The Turkish/Iranian Ottomans

“Turkey is ditching Saudi Arabia and partnering with Iran. … Iran’s decision to stand with Erdogan (against the recent coup) cemented the new relationship and resulted in Turkey realizing that Tehran is its most reliable friend in the region. …

“We have constantly been predicting and warning about all these developments. The recent Turkey-Iranian alliance will change the course of events in the region and push Saudi Arabia toward a complete isolation. Americans had thought that the conflict was a Sunni-Shiite divide. But Sunni Turkey acted as a unifier between Sunnis and Shiites. The Iranian revolutionary leaders are Azeri Turks and have kinship with the Ottomans. The Turks also do not hold the same animosity towards Shiite ideology, as does Wahhabist Saudi Arabia. When it comes to the Arabs, Turkey holds a historic long memory against Saudi Arabia’s aid to oust the Ottomans during the Sharif Hussein revolt (1916-1918) when the Turks shelled Mecca and crushed the Black Stone. If Turkey did not mind shelling the Kaaba, why would it mind the end of Al Saud? …

“Iran and Turkey are not divided as most have thought, they are locked into an alliance.

Fed-Swamp Chief

Is New Fed Chief A “Swamp Critter Extraordinaire”?

November 17, 2017


– Powell will likely continue to protect Wall Street over Main Street
– Savers should diversify to protect themselves from Fed’s ponzi policies

Editor: Mark O’Byrne

… Powell is just (Trump’s) latest appointment. With an estimated fortune of $55 million the likely new Fed Chair  has spent his career in Washington flip-flopping between roles in both regulation and industry. He is now set to take the wheel at a job whose sole role is to steer the US (and) global economy. …

Powell is a Republican who built a vast wealth as a partner at (war-mongering, Bush family connected) Carlyle. … Once he is Fed Chair he will be  the richest Fed chair since … 1948. …

Powell has often backed Ms. Yellen on a number of issues from raising interest rates to reducing the Fed’s balance sheet. He has supported every policy decision since joining the Fed … . On paper Yellen improved the economy, unemployment has fallen and the US Fed’s balance sheet is set to be reduced. However these ‘improvements’ aren’t being felt by US citizens.

Hard-working individuals, from the upper middle classes downwards are being forced to choose between putting their savings into a bubblicious stock market or receive nothing in return (or worse) from their bank account. Meanwhile the economy is awash with food stamps, untenable personal loans and growing inequality. …

(Going forward,) there might be some difference in bank regulation. Yellen has often given a somewhat skeptical view of the pro-business approach by the current White House. … Powell (may be) easily persuaded by the views of others. Others who might just not have the entire country’s interests at heart, say… everyone else from a pro Wall Street position? …

As Bill Bonner explains:

The important thing, from our point of view, is that he can be relied upon to do exactly as expected.

Like Ms. Yellen, he will be in favor of shrinking the Fed’s balance sheet… and raising interesting rates… until the money supply tightens and all hell breaks loose.

Then, he will move heaven and earth to protect the Deep State from bankruptcy… with an aggressive program of QE Encore (or whatever else it is that Wall St. wants – icliks).

… In a political climate where the President will bully publicly we perhaps need a Fed Chair who is willing to shout about any concerns he has. Powell seems to be a people-pleaser. Powell is unlikely to make life difficult for Trump and the rest of the swamp. Worryingly we may be faced with little upset as it will be business as usual but this may result in far more upset in the wider economy. …

He will no doubt have to have a close working relationship with the US Treasury Secretary whose department works hand in hand with the Federal Reserve to preserve economic stability.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is a (major swamp-scum) banker turned Hollywood film producer with little known experience of policy and public finance. To look at his resume is to basically read a tailor-made mockery of Trump’s pledge to drain the swamp of ‘bankers’ and ‘globalists’. …

So with untrained, wealthy Powell keen to people-please at every opportunity and Mnuchin showing off his vast wealth and lack of understanding for the poor, things aren’t looking promising when it comes to Making American Great Again (at least not for the average American – icliks). …

The power of the U.S. dollar is so extensive that Powell’s leadership will have far-reaching consequences around the world. Powell will likely take instruction from Trump and his Wall Street swampies … . Trump’s appointment of Powell, the latest addition to the Goldman Sachs / Wall Street line-up, confirms Trump’s plans to let the wealthy counter parties take precedence over the masses. …

