In the seventieth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, and Moskovskiy Komsomolets. He discusses the catastrophic political crisis in Ukraine and the possibility of the collapse of the present government structures brought about by severe infighting among various oligarchic clans. In addition, he focuses on the recent changes in the Russian military, including the increase of the numbers of troops and weapons and the likely ban on the use of smart phones.
In this Newsbud report, we will examine what has been referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s shadow army, or Putin’s ghost soldiers, who played a significant role in the Ukraine conflict. Downing a Ukrainian military plane full of paratroopers, carrying out combat operations and conducting assassinations. This shadow army is currently on the ground inside Syria, but the Russian government is denying any involvement. The full report is exclusively available for members at Newsbud.com nonmembers can watch it now at Newsbud Vimeo on Demand.
The second longest bull market in stocks was brutally interrupted in early February 2018 with some serious volatility, including the largest single day point drop in the history of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. I mean, why would something like that happen if the economy is otherwise doing so well, investors are so clearly exuberant, unemployment is so very, very low, and the Fed, Treasury and President Trump are guiding things along so firmly? Tongue firmly in cheek…
A new draft for managing mass migration was introduced by the United Nations about a month ago and is expected to be adopted by most of its member states later this year. The draft is called ''global compact for migration'', and if you think it's about restricting the phenomenon, you are wrong. Quite the opposite.
It’s Chinese New Year and time for our special entertainment edition of China Watch. We document the atrocities at the CCTV New Year’s Gala! Racism! Outrage! And the back story on why China went blackface to show its love for Africa!
On Friday, 02 February 2018, the much hyped Nunes Memo was finally released (Ward & Aleem, 2018). Partisan politics took centre stage as the Democrats and Republicans marched out some of their respective party’s best deceivers to make their case to the American people. Watching it was akin to watching some weird, perverse Kabuki performance.
According to Donald Trump and his partisans, Democrats—Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats in Congress, the liberal media—are the Deep State. They also selectively include some Republicans, those who don’t support Trump. This characterization serves to hide the real Deep State—the bankers, transnational corporatists, their foundations, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the intelligence community, and the military industrial and surveillance complex.
In the sixty-ninth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Vedomosti, and Komsomolskaya Pravda Moscow Edition. He examines the possible causes of the crash of the Russian passenger plane AN-148. Was the crash due to bad weather, technical malfunction, human error, or terrorism?

On February 16, the US Justice Department indicted more than a dozen Russian nationals for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign. It singled out a Russian company, the Internet Research Agency (also known as Glavset) based in Saint Petersburg, which is said to be responsible for influence operations on behalf of the Russian government.
American diplomacy wipes out at the 2018 Winter Olympics! The Korean unified team is on parade as Mike Pence sits and stews. And American ignorance on parade as so-called experts struggle with the baffling hostility between Japan and South Korea! China Watch offers an exclusive look at the injustice at the heart of the Japan-South Korean relationship, and America’s ongoing collusion with Tokyo. China Watch also asks Where’s Shinzo? Did Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sit or stand during the entry of the Korean unified team at the Olympic opening ceremony? Did he do both?
The U.S. war industry is out of control. It has been since 1945. It finances political campaigns, thereby purchasing loyalty from elected officials. It funds the D.C. think tanks, thereby controlling the narrative and ensuring new ‘threats’ are always hyped. It advertises on national media, thereby forestalling the slim chance a corporate journalist might bravely challenge the need for endless war. It is up to an educated citizenry to remedy this situation.
The U.S. Supreme Court will not save us. The Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect “we the people” against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.
This week on The Geopolitical Report, we cover United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley’s demand nations responsible for the use of chemical weapons be held to account following an alleged chemical attack outside of Damascus, Syria. Secretary of State James Mattis reminded the al-Assad government of President Trump’s illegal attack last April on a Syrian airbase in response to an unverified chemical attack. Pressed on the issue, Mattis admitted he hasn’t seen direct evidence. He cited reports by unnamed NGOs, a reference to the White Helmets.
In the sixty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Kommersant, and Komsomolskaya Pravda. He discusses the context of the recent shooting of the Russian military plane SU-25 over Idlib as it was presented in the Russian press, addressing the question of who is afraid of peace in Syria. In addition, he examines increasing tensions between Russia and Japan regarding the militarization of the Kuril Islands.
A series of recent escalations marks the bloodiest week in many years in Syria, as tensions and the possibility for further escalation runs high. Plus the hottest stories of the week.

