False Flag Terrorism: Myth and Reality 

1 Share

Sunday night’s appalling atrocity in Las Vegas, where an apparently lone gunman holed up in the Mandalay Bay hotel shot more than 500 people – killing 59 of them at present count – has taken over the airwaves and social media. Rightly so, since this is the deadliest mass shooting incident in recent American history.

Questions abound regarding Stephen Paddock, the shooter, who’s dead (reportedly by his own hand) and therefore unavailable to explain what motivated him to commit such an awful crime. It’s a rare thing for an affluent older white man – he was 64 and devoted to gambling in his retirement from accountancy – without a criminal record to assemble a vast arsenal, then unleash it on hundreds of people he’d never met.

It may be some time before a motive can be detected in this strange and sinister case. The claim of the Islamic State that Paddock was their “soldier” has been dismissed by U.S. intelligence as a desperate fantasy by the ailing terror group, eager to cash in on the Las Vegas horror. Indeed, we may never know exactly what propelled Paddock into this horrific act.

In the absence of reliable information, the usual charlatans have jumped into the fray, offering fact-free speculation. Per sordid custom, this ghoulish gang is led by Alex Jones, the InfoWars doyen, who proffered his customary insta-explanation for the crime: False Flag!

In other words, nothing in Las Vegas is as it seems. Jones offered a tale that was convoluted even for him: Paddock was merely a front for the “Deep State” in Washington, the Islamic State, and “the literal grandchildren of the folks that financed the Bolshevik Revolution out of New York and London” (translation: Jews).

This is his shtick, and Jones falls back on False Flags to explain nearly everything. He became notorious for employing it after the 2012 school horror in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, which left 20 little kids murdered. Egged on by his instance that the entire incident was a hoax, Jones’ demented fans have tortured grieving parents for years.

This vile spectacle has pushed the False Flag idea beyond the pale, which is unfortunate because they really do exist among spies and terrorists. Recruiting agents and conducting espionage operations while pretending to be somebody else happens every day in the real world. Terrorists, too, have been known to kill while masquerading as another party, for political effect.

Polite people don’t like to talk about this, of course, and their politesse has infected our discourse about such important matters, to its detriment. Now, thanks to Alex Jones, to mention False Flags in any way is to self-brand as a lunatic.

Germany’s Trade Surplus Creates Tension With the Trump Administration | Economic Intelligence

1 Share

When an irresistible force meets an immovable object, the results are generally not pretty. For this reason, one has to worry about Germany’s outsized trade surplus, which appears to be putting that country on a collision course with the Trump administration.

Being elected on the platform that other countries have been taking advantage of the U.S. in the area of international trade, President Donald Trump seems to be moving irresistibly towards doing something about other countries’ large trade surpluses. Being sure that its country’s large trade surplus is a sign of virtue rather than constituting any problem, the German government is immovable about any notion of taking policy measures to help reduce the size of that surplus.

At the heart of the trade tensions between the U.S. and Germany is the fact that, at around $300 billion, Germany now has the world’s largest external current account surplus. At over 8 percent of GDP, Germany’s external current account surplus is approximately three times the size of that of China, which has for long been the main recipient of U.S. criticism about unfair trade practices.

U.S. concern about Germany’s large external current account surplus predates Trump becoming president. Already in April 2016, in its semi-annual currency report to Congress, the U.S. Treasury flagged that the German external surplus was problematic. It did so by placing Germany, along with China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, on a special monitoring list. It warned that these countries faced extra scrutiny and potential retaliation by Washington as a result of concerns over their growing trade imbalances with the U.S.

Exchange Rate Headaches

The dollar’s depreciation and the euro’s appreciation are causing trouble for Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi.


Since assuming office, Trump has made abundantly clear his displeasure with Germany’s large trade surplus, which he considers to be totally unacceptable in that it unfairly disadvantages U.S. workers. In that context, his administration has charged that Germany has taken advantage of its Euro membership to gain an unfair competitive advantage. By adopting the Euro as its currency, which weak economic performers like Greece, Italy and Portugal also use, Germany has enjoyed the benefits of a very much weaker currency than it would have had if it had maintained the Deutsche Mark.

The German government’s reaction to the Trump administration’s charges of unfair trade practices is generally one of indignation and incomprehension. It insists that a large trade surplus is not a policy objective, but rather the result of Germany’s orderly budget policies and its aging population’s high propensity to save. Why, they ask, should Germany be penalized for following sensible economic policies?

