Russia Gets Caught Preparing for War With the US and Israel

There is a lot in this week’s report. Russia’s submarine accident and what that means for a United States war with Russia; Iran’s defiance and uranium enrichment; the messages being sent by President Donald Trump in his 4th of July ‘Salute to America’ celebration; Israel’s first time ever observance of America’s independence day; the new race the Israeli Sanhedrin is embarking on to compete with Russia, Iran and China’s North-South Corridor and some important economic news along with a warning about more migrants that are about to reach the US southern border.


Thank you for listening!

Let’s get started with the US, Iran war.


Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile has passed the 300-kilogram limit set by the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, according to the Fars news agency on Monday.

Not only has Iran confirmed surpassing its uranium enrichment limit, Tehran is now threatening to continue with its nuclear enrichment program, saying it will have enough enriched uranium to fuel a nuclear warhead within one week.

According to Business Insider, Trump’s policy has backed the United States into a corner with Iran. Meanwhile, Trump appears determined to maintain his administration’s maximum pressure strategy against Iran, and critics in both Congress and the wider foreign policy community [believe] he’s only making the situation worse.

Jon Wolfsthal, who served as the top nuclear expert on the National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, is blaming this crisis entirely on President Donald Trump. I will have more to say about the treason being committed by Barack Obama and his former administration officials, along with Congressional Democrats, in a few minutes.

However, Wolfsthal told INSIDER. “Iran might be able to produce a small amount of highly enriched uranium more quickly than one year, but not enough to produce a weapon. And, of course, we will be able to see everything Iran does because of the presence of inspectors in Iran, something that is happening because of the Iran nuclear deal“.

Obama officials and others who claim Iran’s nuclear enrichment was controlled by the JCPOA underestimate, or perhaps worse, are in collusion with, Tehran’s ambitions. I’ll have more on that in a few minutes, as well. Do they really believe Iran will continue to allow those inspectors? And if Iran does allow that, what is that saying? Perhaps Iran has been stockpiling uranium in an undisclosed location.


President Trump’s 4th of July plans are being politicized and discussed all over the media. You don’t need me to tell you what is going on except that, as CBS News reported on Tuesday President Trump’s 4th of July celebration will be “like no other“.

The question is to whom is Trump sending a message? To Americans? America’s enemies? Or both?

The Democrats and left-wing news media are crawling up one side of the President and down the other for what they are calling “excessive”. So, let’s take a look at that. Is Trump being excessive in his “Salute to America”?

Were the fireworks, the military flyovers at the Mall by Air Force One and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the chiefs standing next to Trump as their respective branches flew over, the appearance of tanks on flatbeds in Washington DC and all the rest too much? Some think so.

The president’s critics have chastised him for demanding the kind of costly military parades associated with authoritarian regimes and for placing himself center stage during a typically nonpartisan celebration, as they’re calling it. Mr. Trump so far has observed Independence Day as a salute to America’s military might.

Let me address this idea that the 4th of July has typically been a nonpartisan celebration. It is not true that the 4th of July has been mostly nonpartisan. I am not defending President Trump, but the liberal left lies about him “left and right”, pun intended.

If Trump takes the opportunity to play politics with the speech, … it’s worth keeping in mind that political parties have been using the 4th of July celebrations as platforms ever since our first parties, the Federalists and Democratic-Republicans, began holding separate Independence Day events in several locations back in the 1790s, according to

The President’s plans have been altered from his original intention, though. While the president hoped to see Army tanks rolling down the streets of Washington, the Pentagon had other ideas. …The tanks [were] on “static display” near the Lincoln Memorial, placed on flatbeds, instead of tearing up city streets with their treads.

In 2018, the Pentagon issued a memo recommending against the president’s plans to have military tanks driving down historic pathways in Washington as part of a planned Veterans Day parade. That plan was scrapped after reports put the cost of the military extravaganza at a whopping $92 million — over three times the maximum initial White House estimate. 

And now, critics arguing that with the use of tanks and air power, the military “salute” to America’s heroes may be evolving into a salute to President Trump.

In Trump’s defense, his critics are forgetting, or possibly ignoring, that he is not the first sitting President to throw such a parade. Parades of this magnitude were had in 1801, 1865, 1919, 1942, 1946, 1953, 1961 and 1991.

