Lawsuits Against the Neocons: Hillary's DNC, George W. Bush Et Al

The neocon war hawks have embroiled the United States in illegal wars of aggression around the globe, and with the possibility of a Clinton presidency, that reign of terror looks set to continue. But a series of lawsuits are challenging the neocons in the courts and threatening to derail that agenda. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV.

Washington Tries to Break BRICS – Rape of Brazil Begins

Washington’s regime change machinery has for the time being succeeded in removing an important link in the alliance of large emerging nations by railroading through a Senate impeachment of the duly elected President, Dilma Rousseff. On August 31 her Vice President Michel Temer was sworn in as President. In his first speech as president, the cynical Temer called for a government of “national salvation,” asking for the trust of the Brazilian people. He indicated plans to reform, and has also signaled his intention to overhaul the pension system and labor laws, and cut public spending, all themes beloved of Wall Street banks, of the International Monetary Fund and their Washington Consensus. Now after less than three weeks at the job, Temer has unveiled plans for wholesale privatization of Brazil’s crown jewels, starting with oil. The planned Wall Street rape of Brazil is about to begin.

It’s important to keep in mind that elected President Rousseff was not convicted or even formally charged with any concrete act of corruption, even though the pro-oligarchy mainstream Brazil media, led by O’Globo Group of the billionaire Roberto Irineu Marinho, ran a media defamation campaign creating the basis to railroad Rousseff into formal impeachment before the Senate. The shift took place after the opposition PMDB party of Temer on March 29 broke their coalition with Rousseff’s Workers’ Party, as accusations of Petrobras-linked corruption were made against Rousseff and former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

On August 31, 61 Senators voted to remove her while 20 voted against removal. The formal charge was “manipulation of the state budget” before the 2014 elections to hide the size of the deficit. She vehemently denies the charge. Indeed, the Senate issued its own expert report that concluded there was “no indication of direct or indirect action by Dilma” in any illegal budgetary maneuvers. According to the Associated Press, “Independent auditors hired by Brazil’s Senate said in a report released Monday that suspended President Dilma Rousseff didn’t engage in the creative accounting she was charged with at her impeachment trial.” Under an honest system that would have ended the impeachment then and there. Not in Brazil.

In effect, she was impeached for the dramatic decline in the Brazilian economy, a decline deliberately pushed along as US credit rating agencies downgraded Brazilian debt, and international and mainstream Brazilian media kept the Petrobras corruption allegations in the spotlight. Importantly, the Senate did not ban her from office for 8 years as Washington had hoped, and she has promised an electoral return. The Washington-steered Temer has until end of 2018 to deliver Brazil to Temer’s foreign masters before his term legally ends.

Notably, Temer himself was accused of corruption in the Petrobras state oil company investigations. He reportedly asked the then-head of the transportation unit of Petróleo Brasileiro SA in 2012 to arrange illegal campaign contributions to Temer’s party which was running a Washington-backed campaign to oust Rousseff’s Workers’ Party. Then this June, only days into his serving as acting president, two of Temer’s own chosen ministers, including the Minister of Transparency, were forced to resign in response to allegations that they sought to subvert the probe into massive graft at Petrobras.

One of the two, Temer’s extremely close ally Romero Jucá, was caught on tape plotting Dilma’s impeachment as a way to shut down the ongoing Petrobras corruption investigation, as well as indicating that Brazil’s military, the media, and the courts were all participants in the impeachment plotting.

In brief, the removal of Dilma Rousseff and her Workers’ Party after 13 years in Brazil’s leadership was a new form of Color Revolution from Washington, one we might call a judicial coup by corrupt judges and congressmen. Of the 594 members of the Congress, as the Toronto Globe and Mail reported, “318 are under investigation or face charges” while their target, President Rousseff, “herself faces no allegation of financial impropriety.”

'Americans Know Their Weapons Will End Up in Hands of Terrorists' - Al-Nusra Commander Interviewer

US weapons are being delivered to Al-Nusra Front by governments that Washington supports, a militant commander has told German media. RT discusses the interview with Jürgen Todenhöfer, the journalist who spoke to the Al-Nusra commander.

