Russland-Affäre: Heute macht es bumm – US-Moderator kündigt brisante Enthüllungen an — RT Deutsch

Vor einer Woche leitete Fox-News-Moderator Sean Hannity einen ominösen Countdown ein. Für Dienstag kündigte er das Platzen einer medialen Bombe an. Nur soviel scheint klar: Es geht dabei um die vermeintliche Russland-Affäre des US-Präsidenten Donald Trump.

Lawrow: „Friedensnobelpreisträger Obama hat auf schlimmste Weise auf Russland gespuckt“

https://deutsch.rt.com/kurzclips/59163-lawrow-friedensnobelpreistrager-obama-hat-auf-russland-gespuckt/   17.10.2017

Der russische Außenminister Sergej Lawrow hat am Montag Fragen von Studenten auf dem 19. Weltfestival der Jugend und Studenten in Sotschi beantwortet. Er äußerte sich auch zum ehemaligen US-Präsidenten Barack Obama. Dieser hätte laut Lawrow in der schlimmsten Art und Weise auf die Beziehungen zu Russland gespuckt und das, obwohl er ein Friedensnobelpreisträger ist.

„Als die Regierung unter Obama, dem Friedensnobelpreisträger, auf die Beziehungen zwischen Russland und den USA in der schlimmsten möglichen Weise gespuckt hat – als [Washington] im Dezember letzten Jahres das diplomatische Eigentum der russischen Regierung unrechtmäßig enteignete und 35 unserer Diplomaten mit Familien, mit Kleinkindern, nicht einmal genug Zeit gegeben hat, um ihre Habseligkeiten abzuholen – ja, wir haben uns entschieden, nicht darauf zu reagieren, weil es Obama und sein Team auf Russland abgesehen haben. Ihr Ärger basierte auf der Niederlage der Kandidatin [Hillary Clinton] der Demokratischen Partei.“  (…)

S. Korea, U.S. start maritime drills against N. Korea

 

A joint US-South Korean Navy war drill report reveals, “A unit of U.S. special forces tasked with carrying out “decapitation” operations is aboard a nuclear-powered submarine in the group.”
Speculation is rife that the deployment could be what President Trump was referring to when he mentioned “the calm before the storm” in front of confused reporters two weeks ago.
Back in June it was reported that the U.S. and South Korea were training their special forces to track down and assassinate Kim Jong-un in the event of war as part of a joint operation.
North Korea has warned that it could respond to the training exercise with another ballistic missile launch to coincide with the Chinese 19th Party Congress on October 18.
Part of the wargame revolves around practicing the evacuation of noncombatant Americans out of South Korea in the event of war and other emergencies.
Assets mobilized for the joint drill include the U.S. 7th Fleet’s aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers – the USS Stethem (DDG-63) and the USS Mustin (DDG-89).
North Korea intensified its bellicose rhetoric against the United States on Sunday night, accusing Trump of being a “war merchant and strangler of peace.”
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Trump has instructed him to continue with diplomatic efforts, although Tillerson ominously added that this would be prolonged only “until the first bomb drops”.

Extreme ‘Fake-News’ Industry emerged in Syria over the past 5 years – Excellent Interview with George Galloway and Vanessa Beeley!

An entire ‘fake-news’ industry emerged over the past five years in relation to Syria. Phantom armies of „moderate rebels“ were moved around like pieces on an imaginary chess board. A secular, multi-confessional society was to be placed in the strait jacket of ISIS-type distortions of faith, and the truth would not be allowed to stand in the way. In the din of ferocious falsification, it takes real courage to stand against the prevailing noise. One of the most courageous is Vanessa Beeley, truly deserving of the title “independent journalist”, so we invited her into the Sputnik studio to help us cut through the clutter.

Bernie Sanders and his Outrageous Statements on Russia and Syria

May 17, 2017

Bernie Sanders Disagrees With Tulsi Gabbard On Assad And Syria

in news interviews, official statements, and tweets, Sanders has made it clear that he supports a political solution to ending the regime of Bashar al-Assad, who he has called “a butcher of his own people.” He has unequivocally stated that:

“Assad has got to go.”

Following the US missile strikes, Sanders released the following statement:

“As the most powerful nation on earth, the United States must work with the international community to bring peace and stability to Syria.”

So while Gabbard and Sanders may share perspectives when it comes to military intervention, their views on Assad and Syria are very different


 

unfortunately today we still have
examples of the U.S. supporting
policies that I believe will come back
to haunt us one is the ongoing Saudi war
in Yemen while we rightly condemn
Russian and Iranian support for Bashar
al-assad’s slaughter in Syria the U.S.
continues to support Saudi
Arabia’s destructive intervention in
Yemen which has killed many thousands of
civilians and created a humanitarian
crisis in one of the region’s poorest
countries such policies dramatically
undermine America’s ability to advance a
human rights agenda around the world and9
empowers authoritarian leaders who
insist that our support for those rights
and values is not serious

