Moscow accuses Budapest of supplying tanks to Ukraine

Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry issued a statement on the Hungarian media story regarding the sale of tanks by Budapest to Ukraine, calling them illegal. The statement was posted on Friday, August 15 on the official website of the Ministry.

By supplying weapons to Ukraine, EU member states violate a legally binding document – Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Article 6(2) of the Treaty “prohibits transfers of such weapons and items where the transfer would violate a State Party’s relevant international obligations under international agreements to which it is a Party, in particular those relating to the transfer of, or illicit trafficking in, conventional arms”, Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry said. Hungary is a signatory to ATT.

More confirmation that Ukraine did buy those surplus T-72 tanks from Hungary, undermining the corporate media’s attempts to claim that T-72s seen in Eastern Ukraine “had to be” Russian because Ukraine has none at all.

Needless to say, I have not received a reply from BBC to the complaint I filed regarding the accuracy of their story.

Cable collaborator: BT accused of aiding US drone strikes

The British government has been asked to investigate whether the country’s major provider of telecommunications networks and services, BT, is aiding US drone strikes.

According to a complaint filed by the charity group Reprieve, BT has built a military internet cable connecting US air force facilities in Northamptonshire to a base for unmanned craft in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa.

The human rights group alleges that the $23 million (£13 million) fiber-optic circuit built by BT in 2012 was installed to facilitate air strikes in Yemen and Somalia by US Air Force drones.

KIEV PURCHASED HUNGARIAN T-72 TANKS TO FRAME RUSSIA!

Egy szemfüles olvasónk küldte be az alábbi fotókat, melyek a nyíregyházi vasútállomáson készültek augusztus 2-án. A közölt információk szerint a vasúti szerelvény Záhony felé tartott, ahol átlépte Ukrajna felé az államhatárt. A képek érdekessége, hogy ezeken valaha a Magyar Honvédség állományába tartozó T-72-es közepes harckocsik láthatóak.

BUMP TO THE TOP

I will save you the time of going to Google Translate. A couple of weeks ago, Ukraine bought some old T-72′s from Hungary for 8,500 dollars each, their value as scrap metal. Now Ukraine does not use the T-72, it uses the later t-80 and t-84. But Russia still uses the T-72.

Did Ukraine buy these tanks to plant near the border and frame Russia for an invasion?

These photos were made in Nyíregyháza railway station on August 2. Train headed to Záhony and crossed the state border to the Ukraine.

UPDATE: Yes, that was the plan. Today the BBC (Buggering British Children), the news network that reported the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 twenty six minutes BEFORE it actually happened, is showing photos of T-72s painted with Russian markings in Eastern Ukraine and insisting this is proof of a Russian invasion.

Please post this information everywhere you see the story that “Russian” tanks have been found in eastern Ukraine.

Hungary Sells T-72 Tanks to…?

The right-wing Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita believes that the tanks are destined for Ukraine, which has been looking for compatible second-hand Soviet-era equipment that they can use right away.

Hungary sells tanks in Ukraine

In the Hungarian media appeared kinda stuff. An eyewitness took off at the railway station of the Nyíregyháza with tanks on their way towards the city Zahon where the railway crossing from Hungary to Ukraine. Platforms – T-72 tanks, which are armed with the Hungarian army.

The Australian Liberal Party government has been yelling terrorism and playing wag the terrorist all over Australia in past weeks , trying to scare the Australian people and soften them up for what sounds more and more like the government’s intention to send more young Australian troops to Iraq. It is probably true that the Australian Special Forces, the SAS, already has troops in Iraq and Syria. The government is also cynically using the Iraq mess to try and take the minds of the Australian people off its own chaotic and pig headed incompetence and falling popularity at home.

There is no direct security threat from ISIS to Australia. Waves of ISIS fighters are not coming over the hill to bomb and kill Australians. The security danger lays with any radicalised Australian citizens who are fighting in the Middle East who intend to return to Australia, and the government intends to direct the arrest and possible charging of such citizens who try to return to Australia or leave Australia to engage in fighting in Iraq and Syria.

At the same time as this war mongering ultra conservative and tricky government is laying plans to send young Australians into a war again, it is planning to reduce the pensions of Australia’s war veterans, ex Service members, Defence Force members, War widows and the orphans of War Veterans. The PM consistently lies on the floor of the Parliament and deceives the Australian Parliament and people when he denies these plans are in place , plans which will see the changed indexation of Veteran and other pensions reduce these pensions over time in dollar value and purchasing power.

You can bet not one member of the government will send their kids or grandkids to any future troop deployment to Iraq. In a nutshell their kids are a protected species and the lack of courage on the part of these war mongers in Canberra is palatable. They are people who have never been to war but who are willing to see your kids and grandkids killed just so that they can appear macho and tough on the international political stage and just so that they can embarrass Australian even further by sucking up to the militaristic Americans.

PM Abbott has been yelling genocide in Iraq and that Australia must help, but he has not made a grunt on the genocide of the Gazans who have been slaughtered by the Zionist Israelis. He has not grunted because the government is scared pantless of retribution from the Zionist lobby in Australia and at the UN.

We really do have some very gutless, criminal and unprincipled opportunists in Parliament House Canberra who will do and say anything to retain power and money for themselves.

Sending more young Australian troops to Iraq will backfire and lose the government votes because more and more Australians are opposed to such adventurism and more and more Australians are aware of the lies which led us into Iraq in 2003.

Netanyahu faces revolt over truce with Hamas

Benjamin Netanyahu was facing a cabinet revolt on Wednesday over his decision to agree a ceasefire with Hamas amid widespread scepticism that either Israel or the Palestinians had gained anything from the 50-day conflict.

Right-wingers attacked the Israeli prime minister for concluding an indefinite truce without submitting the matter to a vote in the security cabinet and – more significantly – without apparently coming close to defeating Hamas militarily.

The anger of Mr Netanyahu’s Right-wing rivals – such as Avigdor Lieberman, the foreign minister, and Naftali Bennett, the economy minister – was compounded by the triumphalism of the Hamas leadership, who crowed that fighting a better-armed enemy for seven weeks represented a moral victory.

The Australian government wants to become a branch of the US NSA spy agency and spy on all Australians, whether they are suspects in crimes or not, and whether they are criminals or not. If the Australian government gets its way, ISPs and Telcos will be forced by Law to keep all records of all phone conversations, emails and web history of all Australians for two years. This will cost money, so it may mean an increase in phone costs and internet costs. Somebody has to pay for this intended policy.

The government is using the worn out “terrorist “excuse and slimy balm to try and spy on all innocent Australians, including their online banking and other financial activities and very personal contacts with those they love. Big, BIG brother is finally on the march in Australia. The truth is that Australian police, security agencies and spy agencies currently have all the power they need and more to monitor the activities of criminals and those suspected of crime, on the basis of evidence, without further powers. In Australia it has been Law for years that suspects can, for example, be whisked away in the middle of the night and be held indefinitly without charge, and without their families knowing where they are and without access to legal representation. This is similar to the Fascist behaviour of the NAZI Gestapo secret police, the Soviet Communist secret police and the Communist East German Stasi secret police.

Be very, very careful what power you give to politicians because they will always want more. This above policy intention is coming from the Liberal Party of Australia which publicly prides itself on standing for individual rights, less state intrusion into our lives and smaller government…………………….KT

Ebola outbreak: Airlines stop flights as US expert warns outbreak will ‘worsen’

Air France’s decision came a day after British Airways said it was suspending flights to Liberia and Sierra Leone until next year due to Ebola concerns.

EU to ban high-energy hair dryers, smartphones and kettles

The European Union is considering pulling the plug on high-wattage hair dryers, lawn mowers and electric kettles in a follow up to its controversial ban on powerful vacuum cleaners.

The power of hairdryers could be reduced by as much as 30 per cent in order to be more eco-friendly, a draft study commissioned by Brussels suggests, threatening many of the models favoured by hairdressers and consumers for speedy blow-dries.

New proposals are expected next spring to outlaw dozens of household electrical devices that European officials regard as using too much electricity, as part of plans to meet EU targets on energy efficiency.

Israel-Gaza conflict: No victory for Israel despite weeks of devastation Palestinians have won: they are still in Gaza

ell, no. In fact, Hamas – the vicious, horrible, terrorist Hamas with whom “we” (as in “the West”, Tony Blair, Israel, the US and all honourable men and women) cannot talk – has indeed won a victory.

Israel said it must be disarmed. It has not been disarmed. Israel said it must be smashed/destroyed/rooted out. It hasn’t been smashed/destroyed/rooted out. The tunnels must all be destroyed, Israel proclaimed. But they haven’t been. All the rockets must be seized. But they haven’t been. So 65 Israeli soldiers died – for what? And from under the ground, quite literally, clambered on Tuesday the political leadership of Hamas (and Islamic Jihad) whose brothers were participating – much against the wishes of Israel, the US and Egypt – in the Cairo “peace” talks.

In Israel, significantly, there were no celebrations.

Ukraine Parliament Fight 2014 : Massive Brawl Erupts in Ukraine Parliament | 22 July 2014

Let’s set the record of events clear for the Ukraine. Up until a year or so ago Ukrainians were living together without widespread violence and civil war. For generations Ukraine has consisted mainly of ethnic local Ukrainians, and Russian ethnics who settled in the Ukraine generations ago. Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union until its collapse in 1991. The history of Europe is a soup of changing borders, ethnic migrations, cross border breeding, political and ethnic rivalries and contested political philosophies. This has been the case for thousands of years. Recently a coup de tat was staged in Ukraine where the democratically elected government was physically thrown out of office and the elected President sought asylum in Russia, where he presently resides. The result was that the current junta, led by self proclaimed President Poroshenko, decaled it is the government, without going to the people. The unelected Ukrainian government was and is supported by the USA, Britain, Australia and other but not all western governments.

Ethnic Russians in the Eastern Ukraine were not happy with this coup and began rebelling and continue to do so. The East Ukrainians probably receive moral and tangible support from Russia and it is provable that the western Ukrainians receive US moral and tangible support at least, and probably British support as well.

Australia must keep its nose out of this European civil war and must call for peace and dialogue as the head of the UN Security Council. Australia must never again become embroiled in any European conflict or messy political fight. The behaviour of Australian PM Tony Abbott and the Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has been disgraceful since the downing of flight MH17 over the Ukraine. Abbott has been extremely wild and mischevious in his public statements and has in effect publicly called Russian President Putin a murderer and Bishop too has been hysterical and irresponsible. Both form part of a government which was elected around 10 months ago and which is way down already in the polls and the wild accusations, extreme far right statements and talk can only be seen as attempts to curry political favour at home and win back support. There will probably be some bounce in the polls for the government as it pulls at the emotional heart strings of the Australian people but this matter is not what the people will vote on in 2017, or whenever the next election is called. It maybe that we go to a double dissolution after all, using the backdrop of the tragedy of dead Australians in the Ukraine. Who know.

Finally, NOBDODY at this point in time, apart from the perpetrators, yet knows who was responsible for the downing of MH17.

KT

A similar case can be argued for many other politicians around the world. Being a politician and being sane are not necessarily synonymous. Just have a look at some of the nut cases in the various Australian Parliaments. The truly frightening thing is that these insane politicians think they are sane and intelligent and that they do good for the people.There should be a psychological test of all political candidates to assess their suitability for political office and government. The Australian Defence Force always psych tests potential recruits. Why not political parties?…………KT

WHO’S AFRAID OF THE BIG, BAD BOYCOTT?

Let’s start with the conclusion: Israeli exports are not affected by the present economic boycott, nor will they be affected in the future. This is not because certain European consumer groups and the like are not trying – it is because the unique nature of Israel’s exports simply does not allow for it. It’s a logical concept on paper, but simply does not hold water in reality.

The most obvious example of how the boycott concept is unsustainable is Israel’s trade relations with Turkey. In 2010, after Cast Lead, and the Mavi Marmara incident in particular, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan (who is now trying to change the laws in his country in order to become something akin to a sultan) demanded a boycott of Israel at every opportunity.

And lo and behold – just the opposite has happened. Trade relations with Turkey, both exports and imports, have jumped dramatically and are now at the highest level – and almost 100% rise since 2009, long before the Mavi Marmara.

It was the British establishment which sold out the Arab and Palestinian people to the Zionists, which resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Ignoring the fact that local Arab populations had supported the British during both world wars, particularly the Arabs and Bedouins who served with Lawrence of Arabia during WW1, the British establishment produced the Balfour Declaration which secretly promised world Zionism a base for their barbaric and hate filled culture, and that base was in Palestine. Lawrence himself was disgusted by the behaviour and policies of his own government.

Before the arrival of the Zionists, Jew and Muslim had lived happily side by side for generation after generation in Palestine.

It is highly probable that many of these kids will grow up hating the west, not because we are free, but because they have been bombed, killed and maimed even before they begin life.

These kids are tomorrow’s radicals and militants waiting in the wings, and you don’t have to be an Einstein to see why they will end up hating all we stand for………………KT

MEGA BEX ALERT – Ukraine crisis: T-72 tank shoots hole in Russian denial

It is operated by the Russian Army in large numbers, but crucially it is not known to have been exported or operated outside of Russia.

The BBC (Buggering British Children), the news network that reported the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 twenty six minutes BEFORE it actually happened, is shoveling another load of propaganda at us. Only two weeks ago, HIDFO.NET reported that Kiev had purchased several T-72 tanks from Hungary that were in such poor condition they were sold for their value as scrap metal. I predicted at the time that Kiev was going to paint Russian markings on them and use them to claim Russia was invading.

And here we are!

Needless to say, BBC is not allowing comments on this story! Don;t want to confuse the poor readers with the actual facts, and all that.

State Department to hike renunciation fees to US$2,350; says “no public benefit” in respecting human right to change nationality

Confirming reports passed on by commenters at the Isaac Brock Society, DiploPundit points to a State Department interim rule just placed on public inspection for printing in tomorrow’s Federal Register, which raises the fee for renunciation of U.S. citizenship (but apparently not relinquishment) to US$2,350, more than twenty times the average level in other high-income countries. As they state:

[D]emand for the service has increased dramatically, consuming far more consular officer time and resources, as reflected in the 2012 Overseas Time Survey and increased workload data. Because the Department believes there is no public benefit or other reason for setting this fee below cost, the Department is increasing this fee to reflect the full cost of providing the service. Therefore the increased fee reflects both the increased cost of the provision of service as well as the determination to now charge the full cost.

Three of the four withdrawn updates are still withdrawn and two of those are also subject to the missing window bug.

How Fox News Promoted One of the Most Bogus Ferguson Smears So Far

It wasn’t long before Fox News was pushing a new narrative: Michael Brown wasn’t just the latest in a depressingly long line of unarmed young black men to be gunned down by a white cop. He was a thug, they suggested, a criminal who deserved what he got, because he posed a deadly threat to Officer Wilson.

This was proven, Fox News reported with an unnamed source, because “the officer had sustained a fractured eye socket in the incident.” Ann Coulter even suggested, incorrectly,that we’d seen X-rays of the fracture. Fox went on to claim “solid proof” of a battle between Wilson and Brown for the officer’s handgun.

It was not long, of course, before CNN and others disproved such bogus claims. But how did such fiction make it all the way to an outlet as major, if intellectually challenged, as Fox News?

He lied saying his visit was “to stop the bloodshed and to start the process of finding a political compromise. The interests of the people of Donbass should and will be taken into account.”
His actions speak louder than words. Peace is an executive decision away. He can make it by calling off his dogs. He can choose diplomacy over confrontation. He can order a ceasefire. He can do so straightaway. He can meet face-to-face with Southeastern Ukrainian leaders. He can respect their democratic credentials. He can listen to their demands.

OSCE shares Moscow’s concerns over Ukraine’s nuclear deal with US

The head of the OSCE and Swiss president Didier Burkhalter says he is concerned about nuclear safety in connection with the US intention to supply the country with nuclear fuel, according to a reply letter to Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Industry Vladimir Gutenev.

It certainly makes the US position regarding Iran seem hypocritical!

Hate Speech from a Christian (sic) Organization

The demand conveyed in the above box is plastered on top of the most non-Christian web site on the internet: CUFI, Christians United for Israel. Would that it would read: Christians United for Isolation of Israel, then it would offer a Christian message of a peaceful means to stop genocide in Palestine. The very thought that an organization could call itself Christian and demand that Christians support the wanton slaughter of children and mothers and fathers caught like animals in a cage and mercilessly shot to death borders on the actions of human madness. What ministers of god would dare such mendacity in Christ’s name? How abhorrent.

Bill Gates Sets His Sights on the NRA

Things are about to get interesting for the National Rifle Association: Bill Gates has set his sights on the NRA and their opposition to stricter gun control.

Whenever Bill Gates gets involved in politics or social issues, the world tends to sit up and take note. Things should be no different now that he’s chosen to donate $1 million to Initiative 594, which would impose a mandatory criminal background check for every firearm purchase, regardless of where it’s sold.

There’s no doubt that the NRA and the rest of the gun lobby has a great deal of power on their side, but Gates is hardly the first activist to throw his weight behind efforts to oppose them. Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, has also vowed to take part in gun control campaigns.

Israel lobby eliminates another critic

The United States, wallowing in arrogance and hubris, pretends to be “the world’s sole superpower,” the “exceptional and indispensable nation” chosen by history to exercise hegemony over the world.

In truth, the US is the two-bit punk puppet of the Israel Lobby. If the Zionist government orders Washington to eat dog excrement, Washington eats it.

Not even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Military could get the facts acknowledged that Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, which made casualties of most of the crew, was not a “mistake,” but the intentional act of destruction of a US Navy vessel and its crew.

Not even state universities in the hinterlands of America are independent of the Israel Lobby, which can determine tenure and hiring decisions independently of the decisions of faculty and deans.

