Except for its success in the recently concluded elitist French Election 2017, the Deep State is also suffering defeats in major WW3 frontlines around the globe.
First off, the retirement of Prince Philip is not something to be celebratory about. The UK monarchy still exists, and the plunder of the sovereign wealth of its “commonwealths” continues on.
But the following events may give us some degree of hope for the planet.
Syrian Safe Zones Come into Force
The Russian-proposed safe zones in Syria – where no fighting between the government and opposition is allowed – came into force at 21:00 GMT May 5.
The safe or de-escalation zones in Syria are described as a temporary measure which will be enforced for the next six months with the possibility of extending it for another six.
The safe zones were agreed by the guarantor-states – Russia, Iran and Turkey – during negotiations in the Kazakh capital, Astana Thursday. All parties expressed hope that the initiative will lead the way for the settlement of the conflict.
The document, which was penned in English, was published by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Saturday morning.
The four safe zones are established in Syria’s Idlib Governorate and parts of neighboring Latakia, Aleppo and Hama provinces; in the northern part of Homs province; in the Damascus neighborhood of Eastern Ghouta, and in parts of southern Deraa and Quneitra provinces bordering Jordan.
The establishment of the four Syrian Safe Zones by Russia, Iran and Turkey is not meant to please or accommodate the US interests, i.e. this is different from what the US wanted when it first proposed the safe zones meant to partition Syria as its Plan B for losing to the decisive Russian intervention.
The establishment of four safe zones in Syria by Russia, Iran, and Turkey shouldn’t be seen as some sort of “concession” to Washington, Vzglyad’s political analyst Evgeny Krutikov noted, adding that the US influence on rebel groups on the ground in Syria is seemingly fading away.
During reconciliation talks in Astana on May 4, Russia, Iran and Turkey signed a memorandum on establishing four safe zones, or zones of de-escalation of tension.
Furthermore, from midnight May 1, Russia stopped using its Aerospace Forces in the zones defined by the document.
“From 12 am on May 1, the use of aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in areas corresponding to the de-escalation zones defined by the memorandum was stopped,” the Russian General Staff’s Main Operational Directorate Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi told reporters.
For its cooperation in the establishment of the Syrian safe zones, Turkey will benefit largely for the resumption of the planned TurkStream pipeline construction by Gazprom. This will also put the Russian natural gas in a better pricing position towards the EU states, effectively defeating the Western sanctions against it.
Russian energy giant Gazprom has begun laying pipes for the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline off the Russian Black Sea coast, Gazprom CEO Aleksey Miller said Sunday, days after the Sochi meeting between Turkish and Russian leaders.
“Today, we started the practical implementation of the TurkStream gas pipeline project: pipe-laying within the offshore section. The project has been implemented in strict compliance with the plan,” Miller said in a statement Sunday, adding that “by late 2019, our Turkish and European consumers will have a new, reliable source of Russian gas imports.”
… The first of the legs, with a maximum capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters, will deliver Russian natural gas directly to Turkey, while the second is envisioned to supply gas to European customers.
The much-awaited announcement comes on the heels of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi on May 3.
The Turkish Stream project, which was signed into an agreement by Putin and Erdogan in Istanbul in October 2016, was one of the key points on the meeting’s agenda.
The Deep State military industrial complex, on the other hand, has to settle for the crumbs that their Raytheon, et.al. stocks are gaining. They are also set to benefit from the Pentagon’s plan to boost military presence in Asia, after the successful US armada incursion into the Korean Peninsula which set the stage for the need to confront the North Korean menace.
The US Department of Defense (DoD) ostensibly plans to increase its footprint in Asia by allocating nearly $8 billion on modernizing military infrastructure, carrying out more war-games and deploying additional forces to the region. The move comes at a time when Washington’s relations with North Korea have become increasingly strained.
Supporters of the Pentagon’s initiative, unveiled by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, are likely to view it as a signal of Washington’s commitment to Asia.
The beauty of the war enterprise is that the end users will spend so much not only on the weapons, but on ammunition, too, like the ink on the printer, and these warmongers and war profiteers are not the ones who are dying.
