Estonia: U.S., NATO Practice Bombing Runs Near Russia Border

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:   We are still working on alternative sources for revenues. We want to thank those that contributed so far.  We need all the help we can get as you can see from their harassment.   

Our deficit is at $200, due in 7 days, so if you benefited in any way, from our blog,then please contribute off to the right at the pay pal button.  We thank you deeply for your continued support of our work. God bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy.


Vatic Note:   So, this is how they intend to globalize our military, is through NATO.  Sovereignty lost, but American Tax payers pay for it, while the entire globe gets to enjoy the benefits.  I guess since it worked in the Middle east for Israel, I can see why they have expanded it to include the rest of the globe.  Check this out as well.  And this one too....

So, they intend to use Americans wealth through their tax system,  to finance global expenses, and it all started with the TARP BILL and we said nothing, and thus they are now doing it fully out in the open.  This means corporations will pay NO TAXES, only the middle class, if there is one left, and the working class with nothing left for them or their children to have any kind of a life or future, if there are any children, given the sterilization going on without notice.

We will in effect, be slaves/serfs and have nothing left over to have a life.  Add that to the vaccines to sterilize, then they can depopulate at the same time, with us paying for it.   They are clever little pond scum, aren't they? If we do not wake up pretty doggone soon, even the goyim millionaires will be picked clean of their wealth so then we will have no Jefferson types to lead us in our second revolution.

Remember, they can't do any of this without our cooperation.  Its time to stop cooperating. 

Estonian JTACs take lead in historic training
http://rickrozoff.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/estonia-u-s-nato-practice-bombing-runs-near-russia-border/
By Senior Airman Matthew Lotz, 31st Fighter Wing Public Affairs, Nov 17, 2014

                                                     

AMARI AIR BASE, Estonia: With grey clouds flooding the skies overhead and poor visibility, Estonian air force joint tactical air controllers, or JTACs, communicated coordinates for airstrikes to U.S. pilots during the first-ever Estonian-led close air support exercise, Nov. 13-14, here. (VN: moving toward a NWO with other nations controlling our military.  Bye bye Sovereignty.  Now we know why they wanted the third world war..... to move into final phase of that agenda.)

This latest round of interoperability training under the umbrella of Operation Atlantic Resolve enabled two 555th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots to execute air-to-ground training with Estonian JTACs. While the JTACs honed their proficiency at calling in simulated precision airstrikes, the pilots leveraged this new milestone in interoperability training to enhance the readiness of NATO combat air forces. (VN: so they could globalize.  Watch and see if they don't change the name of NATO to some global name)

“The U.S. is committed to international security and through this bilateral training with our NATO partners, we are able to counter a range of regional and global threats,” said Maj. Benjamin Couchman, 555th FS pilot and exercise mission commander. “We will continue participating in these joint readiness training events that build partnership capacity and at the same time ensure the security of our allies and partners.”

Although cloud cover restricted visibility between ground and air, according to the Estonian JTACs, the training was highly successful.

“We are training daily to stay proficient with Estonian aircraft, but the capabilities of a U.S. F-16 bring a whole new dimension to our efforts to train like we fight,” said an Estonian air force JTAC. “It’s so important for us to be able to work with U.S. forces and we look forward to additional opportunities in the future.” (VN: see?  What did I say!!!!)


As was the case during recent exercises Platinum Eagle and Ample Strike, this deployment of Aviano’s F-16s to Estonia was in keeping with America’s commitment to ensuring the security of U.S. and NATO allies. While transiting to Estonia, the pilots were also able to train with a KC-135 Stratotanker from the 100th Air Refueling Wing, RAF Mildenhall, England. (VN: reminds me of Bush Sr and the Iraq war when he mentioned the starting of a new World order to fight it. Here we are again, Estonia and Britain, and who knows who else.)

“All of the training we were able to accomplish in these two days strengthened our relationships within NATO, enhanced our interoperability and reassured our European allies of our commitment to peace and stability in the region,” Couchman said. “Because we are ‘forward, ready, now,’ we can support our allies and quickly respond to emerging threats.”

Globalist Harmony: East-West "Conflict" is a Charade -

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:   We are still working on alternative sources for revenues. We want to thank those that contributed so far.  We need all the help we can get as you can see from their harassment.

Vatic Note: As we have said in the past, both sides are in on the scam called WW III. It was at a G-20 meeting that these collaborators agreed to use smart meters to form a global spy network called a "grid".  We are currently fighting that right now in our county and the county next door.   Our next step will be to bring a law suit to stop the smart meters proving to the court the medical harm of these meters to the people who have them on their homes.

WE also can prove the executives of these energy power companies also KNEW ABOUT THE HARM TO US and still put them in even behind the residents back without notice. That along proves they knew what they were doing and did not want us to know.  We will also prove they start fires on homes while people are sleeping, and even more. All of which the admins and board members of these energy companies knew all about the facts and chose to ignore them, at the risk to the paying customer

I am beginning to realize its dangerous when the G-20 gets together. I thought Putin and the Chinese were enemies of the US, according to the Press and powers that be,  or are they just acting like enemies of the USA and is that why they are part of the G-20 and attending these meetings and have some say in it all?  Could their education at Oxford, the home of university secret societies,  have something to do with their belonging to the G-20, that can certainly be the case for the Chinese.  Putin is another story altogether?

If one half of the membership are enemies of the other half, then what in the heck are they doing meeting together?  The agenda has to be something else.  What could that be???  Globalization using deception, propoganda, false flags, gun confiscation, martial law, etc???

22bits-spy-tmagArticle.jpgThe G20 Are Collaborators In The New World Order
Vladimir Putin will be attending the upcoming G-20 meeting in Brisbane.