There is an almost forgotten factor beyond showing Iran, Russia and China America’s military might that I believe could be playing into Trump’s need to show off the US military. Let us not forget that Barack Obama, who I still regard as a domestic terrorist, has been meddling trying to destroy Trump since the 2016 election campaign. Obama has never stopped treasonously conspiring against Trump with the Iranians since leaving office, instructing their response to Trump’s withdrawal from the heinous JCPOA, the latest sanctions and the missile attack withdrawal a couple of weeks ago.

According to the, as the Trump administration sent warplanes and an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, a small group of former Obama administration officials reached out to their contacts in the Iranian government, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. Their message to Iran: Don’t take Trump’s bait. Stay calm.

Conversations between former Obama officials and Iranian government officials have been ongoing since November 2016. Zarif, who visits the U.S. every year for the U.N. General Assembly in New York, usually meets with lawmakers, think tanks, journalists, and former officials when he is in town.

But the recent round of conversations, which took place over the phone and in person over the last two months, came as lines of communication between the U.S. and Iran, through intermediaries in Europe and elsewhere, deteriorated.

Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill pressed for details about the [recent] threat, [turned to] former Obama officials for answers instead of working with President Trump!

Three Obama officials who worked closely on the Iran nuclear deal, one of whom is still in touch with Iranian government officials, traveled to Capitol Hill to brief congressional Democrats about the situation.

That means the Democrats were listening to Iran’s side of the conflict which is averse to the US side! Every Democrat involved should be tried for treason under the Logan act!

Those former officials would not say if they passed information from Iranian government officials to [other] members of Congress.

These conversations …run counter to the Trump administration’s messaging to the Iranian government.

“It’s not just about what they were saying to the Iranians,” the aide said. “It’s about what they were saying to their political allies back here in the U.S. Their strategy was to divide and isolate the Trump administration just as the Trump administration was trying to re-establish deterrence with Iran. In the current highly partisan political environment, the only safe course is to signal national unity—and they contributed to eroding that at home and abroad.”

Conversations of this nature sometimes generate fervid conversations about [the Logan Act passed in 1799]. …The Logan Act bars people outside the U.S. government from engaging in unauthorized diplomatic talks on its behalf. When Gen. Michael Flynn spoke with Russian officials between Election Day 2016 and Inauguration Day to urge them not to retaliate against new U.S. sanctions, some suggested he could be charged with breaking that law (he wasn’t). The likelihood that former Obama officials could face such a charge is basically zero percent; the likelihood that some of their critics may bring it up, on the other hand, is reasonably high.

US Congressional Democrats would be wise to break ties with Obama and his former officials so that the Republicans can step in to sue the entire Obama administration for treason!

Trump’s 4th of July military muscle flexing is a great show of might and prowess, the kind of massive show of force worthy of Moscow or Tehran of late and perhaps something they need to see. But one must ask THE question at this point. What does all this military display say about Trump as the peaceful man he portrays himself to be? A parade with this much muscle-flexing either does not show a President who does not want war, or it shows a massive ego out of control.

Is it any wonder that Trump’s ego is responding to Democrats, Obama’s and the Iranians’ attacks on his character and policies, and the heaped-up praise of the Israelis, by escalating his already excessive tendencies? Such bravado and boisterousness is typical of a personality that thrives on excesses. There is a danger. Some say Trump is pushing Iran too far. Well, Trump is being pushed so far that he is being pushed into a future fraught with war danger because of his excess-loving ego. To preserve his own ego, Trump might, at some point, go ahead and engage Iran in what will be, for America, an un-winnable war on behalf of Israel and to spite the liberal Democrats and the Obama administration. He would be doing so to prove to the Obama crowd that he CAN do such a thing and to the Israelis that he is worthy of their praise. Such an ego in the White House could turn out to be a very dangerous problem.


Russia may have been caught spying off the coast of Alaska. US Vice President Mike Pence and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s simultaneous and sudden changes of plans could be a clue that something huge just took place off the coast of Alaska.

