Trump’s Hypocrisy on Cuba

Trump doesn’t have the guts to criticize Israel, so he’s all over Cuba like a cheap suit

By Richard Edmondson

“The deep state demands that I be a hypocrite, and so a hypocrite I will be.” — This appears to be the credo that Donald Trump, who promised to drain the swamp but never did, now lives by. The latest example? Cuba.

Hacking the Planet: The Climate Engineering Reality (must see video!)

A very extraordinary video on geoengineering, i.e. the spraying of heavy-metal particulates in our skies. I’ve written about this subject before (see here for instance), but the video provides graphic footage aimed particularly at skeptics, i.e. those inclined to dismiss it all as a “conspiracy theory.” All 43 minutes are packed with crucial, critical information, but the juicier stuff, regarding human health impacts and impacts to the environment, comes towards the end.

Written description from the GeoengineeringWatch website:

In the mid 1940’s global powers made the decision to intervene in Earth’s climate and life support systems without the knowledge or consent of populations. The weather makers tell us their programs are a form of mitigation for global warming, but is this the truth? Is climate engineering / solar radiation management helping to cool the planet? Or are the ongoing geoengineering operations only temporarily cooling some regions at the cost of further fueling the overall rapid unraveling of Earth’s climate and life support systems? What other covert agendas are being carried out? How dangerous is the highly toxic heavy metal fallout from these programs that is raining down through our breathable air column? “Hacking The Planet: The Climate Engineering Reality” is a condensed hard hitting 40+ minute climate engineering educational documentary. This informational video reveals shocking film footage of the ongoing atmospheric spraying operations in addition to covering the most fundamental facts about the covert global geoengineering / climate intervention programs. Answers to the most frequently asked climate engineering questions are also covered in this production. Will climate engineering save humanity from global warming? Or will man’s attempt to play God with the weather only ensure our common demise?

“We Want to Deescalate the Situation,” US Says One Day After Shooting Down Syrian Plane

It’s hard to know who is making policy in Washington these days. Did the decision to shoot down a Syrian plane come out of the White House? The Pentagon? The CIA? The State Department? Hard to say for sure, but White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claims the US is seeking a “deescalation” of the situation in Syria.

Tensions Escalate Over Shoot-down of Syrian Jet

The Russian Ministry of Defense is calling yesterday’s downing of a Syrian military plane “a cynical violation of Syria’s sovereignty” as well as “a deliberate default on their [the US Coalition’s] obligations under the memorandum on on preventing incidents and providing for safe flights during operations in Syria signed on October 20, 2015.”

Report: Oliver Stone’s Israel Remarks Censored By Stephen Colbert’s Late Show

[ Ed. note – The Duran has published a story saying that during an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Oliver Stone made a remark about Israel having far more influence over US elections than any supposed influence Russia may have exerted. It is of course a truthful statement, but it would be stunning to hear something like that ever spoken on American TV. And indeed, according to The Duran, the remark was censored out. This is particularly ironic, not to mention utterly hypocritical, considering that at one point in the interview Colbert made a sniping comment about Vladimir Putin supposedly suppressing freedom of the press in Russia.