The German government is also quick to point out that even if it wanted to do something to address its large trade surplus, it is politically constrained from doing so. Since joining the Euro in 1999, it has not been a German central bank that influences the German exchange rate, but rather the independent European Central Bank that does so. Germany might have two seats on the ECB’s board, but it is only one of 19 countries that are represented on that board, which puts it in a distinct minority.

The Dollar Is in Trouble

U.S. currency should be strong, but Trump’s presidency may be causing investors to sour.


Similarly, to the repeated entreaties by the International Monetary Fund that Germany should use the fiscal space that it has to help reduce trade imbalances both in Europe and the rest of the world, the German government responds that this is no longer constitutionally possible. In 2009, the German parliament overwhelmingly approved a balanced budget amendment or “debt brake.” According to that debt brake, from 2016 onwards, the German government has been constitutionally precluded from running a structural budget deficit that exceeds 0.35 percent of GDP.

One has to fear that the German government is grossly underestimating how politically important it is to the Trump administration to deliver on the president’s election promises to bring jobs back to America. One also has to worry that should the German government remain intransigent about doing anything to address its country’s large trade surplus, Trump will use his executive authority to follow through on his threats to introduce far-reaching trade restriction to meet his trade balance objectives.

An intensification of trade restrictions is the last thing that the world economy needs; it could very well invite retaliation that could lead to a global trade war. For this reason, one must hope that cooler heads prevail in both Berlin and Washington to find a cooperative way to deal with today’s global trade imbalances. The basis for such an approach might be to have Washington commit to more disciplined budget policies in return for Berlin committing to finding a way to use the fiscal space that it now enjoys to pursue a more expansionary fiscal policy.

Hearing in the Bundestag: Maaßen calls for more technical possibilities – politics

1 Share

With reference to the security security situation, Hans-Georg Maaßen, the President of theConstitution, calls for more powers for the news services. “Security has its price, and the price is not only paid in euros,”. Only the services could detect and prevent terrorist attacks in advance. “We need a full set of tools with which we are able to solve the problems of today,” said Maaßen. “It can not be that we are dependent on our partners.”

Maaßen said he had “a few wishes just in the technical area”. The protection of the constitution needs access to messenger services like WhatsApp or telegram. He would also like to know who is looking at decapitation videos in Germany, which are spread over a foreign server, in order to be able to compare this information with files of suspicious extremists and to assess their dangerousness better.

The threat of cyber attacks is growing

The President of the Constitutional Defense argued that the security situation is now much more complex than in the case of the terror series 40 years ago in the so-called Deutscher Herbst. Currently there are 10,300 Salafists in Germany as well as more than 1800 persons in the Islamic terrorist spectrum. In addition, there was an increase in violent right- and left-wing extremism as well as a growing threat of cyber-attacks . “If I were a business man, I could say: in all our business areas, it is booming,” said Maaßen. “Unfortunately this is not a positive message.”

The President of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND), Bruno Kahl, said that the intelligence services are currently faced with immense challenges. The German services would have to keep pace with the technical development. “Otherwise the digital revolution benefits only those from whom we are supposed to protect our country.”

Maaßen: No cyber attacks before the Bundestagswahl

The intelligence chiefs also spoke about cyber attacks in the run-up to the Bundestag election. Hans-Georg Maaßen, President of the Constitution, confirmed that the feared attacks and disinformation campaigns had been suspended. Before the members of the Intelligence Control Board, Maaßen expressed the assumption that such methods had not been used “because the political costs are simply too high.” After the recent elections in the US and France, Russian disinformation campaigns had become so clear that this time, such measures were intentionally abandoned.

Maaßen had warned against foreign influence in the run-up to the election. Andrej Hunko, a member of the Left, said: “Contrary to the propaganda of German secret services, there were no cyber attacks on the Bundestag elections.” He referred to the answer given by the Ministry of the Interior to his parliamentary question. It lists only attack attempts on parties and part-time foundations, which have already taken months. The ministry calls the attacks “possible preparations for attempts to influence the Bundestag election”. Hunko, on the other hand, considers this presumed connection to be “coffee beverages”. ( dpa )

The U.S. Air Force is 24 Percent Short of the Fighters it Needs

Dakota WoodSecurity,

Our military is minimally ready, rapidly aging, and has so shrunk in size that even senior military leaders question its ability to adequately meet its national security obligations.

