WAR RUMBLINGS 1 – Syria, right now, is serving as the fulcrum of US-Russia relations. Moscow is determined to finish off the civil war in that country by ending – once and for all – the threat from ISIS and the Islamists. The US has had a history of using the Islamists to try and affect regime change through the ouster of President Assad. To that end, the Pentagon has had a history of supplying radical Islamist rebels – including indirectly ISIS – with arms in the struggle. President Trump began to reverse that policy and was pursuing a complete withdrawal. But now it looks like the administration has reversed the reversal. Zero Hedge reports: “The radical departure from Trump’s prior outspokenness against militarily pursuing Syrian regime change, both on the campaign trail and during his first year in the White House, reportedly involves ‘a new strategy for an indefinitely extended military, diplomatic and economic effort there, according to senior State Department officials.’
This even though one of the Pentagon’s main justifications for being on Syrian soil in the first place — the destruction of ISIS — has already essentially happened as the terror group now holds no significant territory and has been driven completely underground. But most worrisome about the Post report is that sources said to be close to White House policy planning on Syria suggest that Trump has made a commitment to pursuing regime change as a final goal.” The President now wants to see the Iranians and their proxies gone from Syria.[i]
All of this comes at a time when the Russians, about to make their final push on the last rebel enclave are warning US forces against interference and the American general on the ground there is rattling the saber right back. In addition, Russia just sent a giant armada through the English Channel on the way to the Mediterranean to sit within striking distance of both Israel and US positions in the Middle East. And all of this is going on while the Ruskies are conducting the largest military drill in 37 years, involving over 300,000 troops.[ii] Other than that, ‘So move along, Mrs McGillicuddy. Nothing to see here.’
WAR RUMBLINGS 2 – Talk about nothing to see! There’s nothing to see – because nothing was reported by America’s mainstream news outlets. Just last month, the Pentagon issued a report that addressed the intel that the Chinese were preparing multiple Pearl Harbor-style attacks against the United States. It is believed that the Chinese preparations were a response to Washington’s consistent confrontational posture vis-à-vis the South China Sea. China is in expansionist mode – but in need of resources to continue their build. Though intended to restore fair trade – (the US was getting raped by the trade policies in place – actions like the raise in tariffs have severely hampered Beijing’s ability to pursue its goals. The situation is somewhat analogous to Japan’s position before World Wars II. After examining the evidence, Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show concluded that “Chinese bombers are training for air strikes against the United State and/or their allied targets in the Pacific. According to a new Pentagon report that also details how Beijing is transforming its ground forces to ‘fight and win.’”[iii] Agence France-Presse, quoted from the Pentagon report. “‘Over the last three years, the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) has rapidly expanded its overwater bomber operating areas, gaining experience in critical maritime regions and likely training for strikes against US and allied targets,’ the document states, noting how China is pushing its operations out into the Pacific. In August 2017, six Chinese H-6K bombers flew through the Miyako Strait in the southwest of the Japanese islands, and then for the first time turned north to fly east of Okinawa, where 47,000 US troops are based. The PLA may demonstrate the ‘capability to strike US and allied forces and military bases in the western Pacific Ocean, including Guam.’”[iv] Dave Hodges and this newsletter has in the past covered the Chinese threat that exists through their training of forces in Central America and the placement of Chinese military assets within the United States at places like the Port of Long Beach, California, which is under Chinese control.
TOTAL CONTROL – Chinese leadership has an obsession. It is “informatization, automation and intlligentization.” And because of that they are one of the world leaders in total population surveillance and control. (I guess it’s good to be #1 in something….besides just making babies….at least male ones.) That’s why they expect to have 626 million surveillance cameras operating in just two short years. That system will feed info directly into what they’re calling a national “social credit system.” If you jay walk, or litter, or say something the government doesn’t like….you take a penalty. You can be blocked from taking a plane or a high-speed train. Or maybe, you’re prevented from buying property or sending your child to a private school. According to one high-ranking government official, the is designed so that “discredited people become bankrupt.” In other words, they are creating what the Economist called “the world’s first digital totalitarian state.” And don’t think it will stay in China.[v] Coming soon to a nation near you!
