  New Developments on Russia’s Use of Iran’s Hamadan Airbase


Stephen Lendman

Days earlier, Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehqhan gave Russia permission to use its Hamadan airbase against terrorists in Syria as long as needed.

“The decision will remain in place until there is no need in it,” he said. “Reception of Russian aircraft at the airbase in Hamadan is carried out in the framework of mutual cooperation and the fight against terrorism at the request of the Syrian government,” he explained.

For several days last week, Russia conducted large-scale strikes on ISIS and Nusra Front from the facility - destroying six command and control centers, five depots storing weapons, munitions and fuel, along with military equipment, causing heavy casualties at the same time.

  Pentagon Threatens to Down Russian and Syrian Planes

Stephen Lendman

Syrian land and airspace are sovereign state territory. No foreign power may deny its military or other aircraft from operating anywhere within its borders - or Russian planes and ground personnel invited by its government.

America and its rogue partners operate illegally in Syria. On the phony pretext of combating ISIS, they’re waging war on its government, terror-bombing selected targets, using terrorists called “moderate rebels” as imperial foot soldiers on the ground.

After a near confrontation between Syrian and US aircraft last week in territory where American special forces operate on the ground aiding terrorist fighters, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook outrageously said “(w)e would advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of those areas.”

In other words, don’t attack US-supported death squads killing Syrian civilian and military personnel.

  Washington Threatens Damascus

Stephen Lendman

Obama’s aim in launching war on Syria in March 2011 remains unchanged - regime change to transform its sovereign independence into another US vassal state.

Endless war continues, peace efforts stillborn because Washington rejects them. Incidents like the staged Aleppo boy stunt is the latest US effort to enlist public support for greater war on Syria than already.

Unknown numbers of US and other NATO special forces operate on the ground illegally in northern areas near Turkey’s border, aiding terrorist fighters - warning Russia and Syria to avoid bombing their positions.

On Thursday, US warplanes were scrambled on the phony pretext of protecting US-led NATO special forces from Syrian warplanes operating in the area without threatening them.

  Donald Trump Calls for a Special Prosecutor to Investigate Clinton’s Emails

Donald Trump intensified his calls for an investigation into his Democratic rival's emails, saying that a special prosecutor must take over the case. "After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewashed Hillary Clinton’s email crimes, they certainly cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s new crimes," Trump said. "The Justice Department is required to appoint an independent Special Prosecutor because it has proven itself to be really, sadly a political arm of the White House.”

  Lead Attorney In Anti-Clinton DNC Fraud Case Mysteriously Found Dead


John Ashe and Shawn Lucas

Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton they wind up dead. In fact, as we noted previously, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances. While Vince Foster remains the most infamous, the body count is starting to build ominously this election cycle - from the mysterious "crushing his own throat" death of a UN official John Ashe, to the latest death of an attorney who served the DNC with a fraud suit. As GatewayPundit's Jim Hoft reports, on July 3, 2016, Shawn Lucas and filmmaker Ricardo Villaba served the DNC Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz at DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the fraud class action suit against the Democrat Party on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters (this was before Wikileaks released documents proving the DNC was working against the Sanders campaign during the 2016 primary).

  Wellstone: They Killed Him

Video preview: They Killed Him October 25 marked the 10th anniversary of Wellstone's death. Was it accidental or an assassination to silence a sadly missed principled voice? Convincing evidence suggests foul play. More on that below. On October 25, 2002, The New York Times headlined "Minnesota Senator Is Among 8 Dead in Crash," saying: Wellstone "was killed today when his campaign plane crashed approaching a small airport in a wooded region in the northern part of his state." Campaigning for a third term, he "perished along with seven other people when the chartered King Air A100 went down near Eveleth around 10:20 a.m. Central Time, the Federal Aviation Administration reported."

  Trump Never Wanted This Job! Assassination attempts! Clinton Corruption! Economic Collapse! Expose!

ProjectClarity

"For many years, all the way back to 1980 Trump has said that he would only run for office if things became so bad that he felt he had no choice. The video shows the history of his reluctance to run. I found it very interesting when doing this research that Trump’s ideas on many issues have been the same for 30 years. I plan to do another video showing that. In the second part of the video Trump uses Stephen Miller to give the rapid fire picture of exactly how bad things have gotten and what he plans to do about it. Trump did not come to the decision to run easily. He is sacrificing a great deal, but now that he’s the nominee , he will deliver! Miller delivers one of the best speeches I have ever heard. A true American rally cry for the people to wakeup and fight the corruption at all levels of the government . Trump is well aware of how far the corruption has spread and is fearless in putting an end to it. His decision to finally run was a call to action. Trump is about to unleash hell on Hillary, Bill, and the traitors in the Congress. He has access to the evidence necessary to make things happen. Trump knows Comey wanted to indict and he is basically telling him that he NEEDS to obey the law! The NSA and FBI agents are starting to revolt. It is clear that Trump has some very powerful people giving him the intel he needs to bring Hillary down. With her added health issues now making MSM, I will be surprised if she makes it to the election. Information will continue to leak out about the extent of corruption involving Hillary and others until they all finally cut a deal, resign or end up in prison."

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III by Stephen Lendman

Synopsis by Clarity Press

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III provides insight into today's gravest geopolitical crisis since WW II. Possible global war looms. Viewed from the perspective of Western mainstream media, the crisis arose due to pro-democracy activists overturning a brutal dictatorship, which led swiftly to Russian incursion into Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Viewed from the perspective of the 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, it’s an entirely different story. Obama's pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. Neocon- dominated Washington seeks to marginalize its Russian and Chinese rivals, surrounding both countries with US bases. Ukraine is in the eye of the storm, the crown jewel of NATO eastward expansion, the last step in Washington's drive to incorporate all former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries into NATO and install missile defense sites on Russia’s very border.

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy by Graeme MacQueen

review by Prof. Edward Curtin

The anthrax attacks that followed those of 9/11 have disappeared from public memory in ways analogous to the pulverization of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center Building 7. For the towers, at least, ghostly afterimages persist, albeit fading like last night’s nightmare. But the anthrax attacks, clearly linked to 9/11 and the Patriot Act, are like lost letters, sent, but long forgotten. Such disappearing acts are a staple of American life these days. Memory has come upon hard times. With The 2001 Anthrax Deception, Professor Graeme MacQueen, founding Director of the Center for Peace Studies at McMaster University, calls us back to a careful reconsideration of the anthrax attacks. It is an eloquent and pellucid lesson in inductive reasoning and deserves to stand with David Ray Griffin’s brilliant multi-volume dissection of the truth of that tragic September 11th. MacQueen makes a powerful case for the linkage of both events, a tie that binds both to insider elements deep within the U.S. government, perhaps in coordination with foreign elements.
