A North Korean EMP Attack Can Create 90+ Fukushimas in the U.S.

First, a salute to All News Pipeline, where Stefan Stanford and Susan Duclos have been continuously releasing letters written by Dr. Peter V. Pry, the foremost American expert on the EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) threat against the U. S. Please visit All News Pipelineand read the latest two articles by Dr. Pry regarding North Korea’s definitive nuclear threat to the U. S., a threat the Mainstream Media (MSM) are either ignoring or downplaying: the former due to narcissistic arrogance, and the latter – a treasonous obfuscation of the facts.
Here are the articles’ titles, so that you can refer to them:
North Korea could win the Nuclear War! This is how one North Korean Nuclear-Armed Satellite Could Cripple the US Military and Lead to TEOTWAWKI, December 8, 2017. The Rules of the Game Have Changed! America’s Total Vulnerability to this Existential Threat Shows How Fake News Could Help Turn America into a Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland, December 9, 2017. These articles are replete with useful information and diagrams showing the orbital trajectory of the North Korean satellites that pass over the continental U. S. daily, and multiple times apiece. The first article explains how the North Koreans can win a nuclear war with the United States by striking first with an EMP: it goes into detail about how such a strike would negate our infrastructure and response. The second article gives information about the history of EMP tests over the past decades, and the media complicity in covering up the threats posed by several nations.
There is another thing besides Dr. Pry’s warnings that needs to be taken into consideration, and that is America’s Nuclear Power Plants and supplies of spent fuel rods. Here is a photo of the Nuclear Power Plants across the United States:

UK Government’s ‘Free Syrian’ Rabbit Hole: Afshin Rattansi Interviews Vanessa Beeley on Going Underground

Over the past four years, the UK government has poured over 200 million of tax payer funds into a failed proxy military intervention and illegal shadow state-building project in Syria. This week, the penny finally dropped…
Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi speaks to guest Vanessa Beeley from 21WIRE about our recent story which forced the government and mainstream media to take evasive action, closing ranks in order to cover-up a wider scandal involving UK Foreign Office funding for the White Helmets and Nusra Front terrorist affiliates in Syria.

HERE’S PROOF THAT 91 PERCENT OF DEMOCRATS ARE CLUELESS DUPES BECAUSE ALL THEY WATCH AND READ IS FAKE NEWS

As we have regularly documented on this site, the so-called ‘mainstream media’ is replete with hucksters, frauds, liars, and phonies. In fact, truth be told, the vast majority of establishment media types are little more than far-Left hacks and shills for the Democratic Party.
That helps explain a rather remarkable finding in a recently-conducted survey by one of the very purveyors of misleading, false, and fake news: CBS News. [That wasn’t always the case, by the way, because CBS Newsused to employ crack investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson – who has reported the truth about the dangers of vaccines.] The network conducted a poll claiming that Americans were ‘split’ on the so-called ‘Russia’ investigation being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller (with a very Democrat-heavy, anti-Trump staff, by the way).
The poll found that most Republicans believe the Russian probe is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt. But 91 percent of Democrats say that it’s a ‘serious matter’ that ought to worry President Donald J. Trump.

DNI Orders Changes To US “Unmasking” Policy

Remember how the mainstream media scoffed last spring when President Trump claimed the Obama administration spied on his campaign? As it turns out, Trump was right – the FISA Court authorized monitoring of Trump campaign aide Carter Page and, perhaps more egregiously, the FBI monitored Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort during and after the campaign. But still, few in the mainstream media have acknowledged this, preferring instead to stand by their original narrative.
Similarly, the mainstream media ignored Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice when she copped to authorizing the unmasking of Trump campaign officials in intelligence reports – an act of political retribution that Rice justified by claiming she was just trying to determine why a crown prince of the UAE was paying a clandestine visit to New York.
As it turns out, nearly a year after the scandal surrounding Rice’s unmasking, DNI Dan Coats – America’s top intelligence official – has ordered tighter restrictions on how the names of Americans kept secret in intelligence reports can be revealed during presidential transitions, according to documents seen by Reuters.

