A British Trick? This Is Not The Bernie Sanders He’s Represented Himself To Be


On Sunday Oct. 11, just as Barack Obama was being shown up again, on “60 Minutes,” for the aggressive, blustering, but weak “British war President” he’s turned out to be, he received lavish praise from Bernie Sanders on “Face the Nation.”

This is, presumably, the Bernie Sanders who wanted a candidate to challenge the “deeply disappointing” Obama, running for re-election, three years ago. The Bernie Sanders who said then, on the Thom Hartman television show:

There are millions of Americans who are deeply disappointed in the President, who believe that with regard to Social Security and a number of other issues, he said one thing as a candidate, and is doing something very much else as a President; who cannot believe how weak he has been – for whatever reason — in negotiating with the Republicans. And there’s deep disappointment. One of the reasons the president has been able to move so far to the right is that there is no primary opposition to him. And I do think it would do this country a good deal of service if people started thinking about candidates out there, to begin contrasting what is a progressive agenda, as opposed to what Obama is doing.

So, candidate Sanders has done a recent flip, one which will hurt him in electoral terms, just as Hillary Clinton has been hurt by appearing to be a mouthpiece for Obama. It can be noted that Bernie Sanders’ on-line fundraising is being run by the same leading people who ran the same for Obama in 2007-08, two of whom have been working for the White House since; and this Obama fundraising operation has boosted Sanders’ fundraising up to Hillary Clinton’s level. But the more important matter is whether Bernie Sanders has become part of a bigger British trick corrupting the Democratic primary, effectively letting Obama pick its winner, and suppressing the recently dominant dynamic of candidates backing restoration of Glass-Steagall, and pushing other candidates in that direction.

Obama has been an agent of Wall Street/City of London interests, and British wars, throughout his Presidency. Wall Street and London, facing a new financial collapse, want, above all, to crush the Glass-Steagall dynamic out of the election campaign.

The same kind of British tricks were run in Obama’s first campaign for President, and in other campaigns in American history, making them fraudulent.

Is Bernie Sanders reliable? Why did he omit mention on Oct. 11 of his hitherto support of restoring Glass- Steagall? Where is his mind now; where will it be tomorrow?

The British and Their Agent Obama Go Wild

We’re taking a step closer to war…The Sunday Times

The genocidal British Empire has leapt into the breach, inside the U.S. and internationally, to try to rescue its puppet Barack Obama, who has been totally outflanked and outwitted by Russian President Vladimir Putin, thus putting the very existence of the British system on the chopping block.

Most dramatically, Democratic Presidential pre-candidate Bernie Sanders, who has been played by the media as the “leading opposition figure” to the current Washington administration, came out with a full-throated endorsement of Obama on national television on Sunday — on the eve of next Tuesday’s nationally televised debate of Democratic candidates. Sanders, proving himself a total British asset, pronounced that he has “enormous respect for Barack Obama… He helped me get elected and I work with him on many, many issues…. only very partisan people refuse to acknowledge reality, [that] our economy today is a heck of a lot better than it was when George W. Bush left office.” This, when the burning issue facing the country is returning to Glass-Steagall and wiping out Wall Street, and everything that the Bush and Obama administrations represent. It should not be surprising that, according to well-placed Washington sources and some media accounts, much of Sanders’s fundraising apparatus was seconded to him by Barack Obama.

Lyndon LaRouche yesterday described the Sanders development as “real ugly, bad news,” that reflects a shift underway by the British globally. He warned that we should expect further, “devilish” actions by Obama and his British sponsors, including assassinations of leading figures of countries that are working with Russian President Putin. “The British have nothing left, except actions such as that,” LaRouche emphasized. The British Empire is about to lose its very existence, so look for every imaginable kind of dirty business coming from those quarters, which have otherwise not been visibly active for a while.

When Obama gets in trouble he turns to the British, LaRouche stated, so expect dirty actions, including direct British deployments into the U.S. to try to reinforce the unstable Obama psychologically.

