Syria Under Siege: Guarding Against Wolves in Sheep Clothing

Vanessa Beeley and Eva Bartlett vs. Ethical Journalism & Human Decency in the Age of Social Media Reporting

Syria is a cultural, ethnic and religious mosaic of a country with Sunnis, Shias, Druze, Christians. Additional ethnicities include Syrian Kurds, Turkmens, Armenians, Circassians, Turkmens, Greeks, Yezidis, and Shabaks.
Syria is a nation under siege with multiple forces involved, from many sides, by multiple factions and nations. We have Assad’s Forces, Syrian Kurds, FSA, Al-Nusra, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Ahrar ash-Sham, Faylaq Al-Sham. And we have multiple nations and their bases: Turkey, Iran, Russia, US-NATO, Israel.
With so many factions involved, so many divided geographical areas, and so many diverging foreign interests, how do journalists go about factual and unbiased reporting on Syria? How can this be done through ethical journalism, but most importantly with human decency? How can outsiders sift through information and misinformation bombardment, and detect facts versus agenda and biased-based reporting?

William Binney "Military Industrial Complex Wants New Cold War & Is Behind Anti-Russian Stories."

The Russians are reacting to Western aggression. In Ukraine they reacted to a Western-backed coup, in Syria it was in reaction to a proxy war, and the DNC email "hack" was a leak, having nothing to do with Russia (where the leaker, Seth Rich, in all likelihood, was subsequently murdered). Everything bad is blamed on Russia.

Bill Binney, a former NSA technical director, interviewed here, gives his assessment concerning this anti-Russian hysteria on the Richie Allen Show.