CNN Botches “Bombshell” Report “Proving” Collusion Between Trump Jr And Wikileaks

Cable news networks just can’t seem to get their facts straight when it comes to publishing purportedly damning reports about the Trump campaign’s efforts to ‘collude’ with the Russians.
Last week, ABC News suspended reporter Brian Ross after Ross reported that Mike Flynn had agreed to testify that Trump ordered him to reach out to the Russian government during the campaign – something that, if true, would’ve validated the mainstream media’s collusion narrative and potentially placed the president in serious legal jeopardy.
Shortly after publishing its initial report, ABC was forced to issue a crucial correction: Flynn actually planned to testify that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner ordered him to reach out to representatives of the Russian government during the transition. This changed the whole context from something that would’ve been overtly illegal to something much more mundane. The correction was issued – but not before the Dow shed 350 points.
Today, it was CNN’s turn to bungle a ‘bombshell’ concerning the Trump campaign and Wikileaks.
To wit, Trump’s favorite fake news network has issued a correction to a Friday morning ‘exclusive’ claiming that Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign staff received a directive from Wikileaks to download a trove of emails stolen from the DNC before those emails were made public. CNN initially claimed the Wikileaks email was dated Sept. 4 – ten days before the watchdog publicly released its filings.

Breaking: Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Young Nelson Admits She FORGED Her Yearbook As ABC News Reporter Openly Coaches Her

In what has become a bombshell admission, Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson has now openly admitted that she forged a portion of her infamous high school yearbook that was used as ‘proof’ of the disgusting accusations against the Alabama Senate candidate.
During an interview with ABC News, Nelson made the bombshell admission which was immediately glossed over by the mainstream media reporter who acted as if her admitting she forged at least part of the yearbook was no big deal.
As Breitbart reported, ‘In yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding ‘notes’ to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplay the enormous significance of her deceit.’

The Collapse Of Media (And What You Can Do About It)

Authored by Nafeez Ahmed and Andrew Markell via CounterPunch.org,
When a system enters into the final stage of its deterioration – whether that is an institutional system, a state, an empire, or the human body – all the important information flows that support coherent communication breakdown. In this final stage, if this situation is not corrected the system will collapse and die.
It has become obvious to nearly everyone that we have reached this stage on the planet and in our democratic institutions. We see how the absolute dysfunction of the global information architecture? – ?represented in the intersection of mainstream media outlets, social technology platforms and giant digital aggregators? – ?is generating widespread apathy, despair, insanity and madness at a scale that is terrifying.
And we are right to be terrified, because this situation is paralyzing us from taking the action required to solve global and local challenges. While liberals fight conservatives and conservatives fight liberals we lose precious time.
While progressives fight government, the corporations and the super-rich we drown in despair. While philanthropists, fueled by their own certainty and wealth, fight for justice or equality or for some poor hamlet in Africa we become apathetic and distracted from the real source of the problem. And while the president fights everyone and everyone fights the president, the collective goes mad.

IN 24 HOURS, MULTIPLE FALSE MEDIA REPORTS CAUSE AN AIR STRIKE ON IRAN AND FINANCIAL MARKETS TO CRASH

Here is data showing how @ABC News crashed the market on fake news.
This is real.
This matters. pic.twitter.com/AaGKVlTYEO
— Benny (@bennyjohnson) December 2, 2017

Despite the fact that trust in the mainstream media is at an all-time low, reports from the media can still have major international repercussions – even when they are false. In fact, in just 24 hours, false media stories caused financial stocks to crash and led to an airstrike that could have provoked a war.
Former U. S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to FBI agents about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. ABC’s original report claimed that Donald Trump ordered Flynn to contact Russian officials during the 2016 election when he was still a candidate.
However, Trump actually ordered Flynn to contact the officials after he became president-elect. The original claim was made by ABC News Investigative Reporter Brian Ross, who said he was quoting an anonymous source. This method was used by the mainstream media throughout the election to push exaggerated claims with no evidence.
While ABC brushed off the mistake as nothing more than issuing a simple correction to one of their reports, the allegations from their ‘anonymous source’ had serious repercussions. Ross made the claim during a ‘Special Report’ from ABC News at 11 a.m. on Friday. Within minutes of the report, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 350 points.

Will Macedonia Be Removed From The Map In 2018?

