National Security Advisor McMaster Stabs Trump in the Back Again, on Russia Policy

National Security Advisor McMaster Stabs Trump in the Back Again, on Russia Policy

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and the other neocons President Trump has foolishly brought into the White House are embarrassing, but persistent in their view of Russia as an eternal U.S. adversary. Weeks after UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was 'punk'd' by Russian pranksters Vova and Lexus, who posed as Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on the phone to record Haley denouncing Kremlin meddling in the fictional Southeast Asian country of Binomo, McMaster claimed the Russians are now menacing -- Mexico.

Without offering any evidence or examples from South of the Border, McMaster declared in a speech to the historically Russophobic, Caucuses jihadi friendly Jamestown Foundation that Russians were interfering in the upcoming Mexican presidential elections in July. This followed an interview with taxpayer subsidized Voice of America (VOA) and former Fox News reporter Greta Van Susteren in which he accused Russia of destabilizing actions all over the world. McMaster also claimed in response to a question from the audience that the Russians had meddled via social and news media in the Catalan independence referendum from NATO member Spain. The fact that French intelligence had declared after their presidential election that they saw no evidence of Russian state sponsored hacking of the Macron campaign and the Germans likewise detected no Russian hacks related to their federal vote this past year was not mentioned by McMaster. -- JWS

Without Joining In Asia's New Silk Road, Trump Is Facing A Financial Crash

Without Joining In Asia's New Silk Road, Trump Is Facing A Financial Crash

President Donald Trump's administration cannot miss any more opportunities if it is going to carry out the intention for which, above all else, Americans elected him: To get the United States out of endless foreign wars, and rebuild and reindustrialize the nation.

If the big corporate tax cut is all there is to the Trump Administration's economic policy, then the President and the nation are facing an oncoming financial crash, and another so-called "Great Recession" much worse than the last. The huge corporate debt and stock bubble already created with central bank free money for a decade, now surrounded by what analysts are calling the "everything bubble" of other exploding debt categories, cannot stand the smallest coming interest rate increases. Corporate tax cuts will not save it, but only blow it up faster until it explodes. The Wall Street and London megabanks are scrambling out of this debt by securitizing it — packaging and selling it on — knowing it is not payable. U.S. banks' securitization of debt — corporate junk, auto and credit card debt, student debt, etc. — has grown by $1.1 trillion or 25% just during 2017.

"We Are In A Giant Ponzi Scheme, The Physical Economy Is Not Growing"

"We Are In A Giant Ponzi Scheme, The Physical Economy Is Not Growing"

As Team RogueMoney has been predicting for over two years, the Dow appears headed for 29,000 and the dollar is flying into the monetary hypoxia inducing stratosphere. A surge of optimism or more accurately pegged, hype has accompanied President Trump's tax reform/capital repatriation package. But Trump's physical infrastructure legislation has yet to be revealed with the anticipated State of the Union address.

Meanwhile, the real indicators from the physical economy and consumer/student loan debt levels are flashing red. Given the political dynamics of Democrats discrediting themselves with their ridiculous Russiagate obsession, the GOP appears likely to hang on to the House and the Senate by a thread, but a wave of commercial real estate foreclosures from the hollowing out of retail is inevitable along with the re-blown post 2008 residential housing bubble popping as Millenials cannot afford homes in the largest metropolitan areas.

In early January our Berlin, Germany-based friend LaRouchePAC's Harley Schlanger sat down with Dave of the X22 Report to discuss these and other trends. -- JWS

Syraq SITREP 28: Attacks on Russia's Kheimmim Air Base, Iran Likely to Increase Support for Houthis as Payback for CIA Sponsored Unrest

Syraq SITREP 28: Attacks on Russia's Kheimmim Air Base, Iran Likely to Increase Support for Houthis as Payback for CIA Sponsored Unrest

On New Year's Eve jihadists launch a surprise mortar attack on Kheimmim air base outside Latakia, taking advantage of Russian servicemen's festive holiday mood. No group has claimed responsibility or released video footage of the attack, likely launched using 'shoot and scoot' tactics from a mortar mounted on a pickup truck to avoid counter-mortar fire. Nonetheless, a follow on attack on the base timed for Saturday's Orthodox Christmas eve a week later using multiple armed mini-drones that were shot down by Pantsirs or other base air defenses strongly suggests state sponsorship and intelligence support for the attacks.