The split between the Republic of Korea on one side, and the United States and Japan on the other, has become glaringly apparent at the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. ROK President Moon Jae in has broken with Donald Trump and Shinzo Abe in pursuing direct outreach to the DPRK—the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a.k.a. North Korea. The US and Japan have responded with snubs, sitdowns, and calls for engagement to be abandoned after the Olympics and a return to an exclusive policy of harsh sanctions and coercion.
The history of Wall Street and Anglo-American finance in China is one that is rarely discussed in western media or even academia, whereas knowing it would explain much about both China’s stunning economic rise over the past 70 years, as well as certainly seemingly rising tensions between China and the US today. It’s hard to tell if there is genuine tension and enmity because of credible rivalry status between the US and China, or if everything is proceeding according to wider, deeper, much longer-term planning based on desired, durable and thus political coordination. Large US, UK and EU inv
Inside sources expose a small group of high-level bureaucrats within the State Department and the CIA that have been sabotaging the Trump-Pence White House directive on efforts for the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson, who has been jailed in Turkey due to his alleged connection to Gulen Network's failed coup attempt in Turkey in 2016.

A senior-level Newsbud source currently with the State Department provided the following information on the condition of anonymity:
The FBI has thrown its weight behind the campaign to discredit alternative media as peddlers of Russian influence and disinformation.
Nukes are coming back to Asia! America’s Nuclear Posture Review is out, and it offers a blueprint for a nuclear war with China. China’s not gonna like it, you’re not gonna like it, but it’s the Pentagon’s miracle cure for declining US conventional strength in Asia.
On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we examine the concerted effort by the establishment to demonize and eventually eliminate alternative media. Since the election and the debunked hysterical claim Russia meddled in the election and helped Trump defeat Clinton, the government has leaned heavily on social media platforms to put an end to supposed fake news generated by phantom Russian operatives and bots. The real target is not Russia, but non-establishment media in general.
Corporations rule the U.S. government. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the Pentagon, where corporate contractors have completely seized the basic functions of what were once inherently governmental occupations: Preparation for war and fighting war. Killing for state purposes is now in corporate hands.
Breaking news coming out of Syria, as a Russian war plane was shot down in the Idlib province of northwest Syria. The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the Su-25 was shot down and stated that the pilot ejected safely, but was killed fighting “terrorists”.

In the sixty-seventh edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, and Sovietskaya Rossiya. He discusses the defeat of the Gladio C operatives in Prague and the re-election of Vladimir Putin’s ally Milos Zeman as the president of the Czech Republic. He also covers the controversy around the U.S. Senate ‘Kremlin Report’ and the U.S. Treasure’s so-called ‘Putin’s list’ of the senior Russian government officials and oligarchs and how Russia has reacted to it.
Americans must be gluttons for punishment. If not, then what is their rationale for re-electing the same cast of misfits and losers to office each election cycle? Regardless of the party in power, Republican or Democrat, nothing in Washington ever seems to change. Admittedly, there are a handful of new names and faces that enter the political arena under the guise of accountability and change.
It is widely believed throughout the diplomatic global community that the use of UN 'mediators' is often a very effective, sometimes necessary tool in order to resolve a dispute between two parties, usually between two countries.
During his State of the Union address, President Trump said he will keep the Guantánamo Bay detention camp in Cuba open. He also promised to fill it up with a raft of new abductees.
In this special episode, China Watch tells the story that Errol Morris missed in his acclaimed documentary Wormwood. The film has focused attention on the mysteries surrounding the death of government scientist Frank Olson. Olson fell 13 stories to his death from a New York hotel window in 1953. He died after—but possibly not because—he was dosed with LSD by the CIA. Why Frank Olson died—and maybe why he had to die—leads us to one of the most persistent controversies of Cold War America.
We’ve all been there before. You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach. You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.
Evidence is beginning to emerge showing the recent massive drone attack on Russia’s Khmeimim Airbase in the Syrian province of Latakia and a similar attack on its maritime facility located in Tartus is the work of the CIA. Russia insists it is impossible to develop such drones in an improvised manner. They were developed and operated by experts with special skills acquired in countries that produce and apply systems with UAVs. Of particular interest is the fact a U.S.
In the sixty-sixth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Kommersant, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, RBK, and Parlamentskaya Gazeta. He discusses the rising tensions in the Donbas related to the new legislation passed by the Ukrainian Parliament. In addition, he examines the Russian views of the Turkish intervention against the Kurds in Syria. Lastly, he discusses Russia’s participation in this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos and the Russian attitude toward bitcoin and other crypto-currencies.

