10 Characteristics of False Flag black operations of “Intelligence agencies”

The Vegas mass shooting may well be the most horribly botched “inside job” in modern history. Millions of newly-awakened people are getting their first chance to see a JFK, 9/11-style cover-up unfolding in real time.
A meta-analysis of the independent “citizen journalism” on this critical subject reveals that many key elements are missing, despite the unprecedented, massive number of contributors to the narrative.
A variety of insider reports suggest we are finally closing in on a civilization-defining moment of truth-telling and disclosure that could dramatically improve life on earth as we know it.
Our goal in sharing this with you is to shed light on this tragedy, expose the perpetrators and spread the information far and wide.
You are encouraged to make videos, write articles, borrow ideas (with credit), and contribute to the narrative in whatever way you can.
The best way we can honor the victims of this shocking tragedy is to make a strong push for the full truth to be exposed.
This is not 1963, nor 2001. The mainstream media has become a joke. If “they” won’t give us an honest version of the story, we need to write it ourselves.

Let’s say there was more than one shooter. Let’s say a monstrous cover-up is being perpetrated by the American corporate media.
Would that really surprise you? At this point in our history?
Before we discuss our view of this shocking catastrophe, let’s be clear that our suggestions will not be sudden, arbitrary “conspiracy theories.”
This tragic event, once properly understood and explained, can be seen as a direct continuation of what we have already exposed within our existing body of work for many years now.
All of the puzzle pieces have been meticulously laid out in numerous articles, books, YouTube videos, public lectures and episodes of Wisdom Teachings, my weekly TV show on Gaia.
Perhaps the single most important reference source is our free book Financial Tyranny, now with well over 2.4 million unique views at the time of this writing.

I am only one of millions of people investigating this subject to varying degrees, reaching conclusions not yet considered “accepted” by the mainstream.
If there is a way we can use this tragedy to help free ourselves, so more people haven’t simply died in vain, that is a cause worth fighting for.
You may have a hard time reading this as it goes on. Some of the information could be very triggering, though I will not show any gory photos.
I encourage you to stick with it, as if you were watching a spy thriller. This data might be a key ingredient in helping to make our world a better place.

The JFK assassination in 1963 was almost certainly not the work of a “lone gunman.”
9/11 was almost certainly not just “Arabs with Box Cutters.”
Thanks to the Internet, there are very few people left who subsist themselves only on a diet of “approved” corporate news stories, which can be ridiculous to an extreme.
Four days ago, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who wrote for the NY Times from 1990 to 2005 revealed that the elite corporate media has “no credibility left.”
This interview was rightfully flagged as being of extreme importance by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Here is just a taste of what the ex-NYT journalist Chris Hedges reveals — which includes corporate penetration of universities and scientific research itself:

10/6: The Elites Have No Credibility Left

On Monday, WSWS… interviewed Chris Hedges, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, lecturer and former New York Times correspondent….
DN: Chris, you worked for the New York Times. When was that, exactly?
CH: From 1990 to 2005….
Since the Times, like all elite institutions, is a hermetically sealed echo chamber, they do not realize how irrelevant they are becoming, or how ridiculous they look.
Thomas Friedman and David Brooks might as well write for the Onion.
I worked overseas. I wasn’t in the newsroom very much, but the paper is a very anxiety-ridden place.
The rules aren’t written on the walls, but everyone knows, even if they do not articulate it, the paper’s unofficial motto:
Do not significantly alienate those upon whom we depend for money and access!….

CH: The commercial broadcast networks, and that includes CNN and MSNBC, are not in the business of journalism. They hardly do any.
Their celebrity correspondents are courtiers to the elite. They speculate about and amplify court gossip, which is all the accusations about Russia, and they repeat what they are told to repeat.
They sacrifice journalism and truth for ratings and profit….
They have no credibility left. The scam has been found out. The global oligarchs are hated and reviled. The elite has no counterargument to our critique.
So they can’t afford to have us around.
As the power elite becomes more frightened, they’re going to use harsher forms of control, including the blunt instrument of censorship and violence.

The New York Times “got personal” when my book The Ascension Mysteries debuted at #11 on the Nielsen ratings last fall, but they refused to put it on their best-seller list, which is supposedly the top 20.
The entire book is filled with damning expose’s of a shadowy group that is manipulating governments, corporations, militaries and the mainstream media.
We debuted with double the sales of Hillary’s new book Stronger Together, right before the election, which was another surprising detail.
I was glad that the NYT let our first two volumes “slip through” before the fix went in, as it certainly adds credibility to the work as a published author.
In a way, having the NYT so blatantly censor this book was even more honorable and revealing than simply racking up a third title.
Anyone who had already read my book before this happened should have a much easier time understanding the details of this tragic event.

