For the week of 12/28/15:

Homeless-Penn_Station_NYCStates of emergency in major US cities over homeless crisis – from PressTV.ir – “The cities of Portland, Oregon; Denver, Colorado; and Seattle, Washington as well as the entire state of Hawaii have become the latest to take drastic measures to fight the crisis… ‘We know that we have many individuals and families in Hawaii that are homeless, not only during the holiday season but year ’round,’ said Scott Morishige, the Hawaii governor’s coordinator on homelessness. ‘We’re committed to being able to respond to that need.’.. Los Angeles has yet to declare its own state of emergency, but campaigners describe its current condition as “the worst man-made disaster in the US.”.. The largest increase in homelessness was in Washington, DC, the nation’s capital, where the number of people experiencing homelessness rose by 28 percent and the number of homeless families went up by 60 percent.”

John_CarlinObama’s Four-Point Gun Confiscation Plan – by Dave Hodges, TheDailySheeple.com – “Then there is the X-factor: Does anyone else wonder why this administration is so determined to end the private ownership of guns when it has been clearly established that those areas who have the most stringent gun control (e.g. New York, Chicago, and Washington DC) also have the highest gun violence and homicide rates?.. What will this administration do once they have all of our guns? What are trying to accomplish?.. Washington (CNN) ‘Domestic terror groups pose a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda,’ a Justice Department official (i.e John Carlin) said Wednesday… To help combat them, the department has created a new counsel that will coordinate the investigation andprosecution of anti-government and hate groups”. (Editor’s note: It is legal to be anti-government in one’s speech and this attitude does not imply the subsequent use of violence)… Please take note of the use of the strategy often referred to as incrementalism. Carlin vilifies groups that most Americans do not approve of (e.g. the KKK, overt practices of racism, acts of violence etc.). However, Carlin slips into his rhetoric that anyone that characterizes any person harboring any expressed anti-government views, as a domestic terrorist. This is a thinly veiled attempt to end all criticism of the government and government officials.” (emph. added)

Loretta_Lynch2International Program to “end Domestic Terrorism”Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch Announces the Launch of the Strong Cities Network at the United Nations General Assembly – from Justice.gov – September 29, 2015 – Remarks as prepared for delivery – “It is clear that the challenge of building resilience against violent extremism – a challenge that spans vast oceans and borders while impacting our most tightly-knit cities and towns – requires a response that is both wide-ranging and highly focused. National governments have a crucial role to play in ensuring the safety and security of the nations they serve – and here in the United States, it is our highest priority…By connecting municipal leaders, facilitating information-sharing and providing training and other assistance where appropriate, the Strong Cities Network will help to fashion a global response to a global issue, without losing sight of its inherently local roots. It will offer city leaders a way to learn from one another about successful initiatives and productive programs… At this time, I would like to turn things over to Sasha Havlicek, the Chief Executive Officer of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.” (emph. added – see below)

Sasha_HavlicekThe Institute for Strategic Dialogue – History – from StrategicDialogue.org – ” The Club of Three, established in the mid-1990s at the initiative of Lord Weidenfeld, brings together leading figures from business and politics… In 2006 the Club of Three embarked on a significant transition process with the establishment of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, created to serve as an umbrella-organisation that would implement the Club of Three and its various offshoots.” – from Lord Weidenfeld’s Bio: “Born in Vienna in 1919, Lord Weidenfeld left Austria for England in 1938. During World War II he worked with the BBC Overseas Service and in 1948 founded the publishing firm, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, with Nigel Nicolson. In 1949 he became Political Advisor and Chef de Cabinet in Israel to President Weizmann, and spent a year in this capacity… In 1996 he founded, together with Lord Rothschild and Lord Alexander, the Club of Three (Britain-France-Germany), which later incorporated AMEURUS (America-Europe-Russia). His Institute for Strategic Dialogue was created in 2006.” (emph. added)

Love Thy Enemy? US Plot to Evacuate Top Jihadis From Ramadi Uncovered – from SputnikNews.com – “An Iraqi volunteer forces commander has revealed US plans to evacuate Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) leaders from the central Iraqi city of Ramadi, according to the Iranian news agency FARS… The disclosure comes as the Iraqi army and popular troops are attempting to secure victory over the jihadist group in Ramadi… FARS quoted Imam Khamenei Battalion Commander Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi as saying that ‘the delay in operations to liberate the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar province has been the result of US interference.’ “

Euro_NotesJanuary 1, 2016: The New Bank Bail-In System Goes Into Effect In Europe – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “If you have a bank account anywhere in Europe, you need to read this article. On January 1st, 2016, a new bail-in system will go into effect for all European banks. This new system is based on the Cyprus bank bail-ins that we witnessed a few years ago. If you will remember, money was grabbed from anyone that had more than 100,000 euros in their bank accounts in order to bail out the banks. Now the exact same principles that were used in Cyprus are going to apply to all of Europe. And with the entire global financial system teetering on the brink of chaos, that is not good news for those that have large amounts of money stashed in shaky European banks… And as we have seen in the past, these rules can change overnight in the midst of a major crisis… So they may be promising that those with under 100,000 euros will be safe right now, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be true.”

How C. S. Lewis Predicted Today’s College Campus Craziness—in 1944 – by Tyler O’Neil, PJMedia.com – “Haidt and Lukianoff cite Harvard Law Professor Jeannie Suk, who wrote in The New Yorker about law students demanding their professors not even teach rape law — and in one weird case even to avoid using the word “violate” (as in “that violates the law”)… As Haidt and Lukianoff explain, ‘a claim that someone’s words are ‘offensive’ is not just an expression of one’s own subjective feelings of offendedness. It is, rather, a public charge that the speaker has done something objectively wrong.’.. The idea of “microaggressions” — small actions or word choices that seem to have no malicious intent but are thought of as a kind of violence nonetheless — twists the objective idea of being “offensive” into a subjective charge on behalf of someone claiming to be offended… The “vindictive protectiveness” on college campuses may trample on free speech or the pursuit of truth, but it does so in the name of conscience, which warns people not to harm others. This morality is not, strictly speaking, a new morality, but a twisted form of the original. It is not amoral or evil, but warped and mistaken.”

Dr_Carrol_Frazier_LandrumMedical Mafia threatens to take doctor’s license to punish his charitable service – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “So it makes sense that Americans who live in these poverty-stricken regions value everything they do have, and that is especially true of medical care — any medical care… Such is the case in Edwards, Miss., a small town of about 1,300 in the east-central portion of the state. There, 88-year-old Dr. Carrol Frazier Landrum will see you for medical care, even if you don’t have a penny to your name… for the past two years the good country doctor has been practicing and working without an office. He says that’s no big deal, though, because he’s happy to meet patients wherever they are. Sometimes that is in their homes, sometimes a parking lot. Others will meet Landrum on the side of a quiet country highway, or even inside his 2007 Toyota Camry… The location doesn’t matter because Landrum, a World War II veteran who has been in private practice for more than 55 years, believes it’s his duty to help anyone who calls on him.”

Sheikh_Sultan_Al_NahyanThe Mystery Of Dubai’s Vaporized Gold: The Plot Thickens – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “And if indeed this crazy story which has every possible James Bond element in it culminates with a case of scapegoating, does that immediately mean that Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa, a person at the top of the Gulf’s political and financial oligarchy, is involved. Because if he is, so is the US, as nothing happens in Abu Dhabi without the United States being aware of it. Finally, if that is the case, it means that not only did the US sanction what has been the world’s biggest gold smuggling ring, but that it implicitly gave Iran its blessing to use barterable Turkish gold in order to bypass sanctions imposed by… the United States!.. In the next installment of this action and mystery-packed series, we hope to uncover just what the role of the “developed” countries was in this massive smuggling operation, and perhaps even more importantly, where did Turkey end up buying hundreds of tons of gold which it subsequently sold to Iran and where did the Iranian gold ultimately end up?

California Laws: On January 1st, Students Won’t Have to Pass High School to Receive Diploma (also, Californians can file for an injunction against family members “who might commit gun violence” from owning a gun)by William Bigelow, Breitbart.com – “On January 1, California residents will have to accustom themselves to a number of new laws that will be implemented in the state. These are some the laws that will likely have the most profound effect…”

Pentagon Stunned As Thousands Of Chinese Troops Enter ISIS War – by Sean Adl-Tabatabai and WhatDoesItMean.com via YourNewsWire.com – ” ‘The “Siberian Tiger’ Special Forces and “Night Tiger” Special Forces Units were given authorization to be deployed by China’s People’s Congress (NPC) on Sunday, after China passed its first anti-terrorism law allowing their army to take part in anti-terror missions abroad… Most critical to China in entering this war, this report continues, is the “grave” national security threat it faces from both the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) and Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT)—and as, perhaps, best described by the noted award winning American military-intelligence journalist Seymour M. Hersh who in his latest article warned of this threat by stating: ‘China, an ally of [Syrian leader] Assad has committed more than $30 billion to postwar reconstruction in Syria. China, too, is worried about the Islamic State. China regards the Syrian crisis from three perspectives: international law and legitimacy; global strategic positioning; and the activities of jihadist Uighurs, from Xinjiang province in China’s far west.’.. Xinjiang borders eight nations – Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India – and, in China’s view, serves as a funnel for terrorism around the world and within China.”

Obama administration prepares raids on Central American immigrants – by Patrick Martin, WSWS.org – “It would be the first ever program of mass deportations to target Central American refugees specifically. Most are women and children who have sought to escape gang attacks, drug-related violence and brutality by US-backed security services in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador (Is that true? There has been documentation that U.S. connected “NGO’s” have been recruiting children in Central America for buses to the U.S.)… Raids are expected in Houston, New Orleans, Los Angeles and the Washington, DC area, which have the largest concentrations of Central American immigrants. Other cities are likely to be targeted as well… The DHS has begun adding capacity to handle increased detentions during the raids, since those arrested will be held in federal facilities in the days preceding their deportation. The agency recently opened two new “shelters”—actually detention centers—in Texas, one with 700 beds and the other with 300 beds. A third, 400-bed facility is being readied in California as well.” (emph. added)

Nimr_al-NimrSaudi Arabia executes prominent Shiite cleric and 46 others in 12 cities – b

No Crime. No Trial. No Reason: The Precedent Is Set for Gun Confiscations – by Joshua Krause, TheDailySheeple.com – “And that’s why banning gun ownership for individuals on the no fly list should frighten gun owners. It creates a situation where you don’t have to do anything criminal to lose your rights. The government could determine any benign behavior to be a sign of terrorism, and promptly take your firearms. For all practical purposes, the Second Amendment would be dead… However, it’s important to remember that the no fly list ban isn’t alone. California recently passed a law that, while appearing unrelated to the no fly list proposal, is actually operating with the same logic and intent: AB1014 was passed last year in the wake of 2014’s Isla Vista shooting, where teenager Elliot Rodger went on a rampage near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, killing six people along with himself… …Under the law, the factors a judge can consider in granting the restraining order include not only threats of violence, but also prior felony arrests (even without a conviction), evidence of alcohol abuse, and even the simple act of recently purchasing a gun or ammunition. (emph. added)

ISIS-SurrenderingRussia Vindicated by Terrorist Surrenders in Syria – by Finian Cunningham, Strategic-Culture.org – “The British state-owned broadcaster tells of hundreds of «fighters» being relocated from the town of Zabadani as if the development just magically materialized like a present donated by Santa Claus. What the BBC fails to inform is that that truce, as with several others around Damascus, has come about because of Russia’s strategic military intervention in Syria dealing crushing blows against the militant networks. The Western media have preoccupied themselves instead with claims from the US State Department that Russia’s military operations have either been propping up the «Assad regime» or allegedly targeting «moderate rebels» and civilians… The disingenuous Western narrative, or more prosaically «propaganda», then, in turn, creates a conundrum when widespread truces and evacuations are being implemented. That obviously positive development signaling an end to conflict thanks to Russia’s military intervention has to be left unexplained or unacknowledged by the Western media because it negates all their previous pejorative narrative towards Russia and the Assad government… Furthermore, the Western media are obliged to be coy about the exact identity of the «fighters» being evacuated. As noted already, the militants are variously described by the Western media in sanitized terms as «fighters» or «rebels». But more informative regional and local sources, such as Lebanon’s Al Manar, identify the brigades as belonging to the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State group and al-Nusra Front. These are terror groups, as even defined by Washington and the European Union. So, the Western media has to, by necessity, censor itself from telling the truth by peddling half-truths and sly omissions.”

Schizophrenia at the UN: “The Post 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda”, No More Poverty, No More War… – by Carla Stea, GlobalResearch.ca – “These 17 ambitious goals, if achieved, would lead to a paradise on earth. However, there is an elephant in the room that the architects of these post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals are ignoring, and which will, if left unaddressed, prevent the attainment of these goals. Under the section entitled: “Means of Implementation and the Global Partnership,” is stated: ‘5. We note the critical importance of private finance and we call on businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to engage as partners in the development process.’.. The document enumerates resources for achievement of these post 2015 Development Goals, which include, vaguely worded, ‘domestic public resources, private business, philanthropists and foundations, parliaments, local authorities and other stakeholders, etc.’.. These enumerated “resources” for implementation of these development goals are disparate and not necessarily reliable or adequate sources of financing for implementation of this new Post-2015 Development Agenda.” – And this is not to even begin to talk about the deceptive and manipulative nature of this process of “Saving the Planet.” There are even more goals now (17) to be reached than there were in 2015 (11). This is beyond a scam.

Obama-Putin-Lets_ShakeVladimir Putin Fights the War Party on All Fronts – by Pepe Escobar, TelesurTV.net – “The fight to the death in Moscow’s inner circles is really between the Eurasianists and the so-called Atlantic integrationists, a.k.a. the Western fifth column. The crux of the battle is arguably the Russian Central Bank and the Finance Ministry – where some key liberalcon monetarist players are remote-controlled by the usual suspects, the Masters of the Universe… The same mechanism applies, geopolitically, to any side, in any latitude, which has linked its own fiat money to Western central banks. The Masters of the Universe always seek to exercise hegemony by manipulating usury and fiat money control… So why President Putin does not fire the head of the Russian Central Bank, Elvira Nabiulina, and a great deal of his financial team – as they keep buying U.S. bonds and propping up the U.S. dollar instead of the ruble? What’s really being aggressed here if not Russian interests?”

Moscow extends sanctions against Turkey – from PressTV.ir – “The decree, signed on Monday, is to implement unenforced sanctions initially imposed on Turkey on November 28 together with a set of new measures to come into force as of January 1, 2016… The sanctions included a ban on the employment of Turkish citizens by Russian employers, restricted imports of certain Turkish goods such as vegetables and fruits, ban on charter flights between the two countries and also suspension of travel package sale to Turkey… According to the new presidential order, there will be a ban imposed on the operations of several organizations under the jurisdiction of Turkey as well as a limitation of Turkish organizations’ activities in Russia.”

Ellen_BrownA Crisis Worse Than ISIS? Bail-Ins Begin – by Ellen Brown, TruthOut.org – “For some inexplicable reason, the hard-earned money you deposit in the bank is not considered “security” or “collateral.” It is just a loan to the bank, and you must stand in line along with the other creditors in hopes of getting it back. State and local governments must also stand in line, although their deposits are considered “secured,” since they remain junior to the derivative claims with “super-priority.”.. Under the old liquidation rules, an insolvent bank was actually “liquidated” – its assets were sold off to repay depositors and creditors. Under an “orderly resolution,” the accounts of depositors and creditors are emptied to keep the insolvent bank in business. The point of an “orderly resolution” is not to make depositors and creditors whole but to prevent another system-wide “disorderly resolution” of the sort that followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008. The concern is that pulling a few of the dominoes from the fragile edifice that is our derivatives-laden global banking system will collapse the entire scheme. The sufferings of depositors and investors are just the sacrifices to be borne to maintain this highly lucrative edifice.”

Ukraine Cuts Power To Crimea Again, Citing Faulty Equipment – from RFERL.org (Radio Free Europe) – “Kirill Moskalenko, a spokesman for the governor of Sevastopol city, said on December 31 that Ukraine had cut off the Kakhovka-Titan line to Crimea… ‘The line has supplied the peninsula with 250 megawatts. Due to the lack of power supply, Sevastopol is receiving 150 megawatts instead of 195 megawatts,’ Moskalenko said… The Ukrainian operator of the power grid, Ukrenergo, said it shut down the Kakhovka-Titan line because some protective equipment came off in the town of Kakhovka, the TASS news agency reported… Kakhovka-Titan had been the only functioning overhead high-voltage transmission line out of four lines that Ukrenergo used to deliver electricity to customers in Crimea before the end of November… Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014 (is that true?), needs around 1 gigawatt of power to keep the lights on.”

Sacramento_Camping_Ban_ProtestersPolice In Riot Gear Arrest Homeless Protesters For Camping In Front Of City Hall – by John Vibes, ActivistPost.com – “This Friday, police invaded the encampment in riot gear and made several arrests… ‘It’s unfortunate that they wasted a lot of taxpayers’ money – riot gear, overtime,’ protest organizer James Clark said… ‘They’re telling people they can’t have sleeping bags to keep themselves warm,’ he added… Traci Trapani of the Sacramento Police Department said that protesters were arrested for illegal camping and resisting arrest… ‘It wasn’t a quick just ‘arresting people’ type of thing. It’s been percolating for weeks,’ she said… The protesters were accused of having “camping paraphernalia”… Representatives from the city government have stated throughout the protest that they have no intention of changing or repealing the laws against urban camping.”

NSA Blowback—Netanyahu and NWO Agents Are Swimming in Flocks of Dodos – by Jonas E. Alexis, VeteransToday.com – “So, according to the Neoconservative worldview, spying on virtually everyone (except the state of Israel) for the sake of “national security” is right. But that promiscuous thesis has fallen on hard time. It has recently been reported that the NSA has been used to spy on some of its creators, namely, the Zionist regime in Israel. How did the Neocons and their puppets respond?.. Well, you know the drill. They told us that it is wrong, always, everywhere, and for anyone, to use the NSA to spy on foreign potentates like Benjamin Netanyahu. We are also told that the Obama administration has committed an unpardonable sin, even though it was reported that Netanyahu himself spied on the Iran talks.[16] Jewish Neocon Jonathan S. Tobin has said that Obama “crosses a line of spying.”[17] Ben Carson—bless his heart—has called it: ‘truly disgraceful. Instead of focusing on deterring the Iran nuclear threat and fighting against the Mullahs who chant ‘Death to America,’ President Obama has treated Israel, our staunch, democratic ally in the Middle East, as his real enemy.’ “

Zahran_Allouch2Surreal: West Mourns Death of Al Qaeda Collaborator in Syrian Airstrike – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “The commander of terrorist organization and Al Qaeda affiliate Jaysh al-Islam (the Army of Islam), “Sheikh” Zahran Alloush, was killed in a Syrian airstrike this week in the suburbs of Damascus… In a surreal, coordinated propaganda campaign, the Western media sidestepped Alloush’s praise of and coordination with US State Department-listed foreign terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra, previously known as Al Qaeda in Iraq – and indeed, the very terrorist organization that the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) itself sprung up from… Clearly, Jaysh al-Islam’s praise of and coordination with al-Nusra constitutes, ‘knowingly providing, or attempting or conspiring to provide, material support or resources to, or engaging in transactions with, al-Nusrah Front.’.. That none of this is mentioned in the weepy eulogies of Alloush in the wake of a Syrian airstrike should trouble the millions of Americans and Europeans who have been convinced for over a decade that Al Qaeda is their enemy and that the constant state of war imposed upon them to battle Al Qaeda and those that would aid and abet it, is an existential necessity.”

For the week of 12/21/15:

EU Army Plans Allow German Soldiers To Take Control Of Borders Without Consent Of National Governments – by Raheem Kassam, Breitbart.com – “The paper likens the idea of primarily German soldiers seizing power across Europe to the Second World War. Bruno Waterfield and Francis Elliott report: ‘The force, wearing blue armbands and an EU and agency insignia, would be equipped with naval patrol vessels, helicopters and drones, according to plans tabled yesterday by Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president’… Almost 18 months ago, UKIP’s leader, Nigel Farage, warned of the plans for an EU army in a big, pre-European Parliamentary Elections debate with then Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg… Mr. Clegg lost both televised debates in 2014, notably calling Mr. Farage’s warning a “dangerous fantasy”. He said: ‘The idea there’s going to be a European air force, a European army, it is simply not true. This is a dangerous fantasy… it is not going to happen.’.. The Times also reports that a major European summit, due to be dominated by UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s “renegotiation” demands to halt a British exit from the EU, will instead now focus on the plans for the EU army.”

Vaccines’ Dark Inferno: What Is Not on Insert Labels? – by Gary Null, PhD and Richard Gale, GreenMedInfo.com – “It was reconfirmed that vaccines are ‘widely contaminated by viral and DNA genetic code fragments, many viruses and proteins.’ There was expressed concern that these may also contain prions (tiny proteins responsible for incurable diseases and neurological disorders in both humans and animals) and oncogenes (a gene that turns normal cells into cancerous ones). One attendee, Dr. Goldberg, stated, ‘There are countless thousands of undiscovered viruses, proteins and similar particles. We have only identified a very small part of the microbial world – and we can only test for those we have identified. Thus the vaccine cultures could contain many unknown particles.’.. Dr. Andrew Lewis of the FDA said that a brand-new monkey-human mutant virus was created during the course of developing an adenovirus vaccine with adenvovirus-SV40 hybrid viruses. Dr. Lewis also worried that “foreign cellular DNA” common in childhood vaccines could include “viral oncogenes” capable of causing cancer… The scientists presented a question to themselves as to whether an attenuated vaccine strain could revert into a variant virus capable of replicating so fast that it would cause AIDS. They agreed that they were unable to answer this question… On the question of whether mutation events could occur in children after vaccination, the answer was: ‘Recombination among a variety of viruses [contaminant viruses] and cells co-infected in tissue culture is not uncommon.’ What this basically means is that because it is “not uncommon” for genetic codes of both contaminant viruses and living cells to recombine and create mutations in laboratory cultures, this can certainly occur in a child’s body after vaccination.’ (emph. added)

Kerry-I_contradict‘US not after regime change in Syria, but Assad must go’ – Kerry to Russian TV – from RT.com – “According to the Secretary of State, it was very important for the Russian people to understand the American approach to the Syrian crisis… ‘We are not trying to do a regime change. We are not engaged in a color revolution. We’re not engaged in trying to interfere in another country … We’re trying to make peace,’ he explained… ‘Russia can’t stop the war with Assad there because Assad attracts the foreign fighters. Assad is a magnet for terrorists, because they’re coming to fight Assad,’ he said… ‘So if you want to stop the war in Syria, and we do, if you want to fight Daesh and stop the growth of terrorism, you have to deal with the problem of Assad. Now, that doesn’t mean we want to change every aspect of the government; we don’t,’ the diplomat added… The US Secretary of State also said he did not rule out the possibility of Syrian government forces loyal to Assad being viewed by Washington as a viable part of the operation against IS terrorists… ‘Absolutely,’ he said when addressed on the issue, ‘providing there is a legitimate transitional process, which the Geneva communique calls for, with a government of transition, where the opposition is part of the government and the issue of Assad will be resolved through that process and people have confidence in that.’.. ‘Under those circumstances, it is possible to envision the army of Syria, together with the opposition, turning against Daesh, providing Assad is not the long-term future of Syria,’ Kerry added.

Wave of migrant children has Texas towns scrambling to set up housing – by Matthew Teague, TheGuardian.com – “Residents in the town north-east of Dallas may not welcome the federal government’s last-minute announcement that they will place a facility in their town, but they are receiving the displaced children as warmly, and quickly, as they can… ‘A lady called me from Ohio and chewed me up, called me treasonous, everything,’ said Eddie Walker, who owns the Sabine Creek ranch camp, where hundreds of children arrived Saturday. ‘But locally the response has been almost all positive. (Note: Is that true? How does he know?) People want to help.’.. In October and November, more than 10,000 unaccompanied minors crossed the border through Mexico, more than twice as many as the same months last year. As a result US detention centers have overflowed, and the government is building temporary shelters… Towns selected for shelters in Texas and California are finding out sometimes a couple days in advance, and residents are scrambling to understand what impact the centers will have.” (emph. added)

Obama’s National Address*- (*Edited for Accuracy) 2min 29

Syria: The break for the border – by Pepe Escobar, RT.com – “The current shadow play – which includes the deployment of US Special Forces to northern Syria – opens the possibility that Turks and Americans are about to launch a major offensive to expel Islamic State from the crucial Jarabulus crossroads. Erdogan’s pretext is well known: to block by any means the attempt by YPG Syrian Kurds to unite their three cantons in northern Syria. In this corridor, Erdogan wants to install a dodgy, hazy bunch of Turkmen – his proxies – mixed with unspecified Sunni “moderate rebels,” keeping all lines of communication (and smuggling) with Turkey open… Syrian Kurds, on the other hand, want to get there first. With American air support. And with Russian air support. This is one of the few things Team Obama and the Kremlin do agree on in Syria – to the absolute despair of the Sultan. The inside word from Ankara is that Turkey would be ready for a ground push on Jarabulus but only under American cover. Quite absurd, considering Washington and Ankara hardly are looking for the same endgame.”

Assad_Must_GoNeocons Object to Syrian Democracy – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “…in a furious editorial on Friday, the Post castigated Secretary of State John Kerry for saying – after a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow – that the Obama administration and Russia see the political solution to Syria “in fundamentally the same way,” meaning that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could stand for election in the future… The Post wrote: “Unfortunately, that increasingly appears to be the case — and not because Mr. Putin has altered his position. For four years, President Obama demanded the departure of Mr. Assad, who has killed hundreds of thousands of his own people with chemical weapons, ‘barrel bombs,’ torture and other hideous acts. Yet in its zeal to come to terms with Mr. Putin, the Obama administration has been slowly retreating from that position.”

Darth_StateThe Plot of Star Wars Frighteningly Resembles Modern Day America – by Dan Sanchez, ActivistPost.com – “All the steps in the Dark Lord’s rise to total power were enabled by the crises of wars that he himself engineered. The overriding theme of the first trilogy is that the star wars engendered galactic tyranny. This is a perfectly realistic narrative motif, because it is merely an interstellar extrapolation of Randolph Bourne’s insight that war is the health of the State. The emergency-propelled rise of the Sith also fits with Robert Higgs’s broader insight that crisis is the health of Leviathan… Indeed, throughout history, rulers, regimes, and power cliques (just like Sidious and the Sith) have dragged their countries into wars in order to acquire, shore up, and enhance their power. This power play almost always works, because war activates in indoctrinated adherents of a State what Randolph Bourne called the “herd mind”: a sort of statist Protocol 66… Terrorized by the menaces of war, and aroused by its prizes, State citizens react like a spooked herd or a ravenous pack. They become as docile as sheep or dogs (or Sith-bred clones) to their shepherds and masters in government, swarming to their feet and granting them sweeping emergency authority, just as the war-spooked Galactic Senate repeatedly empowered Palpatine. They yield their liberties, even to the point of renouncing their individuality (like how the imperial troopers were all clones of a single man).”

Eureka-The_MarshThese 15 Cities Are Destroying Homeless Camps Just Days Before Christmas – Cities across the country are waging an unprecedented war against the homeless – by Tom Cahill, USUnCut.com – “Christmas is normally known as the time of year when Americans try to be a little more giving, more compassionate, and more altruistic than during the other 11 1/2 months of the year. But in cities across the US, many are simply fighting for the right to exist in hastily-constructed homeless camps. The National Alliance to End Homelessness reports that on any given night, there are over 578,000 Americans sleeping on the streets. At the same time, there are at least 10 million vacant homes across America that are lying empty… Here are 15 cities that are going above and beyond to push the most vulnerable Americans out of the public eye during the most compassionate time of the year…”

Turkey ‘officially acknowledges’ attack on Su-24 was a planned step – Russian MoD – from RT.com – “The statement recently made by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus in which he provides information on Russian sorties in Syria, ‘can be regarded as official acknowledgment by Turkey that the operation to destroy the Russian jet in Syria and kill Russian soldiers was a planned step,’ he said… Ankara’s awareness of Russian military operations in Syria confirms that all intelligence given to the US under the memorandum signed between the two countries and regulating the operations of their air forces in Syria was passed to the Turkish General Staff, he added… Speaking about the report published on Wednesday by Amnesty International, Konashenkov said it includes no facts, only “clichés” and groundless accusations… The NGO’s report accused Russia of failing to acknowledge it carried out strikes that ‘killed hundreds of civilians and caused massive destruction in residential areas.’ The report was based on eyewitness testimonies and videos “showing the aftermath of the attacks,” the human rights group said… Konashenkov said there is nothing new in the report and the most striking thing are the words “seem” and “appear,” which are used to describe the reports of the so-called “Russian attacks.” ”

Chem-SunsetCui Bono? New Manhattan Chemtrail Project Motives – by Peter Kirby, ActivistPost.com – “If you do not know what the New Manhattan Project is, please refer to the author’s previous work “Chemtrails Exposed: A History of the New Manhattan Project.”.. It is incredibly bold to routinely dump megatons of toxic metals into our atmosphere. Committing crimes of this magnitude, openly in the sky above us, could very well lead to new Nuremberg trials. Considering the level of risk involved, what might be the rewards for these outrageous crimes against Humanity?.. For the worldly, the potential rewards are great… Weather’s effect upon business activity has been studied extensively at the highest levels since at least the mid-1950s. In 1971, an organization called Research Applied to National Needs (RANN) was created within the National Science Foundation to study the economic benefits of weather modification. The weather modification literature is replete with examples of favorable cost-to-benefit ratios.”

Unstoppable California Gas Leak Being Called Worst Catastrophe Since BP Spill – from HealthFreedoms.org – “This methane disaster is worse than can be sufficiently described in words, because while it’s estimated well over 100,000 pounds of methane spew into the atmosphere every hour, the leak can’t be halted, at least until spring. Even then, that stoppage depends entirely on the efficacy of a proposed fix — which remains a dubiously open question… ‘The enormity of the Aliso Canyon gas leak cannot be overstated. Gas is escaping through a ruptured pipe more than 8,000 feet underground, and it shows no signs of stopping. As the pressure from the weight on top of the pipe causes the gas to diffuse, it only continues to dissipate across a wider and wider area,’ explained Erin Brockovich, who spent time in nearby Porter Ranch investigating the leak… Thousands of households have evacuated the area, despite little help, much less information, from the gas company about when they might be able to return. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, SoCalGas spokesperson Michael Mizrahi claimed the company had paid to relocate and house 2,092 households — but that effort is severely lacking, says Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer… On Thursday, Los Angeles Unified School District board members voted unanimously to close two Porter Ranch schools and relocate their 1,900 students and staff to different locations for the foreseeable future. A local emergency has been declared by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.”

Saudi-Father_n_SonThe Coming Saudi Crack-up? – by Daniel Lazare, ConsortiumNews.com – “The reason is an unprecedented avalanche of problems pouring down on Saudi Arabia since 79-year-old Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud assumed the throne last January. A hardliner in contrast to his vaguely reformist predecessor Abdullah, Salman lost no time in letting the world know that a new sheriff was in town. He upped the number of public executions, which, at 151, are now running at nearly double last year’s rate… After meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, he promised to intensify efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by increasing aid to Al Nusra, Al Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate. A few weeks later, he assembled a coalition of nine Sunni Arab states to launch nightly bombing raids on Yemen, quickly reducing one of the poorest countries in the Middle East to ruin… But if Salman thought such actions would win him respect, he was wrong. Instead, the result has been a steady drum beat of negative publicity as the world awakes to the fact that, with its public beheadings and barbaric treatment of women, the Islamic state headed by the House of Saud is little different from the Islamic State headed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in northern Syria and Iraq.”

TSA Quietly Moves to Make Body Scanners Mandatory – by Joshua Krause, ActivistPost.com – “The DHS hasn’t explained what conditions would prompt their agents to force you into the scanner, which is awfully convenient. I suppose if they wanted to, they could just force everybody to get scanned, which is probably what this policy change will eventually lead to. The TSA is, after all, notoriously bad at catching terrorists (as are these machines). Their real job is to acclimate the population to be more obedient, and that means periodically introducing new rights violations in small, unnoticeable increments.”

Pepe EscobarHappy Holidays!: Empire of Chaos Preparing For More Fireworks in 2016 – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Only six decades later, it’s clear there won’t be an American Silk Road in the 21st century, but rather, just like its ancient predecessor, a Chinese one. Beijing’s push for what it calls “One Belt, One Road” is inbuilt in the 21st century conflict between the declining empire and Eurasia integration. Key subplots include perennial NATO expansion and the empire’s obsession in creating a war zone out of the South China Sea… As the Beijing-Moscow strategic partnership analyses it, the oligarchic elites who really run the Empire of Chaos are bent on the encirclement of Eurasia – considering they may be largely excluded from an integration process based on trade, commerce and advanced communication links… Beijing and Moscow clearly identify provocation after provocation, coupled with relentless demonization. But they won’t be trapped, as they’re both playing a very long game.”

Wiretapped calls reveal communication between Turkish officers and ISIS – report – from RT.com – “The wiretapping reportedly took place last year as part of an investigation into six missing Turkish citizens, the Cumhuriyet reported. The relatives of those missing believed they might have joined the ranks of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants… An investigation was launched into as many as 27 suspects, some of them in Syria, the report revealed… The Chief Prosecutor’s office reportedly received permission to wiretap the phones of 19 people who were thought to have put the six missing persons in touch with Islamic State. The investigation reportedly revealed that those who wanted to join IS ranks received some form of “ideological training.”.. The file on the investigation is said to have been handed over to the Military Prosecutor’s office in March, after the Ankara Prosecutor’s office deemed the issue outside of its jurisdiction, according to the Turkish newspaper.”

Russian intel spots 12,000 oil tankers & trucks on Turkey-Iraq border – General Staff – from RT.com – ” ‘It must be noted that oil from both Iraq and Syria come through this [Zakho] checkpoint’ General Rudskoy said… Heavy-duty trucks loaded with oil continue to cross the Turkish-Syrian border as well, Rudskoy said. At the same time, the number of tankers on the northern and western routes used for transporting oil from Syria is declining, the general added… ‘According to satellite data, the number of oil tankers moving through the ‘northern route’ towards the refinery in the [Turkish] city of Batman has considerably diminished,’ Rudskoy said, adding that the number of tankers using the ‘western route,’ between the Turkish cities of Reyhanli [on the Syrian border] and the city of Iskenderun, has decreased to 265 vehicles.”
The Shocking, Unacceptable Levels of Hunger and Homelessness in American Cities – A new report looks at the issue in 22 cities around the country – by Kali Holloway, Alternet.org – “● Emergency food assistance requests rose by an average of 2.8 percent during the survey period in more than half, 61 percent, of the cities involved in the survey. ● Twenty-three percent of requests for emergency food assistance in the cities surveyed went unmet. ● Food pantries and emergency kitchens had to cut back on the amount of food given out as groceries or meals in 47 percent of cities involved in the survey. ● Additionally, in far more than half of cities surveyed, 57 percent, families and individuals had to cut down on the number of visits to charitable food outlets they could make each month. ● The same percentage of cities were unable to meet food requests by homeless and hungry residents demand because they lacked sufficient resources. ● Lack of affordable housing, an issue that continues to worsen in many places around the country, was the primary reason given for homelessness among families with children. ● Poverty, unemployment and low-paying jobs were the reasons that followed. ● In 50 percent of cities surveyed, mayors indicated they expected homelessness to rise “moderately” next year. Similarly, 65 percent of cities say they expect emergency food requests to “moderately” increase over the coming 12 months.”

Leader’s Top Aide: US Plotting to Disintegrate Iraq, Syria into 8 New States – from en.FarsNews.com – ” ‘The US is after implementing its plot to create a Greater Middle-East whose aim is disintegrating Iraq into three countries and dividing Syria into five states in a bid to downsize countries to provide security to the Zionist regime,’ Velayati said on Saturday… He also referred to the regional developments, and said, ‘What we are witnessing today, including the creation of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and the ISIL, is aimed at confronting the Islamic Awakening and annihilating the chain of resistance.’.. ‘Today, Syria is the golden chain of resistance and the US, the western states and their allies in the region are attempting to destroy this chain,’ Velayati said… His remarks came as General Vincent Stewart, the head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency, claimed in September that Iraq and Syria were unlikely to emerge intact from years of war and sectarian violence.”

Crimean blockade organizer launches guerrilla ‘Tatar battalion’ with ‘Turkish help’ – from RT.com – “Lenur Islyamov who represents the unregistered organization “Majlis of Crimean Tatars”, announced that the Turkey is taking an active role in the formation of the “Tatar battalion” tasked with “protecting the Crimean frontier” and carrying out attacks inside the peninsula… ‘While the Ukrainian Defense Ministry still only scratches its head, the Turkish Defense Ministry has already begun supporting us,’ said Islyamov, adding that Ankara has so far provided the newly-assembled radical force with boots and uniforms… The volunteer battalion is allegedly relying on “public donations” so far, but soon, Islyamov hopes, the paramilitary structure will be incorporated into Ukraine’s defense forces… ‘We now have more than a hundred people who have already entered the battalion as volunteers, but we hope that after all the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will create and allow the Crimean Tatars to have their own national battalion within the armed forces,’ Islyamov told 112 Ukraine TV channel… Islyamov hopes that the new force of around 560 fighters will serve as a “Tatar navy seals” battalion. The main task of the paramilitary unit will be guerrilla warfare and acts of sabotage inside the Crimea.” (emph. added)

Zahran_AllouchMajor CIA Operative in Syria, Zahran Allouch of Jeish Al Islam Killed by Russians – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – “Senior members of Ahrar Sham’s Shura (consultative) Council sent their condolences on the death of Allouch, who was known as the most formidable sworn enemy of President Assad across Southern Syria, as his elimination strikes a lethal blow at Jeish al-Islam and other militant groups in Syria… Zahran Allouch was notorious for his vast ethnic cleansing of Shias in Syria. Allouch’s death will likely exacerbate terrorists’ military problems in Southern Syria, specially in Damascus province… The Russian airstrike targeted Jeish al-Islam commanders’ meeting. Hamza Bayrakdar, Spokesman of Jeish al-Islam, was also killed in the airstrike in Eastern Ghouta… Jeish al-Islam is one of the largest terrorist groups in Southern Syria and the biggest one in Eastern Ghouta… Jeish al-Islam is a Saudi-backed Takfiri terrorist group affiliated to the Islamic Front a conglomerate of tens of terrorist groups fighting against the Syrian government.”

Thousands in Germany protest Turkish crackdown on Kurds (w/VIDEO – 2min) – from RT.com – “Turkey resumed a crackdown on Kurdish rebels five months ago after a two-year ceasefire. PKK is considered a terrorist organization in Turkey and has been in a guerrilla war with Ankara since 1984. An estimated 40,000 lives have been claimed by the conflict… Hostilities resumed after the PKK sent fighters to neighboring Syria to help fellow Kurds fight off the forces of the Islamic State terrorist group, which were advancing on the border city of Kobani. Turkey resisted the move, despite formally being part of a US-led coalition fighting IS, which supports the Kurdish war effort… So far, Turkish airstrikes have targeted Kurdish forces to a greater extent than those of the jihadists.”

For the week of 12/14/15:

Turkey misfires in Iraq – Turkey’s not-so-hidden agenda – from Al-Monitor.com – “Semih Idiz suggests that Turkey’s deployment was a likely attempt by Erdogan ‘to establish a Sunni sphere of influence in and around Mosul.’ Metin Gurcan adds that in addition to seeking to ‘be among the key actors to decide on the future of Mosul,’ Turkey is seeking to balance Iranian influence and ‘is particularly uneasy with the PKK [Kurdistan Workers Party] gains in Iraq and Syria. Turkey wants to militarily dominate the Shengal region, which has been a bridge between the PKK and the Kurdish nationalist Democratic Union Party [PYD] in Syria, to cripple that link.’.. The Turkish action elicited a formal protest from the Iraqi government and provoked a wave of denunciations and demonstrations led by Iraq’s Shiite political parties and militias, including a condemnation from Ayatollah Ali Sistani, Iraq’s most influential Shiite cleric. Fehim Tastekin reports that ‘among Iraqi political circles, Turkey’s policies are held responsible for the fall of Mosul and empowerment of IS.’.. Erdogan termed Iraq’s complaint to the United Nations “not a sincere step,” adding that Turkey does not have the “luxury” to wait for the Iraqi central government on threats to Turkish national security… Russia immediately and formally jumped to Iraq’s defense against what it termed Turkey’s “illegal intrusion” into Iraqi territory, accelerating the free fall in Ankara-Moscow ties over their policies in Syria.”

Adolf_ErdoganTurkey’s Aim to Annex Northern Syria and Iraq – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “Turkey is a NATO member, a close US ally in its regional war OF terror, battling Kurds in northern Syria and Iraq on the phony pretext of combating ISIS… Erdogan long coveted annexing Aleppo and other northern Syrian areas, as well as bordering Iraqi territory – the latter objective to seize and control valued Mosul area oil fields… Hundreds of its troops, tanks and artillery operate from positions near Mosul – on the phony pretext of combating ISIS and training Iraqi forces, never authorized by Baghdad. Ankara intends sending more heavily armed commandos and other combat troops… ISIS forces controlled Mosul since June 2014, the largest regional city it holds, a key oil producing area. Ankara’s aim is to seize control, perhaps complicit with ISIS, a first step toward annexation, a scheme Baghdad will challenge.”

Russia Slams Riyadh’s Syrian Opposition Agreement – from RFERL.org – “Saudi Arabia’s talks between Syrian opposition groups excluded Kurds from the outset, despite their holding large tracts of territory in Syria. They also specifically excluded the Islamic militant groups Islamic State and Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affliate, in a move that met Russia’s approval… But most of Syria’s other disparate opposition groups signed onto the agreement, which called for elections leading to an all-inclusive, democratic government for Syria, and had been hailed as “an important step” by the United States… The groups that signed the accord agreed to a cease-fire and said they were prepared to meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in January to start negotiations on a transition of power… But they riled Moscow by calling for Assad to step down at the start of a transitional period leading to elections… Moscow said there should be no “preconditions” set for a political transition… Peace negotiators in Vienna already agreed that ‘only the Syrian people can decide the fate of Syria,’ the ministry said. ‘Agreements must be respected.’.. Russia also criticized the Riyadh accord for not including members of the so-called “patriotic Syrian opposition” seen as friendly towards Assad.”

Abbie_OdonnellOnce Thriving Michigan Teenager Now Facing Death in CPS Custody – from HealthImpactNews.com – “A Michigan social worker asked the mother of a 14 year old girl if she has life insurance on her daughter, Abbie Odonnell, after the 5′ 9″ teen went from 145 lbs to 92 lbs under CPS custody. Her twin sister Alexis is being housed in a maximum security juvenile detention facility, and her bunkmate has reportedly murdered 7 people. Their 17 year old sister Alyssa is being held in another lock-down facility. The girls’ crime? The twins admitted to smoking pot on one occasion. Later the twins ran away from an abusive foster home. For the heinous crime of escaping that abuse, CPS is forcing the twins to serve a 12 month sentence in Wolverine Secure Treatment Center, and forbidding their older sister, who has done nothing wrong, to go home… Laura Dalton doesn’t think that Abbie will survive that long. Apparently, her social worker doesn’t either, but is not doing anything to fix the situation.”

Universal Vaccinations for Children will be Overseen by Committee which Accepts Vaccine Manufacturer Monies – by Janet Phelan, NaturalBlaze.com – “This Act would override any state law governing vaccine exemptions, making it mandatory for all students at public elementary and secondary schools to be vaccinated. The bill would amend the Public Health Services Act to require students ‘to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.’ (ACIP)… The bill does not, however, reveal which vaccinations would be mandatory nor does it place a cap on vaccinations… The above cited Advisory Committee, which will be making the decisions concerning which shots are mandatory, is stacked with pro-vaccination heavyweights. Notable committee members include a Dr. Kelly Moore, Director, Tennessee Immunization Program, Dr. Edward Belongia, Director, Center for Clinical Epidemiology & Population Health at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation and Dr. Kathleen Harriman, Chief, Vaccine Preventable Disease Epidemiology Section with the California Department of Public Health, to name a few. Also sitting on the Committee as Ex Officio members are Department of Defense (DoD) officials as well as FDA officials and members of the Department of Veterans Affairs, among representatives from other federal agencies.”

Hillary-Next_LevelBragging that she and Israel were born within months, Hillary Clinton wants to take relationship to ‘next level’ – by Philip Weiss, Mondoweiss.net – Hillary: ‘In this period of period of peril, Israel needs a strong America by its side, and America needs a strong and secure Israel by our side. It’s in our national interest to have an Israel that remains a bastion of stability and a core ally in a region in chaos. An Israel strong enough to deter its enemies, and strong enough to take steps in the pursuit of peace. We need a brave democracy whose perseverance and pluralism are a rebuke to every extremist and tyrant. We need a light unto the nations as darkness threatens. Today three trends in the region and the world are converging and making our alliance with Israel more indispensable than ever. The first is a rising tide of extremism across a wide arc of instability, from North Africa to South Asia. The second is Iran’s continued aggression… The third is the growing effort to delegitimize Israel on the world stage. America and Israel need to address these threats together. We must take an already strong relationship to the next level. We have to develop a common, strategic vision and pursue a coordinated approach, deepen our cooperation and consultation across the board.’

Putin-Kerry-Dont_PointPutin Throws Down the Gauntlet – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “So what choice does Putin have?.. None. He has no choice. His back is against the wall. He has to fight. No one in Washington seems to get this. They think Putin can throw in the towel and call it “quits” at the first sign of getting bogged down. But he can’t throw in the towel because Russia’s facing an existential crisis. If he loses, then Russia’s going to wind up on the same scrap heap as Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya. You can bet on it. So the only thing he can do is win. Period. Victory isn’t an option, it’s a necessity… Do you think that Putin and his advisors have had their heads in the sand for the last 15 years, that they haven’t noticed the US rampaging around the globe bumping off one country after the other leaving behind nothing but anarchy and ruin? Do you think they don’t know that Russia is on the top of Washington’s hit-list? Do you think they haven’t noticed NATO inching closer to Russia’s borders while foam-at-the-mouth politicians in Washington wave their fists and growl about Hitler Putin and evil Russia?.. Of course they’ve noticed. Everyone’s noticed. Everyone knows Washington is on the warpath and its leaders have gone stark raving mad. How could they not notice?”

AFRICOM’s Secret Empire: US Military Turns Africa Into ‘Laboratory’ Of Modern Warfare – from MintPressNews.com – ” ‘Apart from Djibouti, there’s no significant stockpiling of troops, equipment, or even aircraft. There are a myriad of ‘lily pads’ or small forward operating bases… so you can spread out even a small number of forces over a very large area and concentrate those forces quite quickly when necessary.’.. After years of denials, the Pentagon has slowly begun admitting to the existence of some of its outposts, with a 2015 Pentagon list now including three “cooperative security locations,” ranging from a medical research facility in Egypt to a seaport in Kenya, and AFRICOM commander Gen. David Rodriguez admitted to the existence of 11 such sites in a May interview with military news publication Stars & Stripes… This newfound transparency is likely a prelude to even more military expansion in Africa and elsewhere. On Thursday, The New York Times reported on a Pentagon plan to expand U.S. military might in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, under the pretext of defending against Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the group also known as the Islamic State, ISIS or ISIL) and other forms of Islamic extremism.” (emph. added)

Quentin_LettsBBC Censors Skepticism of Human-caused Climate Change – by Steve Byas, TheNewAmerican.com – “Quentin Letts (shown) recently wrote an article for the U.K.’s Daily Mail about the incident, in which he explained that his “What’s The Point Of … ?” series on BBC was a “chatty, personal look” at certain British institutions such as the Tate Gallery or the National Trust, giving their pros and cons… Though the half-hour show is intended to be “absurdly comical” at times, his program entitled “What’s The Point of the MET Office?” — in which Letts examined the history of weather-forecasting in Britain — was considered no laughing matter by the devotees of the widely debunked theory of man-made global climate change… Letts argued that he had interviewed on the program both climate change supporters and skeptics; however, it was the presence of the skeptics that blackballed the program.”

Venezuela Election Aftermath: Privatization Looms – from TelesurTV.net – “The right-wing coalition of parties, known as the MUD, that won a supermajority in Venezuela’s National Assembly elections Dec. 6, has laid out its plan for a radical departure from the policies and laws laid down over the past 17 years by the socialist government… Amid news of political infighting, on Thursday evening the MUD published on its website a list of laws its lawmakers plan to overturn once they come into office Jan. 5, including revoking price controls that have kept basic goods affordable; privatizing key enterprises and services; giving foreign companies concessions for infrastructure works; strengthening local police forces; and making public media “independent,” or private.”

