Biden Regime Escalates Cold War on Russia


Biden Regime Escalates Cold War on Russia

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The US is an unparalleled bully on the world stage — a menace risking global war by its recklessness.

In short order after replacing Trump by brazen election rigging, hardliners in charge of Biden's agenda are heading toward becoming the most recklessly dangerous regime in US history if the current trend keeps escalating.

They risk turning Cold War on Moscow, China, and other countries hot by their megalomaniacal rage to control planet earth, its resources and populations.

Domestically, they're pushing to mass-jab maximum numbers of unwitting Americans with toxic experimental covid drugs that risk serious irreversible harm to health and no benefits.

After less than three months in office, they increased the chance for war in Europe's heartland, near China's border, in the Middle East and perhaps elsewhere — on top of ongoing US wars by hot and/or other means in multiple theaters worldwide.

On Thursday by executive order, Biden defied reality by "declaring a national emergency (sic) with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by" Russia (sic).

No Russian threat exists to the US or other countries.

So Biden regime hardliners invented what doesn't exist to unjustifiably impose new illegal US sanctions on Moscow.

The hostile to peace action came two days after proposing a meeting with Putin.

Along with expelling 10 diplomats from Moscow's Washington mission — based on phony accusations of spying — Biden regime sanctions were imposed on 32 Russian officials, tech companies and entities for invented reasons.

No legitimate ones ever exist. No Russian US meddling, cyberattacks, or "other acts of disinformation and interference" occurred against the US or other countries — what both right wings of the US war party do repeatedly worldwide.

Russia's ruble and non-ruble denominated debt was targeted — on what's issued by its Central Bank, Finance Ministry, and National Wealth Fund after June 14, 2021.

Separately in cahoots with Brussels, Britain, Canada and Australia, eight Russian officials were sanctioned for alleged involvement in (nonexistent) occupation of Crimea.

A statement by US-controlled NATO expressed "solidarity" with the Biden regime over (nonexistent) destabilizing activities by Moscow.

US colonized Britain and the EU expressed support for actions by Biden regime hardliners that are pushing things for possible direct confrontation with Russia.

No evidence remotely suggests any hostile Russian actions against the US, UK, EU nations, or any others anywhere.

Indisputable evidence shows US responsibility for endless wars on humanity by hot and/or other means at home and abroad worldwide.

Biden regime hardliners are going all-out to destroy relations with Russia.

They're recklessly pushing the envelope to involve Moscow in war on Ukraine by escalated provocations along their border. 

Ignoring recklessly dangerous US war on Russia by other means, interventionist Blinken duplicitously said the following:

Washington still "seek(s)  opportunities for cooperation with Russia (sic), with the goal of building a more stable and predictable relationship consistent with US interests (sic)."

Longstanding US policy seeks to transform Russia into a subservient client state.

The same goes for all nations free from the scourge of its imperial control.

In response to hostile US actions on Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the following:

Moscow "repeatedly warned the US about the consequences of its hostile moves that are dangerously raising the level of confrontation between our countries."

Washington is unwilling "to accept the objective reality of a multipolar world in which (its) hegemony is not possible." 

"Its aggressive conduct will certainly meet with resolute resistance. There will inevitably be a response to the sanctions." 

"Washington must realize that it will have to pay for the degradation of bilateral relations." 

"Responsibility for what is happening fully rests with the US."

Washington's envoy John Sullivan was summoned to Russia's Foreign Ministry for what Zakharova said wasn't "a pleasant meeting for him."

According to Tass, he left by a side door without comment, Zakharova adding that talks were "difficult…for the US side."

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov condemned hostile Biden regime sanctions, vowing a tit-for-tat response, adding:

"It goes without saying that illegal US sanctions" virtually rule out a Putin/Biden meeting — the US side isn't seriously pursuing anyway.

Russian lower house State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Leonid Slutsky said the following:

Washington's "decision to expel Russian diplomats will be followed by relevant retaliation by Russia."  

Russian State Duma International Affairs Committee Deputy Chairman Alexei Chepa said Moscow will respond symmetrically to hostile US actions," adding:

"(W)e have a list of (US and other Western entities) which we have tangible issues regarding their tangible interference in our internal affairs, against whom analogous actions will be taken."

Russian upper house Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee First Deputy Chairman Vladimir Dzhabarov made similar comments to the above.

Asked if Moscow will respond symmetrically to hostile Biden regime actions, he said "definitely."

"We cannot leave this unnoticed," adding it's up to the Kremlin to decide on specific retaliatory measures.

"(W)e continue behaving in a reserved and quiet manner, but will retaliate…"

Extrajudicial actions by the Biden regime Thursday were expected.

They reflect longstanding US bullying on the world stage against nations unwilling to serve its interests at the expense of their sovereign rights.

