Turkey Arrests Soldiers over Interception of Syria-bound Weapons to Terrorists

Turkish police have detained eight serving members of the army in the latest wave of arrests in a hugely controversial case over the interception last year of an alleged consignment of arms bound for Syria, reports said on Saturday.

Arrest warrants were issued for 10 soldiers, eight of whom had been detained by Friday night, the official Anatolia news agency reported.

They have been accused of membership of a terrorist group, impeding the work of the government and espionage, it said. They should now appear in court to decide whether to remand them in custody ahead of trial.

Authenticated documents circulated on the internet claimed that the trucks, which were seized last year in January 2014, were Turkish National Intelligence Organisation (MIT) vehicles delivering weapons to Syrian opposition groups fighting President Bashar al-Assad.

The documents reported that the trucks were transporting missiles, mortars and anti-aircraft ammunition. The Gendarmerie General Command, which authored the reports, alleged, “The trucks were carrying weapons and supplies to the al-Qaeda terror organisation.”

Turkey has vehemently denied aiding hardline rebels in Syria, such as the Islamic State group, although it wants to see Assad toppled.

Foreign Policy Diary 'Macedonia Crisis'

Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said events in Macedonia were “unfolding against the background of the government’s refusal to join the policy of sanctions against Russia and the vigorous support Skopje gave to the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project”. Russia’s foreign ministry on Saturday followed Mr Lavrov’s comments with a statement citing Serbian media reports of the arrest of a Montenegrin citizen whom “assisted Kosovo-Albanian extremists” in Macedonia.

CONFIRMED: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico's Most Notorious Drug Cartel

An investigation by El Universal has found that between 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an agreement with Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organisation to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs in exchange for information on rival cartels.

Sinaloa, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.

There have long been allegations that Guzman, considered the “world’s most powerful drug trafficker,” coordinates with American authorities.

But the El Universal investigation is the first to publish court documents that include corroborating testimony from a DEA agent and a Justice Department official.

Clinton Personally Told Ansar al-Sharia Behind Benghazi a Day BEFORE She Blamed Video

Hillary Clinton was personally emailed by Sidney Blumenthal two days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya with specific information tying the terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia to the consulate attack. Ms. Clinton read and responded to the email. The next day Secretary Clinton spoke at Andrews Air Force Base and claimed specifically that the attack was because of "an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with." We now know that Ms. Clinton knowingly lied thanks to secret emails that were released today.

On September 11, Ansar al-Sharia carried out an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Ambassador J. Chris Stevens was killed in the attack. Secretary Clinton
was initially told that Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit for the attacks; however, she blamed an internet video slamming Muslims that night on MSNBC.

The next day, September 12, she received an email saying the attack could have been because of an internet video. That was quickly debunked, however, the next day.

That day, September 13, Secretary Clinton was emailed by Sidney Blumenthal, who
told her specifically that the attack had been linked to Ansar al-Sharia.

Ms. Clinton responded the same day, September 13th, saying that information "should get around asap." Without question, she was now aware that the plan had been planned and carried out by a terrorist organization.

However, the next day she and the White House specifically said that there was "no evidence" that the attack was pre-planned. In fact, Secretary Clinton specifically claimed that there was another reason for the attack: a YouTube video

In the second half, Max interviews John Aziz (Twitter: @Azizonomics) about Keynesianism and what it could do for our sick economies.

Trade and investment policies that favour a level of self sufficiency will increase GDP. Gutting industry and having a fianancial sector that 'makes money' via gambling will not.

Osama’s Bookshelf, the Latest Work of Fiction from the CIA

Desperate to counteract Seymour Hersh’s investigation into the Osama bin Laden raid, the CIA has released Osama’s reading list — after 4 years. You won’t believe what’s on the list.

The new details of the Osama Bin Laden raid are false because OBL has been dead since late 2001 or early 2002:

CrossTalk: China’s South Sea?

Beijing and Washington are not mere ships passing each other in the South China Sea – they are the two countries vying to play the commanding role in Asia. While China seeks to redress what it sees as violations of its sovereignty, Washington does have policy options, but are any of them effective?
CrossTalking with Pepe Escobar, Zachary Keck and James Bradley.

The problem with China's expansion in the South China Sea is that it is infringing on the territory of its neighbouring countries. The very fact that it is 'making facts on the ground' via its actions does not make it right, anymore than what the west has done in the past.

Look at the map of the areas claimed by China. The are unfairly claiming territory off the coast of South Vietnam down to Malaysia, and territory right off the coast of the Philippines, in violation of accepted international conventions:

Nevertheless, despite the Chinese stepping on regional toes, the US military presence, as a 'protector of trade routes', could still be replaced by regional powers, including the Chinese, so long as they restrain themselves from making territorial grabs.

