Russia and China Are Containing the US to Reshape the World Order

China and Russia are leading this historic transition while being careful to avoid direct war with the United States.

Fortunately the world today is very different from that of 2003, Washington’s decrees are less effective in determining the world order. But in spite of this new, more balanced division of power amongst several powers, Washington appears ever more aggressive towards allies and enemies alike, regardless of which US president is in office.

China and Russia are leading this historic transition while being careful to avoid direct war with the United States. To succeed in this endeavor, they use a hybrid strategy involving diplomacy, military support to allies, and economic guarantees to countries under Washington’s attack.

The United States considers the whole planet its playground. Its military and political doctrine is based on the concept of liberal hegemony, as explained by political scientist John Mearsheimer. This imperialistic attitude has, over time, created a coordinated and semi-official front of countries resisting this liberal hegemony. The recent events in Venezuela indicate why cooperation between these counter-hegemonic countries is essential to accelerating the transition from a unipolar to a multipolar reality, where the damage US imperialism is able to bring about is diminished.

Moscow and Beijing lead the world by hindering Washington

Moscow and Beijing, following a complex relationship from the period of the Cold War, have managed to achieve a confluence of interests in their grand objectives over the coming years. The understanding they have come to mainly revolves around stemming the chaos Washington has unleashed on the world.

The guiding principle of the US military-intelligence apparatus is that if a country cannot be controlled (such as Iraq following the 2003 invasion), then it has to be destroyed in order to save it from falling into Sino-Russian camp. This is what the United States has attempted to do with Syria, and what it intends to do with Venezuela.

The Middle East is an area that has drawn global attention for some time, with Washington clearly interested in supporting its Israeli and Saudi allies in the region. Israel pursues a foreign policy aimed at dismantling the Iranian and Syrian states. Saudi Arabia also pursues a similar strategy against Iran and Syria, in addition to fueling a rift within the Arab world stemming from its differences with Qatar.

The foreign-policy decisions of Israel and Saudi Arabia have been supported by Washington for decades, for two very specific reasons: the influence of the Israel lobby in the US, and the need to ensure that Saudi Arabia and the OPEC countries sell oil in US dollars, thereby preserving the role of the US dollar as the global reserve currency.

The US dollar remaining the global reserve currency is essential to Washington being able to maintain her role as superpower and is crucial to her hybrid strategy against her geopolitical rivals. Sanctions are a good example of how Washington uses the global financial and economic system, based on the US dollar, as a weapon against her enemies. In the case of the Middle East, Iran is the main target, with sanctions aimed at preventing the Islamic Republic from trading on foreign banking systems. Washington has vetoed Syria’s ability to procure contracts to reconstruct the country, with European companies being threatened that they risk no longer being able to work in the US if they accept to work in Syria.

Beijing and Moscow have a clear diplomatic strategy, jointly rejecting countless motions advanced by the US, the UK and France at the United Nations Security Council condemning Iran and Syria. On the military front, Russia continues her presence in Syria. China’s economic efforts, although not yet fully visible in Syria and Iran, will be the essential part of reviving these countries destroyed by years of war inflicted by Washington and her allies.

Who writes this trash? Do they actually believe this drivel?? The US hasn't lost a centimeter in its position among the leaders of the world. Nukes and over $20T in high tech weaponry (where do you think a lot of that black ops money 'misplaced but the Pentagon' went?) saying the US, with Trump at the helm, is now as feared and respected as it ever was.

Judicial Watch Sues for ‘Coup’ Documents

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Top DOJ Officials considered asking Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment in order to remove President Trump and discussed recording meetings with him

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for all records of communication of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the Office of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, or the Office of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussing the 25th Amendment or presidential fitness. Additionally, the lawsuit seeks all recordings made by any official in the Office of the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General of meetings in the Executive Office of the President or Vice President.

The suit was filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to three separate FOIA requests dated September 21, 2018 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:19-cv-00388)). The lawsuit seeks all written and audio/visual records of any FBI/DOJ discussions regarding the 25th Amendment and plans to secretly record President Trump in the Oval Office.

On February 14, 2019, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe stated in an interview with CBS that “there were conversations about the possibility of removing Trump under the 25th Amendment and confirming that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had offered to wear a wire around the president.”

