Mike Whitney: Did Trump scrap the Iran Deal to Pay Back his Pro-Israel Campaign Donors?

Did Donald Trump scrap the Iran nuke’s deal to pay back his pro-Israel campaign donors? Political analyst Eli Clifton seems to think so, and he argues the point pretty persuasively too. Here’s an excerpt from his article at the Lobe Log:
“President Donald Trump has just fulfilled a campaign pledge to tear up the Obama administration’s signature foreign policy achievement…the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA. (The Iran Nukes deal)…..
….today’s unpopular announcement may have been exactly what two of Trump’s biggest donors, Sheldon Adelson and Bernard Marcus, and what one of his biggest inaugural supporters, Paul Singer, paid for when they threw their financial weight behind Trump. Marcus and Adelson, who are also board members of the Likudist Republican Jewish Coalition, have already received substantial returns on their investment: total alignment by the U.S. behind Israel…
Adelson… contributed $35 million in outside spending to elect Trump…. Newt Gingrich, a huge recipient of Adelson’s financial largesse during his failed 2012 presidential campaign, said that Adelson’s “central value” is Israel….
Adelson… has advocated launching a nuclear weapon against Iran as a negotiating tactic and threatening to nuke Tehran, a city with a population of 8.8 million, if Iran does not completely abandon its nuclear program…..
Trump and the GOP are deeply indebted to anti-Iran deal billionaires who aren’t afraid to advocate for policies that push the country closer to another war in the Middle East.” (“Follow the Money: Three Billionaires Paved Way for Trump’s Iran Deal Withdrawal”, Eli Clifton, Lobe Log)

So what’s going on here? Did Trump really withdraw from the agreement because he thought it was a bad deal for America or because, as he candidly admitted on Tuesday, “When I make promises, I keep them”?

That’s fine, but on whose behalf did Trump make those promises, that’s what we want to know? The American people don’t benefit from a broken “nukes” agreement nor does Trump’s base nor do the frustrated allies nor does the international community. No one benefits. No one except Israel, that is.

Israel clearly benefits from the reimposing of economic sanctions, from the weakening of Iran’s economy, from the further isolation of its arch-rival in the region, and from the intensifying of hostilities between Washington and Tehran. Any policy-shift that brings the US closer to a shooting war with Iran, benefits Israel, just as the destruction of Iraq benefited Israel, just as the destruction of Libya benefited Israel, just as the destruction of Syria would have benefited Israel. (had it succeeded.) The elimination of strong, independent secular Arab nations unavoidably enhances Israel’s regional power which is why Israel supports the strategy. When Israel’s enemies get smaller and more fragmented, Israel gets bigger. It’s that simple. What we want to know is whether Trump’s decision was shaped by Israel’s interests or America’s? We also want to know whether Trump’s withdraw will be used as a pretext for dragging the country into a war with Iran? That’s the question that’s on everyone’s mind.

Did the attention-impaired Trump actually read the JCPOA? Does he realize that no other member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has ever been asked to meet the same onerous requirements as Iran, the same additional protocols, and the same stringent, intrusive inspections regime? Does he know how unfairly Iran has been treated, how they’ve been demonized in the media, how they’ve been hectored, harassed and threatened relentlessly by warmongering countries like the US that punish Iran with crippling sanctions while building an entire new class of “usable” nuclear weapons for themselves?

No, of course not. Trump knows nothing about Iran or the nuke’s deal, and he could care less. What he cares about is power, executive power, the kind of power that has eluded Trump so far because he lacks a constituency. Now he “gets it”. Now he’s assembling a team of neocons like Bolton and Pompeo and ingratiating himself with strong supporters of Israel. They will provide the foundation for Trump’s grandiose personal ambitions by helping him tighten his grip on executive power. This is why he put the kibosh on the Iran nukes deal without even reading the agreement. He’s just placating his base to strengthen his own position. Trump’s actions invariably revolve around Trump. He is the center of his own world. Here’s an excerpt from an article by former US Intelligence Officer Paul Pillar:
“Two motivations, more than any others, have driven the opposition to the JCPOA. One is the desire to wreck whatever Barack Obama accomplished…..The other major motivation is to stay in step with the preferences of the right-wing government of Israel. The political and financial mechanisms include fear among American politicians of antagonizing the lobby that works on that government’s behalf. They also include wealthy supporters of that government bankrolling advocacy groups dedicated to sustaining tension and confrontation with Iran, with opposition to the JCPOA at the core of that effort.

