Tensions Explode With Russia, Trump Fires Problems, Economic Update

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 326 3.16.18)

The U.S., UK, France and Germany are all blaming Russia for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain. Russia is denying the attack, but that is not stopping Prime Minister Theresa May from expelling Russian diplomats.  Russia is reportedly responding in kind.  President Trump is adding sanctions against Russia, and the whole thing may be a prelude to a global conflict or at least a trade war.

President Trump is using that old familiar phrase he made famous on the Apprentice TV show. He told his National Security Advisor and his Secretary of State “You’re Fired” this week and already has replacements lined up.

We have been told the economy is doing great, but the Atlanta Federal Reserve is saying otherwise. It is saying the first quarter of 2018 will come in with a sluggish 1.9% GDP.  That’s way down from the projected 5% GDP number being talked about a few weeks ago.  John Williams of ShadowStats.com is also warning of a slowing U.S. economy.  He says watch what the Fed will do and watch the dollar.

    Regarding Russia’s nerve agent attack in Britain: there’s an interesting point of view at
    The Neocon Full Court Press For War Is Here“
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-15/neocon-full-court-press-war-here

    No personal analysis, but I do find it curious that Russian agents would use assassination tactics that point straight back to Moscow — not exactly clandestine, I’d expect better… or maybe they think if it’s that obvious nobody will believe it could really be the Russians.

    • Robert

      Paul Craig Roberts was saying the lab that created vx gas in the 1950s, is 6 miles from the pub that Russian agent was murdered.

      Usually when agency’s like the KGB, CIA and Mossad employ targeted assassinations, they dont have collateral damage. Other people in the pub were also harmed in that attack. I don’t believe the official story and how its being used to further destroy Russian foreign relations. China will side with Russia if an actual war breaks out. Is that where the neocons are leading us, again?

      In the lead up to the Iraq war, Tony Blair gave cover to GWB in getting the public prepared for another war based on lies. Is Trump now doing the same for May? I voted for Trump because he wasnt a war hawk esp against Russia. He’s been influenced differently now. The Russia Russia Russia war mongering is wrong. Russia was our ally in the fight on terrorism till NATO wanted to place nukes on Russia’s border…and Putin said no way. Just like we would if Russia wanted to place nukes on our borders.

        We were warned about war with Russia planned back in 2014 by Dr Ulfkotte
        This is nothing more than a false flag
        https://www.globalresearch.ca/world-class-journalist-spills-the-beans-admits-mainstream-media-is-completely-fake/5516749
        I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.

        But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.

        Dr. Udo Ulfkotte

        Dr. Udo Ulfkotte is a top German journalist and editor and has been for more than two decades, so you can bet he knows a thing or two about mainstream media and what really happens behind the scenes.

    • Paul ...

      I don’t believe the killing of “one spy” would have Britain , France and the US “hopping mad” and ready to do battle and impose sanctions on a nuclear power … it is more likely the fact that Russia has plans to soon release the world’s first precious metal currency (that will stay in circulation) as it won’t have any monetary value stamped on it the way the West does to keep their precious metal coins (out of circulation) so as to allow the banksters to flood the world with their worthless fiat paper with zero intrinsic value!!

      • Paul ...

        Is Trump so dumb that he doesn’t know what we all know? … that the Russian spy was killed to cover up the tracks that would have lead to the indictment of the Demon-rat’s that planted the “fake dossier” about Trump and his supposed collusion with the Russians (to deny Hillary her rightful place as President of the United States)? … is this because Trump still believes Hillary is a “nice lady” and needs to be protected by going to nuclear war with Russia??? … and Germany who depends upon Russian gas to power its economy and industries is also going to go to war with Russia?? … come on!! … do these mentally handicapped Demon-rats figure the American people are so dumb that if they used a Colt 45 to kill the Russian spy it would imply the US was behind the killing (so they found some Russian gas to do the job??) … they can easily fool all the mentally handicapped snowflakes into signing up for military service in support of WWIII (as the now “half brained” Hillary would have wanted even before half her cancerous brain was surgically removed in 2013) … but the rest of the American people … are not so easily fooled into going to nuclear war with Russia because one Russian spy was killed!!