We developed an extremely
radical foreign policy initiative called
the Marshall Plan……
this was historically when countries won
terrible Wars ….. we ended up defeating
the brutality and barbarity of Nazi
Germany and Japanese Imperialism after
all of that the US-government
decided not to punish and
humiliate for losses think about all the
hatred all the bloodshed think about the
Holocaust and the U.S. decided
they would not revisit history and they
decided not to punish and humiliate the
losses rather we helped rebuild their
economies spending 130 billion dollars just
to reconstruct Western Europe …….
provided them support to reconstruct democratic
societies …. the result of that was an
extraordinary success today Germany the
country of the Holocaust the country of
Hitler’s dictatorship is now a strong
democracy and the economic engine of
Europe despite centuries of hostility
and again …
despite centuries of hostility there has
not been a major European war since
World War two that is an extraordinary
foreign policy success that we have
every right to be proud of..

„We saw this anti-democratic effort take place in the 2016 election right here in the United States, where we now know that the Russian government was engaged in a massive effort to undermine one of our greatest strengths: The integrity of our elections, and our faith in our own democracy.
„I found it incredible, by the way, that when the President of the United States spoke before the United Nations on Monday, he did not even mention that outrage.

„Well, I will. Today I say to Mr. Putin: we will not allow you to undermine American democracy or democracies around the world. In fact, our goal is to not only strengthen American democracy, but to work in solidarity with supporters of democracy around the globe, including in Russia. In the struggle of democracy versus authoritarianism, we intend to win.“

Mr. Sanders also called Vladimir Putin a kleptocrat.

 

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Muammar Gaddafi: „Look, everybody understands Gaddafi is a thug and murderer.“

on the Russian President Vladimir Putin. President Obama called him a “thug,”, also presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, who added „gangster“  Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan’s spokesperson: „Russia is a global menace led by a devious thug.“


 

Sanders issued the following statement after the U.S. carried out a missile strike in Syria  LINK

“In a world of vicious dictators, Syria’s Bashar Assad tops the list as a dictator who has killed hundreds of thousands of his own citizens to protect his own power and wealth. His regime’s use of chemical weapons against the men, women and children of his country, in violation of all international conventions and moral standards, makes him a war criminal.

………….
“The Trump administration must explain to the American people exactly what this military escalation in Syria is intended to achieve, and how it fits into the broader goal of a political solution, which is the only way Syria’s devastating civil war ends. Congress has a responsibility to weigh in on these issues. As the Constitution requires, the president must come to Congress to authorize any further use of force against the Assad regime.

“Further, the U.S. must work with all parties to reinforce longstanding international norms against the use of chemical weapons, to hold Russia and Syria to the 2013 deal to destroy these weapons and to see that violators are made accountable.”

No, it must be Russia! Russia! Russia!

The truth cannot be that establishment policies have lead to massive income inequality and left the working class struggling to survive and thus are to blame for ugly political manifestations– from Trump, to Brexit, to the surprising support for Germany’s far-right AFD party.  No, it must be Russia! Russia! Russia!

Xinhua Insight: Understanding China’s path in the next 5 years

BEIJING, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) — The eyes of the world will turn to China as the Communist Party of China (CPC) will hold its 19th national congress, at which the CPC will unveil new leadership and set a blueprint for national development for the next five years and beyond.

Analysts said that comprehensive, strategic and foresighted guidelines are expected to be raised at the congress. China is aiming for a „moderately prosperous society“ and a modern socialist country while moving toward the world’s center stage.

The congress comes at a critical time for the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics, under which China has witnessed an economic miracle and accomplished even impossible missions.

SOCIALISM WITH CHINESE CHARACTERISTICS

When many Western countries continue to stagnate, China has grown and remained stable. This is due to the strong leadership of the CPC and socialism with Chinese characteristics, which is markedly different from the Western system, in which multiple parties hold office in turn, often bickering on their way to power.

„Since the 12th CPC National Congress in 1982, the CPC has always held high the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics. This is what the Party has learned over the past four decades,“ said Xin Ming, a professor at the Party School of the CPC Central Committee.

China has become the world’s second-largest economy after decades of rapid economic growth. China’s GDP expanded by an average annual rate of 7.2 percent during 2013-2016, compared with 2.6-percent average global growth and the 4-percent growth of developing economies.

Chen Shuguang, a professor with the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, said that one of the major advantages of the Chinese political system is its ability to formulate long-term development plans and implement them in an effective manner.

The CPC has maintained consistency in its commitment and policy-making while adapting to changing domestic and international conditions, Chen said.

The International Monetary Fund raised Tuesday its forecast for China’s economic growth to 6.8 percent this year, reflecting the country’s stronger-than-expected economic performance and its efforts in deepening economic reform.

Under current circumstances, the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics entails pushing forward the „Four Comprehensives“ as socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new development stage, said Xin.

The „Four Comprehensives“ refers to a four-pronged strategy to create a moderately prosperous society in all respects, deepen reform, advance rule of law and strengthen Party governance.

China’s great achievements in socialism with Chinese characteristics do not only mean that socialism has gained strong vitality in China, but has also expanded the pathway to modernization for developing countries around the world, said President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission.