Propaganda Press Flailing over Amelia Earhart

Here we go again.  In what looks for all the world like desperation on the part of our national opinion molding apparatus, they’ve revived the story that some bones and parts of a skull found in 1940 on the small remote island of Nikumaroro (Gardner Island) belonged to the famous aviator, Amelia Earhart, who was lost in the Pacific, along with navigator Fred Noonan, on a trip around the world in 1937.  Those bones had been examined long ago and it was determined that they belonged to a male who was shorter than Earhart and have long since been lost, but now, would you believe, through the miracle of modern computer techniques, a single professor emeritus “expert” is telling us that those lost bones were almost certainly Amelia Earhart’s.  On top of that, this new “discovery” got saturation coverage right across the permitted political spectrum from Fox News to National Public Radio.
Just on the face of it, you might think that this was some kind of experiment to test the limits of the gullibility of the American public.  Anyone with an ounce of gumption can see that what the guy is telling us is preposterous. What’s really happening is that the official story that Earhart and Noonan simply got lost and, running out of gas, either plunged into the ocean or got marooned on that island where they crash landed, is finally completely falling apart—thanks in large measure to the dogged work of Mike Campbell, author of Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last—and they’re now pulling out all the stops in a last-gasp effort to salvage it.  The major precipitating event for this new story was likely the announcement coming out of Saipan, located very near to the U.S. territory of Guam, that plans are afoot to erect a monument there to Earhart, because that is where she died as a captive of the Japanese. The biggest problem with that for the establishment protectors of the giant falsehood about Earhart’s demise is that the monument planners see the Earhart monument, to be located near their international airport, as a tourist attraction for the island.  It would be sort of like the tourist attracton of the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam, with the big exception being that the Earhart monument would be based upon historical fact while the Anne Frank story is, from the best evidence, historical fiction.  Imagine how effective such a monument would be for bypassing the establishment opinion molders over the long haul.
Starting on the left of the permitted political spectrum among the floggers of the incredible new story, we find National Public Radio.   If you didn’t know before how thoroughly dishonest that news operation is, please notice that they make reference to the recent History Channel special that featured a photograph that purported to show Earhart and Noonan on a dock on Jaluit Atoll in the Marshall Islands and link that to its supposed debunking by a Japanese blogger.  What they don’t do is to make any mention of the subsequent debunking of the “debunker” by the Marshall Islands authorities, which is the subject of my article, “’Earhart Photo’ Debunker Debunked?”  NPR, like the rest of the mainstream press, dummied up about that:
One example of the dummying up is particularly poignant to me since it has some connection to my own formal education.  Back in March, my alma mater Davidson College (which also happens to be the alma mater of the late Clinton White House counsel, Vince Foster) offered a free online two-week course on the subject of fake news.  One of their contributing “experts” was National Public Radio (NPR) reporter Camila Domonoske, also a Davidson graduate.  Here we can watch one of her contributions to the course, explaining why the “fake news” term has almost lost all meaning. 
She makes some good points, but I think we can agree, though, that if the Marshall Islands officials are correct, the widely disseminated report that the key photograph in the History Channel Earhart presentation had to have been made in 1935 or before is not true. That is to say, what was widely reported as news has turned out to be, in fact, fake news. 
As it happens, the reporter who put out this fake news for NPR online very quickly in the wake of the story from The Guardian was young Camila Domonoske, herself.  I can find no indication online that NPR or The Guardian or any other news organ has retracted its Japanese-debunker story or has clarified it in any way in light of the latest Marshall Islands revelations, so we may now accuse them all of trading in fake news on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.
The Washington Post with its big Earhart story also made reference to the History Channel special and its supposed subsequent debunking, without mentioning the further revelations from the Marshall Islands.  It should be clear at this point that the whole History Channel hullabaloo was a set-up and that they already had their “debunking” information in hand, or they would have never run the story about the photograph in the first place. 
With this latest story, the propagandists are returning to the familiar pattern of “experts,” often wielding computer models, versus citizen eyewitnesses.  Some outstanding examples of this genre come readily to mind, the first being that of TWA 800.  Scores of witnesses saw a missile streaking up toward the airplane, but the CIA produced a computer-generated video that purported to show how the stricken airplane itself soared upward after an internal explosion, somehow fooling all the witnesses, and that was the story that the public was told.  ABC News in 2003 turned to experts with computers to “prove” that all those people who heard or saw shots fired from the area of the grassy knoll and the witnesses to JFK’s autopsy were all wrong.  More recently the hotshots at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) trotted out a computer simulation to show us that the 9/11 controlled demolition of Building 7 that we can all see clearly was not that at all, but a spontaneous building collapse caused by a small fire in one corner of the building.

Cherry Blossoms Freeze in Storm Toby, West Coast Floods & Deep Mountain Snows (Adapt 2030)

Nor'easter 4.0 rolls along the US and Canadian East coasts, the media names it Winter Storm Toby, but neglects to say 4th of this type of storm in 2018. This will leave record snows along the east coast with 12-18 inches in NYC. Cherry blossoms are delayed by 10 das due to cold and the European superfreeze 2.0 brings heavy snows to Spain and France.

A Monstrous Strategic Mistake (Kevin Rudd)

John Howard’s decision to commit thousands of Australian troops to the invasion of Iraq 15 years ago ranks as one of the two great failures of Australian foreign policy since the Second World War.

The other is Menzies’ decision to send forces to Vietnam. Both cases represented an abysmal failure of Australian political leadership, driven by an unnecessary capitulation to strategically foolhardy decisions by the US administrations of the time.

Both decisions were taken without independent Australian analysis of the legitimacy of American war aims, the credibility of American military strategy to both win the war and secure the peace, as well as the long-term consequences for Australian national interests.

And both turned out to be strategic disasters against virtually every measure. 

In the case of Iraq, despite the heroic efforts of US, British and Australian troops, we have witnessed: the outbreak of sectarian violence between the Shia majority and the Sunni minority; the effective expulsion of Christians from a region where they had managed to cohabit with Muslims for more than 1,300 years; the "gifting" of Iraq to Iran within the wider strategic balance in the Middle East; and a decade after the US-led invasion, the implosion of Iraq into another full-scale civil war, coupled with the emergence of brand new terrorist organisations for whom Iraq would become the principal base of operations against Syria, the wider Middle East and Europe.

