China Warns Trump To Prepare For ‘Military Clash’ In Response To Tillerson Comments

China Warns Trump To Prepare For ‘Military Clash’ In Response To Tillerson Comments

avatar
In response to Rex Tillerson’s comments about China being a threat to the United States, a state-run Chinese media outlet released a statement Friday warning that the Trump administration should “prepare for a military clash.” In Tillerson’s confirmation hearing for secretary of state on Wednesday, he criticized Iran, China, and Russia as being “threats” to the U.S. He specifically called out China, saying that the country is “declaring control of territories that are not rightfully China’s.” He compared China’s deployment of military to other islands, to Russia’s annexation of Crimea. “The island building in the South China Sea itself in many respects in my view building islands then putting military assets on those islands is a kin to Russia’s taking of Crimea,” Tillerson said. The poorly worded response is one that can be taken as Tillerson’s intention to call for a blockade of the South China Sea manmade islands. However, doing so would almost certainly cause war between the U.S. and China, as it is already very delicate situation. In an aggressive editorial in the Global Times, the author accused the former ExxonMobil chief executive of “rabble-rousing.” “The US has no absolute power to dominate the South China Sea. Tillerson had better bone up on nuclear power strategies if he wants to force a big nuclear power to withdraw from its own territories, If Trump’s diplomatic team shapes future Sino-US ties as it is doing now, the two sides had better prepare for a military clash. China has enough determination and strength to make sure that his rabble rousing will not succeed. Unless Washington plans to wage a large-scale war in the South China Sea, any other approaches to prevent Chinese access to the islands will be foolish. “It is hoped that Tillerson will desire a productive partnership with China more and his harsh words are just coaxing the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.” However, China’s foreign ministry has expressed the exact opposite with a spokesman for China saying that geopolitical relations are dependent upon “non-confrontation, non-conflict, mutual benefit and win-win cooperation,” Lu Kang Lu  said. Analyst Bonnie Glaser told Business Insider that she believed Tillerson misspoke, and his words were taken out of context. “He was not speaking with notes in front of him, and this is...

Snowden Blasts Obama For Unchaining NSA Surveillance Before Leaving Office

Snowden Blasts Obama For Unchaining NSA Surveillance Before Leaving Office

avatar
Thank to a new provision President Obama just approved to an existing executive order, the NSA can now share private data it collects on citizens amongst all 16 agencies within the United States intelligence community. Snowden blasted Obama for creating this unprecedented surveillance power. “As he hands the White House to Trump, Obama just unchained NSA from basic limits on passing raw intercepts to others,” NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden tweeted. As he hands the White House to Trump, Obama just unchained NSA from basic limits on passing raw intercepts to others https://t.co/JkbJhTrUsI — Edward Snowden (@Snowden) January 12, 2017 The 23-pages of new guidelines lifts previous limits placed on the way NSA information could be shared amongst the other 15 U.S. intelligence agencies. The NSA is now unfettered to share any “raw signals or intelligence information” legally with the CIA, FBI, etc. While the express purpose of Executive Order 12333 is to target foreign and counter-intelligence if any agency discovers information that incriminates any American citizen, that agency is then required to turn the evidence over to the Justice Department. However, the provisions for targeting American citizens have been redacted from the document, so the extent of how this order can be used is unknown. Current U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s general counsel, Robert S. Litt, speaking on behalf of Clapper has said in a statement that, “This is not expanding the substantive ability of law enforcement to get access to signals intelligence. It is simply widening the aperture for a larger number of analysts, who will be bound by the existing rules.” Incoming President Donald Trump could expand these powers to affect the FISA Act even further, with Republicans having control of the U.S. House and Senate. Even if expanded powers are challenged, Republicans are expected to dominate the new Supreme Court with President Trump’s soon to be announced pick for the Supreme Court. [RELATED: How Trump’s Surveillance State Will Affect You] Remember, Donald Trump’s picks for attorney general, Senator Jeff Sessions, and director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, both have advocated for extensive domestic government spying.

