Mainstream media pundits are now talking about “de-escalation” between Iran and the US, after “both sides have fooled everyone that they have achieved victory.” Is that how cheap the life of a man who dedicated his better days fighting against the Deep State controlled ISIS and Al Qaeda terror groups?Continue reading Butcher of the Worst Kind: The Deeper Story Behind Trump’s Assassination of Soleimani
Four decades of dealing with Western imperialist ambitions in the Middle East have taught the Iranians to rely on their own capability to repel future aggression by way of advancing its military capabilities. The short-range ballistic missile strikes into a US military airbase were not only successful, but also show precision, i.e. targeting only the equipment over personnel.Continue reading Satellite Photos Confirm Iranian “Warning Slap” Missile Precision

Donald Trump just crossed the red line when he ordered the assassination of the most respected commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani. This action will put all US forces at risk of retaliation from Iranian sympathizers across the Middle East and beyond.
Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), have been killed in US airstrikes in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
The IRGC announced in a statement on Friday morning that Major General Soleimani and al-Muhandis were martyred in the attack carried out by US helicopters.
The Iraqi pro-government group also confirmed the incident.
“The deputy head of the Hashed, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and head of the Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, were killed in a US strike that targeted their car on the Baghdad International Airport road,” it said in a statement on Friday.
“The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani,” said Ahmed al-Assadi, a PMU spokesman.
The group had earlier said that its public relations director Mohammed Reza al-Jaberi and four other members of the group were also killed after three Katyusha rockets struck a military base next to Baghdad International Airport in the Iraqi capital.
The media bureau of the voluntary forces – better known by the Arabic word Hashd al-Shabai – described the early Friday morning attack as a “cowardly US bombing”.
The rockets landed near the air cargo terminal, burning two vehicles and injuring several people, the Iraqi Interior Ministry’s Security Media Cell said in an earlier statement.
Shortly after the attack, US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that the strikes were carried out against two targets linked to Iran in Baghdad. The officials declined to give any further details.
Meanwhile, security sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP that eight people were killed in the attack.
The development came as the United States military said on Sunday it had carried out strikes in western Iraq against Kataib Hezbollah group, which is part of the pro-government Popular Mobilization Units – better known by the Arabic word Hashd al-Sha’abi.
Iraqi security sources said at least 25 fighters were killed and at least 55 wounded following the air attacks.
Senior Iraqi officials also condemned the US attack against the Kataib Hezbollah’s positions as a “violation of Iraqi sovereignty”.
Caretaker Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi called the move a “dangerous escalation that threatens the security of Iraq and the region” in a statement on Sunday,
Abdul Mahdi said US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper had called him about half an hour before the US raids to tell him of the US intentions to hit Kataib Hezbollah’s bases. He said he asked Esper to call off US plans.
Iraqi caretaker President Barham Salih also condemned the attack.
The US raids drew a wave of condemnation from officials and movements across the region, and triggered furious public protests outside the US embassy in Baghdad.
The Pentagon said the bombings were in response to attacks targeting American forces near the oil-rich northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk last week, which reportedly killed a US civilian contractor and injured four US service members, as well as two members of the Iraqi security forces. The US accused Kataib Hezbollah group of the attack.
Therefore, it is wrong for the White House to justify the assassination of Soleimani as a retaliation of the angry protestors outside of the US Embassy in Baghdad.
The Americans started the whole thing somewhere else.
Israel is an expert in starting a war by killing somebody that would provide a pretext for a US intervention. Trump only needs a slight push in favor of Israel, especially when it comes to Iran.
Soleimani was on a diplomatic mission for peace on White House’s invitation
Even more devastating for the Trump administration is the leaked information that it was a diplomatic ambush from the very beginning.
No magic intercepts were needed, we now learn from Iraq, to arrange for the assassination of Soleimani.? We now learn that the ambush was staged through diplomatic channels, drawing Soleimani to Iraq in order to receive an offer of reduced sanctions from President Trump.
General Qassem Soleimani landed in Iraq to meet with PM Adel Mahdi, who was to be given a message for Iran by President Trump. He was murdered instead, the diplomatic note from Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to the Iranian envoy, Soleimani, was, in fact, an invitation to an ambush.
Soleimani flew from Damascus and was killed as he left the diplomatic check-in at the Baghdad International Airport.
Iraq had been acting as intermediary between Tehran and Washington with General Soleimani acting as diplomatic representative of Iran.
Soleimani had been asked by the Iraqi government to organize and train the forces that defeated ISIS, a process that was continuing as it had been continuing in Syria in partnership with Russia and Turkey, as part of the Astana Coalition.
The actual assassination was successfully conducted with the real-time coordinates supplied by the Israelis.
Starting another war in the Middle East – is this Trump’s way out of the ongoing impeachment lodged against him?
We all know that Bibi Netanyahu was using the same tactic in order to survive an election, and the corruption charges filed against him and his wife. Is Trump following Netanyahu’s footstep, without thinking about the thousands of consequences for such an unprovoked action?
