Russian Sappers Sweep Aleppo for Mines, Discovering Shells Made in US, Germany


The teams discovered and defused some 14,700 dangerous items, including 6,700 IEDs. The munitions discovered in stockpiles left behind by various armed groups ranged from small arms rounds and hand grenades all the way up to rockets meant for multiple-rocket launchers.

Footage of the ongoing demining operation released by the Russian Defense Ministry showed crates full of various munitions; some of them marked “Produced in Yugoslavia by Ordnance Corps United States Army.”

“The munitions we found were German, American, Bulgarian... The amount they had was somewhat disconcerting,” Maj. Ivan Gromov, a bomb disposal squad leader said.
The Russian military in Aleppo are assisting with restoring normal life in the city after four years of hostilities.

“Ignore Trump’s Tweets”: CNN Anchor Proves Exactly Why Trump Uses Twitter Instead of Press Conferences


A lot of people like to criticize President-Elect Donald Trump’s propensity to use Twitter, but he has a very valid reason for doing so.

He can’t get fair and reasonable coverage from the mainstream media. No matter what Trump does, it’s met with scathing headlines and mockery from the MSM. None of them can report in an unbiased fashion. (No real surprise there.) They don’t even try.

As well, during the election, the media blatantly did everything they could to keep Trump out of office, even going so far as to give Clinton questions in advance so she looked better and releasing fake polls showing that Trump was too far behind to ever catch up.

So, as a businessman who is used to solving problems, Trump has done an end-run around the MSM by using Twitter and starting his own YouTube channel. He hasn’t done a press conference since he was elected.

If CNN anchor Don Lemon had his way, there would be absolutely no news coverage of Trump’s tweets.

100% Of US Warming Is Due To NOAA Data Tampering


Climate Central just ran this piece, which the Washington Post picked up on. They claimed the US was “overwhelmingly hot” in 2016, and temperatures have risen 1,5°F since the 19th century.

The first problem with their analysis is that the US had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95°F, compared with the long term average of 4.9%. Climate Central is conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.

They also claim US temperatures rose 1.5°F since the 19th century, which is what NOAA shows.

The problem with the NOAA graph is that it is fake data. NOAA creates the warming trend by altering the data. The NOAA raw data shows no warming over the past century.

The adjustments being made are almost exactly 1.5°F, which is the claimed warming in the article.

The adjustments correlate almost perfectly with atmospheric CO2. NOAA is adjusting the data to match global warming theory. This is known as PBEM (Policy Based Evidence Making.)

The hockey stick of adjustments since 1970 is due almost entirely to NOAA fabricating missing station data. In 2016, more than 42% of their monthly station data was missing, so they simply made it up. This is easy to identify because they mark fabricated temperatures with an “E” in their database.

The Real Syria Story No One Wants You to Know About


On this episode of The Geopolitical Report, we counter the establishment’s narrative on the conflict in Syria and the flashpoint of Daraa, a town near the Syria-Jordan border where the CIA, working with the Muslim Brotherhood, attacked police and set the stage for a conflict that has so far claimed the lives of more than 400,000 Syrians. The proxy war is designed to take down a secular government and replace it with a Salafist principality controlled by the Brotherhood, a longtime CIA and British intelligence asset.



The truth about how the war started.

Syrian police and security forces were attacked by CIA supported "protesters" at the very beginning.

Why Netanyahu Remains Israel’s ‘Inciter-In-Chief’ - Jonathan Cook


An 18-year-old art student in Jerusalem discovered the hard way this month that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t care for irony.

For a class assignment, she took the famous Barack Obama “Hope” poster and changed the face to Mr Netanyahu’s, next to a noose, with the word “Rope” replacing “Hope”. The student wanted to portray the prime minister as a hangman, who extinguishes hope of peace with incitement and political repression.

The Israeli police and Mr Netanyahu, however, viewed the work not as a critique of incitement but as an example of it – with the noose intended for the prime minister. The student is now the subject of a well-publicised investigation.

As with most art, context is everything. For Israelis on the left, as well as Israel’s minority of Palestinian citizens, Mr Netanyahu is considered the king of incitement. And in recent weeks he has lived up to his reputation.

The background to the hangman image is Mr Netanyahu’s incitement against former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in the mid-1990s, as the latter tried to drum up support for the Oslo Accords. Footage of the period shows Mr Netanyahu addressing crowds holding aloft placards of Rabin in Nazi uniform. Months later a right-wing activist shot Rabin dead in the centre of Tel Aviv.

Mr Netanyahu’s current conduct has revived those memories, leading another former prime minister, Ehud Barak, to label him Israel’s “inciter-in-chief”.

Heading the list of targets has been the fifth of Israel’s population who are Palestinian. Mr Netanyahu lost no time in blaming them for the forest fires that raged across Israel last month. He and other ministers referred to an “arson intifada” and “pyro-terrorism”, though experts attributed the blazes to months of drought, high winds and a lack of preparedness.

Weeks later, no one has been charged with politically motivated arson. Nonetheless, Mr Netanyahu has not retracted his incendiary finger-pointing.

In the parliament, the prime minister has led a boycott of the Joint List, a coalition of Palestinian parties, after they refused to attend the funeral of former president Shimon Peres.

