Haaretz Warns American Jews of Trump’s Downfall – by Gilad Atzmon – http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2018/8/26/haaretz-warns-american-jews-of-trumps-downfall – “Shalev dared to write the article every other political analyst has dreaded putting into words let alone text. ‘The name of the lawyer who implicated Donald Trump  in the commission of federal crimes is Cohen. The name of the publisher who has agreed to tell investigators how he turned his newspaper into a clearinghouse for Cohen’s payments to women is Pecker. And the name of the accountant who has been granted immunity in order to testify about the role played by the Trump Organization in Cohen’s endeavors is Weisselberg. The common denominators of Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg, beside their willingness to do whatever it takes for Trump in the past and their apparent willingness to inform on him now, is that all three are indisputably and recognizably Jewish.’.. If you wonder why no one in America was courageous enough to  write about Trump being betrayed by his closest Jewish aids, Shalev’s answer is ‘anyone who does so risks being accused of generalizing, if not actively encouraging anti-Semitism.’   But this is just the first stage in this saga according to Haaretz’s correspondent. ‘Somewhere down the line. The racist, supremacist and neo-Nazi element of Trump’s base is already drooling at the impending opportunity of enlisting disgruntled rank and file Trump fans in a battle against the Jewish conspiracy aimed at their idol.’ ”

RT Says U.S. Prepares New Bombing Raid to Topple Assad in Syria  – The U.S. Government is positioning weaponry for another bombing-raid to punish Syria for having Assad as its President – by Eric Zuesse – theduran.com/rt-says-u-s-prepares-new-bombing-raid-to-topple-assad-in-syria/ – “Actually, ever since 2012, the U.S. Government was actually employing Al Nusra, which was the name given to Al Qaeda’s Syrian branch. In fact, as an intelligence-analyst, Bill Roggio, reported and documented extensively throughout December 2012 (and I quoted from and linked-to extensively in an article five years later), the U.S. basically hired Nusra as its agency to train and lead the vast majority of the forces (all but the few who weren’t jihadists) that were trying to overthrow and replace Syria’s Government, back in 2012.”

Israel is building another 1,000 homes on Palestinian land. Where’s the outrage? – by Robert Fisk – https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/israel-settlement-expansion-1000-new-homes-palestinian-land-robert-fisk-wheres-the-outrage-a8504471.html – “In the week that Uri Avnery, the scourge of colonialism, died in Tel Aviv, the Israeli government announced a further enlargement of its massive colonial project in the occupied West Bank. Plans were now advanced, it said on Wednesday, for a further 1,000 “homes” in Jewish “settlements” – still the word we must use for such acts of land theft – and final approval had been given for another 382. Today, 600,000 Jewish Israelis live in about 140 colonies constructed on land belonging to another people, the Palestinians, either in the West Bank or east Jerusalem.”

The Daily Beast chimes in: “A NEW LOW”Trump Meets QAnon Kook Who Believes Democrats Run Pedophile Cult – Lionel Lebron said he got a personal invite to the White House—and took advantage to post photos and Q clues on social media – by Asawin Suebsaeng & Will Sommer – https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-in-oval-office-meets-promoter-of-qanon-conspiracy-theory-that-says-democrats-run-pedophile-cult – “Lebron is one of the internet’s leading promoters of QAnon, the pro-Trump conspiracy theory based on a series of anonymous clues posted to internet forums. QAnon believers have interpreted the clues, which they claim without evidence are coming from a highly placed source in the Trump administration, to mean that Trump and the military are engaged in a high-stakes shadow war against a supposed globalist pedophile cult. The conspiracy theory has caught on with Trump supporters, who have held up QAnon-related signs and wear QAnon shirts to the president’s rallies.”