A meta-analysis of the hard data surrounding the Vegas shootings reveals incontrovertible evidence that the mainstream narrative is fatally flawed.
The degree of insider “leaks” that have emerged about this event, and what they ultimately reveal, are far beyond that contained in any one source thus far.
My specialty is in meta-analysis — taking large bodies of complex information, some of which is very obscure, and weaving them into a coherent, single narrative.
The Source Field Investigations has over 1000 academic references. The Synchronicity Key has 684. The Ascension Mysteries has 285. Each is about 500 pages in length.
We haven’t even counted how many references are in Financial Tyranny, but I would imagine there are several hundred.
I have surveyed as much of the independent journalism on this tragic event as possible — now numbering in the hundreds of articles and videos.

Many stunning new things have emerged as a result of doing a meta-analysis of the available research on this tragedy. This is the 9/11 of our decade.
At the same time, a variety of seemingly obvious points are missing entirely in the existing journalism.
A significant amount of context is necessary to understand what is really going on here, how big it is, and what it portends for our immediate future.
If we can look beyond the sadness and grief of these tragic losses, we may find that a peaceful resolution to the woes of the world is much closer than we think.
Before we plunge directly into this discussion, I feel it is important to set up the “Big Picture” so the transition isn’t quite so abrupt, shocking and upsetting.
Any time I write an investigation about an event this significant, I assume that my readers may not have ever heard any of this before.
So here we go.

Understanding and identifying the truth is, in many ways, akin to a psychedelic experience.
You are technically living in the same body, looking at the same four walls around you, but everything you thought you knew has radically changed.
Some of this awakening comes in the form of a “bad trip,” complete with the anxiety, paranoia, panic attacks, sweats, anger, sadness and depression.
Your basic sense of everyday reality is betrayed so badly that you will fight these new ideas with everything you have in you.
Eventually, you realize you have been “living on the back of the dragon” your entire life, as the Asians say, and you simply never saw its true form before.
Everyone has to go through this phase as they learn the truth. It is a necessary “rite of passage” as you heal from an entire lifetime of being lied to.
Playing “attack the messenger” is a much, much easier and more psychologically comfortable option than accepting the vomitous truth you are being shown.
For that same reason I try not to be upset by the awesome hatred that about two to five percent of the audience flings at me whenever I write about this stuff.
As I have said for many years now, “if you throw up, you’ll feel better.” The longer we go without doing this, the worse the violence will become.

As this incident continues to be investigated, you will undoubtedly hear the term “False Flag” used to refer to it.
This dates back to the era of the Knights Templar and their pirate ships siphoning vast amounts of gold out of the Caribbean.
Various European empires were plundering the gold for their own use, and shipping it home by the ton.
The Templars had superior marine technology, having been the military-industrial complex of their era — and their flag was the Skull and Bones symbol.
They were very angry after having been overthrown by the Vatican and the French in a devastating attack on Friday the 13th — in October 1307.

Any ship that was sailing back home to Europe out of the Caribbean was likely loaded with gold and treasure — often in the tons.
The pirates were very clever. They kept stashes of flags and uniforms to correspond with each of the empires that were pulling out the gold.
As soon as they saw a ship approaching through the periscope, and could make out which one it was, they would hoist that empire’s flag — and put on their outfits.
The sailors would believe they were seeing a friendly coming in, and get excited. Only at the last minute did they realize they had been tricked.
The legends of savage slaughter grew so quickly that most of them simply handed over the majority of their treasure in exchange for their lives.
This is where the term “False Flag Operation” originally comes from.
It is defined in this case as a military operation by a government, which disguises itself as another nation, group or entity.
These military operations are often waged against the people of their own country, as a means of seizing greater and greater power.
The Templars also stored their stolen gold, at times, in areas along the coastline. This is where the term “bank” apparently came from.

I have the honor and burden of sharing information from insiders who worked directly with Presidential administrations in the US, such as in the Reagan era.
These are people who were once “on the inside” and then decided to leak information to someone who they felt they could trust — as their conscience grew.
Some insiders have access to dozens of other key people who I have never directly met or spoken to, but who are all passing around information.
I began writing investigative journalism online in 1996, right at the dawn of the internet. This ended up creating a legacy that earned me the trust of interesting individuals.
Since newcomers will invariably shout “What Insiders,” particularly as I cover an event this significant, it is worthwhile to review some of that information.
This is not about ego or bragging. I consider this to be the establishment of a legal case, with our life and safety on the line.
I want to also remind you that we have extensively discussed a vast, international alliance that is opposing this negative group, or “Cabal” as we often call it.
The Alliance includes an ever-increasing majority of the US military and intelligence community, as well as many foreign governments.
Many of the seemingly mysterious headlines in today’s world can be explained as the result of a shadow war between the Cabal and the Alliance.

