How Obama Chose War Over Peace in Syria


With Syria on the brink of national genocide, outside nations have only two options: help reverse the catastrophe or plunge this torn nation deeper into the abyss. Countries can either work towards a peaceful political solution or they can continue to pour money, guns, and fighters into the country to ensure a steady gushing into the bloodbath.

President Obama will have no talk of peace. He has chosen war since the very start and he’s sticking to it. A recent New York Times article revealed that President Obama has been lying through his teeth about the level of U.S. involvement in the Syrian conflict since the beginning.

The President recently said that the U.S. government continues to give only “non-lethal” military aid to the rebels, but the New York Times revealed that the CIA has been actively funneling and distributing massive shipments of weapons to the rebels over the borders of Jordan and Turkey.
---------------------------------------------
If not for this U.S.-sponsored flood of guns, the Syrian rebels — many of them from Saudi Arabia and other countries — would have been militarily defeated long ago. Tens of thousands of lives would thus have been spared and a million refugees could have remained in their homes in Syria. The large scale ethnic cleansing initiated by the rebels would have been preventable.

But Obama is so intent on war that he will not even discuss peace with the Syrian government. He has repeatedly stated that there are “preconditions” for peace negotiations, the most important one being the downfall of the Syrian government, i.e., regime change. If a toppling of a nation’s government is Obama’s precondition for peace, then Obama is by definition choosing war.

Obama is a Nobel Peace Prize carrying war criminal.

Game Not Over: Iraq Bomb Attacks Kill Candidates Ahead of Elections


A regional Iraqi election candidate has narrowly escaped an attempt on his life after a bomb found in his home was disarmed. Others have been less fortunate, 5 candidates were killed in assassinations, bombings and raids this month. The attacks target both officials and voting stations and are believed to be the work of al-Qaeda cells. Former MI5 agent Annie Machon gives her perspective to RT.



Note that Machon calls the war illegal. This is a fact. Bush, Blair and associates still need to face war crimes charges.

Russian Authorities Raid (CIA front) Human Rights Watch Offices in Moscow


Russian authorities searched the Moscow offices of New-York based Human Rights Watch yesterday as they stepped up raids against pro-democracy groups despite growing EU concern.

HRW’s Europe and Central Asia department head Rachel Denber said three representatives from the prosecutor’s office and a tax official had begun what they called “an unplanned inspection” of the Moscow office.

She said the Moscow headquarters of the Civic Assistance refugees centre and of the Transparency International corruption watchdog had been raided in a similar manner.

“This is part of a massive, unprecedented wave of inspections of NGOs (non-governmental organisations) in Russia that is intensifying pressure on civil society in the wake of the adoption of a number of restrictive laws last year,” Denber said by e-mail.

“The scale of these inspections serves to reinforce the menacing atmosphere for civil society created by the adoption of last year’s laws.”

The raids followed President Vladimir Putin’s signature of a law that labelled Russian political organisations with Western funding as “foreign agents” that required more rigorous checks.

Putin blamed the US State Department for funding the protests that rose against his return to the presidency last winter and moved quickly against the NGOs once confirmed to power in May.
http://12160.info/page/russian-authorities-raided-cia-front-human-rights-watch-offices-i

Putin is running a counter-intelligence/counter-insurgency operation here. With the US using 'human rights' as cover for war in Libya and Syria, while ignoring State crimes in Yemen or Bahrain, and funneling heroin out of Afghanistan via proxies onto the black market, plus funding Islamic extremist groups globally, the Russians should be very concerned with efforts to destabilised their country.

Modern Terrorism and Privateers - MUST SEE


When they cant hire out to Islamic crazies as secret privateers, they just contract out openly to Christian fanatics through private organizations like Blackwater. Blackwater however can not even pretend to pose as grass root revolutionaries, that's why the CIA uses its rent-a-terrorist Islamic fanatics for those operations.



A Vital History Lesson for anyone with half a brain living in the 21st Century. This clip explains a lot of what we see in the Corporate News concerning ongoing conflict around the world - particularly in the Middle East.

Obama Signs Monsanto Protection Act Into Law After Promising GMO Labeling in 2007


President Obama has signed into law the notorious Monsanto Protection Act legislation hidden inside of the Continuing Resolution spending bill, which protects Monsanto and its genetically modified creations from federal courts.

Passing up the chance to veto the bill in favor of stopping Monsanto’s increasing monopoly on the food supply, Obama pushed the bill through into a law in a move that reminds us of his failed 2007 promise to ‘immediately’ label GMOs upon his election.

Contained in the rider (Farmer Assurance Provision, Sec. 735) of HR 933, Monsanto is now even protected (at least under this law) from the United States government.

Salafists Not Assad, Apparently Behind Reported Chemical Attack in Syria


Numerous witnesses of the Aleppo “chemical weapon” attack mentioned the smell of chlorine. This looks increasingly to be a chlorine gas bombing similar to those conducted by salafist militants in Iraq in and around 2007. Here’s a NYT article on one of them:
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/17/world/middleeast/17cnd-iraq.html  

These are the same salafist jihadists who are flooding the Syrian borders from Iraq, Libya and every other salafist hellhole – backed fully by the US, UK and France – and paid for by the Saudis and Qataris.

It is no wonder the UK and France were pushing back against a UN investigation of the attack this week.

