Trump’s Surprising Speech In Saudi Arabia & Signing Of The Largest U.S. Arms Deal To Date

Published

on

A lot of change occurred within the global political landscape this week (or so it seems). We saw President Donald Trump deliver a powerful keynote speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudi Arabia, where  he signed the largest arms deal in U.S. history.

Instead of being a speech about “radical Islam,” which many believe to be a creation of the western military alliance, his speech in Saudi Arabia was one that discussed a future of peace and unity. Though it still contained a bit of fear mongering, it came as a surprise to many. Trump even announced that the U.S. was going to stop financing terrorist groups, a move that presumably would upset the elite and those who profit off war and terror. The fact that he has called out the US government multiple times for funding terrorism, is quite remarkable. It’s something that prior presidents never even talked about.

During his visit, Trump also signed the United States’ single largest arms deal to date, valuing at a whopping $350 billion with Saudi Arabia. However, when it comes to politics, things are rarely as they seem. Why is the Trump administration rewarding Saudi Arabia’s war crimes with more weaponry, and how will his promises affect global politics?

Details from Trump’s Speech in Saudi Arabia

Before I begin to analyze Trump’s address, it’s important to note that he didn’t actually write his speech himself. The speech was drafted by Stephen Miller, Senior Adviser for Policy and Speechwriter, who is well-known for his Islamophobic rhetorics, and the same individual who actually wrote Trump’s controversial travel ban.

This is another clear example of why we cannot trust what politicians say. This speech wasn’t even produced by the President himself, it was drafted by an advisor, so who knows what his actual views are. Secondly, Trump made some fairly racist remarks during his campaign, and now he is all of a sudden a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion. If anything, this is another example that proves how politicians will do and say anything in order to gain support from the public (or in many cases, the elite).

Here are some of the notable quotes from the speech:

After highlighting some of the more beautiful aspects of the Middle East, Trump explained, “But this untapped potential, this tremendous cause for optimism, is held at bay by bloodshed and terror. There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it.”

He then went on to address the sacredness of the land and why we shouldn’t be encouraging so much death and destructing, not just in the Middle East but everywhere, stating, “Terrorism has spread across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land.”

Trump announced that the U.S. would act as a friend of Saudi Arabia’s, noting, “America is prepared to stand with you—in pursuit of shared interests and common security.”

Here’s where the speech truly gets interesting. Up until this point, Trump has simply said some kind words on peace and a hopeful tomorrow, but now he proceeds to discuss how this newfound peace will come into fruition.

Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention.

Keep in mind that this is a very different stance than the U.S. government usually takes anywhere. Sudden intervention into conflicts in other countries has been the strategy of choice for many years now, and even the Trump administration demonstrated this when they chose to launch 50 missiles at Syria in response to the “chemical attack,” which the Syrian  and Russian President claimed was a false-flag attack orchestrated by the United States.

“Definitely, 100% for us, it’s fabrication… Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists. They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack,” President Assad said. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

Nevertheless, perhaps Trump’s words are sincere, or maybe the U.S. government only wants to extend their kindness to Saudi Arabia for an ulterior motive. At this point, it’s unclear. However, if they do put a halt to sudden interventions, this will not be a welcomed approach by many corporations and the elite who profit off war and chaos.

Trump continued:

I am proud to announce that the nations here today will be signing an agreement to prevent the financing of terrorism, called the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center – co-chaired by the United States and Saudi Arabia, and joined by every member of the Gulf Cooperation Council. It is another historic step in a day that will be long remembered.

This is perhaps the most noteworthy statement Trump made during his speech. The U.S. has funded terrorist groups for at least the past 20 years, which has been proven by various government documents and has been openly discussed by numerous members of the government. Halting the funding to terrorist groups would be a huge financial loss to the U.S. government.

U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard addressed U.S. arms sales to ISIS and other terrorist groups in a speech, offering a compelling call to action in the process:

I return to Washington, DC with even greater resolve to end our illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government. I call upon Congress and the new Administration to answer the pleas of the Syrian people immediately and support the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. We must stop directly and indirectly supporting terrorists—directly by providing weapons, training and logistical support to rebel groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and ISIS; and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, and Turkey, who, in turn, support these terrorist groups. We must end our war to overthrow the Syrian government and focus our attention on defeating al-Qaeda and ISIS.

You can read our CE article about it here.

The Treasury described the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC) as a “collaborative approach to confronting new and evolving threats arising from terrorist financing.” The TFTC’s primary goals include identifying, tracking and sharing information on terrorist financing, with a focus on disrupting the flow of finances and weaponry while also providing support to the region in order to deprive radical groups such as Islamic State and al Qaeda. To be clear, these are the very groups that the U.S. funds, so this would be a significant change in regime for the U.S. government.

Congresswoman Gabbard actually already commented on the TFTC, referring to it as a “farce,” which isn’t much of a surprise given many of the countries history in funding terrorists and their extreme interpretation of Islam.

