The Next Stage Of The Engineered Global Economic Reset Has Arrived – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/06/the-next-stage-of-the-engineered-global-economic-reset-has-arrived.html – “When discussing the fact that globalists often deliberately engineer economic crisis events, certain questions inevitably arise. The primary question being “Why would the elites ruin a system that is already working in their favor…?” The answer is in some ways complicated because there are multiple factors that motivate the globalists to do the things they do. However, before we get into explanations we have to understand that this kind of question is rooted in false assumptions, not logic… The first assumption people make is that that current system is the ideal globalist system – it’s not even close… For at least the past century the globalists have been pursuing a true one world system that is not covert, but overt. They want conscious public acceptance of a completely centralized global economic system, a single global currency, a one world government, and a one world religion (though that particular issue will require an entirely separate article)… The International Monetary Fund began spreading a meme a few years ago as a way to describe a global economic crash without actually saying the word “crash”. Managing Director Christine Lagarde and others started using the phrase “global economic reset” in reference to greater centralization of economic and monetary management, all in the wake of a kind of crisis that was left mostly ambiguous. What she was describing was simply another name for the new world order, but it was one of the first times we had seen a globalist official actually hint that the change or “reset” would be built on the ashes of the old world system, rather than simply built as an extension of it… Lagarde’s message was essentially this: “Collective” cooperation will not just be encouraged in the new order, it will be required — meaning, the collective cooperation of all nations toward the same geopolitical and economic framework. If this is not accomplished, great fiscal pain will be felt and “spillover” will result… …going by his associations alone, it is clear that Donald Trump is controlled opposition playing the role of “anti-globalist” while at the same time stacking his cabinet with the very same elites he is supposedly at war with. As I have outlined in numerous articles, Trump was bought off in the 1990s when he was saved from possible permanent bankruptcy by Rothschild banking agent Wilber Ross. Trump made Ross his Commerce Secretary as soon as he entered the White House, and Ross is one of the key figures in the developing trade war. I believe the next stage of the economic reset has now begun in 2018 and 2019. In this phase of the globalist created theater, we see the world being torn apart by the “non-cooperation” that Lagarde and the CFR warned us about in 2015. The trade war is swiftly becoming a world economic war drawing in multiple nations on either side. This scenario only benefits the globalists, as it provides perfect cover as they initiate a crash of the historically massive ‘Everything Bubble’ which they have spent the last ten years inflating just for this moment… At this point I have to say that anyone arguing that Trump is “playing 4D chess” with the banking elites while he is surrounded by them on a daily basis must be clinically insane. Every economic and trade policy Trump has initiated in the past two years has served as a smokescreen for the globalists controlled demolition of the economy. As the reset continues in the midst of the trade war, it will be Trump and by extension all conservatives that get the blame… …there is a globalist-controlled central bank in almost every nation in the world, including supposedly anti-globalist countries in the East like Russia and China. All of these central banks are coordinated through the Bank For International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The globalists covertly dictate the economic policy of nearly the entire planet. They can easily create an economic collapse anytime they wish. This is a fact… However, what they do not control is how elements of the public will react to their reset agenda. And this is where we find hope. They do not have their “new world order” yet, which is why they have to resort to elaborate theatrics and psychological operations. They know that an awake and aware segment of the population could annihilate them tomorrow with the right motivation, and so, they continue to distract us with a swarm of other concerns and calamities… The purpose is to convince the masses to focus on all the wrong enemies while ignoring organized and psychopathic elites as the root of threat to humanity. We are supposed to hate the Russians, or hate the Chinese, or hate people on the left, or hate people on the right, and so it goes on. But these conflicts are just symptoms of a deeper disease. The great danger is that the focus on globalists as the virus will fade from public consciousness and conservative circles in particular as the trade war becomes a world war and economic collapse results in financial pain.” (underlined emphasis added) – Comment: This is a crucially important article, worthy of multiple readings if you want to understand its importance in outlining what the people of the world now face.

US attempt to push Huawei from global market is the first sign of looming tech war – Putinhttps://www.rt.com/business/461306-us-huawei-tech-war-putin/ -“Putin added that attempts to monopolize a new technological wave by some countries impede solving the global inequality problem and will lead to destabilization… Despite Huawei’s repeated denials of the accusations by Washington, leading global tech companies such as Google, Intel, and Qualcomm, started cutting their ties with the Chinese firm to comply with the US ban. Huawei has already filed a motion in a US court to overturn the ban on its products, saying that it was targeted in ‘violation of due process.’ ”

