Xi Jinping Pledges To "Strengthen Relationship" Between Saudi Arabia And China


In what can only be described as a masterful play to entice Saudi Arabia to list shares of Aramco in Hong Kong (assuming the kingdom follows through with the listing, which is reportedly in jeopardy) Chinese state media reported Friday that Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to strengthen the relationship between China and Saudi Arabia as the latter tries to reform its economy.

According to the South China Morning Post, Xi vowed to strengthen cooperation between the two states at a time when the Middle Eastern kingdom is facing a political shake-up at home, and heightened tensions with Lebanon and Iran. Xi’s vow of friendship came with the crucial qualifier that the relationship between the two countries wouldn’t be affected by shifting international circumstances.
No matter how the international and regional situation changed, China’s determination to deepen strategic cooperation with Saudi Arabia would not change, President Xi Jinping told Saudi King Salman in a telephone conversation, according to a report by China’s state broadcaster CCTV.
 
“China supports Saudi in its efforts to safeguard its sovereignty and achieve greater development,” Xi was quoted as saying.
Of course, that’s an implicit threat that China might come to KSA’s aide if the simmering hostilities between the kingdom and Iran explode out into a military conflict between the two regional rivals. However, the SCMP also stresses that China has a strong relationship with Iran as well.

Hong Kong is reportedly still in consideration to host the Aramco IPO.

And while China will presumably play the dual role of investor and adviser as the Kingdom seeks to diversify its economy into other industries besides energy, including technology and manufacturing, KSA has in returned promised to assist Xi’s “one belt, one road” economic reform program.
King Salman told Xi that Saudi Arabia was willing to become China’s “important partner” in the Gulf. The kingdom also intended to play a role in China’s “Belt and Road Initiative” and cooperate with Beijing in the energy and financial sectors, he said
Though Chinese media reports didn’t delve into too much detail about the recent purge orchestrated by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the call between the two leaders obviously follows an event two weeks for KSA, where its leaders reportedly pressured Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign. Hariri had to go, allegedly, because he was deemed too soft on Hezbollah, the shiite militant group that’s affiliated with Iran and is also an important powerbroker in Lebanon.

Two weeks ago, dozens of Saudi princes and officials were detained on corruption charges, a move that is believed to have helped Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to consolidate his power. And yesterday the Financial Times exposed the “corruption crackdown” for what is truly is: A naked cash grab meant to refill KSA’s foreign currency reserves while allowing it the financial flexibility to help ensure the Aramco IPO is executed at the best possible price.

Warehouses Full of US-Made 'Lethal Weapons' Found by Syrian Army


The Syrian Army has liberated new quarters of Deir ez-Zor from Daesh terrorists. During the operation the army found large warehouses with a huge number of lethal weapons. The Syrian military source told Sputnik Arabic what exactly these warehouses were storing.
 
According to the Syrian military source there were a lot of US-made weapons and military equipment of Western European and Israeli production. Apart from M-16 automatic rifles there were TOW anti-tank missile systems and 155 mm US field guns. 

“There were also Hummers, which were either used to transport people or were stuffed with bombs inside ready to explode. Israeli intelligence reconnaissance aircraft and a modern Israeli protective suit for conducting sapper work have also been found,” the source told Sputnik Arabic.
 
The source also said that tech for air and ground reconnaissance, satellite communications and bags with C-4 explosives were also discovered inside these warehouses.

There were also boxes with ammunition and weapons stored in the underground shelters, while tanks and cars were covered with a camouflage net to protect against Russian and Syrian airstrikes.

The Inside Syria Media Center website quoted Syrian Brigade General Ali al-Ali as saying that the United States illegally delivered at least 1,500 trucks with weapons and military equipment to terrorists in Syria between June 5 and September 15 of this year. 

Although Washington said that these weapons were intended for US allies, they always fell into the hands of terrorists, the general said.

Pentagon Says It's Staying In Syria, Even Though ISIS Appears Defeated

Soros and his ‘226 EU friends’ thrust into spotlight by Farage – so who are they?


Picking up the anti-Soros torch from Hungarian leader Viktor Orban, UK politician Nigel Farage is seeking to investigate fellow EU MEPs who support the controversial vision of the wealthy financier. But are Orban and Farage’s fears valid?
   
UK politician Nigel Farage, the prominent face of Brexit, is now concerned about Europe’s destiny. Addressing the EU Parliament this week, Farage provided some thoughtful ideas as to the source of the claims that Russia had somehow manipulated the Brexit vote, as well as the Trump election.

“Just last week, the electoral commission, in the UK, launched an investigation to find out whether the ‘Leave’ campaign took offshore money or Russian money,” Farage said.

