THE CIA AND AMERICA’S PRESIDENTS

Many people still think of the CIA as an agency designed to help American presidents make informed decisions about matters outside the United States. That was the basis for President Truman’s signing the legislation which created the agency, and indeed it does serve that role, generally rather inadequately, but it has become something far beyond that.

Information is certainly not something to which any reasonable person objects, but the CIA has two houses under its roof, and it is the operational side of the CIA which gives it a world-wide bad reputation.

The Story Behind the Miranda Rights

Most people have heard some version of this phrase, even if it was just on one of the many procedural dramas on television, though some may have more hands-on experience with it. Some of those people will recognize this phrase as the “Miranda Rights” which police officers must “read” to suspects before being allowed to interrogate them. What most people don’t know is that the person to thank for this requirement was a career criminal and convicted rapist.

Saudi Arabia Says It Has "Material Evidence" Tying Iran To Aramco Attack

Saudi Arabia revealed yesterday that, contrary to its initial estimates, Aramco should be able to restore oil production to 100% capacity by the end of the month. And on Wednesday morning, the kingdom's Defense Ministry said it was planning a press conference to present "material evidence" purportedly linking Tehran to the unprecedented attack on the Kingdom's oil infrastructure.

The country's defense ministry will hold a news conference later in the day laying out new evidence. This follows reports from the US claiming that the roughly 20 missiles and drones used in the attack had been traced back to a 'launch site' in southern Iran.

Tehran has denied involvement in the Sept. 14 attacks, while the Houthi rebels in nearby Yemen have claimed credit. But Washington and Riyadh have adamantly blamed Iran, whom they have blamed for several 'attacks' in the region since the start of the year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time, no matter the administration, I see people from that administration fly off to any destination, as are Mike Pompeo, and other US officials, who remain unnamed, to add "gravitas" to a set of charges apt to bring a third nation a bouquet of lead and depleted uranium , I get very, very nervous.

So, Secretary of State Pompeo, a word, please; with all the wars in which the US Military is enmeshed, those we know about, and those we do not really know about, the people of this country do not want to see our military enmeshed in yet another war with which to placate Israel, which could well go "mammary glands vertical" yet again.

And sir, just in case you are suffering, as do many in the Bowels of Power in DC, from that horrific illness called SMD, "Selective Memory Disorder", I would like to remind you very gently, about a statement a Russian diplomat made toward the end of this June: IRAN WILL NOT BE ALONE, IF THE US ATTACKS

Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, made this statement at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

Secretary of State Pompeo, I would almost wager a bet that this man doesn't even fart without Vlad Putin's permission; so you can bet real money, that what he said was a direct statement from Russia's President Putin.

War with Russia over Iran?!? Sir, I would like to hope (and pray), that this is precisely NOT where this administration is taking us, but it sure as hell looks like it.

Unless President Trump suspends the Constitution and Bill of Rights and declares Martial Law, it will be an election killer, if an election will be held at all in 2020, and will smartly assist the Delirious Dementocrats to recover brilliantly from their "Withering Wednesday" moment, created today, when mega-Demo Contributor, Ed Buck, was arrested by the police.

Create war?!? Lose the 2020 election; find another way to prevent Saudi Arabia from getting hit and hurt with allegedly "primitive" weapons?!? Trump still has the chance to win.

It is, sir, just that simple.,

You are welcome, Mr. Secretary.

Prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck is ARRESTED for running a drug den and 'being a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction' after a third man overdosed in his California apartment

Buck was charged on Tuesday with a felony count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house.

California prosecutors are asking that Buck, a 'violent, dangerous sexual predator,' be held on $4million bail.

Prosecutors allege Buck provided methamphetamine that led to two overdose deaths.

Last Wednesday, another man overdosed on methamphetamine provided by Buck, though he survived, authorities have alleged.

Buck has been photographed with powerful Democrats including former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former Governor Jerry Brown.

Last week, a black man was photographed entering Buck's West Hollywood apartment despite the fact that two men died there of an overdose
It is unclear if the man is the same individual who overdosed on methamphetamine last Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, the ashtrays at DNC headquarters are going to be airborne tonight!!!! One has to imagine that the "methdeaths" of which Buck is accused, are only a very sad, but relatively minor, part of the whole, sordid story here.

Most likely, Tom Perez, the leader of the DNC at the moment, is in his sanctum sanctorum, with the doors locked from the inside, methodically going through those crisis management firms he has on speed dial, trying to figure out how to stop this now, without ripping apart the very fabric holding the monied of the DNC together.

One also has to wonder now how he may be feeling about "edging out" one of the most moral, intelligent women who wanted to be President in his Party's arsenal of likely candidates, and of course, that would have been Tulsi Gabbard, a Samoan-American and a Vet who had seen combat.

I swear, I could almost feel sorry for Perez BUT NOT QUITE, on the occasion of his Party's "Withering Wednesday"

It will be interesting to see if Buck is "Epsteined" rather quickly, as he most probably knows the names, places, and individual perversions of many of those in Epstein's voluminous lists.

Beijing, Moscow can balance negative impact from US — Chinese experts

In pundits' thinking, the damage Washington had done to the global economy was particularly affecting the United States’ allies.