Below, Larry P lists 30 stories that prove East-West relations are just fine, and the "G" in G-20 might stand for "Globalist" or/and Freemasonry. They all stand for Judeo-Masonic central banker control. (VN:that is confirmed in the protocols of the Elders of Zion where they stated clearly their plan to blame the freemasons, and the Catholic Church for cover for whatever these zionist bankers decide to do to us. Notice the "Freemasons" discussed in this article are not the "real freemasons" that are brick layers. The Judeo Masonic lodges created by Rothschild have NO bricklayers or masons in their organizations, like B'nai Brith and the "York Lodge" which are both Judeao Masonic lodges and are the bad guys. No stone masons, only elite globalists.  As they said in the protocols,  "using them for cover and blame".)

by Larry P
(henrymakow.com)


The U.S., Russia, and China are locking horns in an ever intensifying power struggle. At least that's what we're told by the mainstream media and our own government. Virtually everyday the media presents us with stories of how Russia violated the airspace of some Western country or that China and the U.S. are hacking each others computer networks.

But what if that wasn't the whole picture? What if the news was selected in a way to present a bias that would lead you to a desired conclusion? Webster's defines propaganda as 'ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause.'

The stories the mainstream media chooses to post as headlines do not reflect a true picture of the relationships between the G20 member countries. For example. Would you be surprised to learn that a Russian Bank hired former Senators Trent Lott, R-Miss and John Breaux, D-La. or that despite being told Russia and the U.S. are bitter foes the U.S. Marines purchased Russian helicopters for use in Afghanistan or that the Obama administration gave free military equipment to Russia? (1)(2)(3)

Nothing remotely of that nature is reported on the nightly news. If the Government labeled another country as aggressive and yet was looking to expand cooperation with them under their joint space program or that they both are trying to block new nuclear power regulations post-Fukushima, would you question their relationship? That is in fact what we see as the U.S. Government is doing with Russia. (4)(5)

Knowing the French are about to deliver a warship to Russia or that Britain has sold more than £86m in military hardware to Russia in the past year would be  important factors to know as well.(6)(7)

Do corporations launch new business ventures like IHG (Holiday Inn) did in Russia if they think the country is a potential threat? (8) Do governments let foreign corporations buy their assets if they think they are a potential enemy? 

Vindex3.jpgOf course not, and in fact the West's own policies insured Russia would be an able partner as even Vladimir Putin's own speech declared, "We will strive to ensure a New World Order" (9)(10)

While the U.S., China, and Russia ramp up Cold War rhetoric, the true economic ties that connect the East and West are far removed from the public consciousness. At an Oct 20th meeting of the Russian Foreign Investment Advisory Council, Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev said,"Everyone confirmed their readiness to work in any conditions from the viewpoint of geopolitics and fundamental economic circumstances." (11)

The countries ready to do business are the same that are typically portrayed as having disputes with Russia including the U.S., Britain, Sweden, Finland etc. (12)  While the media reports the West's sanctions against Russia are "biting," half of Russians polled say these Western sanctions will help them (13)(14).

SANCTIONS INEFFECTIVE

One has to question sanctions at all as Russia's own report showed the trade volume between the U.S. and Russia actually went up by as much as 20% after sanctions began along with the fact that the Russian firm Oasis Beverages just purchased U.S. brewer Pabst (15)(16) The E.U. has similar sanctions on Russia but interestingly Russia's Gazprom just purchased Europe's largest gas storage facility as well as the Italian insulation firm Membrane. (17)(18) Again does a government sell an important asset like a gas storage facility to a potential enemy?

Echoing the cooperation the G20 has among member nations Russia's Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak at their meeting in Australia's Cairns found no disputes on global issues (19)

The contradiction doesn't stop there as the scale to which China is merging into the fabric of the G20 is phenomenal. Governments and corporations from Italy to Canada and all points in between are setting up agreements or are outright selling to China. We see the U.S. is partnered with China to train Afghan diplomats. (20) Luxembourg has a joint space cooperation with China.(21) Jaguar and Land Rover are to build a new plant in Shanghai. (22) German drug companies are pouring money into Chinese operations. (23)

By itself the U.S. real estate market is a favorite of the Chinese. (24) Not only in commerce but a special connection exists between China and the U.S. in education. (25) For example Yale University just received a $10 million donation and that's on top of Harvard receiving a $15 million donation in September - both Chinese donors. (26)(27)

vindex4.jpg(left, last year 200,000 Chinese students attended US universities. (VN:  I bet they were secret society Ivy League schools, like  yale and Harvard.)

The Chinese love for American schools isn't just at the University level however it's also found in compulsory education as well. Private high schools in the U.S. are seeing a large influx of Chinese students as cultural China and America are becoming more integrated than ever.(28) So I ask do wealthy parents send their children to live and be educated in a country they deem to be a potential threat?  


Does American business interests sell the Waldorf Astoria hotel, a mecca for New York elite, to an enemy? (29) Lets not forget Mao Zedong's involvement with the Yale school in China as a reminder of the West's cooperation with the East.  (VN: lets also not forget that the Li family are part of the 13 bloodlines of the Illuminati.  That screams volumes about what is really going on.  This integration is just another tool in the globalizing tool kit.)

HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE


If we want to gain an appreciation of the relationships of the G20 member countries today we can look to history as a guide. We know that American corporations and banks were involved in aiding the NAZI and Communist regimes during the time when those regimes were known to be a threat to their own people. This contradiction exists today and the State-controlled media cannot be trusted to give a true representation of how the social, economic, and political realms flow between the G20 members. The Pentagon claims China is a growing military threat and yet American business, academia, and Government is becoming more intertwined with the Chinese every day. (VN: lets also not forget that Goldman Sachs is the exclusive foreign brokerage house allowed in China and 3,000 of their leaders currently in China were educated at Oxford, the home of secret societies.)

Vindex.jpgThe Pentagon's message contradicts Christine Legarde's sentiments however as she looks to the day the IMF is headquartered in Beijing (30) (VN: instead of being located in Puerto Rico)

Another reality history shows us is that military conflict does happen. Wars such as Vietnam prove that the dominant countries try to control smaller ones which leads us to the New World Order. The simple fact is the world's elites don't need large scale war to accomplish a one-world government. However they need enough chaos especially economically to bring about their twisted dream. As more jobs have been moved to China, we see the economic chaos that resulted in the G20 countries.  (VN: and lets remember, the way our country USED TO DEAL WITH shipping our jobs overseas to slave labor countries, was to slap an import tax upon those corporations, to share in the profits those corporations received using slave labor, and the harm financially it did to those now unemployed in our country, but now NOTHING.  NADA and that is why the election results turned out as they have and why a lot worse will be visiting them soon.)