After President Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey, reportedly top DOJ officials discussed whether to recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

President Trump recently tweeted: “The biggest abuse of power and corruption scandal in our history, and it’s much worse than we thought. Andrew McCabe (FBI) admitted to plotting a coup (government overthrow) when he was serving in the FBI, before he was fired for lying & leaking.”

It was reported in September 2018 that Deputy Attorney General, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested that he secretly record President Trump in the White House in an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment and have President Trump removed. Judicial Watch’s immediate follow-up FOIA requests were ignored.

“It is no surprise that we are facing an immense cover-up of senior FBI and DOJ leadership discussions to pursue a seditious coup against President Trump,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This effort to overthrow President Trump is a fundamental threat to our constitutional republic so Judicial Watch will do everything it can in the courts to expose everything possible about this lawlessness.”

McCabe: Lisa Page, Peter Strzok ‘Good People Who Served This Country Well’

During an interview with NBC News’ “Today,” former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe defended former colleagues Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, saying the two are “good people who served this country well.”

Although text messages revealed the two alleged lovers bashed now-President Donald Trump, McCabe said he never saw “clear bias against the president” from them or anybody else within the FBI in the Hillary Clinton email investigation or the Russia investigation.

“Not once, not from Lisa Page, not from Pete Strzok, and not from anybody else on that team,” McCabe told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie.

“Lisa Page and Pete Strzok are good people who served this country well,” he added. “They made some poor decisions in their private lives and in terms of the communications they exchanged with each other that’s brought incredible grief and scrutiny on the FBI. I’m sure they regret that, but good people make bad decisions every day.”

McCabe Refuses to Answer Question About Lying Under Oath, Cites ‘Ongoing Legal Issues’

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared Monday on NPR’s “Morning Edition” to discuss his firing from the Bureau and the investigation into leaking information to The Wall Street Journal.

NPR host Steve Inskeep asked McCabe multiple times about the investigation and lying under oath, which McCabe dodged each time by blaming the “ongoing legal issues” that he is “handling.”

Of course he'd say that, because he has the same bias' as they do. Therefore he's incapable of seeing theirs.

Red Flag Rules Spark 2A Revolution?

The Democrat majorities may push gun control bills through legislature, but a growing number of counties aren’t standing for it.

By: Sarah CowgillFebruary 24, 2019Articles, Gun Control, Second Amendment2

Washington, by all accounts, is a bastion of leftist politics and policies. All except for the small town of Republic, near the Canadian border. The state recently passed sweeping and restrictive firearms legislation, but Republic Mayor Elbert Koontz has declared his city to be a gun sanctuary. “Everybody in Republic has a gun. We don’t have a giant crime rate because nobody in their right mind would come to a house where people have guns and know how to use them.”

His police chief, Loren Culp, agreed, “I felt it was such a blatant disregard for constitutional rights that I felt like I had no choice but to stand up for the people that I served, and that’s the citizens of the Republic.”

Similar hold out counties and municipalities are sprinkled throughout the country, but two states are leading the nation in taking back control — Illinois and New Mexico. At least 39 out of 102 counties in liberal-controlled Illinois have passed Second Amendment resolutions — a warning to the state lawmakers continually attempting to infringe on the right to bear arms.

The state of New Mexico is also under the control of a Democrat super majority. But after the swearing in of the latest Swamp controlled politician, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and the immediate and readied punitive proposed legislation on her “rocket docket” was the “shot heard round the world” in the Land of Enchantment. In six short weeks, thousands of New Mexican patriots organized and began the process of passing Second Amendment Resolutions at the county level – all but three at last count.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Exposes Bill Gates & His Relationship With Big Pharma

Bill Gates is fond of using his bully pulpit to talk about “miracles” and “magic.” Gates has featured one or both words in nearly all of his annual wrap-up letters for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017), most often in reference to the Gates Foundation’s outsized financial and ideological support for global vaccine programs. As Gates says, “In the same way that during my Microsoft career I talked about the magic of software, I now spend my time talking about the magic of vaccines.”

