BOMBSHELL: FBI searched Russian diplomatic properties looking for EXPLOSIVES

This new revelation adds insult to illegal injury.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has revealed a shocking revelation that as US authorities, including the FBI searched Russian diplomatic and consular compounds in contravention of the Vienna Conventions, they were on a mission that was utterly surreal.

Zakharova has stated that the FBI agents were searching the compounds for explosive devices, something more common in the hideout of terrorist groups than in the embassies and consular properties of large states.

During an interview on Rossiya One television, Zakharova described the incident in the following way,

“By the way, do you know, what they were looking for – as we were told before the searches? You would not believe it – they were looking for explosives”.

She continued, stating that against what would have been a natural reaction of anger, the Russian representatives had to act calmly in the face of a grave insult in order to preserve a reputation of dignity in the face of great odds, so as not to be seen by US based MSM as “aggressive Russians”.

“Just try to imagine that you are being brainwashed for a year that an enemy is living overseas and this enemy is impacting your life and everything bad that might happen – the election of a president you don’t like – has been done by the Russians.

On September 2, black cars with FBI and State Department officers rolled up to our consulate general in San Francisco and they came into the building.

A day before, the directorate chief said that if the doors of our diplomatic compound, which is our property, were closed they would be broken. More to it, a car of a private company specialising in forcing open doors, locks and safes drove to our trade mission in Washington. We have posted this video in the internet.

I don’t know how our diplomats could find nerve enough to open the doors and be polite”.
The US actions against Russia not only contravene international law and historic diplomatic protocol, but the new revelation that the US authorities seriously thought that Russian diplomats were housing explosive devices in their properties is simply a ludicrous accusation with no bearing on reality.

Looking for something more incendiary than US foreign policy. Good luck with that.

Tenner says looking for explosives is code for blow something up and blame the Russians.

Of course Maria was shocked. But to the American mind brought up on a diet of Hollywood and whose CIA/State Dep routinely use diplomatic bags and flights to ship drugs & weapons and whose embassies are used as staging posts for colour revolutions and coups….well, it was a perfectly obvious thing to search for.
They only reveal themselves by their actions.

“Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has revealed a shocking revelation that as US authorities, including the FBI searched Russian diplomatic and consular compounds in contravention of the Vienna Conventions, they were on a mission that was utterly surreal.” — “Looking for explosives”. *** Why “surreal”? — Seriously, the Empire was only being true to itself. I am only surprised they did NOT “find” explosives there. What did Russia expect? To repeat, this is total war, i. e. by any and by all means possible. The imperial intimidation and blackmail will continue in an ever increasingly humiliating fashion for as… Read more »

The Guesstapo does not need to ‘find’ explosives. The mere fact that they looked for them will be repeated 1 million times by CIANN and the servile and mentally defective American people will ‘KNOW” that they were there.

I heard the Russians had enough explosives in their compound to blow up the new One World Trade Center and a set of plans to go with it. I got this from a good source because I have a friend who’s brother in law’s father used to be a janitor in the CIA’s summer rental cabin.

I believe that Russia ‘will put up with’ ‘increasingly humiliating’ intimidation and blackmail because, for them, they have reduced the fight to a game of chess, or judo. So, there is no humiliation. There are just moves and counter moves to avoid losing and to position themselves gradually to win.

Best wishes to them, for all our sakes. Don’t you think?

Jackboot diplomacy. No surprise, par for the course from the US of A.

As a recent commentator ironically put it. “Trump
promised isolationism. His generals, behind the scenes, have managed to
make this electoral promise come true, leaving Washington alone in the
international arena in the near term.”

Of course some still pretend to be friends of Washington.

End in Syria is near and that is especially painful for USAdistia. All the hullabaloo about NK can’t hide it. But taking it on diplomats is as low as it gets. Mr. Dumb is not only DOAT (POTUS), he is the one with least class as well.

Under the – now mortally-wounded – Vienna Convention, any country has a perfect right to stock its embassies with any type of explosives or weapon it desires, except nuclear – which are prohibited under a separate protocol.

America’s unconscionable and utterly despicable behaviour in this matter will have long-term negative consequences and should be stridently condemned by every law-abiding country on the planet.

The US committed and “act of terrorism” on its own soil against Russia. The definition of terrorism under US law: “(1) the term “international terrorism” means activities that— (A) involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or… Read more »

Adam, I’m not trying to be difficult but must ask, what’s the source of the claim that Maria says FBI sought explosives? I mean, did you watch the Channel One broadcast personally? I ask because a search reveals numerous duplications of this present post by you; but no other reference Maria’s statement about explosives appears. I would love to see her Channel One statement myself; but that’s impossible unless someone recorded and subtitled it for the people who cannot read or speak Russian language. Did you see it on TV? If not, who did? Many thanks for your help.

Russia’s economy continues to outperform as gold takes center stage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 118.

Alex Christoforou

Published

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how US and EU sanctions have continued to provide a huge boost to Russia’s economy. Russia’s food sovereignty has practically been achieved, as the Russian central bank continues to buy gold and lower its exposure to western financial markets.

Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, “the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society.”

“But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now – the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy,” he said.

“Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter,” Patrushev noted.

Those who apply the sanctions “can see that they (the sanctions – TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal,” the Russian security chief concluded.

US Neocon Foreign Policy and the War Waged Against Serbia

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign.

Richard Galustian

Published

The ‘witch-hunt’ against President Trump over Russian collusion has officially ended, following the submission of the Mueller Report, enabling us to now focus on the real problems of America that effects the whole world.

