UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Ready to Kill a Million People

DISGUSTING NIKKI HALEY, ISRAELI STOOGE.

Libertarian Daniel McAdams asks why President Trump would place a bloodthirsty neocon who hates his guts in the UN as U.S. Ambassador.

Why indeed?

Lew Rockwell

There must be something about being named US Ambassador to the UN that brings out the inner mass murderer in people. Madeline Albright famously admitted that she thought 500,000 dead Iraqi children due to US sanctions was “worth it.” John Bolton never met a disagreement he didn’t want to turn into a war. Samantha Power barked about human rights while her Administration’s drones snuffed out human life in unprecedented numbers. The real “butcher of the Balkans” Richard Holbrooke sold the Yugoslavia war on lies. John “Death Squad” Negroponte sold the lie that Saddam Hussein needed to be killed and his country destroyed for democracy to flourish, and so on.

Considering how many millions of civilians have been killed on the war propaganda of US ambassadors to the UN, perhaps the equivalent of another Holocaust could have been avoided if Ron Paul’s HR 1146 has passed 30 years ago.

But nothing could have prepared us for Nikki “Holocaust” Haley, who has thundered into the Trump Administration as US Ambassador to the UN despite hating Trump and Trump hating her. Why would President Trump pick someone for such an influential position despite her being vocally and publicly opposed to the foreign policy that provided the margin of victory for him? We can only guess. Was Trump lying on the campaign trail? Possibly. Does he not bother to notice that he has surrounded himself with people who are deeply opposed, at the DNA level, to the policies he ran and won on? Seems more likely. As Johnny Rotten famously ended the Sex Pistols run, “ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

In fact yes. One-time top Trump supporter Ann Coulter today Tweeted the question “is there anyone out there left who doesn’t want Trump impeached?”

Coulter meant the wall or something else, but she could just as well have been complaining about the foreign policy about-face. Trump ran as a Ron Paul Republican, he governs as a George W. Bush Republican. Cheated? Yes, once again.

Which brings us back to the odious Nikki Haley. Today she no doubt thought she was being clever Tweeting in response to the predictable fact that yet another round of sanctions against North Korea did not result in Kim Jong-Un doing a Gaddafi suicide knife dance, that since the sanctions destroying the North Korean economy — such as it is — have not resulted in Kim’s surrender it was time to hand the matter over to Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Said US top UN diplomat Nikki: “We cut 90% of trade & 30% of oil. I have no problem kicking it to Gen. Mattis because I think he has plenty of options.”We killed their trade, we destroyed their oil imports and still they have the nerve to defy us and not surrender…so time for World War Three! That’s Nikki. No foreign policy experience beyond the fetid breath of the neocon “experts” whispering in her all-too-willing ear.

But Nikki was not done today. After threatening a war on North Korea that would likely leave ten or more thousand US troops dead, hundreds of thousands of South Korean civilians dead, and maybe another million North Koreans dead, she decided to opine on the utterly failed six year US regime change operation in Syria. Today, as Deir Ezzor has finally been liberated by the Syrian government from the scourge of ISIS, Nikki Haley chose to go on record defending ISIS and al-Qaeda by repeating Obama’s line that Assad must go.

Ponder this for a minute: Assad has just defeated ISIS in Deir Ezzor. ISIS is the reason the US has invaded Syrian sovereignty and initiated military action. Yet according to Nikki Haley Assad’s reward for wiping out ISIS is that he must be deposed — presumably in favor of US-backed rebels who have been in bed with ISIS for six years!

Is Nikki Haley pro-ISIS? Is she pro-al-Qaeda? Is she evil or just stupid?

You decide.

But if she is not removed from office soon, she will be leading perhaps a million people to their graves.

She’s both stupid and evil. It’s pathetic to think that her blunders and bullying could lead to World War III.

Jimmy Carter: “I know what North Korea wants.”

Former American president Jimmy Carter doesn’t have a particularly stellar record in conducting foreign policy. He seems to be unable to break out of his Christian mindset long enough to recognize that there’s evil in the world that has to be dealt with harshly.