Canadian Government Just Killed Free Speech

"Stephen Harper is the perfect Poster Boy for how free expression is tribalistically manipulated and exploited in the West. When the views being suppressed are ones amenable to those in power (e.g., cartoons mocking Islam), free speech is venerated; attempts to suppress those kinds of ideas show that “they have declared war on any country, like ourselves, that values freedom, openness and tolerance.” We get to celebrate ourselves as superior and progressive and victimized, and how good that feels. But when ideas are advocated that upset those in power (e.g. speech by Muslims critical of Western nations and their allies), the very same people acquiesce to, or expressly endorse, full-scale suppression. Thus can the Canadian Prime Minister pompously parade around as some sort of Guardian of Enlightenment Ideals only, three months later, to act like the classic tyrant."

Updated NASA Data: Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat

Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.
The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent.

2012 Defense Intelligence Agency Document: West Will Facilitate Rise of Islamic State “in Order to Isolate the Syrian Regime”

On Monday, May 18, the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch published a selection of formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense and State Department through a federal lawsuit.

While initial mainstream media reporting is focused on the White House’s handling of the Benghazi consulate attack, a much “bigger picture” admission and confirmation is contained in one of the Defense Intelligence Agency documents circulated in 2012: that an ‘Islamic State’ is desired in Eastern Syria to effect the West’s policies in the region.


The DIA report, formerly classified “SECRET//NOFORN” and dated August 12, 2012, was circulated widely among various government agencies, including CENTCOM, the CIA, FBI, DHS, NGA, State Dept., and many others.

A damning admission of western support for extremists. This truth must be shared widely to stop the covert wars in the Middle East.

Paul Craig Roberts on the Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism

American economist Paul Craig Roberts talks to Bonnie Faulkner of Guns And Butter.

Paul Craig Roberts is an American economist and a columnist for Creators Syndicate. He served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and was noted as a co-founder of Reaganomics. He is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and Scripps Howard News Service. He has testified before congressional committees on 30 occasions on issues of economic policy

Deregulation, especially financial deregulation, undermined the US economy. And then, when the deregulated banks were set to fail, they were bailed out by the taxpayer. Losses were socialised, while the profits were privatised. A corrupt crony system that runs on rigged market practices, not the supposed real 'free trading' environment as establishment figures claim.

Benghazi Scandal: Obama Administration Knew Weapons Were Being Sent to Al-Qaeda in Syria, New Documents Show

At 6:00 am, a few hours after the attack, the top office of the State Department sent a “spot report” on the “Attack on U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” that makes no mention of videos or demonstrations:
Four COM personnel were killed and three were wounded in an attack by dozens of fighters on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi beginning approximately 1550 Eastern Time….
The State Department has yet to turn over any documents from the secret email accounts of Hillary Clinton and other top State Department officials.
“These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them. If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president. “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

Science and Reason Takes Back Seat to 9/11 Official Story In Historic AIA Resolution Vote

In a historic vote delegates of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) overwhelmingly voted down Resolution 15-6 which called for AIA to support a new investigation of the destruction of World Trade Center building 7 on September 11th 2001. The resolution, which was introduced by AIA member Dan Barnum FAIA, was voted down overwhelmingly by a vote of 3892 - 160 meaning 96% of the delegates voted to ignore the science, the facts, and the evidence which is today common knowledge about the destruction of WTC 7!

That's right. 96% of voting
AIA delegates voted with intentions and goals outside the realm of science and reason. Could it be that to 96% of AIA delegates two planes CAN symmetrically destroy three massive towers at [nearly] freefall speed through the path of most resistance? Can it be that to 96% of AIA voting delegates a 47-story state-of-the-art tower CAN disintegrate at freefall speed due to ordinary office fires? If this was really the case, would you trust these people to build the apartment building you live in or office building you work at?

The question all truth seekers and lovers of critical thinking, science and reason should be asking then is, why the overwhelming vote? As resolution introducer Dan Barnum explained afterwards:

We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.
And Dan Barnum is quite correct here in that clearly these delegates are not voting with science and reason in mind, but with political interest instead. Perhaps they were afraid of the consequences of voting for the resolution. Very likely many of them had no understanding of the nature of the WTC collapse even as admitted by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technologies). Many of them were propagandized by voices repeating WTC destruction theories including theories that even NIST has disavowed like the diesel fuel theories

If politics were not involved and all the delegates understood the material presented by the Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth organisation, then 100% would have voted positively. Exposing the truth about this false flag attack is vital because it will end the war on terror. Those that voted 'no' are contributing to the continuation of the war.
