US, UK Diabolic Lie: Syria Used Chemical Arms

The diabolic duo is at it again. This time the criminal magic show is to sell the lie to the world that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons of mass destruction. Weeks of political choreography have set up the issue of chemical weapons as a convenient “red line”.

Now, hey presto, the threshold has been reached for the Americans and the British to justify ramping up their criminal interference in Syria from covert proxy terrorism to overt state terrorism.

The role that Britain’s David Cameron is playing today - of giving the Obama administration a cloak of credibility - is the exact same role that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair played 10 years ago for then US President George W Bush.
There are a few squeamish voices in the Western media cautioning about the “mistakes” of Iraq. This is pathetically not good enough. What these media should be calling for, if they had any integrity, is the prosecution of Bush and Blair, as well as Obama and Cameron. But no, what we read are “cautions” over the “mistakes” of “rushing into” Iraq.

In other words, the Western media are buying and selling the same old American-British ploy of creating a pretext for criminal aggression towards a sovereign country - this time, Syria.

Bush's Legacy of Atrocities Is Nowhere to Be Seen at His New Library -- and the Local Paper Won't Even Run One Ad That Tells the Truth

George W. Bush presided over an international network of torture chambers and, with the help of a compliant Congress and press, launched a war of aggression that killed hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. However, instead of the bloody details of his time in office being recounted at a war crimes tribunal, the former president has been able to bank on his imperial privilege – and a network of rich corporate donors that he made richer while in office – to tell his version of history at a library in Texas being opened in his name.

Kill a few, they call you a murderer. Kill tens of thousands, they give you $500 million for a granite vanity project and a glossy 30-page supplement in the local paper.

Before getting into that, some facts. According to the US government, more than 100,000 people died following the 2003 invasion of Iraq; of that number, 4,486 were members of the US military. Other estimates place the figure at closer to one million deaths as a result of Bush's defining act in office: an aggressive war waged against a non-threat and which even some of his own advisers admit was illegal. So far, the wars started by Bush and continued by his heir, Barack Obama, have cost upwards of $3.1 trillion. That's money that could have been spent saving lives and building things, not ending and destroying them.

But that's not going to be the narrative at the George W. Bush Presidential Library, opening this week in Dallas, Texas. No, that's going to be: 9/11, 9/11, 9/11 (see also: 9/11).

Think about this situation for a second.

Bush and friends have committed a series of high crimes, confessing to some of them such as torture, and yet the corporate media and the Obama DoJ do and say nothing. This should be seen as a clue that the system is not simply dysfunctional but corrupt. The country is being run by a corporate-military crime syndicate with different puppets switching into the role of President.

The more people that can be woken up to this truth the sooner things can be turned around.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.

You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that's trillion, with a "t") worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it "dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets."

That was bad enough, but now Libor may have a twin brother. Word has leaked out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world's largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world's largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.

Interest-rate swaps are a tool used by big cities, major corporations and sovereign governments to manage their debt, and the scale of their use is almost unimaginably massive. It's about a $379 trillion market, meaning that any manipulation would affect a pile of assets about 100 times the size of the United States federal budget.

It should surprise no one that among the players implicated in this scheme to fix the prices of interest-rate swaps are the same megabanks – including Barclays, UBS, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and the Royal Bank of Scotland – that serve on the Libor panel that sets global interest rates. In fact, in recent years many of these banks have already paid multimillion-dollar settlements for anti-competitive manipulation of one form or another (in addition to Libor, some were caught up in an anti-competitive scheme, detailed in Rolling Stone last year, to rig municipal-debt service auctions). Though the jumble of financial acronyms sounds like gibberish to the layperson, the fact that there may now be price-fixing scandals involving both Libor and ISDAfix suggests a single, giant mushrooming conspiracy of collusion and price-fixing hovering under the ostensibly competitive veneer of Wall Street culture.

Fukushima's Catastrophic Aftermath Continues

In her book titled No Immediate Danger: Prognosis for a Radioactive Earth, nuclear power/environmental health expert Rosalie Bertell (1929 - 2012) said:
Should the public discover the true health cost(s) of nuclear pollution, a cry would rise from all parts of the world and people would refuse to cooperate passively with their own death.
In her article titled "Radioactivity: No Immediate Danger," she coined a new word. "Omnicide" describes the ultimate human rejection of life. It's "difficult to comprehend," but it's happening, she said.

She called industrial radioactive pollution "cumulatively greater than Chernobyl. We are now in a no-win situation with radioactive materials, where (it's) acceptable to have cancer deaths, deformed children and miscarriages."
Separately, she said:
There is no such thing as a radiation exposure that will not do damage. There is a hundred per cent possibility that there will be damage to cells. The next question is: which damage do you care about?
All toxic hazards are serious, she explained. Nuclear radiation is worst of all. It threatens all human life. "Our present path is headed toward species death - whether fast with nuclear war or technological disaster, or slow, by poison."

Global suicide is certain. Continued nuclear proliferation and Fukushima accelerated it.