        • Paul ...

          Going to global war … will sacrifice humanity on a “Nuclear Cross” … so as to “save” the people (who do great evil) … from the Judgement of Jesus (and his Christian followers) … who call them out for what they are traitors to all that is good in the world … these degenerate warmongering evil Satanic neocon pedophiles can’t chop off the heads of Christians fast enough … so they need a worldwide nuclear war to do the job … they don’t like the “deal” our Founding Fathers struck with the American people (like the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, etc., etc.) … the neocons don’t want us to have the right to speak freely … they don’t want us to have a right to protect ourselves (just as they don’t want to give N. Korea or Iran the right to protect themselves from criminals that have more firepower then they have) … they tell us the “world policeman” will protect their children (the way American children were protected from a sniper at that Florida school or the way way Palestinian, Israeli and other children around the world are protected from sniper fire??) … we American’s won’t abdicate our Second Amendment Right to own a weapon to protect ourselves from evil crooks … yet we American’s want to force others to give up their right to defend themselves from criminals who have “very significant firepower” … we defeated Hillary who only had “half a brain” (after her cancer operation) because we did not want to be dragged into a nuclear war with Russia … come on Trump … don’t be fooled by the warmongering neocons into starting the war Hillary wanted … her brain cancer was probably caused by drinking “raw blood” at her Satanic “baby sacrifices” … but you don’t drink blood Trump … there is no reason good enough to bring the world to nuclear war … the neocons who rubbed out the Russian spy to protect their asses (the way they rubbed out Jesus to protect their asses 2000 years ago) are going to crucify all of humanity now because “one Russian spy was killed???” … give me a break!! … lets get the Military Tribunals started now against all the demented treasonous evil perverted neocon pedophiles in England, France, Germany and the US who want a nuclear war to save their sorry asses!!!

          • Paul ...

            We know casino owner Sheldon Adelson made a “big contribution” to the Trump election campaign … but does that “obligate Trump” to drop a nuclear bomb in Iran’s back yard to “show them we mean business”?? … I hope not Trump (I don’t think you would really do it) … for imagine if an MS13 (Mexican drug gang) took over your neighborhood … and decided to go into your back yard and fire off their AK47 in the air (just to show you they mean business) … do you really think that that will make a homeowner give up his shotgun?? … such overwhelming chutzpah and “show of force” will only engender a homeowner to get “better weapons” to protect his home and family from such out of control marauding gangs surrounding his home!! … likewise … we Americans are now being told by the Washington neocons that the Founding Fathers gave them a “bad deal” with the 2nd Amendment (and that it must be modified along with the 1st Amendment) … good luck on getting that one done … you perverted evil neocon pedophile scum!! … https://www.timesofisrael.com/sheldon-adelson-calls-on-us-to-nuke-iranian-desert/

        Hey Greg why is your site trying to canvas fingerprint my computer ?

        • Mushroom

          What is “canvas fingerprint”.

          Thanks in advance for your expiation.

    • Silence is Golden

      Its my understanding that the UK itself possesses the rare chemical nerve agent supposedly “used by Russia”.

      Will Trump fall into the “Trap” set for him ??…..consider this theory…
      “Thucydides Trap” refers to when a rising power causes fear in an established power which escalates toward war. Thucydides (born 460 bc or earlier?—died after 404 bc?), greatest of ancient Greek historians and author of the History of the Peloponnesian War wrote: “What made war inevitable was the growth of Athenian power and the fear which this caused in Sparta.”

      • philipat

        Greg,
        John Bolton? You mean he of the Gatestone Institute and one of the most radical ziocons? We have discussed previously that you are a supporter of zionism but Bolton, if selected, is inconsistent with your view that Trump is now getting rid of the Deep State players and selecting his own “swamp-drainers”? Sorry to disagree but Bolton is one of the worst radical zionist neocon Deep State swamp dwellers.
        You see so many things so clearly and I know you are sincere, but when it comes to anything involving Israel and radical zionism, you lose me.
        And before I am attacked as usual for being “Anti-semitic” I would again state that I am not anti-anything. I have many Jewish friends who are also anti-zionist and my problem with Israel is not with its people but with the radical zionist policies of its Government and its treatment of the Palestinian people in particular. You should do the research.