Faced with a court ruling to dismantle a tiny settlement outpost in the West Bank, Mr Netanyahu has announced a campaign of demolitions in Israel of homes belonging to Palestinians. He has accused the minority of rampant illegal building, glossing over the fact their communities have been denied master plans authorising construction.

And David Bitan, chairman of Mr Netanyahu’s Likud party, declared last month his hope that Palestinian citizens “won’t come to the polls at all” at the next election. He was expanding on the prime minister’s notorious election-eve warning last year that the minority was “coming out in droves” to vote. Notably, Mr Netanyahu has not rebuked Mr Bitan.

There is little doubt that such statements are influencing public opinion. A survey this month showed that just over half of Israeli Jews want Palestinian citizens stripped of the vote for questioning whether Israel can be both Jewish and democratic. A higher number, 59 per cent, object to Palestinian parties being included in the government.

Aside from rebel art students and Palestinian minority leaders, only a handful of institutions continue to criticise the government, even if meekly. They are in Mr Netanyahu’s sights too.

The government is threatening to overhaul the supreme court to rid it of “liberal” judges, and has conditioned arts funding on theatres touring the settlements. The Haaretz newspaper is, according to Mr Netanyahu’s office, peddling “Nazi propaganda”, while the broadcasting authority has been “captured by leftists”.

On Sunday, the government approved a “Facebook bill” to block any online content it deems incitement. Presumably Mr Netanyahu will be immune.

Another bill disqualifies Israeli human rights groups from eligibility for national service volunteers, after an earlier law suggested they are traitors for receiving overseas funding.

The education ministry has introduced new rules to deter schools from inviting speakers from human rights organisations. And an “ethics code” is being devised to police the political discourse of higher education staff.

All of this is designed to taint left-wing speech and activity as “treasonous”. The Israeli public has received the message loud and clear. The same poll this month found 71 per cent of Israeli Jews believe human rights groups harm Israel, while half consider those identifying with the left as a fifth column.

Perhaps none of this should surprise when Mr Netanyahu rushed to incite against the United Nations last week after the Security Council upheld international law, passing a resolution against Israel’s settlements. He described the resolution as “contemptible” and “anti-Israel”, and claimed President Obama had stabbed Israel in the back.

In similar vein on Monday, Mr Netanyahu’s defence minister accused France of anti-semitism and putting Israel on trial after it announced a summit next month to revive peace talks.

Mr Netanyahu is drawing his noose wide, not only for recalcitrant Israelis but for all those who stand in the way of his Greater Israel.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/why-netanyahu-remains-israels-inciter-in-chief/5565040

The big question concerning the recent UN resolution against Israel's illegal settlements is WHY did the US abstain, and why did those countries all vote yes rather than also abstain, considering that many of them are also captured by Israeli interests?

We know that US foreign policy is controlled by pro-Israeli neocons. The recent "falling out with President Obama" was a hoax. It didn't stop the US from increasing their monetary aid to the country.

So why did they betray their controller? Why is Kerry putting out truthful statements such as "Israel can be Jewish or democratic — not both"?

Truth telling such as this is causing a lot of damage to Israeli propaganda - perhaps too much to consider this some sort of ruse that will help the Israelis in the long run.

So far I have considered that this gambit might be:

1. Some kind of warning to the Israelis (also made via backroom channels) to cancel any planned false flag attacks.

2. that this is the ground work for false flag attacks where the Israelis will be "vindicated', and Palestinians blamed.

3. that this is some kind of rebellion against Israeli Middle East regime change policy that is flooding Europe with refugees, helped by Soros NGO work, and/or a reaction to the blatant Israeli-neocon encouraged CIA assassinations of Russian diplomats.

4. that this is aimed at placing Obama on the side of Muslim countries for when he leaves office - as a scam to help undermine them, while Trump's team will be expected to restore the status quo.

5. Perhaps elements of the Deep State, those within the circle of certain Special Access Programs, are sick of Israeli meddling, the leaking of information via their puppets (such as Hillary Clinton), and are encouraging this rebellion (although their role in this might be minor). The corruption might be deemed to be out of hand, that not the best people are now in positions of authority.

Who is Supporting ISIS-Daesh in Syria? Erdogan or Obama? - Michel Chossudovsky


In an unusual turn of events, Washington accuses Ankara of supporting the ISIS-Daesh.  

And Turkey’s president Erdogan responds by accusing Washington of supporting ISIS-Daesh. “Now they give support to terrorist groups including Daesh, YPG, PYD. It’s very clear. We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos.” said Erdogan.

And Washington responds “”he [Erdogan] continues to supply arms [into Syria] as well, with his ultimate aim [being] to go after the Kurds, and ISIS is secondary.”

While Washington has strongly denied Erdogan’s latest allegations, the structure of political and military alliances is in crisis.

Who is supporting the ISIS?  

The fact of the matter is that both the US and Turkey provide covert support to the terrorists including ISIS-Daesh and Jabhat Al Nusra.

Both Turkey and the US have collaborated in supporting the ISIS-Daesh in Northern Syria.
From the very outset, the Islamic State has been supported  (unofficially of course) by the broader US-NATO coalition which includes several NATO member countries (including the US, France, Britain as well as Turkey) and their Middle East allies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel.