Yet while the Iraq War is now almost universally regarded in the US and the UK as a profound strategic error, John Howard remains totally unrepentant.

Howard’s formal justification for going to war was outlined in his statement to Parliament on 18 March 2003. His case rested on five core arguments. First, that Iraq possessed an "arsenal" of chemical and biological weapons. Second, that Iraq was in pursuit of a nuclear capability. Third, that the UN’s disarmament efforts on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction had failed. Fourth, that a failure to dismantle Iraq’s WMD capabilities would encourage other rogue states like North Korea to continue their own nuclear programs. Fifth, that allowing Iraq to retain its WMD capabilities would make it possible for terrorist groups like al-Qaeda to obtain WMDs, threatening the security of other states including Australia.

The problem for Howard was not just that each of his justifications for going to war would prove to be false. It was that the intelligence received by his government before the war did not justify any of these claims. Put simply, Howard lied to the Australian public.

Should anyone doubt this, it’s worth reading the report of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security of 2003, chaired by the late David Jull, a senior Liberal MP appointed by Howard himself. After examining formal assessments from Australia’s two analytical intelligence agencies, the committee concluded that Howard’s core arguments--that Iraq had WMDs and that these might end up with terrorist groups- were not supported by the evidence.

Howard chose to ignore the advice delivered to him by Australia’s Defence Intelligence Organisation. In reports sent to Howard personally between September 2002 and March 2003, he was warned there was "no evidence" that Iraq had restarted chemical weapons production, and "that there was no known…production". He was also advised in late 2002 that Iraq obtaining fissile material was an unlikely event and, even more starkly, "that Iraq does not have nuclear weapons".

Howard also argued repeatedly that "if the world cannot disarm Iraq it has no hope of disciplining North Korea". Howard just made this up. And has been spectacularly disproven by events since.

Then there was Howard’s deliberate conflation of the post-September 11 threat of terrorism with the "necessity" of removing Saddam Hussein. But Howard just made this up as well. In its assessment of February 10 2003, Britain’s Joint Intelligence Committee concluded there was “no intelligence that Iraq had provided chemical or biological materials to al-Qaeda”, and that the “threat [from al-Qaeda] would be heightened by military action against Iraq”.

Other arguments would also be put from time to time by Howard, including a new-found interest in human rights. Saddam Hussein was certainly a brutal dictator. But while it’s estimated that 250,000 Iraqis, if not more, were killed under Saddam’s rule, in the period from March 2003 to June 2006 alone it’s estimated that some 601,000 Iraqis were killed. Four million Iraqi refugees had also been created as of 2007.

Finally, Howard knew that participating in the invasion of Iraq was not mandated under ANZUS. The Treaty does not mandate combined military action in an area outside the treaty area, namely the Pacific. Nor had there been an attack on the armed forces of the treaty partners, or an attack on the metropolitan territory of either party. Howard’s use of ANZUS to support his case for war was again factually wrong. Australia going to war was an entirely discretionary decision by him.

In virtually every speech Howard has given on Iraq since 2003, he has also sought to justify his decision to go to war on the grounds that I too had said at the time that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. As in fact had most people. But there is a small problem with this argument.

Like most Australians then, I had no access to intelligence material. I accepted the government’s claims about the existence of Iraqi WMDs at face value - it didn’t cross my mind that Howard would flagrantly misrepresent its content. In my mind, the question was what the international community, including Australia, should do about it - UN diplomacy or unilateral war. Labor chose the former. Howard the latter.

The second source I used was the Federation of American Scientists, which produced a report in 2000 that listed Iraq as one of 25 states possessing chemical weapons, 19 states possessing biological weapons, and 16 states with ballistic missile systems.The question that raised was why single out Iraq for unnatural attack?