My first prolonged insider access came in 2004-2005, with a man we are calling Daniel, who worked for Brookhaven National Labs in Montauk Point, Long Island, NY, from 1981 to 1983.
He was well aware of a monstrous force behind government, military and media, as he had directly worked for it and gained a variety of insider secrets.
At one point he was given a line of questioning that suggested he was being evaluated as a possible new member of a neo-Nazi hate group, which he declined to join.
Another major leap forward occurred in 2006 with “Bruce,” who worked directly with both the Reagan and Clinton administrations and knew a great deal more.
This man had worked extensively at the infamous “Area 51,” though he would usually only provide indirect clues of its exact name or location.
I met Bruce when I spoke at a Richard C. Hoagland conference in Joshua Tree, California — where he sought me out and offered information.
The history of these contacts, and what I learned from them, is in The Ascension Mysteries, which just came out in paperback here in the US.
We are still seeking a French language publisher, incidentally. Leave a comment if you have any ideas. The book is already in multiple languages.

Beginning in 2007, I then met a variety of new insiders through Project Camelot, which began posting full-length interviews at the dawn of YouTube.
This was back when it was nearly impossible to get an account that would allow you to upload videos longer than 11 minutes.
Kerry Cassidy had gotten the coveted Producer’s Account that allowed for videos of any length to appear, thanks to her background as a film producer.
Some of the Camelot videos were getting hundreds of thousands, if not millions of views at the time. There was almost no competition in those days.
My debut interview with Pete Peterson appeared in a Project Camelot video that was uploaded on September 4th, 2009, as one example.
Pete is one of the insiders who has a Cosmic Top Secret clearance, which is allegedly 35 levels of need-to-know above the President of the United States.
Among other things, he was licensed as a nuclear demolition technician and had invented a variety of classified technologies for “Uncle.”
Pete was one of several key insiders who revealed the awesome amount of money that has been siphoned into top-secret “black projects.”
Pete has also been our longest-lasting and most consistent insider source for leaks coming directly from the Alliance.
He recently came forward with astonishing new intel on Cosmic Disclosure and then had everything he owned get seized from his home just weeks later.

As we discussed in the previous article, China is building literally hundreds of “ghost cities”, many of which can house millions of people.
These cities are truly vast in scope, and for the most part they are just sitting there, almost completely uninhabited.
China is building these cities in an apparent attempt to be ready to handle anticipated overpopulation in their future, requiring mass migrations.
China has been able to pay for these cities with far less money than what the Western elites have already stolen from us since at least the early 1950s.
Insiders revealed a variety of means through which countless trillions of dollars have been siphoned out of our economy.
This includes artificially-inflated budgets for the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Apollo missions, the nuclear arms race, the War on Terror and the F-35 fighter jet.
Again, there is literally enough money there to build entire civilizations that could comfortably house millions of people — as China is now doing.
The question we must ask ourselves is “Where did all the money go?” It’s not just buried somewhere under a coastline.

Peterson has revealed that “we” already have used this money to build some 235 different underground cities — which can house up to 65,000 people each.
A vast, underground bullet-train system of “sub-shuttles” provides transportation between these different locations at high rates of speed.
This was intended to provide them with a Paradise-type of existence even if the surface of the earth was completely destroyed… in a nuclear war they had instigated.
Other insiders reveal the “hidden infrastructure” built by the military-industrial complex may be far greater than just these 235 different locations.

This may not seem relevant right now, but it is important to point out that Las Vegas is, in many ways, the capital city of the black-ops world.
The infamous Nellis Air Force Base is merely 13 miles away from the Las Vegas strip, as this article on Military.com reveals.
Furthermore, Military.com says Nellis is “one of the largest and busiest air bases in the country,” with six different wings instead of the usual one.
There are countless insider reports about an extensive underground build-out at Nellis, with many different classified programs going on.
And then we have Area 51.
Though you cannot get “Area 51” to appear on a map search, other related businesses are just over an hour’s driving distance away from Vegas.

Multiple whistleblowers have revealed that the casinos themselves are intimately involved with the military-industrial complex, if not directly owned by them in many cases.
A virtual monopoly exists on construction and real estate in Vegas, which is typically blamed on “the mafia” — and that may be one aspect of it.
Nonetheless, some casinos apparently have elevators that will take you down to sub-shuttles for quick trips to Nellis, Area 51 and elsewhere.
Certain casino employees, such as heads of security, may work their jobs as cover assignments while also moonlighting as black-ops employees.
Dan Burisch was one Camelot whistleblower who admitted to working as a Las Vegas security guard and claimed to have this alternative lifestyle as well.

