The Ebola Story Doesn’t Smell Right — Paul Craig Roberts


The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola.

The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola.
 
Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.

Stories that don’t make sense and that are not explained naturally arouse suspicions, such as: Are US soldiers being used to test ebola vaccines and cures, or more darkly are they being used to bring more ebola back to the US?
 
I understand why people ask these questions. The fact that they will receive no investigative answer will deepen suspicions.

Uninformed and gullible Americans will respond: “The US government would never use its own soldiers and its own citizens as guinea pigs.” Before making a fool of yourself, take a moment to recall the many experiments the US government has conducted on American soldiers and citizens. For example, search online for “unethical human experimentation in the United States” or “human radiation experiments,” and you will find that federal agencies such as the Department of Defense and Atomic Energy Commission have: exposed US soldiers and prisoners to high levels of radiation; irradiated the testicles of males and tested for birth defects (high rate resulted); irradiated the heads of children; fed radioactive material to mentally disabled children.

The Obama regime’s opposition to quarantine for those arriving from West Africa is also a mystery.

Are we being sold down the river by the White House and the CDC? It certainly appears so.

Be sure to read the entire article at the link ...
 
At present US actions on ebola, as Dr Roberts pointed out, don't make much sense and only draw suspicion.
The worse thing is that there are people in various health related institutions, and appointed to similar White House positions, that are happy to see the population culled off. There are eugenists, hardcore 'environmentalists', zionist/neocons, and some strategic military (biowar) planners, that would go out of their way to help along a pandemic. Hopefully there are enough good people left in the system to keep such stooges at bay.

U.S. Sends Planes Armed with Depleted Uranium to Middle East


The U.S. Air Force says it is not halting its use of Depleted Uranium weapons, has recently sent them to the Middle East, and is prepared to use them.

A type of airplane, the A-10, deployed this month to the Middle East by the U.S. Air National Guard's 122nd Fighter Wing, is responsible for more Depleted Uranium (DU) contamination than any other platform, according to the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW). "Weight for weight and by number of rounds more 30mm PGU-14B ammo has been used than any other round," said ICBUW coordinator Doug Weir, referring to ammunition used by A-10s, as compared to DU ammunition used by tanks.

Public affairs superintendent Master Sgt. Darin L. Hubble of the 122nd Fighter Wing told me that the A-10s now in the Middle East along with "300 of our finest airmen" have been sent there on a deployment planned for the past two years and have not been assigned to take part in the current fighting in Iraq or Syria, but "that could change at any moment."

The crews will load PGU-14 depleted uranium rounds into their 30mm Gatling cannons and use them as needed, said Hubble. "If the need is to explode something -- for example a tank -- they will be used."

Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright told me, "There is no prohibition against the use of Depleted Uranium rounds, and the [U.S. military] does make use of them. The use of DU in armor-piercing munitions allows enemy tanks to be more easily destroyed."

On Thursday, several nations, including Iraq, spoke to the United Nations First Committee, against the use of Depleted Uranium and in support of studying and mitigating the damage in already contaminated areas. A non-binding resolution is expected to be voted on by the Committee this week, urging nations that have used DU to provide information on locations targeted. A number of organizations are delivering a petition to U.S. officials this week urging them not to oppose the resolution.

In 2012 a resolution on DU was supported by 155 nations and opposed by just the UK, U.S., France, and Israel. Several nations have banned DU, and in June Iraq proposed a global treaty banning it -- a step also supported by the European and Latin American Parliaments.

DU is clearly hazardous and its continued use criminal. Are US leaders too stupid or corrupt to find an alternative to using this material? The lack of imagination and lack of effort here, to replace DU, is shameful.

In 2012 a resolution on DU was supported by 155 nations and opposed by just the UK, U.S., France, and Israel. Several nations have banned DU, and in June Iraq proposed a global treaty banning it -- a step also supported by the European and Latin American Parliaments.

Wright said that the U.S. military is "addressing concerns on the use of DU by investigating other types of materials for possible use in munitions, but with some mixed results. Tungsten has some limitations in its functionality in armor-piercing munitions, as well as some health concerns based on the results of animal research on some tungsten-containing alloys. Research is continuing in this area to find an alternative to DU that is more readily accepted by the public, and also performs satisfactorily in munitions."