Fifteen years later, its time for Howard, Abbott and Turnbull to finally publicly accept the monstrous strategic mistake they made in Australia’s name. If only to warn future conservative governments not to embark on yet an other such unilateral military folly in the future.

Kevin Rudd is a former prime minister of Australia. This article is drawn form his book, Not for the Faint-Hearted.

You can see that the decision to go to war against Iraq in 2003 was a war of aggression. It was a War Crime. Iraq did not threaten any Western country, and there were no links to Al Qaeda - the intelligence said so. The conclusion of the US October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate stated that the only way Iraq might be a threat is if it was attacked (see second link below).

The Unraveling False Flag Skripal Incident - Stephen Lendman

According to ABC News, citing unnamed US intelligence sources, 38 Brits were affected by exposure to a military-grade nerve agent.

It’s fake news. Military-grade nerve agents are the most toxic known chemical substances. Exposure assures death in minutes at most.

The Skripal incident lacks credibility, including the official narrative claiming father and daughter Skripal are seriously ill from alleged nerve agent poisoning, not dead.

They and anyone else would have died near-instantly if exposed to a deadly military-grade nerve agent.

Russia’s London embassy said said UK authorities refused a request to grant consular access to Skripal and his daughter, Russian citizens.

No information about their condition or whereabouts was provided – flagrant Vienna Convention violations. Russian chemical weapons expert Leonid Rink explained the following:

“Why do you think the British refuse to give (a) sample (of the alleged nerve agent) to Moscow?”
“Because no matter how hard the specialists try, the manufacturing technology always differs a little.”

“It’s a kind of a ‘handwriting sample.’ It will immediately become clear that this is not a Russian technology,” adding:

Forensic analysis “could easily (prove the alleged nerve agent) was not ‘cooked’ in Russia” -exposing the official narrative Big Lie.

Britain earlier had access to “Novichok” technology, Rink explained. If a poisoning incident occurred as claimed, UK operatives are the likely culprit.

Novichok-type technology “is commonly available for professionals…Any pharmaceutical corporation, any chemical corporation is capable of manufacturing it in their laboratories,” Rink stressed.

“It is absolutely certain that there are (Novichok-type) specialists in the UK.” Blaming Russia for the alleged Skripal poisoning incident is a bald-faced lie.

Media scoundrels are complicit for failing to expose it, disgracefully going along with the official fake news narrative.

According to The Times of London, three people in Britain alone are seriously ill from some kind of “significant poisoning” – no one else as ABC News and UK counterterrorism head Neil Basu claimed.

Dr. Stephen Davies, a Salisbury, UK NHS Foundation Trust emergency medicine consultant, wrote The Times, saying:

No patients experienced “significant poisoning” symptoms other than Skripal, his daughter, and UK police detective Nick Bailey, adding:

“Several people have attended the emergency department concerned that they may have been exposed.”

“None ha(ve) had symptoms of poisoning and none ha(ve) needed treatment.”

“(B)lood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved.”

If a deadly military-grade nerve agent was released, everyone exposed would die near-instantly. Clearly, the Skripals and detective Nick Bailey were not affected by something this dangerous.

The cause of their condition remains unexplained. The official narrative is a bald-faced lie – irresponsibly blaming Russia for an incident it had nothing to do with.

Yet disturbing accusations persist, escalating tensions more than already, risking possible East/West confrontation if this ruse is carried too far.

The article here makes a VERY good point. If this was the type of nerve agent being described then the victims should be dead.

UK Conspiracy of Silence – Rape Gangs Exposed – Truth Teller’s Twitter Account Shut Down (Jon Rappoport)

For MANY years, law enforcement in the UK has studiously ignored and rejected young girls’ claims of serial rape by gangs.

These gangs “groom” the girls with drugs and alcohol—and eventually physical coercion. Sometimes the girls are trafficked to other locations in the country where they are preyed on and raped.