As we discussed in the previous article, Lockheed Martin is, in many ways, the biggest and most secretive black-ops military defense contractor of all.
This was confirmed again on September 16th, as a high-ranking CIA whistleblower named Kevin Shipp came forward with stunning new intel.
Zero Hedge had a detailed article that only summarized a few of the countless things Kevin Shipp went through in just over a one-hour presentation.
It’s very fast and nearly overwhelming, but if you take your time it is worth it. Many of the things we have been saying for years were cross-validated here.
He indicates that there is a “Shadow Government” which he declares as being a separate entity that controls what he calls the Deep State.
One of the things he goes into in the video, which is not mentioned in this writeup, is the awesome size and power of Lockheed:

9/16: High-Ranking CIA Insider Blows the Whistle on the Shadow Government and Deep State

A CIA whistleblower, Kevin Shipp, has emerged from the wolves’ den to expose the deep state and the shadow government, which he calls two entirely separate entities.
“The shadow government controls the deep state and manipulates our elected government behind the scenes,” Shipp warned in a recent talk at a Geoengineeringwatch.org conference….
“The top of the shadow government is the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency,” Shipp said.
Shipp expressed that the CIA was created through the Council on Foreign Relations with no Congressional approval, and historically the CFR is also tied into the mainstream media (MSM.)

He elaborated that the CIA was the “central node” of the shadow government and controlled all of other 16 intelligence agencies despite the existence of the DNI (Director of National Intelligence.)
The agency also controls defense and intelligence contractors, can manipulate the president and political decisions, has the power to start wars, torture, initiate coups, and commit false flag attacks, he said….

According to Shipp, the deep state is comprised of the military industrial complex, intelligence contractors, defense contractors, MIC lobbyists, Wall St (offshore accounts), Federal Reserve, IMF/World Bank, Treasury, Foreign lobbyists, and Central Banks.
In the shocking, explosive presentation, Shipp went on to express that there are “over 10,000 secret sites in the U.S.” that formed after 9/11.
There are 1,291 secret government agencies, 1,931 large private corporations and over 4,800,000 Americans that he knows of who have a secrecy clearance.
[There are also] 854,000 who have Top Secret clearance, explaining they signed their lives away bound by an agreement.

The CIA was publicly exposed for using MK-ULTRA mind-control practices in Congressional hearings in the 1970s.
Now we are seeing a top insider tell us that the CIA is the “central node” controlling defense and intelligence contractors. This was not new information for me.
At the highest levels, the CIA is a control system for what we have been calling the Cabal.
It should be obvious, therefore, to conclude that MK-ULTRA and other similar practices are routinely being used on their employees, as I have also heard.
Almost any Lockheed employee is going to be exposed to a wealth of classified information and intelligence.
These jobs invariably require the employee to submit to various levels of mind control, including hypnotic, chemical and technological systems.
In some cases, employees have “compartments” of their memory that are activated when they work, and are usually inaccessible at other times.
In other cases, an employee will work normally but then end up having their mind wiped, or altered, once a job has been completed.
The recent Hollywood film American Ultra was an astonshingly brazen attempt to make MK-ULTRA seem cool, as if it turns you into a superhero-type figure.

Scopolamine is one example of a publicly-known drug that can seriously tamper with free will and memory:
Psychology Today on Scopolamine-Induced Memory Loss

[Scopolamine] has also been implicated in the large number of cruise ship rapes.
Criminals like it precisely because it causes short-term memory loss: victims can’t identify them or testify against them.
Blocking memory is like wiping away fingerprints.
But don’t be fooled–it’s not that victim has no knowledge of being victimized, it’s that the victim has no idea how such a thing could have happened.
Scopolamine is also known as “Devil’s Breath.” That pretty much says it all.

Classified drugs and technology now exist that work far more effectively than scopolamine.
This will never be made public, as it would then allow “the enemy” to gain the same technology and weaponize it against its users.
In many cases, upon completion of an assignment, people are “blank slated” and have little, if any memory of what they had done before.
“Screen memories” may be implanted to give a false view of what actually happened.
Hypnotic commands can also be inserted and accessed later. People can conduct acts under post-hypnotic suggestion and not even remember doing it.
Trauma is often used in conjunction with hypnosis, such as in the case of creating a programmable assassin.
The traumatized aspect of that person’s psyche can become psychopathic enough to take the lives of others with no feeling of remorse.
Peterson is one of the insiders who revealed this technique was used extensively to create desired “lone gunmen” for high-level assassinations.

With all that being said, Stephen Paddock’s last known job was working for Lockheed Martin between 1985 and 1988:
10/2: Las Vegas Shooter Was Lockheed Martin Employee in 1980s

[Paddock] had a pilots license, and had previously worked for global defense and aeronautics company Lockheed Martin in the 1980s.
“Stephen Paddock worked for a predecessor company of Lockheed Martin from 1985 until 1988,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re cooperating with authorities to answer questions they may have about Mr. Paddock and his time with the company.”

Many news outlets reported that Paddock engaged in abnormal behaviors on a routine basis.
10/6: Paddock Would Lie in Bed, Screaming “Oh My God” Every Night

Investigators believe the shooter may have been in “physical or mental anguish,” a former FBI official who was briefed on the investigation told NBC News.
Another said the shooter displayed “mental health symptoms”.
“[His girlfriend] said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, ‘Oh, my God,'” one of the officials recalled.

