If Saudi Arabia won’t take in Syrian refugees, why should the United States?  In recent weeks, we have heard a whole lot from Barack Obama about our “moral obligation” to take in refugees from Syria.  Well, if there is a “moral obligation” to help these refugees, then why aren’t more wealthy Islamic nations stepping up to the plate?  According to Amnesty International, since the beginning of the Syrian civil war Saudi Arabia has not accepted a single Syrian refugee.  Neither has Kuwait.  Neither has Qatar.  Neither has the United Arab Emirates.  These nations are absolutely swimming in money, and yet they have slammed the door on these desperately needy Islamic refugees.  So what precisely does that tell us?

When I first learned about this, I was quite upset.  So much pressure is being put on the U.S, Europe and other wealthy nations to take in vast numbers of Syrian refugees, and yet the wealthiest Islamic nations in the Middle East are completely shunning them.  The following comes from TruNews

While the United States and Europe argue over how many Syrian refugees to allow in, the richest Persian Gulf states have accepted exactly zero.

The Muslim countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council that include Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates steadfastly refuse to accept any Syrian refugees. Amnesty International, USA (AIUSA) tells The Daily Caller News Foundation they have not accepted a single refugee since the armed Syrian conflict erupted years ago.

“The Gulf States have accepted zero refugees registered with the United Nations and administered through the U.N. resettlement program. They have accepted zero,” Geoffrey Mock, the Syrian country coordinator for AIUSA, tells TheDCNF.

To be honest, if people are leaving Syria because they want to get away from ISIS, then they probably wouldn’t want to go to Saudi Arabia.

Yes, things are certainly more peaceful in Saudi Arabia than in Syria at the moment, but the truth is that the Saudis and ISIS have much in common.  Both embrace a radical version of Sunni Islam that is more than a little bit frightening, and both are run by religious fanatics that are absolutely ruthless.  Just consider the following chart on crime and punishment under both systems that was put out by Middle East Eye

Saudi Arabia And The Islamic State

Do you see what I am talking about?

Storm - Public Domain

By Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog

Have you noticed that things have gotten eerily quiet in the month of October?  After the chaos of late August and early September, many had anticipated that we would be dealing with a full-blown financial collapse by now, but instead we have entered a period of “dead calm” in which things have become exceedingly quiet in almost every way that you can possibly imagine.  Other “watchmen” that I highly respect have made the exact same observation.  Even though the economic numbers are screaming that we have entered a global recession, they aren’t really make any headline news.  A whole host of major financial institutions around the planet are currently in danger of collapsing and creating the next “Lehman Brothers moment”, but none of them has imploded just yet.  And of course Barack Obama seems bound and determined to start World War III.  On Monday, it was announced that he is sending a guided missile destroyer into Chinese waters in the South China Sea.  The Chinese have already stated that they might just start shooting if this happens, but Barack Obama doesn’t seem to care.  But until the shooting actually begins, that is not likely to upset the current tranquility that we are enjoying either.

To me, what we are experiencing at the moment would best be described as “the calm before the storm”.  If you are not familiar with this concept, this is how it is defined by How Stuff Works

Have you ever spent an afternoon in the backyard, maybe grilling or enjoying a game of croquet, when suddenly you notice that everything goes quiet? The air seems still and calm — even the birds stop singing and quickly return to their nests.

After a few minutes, you feel a change in the air, and suddenly a line of clouds ominously appears on the horizon — clouds with a look that tells you they aren’t fooling around. You quickly dash in the house and narrowly miss the first fat raindrops that fall right before the downpour. At this moment, you might stop and ask yourself, “Why was it so calm and peaceful right before the storm hit?”

Like so many others, I believe that a great storm is coming, and yet right at this moment things seem so peaceful.

Unfortunately, this period of peace and quiet is not going to last for long, and most Americans know deep down that something is seriously wrong with our nation.  In fact, a new WND/Clout poll has found that 85.3 percent of all likely voters in the United States believe that our country is going in the wrong direction…

The slow motion financial holocaust has been underway for some time now.

Goldman Sach recently commented that we are in the third wave of the great crisis. What happened in 2008 remains directly relevant to the personal financial risk that most Americans face at the brink of the next phase of the collapse.

It’s almost like they’re looking for a sacrificial lamb… the banks have gotten away with murder too many times to count. Those who might be tried under a truly fair system instead stand firm with their understanding of impunity, an arrangement befitting their position and stature in society, that they will never be seriously investigated, much less prosecuted, for their role in the manipulation that caused the biggest problems.

