(RPI) — Now that the defeat of ISIS in Syria appears imminent, with the Syrian army clearing out some of the last ISIS strongholds in the east, Washington’s interventionists are searching for new excuses to maintain the illegal US military presence in the country. Their original rationale for intervention has long been exposed as another lie.
Remember that President Obama initially involved the US military in Iraq and Syria to “prevent genocide” of the Yazidis and promised the operation would not drift into US “boots on the ground.” That was three years ago and the US military became steadily more involved while Congress continued to dodge its Constitutional obligations. The US even built military bases in Syria despite having no permission to do so! Imagine if Syria started building military bases here in the US against our wishes.
After six years of war the Syrian government has nearly defeated ISIS and al-Qaeda and the US-backed “moderates” turned out to be either Islamist extremists or Kurdish soldiers for hire. According to a recent report, the US has shipped two billion dollars worth of weapons to fighters in Syria via eastern Europe. Much of these weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS directly, or indirectly through “moderates” taking their weapons with them while joining ISIS or al-Qaeda.
“Assad must go,” proclaimed President Obama back in 2011, as he claimed that the Syrian leader was committing genocide against his own people and that regime change was the only way to save Syrians. Then earlier this year, when eastern Aleppo was about to be liberated by the Syrian government, the neocons warned that Assad would move in and kill all the inhabitants. They warned that the population of eastern Aleppo would flee from the Syrian army. But something very different happened. According to the UN’s International Organization for Migration, 600,000 refugees returned to Syria by August. Half of the returnees went back to Aleppo, where we were told Assad was waiting to kill them.
What happened? The neocons and “humanitarian interventionists” lied. Just as they lied about Libya, Iraq, and so on.
While it was mostly ignored by the mainstream media, just this week a Christian was elected speaker of the Syrian parliament. The new speaker is a 58-year-old Orthodox Christian law graduate and member of President Assad’s Baath party.
How many Christians does our “ally” Saudi Arabia have in its parliament? Oh I forgot, Saudi Arabia has no elected parliament.
Why does it seem that US policy in the Middle East always hurts Christians the most? In Iraq, Christians suffered disproportionately from the 2003 US invasion. In fact there are hardly any Christians left. Why aren’t more US Christian groups demanding that the US get out of the Middle East?
The US is not about to leave on its own. With ISIS all but defeated in Syria, many in Washington are calling for the US military to continue its illegal occupation of parts of the country to protect against Iranian influence! Of course before the US military actions in Iraq and Syria there was far less Iranian influence in the region! So US foreign interventionism is producing new problems that can only be solved by more US interventionism? The military industrial complex could not have dreamed of a better scheme to rob the American people while enriching themselves!
What have we achieved in Syria? Nothing good.

US astrophysicists Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne have been awarded the Nobel Physics Prize for their pioneering role in the detection of gravitational waves.
Predicted by Albert Einstein more than 100 years ago as part of his theory of general relativity, but only detected in 2015, gravitational waves are “ripples” in the fabric of space-time caused by violent processes such as colliding black holes or the collapse of stellar cores.
Scientists say the detection of gravitational waves will open a new window on the universe.
“This is something completely new and different, opening up unseen worlds,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement announcing the winners of the nine million Swedish crown ($1.1 million) award.
“A wealth of discoveries awaits those who succeed in capturing the waves and interpreting their message.”
Weiss won half the prize, with Barish and Thorne sharing the other half.

The three scientists co-created the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) at the prestigious California Institute of Technology, which has taken home 18 Nobels since the prizes were first awarded in 1901.
The first-ever direct observation of gravitational waves was made in September 2015 at LIGO, the result of an event some 1.3 billion light-years away.
Since then, the enigmatic ripples have been detected three more times: twice more by LIGO and once by the Virgo detector located at the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) in Cascina, Italy.
“Gravitational waves spread at the speed of light, filling the Universe, as Albert Einstein described in his general theory of relativity. They are always created when a mass accelerates, like when an ice-skater pirouettes or a pair of black holes rotate around each other,” the Nobel jury said.
“Einstein was convinced it would never be possible to measure them. The LIGO project’s achievement was using a pair of gigantic laser interferometers to measure a change thousands of times smaller than an atomic nucleus, as the gravitational wave passed the Earth.”