The Korean Peninsula
The North Korean hotspot suddenly came to the forefront when it’s clear to the Pentagon that its shadow war in the South China Sea Theater needs to be suspended when Duterte visited China last year.
After the ASEAN ignored The Hague’s UNCLOS verdict favoring the US interests in the Philippines, the ongoing joint military exercises between the Philippines and the US are also being done away with in the South China Sea and moved into the Philippine’s eastern seaboard, and all activities are restricted to disaster search and rescue operations only.
As if this is not enough, the Philippine government is also arranging military exercises with its Chinese counterparts, in the aftermath of the recent visit of three Chinese warships in Mindanao. Such naval exercises will be done in the vicinity of Sulu Sea, where the remnants of the CIA organized terror group Abu Sayyaf is holding up.
So, the Korean Peninsula must be fired up once again, and South Korea and Japan need to spend more on “self-defense. ”
A “Controlled Demolition” of the Financial Sector
On top of their losses in the Middle East and East Asia, the corporate United States is also experiencing bankruptcy in Puerto Rico, which should reflect the true state of the Washington DC, Corp. at home.
This impending collapse is being labeled by other analysts as a “controlled demolition” of the United States, which will be administered by Donald Trump. Not to worry, of course, as he was being prepared for the job, a long time ago.
With the appointment of a former Goldman Sach’s top executive to the Trump Campaign, who also worked for Soros Fund Management, it should be clear that Goldman & Company is getting set for the inevitable. After all, Donald Trump is a well-known bankruptcy artist. He has at least four (maybe 5) under his belt and therefore plenty of practice for the BIG ONE. The “Biggest One of All Time” is of course the bankruptcy of the U.S. Corporation, Inc. which everyone now knows is effectively bankrupt because of the Federal Reserve practice of relentless Quantitative Easing (also known as money printing out of thin air).
On top of this “controlled demolition,” the notorious Rothschild henchman, George Soros, is being slapped with a $10 billion federal lawsuit for the usual crime of “wielding political influence.”
A $10 billion suit against George Soros accuses the self-styled humanitarian of meddling in the politics of a poor African country in order to settle his own scores, a charge the billionaire’s critics say reflects his longtime modus operandi.
The 86-year-old investor, who controls a web of international nonprofits in addition to his vast financial empire, used his sway with the government of Guinea to freeze Israeli company BSG Resources out of the West African nation’s lucrative iron ore mining contracts, according to the suit filed last month in New York Federal Court by BSG Resources.
“Soros was motivated solely by malice, as there was no economic interest he had in Guinea,” BSGR alleges in court papers.
“Americans do not understand the extent to which Soros fuels this anti-constitutional, anti-American agenda.” – J. Christian Adams, former DOJ attorney
A spokesman for Soros, who regularly supports nascent democratic governments in Eastern Europe and Africa, said the philanthropist has a lifelong interest in helping impoverished nations, and only backed a probe of BSG out of corruption concerns.
Whatever the ultimate outcome in the current case, it is not the first time Soros has been accused of sowing political upheaval to advance a personal agenda. Critics around the world, including in the U.S. and in Soros’ homeland of Hungary, say the liberal financier often masquerades as a humanitarian while manipulating the political landscape.
We are hoping that this isn’t just another elaborate travesty played by the two sides of the Deep State.
In the same offensive against the Soros menace, the Philippine government blasted the Soros agent disguised as the United Nations Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard following her recent Philippine visit where she issued veiled criticism of President Rodrigo Duterte’s anti-drug campaign and human rights violations.
Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, co-chair of the Philippine delegation to Geneva, said that any Filipino who would see Callamard’s critical tweets and statements against the government would not think that she was impartial and fair.
Drugs has no effect on your brain? So, why are you manifesting one of its symptoms?
In her speech at a Philippine Commission on Human Rights event last Friday, UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard said: “In April 2016, the general assembly of the world’s government recognized explicitly that the war on drugs does not work.”
She is lying. The United Nations General Assembly never made such a declaration, explicitly or implicitly.