This screaming is completely consistent with someone who had been through trauma-based mind control.
Jesse Eisenberg’s character in American Ultra displays all sorts of bizarre behaviors, including vomitous trauma if he ever tries to leave town.
Targeted individuals are rarely ever able to sleep properly. The trauma that occurred to them under narco-hypnosis always remains very close to their conscious awareness.
Let’s not forget that the CIA’s own MK-ULTRA mind control program was publicly disclosed in Congressional hearings in the 1970s.
Officially it was discontinued at that point, but insiders have consistently revealed it has continued unabated ever since.
It is considered the ideal means of assassinating high-profile targets, since the assassins themselves will not even be aware of who ordered it done, or why.

Many insiders have reported that they work classified jobs that are “off the books” for years.
The Cabal makes its money from a variety of unsavory activities, including human trafficking, drug smuggling and illegal arms dealing.
Jobs like these, including “wet work” or assassinations and the smuggling of drugs, arms or humans, can pay ridiculously well, usually in cash.
A few jobs a year — if that — could easily make you into a multi-millionaire. If you have psychopathic characteristics, what would you then do with it?
Las Vegas has legal prostitution, lots of sights and sounds, and plenty of ways to gamble away money you don’t really need.
It would be entirely consistent with insider testimonies I have heard for Paddock to explain away his wealth as him simply being a “professional gambler.”

10/4: Las Vegas Shooter Was Unusually Wealthy

Paddock had two planes, owned multiple homes, and regularly dropped tens of thousands of dollars in Vegas casinos, according to recent reports. His shocking collections of guns and ammunition alone may have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Paddock had two planes, owned multiple homes, and regularly dropped tens of thousands of dollars in Vegas casinos, according to recent reports.
His shocking collections of guns and ammunition alone may have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars….
Paddock also appears to have been quite wealthy, which is unusual for mass shooters….
He owned two planes and was a licensed pilot, and owned homes in four states, according to the Washington Post.

His brother said that Stephen Paddock made some $2 million when the two sold their real estate business a few years ago.
And just before the massacre, he wired $100,000 to his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines, a transaction investigators are still attempting to explain.
NBC News reported that Paddock often gambled at least $10,000 a day in Las Vegas casinos, and sometimes upwards of $30,000 per day.
He reportedly gambled a total of at least $160,000 at Vegas casinos in the weeks before the mass shooting. It’s unclear how much he won or lost over this time span….
“He’s a multimillionaire,” [Paddock’s brother] Eric said, according to New York.
“He helped me become affluent, he made me wealthy.”

Paddock’s now well-documented extreme wealth could have been the result of ongoing pay he was receiving for doing various classified jobs.
If he was a smuggler of sensitive items, he would also need to be a trained assassin… so he could “take care” of anyone if a deal fell through.
Isn’t it interesting, then, that the media revealed Paddock had taken twenty different cruises, on the books — including to destinations in the Middle East?

10/6: Las Vegas Shooter Took 20 Cruises, Some to the Middle East

Investigators… found that [Paddock] took 20 cruises, some of which traveled to the Middle East or Europe.
The cruises included stops in Spain, Italy, Greece, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates, a law enforcement official told CNN.
Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, joined him for nine of the cruises.
Other details about the trips, like when they took place and what cruise lines were involved, have not been revealed.
Even though the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack and that Paddock had converted to Islam, investigators have found no evidence to support those assertions.

We now know the shooter worked for the biggest, most notorious military defense contractor in modern history — Lockheed Martin.
As insiders will tell you, once you take on a job like this, you never really get out. Hence the saying, “the only way out is a bullet.”
Paddock supposedly retired in 1988, and only then made money from real estate and thirty years of “professional gambling.”
Yet, he had enough cash to blow thirty thousand dollars a day without even batting an eye.
His behavior shows clear examples of mind-control symptoms. Normal people do not scream “Oh My God” night after night in bed.
His travel easily fits the profile of someone who was covertly working as a smuggler for what we are calling the Cabal.
He would also have been through extensive security training and surveillance, and therefore wouldn’t have dared tell his family anything.
His girlfriend might not have known a thing about his “double life” either. If you are caught saying one word, you will get a “sit-down” — if not far worse.

All of this makes it much easier to believe that Paddock could have worked with several co-conspirators, as the independent research suggests.
In fact, he may have even been promised a safe exit, such as through a special elevator — and possibly believed someone else would take the fall.
Given how crazy these insider stories can get, it is even possible that his alleged suicide could have been a murder.
Someone else may have been there with him, as his room service bill showed, and then killed him and arranged it to look like a suicide once he did his part.
His supposed “suicide note” turned out to be a piece of paper where he was calculating the trajectories of his weapons for maximum effectiveness.
This definitely suggests that he had been through advanced military-type training on the use of firearms.
This is standard fare for people who receive covert training from defense contractors and / or intelligence agencies.
Therefore, if someone in the Shadow Government  wanted to use a programmed individual as the face of a complex operation, Stephen Paddock fits the bill.