From the Don’t-Mind-Your-Own-Business Desk: Corbyn, who sought Israel’s demise, is an anti-Semite. Labour must kick him out – by David Horovitz – https://www.timesofisrael.com/corbyn-who-sought-israels-demise-is-an-anti-semite-labour-must-kick-him-out/ – “And yet, today, all that has changed. The Anglo-Jewish community is deliberately making headlines like seldom, if ever, before. It is organizing marches and demonstrations. It is holding gatherings outside parliament. Its leaders are giving dramatic interviews. Its newspapers are issuing warnings and demands. It has moved out of the shadows and into the glare… And it is doing so because it fears that Britain may soon elect a racist and an anti-Semite as its prime minister.”

Whistleblower: It Was A Failed Coup, Mainstream Media Are Covering Up Phony DOJ Dossier – by Tyler Durden (actually Mac Slavo) – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-23/whistleblower-it-was-failed-coup-mainstream-media-are-covering-phony-doj-dossier – ” CIA whistleblower Kevin Shipp says that the mainstream media is laser-focused on the recent  Cohen plea and the Manafort conviction, both of which have nothing to do with “Russian collusion.”  He says this is because the mainstream media are conspirators and have nothing to do with real news… Shipp concluded that a Civil War in the making right now. ‘I think we are at the beginning of a civil war. You’ve got the ‘Dark Left’ and you’ve got the Conservative people, the Constitutionalists. In progressivism, one of its tenets is to change the Constitution, especially the First Amendment, and uproot traditional America. Whatever happens in November is going to intensify that. . . . Their attack is against Christians and the Constitution.’ ” – Taken from a video interview of Shipp by Greg Hunter, worth a watch (38 min): https://youtu.be/HyPb_a3bAF0

And one more from the Happy-Thoughts-For-The-Day Desk: Well that’s reassuring: Russian arms firm Kalashnikov unveils 13ft walking soldier which (allegedly) fires weapons from its claws (with video! 45 seconds)-  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6083021/Russian-weapons-manufacturer-Kalashnikov-unveils-13-foot-tall-walking-gold-killer-robot.html – ● Kalashnikov Concern presented the state-of-the-art robot at Army 2018 fair; ● The robot, which is called Igorek and weighs 4.5 tonnes, is still in development; ● A cabin behind the robot’s glass panels allows people to sit and operate the robot from inside – It’s funny, but I read a futurist novel a couple of years ago about robots just like this which were manufactured underground and used to try to stage a coup in the U.S.

10,000 tons of plastic trash enters the Great Lakes every year – by Matthew J. Hoffman And Christy Tyler – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6084367/Shocking-study-warns-10-000-tons-plastic-trash-enters-Great-Lakes-YEAR.html – ● Unlike in the ocean, ‘garbage patches’ do not form but it ends up closer to shore; ● According to initial simulations, much of the plastic is expected to sink – “One recent study found microplastic particles – fragments measuring less then five millimeters – in globally sourced tap water and beer brewed with water from the Great Lakes.” – Comment: Skoll!

Wikipedia: a Web of Deception – by Helen Buyniski and Gary Null – https://prn.fm/wikipedia-web-deception/ – “Wikipedia wants us to believe the entries in its “encyclopedia” are truthful, fair, and balanced. However, a comprehensive analysis of its nutritional articles reveals a plethora of factual inconsistencies and a clear and present bias against the very idea of nutritional supplementation. Even though almost every nutrient page admits most Americans don’t consume the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of that particular vitamin or mineral, the pages’ editors still categorically discourage supplementation. Wikipedia’s main article on vitamins declares that supplements are “thought to be of little value in healthy people,”1 adding “no clear justification exists for recommending supplementation for preventing many diseases” with vitamin D, so much so that “further research of similar design is unneeded in these areas.”2 That certainly sounds final.”

