Brexit Derangement Hysteria Reaches New Levels

The strongly anti-Brexit, hyper-centralized mainstream media has come back with a new wave of fear mongering while toting the “possibility of a second referendum”, as a “dreaded no-deal scenario” comes closer. It seems likely that the no-deal Brexit scenario won’t happen — Theresa May, under pressure by the Masonic deep state, will likely keep us tied to European treaties, unless her cabinet keeps up the pressure. Several key pro-Brexit ministerial resignations suggests that May has veered towards upending the Brexit process.

The truth is, the UK in the EU is part of a socialist political, social, and economic redistribution and restructuring process that spreads resources across Europe, bolstering a single “European” entity under a bureaucratic and unelected government in Brussels. It’s goal is anti national representation and pro-bloc representation. No single nation is allowed to become too powerful, bureaucratic red tape is laden across anything and everything to disadvantage stronger nations and bolster the weaker, all the while Brussels holds all the influence.

The EU was and is solely an avenue designed to abolish nationhood and form a superstate; big chunks of the British economy are taken to bail out other failing nation states, fund them, and prop them up.

“No erosion of essential national sovereignty”, that was the promise to the UK upon entering the EEC in 1973. This promise has been broken.

The whole arrangement is protectionist while it backdoor floods European nations with rootless third world migrants who will vote to further consolidate European power and erode national identities — the goal being to plummet labor costs and create the next China or India, making Europe an economic powerhouse at the expense of the living standards of the average person.

The media is revving up the propaganda machine and pre-programming the general public into passively accepting a “half-in, half-out” deal which will keep the UK essentially tied to the EU, they do this by putting out material that is extremely negative about the situation to get people’s minds more accustomed to a soft Brexit.

After the new Brexit minister Dominic Raab (now unsurprisingly sidelined by May) claimed that the UK would “thrive” in a no-deal scenario; the media has moved in to redress the narrative — with the aforementioned hysterics.

Jacob Rees-Mogg called the renewed anti-Brexit push “Project Fear on speed”, adding: “It is a fallacy that countries will unilaterally decide to stop selling you their goods.” (The EU doesn’t have federal assent, yet, to impose something like that).

“The idea that food will not get through at Dover is entirely wrong” said Rees-Mogg,

“We would be free to import food, medicines, fuel as we wished and the EU could only stop this if it were to impose sanctions, which is not a credible thought.”

Newly elected populist leader, Matteo Salvini stated that “My experience in the European parliament tells me you either impose yourself or they swindle you,” alluding to Theresa May’s forgoing approach to negotiations.

Salvini, who recently advocated a “League of Leagues” to unite EU govts aiming to ‘defend their borders’, stated that he “will tour capital cities, and not just European ones, to create an alternative to this Europe founded on exploitation… [and] mass immigration.”

Back to Brexit.

So, what has the media concocted this time? Well…

The hysteria is obvious — what is equally clear is that the UK’s assets, economic power, and global influence is tangible, undeniable, and speaks for itself in, or out, of the EU — empty rhetoric, on the other hand, has led many to forget this reality.

If you’re in any doubt about the UK’s situation post-Brexit as the UK moves from EU vassalage arrangements to proper international agreements, read this article for an alternative, more sober take.

U.S. On Iran Nukes Allegations: Another Fabrication

Recently in a presentation, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly revealed the “secret atomic archive” of the Globalist opponent and the Chinese and Russian affiliated state of Iran, a nuclear weapons programme which was allegedly ended in 2003, Netanyahu claims to cite 55,000 pages of documents and another 55,000 files on 183 CDs, outlining four ways the Iranian government was lying. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the documents proved “beyond any doubt” that Iran had not told the truth.

In response to the allegations, Tehran accuses Netanyahu of lying — with an Iranian spokesman describing Mr Netanyahu as an “infamous liar who has had nothing to offer except lies and deceits”.

To bolster Iran’s counter-claim, The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says it has “no credible” evidence Iran was working on developing a nuclear “explosive device” after 2009.

Furthermore, Iran’s President, Hassan Rouhani, has described state possession of nuclear weapons as contradictory to Iran’s “fundamental religious and ethical convictions”.

Craig Murray, a British Journalist, was censored by Facebook for criticizing Israel’s hypocrisy.

Hostility between Israel and Iran, already diametric enemies, has grown as Iran builds up its military in Syria, on Israel’s doorstep in defense of Syria’s territorial sovereignty in the wake of Israeli occupation of the Golan heights and wider U.S. occupation of Syria, occupying nearly one third of Syria’s sovereign territory.

Now, the 2015 JCPOA between Iran, the US, China, Russia, Germany, France and Britain, a deal that agreed on limiting Iranian nuclear activity in return for the lifting of crippling international economic sanctions looks as if it may be coming to an end as Trump warns the US will abandon the deal on 12 May if his concerns are not addressed.

It’s too soon to say whether this will constitute an excuse to invade Iran and spark a hot conflict — but it will likely mean resumed economic sanctions on Iran for not playing ball with U.S. & Israeli foreign policy.

The U.S. loves to posit fake disarmament deals that it always breaks, gaining an independent nation’s trust then betraying said trust, sponsoring instability in said nation, advocating regime change in said nation, and, if all else fails — a false-flag backed ground invasion. The U.S. has already tried to sponsor a false uprising in Iran.

