Meet Fethullah Gulen, Deep State Plotter

Since the failed coup attempt in Turkey on July 15th, the name of exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen is on everyone's lips. So who is Fethullah Gulen? Well, that depends who you ask...

As the Election Turns: Trump the Anti-Neocon, Hillary the New Darling of the Neocons

Just as the Republican convention demonized Hillary (“Lock Her Up”), so the Democrats are demonizing Donald Trump. They refuse to support any policy that he backs, even when he says something progressive.

One might think that at least Bernie’s supporters would applaud Trump’s left-wing transformation of the old conservative, pro-corporate neocon Cheney-Bush core of the Republican Party. But nobody had a single good word to say about Trump’s assertions that he would wind down confrontation with Russia, reduce military spending on the grounds that NATO is obsolete, and oppose the TPP and TTIP as well as rewrite NAFTA’s terms.

The Democrats are misrepresenting this election’s rivalry with the Republicans by attacking Trump’s anti-neocon positions. This leaves Hillary as the neocon choice.

She also has become the choice of the Koch Brothers and the Chamber of Commerce, who are shocked by Trump’s critique of the corporatist TPP and other trade agreements.
For the last half-century the Republican Party has been pro-Cold War, corporatist. And Trump has actually, is reversing that. Reversing the whole traditional platform. And that really worries the neocons.

Until his speech, the whole Republican Convention, every speaker had avoided dealing with economic policy issues. No one referred to the party platform, which isn’t very good. And it was mostly an attack on Hillary. Chants of “lock her up.” And Trump children, aimed to try to humanize him and make him look like a loving man.

But finally came Trump’s speech, and this was for the first time, policy was there. And he’s making a left run around Hillary. He appealed twice to Bernie Sanders supporters, and the two major policies that he outlined in the speech broke radically from the Republican traditional right-wing stance. And that is called destroying the party by the right wing, and Trump said he’s not destroying the party, he’s building it up and appealing to labor, and appealing to the rational interest that otherwise had been backing Bernie Sanders.

So in terms of national security, he wanted to roll back NATO spending. And he made it clear, roll back military spending. We can spend it on infrastructure, we can spend it on employing American labor. And in the speech, he said, look, we don’t need foreign military bases and foreign spending to defend our allies. We can defend them from the United States, because in today’s world, the only kind of war we’re going to have is atomic war. Nobody’s going to invade another country. We’re not going to send American troops to invade Russia, if it were to attack. So nobody’s even talking about that. So let’s be realistic.

Well, being realistic has driven other people crazy. Not only did Krugman say that Trump would, quote, actually follow a pro-Putin foreign policy at the expense of America’s allies, and he’s referring to the Ukraine, basically, and it’s at–he’s become a lobbyist for the military-industrial complex. But also, at the Washington Post you had Anne Applebaum call him explicitly the Manchurian candidate, referring to the 1962 movie, and rejecting the neocon craziness. This has just driven them nutty because they’re worried of losing the Republican Party under Trump.

In economic policy, Trump also opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the TTIP trade and corporate power grab [inaud.] with Europe to block public regulation. And this was also a major plank of Bernie Sanders’ campaign against Hillary, which Trump knows. The corporatist wings of both the Republican and the Democratic Parties fear that Trump’s opposition to NAFTA and TPP will lead the Republicans not to push through in the lame duck session after November. The whole plan has been that once the election’s over, Obama will then get all the Republicans together and will pass the Republican platform that he’s been pushing for the last eight years. The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement with Europe, and the other neoliberal policies.

And now that Trump is trying to rebuild the Republican Party, all of that is threatened. And so on the Republican side of the New York Times page you had David Brooks writing “The death of the Republican Party.” So what Trump calls the rebirth of the Republican Party, it means the death of the reactionary, conservative, corporatist, anti-labor Republican Party.