Iranian Defence Minister has wobbly

Iran’s defense chief has slammed US President Donald Trump’s threat to blacklist the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), saying any such move against the elite counterterrorism force would only promote terror and instability in the region and the entire world.

Brigadier General Amir Hatami praised the IRGC as “the most powerful” force “on the frontline” of the fight against terrorism, IRNA reported on Thursday.

Hatami said the IRGC belongs to all the regional nations, adding, “Any plot and action undermining this anti-terrorism foundation will help promote terrorism and insecurity in the region and across the world.”

Hatami underlined Iran’s determination to stand against recent US threats, adding, “The IRGC, the Army and all the country’s forces stand united against the hostile, belligerent policies and actions of the US government, and will not allow them to jeopardize regional security through proxy war and terrorism.”

In his planned speech on October 15, Trump is expected to designate the IRGC as a “terrorist” organization. Moreover, he is reportedly planning to announce that he will not certify the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015.

Iranian officials have warned that Tehran will take reciprocal measures against a potential “strategic mistake” by Trump to blacklist the IRGC.

Earlier this week, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned the US against any measure targeting the IRGC.

“If American officials make such a strategic mistake, the Islamic Republic of Iran will take a reciprocal measure,” Zarif said, adding, “Some measures have been thought out in this regard and will be taken at the appropriate time.”

The IRGC’s chief commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said on Sunday that Iran would treat US troops like Daesh terrorists if the IRGC was designated as a terrorist organization by the US.

Trump’s efforts to blacklist the IRGC come as the advisors of the Iranian elite force are currently assisting the Iraqi and Syrian forces in their anti-terrorism campaign against Daesh Takfiri militants and other terrorist groups in both countries.

While the IRGC’s advisory military missions in Iraq and Syria, both hit by Daesh terrorism, have significantly boosted Iran’s geopolitical influence in the region, the White House seeks to label Tehran’s growing regional role as violation of the “spirit” of the JCPOA.

The nuclear agreement, however, is solely about Iran’s nuclear activities and it does not incorporate non-nuclear issues.

Doctor loses his cool with patient irritated with wait and then the fee


Angry doctor tells sick patient to ‘get the f*** out of my office’ when she complains about surgery wait

Jessica Stipe claimed the medic went “mad” when she asked for an $80 (£60) copay – a fee paid by patients before receiving treatment – to be returned at a clinic – as police launch an investigation.

A doctor shouted at a patient to “get the f*** out of my office” when she complained about the wait at his surgery.

Jessica Stipe claimed the medic went “mad” when she asked for an $80 (£60) copay – a fee paid by US patients before receiving treatment – to be returned at a clinic in Gainesville, Florida.

Police have reportedly launched a criminal investigation after the confrontation was filmed in a waiting room at the Gainesville After Hours Clinic.

Dramatic footage captured by Jessica’s daughter showed doctor Peter Gallogly angrily confront Jessica when she complains about the length of her wait.

The exasperated medic tells her: “Are you kidding me? Do you know how many people.. I’ve got seven rooms back there.”

Jessica said she made her appointment at 6.30 but the s trident doctor interrupts her.

“It’s 7.45 and we have already been working on you, we have done a urine test on you, I’ve seen you.”

He then tells her “do you want to be seen or not”.

Doctor Peter Gallogly orders the patient to leave the clinic.

When Jessica says she wants to go home and get in bed, the doctor replies: “Then fine, get the hell out, get your money and get the hell out.”

Jessica responds by branding the doctor “rude” and “disrespectful” to which he angrily retaliates “get the f*** out of my office now”.

Trump is falling apart, and nobody knows what to do about it

A cry for help is coming from the White House. Even Trump’s inner circle say he’s unstable; the danger is growing

From the moment Donald Trump went down that golden escalator back in June of 2015 to announce his candidacy, people have been predicting that his improbable foray into politics was on the verge of imploding. There were a dozen disqualifying moments during the campaign, and since he’s been president, we’ve careened from one disaster to another, each time wondering if he’s going to survive. The smart money says he does, because he always has.

Having said that, there’s a shift taking place in Washington. It may just be the realization setting in that the man we saw on the campaign trail was the real, authentic Donald Trump and he’s not going to change. There are too many reports coming from inside the administration on Capitol Hill expressing concern at his behavior to write this off as just another Trump storm that will soon pass. There are alarms going off all over Washington, and it feels different this time.

First there are the reports of Trump having to be handled like a small child because of his moodiness and irrational demands. This part does not surprise me. He showed his puerile temperament on the campaign trail from the beginning. The infantile nicknames, his rage tweets, his narcissism all pointed to someone who was emotionally immature and intellectually in over his head. Here’s one example from early in the primary season:

Trump’s childish combativeness hasn’t changed since he’s been president and led to his greatest self-inflicted wound, the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the naming of special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the Russia investigation.

