Who Survives the Iran Counter-Offensive? – “Iran has had enough. I think it’s fair to say that after 60+ years of U.S. aggression towards Iran that the decision to shoot down a U.S. drone represents an inflection point in world politics. What’s important is to know that the rules of the game have changed. Iran has taken all the punches to the nose it will take from Trump without retaliating. When you corner someone and give them no way out you invite the worst kind of counter-attack.” – Tom Luango
Iran goes for “maximum counter-pressure” – “Iranian diplomacy, discreetly, has already informed the EU – and the Swiss – about their ability to crash the entire world economy. But still that was not enough to remove US sanctions.” – Pepe Escobar
Trump Concerned About Loss of Lives in Iran? – “Trump’s record in office shows utter disdain for human lives, rights and welfare. His approved rape and destruction of Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria alone were responsible for tens of thousands of deaths, countless more injuries. Since taking office, he escalated war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and Somalia, along with waging war by other means on Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua.” – Stephen Lendman
Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran – “He campaigned as a man who would end the costly and neverending decades-old and counting US wars far away from American shores and territory. He hasn’t lived up to those campaign goals at all, far from it, and he hired doofuses like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo to show everyone that he didn’t, but in the early hours of June 21 2019 he apparently decided at the last minute that it just didn’t add up. Trump’s domestic opponents don’t appear to want peace, not those in the Democratic party, and not those in the MSM, or at least not anyone I’ve seen, other than Tulsi Gabbard. I haven’t seen a word from Nadler or Pelosi trying to coax Trump away from bomb bombing Iran, and diddly squat from the NYT or WashPo either.” – Raúl Ilargi Meijer – GOOD ARTICLE FROM RAUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Fact That Americans Need To Be Deceived Into War Proves Their Underlying Goodness -“Today I have a lot more hope. It’s becoming clear that the manipulations of the US war machine are becoming more and more obvious to more and more people and that everyday, regular Americans are reacting with a healthy amount of horror and revulsion.” – Caitlin Johnstone
The Back Story Behind Trump’s FAKE Pullback Order to Attack Iran – “The ‘Peacemaking’ POTUS Morphs Into a Warmongering Psychopath. President Trump has put all his cards on the table. There’s no longer any question that he’s nothing but a zealous cheerleader for the Military-Industrial Complex. And, that his primary mission is to Make Israel Great Again (MIGA).” –
Tucker Takes Aim At ‘Bureaucratic Tapeworm’ John Bolton For Fomenting War With Iran – “Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized National Security Advisor John Bolton as a “bureaucratic tapeworm” pushing from within the Trump administration for an unnecessary and costly war with Iran.” – Scott Morefield
Wall Street Wants Dems to Nominate Anyone but Sanders, Warren or Gabbard – “How horrifically bad a US President Barack Obama was, wasn’t reported by America’s press. Perhaps this is why the three leading candidates among America’s Democratic Party voters today are Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Kamala Harris. Supporters of any of those three are supporting, to become the Party’s nominee, someone who would respond to an economic crash very similarly to the way that Obama did (for the elite crooks, against the public). All three despise the “pitchforks” who want accountability, and each respects only his own mega-donors.” – Eric Zuesse
Trump’s Not Going After Hillary As Promised but He’s Letting the Government Come After You – “Has Trump betrayed his base? If not, tell me why Hillary has not been indicted. Trump has had ample opportunity to prosecute Hillary. However, not only is Trump not going after the Deep state as promised, he is silent on governmental actions that could do us great harm. Earlier this week, I raised the question as to why Trump has not moved to repeal the unconstitutional NDAA which can snatch Americans off the street without due process. When Trump was elected, I thought we’d be hunting Deep State game by this point in time. Is anyone else worried that we have been compromised?” – Dave Hodges – DAVE MAKES SOME VALID POINTS HERE!!!!!
Lightfoot on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ answers the Chicago deep dish question – “Colbert noted Chicago’s strict anti-gun laws have not stopped shooting deaths, and Lightfoot lamented about the porous Indiana and Wisconsin borders. “Well, part of the challenge for Chicago is we’re right door to Indiana where you can literally drive on the border and get military-grade weapons in any quantity without a background check. And then they bring them back into the city of Chicago.”” – Lynn Sweet – WHAT IS HER DEFINITION OF MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS!!!!!!
Will A Gold Backed Trade Settlement Note Be Announced in 2019, 2020 or Later? – “Recently the head of the Central Bank of Russia announced that, not only does Russia hold close to zero U.S. Treasuries (instrument of debt), they have a “savings account” worth more than half-a-trillion (equivalent) U.S. dollars! Oh yeah, and Russia has added gold to their balance sheet every month for the past 6 years.” – Rory Hall
ZIRP And QE Won’t Save The Economy – Buy Gold – “While the financial media and Wall Street “experts” are pleading with market participants to ignore the warning signals transmitted by the various yield curve inversions (Treasury curve, Eurodollar curve, GOFO curve) gold’s movement since mid-August reflects underlying systemic problems bubbling to the surface. The rocket launch this week is a bright warning flare shooting up in the night sky.” – Dave Kranzler
VERSES FOR THE DAY (USED BEFORE)