… certainly is not in U.S. interests to support the game that Netanyahu is playing with the issue, which is to oppose any and all agreements with Tehran as a way of maintaining Iran as a pariah and a foil, in an effort to distract attention from Israel’s own destabilizing activities and to restrict U.S. diplomatic freedom of action in the Middle East…..Regardless of how much fondness one may have for Israel, it never will be sound policy to subcontract any portion of one’s own nation’s policies to a foreign government. Acting from either or both of these motivations is policy malpractice of the worst kind.” (“Hold the Deal-Killers Accountable”, Paul Pillar, Lobe Log)
That sums it up perfectly. Now a few words about Iran:

Iran is a long-term victim of US-Israeli belligerence and aggression. The broken nuclear deal is just the latest addition to the 65 year-long litany of hostility and abuse.

In 1953, the CIA toppled the Iranian government, installed the Shah, helped to kill or imprison thousands of leftists and dissidents, fast-tracked the issuing of contracts to the giant oil corporations, helped arm and train the Shah’s secret police, the SAVAK, and plunged the country into 26 years of agonizing police-state repression and tyranny. Sound familiar?

It should. Washington has followed the same basic blueprint in over 50 countries since the end of World War 2. Regime change is just the way Washington does business.

Have you ever wondered what life was like under the Shah? Here’s a brief summary from The Harvard Crimson:
“The Shah systematically dismantled the judicial system of Iran and the country’s guarantees of personal and social liberties. …. Nearly every source of creative, artistic and intellectual endeavor in our culture was suppressed.

The SAVAK conducted most of the torture, under the friendly guidance of the CIA which set up SAVAK in 1957 and taught them how to interrogate suspects. Amnesty International reports methods of torture that included “whipping and beating, electric shocks, extraction of teeth and nails, boiling water pumped into the rectum, heavy weights hung on the testicles, tying the prisoner to a metal table heated to a white heat, inserting a broken bottle into the anus, and rape.”…
The Shah greatly expanded the military and turned it against his own people. With newfound oil wealth the Shah bought $2C million of U.S. arms. The U.S. military trained Iranian officers. Despite claims that a strong army was needed to prevent external aggression, its real purpose became clear when the army murdered more than 50,000 Iranians fighting the Shah.” …. The number of students tortured, lost or murdered is unknown.” (“Life Under the Shah“, The Harvard Crimson)
This is America’s legacy in Iran: “Whipping, beating, electric shocks, extraction of teeth, boiling water pumped into the rectum, and rape.” The United States will never be able to repay Iran for the 26 year-long reign of terror it inflicted on the country or the ocean of blood generated by the Shah. Washington alone is responsible for that suffering and carnage.

In 1979, the Iranian people overthrew Washington’s stooge (Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi) and installed Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini as the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic. The Ayatollah quickly seized control of the gas and oil industries and began recycling revenues into critical infrastructure, social services and the military. Washington has never forgiven Iran for its act of defiance in restoring its own sovereign independence. Nearly 4 decades later, the US is still doing everything in its power to roll back the revolution and reassert control over Iran’s vast natural wealth. Trump’s impulsive withdraw from the JCPOA is likely part of a broader destabilization plan that is aimed at regime change.

While there’s nothing new about US intervention, it’s worth noting the stark difference between a peaceful country like Iran and a chronic meddler like the US. For example,

Since the end of World War 2, Iran:

  1. Has not overthrown or tried to overthrow any foreign governments
  2. Has not attempted to assassinate any foreign leaders.
  3. Has not attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movements in other countries.
  4. Has not interfered in any foreign elections.
  5. Has not tortured foreign nationals in other countries.

Now let’s look at Washington’s record. Since the end of World War 2, the United States has:

  1. Attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments, most of which were democratically-elected.
  2. Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries.
  3. Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders.
  4. Attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movement in 20 countries.
  5. Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.*
  6. Plus … although not easily quantified … has been more involved in the practice of torture than any other country in the world … for over a century … not just performing the actual torture, but teaching it, providing the manuals, and furnishing the equipment.” (“The Anti-Empire Report”, William Blum)

Can you spot the difference between the two countries and their approach to foreign policy?

