Britain Should Be in the Dock Over Skripal Saga, Not Russiahttps://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/07/britain-should-be-in-the-dock-over-skripal-saga-not-russia.html – “Then on Thursday Britain summoned the United Nations Security Council to hash over the lurid claims against Russia without providing any further substantiating details to back up the sensational accusations… As Vasily Nebenzia, Russia’s envoy to the UN, remarked, the whole aim of the British claims is to whip up more international anti-Russia frenzy and hysteria. No sooner had Britain unleashed its latest allegations, a joint statement was released by the United States, Canada, Germany and France supporting the British claims.”

China Is Detaining Muslims in Vast Numbers. The Goal: ‘Transformation.’ – by Chris Buckley – “https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/08/world/asia/china-uighur-muslim-detention-camp.html – “Inside, hundreds of ethnic Uighur Muslims spend their days in a high-pressure indoctrination program, where they are forced to listen to lectures, sing hymns praising the Chinese Communist Party and write “self-criticism” essays, according to detainees who have been released… The goal is to remove any devotion to Islam… Abdusalam Muhemet, 41, said the police detained him for reciting a verse of the Quran at a funeral. After two months in a nearby camp, he and more than 30 others were ordered to renounce their past lives. Mr. Muhemet said he went along but quietly seethed… ‘That was not a place for getting rid of extremism,” he recalled. “That was a place that will breed vengeful feelings and erase Uighur identity.’ ”

US Officially Admits It’s Not Going To Withdraw Forces From Syriahttps://southfront.org/us-officially-admits-its-not-going-to-withdraw-forces-from-syria/ – “According to James Jeffrey, President Donald Trump supports the strategy that envisions an indefinite military and diplomatic presence in Syria, contrary to the President’s previous inclination to withdraw US troops after defeating ISIS… ‘The new policy is we’re no longer pulling out by the end of the year,’ he told reporters in Washington. Initially the 2,200 US troops deployed to eastern Syria in support of the multi-national coalition against ISIS was supposed to leave. Instead, they will remain in support of a combined military and diplomatic effort to limit Iranian and Russian influence over post-war reconstruction. ‘That means we are not in a hurry,’ Jeffrey said, adding that he was “confident” Trump supports what he called a “more active approach” in Syria.”

US Ambassador To UN Goes Wild, Claims Russia, Syria, Iran Seek To Kill Civilians, Destroy Schools And Hospitals In Idlibhttps://southfront.org/us-ambassador-to-un-goes-wild-claims-russia-syria-iran-seek-to-kill-civilians-destroy-schools-and-hospitals-in-idlib/ – “In her statement during the UN Security Council briefing, Haley said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and its “enablers,” Russia and Iran have a playbook for the war in Syria. First, they surround a civilian area. Next, they make the ‘preposterous claim that everyone in the area is a terrorist,’ thus making all civilians targets. That is followed by a “starve and surrender” campaign, during which Syrian security forces keep attacking until the people no longer have food, clean water, or shelter. ‘It’s a playbook of death. The Assad regime has spent the last seven years refining it with Russia and Iran’s help.’.. ‘But when Russia and the Assad regime say they want to counter terrorism, they actually mean they want to bomb schools, hospitals, and homes. They want to punish the civilians who had the courage to rise up against Assad. When the regime calls the brave White Helmets terrorists, we know they are not serious about fighting terrorism. The United States will not cooperate with Russia on the Assad regime’s slaughter of innocent civilians,’ she claimed.”

18 Killed In Clashes Between Syrian Democratic Forces And Syrian Intelligence In Qamishli Cityhttps://southfront.org/18-killed-in-clashes-between-syrian-democratic-forces-and-syrian-intelligence-in-qamishli-city-videos/ – “Kurdish sources claimed that the Syrian Millitary Intelligence unit had entered the SDF-held part of the city without permission, which provoked the clashes. However, Syrian pro-government sources said that the attack on the unit was pre-planned and released a video showing personnel of the SDF’s security forces encircling the unit before the clashes.”

The Truths That Won’t be Told: How Israel Spies on US Citizens – by Alain Gresh – https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/09/03/the-truths-that-wont-be-told-how-israel-spies-on-us-citizens/ – “Everything seems to be going well for Israel, but its American supporters, despite their extensive resources, are nervous. The future seems dark to them, and even those most likely to support them are wavering. The documentary shows Vaknin-Gil admitting in a Knesset hearing: ‘Today we [have] lost the second generation of Jews, which are the millennial generation of Jews. I hear this from their parents, who come and explain to me what a hard time they’re having with their kids at Friday dinners. They don’t recognise the state of Israel and don’t see us as an entity to be admired.’ ”

