    Great that you had Christian on. I’ve been following this very closely, and his “daily wrap up” has done a great job in providing background and context.

    Note that the “US Marine’s arrest Iraqi parliamentarian” is now debunked:

    https://news.antiwar.com/2020/01/02/report-us-troops-capture-top-iraqi-mp-militia-leaders/

    What is very clear is that the US military and executive leadership have completely lost their minds. Caitlin Johnstone once said that the best thing about Trump is that he openly exposes what the US is. This may be the most clear exposure of pure power play, with no recourse to international law, decorum, norms or anything. Trump tweets to target 52 Iranian locations (to correspond to the 40 years ago hostage taking during the Iranian revolution) in which he will target Iranian cultural sites (war crime). Then in a later tweet that if the Iranians attack US stuff the US’s response may be “disproportionate”. This, as Christian has been stating, is straight out of the Israeli playbook in Gaza, and is also a war crime (collective punishment).

    But, the kicker to all of this is that, in his death, Suleimani may have achieved his objective to get the US out of Iraq. If you want to know more about him, there is a great interview on democracynow (which I have come to hate, but …) with a professor from John Hopkins Uni: 00:15:15 to 00:33:54. However, the following interview with a Guardian journalist is also excellent. i.e just skip the “news” section up front.

    https://publish.dvlabs.com/democracynow/360/dn2020-0106.mp4

    And, the ultimate irony is that the efforts of the MEK supporting US warhawks against Iran have, by their actions, increased Iran’s power and influence in the region again, and again, and again.

    The whole thing is insane on so many levels, historically, legally, strategically, etc..

    Unless all you care about is war.

      Thanks Hugo!
      The “Democracy Now” interviews were well worth watching.
      https://publish.dvlabs.com/democracynow/360/dn2020-0106.mp4
      (meat and potatoes starts around the 14:40 minute mark)

      I particularly liked hearing from the Professor at John Hopkins University.
      She gave a good backdrop about General Qassem Suleimani, and his image.
      I did not realize that Iran was involved in fighting ISIS.
      The Colonel (at the end of the video) confirms her assessments.

      We have clowns in the White House (actually in all of Washington D.C.)

      The United States Vice President Mike Pence tweeted:
      (Suleimani)”Assisted in the clandestine travel to Afghanistan of 10 of the 12 terrorists who carried out the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.”

    Protest at the U.S. Embassy – Baghdad

    Like Corbett pointed out, I think that it is important to emphasize that about 3 days prior to the assassination of General Qassem Suleimani at the public airport, there was the protest at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

    It was NOT an “attack” on the U.S. Embassy.
    It was a protest with huge crowds.
    Sure…some folks were throwing rocks and pretty riled up.
    But the protestors were not shooting guns.
    In the video footage, the Iraqi Security Forces were there, calmly watching.
    U.S. forces were shooting off tear gas in trying to keep the crowds off the walls.
    VIDEO – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HClSBSWRkcI&feature=youtu.be&t=1m27s

    One protestor was quoted:
    “Americans are unwanted in Iraq. They are a source of evil and we want them to leave.”

    I think that this protest event is significantly tied to the assassination of Suleimani.
    The embassy protest was a U.S. embarrassment on the world stage.
    After all, there were huge crowds.

    I believe that someone in the White House decided to slam the hammer down in order to send a message about any further embassy protests.
    That is my personal speculation on why Suleimani was targeted on Iraqi soil.

    About the “only lies come from the Pentagon” aspect – here’s one bit of info that was just posted on Moon of Alabama regarding nuclear weapons testing and the “evil China” on NPR (National Public Radio):

    “Trump’s Push For Lofty Nuclear Treaty Sparks Worry Over Current Deal

    While it has far fewer nuclear weapons, China has been doing more testing than the rest of the world combined, U.S. officials have said.”

    Source: https://www.npr.org/2020/01/01/792725906/trumps-push-for-lofty-nuclear-treaty-sparks-worry-over-current-deal?t=1578329379315

    But:

    NOTHING could be further from the truth! It is nothing but a blatant lie:

    Nuclear tests by country: U.S. 1032, USSR 727, UK 88, France 217, China 47
    (source: “List of nuclear weapons tests” on Wikipedia)

    So the actual amount of testing done by China is only about 5% of what the US has done (and even less regarding the total number of tests – about 2%).