Israeli-F15Israeli fighter jets bomb besieged Gaza Strip – from PressTV.ir – “The airborne assaults, which were launched in the early hours of Monday morning, reportedly hit several targets including military posts in the northern and central parts of the Palestinian blockaded enclave… According to local Palestinian media, Israeli Apache helicopters were also involved and launched at least two missiles at the northwestern part of the strip, targeting the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, a military wing of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement… Israeli sources claimed that the air raids were conducted in response to a rocket attack that had struck the southern part of the Israeli-occupied territories a few hours earlier, blaming the attack on the Palestinian resistance movement.”

Must Read: Income Tax & Bank Fraud: Memorandum of Law Lays Bare the Hoax that is the Internal Revenue Code – by PL Chang, Omnithought.org – “Breakthrough Memorandum of Law obliterates in 20 pages the fraud that has made the 3,837-page Internal Revenue Code a monolith of impenetrability. General knowledge of the contents of the Memorandum ultimately will result in withdrawal of cooperation on the part of a sufficient number of former victims of the fraud so as to lead to its elimination.”

THE SAN BERNARDINO SHOOTING – What Really Happened Behind The Scenes? – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “After a week of whitewashed reports, a media scripted ransacking of the alleged ‘shooters’ home (tampering with a potential crime scene) and eyewitness accounts that contradict the official narrative, we also learn that in the very room where 14 people were reportedly killed (along with 21 injured) during a deadly shooting attack at the Inland Regional Center, there was an “active-shooter” training drill involving some of the victims almost a year before the attack… Here’s what doesn’t add up… New information emerged casually in the mainstream media, prompting critics of such sensationalized events to have even more reason to question the validity of the official story surrounding this latest ‘mass shooting’ incident… In our previous articles on this subject, we pointed out multiple markers which clearly indicate ‘active shooter’ armed rehearsal drills held at and around the Inland Regional Center location. Here’s another – another unbelievable development discussed recently by the LA Times: ‘About a year ago, employees of San Bernardino County’s Environmental Health Services division underwent an “active-shooter training.”.. It was held at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino — in the very same room that would one day be a site of bloodshed and horror.’ ”

John_WhiteheadDon’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusion of Freedom in America – by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford.org – “The problem, of course, is that luck will not save us. As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the people dealing the cards—the politicians, the corporations, the judges, the prosecutors, the police, the bureaucrats, the military, the media, etc.—have only one prevailing concern, and that is to maintain their power and control over the citizenry, while milking us of our money and possessions… It really doesn’t matter what you call them—Republicans, Democrats, the 1%, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military industrial complex—so long as you understand that while they are dealing the cards, the deck will always be stacked in their favor… Incredibly, no matter how many times we see this played out, Americans continue to naively buy into the idea that politics matter, as if there really were a difference between the Republicans and Democrats (there’s not).”

U-Turn? Kerry Now Says: ‘U.S. NOT Seeking Regime Change in Syria’ – by Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com and 21stCenturyWire.com – “While US Republican Party debutantes were competing to see which candidate would be the toughest in “standing up against Russia,” and endless shilling for regime change in Syria, with GOP runners Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Carly Fiorina all screaming that, “Assad must go”… Secretary Kerry made a stunning admission which was blacked-out by the entire US mainstream media, and drowned-out online because of Donald Trump and the GOP circus: ‘The United States and our partners are not seeking so-called regime change,’ said Kerry… This is a complete u-turn position from what Washington and its allies have been saying for the last 4 years. Why now? What happened to Kerry’s previous claims likening Assad to Hitler?”

Yats-Wont-PayUkraine not to repay $3-billion debt to Russia: Premier – from PressTV.ir – “Addressing a cabinet meeting on Friday, Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Kiev had decided to impose a “moratorium” on the Russian bond, meaning the Ukrainian government would officially default on the bond due on December 20… ‘From today we are halting payments on this debt,’ said the Ukrainian premier, adding, ‘I stress, once again, that we are ready for a legal process with the Russian side.’.. The announcement came a week after Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to take Ukraine to court should the Kiev government fail to repay the debt on time. Kiev has a 10-day grace period to pay debt to Moscow after the late December deadline… The two sides have been engaged in a dispute over the USD three-billion loan given by Moscow the government of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych shortly before his ouster in 2013.”

He noted the effectiveness of Russia’s anti-terrorist aerial campaign in Syria, adding: ‘We are not using everything we have there’ or can bring to the table. ‘We have additional means, and we will use them if necessary’ in an all-out effort to eliminate a common scourge… Earlier, Putin made it very clear Russia intends continuing its war on terrorism until its objectives are accomplished – no matter how long it takes.”

ISIS IP Addresses Traced Back To Saudi Arabia and UK Governments – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The Mirror reports that VandaSec showed them the IP addresses used by a group of three separate jihadists (digital ones at least) to access their Twitter accounts. What appeared at first to suggest that the IP addresses were based in Saudi Arabia soon revealed that the addresses linked back to the DWP in the UK… ‘VandaSec’s work has sparked wild rumours suggesting someone inside the DWP is running ISIS-supporting accounts, or they were created by intelligence services as a honeypot to trap wannabe jihadis,’ Jasper Hamill writes… The Mirror then claims to have traced the IP addresses shown to them by VandaSec and allegedly found that the addresses pointed to ‘a series of unpublicized transactions between Britain and Saudi Arabia.’.. The Mirror reports it has learned that the British government sold a significant number of IP addresses to two Saudi Arabian firms and, after the sale in October, the IP addresses were being used to spread ISIS propaganda.”

Markin said that he considers the version of the MH17 downing on July 17, 2014 over eastern Ukraine by an air-to-air missile to be in priority… ‘Moreover, experts suppose that the rocket type established was not manufactured in Russia,’ he told TASS on Wednesday… He stressed that the experts’ conclusions indicate support to the testimony Evgeny Agapov, an aviation armaments mechanic in the Ukrainian Air Force, who is under Russian state protection as “key witness” to the MH17 crash… Specifically, Agapov testified that on July 17, 2014 a Ukrainian Sukhoi Su-25 jet aircraft piloted by a “Captain Voloshin” who “set out for a military task” and returned without ammunition… …Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said Wednesday there are no grounds to set up a tribunal… ‘Our doubts are shared by China.

He added that the criminal inquiry is being carried out in a ‘strictly secret mode between several countries.’ ”

Security_Council-Syria_Peace_ResU.N. endorses Syria peace plan in rare show of unity among big powers – by Denis Dyomkin, John Irish and Sabine Siebol, Reuters.com – “The resolution gives a U.N. blessing to a plan negotiated previously in Vienna that calls for a ceasefire, talks between the Syrian government and opposition, and a roughly two-year timeline to create a unity government and hold elections… But the obstacles to ending the nearly five-year civil war remain daunting, with no side in the conflict able to secure a clear military victory. Despite their agreement, the major powers are bitterly divided on who may represent the opposition as well as on the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad… ‘This council is sending a clear message to all concerned that the time is now to stop the killing in Syria and lay the groundwork for a government that the long-suffering people of that battered land can support,’ U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told the 15-nation council after the vote… The resolution also calls for the U.N. to present the council with options for monitoring a ceasefire within one month.”

Syria opposition skeptical over UN-backed peace plan – from Reuters via Lebanon Daily Star – “A U.N.-backed roadmap to end the Syrian war was met with skepticism Saturday by members of the country’s fractured opposition who insist President Bashar Assad must go to achieve peace… The U.S. and Russian initiative, unanimously approved by the U.N. Security Council on Friday, foresees talks between the rebels and the government and a rapid ceasefire, perhaps even next month… But the plan was described as unrealistic by the Istanbul-based National Coalition, the main Syrian opposition grouping… The resolution ‘undermines the outcome of the meetings of revolutionary forces in Riyadh and waters down previous U.N. resolutions concerning a political solution in Syria,’ coalition head Khaled Khoja said on Twitter.”

For the week of 12/7/15:

Syria-Opposition_SurrenderThousands of Takfiri Terrorists Lay Down Arms in Syria – from Geopolitics.co – “Over 180 wanted militants turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities in Dara’a on Sunday as the army is tightening grip on the terrorist groups across the country… The sources said that the recent victories of the Syrian army and National Defense Forces (NDF), with the backup of the Russia fighter jets, have caused a growing number of Takfiri terrorists to lay down their arms in Dara’a province in the hope that they will be pardoned by the government… Earlier today, the Syrian government announced that it has released tens of militants who had been jailed for armed struggle against the Damascus government… President Bashar Assad’s government freed 270 militants within the framework of the country’s reconciliation plan, the Arabic service of Russia Today television channel said.”

Syria: Ultimate Pipelineistan War – by Pepe Escobar, CounterPunch.org – “So, in the Big Picture, from Washington’s point of view, what matters most of all, once again, is «isolating» Iran from Europe. Washington’s game is to privilege Qatar as a source, not Iran, and Turkey as the hub, for the EU to diversify from Gazprom… This is the same logic behind the construction of the costly Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline, facilitated in Azerbaijan by Zbigniew «Grand Chessboard» Brzezinski in person… As it stands, prospects for both pipelines are less than dismal. The Vienna peace process concerning Syria will go nowhere as long as Riyadh insists on keeping its weaponized outfits in the «non-terrorist» list, and Ankara keeps allowing free border flow of jihadis while engaging in dodgy business with stolen Syrian oil… What’s certain is that, geo-economically, Syria goes way beyond a civil war; it’s a vicious Pipelineistan power play in a dizzying complex chessboard where the Big Prize will represent a major win in the 21st century energy wars.”

jonathan-lundgrenThis Scientist Uncovered Problems With Pesticides – Then the Government Started to Make His Life Miserable – by Tom Philpott, MotherJones.com – “In his August 3 letter announcing Lundgren’s two-week suspension, the ARS’s McMurtry declared two topics of Lundgren’s research to be “sensitive”—meaning, he writes, subjects that agency scientists can’t publish or speak to media about without ‘prior approval at the Area and National Program levels.’.. Now, it’s unclear exactly what makes a topic “sensitive.” Weeks ago, a spokesman for the Agricultural Research Service’s press office told me that he would look up the agency’s formal criteria for sensitivity and divulge it to me. Since then, he has repeatedly declined to answer the question. But it’s abundantly clear that many of Lundgren’s findings don’t jibe with industry interests… Take neonicotinoids, the globe’s most widely used class of insecticides with annual sales of about $2.6 billion. In a peer-reviewed 2015 paper co-authored with a South Dakota State University professor—the one the ARS accuses him of submitting for publication without proper internal approval—Lundgren found that one common neonic, clothianidin, marketed by Bayer, harms monarch butterflies at levels commonly found in Midwestern milkweed plants, the endangered insect’s habitat and food source.”

The Paris Attacks Are Just The Beginning – from StormCloudsGathering.com – “What’s happening in France should not be viewed in isolation. Xenophobic sentiment has been on the rise throughout Europe, and is gaining ground politically. This trend has clearly been exacerbated by the ongoing migrant crisis (which is obviously tied to the regime change policies of the West) but one variable in this equation that no one is talking about is the fact that the way immigration has been handled in Europe is not merely a question of short sightedness, it is a reflection of policy… In 2012 UN migration chief Peter Sutherland urged the EU to “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states. Such a proposition may sound absurd, unless you take into account that breaking down the national identity of a country makes it much easier to dissolve political boundaries and independence. And that’s precisely what the technocrats in Brussels want.”

Khalida_Jarrar2Israeli court jails Palestinian MP for 15 months: army – from DailyStar.com.lb – “Issa Qaraqe, Palestinian minister for prisoner affairs, condemned the trial, calling it ‘arbitrary and legally unjustified.’.. ‘This is a political arrest. The charges against her are fabricated and ridiculous… there are no security reasons as claimed by the Israeli authorities,’ he told AFP… Jarrar is a member of the Palestinian parliament which has not met since 2007 after elections a year earlier were won by the Islamist movement Hamas… Addameer said that five of the 132 members of that parliament are currently detained by Israel, including Marwan Barghouti — among the most prominent Palestinian leaders. Qaraqe condemned what he said was a “campaign” to prosecute parliamentarians… In August 2014 Jarrar was ordered to leave Ramallah within 24 hours and to move to Jericho, but announced at the time she would disobey.”

ISIS Makes Major Move In Yemen, Assassinates Aden’s Governor After Executing Two Dozen Houthis – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “What this suggests is that ISIS is now set to expand its influence in Yemen. Remember, the country’s proxy war is really no different in character to what’s going on in Syria. The distinction is that in Yemen, Iran is fighting via proxy while the Saudis and Qatar are there in person while in Syria, Iran has boots on the ground while the Saudis and Qatar are fighting via proxies… Of course one of Riyadh and Doha’s proxies in the Syrian conflict is ISIS, and as mentioned above, the group is now targeting the Saudi coalition’s support base in Aden which would seem to indicate – and this is a colorful metaphor we’ve used before – that this is but another example of Frankenstein breaking out of the lab and attacking its creators. Whether or not an expanded ISIS presence in Yemen will benefit the Saudi cause largely depends on whether the Houthis become Islamic State’s main target in the country, or whether they intend to wage a protracted war against pro-Hadi forces.”

Google-spyingK-12 Students, Privacy Advocates Call for Federal Sanctions – The Electronic Frontier Foundation calls for federal sanctions – by Steven Rosenfeld, Alternet.org – ” ‘Google is violating the Student Privacy Pledge in three ways,’ said the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), in a complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission. ‘First… student personal information in the form of data about their use of non-educational Google services is collected, maintained, and used by Google for its own benefit, unrelated to authorized educational or school purposes.’.. ‘Second, the “Chrome Sync” feature of Google’s Chrome browser is turned on by default on all Google Chromebook laptops – including those sold to schools as part of Google for Education – thereby enabling Google to collect and use students’ entire browsing history and other data for its own benefit,’ EFF continues. ‘And third, Google for Education’s Administrative settings, which enable a school administrator to control settings for all program Chromebooks, allow administrators to choose settings that share student personal information with Google and third-party websites.’ ”

Voodoo Science: The Myth of Vaccine Efficacy – by Dr. Gary Null, GlobalResearch.ca – “…antibodies in turn will protect us from the infectious disease specific to a given vaccine… This central premise is virtually never challenged. Hundreds of millions of Americans simply accept that all vaccines are scientifically proven to confer immunity against disease. In a previous article, Uncovering the Cover-Up: Scientific Analysis of the Vaccine-Autism Connection, Deeply Flawed US Vaccine Policies, we examined the myths about vaccine safety and presented the actual science demonstrating vaccines’ toxic ingredients and adverse neurological effects. This report investigates the medical industry’s claims that vaccines are effective. Moreover, the independent research presented for each major vaccine raises serious questions that challenge the concept of antibody generation as a reliable factor to assure viral and bacterial immunity.” (emph. added)

Bill_HolterFinancial Markets Crashed, Including the Dollar. What Happened? – by Bill Holter, GlobalResearch.ca – “The Fed has truly painted themselves into a corner of their own making. I am shocked they have been so vocal and vehement they were going to raise rates. Did they not have a deal already in place with the ECB or were they double crossed? On the one hand if they do not hike rates, their credibility is toast. On the other hand if they do raise rates they will smoke the financial markets faster than you can call your broker with a sell order. I can only think the Fed somehow believed they had a deal with the ECB? Even the BIS has warned the Fed about raising rates, is the Fed just not listening to the rest of the world? Whether they see it or not, they have created a currency crisis with the dollar being the central character.

EFSA and Member States vs. IARC on Glyphosate: Has Science Won? – from CorporateEurope.org – “On 12 November 2015, following a long saga (see our previous article), unnamed officials from EFSA and experts from EU Member States published the outcome of their joint re-assessment of the toxicity of glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the world. More commonly known as ‘Roundup’, which is the original Monsanto trade name, it is applied to more than 150 food and non-food crops 1 and is used by millions of home-owners, businesses and public authorities to keep lawns, gardens, buildings and other land free of weeds. Glyphosate is also a cornerstone of GM crop cultivation. According to GM proponents, 57 per cent of all genetically modified crops grown commercially around the world in 2013 were herbicide tolerant, and the vast majority of these were engineered to tolerate glyphosate-based herbicides. This simplifies their cultivation in large-scale, socially and environmentally harmful monoculture plantations, also known as ‘green deserts‘… Following a peer review of available data, these anonymous officials issued several conclusions about the toxicity of glyphosate. Two of the most important outcomes were: – Glyphosate was deemed “unlikely” to cause cancer in humans; – It was suggested that the legally permissible exposure levels of EU consumers to glyphosate be increased by 66 per cent.”

Linus_PaulingDid Linus Pauling Really Get It Right Regarding Vitamin C’s Healing Powers? – by Paul A. Philips, NaturalBlaze.com – “One of the most respected scientists of all time twice Nobel Prize winner Biochemist Linus Pauling (1901-1994) was well aware of vitamin C and its involvement in the manufacture of good connective tissue and that it had been said to promote heart health… He hypothesised that heart disease was the result of developing long-term scurvy (vitamin C deficiency). So, through experimentation, he devised a unified approach for the cure of heart disease; a therapy involving high doses of vitamin C (up to 6g a day) –40-60mg RDA is the guideline amount required to prevent scurvy… In spite of Pauling’s claim to the therapy’s success mainstream medicine’s reaction was one of flat rejection, claiming that Pauling, although a great scientist, was outside of his field of expertise… That was the end-of- story in terms of vitamin C getting recognition in mainstream medicine as a cure for heart disease, until recently…”

Destroying Syria to Create Sunnistan – by Mike Whitney, GlobalResearch.ca – “Bingo. Ultimately, the war on terror is a public relations fig leaf designed to conceal Washington’s attempt to rule the world. It’s impossible to make sense of goings-on around the globe without some grasp of how seemingly random acts of violence and terror fit within the broader and more comprehensive geopolitical strategy to create a new unipolar world order, to crush all emerging rivals, and to extend US full-spectrum-dominance across the planet… So it looks like an agreement has been struck between Turkey, the KRG and the United States to seize parts of northern Iraq and eastern Syria to create a de facto Sunni state that will be jointly-controlled by Ankara and Washington. It also looks like Obama has agreed to use dodgy jihadi-proxies (aka–Terrorists) to work alongside US Special Forces to carry out future military operations. So while the effort to remove Assad has been temporarily put on the backburner, the determination to destroy Syria is as strong as ever.”

Climate Hustle: The Perfect Antidote To Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth – by James Delingpole, Breitbart.com – “Climate Hustle is the Anti Inconvenient Truth. It’s for people with an open mind who want to know what’s really going on with the world’s climate – as opposed to what hucksters like Al Gore want to persuade them is going on with the world’s climate – all backed up with hard data and evidence presented by scientists who know and understand, among them the Nobel-prize-winning Norwegian physicist Ivar Giaever… Its message ought not to be dynamite, for it is no more than basic science and established fact… But Climate Hustle is dynamite – at least it will be to most viewers, especially younger ones – because what it says is so totally at odds with almost every documentary, TV programme and film that has ever been made on the subject of global warming. (Apart from Martin Durkin’s The Great Global Warming Swindle, climate skeptical documentaries are pretty much non-existent).”

Eric_Blair-20sSocial Justice Activists Seek Equal Tyranny For All (Women to Be Drafted Soon) – by Eric Blair, ActivistPost.com – “Thus, even if the lawsuit fails, women will probably be forced to register for the military draft in the near future. I suppose I should congratulate feminists for achieving equal treatment under the Constitution, right?.. I’m the father of three boys who will NOT be registering for the draft because fuck you. You don’t own them, through government or otherwise. They own themselves. And they will not fight and die in your corporate wars… If I had daughters, I’d feel the same way. I’d feel the same way if I was black, brown or a different nationality because the principles here are peace and liberty, not someone’s fleeting definition of equality… Albert Einstein famously said ‘I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I’m willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.’ ” (emph. added)

Crimea Loses Power Temporarily, Ukraine Loses Crimea Forever – by Tony Cartalucci, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Either Kiev has no control over what takes place in its own territory or it has ordered Right Sector and other groups to initiate the blockade of Crimea. Either way, Vice President Biden’s calls for Russia to return Crimea to Ukrainian control appear irresponsible at best. With literal Neo-Nazis cutting power to 2 million civilians – a blatant war crime – seems only to further vindicate Russia’s actions regarding Crimea and the decision of the people of Crimea themselves to seek a place within the Russian Federation… Sovereignty Games: The illegitimacy of not only the regime in Kiev, but of NATO who created it and to this day perpetuates its existence, has helped erode the very principles both are now trying to appeal to in order to maintain the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Beyond Ukraine, similar scenarios are developing across all of Eastern Europe, where as NATO attempts to expand closer and closer to Russia’s borders, it is finding it increasingly difficult to find allies who are not extremists with ties to fascism and/or Nazism… By allying itself with these radical elements, those populations subjected to their NATO-backed domination of politics, economics, and security are more likely to turn toward Russia either as Crimea did, or as the break-away republics of Donetsk and Lugansk have.”

McCain-Graham-DreadfulMcCain and Graham’s Predictably Terrible Ideas for Syria – by Daniel Larison, TheAmericanConservative.com – “Notice that two out of three pieces of this “coherent strategy” are focused on attacking and/or threatening regime forces and the regime’s patrons, which has nothing to do with “destroying” ISIS and promises to widen the conflict by committing the U.S. to fight against the Syrian government and its backers. There is nothing coherent about this, unless the goal is to get the U.S. into as many simultaneous conflicts with as many different parties as possible. For the sake of defending proxies that have proved themselves to be useless, McCain and Graham want the U.S. to risk open war with Russia. When they talk about the “real costs” that they want to impose on Russia, we know they are talking about killing Russian personnel and shooting down their planes, because they have explicitly called for this in the past.”

‘Out of question’: Erdogan rules out Turkish troop withdrawal from Iraq – from RT.com – ” ‘Objections were expressed to him over such actions, with the ambassador also [being] handed a demand … [for] the immediate withdrawal of Turkish troops from the territory of Iraq,” Mihebis said… The MP also commented on Erdogan’s previous claims to Al Jazeera that Turkish troops were in Iraq at the request of the country’s prime-minister, Haider al-Abadi.’.. ‘It’s a lie. This statement has nothing to do with reality … the Turkish troops have entered Iraq as invaders without a request from Iraqi government and without its permission,’ he said… Mihebis also confirmed media reports of Turkish airstrikes targeting the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) forces in northern Iraq on Wednesday. He called the bombings ‘a new violation of Iraq’s sovereignty and of international law by Turkey.’.. ‘If Turkey does not withdraw its troops and the Security Council, the Arab League and the international community will continue to idle, we will find a way to protect our legal rights,’ Iraqi MP from the State of Law bloc, Awatif Nima, told RT.” – I wonder how that’s going to work?

U.S. Gov’t Finally Admits that Turkey Allows the Islamic State to Transport Stolen Oil Across Border – by Jay Syrmopoulos, FreeThoughtProject.com – “On Thursday, U.S. Treasury Department official Adam Szubin admitted that the Islamic State is moving the contraband oil into Turkey, but attempted to rationalize these actions by claiming that the majority of the stolen oil is being sold to the Assad government… ‘Some is coming across the border into Turkey,’ admitted Szubin… The terrorists make as much as $40 million per month selling oil and have earned more than $500 million from the oil trade so far, according to Szubin, who then attempted to place responsibility on the Assad government… ‘ISIL is selling a great deal of oil to the Assad regime,’ Szubin said, claiming that in spite of being at war, the two sides are “\’still engaged in millions and millions of dollars of trade,’ which to some degree is probably true out of necessity, but in no way excuses a NATO member state from financing a global terrorist organization.”

For the week of 11/30/15:

Got_GunsTurkey Arrests Generals for Stopping Syria-Bound Trucks ‘Filled With Arms’ – from Sputnik News.com – “In January 2014, Ankara Gendarmerie Major-General Ibrahim Aydin, former Adana Gendarmerie Brigadier-General Hamza Celepoglu and former Gendarmerie Criminal Laboratory Head Colonel Burhanettin Cihangiroglu stopped Syrian-bound trucks in southern Turkey after they received information from an anonymous source that the trucks were illegally carrying weapons to militants in Syria… When the information about the trucks became public, MIT (Turkish Intelligence) officials and high-ranking Turkish politicians, including President Recep Teyyip Erdogan, who was Prime Minister back then, and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, then the country’s foreign minister, were furious that the gendarmes stopped the trucks and said the Syria-bound trucks were carrying “humanitarian aid” to Turkmen living just south of Turkey, the newspaper said… ‘Yes, I’m saying this without any hesitation. That aid was going to the Turkmens. There will be a war next door and we will watch our Turkmen, Arab and Turkish brothers being massacred,’ Davutoglu said, as cited by Today’s Zaman… The gendarmes involved in the interception confirmed that the Syria-bound trucks weren’t going to an area where the Turkmen lived, but to an area populated by radical groups, the Turkish newspaper said… When an investigation into the MIT case was launched, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) called the probe as “treason and espionage” on the part of prosecutors.”

The “Pop” Heard ‘Round the World – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “If private investors lowered the price of US bonds for sale at that auction, they’d cause the market price for US bonds (held as bank collateral) to fall around the world. Under fractional reserve banking, a general decline in the price of US bonds could cause banks to call in billions or even trillions of dollars in loans. The impact on the US and global economies would be negative and might be disastrous. The real point, I suspect, was that significantly lower bond prices would signal a loss of much of the public confidence required to keep the whole Ponzi Scheme running… That would truly be a “failed Treasury auction” of historic proportions… What did the US Treasury do?.. Rather than allow evidence to be created on the public record of a “failed Treasury auction,” the Treasury Department closed the auction without selling a single bond. They prevented even a single sale that would help prove that the free market price for US bonds—and public confidence in government’s ability to pay its bills—had fallen significantly… That was a “failed Treasury auction” of the sort that John Whitehead and Mitt Romney had described. However, because Treasury closed the auction rather than allow one sale that would be evidence of that failure, the result was not catastrophic… Instead, for the next few years, whenever the US Treasury held an “auction,” the Federal Reserve intervened to not only buy most of the US bonds that were being sold, but also to pay “full price” for those bonds. Figuratively speaking, the Fed was over-paying $900 for a $1,000 US bond in order to conceal the fact that the private investors’ markets might not pay even $700 for the same bond… Treasury auctions were, in fact, failing. The free market price of US bonds was falling. But the Fed concealed evidence of that failure by paying more than the free-market price. Thanks to the Fed, Treasury auctions looked like “business as usual” and US bonds appeared to retain their value… By buying US bonds and paying “full price,” the Federal Reserve maintained the illusion of steady value in US bonds. So long as that illusion of value (redeemability) remained, the public retained confidence that the government could repay its debts in full. Unfortunately, that confidence is unfounded since it’s based on the Fed’s manipulation of the bond markets rather than honest, free-market prices for bonds.”

Carter-Armed_Servs_CommEscalation: U.S. Sending More Special Operators to Iraq – by Susan Jones – CNSNew.com – “”We’re at war,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. And the U.S. is sending more troops to the front… ‘Tens of thoussands of U.S. personnel are operating in the broader Middle East region. And more are on the way,’ Carter said in his opening statement… ‘In full coordination with the government of Iraq, we’re deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to assist Iraqi and Peshmerga forces put even more pressure on ISIL. These special operators will, over time, be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence, and capture ISIL leaders. This force will also be in a position to conduct unilateral operations in Syria.’.. Carter said the U.S. raids in Iraq will be done at the invitation of the Iraqi government and focus on defending its borders and building the capability of the Iraqi Security Forces… Carter said the U.S. also is expanding its attacks on ISIL’s infrastructure, including its oil wells and tankers.”

Putin-G20-2015Putin Reveals ISIS Funded by 40 Countries, Including G20 Members – by Jay Syrmopoulos, ActvistPost.com – “In addition to discussing the need to stop the flow of donor money to ISIS, Putin also reiterated the need to stop the illegal oil trade by ISIS: ‘I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products,’ he said… The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon,’ Putin said… The Islamic State makes an estimated $50 million a month from selling crude from captured oilfields in Iraq and Syria, according to Iraqi intelligence and U.S. officials… According to a report by Business Insider: ‘Oil sales — the extremists’ largest single source of continual income — are a key reason they have been able to maintain their rule over their self-declared “caliphate” stretching across large parts of Syria and Iraq. With the funds to rebuild infrastructure and provide the largesse that shore up its fighters’ loyalty, it has been able to withstand ground fighting against its opponents and more than a year of bombardment in the U.S.-led air campaign.’ “

Commander: Iraqi Forces’ Further Advance against ISIL Blocked by US – from en.FarsNews.com – ” ‘The US meddling prevents the Iraqi army and popular forces from concluding their battles against the ISIL in Ramadi and Fallujah cities,’ Commander of Imam Khamenei Battalion Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi told FNA on Sunday… He noted that the US is doing its best to prevent mop-up operations by the popular forces in Anbar province… Al-Ardavi underlined that prolonging the Anbar battle will also negatively influence the Iraqi army’s battles against the terrorists in other provinces… In September, an Iraqi analyst said that the US is using some tribesmen in the Western province of Anbar to pressure the government in Baghdad to keep the popular forces away from the battle against terrorists in the volatile region… Mohammad Na’na expressed regret that Washington has succeeded in persuading certain tribal leaders in Anbar to join its so-called war on the ISIL… ‘Washington is pressuring the Iraqi government to exclude the popular forces from the Anbar province mop-up operations,’ he told FNA… Na’na, meantime, warned against the United States’ negative role in the war on ISIL, saying field reports show that the US ground troops have played no role in the operations that led to the liberation of Anbar… Iraqi Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmad Jamal announced in September that Baghdad had rejected Washington’s demand for the deployment of the US ground force to Iraq’s war against the ISIL.”

Cops-Burger_King_surveilCops Didn’t Know this Camera Caught them Deleting Video of the Murder of Laquan McDonald – by Andrew Emett, ActivistPost.com – “But according to witness statements and police dashcam video, McDonald was walking away when Van Dyke opened fire. After McDonald had collapsed to the ground in a near-fetal position, Van Dyke continued firing his weapon until emptying his clip. As Van Dyke began reloading his gun, a fellow officer had to order him to cease firing at the dying teen… Before McDonald’s family could even file a lawsuit, the city gave them a $5 million settlement on the condition that the family agreed not to publicly release the dashcam footage of the teen’s death. After suppressing the video for 13 months, the city received a court order to release the footage. The city released the dashcam video last week, which clearly shows McDonald did not lunge at the officers before the fatal shooting… In May, Burger King district manager Jay Darshane accused officers of deleting the security footage after spending over three hours in the fast food restaurant on the night of the shooting. According to Darshane, the video equipment was working properly, but 86 minutes of footage, from 9:13 p.m. to 10:39 p.m., disappeared after the officers left… When asked if he was certain that the officers deleted the footage of the killing, Darshane answered, “Yes.”.. ‘We had no idea they were going to sit there and delete files,’ Darshane said. ‘I mean we were just trying to help the police officers.’.. Unable to clearly explain why the 86 minutes disappeared, Police Supt. Garry McCarthy blamed the missing files on technical difficulties. At a press conference last week, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez asserted that no one had tampered with the Burger King surveillance video. When asked who conducted the forensic testing, Alvarez did not appear to know the answer… Alvarez responded, ‘That’s all I’m going to say on this.’ “

Bergoglio-Sky_Is_FallingWorld headed toward ‘suicide’ if no climate agreement: pope – by Philip Pullella, Reuters.com – “The pope, who wrote a major document on the environment last June, made the comment in an hour-long news conference aboard the plane returning him to Rome at the end of a six-day trip to Africa… The freewheeling conversations have become a trademark of his papacy and the few times he takes direct questions from journalists… Francis, who visited Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic, also said the continent was “a martyr of exploitation” by wealthy countries who lust after its natural resources and try to impose Western values instead of concentrating on development… The pope was asked if the U.N. climate summit in Paris would mark a turnaround in the fight against global warming… ‘I am not sure, but I can say to you ‘now or never’,’ he said. ‘Every year the problems are getting worse. We are at the limits. If I may use a strong word I would say that we are at the limits of suicide.’ ” – Just wondering, why Reuters has decided that the title “pope” is no longer to be capitalized…

US Air Force Pilots Bombing Desert In Syria, Returning With Ordnance Allegedly Intended For ISIS – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The head of the Russian Parliament’s International Affairs Committee, Alexei Pushkov, wrote that the United States actually spent an entire year bombing nothing but the desert as opposed to any ISIS targets… Even a leading member of Congress was forced to address the issue at a meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee where he spoke with U.S. military leaders about the American “campaign” against ISIS… ‘You went 12 full months while ISIS was on the march without the U.S. using that air power and now as the pilots come back to talk to us they say three-quarters of our ordnance we can’t drop, we can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us. I don’t understand this strategy at all because this is what has allowed ISIS the advantage and ability to recruit,’ Royce said.”

Is Turkey Closing The Bosphorus Strait, Escalating With Russia? – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “According to reports from Sputnik News made only hours ago: ‘In a clear violation of international norms, Turkish authorities have created hurdles for Russian vessels passing through the Bosphorus Strait; as a result, dozens of Russian ships have been waiting for hours to obtain the green light from Turkey for passage, media reports said… ‘RIA Novosti quoted Viktor Kravchenko, former chief of staff of the Russian Navy, as saying that a possible unilateral closure by Turkey of the Bosphorus Strait for Russian ships would be out of line with international law… ‘ ‘Turkey will not close the strait to Russian vessels en route to Syria because it would be a violation of international law and the Montreux Convention, in particular, — a document that was signed by most counties at the time’, he said.’ ”

Brandon_SmithThe Fall Of America Signals The Rise Of The New World Order – by Brandon Smith, ActivistPost.com – “In “Ruling The World Of Money,” Harper’s Magazine established what Quigley admitted in Tragedy And Hope — that the control of the global economic policy and, by extension, political policy is dominated by a select few elites, namely through the unaccountable institutional framework of the BIS… The U.S. and the Federal Reserve are mere tentacles of the great vampire squid that is the new world order. And being a tentacle makes one, to a certain extent, expendable, if the trade will result in even greater centralization of power… The delusion that some people within the liberty movement are under is that the fall of America will result in the fall of the new world order. In reality, the fall of America is a necessary step towards the RISE of the new world order. The Rothschild-owned financial magazine The Economist reaffirmed this trend of economic “harmonization” in its 1988 article “Get Ready For A World Currency By 2018,” which described the creation of a global currency called the “Phoenix” over three decades…”

Global warming HOAX unravels… globalist science fraud engineered to control humanity, not save it (w/audio podcast 49 min)– by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “I used to casually believe the global warming narrative, but when I took a closer look at the data and motivations of those pushing the global warming agenda, it became obvious to me that global warming is a massive scientific hoax being perpetrated for political reasons… I’ve just posted a podcast that explains the systemic fraud and deception being carried out by “climate change alarmists” in their effort to enslave all of humanity under globalist regulatory control that would dictate all human activity (including breathing).”

Syrian_Command_SpokesmanTurkey boosts arms supplies to Syria terrorists in exchange for oil & antiques – Damascus – from RT.com – ” ‘We have certain information that the Turkish government recently increased support for terrorists and the level of supplying them with arms, ammunition and munitions to continue their criminal acts in exchange for oil and antiquities stolen from Syria and Iraq at low prices, taking advantage of the presence of terrorists whom it enabled to control border areas,’ a statement from the Syrian General Command said, as cited by official Syrian news agency SANA… The new weapons shipments, allegedly paid for with smuggled oil and artifacts, are being delivered disguised as humanitarian aid, and easily pass through Turkish border controls, Syrian officials claimed. Additionally, Turkey was accused of escalating border tensions by shelling Syrian army positions in northwestern Latakia province from al-Aqra’a Mountain on Friday night.” (emph. added)

Forensic science lab pressured by law enforcement to falsify marijuana THC test results – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “Nevertheless, Andy Fias, a lieutenant with the state police’s West Michigan regional drug task force, observed in an email to the Forensic Science Division in January 2015, ‘We are encountering a significant amount of THC wax and oil. If we were to seized [sic] the wax/oil from a card carrying patient or caregiver and it comes back as marijuana, we will not have PC [probable cause] for the arrests.‘.. Citing the documents, The Intercept noted that Fias indicated he had heard that forensic analysts were classifying some found oil as marijuana instead of THC… ‘Is there a way to get this changed?’ he wrote. ‘Our prosecutors are willing to argue that one speck of marijuana does not turn the larger quantity of oil/wax into marijuana.’ ”

And they pay the money,’ the lawmaker said on TV Channel 112 on Tuesday… According to him, ‘almost all major Odessa businessmen pay Saakashvili.’ ”

10 Biggest Wall St. Banks Now Facing Legal Action for Price Fixing $320 Trillion Derivative Market – by Jay Syrmopoulos, ActivistPost.com – “Out of the ten banks named in the lawsuit, nine of the banks own equity stakes in Tradeweb and hold positions on the company’s board and governance committees. The banking consortium used those positions to effectively control Tradeweb and collectively blocked the development of more investor-friendly swaps exchanges by firms such as the CME Group, TrueEX, Javelin Capital Markets, and TeraExchange, according to the suit… According to the lawsuit: ‘During the time period relevant here, Tradeweb board and governance committees… were organized specifically for the purpose of protecting the ‘dealer community’ from the growth of exchange trading.’.. Similar allegations of bank collusion in the market for another type of derivative, known as credit default swaps, have been the subject of investigations by the United States Department of Justice and the European Commission, as well as a separate class-action lawsuit brought by investors, according to Reuters.”

Soros-Poster_ChildProsecutors ban Soros Foundation as ‘threat to Russian national security’ – from RT.com – “Prosecutors launched a probe into the activities of the two organizations – both sponsored by the well-known US financier George Soros – in July this year, after Russian senators approved the so-called “patriotic stop-list” of 12 groups that required immediate attention over their supposed anti-Russian activities. Other groups on the list included the National Endowment for Democracy; the International Republican Institute; the National Democratic Institute; the MacArthur Foundation and Freedom House… In late July, the Russian Justice Ministry recognized the US National Endowment for Democracy as an undesirable group after prosecutors discovered the US NGO had spent millions on attempts to question the legitimacy of Russian elections and tarnish the prestige of national military service.”

According to the prime minister, the incident brought a lack of information sharing between various European intelligence agencies to light. Michel stressed that Europe-wide protocols could prevent future attacks within the EU… ‘If intelligence services were able to share information without fail there might never be another attack,’ he said, stressing that no system has been put in place to regularize these exchanges… The idea of a central European intelligence agency had already been brought up by the European Home Affairs commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, on Friday.”

SanBernShootingDaily Shooter: San Bernardino Evidence of Multi-Agency Drill, Staging Areas, Set-up in Less Than 90 MinutesCurrent coverage from 21stCenturyWire.com “Incredibly, we quickly learned that the same location where this ‘mass shooting’ has taken place, the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino – also stages “Active Shooter” Drills that feature armed response teams… every month. This little known fact surfaced in an LA Times report which interviewed Dorothy Vong, one of the nurses on duty: ‘Drill started,’ Dorothy Vong texted her husband, Mark. It was about 11 a.m. Wednesday… ‘The Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, where Dorothy is a nurse, conducts active-shooter drills every month or so. Vong assumed that’s why she could see heavily armed law enforcement officers sprinting toward the building. She walked to a window and made a cellphone video of the scene. She sent it to her husband.

The UK Parliament’s Decision to Bomb Syria is ILLEGALArguments based on UN resolution 2249 in Prime Minister´s report on airstrikes in Syria: some clarifications needed – by Prof Nicolas Boeglin, GlobalResearch.ca – “UNSC Resolution 2249: a confusing text from legal perspective: Concerning the second argument presented by Prime Minister David Cameron, the content of the Resolution 2249 has been made public since November 13 (Note 2), and assertions made by Prime Minister Cameron require some clarifications… As known, Security Council 2249 (see text ) resolution does not provide any legal basis for airstrikes in Syria. A careful reading of the text shows that Resolution 2249 does not mention Article 42 of the UN Charter, which allows Security Council to authorize States to the use of force, or even Chapter VII generally; nor does use the verb “decide“, used when Security Council adopts a resolution on the use of force.”

gladio-BRussia versus NATO’s Gladio 2.0: Turkish jihad from China to Syria – by Joe Quinn, SOTT.net – “The paramilitary wing of the MHP (today the third largest political party in Turkey) is called the ‘Grey Wolves’. In the 1960s, Turkes established over 100 camps across Turkey where members received ideological and paramilitary training from CIA agents, including one former Nazi SS member. This system was analogous to the hundreds of ‘madrassas’ established with CIA money for the training of jihadi extremists in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Often masquerading as ‘cultural’ or ‘sports’ organizations, the Grey Wolves in Turkey carried out shootings and bombings against left-wing and liberal activists, journalists, judges, Kurds and anyone else who was deemed a threat to US control over Turkey. Over 6,000 people were killed… Working with the CIA-controlled National Intelligence Organization, the Grey Wolves were also involved in several coup d’etats in Turkey and at least one foreign attempted coup in Azerbaijan in 1995. It was immediately after this 1995 coup that Azerbaijan was ‘opened up’ to Western capital and, in the words of investigative journalist Greg Palast, became the ‘Republic of BP’ (British Petroleum). The Grey Wolves also fought against Russian soldiers as proxy forces for NATO in both Chechen wars, and 15,000 ‘Grey Wolves’ fought on the side of Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh War (1988 – 94) against Armenia (another US proxy war designed to provoke Russia).” – Note: This article is a veritable encyclopedia of info on how Al-CIA-duh is now implementing global instability – Highly Recommended!

Putin-We-will-respond-Betrayal‘Allah took their sanity’: Putin accuses Turkish leadership of ‘aiding terror’ – from RT.com – ““We will not forget this aid to terrorists. We have always considered betrayal the worst and most shameful act. Let those in Turkey know it who shot our pilots in the back, who hypocritically tries to justify themselves and their actions and cover up the crimes of terrorists,” he said… Putin said Russia would not resort to saber-rattling to respond to the Turkish actions, but neither would it limit itself to the economic sanctions it imposed since the incident… The incident with the Russian Su-24 bomber shot down by Turkish warplanes near the Turkish-Syrian border has greatly deteriorated relations between the two countries. Turkey insists it acted in response to a brief violation of its airspace and was justified in using lethal force. Russia insists no violation took place and has accused Turkey of supporting terrorists in Syria.”

With US Help, Saudi Arabia Is Obliterating Yemen – by Sharif Abdel Kouddous, GlobalResearch.ca – “Down the hill from the wreckage is an open plot of land with 26 fresh graves lined in neat rows. The white and gold headstones label the dead as martyrs… ‘Why did a wedding become a target?’ asks Alaa Ali al-Sanabani, a relative of the victims who was at the house the night of the attack. ‘We are asking for an independent investigation from an international body.’.. Saudi Arabia has denied responsibility. ‘We did not have any operations there at that time,’ Brig. Gen. Ahmed al-Asiri, the spokesperson for the coalition, told GlobalPost, adding somewhat impossibly that the strike instead came from the local rebel group the Saudis are fighting… There is little rebel presence in Sanaban — no military posts visible in the village, no traces of any ground clashes. Meanwhile, multiple survivors interviewed separately said they heard fighter jets overhead minutes before the attack. Aside from US drones operating sporadically in some parts of the country, the Saudi coalition is the only air power flying above Yemen… ‘The Saudis act with impunity, so it doesn’t matter,’ said Hisham al-Omeisy, a political analyst based in Sanaa. ‘It’s not a big deal that they hit a wedding. Since the beginning of the war they have denied pretty much everything.’ ”

Obama White House: Terrorists Will Stop Attacking if We Pass Gun Control Laws – by Paul Joseph Watson, PrisonPlanet.com – “Reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest: ‘Does the President really think that common sense gun laws would deter terrorists now that he has admitted that these two may have been terrorists?’.. ‘Yes. The president believes that passing common sense gun laws that makes it harder for people with bad intentions to get guns, makes the country safer,’ responded Earnest… ‘But so the president thinks that when there are potentially two terrorists sitting around planning a mass murder they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?’ Doocy shot back… ‘Why wouldn’t we make it harder for them? What’s the explanation for that?’ responded Earnest… The Obama White House is essentially arguing that passing more gun laws which disarm law-abiding citizens will somehow make jihadists, who have access to international terrorist contacts and back-door weapons smuggling rings, less determined and less capable of carrying out massacres.”

Mark_TonerUS rejects Turkey’s involvement in oil trade with Daesh – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘The Turks have been great partners’ in fighting Daesh militants, said US Army Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, at a press briefing in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Wednesday… US State Department spokesman Mark Toner also rejected the Russian claims. ‘We reject, outright, the premise that the Turkish government is in league with ISIL to smuggle oil across its borders. And we frankly see no evidence, none, to support such an accusation.’.. ‘There is no Turkish government complicity in some operation to buy illegal oil from [ISIL],’ he said.” (emph. added)

Greece to defy EU order on labeling settlement goods – Day after Greek PM visits Jerusalem, letter is dispatched to Netanyahu informing him of decision by Athens – by Raphael Ahren, TimeOfIsrael.com – “A day after Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visited Jerusalem, his foreign minister Nikos Kotzias sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, informing him of the opposition by Athens to the EU guidelines, The Times of Israel has learned… According to guidelines published earlier this month by the European Commission, goods manufactured over the pre-1967 lines may not state that they were “Made in Israel.” Rather, they should be labeled with a formulation such as “Product from the West Bank (Israeli settlements),” the Commission suggested… ‘The European Commission expects all member states to comply with EU legislation,’ an official in the union’s delegation to Israel told The Times of Israel last week… Another European country, however, has already declared its intention to defy Brussels’s instructions on labeling: ‘We do not support that decision,’ Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó declared earlier this month at an event of the Israel Council on Foreign Relations. ‘It is an inefficient instrument. It is irrational and does not contribute to a solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict], but causes damage.’ ”

Israel PM admits forces operating in war-hit Syria – by Agence France Presse via News.Yahoo.com – “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted for the first time Tuesday that Israeli forces have been operating in Syria, where the Iran-backed regime is battling rebels including the jihadist Islamic State… ‘We occasionally carry out operations in Syria to prevent that country from becoming a front against us,’ Netanyahu told reporters during a visit to northern Israel… ‘We also do everything to prevent weapons, particularly lethal ones, being moved from Syria to Lebanon,’ he added… Netanyahu did not provide further details and his comments were the first public recognition that Israel has been active in conflict-riddled Syria.”

CDC LogoCDC exposed as private corporation colluding with Big Pharma to defraud American taxpayers: see the evidence – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “The first and most obvious clue that the CDC isn’t what it appears on the surface is the fact that this supposed government agency is listed in the official Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) directory as a for-profit corporation… An investigation by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) found that three key “scientists” who helped develop official swine flu policy for the World Health Organization (WHO), recommending that practically everyone be vaccinated, received cash payments from both Roche and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), two pharmaceutical giants that manufacture swine flu vaccines… These two companies, as reported by The Guardian in 2010, paid off policymakers in multiple countries, including in the U.S. (at the CDC), to write the WHO’s guidelines for swine flu that pushed dangerous swine flu vaccines on millions of people globally. With the help of the CDC and other corrupt agencies, these pharmaceutical corporations pocketed billions of dollars.”

AMA prepares gag order for medical dissenters – from NaturalNews.com – “The American Medical Association’s latest attempt to shore up their medical monopoly could have stiff consequences for practitioners who don’t toe the line… Angered by what they call “quack MDs,” the AMA recently decided to “actively defend the profession.” In particular, it plans to: ‘create ethical guidelines for physicians in the media, write a report on how doctors may be disciplined for violating medical ethics through their press involvement, and release a public statement denouncing the dissemination of dubious medical information through the radio, TV, newspapers, or websites.’ ”

Loretta_LynchObama’s Attorney General Promises to Criminalize Speech – Says “violent” language directed at Muslims unacceptable – by Kurt Nimmo, Infowars.com – “Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday at the Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner she will take aggressive action against the ‘incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric.’.. She told the group ‘we stand with you’ and promised the Justice Department will protect Muslims from “violence” and discrimination… ‘When we talk about the First Amendment we [must] make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American,’ said Lynch. ‘They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted.’.. Lynch did not clarify what ‘actions predicated on violent talk’ means and did not draw a line between constitutionally protected free speech and violence. She also did not pinpoint individuals or groups she believes participate in ‘violent talk.’ “

Erdogan Blackmails NATO Allies – by Mike Whitney, CounterPunch via InformationClearingHouse.info – “The downside is that now Washington finds itself backed against the wall with precious few options that don’t involve a direct confrontation with Moscow. Of course, all of this could have been avoided had the White House been more eager to negotiate a settlement to the conflict months earlier in Vienna. But, instead, the bullheaded Obama team decided to stick with its dreary “Assad must go” mantra which put the kibosh on any long-term agreement or ceasefire proposal. So now, the Russian-led coalition has made significant gains on the ground, retaking numerous key cities, highways and airbases in the west and south while sending US-backed terrorists fleeing eastward towards Raqqa. These developments have forced Washington into a fallback position that will likely entail air-support for Turkish ground forces who will be deployed to Northern Syria to take and hold area sufficient for a “safe zone”, which is an innocuous sounding moniker the media invokes to conceal the fact that Turkey plans to annex sovereign Syrian territory which, by the way, is an act of war.”