      “Curious” with all due respect Russ doesn’t really cut it!

      How about farcical, ridiculous, preposterous, ludicrous, absurd, nonsensical.
      And yet even Trump couldn’t resist joining in the chorus when he endorsed Britain’s stance….IMHO his comments were presumptuous, disgraceful and irresponsible in the extreme.

      The West has seriously lost the plot judging by their collective behaviour this week.
      This all reeks to high heaven to me…I certainly hope Celente’s words don’t come back to haunt us all.

      • Russ

        No, curious will have to do. The adjectives you provide presuppose that Russia provably had no role; that would require us to prove a negative, or conclusively prove some other state organization not tied to Russia actually did do it. The only fingerprints here are Russian and yet for some that makes no sense, so they instinctively think it was a set-up. It was so clumsy an attempt that neither of the victims died; not a very satisfactory result from what is considered an extremely deadly nerve agent. The event almost seems a non sequitur.

        None of this makes sense; you can’t prove it and you can’t disprove it and yet PM May is amping it up to expel Russian diplomats and Russia will respond in kind. A lot of noise that sets back relations and leaves a bad taste.

        There is another thought and that involves the article at https://uk.news.yahoo.com/news/investigators-reportedly-suspect-nerve-agent-121518728.html and the theory that the attack on Skripal was about his ties to Christopher Steele of Trump Dossier fame.
        * Squid-puppets responding to Slack Jack Fri, 03/16/2018 – 07:30
        “Zero Hedgelings. I’m disappointed in you lot. normally you are dot connectors par-excellence
        Who has motivation to kill a Russian implicated in creating the now discredited ‘Steele Trump-Russia Dossier’ ?
        Hillary Rodham Clinton.
        It covers her tracks, and in blaming it on Russia it continues the smokescreen that been ongoing since Trump’s election”

        Consider that a semi-state actor (undefined) may have been responsible, but not someone who was really good at their job. They used a tactic that did not guarantee success (which smells of desperation) and the result was the two victims are in a hospital and not in the morgue.

        Bottom line is that we don’t really know who is responsible for using the Novichok nerve agent. It could have been the Russians and it could have been some 3rd party contractor attempting to eliminate a witness for HRC.

        I don’t see where Putin gains from this and to me that is a tell. We really don’t know and apparently the people who really should know, they don’t know either. But they are blaming the Russians nonetheless so I hope they know more than the various news organizations. Otherwise tensions are ratcheting up between nuclear powers over nothing.

        Machiavelli — I need to read “The Prince” again.

    • Russ

      There is anothergood read on the nerve agent attack at: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-15/uk-manufacturing-its-nerve-agent-case-action-russia
      “Is The UK Manufacturing Its Nerve Agent Case For ‘Action’ On Russia?”
      The article is a worthwhile read and food for thought, but the end of the article is a good summary:
      …”The actual history of Novichok shows that out of the countries discussed here, Russia is the only state to have been certified by the OPCW as having destroyed its chemical weapons programme, including its nerve agent capabilities. The OPCW found no evidence to indicate that Russia retains an active Novichok capability. The same is not the case for the US, Britain and Israel.

      There is no legitimate reason for the British authorities to rule out that any of these states could have at the very least ‘lost control’ of their nerve agent stockpiles. The fact that the government chose, instead, to shut down all avenues of inquiry other than to claim falsely that the “only possibility” is for all roads to lead to Russia, demonstrates that we are almost certainly in the midst of a concerted state propaganda operation.

      It may turn out that Russia did indeed carry out the Novichok attack. But at this time, the British state has no real basis to presume this. Which implies that the state has already decided that it wants to manufacture a path to heightened hostilities with Russia, regardless of the evidence. And that does not bode well.” …

      Obviously, the author of the article doesn’t know everything that MI5/6 knows regarding the nerve agent analysis, but what we’ve seen in the MSM is not compelling, unless from a political standpoint you need it to be so. Apparently the British government needs the investigation to be conclusive, therefore it is.