Gates’s words give us an immediate clue that he is engaging in his own brand of magical thinking—which social scientists define as “illogical causal reasoning.” How else to explain his simplistic endorsement of vaccines as a miraculous intervention with unmitigated benefits and no down side? The Gates Foundation’s global spreadsheet appears to have no room to tally the massive flood of vaccine injuries afflicting children worldwide, despite abundant evidence that this damage is standing the vaccine risk-benefit calculus on its head and turning childhood into an extended round of Russian roulette.

Let’s Report History Accurately

In a widely cited 2014 blog post on the “miracle of vaccines,” Gates expressed enthusiasm about the “inspiring” data on vaccines and the “fantastic” and “phenomenal” progress being made to expand vaccine coverage. There is one major problem with Gates’ professed reliance on “data,” which is that the philanthropist ignores fundamental historical facts governing infectious disease and vaccine timelines.

There is one major problem with Gates’ professed reliance on “data,” which is that the philanthropist ignores fundamental historical facts governing infectious disease and vaccine timelines.

Vital statistics data reveal that in the U.S. and elsewhere, fatalities from diseases such as scarlet fever—in the absence of any vaccine—had become quite rare by the mid-20th century. Mortality from infectious diseases such as measles and whooping cough (pertussis) also had declined rapidly, well before the introduction of the corresponding vaccines (see Figure 1). A meticulous review of U.S. mortality data from 1900–1973 concluded:

“Medical measures [such as vaccines] contributed little to the overall decline in mortality in the United States since about 1900—having in many instances been introduced several decades after a marked decline had already set in.”

Diamond and Silk: Trump Did More for Blacks than ‘Any Other President’

Diamond and Silk— who currently have more than 1 million Twitter followers and 1.7 million Facebook page followers— became famous on social media by being some of President Trump’s earliest supporters, creating viral YouTube videos in support of the president.

The duo had supported Trump since 2015 before the Republican primaries were in full swing, the Daily Mail reported.

By December 2015, the two sisters appeared on stage with Trump at a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina, when he was still considered a longshot candidate.

Both women are former Democrats who backed Trump and urged black Americans voting for Democrats to leave the Democratic Party.

Once Trump became president, Diamond and Silk became regulars on Fox News programs like Hannity and Fox & Friends.

The president reportedly told a senior aide that he liked how the duo defended him on television so much that he considered them de facto “senior economic advisers,” according to a March 2018 report from the Daily Beast.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims recent move explains address questions

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., scrambled Sunday to explain why neighbors at her listed Bronx address never saw her there — and ended up claiming she recently relocated to a larger place nearby.

The day after The Post reported that residents said they had never seen her around — and she ducked questions about it after an appearance — her spokesman said the Democratic freshman congresswoman now lives with her boyfriend in a two-bedroom apartment “a block and a half away.’’

The pair relocated there earlier this month, he said.

“She lives in the same neighborhood she’s lived in for years,” said the spokesman, Corbin Trent. “She is not living in the exact same condo.’’

The recent move still didn’t explain why residents at her previous digs — a one-bedroom Bronx condo owned by her mom — insisted they had never seen her there.

U.S. reps and senators are required to have a residence in their home districts.

Trent claimed that Ocasio-Cortez, 29, was at her new home Sunday afternoon, although he wouldn’t identify the address.

Ocasio-Cortez, a former bartender-turned-progressive pacesetter, literally ducked questions about her residence after an appearance Saturday in Queens. She told The Post to wait for her to pose for a photograph — then slipped out a back door and into a waiting SUV.

Ocasio-Cortez previously claimed that she has lived since 2011 in a mortgage-free, fourth-floor condo in Parkchester, which according to records was bought by her late dad, Sergio Ocasio, who died in 2008.

She's probably keeping her residence secret to avoid experiencing those nasty Molotov cocktails flying through her living room window. They tend to make a mess of the carpet

Researchers conclude livestock have no detectable effect on climate

Quick!!!== ==Someone tell AOC

Cow burps are destroying the ozone layer — we’ve all heard that one, and frankly, it’s time for the industry to ditch that myth once and for all.

As our industry zeroes in on topics of sustainability and ways we as beef producers can improve for the better, I continue to beat the same drum — cattlemen and women already do a spectacular job of managing our land and water to produce more beef using fewer resources.