Physics is the second of this year’s crop of Nobel Prizes and comes after Americans Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine on Monday.
The prizes for achievements in science, literature and peace were first awarded in 1901 in accordance with the will of Swedish business tycoon Alfred Nobel, who bequeathed much of the fortune he generated from his discovery of dynamite.
Among the science prizes, physics has often taken centre stage with laureates including scientific super stars such as Einstein, Niels Bohr and Marie Curie, one of only two women to win a Nobel Prize for Physics.

And this is one of the reasons why our homes in BC, mostly Vancouver and Victoria, cost around one million dollars!
“This is huge.”
Nearly two years after we first observed that Vancouver‘s soaring real estate market is nothing but a bubbling melange of criminal Chinese oligarch “hot money”, desperate to get parked offshore in any piece of real estate, but mostly in British Columbia regardless of price, a new multi-year investigation has uncovered extensive links – including money laundering and underground banking – between China’s criminal underworld and British Columbia drug and casino cash and VIPs, as well as their connections to China, Macau and the notorious triads.
In retrospect, and as many suspected, it appears that much of the B.C. real estate bubble can be explained as nothing more than the “layering” and “integration” aspect of a giant money laundering scheme involving billions of dollars of Chinese hot money and the criminals behind it.
Here is Postmedia’s real estate reporter Sam Cooper reporting on and explaining how British Columbia casinos are used to launder millions in drug cash.
* * *
On Oct. 15, 2015, a Mountie burst through the front door of an office in Richmond, carrying a battering ram and with a rifle slung on his back. The door swung shut behind him, locking him inside. He was in the lobby of Silver International Investment, a high-end money transfer business, surrounded by bulletproof glass. Behind a second glass door, a woman rushed to make a call while hiding several cellphones. Under her desk was a safe stuffed with bundles of cash. The Mountie, a large man, counted seconds anxiously, wondering if the woman would unlock the interior door.
It was one of 10 police raids in Richmond that day — part of a major investigation that has uncovered massive money laundering and underground banking networks with links to Mainland China, Macau and B.C. casinos, allege the RCMP’s federal organized crime unit and China’s national police service.
Postmedia has spent six months looking into the case, involving freedom of information requests for thousands of documents and dozens of interviews with government and law enforcement sources that were not authorized to be identified. Now, the inside story can be told of the investigations that led B.C.’s attorney general last week to order an independent review of casinos overseen by the B.C. Lottery Corp.
In late August, at a Vancouver conference attended by U.S. and Canadian law enforcement officials, RCMP Insp. Bruce Ward outlined the details of E-Pirate, the investigation into Silver International, Asian organized crime groups, and an alleged $500-million-plus international money laundering service run from Richmond. Central to the money laundering probe, allege B.C. government documents, is suspect Paul King Jin, a 50-year-old Richmond spa owner.
BCLC and B.C. gaming policy enforcement branch documents say that information revealed by the RCMP’s investigation into Jin and Silver led them to suspect the funds are tied to “transnational drug trafficking … (that) could have a potentially devastating impact on the casino industry.” Jin allegedly helped ultra-wealthy Mainland China “whale” gamblers, recruited in Macau, to gamble in B.C., the investigation documents allege.
The Macau whales were able to gamble with suspected drug cash supplied by Jin’s network, especially at River Rock Casino, the investigation documents allege. With those funds borrowed from Jin and “private lenders,” they were not only able to gamble, but to develop real estate in B.C.
Without naming names, a paragraph in the confidential MNP LLP audit of B.C. Lottery Corp. that the attorney general released last week describes underground banking channels that allowed “Chinese nationals” to evade China’s tight capital controls and transfer wealth into B.C.
Investigators learned the Chinese whale gamblers were “provided with a contact in Vancouver, either locally or prior to arriving in Vancouver,” the MNP report says. Next, the gamblers would “contact the person via phone for cash delivery,” which they use to buy chips at a casino. The gamblers would repay these funds “through cash holdings in China.” When the gamblers cash out, they are left with money available for use in Canada.
At the anti-money-laundering conference in late August, the RCMP’s Ward used security videos seized from Silver International’s office, in a multi-storey business complex in the 5800-block of Cooney Road, to explain Silver’s operations. Ward walked conference attendees through a security video that showed the Mountie attempting to enter Silver’s office.