In the hope of a waining of the Russophobia in America, let’s look at the US’s recent war history by starting with the 20th anniversary this month of the NATO war on Serbia in 1999 which amounted to almost 100 days of bombing of historic cities and infrastructure.

Firstly, these problems are, in the main caused by the Neocons, or Deep State, whatever you wish to call them, and the continuing promotion, by the US Military-Security Industrial Complex, of wars and regime change and secondly, Trump’s unreserved support for Israel, regardless of war crimes they may continue to commit against the Palestinians.

Incredibly after that one sided unjust and illegal war that NATO executed, NATO has the audacity to invite Serbia to join it! Something that will never happen. What do they smoke in DC, in the Pentagon and Brussels based NATO?

To compound these overall problems, the US Military and Israeli Defence Forces collaborate on these US regime change policies on all continents evidenced most recently by the arrival of crack Israeli troops last month in Brazil, prepared to support an attack potentially by Brazil and Columbia on Venezuela.

As, has now come to be expected, America pursues its Venezuelan regime change with full main stream media (MSM) cooperation, using well proven sophisticated propaganda techniques along with a variety of pretexts.

From Serbia to Iraq to Libya, where does it end? Observe that Trump is now seeking a ‘NATO alliance’ offering NATO status, to President Bolsonaro of Brazil to back the invasion of Venezuela.

So it is important to remember, as an example, that after a long war of economic and financial destabilization ended with the bombing of Serbia.

Serbia was previously a part of Yugoslavia, a country which had successfully evolved after 1945 to solve the old rivalries of the 19th and early 20th Century Balkan ethnic animosities which was, prior to the advent of power of President Tito, its past history.

The United Nations, instead of supporting, in effect, so called ‘humanitarian wars’ and ‘regime change wars’ by the US, using NATO, helped and relentlessly driven home by MSM outlets like CNN and FOX NEWS into people’s heads, must finally take a stand.

So too, Yugoslavia, once the envy of many in the world, given its then ‘non-aligned’ status under President Tito, was destroyed and broken up; ‘Balkanized’ in the early 1990s.

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign. That’s what we can expect in Venezuela next.

This ‘Balkanization’ strategy similarly applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria et al. It serves US Neocon interests to dismember States in the world and create smaller more ‘manageable’ countries.

‘Regime change’ runs against the intent, the very words contained in the US Constitution. No one in MSM ever reminds us of that fact. Nevertheless America’s ambition to overthrow other States continues, which they arrogantly now make no secret of. The next States will probably be Nicaragua then Iran to name but two.

A very noteworthy most recent outrageous unilateral declaration was made by President Trump, not yet formally agreed by US institutions, ‘giving’ something he has no authority to give; Syrian territory, the Golan Heights to be precise, to Israel. Something that one day could trigger a full scale Arab-Israeli War.

This is of extreme importance yet no real outcry comes from world leaders; well not so far.

The main reason for that decision given by senior US Administration figures is that “God anointed Trump to save the Jews”.

Not forgetting Trump’s need (which we the people don’t understand exactly why) to support Prime Minister Netanyahu in his difficult upcoming elections in Israel – in part because both countries failed to ‘regime change’ Syria – but more importantly to help the ‘financial terrorists’ who formed a company jointly that has already started drilling for oil in the Golan Heights. You might like to know who owns such oil drilling company which should answer a plethora of questions in one go that you must be asking yourselves.

The shareholder’s names tells us everything; Dick Cheney; Baron Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch. The titular heads of neocons, bankers and media on the planet.

In ending there is no more evidence required for us, the people of the world, to rise up against the globalist dark forces wherever they exist, be it in Brussels, London, France or Washington. We must demand democratic elections or start revolutions, the latter has already begun in France in the form of ‘the yellow vests’. And Brexit, by definition, is a rejection by the British people of globalism and American Hegemony.

The pattern of US destabilization and destruction of States to loot them of their sovereign resources is the unseen history of the last 100 years, not taught in any university, anywhere in the West.

As far as Ukraine is concerned, its government was taken down by the CIA and replaced by an ultra fascist regime that has full backing from America. This is no secret. But the MSM simple don’t report it.

US led NATO is ‘the transnational war machine’ of the world, devouring almost all free countries wealth. It can extort to terrorize all into conformity to the global ‘carcinogenic’ US Neocon imperialistic strategy.

A total estimated 20m people around the world have died since the end of WW11 at the hands of US Forces. Think about that for a moment.

One of the most famous sayings attributed to America’s great President Abraham Lincoln is about deception: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU approves controversial copyright reform

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

RT

The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern everything from audiovisual content to memes, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

Article 13 or ‘The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market’ makes all platforms legally responsible for the content hosted and shared on their platforms.

The process of updating the bloc’s copyright laws began in the European Commission two years ago, ostensibly to protect Europe’s publishers, broadcasters and artists and guarantee fair compensation from big tech companies.

By essentially forcing companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to pay artists and publishers for the reproduction of their work online, include in meme format, the EU is effectively clamping down on online memery.

The onus will now be on tech companies to clamp down on content-sharing on their platforms, which will likely ensure yet more draconian policing of speech and content.

EU member states now have two years to pass their own laws putting Article 13 into effect.

Tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany ahead of the vote, decrying what they viewed as severe online censorship.

Tech giant Google said that while the directive is “improved” it will still lead to legal uncertainty and will damage Europe’s creative and digital economies.

Critics have argued that the only way for Article 13 to be effectively enforced would be through the use of upload filters which automatically check content to see if it’s copyrighted or not, at least in theory. However, the exact mechanics of such a system have yet to be fully debated and the potential for abuse is immediately clear.