What is of concern to Erdogan is that the US is ALSO supporting  the Kurdish separatists YPG forces which have been combating the ISIS. And until recently Turkey has used the ISIS rebels to combat YPG forces, which are also supported by the US.

From the outset in 2011, the recruitment of jihadist mercenaries to be deployed in Syria was coordinated by NATO and the Turkish High Command. In this regard, Turkey has played a central role in relation to logistics, weapons supplies, recruitment and training, in close liaison with Washington and Brussels.

The Ankara government has also played a strategic role in protecting the movement of jihadist rebels and supplies across its border into Northern Syria

What is now occurring is a rift in the structure of military alliances, through the emergence of “cross-cutting coalitions”.

Turkey as a NATO member state is an ally of the US. But the US is now supporting the YPG which is fighting both the ISIS and Turkey.

In turn, Turkey, which is a staunch ally of the US is negotiating with Russia and Iran.
Already in May 2016, Erdogan accused US-NATO of supporting YPG forces:
“The support they give [US, NATO] to… the YPG (militia)… I condemn it,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday during an airport ceremony in the Kurdish city of Diyarbakir. “Those who are our friends, who are with us in NATO… cannot, must not send their soldiers to Syria wearing YPG insignia.” (Ara News Network, May 28, 2016)
What is the underlying cause of this clash between the US and Turkey, which strikes at the very heart of the Atlantic Alliance?

Washington is firmly opposed to Erdogan’s territorial ambitions in Northern Syria. The US-NATO objective is to fragment both Syria and Iraq. Washington’s strategy in Northern Syria consists in supporting and controlling the Kurdish YPG separatists.

The latest National Defense Authorization Act signed into law by President Barack Obama is a "threat" to Russians in Syria, Moscow says, as the bill "openly stipulates the possibility" of delivering more weapons which might "soon" end in the hands of terrorists.

Washington's decision to supply weapons, including portable air defense missile systems, to militants in Syria "directly threatens the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces, other Russian military personnel and the Russian Embassy in Syria, which has been shelled more than once," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in a statement on Tuesday.

22 Medical Studies That Show Vaccines Can Cause Autism


Concerns regarding vaccinations continue to increase exponentially in light of all of the information and documentation that has surfaced over the past few years. As a result, corporate media has responded to alternative media, stating that the increase of persons who are choosing to opt out of vaccines and the recommended vaccine schedule is a result of ‘fear mongering.’

This may not be too surprising as the corporate media is owned by the major vaccine manufacturers, and the major vaccine manufacturers are owned by corporate media(1)(2)(3)(4). Given this fact, it’s easy to fathom the possibility that these institutions are desperately trying to protect the reputation of their product.

For example, if we take a look at GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, they are owned by the same financial institutions and groups that own Time Warner (CNN, HBO etc.) and General Electric (NBC, Comcast, Universal Pictures etc.).(1)(2)(3)(4) This is seen throughout all of the major vaccine manufacturers and all of the 6 corporations that control our mainstream media. Keep in mind that these are the major funders of all ‘medical research’ that’s used to administer drugs and vaccinations. Despite these connections, medical research and documentation exists to show that vaccines might indeed be a cause for concern.

Vaccines and Autism, Both Sides of The Coin

Here we will simply present information from both sides of the coin because many are not even aware that two sides exist. We’ve presented multiple studies, citing multiple research papers and published research conducted by doctors and universities from all across the world. Here is an example of a paper that describes how vaccine manufactures and medical ‘experts’ with drug industry connections have been aware of the multiple dangers associated with vaccinations for over 30 years. We’d also like to present medical research that indicates the many dangers associated with vaccines, and have done this on multiple occasions. We do this because the safety of vaccinations is commonly pushed by the mainstream media, without ever mentioning or citing the abundant medical research that should also be taken into consideration when discussing vaccinations. Please keep in mind that there is evidence on both sides. At the same time, some of the evidence on the side that negates a positive outlook on vaccination has been labelled fraudulent, but then again many haven’t.

The vaccine-autism debate has been going on for years. It has been a tale of shifting beliefs as child vaccination rates remain high. On February 1998, Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist and his colleagues published a paper that supposedly linked Autism to Vaccines(5). More specifically, he claimed that the MMR vaccine was responsible for intestinal inflammation that led to translocation of usually non-permeable peptides to the bloodstream and, subsequently, to the brain, where they affected development(5). His work was unpublished, and he lost his medical license despite the fact multiple studies seem to support Andrew Wakefield’s work (here is one example, and here is another.) He has been labelled a fraud by the mainstream medical world, some experts claim that his research and methods are weak and based on very little evidence. Dr Wakefield’s research will NOT be used in this article.

At the same time I must mention that multiple studies from around the world have concluded that there is no link between Autism and the MMR Vaccine(5). It can become quite confusing a subject given that we have multiple medical studies contradicting each other. Was Dr. Wakefield exposing something that the medical industry did not want you to know? It is known that vaccine manufacturers suppress harmful data regarding their product, as mentioned and illustrated earlier in the article. Regardless of the MMR vaccine and autism debate, there are still a number of studies that link vaccines to a possible autism connection. Please keep in mind that multiple courts worldwide have ruled in favour of vaccines causing autism, brain damage and other complications (6)(7), that include the MMR vaccine.

