I am pleased to discuss the arduous legal complaint filed in California against former U.S. President Bush and his comrades.
The appeals court may set a punitive fine, or uphold the lower court’s ruling, is my gloomy forecast – but hope for more, if the discovery of official documents reveal hidden evidence…

Breaking: George W. Bush on Trial? Saleh v. Bush in California Court on Charges of “Crimes of Aggression” Against Iraq

Ninth Circuit Confirms Judges Who Will Hear Argument on Legality of Iraq War
By Witness Iraq Global Research, December 07, 2016
San Francisco, Calif. — Today the United States Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit confirmed that Circuit Judges Susan Graber and Andrew Hurwitz, as well as District Court Judge Richard Boulware (sitting by designation) will hear oral argument on December 12, 2016, in Saleh v. Bush.

Saleh v. Bush involves claims by an Iraqi woman, Sundus Shaker Saleh,  that former President George W. Bush and other high ranking Bush-era officials broke the law when they planned and waged the Iraq War.

Saleh alleges that former Bush Administration leaders committed the crime of aggression when they planned and executed the Iraq War, a war crime that was called the “supreme international crime” at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946.

Saleh is appealing the immunity provided to the Defendants by the district court in December 2014.

Is The U.S. Dept Of Homeland Security (DHS) Criminally Guilty Of Attempting To Crack Into Georgia’s Secure Election Database?

CRIME is Institutionalized

– Institutional Crime –
Do you remember our discussion about the BIG CRIMINAL LIST?
Or the event where all the judges from the entire California Court had to step down

You should be aware of the deception in the massive national campaign to secure the U.S. presidential selection con-game by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson during the height of the Russian fear mongering.
Remember the Aug. 15 call with state election officials, he offered states DHS services that would inspect voting systems for bugs and other hacker entryways. Earlier in the month, he also suggested the federal government label election systems as official U.S. critical infrastructure, like the power grid.

In what appears to be another case of criminal agencies or elements within government, the DHS is accused of attempting to break into the State of Georgia secured election database.

The Shariah Gold Standard Cometh: Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs)

The recent speech by Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, about exchanging U.S. Dollars for Gold and the Turkey Lira caught my attention. I immediately recalled the reports about Basel III requirements, currency wars, digital currency, the global reset, and the De-dollarization campaign.

Among conspiracy researchers and truth seekers the 1988 cover of the ECONOMIST magazine predicting changes to the world’s monetary system in 2018 can not be forgotten:
2018 Economist Mag_World currency Phoenix
Few in America know of these institutional activities that are implementing worldwide monetary changes, and the likely effects on national currency valuations.
The New Rules Have Gone Into Effect.
Recently the world has witnessed disasters on the Bolivar and Rupee currencies, and I expect other currencies will experience volatility in their valuations.

Below are reports from around the world about the banking gold standard, Capital Requirements, and Liquidity Standards.
Remember, your deposits into the banks are no longer yours, it immediately becomes property of the banks and the government. Please discuss and share this, because what is coming is no accident, it is Policy! ~Ron

Few appreciate that the launch of a Shari’ah gold or Islamic gold [6] standard signals a changing dynamic in the gold market. Gold bullion will be additionally appealing to Islamic banks due to Basel III rules that require banks own high liquidity and quality, low counter party risk assets such as physical gold in allocated and segregated storage [7].

Until now, no group as influential as the AAOIFI has issued guidelines stating that gold must be the underlying asset in all gold transactions as we suspect they will do shortly.

Whilst the likes of the COMEX gold market are able to grow to multiple times the size of the underlying physical market, with little impact on physical demand or price, this will no longer be case.

Jan Skoyles is a research executive at GoldCore, a gold investment platform and this is a version of an article that first appeared in the Khaleej Times [8], the UAE’s best selling English newspaper and highest circulated English language newspaper in the Gulf –zerohedge.com

A “Shariah compliant” product meets the requirements of Islamic law.

A “Shariah advisor is an independent Islamic trained scholar that advises Islamic institutions on the compliance of the products and services with the Islamic law.