Instead of sound monetary policies being enacted we see the G20 countries central banks acting in concert pushing near zero interest rates and easy money. (VN: which is the key to hyper inflation which is used as a weapon of mass destruction, like they did to Germany, who also lost their WW, thanks to the bankers.) At some point one has to look beneath the everyday propaganda from political talking heads and controlled media outlets to look at the hard data. That data proves the G20 countries are moving in a unified direction socially, economically, and politically toward the New World Order. (VN:  and "legally" as well, since the upper class can commit crimes with no prosecution and the 99% go to jail from much less criminal activity than that exercised by the elite corporations. When was the last time anyone enforced the Sherman Anti-trust act?  Show me someone is prison that made millions manipulating the stock market, which has been proven to have been done, but no one in jail for it?  Yup, this is your SATANIC NWO.)

"We Would Publish Whole Stories That Were Lies" - Newsweek Editor

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:   We are still working on alternative sources for revenues. We want to thank those that contributed so far.  We need all the help we can get as you can see from their harassment.   

Our deficit is at $200, due in 7 days, so if you benefited in any way, from our blog,then please contribute off to the right at the pay pal button.  We thank you deeply for your continued support of our work. God bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Vatic Note:   Even good reporters do not fully understand the disasterous affects of lying or misreporting or not reporting the facts of a situation that harms thousands if not millions of Americans.   So while they may condemn publications for not reporting, I saw below how they do not understand the impact and I had to do a VN: put in to make the point.

Those decisions based on false information resulting in the death or maiming of so many Americans are treason of the worse kind and should have been prosecuted and since there are no statute of limitations on murder, we can still do right by the victims of these crimes.  And we SHOULD make our country do right.

Both Cheney, and Bush Jr should be prosecuted and anyone else controlling our government, should be named and added to that list, including any dual Israeli citizens, Mossad agents, etc.  Then we should give our normal donation of foreign aid to Israel,  then confiscate it and give it to the families of those these Israeli's killed.

This is an old story, and yet, because we did not prosecute, it will continue on losing the lives of Americans, until we do prosecute. We see it today as if it were 2010.  That is what happens if we do nothing, then HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF AND WE ARE TO BLAME FOR DOING NOTHING THE FIRST TIME.

Its time to do so now.  No  more lies, deceptions, provocateuring, etc.... that includes all false flags.  At this point, I would even throw in the USS Liberty and the families of those men killed to be compensated.  If Israel refuses, then kicked them all out of our government and send them packing back to Israel.


"We Would Publish Whole Stories That Were Lies" - Newsweek Editor 
http://www.bollyn.com/the-antidote-for-disinfo/#article_12152
By Admin, Bollyn,  source: Alex Beam, Boston Globe, reprinted on Chris Bollyn blog, May 21, 2010

As a journalist, I enjoy reading a good newspaper.  I found this amazingly candid editorial in the global edition of the New York Times, of all places.  Alex Beam, the author, was a fact-checker with Newsweek magazine in the 1970s.  In this piece Beam admits that Newsweek "would publish whole stories that were lies."  I have decided to present the entire editorial for my readers because this is the fundamental problem with the controlled press in the United States - it lies through its teeth on matters of grave importance to the public. 

The New York Times, you will recall, published a series of stories from Judith Miller that were completely false about Iraq's supposed weapons of mass destruction, which in reality did not exist.  These false stories, however, were instrumental in dragging the United States into an extremely costly and disastrous war - one in which we are still engaged.  (VN: it was disasterous for both the Iraqi's who suffered losses in the millions and the USA who had 78,000 soldiers die, and over 1 million of our children permanently maimed.)


It is, of course, not just Newsweek and the New York Times that are in the business of producing war propaganda and lying to the American people.  The entire controlled press network of the United States tells the same lies, especially the big television networks, CNN, and FOX News.  The so-called mainstream media (which is really not at all mainstream) has lied to the public for soon to be 9 years about what really happened on 9-11.  

The 9-11 truth is out but only thanks to independent researchers and writers on the Internet.  The Zionist controlled political system and media have been the biggest obstacles to finding the truth about what happened on 9-11.  The treasonous media and politicians present us with a politically charged and unstable situation, one which cannot be accepted for very long by any nation who aspires or expects to live in freedom. 
 
“WE WOULD PUBLISH WHOLE STORIES THAT WERE LIES”
When being a journalist-on-the-rise was a glass half-filled job
By Alex Beam, Boston Globe
May 11, 2010

