually celebrates the FBI’s raid on Trump’s lawyer Cohen. Yes, the ACLU, whose ostensible mission for the last 50 years has been to defend civil liberties and privacy rights here in the US. In a stunning reversal, to show us how desperate they are to bring this president down, the ACLU has now come out with an official written statement,...
  • US Nuclear 'Doomsday Plane' Goes AIRBORNE Amid Fears Of WAR With Russia

    US forces have deployed the “Doomsday Plane” amid fears of war with Russia as tensions look ready to snap over Syria. Just after US President Donald Trump told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to “get ready” for a missile strike the feared aircraft took to the sky. US forces put a Boeing E-4B Nightwatch plane into the air from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Indiana. The Nightwatch – also known as the Doomsday Plane – is an airborne nuclear war command centre. It would allow the US to maintain a chain of command in the event of a major war and...
  • Elon Musk predicts World War III

    Tesla (TSLA) and SpaceX's CEO wasn't making doomsday predictions because North Korea is testing nuclear weapons. What's got Musk much more worried about world war is artificial intelligence. North Korea "should be low on our list of concerns for civilizational existential risk," Musk said in one of a series of posts on Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) early Monday. "Competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3 imo," Musk said in another tweet, using the Internet short-hand for "in my opinion."

    Vladimir Putin’s Russia is a country in which history plays a pivotal role in maintaining the legitimacy of the political regime. Putin sees himself as a leader that has given the Russians back their sense of pride. Ever since becoming president in 2000 he has been hard at work at whitewashing the Soviet period of Russian history and creating an uninterrupted narrative linking the Romanov Empire, the USSR and modern Russia. Not unlike the official French version of history, Putin’s Russian story is all about greatness – but with a twist. While France with all its respect for l’etat still...

    Turkey's parliament is expected to fast-track on Wednesday a draft bill allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, officials from the ruling AK Party and the nationalist opposition said. The move appears to support the Gulf Arab country as it faces diplomatic and trade isolation from some of the biggest Middle Eastern powers.

    When Trump hosted Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe in February, news of a North Korea missile test interrupted the proceedings, turning a dining area into a socially awkward situation room. Another test came last week, just before a visit to the Florida resort by Chinese president Xi Jinping. The world is, of course, accustomed to attention-seeking military stunts from North Korea. It’s just that they’re getting harder to dismiss. The rogue nation established its nuclear prowess years ago, and its missile technology appears to be advancing at an alarming rate. Some analysts believe it could have the ability to hit...

  • BERLIN: Anti-Trump Feminists chant "Allahu Akbar" at "Women's March" against Inauguration

    YouTube ^ | Jan 22, 2017 | Face of a dying Nation
    This clip from a "women's march" against Trump in Berlin shows feminists chanting and singing "Allahu Akbar" and "P*!@y grabs back". They also held signs demanding an "end to white supremacy" and that "Donald Trump is not [their] president". The protest was likely organized by a subsidiary of George Soros' Open Society foundation. These types of protesters in Germany, who call themselves "anti-fascists", receive hourly wages to wreak havoc and protest for globalist agendas. Indoctrinated college students follow whatever they are directed towards, hence feminism in Germany apparently now means chanting "Allahu Akbar" and makes young German girls cry tears...

    If President Franklin Roosevelt mocked Russian Communist dictator Joe Stalin the way Barack Obama belittles Vladimir Putin we might all be speaking German. But Roosevelt knew, even before the U.S. was drawn into World War II, that Stalin and Russia -- or the Soviet Union as it was then known -- were the keys to defeating Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, a strong anti-Communist, believed the same thing, and both knew that to lose the war to Hitler and the Nazi "master race" would have meant the end of western democracy.

    UK Daily Mail ^ | October 25, 2016 | Libby Plummer and Chris Summers
    Russia has unveiled chilling pictures of its largest ever nuclear missile, capable of destroying an area the size of France. The RS-28 Sarmat missile, dubbed Satan 2 by Nato, has a top speed of 4.3 miles (7km) per second and has been designed to outfox anti-missile shield systems. The new Sarmat missile could deliver warheads of 40 megatons - 2,000 times as powerful as the atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Russian President Vladimir Putin is reportedly planning to replace the country's older SS-18 Satan weapons with the new missiles.

    An unnamed former senior military officer has apparently claimed all evidence shows Russian submarines will enter the US via the small village of Wasilla, in Alaska. According to the ex-Navy brass, the stretch of coastline is totally unprotected and would be ideal to stage an attack from. He said: “Our feeling in the Navy was that Obama had turned Alaska into a defenseless area that will serve as a forward base of operations when World War III begins. “We are the verge of being invaded from Alaska all the way down into Canada and eventually the Northwest.”

    It sure seems like an odd time to be provoking a war with Russia. As I write this, we stand just a little bit more than three weeks away from one of the most pivotal elections in U.S. history, and Barack Obama has chosen this moment to strongly threaten the Russians. As I wrote about on Friday, Reuters is reporting that Obama is contemplating “direct U.S. military action” against Syrian military targets, and the Russians have already indicated that any assault on Syrian forces would be considered an attack on themselves. The rapidly deteriorating crisis in Syria has already caused...

    As the US officially enters the Yemen military campaign, the UK appears ready and willing to precipiate a catalytic event from which there is no going back. With relations between Russia and the West at post-Cold War lows and deteriorating fast, Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the go-ahead to shoot down Russian military jets when flying missions over Syria and Iraq, if they are endangered by them. The development comes with warnings that the UK and Russia are now "one step closer" to being at war, according to the Sunday Times. While the RAF's Tornado pilots have...

    Because the mainstream media is devoting almost all of their time and energy to covering the Trump and Clinton campaigns, most Americans don’t realize that the Obama administration is bringing us perilously close to war with Russia. On Friday, Barack Obama is going to sit down with his foreign policy team and discuss “military options” in Syria. As you will see below, the options under consideration include direct strikes “on Syrian military bases”. Russia has already pledged to respond militarily to any direct strikes on Syrian forces, and so the decisions that Barack Obama makes regarding Syria on Friday could...

    While the United States and the rest of the world are distracted by the ongoing machinations of an approaching U.S. election, Russia and America are edging ever closer to a direct military confrontation in Syria. With the brutal offensive in Eastern Aleppo as the backdrop, the potential for confrontation between these two old enemies is no longer a fantasy. In the corridors of Moscow and the Pentagon there is a growing sense that just such a military showdown between the two Cold War super powers is an inevitability at this point. The ramifications of such a confrontation, obviously, are huge....

    TEHRAN (FNA)- The US has deployed its special forces in at least 7 bases in Northern Syria which are located in Qamishli, Ain Issa, Kobane, Hasaka and Tal Abyadh regions. The Pentagon admitted last week that it has stationed its forces in Northern Syria but didn’t reveal any details. Based on information obtained by FNA from media outlets and field sources, the 7 bases in which the US forces are deployed are: 1.The US forces are seeking to turn Rmeilan airfield in Syria's Northern province of Hasakah into their new operations room and build helipads in there. 2.

    NATO continues to expand its missile potential in Europe and Moscow is concerned over the deployment of NATO infrastructure near its borders, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov stated. “NATO members are continuing to expand their anti-missile capability in Europe in the framework of the so-called ‘phased adaptive approach.’ We have repeatedly expressed concern over the placement of elements of strategic infrastructure in the immediate vicinity of our borders, which directly affects our interests in the field of security,” he said at a session of the Russian Public Council on International Cooperation and Public Diplomacy in the Public Chamber. Ryabkov added...