Outrageous: Bioethicist says parents may have ‘right’ to kill born children – by Cassy Fiano-Chesser – https://www.liveaction.org/news/bioethicist-parents-kill-born-children/ – ” ‘[T]here might be an argument that gives, for example, the genetic parents a right to kill (or leave to die) their newborn infant even if the infant has a right to life. For example, it might be argued that people have a right to their genetic privacy and having the newborn infant in the world that carries the genetic material of the genetic parents violates their right to genetic privacy. Put another way: the fetus does not have a right to the genetic material of her parents.’ – Finnish bioethicist Joona Räsänen… Princeton bioethicist Peter Singer has likewise argued in favor of infanticide, especially for babies with disabilities. When asked if he would kill a baby with a disability, Singer answered, ‘Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole.’ ”

Brett Kavanaugh was Deep State’s Point Man for Vince Foster Murder Cover-up – by Hugh Turley – http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=100939 – “On March 10, 1995, four days after Rodriguez’s resignation was effective, an FBI agent sent a memorandum to Kavanaugh that was copied to Tuohey. The memo presented a chronology: ‘(16:15-16:30) Patrick Knowlton describes a small brown foreign car with Arkansas license plates in the Ft. Marcy parking lot. Knowlton also described a suit jacket and a briefcase inside this car.’.. The memo failed to mention that Knowlton was unwavering that the car he saw was not Foster’s 1989 gray Honda.    The Arkansas license plate seen by Knowlton was used to make it appear that he saw Foster’s car. Although it stated that Knowlton saw a brown car, it suppressed the fact that Knowlton was certain the car was an early 80s model and not a 1989. The chronology continued: ‘(17:00 +/-) Judy Doody identifies Foster’s vehicle parked in the Ft. Marcy parking lot.’ This false statement was used to make it appear Foster’s car was in the parking lot when Foster was dead.”

I Know Who the “Senior Official” Is Who Wrote the NY Times Op-Ed – by Paul Craig Roberts – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50203.htm – “The op-ed is an obvious forgery. As a former senior official in a presidential administration, I can state with certainty that no senior official would express disagreement anonymously. Anonymous dissent has no credibility. Moreover, the dishonor of it undermines the character of the writer. A real dissenter would use his reputation and the status of his high position to lend weight to his dissent… The New York Times’ claim to have vetted the writer also lacks credibility, as the New York Times has consistently printed extreme accusations against Trump and against Vladimir Putin without supplying a bit of evidence.”

New details surface about terrorists’ preparations to stage chemical attack in Idleb and Hama – by Hazem Sabbagh – https://sana.sy/en/?p=146450 – “The sources say that militants from the “Turkistani Party” and “Hai’et Tahrir al-Cham” held on Thursday a meeting with members of the White Helmets in Jisr al-Shughour city west of Idleb, during which the roles were assigned for staging a chemical attack with the help of Western intelligence agencies… The sources say that the White Helmets have picked three new locations for carrying out the attacks after information was leaked about the previously-planned locations, and the three locations are: al-Najia town in Jisr al-Shughour countryside, al-Hamawsh town in the northwestern countryside of Hama, and Kafr Nubbul town in Idleb countryside.”

Britain, Allies Urge Moscow To Accept ‘Compelling Evidence’ In Novichok Attackhttps://www.rferl.org/a/world-leaders-back-u-k-s-novichok-claims/29475751.html – “Prior to the council session, the leaders of Britain, the United States, France, Germany, and Canada said they backed British law enforcement’s conclusion that the poisoning was “almost certainly approved at a senior government level” in Russia… In a joint statement, they also said they have “full confidence” in the British assessment that the two suspects were GRU officers, and urged Russia to provide full disclosure of its Novichok program.. The statement was signed by British Prime Minister Theresa May, U.S. President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau… The allegations against Moscow reiterated what many in the West previously have said about the nerve agent attack against the Skripals — namely, that the act was approved at high levels of the Russian government.” – Comment: “Official sources” purportedly in the UK government have stated that the government now considers that it is at war with Russia over this matter.

911 17th Anniversary: 17 Unanswered Questions – by Makia Freeman – http://freedom-articles.toolsforfreedom.com/911-17th-anniversary-questions/