Mike Pence made a hasty return from New Hampshire causing much speculation in the press. The reason is probably because of a secret Russian submarine that caught fire off the coast of Alaska killing 14 sailors, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The Russians claim the submarine was conducting research in international waters. They were very careful to say “international waters”, and they really would like you to believe they were in international waters with their highly secret attack nuclear-powered reconnaissance submarine  designed for sensitive missions at great ocean depths conducting some kind of nebulous under water research, measuring sea depths, and not for the purposes of scouting along the Alaskan coast.

It is interesting that the mainstream media around the world is calling this high-tech nuclear-missile-carrying-reconnaissance submarine a “submersible”. We don’t want scare John Q. Public, after all. Let’s keep them at the malls spending their money.

DEBKAfile’s military sources said a US submarine intercepted the Russian nuclear sub in American waters opposite Alaska. The Russian sub escorting the nuclear submarine responded with a Balkan 2000 torpedo and scuttled the US vessel. Urgent consultations in both the White House and the Kremlin were taking place on Tuesday night, and if this account is true, then Russia just opened the first volley in the next world war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also scrambled over the situation. After all, one cannot have one’s spy missions come to light within the country one is spying on and which one day one intends to obliterate.

Putin cancelled an engagement and headed for the Kremlin to confer with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and military chiefs, after learning that 14 submariners died in a fire that broke out on a nuclear-powered “experimental submarine in Russian waters.” This account carried in Russian media varies in most respects from the first reports reaching this site and may refer to a separate incident. They report between 14 and 17 members of an AS-12 nuclear powered submarine died of poisonous fumes caused by a fire aboard the vessel. The submarine was described as experimental and unarmed but often used in spy missions. It is unclear how many of the 25 crew survived. Local media suggest four or five are receiving treatment in Severomorsk’s military hospital for poisoning and concussion injuries. Another news account said the majority of the officers died in or on their way to hospital. These reports do not cite the cause of the fire.

Here is what The Commonsense Show had to say:

The Russian submarine accident occurred on board the Losharik, one of the Russian Navy’s secretive spy subs. The “accident” also involved a submersible craft that the Losharik had launched, or its larger Delfin-class mothership submarine, the BS-64 Podmoskovye.

According to The Drive, “the submarine in question was actually a BS-64, which reportedly serves as the mothership for Losharik. The small nuclear-powered submarine is supposed to ride closer to the mission area underneath the larger BS-64.” This is where this gets really interesting. The Drive went on to say the following:

…the Russians also describe their special mission submarines, ranging from the deep-diving, nuclear-powered, yet relatively small submarine Losharik to the new Belgorod, presently the world’s longest submarine, as “research” boats. That a mothership submarine carries Losharik ventrally during extended-range missions may be part of the confusion, as well. There is limited information about any of these submarines.

Losharik can reportedly dive to depths as deep as 3,300 feet and its primary mission is to investigate and manipulate objects of interest on the seabed. This could include recovery of sensitive objects for intelligence analysis or to prevent other countries from doing the same, the deployment of sensors or other equipment, or the tapping or cutting of seabed cables supporting military and civilian communications and other networks.

In short, this submarine is about retrieving objects from the bottom of the ocean floor or cutting off military and civilian communications. What object(s)? [The] …source said there are a few possibilities:

    Great mineral deposits (most likely given recent political and military events)

    Retrieving a reportedly lost supersonic torpedo

    A crashed UFO

How was the Russian submarine damaged? It could have been a firefight of some sort against an American sub attempting to retrieve the same object(s)[and] whatever was being “retrieved” fought back.

The possibility of this just being a tragic accident is highly unlikely given the reaction of both the US and Russia.

Russia also docked a warship in Cuba’s Havana port in June. The US had been watching the ship’s movements carefully, according to reports. The ship, which is armed with missiles, defense systems and other weaponry, entered the Caribbean Sea around June 18 along with a logistics ship, a sea tanker and a rescue tug.

President Trump’s Twitter account has been silent about this submarine issue. Mike Pence is still sequestered in the White House at the time of this writing, so whatever is going on is deadly serious!

Yes, there is something going on between Russia and the US which Russia does not want to have happen prematurely. Russia has been building up military bases all over the Arctic. The Russian military says it has built 475 military sites in the past six years, spanning from the country’s western frontier with NATO borders to the Bering Strait in the east. The Kotelny base is closer to Alaska than to Moscow.

