Why Star Wars may help determine the winner of the next U.S. presidential election

Election Wars
August 2016AN ELECTION PUSHING US FAR, FAR AWAY – We’ve never seen an attack on a U.S. presidential candidate like we’ve seen by all the global forces aligned to keep presidential hopeful Donald Trump out of the White House. The lopsided war waged by the pro Hillary Clinton forces against Donald Trump is akin to something seen in George Lucas’ Star Wars. You know the familiar story, a small group of rebels, with heart and spirit, fighting the ubiquitous might of the Galactic Empire. Sounds like an outsider politician fighting the globalists, right? We thought so too.
To briefly revisit the story: The Galactic Republic, commonly referred to simply as the Republic, and later also known as the Old Republic, was the democratic union that governed the galaxy for a thousand years prior to the rise of the Galactic Empire. Queen Jamillia, of Naboo, who was aligned with the Old Republic said: “We must keep our faith in the Republic. The day we stop believing democracy can work is the day we lose it.” The Galactic Empire, also known as the New Order, the First Galactic Empire, the Order or simply the Empire was the government that rose to power in the aftermath of the Clone Wars, replacing the Galactic Republic. Central authority was given to Darth Sidious, publicly known as Emperor Palpatine, who was also the Dark Lord of the Sith.1
Now it becomes quite obvious just looking at the mythology of the Star Wars Saga that the Republic is the democratic Republic and the Galactic Empire or the New Order, is really the New World Order or the Empire of Global Governance. “The world is coming undone. Imperial flags reign across the galaxy,” says Saw Gerrera to Jyn Erso in Rogue One. “What will you do if they break you? If you continue to fight, what will you become?”

 TrueThe world is coming undone. The economic order is collapsing. Global debt is becoming an unsustainable part of more and more nation’s GNP. And despite the largest financial bailout in history after the 2008 financial crisis, banks have accumulated more debt, have higher derivative exposure, and are now offering negative interest on savings – and U.S. homeownership is at lowest level since 1967. The Middle East is in turmoil. Radical Islamic attacks are ravaging the Western world. The world is coping with the largest migrant and refugee crisis since World War II. Civil war is raging in Africa. Sectarian conflicts are spreading in Iraq, Sudan, Yemen, Afghanistan and Turkey. There is no end to the war against ISIS or in Syria. According to the Times of Israel, Hezbollah has 150,000 rockets it can fire at Israel. According to the Taipei Times, China has 1,400 missiles aimed at Taiwan.
Venezuela and Brazil are teetering on the brink of financial ruin. The populist uprising in the UK which led to BREXIT was a rebellion against the EU empire. U.S. national debt is approaching the $20 trillion dollar mark. Zika has created a global health crisis. Ne in three suffers from some form of mental illness. About Free trade has destroyed the manufacturing bases of every industrialized nation and created economic trade unions to help compete with the low-wages, trade imbalance, and slave-labor produced products coming out of Third World countries. China is threatening to go to war in the South China Sea. North Korea has vowed it will soon turn S. Korea and America into ashes. NATO is squaring off against Russia in Europe. Russia’s nuclear deterrent is now a grave national security threat to the U.S. because of a shift in the balance of power.

Imperialism

True: Imperial flags reign across the galaxy: The Age of Imperialism, colonialism, and hegemony is coming to an end. A world that is becoming smaller by connectivity, and where nuclear weapons proliferate, has no place for one or two lone super powers trying to control trade, foreign territory, everyone’s destiny, along with the distribution of energy and natural resources. As countries grow economically, their populations swell, and they increase their military prowess – the greater becomes the thirst and need for energy and raw products. Imperial flags reigning across the planet – surely is a reference to American Imperialism with its 662 overseas bases in 38 foreign countries, according to the Pentagon. Rival challenges to U.S. dominance by China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, or even Pakistan could easily ignite the next world war or worst, a nuclear holocaust.

Death Star

The Death Star – How do you destroy a country? Allow Central banks to endlessly print and lend. Pass free trade agreements that destroy domestic manufacturing jobs, and which favor high corporate profits through outsourcing and slave-labor in third-world countries. Form economic confederations and unions where countries forfeit their national sovereignty and the right to police their own borders all for the sake of having cheap duty-free goods made in foreign sweat shops. Enslave your citizens in deep debt which they can never repay just to go to college, buy a car, or own a home and then use psychological brainwashing to convince them this “nightmare” is really the “national dream.” Pass tax incentives to reinforce the negative behavior of “excessive borrowing” so banks can continue to reap the windfalls. Allow liberals to spend the country into oblivion and then somehow convince you the person, who opposes them and stands for fiscal constraint and responsibility, is really “the evil Dark Sith Lord.”  