Dubai Multi Commodities Center and Borsa Istanbul collaborate to develop international Shariah compliant precious metals platform

GLOBAL: Now that a Shariah standard on gold has been launched by AAOIFI and the World Gold Council (WCG), the UAE and Turkey wasted no time in leveraging on the new development with Dubai Multi Commodities Center (DMCC) and Borsa Istanbul signing an MoU to work toward establishing an international Shariah compliant precious metals platform. The MoU will extend the current scope of collaboration between the two entities as they look toward setting up a universal Shariah compliant gold exchange for Islamic markets and creating dedicated delivery centers for precious metals in both Dubai and Istanbul.

DMCC, for its part, will explore ways on how it could offer guidance and best practice to its counterpart, now that gold can now be used as a commodity to back Shariah-based financial products. The MoU builds upon DMCCC’s current scope of collaboration with Borsa Istanbul, and will seek to draw upon the capabilities of its Free Zone, DMCC Tradeflow platform and its Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange, and aims to connect a wide range of financial institutions and physical traders. Borsa İstanbul, on the other hand, offers both spot and futures trading platforms for precious metals such as gold, diamonds and precious stones, while gold futures contracts are also offered to the investors on Borsa İstanbul.

Ahmed Sulayem, DMCC’s executive chairman, commented that enhancing its partnership with Borsa Istanbul marks a natural evolution in developing the global markets, and improves cross-border efficiencies in the precious metals trade. “This MoU also reflects DMCC’s commitment to developing Shariah compliant market infrastructure to support the future growth of the Islamic economy,” Ahmed added.

This cooperation to establish a Shariah compliant precious metals platform is expected to further strengthen the position of Istanbul and Dubai in the global physical gold trade, aside from reinforcing the trade relations between the two nations, given that Turkey remains one of the UAE’s largest trading partners, with more than US$6.7 billion in annual bilateral trade in 2015. Earlier this month, the two entities agreed to initiate a single platform for the spot and futures trading and settlement of gold and other precious metals.

Trading platforms have seen an increase in Shariah compliant cross-border cooperation in recent times. Just in August this year, Bursa Malaysia and Indonesia Stock Exchange agreed to jointly develop both their Islamic capital markets, in an effort to broaden the usage and availability of Islamic liquidity and products. With the new Shariah standard on gold and its trading controls opening the floodgates to further gold investment in the Islamic finance universe, more collaborations between international market players are expected to come to the fore in the global commodities trading arena.


A new Shariah standard on gold issued by AAOIFI

The AAOIFI and the World Gold Council have vowed to create new gold-traded products and markets in Islamic finance, as the former launched a new Shariah standard to guide the industry in trading the precious metal. Traditionally, gold has been treated as a currency in Islamic finance which has confined its use to spot transactions, but fresh guidance from AAOIFI is expected to spawn a wave of product development in the industry, reported Reuters.

In May this year, it was reported that global gold demand reached 1,290 tonnes in the first quarter of 2016, a 21% increase compared to the same period in 2015, making it the second-largest quarter on record, according to the World Gold Council’s Gold Demand Trends report. This increase was driven by huge inflows into exchange-traded funds (ETFs), fueled by investor concerns regarding economic fragility and an uncertain financial landscape. In line with this, the new gold standard is believed to spur interest among industry players to develop gold-based products and consequently spark increase investment in gold and structured products and ETFs backed by gold.

In summary therefore, ETFs based on gold and the increased development of investment products would be welcome in the Islamic finance industry in general, but its growth and impact on the overall industry depends on the development of other regulatory and practice-related governance and transparency. What is most certain is that the demand for such new products is there and investing and saving in gold is a well-rooted culture and custom in the Middle East, Asia and other parts of Muslim societies, which in practical terms constitutes a good ground base for an industry to flourish and prosper.

However, industry stakeholders, together with other standard-setting bodies, will need to work more closely to develop an efficient ecosystem for this promising niche market.

Gold platforms rushing to market as new Shariah standard opens the floodgates to gold investments

GLOBAL: In less than two days since AAOIFI and the World Gold Council (WGC) released their long-awaited Shariah standard on gold, international platforms, including a fintech firm, have formally announced their plans to launch Shariah compliant gold solutions in a race to capture the individual and institutional wealth of increasingly affluent Muslim populations which for years have been hesitant to invest in the yellow metal due to complexities and lack of clarity over the asset class.