Authored by Andrew Korybko via Oriental Review,
The future looks very grim for Macedonia as the newly installed pro-Western coup ‘government’ wastes no time in dismantling the country’s identity and selling out sovereignty to some of its hostile neighbors, both of which could have the cumulative effect of erasing what is constitutionally known as the Republic of Macedonia from the world map by sometime next year and replacing it with a domestically reconstituted ‘federalized’ (internally partitioned) entity internationally recognized by a ‘politically correct’ ‘compromise’ moniker.
Backdrop To The Balkans
The tiny South-Central Balkan country of the Republic of Macedonia is in dire straits right now, but most of Europe – let alone the rest of the world – has no idea that this is the case because the Mainstream Media narrative is that the state’s two-year-long political crisis was ‘resolved’ when the patriotic VMRO-DPMNE government of Nikola Gruevski was replaced in a ‘constitutional/electoral coup’ that followed Color Revolution and even Hybrid War provocations. The author wrote about this in a Sputnik piece at the time from May 2017 titled ‘The Macedonian Crisis Isn’t Over, and a Bigger Balkan One is Just Beginning’, and the reader should review that article and also skim through his Oriental Review & Sputnik archives on the topic if they’re not already familiar with the contextual backdrop of what happened and why.

Is President Trump’s Legal Team Preparing For An Imminent “Obstruction Of Justice” Charge?

President Trump set off a new wave of mainstream media outrage over the weekend when he publicly admitted that he was aware that Flynn had lied to the FBI and Vice President when he made the decision to fire him. Not surprisingly, the Left has used the admission to once again suggest that Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey for simply pursuing charges against someone who Trump himself already knew to be guilty.
I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

MSM Masterpiece Theatre: Claims of ‘800,000 Secret Documents About Assad’s War Crimes’

21st Century Wire says…
You can really tell the establishment are getting desperate when they start pushing out stories like this one – wildly creative tabloid tall tales, props included – all wrapped and packaged to look like news.
This latest installment of Mainstream Media Masterpiece Theatre is claiming that:
‘Papers reveal corpses stacked in hallways, bodies with eyes gouged out and unexplained disappearances.’

‘This innocuous room contains 800,000 pages of potential evidence to build a case that may lead to the most significant war crimes trial since Nuremberg.’
As it turns out, the man who drew the short straw and was asked to launder this story on extra-rinse cycle is none other than Ian Birrell, who has a tremendous set of awards to his name, but that might not be enough to prop-up this howler of story.

Reports: Former Top FBI Agent Who Investigated Both Hillary And Trump Was A Hardcore Clinton Supporter Who Frequently Attacked Donald Trump

In yet another shocking example of the hardcore anti-Trump sentiment running through the very agencies who are ‘investigating’ the president, a former top FBI official who investigated both Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Trump’s supposed ties to Russia was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe after text messages surfaced between the official and his mistress that included overt anti-Trump political viewpoints.
The FBI agent, Peter Strzok, was deputy head of counterintelligence at the agency which put him in a position to be a ‘key player’ in the Hillary investigation as well as the probe into supposed collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
That’s right, the man who the mainstream media admits was a key player in the Clinton investigation was a Hillary supporter the entire time. To make matters worse, after Trump won, Strzok was directly involved in the sham investigation into supposed collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election in which his preferred candidate lost.
The Washington Post reported:
During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

Inside the Mind of Hillary Clinton

In her new book What Happened, Hillary Clinton explains why she lost the presidential election last year.
She blames sexism. She blames Trump’s outrageous conduct. She blames Vice President Joe Biden. She blames Obama. She blames Trump’s ‘deplorable’ supporters. She blames FBI Director James Comey and ‘those damn emails.’ She blames the Russians. She blames The New York Times and other media outlets which generally fawned over her campaign. She blames the laws of physics. She blames white women.
But, of course, she certainly didn’t blame Hillary Clinton. In this no mea culpa memoir, she explains it was many others, but not her. She was the victim of a series of electoral scams that denied her the presidency.
This is the relentless theme that Hillary Clinton sticks to through almost 500 pages in a flawed memoir of why she stunningly lost last year’s election.
Echoes of 1948 and 2000 The presidential election was a unique event; a once-in-our-lifetimes contest. It was an electoral earthquake; one in which Hillary Clinton copied the blunders of Thomas Dewey in 1948 and Al Gore in 2000. (In 1948, many pollsters stopped polling early in the campaign, convinced that President Truman had no chance for re-election. In 2000, we constantly heard in the mainstream media that George W. Bush was a human blank who would be easily bested by the ‘brilliant’ Gore. However, somehow Gore didn’t win the debates and later didn’t even win his home state of Tennessee.)

