Without a doubt, this collapse is coming, but will it come tomorrow? China has a variety of alternatives, and we can only wait and see. The choice is theirs – thank God! ~J

Trump’s Tax Plan is being ‘egregiously’ misrepresented!!!
. . . says a Reader who has researched the info. Please take the time to read it! (I keep praying that if Trump is to be President — and there is much water that will go under the bridge between now and then, he will be willing to deal with the truth openly and honestly!) . . .
Just a heads-up, Jean: I was reading your postings on the Trump Plan for a “Great America” and discovered that his “tax plan” is being egregiously misrepresented in the lame stream media. They keep telling everyone that he’s (A) either giving the rich a 1 Trillion Dollar tax break over the next 10 years or (B) his tax breaks for the rich will increase the national debt by 11 + Trillion Dollars over the next 10 years.
Well, I’ve read his stated tax plan here: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/tax-reform
Nothing could be further from the truth. If you will study it, you’ll find out that what he’s doing is lowering the tax rate across the board but especially for the poor, working class, and middle class. He then takes all of the loopholes out of the tax code compelling the top 10% to pay their “fair share.” Today, the bottom 75% pay most of the taxes that make up federal revenues. Under Trump’s plan, the tax burden is spread across the top 10% but offers them “Tax Haven” status to get them to move their money back into the U.S. The poor won’t pay any taxes and the working class and middle class have their taxes cut in half. There won’t be anymore “Inheritance Tax” and the code will be simplified so that the “marriage penalty” is eliminated and the bottom 75% have more “deductions” than the top 10%. His plan demonstrates how these reforms will actually generate more revenue over the long run.
His philosophy is that of a “supply-sider”…let everyone keep more of their money and do things to encourage people to save their money. An interesting point of view, I think you’ll agree. The fact that the lame stream media is lying about what his tax program actually states is an indication that the Oligarchy of the Bush/Royals/Rothschilds don’t want him to be in office. These people are “neo-feudalists” and want the little people to pay for everything. Trump is thinking like a Renaissance Merchant—let everyone make more money so everyone can make more money! That’s why the Pope went after the Medici family way back when. They were creating too much wealth which was giving the little guy too many ideas. Of course, that’s why historians call it the “Renaissance!”

LUBBOCK, Tex. — Although just about any American you ask can name who Hollywood Celebs, like Brad Pitt, are married to and which TV show Snooky is on, they don’t know much else about their country or the history of their country because they have been intentional dumbed-down.
When does too much fluoride in the tap water become too much?

The Hierarchy has set up numerous stupid sites filled completely with the typical big lies, false-narratives and propaganda that their Controlled major Mass media (CMMM) Talking heads usually broadcast. . .
The problem with this limited hangout approach is that in most cases it fails, because most web users have become so sophisticated in their knowledge base that they take the truth nuggets and reject the payloads, because they already have gained too much knowledge to be so easily duped anymore.
The deputy head of Russia’s Upper House committee for defense and security Frants Klintsevich commented on the frenzy over the latest incidents in Baltic airspace, saying the fizzbuzz has a clear goal – to put a smokescreen for NATO plans to deploy additional troops in Eastern Europe.
“It is now completely clear why the United States needed a hype around the interception of the US spy plane over the Baltic Sea and the incident with the destroyer Donald Cook.
It was to prepare the information space for deploying four additional NATO battalions to the Baltic region […] On the tip from US, the North Atlantic alliance continues its strategy of encircling Russia,” Klintsevich said, as quoted by his press service. He also noted that the turmoil began immediately after the latest Russia-NATO Council meeting, throwing into question the expediency of such gatherings.
Moscow has been unhappy with the NATO military buildup on Russia’s borders for some time now, with Russia’s envoy to NATO Aleksandr Grushko stating that Moscow would definitely compensate militarily for an “absolutely unjustified military presence.”
According to the 1997 NATO-Russia Founding Act, the permanent presence of large NATO formations at the Russian border is banned. Yet some voices in Brussels are saying that since the NATO troops stationed next to Russia are going to rotate, this kind of military buildup cannot be regarded as a permanent presence.

