A Vital Update From Batchelor and Cohen

Wed, Jun 15, 2016 - 8:38am

Not since 1941 has a potential adversary posted troops along Russia's western border but that's exactly what NATO is planning for later this summer. This dramatic escalation of The New Cold War is an extremely dangerous development. Please be sure to listen to this week's update from Batchelor and Cohen.

Here are the notes from Mr. Batchelor's site on this provocative new move by NATO:

“…We will agree to deploy by rotation four robust multinational battalions in the Baltic states and in #Poland,” said the Secretary General. He underlined that these battalions are part of a much bigger shift in NATO’s defence and deterrence posture, including a larger #NATO Response Force, a new Spearhead Force and 8 new small headquarters in the eastern part of the Alliance. “All together this strikes the right balance between a greater ability to reinforce, and boost our forward presence,” he added.

NATO has also taken action to ensure that Allied troops can move faster across Europe, for exercises or reinforcements, if needed. “Last month, the Spearhead Force conducted an exercise which showed how far we have come. One thousand troops and four hundred military vehicles moved from #Spain to #Poland within four days,” said Mr. Stoltenberg. He stressed that NATO will continue to work to improve freedom of movement for Allied troops and equipment, because speed can make the difference when a crisis emerges.

The Secretary General underscored that Allies must spend more on defence to sustain this shift in NATO’s defence posture. He highlighted that, following a long decline in defence spending, 2015 was the first year after many when the Alliance registered a small increase in defence spending. “Our estimates for 2016 show a further increase,” said Mr. Stoltenberg. The annual real change stands at around 1.5 percent, an increase of over 3 billion dollars, with twenty Allies planning to spend more on defence in real terms this year. “So this is real progress. After many years of going in the wrong direction, we are starting to go into the right direction,” he said.

We are all indebted to John and Steve for their tireless commitment to sharing this information. They've been at it for 30 months now...diligently chronicling the escalating New Cold War each and every Tuesday and, without their efforts, we'd all be deep in the dark regarding the true nature of the situation.

Pray for peace, de-escalation and that one day cooler heads may prevail.

@amarula4  Im in too minds -

@amarula4 Im in too minds - if you'd have asked me a week ago id have agreed with you 100%...i think it comes down to how close it actually is. IMO the MSM is doing everything they can to suppress the swing to leave (for example, the BT poll which showed an 80% swing which disappeared, the FT which refused to include one from a few days ago which showed a 13% swing to leave on their tracker) IF, and yes its an if, the swing is big enough they might not be able to fix it.

Just listed to the jackass discussing this, he thinks fixing wont buy remain anything more than about 5%... and i tend to respect jim's authority on these kind of things. (Interview here btw - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qHoXeNa_xE&feature=youtu.be )

Even if that's true though, they could throw the vote out on any number of technicalities.. not least the extension of the voting deadline, which, in theory was very shaky in legal terms.

Im crossing my fingers.... and my toes...

Bulletin of American Scientists

Stephen didn't do his homework and as is the case when anyone fails to verify a key fact, it taints the quality of the entire presentation. The Dooms Day Clock has not been moved from 3 minutes to 2 minutes before Midnight (as Stephen 'thought"). It remains at 11:57. Just for the record.

ps. I am really pissed the MSM is ignoring NATO buildup and movement. We stumble blindly toward war and Armageddon.

Here in Holland the NATO buildup is presented by out secretary of defence (war) as "The Baltic states are scared of Russian aggression so we are sending military aid"

9-11 and WTC7

I want one person that believes the official version of 911 to tell me how WTC 7 collapsed. Not answering 911 thoroughly is why we're sitting here listening to Batchelor and Cohen in the first place.

How would you like one of these dropped somewhere in the USA because too many people were afraid or lazy to question the events of 911.

Russia to counter NATO buildup in Eastern Europe – Duma official — RT Russian politics

People are entitled to believe what they want. But when your belief system ( or cognitive dissonance in this case ) might get me killed. Sorry...I take exception.

9/11 and was seen or not seen.

I saw the plane on my TV, too, Craig along with all of the thousands of others.

What no one saw was a plane flying into the Pentagon which would be at least as interesting as the theories on WTC7!

There would have been many folks around who would have had a great perspective on this particular part of that fateful day (imagine all those locked in traffic, all around the Pentagram) who would have nothing better to do than watch a plane do what was claimed. But no one was a witness to this? Where was the installed pentagon air defense system on that day and why didn't it intervene? All we get to believe in is a single blurred image of something coming in at a high rate of speed .. I guess all of the other cameras covering all of the other angles around that building were all distracted by pretty girls or turned off for maintenance?

Too many questions, not enough believable answers.

If there is anyone who believes anything other than that 9/11 was a FalseFlag event - engineered by the ZioCons - then they are either willfully blind (one has to ask why) or just plain bloody fools. FFS - do some investigation and open your bloody matrix-ensnared minds. There is absolutely no effing doubt is was a FalseFlag. Period.