“This lady is the primary target, she returns to her desk, she is hiding her three cellphones and calls someone,” Ward said. “Meanwhile there is a very anxious police officer counting the seconds, waiting to be let in.”
The woman allowed the Mountie and additional officers to enter Silver’s inner sanctum, and what they found could lead to one of the most significant money laundering cases ever in Canada, police say. Ward said Silver was so diligent in recording transactions, and its security system videos are so revealing that Mounties believe they are able to clear a difficult hurdle for Canadian law enforcement: proving that laundered money is directly connected to a “predicate” crime, in this case, drug-trafficking.
In the E-Pirate raids, RCMP seized 132 computers and cellphones, yielding 30 terabytes in data. If all that digital evidence were printed on paper, it would fill almost three million thick telephone books. And ledgers suggest that in only one year, Silver laundered $220 million in cash in B.C., and sent over $300 million offshore, according to Ward.
“This is huge,” one police officer, who was not authorized to be identified, said of the case’s expected impact. “This could change money laundering in B.C.”
In the raid on Silver International’s office on Cooney Road, civil forfeiture documents allege, Mounties seized over $2 million in mostly $20 bills, plus ledgers and daily transaction records. The claim also alleges that two people identified entering the Silver office were later stopped by Mounties on Highway 5 in Merritt, driving a car with $1 million in suspected drug cash stuffed into two suitcases in the trunk.
On Wednesday, Zachary Ng, a lawyer for Jin, told Postmedia he would “convey” requests for comment on E-Pirate allegations to Jin. But Ng said he could not immediately comment. Matthew Nathanson, lawyer for Silver International Investments, said: “I don’t have any comment on this matter.”
To understand Silver’s network, law enforcement had to understand the nature of organized crime in Richmond and Mainland China, which operates “parallel” to the Chinese business community, according to Ward.
“Any given gangster, if you want to call them that, businessman, will have many schemes and thus many networks, and this networking is what facilitated the business,” Ward said. “Because they were able to start a profession of money laundering … to all their friends in drug dealing, who needed the service of converting cash into bankable instruments.”
Ward said Silver International and Jin’s alleged network had many facets, but the main business stemmed from funding the “whale” gamblers, who gambled both in B.C. legal casinos, and illegal gaming houses set up in rural Richmond.
“Part of what we found, is they had two ongoing illegal casinos where the same businessmen who are part of the conspiracy were able to provide non-legal gambling for these offshore gamblers,” Ward told conference attendees. Describing the unimaginable wealth of these Chinese gamblers, Ward said that each man typically gambled between $100,000 and $1 million on a weekend visit to the Lower Mainland. The RCMP’s investigation started with surveillance of gambling and cash drops at River Rock Casino, which led to Silver International’s cash house.
“The primary target that led us there, was a person that is involved in generating ‘whales’ … these high-end gamblers,” Ward said. “His expertise is going over and working in Macau, identifying rich Chinese businessmen that would go to Macau, and he was attracting them to Canada, to gamble. He would use Silver International as a bank account.”
Describing a typical delivery, Ward said: “They would put $100,000 into a hockey bag, show up at the casino, and give (the VIP gambler) $100,000 … the loaning out would go to Chinese offshore gamblers coming into Canada.” Ward said Canadian residents were also loaned cash from Silver in “loan sharking” operations. And Lower Mainland wire transfer businesses were also funded with suspected drug money.
“The extra cash they had would end up in money exchanges, to wire money around the world.”
According to B.C. Lottery Corp. documents, anti-money-laundering investigators identified Paul King Jin in 2012, and these investigators collaborated with B.C. law enforcement to identify Jin’s alleged network, and about 36 gamblers believed to have received criminal cash to buy chips in B.C. casinos.
A suspicious-transaction report filed in 2014 by B.C. Lottery Corp. to Fintrac, Canada’s anti-money laundering agency, says Jin “has been identified as one of the main cash facilitators in the Lower Mainland for casino VIP patrons.” From 2012 to 2014 Jin logged 50 large cash transactions and at least $1.24 million in cash buy-ins, the report says. Jin has been banned from all B.C. casinos for five years, according to the Fintrac report, because of an “extensive history of suspicious incidents.”