40 Holocaust survivors condemn ‘massacre’ of Palestinians, call for BDS against Israel

40 survivors of the Holocaust signed the letter and 287 descendants of victims also added their names.

A group of Holocaust survivors and descendants of those targeted by Nazi Germany have harshly criticized Israeli actions in Gaza and called for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

Following a letter from survivors of the Holocaust printed in the New York Times on Saturday, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, which helped coordinate the letter, organized a press call Monday, where some of those who signed the letter spoke out against the assault on Gaza.

Fake Al Qaeda Actors EXPOSED! Adam Gadahn & Yousef al-Khattab

MEGA PUKE FACTOR 9.9 BEX ALERT – Al Qaeda magazine hints of looming attack; urges bombing of Vegas, military targets

A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent.

This is signaling a new false flag. First off, the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, is a known propaganda front, as they have in previous issues featured Adam Gadahn, the “American Al Qaeda” on their cover. Adam Gadahn is a known fake. His real name is Adam Pearlman and he is the grandson of a member of the board for the ADL. But every major corporate media outlet is running this story without question, trying to scare us all into agreeing to more wars waged across the globe, even though this present story reeks of stolen Kuwaiti incubators and Saddam’s nuclear weapons!

The Time Is Ripe For A False-Flag Attack On American Soil

Brandon Smith
Activist Post

Government engineered false-flag terrorism is a historically established fact. For centuries, political and financial elites have been sinking ships, setting buildings on fire, assassinating diplomats, overthrowing elected leaders, and blowing people up, then blaming these disasters on convenient scapegoats so that they can induce fear in the public and transfer more power to themselves.

Skeptics might argue whether certain calamities have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be false-flag events, but no one can argue that such tactics have not been used by the establishment in the past. Governments have openly admitted to creating bloody and catalyzing tragedies under false pretenses, like Operation Gladio, a false-flag program in Europe supported by European and American covert agencies which lasted decades, from the 1950s to the 1990s…

“These are war crimes,” says father of Gaza family wiped out by Israeli airstrike

An elder cousin daubed the blood that dripped from a wound near Thaer Jouda’s left eye Tuesday afternoon as the nine-year-old lay in a bed in Gaza City’s al-Shifa hospital.

“He’s very good in English,” the cousin said. But Thaer, his face and body lacerated by shrapnel from an Israeli airstrike on Sunday and his right leg amputated at the knee, had little interest in talking.

The bombing, which injured Thaer and his eleven-year-old sister Rahaf, also killed his mother Rawiya (43 years old), his sisters Tasnim (14) and Raghida (13) and his brothers Muhammad (8) and Usama (6).

The five deaths made the Joudas, residents of Tal al-Zaatar in the northern Gaza Strip’s Jabaliya area, one of the hardest-hit of the 91 families counted by the Palestinian Ministry of Health who lost multiple members during single attacks during Israel’s 51-day military offensive.

Poll: Israel didn’t win Gaza war, Netanyahu still best choice for PM

More than half of Israelis said in a poll conducted Wednesday that neither Israel nor Hamas have emerged victorious from the fighting in Gaza, even as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel has secured a “great military and political” achievement and dealt Hamas a “heavy blow.”

Elizabeth Warren finally speaks on Israel/Gaza, sounds like Netanyahu

The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one of her regularly scheduled “office hours” with her Massachusetts constituents, this one in Hyannis, and, as a local paper reported, she had nowhere to run.

One voter who identified himself as a Warren supporter, John Bangert, stood up and objected to her recent vote, in the middle of the horrific attack on Gaza, to send yet another $225 million of American taxpayer money to Israel for its “Iron Dome” system. Banger told his Senator: “We are disagreeing with Israel using their guns against innocents. It’s true in Ferguson, Missouri, and it’s true in Israel . . . The vote was wrong, I believe.” To crowd applause, Bangert told Warren that the money “could have been spent on infrastructure or helping immigrants fleeing Central America.”

It’s happening! “Friend of Israel” just became an election liability!

Lebanese soldier killed in renewed Arsal clashes

One Lebanese soldier was killed Thursday during renewed clashes with militants on the outskirts of the northeastern border region of Arsal, while Lebanon’s interior minister confirmed that another soldier was missing.

“Preliminary information indicates that one Lebanese Army soldier went missing and another was wounded in Arsal clashes,” Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk told reporters at the Grand Serail, where he was attending a Cabinet session.

Tony Abbott, the Australian PM, has labelled the Iraq situation a genocide and has sent in aid to the Iraqis, using Australian military aircraft, but he and the government choose which genocides they will stand against and which peoples are worthy of Australian aid.

There has been no Australian aid sent in to Gaza. The reason is simple. The Australian PM and government are scared to death of offending Israeli and Australian Zionism.

Abbott acted in his usual gung ho way with the Iraq situation and rushed in , with no thoughtful analysis and no measured evaluation, and now it has been found by US military investigations on the ground that the Iraqis on the mountain were not isolated and not without food and water. Abbott never misses an opportunity to score political points at home to try and bolster the political fortunes of himself and his government at home.

Abbott is motivated by a desire to be seen as tough and to sort of build a military reputation for himself. If the PM wants to act out war and wearing a uniform why didn’t he enlist in the Australian military instead of going off to University?………KT

‘Kiev, rise up!’ Protesters demand resignation of Ukrainian president, defense minister

Hundreds of people have gathered in front of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry in Kiev, demanding resignation of President Petro Poroshenko and the defense minister over the poor handling of the military operation in the southeast.

USGS Study: Yellowstone Eruption Would Send Ash Across North America

An improved computer model developed by the study’s authors finds that the hypothetical, large eruption would create a distinctive kind of ash cloud known as an umbrella, which expands evenly in all directions, sending ash across North America…

The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan

According to Russia’s RIA Novosti, citing business daily Kommersant, Gazprom Neft has agreed to export 80,000 tons of oil from Novoportovskoye field in the Arctic; it will accept payment in rubles, and will also deliver oil via the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline (ESPO), accepting payment in Chinese yuan for the transfers. Meaning Russia will export energy to either Europe or China, and receive payment in either Rubles or Yuan, in effect making the two currencies equivalent as far as the Eurasian axis is conerned, but most importantly, transact completely away from the US dollar thus, finally putin’(sic) in action the move for a Petrodollar-free world.

“Justified Vengeance”, The Pretext for Bombing Gaza: Was the Netanyahu Government behind the Killings of the Three Israeli Teenagers?

The pretext for bombing and shelling Gaza was the death of three Israeli teenagers allegedly killed by Hamas.

‘Operation Protective Edge (OPE) directed against Gaza is reminiscent of the infamous 2001 Dagan Plan entitled “Operation Justified Vengeance” in which the deaths of innocent Israeli civilians had been envisaged and foreseen by IDF military planners.

The deaths are then used to muster the support of the Israeli public as well as provide a justification for a “legitimate” counter-terrorism operation in the eyes of the international community directed against the Palestinian occupied territories.

Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Launching Invasion, Then Promptly Retracts

Ukraine’s security and defense council said the border town of Novoazovsk and other parts of Ukraine’s south-east had fallen under the control of Russian forces who together with rebels were staging a counter-offensive. “A counter-offensive by Russian troops and separatist units is continuing in south-east Ukraine,” the council said in a post on Twitter. … and then everything was promptly denied: CORRECTED-UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT POROSHENKO SAYS RUSSIAN TROOPS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT INTO UKRAINE (NOT ‘RUSSIAN MILITARY INVASION HAS TAKEN PLACE’)

Phoenix VA horror stories: Case file vignettes from VA IG investigation

Here are some excerpts from some of the case files in the Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general’s investigation:

Case No. 29

In late summer 2013, a man in his early 60s with heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and hepatitis B and C, had severely depressed cardiac function, indicating heart failure and increased risk for sudden death. He had an implantable defibrillator placed in his heart but it had been removed. A Phoenix cardiologist recommended that he have a similar device implanted in four to five weeks. In early 2014, still without the procedure, the man collapsed in his kitchen and died three days later. According to the report, timely placement of the device “might have forestalled that death.”

18 Signs That The Obama Administration Is Openly Hostile To The Military

Has there ever been an administration that has had more disdain for the U.S. military than the Obama administration? The way that this administration treats our veterans and the way that this administration is gutting our armed forces is absolutely shameful. As you will read about below, Obama and his minions have been purging the military of officers that do not agree with their agenda, they have labeled veterans returning from overseas wars as “potential terrorists”, and they have turned our military into a playground for political correctness and social experiments. Not that Obama has been afraid to use the military. In fact, he has sent troops more places than just about any other president in U.S. history. He is running our brave men and women into the ground at the same time that he is relentlessly reducing the size of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

Chinese military’s 3,000mph super sub dismissed as ‘ludicrous’ by US experts

Chinese military researchers have made waves this week by claiming to be on track to build a next generation submarine that can travel at speeds exceeding 3,000 mph (that’s Shanghai to San Francisco in less than two hours). US weapons experts, however, have dismissed the claims as ‘ludicrous’.

The proposed submarine design would work by applying the concept of supercavitation – a method of speedy underwater travel that was first developed by the Soviets in the 60s, but that has only previously been fitted to torpedoes.

Iceland examines Bardarbunga volcano ‘cauldrons’

Scientists in Iceland say they are examining several ‘cauldrons’ found near Bardarbunga volcano, which could potentially be a sign of an eruption.

Iceland’s Met Office said they were formed “as a result of melting, possibly a sub-glacial eruption.”

‘Deeply elitist UK locks out diversity at top’

“Locking out a diversity of talents and experiences makes Britain’s leading institutions less informed, less representative and ultimately less credible than they should be,” warned Mr Milburn in his foreword to the report.

“This risks narrowing the conduct of public life to a small few who are very familiar with each other but far less familiar with the day-to-day challenges facing ordinary people in the country.

“That is not a recipe for a healthy democratic society.”

Some 75% of senior judges, 59% of the Cabinet, 57% of permanent secretaries, 50% of diplomats, 47% of newspaper columnists, 38% of the House of Lords, 33% of the shadow cabinet and 24% of MPs hold Oxbridge degrees.

In contrast, less than 1% of the whole population are Oxbridge graduates while 62% did not attend university, says the study.

The report describes the figures as “elitism so stark that it could be called social engineering”.

Column: Local government funds vacationing in Israel

Congratulations to Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel for further instilling the AIPACer ideology in Ohio government. Now, Ohio municipal and school administrators will quit complaining about the cessation of state funding.

The cessation of local funding has created surpluses in the Ohio treasury. Consequently, Mandel has increased transfers of Ohio money to Israel. The 2013 transfers amount to $26 million; the 2014 transfers exceed $48 million. Ohio holds $109 million of Israeli bonds which have a significant default risk. Ohio administrators should now be placated, with the knowledge that their lost revenue has gone to Israel, our allied theocracy.

In an Aug. 8 Washington Times advertisement for Israeli bonds, Mandel adroitly explains why Ohio is holding the $109 million of Israeli bonds. Cynics may question why Mandel is promoting investment in Israel instead of investment in Ohio. For Mandel, that question is unfair, since it goes to the essence of his AIPAC ideology

The news comes as a new outbreak was confirmed in the Democratic Republic of Congo after a pregnant woman contracted the disease from infected bush meat and passed it on to health workers.

BP refinery explosion rocks Whiting, no injuries reported

WHITING, Ind. – An explosion at a BP refinery in Whiting, Indiana, has rattled nearby homes. No injuries have been reported and no evacuation has been ordered.

A Whiting Fire Department spokesman said the explosion late Wednesday could be heard clearly several blocks from the plant. However, when fire commanders called plant officials to see if assistance was needed, they were told only to stand by.

Plant officials say the plant’s fire department was handling the incident. Officials at the BP plant, just east of Chicago, did not immediately provide details about the explosion.

The Chicago Sun-Times said Wednesday was the anniversary of a 1955 explosion in Whiting that killed two people.

Wallace Shawn on Gaza: “The Anger of the Palestinians Cannot Be Ended by Killing Their Children”

. . . . unfortunately, many members of the show business community are not very aware of the tragic history of the Palestinian people. And yet the fact is that in my own lifetime (I was born in 1943) the Palestinian people have been expelled from their land and subjected to unceasing and unjustifiable torment, including a brutal occupation and, in Gaza, a regime in which an entire population has been placed on a starvation diet.

Anyone who learns more about what has happened can’t help but realize that the anger of the Palestinians cannot be ended by killing their children. That is a fantasy. Human beings simply aren’t made that way.

What’s Really Responsible for Those Pesky Cravings?

by Dr. Victor Marchione

There’s always that moment, usually around midday or late at night, when I have a craving for something sweet or salty. I try to resist, but I admit, I don’t always succeed.

But when you really think about it, cravings are an interesting thing that can be quite dangerous. Cravings have thrown people off of their diets, have made it difficult to eat and live healthily, and have helped to propel the obesity epidemic. Giving into a craving now and then might not seem like a lot, but it can add up!

So what is it that makes your mind crave those usually off-limits treats?

The residents there rejected this new Government; this new Government is trying to exterminate them; and the local rebel-fighters against that are winning, and are decimating thousands of troops who were sent in to kill them and their families, and are shooting down many of the bombers that have been sent in to bomb them.

Ebola Devastates West Africa: Revenues Down; Markets Not Functioning; Projects Canceled; GDP Plunges 4%

The market, in its infinitely rigged wisdom, has concluded that the worst Ebola outbreak in history is a non-event, even though it has put virtually all of western Africa on indefinite lockdown, and as Reuters reports, is “causing enormous damage to West African economies and draining budgetary resources.” In fact the damage from Ebola to Africa is already so acute, it is expected that economic growth in the region will plunge by up to 4 percent as foreign businessmen leave and projects are canceled, according to the African Development Bank president said. Revenues are down, foreign exchange levels are down, markets are not functioning, airlines are not coming in, projects are being canceled, business people have left – that is very, very damaging,” African Development Bank (AfDB) chief Donald Kaberuka said in an interview late on Tuesday.

This process, called inversion, has been occurring more and more often, despite the fascistic suggestion by President Obama that headquartering outside the United States represents a betrayal of God and country.

Poll: People are self-censoring discussion of the NSA on Facebook and Twitter

A newly released poll from Pew Research found a “spiral of silence” on the topic of mass NSA surveillance in which social media users are unwilling to discuss the issue online, particularly if their friends do not agree with them. Notably, this self-censorship was far more prevalent on the internet than in real life:

Watch: A brief explanation of Libya’s demise

For the casual observer, the crisis in Libya has spun beyond comprehension.

Gone is the simple dichotomy of Muammar Gaddafi versus “the revolutionaries”.

Nor do the equally binary “Islamist versus secularist” or “liberal versus conservative” models fully apply in Libya where there are no “seculars” or real liberals to speak of.

Instead, what we have is numerous factions with different international and domestic connections, varying goals and competing interests. It is a complex picture of Islamists, organised crime, ultra-conservatives and traditionalists.

The video, reproduced courtesy of Middle East Eye, outlines briefly the political turmoil that has wracked Libya since the overthrow of Gaddafi in 2011 and culminated in the seizure and destruction of Tripoli airport by Islamist militias on 23 August 2014.

Let’s Treat Assad Fairly – Like Any Other Pro-West Dictator in the Middle East

Opinion, by Bruce Melton |
Glenn Greenwald thinks it’s funny that while a year ago, we were told that it was an absolute emergency to bomb Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and arm insurgents fighting to overthrow him, now we’re being told that it’s an absolute emergency to bomb Assad’s main military opponents. Greenwald concludes that the main constant of US foreign policy is that we always have to bomb people; exactly whom we have to bomb right now is much less important.

Florida Police Chief Defends Cops’ Aggressive, Violent and Life-Threatening Reaction Against Men Video Recording them

Boynton Beach Police Chief Jeffrey Katz defended the aggressive reaction of his officers in a Youtube video Tuesday, claiming the men in the car were “escalating” the situation by “recording the interaction,” causing one of the officers to fear for his life when a man “reached out of his window with a black object in his hand,” which was nothing more than a camera phone trying to record the cop’s name tag after he refused to provide it.

That cop slapped the phone out of his hand, then yanked the man out of the car, throwing him facedown on the grass while another cop with his gun drawn comes charging towards the other men, threatening to shoot one of them for who knows what.

“I’ll put a round in your ass so quick,” the cop said, even though none of the men in the car were doing anything more than being assertive about their rights, even if they were doing it in a profane manner, which is protected by the First Amendment.

America’s Corrupt Institutions — Paul Craig Roberts

Judges prefer plea bargains despite the fact that plea bargains amount to self-incrimination, because plea bargains dispense with time-consuming trials that cause backed-up and crowded court dockets. Trials also demand far more work on the part of a judge than accepting a plea bargain.

The fact of the matter is that in America today you are expected to convict yourself. Even your lawyer expects it. The torture is not physical; it is psychological. The system is severely biased against the defendant. Conviction by a jury brings a much heavier sentence than conviction by a deal that the defendant’s attorney negotiates with the prosecutor’s office. All the prosecutor wants is a conviction. Give him his conviction for his record as an effective prosecutor, and you get off lighter.

The injustice lies in the fact that the rule applies to the innocent as well as to the guilty.
The prosecutor and often the judge do not care whether you are innocent or guilty, and your lawyer knows that it does not matter to the outcome.

Western Media Just Propaganda Shills for War-Hungry Masters

The Western media have proved for all to see that mainstream news outlets comprise either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a den of prostitutes that sells war for money.

The Western media recently fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia.

‘The Chinafication of America’: Reaction to Obama Bypassing the Senate with UN Climate Treaty: ‘Obama is taking a page from China’s government’

New York Times: ‘U.S. seeking climate deal that would skirt Senate’: ‘Under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate. To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions…American negotiators are instead homing in on a hybrid agreement — a proposal to blend legally binding conditions from an existing 1992 treaty with new voluntary pledges. The mix would create a deal that would update the treaty, and thus, negotiators say, not require a new vote of ratification.’