Newly-minted Kuala Lumpur-based fintech firm, HelloGold, for example, which was the first online gold platform to be endorsed as Shariah compliant by Amanie Advisors – the force behind the AAOIFI standard – confirmed that it is expanding its reach beyond Malaysia to include other ASEAN markets in the second half of 2017.

“For many in Asia, gold is a particularly good safe haven investment against foreign exchange risk and market shocks such as we have seen in 2016. Over the last 12 months, gold has risen by 17% against the Malaysian ringgit, 10% against the Thai baht, 9% against the Indonesian rupiah, 17% against the Philippine peso and 12% against the Singapore dollar,” explained Robin Lee, CEO of HelloGold and formerly CFO of WGC.

The fintech firm aims to democratize access to investments and savings by removing the cost hurdle to individual investors – offering customers the ability to buy, sell, save, send gold and use it as collateral from as low as RM1 (22.47 US cents).

In Ireland on the other hand, longtimer GoldCore has begun work on engineering a Muslim-friendly solution, with plans to bring it to market by the first quarter of 2017.

“For a number of years, we have been working on an institutional gold platform and indeed a Shariah compliant gold bullion solution for the institutional market,” said Stephen Flood, CEO of Gold Core, which has offices in the UK, the US and Ireland. “We look forward to launching our comprehensive Shariah compliant gold investment solution and offering it to qualifying Islamic financial institutions in 2017.”

Malaysia’s Sukuk Market: Riding high on private sector Sukuk issuance

With slightly more than a month to go before the end of the year, optimism that the Sukuk market will exceed RAM Ratings’s projection of approximately RM100-120 billion (equivalent to approximately US$23-28 billion based on the exchange rate of US$1 = RM4.3) (RAM expects RM100-120 billion of domestic Sukuk issuances this year as stated on the 23rd March 2016) is high. In the first 10 months of 2016, a record RM115 billion (US$26.7 billion) of Sukuk was issued, hitting RAM’s full-year projection for the local currency market.

Impetus for this year-on-year (y-o-y) growth came primarily from quasi-government (+163%) and corporate (+52%) Sukuk issuances. The underlying sectors were Islamic financial institutions (37% of total quasi-government and corporate issuances) tapping the Sukuk market to meet their capital requirements and infrastructure projects (31% of total quasi-government and corporate issuances) – a trend that dates back to 2014.

From total Islamic debt securities issued, government securities accounted for 34% while quasi-government and corporate issuances made up 25% and 41% respectively. In total, Shariah compliant securities constituted 55% (equivalent to RM115 billion) of the market’s total bond issuances of RM210.9 billion (US$49 billion). With the build-up in Sukuk issuance for the same period, outstanding Sukuk represented 57% (US$156.2 billion or RM671.7 billion) of the total bond market’s RM1.2 trillion (US$275 billion).

In October 2016, US dollar-denominated Malaysian Sukuk were included in the EMBI Global Diversified Index. Coupled with the visibility provided by the incorporation of Malaysia’s government investment issues (GII) into Barclay’s Global Aggregate Index in March 2015, Malaysian Sukuk issuances have gained significant recognition among international investors. This is underlined by the 198% y-o-y surge in foreign holdings of GII to US$7 billion as at the end of October 2016.

Malaysia’s economic pump-priming through infrastructure-led projects has been a boon to the Sukuk market and is likely to remain a key catalyst. Issuances by the quasi-government and corporate sectors are expected to continue playing a significant role in expanding the breadth and depth of the domestic Sukuk market.

Asian storms: The impact of economic turbulence on Islamic asset management

Some of the world’s fastest-growing economies are feeling the strain. Across Asia, currencies have tumbled, exports have weakened, inflation has risen and borrowing costs have shot up in tandem with a rising US dollar with an exodus in emerging market bonds and a wave of capital outflows. But is the news all bad, and how long will it last? LAUREN MCAUGHTRY looks at the landscape for Islamic asset management in the region, and discovers that a few bright spots remain on the horizon.