March 11 marked its second anniversary. It's perhaps the worst ever environmental disaster. Reliable experts call large parts of Japan unsafe. They're too hazardous to live in.

According to Professor Hiroaki Koide, Tokyo's as contaminated as Fukushima. Thousands of city residents protested. They oppose nuclear power. They want safe energy sources replacing it.

Radiation contamination is widespread. East Asia, North America, Europe and other areas are affected.

Hazardous air, water and land readings across many areas globally are many multiples too high. Future epidemic cancer levels are certain. It occurs when body cells divide and spread uncontrollably. If untreated, it metastasizes and kills.

The Fukushima disaster is still with us. There is no containment to stop radioactive material from escaping into the environment. Corrective action must be taken immediately.

An international effort needs to be made to entomb the ruins. If that requires a huge multi-billion dollar engineering project then so be it.

We can no longer afford to live in a world where corporate/government lies and cover-ups are normal. This system needs a shake up. The truth about the corruption needs to come out.

Those people involved in the 'cover-up business' need to realise that we are ALL in very big trouble. 'The truth' is desperately needed so we can get out of our present fix. With some imagination the world can be made a better place for everyone.

Building a Pretext to Wage War on Syria: As NATO Terror Front Collapses, US Drums Up Familiar WMD Lies

The last two weeks have seen a series of victories for the Syrian Army across Syria. It appears that 2 full companies of so-called “Free Syrian Army” fighters have been annihilated near Damascus, while government forces have restored order in parts of Homs and along the previously porous Lebanese-Syrian border.

Time has run out for the West, and it appears that they are desperately seeking any excuse to rescue their failing proxy war. When urgent, but otherwise unjustified military intervention is needed, a “humanitarian” pretext is usually invented – as it was in Libya.

Failing that, as the West has already clearly done in Syria, an even more tenuous narrative has been resurrected from its well-earned grave. CNN has reported in their article, “Hagel: Evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria,” that:

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the United States has evidence that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.

This comes a couple of days after an Israeli intelligence official said Damascus was using weapons banned under international law against its own people in the country’s civil war. Syria has said rebels have used chemical weapons.

The most ridiculous part of this story is that the Israelis are quoted as being a source of 'reliable intelligence' on the attack - this is the same country that wants to attack Iran for having a nuclear power station.

Lies were told about Saddam's WMDs in order to change the regime in Iraq. The same tactics, this time seemingly involving false flag chemical attacks, are being used in Syria. I would not be surprised if fabricated evidence was used to help their story.

Note: There would be no war in Syria if not for foreign intervention.

Lamestream Media: TV Titans Lose US Viewers Over Slanted Stories

The major TV news networks in the US are losing viewers tired of opinionated coverage and carefully selected stories, according to a recent study by an American nonpartisan thinktank. RT's Gayane Chichakyan looks into the phenomenon.

The Problem With Fairy Floss News - A Letter to Mainstream TV News Show.

The following letter was sent to an Australian TV light-news show. It was written in haste at a late hour. Hopefully they got my point.  

Hello The Project,

I have a massive problem with the corporate media’s lies and misrepresentations of ‘World News’ issues. I also have a problem with state run media (The ABC) because it follows similar conventions. I hope your show can address these concerns. I doubt it, but it’s always worth an email.

The problem we face is when it comes to the most serious matters -of War Crimes and Western Covert operations- there is a deathly silence in the mainstream press. The public really needs to know what is going on and be angry about it.

At this point you might be wondering what else is there outside the ‘reputable’ news services? The phrase ‘Western covert operations’ must sound like crazy talk.

In fact there is a long history of Western Governments being involved in terrorist attacks (covert operations).

Look at the IRA in London during the 80s and 90s. Annie Machon and David Shayler, MI5 agents, resigned when they discovered their agency let bombings occur among other crimes.

In Europe during the Cold War there was ‘Operation Gladio’ that involved Western government terror attacks (false flags) blamed on left wing radicals. Many people were murdered over many DECADES.

And during the 90s US covert operations in conjunction with Turkey funnelled Muslim fighters into the former Yugoslavia and Chechnya. Such operations also involved organised crime gangs.

There is also whistleblower information, from Sibel Edmonds, who had been hired by the FBI as a translator, showing the US kept working with the known Cold War CIA/Saudi asset Osama Bin Laden all through the 90s and early 2000s.

There is also information to show that the Al Qaeda operative Anwar Al Awlaki, reportedly killed with his son in Yemen via drone strike a few years ago, was an intelligence asset, having been released from custody in 2002 by the FBI.

In the 2000s we see that most domestic terror plots in the US were aided and often planned by FBI undercover informers who stood to make large sums of money from these entrapment operations. Almost none of the 2000s terror plots would have occurred, or even been planned, without the help of the FBI. The CIA has also recently admitted that they had prior knowledge of the underwear bomber plot.