So, how does the new U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia relate to all of this?

Trump Rewards Saudi War Crimes With $350 Billion Worth of Weapons

In October 2016, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition bombed an entire funeral hall in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, injuring and killing hundreds of civilians. Almost immediately after, the Obama administration suspended the sale of approximately $400 million worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia.

The United Nations statement on Yemen states, “Nearly 2.2 million children in Yemen are acutely malnourished and require urgent care. At least 462,000 children suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), a drastic increase of almost 200 per cent since 2014.” What’s worse is that the U.S. is in part to blame for this, as Human Rights Watch found remnants of U.S. laser-guided or satellite-guided munitions at three strike locations, two of which resulted in civilian casualties.

The worsening state of Yemen is also a direct result of the war fuelled by the Saudis, who purchase arms from the U.S.. In December 2016, the U.S. announced that they would stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia due to the extreme violence and increasing number of deaths in Yemen. However, this was likely a PR stunt, as the U.S. was still planning to continue to support Morocco, Qatar, and the U.A.E. at the time, which all play significant roles in the Saudi-led coalition.

Even Congresswoman Gabbard was quoted as saying that the “CIA has also been funnelling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda.”

And now, we have Trump, who literally just expressed his sentiments to all countries experiencing war and terror and pledged to help create a more peaceful future for all, signing a $350 billion deal to sell weapons to a country that fuels war and terror. It makes you question why he gave that speech in the first place: Was it all just a massive PR stunt to make the public think that the U.S. is fighting war and terror, when in reality they’re funding it?

Though the $350 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia will be over the span of 10 years, approximately $110 billion will be taken into effect immediately. The U.S. Department of State said in a statement on Saturday:

“This package of defense equipment and services supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian related threats. Additionally, it bolsters the Kingdom’s ability to provide for its own security and continue contributing to counterterrorism operations across the region, reducing the burden on US military forces.”

Final Thoughts 

To me, this sounds as if Trump wants Saudi Arabia to do the U.S. government’s dirty work. This begs the question: How long will Saudi Arabia agree to do so? By holding active deals with Saudi Arabia, the U.S. government isn’t just putting their reputation at risk, they’re putting all Americans in the cross fire, so to speak. If the U.S. continues to sell arms to a country that has violated the laws of war numerous times, it’s exposing U.S. officials to legal liability for aiding and abetting coalition war crimes.

Let’s keep in mind that Trump isn’t really the one who’s in charge here, he could just be the political puppet of choice. We know he didn’t write the speech, and realistically he’s probably not making these decisions either. Ask yourself: What groups of people profit from chaos and violence the most?

When it comes to alleged “terrorist attacks,” wars, and any type of violence or chaos, the sad truth is that the government, the shadow government, or the elite are often involved. Regardless, the U.S. government is ultimately controlled by the cabal, but both of them have two common interests: profit and control. So, is Trump really looking to inspire peace, or is he somehow profiting from the chaos? Perhaps the answer to that question is both, but after looking at this new Saudi Arabia arms deal, it’s clear that there is truth in the latter.

On a final note, this information isn’t meant to scare readers. We believe that through education and raising consciousness, we can create positive change. The more we think for ourselves and search for the truth, the greater the potential for change!

WHAT?! Marineland Is Officially Exempt From Canada’s Ban On Whale & Dolphin Captivity

Published

on

Image: 123RF

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently passed a bill that bans the capture and captivity of whales and dolphins. Marineland, a huge whale/dolphin entertainment park, has been exempted from the law that makes it illegal to do so.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives human beings the right to hold such majestic, innocent, benevolent and intelligent animals captive? What gives them the right to separate them from their families? Why do we treat other beings on Earth the way we do?

Animal captivity is extremely cruel and heartbreaking. Imagine what another intelligent, benevolent race would think if they came across our planet and observed what we do. My guess is that they’d be terrified to attempt to interact with us simply based on how we treat other sentient, benevolent beings on this planet.

Canada recently passed a legislation that completely bans keeping whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity for entertainment, trade, possession, capture and breeding. The bill (S-203) is also known as the “Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act,” and it was approved by the House of Commons after they voted in favour of the bill, which was first introduced in 2015.

The only time capture is permitted in Canada is for rescue purposes or, unfortunately, for scientific purposes.

According to Green Party Leader MP Elizabeth May, “Canadians have been clear, they want the cruel practice of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity to end… With the passage of Bill S-203, we have ensured that this will happen.”

More than 20 marine scientists and stakeholder organizations endorsed the bill, which quite frankly should have happened long ago. These beings, or any beings for that matter, do not belong in tanks where they are constantly suffering. These are extremely emotional, social, empathetic and brilliant beings. What we’ve done to them and continue to do to them is beyond horrid, to be blunt.