Arguably the federal governments first obligation to Americans is to keep us safe from foreign attack and to defend our vital national interests wherever they are threatened.

Alarmingly, our government is on the verge of failing in this core responsibility. Our military is minimally ready, rapidly aging, and has so shrunk in size that even senior military leaders question its ability to adequately meet its national security obligations.

This is a disservice to Americans in general and, most especially, to those who are tasked with carrying out the duty of protecting our nation.

Two weeks ago, voicing his concerns about the militarys condition and the impact that restricted funding is having on Americas security, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was quite blunt:

[N]othing has done more damage to the readiness of our armed forces than the continuing resolutions that stop us from taking initiative, than the lack of budgetary predictability. I bring this up because if we dont get budgetary predictability, if we dont remove the defense caps, then were questioning whether or not America has the ability to survive. Its that simple.

Gen. Daniel B. Allyn, until recently the vice chief of staff of the Army, has testified that only one-third of our BCTs [brigade combat teams], one-fourth of our combat aviation brigades, and half of our division headquarters are considered ready.

RecommendedAmerica Can’t Shoot Down a North Korean Nuke

Currently, of the Armys 31 brigade combat teams only three would be available to immediately deploy to a conflict.

The Air Force is 24 percent short of the fighters it needs, and is short 1,000 pilots and over 3,000 maintainers. Only four of its 32 combat-coded squadrons are ready to execute all wartime missions.

RecommendedThe Case for War with North Korea

Prior to 1991, the Air Force purchased more than 500 aircraft a year to offset platforms aging out of its inventory. Since then, it has averaged fewer than 100 per year.

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Stands to Meet the Trumps: I Will Never Lie Down to Shake the Presidents Hand

Las Vegas shooting survivor Thomas Gunderson was shot in the leg during Sunday night’s attack, but he still stood to greet the president and first lady when they visited him at the hospital.President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Last Vegas on Wednesday to speak with doctors, law enforcement officers, first responders, and survivors of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.With over 500 people injured in the attack, the Trumps visited one of the hospitals where survivors are recovering. Gunderson was one of the many people who sustained injuries from being shot and spoke with the president and first lady during their trip.

Gunderson, despite being shot in the leg, stood when he shook the Trumps’ hands and later posted a video of the interaction to his Facebook page.

“I will never lie down when the president of this great country comes to shake my hand!” Gunderson wrote on Facebook. “There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president, and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my president the respect he deserves!”

The video went viral almost instantly, the Hill reported.

“Don’t get up,” Melanie Trump said after entering the hospital room. “Are you OK?”

“Hey, this guy looks tough to me,” President Trump said as he entered Gunderson’s room after the first lady.

Gunderson was not the only Las Vegas shooting survivor who found the president’s trip motivational. One woman told reporters that his visit was “comforting,” adding, “He wasn’t who we see on social media.”

Teen Las Vegas shooting victim found President Trump’s visit “comforting,” telling reporters, “he wasn’t who we see on social media.”

NYT Falsely Reports Trump Admin Blocked Puerto Ricans From Using Food Stamps for Hot Meals

TheNew York Times falsely reported earlier this week that the Trump administration was blocking food stamp recipients in hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico from using the federal subsistence to eat hot meals.On Tuesday, theTimes reportedPuerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló complained, “the federal government had denied a request to allow hurricane victims in Puerto Rico who use food stamps to redeem them at fast-food restaurants and other places that serve prepared hot meals.””He [Rosselló ] said he was pursuing the issue with federal officials and was hoping the waiver would come soon,” the Times reported.

But after the piece had already been up for 24 hours, it was updated to admit the claim was inaccurate.

Though Mr. Rosselló said on Tuesday that the federal government had denied a request to allow hurricane victims in Puerto Rico to use food stamps at fast-food restaurants and other places that serve prepared hot meals, officials at the Department of Agriculture, which oversees the federal nutrition program, said they sent a letter to Puerto Rico on Sept. 30 approving a waiver that would allow food-stamp recipients to use their benefits to buy hot food. The agency granted similar waivers following hurricanes in Texas and Florida.

A correction beneath the piece now acknowledges the error: “Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article misstated the status of a request from Gov. Ricardo Rosselló that the federal government grant a waiver permitting hurricane victims in Puerto Rico to use food stamps at fast-food restaurants.”

“The Department of Agriculture granted the waiver on Sept. 30; it was not still pending on Tuesday,” the correction reads.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue called attention to the correction on Twitter.