"I fear DU is this generation's Agent Orange," U.S. Congressman Jim McDermott told me. "There has been a sizable increase in childhood leukemia and birth defects in Iraq since the Gulf War and our subsequent invasion in 2003. DU munitions were used in both those conflicts. There are also grave suggestions that DU weapons have caused serious health issues for our Iraq War veterans. I seriously question the use of these weapons until the U.S. military conducts a full investigation into the effect of DU weapon residue on human beings."

Doug Weir of ICBUW said renewed use of DU in Iraq would be "a propaganda coup for ISIS." His and other organizations opposed to DU are guardedly watching a possible U.S. shift away from DU, which the U.S. military said it did not use in Libya in 2011. Master Sgt. Hubble of the 122nd Fighter Wing believes that was simply a tactical decision. But public pressure had been brought to bear by activists and allied nations' parliaments, and by a UK commitment not to use DU.

DU is classed as a Group 1 Carcinogen by the World Health Organization, and evidence of health damage produced by its use is extensive. The damage is compounded, Jeena Shah at the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) told me, when the nation that uses DU refuses to identify locations targeted. Contamination enters soil and water. Contaminated scrap metal is used in factories or made into cooking pots or played with by children.

CCR and Iraq Veterans Against the War have filed a Freedom of Information Act Request in an attempt to learn the locations targeted in Iraq during and after the 1991 and 2003 assaults. The UK and the Netherlands have revealed targeted locations, Shah pointed out, as did NATO following DU use in the Balkans. And the United States has revealed locations it targeted with cluster munitions. So why not now?

"For years," Shah said, "the U.S. has denied a relationship between DU and health problems in civilians and veterans. Studies of UK veterans are highly suggestive of a connection. The U.S. doesn't want studies done." In addition, the United States has used DU in civilian areas and identifying those locations could suggest violations of Geneva Conventions.

Iraqi doctors will be testifying on the damage done by DU before the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commissionin Washington, D.C., in December.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration said on Thursday that it will be spending $1.6 million to try to identify atrocities committed in Iraq . . . by ISIS.

How many TRILLIONS did the Pentagon "lose"? - Questions For Corbett


In this edition of "Questions For Corbett" James fields your queries on the importance of drills, the Pentagon's missing trillions, Prescott Bush and the Union Banking Corporation, government-run human experiments and much more.

Less than 1% of Patriot Act’s “Sneak and Peek” Delayed Notice Warrants are Used against Terrorism

 
(photo: Getty Images)

Federal law enforcement has increasingly used a key provision of the Patriot Act (pdf) to pry into people’s lives without having to tell them. This practice has been justified under the guise of counterterrorism, but government statistics show that less than 1% of all “sneak and peek” actions involve suspected terrorists.

Under section 213 of the Patriot Act, law enforcement agencies can carry out sneak-and-peek warrants, which allow agents to “secretly enter, either physically or virtually; conduct a search, observe, take measurements, conduct examinations, smell, take pictures, copy documents, download or transmit computer files, and the like; and depart without taking any tangible evidence or leaving notice of their presence.” Suspects can be informed of the search later.

The provision was added to the Patriot Act because, the FBI claimed, it was important not to tip off terrorism suspects during cases.

But the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) found after reviewing reports released by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts that only 51 sneak-and-peek requests during 2013 were for terrorism out of 11,129 total requests that year. The biggest reason for the warrants was to investigate drug crimes (9,401 requests), EFF reported.

 “The numbers vindicate privacy advocates who urged Congress to shelve Section 213 during the Patriot Act debates,” Mark Jaycox at EFF wrote. “Proponents of Section 213 claimed sneak and peek warrants were needed to protect against terrorism. But just like we’ve seen elsewhere, these claims are false.”

Keiser Report (E672): Nudging, Bludgeoning & Pigeoning


In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert in a double-header discuss nudging citizen-consumers like pigeons and mental patients into behaving as the technocratic elite wish them to behave - more consumption, more selfies, more fatal masturbation. This behavioural outcome is achieved through rewarding desired behaviour with plastic trinkets and poker chips which make the subjects being controlled feel empowered by their decisions to behave as their controllers had wanted them to. They look at examples of successful nudging in the UK where the electorate is bought off with games of chutes and property ladders for correct behaviour. If nudging does not work, however, there is always bludgeoning as is done in the US where the Inland Revenue Service has been seizing the bank deposits of non-complying citizen-pigeons who have not incurred massive debts.

Australia Closes Borders While Obama Invites Ebola in


While the Obama administration continues to argue against travel restrictions on flights from Ebola ravaged areas, Australia has become the latest nation to shut it’s borders and freeze all visas from West African countries.