Here is a great video narrated by Rob Schneider outlining the vaccine-autsim link. Below that you will find a list of 22 medical studies that show possible connections to vaccines and autism. Please keep in mind that we’ve only presented 22 studies here, there are many more published papers that document the link. Hopefully this inspires you to further your research on the subject. Also keep in mind that Autism is only one of the multiple shown consequences of vaccine administration, as they have been linked to a number of other ailments.
http://www.activistpost.com/2013/09/22-medical-studies-that-show-vaccines.html

If you introduce toxins or hormonal/growth disruptors into the human body that impact brain development - especially when it comes to an infant or foetus - then logically you would assume such action could cause damage.

The issue with vaccines is that many of them appear to carry harmful toxins. The toxins are listed with the packaging.

The big issue is to have SAFE vaccines, as opposed to zero vaccines. And only ones that are necessary - to avoid the risk of physiological damage.

Mass Graves Discovered in Liberated Areas of Aleppo, Once Held by US Backed “Moderate Rebels”


Russian Defense Ministry has unearthed mass graves with dozens of bodies of civilians subjected to brutal torture in Aleppo neighborhoods that were under the control of Al Qaeda-ISIS militants, or the guys that the Obama White House prefers to brand as “moderate rebels.”

According to a statement by Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov…
“The completion of a uniquely large-scale humanitarian operation by the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Aleppo will destroy many of the myths that have been fed to the world by Western politicians.”
“The results of only an initial survey of Aleppo neighborhoods abandoned by the so-called ‘opposition’ will shock many.
Many of the corpses were found with missing body parts, and most had gunshot wounds to the head.
http://theduran.com/mass-graves-discovered-in-liberated-areas-of-aleppo-once-held-by-us-backed-moderate-rebels/

I suspect a lot of people have trouble seeing the harsh reality beyond the MSM projected propaganda.

The war is between sectarian gangs, consisting of many foreigners, supported by the west, against the recognised secular Syrian Government (albeit regime-like). It is a proxy war and people, including children, get killed. Civilian deaths are collateral to what is actually happening.

Growing Signs of State Foreknowledge of Attack on Berlin Christmas Market


On Friday night, Anis Amri was shot by police in Milan. There is growing evidence that the 24-year-old Tunisian drove the truck that killed twelve people on Monday and injured 50 at a Christmas market in Berlin. 

Investigators report that they found Amri’s ID papers, mobile phone and fingerprints inside the truck that was used in the horrific attack. The Islamic State press agency has published a video, probably recorded a few weeks ago, in which Amri swears allegiance to the organization and calls for “attacks on unbelievers”.

Amri may well have been responsible for the attack. However, the event itself remains obscure, and the extraordinary circumstances behind the attack raise many questions. It is now clear that security services were well aware that Amri was planning terrorist attacks. He had been in prison in Italy, was arrested in Germany and put under surveillance for months. Although the legal basis existed, the security and judicial authorities refused to detain him.

Morevoer, given the manner in which the event is being used to weaken the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel and shift German politics even further to the right, it would be a mistake not to consider the possibility that sections of the state were involved in some manner—if not in directing the attack, then in creating the conditions in which Amri was allowed to proceed.

Muslims have RIGHTS | ISLAM does NOT




Story thanks to Trump is Right.

If you can criticise aspects of mainstream Christian belief but you are not allowed to fairly criticise aspects of mainstream Islamic belief for fear of violence, then that is a huge problem. If saying something like "believing in any of the mainstream religions is irrational" causes violence from one group (Muslims), then that is a problem. If the threats of violence only come from radical groups then that is a lesser problem.

In places like Syria we find moderate multi-faith societies. However, if this is because of curtailed freedom of speech then such a society is not really compatible with open Western secular society.

LE PEN PROMISES TO TAKE FRANCE OUT OF EU & NATO


French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said that NATO exists only ‘to serve Washington’s objectives’, and that she planned to hold a Brexit-style referendum, in an interview with a Greek newspaper.

Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front and a candidate for the 2017 presidential elections, is known for her Euroscepticism and anti-immigrant views. Together with France, she also suggested that Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Greece and Cyprus should also leave the European Union.

“Frexit will be a part of my policy,” she said in an interview with Dimokratia. “The people must have the opportunity to vote for the liberation from slavery and blackmail imposed by technocrats in Brussels to return sovereignty to the country.”

Along with her main rival, the center-right Francois Fillon, Le Pen has called for closer ties with Russia and has criticized NATO expansion into eastern Europe. Le Pen said that she would take France out of the alliance if she became president because, as she said, its existence is no longer needed.

South Korea Comes a Step Closer to LIMITLESS Energy: Country's Fusion Reactor Sustains Plasma for More than a Minute in a New World Record


Engineers in South Korea have pushed the boundaries of nuclear fusion by setting a new record for maintaining plasma.

Plasma is one of the four states of matter - the others being liquid, gas and solid - with examples being lightning and the sun.