BCLC investigators found that Jin and “numerous other people” believed to be working for him were discovered delivering “large amounts of bundled $20 bills” to “known VIP players with … considerable wealth with mostly Asian-based businesses.”
When Jin was barred from casino properties, he continued delivering cash to VIPs, but in parking lots outside or nearby casinos, the Fintrac report alleges.
“Jin was also recently brought to the attention of BCLC by law enforcement agencies that are working with BCLC to identify patrons that are involved in known criminal organizations in B.C.,” the 2014 Fintrac report says. “BCLC is actively working with the RCMP gang unit.”
Jin does not have a criminal record, but has been found guilty of a number of city bylaw infractions. In 2011, Richmond cancelled the licence for Jin’s spa, The Water Club, after RCMP visits. Directors of the club were from Mainland China, Mayor Malcolm Brodie’s council was told. Brodie’s council had access to a report from a Richmond RCMP officer, who noted that in police visits to Jin’s club: “Members later confirmed that high level drug traffickers were inside getting ‘foot massages’ … it is suspected that Jin was meeting with members who are associated to drugs and violence.”
In his E-Pirate presentation in late August, Ward said RCMP surveillance identified 40 different organizations linked to Asian organized groups dealing cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Gangsters or their couriers were delivering “suitcases laden with cash” to Silver International’s cash house, allegedly at an average rate of $1.5 million a day.
At Silver, dealers could drop off $100,000 in cash in a suitcase, Ward said, and within minutes a credit for $95,000 would appear in a Chinese bank, after a five per cent fee taken for the laundering and transfer service. Using an alleged transaction from Silver’s security tapes as an example, Ward explained.
“This is a typical event, of a drug dealer bringing in cash. She receives a call, and she goes out to receive a trusted customer … the vast majority is $20s,” Ward said. “The relationship is such, and trusted, that the phone call is made, ‘I’m coming in with $1.4 million,’ and the staff will wire transfer the credit for that in China, before the cash even comes in the door.”
Ward alleged Silver got so sophisticated that it evolved into an operation that could wire funds to Mexico and Peru, allowing drug dealers to buy narcotics without carrying cash outside Canada, and cover up the international money transfers with fake trade invoices from China.
“They facilitated drug trafficking and moved money from it around the world,” Ward said, pointing to slides of transaction records captured in the E-Pirate raids. “This is a typical request, a direction from Silver International to move money from their own account to a drug dealer’s account. We saw evidence of over 600 (bank) accounts in China that were controlled or fed by Silver International. Chinese police have followed up, and they have labelled this a massive underground banking system.” RCMP seized over $9 million, including millions in cash during E-Pirate, and are trying to seize about $4 million in assets, Ward said.
Mountie lab technicians considered themselves lucky the cash seizures in 2015 took place before B.C.’s deadly fentanyl crisis hit, Ward said, since drug cash handled in Vancouver now is often dangerous, covered in traces of fentanyl dust.
Sources in B.C. government and federal law enforcement say it is believed Jin’s network and the Chinese VIP gamblers allegedly funded by Silver International own many luxury properties in the Lower Mainland. But it’s difficult for Canadian governments to seize assets believed to be directly connected to crime.
“It is very difficult nowadays to say, ‘OK, that house that is being used as a casino is an illegal residence, so let’s seize it,” Ward said. “But who owns it? We are finding now, not only one layer of nominees, but two, three and four. And some of those nominees live in China. And they are either related to you, or they don’t even know they are owners. So for many of the properties, we just had to walk away.”
CIVIL ACTION LAUNCHED
A civil forfeiture action against Silver International Investment and two men, Andy Kai Wai Cheung and Yong Li Chen, was launched in August 2015. The action states the men were witnessed by RCMP surveillance among a number of the people entering Silver’s office with suitcases.
RCMP later stopped a rented Chevrolet Malibu with Alberta plates on Highway 5 in Merritt. In the car were Cheung, who has a criminal record in the United States for conspiring to import ecstasy, and Chen. In the trunk, the claim alleges, was a black suitcase holding $349,950 split into 35 bundles of $10,000. And in a hard shell suitcase was $649,560 in vacuum-sealed bags. The cash indicated ‘positive’ for drug residue, the claim states, and was “bundled in elastic bands and shrink-wrapped in a manner consistent with drug trafficking.”