Where Obama will; run into a brick wall is with the Carbon Tax. Under the Constitution, all revenue measures (including new taxes) must originate on the House of Representatives. Obama cannot bypass them.

Cambridge Mace’s Lane Middle School Teacher on Administrative Leave

He’s a man with many names, and the books he has written have raised the concerns of the Dorchester County Board of Education and the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office.

Early last week the school board was alerted that one of its eighth grade language arts teachers at Mace’s Lane Middle School had several aliases. Police said that under those names, he wrote two fictional books about the largest school shooting in the country’s history set in the future.

Those are not aliases, those are pen names, and many authors use them. “Mark Twain” was not his real name. Does that make it an “alias”, with all the sinister connotations?

DOJ Attorneys: Lerner’s Emails Exist, But Here’s Why We Aren’t Turning Them Over

A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating. And they say it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner’s emails from that backup system.

So everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives…it’s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they don’t want to.

And there’s no such thing as Lois Lerner’s missing emails. It’s all been a big lie. They’ve been lying to the courts, to the American people, to Congress. It’s outrageous.

Video shows police shot Ohio man ‘on sight’ as he leaned on toy gun in Walmart, attorney says

John Crawford III died Aug. 5 after police were called to Walmart in Beavercreek, near Dayton, by another shopper who reported a man carrying what appeared to be an AR-15 rifle.

The 22-year-old Crawford was instead carrying an unpackaged MK-177 (.177 caliber) BB/pellet rifle he picked up in the store’s toy department.

Police claim Crawford ignored their commands to drop the weapon, and the former Marine who called in the report and witnessed the shooting said Crawford “looked like he was going to go violently.” But attorney Michael Wright said surveillance video from the incident, which Ohio’s attorney general allowed him to watch with Crawford’s family, contradicted those accounts.
“John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,” Wright said.

The police are totally out of control.

Iranian sail boat defended itself against U.S. Coast Guard

As preposterous as it may sound, the U.S. coast guard boards boats everywhere in the world, not just along the American coast, and if things are not perfect, they detain everyone on the boat and burn it, even if it is a multi million dollar yacht. Knowing this policy, an Iranian fishing boat that was operating off the coast of Iran refused to allow boarding by the U.S. coast guard. The Coast Guard fired on this boat, but according to the Washington Post, left it floating with all aboard. At the end of this report is a link to a Washington Post article that downplays the Coast Guard’s hostile role in international waters, and the attitude expressed in the Washington Post article says a LOT.

The US Coast Guard now sees itself as having jurisdiction over all the world’s oceans.

Truce Items Between Palestinian Resistance And Israel

1. Return of Israeli tanks positions so that farmers can work.
2. Freeing of all prisoners arrested since June 23 (when 3 Israeli settlers were killed [and Hamas framed]), and improving the conditions of those currently in prison.
3. Lifting of Israel’s naval blockade around Gaza along with the complete opening of the land border crossings.
4. Establishment of an international airport and seaport in Gaza.
5. Expansion of Gaza fishing zone by six miles.
6. Open the Israel-Gaza border crossings permanently under UN supervision, instead of under Israel’s watch.
7. Ten-year truce with Israel along with the deployment of an international observer force on the border.
8. Israel must never enter Gaza under any circumstances and protect Palestinian Muslim worshippers at Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
9. Israel must refrain from interfering with the newly created unity Palestinian government between Fatah and Hamas.

Ferguson, MO, which has a population of 21,135, issued 32,975 arrest warrants for nonviolent offenses in 2013.

Georgia cops fired Taser 13 times ‘as a cattle prod’ to make tired man walk before he died

A Georgia man died after police shocked him with a Taser as many as 13 times because he said he was too tired to walk due to a foot chase, his attorney said this week.

At a press conference on Tuesday, attorney Chris Stewart said that police records showed that East Point officers had discharged their Tasers 13 times to make Gregory Towns, who was handcuffed, get up and walk.

“This is a direct violation of their own rules,” Stewart explained, according to WSB-TV. “You cannot use a Taser to escort or prod a subject.”

Because the Israelis are training our police forces, the cops treat Americans the way the IDF treats the Palestinians!

In Senate-CIA fight on interrogation report, another controversy

The background of a key negotiator in the battle over a Senate report on the CIA’s use of interrogation techniques widely denounced as torture has sparked concerns about the Obama administration’s objectivity in handling the study’s public release.

Robert Litt, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is a former defense lawyer who represented several CIA officials in matters relating to the agency’s detention and interrogation program. Now he’s in a key position to determine what parts of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s 6,300-page report will be made public.

Litt’s involvement doesn’t appear to be an ethics issue, at least by the legal definition. But experts say that while it may be acceptable on paper, his involvement in the review should have been a red flag.

The entire report should be released, completely unredacted, so that Americans know just precisely what was done to these prisoners of war.

Of course, that will happen when pigs fly.

Obama Talks Up Long Iraq War, Congressional Role Unclear

President Obama has made his latest in a long line of comments on the new Iraq War today, declaring “rooting out a cancer like ISIS won’t be easy and it won’t be quick.”

As usual, the focus was on a long war with a growing collection of missions attached, today’s being revenge for the execution of journalist James Foley. As the signs of an open-ended war in Iraq mount, the question of Congressional involvement remains unresolved.

The administration has downplayed the idea of even needing Congressional authorization for wars, saying they can launch them unilaterally and will “keep Congress informed” of the decisions they make. Where Congress as a whole would stand on such a vote is unclear, though many seem reluctant to hold the vote at all, preferring to avoid scrutiny of their position on the war come election time.

Memo to President Obama: if you had spent even a fraction of the money you have spent on these morally and fiscally disastrous wars on the concept of workable, renewable energy, we could tell those oil producing countries, “Thanks, but no thanks: please solve your own problems!”

We want no more wars; no more of our young men and women getting killed and maimed for life, ultimately for private corporate profit; and we want you to start fixing the enormous problems right here in our own country, and right now!

US Surveillance Flights A Step Toward Expanding War Into Syria

Officials confirmed the move toward surveillance flights over ISIS targets in Syria, leaving somewhat open the question of when the US is going to start launching airstrikes against targets inside Syria, expanding the Iraq War across the border.

Yet it’s not really a question of if, but when, as the surveillance flights are clearly the first step toward such attacks. The primary question is how to start launching such attacks without Syrian coordination, since officials want to avoid the appearance of cooperating with Syria.

The questions abound about expanding the war into Syria and are mostly unanswered, with Gen. Dempsey pushing the attacks, and the US already giving targeting intel to Syria’s government for the ISIS war.

The real reason the US government is going into Syria, and back into Iraq, is that with ISIS controlling so much of the oil (at 2 to 3 million dollars of revenue per day), the oil is not being sold in US dollars, but other denominations.

This is about wrestling back economic control of the oil, and the currency in which is is sold.

NATO chief eyes more bases in E. Europe to confront Russia

Under the pretext of an ‘overt’ Russian threat, NATO is pushing for a ‘readiness action plan’ that will bring the Cold War military bloc closer to Russian borders than ever – even despite objections from some NATO members.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the 28-nation military bloc, which meets next week in Cardiff, Wales, would attempt to overcome internal opposition and agree to the deployment of military bases near the Russian border.

Amid the ongoing Ukrainian conflict, which is fracturing the country along east-west ideological lines, NATO is preparing to install for the first time military “reception facilities” in Eastern European countries, including Poland and the three Baltic countries: Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia.

Memo to NATO Secretary General Rasmussen: the title of this article should have read: “NATO chief eyes more bases in E. Europe to PROVOKE Russia.

Sir, I would very much like to remind you that so far, Russia has done absolutely nothing wrong.

The legitimate, elected government of Ukraine was overthrown in a US/EU/ECB-sponsored putsch earlier this year, so the Poroshenko could be “installed” as its President.

At that point, Crimea, which has long been a part of Russia, before Kruschiev, an ethnic Ukrainian, annexed it, asked to become part of the Russian Federation. And in what was characterized as a “free and fair election”, complete with observers, the Crimean people chose to become a part of the Russian Federation.

And is not “the right to peaceful self-determiniation” one of the underpinnings of the UN Charter?!?

Secretary Fasmussen, Russia is not the aggressor here; NATO, the US, and the West, are the aggressors here.

What I am seeing, Secretary General Rasmussen, is a prelude to a war between Russia, and Europe, NATO, and the US.

This is absolutely the antithesis of what should be happening here, where Russia and NATO should be working collaboratively to establish a broader basis for peace, humanitarian operations, and a more sane world.

IN PHOTOS ~~ THE LITTLE DOLLS OF GAZA’S DEAD CHILDREN

Although they have only finished about 1/3 of our representations of the children murdered in Gaza the Granny Peace Brigade brought them to a demonstration organized by Jews Say No at the subway station on W. 96th St. and Broadway yesterday. Jews Say No does this regularly in an effort to engage with the community and discuss what is happening in Israel/Palestine. The reaction to the Gaza children representations was very strong. Many people gave the Grannies a thumbs-up or came over to speak saying they were glad to see them there. Several others were very passionate in their condemnation, screaming, calling the Grannies ignorant and anti-semites, and accusing them of pandering to people’s feelings. For the most part the demonstrators didn’t respond to the attacks. When there is one representation for each murdered child they will be taken to public places around the city and displayed.

#OperationCeasefire ~~ THE WAR THAT WILL GO DOWN IN THE ANUS OF HISTORY

Some wars are recorded in the annals of history, the last Israeli incursion into Gaza will definitely go down in its anus.

Both sides claim victory, yet there is no victor.

Gaza lost over 2,000 innocent civilians including over 250 children. Neighbourhoods, schools, hospitals were totally destroyed by Israel’s indiscriminate bombings. Israel (re)gained complete control of the Strip by giving legitimacy to the illegitimate Mahmoud Abbas.

Where I come from, THAT IS NOT A VICTORY!

I disagree. In order for Israel to be victorious, they had to prevail over Gaza. For Gaza to be victorious, they merely had to endure, which they did. Game, set, and match, Gaza!

Russia’s Gazprom Neft to Sell Oil for Rubles, Yuan

The Russian oil company Gazprom Neft has agreed to export 80,000 tons of oil from Novoportovskoye field in the Arctic; it will accept payment in rubles, and will also deliver oil via the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline (ESPO), accepting payment in Chinese yuan for the transfers, the Russian business daily Kommersant reported Wednesday.

The Russian government and several of the country’s largest exporters have widely discussed the possibility of accepting payments in rubles for oil exports.

Last week, Russia began to ship oil from the Novoportovskoye field to Europe by sea. Two oil tankers are expected to arrive in Europe in September. According to Kommersant, the payment for these shipments will be received in rubles.

Gazprom Neft will not only accept payments in rubles; subsequent transfers via the ESPO may be paid for in yuan, the newspaper reported.

According to the newspaper, the change in currency was made because of the Western sanctions against Russia.

And please note that the US dollar has been neatly expunged from any of these transactions!!

Physical Silver Inventory Declined By 24%

As I mentioned in a earlier article, the Comex is more of a paper trading exchange in which the majority of contracts are settled in cash. However, the opposite is the case with the Shanghai Futures Exchange as the majority of contracts are settled with physical metal.

At the beginning of August, there were 148 metric tons of silver on warrant at the Shanghai Futures Exchange. In just three weeks, 29% of the total inventory was removed. The majority of this decline took place last week when 22 metric tons were withdrawn on Friday alone.

Also, we can see that since the beginning of July, 131 metric tons, or 56% of total silver stocks were removed from the Shanghai Futures Exchange. At this trend, it would only take a few more months to totally wipe out the remaining inventory.

Russia Not Declaring All Gold Reserves To IMF?

Russia now has the world’s 6th largest gold reserves, officially higher than both Switzerland’s 1,040 tonnes and China’s 1054.1 tonnes. As a comparison, in the second quarter of 2009, Russia only had 550 tonnes of gold in its official reserves meaning that their reserves have nearly doubled in just over 5 years.

The ongoing accumulation of official gold by Russia appears to be part of a reserve diversification strategy. Gold is held by central banks as one of their reserve assets alongside foreign exchange assets including US Dollars and Euros, and also IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRs).

Some Russian analysts point to the threat of continued western sanctions on Russia as a renewed catalyst for the Russian central bank diversifying out of dollars and euros by increasing its gold reserves. Gold now accounts for over 12% of Russian official reserves and could reach 15% by year end if the current trend continues.

This at a time when the New York Fed is struggling to replace the missing gold entrusted to it by several governments.

Western sanctions push Russia, China closer; hurt dollar

y forcing Russia to conduct more business in the yuan and other Asian currencies, the U.S. may be speeding up the end of the petrodollar and giving China more prominence on the world stage.

As the West tightens financial sanctions against Russia over the conflict in Ukraine, Russian businesses are reducing their exposure to the dollar to minimize the damage from still tougher punishments. Many of these businesses have turned to the Hong Kong dollar as an alternative to the greenback.

Russian mobile phone carrier MegaFon said it will convert 40% of its dollar- and euro-denominated cash reserves into Hong Kong dollars.

Major nonferrous metal producer Norilsk Nickel has also decided to shift its U.S. dollar funds into the Hong Kong dollar.

It has become painfully obvious that a major, mandatory prerequisite for working for this Administration is the pathological inability to think things through to their logical conclusion.

Ten more countries that may default on debt after Argentina

Argentina defaulted for the second time in 12 years after hopes for a midnight deal with holdout creditors were dashed, setting up stock and bond prices for declines on Thursday and raising chances a recession could worsen this year.

After a long legal battle with hedge funds that rejected Argentina’s debt restructuring following its 2002 default, Latin America’s third-biggest economy failed to strike a deal in time to meet a midnight deadline for a coupon payment on exchange bonds.

Even a short default will raise companies’ borrowing costs, pile more pressure on the peso, drain dwindling foreign reserves and fuel one of the world’s highest inflation rates.

However, Argentina is not the only country that has struggled to pay its debt recently. There are 10 other countries currently on Moody’s lists with a rating of Caa1 or worse, meaning they are at risk of default.

IT is amazing that the United States is not on this list, as the economy is very shaky, no matter how the stock market looks right now, and the value of the US dollar is under siege through consistent “qualitative easing” by the Fed.

Monsanto and Ukraine

Finally, a little-known aspect of the crisis in Ukraine is receiving some international attention. On July 28, the California-based Oakland Institute released a report revealing that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), under terms of their $17 billion loan to Ukraine, would open that country to genetically-modified (GM) crops and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture. The report is entitled “Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict.” [1]

In late 2013, the then president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, rejected a European Union association agreement tied to the $17 billion IMF loan, whose terms are only now being revealed. Instead, Yanukovych chose a Russian aid package worth $15 billion plus a discount on Russian natural gas. His decision was a major factor in the ensuing deadly protests that led to his ouster from office in February 2014 and the ongoing crisis.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable from a guy like Poroshenko.

If he had cared anything about the lives and health of his people, he never would have allowed this to happen, period, end of discussion.

It is obvious that they are utterly expendable to him.

I remember when President Obama was here for the APEC conference (the Asian Pacific Economic Conference) and Mike and I were headed down the hill to drop me off at church, so that I could sing with our choir, and the entire bloody cross-street was blocked off with soldiers carrying loaded rifles, and no one could get through.

Ultimately, after we turned around and got back home, I had to call our director, and explain that I was unable to get to church because of all the guys carry rifles, and he was quite understanding.

It felt rather as though the Constitution and Bill of Rights had been suspended on Oahu for that day, and I found myself very, very angry.

Myth of ‘Limited’ US Airstrikes in Syria

The US is once again on the warpath against Syria after the beheading of US citizen James Foley was released on the internet a week ago.

His execution is being used to justify a mixed anti-terror and ‘humanitarian’ intervention in northeastern Syria. An information offensive has now been launched to peddle the myth of ‘limited’ strikes against Islamic State (IS) targets, but in all actuality, such a campaign is impossible to contain within the strict limits US authorities are promising.

Obama has already authorized surveillance flights over Syrian territory, showing that an attack appears to be imminent. A quick exercise in scenario forecasting illustrates how any US intervention in Syria will most certainly evolve from a ‘limited anti-terror operation’ to a massive military offensive, complete with proxy occupations and a full-scale outbreak of chaos throughout the entire country.

Gee, ya think?

Russia can’t set ceasefire conditions in Ukraine’s internal conflict – Putin

Russian and Ukrainian leaders have concluded their first official face-to-face meeting in Minsk during which they discussed Ukraine’s Association Agreement with EU and the crisis and humanitarian disaster in the east of the country.

Russia will do everything to facilitate a peace process in Ukraine, President Putin told the press following the 2-hour talks, which he described as “positive.”

However, Russia did not and had never set forth conditions for settling Ukraine’s internal conflict, Putin added, so a ceasefire agreement was not discussed during the talks in the absence of peace suggestions from Ukrainian leadership.

“We, Russia, cannot talk about any ceasefire conditions whatsoever, or possible agreements between Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk,” Putin stated.

F-15 military jet crashes in Virginia

An F-15 military jet crashed in western Virginia early Wednesday, according to local media reports.

In Deerfield, Virginia, multiple news outlets have reported already that an aircraft crashed shortly after 9:00 a.m. local time in a wooded part of the region around 180 miles west of Washington, DC. By 10:30, the news site had confirmed that a spokesperson for the National Travel Safety Board identified the aircraft as a military jet.

Officials with the August County Sheriff’s Office told a local ABC News affiliate that a loud boom had been heard in the mountainous part of Deerfield at around 9:15 a.m., and that witnesses reported black smoke emerging from the scene. The News Leader also reported that Virginia State Police had been notified roughly at the same time of a plane crash, and that the debris was likely that of an F-15 jet.