Alex Beam
My first job in journalism was at the now-foundering Newsweek magazine, which the Washington Post Co. has put up for sale. This was — gasp — more than 30 years ago, and my memories are grossly irrelevant to anything that has happened there since, say, 1980. Having said that . . .
Newsweek in 1977 and 1978 was fat, plush, almost 100 pages long, and choked with advertising. (The current issue is 56 pages.) I’m told the magazine had its moment in the 1960s; maybe. When I arrived, it was very much Avis to Time’s Hertz — smaller, somewhat scrappier, but as firmly committed to corporate, factory journalism as our crosstown rival.
I was an editorial assistant/fact-checker, with duties analogous to those of an 18th-century cabin boy in the Royal Navy. My favorite person in the building, a shaky-handed editor named Richard Steele, assured me of a bright future, because I knew when to refresh his bottomless vodka glass as he gleefully tore into staffers’ copy every Friday night.
The entire, nutty journalism model had been lifted wholesale from Henry Luce & Co. over at Time. Correspondents sent lengthy dispatches to New York, where modestly gifted, self-hating writers boiled their work into readable squibs. Actual editors then rehashed the silage a second or third time, until it came out sounding like the Delta Airlines flight magazine. Calvin Trillin, one of several major talents to escape the newsweekly grasp — John McPhee, Geoffrey Wolff, and Maureen Dowd would be others — poked fun at the whole process in his short novel “Floater.’’
In Luce’s day, a cadre of gorgeous, brilliant women from the Seven Sisters colleges backstopped this modern-day rendering plant as fact-checkers. In the late 1970s, about half the fact-checkers were men, so in addition to pouring vodka I checked facts, a process that left me bleakly cynical about journalistic accuracy. We would publish whole stories that were lies — Francois Mitterrand’s plan to destroy the French economy was a recurring theme — but at least the names were spelled correctly. Two T’s, two R’s. I will never forget.
I worked at the international edition, where our big mission was refighting the Cold War. The fall of Saigon was only three years behind us, and glasnost was still eight years away. We printed many “exclusives’’ by a remarkably tanned, anti-communist crusader named Arnaud de Borchgrave, known as “the short count.’’ De Borchgrave would announce his masterpieces with the antiquated phrase “Three bells!’’ an allusion to the old wire-service tickers which used to chime bells touting stories of capital importance. Everyone laughed at de Borchgrave’s copy, but we printed it anyway. Those decisions were made well above my pay grade. He later became editor of the Moonie-owned Washington Times.
The weekly magazine pace was languid. In New York, nobody did any serious work before Thursday. Then we labored like dogs, usually through the night on Friday, writing, rewriting, rerewriting, then trimming and performing light editing through Saturday. Correspondent Seth Mydans once confessed to me that he had no idea how to spend the first half of his week. Like many other Newsweek reporters, he soon drifted away to The New York Times, where, it is said, a Monday-to-Friday work schedule remains in effect.
For me, Newsweek was like an upside-down journalism school, where I learned an astonishing number of bad habits, e.g., having someone else check your facts. We poached material constantly, from newspapers, from other publications — even from Time. Copying from Time was a fact-checker’s dream, because we knew they took accuracy very seriously over there. It is true that a first-year reporter at the Cape Cod Times knew 20 times as much about journalism as I did then, but what the heck: I wanted to work at Newsweek.
I did eventually land enough bylines to move to another job, but because it wasn’t at the Delta flight magazine or at a vodka concession, I had to learn the trade all over again.

Angry Ukrainians Force Joe Biden To Abruptly Cancel Event: Ukraine’s NWO Puppet Poroshenko Heckled

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:  I put these up and the PTB gutted them, last night I thought I forgot, but tonight I know I put them up and they were gone when I got up this morning at 1:30am.  I hope its not too late.  We are still working on alternative sources for revenues. We want to thank those that contributed so far.  We need all the help we can get as you can see from their harassment.   

Our deficit is at $200, due in 8 days, so if you benefited in any way, from our blog,then please contribute off to the right at the pay pal button.  We thank you deeply for your continued support of our work. God bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Vatic Note:   Reading about this below is almost like reading about here.  The Ukrainians can't get any western Justice either.  Crimes are committed and then ignored.  In their case it was mass murder of protestors against the EU's western puppet leaders.  To this day nothing has been done and the protests continue.  Biden's security people were wise to cancel his trip, or we might have lost a VP.  Not that would have made any difference, since we know nothing about what Biden is doing.

This was in the body of  the article and is important enough to read up here and see what it is we don't know since we dont' have a working press.  Why do we have to find out these things from the alternative press?

More Bells Ringing: Obama To Send $1 Billion Of U.S. Taxpayer’s Money To Ukraine In Violation Of The Foreign Assistance Act, While Detroit, Michigan Plans Mass Water Shutoffs For $260 Million!

Does this look like treason to you?  It does to me. And we the people are doing nothing about all of this criminal, blatant corruption.  But they are certainly pushing us into action.  Unfortunately any serious action we take simply plays into their martial law plans.  We have a serious problem on our hands and we best figure out how to deal with it.

Ukrainians marked the first anniversary of Those Who Were Murdered In The European Union Coup. U.S. Financed Change In The Country’s Constitutional Leadership And Seated A Pro NWO Puppet Named Poroshenko Who Is Trying To Bring Ukraine Closer To The Banker’s EU.
KIEV, Ukraine — Vice President Biden abruptly canceled a wreath-laying ceremony Friday at a memorial marking Ukraine’s pro-Western revolution after angry crowd gathered to demand justice for those killed in the unrest.

Biden was in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, on the first anniversary of the “Maidan” revolution that brought hundreds of thousands of protesters into the streets for three months before President Viktor Yanukovich was driven from office on Feb. 21.

The change of plans — forced when Biden’s Secret Service escort decided that the scene was too risky — underscored the turbulence in Ukraine after a year of political upheavals and a separatist rebellion by factions allied with Moscow.
[Separatist Rebellions Were Ordinary Ukrainians Fighting The Illegal U.S./E.U. Orchestrated Coup Against Their Country]  (VN: this latter explanation makes a lot more sense.  Lets not forget who it was that created the Ukrainian Holocaust during WW II, it was the khazar bankers, who else.)

At the memorial event, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko was quickly surrounded by elderly women who said their sons were among the dead in the clashes that ousted the Russian-allied government. “Shame, shame,” some men chanted at Poroshenko.

Uniformed soldiers and presidential security at the scene did not attempt to hold back the protesters at the edge of cobblestone Institutka Street, near the center of last winter’s revolution.

“My son died right here,” said Antonia Chaplinska. “He was 44 years old, and he had a wife and two kids.”

Roman Savchak, 29, said the families wanted to ask Poroshenko “what has been done a year after all these people died. … We want those responsible to be tried.”
When Biden’s motorcade arrived, his Secret Service escort decided it was unsafe for him to leave his vehicle. Instead, Biden waited for Poroshenko to emerge, then greeted the Ukrainian president in the street before driving a block away to a meeting with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
Later in a speech, Biden said that the United States will never recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea and warned Moscow that it risks greater isolation if it continues its “provocative action.”