Newsbud Founder and Editor Sibel Edmonds is joined by Investigative Journalist Whitney Webb to discuss Webb’s recent three-part investigative report exposing billionaire founder of the Intercept- Pierre Omidyar. Webb delves deep into Omidyar’s long-ongoing multi-billion dollar partnership with government agencies, including the CIA and NSA, questionable coincidences and ties between Omidyar-Snowden, Glenn Greenwald’s hushed contract and arrangements with Omidyar to privatize Snowden’s 500+K page leak, Freedom of Press Foundation’s betrayal of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, and much more.
President Donald Trump and his generals are ready to use tactical nuclear weapons against North Korea and its hereditary leader, Kim Jung-un.
In this edition of a Different View with F William Engdahl he goes into the real issues on the new Pentagon Defense Strategy document that was widely missed by mainstream media, namely how the Pentagon is now making economic rivals into its main "enemy image," and no longer focusing on the War on Terror. He discusses what in fact this means and how it represents a dangerous shift in US military priorities.

This week on China Watch, America aches for its manhood measuring moment in Asia; but will China oblige? Pacific Command’s Admiral Harry Harris is promising big doings in the Indo-Pacific—you know, that region that isn’t supposed to have China in it—in 2018. Will the Chinese rise to Admiral Harris’s bait prematurely…or will the PRC continues to dodge direct confrontation until it has built its way to military dominance?
Chinese government officials recently informed Washington of intentions to ‘slow’ or outright ‘halt’ state purchases of US Treasury bonds. The economic realities underlying Beijing’s report caused noticeable effects on the bond and stock markets. Wider geopolitical considerations were certainly felt among analysts, government officials and within industry. With the Trump Administration’s looming trade war against China sitting alongside threats posed to Chinese allies North Korea and Iran, China’s palpable concerns – and China’s perceived need for putting its largest trade partner on notice
In this episode of Probable Cause Newsbud’s founder and editor Sibel Edmonds is joined by attorney and rancher Todd Macfarlane. Edmonds and Macfarlane discuss the current war that is being waged against small, independent ranchers and farmers by the U.S. government and the mega corporations, with specific focus on the case of Dwight and Steven Hammond, who were imprisoned on trumped up charges, and the current petition to get them released from prison.
In February, Army installations across the United States will organize mobilization centers for rapid overseas deployment. The move will resemble the activity of similar task forces in Syria and Iraq. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we examine Trump’s rhetoric on North Korea that underscores the move for war we are now witnessing with military exercises and preparation for mobilization.
Amid the latest turmoil in Iran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called French President Emmanuel Macron on January 2th to urge him to take immediate action against an exiled Iranian terrorist organization with a branch in Paris, which as he said, incites violent demonstrations in the country.

He discusses the prospects of the Russian oil industry. In addition, he examines the current situation in Moldova, where Gladio C operations are increasingly pushing for the dangerous change of state borders, and which he thinks is on the way to becoming another Eastern European proxy warzone between NATO and Russia.

The Trump administration has finally clarified its stance on Syria—it plans to occupy portions of the country and remove its elected leader, Bashar al-Assad. The former reason is, of course, predicated on the phony Islamic State threat, while the latter is based on the threadbare excuse the United States must prevent al-Assad from butchering his own people and, after all, Syrians deserve democracy American-style, even if the price is 500,000 dead men, women, and children.
Mid-November, 2017 – The Daily Beast ran an exclusive report detailing how the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) was set to break ties with WikiLeaks amidst concerns among the foundation’s board, which includes such well-known figures as Daniel Ellsberg, Edward Snowden, Laura Poitras, John Cusack and Glenn Greenwald, among others.

The ongoing international controversy over the widely-used glyphosate-based weed-killer Roundup and similar herbicides has largely been diverted as a misleading debate on whether glyphosate itself, the largest component of Monsanto’s Roundup, is carcinogenic in recommended doses.