    If China had tested more than that you can be sure it would be on Wikipropagandia!

    NPR surely knows what “U.S. officials” came up with this bullshit but it’s likely either from the state department, the CIA – or the Pentagon…

    • decti says:

      The tallies are appearing to be longer term, when the pentagon is clearly referring to current time period activities so neither is wrong, unlike the knee-jerk assumption that pentagon=lie…… ttyl

      • calibrator says:

        “clearly” – right…

        Taylor-made statistics are a swell thing, right?
        Just define where the line is to be drawn!

        The Pentagon produces lies, more lies and even more lies.
        If that appears as a knee-jerk to you I can’t change it.

        • decti says:

          yes ‘clearly’ because the pentagon knows that the world would determine current alarm based on the time line where treaties stopped the testing among the major powers…. so the ‘taylor-made statistics needed were recent, not total history.. ttyl

  4. HomeRemedySupply says:

    This is a sad, disheartening note.

    Reuters EXCERPT
    The president also issued a threat to Baghdad after the Iraqi parliament’s call for U.S. and other foreign troops to leave the country in a backlash against the killing of Soleimani.

    “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build, long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,” Trump told reporters.

    Trump said that if Iraq asked U.S. forces to leave and it was not done on a friendly basis, “we will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame.”
    https://www.investing.com/news/world-news/trump-stands-by-threat-on-iranian-cultural-sites-warns-of-major-retaliation-2052734

    ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
    People and nations are soooo screwed.
    The U.S. can come bomb your people and infrastructure, set up shop, make rules and never leave.
    What can ya do?
    Ya are sooo screwed.

    Hitler looks like a puppydog compared to this crap.

    I hate to say it, but things are not going to get better with this type of game play.

      More than 800 bases around the world to guarantee peace & prosperity!

    • Duck says:

      Its a very bad sign that we’re trying threaten our former subject province Iraq… its a sign of weakness and if the US is REALLY that weak then use of force is way more likely and if that happens who knows where it’ll end?
      The open ended ‘IF you strike back in any way…’ becomes a get-into-war card any time they feel like using it.

    • decti says:

      Read Art of the Deal and this ‘threat’ is straight up offer to leave with a price tag attached to each — leave peacefully or defend with consequent costs in sanctions….

      frankly, we’d be happier to see them promise to pay and we’d just pack and leave.

      why not think ‘deal’…. ttyl

      • calibrator says:

        > frankly, we’d be happier to see them promise to pay and we’d just pack and leave.

        That is perhaps the most blue-eyed thing I’ve read this week.

    • scpat says:

      HRS,
      I was just about to post this quote but see you have beaten me to it.

      “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build, long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it.”
      -Trump

      This resonated with me because it can describe so many other situations that any given American president may inherit from former administrations. The specific line, “long before my time” really hit home with me. Simply, a president can’t just go changing the military industrial complex status quo (I’m not suggesting that he actually wants to). There is too much money involved. It is too deeply entrenched in the way business and government operate.

  5. calibrator says:

    And speaking about rumors:

    There is apparently a rumor going on that Trump whispered to some guests on Mar-a-Lago that “something will big be happening in Iran soon”.

    – – – – – –

    Now the aforementioned Craig Murray has something interesing on Twitter regarding Lockheed shares:

    “I’ve marked the time (red line) of the death of Soleimani on this graph of Lockheed Martin share price (times are EST). It is almost as if in the 24 hours before some speculators knew what was happening!”

    https://twitter.com/CraigMurrayOrg/status/1213626795548954624
    (Interesting thread, by the way)

    Nothing new under the U.S. sun, I guess…

  6. John Lothe says:

    Check this out FOR THE RECORD : ASSASSINATION OF SOLEIMANI PHOTO ANALYSIS https://www.bitchute.com/video/h8VIW2WLOCgM/

    Not that it ultimately matters but after a little photo analysis the one picture being put forward by mainstream sources as evidence of the Generals death is a hand with a Ring on it is not the same ring the general is seen with in other pictures. Could have multiple different red rings, could be a faked photo just for propaganda purposes and the guy got blown to itty bitty bits. Either way the world is moving forward as if the act has already been done.