Turbulent times
The MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex Japan Index has fallen by 4.1% over the last three months. The S&P Pan Asia Shariah Index lost 5.65% over November alone. Emerging markets are taking a beating and Southeast Asia, which has survived well over the pressures of the past year, is finally feeling the consequences. The US election results brought a wave of concern to the region — as US interest rate fears rise, overseas investors have begun to offload Indonesian and Malaysian bonds, which has prompted (and exacerbated) a sell-off that has seen central banks scramble to protect their plummeting currencies.

The asset management industry has not been immune, and Asian funds have been hit badly by the latest events. “The Asian region has been weak since Donald Trump won the US presidential election,” confirmed Akmal Hassan, the managing director of Asian Islamic Investment Management (AIIMAN), to IFN. “The day after the election result were announced, we saw huge fund outflows (amounting close to US$30-40 billion) from emerging markets… back into developed markets.”

And the future remains uncertain. “Investing within the region is expected to remain challenging as uncertainties persist,” agreed David Ng, the chief investment officer of Affin Hwang Asset Management, speaking to IFN. “The vulnerability of the region against possible policy changes by the new US administration could lead to further volatility.”

Islamic prospects
Yet within these turbulent times, some Islamic funds are not only performing well but are seeing inflows into the market. AIIMAN’s top-performing fund is the Affin Hwang Aiiman Asia (ex Japan) Growth Fund — which registered a year-to-date growth of 8.76% as of the 6th December (according to Bloomberg) and has grown 2.6% over the past month alone.

And while some funds may have stumbled due to the recent headwinds (the Aberdeen Islamic Malaysia Equity Fund, for example, is down 4% over the past month and has grown just 1.22% over 2016), others are still flocking to the region, suggesting that investor appetite has not yet dissipated. Hong Kong-based Mirae Asset Management, for example, recently launched its first Shariah compliant product with the Mirae Asset Islamic Asia Sector Leader Equity Fund, targeting European customers and designed to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in Islamic equities across Asia.

So what are the pitfalls facing Islamic funds in the region today — and how can they avoid these issues to ensure performance for their investors?

Currency pressures
Currency pressures are of course the biggest concern — and the two biggest Islamic finance markets in the region have been the worst hit in the recent sell-off. Over the last three months, the Malaysian ringgit weakened by 7.2% against the US dollar while the Indonesian rupiah lost 3% in value over the same period as foreign investors flee the local bond markets as yields spike following Trump’s victory.

With an estimated 40% of Malaysian sovereign bonds and around 35% of Indonesian sovereign bonds owned by overseas investors, this has had a catastrophic impact on the market — and on bond and Sukuk funds. The CIMB Islamic Sukuk Fund has dropped by 1.6% over the past month (as of the 5th December) while the Manulife Dana Sukuk Fund and the Maybank Malaysia Sukuk Fund have both fallen 2.2% over the same period.

With currency reserves estimated at around US$100 billion compared to short-term external debt levels of US$128.2 billion (according to the latest IMF figures), Malaysia is one of the most vulnerable countries in the region to currency attacks and capital outflows, making investors even more wary.

And recent central bank moves to clamp down on currency speculation, including a (largely ignored) request to foreign banks to stop trading in ringgit offshore forwards, have failed to inspire confidence — spurring fears of new capital controls and a fixed exchange rate last seen almost 20 years ago during the Asian financial crisis in 1998 — while the low oil price and continued political scandals are also dragging on performance. Indonesia too has taken steps to intervene, with the central bank supporting the local currency and bond markets through more conventional methods to provide liquidity.

Immediate effect
The future does not look bright, with over US$200 billion pulled from global equity funds since the start of 2016 including US$100 billion in the third quarter alone (according to Morningstar and the FT) — the worst year for equity managers since 2011. In its latest results, emerging markets fund manager Aberdeen Asset Management noted GBP32.8 billion (US$41.75 billion) in net outflows for the year including GBP4.8 billion (US$6.11 billion) for the Asia Pacific region.

According to the latest fund flow report from MIDF Equity Research (as of the 5th December), foreign investors fled the Malaysian market last week with a selling spike of RM487.6 million (US$109.7 million) on the 30th November to reach a cumulate year-to-date exodus of RM2.2 billion (US$494.94 million). Indonesia also saw equity outflows last week of US$237.1 million. “The flow out of Asian equity continued on last week as global funds made a general retreat for the sixth week in a row,” confirmed MIDF. “Funds classified as ‘foreign’ were, in aggregate, net sellers of stocks in six out of the seven Asian exchanges.”

