Exposed to Toxins,
About a year ago Seymour Hersh presented the evidence that Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton arranged for Syrian "rebels" to be entrusted with captured Libyan chemical weapons (which were never taken from them under UN oversight).
American Everyman has the evidence (yet again) of this Sarin attack in Syria being a false-flag, at just the right time, and maybe using a bunch of civilians, captured by ISIS for occasion. Same old cookbook pretext-for-war crap... Thanks Tom.
WW-3 Begins, Alexander Dugin (Russian, brilliant):
"The formal decision to attack was taken by Donald Trump. In doing so, he stopped being Trump, and became Hillary disguised as a man, a kind of transvestite. Everything that Trump fought against over the course of the election campaign and which he promised to change – he put his signature underneath all of this today. Therefore, it was not he who took the decision. He simply showed that he is henceforth in no state to decide anything... The Swamp (three manifestations – CFR, the neocons, the Deep State) drained Trump... Maybe Trump will try to “become Trump again,” but this is unlikely."
The White House on Friday declined to respond to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s comments that US President Donald Trump broke a campaign promise by launching a cruise missile strike in Syria without informing Congress.
Congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard:
“It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government. This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia."
Chinese President Xi Jinping got to see President Trump's winter palace at Mar-a-Lago, eat dead cow for dinner, then got a ringside seat to cruise missile attacks on Syrian airbase, based on flimsy pretext for American domestic consumption. The clear message was that the bar is extremely low for using American military might, and might-makes-right.
"Now, we need to talk about North Korea, who kills who, and how we are going to do business." (Later, Xi went back to his hotel room. What I read of body language is that Xi is tolerating the boorish Trump, and both men are trying to read each other. No trust at all. Adversaries. Each seeks dominance.)
This article about the Euro, by expat Limey in France, John Ward depicting it as the Titanic, has a lot of clear factual information
"German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schäuble decided to steer SS Eutanic towards a second iceberg by refusing to cancel the order placed by Greece with Germany (under NATO pressure) for two submarines costing €150bn."
Greece is agreed to have the final crushing contraction of the coils by EU boa-constrictor, taking the last bit of breath, the pensions to the elderly. Pensions feed extended families on beans to make it through the grinding weeks and months and years without work and paychecks. This is the only form of welfare" in Greece.
IMF tutors governments on how to gradually remove cash, without engendering public discourse or creating strife:
"A targeted outreach program is needed to alleviate suspicions related to de-cashing; in particular, that by de-cashing the authorities are trying to control all aspects of peoples’ lives, including their use of money, or push personal savings into banks. The de-cashing process would acquire more traction if it were based on individual consumer choice and cost-benefits considerations."

The Arctic Ocean is becoming more like the Atlantic Ocean, writes a researcher. It's not just the ice disappearing in summer. The entire ecosystem is changing.
Charles Hugh Smith looks at the bug-out-hideaway option for affluent city dwellers. There are problems. This is not an off-the-shelf lifestyle purchase.
"Remote and secret" means "easy to steal": nobody around, plenty of time to take the whole darn thing.
A local news story some years ago illustrated the point: some luckless outsider’s entire bug-out cabin was stolen: not the contents, the entire cabin. The "owner" returned to a bare concrete slab.