The Obama administration is considering expanding its aid to Ukraine with what officials called “defensive” lethal military equipment as a tenuous cease-fire between government troops and heavily-armed separatists rapidly unravels.
The United Nations said Friday that nearly 1,000 people have been killed since the cease-fire was negotiated between Poroshenko and Russia in September.

“The list of victims keeps growing,” the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, said in a statement from Geneva. “Civilians, including women, children, minorities and a range of vulnerable individuals and groups, continue to suffer the consequences of the political stalemate in Ukraine.”

EU mulls imposing sanctions against Israel

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:  I put these up and the PTB gutted them, last night I thought I forgot, but tonight I know I put them up and they were gone when I got up this morning at 1:30am.  I hope its not too late.  We are still working on alternative sources for revenues. We want to thank those that contributed so far.  We need all the help we can get as you can see from their harassment.   

Our deficit is at $200, due in 8 days, so if you benefited in any way, from our blog,then please contribute off to the right at the pay pal button.  We thank you deeply for your continued support of our work. God bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Vatic Note:    Notice, the EU is only "MULLING" sanctions against Israel..... their propoganda and disinfo is getting so bad now, that one can't help laughing as you watch their feeble attempt to manipulate us into doing their satanic deeds for them.  Not going to happen.  That is why we kept our guns.  I do believe that Veterans Today means what they say here, especially Jim Dean in his editors note.  I just hope he is right that this is really happening, but again I simply revert to my usual  "We will see". 

I  have a quandry, that maybe our readers can help me with...... I am confused by the Rothschild Israeli leaders and previous behavior by the USA during the Bush administration.  Back around 2003, the Bush administration gave millions of dollars to Israel to build a nuke hardened bunker  underground.  At that time Barry Chamish was a reporter in Israel before seeking asylum elsewhere due to an unsuccessful attempt on his life by the khazars, and he disclosed this fact along with photos of the nuke hardened entrances.  The project was done by 2005.

At the same time this is going on Israeli money was buying up massive tracks of land in Petagonia, which is the southern section of Chile and Argentina.  Then the press reported that citizens of Chile and Argentina were not allowed to travel to Petagonia, which was a usual vacation spot for the South Americans.

Israel began using the money to build the nuke hardened base which was completed by 2005.  These actions by Israel and the US convinced me that both countries had a false flag in mind to do to Israel, that involved nukes.  AT the time I could not figure out what the False flag was, how they were going to trigger it, and who exactly was involved and most of all "WHY"?

Nothing I came up with made any sense.  If Israel was nuked then all that land would be useless to them for  years to come.  Since then I presumed that the reason was to move to a location that would give them greater control over the continent with the most obvious resources and yet the most difficult population that is armed, so no control over the people.  If anyone has any ideas I would sure love to hear them, since I still don't really understand why that was done. And I have found no evidence even suggesting why it was done.

EU mulls imposing sanctions against Israel: Report

Top Daily Story  …  Press TV,  Tehran

Hebron Zionist graffitiHebron Zionist graffiti
[ Editor’s NoteThis pushback from the EU has been building for some time now with the clues having been quite obvious, so this recent news comes as no surprise.
In a way I would have thought that the Israelis, obviously aware of the major shift in play, would have shown some recognition by dialing back on their usual “stir the pot” provocations, but they have always had a blind spot in this area.
The political problem is that there is no real option for change in any feasible new government replacing the Likuds, as they would have to make deals with some of the hard liners to have any chance of a coalition, and when it was all done you would have “Likud Lite”.
But what I see that is more important at this early juncture is that the EU does not seemed concerned about the obvious American resistance to this trend. Because the EU is building a broad coalition for pushing ahead with a change in their Israeli relations, this presents us with a large legislative body with which to confront our sold-out US Congress for the first time.
And last, the EU push has been rolling along, albeit slowly, without having been derailed by the powerful Jewish Lobbies across Europe, whose job it is to control all the various governments’ policies to conform to Zionist desires. They have a history of being very successful. We will be digging more into where this change actually started, as I do not think it was ever on the Tooth Fairy’s “to do” list.
There can be no success in turning this horrible situation around without the complete exposure and destruction of the Zionist Lobbies and their espionage penetrations into Western governments.
I have long editorialized on the penetration being one of the biggest national security threats that we face. We will not be free from their clutches until we have them all in jail and hunting the stragglers down in the jungles of the Amazon… Jim W. Dean(VN: I believe he is absolutely right.  I think it has always been one of our biggest national security threats since every world war has been a result of their manipulation through their bankers or should I call them "money changers"???  See how accurate the Bible is?  Jesus threw the "money changers" out of the Temple.  We should join Iceland in pursuing that option.)

Does the EU hold the keying to unlocking the Zionist stranglehold on Palestine
Does the EU hold the key to unlocking the Zionist stranglehold on Palestine?

The European Union considers imposing sanctions on Israel over its illegal settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, EU diplomatic sources say.

According to a report by Israeli newspaper Haaretz on Sunday, the EU’s European External Action Service (EEAS) distributed a confidential document to the EU 28 member states, which contains proposals for imposing sanctions against Tel Aviv should it take any illegal action in the West Bank that “could make the two-state solution impossible.”

Those who received the document were asked to keep the contents secret from Israel, the report added.

“There is big frustration in Europe and zero tolerance for settlement activity. This paper is part of the internal brainstorming” to keep the peace process alive, the Israeli daily quoted a European diplomat as saying.

According to the report, the bans proposed in the document include marketing products manufactured in the illegal Israeli settlements in EU supermarkets, limiting cooperation with Tel Aviv in various areas, and imposing restrictions on the free-trade agreement with the regime.

Palestinian officials have praised the recent measure adopted by the EU to halt Israel’s land grab in the occupied Palestinian lands.
“The whole world now recognizes the state of Palestine,” said Wasel Abu Yousef, with the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) Executive Committee, adding the international community emphasizes the importance of establishing a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders.
However, Tel Aviv continues to turn a cold shoulder to the international criticism of it expansionist policies.