A major reason the police have been sweeping these crimes under the rug? Political correctness. Fear of being labeled racist. Because…

Well, here is what just happened to Tommy Robinson (twitter), as Breitbart reports:

“The controversial activist Tommy Robinson has been suspended from Twitter for quoting research which found that nearly 90 per cent of convicted grooming gang members in the UK are Muslim.”

“Mr. Robinson was suspended from the social media platform for 7 days for stating the findings of the Quilliam Foundation think tank, whose founder worked as an adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron on issues around Islam.”

“’90% of grooming gang convictions are Muslims,’ Mr. Robinson wrote in a tweet on February 25th, rounding up the number identified by the Quilliam research, which found that 84 per cent of convicted groomers [since 2005] were Muslim in December last year.”

“Twitter decided the statement of fact ‘violated the Twitter rules’ and ‘temporarily limited some of your account features’, which included tweeting publicly on the website – effectively censoring him for a week.”

“Former UK government adviser Maajid Nawaz responded by messaging Twitter directly, informing them Mr. Robinson had stated a fact rather than saying anything defamatory, hateful, or untrue.”

Apparently, Twitter believes hiding the truth is moral. Making a connection between rape gangs and immigration, revealing an actual effect of mass immigration—that’s not permitted.

To get a sense of the grooming rape gang situation in the UK— now that the police have been shamed into taking action by public outcry and by independent media investigations—here is an article from the British press. The Independent, 2/24: GROOMING GANGS ABUSED [RAPED] MORE THAN 700 GIRLS AND WOMEN AROUND NEWCASTLE AFTER POLICE APPEARED TO PUNISH VICTIMS:

“Sexual exploitation [rape] is happening in towns and cities across the country,” serious case review warns.”

“Grooming gangs abused [raped] more than 700 women and girls around Newcastle with ‘arrogant persistence’ after police appeared to punish victims while letting the perpetrators walk free, a case review has found.”

“It warned that abusers are still preying on [raping] girls across the UK, and called for urgent action from the Government.”

“After examining evidence on the abuse [rape] of hundreds of girls in the North-east, investigators concluded that local authorities claiming there is no grooming in their area ‘are not looking hard enough’.”

“Northumbria Police had identified more than 700 potential victims of grooming in the region by August through Operation Sanctuary, but expected the number to rise.”

“The court heard how teenagers and young women were picked up off the streets, then groomed and given alcohol and drugs before being coerced or forced into sex at so-called ‘sessions’ in Newcastle’s West End.”

“Victims described being raped while they were asleep, unconscious or incapacitated after being forced to drink and take drugs.”

“’I wanted to leave but I was given drink,’ one said. ‘I kept saying no and fighting them off. I was very tired and fell asleep. When I woke, I had been raped’.”

“Another added: ‘When I was out of it they could do anything they wanted to me’.”

“The review said victims in the wider North-east included a 12-year-old girl who fell pregnant and other teenagers who underwent abortions, as well as others left with devastating long-term trauma causing substance abuse, mental illness and relationship breakdowns.”

Here is another article from the BBC (26 August 2014): ROTHERHAM CHILD ABUSE [RAPE] SCANDAL: 1400 CHILDREN EXPLOITED [RAPED], REPORT FINDS:

“At least 1,400 children were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation [rape] in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, a report has found.”

“Children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, it said.”

“The report, commissioned by Rotherham Borough Council, revealed there had been three previous inquiries [with no effect].”

“The inquiry team noted fears among council staff of being labelled ‘racist’ if they focused on victims’ descriptions of the majority of abusers as ‘Asian’ [Pakistani] men.”

“Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the latest report, said there had been ‘blatant’ collective failures by the council’s leadership, senior managers had ‘underplayed’ the scale of the problem and South Yorkshire Police had failed to prioritise the issue.”

“The inquiry team found examples of ‘children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone’.”

“The report found: ‘Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so’.”

What is described in these articles is just the beginning of the grooming rape gang horror that has been spreading all over the UK.