    • UKJC says:

      A tad paranoid? So the Yanks brey about his death and millions of Muslims (Sunni / Shia / and others) across the planet greave, but you seem to imply Soleimani’s death is fake? – lost.

      • decti says:

        interesting how you pretend to think you know what Sunni think about QS death, with there were other video clips of some people dancing in the streets of Baghdad at the QS news.. and there was a clip from an iranian woman who is president of some resistance movement where they were grateful for the ‘help’ afforded by the elimination of QS but they wanted no more help as they felt they wanted their own actions to lead to changes they wanted.. namely they want to ‘evict the mullahs’…..

        https://saraacarter.com/maryam-rajavi-qassem-soleimani-was-a-vicious-criminal-it-is-time-to-evict-the-mullahs-from-the-region/

      • John Lothe says:

        @UKJC
        The only thing I imply is that after viewing what is being put forth as evidence for his death, doesn’t match up when viewed critically. Is the general dead? I don’t know, I never claimed to know that. I do know that the ring on his finger in the photo where he is alive is not the same ring in the photo of his supposed dead hand. Also, Paranoid, nice buzz word lol but being critical of all the claims surrounding an supposed attack that could lead to escalations and global conflict is far from being paranoid, how ever that is a word that glowing ones and their useful idiots use to dissuade and insult people asking difficult questions. In the end it doesn’t matter much that, little evidence has been put forth, and again the evidence that has is less than impressive, there are those that want war and will do everything within their power to get it, even lie, especially lie.

    • lovetodust says:

      I had similar thoughts – and still do. My first reaction was “they couldn’t possibly have done that”. This isn’t a war-time casualty – it’s an assassination.

      It would not surprise me if all is not as it appears. Nothing is beyond the ken.

    • zyxzevn says:

      This does not work.
      US has been lying about Russia a lot.
      Almost everything in the US are lies.
      Know that the war pushing party is usually the biggest liar.
      People on the ground just want peace.
      Independent on the ground reporting is the only way to know what happens.

      • decti says:

        well… similar sentiment applied when the Russian Soviet Union was in Afghanistan instead of US..
        AND
        as for recognizing the enemy handiwork in MSM or RT either some ‘warfare’ is not what you’d think it is..

        in conclusion, you’d better start watching where the flak will be coming from the Chinese in their infiltration of the UN, complete with the latest scheme to control the internet of things under the direction of the Republic of China and in control of ICANN… plus mandatory vaxxing with whatever, under the control of WHO where all but one of the major agencies within WHO are headed by chinese ‘experts’..

  8. UKJC says:

    James, in general that was an OK interview. I also follow Ryan but think you really need to find other sources regarding what has been going on in Iraq – (in particular) before such an interview. Ryan is good and has people at heart. There are many others of the same mind and particularly who are a tad more local to events. I was a little disappointed by one segment which appeared to give more weight to western news media over more local media. I do question everything and listen to many opinions:

    Conservative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HdmcoRe8MU The Duran underplays this nightmare.

    Left: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNreMm_QIVk Caleb makes many great points about US propaganda and Soleimani as a person.

    Interested US Citizen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4IzqhZ-JFM Joanne interviews Elijah Magnier – gives history to the Iranian influence in Iraq and the PMU’s – saving their skins when the US watched ISIS move into Iraq back then.

    “Back then” must not be memory holed, it is key history to understand Libya and Syria…

    Otherwise – thanks, keep up the good work.

    As a former Iranian diplomat, living now in the U.S. and part of the diplomatic cadre that facilitated the return of Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran in 1979, may I say by this action Empire has lit a raging fire which will smolder for years with untold sacrifices….Iran is the oldest nation on the planet with a 7000 year history…words are not big enough to describe what happened with Soleimani’s assassination..especially as he was invited to Iraq to serve as a mediator per Trump’s request and then assassinated when he arrived…

    • wylie1 says:

      If Iran and Khomeini are so wonderful, why did you leave, Mr. sharia law lover? Why not go back to your 7000 year pride and joy rather than having to suffer all the western decadence and ignorance?

      Over the many years, how many Iranian protesters in Iran did Soleimani kill? …who simply desired freedom of choice, to be left alone to live how they choose; knowing that no other man nor book writer has the right to choose for them or dictate to them.