SpectreIt is the dawning of the age of populism and nationalism. It is the little guy fighting with Rocky Balboa passion against the wildly over-confident big man, like Apollo Creed. It is Get Smart fighting against the evil global organization of KAOS or James Bond taking on the global tentacles of SPECTRE. It is Donald Trump sparing with his political rival Hillary Clinton in a knock-down-drag-out fight over globalism. In the age of big banks, bought-and-paid-for politicians, multinational corporations wielding political clout, and Big Brother government agencies with almost absolute power , it’s not surprising that rebels like Julian Assange or Edward Snowden have arisen to challenge the authority of the Establishment over its ever-widening veils of both surveillance and secrecy. Or that fictitious hackers like Eliott Alderson in Mr. Robot has decided to work to take down the world’s leading financial and data centers to free the people from tyranny. Or that Jyn Erso has decided to hack the computers aboard a Super Star Destroyer to steal the blueprint plans for the Empire’s ultimate weapon of mass destruction – the Death Star. The underdog, the rebel who goes rogue and challenges the mighty, brute power of the Global or Galactic Empire may be more than just the stuff of populism or Star Wars plot points, if Donald Trump can capitalize on its reigning sentiment, it may actually help him win the presidency of the United States.   -Alvin Conway 

The fight against Globalism: “Donald Trump isn’t a politician — he’s a one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment. We’re about to see the deluxe version of the left’s favorite theme: Vote for us or we’ll call you stupid. It’s the working class against the smirking class.” – Ann Coulter

The U.S. Presidential Election: Part 2 – The War against Donald Trump

Empire Trump
August 2016 WASHINGTON, DCDespite Donald Trump being the selected Republican presidential candidate by the same American democratic process that America pushes on every country around the world by economic threat, war, or sedition, there is an organized war in America led by the Globalist-Corporate-Military-Warmongering-Big Bank-Liberal-Democrats and pissed-off Republicans to unseat the populist choice for president. The following is just a sampling:  
“Donald Trump’s effort to appeal to establishment Republicans suffered another setback on Monday as 50 senior GOP national security officials warned in a new letter that Trump would “risk our country’s national security and well-being.”The signatories of the letter, which was first reported by The New York Times, all worked in Republican administrations, with many serving as top aides to President George W. Bush. They said none of them would be voting for Trump. –Politico

Attack 2 Obama

Obama Trump UnfitPresident Barack Obama offered one of his sharpest denunciations of Donald Trump to date Tuesday, declaring the Republican nominee entirely unfit to serve as president and lambasting Republicans for sticking by their nominee. The strong rebuke in the White House East Room came after Trump’s criticism of the family of a slain Muslim US soldier, along with comments that displayed apparent confusion related to the Russian incursion into Ukraine. “The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president,” Obama said at a White House news conference with the Prime Minister of Singapore. “He keeps on proving it.” The Trump campaign responded by going after the Democratic nominee as well as the President. “Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office,” a Trump statement said, listing a number of policy concerns. “Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi.”
Later Trump in an interview with WJLA said of Obama: “He’s a terrible president. He’ll probably go down as the worst president in the history of our country. He’s been a total disaster.” –CNN
Attack 3 RomneyMitt Romney on Thursday cast front-runner Donald Trump as unfit to be president and warned that his proposed policies would be detrimental to the country.  “Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished,” the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee said in a speech at the University of Utah. “His is not the temperament of a stable, thoughtful leader. His imagination must not be married to real power.” Romney, who ruled out running for president in January 2015, said the other remaining GOP presidential candidates are the only qualified contenders. –CBS
GOP Senator – Susan Collins said, “I will not be voting for Donald Trump for president. This is not a decision I make lightly, for I am a lifelong Republican. But Donald Trump does not reflect historical Republican values nor the inclusive approach to governing that is critical to healing the divisions in our country.” –Washington Post

Now we feel a person (who has never been a politician) that this many people want to keep out of a public federal office that this person must naturally be the most evil person in the world and that his opposing candidate is the real paragon of virtue and everybody likes them, right? Wrong. Hillary Clinton is more despised in America than Donald Trump ever could be. I mean when there are this many populist books out in a presidential year just about how liberals have lied, mislead and economically mismanaged the country, you figure there must be something to it:

