Moscow Threatens Response As NATO Encircles Russia,

Moscow threatens response as NATO encircles Russia 

American warships entering the Black Sea will prompt “response measures” from Moscow, a top Russian diplomat has warned, adding that another US aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean is clearly an attempt to show force ahead of an upcoming NATO summit.

The USS Porter (DDG-78), armed with assault cruise missiles and an Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System (primary weapon: Standard Missile 3), entered the Black Sea this week.
“American warships do enter the Black Sea now and then. Certainly, this does not meet with [Russia’s] approval and will undoubtedly lead to planning response measures,” Andrey Kelin, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s European Cooperation Department, told RIA Novosti on Friday.
He also disapproved of the deployment of the USS Harry S. Truman in the Mediterranean ahead of the NATO summit in Warsaw in July as muscle-flexing.

“There is nothing special about the movement of US vessels in this case. We know that aircraft carriers are moving in the Mediterranean Sea and elsewhere, they have a right to do so, this is freedom of navigation,” he said.
“But in general, this is a definite increase in [Russia-US] relations and all this is done ahead of the NATO summit in Warsaw – this is a demonstration of force,” he added.
The NATO summit will be held in Polish capital Warsaw on July 8-9, preceded by a series of large-scale war games in Eastern Europe and the Baltic states. The largest training exercise is taking place in Poland, where over 31,000 troops from 24 countries are taking part in NATO’s Anaconda 2016 war drills – the largest war games in Eastern Europe since the Cold War.
The Anaconda 2016 NATO military exercise involves 24 NATO and “partner nations,” including the US, the UK, Germany, Canada, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and others.
NATO has been signaling Moscow to hold another meeting ahead of the Warsaw gathering, although Russia is still considering the proposal and a final decision has not been made yet, Kelin said.
US-led NATO has been in more frequent contact with the Russian military following the disruption of relations that resulted from the reunification of the Crimea Peninsula with Russia in March 2014.
NATO decided to break off all contact with Russia in 2014, when Viktor Yanukovych was ousted as Ukraine’s president during the so-called Euromaidan riots. A NATO-Russia Council meeting was held in June 2014, but the council was then subject to a lengthy break and meetings have only recently restarted.

It’s not impossible, according to a new report from Telegraph, which cites the alarming statements from Robert Hannigan, the U.K.’s Government Communication Headquarters chief.
During a rare recent public appearance, at the Cheltenham Science Festival, he said there are nation states developing programs that could attack and shut down significant assets. For example, a major city.
Terrorist groups also are trying to acquire the expertise needed, he said.
“At some stage they will get the capability,” he said.
“There are certainly states and groups with the intent to do it, terrorist groups, for example, who have no threshold when it comes to the loss of life,” he said.
In a commentary at Jihad Watch, Christine Williams wrote, “In other words, they are killing machines and destructive without boundaries.”
She cited a few recent known threats from terrorists like the Islamic State.

For example, according to CNN there was the ISIS call to attack the West during the Islamic events of Ramadan.
And there was a Fox News report about a call in al-Qaida’s online magazine to jihadis to assassinate business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Or, as Williams wrote, “In the words of al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri: ‘The first matter is striking the West and specifically America in its own home, and attacking their interests that are spread everywhere.'”
Finally, the broad ISIS threat from 2014 that “the best thing you can do is to strive to your best and kill any disbeliever, whether he be French, American or from any of their allies.”
The commentary noted that it was most revealing that when the 2014 threat was issued, the U.K. Home Office “called the message ‘propaganda’ and called for Internet providers to pull it down.”
“Now the director of the U.K. Government Communication Headquarters has issued his warning about terrorists having ‘no threshold when it comes to life,” and that at the click of a button, our cities could be crippled,” the commentary continued.
But the Jihad Watch article pointed out that French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in 2014 “France is not afraid” of terrorists because it is “not the first time we have been threatened by terrorist groups that attack our values of tolerance, humanism, respect for human rights and democracy.”

The Bilderberg meeting in Dresden Germany is receiving a good deal of publicity, unlike in times past.
The above excerpt from a TIME magazine post is symptomatic, astonishingly, of mainstream media coverage.
The UK Independent, the Guardian, various American publications and Drudge have all featured the ongoing meeting from June 9-12.
Unlike in years past, Western media is covering the conference.
The coverage is somewhat bland. Not so the coverage of the alternative media.
The alternative ‘Net media makes it distrust of the conference and attendees clear.
The Internet itself has exposed the structure of a secretive world order focused on building corporate-run globalism.
It is apparently a banking conspiracy funded by endless amounts of central bank cash.
Those running it are not making much of an attempt to hide themselves any longer.
Having been exposed, they are now using the Internet to spy on the general public. And they are doing it in an obvious way to intimidate.
This is a change of direction. It emphasizes intimidation over secrecy. Incipient violence over privacy.
The message of continued Bilderberg meetings is clear, and it is confrontational.
It is part of a larger pattern.
The world’s elite controllers have their own culture and religious rituals. Increasingly, these are being publicly displayed.
The recent opening of a huge Swiss tunnel was accompanied by a ceremony of a man in a goat costume.
And in both Britain and the US, Satanic temples are raising their profile.
The continued presence of Bilderberg is just one more indication that banking elites do not intend to hide anymore.
Perhaps in this Internet era, they don’t believe it’s possible.
Conclusion: Inevitably, this will generate more controversy and confrontation. The tools of globalism are increasingly being brought to the fore. These include war and economic destruction. And unfortunately, this year in Dresden Germany, Bilderberg is probably planning both.

Half a world away from American suburbia, Christians and other Middle East minority populations are facing extinction from Islamic terror groups such as the Islamic State. At the same time, Israel, the world’s lone Jewish state, deals with the organized terrorism of Hamas and Hezbollah as well as so-called “lone wolf” Palestinian terrorists. While these events may seem too distant for most Americans, residents of the Boston suburb of Stoughton, Mass., got a crash course on global dangers as part of an inventive interfaith event at a local synagogue last week.

The event—titled “Jews, Evangelicals, Israel—We Are in This Together: Evangelical Support for Israel and the Fight against the Genocide of Christians in the Middle East”—featured Dr. Tricia Miller and Dexter Van Zile, Christian media analysts for the Boston-based Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), who addressed an audience of Jews and Christians about the ongoing Middle East threats and efforts to undermine Christian support for Israel.
“At this moment in history, both Jews and Christians are the primary targets of evil. Our interest in survival is not simply individual. If history has taught us anything, it is this: what begins with the Jews, never ends with the Jews,” Hausman told
Hausman noted that Ahavath Torah not only serves local Jews, but also the Faith4Life Church, a mainly African-American church that is associated with the Michigan-based World of Faith International Christian Center. Several evangelical Christians were in attendance May 31, including Hausman’s close friend Pastor David Marquard of Impact Church in Cranston, R.I., who even led an interfaith prayer at the conclusion of the event.
In their remarks, both Van Zile and Miller spoke about efforts to undermine evangelical Christian support for Israel.

Miller, who is an evangelical Christian, voiced concern about the Bethlehem Bible College’s biannual “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference. She explained that the conference tries to convey the message that Israel is unworthy of Christian support because it is the homeland for the Jews—the people who rejected Jesus as their messiah.