      No doubt the usa Corp-Govt-Media complex lies. Yet how are we to believe anything from a muslim source when they are instructed to lie, cheat, and steal from the infidel, in muhammed’s book? The same book that muslims claim describes a religion of peace, when the latter chapters describes the opposite and that those latter chapters override the former.

      Regular Iranians, Jews, Americans, Palestinians, Pakistanis, Asians, Africans, etc. (I went to school with those and more) all want to be left alone to live their lives as they see fit. It is the zealot leaders and their ego driven followers who pretend to be superior to the goyim, the infidel, and the deplorables. If only the superior minded could ever see that they are far worse, and in dire need of that which they desire to do to the others they think so little of.

      If usa is about law and order, where was the fair court trial of Soleimani and many others? If muslamists are about good, where was the good treatment of (send out of their country) all those who took no aggressive action upon the muslims but had their heads removed for not being a muslim, not believing that sharia is wise?

      There will ALWAYS be war until the people of ALL locations decide it is in their best interests to stop the power and control hungry, stop the war profiteers and blood thirsty, to chain the psychopaths if necessary.

      Who can blame Iraq or any other country for wanting the usa military to leave? Trump should have taken that opportunity to exit, pronto. Send them tankers on a regular basis to collect enough oil to pay for the equivalent of a competitive bid contract to build the airbase and then call it a day. Explain to the public and military that it was unfortunate that his predecessors lied but now it is time to quit robbing the american people and messing with the rest of the world. Unfortunately Trump seems to be in league with the jewish zealots, at least in part.

    For myself I am always looking at this from a wider perspective of the larger agenda unfolding, this is nothing more than the project for the new american century continuing on, what was laid out in their September 2000 publication of rebuilding america’s defenses just continues to play out ever since 911 happened, being the new pearl harbor, to conduct, what was called in so many military white papers – the revolution in military affairs.
    https://archive.org/details/RebuildingAmericasDefenses

    At the end of their list was to start a war with china. Since the BRICS economic agreement came about – war with Iran means war with China and Russia. The global agenda was always about using america as an engine towards world government and when the time was right; to destroy america. This will certainly escalate to WW3 unless the american people get their heads out of their asses and put a lease on the maga dog.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSN7Nz4ECQM

    This war crime that was committed only goes to further destroy america’s reputation in the eyes of the world(if there is any left at point) – when china invades and the red dawn begins the rest of the world will cheer on the destruction of america – all of this of course being part of the larger plot. Afterwards china will be used to brings the rest of the nations into the global government.

    All of this has always been leading to ww3 – it has always been their plan from just over a hundred years ago, if not longer. In fact, one could say that 911 was the real start of it from the clandestine point of view, because it is a war designed to bring the worlds masses into the global government.

    As far as I am concerned the intelligence behind this great deception and conspiracy is not human and this assassination is simply a small act in the greater tale unfolding; I don’t see its course changing unless the people wake up – but i don’t see that happening. There are the few who have truly freed their minds and then there are the snakes, liers, psychopaths and idiots at large;and that is including all of those who know of this conspiracy but have been suckered in by the trump psy-op and all of the cia agents like alex jones and clyde lewis to name a few…

    Only some grand act of Providence can stop this shit from unfolding as planned at this point…

    Happy New Year James (and Corbett world…). One thing to consider in reviewing the new word “immanent” being classified is to understand that this is the NWO mechanism that will drive 2020. After all, the entire U.S. Federal Budget is now classified, or, at least, classifiable if they don’t want anyone to examine it, or even portions of it (see FASAB 56). The powers that shouldn’t be have reached clinical levels of paranoia, projecting their fear (and guilt for what they have done, and are doing to…) of us in such ways as to magnify their desperation for secrecy and more power. This is what is so dangerous about this time. Their (tpt-s-b) internal terror, and its attendant disconnection (many of them have long-standing dissociative disorders) from humanity, makes their paranoia much more unstable and much more volatile. Trump is doing what all “presidents” do — protecting himself (we can only imagine what they have on him…much more than his relationship with Epstein) from assassination. If anyone thinks otherwise, s/he is not paying attention. They are heading to WW3…screw anybody who’s against that program. What a show!!!