Populist Books Nationalism

Careless HillaryThe latest numbers show that a full 53% of Americans view Clinton in an unfavorable light, the highest number in over 7 years for the former First Lady. Worse, her negative favorability numbers are a whopping 8 percentage points higher since July of this year. The Post adds:  “Almost twice as many having a ‘strongly unfavorable’ view of her (39 percent) as ‘strongly favorable’ (21 percent).” What’s even more surprising for the presidential candidate who wants to break the glass ceiling? Women don’t seem too fond of Hillary either. So much for the sisterhood. More women view Hillary Clinton in a negative than positive light, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. The poll found that among the general population, 53% viewed Clinton unfavorably compared to 45% that view her favorably. Among women the numbers were not much better. Despite women being a core audience for the Democrats, just 48% of women said they viewed Clinton favorably compared to 51% of women that viewed her unfavorably. The poll also showed trouble for Clinton when it comes to younger voters, with 50% of voters aged 18-39 saying they had a negative view of Clinton compared to 47% with a positive view. –Political Insider
Clinton Throws Colin Powell under the bus
Hillary Clinton told the FBI that her predecessor Colin Powell recommended that she use a private email account during her tenure as Secretary of State, according to a new report. The New York Times reported on the revelation Thursday, based on notes from Clinton’s interview with the FBI about her server that were delivered to Congress this week, and on a preview of a book about Bill Clinton’s post-presidential years. The notes from the FBI’s interview with Clinton, conducted during its probe of the issue, reveal that she told investigators that Powell had advised her to use a private account.  –CNN
Clinton Colin PowellTo the list of victims, common folks, and politicians left in the wake of that runaway bus of crime and corruption known as Clinton, add one more — former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Leaks emerging from the Congressional acquisition of the heavily redacted FBI interview with Hillary Clinton that took place in July indicate that part of the discussion with Democrat nominee centered on Clinton’s claim that she set up her private email server on the recommendation of Powell. Powell reportedly has no recollection of the comment, but did acknowledge using private email for efficiency’s sake in the darker ages before the use of email was ubiquitous and computers and servers more powerful. (Powell served from 2001-2005.) By the time Hillary took over the State Department had formalized rules regarding private email use for official business, which is to say it was prohibited. Regardless, according to Conason, Hillary had already decided to use private email before Powell’s alleged comment, the dinner party chat only confirming her decision, or more likely tucked away as a useful excuse for wrongdoing should she need it later, as indeed she did.
Of course, even assuming Powell made such a comment, he certainly did not have in mind that Hillary would establish a private server in her home, and Powell in his documented comments on the use of private email was clear to specify it was only for unclassified material. Hillary, of course, used it for both. And Powell didn’t operate a phony private charitable foundation to line the pockets of his family and a host of cronies during his tenure, manipulating American foreign policy to that end.  –American Thinker
Powell Claims Clinton lying about him: Speaking at Apollo in the Hamptons – a fundraiser for the Apollo theater – Powell said: ‘The truth is she was using (her personal email) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did (during my term).  ‘Her people have been trying to pin it on me.’ When asked why they might want to do that, Powell replied: ‘Why do you think?’ He ‘appeared angered’ by the Clinton camp’s claims, Page Six reported, but said: ‘It doesn’t bother me. It’s okay, I’m free.’ Clinton’s claims appear in her FBI interview, according to the New York Times.  –Daily Mail

The U.S. Presidential Election: Part 3 – Clinton’s dark trail of meetings and cash donations from unsavory power brokers

Clinton Foundation
Meet the Clintons- the Jim Bakker and Tammy Faye of American politics. Bill Clinton made $35,000 a year as Arkansas Governor. Hillary Clinton made $90,000 as an attorney at a local law firm. As public politicians, the Clinton lined their pockets by using their political office and clout to amass a family fortune that’s worth nearly $100 million dollars today. 
August 2016WASHINGTON More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press.
Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million. Donors who were granted time with Clinton included an internationally known economist who asked for her help as the Bangladesh government pressured him to resign from a nonprofit bank he ran; a Wall Street executive who sought Clinton’s help with a visa problem; and Estee Lauder executives who were listed as meeting with Clinton while her department worked with the firm’s corporate charity to counter gender-based violence in South Africa.
The meetings between the Democratic presidential nominee and foundation donors do not appear to violate legal agreements Clinton and former president Bill Clinton signed before she joined the State Department in 2009. But the frequency of the overlaps shows the intermingling of access and donations, and fuels perceptions that giving the foundation money was a price of admission for face time with Clinton. Her calendars and emails released as recently as this week describe scores of contacts she and her top aides had with foundation donors.
The AP’s findings represent the first systematic effort to calculate the scope of the intersecting interests of Clinton Foundation donors and people who met personally with Clinton or spoke to her by phone about their needs. The 154 did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives. Clinton met with representatives of at least 16 foreign governments that donated as much as $170 million to the Clinton charity, but they were not included in AP’s calculations because such meetings would presumably have been part of her diplomatic duties.  –Yahoo News

Clinton DoughMoney and corruptible influences: Hillary Clinton and her former husband President Bill Clinton, combined to earn more than $153 million in paid speeches from 2001 until Hillary Clinton launched her presidential campaign last spring, a CNN analysis shows. In total, the two gave 729 speeches from February 2001 until May, receiving an average payday of $210,795 for each address. The two also reported at least $7.7 million for at least 39 speeches to big banks, including Goldman Sachs and UBS, with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 front-runner, collecting at least $1.8 million for at least eight speeches to big banks. The analysis was made at a time when Hillary Clinton has been under scrutiny for her ties to Wall Street, which has been a major focus of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail. “What being part of the establishment is, is in the last quarter, having a super PAC that raised $15 million from Wall Street, that throughout one’s life raised a whole lot of money from the drug companies and other special interests,” Sanders said at Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by MSNBC.  –CNN