The Telegraph reports that the military source who spoke to Channel 4 News confirmed that artillery reports from the Syrian Army suggest a small rocket was fired from the vicinity of Al-Bab, a district close to Aleppo that is controlled by Jabhat al-Nusra – a jihadist group said to be linked with al-Qaeda and deemed a “terrorist organization” by the US.
http://www.veteransnewsnow.com/2013/03/27/222806-salafists-not-assad-apparently-behind-reported-chemical-attack-in-syria/

The fighting in Syria is thanks to Western intervention. There would be no war without this criminal support.

'We Died When Obama Indefinitely Detained us' - Gitmo Inmate


The situation is getting desperate in Guantanamo with many of the hunger striking inmates prepared to die, federal public defender Carlos Warner told RT, stressing that his client is calling on the Obama administration to either 'respect or kill' them.



None of these people ever represented a threat to the USA because 911 was an inside job. Those captured in armed conflict only ever reacted to US aggression.

9/11 Was an Inside Job, Created to Start a War that would Not End in Our Lifetimes




From an intelligence perspective 911 was most likely an inside job. From a scientific perspective the evidence of melted steel, the thermite traces (conventional and explosive), the freefall collapse of WTC7, the explosive ejections of debris, and the eyewitness reports plus recordings of explosions PROVE the attacks were an inside job.

Ryan Dawson Explains the Evidence Showing an Aircraft hit the Pentagon on 911 - Countering Misconceptions


If you think a missile hit the Pentagon or that nothing hit the building then watch this clip and be mature enough to accept that one cannot be correct all the time. We know from evidence that explosives must have been used on the World Trade Centre buildings and we know from the evidence that an aircraft hit the Pentagon. [Re-posted because of recent pictures pushing no planes theories at the Pentagon.]



Note: Dawson is talking about the 'disinformation kooks' who are poisoning the well by pushing outlandish, and baseless theories, as opposed to the disinfo trolls that are defending the official story. One thing is for sure, this whole process is slowly but surely providing a great education for many people - teaching them to be independent thinkers!

Dawson's summation is worth reflecting upon. We must look at the data and the players involved, whilst being prepared to play devil's advocate, and ditch hypotheses that have a low chance of being correct. The Pentagon missile theory makes little sense considering the wreckage and damage to the building. The most likely hyopthesis, one that accounts for the majority of the crime scene observations, would favour using a large airliner as the weapon.

A Simple Solution for Bob Geldof - Enforce the Law


The following is a letter sent to the ABC program Lateline after watching an interview with Sir Bob about fixing the corrupt corporate system. He saw that the corporations were causing no end of trouble to people everywhere - in the first world and also in the third world. Mr Geldof advocated throwing the whole thing away - something that is pretty difficult to achieve.

Thanks to experience gained in the online media (via the Keiser Report or the writing of Paul Craig Roberts) we can imagine that many of the problems we see today are a result of bonafide criminal activity and can be solved through the enforcement of the Law. This is a simple message that any activist can take onboard.
(And note: those that cover up crimes can be chaged with a criminal offence. People like the US Attorney General can be prosecuted for failure to enforce the Law.)
___________________________________________

LETTER:   A Simple Solution for Bob Geldof - Enforce the Law

Much of the troubles and inequality we face today would be ended if Laws were enforced by the US Justice Department and by Law Enforcement officials in London. Some Laws that prevented destructive activity have been recently revoked. Two things need to happen. Old Laws must put back in place, and existing Law enforced. When we can fix the problems in the first world we will become more equitable towards 3rd World Countries.

Consider when huge banks commit acts of fraud (google ex-Savings and Loans prosecutor Professor William Black for analysis) and nothing is done, and where Laws going back to the Great Depression are revoked (Glass-Steagall, under the Clinton Admin), and where campaign finance Laws are removed or made irrelevant (Super PACs). Through thee actions we open the door for money stealing and the victimisation of the poor and middle class by predatory individuals existing at the heart of the financial and corporate sectors.

Likewise, when we have US Presidents authorising torture, engaging in illegal wars (along with the British), and nothing is done, we see the wealth of Nations chewed up to serve the interests of the few. Corporate coffers are filled and the changed landscape facilitates more of the same with little real criticism coming from the corporate press. Fraud, torture and aggressive war are no longer identified by their real names thus masking the criminal nature of these endeavours.

This is the same situation we see in resource-rich third world "basket case" countries. When the Law is not applied to protect the people we see advantages created, often organically, to serve those with a hold on power. The advantages serve the political and corporate elite - not the country as a whole - and are almost wholly criminal in nature (racketeering, kickbacks, fraud etc). There is no trickle down benefit to the poor.

Saving the bankers and placing their losses on the people, like what happened in Ireland, did not help the people or economy. There was no trickle down benefit. Prosecuting bankers for fraud, like in Iceland, and having the Government protect the people, lead to growth and relative salvation. The difference here is in the application of Laws.

In the West and in the Third World the problem is the same. The wealth of countries, via finance and resource acquisition, are being concentrated towards the top. Where we do not see Law or Justice served then we must deal with human issues of greed, narcissism, the corrupting nature of power, and other psychological conditions that apply to those that covet or inhabit positions of power.

Did Obama Give Israel Go-Ahead With Syria?


The sequence of events leads one to ask, what did the two leaders, Obama and Netanyahu, discuss regarding Syria when they met multiple times this last week in Jerusalem? And what did they agree to do to deal with the Syria issue?

The answers aren’t immediately clear.