“Washington Seems On Brink Of Civil War” Claims German Politician

If it’s not clear by now that the U.S. intelligence community and nationalist U.S. elite supporting the new Trump information are engaged in civil war being fought with information, here is a view from the outside. A former member of German parliament sees that the strife in Washington amid conflicting reports saying that Russia hacked the DNC and the U.S. despite the FBI or any other intelligence agency for that matter ever having access to the DNC’s server. ““When you see the situation in Washington, I think they are not willing, those who lost the election, to accept the new president whose name is Trump… What’s going on in Washington sounds like the beginning of a civil war,” Wimmer said. Then there are the apparent leaks throughout the 2016 election, which as former NSA Technical Director William Binney and other intelligence officials and Judge Napolitano note, have all the markings of a massive inside intelligence leak on Hillary Clinton, the DNC, George Soros and Colin Powell. Additionally, there are the anonymous leaks of “information” to the Washington Post like the Russians hacking the election with no proof given – just words or that incredulous list calling anyone who could source Hillary’s scandals Russian propaganda. Finally, there is Hillary Clinton’s own FBI case which faced a number of leaks throughout the election of insiders coming out leaking what we now know as documented fact. The fact that Hillary Clinton was under not one, but at least two separate probes by the FBI, one focusing around her server the other focusing around the Clinton Foundation which is still ongoing. The Fraudation probe I have been speaking about for as far back as it started due to my own “anonymous” sources. FBI agents even leaked information on Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to a dormant FBI twitter account FBIVault. There is a clear animosity growing within the government between both former and current officials just the same way as some were against Hillary Clinton some are against President-elect Donald Trump. The only difference here is that it seems like the latter is just making up information and releasing it exhibit A.) Donald Trump’s golden shower “intelligence report.” Which now the Director of intelligence...

DOJ Official: Whistleblower Chelsea Manning on Obama’s ‘Short List’ for Commutation

DOJ Official: Whistleblower Chelsea Manning on Obama’s ‘Short List’ for Commutation

avatar
There is an important decision President Obama may make in the coming days that could reverse some of the damage he has done—Chelsea Manning is officially on the “shortlist” of the persons who could have their sentences commuted by Obama before he leaves office. One thing to remember is that having a sentence commuted is not the same as having it fully pardoned. It would mean lessening the charges against Manning and lessening the prison sentence she is serving. Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, is currently serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material. She has been in prison since 2010 after releasing 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. What did those military files include? Proof of torture, abuse, American soldiers laughing as they killed innocent civilians, graphic video of attack helicopters killing civilians, and much more that resulted in huge geopolitical repercussions on the U.S. It is important to note that the people Manning exposed for torturing and murdering civilians received a lesser sentence than she did. For example, Sgt. Santos Cardona was accused of “using his animal to threaten detainees at Abu Ghraib prison,” and was “found guilty of two of five counts against him, including aggravated assault and dereliction of duty,” and as a result, he was sentenced to “90 days hard labor, a reduction of rank, and must forfeit $600 of pay per month for a year.” Already, Manning has attempted suicide twice while in prison. She also went on a hunger strike over her treatment and the UN torture chief even ruled that Manning’s treatment in jail is cruel and inhumane. As we know, Obama has used the Espionage Act more than all previous presidents combined in order to persecute whistleblowers and journalists, and he has gone after anyone who has attempted to expose what the U.S. government is doing in secret. The question remains as to whether he will have any grace for Chelsea Manning before it is too late. Mr. President, if you grant only one act of clemency as you exit the White House, please: free Chelsea Manning. You alone can save her life. — Edward Snowden (@Snowden) January 11, 2017 What do you think? Let us know in...