Russian/US relations are virtually fractured beyond repair, hardliners in Washington bearing full responsibility for escalated Cold War that risks turning hot if they push things too far.

Bilateral relations are highly likely to worsen ahead.

There's virtually no chance of improving them.

Russia's only option is responding in the only language US hardliners understand.

Good faith diplomatic outreach when undertaken is a waste of time.

It's long past time for Russia to slap the US with a taste of its own medicine short of war.

Toughness is the only language its hardliners understand.

Nothing else registers with megalomaniacal monsters in Washington.

Permanent US Occupation of Afghanistan Planned


Permanent US Occupation of Afghanistan Planned

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The US plans permanent occupation of Afghanistan and other countries worldwide.

After reneging on its earlier announced May 1 withdrawal, Biden's impersonator on Wednesday said US troops will be gone from Afghanistan by September 11 — the 20th anniversary of Bush/Cheney's aggression on the nonbelligerent country, unjustifiably justified by the 9/11 mother of all Big Lies to that time.

Afghanistan is occupied by Pentagon regular troops, special forces, CIA operatives, other US dark forces and so-called private military contractors (PMCs).

If Pentagon foot soldiers leave,  remaining US elements will stay in the country, largely covertly.

Washington values Afghanistan strategically and for its resources. 

Potentially worth trillions of dollars in economic value, US policymakers have no intention of relinquishing what they want corporate America to profit from.

Afghanistan resources include barite, chromite, coal, cobalt, copper, gold, iron ore, lead, enormous amounts of highly-valued lithium and other rare earth metals vital for high tech products, natural gas, oil, precious and semi-precious stones, potash, salt, sulfur, talc, zinc, among other minerals.

The US also wants oil and gas pipelines constructed across Afghanistan.

It wants its territory used as part of a plan to encircle Russia and China, along with maintaining opium production used for heroin.

Post-9/11, the US restored Afghanistan's opium economy the Taliban eliminated in the 1990s.

It's a bonanza for money-laundering Western banks and the CIA — Langley profiting greatly from drugs trafficking as a revenue source.

US war on Afghanistan and permanent occupation was planned long before 9/11.

It won't end unless Taliban fighters inflict enough harm on America's presence in the country to arouse US public opinion against continuing Washington's long ago lost war.

"The Afghanistan Papers — A secret history of the war. At War With the Truth" called endless US war in the country unwinable.

Almost a decade ago, US Lt. Col. Daniel Davis spent weeks in the country.

His unclassified report said the following:

"How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding?" 

"Senior ranking US military leaders have so distorted the truth when communicating with the US Congress and American people in regards to conditions on the ground in Afghanistan that the truth has become unrecognizable." 

"This deception has damaged America's credibility among both our allies and enemies, severely limiting our ability to reach a political solution to the war in Afghanistan."

His classified report was more damning, saying:

"If the public had access to these classified reports, they would see the dramatic gulf between what is often said in public by our senior leaders and what is actually true behind the scenes." 

"It would be illegal for me to discuss, use, or cite classified material in an open venue, and thus I will not do so."

Based on what he learned from US commanders, subordinates, low-ranking soldiers, Afghan officials, civilians and village elders, Davis said Taliban fighters control "virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a US or International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) base."

Calling the tactical situation on the ground "abysmal," he witnessed "the absence of success on virtually every level." 

Yet endless war continues after nearly 20 years of raping, destroying and plundering the country — things on the ground worse now than years earlier.

Wednesday's announcement by Biden's impersonator continued Washington's mass deception about reality in Afghanistan and US intentions toward the country.

Taliban officials said they'll boycott further talks with the Biden regime until US forces are gone.

After his impersonator's announcement on Wednesday, White House press secretary refused to say if announced withdrawal of US troops include special forces — because they're staying — along with CIA operatives, other US dark forces and PMCs — not leaving.

Pentagon special forces operate covertly and overtly in around two-thirds of world community countries.

According to analyst Nick Turse, preemptive US wars on invented enemies increasingly rely on  "special operations forces, private contractors, local proxies working with and for the military and CIA, and air power."

Comprising most of the US presence in Afghanistan, they'll remain if and when Pentagon foot soldiers are withdrawn.

Much of what they're involved in is covert. All of it is up to no good — exploiting the country and its people, including by crimes of war and against humanity.

After nearly 20 years of US aggression and occupation, Taliban officials know what they're up against in dealing with belligerent, duplicitous USA.

According to Taliban commander Mullah Salih Khan, his fighters are "prepared to strike" US and its proxy Afghan forces as long as Afghanistan remains occupied after May 1 — vowing to make conditions "nightmar(ish)" for them.

On Wednesday, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid tweeted:

"If the agreement (reached in February 2020) is breached and foreign forces fail to exit our country (by May 1), problems will certainly be compounded and those who failed to comply with the agreement will be held liable."

