We need to prepare our Middle East Xmas shopping list before the big day. First item on the list is our Turkey. Can’t have Xmas without a nice Turkey.
The Tripoli “government” backed by Erdogan is the Muslim Brotherhood. The same Brotherhood that was recently running Egypt, and was trying (with Erdogan’s help) to stage a coup in Saudi Arabia.That makes this mess more understandable. Sisi would never want a Muslim Brotherhood government on his border. But what is motivating Erdogan to move to help Tripoli now that the oil and gas grab in the eastern Med appears off?
Yemen our Xmas cracker
If we are quick we can still pull Yemen in pieces like we did with Syria but unfortunately they are successful in fighting back.
According to Iranian foreign minster Zarif Israel has Conducted a Nuclear Missile Test “Aimed At Iran”
Israel today tested a nuke-missile, aimed at Iran.
E3 & US never complain about the only nuclear arsenal in West Asia—armed with missiles actually DESIGNED to be capable of carrying nukes—but has fits of apoplexy over our conventional & defensive ones. https://t.co/r4EqXkhcCN
And according to a Avi Scharf, the editor of the English version of Haaretz newspaper, the missile test may have had a flight trajectory deep into the Mediterranean, as far West as past the island of Crete.
To track and handle it all, IAI telemetry plane + at least two Israeli AF g550 aewc/shavit spyplanes + hercs flew all the way out past Crete pic.twitter.com/s9VyBQLVKJ

These are alternative news outlets. Some are slightly center left but in the main the coverage seems fair. You will not find any of this in the MSM which is becoming increasingly irrelevant.
First we turn to the Grayzone, which carries articles in English and Spanish and seems to have good South American coverage. Also articles on the Palestinians and the Gaza strip and on operation Condor 2.0: After Bolivia coup, Trump dubs Nicaragua ‘national security threat’ and targets Mexico. I have been following this on other feeds. It seems (after the assassination of the Mormons) that Trump wants to declare Mexico a narco state (terrorist threat). This looks like the Monroe doctrine. The US is increasingly active in South America. The first article we high light (keeping with the M.E. theme) is the one on Lebanon. Note the word Technocracy
Also of interest is an article on the White Helmets. The narrative is unraveling and we can see what liars and manipulators they really are. No matter, when they are about to be exposed they just kill anyone who gets in their way.
Oh dear, so hard to keep all them lies straight…..move on, nothing to see here. Almost ready to start the next adventure in the Middle East.
The UK column
Mike Robinson and Patrick Henningsen present new perspectives on the London Bridge terror attack right before upcoming General Election. Of special interest is the Green new Deal and COP25 climate conference in Madrid, Spain (at 29:46).

Don’t let them lie to you the population of the earth is actually shrinking …..
It is nice to stay in your warm bed, lovely and warm and dream your dreams. It is unpleasant when someone throws cold water over you or shouts at you to wake up! Why can’t they just leave you alone. Perhaps they should. Perhaps they should not tell you that the house is on fire. Perhaps you should be left to die peacefully in your sleep from smoke inhalation. After all if you survive you will be left with nothing anyway (except your life)….so perhaps that annoying person should just shut up.
Your house is on fire….wake up!
It is not just me shouting to the Zombified masses…..lots of people are shouting. People are in denial….even religious people…..or should I say, especially religious people. People who ought to know better. What do they think is going to happen? That they are going to miss out on the time of trouble? That they will be suddenly raptured into the NEW JERUSALEM? If so, go back to sleep.
The above article by Brandon Smith has two very good links to his previous articles one called “The economic end game explained” from which the following quotes:
"I relate these points because the future I am about to suggest here might sound outlandish to some, because it is so contrary to the “official” accounting of our current financial world. It is important to remember that the mainstream, the majority,is almost always wrong and that the truth is very rarely accepted broadly until calamity has already fallen".
"They have openly admitted to the public on numerous occasions EXACTLY what they want— namely, the institution of a truly global and centralized economic system revolving around a highly controlled world currency framework and dominated by a select cult of banking oligarchs.Anyone who claims that this is not the goal is either a liar or an uneducated fool".
His other article which predates the first article has the title “Globalists Only Need One More Major Event To Finish Sabotaging The Economy” (links can be found in the above article).
