Je Suis ISIS

False Flags? G20? COP21? Strong Cities Network? Refugees?

What’s that in the fireplace?

Fareed Zakaria interviewed John Kerry “…on the next steps for the U.S. response to the crisis in Syria and Iraq, whether there is still hope for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, if Iran’s actions towards the West have improved since the P5+1 nuclear deal, and what to expect from next week’s global conference on climate change.”

The interview was posted Friday 13th, 3:36PM EST… the day of the attacks (actually, at the exact same time as the first attack) and one day before Jean Jullien’s ‘Peace for Paris’ artwork went viral. The interview had certainly taken place quite some time before this.

Did Jean Julien copy this? He seemed extremely defensive when I asked him about it. Is this a simple case of ‘plagariat,’ or there something more nefarious going on?

It is worth mentioning that this is the only one of Fareed Zakaria’s CNN interviews which is not available online.

Besides,

Some soldiers were on duty in front of the Bataclan … but they did not intervene

 

And one more thing…

It bears repeating here that there are ‘terrorist’ events of this scale happening every week in Africa, Asia, and South America. These events are almost never reported unless they serve some higher purpose. Did we ever bring back Michelle Obama’s Chibok girls? Do you know? Do you remember? Does she? Boko Haram et al. have been importing young girls and boys into Europe to serve the sexual desires of the European elite ever since colonial days at the rate of thousands per year.

Middle America, now it’s a tragedy
Now it’s so sad to see, an upper class city
Having this happening (this happening)…

Paul Craig Roberts, in a recently penned article has written, “…the world is accustomed to following the lead of the West.” This is wrong. More correctly, the world has no choice but to follow the lead of the West. If it didn’t, we’d never hear about it anyhow. Emerging markets are being dragged around by the nose-ring in order to support a western narrative, western military goals, and western economic policy. In the west-centric news cycle, only white lives matter. This is why shutting the door to millions of migrants/refugees because of a single fake Syrian passport will be an easy and readily acceptable thing to do.

Is Paris the European equivalent of 9/11? Will the world have to radically change because of it? Are the lives of 100+ Parisiens that much more worthy of fighting for than the hundreds of thousands or millions of middle-easterners who have suffered at the hands of the West for centuries? Who are the terrorists and what is the true goal behind their attacks?

Welcome Back Qatar

The recent drop in the price of oil has had widespread negative consequences for Canada and many other net oil-exporting countries. It has also had dire consequences for the United States. The fracking industry has seen lay-offs, rig closures, and the beginnings of consolidation; the smaller outfits are becoming more and more attractive to large corporate buy-outs as their over-leveraged business models are being slaughtered by dwindling margins. We have been told that lower gas prices are good for the average consumer, but how good can it be if it takes out their entire economy? The petro-dollar scheme, it would appear, is showing signs of stress.

Meanwhile, strategic reserves and storage facilities are filling up fast. It has been estimated that all the extra storage space left in the USA will be full by the end of May. According to the American Petroleum Institute (API) last month saw the biggest build-up of US oil reserves in 34 years (at least.) Most countries that can afford to buy more oil are also adding to their reserves; and who can’t at these prices? Stockpiles are at an all-time high, and not just in the USA; China is also buying a lot of oil while the prices are near record lows. When all the storage capacity is used up, oil will be dumped onto the market driving the price down even further. Yet, the algos aren’t crashing; nobody is putting much pressure on the Saudis to cut production, the markets are not in a panic, and there seems to be a laissez-faire attitude towards the whole debacle. Surely this must be temporary. Maybe things will turn out for the best, but how? We’ll get back to this in a moment.

The Arab spring has brought about many changes in the middle-east. Egypt, Bahrain, and Yemen have seen meaningful change since 2011, and they are not alone. There has been a political awakening in some parts of the region, and there are now new actors taking the stage. ISIS has become a force thanks to the backing (either direct or indirect) of the Saudi and American governments; a renewed call for a caliphate has re-awoken a new generation of Arabs who want to assert themselves internationally. There are grass-roots political movements springing up all around the region and even spilling into northern Africa. It seems that change is all around.