Goldman SachsIt’s all about the money – What did Bill Clinton, a former $35,000 a year Arkansas governor, care about the average American worker when there are millions in speaking fees and donations to your own charity to be made by doing the bidding of globalists, big banks, and foreign technocrats? “When President Bill Clinton signed off on the North American Free Trade Agreement and the General Agreement on Trade & Tariffs in 1993, otherwise known as NAFTA/GATT, he quite literally slashed the economic throat of the United States. We’ve been hemorrhaging jobs to foreign nations like Communist China ever since. Until 1993, the United States of America was the world’s economic king, and our people enjoyed the highest standard of living in recorded history. But NAFTA/GATT changed all that by virtually removing all trade protections that ensured our general prosperity.”  –Rense

Liar

Hillary Clinton is a globalist. She has been bought and paid for by foreign donors, big banks, and big businesses. Really; it’s hard to take anyone serious when special interest groups and foreign power brokers are pouring millions of dollars into your charitable coffers just because they believe in the bang up job you’re doing to save the world. Many other non-political affiliated charities could fit that bill other than the Clinton Foundation.
Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar. As a lawyer, it’s second nature for her to turn every statement upon its subjective head in an effort to shift your perspective of it. No one can believe anything this woman says. Her public record is a conclusive and definitive testament that she will tell the American public anything they want to hear just to get elected. She has no scruples. She is devoid of a conscious and ethics. The following video is just one exhibition displaying her pattern of habitual lying.

Hillary Clinton lying a warning to voters

Washington Times Quote: “America, you cannot say you were not warned. If eight years of a Clinton presidency were not enough to teach you about the slow-rolling train wreck soap opera of dazzling indifference, monumental selfishness, convoluted lies and shameless cover-ups, then just maybe you deserve to live with yet another monstrous mistake. Lady Hillary Clinton’s orchestration of a sprawling and fantastically dishonest cover-up of the terrorist attack on her State Department consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11 is a clear reminder of just how totally indifferent the Clintons are when it comes to their responsibility to the voters they serve, the people they command and the country they represent.
It is only when — due to their own ineptitude and recklessness — they find their own personal fannies in a pinch that they become truly engaged. And then they become supreme maestros of fantastic cove-ups designed to skirt (no pun intended, Bubba) their own responsibility and lay waste to anyone and everyone who dares to pursue the truth or question the Clintons or their motives. Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission in Tripoli at the time of the organized terrorist attack in Benghazi, watched in horror as the Clinton machine kicked into hyper-speed whitewashing the attack in which four Americans were killed. “My jaw hit the floor as I watched this,” Hicks told House investigators.  –Washington Times  -June 28, 2016

Nuclear Paranoia: ‘Bunkers spark fears that Russia is preparing for nuclear war’ Part 5

August 2016MOSCOW Russia is building large numbers of underground nuclear command bunkers in the latest sign Moscow is moving ahead with a major strategic forces modernization program. U.S. intelligence officials said construction has been underway for several years on “dozens” of underground bunkers in Moscow and around the country.  Disclosure of the underground command bunkers comes as Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, commander of U.S. European Command, warned recently that Russia has adopted a nuclear use doctrine he called “alarming.”
“It is clear that Russia is modernizing its strategic forces,” Scaparrotti told a conference sponsored by the U.S. Strategic Command. “Russian doctrine states that tactical nuclear weapons may be used in a conventional response scenario,” Scaparrotti said on July 27. “This is alarming and it underscores why our country’s nuclear forces and NATO’s continues to be a vital component of our deterrence.” Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon nuclear policy official, said Russia’s new national security strategy, which was made public in December, discusses increasing civil defenses against nuclear attack, an indication Moscow is preparing for nuclear war.
“Russia is getting ready for a big war which they assume will go nuclear, with them launching the first attacks,” said Schneider, now with the National Institute for Public Policy, a Virginia-based think tank. “We are not serious about preparing for a big war, much less a nuclear war,” he added. Additionally, Russian officials have been issuing nuclear threats. “A lot of things they say they are doing relate to nuclear threats and nuclear war fighting,” he said. “Active and passive defense were a major Soviet priority and [current Russian leaders] are Soviets in everything but name.” Russia is engaged in a major buildup of strategic nuclear forces, building new missiles, submarines, and bombers. A State Department report on Russian activities under the New START arms treaty stated in the spring that Moscow added 153 strategic nuclear warheads to its arsenal under the treaty.

