Is Malaysia in the Saudi-Yemen War?


FMT

‘Why are we entangled in Saudi-led war?’

Retired brigadier-general fears threat to Malaysia’s security.

KUALA LUMPUR: A retired brigadier-general has called for a review of the government’s decision to deploy Malaysian soldiers to Saudi Arabia, saying it could have repercussions on Malaysia’s security.

Speaking to FMT, Mohd Arshad Raji, who last served as the Royal Malaysian Army’s Chief of Staff for Field Headquarters, said he feared that Malaysia’s involvement in the Saudi-led military campaign against Yemen could provoke reactions from elements disagreeing with the campaign.

“When it comes to the involvement of our military overseas, we have to be cautious,” he said. “If it’s for humanitarian reasons and peacekeeping missions, then it’s fine. But I’m at a loss as to why we are sending people to that side of the world. I think we have enough problems in our own region.”

The campaign stretches back to March 2015 with the Saudis backing of Yemen President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi against Houthi rebels, who seized the Yemeni capital of Sanaa and other parts of the country.

The Saudi-led coalition includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates with some support from Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Sudan. But a recent United Nations report said the United States was offering logistical support and intelligence activities and that officers from Britain, France and Malaysia were also working at the coalition’s headquarters in Riyadh.

Arshad said Malaysia should follow the example of Britain when it came to the deployment of troops.

He noted that any proposal to deploy British troops to other countries would be debated in parliament so that the public would be in the know.

“A soldier is someone’s son or father or brother,” he said. “The public has a right to know where we are sending our soldiers and why.”

Recently, in the wake of the UN report, Parti Amanah Negara told Putrajaya to come clean on whether Malaysia had joined the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.

The Defence Ministry is on record as having denied that Malaysian troops were involved, describing the allegations as baseless and slanderous.

The ministry said Malaysian soldiers had been sent to Saudi Arabia to prepare them for duties they might need to undertake, such as moving Malaysians out of Yemen if the need arose.

It added that the armed forces had been invited by Saudi Arabia to take part in its Northern Thunder military exercise, which was meant to foster unity among Muslim countries, not focus on military operations in Yemen.

Is the Media Trying to Reestablish the Establishment?


ArmstrongEconomics

They say that knowledge is power. This is why the media has been engaging in outright propaganda and they hate Trump for he has been using Twitter to bypass the corrupt media. Chris Matthews actually spoke correctly on election night, although since he has said that Russia put its “finger on the scale” to help Trump. Does this clip actually show the “real” Matthews?

The media has been cheerleaders of Hillary and the establishment all the way to the present. The media has turned against Trump viciously and clearly seem to have an agenda to help reestablish the establishment. We are seeing the very same strategy in Germany by Merkel, who is already adopting the Obama strategy by blaming Putin for any potential loss in the election.

Merkel wants full censorship of the press and bloggers. They have even called The Deutsche-Wirtschafts-Nachrichten (DWN) has been under attack by politicians in Europe for reporting the truth, accusing anyone who disagrees with government engaging in propaganda for Russia.

This is extremely dangerous for this behavior leads to a totalitarian state. I have no doubt that one day this site will be blocked in Germany, while we are one of the few sites NOT BLOCKED in China. What does that have to say about Democracy?

The night before the Inauguration

THE NIGHT BEFORE THE INAUGURATION

January 19, 2017 by pal29501, posted in government & politics

Twas the night before the Inauguration, and up in the tower,
The Donald reflected on his newfound power.

The conservative masses had come out in force,
And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.

The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes,
The media lied to them . . . What a surprise.

They had been promised a Hillary win,
But the criminal Clinton took one on the chin.

And though from all corners celebrities flew,
They made no impression, for they hadn’t a clue.

They talked about climate, racism, and such,
And they made up good stories . . . But didn’t know much.

The fake news and ignorance came at a cost,
And they can’t understand all the reasons they lost.

They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,
But fail to acknowledge the one that was bad.

Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed,
Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod.

The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,
And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.

So out in the streets there arose such a clatter,
It was Soros-paid protesters and Black Lives Matter.

With cities to pillage and windows to smash,
They knew not the issues, but needed the cash.

Eight years of Obama had given them cause,
To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus.

But soon the protesters will feel the pain,
When the wheels fall off of the old gravy train.

And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear,
Upset and offended by things that they’ll hear.

The cocoa and crayons will help for a while,
But fact-based opinions will soon cramp their style.

I originally supported, and voted, for Cruz,
In the end, I would vote for whoever they choose.

He wasn’t my first choice, but soon I would cede,
The one they call Trump is the one that we need.

I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,
He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud.

He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs,
Taking this country back from the Washington snobs.

He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat,
And the Brunos he wore made the outfit complete.

For a man of his vintage, he seemed rather fit,
And he looked presidential, I have to admit.

His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best,
And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest.

His love for this country was on full display,
And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.

He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone,
Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on.

