It wasn’t Russia who tried to fix the 2016 U.S. presidential election; it was the British.

“Trump trumps them all in 2017”

— Armchair political analyst

In their joint effort to ensure a Clinton victory (and a Trump loss), a transatlantic partnership was secretly formed at the highest echelons of the American and British Governments.

In so doing, webs of intrigue were woven to first entrap the Trump Campaign; and then to ensnare the fledging administration post Inauguration Day.  In the interest of inflaming suspicions about a non-existent collusion between the Russians and Team Trump, Dossiergate was born.

Special Note:
The burning question on everyone’s mind is: Why did the Democrats risk so much by floating the bogus “Trump-Russia collusion” story when they knew it was patently false. They were exceedingly desperate.  Not only to explain their historic loss at the polls (think Podesta); bit also to deflect the inevitable accusations of sheer corruption when their own Russian Scandal was blown wide open as is happening now.  The Democrats under the Clintons and Obama have so much naked criminality that their only way out was to go on the offense. “It has been a Clinton MO for decades to accuse their enemies of exactly what they themselves are guilty of. This allowed them in the past to always be on the offensive, and rarely on the defensive, even when they are guilty of so much hardcore criminal activity.[2] The incredibly sore losers on the Democratic side have levied false conspiracy charges against the Trump campaign for so long that now the country is ready to hear about the real Russian conspiracy—Uraniumgate.” (Source: URANIUMGATE: The Queen Bee Gets Stung By ‘The Putin Sting’)

Truly, it doesn’t get more sordid than Dossiergate in the political and espionage realm on either side of the Atlantic.  Not only were the false allegations against President Trump quite purposefully concocted, they were prurient and scurrilous, salacious and lascivious for a very specific reason.  In point of fact, these fictitious allegations were deliberately manufactured with the intent to deceive the American people and the U.S. Congress.  And so they did.

KEY POINT: It’s a very common tactic of the U.S. Intelligence Community, especially throughout the American political realm, to take down a targeted politician with explicit accusations of sexual misconduct. The C.I.A., NSA, DIA and FBI have used this technique of personal destruction practically forever.  They know that the historical puritan mindset of many voting citizens does not tolerate this type of wrongdoing, particularly on the Right.  They even took down President Clinton using his own outrageous sexual exploits –perpetrated in the White House — against him.

The Russians may be coming, but the British are already here

As a matter of historical fact, the British never left the Thirteen Colonies after the Revolutionary War.  Herein lies the real problem.

Very few really understand the true nature of the Anglo-American ‘special relationship’.  It’s very special alright because the United States of America is still a colony of the British Empire.  Just because the empire has been replaced by the “The Commonwealth of Nations” doesn’t mean it is not very much alive and working…toward the financial enslavement of humanity.

The two primary control mechanisms by which the Brits have successfully exercised total control over the U.S. Government, Inc. are financial and legal.  Of course, on paper — the paper that no one has ever seen before — the U.S. Federal Reserve System is, at its core, a British-Rothschild banking operation.  Yes, there are several other international stakeholders in the Federal Reserve criminal banking syndicate, but at the first level of clandestine administration, it’s fundamentally British and headquartered in London.

As for the legal control matrix, that was essentially put into place with the establishment of the BAR—British Accreditation Registry. See: The Crown Temple: A History of the Bar Association and Who Really Owns the USA   As a matter of historical fact, the Founding Fathers of the American Republic quite providentially outlawed BAR-registered attorneys from ever holding public office in the USA.  However, the Thirteenth Amendment, which banned foreign agents and lawyers from operating in such a capacity, was surreptitiously mysteriously struck from the Congressional record and conveniently erased from the public domain. See: The Missing 13th Amendment: *No Lawyers Allowed In Public Office*

SERCO: The Biggest Company You’ve Never Heard Of

In reality, the Brits own and operate the U.S. Government, Inc. as though it was the British East India Company of the 17th century.  While such a statement may seems incredible, it’s absolutely true.  In fact, from a strictly financial and legal viewpoint, there is a British Company doing business as SERCO, Inc. throughout the United States that literally controls much of U.S. Federal Government.  The following exposé clearly delineates the depth and breadth of this relatively unknown British enterprise.

SERCO: Foreign Outsourcing Giant Takes Over the US National Security State

With this greatly expanded understanding, it ought to be much easier to apprehend the sheer enormity and profundity of the takeover of America by our British overlords.  And, by the way, SERCO, is only one of hundreds of multinational companies headquartered in London which own and operate half of Corporate America.  Not only was this achieved through outright stock ownership, the covert side is implemented through transparent overlapping directorships, secret offshore banking relationships, shareholder proxy wars, and many other ways of stealthily taking control of a publicly traded corporation.

What’s the point?

First, that this inexorable process of taking complete control of the 50 states and territories began in 1776.  Actually, the Brits had already owned — lock, stock and barrel — as they like to say, the colonies from day one.  So maintaining, and implementing further, such tight control was really quite easy given that most of the lockdown took place completely under the radar.  When you have 240 plus years to lock the whole place down, how difficult will it be when you effectively own the banks, developed all legal process and procedure, and own all the root technologies?

The British Press

There is no other press corps on Earth as proficient in the art of fabricating war propaganda and fictitious narratives as London’s Fleet Street.  This is where all of the major wars waged across the planet since 1600 both began, and ended.

“Fleet Street was once considered the most important location for journalism in the world, with Britain’s national newspapers making the street their home for centuries.”[1]

No other language has ever attained the global status as English has.  Of course, this significant fact of life was guaranteed by the unrivalled length and breadth of the British Empire.  The bottom line here is that wherever English is written or spoken, you know who the real boss is.  That’s because once power of that magnitude is acquired, it doesn’t ever change hands.  It may appear to, but it really doesn’t.

In light of these stark realities, it should come as no surprise that there is no other nation that has meddled in the affairs of the United States like Great Britain.  A quick scan of the London dailies will clearly demonstrate that myriad headlines are still directed at their former colony.  A careful analysis will demonstrate that many of the most fallacious stories about the US government and American society are generated by the British tabloids, which then find their way onto their mainstream media platforms; albeit, in a much more acceptable format.

Simply put, there is no Media Industry anywhere that can cook up a dish of pure BS, mixed with mendacity, seasoned with utter falsehoods and garnished with libel like the Brits.  It’s almost as though these folks (the stone-cold liars among them aka presstitutes) were hardwired to lie at birth—for real!  They are also great weavers of webs of lies and deceit (when they’re not in the kitchen) creating whole tapestries with their characteristic threads of disinformation and misinformation, prevarication and equivocation, deception and misrepresentation.

Fast forward to 2016

The 2016 presidential campaign season saw the British press go into gear like never before.  From the very day that Donald Trump announced his candidacy, the London press has torn him apart like a school of piranhas.  When they weren’t doing that they were stinging him like a massive swarm of angry hornets, bees and wasps.  Every time you opened one of their news websites, you would instantly see that Trump fell into yet another snake pit, right after somehow escaping from the lion’s den.

If there is any doubt about this dubious journalistic phenomenon, please see for yourself.  The SOTN staff visits the British MSM sites before any other early every morning.  In this way we are forewarned about the day’s coming storms that are blowing across the pond.  It’s become self-evident that the British journalists, working in concert with their partners in the intelligence community, receive their talking points from on high.  Those key points then inform the rest of the world’s press about how to proceed with their hopelessly dishonest reporting.