There is also a growing acknowledgement that Trump doesn’t understand the job and isn’t able to learn it. This too was obvious before the election. He was up-front about how he does business, admitting that he never bothered with market research or consultants of any kind. According to The Washington Post, back in July of 2016 Trump said he reaches the right decisions “with very little knowledge other than the knowledge I [already] had, plus the words ‘common sense,’ because I have a lot of common sense and I have a lot of business ability.” He told them that he didn’t trust experts because “they can’t see the forest for the trees” and “when he makes decisions, people see that he instinctively knows the right thing to do.”

No one should have expected that he would be willing or able to learn anything new as president, and he isn’t. He believes he is omniscient.

Indeed, we’ve seen a lot of reports that the president’s behavior is getting worse. Gabriel Sherman of Vanity Fair published an article on Wednesday in which numerous sources told him that the White House is in crisis and that Sen. Bob Corker’s comments have “brought into the open what several people close to the president” have told Sherman in private: “that Trump is ‘unstable,’ ‘losing a step,’ and ‘unraveling.'” He is described as “increasingly unfocused and consumed by dark moods,” particularly since his chosen candidate in the Alabama Senate race, Luther Strange, lost the primary runoff and he began to suspect that “his cult of personality was broken.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s ghost is emerging with more disturbing Gulag stories

170306134513-06-russian-revolution-100-years-anniversary-putin-super-169.jpgProfessor Ulam takes sharp issue with the charges against Mr. Solzhenitsyn. He acknowledges that the assassination of Stolypin ”lends itself” to an anti-Semitic interpretation, but he continues: ”On balance, over all, taking into account all his work and his entire biography, I don’t think you can call Alexander Solzhenitsyn an anti-Semite. He has a very sharp pen, I admit. He’s extremely passionate. He has some sharp things to say about Jews. But he has sharp things to say about Russians who are not Jews. The most you might say about Solzhenitsyn is that he resents the intrusion of foreign influences into Russian life. But an anti-Semite? No.

Solzhenitsyn Breaks The Last TabooNobel Laureate Under Fire For His New Book
On The Jews In Soviet-Era Repression
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who first exposed the horrors of the Stalinist gulag, is now attempting to tackle one of the most sensitive topics of his writing career – the role of the Jews in the Bolshevik revolution and Soviet purges. In his latest book Solzhenitsyn, 84, deals with one of the last taboos of the communist revolution: that Jews were as much perpetrators of the repression as its victims. Two Hundred Years Together – a reference to the 1772 partial annexation of Poland and Russia which greatly increased the Russian Jewish population – contains three chapters discussing the Jewish role in the revolutionary genocide and secret police purges of Soviet Russia. But Jewish leaders and some historians have reacted furiously to the book, and questioned Solzhenitsyn’s motives in writing it, accusing him of factual inaccuracies and of fanning the flames of anti-semitism in Russia. Solzhenitsyn argues that some Jewish satire of the revolutionary period “consciously or unconsciously descends on the Russians” as being behind the genocide. But he states that all the nation’s ethnic groups must share the blame, and that people shy away from speaking the truth about the Jewish experience. In one remark which infuriated Russian Jews, he wrote: “If I would care to generalise, and to say that the life of the Jews in the camps was especially hard, I could, and would not face reproach for an unjust national generalisation. But in the camps where I was kept, it was different. The Jews whose experience I saw – their life was softer than that of others.” Yet he added: “But it is impossible to find the answer to the eternal question: who is to be blamed, who led us to our death? To explain the actions of the Kiev cheka [secret police] only by the fact that two thirds were Jews, is certainly incorrect.” Solzhenitsyn, awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1970, spent much of his life in Soviet prison camps, enduring persecution when he wrote about his experiences. He is currently in frail health, but in an interview given last month he said that Russia must come to terms with the Stalinist and revolutionary genocides – and that its Jewish population should be as offended at their own role in the purges as they are at the Soviet power that also persecuted them. “My book was directed to empathise with the thoughts, feelings and the psychology of the Jews – their spiritual component,” he said. “I have never made general conclusions about a people. I will always differentiate between layers of Jews. One layer rushed headfirst to the revolution. Another, to the contrary, was trying to stand back. The Jewish subject for a long time was considered prohibited. Zhabotinsky [a Jewish writer] once said that the best service our Russian friends give to us is never to speak aloud about us.” But Solzhenitsyn’s book has caused controversy in Russia, where one Jewish leader said it was “not of any merit”. “This is a mistake, but even geniuses make mistakes,” said Yevgeny Satanovsky, president of the Russian Jewish Congress. “Richard Wagner did not like the Jews, but was a great composer. Dostoyevsky was a great Russian writer, but had a very sceptical attitude towards the Jews. “This is not a book about how the Jews and Russians lived together for 200 years, but one about how they lived apart after finding themselves on the same territory. This book is a weak one professionally. Factually, it is so bad as to be beyond criticism. As literature, it is not of any merit.” But DM Thomas, one of Solzhenitsyn’s biographers, said that he did not think the book was fuelled by anti-semitism. “I would not doubt his sincerity. He says that he firmly supports the state of Israel. In his fiction and factual writing there are Jewish characters that he writes about who are bright, decent, anti-Stalinist people.” Professor Robert Service of Oxford University, an expert on 20th century Russian history, said that from what he had read about the book, Solzhenitsyn was “absolutely right”. Researching a book on Lenin, Prof Service came across details of how Trotsky, who was of Jewish origin, asked the politburo in 1919 to ensure that Jews were enrolled in the Red army. Trotsky said that Jews were disproportionately represented in the Soviet civil bureaucracy, including the cheka. “Trotsky’s idea was that the spread of anti-semitism was [partly down to] objections about their entrance into the civil service. There is something in this; that they were not just passive spectators of the revolution. They were part-victims and part-perpetrators. “It is not a question that anyone can write about without a huge amount of bravery, and [it] needs doing in Russia because the Jews are quite often written about by fanatics. Mr Solzhenitsyn’s book seems much more measured than that.” Yet others failed to see the need for Solzhenitsyn’s pursuit of this particular subject at present. Vassili Berezhkov, a retired KGB colonel and historian of the secret services and the NKVD (the precursor of the KGB), said: “The question of ethnicity did not have any importance either in the revolution or the story of the NKVD. This was a social revolution and those who served in the NKVD and cheka were serving ideas of social change. “If Solzhenitsyn writes that there were many Jews in the NKVD, it will increase the passions of anti-semitism, which has deep roots in Russian history. I think it is better not to discuss such a question now.” Guardian Unlimited © Guardian Newspapers Limited 2003 unnamed (2)The contents of the article on this page are of sole responsibility of their authors