      Really? That’s all they’ve got?

      • Russ

        Really, that’s all they’ve got.

        Porton Down also conducted extensive nerve agent tests on British soldiers around this time.

        Less well-known, though, is the fact that members of the British armed forces “were experimented on with Sarin, the deadly nerve gas, as late as 1983 at the Government’s defence research centre at Porton Down,” according to Ministry of Defence documents obtained by The Telegraph. Operation Antler, as the police investigation into the experiments was called, found that the nerve agent trials had gone on as late as 1989.

        Russ,
        From your link above,

        Porton Down conducted extensive nerve agent tests on British soldiers around this time.

        Russ it never ceases to amaze me how our wonderful intell folks so willingly experiment on our nations finest,
        unbeknown-est to them of course. These guy’s are not James Bond, but scum. They should be rounded up an given a dose of their own medicine!

      British Scientists Confirm So-Called “Russian” Poison May NOT Be Russian
      http://washingtonsblog.com/2018/03/british-scientists-confirm-so-called-russian-poison-may-not-be-russian.html
      So let me get this straight, it strained credulity that the Brit PM Theresa May was so eager to blame Putin for the poison attack for reasons already discussed here, now it turns out …
      “Porton Down [the UK’s only chemical weapons facility] scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so.” Politicians sticking their nose into science? Say it ain’t so. How do you walk back a premature diplomatic incident?

      Maybe we should just let the scientists do science and stop giving them the results before the samples are analyzed…

      • Russ

        A link to Craig Murray‘s blog discussing the nerve agent attack in Britain is at: https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/

        There is much more at his blog than was shown in the WashingtonsBlog article.

    • sam

      ALso Craig Murray got some interesting info:
      To summarise:
      https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/03/the-novichok-story-is-indeed-another-iraqi-wmd-scam/
      1) Porton Down has acknowledged in publications it has never seen any Russian “novichoks”. The UK government has absolutely no “fingerprint” information such as impurities that can safely attribute this substance to Russia.
      2) Until now, neither Porton Down nor the world’s experts at the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) were convinced “Novichoks” even exist.
      3) The UK is refusing to provide a sample to the OPCW.
      4) “Novichoks” were specifically designed to be able to be manufactured from common ingredients on any scientific bench. The Americans dismantled and studied the facility that allegedly developed them. It is completely untrue only the Russians could make them, if anybody can.
      5) The “Novichok” programme was in Uzbekistan not in Russia. Its legacy was inherited by the Americans during their alliance with Karimov, not by the Russians.

      With a great many thanks to sources who cannot be named at this moment.

You covered a lot of topics tonight and I never miss your videos, I asked our police chief what form of government we had , he’d said a democracy, I asked him if he new the pledge of alliance , he looked a little stunned with “and to the republic for which it stands”. I calmly suggested he read some http://Www.annavonreitz.com articles so he would be able to have a little more insight on corruption,debt, debt slavery ,gold silver and the real DeJeur republic.

    Greg,
    You know when the Establishment are desperate….especially when it concerns the King Petro-Dollar regime (threats and alternatives)…..they will foment trouble….aka Iran/Syria/Russia….enter the “Nerve Gas” incident….
    …….the sacking of Tillerson ….and the APPOINTMENT of Pompeo….as SOS are telling.
    Pompeo is a neoconservative with a racist anti-Muslim attitude and has a special hate for IRAN…. which he compared to ISIS. The Nuclear “deal” is DEAD.
    Are we now just waiting for an accident…??…to light the fuse that starts a world conflagration……to me its too obvious what these Luciferians have as their objective.