Worse, it is utterly clear that Obama’s Justice Department went out of their way to avoid prosecuting Wall Street executives – even despite pressure from Congress’ Oversight Panel, created as a condition of TARP, to do so as a result of piles of evidence that criminal misbehavior was behind the worst of the collapse.

Attorney General Eric Holder was nominally in charge of the Justice Department’s investigations – and it is well worth pointing out that he spent the entirety of his time after being Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, at Covington & Burling, a legal firm that specializes in representing top Wall Street institutions. Wikipedia notes:

In July 2015, Holder rejoined Covington & Burling, the law firm at which he worked before becoming Attorney General. The law firm’s clients have included many of the large banks Holder declined to prosecute for their alleged role in the financial crisis. Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone opined about the move, “I think this is probably the single biggest example of the revolving door that we’ve ever had.”

Clearly, with big banks as a client in-waiting and a past benefactor with him his law firm had a deep relationship, Holder was never realistically capable of considering a meaningful prosecution of the banks. Most of the rationale given to the public remained based around the despicable idea that banks were “too big to fail.”

Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald – notorious for launchign the first interviews and data dumps with Edward Snowden – taken on the criminality of the Wall Street banks during the period surrounding the 2008 financial crisis, focusing on the obstruction of the Justice Department, who have effectively refused to target higher-ups in any of their probes:

PBS’ Frontline broadcast a new one-hour report on one of the greatest and most shameful failings of the Obama administration: the lack of even a single arrest or prosecution of any senior Wall Street banker for the systemic fraud that precipitated the 2008 financial crisis: a crisis from which millions of people around the world are still suffering. What this program particularly demonstrated was that the Obama justice department, in particular the Chief of its Criminal Division, Lanny Breuer, never even tried to hold the high-level criminals accountable.

What Obama justice officials did instead is exactly what they did in the face of high-level Bush era crimes of torture and warrantless eavesdropping: namely, acted to protect the most powerful factions in the society in the face of overwhelming evidence of serious criminality. Indeed, financial elites were not only vested with immunity for their fraud, but thrived as a result of it, even as ordinary Americans continue to suffer the effects of that crisis.

[…] As “The Untouchables” put it: while no senior Wall Street executives have been prosecuted, “many small mortgage brokers, loan appraisers and even home buyers” have been.

[…]  the DOJ’s excuse for failing to prosecute Wall Street executives – that it was too hard to obtain convictions – “has always defied common sense – and all the more so now that a fuller picture is emerging of the range of banks’ reckless and lawless activities, including interest-rate rigging, money laundering, securities fraud and excessive speculation.”

[…]

As former Wall Street analyst Yves Smith wrote: “What went on at Lehman and AIG, as well as the chicanery in the CDO [collateralized debt obligation] business, by any sensible standard is criminal.” Even lifelong Wall Street defender Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve Chair, said in Congressional testimony that “a lot of that stuff was just plain fraud.”

[…]

“In 2009… “there was broad support for prosecuting Wall Street.” Nonetheless: “four years later, there have been no arrests of any senior Wall Street executives” … the key point: Obama officials never even tried.

Now dated by four years, PBS Frontline ran an investigative report on the topic: The Untouchables: How the Obama administration protected Wall Street from prosecutions  (which can be watched in full here).

As regular readers already know at SHTF, countless voices have come forward to expose the criminal fraud surrounding the banks, and the bipartisan criminal cover-up taking place in Washington.

Greenwald noted:

The reason there have been no efforts made to criminally investigate is obvious. Former banking regulator and current securities Professor Bill Black told Bill Moyers in 2009 that “Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury, and others in the administration, with the banks, are engaged in a cover up to keep us from knowing what went wrong.” In the documentary “Inside Job”, the economist Nouriel Roubini, when asked why there have been no such investigations, replied: “Because then you’d find the culprits.” Underlying all of that is what the Senate’s second-highest ranking Democrat, Dick Durbin, admitted in 2009: the banks “frankly own the place”.

Impunity has been the norm. Systemic money laundering for terrorists, gangs and drug cartels, the likes of which has been officially tied to institutions like HSBC and Wachovia – were settled with fines that represent a slap on the wrist to these ‘too big to jail’ globally-linked banks.