Off course, Peter is promoting “gold” but he is wrong in thinking that the “gold standard” will be returned (even though the BIS now accepts gold in its SDR) what they are after is complete control and this can only be achieved with a digital crypto currency.
This is what is really going on in Saudi
On the morning of September 14, a fire broke out on the territory of Saudi Arabia’s national oil company. Authorities said the fire occurred as a result of an attack by unmanned aerial vehicles. According to the Associated Press, earlier oil facilities of the country became targets of the drones of the Shiite movement Ansar Allah. As a result, oil production in Saudi Arabia has more than halved. How so? To understand the connection between the destruction of the plant and oil production, pay attention to what the blasted plant did. But he was engaged in the separation of water and sand from the extracted “oil” – the fact is that from the wells of the Saudis instead of oil there is already porridge from sand and water. This is the very “well fluid” named after Hodor. Wells essentially died. Oil is over. To make it clear – here’s a picture of how it works:
This article has been translated from a Russian blog:
Peak Oil: Translated Russian Blog
We are about to be brought to a state of Neo-feudalism. All sorts of excuses are sought to distract us from this truth -climate change being the big one. The climate is changing but it is not man made and it cannot be prevented. Moreover, oil is running out. There is still plenty…. but not enough for everyone (you) and it will become more costly (EROI) and politically difficult (invade other countries) to recover. This means that the elite need a smaller ; population and more control. They will use every lie in the book to control people; they will even tell you that the “messiah has returned” – Why do you think Pompeo (ex CIA) wants to implement the Christian-Zionist end time scenario? Because he is a man of faith? (LOL) Conspiracy theory? (LOL). You are in denial.
You don’t believe that your Governments and the elite are lying murdering psychopaths? Then I recommend you take your time and watch the following video’s (p.s. this is not just about Greater Israel, trillions of dollars have been siphoned out the system):
Incontrovertible rock solid evidence that Iran attacked the innocent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) for no reason at all. Al-Malki said a total of 18 drones and seven missiles were launched, including what he called Iranian Delta Wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
These missiles and drones traveled undetected from Iran over the Gulf waters passing over the US and UK armada and dozens of oil transports and other supply ships without being spotted. Then they struck the oil storage tanks from the opposite direction with perfect precision. Luckily the storage tanks did not explode because they were empty…but they gave off lots of smoke. This will shut down KSA production for months, possibly for years and push prices higher.
Actually, the fires have all been extinguished in less than a week. The damage seems to be minimal.
Oil output will be fully back online by end of September, Aramco IPO on track, Saudis say
The missiles and drones were not fired by Iran but by Houthi’s (if you believe that) but they were made by Iran and supplied by Iran therefore Iran is behind the attack. But who supplies KSA with its weapons with which it attacks Yemen??
The KSA held a conference to show the world its incontrovertible evidence:
And now exit center-left, Pomp-ass
Fake, Faker, Falseness
It is quite clear that the you have failed the CIA course that teaches you to “lie, cheat and steal” that you boast is part of the “glory” of the American experiment. Your chariots of glory will be your shame (Isa 22:18) you false Christian.
Despite being ready to dump a load (of ordinance) on Iran the President sent his Press Secretary to clarify the tweet in what seems like a step back from the brink. Perhaps his policy is constipated?
Something smells bad
All we can say is that something smells about the whole affair. Who do we go to for the truth? Should we ask Pompeo who admits that he lies,cheats and steals or should we ask the Saudi’s (LOL)?
The lying liars lie
The only thing that is a certainty is that everything you are told is a lie. We live in the post truth era. Truth does not matter only perception.We will tell you what to think. What we know is that the Houthi’s admitted it and that Iran denied it. Any truth to those statements? Well, the Houthi’s apparently do have the drone capability.
Yemen has endured bombings by Saudi and the killing of elementary school children in their buses by using lockheed missiles delivered by US and Saudi pilots in US Aircraft. Only Iran has condemned these killings. We must not forget that it was Trump who left JCPOA, declared a de-facto war on Iran through sanctions, and has ignored the call to stop aiding the Saudis in the attacks on Yemen.