At least two Russian servicemen are reportedly dead from the initial mortar assault and multiple aircraft were said to be damaged -- though only pictures of a SU24 bomber number 29 (filmed previously operating at the base by RT camera crews) have emerged on the Russian social media network VKontakte (see above). The damage irreparable or not to six Su-24s; one Su-35S; one An-72; one An-30 spy plane; and one Mi-8 helicopter the BBC claimed, citing Russian journalist Roman Saponkov's VK post, could not be confirmed.

January 18... is this the date of a global monetary reset and end of Petrodollar?

January 18... is this the date of a global monetary reset and end of Petrodollar?

As news begins to leak out of January 18 being the day in which China will begin their Yuan-denominated oil contract, there are a few other rumors at play in which this gambit could go far beyond simply pricing oil in a currency other than the dollar.  In fact in Greg Hunter's weekly review over at USA Watchdog earlier today, January 18 may include a global reset in the debt or currency markets.

Schiller Institute NYC Webcast with Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity's (VIPS) William Binney and Ray McGovern

Schiller Institute NYC Webcast with Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity's (VIPS) William Binney and Ray McGovern

On Friday January 5, 2018 former CIA presidential daily briefer for President Ronald Reagan, Ray McGovern and decorated NSA whistle blower William Binney joined a webcast with Barbara Boyd, author of the LaRouchePAC blockbuster, Robert Mueller is an Amoral Assassin, He Will Do His Job if You Let Him. As we reported here at RogueMoney several weeks ago, Deep State sock puppets in the media were seething after the 'conspiracy theorist' Binney met with CIA director Mike Pompeo, to present VIPS' evidence that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) 'hacks' allegedly carried out by Russians were an inside job.

The success of LaRouchePAC's pamphlet and others efforts in exposing the Russiagate hoax is now evident, as Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA) and formerly outspoken Trump opponent Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have referred 'former' British spy Christopher Steele to the Justice Department for prosecution over false statements to Congressional investigators -- hoisting the British directed deep state cabal Mueller fronts for on the same 'Martha Stewart law' petard they used against retired DIA chief Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

Steve Bannon Just Got a Dose of Scapegoat Theology

Steve Bannon Just Got a Dose of Scapegoat Theology

It's probably not Peter Thiel's fault that his name just happens to be a perfect anagram of the words "The Reptile". And it's surely just a coincidence that Thiel was awestruck with the concept of "scapegoat mechanisms" as a means to settle conflict and restore peace among competitors when he was a student at Stanford. In the end, everything will surely work out fine. Bannon will earn millions from the notoriety of Michael Wolff's book, the President will have access to all the AI tools he needs in his battle against the Deep State, and Peter Thiel just became the voice that whispers behind the throne.

Desperate British Attack Frees Trump from "Populist" Mythology

Desperate British Attack Frees Trump from "Populist" Mythology

With Russiagate crumbling from under the feet of the would-be Gods of Olympus, the British have taken such desperate measures to save their attempted coup against the President of the United States, that they have inadvertently freed the President from the straightjacket of "populism," which was in fact thrust upon him by the same coup-plotters, to limit his capacity to act.

Sluice Gates of Energy and Earth Magic

Sluice Gates of Energy and Earth Magic

Nearly every week the world sets itself on pins and needles as the leader of North Korea threatens to launch a nuclear bomb. In fact, a test was launched back on September 3, 2017. Curiously, a footnote in the Wikipedia page of the incident informs us that "North Korea never announces the amount of yield from their nuclear tests." In this next installment of our #Celestials series, we can guess why. "Somebody" has figured out how to "gate" free energy from the physical medium itself.
