 Jeff Blankfort  
Blankfort reports on biggest NATO exercises since Cold War targeting Russia; points to irony of Obama in Poland urging weapons purchases when violence is occurring in US and killing of 5 Dallas cops by Army Afghan vet as 'chickens coming home to roost.; notes that NATO's leading European members would prefer to trade with than sanction Russia and German foreign minister calls NATO exercises 'saber-rattling'; PLAYS 4:14 speech of UK Brexit proponent, Nigel Farage, blasting US and Western intervention in the Middle East and Libya and supporting coup in Ukraine, poking Putin in the eye; A MUST LISTEN. Blankfort then compares UK Chilcot Inquiry over Iraq war with US indifference following Obama's 'pardoning' of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al for having launched the war as one of his first acts in office; reports critique of administration's under-reporting of civilians killed by US drones; on Rep. Barbara Lee's key vote to keep Democratic Platform from acknowledging Israel's occupation and condemning Israel's Jewish settlements, then gives an EXCLUSIVE REPORT on story censored by US media on development of close relations between Vladimir Putin and Bibi Netanyahu with Russia and Israel planning joint military and naval exercises; Blankfort notes that having demonized Putin, if US public sees Netanyahu embracing him, it is likely to question Israel's value as an ally. Blankfort then reads Phil Giraldi's latest article, out today on American Conservative, “Russian Harassment and Other Fables,” which explores how the US can't get over its antagonism towards Russia, having missed opportunities to exert positive influence following USSR's collapse, launching provocative actions against Russia that would not be tolerated if Russia did same to US..