Michael Flynn Charged With Lying To The FBI While Deep State Obama Operative James Clapper Is Allowed to Commit ‘Brazen Perjury’ On National TV

In what the entire mainstream media is reporting as a ‘bombshell’, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has been charged with lying to the FBI about a series of legal conversations he had with the Russian ambassador that included talk on how better to take out ISIS.
‘The charging document states that Flynn made a false statement to the FBI when he stated that in December 2016 he did not ask Kislyak ‘to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia that same day; and Flynn did not recall the Russian ambassador subsequently telling him that Russia had chosen to moderate its response to those sanctions as a result of his request,’ reported CNN.
In comparison, Obama and deep state operative James Clapper has committed open perjury multiple times over the years and literally nothing has happened to him. I guess being a globalist operative has its perks.

The Internecine Deep State Conflict Moves to Stage Two

It now seems evident that the Neoliberal Camp of the U. S. Deep State is highly vulnerable on an individual basis. I’m reprinting the essay below for those interested, as nothing has emerged to change the conclusions. I tend to notice things like a year-old blog entry suddenly getting thousands of page views. The essay that received a surge of recent interest: Is the Deep State at War–With Itself? (December 13, 2016). That in itself reveals that the internecine war within America’s Deep State is if anything heating up as those attempting to hang a “Russian collusion” narrative on their Deep State opponents have failed to produce any proof of this collusion despite a year of effort. Then all of a sudden big political donor Harvey Weinstein gets taken down for behaviors that have been well-known within the circles of power for 20+ years. So what changed? Why did Mr. Weinstein’s protective wall suddenly fail after serving him so effectively for decades? But Mr. Weinstein was only the first to fall. Now high-profile figures across the mainstream media are toppling like dominoes. Doesn’t it seem a bit peculiar that all these Protected Privileged are suddenly being exposed, disgraced and removed from positions of influence and power? Maybe it’s just random coincidence, but I doubt it. It has the scent of an intentional covert campaign. It’s well known that the mainstream media and Hollywood has been in bed with the security agencies for decades, and so it seems non-random that suddenly all these big-shots have lost their Protected Privileged Status more or less at once.

Sweden’s New Government Censorship Exposed

Authored by Judith Bergman via The Gatestone Institute,
In the report, placing the word “refugees” in quotation marks, as well as “unaccompanied children,” is supposedly an expression of “hate”. (Many, if not most, migrants classified as “unaccompanied children” have turned out to be grown men). Government agencies are going out of their way to protect the “integrity” of possible jihadists out of concern for a “democratic society” — the society that these jihadists want to subvert and destroy — and are using their government platform to smear non-mainstream media for matters as small as the use of quotation marks. What about the “integrity” of Swedish citizens and their right to not be blown up? Why is a municipality sponsoring an organization that supports terrorists and even awarding it prizes? It appears that glorifying terrorism is acceptable in Sweden, so long as its victims are the Israeli children. Far from countering “hate”, Sweden appears to be doing all it can to strengthen Muslim extremism. The Swedish government is now officially questioning free speech. A government agency has declared so-called Swedish “new media” — news outlets that refuse to subscribe to the politically correct orthodoxies of the mainstream media — a possible threat to democracy. In a government report, tellingly called “The White Hatred” written by Totalfrsvarets forskningsinstitut (Total Defense Research Institute), a government agency under the Swedish Ministry of Defense, Swedish new media such as Samhllsnytt (formerly known as Avpixlat), Nyheter Idag and Nya Tider are lumped together with neo-Nazi media such as Nordfront.
“Hate” is defined broadly to include violent extremism, “hateful expressions”, jokes, internet trolling and even the use of certain quotation marks. For instance, in the report, placing the word “refugees” in quotation marks, as well as “unaccompanied children,” is supposedly an expression of “hate”. (Many, if not most, migrants classified as “unaccompanied children” have turned out to be grown men).