"This came about as a result of questions asked in the House of Commons by one Ben Bradshaw, somebody linked to an organization called Open Society.”

But Farage, who seems to take great delight in agitating his fellow MPs, was just warming up. He went on to provide yet another example of an EU parliamentarian working on behalf of George Soros, this time against Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, who has accused the financier of seeking to create “a Europe of mixed population.”

“We even had last week Mr. [Guy] Verhofstadt lobbying on behalf of Mr. Soros at the Conference of Presidents in a battle that is going on with Viktor Orban, the prime minister of Hungary,” Farage said, pointing directly at Verhofstadt as he spoke.

“I wonder,” Farage continued, “when we are talking about ‘political collusion,’ I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place.”

Farage described Soros’s influence in Strasbourg and Brussels as “truly extraordinary.” And that influence looks set to increase dramatically now that Soros has donated the bulk of his wealth - $18 billion - into his Open Society pet project, which campaigns for open borders and supranational structures such as the European Union.

Farage concluded his short, fiery monologue with a weighty statement: “I fear we could be looking at the biggest level of international, political collusion in history.”

On the surface, there seems to be some legitimacy to Farage’s claim. According to public sources, Open Society European Policy Institute (OSEPI), the EU policy arm of Open Society Foundations, met with members of the European Commission on 44 separate occasions in 2016. And now that the organization has just been energized with $18 billion, it would seem apparent that that influence is set to increase.

Moreover, the Soros organizations published a pamphlet providing details on a list of 226 reliable “friends” who serve in the European Parliament. Farage said he would call on the parliament to set up a special committee to investigate the issue.
--------------------------------------------

What does Soros want?


To say that George Soros, who was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, has an influence on the global scene, would be the understatement of the century. His excessive wealth allows him to finance a veritable army of organizations, many serving at cross purposes.
 
Indeed, Soros, 87, has been connected to movements and civil disturbances as diverse as distanced as Black Lives Matter movement in the US, to the Maidan uprising in Ukraine.

And nowhere has Soros’s influence been more felt than in the ongoing European debate over migrants.

It looks like the European refugee crisis, which has been blamed on the Syrian civil war, would not occur in its current intensity without the direct assistance of the Open Society Foundation.

Thanks to the advocacy work of the Migration Policy Institute and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM), both Soros-sponsored organizations, the mass resettlement of Muslims from the Middle East and North Africa into Europe became the norm.

In fact, it appeared that the so-called “Merkel Plan” – the deal struck by the EU and Turkey – was the brainchild of the European Stability Initiative, “in addition to the largesse of George Soros’ foundations,” F. William Engdahl wrote in the Near Eastern Outlook.

Considering that the massive influx of Muslim migrants threatens to change the face of “Christian Europe” forever, and without any vote on the matter by the people of Europe, perhaps it is time to see exactly what kind of direct influence George Soros and his Open Society Foundation are having on European parliamentarians. After all, these are not the play toys of any one individual, but the representatives of an entire state.

Secret Informant in Fear for His Life After Jeff Sessions’ DOJ Leaks His Name One Week Before Testifying Against Clinton Crime Family


The Jeff Sessions DOJ leaked the name of the FBI informant in the Clinton Uranium One bribery case.

On the Sean Hannity Show it was reported that the Sessions DOJ told Reuters the man’s name who has information on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One is William D. Campbell.

Campbell worked as a consultant for a Russian firm.  According to reporter John Solomon the informant is a consultant and his evidence will show Russian agents with suitcases of cash ready to bribe the Clintons for US uranium.

Investigative reporter John Solomon from The Hill told Sean Hannity on Thursday the consultant has video of briefcases full of money used to bribe US officials in the Russia uranium scandal involving Hillary Clinton.
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/11/jeff-sessions-doj-leaks-name-of-informant-in-clinton-uranium-one-bribery-case-hes-now-in-fear-for-his-life/

Sessons is acting like a traitor when it comes to dispensing justice. He also appears unwilling to prosecute Clinton for grossly 'mishandling' classified emails among other things. The exposed informant has every reason to fear for his life. Other individuals who have gone up against the Clintons have ended up dead.

Moore Accuser Removes Anti Moore, Anti Trump FB Rants - Bill Still


Synopsis:Why is Judge Roy Moore important? Because he would be the swing vote in the U.S. Senate on a host of conservative, Pro-Trump issues – essentially nullifying turncoat Sen. John McCain’s vote.
But there is a deeper reason. This is what they tried on Donald Trump – exact same gig – and it nearly worked. They nearly drove him out of the Presidential contest.
Thirty days out from the election is the perfect time for salacious gossip to be repeated, but not investigated by the MSM. People tend to hear the oft repeated initial lies and not the later correction that the lie was actually a deliberate untruth devised by the Deep State Ministry of Propaganda.