Alaska’s Marine Holocaust

Scientists Shocked As Fisheries Collapse On West Coast: ‘It’s The Worst We’ve Seen”

Mac Slavo

SHTFplan.com

The Gulf of Alaska cod populations appears to have taken a nose-dive. Scientists are shocked at the collapse and starving fish, making this  the “worst they’ve ever seen.” … “This is a big deal,” Paine (executive director of United Catcher Boats) said. “We just don’t see these (cod) year classes disappear from one year to the next.” …

Many are blaming “climate change” for the effects (of course) on the fish, although scientists aren’t directly correlating the two events. (But I am blaming Fukushima.)

CIA/MI6 ISIS Collusion

Bombshell Report Confirms US Coalition Struck A Deal With ISIS

At a moment of widespread acknowledgement that the short-lived Islamic State is no longer a reality, …  Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon that the US is preparing for a long term military commitment in Syria to fight ISIS … .  “The enemy hasn’t declared that they’re done with the area yet, so we’ll keep fighting as long as they want to fight,” Mattis said. “We’re not just going to walk away right now before the Geneva process has traction.” …

Mattis was referring to the stalled peace talks in Geneva which some analysts have described as a complete failure (especially as the Geneva process unrealistically stipulates the departure of Assad) … .

Mattis’ declaration of an open ended military commitment … came the same day that the BBC confirmed that the US and its Kurdish SDF proxy (Syrian Democratic Forces) cut a deal with ISIS which allowed for the evacuation of possibly thousands (some say 4,000) of ISIS members and their families from Raqqa.

According to yesterday’s bombshell BBC report:

The BBC has uncovered details of a secret deal that let hundreds of Islamic State fighters and their families escape from Raqqa, under the gaze of the US and British-led coalition and Kurdish-led forces who control the city. A convoy included some of IS’s most notorious members and – despite reassurances – dozens of foreign fighters. Some of those have spread out across Syria, even making it as far as Turkey.

… ISIS terrorists being given free passage by coalition forces to leave Raqqa was a story which we and other outlets began to report last June, and which Moon of Alabama and Al-Masdar News exposed in detail a full month prior to the BBC report. … But it’s a familiar pattern by now: yesterday’s proxies become today’s terrorists, which return to being proxies again, all as part of justifying permanent US military presence on another nation’s sovereign territory. …

Gas War for Greater Israel

“The Great Gas War has already two distinct fronts,” says Golem XIV in  Lebanon – the next front in the Great Gas War (11/7/2017), referring to Ukraine and Syria/Lebanon. “It looks to me that Lebanon is being targeted as the next fron.. . (Golem XIV).”

Golem says, Reuters reported,

Saudi Arabia said on Monday that Lebanon had declared war against it because of attacks against the Kingdom by the Lebanese Shi‘ite group Hezbollah.

They can say that because besides being considered a terrorist organization by numerous countries, Hezbollah has seats on the Lebanese parliament.

The announcement comes, “after Israel, Saudi’s long time though largely un-offical best friend in the region,  has been very publicly preparing to renew its own war with Lebanon – or more accurately with Hezbollah (Lebanon – the next front in the Great Gas War, by Golem XIV on NOVEMBER 7, 2017).”

Golem XIV suggests, however, “a powerful reason that a new war with Hezbollah may be in the offing is because Lebanon is the next link in any gas pipeline that could potentially bring Iranian Gas to Europe. That was the reason the West decided to “liberate” the Syrian people and it will be why they decide to enforce the same salvation upon the people of Lebanon.”

“As we explained in part I, On The Verge Of Catastrophe: Saudi Arabia Says Lebanon Declared War, the anti-Iran and anti-Shia alliance of convenience between the Saudis and Israelis (and the Western powers) appears to have placed Lebanon in the cross hairs of yet another looming Israeli-Hezbollah war. This will begin as economic war, but could soon become actual war. … In the next war Israel will face a unified front of Syrian forces, Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said … (As Israel And Saudi Arabia Target Lebanon, What Are Hezbollah’s Military Capabilities, by Tyler Durden, Nov 9, 2017).” Not to mention Russia, Iran, and China.

