Erdogan Tells Turks in Germany to Vote Against Merkel

While the Democrats want to make a huge issue out of Russia hacking their files and releasing evidence that they were truly corrupt and how Clinton was just a liar blaming Russia rather than themselves, interference in the elections of other countries is par for the course. I have reported how Obama has interfered in Canada, Britain, and France. This is standard operational procedure. Now Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan publicly told all Turks living in Germany to vote against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats on September 24th.
For Erdogan to publicly try to influence the German elections as Obama did in Britain tell them to get to the ‘back of queue’ if they voted for BREXIT, demonstrates the lack of unity between the NATO allies and major trade partners.

The Costs Of Ignoring Russia

Current mutual hostility threatens an explosive confrontation
***
Improving the dangerously unstable U. S.-Russia relationship will be very difficult, but it is important for U. S. national security. Current mutual hostility threatens an explosive confrontation that could destroy American (and Russian) civilization as we know it. Short of that, Russia can do much more than it is today to damage U. S. interests and values without taking extreme risks. Accordingly, the United States should explore normalizing its interaction with Russia. Washington should do so without illusions, and from a position of strength.
Today, America and Russia are adversaries with different approaches to key international issues, different systems of government and, in many respects, different values. Each confronts domestic obstacles to efforts to establish better relations. These obstacles are particularly challenging in the United States, where Congress, the mainstream media and much of the American public view Vladimir Putin’s Russia as a vicious enemy akin to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, if not Hitler’s Germany. Unlike China, Russia has only limited economic interaction with America – and therefore few Americans see a practical positive side to contacts with Russia. President Putin has much greater latitude in shaping his country’s foreign policy, including exploring a new beginning with Washington. Yet in a period of economic difficulty before Russia’s 2018 presidential election, Putin is loath to appear weak under foreign pressure.

The World Is Changing And Nations Are Waking Up To What’s Really Going On – Episode 1357b

The following video was published by X22Report on Aug 16, 2017
The corporate media is pushing the agenda of pushing race wars in the US. They are pushing very hard just like they pushed the Russian collusion, which turned out to be fake. Lavrov states that US should back off with making threats to Venezuela. US and Japan hold drills near North Korea. Germany is now siding with China and Russia in regards to North Korea. Syrian forces pushing very hard in Syria and they are pushing through IS. As the terrorists are pushed out of Syria 600,000 refugees are returning home to Syria.

In America Propaganda Has Vanquished Truth

In Durham, North Carolina, the seat of Duke University, a gang of largely white males destroyed public property by pulling down a statue of a Confederate soldier. Perhaps they took their cue from the neo-Nazis installed in Ukraine by Obama and Hillary following the US-engineered coup that overthrew the elected democratic government. The first thing the new Obama-installed neo-Nazi regime did was to pull down all the Soviet war memorials of the liberation of Ukraine from Nazi Germany. The neo-Nazis who pulled down the war memorials were the descendants of the Ukrainians who fought for Nazi Germany. These neo-Nazis comprise the government of the ‘democracy’ that Obama and Hillary brought to the Ukraine and is the government that the US government and its European vassals support.
What did the destruction of public property in Durham achieve, and where were the police?
What the films of the event reveal is a collection of crazed white people, mainly white men, kicking and spitting at a bronze statue and jumping back as if the statue were going to strike back. It was a display of ignorant psychopathic hatred.
Where did this hatred come from and why was it directed at a statue? To the ignorant gangsters, most likely Duke University students, the destroyed statue is a symbol of slavery.