Repeat Deceit: How US Tries to Link Iran to Al Qaeda

When it comes to interpreting current events, no one does official conspiracy theories like the Unite States.
For years, Washington has tried to promulgate a propaganda campaign which tries to somehow link al Qaeda to Iran, or ISIS to Iran. For the mentally-challenged members of the right-wing media in the US, this isn’t a massive feat, as a large segment of that audience cannot even locate Iran on a global map. There is also the issue of US warhawks like Lindsey Graham and John McCain being proven pathological liars – who will say anything regardless of whether it’s based in actual fact. All of this contributes to a number of shallow, creative narratives which continuously circulate between FOX News, The Atlantic Magazine, Tel Aviv, Riyadh and the US Senate.
And just like the US and UK mainstream media’s coverage of Syria, the deep throat ‘source’ in this dossier is… al Qaeda.
This latest chapter in the US fantasy world of Iranian intrigue attempts to further the Israeli-favoured mythology, blaming Iran for all of the region’s woes. Make no mistake: the American neoconservative wing and their Israeli benefactors are determined to invent new conditions for war with Iran…

We Have Tripled The Number Of Store Closings From Last Year, And 20 Major Retailers Have Closed At Least 50 Stores In 2017

Did you know that the number of retail store closings in 2017 has already tripled the number from all of 2016? Last year, a total of 2,056 store locations were closed down, but this year more than 6,700 stores have been shut down so far. That absolutely shatters the all-time record for store closings in a single year, and yet nobody seems that concerned about it. In 2008, an all-time record 6,163 retail stores were shuttered, and we have already surpassed that mark by a very wide margin. We are facing an unprecedented retail apocalypse, and as you will see below, the number of retail store closings is actually supposed to be much higher next year.
Whenever the mainstream media reports on the retail apocalypse, they always try to put a positive spin on the story by blaming the growth of Amazon and other online retailers. And without a doubt that has had an impact, but at this point online shopping still accounts for less than 10 percent of total U. S. retail sales.
Look, Amazon didn’t just show up to the party. They have been around for many, many years and while it is true that they are growing, they still only account for a very small sliver of the overall retail pie.
So those that would like to explain away this retail apocalypse need to come up with a better explanation.
As I noted in the headline, there are 20 different major retail chains that have closed at least 50 stores so far this year. The following numbers originally come from Fox Business…

Geert Wilders: “It’s Time To Drain The Swamp… In Europe”

Our democracies in the Western half of Europe have been subverted. Their goal is no longer to do what the people want. On the contrary, our political elites often do exactly the opposite. Our parliaments promote open-door policies that the majority of the people reject. Our governments sell out sovereignty to the EU against the will of the people. Our rulers welcome ever more Islam, although the majority of the people oppose it. Our democracies have become fake democracies. They are multi-party dictatorships, ruled by groups of establishment parties…. The establishment parties control everything, not just the politicians in their pay, but also the top brass of the civil service, the mainstream media, even the courts…. They call us “populists” because we stand for what the people want. They even drag us to court. We need to show that Europe’s streets are our streets, that we want to stay who and what we are, and do not want to be colonized by Islam. Europe belongs to us! Next month, I will be visiting Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. I have been invited to speak to a group of Czech patriots. The Czechs are a freedom loving people. In 2011, on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan, they named a street in Prague after this great American president and freedom fighter.
This fact reminded me of a shameful event in my home town of The Hague, the seat of the Dutch Parliament and the government of the Netherlands. Look for a Ronald Reagan Street in The Hague and you will find none. A proposal in 2011 to name a street in The Hague after Reagan ran into fierce political opposition. Leftist parties, such as Labor, the Greens and the liberal D66 party, argued that naming a street in honor of Reagan would “do the image of the city no good.” The whole affair ended in a disgraceful political compromise. Last year, a short stretch of a local bicycle path was named the “Reagan and Gorbachev Lane”.