This northern buildup is for no other purpose than destroying the United States, the end times headquarters for global Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:4 “In those days and in that time, declares the LORD, the people of Israel and the people of Judah shall come together, weeping as they come, and they shall seek the LORD their God.

Jeremiah 50:5 They shall ask the way to Zion, with faces turned toward it, saying, ‘Come, let us join ourselves to the LORD in an everlasting covenant that will never be forgotten.’

This will only be completely fulfilled during the end of days. Russia’s missiles will fulfill Jeremiah’s vision of “arrows” falling on Babylon (Jeremiah 50:9, 50:14, 51:11).

Donald Trump, and his predecessor Obama, have both been blinded by YHVH about the importance of the Arctic and Russia’s buildup there. The buildup began under the Obama administration and continues to this day. Donald Trump’s administration has only seen the Arctic through the lens of security and economic competition with Russia and China but has ignored the military threat.

Later in this broadcast, I will tell you how Russia is attempting to turn the economic tables meant for Iran back on the United states.

But first… China has reportedly also carried out at least one anti-ship ballistic missile test in the hotly contested South China Sea as part of a larger exercise. If true, it would be the first time the Chinese military has carried out this kind of activity in this region that we know of and it would represent a significant escalation in that country’s already aggressive efforts to assert its claims over this highly strategic portion of the Pacific Ocean.

Donald Trump’s muscle-flexing 4th of July celebration may be appropriate, after all. It could also be a taunt to America’s enemies, Russia, Iran and China.


For the first time in history, the “sisters”, the House of Israel and the House of Judah, together celebrated America’s independence from the British. Americans have celebrated Israel’s independence for years. Now, Israel is returning the favor for the first time in history with its own American Independence Day celebration, and it’s all about the two nations having one mutual enemy – Iran.

A bipartisan delegation of 10 congressmen and two senators was among the hundreds of people at the Jerusalem International Convention Center, and Netanyahu stressed the importance of maintaining bipartisan support.

In the first-ever 4th of July celebration speech that was not delivered on the 4th of July, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Iran’s decision on Monday to enrich uranium beyond levels allowed under the 2015 nuclear deal is an attempt to blackmail the world into making concessions and reducing sanctions”.

“But now is the time to do the exact opposite and increase the pressure”, Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu called on all European countries to do what they promised and snap back sanctions on Iran the minute it violates the deal.

A special coin was minted for the American 4th of July celebration: The “Cyrus-Trump” coin.  Israel365 said, “The special coin was produced to praise the Jerusalem Declaration of President Donald Trump as a continuation of King Cyrus’s Declaration. This historic declaration is part of the divine process towards the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem”.

I agree, but for a different reason. The rabbis are celebrating Judaism’s prophetic “Trump triumph”. Rebuilding the Temple is only the first step in Orthodox Judaism’s plan to rule the earth. Another step is the revealing of their mortal messiah which Apostles Peter, John and Paul called ‘the son of perdition’.

Remember, Orthodox Judaism has a very different belief about the future. In their ‘world to come’, they will rule over and be served by Gentiles. Yeshua’s coming Kingdom will also have those who rule with Him in every city on the earth, but not to rule over or to overpower. Instead, Yeshua’s Torah instructions will go forth from Zion, Temple Mount and Jerusalem, over all the earth for the sake of the salvation of Gentiles, not to make them slaves or to enslave other non-Jews such as those from the unrecognized non-Jewish House of Israel which includes people trapped in Christianity and Islam.


In a television interview, senior official Mojtaba Zonnour gives Israel “half an hour” of life if America hits Iran.

Speaking on Al-Alam TV, Mojtaba Zonnour, chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian parliament, said, “If America attacks us, Israel will survive for less than half an hour.”

The hardline cleric, who until 2019 also served as chairman of Iran’s Nuclear Subcommittee, spoke mainly about the U.S. threat to Iran amidst the rising tensions between the two adversaries.

Zonnour claimed that 36 American bases in the region are under Iran’s surveillance, all within reach of its missiles. This includes the “closest military base” in Bahrain, which serves the American Fifth Fleet, he said, as well as even the “most remote” one on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.