Endless US aggression in Afghanistan and other US war theaters is highly likely to continue.

Based on their hostile actions so far since replacing Trump in January, one or more new US preemptive wars are likely to be launched.

Both right wings of the US war party reject world peace and stability.

A permanent state of war in multiple theaters is longstanding US policy, notably post-9/11.

Russia Mobilized to Invade Ukraine?


Russia Mobilized to Invade Ukraine?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

In stark contrast to endless US-dominated NATO wars on humanity worldwide, the Russian Federation never attacked or threatened another country since established after the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991.

No Russian threat to Ukraine exists now, none earlier.

Yet establishment media fake news claims otherwise.

NYT disinformation falsely claimed that Moscow is "laying out a justification for military intervention" cross-border in Ukraine (sic)."

Separately, the Times turned truth on its head by saying Russia's "military buildup (along) the Ukraine border and in Crimea" may be prelude to invading Ukraine (sic).

WaPo called for the "US and Europe…to stand up to any Russian aggression in Ukraine" — that doesn't exist and isn't threatened.

Days earlier, interventionist Blinken and complicit G7 foreign ministers falsely called Russian forces in their own territory "threatening and destabilizing (sic)."

The UK owned and controlled BBC features state-approved propaganda exclusively on major issues.

It falsely asked "(i)s Russia going to war with Ukraine (sic)?"

Is it "sabre-rattling or prepar(ing) for war (sic)?

Falsely calling Crimea "annexed," it said "Russia is massing troops in (its own territory) and around the eastern Ukraine conflict zone," threatening war (sic).

According to NY Post propaganda, (m)ore than 100,000 Russian troops in assault vehicles painted with 'invasion stripes' were headed to Ukraine's border Wednesday, intensifying fears of war between the neighboring nations (sic)."

Since the Obama/Biden regime replaced democracy in Ukraine with Nazi-infested fascist tyranny in 2014, US-orchestrated war by Kiev raged intermittently against Donbass along Russia's border. 

Since February, it's been escalating toward becoming full-blown.

What's going on is a diabolical Biden regime plot to draw Russia into it defensively — its UN Charter right — then unjustifiably blame Moscow for US-orchestrated aggression.

On Thursday, interventionist Blinken  falsely accused Russia of "reckless actions (sic)," adding:

"(W)e will hold Russia to account" for invented reasons. No legitimate ones exist.

"We will act firmly in response to Russian actions that cause harm to us or our allies and partners (sic)."

On Thursday, US European Command (EUCOM) head/NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Tod Wolters said the following in testimony before House Armed Services Committee members:

Asked about the chance of Russia invading Ukraine — when no such threat exists — he called the possibility "low to medium (sic)," adding:

"My sense is, with the trend that I see right now, that the likelihood of an occurrence will start to wane."

Separately, Biden regime assistant war secretary for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia Laura Cooper called conflict along the contact line between Ukraine and Donbass "a hot war right now."

Falsely blaming Russia and armed forces of Donetsk and Lugansk, she ignored US dirty hands behind what's going on. 

According to Lugansk official Maria Kovshar, Kiev is blocking efforts to reestablish ceasefire along the contact line, adding:

"The meeting of the Minsk Contact Group showed that Kiev continues to imitate active talks while in reality it sabotages almost all practical issues of resolving the conflict." 

"As part of the discussion of security issues, Ukraine once again tried to push through empty political declarations, and continued to stubbornly block the discussion of improving the coordination mechanism" — acting on orders from Washington.

On Tuesday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov accused the US and NATO of "deliberately turning Ukraine into a powder keg" by supplying its regime with heavy weapons and training for war, adding:

If further escalation occurs, "the responsibility for the consequences of such an escalation will lay entirely at the feet of Kiev and its Western curators."

Biden regime hardliners are recklessly pushing the envelope for full scale war in Europe's heartland along Russia's border.

Do they have WW III in mind?

Will they risk destruction of planet earth and all its lifeforms in pursuit of their diabolical imperial aims?

Cardiologist Richard M. Fleming and Others on the Mother of all Public Health Scams


Cardiologist Richard M. Fleming and Others on the Mother of All Public Health Scams

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Fleming is an eminent MD, PhD, JD cardiologist, attorney, researcher, inventor, author, and coronavirus expert.  

On May 16, he along with noted truth-telling virologist Judy Mikovits and alternative/integrative medicine Dr. Frank Shallenberger will participate in a virtual panel discussion on the following topics:

Was covid engineered to be deadly? 

Was covid deliberately released? 

Why PCR covid tests are completely unreliable. 

Why do governments insist on using a test known to be useless? 

Pathogenic priming and other dangers of covid mRNA mass-jabbing.

Are there any treatments for people injured from covid jabs? 

State-approved emergency use authorization for covid mass-jabbing with experimental, hazardous, unapproved drugs in lieu of known safe, effective treatments.

