US Pentagon wants network of new US military bases in Iraq ~ link ~ What a great business model the US Military-Industrial Complex has: Have the US and others (Israel and Arab puppets) create a new false enemy and then use this to create new demand for arms! Stirling
The Pentagon is preparing to develop a network of new US military bases in strategic areas of Iraq, General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters Thursday.
The new US garrisons will house further deployments of hundreds more US troops, beyond the deployment of an additional 450 US forces announced by the Obama administration on Wednesday.
Iran nuclear talks at "standstill" - Deadline might be extended ~ link ~
Representatives from Iran and the six world powers (P5+1 group) have a low chance of reaching an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program by the June 30 deadline, according to a diplomatic source. The talks in Vienna are at "standstill," the source added.
"Progress has practically come to a standstill and there is a risk that the deadline will be extended again," a diplomatic source told the TASS news agency on Friday, after discussions ended for the day.
12 Reasons WHY America Doesn't Win Its Wars ~ link ~ Good One. Stirling
America doesn’t “win” its wars, because winning a war is secondary to other goals in our war making. Winning or losing has little immediate consequence for the United States, because the wars we start, Wars of Choice, are not of vital national interest; losing doesn’t mean getting invaded or our cities being destroyed. The following are some of the interests Washington has in not winning, reasons for our unending wars.
Zionist 'Things' Continue To Fall Apart ~ link ~
Things are getting so bad for the Zionist regime in Europe that they have chosen Tony Blair—yes, Tony Blair!—as one of their representatives to fight “anti-Semitism.” Blair is also working hard to make “Holocaust denial a criminal offense.” Sheldon Adelson, for his turn, is planning to “host secret anti-BDS summit for Jewish donors.”
The moral of the story here is that much of the world cannot stand Zionism any longer precisely because Zionism does not abide by the moral and political law and order. Zionists set one standard for others and a completely different one for themselves.

7 Key Events by End of September ~ link ~
Is something really big about to happen? For months, people have been pointing to the second half of this year for various reasons. For some, the major concern is Jade Helm and the unprecedented movement of military vehicles and equipment that we have been witnessing all over the nation. For others, the upcoming fourth blood moon and the end of the Shemitah cycle are extremely significant events. Yet others are most concerned about political developments in Washington D.C. and at the United Nations. To me, it does seem rather remarkable that we are seeing such a confluence of economic, political and spiritual events coming together during the second half of 2015. So is all of this leading up to something? Is our world about to change in a fundamental way? Only time will tell. The following are 7 key events that are going to happen by the end of September…
Turkey: Strategic Defeat of Erdogan ~ link ~
So at long last, despite all the meanders and sideways and detours of history, the logic of social struggles has finally put its stamp on the politics of Turkey. The resounding defeat of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP at the polls in the 7th June general elections in Turkey brings out into the open a loss of political clout on the part of Erdogan as a result of the successive blows he received in the last two years at the hands of the masses and, partly, his erstwhile partners.
Two years ago almost to the day, the masses descended on the streets all over Turkey to demand the resignation of the Erdogan government, who was then prime minister, protesting not only the project of the demolition of the Gezi Park in the very centre of Istanbul with the purpose of building a shopping mall, but even more importantly against the wholesale suppression of freedoms and sectarian war-mongering in Syria. [See Bullet No. 831, Bullet No. 834, Bullet No. 837.] The popular rebellion that ensued lasted from June to September, was ferociously suppressed by the police at the explicit urging of the prime minister himself, but left Erdogan scathed and breathless. As a result of the revolt and the brutal tactics he adopted to put it down, Erdogan came to be regarded by his former allies and partners as a liability rather than an asset in terms of guaranteeing economic and political stability for Turkish capitalism.
The IMF and ECB teams were part of the negotiation team in Brussels, along with Greece’s other main creditor, the European Union (EU).
TTP, TISA, TTIP: Stop Obama's Insane Legacy Trade Deals ~ link ~
President Obama has many times made clear to congressional Democrats that the most important thing in the “legacy” that he hopes to leave behind from his Presidency is his big-three ‘trade’ deals: TPP with Asia, TTIP with Europe, and TISA for international services including banking and insurance.
It is, indeed, the most ambitious international economic agenda that has ever been pushed by any U.S. President. (It’s not about “trade”; it’s about transferring democratic national sovereignty to dictatorial corporate international sovereignty.) And the leading Democrat in the U.S. Senate, Harry Reid, has called it “insane,” because Bill Clinton’s much smaller but otherwise similar NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) sent so many jobs abroad, and so hollowed-out the American economy, that it significantly caused the soaring economic inequality during the Bush-Obama years.
Unthinkable: Brazilian journalist sees Soviet Union-Style Collapse of America ~ link ~
Citing a series of geopolitical, economic and social setbacks faced by the United States since the turn of the century, geopolitical analyst and Sao Paulo Business School Professor Antonio Gelis-Filho argues that global policy planners must prepare to deal with the “improbable, but by all means possible, Soviet-style collapse of the United States.”
Their ranks have closed on the strategy of absolving themselves as totally responsible for the Ukraine disaster via what is turning out to be a cheap and pitiful attempt to blame it all on Russia.
Hospitals are Blatantly Stealing From Us ~ link ~
Most Americans are deathly afraid to go to the hospital these days – and it is because of the immense pain that it will cause to their wallets. If you want to get on a path that will lead you to bankruptcy, just start going to the hospital a lot. In America today, hospitals and doctors are blatantly ripping us off and they aren’t making any apologies for it. As you will read about below, some hospitals mark up treatments by 1,000 percent. In other instances, basic medical supplies are being billed out at hundreds of times what they cost providers. For example, it has been reported that some hospitals are charging up to 30 dollars for a single aspirin pill. It would be difficult to argue that the extreme greed that we see in the medical system is even matched by the crooks on Wall Street. These medical predators get their hands on us when we are at our most vulnerable. They know that in our lowest moments we are willing to pay just about anything to get better or to make the pain go away. And so they very quietly have us sign a bunch of forms without ever telling us how much everything is going to cost. Eventually when the bills come in the mail, it is too late to do anything about it.