Today, we have intelligence hegemony,” he noted, according to a translation by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute. “We detect very quickly all the changes in the American bases in the region.”

If the Americans “think of attacking us,” the Iranian regime will sink the U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier that is currently patrolling the region, Zonnour said. “Its huge size only makes it easier for us to target…. We will sink [it] along with its 7,000 crew members,” he added with a smile.

This is where the President is making his mistake. He knows Iran will attack Israel and has planted a military base in Israel’s Negev desert to guard against that. Mistake #1. A lone US military base in Israel, along with all the fire power Israel has, will not be sufficient against an Iranian attack on Israel.

Mistake #2 is for any President to continue believing no one will attack the US mainland. Russia, indeed, will do so when Iran attacks Israel.


Still, both Israel and the US continue to provoke the two prophetic bears, Russia and Iran, In Syria. Israel just provoked again with another attack on Syria.

Israeli fighter jets hit military targets of the Syrian regime this week causing fires that reached ammunition depots. Israel also hit Iranian and Hezbollah targets and around the vicinity of Damascus and Homs. All in all, ten military targets were struck and at least 16 people were killed, nine of them being soldiers and most of them Iranians.

Pressure from the explosions caused damage to homes in Damascus and Sahanaya that wounded several civilians.

Syria has accused Israel of “heinous aggression” and Russia said the attacks “grossly violate Syria’s sovereignty”.

Syria’s foreign ministry filed a complaint to the United Nations security council over the attack, demanding Israel be held accountable and saying Israel’s “dangerous and hostile” actions would not have been possible without the support of its ally the United States, which protects it on the security council.

In response to the attacks, Damascus fired anti-aircraft missiles at suspected Israeli planes, but one stray rocket accidentally hit Northern Cyprus, sparking a fire on the mountainside above Nicosia.

The incident marked the first time Cyprus has been caught up in military operations in Syria’s eight-year-old civil war.


There is provocation to go around. Russia provoked Israel during last week’s security talks.

Israel security officials say Russia is behind the disruptions that plagued Israel’s civilian navigation systems for the past three weeks. Israel’s Army radio called it a “hostile attack.” The interference took place even as Russia’s National Security Adviser took part in a historic tripartite meeting in Jerusalem last week.

The Israel Airports Authority said it was forced to make changes to “entry procedures” to ensure safe landings.

“At no stage was there a safety incident related to GPS interference in connection with the accuracy of navigation and flight routes,” the Airports Authority said in a statement issued on Wednesday.

According to Reuters, the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations said on Tuesday that “many” pilots lost GPS satellite signals near Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv. The association warned of “potential risk” and advised flight crews over Israel to “avoid distractions and plan for alternative procedures as necessary.”

  1. Put it together! Russia is working to cut off communications and flight safety in Israel. Russia sent a submarine designed to cut off military and civilian communications off the coast of Alaska that would cripple the United States.

My friends, the only reason that Russian submarine was destroyed was because YHVH is saving both the United States and Israel from Russia and Iran’s coming destruction right now. Oh yes, it will come, but it will be in YHVH’s timing. Not when Moscow or Tehran decide! And it will be a two-pronged, simultaneous attack – Iran against Israel, Russia against the United States.

Russia denies that it had anything to do with the disruptions that Israel’s GPS systems experienced. And they’re also denying much about that submarine problem.

I will return after this message.

PEACE PLAN        

Palestinian Fatah members have threatened to ‘hunt down’ Bahrain conference participants.

A video posted online during the “Peace to Prosperity” conference in Bahrain last week features a statement by a group of armed and masked Fatah members from the town of Yamoun in the West Bank. The men warn against “interacting and cooperating with the leaders of the Zionist entity,” especially in its “economic enterprises.”

They go on to say that they will strike with “an iron fist the necks of anyone” who sells out the Palestinian rights and anyone who participates in the Bahrain workshop. Those who attend the workshop, they say, have “opened the gates of Hell on themselves.”

Fatah’s warning was geared toward the “treacherous scoundrels among the Arab rulers” who might cooperate with Israel.

In fact, the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) security services set out to arrest several businessmen who participated in the U.S.-sponsored Peace to Prosperity workshop in Manama, Bahrain.