Drone_WhistleblowersKiller Drone News Blackout Continues As Mainstream Media Ignore 4 Whistleblowers – by John Hanrahan, ExposeFacts.org – “This time, the major media chose to ignore four former Air Force drone-war personnel who went public with an open letter to President Obama. The letter urged the President to reconsider a program that killed “innocent civilians,” and which ‘only fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like ISIS, while also serving as a fundamental recruiting tool [for extremists] similar to Guantanamo Bay.’.. Now it’s not every day that four former drone operators go public with their anguish-filled stories of the drone program killing innocent people and creating blowback against the United States… In fact, there has not been any day like that. Until now, that has never happened. You would think that this would meet some textbook definition of news — something new, uncommon, dramatic and consequential.”

Eyewitness to terror attack: ‘Three tall white men did it’ – by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub.com – “We now know that ATF investigators recovered police issued firearms from the alleged shooters. This key detail was leaked by 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina during a press interview after she had overheard a newsroom report that doesn’t fit the official narrative… We also know that active shooter drills actually took place near the crime scene just days before and possibly even on the same day of the mass shooting as reported by Mac Slavo… Additionally details from an eyewitness, who came forth on the day of the shooting, may have been overlooked by investigators and suggest that there were actually ‘three white shooters’ instead of the radicalized husband and wife natural-born killer team portrayed in some mainline reports.” Video: Witness describes the San Bernardino shooting – ” Sally Abdelmageed works at the Inland Regional Center and saw the attackers enter the building.

The RealTruth Blog Award for the Best Article on Syria this week goes to: The Empire Strikes Back – Week Nine of the Russian Intervention in Syria – by The Saker, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Political sanctions: here Russia will use one of her most terrifying weapons: the truth. The Russian military presented a devastating series of photos and videos shot by Russian air and space assets proving that Turkey does, indeed, purchase oil from Daesh. What was especially shocking about this evidence is that it showed the truly immense scale of the smuggling: one photo showed 1’722 oil trucks in in Deir Ez-Zor region while another one showed 8’500 oil tankers are used by Daesh to transport up 200’000 barrels of oil. What these figures mean is that not only is this smuggling organized at the level of the Turkish state, but it is also absolutely obvious that the USA knows everything about it… Predictably, the western media made no mention of the actual evidence, it only spoke of “images the Russians claim to show”, but the damage is still done, especially in the long term. Now everybody with a modicum of intelligence knows that Erdogan is a lying crook. More importantly, it has now become undeniable that Turkey is not only an ally, but a patron and sponsor of Daesh. Finally, in the light of this evidence, it also becomes rather obvious why Turkey decided to shoot down the Russian SU-24: because the Russians were bombing the Daesh to Turkey smuggling routes.”

Bilal Erdogan: The Real ISIS Oil Minister – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – ” ‘Bilal Erdogan owns several maritime companies. He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdogan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.’ -William F. Engdahl… Vice President of the Turkish Republican People’s Party (CHP), Gursel Tekin has even stated on record that the oil was being smuggled into to Turkey via BMZ, a shipping company owned by Bilal Erdogan. He stated that ‘President Erdogan claims that according to international transportation conventions there is no legal infraction concerning Bilal’s illicit activities and his son is doing an ordinary business with the registered Japanese companies, but in fact Bilal Erdogan is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.’.. He also said that ‘a family business and president Erdogan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkish banks.’ ”

Britain’s secret ties to governments, firms behind ISIS oil sales – from OsNetDaily.com – “The paper by George Kiourktsoglou, Lecturer in Maritime Security and former Royal Dutch Shell strategist, and Dr Alec Coutroubis, Acting Head at the Faculty of Engineering and Science, attempted to identify suspicious patterns in the illicit oil trade… Their extraordinary study, published by Maritime Security Review in March, examined the international route used by ISIS, based on “a string of trading hubs” comprising the localities of Sanliura, Urfa, Hakkari, Siirt, Batman, Osmaniya, Gaziantep, Sirnak, Adana, Kahramarmaras, Adiyaman and Mardin. ‘The string of trading hubs ends up in Adana [in southeast Turkey], home to the major tanker shipping port of Ceyhan.’.. By comparing spikes in tanker charter rates from Ceyhan with a timeline of ISIS activities, the University of Greenwich analysis identified significant correlations between the two. Whenever the Islamic State fights ‘in the vicinity of an area hosting oil assets, the… exports from Ceyhan promptly spike. This may be attributed to an extra boost given to crude oil smuggling with the aim of immediately generating additional funds.’ “

Turkey-torches_Russian_JetRussian foreign minister calls plane downing ‘planned provocation’ – by Andrew Roth, Hugh Naylor and Brian Murphy, WashingtonPost.com – “The Kremlin sharpened its accusations Wednesday in the wake of Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane, as Moscow’s top diplomat called the incident a “planned provocation” that has dealt a major blow to already fragile relations with NATO… But Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also tamped down speculation of a military response by Russia after the jet broke apart in flames along the Turkish-Syrian border. ‘We’re not going to war against Turkey,’ he said after talks with his Turkish counterpart… Still, Russia moved to strengthen its forces in Syria, saying new anti-missile systems would be deployed at an air base less than 20 miles from the Turkish frontier… ‘We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation,’ Lavrov said after discussions with Turkey’s foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu… Stoltenberg-Lying_LiarRussian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday warned that the “damage will be hard to repair.” Russian officials have raised possible responses such as a ban on Turkish airlines or canceling a proposed gas pipeline between the two countries. ‘We cannot leave what happened without a response,’ added Lavrov… Lavrov said the plane was fired on after ‘making extremely effective strikes on the oil tanker trucks and oil fields.’.. On Russian television, the surviving pilot, Capt. Konstantin Murakhtin, echoed the Russian version of events. Murakhkin claimed that he never left Syrian airspace and did not receive any warnings from the Turkish side… After an emergency NATO meeting Tuesday, the alliance’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, said intelligence reports confirmed Turkey’s version of events and rejected Russia’s claim that its aircraft was flying over Syria and had not crossed into Turkish airspace… ‘The information we have from other allies is consistent with what we have got from Turkey,’ Stoltenberg told reporters in Brussels.” (emph. added)

Russian Defense Ministry Video Proves Su-24 Never Entered Turkish Airspace (w/video)– by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – ” flight data released by Russian Ministry of Defense shows that the Su-24s never entered Turkey, and were attacked while performing legitimate maneuvers over Syria… On Tuesday, Turkish F-16s shot down a Russian Su-24M Fencer bomber. One of the pilots has been confirmed dead by Russian authorities, shot by rebel ground units after ejecting… Russian President Vladimir Putin described the incident as a ‘stab in the back, carried out against us by accomplices of terrorists.’..While authorities in Ankara have insisted that it shot down the Russian Su-24 bomber after the aircraft entered Turkish airspace, the Russian Defense Ministry has released video proving that the plane never left Syrian airspace.”

Konstantin_Murakhtin-Russ_NavigatorTurkish military releases recording of warning to Russian jet – Surviving crew member of downed plane is rescued in 12-hour mission and says there were no warnings – by Shaun Walkerand Kareem Shaheen, TheGuardian.com – “A voice on the Turkish recording can be heard saying “change your heading”. But Konstantin Murakhtin, a navigator who was rescued in a joint operation by Syrian and Russian commandos, told Russian media: ‘There were no warnings, either by radio or visually. There was no contact whatsoever.’.. He also denied entering Turkish airspace. ‘I could see perfectly on the map and on the ground where the border was and where we were. There was no danger of entering Turkey,’ he said… The apparent hardening of both countries’ versions of events came as Russian warplanes carried out heavy raids in Syria’s northern Latakia province, where the plane came down. Tuesday’s incident – the first time a Nato member state has shot down a Russian warplane since the Korean war – risks provoking a clash over the ongoing conflict in Syria, where Russia has intervened… The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, repeated his insistence that the Russian jet was in Turkish airspace when it was shot down and said parts of the wreckage fell into Turkey, injuring two people. Ankara had no wish to escalate the incident and was only defending “our own security and the rights of our brothers” in Syria, he said… In Moscow, a crowd of youths gathered outside the Turkish embassy and threw rocks. Some of the ground-floor windows in the building were broken. Police at the scene did not make arrests, according to witnesses… A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, hit out at the US state department official Mark Toner, who said the Turkmen fighters who shot the Russian airman as he parachuted to the ground could have been acting in self defence. ‘Remember these words, remember them forever. I will never forget them, I promise,’ Zakharova wrote on Facebook.” (emph. added)

White House Gave ISIS 45 Minute Warning Before Bombing Oil Tankers – Why did it take 15 months for the U.S. to target the Islamic State’s oil infrastructure? – by Paul Joseph Watson,PrisonPlanet.com – “While it took the U.S. fifteen months to even begin targeting ISIS’ oil refineries and tankers, air strikes by Moscow destroyed more than 1,000 tankers in a period of just five days… In comparison, Col. Steve Warren said that the U.S. had taken out only 116 tanker trucks, the “first strike” to target ISIS’ lucrative black market oil business, which funds over 50 per cent of the terror group’s activities… U.S. air strikes targeting ISIS oil assets are so rare that PBS was caught using footage of Russian fighter jets bombing an oil storage facility in Syria and passing it off as evidence of the U.S. targeting the Islamic State’s oil infrastructure… U.S. military pilots have also confirmed that they were ordered not to drop 75 per cent of their ordnance on ISIS targets because they could not get clearance from their superiors… $800,000,000 worth of ISIS oil has been sold in Turkey, a supposed U.S. ally. ISIS trucks are routinely allowed to cross back and forth between the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa and Turkey, while the NATO country facilitates black market oil sales on behalf of the terror group… As Nafeez Ahmed documents, a large cache of intelligence recovered from a raid on an ISIS safehouse this summer confirms that ‘direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now ‘undeniable.’ ‘ “

But maybe Putin is like Donald Rumsfeld. You don’t fight the Islamic state with the Syrian leader you want; you fight it with the Syrian leader you have.’.. Just…wow.”

He underscored that outside the town of Zaitan in the province of Idlib a squadron of Su-25 ground attack jets carried out airstrikes against groups of al-Nusra Front militants… ‘The direct hits of Russian air bombs destroyed one tank, two armored vehicles, and three mortar-carrying vehicles. The enemy sustained serious losses in personnel,’ he added… The Russian aviation continued to carry out airstrikes against oil refining facilities of the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorist group in Syria, spokesperson for the Russian Defense Ministry told journalists… ‘On November 24, a Russian Su-34 bomber conducted an airstrike against a motorcade of oil-loading trucks and oil refining and storage facilities near the oil fields in northern and eastern Syria, in the province of Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa,’ he said.”

Russia: ‘No more talk of ‘moderate rebels,’ the gloves are off – Russia says it can prove US backed “moderates” murdered Russian pilot…and America will be held accountable – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – ” ‘If a strike was delivered at those who conducted an operation against terrorists, how else can the actions of that side by described? As those of accomplices of terrorists – unambiguously, there’s no other variant here,’ Zakharova said… (She) pointed out Turkey is using all available methods to protect armed criminals… ‘We assume that Ankara does not care for the fate of civilians but is concerned with the future of those whose faces everybody had a chance to see in a footage distributed by the world media after the Turkish Air Force had downed the Russian jet,’ the Russian diplomat went on to say… ‘The people whom Ankara is trying to protect by using all available methods, some of which are criminal, have got nothing to do with peaceful civilians. We are talking about armed cutthroats who shot a Russian pilot and then mocked at his dead body,’ Zakharova stressed… According to the spokeswoman, Russia is expecting statements from Turkey on what Ankara’s attitude is toward people who mocked the body of a killed Russian pilot… ‘If these are not people Ankara protects, then we are expecting relevant denials from Turkey’s official structures,’ Zakharova said. ‘We are expecting explanations.’.. ‘We have all the data to believe that the US State Department has information on who these people are,” she said. ‘We are waiting for corresponding statements from the US State Department. Who, after all, are these people who danced around the body of the Russian pilot?’ she said.

Turkish_Aid_ConvoyTurks Fuming as Russians Obliterate Their WMD Convoy to ISIS – TOW missiles and Sarin gas supplies for al Qaeda and ISIS destroyed, Turkey may demand reparations – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – “A Turkish convoy, which according to some reports was transporting weapons to terrorist organizations, has been hit by apparent airstrikes in northwestern Syria… Footage released online by the Istanbul-based Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) shows plumes of smoke from the burning trucks and people running about in panic. At least 20 trucks were engulfed in flames – (Note: Murdered Detroit born Serena Shim was investigating IHH for smuggling Sarin gas when she was killed by Turkish intelligence officers on October 19, 2014 – ed) – The mission, however, wasn’t sponsored or organized by the IHH, the group said. No organization has as yet confirmed that the convoy belonged to them… At least seven people were killed and 10 injured in the incident, according to the Turkish Anadolu agency. The trucks were reportedly heading to the town of Azaz in northwestern Syria… Since the news emerged, media has been furiously speculating about who was behind the attack, what the trucks were transporting, what the convoy’s humanitarian mission was, or maybe it was carrying a more sinister load. One of the aid workers who survived the incident said the trucks had been deliberately targeted, Reuters reported… The nature of the ‘humanitarian aid’ is also in question. Turkish media and the IHH say the trucks were transporting humanitarian aid to refugees in Azaz. However, the Turkish Cumhuriyet newspaper cited sources close to the Syrian government saying the convoy was delivering weapons to terrorist organizations.”

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet – by Finian Cunningham, InformationClearingHouse.info – “It is significant that following the incident Turkey immediately called for an emergency NATO summit to confer with the 27 other members of the US-led military alliance. If the shoot-down was simply a random act carried out in the spur of the moment, then why didn’t Ankara get in touch with Moscow to iron things out and express condolences? Instead, as Putin noted, the Turks ran off to NATO without even as much as a call to Moscow… The deadly attack against Russian forces occurred on the same day that French President Francois Hollande met with Barack Obama in Washington to discuss closer military cooperation with Russia in the supposed fight against Islamic State terrorism in Syria… Obama politely, but firmly, rebuffed the French leader’s proposal for a grand coalition that would include Russia. Hollande was waved off with an earful of platitudes. And Turkey’s shooting down of the Russian fighter jet – only hours before Hollande was received at the White House – appears to have been timed in order to emphatically put paid to any idea of working more closely with Moscow to combat terrorism in Syria.”

Cameron-FecklessBritish PM sets out plans for Syrian partition and moves against Russia – by Julie Hyland, WSWS.org – “Extraordinarily, Cameron made no mention of the downing of the Russian jet in either his statement to parliament or his 36-page reply to the select committee report. Instead, the prime minister extolled the virtues of the so-called Vienna Process—talks involving Russia and the US for a “transitional” government of national unity—even as it was being blown out the skies… This is not merely an attempt to avoid certain uncomfortable truths. It is a conscious and wilful deception of the British public as to the advanced dangers of a new world war being prepared by imperialist intrigue… The prime minister’s oral and written presentation heaped one lie upon another. He claimed that the terror attacks in Paris provided a “moral case” for British military action. ‘If we cannot act now, when France has been attacked, when would we act?’ ”

US deploys dozens of ground troops to Syria – from PressTV.ir – “The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday that 30 US soldiers arrived in the northern city of Kobani over the past two days, AFP reported… The troops will allegedly help plan attacks against the Takfiris in the two Syrian cities of Jarablus and Raqqah… Kurdish sources also announced that some 20 US soldiers arrived in Hasakeh province in eastern Syria… A top official told the BBC that this does not indicate a change in US strategy, but an “intensification” of the military campaign… The presence of US troops on the ground in Syria lacks any mandate from the Syrian government. Damascus says it is a violation of its sovereignty.”

Mustafa_Abdulcemil_CemilogluNATO Provokes Russia In Crimea As Syria Tensions Rise – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “After “mysterious” blasts that took place in the Kherson region of Ukraine over the weekend leaving nearly two million citizens without power in the recently annexed Russian territory, the Ukrainian government is now officially halting aid shipments as “activists” inside Crimea are blocking the repair of the power lines… Shortly thereafter, groups of “activists” made up of Crimean Tatars have taken to protest and have blocked the repair crews from restoring power to the areas currently suffering from the outage. The demands of the “activists” are that a tougher line be taken against Moscow. This “tougher line” essentially means doing more to “restore” Crimea to Ukraine and to “take it back” from Russia… This is not the first political act groups of Tatars have committed in this regard. Ever since September, Tatar “activists” have stalked the border between Crimea and mainland Ukraine and have attempted to block commercial trucks from entering the peninsula… On August 1-2, a meeting was convened at the Hotel Billkent in Ankara, Turkey and was labeled the Second World Congress of the Tatars. This meeting brought together over 200 Tatar NGOs and associations from all over the world. The event was also attended by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin and Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus. Both officials participated in the event as well… At the meeting, it was announced by Mustafa Abdulcemil Cemiloglu, acting leader of the Crimean Tatars as decreed by Ukrainian President Poroshenko, the creation of a “Muslim Brigade” to oppose “Crimean separatism,” as well as “human trafficking” and the “transportation of goods near conflict zones.” In other words, the creation of a terrorist brigade to combat Russian involvement in Crimea and pro-Russian sentiment and activism in the area.” (emph. added)

antarctica-ice-w-text-NASAWith Ice Growing at Both Poles, Global Warming Theories Implode – by Alex Newman, NewAmerican.com – “In the United States, meanwhile, as the evidence continues to contradict the alarmist predictions, polls consistently show that a solid majority of Americans reject the UN’s man-made global-warming theories. Like the UN, however, Obama continues to act as if the discredited theories were gospel, promising to save humanity from their carbon sins by lawlessly bypassing the U.S. Senate and the Constitution to foist a planetary “climate” regime on the American people. Lawmakers have vowed to prevent any such schemes, but it remains unclear how far the White House is willing to push the issue. After failing even with a Democrat-controlled Congress, the EPA is already working to impose Obama’s anti-CO2 schemes on America by executive decree… With the evidence discrediting UN global-warming theories literally piling up on both ends of the Earth and everywhere in between, alarmists face an increasingly Herculean task in their bid to shackle humanity to a “climate” regime at next year’s UN summit in Paris. However, to protect the public — and especially the poor — from the devastation such a planetary scheme would entail, Americans must continue to expose the baseless alarmism underpinning what countless scientists now refer to as the “climate scam.” ”

NOAA’s climate change science fiction – The environmental intelligence agency ignores satellite data – by Lamar Smith, WashingtonTimes.com – “Atmospheric satellite data, considered by many to be the most objective, has clearly showed no warming for the past two decades. This fact is well documented, but has been embarrassing for an administration determined to push through costly environmental regulations… Instead, NOAA focused its study on surface temperature monitoring that is often flawed because these sites measure thousands of independent temperature readings and utilize a hodgepodge of different methods that have changed over time. For example, measurements from land-based stations can be skewed because of their location and proximity to surrounding heat-holding asphalt in urban areas… Satellite data, on the other hand, is highly calibrated and provides complete global coverage. For decades, satellites have been used to monitor the earth and collect information. Satellites measure something extremely important — the deep atmosphere. The temperature readings collected by satellites often differ from ground monitoring stations and have consistently shown much smaller rates of warming. Yet NOAA refuses to incorporate satellite data into its monthly projections that are released to the public. Why?”

Pepe EscobarWhy Turkey Stabbed Russia in the Back – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Turkmen villages also sprout north of Idlib province, west of Aleppo, as well as north of Latakia province, west of Idlib. And it’s here where we find a rarely discussed bunch: a gaggle of Turkmen militias… The myth of innocent Turkmen civilians being slaughtered by the “Assad regime” is, well, a myth. In Washington these militias are considered “moderate rebels” – as much as they have merged with all sorts of jihadi or jihadi-gobbled outfits, from the ever pliable construct Free Syrian Army to Jabhat al-Nusra, a.k.a. al-Qaida in Syria (which Vienna finally branded a terrorist group)… The bottom line is that Turkey and Russia simply cannot be part of the same coalition fighting the Islamic State group because their objectives are diametrically opposed… Predictably, Turkish media hails all these Turkmen as “freedom fighters,” a la Ronald Reagan in the 1980s jihad Afghan. Turkish media spins the whole of their territory is controlled by an “innocent” Turkmen opposition, and not the Islamic State group. Not the Islamic State group, yes, but mostly al-Nusra, which is virtually the same thing.”

Putin Accuses Obama Of Leaking Flight Details To Turkey After Russia – by Tyler Durden, InformationClearingHouse.info – “But while the reason behind the S-400 deployment was largely known to most, where Putin’s press conference took an unexpected detour was what he said just around 20:30 in, when in not so many words, Putin effectively accused the US of leaking the coordinates of the Russian plane to Turkey, which was merely a hitman acting with the blessing of the Pentagon… This is what Putin said: ‘We told our US partners in advance where, when at what altitudes our pilots were going to operate. The US-led coalition, which includes Turkey, was aware of the time and place where our planes would operate. And this is exactly where and when we were attacked. Why did we share this information with the Americans? Either they don’t control their allies, or they just pass this information left and right without realizing what the consequences of such actions might be. We will have to have a serious talk with our US partners.’ ”

Salah_AbdeslamDecoding the Paris Attacks: ISIS Blowback or French-Israeli False Flag? – by Brandon Martinez, NonAlignedMedia.com – “More anomalies deserve exploration. A story from the Associated Press titled “‘I have no explanation’: Key suspect in Paris theatre attack was questioned – then released by police” points out a severe oddity that has yet to be explained. The article states that “[h]ours after the synchronized attacks that terrorized Paris, French police questioned and released the suspect who is now the focus of an international manhunt.” The suspect in question, Salah Abdeslam, was said to be “one of three men in a getaway car, headed for France’s border with Belgium, when police pulled them over after daybreak Saturday.” The article continues: ‘The French president had already announced new border controls to prevent the perpetrators from escaping. Hours had passed since investigators identified Abdelslam as the renter of a Volkswagen Polo that carried hostage-takers to the Paris theatre where almost three-quarters of the 129 victims were killed. It’s not clear why the local French police, known as gendarmes, didn’t take Abdeslam into custody. They checked his identification, but it’s not known whether they had been informed of his apparent connection to the attacks.’ ”

US urges Turkey to close off its Syrian border to ISIS – from RT.com – “The Obama administration is urging Turkey to ensure Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria receives no supplies through the Turkish border, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing sources in Washington. The request involves sealing off part of the frontier between the western Turkish town of Kilis and Jarabulus in eastern Syrian… ‘The game has changed. Enough is enough! The border needs to be sealed,’ the WSJ cited a senior Obama administration official as saying in a message from the US government to Turkey. ‘This is an international threat, and it’s all coming out of Syria and it’s coming through Turkish territory.’.. ‘Turkey is determined to clean Daesh (Arabic acronym for Islamic State) from the 98 kilometers of border between Kilis and Jarabulus,’ a senior Turkish government official said as cited by the WSJ. ‘There is no need to receive any kind of warning or advice from anyone, including our US partners.’.. ‘Just closing down the border would not be enough to solve our problems and would not address Turkey’s demands,’ a Turkish official said.” – Note: If you really believe that Turkey will seal off their border to movement of fighters and supplies into Syria, I have some swampland in Florida you may be interested in.

NATO’s Terror Convoys Halted at Syrian Border – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Obviously, any nation truly interested in defeating ISIS would attack it at its very source – its supply lines. Military weaponry may have changed over the centuries, but military strategy, particularly identifying and severing an enemy’s supply lines is a tried and true method of achieving victory in any conflict… Russia, therefore, would find these convoys a natural target and would attempt to hit them as close to the Syrian-Turkish border as possible, to negate any chance the supplies would successfully reach ISIS’ hands. Russian President Vladmir Putin noted, regarding the Azaz convoy in particular, that if the convoy was legitimately carrying aid, it would have been declared, and its activities made known to all nations operating military aircraft in the region… The trucks hit in the recent airstrikes, just as they were during the DW investigation, were carrying concrete and steel, not “milk and diapers” as the West would lead audiences to believe. That the supplies were passing through a “rebel” controlled crossing means that the supplies were surely headed to “rebel” controlled territory – either Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front in the west, or ISIS in the east… Russian airstrikes insured that the supplies reached neither.”

US-Turkey Edging Up to Syrian Border – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Increasing pressure from Washington on Ankara appears directly proportional not to America’s will to defeat ISIS, but the to the necessity of addressing growing public awareness that indeed, ISIS is being supported from beyond Syria’s borders by certain state sponsors and not from within Syria itself… That coincidentally the same number of troops needed to invade and occupy northern Syria have been called up to line the Turkish-Syria border to “secure it” is likely not a coincidence at all. In all likelihood, the West would like to attempt to make an incursion into Syria under the guise of having been provoked at the border, and then “needing” to cross over into Syria to pursue the provocateurs… The United States and Turkey, with their ambush of a Russian Su-24 over Syria, have proven just how far the West is willing to go to get an advantage, even superficially, over Russia, even if it means resorting to extreme treachery. Another “power move” wrung from this impending “border operation” seems all but inevitable.”

Gearóid_Ó_ColmáinVideo: Globalist Racketeering: Gearóid Ó Colmáin Reveals the Deep State Agenda Behind the Paris Attacks – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “Sometimes, ‘saying the unsayable’ can be very unpopular in mainstream public discourse, but when events come to a head – and governments partner international racketeering syndicates to carrying out terrorist attacks against their own people – then it’s time to give the truth the platform it deserves… Gearóid Ó Colmáin is a writer and political analyst based in Paris. In this recent interview segment with RT International, he reveals a number of uncomfortable truths about this week’s alleged “ISIS Attacks” in Paris that have seemingly plunged Europe and North America into a pit of mass hysteria, Islamophobia, forced migration, war-hawking, rampant political opportunism and intellectual terrorism…”

NOAA climate feud: Pursuit of scientific truth vs. public accountability – by Lisa Rein, WashingtonPost.com – “The flash point in the feud between House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is a congressional subpoena. The congressman, a prominent global warming skeptic, is demanding that the government turn over its scientists’ internal exchanges and communications with NOAA’s top political appointees… Smith believes this information, showing the researchers’ deliberative process, will prove that they altered data to fit President Obama’s climate agenda when they refuted claims in a peer-reviewed study in the journal Science that global warming had “paused” or slowed over the last decade… ‘These are government employees who changed data to show more climate change,’ the chairman said in a statement to The Washington Post. ‘Americans deserve to understand why this decision was made. Despite what some critics claim, the subpoena is not only about scientists. Political operatives and other NOAA employees likely played a large role in approving NOAA’s decision to adjust data that allegedly refutes the hiatus in warming.’ ”

U.S., Turkey Joint Operation Designed To Save ISIS, Not Destroy It – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “On November 7, Webster Tarpley and the Tax Wall Street party wrote in their Daily Briefing that “Resistance to this urgently needed policy will inevitably come from Erdogan of Turkey.” Tarpley and the TWSP cited a report by Aaron Stein of War on the Rocks, which stated: ‘Turkey has made one thing very clear: It will not tolerate a YPG presence west of the Euphrates, and will therefore not accept a Kurdish-led offensive on the ISIS-held city of Jarablus, or any YPG-led effort to unite its territory with the Kurdish-controlled enclave in Efrin in northwestern Syria. In the days before the election, the Turkish military fired upon YPG forces trying to cross the Euphrates, ostensibly to shore up their front line with the Islamic State.’.. Turkey has long feared the creation of a Kurdistan in Northern Syria, particularly because the creation of such an entity would not only inflame the tensions between the Turkish Kurds and the Turkish government but would essentially carve out a good portion of Turkish territory. With the establishment of a Kurdistan virtually anywhere in the region but especially on the Turkish border or in Turkey itself, Erdogan’s foolish dreams of being the new Ottoman emperor will fade away.”

HIGH ALERT: Paris Climate Change Summit To Be Cancelled Or Thwarted? – An Open Letter to the World Community of Nations – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “No one disputes that there have been radical alterations of weather patterns around the world. Nor would anyone disagree with the observation that climate trends have experienced dramatic changes. Truly, the atmospheric conditions of planet Earth have entered a period of great flux and unpredictability. However, the most obvious causes are steadfastly avoided by those in positions of power and influence… Global Climate Change: Geoengineering Threatens The Entire Planetary Civilization… Because of this intensifying planetary predicament We the People strongly feel that it is high time to get it right. Failure to do so may push the Earth past critical points of no return which will then be felt by all future generations. When the very integrity of the biosphere is at stake, it is clear that the fate of the planet hangs in the balance, as does the future of humanity.”

COP21-EiffelCOP 21: UN Plan to Make Legally Binding Climate Change Laws – Worldwide – by Makia Freeman, ActivistPost.com – “The more you look, the more you find dissenters from all over the Earth who are speaking out against the highly politicized AGW climate change movement as COP 21 approaches. Unfortunately for the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the UN, the IPCC and all their stooges and mouthpieces, the UN has failed to achieve consensus (one of its favorite buzzwords) on climate change, and the science is settled only in one way – showing that the world is not really warming at all, and that man’s contribution to climate change is insignificant. There are a plethora of dissenting individuals, scientists and organizations with massive research behind them showing that AGW is a political movement to usher in global governance: – NIPCC: The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change is an international panel of nongovernment scientists and scholars who have come together to understand the causes and consequences of climate change. They published the 2009 report Climate Change Reconsidered which they claim “is the most comprehensive critique of the IPCC’s positions ever published. It lists 35 contributors and reviewers from 14 countries and presents in an appendix the names of 31,478 American scientists who have signed a petition saying ‘there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate’.”; – 1000+ dissenting scientists: as of 2010, there were more than 1000 international scientists (up from 700) who came out and publicly went on the record to state that AGW is a flawed model. The list includes many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC”

Obama_SignsPresidential Executive Orders Challenged by the Courts – by Catherine Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “An interesting turn of legal events has rained on President Obama’s Executive Orders parade recently when the U.S. Fifth Circuit of Appeals blocked a series of Presidential Executive Orders regarding immigration on Friday, November 6th!.. In a two-to-one vote in Texas v. United States, President Obama came out on the short end of the stick, but promises an appeal, which I find equally interesting insofar as it’s been adjudicated that his actions on immigration have been ruled unconstitutional. [1] So, what’s to appeal; isn’t the U.S. Constitution the framework of our democratic republic? He’s not king or dictator—yet—or is he?.. This issue validates the rationale for Presidential Executive Orders to be nullified and voided because, in essence, they make One-Man Dictatorial Rule, which is not what the USA form of government is; what we vote for; or should be according to our founding documents, including the USA NOT becoming a One World Order domain.”

Hidden Cameras Being Used to Measure and Manipulate Political Views Around the World – by Nicholas West, ActivistPost.com – “As if the passive collection of this type of data would not be concerning enough, there are indications that it will go further into an area that decidedly can be called mind control. The Times reveals that the above-mentioned 2012 Mexico campaign of Enrique Peña Nieto not only used biometric data collection methods as part of their political election strategy, but does so for actual governance: ‘In my government, we have utilized a variety of research tools and opinion studies to evaluate the efficacy of our governmental programs, communications and messages,’ said Francisco Olvera Ruiz, the governor of the Mexican state of Hidalgo and a governing party member. ‘Neuroscience research,’ he added, is ‘especially valuable because it has allowed us to discover with more precision and objectivity what people think, perceive and feel.’ ”

Feds Used Monsanto-Funded Studies to Decide Monsanto’s Weed Killer Is Safe – by Jason Best, TakePart.com – ” ‘As a longtime Monsanto scientist who has spent my career studying the health and safety of pesticides, including glyphosate, I was happy to see that the safety profile of one of our products was upheld by an independent regulatory agency,’ Steve Levine, a senior science fellow at Monsanto, crowed on the company blog… The italics are mine. But heck, I thought I might as well just give them to Levine, because it becomes almost embarrassingly obvious that’s what he wants. He practically goes overboard in trying to sell you on the EPA’s objectivity—not only emphasizing the agency’s “independence” but calling its review “comprehensive” (twice) as well as “rigorous” and “science-based.”.. And yet… It doesn’t take more than five minutes poking around on Google or WorldCat to begin turning up fairly recent studies in peer-reviewed scientific journals that include sentences like ‘a growing body of knowledge suggests the predominance of endocrine disrupting mechanisms caused by environmentally relevant levels of exposure’ to glyphosate-based herbicides. So how can the EPA be so certain glyphosate isn’t an endocrine disruptor?.. Because, it seems, Monsanto and other chemical companies said so.”

Monsanto Crops Decimated by Pests – Meanwhile, Nearby Non-GMO Crops Thriving – by Justin Gardner, NaturalBlaze.com – “As a result of the whiteflies’ decimating Punjab’s GM cotton crops this year, at least 15 farmers committed suicide. And yes, it was Monsanto crops that were decimated… ‘Curiously, the crop in the adjoining field, and another in the vicinity, showed far less whitefly infestation. In fact, in the adjoining field, farmer Yadvender Singh had sprayed no chemical pesticides at all. Instead, he had used biofertilisers and other non-chemical formulations. Yadvender’s field is expected to yield 800 kg of cotton per acre compared to 300 kg that Manjeet would hope to harvest. In the other plot, a non-Bt variety of cotton too was far less affected by whitefly… ‘Yadvender’s field, where chemical pesticides were not used, showed spider webs on the plants. These are natural predators of whitefly. In fields where pesticide is heavily sprayed, these are decimated leaving the whitefly to flourish.’ ”

Democrats launch McCarthyist witchhunt against researchers questioning climate change agenda – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by Watchdog.org, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, is among a small group of Democrats who are demanding that colleges and universities turn over grants, congressional testimony and other activities from a group of professors and scientists who have testified at congressional climate hearings… The group, adds The College Fix, is being targeted because they don’t buy into the argument that climate change and global warming is occurring as a result of man-made activities.”

Israeli-jet-flag-traceIsrael Attacks Syria Near Damascus Airport: Reports – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “At this time, it remains unclear what the target of the attacks might have been – Syrian military installations, weapons depots, civilians/civilian infrastructure, or something else entirely. It also remains to be confirmed than an attack actually took place… There have been no immediate comments from the Syrian government as of this time… There is also the distinct possibility that this attack never actually took place since this writer could find no actual mention of the “Syrian media reports” cited in the flurry of international press accounts at the time of the writing of this article. Indeed, the “Syrian media reports” cited actually come from Israeli media who have cited only a ‘Facebook page associated with the regime.’.. Two weeks ago, Israel reportedly struck a “weapons convoy” in Syria, alleging that the convoy was destined to arm Hezbollah.”

Are We Training Cops to Be Hyper-Aggressive ‘Warriors’? – from RINF.com – “Thanks in large part to pressure brought by Black Lives Matter activists, some police experts are calling for a complete overhaul in the way cops are trained, both as cadets and during the “in-service” training they receive over the course of their careers. There are no national standards for training police, and the amount and quality of their instruction varies from agency to agency. But a survey of 280 police departments conducted by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a Washington, DC–based think tank, found that American cops are given extensive preparation for using violence, and very little guidance on how to avoid it.”

Lindsey_Graham-FuryHouse Moves to Authorize Invasion of Syria and Iraq – by Kurt Nimmo, GovtSlaves.info – “A bipartisan group of thirty-five Democrats and Republicans sent a letter to Ryan calling for the vote… ‘We do not share the same policy prescriptions for U.S. military engagement in the region, but we do share the belief that it is past time for the Congress to fulfill its obligations under the Constitution and vote on an AUMF that clearly delineates the authority and limits, if any, on U.S. military engagement in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region,’ the group wrote in a letter sent to the Speaker on Friday… A call for a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) arose on November 4 when House members, primarily Democrats, argued the president lacks the constitutional authority to send special operations forces to Syria… The Obama administration argues it has the authority to send troops under the 2001 AUMF designed to respond to the Sept. 11 attacks… Republicans, led by South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, believe a new AUMF is not required.”

Syrian_Army-Kuweires__US-Turkey Invasion Derailed by Syrian Army Triumph at Kuweires – by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch.org – “Erdogan needed the landslide victory to consolidate his power in Parliament and to persuade the military brass that he has a mandate to carry out his foreign policy. Obama’s phone call was intended to pave the way for backroom negotiations which would take place during next week’s G-20 meetings in Ankara. But now that the Russian-led coalition has retaken Kuweires, it is impossible to know how the US and Turkey will proceed. If Putin’s warplanes and artillery are able to seal the border, then Washington will have to scrap its plan for seizing the 60-miles stretch of northern Syria that’s needed to keep vital supplylines to US-backed jihadis open or to provide sanctuary for mercenaries returning from the frontlines. The changing battlescape will make a safe zone impossible to defend… The fact is, Kuweires changes everything. ISIS is on the run, the myriad other terrorist organizations are progressively losing ground, Assad is safe in Damascus, the borders will soon be protected, and the US-Turkey plan to invade has effectively been derailed. Barring some extraordinary, unforeseeable catastrophe that could reverse the course of events; it looks like the Russian-led coalition will eventually achieve its objectives and win the war.”

Iraqi Forces Find Turkish Weapons, Explosives at ISIL Hideouts – from english.FarsNews.com – “Meanwhile, al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces thwarted two attacks by ISIL terrorists on positions of the Iraqi forces in al-Fatha area, North of Tikrit, and the area of al-Sad /5/, West of Tikrit, the capital of Salahuddin province. The clashes lasted for hours and inflicted heavy losses on the terrorists… In Anbar, the Iraqi forces found dozens of barrels of Ammonium nitrate which turn into high explosives after mixing it with some materials… A military source said the barrels carried “Made in Turkey” labels and dated back to 2 months before the date of the seizure… The forces also found Turkish-made weapons, munitions and rockets in several areas in the provinces of Diyala and Salahuddin and in areas on the outskirts of the capital, Baghdad, during the liberation of those areas of the ISIL terrorists… Turkey has repeatedly claimed that it has no ties with ISIL and labels it as a “terrorist group”.”

Squatting-a-bargainWith the Economy in Shambles, More Americans Turn to Squatting – by Mac Slavo, ActivistPost.com – “An entry on Wiki-How entices tells squatters how to ‘take a whole house from someone if you’re willing to take the risk.’.. It points out the best areas to squat and even advises to spruce up the home to throw off suspicious neighbors… It reads like squatters are terrorist cells distributing training manuals to take over or strike an attack… The weird lopsided report demonizes squatters as “arrogant” criminals who will be busted for their crimes, interviewing law enforcement about how to watch for and catch these “crooks.” It encourages residents in the community to spy on their neighbors, turn on suspected squatters and report potential signs of squatting to the police… Yet the story never attempts to address the point about why there are so many squatters in the first place. Not a mention of the wasteland that has driven millions of Americans into poverty. Not a single high-level banker jailed.”

Congress proposes a chilling resolution on Social Security – from SovereignMan.com – “In the 2015 report of the Social Security and Medicare Board of Trustees they state very plainly: ‘Social Security as a whole as well as Medicare cannot sustain projected long-run program costs…’, and that the government should be ‘giving the public adequate time to prepare.’.. Wow… Now, we always hear politicians say that ‘Social Security is going to be just fine’. So this Board of Trustees must be a bunch of wackos. Who are these guys anyhow?.. The Treasury Secretary of the United States of America, as it turns out. Along with the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The Secretary of Labor. Etc… These are the folks who sign their name to the report saying that Social Security is going bust, and that Congress needs to give people time to prepare… And prepare they should.”

Monsanto tells Mexican honey farmers: Don’t blame our soya seeds for your crop issues – from Reuters via RawStory.com – “Mexico’s Supreme Court on Wednesday blocked a move to allow the planting of genetically modified soya seeds in the southern Mexican states of Campeche and Yucatan, arguing that indigenous communities that had fought the move should be consulted before it was approved… Honey producers in the two states as well as the neighboring state of Quintana Roo had protested against the genetically modified soybean permits, arguing they created a contamination risks for their produce… Monsanto, which was on the court docket’s list of interested parties in the case, said in a statement Wednesday it respected the court’s decision and would wait to see the full text of the ruling… On Friday, in response to questions from Reuters, Monsanto denied any link between its soybean seeds and honey production woes… ‘We do not accept accusations that put us as responsible for deforestation and illegal logging in the municipality of Hopelchén, Campeche, or any place of the Republic, because our work is rigidly attached to the guidelines provided by law,’ the company said in a statement.”

Oil-Something_StrangeSomething Very Strange Is Taking Place Off The Coast Of Galveston, TX – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “As a result of all this, something very unusual going on off the coast of Galveston, where more than 39 crude tankers w/ combined cargo capacity of 28.4 million bbls wait near Galveston (Galveston is area where tankers can anchor before taking cargoes to refineries at Houston and other nearby plants), vessel tracking data compiled by Bloomberg show, which compares w/ 30 vessels, 21 million bbls of capacity in May. Vessels wait avg of 5 days, compared w/ 3 days May…As AP puts it,a traffic jam of oil tankers is the latest sign of an unyielding global supply glut.”

Claim: Russia “Accidentally” Aired “Secret Nuclear Weapon Plans” on National TV (Oops) – by Melissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “One large document contained drawings of a new submarine-launched nuclear torpedo Russia is calling Status-6. The system includes nuclear subs that carry huge, self-propelled underwater long-range torpedo-shaped drones that can, according to the documents, travel 5,400 miles and create extensive, uninhabitable ‘zones of radioactive contamination.’.. Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent military analyst, claimed, ‘The plan is to deliver a 100-megaton nuclear bomb to the U.S. shores. It would cause a highly radioactive tsunami.’.. AP reported: ‘…it would be hard to imagine cameramen of state TV stations doing a close up on any documents on the table during a Kremlin meeting on military issues. Most saw the incident as a deliberate leak intended to warn Washington and its allies that Russia is working on a new devastating weapon that would tip the scales in case of conflict.’ ”

Parisians_rallyCONFIRMED: French Government Knew Extremists BEFORE Attack – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “In the coming hours and days, the French government and its various co-conspirators in their proxy war against Syria will propose a plan of action they claim will stem the terrorist threat France and the rest of Europe faces. But the reality is, the problem is not something the French government can solve, because the problem is clearly the French government itself… With the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) emerging as being behind the attack, the question that remains is, who is behind ISIS itself? While the West has attempted to maintain the terrorist organization possesses almost mythological abilities, capable of sustaining combat operations against Syria, Iraq, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, support from Iran, and now the Russian military – all while carrying out large-scale, high-profile terrorist attacks across the globe – it is clear that ISIS is the recipient of immense multinational state-sponsorship… Just last week, Syrian forces reestablished firm control over the Kweyris military airport, which was under siege for years. The airport is just 20 miles from the Euphrates, and, as Syrian forces backed by Russian airpower work their way up toward the Turkish border along the Syrian coast, constitutes a unified front that will essentially cut off ISIS deeper inside Syria for good… Should ISIS’ supply lines be cut in the north, the organization’s otherwise inexplicable fighting capacity will atrophy. The window for the West’s “regime change” opportunity is quickly closing, and perhaps in a last ditch effort, France has jammed the spilled blood and broken bodies of its own citizens beneath the window to prevent it from closing for good.”

Grandmaster Putin Beats Uncle Sam at His Own Game – by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch.org – “So while some people might think that it was smarter for Obama to use a proxy-army in Syria instead of US soldiers, morally or legally speaking, there’s really no difference between what he did and what Bush did in Iraq. A US invasion is a US invasion. Period. It doesn’t matter if you use for-hire killers or your own guys. It’s all the same. Obama is just as guilty as Bush… Why does it matter?.. It matters because Obama’s Syrian policy has resulted in the deaths of 250,000 people and created 11 million refugees. That’s more refugees than Iraq. And the funny thing is, the media doesn’t even talk about it, in fact, there’s not one major media outlet in the entire country that has stated what everyone knows to be the obvious truth; that the United States is 100 percent responsible for the refugee crisis. 100 percent! Assad had nothing to do with it. US policy and our buck-passing president are entirely to blame… The point is, the Democrats pursue the same policies as the GOP with some minor-tweaking at the edges. So if the hard-charging, but dimwitted Republicans decide to drag the country to war on a pack of lies, then the shifty Dems will try to be smarter about it; they’ll try to micromanage the public relations, preempt antiwar marches in US cities and avoid US casualties at all cost. Obama has succeeded in all of these things. There’s nobody in the streets protesting, the media has convinced most people that Syria is in the throes of a civil war, and there have been no flag-draped coffins returning to Andover Airbase because their are no US boots on the ground. For all practical purposes, the Democrats have created our first completely invisible war. That’s quite an accomplishment, don’t you think?”

Tyler_Durden-RedGet Ready For Crazy – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “If this premise is correct, we can predict a period of increased looting by governments in general. We already know that the leading jurisdictions of the First World are in serious economic trouble and are instituting draconian measures at home in order to grab what they can from their citizens on their way down. In addition, they’re spreading their reach throughout the world under the auspices of organisations like the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development to loot assets in other countries under the pretence that they constitute “the good guys,” whilst the rest of the world constitutes, “the bad guys.”.. The real truth, of course, is that “the good guys” are in no way better than the rest of the world; they merely have more power and, at least for the present, have the ability to presume their good guy status through force… By extension, we can anticipate that, as the Great Unravelling progresses, we shall see actions being taken by governments and financial institutions worldwide that we’ve never seen in our lifetimes. An aggressive action taken by one entity will cause a knee-jerk reaction by the target entity and, in some cases, chain reactions will occur. In addition, as in Honduras, we shall see preemptive aggressive actions taken in the belief that another entity may move first. Along the way, a sense of what is morally right will lose its importance. In its place, we shall see a “Nice guys finish last,” ethic come to the fore.”

Federal Reserve Admits It Has NO IDEA What It’s Doing – by WashingtonsBlog.com – “Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is stressing the need to review the unconventional monetary policies that central banks around the world deployed in response to the 2008 global financial crisis… She said Thursday that the post-crisis period offers policymakers an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of the tools and better understand the impact of new regulation… ‘Policymakers have to carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages of alternative monetary implementation frameworks in the presence of new policy tools,’ Yellen said in remarks at a two-day research conference sponsored by the Fed… Translation: We have no idea what’s going on, or whether or policies are helping or making things worse.”

Amherst Students Threaten “Civil Disobedience” if President Doesn’t Eliminate “Free Speech” – by Paul Joseph Watson, PrisonPlanet.com – “The demands were issued in support of the “Stand with Mizzou” movement which stoked controversy earlier this week after a professor called for “muscle” to silence the First Amendment of a reporter attempting to cover the story… The list, attributed to a group calling itself ‘Amherst Uprising’, was handed to President Biddy Martin following a “sit in” which took place yesterday and subsequently published by the Amherst Soul website… Unless action is initiated within 24-48 hours, the students warn they, ‘will organize and respond in a radical manner, through civil disobedience.’.. One of the demands is that, ‘President Martin must issue a statement to the Amherst College community at large that states we do not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the “All Lives Matter” posters, and the “Free Speech” posters that stated that ‘in memoriam of the true victim of the Missouri Protests: Free Speech.’.. In other words, free speech, if it counters the narrative being pushed by ‘Amherst Uprising’ – will not be tolerated.”

Truckin-fer-BrokeTruckers’ Pensions Cut By Half – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “There are two lines of argument here. The retirees can argue that their former employers and/or their current pension funds have a moral obligation to pay whatever was promised, no matter what… On the other hand, there is the reality-based argument that “What can’t be paid, won’t be paid.” If previous employers and/or current pension funds are already bankrupt or nearly broke, court orders compelling them to pay the impossible will have no effect other than to bankrupt and destroy whichever firms or funds are deemed liable to make good on the pensions. In the end, before the courts rule on who is liable to pay pension and how they’re liable to pay, they’ll have to first ask: 1) Are the retirees better off with 50% (or less) of whatever was promised?; and 2) Are retirees better off demanding 100% of what was promised and thereby bankrupting the pension funds, and getting nothing?.. Result? The nation is going to hell. Its wealth is disappearing. We might soon become a Third World Nation–and almost no one will understand why… How could this be happening? It’s happening because We the People have been the “greatest fools” the world has ever seen. We’ve trusted our political leaders and the Federal Reserve. Our trust has been betrayed. We’ve ignored our express constitutional mandate that only gold or silver can be used as a “tender in Payment of Debts”. Our ignorance will be rewarded with poverty… Result? Soon, almost all of us are going to feel the pain currently felt by some retired truck drivers.(emph. added)

12 Days Before ’08 Crash, Congress was Secretly Told to Sell Off Their Stocks – by John Vibes, TheFreeThoughProject.com – “In an interview during the 60 minutes investigation, Peter Schweizer of the Hoover Institute told Steve Kroft that ‘It’s really the way the rules have been defined. And the people who make the rules are the political class in Washington and they’ve conveniently written them in such a way that they don’t apply to themselves.’.. ‘These meetings were so sensitive– that they would actually confiscate cell phones and Blackberries going into those meetings. What we know is that those meetings were held one day and literally the next day Congressman Bachus would engage in buying stock options based on apocalyptic briefings he had the day before from the Fed chairman and treasury secretary. I mean, talk about a stock tip,’ he added.”