There should be strict quarantine measures and closed borders to stop the spread of this deadly disease. Many people simply believe the corrupted CDC when they stated the virus is not airborne. It is transmittable through the air in droplets. The actions of the Obama Administration constitute a level of criminal negligence - effectively allowing a known deadly airborne disease into the country.

How an Establishment Paedophile Ring Leads to the Monarchy, MI5 & Rothschilds


It has long been alleged that the systematic abuse of children took place in the Kincora home at the hands of a paedophile ring thought to be linked to MI5. It has also been claimed that MI5 blocked police investigations into the abuse, who reportedly used the information of child abuse to blackmail, manipulate and coerce members of the establishment who were committing the abuse.



This is part of the system of blackmail that runs through the ruling establishment.

October Frightfest: The Creeping Horror of Jeb vs. Hillary 2016!


Look what's coming to a 2016 presidential wannabe nightmare near you! It's a bread and circuses pretense of democracy starring evil American dynasty number one and evil American dynasty number two. Same stank, different election!

Not only did we call this can of nightmare juice a long time ago, but how the media can even act shocked right now at announcing this is just laughable. And to anyone who says giving sellout Rand Paul or Bush family Igor Ted Cruz the VP slot on the ticket will change things, take a look at Joe Biden. Does anyone even know what he's done the last eight years? Clue: whoever they tack on, it'll just be to suck in voters for yet another Bush. Please stop lying to yourself. It makes us sad.

Can anyone even tell the difference between these two globalists? This next vote won't even be between the lesser of two evils...it'll just be for straight evil, sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations.



And the NY Times is not allowing comments on their coverage of this story - for those that think the mainstream media is not controlled.

Debunking the Debunkers - the Blog !


http://911debunkers.blogspot.com/

This brilliant site destroys the fake science and claims made by the 911 debunking fraternity. I highly recommend that everyone visit this blog in order to get some basic scientific principles set in mind. It is level-headed analysis at its best.

Also, their selection of links to other 911 truth webpages and resources is invaluable.

For activists wishing to present a deconstruction of the key debunker falsehoods, thereby strengthening the case against the official web of lies, I suggest drawing upon the information found at Debunking the Debunkers. Encourage others to learn the truth and fight in the information war.

With continuous and unrelenting actions we will inevitably expose the 911 FALSE FLAG attack for what it was. We can then bring about a measure of justice for all the victims of 911 and END the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Peace.

Keiser Report (E671): Sinking British Ship


In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the increasingly bankrupt British government as a sinking ship on George Osborne’s river of denial. They discuss the remedy for the ‘too many poor people’ for democracy problem being global trade deals like TTIP and TPP whereby elected leaders can claim ‘their hands are tied’ by contractual obligations. In the second half, Max interviews Helena Norberg-Hodge of LocalFutures.org about the Economics of Happiness in a time of rising inequality.

CDC Finally Admits that Ebola Can Float through the Air … 3 Feet


We’ve noted for some time that Ebola can be spread by aerosols to frontline healthcare workers.

The CDC is finally admitting this fact.

The CDC put out a new poster stating:
Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another.
A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose.
***
Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucet handles, and toys, since the Ebola virus may live on surfaces for up to several hours.
Meryl Nass, M.D. – a board-certified internist and a biological warfare epidemiologist and expert in anthrax - comments:
CDC says it doesn’t travel farther than 3 feet. Well, at least CDC is starting to move the narrative. Maybe tomorrow it will be 5 feet. Then 10. Maybe next month they will tell us why all the victims’ possessions are being incinerated and apartments fumigated.
Just remember: historically, Ebola spread fast in healthcare facilities.
And see this.
http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/10/cdc-finally-gets-right-ebola-spreads-aerosols-3-feet.html

Within a few weeks the turth about this current ebola virus outbreak will be apparent when more infected individuals appear in western cities that previously had only one newly arrived victim. The only way to effectively stop further transmission of the disease, short of a vaccine, is though strict quarantine measures and closed borders.

Include the Green Party in the TV Leaders' Debates ahead of the 2015 General Election.


It has been announced that the leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage has been invited to join the leaders debates on national TV before next year's general election. However Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party, has been excluded from these debates.

UKIP has just gained its first MP; the Greens have had an MP (Caroline Lucas) for 4 years.
The Green Party beat the Liberal Democrats in the 2014 European Elections and is polling neck-and-neck with them in General Election opinion polls. In May 2014 more than 1.2 million people voted Green - more than 150,000 more than voted Liberal Democrat.