On Sunday, Israeli Minister for Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman said Tel Aviv would never limit construction of settlements in East Jerusalem (al-Quds).
Much of the international community considers the settlements illegal because the territories were seized by Israel in a war in 1967, and are thus subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.

Interview with Henry Kissinger: 'Do We Achieve World Order Through Chaos or Insight?'

*** FUND RAISING STATUS:  I put these up and the PTB gutted them, last night I thought I forgot, but tonight I know I put them up and they were gone when I got up this morning at 1:30am.  I hope its not too late.  We are still working on alternative sources for revenues.

Vatic Note:  What this entire interview showed me, is the reason Kissinger has survived in the political arena for so very long.  He is a master sludge shoveler and hired foreign affairs prostitute for the illum families and he is good at it.  When you read  all this below and know all that he says is disinformation, propoganda, and revisionist history, you began to understand why he is so indispensable to the powers that be.

What I have never understood was the reason he abandoned so many American soldiers, MIA's and POW's to a life sentence in Viet Nam as slaves??  I could never figure out why and what benefit it was to the power structure that they engage in such abandonment, the likes of which we had never seen before.  I expected it of Russia, or even some third world dictator, but never the United States.   But then Kissinger was not born here, was he? 

Der Spiegel of Germany, is the equivalent of CNN in America.  That is the worst comment about them that I could think to give.  I guess there is something to be said for living 91 years and continuing to work.  You become an expert unlike anyone on the planet and as corrupt and arrogant as anyone on the planet.  You begin to believe you are God when you can live that long and continue to work in the same field and do so corruptly.

Remember, this is the man who wrote that document in 1974 recommending depopulating all of Africa of their native populations.  It takes some gumption to say things that would signal what a nut case you are.  He certainly has done that without blinking an eyelash or showing any signs of embarrassment, which tells me he may actually not know just how insane he truly is.  That is even scarier.  Enough of my rambling, please read, and then reread my Vatic Note and you decide.  Thanks.

Interview with Henry Kissinger: 'Do We Achieve World Order Through Chaos or Insight?'
http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/interview-with-henry-kissinger-on-state-of-global-politics-a-1002073.html
by Admin,  Der Speigel, a German Newspaper,  Nov 13, 2014
                                                     



Henry Kissinger seems more youthful than his 91 years. He is focused and affable, but also guarded, ready at any time to defend himself or brusquely deflect overly critical questions. That, of course, should come as no surprise. While his intellect is widely respected, his political legacy is controversial. Over the years, repeated attempts have been made to try him for war crimes.  (VN:  he is more  youthful than his 91  years, due to all the harvested organs from Palestinian teens and stem cells from aborted fetuses.  Remember, this is a man who has absolutely no compunction in killing unarmed civilians for his masters, so it would be nothing to him to obtain organ transplants, stem cells from such babies, and then continue on for life as Rockefellers personal secretary of state. As the author says, he has been pursued by many for crimes against humanity and evaded capture.
Remember, these illums are going for never dying.  That is what they have their ghoulish scientists working on as we speak.  Permanent life and never dying.  Notice how these bankers have already assumed they are in control?  They even have their own Secretary of State.  I found that truly insane and profoundly arrogant.)
ANZEIGE
From 1969 to 1977, Kissinger served under President Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, first as national security advisor and then as secretary of state. In those roles, he also carried partial responsibility for the napalm bombings in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos the killed or maimed tens of thousands of civilians. Kissinger also backed the putsch against Salvador Allende in Chile and is accused of having had knowledge of CIA murder plots. Documents declassified just a few weeks ago show that Kissinger had drawn up secret plans to launch air strikes against Cuba. The idea got scrapped after Democrat Jimmy Carter was elected in 1976.

Nevertheless, Kissinger remains a man whose presence is often welcome in the White House, where he continues to advise presidents and secretaries of state to this day.

Little in Kissinger's early years hinted at his future meteoric rise in American politics. Born as Heinz Alfred Kissinger in F├╝rth, Germany in 1923, his Jewish family would later flee to the United States in 1938. After World War II, Kissinger went to Germany to assist in finding former members of the Gestapo. He later studied political science and became a professor at Harvard at the age of 40.

Kissinger recently published his 17th book, a work with the not exactly modest title "World Order." When preparing to sit down with us for an interview, he asked that "world order" be the topic. Despite his German roots and the fact that he reads DER SPIEGEL each week on his iPad, Kissinger prefers to speak in English. After 90 minutes together in New York, Kissinger says he's risked his neck with everything he's told us. But of course, a man like Kissinger knows precisely what he does and doesn't want to say.

SPIEGEL: Dr. Kissinger, when we look at the world today, it seems to be messier than ever -- with wars, catastrophes and chaos everywhere. Is the world really in greater disorder than ever before? Kissinger: It seems that it is. There is chaos threatening us, through the spread of weapons of mass destruction and cross-border terrorism. There is now a phenomenon of ungoverned territories, and we have seen in Libya, for example, that an ungoverned territory can have an enormous impact on disorder in the world. The state as a unit is under attack, not in every part of the world, but in many parts of it. But at the same time, and this seems to be a paradox, this is the first time one can talk about a world order at all.

SPIEGEL: What do you mean by that?
Kissinger: For the greatest part of history until really the very recent time, world order was regional order. This is the first time that different parts of the world can interact with every part of the world. This makes a new order for the globalized world necessary. But there are no universally accepted rules. There is the Chinese view, the Islamic view, the Western view and, to some extent, the Russian view. And they really are not always compatible.

SPIEGEL: In your new book, you frequently point to the Westphalian Peace Treaty of 1648 as a reference system for world order, as a result of the Thirty Years' War. Why should a treaty dating back more than 350 years still be relevant today?
Kissinger: The Westphalian Peace was made after almost a quarter of the Central European population perished because of wars, disease and hunger. The treaty was based on the necessity to come to an arrangement with each other, not on some sort of superior morality. Independent nations decided not to interfere in the affairs of other states. They created a balance of power which we are missing today.