Mikovits earlier explained that countless numbers of covid jabbed people are becoming seriously ill or dying.

"It should have never been allowed to happen.Yet we see it being forced on the most vulnerable populations," she stressed.

It's state-sponsored destruction of human health and murder — a widespread crime against humanity.

Multiple shots greatly increase the risk of harm to health or death — the more follow-up doses the greater the risk.

 

Millions of covid jabbed Americans, Europeans, and others elsewhere are likely already harmed.

"Anyone with an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease, chronic Lyme disease, anybody with an acquired immune deficiency from any pathogens and environmental toxins, those are the people (most vulnerable to) be (harmed or) killed by" covid jabs, she explained.

Yet what "should never be allowed" is state-sponsored and heavily promoted.

Shallenberger has been practicing  conventional, alternative, and homeopathic medicine for nearly half a century.

He revolutionized anti-aging, preventive medicine.

Lecturing and instructing other doctors on his effective methods in treating patients, he said the following about hazardous covid mass-jabbing:

"I would much rather get a covid infection than get a covid" jab.

"That would be safer and more effective. I have (treated) a number of positive flu cases this year." 

"Some were old and had health concerns." 

"Every single one has done really well with natural therapies including ozone therapy and IV vitamin C."

"People need to have fully informed consent when it comes to injecting foreign genetic material into their bodies."

"No mRNA (drug was) licensed for human use before." 

They're experimental and high-risk. Jabbed individuals are unwitting Pharma guinea pigs — in the most widespread ever human health experiment already turning out very badly.

Fleming called covid mass-jabbing with experimental drugs "bad medicine."

Covid mRNA technology and vaccines "make zero difference in stopping" the viral infection.

"Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) data "show there is no difference." 

Using them is high-risk with no reward. Harm from their use can take months or longer to show up.

Experimental covid mRNA technology and vaccines have "no statistically significant benefit," but risk serious harm.

They can cause "inflammation and blood clotting, Lewy bodies (associated with dementia), mad cow disease, (other serious illnesses) and nothing…benefi(cial)."

Fleming called for the US and other Western states to "immediate(ly) reevaluat(e) whether there's any demonstrated efficacy" (of these experimental covid drugs) because there's no(ne)," adding:

If millions of people are jabbed multiple times with these drugs, it may cause a public health catastrophe.

Individuals jabbed multiple times with these drugs may experience a hyper-inflammatory immune reaction if exposed to the virus again, he explained.

Blood clots found in some jabbed individuals indicate that the encoded spike protein in these drugs cause inflammation, especially for individuals who ingest inflammatory foods and have plaque buildup in their arteries.

There's nothing remotely beneficial from these experimental covid jabs.

Mass-jabbing with them likely already harmed millions of people in the US, West and elsewhere.

Resumption of Vienna JCPOA Talks Going Nowhere


Resumption of Vienna JCPOA Talks Going Nowhere

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The landmark JCPOA nuclear deal is dying a slow death.

Biden regime hardliners have no intention of complying with its provisions as affirmed by Security Council Res. 2231.

Nor will they lift all illegally imposed sanctions on Iran — some at most or none.

Longstanding US war on Iran by other means continues with no signs of easing.

Since replacing Trump nearly three months ago, the Biden regime has done nothing to shift from maximum pressure on Iran to a new way.

Nothing suggests a change of policy ahead.

Whatever may be agreed on in Vienna, if anything, won't be worth the paper it's written on.

Time and again, the US says or does one thing, then goes another way.

As long as Iran remains free from the grip of US imperial control, both right wings of its war party will continue trying to return the country to client state status.

So far it's been by cold war. Given how Biden regime hardliners are stoking possible hot war with Russia and China, perhaps they intend much the same against Iran.

On Thursday, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said if Vienna JCPOA talks fail to achieve constructive progress toward saving the landmark agreement — what's highly likely short-or-longer-term — the delegation he leads will walk away, saying:

"We have said many times that we are not looking for talks of attrition and negotiations that only take time and are held just for negotiations." 

"We will say this clearly today, and we will move in the same direction."

"If the negotiations move ahead towards the constructive direction that we expect, they will continue." 

"Otherwise, they will stop."

Nothing positive was achieved so far because the US side seeks confrontational relations with Iran, not constructive ones.

The same goes for E 3 countries Britain, France and Germany.

Imposing new illegal sanctions on Iran while engaged in Vienna talks showed they're not serious about saving the JCPOA and improving relations with Tehran.

Araqchi slammed their action, saying the following:

"The Europeans not only ignored (Israeli) sabotage (of Iran's Natanz nuclear facility — an act of undeclared war), but also they were busy imposing new sanctions on Iran and that was totally unacceptable." 

