Europe at War: 'Calais Jungle' protests cause huge disruption in France ~ link ~ link ~
A blockade of lorries in conjunction with a human chain on the roads around the French port of Calais has caused severe disruption. The protesters, among them Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart, are demanding the closure of the "Jungle" migrant camp, saying it undermines the town. More than 7,000 people now live there, in squalid conditions. Many of them try to jump on lorries to reach Britain.

The Ultimate 21'st Century Choice" War or OBOR ~ link ~
So at the heart of the G20 we will have the two projects which are competing head on to geopolitically shape the young 21st century. China has proposed OBOR; a pan-Eurasian connectivity spectacular designed to configure a hypermarket at least 10 times the size of the US market within the next two decades. The US hyperpower – not the Atlanticist West, because Europe is mired in fear and stagnation — “proposes” the current neocon/neoliberalcon status quo; the usual Divide and Rule tactics; and the primacy of fear, enshrined in the Pentagon array of “threats” that must be fought, from Russia and China to Iran. The geopolitical rumble in the background high-tech jungle is all about the “containment” of top G20 members Russia and China.
The German Luftwaffe has begun NATO patrols over the Baltic states ~ link ~
On September 1, the Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces) assumed air surveillance operations for NATO over the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
According to an official Luftwaffe (Air Force) report, four to six Euro Fighters from the 74th Tactical Air Force Squadron based at Neuburg have been deployed to conduct “enhanced Baltic Air Policing”. The German aircraft replaced British Royal Air Force Euro Fighter Typhoons based at the Estonian Air Force Base in Ämari. In Siauilia in Lithuania, four French Air Force Mirage fighter jets have replaced a Portuguese contingent.

Huma for Acting President in 2017?!! ~ link ~
Has anybody noticed that Huma Abedin, lifelong Muslim Brotherhood symp, is now the acting Democratic candidate for President?
I’ll bet the DNC knows it. Hillary’s condition could be fatal if she has as stroke, or takes a little too much Coumadin, one of her prescribed medications. The public has been told almost nothing about the specifics of her condition. But medical people have looked at the evidence and at her photos, which look dangerous. The media know the truth, which is why they are hotly trying to deny it. All of them, in unison. Donald Trump is dropping hints, which is what he does a lot of the time.

Dr. Drew: Asked to retract Hillary health comments just before being canceled ~ link ~

China's military strategic reforms ~ link ~
The newly established Rocket Force and Strategic Support Force (SSF), two new services of the PLA, were some of the major changes to the military’s structure. The transformation of the Second Artillery Corps (SAC) into the Rocket Force was not a surprise, as the SAC had already been an independent military branch under the direct control of the CMC. With the mission to “deter against hostile forces in all territories with both conventional and nuclear warheads,” the PLA Rocket Force, like its predecessor, the SAC, is responsible for the stockpile of surface-to-surface strategic and tactical ballistic missiles, which are China’s “lethal weapons” in its nuclear deterrence strategy.
For long-term observers of the PLA’s development, that the SAC was restructured as the Rocket Force was not surprising. The establishment of the SSF, however, was a different story; to many specialists, the SSF represented a major break in tradition. In addition, after China announced its establishment, media reports on the SSF have been scarce. The new service is veiled in mystery.
Silent Coup to overtake USA ~ link ~
Nichols goes on to say, “We are at the beginning of a velvet or silent coup. It’s been going on for years. There’s been a slow subtle takeover of our form of government, starting years and years ago, but it is coming to an end. That’s why there is this power play now. It’s more aggressive than you have seen before. If we don’t stop Hillary, it’s over. Is Trump the answer to all of our problems? I don’t know. Here’s what I do know about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not in the system. How do I know that? As hard as they are working to keep him out is a pretty good recommendation for me. He’s not one of them. He might be a good president. When you mention Hillary or the establishment, there is no ‘might.’ With them, we would get what we have been getting but only worse. There is not a ‘might’ there.”