The election of Donald Trump reflects a great failure for both the British and American media corporations that take their direction for the U.S. and U.K. Intelligence Communities.  This gross failure is where Dossiergate found its beginning.

Dossiergate was actually a joint project started by both the British and American spooks.  After 8 years of Obama, and 6 years of PM David Cameron, they knew that a LOT went on that crossed every line of legality, propriety and morality.  Obama’s lawlessness is well known and documented the world over, as was Cameron’s willingness to accommodate the New World Order agenda.  Hence, the last thing the spook community wanted to see was Dudley Do-right, in the form of a President Donald Trump, riding his horse to the White House every day.

So what did they do to prevent this eventuality?  What didn’t they do?!  Really, the spooks pulled out all the stops.  They broke every law and any law that stood in their way to preclude a Trump presidency.  The GHCQ scandal is only one very serious collusion between the CIA/NSA and MI6/GHCQ.  Wiretapping a presidential candidate by the CIA-NSA leadership, using the GHCQ for plausible deniability, is only the least serious of espionage crimes that were committed.

False Flag Terror Attack Outside Of Parliament “Staged” To Distract From The GCHQ Wiretap Scandal

If ever there was a highly organized conspiracy between the British intelligence and their American counterparts, Dossiergate is it.  That the Brits would be so recklessly bold as to produce such an obvious hit piece full of bogus evidence and counterfeit claims show just how impervious they believe they are to American justice.

Of course, the critical part that the false dossier played was simply to jumpstart the witch hunt against the Trump Administration and Putin’s Russia.  And that it did.  What is particularly fortuitous for Trump is that the scandal seems to have sucked in a “Who’s Who” of NWO globalists, all of whom are dyed-in-the-wool agents of Deep State.

You name them — Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Robert Mueller, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe and others have all been stung by the Dossiergate sting.

However, the really crucial issue here is the extent to which the British control the American side of espionage, as well as manipulate the counter-espionage function to accomplish their subversive goals.

The simple point of fact about this ever-unfolding joint black operation is that it has been going on since day one.  The day that Trump declared his candidacy they all mobilized against him.  Irrespective of all the evidence showing clear-cut British interference in the 2016 election, everyone is still screaming about Russia.  The longer the Mueller investigation goes on, the more Team Trump is exonerated … and the British are appropriately incriminated.

And, yet, the British intelligence is so adept at controlling the MSM narrative that all one will ever hear is about Russia, when it’s really not-so-Great Britain that was truly responsible for such a crazy electoral process and post-election chaos.

The British have been waging a multi-century war against Russia euphemistically known as the Great Game.  So it’s quite natural that they will blame Putin’s Kremlin for anything and everything.  It’s quite true that their incorrigible and pathological hatred of all things Russian has been successfully exported to the USA.  However, it’s also very important to point out that they had a LOT of help stateside to create a whole nation of Russophobes.  See: Why the Anglo-American Axis is so determined to wage war against Russia

Trump turns the tables

Or, is it that “time” has turned the tables on the British and their American co-conspirators?

Exactly how deep and broad a scandal that this Anglo-American cabal has perpetrated will likely never be known; nor has one so revelatory ever occurred in world history.  By that, it should be understood there has never been an instance whereby hard evidence exists on the global Internet, for any digitally connected individual to read and view, which so conclusively incriminates the C.I.A., NSA, FBI, DNC, Clinton Campaign and Obama Administration.

Likewise, the same evidence points directly at the GCHQ, MI6, MI5, as well as the cottage industry of British cyber-spooks such as Fusion GPS.

The blatantly erroneous oppo piece produced by Fusion GPS will go down in history as the moment the Brits got caught with their pants down … all the way down … where they remain today.  No one has ever seen anything like the fake dossier that Christopher Steele made up out of thin air.  That he or Fusion GPS would ever attach their names to it is equally perplexing as the Brits do not tend to be so sloppy; unless, the extraordinary sloppiness was by purposeful design.  Now perhaps that’s the real story!

And the proof of this hidden back story can be found in the following headlines posted at the DRUDGE REPORT on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, as seen in this screenshot.


It’s certainly not the Russians we ought to be concerned about; it’s the bloody Brits.

Editor’s Note

For the uninitiated, this exposé delineates only one layer of command and control of the Global Control Matrix.  The still functioning hierarchy of the British Empire actually represents a relatively low level of planetary administration.  The World Shadow Government is actually composed of many levels of leadership.  The British Monarchy has always been overseen by the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. the Vatican), although history has been intentionally written to indicate otherwise.  The first corporations within Christendom were incorporated in Northern Italy centuries before 1600, not London.  The Vatican and Roman law ultimately dictate, but this connection is hidden from the masses.  There are several more levels of leadership above the Vatican.  For example, the Black Nobility still exercise great power and influence in worldly affairs as do the Jewish bankers who grew rich from their global trade and commerce.

‘Dangerous direction: If Japan’s Abe wins snap election, he’ll join US in confronting N.Korea’

f Japan’s Prime Minister Abe wins the snap election, he’ll develop cooperation with the US and join in its willingness to take risks in confronting North Korea, said Gregory Clark, head of the Research Japan Office. That’s a dangerous direction, he adds.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has dissolved the lower house of the parliament, paving the way for a snap election next month. Abe wants to capitalize on high approval ratings to get a mandate for tougher defense policies toward North Korea.

RT: Does Abe effectively use the “North Korean threat” as a pretext to get more power and to militarize the country?

Gregory Clark: This has been going on for more than a decade. This all began back in 2004, when then-Prime Minister Mr. (Junichiro) Koizumi made a major breakthrough in relations with North Korea, namely solving the abduction issue. North Korea had in the 1970’s and 1980’s abducted a number of Japanese people and used them for teaching Japanese and so on to spies. Japan’s foreign ministry had negotiated secretly with North Korea and obtained the release of the five abductees who were still alive. North Korea said the rest had died.

Now, Mr. Abe seized on this to say: “Oh, they are hiding some of these people they abducted, they are still hiding them. There must be more than five.” But there is no reason why North Korea would want to hide them. At the time the then-Prime Minister Koizumi put out what’s called the Pyongyang Declaration, which promised the normalization of relations with North Korea. In other words, there would be a Chinese embassy or consulate in Pyongyang, and aid North Korea to develop energy without having to rely on nuclear energy, and so on.

This was a threat to Mr. Abe – that relations with North Korea would improve, and he would lose the pretext he needed for Japan’s moving to the right; for Japan’s getting closer to the US, and for Japan’s rearmament. So he moved firmly, consciously and deliberately to sabotage the Pyongyang Declaration, using in the first instance the abduction question.

Then America did the same thing with its sabotaging of the 1994 agreed framework, which would also have promised normalization. But under the (George W.) Bush regime these two were broken. So North Korea did the obvious thing – it said: “Ok, we have to develop our nuclear weapons, as other people have refused to normalize relations.” Then Mr. Abe uses the North Korean development of nuclear weapons as a reason for an even harder line against North Korea…

RT: Do you think that Abe uses fear mongering to achieve his goals? How effective is that?

GC: Yes, it is very effective. The Japanese are rather emotional people, and they don’t think about things very logically. They don’t think why North Korea had to develop nuclear weapons. When America applies pressure to try to stop North Korea developing these weapons, North Korea makes loud noises and starts firing rockers. Some of them have to go over Japan as they want to test long-distance rockets. This is denounced as illegal, and a threat to Japan and they have rocket alerts with children in the schools having to hide under their desks, and so on. No one has mentioned the fact that the rockets go more than 100 kilometers into the air. They are in space – space is international territory. They have as much right to put rockers there as America has to put satellites there…

RT: What could be the consequences of further militarization?