If you are one of the millions of people who get their news from the western media, you probably think the opposite is true. You probably think Iran and the “Mullahs” are the problem not peace-loving Uncle Sam.

It’s all baloney. Iran hasn’t had a day’s rest since it removed the miscreant Shah in 1979. The US has never let up on its relentless campaign to oust the government and install another servile lackey who will do their bidding.

Did you know that “Forty-five U.S. military bases encircle Iran, with over 125,000 troops in close proximity.”

It’s true. Iran is completely surrounded by hostile US forces that are ready to go to war at a moment’s notice.

And how many Iranian bases are there on US borders?

Not even one.

Did you know that the frequently-made claim that “Iran is the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism” is nonsense? It’s a complete fabrication. Think about it. Iran has put its own military personnel in harms way in Syria to fight Sunni extremists. (Al Qaida, Al Nusra, ISIS etc.) Why would they fight the terrorists in Syria but support them elsewhere?

They wouldn’t and they don’t. It’s just more disinformation from the dissembling media. Check this out:
A February 26, 2015, report by the director of national intelligence, titled 'Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities,' stated that Iran is not the chief sponsor of terrorism, and removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats. The report asserted Tehran’s intentions are to “dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners and de-escalate tensions with Saudi Arabia…, and combat Sunni extremists, including the Islamic State.” (“Rethinking Iran’s Terrorism Designation”, M. Reza Behnam, Counterpunch)
Here’s more from the same piece:
“Iranians know all too well the egregious effects of terrorism. For decades, U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies have covertly financed, equipped and trained opposition groups that have fomented and carried out terrorist attacks inside Iran. Thousands of civilians and political figures, including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, have suffered injury at the hands of terrorists.”
Yes, but if Iran isn’t funding, arming and training all those terrorists, then who is? Here’s part of the answer:
“U.S. intelligence agencies have supported the acts of violence committed by the Mujahedin-e Khalq—listed by the State Department as a terrorist group (now delisted) that advocates the overthrow of the Islamic Republic—as well as the Baluchi militant Salafi group Jundullah. An Iranian ethnic minority, Jundullah is a Sunni group aligned with the thinking of al-Qaeda.
In 2007, Congress agreed to a Bush administration request of $400 million to escalate covert operations to destabilize Iran’s government, with regime change the ultimate goal. The funding request came at the same time that a National Intelligence Estimate—-the collective work of America’s sixteen spy agencies—concluded that Iran had ceased its efforts to develop nuclear weapons in 2003….
Beginning in 2008, four of Iran’s nuclear scientists were assassinated on the streets of Tehran; the evidence pointed to Israeli agents. In 2011, a military arms depot was blown up, killing 17 people. The incident was similar to a blast in October 2010 at an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps missile base in Khorrambad. Both acts of sabotage were attributed to Israel.” (“Rethinking Iran’s Terrorism Designation”, M. Reza Behnam, Counterpunch)

So while there’s no hard evidence of Iran sponsoring terrorism, there’s a heckuva a lot of proof that Washington and Tel Aviv have been up to no good, including cyber-warfare (Stuxnet), targeted assassinations, arming anti-government groups (and foreign jihadists in Syria), and all manner of violent covert operations aimed at toppling the government and installing another compliant meat-puppet.

But “Wait”, you say, “What about Iran’s support for Hezbollah and Hamas? Aren’t they terrorist organizations?”

No, they’re not. They might be enemies of Washington and Tel Aviv, but that doesn’t make them terrorists. Was Hezbollah acting like a terrorist organization in 2006 when they defended their country against Israeli aggression and booted the IDF back over the border where they belonged?