This bill was supposed to phase out this type of captivity in Canada, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as Marineland Canada’s whales will remain at the park following the page of S-203. Already captive whales will remain in captivity, which means approximately 60 animals will live out their entire lives at Marineland and at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Canadian law now states that it’s a criminal offence, as it should be, to keep a cetacean in captivity, but it looks like Marineland Canada has been exempted from this. It does not seem, however, that they can bring more animals into the park, but they’ll more than likely begin breeding programs to keep their business going for as long as they can.

According to Marie Holer, a representative from Marineland Canada:

We’ve been working to evolve Marineland for over a year and have made many positive changes to the park, including the new educational presentation on marine mammals, the introduction of the Marineland Express and our Polar Splash pad that will open in July. Since opening day, we’ve seen our largest crowds in years and are thrilled that so many people support us in our work. We’re looking forward to enhancing our education, conservation and research focus in the short term to highlight our commitment to marine mammals.”

Is this truly a good step? As long as these animals are in captivity, there can be no care given to these animals. Why do we as human beings feel we can imprison animals like this is simply for entertainment? It feels heartbreaking, confusing, and makes deeply question the state of our connection to wildlife.

Have we really become that disconnected from life?

It’s not all bleak though! Things are obviously improving, and that’s become quite evident thanks to the vast amount of activism over the years that has finally resulted in the passing of the legislation mentioned in this article, but we still have a long way to go.

Remember, these animals have never really shown any type of aggression towards humans, except in captivity.

The Takeaway

Why do human beings go to the circus? Why do they go to places like Marineland? Is it because human beings are terrible? No. It’s simply because many of us have been desensitized and have not quite questioned this in many ways. Which is OK! That’s part of the process. When it comes to animal captivity, mass marketing and scientific justifications have allowed our minds to be manipulated. They’ve made us think that animal captivity is okay, when clearly we would not like to be confined against our will, so why do it to others?

I believe that we’re all born as extremely understanding beings, and that humans are a very empathetic race. I believe that our feelings and our ability to experience empathy are what makes us special. I also believe that these traits and characteristics left us for a while, but they are now returning and we are beginning to “think” from our hearts again.

This is why awareness regarding animal captivity has increased and will continue to increase around the globe until it is completely banned everywhere, or until people simply stop showing up to these places and providing them with profits.

Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?

A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)

The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.

For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13 uncovered documents showing that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.

Most Significant Leak?

Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.

More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.

The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.

The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”

You can view the entire document here.

if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.

The Takeaway

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.

At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.

This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.

British Home Secretary Has Signed Extradition Order To Send Julian Assange To US

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    British home secretary Sajid Javid has signed the extradition order to send Julian Assange to the US. This now leaves the final decision to the courts. It's likely that the extradition decision process will take many months to decide in court.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this another step in harming the freedom of press? The freedom of revealing truth to citizens? Is this government overreach whereby they feel it's OK to pretend to the public that their knowledge of truth is not important?

The British home secretary, Sajid Javid, has just signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, for charges linked to computer hacking and revealing government secrets in collaboration with Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning. The charges all fall under the Espionage Act.

“He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.” – Sayid Javid

Officially, Assange is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer. “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts,” said Javid.

If you were to look entirely at the law, you might say “yes, technically if he did these things, there is a case to be made.” However, was Assange involved enough in this process to prosecute him? Did he do something that was a disservice to the people? Or did he do something that was a disservice to the powerful elite?

That is something for you to decide, ideally without the manipulative rhetoric from the powerful elite and the mainstream media they own. Attempts to suggest he threatens the patriotism of the US and the national security of the US might be something to observe as a clear sign of bait and switch: get upset at this, instead of looking at what he revealed about the powerful elite in the totality of the leaks he has put out.

Swedish courts had just recently rejected an extradition request for Assange to be sent back to Sweden for an alleged rape case dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation and has since the beginning. The decision out of Upsalla to deny his request was fueled by the claim that Assange did not need to be detained.

Assange is currently in jail for 50 weeks for skipping bail after he spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He was recently too ill to appear at a hearing at Westminster magistrates court in relation to the US request. The hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, June 14th, 2019.

Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.

“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course. Despite this, the Swedish authorities will be monitoring the process carefully as the further down the line the US proceedings get the harder it might become for the home secretary to give precedence to any competing request.”

The Takeaway

From a systematic standpoint, this is a necessary procedural step in extraditing Assange to the US and it has been granted. It could have been blocked but Javid felt it was necessary for ‘justice to be served.’

As we can see, this is an example of a spot where someone could have stood up and said “no I don’t support this given what it does to protect the powerful elite and given what it does to journalism and the maintenance of secrecy.” Obviously, Javid would have faced much criticism if he had stood up, perhaps legal problems too, we were not able to confirm that, but we are seeing a system play entirely along with the power elite in this case.

In the video below, there is an important discussion on some of the ‘Qanon’ ideas in relation to Assange. My analysis on that is that it appears to be heavily misguided, but you decide for yourself.
