Trump Slaps 5% Tariff On Mexican Goods, Will Increase Until Mexico Helps Prevent Border Invasions Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 18:25:59 Id: 60b695 [Preview] No. 14800 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In a surprise announcement that could compromise a major trade deal, President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is slapping a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports to pressure the country to do more to crack down on the surge of illegal invaders crossing the border.

He said the percentage will gradually increase “until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied.”

Trump made the announcement by tweet after telling reporters earlier Thursday that he was planning “a major statement” that would be his “biggest” so far on the border.

“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,” he wrote, “at which time the Tariffs will be removed.”

Trump has accused the Mexican government of failing to do enough to crack down on the surge of hostile invaders who have been flowing to the US from third world shitholes including El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

The White House said Trump would be using the International Emergency Economic Powers Act to implement the tariff.

“If the illegal migration crisis is alleviated through effective actions taken by Mexico, to be determined in our sole discretion and judgment, the Tariffs will be removed,” the White House said in a statement.

Good! Monsanto Is Finally Getting A Taste Of Its Own Poison Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 18:22:43 Id: b2985e [Preview] No. 14798 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Monsanto is the quintessential evil corporation: >>>/endpol/1140

In the 1960s it created Agent Orange, a defoliant–hardcore weedkiller–which the USA used during the Vietnam war. The military sprayed vast swaths of the jungle causing horrible health effects like cancer and birth defects in American veterans and Vietnamese civilians exposed to the chemical.

Then Monsanto brought their products home to the USA and started dumping its poison on the homeland.

Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup, widely used as a weed killer. Monsanto holds patents on gene edited varieties of crops modified to withstand the herbicide while weeds die around them. It is also used to kill wheat plants for easier harvesting.

This means that practically everyone in the USA who consumes mainstream food products is exposed to Roundup.

Evidence suggests that gluten intolerance could be related instead to glyphosate intolerance. And the rise of certain types of cancer in the USA also corresponds to the use of Monsanto’s weed killer.

US regulatory agencies like the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) claim that glyphosate is safe for humans and the environment.

But American courts begs to differ. About 13,000 civil cases against Monsanto are moving through the court system.

The first three came back in favor of the plaintiffs. The evidence showed that Roundup caused cancer in people exposed to the weedkiller.

Trump Sends 1,500 More Troops to the Middle East Reader 05/27/2019 (Mon) 02:16:48 Id: 792b7c [Preview] No. 14781 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Everything that Donald Trump has said about withdrawing troops from the Middle East has proven now to be total and complete bullshit. I gave him the benefit of the doubt on numerous occasions, but he has failed to follow through on his promises. And now he has just decided to send 1,500 more soldiers to the Middle East because Iran is allegedly doing something bad.

[What the author means is: He refused to listen to me because he was a stubborn ass MIGApede.]

The United States said it was deploying 1,500 additional troops to the Middle East to counter “credible threats” from Iran in a move denounced by Tehran on Saturday as “a threat to international peace”. “Increased US presence in our region is very dangerous and a threat to international peace and security and must be confronted,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told the official IRNA news agency. The escalation of the US military presence follows a decision in early May to send an aircraft carrier strike force and B-52 bombers in a show of force against what Washington’s leaders believed was an imminent Iranian plan to attack US assets. And it comes as the Trump administration is planning to bypass congressional restrictions to sell arms to Saudi Arabia, a close US ally and Iran’s arch-enemy in the region.

Basically what’s happened here is that Israel passed some bullshit evidence about Iran allegedly doing some terrible things to John Bolton. This has been a big part of what was used to justify the deployment of additional military assets into the region. But nobody has shown or explained what this evidence is and why it justifies potentially doing a war against Iran. Comically we have Zionist lunatics like Mike Pompeo claiming that they aren’t seeking a war with Iran while saying he has some type of photographic evidence proving Iranian wrongdoing. Well if all of this is true, why the fuck are you deploying military assets near their border? And where are these photos showing actual wrongdoing?

What would Pompeo say if the Chinese deployed soldiers into Canada and the Chinese claimed that they weren’t seeking war with the United States? We would say that they were full of shit. The fact of the matter is that Iran has every right to feel threatened. Their country is being surrounded by American military assets and is under American economic sanctions both of which are hostile actions against them. This fiasco obviously has nothing to do with American national security interests. Provoking a war with Iran does not benefit America in any way shape or form. This has everything to do with protecting Israel’s national security interests. Trump should be impeached for putting the interests of Israel over the interests of America but the Democrats are fumbling around with nonsense about Russia and tax returns. The whole situation is retarded and further indicative of the Jewish clown world that we live in.