SPIEGEL: Do we need another Thirty Years' War to create a new world order?
Kissinger: Well, that's a very good question. Do we achieve a world order through chaos or through insight? One would think that the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the dangers of climate change and terrorism should create enough of a common agenda. So I would hope that we can be wise enough not to have a Thirty Years' War.

SPIEGEL: So let's talk about a concrete example: How should the West react to the Russian annexation of Crimea? Do you fear this might mean that borders in the future are no longer incontrovertible?
Kissinger: Crimea is a symptom, not a cause. Furthermore, Crimea is a special case. Ukraine was part of Russia for a long time. You can't accept the principle that any country can just change the borders and take a province of another country. But if the West is honest with itself, it has to admit that there were mistakes on its side. The annexation of Crimea was not a move toward global conquest. It was not Hitler moving into Czechoslovakia.

SPIEGEL: What was it then?
Kissinger: One has to ask one's self this question: Putin spent tens of billions of dollars on the Winter Olympics in Sochi. The theme of the Olympics was that Russia is a progressive state tied to the West through its culture and, therefore, it presumably wants to be part of it. So it doesn't make any sense that a week after the close of the Olympics, Putin would take Crimea and start a war over Ukraine. So one has to ask one's self why did it happen?

SPIEGEL: What you're saying is that the West has at least a kind of responsibility for the escalation?
Kissinger: Yes, I am saying that. Europe and America did not understand the impact of these events, starting with the negotiations about Ukraine's economic relations with the European Union and culminating in the demonstrations in Kiev. All these, and their impact, should have been the subject of a dialogue with Russia. This does not mean the Russian response was appropriate.

SPIEGEL: It seems you have a lot of understanding for Putin. But isn't he doing exactly what you are warning of -- creating chaos in eastern Ukraine and threatening sovereignty?
Kissinger: Certainly. But Ukraine has always had a special significance for Russia. It was a mistake not to realize that.

SPIEGEL: Relations between the West and Russia are tenser now than they have been in decades. Should we be concerned about the prospects of a new Cold War?
Kissinger: There clearly is this danger, and we must not ignore it. I think a resumption of the Cold War would be a historic tragedy. If a conflict is avoidable, on a basis reflecting morality and security, one should try to avoid it.

SPIEGEL: But didn't the annexation of Crimea by Russia force the EU and US to react by imposing sanctions?
Kissinger: One, the West could not accept the annexation; some countermeasures were necessary. But nobody in the West has offered a concrete program to restore Crimea. Nobody is willing to fight over eastern Ukraine. That's a fact of life. So one could say we don't have to accept it, and we do not treat Crimea as a Russian territory under international law -- just as we continued to treat the Baltic states as independent throughout Soviet rule.

SPIEGEL: Would it be better to stop sanctions even without any concessions from the Russians?
Kissinger: No. But I do have a number of problems with the sanctions. When we talk about a global economy and then use sanctions within the global economy, then the temptation will be that big countries thinking of their future will try to protect themselves against potential dangers, and as they do, they will create a mercantilist global economy. And I have a particular problem with this idea of personal sanctions. And I'll tell you why. We publish a list of people who are sanctioned. So then, when the time comes to lift the sanctions, what are we going to say? "The following four people are now free of sanctions, and the other four are not." Why those four? I think one should always, when one starts something, think what one wants to achieve and how it should end. How does it end?

SPIEGEL: Doesn't that also apply to Putin, who has maneuvered himself into a corner? Does he act out of weakness or out of strength?
Kissinger: I think out of strategic weakness masked as tactical strength.

SPIEGEL: What does that mean for any interaction with him?
Kissinger: We have to remember that Russia is an important part of the international system, and therefore useful in solving all sorts of other crises, for example in the agreement on nuclear proliferation with Iran or over Syria. This has to have preference over a tactical escalation in a specific case. On the one hand it is important that Ukraine remain an independent state, and it should have the right to economic and commercial associations of its choice. But I don't think it's a law of nature that every state must have the right to be an ally in the frame work of NATO. You and I know that NATO will never vote unanimously for the entry of Ukraine.  
SPIEGEL: But we cannot tell the Ukrainians that they are not free to decide their own future.
Kissinger: Why not?

SPIEGEL: You're speaking like a superpower that is used to getting its way.
Kissinger: No, the United States cannot dictate, and the US should not try to dictate. It would be a mistake even to think it could. But in regards to NATO, the US will have one vote in a decision based on unanimity. The German chancellor has expressed herself in the same sense.
ANZEIGE
SPIEGEL: America is very polarized. The level of aggression in the political debate is extremely high. Is the superpower still even able to act at all? Kissinger: I am worried about this domestic split. When I worked in Washington, political combat was tough. But there was much more cooperation and contact between opponents of the two big parties.

SPIEGEL: In last week's elections, President Obama lost his majority in the Senate as well.
Kissinger: Technically correct. At the same time, the president is freed to stand for what is right -- just as President Harry Truman did between 1946 and 1948, when he advanced the Marshall Plan after losing Congress.

SPIEGEL: The next presidential race will soon begin. Would Hillary Clinton make a good candidate?
Kissinger: I consider Hillary a friend, and I think she's a strong person. So, yes, I think she can do the job. Generally, I think it would be better for the country if there were a change in administration. And I think we Republicans have to get a good candidate.

SPIEGEL: In your book, you write that international order "must be cultivated, not imposed." What do you mean by that?
Kissinger: What it means is we that we Americans will be a major factor by virtue of our strengths and values. You become a superpower by being strong but also by being wise and by being farsighted. But no state is strong or wise enough to create a world order alone.

SPIEGEL: Is American foreign policy wise and determined at the moment?
Kissinger: We have the belief in America that we can change the world by not just soft power, but by actual military power. Europe doesn't have that belief.

SPIEGEL: The American public is very reluctant to be engaged and would like to focus on domestic affairs. Obama himself talks about "nation building at home."
Kissinger: If you look at the five wars America has fought since World War II, they all had large public support. The present war against the terror organization Islamic State has large public support. The question is what happens as the war continues. Clarity about the outcome of the war is essential.