GC: I am not too worried because the Japanese now are not really interested in the military – the young people at least. There is full employment. The military is a hard life. Young Japanese don’t like a hard life…

RT: If Abe wins would this mean further militarization of the country? Which pro-militarization steps do you expect from him?

GC: Of course they will change the Constitution somewhat to allow the existence of military forces. At that moment the existence is prohibited. It already has been the status quo – that already has been the situation for many years. So that is not that much of a change. What he will do – is rather than develop Japans’ military forces,… he’ll emphasize even more cooperation with the US. America, of course, is very willing to take risks in confronting North Korea, and Japan would join America in doing that. That would be a major step in, what I see a dangerous direction.

Germany’s dismal election

epa05730233 German Chancellor Angela Merkel attends the commemoration of the victims of the Berlin Christmas market terror truck attack in the German Parliament, in Berlin, Germany, 19 January 2017. EPA/CLEMENS BILAN

On Sunday Germany votes in an election from which Chancellor Merkel’s CDU party is universally expected to remain the largest but which none of the underlying problems which affect Germany have been addressed.

One of the problems involved in discussing Germany is that the image of the country as a runaway economic success story is so powerful that it makes objective analysis of its problems difficult.

The reality is that Germany is indeed a very rich and economically successful country.  However there are growing problems that put its long term prospects in doubt, and these are being ignored rather than addressed.

Briefly, the German system as it evolved after the Second World War involved a political and financial system heavily geared towards high business investment.

The secret of German economic success was the close collaboration of decentralised regional governments and banks with a partially cartelised business community, with the whole system underpinned by high savings and a well trained and well organised workforce.

Key to the success of the system was a monetary policy geared towards creating low inflation and high savings, and a fiscal policy that avoided deficit.

The result was indeed high business investment drawing on high savings in conditions of extreme price stability within a strictly controlled competitive environment, enabling German business to remain continuously competitive even as German wages and living standards steadily rose.

Over the last decades this system has slowly unravelled as German banks have become less focused on Germany’s domestic economy and more involved in the international financial system, and as Germany has integrated itself ever more deeply into the EU’s institutions and has replaced the Deutschmark with the euro.

The result is that savings and investment in the German economy have fallen from their historic post war highs, so that the total rate of investment in the German economy has fallen from around 30% of GDP in the early 1980s to around 19% now, with the two biggest falls taking place in 1990 (at the time of unification) and in 2000 (at the time of the introduction of the euro), with the rate of investment unchanged since then.

Moreover recently pressure on savings has been increasing further because of the zero interest rate/quantitative easing policy of the European Central Bank, whose lax monetary policy is also causing Germany to experience for the first time in its post Second World War history on a sustained basis a property price boom, something which the Bundesbank, Germany’s own central bank, always anxious to direct investment towards businesses rather than fixed assets, had previously always acted to choke off.

The Germans have responded to the fall in investment in their classic way, striving to keep their economy internationally competitive by compensating for the fall in investment with downward pressure on wages.

In addition Germany has sought to continue to run a budget surplus – operating its economy ‘within its means’ as it is called – a policy whose intended and actual effect is to choke off imports.

Taken together with the relative weakness of the euro (as compared to the strength of any currency Germany might have had if it still had the Deutschmark) these policies have kept the German economy internationally competitive, causing it to run a massive surplus.

However the continued downward pressure on wages, the action taken to make the German workforce more ‘flexible’ (the so-called Hartz IV reforms), the refusal to run a budget deficit (causing public investment to collapse), and the property price boom, are making German society more unequal, and are increasing pressure on living standards.

Needless to say that feeds resentment and It is anyway debatable how sustainable a system, which compensates lower wages for lower investment, in the end is.

At this point it is important to make some qualifiers.  The German economy remains exceptionally strong and the standard of living in Germany remains by international standards extremely high.  The problems, though real, are still in their infancy, and there is time and space to turn things round.

Germany’s real problem is not that its problems are intractable.  It is that under Angela Merkel, who became the CDU’s leader in 2000 – just as the second big fall in the economy’s rate of investment took place – and who has been Germany’s Chancellor since 2005, no serious attempt to address these problems has been taking place.

At a time when Germany needs purposeful policies to turn things round, Merkel’s complacent “keep calm and carry on” approach is leaving them as they are.

The result is that behind the facade of contentment there is growing unease.  Some of the consequences have been well described in a recent article by Andrew Spannaus

A …. major factor is the system of labor market and welfare reforms introduced in Germany in the 2000s. The most famous is the “Hartz IV” law, which provides unemployment subsidies of just 280 euros ($330) a month, and forces people to accept whatever jobs they are offered, even at only 1-2 euros an hour.

German companies have done very well with this system, that allows them to exploit extremely cheap and flexible labor. Critics points to this as one – although certainly not the only – factor contributing to the great success of German industry in Europe.

For the six million citizens trapped in the system though, things aren’t so great. There are entire areas called “Hartz IV neighborhoods,” indicating widespread socio-economic difficulties among the local population. If we add the high level of “working poor,” a category that has reached 9 percent of the population in Germany, it becomes clear where the populist movements can look for votes on economic issues.

This situation explains the strong reaction of many Germans when Merkel, without much consultation, suddenly threw open Germany’s and Europe’s doors to the mass refugee flow in 2015.  Inevitably many poorer working class Germans, who have been under growing economic pressure for some time, resented the fact that Merkel and the political establishment appeared to care more about the refugees than it cared about them.  In my opinion this was a far more important factor in the widespread protests in Germany against Merkel’s policy in 2015 than the supposed xenophobic or racist attitudes of lower class German voters, whose grandparents had accepted mass immigration from Turkey and southern Europe in the boom times of the 1950s and 1960s without protest.

Unfortunately the problem is not just Merkel.  The entire German political establishment is locked into the same complacency, so that she has fought the election without coming under any serious challenge.

That a thirst for such a challenge is there is shown by the brief surge of support for Martin Schultz after the SPD nominated as its Chancellor designate at the start of the year.  In the event – as I and many others predicted – Schulz has however proved to have been a truly dreadful choice, with offering no credible alternative to Merkel, so that after his brief surge the SPD’s polling figures have spiralled down.

The result is a dismal election, with a sense of Germany treading water.  Even neoliberal admirers of Merkel such as the Guardian’s Natalie Nougayrède are dismayed

Having spent this week in Germany, I am struck by another inward-looking syndrome. The German campaign has paid very little attention to Europe, not to mention the world beyond it. It has practically dispensed with the question of how the country should relate to realities beyond its borders: the global shifts at work, how to define its role in a changing environment, how to strategically prepare for the future, and the external impacts that may lie in store…..

The Germans simply don’t want to hear much about the troubles of our times and how to face them: they just want to hunker down and keep on living the good life – which is one of Merkel’s CDU party slogans…..

…..I’ve just spent days in Berlin, Leipzig and Munich, meeting officials, members of the Bundestag, municipal and regional elected representatives, and civil society activists, on a study tour of the German elections with the Robert Bosch Academy. Here are some of the comments I heard. On Germany’s potential leadership role in the Trump era: “The expectations other countries have towards Germany are sometimes exaggerated. We are self-confident, but we don’t have any missionary zeal. We are intensely aware of our history”; “Trump is disturbing, but to take up a leadership role is just too much for us.”