In regards to the attacks of 911 we know from Congressional investigations (undertaken before the 911 Commission) that the FBI and US Army intelligence operation ABLE DANGER, along with the NSA, had identified many of the hijackers but that these operations were stopped by higher ups before they could act. FBI field agents, like Coleen Rowley, believed that their investigations were deliberately sunk. However, without doubt, Bush officials sabotaged the Congressional investigations into the Saudi intelligence links to one of the hijacker cells (this is on record) by paying one of the FBI informers so that he would not cooperate.

We also have very good evidence, historically, to suggest that US intelligence proxies (intelligence agencies often use proxies) were involved in the drug trade. Various journalists like Gary Webb and Mike Ruppert have reported on operations out of Central and Southern America during the 80s. In very recent years ‘ex’ CIA registered aircraft, one of which had been used on rendition flights, crashed carry many tons of cocaine. Today there are questions being raised about the huge increase in heroin trading out of Afghanistan with both President Karzai and his brother, who is at the centre of the allegations, being involved with the CIA.

Also, if we consider drugs and arms we must also reflect on the 1980s Iran-Contra Scandal. This is something that you should be familiar with so I won’t cover any details. It’s a real case of corruption, at the highest levels, brought to light. You should note that a number of individuals involved in this operation and the subsequent ‘investigation’ later became members of the George W Bush Administration and appeared on the 911 Commission respectively.

Expanding to the present wars in Libya and Syria we see ‘covert’ funding, training and arms supplies. The rebellions in these two countries were not popular uprisings like what we saw in Tunisia or Egypt. At this moment the fighting still rages in Syria thanks to Turkish/US/Saudi/Qatari intervention. Many Syrians were not happy with Assad but now they face the spectre of an extremist takeover, which is worse.

These wars in Syria and Libya are down to geopolitics which is the whole point. You don’t see ‘humanitarian assistance’ for people in Bahrain or Kuwait or Yemen against their non-democratic regimes. Helping ordinary people has nothing to do with it. It is for similar reasons we find intelligence agencies working with drug dealers and terrorist groups – geopolitical advantage. Please don’t be naïve and expect that the welfare of people features highly in such games.

If you doubt any of these points please research various mainstream and foreign press accounts of these matters and refer to the court cases and official documents that are presently forgot in the minds of so many reporters today. We occasionally see documentaries on this sort of thing, but almost no one remembers the points being raised. We certainly are never reminded of them in the 24 hour news cycle.

So, after covering (very briefly) what I mean by ‘covert operations’ and the geopolitical agenda, you should ask yourselves where is the media when it comes to addressing the OBVIOUS War Crimes of the Bush Administration? They admitted to authorising torture! There is also a strong case for illegal war. Where is Obama in all this? His Attorney General has a duty to commence prosecutions but he does nothing. We have clear evidence of banking fraud, rigging of LIBOR Rates, laundering drug money (HSBC) and a myriad of other financial crimes as pointed out by ex-prosecutor Professor Bill Black and NOTHING is done.

Where is the mainstream media?

Without a measure of truth and justice the systems we rely upon will be rigged for the elites and eventually ordinary people will find themselves victims of scams – financial and war related – that lead to their impoverishment, loss of liberty and eventually death in many instances.

Please start to inform your viewers more fully. At present things look like they will be ending quite badly.

Thanks for your time

While Wronged Homeowners Got $300 Apiece in Foreclosure Settlement, Consultants Who Helped Protect Banks Got $2 Billion

The upshot of this story is that in advance of that notorious settlement, the government ordered banks to hire "independent" consultants to examine their loan files to see just exactly how corrupt they were.

Now it comes out that not only were these consultants not so independent, not only did they very likely skew the numbers seriously in favor of the banks, and not only were these few consultants paid over $2 billion (over 20 percent of the entire settlement amount) while the average homeowner only received $300 in the deal – in addition to all of that, it appears that federal regulators will not turn over the evidence of impropriety they discovered during these reviews to homeowners who may want to sue the banks.

In other words, the government not only ordered the banks to hire consultants who may have gamed the foreclosure settlement in favor of the banks, but the regulators themselves are hiding the information from the public in order to shield the banks from further lawsuits.

Robo-Stop: Mankind Raging Against 'Rise of Machines'

Within the next 20-30 years, a fully autonomous weapon deployed on the battlefield could confuse a young girl with an ice cream, for a soldier with a gun. That's what campaigners in Britain claim, declaring war on so-called killer-robots. Activists say the lethally armed machines should be banned before they are used in warfare.

I doubt our bought leaders in the Government, plus those in the military and corporations, will be discouraged or stopped from developing fully autonomous systems until something drastically bad happens. The act of going to war should not take humans so far out of the loop. It'll become push button warfare, out of sight, out of mind ...

Drums of War: US claims Chem Weapons Used in Syria, Red Line Crossed?

US officials claim they have intelligence pointing to the small-scale use of chemical weapons by the regime in Syria. The data is said to be sketchy and difficult to verify. Washington has warned a chemical attack in Syria could spark a US intervention and some lawmakers now say that red line has been crossed. But as RT's Marina Portnaya reports, the drumming up of war rhetoric is reminiscent of a previous invasion.