SPIEGEL: Shouldn't the most important objective be the protection of suffering civilians in Iraq and Syria.
Kissinger: First of all, I don't agree that the Syrian crisis can be interpreted as a ruthless dictator against a helpless population and that the population will become democratic if you remove the dictator.

SPIEGEL: But the civilians are suffering, however you define it.
Kissinger: Yes, they are, and they deserve sympathy and humanitarian assistance. Let me just say what I think is happening. It is partly a multiethnic conflict. It is partly a rebellion against the old structure of the Middle East. And it is partly a sort of rebellion against the government. Now, if one is willing to fix all these problems and if one is willing to pay the sacrifices for fixing all these problems and if one thinks one can create something that will bring this about, then one can say, "We will apply the right to interfere," but that means military measures and willingness to face the consequences. Look at Libya. There's no question that it was morally justified to overthrow Muammar Gadhafi, but we were not willing to fill the vacuum afterwards. Therefore we have militias fighting against each other today. You get an ungoverned territory and an arms depot for Africa.

SPIEGEL: But we are seeing a similarly unbearable situation in Syria. The state is falling apart and terror organizations are ruling large parts of the country. Wasn't it perhaps wrong not to intervene in order to avoid chaos that now represents a threat to us as well?
Kissinger: In my life, I have almost always been on the side of active foreign policy. But you need to know with whom you are cooperating. You need reliable partners -- and I don't see any in this conflict.

SPIEGEL: As in the Vietnam War. Do you sometimes regret your aggressive policy there?
Kissinger: You'd love me to say that.

SPIEGEL: Of course. You haven't spoken much about it all your life.
Kissinger: I've spent all my life studying these things, and written a book about Vietnam called "Ending the Vietnam War" and many chapters in my memoirs on Vietnam. You have to remember that the administration in which I served inherited the war in Vietnam. Five hundred thousand Americans were deployed there by the Johnson Administration. The Nixon Administration withdrew these troops gradually, with ground combat troops being withdrawn in 1971. I can only say that I and my colleagues acted on the basis of careful thought. On the strategic directions, that was my best thinking, and I acted to the best of my convictions.

SPIEGEL: There is a sentence in your book, on the last page, that can be understood as a kind of self-criticism. You write that you once thought you could explain history, but that today you are more modest when it comes to judging historical events.
Kissinger: I have learned, as I wrote, that history must be discovered, not declared. It's an admission that one grows in life. It's not necessarily a self-criticism. What I was trying to say is you should not think that you can shape history only by your will. This is also why I'm against the concept of intervention when you don't know its ultimate implications.

SPIEGEL: In 2003, you were in favor of overthrowing Saddam Hussein. At that time, too, the consequences of that intervention were uncertain.
Kissinger: I'll tell you what I thought at the time. I thought that after the attack on the United States, it was important that the US vindicate its position. The UN had certified major violations. So I thought that overthrowing Saddam was a legitimate objective. I thought it was unrealistic to attempt to bring about democracy by military occupation.

SPIEGEL: Why are you so sure that it is unrealistic?
Kissinger: Unless you are willing to do it for decades and you are certain your people will follow you. But it is probably beyond the resources of any one country.

SPIEGEL: For this reason, President Obama is fighting the war against terror from the air using drones and warplanes in Pakistan and Yemen and now in Syria and Iraq as well. What do you think about that?
Kissinger: I support attacks on territories from which terrorist attacks are launched. I have never expressed a public view on drones. It threatens more civilians than the equivalent one did in the Vietnam War, but it's the same principle.

SPIEGEL: In your book you argue that America has to make its decisions about war on the basis of what achieves the "best combination of security and morality." Can you explain what you mean by that?
Kissinger: No. It depends on the situation. What is our precise interest in Syria? Is it humanitarian alone? Is it strategic? Of course, you would always want to achieve the most moral possible outcome, but in the middle of a civil war you cannot avoid looking at the realities, and then you have to make the judgments.

SPIEGEL: Meaning that for a certain amount of time, for realistic reasons, we could be on the side of Bashar Assad fighting Islamic State?
Kissinger: Well, no. We could never fight with Assad. That would be a denial of years of what we have done and asserted. But frankly, I think we should have had a dialogue with Russia and asked what outcome we want in Syria, and formulate a strategy together. It was wrong to say from the beginning that Assad must go -- although it is a desirable ultimate goal. Now that we are locked into that conflict with Russia, a deal regarding the Iranian nuclear program becomes more difficult.

SPIEGEL: Are you in favor of a more assertive role for Europe, especially for Germany?
Kissinger: Yes, certainly. A century ago, Europe almost had a monopoly in creating world order. Today, there is a danger it is just busy with itself. Today, Germany is the most significant European country and, yes, it should be much more active. I do have very high regard of Ms. Merkel, and I think she is the right person for leading Germany into this role. By the way, I've met and been sort of friendly with every German chancellor.

SPIEGEL: Oh, including Willy Brandt?
Kissinger: I have very high regard for Willy Brandt.

SPIEGEL: We're a bit surprised here because a few months ago, a conversation between you and Nixon was released in which you call Brandt a "dangerous idiot".
Kissinger: You know, these phrases out of context confuse the reality. Here are people at the end of an exhausting day saying things to each other, reflecting the mood of a moment, and it probably was during some difference of opinion which I don't even remember. We had some doubts about Brandt's Ostpolitik at the beginning, but later, we worked very closely with him. Ask Egon Bahr, he will tell you: Without the Nixon Administration, Brandt's Ostpolitik would not have achieved its objective, especially on the issue of Berlin.

SPIEGEL: In Germany, you are a very controversial politician. When the University of Bonn wanted to name a chair after you, the students protested. Were you disappointed, or at least irritated?
Kissinger: I appreciate the honor. I didn't ask for the chair, and I only became aware of the chair after it was established. I don't want to be part of the discussion, it's entirely up to German agencies. I think Germany should do it for itself or not do it for its own reasons.
SPIEGEL: Mr. Kissinger, we thank you for this interview.