Israeli army cadets train for takeover of Hezbollah-held Lebanese villagehttps://www.timesofisrael.com/army-cadets-train-for-takeover-of-hezbollah-held-lebanese-village/ – “Army cadets at the Israel Defense Forces’ Officer Training School this week drilled for the takeover of a Lebanese village held by Hezbollah in a future war with the terror group… The exercise saw a focus on cooperation between infantry, Armored Corps, Air Force and intelligence-gathering troops in identifying and eliminating threats in urban areas, Channel 12 news reported Saturday… It also incorporated battles against missile-launching cells and underground combat in tunnels and bunkers with hiding enemy troops…In a future conflict “we will not enter every village,” said Lt. Gen. Benny Aharon, who oversees commander training in the Armored Corps. ‘We will choose the targets we need to conquer and hit those places we know will help us defeat the enemy — the places that are its center of gravity.’ ”

NFL, Al-Qaeda Factions Attack Syrian Army Positions In Northern Lattakia From Turkish Territoryhttps://southfront.org/nfl-al-qaeda-factions-attack-syrian-army-positions-in-northern-lattakia-from-turkey-territory/ – “Militants of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) and the al-Qaeda-affiliated “Wa Harid al-Muminin” operations room launched a joint attack on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions along the Turkish border in northern Lattakia on June 9… A source in the SAA told SouthFront that the attack, which began in the early hours of the morning, was launched from Turkish territory. The source said that vehicles armed with heavy machine guns supporting the militants were moving on the border line. A salvo of rockets also came from the direction of southern Turkey… This new attack is another evidence of the growing cooperation between Turkish-backed groups and al-Qaeda in Syria. The deployment of these terrorists on the border line also raises serious questions about Ankara’s role in this cooperation.” – (emphasis added)

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with the RBC integrated newsdesk, June 6, 2019www.mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/3672964 – ” ‘You are right, the sanctions, which have become the hallmark of the US administration, a number of EU countries and other Western states – to which we were forced to respond and will continue to do so in such a way as not to do harm to ourselves – are clearly damaging everyone, including the US companies and companies from the European countries whose governments resort to these sanctions. But, despite the difficulties, companies are working and trying to find opportunities that are not blocked by illegal actions of their governments.’ ”

Auto Loans Hit A New Record: Monthly Payments At All-Time High – by Mac Slavo – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/06/auto-loans-hit-a-new-record-monthly-payments-at-all-time-high.html – “Credit-ratings firm Experian says the average amount borrowed to buy a new vehicle hit a record $32,187 in the first quarter, according to a report by CNBC. The average used-vehicle loan also hit a record high of $20,137. “We have not seen a slowdown in loan demand. In fact, volume for new and used loans is up from previous years,” said Melinda Zabritski, senior director of automotive financial solutions for Experian. As a result, the average monthly payment for a new vehicle continued to climb to a new high of $554 and to a record $391 for used vehicles, according to Experian… This is also unnerving considering there are so many brand new cars going unsold. People are buying cars they cannot afford, and, according to Zabritski, many are now leasing their car instead of electing to own it.”

Europe Has no Freedom But to Choose “Freedom Gas” – by Tony Cartalucci –  https://www.activistpost.com/2019/06/europe-has-no-freedom-but-to-choose-freedom-gas.html – “So discredited have US campaigns christened in the name of “freedom” become, that few scarcely believed the US was actually, seriously calling its natural gas exports “freedom gas.” However, it is not a headline torn from the pages of the satirical newspaper The Onion, but rather from the US DOE itself… In an article from the DOE’s official website titled, “Department of Energy Authorizes Additional LNG Exports from Freeport LNG,” the DOE states (emphasis added): ‘Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy. Further, more exports of U.S. LNG to the world means more U.S. jobs and more domestic economic growth and cleaner air here at home and around the globe,’ said U.S. Under Secretary of Energy Mark W. Menezes…”

Somebody’s Watching You: The Surveillance of Self-driving Cars –  https://www.activistpost.com/2019/06/somebodys-watching-you-the-surveillance-of-self-driving-cars.html – “ ‘ Self-driving cars will represent a new mode for surveillance. Through a self-driving car’s global positioning, system, navigational tools, and other data collection mechanisms, companies will be able to gain access to highly contextual data about passengers’ habits, routines, movements, and preferences,’ explained Luis F. Alvarez León, an assistant professor of geography at Dartmouth. ‘This trove of personal, locational, and financial data can be leveraged and monetized by companies, by providing a data-stream for companies to target customers through personalized advertising and marketing,’ he added.”