"We told them that even your human rights sanctions that you imposed two days ago, we consider them as JCPOA-related sanctions, because right in the middle of negotiations you decided to impose sanctions and that…certainly (aims) to undermine the current negotiations and to undermine the JCPOA altogether."

Britain and EU bloc countries operate as virtual US colonies, obeying their imperial master in Washington.

Before talks began on Thursday, participants engaged in tough exchanges, said Araqchi, adding:

"Although we still have (sharp) differences, we share this common interest that we have to move forward, and we have to expedite this process in order to come to a conclusion as soon as possible."

At the same time, Araqchi and other Iranian officials know what they're up against.

No US good faith outreach to Iran exists. Whatever path it chooses in relations with other countries, colonized European states march in lockstep.

Iran is justifiably uncompromising in demanding that all illegally imposed sanctions on the country must be lifted.

The Biden regime has no intention of taking this step, no intention to comply with its international obligations — how the US always operates.

On Thursday, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif said in stark contrast to his government's good faith diplomacy, "(t)he Biden (regime) has only shown a commitment to Trump's maximum pressure."

At the same time, he ruled out protracted talks that fail to agree on lifting all sanctions and preserving the landmark agreement. 

That's where things now stand. No evidence suggests a softening of Washington's position ahead.

Clear evidence shows it'll continue making unacceptable demands in return for empty promises to be broken like virtually always before.

Escalated Biden Regime Cold War on Russia at Risk of Turning Hot


Escalated Biden Regime Cold War on Russia at Risk of Turning Hot

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Escalated Cold War by Biden regime hardliners on Russia risks pushing the envelope for direct confrontation by accident or design.

On Wednesday at NATO headquarters in Brussels, interventionist Blinken and war secretary Austin recited a familiar litany of bald-faced Big Lies about Russia.

Ignoring US-orchestrated aggression by Kiev proxy forces along the contact line with Donbass near Russia's border, Austin falsely accused Moscow of "provocations" that threaten Ukraine's "territorial integrity (sic)" — that don't exist.

Blinken made similar hostile remarks, falsely accusing Russia of "aggressive actions (and) rhetoric directed at Ukraine (sic)."

He lied calling Crimea "occupied" Ukrainian territory.

He lied claiming Russia "invade(ed)" Ukraine in 2014.

He lied saying Moscow threatens to invade Ukraine again.

He lied accusing "Russian-led forces (of) attacks (along) the line of contact in eastern Ukraine."

Defying reality, he praised US-orchestrated aggression by Ukrainian conscripts on Donbass, claiming they "demonstrated…real restraint in the face of…Russian provocations (sic)."

He lied saying he and other Biden regime hardliners "prefer…stable predictable relation(s) with Russia (sic)" — while pushing the envelope for direct confrontation.

According to Bloomberg News on Wednesday, the Biden regime intends imposing (illegal) sanctions on 12 Russian officials and 20 entities — along with expelling at least 10 Russian diplomats from the US.

Reportedly the Biden regime will also target Russia's financial sector, including its sovereign debt.

According to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, the Biden regime will "expand…existing prohibitions on US banks trading in Russian government debt," adding:

Previous US actions prohibit US "financial institutions from buying new bonds directly from Russia's central bank, finance ministry and the country's…sovereign-wealth fund after June 14."

In cahoots with escalated US war on Russia by other means, Brussels, Britain, Canada and Australia intend imposing new sanctions on its officials and entities, the Journal reported.

Last month, US intelligence falsely accused Moscow of "influence operations" to undermine Biden's presidential campaign (sic).

US allegations and accusations against Russia and other nations free from its imperial control are consistently baseless.

Not a shred of credible evidence supports them.

Indisputable evidence documents US war on humanity at home and worldwide in pursuit of its diabolical hegemonic aims.

Separately according to Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev on Wednesday:

Biden regime hardliners, their NATO partners, and colonized Ukraine are plotting to destabilize Crimea, "destroy" its economy, and "worsen living conditions on the peninsula, including through food, energy and water blockades," adding:

They're plotting "to destabilize the social…political and socio-economic situation" in the Russian republic.

Online they're calling for "protest rallies..revanchist and nationalistic" actions.

According to Ukraine's Security Service, the country's (US-controlled) military began conducting (provocative) "anti-terrorism drills (sic) in the Kharkov region near Russia's border from mid-April "until the end of May."

First Deputy Chairman of Russia's upper house Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee Vladimir Dzhabarov said the following:

Moscow will respond symmetrically to hostile Biden regime actions.

"We cannot leave this unnoticed," he stressed, adding:

Retaliatory actions will be taken.

"It is necessary to pinpoint sore spots that will be really very sensitive for America." 

"I think that our relevant agencies, the Foreign Ministry and other agencies will begin considering it now."

"I think that we will continue behaving in a reserved and quiet manner, but will retaliate if need be."

"(N)othing will affect us."

