Holiday Tip: The Real Story of Christmas
2015 YEAR IN REVIEW
The brief this week is coming a day early because Christmas falls on a Friday this year and I have a special holiday recommendation for your Christmas enjoyment. The last briefing of every year I reserve for a big picture overview of where we stand relative to the ongoing assault on our liberties. More than any other year in history, the US has lost a tremendous amount of goodwill in the world over its falsified war against terror. The entire world seems to be waking up to the fact that Western pretensions against terror are a fraud and Russia is clearly gaining in world leadership as several beleaguered nations are now appealing to Russia for help against terror instead of the US or NATO. At home in the US the Powers That Be (PTB) who control both political parties are up against a major rebellion in Republican ranks as the clear majority of conservatives don’t trust anything the establishment media says or what Republican leaders tell them. I will also cover the continuing threat of economic instability and war.
The biggest threat to the stability of the Western world this year has been the sudden rise in refugees overflowing Europe’s borders. What people don’t see (because the news media never covers it) is that these could have been prevented from reaching Europe. Most of the refugees leaving Syria have come through Turkey, and then by boat to Greece or other parts of coastal Europe. The Turkish government obviously knew about these hundreds of thousands of desperate people as they headed for the coast. They did nothing to stop them, nor contain them. They didn’t even warn Europe of the coming onslaught. That’s because Turkey is part of the globalist plot to flood Europe with Muslims.
Contrary to what they say, stopping them is relatively easy. A simple sting operation could shut down the illegal armada of life-threatening ships ferrying people to Europe. You simple have a few government agents pose as refugees, find out which boats or are accepting refugees (at extortionary prices) and arrest the captains as they accept the money. The same tactic would stop the “coyote” guides taking illegals across the border from Mexico to the US. The Mexican government could shut down that pipeline in a month with sting operations.
The reason they don’t go after these facilitators is that these governments are willing participants in the globalist agenda. Globalists want to flood the US and Europe with illegals in order to create conflict, water down conservative voting patterns, and destroy western culture and religion.
Despite all the protests of people in the US and Europe, the PTB won’t be sending anyone back and they will only make a token effort to slow the flow. This ultimately will create the excuse for the government to crack down on anti-immigration organizations and brand them as perpetrators of hate.
The war on terror continues to exhibit evidence of government driven black operations. Both the terror attack in Paris and the mass shooting in San Bernardino were false flag operations that involved Muslim patsies to take the blame but shielding the taller Caucasian military hit-men who actually did the shooting, as I’ve documented in recent briefs.
If you are new to the briefs, your can login at worldaffairsbrief.com and click on “Latest Brief” which also takes you to the archives so you can access every brief from this one back to those from 15 years ago. Use them to fill in the evidence for things you are unfamiliar with.
The purpose of the Paris attacks was to justify French emergency powers that allow unlimited surveillance, warrantless searches and detention without cause—plus the excuse to intervene militarily in Syria. The purpose of the San Bernardino mass shooting (a state with heavy gun restrictions) was to show that even tough gun laws don’t stop mass shooting—hence the need to confiscate all assault weapons, as the NY Times and the Huffington Post demanded.
Both false flag attacks heightened the public’s resistance to the wholesale admission of Muslim refugees. But, predictably, the establishment was able to demand more tolerance notwithstanding, and flat out refused to stop the flow or send refugees back home. In almost every way, it is more humanitarian and less costly to provide refugee facilities in Muslim countries than to allow such mass migrations to enter Europe, where there will always be cultural conflict.
The biggest setback for the globalists this year was the intervention of Russia in the conflict in Syria. As I’ve documented many times in the WAB, ISIS is a creation of US and British intelligence—a black operation to give the US the excuse to get back into Syria and bring down Assad. There is no such thing as moderate Syrian rebels; they are all radicals and in the employ of Western puppet states like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar; and led by Israeli-trained Arab provocateurs. That’s why ISIS has never attacked any of the forgoing countries.
Russia was not ignorant of what the US was doing—using fomented terror to overthrow governments and create chaos. It happened in Egypt and Libya and now Syria is in the globalist crosshairs. Putin saw an opportunity here to intervene, save Syria, and embarrass the US, as well as throw a monkey wrench in the globalist agenda.
One of the globalist strategies is to get a negotiated settlement that will oust Assad through a skewed electoral process, now that Russia has successfully halted the US surrogate war against Syria. RT had an excellent exposee on the upcoming peace conference and the critical issue of “who are the so-called peaceful rebels” who are going to represent the opposition.
The 20 non-Syrian countries participating in the Vienna process will ultimately decide 1. which Syrians will speak for the opposition at future talks, and 2. which Syrians will instead be labeled ‘terrorists’ to be slaughtered on the battlefield.
