CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ 10-20-2017

Gee, what a surprise the Kurds are going to fight to keep the original 2003/2005 borders of Kurdistan from being overrun by Iran’s PMU and the Shia Iraqi Army. I imagine the puddles under the office chairs in the Coaliton conference room are getting rather large by now. So, both the Kurds, the PMU and the Iraqi Army are now using the “heavy stuff” given to them by both NATO and the Americans to fight ISIS on each other.

Hmm, I seem to remember somebody here, oh it was Doomer Doug, saying that when TSHTF it would involve open combat, ie CIVIL WAR, between the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Peshmerga. Oh my,  I didn’t listen to the Bachelor show but anybody with an IQ above single digits could figure out the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Kurdish Peshmerga were going to light each other up the first chance they got.

So, who wins now?

First, ISIS is now back in the game big time. The “destruction of ISIS” Trump et al were crowing about now resembles Bush juniors famous Aircraft Carrier speech “Mission Accomplished.” Hmm, that was before the decade long insurgency, followed by the US running away with its tali between its legs, and that was followed by Iran taking near total control of Iraq.

What is happening now is the second phase of the IRANIAN INVASION OF NORTHERN IRAQ INCLUDING KURDISTAN.

Yep, nobody is going to put the toothpaste back in the tube now. And ISIS is just sitting along the Syrian/Iraq border, all 7,000 of them, as in ONE FULL COMBAT BRIGADE. Now where did the destroyed ISIS come up with 7,000 fighters?

ISIS is likely already moving into Northern Iraq to exploit the open warfare between the three elements of the “anti-ISIS coalition” who are no longer fighting ISIS, but now fighting each other, and using all the big boom boom toys we gave them.

There is no going back now. It is full on Civil War now in Iraq. One more thing. Iran now has to stop cutting up bait and start fishing. This means the PMU will now go FULL ON and move into the 2005 border defined Kurdistan. They really have no choice at this point. At a minimum the PMU and Iraqi Army will try to encircle the original Kurdistan and blockade it. OF course when Iran’s proxy forces do that, all hell is going to break out in Northern Iraq. Whatever differences the two Kurdish Pershmerga groups have, both of them agree that the original Kurdistan’s borders, as defined by the Central government in Baghdad in 2005, are sacrosanct and IRAN’S PROXY FORCES OR THE IRAQI ARMY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BREACH THEM, OR OCCUPY EITHER ERBIL OR THAT OTHER KURDISH CITY FURTHER SOUTH.

Iraqi army, Shiite militia and Peshmerga exchange heavy fire north of Kirkuk

By Rudaw 26 minutes ago

9:54 p.m.

Peshmerga claims high casualties among Iraqi forces

The western command of the Peshmerga, formerly stationed in western Kirkuk, stated that six Peshmerga were killed among their forces in Friday’s clashes and a number were injured.

The command said they destroyed two tanks, including one Abrams tank, one armored vehicle, and more than 12 Humvees.

They also claim more than 150 casualties among the Iraqi forces, consisting of the Iraqi army, Hashd al-Shaabi, Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and mercenaries, they reported.

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command said the Peshmerga used the MILAN anti-tank system against its forces in Friday’s clashes in Pirde (Altun Kupri). The defense system was given by Germany to the Peshmerga “exclusively” for the war against ISIS, the statement read.
 
It said the MILAN weapons caused material and human losses among the Iraqi forces, calling it a violation.
 
It did not provide details of the number of casualties.

Iraqi forces stated that Altun Kupri is under their full control, also confirmed by Rudaw’s reporters.

Two journalists injured in Iraq-Peshmerga clashes

A Rudaw cameraman and a Belgian freelance reporter were injured while covering Friday’s clashes in Pirde, also known as Altun Kupri. Their injuries are not life threatening.

Rudaw cameraman Saman Ghani was covering the clashes, where he said the Peshmerga were putting up “a lot of resistance” when a mortar landed near him.

“I was standing by the reporter, Hiwa Husamadin. A mortar shell landed suddenly next to us by the Humvee. [Shrapnel] hit my hand and neck. But thank God I feel very good now,” said Ghani.