  15. bladtheimpaler says:

    In analyzing the whole complexity that make up the inputs to the strategically important oil resource rich region of the Mid East perhaps we should also take a step back and view the larger scale as seen by the ‘pyramid cap.’ That would be their drive for a centralized world government and a completely centralized planetary human economy. How much does the interactions in this event play to the uni polar NWO, as exemplified by none greater than by the USA versus the multi polar world as exemplified by junior member Iran? The ‘cap’ can control both sides of the equation and can advance their globalist agenda along predetermined lines of tactical and strategic operations through either paradigm and stage a clear victory one over the other, a pyrrhic victory or a loss as timing and agenda present themselves.

    Governments serve as a BoD over the nation state corporations and owe their allegiance to those that can and do control the financial life of those corporations and the power levers within them. Quigley’s domination of the political of each nation. Not that these controllers are not incapable of making gross mistakes through their own prejudices or stooping to take part in lesser affairs. Just sayin’ that there is another scale to this that is not being talked about at all with any blame falling on the political class of stooges and patsies.

    Both state corporations are signed on in one fashion or another to the NWO protocols, Agenda 21 et al. One look at Iran’s newer central bvanl building, a reverse panopticon complete with all seeing eye atop should clue us in.

    Had to laugh at the mention of Zero Hedge. I notice a lot of mainstream
    propaganda pops up on that site. Zero Hedge is owned by ABC Media ltd. which,
    pretty much, explains everything.

      Actually, I appreciate “Zero Hedge”.
      I know that Pilato and Corbett have poo-poo’d Zero Hedge before.
      And I also heard it here on this interview with Ryan.

      But I don’t care. Everyone can have their own perspectives.

      Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that every article on Zero Hedge is apostle written and gospel.

      I appreciate the Zero Hedge format.
      Quickly I can scroll down the page at any hour, and pick up headlines which give me an overview of current news or events.

      Some of the authors I detest, but even they, on occasion, offer a tidbit which I can then follow up somewhere else.

      Some articles are real winners, especially in the area of the economy and finance. I often see some good statistics and graphs.

      In fact, just tonight (wee hours of Wed. morning), when reading an update(s) about the Iran situation, graphs of the market were also presented. Gold, Oil, Stocks, etc.
      This was insightful. It showed a strong spike up, then hours later a reversal.

      Of course, Zero Hedge is not my only source of information.

        New Year – ZEN

        Over the course of the past year, I noticed that I was becoming more and more sardonic.
        Crustier.
        A bit too much strain on finding faults with things.
        Sure…places like CNN really ask for sarcasm.

        In the “Truth Community”, we often loudly notice those aspects which are ‘out of whack’.

        However, there becomes a gray area between “critical thinking” and being hyper-critical.
        I was even finding myself acting more like a curmudgeon with people I associate with.
        That is not who I am, nor who I want to be.

        For example:
        Some people may enjoy a Paul Joseph Watson rant.
        Maybe in a blue moon, I might take to it. But for the most part, I want to avoid that vitriol (definition: “cruel and bitter criticism” like sulfuric acid).

        It is not healthy. Not for me.

        More and more, I am avoiding an excessive amount of ‘fault finding’, but rather, focusing more on ‘understanding’.

        In this New Year, I am gonna try to find a better balance.
        Get a little of my Zen back.
        With things the way they are, I will need all the Zen I can carry.

    At 10:38 and also at the start of the beginning preview of the podcast, can somebody help me out here, because I’ve listened to it a dozen times and keep hearing Ryan Cristian say “Whether we’re talking about the Iraq war, whether we’re talking about the lies about Viagra and Libya…”

    “Viagra”?

    Lol

    Looks like I’ll be adding ‘hearing aid’ to my list….

    But,anyway…. Even simply using the microcosm of this comment board, it sure looks like these events are going to be really stirring up a cauldron of heated emotions as we head into WW3….

    The Orangutan, Jared, Bin Salman, Netanyahu, man, they got some hard-on for the Iranians, don’t they? Not to mention the simmering neocon collective, Wall Street, the titans of corporatocracy, and the European Aristocracy in general.

    Hindsight they say is 20/20.

    Let’s see if there’s a 2021 to prove it.

    Happy New Year!