ALEPPO: The Western Media doesn’t want to talk about this. But, it’s true. The Saudis pretend it can’t happen. The Erdoghani Turks pretend they’re fighting terrorists and watch helplessly as the Syrian Army takes care of their business.
The terrorist forces in Aleppo are starving. Their medical situation is grim, at best. 4,000 newly injected rodents from Turkey have not been able to penetrate Syrian Army lines and are marginalized outside the city, evidently unaware that the final push is about to start. Once Aleppo is liberated, there will be no point in continuing that charade in Geneva.
POLITICALLY BANKRUPT; EUROPE AND U.S. STRUGGLE TO SAVE TERRORISTS IN ALEPPO, by Ziad Fadel, May 1, 2016 . . . I’ve taken the liberty of importing this part of Ziad’s article that is about Aleppo. It is not about blood and gore but is a detailed analysis about what is going on there now, and it concerns all the major players.
ALEPPO: From the very beginning of this conflict in March 2011, the West and its Arabian monkey puppets like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE, aimed to take over a major Syrian city in order to establish a competing power in the country which could challenge the writ of the Damascus central authority. Ideally, the fattest prize would have been the capital city. When that didn’t happen and it seemed too daunting a task, the focus fell on the huge industrial capital in the north, Aleppo, which had for, at least 2 years, resisted the efforts of the terrorist cannibals to enter the city. Aleppo, like Damascus, and like most of Syria, for that matter, is a multifaceted, demographically variegated crazy-quilt of minorities sprinkled throughout the majority Sunni population. And the Sunnis of Aleppo, are not known for their militancy or fundamentalist thinking. To the contrary, Aleppo remains Syria’s major center for the Sufist branch of Sunni Islam – a branch known for its spirituality and pacifism.
Damascus could not be broken for reasons we knew, here at SyrPer, having to do with the Zionist front. The Syrian Army was trained on fighting in the South and on the Golan where it expected all wars to start and end. Thus, the SAA concentrated its efforts on sealing the border with Jordan to prevent a Zionist Army flank movement from the South and on the Golan which Syria is intent on recovering from the claws of the Zionist rodents who now occupy Arab Palestine (Southern Syria). Constant assaults on the capital city led to nothing but occasional bombardment of serene, mixed neighborhoods in Jaramaanaa and ‘Adraa. In the final analysis, the terrorists of Jaysh Al-Islam were only able to infest the Eastern Ghouta from which they are now being slowly, and inexorably expelled. Other areas in the Qalamoon were eventually deloused.
But, Aleppo, seemingly safe, was vulnerable if only the Saudis could lean on Erdoghan enough to open a new front, a front upon which the Syrian Army did not concentrate. It was always assumed that the only trigger for Syrian-Turkish conflict was the Kurdish dimension; a matter which was resolved years ago when Abdullah Ocalan was exiled to Greece and, then, Africa. (He was captured by a Turk special operations unit in East Africa and returned to Turkey where he is doing a life sentence on Imrali Island.)
The Saudis found a receptive ear in Ankara, what with Recep Tayyip Erdoghan in power. The United States also played a part in opening doors from Turkey to Syria early on in order to arm the terrorists now collecting in large numbers in areas like Hatay, Gaziantep and Adana. Let’s forget about Hillary Clinton’s own involvement in sending Libyan weapons to Turkey in order to arm the anti-Ba’ath murderers via the criminal efforts of Christopher Stephens, the openly homosexual U.S. ambassador to Libya and a closet CIA agent (just like Robert Ford). That Benghazi episode will come back to haunt Clinton soon enough, but, it was a window into what was going on with the U.S. and NATO’s efforts to unseat a very popular Syrian president. That Erdoghan was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is lost on no one. He was receptive.