And when he wrote this, quote, Trump is decimating the things Republicans stood for: NATO, entitlement reform, in other words winding back Social Security, and support of the corporatist Trans-Pacific Partnership. So it’s almost hilarious to see what happens. And Trump also has reversed the traditional Republican fiscal responsibility austerity policy, that not a word about balanced budgets anymore. And he said he was going to run at policy to employ American labor and put it back to work on infrastructure. Again, he’s made a left runaround Hillary. He says he wants to reinstate Glass-Steagall, whereas the Clintons were the people that got rid of it.

And this may be for show, simply to brand Hillary as Wall Street’s candidate. But it also seems to actually be an attack on Wall Street. And Trump’s genius was to turn around all the attacks on him as being a shady businessman. He said, look, nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it. Now, what that means, basically, as a businessman, he knows the fine print by which they’ve been screwing the people. So only someone like him knows how to fight against Wall Street. After all, he’s been screwing the Wall Street banks for years [inaud.]. And he can now fight for the population fighting against Wall Street, just as he’s been able to stiff the banks.
So this is really the class war. And it’s the class war of Wall Street and the corporate sector of the Democratic side against Trump on the populist side. And who knows whether he really means what he says when he says he’s for the workers and he wants to rebuild the cities, put labor back to work. And when he says he’s for the blacks and Hispanics have to get jobs just like white people, maybe he’s telling the truth, because that certainly is the way that the country can be rebuilt in a positive way.

And the interesting thing is that all he gets from the Democrats is denunciations.

A Response to 'Crisis on High' - A Rational Interpretation of the Climate Change in China Story Appearing on the ABC Lateline Program

Dear Lateline,

There are a number of significant problems with your story Crisis on High that dealt with Climate Change (Global Warming) in the mountainous "Third Pole" region on the Chinese side of the Tibetan Plateau.

The story points out that glaciers have disappeared or retreated in the last 50 years and that temperatures have increased at a greater rate than the rest of China.

In regard to the first point, according to Global Temperature records, the 1960s (50 years previously) was a time of Global Cooling. From the 1940s to the late 70s there was a 30 year period of cooling. If one measured the glacial ice extent at a cooling maximum and compared it to a warmer period you would expect a huge difference.

Furthermore, in the interests of making a fair assessment of this 50 year glacial ice loss, we must consider the 1930s which were the hottest years for the Northern Hemisphere during the 20th Century (if we use US temperature records as a guide). The fact is we do not have data from the Chinese covering this hot period for the Tibetan Plateau region.

Compared to the 1930s, how much more ice has been lost ?

I suspect that the particle contamination (dust and soot) cited in the story, has contributed to a further loss of ice than experienced in the 1930s. The darkened glaciers are now absorbing more heat and melting faster then they otherwise would. The Chinese estimated that 50% of the ice loss was due to this particle contamination.

So what would the glaciers look like today if not for the contamination? How would they compare to the 1930s? Would the melting be of a similar extent? We don't actually know.

This second point raised in the story dealt with the fact that the temperatures in the mountains have increased at a faster rate than elsewhere in China. So why should the temperatures in the mountains be increasing at a faster rate than the rest of the country?

The answer is very simple - it is also due to the particle (dust and soot) pollution that, as stated previously, has contributed to an estimated 50% of the ice loss. Rather than having clean, sun-reflecting ice the glaciers are now slightly darked and therefore absorb more heat from the sun.

Many of the glaciers have disappeared or retraced to leave open, heat-absorbing ground. The lack of ice would necessarily mean an increase in temperatures.

In other areas of China, where there is no ice, the temperatures should increase pretty much uniformly, except of course due to urbanisation causing 'Heat Island Effects.'

The loss of water or ice is important. Consider the Lake District in the UK. In the Northern Hemisphere this latitude is quite habitable (around 50 degrees North). However, on the same latitude in the Southern Hemisphere, in Argentina, the environment is much cooler and inhospitable. The difference is due to the fact that the southern region of our planet has a lot more water, that tends to keep temperatures lower, whilst the northern portion of our planet has a lot of land mass then tends to increase temperatures.

The loss of ice in the Tibetan Plateau has caused a rise in temperature out of proportion to the rest of China.

