On one side of the MSM propaganda machine, the top story is about things Clinton said in response to another story, and reactions around it, and the other side’s top story is about Steve Wynn and more unconfirmed accusations … and the reactions around it…
All while Indiana passes a bill clearing the way for commercial hemp production, openly defying the archaic and subversive federal laws. The US air force begins a massive war drill in Las Vegas causing GPS blackouts with little regard to the major issues that could and will cause. The US continues to hint at a preemptive tactical nuclear strike on North Korea that will likely never happen, and that seems aimed at inciting a response in order to disrupt the peace being made, and the FBI releases “information” on the suspicious death of RT founder Mikhail Lesin claiming the man apparently beat himself to death.
But yeah, let’s talk more about opinions and conjecture instead…
Currently federal law authorizes farming of hemp, by research institutions, or within state pilot programs, for research purposes only — as if they don’t already know all there is to know about what hemp can do for the world, or rather what it stands to replace, which is why it was intentionally misrepresented and confused with marijuana, and made illegal. Farming for commercial purposes by individuals and businesses remains prohibited, despite the widely known history of hemp — from rope and sails to medicine and construction — and the fact that it was actually mandatory for farmers to grow it in our very recent past.
During World War II, the United States military relied heavily on hemp products, which resulted in the famous campaign and government-produced film, Hemp for Victory! According to a 2005 Congressional Research Service report, the U.S. is the only developed nation that hasn’t developed an industrial hemp crop for economic purposes. That should tell us something.
It is now prohibited for very specific and self-serving reasons, and this is not marijuana were talking about here. Those keeping hemp illegal for these selfish and malicious reasons, are well aware of this, yet it is still lumped in with marijuana, which should also be decriminalized. I don’t say this lightly, and many scoff at this statement, mostly because they have been conditioned to, but…
The United States Air Force is launching its largest-ever three-week premier set of air war drills, called Red Flag 18-1, which began yesterday and will conclude on February 16th. The air war drill is the largest of its kind in the 42-year history, as the United States prepares for a possible conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
This is despite, or rather in spite of, the current peace talks and North Korea repeatedly offering to denuclearize and deescalate tensions if only the US would cease these type of drills in their territory. The US refuses to even acknowledge the offers, and maintains that North Korea is the provocateur, a very classic case of,
“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.”
Further, the US Air Force drills at the Nevada Test and Training Range will cause rolling GPS blackouts for the vast portions of the Western United States from January 26 through February 18. All GPS-equipped aircraft operating in the Western United States should be prepared for possible navigation failure in the region — not to mention the average individual traveling, driving, hunting or any number of real-world issues this could cause.
This exercise will last a lengthy three weeks and could pose significant risks and threats to devices that rely on GPS signals, which according to a DHS chart, is pretty much anything with electronics.
But this is ok, because… War. Right? That is what this is essentially saying, that you guys and your small affairs don’t matter, because we must be prepared for a war that is not happening, and that we are perpetuating. Seems legit.
I truly do not think the US would, or could take a preemptive strike on any country right now, let alone North Korea, with the current geopolitical state of the US, and its increasingly intrusive foreign policy.
Now to be clear I’m not saying that the US government wouldn’t or couldn’t in general, as our own history says otherwise, only that currently both Americans and the world would likely not be ok with it. But that being said, if the US actually does take such a step, it would be an unparalleled and gross violation of both US and international law. Not that such a thing has stopped it in the past — take Syria for example — but this is a whole new level. And one that would change the game entirely, for everyone.
As Bill Van Auken wrote in his article:
Under the cover of the pre-Winter Olympics thaw between North and South Korea and the momentary lull in the “fire and fury” rhetoric from the Trump White House, there are growing signs that the Pentagon and the CIA are pressing ahead with preparations for a preemptive war against North Korea, including the use of nuclear weapons.
There have been multiple reports in the American corporate media of behind-the-scenes discussions between the US military and intelligence apparatus and the Trump administration of the feasibility of a so-called “bloody nose” attack, involving US air strikes on North Korean nuclear facilities, with the expectation—however ill-founded—that they would not provoke a full-scale war.
Yet, over all, I feel this is a ploy designed to provoke North Korea into some sort of response, as is commonly the case, and disrupt the peace being made that currently excludes the US from the table. And regardless of whether the US was the cause of the action, it would allow the justification, at least as far as they are concerned, to carry on its hostile actions while naming North Korea the danger.
This should reveal just how flimsy and hollow the US claims of maintaining peace truly are, as they are willing to stop all progress being made, simply to maintain control of the situation.
In November 2015, Mikhail Lesin, the founder of Russia Today (RT), was found dead in his hotel room in Washington DC. Originally, authorities claimed that Lesin died from a “heart attack.” However, FBI investigators have only now released the results of their investigation claiming that “blunt force trauma” was the cause of death, and that it was “self-inflicted.” The FBI has continually denied Russian investigators access, and refused to allow outside analysis.
The report states:
“Mr. Lesin died as a result of blunt for injuries to his head, with contributing causes being blunt force injuries of the neck, torso, upper extremities, and lower extremities, which were induced by falls, with acute ethanol intoxication.”
So he apparently beat himself to death, or fell repeatedly — in his own hotel room mind you — enough times to cause his death, according to the FBI. This while all other information in regards to the findings of Lesin’s death has been scrubbed from the documents. The pages given are almost entirely redacted, other than the point: Self-inflicted.
Not only is it important to ask why all the secrecy and redaction, but ask why, and how it was deemed a “heart attack” with all the very clear physical and visual evidence of blunt force trauma, and why it took such a long time to release the wildly manipulated associated information. I think the answer is self-evident, and should cast a long shadow over what is currently happening in regard to the FBI.
Please take the information discussed in the video above and research for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. As anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