    • Silence is Golden

      With all the news that’s circulating……one important piece slipped under the radar.
      Who is the new Head of the CIA ?
      Her name…..Gina Haspel – former covert agent and Head of the CIA’s clandestine service.
      https://www.cia.gov/news-information/press-releases-statements/2017-press-releases-statements/gina-haspel-selected-to-be-deputy-director-of-cia.html
      She is well known for actively directing and participating in the torture of prisoners at ‘black sites’. She was directly involved in its controversial interrogation program and had an “extensive role” in torturing detainees. Even more troubling, she “had run a secret prison in Thailand”.
      Back in 2013 her background posed political problems at a time when the controversy over the agency’s treatment of detainees reemerged.
      Beyond all that, she played a vital role in the destruction of interrogation videotapes that showed the torture of detainees both at the black site she ran and other secret agency locations. The concealment of those interrogation tapes, which violated multiple court orders as well as the demands of the 9/11 commission and the advice of White House lawyers, was condemned as “obstruction” by commission chairs Lee Hamilton and Thomas Keane.
      If you need confirmation about who this women is ….make a call to Kevin Shipp.
      Here is the critical part:
      Haspel would be in jail if former POTUS Barack Obama had not decided against prosecuting the CIA torture crimes.
      This same person has just been chosen by TRUMP to head the CIA.
      Both Pompeo and Haspel will need Congress approval…..The Communists will vote overwhelmingly in their favor.

        SG, You did a fine job picking up all the ‘leftist Marxist’ talking points about CIA Pick… But ‘waterboarding’ was legal when in use…and you offer NO PROOF she did so AFTER it was decided not to be used…so your comments MIGHT be defamation and slander if YOU ARE accusing her of a crime? That some in the CIA chose to then get rid of ‘records’ of the names of agents that had used those techiques after the ‘policy’ was reversed…and in the view of what the Obama Admin. might wish to do to them or possibly do as you are now…and in light of their ‘use of unmasking ‘some’ people’ for political purposes now…in my view…makes those acts reasonable. Look at what they have done to Binney and Snowden for revealing their illegal use of surveillance on U.S. citizens… Likely the ‘concern’ about her….might be of those who may face a military tribunal if and when the EO and asset forfeiture policy moves forward as to the organ, gun, drug, sex and child trafficking via the reported AWAN spy ring in Wash. D.C. /Florida EB-5 visa program…
        The only confirmation needed at this time —is a complete review of Clinton Foundation as Charles Ortel has done…prosecutions…asset forfeitures and arrests and clawbacks of all donations and fine and prosecution of all parties that ‘contributed’ to a criminal enterprize used to fund illegal political campaign efforts, money to terrorist orgs. and ratlines for illegal sale/transfer of organs, children, drugs, weapons, and natural resources it they occurred….as being revealed by the interviews by George Webb, Jason Goodman and Herman Wilfred.
        But – we know – the DNC and Marxist left do not want to go there don’t we…!

        • Silence is Golden

          JO,
          Did I strike a nerve …with something I posted?
          Who are you defending? Sounds like you are leftist marxist…because thats where the support for these Luciferians emanates.
          How are you so familiar with the technique of “Waterboarding”….and of the timing of the sequence of events that unfolded? I am intrigued.
          I made no accusation whatsoever. I just presented the FACTS. Its all about the “Character” of the person chosen…as head of the CIA….that sets the tone for how they will (have) function. Same is true for any Organisation.
          Congress has the responsibility for OVERSIGHT of the CIA.
          Destroying records (“some in the CIA chose to then get rid of ‘records’ ) is an indictable offence. Sounds very much like something out of the HRC playbook..dont ya think. When affected parties go to extreme lengths to remove evidence….you finish the sentence….!!
          Unmasking perhaps….but that doesnt remove the question mark over the POTUS decision to place this woman as head of the CIA….nor for that matter… Pompeo’s move to SOS.
          Take off the rose coloured glasses. You will get a clearer perspective. There’s more than just one confirmation needed at this time……I dont play the game of diversion.

    Greg,

    Wars and rumors of wars… could this be the way they fold the nations into a one-world government? China could come in and help Homeland Security subdue America. Arms will have to be outlawed.