This does not surprise me at all, considering he is just another puppet for ZOG and it has been clear within weeks of taking office. Same with Obama before his election in 2008, if you recall. Obama promised to get us out of the wars and once he got into office he started re-locating troops to different areas around the Middle East and got us into Syria (helping Mossad arm and fund ISIS/ISIL terrorist mercenaries in attempts to undermine and destabilize Assad's government and Syria itself).

Stacey Abrams And Jared Kushner To Attend Oligarch Bilderberg Cartel Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:31:50 Id: fd17f3 [Preview] No. 14796 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The 67th Bilderberg Meeting will take place from May 30 to June 2, 2019 in Montreux, Switzerland, the group has just announced.

It is believed that the announcement was made only days before the meeting to make it as difficult as possible for protesters and independent journalists to make it to the event.

The annual Bilderberg Meeting is a three-day forum for informal discussions, between global insiders. Every year, approx. 130 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, labour, academia and the media comprise the group. About two-thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America.

The first Meeting took place at the Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, The Netherlands, from May 29 to 31 1954. Thus, the name.

The Meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed.

According to the group, this is this year's agenda:

1. A Stable Strategic Order
2. What Next for Europe?
3. Climate Change and Sustainability
4. China
5. Russia

Deliberate Destabilization: DHS Flying Illegal Aliens To US Cities, Releasing Them Into Communities Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:27:46 Id: 07dd09 [Preview] No. 14794 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The Department of so-called 'Homeland Security' (DHS) is flying illegal aliens into cities across the United States and releasing them directly into American communities, according to reports.

A report by the Associated Press states that aside from DHS releasing almost 200,000 borders crossers and illegal aliens into four American communities since December 2018, the agency is flying them directly into U.S. cities and then releasing them:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has historically ensured that families had travel plans before releasing them, but last year it shortened custody stays in response to the growing numbers of arrivals from Mexico. They began dropping unwanted illegals off in cities along the border at burgeoning shelters and bus stations.

At the same time, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which turns over border crossers to ICE after arresting them, has begun flying migrants to other cities for processing and is releasing them directly into communities without going through ICE, saying their own facilities are at capacity.

Breitbart.com reports:

Similarly, a report by the New York Times detailed similar cases where DHS has started flying border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. before releasing them.

The Times reported:

Note that this is after all the disease outbreaks among 'migrants' were reported, as well as documented increases in crime rates wherever these illegals are sent. The only thing I can laugh about is that many of the cities they are being sent to are leftist cities in commie-run states. So at least some of their comrades will get a taste of their own poison.

America Sold Out? Nearly 30 Million Acres Of US Farmland Now Owned By Foreigners Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:23:41 Id: 79e7c7 [Preview] No. 14793 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
All across America, U.S. farmland is being gobbled up by foreign interests. So when we refer to “the heartland of America”, the truth is that vast stretches of that “heartland” is now owned by foreigners, and most Americans have no idea that this is happening. These days, a lot of people are warning about the “globalization” of the world economy, but in reality our own soil is rapidly being “globalized”. When farms are locally owned, the revenue that those farms take in tends to stay in local communities. But with foreign-owned farms there is no guarantee that will happen. And while there is plenty of food to go around this is not a major concern, but what happens when a food crisis erupts and these foreign-owned farms just keep sending their produce out of the country? There are some very serious national security concerns here, and they really aren’t being addressed. Instead, the amount of farmland owned by foreigners just continues to increase with each passing year.

Prior to seeing the headline to this article, how much U.S. farmland would you have guessed that foreigners now own?

Personally, I had no idea that foreigners now own nearly 30 million acres. The following comes from NPR…

American soil.

Those are two words that are commonly used to stir up patriotic feelings. They are also words that can’t be be taken for granted, because today nearly 30 million acres of U.S. farmland are held by foreign investors. That number has doubled in the past two decades, which is raising alarm bells in farming communities.

How did we allow this to happen?