James Alefantis Threatens PizzaGate Researcher Ryan A. O’Neal

James Alefantis Threatens PizzaGate Researcher Ryan A. O’Neal

In a video uploaded to Youtube, Pizzagate researcher Ryan A. O’Neal alleges that James Alefantis threatened him and his family’s lives – and the evidence is breathtaking and creepy. http://wearechange.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Pegasus-Video-Removed-Because-of-Alefantis-Threats.mp4 In the video above, O’Neal shows a series of messages with James Alefantis which purport to show threats made by the DC pizza shop owner. O’Neal has since filed a police report. In the alleged messages Alefantis cryptically says, “Everything they say about me is true except I don’t like kids.” O’Neal claims to have compelling evidence that the allegations of Alefantis’ involvement in a pedophile ring are true. “We are ninety-nine percent sure where it is,” Ryan O’Neal stated in a recent video he uploaded entitled “Pegasus kill-room” seen below. http://wearechange.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/KILL-ROOM-FOUND-Pegasus-Museum-owned-by-Alefantis-is-home-t.mp4 In the video, O’Neal identifies the now infamous “kill room,” which he says has a specific brick pattern. He then traces it back to an original post on the “jimmycomet” Instagram page (which has now been made private). Internet sleuths found that the exact room and brick wall match up to an image found on a “margotwork.com,” according to O’Neal. O’Neal also makes claims alleging the man featured in the picture, holding a blowtorch, is “Joe Wills.” He further claims Wills is “one of the guys who helped design Comet Ping Pong” and states that the building in question, containing the “kill room” is not Comet Ping Pong but is the “Pegasus Museum,” located at 3518 11th St. R NW. The museum is “completely surrounded by other buildings” and even a “playground,” O’Neal states in the video. O’Neal goes on to say that Alefantis contacted Joe Wills about a new roof design via his Instagram. In the Voat.co investigation researchers note that Alefantis asks Wills about his “thoughts” on the design. O’Neal attempts to connect the dots and prove that James Alefantis is also the C.E.O. of Castellum Achilles LLC. Shepard Ambellas, writing for Intellihub, noted the connection between the LLC name and the ancient Latin for “a watchtower”. He also noted that public records showed that the building had construction permits issued around the same time. Additionally, Ambelas added, “spray painting on the wall clearly says ‘kids’ with a down arrow.” “This connection also demonstrates that Alefantis is...

Top Russian Diplomat to Greece Andrey Malanin Found Dead

Top Russian Diplomat to Greece Andrey Malanin Found Dead

Russian diplomat Andrey Malanin, 54, was discovered dead on the floor in the bedroom in his Athens apartment last night, Greek police confirmed. The senior Russian diplomat was found dead by embassy staff. This marks what seems like a pattern of four strange deaths in a month’s time, as Malanin’s death follows the assassination of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, the death of another Russian diplomat, Russian Foreign Minister Peter Polshikov, found dead in his apartment shot in the head, and the death of Yves Chandelon, Chief Auditor of NATO in charge of counterterrorism funding, shot dead in the head in his car. Police do not suspect any foul play in this case, and a police spokesperson said the body had no visible injuries and there had been no obvious break-in. “At first sight, we are talking about natural causes,” he, said. Police further added that a coroner will examine the body, while homicide officers will also investigate the death. It’s worth noting that governments, specifically the CIA, have for long periods of time had chemical concoctions that can induce full systematic shutdown of a person’s nervous system. Former CIA employee Mary Embree discusses the infamous heart attack gun and how she was tasked with finding a chemical condition that would cause a heart attack. The weapon was first made public during the Church Committee hearings in 1975 by former CIA director William Colby. Very lethal and untraceable, by using this weapon a murder is made to look natural while the poison dissolves in hours. It is highly unlikely the CIA commissioned this weapon with no intention to use it, and in all likelihood the CIA has been using this weapon and created more advanced versions of it since the 1970’s. With that said, other intelligence agencies and state actors would also likely have this type of chemical warfare by now. A few examples of such known poisons are – Death Camas is a rather pretty blue wild-flower that breaks down very quickly and probably doesn’t come up in a lot of toxicology test. Succinylcholine or SUX for short, is a neuromuscular paralytic drug which is almost untraceable unless you know what you are looking for. It paralyzes all the muscles...

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (WeAreChange) — AFP reports that a spate of bombings in 3 Afghan cities have left 50 people dead and 100 wounded. At least 11 people died when explosives packed inside a sofa detonated inside the governor’s compound in southern Kandahar during a visit by the UAE ambassador to Afghanistan, who reportedly escaped the attack with injuries. Just two hours prior, the town of Kabul was rocked by two terrorist attacks which killed at least 30 and wounded 80 others. According to the official who spoke to AFP, the majority of those killed in the Kabul attacks were civilians, including parliamentary employees who were leaving the parliament complex as the attack took place during rush hour. Taliban insurgents were quick to claim responsibility for the bombings. An injured parliament security guard named  Zabi told AFP: “The first explosion happened outside the parliament… a number of innocent workers were killed and wounded. It was caused by a suicide bomber on foot.” “The second one was a car bomb. It was parked on the other side of the road and flung me back when it detonated,” he said. Describing the car bomb, the guard said: “It was parked on the other side of the road and flung me back when it detonated.” Caleb Stephen Caleb Stephen is a Christian conservative freelance journalist, columnist, political activist and the founder and Editor-In-Chief of The Caleb Report (CalebReport.com).