But we do know that the two discussed Syria. “Mr. President, we discussed today the situation in Syria,” said Netanyahu at a joint press conference with the two leaders. ”We share the goal of seeing a stable and peaceful Syria emerge from the carnage that we have witnessed over the last two years. That carnage has already resulted in the deaths of over 70,000 people and the suffering of millions. We also share a determination to prevent the deadly arsenal of weapons within Syria from falling into the hands of terrorist hands. And I have no doubt that the best way to do that is to work closely with the United States and other countries in the region to address this challenge. And that is what we intend to do.”

Obama, who was asked at least twice on the trip about allowing the bloodshed to continue in Syria, said, “With respect to Syria, the United States continues to work with allies and friends and the Syrian opposition to hasten the end of Assad’s rule, to stop the violence against the Syrian people, and begin a transition toward a new government that respects the rights of all its people.”

He continued, “Assad has lost his legitimacy to lead by attacking the Syrian people with almost every conventional weapon in his arsenal, including Scud missiles. And we have been clear that the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. We also share Israel’s grave concern about the transfer of chemical or other weapon systems to terrorists — such as Hezbollah — that might be used against Israel. The Assad regime must understand that they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists.”

Iraq After Ten Years — Paul Craig Roberts


March 19, 2013. Ten years ago today the Bush regime invaded Iraq. It is known that the justification for the invasion was a packet of lies orchestrated by the neoconservative Bush regime in order to deceive the United Nations and the American people.

The US Secretary of State at that time, General Colin Powell, has expressed his regrets that he was used by the Bush regime to deceive the United Nations with fake intelligence that the Bush and Blair regimes knew to be fake. But the despicable presstitute media has not apologized to the American people for serving the corrupt Bush regime as its Ministry of Propaganda and Lies.

It is difficult to discern which is the most despicable, the corrupt Bush regime, the presstitutes that enabled it, or the corrupt Obama regime that refuses to prosecute the Bush regime for its unambiguous war crimes, crimes against the US Constitution, crimes against US statutory law, and crimes against humanity.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
The human cost to Iraq of America’s infamy is extraordinary: 4.5 million displaced Iraqis, as many as 1 million dead civilians leaving widows and orphans, a professional class that has departed the country, an infrastructure in ruins, and social cohesion destroyed by the Sunni-Shia conflict that was ignited by Washington’s destruction of the Saddam Hussein government.

It is a sick joke that the United States government brought freedom and democracy to Iraq. What the Washington war criminals brought was death and the destruction of a country.

The US population, for the most part, seems quite at ease with the gratuitous destruction of Iraq and all that it entails: children without parents, wives without husbands, birth defects from “depleted” uranium, unsafe water, a country without hope mired in sectarian violence.

Researchers Link ‘Unfounded’ Wars to Increased Risk of PTSD


New research suggests that post-traumatic stress disorder is linked to social morality, a finding that helps elucidate the relationship between politics and veterans’ mental health.

“The clinical psychological literature suggests that a key factor in PTSD experienced by soldiers at war is the guilt that is experienced from perpetrated acts of violence that violate moral standards,” the study’s lead author, David Webber of the University of Alberta, explained to Raw Story. “This is why in our study we focused on guilt-related symptoms. In the sense that killing is deemed immoral in most cases, and soldiers are asked to kill, it’s only if a soldier is able to view that killing as different or acceptable (i.e., moral), that guilt should not arise.”

US-Led Libyan Abuses Worse than Gadhafi


Since the U.S.-led violent regime change in Libya, Hassan El Amin, chair of Libya's parliament human-right committee told a U.S. newspaper reporter than rights abuses are worse there than during Gadhafi's leadership.

“I have so many concerns about human rights violations in Libya, it is getting to a stage where it is even worse than during Gadhafi’s time,” El Amin told the Washington Times. “A lot of facts have become clear about human rights abuses [by the militias], the continuous attacks on the government, the kidnappings, and all of this is setting off a warning bell for the Libyan people.

RECAP: The Iraq War Lies

Remember folks, the Iraq War was SOLD on LIES. There would have been NO conflict, and NO massive death toll without these lies. The War was completely unnecessary and constitutes a War Crime. War Crimes Trials need to be initiated immediately.

We know that the WMD lies in question were part of a deliberate, politically driven, deception since the intelligence indicated there was no credible threat from Saddam. It is therefore imperative that leaders such as Bush, Blair, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and others be arrested and sent to the Hague for prosecution.

Note to Dr Hans Blix, our imperious Western leaders didn't go to war on any real material proof that Saddam was a threat. The intelligence reports Bush and Blair were privy to obviously hindered the War Agenda. Whether it was for good intentions (unlikely) or not, they criminally fabricated a case to make it look like Saddam still had WMD capability. For such actions they must stand trial. As evidence of this criminal manipulation of data I cite:

1. The Dodgy Dossier: The UK Government's obviously "sexed up" (2002) report on Saddam's WMDs containing the infamous "45 minute threat": http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s1041136.htm

2. Expert Testimony from the House Judiciary Committee Hearings: Executive Power & the Bush Administration (impeachment hearings): Note the books cited by the Committee Chair in the introductions to the speakers (from 2008):

a). Vincent Bugliosi on the October 2002 NIE, a document that was misrepresented to show Saddam as an imminent threat when the exact opposite was true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcfpms98GeQ&feature=PlayList&p=9F833EE81EC327C0&index=28

b). Elizabeth Holtz. See time 7:46 where the witness talks about "deceptions with respect to the Iraq War..."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=en-GB&v=dohgkV53tBQ

3. The Downing Street Memos (2005) http://downingstreetmemo.com/ According to this highly placed UK memo, I quote: "the [US] intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy" so that War could be waged against Iraq.