Silver International has stated it has no connection to the cash, and Cheung and Chen deny any wrongdoing. The action continues.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those killed or injured in the Las Vegas shooting, and in a nation where so many anti-Americans are kneeling in pampered protest, this mass shooting saw veterans and police officers standing up, helping the victims and heading straight for the shooter to take him out. Real Americans don’t kneel, they stand and get to work to save lives. Today I offer tremendous gratitude to all the first responders who helped save lives and stop the violence.
Although the news reporting on this shooting is still in its early stages, there are five strange things that just don’t add up about this massacre (so far). I run through them below.
Although law enforcement says there was only one shooter, multiple witnesses are openly reporting the presence of multiple shooters. This could reasonably be the result of confusion and chaos, but it’s also highly suspicious that the shooter had “full auto” weapon which is usually limited to law enforcement or military personnel.
This question about multiple shooters was also raised after the Aurora, Colorado “Batman movie theater” shooting, in which numerous witnesses reported the presence of multiple shooters.
If this shooting was carried out by multiple shooters, it would obviously indicate planning and coordination among a group of people who sought to carry out the shooting for a political purpose of some kind.
Via the UK Express:
One woman, who was at the Route 91 music event, claimed an unidentified woman had told other concert-goers they were “all going to die” after pushing her way to the front of the venue.
The witness, 21, told local news: “She had been messing with a lady in front of her and telling her she was going to die, that we were all going to die.
“They escorted her out to make her stop messing around with all the other people, but none of us knew it was going to be serious.”
She described the lady as Hispanic. The lady was escorted from the venue along with a man.
The unnamed witness, who was attending the event on her 21st birthday, described the pair as short, both around 5 ft 5ins to 5ft 6ins tall, and looked like “everyday people”.
It’s clear that neither of these two people were the shooter, as the shooter is a much taller Caucasian man. Thus, this is not a “lone gunman” massacre. There was coordination. At least three people were aware this shooting was about to take place.
The multitude of videos that captured the event clearly indicate that at least one shooter was running a full auto weapons system. Such weapons are almost impossible for “civilians” to acquire. Although some pre-1986 full auto weapons are available for sale, they require extensive ATF documentation, background checks and extremely long wait periods approaching one year. Plus, they tend to cost $25,000 or more, and they’re extremely rare.
Full auto weapons, however, are widely owned by police officers, federal officials and military organizations. It will be very interesting to find out where this weapon came from and how it was acquired.
Numerous reports from witnesses who were on the scene reveal that nearly all the exits were blocked. One witness described the situation as “being caught like a rat in a maze” with numerous “dead ends.”
Why were nearly all the exits blocked? In essence, the concert created a kill zone that amplified the casualties. So far, according to the Clark County Sheriff in Vegas, 515 people have been injured and 59 people have so far died. These are unthinkable numbers, approaching war-time casualty counts. It’s clear from the coverage that this shockingly high body count would not have been possible if people had been free to flee the concert venue.
In essence, the concert trapped the people, preventing them from escaping, and denying them the ability to seek cover. From there, sustained, full-auto gunfire is almost impossible to survive.
From Fox News, a caller named Russell Bleck, who survived the shooting, said live on air, “There were ten-foot walls blocking us in. We couldn’t escape. It was just a massacre. We had nowhere to go.”
In addition, once the shooting started, the stage lights were turned to the crowd, lighting up the crowd and making them an easier target for the shooter(s). Was this deliberate?
According to news reports, the shooter — identified as Stephen Paddock — had as many as 10 firearms in his room, including several rifles. If he was the only shooter, what’s the point of having so many rifles? One man can obviously only shoot one rifle, and since he had a full auto rifle, he could obviously achieve his evil aims by focusing on his one rifle. There was no need for him to have multiple rifles.
So were the other rifles brought to the room to “stage” the crime scene with an abundance of guns? Why would one elderly man bother to carry 8 – 10 weapons to a hotel room in the first place? That’s a lot of work. Rifles aren’t lightweight devices.
I find the idea that a lone, elderly man would carry so many rifles to a hotel room for no practical reason to be highly suspicious. It makes no sense at all.
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.
“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.