This proposed war with Hezbollah in Lebanon comes in the context of a sweeping counter-coup in Saudi Arabia by the pro Aramco IPO faction led by the Crown-prince Mohammed bin Salman. The idea seems to be that once the major international players all own a piece of the action, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq (Greater Israel) can pipeline oil and gas through Syria and Ukraine into Europe. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like the losing faction in the Saudi “anti-corruption” sweep is the prior (and pro-Iran) Clinton Foundation crowd.

Is it a coincidence or are these events timed to coincide as well with Trump’s meetings with the Chinese and possibly with Putin?

Forget the Clintons?

Bill Holter comments on the Saudi roundup initiated this last weekend by the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, based on corruption and money laundering charges:

It is my opinion, the Saudis are now triggering a move to accept yuan for oil. Those arrested can be seen as players “with” the deep state and aligned with “Hillary’s crew” for a lack of better term. Alwaleed is a major shareholder of Citi and Twitter, a Trump basher and financial supporter of Hillary’s campaign. A look at the others arrested show long time support of “the U.S.” and the petrodollar. One might think Prince Salman undertook these arrests with a “lean” toward the West, based on who was arrested I highly doubt it but we will soon see. Remember, Prince Salman has recently met with both Mr. Xi and Mr. Putin. Saudi Arabia also announced the purchases of S400 weapons from Russia (I asked at the time if this was not a very bad sign for Saudi Arabia’s allegiance to the West?). (The Plan comes Together?, Nov. 6, 2017)

Brandon Smith, in his Saudi Coup Signals War And The New World Order Reset of 11/15/17, says,

Prince Mohammed’s revolutionary “Vision for 2030” developed as he entered power was touted as a means to end Saudi reliance on oil revenues to support economic stability. However, I believe this plan is NOT about ending reliance on oil, but ending reliance on the U.S. dollar. In fact, the plan indicates a move away from the dollar as the world’s petrocurrency and a de-pegging of the Riyal from the dollar.

Prince Mohammed has also established much deeper ties to Russia and China, creating bilateral agreements which may end up removing the dollar as the mechanism for oil trade between the nations.

You would think that this kind of strategy would be highly damaging to the West and to American interests in particular and that the corporate establishment would be doing everything in their power to stop it. However, this is not at all the case. In reality, the globalist establishment is fully behind Mohammed Bin Sulman’s “Vision for 2030.”

Corporate behemoths such as the Carlyle Group (Bush family, etc), Goldman SachsBlackstone and Blackrock have ALL been backing the Vision for 2030 and Prince Mohammed through his Public Investment Fund (PIF), of which he is the chairman.

Trillions in capital are flowing through PIF, most of it from the coffers of globalist establishment companies. Once again I point out that the so-called “East versus West division” and the Eastern “opposition” to the globalists is complete nonsense; banking elites and globalists are the true influence behind the move away from the dollar, as the Saudi example and the Vision for 2030 shows. The end of the dollar as world reserve works in their favor — it is planned.

I completely missed this angle in my previous post, Forget Al-Waleed bin Talal! In it I suggested that it would be the West that would be buying up the Aramco IPO. However it looks as though buyers will be worldwide, and the house of Saud is expanding its brand from Petro-Dollar to New-World Ordollar.

This appears to involve the formation of something that could be called “Greater Israel” (a coalition between Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq) and some kind of military aggression in Lebanon.

Forget Al-Waleed bin Talal!

Well, that didn’t take long. It was less than 6 months ago that allegiance to the Eye of Sauron was solemnly sworn by the leaders of the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt: Donald Trump, Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. This event commemorated installation of a state of the art intelligence gathering facility in Riyadh.

   saudi-spying

At the time, Nathan Leal commented that, “It will use 21st century technology to take (surveillance and government sponsored) terrorism to the next level (as quoted in Trump and the Orb of … Suveillance).” Apparently, we have arrived at the next level.

The pact represented the start of a new era. Subsequent to this pact, one of the first things that the Saudi king did was to replace the crown prince (then his nephew) with his son, Mohammed bin Salman. This was the beginning of a transfer of power that we have now seen significantly moved forward over recent days.

When promoted, Mohammed had already been spearheading efforts to ween Saudi Arabia off of its dependence on oil and create a $1.9 trillion fund with which to diversify its economy by selling off part of its national oil company, Aramco.