4. US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence review of Iraq War Intelligence (June 5, 2008) http://intelligence.senate.gov/press/record.cfm?id=298775 Quote: "In making the case for war, the Administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when in reality it was unsubstantiated."

5. Australian Documentary "Truth, Lies and Intelligence" (from 2005) References to expert testimony on Iraq War Intelligence being fabricated: Greg Thielman, Joseph Wilson et al. The following is a short clip taken from the full length program: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ztzu0G8KcSA&feature=player_embedded

6: US 60 minutes Interview (2004) with ex-Bush Administration insider Paul O'Neal who stated that the Administration was looking for ways to launch a war with Iraq 10 days after the inauguration. Please ignore the sound effects on this promo clip and recognise the importance of the 60 minutes information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEZnL_VVHPc&feature=player_embedded

7: NBC Keith Olbermann report on the non-profit Center for Public Integrity (google them) - tallied 935 false statements made by eight top members of the Administration in the two years after September 11th, including, obviously, the run up to the Iraq war (story from Feb 2008): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhKYc7cTZR4 One could postulate that the intelligence might have been mistaken, but as we have seen previously, in the other clips, the raw intelligence assessments did not correlate with what they were saying publicly (ie these are therefore more deliberate lies, unsubstantiated statements in conflict with intelligence facts).

10th Anniversary of Israel's US War on Iraq


The lie, policy papers, and government officials, from the Pentagon down to the speech writers who pushed for the case for war against Iraq were 100% Neocons, 100% tied to Israel, it was not a war for oil, it was a war for Israeli power.






This is an excellent account of how we ended up with the Iraq War. It also covers the Anthrax attacks too.  The Anthrax came from a US bio-weapons lab, not Al Qaeda or Iraq. And the Anthrax was posted from locations near the hijacker cells. So even though the hijackers had no access to US military bio-weapons someone close to them did - who likely knew about the hijackers.

What happened with Iraq was criminal. War crimes trials still need to be held. There is no statute of limitations for murder.

Kucinich: Gitmo Black Mark on US, Absurd & Lawless


A top US general says the hunger strike among Guantanamo Bay prisoners shows their frustration with the government's failure to close the facility - rejecting reports it's over mistreatment and the desecration of the Koran. The number of participants acknowledged by the Pentagon has now risen to 25 - but detainees' lawyers maintain it's more than one hundred. Former Democratic Congressman and two time presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, says Guantanamo is a symptom of America's ongoing post 9/11 anxiety.



Kucinich needs to come out and say that Obama has been corrupted which 'prevents' him making any moves to close Guantanamo and end the War on Terror.

Fact vs. Fiction: True Cost of Iraq War


Ten years ago, the US entered Iraq with two goals in mind: depose of Sadam Hussein and locate and take control of the country's alleged weapons of mass destruction. The Bush Administration promised the war would be quick, cost effective and require few troops. RT Correspondent Meghan Lopez separates fact from fiction on the tenth anniversary of the Iraq war.



RT needs to mention that the neocons deliberately lied about Iraq in order to launch the unnecessary war.

Dick Cheney (Proven Liar): 9/11 Cover Up


Abby Martin speaks with independent journalist, and co-host of Media Roots Radio, Robbie Martin, about the recent revelations of former vice president Dick Cheney lying to the 9/11 commission, and what larger implications this could have.



Cheney recently said there was a shootdown order, a statement contradicted by the 911 Commission. Often liars cannot keep their facts straight. The interview also covers other key facts about the post 911 'investigations'. Abby nails it when saying that these attacks are the crux of everything that has followed since - in terms of the war on terror and geopolitical escapades (ie actions violating the rule of Law).

It looks like only the truth about 911 will free us from the on going corrupt system.

Ryan Dawson on the Poisoned Well of Truth


Even if you don't fully accept how Dawson has characterised the situation he is making a very good point - that the more 'outlandish' the claims being aired in public, with associations to things way outside normal people's experience, or to racist themes, the less likely it is that ordinary people will even want to look into evidence of a large scale conspiracy. When legitimate criticism is associated with material that suggests mental illness, the 'well of truth' is poisoned. This is a key problem for many in our society and this needs to be overcome to allow for a level of intellectual progress in the general population.

Tariq Ali: US, UK Never Faced Justice for Iraq War Crimes


At least 56 people have been killed in a series of attacks across Baghdad. The deadly assaults come as Iraq marks ten years since the coalition, led by the US and Britain, invaded the country with their 'freedom and democracy' mission. Historian and political campaigner, Tariq Ali, says it's surprising that no-one has been held responsible for creating havoc in Iraq.



The 10th Anniversary of the illegal invasion of Iraq is this year.

Cyprus Disaster is Worse Than You Think! [UPDATED]


The Cyprus Bailout is the result of years and years of escalating attacks against taxpayers all across the world. This bailout is in reality a grand theft. The European Union is offering the island nation a supposed 13 billion euro bailout that will come at the cost of having bank accounts taxed 9.9%. Small accounts will be taxed 6.7%, while people with larger savings will lose at least 9.9% of your money. This is never happened before. And you can beg your bank account that it will happen again. I think this is a test run for something bigger.

This is why bailouts don’t work.

1. Bailouts are essentially legalized theft. A transfer of wealth from one group (usually taxpayers) to a privilege group (usually bankers).