On Europe: “It’s not a topic in this campaign because all the parties, apart from the AfD [the far-right Alternative for Germany], are convinced by the European project. Germans need Europe to forget they are Germans. It’s how we break away from our national historical burden.” On eurozone reform (said with a touch of irony): “Macron wants progress, but it might be expensive for us.” And on Brexit (when asked about it): “It’s like a satire show.”

One of the most fascinating developments in Germany is that, contrary to many predictions, the 2015 refugee crisis has not upended the nation’s politics entirely. How come? In Britain, it contributed to producing Brexit. In France, it helped Le Pen collect 10m votes. In 2015 the world’s huddled, desperate masses came to Germany – and yet, two years on, the country hardly seems to worry about the state of the world, or wants to even discuss it. “We are proud of what we did, the welcome culture, but it mustn’t happen again,” is the main answer you get when raising the question.

Into the gap opened up by the German elite’s complacency has moved the AfD, the new political movement originally created by a group of professors to challenge the twin orthodoxies of Germany’s Atlanticist foreign policy and the euro, but which has gained popular traction as it has redefined itself as an anti-immigrant party and has veered towards the right.

How well the AfD will do in Sunday’s election remains to be seen.  Here however I will restate a view which I previously made in connection with the role in French politics of Marine Le Pen.  Since in Germany as in France there will alway be a majority against a challenge to the status quo from the right, the eventual effect in Germany of the AfD, as of Marine Le Pen in France, will be to reinforce the status quo, not to change it.

On the subject of Angela Merkel herself, though she retains many of her political skills and a large reservoir of support amongst Germany’s large centre right Christian electorate, she has increasingly come across in this election (at least to me) as tired and stale, something which incidentally was never true of her CDU predecessor Helmut Kohl.

Almost everyone expects this to be Merkel’s last election, and I have no doubt this is right.  Not only is Merkel’s time as Chancellor drawing to a close, but I doubt she will be around for much longer, and I think it is unlikely she will see out her full term.  Had the SPD picked a more charismatic and popular candidate than Martin Schulz, I have no doubt she would have been in serious trouble during the election, though the nature of the German political and electoral system always gives the incumbent Chancellor a big advantage.

Germany’s and Europe’s problem – and potentially their crisis – is that in the desert which is what Germany’s current politics have become, it is difficult to see any change coming after Merkel is finally gone.

Israel Won the First Round of the French Election

                                                                                By Sajjad Shaukat for Veterans Today

Recall that three days before the general elections in Spain, the train bombings in Madrid on March 11, 2004, which killed more than 200 people turned the election results in favour of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero whose Socialist Party won the elections, as he had said that Spain where the “US war has been deeply unpopular”, “would withdraw its troops.” While government led by the Prime Minister Jose Maria staunchly supported the American-led war in Iraq lost the election. General masses in Spain held the North African immigrants linked to Al-Qaeda for the train bombings, while the Prime Minister Aznar’s attempts to blame the attack on Basque terror group ETA backfired the voters.

Immediately after his victory in the Spanish elections, Zapatero had announced that Spain would withdraw its troops from Iraq. The statement of the Zapatero was greatly criticized by America that was made after the bomb blasts in Spain.

The victory of the Socialist Party in Spain was being called by some in Europe and America as a victory of terrorism, a precedent that offers Al-Qaeda or groups like it the notion that they can alter the democratic process with bombs and murder. A former member of the Spanish Parliament, Pedro Schwartz remarked, “Al-Qaeda won the election”.

Similarly, three days before France’s presidential elections, held on Sunday (April 23, 2017), a French policeman was shot dead and two others were wounded in central Paris on April 20, this year whena gunman wielding a machine gun leapt out of a car and opened fire on the Champs-Elysees, Paris’s most famous boulevard. Via its Amaq news agency, the Islamic State group (Also known as Daesh, ISIS, ISIL) claimed that the attack was carried out by “Abu Yousuf al-Baljiki (the Belgian) and he is one of the Islamic State’s fighters.”

French President Francois Hollande said that he was convinced the “cowardly killing” on the Champs Elysees boulevard was an act of terrorism.

Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old French national who was shot dead by the police was identified as the attacker. Prosecutors said that a note defending ISIS fell out of his pocket, although there was no previous evidence of radicalization.

After the shooting, the three main candidates canceled campaign events and instead made televised statements in which they competed to talk tough on security and vowed a crackdown on ISIS.

The incident brought issues of terrorism, security and immigration back to the forefront of the campaign. The ultra-nationalist and far-right candidate—the anti-immigration National Front leader Marine Le Pen demanded the closure of all Islamist mosques, repeating her call for Europe’s partly open borders to be closed. He has also called for campaigning generally to be suspended.

Le Pen’s opponents, meanwhile, urged France to stand against the hard-line rhetoric that has dominated her campaign.

Prime Minister Cazeneuve Bernard accused Le Pen of trying to capitalize on the attack by seeking to exploit fear “for exclusively political ends.”

As regards the results of the first round of the presidential election, the French Interior ministry announced on Monday (April 24) that centrist Emmanuel Macron of the independent En Marche party won 23.75 percent votes and the far-right’s Marine Le Pen of France’s National Front party won 21.53 percent votes.

According to a poll from Ipsos/Sopra Steria, “Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will face one another in the final round of the French presidential election on May 7. Macron is expected to win the second round of the French election with 62 percent of the vote versus 38 percent for Le Pen.”

In a speech made after Sunday’s exit polls were released—the far-right candidate Le Pen vowed to defend France against globalization and declared that now is the time to free the French population from arrogant elite. On April 24, Le Pen continued to emphasize the anti-immigrant and anti-globalization views which propelled her into the second round, and she denounced the efforts of the mainstream parties to keep her out of the presidency. Le Pen also called Macron “weak” on terrorism, an issue that drew renewed attention days before the first round of voting, when a gunman on the Champs-Élysées, in central Paris, killed a police officer.

Some of Le Pen’s advisers said, in interviews with French media on April 24, “They were hoping to lure some of the supporters of the defeated Mélenchon, whose populist program bore similarities to that of Le Pen: hostility to the European Union, NATO and the forces of globalization; and a forgiving attitude toward Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.”

The Republican Party’s Francois Fillon who got 20 percent votes, was slightly ahead of the far-left’s Jean-Luc Melenchon, who had 19 percent. Fillon said that he was the sole person responsible for his defeat and adding that he also intends to vote for Macron as Le Pen, he stated, would lead the country to failure.

Le Pen also wants France to leave the EU, and dropping the shared euro currency to return to the French franc.

Macron who wants closer cooperation between the bloc’s 28 nations, a united Europe with open borders, supports globalization and the pro-free market.

Besides Fillon and Socialist Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, including politicians from the Socialist and Les Républicains parties–the mainstream centre-left and centre-right groups which have dominated French politics for decades, but found themselves shut out by voters–united on April 23 in urging the people to vote for Macron on May 7, also stated that because Le Pen’s programme would bankrupt France and throw the EU into chaos, while citing the history of violence and intolerance of Le Pen’s far-right National Front party.

President, François Hollande stated, “He would vote for Macron who is his former economy minister, because Le Pen represents both the danger of the isolation of France and of rupture with the EU…A far-right president would deeply divide France.”