WMD lies like Iraq? The last time there was a claim of chemical weapons use in Syria it was discovered that the rebels had done so. Assad knows that if chemical weapons are used the US will attack. His forces would not use them.

Boston Bombers On Terrorist Watch Lists … Russia Contacted U.S. MULTIPLE TIMES Regarding Bombers

Russian authorities alerted the US government not once but “multiple’’ times over their concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev — including a second time nearly a year after he was first interviewed by FBI agents in Boston — raising new questions about whether the FBI should have focused more attention on the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, according to US senators briefed on the probe Tuesday.

In a closed briefing on Tuesday, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee learned that Russia alerted the United States about Tsarnaev in “multiple contacts’’ — including “at least once since October 2011,’’ said Richard Burr, a Republican of North Carolina, speaking with reporters afterward.

Senators said the briefing also revealed failures among federal agencies to share vital information about Tsarnaev, indicating, they said, that the US government still has not established a strong system to “connect the dots’’ about would-be terrorists residing in America more than a decade after 9/11.

With so many warnings it's more than likely that Tamerlan was an intelligence asset of one of these agencies, perhaps supported to help destabilise Russia.  Was he involved in the reported bomb drill that apparently went live or did he place the actual explosives? Analysis of the destroyed backpacks indicates neither of the alleged bombers planted the bombs since their own backpacks were grey and white while the explosive packs were black.

Alleged Boston Bomber Attended CIA-Sponsored Workshop

Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended a workshop sponsored by the CIA-linked Jamestown Foundation, Izvestia reports today. The Russian newspaper cites documents produced by the Counterintelligence Department Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia confirming that the NGO “Fund of Caucasus” held workshops in the summer of 2012 and Tsarnaev attended.

The Caucasus Fund was established in November, 2008, following the Geoergian- Ossetian conflict. The main purpose of the organization, according to Izvestia, is to “to recruit young people and intellectuals of the North Caucasus to enhance instability and extremism in the southern regions of Russia.”

The Jamestown Foundation is a known CIA front. It “is only an element in a huge machine, which is controlled by Freedom House and linked to the CIA,” writes the Voltaire Network. “In practice, it has become a specialized news agency in subjects such as the communist and post-communist states and terrorism.” CIA director William Casey and Russian dissident Arkady Shevchenko were instrumental in creating the organization.

'Confusion and Inconsistencies': How US Plans to Distract Public from Real Truth About Boston

The initial questions about the Boston bombing are behind us, but former FBI employee Sibel Edmonds believes the pursuit of truth will eventually lead to a far more secret agenda by the US, which she reveals to RT.

The United States is having to quickly wake up to the possibility that Chechens are not the 'freedom fighters' Western media has been categorizing them as, especially when it came to the Republic's relationship to Russia. But even the newly formed perceptions may not be enough when it comes to investigating the motives and planning behind the Boston bombing, according to Edmonds, who is also a founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition.

With the dust somewhat settled after the capture of the younger suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Edmonds believes there will only be more unanswered questions in an investigation already plagued by obvious inconsistencies and falsities, which she recounts at length.

It's possible that the Russian Government will not come out about US terrorist operations in Chechnya because elements the FSB may have been involved in false flag operations of their own - terror bombings blamed on Chechens, inside Russia, that were designed to create support for the war.

Please note that whatever the FBI is saying about this case, especially what the alleged surviving bomber has said, CANNOT be trusted. We are dealing with an agency that involves itself with setting up terrorists and framing individuals for crimes they did not commit.

Summary of 'White Backpack Defense' of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Top investigator says both bomb containers were black nylon and the photo of blasted pieces of of the backpack that contained the second bomb is black -- so why is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev even suspected since his bag was white as seen in several pictures.

We were given only one photo of "Suspect 1" and "Suspect 2", a photo in which Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's backpack is not clearly seen and identifyable as white.

We were told to disregard other photos taken my spectators at the marathon -- can there be any motive for this other than to keep us from seeing that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's bag was white.

No person identified by name in the investigation is saying that they saw the video themselves. We merely hear second hand, from people, like the governor of Massachusetts who tells us that he was at a briefing where the video was described. This video taken from a surveillence camera across the street from the second bombing has not been made public and all we hear are second hand accounts -- not admissible in court -- yet it forms the entire basis for the suspicion placed on Suspect 2 (Dzhokhar). We do not know who gave the briefing describing Dzhokhar putting down his backpack before the second explosion -- and of course no one has said what color the backpack was that Dzhokhar dropped.

Did Dzhokhar shoot the MIT campus policeman in the head or was he trying to surrender to him because he trusted him, had gotten in contact with him, but the officer was executed by the real black-op perpetrators before the Dzhokhar could effect his plan?