Freelance Belgian photojournalist Jonathan Raa was also injured. He told Rudaw he was feeling fine and his thoughts were with the Peshmerga fighting on the frontline.

ENDLESS DEBT 10-6-2017

I have written many, many essays on why the US Federal Debt is never going to be paid off. We simply do not have the political will to make the kind of spending cuts, or tax increases, to do so. The rest of the world, especially Russia, China, and India have figured that out. They are now engaged in systematic efforts to not price their exports in the US Federal Reserve Fiat Dollar. This is why we buy precious metals, are seriously prepping for the disaster, and buy guns and ammo.

I will admit the link below caught me by surprise. The reason is I have been, like most Americans, been overwhelmed by a series of natural and man made disasters in the last month or so. We had a total of three major hurricanes, with another one, Nate, now inbound as I write this, showing us, as if anybody reading my blog needed reminding, of exactly why we prepare. While we were distracted by all this chaos, “they” did what they do so well; namely, scam us when we aren’t looking.

STUNNING U.S. GOVERNMENT DEBT INCREASE IN PAST FEW DAYS…. While No One Noticed

As the stock market continues to rise on the back of some of the worst geopolitical, financial, and domestic news, the U.S. Treasury has been quietly increasing the amount of government debt, with virtually no coverage by the Mainstream or Alternative Media.  So, how much has the U.S. debt increased in the past few days?   A bunch.

The surge in U.S. debt that took place over the past two days all started when the debt ceiling limit was officially allowed to increase on Sept 8th.  In just one day, the U.S. Treasury increased the public debt by $318 billion:

(chart courtesy of TreasuryDirect.gov)

The was the first time in U.S. history that the public debt rose over $20 trillion.  I mentioned this in my article, The U.S. Government Massive ONE-DAY Debt Increase Impact On Interest Expense & Silver ETF:

The U.S. Treasury will have to pay out an additional $7 billion interest payment for the extra $318 billion in debt it increased in just one day.  Again, that $7 billion interest payment is based on an average 2.2% rate multiplied by the $318 billion in debt.  Now, if we compare the additional $7 billion of U.S. interest expense to the total value of the silver SLV ETF of $5.8 billion, we can plainly see that printing money, and increasing debt becomes a valuable tool for Central Banks to cap the silver price.

Thus, when the U.S. Treasury increased the public debt by $318 billion, it will also have to pay an additional $7 billion in an annual interest payment to finance that debt.  However, that large one-day debt increase was over three weeks ago.  What’s been going on at the U.S. Treasury since then?  Let’s just say; they have been very busy… LOL.

On the last update in September, the U.S. Treasury increased the debt by nearly $40 billion on the very last day of the month:

(chart courtesy of TreasuryDirect.gov)

As we can see, the U.S. public debt increased from $20,203 billion ($20.203 trillion) on Sept. 28th to $20,245 billion on Sept 29th.  Overall, the U.S. debt increased $83 billion more since the $318 billion one-day increase on Sept 8th.   Which means, the total debt increase was $400 billion in a little more than three weeks.  However, the U.S. Government must be making up for lost time when the debt ceiling was frozen from March 15th to Sept 7th.

According to TreasuryDirect.gov website, the U.S. public debt ballooned by another $100 billion in the first two days of October:

(chart courtesy of TreasuryDirect.gov)

Alright, it only increased by $99 billion from $20,445 billion to $20,344 billion, but I’d rather use $100 billion because it has a better ring to it.  So, in less than a month, the U.S. Government public debt increased by a stunning $500 billion.  Along with the half trillion Dollars worth of new public debt, the U.S. Treasury will have to pay an additional $11 billion a year in interest payments based on an average 2.2% rate.

The notion that the Fed will continue to increase interest rates and begin to liquidate its inventory of MBS – Mortgaged Backed Securities that no one wanted in 2009-2010, as well as some of its high-quality Treasury toilet paper, is pure bollocks when they are handing out money hand over fist.  As I mentioned in my article linked above, if the interest rate went back to the 6.4% rate as it was in 2000, the U.S. Treasury interest on the debt would surge to more than $1.3 trillion.