The fact of the matter is that if becomes the president of France, Emmanuel Macron will maintain the US-led status quo in the world and will further advance the Israeli agenda against Russia, China, Syria, Pakistan etc, and the Muslims, while further advancing the international forces of globalization, controlled by the wealthy Jews and the elite class at the cost of small countries and the poor class.

He has set aside the fact that after the disintegration of the former Soviet Union, in the unipolar world, the Third World and Muslim countries were compelled to realign their domestic policies according to Washington’s dictates. In order to obtain the hidden agenda of Jews, the US imposed its sudden terms of globalization such as free markets, privatization and de-nationalization etc. on the ill-prepared developing countries, which left behind shattered nations and a global financial crisis. It further widened the gap between the poor and the rich countries or G-7 countries. The corporations and international financial institutions like IMF and World Bank which are indirectly controlled by Jews have continued to drive the project of globalization through the United States.

Regarding Macron’s relationship with Israel, under the Caption “Emmanuel Macron’s Israeli Ties”, Gil Hoffman wrote in Jerusalem Post, “Israeli politicians across the political map boast of friendship with the French presidential candidate, expressing their support ahead of the second round of elections. Israeli politicians who have met Emmanuel Macron said Monday they are impressed with the French presidential candidate. Macron, who will face a runoff race against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen on May 7, was in Israel in September 2015 when he was economy minister and met with his counterpart at the time, Arye Deri…I was very impressed by him,” Deri said…But two Israeli politicians who see themselves as future prime ministers have built close ties with the French candidate…Macron met Labor leadership candidate Erel Margalit…Margalit, who was a hi-tech entrepreneur before he entered politics, said the two have met four or five times, sometimes spending a full day together discussing innovation…If Macron is elected, France will embark on an innovation economy and Israel will be at the center of its economic cooperation, Margalit said.”

On April 18, 2017, under the title Macron Fights for France’s Jewish Vote, Michael Wilner wrote in Jerusalem Post, “France’s leading presidential candidate sees threats to the nation’s Jews from the Right and Left. Across France’s largest cities, where the nation’s remaining Jews are concentrated, up to 10 armed guards protect each synagogue on a daily basis ever since a national emergency went into effect over two years ago…Indeed, French Jews have been fleeing the country in fear of violence against them for Israel and the United States….Emmanuel Macron fears this as well. The 39-year-old presidential candidate–an unknown quantity here just two years ago–is campaigning for the Jewish vote, keenly aware of the threat. But when France goes to the polls on Sunday, its Jews will face a unique choice: To vote in the spirit of Jewish Americans…or in the Israeli posture…Macron is betting…appealing to Jewish community values shared with the French Republic…He knows there is a real danger from a double extremism–from the far-Right with Marine Le Pen, and from the far-Left, said Gilles Taieb, a prominent member of the French Jewish community who joined Macron’s En Marche! campaign in August…Senior campaign officials told The Jerusalem Post that Macron considers Le Pen (National Front) a threat to French Jews, woven from the same cloth as her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, who famously minimized the Holocaust during his own political rise…Yet in recent weeks, she has made comments of her own that suggest she shares her father’s views.”

In this regard, Haaretz an Israeli newspaper (www.haaretz.com) pointed out on April, 23 and 24, 2017, “In a race…Macron, a pro-European Union ex-banker and economy minister…received slightly more votes than Le Pen…Speaking on Holocaust Remembrance Day, Moshe Kantor described Le Pen as “dangerous” and added that it was extremely regrettable that more than one in five French voters voted for Le Pen…Kantor highlighted that the 48-year-old National Front leader recently made comments against the historic record of the Holocaust which makes her no less dangerous than her Holocaust-denying father who she has tried to hide…[On April 21] Russian Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar called on French Jews to leave their country if the far right politician Marine Le Pen is elected president…Le Pen recently called for banning the wearing of the kippah in public and for making it illegal for French nationals to also have an Israeli passport…As for Le Pen, she has been officially ostracized by Israel throughout her political career. Israel accepts the policy of the French Jewish leadership that sees her National Front party as anti-Semitic and therefore has no ties with it.”

It is notable that Macron did not mention, as to how he will eliminate ISIS, while all other candidates have vowed to destroy the ISIS. It further creates doubt about her Israeli connections.

Fillon had stated that if elected, his foreign policy priority would be the destruction of ISIS. He said, “In times such as these we have to demonstrate that France is united…We also have to be clear that we are in a state of emergency. We are at war. This fight for freedom and for the security of the French people must be the priority of the next five-year term.”

Fillon’s statement reminds that just after the September 11 tragedy inside the United States, President George W. Bush said, “We are at war” and used the words, “crusade against the evil-doers”, adding to the perception that the ongoing ‘different war’ against terrorism is actually a war against the Muslim countries.

Under the mask of the 9/11 catastrophe, preplanned strategy of the neo-conservatives headed towards unexpected developments such as employment of pressure-diplomacy on the weak states—Muslim countries like Pakistan, Indonesia etc., including almost all the Arab states and the Western countries which also include Europe joined Bush’s fake global war on terror. US did not bother for rise of more militancy and internal instability in these countries, because it wanted to destabilize these countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan etc. to obtain the goals of a greater Israel. Al-Qaeda which was created by America has continuously been used by the US President Bush and the President Barack Obama and some Western countries as a scapegoat to target Labia, Syria and to malign Pakistan as the latter is the only nuclear country in the Muslim World, and to propagate against Tehran’s peaceful nuclear progragmme. In all cases, the purpose behind was to safeguard the interests of the Zionists and Israel.

It is notable that while making Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda as scapegoats, a number of fake video messages were telecast on various TV channels and websites by some Zionist Jews and Israeli secret agency Mossad to obtain Israel’s anti-Muslim aims. For example, during the November 2004 elections in the US, a fake video tape helped the George W. Bush to get lead over John Kerry.

President Obama who created ISIL, used it and Al-Qaeda, including their affiliated outfits through CIA to continue the phony war on terror to secure the illegitimate interests of Israel. If the double game of President Bush (The Senior) and George W. Bush franchised Al-Qaeda on global level, President Obama’s dual policy franchised both Al-Qaeda and ISIS as part of the anti-Muslim campaign and left no stone unturned in advancing the agenda of the Zionists, Israeli lobbies and the neoconservatives in the pretext of global war on terror.

It is mentionable that when Iraq-based ISIS which itself broke away from Al-Qaeda, proclaimed a worldwide caliphate by its leader Abu Baker al-Baghdadi, on 29 June 2014, ISIS’s criminal actions had widely been criticized in the world, with many Islamic communities judging the group to be unrepresentative of Islam. One of ISIS’s goals has been to establish a radical Sunni Islamic state in Iraq and Syria Jordan, Palestine etc. (Levant region). It has been used by the CIA and Mossad for distorting the image of Islam and for inciting the feelings of Western Christians and Kurds against Muslims. Besides some Islamic countries, a majority of the religious extremists (Muslims) from the Western world, especially from France joined the ISIS. In this context, oblivion on the part of America and Europe about ISIS recruits from their countries is questionable.

Taking cognizance of the grievances of the international community, and the sole superpower’s injustices, Russian President Vladimir Putin exposed the fake global war on terror—since September 30, 2015, various unexpected developments frustrated Israel and America. In this respect, Russian successful airstrikes on the ISIS targets in the northern Syria and Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, its coalition with Iran, Iraq, the Syrian army-the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Lebanon-based Hezbollah in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, retreat of the CIA-supported rebels and mercenaries after their failure to topple the Assad government, proving links of Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front and ISIS with America and Israel, Putin’s clear-cut statement, indicating the Zionist regime in the US and  Israel for their “phony war on ISIS” surprised the Israel-led America and some European countries who wanted to oust the Assad regime.