Hebron businessman, Saleh Abu Milah, who is battling cancer, was arrested for daring to attend the Bahrain workshop and threatened another.

Abu Milah’s family [said] that his arrest could cause his death because of his illness. Some of the arresting officers turned out to be his relatives, senior Fatah members.

Another man, Ashraf Ranem, who also was a delegation member, seeing the security forces approaching his house, escaped and hid in the house next door.

PA forces could be heard in the background telling Ranem’s family that he is a spy and a traitor and could be sentenced to death. The security men told the father to turn in his son, otherwise, the son will be “killed by a mob in the street.”

Abu Milah said on Monday that he’s been forced to flee his home and that he is now afraid for his life.

Thirteen other Palestinian businessmen also attended the conference as representatives of a group called the Palestinian Business Network. 

And that, my friends, is what the Palestinians think of Trump’s peace plan for Israel.


The Sanhedrin has been working on plans for a high-speed rail system connecting Africa, Europe, and Asia for over two decades and conditions now seem ripe to make this vision a reality. The plan was initially conceived by Rabbi Hillel Weiss, the spokesman and a member of the Sanhedrin, in 1981 and presented to the Israeli Minister of Transportation.

And now, the political environment has developed [in such a way that] the Sanhedrin is moving forward with the plan. The biggest obstacles to a global rail network is not money or technology The biggest obstacle is the political cooperation between nations required to coordinate the project’s initiation and operation.

Can you guess what the biggest political obstacle has been for the Sanhedrin? If you guessed that it was those pesky people from the ancient House of Israel now called ‘Palestinians’ and the Palestinian settlements in the West Bank, you guessed correctly.

With that in mind… Can we surmise that Israel’s plan to deport the Palestinians to other surrounding nations could be still in play so Israel can move forward with this global rail network?

The pilgrimage feasts are an essential element of the global rail system. Israel’s international airport is located near Tel Aviv. A high-speed rail system connecting Ben Gurion Airport to Jerusalem was recently completed with additional branches planned including one that will take travelers to the Donald Trump Station at the Western Wall station.

Rabbi Weiss noted that the railway connecting with Jerusalem is only one of many improvements that will be necessary to prepare Jerusalem to host the Third Temple.

“The global rail system will run through the Jordan Valley, stopping at Jericho,” Rabbi Weiss explained. “From there, a tramway would bring pilgrims to the Temple.”

Oooohhhh! That’s why Netanyahu told John Bolton Israel needs to keep the Jordan Valley in Israel’s possession. That is not what this article says. One must be able to connect the dots.

And, by the way, in the future, you and I won’t be allowed to attend the Feasts. Only Jews will be allowed. This is because once the Jewish supremacy doctrine is in place, non-Jews will not be allowed to go to Jerusalem. The Jewish supremacy doctrine specifies that Noahides, non-Jews, are not permitted to perform the Torah’s commandments.

Another aspect of this rail system has to do with foisting the global climate change theory on everyone.

A global rail system would drastically reduce carbon emissions,” Rabbi Weiss said. “If the project is overseen by an organization of 70 Nations in Jerusalem, – all of them subjected to the Sanhedrin – they would be accountable to God for non-compliance.”

So, just as the rabbis decree and God obeys, it appears that the rabbis will decree global science compliance and those who do not comply will be “held accountable”. No one knows, at this point, what being held accountable means in terms of fines, imprisonment or even execution for noncompliance under the Sanhedrin’s rulings.

Russia, China and Iran are also developing transportation infrastructure to connect the eastern hemisphere from north to south.

The International North–South Transport Corridor (INSTC) is a 7,200-km-long[1] multi-mode network of ship, rail, and road route for moving freight between India, Iran, Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Russia, Central Asia and Europe.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani [has been] pushing economic development that will link Iran’s strategic Northern Province with railways and economic corridors to Azerbaijan and via Kazakhstan to China.

The project was delayed on the Iranian side but is now expected to finally be opened. The 164 Qazvin-Rasht section is a key to the North-South Transportation Corridor that will theoretically link India to Europe via this rail network.