Also, notable in that regard is the weekend report in the Sunday Times of London that the British government has issued instructions to its pilots flying missions in Syria that authorize them to shoot down Russian planes under certain conditions: “If a pilot is fired on or believes he is about to be fired on, he can defend himself” [emphasis added]. The Russian Defense Ministry considered the press report to be serious enough to warrant summoning the British Defense Attache in Moscow to explain the matter.

“Don’t forget who Obama is,” LaRouche warned. He is a lying, murderous, Satanic figure. His record is known. “Obama has to be crushed,” LaRouche stated today. The only way to remove the danger of World War III is by removing Obama from the White House.

I’m in, let’s get him out.


British Pilots Authorized to Shoot Down Russian Planes over Syria

An article by Romil Patel in the Oct. 11 International Business Times reports that British “Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the go-ahead to shoot down Russian military jets when flying missions over Syria and Iraq, if they are endangered by them.” Patel cites an article in the Sunday Times of London, which quotes an unnamed source from the UK’s Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) describing the new order of battle:

“The first thing a British pilot will do is to try to avoid a situation where an air-to-air attack is likely to occur… you avoid an area if there is Russian activity. But if a pilot is fired on or believes he is about to be fired on, he can defend himself. We now have a situation where a single pilot, irrespective of nationality, can have a strategic impact on future events” [emphasis added].

To facilitate such a potential incident, RAF Tornado aircraft will now be armed with heat-seeking air-to-air missiles, capable of flying at Mach-3. This, Patel writes, would “allow RAF pilots to shoot down enemy aircraft without being targeted themselves.”

A second British military source told the Sunday Times: “We’re taking a step closer to war. It will only take one plane to be shot down in an air-to-air battle and the whole landscape will change.”

LaRouche Charges Obama Deliberately Bombed MSF Hospital

“There’s no question about this,” Lyndon LaRouche stated Saturday, the Oct. 3 bombing of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, “was an Obama-determined and -promoted murder, respecting hatred against Putin. He did it deliberately. And he went in two phases. First, the first attacked occurred. Then the message came out of what was being done at that hospital, the famous special hospital there. And they continued! And Obama let the thing be continued.”

LaRouche’s charge was made in the context of a broader discussion with participants in his Oct. 10 Dialogue with the Manhattan Project, on the “new state of organization” which Russian President Vladimir Putin has created in the United States itself, by his flanking move in Syria. Putin’s actions have left Obama and people like him without options, and Obama, a Satanic personality per se, “has gone wild,” LaRouche said. “Obama launched this attack on the hospital and murdered people! Just plain murdered them.”

Medecins Sans Frontieres International President Joanne Liu’s Oct. 7 call for the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission (IHFFC) to investigate this war crime was published yesterday as an op-ed in the Sunday Independent of South Africa, backed up by a factsheet detailing the facts of the 80-minute military attack which not only killed 22 people, doctors and children alike, but also partially destroyed the only hospital in north-eastern Afghanistan capable of providing high-level life- and limb-saving trauma care; the hospital is no longer operational.

The IHFFC was established under Article 90 of the First Protocol additional to the Geneva Conventions, setting out procedures for ensuring the respect for, and faithful implementation of, international humanitarian law.

In an exclusive interview with Germany’s Deutsche Welle, which is to air in full on Oct. 14, NATO Supreme Commander and four-star U.S. Air Force General, Gen. Philip Breedlove, said that he supports the investigation called for by Doctors Without Borders through the IHFFC. It is “their absolute right to ask for this investigation,” Breedlove said, and “we’re going to support it.”

And what has the Obama team come up with now to take the heat off, for this war crime? It will have the Pentagon offer money (“compensation payments”) to the victims of its air strike, including the MSF, and help in repairing the destroyed hospital.

They Said it Could Never Happen, but LaRouche Stuck to His Guns, and Now it Has Happened!

“The Russians are here to win the war; this is what everyone knows.” Ali Hashem, chief news correspondent for Al Mayadeen News Network, writing in Al-Monitor October 7, quoted these words from a Lebanese source of his. Yes, it’s absolutely true, and every witting person does indeed know it. After months of planning, Putin has gone in to win. Americans find that impossible to believe just yet, because our country has been at war during most of the years since World War II,— but not to win. Never to win. Just the opposite,— the wars into which the British Empire has thrown us, as through Barack Obama, have been perpetual wars aimed at chaos, population-reduction, and the destruction of the US. No-win wars. But nevertheless, Putin actually went in to win; he intends to win.