Taking note of these developments and some other ones such as reluctance of NATO countries to support America’s fake global war on terror, acceptance of Syrian refuges by the European countries, especially Germany and the EU rule to boycott goods produced in Israeli settlements on the West Bank, Israeli Mossad which was in collaboration with the vulnerable CIA operatives arranged terror attacks in Paris on the night of November 13, 2016. As part of the double game, these terror assaults were conducted by these secret agencies, particularly Mossad which was in connivance with the ISIS terrorists who used the home-grown terrorists of France.

French President Francois Hollande who declared emergency in the country, said, “It is an act of war that was committed by a terrorist army, a jihadist army, Daesh against France…France would act with “all the necessary means, and on all terrains, inside and outside, in coordination with our allies, who are, themselves, targeted by this terrorist threat.”

Israel succeeded in its sinister designs, Europe was put on high alert and Paris attacks were being taken as assaults on the whole continent. Afterwards, France started airstrikes on the ISIS targets in Syria.

However, owing to the irresponsible approach of Western leaders, far right-wing parties and “Stop Islam” movement in the West, especially in Europe are becoming popular by largely attracting their people. Amid a migrant crisis, sluggish economic growth and growing disillusionment with the European Union, right-wing parties in a growing number of European countries have made electoral gains. The right-wing parties range across a wide policy spectrum, from populist and nationalist to far-right neofascist.

But, some other developments such as criticism of the controversial Turkish-EU refugee deal by a number of human rights groups, Britain’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), after the referendum (Brexit) on June 24, 2016, prospects of Scotland and some other countries for separation from the EU, and the divide between the elite class which run multinational companies with the direct or indirect control of the Jews and the general masses who are suffering from multiple problems in wake of differences on the refugee crisis, Syrian war, Greece’s weak economy, violent protests and strikes against the labour laws in France in 2016 in favour of the employers at the cost of the employs etc.—the chances of European Union’s disintegration which will give a greater blow to the US-Europe alliance against Russia and a rift between the NATO countries, as noted in the recent past by the “Stop NATO protests” in Europe were quite opposite to the Israeli secret interests.

 Besides revival of the fake global war on terror, Israeli-led America also got the support of its Western allies (NATO) against Russia in relation to Syrian civil war, and as part of the double game and secret strategy, American jet fighters and those of its Western coalition started targeting the ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

But, some other developments—a rift was created on a number of issues between the President Trump and America’s Western allies, especially Europe, while failure of  CIA-Mossad scheme to promote sectarian violence in the Islamic World on larger scale, after creating a rift between Saudi Arabia and Iran, failure of the Saudi Arabia-led 40 countries military alliance of the Sunni Muslim nations, which was, in fact, against Iran and Yemen and visit of foreign minister of Saudi Arabia to Iraq on February 25, 2017 to reestablish cordial relationship between both the countries frustrated Israel.

 Besides, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took steps to improve relations with Russia and to join Russian coalition in fighting against militants and ISIS. After the failed rebellion-attempt of July 15, 2016, Turkey’s president Erdogan and top officials of his government have held the US and CIA for the failed coup to topple his regime by backing and replacing Erdogan with the CIA’s “designated figurehead”, cleric Fethullah Gülen, currently living in Pennsylvania in the US.

It is mentionable that the US-led West, especially Europe has already started a new Cold War with Russia. The US has decided to station permanently additional troops in Eastern Europe as part of NATO move to defend the continent against the presumed threat of Moscow. In response, Moscow also responded that it would send 30,000 Russian troops along its western and southern borders. Especially, Tel Aviv wants to intensify this new Cold War so as to avoid the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, as some European countries have been emphasizing on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop the expansion of West Bank settlements and restart a negotiation process for the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Even, backing out of his earlier statement, pro-Israeli American President Trump has opposed the expansion of the settlement policy of Tel Aviv, while emphasizing the solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue in wake of the debate between the Zionists and non-Zionist Jews  in relation to the two-state solution of the dispute.

Earlier, on January 15, 2016, France who is staunch supporter of the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue conducted a summit in Paris which was attended by 70 nations. In a statement, delegates at the summit also restated their commitment to the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and emphasized on them to restart negotiations. Palestinians welcomed the conference, but Israel called it “rigged”. The conference came at a time of rising tension in the region, and there were fears President-elect Trump’s plans to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem could stoke it further.

 In his speech to open the meeting, French President Francois Hollande said, “The international community had to be reminded of its obligations to build peace…the much-needed reconciliation between Israel and its neighbours can go forward”.

Besides, a prolonged war of history in Afghanistan by the US-led NATO countries, continued ambush attacks on their military installations and personnel by the freedom fighters (Taliban) have demoralized, particularly American military personnel who think that they have been sent abroad—Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere in the world to maintain the supremacy of Israel, instead of protecting American national interests or their citizens. The cost of the endless war in Afghanistan is rapidly increasing, adding to the plight of ordinary citizens of the US and its Western allies. In order to divert the attention of Americans and its Western public, Mossad-CIA are acting upon the secret strategy of the US and Israel.

Similarly, by pursuing the double standards of America in its worst form, Trump also intends to favour India, while opposing the nuclear weapons of Pakistan.. However, like Obama, Trump has brushed aside the ground realities that Indian Prime Minister Modi led by the ruling fundamentalist party BJP has been implementing anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan agenda, while encouraging Hindutva (Hindu nationalism).

As part of the double game, based in Afghanistan, operatives of American CIA, Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad which have well-established their collective secret network there, and are well-penetrated in the terrorist outfits like ISIS, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and their affiliated Taliban groups are using their terrorists to destabilize Tibetan regions of China, Iranian Sistan-Baluchistan and Pakistan by arranging the subversive activities. In this context, China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is their special target. Recent acts of terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s Balochistan are part of the same scheme. Notably, in one of the major raids Taliban killed more than 140 soldiers on April 22, this year on northern army base, located the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. And quite contrary to his previous statement and setting aside the ground realities President Trump wants to dispatch more troops in Afghanistan.

In order to divert attention from NATO’s defeatism in Afghanistan, at a news conference in Kabul, on April 24, 2017, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Gen. John Nicholson, the American commander in Afghanistan supposedly said that Russia was providing weapons to the Taliban. But, Moscow denied these false allegations.

And, through the executive order, President Trump on January 27, 2017 blocked visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Trump also announced strict conditions for the citizens from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon.  Although a federal judge temporary suspended the executive order on February 4, this year restoring travel for refugees and the people from seven Muslim countries, yet American President Trump stated that the executive order which he stated was part of an extreme vetting plan to keep out “radical Islamic terrorists—also established a religious test for refugees from Muslim nations, especially from Syria. Trump also ordered that Christians and others from minority religions be granted priority over Muslims.

President Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim order faced severe criticism inside America, opposition by 900 of the State Department diplomats and around the world, particularly Europe in wake of protest-rallies.

 US intelligence agencies, particularly FBI are still investigating that Russia and President Putin authorized the hacking in the November 8 US presidential election aimed to help Donald Trump to win it. Both Putin and Trump have denied the charges.