Since he’s offering advice about what to do with North Korea, let me briefly summarize my theory. Kim Jong Un is a CIA agent, constantly stirring up trouble in order to justify the huge American military presence in the Far East. I like to think of Kim as an actor playing a role in a Bond movie. If Kim did not exist, we’d have to create him. He’s great for the military-industrial complex budget.

Getting back to Carter, he claims the U.S. is an oligarchy, which there’s plenty of evidence to believe is true. However, Carter won’t name the (((oligarchs.))) As a Christian, he must believe they are God’s chosen people and that lightening would strike him dead if he said something bad about the tribe.

Zerohedge

Former US President Jimmy Carter repeated his assertion that the US works more like an “oligarchy than a democracy,” while also lambasting Trump’s “hopeless” approach to the increasing tensions with North Korea.

The former president was speaking at a ‘Conversation with the Carters’ event at his Carter Center in Atlanta on Tuesday. AP reports that he said money in politics is what makes the US more like an oligarchy – run by a small group of rich people – rather than a democracy, repeating an allegation he has vociferously uttered for a few years [5].

“[Money in politics] violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system.

Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for President or being elected President. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and congress members.

So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over.”

Carter was referring to the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling to allow corporations to give unlimited campaign donations to political candidates, which he has previously said [6] was “the most stupid decision” the court had made.

But then the former President went to town on Trump and North Korea…

Carter said,

“The first thing I would do is treat the North Koreans with respect.”

“I know what the North Koreans want,” he said.

“What they want is a firm treaty guaranteeing North Korea that the US will not attack them or hurt them in any way, unless they attack one of their neighbors.” Carter said,

“But the United States has refused to do that.”

Carter said he would send his top person to Pyongyang immediately, adding:

“If I didn’t go myself.” The former president visited North Korea three times between 1994 and 2011.

“Until we’re willing to talk to them and treat them with respect as human beings, which they are, then I don’t think we’ll make any progress,” he said.

Paul Craig Roberts: Behold a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Death

We the people elected Donald Trump over warmonger Hillary Clinton in order to destroy ISIS and then pursue peace around the world.

Trump has apparently been co-opted by the (((Deep State))) into doing Israel’s bidding. Or, if you read yesterday’s post, he’s being drugged by forces within the White House.

There’s a very real danger that the Jewish neocons in charge of American foreign policy will deliberately lead us into a nuclear World War III that will destroy the world.

It’s puzzling that both China and Russia are kowtowing to America. Dr. Roberts wonders whether that’s out of fear or whether the two superpowers are planning something big while lulling America to sleep while apparently cooperating with Washington.

Condensed from Paul Craig Roberts

Two of America’s most populous states, Texas and Florida, are in hurricane ruins, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The US national debt is now over $20 trillion, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The entire world is helping Washington foment wars—including two targeted countries themselves—Russia and China—both of which are helping Washington foment more wars. Believe it or not, both Russia and China voted with Washington on the UN Security Council to impose more and harsher sanctions on North Korea, a country guilty of nothing but a desire to have the means to protect itself from the US and not become yet another Washington victim like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Serbia, and Ukraine overthrown in a US coup and now poverty-stricken.

I once thought that Russia and China were checks on Washington’s unilateralism, but apparently not. Both governments have been knuckled under by Washington and both voted to punish North Korea for striving to be sufficiently armed to protect its sovereignty from Washington.

Russia knows that it is surrounded by US nuclear and military bases. So does China. The question is: have Russia and China capitulated out of fear? Or is their cooperation with Washington a ruse while they prepare their own strike on Washington, or are the two misguided governments trying to cooperate with Washington a la sanctions so as to avoid having to confront a US military attack on North Korea?

It requires much competence to confront evil, and there is probably more evil in Washington than there is competence in Russia and China, two countries interested in being rich to an extent that it might cost them their sovereignty and existence.

When you see such potentially powerful countries as Russia and China collapse under Washington’s pressure in the UN Security Council, it makes you wonder if the various analyses of Washington’s many weaknesses are real, and if they are real, if Russia and China are aware of them.