Hellstorm The Documentary

Some readers reacted to my review of David Irving’s book about the Nuremberg showtrial of Germans during 1945-46 with the comment that Irving understates allied criminality. Several sent me links to a documentary made recently by Americans based on midwestern American Thomas Goodrich’s history, Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944-47. There are 147 customer reviews of the book on amazon.com and 75% of the reviews are 5 star. Evidently, not even Zionist trolls were able to bury the book.
Not much of this documentary has to be true in order to reach the conclusion that what the Americans, British, and above all the Soviets did to Germans during the war and in the war’s final days and, worse, after the war, dwarfs in its inhumanity and illegality everything the Nazis did. More Germans died during the two years after the war than died in fighting the Amerians and British during the war. Mass exterminations of Germans and systematic rape of German females as young as eight years old were going on during the Nuremberg trials. What happened to Germans fit the program for the genocide of Germany advocated by the Jewish US Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morganthau.
Nazi Germany is the most demonized entity in modern history, and the demonization continues. To whom did the killer bitch compare the Russian President in order to demonize him but to Hitler. Seventy-two years after the end of WW 2 Hollywood still produces movies that vilify Germany. Consequently, few historians have dared to write about what was done to Germans. But Thomas Goodrich did, and Kyle Hunt made a documentary from the book. Judging from the screen credits, many Americans were involved in producing the documentary. Little doubt but they have all been labeled ‘white supremacists.’ (White supremacist is a curious term. Obama is partly black, but he declared the white supremacy doctrine of the neoonservatives when he said that Americans were the exceptional people and America was the indispensable country.’)

Germany Government Trying to Cover-up Continuing Refugee Crisis Before Election

It should come as no surprise that the Merkel government has been trying to hide the extent of the ongoing refugee crisis in Germany. The Merkel government appears to be trying to keep police surveillance of border controls top secret. Despite the fact that Merkel did close the Balkan route into Germany, the federal police continue to report there is a ‘high number of migrants’ entering Germany through the border with Austria. The migration to Germany is continuing. Back in 2015, Merkel boldly said Germany could accommodate 500,000 migrants annually for the next several years, and that $6.6 billion had been set aside for costs related to processing and accommodating them. Germany and Sweden give the refugees the most money for just coming there. Refugees in Germany receive up to 346 per month from the state, in Sweden, the monthly allowance is up to 224. In Britain, the equivalent sum is 217. This is why Germany is the number one destination. This is money to them that was often a one-year’s wage in a single month plus room and board.

Trade War with Russia Disguised as Sanctions?

The US sanctions voted on by Congress against Russia are outrageous and an act of War that history will write as this may have been the line in the sand crossed by the USA to punish Russia for Hillary’s loss. Clearly, the new sanctions have important implications for Europe because they target any company that contributes to the development, maintenance or modernization of Russia’s energy export pipelines. This sanction reeks of politics that is really a trade war disguised as national security and pride. We have to dig deeper to see which politicians are getting paid by the American energy industry now and for the next election.
These sanctions would surely affect a controversial pipeline project between Russia and Germany known as Nord Stream 2, which is owned by Gazprom but includes financial stakes from European companies. The project aims to carry Russian natural gas under the Baltic Sea, bypassing countries like Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic States. When US President Donald Trump visited Poland in July 2017, he said that the US would increase its liquefied petroleum gas supplies (LNG) to Europe, which was very enthusiastically supported by the Poles. This was obviously a statement that was a direct competition with Gazprom that would distort competition for the European energy market.

U.S. SANCTIONS BILL ADDS MORE TARGETS TO THE LIST; U.S. SET TO SANCTION ITSELF INTO ISOLATION

With the new U. S. sanctions bill having been passed by a united Congress and signed by a President allegedly opposed to it, U. S. sanctions are now all over the news. But the sanctions bill was not just a step toward a second Cold War with Russia, the bill was also aimed at North Korea, Iran, China, and even Europe. In his excellent study of the bill, ‘U. S. Sanctions: A ‘Loony Tunes’ Bad Remake; ‘Irreversible Decline Of The U. S. As A Global Superpower,’ F. William Engdahl described the legislation as being a ‘nuclear barrel bomb with sanctions flying in all directions.’ Sadly, Engdahl is right.
Without going into a detailed analysis of the bill, suffice it to say that it is aimed directly at Russia, Iran, and North Korea but that it threatens anyone and any country that does business with specific elements of the Iranian, North Korean, or Russian economy. This means that China, Germany, and the European Union as a whole have been put on notice that business as usual will subject them to United States sanctions, ‘allies’ or not.
Once again, the United States is declaring to the world that it is the emperor of the planet and any country (save for Israel) who acts in opposition to its whims is in danger of sanctions or worse.