No, that was self defense, not terrorism. Here’s more:
“Tehran does not support “international” terrorism, but it does provide material support to regional movements that it calls the oppressed, whose battle is directed toward the state of Israel—Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. These groups have used violence against Israel to end the brutal occupation of their land……Iran’s leaders believe that Israel’s long-term goal is to weaken the Islamic world, eliminating all resistance, in order to carry out its expansionist designs.” (“Rethinking Iran’s Terrorism Designation”, M. Reza Behnam, Counterpunch)
The truth is, you can’t believe anything you read about Iran in the mainstream media. It’s all agenda-driven fake news concocted to justify more sword-rattling, more sanctions and more bloody foreign wars. Critical thinkers should look for alternate sources of news so they can analyze the information themselves and make up their own minds.

Dr. Eowyn: National data bases don’t show 6 adults were killed at Sandy Hook school

We are told that on December 14, 2012, lone gunman Adam Lanza went on a shooting spree in Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, killing 20 children and 6 adults.

The six adults are the principal and teachers at SHES:
  1. Rachel Davino: teacher’s aide; age 29.
  2. Dawn Hocksprung: principal; age 47.
  3. Anne Marie Murphy: teacher’s aide; age 52.
  4. Lauren Rousseau: teacher; age 29.
  5. Mary Sherlach: school psychologist; age 56.
  6. Victoria Soto: teacher; age 27.
Strangely, various data bases do not show that the above six adults had actually died.

(1) Social Security Death Master File

To begin, neither the 6 adults nor the 20 children show up in Social Security’s Death Master File — the data base for the Social Security Death Index that’s reported on genealogy websites. I addressed this in my post, “No one died in Sandy Hook: Testimony from Social Security Death Master File“.

(2) FBI Crime Statistics

Then, there is the FBI’s 2012 crime statistics for Connecticut, which show the number of homicides (“murder and nonnegligent manslaughter”) for the city of Newtown in 2012 as zero (0). Here’s a screenshot of the table, which I’d taken from the FBI website as recently as April 28, 2018.

Some claim the reason for the zero homicide is because the FBI used only data reported by city and town law enforcement, but the Sandy Hook incident was handled by the Connecticut state police, which explains why Newtown police reported to the FBI zero homicides in 2012.
Indeed, the FBI does say this about its data sources:
The data used in creating this table were from all city and town law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete offense data for 2012.
But how do we know that the reason why the FBI table shows zero homicide for Newtown in 2012 is because Newtown police left the reporting to the state police?

The FBI’s methodology for compiling its annual reports on crimes in the USA does not support that claim. The FBI states:
The national UCR Program published the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook (revised 2004), which details procedures for classifying and scoring offenses and serves as the contributing agencies’ basic resource for preparing reports. The final responsibility for data submissions rests with the individual contributing law enforcement agency.
And who is the “individual contributing law enforcement agency”? The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook, 2004 clearly states that the city, not state, police is the law enforcement agency responsible for reporting offenses, including homicides, that occurred within that city:
pp. 8-9: “Jurisdiction – The purpose of establishing appropriate jurisdiction is to depict the nature and volume of crime in a particular community, not for an agency to claim or take credit…the national UCR Program developed the following guidelines:
1. City law enforcement agencies should report offenses that occur within their city jurisdictions.
2. County or state law enforcement agencies should report offenses that take place in the county outside the limits of the city….
6. Agencies must report only those arrests made for offenses committed within their own jurisdictions….
In other words, cities having their own police departments, as a rule, report their own crime data to the UCR Program…. In some localities, the sheriff, state police, or a federal law enforcement agency will assist a local police department in the investigation of crimes committed within the limits of the city. Even though this is the case, the city police department will report the offenses, unless, again, there is a written or oral agreement specifying otherwise. The jurisdictional guidelines provide for most local reporting. Whenever possible, the local law enforcement agency of the geographical area in which the crime occurred should report the data.
From the above, it is clear that according to the FBI’s methodology, specifically the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook, it is the responsibility of city police departments, including Newtown’s police department, to report their crime data — including the number of homicides — to the FBI, which in 2012 numbered zero (0).

(3) Bureau of Labor Statistics on occupational fatalities

The U.S. Bureau of Labor collects and publishes data on the number and types of occupational fatalities, including fatalities in education — of management (e.g., school principals) and teachers.

But the data for Connecticut in 2012 do not support the claim that six staff members of Sandy Hook Elementary School had been killed.