So an activist named Tommy Robinson simply sends out a tweet echoing a recent study identifying the convicted UK gang rapists as overwhelmingly Muslim and he’s shut down.

But of course, social media giants now have a mandate—close down people who report inconvenient truths.
The victims, the young girls, don’t matter.
They’ve been canceled out in favor of the “progressive” immigration agenda.

All of those involved in these crimes, and the cover-up, need to be imprisoned and those that are not citizens, deported.

“Jews Control Swedish Media” MP Quits

Swedish Democrat party member of Parliament Anna Hagwall has announced her resignation from all party posts and will not stand for reelection in 2018 after a furor following her exposure of the fact that a single family of Jews control the Swedish media.
The uproar followed her letter to the Aftonbladet newspaper in which she said that “ethnicity should be a factor” in determining media ownership of more than 5 percent—an obvious reference to the Jewish Bonnier family media group.

The Bonnier Group owns 96 book publishers, 42 business and trade press newspapers, 105 digital news platforms, 9 film production companies, 176 magazines, 23 major newspapers, 33 TV stations, and 33 “other” media outlets—and quite literally dominates the controlled media in Sweden.
Hagwall had earlier submitted a motion to the Swedish parliament which proposed cuts to the state subsidies paid to media in Sweden.
Although she never mentioned Jews by name, Hagwall said in an explanatory letter to the Aftonbladet that it would be a good idea to “let Bonnier’s newspapers go under” so that “no family, ethnic group, or company” could control more than 5 percent of the media.
“An entire 80 percent of the media is owned and controlled by the same owners,” Hagwell wrote. “This is not acceptable. Therefore, media ownership should be spread over many independent companies and people. In order to change this, I suggest backtracked press subsidies [for the independent media].”
When asked by Aftonbladet how the abolition of press subsidies to the country’s local newspapers reduce Bonnier’s power over the media in Sweden, Hagwall answered by email that “most small newspapers are directly or indirectly controlled by Bonnier, and why they have to be subsidized by the Swedish taxpayer is a mystery.
“Let the little Bonnier newspapers in the provinces go under, because then a void will be created which can be filled by newspapers that care about people and business owners.”
She also said that the Swedish public service broadcaster, Sveriges Television (SVT), should be switched to pay channels to “reduce SVT’s propagation of the politically correct agenda.”
The comments provoked a stream of attacks upon Hagwall, and the Swedish Democrat leadership also distanced itself from her, saying in a statement that the matter will “affect her future in the party.”
This week, Hagwall resigned her position as member of the Parliamentary Committee on Taxation and internal group leader of the Sweden Democrats’ tax policy group. She also will not seek reelection to Parliament in 2018 at the request of the party leadership, and it is currently unclear if she will continue to sit in parliament for the remainder of the current term.

America Is In Collapse - Paul Craig Roberts

From John Williams proprietary report:

“Subject to Likely Downside Annual Benchmark Revisions this Coming Friday, February Industrial Production Jumped by 1.1% (0.9% Net of Revisions), Reflecting  improbable Strength in Manufacturing and Mining. 

“Despite this perhaps premature report of industrial production gains, Given a Record 122 Months of Non-Expansion, Manufacturing Still Holds Shy of Its Pre-Recession Peak by 3.7% (-3.7%). [That peak was a decade ago!]

“Manufacturing Gains Likely Reflected Some Inventory Rebuilding Against Weakening Sales, As Disaster-Recovery Bloat Passes from the System.

“Continuing in Nonsensical Monthly Booms and Busts, February Housing Starts Activity Fell by 7.0% (-7.0%), Still Shy by 45.6% (-45.6%) of Recovering Its Pre-Recession Peak.

“First-Quarter 2018 GDP Outlook Continued to Weaken. 

“Nonetheless, the FOMC Appears Set for a Rate Hike on Wednesday.”