Poland May Demand Billions In Reparations From Germany For World War II

As deep cracks have emerged in the formerly pristine diplomatic relations between Poland and the EU over the past few months, some burried ghosts from Europe’s past are making an unexpected come back.
Eight years after the fall of the Nazi regime, Poland decided to forego further reparations from Germany. But now there are renewed calls for those reparations to be paid. More than 72 years after the end of the Second World War, Polish politicians are demanding that Germany pay their country reparations. A research office of Poland’s lower house of parliament, the Sejm, is reviewing whether this would be possible according to TheLocal.
The analysis should be complete by August 11th, Sejm representative Arkadiusz Mularczyk of the leading Law and Justice party (PiS) told news agency PAP last week. The review comes after comments made by the powerful head of the PiS, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who last week accused Germany of “rejecting” its Second World War responsibilities, going as far as to suggest Berlin should pay reparations.

Down The Memory Hole Goes The Truth

Down The Memory Hole Goes The Truth
When German newspaper editor Udo Ulfkotte’s book was published in Germany several years ago, I brought it to the attention of my readers. The book explained why Europe moved in lockstep with Washington. Ulfkotte reported that every significant journalist in Europe had connections to the CIA. This confirmed what I had learned from my Ph. D. dissertation chairman who was appointed Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. I asked him how Washington managed to get other governments to do what Washington wanted even when it was not in the best interests of their countries. He replied, ‘money.’ ‘You mean foreign aide,’ I asked. ‘No,’ he said, ‘we give the leaders bags of money.’ In other words, it is not only the European journalists who are bought but also the European politicians.
The English language edition of Ulfkotte’s book has been suppressed, tossed down the Memory Hole. Americans are not to know as it would interfere with the CIA’s control of the explanations that keep Americans in The Matrix.
Below is James Tracy’s account. -PCR –
English Translation of Udo Ulfkotte’s ‘Bought Journalists’ Suppressed?
By James F. Tracy
August 01, 2017 ‘Information Clearing House’ – The English translation of German journalist Udo Ulfkotte’s best-selling book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) appears to have been suppressed throughout North America and Europe. On May 15, 2017 Next Revelation Press, an imprint of US-Canadian-based publisher Tayen Lane, released the English version of Bought Journalists, under the title, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News.

Erdogan moving Turkey Closer to Dictatorship

Germany is now pushing the EU towards a much more tougher policy in its relations with Turkey as Erdogan moves the country ever closer to a full-blown dictatorship. Erdogan has rejected democracy and the rule of law and since the strike of the Putsch, which is characterized by the dismissal of thousands of government officials, mass arrests without legal procedures, and the prosecution of independent media and critics, it is clear that he is not tolerating opposition. This implies a departure from the European model of democratic values -and principles of the rule of law and the actions of Turkey are at odds with the fundamental principles of membership in the EU and NATO.

Poll Finds More Germans Fear Climate Change Than Terrorism

For a time back in 2015, there were widespread concerns that the spike in terrorist attacks in Germany in the aftermath of Angela Merkel’s open door policy which admitted 1 million refugees in Germany from the middle east would lead to a popular wave of unrest, perhaps culminating with the unseating of Angela Merkel as Chancellor. It now appears that the Germans had more pressing concerns on their mind like… global warming.
According to a new poll ahead of the German national election in September, Germans are more concerned about the future state of the environment than they are about more headline-grabbing topics like terrorism or the refugee crisis. The survey released on Tuesday conducted by research group Kantar Emnid Institute on behalf of publishing group Funke Mediengruppe found that 71% of respondents said they were personally more concerned about climate change. This worry ranked higher than the possibility of new wars, listed by 65% of survey participants, and also above terror attacks, listed by 63%.
Crime was noted as a worry by 62% of the 1,000 participants surveyed, who were able to list more than one fear.
But the most surprising finding is that less than half of those polled, or 45%, said they were anxious about the immigration of refugees into the country, while the lowest concern was unemployment 33% .
Ironically, as the Local.de points out, while climate change was the biggest concern named by Germans, the topic doesn’t seem to be winning any more support for the environment-conscious Green party, which is currently polling at around 8% .