“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added. (Reporting by Ali Abdelaty; Writing by Arwa Gaballa; Editing by Ahmed Aboulenein)
Pray for all the victims of this event. More coverage is found on the following websites:

Things are happening fast and furious now, just as I anticipated they would. I mentioned in earlier blog posts my tiny visions of the dates, September 4th and February 3rd.
I now understand that September 4th represented a sort of watershed date, around which time the pace of major world events seemed to dramatically accelerate — terribly destructive hurricanes in the Caribbean and the USSA, major earthquakes in Mexico, horrific flooding in Asia, threats of nuclear warfare between North Korea and the USSA, and more. Given all that has happened over the last month or so, God only knows what to expect as we move through the coming months to the first days of February.
But I fully expect more chaos. Why?
Very simple. The USSA/NATO/Zio-NAZI Empire is dying and like all dying dinosaurs, it is lashing out in its death throes. As it sees the end approaching it uses every dirty trick in its reptilian arsenal to try to retain the supremacy to which it has grown accustomed.
Yesterday’s Catalonia Secession Referendum
Yesterday, the Catalonians in the northeast region of Spain overwhelmingly voted, by 89%, to secede from Spain and become independent.
But the vote took place under real duress, as Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy sent in squads of national police to brutally beat Catalonian voters in a desperate bid to try to suppress the vote. The neo-fascist, police tactics failed, however, and the Catalonians resoundingly rejected continued rule by Madrid.
Rajoy is a real SOB, but then a lot of politicians are. His considerable arrogance is exceeded only by his even more impressive stupidity. He can be reliably depended on to make further, dumb, neo-fascist blunders.
If he rolls out the tanks it will seal Madrid’s defeat, with a time lag of some duration. It remains to be seen what the next steps will be.
But I don’t think the Catalonians will just go away quietly into the night. They have their backs up now, and bolstered by an 89% vote for secession, at the least they will want regional autonomy, if not outright independence from Madrid. This is a real big deal for Catalonia, for Spain and beyond.
Not least for the European Union. What happens if Catalonia secedes from Spain and then Flanders wants free of Belgium, Scotland wants rid of the United Kingdom, the Basques request their own Pyrenean country, Transdniestria and Corsica demand to be recognized as sovereign states, and on and on. Where would it end? Suppose the Bavarians were to declare their disgust with Berlin’s policies and vote to secede from Germany?
What if the secessionist sentiment were to cross the Atlantic and fire up secessionist movements in Texas and Hawai’i and Vermont and California? I mention these USSA states because in recent times there have been secessionist movements in all of those states, as well as some others, such as Alaska and Montana. Think of it. If states start seceding and are permitted to leave, then before you know it — there might not be a USSA anymore. If enough states started seceding it could just wither away and fall apart, like the Soviet Union did more than 25 years ago.
There would be no national anthem anymore, no pledge of allegiance to the flag, no Washington, DC, no Pentagon, no CIA, no FBI, no IRS, no Federal Reserve Bank (and hence no Federal Reserve Note).
Why, a genuine secession movement would, therefore, directly imply the extinction of the USSA’s Deep State!
Cue the Deep State False Flag Massacre in Las Vegas
Before the news of the bold, Catalonian secessionist vote was more than a few hours old, the global news cycle was overwhelmed with news of the horrific slaughter in Las Vegas, Nevada.
You see how that works? Can’t have people in Texas drawing any dangerous conclusions about voting for secession from Washington, DC, to cite but one of many possible examples.
So the overwhelming Catalonian vote to secede from Spain was swept right out of the global news cycle before the night was out.
A lot of these mass shootings are MK-Ultra affairs. The alphabet soup agencies have an endless supply of disposable, mind-controlled assassins. ISIS is part of that picture, as is any violent group that can be used by the alphabet soup agencies.
I have watched several of the YouTube videos of the gunfire in Las Vegas and listened carefully to the sound tracks. To my ear it sounds as if there were at least two, and maybe three shooters — I hear automatic rifles and also a heavy machine gun, with hundreds of shots.
We are being told that a lone, deranged gunman is responsible for this massacre, but I doubt it. There are so many discrepancies in the news stories coming out of the various government agencies and news media sources that just don’t add up.