Key reform policies currently in place — such as the Vision 2030 plan and a planned IPO by Saudi oil giant Aramco — were already being driven by him. (CNN, June 21, 2017)

The Saudis have to do something. At current oil prices they will run out of money in five years. According to Marengo Capital, the plan has a significant international dimension. Once Western players are invested in Aramco, a global carbon treaty is to be used to suppress its competitors, and the new consortium will lock in as the worlds premiere oil supplier.

Naturally, there has been resistance to these plans, and who is on what side of this is difficult to determine, other than within Saudi Arabia itself. Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, along with 10 other princes and 38 cabinet ministers, have been busted in an “anti-corruption” sweep and their assets confiscated. They are on the losing side.

(INTELLIHUB) — Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s recent arrest, along with the arrest of 10 other princes and over 38 cabinet ministers, has created quite a stir … .

It looks like King Salman’s commitment to the Eye of Sauron has paid off, and after only about five months of surveillance his police were able to nail these guys. I guess they weren’t aware of the upgrade. At any rate this is a sudden re-balancing and consolidation of power. King Salman and Prince Mohammed are on the winning side.

It is not just these 11 Saudi princes. Eight more were killed in a helicopter crash:

The shocking latest twist in what has been a chaotic weekend in Saudi Arabia is news that a helicopter transporting 8 high-ranking Saudi officials (including prince Mansour bin-Muqrin) has crashed in the south of the Kingdom, near the border with Yemen. … Crown Prince Mansour bin-Muqrin, deputy Emir of Asir province … was a son of Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the ex-intelligence chief who briefly was Saudi Arabia’s crown prince from January to April 2015. (ZeroHedge, Nov. 6, 2017)

All eight aboard were killed, and among them son of the ex-intelligence chief. Out with the old and in with the new, eh? In context we must assume this was not an accident. ZeroHedge continues:

The crash site is reported near … Yemen. The area has seen a number of cross-border retaliatory attacks from Yemen in recent months, reportedly leading to casualties among Saudi troops. …

The crash also comes after Saudi Arabia yesterday intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile near Riyadh’s international airport after it was fired from Yemen in an escalation of the kingdom’s war against Iran-backed Huthi rebels. (ZeroHedge, Nov. 6, 2017)

Let’s keep our tally. Adding the 8 killed to the 11 arrested brings the “roundup” to 19  members of the Saudi ruling class, plus the 38 cabinet ministers. To this we add the Yemeni missile. Th Yemeni rebel forces are understood to be backed by Shia Iran. In addition to this, the hitherto Saudi-backed Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, had to resign after the Saudis announced that Lebanon had declared war against them due to overweening Iranian influence within the country. The event was part of a regional push by the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq to suppress Iranian/Shia influence within what Israel privately considers “Greater Israel” – an entity yet to be fully formed.

As is already well-known, the Saudi and Israeli common cause against perceived Iranian influence and expansion in places like Syria, Lebanon and Iraq of late has led the historic bitter enemies down a pragmatic path of unspoken cooperation as both seem to have placed the break up of the so-called “Shia crescent” as their primary policy goal in the region. (“Explosive” Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War, ZeroHedge, Nov. 7, 2017

It was in the interests of Greater Israel that ISIS was formed; created by CIA and the Russian Jewish Mafia, to destabilize and rebalance the powers in the region (See War with Syria). But now as the new national interrelationships are firming up, the usefulness and presence of ISIS in the middle east is ending. U.S. military has been seen evacuating them. It only makes sense. Is ISIS being moved to the United States?

In America, it turns out the recently arrested Alwaleed bin Talal and eugenicist Bill Gates together own 90% of the company that manages floors 35-39 of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Such management gives them an operational presence there. This is similar in concept to the Russian mob operating from Trump Tower in NYC or “Little Moscow” in Sunny Isles Florida.

Another Alwaleed company, ETS Risk Management, described as a private military company, was reportedly, “on the ground before, during, and after the Oct. 1 attack in Las Vegas.” (Recently incarcerated Saudi Prince linked to 5 independently managed floors inside Mandalay Bay, by Shepard Ambellas – November 5, 2017). This helps explain various eye-witness reports about the Mandalay shooting.

But forget Alwaleed bin Talal. His career is now over. And ISIS is over — at least in the Middle East. And now Greater Israel has a glorious future, at least until the Ottoman Dragon revives.