Can Germany Be Made Great Again?

When Germany Was Great! Ever since the start of the deliberately conceived ‘migrant crisis,’ orchestrated by NWO elites, the news out of Germany has been, to say the least, horrific. Right before the eyes of the world, a country is being demographically destroyed through a coercive plan of mass migration. The intended consequences of this – financial strain, widespread crime and property destruction, the breakdown of German culture – will continue to worsen if things are not turned around.
***
Those in opposition to the societal destruction within Germany have been harassed and persecuted by the authorities and labeled with the usual epithets by the mass media: ‘far right,’ ‘neo-Nazis’, ‘haters,’ and heaven forbid, ‘separatists’. Because of this and other factors, no mass movement has coalesced as of yet to truly challenge the German political establishment.
Indications of a possible reversal of German fortunes, however, have come from a recent poll of Bavarians. A survey conducted by YouGov, a market research company, found that 32% of Bavarians agreed with the statement that Bavaria ‘should be independent from Germany.’ The percentage of secession-minded Bavarians has increased from 25% in a poll conducted in 2011. Of the around 2000 people surveyed between June 24 and July 5, most supporters of independence come from the southern portions of the country.
Whether Bavarians or their fellow German separatists realize it or not, the only ‘political’ solution to the migrant crisis is secession. This is not only true for Germany, but for all Western nation states swamped with unwanted migrants. Once free from the domination of the national government (and just as important the EU), each jurisdiction could make its own immigration policy and would be better able to control population influx at the local level.

Germany: Muslim Biker Gang Vows To “Protect” Fellow Muslims

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,
Muslim vigilantes enforcing Islamic justice have become increasingly common in Germany. The government’s inability or unwillingness to stop them has led to the rise of anti-Muslim counter-vigilantes. Germany’s BfV intelligence agency, in its latest annual report, warned that an escalating action-reaction cycle could result in open warfare on German streets. The self-appointed “Sharia Police” urged both Muslim and non-Muslim passersby to attend mosques and to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, music, pornography and prostitution. In November 2016, the Wuppertal District Court ruled that the Islamists did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech. The ruling, which effectively legitimized Sharia law in Germany, was one of a growing number of instances in which German courts are – wittingly or unwittingly – promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in the country. “Even if we still refuse to believe it: Parts of Germany are ruled by Islamic law! Polygamy, child marriages, Sharia judges – for far too long the German rule of law has not been enforced. Many politicians dreamed of multiculturalism…. This is not a question of folklore or foreign customs and traditions. It is a question of law and order. If the rule of law fails to establish its authority and demand respect for itself, then it can immediately declare its bankruptcy.” – Franz Solms-Laubach, parliamentary correspondent, Bild. German Muslims have established a self-styled biker gang – modelled on the Hells Angels – aimed at protecting fellow Muslims from the “ever-growing hatred of Islam,” according to Die Welt.

Killing Them Is Killing Us

The murdered cannot forgive. Their blood won’t be washed.
***
There is something eerily fascinating about cold-blooded murderers – a staple of Hollywood thrillers and crime dramas – killing without emotion or remorse. Ordinary humans, afflicted with guilt for minor, not even criminal transgressions, can’t conceive of pulling the trigger and then sitting down for dinner. In real life, the number of people who can is glancingly small. Even for those few, actions have consequences. The blood never washes away.
‘Live and let live,’ is, in American mythology, a benevolent and almost uniquely American attitude. We destroyed Japan and Germany in World War II and then helped rebuild them. Live and let live goes down well with the living, the winners. However, it’s often nothing more than balm for an uneasy conscience, hand sanitizer for bloodstained hands. A century and a half later, many Southerners lack this ‘unique’ American attitude towards their conquerers in the War of Northern Aggression.