BEIJING, September 18. /TASS/. China and Russia have been successfully acting as protectors of global security amid the failure of the United States’ foreign policy, particularly in relation to Afghanistan, said Chinese experts interviewed by the Global Times newspaper.

"After the collapse of peace talks between the US and the Taliban, a Taliban delegation met with Russian officials in Moscow, and China is also maintaining communications with relevant forces in Afghanistan. This is proof that China and Russia are all contributing to regional peace, while the US is failing," said Yang Jin, an associate research fellow at the department of East European, Russian and Central Asian Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Russia refuses to play musical chairs with America’s debt, continues to dump US Treasuries

Moscow has continued to sell off US Treasury securities, cutting its stockpile by $2.35 billion in July, according to the latest US Department of the Treasury data released on Tuesday.
Russia’s holdings of US state debt amounted to $8.5 billion in July, with long-term US Treasury securities standing at $6.2 billion and short-term at $2.2 billion. In June, Russian investment in Treasury bills was around $10.8 billion.

Questions, Not Answers Surround U.S. Push to War with Iran

Moscow has had its fill of Netanyahu. He’s openly mocking Trump at international forums, first offering to sell the U.S. Russia’s hypersonic missiles at the G-20 and then offering to sell S-400 missile defense systems to the Saudis to protect their people from outside actors.
All with tongue firmly implanted in cheek, but like with all good comedy a core of undeniable truth.
Things look bad for the alliance between the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia, when your opponents are laughing at you openly. In that moment Putin exposed that the emperor truly was standing naked in front of the world.

‘My AR is Ready’

Last week, a political party of violence peddling Bolsheviks held a debate involving candidates who wish to be anointed the next American Emperor. One candidate by the name of Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (known to Real Texans and Real Mexicans as The Fake Mexican) adamantly announced his intentions to confiscate the firearms of peaceful American subjects.

Not surprisingly, this assertion brought a rousing response from those who would object to such a criminal action. One of those objecting was Texas State Rep. Briscoe Cain. His response was equally inflammatory:

“My AR is ready for you, Robert Francis.”
Yes, his “AR is ready.”

1) It’s “ready” to be used to defend himself, his family and his community from criminal, murderous rampages.

Locked and Loaded on Behalf of Empire First

American democracy and capitalist prosperity are dying on the vine of Empire. And this weekend’s drone attack on the largest oil processing facility on the planet is a graphic case of why. So is the related picture below.

The scene is of Yemenis burying a busload of children who were obliterated by American-made bombs delivered by American-made Saudi aircraft, which were being navigated to target by US command and control assets.

This particular cruel foray was just one of thousands of sorties launched by the Saudis since 2015, which have resulted in upwards of 100,000 civilian deaths in northern Yemen and the virtual destruction of its economy – meaning horrific outbreaks of starvation, cholera and other diseases have become commonplace.

Iran Sends Memo to US Gov't via Swiss Mission to Warn against Any Reaction to Aramco Incident

Iran in its memo rejected involvement in offensives on the Saudi oil installations on Saturday, condemning US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other American officials' allegations.

The memo also warned that if any attack is launched against Iran, the Islamic Republic's reaction will be rapid and crushing and will likely target more extensive areas than the origin of the attack.

Yemen’s Ansarullah movement announced on Saturday that its drones had successfully attacked two oil plants in the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, stressing that the attacks were a firm response to Riyadh’s relentless bombardment of Yemen.

How Russian And Iran Beat Their Opponents' Strategies

Over the last decades Russia and Iran both needed to develop means to protect themselves against an ever growing threat from the United States and its allies. Both found unique ways to build deterrence that fit their situation.
Neither the U.S. nor its allies reacted to those developments by adopting their strategies or military means. It is only recently that the U.S. has woken up to the real situation. The loss of half its oil export capacity may finally wake up Saudi Arabia. Most other U.S. allies are still asleep.

When NATO extended into east Europe and the U.S. left the Anti-Ballistic-Missile Treaty Russia announced that it would develop countermeasures to keep the U.S. deterred from attacking it. Ten years later Russia delivered on its promise.
Iran, in contrast, developed its weapons along an asymmetric strategy just as Russia did.

NIMMO: CUI BONO, ISRAEL, AND THE ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL

If we consult a map, we discover Israel is situated to the northwest of Saudi Arabia. Iran is in the east and Iraq to the north. Because cruise missiles and drones have the capability of changing direction, we do not have a good idea where the missiles came from and the party responsible for launching them.

For the US, this is not a problem. It is now habituated to telling lies, releasing misinformation, and disseminating propaganda associated with false flag attacks. Much of what it reports is believed without question by millions of Americans. The state describes this mass credulity and inability to question authority as “patriotism.”

Attacks On Major Saudi Oil Installations Show Urgent Need For Peace With Yemen

The Houthi armed forces spokesman claimed responsibility for today's attack:

This operation is one of the largest operations carried out by our forces in the depth of Saudi Arabia and came after a accurate intelligence operation and advance monitoring and cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.
The claim of cooperation by people in Saudi Arabia will make the Saudi rulers even more paranoid than they usually are. It may well be that the drones were launched from inside Saudi Arabia and that their launch point was far nearer to the target than is publicly assumed.