The UN General Assembly’s lengthy 11,000-word resolution (UN Document A/RES/S-30/1) issued April 19 entitled “Our joint commitment to effectively addressing and countering the world drug problem” did not even use the term “war on drugs”, much less did it say it “doesn’t work”.
They are rectifying the negative narrative of the war on narcopolitics, even if the Western media is not covering it.
What this means is that even small countries like the Philippines are now taking a major offensive against their continued oppression by external forces in every arena available to them.
So, while the West continues its downward trajectory through its unceasing participation in the Deep State’s grossly rigged democratic rituals, the Eastern Alliance will meet again later this month to talk about the expansion of the coverage on the massive “One Belt, One Road” development across the Eurasian region. Although many requested to attend summit, only 80 or so were given the opportunity to do so.
There’s much ado about nothing when it comes to One Belt, One Road (also known as the Belt & Road, or B&R) initiative that Chinese President Xi Jinping introduced in 2013 during a state trip to Kazakhstan.
Tom McGregor — Beijing pledged to spend more than $1 trillion dollars to build major infrastructure projects for countries signed up in the regions — Asia, Africa, Middle East, Europe, Oceania and Central Asia.
The initiative would benefit participating member states since China would aid sovereign governments to build logistics hubs — roads, railways, ports, bridges and airports; manufacturing parks; energy zones with power plants and new financial centers.
The projects are costly and could take decades to build, but it’s a win-win for companies going global on trade and investments. There will be an easier flow of transporting goods, people can move at greater convenience and less hassle to exchange foreign currencies when signing cross-border business deals.
Beijing benefits most, but deservedly so
China and Chinese companies are expected to profit most of all, since Beijing can reduce its overcapacity glut of steel, and Chinese contractors get top priority on building key infrastructure for other countries.
But considering that Beijing is the biggest investor of the Belt & Road, they deserve the right to determine the overall rules, so long as other countries agree to their terms. And if there’s disagreement, then the project can get built in another country that would want it even more.
It makes pragmatic sense for China to invest so heavily in global infrastructure projects and expect some return on its investment.
For example, CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) envisions a bold plan to open up new factories, power plants and medical centers on the Pakistan side of the border. Chinese companies will receive generous long-term rental fees and low to zero tax rates for the next 30 years.
New era of foreign aid deal-making
Nonetheless, “Pakistan First” economic nationalists have denounced the deal as a land grab for China, but they are overlooking the simple fact that without CPEC, Pakistan has no sufficient FDI (foreign direct investments) to transform its long-dormant economic conditions for truly sustainable development in the long-term.
Hence, construction of CPEC remains stalled with unnecessary bureaucratic delays and appears unlikely to come to fruition anytime soon.
Beijing is learning a hard lesson that no good deed goes unpunished.
… This month, the Chinese government will host the Belt & Road Forum, inviting government and business leaders from all over the world. Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to attend.
Power brokers and high-level government officials can discuss the benefits and risks of the so-called New Silk Road, while Beijing must address concerns the project was launched with devious motives.
The anti-China conspiracy theorists will never change their negative views on the B&R, but other governments with more neutral positions can attend the forum and discover for themselves if the Belt & Road is the right deal for them.
And when you think about it, the B&R comes down to a simple question: do you want the Chinese to build high-speed railways for your country or not?
The Philippine government is choosing Chinese infrastructure grants for at least 3 long span bridges to connect some of its islands together, as part of the $24 billion worth of economic projects from China, instead of continuing to serve the regressive desires of the US. Unsurprisingly, Duterte is also invited to attend the Belt & Road Summit this month.
The big question now is: Will the Americans continue to wait for the “controlled demolition” to happen in their sleep?
Or, will they take the necessary actions before ensuing food riots will necessitate the imposition of martial law?
Make no mistake about it: this “controlled demolition” is not direcly caused by the Eastern Alliance, but only the effect of its decisive response to the failure of the Western Oligarchy to comply with its end of the bargain – the proper use of its technology as funded for by the Asian Collateral Accounts, for the benefit of all mankind.
This effect is necessary for the Western population to finally revolt against their own colonial, Satanic masters.