Some (conspiracy theorists) are saying that the US capability is not up to scratch. The Russians have developed the S-300 and the S-400 and are supplying them to their allies. It is generally acknowledged that these are far superior technology. The reasoning goes that the USA now produces junk through the military contracting system and that everything is corrupted. After the fiasco with the Boeing aircraft (Boeing is also a military contractor) this seems likely. Just because you spend “trillions” on it does not make it better and Russia has been concentrating on defensive equipment such as the S-300 and S-400. This might well explain why the USA has backed down (albeit temporarily).
American Military Doctrine Backfires, Hyped and Extortionate US Air Defenses are Pathetic
Others point to Bibi being given a slap-down by Putin.
This is where and how the winds -and with them the tectonic plates-have shifted. And don’t underestimate it. Bibi can presumably count on Trump more than any other US President in his time, and the US is supposedly this almighty force, also in the Middle East, but today Putin just tells him “don’t you dare!” Putin refuses to let him touch Assad’s territory and -Russian- weapons. The clincher is those weapons have become so sophisticated that Bibi, Trump support or not, puts his tail between his legs and flies back, hoping nobody notices what shape he’s in. And in that humiliation, Lebanon is the cherry that Putin puts on top of the pie. “Now that you’re here, I want you to stop harassing Lebanon too. Yes, now you may go.” Lebanon must have stunned Bibi.
Two American spy HD satellites covering the region in KSA where the oil facilities were attacked were malfunctioning and footage is unusable. Moreover, the NSA/CIA employees tasked with monitoring events in the region were asleep while the incident occurred.
He should have added that the drone pieces were buried in an unmarked grave and it has been handed over to the FBI to investigate (sic). What a shame that Bolton was fired only a few days ago.
The truth is that one way or another we will never know exactly what (or who) lies behind this. It is perhaps coincidence that John Bolton was recently sacked, coincidence that Aramco requires higher oil prices for the upcoming IPO, coincidence that Bibi is struggling in his upcoming election, coincidence that the US and Israel are signing a mutual defense pact and coincidence that a nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the world’s #1 defense & national security think tank posted a tweet four days ago that warned about this very instillation being attacked. Could this be how the NeoCons save a flailing Netanyahu and establish a next election win for Trump?
However, Pompeo says that Iran is behind it and as Trump has sacked the warmonger Bolton they must be speaking the truth. They obviously do not want war. And Pompeo who lies and cheats and steals (his words not mine) is now telling the truth:
Are ye not entertained?
Frankly, at this point it doesn’t really matter “who did it”. Both Israel and the USA have demonstrated that they are determined for war. And Saudi Arabia has been decimating Yemen and perpetrating war crimes. So, if the Houthis have manged to strike at the Saudi’s (who don’t get their hands dirty but use mercenaries) good on them. Hit them where it hurts (in the pocket)….perhaps it will make the Saudi royals rethink when they have less to spend on Call Girls, drugs and yachts while exporting extreme Wahhabism all over the world. As one comment said;
Greatest strength, greatest weakness. All the Saudi Royalty had to do with its vast wealth is figure out a way to spread it around. Instead, in their malice and delusion, they wanted to become an imperial power. With less success than Italy. It could have become the Denmark of its neighborhood. Competent, modern, instead it painted bull's eyes on its back by exporting religious bigotry. Saudi Arabia, the last home of Idi Amin.
Moon of Alabama states that the Houthis claimed internal support from “the cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.” If true this would make the Saudi’s even more paranoid than usual. There is no love lost between MBS and some of the other royals that he ousted with a coup. On some of the drone attack videos gunfire can be heard….perhaps dissidents staged ground support? Also Moon of Alabama suggests that Iraq may have been a drone launch site (remember Israeli fighter jets recently attacked Iraq and the country has a Shiite majority).
Fox news just said 80% of Saudi production has shut down and Dept. of energy head Rick Perry says he will open up the Strategic oil reserve. Whoopee! Higher prices for all oil producers – at least the U.S. shale industry will benefit as will the float of Aramco. As long as the attacks are “manageable” it is win, win. What is not to like? Perhaps I am being too cynical.
The emerging Beast
What we are witnessing is the emergence of the Beast power in the Gulf region. It is an allegiance between the various Arab states with Israel in charge (the Harlot).
" And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast " (Rev 17:12-13).
The territory of the ten kings is that spoken of in Genesis 15:
Why Israel is quietly cosying up to Gulf monarchies
"Evidence is mounting of increasingly close ties between Israel and five of the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – none of which have formal relations with the Jewish state".