In a reactor at a national fusion facility, a team managed to keep superheated plasma in a steady state for more than a minute.

The new record marks another step towards nuclear fusion as a potentially limitless source of energy.

The institute, located in the city of Daejeon 160 km south of Seoul, is developing a tokamak-style reactor which aims to harness the energy of fusing atoms.

According to World Nuclear News, South Korea's National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI) achieved a world record for plasma operation.

Using the Korean Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) reactor, the team maintained superheated hydrogen gas in a magnetic field for 70 seconds - a fundamental step of the fusion process.

In a statement, the NFRI said: ‘The world record for high-performance plasma for more than a minute demonstrated that the KSTAR is the forefront in steady-state plasma operation technology in a superconducting device.’

‘This is a huge step forward for realisation of the fusion reactor.’

While other groups, such as the Tore Supra tokamak in France, have maintained fusion reactions for more than five minutes, the Korean team managed to sustain 'high performance' plasma, reducing the flux associated with the superheated state.

Nuclear fusion reactors works on the same principles as stars, by fusing atoms together to form heavier elements.

When the reactor is in full flow, it superheats ionised hydrogen gas to create plasma.

With the electrons stripped away, the atomic nuclei are then fused to generate energy.

“Ministry of Truth” Plus $611 Billion for the Military in 2017: Obama Quietly Signs the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” into Law


Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.

In a statement, Obama said that:
Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”
Much of the balance of Obama’s statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo’s continued operation and warned that “unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history,” Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.

But while the passage of the NDAA – and the funding of the US military – was hardly a surprise, the biggest news is what was buried deep inside the provisions of the Defense Authortization Act.

Recall that as we reported in early June“a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth had been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.

“Surprisingly,” Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”

Long before the “fake news” meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on such discredited mainstream portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.

In short, long before “fake news” became a major media topic, the US government was already planning its legally-backed crackdown on anything it would eventually label “fake news.”

Mike Rivero on Jesus


Yeshua in English is actually Joshua. The name "Jesus" is an artifact of translating Aramaic into Greek, and then from Greek into Latin. Joshua was heir to the House of David. His patriarchal lineage is given in the New Testament.

Contrary to the myth crafted at the Council of Nicaea, Joshua's family was quite rich. Joseph is described as a "Man of craft", meaning wise and educated, but this was mistranslated (probably deliberately) into "Carpenter" as the Romans were crafting Christianity to appeal to poor people. But the reality is that Joshua, as heir to the House of David, was well off, allowing him the luxury of education at the temple and travel to Egypt during the "missing" years.

Joshua's wife, Mary Magdalene, was a princess of the House of Benjamin, and their marriage was a dynastic pairing that gave Joshua a legitimate claim to the throne of Judea. His "ministry" was about undermining the power of both the Roman civil authority and the Sanhedrin, which had sided with Roman rule. Relying on the power of myths, Joshua staged events that "proved" he was the promised Messiah, then tried to seize the throne. He failed, and was crucified for treason against Rome.

But crucifixion takes a week, and Joshua was taken down from the cross still alive. The New Testament reports that Pilate wondered why Joshua "died" so quickly but was discouraged from asking questions by his wife, who may have been one of Joshua's many female supporters. Joshua fled to India where he taught a Christian-like religion and lived to a ripe old age. He is buried in Srinagar.

Meanwhile, Joshua's wife, Mary, fled to the Jewish enclave in the South of France, gave birth to their daughter Sarah, and continued the Christian church as Joshua had intended, which eventually gave rise to the Cathars. The family eventually intermarried with the Sicambrian Franks, giving rise to the Merovingian kings.

"NATO Chief Auditor in Charge of Terrorism Funding Murdered in Belgium"


Sibel Edmonds and Spiro Skouras are joined by Newsbud analyst and researcher Ali Sayed reporting from Belgium. Don’t miss this Newsbud Breaking News Alert on the highly suspicious death of a high ranking NATO official in Belgium. Yves Chandelon, Chief Auditor of the NATO, was found dead in the city of Andenne in the Belgian Ardennes. Glaring hard facts and evidences challenge the official’s attempt to cover-up the incident as ‘suicide.’ Join Newsbud team for all the evidences and details in the case that are being blacked out and censored in the US media.



The guy killed was an insider and would have had long term knowledge about western financing for terrorists. It's unlikely he was killed because he knew of such things. He might have been killed if he wanted to leak this information - to stop terror attacks in Europe?

Mainstream Media Admits Syrian “Rebels” Have Been Starving Civilians in Aleppo


The mainstream media has surprisingly admitted that it is, in fact, the rebels in Aleppo who have been starving the city’s civilian population.

According to Reuters, residents found a stockpile of food at an abandoned rebel depot so large the civilians stated they had not seen that much food in ages. As one civilian claimed: “[T]hey [the rebels] forbid us from everything. There is no milk, there is no cooking, there is no meat.”

The media previously made a point of letting the world know the rebels dismissed claims it was starving the civilian population, taking the rebel’s word for it on good faith.

The rebel group in question is called Jaish al-Islam (or the Army of Islam in English). This is the same rebel group that has been documented carrying out ISIS-inspired executions, is intent on establishing sharia law in Syria, and cooperates and conducts attacks regularly with al-Qaeda. The group’s former leader has gone on record to say he will cleanse the region of Shi’ites, Alawites, and Zoroastrians. The organization has also been heavily suspected of using chemical weapons and shelling civilians.