From the Time-To-Smell-The-Coffee Desk: The Secret Lie That Started the Afghan War – by James Corbett (26 min) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Moz8hs2lJik – “Dr. Rice has stated that she asked the National Security Council staff in her first week in office for a new presidential initiative on al Qaeda. In early March, the staff was directed to craft a more aggressive strategy aimed at eliminating the al Qaeda threat. The first draft of that approach, in the form of a presidential directive, was circulated by the NSC staff in June of 2001, and a number of meetings were held that summer at the deputy secretary level to address the policy questions involved, such as relating an aggressive strategy against Taliban to U.S.-Pakistan relations… By the first week of September, the process had arrived at a strategy that was presented to principals and later became NSPD-9, the President’s first major substantive national security decision directive. It was presented for a decision by principals on September 4th, 2001, seven days before the 11th, and later signed by the President, with minor changes and a preamble to reflect the events of September 11th, in October.” (emphases added)RUMSFELD 9/11 COMMISSION TESTIMONY MARCH 23, 2004 – Comment: The decision (taken by the North Atlantic Council on Oct. 2, 2001) to invoke Article 5 of the Washington (NATO) Treaty, was based exclusively on the Bush planning documents, and incorporated their language, and did not include a shred of evidence that any outside force(s) were involved in the 9/11 “attacks.” The Article 5 decision (the first time this was invoked) forced mandatory cooperation with the U.S. wars in the wake of 9/11 onto the nations bound by the Washington Treaty – All based on no evidence. Incidentally, both British and U.S. forces were already in transit to Afghanistan before 9/11/2001.

Man Caught Paying Off Kavanaugh Protesters Works For Soros-Funded Organization – Bombshell proof of foreign meddling in American politics – by Paul Joseph Watson – https://www.infowars.com/man-caught-paying-off-kavanaugh-protesters-works-for-soros-funded-organization/ – ” ‘The man handing money to the Kavanaugh hearing protester is Vinay Krishnan. Consultant/organizer at Center for Popular Democracy.’.. Krishnan’s bio lists him as a “social justice attorney”. The Center for Popular Democracy ‘receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros’ and back in May last year announced that they were setting up an ‘$80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners.’ ”

EU Enters “Final Stage” Of Crafting Bill Forcing Big Tech Censorship – by Joe Jankowski – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/eu-enters-final-stage-of-crafting-bill-forcing-big-tech-censorship.html – “The bill is expected to be released by the end of the month and will absolutely require companies such as  Google, Facebook, and Twitter to swiftly remove any content considered terroristic from their platforms… In March, the European Commission told such companies that they had three months to show they were removing “extremist” content more rapidly or face legislation forcing them to do so… EU recommendations were sent out at the time regarding the speedy removal of all content including terrorist content, incitement to hatred and violence, child sexual abuse material, counterfeit products, and copyright infringement… The threat eventually led to the creation of an online “code of conduct” aimed at fighting racism and xenophobia across Europe, an effort both the EU and big tech collaborated on.”

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Leaders Are Selling Their Property In Idlib Ahead Of Syrian Army AttackReport – https://southfront.org/hayat-tahrir-al-sham-leaders-are-selling-their-property-in-idlib-ahead-of-syrian-army-attack-report/ – ” ‘Leaders and princes of Hay’at [HTS] began selling their property – restaurants, farms and commercial markets – fearing any battle or an unexpected scenario that may lead to the expulsion of Hay’at from Idlib… The most prominent leaders of Hay’at offered their property for sale secretly.

From the Lies-And-The-Lying-Liars Desk: Mattis: Syrian Rebels Have No Chemical Weaponshttps://www.voanews.com/a/mattis-syrian-rebels-have-no-chemical-weapons/4558451.html – ” ‘We have zero intelligence that shows the [Syrian] opposition has any chemical capability,’ Mattis said. On the other hand, Mattis said there is evidence that President Bashar al-Assad has ‘done this before and we are watching very closely for this.’.. U.S. officials have warned of a potential humanitarian catastrophe as the Syrian government moves in on the last remaining stronghold of Syrian rebels in the northwestern province of Idlib. An estimated three million people live in the area… The Trump administration has twice launched airstrikes against Syria’s government in response to the chemical weapons attacks… ‘Let us be clear, it remains our firm stance that if President Bashar al-Assad chooses to again use chemical weapons, the United States and its Allies will respond swiftly and appropriately,’ said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.”

What Should Putin Do? – by Paul Craig Roberts – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50189.htm – “The Saker intends to answer my question. We will see where he takes this issue. I will say that this discussion has risks for each of us, because those we are attempting to alert, warn, and to bring out of their insouciance will characterize us as “Russian agents” and “Putin stooges” for doubting US primacy. We will be accused of trying to protect Russia with a peace campaign… What I think tells most against Martyanov’s optimism is that it is he, The Saker, Stephen Cohen, Pat Buchanan, and myself who are marginalized, not the crazies who are responsible for the dangerous and irresponsible provocations of the world’s most capable and best armed nuclear power—Russia. The crazies are in control of the US National Security Council, office of Homeland Security, office of National Intelligence, CIA, US Department of State, Pentagon, the US media, and the US Democratic Party. Republican Senator John McCain is being made into a hero for his hatred of Russia and support for war.” (emphasis added)

