Global Elite Agitating for War Against Russia

Insane bill in Senate will ultimately result in nuclear destruction
Global Elite Agitating for War Against Russia

Victoria Nuland — who acted as the front person for the State Department’s coup in Kiev — bluntly expressed the opinion of the United States toward the European Union back in February.
Nuland employed a choice expletive when she dismissed the glacial movement of EU apparatchiks and their apparent political paralysis in response to the State Department’s covert effort to install a cooperative regime in Ukraine.
The MH17 downing was engineered to move the EU and public consensus in the direction of open confrontation with Russia. The EU does not want to appear indifferent and lackadaisical to the exploitatively propagandized tragedy, so it will lend its support for a new round of sanctions and, most importantly, the neocon introduced Senate bill 2277, the so-called “Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014” more appropriately dubbed the World War III bill.
The legislation was introduced by Sen. Bob Corker, who is slated to become the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee if Republicans take control of that house in November.
If passed the Corker bill will declare Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine “major non-NATO allies” and move NATO troops and equipment into the former Soviet republics of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. It will put an ABM system on the fast track in Eastern Europe and step up military and intelligence assistance to Ukrainian forces fighting against separatists in Donbass and elsewhere in Eastern Ukraine.
Other suggestions arising from Congress include adding Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Finland, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Sweden to NATO.
The Corker bill will encourage the color revolution crowd to subvert the Russian Federation. “S. 2277 would direct the secretary of state to intensify efforts to strengthen democratic institutions inside the Russian Federation, e.g., subvert Vladimir Putin’s government, looking toward regime change,” writes Patrick Buchanan.
Congress and establishment media blame Russia for MH17 downing without evidence.
“The U.S. directive to the State Department to work with NGOs in Russia, blatant intervention in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation, would be answered with a general expulsion of these agencies from Moscow,” Buchanan adds.
In 2012 Russia booted the premier color revolution organization – the U.S. Agency for International Development – out of the country. The State Department’s USAID, writes Eva Golinger, “is the principal entity that promotes the economic and strategic interests of the US across the globe as part of counterinsurgency operations… Wherever a coup d’etat, a colored revolution or a regime change favorable to US interests occurs, USAID and its flow of dollars is there.”
Corker and the neocon Republicans – including Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, and others who co-sponsored S. 2277 – are looking to push a reluctant EU into a war posture with its trading partner.

“Most Europeans have little stomach for confronting Russia,” writes Doug Bandow for Forbes. “Economic ties with Moscow are profitable, there is no treaty obligation to Ukraine, and no alliance member desires war. So Washington has taken the lead against Moscow even though America has little at stake in Russia’s misbehavior.”
“Efforts to expand NATO are strikingly misguided. Traditional military alliances were created to advance a nation’s security. They were not intended to act as clubs for international business, associations for shared values, or tools for political integration. Military alliances were supposed to prevent and win wars. During the Cold War the U.S. established the alliance to protect the war-ravaged European states from America’s hegemonic adversary, the Soviet Union, and its satellite-allies.”
NATO has morphed from a post-war relic ostensibly designed to protect Europe into a belligerent alliance aligned against the Russian Federation. It works not only to destroy its economic relationship with Western Europe, but foment regime change within its borders.
“Western elites desire to loot Russia, a juicy prize, and there stands Putin in the way. The solution is to get rid of him like they got rid of President Yanukovich in Ukraine,” writes Paul Craig Roberts.
The last time a spat in Eastern Europe turned excessively violent, 65,000,000 people died and set the stage for the death of 85,000,000 a few years later. In total, during the 20th century, an excess of 250,000,000 people were killed by government.
A repeat of a similar situation will not result in a conventional war, but a nuclear one. “We have 450 active ICBMs, but because of geographical constraints, they can really only be used to attack Russia,” writes Eugene K. Chow.
The United States has a total inventory of 4,650 nuclear weapons, including nearly 2,000 actively deployed warheads, and Russia has about the same, Chow explains.
Nuclear weapons, like all weapons, were invented to be used and gain superiority and dominance over an enemy. “The crossbow, the dreadnought, poison gas, the tank, the landmine, chemical weapons, napalm, the B-29, the drone,” all of these weapons have been used, writes Tom Engelhardt, and some of them still are.
Recently a senior adviser to Vladimir Putin said the U.S. plans a nuclear first strike on Russia. Paul Craig Roberts insists the placement of ABM systems in Eastern Europe are intended to intercept Russian missiles after a first strike.
“The Western elites and governments are not merely totally corrupt, they are insane. As I have previously written, don’t expect to live much longer,” Roberts warns.


Feds Ship Illegals Across U.S. On Trips Twice the Distance to Central America

After illegal aliens from Central America are captured after traveling 1,500 miles to reach the United States, the federal government is shipping them over 3,000 miles across the country to various shelters before finally releasing them onto the streets.
In one typical example, two teenagers from Honduras travelled roughly 1,500 miles to McAllen, Texas, before being caught by U.S. officials, who then placed them on taxpayer-funded flights from Texas to Arizona, Arizona to Oklahoma and then back to Arizona, a trip twice the distance of their original journey to America.
“Finally, after three flights, numerous van rides to and from shelters and approximately three weeks and thousands of miles, the girls were released from federal custody,” reported Manuel Roig-Franzia with the Washington Post. “They are living with their parents in Phoenix and awaiting a court appearance to determine whether they can remain in the United States.”
But 90% of them never show up to their court appearance and are rarely – if ever – prosecuted for failure to appear, meaning that the American taxpayer is essentially paying for the travel expenses of illegal aliens settling in the U.S. as part of the de facto amnesty program enacted by the Obama administration.
“Even if they did show up to their court date, what we’re going to start seeing is what we call the ‘anchor babies’ because these court dates are being set from what I understand so far down the road that these people are going to come here, settle in, some of them are going to have children, and those citizens are now United States citizens,” Stu Harris of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 told Infowars. “How is a judge going to deport these people if they have a United States citizen as a child?”And this surge of illegal immigrants “will continue to be something of a magnitude unlike anything we have ever seen,” according to Justice Department official Lauren Alder Reid who spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.It is also interesting to note that these illegals are flying far more frequently than the majority of Americans paying for their trips.“More than 85 percent of the public flies infrequently if at all,” reported Dalia Sussman with ABC News. “More than seven in 10 can be described as infrequent fliers, flying once or twice a year or less; and 14 percent have never flown.”“Another 14 percent fly at least once every few months.”

A survey of voter rolls shows record-low voter turnout in 15 of the first 25 statewide primaries for this midterm election.
The non-profit, non-partisan Center for the Study of the American Electorate at American University’s School of Public Affairs reported only 14.8 percent of eligible voters cast ballots in the first 25 state primaries, down from 18.3 percent in the 2010 midterm elections.
That’s about 18.2 million ballots from a pool of some 122.8 million eligible voters.
According to the CSAE, Democratic turnout sas fallen more dramatically than Republican turnout, with Dems down 29 percent from 8.7 percent in 2010 to 6.1 percent in 2014. The GOP’s decline wasn’t as drastic, dropping from 9.6 percent to 8.2 percent.