And today was the second day of a “vast offensive,” as the Syrian Army put it, in which Russian airpower has been directly supporting Syrian troops in combat for the first time.

And it’s not even the war as such. More important, the alliance has totally reinvigorated Syria.

Now, nothing is the same. Everything has changed.

What is now happening in Syria, and in reality much more broadly, is exactly what Lyndon LaRouche said had to happen. Everyone else said, “I agree it’s needed, but it can’t happen.” LaRouche was right. Now they’re saying that “Yes, Wall Street must be shut down,— I agree it’s needed,— but it can’t happen.” Who will be proven right in the end?

Lyndon LaRouche will. He addressed a meeting of associates in roughly the following terms today.

The Obama freakout is continuing to spiral out of control; everything he does is blowing up. There is panic in the White House: expect self-inflicted wounds and punishments. Obama must be brought down! Shut down Wall Street and you bring down Obama at the same time.

On the whole, US leadership is disgusting. Compare it with the morality which has come forth in Germany in response to the refugee crisis. If it were not for Putin, we’d all be dead. At its root, the problem of the US is that it is a crooked, rotten society. But at the same time, there are some Americans, such as some of our military flag-officers, who have an elevated sense of responsibility, which sometimes goes way beyond their formal responsibilities. Such as dealing with Obama.

Can you tell the truth to Obama? No. Merkel is more forthcoming, but it’s a close call whether she can stay in office, or else will find herself replaced by forces who would be far worse than even Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble.

The problem is that the ideology of the Twentieth Century doesn’t function. The Twentieth Century has replaced morality by mathematics.

Now, Obama’s influence over Hillary Clinton is collapsing, and she’s abandoning him. He’s being rejected by Democrats and others; no one’s defending him. When we tell them he must be removed, instead of saying, “No,” as they did before, they say they agree, and ask how it can be done.

All of this was just there waiting to happen, until the moment when it was all triggered by Putin’s courageous action. What Putin has done is clear,— just look at his family background in World War II in the way he sees it. This is generally atypical for Europe. He is a man with a moral sense of purpose and a mission, who won’t be deterred or sidetracked. Putin is doing in Syria what LaRouche expected him to do.

Meanwhile, in the US Presidential selection-process, there is no single candidate who stands out as ready to do what is necessary. We need a process involving a number of candidates contributing to it. We have to build a unified Presidential team around a mission, rather than a personality.

Kerry is able to act in violation of Obama’s crazy policies because he knows that he has backing, and Obama has been rejected. Now, we must take it to the next step.

I’m interested, tell me more


Russian Defense Ministry: US Not Fighting ISIS

“The US Air Force and other parties have been conducting airstrikes for a year.  We have reasons to believe that they don’t often hit terrorist targets, or rather do so very rarely,” Igor Konashenkov, the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, told RT.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said:

“The refusal to share intelligence on terrorists just confirms once more what we knew from the very start, that the US goals in Syria have little to do with creating the conditions for a political process and national reconciliation.  I would risk saying that by doing this the US and the countries that joined the US-led coalition are putting themselves in a politically dubious position.  The question is: which side are you fighting for in this war?”

Ryabkov said that Russia would do quite well without US intelligence, since it has plenty of other sources.  “There are our own means of reconnaissance.  We get intelligence from a number of other countries and coordinate its flow through the Baghdad information-sharing center,” he said.

Obama Petulantly Says No to Russian Cooperation

Officials at the Pentagon and the State Department, reflecting the views of the President himself, made clear yesterday that the Obama Administration will not share intelligence with the Russians on ISIS, or cooperate with Russia against ISIS in any other way.

“I don’t know how you share intelligence when you don’t share a common objective,” said State Deaprtment spokesman John Kirby.  The “common objective” that the Russians don’t share is the overthrow of Syria’s legitimately-elected President Bashar al Assad.

“If there are some forces that also have weapons in their hands and are on the ground fighting, as the coalition says, with the Islamic State, and they should not be touched, then wonderful,” said Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.  “Give the list, give the call signs of these people, tell us where are they located, explain why they shouldn’t be touched.  Indeed, this information is not provided.”