NASA Shock Study: Antarctica Is Growing Not Shrinking – by James Delingpole, Breitbart.com – “Among those alarmists trying to put a brave face on the shocking news is the report’s lead author Jay Zwally. Like so many of his colleagues at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS), Zwally has fought heroically over the years to promote the climate change scare narrative – and he’s not about to give up now… ‘I know some of the climate deniers will jump on this, and say this means we don’t have to worry as much as some people have been making out,’ he says. ‘It should not take away from the concern about climate warming.’ As global temperatures rise, Antarctica is expected to contribute more to sea-level rise, though when exactly that effect will kick in, and to what extent, remains unclear.”

Putin: “There is no global warming, a fraud to restrain the industrial development countries” – by Andrey Kuzmin, RedIceCreations.com – “Marianna Poberezhskaya, author of the academic work “Communicating Climate Change in Russia”, characterized media coverage in Russia as “climate silence”, broken only by the airing of official doubts about any human impact on global temperatures… ‘Russian mass media repeat the same mistake that Western journalists used to make: the false balance, where the idea of the human effect on climate change is presented along with skeptics’ point of view,’ she said. Russian school teaching also appears to lag behind the rapidly expanding science on climate change… Randomly sampled geography textbooks make no mention of human impact on the climate, and one college-level text states that climate changes are caused mainly by solar activity, the movement of the planet’s crust and volcanoes.” (emph. added)

Chem-Air-TestMonumental Air Test Planned to Examine Geoengineering – from WP.CoalitionAgainstGeoengineering.org – “PRNewswire/— Potentially the most difficult environmental test in history is about to take place. World renowned scientist Dr. J. Marvin Herndon, along with two volunteer environmentalists from the National Crime Scene Cleanup Association (NCSCA), are setting out to find conclusive evidence about the existence of “chem trails”. Award Winning Director/Producer Michael J. Murphy will be documenting this incredible feat… The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be granting waivers to allow two pilots to surpass the current Guinness altitude record in a powered para gliding aircraft of 24,898 feet. With State of the art air monitoring equipment, the two pilots will be flying into the chem trails at around 30,000 feet above sea level, battling winds in excess of 100 miles per hour and temperatures around -70 degrees Fahrenheit. The two pilots will be collecting air samples and data never before seen… ‘It is truly a privilege to be a part of such an epic environmental study, all while breaking Guinness world records for both speed and height in a powered para glider.’ says Pilot Enzo Pagani. ‘This is what I live for!’ “

Top General Admitting That Obama Knowingly Armed ISIS! How Is This Not Blatant Treason? – from MakeWarHistory.co.uk – “HASAN: You are basically saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?.. FLYNN: I think the administration… HASAN: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?.. FLYNN: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision… HASAN: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?.. FLYNN: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.”

Swat-Raid-fuzzyCongress Fails to Comprehend Criminal Cop Assaults – by Michael Winter, ActivistPost.com – “A new report from the Congressional Research Service, which the government doesn’t really want you to see, has been made available to Congress and through the Federation of American Scientists web site at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R44256.pdf… The report shows that Congressional researchers are deeply out of touch with the issue of cell phone and other readily available types of cameras and how it impacts the citizenry, and have failed to comprehend the full extent or the seriousness of the issue as it relates to police brutality, or even that it has become a national crisis… While there are many good cops who do a great job, the reality is that an increasing number of law enforcement officers have become criminals themselves and now pose a serious threat to public safety and liberty. In many states the public has every reason to fear the police. In some cities in the USA, criminal behavior has become institutionalized at every level of government.”

Saakashvili-Kezerashvili-ConspiratorsUkrainian Wikileaks: McCain and Saakashvili are plotting to shoot down American plane in Syria to blame Russia [transcript] – from FortRuss.blogspot.co.uk – “(Mikhail Saakashvili): ‘So, the whole group will be in Latakia, in the Al-Nusra zone, the goal is to shoot down American plane. They will get flight information, there is a local Kurd there for that. The plan is turning out very cool! American plane will be shot down by Russian military. This will be told by the Prisoner, that the target was shot down from PZRK. The scene will be amusing, the whole world will talk about it… ‘After this group will go to Hasaka, it is a city near the Kurds and there they will destroy a Kurdish village, the Russians will do everything. In return, the Kurds will shoot down a Russian plane with Stingers. The goal is to pit the Americans and Russians in Syria. The Turks will be grateful, they promise to rouse the Crimean Tatars… ‘After it is done in Syria, you will see, if Americans don’t bring troops to Ukraine and all our projects will begin operating. McCain is waiting for our actions. Otherwise, Obama will not raise his ass, elections are coming soon and he will do nothing. You see, Poroshenko also began to wag his tail in front of Putin.’ “

Syria: 35% of Terrorists “Dead or Fled” – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – ” ‘The Takfiri terrorists have lost over 65 percent of their commanders and over 60 percent of their arms and ammunition depots as well as over 50 percent of their command and control centers,’ the Syrian military expert added… ‘Russian air group’s aircraft in Syria have conducted 71 sorties and hit 118 terrorist targets in Idlib, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus and Lattakia in the past 24 hours,’ the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman said… ‘As you see, the number of sorties has grown due to the increased amount of intelligence data on terrorist infrastructure targets confirmed via various channels,’ Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.”

White_Helmets-1Syria’s White Helmets: War by Way of Deception – Part I – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “In a paper entitled, Foreign Aid and Regime Change: A Role for Donor Intent, written just prior to NATO intervention in Libya, Prof. Sarah Blodgett Bormeo describes the “democratization” process for target nations. Unwittingly or wittingly, Bormeo perfectly outlines the role played by NGOs in this process. Bormeo even goes so far as to pinpoint the lack of impartiality rife among NGOs large and small, the majority of whom, receive their funding directly from western government and major corporation sources – all of whom have a vested interest in the outcome of their NGO’s activities and ‘intervention’ in a particular location. Bormeo emphasises the importance of “picking winners” in this scenario, as opposed to respecting and supporting the will of the people in any sovereign nation.”

Part II – Syria’s White Helmets: War By Way of Deception ~ ‘Moderate Executioners’ – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The NGO ‘soft power complex’ is now one of the most destructive global forces. It is employed as an interface between civilians of a target nation, with government, economic or military structures of the colonialist force intent on harnessing any given nation’s resources or undermining its geopolitical influence. The Democratization process, or the path to regime change is facilitated by these undercover government or corporate proxy employees who, once embedded into a society, set about producing the propaganda that will justify intervention, either economically, politically or militarily. NGO propaganda will often employ slick social media marketing which is underpinned by advance applied behavioural psychology and advanced NLP-based ‘social enterprise’ sales pitches.”

Should We Celebrate Carbon Dioxide? – by Patrick Moore PhD, TheGWPF.org – “Let’s begin with our knowledge of the long-term history of the Earth’s temperature and of CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere. Our best inference from various proxies back indicate that CO2 was higher for the first 4 billion years of Earth’s history than it has been since the Cambrian Period until today. I will focus on the past 540 million years since modern life forms evolved. It is glaringly obvious that temperature and CO2 are in an inverse correlation at least as often as they are in any semblance of correlation. Two clear examples of reverse correlation occurred 150 million years and 50 million years ago. At the end of the Jurassic temperature fell dramatically while CO2 spiked. During the Eocene Thermal Maximum, temperature was likely higher than any time in the past 550 million years while CO2 had been on a downward track for 100 million years. This evidence alone sufficient to warrant deep speculation of any claimed lock-step causal relationship between CO2 and temperature.”

Christiania_FigueresParis climate deal will not include global carbon price, says UN climate chief – from Reuters via TheGuardian.com – “Big multinational companies and investors, and most recently oil majors, have called for a global carbon price to help spur investments in low-carbon energy… A global carbon price would help to create an incentive for operators of power plants and factories to switch to cleaner fuels such as gas or to buy more energy-efficient equipment… When the European Union launched a carbon trading scheme in 2005 there were expectations this would eventually lead to a global carbon scheme by 2020 worth around $2 trillion… But the difficulties of bringing together different carbon schemes from countries around the world means the goal of a global carbon price remains elusive… ‘[Many have said] we need a carbon price and [investment] would be so much easier with a carbon price, but life is much more complex than that,’ Figueres told a climate investor event in London.”

JOINT STATEMENT Final declaration on the results of the Syria Talks in Vienna as agreed by participants – from ClaysBeach.blogspot.com – “Meeting in Vienna, on October 30, 2015, China, Egypt, the EU, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United Nations, and the United States [“the participants”] came together to discuss the grave situation in Syria and how to bring about an end to the violence as soon as possible… The participants had a frank and constructive discussion, covering major issues. While substantial differences remain among the participants, they reached a mutual understanding on the following… “

Edgar_CayceIn 1932 Edgar Cayce Predicted Putin’s Role in Stopping WW3 – by Buck Rogers, ShiftFrequency.com – “Many of Cayce’s psychic readings occurred in the early part of the 20th century during two World Wars and the Great Depression, but before his death in 1947 he had already seen many of his predictions come true, including foretelling of the stock market crash of 1929, foreseeing events related to both World Wars, and even the warning of the untimely deaths of two American presidents… In a series of what he called ‘World Affairs Readings,’ Cayce made many remarkable statements about the future of world finance, world leadership, collective spirituality, and interestingly the role that somehow Russia was to play as a force of right in the coming global turmoil that we see unfolding before our eyes today.”

Anti-Israel Activism Criminalized in the Land of Charlie Hebdo and “Free Speech” – by Glenn Greenwald, TheIntercept.com – “Israel defenders love to equate “criticism of Israel” with “anti-Semitism” and then sanctimoniously deny that anyone does that. But criminalizing BDS advocacy — threatening people with large fines and prison terms for protesting the polices of the Israel government — is as clear of a case as it gets. As Haaretz put it, ‘The dragnet has also swept up BDS protesters whose actions have targeted Israel, not Jews.’.. Ponder how pernicious this is. It is perfectly legal to advocate sanctions against Iran, or Russia, or Sudan, or virtually any other country. Indeed, sanctions and boycotts against those countries are not only frequently advocated in the West but are official policy. But it is illegal — criminal — to advocate boycotts and sanctions against one country: Israel. It requires sky-high levels of authoritarianism, even fascism, to abuse the criminal law to outlaw advocacy of policies and activism when it involves one country, and one country only.”

SyriaMap_oct2015-wapoUS Invasion of Syria Begins – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “While the US claims this move is to “defeat the Islamic State (ISIS),” it is instead clearly a move to establish long-sought “buffer zones” or “safe zones” in Syria where the Syrian government can no longer operate. US airpower will also undoubtedly be used to cover these special forces, creating a de facto no-fly-zone wherever they operate… The map accompanying the Washington Post article clearly shows ISIS territory straddling the last remaining supply corridor being used to supply the terror group as well as others including Al Qaeda’s al Nusra Front from NATO-member Turkey’s territory. US special forces will likely begin operating in these areas, and zones carved out as US operations expand.”

MSNBC Apologizes After Accidentally Telling the Truth About Israel – by Kit O’Connell, TheDailySheeple.com – “…some media critics, and especially the Israeli media, criticized the segment, calling the graphic inaccurate. The Jerusalem Post referred to the image, which closely resembled a similar graphic widely circulated among activists, as ‘a map commonly used by Palestinian propaganda groups,’ adding: ‘It claimed that in 1946, present-day Israel was under Palestinian rule, leaving out the fact that it was under British Mandatory rule until May 14, 1948, when the British Mandate came to an end… Another mistake came in the 1947 map which the graphic referred to as the ‘UN plan.’ This was inaccurate for the fact that the supposed 1947 borders never existed, since the UN’s partition plan was rejected by all Arab countries.’ – On Oct. 19, MSNBC aired an apology in which Snow called the maps “not factually accurate.” Fletcher also appeared and acknowledged that although there was no internationally recognized country called “Palestine” in 1947, twice as many Arabs as Jews lived in the region at that time.”

Bratton-Concern_UnfoundedNYPD now blasting citizens with X-ray radiation to search vehicles without a warrant – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by the New York Post, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton is resisting calls by the New York Civil Liberties Union and the public to provide details regarding the department’s super-secret X-ray vans… In recent days, the top cop in the city was questioned about the counterterrorism vehicles, which are called Z Backscatter Vans, following the NYCLU’s request to file an amicus brief in court arguing that the department ought to be forced to release details about the vans, the way they are deployed and how the NYPD uses them… ‘They’re not used to scan people for weapons,’ Bratton told reporters. ‘The devices we have, the vehicles if you will, are all used lawfully and if the ACLU and others don’t think that’s the case, we’ll see them in court — where they’ll lose! At this time and the nature of what’s going on in the world, that concern of theirs is unfounded.’ ”

Shell walks away from Ukraine shale gas project – from RT.com – ” ‘Shell withdrew after announcing it was no longer interested in the project six months ago. There was a long procedure of backing out of the agreement due to force majeure circumstances,’ the minister was cited as saying by Ukraine’s daily Business… Ukraine is seeking new investors in the project, which could be profitable in the long-term, according to Demchishin, adding that: ‘The company Nadra Yuzivska will be liquidated if we don’t find new investors by the end of the year.’.. In June, Shell announced it was negotiating its withdrawal from the project due to low oil and gas prices. At the time, media reported that the Anglo-Dutch multinational suspended operations in Eastern Ukraine over fears for the safety of its personnel.”

US-Spec_Forces-HelicopterUS Gov’t Semantics To Aid In Deploying Ground Troops To Syria – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “These troops will be a further step in the direction of direct US military involvement in Syria of the open war variety. These troops will also be sitting ducks and potential “collateral damage” from Russian airstrikes actually aimed at ISIS/jihadist fighters and a potential spark for the powder keg of propaganda that would be launched in the event of Russia “killing our troops.”.. Of course, the responsibility for the lives of the soldiers would be squarely on the backs of the imperialists who committed them to yet another theatre of intended destruction and oppression. The United States and NATO has created, armed, trained, funded, and directed terrorists for the purposes of overthrowing Bashar al-Assad. The U.S./NATO then engaged in a bombing campaign against Syrian civilian infrastructure under the guise of “bombing ISIS” targets while Turkey and Israel constantly chipped away at the Syrian military. All of this was accomplished against the wishes of the Syrian government or the Syrian people.”

Google and YouTube now engaging in wholesale censorship of content they don’t want the public to see – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “Google, and its popular video sharing platform YouTube, are quickly becoming purveyors of propaganda, censoring material that could expose and question the status quo. These popular internet platforms are following in the footsteps of oppressive government regimes that punish whistle blowers and go after anyone who asks questions, seeks answers and reports on the most atrocious abuses of the day… Recent “changes” at YouTube now allow their technocratic management to remove monetization from videos they don’t want people to hear or see. Independent media source, All News Pipeline, has had to appeal eight videos that were stripped of monetization for censorship reasons… We are Change also revealed how they were being censored in March 2015. “In the last few days we noticed our YouTube numbers take a massive down turn while the majority of our new videos and top videos have been demonetized with no explanation at all.”

Over 1,000 Daesh militant backups arrive in Yemen’s Aden to fight Ansarullah – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘Hundreds of armed militants who came from other provinces of Yemen and from abroad started their training in the Salah al-Din camp in Aden,’ an unnamed Yemeni security source told Russia’s Sputnik news agency on Wednesday… The Yemeni source said that the exact number of the reinforcements is not yet known but approximately between 1,500 to 2,000 militants have come to the southern port city to fight alongside the terror group… He added that during the past few days a number of airplanes with hundreds of militants aboard had landed at the city’s airport ‘under condition of high secrecy and reinforced security.’.. On Tuesday, the spokesman of the Syrian Armed Forces, Brigadier General Ali Mayhoub, said that two planes from Turkey, one from the United Arab Emirates, and another from Qatar had transported 500 Daesh terrorists fleeing from Syria to an airport in Aden.”

Michel_Chossudovsky“Boots on the Ground” Inside Syria? The Pentagon Comes to the Rescue of the “Islamic State” (ISIS) – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca – “International diplomacy has collapsed. US foreign policy makers are ignorant and corrupt, unaware of the implications of their actions… The US led air raids are being implemented simultaneously with those of Russia… Stalemate at the UN. The UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon (appointed by Washington ) supports the US led war under a humanitarian banner… These various actions and threats by the US led coalition –not to mention the chatter pertaining to a “World War III option” in the corridors of the US Congress– point to a scenario of military escalation, which could potentially lead to direct military confrontation between the US led coalition and the Russian Federation.

Analyst Calls for Obama to Enter Into a “Devil’s Bargain” with ISIS in Syria – State Department has announced it will step up support of jihadis – by Kurt Nimmo, PrisonPlanet.com – “The analysis authored by former US military intelligence officer Thomas Buonomo states so-called moderate rebels in Syria have been ‘effectively compelled to enter into a devil’s bargain with the radical Islamists in order to have any chance of accomplishing their overriding goal’ of overthrowing the “irredeemable dictator Bashar al-Assad.”.. Buonomo states that mercenaries who have not joined the jihadists ‘are by now either dead, have withdrawn from the battlefield, or are hoping they will not be killed as a result of the indecisive geopolitical calculations of their American patrons.’.. ‘Taking these risks [Russian intervention] into consideration, the Obama administration should increase its military aid to the moderate rebel factions in order to pressure Putin to jettison Assad,” Buonomo writes… Over the weekend the State Department announced it will step up support of jihadi groups fighting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria… ‘They pledged to continue and intensify support to the moderate Syrian opposition while the political track is being pursued,’ the State Department statement said… There are virtually no “moderate” proxy forces in Syria and the war against al-Assad is waged almost entirely by radical Sunni Salafist groups determined to establish a principality ruled by Shari’a law in Syria.” (emph. added)

Stephen_LendmanIsraeli Forces Invade Palestinian Hospitals – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “Heavily armed Israeli soldiers and undercover agents storm Palestinian hospitals often – endangering staff, terrorizing and arresting patients, seizing records for names of others to abduct… Human rights workers denounce the practice. So does Palestinian Health Minister Dr. Jawad Awwad, explaining ‘(i)nternational law prohibits attacking hospitals and abducting patients. It also calls for enabling medical crews to act freely and safely, to perform their humanitarian mission.’.. Jerusalem’s Al-Makassed Islamic Charitable Hospital is a frequent target, the latest incursion coming on Wednesday after a Tuesday assault… Each time, heavily armed soldiers surrounded the hospital, blocking anyone from entering or exiting, then storming the facility – where they don’t belong for any reason… Hospital head Dr. Rafiq al-Husseini said staff were ordered to hand over patients’ records, including reasons for admittance. Israel wants information on inpatients and other released. Frequent arrests follow, including abducting the sick and wounded from hospital beds, a gross international law violation.”

T-Shirt-Gang_RelatedStudent Accused of Promoting Gang Culture for Wearing American Flag Shirt – by Mikael Thalen, PrisonPlanet.com – “Cole’s mother, Lori Carpenter, says she first became aware of the issue after Cole came home with his shirt on inside-out… ‘I asked him why,’ Carpenter told Fox40. ‘He said he was ‘dress coded’ at school because the stars were gang related.’.. According to Marysville Joint Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Ramiro Carreon, the shirt was flagged for containing colors and designs known to the local gang task force… ‘The red star on the Bear Flag, which represents the Lone Star flag flown above Monterey in 1836 during Juan Alvarado’s revolt against the Mexican government, is also used by the Norteño criminal street gang,’ Martin said. ‘Red is the gang’s color, the five points of the star represent ‘1+4’ and the 14th letter of the alphabet is ‘N.’.. ‘Inside the red star on Cole’s shirt, the number 31 is visible. The 31 on the shirt represents that California is the 31st state, but in gang iconography, 31 is the inverse of 13, which is used by the Sureño gang.’ ”

Tony_Cartalucci-captionMultipolarism Solves Syria at the Source – US End Game in Syria is Just the Beginning for Wider Regional War – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Reuters recently published an op-ed titled, ‘Syria’s one hope may be as dim as Bosnia’s once was,’ which argues that the only way the US can cooperate with Russia regarding Syria is if all players agree to a weakened, fragmented Syria… If this scheme sounds familiar, that is because this op-ed was authored by Michael O’Hanlon, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution – a corporate-financier funded think-tank that has in part helped engineer the chaos now consuming the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). O’Hanlon previously published a paper titled, ‘Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war,’ in which he also calls for the division and destruction of Syria… In it, O’Hanlon calls for the establishment of “safe zones,” the invasion and occupation of Syrian territory by US, European, and Persian Gulf special forces, the relaxing of criteria used to openly fund what would essentially be terrorists operating in Syria, and openly making the ousting of the Syrian government a priority on par with the alleged US fight against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL).”

Kilmuckridge locals reclaim ‘repossessed’ supermarket – Co Wexford community protest and accuse security firm acting for Deloitte of trespass – by Tim O’Brien, IrishTimes.com – “According to the supermarket operator, Corrigan’s Londis in Kilmuckridge was taken over in the early hours of October 5th by men wearing balaclavas who forced their way into the premises and changed the locks… Hugh Corrigan, who lives near the business, was awoken by the property’s alarm system that rang in his home. Using an Ipad connected to the property’s CCTV, he was able to see the men entering the premises… Mr Corrigan immediately called the gardaí, but said he was told they had been warned in advance the action was a repossession, not a burglary… Following this protest, KTech security once more returned on Monday and began to remove stock from the Londis… However, after a large crowd assembled and gardaí arrived, KTech’s Kevin McGarry withdrew his staff and locals reclaimed the supermarket for Mr Corrigan.” (emph. added)

One_World-Many_HandsMoving Toward A One World Government, A One World Economy And A One World Religion – by Michael Snyder – “We are steamrolling toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion… Of course we will not get there overnight. It is going to take some time, and there are going to be quite a few bumps along the way. In fact, I believe that our planet will experience an extreme amount of chaos before we actually get there… But every major crisis will be used as an excuse to advance this agenda. Virtually every solution that the elite offer us will involve more globalization and more centralization. We will be told that all of our problems will be solved if humanity will just come together in unity… For some, the goal of a “united planet” where we are all working together to eradicate things like poverty, war and disease makes all the sense in the world… For others, a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion would simply mean setting the stage for ‘one world tyranny.’ ”

Everyone wrote off the Syrian army. Take another look now – All this is only the beginning of Mr Putin’s adventure in the Middle East – by Robert Fisk, Independent.co.uk – “Then along came Vladimir Putin with his air and missile fleets and suddenly the whole place is transformed. While we huffed and puffed that the Russians were bombing the “moderate” rebels – moderates who had earlier ceased to exist according to America’s top generals – we’ve been paying no attention to the military offensive which the Syrians themselves are now staging against the Nusra Front fighters around Aleppo and in the valley of the Orontes… Syrian commanders are now setting the coordinates for almost every Russian air strike. They were originally giving between 200 and 400 coordinates a night. Now the figure sometimes reaches 800. Not that the Russians are going after every map reference, of course. The Syrians have found that the Russians do not want to fire at targets in built-up areas; they intend to leave burning hospitals and dead wedding parties to the Americans in Afghanistan. This policy could always change, of course. No air force bombs countries without killing civilians. Nor without crossing other people’s frontiers.”

Putin-WeeklyPutin is Defeating More than ISIS in Syria – by F. William Engdahl – Journal-NEO.org – “Russia’s Putin is playing the role ever so elegantly, even gracefully, of the small boy in the Hans Christian Anderson classic fairy tale from 1837, The Emperor’s New Clothes. The boy stands with his mother amid thousands of other villagers in the crowd outside the vain Emperor’s palace balcony, where the disassociated king struts around the balcony naked, thinking he is wearing a magnificent new suit of clothes. The boy shouts, to the embarrassment of all servile citizens who pretend his clothes are magnificent, ‘Mother, look the Emperor has no clothes!’.. What do I mean? In the first four days of precision bombing of select sites in Syria Russian advanced fighter jets firing Kh-29L air-to-surface laser-guided missiles that strike targets with a precision less than two meters, managed to destroy key ISIS command centers, munitions depots and vital infrastructure… What the successful Russian precision airstrikes have done is expose in all its ugly nakedness the Emperor’s New Clothes. For more than one year, the Obama Administration claims it has committed the most awesome airpower on the planet allegedly to destroy ISIS, which has been described as a ‘ragtag band of militants running around the desert in basketball shoes.’.. Curiously, until last week, ISIS has only expanded its web of power in Syria and Iraq under US bombings. Now, within 72 hours, the Russian military, launching only 60 bombing runs in 72 hours, hitting more than 50 ISIS targets, has brought the ISIS combatants into what the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman described as a state of “panic” where more than 600 have deserted. And, according to Moscow, the fight is only beginning, expected, they say to last three to four months.”

6 Ways to Show the World is in Cognitive Dissonance – by Paul Philips, ActivistPost.com – “Given that the mainstream media acts as a vehicle for so much propaganda, lies and deception and the vast majority blindly accept what it says, paying scant attention to the contradictory evidence, this leads many into a state of cognitive dissonance when challenged with the truth while defending the mainstream media’s official version… With the masses not getting the big ‘hey wait a minute’ moment of realization accepting things that are in truth majorly not right, here are my 6 ways of showing that the world is therefore in a state of cognitive dissonance or even denial.”

Daily_SheeplePharma Giant Funded their Own Study Claiming Drug Was Safe for Kids — It was Actually Deadly – by Jay Syrmopoulos, TheDailySheeple.com – “Big pharma heavy-hitter GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) illegally influenced doctors to prescribe the antidepressant drug paroxetine (sold under the brand name Paxil) to teenagers and kids for years even though it was not FDA approved for use in adolescents… Not to be discouraged by pesky laws, GSK began a focused marketing blitz aimed at doctors, which was a huge success with over 2 million Paxil prescriptions being written for kids in 2002 alone… So why did doctors write over 2 million Paxil prescriptions for children when the drug was not even approved by the FDA for use in kids?.. GlaxoSmithKine actually funded a research study that was published in 2001, known as Study 329, which claimed to show that the drug was “well tolerated and effective” in children… A subsequent study, not funded by the pharmaceutical company, had drastically different conclusions…”

A Complete Meltdown In November: Cyclical Analyst Says Stocks May Start To Crash This Week – from TheDailySheeple.com – “Cyclical analyst Bo Polny of Gold 2020 Forecast utilizes advanced mathematical formulas and years of cyclical analysis to make forecasts about global stock markets. In late July he noted that U.S. stock markets had hit a top and that investors should prepare for a rapid down-move in the Dow Jones and other indexes. As we now know, that prediction has come to pass.”

OffGridWorldColorado county criminalizes self-reliance: Off-grid living punished like a crime – by Daniel Barker, NaturalNews.com – “In fact, in many places, off-grid living has been all but criminalized. Take, for instance, Costilla County, Colorado, one of the least populated counties in the state and an area where hundreds of people have been purchasing land and attempting to successfully live off-grid. Off-grid homesteaders are facing harassment from county authorities who make things difficult for anyone who dares to pursue a self-reliant lifestyle… The situation there has become so tense that there have recently been confrontations between authorities and off-grid landowners as the county attempts to essentially criminalize their lifestyle… The county is now proposing new land use regulations that will require electricity, water and sewer systems to be installed before landowners can obtain a building permit.” – Can we please say Agenda 21?

Former Prominent CIA Officer Shares Details Of The Government’s All Out War Against Whistleblowers With GeoengineeringWatch.org – by Kevin Shipp and Dane Wigington – “This secrecy agreement was originally designed to protect legitimate classified information, to protect military personnel during wartime and protect legitimate national defense information and technology… However, because of the binding power of the agreement, government agencies began using it as a powerful tool to silence federal employees who question the legality of certain government operations. It was the perfect tool to threaten, silence or jail any whistle blower who dared to challenge the secret operations of government… Today, the secrecy agreement is routinely used as an efficient weapon to intimidate or silence employees. Annual refresher briefings are given to remind employees of the penalties for violating the agreement. These penalties include huge fines, termination, financial ruin and even prison – all of which mean the destruction of their lives and their families. Most will not reveal any wrongdoing, no matter how egregious, for fear of calculated, severe retribution.”

Boom-SyriaSyrian jihadists feud & bomb each other over funds as Russian jets destroy supply lines – from RT.com – ” Russian attack jets have hit 51 Islamic State targets in Syria in the past 24 hours, including four command posts, six arms depots, a mortar battery, two underground bunkers, 32 field camps and six outposts… The strikes took place in the Latakia, Aleppo, Hama and Damascus provinces… The damage the Russian SU-34 jets caused to the underground bunkers was especially significant, Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said… They hit the terrorists’ underground infrastructure in Homs, which had allowed the militants to move undetected and increase their effectiveness in combat… The well-funded Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has been hiding whole weapons caches underground, which included explosive devices for carrying out terrorist attacks… A small missile factory was among the objects destroyed. However, these underground bases and conduits are believed to be widespread across Syria, so more work needs to be done, Konashenkov says… A frontline supply junction for transporting fuel, arms and food supply lines was also hit in the Damascus province.”

Russian president creating chaos in Syria by bombing terrorists: Clinton – from PressTV.ir – “US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has accused the Russian president of creating chaos in Syria by bombing terrorists there… Clinton made the comments during the first Democratic presidential debate of this year held on Tuesday in Las Vegas, Nevada… The former secretary of state said that she’d had some success dealing with former Russian President Dmitry Medvedov… But then Vladimir Putin again became president of Russia, she added, and ‘that did change the relationship.’.. ‘We have to stand up to his bullying, and specifically in Syria, it is important — and I applaud the administration because they are engaged in talks right now with the Russians to make it clear that they’ve got to be part of the solution to try to end that bloody conflict,’ she said.”

Lavrov: Show Us Your Fake “Free Syrian Army” – Russia is willing to coordinate with the “phantom” group, but nobody can seem to find them; except maybe on CNN – from TASS via Russia-Insider.com – ” ‘No one has told us where the Free Syrian Army operates or where and how the other units of the moderate opposition act,’ Lavrov said… ‘We will even be ready to establish contact with it, if these are indeed efficient armed groups of the patriotic opposition that consist of Syrians,’ the foreign minister added… So far, the Free Syrian Army remains a “phantom group,” he said. ‘Nothing is known about it,’ Lavrov said… Lavrov said he has asked US Secretary of State John Kerry to provide information on this group and its leadership… Last week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said ‘there is absolutely controversial information about this so-called army.’ – ‘What is Free Syrian Army? Is this an official term? Are they official armed forces or what is it,’ Peskov said.”

al-Baghdadi-ElliotReport: US, Turkish Intelligence Coordinated ISIL Leader’s Transfer to Turkey for Treatment – from english.FarsNews.com – “ISIL Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been transferred to Turkey for treatment through a series of coordination measures by the CIA after the notorious terrorist leader was severely injured in the Iraqi army’s airstrike on his convoy in Western Anbar province, media reports disclosed on Wednesday… ‘The CIA has drone coordination with the Turkish intelligence organization to transfer al-Baghdadi to Turkey,’ the Arabic-language al-Manar TV quoted unnamed sources as saying on Wednesday… The source said that two companions of al-Baghdadi who were also injured in the attack on the ISIL leader’s convoy and were captured by the Iraqi forces have confirmed that al-Baghdadi has been injured in the Sunday attack… A military statement by the Iraqi Army announced on Sunday that the Iraqi air force had bombed the convoy of al-Baghdadi while he was heading to Al-Karable to attend a meeting with ISIL commanders.”

Rise of the Nanobots – The World of Molecular Machines – by Nicholas West, TechSwarm.com – “One of the more controversial concepts in the area of nanotech is what has come to be known as The Singularity. Essentially, it is the mission to transcend biology. There are many ways The Singularity could ultimately come about, but one of them is molecular control via nanobots… Ray Kurzweil has written about nanobot medicine in terms of imagining Human Body 2.0, which will be a continuously modified and upgraded internal system that will optimize nutrition, repair damage and, ultimately, lead perhaps to immortality… Naturally, there are many ethical considerations that are hopefully debated along the way (note: like when?), but the rise of nanobots is not a conspiracy, nor can it be passed off as merely wishful thinking by those who desire to live forever… The following video from the American Chemical Society and the University of Nebraska posits a decidedly upbeat future where not only the human body is modified, but nearly everything we would interact with.” (emph. added)

David_Stockman-of-OMBWhy The Mania Is Getting Scary—-Central Bankers Are Running A Doomsday Machine – by David Stockman, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “If you need evidence that we are in the midst of a lunatic financial mania, just consider this summary from a Marketwatch commentator as to why markets are ripping higher this morning: ‘The dovish comments from both Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen and People’s Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan are giving markets a big lift, and in the absence of negative data or news, I imagine this will continue to buoy the markets throughout the session,” Erlam said in emailed comments… ‘Yellen said gradual hikes are likely this year, but that the central bank will move cautiously……. the PBOC governor said he saw “more room” for China to ease policy if the economy stays soft and inflation continues to weaken.’.. Its just that frightfully simple. If any of the major central banks anywhere on the planet ease or even hint they might, the robo machines and day traders unleash an avalanche of buy orders and the stock averages jerk higher.”

Turkish PM Davutoglu tries to distance Daesh and Turkey, ends up saying they’re actually exactly the same – from Albawaba.com – “In what can only be described as a comical yet tragic error, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu made a major mistake when describing the difference between Daesh’s Islamic theology and that of Turkey earlier this week… In an interview on Wednesday night with Turkish channel Show TV, the Turkish official attempted to distance Turkey from the group allegedly responsible for last week’s Ankara bombings, but instead accidentally suggested Daesh and Turkey hold the same religious views, saying: ‘There is a 360-degree, not 180-degree, difference between the Islam we defend and what Daesh has on its mind.’ – The gaffe comes after widespread criticism of alleged mishandling of intelligence by the Turkish government, which may have prevented the bombings at a peace rally which claimed 99 lives.”

Thomas_DrakeUS global assassination campaign kills numerous unreported civilians – from PressTV.ir – “(whistleblower) Thomas Drake told the Sputnik news agency on Thursday that America’s mass assassination program – that has mostly stayed in the dark over the years – has led to an untold number of civilian casualties… ‘We [the United States] have mass surveillance and we have a mass assassination program,’ Drake said. ‘It is two sides of the same coin.’.. On Wednesday, a new series of secret documents related to the US military’s “kill-capture” program were revealed by The Intercept… Based on the documents, the US military has conducted a 14-year-long program targeting high-value individuals that has led to the death of few terrorists and far more number of innocent civilians… ‘But it all gets lost in the sheer scope and scale of who’s dying at the other end,’ Drake added. ‘It’s an extraordinary tragedy… I call it the entrails of empire.’ ”

Geoengineering Cover Up Revealed in Lost 1978 Government Report – by Phillip Schneider, WakingTimes.com – “Just under 750 pages, the document from May of 1978 illustrates just how large the geoengineering, weather-modification cover-up really is. The beginning of the document reads as follows: ‘The Federal Government has been involved for over 30 years in a number of aspects of weather modification, through activities of both the Congress and the executive branch. Since 1947, weather modification bills pertaining to research support, operations, policy studies, regulations, liabilities, activity reporting, establishment of panels and committees, and international concerns have been introduced in the Congress. There have been hearings on many of these proposed measures, and oversight hearings have also been conducted on pertinent ongoing programs.’.. Although the document clearly states that the Federal Government has been involved in activities that involve weather modification, the general public is still largely unaware that this is even going on. Many still adamantly oppose the idea that this is even possible. If Congress has known about this since at least 1978, why is the public still so clueless about weather modification?”

Tsipras-applaudedGreece approves fresh austerity measures – from PressTV.ir – “In the early hours of Saturday, a majority of 154 lawmakers, out of a total of 300, supported the bill that entails further tax increases, pension cuts, and tougher fines for tax evasion… After a stormy debate between Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s leftist Syriza party — backed by its coalition partner, the nationalist Independent Greeks (Anel) — and the entire opposition, 140 votes were counted against the bill in the single-chamber parliament… Tsipras says the reforms are “not new.” ‘You already knew them when you voted in favor of the July 13 (debt) accord’ with the European Union, he replied to lawmakers from all six opposition parties who had fiercely criticized the toughness of the reforms.”

US Takes Warmongering to Next Level With Missile Defense Test in Europe? – from SputnikNews.com – “Four US warships along forces from eight other nations will take part in the first missile defense exercise in Europe, the Stars and Stripes newspaper reported, citing unnamed sources in the US 6th Fleet… The collective missile defense system, which has both seaborne and land-based components, is still under development to counter the overhyped yet non-existent missile threat from Iran… The participating troops from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK and the US will be tasked with intercepting an unarmed ballistic missile and an anti-ship projectile fired simultaneously from different locations… The war-games are aimed at improving coordination when dealing with multiple incoming missiles in what is often referred to as integrated air and missile defense.” – Wow, all of that “coordination” for the interception of 2 missiles? What about when there are a few dozen?

al_Sisi-Cant_refuseFarcical Egyptian Parliamentary Elections Underway – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “Elections underway are farcical by any standard, proceeding in two phases for 596 parliamentary seats (568 elected ones, the others Sisi-appointed) on October 18 and 19 in 14 governorates, then in 13 remaining ones on November 22 and 23… Run-offs will be held in districts with no clear winner. Final results are expected in December… Junta supporting candidates alone are participating. Legitimate regime opponents risk imprisonment or execution, one way or another excluded from the political process… Sisi urged Egyptians to “(l)ine up in front of polling stations and plant with your votes the hope for a bright tomorrow for our new Egypt” – impossible with him in charge. Despotism isn’t democracy… Junta power rules ruthlessly. Fundamental freedoms don’t exist. Tens of thousands of regime opponents languish in gulag hell – guilty of challenging tyranny… Journalist Khaled Dawoud said ‘(t)here are no big issues being discussed…(I)t’s not an election of ideas. (Candidates) are competing over who will be’ Sisi stooges.”

Russia Destroys The Greater Israel Dream – by Taxi, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The ‘dream destroyed’ being the current unspoken reality, Israel is left with no expedient and transforming choices. It cannot go to direct war with a more powerful Russia and win back domination over Levant skies and waters. It couldn’t even defeat Hezbollah who lack any form of Air Power back in 2006. And more frustratingly for Israel, it cannot blackmail, coerce or buy President Putin either. Moreover, presently under the leadership of Obama, it is clear that America is not prepared to go to direct war with any nation, let alone Russia, on behalf of Israel. The current architects of expansionist Zionism are at a complete and utter loss to recognize all these chokehold factors – blood is draining from their faces. No more meetings over what Arab country to genocide next so as to steal more land and resources, the issue now is not when and how the Zionist dream can be finally fulfilled, but how to safely bring the corpse-dream back from the dead without anyone noticing.”

Inexplicable Moon Anomalies Reveal Deception About Outer Space (with Video)– by Makia Freeman, WakingTimes.com – “Moon anomalies are nothing new, there are many people, including mainstream Western scientists, who have pointed out numerous highly strange and irregular things about the moon. A few years ago David Icke brought the book Who Built The Moon? by Chris Knight and Alan Butler to attention, and concluded that the moon is an unnatural object that has been placed there for some reason – possibly as a broadcasting station. Icke further linked the moon to Saturn, and theorized that the “Matrix” in which we live is actually a program originally broadcast by Saturn and amplified by the moon. He called it the Saturn-Moon-Matrix… Now, with consumer technology rapidly advancing all the time, there are many people pointing their video cameras up at the night sky … with incredible results. More confirmation that all is not as it seems in outer space is the most visually fascinating of the latest moon anomalies: the lunar wave.”

Scientists develop GMO polio viruses to inject into children as profit-generating cancer treatment – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “This all sounds good, except for the fact that the plan is to inject this GMO virus directly into children’s brains. It’s unclear from the available literature exactly how long the researchers tested the PVS-RIPO before declaring it to be safe, but nearly every GMO currently on the market was only tested for a maximum of 90 days by its manufacturer prior to gaining approval… ‘PVS-RIPO is infused directly into a patients’ tumor (e.g. in the brain),’ say developers. ‘This assures that the maximal amount of virus is delivered directly to the tumor.’.. And while the Duke press release originally stated that ‘there have been no toxic side effects with PVS-RIPO whatsoever’ (this has since been removed without explanation), an earlier release by the Cancer Network that contains more thorough clinical trial data suggests otherwise. According to Phase I trial data, adverse events associated with PVS-RIPO include hemiparesis (paralysis), intracranial hemorrhage at catheter removal, lymphopenia (abnormally low lymphocyte levels in the blood), seizure, hyperglycemia, lethargy, headache, diarrhea, paresthesia and hyperbilirubinemia…” – What could go wrong?

Truth about 9/11 would take down the US as a global empire: Kevin Barrett – from PressTV.ir – “Dr. Barrett said everyone in the United States believes that George W. Bush deserves blame for the September 11, 2001 attacks… ‘According to Jeb Bush, the brother of George Bush, Jeb being the apparent favorite candidate to win the Republican nomination for president, at least until Trump emerged, Jeb is now on the defensive, arguing that his brother George W. Bush was not responsible and there’s no blame for the 9/11 attacks… ‘In August of 2001, George W. Bush received the president’s daily briefing from the CIA, and it was headlined, ‘Bin Laden determined to attack in the United States’. Bush whipped his neck around and angrily screamed, ‘Well, you’ve covered your ass now,’ ‘ Dr. Barrett said… ‘Of course, the ungenerous interpretation of this is that Bush knew full well that plans were proceeding apace for the big public relations event in September, and he did not appreciate the CIA briefer covering his posterior while passing the buck up to the president,’ he added.”

Greece, lenders start talks on economic reforms under bailout deal – from PressTV.ir – “According to a statement by the Greek Finance Ministry, the high-level talks began on Wednesday between Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and representatives of the European Commission (EC), the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), known as Greece’s troika of international lenders, in Athens… A representative of European Stability Mechanism was also present in the talks… The statement further said the negotiations will continue later in the day, with the participants planning to review Greece’s public finances, the 2016 budget and tax legislation… The government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his left-wing Syriza party came to power in January on a vow to end the Greek people’s economic sufferings caused by the international bailout program… However, he bowed to the European pressure and finally accepted the daunting reforms demanded by the creditors to keep the debt-ridden country afloat.”

EXPOSED: The REAL cause of the sudden Syrian migrant crisis into Europe – from TheRightScoop.com – ” ‘So yes, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which is a fascist and indeed a racist who wants only Turkish people to be in his border. He is bringing Turkish people from every place to fight President Assad to CHANGE the demographic structure of Syria… And we have reliable information…that there was a kind of demographic replacement inside Syria nearby the city of Ar-Raqqa. There are two Chinese villages. The people, the Arab citizens from those villages were killed or displaced and Erdogan and ISIS brought Chinese Uyghurs to settle in those two villages. The Syrian people told me this story and they said we call it now the two Chinese villages… Another issue. The Syrian migrators – you know what happened in Europe in the last few weeks? Those people were displaced by some people in the North of Syria. Erdogan brought hundreds, thousands of Turkmen minorities to settle in those villages to the North of Aleppo on the border strip.‘ ”

Julia-AutisticSesame Street rolls out autistic muppet to ‘normalize’ vaccine injured children… follows Elmo push for mass vaccinations – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “In yet another sickening example of the absolute mental derangement of modern society, Sesame Street has rolled out its first autistic muppet named “Julia,” says the Sesame Street website… The rollout of autistic Julia is Sesame Street’s attempt to “normalize” vaccine injuries and depict those victimized by vaccines as happy, “amazing” children rather than admitting the truth that vaccines cause autism in some children and we should therefore make vaccines safer and less frequent to save those children from a lifetime of neurological damage.”

He said that the relevant bodies are now interrogating the Israeli colonel to understand the reasons behind his fighting alongside the ISIL forces and the presence of other Zionist officers among ISIL terrorists… The Iraqi security forces said the captured colonel has already made shocking confessions… Several ISIL militants arrested in the last one year had already confessed that Israeli agents from Mossad and other Israeli espionage and intelligence bodies were present in the first wave of ISIL attacks on Iraq and capture of Mosul in Summer 2014, but no ranking Israeli agent had been arrested.”

Agenda_2030-BergoglioAgenda 2030: Bankrupting the Third World, One Country at a Time – by Rusticus, ActivistPost.com – “While the true scope and depravity held in store for Africa at COP21 won’t be known to us until later this year, at least one nation, Ghana, has submitted its draft budget to the United Nations in advance of the Conference. The projected cost figure, if accurate, would be the next in a long chain of abuses against Ghana by Globalist entities like the IMF and multinational corporations alike… Ghana finds itself precariously situated between the geopolitical aims of two power factions on the “2D Chessboard” in the form of the Anglo-American Establishment and China. American colonization of Ghana by corporate entities and NGOs, draping themselves in the facade of benevolence, have a consistent track-record of introducing eugenic experiments in the region, often masked as philanthropy; “feeding the hungry” and “healing the sick” are the constant clarion calls of these wolves in sheep’s clothing.”

Police destroy 90-year-old woman’s home in drug raid, find nothing – by Daniel Barker, NaturalNews.com – “Another example of overzealous police trampling on the rights of ordinary citizens has surfaced, this time involving a 90-year-old Florida woman whose home was ransacked in a drug raid that turned up nothing… In December 2014, officers from the Riviera Beach Police Department conducted a raid on the elderly woman’s home based on the mistaken belief that drugs were being sold there… According to the woman, who asked not to be identified, the police targeted the wrong home. ‘I don’t know how the cops got in here,’ she recalls. ‘The noise woke me up when something said, ‘Boom!’ Like a bomb or something.’.. Apparently, the police broke down the senior citizen’s door and used a flash bang device during the raid, which shattered windows in the front of her home.”

For those of us who are science-literate, Nat Geo’s March 2015 cover is shocking. The issue attempts to confuse readers by comparing wild conspiracy theories, such as the assertion that the U.S. moon landing was faked, with justifiable concerns over the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the correlation between vaccines and autism.”

US shale producers have $150bn in debt – Rosneft CEO – from RT.com – ” The breakeven price for difficult to extract shale oil is $85-$98 a barrel, according to Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, which is putting US producers deep in debt… ‘The total debt of only 25 companies engaged in the extraction of shale oil is about $150 billion,’ said Sechin speaking at the Eurasian Forum in Verona, Italy, TASS reports… According Sechin it’s the United States not to OPEC that controls the global oil market. ‘OPEC is no longer the regulator, its meeting on October 21 [with non-OPEC members] did not bring any decisions,’ according to Sechin… Last week, the head of Russia’s biggest oil company said Riyadh has been actively dumping and cutting prices to secure its share of the market and gain new ones.

Whitehead, TheDailySheeple.com – “Under the guise of fighting violent extremism “in all of its forms and manifestations” in cities and communities across the world, the Obama administration has agreed to partner with the United Nations to take part in its Strong Cities Network program. Funded by the State Department through 2016, after which “charities are expected to take over funding,” the cities included in the global network include New York City, Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis, Paris, London, Montreal, Beirut and Oslo… Working with the UN, the federal government will train local police agencies across America in how to identify, fight and prevent extremism, as well as address intolerance within their communities, using all of the resources at their disposal… What this program is really all about, however, is community policing on a global scale.”

The Islamic State Meets The Laws Of Economics – by Felix Imonti, InformationClearingHouse.info – ” ‘Return of the Gold Dinar’ continues the IS practice of tying every action to the Abbasid Caliphate that ruled much of the Middle Eastern region from 750 to the middle of the thirteenth century. What was an Islamic Empire not much different from the Persian and Egyptian Empires before it minted its own coinage. The new coins are to display religious symbols like those on the original coins. Baghdadi would like his followers to imagine that they are a continuation of the long ago caliphate with only a mere seven hundred and fifty years disruption… The idea is not new. The proposal to create a gold Dinar was advocated in 2002 when Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad of Malaysia presented it at the Organization of the Islamic Conference. The problems in the economies of Moslem societies were attributed to foreign domination and a gold currency was to be the means of escaping dollar domination by creating a Moslem economic community… Daesh’s monetary problem is not domination by the USD. Rather, it is that the erasing of the borders between Iraq and Syria did not change the line drawn by two separate economies using two different currencies… If Daesh intends to create a single economy, it must create a common currency that will enable buyers and sellers to agree upon a price for goods and services without having to first decide upon an exchange rate.”

Russia-vs-ISISUS-Turkey “Buffer Zone” to Save ISIS, Not Stop Them – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Revealing the true nature of NATO’s “buffer zones” and the fact that they are aimed at saving, not stopping ISIS, Al Nusra, and other Al Qaeda linked extremist factions, further undermines the moral, political, diplomatic, and even strategic viability of this plan. By revealing to the world the true solution to solving the “ISIS problem” – cutting their fighters off from their Western and Arabian state-sponsors, opens the door to more aggressive – not to mention more effective – measures to defeat them both in Syria and elsewhere… That Russia has already begun taking these measures means that that window has closed further still for the US. The only question now will be whether the US concedes defeat, or escalates dangerously toward war with Russia to save a policy that has not only utterly failed, but has already been exposed to the world as a criminal conspiracy.”