And actually laws regarding land ownership vary greatly from state to state. Some states have placed strict restrictions on foreign land ownership, while in other states it is “a free-for-all”…

“Texas is kind of a free-for-all, so they don’t have a limit on how much land can be owned,” say’s Ohio Farm Bureau’s Ty Higgins, “You look at Iowa and they restrict it — no land in Iowa is owned by a foreign entity.”

Ohio, like Texas, also has no restrictions, and nearly half a million acres of prime farmland are held by foreign-owned entities. In the northwestern corner of the state, below Toledo, companies from the Netherlands alone have purchased 64,000 acres for wind farms.

Good! Nationalist Parties Buck EU Status Quo In Recent European Elections Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:22:26 Id: 379ed3 [Preview] No. 14791 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The preliminary results from the European Parliamentary elections are in. And just like the polls anticipated, the 'pro-European' (EU) status quo has suffered a serious blow.

Winning over 30% of seats, EU-sceptic parties and anti-establishment groups now control their largest bloc of votes since the first EU Parliamentary election in 1979.

Meanwhile, the long-ruling "grand coalition" of center-right and center-left parties (the EPP, a collection of center right parties, and S&D, a collection of center-left parties) lost its combined majority, though both coalition groups retained a plurality of seats (180, or 24%, for EPP, and 146, or 19.4%, for S&D).

Though pro-European groups together maintain a clear majority, this broad grouping has become increasingly fragmented, which could complicate policy making, while a strong showing from eurosceptics will mount a serious challenge to the status quo, according to a group of analysts from Deutsche Bank.

This shows us two things: first, the pro-EU camp has definitely become more fragmented and could not prevent losing some seats to the Eurosceptics who dream if not (anymore) of the end of the EU at least of a substantially different one. Second, pro-EU group together will still hold a clear majority of two-thirds of the seats in the next EP. This means: policymaking for them will become more complex and require broader cross-party agreements and discipline. But Eurosceptics will not be able block decisions unless centrist pro-EU parties fail to cooperate.

Despite being only four months old, Farage's Brexit Party emerged as one of the largest parties in the European Parliament (it's tied for first with Angela Merkel's center-right CDU/CSU, both with 29 seats). Merkel's CDU/CSU and SPU saw their support plunge below 29% and 16% respectively in their worst result in a national election.

Matteo Salvini's League Party came in second with 28 seats. Poland's Nationalist Law and Justice Party came in third with 23, while Marine Le Pen's National Rally Party won 22 seats, ahead of the 21 seats won by French President Emmanuel Macron's La Republique En Marche. Viktor Orban's Fidesz won 52% of the vote in Hungary, taking 13 of Hungary's 21 seats.

Though Sweden's Social Democrats remained the largest party in Europe, Sweden's anti-immigration Sweden Democrats won 15.4% of the vote, up from roughly 4% in the 2014 EU Parliamentary vote, growing their share of seats from two to three.

In Greece, Alexis Tsipras's Syriza was defeated by the center-right New Democracy Party, prompting Tsipras to call an early general election where New Democracy are expected to triumph. If that happens, it would end Syriza's four-year stint ruling Greece.

Trade Wars: South-East Asia Vows To Return Mountains Of Trash Back To The West Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:17:39 Id: 1b695a [Preview] No. 14790 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The worlds waste has been piling up on the shores of south-east Asia for more than a year…. but not for much longer.

Containers full of unwanted rubbish from the west have accumulated in the ports of the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam and huge toxic wastelands of plastics imported from Europe and the US have built up across Malaysia.

But nations across south east Asia have had enough of being ‘treated like trash’ and have vowed to send the garbage back to where it came from.

The Guardian reports:

Last week the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, threatened to sever diplomatic ties with Canada if the government did not agree to take back 69 containers containing 1,500 tonnes of waste that had been exported to the Philippines in 2013 and 2014.

Canada had refused to even acknowledge the issue for years but as the dispute escalated, Duterte declared that if the government did not act quickly, the Philippines would tow the rubbish to Canadian waters and dump it there.

On 23 April a Malaysian government investigation revealed that waste from the UK, Australia, United States and Germany was pouring into the country illegally, falsely declared as other imports.

Enough was enough, said Yeo Bee Bin, the environment minister. “Malaysia will not be the dumping ground of the world. We will send back [the waste] to the original countries.”