Meanwhile, the next wave is upon us.

scripted-obama(President Obama signs Executive Actions on guns in carefully scripted ceremony. January 2013) 

By Jeremiah Johnson – SHTFplan.com

The new script being played out by the administration is truly beautiful to watch in its detail and complexity.  There are so many characters in this screenplay, and here they are, listed as their performance in the playbill:

Barack Hussein Obama II
The bold, intelligent, courageous Hero

The Media
Faithfully reporting on the Hero’s progress

Guns
The true villains: they possess the murderers

Murderers
AKA: Renquists {as in Stoker’s “Dracula”} they are addled “tools” in the Gun’s hands

Accomplices
The U.S. Constitution and the 2nd Amendment

The Victim(s)
Similar to “The Fallen” in “The Hunger  Games,”  they are merely reasons for wailing and weeping as portrayed by the media

Props
All others are Stage Props: the schools, communities, the grieving public, etc.

In Montana, the local newspaper is little more than a collection of local colloquialisms surrounded by canned, nonsensical AP (that’s Associated Press) drivel that is labeled as news, but better described as propaganda, plain and simple.  There is a script here, and this is the way it has been running.

  1. Shootings! For whatever reasons, the shooters have been striking the defenseless public, all of a sudden, and in areas spread out all over the country?  No.  In a country of 312 million, there are always shootings going on; nevertheless, now the shootings are being reported.
  1. The defenseless: the panic-stricken public (with less testosterone in the men than in the women) practically falls all over itself, crying and yelling to be saved by the government.
  1. Chaos: Nobody knows what to do when The Evil Gun has struck!
  1. The reporters are on the story 24/7, with every little detail imaginable, and all fingers pointing back to The Evil Gun.
  1. The Public/Proletariat: Law enforcement officials, concerned parents (especially women), scared students and business leaders….everybody is scared and calling for action to stand up to The Evil Gun.
  1. Politicians are tense: What can we do? What law can we craft to save the peasants and villagers who must dwell far below Olympus/Aesgard?  We need bipartisan efforts, now!  We’ll do it!  Save the proletariat from The Evil Gun!  Help!  Who is our Savior?  [Then, all heads turn…upward….and the clouds turn golden and part, to reveal….]
  1. The Hero: the leader, the savior, the protector…enter Obama. Emotions: sadness, yet sternness, with clenched jaw and narrowed gaze, for the Fallen…steely-eyed…he will…he must…take Executive “Action” [technically, write an Executive Order] to lead his court, his “Camelot” of Congress, and all as the Champion of the People, the Protector of the Proletariat…He gazes into the mirror, and the words of Mariah Carey enter into his mind: “And a hero lies in you.”

The headlines are so carefully crafted, and they are brilliantly contrived to play upon the feelings and to speak for those with the attention spans of gnats and the minds of 12 year-old children.  These are the headlines out of the local paper (The Daily Inter Lake), of October 10, 2015 that “do a roundup” on all of the gun tragedy:

(Take note: even locally, the Associated Press is always there, a lurking vampire-devil)

(Local) Great Falls (AP):  “Youth Arrested for Gun Threat,” page A-2

Flagstaff, Arizona (AP): “Brawl Becomes Shooting at Arizona College,” page A-4

Roseburg, Oregon (AP): “Strong Emotions as Obama Visits Grieving Town,” page A-8

Gun Threat… Shooting… Obama… Grieving Town… all of these scripted headlines are to trigger emotions, and we already know that Obama (by his own words) said that he will take “Executive actions,” and these translate into Executive Orders, yet another dictate to be published in the Federal Register to bypass Congress and the established, legal, American way of creating laws in the United States.  The people are nothing more than props and hand puppets.  Firearms are always labeled as the great evil.  The person using the firearms is evil; however, it is the system of Constitutional Laws and existing freedoms under the Bill of Rights that are at fault.

The shooter is (in effect) also little more than a prop for The Evil Gun, that (akin to the demon possessing Linda Blair in “The Exorcist”) made the shooter pick it up and shoot people.  Readers, all of these scripted actions are all contrived and specifically tailored to allow Obama to make Executive Orders that will support the UN gun confiscation agenda that his administration (via Kerry) signed off on already.

The regime is stirring up public opinion at every angle, and all of the mainstream media is completely complicit in the promulgation of the scripted “Overton Window” actions to create new public perception and push the envelope even further to the end goal: National Gun Registration and (eventual) Confiscation and (eventual) repeal of the 2nd Amendment.  All in the name of safety, yet one question remains:

            Who will keep us safe from those ensuring our safety?

I have been deliberating constantly since this entire avalanche of reporting these incidents on a phrase of Thomas Jefferson as follows (I paraphrase):

“Those who beat their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not.”