Thus, our annual interest payment of $1.3 trillion (based on a 6.4% average interest rate) would account for one-third of the $3.9 trillion 2016 budget.  Of course, this could not fly as our annual deficit would jump from $587 billion (2016) to $1.4 trillion.  Actually, I believe we are going to see a $1+ trillion annual deficits in the next several years.

It is impressive to see how quickly the U.S. Treasury is increasing the public debt:

Again, this additional $182 debt increase comes after the $318 billion one-day increase on Sept 8th.  No wonder, China and Russia are working together on alternative Gold-Backed Yuan Oil trading benchmark as highlighted in the article, A Failing Empire, Part 2: De-Dollarisation – China and Russia’s Plan From Petroyuan To Gold:

For China, Iran, and Russia, as well as other countries, de-dollarization has become a pressing issue.

The number of countries that are beginning to see the benefits of a decentralized system, as opposed to the US dollar system, is increasing.

  1. Iran and India, but also Iran and Russia, have often traded hydrocarbons in exchange for primary goods, thereby bypassing American sanctions.
  2. Likewise, China’s economic power has allowed it to open a 10-billion-euro line of credit to Iran to circumvent recent sanctions.
  3. Even the DPRK seems to use cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to buy oil from China and bypass US sanctions.
  4. Venezuela (with the largest oil reserves in the world) has just started a historic move to completely renounce selling oil in dollars, and has announced that it will start receiving money in a basket of currencies without US dollars. (This is not to mention the biggest change to have occurred in the last 40 years).
  5. Beijing will buy gas and oil from Russia by paying in yuan, with Moscow being able to convert yuan into gold immediately thanks to the Shanghai International Energy Exchange.

As the U.S. Treasury and Federal Government continues printing money and increasing its debt by $500 billion at a clip, the rest of the world is no longer going to sit around and wait for the negative ramifications.

Lastly, I have one more interesting chart to share before I conclude this article.  I find it quite ironic (HILARIOUS) that the gold and silver price PEAKED on the very same day the debt ceiling was increased and another $318 billion of debt was added to the U.S. Govt balance sheet while the Dow Jones Index bottomed and surged by 1,000+ points:

I gather this chart wraps up the situation nicely.  As the U.S. Govt pumps up the market with another $500 billion in debt, the stock market continues to move into BUBBLE TERRITORY.  Unfortunately, precious metals investors have to be patient until the Fed and U.S. Treasury completely BLOW UP the market.

HERE WE GO AGAIN: LAS VEGAS 10-2-2107

I don’t know at what point Americans figure out we are now at war with Militant Islam here in CONUS.

The reality of this being an ISIS, possibly ANFA crossover is verified by both the connection to the Philipines and the intensity of the FBI system denials. If it wasn’t ISIS, then “they” wouldn’t be denying it so much. ISIS is full of insane people, but the Las Vegas attack was clinical perfection for them. We have now crossed the Rubicon. I find it fascinating that Las Vegas, which has been threatened multiple times by ISIS and now attacked by ISIS, is still claiming Militant Islam didn’t actually attack a city Militant Islam hates, even more than New York, or DC. If there is one city in the world, outside of Dubai, that fires up Militant Islam it is Las Vegas. It is also accepted behavior for Militant Islam to do everything an infidel would do in order to complete the mission. All this “they were drinking booze and getting lap dances” has no understanding of ISIS tactical doctrine. They shave their beards. They don’t go to the Mosque. They drink booze and they give NO indication they are Muslim at all. Besides, if you look at the Chechens for example, or the Bosnians, well they look about as white as a KKK member.

I think it will eventually come out there is a connection to Militant Islam in the Philipines, ie ISIS. You all have to understand much has been invested in the Islam can’t get to us here in the USA where we work, live and play agenda. If “they” admit this was an ISIS attack the financial implications for Las Vegas will be profound. So, “they” will deny any ISIS connection. They would have to admit that will cause Las Vegas to lose BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FUTURE REVENUE.

IF you remember Bin Laden said the key goal of 9-11 was to bankrupt the USA, which, after two wars costing trillions, and homeland security and TSA, well you get the idea.