It is for these reasons that Secretary of State John Kerry classified them as a subgroup of al-Qaeda, going off-script in the process.

But we’re still at war with al-Qaeda, aren’t we?

Donors Want to Investigate How Hillary Spent $1.5 Billion in Campaign Donations


Clinton’s fallout is interestingly causing an internal revolution among Hillary’s big donors. At her New York bash to “thank” her big donors of $1 million or more, she took no blame and pointed the finger at Comey and Putin. Her spin did not work and she has lost a lot of credibility according to confidential sources. They were smart enough to realize that even if Russia “hacked” the DNC and Podesta emails, there would be no release if there had been no wrongdoing to begin with.

Now Clinton’s biggest backers want a “campaign autopsy,” which could expose Clinton’s entire operation. The donors are demanding to know where Clinton spent the near $1.5 billion in campaign resources she collected in the closing months. They want the receipts. They are demanding an honest investigation of how Clinton failed to read the mood in swing states and how her Brooklyn operation misread polling data.

The donors are not buying the Russian hack story. Putin isn’t the only explanation for her failure and they are now pointing the finger at Hillary. She never bothered to go to Wisconsin. The story running behind the curtain is that fundraisers are cutting off all donations to the Democratic Party until this honest review is carried out. They do not want to hear about Comey and Putin.

The Liberation of Aleppo: A Regional Turning Point. Setback for US-Led Aggression - Prof. Tim Anderson


In late 2016, at the cost of many young lives, Syrian forces took back the eastern part of the city of Aleppo, occupied by NATO and Saudi backed terrorists for more than four years.

The liberation of Aleppo, Syria’s second city and an ancient marvel, represents the most serious setback for the 15-year long Washington-led aggression on the entire region. An effective recolonisation of the region has stretched from Afghanistan to Libya, under a range of false pretexts. Invasions and proxy wars have been backed by economic sanctions and wild propaganda.

But this great war of aggression – called the creation of ‘New Middle East’ by former US President George W. Bush – has hit a rock in Syria. The massive proxy armies bought and equipped by Washington and its regional allies the Saudis, Turkey, Qatar and Israel, have been beaten back by a powerful regional alliance which supports the Syrian nation.

The endgame in Aleppo involves a handful of foreign agents – US, Saudi, Israeli and others – said to remain with the last al Qaeda groups in a tiny part of what was once their stronghold. The US in particular is keen to secure their release, because their presence is further evidence of the foreign command of what was claimed to be a ‘civil war’.

After a storm of western government and media misinformation (claims of massacres, mass executions and ‘civilians targeted’) over the evacuation of around 100,000 civilians and many thousands of terrorists, the UN Security Council authorised some ‘independent observers’ to monitor the process. However most of that evacuation is now over. Resettlement and reconstruction is already underway, and army reserves have been called up to defend the city.

Syrian, Iranian, Russian and independent reporters (including Maytham al Ashkar, Shadi Halwi, Asser Khatab, Khaled Alkhateb, Ali Musawi, Lizzie Phelan, Murad Gazdiev, Vanessa Beeley, Eva Bartlett and the late Mohsen Khazaei) have already told us quite a lot. What they said bore little resemblance to the western apocalyptic stories. For example, outgoing UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, a close ally of Washington, claimed in his last press conference that ‘Aleppo is now a synonym for hell’. Those claims were based on stories from NATO’s desperate jihadists.

Reporters on the ground told a different story. As Syrian forces smashed the al Qaeda lines, the trapped civilians streamed out. They published video of long lines of people leaving east Aleppo and finding relief, food and shelter with the Syrian Arab Army. Tired and relieved, they told their stories to anyone who cared to listen. Russia and Iran gave many tonnes of food, clothing, blanket and shelter aid. By contrast, western countries generally gave nothing and the terror groups rejected all aid from the Syrian alliance.

Civilians were prohibited from leaving the al Qaeda enclave, many were shot dead when they tried to do so. The armed gangs had food reserves but kept it for their fighters. Arms factories including toxic chemicals were found and were being made safe. Some of the armed men were taken into custody, but most were shipped out to Idlib, where Damascus has been concentrating the foreign-backed fighters.

When the hell canons fell silent, and no more home-made gas cylinder mortars landed in the heart of the city, there was elation and dancing in the streets, shown widely on social media. The US State Department spokesman claimed he had not seen this.

Al Qaeda in Aleppo was crushed. All the anti-Syrian government armed groups in Aleppo were either the ‘official’ al Qaeda in Syria (Jabhat al Nusra aka Jaysh Fateh al Sham) or deeply embedded associates. When the US pretended to suppress Jabhat al Nusra in 2012 and 2016, all the ‘Free Syrian Army’ groups protested, saying ‘we are all Jabhat al Nusra’. One might have thought that the US Government – which once claimed to be engaged in a global war against terrorism, in the name of 3,000 people murdered in New York back in September 2001 – would be as elated as those on the streets of Aleppo. They were not.