"We have gone through a lot throughout our history – the Great Patriotic War, the disintegration of the country, the 1990s." 

"(W)e rose from our knees and keep moving forward, something which irritates the Americans most of all." 

"They cannot put up with the fact that Russia is no longer what it was when they saw it in the early 1990s." 

"(T)here is no turning back. (T)he more they work against our country, impose sanctions, the more the country consolidates around its leader."

For nearly three months since replacing Trump by brazen election rigging, the illegitimate Biden regime has been pushing the envelope for possible confrontation with Russia, China, and other nations free from US control.

Run by megalomaniacal monsters, the US risks destruction of planet earth and all its lifeforms by its rage for unchallenged global dominance it can't achieve.

Nonbelligerent China Top US Threat?


Nonbelligerent China Top US Threat?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Nonbelligerent China is outsmarting, out-growing, outwitting, and out-maneuvering the US on the world stage.

While Beijing gains allies by working cooperatively with other countries, the US is declining because its unwilling to cease trying to dominate the world community of nations by pressure, bullying, bribing, or bludgeoning them into bending to its will.

A new US DNI report turned reality on its head about China.

It's part of Washington's war on the country by other means that risks turning hot by overstepping and getting a long overdue sharp response that delivers a taste of its own medicine.

No struggle by Beijing to achieve an "epochal geopolitical shift" exists.

Nor do its ruling authorities seek to dominate the Indo/Pacific militarily the way hegemon USA operates worldwide.

The DNI falsely claimed that "Beijing is increasingly combining its growing military power with its economic, technological and diplomatic clout to…secure what it views as its territory and regional preeminence and pursue international cooperation at Washington's expense (sic)."

There's no Chinese "push for global power," no "provocative actions," no growing use "of air, naval and maritime law enforcement platforms" to control other nations, their resources and populations like hegemon USA operates.

China's geopolitical agenda has nothing to do with "efforts to…undercut that of the United States, drive wedges between Washington and its allies and partners, and foster new international norms that favor (its) system" over other world community nations.

Beijing prioritizes peace, stability, cooperation with other nations, and compliance with international law.

In stark contrast, both right wings of the US war party operate exclusively by their own rules — endless wars by hot and/or other means their favored strategies.

Biden regime DNI Avril Haines operates like her predecessor toward China and other countries free from US control.

Last December, Trump's DNI John Ratcliffe invented his own fabricated reality by claiming that China "poses the greatest threat to America today (sic), and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War II (sic).

Far and away, that dubious distinction applies to undemocratic USA and its colonized partners in high crimes of war and against humanity.

Unilateralism no longer works in today's multi-polar world.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed that Beijing will only engage with the US as an equal.

Its ruling authorities won't tolerate the notion of bending to its hegemonic will — nor should other countries.

China, Russia, Iran, and other countries free from US control respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other nations — polar opposite US rage to dominate them by brute force and other dirty tricks.

On all things China and most other countries, Biden regime hardliners continue Trump's maximum pressure on nations free from US control with a major difference.

During his time in office, Trump continued ongoing wars he inherited but launched no new ones.

In sharp contrast, Biden regime hardliners are pushing the envelope for possible war in Europe's heartland, the Indo/Pacific, and perhaps the Middle East.

Their recklessness risks global war if their belligerence crosses a rubicon of no return — what's frighteningly possible.

Vienna JCPOA Talks Going Nowhere


Vienna JCPOA Talks Going Nowhere

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Hegemon USA can never be trusted.

When conducted, good faith diplomatic outreach to its ruling authorities achieves nothing binding.

US promises are consistently hollow, betrayal happening time and again.

For over 42 years, US policy toward Iran has been and continues to be all about eliminating its sovereignty by returning the country to client state status — by whatever it takes to achieve this aim.

On all things Iran, Biden regime hardliners continue Trump-imposed maximum pressure.

Doing nothing to go another way, they continue relentless US war on Iran by other means.

Talks in Vienna to lift illegally imposed US sanctions and preserve the landmark JCPOA nuclear deal achieved nothing so far.

On Wednesday, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the following:

"(W)hen it comes to decision-making, (E 3 countries Britain, France and Germany) bow to the Americans and do not act independently."

Direct and indirect "(p)roposals by the Americans are arrogant and contemptuous. They are not worth looking at."

The same goes for their E 3 colonies.

"We have already declared Iran's policy. Sanctions must be removed first," Khamenei stressed, adding: 

"Once we are certain that has been done, we will carry out our commitments." 

This is because (the US and its European colonies) have broken their promises tens of times, and it is the same now."

"We do not have any argument on this issue, but they should be careful that the sides do not drag their feet because that will be to the detriment of the country."

Indirect US involvement in Vienna talks are unrelated to good faith outreach to Iran.

Biden regime policy toward the Islamic Republic is all about wanting to impose its will on the country and people, Khamenei stressed.