Topping it all off, the alleged gunman is — wait for it! — conveniently dead. So he cannot tell us anything. We don’t even know that the gunshots came from the hotel room that the police have identified as the originating point of the gunfire.
Multiple agendas are being served by this massacre: 1) move the Catalonian secession vote out of the global news cycle ASAP; 2) whip the public in the USSA into a high state of emotional anxiety; 3) brutalize the public psyche in the run up to war against Iran, North Korea, Russia and possibly Syria; 4) advance the plans for overt martial law in the USSA under the guise of “protecting” the people against mass violence; 5) further polarize and divide the public in the USSA along racial and political lines for purposes of social control.
Bottom line: I absolutely do not believe the “official” story on what happened in Las Vegas. I believe the alphabet soup agencies were involved, and that just like the President Kennedy assassination in Dealy Plaza in Dallas, Texas in 1963, that there was more than one shooter involved. There are plenty of trained assassins and psychopathic killers in the employ of the Pentagon, CIA and other alphabet soup agencies. The CIA and Pentagon have killed numerous millions of people in other countries over the years, so what is to stop them from shooting people in the USSA itself? Nothing, absolutely nothing. My best guess is that is what we are looking at in Las Vegas. The dead man that the police have fingered may well be a patsy, set up to take the fall posthumously for a crime in which he may not even have participated, just like Lee Harvey Oswald was set up and killed by the Feds and the Dallas police department in 1963.
I mean, for Christ’s sake, how do you lug a bunch of automatic rifles and an actual, heavy machine gun and ammunition belts up into a hotel room on the 32nd floor without being noticed? It doesn’t add up.
The Plain Meaning of the Las Vegas Slaughter
The gloves have come off, and things are getting nasty. It looks like the Deep State has declared open warfare on the people of the USSA. Do you feel like you owe “allegiance” to the flag, or the national anthem, or the government in Washington, DC?
Silly you! The Feds will mow you down in a minute if it suits their plans for imperial, global control. You’re just a slave to them, to be manipulated, lied to, taxed extortionately and even killed at their whim, if they perceive that your death advances their agenda of total control.
It will be very bumpy from now on. Among other things, the USSA is preparing for shooting war with North Korea, Russia and Iran and has already initiated limited, low level combat with Russian units in Syria. The current geopolitical trajectory cannot possibly end well for anyone, but demons and monsters are driving the train, so get ready, that’s all I can say.
The Event Horizon is now hard upon us and will be with us for some years to come. Those who make it out the other side will do the best they can with what remains.
For those of you who still harbor illusions and delusions as to the “goodness” and “benevolence” of the USSA, just wake yourselves up, if you can.
And if you persist in your feel good, red-white-and-blue folly, oh well … there’s another sucker born every day.

Catherine Austin Fitts issued an updated report on Missing Money. She found a total of $21 trillion went missing from two federal agencies since 1988. That would be from HUD (Housing and Urban Development) and DOD (Department of Defense.) She was assisted by Dr Mark Skidmore and his graduate students who found these staggering sums went walkabout citing government sources. Dr Skidmore is also a co-editor of the Journal of Urban Affairs.
The government speak term for missing money is Undocumentable Adjustments.
In some years more money went missing from an agency than was budgeted for the year. How was that possible?
Catherine used to be Housing Commissioner in the first Bush administration. She found one city block in San Diego that had $20 million in defaulted HUD loans. These loans were made by HUD on non-existent properties that did not even have US postal addresses. She concluded that HUD was being run as a criminal enterprise. Many other researchers have come to the same conclusion: the American government is run by criminals who own the Republican and Democratic parties. Obviously, they also own the corporate media.

There are other departments with losses but they are not covered in the reports by Dr Skidmore. Indira Singh said that money was being stolen by the tens of billions from Social Security.
There have been no arrests of those persons who have been stealing money by the trillions because they own the courts, the police, the press, the Foundations and the politicians. There can never be arrests until we seize the government.
The video below is an interview with Catherine Austin Fitts in which she discusses the revised figure of $21 trillion in missing money.
I have not written much of late. I have said all I need to say to convince rational and honest people to seize control of the government. If they don’t, the people who think they own the government will get us all killed.
But there are a few developments I should point out.