Much of the western media, reflecting their governments, solemnly reported on ‘the fall of Aleppo’. The Syrian victory over the al Qaeda groups was a great tragedy, they said. On the other hand, the near simultaneous recapture of Syria’s ancient city of Palmyra, by the eastern al Qaeda group ISIS, was reported differently. That city was said to have been ‘retaken’.

All this underlines what should have been an obvious point, admitted by many US officials, that every single armed group in Syria (whether ‘moderate’ or ‘extremist’) has been armed and financed by the US and its allies, in an attempt to overthrow the Syrian Government. All the talk about ‘moderate rebels’, a ‘brutal regime’ and a ‘civil war’ just tries to hide this.

The final evacuations of Aleppo – which included an exchange of civilians besieged for 20 months in the Idlib towns of Faoua and Kafraya for remaining NATO-jihadists in eastern Aleppo – were organised between Russia and Turkey. There was some serious sabotage of these agreements, but the understandings have so far stayed on track. Now Iran is engaged with Russia and Turkey, in three way talks. Practical matters are being discussed.

It is notable that the Obama administration is playing no direct constructive role in the endgame over Aleppo. Its ‘regime change’ proxy war on Syria is failing and, in its place, the incoming Washington regime promises a new approach. More importantly, a new regional alliance has formed to reject any new aggression from the colonial powers.

Many things have changed during the war on Syria. The Syrian alliance has beaten back powerful NATO-GCC forces. The Muslim Brotherhood and its patrons in Egypt, Qatar and Turkey have received another beating. Egypt and Iraq now support Syria. The Saudis have joined with Israel against Iran and Syria. Russia has built stronger bonds with Syria and Iran. The Arab League, having backed the destruction of two Arab states, seems all but dead. Will the new, enhanced ‘Axis of Resistance’ take its place?

Heavy Clashes Continue Between Ukrainian Army & Local Militia in Donbass Region


On December 18, units of the 54th Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, supported by artillery and armored vehicles, attacked positions of the LPR People’s Militia, located in 1.5 km to the north of Kalinovka village, on the outskirts of the so-called Enchanted Forest and neighboring heights of the village. The main strike targeted positions of the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Brigade of the 2nd Army Corps of the Republican forces. At the beginning, Ukrainian troops opened fire with automatic weapons of infantry combat vehicles, and then started to use mortars and artillery.

The situation was complicated by the fact that a few hours before the attack all the heavy military hardware (tanks, infantry fighting vehicles) of the 7th Brigade was diverted to training area, located in a few tens of kilometers away, in order to carry out military exercises. Soldiers of the 3rd Battalion met the enemy only with automatic weapons, machine guns and a limited amount of ammunition.

Alexander Tatarin, a soldier of the LPR People’s Militia, who was wounded on the first day, told the Luhansk Information Center (LIC) that nationalists and mercenaries were in the ranks of the attackers, who did not manage to advance.

The wounded soldier just may be ignorant or just does not tell that some LPR positions had to be left. It is known that Ukrainian troops managed to kick soldiers of the 3rd Battalion out from the Enchanted Forest and their positions on the heights of Kikimora, Krest and Zvezda. The information about the lost positions was confirmed by Igor Strelkov in an interview on the Komsomolskaya Pravda radio.

The Ukrainian side also confirmed its heavy losses in the area to the north of Debaltsevo. The headquarters of the Anti-Terrorist Operation Zone (ATO) reported about 6 killed soldiers. At the same time, according to representatives of the republican forces, no less than 10 Ukrainian fighters were killed, while they were trying to break through. The Kharkov Today news portal published an interview with a serviceman of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, who has a call sign ‘Nyama’. According to Nyama, 25 fighters of the 54th Brigade were killed, while 35 others were wounded during the battles near Debaltsevo. The losses of the LPR side are also serious. It is known about more than two dozen wounded soldiers. It is possible that there also are killed soldiers, but this information is closed.

There are conflicting accounts but it appears the LPR lost some territory. The US neocons will want to escalate this war in Ukraine before Trump takes office in order to deepen the split between Russia and the USA - in order to derail Trump's pending partnership with Putin.

Berlin Market Attack Suspect Killed in Milan Shootout


Anis Amri, a Tunisian national wanted throughout Europe after the truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin, was killed by the Italian Police during a shootout in Milan, the country’s interior minister has confirmed.



Dead men (patsies/assets) tell no tales. The fact that the suspect left his ID in the truck is highly suspicious.

From the information in the video, it's probable that this guy was an asset of the intelligence services - he was supporting jihadists in Syria. Perhaps someone within the services might have wanted to promote terrorism in Germany in order the bring down Merkel and her open borders immigration policy?

Whether or not this is a staged attack there is a strong likelihood of further (real) attacks. This is what you MUST expect with Western facilitation of regime change proxy wars in the Middle East, an open border, and a society that tolerates those who bring with them an intolerant ideology.

Model: Multiculturalism is Killing Germany


German model and journalist Anabel Schunke says she is afraid to walk the streets thanks to Angela Merkel's migrant influx.



The Germans are so tolerant that they won't defend themselves against criminals or ideologically driven oppressors.