2. Bailouts prevent failed leaders and ideas from failing. This encourages the group to continue the behavior that led to failure in the first place.

3. Bailouts punish the successful companies and groups by stealing from them and destroying true competition.

Syria Accuses Rebels of Firing Chemical Weapon


Syrian state media accused rebels of firing a chemical weapon for the first time on Tuesday in the north of the country on Tuesday, killing 15 people. Rebels quickly denied the report and accused regime forces of firing the weapon.

Neither of the accusations could immediately be verified.

The Syrian state news agency SANA said “terrorists” fired a rocket “containing chemical materials” into the area around the village ofKhan al-Assal in the northern province of Aleppo. The regime regularly uses the term terrorists to refer to rebels fighting to overthrow authoritarian President Bashar Assad.

SANA said about 15 people, most of them civilians, were killed and a number of others were wounded.

An activist in the area said rebels had recently seized much of the village of Khan al-Assal including a facility that housed a military academy.

The Aleppo Media Center, affiliated with the rebels, said there were cases of “suffocation and poison” among civilians in Khan al-Assal after a surface-to-surface missile was fired at the area. It said in a statement the cases were “most likely” caused by regime forces’ use of “poisonous gases.”

Assad Asks BRICS ‘to Intervene’ in Syria Crisis – Aide


Syria’s President Bashar Assad has pleaded for BRICS countries to mediate the on-going conflict in the country, according to a close adviser.

"Today I passed a message from President Bashar al-Assad to President Jacob Zuma, who will preside over the March 26 BRICS summit, on the subject of the situation in Syria," senior adviser Bouthaina Shaaban told AFP.

"In this message, President Bashar al-Assad asks for intervention by the BRICS to stop the violence in his country and encourage the opening of a dialogue, which he wishes to start."

BRICS is a bloc of up-and-coming economies comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
http://rt.com/news/syria-brics-assad-summit-370/

The request is a reasonable one since it was the West via Turkey that had planned and trained armed fighters to overthrow Assad from day one. There would have been no war except for outside assistance.

When Truth Is Suppressed Countries Die — Paul Craig Roberts

Over the decade I repeated myself many times: “Innovation takes place where things are made. Innovation will move abroad with the manufacturing.”

This is not what corporations or their shills such as Porter wanted to hear. Corporations were boosting their profits by getting rid of their American employees and replacing them with lowly paid foreigners. Porter’s job was to reassure the sheeple so that no outcry would materialize against the greed that was hollowing out the US economy.
------------------------------------------------
If those who speak truth cannot be bought off or shut up, they are ignored or demonized. Almost everything Americans need to know is off limits in public discussion. Anyone who broaches the truth becomes an “anti-American,” a “terrorist sympathizer,” a “commie-socialist,” a “conspiracy theorist,” an “anti-semite,” a “kook,” or some other name designed to scare Americans away from the message of truth.

The corrupt corporations, the corrupt media, and the corrupt US government have insulated the country from truth. The result will be a massive crash. A country built on lies is like a house built on sand:

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock [truth]. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand [lies].The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

'N. Korea Useful Idiot for US to Increase Pacific Region Presence'


Washington has scrapped a key phase of its European missile defence shield, citing a lack of funds and development problems. The United States will deploy additional ground-based missile interceptors on its Pacific Coast instead, in what is said to be a response to Pyongyang's recent nuclear threats. Former MI5 agent Annie Machon, believes Washington is using the threats from North Korea as a pretext to gain more influence in the pacific region.



The threats being pushed by the USA do serve geopolitical interests but they also serve the corporate rent seekers. Failed programs and tons of useless weapons are still paid for by the Government and help the short term price of defence stocks. The longer the fear factor can be kept going the longer the money keeps being spent.
Of course if there is real conflict - fighting on the Korean peninsula that does not expand far outside the region - debt-money will be required to rebuild and re-arm after the war. This is an ideal situation for many corporate interests.

Air Force’s Air Defense Radar Systems Along U.S./Mexico Border will SHUTDOWN Today (to Facilitate Increased Drug Trafficking)


On January 17th, 2013, Exelis Systems Corporation sent out an email (see email below) to all of its employees informing them that on March 15th, 2013 all TARS Air Defense Mission Operations will permanently cease. These TARS Air Defense sites were under the control of the United States Air Force. On January 15th, 2013, the Air Force informed Exelis (the defense contractor running the TARS sites) that the TARS sites will be shut down. Exelis tried to then negotiate with the Department of Homeland Security to see if they would take over the vital project, but it seems as though those negotiations have failed. What does this mean?

This means the southern border of the United States of America will be more vulnerable to attack from low flying aircrafts, low altitude missiles, and other infiltrations such as smuggling.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one Exelis employee had this to say about the announced closure of the TARS sites:
“Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas. These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders. Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected. It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.”
According to the Air Force’s website, the Tethered Aerostat Radar System, or TARS, is an aerostat-borne, surveillance program. Using the aerostat as a stationary airborne platform for a surveillance radar, the system is capable of detecting low altitude aircraft at the radar’s maximum range by mitigating curvature of the earth and terrain masking limitations. TARS provides a detection and monitoring capability along the United States-Mexico border, the Florida Straits, and a portion of the Caribbean in support of the Department of Defense Counterdrug Program.
http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/air-forces-air-defense-radar-systems-along-u-s-mexico-border-will-shutdown-today/37911/

The real reason to shut down this part of the air defense radar system is to make it easier for drug flights to come in from Mexico. The plan is to destroy the US through drug wars and allow for a tighter Police State or Martial Law. The Department of Homeland security has billions of rounds of ammunition and Armoured Trucks for this scenario.