Boston Dynamics To Start Selling Creepy Robot Dogs – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-08/boston-dynamics-start-selling-creepy-robot-dogs – Boston Dynamics will begin selling its creepy robot dogs to the public “within months,” according to CEO Marc Raibert, who told The Verge “We’re just doing some final tweaks to the design” after “testing them relentlessly” – hopefully to obey the three laws of robotics… One Spot robot mounted with 3D cameras can map their environment and perform tasks such as track worker progress or identify hazards at construction sites. Models equipped with a robot arm can also open doors and manipulate objects… At present, several construction companies in Japan are testing Spot to oversee the work progress on sites. ‘There’s a remarkable number of construction companies we’re talking to,’ said Raibert, adding ‘But we have some other applications that are very promising — [including] in hostile environments where the cost of having people there is high.’ ”

US envoy says Israel has ‘right’ to annex parts of West Bankhttps://www.timesofisrael.com/us-envoy-says-israel-has-right-to-annex-parts-of-west-bank/ – “In an interview published by the New York Times on Saturday, Ambassador David Friedman said that some degree of annexation of the West Bank would be legitimate… ‘Under certain circumstances, I think Israel has the right to retain some, but unlikely all, of the West Bank,’ he said… Friedman, in the New York Times interview, declined to specify how the US might respond to unilateral Israeli annexation, saying: ‘We really don’t have a view until we understand how much, on what terms, why does it make sense, why is it good for Israel, why is it good for the region, why does it not create more problems than it solves… These are all things that we’d want to understand, and I don’t want to prejudge.’ ” (emphasis added)

Sovereignists of All Countries – Unite! – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/sovereignists-of-all-countries-unite/ – “What is, however, less known is that inside the US, the Neocons and their allies have been a prime force to dismantle the Bill of Rights, especially the First and Second Amendments… Today, I want to give a simple yet telling example of how this kind of stuff is quietly happening with very little opposition. And for that example, I will use the US state in which I am currently living, Florida… Check out this stunning sequence of events… …On April 29th Governor DeSantis and the Florida Cabinet met in Jerusalem (not a joke!) to proclaim their support for “the Jewish state” (sic) and declare that DeSantis will be the most pro-Israel governor in “America” (sic). The fact that holding that meeting abroad is a violation of Florida law did not bother anybody (except The Florida First Amendment Foundation which filed a lawsuit against this outrage). Neither did the fact that Israel is the last openly and officially racist state on our planet. Sadly, Florida is hardly an exception, two dozen other states (including Texas) have passed similar laws.”

This New Robot Will Take Millions Of Warehouse Jobs – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-30/new-robot-will-take-millions-warehouse-jobs – “The automation wave is expected to dramatically reshape the US economy in the 2020s. This disruption will impact the labor force and cause tremendous job losses. By 2030, automation could eliminate 20% to 25% of current jobs — equivalent to 40 million displaced workers, hitting the bottom 90% of Americans the hardest… A new report from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) shows how warehouse automation is starting to gain traction in Atlanta, the sixth largest warehousing space in the US… The new, robot-powered warehouse in McDonough, Georgia, is currently undergoing pilot tests and will begin operations in June. Project Verte, a start-up trying to compete with Amazon, is responsible for automating the warehouse.”

PA premier calls Trump plan ‘blackmail,’ says Bahrain workshop to be ‘born dead’ – Mohammad Shtayyeh claims Palestinians weren’t invited to Manama but wouldn’t attend anyway; warns PA could collapse within 2 months if financial spat with Israel not resolved – by Michael Bachner – https://www.timesofisrael.com/pa-premier-calls-trump-plan-blackmail-says-bahrain-workshop-to-be-born-dead/ – ” ‘These same people are the ones who have been working on the drying up of the financial resources of the Palestinian Authority,’ he said, referring to hundreds of millions of dollars in halted aid money and contributions to UNRWA, the controversial UN agency for Palestinian refugees and their descendants… ‘We know the political agenda,’ Shtayyeh said in the interview. ‘They are saying no to refugees. They are saying no to Jerusalem. They are saying no to two states. They are not respecting ’67 borders. And if this economic track is part of the overall package, what are we accepting? If we are there, people will use our presence there to capitalize on that.’ ”

