Will The U.S Lead The World Into Nuclear Holocaust? (ft. Ray McGovern)


Alex Jones speaks with former top CIA analyst and presidential advisor Ray McGovern about the current situation with Russia.



Important political information on this issue from Ray McGovern who sees a de-escalation, at least from the Russian side. As for the US antagonists, we can expect more of the same. Hopefully their pro-war maneuvers fall flat. This is a great interview worth checking out.

The biggest threat to peace at the moment, that would help usher in a more fully formed Police State, and provide cover for a financial (stockmarket) collapse, would appear to be from a false flag extremist attack coming from the Middle East.

The Covert Origins of ISIS


Evidence exposing who put ISIS in power, and how it was done.



One comment - ISIS might be allowed to continue operations in Syria for quite some time, rather than see them destroyed in the near term. Chaos and destruction is the goal for the neocons that drive US foreign policy.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie [About Ukraine] - Paul Craig Roberts


The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.
 
How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.
 
But there are even better reasons for understanding that Russia has not invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops.
 
One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.

Another reason is that if Putin decides he has no alternative to sending the Russian military to protect the Russian residents in eastern and southern Ukraine, Putin will send in enough troops to do the job quickly as he did in Georgia when the American and Israeli trained Georgian army invaded South Ossetia and was destroyed in a few hours by the Russian response. If you hear that 100,000 Russian troops accompanied by air cover have invaded Ukraine, it would be a more believable claim.

A third reason is that the Russian military does not need to send troops into Ukraine in order to stop the bombing and artillery shelling of the Russian populations by Washington’s puppet government in Kiev. The Russian air force can easily and quickly destroy the Ukrainian air force and artillery and, thereby, stop the Ukrainian attack on the secessionist provinces.

It was only two weeks ago that a fabricated report spread by the UK Guardian and the BBC that a Russian armored convoy entered Ukraine and was destroyed by the Ukrainian Military. And two weeks prior to that we had the hoax of the satellite images allegedly released by the US State Department that the corrupt US ambassador in Kiev spread around the world on social media allegedly showing that Russian forces were firing into Ukraine.
------------------------------------------------
The mountain of lies piled up by Western governments and media has obscured the true story. The US government orchestrated the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine and imposed a US puppet in Kiev. Washington’s puppet government began issuing threats and committing violent acts against the Russian populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet leaders attached to Ukraine. The Russian people in eastern and southern Ukraine resisted the threat brought to them by Washington’s puppet government in Kiev.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/28/washington-piles-lie-upon-lie-paul-craig-roberts/

If Russia had really invaded we would see evidence of their columns crossing the border, and confirmation from OSCE observers who are on the border, but we have nothing - only commercial satellite pictures of Russian equipment in positions on both sides of the frontier. Their point of origin is not established. Both sides within Ukraine use the same equipment.

Once again the evidence of Russian involvement does not exist.

This reminds me of the NATO claim about a huge build up of 40,000 troops on the Russian border in March which was revealed as a complete lie an NBC news crew that drove the border and saw nothing. Later it was revealed that the NATO satellite pictures were of a military exercise taken some years earlier.

The reason for the hysterical Russian 'invasion' accusation made by Kiev, which was echoed in various western capitals, is because the Ukraine Army in the East is losing badly.

On Thursday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Russian troops had entered Ukraine. The statement came as NATO released satellite images that it claimed showed Russian self-propelled artillery on Ukrainian territory. Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, share his thoughts on how credible these statements may be.

Panic Alert: Mainstream Pounces on & Parrots Kiev's 'Invasion' Rhetoric


Claims by the Ukrainian President that Russia had invaded his country saw many media outlets take up the story and run with it.



There is no invasion as characterised in the mainstream reports. There are OSCE monitors on the borders and they have not seen anything.

Should Australia be Involved in Stopping ISIS? Background Information: A Letter to Australian Politicians (forwarded to Media)


I've been emailing various Australian politicians concerning their deliberations to join in future US attacks against ISIS. Feel free to share this message that cuts at the theatre currently being played out in the mainstream press.

LETTER:

With talk about the rise of ISIS in Iraq and whether we should become involved, you should consider the following information.

As a geopolitical blogger you ...should know that ISIS has only become a formidable force because of backing from various nation states such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan and Qatar - states in religious and economic opposition to the nations targeted by these extremists.

The US has deliberately failed to act against ISIS or its Middle Eastern support network because they are also involved in using the group as a tool to put pressure on the pro-Iranian Maliki Government, now removed, and to attack Syria. This is why early requests from Iraq for air support were denied.

You should also realise that the present air attacks conducted by the US against ISIS, after they moved too close to their oil interests in Kurdish controlled Iraq, were extremely limited.

The idea that it is difficult, politically or otherwise, to hit columns of Toyota pick-up trucks in the open desert, is theatre - especially coming from an Administration that does not ask permission to conduct drone strikes.

Months ago I predicted that little action would be taken by the US as ISIS rampaged across Iraq. They are 'our terrorists'.

For months this sorry saga has played out in broad daylight through Western Iraq and Northern Syria and no real action was taken. You will not get any real answers from the US - considering that they deliberately lied about Assad using chemical weapons against his own people (UN-backed, and MIT-backed evidence shows that the rebels were responsible for each instance vs bald faced US assertions).

You might try talking to ASIS chiefs about what is really going on over there, but having some idea as to how intelligence people operate, it's likely they will repeat whatever lie they think is convenient.