Strategically, what Iran is hoping to do in Gilan Province is to prepare itself to withstand the US sanctions and even benefit in coming years, as it works with states that disagree with US policy, including Turkey, Russia and others. It hopes to reap the benefits of the winding down of the Syrian conflict and position itself to improve its weakened economy.

Iran is getting ready to put into operation the Qazvin-Rasht railway to join the International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) and connect to India and Europe via railroad network. This would make transport shorter and cheaper and benefit Iran and other states along the way. It comes as Iran is fighting against the US sanctions that were imposed last year. Iran had sought to complete the corridor during the time it was free from sanctions after the 2015 Iran Deal.

Iran’s network bypasses Israel, and it is clear that, much like the disputes over natural gas and pipelines in the region, that the economic strategy goes hand-in-hand with the larger geo-political changes in the Middle East.

And now, you have more reason to understand why President Trump has not withdrawn US troops from Syria and Israel continues Syrian airstrikes. It’s all about the distribution and the distribution of oil is handled via pipelines in Syria and the movement of goods will be handled by the Russia-China-Iran North-South transportation corridor.

If Iran gains control of Syria, Tehran will choke off Israel’s means of trade north and south. Both the Sanhedrin and the Shi’ite Iranians are attempting global hegemony. Who will get it done first? Right now, Russia, China and Iran are way ahead of the Sanhedrin.

Last Sunday, the City of David hosted an event opening the Pilgrim’s Road, the stairway archaeologists believe was the main thoroughfare for pilgrims ascending to the Temple Mount.

The road originally ascended from the Shiloah Pool to the Temple, but the stairway was hidden, buried under a potato field. Hints of the existence of the City of David were first discovered by archaeologist Captain Charles Warren in 1867.

He discovered a hidden passage to Jerusalem’s biblical water source, the Gihon Spring and other artifacts that predated by thousands of years those found inside the walls of the Old City.

An official recognition of the discovery was held with an inauguration ceremony attended by U.S. Ambassador David Friedman, White House Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and an array of Israeli ministers and members of Knesset were invited to the event.

David Friedman and Jason Greenblatt hammered through the final wall to reconnect a 2,000-year-old road.

The article goes on to say the Jews, “ancient Israelites”, used the road to ascend to the Temple. Let me reiterate as I so often have in the last year that the Jews are not all of the Israelite tribes, though they claim to be.

The Arab League condemned David Friedman and Jason Greenblatt for taking part in the ceremony. Saeed Abu Ali, the Arab League Assistant Secretary-General for Palestine and Occupied Arab Lands, issued a statement saying “the participation of the U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and U.S. Special Envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, at the inauguration of the tunnel proves the American administration’s absolute bias and full adoption of these settlement projects in violation of international consensus and legitimacy”.

In a letter to the head of the Arab League, PLO Executive Committee Secretary Saeb Erekat called on the organization to thwart international support for “the criminal settlement project in Jerusalem,” calling it “an attempt to erase Arab Palestinian Christian and Islamic historical identity and wipe out the Palestinian presence in [the city]”.


According to the Great Recession Blog, the US stock market been trapped at its current value for a year and a half. While the economy, on the surface, appears to be better, the elements of disaster still haunt it.

US manufacturing activity last month fell to its lowest level in nearly three years — well below the pace when President Donald Trump took office — another warning sign for the world’s largest economy as it marks the longest expansion on record.

Now consider what Russia and China have in store for the US economy that could destroy it.

Russia and China are pushing to reduce the role of the US dollar in global trade. The two countries’ Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, recently announced their intention to expand the use of their national currencies –the ruble and the yuan– in bilateral financial transactions. The two states have agreed to develop financial instruments for this purpose and signed an intergovernmental agreement to boost cross-currency settlements. Both are also working on their own alternatives to the globally recognized SWIFT payment system.

Russia has already called on allied emerging economies –Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS)– to develop settlement instruments in national currencies. The anti-dollar push will not go unnoticed and will face a response from Washington, according to the analyst.

Jack Rasmus, professor of political economy at Saint Mary’s College of California said, “The dollar is still the global currency. I think it’ll be a fight with BRICS. The US won’t stand by and do nothing if BRICS join the China-Russia payment system”.