This is true and has been proven throughout history.  In order for the endgame to occur, the American Citizen must first be disarmed.  In order for tyranny to proceed, the United States must first become Australia and be weaponless, defenseless citizenry at the beck and call of the government.  All of these benevolent governments emerge from their chrysalis as fully fanged vampires and then attack the defenseless public when gun controls have been successfully implemented within their borders.

Complacency is going to be the true death of it all, as Obama will “back door” us (probably on a weekend while everyone is glued to the television) the way he did with the NDAA… and the recent TPP deal.  We’ll wake up on a Monday morning, and there it will be: an Executive Order by Obama disarming us…to “protect” us.  The order will go into the Federal Register…take effect in 30 days…the public will not comply…and then Obama will call in the United Nations (as per agreements even made during the Bush Jr. days and before for foreign powers to “help” the U.S. restore law and order) and declare Martial Law.

You have seen it before, and you’ll see it again.  Obama is the Hero in a bad, B-movie that has been playing in cinemas for 8 years with no intermission, no cessation.  The script is rolling, and it remains to be seen whether the people will assume their role as Director and choose: either “Action” or “Cut,” regarding the scene.  Let us hope it will be the latter.

World War 3 - Public Domain

Why has Barack Obama airdropped 50 tons of ammunition into areas that “moderate rebels” in Syria supposedly control?  This is essentially the equivalent of poking the Russians directly in the eyes.  Much of this ammunition will end up in the hands of those that the Russians are attempting to bomb into oblivion, and so to Russia it appears that we are attempting to make their job much harder.  And of course the truth is that there aren’t really any “moderate rebels” in Syria at all.  Nearly all of the groups that are fighting are made up primarily of radical jihadists and/or hired mercenaries.  Personally, I don’t see anyone over there that you could call “the good guys”.  At the end of the day, the U.S. supports just about anyone that wants to get rid of the Assad regime, and the Russians are working very hard to keep Assad in power.  Just like the civil war in Ukraine, the conflict in Syria is in great danger of being transformed into a proxy war between the United States and Russia, and many fear that these conflicts could eventually be setting the stage for World War III.

The ferocity of Russian airstrikes in Syria has surprised observers all over the planet, and over the past couple of days these airstrikes have been extended to include some new areas

Russian Air Forces have extended the range of their airstrikes on Islamic State positions in Syria to four provinces, focusing primarily on demolishing fortified installations and eliminating supply bases and the terrorists’ infrastructure.

Over the last 24 hours Russian aircraft have attacked terrorist positions in the Hama, Idlib, Latakia and Raqqa provinces of Syria. In total, 64 sorties targeted 63 Islamic State installations, among them 53 fortified zones, 7 arms depots, 4 training camps and a command post.

When I read reports like this, I am deeply troubled.  The Obama administration claims that it has been bombing ISIS positions in Syria for over a year.  So why in the world do these targets still exist?

Was the U.S. military incapable of finding these installations?

That doesn’t seem likely.

So why weren’t they destroyed long ago?

Did the Obama administration not want them destroyed for some reason?

What seems abundantly clear is that the Russians are doing what the Obama administration was either unwilling or unable to do.  There is now mass panic among ISIS fighters, and thousands of them are fleeing the country

global-governance

By Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog

The United States Congress is about to vote (Friday, June 11) to give president Barack Obama unprecedented powers which will effectively give up the USA to new global governance.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership will shatter America’s sovereignty and is a treaty that everyone should oppose (in my opinion).

WHY? Because if it’s so good for the country, then why is it being kept top secret and not being released until AFTER it’s voted on? Is this not entirely and completely absurd? Who in their right minds would vote on something which is kept secret, not released for public debate, and no text of which has been released even to Congress? What is the matter with us?!

Congress is about to give president Obama the authority to bypass Congress itself!!

The United States is in the final stages of negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive free-trade agreement with Mexico, Canada, Japan, Singapore and seven other countries. Who will benefit from the TPP? American workers? Consumers? Small businesses? Taxpayers? Or the biggest multinational corporations in the world at the expense of our sovereignty as a nation?

obama-secret-treaty

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

The Obama administration is feverishly working with foreign lawmakers and officials on a new Trans-Pacific Parternship (TPP) trade agreement. Yet what may seem like business as usual is anything but.

The President has made it a point to keep any details of the agreement completely secret, so much so that what amounts to a gag order has been placed on anyone who has anything to do with the bill. Even members of Congress are unable to discuss the contents of the bill with each other or in public, and anyone who is invited to discussions over the bill must leave cell phones and staff members behind. Since not even Republicans have yet to spill the beans about the details of the agreement, one can only assume that those attending the meetings are doing so under threat of criminal prosecution or worse if they talk.