To begin, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Table A-5 shows that there were only two deaths (“fatalities”) from “violence and other injuries by persons or animals” of elementary school teachers in the entire U.S.A. in 2012:

It should then come as no surprise that the Bureau of Labor Statistics show no fatalities of teacher or principal in all of Connecticut in 2012:

Patrick J. McShay: Donald Trump's Kosher Controllers and The Coming War for Oil and Israel

Donald Trump's Kosher Controllers and The Coming War for Oil and Israel

By Patrick J. McShay

"Trump's reckless, unwarranted, utterly irrational action will pull Washington ever deeper into an incendiary middle eastern vortex of political and religious conflict that has absolutely nothing to do with the safety and security of the American people". 
                                                *David Stockman, Former Congressman and Ronald Reagan's Budget Director on Trump pulling out of the Iran nuke deal

"Sheldon Adelson, for his part, has advocated launching a nuclear attack against Iran as a negotiating tactic and threatening to nuke Tehran, a city with a population of 8.8 million people if Iran does not completely abandon their nuclear program".-

                                                 *Eli Clifton- Writer 

The American people are being handled by the Deep State and the complicit liars in the mainstream media and the public are none the wiser. We are continuously being dragged into conflicts caused by the "Chosen People" in Israel and we just go along as though their problems are our problems. 

Remember back in 2001 when George Bush "the Dumber" surrounded himself with Neo-Con traitors sold out to Israel, who presented Bush with a plan to take out Israel's enemies in the middle east. One of those Neo-Con traitors was Vice President Dick Cheney.

Bogus intelligence from the Israeli's convinced the shocked, trusting, and the mostly distracted American public to buy the ridiculous conclusions from the government about 911. 

They lied and said it was imperative that we invade Iraq sooner than later. You know, because of Sadam's Weapons of Mass Destruction. Oh, and he was killing his own people. What nonsense!

Trump has surrounded himself with Neo-Con's, liars and fools and the media, especially "No Bomb" Sean Hannity is right there cheerleading the next war for Israel and spewing the same old lies about Syria and Iran. Folks, the middle east is blowing up because of the bad US and Israeli policy going back decades, not because Iran has come to the aid of a longtime ally in Syria.

The US and Israel have been planning regime change in Syria and Iran for over 30 years. This is about oil, natural gas, pipelines, and most of all full spectrum dominance of the region.

Turn off Rupert Murdoch's Fox News and the rest of the mainstream media liars. The dopey teleprompter readers on Fox are as clueless as the audience they deceive on a daily basis.

*In this information age of the internet, Americans clearly choose their enslavement through their belief in the "Chosen People", and the lies that they continue to be fed from the tribe's wealthy supporters and their puppets in the media.

Trump, like Bush, is surrounded by By Neo-Con's who work harder for Israel than they do the American people. Trump and Netanyahu presented an extremely lame case for America's exit from the JCPOA(Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action) nuclear pact with Iran and Fox News is deceiving their audience today just like they did before the Iraq war. 

The US and Iran were not the only countries involved in this agreement and the fact that Iran was in compliance with the provisions set forth in the agreement certainly has our allies baffled and irritated. 

Will Trump now expect our allies to go along with further sanctions against Iran? You can bet he will. These sanctions usually end up hurting the EU countries as much as the country the US is punishing. What will Trump do if they balk at further sanctions?

*Bibi Netanyahu has been lying about Syria's nuclear program for over 2 decades. I'm baffled Why would anyone believe him now?

Had the Iran treaty been allowed to continue, Iran's ability to develop a nuclear weapon would have been set back 10 to 15 years, so why is Trump so eager to tell the international community and nearly 60% of the American people recently polled who said they don't want Trump to renege on the deal, that he has to tear up this deal? 

Why is Bibi's hair on fire? Israel has already provoked an escalation by attacking Syria just an hour after Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. Israel and Fox News lied and reported the attacks in Syria were retaliation for missiles supposedly fired by the Iranian military into the desert in Israel. 

Trump's exit from this deal was long planned by the Jewish billionaires that financially put him over the top in the 2016 election. 

Trump says he is fulfilling a campaign promise by exiting the Iran deal, but a promise to who? In a recent article on, Eli Clifton makes the case that Trump's promises weren't made to the American people but to a trio of Jewish billionaires, Sheldon Adelson, Marcus Bernard, and Paul Singer. 