UK’S THOUGHT POLICE – Police authorities in Great Britain are now soliciting citizens to tattle on other citizens for saying bad things. Or even if you just think it’s a bad thing. Freedom of expression in the land which gave us the Magna Carta and served as the model for limited government that gave birth to the democratic-republican experiment that is the United States. The police of South Yorkshire first asked folks to report hate crimes. That includes actions or statements that are “motivated by prejudice or hostility (or perceived to be so).” [Really?!! Perceived to be so?!!] But it gets worse. In a se second tweet, the constabulary solicited the citizenry to report “non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person, or in writing.”[vi]
PUBLIC EDUCATION – OK, so we know that they’ve been steadily eroding the Christian influence of America’s public schools. In one West Virginian district, children were told to practice the shadada, the Islamic declaration of faith. “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” According to David Fiorazo, the lesson plan at Mountain Ridge Middle School “leads students to profess the socio-political religion of Islam as true and to lead them to think that Allah is God the Creator.” The curriculum contained anti-Christian thought. Students were required to read the Quran and practice “prayer poses.”[vii] But that’s almost boiler plate fare. Check out what’s brewing on the Left Coast.
The Natural News headline sets the stage for this story. “Public school teachers in Portland given ‘social justice’ education guides that praise Islam, communist revolutions and violent social justice groups.” So there you have it! That includes just about all the hate-America groups. The guide talks about proper use of gender pronouns. It instructs how best to celebrate Islamic holidays. It catalogues the “merits” of Communism. [I bet it doesn’t mention the 20 million killed by Stalin or the 45 million laid to rest by Chairman Mao. These guys make Hitler look just a little worse than a shoplifter.] It talks about how to use violence to effect “social change,”….like it’s a good thing. The guide is called the “Planning to Change the World Curriculum.” [How about the ‘Planning to Teach Justin Math Curriculum (So He’ll Really Learn It?’) No, I guess that would be asking too much!!] Well, perhaps you’re in need of some healthy purging in your life. So to motivate you, I’ll share some quotes right from the manual.
“This plan book is designed to help teachers translate their visions of a just education into concrete classroom activities. It is both a daily reminder of the importance of teaching for justice and a collection of tools to help you do just that…. This plan book was created to make that job just a little easier by helping you turn your daily lesson planning into strategies for teaching toward democracy, justice, freedom and peace.” In the process, they will be taught about the peacefulness of Islam and the joys of eco-feminism. [Quick Brianna, What’s 9×7? How many feminists does it take to save the planet? And why do we love Che Guevarra?] Yes Che Guevarra, the murderous, communist thug – and apparent paragon of American education – is pictured and quoted there. So are a number of Black Panthers. But wait! That’s not all, this edition of the guide, published by Rethinking Schools, comes with a special feature. 15 Everyday Ways to Affirm Trans and Gender Nonconforming (TGNC) Students. [What school does not need this?] “As we painfully recognize the hostility, intolerance, and lack of safety experienced daily by our TGNC young people, we wish to empower educators with everyday ways to create spaces of refuge for these students in our classrooms and schools, where they can instead experience authentic inclusion, recognition, and an embrace of their full humanity and identities.”[viii]
OOOOHWHEEOOUUHH PELOSI – This one is just for giggles….and what goes with that. Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House and current Democratic leader said this on at least two occasions, so she either actually believes it – or – there’s really something to it. And I don’t know which is scarier. It seems, just like Hillary before her, she has talked to dead American women involved in the political scene. For Hillary, it was Eleanor Roosevelt. For Nancy, it was a bunch of them. She had just been elected speaker and she was being congratulated by President Bush. Here’s the Nance in her own words. “I mean I’m, like I’m squeezed in in my chair. And I am thinking: What is this? And I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth. All of them. They were all in the chair, right there, with me. They were right there. I’ve never had that experience before or since. They were right there on the chair. And I could hear them say: At last we have a seat at the table.”
SATANISM’S PUBLIC MANIFESTATION – The Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art has announced that it will be holding two Black Masses on October 12th. The first one is already sold out. [That’s something that almost never happened when I was a Catholic altar boy back in the 1960’s.] “A Black Mass is a satanic ritual — the inversion of the traditional Latin Mass celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church.”[ix]
