Now Jeremy Corbyn Is A Traitor Too ???

The leader of the UK’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, called for a “de-escalation” of tensions between NATO and Russia, adding in a BBC interview on Thursday: “I want to see a de-militarisation of the border between them.” Along with the U.S., the UK has been rapidly building up its military presence in the Baltic region, including states which border Russia, and is now about to send another 800 troops to Estonia, 500 of which will be permanently based.

In response, Russia has moved its own troops within its country near those borders, causing serious military tensions to rise among multiple nuclear-armed powers. Throughout 2016, the Russian and U.S. militaries have engaged in increasingly provocative and aggressive maneuvers against one another. This week, the U.S. began deploying 4,000 troops to Poland, “the biggest deployment of US troops in Europe since the end of the cold war.”

It was in this context that Corbyn said it is “unfortunate that troops have gone up to the border on both sides,” adding that “he wanted to see better relations between Russia, NATO and the EU.” The Labour leader explained that while Russia has engaged in serious human rights abuses both domestically and in Syria, there must be a “better relationships between both sides . . .  there cannot be a return to a Cold War mentality.”

The response to Corbyn’s call for better relations and de-escalation of tensions with Moscow was swift and predictable. The armed forces minister for Britain’s right-wing government, Mike Penning, accused Corbyn of being a collaborator with the Kremlin:

“These comments suggest that the Labour leader would rather collaborate with Russian aggression than mutually support Britain’s Nato allies. As with Trident, everything Labour says and does shows that they cannot be trusted with Britain’s national security.”

I am not aware that Russia has threatened to attack either the US or the UK; nor Europe for that matter. So why are US and UK troops massing on Russia's border? And why are Trump and Corbyn supposed to be traitors? Anyone calling for peace and de-escalation at this point should be hailed as a true patriot. Do warmongers "love" their country? Hell, no!

Did we have a national referendum which approved  a war with Russia? Has Congress authorized an attack on Russia? Is the US president now capable of starting a major war on his own authority during his last week in office, a war which cannot benefit We The People in any way?

The true existential threat to the US is the morons who now control the US "national security state" - Obama ad-Dajjal, Joe Biden, John McCain, John Brennan, and their ilk; and their apparent accomplices and enablers such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and George Soros.

It is truly sad so see how far into the abyss we have fallen.

On this Martin Luther King Day 2017, I urge all of you to read Dr. King's speech "Beyond Vietnam -- A Time to Break Silence". Here is a portion of what he said:

Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now. I speak as a child of God and brother to the suffering poor of Vietnam. I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted. I speak of the -- for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home, and death and corruption in Vietnam. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as one who loves America, to the leaders of our own nation: The great initiative in this war is ours; the initiative to stop it must be ours.

America did not want to hear anything like this in 1967, so Dr. King was murdered. Fifty years later, we apparently still do not want to hear it. Instead we continue to vilify and/or kill anyone who tries to make peace:

  • JFK
  • RFK
  • MLK
  • and now Trump?

But we had better listen, because this HAS to stop. This blood lust has nearly destroyed our nation, and it has the potential to put the final nails into our coffins.

What May Happen On Inauguration Day ???

Watch this 5 minute video to discover what may happen on Inauguration Day:

These do not appear to be "protests" - a more appropriate description would be "insurrection".

Sick, sick, sick.

Something Fishy In China

That smoked salmon you bought for the New Year's festivities has a story to tell.

The salmon may have been raised in Scotland -- but it probably began life as roe in Norway.

Harvested at a coastal farm, the fish may have been sent to Poland to be smoked.

It may even have travelled halfway around the world to China to be sliced.

It eventually arrived, wrapped in that tempting package, in your supermarket.

Globalisation has changed the world in many ways, but fish farming is one of the starkest examples of its benefits and hidden costs.

The nexus of the world fish-farming trade is China -- the biggest exporter of fish products, the biggest producer of farmed fish and a major importer as well.