Nothing by the US side suggests otherwise. 

Likely in cahoots with Biden regime regime hardliners, Israel is going all-out to sabotage Vienna talks.

Temporarily disrupting legitimate nuclear enrichment at Iran's Natanz facility complicates talks in the Austrian capital.

Tehran's initial response includes enrichment of uranium to 60% purity, further retaliatory steps to follow.

President Rouhani said Iran can enrich uranium to 90% purity — though it has no intention to develop nukes it abhors and wants eliminated everywhere.

On Wednesday, Iran's envoy to the international organizations in Vienna Kazem Gharibabadi said the Netanyahu regime "will…soon realize that they must never threaten Iranians."

On Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif tweeted the following:

"Nuclear terrorism at Natanz has unleashed dangerous spiral that can only be contained by ending US economic terrorism initiated by Trump.

Biden/Harris have a clear choice to make:

Either the Obama/Biden deal

OR

Trump's 'maximum failure' campaign

No alternative. Not much time."

A longstanding state of undeclared US war on Iran by other means continues with no signs of easing.

According to Iraq's Saberin News, an attack by "unknown resistance forces" on Mossad's headquarters in the country's north killed 10 Israeli spies and wounded others, citing unidentified intelligence sources.

It's unknown whether what happened may be part of Iranian retaliation against Israeli sabotage of its Natanz nuclear facility.

Separately in response to Iran's intention to enrich uranium to 60% purity, a joint statement by E 3 countries Britain, France and Germany expressed "grave concern (sic)," adding:

"This is a serious development (sic) since the production of highly enriched uranium constitutes an important step in the production of a nuclear weapon (sic)." 

"Iran has no credible civilian need for enrichment at this level (sic)."

Interventionist Blinken unacceptably called the announced move "provocative (sic)."

Defying reality, he added that it raises questions about whether Tehran is serious about pursuing good faith talks in Vienna.

Unmentioned by Blinken and E 3 countries is that if they returned to JCPOA compliance as mandated by international law — that includes lifting all illegally imposed sanctions on Iran — legitimate steps taken by Iran since last year would be immediately reversed.

The US and E 3 have taken no good faith steps to fulfill their JCPOA obligations.

Their past and more recent actions show they can never be trusted.

NYT Pushes Mandatory Covid Mass-Jabbing


The NYT Pushes Mandatory Covid Mass-Jabbing

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Nothing remotely justifies jabbing anyone for seasonal flu-renamed covid — especially not with experimental, hazardous, unapproved drugs.

If experience flu-like symptoms, safe, effective, low-cost drugs are readily available for treatment, as earlier explained.

Jabs with hazardous Pfizer/Moderna mRNA technology or J & J/AstraZeneca vaccines for covid risk serious harm to health near-or-longer-term.

These drugs also increase the likelihood of contracting the disease they're supposed to protect against.

Taking them is entirely high-risk with no reward.

Yet Western governments, their public health handmaidens, Pharma profiteers, and press agent media relentlessly push their use.

Their modus operandi is fear-mongering mass deception — the above dark forces working in cahoots with each other to harm public health, not protect and preserve it as falsely claimed.

The lying machine NYT is pushing mandatory mass-jabbing for healthcare personnel and students returning to classrooms, including ones too young to understand what's going on.

The broadsheet also wants mass-jabbing mandated for employment, prison guards, police, firefighters, teachers, and others coming in contact with significant numbers of other people.

In normal times, that's most everyone.

In response to increasing flu now called covid outbreaks in states where a large percent of the population was jabbed, the Times falsely blamed a new strain for what's going on.

Multiple strains of flu show up annually worldwide, unaccompanied by mass deception since last year.

The infectiousness of these strains are much the same. 

Claiming the arrival of new ones more virulent than others is part of mass deception fear-mongering to push more unsuspecting people to be jabbed with what risks possible irreversible harm and no protection.

Virtually everything mandated, recommended, and otherwise promoted since early last year is part of the diabolical state-sponsored Great Reset plot against public health, welfare and personal freedoms.

It's already been responsible for more mass casualties than most wars of aggression.

If continues unchecked ad infinitum, ordinary people in the West and elsewhere will likely be harmed more grievously and permanently than any combination of major diseases or wars.

As it's done since early last year, the Times falsely claimed that mass-jabbing for covid is the best way "to turn the tide and quell" outbreaks — without explaining that their numbers in 2020 and so far this year are no different than in most previous years.

Falsely claiming otherwise is part of the fear-mongering mass deception campaign that effectively brainwashed most people to believe what's polar opposite reality.

Mandating covid mass jabbing for any segment of the US population will flagrantly breach federal law, the Nuremberg Code requiring consent on matters relating to health and Hippocratic Oath for doctors to do no harm.

What's experimental in the US can't be legally mandated.