Simply stated, beef production isn’t just sustainable; it’s regenerative. And despite what the naysayers claim, cattle grazing and consuming by-products of crop production play a critical role in our ecosystem.

Our consumers should be able to enjoy beef without guilt because it’s good for them and the planet. Period.

Yet, the link between cattle and climate change really seems to have caught hold. From the Meatless Mondays folks to the increasing sentiments that plant-based diets are far superior, we have a tough road ahead of us if we are ever going to change public perception and continue to foster feelings of trust and confidence with our consumers about our product.

New research conducted by agrobiologist and scientific researcher Albrecht Glatzle is a good place to start. He is a professor with INTTAS (Initiative for Research and Extension of Sustainable Agrarian Technologies), Filadelfia, Paraguay.

According to newly published research by Glatzle, who has written over 100 scientific papers and two textbooks, “There is no scientific evidence, whatsoever, that domestic livestock could represent a risk for the Earth’s climate.”

That’s news so good you better read it twice! New research is proving what we’ve known all along, and now it’s our job to spread this research far and wide.

As printed in the Climate Dispatch, Glatzle writes, “Our key conclusion is there is no need for anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), and even less so for livestock-born emissions, to explain climate change. Climate has always been changing, and even the present warming is most likely driven by natural factors.

“Between 1990 and 2005, the world cattle population rose by more than 100 million head (according to FAO statistics). During this time, atmospheric methane concentration stabilized completely.

“These empirical observations show that livestock is not a significant player in the global methane budget. This appreciation has been corroborated by Schwietzke et al. who suggested that methane emissions from fossil fuel industry and natural geological seepage have been 60–110% greater than previously thought,” he writes.

“We could not find a domestic livestock fingerprint, neither in the geographical methane distribution nor in the historical evolution of the atmospheric methane concentration. Consequently, in science, politics, and the media, the climate impact of anthropogenic GHG emissions has been systematically overstated.

“Livestock-born GHG emissions have mostly been interpreted isolated from their ecosystemic context, ignoring their negligible significance within the global balance. There is no scientific evidence, whatsoever, that domestic livestock could represent a risk for the Earth’s climate.”

Please share this blog post on social media today to help spread this message with our consumers. As the industry attempts to tweak and fine-tune this already well-oiled beef producing machine, this is an important conclusion to share as it truly reinforces what we’ve always known — beef producers were the original environmentalists and conservationists.

We’ve been improving the soil through cattle grazing for centuries as cattle aerate the soil with their hooves, fertilize it with their manure, reduce the spread of wildfires by grazing brush and promote new growth with each bite. Plus, by keeping grasslands intact instead of converting to monoculture farming or commercial/residential development, cattle help store more carbon and promote biodiversity of the soil.

It’s about time we get credit for our environmental efforts, don’t you think?

BERNIE IS A PROBLEM

North Carolina Woman Sentenced to Four Months for Alien Smuggling

The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that Carmen Melari Ferrufino Perdomo, 29, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was sentenced on February 22, 2019, to a four-month period of incarceration upon her conviction for transporting aliens who had entered the United States illegally from Canada. The prison term will be followed by a one-year period of supervised release. Ferrufino was also ordered to pay $5,100 as a special assessment in light of the nature of her crime. United States District Judge Christina Reiss ordered Ferrufino to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on April 5, 2019.

Court records show that on March 17, 2018, Ferrufino flew from her home in North Carolina to Burlington, Vermont, where she rented a car. She then drove in the early morning of March 18, 2018, to a pre-arranged location on the United States/Canada border to pick up six persons, all aliens who had just entered the United States illegally by walking through the woods. The United States Border Patrol stopped Ferrufino a short while after she had picked up her passengers. Records show that Ferrufino intended to drive all six aliens to New York City, and to receive payment in return.

Counsel for Ferrufino argued for a sentence of six months of house arrest. Judge Reiss disagreed, noting the premeditated nature of Ferrufino's conduct, as well as the societal risks associated with Ferrufino bringing persons she did not know, who had just entered the country unlawfully, further into the United States.