The militarization of America’s police forces has been the result of federal policy that not only provides the means to give men-in-blue the same tools as combat soldiers, but in fact requires law enforcement to “use it or lose it” when it comes to military equipment.

Specifically, the Department of Defense’s 1033 program—which funnels all kinds of military surplus goods to police—has a provision that clearly says that any participating law enforcement agency must use its equipment within one year of receiving it. If they don’t, they have to give it up.

This Is Outrageous — Toxic Decayed Meat Being Sold As “Fresh”

This toxic practice makes seriously decayed meat look fresh for weeks and is banned in many countries including the European Union and Japan.

Many consumers are unaware that over 70% of beef and chicken in the United States and Canada is treated with poisonous carbon monoxide gas and the FDA allows it, despite the known public health risks.

A bill was introduced in Congress that would require the labeling of meat that has been treated with carbon monoxide but it was never enacted and the topic was swept under the rug entirely. [Bill: H.R. 3115 (110th) introduced on July 19, 2007; never enacted.]

This practice makes meat appear and smell fresh even when contaminated with harmful bacteria such as Clostridium botulinum, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E-coli 0157:H7.

VA ‘Oscar the Grouch’ training angers vets

The beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs depicted dissatisfied veterans as Oscar the Grouch in a recent internal training guide, and some vets and VA staffers said Tuesday that they feel trashed.

The cranky Sesame Street character who lives in a garbage can was used in reference to veterans who will attend town-hall events Wednesday in Philadelphia.

If at first you don’t succeed, lie, lie again!

A United Nations report has accused Syria of using chemical weapons eight times in April – and highlights mass atrocities by Islamic State militants.

The report by the independent Commission of Inquiry said it believed chlorine, dispatched in barrel bombs, was the agent used on multiple occasions.

It also highlighted mock crucifixions, public executions, amputations and the beheading of children by Islamic State militants in parts of Syria.

The accusations came amid reports that Syrian rebels had seized control of the Syrian crossing with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

‘Anti-Semitic filth’: Turnbull condemns racist leaflets distributed in Sydney

Malcolm Turnbull has condemned the people behind anti-Semitic leaflets distributed in Sydney this week, saying their actions “gnaw away at the foundations of society”.

The flyers, which called for action from “white Australia,” were delivered to mail boxes on a predominantly Jewish street in Bondi.

The fact that these were delivered to a predominantly Jewish street in Bondi tells us that this is a propaganda operation to rebuild support for Israel following their public relations disaster in Gaza. Such hoaxes are very common. Over at the Common Dreams website, their webmaster tracked down someone who was posting nasty anti-Semitic posts using multiple identities and it turned out to be a Jewish graduate from Harvard out to “prove” there was anti-Semitism on the internet. My own email continues to be flooded with a similar hoax, identical in content but from multiple sender addresses. Going back in time, there was that professor at Claremont College, Kerri Dunn, who gained press attention when her car was painted with Swastikas and hate speech, only to have witnesses confirm she had done it herself. Then there is the case of George Washington University student Sarah Marshak, who gained national media attention when she reported someone kept drawing swastikas on her dorm room door. The university installed a surveillance camera to watch Sarah’s door, but without telling her, and promptly caught Sarah committing the vandalism herself!

Every time Israel commits a war crime, the very first thing they do is replay the tired old WW2, Hitler, Holocaust, anti-Semitic card to try to regain the world’s sympathy. With Israel’s attempt to portray itself as the victim in the recent attacks on Gaza an epic failure, a renewal of these hoaxes is to be expected. But we have heard Israel cry “Anti-Semitic Wolf” so many times that only a complete moron would fall for it again!

“During the night we have had three larger events, two of them in the Bardarbunga caldera. Those were 5.2 and 5.3, and very similar to the events that we have seen there before,” said Palmi Erlendsson, a geologist at the Met Office.

He said there had also been a 4.5 magnitude quake at the Askja volcano, 50 kilometers (30 miles)to the north, probably because of magma from Bardarbunga moving in that direction.

FDA admits not knowing about existence of many food chemicals, let alone their safety

The explosive introduction of new food additives, in addition to an easing of some federal oversight requirements, has allowed manufacturers to dodge scrutiny from the Food and Drug Administration, the agency responsible for ensuring the safety of chemicals that are flowing into the food supply.

And, as reported by The Washington Post, in hundreds of cases the FDA is not even aware of the existence of new additives, which can include chemical preservatives, thickening agents and flavorings, interviews and records have shown.

“We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals,” said Michael Taylor, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for food, in an interview with the Post.

CIA acted to shape Portugal’s post-revolutionary political scene

The US State Department approved its first clandestine operational plan for Portugal on 27th September 1974 with the stated aim of “avoiding the communists taking power” according to documents publicly released on their 40th anniversary.

This is the first time ever that there has been formal acknowledgement of such actions decided upon by the 40 Committee that oversaw all such operations including those run by the CIA.

However, there is unlikely to be any major local fallout from the revelations as the Portuguese politicians, parties and organisations involved in such operations are not only not named, with any reference from the now declassified version deleted but also only ever described vaguely.

The timing of 27th September proves significant as this was on the eve of the coup by the Movimento das Forças Armadas (MFA), a left-leaning faction of the armed forces, that brought down the government on 30th September.

Guns, bombs and weapons can all be snuck past TSA agents, even while they ogle at naked images of passengers

Teflon tape, molded plastic explosives and hidden handguns were all used in concealment techniques and tricks that enabled a group of researchers to hide banned and dangerous weapons and substances from Rapiscan Secure 1000 machines previously used at Transportation Security Administration airport checkpoints, and which are currently used at courthouses, prisons and other government buildings.

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego, the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University were able to maneuver weapons past the full-body X-ray scanners once used at security checkpoints in airports between 2009 and 2013, installed and maintained at a cost of about $1 billion.

“Frankly, we were shocked by what we found,” said J. Alex Halderman, a professor of computer science at the University of Michigan, in a statement. “A clever attacker can smuggle contraband past the machines using surprisingly low-tech techniques.”

Dutch Intellectuals Apologize to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine…

Dear Mr. President Putin,

Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country.

We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for ‘crimes’ without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.

You have saved us from a conflict in Syria that could have escalated into a World War. The mass killing of innocent Syrian civilians through gassing by ‘Al-­?Qaeda’ terrorists, trained and armed by the US and paid for by Saudi Arabia, was blamed on Assad. In doing so, the West hoped public opinion would turn against Assad, paving the way for an attack on Syria.

Hewlett-Packard Recalls Nearly 6 Million Power Cords Because Melting Doesn’t Charge The Computer

Computer power cords are meant to provide juice to your device; they aren’t meant to melt or catch fire. So when that happens, it’s time for a recall. Such is the case for Hewlett-Packard.

The computer company recalled nearly 6 million LS-15 AC power cords in the United States and Canada because they can overheat, posing a potential fire and burn hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports.

Hewlett-Packard received 29 reports of the melting or charring power cords, two that included claims of minor burns and 13 claims of minor property damage.

Will Republicans Block Action On Corporations Abandoning The U.S.?

There is legislation before Congress to do something about corporations renouncing their US “citizenship.” The odds are that Republicans will block it — and not just because they have obstructed everything else.

There is a wave of news about corporations using a technicality called an “inversion” to renounce their US “citizenship.” An inversion is when a US company buys or merges with a non-US company, and then pretends it is no longer a US company. Today it’s Burger King. Not long ago it was Walgreens.

US Coast Guard Fires at Iranian Sailboat in Persian Gulf

Literally thousands of miles away from any US coast, the US Coast Guard fired what officials are calling a “warning shot” against an Iranian dhow in the Persian Gulf. No casualties were reported.

The dhow, a type of sail-powered trading vessel common in the Indian Ocean and surrounding area, had two .50 caliber machine guns mounted on it for defensive purposes, and one of the guns was manned when the Coast Guard vessel approached it in what officials are calling a “routine maritime security operation.”

How Cops and Hackers Could Abuse California’s New Phone Kill-Switch Law

“It’s great for the consumer, but it invites a lot of mischief,” says Hanni Fakhoury, staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which opposes the law. “You can imagine a domestic violence situation or a stalking context where someone kills [a victim's] phone and prevents them from calling the police or reporting abuse. It will not be a surprise when you see it being used this way.”

More importantly, however, the EFF continues to oppose it on grounds that it could be abused by law enforcement. The organization has focused in particular on the law’s failure to specify who can activate the kill switch and how it may be abused by others.

European Parliament Fails to Calculate Impact of Sanctions Prior to Implementation

The European Parliament did not conduct any of its own official studies on the impact of its sanctions against Russia prior to their implementation or to this day, said Director-General of the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) Anthony Teasdale and Secretary-General of the European Parliament (EP) Klaus Welle on Tuesday.

“On sanctions, no we have not, in the European Parliament Research Service, done any analysis on the financial implications,” said Teasdale in response to a question from RIA Novosti at a Wilson Center event on EU economic integration.

He said there had been no requests from parliamentary committees, noting that “the committees have not been meeting for the last three or four months, because we’ve been having European elections.”

Minsk summit shows Kiev policy to confront Moscow unjustified — Pushkov

The Minsk summit between presidents of Russia and Ukraine Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko showed that Kiev’s policy seeking total confrontation with Moscow had not been justified, the head of Russia’s State Duma international affairs committee Alexei Pushkov told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.

“I believe that talks in Minsk showed the policy Ukraine’s leadership had taken up at the beginning of this summer particularly to halt gas talks with Russia, blocking a reasonable agreement on the issue, a course for breaking trade and economic ties with Russia and total confrontation with Russia at international forums, was not justified,” said Pushkov.

States with medical pot see nearly 25 percent fewer fatal prescription drug overdoses

Israel’s “Qualitative Military Edge”: Blank Checks, No Balance?

This month the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration had slowed the shipment of Hellfire missiles to Israel after it bombed a UN school in Gaza on Aug. 3 with the US-made weapon. The White House has insisted that weapons transfers to Israel have not been suspended or halted, and that the administration is only “taking extra care to look at these shipments.” Yet some analysts understood the unusual decision as a warning message to Tel Aviv about the use of disproportionate force. Whether or not that’s true, it’s no secret that the United States is Israel’s biggest source of military assistance, even if the White House has not been completely aware about the extent of that support.

So, in a real way, Israel’s defeat in Gaza is also the White House’s defeat!

Israel lost the war in Gaza but the struggle for justice goes on

There is one clear reason to celebrate the ceasefire deal Israel and the Palestinian resistance reached today: 51 days and nights of relentless Israeli massacres and destruction have come to an end in Gaza.

With reports that Israel has agreed to reopen Gaza’s borders, Hamas announced victory and Palestinians, especially in Gaza, are celebrating. Among many Israelis, meanwhile, there is a feeling of bitterness and defeat.

“What Netanyahu and his colleagues have brought down on Israel, in a conflict between the region’s strongest army and an organization numbering 10,000, is not just a defeat. It’s a downfall,” wrote Haaretz’s Amir Oren in a stunning admission of how much Israel has been set back.

Israel’s extermination of whole families in Gaza reflects genocidal impulse

Eighty-nine families that existed seven weeks ago in Gaza have been exterminated by Israel.

On Sunday 24 August an Israeli missile tore through the home of Issam Jouda in Gaza’s Tal al-Zatar neighborhood east of Jabaliya without warning, killing Issam’s wife Rawiya and their four children—Taghrid, Tasnim, Usama and ?Muhammad.

According to the Palestinian health ministry , the Joudas were the eighty-ninth family wiped out in Gaza since the Israeli army started bombarding the besieged coastal enclave on 7 July.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde under investigation in France

She and her former chief of staff face questions about their role in a 400 million-euro ($531 million) payment to a businessman.

Washington Imam says attacks are coordinated by FBI, CIA

Imam of Masjid al-Islam in Washington Imam Abdul Alim Musa, an outspoken critic of US policies regarding Israel, says he continues to receive life threats.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, he said a group of gunmen on Friday attacked him in Oakland, California and violently assaulted him and the mosque he was in.

The Imam said the attack was a coordinated attempt by the FBI and the CIA.

Suddenly “several people came, led by one person who used to be with us and they had guns. They pulled out guns and they tried to break into the Masjid and I told them of course you cannot come,” said Imam Musa about the incident.

“We were in front of our Masjid last Friday, to tell the people that we are not going to have Salat al-Jumah (Friday Prayer) because it is a source of Fitna until we clean up the activities around the Masjid,” he said.

Bankers Suck Lifeblood from Argentina

Paul Singer is not a nice guy.

The Jewish billionaire head of Elliott Management Corp. and a few mega-rich vulture fund managers have no problem with the likely economic destruction of the sovereign nation of Argentina, birthplace of Pope Francis.

By demanding full value for defaulted Argentine bonds they purchased for a pittance and refusing to accept a reasonable settlement, the unscrupulous profiteers may have forced the South American country to the brink of bankruptcy. If they succeed in their piratical efforts, these plutocratic poobahs will almost certainly cause the total collapse of the struggling Argentine economy, creating rampant poverty, joblessness and chaos. Already in 2006, commentator Adrian Salbuchi, at Canada’s Global Research website, likened this to “financial genocide and terrorism.”

Is YOUR tap water lowering your IQ? Fears over high flouride levels found in water in Maine

Tap water in some parts of Maine contains high levels of flouride that could be lowering resident’s IQ, it has been claimed.

Residents in the Dedham area rely on private wells.

However, a new study found that in 10 communities in the state have wells that have dangerously high levels of fluoride.

A 2012 review article by Harvard examined several studies performed outside the U.S. and found that high fluoride exposures reduce children’s IQs by an average of about seven points.

Harvard University researchers’ review of fluoride/brain studies concludes ‘our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.’

The US has begun surveillance flights over Syria after President Barack Obama gave his approval, US officials said, in a move that could pave the way for air strikes against Islamic State militant targets there.

“There are no plans to coordinate with the Assad regime as we consider this terror threat,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, after Syrian officials demanded Washington ask permission for any action.

Mumbai: We are isolating 120 beds. We have been told that more than 100 passengers (on 7 flights) are suspected to have been exposed to Ebola

States with medical pot see nearly 25 percent fewer fatal prescription drug overdoses

Crime rates drop. Overdose deaths drop. Potheads are better drivers with fewer accidents according to the insurance actuarials. Kills all kinds of cancer. Alleviates chronic pain. Grows new nerve cells…ect.! ect.! ect.!
GEE! Wonder why it’s still illegal!

ISIS is just another US/NATO puppet “boogie-man” to further the bigger agenda at play

Israel, Hamas agree to Egypt-brokered cease-fire

The cease-fire includes an agreement to open border crossings between Gaza and Israel to allow the flow of humanitarian relief, assistance and materials for reconstruction in Gaza, Abdelatty said. Palestinians will also be allowed to fish in an area up to six miles off the Gaza coast into the Mediterranean, up from three miles, he said.

“The deal includes as well the continuation of indirect talks between the two sides here in Egypt to tackle other areas of mutual interest and concerns,” he said, adding that those indirect talks will begin within a month. Those discussions will include issues such as building a seaport and airport in Gaza, and Israel’s demand that Hamas disarm.

Sounds good, but the Israeli hard-liners will try to find some way to wreck this.

Palestinians reach long-term truce with Israel: Officials

According to Palestinian sources, the Palestinians and the Israelis agreed to a permanent ceasefire on Tuesday.

“The contacts that have been going on have agreed a permanent ceasefire, a (deal to) end the blockade and a guarantee that Gaza’s demands and needs will be met,” media quoted a senior unnamed Palestinian official as saying.

Meanwhile, Mussa Abu Marzuk, a senior official from the Palestinian resistance group Hamas, said the truce marks a victory for the Palestinians. He added that the truce is expected to be officially announced in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

The developments come as previous temporary ceasefires have failed to produce a deal between the two sides.

The contentious subject at the Cairo talks has been the issue of the Israeli blockade of the impoverished territory.

Sounds good, but for two problems. This article says “Palestinians” rather than HAMAS, and may represent an end-run around HAMAS by Israel which was trying to make a deal with Abbas. HAMAS is not bound by any deals Abbas makes.

Second problem; Israel never keeps their agreements.

Why Washington’s War on Terror Failed

Washington sabotaged its own “war on terror” by destabilizing the Middle East even as it coddled the U.S. allies who were actually sponsoring terrorism.

There are extraordinary elements in the present U.S. policy in Iraq and Syria that are attracting surprisingly little attention.

Gaza Under Siege: Israel Destroys Hospitals, Denies Entry to Doctors and Medical Aid

Dr. Swee Ang Chai: All the authors and signatories fear the worse at the beginning of this crisis which erupted in early July based on their previous experience. However the situation has got much worse since the publication of the letter. Gaza has already been declared a disaster area by the UK government. Despite the destruction of infrastructure, doctors and healthcare workers in Gaza continued to work despite severe conditions and their personal circumstances. Their own homes are being destroyed and families killed, and to be landed with more than 12,000 wounded is simply overwhelming for any medical system. That this is why Swee and her surgical colleagues wanted to assist by volunteering to go to Gaza.. As of yesterday (22 August 2014) the death toll reached 2083, with 50% women and children. Eighty five families were annihilated, and 12,656 injured.

Libya’s ex-parliament reconvenes, appoints Omar al-Hasi as PM

The former Libyan parliament replaced in national elections in June reconvened on Monday to elect an Islamist-backed deputy as prime minister, challenging the authority of the turbulent country’s new legislature.

The old General National Congress (GNC), where Islamists had a strong voice, has refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of its successor assembly, the House of Representatives, which is dominated by liberals and federalists.

Detroit to send crews for water service shutoff today as moratorium ends

Detroit says the last of a series of “water fairs” has helped at least 1,300 residents avoid having their taps run dry as a shutoff moratorium ends.

Monday marked the end of the water shutoff moratorium, and the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department was expected to send crews out Tuesday to turn off service to customers who owe money and haven’t made a payment arrangement.