If the FBI has video of the crime scene then they must release it immediately. Otherwise a rational individual may assume the Feds are unnecessarily holding onto evidence that may contradict the official narrative. With the past record of FBI involvement in terror attacks the public needs to be shown the evidence that back up this agency's claims.

And in the absence of other evidence, any Court of Law would require such video material to be aired in order to link the suspects to the crime.

Boston Bombings: 'US Backed Chechen 'Freedom Fighters', Faces Fallout of 'Enemy's Enemy' Policy'

Despite being of Chechen descent, the alleged bombers spent most of their lives in the US after their parents applied for asylum. Both were rare visitors to Russia, but this didn't stop Moscow from raising the alarm over possible terrorist intentions of the older brother. RT's Gayane Chichakyan reports on why the concerns failed to prevent the Boston tragedy.

Also, James Petras, Professor of Sociology at Binghamton University, believes the US is walking on very thin ice, when it backs questionable armed factions elsewhere in the world.

It's very possible that along with supporting the Chechens overseas US intelligence has used the two individuals in Boston for a flase flag operation rather than these people being renegades. The FBI has been involved with almost every domestic terrorist act in the last ten years.

Pit of Hopelessness: Guantanamo Grows Tense, Inmates Suicidal

More than a half of the detainees in Guantanamo Bay are now on hunger strike, according to the U.S. military. So far, 5 have been hospitalized at the prison camp, and 16 are being force-fed. And as RT's Gayane Chichyakyan explains, the fate of the hunger strikers has broad international implications...

This is a great summary of the situation in Guantanamo. Those individuals who have command responsibility over the continued detention of these prisoners should go on trial for violating International Law. Anyone with command responsibility that has not actively engaged in efforts to release the prisoners must face justice.

Boston Bombings: Where the Dots Won't Connect

The 19-year old Dzhokhar hasen't spoken to investigators yet because he can't. He is said to be 'intubated and sedated' with a throat wound. Boston Mayor Tom Menino voiced concerns Sunday that authorities may never be able to question him at all.

One thing remains unclear though – how the young man could walk out of the boat he was hiding in already with a throat wound that he is now almost dying from.


Mike Rivero asks the question, if the suspect was seriously wounded in the throat, where are the blood stains?

I am beginning to distrust all the statements made by the authorities regarding this case. If they said the sky was blue I would want to check to make sure. Every claim they make needs some independent form of corroboration.

When False Flags Don't Fly

Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the public—still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them—can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of "security." -- Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power.

Boston Bombing: Everyone Should Get a Trial/Accused Backpacks Do Not Match Debris?

EVERYONE should have a trial. If you don't have a trial then there is something to hide. Nazis had a trial. Other domestic terrorist had trials. Even the 20th 9/11 hijacker had a trial. The DC snipers had a trial. Timothy McVeigh had a trial. Even Saddam was taken to kangaroo court. So why do these guys in Gitmo involved in 9/11 and (possibly) the living Boston bomber not get a trial? Because the government can't allow its privateers and patsies a public place to spill the beans.

A real simple question I have is why doesn't the debris on the back pack used in the bombing match either of the back packs of the accused? It was black with a white square on the top. The backpack of the bombers is grey and black with the other white with black.

The debris bag at least one of them looks like one from the National Guard Civil Support Team and no it was not Craft International.

I had thought the military guys with backpacks were from Craft International. I'll have to find some confirmation on this point. However, if you go to the link and look at the pictures you can see that the suspects' packs do not match with the bomb debris material. Go and compare it.

Also, if the backpack debris is the same as the 'National Guard CST' packs then perhaps they were likewise set up in the bomb drill that went live. I do not think CST members would be staging false flags.

What we really need is film or pictures of the area revealing the placement of the bombs.

The Foreclosure Settlement Scandal: It’s All About Paying Former Regulators Billions

The $3.6 billion in checks from a government approved settlement fund for victims of foreclosure abuse by the country’s biggest banks and mortgage servicers began arriving in mailboxes this week, with additional mailings to extend into July. But what should also be tucked into the envelope is a truth in advertising disclaimer stating that the government is now disavowing the use of the phrase “Independent Foreclosure Review” as a hyperbolic and untruthful characterization. The process was anything but “independent” and out of more than 4 million foreclosure files potentially stuffed with evidence of illegal activity on the part of banks, only 100,000 files were actually reviewed, not even enough to constitute a reliable statistical sampling.

In a Senate hearing last Thursday, Senator Elizabeth Warren revealed for the first time that it was the actual banks that engaged in the illegal foreclosure activities, not the so-called Independent Foreclosure Review consultants, that were allowed by the government to tally up and classify their own wrongdoing under various degrees of harm; deciding themselves how many people would receive anywhere from $300 to $125,000 in restitution.

This is the problem with the USA. The country has been hijacked by criminal special interest groups.

Surreal: US Troops Stage in Jordan to Defend and Protect Al Qaeda in Syria

US Military To Stage on Border to Protect Al Qaeda

The Pentagon now reports that some 200 US troops are on their way to augment an already established US military presence along the Jordanian-Syrian border. CNN reported in their article, “U.S. military to step up presence in Jordan in light of Syria civil war,” that:

The troops, which will number up to 200, are from the headquarters of the 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss, Texas, two Defense Department officials told CNN.