Chinese Military Ditches Microsoft Windows Over Spying Concerns, To Develop Own OS Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:16:14 Id: 711ffb [Preview] No. 14789 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Weeks after it was announced that Huawei will develop its own alternative to Android OS after being banned by Google from using it, ZDnet reports that the Chinese military will drop an alternative to Microsoft Windows.

While the decision hasn't been made official, it was reported earlier this month by Canadian military magazine Kanwa Asian Defense, which noted that Beijing won't just jump over to Linux - and will instead develop their own over fears of US surveillance (and of course, in retaliation for Huawei's blacklisting).

Thanks to the Snowden, Shadow Brokers, and Vault7 leaks, Beijing officials are well aware of the US' hefty arsenal of hacking tools, available for anything from smart TVs to Linux servers, and from routers to common desktop operating systems, such as Windows and Mac.

Since these leaks have revealed that the US can hack into almost anything, the Chinese government's plan is to adopt a "security by obscurity" approach and run a custom operating system that will make it harder for foreign threat actors -- mainly the US -- to spy on Chinese military operations. -ZDnet

The new OS will be developed by a newly established "Internet Security Information Leadership Group" as reported by the Epoch Times, citing Kanwa.

The group does not trust the “UNIX” multi-user, multi-stroke operating system either, which is used in some of the servers within the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Kanwa reported. Therefore, Chinese authorities ordered to develop an operating system dedicated to the Chinese military.

The group also believes that the German-developed programmable logic controller (PLC), used in 70 percent of China’s industrial control system today, poses huge risks to China’s national security. In its opinion, China is not a “network superpower,” but merely a “network giant,” Kanwa reported. Therefore, Chinese authorities have laid out plans to upgrade China’s network—to become more advanced in cyber technology. -Epoch Times

Huawei, meanwhile, is dropping Android OS for its own operating system, code-named HongMeng. It should be ready to launch in late 2019 domestically, and sometime in 2020 for international markets, according to TechRadar.

"Huawei knew this was coming and was preparing. The OS was ready in January 2018 and this was our 'Plan B'. We did not want to bring the OS to the market as we had a strong relationship with Google and others and did not want to ruin the relationship. Now, we are rolling it out next month," said Huawei's Managing Director and VP of the Middle East Enterprise Business Group.

China and Russia To Boycott US-Israel Circle Jerk Conference Reader 05/31/2019 (Fri) 16:07:28 Id: a39a45 [Preview] No. 14787 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China and Russia appear to be flexing their muscles in the Middle East, as both announced early this week they would boycott a major economic summit on Israel-Palestine peace sponsored by the United States set for late June in the Bahrain capital of Manama. The White House has touted that the US will unveil economic aspects of its long-awaited Middle East peace plan which aims to achieve economic prosperity for Palestinians, or Trump's so-called "Deal of the Century".

Crucially, the Chinese statement emphasized a bilateral Russian-Chinese agreement to boycott the talks. Chinese Ambassador to Palestine Guo Wei on Monday visited the West Bank city of Ramallah, where in a meeting he said, "Boycotting the Bahrain conference comes within the framework of a bilateral Russian-Chinese agreement not to participate in it."

During the statements Wei emphasized Beijing's position "in support of the Palestinian cause and people, including their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state of Palestine within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital".

At the same time Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas commented Monday, lashing out specifically at the White House-backed Bahrain conference for the first time. Abbas said:

Trump’s ‘deal of the century’ will go to hell, as will the economic workshop in Bahrain that the Americans intend to hold and present illusions.

It's not only a big victory for the Palestinian side, given it's rallied countries not to show up, but comes amidst the continuing proxy war in Syria where Russia is ramping up airstrikes in support of Damascus over Idlib, as well as the ongoing US-China trade war. However, as Axios notes the decision "is mainly driven by Russian and Chinese tensions with the U.S. rather than by Palestinian interests."

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which is the largely secular backbone of the Palestinian National Authority headquartered in the West Bank, has said it wasn't even notified of the Bahrain conference before it was announced.

And interestingly, it's none other that President Trump's own son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner who will chair the summit. Al Jazeera reports:

Early last week, the US announced plans to hold a landmark conference in Manama, where Trump administration officials are expected to unveil economic aspects of the "Deal of the Century", a US backchannel Palestine-Israel peace plan, the terms of which have yet to be made public.