MSM Finally Concedes Defeat On Yemen, Ceases Blackout Of Coverage – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/msm-finally-concedes-defeat-on-yemen-ceases-blackout-of-coverage-1b774266dbfe

“If things go as I am hoping they will go, we will see more and more such populist hijackings of dominant narratives (like the outing of the U.S/British/Saudi slaughter in Yemen) in the future, and ultimately a failure of the oligarchs to continue manufacturing consent for their omnicidal, ecocidal, Orwellian agendas. We will have to be aggressive, we will have to be creative, and we will have to be interesting enough to catch the eye of the casual citizenry, but the fact that trust in the mass media is at an all-time low and our ability to network and share information is at an all-time high combines with the fact that we have truth on our side to create some very exciting possibilities. I find this all very encouraging.” -Caitlin Johnstone

Russia records unidentified helicopters delivering weapons to Taliban, IS in Afghanistanhttp://tass.com/defense/1018368 – “Russia has recorded flights of unidentified helicopters delivering weapons to the Taliban (a movement outlawed in Russia) and the Islamic State (a terror group outlawed in Russia) units active in Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday… The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also said that the Afghan security agencies, as well as the Command of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, did not react to those helicopter flights. ‘In this regard, the question arises – who is behind these flights, who provides weapons to the terrorists…and why is it happening at all, given NATO’s actual control of Afghanistan’s airspace,’ ”
David Horowitz: Visa, Mastercard Cut Off Payments to My Think Tank Based on SPLC ‘Hate Group’ Label – by Lucas Nolan – https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/08/23/david-horowitz-visa-mastercard-cut-off-payments-to-my-think-tank-based-on-splc-hate-group-label/ – “The David Horowitz Freedom Center stated in a recent email that its ability to accept donations by credit card has been disabled by both Visa and Mastercard following a campaign by the SPLC to label the Freedom Center as a hate group. This situation comes shortly after Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch was forced off the funding platform Patreon following pressure from Mastercard… The Freedom Center is the next target of the SPLC, and they are using Mastercard and Visa again in their attempt to shut down conservative voices. In an email sent to supporters, Horowitz outlined how the SPLC had convinced Mastercard and Visa to block the Freedom Center from receiving payments and donations via credit card.” – Comment: So the SPLC is now an Official Functionary of the Intelligence/Banking/Media governance complex. Technocracy is progressively (no pun intended) rearing its spiky head.

Details Of Ocasio-Cortez’s Ties To George Soros Revealedhttp://theduran.com/details-of-ocasio-cortezs-ties-to-george-soros-revealed/ – “But the link gets even stronger. Cenk Uygur, a member of the Soros funded media, founded one of the two political groups responsible for asking Ocasio-Cortez to run, Justice Democrats.  The sole role of Justice Democrats was to get “Sanders-like” politicians elected to Congress. Thanks to the coverage of the Soros-linked digital media provided, Ocasio-Cortez was able to gain traction and defeat incumbent Joseph Crowley in the primary June 26. She is expected to win New York’s 14th congressional district handily, given the district’s Democratic history, the Daily Caller reported.”

Experts Say Eventually EVERYONE Will Get a Microchip Implant – by Daisy Luther – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/08/experts-say-eventually-everyone-will-get-a-microchip-implant.html – “Here’s how it could go down: Some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They’re lining up for it. It if isn’t available to them, they’re totally bummed out… Certain folks won’t be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here’s how this could go: ● Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own “convenience” leading the way; ● Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped – sort of like it’s nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days; ● Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law… The push may be soft at first. It may begin with peer pressure in the workplace.”