Or is this really the plan from the very beginning?… to create the need for the military industrial complex to come in, and shore up the price of “defense” related stocks in the market, where Trump himself has huge investments in?
The gamechanging entry of the Iranian Quds Brigade under the command of Major General Qassem Soleimani into the Syrian theater of war against ISIS invasion of Syria is one of his most stellar accomplishments against Israel and the CIA.
“You are witnessing what they [the Americans] are doing in Iraq and Syria. They are taking revenge on Hashd al-Sha’abi because it paralyzed and [eventually] eliminated Daesh, which they [the Americans] had created and nurtured,” the Leader said at a meeting on Wednesday…
‘Foreign spy services had hand in riots’
Ayatollah Khamenei also commented on the violent riots that hit several Iranian cities in mid-November on the back of a series of popular protests over a government decision to increase fuel prices.
The Leader said the people had some demands, but that the enemy quickly intervened to take advantage of those demands and commit acts of vandalism.
The people’s vigilance came to light when they broke ranks with the rioters, who were trying to hide behind ordinary protesters.
“The main culprits of the mid-November riots and the attacks on infrastructure such as gasoline storage sites, wheat warehouses and public property were linked to foreign intelligence agencies,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
On the first day of the riots, the Leader added, the Americans jumped for joy, but they became disappointed shortly afterwards as the riots came to end and they failed to achieve what they wanted.
The Iraqis and their government have since been working with the Iranians after realizing that they were just pawns in the “war of terror”, which only benefits Israel and petrodollar countries in the Middle East.
This Iran-Iraq security cooperation is part of a larger coordinated action against the Western Criminal Cabal that has been fomenting endless wars wherever energy and other rare natural resources are present.
Just a few days ago, a combined naval exercise was held between Iran, China and Russia near Iranian waters, in order to send a message that both Russia and China will not stand idly by while the US is demonizing and sanctioning Iran without cause.
Despite of this warning, the Soleimani assassination is nothing short of a US declaration of war against Iran, and it has Trump’s signature in it.
Is the US prepared for another round of Eastern Alliance multipronged offensives?
Others have understood this Trump tweet to be a conciliatory one, but we consider it in reference to the Nuclear Treaty struck during Obama’s tenure where about $70 billion Iranian money, sequestered during a decade of sanctions, was returned to the Iranians as part of the deal to stop its nuclear program.
Whatever the immediate gameplay is, it has been known that the Jesuit/Rothschild faction of the Criminal Cabal will never surrender Apartheid Israel to anyone. These people are obsessed with fulfilling the scenario described in their own scriptures that created the idea for a Greater Israel.
For such a grand plan to become a reality, the US Armed Forces will be at the frontlines, and just like in Nazi Germany, the Germans “knew nothing about what’s going on, while their armed goons were just following Fuhrer Hitler’s orders.”
Either way, they are all guilty by way of commission, i.e. killing the wrong enemies, and omission, i.e. by not doing anything to eliminate the Deep State scourge within their own government.
Twenty years ago a not very well-known Vladimir Putin published an essay “Russia at the turn of the millennium”. It was printed in Nezavisimaya Gazeta and at the Russian government website.

Julian Assange did the whole world a big favor by publishing confirmatory evidence of an interlocking system aimed at concentrating power into the hands of the Deep State. Yet, only a few of those who believe in free speech have the time to do something to pressure the UK to release him immediately for the simple fact that he hasn’t offended any laws of any jurisdictions.
Without his efforts, and of those who were working with him, all of our own analyses of how the world truly works, are still “conspiracy theories” from the eyes of the public.
In the meantime, UK’s Pedophile Prince Andrew is still roaming free,
… and so are the lesser known pedophiles in England, who have victimized an estimated 19,000 children in a year, and in that island alone.
Sexual Exploitation “Epidemic” in England As Nearly 19,000 Children Identified as Victims
There’s a new official epidemic in England and it can’t be tackled with increased hand washing or a new vaccine. In the past year, nearly 19,000 children have been sexually groomed, according to official numbers. But some say the real figure is much higher.
Five years ago, 3,300 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by authorities. That number rose to a shocking 18,700 in 2018-2019.
Grooming was not officially recorded as an assessment factor during referral to social care until 2013.
Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, told the Independent that the grooming of children “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in the country.”
“Too many times, government has said it will ‘learn lessons’, yet 19,000 children are still at risk of sexual exploitation.
The government has singularly failed to tackle this issue head on. Its approach has been piecemeal and underfunded.”
According to the Independent, the Home Office has begun an analysis of data regarding the cases and will use the results to inform new policy and prevention strategies, but the Queen’s Speech did not mention anything about a public review.
The Independent also reports that investigations into grooming gangs are ongoing throughout the country. In fact, abusers in Huddersfield have already been jailed.
Sammy Woodhouse, a victim from Rotherham, told the Independent:
“You hear this bullshit line, ‘lessons have been learned’, but they haven’t learned anything.”
Woodhouse, who isn’t surprised by the newly released numbers, helped expose a sandal in 2012 that involved the abuse of an estimated 1,500 victims.