How does one go about explaining why two countries, whose sovereignty is in the way of Washington’s world hegemony, help their known enemy bully yet another small country, especially one in their orbit of influence? How can Russia complain of sanctions against Russia based on nothing but Washington’s propaganda when Russia supports sanctions against North Korea based on Washington’s propaganda?

Russia and China are working hand-in-hand with Washington toward their own demise.

It is becoming biblical. Washington the anti-Christ is subverting all good on earth.

Behold, a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Washington.

During his campaign, Trump promised friendship with Russia and peace with the world. We have to hold his feet to the fire to see to it that the Generals he so admires (McMaster and Kelly) aren’t the only voices he hears.

NKorea Says Seriously Considering Plan to Strike Guam

You threaten us, then we threaten you. Repeat over and over.

In response to President Trump’s promise of “fire and fury” aimed at North Korea, the Norks have promised to strike the American territory of Guam.

Newsmax

North Korea said on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire and fury”.

A spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency, said the strike plan will be “put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment” once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.

In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the United States showed signs of provocation.

Trump warns North Korea will see ‘fire and fury’ if nuclear threats continue

There’s a fine line between going down in history as an appeaser like Neville Chamberlain (who probably got a bad rap from historians) and a warmonger like Winston Churchill or the evil John McCain.

President Donald Trump’s blustery style so far has not been marked by any major military action. His “fire and fury” words are making headlines around the globe, but his less inflamatory rhetoric suggests he’s willing to take a peaceful, cooperative approach with China and Russia as partners in reining in the little fat boy dictator of the North.

If peace is maintained, it will show that Trump is his own best propagandist.

By The Washington Post
President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a stern warning to North Korea, saying that if its threats to the United States continue, the outcast nation will be “met with the fire and the fury like the world has never seen.”

Trump’s comments came as North Korea spurned a new round of sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council and pledged to continue to press forward with development of nuclear weapons that could reach the U.S. mainland.

Appearing at an event at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, where Trump is on a 17-day “working vacation,” he said that “North Korea best not make any more threats of the United States.”

“They will be met with the fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump said.

The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, according to a confidential assessment by U.S. intelligence officials.

Trump’s warning on Tuesday further raises the stakes for the U.S. president and other world leaders, who face limited options in dealing with North Korea’s aggression.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump suggested on Twitter progress is being made with the cooperation of China and Russia, both of which supported the Security Council resolution offered by the United States over the weekend.

“After many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea,” Trump said. “We must be tough & decisive!”

Trump also used Twitter to amplify a Fox News report, based on anonymous sources, that U.S. spy satellites had detected North Korea loading two cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country’s coast in recent days.

Without adding any comment of his own, Trump, who regularly decries leaks to the media, retweeted to his more than 35 million followers a link to the day-old story, which was featured Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends,” a program on the Fox News network.

A White House spokesman did not respond to a question about whether Trump’s retweet amounted to a confirmation of Fox’s story, which was attributed to unnamed “U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region.”

Trump’s decision to disseminate the report came amid a larger push by the White House to call attention to the president’s efforts to contain North Korea’s military ambitions, including an unanimous vote by the United Nations Security Council over the weekend on a U.S.-sponsored resolution imposing tougher sanctions.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, according a confidential assessment by U.S. intelligence officials.

The report by Fox highlighted a far less significant threat than those posed than the long-range missiles, known as ICBMS, that have been central to escalating tensions in the region.

One intelligence official said that the report itself was insignificant and not a sign that North Korea was preparing to test a missile or make any other provocation. However, the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, was chagrined that Trump would retweet a report about “something unimportant” that nonetheless “reveals something about our surveillance capabilities.”

Trump, who receives daily intelligence briefings, including while on his current 17-day “working vacation” in Bedminster, would presumably be in a position to know whether U.S. intelligence officials have reason to believe Kim Jong Un’s regime in fact did load cruise missiles onto a patrol boat recently.

Asked about the report Tuesday morning on Fox, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said she couldn’t comment.

“I can’t talk about anything that’s classified, and if it’s in the newspaper, that’s a shame,” Haley said. “It’s incredibly dangerous when things go out to the press like that.”