“Underlying Economic Reality/Conditions: Discussed frequently here, what has happened with underlying economic reality is that broad activity had continued to stagnate and to falter anew, before the multiple natural disasters began to hit in late-August 2017, with Hurricane Harvey. The ensuing natural-disaster recovery boosted fourth-quarter economic activity, in areas ranging from retail sales and industrial production to construction spending and housing starts. That background largely was ignored by the hyper-bulls in the financial markets, who touted the rapidly expanding economy. That concept also received massive popular coverage in the headline media.

“Consumer Confidence and Sentiment are booming at multi-year highs, as discussed in the Consumer Liquidity Watch (page 37). The details reflect little more than the tone of the popular press, given how those measures of relative consumer optimism are surveyed. Such was established decades ago by the late Albert Sindlinger, an original consumer pollster, and Dr. David Fan of the University of Minnesota. Restricted consumer liquidity circumstances continue to impair and to constrain broad economic activity.”

John Williams of has a long-term tradition of trying to hold US govenment data reporting agencies and financial presstiutes accountable, but as in every aspect of US reporting fantasies prevail over reality.
For example, according to the Federal Reserve and the presstitute financial press, US inflation is less than 2 percent.  Here is the Chapwood index, based on actually going out and purchasing items in the inflation basket: 

As for the great consumer economy we hear about, here are the IRS statistics of the distribution of wage earners by level of net compensation: 
50 percent of wage earners had net compensation less than $30,534 in 2016. The rich are a tiny percent of the population and cannot sustain a consumer economy.

I remember reading many decades ago that in Texas a person was not considered rich unless they were worth at least $50 million dollars. Today you can’t be on the Forbes 400 unless you are a multi-billionaire. In such a system, ordinary people have no voice or influence.  One billionaire can purchase most of the government.  The billions of dollars that the US taxpayers give to Israel each and every year purchases the rest of the government. The military/security complex, the energy, mining, and timber industries, the pharmaceuticals, agri-business, Wall Street, the big banks and all the rest make American democracy a hoax.

As for the full employment claimed by US government reporting agencies, how does full employment coexist with this reported fact from the Dallas Morning News:

Toyota Motor Company advertised the availability of 1,000 new jobs associated with moving its North American headquarters from southern California to Texas and received 100,000 applications. Where did these applications come from when the US has “full employment?”

Clearly, the US does not have full employment. The US has an extremely low rate of labor force participation, because there are no jobs to be had, and discouraged workers who cannot find jobs are not measured in the unemployment rate. Not measuring the unemployed is the basis of the low reported unemployment rate. The official US unemployment rate is just a hoax like Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction,” Assad’s “use of chemical weapons,” Russia’s “invasion of Ukraine,” “Iranian nukes,” and “Russiagate.” The list of hoaxes created by the US government and its presstitute media are endless. And the dumbshit Americans sit in front of CNN, MSNBC, NPR and the rest and absorb the indoctrination to their own peril and insignificance.

Americans live in a fantasy world about their Great Country, their Great Economy, their Great Military System that ensures them Hegemony Over the World even though after 17 years the World’s Greatest Military has been unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban in Afghanistan, their Great Everything. But in fact, insouciant Americans live in The Matrix. They have no idea of their real situation.

If Trump names John Bolton National Security Adviser, plan to die.

FINALLY! Climate Propaganda May Be Reaching A Tipping Point

Has the climate propaganda reached a point where radical climatism is leading us into dangerous negligence?

The severe winter in the northern hemisphere has been widely recorded. However, key climate information providers have altered data. The result — intended or not — has been to make the recent record lows of the winter appear normal.

November 2017 marked the onset of a very cold winter across the Northern Hemisphere. Many parts of North America and Eurasia registered record lows, breaking even 80-year records.

Below-average temperatures continued well into February, breaking records in Japan and Europe. In fact, Europe is about to experience a deep freeze due to changes in local weather patterns.

This has been accompanied by a massive drop in atmospheric temperatures across the tropics, caused by the La Niña (cooling of the tropical Pacific, which in turn cools air that circulates globally) that developed towards the end of 2017.