  5. AndrewB

    Hi Greg,
    Great WNW – thanks!
    Of all the crazy geopolitical events happening right now, the most obvious fraud has to be the ludicrous accusation that Putin / Russia are guilty of the (alleged) attack on UK / Russian double-agent Skripal. That the UK government was so quick to lay the blame on Russia, their sole ‘evidence’ being that a nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union way back in the 1970s was used, removes any doubt that they are puppets of the criminal family banking dynasties. This is both alarming and depressing. In the UK Parliament on Wednesday during Prime Minister’s Questions, the leader of the opposition tried to raise questions about evidence and was shouted down. He was not even supported by the bulk of his own party. In short, the UK House of Commons was, almost to a man, baying for war. It was reminiscent of the build up to WWI, and the phony claims that Saddam Hussain could strike London with WMD in less than one hour – which justified the Iraq war. Why are apparently intelligent people incapable of learning the mistakes of history? I would encourage your viewers to review the information I am linking to. It’s written by a UK Barrister at Law and geopolitical analyst and raises serious questions about the official narrative re Skripal. Thank you.

      Yes,the UK parliament is baying for war with Russia. With 200 old tanks,verses 20,000 modern Russian tanks. 75 front line aircraft verses 3000 modern Russian fighter bombers. The royal navy with 2 aircraft carriers with no aircraft, plus 25 warships but no fuel or experienced crew to sail them , it looks like uncle Sam will be fighting the war for the UK all over again. We have more generals than tanks,more admirals than warships,more air marshalls than planes,and Theresa May and that clown Boris Johnson want a war with Russia. Hope your ready over there uncle Sam your services are needed again ?

    The reaction of Germany’s Merkel regime on this event is not surprising. Merkel is the most faithful vasall of the globalist elites imaginable. Her dubious past in the communist DDR made her the ideal puppet. The German propaganda machinery has shifted into hyperdrive, anti-russian lies and anti-trump propaganda around the clock.

      Colin,
      So you are good with being lied to when your government tells you there’s been a deal made?? Stupid. Listen to what I said. I would have loved a REAL DEAL with SIGNATURES.

        Greg…. totally a fair assessment as Contracts = Agreements= Treaties are per the Statues of Fraud are –REQUIRED to be in writing, signed and dated to be enforceable seems to be the accepted norm. Good Grief – Nuclear arms deals not even on a handshake? lol and with people with a long history of renigning? lol

        Signed or not signed the US has a very comprehensive history of only honouring deals/treaties as long as it suits its own purposes.

        The fact of the matter is the unsigned JCPA was working and all of the other five participants were happy with the outcome and yet the US still had to throw a spanner in the works.

        Not very clever from where I am standing I’m afraid.

          Col,
          Let stop pretending. This Iran no signature “deal” is a massive lie and a fraud–period–the end.

    The French philosopher Alain Soral once said… “journalists are either unemployed or prostitutes”
    …now ain’t that the truth…especially when it comes to the Western MSM and the disgraceful reporting on the Salisbury saga.

    Not sure what his role will be. After the collapse, a tax cut will seem meaningless. Might have made more sense about 10 trillion ago and before derivatives were invented, and shouldn’t have.

    A personal observation if you will.
    I have visited this site for a few years now, commenting occasionally. Even though I may disagree at times with Greg’s views, he has always been a gentleman in our back and forth, and I appreciate this.

    What I have noticed with the rise of Mr Trump to the ultimate office, is that USAWd has moved definitively into the Trump corner.

    Thus, it must cause some cognitive dissonance when the promise of Trump slips away week by week. This week is no exception. Throwing support behind May and an obvious bullshit narrative that could be used to foment a war ? Have we learned nothing from the Bush-Blair-Powell fiasco ? Is he need for war by the Empire and its vassal states so great , they just don’t care how stupid the reasons are?

    And how about REWARDING a top ranking CIA mandarin for her undeniable role in abusive torture/rendition program ?

    So lamentable that the people’s choice seems to be on the road of wholehearted support of the militaristic Empire he inherited.

    It really seems to suggest that all politicians are compromised eventually, and it’s wise to take a ‘wait n see’ approach to support.