AS SENATE MOVES FORWARD ON SANCTIONS, TRUMP SAYS HE MAY SCRAP IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL IN SEPTEMBER

President Trump, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal last Thursday, said he expects Iran to be non-compliant with the terms of the JCPOA nuclear deal by next September, despite his admission that the Islamic Republic has not violated the deal to date.
‘We’ve been extremely nice to them in saying they were compliant,’ Trump told the Journal. ‘Personally, I have great respect for my people, but if it was up to me, I would have had them noncompliant 180 days ago,’ adding ‘We’ll talk about the subject in 90 days but I would be surprised if they were in compliance.’
The nuclear deal, signed by the P5+1 (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the U. S., plus Germany) in Vienna in July 2015, put Iran’s civilian nuclear energy program under the strictest inspections and safeguards regime to ever exist, cut Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium by 98 percent and reduced the number of Iranian gas centrifuges by about two-thirds, among many other things. Those Iranian concessions were supposed to be met with the waiving of American, European Union and UN sanctions and the recovery of about $100 billion in Iranian assets.
Every 90 days, the U. S. must declare whether or not Iran is abiding by the terms of the agreement and determine if waived sanctions should be reimposed or remain lifted.

Washington Pushes Harder Against Russia – Paul Craig Roberts

Some historians believe that the cause of WW2 was UK prime minister Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler’s recovery of German territory given to other countries via the Versailles Treaty in contravention of US President Woodrow Wilson’s promise to Germany that there would be no reparations and no loss of territory if Germany agreed to an armistance ending WW1.
I do not agree. The facts seem clear. The cause of WW2 was the gratuitous and unenforceable guarantee to the Polish military government given by Chamberlain that if Poland refused to hand German lands and populations back to Germany, Great Britain would be there to support Poland. When Germany and the Soviet Union made the deal to split Poland between them and attacked, Britain due to its stupid ‘guarantee’ declared war on Germany, but not on the Soviet Union. As France was aligned by treaty with Britain, France, too, had to declare war. Because of the reign of propaganda in the West, hardly anyone knows this, but WW2 was started by the British and French declaration of war on Germany. Yet, it was the surviving members of the German regime who were put on trial by the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in Nuremberg for initiating aggressive war.
Nevertheless, as the general opinion is that Chamberlain encouraged Hitler to ever more aggressive actions by the British failure to respond, why has no one pointed out that the Russian government’s lack of response to Washington’s aggressive actions toward Russia encourages Washington to become more aggressive. This also is leading to war.

Sanctions Tit-for-Tat: Moscow Orders US to Cut Its Embassy Staff, Close Storage Facilities

21st Century Wire says…
This week the US House of Representatives voted to impose new sanctions on Russia which will ultimately force the hand of President Donald Trump to either veto the bill, or be required to court Congress to obtain lawmakers’ permission before any move to ease sanctions against Russia is initiated.
As a result of this, and previous aggressive moves by President Obama, the Kremlin has begun the process of ‘tit for tat’ retaliation. Moscow believes that US-led sanctions are unwarranted and unfriendly in diplomatic terms.
Surprisingly, the EU, including leading member states France and Germany have also weighed-in to criticise punitive US sanctions – believing that such sanctions will damage Europe’s trade with Russia and overall EU economic interests.
The US sanctions bill against Russia also targets Washington-designated ‘axis of evil’ nations Iran and North Korea.
Despite Trump’s willingness to reach out to Russia – the DC swamp keeps winding-up the tension with Moscow. According to House Speaker, Paul Ryan, the bill ‘tightens the screws on our most dangerous adversaries in order to keep Americans safe.’