This was an ISIS sourced terror attack, and fulfils the THREATS ISIS has been making against Las Vegas for years now. It also must be viewed in the context of the Multiple terror attacks that have happened over the last 7 days, in Canada, in France and now in Las Vegas.

I don’t know why we keep underestimating Militant Islam. They are not coming: THEY ARE ALREADY HERE.

TRUMP’S ULTIMATE SELLOUT 9-14-2017

At some point the Trumpbots, the people who voted for Trump and still think he isn’t a farce and a fraud, are going to have to wake up and smell the deceit. Whether we are talking about no charges for the IRS whore Lerner, or $350 billion in arms sales to Saudi Arabia, yeah where they beheaded 47 people in one day, or the endless list of flip flops Trump has done, it was always about the border wall. Only it was just another public relations con job, just like “Lock Hellery the Shrew up,” or eliminate DACA. For those of you still obsessed with the “fourth level chess” hustle, I can only say, just stop it.

We all have to face the fact, or turn into the Trump version of Clintonistas and Obamabots, we have been played by a New York City con artist. Trump simply has no intention of honoring his campaign pledges on border security, draining the swamp, or many other things he said he would do. I will give him credit for his judge appointments, but that doesn’t tip the scales. After watching Trump get down on his knees for oral political sex with Schumer, and the increasingly loony Pelosi, well don’t say I didn’t warn you. The border fence was going to be in the spring budget, and then it was going to be in the September budget, and now, well now it won’t be built at all. Trump will spray paint a few miles of budget fence and the Trumpbots will cheer and that will be that.

The USA is kaput at this point. It will go bankrupt as soon as the costs of the hurricanes are factored in. The political corruption, especially the inbred child abuse at all levels of modern society, is going to be exposed. Soros is going to keep his campaign of sedition going in complete impunity. Kushner and his New York City cabal now fully controls the Trump administration. If you have any doubt of why we prepare, or what conditions will actually be like when TSHTF, just look at the wave of looting, rape, murder and mindless violence now following in the hurricane’s devastation. After all, once you subtract Trump’s promises on border security, draining the swamp, and populism what is left? Trump is now Bush senior after he trashed his famous “read my lips” on taxes. It won’t be pretty once the Soros funded seditionists, the Marxist Democrats, the whore/fake news media get finished with Trump. Trump lied to his deplorables plain and simple.

Buy my e-books or not, but make sure to enjoy the remaining time we have left before the true chaos starts. Enjoy the decline because Trump now confirms that nothing will be done to reform America. Trump was our last, best and only chance, and he has failed. Mene, Mene, Tekel Uparshim: America has been judged; America has been found guilty; America is now sentenced to judgment.

Seize the Day; CARPE DIEM, AMIGOS AND SENORITAS!

TRUMP IS FINISHED 8-19-2017

Well, it didn’t really take long for Trump to sell out and betray all of us who voted for him. The Trump Sellout was a highly visible process. It was a long list of globalists, Wall Street Whores, banksters, Goldman Sach mooches, and neo con warmongers. Over them all ruled our true believer, Steve Bannon. Bannon, who really was the populist core of Trump’s administration, has now resigned, hounded out by the RINO SCUM, Lying Ryan and Mitch the Bitch, McCain et al, the Soros funded hate groups, and the Deep State media. I can’t say I am surprised at this Deep State coup d’e’tat. It is all over for Trump, who will now be gutted by his enemies. Trump is, to quote a book I read about Lord Woolsey many years ago, “Naked to my enemies.” Trump will have nobody to defend him now that he has betrayed and abandoned his supporters. Trump will be left at the mercy of the baying hounds of the media, the Snowflakes and the Democrats. I voted for Trump, since I thought he was the last, best hope for peaceful change in the USA of 2017. In that, I was naive, as were we all. Still, at least I tried and can honestly say the blood of Civil War Two, which is now inevitable, won’t be on my hands.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE VIOLENCE AND CHAOS THAT NOW LOOMS OVER THE USA.

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/steve-bannon-tells-weekly-standard-trump-presidency-fought-won-now/

http://nypost.com/2017/08/18/steve-bannon-is-out-at-white-house/

Top presidential adviser and nationalist bomb-thrower Steve Bannon is out of a job, the White House said Friday.

“Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Kelly had earlier wrapped up a review of the West Wing staff and the former Breitbart editor, the voice of the alt-right who had the president’s ear, was the first casualty.

“Bannon had one hell of a run,” tweeted Matt Drudge, who first reported the story.

Modal Trigger

Bannon had been on the outs with Trump before for grandstanding and stealing the spotlight, but the president suspected he was one of the main leakers in the administration, trashing his colleagues in news reports.

The notoriously thin-skinned president resented the publicity Bannon had been getting as the supposed mastermind of Trump’s campaign and upset victory.

One White House source told Axios, “His departure may seem turbulent in the media, but inside it will be very smooth. He has no projects or responsibilities to hand off.”

Bannon in recent days gave interviews to publications including the New York Times, in which he defended Trump’s controversial comments in the wake of the racial violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend.

A senior White House official told Axios that it seemed like Bannon was setting himself up to be a martyr — the white nationalist hero canned by the “globalists.”

A source close to Bannon added: “This week is a good window into what Bannon outside the [White House] would look like: A strong defense of POTUS and ‘fire and fury’ for enemies of the Trump agenda. Get ready for Bannon the barbarian.”

And Bannon was expected to rejoin Breitbart, which he once said gave a platform to the alt-right.

Trump told reporters at Trump Tower on Tuesday that Bannon was a “good man” and “not a racist.”

“I like Mr. Bannon. He’s a friend of mine. But Mr. Bannon came on very late. You know that. I went through 17 senators, governors, and I won all the primaries. Mr. Bannon came on very much later than that,” Trump said, adding, “but we’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon.”

In his interview with the ultra-liberal American Prospect, Bannon contradicted the president’s position on North Korea while trashing his more moderate colleagues for their views on an “economic war” with China.

The danger for Trump is that Bannon will unleash Breitbart and other conservative media against the White House.

NORTH KOREA LAUNCHES ICBM, IT FLIES 600 MILES, STAYS UP 40 MINUTES CHINA FREAKS, AND JAPAN WANTS KILLER MISSILES FOR F-35 7-3-2017

Well, Little Fat Boy sure knows how to set off some fireworks for the Fourth of July. First, this was an ICBM, likely medium range, although it may be a disguised long range ICBM. North Korea is now engaged in the kind of sequential testing process you need to develop long range ICBM’s. North Korea has tested missile engines and nuclear warheads deep in caves. North Korea has launched multiple missiles, with height tests, like shooting them up high, short and medium range tests, to determine trajectory. Finally, North Korea has consistently said it will never stop doing this until it has a nuclear warhead tipped long range ICBM capable of hitting the US West Coast. Actually, Little Fat Boy wants the range to hit all of CONUS.

HOW THE REPUBLICANS MAY LOSE IN 2018

The link below makes some interesting reading regarding the November 2018 elections that everybody thinks are a slam-dunk for the Republicans. My comments are below.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattve…think-n2348548

I am on record as seeing the results of the 2018 election as a 60 seat Republican Senate and a 300 Republican House majority. Unfortunately, there is a reason the Republican Party is called the Stupid Party. The RINOS have unleashed a level of arrogance, incompetence and stupidity I find truly staggering in scope. The Republicans have all the advantages in November of 2018; yet, they may just screw it up and lose seats. The reason being a lot of the Trump voters are becoming increasingly angry at the RINO traitors, like Lying Ryan, annoyed at Trump for his flip flops, and inability, or unwillingness, to actually do what he said he would do on many issues. I have a whole list of Trump’s con jobs ranging from illegal immigration, fair trade, neo con warmongering and others.

Ergo, do not assume the RINO/Trump party will coast to victory. We may see a scenario where you have a massive Democrat turnout from enraged anti-Trump types, a low turnout from disgusted Trump voters, combined with just enough voter fraud to tip just enough elections. I will note that 21 states are refusing to give the Korbach commission any information on voter lists. Gee, I wonder why?

At any rate, the Stupid Republican Party may be willing to trash both Trump and their majority in order to take Trump down.