Optimistic impact
So what impact has this had on Asian asset managers?

“The recent ringgit depreciation changed our outlook heading into 2017, as prices of goods and services will be higher going forward. We have experienced this earlier this year and in that instance, the depreciation was short-lived. However, this time around, we anticipate that the currency depreciation will last a little longer,” warned Akmal.

But it is not all doom and gloom — and fund managers are surprisingly optimistic as to their long-term prospects. “As an Asia-focused asset manager, our Asian portfolios have continued to hold up well — which we attribute to risk management and the ability to reduce market exposure during market uncertainties,” Ng explained to IFN. “While the sell-down post-US election has dragged down stocks across the region, our higher cash levels have provided a decent buffer going into the correction. The higher liquidity that the funds held also provided opportunities to buy on weakness.”

And despite the foreign exodus, the market is supported by local investors who retain a regional preference. “We still think there is a general home bias when it comes to investment where familiarity wins out,” said Ng. “We think that investment portfolios remain tilted toward the domestic and Asian region, with a tactical allocation into other selective markets.”

“The worst-performing sectors this year have been the telecommunications and technology sectors, as these experience heavy price competition. Moreover, the performance in the technology sector was dampened with production cuts. We saw performance impacted due to fund outflows from large cap stocks, while mid-cap space suffered as a result of poor results season recently. The construction sector, utilities and exports remain the key performance drivers in our portfolios,” added Akmal. “As it stands, Malaysia and the wider emerging markets region do not benefit from US dollar appreciation. Having said that, there are opportunities for companies in the emerging markets that have a large manufacturing base to have extra gains from the appreciation… Demands for Asian assets remain good as Asian companies continue to offer growth as well as decent dividend yields.”

Under pressure
Another silver lining is the recent OPEC deal to reduce oil production, which pushed up most emerging Asian currencies last week and should support oil exporters such as Malaysia although the ringgit continues to underperform the rupiah, suggesting that the general concern has spread beyond oil.

“We expect a slower growth environment for a prolonged period of time,” agreed Akmal. “Growth in Malaysia will depend on its currency and the global oil price. The recent decision from OPEC to reduce production has helped improved oil prices by 7% to US$50 per barrel, which will help Malaysia in its oil exports. Additionally, corporates in Malaysia stand to gain if the ringgit holds steady at the current levels.”

But although funds have put up a good fight, the continued headwinds are inevitably affecting their performance. “Islamic equities on the domestic front have been under pressure this year,” warned Ng. “The generally smaller investment universe has made it challenging for fund managers, leaving most funds within the category with weaker performance compared to conventional peers. The regional Islamic funds have performed relatively better, given the larger and more diversified universe that [they are] able to participate in. The performance of our regional equity funds have been comparable, and our regional Islamic equity fund is within our top five performing equity funds.”
Akmal agreed. “Performance for Islamic funds for 2016 so far has been weak due to poor market conditions, which also affected the conventional funds. Performances of Islamic funds are also influenced by geographical exposure, ie Malaysia-centric funds underperformed the regional funds.”

An Asian growth story
So what can we expect for the future? Will the continued pressures push down performance, or will Asia remain a bright spot for Islamic asset management?

Jad Shams, the head of MENA at Mirae Asset Global Investments, is bullish on the region’s growth prospects. “No diversified portfolio investor, whether institutional or retail, can afford to be absent the Asian growth story,” he insisted to IFN. “Asia represents the bulk of hard economic assets in the world, driven mainly by its young and aspirational demographics, rapid GDP growth and consumption behavior. Compared to developed markets, Asia’s capital markets are much smaller although Asia owns most real economic assets in the world today. This gap will bridge over time.”

Shams suggests that despite the headwinds, asset management in the region will be supported by continued interest from overseas, especially from GCC investors keen to take a long-term view. “Middle East sovereign wealth funds were among the first international investors in Asia (some with experience going as far back as the 1950s), and they enjoy among the largest foreign investor quotas in India, China, and other Asian markets. So too have other investor segments been investing in Asia for decades. The Middle East is part of Asia and knows Asia’s potential. There will always be demand for Asian exposure by Middle East investors, and many institutions maintain offices with [a] direct presence in Asia, a trend in fact on the rise today.”