Please note that the US has been working with one of the drug cartels in Mexico, giving them arms via the Fast and Furious program, to assist in this likely outcome:

David Shoebridge Criticises Parliamentary Friends of Israel 'Study Tour' [Motion Debate]


Following is a speech delivered by David Shoebridge in the NSW Legislative Council on Thursday 14 March 2013.

________________________________

There was more information on this 'debate' at WRH.com. Apparently other individuals, ones that were obviously not corrupted(!), speaking out about the unjustifiable tour:
A shouting match broke out in the chambers of the New South Wales (NSW) Legislative Council chambers on Thursday during a motion debate about a 'Study Mission to Israel' hosted by the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel under the auspices of the NSW Jewish Board Of Deputies, attended by a delegation of NSW Parliamentarians last January 6-10.


The purpose of the 'Study Mission' was "to build an understanding amongst the delegates of the complex and various issues impacting on Israel and other jurisdictions within the Middle East."(pdf)

While Legislative Council members who were part of the delegation sang the praises of Israel, Green Legislative Councillor David Shoebridge (video above), Labor Legislative Councillor's Shaoquett Moselmane, and Lynda Voltz had a few other topics to discuss.

Banking Chief Calls For 15% Looting of Italians’ Savings


News that the International Monetary Fund initially demanded to loot a shocking 40% of savings from the private bank accounts of Cypriots underscores how residents of the Mediterranean country could be the latest victims of the infamous “IMF riot,” as the chief economist of the German Commerzbank calls for Italians to be similarly plundered for 15% of their savings.

The government of Cyprus is set to vote today on enforcing a “tax,” which in reality is nothing less than a confiscation of private wealth, that would hit savers with between 100,000 to 500,000 euros with a levy of 9.9%. Those with over half a million euros will face an even higher rate of 15%.


However, the scale of the robbery could have been far higher. As Zero Hedge reports, “It appears that the settled-upon 9.9% haircut is a ‘good deal’ compared to the stunning 40% of total deposits that Germany’s FinMin Schaeuble and the IMF demanded.”

Now that the dictatorial EU and IMF have simply set about stealing the privately accrued wealth of lifetime savers in Europe, everyone is asking one question – who’s next?

Joerg Kraemer, chief economist of the German Commerzbank, has called for private savings accounts in Italy to be similarly plundered. “A tax rate of 15 percent on financial assets would probably be enough to push the Italian government debt to below the critical level of 100 percent of gross domestic product,” he told Handelsblatt.
http://www.infowars.com/banking-chief-calls-for-15-looting-of-italians-savings/

The asset stripping is on. This was predicted by Max Keiser years ago when the financial crisis unfolded.

In this situation the Cypriot banks, under the direction of the ECB, bought Greek bonds that have now caused huge losses.

The only hope of the people where the banks are overburdened with debt is to do as Iceland did and let the banks fail, protect the people's savings and prosecute any criminal activity perpetrated by the bankers and  government.

Autistic Children Have More Toxic Metals in their Blood


New evidence suggests that heavy metal exposure may be a cause of autism, in a study conducted by researchers from Arizona State University and published in the journal Biological Trace Element Research.

The researchers found that autistic children had significantly higher levels of numerous toxic metals in their blood than non-autistic children.

Autism is a neurological disorder that causes repetitive or restricted behavior and trouble with communication and social interaction. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it affects one in every 252 girls and one in every 54 boys in the United States. Although mainstream medicine long considered autism to be a hereditary disorder, increasing evidence is emerging that link the condition to various environmental factors, such as toxic exposure.
----------------------------------------------------
Based on three separate scales of autism severity, the researchers also found that higher blood levels of toxic metals were associated with more severe cases of autism. In fact, between 38 and 47 percent of all variation in autism severity could be explained by varying heavy metal levels, particularly cadmium and mercury. This made toxic metal burden the single "strongest factor" predicting severity, the researchers said.


On one level, the findings come as no surprise, given the well-established neurotoxic effects of heavy metal exposure.

"We knew that exposure to lead makes people lose IQ points, and clearly it can induce autism," lead researcher James Adams said. "The study also showed that people with the highest levels are least able to excrete them."
http://www.naturalnews.com/039492_autism_children_heavy_metals.html

Our artificial environment may be the leading cause of illness rather than genetics. We are looking at the more subtle 20th and 21st century equivalent of the lead poisoning seen in the 19th century.

Gitmo Inmate Hunger Strike Protests Indefinite 'Torture' Limbo


More than a hundred prisoners at the Guantanamo camp have been on a hunger strike for five weeks now, in a desperate attempt to draw attention to their dismal plight. The strike was launched in protest against the confiscation of personal letters, and the rough handling of their Korans. Their lawyers and human rights activists are sounding the alert over their critical condition, but US military officials claim nobody's in danger.



None of these people ever represented a threat to the USA. Al Qaeda did not destroy those three buidlings in New York on September 11, 2001.

Toxic link: the WHO and the IAEA - Why We Can't Trust WHO to be Honest About Health Hazards of Radiation


Fifty years ago, on 28 May 1959, the World Health Organisation's assembly voted into force an obscure but important agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency – the United Nations "Atoms for Peace" organisation, founded just two years before in 1957. The effect of this agreement has been to give the IAEA an effective veto on any actions by the WHO that relate in any way to nuclear power – and so prevent the WHO from playing its proper role in investigating and warning of the dangers of nuclear radiation on human health.