With battalions of lost-cost workers, linked to markets by a network of ocean-going refrigerated ships, China is the go-to place for labour-intensive fish processing.

I eat mostly canned tuna, and it all seems to come from the Gulf of Thailand.

Nowhere To Hide

BAE Systems are designing a directed energy laser system that could allow military commanders to spy on enemy activities from space.

BAE believe that within 50 years, one of their aircraft could use an “atmospheric lens” to observe people from very long distances using the Earth’s atmosphere as a tool.

The lasers temporarily change the Earth’s atmosphere into magnifying glass structures which can alter light and radio signals.

This means users can listen into radio signals for thousands of miles.

A spokesperson said: “Within the next 50 years, scientists at BAE Systems believe that battlefield commanders could deploy a new type of directed energy laser and lens system, called a Laser Developed Atmospheric Lens which is capable of enhancing commanders’ ability to observe adversaries’ activities over much greater distances than existing sensors.”

Yes, they can spy on the rest of us too ... and undoubtedly will.

Eight Against The World

The gap between the super-rich and the poorest half of the global population is starker than previously thought, with just eight men, from Bill Gates to Michael Bloomberg, owning as much wealth as 3.6 billion people, according to an analysis by Oxfam released Monday.

Here are their names:

  • Bill Gates
  • Amancio Ortega
  • Warren Buffett
  • Carlos Slim Helu
  • Jeff Bezos
  • Mark Zuckerberg
  • Larry Ellison
  • Michael Bloomberg

Note well - these are people who are telling us how to lead our lives. Is their advice meant to benefit us ... or them. If not us, then why are we listening to them?

Who Will Actually Build Trump's Wall ???

According to this report, the wall already is mostly in place. Trump merely will complete and enlarge a barrier started by Bill Clinton:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2016/11/21/yes-trump-will-build-his-border-wall-most-of-it-is-already-built/

It is not yet clear who will do the physical construction necessary to complete and enlarge the wall. But reports from Censored News indicate that the following companies are likely to be involved in the electronic security and detainee control aspect of the barrier:

  • Israeli firm Elbit Systems
  • Israeli firm BTec Electronic Security Systems
  • London based G4S Corporation

See http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2016/07/new-report-israeli-arms-dealer-profits.html

and

http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2016/05/israeli-apartheid-contractors-on.html

Can you see anything wrong with allowing foreign companies to control the US border?

And why is there no truly US corporation (i.e., formed by US citizens, chartered by a US state, controlled by US investors, and not a subsidiary of some foreign corporation) capable of doing the job?

By the way, let's look at some relevant numbers:

(1) Palestinians killed at least 20 Israelis in 2015 (source - https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2016/country-chapters/israel/palestine)

(2) But according to some sources, "illegal immigrants" kill at least 20 people in the US EVERY DAY (here is one of those sources - http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/03/30/dad-turns-grief-from-sons-death-into-quest-to-tabulate-toll-illegal-drivers.html)

We (US taxpayers) have built a wall to separate Israel from the Palestinians, but somehow it's "insane" to suggest building a wall to separate the US from an even greater threat.

But maybe giving Israelis the contracts to build and maintain Trump's Wall is a blessing in disguise. After all, Trump and the rest of our political class bend over backwards to kiss Israeli asses, so in their rush to shovel more of our cash over to Israeli firms maybe it means the wall actually will get built.

Mad As Hell

If you want to understand why Trump won the recent US presidential election, you can't overlook the economic data.  If you do, his victory may look mighty confusing, alarming even.  But once you understand the degree to which the average US family and the entire Gen-X and Millennial generations are being completely hosed economically, everything starts to take shape.

Clearly the Hollywood types and other US elites don't give a damn about such things. They're rolling in loot which should have been OUR wage increases.

"Our" government is lying about nearly everything and continually taking actions which are detrimental to We The People. When are we going to say "enough is enough"?