Iran is mass producing Mach 13 and Mach 14 missiles. They licensed the technology from Russia. Hezbollah has underground manufacturing plants mass producing missiles, drones and small arms.
Putin had been restraining his transfer of technology to Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, but he has opened the flood gates. Why? I believe he realized that the criminals who run America are psychopaths. He wants the next war to be over quickly and the outcome to be decisively in his favor. The US has no defense against any missile faster than Mach 10. The Washington War Game is over. Hopefully, the professionals in the US military will not follow the Pentagon brass off a cliff. You might remember that Obama had threatened to bomb Syria back to the Stone Age but professional officers and enlisted men said No. They did not join the US military to fight for Al Qaeda.
There are lots of professional money managers with proven track records who tell us that the stock and bond markets are about to collapse. I agree with them. Many professionals have concluded that the Petrodollar is dead and that the purchasing power of our wages, savings and pensions will soon be cut in half. As I said many times before, we will have Nationwide Food Riots in America unless we have Debt Cancellation and monetary reform.
I have been investigating the possibility of the world transitioning into a Mini Ice Age over the next couple of years. One well researched source says this could start in winter 2019 and last until 2034 or later. A few billion people could die. We have always had mass die offs during previous cooling periods. We won’t have cities in America and Americans will need to relocate to a rural area well below the 40th parallel. That is the Kansas-Nebraska border. I will tell you when I relocate to a farming community.
I have been investigating the works of Dr Elaine Ingham on soil biology. She once raised crops in an area that had suffered a drought for 27 years. Mycorrhizal fungi bring water and nutrients to a plant’s roots from several feet away. Soil biology needs a minimum temperature of 53 degrees Fahrenheit to function. When it gets cold, the crops die except for broccoli which does not use fungi to gather its water and nutrients. I am looking into greenhouses and alternative energy. I am not interested in solar energy if we have a Mini Ice Age while suffering from increased volcanic activity.
There are solutions. We could end this current Depression by cancelling Unpayable Debts as the kings of ancient Sumer did some 4,400 years ago. Read the following:
Debt Cancellation Is The Best Way To Take Down Bilderberg
The present government would never permit reform even if millions of Americans starved to death. But they could demand martial law. If we do get martial law, the next logical step would be for the US military to seize control though a coup by junior officers that changes things so they don’t have to shoot a few million of their fellow citizens. Please remember that Americans own 350 million guns and 10 billion bullets so no military man would like to stand between Wall Street’s stolen money and tens of millions of Americans who cannot afford to feed their children. I would suggest the coup leaders adopt a non-interest bearing currency like President Lincoln’s Greenbacks and that they ban fractional reserve banking.
How And Why An American Military Coup Could Save The World
A sixth mass extinction may already be baked in, unless carbon dioxide emissions are curtailed dramatically before the end of the century.
The amount of carbon dioxide that humans will have released into the atmosphere by 2100 may be enough to trigger a sixth mass extinction, a new study suggests.
The huge spike in CO2 levels over the past century may put the world dangerously close to a “threshold of catastrophe,” after which environmental instability and mass die-offs become inevitable, the new mathematical analysis finds.
Even if a mass extinction is in the cards, however, it likely wouldn’t be evident immediately. Rather, the process could take 10,000 years to play out, said study co-author Daniel Rothman, a geophysicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

However, slashing carbon emissions dramatically in the coming years may also be enough to prevent such global catastrophe, said Lee Kump, a geoscientist at Pennsylvania State University who was not involved in the study.
Over Earth’s 4.5-billion-year history, life has seen a lot of boom and bust times. In the past half-billion years alone, five major extinctions have wiped out huge swaths of life: the Ordovician-Silurian mass extinction, the Late Devonian mass extinction, the Permian mass extinction, the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction and the Cretaceous-Tertiary mass extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs. The most severe was the Permian extinction, or “The Great Dying,” when over 95 percent of marine life and 70 percent of land-based life died off.
All these major extinctions have one similarity.
“Every time there’s been a major mass extinction — one of the big five — there’s been a serious disruption of the global carbon cycle,” Rothman said. It could be a direct link between CO2 and death due ocean acidification or an indirect link, as carbon dioxide emissions can warm a planet to unlivable temperatures and have even been linked with volcanic eruptions and the related cooling of the atmosphere.