The deployment “creates an additional capability” beyond what has been there, one official said, and will give the United States the ability to “potentially form a joint task force for military operations, if ordered.”

Boston Bombing: 'They Were Set Up, FBI Followed Them for Years' - Tsarnaevs' Mother to RT

Grief-stricken at the latest developments in the case, Zubeidat expressed her dismay at the allegations, recounting Dzhokhar’s life in the US and talking of his status among his peers and friends: he was an honors student, loved by many of his friends and teachers. And his older brother Tamerlan was a star athlete and student, whose ambition was to one day appear on the US Olympic wrestling team.

But her biggest suspicion surrounding the case was the constant FBI surveillance she said her family was subjected to over the years. She is surprised that having been so stringent with the entire family, the FBI had no idea the sons were supposedly planning a terrorist act.

Even if they did comit terrorist acts there is definitely the possibility that FBI knew about it beforehand and may have helped them. There is a long history of the FBI creating and supporting domestic terrorist activities. If they used grenades, reportedly in the street fighting, where did they source them from?

If these suspects actually planted the bombs it will be interesting to see if they have any connections to the FBI or US intelligence services. Almost all recent terror plots on US soil have involved the FBI in the actual planning of the terrorism:

However, several of the examples given by Capriles as evidence of fraud are clearly false, as can be seen by consulting the results on the National Electoral Council’s (CNE) website.

Boston Bombing Suspects Caught on Camera - Bomb Drill, Military Personel [UPDATED]

Photos collated on the 4chan website show numerous images of suspicious individuals wearing large backpacks present at the scene of the Boston Marathon bombings. Three of the men appear to be Arab or Middle Eastern in appearance, whereas another two of the individuals are white.

The images show the men looking away from the marathon runners, talking on cellphones and running from the scene immediately after the blast. Remains of one of the backpacks are also photographed yards from where one of the bombs exploded. The FBI states that at least one of the pressure cooker devices used in the bombing was housed in a backpack.

Some of these men may have merely been victims, but the image of the two men standing together wearing the same clothes and carrying heavy backpacks and wearing credentials suggests they may have been involved in a drill or in the actual attack. One of individuals, a white man whose backpack was found at the scene of the bombing, looks badly dressed and disheveled.

Just look at the photos if you don't like Alex Jones and consider the stories reported about a Bomb Drill going on at the same time as the attack. 

There needs to be some explaining from the authorities to account for what we can see in these pictures. We cannot rule out a false flag operation - perhaps another botched one - or simply a botched drill (there were reports of a bomb drill).
We need to know who all these military people are, where they are from and what they are doing. It may be that the bombings occurred co-incidentally with these people being on scene.


The military-type people are private contractors. Their company is called The Craft. See this story:

Photos: Private military operatives hired to ‘work’ the Boston marathon

We all know, however, that The Craft operatives don’t work for free. They aren’t a band of volunteers. And that means somebody paid them to be at the event.

Who paid The Craft to be there? And what was their mission?

Why is their existence at the Boston marathon being memory-holed? Why are they not “persons of interest” in the investigation?

Why do they carry radiation detectors? What’s in their backpacks? (A ham sandwich?)

The fact that the media refuses to even acknowledge the existence of these private military operatives is quite telling all by itself.

Bolivia’s President Says US Planning Coup in Venezuela

In a press conference on Tuesday, the Bolivian president said that the US is getting ready for a coup d’état in Venezuela.

He also rejected the White House’s moral authority to question electoral results worldwide, after Washington demanded Caracas to hold a full vote recount.

“I am certain that behind those remarks, the United States is preparing a coup d’état in Venezuela,” said Morales.

“I would like to express that this is a flagrant US interference in Venezuela’s democracy, as neither that spokesperson nor the US government has moral authority to question electoral results in any Latin American country or around the world.”

Morales also confirmed that he would attend Nicolas Maduro’s inauguration ceremony next Friday as a sign of support to the president-elect.

Since the electoral authority declared Maduro the winner, the opposition has staged several violent protests, leaving at least seven people dead and over 60 others injured.The US is not recognising the results of the election, so it looks like they are trying for regime change.

Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket Following Radiological Incidents

The White House has given final approval for dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs. The final version, slated for Federal Register publication as soon as today, is a win for the nuclear industry which seeks what its proponents call a “new normal” for radiation exposure among the U.S population, according Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

Issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, the radiation guides (called Protective Action Guides or PAGs) allow cleanup many times more lax than anything EPA has ever before accepted. These guides govern evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, food restrictions and other actions following a wide range of “radiological emergencies.” The Obama administration blocked a version of these PAGs from going into effect during its first days in office. The version given approval late last Friday is substantially similar to those proposed under Bush but duck some of the most controversial aspects:

In soil, the PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period

Syria's War to Get Dirtier than Ever

From small clandestine offices in countries as far flung as Qatar, Jordan, Turkey and Croatia, US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers have acted as brokers and overseers of a massive arms shipment programme to Syria's opposition rebels.