Nearly 3,000 US Communities Have Lead Levels Higher Than Flint


A Reuters investigation this week uncovered nearly 3,000 different communities across the U.S. with lead levels higher than those found in Flint, Michigan, which has been the center of an ongoing water contamination crisis since 2014.

The investigation found that many of the hot-spots are receiving little attention or funding. Local healthcare advocates said they hope the reporting will spur action from influential community leaders.

All of the communities Reuters investigated had lead levels at least two times higher than Flint’s; more than 1,000 were four times higher. In most cases, the local data covered a 5- to 10-year period through 2015, the analysis states.

Areas affected by lead poisoning populate the map from Texas to Pennsylvania, reported Reuters‘ M.B. Pell and Joshua Schneyer. The available data charts 21 states that are home to about 61 percent of the U.S. population.

Despite the massive drop in lead poisoning rates since the 1970s—when heavy metals were phased out of paint and gasoline—many communities throughout the country are still at risk.

“The national mean doesn’t mean anything for a kid who lives in a place where the risks are much higher,” said Dr. Helen Egger, chair of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Child Study Center.

Like Flint, many of the communities are mired in “legacy lead,” Reuters reported—old industrial waste, crumbling paint, or corrosive pipes. But few have received help or attention.

Contamination in children can cause cognitive difficulties, which in turn can lead to low school performance, few job opportunities, and trouble with the law. That cycle was examined last year when 25-year-old Baltimore resident Freddie Gray died after his spine was severed in police custody. Amid protests against brutality and racism, many noted that Gray experienced lead poisoning as a child while living in an area with persistently high exposure levels.

But the problem is nationwide and affects a vast spectrum of communities, Reuters writes. Milwaukee, Wisconsin still has “135,000 prewar dwellings with lead paint, and 70,000 with lead water service lines,” and $50 million has already been spent to protect the city’s children. Many families do not have the funds to make the repairs themselves, and laws requiring owners to remove lead from their properties are not consistent state by state.

As the Coup Against Trump Fails, the Threat Against His Life Rises — Paul Craig Roberts


The use of the presstitute media to deny Trump the Republican presidential nomination failed.

The use of the presstitute media to deny Trump victory in the presidential election failed.

The vote recount failed.

The effort to sway the Electoral College failed.

But the effort continues.

The CIA report on Russia’s alleged interference in the US presidential election ordered by Obama is in process. Faked evidence is a hallmark of CIA operations.

In their determination to seal Trump’s ears against environmental concerns, a group of environmentalists plan to disrupt the inauguration. This in itself is of little consequence, but chaos presents opportunity for assassination.

Trump himself seems to think he is in danger. According to MSNBC, Trump intends to supplement his Secret Service protection with private security. As there is evidence of CIA complicity in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (film shows Secret Service agents ordered away from JFK’s limo immediately prior to his assassination), Trump, who is clearly seen as a threat by the military/security complex, is not being paranoid. MSNBC implies that Trump’s private security is to suppress protesters, as if government security forces have shown any compunction about suppressing protesters. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc-news/watch/will-trump-use-private-security-as-president-837040707540

This provides an indication of the threat that the CIA sees in Trump: http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/donald-trump-will-ruthlessly-decimate-cia-turning-against-him/ri18205

Global Research’s Michel Chossudovsky has explained that Trump’s peaceful approach to Russia aligns him with oligarchs, whose wealth benefits from business deals with Russia, and puts Trump at odds with the military/security oligarchs, who benefit from the one trillion dollar annual military/security budget. The latter group have been in control since President Eisenhower warned us about them and can muster deep state forces against a Trump presidency.

To take on a group like this requires a tough SOB. Anything less than Trump wouldn’t have a chance. Indeed, if Douglas Valentine’s just published book, The CIA As Organized Crime (Clarity Press, 2017) is even half true, Trump’s life is certainly at risk.

Donald Trump is clearly no saint. Given what we are up against—dangerous tensions between nuclear powers and the military/security complex’s stake in these tensions—a saint is not what the situation calls for.

The military/security complex has been entrenched since NATO’s formation on April 4, 1949, a provocation that preceded by six years the formation of the Warsaw Pact on May 14, 1955. Any president willing to confront this entrenched deep state superpower deserves the support of all of us.

Suicide Bombings and Islam: An Apologist's Guide - Sargon


Have the urge to say "suicide bombings have nothing to do with Islam"? Then this video is for you.



There appear to be two main issues. One is the salafists who are willing to commit acts of terror and murder against heretics, which includes other Muslims, and two, that Muslims of all sorts can find justification for these acts taken directly from religious texts - that they are acting justly in defence of their ideology.

In war, when the situation becomes desperate, or perceived to be so, these acts, that include suicide attacks, will be employed regardless of ideology. The Japanese employed suicide strategies and heinous acts of barbarism during World War 2 and they were not Muslim.

Before there was wholesale warfare in the Middle East, we did not see these sorts of suicide attacks. In Saddam's Iraq such acts didn't happen. Before the Israelis oppressed the Palestinians these attacks didn't happen.

Religious societies can and do function without resorting to terror strategies. There are plenty of moderate Sunnis fighting in the Syrian Army that are not religious fanatics and just want a normal life, but are faced with extremists who want tyranny.