[He] also believes the US is alienating other countries as it imposes sanctions whenever it wants to [and said] sanctions can easily backfire, as countries will turn away from the US if it continues to use them as a political weapon.

Washington could, indeed, trigger a currency war in “two to three years” once it shifts away from the trade war with China, according to Christian Gattiker, head of research at Julius Baer Group.

Among other causes, a currency war begins when a country deliberately depreciates the value of its domestic currency in order to stimulate its own economy.

President Donald Trump has recently accused other countries, China in particular, of manipulating their currencies to gain “unfair” competitive advantages.

Last month the US Commerce Department proposed a new rule to impose anti-subsidy duties on products from countries that Washington sees as undervaluing their currencies against the dollar to get an advantage in trade.

The rule could place goods from Japan, South Korea, India, Germany and Switzerland at risk of higher tariffs. Those countries, along with China, were all listed on the Treasury Department’s currency report’s “monitoring list.” The list tracks currency market interventions, high global current account surpluses and high bilateral trade surpluses.

If these nations see Russia, China and BRICS get the upper hand, guess which currency they will throw under the bus? You guessed it. The US dollar! Then wham! Bad US economy.

Countries across the world seeking to wean themselves off the US dollar is a “matter of self-defense,” according to Mike Maharrey from the Tenth Amendment Center. It will have a very negative effect on the US economy.

To cut their use of the dollar, countries will have to avoid using SWIFT, the world’s largest payment system, which is used by 11,000 financial institutions in 200 countries and is heavily reliant on the greenback.

Maharrey says that while SWIFT claims to be politically neutral, “it’s very obvious that SWIFT is being used by the US and other Western powers as a tool for economic diplomacy.”

Maharrey …also explained that “the US has used the SWIFT system as kind of a billy club, as an instrument of foreign policy.”

He noted that SWIFT has repeatedly blocked access to Russian and Chinese banks, due to US sanctions. That has prompted Moscow and Beijing to adopt various policies for the protection of their national economies.

Most Americans are also not aware that US ally, Saudi Arabia, is floating the US debt which is one way of making a bad economy look good, Mr. Trump.

President Donald Trump’s bromance with Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia is well documented. The platitudes and chummy photo-ops. The billions of dollars in U.S. arms sales. And, of course, the willingness to brush aside evidence implicating the crown prince in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But what’s gone largely unnoticed is just how enthusiastic the kingdom has been in snapping up America’s debt.

Based on the latest reported figures, [Saudi Arabia] nearly doubled its ownership of Treasuries to $177 billion. No major foreign creditor has ramped up its lending to the U.S. faster.

Coincidence? Perhaps. After all, you could probably marshal any number of plausible explanations for the timing of the oil-exporting nation’s buildup that don’t involve some political quid pro quo. Rising petrodollar revenue. Risk aversion. A shift out of negative-yielding bonds. And considering how big the U.S. deficit has grown because of Trump’s tax cuts, the amounts involved won’t move the needle all that much when it comes to America’s financing needs.

…As Trump continues to defend Prince Mohammed in the face of growing criticism on a whole host of issues, from the Saudi-led war in Yemen to his alleged role in the gruesome killing of Khashoggi, the kingdom has everything to gain from appearing to lend financial support to its most important ally — even if it isn’t intentional.

The buildup is also noteworthy because of just how dramatically Saudi Arabia reduced its holdings in the months leading up to the election. In the first nine months of 2016, the kingdom slashed its ownership of Treasuries by almost 30% in its most aggressive retreat in over a decade.

The US – or rather, Donald Trump – is now beholden to Saudi Arabia. The minute Bin Salman snaps his bloody fingers, Trump will be required to do the bloody war dance, most likely!


And just when bad news doesn’t need anything further, there are 35,000 African migrants about to hit the US southern border.

According to CIS’s Todd Bensman on July 1st: Like the proverbial “bulge in the belly of the snake,” unusually high numbers of non-Latino migrants, obviously not from Central America, are now reportedly passing from Colombia through Panama on their way to the U.S. southern border. Their numbers range to the tens of thousands, whose vanguards we have already seen at the U.S. Southwest Border in recent months: Cameroonians, Ghanaians, Congolese, Haitians, Cubans, and some from the Middle East.