According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is “the other Mexico,” Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”

1,400 kids sexually abused in UK town

An investigation reveals that at least 1,400 children as young as 11 years of age were subjected to “appalling” sexual exploitation in England’s town of Rotherham during a 16-year time period.

According to an independent probe by Professor Alexis Jay, the children were victims of gang rape and other forms of abuse from 1997 to 2013.

Man, 32, is left with brain damage after ‘being attacked by gang of 20 black men’ in parking lot after being told Waffle House ‘wasn’t safe for white people after Ferguson’

A West Point man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of around 20 people in a Huddle House parking lot, police said, potentially as retaliation for Michael Brown’s killing.

Ralph Weems IV, who is white, was injured early Saturday but is now in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Genie Causey said.

A relative, Bradley Barnes of Madison, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that his brother-in-law was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery.

‘They’re going to try and wake him up tomorrow and see what damage was done,’ Barnes said, describing Weems as a 32-year-old former Marine who had served in Iraq.

‘We lost our jobs for reporting being raped’: Haunting photo essay depicts the suffering of women who were victims of sexual violence in the U.S. military

What The Corporate Media Isn’t Reporting About Israel And Palestine

On Tuesday, Israel’s Operation Protective Edge aggression entered day 50. Mass slaughter and destruction continue.

Permanent war is official US policy. One country after another is targeted. All independent ones are vulnerable.

Family Thinks Otterbein Assault May Have Been Hate Crime

Police confirm the suspect arrested for a violent attack Thursday night on a young man in the Otterbein neighborhood near Federal Hill is now a suspect in a similar attack just one night earlier in the same area.

Derek Valcourt talked to the father of the latest victim and has more on the attacks.

Three attacks in less than a week in Federal Hill. We have a first look at the injuries from the most recent attack—and why the victim’s family thinks this might have been a hate crime.

It will take plastic surgery to properly fix the injury suffered by the 25-year-old victim, who asked not to be identified by name. It happened Thursday night when three African-American teenagers attacked him, throwing a rock at his face as he walked down Montgomery Street after leaving his lifeguard job at the nearby Otterbein Swim Club. Police say one of the suspects, 19-year-old Sidney Joyner, tried to stab him with a pocket knife; the victim dodged the blade.

Pravda.Ru freelance correspondent arrested in Ukraine

Yesterday, it became known that editor-in-chief of the Luhansk Pravda, Oksana Lashchenova, who was a freelance correspondent of Pravda.Ru for ten years, was detained at a checkpoint in the village of Schastye in Ukraine.

We did not take the risk to write about it immediately, as we were afraid of harming Oksana by letting everyone know that she was cooperating with Russian mass media. However, it was said today on the website of the Ukrainian Pravda that Lashchenova was “a correspondent of a hideous Russian publication Pravda.Ru.”

We know that our publication was included on the “stop list” of the Security Bureau of Ukraine, indicating, should any of our correspondents find themselves on the territory of Ukraine, they should be arrested “with no trial, no record.”

A 22 yr old Australian Aboriginal woman who died in jail after twice seeking medical attention from authorities who deemed her healthy, was imprisoned over unpaid fines totalling just $1000

Julieka Dhu who was 22-years-old at the time of her death earlier this month, was in jail for four days for failing to pay a $1000 fine.
It’s emerged that not only was Ms Dhu released from hospital multiple times after complaining she felt unwell but she was locked up as part of the WA government’s policy of paying down outstanding fines through prison time.

Failure Of Israeli Hasbara And Its Propaganda Campaign

The genocidal war that the apartheid Israeli state has waged on the Gaza Strip has generated an unprecedented wave of international public condemnation and international solidarity with the Palestinians. Graphic images of unimaginable destruction and heaps of dismembered and shattered bodies of innocent children flooded social media. Circulating in the context of the recent history of a series of Israeli military incursions into Gaza (first in 2008 and again in 2012), these images prompted hundreds of thousands of people to take to the streets around the world to demand an end to the Israeli occupation and ethnic cleansing in Gaza.

#OperationCeasefire … ABBAS WINS, PALESTINE LOSES

President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday declared a long-term ceasefire agreement between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip.In a short televised address, Abbas said the agreement would go into effect at 7 p.m.

This was a desperate attempt by Israel to end-run around HAMAS and bolster the image of Abbas as being in charge of all of Palestine. But HAMAS was not consulted in this deal, and of course, do not feel bound by it.

Federal Judge: Kauai’s GMO Law Is Invalid

A Kauai County law requiring companies to disclose their use of pesticides and genetically modified crops is invalid, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai’s new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren’s ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge’s ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

Is Hamas Leader Al-Arouri A ‘Double Agent’ for Israel?

Turkey has openly acknowledged that a top Hamas operative has been residing within its borders. The United States has also acknowledged this fact.

Saleh al-Arouri, one of the founding members of Hamas’s Qassam Brigades was exiled to Syria until the Arab Spring, quickly making his way to Turkey thereafter. Al-Arouri, formerly jailed in Israel for his Hamas membership has recently claimed that Hamas was involved in the deaths of three Israeli teens – without providing evidence.

SO MUCH FOR THE ONE STATE SOLUTION

Knesset members from Yisrael Beiteinu, Likud and Habayit Hayehudi are pushing a bill to make Hebrew the only official language of the State of Israel.

Current Israeli law borrows from legislation from the British Mandate period, under which the government and local authorities must publish all announcements and forms in Arabic. The new bill would annul this stipulation, as well as the use of Arabic at government ministries and in the courts.

According to the bill, highway signs would still have Arabic, “and everyone has the freedom to use other languages in the private and public domains, to nurture them and teach them.”

Army rocket blown up during failed launch in Kodiak

A test of a new Army weapon failed 4 seconds into flight from the Kodiak Launch Complex early Monday when the rocket went awry and was blown to bits by flight controllers.

The fiery end to the rocket short-circuited the second test of a hypersonic glider designed to fly so fast it can reach anywhere on the globe in about an hour. The test target was the U.S. missile facility on Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, about 4,000 miles away.

Debris from the three-stage, solid-fuel launch vehicle rained down on the state-owned launch facility. No one was injured but buildings were damaged, said Craig Campbell, president and chief executive officer of Alaska Aerospace Corp.

The Defense Department leased the launch complex for the test, paying the state about $5 million, Campbell said.

Egypt, UAE Behind Airstrikes In Libya

“U.S. officials say Egypt and the United Arab Emirates secretly carried out airstrikes against Islamist militias inside Libya. They say the United States wasn’t notified in advance of the attacks. One official says the two countries and Saudi Arabia have been supporting a renegade general’s effort for months against Libyan militant groups, but that the Saudis don’t appear to have played a role in recent strikes. Another official says the U.S. knew about Egyptian and U.A.E. plans for a possible operation and warned them against going through with the effort. The officials weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity. The Egyptian and U.A.E. role in the strikes was first reported by The New York Times.” Source: AP

The Hug of the Century

A woman found a badly injured lion in the forest. She took it with her and nursed it back to health. When it was better, she made arrangements with a zoo to take the lion and give it a new and happy home. This video was taken when she returned to the zoo some time later to see how her lion was doing. Watch the lion’s amazing reaction when he sees her!

I went through a similar experience when I worked as a magician at Magic Mountain during summer break from college. I shared a staging area with the “Wild Animal” show which included a Canadian Timber Wolf named “Trishka.” To the animal handlers, she was a dangerous animal and they treated her as such, but having had a half-wolf/half collie as a pet during my childhood I recognized Trishka as being lonely and in need of some affection, and by summer’s end we were great friends, much to the amazement of the handlers. 6 years later while visiting Magic Mountain as an ordinary tourist with some relatives, I spotted Trishka, fully grown and relegated to a remote cage, and called her name. She responded by bounding all over her enclosure, yipping, and wagging her tail, making it clear she remembered who I was.

Friends of Israel

On July 23rd, officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee—the powerful lobbying group known as AIPAC—gathered in a conference room at the Capitol for a closed meeting with a dozen Democratic senators. The agenda of the meeting, which was attended by other Jewish leaders as well, was the war in the Gaza Strip. In the century-long conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the previous two weeks had been particularly harrowing. In Israeli towns and cities, families heard sirens warning of incoming rockets and raced to shelters. In Gaza, there were scenes of utter devastation, with hundreds of Palestinian children dead from bombing and mortar fire. The Israeli government claimed that it had taken extraordinary measures to minimize civilian casualties, but the United Nations was launching an inquiry into possible war crimes.

It is very simple here: the current Israeli government, from Netanyahu to the Knesset, to the IDF, is a government of pure genocide against the Palestinian people.

The killing of innocent civilians is a war crime: Israel has been doing this with impunity, and should be brought up for war crimes by both the ICC and the UN. Of course, in the UN’s Security Council, such a move will always be vetoed by the US.

But the next thing this Administration should do (IF it had any male attributes) is immediately stop all military and financial aid to Israel.

Just stop it and now, because such aid is illegal under the Symington Amendment, because Israel is a nuclear armed country which refuses to sign the NNPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected. How can we respect a government which flouts the laws it has created by ignoring them?!? The short answer is, not much.

What may be in the best interests of the Israeli government may well NOT be in the best interests of this country. Let’s say, a war by the US against Iran, in which Russia may well join on the Iranian side. Israel, even though it is not a party to the P5+1 negotiations on Iran’s nuclear energy program, is pushing as hard as possible for these talks to end in abject failure, opening the gap for a possible US/Israeli military action against it.

And by supporting Israel financially, economically, and militarily, Congress is putting a foreign country ahead of any of the true needs and concerns of American citizens. We have been sold out, and rendered irrelevant, because of all the huge amounts of money AIPAC spends to get their guys elected, so that they come to the “right decisions” concerning Israel.

Right now, Israel needs to become as isolated as humanly possible, to get the carnage in Gaza to stop. And as individuals, you have not only the right to boycott any Israeli products; it is also your responsibility right now.

The police are WRONG: Watching YouTube videos is NOT illegal

I favour an alternative explanation: that the British police now truly believe they have the right to state that something’s illegal even when that’s not the case: “So what if it’s not against the law, you shouldn’t be doing it anyway.” This attitude of “we know best, to hell with laws and rules” trickles down from the very top of government. Look at how Theresa May rushed new laws through Parliament to legalise indiscriminate mass surveillance by GCHQ and others after the EU declared it was unlawful.

That isn’t the action of someone who abides by the rule of law. That’s what you do when you’re a power-crazed bully who won’t take no for an answer

Liberia: Dogs Feed On Ebola Victims

The residents of the Mount Barclay Community within the Johnsonville Township, outside of Monrovia woke up on last Friday morning in total dismay when the remains of dead Ebola victims were reportedly seen, eaten by dogs, something reminiscent of the brutal civil war here, when dogs ate dead bodies on the streets.

The Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, buried some unaccounted-for corpses, suspected to have died from the Ebola Virus in that township few weeks ago.

The burial was done in a hurry at night following a standoff in the day between residence and the Ministry of Health burial team. The former had refused to grant the authority a piece of land to carry out the burial. The dogs, in their numbers, were seen pulling the bodies out of the [shallow] grave and hastily eating them.

Prof. Omid Safi: Majority of Young Americans Don’t Support Israel Anymore

According to Prof. Omid Safi, although the Western governments have been mostly silent on the carnage of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the people in different countries, from France to Brazil and from Malaysia to Argentina have strongly stood by the people of Palestine and held massive demonstrations to voice their support for them.

“The latest studies indicate that now a majority of younger people in America are no longer supportive of Israeli policies,” said Prof. Safi in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency. “For the first time, many Americans are able to see firsthand the reality of the brutal oppression that Palestinians have been suffering from for decades. Second, there is a translation of the Palestinian cause from an “Arab cause” or a “Muslim cause” to a humanitarian cause,” he added.

“Many people are increasingly able to relate to Palestine as what it is and what it has been for decades: a human rights catastrophe,” Safi noted.

Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance: Stephen Lendman

An American political commentator says Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance, and she was a wretched secretary of state.

Stephen Lendman, a writer, syndicated columnist, peace activist and radio show host, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday while commenting on Republican Senator Rand Paul’s description of Clinton as being a “gung-ho, war hawk”.

“Hillary Clinton certainly is in the news these days. She gets a lot of comments made about her with [the] many things that she is involved in and certainly because at this stage of the game – which is very early – she is far away the leading candidate [for the] Democrat [presidential] nomination in 2016,” Lendman said.

Experimental hypersonic SUPERMISSILE destroyed 4 SECONDS after US launched it

The US military has been forced to destroy a top secret hypersonic weapon just four seconds after its test flight begun.

The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW) is designed to reach Mach 6 – or six times the speed of sound (about 5,795kmph or 3,600mph) – and allow the US to strike a target anywhere in the world in less than 60 minutes.

But military bods were forced to press the self-destruct button just a few seconds after it blasted off from the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska, which is about 40km (25 miles) from the town of Kodiak.

Happily no one was hurt, but there was some damage at the test facility, although it is unclear how much destruction it caused.

Shopping Mall Terror to Control the West?

Do you remember the Kenya Mall incident. The Somali terror group Al-Shabaab, an affiliate of al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the bloody siege at the upscale mall in Nairobi. (Don’t forget – CIA created al Qaeda). Well several sources in the alternative media have reported in detail that Kenya was a beta test for a very serious mall-attack-plan in the US.

And this, it is alleged, is designed to create havoc and fear – and allow for the complete import of [Martial] Law in America – and justify the breakdown of the constitution, civil liberties and thus the final and complete control of a shadow government over Washington.

Now this sounds fanciful. Does it?

Colonization by Bankruptcy: The High-stakes Chess Match for Argentina

Argentina is playing hardball with the vulture funds, which have been trying to force it into an involuntary bankruptcy. The vultures are demanding what amounts to a 600% return on bonds bought for pennies on the dollar, defeating a 2005 settlement in which 92% of creditors agreed to accept a 70% haircut on their bonds. A US court has backed the vulture funds; but last week, Argentina sidestepped its jurisdiction by transferring the trustee for payment from Bank of New York Mellon to its own central bank. That play, if approved by the Argentine Congress, will allow the country to continue making payments under its 2005 settlement, avoiding default on the majority of its bonds.

Outrage as Burger King eyes move to Canada over taxes

What Burger King is trying to do here is called ” corporate inversion”. This means a U.S. Corporation buys a foreign company and relocates its headquarters to their country and avoids the crippling Corporate tax rate in the U.S. It’s 35% here while in the rest of the world it’s about averaging 20% (Ireland is 15%). This saves billions of dollars in taxes for them.

When you have a private central bank, debt always grows faster than the money with which to pay that debt, until the accumulated debt forces the government into higher taxation and lower spending on infrastructure needed to support business, until companies and individuals are left with no choice but to relocate to more attractive locations. Burger King is not the villain here. The villain is the US Government which 100 years ago sold the American people back into the slavery of the very same system of predatory banking we fought a revolution to break free of, and for that last 100 years refusing to do anything about it, even as the obvious danger signs flashed before their eyes.

Syrian Government: James Foley Killed a Year Ago

Fresh doubt has been thrown on the narrative behind the James Foley beheading video after a Syrian government spokesperson claimed that the American journalist was killed by ISIS militants a year ago.

Following the release of a video last week which purported to show the murder of Foley, top forensic experts concluded that the footage was staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques,” concurring with Infowars’ analysis that the video was highly dubious given that it was immediately used as justification for military strikes on Syria.

US policies can result in next World War: American journalist

Washington’s policies can “explode the entire Middle East” and they can “result in the next World War,” an American political commentator says.

In an interview with Press TV on Monday, James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com, said US military interventions in other countries, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq, have created brutal terrorist groups like ISIL.

ISIL “is the result of the failed US invasion of Iraq,” Morris said.

Russian Military Servicemen Detained by Ukraine Accidentally Cross Border – Source

Top general: Islamic State extremists will ‘soon’ pose a threat to the United States

The US military’s top general believes Islamic State extremists will “soon” pose a threat to America and Europe and that an international coalition will be needed to confront it, his spokesman said Monday.

US commanders are preparing possible “options” to counter IS jihadists both in Iraq as well as Syria, according to General Martin Dempsey’s spokesman, Colonel Ed Thomas.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel adopted a more strident tone last week at a Pentagon news conference, suggesting the IS militants presented a dire threat that surpassed the danger posed by the Al-Qaeda network.

But Pentagon officials insisted Hagel and Dempsey shared the same views on the IS.

Dempsey “believes that ISIS (Islamic State) is a regional threat that will soon become a threat to the United States and Europe,” Thomas said in a statement.

“He (Dempsey) believes that ISIS must be pressured both in Iraq and in Syria,” he added.

A memo to Defense Secretary Hagel and General Dempsey: could you possibly telegraph anymore loudly that some elements in this country are gearing up for another false flag, upon which to justify yet more war against….whoever the next target is supposed to be, to prevent the collapse of the US dollar?

Gentlemen, I would strongly suggest to you that IF there is another false flag in this country, skeptical, war-weary Americans will have no stomach for it whatsoever.

Iraq has cratered; Afghanistan is cratering, and Libya has cratered, not to mention other military interventions we’re not supposed to know about (like the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen.)

And if such an even happens, it will demonstrate, incontrovertibly, that everything this country’s military and security agencies have done to prevent it have been absolutely, thoroughly, useless and irrelevant!!

And that, gentlemen,is when the American people will wake up, and get angry.

Israel bombs two Gaza City tower blocks

Israel has bombed two Gaza City high-rises with dozens of homes and shops, causing one building to collapse and severely damaging the other.

In the past, the military has hit targets in high-rises in pinpoint strikes, but left the buildings standing. Since Saturday, it has toppled or destroyed five towers and shopping complexes in an apparent new tactic aimed at increasing pressure on Hamas.