Rahul Chadha, the co-chief investment officer at Mirae Asset Global Investments in Hong Kong and the manager of the new Shariah compliant fund, agrees with this perspective. “We still see Asian equities as attractive,” he told IFN. “From the macro fundamental point of view, Asian countries are generally a lot stronger than they were in 1997 (Asian financial crisis), 2007 (global financial crisis) and 2013 (Taper tantrum) in terms of foreign exchange reserves and current account balance. Asian currencies are now very competitive at multi-year low levels versus the US dollar.”

Looking ahead
The outcome of the US election may have come as a surprise to many, but in fact its drivers (and its outcome) are being echoed across the world, with the dissatisfaction of the voting public in weak growth, limited jobs, low wages and widening inequality finding expression in the election of unconventional leaders — such as Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, Narendra Modi in India and Joko Widodo (popularly known as Jokowi) in Indonesia. The trend started before Trump, and his election has only highlighted the gravity of these issues. So what does this mean for investors, and what can we expect for the coming year?
“The impact of US president-elect Trump’s victory on performance will ultimately boil down to fund flows, valuations and growth. Foreign funds have mostly exited Malaysia and emerging markets for now, and will return once the currency is undervalued and growth returns,” warned Akmal. “2016 has been a washout year for many companies in Malaysia. This led to lower or flat earnings growth, which then led to expensive valuations. 2017 will start off from a low base and will give the market a chance to reset expectations and grow earnings.”

Globalists’ Script: A.I. and Robots To Replace Most Workers in nwo economy

Tesla said


“One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future”… –Sir Arthur C. Clarke

Okay, I will sketch out a brief about the globalists’ agenda that you should already be familiar with. The long term destruction of the “Middle-Class” is no longer a secret nor a “conspiracy theory”.
What prompted me to discuss this again was the recent decision by Mark Carney to promote the script as the governor of England’s Central Bank.
The globalists are telling the public what their plans are, but their narrative is deceptive.

UK: “Robots to steal 15million of your jobs”

On 06 Dec 2016 Mail Online UK published “Robots To Steal 15 Million Jobs Says Bank Chief: Doom-Laden Carney Warns Middle Class Will Be Hollowed Out By New Technology” by HUGO DUNCAN Deputy Finance Editor For The Daily Mail.
See: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4003756/Robots-steal-15m-jobs-says-bank-chief-Doom-laden-Carney-warns-middle-classes-hollowed-new-technology.html

elite globalists meet in Davos
Earlier this year the World Economic Forum (WEF) had this robotic/A.I. agenda as their theme, they called it the 4th industrial revolution, and called for the help of all professional classes to embrace it.

We now know that civilization is scripted, and this script is being rolled out same as the old scripts were, except more of the populous are aware of it this time.
It is no coincidence that the mass media have published countless stories about A.I. and the governments are issuing policies and funding for A.I. projects.
Consider NASA, CERN, and Quantum Computers

The Bankers have done their part with a three decade long trend of cheaper capital loans for corporate-government use. See: http://www.businessinsider.com/us-treasury-yields-at-historic-lows-2014-11
If you spend some time looking into the details from the long term treasury yield trend you will discover that labor wage can not compete with cheaper capital investing in digital labor, slave-bots and automatons.
Replacing labor is not an accident, it is policy.
The desirable trend with income rising with Gross Domestic Product no longer exist:

[The Blue line is “Real GDP“, and the Red line is “Real Median Household Income“.]

In other words the capital is almost free for mega corporations to follow the global-script for expensive projects, manufacture the new technology, and develop the emerging market regions that the global-script calls for; while simultaneously, poverty is on the rise and living standards decline.
Tenth of 1% are the elite globalist designing the new world order
The script calls for corporate-governments to replace human labor with digital labor, and digital currency is a key component in a cashless society.