Putin N War

The increase in warheads is said to be the result of the deployment of new SS-27 Mod 2 intercontinental ballistic missiles with multiple warheads and SS-N-32 submarine-launched missiles. In addition to new missiles, Russia is building a drone submarine, code-named “Kanyon,” which is said to be designed to carry a megaton-class warhead. Moscow also is moving ahead with a hypersonic strike vehicle designed to deliver nuclear warheads through advanced missile defense systems. A report by the National Institute for Public Policy concludes that one reason for the Russian nuclear expansion is to sow fear of Moscow.
“Russian leaders appear to view nuclear weapons as the ultimate way to make the world ‘fear,’ or at least respect Russia, and provide a political lever to intimidate, coerce, and deter Western states from attempting to interfere militarily against Russian expansionism,” the report said. Military analysts say possible U.S. responses to Russia’s underground nuclear complexes include the development of deep-penetrating nuclear bombs capable of placing Russia’s command structure at risk. Another option proposed by nuclear experts is to develop low-yield nuclear arms that could be used in precision strikes.
Few details about the new nuclear underground bunkers were disclosed. State-run Russian press reports have said underground bunkers are being built in Moscow as part of the strategic forces buildup. Russia’s Defense Ministry revealed in January that a modernized command and control system will be delivered to strategic forces this year. The system was described by RIA-Novosti as a fifth-generation advanced command and control system. Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Dmitri Andreyev stated that the new system, known by its Russian acronym IASBU, will use digital signals to send combat orders and control strategic forces.

Bunker Russia

“The fifth-generation advanced integrated automated combat control system is being tested at industry enterprises,” Andreyev said, adding that by the end of the year missile units will be equipped with the “modernized control posts and advanced strategic missile systems under development with IASBU sections.” The new system is being used with new SS-27 intercontinental missile units and will provide greater security so that orders will reach those units. “This will enable use of missile systems without limiting distances while carrying out maneuvering and broadening of options in choosing their combat patrol routes,” the spokesman said.
The new underground nuclear facilities appear similar to earlier construction for command and control complexes during the Cold War, one official said. Russia also continued building underground nuclear facilities after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The CIA reported through classified channels in March 1997 that construction included an underground subway system from the residence of then-President Boris Yeltsin outside Moscow to a leadership command center. “The underground construction appears larger than previously assessed,” a CIA report on the facilities stated. “Three decrees last year [1996] on an emergency planning authority under Yeltsin with oversight of underground facility construction suggest that the purpose of the Moscow-area projects is to maintain continuity of leadership during nuclear war.”
Construction work was underway on what the report described as a “nuclear-survivable, strategic command post at Kosvinsky Mountain,” located deep in the Ural Mountains about 850 miles east of Moscow. Satellite photographs of Yamantau Mountain, also located about 850 miles east of Moscow in the Urals near the town of Beloretsk, revealed development of a “deep underground complex” and new construction at each of the site’s above-ground support areas. Yamantau Mountain means “Evil Mountain” in the local Bashkir language. “The command post at Kosvinsky appears to provide the Russians with the means to retaliate against a nuclear attack,” the CIA report said, adding that the Russians were building or renovating four complexes within Moscow that would be used to house senior Russian government leaders during a nuclear conflict.
The CIA identified a bunker to be used by Russian leaders at Voronovo, about 46 miles south of Moscow. A second bunker located at Sharapovo, some 34 miles from Moscow, was equipped with a special subway running directly to it. The nuclear war preparations are estimated to cost billions of dollars, and raise questions about past U.S. aid to Moscow that was aimed at helping secure Russian nuclear facilities. –Free Beacon

Nuclear Paranoia: Russia’s new weapons of mass destruction and the short fuse to doomsday – Part 6

Putin Nuclear Arsenal
August 2016MOSCOW – Russia has developed a whole new generation of defensive systems and nuclear weapons that could obliterate the U.S., as part of its ‘blitzkrieg’ crash so-called ‘modernization’ program. The weapons have been talked about very little in the media here in the U.S., but most U.S. generals will tell you privately they are both alarmed and concerned about the new existential threats these weapon systems pose to the U.S.

TOPOL M
The missile can be operational in as little as one minute – making it virtually impossible for enemies to destroy the missile on the ground before it can be successfully launched. The TOPOL-M missile was designed to penetrate an American anti-ballistic missile shield by leveraging high-speed, a relatively small infrared signature during its boost phase, advanced decoys (as many as ten carried on a single missile), maneuvering mid-course capability, and maneuvering independently targeted reentry vehicles, of which it can carry up to six, although they are said to carry just one operationally.

The missile’s high speed shortens the time anyone can react to it, and every second matters when it comes to ballistic missile defense. The rocket motors were designed for a short, very powerful boost stage so that American space-based infrared detection satellites (SBIRS, DSP) have less time to detect and track it. Its decoys make it hard for radar to adequately track the correct target, and its countermeasures are said to have been upgraded to fool infrared tracking systems, which are use for mid-course interception. The missile and reentry vehicles’ ability to dynamically maneuver outside of their ballistic track makes producing an effective kill solution, or even predicting the TOPOL-M’s target, problematic. All these features come together to make a missile that is probably outside of America’s missile defense capabilities today, and the sheer number of them that exists makes the idea of defending against anything but a limited barrage totally invalid.