This, of course, begs the question: What is so important to the Obama administration that it has to be kept secret from the American public until after the agreement has been passed?

What could possibly be so critical to national security that the purportedly “most transparent” Presidential administration in history says no one can talk about it?

Could it be that whatever is being negotiated is so significant that if the American people got wind of what was taking place there would be a collective outcry or widespread protests in the streets?

According to Gun Owners of America, this is exactly what’s happening, and it is nothing short of shocking.

Gun import bans … Microstamping of firearms … Ammunition bans … The full implementation of the anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty … Illegal amnesty which locks in millions of new, anti-gun voters.

This anti-gun wish list could be part of the secret trade agreement that President Obama is getting ready to spring on the Congress.

This trade pact is called “fast track,” and what it means is that Obama can write any form of gun control he chooses into a trade agreement — import bans, amnesty, etc.

And this agreement DOESN’T need two-thirds vote in the Senate, as a treaty would. When completed, the agreement is merely subject to a majority vote in both Houses … it can’t be filibustered … it can’t be amended … and the GOP can’t refuse to consider it.

Top Secret TPP means you won’t know what’s in the bill

Reports have already surfaced that the TOP SECRET draft contains a whole chapter with a European Union-style provision allowing unlimited migration from Mexico into the United States. This would fulfill Obama’s dream — which he begun with Executive Amnesty — to import millions of new anti-gun (liberal) voters into the country.

Of course, we can’t quote for you any of the language in the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement because the document is TOP SECRET. Obama won’t reveal it, even to most congressmen, until Congress has given it its imprimatur by allowing it to pass under fast track procedures.

On Monday, Politico reported:

If you want to hear the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal the Obama administration is hoping to pass, you’ve got to be a member of Congress, and you’ve got to go to classified briefings and leave your staff and cellphone at the door.

If you’re a [congressional] member who wants to read the text, you’ve got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving.

And no matter what, you can’t discuss the details of what you’ve read.

Truly, even more than with ObamaCare, this is a case of “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it.”

Is it outside of the realm of possibility that the Obama administration is trying, once again, to partner with a foreign governing body to restrict gun ownership in America? Would President Obama cede the sovereignty of our borders to the United Nations?

Call us fringe conspiracy theory lunatics, but given the secrecy surrounding the treaty one can only assume the worst.

It should be clear that the eventual goal of the foreign entities like United Nations is total disarmament of the American people.

Clinton confidant Dick Morris explained in 2012 how restrictions outlined in a foreign treaty such as the new trade agreement might work:

It’s entirely a backdoor effort to force gun registration and eventually bans and restrictions with the act of the United States Congress – to do it with international treaty.

One of the deadly parts about this is that when a treaty is signed and made binding in the United States it acquires the force of a Constitutional Amendment. Under the Supremacy Clause, every Congress and every state legislature has to honor that treaty, unless a Constitutional Amendment is passed to the contrary or unless all the other signatories let the U.S. out of the treaty.

So this would be permanent, long-term gun control…all done without Congress.

His views have been reinforced by an ambassador who sat in on the UN Small Treaty negotiations:

“In New York, right here on our own shores, we’ve got a Trojan horse. They won’t accept U.S. firearms policy. They want to take the decision away from the U.S. electorate and undermine our Constitution.”
Ambassador Faith Whittlesey
US Delegate to UN Small Arms Conference
January 2012 

Moreover, just so we’re clear, the plan to disarm Americans has been in motion for many years. Last year we reported that the United Nations was operating within the borders of the United States already and according to their own job postings at the UN web site, they were actively recruiting Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Specialists.

According to the United Nations information page on ‘DDR’ operations, the New York post will involve various aspects related to the process by which a governing organization would confiscate firearms, all of which target what the U.N. calls “small arms.”

Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.

Demobilization is the formal and controlled discharge of active combatants from armed forces and groups, including a phase of “reinsertion” which provides short-term assistance to ex-combatants.

Reintegration is the process by which ex-combatants acquire civilian status and gain sustainable employment and income. It is a political, social and economic process with an open time-frame, primarily taking place in communities at the local level.

Like Obamacare, we’ll soon find out the legal language behind the new Trans-Pacific Partnership. And like Obamacare, we can predict with a fair amount of certainty that this “free trade” agreement will be anything but free.