Welcome To The Minority Report: Thousands Of Stores Plan Facial Recognition Use For Anti-Theft – by Aaron Kesel – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/08/welcome-to-the-minority-report-thousands-of-stores-plan-facial-recognition-use-for-anti-theft.html – ” ‘We don’t want to live in a world where government bureaucrats can enter in your name into a database and get a record of where you’ve been and what your financial, political, sexual, and medical associations and activities are,’ Jay Stanley, an attorney with ACLU, told BuzzFeed News about the use of facial recognition cameras in retail stores. ‘And we don’t want a world in which people are being stopped and hassled by authorities because they bear resemblance to some scary character.’ ” – Comment: Good luck with that…

Interesting: Indiana Dad Hunts “Russian Trolls?” (w/interesting video – 4 min) – by Gordon Duff – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/08/21/interesting-indiana-dad-hunts-russian-trolls/ – “What is avoided here is that what Russia is being accused of, Fox News does on a massive scale quite publicly, in fact, if Russia is guilty, they learned it from Fox News, which VT exposed long ago as a profit making Israeli intelligence organization tasked with destroying the United States.” Comment: what is the truth behind this piece of the puzzle?

Microsoft Promotes Russia Scare To Gain Insider Access To Campaign Information – by Moon of Alabama – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50089.htm – “Microsoft claimed that these domain names were trademark infringements of its office product, as well as of the conservative Hudson Institute, the International Republican Institute and the U.S. Senate. A judge agreed and allowed the company to seize the domain names. They now redirect to Microsoft honeypot servers. Any attempt to access them will be logged… Its public relation department held a press conference and managed to spin a scare story of a “Russian threat” around the seized domain names. It did not provide any evidence or explanation how the seized domain names might or might not be related to “Russia”. Journalists were pointed to a blog post by Microsoft’s president which includes some mumble about “Russia” and “elections” they could pick for quotes.”

Persecution of Maria Butina takes a nasty turn– by Seraphim Hanisch – http://theduran.com/american-persecution-of-russian-maria-butina-takes-a-nasty-turn/ – “…the 29 year old Russian gun rights activist was moved to a different prison without warning. The Russian embassy claimed that her new conditions are bordering on torture. The report of her incarceration conditions is frustrating and saddening to read: The Russian embassy in the US, which has been closely following Butina’s case, says she was transferred from her Washington jail handcuffed, without warning or explanation for the move. Before the move, Butina was subjected to a “degrading full strip search,” and all her things were taken away, including books, shoes, towels and other hygiene items… Butina was moved to a prison in Alexandria, Virginia, ‘and spent the next 12 hours in a quarantine cell with no food and all the lights on, unable to sleep. She will now be kept in ‘administrative segregation,’ which means locked up in solitary confinement – conditions bordering on torture, the embassy says.”

SYRIA: The Emerging Reality of the U.S Coalition Regime Change War – On the Ground Reporting – by David Macilwain – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/08/20/syria-the-emerging-reality-of-the-u-s-coalition-regime-change-war-on-the-ground-reporting/ – “Rather it appears that many in the West are entrenching their opposition to the Syrian government at the same time as millions of Syrians are confirming their support for it, and the armies that have fought off their enemies’ chosen alternative.”

US Support for ISIS: An ‘Open Dirty Secret’ That Continues – by Stephen Lendman – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/08/20/us-support-for-isis-an-open-dirty-secret-that-continues/ – “The Russian Defense Ministry said: ‘Americans peremptorily rejected to conduct airstrikes over the ISIS terrorists on the pretext of the fact that, according to their information, militants are yielding themselves prisoners to them and now are subject to the provisions of the Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War.’… ‘US-led “coalition’s aviation tried to create obstacles for the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in this area to safely shield militants of the Islamic State.”. ‘There is indisputable evidence that the United States pretends it is waging irreconcilable struggle against international terrorism in front of the international community, while in reality it provides cover for the combat-ready Islamic State groups to let them regain strength, regroup themselves and advance US interests in the Middle East.’ ”

$125,000: The Pension-Debt Each Chicagoan Is Really On The Hook For – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-15/125000-pension-debt-each-chicagoan-really-hook – “That $130 billion is the total Moody’s calculates when adding up the direct pension debt owed by the city government, Chicago Public Schools, the park district and Chicago’s share of various Cook County governments and the five state pension funds. Moody’s takes a more realistic approach to investment assumptions than the city and county governments take.”
