Israel has been spraying Palestinian crops in Gaza with herbicides to damage the vegetation since 2014. Officially, the crop dusting is only done on the Israeli side of the border fence, but Palestinian farmers and the Red Cross testified that the damage can be seen deep inside Palestine. Glyphosate is the main herbicide that is used, which can stay in the soil for months or even years, and may have negative health effects.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) found zero evidence that sarin nerve gas was used in an attack reported by the dubious al-Qaeda-linked White Helmets. The US rained airstrikes on Syria following the disputed event, which nearly led to war with Russia. Trump has authorized $6.6 million to fund the White Helmets.
Rand Paul says that Congress seeks to amend the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) by handing over their power to declare war to the president. Moreover, Congress could only disapprove of war, which turns the Constitution on its head! Even worse, any resolution of disapproval could be vetoed, meaning two thirds of Congress would need to disapprove of a war, rather than a majority to approve of one.
Israel: Parliament passed a law allowing the prime minister and defense minister to decide alone whether the nation will go to war. This puts Netanyahu firmly in the driver’s seat. If Netanyahu declares war, it is certain that the US will back Israel – which means that Netanyahu now can bring America into war. In a video recorded a number of years ago, Netanyahu says that Israel has 80% support from Americans and that America can easily be maneuvered.
The US launched airstrikes against Syria before the independent Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was able to investigate the gas attack that served as the excuse for military action, even though General Mattis said that they wanted the report to show whether a gas attack had occurred. Russia condemned the strikes as an attack on a sovereign nation and is calling for an emergency meeting at the UN.
Tucker Carlson lambasted war hawks on the right and left who agree that the US must go to war and overthrow Syrian President Assad, based on a viral video depicting people suffering from a poison gas attack that offers no real proof against Assad. He points out that US regime change in Libya and Afghanistan have been total failures and have cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars, and these countries should be made whole again before toppling another regime.
Stefan Molyneux explains how the US government’s addiction to spending now can only be stopped through collapse followed by war. This is a brilliant overview of history and human nature as they relate to the economic collapse of unrestrained governments. There is no way to adequately summarize this presentation except to say that it is loaded with hard data and sound logic that leads to the conclusion that the world is headed inexorably into economic collapse and war. Molyneux’s analysis may be wrong, but it should not be dismissed as impossible. [Well worth watching in its entirety.]
This three-part video may be the most controversial video we have ever featured. Predictably, defenders of the Israeli state will challenge the portrayal of Israel as an aggressor. We are publishing this, not as a condemnation of Israel’s foreign policy, but because the commentator, Jake Morphonios, has been incredibly accurate with predictions of events in the Middle East. Now he is saying the aggressive foreign policy of Israel, the Saudis, and the US acting together is designed to escalate into a full-blown World War that will involve Russia, China, and much of the rest of the world. In view of Jakes’s amazing record of accurate predictions, we believe it would be foolish to ignore him.
A new chemical attack against Syrian citizens has been blamed on Syrian President Assad. Predictably, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is blaming Assad and calling for war before an independent investigation of the event can be conducted. It is highly suspicious that the medics at the scene of the supposed gas attack are the ‘White Helmets’ who are linked to al Qaeda and who previously have been exposed staging fake attacks and providing actors to play the role of victims.
US General Michael Flynn officially put Iran on notice after Houthi rebels from Yemen attacked a Saudi Arabian naval ship. He blamed Iran for the attack because it previously backed the Houthis. General Flynn did not mention that Saudi Arabia has been attacking Yemen since 2015. In a separate event, Iran tested several ballistic missiles that the US says is in violation of the UN nuclear agreement.