Multiple Reports of Racist Trump Graffiti in South Philly

Multiple Reports of Racist Trump Graffiti in South Philly

avatar
Within twelve hours of America electing Donald Trump, no less than four instances of graffiti were reported to local police in South Philadelphia. Some of that graffiti was openly and cowardly racist. I saw the report from Philly.com, which included a picture of the words ‘Sieg Heil’ spray painted in black on an empty storefront window on Broad Street. I recognized the storefront. I’d passed it dozens of times, on my way to and back from the local grocery store. Immediately, I stopped what I was working on, putting my keys in my pocket and slipping out of my slippers and into a pair of shoes. I darted down the steps of my apartment and out into the street. Running the nearly two and a half blocks to Broad Street, I stopped at the corner. A group of people were situated on the curb, about twenty feet from the empty storefront window. I observed the glass. Everything was wiped away. And yet the picture, I realized, would stay in my brain. How did I know that? I felt it, when I got back to my apartment in the hazy, drizzling rain, gray and cloudy skies above, a damp and somber impression fecundated into my head and heart. I’m going to remember this day. More racist graffiti was also reported on the 1300 block of South Broad Street. ‘RUMP’ spray painted in black. The letter ‘T’ was there instead of a swastika. It is hard to know if the graffiti was sprayed by someone supporting Trump – or someone mocking Trump’s election as racist. Philadelphia is its own county, a blue one, in Pennsylvania. When the election results started coming in last night, it was almost assumed that Clinton would be taking the 20 electoral votes from the state. Instead, those results didn’t come in until well after ten o’clock at night. Maybe it was even after eleven o’clock, when finally Trump was declared the winner of Pennsylvania, one of many red states that solidified his victory in the presidential election which endlessly exuded a divided nation. Clinton secured about ten counties in Pennsylvania. It wasn’t enough. Trump won the state by nearly 70,000 votes. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson took 142,653 votes, while Green Party...

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results Written by Dustin Schoof True artists take risks, even in the face of uncertainty. After spending years fronting power rock trio The Almighty Terribles, singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Cahill tunes in to a much different frequency on his new concept album, Cahill vs. Kalma (due out Oct. 31). The result is a fascinating, sci-fi sonic collision between Cahill (who provides the “human” perspective of the narrative, along with vocals and guitar) and fellow multi-instrumentalist Brian “Kalma” Herman (the “robotic” voice in the equation); The Matrix meets Her, scored by Gary Numan. More digital than dirge, Cahill vs. Kalma finds its balance in a fusion of acoustic guitars and electronic beats. The album — a three-year undertaking — also features guest instrumentation from Alex Radus, Andy Janowiak and Dallas Vietty. Standout track “Don’t, Man” is an up-tempo ditty that swings with a futuristic sock-hop beat. The lead single, “Future Shock,” slows down the tempo ever without losing punch or depth. There is a subtle, Frank Zappa-esque nuance to the way Cahill approaches the music, while the song titles alone provide a quick, and clear, glimpse into the dystopian, machine-versus-man theme laid out in his lyrics. “Did you ever think that this day would come? The machines control everyone, super-intellgent and waiving a hundred guns” he ponders in the hypnotic “Singularity.” Yet, it’s within that clash of ideals and scoffing at mankind’s disturbingly addictive dependence on machines that Cahill and Herman create a harmonious, symbiotic sound. In turn, the two have a created a new music sub-genre: Borgstep. Cahill vs. Kalma is the kind of album that deserves to be heard in full. It is an experience more than it is a collection of songs and random thoughts, or blips and bleeps, if you will. Sure, it may seem a bit odd, surreal, trippy, spacey or a combination of all four. Yet Cahill vs. Kalma consistently sparks with creativity. When artificial intelligence eventually enslaves us all, Cahill vs. Kalma is the soundtrack the robots will be slamming to. davecahill I’m a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, political activist, web developer and small business owner.