With the operation shrouded in secrecy, the CIA declines to comment publicly on the arms supply. US officials instead talk of its existence in a kind of coded doublespeak referring to "a maturing of the opposition's logistical pipeline."

But exist it definitely does, and according to arms-trafficking investigators who are monitoring data on the weapons' supplies, the scale of the shipments is huge.

"A conservative estimate of the payload of these flights would be 3500 tons of military equipment," confirmed Hugh Griffiths, of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in a recent detailed analysis of the illicit transfer outlined in a New York Times (NYT) investigation.

"The intensity and frequency of these flights," says Griffiths, are "suggestive of a well-planned and co-ordinated clandestine military logistics operation."

According to the data compiled and information gleaned from Syrian rebel commanders, the NYT investigation reveals that, with CIA help, both Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been moving military material via Esenboga airport in Turkey to the opposition since, respectively, early and late 2012.

The covert arming and training of the rebels, by the US and other allies, has been going on since at least May 2011. The talk in the media about the West only recently arming these groups is misinformation.

What if... [thoughts on the Boston Bombing]

False Flag sure if the Evidence shows that fine. Independent terrorism? Could be, don't dismiss it out right. Don't jump to conclusions. Hollywood Theater? absolutely not if you think like that go jump off a bridge and pretend not to land see how it works out for you.

The Boston bombing could easily be domestic terror like the Washington DC Sniper incident or the Unabomber. We just don't know. It's possible the FBI will try to frame someone nevertheless.

A clue to the bomber's motive may lie in the fact that the JFK library was also a target. There are a lot of different groups that do not like JFK. However, with mass killers, and false flags operations, sometimes the targets that are chosen only follow very broad goals - that it is a location frequented by people.

Assault On Gold Update — Paul Craig Roberts

Possibly the Fed fears a dollar crisis or derivative blowup is nearing and is trying to reset the gold/dollar price prior to the outbreak of trouble. If ill winds are forecast, the Fed might feel it is better positioned to deal with crisis if the price of bullion is lower and confidence in bullion as a refuge has been shaken.

In addition to short selling that is clearly intended to drive down the gold price, orchestration is also indicated by the advance announcements this month first from brokerage houses and then from Goldman Sachs that hedge funds and institutional investors would be selling their gold positions. The purpose of these announcements was to encourage individual investors to get out of gold before the big boys did. Does anyone believe that hedge funds and Wall Street would announce their sales in advance so the small fry can get out of gold at a higher price than they do?

If these advanced announcements are not orchestration, what are they?

I see the orchestrated effort to suppress the price of gold and silver as a sign that the authorities are frightened that trouble is brewing that they cannot control unless there is strong confidence in the dollar. Otherwise, what is the point of the heavy short selling and orchestrated announcements of gold sales in advance of the sales?

Roberts reports that Gold traders still have more buyers than sellers for the physical. The price will go back up - although corrupt efforts to keep try to keep it low.

Deadly Boston Marathon Terror Attack

FBI identifies the explosions at the Boston Marathon as terrorist attack. Also a White House official says the Boston bombings will be handled as "an act of terror." Now in response to the multiple blasts and additional explosives found in Boston during its annual marathon, America's larger cities are heightening security measures as a precaution.

This is a fairly early report on the bombing. If unexploded devices were found there may be material to lead the police to the bomber(s). Hopefull there is CCTV footage of the area that may provide clues. At the time of posting we have no suspects and we do not have any idea who may be responsible. This may be a legitimate case of domestic terrorism. Not everything is false flag.

Syrian Human Rights Front is EU-Funded Fraud

In reality, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has long ago been exposed as an absurd propaganda front operated by Rami Abdul Rahman out of his house in England's countryside. According to a December 2011 Reuters article titled, "Coventry - an unlikely home to prominent Syria activist," Abdul Rahman admits he is a member of the so-called "Syrian opposition" and seeks the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad
The New York Times also for the first time reveals that Abdul Rahman's operation is indeed funded by the European Union and a "European country" he refuses to identify:

Money from two dress shops covers his minimal needs for reporting on the conflict, along with small subsidies from the European Union and one European country that he declines to identify.
And while Abdul Rahman refuses to identify that "European country," it is beyond doubt that it is the United Kingdom itself - as Abdul Rahman has direct access to the Foreign Secretary William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. The NYT in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago

Chemical in Food Packaging Can Harm Unborn Babies, Say French Officials

France's health authority has released an alarming report on the potentially toxic effects of a controversial industrial chemical used in food packaging on pregnant women and their unborn children.

It claims a baby's exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) in the womb could be linked to a wide range of health and behavioural problems – including breast cancer – later in life.

The report also warns that products marked "BPA-free" contain alternative substances whose long-term health effects have not been fully studied.