There’s so much background that fake news leaves out of the story that Twitter and other alt sources are needed to put the story in its proper perspective.

Trump Praises Tough New U.N. Economic Sanctions on North Korea

KIM JONG UN MAY NOT BE SMILING ANYMORE.

Since previous sanctions have not prevented North Korea from testing missiles and nuclear bombs, there’s not much of a reason to expect that the new sanctions will achieve the desired result.

Furthermore, how much cash would the West be willing to pay Kim (and whoever is behind the scenes controlling him) if he would agree to stop the tests. He’s been paid before. Reasonable people would call it paying off a blackmailer.

But aside from all that, there’s the question of the American (((neocon))) policy makers desire for war with the North. Nothing seems to get done in the world today unless there’s a shekel or two for the Ashkenazim.

Sky News

The UN Security Council has unanimously backed a new resolution imposing fresh sanctions on North Korea in retaliation for its controversial nuclear programme.

Among the sweeping measures is an export ban aimed at depriving Pyongyang of $1bn (£767m) in annual revenue – around a third of its export earnings.

Kim Jong Un’s regime will be banned from selling coal, iron and iron ore, lead and lead ore, fish and seafood.

It will also be prevented from increasing the number of workers it sends overseas – whose earnings are another source of revenue for the regime.

President Trump said the move would have a “very big financial impact” on the reclusive state.

He tweeted: “United Nations Resolution is the single largest economic sanctions package ever on North Korea. Over one billion dollars in cost to N.K.”

The resolution will prohibit countries starting new joint ventures with the North and any fresh investment in current joint ventures.

Nine officials and the country’s main foreign exchange bank have also been added to the UN sanctions blacklist.

But there will not be the cuts to oil deliveries initially proposed by the US – a move which would have dealt a serious blow to the economy.

The Security Council has already imposed six rounds of sanctions that have failed to halt North Korea’s drive to improve its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons capabilities.

US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said penalties against the regime have now been taken “to a whole new level” and the Security Council had put the leader “on notice”.

She said: “This is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation.”

Meanwhile, UK ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, warned Kim Jong Un’s nuclear ambitions could be “catastrophic for the world”.

“North Korea bears full responsibility for the measures we have enacted,” he said.

“By acting in flagrant violation of its legal obligations, by going against the will of the Security Council expressed in countless resolutions, North Korea has chosen the path it now finds itself on.”

The US has been putting pressure on China, which accounts for 90% of the North’s trade, to enforce the sanctions.

The effectiveness of the new measures will be mostly down to whether Bejing cooperates.

Despite eventually backing the resolution, China and Russia had resisted the US clampdown – arguing dialogue with the North was the best way to persuade Pyongyang to halt its military ambitions.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he had urged his North Korean counterpart to abide by UN resolutions and end testing of missiles.

Netanyahu Decides to Purge Gaza Again, Cuts off Electricity to 2 Million People

Styx has a few radical ideas that the Jews won’t like.

I wish he would curse less, but it’s probably worth listening to his potty mouth to hear his unique “antisemitic” ideology.

Excerpt from Al Jazeera

Hundreds of Palestinians protested on Friday along Gaza’s borders with Israel, as international rights groups warned of a “total collapse” of basic services amid a steadily worsening electricity crisis.

The Gaza Strip is in the midst of an electricity shortage that has left its two million residents with just a few hours of power a day, turning many aspects of everyday life in the Hamas-ruled territory upside down and raising concerns about of a looming humanitarian crisis.

Earlier this week Israel reduced the amount of electricity it supplies to Gaza to about three hours a day after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abas cut electricity funding to the Israeli-besieged territory.

The move was widely seen as a move by Abbas to step up pressure on the rival Hamas movement.

The UN humanitarian coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territories, Robert Piper, warned the additional power cuts would have a disastrous affect.

This reduced supply, combined with peak demand during the Ramadan holiday season, has created rolling blackouts that give people just two to four hours of power at a time.

Residents must plan food purchases daily, as proper refrigeration is impossible. Hospitals are running on generators, and fuel is in short supply.