The fact that soot and dust has caused at least half the ice loss and contributed to the temperature increase begs the question as to how great an impact CO2 increase is having by itself. And because both the Arctic Sea Ice and the Greenland Ice sheet are in a period of growth, one would assume that the CO2 increase is not having as significant effect as claimed by many experts (since real world observations trump hypotheticals). The experts repeatedly predicted that there would be no summer Ice in the Arctic at this time (by 2016) and yet it is now growing compared to recent years.

Admittedly the Earth has heated over the last few decades, and over the last century since the end of the Little Ice Age. The question raised here is the extent of our influence on natural climate cycles and how we must contend with missing data or false assumptions while considering other explanations for what is happening outside of a solely anthropogenic global warming model.

Hillary Clinton Is A Threat To All Of Humanity

Hillary Rodham Clinton is a Wall Street-backed warmonger whose potential election as President of the United States this November poses an existential threat not just to Americans but to all of humanity.

While Secretary of State, Hillary was supporting terrorist forces in Syria. US intelligence knew the leading fighting groups were all extremists, while politicians were denying this truth. Hillary Clinton, who had access to the intelligence, is therefore an out-and-out terrorist supporter among her other crimes.

Epilogue to "RFK Must Die": Pruszynski Recording Reveals Second Gun

An update to Shane O'Sullivan's "RFK Must Die" documentary featuring new audio recording evidence of a second gunman firing the shot that killed Bobby Kennedy [as premiered on the Documentary Channel, October 13, 2008]. This previously unknown audio tape, only recently uncovered, reveals that Sirhan Sirhan did not act alone in the June 1968 assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

The RFK case is not only about this sound recording (or for that matter the crime scene pictures with more wounds and bullet holes than could be attributed to a single gun) but also the autopsy that showed RFK was fatally shot in the back at point blank range - within one inch.

The convicted 'killer', Sirhah Sirhan, shot at RFK from the front, and was many feet away (too far to cause the powder burns on RFK's clothing). The security guard behind RFK, who had the same calibre firearm is the only person who could have caused these injuries - and he lied about his gun. None of this evidence was tested in court because Sirhan's lawyers pleaded guilty in order to (supposedly) avoid a death penalty sentence. Political assassination is always an option in the US if electronic vote fraud cannot effectively be used.

With Friends Like Brussels, Who Needs Enemies? EU to Fine Greece for Saving Ship Builders

BRUSSELS bureaucrats are set to fine impoverished Greece a million euros every month in revenge for its Government stepping in to save ship builders’ jobs.

Out of touch eurocrats are seeking a court order for a massive financial crackdown on the struggling country, which has been driven into third world poverty by EU policies.

They want to impose a six million euro upfront penalty on Greece’s cash-strapped government, to be followed by a daily levy of 34,974 euros.

The row has erupted because Greek ministers used taxpayers money to save the Hellenic Shipyards company in 2008, guaranteeing the jobs of more than a thousand workers.

The EU dictatorship.

Newsbud Demands Public Retraction from NBC for Unethical False Reporting

On July 15, 2016, as an attempted coup unfolded in Turkey, a report began to circulate widely that Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had fled the country by air and was requesting asylum in Germany. The apparent origin of this report was NBC News. A tweet has also been cited in many articles from MSNBC Segment Producer, Kyle Griffin. Griffin’s tweet stated, “senior US military source tells NBC News that Erdogan, refused landing rights in Istanbul, is reported to be seeking asylum in Germany.” This report was presented as factual, and was reported on by many different media outlets. Despite an intense public outcry, to date there has been no explanation, retraction or apology for it from NBC, MSNBC, or Kyle Griffin. We at Newsbud believe it is highly irresponsible and harmful to present and circulate a false report. Further, the public has the right to know how its mainstream news outlets such as NBC are being directly used by senior government Psyop actors to concoct and disseminate strategic false information. In this case, who is this Senior US Military Official cited as NBC’s source for this proven-false Erdogan Asylum story?