It was owing to these developments that Israeli Mossad with the assistance of its CIA and FBI sympathizers, while using ISIL militants accelerated terror assaults, as noted in case of the recent attacks in London, St. Petersburg (Metro train) and Stockholm.

Suddenly tension has intensified between Russia and the US with the order of the American President Donald Trump, when on April 7, this year, using the pretext of chemical weapons attacks and blaming the Assad regime, American warships fired 59 cruise missiles at the Shayrat Airfield controlled by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces. This was supposedly in response to the deadly chemical weapons attack which killed at least 100 people and injured 400 individuals on April 4, 2017 in Khan Sheikhoun town, located in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib, controlled by a rebel alliance which also includes a former Al-Qaeda affiliate.

Both Russia and Syria condemned aerial strikes in Syria as violation of the international law and the UN charter. In response to American airstrikes, Russia suspended a cooperation pact with the US aimed at avoiding incidents between the two countries’ planes over Syria by establishing direct hotlines between their militaries. Russian Foreign Ministry said, “The chemical attack was used as pretext for a demonstration of force.”

Some online sources confirmed that the “armed terrorist groups” supported by CIA and especially by Mossad are responsible for the attack of poisonous gases in Khan Sheikhoun.

 At the United Nations, Russia’s deputy ambassador, Vladimir Safronkov, strongly criticized the airstrikes what he called the US ‘‘flagrant violation of international law and an act of aggression’’ whose ‘‘consequences for regional and international security could be extremely serious.’’

On the other side, during an emergency session of the UN Security Council session, Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN said, ‘‘The world is waiting for Russia to reconsider its misplaced alliance with Bashar al-Assad…the United States took a very measured step…we are prepared to do more”.

It is noteworthy that America and its allies such as UK, Germany, France etc. who are determined to oust President Assad appreciated the US missile strikes. Some Muslim countries who support the CIA-Mossad rebels groups and ISIS terrorists also welcomed the missiles attack, calling it a courageous decision by Trump. Iran, which supports the other side of the six-year war, condemned the strikes, describing unilateral action as dangerous.

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu welcomed the US attack. Syrian rebel groups and ISIL outfit also appreciated America’s aerial attack.

 Hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets in cities across the US, as well as other countries, to demonstrate against the airstrikes in Syria. In London, the British anti-war campaign group Stop the War Coalition took to the streets of Westminster to protest the US airstrikes. In a message posted to the group’s Facebook page, the organization said, “The Stop the War Coalition condemns Donald Trump’s decision to launch attacks against Syrian targets…As well as deepening the tragedy of the Syrian people, this utterly irresponsible act threatens to widen the war and lead the West into military confrontation with Russia.”

On April 12, 2017, Russia vetoed a UN resolution condemning the killings, believed to have been carried out with sarin gas, and called on Moscow ally Syria to cooperate with an international investigation of events on the ground. The resolution was backed by America, UK and France who still want to oust President Assad, as part of regime change policy of the US to achieve Israeli illegal goals.

 Now, the US-led countries and Israel are manipulating the chemical attack of Khan Sheikhoun town against the Assad regime and Russia.

 Apart from the recent terror attacks in London, Stockholm, Paris, the chemical weapons attack inKhan Sheikhoun town of Syria was also false flag terror attack which was conducted particularly by Mossad in collaboration with the ISIS militants or the Syrian rebels groups to reunite the US and Western powers, especially Europe against the Assad regime. President Trump and America’s Western allies are still blaming Moscow and Assad government in this respect.

 In the meantime, no breakthrough has yet been achieved in the talks, at the UN-sponsored international donor conference which was held on April 4-5, 2017 in Brussels—the latest round of intra-Syrian negotiations which took place in Geneva recently. Some representatives of the US-led countries, including EU’s top diplomat held Syrian President Assad responsible for chemical weapons Idlib province, while, some emphasized upon investigation. Similarly, in the G-7 meeting,Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven industrialized nations who met April on 10, this year, divided in imposing new sanctions on Syria in relation to the chemical weapons attack, though America has imposed some new sanctions on Syria on some limited scale.

 Meanwhile, on April 17, 2017, Russia warned the United States against any “unilateral action” against North Korea, saying any response to Pyongyang’s nuclear activities should not violate “international law,” amid reports of potential military confrontation between North Korea and the US. Earlier, on April, 14, this year, China also warned America in the same terms.

 On the same day, North Korea, for its part, issued a statement which denounced what it called the Trump administration’s “maniacal military provocations,” including the deployment of the carrier group. The statement elaborated, “Nothing will be more foolish, if the United States thinks it can deal with us the way it treated Iraq and Libya, miserable victims of its aggression, and Syria, which did not respond immediately even after it was attacked.”

When American President Trump’s extremist policies were strongly criticized inside America and around the world, including especially her Western allies, his advisers, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, neoconservatives and Israel-backed officials directed him to implement dual strategy of Bush and Obama, with the aim to keep America and Western allies, particularly Europe united against Syria, Russia, China, Pakistan etc., while covertly continuing anti-Muslim rhetoric so as to safeguard the interests of Tel Aviv.

Hence, President Trump has softened his extremist policies. Trump voiced optimism that the US had successfully enlisted China to try to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program through negotiations. In a news conference alongside Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni, Trump also stated on April 20, 2017 that the US is committed to a strong Europe, though he didn’t say directly whether he prefers that the European Union stay intact.

Regarding Iran, backing out of his earlier statements, Trump and his top officials have been walking a narrow line as they seek to show an aggressive stance. While disparaging the nuclear deal and accusing Iran of fomenting violence and terrorism throughout the Middle East, Trump has avoided committing to abandoning the nuclear agreement, a move which would be staunchly opposed by US businessmen and European allies.

 Trump stated on April 13, 2017 that US relations with Russia may be at “an all-time low” and declared a new-found faith in NATO, suggesting the alliance was “no longer obsolete”.

 Despite this, the US president’s remarks at the White House followed a two-hour meeting in Moscow between his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and President Putin which failed to resolve any of the deep differences between the two nations on Syria, Ukraine and Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 US election. Bur, Tillerson’s meeting with his counterpart and Putin led to the removal of the most immediate threat of escalation, as Putin “reaffirmed” the maintenance of a hotline between the two countries’ militaries to avoid midair collisions between their aircraft operating in Syrian airspace.

 In the latest of a series of dramatic foreign policy reversals in recent days, Trump also dropped an allegation he had repeated throughout his presidential campaign, telling the Wall Street Journal that the Chinese were “not currency manipulators”.

 Following the dual diplomacy of Bush and Obama, Trump has also started double game. It could also be judged from the US State Department’s recently leaked documents which said that the Trump administration announced last month that it planned on reducing the diplomacy and foreign aid budget by 28 per cent in the next fiscal year, while increasing funds for military programmes and preserving Israel’s  current $3.1bn (£2.4bn) security aid package. The leaked documents proposed a cut in assistance for several countries across the world, but a 4.6 per cent rise for both the West Bank and Gaza.

In the meantime, results of the referendum in Turkey, held on April 16 went in favour of the Turkish President Erdogan, expanding his powers. It gave another setback to Washington and Tel Aviv who were covertly backing Kurds and ISIL militant against the Erdogan’s regime. The EU which has criticized Erdogan’s referendum earlier this month, which will also revive the death penalty would be the final blow to any chance that the EU could still let Turkey join. The warning from Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn came that EU will redefine its relationship with Ankara.