Erdoghan, also, had other motives. Aleppo was a major hub for the Ottoman Sultans ruling from the Sublime Porte in Istanbul. Anyone who ever lived in Aleppo, as your editor has, cannot but take note of the substantial Turkic/Armenian influences in everything from the speech patterns to the cuisine of the inhabitants. Erdoghan saw the Saudi and American overtures as an invitation to expansion; a justification for the pipe dream of a renewed empire with him as the revivified Sultan (or maybe Caliph). As absurd as this may sound, nations do not necessarily conduct business based solely on interest. There is the element of human frailty and gullibility. There is the element of psychosis which is what sunk Hitler in Russia and what is sinking Erdoghan today in Syria.
It took a long time for the Syrian Army to grasp the tactical challenges of shifting its priorities from the south to the north. But, with Russian and Iranian assistance, the transition to a country-wide battle, became a reality which we are watching today in Aleppo.
Aleppo is the penultimate goal for the government. Once it is liberated completely, talk of “political solutions” or “transitional governments” will seem banal, even meaningless. The U.S. and its allies know this which is why there is an explosion of diplomatic activity to rein in the SAA and its newly energized air force. They are trying desperately to stop the onslaught which, we predict, will result in the complete routing of the rodents in all of Aleppo City within the next few weeks. The Arab League, inspired by the cockroach-state of Qatar, is conducting an emergency meeting with a complete focus on Aleppo. The Qataris, through their propaganda-lie machine, Al-Jazeera, are ramping up the rhetoric, accusing the government in Damascus of “war crimes” and the like. Needless to say, nobody pays much attention to an ugly, overused prostitute like Al-Jazeera.
These kinds of techniques: trying to build up a furor amongst the public to justify direct intervention militarily is not going to work because the Russian administration has made it pellucidly clear that no “pressure will be applied to Syria while it is fighting terrorism”. This is Qatar’s nightmare. With a member of the Security Council obstructing the endeavor to save the last remaining Alqaeda rodents inside Aleppo, Qatar’s ruling pack of rodents has to deal now with the fact that it has lost over 100 billion dollars in reserves to support the maniacal war against the Syrian people.
The Saudis are even in a less enviable position. They have lost their special relationship with Washington. They are suing for peace in Yemen hoping to save some face through a negotiated return of their immensely unpopular factotum, Al-Haadi, to power. The recent statements by Houthi leaders indicates that the talks are going nowhere despite Kuwaiti nonsense mentioning a soon-to-be-announced “historic agreement”. In fact, the Ansaar-Ullah fighting machine has just liberated the Al-‘Amaaliqa military base opening up a Croesus-sized arsenal of weapons to be used for killing Saudis. The Saudis are up the creek without a paddle, so to speak. And their leadership is rudderless and naïve. We are watching to slow descent of the House of Saud into a cesspool of decrepitude.
Yesterday and today, the Syrian Army has advanced deeper into the Al-Raashideen Quarter liberating 8 buildings and killing 4 snipers. The terrorists here are almost all Alqaeda members and face a terrible destiny as our army batters them relentlessly from the nearby Dhaahiyat Al-Assad. SyrPer has received accurate reports of deepening ammunition and water shortages amongst the rodents in this area. We are confident it will fall soon enough because rodent chatter indicates a complete breakdown of morale with openly voluble expressions of lack of confidence in leadership. There are no supply routes left.
Press TV has interviewed James Jatras, former US Senate foreign policy analyst in Washington, to discuss the remarks by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying the NATO military alliance is moving closer to Russia’s borders, warning that Moscow will take necessary measures to protect its security.
Suppose the Nazis were not murdering Jews but were murdering ‘only’, say, Slavs, Gypsies, and Jehovah’s Witnesses; and suppose our beloved State of Israel were in existence: Would you agree to our selling arms to the Nazis? With this rhetoric question executive director and co-founder of the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide in Jerusalem, Israel Charny started his article “Would Israel sell a used drone to a Hitler?”
Charny makes a reference to the information that Israel is reported to have sold billions of dollars worth of arms, including to governments that are killing or threatening to attack civilians. He also reminds that last week there came reports that an Israeli drone in the hands of Azerbaijan – a huge arms customer of Israel – was responsible for the deaths of six Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh. And most recently Azerbaijani military transport planes were reported to have landed in Israel (perhaps to pick up and deliver arms) during the war with Armenia.