And this wee presentation by Ken O'Keefe should help you too:

Actually, it's the other way around

The onus is upon YOU. If you actually believe that your own government is responsible for the deaths of 3,000 of its citizens on 9/11, then what have YOU done to inspire change/revolt. YOU should be taking every step possible to see that those responsible for the crime are charged, convicted and executed. What steps have YOU taken to effect this change over the past 15 years. Have YOU gone to Washington and protested on Capitol Hill? Have YOU demanded investigations from your elected representatives?

Do NOT tell me that I AM part of the problem. The onus is on YOU, instead. If YOU truly believe the 9/11 conspiracies, it is YOUR responsibility to take action, not just bang your keyboard.

Taking action...

Hi guys,

Nobody's blaming anyone for anything here, although there is apparently a wide variety of beliefs regarding the integrity of our government.

I personally have no respect for authority whatsoever, since I tend to govern myself. Taking on the United States government, which is provably the largest crime syndicate, and terrorist organization on planet earth, and in history of mankind, would be a foolish thing to do.

This doesn't get solved by armed conflict, that's exactly what they want. And even a best case scenario, would mean replacing one set of megalomaniacal demonic psychopaths, with another group of power-hungry, easily corruptible narcissists.

Have you ever heard the old adage

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”?

Why does humanity keep giving over its power to a bunch of parasitic sycophants whose only function in life is to enslave the very people who put them there?

There is genuine truth to the statement that "all men are created equal”, but it is often misinterpreted.

It simply means there are no rulers, and there are slaves. Human beings were designed to govern themselves.

We are individually sovereign, whether we know it or not.

The entire notion of putting men in charge of other men is where humanity derails itself each and every time it tries.

It is the source of most of the evil on this planet.

There is no need for a ruling class, and there is only one rule. The golden rule.

Treat others the way you like to be treated. Why complicat it?

To say that the US government is responsible for the 3000 deaths on 9/11 only scratches the surface. What about the millions that have died in foreign wars since?

Throughout history, governments have always turned against their own citizenry. There are literally thousands of examples.

Why would you believe that our particular government is different from any other? It's only been better at hiding the truth than most, but even the façade is beginning to fall.

Craig, you ask a good question.

"What can we do about it?

It starts with taking responsibility for your own life, and teaching others to do the same. There is no top-down solution to this problem, even if I could hypothetically arrest the entire government, and hang them from lampposts until dead, if humanity still thinks that authority figures are required, they will simply be replaced.

I don't pay taxes, I have an accountant that is highly skilled at making sure I have no taxable income. I don't pay the confiscatory fees for permits and licenses either.

I deal with people on a one on one basis, voluntarily exchanging goods and services with each other. I make sure the government is kept out of the loop.

I have a court case coming up next week, where I fully intend to take on a corrupt and entrenched power structure locally. Win or lose, I will give it my best effort.

People tend to think they can't do anything about this, because successfully arresting the president of United States seems to be only a pipe dream. The other obvious problem, is that the entire United States Government has been overthrown by the very banking cabal keeping our precious gold and silver range bound.

I know you firmly believe that 9/11, and other false flag operations have nothing to do with the price of gold and silver. I disagree.

Once you get to know the characters involved, and their motivations, and why all markets are nothing but an illusion, you can begin to start making sense of this world.

Humanity has been under mind control for thousands of years. Ideas that I have expressed above seem so outrageous, and so far outside of the mainstream, that they are not taken seriously without investigation.

The fact of the matter is, the truth is simply unbelievable to those who do not take the time to study such things.

When I say gold and silver will be range bound until after a systemic collapse, it's because I'm not looking at charts and graphs, I'm looking at the players involved, and their goals.

When I say that if voting mattered at all, it would be illegal, it is simply to express the reality that we actually have no say whatsoever in our governance, except to refuse to acknowledge it as legitimate.

There is a strategy, and a way out of this mess, but it will have to start with the Individual beliefs of humanity, and not simply changing the puppet, or the puppetmaster.

So in reality, I am doing whatever I can about this crap, every single day.


I am profoundly grateful for the website that you have established, which gave rise to the opportunity to engage in hundreds of conversations with like minded individuals.

Mustering up the courage to challenge overt corruption is a process, one that I have been engaging myself in for quite sometime.

Simply by shining the light of truth on these demonic bastards, their power over us is eviscerated.

Sometimes pounding on my keyboard does have positive results.

They're just not readily apparent to onlookers who don't know the strategy that I've adopted.

Knowledge is power.

.... you have made hasty presumptions - which are incorrect:

1. the YOU was not aimed at you - it was a general you.

2. I do all in my power to persuade whoever will listen, not only about 9/11 - but about the whole damn business - starting at usury, continuing through the Rothschilds and trying to educate people that bitcoin is NOT a plaything - is is a very real instrument with which we CAN bypass (? overthrow) this whole damn corrupt system. My actions include and continue to include protest and numerous letters to members of Parliament (I am resident in the UK). My every waking minute is pre-occupied with this quest.

3. I will not respond with personal attacks.