Russian_SU-34-JetFighters‘A step closer to war’: UK pilots given green light to shoot down hostile Russian jets in Syria – by Romil Patel, uk.BusinessInsider.com – ” ‘The first thing a British pilot will do is to try to avoid a situation where an air-to-air attack is likely to occur — you avoid an area if there is Russian activity,’ an unidentified source from the UK’s Permanent Joint Headquarters told the Sunday Times. ‘But if a pilot is fired on or believes he is about to be fired on, he can defend himself. We now have a situation where a single pilot, irrespective of nationality, can have a strategic impact on future events.’.. The RAF Tornado aircraft will be armed with heat-seeking Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missiles — ASRAAMs, also called AIM-132 missiles. These weapons, which cost 200,000 pounds each, can reach triple the speed of sound and have a longer range than other air-to-air missiles, allowing RAF pilots to shoot down enemy aircraft without being targeted themselves.”

Vaccination: how the West invades the world – by Jon Rappoport, ActivistPost.com – “In recent years (think Swine Flu, SARS, and other fake epidemics), the World Health Organization has played a major role in insisting—with threats of sanctions and quarantines and travel advisories—that nations vaccinate their citizens to the hilt, in order to protect the world against “the deadly spread of viruses.”.. The WHO wields significant power in this regard. It is a pharmaceutical enforcer… Here is the second aspect of the vaccination-invasion: the local leaders of “backward” nations stand to gain from the vaccine ruse… Instead of having to admit they are causing widespread death and devastation by maintaining poverty, hunger, starvation, unsanitary overcrowded living conditions, and contaminated water supplies—all of this on purpose, in order to keep their populations weak and under control…”

Mideast_Refugees-AustriaTrouble in Paradise: German Officials Hide Refugee Crimes, Fearing Backlash – from SputnikNews.com – “Authorities in Germany are deliberately keeping quiet about crimes occurring in refugee shelters, especially those involving brutality against women, as the country’s policy of taking in asylum-seekers and providing them with sustenance and a monthly stipend has enraged many, who see the massive influx of young, mostly male Muslims as a threat… Merkel Under Pressure Over Refugees as Opposition Spills on to Streets
Germany is failing to control rampant crime among its new refugee population, but authorities are afraid to disclose the matter to the press. The influx has already enraged many ordinary Germans, who made their opinions known in Dusseldorf and other cities for the first time last year during anti-Islamisation protests. The country is expected to take in 1.5 million refugees in 2015, according to the Telegraph, which cited leaked government figures on Monday.”

Big_ZuckerbergFacebook Reportedly Censoring Anti-TPP Posts (w/Video) – by Kit Daniels, PrisonPlanet.com – “Within the first 30 minutes of its publication on Infowars.com, the article entitled TPP to Kill Thousands by Expanding Monopoly Power of Drug Companies would constantly hit around 50 shares on the embedded Facebook counter, but then the counter would drop dramatically, as shown in these videosThis occurred several times over the 30 minute period and an investigation by IT staff found nothing unusual that could be interfering with the counter… Facebook was similarly censoring an anti-GMO article back in July… ‘We’ve seen thousands of reports regarding the censorship of content by Facebook and others regarding the TPP, Monsanto and similar topics,’ Anthony Gucciardi said regarding the censored article. ‘The bottom line here is that this article [was] being blocked across numerous platforms under the guise of a ‘security’ threat, when we know full well that these sites are perfectly safe.’.. The social media giant was also suppressing an article exposing the “Pope Kid” incident in which amnesty activists staged a PR stunt involving Pope Francis to promote illegal immigration.”

Facebook illegally tracks internet users’ behavior and location even if they don’t have accounts, EU report claims – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “Entitled From social media service to advertising network: A critical analysis of Facebook’s Revised Policies and Terms, the paper explains how Facebook’s data collection and tracking protocols are ethically and morally questionable, at best. Facebook’s contract terms, in fact, are so unfair and stacked against users that they blatantly violate European consumer protection law, according to experts… And opting out of Facebook’s Orwellian data-mining schemes is difficult, if not impossible, warns the paper, as users must first navigate an intricate web of difficult-to-find “opt-out” sections buried deeply within the site, and in multiple locations. In other words, Facebook is going to track and monitor you whether you like it or not, and sell this information to unnamed third parties and other sources… …even non-users are having their privacy violated by Facebook, something that the Facebook’s European Public Policy Vice President Richard Allen recently admitted to in a blog post.” (emph. added)

Germans Could Have Their Children Snatched For Anti-Migrant Facebook Posts – Opposing influx of “refugees” puts people at risk of being fired – by Paul Joseph Watson, PrisonPlanet.com – “Germans who make racist anti-migrant posts could have their children snatched by the state and be fired from their jobs, according to the German Lawyers’ Association… In an article entitled Racism and parenting: Threatening loss of custody?, lawyer Eva Becker, Chair of the Working Group on Family Law in the German Bar Association, outlines the conditions under which “xenophobic” Facebook posts could lead to parents being targeted… Although Becker asserts that merely opposing the settlement of migrants in Germany would not lead to parental rights being terminated, such views could easily lead to someone being fired from their job… Expressing a desire for violence against the migrants would constitute evidence enough for a family court to remove children from the home, according to Becker… While this appears to be a high bar, idle threats of violence are made by countless people on the Internet every day, with the vast majority going completely unpunished.”

ISIS-Toyotas-at-DuskThe Mystery of ISIS’ Toyota Army Solved – by Tony Cartalucci, GlobalResearch.ca – “The mystery of how hundreds of identical, brand-new ISIS-owned Toyota trucks have made it into Syria is solved. Not only has the US and British government admitted in the past to supplying them, their military forces and intelligence agencies ply the borders of Turkey, Jordan, and even Iraq where these fleets of trucks must have surely passed on their way to Syria – even if other regional actors supplied them. While previous admissions to supplying the vehicles implicates the West directly, that nothing resembling interdiction operations have been set up along any of these borders implicates the West as complicit with other parties also supplying vehicles to terrorists inside of Syria.”

Warning to activists: Grassroots movements being systematically infiltrated by big industry operatives – by Julie Wilson NaturalNews.com – “Big industry special-ops hijack grassroots movement by infiltrating controlled opposition in top leadership roles
Public opinion is a powerful thing, and big business knows it. With the media under control, their most feared opposition are activists and the grassroots movements they organize… The playbook for evil and corrupt industries like Big Pharma and Big Agra, namely Monsanto, is to hijack grassroots movements by infiltrating its top leaders with controlled opposition, particularly those in positions with admin controls… Natural News has now witnessed the infiltration of grassroots movements in two major cities with two different initiatives, both of which severely threatened the reputation and profits of prominent corporations.”

Obama Administration plotting adult vaccination mandates – from NaturalNews.com – “In collaboration with Big Business and special interests, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is plotting a new program to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to “encourage” more inoculations, and foist more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Federal bureaucrats and crony capitalists set to profit from the proposal claim the goal is to improve “public health,” and establishment media outlets have largely parroted that line so far. However, critics of the unconstitutional scheme, formally dubbed the “National Adult Immunization Plan”[1] (NAIP), say the ultimate goal is to forcibly vaccinate all Americans and move toward a radical new healthcare paradigm in which medical “treatment” is delivered at gunpoint. (Story by Alex Newman, republished from TheNewAmerican.com)… ‘The noose being tightened around the necks of our children is being thrown over the necks of adults as well,’ Wrangham said. ‘The tightening of that noose is growing daily in an attempt to strangle vaccine freedom of choice by eradicating the ethical principle of informed consent.’ ”

Anton_GerashchenkoTop Ukraine official backs idea ‘to help ISIS take revenge on Russian soldiers in Syria’ – from RT.com – ” ‘I think that their faces [on TV] will be enough, so that Islamic State militants and their supporters in Russia, the majority of whom are in the Caucasus region, could then find them and take revenge [on them] under Sharia law,’ the Facebook user wrote to Gerashchenko… Gerashchenko, who also attached an RT video showing Russian military jets in Syria in his post, seemed to be inspired by the idea. He urged everyone who has any information about Russian servicemen fighting ISIS in Syria to report the data on the volunteer-made Mirotvorec (Peacekeeper) website. For such information, there would be a special section, entitled “Putin’s crimes in Syria and Middle East.”.. The majority of Gerashchenko’s Facebook friends supported the idea, calling it “brilliant” and “effective.” However, not everyone got motivated by such a call.”

US nursing Daesh in Afghanistan: Russia officials – from PressTV.ir – “Russian officials have suggested that the United States is plotting the deterioration of the security situation in Afghanistan and the expansion of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group there… The officials made the remarks during a security conference in Moscow, Russia Today reported on Thursday… Addressing the event, Zamir Kabulov, the Russian presidential envoy to Afghanistan, said, on several occasions, Taliban groups which had refused to join Daesh were “set up” to be targeted by US airstrikes… ‘The Afghan Army practically has no aircraft. Only the Americans do. These details bring some very bad thoughts and concerns. We have to take them into account and draw conclusions accordingly,’ the official said… ‘It seems like someone’s hand is pushing freshly trained ISIL (Daesh) fighters to mass along Afghanistan’s northern border. They don’t fight foreign or Afghan government troops,’ Kabulov noted.”

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S. – by Pamela Geller, Breitbart.com – “What is a global police force doing in our cities? This is exactly the abdication of American sovereignty that I warned about in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. The Obama Department of Justice made it clear that it was exactly that when it distributed a press release last week announcing the ‘Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism.’ In that press release, the DoJ complained that ‘while many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.’.. So if the local and municipal effort to counter the euphemistic and disingenuous “violent extremism” is inadequate and hasn’t developed ‘systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale,’ the feds – and the UN – have to step in.(emph. added)

As Russia Bombs ISIS, US Bombs Syrian Civilian Power Stations – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “…the United States launched a bombing mission of its own against two power plants in Aleppo… The power plants were located in al-Rudwaniya east of Aleppo and resulted in power outages affecting the Syrian people, adding to the American tradition of bombing civilian infrastructure instead of ISIS and other terrorist targets in Syria. The power outages only further contribute to the misery surrounding the people of Aleppo who have been bombarded by barbarians funded by the United States and NATO, intent of raping and beheading their way through the city and declaring their caliphate of pre-civilization on civilized people… It should also be noted that the US bombing campaign is a violation of international law, unlike the Russian campaign where Russian forces were invited in to the country by the legitimate government… The United States has long maintained that its bombing campaign was directed at ISIS but, to date, very little damage has been done to ISIS structures, facilities, or personnel by any American airstrikes.”

IDF-at-Al-AqsaNetanyahu’s End Game: Annexation of East Jerusalem? – by Anthony Bellchambers, GlobalResearch.ca – “It is reported today that: ‘Tensions have surged in 11 days of violence in which four Israelis and 17 Palestinians ­ including several Palestinians shot by police, have been killed in Jerusalem, the Israeli­-occupied West Bank, Gaza and in Israeli cities.’.. This violent unrest has been provoked by the Israeli government’s apparent attempt to change the long-established and sensitive, religious control by Muslim elders of the al­-Aqsa mosque compound, Islam’s third holiest shrine. This action has clearly been pre­meditated by a Likud government with full knowledge of the inevitable consequences.”

Could Eating Honey Be A Form of Microbial Time Travel? – by Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo.com – “Did you know that there are billions of years of biological information encoded within your cells, and that depending on what you do or do not eat, the information is activated or remains latent?.. It is a biological fact that the distant past is embedded within the present. No one could have described this more aptly and tangibly than Thich Nhat Han when he said: ‘If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.’ ”

Israeli-Settlers-throw-stonesNetanyahu Unleashes Settler Attacks, Targets Palestinian Hospitals and Patients – by Stephen Lendman, SJLendman.blogspot.co.uk – “Netanyahu-ordered state terror continues raging with no end in sight. Heavily armed soldiers, militarized police, border guards and other security forces are systematically terrorizing Palestinians – beating, wounding and murdering them in cold blood…Police states operate this way, Israel one of the vilest, run by Arab-hating fascists, criminal thugs by any standard, unrestrained brutality their mode of operation – fully supported by Washington…Netanyahu unleashed extremist settlers to commit “vigilante attacks against Palestinians,” the Yesh Din human rights group explained.”

California mandatory vaccination bill allows courts to order forced injection of neurotoxins into developing children – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “Reports indicate that some public school systems, including the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), are already throwing some students out of class for not having been injected with neurotoxin-laden jabs like MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), even though no student with a religious or medical exemption is required to be vaccinated until after SB 277 comes into effect on July 1, 2016… Confusion is already running rampant as school districts, daycare facilities and other educational facilities prematurely bar students from attending classes based on a misunderstanding of what SB 277 entails. Thanks to the poor leadership of the California Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, who failed to instruct schools on how to handle SB 277’s implementation, school districts across the state are breaking the law by interfering with their students’ ability to obtain a public education.”

Google degenerates into Ministry of Truth; all knowledge must now be pre-approved by search algorithm – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – Gone are the days when you could search Google and pull up neutral, relevant content appropriate to your search query. The search engine giant is reportedly pioneering a new search algorithm that will tailor search results not based on popularity or accuracy, but rather on what Google itself deems to be truthful or untruthful… The world’s new “Ministry of Truth”, Google believes that screening and censoring information requested by its users will help avoid “websites full of misinformation” from showing up at the top of the search list. Known as the “Knowledge Vault,” the novel algorithm is described by The New American as ‘an automated and super-charged version of Google’s manually compiled fact database called Knowledge Graph.’.. ‘[The Knowledge Vault] promises to let Google answer questions like an oracle rather than a search engine, and even to turn a new lens on human history,’ wrote Hal Hodson for NewScientist about the project.”

Forget Polar Bears – New Study Claims Kidney Disease Due to Global Warming! – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “In a move that serves as a reminder of the prevalence of lack of integrity within the Western medical industry, as well as the commitment to federally funded non-scientific political propaganda, Dr. Richard Johnson researcher at University of Colorado Anschutz has recently declared that a rare kidney disease observed in Central American sugar cane worker is caused by, get this, “global warming.”.. ‘This could be the first epidemic directly caused by global warming,’ said Johnson, professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and a world-renowned expert on the underlying causes of obesity, kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. ‘Some districts of Nicaragua have been called the ‘land of widows’ due to the high mortality rates occurring among the male workers from chronic kidney disease.’.. This latest shockingly dishonest and almost laughable medical political claim serves to remind us that modern-day Western medicine and politically funded government “scientists” will stop at nothing to promote the agendas of their masters who apparently now go well beyond just the pharmaceutical industry.

Medicated_andAmericans now PROUD to be medicated with mind-altering drugs: #MedicatedAndMighty hashtag now being used by total zombies sporting bags full of prescription drugs – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by the left-leaning Buzzfeed news site, #MedicatedAndMighty is a hashtag developed by Erin Jones, a blogger who posted a photo on her Facebook page of her holding a pair of prescriptions for psychotropic drugs after being offline for a while, with this accompanying explanation: ‘So this also happened yesterday. I have tried living this life without prescription help. It seems to have me on top of the world one minute and rocking in the corner the next. There is no consistency. I’m done with that. Anxiety and antidepressant medication to the rescue. Sometimes, folks, we just need help.”.. Jones told the online publication that she made her revealing post in order to bring attention to the issue of “mental health” and to be open and honest about her life.”

Medical madness: CDC names 271 new vaccinations – how many will be mandated at gunpoint? – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “Children born in America today are subjected to at least 56 doses of 14 different vaccines before the age of 18, an incredible number compared to what children received back in the 1950s and 1960s. But the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is gleefully awaiting the arrival of some 271 more vaccines which, when they become commercialized, will generate an additional $100 billion for vaccine companies by the year 2025… Vaccines for allergies, autoimmune disease and even cancer are all making their way through the development pipeline, where they could one day end up on the “mandatory” vaccine schedule that children are required to receive, unless they opt for an exemption, before being allowed to attend school.” (emph. added)

I didn’t think TTIP could get any scarier, but then I spoke to the EU official in charge of it – by John Hilary, Independent.co.uk – “In our meeting, I challenged Malmström over the huge opposition to TTIP across Europe. In the last year, a record three and a quarter million European citizens have signed the petition against it. Thousands of meetings and protests have been held across all 28 EU member states, including a spectacular 250,000-strong demonstration in Berlin this weekend… When put to her, Malmström acknowledged that a trade deal has never inspired such passionate and widespread opposition. Yet when I asked the trade commissioner how she could continue her persistent promotion of the deal in the face of such massive public opposition, her response came back icy cold: ‘I do not take my mandate from the European people.’

Greek Cash Ban Escalates: ‘Permanent’ Stricter “Capital Controls” On 3 Million Pensioners, Civil Servants Imposed – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “In a stunning move towards the elites’ endgame of ‘banning cash’, Greek authorities unveiled stricter capital controls for civil servants and pensioners this weekend. By drastically limiting cash withdrawals and forcing the more ‘controllable’ compulsory use of plastic money, Greek authorities hope to stop tax evasion through the use of ‘fake cash registers’… As KeepTakingGreece.com reports, A shock-measure: civil servants and pensioners will be subject to stricter capital controls than the rest of the Greeks. They will be able to withdraw only €150 per week – with the cash withdrawal cap being €420 per week – that is a total of €600 per month. The rest of their wage or pension they will have to spend by using debit or credit card.’.. The news fell like a bombshell on Saturday evening and spoiled the weekend of millions of Greeks. It will probably spoil the rest of their lives too.’

Jens_Stoltenberg-PokingNATO ready to help Turkey against Russia: Stoltenberg – from PressTV.ir – “The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has announced its readiness to “help” its member state Turkey, more than a week after Russian jets, carrying airstrikes in Syria, strayed into Turkish airspace… ‘Turkey is a strong ally and they have the second-largest army. They have a capable air force, so the Turkish armed forces are the first responders, but NATO is there to help and assist them if they need,’ NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday… The Turkish military said it had scrambled two F-16 warplanes on October 3 after a Russian fighter jet crossed into its airspace near the southern province of Hatay.” – Note: “Turkey’s airspace” was a claimed 5 km “buffer zone” inside Syria.

Western (NATO) Aid to Terrorists: Iraqi Forces Seize US-Supplied Anti-Armor Missiles from ISIS in Fallujah – by Fars News Agency, GlobalResearch.ca – “The Iraqi army and volunteer forces discovered US-made military hardware and ammunition, including anti-armor missiles, in terrorists’ positions and trenches captured during the operations in the Fallujah region in Al-Anbar province… The Iraqi forces found a huge volume of advanced TOW-II missiles from the Takfiri terrorists in al-Karama city of Fallujah… The missiles were brand new and the ISIL had transferred them to Fallujah to use them against the Iraqi army’s armored units… Iraqi officials have on different occasions blasted the US and its allies for supplying the ISIL in Syria with arms and ammunition under the pretext of fighting the Takfiri terrorist group… ‘The military hardware and weapons had been airdropped by the US-led warplanes and choppers for the ISIL in the nearby areas of Beiji,’ military sources told FNA.”

Libyan_refugee_boatUN Security Council Authorizes EU Naval Forces to Attack Vessels Transporting Refugees in the Mediterranean – by Abayomi Azikiwe, GlobalResearch.ca – “A vote by the Security Council of 14 to 1 empowers European Union (EU) Naval forces to purportedly halt and turn back vessels that are transporting migrants across the Mediterranean into Southern Europe. Only the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela abstained in the decision… This renewed effort is called “Operation Sophia” consisting of six naval war ships from the EU in constant patrols off the coast of Libya. These vessels have been given the ability to halt, seize, detain and destroy boats utilized by human traffickers bringing thousands to Europe every week… A statement issued by the EU operations said “Assets will conduct boarding, search, seizure and diversion, on the high seas, of vessels suspected of being used for human smuggling or trafficking.” One Italian aircraft carrier, a French frigate and another from Britain, along with a Spanish ship and two German ones will be spearheading the mission, which follows in the same pattern as the EU anti-piracy expeditions off the Horn of Africa.”

US Senate Hearing Discusses Using Refugees as Human Shields in Syria – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “A recent US Senate hearing regarding Russia’s ongoing air campaign in Syria plumbed dark depths when it was actually proposed by retired US Army General John M. Keane that “free zones” be established for armed militants, and populated with refugees to deter Russian attacks. In essence, General Keane’s plan is to use refugees as human shields, and leverage any attack on this established “free zone” as a means of manipulating public opinion… The recent multinational anti-terror operation led by Russia at the request of the Syrian government has dealt the United States and its narrative regarding its own military intervention in Syria a severe blow… It has become abundantly clear that not only has the United States been arming and funding extremists inside of Syria, including groups operating in tandem with listed terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front, it also appears that the US has feigned its campaign against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL)… While the US now poses as determined to “defeat” ISIS in Syria, just last year talking points circulated about instead “containing” the terrorist organization within Syria – essentially letting it ravage the country, degrade the fighting capacity of the Syrian government and hopefully, lead to the collapse of Damascus.

mq-9_Reaper-Keeping_PeaceA New Snowden? Whistleblower Leaks Trove of Documents on Drones & Obama’s Assassination Program – from DemocracyNow.org – “Newly leaked government documents have provided an unprecedented window into the secret U.S. drone assassination program across the globe. In “The Drone Papers,” The Intercept reveals drone strikes have resulted from unreliable intelligence, stemming in large part from electronic communications data, or “signals intelligence,” that officials acknowledge is insufficient. The documents also undermine government claims that the drone strikes have been precise. In Afghanistan, strikes on 35 direct targets killed at least 219 other people. Among other revelations, they also suggest the strikes have hurt intelligence gathering and that unknown male victims have been labeled as “enemies killed in action” unless evidence later proves otherwise. The documents were leaked to The Intercept by an unnamed U.S. intelligence source.” (emph. added)

ARE WE WITNESSING A FALSE FLAG INTIFADA? – fromDesertPeace.wordpress.com – “Needless to say, Netanyahu’s statement before the Knesset on Monday that Israel was ready and willing to cooperate with Amman and Cairo against terror constitutes a real insult to both the Jordanian and Egyptian regimes… In truth, Netanyahu, by offering to cooperate with regional powers against terror, actually wants Amman and Cairo to openly support Israel’s doomsday designs against the Aqsa Mosque as well as Israel’s ongoing crimes against Palestinian civilians… Israel has already killed any remaining realistic prospects for the establishment of a viable Palestinian state on the territories Israel occupied in 1967… Now, Israel under Netanyahu wants to complete the “final solution” for the Palestinian question by getting some Arab regimes to endorse the liquidation of the Palestinian cause under the rubric of fighting terror.”

Hillary-Pretty-in-PinkHillary Clinton’s Take on Banks Won’t Hold Up – The Democratic frontrunner seems to be counting on America’s ignorance about the 2008 crash – by Matt Taibbi, RollingStone.com – “Hillary, like her close advisor Barney Frank, has been pushing an idea that banks aren’t at the root of any financial instability problem. Last night, she pointed a finger instead at “shadow banking,” non-bank actors like AIG, and a dead investment bank in Lehman Brothers. (Interesting she didn’t mention a still-viable investment bank like Goldman, Sachs, which has hosted her expensive speaking engagements.).. This squeamishness about criticizing banks is laughable to people in the industry. But of course, that’s probably the point – that the average voter won’t know how absurd and desperate it is to point to faceless “shadow” financiers as villains when the real bad guys are famed mega-firms that are right out in the open, with their names plastered all over every second city block.”

The MH-17 ‘Report’ – by Paul Craig Roberts, InformationClearingHouse.info – “I did not intend to write about the report, because Washington’s propaganda has already succeeded, at least in the Western world, in its purpose of laying the blame on Russia. However, the misrepresentation of the Dutch report by Western media, such as NPR, is so outrageous as to make the media the story and not the report… For example, I just heard NPR’s Moscow correspondent, Corey Flintoff, say that the missile that hit the airliner was fired by Ukrainian separatists who lack the technical ability to operate the system. Therefore, the missile had to have been fired by a Russian… There is nothing in the Dutch report whatsoever that leads to this conclusion. Flintoff either is incompetent or lying or he is expressing his view and not the report’s conclusion… The only conclusion that the report reaches is one that we already knew: if a Buk missile brought down the airliner, it was a Russian-made missile. The Dutch report does not say who fired it… Indeed, the report places no blame on Russia, but it does place blame on Ukraine for not closing the airspace over the war area.”

MH-17: The Dog Still Not Barking – by Robert Parry, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The Dutch Safety Board report concludes that an older model Buk missile apparently shot down Malaysia Airline Flight 17 on July 17, 2014, but doesn’t say who possessed the missile and who fired it. Yet, what is perhaps most striking about the report is what’s not there – nothing from the U.S. intelligence data on the tragedy… The dog still not barking is the absence of evidence from U.S. spy satellites and other intelligence sources that Secretary of State John Kerry insisted just three days after the shoot-down pinpointed where the missile was fired, an obviously important point in determining who fired it… On July 20, 2014, Kerry declared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that ‘we picked up the imagery of this launch. We know the trajectory. We know where it came from. We know the timing. And it was exactly at the time that this aircraft disappeared from the radar.’.. But such U.S. government information is not mentioned in the 279-page Dutch report, which focused on the failure to close off the eastern Ukrainian war zone to commercial flights and the cause of the crash rather than who fired on MH-17. A Dutch criminal investigation is still underway with the goal of determining who was responsible but without any sign of an imminent conclusion.”

France’s top weatherman sparks storm over book questioning climate change – Philippe Verdier, weather chief at France Télévisions, the country’s state broadcaster, reportedly sent on “forced holiday” for releasing book accusing top climatologists of “taking the world hostage” – by Henry Samuel, Telegraph.co.uk – ” In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: ‘Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.’.. He added: ‘We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.’.. His outspoken views led France 2 to take him off the air starting this Monday. ‘I received a letter telling me not to come. I’m in shock,” he told RTL radio. “This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated.’ ”

Drone-NeutralizerCompany Releases Video of First Ever Drone Neutralizer Gun – by Amanda Warren, ActivistPost.com – “A U.S. non-profit company has just released an impressive video of a drone neutralizing gun that successfully forces an airborne drone to land almost immediately. The futuristic-looking gun can down a drone at 400 meters using radio signals… The company’s name sounds like a cross between “battle” and the toy company Mattel – Battelle, based in Ohio. Unfortunately, if you were hoping to get your hands on one of these to keep surveillance bots out of your private space – they are only being marketed to the U.S. Government… The U.S. Sci-tech contractor will make them available to the government next year, signaling that it is really only government agents that are able to protect themselves from the very invasive weapons that they themselves monopolize.” (emph. added)

Toxic Lithium Being Sprayed Over Oregon And The US – by Ann Fillmore, PhD, Rense.com – “Excerpt from Locke’s first letter: ‘For example, I could have warned thousands of people of the ongoing (as of January 27th) spraying to manufacture air stagnation in the Rogue and Umpqua Valleys, as well as much of the Oregon Coast south of Florence. The artificially induced period of air stagnation is part of a larger experiment testing the efficacy of psychoactive chemical dispersal from high altitudes. Currently, spraying is most intense along the coast itself and above inland valleys. The stagnant air currents in the region allow for more direct application of psychoactive agents to test populations… ‘I have little formal contact with the chemistry department, but to my knowledge Lithium is the primary substance being dispersed in the aforementioned experiment. Given the psychoactive/social nature of the ongoing tests, my department is playing a secondary role collecting water and soil samples… ‘The Sociological Research Division however, has operatives throughout the region gathering a massive amount of data regarding the test population’s behavioral traits, like consumer habits, political engagement levels, and awareness of geoengineering programs.’ ”
I would urge you to inform your friends and peers of this fact, as avoiding observation by refusing to take surveys and engaging in similar actions that can disrupt this sordid research.“

Kerri_RiveraMother of Autistic Boy Discovers Treatment That Cures Hundreds – by Alex Pietrowski, WakingTimes.com – “Effective treatment for autism is desperately needed, but the medical establishment has been largely unsuccessful. This is why parents of autistic children, such as Kerri Rivera, often have no choice but to take matters into their own hands when learning to cope with raising an autistic child. To share her amazing discoveries in treating autism with the world she wrote the book Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, which explains the treatment protocol she developed… Rivera developed the Chlorine Dioxide (CD) autism treatment protocol that addresses the presence of pathogens, such as fungi, bacteria, heavy metals, parasites, candida, etc., found in almost every child with autism. She believes that CD treatment effectively kills off these pathogens that are causing inflammation and autoimmune response, which in turn manifest themselves into a complex of symptoms, which we call autism, that produce near complete impairment of social interactions… Rivera’s treatment has reportedly resulted in the recovery of over one hundred autistic children, and many parents would even consider her protocol to a possible autism cure.”

Putin-StirredVladimir Putin – Agent of the Awakening? – by ZenGardner.com – “Well, well, well, aren’t we seeing a massive turnaround of late. Putin was so sharp, calm and truthful at the UN and other recent speeches and interviews compared to the same old Amerikan false bravado diatribe it was like having a clean shower after swimming through a cesspool… And the whole free world feels the same… What I admire about him is his cool demeanor and very artful tact in how he approaches massively sensitive subjects. He has to cloak it in “diplomati-speak” of course to reach the type of audience within those bound up layers of communication, but he does it masterfully. You don’t sense the BS factor and full on propagandized deception you get from the Obamaramadingdong script reading puppet… I know the whirled stage is just that, but nothing’s written in stone and there are always “free floating radicals”. Whatever engineered plans are afoot, there’s always plenty of room for error in their programming – as well as their assumption that the rest of the world will automatically buy into it as they imperiously assume.”

For the week of 10/5/15:

The Russian Bear Growls – President Bashar Assad Is No Great Satan – by Eric Margolis, InformationClearingHouse.info – “After watching Syria be slowly destroyed, Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, moved his rook onto the Syrian chessboard. For the first time since 1991, Moscow sent a small expeditionary unit of 50 warplanes to Syria both to shore up the Assad regime and to reaffirm that Russia has long-standing strategic interests in Syria… Few of the administration’s bumbling amateur strategists likely knew that Russia claimed during the 19th century to be the rightful protector of Mideast Christians. Russia watched in dismay the destruction of Iraq’s ancient Christian communities caused by the overthrow of their protector, President Saddam Hussein. Moscow has vowed not to let a similar crime happen again to Syria’s Christians… Russia is also clearly reasserting a degree of her former Mideast influence. In 1970, Russian pilots tangled with Israeli warplanes over the Suez Canal during the “War of Attrition.” The flying time from Moscow to Damascus is about the same as New York City to Miami. Syria is in Russia’s backyard, not America’s… A highly effective propaganda war waged against Syria and Russia by the US, French and British media has so demonized Syria’s President Assad that Washington will find it very difficult to negotiate or include him in a peace deal. The US made the same stupid mistake with Afghanistan’s Taliban and now is paying the price.”

Media Continues to Call for the Use of Gov’t Force to Confiscate Millions of Guns – by Alex Thomas, Activist Post.com – “At this point the anti-gun agenda has completely and fully revealed itself as having absolutely NOTHING to do with “common sense” gun control and everything to do with full-scale gun confiscation and the eventual complete banning of legal gun ownership in America… The liberal media and their globalist masters, by continually claiming that they only want to stop mass shootings while at the same time openly calling for confiscation, have also revealed that they truly do believe that the American people are mindless sheep who will believe anything they hear on TV… Going forward it is extremely important for all Americans to understand what media pundits and gun control groups are actually calling for when they bring up Australia while also using calls to model US laws on the country as direct proof that there is nothing common or sensible about the “reforms” they are pushing.”

Al_Nusra-Executes_WomanWar Party Hates Putin – Loves al-Qaeda – by Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com – ” ‘Jamil al-Saleh, a defected Syrian army officer who is now the leader of the rebel group Tajammu al-Aaza, told AlSouria.net that the Russian airstrikes targeted his group’s base in al-Lataminah, a town in the western Syrian governorate of Hama. That area represents one of the farthest southern points of the rebel advance from the north and is therefore a crucial front line in the war. An alliance of Syrian rebel factions, including both the al Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front and groups considered by Washington to be more moderate, successfully drove Assad regime forces out of the northern governorate of Idlib and are now pushing south into Hama.’ –Foreign Policy… By the way, according to the Pentagon’s own testimony before a congressional committee, only sixty “vetted” fighters were sent into Syria to take on both Assad and ISIS. And while they denied, at first, that their pet “moderates” betrayed Washington and handed over most of their weapons and other equipment to al-Qaeda in return for “safe passage,” the Pentagon later admitted it. Furthermore, we were told that these were the only “vetted” fighters actually in the field, but now we are confronted with “Tajammu al-Aaza,” which – it’s being reported – is deploying US-supplied missile guidance systems against Syrian government forces”

Chris_Mercer-selfie_altered CNN Alters Photo of Umpqua Killer Chris Harper-Mercer to Make Him Look White – by Jim Hoft, PrisonPlanet.com – “Via Conservative Treehouse: On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media. On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast? Why is no-one showing pictures of mom, Laurel Margaret Harper… His online profiles have been erased since the shooting.” – Note: Mercer’s nostrils have also been obviously altered and lips made thinner. Wow.

Militant groups reject UN peace initiative on Syria – from PressTV.ir – “The militant groups issued a statement on Saturday rejecting the initiative by the UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura… The statement, a rare case of unity among the militant groups, which include those directly backed by the United States such as Division 101, said the initiative includes mechanisms that would more benefit the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad… ‘We consider that the ‘work groups’ initiative in its current form and its unclear mechanisms provides the perfect environment to reproduce’ the government, said the statement by the so-called National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces.”

Russia-T14_Armata-captionCold War Mentality: NATO Should Prepare for War With Russia – UK Officials – from SputnikNews.com – “Former UK army officials said that the Russian military is more effective in comparison to NATO’s, calling on the bloc’s leaders to urgently invest more money on improvement of joint force capabilities and to “revisit Cold War scenarios, and this includes conventional, symmetric warfare in Eastern Europe,” The Sunday Express reported… First, British Army officials appear alarmed by the ability of the Armata battle tank, which is an example of a new generation of Russian power tanks with nothing comparable elsewhere in the world. It can easily withstand any attack by NATO’s anti-tank missiles, both already in existence and those yet-to-be invented.”

Russia Uses High Tech Smart Bombs to Wipe Out US Sponsored Al Qaeda Terrorists. Panic in Rebel Ranks – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “Lebanon-based Arab satellite television Al Mayadeen reported ISIS forces evacuating areas around their stronghold Raqqa location. Unknown numbers pulled out… After Russia’s campaign began, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said ISIS and other terrorist groups are being targeted. ‘These organizations are well known and the targets are chosen in coordination with the armed forces of Syria.’.. US media feature willful Pentagon misinformation and Big Lies, including Air Force General Robert Otto claiming Russia is using “dumb bombs,” not laser-guided precision weapons, accusing Moscow irresponsibly of indiscriminate bombing – polar opposite truth… Claims about Russian air strikes killing civilians are willfully falsified. Targets are carefully chosen to avoid them – unlike how America operates.”

UN_2030-Off_2_SeeAt UN Summit, World Rulers Adopt Agenda for Global Socialism – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “A far-reaching United Nations plot to re-engineer civilization and impose global socialism on humanity, variously dubbed “Agenda 2030” and the “Sustainable Development Agenda,” was ushered in on Friday with a “thunderous standing ovation,” the UN Department of Public Information reported. Every one of the 193 UN member governments on the planet — from communist and Islamist dictatorships to those ruling what remains of the “Free World” — vowed to help impose the UN’s controversial goals on their subjects. Indeed, according to the UN and the global agreement itself, not a single human being will be allowed to escape what one prominent internationalist ominously referred to as the next “Great Leap Forward.” ”

The Making of a Sociopathic Killer: A List of Risk Factors for School Shooters – by Gary Kohl, OpEdNews.com – “There is an immense amount of evidence that legally prescribed psychiatric drugs are major contributors to acts of violence. This evidence has been gathered (and even published [in peer reviewed journals and alternative media outlets that don’t take advertising revenue from Big Pharma]) by a number of science writers, pharmaceutical industry whistle-blowers, courageous neuroscientists, good investigative journalists and a multitude of silenced psychiatric drug survivors. The range of acts of violence by Drug-intoxicated psych patients range from self-harm to suicidal thinking to suicidal attempts to homicidal thinking to mass murder, and the media is silent on the psych drug connection. (For more on the large variety of aberrant behaviors strongly linked to the so-called SSRI antidepressants, go to www.ssristories.net.).. It is important to acknowledge that the mainstream media’s uber-wealthy corporate media owners profit mightily from Big Pharma’s prime time advertising. It is also important to acknowledge that these media elites also profit mightily from their Wall Street investments in the pharmaceutical industry sector. Given those realities it is just good business sense to suppress any unwelcome information that would adversely impact their corporate or personal bottom lines. And so the McCarthy-era black-listing of truth-tellers, uncorrupted scientists, authors, whistle-blowers and real journalists is the norm wherever corporations and the wealthy elite rule.”

Yet another psych drug shooter: Oregon gunman Christopher Mercer was taking five types of medication, likely vaccine-damaged with autism spectrum disorder – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “New information is now emerging about Christopher Mercer, the now-deceased shooter who recently killed and injured numerous victims at the Oregon community college (Umpqua Community College). While the mainstream media follows the predictable script of blaming guns for the violence, we now know that Mercer was almost certainly damaged by vaccines and medications, altering his mind and leading to the violent behavior that we see so often when psychiatric medications are involved… We now know that Harper was possibly vaccine-damaged because he suffered from Asperger’s syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder. As printed in The New York Times…”

The_Bernank-CluelessGlobal Financial Meltdown Coming? Clear Signs That The Great Derivatives Crisis Has Now Begun – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – ” ‘Speaking at a Wall Street Journal event on Wednesday morning, Bernanke said, ‘I don’t see any obvious major mispricings. Nothing that looks like the housing bubble before the crisis, for example. But you shouldn’t trust me.’ ‘… I certainly agree with that last sentence. Bernanke was the one telling us that there was not going to be a recession back in 2008 even after one had already started. He was clueless back then and he is clueless today… Most of our “leaders” either don’t understand what is happening or they are not willing to tell us… So that means that we have to try to figure things out for ourselves the best that we can. And right now there are signs all around us that another 2008-style crisis has begun… Personally, I am hoping that there will be a lot more days like today when the markets were relatively quiet and not much major news happened around the world… Unfortunately for all of us, these days of relative peace and tranquility are about to come to a very abrupt end.”

Russian_DestroyerHas Russia Declared A “No-Float Zone” In Syria? – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Russian warships and reconnaissance vessels are speeding out of the Black Sea into the Mediterranean as I write. The ships will establish a no float zone for any ships trying to interdict the arrival of over 140,000 Russian soldiers at the ports of Tartous and Latakia. Moreover, it appears Russian aircraft are increasing sorties over Syria and have crossed the border into Turkey in pursuit of Erdoghan’s murderous criminals. The decision to increase Russia’s role in the conflict was not made yesterday, as Waleed Mu’allim, Syria’s Foreign Minister, stated in an interview. This was, as I reported, a plan that had been drawn up by General Gerasimov and his assistants years ago. The only impediments were Syria’s obsession with keeping foreign boots off Syrian soil and the assurances from Syrian Army generals that the war would be over by now without foreign intervention. Dr. Assad has made the intelligent and courageous decision to set aside Ba’athist fears of occupation and bring Russia fully into the conflict.” –previously reliable journalist, Ziad Fadel

Escalation of US Military Involvement in Ukraine. Vietnam 2.0 in the Making? – By John Stanton, GlobalResearch.ca – “Surreptitious escalation of US military involvement in Ukraine is the order of the day. Consider this comment from US Senator Jack Reid (Democrat): ‘One step that should be explored, he said, is taking Ukrainian forces outside the country and training them on the provided weapon systems, “so they’re ready.” ‘Second is the possibility of transferring some of these systems from other countries into Ukraine, which doesn’t raise quite the visibility of the transfer,’ he said. ‘And then there’s the possibility of taking some of our systems and beginning to…deploy them to training areas particularly so that they can train on them and have them ready to move into areas of conflict,’ he said… He also said Ukraine has an extensive military industrial base that could be used to produce the weapons, but that would take time and financing.”

Turkish_Syria_bufferZone NATO Prepares to Send Troops to Protect Turkey from Russian “Threats”Deployment will effectively provide military support for ISIS and al-Nusra– by Kurt Nimmo, PrisonPlanet.com – “NATO boss Jens Stoltenberg said during a meeting of defense ministers in Brussels on Thursday the alliance is prepared to send ground troops to protect Turkey’s border with Syria… ‘Nato is ready and able to defend all allies, including Turkey against any threats,’ Stoltenberg said… The move is in response to a claim by Turkey a Russian warplane violated its airspace last week… Ankara scrambled two F-16s to intercept the Russian aircraft and summoned the Russian ambassador in protest… According to McClatchy, however, the Russian jet did not violate Turkish airspace… Earlier this week a leaked German intelligence document confirmed reports that Turkey is directly assisting Harakat Ahrar ash-Sham al-Islamiyya, a coalition of Islamist and Salafist units that have vowed to establish a Sunni Wahhabist state under Sharia law in Syria… Ahrar ash-Sham is aligned with al-Nusra which has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.”

Netanyahu-VictoriousKilling Fields: Are Israeli Forces Preparing For Another Genocidal Massacre of Palestinians? – by 21wire, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Not surprisingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is blaming this fall’s wave of violence on the native Arabs and foreign countries who support them. He blamed recent violence on the Palestinian Authority that (sort of) controls the West Bank, and of course he blames Hamas in Gaza, claiming that their “incitement and libels and lies” have set off unrest… ‘All of us, we’re in the midst of a wave of terrorism… terrorists that are incited, filled with hatred and trying to hurt people,’ said Netanyahu… Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stated he does not want the current situation to escalate. Many feel that Abbas is holding back a new intifada, but wonder for how long.”

Baby taken into care over fears it could be radicalised: Child is among 20 taken from their parents in crackdown on Islamists – by Ian Drury, Dailymail.co.uk – “A baby is among more than 20 children who have been made the subject of court orders amid fears they could be radicalised by Islamists… Judges have issued care or wardship proceedings involving at least 11 families amid concerns their children could be taken or lured out of the country to join Islamic State… The youngest – a one-year-old – was part of a family of nine Britons from Rochdale who were caught trying to sneak into Syria from Turkey in April.”

Hilary-n-Tony-on_The_TeamHillary’s surprising ties to Tony Blair – by Sarah Westwood, WashingtonExaminer.com – “Hillary Clinton and Tony Blair, the former prime minister of Britain, enjoyed a close personal relationship that allowed them to collude on a number of foreign policy issues behind the scenes… Blair went from helping the former secretary of state make moves in the Middle East to joining former Clinton insiders at a well-connected consulting firm whose work has stoked concerns that the Clintons help their friends profit off their personal ties… Additional details about Blair’s relationship with Clinton have emerged in several batches of private emails that have been released by the State Department at the end of each month, including those published Wednesday.”

Over 2,000 PKK militants slain in Turkish military operations – from PressTV.ir – “Turkish Interior Minister Selami Altinok says more than 2,000 members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) have been killed ever since the Turkish military launched clean-up operations against the militants in late June… ‘Since July 22, a total of 2,483 terrorist attacks have taken place in Turkey. Turkish gendarmerie, security and armed forces have also conducted 4,328 operations in the country during which over 2,000 terrorists were neutralized,’ Altinok told state-run Anadolu news agency on Monday… He further noted that Turkey would not allow anyone to harm its sovereignty.”

Walt_PerettoInternational bankers orchestrate economic crises to loot masses: American writer – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘When the economy crashes people don’t have the money to pay their bills and their loans. When this happens, real material wealth is transferred to these very same banks through foreclosures and repossessions,’ Walt Peretto said in an interview with Press TV on Monday. ‘It’s the biggest con job ever perpetrated against mankind.’.. In a recent interview with Russia Today, former US presidential candidate and congressman Ron Paul said that the biggest economic crash ever will hit the American economy when current “bubbles” burst… ‘The way the Western economic system is constructed, the potential for a catastrophic economic crash wreaking havoc across the globe is ever present,’ Peretto said.”

Globalist agriculture cartel pillages Ukraine as IMF and World Bank wage war to expand Monsanto’s GMO empire – by S. Johnson, NaturalNews.com – “When Ukraine’s pro-Western government was placed in office following the 2014 Maidan Revolution, these previously tabled aid packages were suddenly back on the table. One such aid deal was a $3.5 billion package, financed by the World Bank, which imposed neoliberal conditions on Ukraine as a precondition for lending the nation money. Specifically, the World Bank essentially required Ukraine to curtail its own sovereignty by ‘removing restrictions that hinder competition and by limiting the role of state ‘control’ in economic activities.’.. The new government wasted no time bringing in foreign investment, which, according to the Oakland Institute, is ‘likely to result in further expansion of large-scale acquisitions of agricultural land by foreign companies and further corporatization of agriculture in the country.’ “

Look-Film-this-too Video: Iraqis Accuse US of Arming ISIS After Discovering Alleged Weapons Airdrop – by Mikael Thalen, PrisonPlanet.com – “The unknown man goes on to claim that both food and weapons were supplied to ISIS fighters during their time in the area… ‘These are American parachutes that the Americans sent to IS when they were here in Baiji,’ he states. ‘With them they sent weapons and food. So that no one can say that we are lying, film this so you will see…’ According to Guardian contributor Hayder al-Khoei, who posted the footage to Twitter Thursday, “Vids like this & others of helos flying above Hashd/ISF positions towards ISIS-held areas” often reinforce the popular ‘narrative that US supports ISIS in Iraq.’.. As noted by the Wall Street Journal last June, a growing number of Iraqi residents believe ISIS jihadists are receiving direct support from the American government in light of the terror group’s continued gains… ‘We all know that America is providing ISIS with weapons and food, and that it is because of American backing that they have become so strong,’ Abbas Hashem, a 50-year-old who fled Ramadi, told reporters.”

Deutsche Bank May Swell $14 Billion Selloff in China Bank Stakes – from Bloomberg.com – “Deutsche Bank AG’s signal that it may sell a $3.5 billion stake in Huaxia Bank Co. shows the fading appetite among global lenders for tie-ups with their Chinese counterparts… That’s a turnaround from before the global financial crisis, when Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Bank of America Corp. were among those buying in, often ahead of firms’ listings… Global lenders including Bank of America and Goldman Sachs Group have raised at least $14 billion divesting shares in Chinese lenders since the start of 2012, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Hang Seng Bank Ltd., controlled by HSBC Holdings Plc, is getting out of Industrial Bank Co., while Spain’s Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA is exiting from China Citic Bank Corp.”

Israeli-American Terror Machine exposed, checkmated and decimated in Syria – Thanks to Putin’s remarkable decimation of ISIS in Syria and checkmate and exposure of the Israeli-American Terror Machine, there is no longer any need for Homeland Security inside America – by Preston James, Ph.D, VeteransToday.com – “Both the US Administration and the Pentagon have now admitted that the USG has been supporting the FSA which was supposed to be fighting ISIS but instead was trying to displace President Assad… And a highly ranked retired American General has now even admitted that the USG allowed ISIS to exist and develop… And it was even reported in the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) that the US Administration admitted that approximately 3.5 million dollars was wasted on each so-called CIA mercenary sheep-dipped to be an FSA fighter which was instead trying to dispose President Assad but failing in that too… President Obama has now admitted that the USG has been supporting ISIS and the FSA. This probably constitutes a major turning point in the PNACers and the Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens who have infiltrated and hijacked the Pentagon maintaining power there.”

Climate Alarmist Caught in ‘Largest Science Scandal in U.S. History’ – by James Delingpole, Breitbart.com – “…his first, far bigger mistake, was his hubris in organizing the letter in the first place. It drew the attention of Shukla’s critics to something which, presumably, he would have preferred to keep secret: that for nearly 14 years, he, his family and his friends have been gorging themselves on taxpayers’ money at IGES; and that this money comes on top of the very generous salary he receives for doing much the same work at George Mason University (GMU)… It’s the latter detail which has led former Virginia State Climatologist Pat Michaels – one of the skeptics who might have been affected by Shukla’s proposed RICO prosecutions – to describe this asthe largest science scandal in US history.’ “

Snowden-SmartPhoneOne Secret Text Gives any Police State Agency Total Control of Your Phone – Even When It’s Off – by Jay Syrmopoulos, ActivistPost.com – “Whistleblower Edward Snowden, in an interview with the BBC’s ‘Panorama,’ spoke in detail about a stunning array of cyber spying tools used by the U.K.’s GCHQ to hack smartphones with a single text message. The spyware package is named after the little blue cartoon characters; the Smurfs… ‘It’s called an ‘exploit’,’ Snowden said. ‘That’s a specially crafted message that’s texted to your number like any other text message but when it arrives at your phone it’s hidden from you. It doesn’t display. You paid for [the phone] but whoever controls the software owns the phone,’ he added… Smartphone users can do “very little” to stop security services getting “total control” over their devices, according to Snowden.”