Recall some of the previous globalists’ scripts:
The international monetary system, colonialism, compulsory education, the Space Age, then the Information/Computer Age, globalization, and now it is the A.I./Robotic Age (we should include geoengineering, genetic manipulation, and cloning too)…

Globalists Launch Fake News Campaign Within Pizza Gate, Social Media and Populist Movements

con (game) Troll (paid) ed (edited or censored truth) opposition. Beware of fakes and deception...
BEWARE of the deception within #pizzagate.
Double agents, disinformation, and counter intelligence are real, and they can be deployed in the alternative (social) media over the internet.

Yeah, there is much to investigate, but physical evidence is required to break a criminal case wide open.
I  encourage everyone to research and remain fact based in their reporting, rather than yielding to emotional outbursts and threats.
Do not accept anything without thoroughly investigating it for possible deception and half-truths.
Yes, the ruling class has esoteric knowledge, human ritual sacrifice, pedophilia, sex rings, human trafficking, drug & money laundering, and many more horrific secrets.
But forefront is their deception within the control system, always remember there is a element of deception.
Paid Trolls, propaganda, double agents, fake friends, fake watchdog & charity organizations, controlled opposition and many forms of deception are deployed against the public.

Current Events Reveal:
NEWS is a mental minefield.
Have you heard of S.W.S.?
Sentient World Simulation is the worldwide mass surveillance data input for a Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) computer simulation to predict mass human behaviour.
We have discussed human experimentation, scripted civilization and social engineering many times, this is but another puzzle piece.

Beware, the state sponsored, corporate controlled mass media has launched another covert operation, their FAKE NEWS campaign!
Through disguises, agent provocateurs, internet censorship and by attacking free speech the globalists seek tighter control.

My response is simple, Unplug, and Boycott corporate-government control.
The two short videos below are very informative and revealing. ~Ron

Increased Geopolitical Chatter For War Suggests False Flags or Emergency To Justify Military Response

False Flag: So Common … There’s a Name for It

Worldwide Bad Economic News continues with the systemic banking crisis.
Venezuela’s currency has become virtually worthless.
“In just two months, the bolivar plummeted 50% in value after dropping beneath the psychological 2000 level for the first time.” – Martin Armstrong.
And according to Fortune: The Indian Rupee Has Found Itself in a Whole New Kind of Mess. In their currency crisis the Indian rupee fell to a record low, pressured by the U.S. dollar, capital outflows … the country was mired in its worst currency crisis in more than two decades.

Beginning in December 2016, Kiev threatens to launch missiles near Crimea and breaching the Russian airspace
Russian government sent a warning to Kiev against conducting such drills near Crimea.

The central planners don’t want the mass public to blame them along with the banksters for the worldwide economic crisis, how bout a convenient war, or terrorist attack, or international emergency?

Ukraine/NATO vs Russian Federation

Going Out With a Bang: Here’s Why Kiev Keeps Provoking Russia
3 days ago … Earlier, Kiev announced that they would be holding missile-firing … The drills will extend into Russia’s civil airspace and have been deemed a threat to flight safety. … “Ukraine is violating basic principles of civil aviation”…

Russia issues stark warning to Ukraine for proposed missile launch above annexed Crimea
TENSIONS in eastern Europe continue to mount after the Ukrainian military looks set to fire missiles into Russian airspace near the Crimea – a move which has been condemned by the Kremlin.

Russia’s air transport agency accused Ukraine of overstepping diplomatic boundaries after it decided to hold military exercises above Crimean territorial waters in the Black Sea.

“In violation of all international agreements, Ukraine unilaterally decided to hold missile firing exercises in Russia’s sovereign airspace near Simferopol.”

Russian spokesman Sergei Izvolsky issued a warning declaring the decision a violation of “basic principles of civil aviation” that require coordination to close airspace with bordering countries.

The defence ministry for the former Soviet nations slammed the plans, branding them illegal and issuing a note of protest of Ukraine’s defence staff.

Turkey/NATO vs Syria:

West threatens Russia over Syrian Army advance in Aleppo

Western countries are urging to impose sanctions against Russia after 80,000 civilians were liberated in Syria’s Aleppo, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said on Tuesday.  He recalled that, over the past 24 hours, the Syrian army had been able to liberate from militants almost half of eastern Aleppo where 80,000 civilians reside. –almasdarnews.com

Russia says Syrian army has made big breakthrough in Aleppo
White House warns Syria, Russia

Turkey calls on U.S., allies to reconsider Syria no-fly zone
Addressing a NATO parliamentary assembly in Istanbul, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan again criticized allies’ reliance on Syrian Kurdish fighters to battle IS.