Putin-Erdogan Agreement Falls Apart as Russians Realize That Arming the Turks is Insane – by John Helmer – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/putin-erdogan-agreement-falls-apart-russians-realize-arming-turks-insane/ri27186 – ” Just three and a half years ago, on January 20, 2016, the Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan had good reason to congratulate himself. He had successfully arranged a scheme of payoffs for two men who were intimate advisors to the presidents of the United States and Russia — at the very same time. They were Lieutenant-General  Michael Flynn, the National Security Advisor to Donald Trump; and Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Vladimir Putin… No one had pulled off the simultaneity before; but it was short-lived. Flynn was forced to resign after just 24 days in office and charged with lying to the FBI. He subsequently pleaded guilty and is now facing a prison sentence. Investigation of his lucratively paid lobbying for Turkey is still under way… Peskov remains in his Kremlin office, as he has for the past seven years. However, the Defence Ministry led by Sergei Shoigu and the General Staff headed by General Valery Gerasimov, have rebelled against Peskov’s line with Putin, ending for all practical purposes the terms of agreement Putin and Erdogan signed last September for a Turkish protectorate of Idlib governorate in northwestern Syria… The Russian Army newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star) reported that Idlib is now “a huge military camp”.  The Russian military command has responded by launching intensive air attacks and by covering new advances on the ground by the Syrian Army. Unsaid by the General Staff, unacknowledged by the Kremlin, the Putin-Erdogan Memorandum is a dead-letter. History is repeating itself.” – Comment: Helmer, the longest serving foreign correspondent covering Russia, puts the situation in Syria’s Idlib into the context of the Turkish genocides in the early 20th Century.

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine – by Steve Weatherbe – https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/a-mass-sterilization-exercise-kenyan-doctors-find-anti-fertility-agent-in-u – “Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government… According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine… ‘We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,’ Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. ‘They were all laced with HCG.‘ ” (emphasis added)

More Police Raids As War On Journalism Escalates Worldwide – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/06/05/more-police-raids-as-war-on-journalism-escalates-worldwide/ – “The Australian Federal Police have conducted two raids on journalists and seized documents in purportedly unrelated incidents in the span of just two days… Yesterday the AFP raided the home of News Corp Australia journalist Annika Smethurst, seeking information related to her investigative report last year which exposed the fact that the Australian government has been discussing the possibility of giving itself unprecedented powers to spy on its own citizens. Today they raided the Sydney headquarters of the Australian Broadcasting Corp, seizing information related to a 2017 investigative report on possible war crimes committed by Australian forces in Afghanistan… In a third, also ostensibly unrelated incident, another Australian reporter disclosed yesterday that the Department of Home Affairs has initiated an investigation of his reporting on a story about asylum seeker boats which could lead to an AFP criminal case, saying he’s being pressured to disclose his source.”

President Trump Calls On Syria, Russia, Iran To Halt Attacks On Militants In Idlibhttps://southfront.org/president-trump-calls-on-syria-russia-iran-to-halt-attacks-on-idlib/ – “On June 3, the President called on Syria, Russia and ‘to a lesser extent, Iran’, to strop ‘bombing the hell out of Idlib Province in Syria, and indiscriminately killing many innocent civilians. …The World is watching this butchery. What is the purpose, what will it get you? STOP’, Trump wrote… The interesting fact that just a few years ago, Mr Trump had a clear understanding of the real sitaution in Syria. Something seems to have changed since then.”

White People and Their Achievements Are Marked for Destruction – by Paul Craig Roberts – https://russia-insider.com/en/white-people-and-their-achievements-are-marked-destruction/ri27144  – “The Western world is collapsing so rapidly that I am afraid that I am going to outlive it… The Western presstitutes and politicians have demonized Putin, Maduro, Iran, and Trump to the same extent as the patriotic propagandistic Western court historians have demonized Adolf Hitler. But no one is as demonized as white people, and the curious thing is that it is self-demonization—whites demonizing whites.”

The Apparently Irresistible Cry of Anti Semitism – by Eve Mykytyn – https://www.evemykytyn.com/writing/2019/6/3/the-apparently-irresistible-cry-of-anti-semitism – “The few students who bothered to vote on the issue voted overwhelmingly in favor of the new society. 200 students out of the 600 who voted (the University of Essex boasts over 15,000 students) voted against the society. None of the news outlets that covered this story mentioned that very few students cared to participate, exaggerating the importance of the issue at the University. Apparently panicked by this lopsided vote in its favor, the student union cancelled the vote and authorized the society’s immediate creation… Histrionics prevailed in the Jewish press and among the UK’s Jewish advocates. Following the vote, the national Union of Jewish Students said the fact that so many people were against the ratification of the society was “simply shocking.” Apparently not constrained by facts, Amanda Bowman, vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews said: “This is racism, pure and simple. Those students who voted to exclude Jewish students should hang their heads in shame.” Of course, 200 students voted against a society, there was no vote to exclude Jewish students… Luckily for those seeking to extract revenge for the elusive sin of anti Semitism, they had an object for their wrath in University lecturer, Dr. Maaruf Ali. Ali opposed the society and shared a number of posts alleging that “the Zionists next want to create a society here at our University.” This quote was widely circulated as evidence of his anti Semitism although UJS is an openly Zionist organization.”
