Look Both Ways


"White Helmets" (nice former-terrorist, who save people) are evacuated from Syria, into Israeli-held Golan, and transferred to special sealed-shelter areas in Jordan. 
A total of 422 people (the White Helmets and the members of their families) were pulled out, according to official figures.  Now they are being held in a secret shelter inside Jordan, and in three months they will be resettled in Britain, Canada, and Germany. Far from the cameras. And since the data on their subsequent whereabouts will be strictly classified, no one will be able to stop the West from quietly killing off the most important and most dangerous of them. Just to be on the safe side.

​Trump's "Tweet of Mass Destruction" about Iran. Pepe Escobar has the story. Some high points include: 
Trump proactively dominates news and looks tough for Republican voters. 
Iranian people and government become completely united against Trump and commit to closing Strait of Hormuz if sanctions prevent Iran from shipping oil to the world. They can do it. Really. They cannot be stopped from closing the strait to tankers for as long as they want. 
That would crash the global economy. 
Israelis, Saudis and Emiris are dancing.​

54% of Americans think it's a good idea for President Putin to come to Washington to talk to President Trump about stressful-world things.

This money trail to the Steele Dossier, Magnitsky Act, dummy Gazprom holdings, and $150 million in evaded taxes leads to one mysterious billionaire, who dropped American citizenship and became a subject of the British Crown after doing business in Russia for 10 years on a tourist visa. He still has a lot of engagement in American politics (behind the scenes). Thanks Eleni.

​More: ​ Bill Browder, who benefited enormously from Russian corruption, has expertly repackaged himself as a paragon among businessmen, endearing himself to the Russia-haters in Washington and the media. Curiously, however, he has proven reluctant to testify in cases regarding his own business dealings. He has, for example, repeatedly run away, literally, from attempts to subpoena him so he would have to testify under oath.

Trump Tweet Decries Twitter Shadow Banning Republicans (not missing a beat)​

​Goldman Sachs: "Ceasefire with Europe will Make Trump's Trade War with China Even Worse"

Gold has been taking​ a beating from the Fed-and-Friends for the past month, beginning with 3 days in a row of being knocked down deep and hard at New York COMEX open (clear signal from "masters"). It had been toying with breaking through $1300 to the upside, just before that. Mish Shedlock is getting close to buying some bottom soon. (I'm nobody, but physical gold in-possession looks like a good investment, especially if it gets under $1200/oz.)

In a brief statement from Ambassador John Bolton, The White House has confirmed that the next meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin will take place after the completion of the Mueller Russia probe.
“The President believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russia witch hunt is over, so we’ve agreed that it will be after the first of the year.”
2019 seems a bit optimistic for the end of that 'watch hunt'...although obviously that will be after the MidTerms.

In one year MSNBC covered "Stormy Daniels" 455 times, "War in Yemen" 0 times...
On July 2, a year had passed since the cable network’s last segment mentioning US participation in the war on Yemen, which has killed in excess of 15,000 people and resulted in over a million cases of cholera. The US is backing a Saudi-led bombing campaign with intelligence, refueling, political cover, military hardware and, as of March, ground troops.

Really Excellent Sex Dolls may depopulate Japan, like those sterile male flies and mosquitoes are designed to do. Seems like China might be at the same risk, too.