U.S. House pass Syria no-fly zone bill:

“Late in the day, on Nov. 15, one week after the U.S. elections, the lame-duck Congress convened in special session with normal rules suspended so the House could pass House Resolution 5732, the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act” calling for intensifying the already harsh sanctions on Syria, assessing the imposition of a “no fly zone” inside Syria (to prevent the Syrian government from flying) and escalating efforts to press criminal charges against Syrian officials…
Most strikingly, the resolution calls for evaluating and developing plans for the United States to impose a “no fly zone” inside Syria, a sovereign nation, an act of war that also would violate international law as an act of aggression. It also could put the U.S. military in the position of shooting down Russian aircraft.”

The suspension of rules procedure is supposed to be used for “non-controversial” bills such as naming Post Offices, but this small group of lawmakers used it to pass a drastically important bill. The blatant abuse of power shows the desperation in the neocon ranks.

3 days ago … Media Silent as House Passes Resolution for Syrian No-Fly Zone

Bombshell Secret Documents Show Monsanto Knew About Glyphosate Cancer Link Over 35 Years Ago

By Organic and Healthy

Monsanto have come under more pressure recently after the WHO defined the main ingredient in their popular weedkiller ‘Roundup’ as a ‘probably [probable] human carcinogen’.


Dr. Anthony Samsel

They are still trying to pick up the pieces from the PR disaster, but it turns out Monsanto may have been aware of the link between glyphosate and cancer for up 35 years.

Research Scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel has studies [studied] the effects on glyphosate on the human body for years, and has revealed the harmfulness of its nature. He has worked with a Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who released the warning that as many as half of all US children could be autistic by 2025 (in large part due to glyphosate exposure).

Samsel was recently able to get a look inside a file, sealed away since 1981 as a “Trade Secret” at the request of the Monsanto Company due to his field of study, and although he is not allowed to reveal the file to anyone, he is allowed to talk his thoughts on what he found, that is what might be a massive cancer cover-up that has been going on for decades.

Journalist Tony Mitra interviews Samsel in the video below about what he found. He talks of shocking evidence that showed “significant incidences of cell tumors of the tests and tumor growth in multiple organs and tissues” in lab animals.

He talks about evidence that glyphosate enters bone marrow almost immediately, which prevents the formation of new cells in living organisms.

Samsel also highlights a higher incidence of adenomas (benign tumors) and carcinomas (cancerous tumors that begin in outer tissues) is [in] almost every single case.

In the video he says how he believes glyphosate should be considered an “unequivocal” carcinogen, rather than a “probable” one.

Watch the video and hear what Samsel has to say about the secret file:

Blacklisted: Mainstream Media Is Fake News and Propaganda

Mass Deception Tentacles everywhere
Among the most influential deceivers are institutions such as government, and mega-corporations that control mass media and entertainment.
It’s Never too late to Unplug.

– Psychological Warfare –
Programing and manipulating public opinion is a major worldwide psyop and “conditioning” to accept authority and cultural programming.

“One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future”… –Sir Arthur C. Clarke

When you peel back the flowery rhetoric from their public relations professionals you see cultural engineering and a engineered (scripted) path for civilization far into the future.

As truth seekers have increased their information sharing, many forecasted the establishment’s massive retaliation, recall the alert: Governments Mobilizing Disinformation Warriors.
Truth Seekers beware: the institutions are now circulating blacklists, as we and many others predicted they would.
I will include the blacklisted found as of 26 Nov 2016, the “blacklists” may obviously expand to include many more in the months ahead.
Is this an attempt at McCarthyism? ~Ron


PropOrNot produced this List:

Via zerohedge.com: “The report from PropOrNot, [8] provided to the Post, identifies more than 200 websites that routinely pushed Russian propaganda to at least 15 million Americans, and found that false stories pushed on Facebook were viewed more than 213 million times. You may be surprised by some of the sites on the list (it seems even satirical fakes news sites are propagandists too)…”