The fate of this country left nothing to chance,
So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.

The men he had chosen were of the same mind,
Let’s set the bar high, and not lead from behind.

He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,
With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet;
“Now Mattis!, now Kelly!’ now Sessions! And Pruitt!
On Perry! On Flynn, You’re the ones who can do it.

Start lifting restrictions and building the wall,
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”;
The roar of his audience rose from the stands,
He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands.

He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,
They knew it would be a fantastic four years.

Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet,
A fellow that Liberals won’t soon forget.

He sent one more tweet as the evening expired;

“Happy Inauguration to all,
AND OBAMA – YOU’RE FIRED!”

Trump’s Declaration of War


Sott.Net

paul_craig_roberts

Paul Craig Roberts

President Trump’s brief inaugural speech was a declaration of war against the entirety of the American Ruling Establishment. All of it.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.

If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.

The interest groups designated by Trump as The Enemy are well entrenched and accustomed to being in charge. Their powerful networks are still in place. Although there are Republican majorities in the House and Senate, most of those in Congress are answerable to the ruling interest groups that provide their campaign funds and not to the American people or to the President. The military/security complex, offshoring corporations, Wall Street and the banks are not going to roll over for Trump. And neither is the presstitute media, which is owned by the interest groups whose power Trump challenges.

Trump made it clear that he stands for every American, black, brown, and white. Little doubt his declaration of inclusiveness will be ignored by the haters on the left who will continue to call him a racist just as the $50 per hour paid protesters are doing as I write.

Indeed, black leadership, for example, is enculturated into the victimization role from which it would be hard for them to escape. How do you pull together people who all their lives have been taught that whites are racists and that they are the victims of racists?

Can it be done? I was just on a program briefly with Press TV in which we were supposed to provide analysis of Trump’s inaugural speech. The other commentator was a black American in Washington, DC. Trump’s inclusiveness speech made no impression on him, and the show host was only interested in showing the hired protesters as a way of discrediting America. So many people have an economic interest in speaking in behalf of victims that inclusiveness puts them out of jobs and causes.

So along with the globalists, the CIA, the offshoring corporations, the armaments industries, the NATO establishment in Europe, and foreign politicians accustomed to being well paid for supporting Washington’s interventionist foreign policy, Trump will have arrayed against him the leaders of the victimized peoples, the blacks, the hispanics, the feminists, the illegals, the homosexuals and transgendered. This long list, of course, includes the white liberals as well, as they are convinced that flyover America is the habitat of white racists, misogynists, homophobes, and gun nuts. As far as they are concerned, this 84% of geographical US should be quarantined or interred.

In other words, does enough good will remain in the population to enable a President to unite the 16% America haters with the 84% America lovers? (2016 US Presidential Election Map By County & Vote Share)

Consider the forces that Trump has against him:

Black and hispanic leaders need victimization, because it is what elevates them to power and income. They will turn a jaundiced eye toward Trump’s inclusiveness. Inclusiveness is good for blacks and hispanics, but not for their leaders.

The executives and shareholders of global corporations are enriched by the offshored jobs that Trump says he will bring home. If the jobs come home, their profits, performance bonuses, and capital gains will go away. But the economic security of the American population will return.

The military/security complex has a 1,000 billion annual budget dependent on “the Russian threat” that Trump says he is going to replace with normalized relations. Trump’s assassination cannot be ruled out.

Many Europeans owe their prestige, power, and incomes to the NATO that Trump has called into question.

The financial sector’s profits almost entirely flow from putting Americans into debt bondage and from looting their private and public pensions. The financial sector with their agent, the Federal Reserve, can overwhelm Trump with financial crisis. The New York Federal Reserve Bank has a complete trading desk. It can send any market into turmoil. Or support any market, because there is no limit on its ability to create US dollars.

The entire political ediface in the US has insulated itself from the will, desires, and needs of the people. Now Trump says the politicians will be accountable to the people. This, of course, would mean a big drop in their security in office and in their income and wealth.

There are a large number of groups, funded by we-know-not-who. For example, RootsAction has responded today to Trump’s forceful commitment to stand for all of the people against the Ruling Establishment with a request to “ask Congress to direct the House Judiciary Committee to open an impeachment investigation” and to send money for Trump’s impeachment.

Another hate group, human rights first, attacks Trump’s defense of our borders as closing “a refuge of hope for those fleeing persecution.” Think about this for a minute. According to the liberal-progressive-left and the racial interest group organizations, the US is a racist society and President Trump is a racist. Yet, people subject to American racism are fleeing from persecution to America where they will be racially persecuted? It doesn’t make sense. The illegals come here for work. Ask the construction companies. Ask the chicken and animal slaughter houses. Ask the vacation area cleaning services.

This list of those on whom Trump has declared war is long enough, although there are more that can be added.