None of these buildings collapsed into its own footprint!

Syria ready to cooperate with U.S. and others to stop Islamic State

The UN on Monday accused jihadists in Iraq of “ethnic and religious cleansing” as the most senior U.S. military officer warned they will soon threaten America and Europe.

As condemnation of the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group mounted, Syria — a pariah over its bloody crackdown on opponents of President Bashar al-Assad’s rule — said it was ready to work with the global community against “terrorism.”

UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said abuses by IS and affiliated groups in Iraq against non-Arab ethnic groups and non-Sunni Muslims involved targeted killings, forced conversions, abductions, trafficking, and destruction of holy and cultural sites.

“They are systematically targeting men, women and children based on their ethnic, religious or sectarian affiliation and are ruthlessly carrying out widespread ethnic and religious cleansing in the areas under their control,” Pillay said.

“Such persecution would amount to crimes against humanity,” she added, in a statement.

My goodness, what a difference a year makes!

Was it not just a year ago that John Kerry and President Obama were on the verge of ordering air strikes against Syria for allegedly hitting its own population with poison gas?!?

And the two people who talked them out of that foolishness were none other than Russia’s Vlad Putin and Sergei Lavrov, now demonized today, because they protested the illegal replacement of the duly elected Ukrainian government in a US/EU/UCB-backed putsch.

In the Middle East there is a saying: the enemy of my enemy is my friend. And this is nowhere proven more true than the US’s sudden turnabout regarding Syria and the IS.

Ferguson Gang Leader Admits “Eric Holder Paid Us To Start Riots”

Evidence has been uncovered showing Eric Holder contributed funds to Ferguson’s gang population as incentive to loot and spread civil unrest in the area. These angry, government-sponsored terrorists have systematically infiltrated peaceful protests with the intention of escalating the situation and inciting riots.

A local gang leader came forward last week after being arrested during a night of mass-looting. The unnamed criminal is using his information to bargain for a reduced sentence.

Allegedly, Holder’s goal behind pouring the proverbial gasoline on an already volatile scene is to test militarized police response in a martial law scenario. It is also suspected that the riots have been started as the latest in distractions from the diabolical duo of Obama and Holder. This isn’t the first time they have created a media bait-and-switch to cover up any of their numerous crimes and blunders.

6 Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza

Six Palestinians were killed on Tuesday in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, witnesses said.

India, Pakistan intensify cross-border firing as ties sour

Indian and Pakistani troops intensified firing across the border over the weekend killing at least four, an Indian official said on Sunday, straining ties between the arch rivals who recently called off top-level diplomatic talks.

Last week India said its foreign secretary would not meet with her Pakistani counterpart as scheduled on Monday because of plans by Pakistan to consult separatists from the border state of Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the meeting.
The cancellation dashed any hopes of near-term peace deliberations, chances of which had risen after Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif attended the inauguration of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about three months ago.

A war between these nuclear-armed neighbors would be horrific for the region, and possibly lethal for the world, depending upon which countries would be on the side of India, and which would align with Pakistan.

Indian controlled Kashmir, in its entirety, should be given a referendum as to whether it wants to stay with India, or Pakistan, or become an independent country on it own.

Unfortunately, India refuses to let this happen, and Kashmiris are understandably upset by this.

Oklahoma City bombing: Claims of second accomplice and FBI intimidation

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, US District Judge Clark Waddoups scheduled a November 13th hearing on the matter, in which Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue accused the FBI of threatening to eliminate a former undercover agent’s health benefits if he took the stand. The former agent reportedly knew convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh.

The core of the issue is that Trentadue claims the FBI has surveillance video revealing McVeigh carrying out the Oklahoma City bombing with an accomplice. The FBI adamantly denies that such video exists, and the government has insisted repeatedly that McVeigh acted alone in the event that killed 168 people.

The witness involved in this whole situation, John Matthews, was scheduled to testify regarding this alleged video in July, but withdrew at the last minute. Trentadue – as well as a freelance journalist named Roger Charles – stated that when he spoke with Matthews about his absence, the former agent told them the FBI threatened him.

Like its other associated agencies, the FBI no longer has any credibility whatsoever.

And the only thing it can do to protect its pathological incompetence (or its demonstrated desire to push specific outcomes in its investigations) is threaten.

The End of Liberal Zionism

The New York Times, Sunday Review, AUG. 22, 2014
Israel’s Move to the Right Challenges Diaspora Jews

Pushed to the political margins in Israel and increasingly irrelevant in the Diaspora, liberal Zionism not only lacks agency; worse, it provides cover for the supremacist Zionism dominant in Israel today. Liberal Zionists have become an obstacle to the emergence of a Diaspora Jewish movement that could actually be an agent of change.

Liberal Zionists are at a crossroads. The original tradition of combining Zionism and liberalism — which meant ending the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, supporting a Palestinian state as well as a Jewish state with a permanent Jewish majority, and standing behind Israel when it was threatened — was well intentioned. But everything liberal Zionists stand for is now in doubt.

Horrifying accidents at infectious disease labs hidden from the public, ‘cloaked in secrecy’

Literally hundreds of incidents involving viruses, bacteria and toxins that pose major bioterror risks to both people and agriculture have been reported to federal regulators from 2008 through 2012, according to government reports obtained and reviewed by USA Today.

More than half of the over 1,100 incidents were serious enough that laboratory workers had to have medical evaluations and/or treatment, the reports note. And in five of the incidents, regulators confirmed that lab workers had been either infected or sickened, though all recovered

Central Nevada Ranchers Fighting BLM Over Grazing Rights

In May the Bureau of Land Management relented and announced it had come to a year-long deal with ranchers on the Argenta allotment on Mount Lewis in the Battle Mountain District to allow grazing. The BLM reneged.

At the end of July the BLM told ranchers using Mount Lewis that “drought triggers” had been met and cattle must be removed in seven days.

“We must remove the cattle from our summer grazing country on the mountain, where there is ample feed and adequate water, to the flat, where there is very little of either,” rancher Pete Tomera told the Elko Daily Free Press.

Bob Schweigert of Intermountain Range Consultants in Winnemucca says ranchers had to sign new grazing agreements with the BLM in May and the BLM is violating terms of those agreements.

Unprecedented number of health care workers infected with Ebola

More than 240 doctors and nurses working in West Africa to try to contain the Ebola epidemic have become infected with the illness, and more than 120 have died, the World Health Organization says.

The health agency issued a statement Tuesday detailing the “unprecedented” toll that Ebola is taking on health workers who have been treating infected patients in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.

“Ebola has taken the lives of prominent doctors in Sierra Leone and Liberia, depriving these countries not only of experienced and dedicated medical care but also of inspiring national heroes,” the WHO said.

Playwright Wallace Shawn translates ADL ad justifying Israeli child murder into plain English

Playwright and actor Wallace Shawn has responded to this Anti-Defamation League (ADL) ad blaming Palestinians for Israel’s mass slaughter of children in Gaza.

Shawn’s brilliant “translation” of the ad into plain English is below.

Five hundred and sixteen children are among the 2,142 Palestinians killed by Israel’s current bombardment of the Gaza Strip, according to the latest tally from Al Mezan Center for Human Rights.

The ad, which appeared in The Hollywood Reporter, was signed by a number of show business executives. It quotes an infamous statement by Golda Meir, the American colonial settler in Palestine who became Israel’s prime minister, justifying Israel’s slaughter of Arab children during her time

Over $455,000 Seized from Medical Marijuana Patient Slapped with Civil Asset Forfeiture

In March 2013, Steve Oates’ home in Goodyear, Ariz. was stormed by police, SWAT, and DEA agents because of a marijuana grow room in the guest house.

“It was like something you see in the movies. It was 6:30 in the morning, and basically you hear ‘bang! bang! bang!’ on the door, and next thing you know you hear the crash of a battering ram,” says Oates.

Oates’ doctor had recommended medicinal marijuana for Oates’ chronic back pain, so he attained a medical marijuana card with cultivation rights. Dispensaries were still few and far between at the time, and Oates didn’t trust Craigslist for his medicine

Israel amasses troops for fresh incursion into Gaza

Tel Aviv has deployed more soldiers and tanks near the Gaza Strip border as the Israeli army is preparing for a fresh ground incursion into the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Israeli military amassed more regular troops and mobilized a number of reservist soldiers near Gaza on Tuesday.

The deployment of more troops and tanks near the Gaza comes as Israeli fighter jets continue to target the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Sources say at least two Palestinians lost their lives in the latest Israeli air raids in the impoverished region. Israeli warplanes have pounded the sliver nearly 20 times since the early hours of Tuesday.

Why Does a Florida County Police Department Need Eight $18 Million Apache Attack Helicopters?

Earlier this week we published a link to an online database where you can look to see what kind of military equipment your local county is stockpiling. Several other publications have linked to this database as well. I heard from a couple of people that it might not be a 100% comprehensive list, but others are discovering that, whether it is comprehensive or not, there is a lot to be learned from looking in that database.

Imagine looking and finding out that your county police bought 8 Apache Helicopters and had done so over three years ago. That is exactly the experience from one person who searched the database for purchases in Brevard County, Florida

California nuclear plant gets thumbs down from expert over quake fears

A confidential report by a senior nuclear expert calls on regulators to close California’s last nuclear plant until it can be established the facility can survive a powerful earthquake, according to an exclusive AP report.

The Diablo Canyon Power Plant, which was built near three geographical fault lines, provides electricity needs for more than 2.2 million people in America’s largest state. However, a confidential report by the plant’s former inspector, Michael Peck, is calling on federal regulators to pull the plug on the facility.

Following the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in 2013, 30-year-old Diablo Canyon is the sole remaining nuclear energy supplier in California.

Peck warned in his 2013 report, which was obtained and verified by the Associated Press, that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is failing to maintain safety standards previously put in place for the facility’s operation.

American Heavy Tanks to be Stored in Mountains of Norway – Reports

US cargo ship USNS PFC Dewayne T. Williams is expected to arrive in the small Norwegian village of Namdalseid on August 10, bringing heavy tanks, armored personnel carriers and landing crafts, the local Adresseavisen newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The cargo will include third-generation main battle tanks of the M1A1 Abrams type. This new, heavier equipment will replace trucks and personnel carriers which were previously stored in the mountain bunkers of Central Norway.

Local defense sources, cited by the Norwegian Aftenposten newspaper, say that the US’ decision to change war equipment stored in Norway was made on the basis of experiences from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Did a Second ISIS Militant Kill James Foley? [Major CNN Backpeddling!]

You know it’s all theater when film terms, like “continuity,” get tossed into CNN’s reports like they are everyday terminology. I’m surprised the script supervisor — uh, I mean reporter — didn’t call the edits exactly what they are — ‘jump cuts.’

Ironically the alleged beheading victim’s last name, Foley, is also post-production filmmaking term. (Often times, these idiots think they are being witty when they are just being ignorant to our intelligence, (e.g. “the base” is al Qaeda).

These reporters are acting like first-year slacker film students trying to defend their crappy project, and one of the saddest parts is that they are getting paid for their shoddy work.

Either way — the fact that CNN is even saying that its evidence suggests at least one person involved is just a voice-actor just discredits the whole video even more. (At least in a real court of law it would.)

Russia’s Humanitarian ‘Invasion’

Official Washington’s war-hysteria machine is running at full speed again after Russia unilaterally dispatched a convoy of trucks carrying humanitarian supplies to the blockaded Ukrainian city of Luhansk.

Before dawn broke in Washington on Saturday, “Ukrainian pro-Russian separatists” – more accurately described as federalists of southeast Ukraine who oppose last February’s coup in Kiev – unloaded desperately needed provisions from some 280 Russian trucks in Luhansk, Ukraine. The West accused those trucks of “invading” Ukraine on Friday, but it was a record short invasion; after delivering their loads of humanitarian supplies, many of the trucks promptly returned to Russia.

“I happen to know what a Russian invasion looks like, and this isn’t it. Forty-six years ago, I was ten miles from the border of Czechoslovakia when Russian tanks stormed in to crush the “Prague Spring” experiment in democracy. The attack was brutal.” ~ Ray McGovern

Iran ‘will arm Palestinians’ after downing Israeli drone

Tehran will “accelerate” arming Palestinians in retaliation for Israel’s deploying a spy drone over Iran, which was shot down, a military commander said Monday.

Iran, which does not recognize the legitimacy of Israel as a state, has confirmed that it supplied Palestinian fighters from Hamas and Islamic Jihad with the technology for the rockets that have been fired into Israel from Gaza since July 8.

“We will accelerate the arming of the West Bank and we reserve the right to give any response,” said Brig. Gen. Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of aerial forces of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, in a statement on its official website sepahnews.com.

Grady promoted a plan to put more of those funds into riskier investments managed by Wall Street firms. Though this would entail higher fees, Grady said the strategy would “maximize returns while appropriately managing risk.”

A sign that any remaining trace-amounts of confidence in the peso were evaporating.

Ebola Among Health Workers: More Than 240 Sick, More Than 120 Dead…. If Hundreds Of Doctors And Nurses Are Becoming Infected With Ebola, What Chance Is The General Public Going To Have?

If hundreds of doctors and nurses are becoming infected with Ebola, what chance is the general public going to have? This is not just a question that many of us are asking. As you will see below, this is a question that the World Health Organization is asking. When dozens of health workers started getting Ebola, nobody could explain how it was happening. More precautions were taken and health workers were even more careful than before. Then the number of sick health workers rose to 170. Even more measures were taken to keep doctors and nurses from getting the disease, but now just a couple of weeks later we have learned that a total of 240 health workers have contracted the virus andmore than 120 of them have died. Overall, more than 2,600 peoplehave been infected with Ebola since this outbreak began and more than 1,400 people have died.

NSA built “Google-like” interface to scan 850+ billion metadata records

According to newly published documents, the National Security Agency has built a “Google-like” search interface for its vast database of metadata, and the agency shares it with dozens of other American intelligence agencies. The new documents are part of the Snowden leaks and were first published on Monday by The Intercept.

The new search tool, called ICREACH, is described in an internal NSA presentation as a “large scale expansion of communications metadata shared with [intelligence community] partners.” That same presentation shows that ICREACH has been operational since the pilot launched in May 2007. Not only is data being shared to more agencies, but there are more types of such data being shared—ICREACH searches over 850 billion records.

New data types being shared include IMEI numbers (a unique identifier on each mobile handset), IMSI (another unique identifier for SIM cards), GPS coordinates, e-mail address, and chat handles, among others.

The person: London mayor Boris Johnson who as the Guardian reports, has called for the presumption of innocence to be reversed in cases where Britons travel to Iraq or Syria and said he wants the jihadist who beheaded an American journalist to be killed in a bomb attack. If Johnson’s proposal for a “swift and minor” law change passes, any Brit traveling to Iraq or Syria will automatically be branded a terrorist and suffer the appropriate consequences.

Iran State TV Airs Footage Of “Downed Israeli Drone”

As Iran continues to negotiate with world powers over its controversial (but purely for peaceful purposes, of course) nuclear program – with hard-liners demanding more concessions from the West – The Telegraph reports that a brief video, which aired on the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV, shows what the channel says are parts of an Israeli drone, scattered in an unidentified desert area. Text accompanying the footage says the drone was downed on Saturday and identifies it as a Hermes 450, a known Israeli model. The Iranian TV station also says the model is dubbed “Spy Goddess.” However, as The Telegraph adds, there were no visible Israeli markings in the footage and Israel’s military has declined comment on the matter… and Iran will sue Israel legally over its alleged violation of Iran’s air space.

Israel used unmarked aircraft to attack the USS Liberty, so the absence of markings doesn’t mean much.

VA pays out $200 million for nearly 1,000 veterans’ wrongful deaths

An Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder and a history of drug dependency is found dead on the floor of his room at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in West Los Angeles after doctors give him a 30-day supply of the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam and a 15-day supply of methadone.

In Shreveport, La., a veteran overdoses on morphine while housed in a locked VA psychiatric unit. In a Minnesota VA psych ward, a veteran shoots himself in the head. In Portland, Ore., a delusional veteran jumps off the roof of the VA hospital.

These are some of the deaths that resulted in more than $200 million in wrongful death payments by the Department of Veterans Affairs in the decade after 9/11, according to VA data obtained by The Center for Investigative Reporting.

ZMAP FAILURE! Liberia: Doctor given experimental Ebola drug dies

 

 

 

Large number of Fukushima youth diagnosed with cancer

The number of Fukushima youth diagnosed with definitive or suspected thyroid gland cancer now reaches 104, according to a Japanese newspaper’s analysis of government data.

There were 300,000 total youth in the Fukushima prefecture who were aged 18 or younger at the time of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. Of the 104 children whose government-administered thyroid gland tests showed positive results, 57 have been diagnosed with a definitive case of the disease, which is frequently linked to radiation exposure, Asahi Shimbun reported Sunday.

Airborne transmission of Ebola – updated

The American public has been misinformed regarding human-to-human transmission of Ebola. Assurances that Ebola can be transmitted only through direct contact with the body or body fluids of victims needs to be seriously scrutinized in the wake of the current West African outbreak. The Canadian Health Dept. states that airborne transmission of Ebola is strongly suspected and the CDC admits that Ebola can be transmitted in situations where there is no physical contact between people, i.e.: via direct airborne inhalation into the lungs or into the eyes, or via contact with airborne fomites which adhere to nearby surfaces, where individuals are separated by 3 feet. That helps explain why 81 doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers have died in West Africa to date. These courageous health care providers use careful CDC level barrier precautions such as gowns, gloves and head cover, but it appears they have inadequate respiratory and eye protection.

On Behalf of Monsanto: GMO Food Crops for Ukraine’s Bread Basket. The Role of Public Relations Firm Hill and Knowlton.