‘We don’t need you either’ Erdogan says to Washington

Good man ! Thats it you tell em………its the only way we can rejuvenate

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Washington of “sacrificing” relations with Ankara, and has blamed the ongoing diplomatic dispute on a US ambassador “who doesn’t know his place.”

Is Turkey steering towards the Kremlin? It seems like a big row has happened behind the scenes and nobody particularly is bothered to come clean and explain.
Let me be very clear, the person who caused this is the ambassador here.” Erdogan told provincial governors in Ankara on Thursday.” It is unacceptable for the United States to sacrifice a strategic partner to an ambassador who doesn’t know his place,” , as quoted by Reuters.

Erdogan was referencing outgoing US Ambassador John Bass, whom the Turkish president previously accused of acting alone in the decision to suspend the issuance of visas to Turkish citizens, rather than on behalf of the United States government.
Erdogan reiterated that belief on Thursday.
“What a shame if the great United States of America is being governed by an ambassador in Ankara. Because this is the position they are holding. They should have said, ‘You cannot treat my strategic ally this way, you cannot act this way.’ But they couldn’t say this,” he said, as quoted by Anadolu Agency.
The US State Department has denied that claim, saying Bass had the “full backing” of Washington, and that his actions were coordinated with the department, the White House, and the National Security Council.
Erdogan went on to deliver a blunt message to Washington, saying “we do not need you.”
We are not a tribal state. We are the state of the Republic of Turkey and you will accept it. If you don’t, then sorry but we do not need you,” he said, as quoted by Hurriyet.

Erdogan went on to accuse the US of hiding a suspect who is allegedly linked to cleric Fethullah Gulen – who Ankara blames for last year’s failed military coup – inside its Istanbul consulate.
“The consulate employee sought by Turkish police is hiding in the US consulate,” Erdogan said, adding that worker is “clearly tied” to Gulen.
It comes after the US State Department confirmed on Tuesday that Turkish authorities had summoned a third embassy staff member over the weekend, with spokeswoman Heather Nauert calling the move “deeply disturbing.”
The first US consulate employee arrest took place last week, when Turkish citizen Metin Topuz was detained. The pro-government newspaper Daily Sabah reported that he was accused of “facilitating the escape” of “known Gulenists” from Turkey.
Topuz’s arrest prompted the US embassy in Turkey to announce it was suspending “all non-immigrant visa services at all US diplomatic facilities,” stating that “recent events” had “forced the United States government to reassess the commitment of the government of Turkey to the security of US mission facilities and personnel…”

Ankara then issued an arrest warrant for a second consulate worker.
Addressing Ankara’s reciprocal move on Thursday, Erdogan said Turkey would “stand behind the visa decision until the end.”
Last year’s failed military coup prompted a major crackdown by Erdogan which has led to the arrests of tens of thousands of people and more than 150,000 soldiers, police officers and officials dismissed or suspended from their posts.

The traditional November remembrance ceremony, in which Britain honors its war dead, will mark a step up in duties for Prince Charles, heir to the throne, this year as Queen Elizabeth II takes a back seat to be beside her elderly husband.

The Queen has chosen not to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph memorial in London this year, for the first time in her 65-year reign, according to The Times newspaper.

She has missed the ceremony before, six times, but only due to travel commitments and pregnancies.