We should ask ourselves why a 70 year old billionaire with flourishing businesses, a beautiful wife, and intelligent children is willing to give his final years to the extraordinary stress of being President with the stressful agenda of putting the government back in the hands of the American people. There is no doubt that Trump has made himself a target of assassination. The CIA is not going to give up and go away. Why would a person take on the grand restoration of America that Trump has declared when he could instead spend his remaining years enjoying himself immensely?

Whatever the reason, we should be grateful for it, and if he is sincere we must support him. If he is assassinated, we need to take up our weapons, burn Langley to the ground and kill every one of them.

If he succeeds, he deserves the designation: Trump the Great!

Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, and any other country on the CIA’s hit list should undersand that Trump’s rise is insufficient protection. The CIA is a worldwide organization. Its profitable businesses provide income independent of the US budget. The organization is capable of undertaking operations independently of the President or even of its own Director.

The CIA has had about 70 years to entrench itself. It has not gone away.

George Soros’ World is Falling Apart, Blames Everyone but Himself


For his own part, Soros, ironically at Davos, predicted that Trump had no chance of being elected president. And he was wrong. Now it appears he can’t deal with the outcome. Perhaps because he feels his life’s work is slipping away.

Covert Geopolitics

Call it by any other fancy names, but Corporate Tyranny continue to be exposed for what it truly is, worldwide. Behind it all are big bankers and financial assassins, willing to send taxpayer-funded armed mercenaries into countries unwilling to participate in their self-emolation.

One of the most notable financial assassins is the dying George Soros.

Mainstream Media “War Of Lies” Against President Trump “Outwitted By Truth”


whatdoesitmean

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

An interesting Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) report circulating in the Kremlin today detailing the initial aftermath of Donald Trump’s astounding victory over the international war criminal Hillary Clinton states that the United States mainstream propaganda media’s “war of lies” against America’s new leader are quickly being “outwitted by truth”—a reference to the iconic Russian poet Vladimir Vysotsky who in his famous writing The Parable About The Truth And The Lie most accurately described what these propagandists do by making “no difference at all between the Truth and the Lie…strip them both naked, you’ll never know who is who”. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Unfortunately for the Hillary Clinton supporting US mainstream media propagandists attempting to destroy President Trump with their “war of lies” against him, however, this report notes, America’s now powerful alternative news media has fought back and “outwitted by truth” these falsehoods nearly as fast as they are made up, and whose examples include:

Important to note about all of these lies against President Trump, MoFA experts in this report say, is that they were reported by the US mainstream propaganda media as being the truth—but when exposed by the American alternative news media as being lies, none of these elite media organizations retracted any of their “war of lies” articles.

Even worse, this report continues, as well as conducting their “war of lies” campaign against President Trump, these same mainstream propaganda media news organizations are, also, openly supporting America’s top fashion designers refusing to make an inauguration gown for his wife Melania, top artists demanding that his daughter Ivanka remove their paintings (which she owns) from the walls of her home, and the unleashing of thousands of “internet trolls” to disparage Ivanka’s products sold on Amazon.

MoFA experts in this report further detail that the main tactic of the US mainstream propaganda media’s “war of lies” campaign against President Trump is to create a communistic-leftist rebellion against him on college campuses—where new courses designed to ferment rebellion include “Black Americans Resisting Donald Trump” at Oregon State and “Problem of Whiteness” at the University of Wisconsin—where the students have been so completely indoctrinated by communistic thought, they’ve begun shutting down everyone who doesn’t believe in their leftist ideology.

To the larger issue, though, of what is now occurring with America’s mainstream media propagandists “war of lies” against President Trump, this report notes, are that they are pathetic attempts meant to undo Trump’s victory, and are signs of desperation, not strength, as this nations Deep State disintegrates—and as evidenced by Brexit, Trump, other populist and nationalist movements, all around the world, catching fire—and that the rise of the alternative news media can be likened to wrecking balls aimed at an already structurally unsound and teetering building of these leftist elites that would eventually collapse on its own.

And in one of their last, and equally pathetic, moves to counter the truth telling alternative news media, this report concludes, Facebook, one of America’s largest mainstream propaganda media “war of lies” perpetrators, has now contracted with the leftist communistic “fact checking” site Snopes to remove all articles supporting Trump and others telling the truth—and whose co-founder, David Mikkelson, embezzled $98,000 spending it all on prostitutes before divorcing his wife for “being to fat, and whose main “fact checker’ is Kimberly LaCapria, whose blog ‘ViceVixen’ says she is in touch with her “domme side” and has posted on Snopes.com while smoking pot.

Though this report doesn’t speculate on how the American people will react to their news now being censored on Facebook by an embezzling wife abuser and cheater, and a sexual dominatrix pot smoking prostitute, one surely can’t miss the irony that these morally deficient human beings actually fit right in with the US mainstream propaganda media as both of them care nothing for the soul of this once great country—and will most certainly cheer if it’s destroyed in the pit of demonic lust and greed it’s headed towards.