Notably, despite dispatch of additional troops to assist the ISIS and rebel groups, Analysts opine thatowing to the skilful diplomacy of Russian President Putin, very soon, Russian-led coalition will liberate Syria and Iraq from the hold of the US-Israeli-led some Western powers. Therefore, in the pretext of targeting ISI terrorists, in depression, Israeli has also started airstrikes in Syria.

 Nevertheless, like Trump, Israeli rulers have also been confused due to the above mentioned developments which do not favour Israel like the past, while, still some CIA agents, Indian RAW and especially Mossad want to divide the world on religious lines.

 Although President Trump has softened his external policy, yet he is implementing the conspiracy of Mossad and RAW, as his rigid and racist policies, including America’s Western partners continue against the Muslims. If not checked in time by the peace-loving Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Jews and Buddhists, these policies of the President Donald Trump who is particularly completing the extremist agenda of Israel are likely to result into more recruitment in the militant outfits, especially in the ISIS group, inspiring the extremist Muslims for more terrorism-related attacks. Israel, who will never accept the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue, will prefer to seek the final revenge by bringing about a major war between the Muslim and the Christian worlds or to cause a major war between Russia and the US-led some Western countries, which will convert the entire world into holocaust.

Nonetheless, various leaders and politicians of the West, especially those of the EU who are pro-Macron congratulated him in the victory of the first round of the presidential election. The US President Donald Trump, who had suggested the recent terror attack in Paris could have an impact on the vote, has not commented.

Unlike several of his opponents on the left and right, Macron has avoided making pronouncements against Muslim dress codes and discriminatory laws which are, in fact, being used in persecution of the Muslims in France.

Returning to our earlier discussions, like the train bombings in Spain, three days before France’s presidential elections, shooting at Champs-Elysees-Paris-famous Boulevard was conducted by Mossad through ISIS to ensure the victory of the pro-Israeli Emmanuel Macron in the first round of the election. In other worlds, Israeli won the first round of the French election.

Did The Deep State Postpone The Election?

I believe the Deep State postponed the election today, using Clinton’s probably staged “health event” as the opening act of a drama that will unfold over the next several days to few weeks. The Deep State is in the process of pulling Clinton out of the game.

The Deep State knows several things. First, they know that the polls they manipulate showing that Clinton is ahead of or head-to-head with Trump are deliberate, doctored lies. Image result for Deep State usaThey know that the true numbers demonstrate her campaign is disintegrating. This is reinforced by the fact that during her campaign appearances she plays to what are essentially empty halls, compared to Trump who routinely pulls in tens of thousands of standing-room-only supporters. Increasingly, the people realize that the polls are lies, and there is only so much further the Deep State can push them. The Brexit polls were total lies, too, and they impaled the establishment liars.

Second, they know that she is seriously ill, and that she will not be able to run a full-throttle campaign between now and election day; it will be physically impossible for her. Already, she has mysteriously disappeared from the campaign trail for hours at a time, and oftentimes longer. They thought they could prop her up through election day. Now they realize that they cannot.

Third, they know that Assange’s upcoming leaks are going to reveal her virtually indescribable dishonesty, greed, deviousness and criminality. They know that Assange has genuine information, and that it is going to be devastating to Clinton. She and her “Foundation” are complete frauds, and this fact is going to become totally inescapable, even to the most dimwitted and demented.

The “pneumonia” story will be used to excuse her coughing fits. It will also be used to get her out of the debates, during which she would be completely destroyed by Image result for once upon a timeTrump, particularly if she were not wearing her “earpiece” and getting talking points delivered to her by Abedin, who would simply be relaying the Deep State messages being conveyed to her, en route to Clinton. If Clinton has to go up against Trump in an honest debate, with no earpiece, she will be pulverized on her political record, avarice, physical and mental lack of fitness, and Foundation criminality. The Deep State will not allow tens of millions to watch that happen.

Clinton’s “health tragedy” (the “tragic event” of her health preventing her from becoming the first woman president, blah, blah, blah) will be gradually paid out to the populace over the next few weeks, and will be designed to induce the maximum amount of sympathy for her. The Deep State will keep her in the game for as long as possible, as they hope against hope that Image result for TrumpTrump screws up, or that perhaps something happens to him. If Trump’s numbers remain strong or increase, then they will pull her out of the game.

This will cause an election crisis. The election will be postponed.

Obama will pull the equivalent of a “pre-crime” maneuver, by extending Clinton and the Foundation “pre-pardons.” In other words, he will issue a Presidential Pardon for crimes the Clintons have not yet been charged with or Image result for pre-crimeconvicted of, even though they would almost certainly face such charges and be convicted of them were the election to go against Clinton and were Justice permitted to function. A “pre-pardon” would be a first, but it would be absolutely no different from the unprecedented, Image result for pardondictatorial Executive Orders emanating from the White House over the past many years. The Supreme Court could render its verdict 20 years or so from now, after both of them are dead. The money, by then, would be long gone from view, and supporting Chelsea’s royal lifestyle of the Rich and Famous.

The government needs to shut down the Clinton investigations as soon as it can, because the high tide of Clinton criminality washes into every orifice of Washington, D.C. and Wall Street. The Deep State is never in 1,000 years going to allow Christie to formally investigate such endemic, monumentally profitable State corruption.

The motive for the Deep State to postpone the election until it can re-group its wounded forces is simple: Looting. The Deep State is looting one trillion dollars ($Image result for one trillion dollars in cash1,000,000,000,000.00) per year from the U.S. economy per year, at an absolute minimum. The true amount is almost certainly equivalent to the GAAP-based national annual deficits, which are running at roughly five trillions dollars ($5,000,000,000,000.00) per year. The $6.5 trillion ($6,500,000,000,000.00) missing from the Army, as admitted by the government, is a drop in the bucket compared to the actual amount that has been stolen from the nation, and the people. It should be no wonder to anyone why the Middle Class has been destroyed; it has been looted into oblivion.

These looting amounts do not include the Insider Trading looting that occurs in the financial markets every single day, facilitated by domestic and international information flows from connected insiders to complicit, profit-sharing traders who operate in total obscurity, privacy and immunity, and who annually book hundreds of billions of dollars in profits at a minimum. Inside Traders can book $25 billion in profits in 30 seconds on advance interest rate change information, and those opportunities happen dozens of times per year, as one simple illustration. There are thousands of similar opportunities in any given year.

The Deep State seeks to keep the Perpetual Fountain of Money gushing epic amounts of lucre into its pockets for as long as possible, because the profits from the Perpetual Fountain of Money are far beyond a mere Fairy Tale, they are a Living Dream Come True. The Deep State is not going to allow anyone or anything to turn off its Perpetual Fountain of Money, particularly not Trump.

The postponement of the election will most likely extend for at least one year, during which new events will cause a extensions of the postponement.

Revelation of the postponement of the November election could be one Black SwanImage result for Black Swan financial that creates a dollar crisis. This might be why certain members of the Federal Reserve are now pushing for a rate hike in September, even though current U.S. economic circumstances make that idea absurd. It is probable that the Deep State realizes its machinations could create extreme, unpredictable and uncontrollable Forex volatility, and that they are attempting to pre-emptively head this off, or at least, ameliorate it.

The coming days will provide additional puzzle pieces for insertion into the mosaic, but needless to say, as a nation, we are in the most dangerous situation we have experienced during the past 50 years, at least. If people are not making serious preparations right now, they might come to regret it.