The WHO's objective is to promote "the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health", while the IAEA's mission is to "accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health and prosperity throughout the world". Although best known for its work to restrict nuclear proliferation, the IAEA's main role has been to promote the interests of the nuclear power industry worldwide, and it has used the agreement to suppress the growing body of scientific information on the real health risks of nuclear radiation.

Under the agreement, whenever either organisation wants to do anything in which the other may have an interest, it "shall consult the other with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement". The two agencies must "keep each other fully informed concerning all projected activities and all programs of work which may be of interest to both parties". And in the realm of statistics – a key area in the epidemiology of nuclear risk – the two undertake "to consult with each other on the most efficient use of information, resources, and technical personnel in the field of statistics and in regard to all statistical projects dealing with matters of common interest".

The language appears to be evenhanded, but the effect has been one-sided. For example, investigations into the health impacts of the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine on 26 April 1986 have been effectively taken over by IAEA and dissenting information has been suppressed. The health effects of the accident were the subject of two major conferences, in Geneva in 1995, and in Kiev in 2001. But the full proceedings of those conferences remain unpublished – despite claims to the contrary by a senior WHO spokesman reported in Le Monde Diplomatique.

Meanwhile, the 2005 report of the IAEA-dominated Chernobyl Forum, which estimates a total death toll from the accident of only several thousand, is widely regarded as a whitewash as it ignores a host of peer-reviewed epidemiological studies indicating far higher mortality and widespread genomic damage. Many of these studies were presented at the Geneva and Kiev conferences but they, and the ensuing learned discussions, have yet to see the light of day thanks to the non-publication of the proceedings.

The British radiation biologist Keith Baverstock is another casualty of the agreement, and of the mindset it has created in the WHO. He served as a radiation scientist and regional adviser at the WHO's European Office from 1991 to 2003, when he was sacked after expressing concern to his senior managers that new epidemiological evidence from nuclear test veterans and from soldiers exposed to depleted uranium indicated that current risk models for nuclear radiation were understating the real hazards.
----------------------------------------
But the scientific case against the agreement is building up, most recently when the European Committee on Radiation Risk (ECRR) called for its abandonment at its conference earlier this month in Lesvos, Greece.

At the conference, research was presented indicating that as many as a million children across Europe and Asia may have died in the womb as a result of radiation from Chernobyl, as well as hundreds of thousands of others exposed to radiation fallout, backing up earlier findings published by the ECRR in Chernobyl 20 Years On: Health Effects of the Chernobyl Accident. Delegates heard that the standard risk models for radiation risk published by the International Committee on Radiological Protection (ICRP), and accepted by WHO, underestimate the health impacts of low levels of internal radiation by between 100 and 1,000 times – consistent with the ECRR's own 2003 model of radiological risk (The Health Effects of Ionising Radiation Exposure at Low Doses and Low Dose Rates for Radiation Protection Purposes: Regulators' Edition).
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/may/28/who-nuclear-power-chernobyl?INTCMP=SRCH

This is important information in relation to the Fukushima disaster that involved the full meltdowns of three reactors. Radiation is an extreme hazard not to be taken lightly.

Government Ammunition Stockpiling Story Breaks Through Media Censorship and Goes Mainstream


In yet another stunning victory for the alternative media (InfoWars, Drudge Report, Natural News, WND, etc.), the story of the U.S. government stockpiling huge quantities of ammunition (1.6 billion rounds and counting) has finally broken through media censorship and gone mainstream.

Forbes.com contributor Ralph Benko recently wrote a piece calling for a “national conversation” on why the U.S. federal government would need to stockpile enough ammunition to wage a 20-year domestic war against the American people.

Remember, until this piece was published, the entire leftist media (NPR, MSNBC, CNN and countless leftist websites) all pretended these 1.6 billion bullets were imaginary and didn’t exist. It was all a grand “conspiracy theory,” we were told, and anyone who reported the truth on the government’s ammo purchases was labeled a fringe lunatic.

As it turned out, the leftist media was delusional, because the numbers don’t lie: The Department of Homeland Security really has purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, thousands of full-auto assault rifles, and thousands of armored assault vehicles — all for use inside the United States, on the streets of America.

State of Syria: Bloody Sectarian War Threat After 2 Years of Fighting


The bloody conflict in Syria has reached a third year - and yet some European nations want to pour more weapons into the crisis-torn country. EU Foreign Ministers will look at the possibility of lifting an arms embargo on Syria next week, after France and Britain made a major push to put more guns into the hands of anti-Assad forces. The civil war has already claimed an estimated 70 thousand lives. RT's Maria Finoshina has followed the nation's plight from the beginning.



Rather than moving slowly to democracy this outside push is destroying the country. The 'rebels' were armed and trained in Turkey from the outset. There would have been no war if there was no outside help.

Beware of the US blaming all their troubles on China. The source of many attacks are from the USA.

And if there is an economic collapse due to the rigged stock market and the bond market falling apart you will see the US trying to shift the buck - perhaps with false flag cyber attacks on their own computer systems.

How Your Taxes Are Actually Spent


Great video showing how over 50% of your tax goes straight to funding war. And while they pretend they don`t have enough to fund schools and hospitals, you know they are lying.