Dem_Peoples_Party-BombedBlast Shakes Ankara Just in Time to Justify NATO Incursion into Syria – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “A massive blast has killed at least 30 and injured over 100 more in NATO-member Turkey’s capital of Ankara. The blast appears to have targeted the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) who was holding a peace rally at the moment of the explosion… CNN would report in their article, “30 killed in bombing near main train station in Turkey’s capital,” that: ‘At least one powerful bomb hit near the main train station in the Turkish capital Saturday morning, killing 30 people, authorities said, making it the deadliest attack in Ankara in recent memory.’.. It would also claim that: ‘No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, though suspicion immediately fell on the ISIS terrorist group or on Kurdish separatists in Turkey.’ (emph. added) – Right

Saudi Arabia to supply militants in Syria with ‘lethal’ weapons – from PressTV.ir – “Riyadh would dispatch an arsenal of modern, high-powered weaponry, including guided anti-tank weapons, to three foreign-sponsored militant groups of Jaish al-Fatah (the Army of Conquest), the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Southern Front, the state-run BBC reported on Thursday, citing an unnamed ‘well-placed Saudi government official’… The official further said that Qatar and Turkey had been playing a key role in maintaining the Saudi support for militants fighting against Syrian government forces. He also did not rule out the possibility of supplying surface-to-air missiles to militants.”

Leiberman-Support_Iran_AttacksSyria: US Success Would Only Be the End of the Beginning – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “This regime in Tehran is hopeless. It’s not going to change. There’s no evidence … every piece of evidence says the contrary. So I hope we can find a way, we used to do this not so long ago, supporting opposition groups in Iran. They deserve our support, and actually they would constitute a form of pressure on the government in Tehran that would unsettle them as much as anything else we could do because it would threaten the survival of the regime which from every objective indicator I can see is a very unpopular regime in Iran.” (emphasis added by Cartalucci)

The Emperor Has No Clothes, and Neither Do Monsanto’s ‘Scientists’ – by Katherine Paul, OrganicConsumers.org – “Turns out that Monsanto executive solicited pro-GMO articles from university researchers, and passed the “research” off as independent science which the biotech giant then used to prop up its image and further its agenda… We know this, thanks to thousands of pages of emails obtained by US Right to Know, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). And because a host of news outlets—including the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Bloomberg, the StarPhoenix and others—are now running with the story.”

‘Went in like Gestapo’–Sonoma sheriffs’ bloody rampage – by Richard Becker, LiberationNews.org – “At a press conference in Santa Rosa, about 60 miles north of San Francisco, attorney Isaak Schwaiger announced the legal action, and described the actions of the deputies: ‘Dressed in black, wearing black body armor, black ski masks and without badges, they went in like the Gestapo. From one module to the other end they carried on the beatings for five-and-a-half hours. Some prisoners were beaten four times.’.. Joining Schwaiger at the speakers table were Laurie Banks, mother of Daniel Banks, and Karina Arango Lopez, sister of Jesus Lopez, who received particularly extreme and prolonged torture… Laurie Banks read from a letter from her son, who was in the last cell attacked: ‘Mom I knew they were coming, they were going down the line.’ She continued, ‘he was scared for his life. He had no idea how bad the beatings were.’

Atlit_Camp-IsraelUntold Story of British WWII Concentration Camps for Jewish Refugees – from SputnikNews.com – “…the nationwide Kristallnacht (“Night of Crystal”) in Germany in November 1938 facilitated a sharp increase in Jewish emigration… But where could they go? It was a time when Palestine was seen by many as the only light at the end of the tunnel… The grim irony of the situation was that the British concentration camps looked strikingly similar to those established by Nazi Germany in Europe… Tens of thousands of desperate Jewish asylum seekers were captured by the British on the shores of Palestine and placed into detainee camps.”

“Marketplace” Program, from ‘Nonprofit’ NPR, Pumps Fascism – by Eric Zuesse, RINF.com – “On October 7th, U.S. National Public Radio’s (NPR’s) “Marketplace’ show headlined glowingly ‘How the TPP will drive domestic reform in Asia’… (Kai) Ryssdahl (of NPR’s Marketplace) reported there the views of only those four people, one of them President Obama, who created his three mega-‘trade’ deals — TPP, TTIP & TISA — and three supporters of these ‘trade’ deals. That’s all… However, in reality, these ‘trade’ deals are the most corrupt and dangerous three treaties in the history of the world; and, if they get passed into law, then democracy will be dead, or else meaningless, in the signing nations, because regulations there will get locked in permanently, with no ability to be increased where needed in order to accommodate new scientific findings; and sovereignty will to a large extent pass from voters via national elections, to huge international corporations, whose ‘rights’ are in these deals placed above the rights of the voters and taxpayers of the participating signatory nations. It would be international corporate fascism, but the ’nonprofit’ NPR propaganda-operation in the U.S. calls it ‘reform’ and other such lies.”

For the week of 9/28/15:

Putin-UN-Gen-Assy-9-28-15Speech of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the UN 70th General Assembly (Updated with <video &> transcript!) – from TheSaker.is – “We all know that after the end of the Cold War the world was left with one center of dominance, and those who found themselves at the top of the pyramid were tempted to think that, since they are so powerful and exceptional, they know best what needs to be done and thus they don’t need to reckon with the UN, which, instead of rubber-stamping the decisions they need, often stands in their way… That’s why they say that the UN has run its course and is now obsolete and outdated. Of course, the world changes, and the UN should also undergo natural transformation. Russia is ready to work together with its partners to develop the UN further on the basis of a broad consensus, but we consider any attempts to undermine the legitimacy of the United Nations as extremely dangerous. They may result in the collapse of the entire architecture of international relations, and then indeed there will be no rules left except for the rule of force. The world will be dominated by selfishness rather than collective effort, by dictate rather than equality and liberty, and instead of truly independent states we will have protectorates controlled from outside.”

Jeff_BerwickUS Moves Closer to Internal Passport System – by Jeff Berwick, DollarVigilante.com – “…the idea that US Homeland Security is charging ahead with what amounts to an internal US passport system is ludicrous… Such a system is so bad, so entirely retrograde, that we can find its roots in the Axis countries of the Second World War and of course in Communist countries of the same period. It is no accident that that system came under attack after the fall of the USSR… The idea that leviathan has the authority to track, trace and limit one’s travel ought to frighten the living daylights out of any US citizen concerned with fundamental constitutional rights…Homeland Security – a Bush concocted authoritarian facility – has been trying to implement “Real ID” for years and has received so much pushback that it isn’t much further along than it was when this disastrous nonsense was first passed in 2005.”

Hundreds of Iranian Soldiers in Syria for Major Ground Offensive: Report – from InformationClearingHouse.info – “As Russia has started airtrikes in Syria, hundreds of Iranian soldiers preparing to join government forces in a major ground offensive have reportedly arrived in the country in the past 10 days, sources told Reuters on Thursday… The ground offensive, according to the two Lebanese sources who talked to Reuters, will work in concert with the Russian bombardment and may be focused in the Idlib and Hama countryside… ‘They are not advisors … we mean hundreds with equipment and weapons. They will be followed by more,’ a second source told Reuters… Iraqis will also take part in the joint operation, the source said… News of the arrival of the Iranian soldiers comes a day after Russian warplanes began to strike Syria alongside government warplanes, drawing criticism from the US, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.”

mark-zuckerberg-7.jpgMark Zuckerberg Caught on Hot Mic Saying Facebook Will Censor Anti-Migrant Posts – by Mikael Thalen, PrisonPlanet.com – “According to CNBC, the pair were caught on a hot mic after Merkel confronted Zuckerberg on social media posts critical of ‘the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany.’.. After being asked about Facebook’s efforts to curtail speech, Zuckerberg stated, ‘We need to do some work,’ confirming he’d already started looking at ways to hinder comments in opposition to Merkel’s immigration stance… ‘Are you working on this?’ Merkel asked. “Yeah,” Zuckerberg responded before their microphone was cut… In response to the shocking revelation, media outlets such as Bloomberg immediately leapt to the defense of the tech giant, insinuating that any critique of the German government’s response to the migrant crisis would be “racist” and “xenophobic.” ”

Is Glencore The Next Lehman? The World’s Largest Commodities Trading Company Is Toast – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “When Glencore goes down, they will take a whole lot of others with them. That is because Glencore is tied to trillions of dollars worth of derivatives trades all over the planet. According to Zero Hedge, we are looking at ‘the start of a self-fulfilling prophecy which leads to the Companys’s IG downgrade and the collapse of trillions in derivative notionals as what may be the trading desk of the biggest commodity counterparty quietly goes out of business.’.. For years I have been ranting about the danger of derivatives. In article after article I warned that they would play a starring role in the next financial crisis… Now the reality of what I was warning about is staring us right in the face… The “nothing is happening” crowd is completely and utterly clueless. There are these people running around telling everyone that the stock market decline is “over” and that we aren’t about to experience another great financial crisis… I don’t understand how these people can be so ignorant. Global giants such as Glencore, Petrobras and Deutsche Bank are imploding right in front of our eyes.”

As a Future Labour Government Becomes Reality, Tories Panic as Bankers See Gravy-Train Crashing – by Anthony Bellchambers, GlobalResearch.ca – “Multinational companies currently protected by the Conservative government will be forced in future to pay taxes in the country where they make their profits… Those disadvantaged, disabled and unable to work will have benefits reinstated ­ provided, of course, that they survive this administration… Insider trading and £1million annual bonuses will be made illegal. Tax avoidance by the city will be prosecuted and those found guilty, subject to mandatory imprisonment… Railways and mass transport systems will be nationalised and fares made affordable to all as an essential public service. Shareholders will have to find unearned profits in America or elsewhere… Bonuses for company directors who fail will be abolished by law… A replacement for the Trident nuclear deterrent will only be considered if it is can be proven capable of defending the United Kingdom in the future from the massive undeclared Middle Eastern, nuclear arsenal held by Israel that is outside the inspection of the IAEA.?

Regulated out of Existence: Off-Gridders Forced back on the Grid, Camping on own land Illegal – by Robert Richardson, SHTFPlan.com – “During the last couple of years, Costilla County, Colorado has seen a huge influx in people moving into the San Luis Valley – must of who have moved there to live off the grid. A combination of cheap land, lax zoning regulations, and a community of self-reliant individuals has brought in a large number of off-grid homesteaders into the area. But that life-style is now being threatened as government officials move to make it illegal — something that is becoming a real problem for those who are looking to buy rural land… Last week tensions reached a boiling point, as a scheduled county commissioners’ meeting in San Louis, Colorado, turned into an ugly shouting match between sheriff deputies and off-grid homesteaders. The conflict comes as the county is attempting to ban camping, and force off-grid home owners back on to the grid… Twenty-year resident Paul Skinner summed it up at the planning commission meeting, ‘We are residents who have come to live off the grid. It’s all our land.” … “These are harsh economic times. We have nowhere to go.’ ”

Mom-Baby-n-CopAlabama Cops Using Draconian Law to Steal Babies and Lock Up their Mothers at Alarming Rate – by Justin Gardner, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “A disturbing pattern is emerging out of Alabama that highlights the budding field of authoritarianism as the state ramps up its kidnapping of babies and arresting of mothers — for no reason… In August of 2014, Casey Shehi gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Despite being born four weeks premature, little James was exceptionally strong. However, the celebration of James’ birth was quickly turned into a nightmare when the state got involved… A few weeks after giving birth to a healthy baby boy, Etowah County sheriffs dragged Ms. Shehi away in handcuffs from her job at a nursing home, charging her with “knowingly, recklessly, or intentionally” exposing her baby to controlled substances in the womb… The reason? She took half of a Valium a few weeks before the baby was born, during a particularly bad night in a difficult pregnancy. A drug screen at Gadsden Regional Medical Center showed the presence of benzodiazepines. It should be noted that occasional, small doses of Valium are considered safe during pregnancy… Even though the baby showed no “controlled substances” in his system after birth, and the state’s child welfare agency had concluded they should not take the baby, ruthless cops determined that Ms. Shehi should have her life turned upside down.”

Maine Supreme Court rules that State can vaccinate children against will of parents – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “Four out of five Supreme Court justices in the State of Maine think that parental rights concerning vaccination are moot in the event that the State takes custody of a child. In a landmark ruling that sets a dire precedent for health freedom, the Court decided in a recent case that a mother whose child was taken into custody by the State of Maine no longer has authority to opt out of vaccinations for her own child.”

Putin4Putin Attacks US ‘Information Warfare’: Civilian Bombing Reports Emerged BEFORE Strikes Began – by Stuart Hooper, 21stCenturyWire.com – “This week will go down in history as the time that Western hegemony died; in more than one sense… Russia’s President Putin delivered a landmark speech this week at the UN General Assembly where he truly humiliated Western foreign policy decisions in Syria… Since then, Russia began to launch airstrikes on all forces destabilising the state of Syria… This led to an incredibly embarrassing response from Western mainstream media, claiming that ‘moderate’ terrorists, not ISIS (despite there being no real difference), had been bombed and civilians had been killed… Enter Putin (again), who has now branded those reportsinformation warfare‘. The reason why – is because those reports emerged before any Russian combat missions had even started.”

Oregon Shooting: 13 Troubling Signs Of Potentially Yet Another False Flag – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “So, should we believe that the Oregon shooting is legitimate with no government involvement? I would like to think so, but as always many things surrounding this latest shooting force us to consider if we’re dealing with yet another gun grab shooting designed to push anti-gun legislation. With the new world order’s Agenda 2030 pushed last week with help from the Pope, we know that Obama now has gun control as one of the remaining major items on the top of his list before he leaves office in 2016. The administration desperately needs this gun-control agenda to be pushed through and we’ve seen a laundry list of proven false flag shootings over the past several years… Are you someone who wants to believe this is not so? Then deal with these 13 points which at the very least bring into question this latest shooting.”

Hillary-pointBlankHillary’s Missing Millions – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “I can’t prove it, but I’ll bet that a close analysis of the Clintons, their Foundation, and their “charitable contributions” would show that the Clintons are running a substantial bribery and money laundering operation that allows the paying of bribes under the pretext of making charitable contributions… I’ll bet that Hillary’s “missing” $50 million was “disappeared” by means of contributions to foreign “charities”. If so, we are left to wonder why would the Clintons (the Clintons!) actually donate $50 million (roughly half of their current net worth) to foreign charities. It’s virtually inconceivable that such donations could’ve been made for benign, non-criminal purposes.”

Biden-Kennedy_School-2014Obama Risks A Global Catastrophe – by Daniel Lazare, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Ordinarily, the press might be expected to inject a note of reason except that the major media outlets so far seem as confused (or misleading) as anyone. Anne Barnard and Neil MacFarquhar’s front-page story in Friday’s New York Times is typical of the muddled thinking that passes for journalism these days… Rife with innuendo, it charges that Russia has intervened in Syria in order to embarrass Obama – ‘always a consideration for Mr. Putin’ — and predicts that ‘the glow of early Russian successes will almost certainly fade … as the realities of Syria’s grim, four-year civil war slowly assert themselves. Mr. Assad’s forces are worn down and demoralized, and they are in control of only about 20 percent of Syria’s territory.’.. True enough, although they might have added that if the Syrian military is showing signs of exhaustion, it is because the U.S. and its allies have poured “hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of military weapons” into the arms of the opposition, as Vice President Joe Biden let slip in a talk at Harvard’s Kennedy School last October.”

Deutsche_Bank-Too_Big_toThere Are Indications That A Major Financial Event In Germany Could Be Imminent – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “Is something about to happen in Germany that will shake the entire world? According to disturbing new intel that I have received, a major financial event in Germany could be imminent. Now when I say imminent, I do not mean to suggest that it will happen tomorrow. But I do believe that we have entered a season of time when another “Lehman Brothers moment” may occur. Most observers tend to regard Germany as the strong hub that is holding the rest of Europe together economically, but the truth is that serious trouble is brewing under the surface. As I write this, the German DAX stock index is down close to 20 percent from the all-time high that was set back in April, and there are lots of signs of turmoil at Germany’s largest bank. There are very few banks in the world that are more prestigious or more influential than Deutsche Bank, and it has been making headlines for all of the wrong reasons recently… Just like we saw with Lehman Brothers, banks that are “too big to fail” don’t suddenly collapse overnight. The truth is that there are always warning signs in advance if you look closely enough.”

Is NOAA Altering Weather Data Ahead of the Big UN Climate Change Meeting? – by Melissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “In its report on this, The Guardian answers the question “Why has nobody thought of getting a global agreement on this before now?” by saying they’ve been trying to get something going in this area for 20 years now at least but only in the last two decades has “science” consistently pointed in one direction which is that greenhouse gas emissions from industry and fossil fuels are causes global temps to rise… The science, huh? The “settled” science? The data that has “consistently pointed in one direction”?.. Ignore a decades-long cooling period. Ignore Climategate — an organized climate change conspiracy and collusion in exaggerating warming data out of the Climate Research Unit at University of East Anglia — or that NOAA tried to erase the “pause” in warming in 1998 by saying it was just “improperly adjusted data”, for a moment… Also ignore any anomalies that could be caused by clandestine solar radiation management aka geoengineering (spraying of particulates to reduce incoming sunlight) as has been advocated in UN IPCC reports.” (emph. added)

CENSORED: The Atlantic buried this amazing interview with the Health Ranger after realizing his answers made too much sense – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “There’s a lot of relevant information The Atlantic fails to disclose in its stories, it turns out. And for this story on alternative medicine, they interviewed me in great detail, asking me a number of questions about natural medicine, complementary therapies, and so on. But when the story was finally published, Atlantic editors had deleted my entire interview from the story. They didn’t use a single quote… The reasonable question that now comes to mind is whether The Atlantic is also an industry front group or a legitimate journalism organization. It can’t be both. If you consistently print pro-GMO and pro-vaccine articles, you’re shilling for industries of extreme deception and financial collusion. If you engage in real journalism — like Sharyl Attkisson does — you’ll quickly come to discover that the biotech and vaccine industries are filled with actual criminals, felons, violent wife abusers, vaccine science fraudsters, fugitives from justice and other nefarious characters who run their entire operations. See Big Pharma criminality no longer a conspiracy theory: Bribery, fraud, price fixing now a matter of public record.

Death-from-WhereverA Secret War in 135 Countries – 2015 Proves to Be Record-Breaking Year for the Military’s Secret Military – by Nick Turse, CommonDreams.org – “This year, U.S. Special Operations forces have already deployed to 135 nations, according to Ken McGraw, a spokesman for Special Operations Command (SOCOM). That’s roughly 70% of the countries on the planet. Every day, in fact, America’s most elite troops are carrying out missions in 80 to 90 nations, practicing night raids or sometimes conducting them for real, engaging in sniper training or sometimes actually gunning down enemies from afar. As part of a global engagement strategy of endless hush-hush operations conducted on every continent but Antarctica, they have now eclipsed the number and range of special ops missions undertaken at the height of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

California Vaccine Refusers to Get “Court Order” or “CPS Visit” Under SB277 – from HealthImpactNews.com – “The language of SB277 left enforcement and vaccine noncompliance up to the school’s governing authority for each district. Orange County’s Department of Education’s Legal Division interprets that a court order to vaccinate will be an option. Will all California school districts, by way of their legal counsels, be directed to file court orders against noncomplying parents of all school children in 2016? These court orders would essentially trump the unvaccinated special needs child’s legal right to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in California under the U.S. Department of Education’s requirements under Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973… The other option given by the Orange County Department of Education’s Legal Division for SB277 vaccine noncompliance directs school staff to “Contact the Orange County Health Care Agency for assistance.” In the real world, this means Child Protective Services (CPS) will most likely get involved. This clear assumption is backed up by the fact that the California Educators Training Module, required to be taken by all teachers and staff, requires the reporting of children to CPS due to ‘Medical neglect, such as not providing appropriate medical care, dental care, or immunizations.’ ”

Francis-I_WonderPope Pushes Malthusian Elite Agenda In Historic Call For New Global Order – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “Government corruption by lobbyists to silence the voices of the people, staged war on terror, endless illegal wars of aggression, ongoing false flag operations with crisis actors, out of control police state, creation and arming proxy terrorist armies like ISIS, geoengineering ongoing crimes against humanity and the planet, ongoing GMO poisoning of the human race’s DNA, the list goes on and on of all the issues ‘Pope Francis’ did NOT address in his “historic” visit to the U.S. this week. The rote ceremonies, staged political speeches and propaganda have been ongoing particularly after the Pope’s visit and speech to Congress where he officially endorsed the coming “sustainable” new world order.”

Agenda 2030 Translator: How to Read the UN’s New Sustainable Development Goals – by Aaron and Melissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “It’s that time again: the United Nations is officially releasing the all new Agenda 2030 sustainable development plan, or what some have hailed as “the new Agenda 21 on steroids,” at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit kicking off today in New York City… Since these supposedly non-binding international agreements can sometimes be a bit tricky to decode, what with all the weaponized buzz terms and semantics games, we’ve prepared a handy dandy translator on the 17 new Agenda 2030 goals below.” – It’s easy, kids! and don’t worry, there won’t be a test.

VaroufakisAusterity is being used as a cover-story for class war against the poor, Yanis Varoufakis says – Economics professor points to tax cuts for the wealthy and service cuts for others – by Jon Stone, Independent.co.uk – “Also speaking on Question Time Mr Varoufakis praised British institutions like the NHS and universities and said Britain should abandon the current establishment enthusiasm for imposing market economics on them… ‘This market fetishism entered realms it was never meant for,’ he said… Mr Varoufakis also welcomed the election of Jeremy Corbyn and said he hoped the new Labour leader would reinvigorate left-wing politics in the same way Margaret Thatcher did for right-wing politics in the 1980s.”

Swedes’ Homes May Be Confiscated to Accommodate Asylum Seekers – One month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Sweden: August 2015 – by Ingrid Carlqvist, GatestoneInstitute.org – “The question is: Where will they live? More and more people are now worrying that the government will confiscate the homes of Swedes and give them to asylum seekers. In 1992, the “Threat and Risk Assessment Commission” (Hot- och riskutredningen) established that the government should have the option to seize property, especially summer homes, from the Swedish people in a time of crisis. In early September, editorial columnist Anna Dahlberg of Expressen, one of Sweden’s largest dailies, urged Swedes to “make way” and ‘hand over the keys to their apartments to those in greater need.’ ”

Vladimir-Putin-binocsPutin’s calculations in Syria – Vladimir Putin is moving decisively to rescue last Russian foothold in Middle East and on Mediterranean – by Martin Sieff, TheArabWeekly,com –
“Although the move is being painted in the US media as reck­less, meaningless and dangerous, Putin is making a rational calcula­tion. And once again he has caught Obama administration policymak­ers and Israeli Prime Minister Biny­amin Netanyahu by surprise… First, Putin is moving decisively to rescue the last Russian foothold in the Middle East and on the Mediterranean… Russia is a country deeply con­cerned with maintaining the status quo and preserving its increasingly challenged position in the world. That is a far cry from the revolu­tionary communist ideology of the Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras that fantasised with perfect faith about toppling every Sunni Arab monarchy and emirate from the Atlantic to the Indian oceans.”

Cops Illegally Raid Couple’s Organic Farm, Assault them Both because they are “Constitutionalists” – by William N. Grigg, ActivistPost.com – “It’s important to note that at this point, the officers had no direct evidence that criminal conduct was underway or had occurred at the domicile. The receipt of an anonymous third-party report would have justified a “knock-and-talk” contact, but the deputies had neither a warrant nor probable cause, and therefore no legal authority to enter the home without the couple’s consent. This was why they demanded that Bear and Marcela exit the home at gunpoint. When Marcela, the supposed victim, tried to retreat into the home, Detective Perecz committed an act of felonious violence by laying hands on her… As Marcella tried to shut the kitchen door, Perecz, who outweighed her by at least 100 pounds, grabbed her by the left wrist and started to pull the struggling woman from the house… ‘Why are you dragging me out of my home?’ Marcela demanded. ‘Why would you be pulling me out of my home?’ ”

Jeremy_CorbynJeremy Corbyn: 9/11 was ‘manipulated’ – by Peter Dominiczak, Telegraph.co.uk – “In comments that will raise questions about his suitability to lead the Labour Party, Mr Corbyn appeared to blame George Bush and Tony Blair for using the September 11 attacks in New York to allow them to go to war… In a series of further articles, Mr Corbyn also appears to endorse controversial conspiracy theories about a “New World Order”… It comes as Mr Corbyn prepares for his first conference as Labour leader… Mr Corbyn will attempt to use the Brighton conference to unite the party after it threatened to split apart in the wake of his shock election victory… However, a number of Labour MPs are expected to use the conference to publicly state that the party is unelectable under Mr Corbyn.”

Scientists Figure Out How To Transmit Thoughts Over The Internet – from HealthFreedoms.org – “It starts with a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’… Researchers have figured out how to send thoughts over the Internet using a brain-to-brain connection and a huge magnet. What could go wrong?.. It sounds kind of cool, at face-value: two people can play a game over the Internet by reading each other’s thoughts. They don’t have to look at each other, and they don’t have to talk to each other. The details of the experiment, and its findings, are published in the journal PLOS One… …Now the researchers are preparing to try to transmit more complex data. They believe the process could be used for “brain tutoring” – transferring signals from healthy brains to developmentally-impaired ones. They say it may also someday allow an alert individual to transmit his brain state to someone who has difficulty paying attention.” (emph. added)

GMO-Safe-to-eat10 Studies Showing That GMOs Can Be VERY Harmful To Human Health! – from HealthFreedoms.org – “Over the past few years, a number of countries have completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go along with them, and they are doing so for a reason. The latest country to consider a complete ban is Russia after top government scientists recommended at least a 10-year ban… The truth is, we don’t know enough about GMOs to deem them safe for human consumption. Believe it or not the very first commercial sale of them was only twenty years ago. There is no possible way that our health authorities can test all possible combinations on a large enough population, over a long enough period of time to be able to say with absolute certainty that they are harmless… There are a multitude of credible scientific studies that clearly demonstrate why GMOs should not be consumed, and more are emerging every year. There are also a number of scientists all around the world who oppose them.”

Holistic Doctor Didn’t Die of Suspected Heart Attack Autopsy Reports Say – from HealthFreedoms.org – (Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D., who worked with (murdered?) Dr. Jeff Bradstreet on GcMAF, died suddenly of unknown causes on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. The following quote is from his website) ” ‘It is with great sadness that the office of Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D. relays news of his untimely death on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. He died suddenly at home of unknown causes. Until then, he had been in excellent health. Preliminary autopsy results have been inconclusive, but do not support the initial belief that he might have suffered a heart attack. Further tests are underway to determine the cause of death.’.. There is no further update at this time. If friends of his who knew him better than we did know more information then they are free to share it, but I’m going with what the official sites says at this time since so many have been asking for an update.”

Francis-n-Ban_Ki_MoonWith Pope’s Help, U.N. Bypasses Congress on Global Socialism – by Cliff Kincaid, Technocracy.news – “While the media pay great attention to the pope, little if any coverage has been given to the involvement of the Vatican in the U.N. “sustainable development” agenda that could radically affect the individual lives of ordinary Americans. The stated purpose of the Podesta panel’s report is to ‘transform economies through sustainable development.’.. It would be nice if the media asked Hillary about the involvement of her campaign chairman in developing this global socialist scheme… In addition to destroying the American system, the recommendations of this so-called high-level body, especially on the matter of “climate action,” could also have a dramatic impact on the lives of people around the world, including the poor, who need access to energy and real economic development to escape poverty.”

“The Guardian” Addresses Geoengineering And The California Drought(Actually, The Guardian Attacks the idea that Geoengineers could be involved in the Drought…) – by Dane Wigington and TheGuardian.com, GeoengineeringWatch.com – “The avalanche of awakening to the climate engineering insanity is beginning, all of us are needed to continue fueling the fire. By working together we have elevated the geoengineering issue to the point that it is becoming too big to hide. More and more mainstream sources are now compelled to address the issue in the attempt to do damage control. Such attempts will only have the effect of triggering an even more rapidly growing awareness and that is exactly what is happening. The new article below from The Guardian is yet another leap forward in the battle to fully expose climate engineering to the masses.”

End-is-Near-ishClimate Fanatics Run Into Public Relations Snag – by Pater Tenebrarum, ZeroHedge.com – “Last week, we happened across a press report about a group of climate scientists so eager to shut up their critics that they want to employ the State’s police, courts and jailers for the purpose. Specifically, a group of academic (and presumably tenured) climate alarmists supporting the “CAWG” theory (CAWG=”catastrophic anthropogenic global warming”) have written a letter to president Obama, attorney-general Lynch and OSTP director Holdren, demanding that so-called “climate deniers” (or the organizations allegedly supporting them) be prosecuted under the RICO act (you can see the document here (pdf) – already its first paragraph is “alarming”, as they inter alia brag about things they have incorrectly predicted to happen for more than 35 years, such as an increase in “extreme weather”).”

In “Sweeping” Interview, Putin Calls US Syria Strategy “Illegal”, Details Russia’s Support For Assad – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Until now, the US seemed content (and again, this isn’t so much a conspiracy theory as it is a simple assessment of readily observable facts) to bide its time and wait out Assad’s army. Try as he might, there simply was no way Assad was going to be able to hold out forever as fighting a multifront war is ultimately impossible even if, as was the case with Germany during World War II, the effort is backed by a vast military industrial complex. But Russia’s arrival at Latakia changed the calculus and now, the US must decide whether to join forces with Washington’s two fiercest foreign policy critics in order to preserve the “anything is better than ISIS” narrative, or else drop that narrative and admit publicly that the fall of Assad and the resultant BOP shift takes precedence over wiping out terrorism… ‘In my opinion, provision of military support to illegal structures runs counter to the principles of modern international law and the United Nations Charter,’ (Putin) said in an excerpt of an interview with U.S. television networks CBS and PBS released by the Kremlin.”

Contaminated-Organic_GrainsALERT: Certified Organic Food Grown in U.S. Found Contaminated with Glyphosate Herbicide – by Brian Shilhavy, GreenMedInfo.com – “Tropical Traditions decided to first test some commercial wheat products with wheat grown in Montana, North Dakota, and Canada. They sent the commercial samples to a well-known and respected laboratory to test for glyphosate… All tested positive for glyphosate residue. The range was from 0.07 mg/kg to 0.09 mg/kg. Keep in mind this is glyphosate found in non-GMO crops. For a GMO crop such as GMO soybeans, which are sprayed heavily with glyphosate, the range is typically between 3.3 and 5.7 mg/kg. (Source.).. Next, Tropical Traditions tested the USDA certified organic grains from suppliers they had been using, sourced mainly from western states such as Montana and Idaho. Sadly, the presence of glyphosate residue was found in organic wheat and other organic grains, including organic barley, oats, spelt, and einkorn. The range was from 0.03 to 0.06 mg/kg, just slightly lower than the conventional grains that were tested.”

Shaken_BabyDoctors Revisit Shaken Baby Syndrome, Rename It “Abusive Head Trauma” – by Catherine Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “What I’ve underscored above, I believe, is crucial to establishing if physical abuse, especially the shaken baby type, has occurred—something I’ve written about before. For a brain to swell, bleed on the surface and have bleeding behind the eyes in an infant, a child wouldn’t have to be shaken extremely hard or have its head banged against some hard object like a wall. Infants’ necks are notoriously ‘wobbly’ and everyone who is handed an infant to hold is cautioned about holding the neck/head correctly so it doesn’t ‘flop’ and cause damage, i.e., a possible broken neck. That, alone, in infants is basic anatomy and physiology! However, expert witness MDs who testify to SBS without physical damage evidence probably even could challenge the laws of gravity!.. Because of the medical profession’s dogmatic and skewed insistence regarding SBS diagnoses, parents and others—child caregivers, baby sitters—have been charged with, prosecuted and imprisoned for killing infants in their care while maintaining their innocence. However, one MD, who testified at an SBS trial, has come to the realization that he may have been wrong and is going about studying the mechanics of SBS to delineate and clarify it medically and probably legally… That MD is Dr Patrick Barnes, a neuroradiologist, formerly at Children’s Hospital in Boston, now at Stanford University. During the SBS trial for European nanny Louise Woodward, held in Boston, Dr Barnes was adamant about his testimony that Woodward had shaken 8-month-old Matthew Eapen. So what changed the doctor’s mind?” – Link: A Parent’s Guide: What to do if your child dies after vaccination – by Catherine Frompovich, ActivistPost.com

Informed parents, doctors and lawmakers fight mandatory HPV vaccination law in Rhode Island – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “Rhode Islanders aren’t pleased with the fact that their hired public servants are attempting to usurp their parental authority and medical autonomy. Nearly 100 people gathered at the Cumberland Public Library, north of Providence, on August 17 to protest the decision, calling on newly-appointed DOH head Nicole Alexander-Scott to take a step back and stop trying to force a dangerous and unproven vaccine on their children… ‘Mandating a vaccine that is attached to school attendance that is not a public health threat or transferable in the classroom is not okay,’ stated Aimee Gardiner, co-leader of the grassroots group Rhode Islanders Against Mandated HPV Vaccinations, in a statement to The New American. ‘It is bad public policy, and it is a bad use of power from the Rhode Island Department of Health.’ “Latakia_Airport-is-it-ModifiedThis Is The Satellite Image That Supposedly Proves The Presence Of Russian “Troops And Aircraft” In Syria – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – ” ‘The scale of the construction goes even further. A large area of ground has been cleared in many different parts of the air base. There are pallets and crates everywhere. Trucks are visible driving into the site. The image drives home the implication of all those flights and shipments heading to Syria: Russia is substantially expanding its involvement.’.. Is there “no doubt” as the author claims this is happening? We leave it to readers to decide. One thing that is certain is that earlier today it was the US which first admitted it had spec ops in Syria in what could be the most inconvenient Freudian slip in recent “proxy war” history, and then was promptly forced to retract it.”

Cop-Dog_Attack“They Fed Me to an Animal” Cops Held Two Victims at Gunpoint While Forcing K9 to “Eat Them” – by John Vibes, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “The other officer on the scene, Deputy Gerald “Gerry” Wengert, participated in the attack and allegedly instigated the whole thing. Interestingly enough, Wengert was accused of ordering his dog to attack a suspect in 2013 but was later acquitted of the charge… Pellegrino watched in horror as his friend was attacked by the dog… ‘I was in horror, we weren’t resisting and we weren’t doing anything so I was in shock that they would sic the dog on my friend,’ he said… ‘One said, ‘I think he’s ready to eat again,’ and someone said, ‘Oh, I think he’s still hungry,’ Pellegrino told reporters… He then explained that both officers actually held his body so the dog could get a better bite… ‘Wengert lifted my leg in front of the dog’s mouth so the dog attached to my leg. Acevedo was behind me with the dog and Wengert was to my left with the assault rifle pointing at me … I just grabbed onto the gravel and started screaming,’ he explained.”

Germany seeks ban on GMOs to protect its citizens and environment – by Daniel Barker, NaturalNews.com – “German Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt has stated that he intends to make use of the EU’s “opt-out” policy to ensure that the country remains free of GMO crop cultivation in an effort to protect its citizens and environment from the consequences of the Frankenfood industry… Ministry spokesman Christian Fronczak said: ‘The German government is clear in that it seeks a nationwide cultivation ban. There’s resistance from all sides, from the public to the farmers.’.. Individual regions in the country have until September 11 to decide whether or not they want to participate in the ban. The German government will then have until October 3 to inform the EU of its decision regarding the “opt-out” rule.”

The West is trying to portray Vladimir Putin as an enemy and dictator who cracks down on domestic opposition, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview on Tuesday – from SputnikNews.com – ” ‘Ever since the coup in Ukraine President Putin has been viewed by western media as an enemy, a czar, a dictator clamping down on the opposition, someone who came to power in an undemocratic way even though he was elected as a result a popular vote recognized by the West. No longer. This is what the western propaganda campaign is all about,’ Bashar Assad added… He also said that the Western powers were working hard to bring about regime changes in Syria, Russia and other countries… ‘They do not recognize others as partners and sovereign states. All they want is to replace someone who they don’t like with one who would be serving their interests, not his own country’s,’ Assad emphasized.

Five Things the Media Won’t Report About the Refugee Crisis – 5min:28

MH17-smoking_gunMH17 — DUTCH PREPARE MISSILE ATTACK ON MOSCOW – by John Helmer, JohnHelmer.net – “…an Australian coroners’ report on the identification and forensic testing of the bodies carried out in The Netherlands reveals post-mortem evidence to show that in their public statements the Dutch government officials have been lying about metal evidence they claim to have found. This evidence has not only been buried with the passengers’ remains. It has been buried by the Dutch Government and by coroners in the UK and Australia, who are now legally required to investigate independently what caused the deaths of citizens in their jurisdiction. All are withholding the CT scans, X-rays, autopsy and other post-mortem results, including metallurgical assays, the documentation of which accompanied the coffins of the aircraft’s victims from The Netherlands to their homelands.”

BLACK BOXES, BLACK HOLES IN THE MH17 INVESTIGATION – WHY ARE THE FRENCH SO SWIFT AND REVEALING, THE DUTCH SO SLOW AND UNREVEALING? – by John Helmer, JohnHelmer.net – “…the Ukrainian ATC operator at Dniepropetrovsk, Dnipro Control, was recorded as giving a route change clearance to MH17 but receiving no reply. The Dutch say they have come across no evidence, no sound from the cockpit, no Mayday or distress signal, no noise in those one to four seconds. The FDR is also reported by the DSB as recording all flight parameters moving normally and predictably until the recording suddenly stops. That’s NOTHING… In truth, can the destruction of the airframe and the deaths of all 298 souls on board have occurred in four seconds, without a recorded sound of any kind?”

Vaccines-For_The_ChildrenComas, seizures and deaths now coming to Rhode Island middle school students as HPV vaccines are mandated by death-worshipping state legislature – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “Isn’t it reassuring to know that Ms. Tricia and her colleagues “feel” good about HPV vaccines? It’s more likely that they’re feeling good about the kickbacks they are receiving from Merck and GSK for pushing these deadly shots on innocent children. In either case, it’s feelings rather than facts that are driving this vaccine brigade… Meanwhile, reports continue to pour in about children suffering extreme side effects after receiving one or more of the three-part Gardasil vaccine series. The Toronto Star actually ran a series or stories earlier this year highlighting a number of vaccine-injury cases involving Gardasil, although the story was so truthful and jarring that the establishment forced it into retraction.”

Former Merck rep explains how mandatory vaccination is pushed for Big Pharma profit, not public health – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “After moving to Europe and having her first son, she decided to move back to the U.S. to live in San Francisco, California. She didn’t trust pharmaceutical companies, but she did take her son to a wellness visit. The doctor pushed for several vaccinations for her son, who was at the precious age of six months. The doctor grew angry with Vaughan because she asked to see the vaccine inserts. After storming out of the office, the angry doctor sent a nurse in to tell Vaughan that she and her son were not welcome back… As she started to raise awareness about the risks of vaccines, she began to realize a more sinister plot: pharmaceutical companies want to use the force of government to mandate vaccine schedules on all children. In 1952, that vaccine schedule included about seven doses. Today, the CDC’s vaccine schedule includes up to 49 doses before a child turns six years old. There are hundreds of vaccines currently being developed. It has become a game where pharmaceutical companies profit from the fears of disease instead of actually providing education to improve public health through nutrition. Profits are made by poisoning the blood of children with toxic adjuvants like aluminum… She has been repeatedly intimidated. Her house has been broken into several times since her rally against SB 277 at the California state capitol. Police told her that her home was likely “tapped” during one break-in. Her computer was tampered with in another break-in. Despite the intimidation, Vaughan continues to speak out. She founded the non-profit Council for Vaccine Safety, which strives to “increase public awareness and education on the risk of vaccines while advocating for safer vaccines.” (emph. added)

Corbyn blames BRITAIN and the US for the rise of ISIS: Labour leader rejects bombing Syria because it will spark more ‘mayhem’ – by Tom McTague, Dailymail.co.uk – “● Jeremy Corbyn said ISIS was created ‘in part’ by western interventions; ● Claimed Western arms and money was ending up with the terror group; ● Labour leader confirmed he would not support any bombing against ISIS; ● He said he would make Britain safer by ‘becoming a force for human rights’; ● Said he could protect the UK by ‘saying we understand diversity of faith’ ”

GMO crops totally banned in Russia… powerful nation blocks Monsanto’s agricultural imperialism and mass poisoning of the population – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “This puts Russia in a powerful position of producing nearly 100% non-GMO foods for both domestic consumption and export. Most consumers around the world, when given a choice, prefer to eat non-GMO foods. In the United States, the criminally-run food industry front group — the Grocery Manufacturers of America — is desperately trying to block all GMO food labeling in order to keep consumers in the dark about what they’re eating. Nearly the entire mainstream media, likewise, has also been bought off by the biotech industry and refuses to cover the truth about GMOs. (Which is why sites like GMO.news are becoming so popular among independent thinkers.

The Real Reason Why RAW Milk Is Illegal – from HealthFreedoms.org – “The CDC states, “While it is possible to get foodborne illnesses from many different foods, raw milk is one of the riskiest of all.” But is it so?.. According to the CDC, 48 million people (1 in 6 in the U.S.) get sick by contaminated food annually. In just one year, 2009-2010, there have been 1,527 outbreaks, 29,444 illnesses, 1,184 hospitalizations and 23 deaths. And the food that caused it varies from shellfish and eggs, to sprouts and vine-stalk vegetables… This year there were Salmonella outbreaks linked to cucumbers, pork, frozen chicken and frozen tuna; last year E. coli outbreaks linked to clover sprouts and ground beef; and Listeria outbreaks linked to ice cream, caramel apples, and cheese between 2014-2015… Most of these cases have one thing in common: the contaminated produce was from a large farm or company, often sourced from a different state or even country… That seems high risk. But we get a little warning sign on the package and are allowed to make our own choices. And what about milk?”

3D_Printer_for_Living_ThingsIsraeli scientists can fabricate DNA evidence – by Rasha B. Foda, ShareEverything.com – “Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence, undermining the credibility of what has been considered the gold standard of proof in criminal cases… The scientists fabricated blood and saliva samples containing DNA from a person other than the donor of the blood and saliva. They also showed that if they had access to a DNA profile in a database, they could construct a sample of DNA to match that profile without obtaining any tissue from that person… ‘You can just engineer a crime scene,’ said Dan Frumkin, lead author of the paper, which has been published online by the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics. ‘Any biology undergraduate could perform this.’ ”

Yemini_Civilians_runWest’s Proxy Jihadist Terror Network Uncovered in Yemen – by Finian Cunningham, InformationClearingHouse.info – “…Yemeni sources report that alongside the fallen troops from the Gulf states are allied mercenaries belonging to Al Qaeda-linked Islamist militia. The mercenaries are believed to have been infiltrated into Yemen after receiving receiving training in set up in Saudi Arabia… Given that the United States and Britain are openly supplying the Saudi-led Gulf coalition with fighter jets, bombs and logistics, the array of forces makes for a stark conclusion: the Western states are working in Yemen in direct alliance with jihadist mercenaries. Why this alarming reality is not more readily recognised is simply because Western news media are obfuscating the situation in Yemen… Yemen can therefore be seen as illustrating the fullest expression yet of the covert relation between Washington and its Western allies and the proxy role of Islamist terror groups… In both…Libya and Syria, the Western nexus with the jihadists is vicarious and diffuse, allowing for a degree of official denial of any such collusion… However, what is emerging in Yemen is that the Western states and their Arab client regimes are openly being seen as on the side of the Al Qaeda-linked terror network.”

Genocide in Yemen – by Stephen Lendman, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Yemen is Obama’s war – cold-blooded genocidal slaughter and mass destruction, planned long before conflict began in late March, using Saudi Arabia, UAE, other Gulf states and Egypt to do his dirty work… Terror bombing residential neighborhoods, hospitals, schools and other non-military related targets continues… US-Saudi enforced blockade prevents enough food, medical supplies, fuel, clean water and other essentials from reaching desperate people in need. Human Rights Watch said what’s ongoing “may amount to starvation of civilians as a weapon of warfare” – genocide by deprivation… According to Save the Children’s Mark Kaye, “(a)t the moment we only have enough fuel in the north and center of the country for the next six weeks.” Hospitals still operating lack fuel to run to run generators “for their work.”.. UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien calls the scale of human suffering in Yemen “almost incomprehensible.”.. Over 20 million Yemenis may perish from hunger, thirst and/or lack of medical treatment for serious injuries and diseases.”

GOP candidates united in disdain for Obama, support for IsraelTrump-Bush-Not_Pointing_Fingers – In second Republican debate, Donald Trump takes on Jeb Bush over the war in Iraq, says he’ll ‘get along’ with Russia’s Putin – by Rebecca Shimoni Stoil, TimesOfIsrael.com – “Restoring US might and strengthening allies was a common theme in the closing statements. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee offered a similar endorsement in his remarks. ‘At the end of my presidency I would like to believe that the world would be a safe place, and there wouldn’t be the threats, not only to the US, but to Israel and our allies, because we would have the most incredible well-trained, well-equipped, well-prepared military in the history of mankind,’ he said. ‘And they would know that the commander-in-chief would never send them to a mission without all the resources necessary, but people wouldn’t bully us anymore because they would know that that would be an invitation to their destruction.’ ”

Better Than Chemo: Turmeric Kills Cancer Not Patients – by Sayer Ji, WakingTimes.com – “Researchers from the United Kingdom have just made a major breakthrough in cancer research by demonstrating for the first time in patient-derived colorectal cell lines that a turmeric extract (curcumin) is not only an effective adjunct agent to enhance conventional chemotherapy, but that it may be even more effective on its own… Published this month in Cancer Letters and titled, “Curcumin inhibits cancer stem cell phenotypes in ex vivo models of colorectal liver metastases, and is clinically safe and tolerable in combination with FOLFOX chemotherapy,” the study evaluated the so-called “diet-derived agent” curcumin — the primary polyphenol in turmeric — as a possible adjunct to enhance conventional treatment of colorectal cancer with chemotherapy.”

Putin-Obama-at-a-distancePeace in Syria? It’s Putin’s fault – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “All one needs to know about the intellectual caliber of the Obama administration is that it is still pondering whether to persist in “ignoring” Russian President Vladimir Putin, or invest in a real partnership to solve the Syrian geopolitical/humanitarian drama. After all, when in doubt between diplomacy or chaos, the Beltway weapon of choice still veers towards the simplistic group think uniting neocons and neoliberalcons: regime change… And then there’s the non-stop The Russians Are Coming! hysteria — the Cold War 2.0 remix, now switching from the invasion/military occupation of Ukraine to the invasion/military occupation of Syria. The White House — which, same as the Pentagon, does not do irony — actually appealed to the Kremlin to behave in a “more constructive” way side-by-side with the spectacularly inefficient coalition of the dodgy opportunists which is in thesis fighting ISIS/ISIL/Daesh… White House spokesman Josh Earnest clarified that when Obama decides that the Sisyphean task of picking up the phone and dialing K for Kremlin is actually in America’s interests, he will do it. The Shakespearean doubt may last days — even as Putin reaffirmed, via Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov, he was always open to dialogue.”

Israel up in arms over the Corbyn threat – by Neve Gordon, MiddleEastEye.net – “Following Jeremy Corbyn’s election as Labour’s new leader, the news in Israel was bleak. ‘New Labor Leader in Britain: Anti-Zionist’ read the headline of Yisrael Hayom, the most widely read newspaper in Israel, which is owned by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s longtime supporter, casino king Sheldon Adelson. The subtitle explained: ‘Bad Surprise: The newly elected head of opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, who in the past called for a dialogue with ‘friends’ from Hamas and Hezbollah, is known as a radical lefty, an admirer of Karl Marx.’.. The article goes on to claim that Corbyn has donated money to Holocaust deniers and notes with alarm that, as head of the opposition, he has the right to receive sensitive security and diplomatic updates.”

