      So Wikileaks is being sued for publishing the truth? Can’t see that flying far.

        How long before the Republicans sue Democrats for leaking to the media to harm their party? Should be a new industry.

    The Sirius Report with London Paul

    On the 04/18/18 RogueMoney radio show, London Paul addresses last week’s Syria strikes failure due to Russia’s enormous advantage in electronic warfare over the US military, plus CIA director and Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo’s now disclosed preliminary peace talks meeting in Pyongyang with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

    London Paul says Trump is listening to advisers who are either delusional or deliberately feeding the President false intel, including about the efficacy of the Friday the 13th missile strikes and Israel’s aerial and proxy war efforts to fight ‘Iranian influence’ in Syria. He adds there was no arrangement to put on a Tomahawk missiles fireworks show between Washington and Moscow, but on the contrary, London Paul says Russia and China are determined to make the Americans pay a severe economic price for their aggression.

    Rising interest rates could clobber the wildly over-leveraged U.S. consumer and shale oil industry, at the very moment Washington is foolishly initiating a trade war with its increasingly furious creditors in the Chinese. More controversially for some in this audience, London Paul also tackles QAnon’s ‘trust the plan’ line to Trump supporters as nonsense, challenging RM’s audience to avoid black and white binary thinking as we enter a new global paradigm.

      Drivel. Russia’s GDP is now reduced to that of Texas. No way they can pressure the US economically – it is all in the reverse direction. Likewise China is rolling over on tariffs and NK under Trump’s pressure. The Syria strikes destroyed their targets as shown by the satellite photos produced by independent companies. What are you smoking?

        The Chinese own the USA dept.
        The USA is 24,000,000,000,000 in hock
        If when it comes time to renew Chinese don’t roll it over?
        USA pays more to borrow the money from else where.

        Fracking for shale gas is losing money.
        It cost them more to frack than they get from the results .
        Oil executives get paid for volume of product.
        So they just keep borrowing more to expand operations.
        Eventually this will catch up to the industry.
        They all go broke bringing down the USA economy.

          They owe HOW MUCH ???

          The wossname debt clock will be able to be used for a fan this summer.

          US$ denominated debt can be paid simply by printing more money. Good luck to China with that ploy.

          That debt is all used to purchase Chinese goods. Who owns who exactly.

    Should one believe Alan Wilkinson’s assertions or should one take note of the actual words of the Russian President?.

    Alan Wilkinson, Moon of Alabama has this to say about polygraph.info –

    “…
    Some time ago the CIA propaganda outlets Voice of America and Radio Free Europe started a ‘fact-checking’ website and named it Polygraph.info. (Some satirist or a clueless intern must have come up with that name. No country but the U.S. believes that the unscientific results of polygraph tests have any relation to truthfulness. To any educated non-U.S. citizen the first association with the term ‘polygraph’ is the term ‘fake’.) …”