Steve Bannon: If America Doesn’t Thwart These Five Things, China Will Be a Hegemonic Power


He explained how President Xi’s speech claimed victory for the Chinese way over that of Western liberal democracy, with Bannon describing Xi’s remarks as “chilling.”

“It said that the mercantilist, Confucianist, authoritative system of China is the victor over the Judeo-Christian, liberal democratic free-market West; that their system is better, and they go over how it is better and how they’ve beaten us,” he argued.

He warned that there are five things that China is going to achieve in the next few years, and if America does not thwart them, “China will in fact be a hegemonic power.” They are:
  1. The rollout of fifth generation mobile technology — known as “5G.”
  2. The expansion of the One Belt One Road Initiative — a transport system to go through central Asia and connect China to the Middle East.
  3. Plan 2025 — 10 industries the Chinese have aimed to dominate by 2025. Bannon described the Chinese as “way ahead.” Bannon said three of those are silicon chips, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
  4. Conversion of all oil transactions into Chinese currency, which he said will end America as a reserve currency and force the U.S. to start paying off the 20 trillion debt.
  5. Financial technology. Bannon said the true piece of leverage with North Korea is the ability to decouple countries from the world’s financial system, sanction companies, and shut banks off from capital markets. He predicted that in 5-10 years that ability is gone.
“If they accomplish those five things, they win,” he predicted.

It's simple. Organisation beats disorganisation.

The Chinese government, working with their industrial sector, have goals and a strategy. The US on the other hand is in an everyone-for-themselves mentality, with the oligarchs and corporatists setting things up so a few loot the system and to hell with the consequences. The US oligarchs would sell their own mothers if offered enough money.

Gordon Brown Claims the Pentagon Knew Saddam Hussein Didn't Have Weapons of Mass Destruction




Attacking another country that is not a threat to your country is an act of aggression and a war crime.

Unlike Gordon Brown's account here - that the UK was played by the US - we have the Downing Street Memos that shows the UK knew the US were fixing the facts to suit their policy for war. I also dispute the idea he raises that the Israelis stopped any nuclear weapons program allegedly underway in Syria. On the UK economy, Gordon Brown sold off their Gold Reserves, announcing it before doing so, when the markets were at a low point. One does not tell markets you are going to sell in that circumstance because it drives down the price. It was a stupid thing to do unless Brown corruptly sold off their reserves with a foreign buyer in mind.

Piers Morgan, who did the interview, massively softballs Brown here.

While ISIS Hijacks Radio Shows, Sweden Declares Milk to be a Racist Hate Symbol


While ISIS literally hijacks the airwaves to broadcast recruiting propaganda on radio shows, a Swedish government report has declared milk to be a racist hate symbol.
 
A report by the Total Defense Research Institute commissioned by the government concludes that both milk and the ‘OK’ hand sign are hate symbols that represent white supremacy.
 
The purpose of the report was to analyze Internet comments to “provide an insight into some digital environments whose common denominator is that they are all xenophobic.”
 
Other signs of “hatred” include using profanity as well as “expressions of anxiety or fear,” presumably over the thousands of Muslim migrants that pour into the country on a regular basis.
 
While the Swedish government and its subsidiaries seem to be extremely concerned with milk being used as a symbol to radicalize racists, actual ISIS recruitment propaganda is being broadcast on Swedish radio stations.
 
Returning ISIS jihadists are also being given welfare and housing, rapes are skyrocketing and urban terrorism and bombings are now commonplace.
 
One is tempted to say that this story could only come out of Sweden, but elements of the leftist media in America declared milk to be a symbol of racist hate months ago.
 
Back in February, Mic.com’s Jack Smith wrote that, “Milk is the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity in Donald Trump’s America,” because some trolls were seen chugging it as part of a troll of Shia LaBeouf’s “he will not divide us” art installation.
 
Back in March, the Daily 49er published an op-ed by a student at the California State University who claimed that many Americans, “have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.”
 
Samantha Diaz went on to ludicrously assert that the federal government has encouraged people to make milk an essential part of their diet. “despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.”
 
According to The Conversation, milk is “a symbol of neo-Nazi hate” because a handful of white supremacist forums have embraced it as that.
 
The lack of self-awareness in understanding that trolls deliberately embraced milk as a hate symbol as part of a prank in an attempt to force the media into treating such a ridiculous notion seriously seems to have been lost on most.