If we just look to how Iraq under Saddam Hussein received arms and support from Washington to attack and invade Iran. This de facto agreement, encouraged the Iraqi leader to assume that collaboration between nationalist Iraq and imperial Washington reflected a shared common agenda. Subsequently Baghdad believed that they had tacit US support in a territorial dispute with Kuwait. When Saddam invaded, the US bombed, devastated, invaded, occupied and partitioned Iraq.

The attempt by Iraq to collaborate with Washington in the 1980’s against its nationalist neighbor Iran, led to the invasion, the destruction of the country, the killing of thousands of secular leaders including Saddam Hussein as well as the entire secular and scientific intelligentsia, and the transformation of Iraq into a toothless vassal state of the empire.

Other examples of Washington’s duplicity in its “deal making”.

With the elections of Donald Trump, the US rejected the agreement (‘it’s the worst deal ever’) and in compliance with the Israeli Prime Minister B. Netanyahu’s military agenda, demanded the total restoration of sanctions, the dismantling of Iran’s entire military defenses and its submission to the US, Israeli and Saudi Arabian dictates in the Middle East.

In other words, President Trump discarded the agreement in opposition to all the major countries in Europe and Asia, in favor of Israel’s demands to isolate, disarm and attack Iran and impose a puppet regime in Tehran.

“The strategic goal is disarmament in order to facilitate military and political intervention leading up to and beyond defeat, occupation, regime change; the impositions of a‘client regime’ to facilitate the pillage of economic resources and the securing of military bases, international alignment with the US empire and a military springboard for further conquests against neighbors and independent adversaries.” — Prof. James Petras

These recent allegations from Israel backed by the U.S., in light of recent Iranian military posturing following the April 7th Syria strikes seems more suited to a “back off” gesture from the Western alliance, in essence, saying “we can and will hold your feet to the fire” (by reimposing crippling sanctions) over these allegations. If they have any further, graver, implications in targeting Iran — these will unfold with time.

Was Tillerson Sacked to Abandon the Iran Nuclear Deal?

Tillerson supported Washington remaining on board with the JCPOA nuclear deal – along with other P5+1 countries Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.

Trump wants it unacceptably changed or abandoned. On Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted:

“Mr Trump has made habit of being unpredictable and thus unreliable for anybody to engage with. Nobody will be interested in reaching any agreement with the White House if US signature only good for 4-8 yrs.”

Replacing Tillerson with militantly anti-Iran hardliner Pompeo smooths things for Trump to pursue greater hostility toward the Islamic Republic with a key administration official on board with his reckless agenda.

Like the president, secretary of state designee Pompeo opposes the nuclear deal. Tillerson’s sacking likely signals Trump’s intention to abandon the JCPOA ahead.

According to Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi,

“Americans are determined to leave the JCPOA, and changes at the country’s State Department were made in line with this goal, or at least it was one of the reasons,” adding:

“Europeans are walking on the razor’s edge because if they incline towards Trump, they will lose Iran.”

Days earlier, IAEA head Yukiya Amano said

“I can state that Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments…If the JCPOA were to fail, it would be a great loss for nuclear verification and for multilateralism.”

Things are heading in this direction, especially with Pompeo succeeding Tillerson at State.

Things pursued by Washington should terrify everyone. Trump escalated rogue policies his predecessors began – notably waging political, economic and hot wars against multiple countries.

Will Iran be his next target for regime change, beginning by abandoning the JCPOA nuclear deal? What took years of negotiations to conclude, he could scrap with a signature taking moments.

Replacing Tillerson with Pompeo signals likely escalated wars of aggression, stepped up hostility toward Russia and China, perhaps scuttling a Trump/Kim Jong-un summit or structuring it to fail, along with abandoning the Iran nuclear deal and targeting the country for regime change.

Trump won’t re-certify the JCPOA in May unless Britain, France and Germany agree to major changes Iran won’t accept.

According to an unnamed White House official,

“(i)f the Europeans make it clear that what we are asking for is going too far, then we’ll know, but as soon as they say that, Europe is signing the deal’s death warrant,” adding:

“Tillerson wasn’t faithful to the intent of the president. (He) didn’t agree with breaking the Iran deal.”

“Every time the president’s been persuaded to sign these waivers he’s done so begrudgingly. (I)n January he said, ‘this is absolutely the last time.’ Either we fix it or he won’t sign another waiver. ‘I’m not going to sign it unless Iran agrees.’ ”

Changes he demands Tehran finds unacceptable, including:

  • unlimited inspections of Iranian sites, including military ones no countries would tolerate;
  • the international community on board, ensuring Iran never develops nuclear weapons it abhors, doesn’t want, and calls for eliminating;
  • removing the JCPOA’s sunset clause, effective after 10 years;
  • restricting Iranian development and testing of ballistic missiles not part of the JCPOA; and
  • reimposing nuclear-related sanctions if Tehran fails to fully comply with the above demands.

Clearly they’re unacceptable. Six countries and Iran spent years negotiating the JCPOA.

Tehran won’t tolerate Trump unilaterally demanding changes during the life of the agreement.

As things now stand, Washington will likely walk away, destroying the deal by illegally reimposing nuclear related sanctions.

Along with other US Middle East policies, abandoning the JCPOA risks greater regional turbulence and instability instead of responsibly stepping back from the brink.

Lunatics infesting Washington threaten everyone. Paul Craig Roberts asked “Will Humanity Survive Crazed Washington?”

We’re all threatened with possible extinction by Washington’s megalomaniacal rage for unchallenged hegemony.

I agree with Roberts, saying “you can expect the worst” ahead.