Doomsday

Russia is targeting every major U.S. city with nukes: Every single city in America is targeted by the Russians right now. “Twelve H-bombs are targeted on New York City alone. Every city in America is targeted with at least one nuclear missile. And Russian cities are targeted the same way by America.  And all this insanity is at the mercy of human fallibility too.”
And fighting with Russia is crazy.  Continuing to stock Europe with nuclear weapons pointed at Russia is like waving a red flag at a bull. It would be as if Russia was arming Canada with nuclear missiles aimed straight at Washington DC.  Not cool at all. “The Russians will fight to the last person to defend themselves, just like they did against Hitler.  –Counter Punch
Americans would have mere minutes to react to a nuclear attack: Americans would have about 21 minutes to seek an underground fallout shelter to survive a bout of incoming land-based Russian nuclear ICBMs, and could have as little as 5 to 6 minutes if those missiles were launched from Russian stealth submarines parked off the U.S. East or West Coasts.
Activists, however, are now urging the Obama administration to “de-alert” the nation’s nuclear arsenal. Instead of launching before enemy warheads have reached their targets, they say the U.S. should disable its missiles so they can be fired off only after the country has first absorbed a blow. General James Cartwright, who headed U.S. Strategic Command, said in 2012 (after he retired) that our weapons should be secured so that it would take 24 to 72 hours to launch them. Some want even longer waiting periods.  –National Interest, August 22, 2016

Putin Hitler

Russia Calls for all Russians to return to Motherland – Another warning sign? 
Putin has been quoted as saying that the collapse of the USSR was the geopolitical tragedy of the century. In this clip, he explains that he meant it not in the sense of an ‘Empire lost’, but that it was truly a humanitarian tragedy for the people of the Soviet Union. The collapse of the USSR created one of the largest diasporas that exist in the world today – 1 out of every 4 ethnic Russians do not live in Russia itself. Some analysts have even suggested that the numbers of those, who died during the 1990s and early 2000s due to political and social upheaval, as well as military conflict, rivals those lost in Stalin’s 1930s. The amount of those who fled Russia within those decades is estimated to be around 30 million worldwide. Of course, as people settle in new places, they marry into their hosting nations and have children who no longer speak the language. It may just be that it will never be possible to bring back the majority of those who fled, but if anything will – it is Russia’s continued rise and stability, in an economic sense.

U.S. moving some nuclear weapons from Turkey to Romania – closer to Russian border

Nuclear Tension Romania
August 2016 MOSCOW, Russia The US is reportedly moving nukes from Turkey to Romania amid rising tensions in Ukraine – and after a recent report warned that ISIS could steal the nukes in Turkey. At least 50 tactical nukes are stored at the Incirlik Air Base about 70 miles from the Syrian border, and according to EurActiv, the US is moving at least 20 of them to Romania, which shares a border with Ukraine. US officials have denied the claim, but recent developments reveal there’s credibility to the reported nuke transfer.
For one thing, Turkey is now considering military ties with Russia due to its deteriorating relationship with NATO. It seems to us that NATO members behave in an evasive fashion on issues such as the exchange of technology and joint investments,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told Sputnik, a Russian news outlet. “Turkey intends to develop its own defense industry and strengthen its defense system. In this sense, if Russia were to treat this with interest, we are ready to consider the possibility of cooperation in this sector.”
And the nukes stored in Turkey are at risk of being stolen by ISIS, according to a report by the Stimson Center. “From a security point of view, it’s a roll of the dice to continue to have approximately 50 of America’s nuclear weapons stationed at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey,” said report co-author Laicie Heeley. “There are significant safeguards in place… but safeguards are just that, they don’t eliminate risk.”
“In the event of a coup, we can’t say for certain that we would have been able to maintain control.” The US has already evacuated the dependents of US service members from the base, the report pointed out, so why wouldn’t the nukes also get transferred? Also, over the summer NATO performed massive military exercises in Poland, which borders Ukraine, indicating that the US is preparing for war with Russia.  –Info Wars
Nuke modernization in Europe: The United States is preparing to modernize its tactical nuclear arsenal in Europe. From 2020, it will start replacing the existing B61-3, B61-4, B61-7 and B61-10 bombs with the upgraded B61-12. As the TASS news agency’s military expert Viktor Litovkin told RBTH, the main distinguishing quality of the new model is the ability to control the explosion. Pilots will be able to remotely detonate the charge, depending on the task – whether the targets are en route to the enemy’s territory, on the ground or even underground. According to Russian observers, Moscow will not take any new military countermeasures in response to the U.S. program.  –UPI