Cuban_Homeless-cigarCuba accused of rounding up thousands of homeless and JAILING them before Pope visit – CUBA has been accused of “social cleansing” before the Pope visits after police allegedly rounded up thousands of homeless people and threw them in jail – by Scott Campbell – “The Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation claims an operation is underway in Havana, Holguin and Santiago – cities the pontiff will visit between today and Tuesday… The activism group says authorities have jailed ‘thousands of beggars, panhandlers, ragamuffins, the mentally ill and other vulnerable wanderers, most of them homeless’… It also alleges that the operation was approved by Cuba’s highest authorities… A statement from the commission said: ‘This ‘social cleansing’ intends to remove them from the view of pilgrims, foreign journalists and other visitors’… The group has now publicly asked Pope Francis to intervene and seek the release of those picked up.”

obama-marines-CampPendleton-2013-captionUS Seeks Occupation as US Fighters Flood Syria – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “US corporate-funded policy think-tank, the Brookings Institution, published a June 2015 paper titled, “Deconstructing Syria: Towards a regionalized strategy for a confederal country.” The signed and dated open-conspiracy to divide, destroy, invade, then incrementally occupy Syria using no-fly-zones and both US and British special forces is now demonstrably underway… The paper would lay out in no uncertain terms that (emphasis added): ‘The idea would be to help moderate elements establish reliable safe zones within Syria once they were able. American, as well as Saudi and Turkish and British and Jordanian and other Arab forces would act in support, not only from the air but eventually on the ground via the presence of special forces as well. The approach would benefit from Syria’s open desert terrain which could allow creation of buffer zones that could be monitored for possible signs of enemy attack through a combination of technologies, patrols, and other methods that outside special forces could help Syrian local fighters set up… ‘Were Assad foolish enough to challenge these zones, even if he somehow forced the withdrawal of the outside special forces, he would be likely to lose his air power in ensuing retaliatory strikes by outside forces, depriving his military of one of its few advantages over ISIL. Thus, he would be unlikely to do this.”

When “Virtuous Debt” Turns Ferociously Vicious: The Mother Of All Corporate Margin Calls On Deck – by Bawerk.net, ZeroHedge.com – “In addition, we know that financial corporations are flush with cash, or excess reserves held at the Federal Reserve. Throughout the various quantitative easing (QE) programs conducted by the Federal Reserve, commercial banks have been force fed cash as ducks on a foie gras farm. This has swelled their excess reserves to the unprecedented, and what would be thought unimaginable only few years’ back, level of US$2.6 trillion… With all this cash the system should be, again according to the perma-bulls, more than ready to withstand the shock from the ongoing global deleveraging, a stronger dollar, emerging market blow-ups and the forthcoming US recession… We beg to differ. When it comes to excess reserves they are most likely already “spoken” as a form of collateral in shadow banking chains. While the initial effect from QE on the shadow banking system was massive deflationary shock as all the high quality securities used in re-hypothecated collateral chains were soaked up by the Federal Reserve, it is a safe bet that excess reserves has to some extent filled that void.”

TV-DominantHow TV Affects Your Brain Chemistry for the Worst – by Heather Callaghan, TruthStreamMedia.com – “Last time, I touched on stress hormones. Volumes have been researched and written about hormones – the damaging effects of chronic streaming hormone release; but very rarely does anyone think to analyze that watching television might make up a good bulk of that stress. So it would appear that chronic stress happens throughout the day while trying to work or survive, and then continues with entertainment – more like en-train-ment. Maybe television should be considered in a dietary sense – something that is ingested and can be overdone… Cortisol is necessary for good health but the amounts released in the Western world are brinking on PTSD levels and can lead to impaired brain function, damaged thyroid, obesity, blood sugar problems, chronic fatigue, immune dysfunction, impaired healing, insomnia and weakness. (source) Trauma can lead to brain fog and shrinking of the hippocampus – the brain center responsible for creating new, time-sequenced memories. Adrenal fatigue is the disorder du jour – could television play a role?”

9/11 Revisited: Declassified FBI Files Reveal New Details About ‘The Five Israelis’ – by Greg Fernandez Jr., 21stCenturyWire.com – ” ‘On May 29th, 2015, John Massaria filed a FOIA request in attempt to retrieve the data stored on the 16 computers seized by the FBI from the ‘Urban Moving Systems’ warehouse in New Jersey.’.. John Massaria asked for the data on the hardrives but instead, was given the following FBI Report –doc-1 (141 pages), Police Report (4 pages), and FOIA-2 – FOIA-6. Special thanks to Ken Doc for making me aware of these files. Within three days of filing the FOIA request for the data on the Urban Moving Systems’ hardrives, John Massaria was given the declassified files.”

Police_Marksman-FergusonFerguson and the Second Amendment – by Shahid Buttar, Truth-Out.org – “The discrimination pervading the Second Amendment’s recognition, and how militarized police threaten its promise, appear evident in Ferguson, where a politically and demographically diverse coalition is emerging to defend it… Sidestepping partisan battle-lines in an ideological debate, this analysis exposes how liberals and libertarians alike can find common ground on Second Amendment principles. It also exposes constitutional arguments supporting the Black Lives Matter movement that few observers have recognized. All US citizens share an interest in restoring the Second Amendment’s limits on the militarization of the police.”

Mind Control Programs Exposed – Your Thoughts Are Not Your Own (w/Videos)– by Vic Bishop, WakingTimes.com – “The supposed goals of these research initiatives are to understand the cause of and to improve treatment of brain disorders, to create neuromatic and neurorobotic technologies that advance developments in Artificial Intelligence and supercomputers, and also to uncover the patterns of neural activity that produce human cognition, decision making and actions. In 2014, over $300 million in public and private funding was made in support of the US BRAIN initiative, and EUR 8.3 million was invested in the European Union’s Human Brain Project… Simultaneously, technologies are being developed to create a new brain-computer interface, which will be able to manipulate the brain using “neural dust,” light beamed from outside the skull, and by implanting memories by altering neuron DNAThe human mind is an electrical device. If they reverse engineer the brain to figure out how to invade and program the electrical mind, it can be taken over and anyone can theoretically be controlled remotely, and the affected persons would have little to no clue what was going on… In the interviews below, Neil Sanders, author of Your Thoughts are Not Your Own, and Steven Jacobson, author of Mind Control in the U.S., expose evidence of officially sanctioned mind control programs and the effects of media programming on human behavior.”

Bryce_Williams-threatensIs The Virginia Shooting Hoax Blowing Up in the MSM’s Face? – by Joe Wright, ActivistPost.com – “Actually, this is an even bigger warning to the billionaire “philanthropists” who back aggressive gun control initiatives and are likely backing these staged “events.” You’ve hired horrible actors. You’re going to get busted unless you back off. But, alas, we know your allegiance to the UN Small Arms Treaty requires you to push forward despite a growing number who know your game… The latest reporter shooting hoax in Virginia is getting so easily torn apart by the conspiracy research community that the media’s emotional staging of actors is becoming absurd…The latest discovery is that Alison Parker’s alleged fiancé Chris Hurst, who has only eight social media photos of him with Alison, is probably just her “TV” boyfriend. A guy named Daniel Wulz has been outed by facial recognition as her real-world boyfriend.”

19 Intriguing Coincidences Surrounding the Virginia Shooting – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “…without getting too deep into what I believe could likely be another staged shooting event to advance the federal government’s gun control agenda, let’s just zip through a list of oddities that every single person must reconcile surrounding the recent Virginia TV reporter shooting of Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by alleged shooter Vester Lee Flanagan. Here are 19 oddities to fill your brain with. Perhaps you can explain away some of these. If you can, more power to you but good luck tackling the entire list. Ultimately, it’s not about one person being right or wrong but about lining yourself up with truth. Keep in mind that all of these things are happening at once and you have to let your natural instincts, intuition and common sense kick in and take this information in and then file it under one of two categories: orchestrated event or coincidence … or perhaps I don’t know. You decide…”

Two Views of the “Virginia Shooting” with Anomalies to Boggle the Mind:

DAILY SHOOTER: Made-For-TV – Virginia News Crew Gunned Down Live On Air – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “This latest ‘Truman Show’ shooting takes this all-American genre to a whole new level. According to reports, the shooter posted his own video of the shooting on social media – on his Facebook account and on Twitter. Watch his video, shot low-res on either an iPhone or Galaxy phone (vertical rectangular format) and not on an HD GoPro as CNN and others wrongly claimed today… As it’s still an open investigation, it should be fair to ask the following: did the alleged shooter really shoot this video, or was it someone else? Have any witnesses actually ID’d Flanagan at the scene of this alleged double homicide? Clearly, the media have already decided that it was Vester Flanagan. See the shooter’s own video here…”

Bernie-Mr_ProgressiveSaint Bernie: US presidential candidate: I would continue assassination drone programfrom PressTV.ir – ” ‘I think we have to use drones very, very selectively and effectively. That has not always been the case,’ Sanders said… ‘What you can argue is that there are times and places where drone attacks have been effective,’ he added… Former US drone operator Brandon Bryant, who was involved in the killing of more than 1600 people, revealed earlier this year that aerial strikes are conducted with complete uncertainty… Bryant, who worked for almost five years in America’s secret drone program bombing targets in Afghanistan and other countries, such as Pakistan and Iraq, said operators lacked visibility and were not sure about the identity of the people they were shooting at… ‘We see silhouette, shadows of people, and we kill those shadows,’ he said.”

U.S. Police Routinely Travel to Israel to Learn Methods of Brutality and Repression – by Justin Gardner, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “At least 300 high-ranking U.S. sheriffs and police from all over the country, as well as FBI and US Customs and Border Protection agents, have traveled to Israel to learn first-hand the most efficient means of subduing populations. The purported reason is counterterrorism, but protests and crowd control methods are commonly discussed… Police are not learning from the Israeli criminal law sector that deals with Jewish residents. U.S. police are learning from Israel’s military justice system, which controls Palestinians through paramilitary and counterinsurgency tactics. Residents of Gaza and the West Bank live in what is essentially a giant prison camp, where oppression and brutality from the IDF is a way of life. The use of excessive or deadly force for crowd control is rarely questioned… Three organizations are responsible for sending U.S. cops to Israel for training—the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the American Jewish Committee’s Project Interchange and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. The ADL insulted victims of police brutality last month when it honored the St. Louis Police Department (SLPD) just days ahead of the anniversary of Michael Brown’s killing. The SLPD was the first department to enroll in ADL’s training program.

Facebook has secretly been spying on your medical internet searches – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “In their study the authors found that 91 percent of Internet pages containing health-related information relay the URL to third parties, “often unbeknownst to the user,” and in 70 percent of cases, the URL “contains sensitive information such as ‘HIV’ or ‘cancer’ which is sufficient to tip off these third parties that you have been searching for information related to a specific disease.” That, according to Tim Libert, of the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, author of the study, which shows how dismissive Internet surfers tend to be when it comes to their health privacy online… As reported by Blacklisted News, citing the study: ‘It doesn’t matter whether you search for health-related topics using Google or supposed privacy-focused search engines like DuckDuckGo, Facebook is still likely to find out about it. That’s because websites like the CDC’s HIV information page contains “share” and “like” buttons for Facebook, and that’s all it takes to let the social media site know that you’ve visited the page, even if you never click either of those buttons. Sites like WebMD share information with as many as 34 different domains.’ ”

Who Would Really Want to Live in the Eugenics Record Office? – by Aaron and Melissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “And apparently it’s for sale (not that the realtor mentioned anything in her glowing description of the property that it was built by Mrs. E. H. Harriman, a prominent eugenicist and mother of Skull and Bones alumni diplomat Averill Harriman, specifically to house the Eugenics Record Office either). In fact, there’s only one article that shows the modern day house and links it to eugenics, but it’s a completely misleading fluff piece titled, ‘Rich Cribs: Cold Spring Laboratory was to fill this home with eugenics records.’.. No, it’s wasn’t going to be filled with those records. It was filled with them… Nowhere in the ads for the house or that article is it mentioned that this place is directly responsible in large part for the passage of eugenics laws across America that resulted in the forced sterilization of tens of thousands of people… a heinous act based on racism and elitism passing itself off as “science.”.. But really…who would actually want to live in the former Eugenics Record Office? The whole place seemed haunted by its negative, ugly past. In the brief moments we were there, the feeling was palpable.”

Bryce_Williams-carPolice Order BBC Journalists to Delete Footage of Virginia Shooter’s Car Crash – by Carey Wedler, ActivistPost.com – “A Virginia State Police officer reportedly censored two BBC journalists following Wednesday’s tragic shooting that took the lives of Alison Parker and Adam Ward. After Vester Lee Flanagan (AKA Bryce Williams) opened fire at a local shopping center, killing the 24-year-old local reporter and the 27-year-old cameraman, he led police on a pursuit before he ran his vehicle off the highway and crashed. Police found him suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Flanagan was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died… BBC journalists Franz Strasser and Tara McKelvey were reporting from the scene of the crash when one of the officers approached the pair and ordered them to delete their footage. “Just at the scene of the suspects [sic] shooting on I-66. Police told me to delete footage or lose camera,” Strasser tweeted. “Reason for confiscating camera was that it was evidence. Threatened to tow the car because it was illegally parked,” he said in a follow-up tweet about an hour later.

A wig, license plates, six Glock magazines and a ‘to do’ list: The ‘getaway kit’ found in Vester Flanagan’s crashed rental car after he (allegedly) committed suicide – from AP via Dailymail.co.uk – “Flanagan also had a Glock pistol and holster with him, believed to be the weapon he used during the killings, as well as several clips of ammunition… Police documents reveal that officers found a ‘briefcase w/3 license plates, wig, shawl, umbrella, sunglasses,’ as well as a black hat… The (alleged) collection of items suggests that Flanagan was intending to disguise himself and live in hiding after killing his former colleagues, while the extra bullets suggest he was planning other attacks.”

Are Russians Sending Military Support To Syria? Potential For Conflict With NATO? – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Still, an actual Russian force – complete with equipment and personnel – would be a major development in the fight against ISIS. The technical knowledge, the military capability, and the political support would provide Assad with an invaluable resource in locating and eliminating the terrorists… In addition, the presence of Russian military personnel on the ground in Syria and Russian aircraft in Syria’s skies might also serve to provide both a warning and a reason to exercise more caution on the part of the NATO “coalition” and the United States that are currently bombing Syria… YNet reports that the Obama administration is fully aware of the Russian plans but that it has yet to announce its reaction to those plans… While a Russian military presence in the Syrian capital will undoubtedly provide an important boost to the Syrian military’s battle against ISIS and other Western-backed terrorists, it will also provide the world with the potential for direct military confrontation between the two major world powers, both of them armed with nuclear weapons.”

Lies You Will Hear As The Economic Collapse Progresses – by Brandon Smith, ActivistPost.com – “It is undeniable; the final collapse triggers are upon us, triggers alternative economists have been warning about since the initial implosion of 2008. In the years since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd and ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets and as the situation in markets becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase. This might seem counter-intuitive to many. You would think that the more obvious the economic collapse becomes, the more alternative analysts will be vindicated and the more awake and aware the average person will be. Not necessarily… In fact, the mainstream spin machine is going into high speed the more negative data is exposed and absorbed into the markets. If you know your history, then you know that this is a common tactic by the establishment elite to string the public along with false hopes so that they do not prepare or take alternative measures while the system crumbles around their ears. At the onset of the Great Depression the same strategies were used. Consider if you’ve heard similar quotes to these in the mainstream news over the past couple months: John Maynard Keynes in 1927: “We will not have any more crashes in our time.(emph. added)

Fox_Lake_illinois-Circus‘G.I. Joe’ Shooting: Massive Multi-Agency, Martial Law Drill Underway in Fox Lake, Illinois – by 21stCenturyWire.com – “Within 90 minutes, a large perimeter “envelope” was set up and Martial Law was essentially put into place throughout Fox Lake. Local schools were put on “lock-down” and all 10,000 residents of Fox Lake were quickly ordered to “Shelter In Place” by the authorities – for the entire day. Teams of heavily armed police with semi-automatic assault rifles, dressed in body armor and full tactical gear then began conducting house-to-house searches claiming they were looking for the three suspects… Police made sure a select few of these house searches were filmed from designated helicopters overhead, and while watching the coverage of the house searches, it was obvious that police house raid were being choreographed for the TV – so police on the ground were being directed in accordance to where the overhead film crews were positioned – to capture the best possible shots of their militarized operation. As expected, CNN continually praised the police, remarking how ‘dangerous’ the situation was and about, ‘The potential for them [suspects] going into a family house and taking hostages.’ ”

Lawsuit Accuses Federal Government of Withholding Info on GMO Crops for 10 Years – by Derrick Broze, ActivistPost.com – “The CFS accuses APHIS of failing to respond within a timely manner to at least 29 of their FOIA requests or appeals. The lawsuit is the center’s latest attempt to force APHIS to respond to FOIA requests and to order the agency to ‘stop its practice of failing to respond to FOIA requests related to GE crops.’.. Cristina Stella, staff attorney for the Center for Food Safety, says that APHIS has a history of inadequate regulation of GMO crops. “In the absence of thorough government oversight, public access to information about these crops becomes all the more critical,” Stella said. ‘This lawsuit is necessary to stop APHIS from continuing to ignore its duty to provide the public with information that affects farmers, communities, and the environment.’.. Stella also says that the longer APHIS fails to regulate the GMO crops, the more the environment will face damage, including transgenic contamination of nearby crops, pesticide drift, and endangerment of protected species.”

More Race War Psyops: #BlackLivesMatter Activist Arrested for Tweeting “Kill All the White People” – by Melissa Dykes, TheDailySheeple.com – “But let’s take a step back for a moment and look at this thing… The Tweet, you will notice was just sent September 2nd at 4:45 pm… According to the police document below, authorities were alerted about the Twitter threat at 4:43 pmIf time stamps told it all at face value, it would appear as if the threat was called in two minutes before the Tweet was actually sent… Even with a few hours difference for server issues that some people claim can periodically happen on Twitter which mess with the timestamp (and somehow always seem to only affect controversial Tweets), still. That was awfully quick… Regardless of what happened there, it’s interesting how a Tweet with only two retweets and two favorites after an hour of being posted (which could likely be by the same two accounts that retweeted it) became such a huge deal so fast that a multi-agency manhunt went down over the “threat,” the guy was apparently caught on the same day, and the story has since blown up all over the media.”

The Vaccine Hoax is Over. Documents from UK reveal 30 Years of Coverup – by Andrew Baker, NSNBC.me – “The CDC is obviously acting against the health of the American people. But the threat to the lives of the American people posed by the CDC’s behavior does not stop there. It participated in designed pandemic laws that are on the books in every state in the US, which arrange for the government to use military to force unknown, untested vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and “medical” treatments on the entire country if it declares a pandemic emergency… Not to put to fine a point on this, but it’s clear now that the CDC should not be involved in any way with public health… Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know that vaccines are not a miracle of modern medicine. Any medical or government authority which insists vaccines prevent diseases is either ignorant of government documents (and endless studies) revealing the exact opposite or of the CDC’s attempts to hide the truth about vaccines from the public, or means harm to the public… Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know the vaccine schedule is a hoax.”

mike_Adams3The United Nations 2030 Agenda decoded: It’s a blueprint for the global enslavement of humanity under the boot of corporate masters – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “In the interests of helping wake up humanity, I’ve decided to translate the 17 points of this 2030 agenda so that readers everywhere can understand what this document is really calling for. To perform this translation, you have to understand how globalists disguise their monopolistic agendas in “feel good” language… Here’s the point-by-point translation. Notice carefully that nowhere does this document state that “achieving human freedom” is one of its goals. Nor does it explain HOW these goals are to be achieved. As you’ll see here, every single point in this UN agenda is to be achieved through centralized government control and totalitarian mandates that resemble communism.”

Could US state sanctions on Iran unravel nuke deal? – US critics of the nuclear agreement with Iran are turning to the 50 states as it becomes increasingly obvious that Congress won’t be able to kill the deal – by Julian Pecquet, Al-Monitor.com – “Pruitt and Schuette argue that states have a free hand to act as they see fit because the Obama administration did not craft the deal as a treaty subject to congressional ratification that would make it the “supreme law of the land.” Others question that assertion, pointing in particular to a 2000 Supreme Court case that threw out Massachusetts sanctions on Burma because they infringed on the federal power to conduct foreign affairs… Under the deal “’You’re running into a situation in which there can be foreign investment in Iran’s energy sector or a host of other things, so you’re going to have a situation in which the states are actually doing more than the federal law is,’ said Tyler Cullis, a sanctions expert with the pro-deal National Iranian American Council. ‘And to the extent that there is a conflict between those two, there is a presumption that federal law rules the day.’.. There’s little doubt, however, that the states can pass sanctions under a 2010 law — the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act — because Congress, perhaps anticipating a controversial deal, explicitly carved out a role for the states. The law calls upon the federal government to ‘support the decision of any state or local government that for moral, prudential, or reputational reasons’ divests from Iran.”

Statistician Finds Proof That Our Elections Are a Sham – by Joshua Krause, ActivistPost.com – “Beth Clarkson, chief statistician for Wichita State’s National Institute for Aviation Research, said last week that she noticed results for the last several elections in the state failed to add up. ‘If we’re not being counted accurately, we’re losing our right to vote without even being aware of it…’ Clarkson has sued the state of Kansas for the power to examine the voter tapes, which record every stroke a voter casts on the machines… ‘I don’t understand why those patterns are there, the patterns are very definitely real. But we don’t know what’s causing them or why they’re there. They do fit what would be expected if election fraud is occurring, and that’s very concerning.’.. Well isn’t that a big surprise? What’s also not surprising is how the authorities in Kansas are reacting to her claims. After Clarkson sued the state of Kansas to view the tapes, State Secretary Kris Kobach asked the judge to block her case. I guess there’s nothing to see here folks.”

Are_You_A_CitizenVIDEO: Entire Family Arrested, Child Taken by CPS, for Refusing Unlawful Search at Checkpoint – by Matt Agorist, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “As the Feinman’s drove through, they refused to be unlawfully searched, citing their 4th Amendment right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures… The agents, however, could have cared less about the Feinman’s rights, stating at one point that ‘this is my job.’.. When the family refuses to back down, government force is escalated, and police officers are called in to violate the Feinmans even further… As Mr. Feinman asserts his rights, he is threatened with being pulled out of the vehicle and having his children taken from him by CPS… Mr. Feinman says he’d like to go, but these officers are determined to extort money from him (issue a citation) for flexing his rights. When he asks the cops if they swore an oath to defend the constitution, the cop asks, ‘So you’re a Constitutionalist?’.. When Feinman confirms that he is a constitutionalist, the officer responds, ‘We’ve had problems with this before.’..” (emph. added)

Family Near Area 51 Fights Back After Government Tries To Confiscate Property – by Carey Wedler, ActivistPost.com – “According to the Sheahans, the military harassed them in other ways, as well. “They have driven away prospective business partners and told them, ‘If you buy the place or try to operate, we are going to condemn it, and you’re going lose your money,” Dan Sheahan claims… In recent decades, the government cordoned off large portions of the area, manning them with armed guards. “They held people at gunpoint. They withdrew 89,000 acres of land, surrounded our property and made us an island,” Joe Sheahan said. Sheahan-Manning stated that she has been illegally searched and that for years, the government has forced members of the family to go through checkpoints to access their own property. “It seems like machine guns solve anything on the property out there. That’s not the American way,” Dan Sheahan said… ‘We want ‘em to know what they have done over the last 60 years to our family is not acceptable,’ he also commented, saying they did not want to go public but felt they had no other choice.”

Cotton-n-BibiUS Senator Backs B-1 Bombers for Israel – by Barbara Opall-Rome, DefenseNews.com – “Beyond deeper strategic cooperation and intelligence coordination, Cotton said he supports a significant hike in annual Foreign Military Financing (FMF) grant aid to Israel above the $3.1 billion levels set to expire in fiscal 2018… ‘Of course, it depends in large part on strategic assessments, but I’d be open’ to levels as high as $5 billion, he said… According to Cotton, FMF to Israel, the Egyptian government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan promote stability and order in a terror-wracked region… ‘In my view, an increase [to Israel] would be eminently reasonable, despite the budget constraints we face in Washington. Our FMF program has not done anything to increase our budget deficit…’ ” – Note: The U.S. has NEVER sold or given its bombers to any other nation. The B-1 runs about a cool $300 million a copy.

The Polio VACCINE is Causing the New Polio – by Aaron Dykes, TruthStreamMedia.com – ” ‘While polio has statistically disappeared from India, there has been a huge spike in cases of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP)– the very types of crippling problems it was hoped would disappear with polio but which have instead flourished from a new cause… ‘There were 47,500 cases of non-polio paralysis reported in 2011, the same year India was declared “polio-free,” according to Dr. Vashisht and Dr. Puliyel. Further, the available data shows that the incidents tracked back to areas were doses of the polio vaccine were frequently administered.’.. Related studies in India have already demonstrated that polio vaccines are the leading cause of polio paralysis.’.. That’s more than 47,000 children crippled and permanently disabled by the vaccine – not the disease!… However, this problem was largely ignored while vaccine pushers – literally in overkill mode – were praised for nearly ‘eradicating’ polio… Now, this problem is cropping up in many other countries, too.”

DriveSmart-NYNew York Introduces “Drive Smart” Car Tracking Technology – by Joshua Krause, ActivistPost.com – “Like any surveillance program, the proponents of Drive Smart are trying to regale the citizens of New York with the benefits of this technology. Safe drivers can send the data to their insurance company and have their rates cut, and the device will help you find less congested routes. However, there’s no reason to think that this technology couldn’t be easily hacked, or that the authorities could use the information against you… City officials have assured the public that the information is anonymous, and would be deleted from their database every 48 hours, but I think we know better. Our government has shown us time and time again that they don’t care about our rights, and they cannot be trusted with our private information… They also make no mention of how long this technology will remain voluntary. Surveillance is a slippery slope, and it will only be a matter of time before they force every driver to install Drive Smart in their vehicle. All in the name of safety and efficiency of course.”

US presence in Ukraine against Minsk deal: Russia – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘US soldiers are firmly entrenched in Ukraine, which constitutes a flagrant violation of Article 10 of the February 12 Minsk Agreement,’ Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing in the Russian capital, Moscow, on Thursday… Article 10 of the agreement stipulates the pullout of all foreign-armed formations, military equipment and mercenaries from Ukraine… In April, about 300 US troops from the US 173rd Airborne Brigade for Operation Fearless Guardian arrived in Ukraine’s western city of Yavoriv to train members of the Ukrainian National Guard in their fight against pro-Russia forces in Ukraine’s eastern provinces… The US move came despite the truce deal…”

Uighurs_DemonstrateGlobal Gladio: NATO Terror Network Reaches into Asia – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “(U.S. funded World Uyghur Congress) admits that violence broke out among the mobs it was leading in Ankara but denied any affiliations with the protesters in Istanbul who attacked the consulate and destroyed it on the same day, in the same country, over the same alleged grievances. WUC itself suggested it was the work of the “Grey Wolves,” an organization they admit was ‘clandestinely funded by the US government.’.. The Grey Wolves are comprised of Turks and Uyghurs, and throughout the Cold War served as part of NATO’s “stay behind networks” referred to as Gladios. They were used to purge NATO’s enemies from Turkey in bloody violence that would leave over 6,000 dead. Since the Cold War, the Grey Wolves have set up operations internationally, including terrorist training camps in Xinjiang, China – all indicating that NATO’s Gladio has gone global… For the rest of the world – NATO’s “Gladio” networks are vast and varied. From Ukraine to Syria to Thailand, the most violent and criminal elements in any given society have been organized by the West in a bid to divide, destroy, and dominate the planet. From the original Gladio program in Western Europe, the means of expertly manipulating these criminal gangs has been perfected. Increasing awareness of how Gladio works will not only better arm society to take action against it, but perhaps even dissuade eager criminal elements from joining organizations that are essentially cannon fodder for NATO.”

From the Isn’t-September-Bizarre-Enough-Already? Desk – Alert: Air traffic collision warning systems, locators, down off East Coast and 5 states until Oct. 1 – DoD gives last-minute notice to FAA before going dark – by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub.com – “A traffic collision avoidance system or traffic alert and collision avoidance system […] is an aircraft collision avoidance system designed to reduce the incidence of mid-air collisions between aircraft. It monitors the airspace around an aircraft for other aircraft equipped with a corresponding active transponder, independent of air traffic control, and warns pilots of the presence of other transponder-equipped aircraft which may present a threat of mid-air collision (source: Wikipedia) – This is immensely concerning not only for the safety of passengers and staff aboard flights navigating the affected areas but for the security of our country as well. In fact the last time we saw similar systems go down was during the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon, Sept. 11, 2001.” (emph. added)

Color Revolution 2.0 in Lebanon: From Piles of Trash to Piles of Rubble – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Just recently in Armenia, the US conducted what appeared to be a test run of its new and improved “color revolution” system of regime change… The trick was to first use rising electrical costs as a pretext to stage the protests, then quickly swing them around to demand a change in government. Likely, provocations and violence were planned for later stages, as well as opportunities for America’s client opposition parties to take over and swell the ranks of street mobs with their supporters… In Armenia, America’s next generation of color revolutions failed… In Beirut, however, it seems that the protests have made it at least to the point where the alleged pretext – piles of garbage – have now been replaced with demands for regime change… Despite the 2005 so-called “Cedar Revolution” being exposed as entirely US-engineered, paving the way for the expulsion of Syrian troops from Lebanon and an Israeli attack on the country the following year, many even in the alternative press have been taken in by what should be an obvious, albeit more carefully concealed, follow-up to 2005’s events.”

ETsEarth as an Alien Enterprise – by V. Susan Ferguson, WakingTimes.com – “The people who have access to secret technology are way ahead of the rest of us. They are the ‘Breakaway Civilization,’ and ‘secret algorithms — obscured by a triple layer of technical complexity, secrecy, and ‘economic espionage’ laws that can land would-be whistle-blowers in prison still prevent us from understanding.’ [Pasquale]… We have little to no comprehension of the veiled, secretive world we are now forced to inhabit. The people with ‘access’ are the owners, controllers and financiers behind these technologies that emerged out of the ET ‘deal,’ and they have become obsessed with their own power. Pasquale reports CEO Eric Schmidt of Google saying he wants Google users the be able to ask it, ‘What shall I do tomorrow?,’ and ‘What job shall I take?’ This is beyond creepy and moving into the domain of a totalitarian invasion of the human heart and psyche.

Web of Secrecy Surrounds Federal Half-a-Billion Handout to Charter Schools – by Jonas Persson, Truth-Out.org – “Throwing good money after bad, Education Secretary Arne Duncan called for a 48 percent increase in federal charter funding earlier this year, and the House and Senate budget proposals also call for an increase – albeit a more modest one – while at the same time slashing education programs for immigrants and language learners… The clamor for charter expansion comes despite the fact that there are federal probes underway into suspected waste and mismanagement within the program, not to mention ongoing and recently completed state audits of fraud perpetrated by charter school operators… Earlier this year, the Center for Popular Democracy documented more than $200 million in fraud, waste, and mismanagement in the charter school industry in 15 states alone, a number that is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg.”

Capn_Jimmy_Wales10 shocking facts you never knew about Wikipedia and Jimmy Wales – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “Now that the truth about Wikipedia being a blackmail extortion racket has emerged, people are starting to connect the dots on the criminality and corruption that dominates the discredited disinfo site… Not only was Wikipedia’s founder Jimmy Wales a “porn king” who sold online pornography before launching Wikipedia, we also know that wikipedia deliberately censors large categories of truthful information on natural healing, the dangers of vaccines, the crimes of Hillary Clinton, the corruption and criminality of the biotech industry and much more.

The CITT: A Seat at the Table of Destruction – by Montana Land and Water Alliance, WesternMtnWaterRights.wordpress.com – “After transferring the bare legal title of irrigation project water to the CSKT, the Compact converts nearly 80% of agricultural water use to instream flow and minimum reservoir levels, drastically reducing on farm delivery of water through a process called “adaptive management”. The CITT is the entity created by the Compact that implements “adaptive management” in the federal FIP… (Note: this “conversion of agricultural water use to instream flow” is a property taking and is why the state gave itself immunity from damages, costs, and attorneys fees.)”

Garden_of_Eden-farmPolice raid organic farm hoping to find marijuana plants and instead seize organic fruit and vegetable plants! – by Lynn Griffith, news.TheRawFoodWorld.com – “A stiff penalty was exactly what Arlington, Texas police department was hoping to hand out to a small organic farm called Garden of Eden. This farm was the target of a massive police raid that included aerial surveillance… The police had a search warrant for marijuana plants…which they failed to find on the farm. However, after a 10 hour search, they did seize 17 blackberry bushes, 15 okra plants, 14 tomatillo plants, native grasses and sunflowers!.. The owners of the farm believe that the police action had more to do with code violations than marijuana concerns. In weeks leading up to the raid, the farm had been cited for violations including: grass being too tall, bushes too close to the street, a couch and piano in the yard, improperly stacked chopped wood, one piece of missing siding from the home, and an unclean premises.” (emph. added)Gotta wonder what their jurisdiction was for taking their produce…

For the week of 8/24/15:

West_Coast-Algae_BloomToxic algae bloom is ‘eating the West Coast’ as sea animals continue to die off amid Fukushima radiation plume – by David Gutierrez, Natural News.com – “According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the bloom is “laced with some toxic [phytoplankton] species that have had far-reaching consequences for sea life and regional and local economies.” These species, known as Pseudo-nitzschia, produce a highly toxic chemical known as domoic acid… Toxic algae blooms of this variety, also known as red tides, are well known and relatively common. This particular red tide is not only enormous, but it has also been exceptionally long lasting and still shows no signs of dispersing… ‘It’s the longest lasting, highest toxicity and densest bloom that we’ve ever seen,’ said Vera Trainer, research oceanographer with the Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Washington state.”

Microscopic 3D-Printed “Smart” Fish Nanobots to Swim in Bloodstream & Remove Toxins – by Jay Syrmopoulos, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – ” ‘We have developed an entirely new method to engineer nature-inspired microscopic swimmers that have complex geometric structures and are smaller than the width of a human hair. With this method, we can easily integrate different functions inside these tiny robotic swimmers for a broad spectrum of applications,’ said the co-first author Wei Zhu, a nanoengineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego… When the microfish are placed in a toxin-rich environment, they become fluorescent red and begin to glow intensely as their toxin-neutralizing nanoparticles chemically bind with the molecules of toxins… ‘Another exciting possibility we could explore is to encapsulate medicines inside the microfish and use them for directed drug delivery,’ Jinxing Li, the other co-first author of the study, said in a statement… Researchers believe that the realization of the microfish, as proof of concept, will usher in an entire new generation in “smart” nanobots.” – If you think that the purpose of these self-propelled nano-bots for your bloodstream is to bring you vibrant health, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I can let you have for cheap.

Hungary-RefugeesHungary completes anti-refugee barrier along southern border – from PressTV.ir – “However, the barrier, consisting of three rolls of razor wire, has reportedly failed to stop thousands of refugees slipping into the country… A four-meter (13-foot)-high wall, currently under construction, is due to follow the fence and will ‘also provide a defense against illegal border-crossers,’ according to the statement… Some 1,000 Hungarian border guards currently control the 175-kilometer (108-mile) frontier, and 2,000 more are slated to join them from September 1, the government says… Official data show over 140,000 refugees, most of them fleeing conflicts in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, have entered Hungary from Serbia this year hoping to continue their journey to reach western European countries.”

Obama’s Ukrainian Forces Break Minsk Agreement: Resume Invasion – by Eric Zuesse, GlobalResearch.ca – “DPR Deputy Commander Basurin said that ‘According to our estimate, the enemy is trying to provoke a response by our troops and with such activity convince the army command of the DPR to prepare for an offensive in this direction of the UAF,’ so that DPR’s strategy of — as much as possible — not initiating fire, but only responding to it, will be broken. That would then provide the U.S. side the opportunity to charge the DPR side with violating Minsk II… Basurin went on to say: ‘…the criminal fascist regime is purposefully trying to disrupt the Minsk Agreement. The bloodthirsty Kiev puppets are out to disrupt the establishment of peaceful life in the Republic, thereby showing the whole world their inability to conduct civilized negotiations. The paranoiacs in power are leading Ukraine into the abyss.”

Dees-Greenspan-Disappearing_DollarNever Forget: The Central Banks Have Engineered This Collapse – by James Corbett, CorbettReport.com – “OK, enough sarcasm. Readers of this column will know by now that the phoney baloney stock markets, manipulated as they are from top to bottom and juiced as they are on the Fed’s QE heroin, are no longer reflective of economic reality. The only question is how far this particular dead cat market will bounce, and whether it will be helped along with more heroin from the Fed… But there is already one vitally important take away from these events that the independent media must articulate now, before it’s too late. Namely: This crisis was engineered by the central banks. It is their fault… Let me repeat that again in case you missed it: This crisis was engineered by the central banks… This point is not even controversial. It has been the universal consensus of institutions ranging from the Bank for International Settlements to the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum, and from OECD officials to former Fed Governors and even Alan “Bubbles” Greenspan himself.”

Robots will cut 25% of US jobs in 4 years, transform workforce – report – from RT.com – “The prediction comes in a report titled ‘The Future of Jobs, 2025: Working Side-By-Side with Robots,’ published by Forrester Research this week. The study’s findings were drawn from government employment data, and interviews with businesses and academics… Automation in daily life is already prevalent and expanding beyond the grocery store scanner. Robots are now delivering room service to guests in the Aloft hotel in San Francisco, and self-service kiosks filling orders at delis rather than humans… Lowe’s hardware is testing Oshbot, a robotic sales assistant that can answer questions, and show customers a floorplan of the store or lead them directly to products they seek. It was recently featured in an RT segment… However, the study argued that the decline in service jobs caused by increasing automation would be offset by the creation of new ones, reducing net jobs losses to only 9.1 million, or 7 percent… ‘Physical robots require repair and maintenance professionals – one of several job categories that will grow up around a more automated world,’ wrote J P Gownder, the lead author in Forbes.”

Van-Iran_Is_GreatUK police: No apology needed to owners of ‘Iran Is Great’ van after attack – from PressTV.ir – “‘It would be unreasonable to expect this service to pay compensation when police were merely carrying out the duty the public rightly expect of them especially given the heightened counter-terrorism threat level,’ the letter said, adding, ‘Where police force entry lawfully as was the position here, and in doing so cause damage, there is no legal liability to compensate in respect of damage necessarily caused.’.. The Ivans are also known for their promotion of Iran, a country they fell in love with after a visit last year, which prompted them to put “Iran Is Great” artworks on both sides of their vehicle… A policewoman had told the Ivans later that the writing on the van prompted police action… ‘That’s the justification. It doesn’t say ‘Spain is Great’, ‘Italy is Great’, whatever,’ the policewoman said.”

Has the California water crisis been manufactured like the Enron-engineered electricity crisis?Fracking And Water Companies Win Big
During Historic California DroughtJerry Brown’s water crisis management looking more like Gray Davis’ energy debacle – from StateOfTheNation.com – “The following essay presents a very cogent case as to why the drought was purposefully fabricated utilizing chemical geoengineering. Both the lack of an appropriate response by Governor Brown, as well as a completely neglectful Obama Administration, point to a state and federal conspiracy, respectively, of deliberate inaction. Such purposeful negligence, as in the case of Gray Davis, can only be understood by knowing who really gains from this unfolding disaster: Governor Jerry Brown BETRAYS California Residents, Ignores Geoengineering Causes Of Historic California Drought… Many Californians now wonder whether Gov. Brown has a similar relationship with the fracking industry and multinational water corporations. The fracking companies have been allowed to utilize massive quantities of water necessary for their hydro-fracking operations. Likewise, the large transnational water bottlers such as those shown above have been given carte blanche to extract as much water as they can sell… There is now enough evidence — scientific, anecdotal and circumstantial — stacking up in the public domain which clearly indicates that the California drought was methodically geoengineered over the past 4 to 5 years.[4] The very day that Jerry Brown took office on January 3, 2011, the drought began in earnest. Could it be a coincidence, or was it a sign that the time was right for the geoengineers to implement their climate modification agenda?”

Jim_SinclairPlunge Protection Team Losing Control of Markets-Jim Sinclair – by Greg Hunter, USAWatchdog.com – “The US Plunge Protection Team is losing control of the markets, and Sinclair warns, ‘They got the dickens scared out of them. They actually backed off providing the funds necessary. . . . That’s your warning. The warning is markets can overrun plunge protection teams. Markets can and will overrun the manipulation of metals and currencies. The market will overrun the false strength in the US dollar. The idea that a lift in interest rates would be beneficial to the dollar is absolutely incorrect. We do know the limits of the Plunge Protection Team, and we do know the omnipotent power of the Fed is a total fallacy.’.. On gold, Sinclair says, ‘I didn’t call the top in gold in 1980 because of any kind of a system. I was told, I acted on what I was told… His sources are talking again, and Sinclair says he was told: ‘Number one, the downside on gold is extraordinarily limited here. Two, the rally we are facing that will come in gold is going to be stupendous…’ ”

Tories demolish 200,000-strong petition to legalise cannabis before it’s even debated – by Dan Bloom, Mirror.co.uk – “It adds the UK’s drug policy is clear, saying: “Substantial scientific evidence shows cannabis is a harmful drug that can damage human health… “The Tory administration has now issued a thundering reply which says it has no plans to end the war on drugs… They’re supposed to reply before a debate takes place, but the strength and tone of ministers’ opposition could see the petition blocked before reaching the Commons chamber… That’s because it has to pass through two Tory-dominated committees before being opened to all MPs, competing with other causes for valuable airtime… ‘There are no plans to legalise cannabis as it would not address the harm to individuals and communities… Cannabis can unquestionably cause harm to individuals and society.’.. The campaign is the second most popular on the government’s website – but ministers say the drug causes misery and harm.”

The Sabbatean Sabotage of Humanity – by Zen Gardner, ZenGardner.com – “Sabbatean refers to a certain Kabbalist lineage dating back to Shabbatai Tzvi who ran with the twisted occult teachings of a denizen of the deep satanic occultist named Isaac Luria. Shabbatai later gained massive power and notoriety and eventually proclaimed himself the messiah du jour. His subsequent influence is very alive today in the many forms into which it has since morphed… The psychopathic nature of this aggressive swarm not only has no conscience nor empathy, but is supported and justified by a plethora of perverted Luciferian precepts that defy comprehension to the average human. This is what fuels their despotic fires and draws in carefully selected subhuman psychotic accomplices from all quarters. All is permitted and justified, and those who believe in empathy and any sense of good or conscience are dismissed as dumb sheep that deserve to be manipulated, abused and handily slaughtered… Their credo and underlying belief in a nutshell: We shall bring destruction, perversion and chaos to precipitate the return of our true god under whom we shall have full reign over humanity. And we can do whatever the hell we want without compunction or conscience. Anything under any guise.”

This December, Agenda 21 is Getting an “Update” – by Rusticus, ActivistPost.com – “The purpose of these festivities, however, is hardly mere ceremony; as Agenda 21 comes of age, the burdens it places upon those living beneath its yoke are also maturing. Unlike every UN Climate Convention since Rio 1992, which were mere “global visioning” seminars, COP21, according to the Anglo-American Cambridge University, has far more grandiose and binding aspirations: ‘The United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21 or CMP11 will be held in Paris, France in 2015. The international climate conference will be held from 30 November to 11 December 2015. The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.’ –Cambridge Interdisciplinary Research on the Environment… In other words, Agenda 21 v2.0 will soon be upon us… Information on what exactly this “upgrade” entails for Free Humanity is sparse, as the UN remains resolutely vague (perhaps deliberately, given recent notoriety surrounding “sustainable development”) on the specifics of the Convention’s “binding and universal agreement.” Yet in spite of Globalism’s sincere attempt to obfuscate Neofeudal Technocracy’s latest iteration, open-source intelligence can give us a glimpse behind the proverbial curtain at the magic tricks in store at COP21 this December.”

Neal Adams – The Earth is Growing – Must-See animation of important scientific theory (10 min)

The Expanding Earth, Expanding Consciousness Theory – by Gregg Prescott, WakingTimes.com – “Many metaphysicians and scientists believe that our universe is expanding, so based on the premise, ‘As above, so below’, is it within the realm of possibility that Earth is expanding as well? If so, then is it possible that as the universe and Earth expands, then so does our consciousness?.. The awakening of consciousness reflects the premise of “As on the inside, so on the outside”. Is there a correlation between these two premises or is it simply a coincidence?.. Neal Adams proposed an expanding earth theory in which the continents on this planet have moved due to the increasing size of the Earth…. There is an awakening of consciousness on our planet that is occurring in exponential proportions. As the Earth expands, is it possible that our consciousness is reflecting not only the expansion of our planet, but the universe as well? Even our physical bodies, in general, are growing larger and taller with each generation. Are these changes also reflective of an expanding earth and universe?

Scientists in Canada Being Censored from Covering Dangers of Aluminum in Vaccines -by Christina England, HealthImpactNews.com – “Over recent weeks, the Canadian media have been actively criticizing the work of two researchers from the University of British Columbia. Newspapers have stated that studies written by Professor Christopher Shaw and Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, outlining a correlation between the adjuvant aluminum used in vaccines and autism were “weak and misleading,” stating that the studies had been previously discredited by the World Health Organization (WHO)… Award-winning journalist, Ms. Carly Weeks from the Globe and Mail, opened her report by citing a study that had been highlighted on the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) website, written by the researchers in 2013… Instead of actually researching their paper in depth and quoting what the researchers had discovered and how they had come to their conclusions, Ms. Weeks continued her vicious attack by cleverly averting her readers’ attention away from the 2013 paper, focusing their attention instead on a WHO report written in 2012 which referred to two 2011 studies… It is a complete mystery as to why such a capable young journalist could only find an out-of-date report consisting of a total of three poorly written and inaccurate paragraphs to support her argument. Especially since the WHO has no solid proof that aluminum adjuvants are safe. In a statement written in their paper titled World Health Organization. Weekly and epidemiological record 7 Jan 2005 in a section titled Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety, 2–3 December 2004, they admit that they have neglected this subject…”

Meanwhile, the real enemy reports its plans to the government it serves to justify its budgeting needs without much notice at all by we it seeks to fundamentally alter and destroy. Why? Because financial reports are boring… Think again!… I have listed below just a few of the many projects and their descriptions for budgeting purposes, which are from the fiscal year 2014 report entitled: …Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Justification Book Volume 1 of 1(emph. added)

SWAT Team Raids Home, Kills Man Over $2 Worth of Pot – Informant Exposes Police Cover-Up – by Jay Syrmopoulos, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – ” ‘They have IA, they have internal investigations but when you police yourself, you have that veil of concern by the outsider,’ said attorney T.J. Grimaldi… On Tuesday,…Grimaldi, representing the family of Westcott, informed the city that family would be filing a lawsuit, after finding numerous “glaring inconsistencies” in police statements in the aftermath of the killing… ‘We have developed and seen what we view to be significant inconsistencies with the way that the police department portrayed this case from the get-go all the way to its conclusion,’ he said. ‘We have put the city and the police department on notice that we are going to be filing a lawsuit,’ Grimaldi said… Westcott became the target of an intense drug trafficking investigation after a confidential informant led investigators to believe that Westcott was a dealer, as opposed to the casual cannabis smoker he was in reality. The informant has since gone public and admitted that he was lying to police in the case… The stench of a police cover-up is strong in this case… Initially, police claimed that a neighbor’s complaints led to the raid. After further investigation revealed that information to be false, police then attempted to say that the information was from an undercover officer. Finally after being pressed by a relentless investigation into the facts, police revealed they used a confidential informant.”

‘Three Israeli officers killed in operation in Syria’ Iranian media claims – from the Jerusalem Post, JPost.com – “At least 42 soldiers were allegedly killed in a Syrian air raid in Daraá, including three supposed Israeli officers, reported Fars News, an official Iranian news agency, on Saturday… According to the report, military sources have reported the death of senior Israeli and Jordanian officers in Southern Syria following an air raid operation in the region. The report refers to the Israeli officers as ‘terrorist commanders.’ ”

NASA-MorgellonsWhat Does NASA Have in Common with Morgellons Disease? – by Catherine J. Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “Readers may be asking, “What’s Morgellons disease?” Well, it’s one of the new, technical age diseases, which may have its roots in genetic engineering/modification or even transhumanism research. Allopathic medicine is bombing out on acknowledging that it exists, claiming sufferers are delusional, but those who do acknowledge it, feel it’s a legitimate health problem and candidly suggest there is no treatment for it… However, most of the efforts to research and deal with Morgellons have been taken on by patients like Cindy Casey, who tells her story here… Interestingly though, some research has surfaced that may put another spin on Morgellons. That evidence is a NASA logo embedded in Morgellons fibers as artificial bio-intelligence! Don’t believe that? Well, how about this video that apparently exposes what NASA’s been doing for close to 40 years: creating artificial life by altering the genomes of cells. The early plans were titled ‘Artificial Cells: Prospects for Biotechnology.’ ”

Jeremy Corbyn and the Jews – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “The vastly growing popularity of Jeremy Corbyn amongst Brits can be easily explained. Following decades of cultural Marxist, divisive Identiterian politics and Zionist-Neocon domination within the British Left, Corbyn brings along a refreshing ideological alternative. Corbyn seems to re-unite the Brits. He cares for the weak. He opposes interventionist wars. He represents the return of the good old left as opposed to New Labour’s affinity with big money, choseness and exceptionalism. He cares for the students and the youth. He thinks about the future and promises to undo the damage created by Blair and Cameron. But as Britain sees the rise of a hugely popular ideological movement, many Jewish institutions see Corbyn as an arch enemy. They would prefer to see him gone and have used nearly every trick in the book to discredit him.”