*I've added the Kushner family and their billions that were as heavily invested in Trump winning the presidency as they are in the illegal settlements that dot the Golan Heights countryside. 

Bernard, the CEO for Home Depot, funds numerous hawkish groups that have advocated war with Syria and Iran. The Nation reported that Bernard was the main source of funding for a small group of fanatical pro-Israel supporters pushing a hard line on Iran. Bernard gave $7million to Trump Super Pac's making him the second largest Trump campaign donor. 

You may have heard during the campaign that Trump was self-financing his campaign and wasn't beholden to anyone, right? Well, not so much. No one gets elected President in America without the financial backing of at least 2 or 3 Jewish billionaires and Donald Trump was no exception. 

Trump mocked Marco Rubio during the campaign as Sheldon Adelson's "Perfect little puppet." Trump later changed his tune after Adelson gave up on little Marco, and shipped $35 million in outside spending to help elect Trump making Adelson his largest donor. 

Paul Singer was a never Trumper, a Ted Cruz backer and the guy Roger Stone said was the Republican originally behind the Trump dossier. Stone said John "Traitor" McCain was the go between for the FBI and Singer. He only supported Trump after it was obvious Trump was going to win.

Adelson and his kosher pals are behind Trump tearing up the Iran deal, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, the increasing violence against the Palestinians and the moves to force regime change in Syria and Iran. Just the other day dopey Rudy Giuliani let it slip that Trump is committed to regime change in Iran. I'm surprised he still has a job.

Politico's Eliana Johnson reported that the most threatening part of Trumps October UN speech, saying he would cancel Washington's participation in the JCPOA if Congress and US allies did not agree to renegotiate the pact. The line was added by "Neo-Con John" Bolton after meeting with Adelson in Las Vegas. 

Zero Hedge is reporting that Bolton is already planning regime change and has been working on a plan with Security Studies Group(SSG), a national security studies group. 

Politico also reported that Neo-Con puppet Nikki "Israeli Haley" "has been this administration's most vocal proponent of decertification" calling her "Trump's Iran whisperer". She is a disgrace as UN Ambassador.

The whole plan for regime change was certainly about oil, natural gas and a competing Russian pipeline but it was also about the major oil reserves found in the Golan Heights by American/Israeli oil and gas company Genie Energy, with ties to Former Vice President Dick Cheney, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, Fox Newscorp owner Rupert Murdoch, former CIA Director James Woolsey, and the Rothchild family among other heavy hitters. 

Shouldn't this be breaking news on Fox? MSNBC? I know CNN could use a big story. They simply aren't allowed to talk about Genie Energy. There's your freedom of speech in America. 

*Cognitive dissonance is bred in a world of indoctrination into religions, false flags, disinformation, and government sleight of hand that influences the public in a news cycle moving a hundred miles an hour. Each of us creates our own reality based on how much truth we are exposed to and how much truth we allow ourselves to accept. 

There seem to be a few conflicts of interest in the Genie Energy group. No one should be surprised now when Fox News is caught lying about Syria and Iran. 

Dick Cheney was interviewed on Fox News today and he was quite concerned about the middle east, but he didn't mention Genie Energy at all. He never will.

Israel, while currently illegally occupying the Golan Heights, knows the rest of the world considers this Syrian land and will never recognize Israel as the legitimate owners no matter how many illegal settlements they build there. 

The only way Israel can expect to hold onto the Golan Heights is by dragging the US into direct conflict with Syria, Iran, and Russia. Israel I'm sure is fine with that. China will side with Iran and Syria as well. So will Turkey, Iraq, and Lebanon. While the US is busy bankrupting Iran and Russia it might be worth noting that the US is already bankrupt.

Former Reagan Budget Director David Stockman believes Trump's moves have "drastically lurched America forward on a path to a monumental financial catastrophe". What would the brainwashed American public say if they knew the truth?

You must consider the power and influence of the men behind the agenda to destroy Syria and Iran. Throw out the ludicrous narratives that, "the US is promoting freedom and democracy" or that, "Assad is gassing his own people". only then can you begin to accept that we are moving rapidly toward another war for Israel based on a mountain of lies.