“Cooperation in different ways and at different levels isn’t necessarily visible above the surface, but what is below the surface is far greater than at any other period.”
"But in spite of these recent flashes of publicity, hard evidence of Israeli ties with the Gulf states is still rare – because they remain largely covert".
"The Israelis quietly participated in joint military exercises with UAE forces, both in the US and in Greece, from 2016. Last year UAE military personnel reportedly visited an Israeli airbase to review the operations of US-made F-35 fighter jets, though this was denied by Israel. Clandestine cooperation is believed to include Israeli intelligence surveillance of Iran, and the sale of Israeli drones used in the war in Yemen".
"In addition to shared contempt for Iran, the Gulf states and Israel have been brought together by a common hostility to Islamist parties".
"The attitudes of Gulf governments have clearly changed. But the bottom line is that Israel has failed to provide the incentives required for the Saudis and their allies to come out of the closet, to allow them to reconcile geopolitical logic with popular sentiment, because it has not offered anything approaching an acceptable deal for the Palestinians. “Everyone knows about the rapprochement with Israel, but no one can talk about it publicly, and no one can advocate it because there is nothing for the Palestinians in return,” concludes an Arab analyst in Abu Dhabi. “The assumption is that if it was going to happen openly, it would have to be in return for something big, and it does not look as though that is going to happen."
By “his wife” the article means that the Jewish billionaire and extreme Zionist Sheldon Adelson who supports both Netanyahu’s and Trump, recently turned against Bibi;
"To add reputational insult to injury, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Bibi’s stalwart U.S. financial supporters, are reported by the Israeli press to have told authorities investigating Netanyahu’s alleged corruption that the prime minister’s wife, Sarah, is “crazy” and “decides everything.” That will not help the PM at the polls."
As one commentator remarks;
They are trying to keep people from connecting the dots. Trying to reverse perception after their exposure at apex. Its the same BS with the phony fight between Mossad Jewish Mafia-Zuckerberg and Bibi. Saw more of that today with other stuff too. Reminiscent of the old Soros is after Israel bit. Its amazing how well these simple productions can work. Too late for that now though. Next it will be Bezos vs. The Intel community...lol
Looks like they are getting ready to introduce us either to “Dear Leader” or perhaps the “antichrist” or maybe they are one and the same thing? After-all, they all seem to want total control, religious or otherwise:
Use algo’s to mind read
Use algo’s to data-mine
Use algo’s to psychologically profile and manipulate
A NATO military intelligence official who was briefed on Pompeo’s claims about increased Iranian aggression in the Middle East said the substance of the intelligence that the Americans briefed was utterly unconvincing — even insulting. “Do they think that we are stupid?” asked the NATO official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
P.S. Part 2 mentions Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) who assumed the presidency following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He was very pro-Israel probably because his grandfather and father were members of the Christadelphian Church. The irony is that LBJ used a “false flag” incident (the Gulf of Tonkin) to expand the role of the USA in the disastrous Vietnam War and a “false flag” (attack on the Liberty) was used by Israel against the USA. Whoever believes that the “deep state” had no role in all of the above events (including the Kennedy assassination) is naive.
A war with Iran has wider implications for regional stability: See the Blog the Moon of Alabama: The Lunacy Of Waging A War On Iran From Which China And Russia Will Win
The question needs to be asked whether or not this is a deliberate "Apocalyptic hoax"staged by Christian-Zionists in order to establish regional stability under a newly appointed "religious authority" in Jerusalem. Perhaps the way is being cleared for the introduction of the Trump "Deal of the Century" Peace plan. After all should (((Iran))) and (((Hezbollah))) attack perhaps the "Dome of the Rock" could be "accidentally" destroyed by a missile (that word accident keeps appearing in the narratives). After all the "Houthis" in Yemen (devout Shia Muslims) have already threatened to rocket Mecca (if you can believe that LOL). Anyway, such aggression by (((Iran))) or their proxy (((Hezbollah))) or (((Hamas))) etc would justify Israel expelling many Palestinians and annexing the West Bank etc. Who knows what nefarious plans have been laid? However, rest assured, this has been planned since before 9/11 but whatever happens the faithful will not be deceived....God will preserve a faithful remnant (both Jew and Gentile).