Natalie Bennett has just as much a right to be on that panel as the men. Apparently it’s too “messy” to have too many candidates in a TV debate.

By excluding a party with a female leader, we are sending a clear message to the public — politics is still an old boys club.

Calling Out Mainstream Media News on the MH17 Incident - A Letter to the Walkley Foundation


The Herald Sun newpaper is nominated for two Walkley (journalism) Awards over their MH17 coverage. I had to send the Walkley people a letter. They are making a big mistake:

LETTER:

I was shocked to read in the Herald Sun that their paper had been nominated for two Walkley Awards for their coverage of the MH17 disaster.

The Herald Sun had some of the worst coverage of that incident I encountered in the mainstream press.

The problem was the high number of articles that simply repeated the western rhetoric concerning the disaster without offering a critical assessment of the incident. Good reporting would not have run so strongly with the rhetoric - especially if the journalists had been doing their jobs in covering the fighting in Ukraine and realised the level of propaganda associated with that conflict.

I particularly remember seeing headlines, and subheadings, that more or less claimed President Vladimir Putin had personally shot down the airliner.

Another notorious part of the coverage included claims that drunk rebels in the area were looting items from the wreckage - where a photo implied/stated that one of them was stealing a child's toy.

This Reuter's photo shows what was portrayed (I don't have a copy of the paper):

http://www.asiaone.com/sites/default/files/original_images/Jul2014/20140719-reuters-mh17looting.jpg

However, this video of the exact same incident clearly shows there is no looting occurring in this instance, where the rebel, who is surrounded by press, puts the toy solemnly back on the ground:

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=504_1406035756

When it came to actual proof showing who shot down MH17 we have two main points of circumstantial evidence.

The first is a disputed audio recording, 'leaked' from Ukrainian Government sources, of rebels admitting they accidentally shot down the aircraft - which appears to be audio of different events spliced together:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URnpjl4eIus

At the very least the audio recording claim has been challenged and needs further investigation.

The second point of circumstantial evidence, 'leaked' again from the Ukraine Government (if I recall correctly), is video of a BUK missile launcher, missing a missile, being carried on the back of a truck that the Russians show was in Government controlled territory (see after the 17th minute on this clip) and therefore not the ‘murder weapon’:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6U85E6x0_U

Other than those two points of evidence all we have is rhetoric about what happened from NATO and the US, who had lied previously about events in Ukraine - for example, claiming 40,000 Russian troops were on the border, whereas none were present, during the time of the Crimean vote of independence.

(This is video from an NBC news crew on the Russia-Crimea border at the time when NATO claimed there were troops and tanks occupying the area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tnNJkj7UIM)

In opposition to the 'Putin downed the airliner' rhetoric we have the Russian military claiming that there were active Ukraine Government BUK missile systems in the area and there were fighter aircraft shadowing the airliner (see the full clip, which I put up earlier http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6U85E6x0_U), the last point being corroborated by BBC Russia eyewitnesses:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVdwUdlswOY

Other western claims that Russian equipment had crossed the border to shoot down the airliner are completely unfounded. Russian equipment is used by both sides in the conflict and there is no evidence to suggest any additional elements entered the war in such a manner.

I strongly recommend you go over your assessment of the Herald Sun coverage of the MH17 shoot down and juxtapose the unchallenged rhetoric that the paper pushed on the public versus established facts - including considering what the motive would be if this was done deliberately by Russia.

The only two reasonable choices, in terms of guessing what occurred, is that either the aircraft (which was directed off course) was shot down accidentally by the rebels, or that it was deliberately shot down by the Ukrainian Government in order to vilify the rebels.

The reporting on the incident by the Herald Sun did not adequately convey those two possibilities and ran with the meme that the incident was a deliberate act of murder by the Russian Government.

The event could be cleared up if the US released their satellite images of the area which they have yet to do.

Other general points to consider about the context, where the mainstream media has failed miserably, is the fact there was a coup in Kiev, involving neonazis, that caused the east and southern regions of Ukraine to break away. The west supported the coup and has propagandised what happened, and subsequent events, in conjunction with the Ukraine Government. The coup is the root cause of the fighting, not any intervention from Moscow.

Much more critical thought needs to go into mainstream news coverage of the conflict that includes the MH17 shoot down.

Thanks for your time.