Finally, a little-known aspect of the crisis in Ukraine is receiving some international attention. On July 28, the California-based Oakland Institute released a report revealing that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), under terms of their $17 billion loan to Ukraine, would open that country to genetically-modified (GM) crops and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture. The report is entitled “Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict.” [1]

In late 2013, the then president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, rejected a European Union association agreement tied to the $17 billion IMF loan, whose terms are only now being revealed. Instead, Yanukovych chose a Russian aid package worth $15 billion plus a discount on Russian natural gas. His decision was a major factor in the ensuing deadly protests that led to his ouster from office in February 2014 and the ongoing crisis.

Blood-splattered floors at hospital where brave UK nurse got ebola

Medics told yesterday of the stressful and desperate conditions in the makeshift ebola wards where the British victim worked.

Staff were too scared to come to work at Kenema government hospital where the floors were left splashed with blood.

The 350-bed hospital is a cluster of small cinder-block buildings in the centre of Kenema, the third largest city in Sierra Leone and a hot-spot for ebola.

The isolation units where the afflicted are taken are in temporary covered shelters with concrete floors, plastic sheeting for walls and tin roofs.

The doctors and nurses wear masks, goggles and impermeable Tyvek safety suits.

The U.S. Government’s Creeping War on Journalists

As states move to hide details of government deals with Wall Street, and as politicians come up with new arguments to defend secrecy, a study released earlier this month revealed that many government information officers block specific journalists they don’t like from accessing information. The news comes as 47 federal inspectors general sent a letter to lawmakers criticizing “serious limitations on access to records” that they say have “impeded” their oversight work.

Hundreds will be attending local schools while they wait for their immigration cases to conclude, and most area school systems are gearing up to address the educational and emotional needs of these often traumatized kids.

 

Hillary Clinton just lost the White House in Gaza

Famously, Hillary Clinton lost her bid to be president in 2008 six years before the election, when she cast a vote for the Iraq war. Barack Obama, who’d been against that war as a nobody state senator in Illinois, was able to run to her left in appealing to the Democratic Party base, and win the nomination.

Hillary’s done it again. Her pro-war comments in that famous interview two weeks ago have painted her into a right wing neoconservative corner. In 2016, a Democratic candidate will again emerge to run to her left and win the party base, again because of pro-war positioning on the Middle East that Hillary has undertaken in order to please neoconservatives. . .

. . . And once again, Hillary Clinton will pay for this belligerency; she won’t tenant the White House.

Cops more dangerous to America than ISIS

“The Ferguson incident has exposed the underbelly of the United States and now everyone is starting to pay attention that there is a higher risk of being killed by police even when they chase or shoot at people who need not be you. The risk is 800% greater that you will be killed by POLICE rather than a terrorist,” writes Martin Armstrong.

STOLEN IDENTITY?

 

 

The Old World Order

The immediate and obvious point to make here is that readers should/must immediately become deeply suspicious any time we are bombarded with a label which contains the word “new”. Implicit in every such label (by definition) is the concept that “this time it’s different”, because if it wasn’t different it wouldn’t be “new”.

“This time it’s different” is a cliché in Western societies. But it’s not revered as an aphorism of wisdom. Rather, it is scorned as the mantra of idiots. This same point was made in a previous commentary which debunked and rejected the ludicrous propaganda euphemism: “The New Normal”. The same analysis applies to both propaganda lies.

WHAT IF THERE IS A ‘BANG’ INSIDE THE UNITED STATES?

Most people, myself included, are of the opinion that such an event will be another fake terror attack, like 9-11, to be blamed on the target of the pending invasion but actually carried out by the US and Israel. According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans hold that view of 9-11 itself. After the lie about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq and the lie Saddam’s nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq, prudence demands we expect more of the same from our “leaders.”

But for the hard core true believers, the men and women so scared of the US Government that they will not even allow the merest hint of doubt or question to enter their minds, lest their souls be eternally damned, the ones so wrapped in the flag that all the blood to their brains has been cut off, I will tell you what another big “bang” inside the US is likely to mean to them.

A big “bang” means the Department of Homeland Security is a total failure.

 

Federal Law Ordering US Attorney General To Gather Data On Police Excessive Force Has Been Ignored For 20 Years

Are police officers getting worse or is this apparent increase in excessive force nothing more than a reflection of the increase in unofficial documentation and public scrutiny? What we do know is that as crime has gone down, police forces have escalated their acquisitions of military gear and weapons. With options for lethal and less-lethal force continually expanding, it seems that deployment of force in excess of what the situation requires has become the new normal, but it’s tough to find hard data that backs up these impressions.

In the half-hour or so after his arrest late one night last September, Azucena said over and over that he was struggling for breath. Numerous LAPD officers and sergeants heard his pleas for medical attention but ignored them even as his condition visibly worsened.

Ferguson is not just Missouri’s shame

Are you tired of 24/7 Ferguson TV yet? Sure you are. That’s the eighth deadly sin: media numbing apathy. Worse, believing Ferguson is just a Missouri shame — Ferguson is serial historical murder incorporated, gone viral.

Abolish the TSA

Recently, there has been a public backlash against new airport screening procedures. Passengers rightfully object to scanners that reveal their naked bodies, and to enhanced pat-downs that would be considered sexual assault anywhere else.

John Tyner summed up this backlash perfectly: “Don’t touch my junk!”

We object to these new procedures. They are just the latest symptoms of a series indignities imposed upon us since 9/11, such as . . .

Being forced to remove belts and shoes when screened
Seeing toothpaste and nail clippers confiscated

The underlying, absurd logic is that if you intend to board an airplane, you sacrifice your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. The right to travel—as fundamental a right as there is in a free society—has been turned on its head.

Even when the TSA tries to be helpful, it humiliates us. For instance, the TSA’s PreCheck program is designed to speed people through security checkpoints.

6 Realities of the Secret World of Paid TV Audience Members

Much to the consternation of the world’s laugh track aficionados (hi, you two!), most game shows, talk shows, and sitcoms are still filmed in front of a live studio audience. But hasn’t it always seemed a little odd that there are apparently tons of tourists for whom there is nothing better to do in Manhattan than sit in on an episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Sure, people like Jon Stewart can pull in a crowd, but who the hell are all these people laughing at Jay Leno’s terrible jokes?

That would be me. I’m more than happy to do all those things and more, because they pay me to do them. Almost every show that features a live studio audience has hired me or people like me. Here’s what I learned getting paid to pretend to be interested.

The United Police States of America

Ferguson, Missouri’s police department has released its report on the August 9th shooting death of teenager Michael Brown, a redacted document that ACLU attorney Tony Rothert says violates Missouri’s Sunshine Law by omitting key information.

The 21st century Blitzkrieg

Two horrors have dwelt in my mind for the last twenty years, ever since I read reports about terrorist groups while an impressionable young intelligence officer.

The first involves the use of power tools as instruments of torture; drills, industrial sanders, angle grinders. This is no secret now and the meme has been much used and abused by Hollywood and series such as “24″, but I still feel uncomfortable every time I am dragged into the “boy toy” section of a home improvement mega-store.

So are they Martians? Alien invaders from Planet X? Destroyer spacecraft from the movie Independence Day?

The word movie is the clue. Chuck Hagel and Martin Dempsey were pure Hollywood. It only needed Tom Cruise at their press conference to utter the words “Mission impossible”. Who writes this God-awful script? Can’t the US Defence Secretary and his joint chiefs chairman do better than this?

Fallout from campus sexual assault hysteria: College men now suspicious of women

Thanks to an increased focus on sexual assaults on college campuses – mostly due to an overblown statistic claiming 20 percent of college women have been sexually assaulted – young college men are starting to rethink how they talk to women.

At first glance that might seem like a good thing – men learning to be more respectful of women and not be so rapey – but that’s not what this is.

This is about men actually avoiding contact with women because they’re afraid a simple kiss or date could lead to a sexual assault accusation.

Bloomberg reporters John Lauerman and Jennifer Surane interviewed multiple men from colleges like Harvard and Stanford who expressed concern over what was once known as a “hook-up culture” but is now labeled by feminists as “rape culture.” The change in terminology ensures that all responsibility is placed on men, just because of their gender.

Part 1: Dirty secrets of the worst charities

The worst charity in America operates from a metal warehouse behind a gas station in Holiday, Fla.

Every year, Kids Wish Network raises millions of dollars in donations in the name of dying children and their families.

Every year, it spends less than 3 cents on the dollar helping kids.

Most of the rest gets diverted to enrich the charity’s operators and the for-profit companies Kids Wish hires to drum up donations.

In the past decade alone, Kids Wish has channeled nearly $110 million donated for sick children to its corporate solicitors. An additional $4.8 million has gone to pay the charity’s founder and his own consulting firms.

No charity in the nation has siphoned more money away from the needy over a longer period of time.

But Kids Wish is not an isolated case, a yearlong investigation by the Tampa Bay Times and The Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

 

Is Big Brother spying on your computer – with your own cell phone?

Did you know that those who have the right technology don’t need to access the microphone in your cell phone to listen to your conversations?

That’s not all.

You may have missed this news but Georgia Tech and MIT came up with a way that they can actually spy on your computer activity through your cell phone in pretty much the same way as a keylogger does.

This is from the study’s conclusion:

Mobile phones contain an array of powerful sensors. While access to many of the most obvious sources of information is generally restricted, the use of a number of a number of other seemingly innocuous sensors is not. In this paper, we demonstrate that unfettered access to accelerometer data allows a malicious application to recover and decode the vibrations caused by keypresses on a nearby keyboard.

 

 

Grenade Launcher, Armored Vehicles among U.S. Military’s Gifts to Ohio Law Enforcement

FBI agents to guard UK airports against jihadi fanatics

Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months.

They will monitor suspect passengers as well as ­investigate “terror hot-spots” across Britain in the wake of the beheading of American James Foley in Iraq. Last night, however, critics claimed their arrival was an admission that cuts to police and the UK Border Force had left Britain out of its depth and overwhelmed in the war on terror.

Officially, US officers who have been monitoring terrorist activity ever since the 9/11 attacks in 2001 will liaise with the Metropolitan Police’s secretive SO15 counter-terrorism command and MI5.

However, there are fears they eventually intend to conduct their own parallel investigations and recruit their own informants in UK and European jihadi circles.

UN ‘leaders’ as corrupt as US/UK/Israel: We the People must demand arrests or suffer endless war

*hyperlinks live at source*
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s official statements about Israel’s most recent armed attack upon Gaza are Orwellian lies of omission because they fail to uphold the one and only legal authority of the UN: to stop Wars of Aggression.

Allowing “developed nations” to have unlawful wars is consistent with UN history. A recent example is Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s silence for 18 months over the US/UK’s armed attacks and invasion of Iraq in official statements, to finally admit in 2004 when directly asked if that war is illegal:

“Yes, if you wish. I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN Charter. From our point of view and from the Charter point of view it was illegal.”

VICE founder, famous for truth telling, has history of lies

“Who’s heard of Vice Media? Wild, interesting effort to interest millennials who don’t read or watch established media. Global success,” tweeted Rupert Murdoch after a meeting with Smith.

Murdoch’s not the only media executive to meet with Smith — representatives from Hearst, Time Warner, Bertelsmann, Condé Nast, and even Google and YouTube have all met with him. Many have partnered with Smith.

But Smith already has a well-documented reputation for stretching the truth.

“The lie that launched an empire,” reads a section title in Smith’s Globe and Mail profile, referring to his penchant for overstating VICE’s value.

“Vice was built on lies,” Wired Magazine echoed in 2007.

VICE media is being promoted on social media as new go-to news source on the internet, yet it is just another propaganda operation.

The corporatization of privacy exploitation

Virtually all cell phones on Earth can be geographically pinpointed with the right technology, a new report suggests, and the tools that enable this tracking are becoming increasingly all too affordable.

Products that can locate a handhold phone within a city block from any corner of the globe are nothing new — the intelligence documents disclosed by former United States government contractor Edward Snowden last year have proved that the US National Security Agency is in the business of not just finding cellphones, but eavesdropping on those call and sometimes even infecting those devices.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities’ personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the “Syrian” (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

Tony Blair gives President of Kazakhstan PR advice following ‘massacre’ of unarmed protesters

Tony Blair has given the President of Kazakhstan PR tips for a speech defending the country’s human rights record in the wake of the killing of unarmed protesters by police.

More than 80 people were injured in the incident, which has since become known as the “Zhanoazen massacre” and resulted in the arrest of several opposition figures.

In the letter sent on official headed paper in July 2012, Mr Blair urged the president to tackle the “Zhanaozen issue” directly, adding: “The fact is you have made changes following it; but in any event these events, tragic though they were, should not obscure the enormous progress that Kazakhstan has made.

“Dealing with it in the way I suggest, is the best way for the western media. It will also serve as a quote that can be used in the future setting out the basic case for Kazakhstan.”

 

Nazis Splitting With Kiev Regime?

After months of denying the new regime in Kiev installed in the wake of the so-called “Euromaidan” had any significant ties to Nazism and regiments of Neo-Nazi militants found fighting in eastern Ukraine, the BBC in an article titled, “Ukraine crisis: Russian aid convoy arrives at border,” reported that:

…the leader of the ultra-nationalist Right Sector threatened to withdraw volunteers fighting on the government side.
Dmytro Yarosh said Right Sector would launch a “campaign in Kiev” if its demands, including the release of detained members, were not met within 48 hours.
He called on President Petro Poroshenko to “immediately bring order” to the Interior Ministry, which he accused of harbouring “revanchist forces”.

 

‘Independent Scotland may be blocked from EU’

Former president of the European Union’s finance council Ruairi Quinn has warned that an independent Scotland could be blocked from joining the EU.

“All [EU] member states have to agree before a new state can become a member. In my opinion, it is highly probable that at least two member states, maybe more, will vote no,” Quinn said in a statement on Monday.

He also cited Spain and Belgium as the countries that would probably reject the application of an independent Scotland to join the 28-member bloc with the aim of discouraging secessionist sentiment in Europe.

In the “unlikely” event that Scotland was admitted into the EU, it would be required to agree to join the euro, Quinn added.

Russia Steps Up: ‘Major Fines’ for Corporations Without GMO Labeling

As the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and government officials in Congress continue to ignore America’s pleas for GMO labeling, the Russian government’s legislative commission has moved another step toward GMO-rejection, approving a bill to charge steep penalties for GMO labeling violations.

Submitted by the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Protection and Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor), the bill will charge big fines for vague or unclear labeling of any food which contains genetically modified ingredients. Individual entrepreneurs will be fined up to 50,000 rubles ($1,300), and the products confiscated, while larger businesses will face fines of up to 150,000 rubles (over $4,000).

President Putin has said that Russia must protect its citizens from over-consumption of products containing genetically modified organisms due to serious health concerns associated with these crops.

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up

In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims.

Here We Go Again: Ukraine Claims It Destroyed Two Tanks That Entered From Russia

It’s Monday; which means its time to ramp up the war rhetoric once again as another weekend goes by without ‘escalation’. Ukraine’s military spokesman Lysenko, or as he is better known as Lie-senko for those who actually ask for some evidence of anything that he claims, says, suggests or otherwise talks about, is reporting,via Bloomberg, that:

US, NATO Using Humanitarian Aid Delivery To Escalate Ukraine Tensions

A convoy of trucks carrying humanitarian supplies to those living in war-torn eastern Ukraine crossed the border back into Russia on Saturday following what Moscow called a “successful” mission to deliver the aid, but what Ukraine called a “direct invasion” of its territory.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which has been monitoring movements across the border, confirmed in a statement that all 227 vehicles had left Ukraine and crossed back into Russia.

Shell’s ex-CEO says sanctions on Russia don’t work

The former head of Royal Dutch Shell, Jeroen van der Veer, has said sanctions on Russia just “lead to frustration”, as they did not produce their desired effect and led to more sanctions.

“The sanctions do not work. They lead to counter sanctions, which lead to frustration and never solve anything. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s popularity in Russia does not wane in the wake of the sanctions. It increases,” Jeroen van der Veer said on Sunday during a Dutch TV program.

He said constructive political dialogue was the first thing Russia and Ukraine needed to establish, though acknowledging it would be difficult.

“Moscow and Kiev should be willing to talk and Russia should respect the Ukrainian borders,” he said.

Van der Veer began working for Shell in 1971 and was its CEO until 2009.

In July the West imposed sectorial economic sanctions on Russia, including a ban on selling it dual–use technology, and access to sensitive oil technology

Ukraine Parliament Speaker Says Military Operation Likely to End by October

Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said Sunday that Kiev was apparently planning to end its military operation in the restive eastern territories by October, citing the need to hold an early parliamentary election.

What old rubber lips meant to say but couldn’t, is that the real reason wanting to end its assault on the East of Ukraine by October is that winter will be fast approaching and Kiev will already be neck-deep in a mess of its own making.

‘Thanks, Putin!’: Finland flooded with cut-price ‘Putin cheese’ as Russia turns away European exports

Cheese lovers may want to consider a brief holiday in Finland, where Russian sanctions over Ukraine have prompted huge price cuts, causing a rush to supermarket chiller cabinets across the country.

One of Finland’s most popular cheeses, Oltermanni, is being sold at roughly half the usual price as retailers try to shift an influx of the product that had been destined for Russia.

Moments after the retailer, S Group, announced the reduction, the supermarket’s website crashed with demand.

Such is the fame of the discount that Oltermanni has been dubbed “Putin cheese” and signs have popped up in stores thanking the Russian President.

 

Councils call for change in junk mail laws to stop them being forced to sell voters’ data

Councils will today call for a change in the law to prevent them having to sell voters’ personal details to junk mail firms.

Local authorities have come under fire from privacy campaigners for effectively aiding the junk mail barons who bombard families with unwanted leaflets and letters.

Details from the electoral roll are routinely sold on to direct marketing firms, estate agents, fast food outlets and others who contribute to Britain’s annual mountain of three billion items of junk mail.