Government Is The Main Problem, Say A Record Number Of Americans

Think of all the troubles in the world. Climate change. Student debt. Terrorism. Job insecurity. What’s the number one most mentioned problem, according to a recent Gallup poll? Government itself. Thirty-five percent of Americans put that concern above all others. It’s a record number, according to the pollsters who have been tracking this since 2001.

Not only that: there have only been a handful of times when any number one issue clocked in with this level of intensity: terrorism after 9/11, Iraq after the war began, and the economy after 2008.

When I saw the numbers, my first thought was that Democrats made up the margin of change. They don’t like the president. He drives them crazy. So it makes sense that they would more quickly name government as the leading problem — which in turn raises the question of why they would push so hard for government to exercise more power over our lives.

It turns out, however, that it is not movement among Democrats but among Republicans that is the most noticeable on the graphs.

Having Trump as their president in office, then, has not increased confidence in government. If anything, it has had the opposite effect, turning Republicans themselves against government as never before. But notice that the loathing is nonpartisan.

Other polls such as Pew Research report similar results, with only 18 percent showing confidence in government at all. This is down from 78 percent half a century ago.

Chicago (AFP) - Residents in Oklahoma will be allowed to openly carry firearms without a permit or training, thanks to a new law signed by the US state's governor.

Supporters of the law, which takes effect in November, say it upholds the constitutional right to bear arms and is similar to laws in 15 other states.

The measure sailed through the state's Republican-controlled legislature this week and was the first bill signed by the newly-elected Republican Governor Kevin Stitt.

"As I traveled all over the state, all 77 counties, I heard from Oklahomans all over that they wanted us to protect their right to bear arms," Stitt said during the signing ceremony Wednesday.

The law says that anyone 21 or older – or 18 if a current or former member of the military – who is legally allowed to purchase a shotgun, rifle or pistol can carry it openly in public without a valid handgun license.

Convicted felons, undocumented immigrants and minors will remain prohibited.

The law included protections for private property owners to ban firearms, as well as colleges, schools and public areas such as zoos and sports arenas.

Weapons also would remain banned from government buildings.

The gun safety group Moms Demand Action condemned the new law, saying states with similar laws have seen "a substantial increase in firearm violence."

"I'm embarrassed for our state. I'm embarrassed that our elected leaders put politics before the safety of our families by passing permitless carry," the group's Oklahoma leader Christine Jackson said in a statement.

The Oklahoma law was passed on the same day lawmakers in the Democratic-controlled US House of Representatives passed the first major national gun safety measure in a quarter century, which would expand background checks to virtually all firearms sales.

Earlier this month, Americans marked the one-year anniversary of the Valentine's Day shooting at a Florida high school where 14 students and three staff were killed.

The mass shooting galvanized gun control proponents.

According to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, legislators in 26 states and the nation's capital Washington passed 67 new gun safety laws in 2018.

In seven states, background checks for gun buyers were added or existing laws strengthened. Four states raised the minimum age to purchase firearms.

Thursday's arrest of the former Cohoes firefighter, a DEMOCRAT who was elected mayor in 2015, follows a tumultuous 2 years in which he has faced multiple criminal investigations for allegations of domestic abuse. Those probes, by the State Police, Albany County Sheriff's Department and Colonie police, did not result in any charges.

During his two terms in office Obama's annual average GDP was 1.6%.

Obama never achieved one year annual with a 3% GDP while president.

Senate Committee: US Colleges Violated Law, Took Chinese Cash To Host What China’s Own Officials Call Propaganda

The Chinese government has funded hundreds of outposts in U.S. universities that its own officials say are avenues for propaganda, according to a bipartisan Senate investigation.

Most U.S. institutions of higher learning that received significant Chinese funding failed to report the foreign contracts in violation of the law, and many signed contracts that included secrecy provisions that prevent their terms from being known by students and the public, according to the report.

The Chinese government funds and staffs centers called Confucius Institutes at colleges outside Chinaaccording to a 100-page report issued Wednesday by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which will hold a hearing on the topic Thursday. The program is run by a Chinese government entity called Hanban.

“We should actively carry out international propaganda battles,” China’s former Minister of Propaganda Liu Yunshan said in a Chinese newspaper in 2010. “Our strategy is to proactively take our culture abroad … We should do well in establishing and operating overseas cultural centers and Confucius Institutes.”
