With less than a month until the next big NATO meeting, scheduled for the first week of December, France’s Macron has jumped into public relations mode to prepare the public for some big changes on the horizon.

U.S. Continues to Draw Lines in Eastern Mediterranean

Published 2019-11-20 13:30:21 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Israel, Mena, Russia, United-States

From November 3 to November 14, Israeli, U.S., German, Italian and Greek war jets participated in the “Blue Flag 2019” military exercises out of the Ovda Air Base in Israel’s Negev Desert. The timing of these exercises corresponds with Turkey and a whole host of other countries conducting their own naval exercises in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Lines are certainly being drawn in the Eastern Mediterranean between pro-U.S. forces and states seeking their own sovereignty away from U.S. hegemony, especially Turkey. Greece proves to be a curious country at the moment, since one of its warships participated in the… Continue ->

The UK is very keen at reminding certain countries – Syria, Russia, China – of their human rights abuses and yet, when it comes to looking closer to home, this current government quite frankly prefers not to, and in some cases deliberately try to obfuscate the truth. Leaked documents have revealed that not only was the UK army involved in war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2000s, but Conservative ministers succeeded in covering it up. Military detectives unveiled alleged ‘daily’ abuse dating back as far as 2003 by the Black Watch regiment in Basra as well as more… Continue ->

Albuquerque, New Mexico – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Monero – the names of digital-based cryptocurrencies are being heard more and more frequently. But despite having no physical representation, could these new methods of exchange actually be negatively impacting our planet? It’s a question being asked by researchers at The University of New Mexico, who are investigating the environmental impacts of mining cryptocurrencies. “What is most striking about this research is that it shows that the health and environmental costs of cryptocurrency mining are substantial; larger perhaps than most people realized,” said Benjamin Jones, UNM Researcher and asst. professor of economics….

Published 2019-11-20 10:00:38 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Headline-News, Iran, Mena, Politics, United-States

TEHRAN/WASHINGTON, D.C. – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has once again made remarks in support of riots in Iran, interfering in the country’s domestic affairs in support of, not people’s right of protest, but riots by saboteurs. Turning a blind eye to the escalating radical violent crimes in a number of cities that seriously trample the rule of law, Pompeo retweeted on Saturday a previous message sent to the Iranian people in July 2018, reminding them, “The United States is with you”. Pompeo had sent a message last year saying, “The United States hears you. The United States supports… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-20 00:23:08 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Conspiracy-Theories, Headline-News, Ukraine, United-States

The Open Society and Anti-Defamation League have gone ballistic last week demanding for the unprecedented eternal banning of Joe DiGenova from Fox News… or else. DiGenova (former Federal Attorney for the District of Columbia) committed a grievous crime indeed, calling out the unspeakable “philanthropist” George Soros on Fox News’ Lou Dobbs Show on Nov. 14 as a force controlling a major portion of the American State Department and FBI. To be specific, DiGenova stated: “no doubt that George Soros controls a very large part of the career foreign service of the United States State Department.