Defying science, the Times falsely claimed that mass-jabbing with experimental, unapproved covid drugs "have proved safe and are important not only for their health, but for the health of those they deal with in their jobs (sic)."

The above claim is a bald-faced Big Lie, typical of Times mass deception on most all important domestic and geopolitical issues.

Reality is polar opposite its turning reality on its head.

In cahoots with US dark forces and Pharma, the Times and other establishment media aim to brainwash as many people as possible to self-inflict harm.

Protecting and preserving well-being requires following a healthy lifestyle, along with ignoring media proliferated propaganda about all things covid.

Russophobic Media Rage


Russophobic Media Rage

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Other than while WW II was ongoing and during its lost 1990s decade under Boris Yeltsin, Western Russia bashing has been relentless for over a century. 

It's been at a fever pitch since Biden replaced Trump illegitimately by brazen election fraud.

Since February, Biden regime hardliners in cahoots with their Western partners transformed US-colonized Ukraine into the world's top hot spot.

Stoking conflict by Ukrainian conscripts against Donbass along Russia's border risks embroiling Europe's heartland in full-scale war for the first time since WW II ended over 75 years ago.

Instead of calling for restoration of peace and stability in multiple US war theaters, establishment media cheerlead what demands condemnation.

They're militantly hostile toward all things Russia, a nonbelligerent nation threatening no one.

The NYT operates as a virtual press  agent for US dark forces — supporting their high crimes at home and abroad, demonizing their enemies.

Defying reality, the Times falsely accused Moscow of "trying to intimidate the Ukrainian government (sic)" — installed and controlled by the US after the Obama/Biden's 2014 coup, it consistently leaves unexplained.

US-dominated NATO and their Ukrainian proxies bear full responsibility for escalated conflict in Europe's heartland.

Separately, the Times said about to be announced Biden regime sanctions on Russia aim "to cut deeper than previous efforts to punish Russia."

Left unexplained by the Times and other establishment media is that unilaterally imposed sanctions by one country on others flagrantly breach the UN Charter and other international law.

Nor do they explain that they're for invented reasons. No legitimate ones exist to justify what's clearly unjustifiable.

US accusations against Russia and other nations free from its imperial grip are baseless.

Russophobic WaPo falsely accused Moscow of threatening Ukraine by "increasing its military presence in the region (sic)."

In stark contrast to globally deployed US forces in parts of the world where they don't belong, Russia's "increase(d) military presence" is in its own territory, threatening no one.

WaPo repeated long ago debunked Big Lies about (nonexistent) Russian "aggression (and) annex(ing) Crimea (sic)."

It falsely suggested that Moscow is planning an "invasion of Ukraine (sic)."

Russophobic London Guardian editors falsely accused Putin of "menac(ing)" Ukraine and  "defy(ing) (the) international" order (sic) — a US-dominated, Israeli speciality, polar opposite how Moscow operates.

Guardian editors lied, saying Putin aims to "seiz(e) territory that was once in the Soviet Union (sic)," adding:

"(T)he Kremlin relies on military posturing, cyber-espionage and geopolitical mischief to prove that it cannot be ignored (sic)."

"That dynamic poses an immediate threat to the sovereignty of Ukraine and a recurrent challenge to its allies (sic)."

No responsible editors would touch the above rubbish.

Russophobic Guardian editors featured it — their litany of bald-faced Big Lies typical of how they consistently deceive readers.

The same debauched standard applies to virtually all establishment media — spreading fake news, suppressing what's important for everyone to know.

No "peril" to Ukraine and Eastern Europe exists from Russia, no planned "Kremlin territorial aggression."

Separately, Sergey Lavrov slammed unacceptable EU sanctions on Iranian officials "for alleged human rights violations" — that were invented as part of the bloc's war on Tehran in cahoots with the US.

Their action "raises many questions," said Lavrov, calling the move "a disaster" or a "mistake" that's "worse than a crime," adding:

"(W)e condemn any attempts to undermine the process that is unfolding with difficulty in Vienna between all the participants in the JCPOA."

"All unilateral sanctions imposed by Washington in direct violation of the JCPOA must, of course, be lifted."

The same goes for lifting all illegal US "restrictions imposed on foreign companies for their cooperation with Iran."

By going along with unacceptable US policies toward Iran, the EU is following "the same downward path, and is replacing legitimate methods with unilateral moves (that) must end."

Britain and EU bloc countries operate as virtual US colonies.

Both right wings of the US war party are militantly hostile toward Russia, China, Iran, and other independent countries unwilling to sell their souls to a higher power in Washington.

Belligerent Biden regime hardliners threaten to make a bad situation much worse.

Conflict they're stoking along Russia's border with Ukraine risks embroiling Europe's heartland in full-scale war.

Establishment media consistently support US-led aggression instead of condemning what flagrantly breaches the rule of law.