Russia using Syria as training ground to test new weapon systems

Syria Killing Fields
August 2016MOSCOWFollowing the 2008 war in Georgia, Russia projected an air of victory. Georgian forces were crushed, and the breakaway republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia were bolstered. And in the aftermath, Vladimir Putin, then Russia’s prime minister, launched a massive program to trim the country’s bloated military, beef up training, and replace its outdated hardware. Two-and-a-half months into Russia’s air war in Syria, the fruits of those reforms are on display as Moscow ups the ante in the Middle East.
Moscow’s operation in Syria is still relatively limited in scale, but the Kremlin has been using the military campaign as a testing ground for new weaponry and hardware. In doing so, it is alerting the United States and other Western powers of Russia’s newly restored military prowess after decades of decay. “The missiles launched from the submarine were more of a political weapon aimed at Washington, rather than a military one aimed at ISIS,” Chris Harmer, a senior naval analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, told Foreign Policy.
The Rostov-on-Don submarine is believed to be one of the quietest in the world, making it an excellent tool for stealth operations. But Harmer said the use of such sophisticated technology, along with cruise missiles, are a curious choice given that Russian air power would be much cheaper and more effective. “There is no tactical reason for Russia to fire a cruise missile. They are using these to show the world that they can,” said Harmer.
The bombing campaign in Syria is being conducted openly, is heavily documented on social media by the Ministry of Defense, and is trumpeted on Russian state television. Soon after Russia fired 26 sea-based cruise missiles from warships in the Caspian Sea in early October, footage (which can be seen below) was shared across the Ministry of Defense’s social media accounts.  –Foreign Policy

Russia using cruise missiles and Iranian base: Russia flexed its muscles again over Syria on Friday, for the first time launching cruise missiles at targets from warships in the Mediterranean Sea days after beginning bombing runs from a base in Iran. Taken together, the new military moves appeared to be a demonstration that Russia has the ability to strike from virtually all directions in a region where it has been reasserting its power — from Iran, from warships in the Caspian Sea, from its base in the Syrian coastal province of Latakia and now from the Mediterranean.
The United States also asserted its military might in a new way, scrambling its aircraft to protect its forces, and those it is supporting, from Syrian government airstrikes. The Pentagon issued a blunt warning to the Syrian government after its warplanes struck a Kurdish-controlled region where American military personnel were on the ground. “The Syrian regime would be well advised not to interfere with coalition forces or our partners,” said Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman.
Talks appear to have stalled between Russia and the United States on a proposal to carry out joint operations in Syria against militant groups both countries consider terrorist. Russian and Syrian government airstrikes have intensified lately, with no progress on the horizon for a political solution to end the war.  –NY Times

Germany wants all of its citizens to prepare emergency supply kits in the event of a war or national catastrophe

Germany's National Emergency
August 2016BERLIN – (Translated) What if tomorrow could be war? Citizens should stock away emergency supplies. The federal government wants to encourage the population again for stockpiling, so that they in the event of major disasters or armed attacks, people can temporarily take care of themselves.  “The population is stopped, hold up a personal supply of food of ten days,” according to the “civil defense concept,” which is to decide the Cabinet on Wednesday. The reports the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS), citing the text, which has been elaborated by the Ministry of the Interior and the newspaper was present.
The federal government also asks citizens to store an adequate supply of drinking water. “The population should be encouraged by appropriate means, to own/first aid reproach two liters of water per person per day in not harmful quality to installation state individual measures for a period of five days,” it said in the concept.
This is the first strategy of civil defense since the end of the Cold War. Angela Merkle had been in the 2012 commission by the Budget Committee of the Bundestag. It was parallel to the White Paper on the nation’s security policy. As it states in the 69-page concept, “that an attack on the territory of Germany, which requires a conventional defense could nevertheless could create a life-threatening development for the future, in which the nation is not sufficiently prepared.”
In the appropriate emergencies, the following challenges are named. In an emergency, the population should be able to protect themselves before government measures start to ensure an adequate supply of food, water, energy and cash. The need for a reliable national civil defense system was also discussed, a hardening of buildings, and making sure the nation’s health system was able to effectively respond to large-scale emergencies. Civilian support of the armed forces is to again be a priority; including a system that can quickly modify or control the nation’s traffic network to steer combat units across the country when the Bundeswehr must relocate. (Added) The Bundeswehr is the unified armed forces of Germany and their civil administration and procurement authorities.
An important issue is also the survivability and protection of state officials. “Precautions are currently in place, in the case of an emergency, to relocate state officials to a sheltered place (Emergency Seat) so they continue the performance of their duties.” As the FAS further reported, this came out in an internal survey, that the measures currently in place are entirely inadequate. Therefore this issue will now be further discussed by the Federal Security Council. –FAZ

German Bunker

Going Underground: Until 1992, the state of Bavaria was to be governed in an imminent nuclear strike from this bunker.
Germany preparing for Emergency Crisis:  “Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days,” the newspaper quoted the government’s “Concept for Civil Defense” – which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry – as saying. The paper said a parliamentary committee had originally commissioned the civil defense strategy in 2012.
A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the plan would be discussed by the cabinet on Wednesday and presented by the minister that afternoon. He declined to give any details on the content. People will be required to stockpile enough drinking water to last for five days, according to the plan, the paper said. –Reuters

North Korea threatens to turn U.S. into heap of ashes with nuclear strike amid US-South Korea drill