January of this year recorded the third highest temperature drop in the 470-month satellite record. La Niña will likely draw global temperature back down from the brief record high of late 2015 to early 2017 driven by an unusually strong El Niño.

However, the public has been misinformed because of changes to key temperature data by climate information disseminators like America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The result — again, intended or not — has been the appearance of an exaggerated warming trend.

One example is the data used to construct an average temperature for the Northeast United States. Paul Homewood, a respected scholar on the analysis of long-term climate statistics, shows that raw data recorded by local stations vary by as much as 3.1 degrees Fahrenheit from NOAA’s final adjusted “data,” which hide this winter’s severity, making it seem similar to the recent El Niño-driven highs.

Further, evidence suggests that there has been no significant increase in global average temperature during the past two decades. This sobering reality was even acknowledged by leading climate alarmists.

NOAA’s actions have further tarnished climate science research, which has been plagued in the past by numerous data alterations not only by NOAA but also by similar national agencies in Australia, Europe, and elsewhere, and by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The dangers of altering data go beyond undermining public faith in climate scientists.

spurious warming trend will result in misplaced priorities. Careless changes to the real-time weather patterns will render local administrations and communities underprepared, deciding between life and death for people who live in areas prone to extreme winters.

More shockingly, worldwide policies based on these fake warming trends divert trillions of dollars from essential development projects — providing electricity, industrialization, pure drinking water, sewage sanitation, infectious disease control, and nutrition supplements to the billions who need them — to the fight against imaginary temperatures. The result? Billions of lives shortened through ongoing hunger and disease.

Despite the evidence for a stable temperature trend, the climate alarmists continue to propagate their agenda through political institutions and mainstream media. If they’re unchecked, our entire economy, industry, and institutions will be restructured to prevent non-existent, or at most non-dangerous, human-driven warming. It will take decades for civilization to recover.

Report: Ukrainian Pilot Blamed by Russia for MH17 Crash Commits Suicide

A Ukrainian military pilot accused of shooting down a Malaysia Airlines flight has committed suicide, according to a Ukrainian media report that cites the police.

Ukrainian media says 29-year-old Capt. Vladyslav Voloshyn shot himself at his home, but his death is being investigated under the "premeditated murder" section of the Ukrainian penal code. A military service pistol found at the scene is also being looked at.

According to the BBC, Voloshyn had been in charge of the Mykolaiv airport after leaving the airforce. Before that, he flew combat missions against Russian-backed rebels, and was described by Ukraine as a war hero. However, Russia accused him of shooting down MH-17 in 2014, an allegation he called a lie.

All of the 298 passengers and crew of the Malaysia Airlines flight were killed. An international probe found that a missile was fired from a rebel-controlled territory by a launcher trucked in from Russia. However, Russia has denied any involvement.

Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting was Recorded by NSA (Bill Still)

Synopsis: Exactly what was discussed between then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton at the infamous secret tarmac meeting at the Phoenix airport was apparently recorded by the NSA.
The notorious secret meeting was held on June 27, 2016, just a few days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced that the Justice Department would not be prosecuting Hillary Clinton over her email scandal.
New responses to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information requests proves that President Clinton’s contention that the meeting was purely accidental is a lie. The FBI was fully aware of it days in advance as shown by the production of redacted emails which discuss the deployment of additional FBI SWAT resources which may have been covering the event.
Furthermore, the FBI attempted to cover up the tarmac meeting by targeting an FBI whistleblower. The names of the authors of a flurry of emails in search of the whistleblower have been redacted, and none of the newly-released emails show any concern about the meeting itself.
In other words, it was no secret to the FBI what was going on. In fact, top level officials may have been able to review the recordings of the event in classified settings thanks to the recording system.
The NSA is blocking the release of the recorded conversation based on a weak claim that it is covered by one of President Obama’s many executive orders.