In its report (pdf) released publicly on Tuesday, the French National Agency for Health, Food, Environment and Work Safety (ANSES) declared that BPA has been absorbed by "the whole of western populations".

In recent years the organic compound, which is contained in a huge range of objects including tins, boxes, bottles and even dental fillings, has caused alarm as an "endocrine disruptor" because of its capacity to mimic oestrogen, and thus interfere with the hormone system in humans and animals.

UN Reports Libyan Weapons Have Turned Up in 12 Countries

A UN report asserted that Libyan weapons were fueling conflicts throughout the Middle East and Africa. The Security Council’s Group of Experts said Libya has become the key source of heavy weapons, including anti-tank systems, in North Africa.

“Cases, both proven and under investigation, of illicit transfers from Libya in violation of the embargo cover more than 12 countries and include heavy and light weapons, including man-portable air defense systems, small arms and related ammunition and explosives and mines,” the report said.

Released on April 9, the UN report cited the flow of Libyan weapons in Egypt, Mali and Syria. In a 94-page report, the UN experts said the arms flow was facilitated by the lack of authority in Libya, where militias remain in control of much of the country.

The arms coming out of Libya have been facilitated by the Western Powers in conjunction with Israel, Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia - these are the same countries backing the rebels in Syria.

In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to James Turk about money, gold, bitcoin, currency wars and the nature of bank failures: to look good until the bank fails overnight. They also discuss Austrian school theories on money and how they relate to gold and to bitcoin.

The Gold Bull Market is Dead -- Long Live the Bull Market

Why the recent sell-off in gold and silver defies the fundamentals, ignores the facts, is predicated on a myth, and has succeeded in creating the necessary level of scepticism and fear to finally propel precious metals to new record highs.

Winner Takes All: The Super-priority Status of Derivatives

The Cyprus bail-in was not a one-off emergency measure but was consistent with similar policies already in the works for the US, UK, EU, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, as detailed in my earlier articles here and here. "Too big to fail" now trumps all. Rather than banks being put into bankruptcy to salvage the deposits of their customers, the customers will now be put into bankruptcy to save the banks.

Why Derivatives Threaten Your Bank Account

The big risk behind all this is the massive $230 trillion derivatives boondoggle managed by US banks. Derivatives are sold as a kind of insurance for managing profits and risk; but as Satyajit Das points out in Extreme Money, they actually increase risk to the system as a whole.

In the US after the Glass-Steagall Act was implemented in 1933, a bank could not gamble with depositor funds for its own account; but in 1999, that barrier was removed. Recent congressional investigations have revealed that in the biggest derivative banks, JPMorgan and Bank of America, massive commingling has occurred between their depository arms and their unregulated and highly vulnerable derivatives arms. Under both the Dodd Frank Act and the 2005 Bankruptcy Act, derivative claims have super-priority over all other claims, secured and unsecured, insured and uninsured. In a major derivatives fiasco, derivative claimants could well grab all the collateral, leaving other claimants, public and private, holding the bag.

It looks like no one's money is safe with the banks if the losses on derivatives take priority. This is bad news.

How the West Fueled the Ever-Growing Carnage in Syria

The more one studies the actions of the United States and its allies throughout this crisis, the more they seem to have been designed only to lead to ever-escalating violence. This raises the inescapable question whether, in fact, the slaughter and chaos taking place in Syria are in fact the intended result of U.S. policy rather than the tragic but unintended result of its failure, as Western propaganda would have us believe.

In stark contrast to cautious statements by U.S. officials, their actual policy appears to have consistently fostered the militarization and escalation of the crisis and to have undermined every peace initiative. In fact, their public statements may be only a smokescreen for a darker, more cynical policy.

- As the Arab League tried to broker a ceasefire in December 2011, ex-CIA officer Philip Giraldi reported that unmarked NATO planes were flying fighters and weapons from Libya to a "Free Syrian Army" base in Turkey; British and French special forces were training Syrian fighters; and the CIA was providing communications equipment and intelligence. Giraldi wrote, "Syrian government claims that it is being assaulted by rebels who are armed, trained and financed by foreign governments are more true than false."

- As Kofi Annan launched his peace plan in April 2012, the U.S. joined France and other allies at a series of so-called "Friends of Syria" summits, where they promised unconditional political support, weapons and money to their Syrian proxies, making sure that they would not comply with the ceasefire that was the first step in the Annan peace plan.

- After finally dropping the precondition of Assad's departure and agreeing publicly to Annan's "Action Group for Syria" proposal at the end of June 2012, the Western powers returned to the UN Security Council and reasserted all their preconditions, killing the plan before it could get off the ground.

- The supply of weapons and fighters to the rebels has increased steadily since then.

In the propaganda infested mainstream media we are treated with endless stories about whether the US should be sending arms to the rebels. What a joke! The US has been involved in this conflict from the very beginning - training and arming the rebels in Turkey. Covert wars are conducted via proxy so that involvement can be kept hidden. In this case they are only fooling those who have no access to the alternative media.