“I still hear a lot about the authorities aren’t doing things as they should. It’s not very often I hear something good and for all different reasons—if the police won’t act on reports, people feel they’re not being listened to or supported properly, or information not being shared,” Woodhouse explained.
“I’ve said for years that this country’s in epidemic when it comes to abuse and exploitation. Authorities claim it’s under control but it’s not.”Source: https://themindunleashed.com/2019/12/sexual-exploitation-epidemic-in-england-as-nearly-19000-children-identified-as-victims.html
How could they control that when even at the heart of the British Monarchy, pedophilia exists?
Where is justice for all of these? Should we just wait until these pedophiles die without being thrown to the Belmarsh Category A prison, just like what the UK Monarchy is doing to Julian?
Assange is Tortured, Drugged and Dying in Belmarsh
Belmarsh is a Category A prison – the highest level in the UK penal system – intended for “highly dangerous” convicts and those likely to attempt escape, typically befitting murderers and terrorists. While Assange meets none of those criteria and was initially locked up for a minor offense of skipping bail, he was nonetheless thrown in Belmarsh and punished as if he were a violent, hardened criminal. He now awaits proceedings for extradition to the US.
The explanation may be as simple as taking revenge against somebody who dared to speak truth to power, Smith believes, and to make an example for anyone who might follow Assange’s lead in fighting state and corporate secrecy.
“What is clear that what is happening to Julian is much more about vengeance and setting an example to dissuade other people from holding American power to account in this way,” he said.
[Assange] delivered a discussion, a debate about what transparency should look like in the digital age… The debate got quashed it never really happened, instead he’s being victimized… That’s’ why he’s in Belmarsh.
Going forward, Smith said it will be important to continue pressuring the British government to answer a litany of questions about Assange, his treatment in prison and his health, as well as to push for an “independent assessment” of the situation. Confined in one form or another since taking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2012 and now denied the ability to defend himself in court, Assange should finally receive a fair hearing.
“This whole thing, really we need to be asking more questions. This needs to be held much more in the open… Julian has had his freedom compromised for nearly a decade now,” Smith said. “It’s completely disgraceful. This is bullying. He deserves better.”
It’s not only Julian Assange that’s slowing being taken away from us, but Chelsea Manning, too, who continues to defy Trump government’s wish to drop Assange for possible extradition to the US.
Chelsea Manning is being subjected to cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment, constituting torture by the US government over her refusal to testify against whistleblower website WikiLeaks, a top United Nations official has said.
UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer accused the government of torturing Manning in a November letter, which was just released on Tuesday. In the letter, Melzer wrote that Manning is suffering “an open-ended, progressively severe measure of coercion” which fulfills “all the constitutive elements of torture.”
Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, was arrested on May 16 after she refused to testify against WikiLeaks before a grand jury. She is still being detained at the Alexandria Detention Center in Virginia and is facing fines of $1,000 a day.https://www.rt.com/usa/477228-chelsea-manning-torture-melzer/
Unlike in most Hollywood movies, the enemy cannot be defeated by just the effort of one man. That’s fantasy.
In fact, that type of storyline is deliberate to make us wait for that “lone savior who will come and redeem us,” when all we need is to realize that we are powerful enough to defeat the Deep State if we can get our acts together, stop patronizing the system they’ve put in place, and be ready to raise the pitchforks when the need arises.
Let this 2020 be a year for persistent worldwide exposure and condemnation of the high crimes committed by the Satanic Empires of the West. This is the very least that we can do for these idealist whistleblowers, who have sacrificed so much for humanity, while most of the world are taking selfies – the very object on which NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is on exile, after warning us how our personal data are being collected for future use.
The final days of 2019 have seen dramatic steps towards reversing the era of British imperial division of the world into warring blocs.

In the time-honored tradition of Machiavellian statecraft, all of the charges being leveled against Donald Trump to remove him from office – namely, ‘abuse of power’ and ‘obstruction of congress’ –are essentially the same things the Democratic Party has been guilty of for nearly half a decade: abusing their powers in a non-stop attack on the executive branch. Is the reason because they desperately need a ‘get out of jail free’ card?Continue reading The Real Reason Democrats Are Pushing Trump Impeachment?
There is a component of the Western Deep State in every corner of the world, just like there’s a US military base in most of them. In Philippines’ case, it has them all, i.e. military bases in spite of the non-extension of the 1947 Military Bases Agreement in 1991, oligarchy controlling what were once government owned corporation or public utilities, and of course, the age-old Jesuit mind control infrastructures e.g. universities, and churches.Continue reading Duterte Plays Hard Ball vs Local Oligarchs and US Deep State

The purpose of ethnic cleansing is often misrepresented as being just a bigoted majority venting their common hatred against some minority, but it’s actually a crime by the state — that is, by the Government, the rulers — in order to get rid of enough of its opponents there so as to be able to remain in power ‘democratically’ — that is, by means of popular elections.Continue reading Americans Usually Support Ethnic Cleansing When Their Government Does
