Nobel Peace Prize laureate, US President Barack Obama has been steadfastly pursuing a policy of armed interventions and conflicts across the globe longer and more extensively than any other president in recent US history. Now he’s sounding an advance against Russia, paying no heed to the fact that it may result in world war followed promptly by mutual nuclear annihilation.
One could hardly make a compelling argument how else one can explain the statement made by Spokesperson for the US State Department, Rear Admiral John F. Kirby, other than a direct declaration of war. The statement reads as follows:
The consequences are that the civil war will continue in Syria, that extremists and extremists groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which will include, no question, attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities, and Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and they will continue to lose resources – even, perhaps, more aircraft…
The very same modus operandi was employed a quarter of a century ago to take down the Soviet Union. In the late 1980’s America decided it was in a position to catch the “evil empire” in an Afghan trap through the support it would provide armed terrroists that have now transformed themselves into “moderate terrorists,” including Al-Qaeda. In the 1980’s, Washington took advantage of Saudi wealth and Pakistan’s secret service. That’s how the so-called Afghan resistance was born, enjoying Pakistani logistical support and streams of “fresh recruits” from all across the Middle East.
The former US Secretary of State and now a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, openly declared back in 2012 that it was a great idea from her point of view:
When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, we had this brilliant idea that we are going to come to Pakistan and create a force of Mujahideen, equip them with stinger missiles and everything else to go after the Soviets inside the Afghanistan. And we were successful, the Soviets left Afghanistan, and then we said “Great! Goodbye “, leaving these trained people who where fanatical in Afghanistan and Pakistan, leaving them well armed, creating a mess…
What Hillary forgot to mention, however, is the fact that the Mujaheddin movement in Afghanistan was a “breeding ground” for Al-Qaeda assets. Al-Qaeda was and still is directly controlled by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to promote a process of Middle Eastern destabilization, providing US military contractors with an excuse to invade state, after state, after state.…
Genetic engineering has been touted as a major solution to the global hunger problems that are expected to worsen as the world’s population grows. But a new analysis of this industry’s nearly 20-year record in the United States shows that, despite proponents’ claims, genetic engineering has actually done very little to increase the yields of food and feed crops. Given such a track record, it appears unlikely that this technology will play a leading role in helping the world feed itself in the foreseeable future ….
How convenient for the disaster capitalists like soros, who have made a business model of destruction. The record of police violence against black people is severely undermining any semblance of political stability. How hard would it be to modify “best practices” in hiring cops nation wide, when there are probably just a few organizations which deal with the issue? It would be cheap by a billionaire’s standards. Or is that a conspiracy theory? Don’t make me laugh.
Because of intensifying civil strife over the recent killings of unarmed black men and boys, many Americans are wondering, “What’s wrong with our police?” Remarkably, one of the most compelling but unexplored explanations may rest with a FBI warning of October 2006, which reported that “White supremacist infiltration of law enforcement” represented a significant national threat.
Several key events preceded the report. A federal court found that members of a Los Angeles sheriffs department formed a Neo Nazi gang and habitually terrorized the black community. Later, the Chicago police department fired Jon Burge, a detective with reputed ties to the Ku Klux Klan, after discovering he tortured over 100 black male suspects. Thereafter, the Mayor of Cleveland discovered that many of the city police locker rooms were infested with “White Power” graffiti. Years later, a Texas sheriff department discovered that two of its deputies were recruiters for the Klan.
In near prophetic fashion, after the FBI’s warning, white supremacy extremism in the U.S. increased, exponentially. From 2008 to 2014, the number of white supremacist groups, reportedly, grew from 149 to nearly a thousand, with no apparent abatement in their infiltration of law enforcement…
This wouldn’t be happening if it didn’t support a very profitable business model. Blackmail is the secret web of control which is enveloping the world. See extensive documentation on the franklin scandal and mk-ultra trauma based mind control on this site. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
Eminence-based medicine is not the exception. It’s the rule.
Lately I’ve been writing about eminence-based medicine (here, here, and here). In response to these posts, Saurabh Jha, MBBS, a well-known radiologist and health-policy critic, asked me on Twitter: “How do you find these utter gems?!”
I was surprised by Jha’s question, because the evidence for this phenomenon — eminence-based medicine trumping evidence-based medicine — seems overwhelming.
But then I realized Jha’s question was legitimate, because there’s actually remarkably little hard proof, though I suspect it really is a big dirty secret that every doctor knows in his or her heart.
For this reason, I think Bernhard Meier, the interventional cardiologist I’ve been writing about, deserves praise for, at the very least, being so honest and forthright. In his article in European Heart Journal and in his response to my questions he was perfectly willing to explain and defend his position. One of the refreshing aspects of Meier’s positions is that he readily admits that his actions fly in the face of evidence-based medicine. In his EHJ article, he specifically stated that randomized controlled trials are an artifact of the past. His beliefs and practices, he explained, were developed from his long experience at the pinnacle of interventional cardiology.
By contrast, most eminence-based medicine is dressed up in the guise of evidence-based medicine. The distinguished thought leader will provide a ceaseless barrage of statistics, of which he (or she, but usually he) will have an unparalleled mastery. At each step of the argument, the logic will appear flawless, even brilliant. But, in general, the entire purpose of the talk will be to “prove” the thought leader’s opinion, despite the complete lack of genuine reliable evidence, or to disprove the actual evidence that exists, because it fails to support that opinion.
But the responsibility for eminence-based medicine goes well beyond the elite coterie of experts. The real problem is the culture of medicine, which rewards the hubris of eminence and actively punishes or offers subtle disincentives to anyone who question this process.
In this respect, medicine mirrors the rest of life. Medical training is disturbingly similar to military training, where immediate and unreflecting obedience is the goal. Both basic training and residency are designed to break down the mindset and instincts of a young person in order to mold them to the needs of the profession. In both, the submission to authority is a central tenet. …
The empire strikes back
Washington’s regime change machinery has for the time being succeeded in removing an important link in the alliance of large emerging nations by railroading through a Senate impeachment of the duly elected President, Dilma Rousseff. On August 31 her Vice President Michel Temer was sworn in as President. In his first speech as president, the cynical Temer called for a government of “national salvation,” asking for the trust of the Brazilian people. He indicated plans to reform, and has also signaled his intention to overhaul the pension system and labor laws, and cut public spending, all themes beloved of Wall Street banks, of the International Monetary Fund and their Washington Consensus. Now after less than three weeks at the job, Temer has unveiled plans for wholesale privatization of Brazil’s crown jewels, starting with oil. The planned Wall Street rape of Brazil is about to begin….
Does anyone still believe these crooks don’t intend to privatize THIS country? Do you really think the “national debt” has no meaning? We’re running out of time to pass the american monetary act (monetary.org)