Critics point out that cash-strapped councils make thousands of pounds a year by selling on voters’ details for as little as 15p a go.

 

Red Cross wins aid convoy battle

Russia’s East Ukraine humanitarian aid convoy had to crash the border to get the badly needed supplies into Lugansk today.

The security concerns for the Red Cross were the last hold up, and as expected, Kiev shelled the area overnight knowing that the Red Cross could not move under those conditions. Putin decided that the fooling around time was over and made the call to go in. God bless the man… the statesman once again.

I had been delaying writing this column for a few hours while awaiting the results of the closed-door UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine’s claims of having been invaded by a humanitarian aid convoy. I had prepared material about the “little green men” hiding in the flour bags, and the special midget Spetsnaz units that Putin had been saving as a secret weapon.

The main headquarters of the DPR army has made a decision to stop operations in small groups and form full-bodied independent military units, the anti-Kiev forces say in a summary of their operations filed on Sunday.

They also say they are blocking a large “punitive force” near Alekseevskoe, Blagodatnoe, Voykovsky, Kuteinikovo, Ulyanovskoe and Uspenka.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Success lies in perseverance; ceaseless, restless, perseverance!” — Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, aka The Red Baron

Faked James Foley beheading to demonize Islam

Knowing the past history of western governments, media and Hollywood propaganda ploys to demonize Muslims and Islam, I had doubts about the recent beheading of American journalist James Foley 40 was also a photo-studio trick to fool the public. My suspicion became more and more solid as I read the FBI, CNN, BBC, FoxNews, International Business Times, Global Post, New Yorker, National Israel Times, and the rest of Jewish propaganda empire tried to prove that the video showing the beheading of James Foley was genuine.

The beheading might be genuine, but even if it is, that does not tell us who was really responsible, only who we are supposed to think did it.

By way of deception and all that!

The hypocrisy is stunning. Bombing from the air, waterboarding (and worse) are all “clean” and as American as apple pie, but beheading is barbaric and we should all get riled up about it!

 

Could James Foley have been murdered by ISIS a YEAR ago? New claims from Assad regime over footage of beheading

Murdered American journalist James Foley was killed a year ago after first being sold by the US-backed Free Syrian Army to his killers, it was claimed today.

Bouthaina Shabaan, President Bashar al-Assad’s official spokesman, said that the Islamic State was an ‘extension’ of the Free Syrian Army, the rebel group which led the uprising against the [Syrian government] three years ago.

She said the United Nations had ‘information’ that the photojournalist was beheaded last year.

She added: ‘Isis [now Islamic State] is only an extension of what was happening right from the first day in Syria.

BREAKING: Suspect Identified in James Foley Beheading Is Failed Rapper

British intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6 have identified the man suspected of the horrific beheading of American journalist James Foley, according to British media reports.

The hooded man with an English accent is believed to be 23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, known to fellow Islamic State militants as Jihadi John.

 

ISIS: Made in Washington, Riyadh – and Tel Aviv

There’s more than one Dr. Frankenstein responsible for this monster
by Justin Raimondo,
The Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) is being touted as the newest “threat” to the American

homeland: hysterics have pointed to Chicago as the locus of their interest, and we are told by everyone from the President on down that if we don’t attack them – i.e. go back into Iraq (and even venture into Syria) to root them out – they’ll soon show up on American shores.
How is this supposed to work? Well, you see, that monster who beheaded James Foley had a British accent, and there are reports of more than a few Brits (and Americans) traveling to Syria to fight on behalf of ISIS. So these jihadi “internationalists” could always just fly back to either Britain or the US, where another 9/11 would shortly be in the works.

 

Gazans in the United States Suffer the Horrors of War From Abroad

As the media headlines swing from the growing death count in the Gaza Strip to fitful truce negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel, a growing number of Americans are becoming aware of the eight-year-old blockade that has prevented the 1.8 million people of Gaza from living a normal life. However, it still seems like a distant battle; most Americans don’t realize that the conflict is fueled by billions of dollars of US military “aid,” or that there are Palestinians from Gaza living among them, fearing for their loved ones’ lives from afar.

 

Palestinian-American teen denied access to Israel’s airport (to go back to the USA)

Dina Shehadeh, 17, was about to begin her senior year of high school in Ohio where she was born and raised. But two weeks ago, after spending the summer with her extended family in the West Bank, she was separated from her mother and detained inside of Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv. Israeli security then told Dina that she was not allowed to leave the country—at least not through the airport.

While detained on the night of June 13, 2014 when she was scheduled to fly on El Al flight 1, Dina learned to her surprise that Israeli security no longer considered her an American citizen with American travel privileges. The Palestinian identification card her family filed for her the year before, a registry requirement for children of West Bank Palestinian ID holders, erases her rights as a U.S. citizen.

IDF Soldier of the Prisoners Pictures Scandal Hit by Hamas

In the pictures, she posed next to Palestinian detainees.

“We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel’s abuse of our history in these pages to justify the unjustifiable: Israel’s wholesale effort to destroy Gaza and the murder of more than 2,000 Palestinians, including many hundreds of children. Nothing can justify bombing UN shelters, homes, hospitals and universities. Nothing can justify depriving people of electricity and water,” the letter reads.

It concludes: “’Never again’ must mean NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE.”

Former Israeli AG: Our government staged the assassination of Al-Daif

In the biggest blow to Israeli propaganda, which claimed that Hamas broke the ceasefire, former Israeli Attorney General Michael Ben Yair has said that “it was Israel who staged the alleged Hamas breach of the ceasefire in order to create the conditions for assassinating Muhammad Al-Daif, Commander-in-Chief of Hamas’s military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades.

The website of Makor Rishon newspaper said that Ben Yair, who also worked as a judge in the Israeli supreme court, tweeted on his twitter account the following: “There is no agreement and hostilities have been renewed, but who is the culprit? Hamas who wants an agreement with accomplishments or Israel who staged the breach of the ceasefire in order to justify the assassination of Muhammad Al-Daif?”

 

THE HATRED WE CALL OUR OWN

“For me, personally, Arabs are something I can’t look at and can’t stand,” a 10th-grade girl from a high school in the central part of the country says in abominable Hebrew. “I am tremendously racist. I come from a racist home. If I get the chance in the army to shoot one of them, I won’t think twice. I’m ready to kill someone with my hands, and it’s an Arab. In my education I learned that … their education is to be terrorists, and there is no belief in them. I live in an area of Arabs, and every day I see these Ishmaelites, who pass by the [bus] station and whistle. I wish them death.”

The Pentagon’s Strategy for World Domination: Full Spectrum Dominance, from Asia to Africa

Just as we have seen the balkanization of Yugoslavia, Libya, and Iraq by US-NATO it appears that the same strategy has been developed for Russia. With NATO’s continuing military encirclement of Russia the plan appears to be to draw Moscow into a military quagmire in Ukraine that will weaken that nation. The Rand Corporation has studies that call for the break-up of Russia into many smaller pieces thus giving western corporations better access to the vast resource base available there.

The recent announcement by BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) that they have created a $100 billion international development bank to rival the IMF and World Bank has angered western corporate controlled governments who don’t want any challenge to their management of the global economy. Directly after the BRICS announcement we witnessed an escalation of the US-NATO funded and directed civil war in Ukraine.

Egypt army troops kill 14 militants in restive Sinai

A military official says Egyptian armed forces have killed 17 militants during separate operations in the violence-plagued Sinai Peninsula of the North African country.

Army spokesman Brigadier General Mohamed Samir stated on Monday that the militants were killed in multiple exchanges of fire with Egyptian soldiers in North Sinai on Sunday. . .

. . . Since the ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi on July 3 last year, gunmen have launched almost daily attacks on the peninsula, killing members of security forces.

Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically-elected president, was toppled in a military coup led by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Egypt’s current president and the then army commander.

Following Morsi’s ouster, Sisi announced his candidacy for the nation’s presidency and was sworn in as president after winning an election in which less than 50 percent of eligible voters participated.

 

Israeli drone captured in Gaza: Hamas

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, has seized an Israeli reconnaissance drone in Gaza Strip’s Shejaiya district.

According to media reports, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades announced the capture of the “Zionist reconnaissance plane” via a message posted on its Arabic Twitter account on Monday.

 

Israel’s Genocidal Killing Machine

War without mercy is official Israeli policy. Rule of law principles don’t matter.

Throughout its entire history, Israel waged genocidal war on Palestine.

Its 1947-48 War of Independence prioritized an exclusive Jewish state with no Arab presence.

Strategy was by any means possible. It included mass murder, destruction and forced displacement.

According to historian Ilan Pappe, Israeli policy involved “large-scale intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centres; setting fire to homes, properties and goods; expulsion; demolition; and finally, planting mines among the rubble to prevent any of the expelled inhabitants from returning.”

Israel’s dirty war took six months to complete. It was a walkover. It forcibly displaced about 800,000 Palestinians. It murdered many others.

It destroyed 531 villages and 11 urban neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and other cities.

Israeli Bombing Intensifies in Gaza as Does Push for ICC ‘War Crimes’ Inquiry

The push to engage the International Criminal Court in an investigation into possible war crimes by Israel for it military attacks on the civilian population of the Gaza Strip is gaining steam among Palestinian political factions as well as members of the international legal community.

 

James Foley beheading used to further war agenda

Despite being exposed as a probable fake, the James Foley beheading video is still being used as a poster child to reinvigorate support behind a military attack on Syria, almost exactly a year after a dubious chemical weapons attack was exploited for the same purpose.

As we reported earlier, top forensic experts have concluded that the alleged beheading was likely “staged” and that the footage in the clip does not show the execution of Foley.

 

Libyan capital under Islamist control after Tripoli airport seized

Libya has lurched ever closer to fragmentation and civil war this weekend after Islamist-led militias seized the airport in the capital, Tripoli, proclaimed their own government, and presented the world with yet another crisis.

Although the corporate media can be counted on to fling around words like “Islamist” and “militant”, what is really going on in Libya today is a repeat of Iran in 1979. The Libyan people are tired of their US puppet rulers and kicking them out, as is also happening right now in Iraq. The crisis is that all these invasions by the US over the last decade are actually about forcing the world to trade resources such as oil and metals only for the US dollar, from which the US gets a mafia-like “piece of the action” to prop up its collapsing economy. Such a deal is an all or nothing arrangement. No nation can be left to trade resources in currencies other than the dollar as other nations will buy from them as prices will be lower without the added percentage going to the US (either in products and produce given to the US for dollars or interest on dollars borrowed from the federal reserve). This is why the US is having to go back into Iraq for a third time, and will now have to go back into Libya. And why ultimately the US will start wars with Russia and China to remove the competition of the more attractive Ruble and Yuan. This is why young people are being killed and crippled across the globe right now; to prop up that paper dollar.

ISIS Exposed 100% as CIA OP: “The Next Bin Laden is Here” – Don’t Be Fooled

Drudge, UK MSM: Beheading May Have Been Staged!

Quasi-Governmental Psyops deployed to Steal our Future

Ever wonder how American Defense Policy is made which keeps leading America into illegal, Unconstitutional, unprovoked, undeclared perpetual Wars?

In this article you will be informed how Quasi-Governmental Top Policy-Makers use sophisticated Psyops to Mind-Kontrol and deceive Americans into supporting these crimes against humanity which they would never otherwise support.

It’s high time Americans learn how sophisticated quasi-governmental Think-Tanks and Defense Policy Boards (TTs/DPBs) steal their future by creating sophisticated Psyops and disseminating them through the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM).

It is important to realize that the 9/11/01 nuclear attack on America was imagined, created, woven into a major Psyop against the American Masses in secret, closed meetings in one of these TTs/DPBs and this Psyop was designed to create a huge lie designed to sucker America into another illegal Mideast war.

We must admit the truth: Palestinian children in Israel are considered like insects

London hip-hop artist Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary key suspect in hunt for killer of American journalist James Foley

THE beheading of American journalist, James Foley, at the hands of ISIS militants shocked the world but forensic experts have revealed the video was probably staged, with the murder happening off camera.

The UK Times reported that an international forensic science company, which has worked for police forces across Britain, said there is no question Foley was beheaded but that camera trickery and post-production techniques look to have been used.

“I think it has been staged,” said one expert in visual forensics, after he was commissioned by The UK Times to examine the footage.

‘Islamic State’ head-choppers: The best enemy money can buy

The so-called Islamic State is not what it claims to be. Like the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor has any reserves, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state. It is a terrorist group that was created by US intelligence and Zionist-allied mercenaries, trained at CIA bases in Jordan, and unleashed on the people of Syria and Iraq to destabilize those countries in service to Israel.

The realist faction of the US ruling elite, represented by President Obama and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is genuinely alarmed by the rise of Islamic State. These realists believe the Middle East has already been sufficiently destabilized, so now it is time to move on to the real struggle against Russia, China, and the rising BRICS nations. They are concerned that Islamic State is becoming a Frankenstein’s monster that could wreak blowback on its creators.

But the ultra-Zionist faction, represented by AIPAC, JINSA, FDD (formerly PNAC) and the neoconservative dual citizens who dominate the Republican Party, loves Islamic State. For them, Islamic State is the best enemy that American taxpayers’ money can buy. It is the perfect vehicle for demonizing Islam and sealing the US-Israel relationship in American blood.

 

Foley murder video ‘may have been staged’

But a study of the four-minute 40-second clip, carried out by an international forensic science company which has worked for police forces across Britain, suggested camera trickery and slick post-production techniques appear to have been used.

A forensic analyst told The Times that no blood can be seen, even though the knife is drawn across the neck area at least six times.

“After enhancements, the knife can be seen to be drawn across the upper neck at least six times, with no blood evidence to the point the picture fades to black,” the analysis said.

Sounds allegedly made by Foley do not appear consistent with what may be expected.

During Foley’s speech, there appears to be a blip which could indicate the journalist had to repeat a line.

 

Supporting ‘terror tourism’ to Israel gets Canadian tax credits

Two weeks ago Somali-Canadian Mohamed Hersi was sentenced to 10 years in prison for attempting to join al-Shabab. Arrested at Toronto’s Pearson airport before leaving, Hersi was not found guilty of committing or plotting a specific act of violence, but according to the presiding judge, was “poised to become a terror tourist”.

Yet our government does nothing to hundreds of other Canadians who join a foreign military force to daily terrorize millions of people and often use explosives to kill thousands, most of whom are civilians.

 

Israeli airstrikes kill 16 in Gaza, Palestinian officials say

The recently renewed violence in the Mideast claimed more lives Sunday as Israeli strikes killed at least 16 people in Gaza and a Hamas attack on a border crossing wounded four Israeli civilians.

The 16 Palestinian victims included a mother and her three children in their home, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra.

One of the targets was Mohamed Al-Oul, who supervised Hamas’ financial transactions, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The IDF said a “hit was confirmed.”

 

Five rockets fired from Syria hit Israel

Five rockets fired from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights overnight between Saturday and Sunday, the Israeli military said in a statement.

Israel’s Ynet website news said that three rockets exploded in a settlement in the northern Golan Heights and two have hit an open space. No injuries or damages were immediately reported.

The rocket salvo was fired only a few hours after a rocket fired from southern Lebanon hit the Upper Galilee in northern Israel. A spokesperson with the police said that the rocket hit an empty building in an open area, with two children lightly wounded.

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for both incidents.

 

US considers broad military action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria – report

As the US has acknowledged that the Islamic State group is a greater threat than Al-Qaeda, the White House is reportedly seeking domestic legal justification at home to use unlimited military force against the Sunni extremists in Iraq and Syria.

 

ISIS Threatens America: ‘We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House’

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland

This reeks of stolen incubators and Saddam’s nuclear weapons.

At present there is only this one image found by Google of the threat made to fly the flag of Allah over the White House.

It is rather small, just 150×150 and I started wondering why this was the largest image of what is being promoted as the new Adam Gadahn. So I found the original video and grabbed a screencap from that.

Take a close look at the top of the beard and how sharp it is. It looks fake to me. This person’s cap is slightly too small and looks brand new. His shirt is clean and pressed, also looking new. The vest he is wearing is not body armor but simply a belt of pouches sand serves no other purpose than to make him look “military” for the cameras.

This is yet another fake to sell us yet another war in Iraq, no different than the stolen incubator hoax that tricked us into the first Iraq war or the lies about Saddam’s nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second. And frankly I do not think it will get much traction because for a lot of Americans ANY new flag flying over the White House looks like an improvement! :)

UPDATE: The US media is now replaying the Boco Haram, gambit, claiming that ISIS is kidnapping helpless women to commit horrible acts upon their bodies, like forcing them to watch reruns of The Hollywood Squares. The video being shown is very shaky, blurry, and overly compressed; dead giveaways that they don’t want anyone to be able to take a close look for inconsistent details.

UPDATE: As it turns out, our caution with the story about ISIS saying they will raise the flag over the White House was well-founded. VICE media, the source of this story, has a long history of lies and deceptions!

UPDATE: I am bumping this to the top because there is a very heavy-handed online campaign to promote VICE News as the new go-to news source on the internet.

 

Israel Threatens Expanded Airstrikes, Gaza Ground Operation

Targets today included a house, two men in a car and another on a motorbike, according to the pro-Hamas Al-Rai news agency. At least 15 Palestinians were killed, bringing the death toll from seven weeks of hostilities to more than 2,100, according to Gaza Health Ministry official Ashraf al-Qedra. Sixty-eight on the Israeli side, all but four of them soldiers, have also died since Israel embarked on its offensive with the declared aim of squelching rocket fire.

Cowards in the Pulpit Finally Tell on Themselves

If you are wondering why there are not more pastors and preachers in America like the Black Robed Regiment, then you need look no further to a two-year study conducted by George Barna. Barna gave the results of the study earlier this month and revealed that while a majority of them claim they believe the Bible provides specific answers to the issues America faces, they will not speak out on those issues from the pulpit.