IDF confirms: Israel provided light-weapons to Syrian rebels – Bashar Assad claimed that Israel had been providing arms to terror groups and its forces had regularly seized arms and munitions with inscriptions in Hebrew – by Anna Ahronheim – https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:5JDOiVV-EgUJ:https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/IDF-confirms-Israel-provided-light-weapons-to-Syrian-rebels-566479+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=by – “According to reports Israel had been arming at least seven different rebel groups in Syria’s Golan Heights, including the Fursan al-Joulan rebel group which had around 400 fighters and had been given an estimated $5,000 per month by Israel… Through Operation Good Neighbor, which was launched in 2016 the Israeli military had provided over 1524 tons of food, 250 tons of clothes, 947,520 liters of fuel, 21 generators, 24,900 palettes of medical equipment and medicine.” – Note: This article is only found on the Google web archive now – It was scrubbed by the Jerusalem Post within hours of its publication.

How To Own Life Like A Fucking Wizard – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/09/04/how-to-own-life-like-a-fucking-wizard/ – “Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. We’re a bunch of hairless apes on a spinning rock in space, and we only know the stories that we’ve been told by the people who got here before us. We come out as clueless little babies, then when we get bigger we learn some fancy words and how to open a bag of chips, but underneath all the data we add on top of our fresh baby minds there’s still the same cluelessness we started out with. The process of sorting out the true and useful data from the false and unhelpful is confusing, difficult, and prone to error. So people tend to just listen to the most confident-sounding voice in the room; the one who steps forward and says ‘I know what’s going on, follow me.’ ”

Anti-Vaccine Japan Has World’s Lowest Child Death Rate & Highest Life Expectancy – by Amanda-Mary – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/japan-has-the-lowest-infant-mortality-rate-following-ban-on-mandatory-vaccinations/ – “Japan’s anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public “promotes health.”.. However, Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan… It’s clear to see that Western nations have a lot to learn from the Japanese when it comes to their approach to vaccinations and issues facing public health… The Japanese are vaccine sceptics, to put it simply, and due to adverse reactions suffered by Japanese children, have banned many vaccines.”

Working Teens Dragged Back to School By Bounty Hunters – by Joe Jarvis – https://www.thedailybell.com/all-articles/news-analysis/working-teens-dragged-back-to-school-by-bounty-hunters/ – “That’s it, let’s drag these “kids” away from work and back to school. Forget making money and building experience in the real world. Let’s keep the real world on hold so they can get a public education… Especially ironic is that this particular school is called a “Career Center.” Nothing says career training like snatching a teen from work.”

Whistleblower Exposes Key Player in FBI Russia Probe: “It was all a Set-up” – by Sara Carter – https://saraacarter.com/whistleblower-exposes-key-player-in-fbi-russia-probe-it-was-all-a-set-up/ – “Adam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst, never expected that what he stumbled on during his final months at the Pentagon would expose an integral player in the FBI’s handling of President Donald Trump’s campaign and alleged Russia collusion… Lovinger, a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports… ..he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped of his prestigious White House detail, and ordered to perform bureaucratic make-work in a Pentagon annex Bigley calls “the land of misfit toys.” His security clearance was eventually revoked in March 2018, despite the Pentagon ‘refusing to turn over a single page of its purported evidence of Lovinger’s wrongdoing…’ ”

WATCH: Northwest Hama Residents Welcome Syrian Army Headed to Idlib (w/video 2 min) – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/09/02/watch-northwest-hama-residents-welcome-syrian-army-headed-to-idlib/ – “Al Masdar News reports… DAMASCUS, SYRIA – A convoy for the Syrian Army heading to the outskirts of Idlib for upcoming offensive was warmly welcomed by residents of al-Ghab Plain in northwest Hama countryside… The convoy belongs to the SAA’s elite 4th Armored Division which was tasked with fighting jihadi groups near al-Ghab Plain once the full-scale offensive begins.”

UK: Syrian Terrorists Can’t Possibly Be Planning Chemical Weapons False Flag, Because Russia Said They Are – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/uk-syrian-terrorists-cant-possibly-be-planning-chemical-weapons-false-flag-because-russia-said-7d749d76ea00 – “So let’s recap: it is the British government’s official public position that the extremist jihadist factions who have been holing up in their final stronghold preparing for the long-awaited military confrontation in Idlib would have no incentive whatsoever to stage a false flag chemical attack in order to rally western reinforcements against the Syrian government and thereby escape defeat. Far more likely, in the British government’s estimation, is that the warnings of such an attack are a “smoke screen” to cover for the Syrian government’s plan to perpetrate its own chemical attack in order to accomplish the key strategic goal of suffocating a few dozen children. Oh yeah, and terrorists should be given safe passage to areas where they can safely regroup, because that’s the thing that you do with terrorists now.”