N.Korea Nuclear Threat
August 2016NORTH KOREAThe armed forces of the US and South Korea  started a massive joint annual exercise Monday, a drill that has drawn North Korean threats of nuclear retaliation. North Korea will “turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through Korean-style pre-emptive nuclear strike” if the US and South Korea “show the slightest sign of aggression” during the drill, a spokesman for North Korea’s military was quoted as saying by the country’s state media.
North Korean forces are “ready to mount a pre-emptive retaliatory strike at all enemy attack groups involved in Ulchi Freedom Guardian,” he said, referring to the exercise by its official name. The exercise takes place almost exactly one year after North Korean troops shelled South Korean territory and only days after South Korea welcomed the highest-ranking North Korean official defector in decades. That defection, of Pyongyang’s deputy ambassador to the UK, caused North Korea to issue a statement calling the diplomat a criminal, with South Korean officials expressing concerns that North Korea might dispatch assassination squads to eliminate potential defectors abroad.
The annual drill will include 25,000 US troops, the bulk of which are already stationed in Korea, according to a statement by US Forces Korea. The purpose of the exercise is to “enhance Alliance readiness, protect the region and maintain stability on the Korean peninsula,” the statement said. South Korean President Park Geun-Hye responded to Pyongyang’s threats by saying, “The North Korean regime has been continuously suppressing its people by its reign of terror while ignoring the livelihood of its people.”

She added that the South would “prepare” for any possible North Korean provocations, in comments at a National Security Council meeting on Monday. North Korea’s threats come amid new concerns over the increased sophistication of that country’s nuclear and missile programs. “North Korea’s nuclear and missile threats are direct and realistic,” Park added. A US official told CNN earlier this month that the regime’s aggressive testing of medium- and long-range missiles — as well as its nuclear testing — makes North Korea now a practical” threat and no longer a theoretical” threat. “We obviously watch the situation very closely,” Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told reporters Monday. “It is an annual exercise. We have seen the rhetoric from North Korea, we have seen that rhetoric in the past, and of course we would urge the North Koreans to do what they can to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula,” Cook said. “That is certainly something we would welcome.”  –CNN

Hungry Venezuelans break into Caracas zoo and butcher a horse for food

Venezuela
August 2016VENEZUELAVenezuelans suffering from hunger and shortages in their struggling country broke into Caracas zoo and pulled a black stallion from its pen, butchering it for the meat. The crime occurred late last month, in the small hours of the morning at Caracas’ Caricuao Zoo. A gang of people sneaked into the state-run park under the cover of darkness and seized the horse – the only one of its kind in the zoo. The animal was then led to a secluded area and butchered on the spot.
Zookeepers arriving for duty the next morning, on July 25, found only its head and ribs left behind in a pile. Dalila Puglia, an environmental prosecutor, has been commissioned by the government to investigate. But the horse was not the first zoo animal to suffer the effects of Venezuela’s crippling food shortages. Vietnamese pigs and sheep were reportedly stolen from the same zoo earlier in July. Earlier this month Marlene Sifontes, a union leader for employees of state parks agency Inparques, which oversees zoos, said that 50 animals in the zoo had starved to death over the last six months.
She said the animals included Vietnamese pigs, tapirs, rabbits and birds – some of which had not eaten for two weeks. Currently, lions and tigers at the Caracas zoo are being fed mango and pumpkin by anxious staff to make up for reduced rations of meat, while an elephant is eating tropical fruit instead of its usual diet of hay, the union leader said. Outside the capital, the situation is worse. In La Laguna, a park in the western state of Tachira, administrators said they had to seek donations from local businesses to get fruit, vegetables and meat for the animals. “We are doing all that is humanly possible to ensure the zoo continues to function,” said Oslander Montoya, an accountant for the local municipality which handles funding for the zoo.
Three animals died in May at a zoo in Paraguana, on the northwestern Falcon peninsula, the director said. Staff there are planning to move a dozen animals, including vulnerable spectacled bears, to another park in the Andean state of Merida. The zoo’s six bears are currently eating just half of their required 35 lb of food every day. President Nicolas Maduro is struggling to hold his country together, amid looting, riots and shortages of food and medicine. His three-year tenure has been marked by a severe deterioration in the country’s economy, with triple-digit inflation, a collapse of the local currency on the black market and severe recession. The 53-year-old president blames the country’s crisis on an economic war waged by the opposition and Washington.
On Friday, Maduro raised the country’s minimum wage 50 per cent, making it equal to $23 a month at the black market exchange rate. Thousands of Venezuelans streamed across the border with Colombia on the weekend to buy to buy food and other basics as the two countries’ borders were officially reopened after being closed by Venezuela a year ago. He is currently attempting to fend off attempts to hold a recall referendum. A poll earlier this week by local polling firm Datanalisis showed that more than three-quarters of those surveyed disapproved of Mr Maduro’s tenure, while 93.6 per cent saw the country’s situation negatively. Only 22.1 per cent believed that Maduro should finish his term, due to end in early 2019. The opposition have called for massive rallies in Caracas on September 1.  –The Telegraph