Israel-Syria-mapIsrael “Drills” Ground Incursion In Syria; Pretext Fighting Terror Israel Helped Create – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The justification for the concern over the Golan border area is that “Iran has opened a new front against Israel on the Golan Heights.” This accusation is leveled repeatedly throughout the articles detailing the drills and preparations being made by Israel yet neither the media outlets nor the Israeli government has offered credible evidence to buttress their claims… The source for claims that Iran has opened a new offensive against Israel seems to be rooted in a recent clash between IDF forces and four Druze villagers who allegedly attempted to detonate explosive devices at three locations along the border fence. Israel blames the alleged bombing attempt on Iran, claiming that the Persian nation recruited the four Druze villagers to conduct terrorist attacks against Israel… Without pointing out that much of the Golan Heights was stolen by Israel decades ago and represents yet another illegal Israeli occupation, it is also important to note that not one shred of evidence has yet been provided to back up Israel’s claims regarding the Iranian involvement.”

EU Commission Says None of Your Business on Glyphosate Risk Assessment – by Heather Callaghan, ActivistPost.com – “Unlike propagandists acting as scientism skeptics, who pretend it’s safe to drink glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide) – many other studies and observations prove that human exposure is hazardous. Sometimes it’s finding out that glyphosate can lead to breast cancer in parts per trillion, that it hijacks hormones and is found in breast milk and in rain samples. Sometimes it’s a farmer waking up to discover that his piglets are deformed and dying – so he sends them off to a lab. Sometimes you find out that the so-called experts who tell us to “trust science” as they pretend to drink glyphosate are actually getting funds from Monsanto… Here, we actually have independent researchers ready to face the results of the assessment, come what may, and the Commission basically says, “you can’t look at that.” Even though parts of Europe are known for blocking GMO crops, restricting pesticides and labeling or restricting GMO food products, Monsanto et al. have been orbiting the EU strategically finding openings. Whether it’s by funding research projects to “help the bees,” pretending to help the bees, or better yet, getting super cozy with the commish‘.”

Michael-n-Lowell_MilkenThe brothers who funded Blair, Israeli settlements and Islamophobia – by Sarah Marusek and David Miller, MiddeEastEye.net – “between 2009 and 2013, the Lowell Milken Family Foundation funnelled $607,000 to the Ariel settlement in the central occupied West Bank, either through the tax-exempt charity American Friends of Ariel or directly to the Ariel University Center of Samaria… Indeed, Lowell Milken’s contributions to the illegal settlement are so important that the Friends of Ariel website has dubbed him ‘Ariel’s Celebrity’… Also between 2009-2013, the Milken family foundations donated $555,000 to Aish HaTorah, an international Jewish Orthodox organisation that staunchly defends Israeli policies and features pro-settlement articles on its website. Ronn Torossian, a spokesperson for Aish HaTorah in New York, once told writer Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic magazine, ‘I think we should kill a hundred Arabs or a thousand Arabs for every one Jew they kill,’ adding that: ‘If someone from a town blows himself up and kills Jews, we should wipe out the town he’s from, kill them all.’ ”

23 Nations Around The World Where Stock Market Crashes Are Already Happening – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “As you read this article, almost every single stock market in the world is down significantly from a record high that was set either earlier this year or late in 2014. But even though stocks have been sliding in the western world, they haven’t completely collapsed just yet… In much of the developing world, it is a very different story. Emerging market currencies are crashing hard, recessions are starting, and equity prices are getting absolutely hammered… Posted below is a list that I put together of 23 nations around the world where stock market crashes are already happening. To see the stock market chart for each country, just click the link…”

Kerry-at-Erdogan's_TableAnkara: the New Capital of Jihad – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Has US policy in Syria fallen prey to the political ambitions of one man, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan?.. Certainly not. Washington has its own malignant agenda in Syria, which is to topple Syrian President Bashar al Assad, split the country into pieces, lock-down critical pipeline corridors, and establish a “Salafist principality” that will justify continued US intervention across the Middle East for the foreseeable future. These are the objectives of US policy and they haven’t changed because of anything Erdogan has done… That’s not to say that Erdogan hasn’t complicated matters by requiring the US to play by Turkey’s rules. He has. Just look at the Incirlik deal. In theory, it looks like a win-win for US war-planners who will now be able to cross into Syrian airspace in 15 minutes instead of the two hours it took from Bahrain. But the devil is in the details which suggest constraints on the US military’s ability to conduct its own campaign or even choose its own targets. Take a look at this excerpt from an article in Al Monitor: ‘Turkey wants to open Incirlik not only to US warplanes but also to the aircraft of anti-IS NATO members France, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Canada. What Turkey wants to accomplish here is to affix NATO legitimacy to the operation by reinforcing the perception that operations against IS targets in Syria are part of a NATO mission… Turkey insists that operations, flight routes and targets should be decided collectively by the coordination cell, but subject to Turkey’s final approval. This means decisions made at Incirlik must be conveyed to Ankara immediately. The coordination center in Ankara must be kept informed of all operations and flights in real time with Incirlik.’ ”

Trumping the Federal Debt Without Playing the Default Card – by Ellen Brown, EllenBrown.com – “In 2011, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul proposed dealing with the debt ceiling by simply voiding out the $1.7 trillion in federal securities then held by the Fed. As Stephen Gandel explained Paul’s solution in Time Magazine, the Treasury pays interest on the securities to the Fed, which returns 90% of these payments to the Treasury. Despite this shell game of payments, the $1.7 trillion in US bonds owned by the Fed is still counted toward the debt ceiling. Paul’s plan: Get the Fed and the Treasury to rip up that debt. It’s fake debt anyway. And the Fed is legally allowed to return the debt to the Treasury to be destroyed… Congressman Alan Grayson, a Democrat, also endorsed this proposal.”

French_Train_Heroes‘Let’s Roll’ Part Deux: American (Military) Tourists Thwart ‘Random ISIS Attack’ in Paris – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “According to accounts, there was a second passenger with the alleged gunman. New York Times reported: ‘Less than an hour away from Paris, a French passenger got up from his seat to use the toilets at the back of the carriage. Suddenly, in front of him rose a slightly built man. Across the man’s chest, in a sling, was an automatic rifle of the kind favored by jihadists the world over: an AK-47.’ Another key hero character in this drama is passenger, Chris Norman, who the media have been describing as ‘a British consultant who helps African entrepreneurs find financing in Europe.’ A traveling salesman of international third world finance, no less. However, while speaking to media, it’s clear that Norman has a clear South African accent, but is not referred to as South African, but instead as ‘British’. It is not known whether or not Norman has a defense industry or government background.”

Global stocks in ‘panic mode’ as Chinese factory slump drags on markets – by Shane Hickey and Martin Farrer, TheGuardian.com – “The preliminary Caixin/Markit China manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) stood at 47.1 in August, well below economists’ expectations of 47.7 and down from July’s final 47.8… The reading was the worst since March 2009, the depths of the global financial crisis, and the sixth straight one below the 50-point level, which separates growth in activity from contraction on a monthly basis… ‘The poor number confirms what higher frequency data has been suggesting, that more weakness in the economy is likely,’ said Chester Liaw, an economist at Forecast in Singapore… He added: ‘The authorities claimed that there will be a rebound in demand in the second half but it appears that the opposite is happening. With first half GDP scraping the bottom of the barrel at 7%, the authorities will have a fight on their hands to ensure that the second half of the year comes in at even the same level.’.. A detailed breakdown of the activity survey showed conditions were deteriorating on almost every level, with factory output sinking to a near four-year low, domestic and export orders declining at a faster rate than in July and companies laid off more workers.”

Carola_Herlin-stabbed-IKEAThe IKEA Murders: Sweden in Crisis – by Ingrid Carlqvist, GatestoneInstitute.org – “The elder of the two asylum seekers, a 36-year-old man, had twice been denied residency status in Sweden — because he had already been granted residency it in Italy — but he had not yet been deported. (Eritreans without residence permits in other EU-countries automatically get to stay in Sweden.).. The killer also inflicted life-threatening injuries on himself, and underwent several surgeries before the police could finally question him. On August 14, he confessed. His 23-year-old compatriot was released from custody, because the police no longer believe he had anything to do with the murders or had even known what his friend was planning to do… Fear has now struck the Swedes. Even those who had routinely brand critics of immigration and multiculturalism racist, were shaken to the core.”

US No-Fly List Uses ‘Predictive Judgement’ Instead of Hard Evidence – from yro.Slashdot.org – “The Obama administration is seeking to block the release of further information about how the predictions are made, as damaging to national security. “If the Government were required to provide full notice of its reasons for placing an individual on the No Fly List and to turn over all evidence (both incriminating and exculpatory) supporting the No Fly determination, the No Fly redress process would place highly sensitive national security information directly in the hands of terrorist organizations and other adversaries,” says the assistant director of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, Michael Steinbach.”

Henry-n-cuffsKissinger: ‘Breaking Russia Has Become Objective For US’ – from RT.com via InformationClearingHouse.info – “With the armed conflict in Ukraine still showing no signs of resolution, Kissinger repeated his previous proposal for Ukraine to become a buffer, or mediator state between Russia and the West… “We should explore the possibilities of a status of nonmilitary grouping on the territory between Russia and the existing frontiers of NATO,” he told The National Interest. “The West hesitates to take on the economic recovery of Greece; it’s surely not going to take on Ukraine as a unilateral project. So one should at least examine the possibility of some cooperation between the West and Russia in a militarily nonaligned Ukraine.”.. While Kissinger insists that he believes that Ukraine’s territorial integrity, including Crimea, which joined Russia last year, should have remained unaffected, he called for the West to stop backing Kiev at all costs, even as the victims of the conflict pile up… “The Ukraine crisis is turning into a tragedy because it is confusing the long-range interests of global order with the immediate need of restoring Ukrainian identity,” summed up the veteran diplomat.”

New NASA research points to possible HAARP connection in Japan earthquake, tsunami – from TheWatchers.Adorraeli.com – “A casual glance at the graphics presented as part of Ouzounov’s research data shows near-perfect heat rings present above the epicenter of the quake. If radon emissions from the fault line were truly responsible for creating these heat zones, they would more than likely have had irregular, scattered appearances, rather than concentric circles. This anomaly by itself debunks the theory that the impending earthquake caused the heat patterns… Also, readings from the HAARP Induction Magnetometer, which visualizes the frequency spectrum of signals detected in the earth’s geomagnetic field, show that a steady, ultra-low frequency (ULF) of roughly 2.5 Hz was being broadcast days before the earthquake. The 2.5 Hz ULF happens to be the exact same frequency as the natural resonance produced by an earthquake — and since there were no constant earthquakes occurring on the days before the quake as the HAARP Induction Magnetometer appeared to indicate, the logical conclusion is that the signal was being broadcast to induce the quake (http://presscore.ca/2011/?p=1624).”

Israel Fires Rockets Into Syria, Claims Targets Were ‘Iran-Backed’. Are They Playing With Fire? – by Randy Johnson, 21stCenturyWire.com – “With regards to the Middle East, wherever you stand on certain events being ‘designed’, or at least capitalized off of by direct beneficiaries – like military industrial complex stakeholders, defense contractors, mega oil corporations and politicians – it should be obvious that Syria seems to have been in the works for some time. Foreign interests have been at work to destabilize the country since fracturing began in 2011… The Middle East is a veritable “False Flag Grab Bag”. It can be ISIS or Al Qaeda–or any terror group you never heard of yet. It can come from anywhere in the region. The reasons for things to escalate, requiring action in the minds of Western political leaders and conflict-friendly network and cable news media are many. The infamous Syrian “chemical attacks” two years ago in August 2013, although thoroughly debunked by 21WIRE and others, was a serious attempt to kick things off in the region, but it never fully materialized… We see the cycle beginning again. This week, a marketplace massacre in Douma, Syria is being blamed on the Syrian government’s military, and as expected, it has prompted western media calls for another humanitarian intervention. Expect more such incidents in the coming weeks and months.”

For the week of 8/10/15:

Bradstreet-GcMAF-textGcMAF (Gc Macrophage Activating Factor) – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “…three other now-dead doctors were clearly associated with GcMAF. At least one charged that childhood vaccines were linked to destroying a child’s ability to produce and maintain GcMAF in his body throughout his life and thus made children more susceptible to autism, illness and premature death… If vaccines are shown to suppress the natural production of GcMAF, billions of dollars in profits for pharmaceutical firms may be lost and some medical researchers, corporate executives and FDA regulators might be subject to civil or criminal charges. The opportunity for conspiracy theories is substantial… The five deaths in four weeks makes the conspiracy theories seem credible… There may be dozens, even more, of YouTube videos on the subject. Here are three.” (emph. added)

New Zealand govt slammed by rights group for blasphemy law ‘enacted by stealth – from RT.com – “The Harmful Digital Communications Act came into force on July 2. It introduces a number of communication principles. One of them states: ‘A digital communication should not denigrate an individual by reason of his or her colour, race, ethnic or national origins, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.’.. Violators of the law will have to pay a fine up to 50,000NZD (almost $33,200) or serve two years in prison. Corporate bodies will face even higher fines – up to 200,000NZD almost ($133,200)… Justice Minister Amy Adams said a special agency would be created to work with victims of cyber-bullying… ‘The agency will help victims of harassment or cyber-bullying to resolve complaints as quickly and painlessly as possible. It will work with parties to help get objectionable content off the internet, and provide advice on other possible remedies,’ Adams said…”

Abu_Sayyaf-US_SASSAS troops ‘dressed in US uniforms and joined special forces on Isis Abu Sayyaf overnight raid in Syria – by Loulla-Mae Eleftheriou-Smith, Independent.co.uk – “British SAS soldiers were reportedly part of the US special forces mission that saw Islamic State commander Abu Sayyaf killed and his wife captured during an overnight raid… The secret raid was revealed in May this year but was announced by the White House as a US special forces operation, in which Sayyaf was shot dead in a gun battle after “engaging” with American troops… The newspaper claims the elite British troops wore US uniforms, carried US weapons and were flown into Syria’s Deir ez-Zor in a US Osprey aircraft… The SAS then reportedly dug into the desert and carried out a surveillance mission on Sayyaf’s compound, confirming his presence, before US jets attacked the Isis base and America’s Delta Force entered the area, shooting Sayyaf dead.

From the Psy-Ops-Hit-Piece Desk: EXPOSED: The ‘healing’ religion sweeping Britain that sells bleach-liquid cancer ‘cures’ – THE net is closing on supporters of a healing “religion” which sells a dangerous bleach liquid “cure” for cancer and autism – by James Murray, Express.co.uk – “The Mexico-based Church of Genesis II is gaining a firm foothold in Britain despite its medically unproven claims offering cures for chronic diseases… The church actively promotes the global distribution of its Miracle Mineral Solution, which can kill (Note: unproven assertion presented as fact)… Experts say the liquids, which are also sold as enemas (untrue assertion), contain the same chemicals as industrial bleach… Trading standards officials are closely monitoring the activities of a senior member of the church, Amanda Mary Jewell, who lives in a mansion in Farnham, Surrey.” – In the wake of the raid on a meeting in a house in Surrey by Trading Standards Board (regulatory) officials, it is looking like a repressive witch-hunt is being created against the use of remedies containing Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2), aka MMS, possibly worldwide. A trial by public opinion is underway. Real science need not apply.

“We Have A Civil War”: Inside Turkey’s Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out “terrorists”, its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years… Cavusoglu was effectively suggesting that the reason it appears as though Ankara is overwhelmingly targeting the PKK at the possible expense of efforts to weaken ISIS is because Turkey must wait for the US to show up first, at which point the “real” fight will begin with the possible assistance of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar. In the meantime, the country is descending into civil war and for many Kurds, the frontlines are all too familiar.”

Alaska-Dead_WhalesWhales continue to die off in Pacific Ocean; scientists suspect Fukushima radiation at fault – from NaturalNews.com – “No one knows what caused the death of the whales; however, scientists are narrowing in on the kernel of truth as they weed out possibilities. What scientists do know is that all the whales appear to have died around the same time… Samples have only been taken from one whale carcass so far. Researchers are still awaiting the results on two others tests for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and cesium-137… The mainstream media has cited a rise in ocean temperatures and acidity (round up the usual suspects) as possible causes of the whale deaths while ignoring the presence of cesium-137, a radioactive isotope with a 30-year half-life released from Fukushima.”

U.S. is Destroying Europe – by Eric Zuesse, StrategicCulture.org – “Shamus Cooke at Off-Guardian headlines on 3 August 2015, “Obama’s ‘Safe Zone’ in Syria Intended to Turn It into New Libya,” and he reports that Obama has approved U.S. air support for Turkey’s previously unenfoceable no-fly zone over Syria. The U.S. will now shoot down all of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s planes that are targeting the extremist-Muslim groups, including ISIS, that have taken over huge swaths of Syrian territory… Cooke reports: ‘Turkey has been demanding this no-fly zone from Obama since the Syrian war started. It’s been discussed throughout the conflict and even in recent months, though the intended goal was always the Syrian government. And suddenly the no-fly zone is happening — right where Turkey always wanted it — but it’s being labeled an ‘anti-ISIS’ safe zone, instead of its proper name: ‘Anti Kurdish and anti-Syrian government’ safe zone.’ ”

Moshe_Ya’alonIsraeli defence minister says he is ‘not responsible’ for lives of Iranian nuclear scientists following historic US-Iran deal – by Rose Troup Buchanan, Independent.co.uk – “Israel’s Defence Minister has appeared to imply that his country is prepared to assassinate Iran’s nuclear scientists following a historic deal with the West… Moshe Ya’alon, the former chief of staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, gave a damning assessment of the nuclear agreement between Iran and a number of western nations in an interview with German newspaper Der Spiegel… The 65-year-old minister condemned the deal, reportedly telling the newspaper ‘ultimately it is very clear, one way or another; Iran’s nuclear programme must be stopped.’ ” – I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse…

Scotland to ban GM crop growing – from BBC.com – “Richard Lochhead said the Scottish government was not prepared to “gamble” with the future of the country’s £14bn food and drink sector… He is to request that Scotland be excluded from any European consents for the cultivation of GM crops… Mr Lochhead added: ‘There is no evidence of significant demand for GM products by Scottish consumers and I am concerned that allowing GM crops to be grown in Scotland would damage our clean and green brand, thereby gambling with the future of our £14bn food and drink sector… ‘Scottish food and drink is valued at home and abroad for its natural, high quality which often attracts a premium price, and I have heard directly from food and drink producers in other countries that are ditching GM because of a consumer backlash.’ ”

Stephen_Lendman2Spying on Americans: Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Would Allow Arrest of Journalists, Anti-war Activists, Academics and Students – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “If enacted, Section 603 will require online companies to inform Washington of any “actual knowledge” of “facts and circumstances” related to undefined “terrorist activity” – meaning warrantless searches and seizures of personal electronic content will be authorized, potentially subjecting countless numbers of innocent people to unjustifiable scrutiny… Vague language makes independent journalists, political, anti-war, and social justice activists, academics and students doing legitimate research, as well as others vulnerable to being called suspected terrorists… The possibility could encourage self-censorship. Service providers may over-report to show compliance with the law. Online users could be flagged for using suspect words or phrases… One definition of terrorist activity can be another’s way of describing freedom fighting. Legitimate government criticism could be misinterpreted and misused.”

Vaccine industry social influence document reveals attempted bribery of ‘key social influencers’ such as Disney / Marvel, ESPN, Oprah and a CNN reporter – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – The document calls for the vaccine industry to, ‘Identify influential spokespersons from multiple sectors (e.g., business, sports, music) to reach each identified target population.’.. Targets are identified as groups that can either be influenced or surveiled to track their vaccine status. ‘Data should be used and communicated to align targets to specific needs; disease burden, vaccine coverage, age, geodemographics, economics, sex, race, ethnicity, and family work roles are examples of areas in which to collect data,’.. The report then admits that financial incentives should be paid to such influencers based on how many vaccines they help promote… a process which can be achieved by spreading scare stories about false flag outbreaks, for example. This is called ‘internal excitement for immunization awareness.’ ”

David_Sweat-Richard_MattAfter 2 Killers Fled, New York Prisoners Say, Beatings Were Next – by Michael Schwirtz and Michael Winerip, NYTimes.com – “They were also subjected to harsh policies ordered by the State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision: Dozens of inmates, many of whom had won the right to live on the honor block after years of good behavior, were transferred out of Clinton to other prisons. Many were placed in solitary confinement, and stripped of privileges they had accrued over the years — even though no prisoners have yet to be linked to Mr. Matt’s and Mr. Sweat’s actions… Indeed, it is prison employees who have been implicated: One has pleaded guilty to aiding the escape; another faces criminal charges; nine officers have been suspended and the prison’s leadership has been removed.”

German arms sales to Arab states surge by 50% – from PressTV.ir – “…despite an earlier announcement by German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel that the country would reduce its exports of military equipment to foreign nations…German arms exports to Arab states have climbed by 50 percent since January compared to the same period in the previous year… According to (Der Spiegel) magazine, the German government endorsed significantly more weapon sales to foreign countries between January and late June 2015 than the similar period in 2014… The total amount of the so-called individual weapon sales licenses surged by nearly 50 percent and reached 3.31 billion euros, the report added.”

David_Stockman-of-OMBThe Aspen War Games——No Place For Old Peaceniks – by David Stockman, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “The debate about “containing” versus “defeating” ISIS proved that in spades. In fact, the “exterminate ISIS” team embodied an exact caricature of the bipartisan folly which has congealed in the Washington War Party… Not surprisingly the #2 chair in the duo was occupied by a an-out-and-out neocon warmonger, Professor Phillip Zelikow. He was an architect of the Bush wars on WMD and head of the 9/11 Whitewash Commission. His case boiled down to shouting vehemently that the Islamic hordes are heading for Times Square… So America needs to obliterate the 200,000 citizens of Raqqah, Syria before they get us. Never mind that there is not one iota of evidence that the self-appointed enforcers of Islamic purity who occupy a few dusty desert towns in the Upper Euphrates have any intentions or capacity to attack the fleshpots of Broadway and 42nd.” – Note: includes verbiage by Stockman that seems to suggest he still supports the Official Conspiracy Theory of Osama bin Laden as the mastermind of 9/11.

Former Director of U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency says U.S. knew their Syria policies supported radical extremists and could lead to them “establishing a…Salafist principality”

Michael Fallon warns Ukraine war remains ‘red hot’ as he pledges more British military help – Defence Secretary says Ukraine’s eastern border still at risk from Vladimir Putin and promises UK will offer support for as long as it is needed (emph. added) – by Ben Farmer and Roland Oliphant, Telegraph.co.uk – Mr Fallon spoke on a visit to see British military training teams outside the Ukrainian capital, as a surge in fighting in the east of the country saw the heaviest artillery attacks on government positions for six months, with both sides accusing one another of readying for a return to all-out offensive warfare…The most intense violence has centred on Starohnativka, a town 30 miles north of the Ukrainian-controlled strategic port of Mariupol…The Ukrainian military said it repulsed an attack by 400 rebels backed by tanks who assaulted its positions there on Monday morning. Shelling was reported to be continuing in the area on Tuesday…Eduard Basurin, a military spokesman for the self proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, denied breaking the ceasefire and said at least one civilian had died in an “unprecedented” Ukrainian artillery attack near Starohnativka.”

“Orwellian” FBI Says Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain… As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process. After all, aren’t criminals the only ones who really have anything to hide? “We are not asking to expand the government’s surveillance authority, but rather we are asking to ensure that we can continue to obtain electronic information and evidence pursuant to the legal authority that Congress has provided to us to keep America safe,” Comey said during the Senate hearing… What does all this mean? It simply means that at every level, government considers its own citizens hostile… Oh, and there’s nothing we can do about it.”

Tianjin-Explosion“I Could Feel Death” – Massive Explosion Rocks Chinese Port City, Martial Law Declared, 42 Dead (9 Firemen), Over 400 Injured – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – ” ‘I thought it was an earthquake, so I rushed downstairs without my shoes on,” Tianjin resident Zhang Siyu, whose home is several kilometers from the blast site, said in a telephone interview. “Only once I was outside did I realize it was an explosion. There was the huge fireball in the sky with thick clouds. Everybody could see it.’.. Zhang said she could see wounded people weeping. She said she did not see anyone who had been killed, but ‘I could feel death.’.. There was no indication of what caused the blasts, and no immediate sign of any large release of toxic chemicals into the air… ‘It was like what we were told a nuclear bomb would be like,’ said truck driver Zhao Zhencheng, who spent the night in the cab of his truck. ‘I’ve never even thought I’d see such a thing. It was terrifying but also beautiful.’ ”

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape – Claiming the Quran’s support, the Islamic State codifies sex slavery in
conquered regions of Iraq and Syria and uses the practice as a recruiting tool – by Rukmini Callimachi, NYTimes.com – “The systematic rape of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority has become deeply enmeshed in the organization and the radical theology of the Islamic State in the year since the group announced it was reviving slavery as an institution. Interviews with 21 women and girls who recently escaped the Islamic State, as well as an examination of the group’s official communications, illuminate how the practice has been enshrined in the group’s core tenets… The trade in Yazidi women and girls has created a persistent infrastructure, with a network of warehouses where the victims are held, viewing rooms where they are inspected and marketed, and a dedicated fleet of buses used to transport them.”

israel-separation_wallPalestine: One state for all or a final Zionist ethnic cleansing? – by Alan Hart, VeteransToday.com – “As I revealed in Goodbye to the Security Council’s Integrity, the title of Chapter 3 of Conflict Without End?, the sub-title of Volume Three of the American edition of my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, the following is what Peres said to me (my emphasis added): ‘I fear it is already too late (for peace). Every day that passes sees new bricks on new settlements. Begin knows exactly what he’s doing (by expanding his settlement programme on the West Bank as fast as possible). He’s creating the conditions for a Jewish civil war. He knows that no Jewish prime minister is going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jewish people (out of occupation).’.. At the time Peres was hoping to replace Begin as prime minister after Israel’s next election and he added, “I’m not” (going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jewish people out of occupation)… The obvious question contains its own answer. If it was too late in 1980 when they were only about 70,000 illegal Jewish settlers, how much more too late is it today when there are in excess of 500,000 and with that number rising on a daily basis?”

Pentagon Sending Local Police Departments Armored Vehicles to Bust Stoners – by Carey Wedler, ActivistPost.com – “Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police—a de facto police union and advocacy group known for aggressively defending officers accused of brutality and misconduct—denied the equipment is requested to police marijuana and other illicit substances. ‘In reality, they’re almost exclusively used as defensive tools,’ he said. ‘It’s a rare drug enforcement case that would require an MRAP. We’re talking barricaded shooters and downed officers.’.. But the FOIA documents directly contradict Pasco’s description of police motives. Mother Jones notes that in at least seven separate cases, police specifically cited marijuana as a reason to obtain an armored vehicle. In 2012, Sheriff Tom Bosenko of Shasta County, California requested two armored vehicles to be “used during apprehension of suspects in both Marijuana eradications and during high risk search warrant service for drug offenders.” Marijuana, tied with methamphetamines, was the drug most cited by police applying for MRAPs.”

Christie-CluelessChris Christie Flunked Civics 101——Proved He’s Clueless About 4th Amendment in Debate With Rand Paul – by Andrew P. Napolitano, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “Hence, under any of the above federal laws, none of which is constitutional, the NSA can read whatever emails, listen to whatever phone calls in real time, and capture whatever text messages, monthly bank statements, credit card bills, legal or medical records it wishes merely by telling a secret court in Washington, D.C., that it needs them… And the government gets this data by area codes or zip codes, or by telecom or computer server customer lists, not by naming a person or place about whom or which it is suspicious… These federal acts not only violate the Fourth Amendment, they not only bring back a system the Founders and the Framers hated, rejected and fought a war to be rid of, they not only are contrary to the letter and spirit of the Constitution, but they produce information overload by getting all the data they can about everyone. Stated differently, under the present search-them-all regime, the bad guys can get through because the feds have more data than they can analyze, thus diluting their ability to focus on the bad guys.”

Hollande Under Fire After Newspaper Reveals True Cost of Mistral Fiasco – from SputnikNews.com – “Both Marine Le Pen’s National Front and Nicolas Sarkozy’s Republicans party came out with criticisms of Hollande for his decision to back out of the Mistral deal with Russia… France’s far-right Front National (FN) party president Marine Le Pen visits Moscow’s Red Square before a meeting with Russia’s State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin on May 26, 2015… Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French president, was in charge during negotiations which secured the deal for France. At the time, many political analysts saw the deal as a show of warming relations with France, following Sarkozy’s role in negotiating the end of the 2008 South Ossetia crisis… Le Pen’s National Front party put out a communique saying that the “astronomical cost” of the broken deal adds ‘indecency to the ineptitude of this decision.’ The party communique added that the money could have instead been used to solve budget issues of local governments or to build a new aircraft carrier for France itself.”

‘Our Central American spring’: protesters demand an end to decades of corruption – by Sibylla Brodzinsky, TheGuardian.com – “With their torches lighting the way through the darkening city streets, protesters, many with small children in tow, danced a few steps to the music blaring from a loudspeaker mounted on the bed of a pickup truck… The last time Hondurans protested like this was after the 2009 coup against then president Manuel Zelaya, which eroded already fragile institutions and left a power vacuum during which the IHSS fraud scheme was hatched… Hernández has said his government would get to the bottom of the corruption scandal “no matter who falls”… But he has resisted the demand by protesters for the creation of an independent criminal investigative body under the aegis of the United Nations, like one established nearly a decade ago in neighbouring Guatemala, which has been crucial in uncovering cases of government corruption and organized crime.”

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Having the yuan track close to the US dollar served China very well — until now. QEs in the EU and Japan led to a weaker euro and a weaker yen — while the yuan remained stable against the US dollar… Translation; since over a year ago, in June 2014, the yuan’s real exchange rate has been the world’s strongest, increasing by 13.5 percent. That was more than that of the US dollar (12.8 percent)… It was not hard for Beijing to do the math; the strong link with the US dollar was eroding China’s competitiveness with top trading partners Japan and Europe… Yet a simple 2 per cent devaluation may not be enough to boost China’s exports. After all the yuan appreciated more than 10 percent over the past year relative to China’s top trading partners… Thus the inside word in Beijing about “powerful voices inside the government” pushing for the Bank of China towards an overall 10 per cent devaluation of the yuan. Now that would certainly boost exports… So the devaluation this week — which has generated so much hysteria — seems to point towards a few more devaluations further on down the road.”

Assad-Putin-360Is Putin Planning to Sell-Out Assad? – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “In contrast, Russia does not want a divided Syria. Aside from the fact that Moscow and Damascus are long-term allies (and Russia has a critical naval facility in Tartus, Syria), a balkanized Syria poses serious threats for Russia, the most significant of which is the probable emergence of a jihadi base of operations that will be used to deploy terrorists across Central Asia thus undermining Moscow’s grand plan to integrate the continents into a giant free trade zone from Lisbon to Vladivostok. Russian President Vladimir Putin takes the threat of terrorism very seriously, which is why he has been working around-the-clock to engage leaders from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran, the Kurds and Syrian opposition groups in negotiations to put an end to the fighting and reestablish security in Syria. It’s worth noting that there’s been an effective blackout of these crucial negotiations in the western media, mainly because they make Putin look like a peacemaker who is respected among other world leaders and who is making every effort to stop the spread of terrorism. Obviously, that doesn’t jibe with the media’s portrayal of Putin as the new Hitler, so they’ve simply omitted the meetings from their coverage.”

Your Rights Removed For Monsanto’s Benefit – by Dr. Mercola, Articles-Mercola.com – “The bill is commonly referred to as the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” or DARK Act, as it extends unprecedented protection to Monsanto and other biotechnology companies while decimating state- and consumer rights… In addition to barring states from creating their own food labeling requirements for genetically modified organisms (GMOs), HR 1599 also preempts any and all state and local regulation of GE crops – increasing corporate control of our food systems… Adding insult to injury, HR 1599 will allow GMOs to be labeled as “natural,” while forcing the the burden of cost to conventional food providers, requiring a federal certification to be labeled as non-GMO… HR 1599 clearly flies in the face of polls6 showing that 94 percent of Americans think GMO labeling should be mandatory, which makes it even more obvious that our political system has become corrupted to the core.”

Fogh-of-WarUS-NATO Military Deployments, Economic Warfare, Goldman Sachs and the Next Financial Meltdown – Is There a Relationship? – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca – “Amply documented, the mega-banking institutions on Wall Street and their related hedge funds exert their influence at the highest levels of the US government including the State Department, the Pentagon and the White House… The system of cross-appointments together with corporate lobbying is part of this process. National security advisers and former Pentagon officials are appointed to the World Bank, etc. Former prime ministers, senior government officials take on consulting positions with major banking institutions, CIA officials are involved as advisers in key trade negotiations, etc. Conversely, Wall Street bankers are appointed to key positions in government… In early August, Goldman Sachs appointed NATO’s former Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen as a financial consultant.”

Homeowner Fined $25,000 For Renting Out Home On Mobile App (AirBbB), Without A Permit – by Dorian Hargrove, GovtSlaves.info – “In February 2015, new regulations were posted on the city’s website notifying AirBnB hosts that they are required to pay transient occupancy taxes and other taxes. There was also mention that some hosts may need to obtain city permits to rent out rooms on home-sharing apps, a long and tedious process, as reported by the Voice of San Diego. Before that, however, there was little information from the city on the requirements for home-sharing. Currently, several hundred homeowners rent rooms or their home on AirBnB as well as other similar websites. None, as of now, have obtained permits, leaving all at risk for hefty fines.”

Geologist predicted EPA would intentionally pollute Animas River to secure federal funding – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “…days before the incident, retired geologist Dave Taylor wrote to the editors of the Silverton Standard & the Miner newspaper that he believed there would be an intentional breach with ulterior motives behind it… ‘Based on my 47 years of experience as a professional geologist,’ Taylor wrote, ‘it appears to me that the EPA is setting your town and the area up for a possible Superfund blitzkrieg.’.. Taylor references a June meeting between the newspaper’s editors and a representative from the EPA, who reportedly told them ‘we don’t have an agenda’ – meaning the agency – a statement which Taylor described as ‘either ignorant naivety or an outright falsehood.’.. He went on to lay out ‘the scenario that will occur based on my experience,’ in which he says that, after the plugging of the breached dam, exfiltrating water will be retained behind the ramparts, ‘accumulating at a rate of approximately 500 gallons per minute.’.. In the long run, he believes the “grand experiment” of essentially putting a cork back in the bottle will “fail.” Then, he believes, the EPA will come back and say that, since its plan failed, ‘we will have to build a treatment plant at a cost to taxpayers’ of hundreds of millions of dollars… ‘Reading between the lines, I believe that has been the EPA’s plan all along…’ ”

Marvin_HearndonCoal Fly Ash Used In Chemtrail Aerosols: Geophysicist Produces Conclusive Evidence – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “Marvin Herndon is no ordinary geophysicist… It is his extraordinarily diverse background, deep and broad knowledge base, as well as unique skill set which distinguishes him from his peers… Two Test Methods Were Used That Produced Almost Identical Results: The results of two different test methods, both of which compared the composition of the aerosolized particulates with the known elements from coal fly ash, were not just compelling, they were overwhelming similar. That virtually identical results were arrived at provides an excellent legal basis for class action suits to proceed successfully. Both individuals and families, communities and businesses, which have been injured by ongoing geoengineering operations, now have sufficient scientific evidence to sue the government for both compensatory and punitive damages.”

Erdogan’s constitution ambitions refuse to fade – from PressTV.ir – ““There is a president with de facto power in the country (ME!), not a symbolic one. The president should conduct his duties for the nation directly, but within his authority. Whether one accepts it or not, Turkey’s administrative system has changed,” Erdogan said in the Black Sea province of Rize on Friday, AFP reported… ‘Now, what should be done is to update this de facto situation in the legal framework of the constitution,’ he added… He also described the Justice and Development Party (AKP) as a ‘symbol of honesty.’ ”

Self-DriverWhy a Future Ride in a Self-Driving Car Could Be a Trip to Advertising Hell – Self-driving cars are a marketer’s dream come true, and a possible nightmare for passengers – by Eric C. Evarts, Alternet.org “Ubiquitous driverless taxis are the end game for all these efforts. Such a system could threaten not only taxis and ride-sharing services, it could disrupt the entire transportation industry and even the very roots of the American car ownership model. If you can summon a car to whisk you anywhere you want, any time, why buy one that will sit in your driveway for most of the week?.. The promise is that passengers could work, play games, watch movies, or even drink alcohol in the car. Along the way, the ad for the Cheesecake Factory could appear in the Netflix show you’re watching, and if you click on it, Netflix could place your order and the car would drive you to pick it up. The Cheesecake Factory, Netflix, Google, the automaker, and the Sprint or AT&T communication service provider could all shave off a slice of revenue from your transaction.”

Pipelineistan — the Iran-Pak-China Connection – by Pepe Escobar – “This is a major Pipelinestan gambit, as Asia Times has previously reported. And as a side note, as soon as IP goes online, all those years of incessant harassing by successive Bush and Obama administrations will finally come down to nought… Even before Zarif hit Pakistan something serious was going on in … Karamay. You may have not heard of Karamay, but this town in Xinjiang is right at the center of the Eurasian action; it has just hosted the 2015 China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Forum… As we all know, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is an absolutely key component, worth $46 billion, of the China-driven New Silk Roads. CPEC will link Kashgar in Xinjiang to the Arabian Sea port of Gwadar via highways (essentially an upgrade of the fabled Karakoram Highway), railways, industrial parks, fiber optic networks and – eventually – a pipeline… And that pipeline will be no less than an extension up north of IP.”

Catherine_Austin_FittsUS Military Uses IMF and World Bank to Launder 85% of Its Black Budgetby Jake Anderson, ActivistPost.com – “However, of greater interest to some may be the clandestine nature and full scope of the black budget, which, according to analyst Catherine Austin Fitts, goes far beyond classified appropriations. Based on her research, some of which can be found in her piece “What’s Up With the Black Budget?” Fitts concludes that the during the last decade, global financial elites have configured an elaborate system that makes most of the military budget unauditable. This is because the real black budget includes money acquired by intelligence groups via narcotics trafficking, predatory lending, and various kinds of other financial fraud… Fitts has been researching this issue since 2001, when she began to believe that a financial coup d’etat was underway. Specifically, she suspected that the banks, corporations, and investors acting in each global region were part of a “global heist,” whereby capital was being sucked out of each country. She was right.”

‘Tis an Illiquidity that Blows No Good – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “Q: Why can’t people easily sell their investments during a time of “low liquidity”?.. A: Because the potential buyers prefer to hold their cash rather than buy that particular investment… Q: Why do potential buyers prefer to hold their cash?.. A: Because the value and purchasing power of their cash is rising… Q: Is there a commonly-understood, economic term that signifies circumstances when the purchasing power of cash is rising?.. A: Yes—“deflation”… Implication: “Low liquidity” and “illiquidity” are simply esoteric terms used to describe periods of deflation… “Deflation” is usually a characteristic of an economic downturn, recession or, especially, a depression… It follows that periods of “illiquidity” are consistent with deflation and economic depression.”

Obama Administration building personal info database to divide Americans by race – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by Hoover Institute Media Fellow Paul Sperry, writing in the New York Post recently, the effort will become part of Obama’s legacy: It amounts to the federal government’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race, with the end goal being ‘racial and economic justice.’.. What’s more, Sperry notes, this extraordinary data collection is being done without most Americans’ knowledge (or consent). In particular, administration racial analysts are mining and amassing personal data related to health, home loans, credit cards, places of employment, neighborhoods and even the manner in which children in schools are disciplined – all in an effort to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites… The centerpiece, if you will, of the Obama-led initiative is a database known as Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, which was built by HUD and was introduced in early July. The purpose is to “racially balance the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code,” Sperry writes. The database will literally map every U.S. neighborhood using four racial groups – white, Asian, Hispanic/Latino or black/African-American – and then publish “geospatial data” showing racial imbalances.”

Patrick_Roddie-at-EPA(San Francisco) Geoengineering Activist Patrick Roddie Testifies Before the EPA (w/Video – 10 min) – by Peter A. Kirby, ActivistPost.com – “This last Tuesday, August 11, a group of geoengineering activists including San Francisco’s intrepid researcher and citizen journalist Patrick Roddie testified before the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Patrick went on record about the hard evidence showing the mountains of metal raining down upon us and this Project’s massive environmental fallout. They don’t have any excuses now. They have been informed. The EPA is now legally bound to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. If they don’t, THEY MAY BE PROSECUTED. Joining Mr. Roddie are testifying activists: Jim Lee, Amanda Bayes and Max Bliss. Here is Patrick’s testimony…”

Open Letter From Paris Climate Change Conference Participant Sounds The Alarm – Upcoming Global Climate Change Agreement Ignores Geoengineering, Precursor To One World Government – Activist Michael Murphy Warns About Draconian Climate Change Legislation In The Works – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “Dear Fellow Chemtrail/Geoengineering Activists, I am writing to share what I have learned, as well as express my concerns, after attending the ‘Our Common Future Under Climate Change’ in Paris, France last week. This meeting was the precursor to a global climate agreement and global government which, if allowed to form, will essentially become a carbon dictatorship whereby every aspect of our lives will be controlled by the corporate/governmental complex. The planned signing of this global climate agreement is scheduled to occur this coming December in Paris. Upon further reflection on this past meeting, it is now clear that there is a direct correlation between geoengineering and the climate change agendas. I now believe this to be the most important time and focus of our activism.”

“Homegrown Terrorists”: New US Draconian Laws Usher in the New World Order – by Joachim Hagopian, GlobalResearch.ca – “Another highly revealing, equally disturbing eye opener is news of the Pentagon’s recently released Law of War Manual calling for open season on journalists as belligerents and enemies of the state. Apparently the US killing machine in its wanton lust for war crime atrocities no longer feels comfortable embedding even the MSM presstitutes for either Jade Helm or future military conflicts around the world. Now journalists are declared the unwanted enemy, particularly those from independent news outlets bent on exposing Empire evildoing… The 1165-page new laws of war manual give license to kill civilians with no pretense of concern as “collateral damage” anymore. Now they too are the apparent enemy lurking in every country where black ops are fighting, currently active in upwards of near three quarters of the earth’s nations. Human life on this planet in the twenty-first century under the already here and now New World Order is the US military’s latest enemy target. After all, we’re all casualties in this globalist genocidal war against humanity.”

Broccoli_PlantVegetable Extract Treats Autism Better Than Drugs – by Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo.com – “Dietary sulforaphane, of recognized low toxicity, was selected for its capacity to reverse abnormalities that have been associated with ASD, including oxidative stress and lower antioxidant capacity, depressed glutathione synthesis, reduced mitochondrial function and oxidative phosphorylation, increased lipid peroxidation, and neuroinflammmation… ‘Of all the natural substances we have reviewed with potential value in the treatment of ASD, sulforaphane, a molecule found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, is perhaps the most promising candidate.’ “

An OPEN LETTER To Pope Francis Regarding Global Climate Change – The Geoengineering Component of Global Climate Change MUST be Acknowledged and Eliminated – by Concerned Residents of Planet Earth, TheMilleniumReport.com – “Which brings us to the urgent purpose of this open letter. According to hard scientific evidence, some of which has been submitted to Governor Jerry Brown of California, it appears that the regular IPCC research and reporting on this matter has ignored a major component of GCC. As the subject title of this letter indicates, that component is GEOENGINEERING. In fact, there are those GCC investigators who now assert that geoengineering may be the primary anthropogenic component of Global Climate Change, not CO2… …only when the true root causes of GCC have been scientifically proven and received a sufficient consensus, should they be used to formulate an official response. However, all of the most essential conclusions must be first acknowledged and agreed upon by the world community of nations. Only when the profound and pervasive causes of GCC, such as the now ubiquitous geoengineering program utilizing chemtrails, are eliminated by every reasonable means necessary will the planet move in the right direction.”

Julius_CorleyAdult Medical Kidnapping in New York: 1950s Air Force Veteran Held Hostage in Hospital – from HealthImpactNews.com – “The family sat quietly in the waiting area until after visiting hours, wondering why the release was taking so long… ‘They told us the risks of taking him home. Risks were: may not get medication and could fall on floor and die. My mother, also his Health Proxy and POA, was allowed to sign the AMA form in front of the attending physician, Vijay Khatiwala and the director of Hospital Medicine, Andrea Porrovecchio and told (us) she was waiting for a discharge summary until 4 hours later the medical director, Purvi D. Shah, along with Montefiore Hospital police, came and said that he can’t leave and that his removal would be illegal. Purvi Shah, along with security and fellow staff blocked us from vacating with him.’ -Grandson Laredo Regular… Since June 1, 2015, Laredo and his mother have been trying to get someone to help them remove Julius from Montefiore Wakefield Hospital… Laredo also tells us that the Attending Physician refuses to give the family and legal guardians any printed descriptions of the medications or treatments they are giving him.” (emph. added)

Kurdish villagers under fire in PKK-controlled Iraq say Turkey is ‘no different from Isis’– by Cathy Otten, Independent.co.uk – “Dilzar Mustafa, 29, who lives in a town near Zargali, said he heard the bombing raids in the early hours of Saturday morning… ‘We saw smoke rising from the village,’he told The Independent. ‘When we arrived we saw total mess and destruction. I saw several dead bodies and houses that were destroyed, including the village’s mosque that was partly damaged.’.. Turkey began air strikes against Isis in Syria and the PKK, which is also one of the main forces battling Isis on the ground in northern Iraq, alongside its Kurdish sister group, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria, on 24 July… PKK spokesman Zagros Hiwa told The Independent that the air attacks, of which there are estimated to have been hundreds so far, had “unilaterally and practically ended the peace process” between Turkey and the PKK. He described the strikes as an effort to weaken the PKK under the cover of fighting Isis, whom the PKK accuse Turkey of aiding.”

3-Eurasian-AmigosThe Imperial Designs on Iran The Masters of the Universe seem to believe that the “pivot to Asia” won’t work if Iran is not part, as a vassal state, of the imperial design for Southwest Asia. Well, listen to Khamenei; that won’t happen. – by Pepe Escobar, VeteransNewsNow.com – “Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has been extra busy “selling” the deal with the P5+1 in Vienna to internal public opinion. He never tires to stress that once foreign businesses enter Iran, they will act as a barrier against the reinstatement of sanctions – which is now the Holy Grail of US neocons and neoliberalcons. Iranian planners are busy drafting the pathways for the reconstruction of the country’s core economic sectors. Iranian oil and natural gas projects – many with input from foreign energy majors – may be worth $185 billion by 2020… On July 20, the UN Security Council unanimously (15-0) endorsed the Vienna deal — and the termination of seven UN resolutions imposing sanctions on Iran since 2006. That provoked shrieks of desperation in that nest of corporate paperboys – the US Congress. Someone should have explained to that lot this is an international deal.”

Greek_NosediveGreek stock exchange plummets 23% as it reopens after 5-week closure – from RT.com – “However, some limitations for market trading were kept in place. Greek traders are able to buy stocks, bonds and other financial instruments only through new acquisitions, such as remittances from abroad or contributions from customers, as well as proceeds from the sale of shares or withdrawal from the investment accounts in brokerage companies in Greece, Greece’s Finance Ministry said Monday. This comes along with the continuation of the restrictions on capital movement. Restrictions are not applied to foreign investors operating on the Greek market before the trading suspension in June, the ministry added… ‘The situation in Greek equity markets will have to get a lot worse before it gets better,’ Luca Paolini, Pictet Asset Management’s chief strategist in London, told Bloomberg News. ‘There are still critical risks to be resolved.’ ”

Greek ex-finance minister warns Spain of Greece’s fate – from PressTV.ir – “The former Greek minister made the remarks during an interview with the Spanish daily El Pais, published on Sunday… ‘The danger of becoming Greece is always there and it will become reality if the same mistakes that were imposed on Greece are repeated,’ Varoufakis said… He called on Spaniards to evaluate their country’s needs after looking at ‘their own economic and social situation.’.. The warning by Varoufakis came following Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s recent move to cite the financial crisis in Greece in order to promote the Spanish government’s crisis management plan before key general elections expected to be held by the end of the year.”

German_march-Press_FreedomOver 2,000 march in Berlin to support journalists accused of ‘treason’ for leak – from PressTV.ir – “Hundreds of protestors came out in Berlin on Saturday to show their support for two journalists from a German news website that were accused of state treason for leaking information on online surveillance… The two bloggers, Markus Beckedahl and Andre Meister from the prominent Netzpolitik.org news website, had been under investigation for quoting an intelligence report on the expansion of a national online snooping program. But, for now, the probe has been suspended for “the greater good” of protecting freedom of the press… Demonstrators walked from the central Friedrichstrasse district to the Justice Ministry, carrying signs bearing the slogan: “For fundamental rights and freedom of the press.” Signs with messages such as “RIP democracy,”“Fight for your digital rights,” and “Treason? Whoever reacts with such panic, surely has too much to hide!” were also seen.”
