Bannon to Name Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Leading Group Fighting ISIS as “Terrorists” – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – “The news comes amid emerging reports that the White House is preparing to list Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) – by far the most powerful national security and defense entity in Iran – as a terrorist organization… The proposal, possibly coming in the form of an executive order by the Trump administration, would prohibit any material support or other kinds of contact with the sanctioned entity… If issued, the executive order would create the first known instance of designating a foreign government institution as a terrorist entity. The IRGC is the guardian of Iran’s internal security and a powerful yet independent military organization that includes its own army, navy and air forces as well as special forces and intelligence units… Created by Ayatollah Khomeini shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution to safeguard the ruling regime, the Corps is said to comprise more than 120,000 active personnel. Throughout the past years, the Revolutionary Guard has been deployed abroad, including in neighboring Iraq and Syria, where it is engaged in fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).”

IDF fires on Syrian post after shell lands in Golan – from TimesOfIsrael.com – “The tank shell caused no injuries or damage. It occurred during reported clashes between Syrian government and rebel forces in the villages of Ufaniya and Hamidiya in the demilitarized zone… Syrian government forces were also shelling the village of Hamidiya with artillery… The IDF said it retaliated by firing on a Syrian army position, and identified a direct hit. It didn’t specify how it attacked the Syrian position, but pro-government Syrian media said Israeli helicopters attacked the position, causing damage but no injuries… Israel has repeatedly stated it holds the Syrian government responsible for all errant fire, regardless of the source, if it lands on the Israeli side of the demilitarized zone. However, in the past, the army has also noted that it “will not hesitate to act against any opposition forces in Syria.” (emph. added)

Prominent Republicans Pitch Carbon-Tax Plan to Top Trump Aides – by Jennifer A Dlouhy and Margaret Talev – https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-02-08/prominent-republicans-begin-push-to-tax-carbon-cut-regulations – “A group of prominent Republicans and business leaders pitched a tax on carbon dioxide to top White House aides Wednesday, selling the plan as an economic win that could drive job growth and yield environmental dividends too… Former Secretary of State James Baker and other members of the new “Climate Leadership Council” pressed the case in a 45-minute meeting in the Roosevelt Room that included President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior aide Kellyanne Conway… ‘The signs were very encouraging,’ Ted Halstead, who founded the council, said after the meeting. Two weeks into this new administration, we have positioned our solution as the most promising climate solution — if they want to go there.’.. Baker also met briefly with Vice President Mike Pence, as the old-guard Republicans try to persuade the Trump administration that a carbon tax imposed in exchange for abolishing a slew of environmental regulations is an insurance policy against the risks of climate change.”

from science.house.gov: Former NOAA Scientist Confirms Colleagues Manipulated Climate Records https://science.house.gov/news/press-releases/former-noaa-scientist-confirms-colleagues-manipulated-climate-records “WASHINGTON – U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology members today responded to reports about the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) 2015 climate change study (“the Karl study”). According to Dr. John Bates, the recently retired principal scientist at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, the Karl study was used ‘to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.’ ”

DPR Emergency Statement: Following Trump call, Poroshenko is preparing for total war – http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/02/dpr-emergency-statement-following-trump.html – ” The deputy commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Eduard Basurin, stated at an emergency briefing in Donetsk last night that Poroshenko is preparing to unleash a full-scale war and reject the Minsk Agreements… Basurin announced: ‘Following the talk between Poroshenko and Trump, Ukraine will in the near future cease to receive financial and military support for its terrorist operation in the land of Donbass. In connection with this, the Ukrainian president has fallen into complete despair and is ready to desperately commit to the most reckless action of unleashing a full-scale and bloody war in Eastern Europe.’ ”

New Elite Whistleblower from NOAA Smashes Global Warming Science – by Jon Rappoport – http://www.activistpost.com/2017/02/brand-new-elite-whistleblower-smashes-global-warming-science.html – “But Dr Bates said this increase in temperatures was achieved by dubious means. Its key error was an upwards ‘adjustment’ of readings from fixed and floating buoys, which are generally reliable, to bring them into line with readings from a much more doubtful source – water taken in by ships. This, Dr Bates explained, has long been known to be questionable: ships are themselves sources of heat, readings will vary from ship to ship, and the depth of water intake will vary according to how heavily a ship is laden – so affecting temperature readings.”

Please watch Clif High’s Feb. interview w/Greg Hunter (repost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h09Ztb7sTc ) to listen to his theory that the Trump election represents the victory of one group of insiders (he calls them Faction B) over the Neocon war-party (Faction A). Faction A have been trying to keep the U.S. population completely in the dark about our real origens and history, real science, our inner connection with source, essentially anything that might lead to our liberation from their debt slavery system. NOT that Faction B want us to be truly free, mind you. But, in Clif’s view, they at least want us to have sufficient freedom and access to new, high-value technologies to be able to build a society that can function and survive.