The US response to the Russian offer is, in effect, “not on your life.” Unnamed US officials told the New York Times that the last thing they were going to do was provide coordinates for where American-backed opposition groups were, lest they be bombed by the Russians as part of Moscow’s alleged “effort to back Assad.”

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, while in Italy yesterday, went so far as to describe Russia’s strategy as “tragically flawed,” and claim that, therefore, the US could not cooperate with the Russian campaign. Carter said:

“We believe that Russia has the wrong strategy. They continue to hit targets that are not ISIL.  We believe this is a fundamental mistake…We are not prepared to cooperate in a strategy which is tragically flawed, and that is why I said the United States is not collaborating with Russia.”

Russian Cruise Missile Strikes Reveal Previously Unknown Capabilities

While the Obama Administration and its co-thinkers in the think-tank world in Washington squawk and complain about the Russian military offensive in Syria, it, in fact, is revealing serious Russian military capabilities that were previously little understood, if known at all.  Daniel Fielding, staff writer for Russia Insider, makes the point succinctly in an article published yesterday.  He writes that the missile strikes confirm two things: “(1) that the Russians again have demonstrated a capability that previously only the US had demonstrated; and
(2) that the coalition they have created with Syria, Iran, and Iraq is a fully operating reality, that is able to confer and agree on missile strikes.”

The critics complain that Russia could easily have hit the same targets using the aircraft that it has flying out of Latakia, but Fielding writes that “supplementing the aircraft strike force with long-range missiles greatly increases tactical flexibility, enabling a greater number of targets to be attacked.”  That is, the missiles are appropriate weapons for going after large, fixed targets, freeing the aircraft to go after more mobile targets such as trucks or artillery.  “Subsonic cruise missiles are exceptionally difficult to observe and track — and shoot down — so the element of surprise is increased. The Islamic State now knows it can be attacked anywhere and at any time — day or night — without warning.”

As for why from the Caspian Sea rather than the Mediterranean Sea, where the Russian Navy is maintaining a strong task force, Fielding writes, “The US has very powerful fleet and intelligence assets in the Mediterranean — as do US allies such as Israel.  Launching their missiles from the Caspian Sea enables the Russians to do so without outside observation or interference.”

In Moscow, Col.-Gen. Andrei Kartapolov, head of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian General Staff, confirmed that the missile strike had been coordinated with both Tehran and Baghdad, as the missiles had to fly several hundred kilometers through those two countries’ air space to get to their targets in Syria.  He stressed that all the targets had been properly analyzed using the data received from space and radio reconnaissance, communications interception, and photos made by UAVs.  Data collected by intelligence of Syria, Iran, and Iraq, including human intelligence, was also used, and all of the targets were verified, according to a press release posted by the Russian Defense Ministry.

Syrian-Russian Offensive Underway

Syrian ground forces, in coordination with the Russian air contingent based in Latakia, have launched an offensive against Islamist militant groups in Aleppo, Latakia, and Hama provinces.  News reports indicate that the offensive began Wednesday, following the cruise missile strikes launched from Russian ships in the Caspian Sea.  The Chief of Staff of the Syrian Army, Gen. Ali Abdullah Ayoub, went on Syrian TV yesterday to report that the army has “taken the reins of military operations,” to form the 4th Assault Corps, in the aftermath of Syrian and Russian air strikes that have killed hundreds of terrorists in the three aforementioned provinces.  According to the official SANA news agency, Ayoub announced that the Syrian armed forces started a large-scale assault today, aimed at uprooting the gatherings of terrorists and expelling them from the areas and towns which have been suffering the woes and crimes of terrorism.

According to the Wall Street Journal, citing a rebel commander in the area, the Syrian ground assault began at daybreak yesterday, on multiple fronts, with airstrikes and a barrage of rocket and artillery fire.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported today that its jets in Syria had hit 27 targets in 22 sorties overnight.  “The [russian] bombers targeted eight militant strongholds in the province of Homs.  The militants’ fortifications were completely destroyed by the strikes,” said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov.