The Saudis shrewdly tried to grab front-runner advantage for their favorite Syrians by hosting a highly-publicized meeting in Riyadh that cobbled together a 34-member opposition ‘turnkey solution.’ But several countries balked at some of the Riyadh-cooked opposition, which consists of groups or individuals they think should be on the ‘terrorist’ list instead of the negotiating table.
Others on the Saudi shortlist don’t appear to be ‘representative’ of anybody, let alone the ‘Syrian people.’ They include several former heads of the now widely-discredited Syrian National Coalition (SNC), once viewed by Syria’s foes as the country’s ‘legitimate’ government-in-exile.
Meanwhile, US globalists are scrambling to figure out how to deter the Russian intervention, hoping to make it too costly for the Russians to stay, as in Afghanistan. The US assigned Turkey to shoot down a Russian SU-24 fighter/attack plane specifically so they could force Russia to bring in their latest defensive missiles and electronic jamming equipment. The US needs to know what the Russian top of the line equipment is capable of. This was one way to get the Russians to expose their hand and eavesdrop firsthand on Russian operations. Putin had wanted to avoid this by putting in second line equipment, without air defenses. The shootdown force him to expose his high tech military hand.
Lots of pundits were predicting an imminent confrontation between Russia and Turkey that would quickly escalate to WWIII—Turkey being a NATO member. However, Putin has not risen to take the bait, and won’t—because he isn’t ready to take on the West.
But what Putin has done in Syria has led to a dramatic increase in Russian leadership throughout the world. The US has been embarrassed numerous times by Russia documenting that the US has not been serious about attacking ISIS—particularly the oil well heads and transport trucks that send that oil to markets (like Israel). In addition, Russia and various European journalists have documented how Turkey is the conduit for both support and export oil revenue for ISIS. Turkey being a NATO member and US ally adds to the scandal of the West supporting ISIS.
Iraq was the first to turn to Russia for help eradicating ISIS on its territory, and now several other countries including Libya, Egypt and Bulgaria have started making appeals to Russia as the US “protection racket” has been totally ineffective in stopping terrorism. The list will continue to grow as other countries tire of US pressure and control.
In the big picture sense, all of this continues to downgrade the reputation of the US as the world’s peacekeeper and increase the world’s reliance on Russia for military muscle. This is essential to allowing Russia and China to stake out the moral ground to justify an eventual attack on the West, increasingly viewed as the “bully of the world.”
However, war is not imminent. Russia and China are still in a major building program for missiles, aircraft, ships and high-tech defense systems that won’t be ready until the early to middle of the next decade. Of course, one needs to be prepared early because the Russians may be lying about their rearmament timetable (beginning to middle of next decade). They don’t necessarily have to wait until full rearmament to launch a nuclear pre-emptive strike. Also, we don’t have any inspectors that have been inside Russia’s most secret weapons/bunker underground city, Yamantau Mountain, so they could be a lot farther ahead than they are saying.
Additionally, we have no way detailed knowledge of the state of China’s weapons systems. We do know what they are trying to develop, but we know little about how much is deployed. From hypersonic weapons to stealth fighters, China is busy trying to invent, borrow or steal any advanced technology it can. Even Russia, though in a temporary alliance with China to eventually take down the West, is leery of the Chinese Dragon. Both these communist nations intend to take down the other after the West is subdued.
I continue to stand by my contention that North Korea is the likely trigger event for WWIII—not the US–Russian hostilities in the Middle East or Ukraine. The latter would only justify a conventional confrontation, and only a nuclear pre-emptive strike on American military assets would justify sufficient panic to talk people into joining a militarized global government.
The North Korean threat, in contrast, cries out for a nuclear response from all parties—not only because North Korea has nuclear weapons and will use them to protect her turf during the war, but China will come to NK’s aid.
Because of the severe disadvantages of the South Korean and US troops vs the North (50K vs 2 million men under arms), the US would be forced to use tactical nukes (which are in South Korea) to stop or blunt the attack. That could easily allow China to justify a pre-emptive strike on America in response to US “first use.” If I’m right, any invasion of the South by the North Koreans is likely to produce a nuclear exchange within a week. Watch for it.
…several key factors:
1) Neither Russia nor China intends to strike civilian targets and get labeled as war criminals. They intend to first hit only military and communications targets and then blackmail the West into submission. Remember, they want to bring the West under their own version of the NWO, not destroy the West’s engine of production and innovation.
2) The destructive nuclear first strike will be preceded by an EMP strike which will take down the entire electrical grid from anywhere from 6 weeks to six months or longer. This means you will have to deal with massive social unrest, pillaging and mass migrations out of the cities—which will collapse without electricity or government services.