TWO CENTENARY GOALS

Completing the building of a moderately prosperous society by 2020 is a promise the CPC has made to the people.

Improvement of people’s livelihood has always been high on the agenda of the central authorities. The per-capita disposable income of all residents rose from 7,311 yuan (about 1,111 U.S. dollars) in 2012 to 23,821 yuan in 2016, an annual increase of 7.4 percent. The figure for the first half of 2017 rose 7.3 percent year on year.

China has lifted 700 million people out of poverty in the past 30 years. In the coming three years, another 40 million will be added to the list, meaning 20 people are lifted out of poverty each minute.

The central authorities have said that not a single family living in poverty will be left behind on the path to combating poverty.

After a moderately prosperous society is achieved by 2020, the whole Party and people of various ethnic groups nationwide will be motivated to build a modernized socialist country by 2049, the centenary of the People’s Republic of China.

„It is harder to achieve the second centenary goal than the first, as no country has ever realized modernization at the primary stage of socialism,“ Xin said, adding that China is confident and capable of achieving the goal.

STRICT PARTY GOVERNANCE

Since its 18th national congress in 2012, the CPC has shown it is serious about strict Party governance and tackling corruption. Experts said the CPC will continue its anti-corruption drive with more weight on prevention and education.

„For the next five years to come, the CPC will continue its efforts in anti-corruption while attaching equal or more importance to preventing the emergence of corruption,“ Xin said, adding that a sound political ecology will be cultivated and more attention will be given to ideological education.

In December 2012, the central authorities issued the „eight-point rules,“ requiring government officials to strictly practice frugality and clean up undesirable work styles such as formalism, bureaucratism, hedonism and extravagance. Practices such as the use of public funds to buy gifts, hold banquets and pay for holidays have since been strictly banned.

Now, the anti-graft drive has gained crushing momentum. Since 2012, the Party has investigated more than 280 senior officials, including Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai, Guo Boxiong, Xu Caihou, Sun Zhengcai and Ling Jihua.

The strict governance of the Party will always be an ongoing process, Xi said, stressing that the future of a political party or a regime is ultimately determined by whether the people are for or against it.

DIPLOMACY HIGHLIGHTING WIN-WIN COOPERATION

China will continue to actively participate in global governance reform and contribute Chinese wisdom to the world.

Xi has proposed forging a community of shared destiny for mankind, as well as establishing a new type of international relations with win-win cooperation at the core.

The vision of building a community of shared future for humanity holds that all countries, big or small, are equal in terms of their right to development and political status, making a more harmonious and equal world possible.

This proposal, together with China’s Belt and Road Initiative, was incorporated into UN Security Council resolutions.

This vision, derived from traditional Chinese culture, presents Chinese wisdom for the world, Xin said.

China’s average contribution to world growth in 2013-2016 was about 30 percent, the largest among all countries and higher than the total contribution from the United States, the eurozone and Japan.

Currently, as anti-globalization rears its head and some Western political systems suffer setbacks, China is sure to play its due role in promoting trade liberalization and economic globalization, as well as advancing global governance and multilateralism.

Kriegsverbrechen: Obama-Regierung gab zu, Uranmunition auch in Syrien eingesetzt zu haben. Krebserkrankungen und missgebildete Neugeborene jetzt auch in Syrien?

ScreenHunter 295

Obwohl die US-Regierung zunächst versichert hatte, sie werde keine Waffen mit abgereichertem Uran bei ihren Militäreinsätzen in Syrien benutzen, hat sie mittlerweile zugegeben, tausende solcher Geschosse auf syrischen Territorium eingesetzt zu haben. Das Foreign Policy Magazine berichtet:

„Major Josh Jacques, Sprecher des US Central Command (CENTCOM), sagte gegenüber der Organisation Airwars und dem Magazin Foreign Policy, dass am 16. November 2015 und 22. November 2015 insgesamt 5.265 panzerbrechende 30 mm Bomben mit abgereichertem Uran von Air Force A-10 Tragflächenflugzeugen aus eingesetzt wurden, wodurch etwa 350 Fahrzeuge in der östlichen Wüste des Landes zerstört worden seien.“

Waffenexperten nennen die Entscheidung, diese Munition in solchen Mengen gegen Ziele zu verwenden, für die sie nicht geeignet war – wie etwa Panzer -, als sonderbar

Major Josh Jacques, Sprecher des US Central Command (CENTCOM) erklärte, dass die Munition im November wegen einer „höheren Wahrscheinlichkeit der Zerstörung von Zielen“ eingesetzt wurde. Kurz nach beiden Angriffen veröffentlichte die von den USA geführte Koalition Videos, die Fahrzeuge zeigt, die durch Einschläge durch die 30-mm-Kanonen der Air Force A-10 -, aber in den Videos wird nicht angegeben, dass die Flugbesatzungen mit DU munitioniert wurden. Diese Videos wurden zusammen mit Dutzenden anderer Aufnahmen in den letzten Monaten aus den offiziellen Videokanälen entfernt.