UK, France Vow to Arm Syrian Rebels Despite Embargo


The leaders of Britain and France claim they could well supply weapons to the Syrian rebels despite a UN embargo. Russia responded by saying any attempt to do so would be a breach of international law. RT contributor Afshin Rattansi believes it'll eventually backfire on western countries if they arm rebels in Syria.



Those in power in the France and the UK only want to get rid of Assad because he has supported Lebanon and the Palestinians. If they were concerned about humanity they would act against the oppressive dictatorships in Yemen and Bahrain.

The West through Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have already armed the Syrian rebels. The talk about directly arming them now, including the mercenaries that have poured into the country, denies the damage already done to the lives of the Syrian people. What we are seeing is the mechinations of proxy warfare for larger geopolitican interests - we see duped Islamists serving the interests of foreign powers.

There should be sanctions on the UK and France for their involvement in creating this conflict.

‘Iran Can’t Covertly Produce Atomic Bomb’ – US Intelligence Chief


Iran cannot produce enough highly-enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon without being found out by the international community, the US National Intelligence Director told Congress. He also countered claims Tehran had decided to build an atomic bomb.

Developments in Iran’s nuclear capabilities intended to “enhance its security, prestige, and regional influence” would ultimately “give the Islamic Republic the ability to develop a nuclear weapon,” US National Intelligence Director James Clapper told a Senate panel during an annual report on global threats on Tuesday.

Despite these advances, "we assess Iran could not divert safeguarded material and produce a weapon-worth of WGU (weapons-grade uranium) before this activity is discovered," he continued.

Clapper further said “we do not know if Iran will eventually decide to build nuclear weapons.”

His assessment reiterated last year’s analysis from intelligence agencies stating “Iran’s nuclear decision-making is guided by a cost-benefit approach” which had subsequently precluded efforts to build a bomb.

Keiser Report (E418): Banksters Smoke Bellybutton Lint


In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Wall Street clients who have no yachts and the American workers taking on second and third jobs. They also discuss the trillions in debt incurred just to keep the economy going nowhere. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics, about central bankers smoking their own belly button lint with Ben Bernanke behaving like an Easter Islander trying to rescue the past. Professor Keen says we need to get back to a capitalism where we borrow to build a factory not to build a derivative to rip someone off. And, finally, they discuss Keen's Kickstarter project called Minsky, reforming economics with visual monetary modeling.



Great info on the US unemployment figures among other things. This is also a really good episode to watch about the disconnect between the real economy and the stock market hype. Second half is a must see too.

Corrupt Arab League Support for Syria Militants


The Arab League has officially given the green light for the offering of military support to the foreign-backed militants fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.



Awesome George Galloway summation of the Syria crisis. Also features commentary on Hugo Chavez with callers exploring these topics in more detail. At least watch the first half that is 25 minutes.

WRH - Cyber False Flag Attack Warning


In response to US propaganda - Cyberwarriors in Tunisia and China have reportedly joined forces with al-Qaeda hackers in order to attack United States government websites - host of the whatreallyhappened.com website wrote the following excellent rebuttal:
I suspect what is being planned is a "virtual" 9-11; a 'terror' attack carried out in cyberspace, instead of the real world. I view this is highly likely based on the recent surge ofThe third and final option, and the one I am starting to think is the most likely, relates to the sudden flurry of media stories and statements by people like Joseph Lieberman about how Iranian hackers are attacking the US financial system computers. (Senator Lieberman has also been pressuring Obama to sign an executive order to take over the internet.) Of course, the common sense approach still applies. Why would Iran, which wishes to avoid a war, do something that provocative.

But we know that the US and Israel are behind the cyber-weapons like STUXNET, DUQU, FLAME, etc., that these cyber-weapons were directed against Iran, and that one variant specifically targeted banks in Lebanon and Iran. We also know that the US financial system is stretched to the breaking point, and we know that if the government of either Greece of Spain is driven from office by angry protests, credit default swaps sold by Wall Street against those debts come due, and there is no money to pay the claims. The Euro might even collapse, and that would trigger even more Credit Default Swaps. So the final option, one that strikes me as very likely, is that Israel will take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran. This also gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks over the last two weeks, to set the stage. And this would also explain why the US corporate media has paid scant attention to the riots in Spain and Greece so that Americans still dependent on ABCNNBBCBS will remain oblivious to the fact that the Euro is falling apart.

This scenario also explains the testing of means to interfere with DNS to silence websites that may offer opposing interpretations of events (this too will be blamed on Iran).

Such a cyber false-flag also gives the US Government the excuse to take total control of the internet so that those pesky truth-seeking bloggers don't give the slaves uppity ideas that this is just another war-starting hoax like the attack on the USS Liberty or 9-11.

Chasing the Dragon: 'China Will Overtake US as World's Largest Economy'


Beijing's been rapidly growing over the last two decades - at a speed which has brought it close to the traditionally major economies - including the US and even allowed it to surpass Europe's powerhouse, Germany. That's slowed down a bit recently but, China's still expected to overtake the US as the world's biggest economy in 2017. The economic rivalry comes amid the battle for influence in Asia between the two.



Great clip except that China has already passed the US as the world's biggest economy when you factor in reality. The US is only bigger thanks to the financial fraudsters on Wall Street and those making up the official US figures in Washington.

How can the US have a larger manufacturing base than China when all their Wall-Mart goods are produced over there? The answer is they don't. More cars are bought in China every year than in the US and more luxury cars are sold over there too (see second half of the show from 21:45):