I strongly urge you and/or members of you staff to watch (and share) the following video featuring Asia Times journalist Pepe Escobar that sums up the situation. You can easily do more research if you choose to.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=928zEzibs-w&list=UU1vTH0ByVIcIOB83FbvHP7Q

In summation, ISIS forces can be largely destroyed using US airpower at relatively short notice, and it can be cut off from its Nation State support network, although the latter proposition would be more difficult - the problem is the geopolitical aspect to the situation.

You must understand that ISIS, like other extremist forces in the Middle East and North Africa, are doing the work of foreign policy makers in Washington and, to a lesser extent, in Brussels (NATO).

Thanks for your time and good luck.

The Crisis in Libya Explained




A good video that explains the fact that there are many different fighting factions presently operating in Libya. However it only briefly touches on the work of outside elements. During the 2011 war foreign special forces soldiers were active in co-ordinating the battle strikes that defeated Gaddafi's troops, and there was also active sponsorship of the rebellion early on in order to promote destabilisation.

My only concern about Bitcoin is that it is a likely target for the present powers-that-should-not-be banksters.

Poroshenko Triggers 'Invasion' Alarm as Kiev Crumbles Under Militia Offensive


Ukraine's President has said Russia's invading East Ukraine - although the statement has already been rejected by Moscow. The strong rhetoric comes amid a powerful counter-offensive by anti-government forces in Ukraine's restive Eastern regions.



Eastern Ukrainian militia are well equipped with numbers of tanks, artillery and other armoured vehicles. And if Russia is aiding the rebels in the East of Ukraine it is because of the NATO backed fascists occupying Kiev that caused the conflict in the first place.

There would be no fighting if the forces from Kiev withdrew and proper elections were held with perhaps the east of the country made into a semi autonomous region.

MH17 FULLY EXPOSED!! You Won't Believe The SHOCKING TRUTH About the Ukraine FALSE FLAG


When Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down on July 17, 2014, we were immediately inundated with base propaganda trying to convince us that the shootdown could be traced back to the Kremlin. But what was this rush to judgement based on? What have we learned about the crash since then? Why has MH17 completely disappeared from the news cycle? And who really stood to benefit from the disaster? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this week's edition of The Corbett Report.



A note about some of the forensics here.

The working theory is that the Su-25 aircraft/murder weapon, which can fly to 10,000m for short durations, at first fired an R-60 heat seeking missile from a distance and then performed a beam/side attack using its 30mm cannon. One should note that the missile could have also been fired from a frontal position since modern heat seekers are all aspect weapons.

Corbett indicates alleged bullet holes in MH17. In the picture some of the holes in the skin are pushed outward as well as inward. This may be because the 30mm ammunition was of the explosive variety which would create exit holes.

In terms of the 'pristine passports'. This is not a mystery like the 911 passports. MH17 did not slam into a solid structure in a whole state but split open at altitude, spilling the contents over a wide area. Debris 'soft landed' such that you would expect to find undamaged materials. Pristine passports contained in bags are expected.

NATO is the Greatest Threat to Peace on the Planet


Under the pretext of an 'overt' Russian threat, NATO is pushing for a ‘readiness action plan’ that will bring the Cold War military bloc closer to Russian borders than ever - even despite objections from some NATO members. James Corbett, editor of the Corbett Report, an independent Japan-based news outlet, gives his perspective on the matter.

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


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

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

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

Australian Bureau of Meteorology Accused of Criminally Adjusted Global Warming


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists.

At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.

At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia's hottest year on record. This prompted Australia's alarmist-in-chief Tim Flannery - an English literature graduate who later went on to earn his scientific credentials with a PhD in palaeontology, digging up ancient kangaroo bones - to observe that global warming in Australia was "like climate change on steroids."

But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies.
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/08/25/Australian-Bureau-of-Meteorology-accused-of-Criminally-Adjusted-Global-Warming

There is no excuse for homogenizing the data here.

Airborne Transmission of Ebola


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

"led to the infection of my nurses and physician co-workers who came in contact with body fluids."

Currently the
CDC advises health care workers to use goggles and simple face masks for respiratory and eye protection, and a fitted N-95 mask during aerosol-generating medical procedures. Since so many doctors and nurses are dying in West Africa, it is clear that this level of protection is inadequate. Full face respirators with P-100 (HEPA) replacement filters would provide greater airway and eye protection, and I believe this would save the lives of many doctors, nurses and others who come into close contact with, or in proximity to, Ebola victims.

The United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases conducted a monkey to monkey Ebola study in December 1995, published in The Lancet, Vol 346. Here is a
link to the abstract, but the entire article must be purchased. Several rhesus monkeys were infected with Zaire Ebola by intramuscular injection while three control rhesus monkeys were kept in cages separated 10 feet from the infected monkeys. All of the injected monkeys died of Ebola by day 13 and 2 out of 3 control monkeys died of Ebola by 8 days after that. The authors of this study concluded that:

"The exact mode of transmission to the control monkeys cannot be absolutely determined, although the pattern of pulmonary antigen staining in one of the control monkeys was virtually identical to that reported in experimental Ebola virus aerosol infection in rhesus monkeys, suggesting airborne transmission of the disease via infectious droplets... Fomite or contact droplet transmission of the virus between cages was considered unlikely. Standard procedures in our BL4 containment laboratories have always been successful in the prevention of transmission of Ebola or Marburg virus to uninflected animals. Thus, pulmonary, nasopharyngeal, oral, or conjunctival exposure to airborne droplets of the virus had to be considered as the most likely mode of infection... Our present findings emphasize the advisability of at-risk personnel employing precautions to safeguard against ocular, oral, and nasopharyngeal exposure to the virus."