      Hi candlelight,
      I always like seeing your posts.
      Here is an old headline…

      BREAKING NEWS!
      April 29, 2011
      Libya troops ‘given Viagra to rape’
      THE United States says Muammar Gaddafi’s regime gives Viagra to troops to carry out rapes as the UN Security Council wrangles over Coalition attacks in Libya.

      https://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/libya-troops-given-viagra-to-rape/news-story/760468d92012c918a5bb10bd6e014fd6

      EXCERPTS
      Russia and other nations have argued that France, Britain, the United States and their allies patrolling a no-fly zone over Libya are going beyond the mandate given by UN Security Council resolutions. But the United States insisted that Coalition actions were within the resolutions.

      US ambassador Susan Rice highlighted the use of Viagra in the closed-door meeting as the debate intensified, according to diplomats present.

      Ms Rice said Gaddafi’s forces were “issuing Viagra to soldiers so that they go out and rape,” said one diplomat at the meeting.

      The ambassador did not give sources for the allegations. But another diplomat at the meeting said she made the comment as part of a debate with another envoy to highlight that “the Coalition is confronting an adversary doing reprehensible things”.

      The US mission did not immediately comment on the claims.

      Allegations of Viagra being given to Gaddafi forces have been aired in British tabloid newspapers. A doctor in the Libyan city of Ajdabiya said last month that Gaddafi troops had been given Viagra and condoms as part of a campaign of sexual violence.

      Margot Wallstrom, the UN special representative on sexual violence in conflict, issued a statement last week highlighting that reports of rapes in the Libya war have been “brutally silenced”…

      …As Ms. Rice left the talks she said that the claims made by critics of the Coalition actions were “not accurate” but did not comment further.

      France and Britain also strongly defended the Coalition attacks on Gaddafi targets in the debate.

      “The Security Council was told at the time what the coalition would be doing,” said a western diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity. “The bottom line is that the action has been saving lives.”

      Originally published asLibya troops ‘given Viagra to rape’.

        Hello HRS,

        I thank you, kindly, for clearing up this mystery for me. I guess I can safely scratch ‘hearing aid’ off my needs list – at least for the time being. 🙂

        But, now that you mention it, I do recall the accusation about Viagra being issued to Gaddafi’s soldiers, the better with which to pillage and rape (using condoms, too?). The allegations had the distinct smell of “throwing babies from incubators” Bush era bullshit all over it. Simply laughable stupidity. Or, rather, just plain seriously stupid.

        Yet, nine years later, it’s truly good to know that the NATO Coalition had been, as quoted above, “saving lives”. And through their heroic actions, we now have a stable, peaceful Libya, prosperous, free of turmoil and united as one!….

        Good grief.

    I believe in this conversation Whitney Webb and her excellent work was recommended by Ryan. I enjoyed her latest article too. That said, ‘question everything’ was reminded by Ryan too.
    You can easily see mintpressnews'(mpn) anti-Israel, anti-Jewish bias but I watched something by Johnny Gat/Vigilant Intelligence just now. More of a conspiracy-theorist you can’t get. ZOG and everything.
    “Putin, Bibi, & The Bolsheviks”
    Around 5 min he mentions Webb and mpn
    https://youtu.be/9VxfKAgioZI?t=308 or
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/xEWhf2lmgstZ/
    and references the following:
    https://www.richardsilverstein.com/2016/12/10/kgb-infiltrated-highest-echelons-israels-army-business-political-leadership/
    “NOTE: I originally wrote this piece for Mint Press News. Its editor, Mnar Muhawesh, killed the piece, which caused me to sever my relationship with Mint Press, an outlet I’d contributed to for several years. These are hard blows, but ones independent journalists face regularly (I know I have).”

    In this other video Johnny Gat shows more evidence for biases of mpn, Muhawesh, Webb
    “Will Vladimir Putin save the world? 2”
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/SOV2tdrWkWRE/
    The first 15-20 minutes.

    I don’t wanna accuse or expose Whitney Webb. She might simply be fond of Russia or biased towards them. Johnny Gat presents a tweet that you could euphemistically interpret in that direction too.
    It is just an important reminder that outlets are not your own websites.

    Also, I may have made that assertion some time already but I wish to repeat, that I personally think Daniel Estulin is a Russian/Soviet secret agent/disinfo agent.

    The above mentioned Richard Silverstein published on Iran too the recent days. I will submit it into the other thread.