The Al Nusra commander stated that the US, Saudis and Israelis have trained extremists to fight against the Syrian Government - something the journalist Todenhöfer underlines when he says Western support for terrorist groups is well understood by those closely following the conflict.

The Proxy War in Syria is a War Crime. We require a criminal investigation into those sponsoring the illegal war in order to stop the bloodbath. Arresting the head of the CIA would be a good first move.

'Just Wait…' Islamic State Reveals it Has Smuggled THOUSANDS of Extremists into Europe

The Syrian operative claimed more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into western nations – hidden amongst innocent refugees.

The ISIS smuggler, who is in his thirties and is described as having a trimmed jet-black beard, revealed the ongoing clandestine operation is a complete success.

"Just wait," he smiled.

The Islamic State operative spoke exclusively to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity and is believed to be the first to confirm plans to infiltrate western countries.

Islamic State, also referred to as IS and ISIS, is believed to be actively smuggling deadly gunmen across the sparsely-guarded 565-mile Turkish border and on to richer European nations, he revealed.

They are following the well-trodden route taken by refugees and migrants fleeing, travelling across the border of Turkey then on boats across to Greece and through Europe.

There are now more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen "ready" across the European Union, he claimed.
The operative said the undercover infiltration was the beginning of a larger plot to carry out revenge attacks in the West in retaliation for the US-led coalition airstrikes.

He said: "If someone attacks me then for sure I will attack them back."

Islamic State extremists are taking advantage of developed nations' generosity towards refugees to infiltrate Europe, he said.

Uncontrolled immigration is a bad idea, just as Western support for opposition (extremist) forces in Syria and Libya. The West has brought this situation upon itself.

Unfortunately the general population is largely unaware of what is happening in terms of State support for terrorists and have bought into 'feel good' refugee memes whilst almost completely ignoring security concerns.

Only when thousands of Europeans are gunned down or blown up, or sniped, by ISIS insurgents operating in Europe will they realise they need to pay more attention to world events and the role of their Governments in such affairs.

Data Shows No Aerial Objects Approached MH17 from the East - Russian MoD

There are new details on the fate of the MH17 passenger jet accident, after Russia's Defence Ministry released radar data from the day of 2014 tragedy in Eastern Ukraine. According to the military, there's no evidence of a missile being fired at the plane from the territory controlled by anti-government forces.

This radar data is curious since it does not reveal evidence of a missile, where we have physical evidence from the crash site that shows the aircraft was hit by fragments from an explosive warhead.

The headline points out that no aerial objects approached the aircraft from the east. However, it says nothing about aerial objects approaching from other directions.

It is odd that there also no indications of other aircraft on this recording since multiple witnesses at the crash site reported seeing 'military jets' shortly after the wreckage came down - as reported by BBC Russia and denied by the Ukrainian Government.

A previous post on this site fully explored the evidence and concluded that the most likely scenario was that MH17 was shot down by an air-to-air missile:

Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton | Presidential Debate Analysis - Stefan Molyneux

On September 26th, 2016, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton participated in the first Presidential debate between the Republican and Democratic candidates - moderated by Lester Holt.

You many not agree with every single point raised by Molyneux but the vast majority of what is raised in this discussion is accurate. People have pointed out that the moderator asked Trump for details, and did not ask the same of Hillary ...

It is undeniably true that almost all the negative accusations made against Trump are false.

The clip above mentions the series The Untruth About Trump and his opposition to the Iraq War. The beginning of the following 'Untruth Video' features his interview on the Howard Stern Show where he does NOT give a rousing endorsement of attacking Iraq on the first anniversary of 911. He never endorsed attacking Iraq before the invasion, and even said publicly that the US economy was more important than attacking Iraq. Privately, Trump was against the war - according to Hannity - but, as a public figure, saying so too robustly in the climate after 911 would have likely jeopardised his business dealings. However, right after the invasion occurred he came out strongly against it, even when the war was still relatively popular:

Lavrov Makes History: “Ceasefires” were Bogus. Accuses Washington of Flagrant Violations and Support of ISIS-Al Qaeda

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov made history today at the UN’s meeting of the Security Council, declaring that future unilateral pauses couched as ‘ceasefire agreements’ are off the table. He has skillfully referred to the mounting factual evidence of the US’s continued flagrant violations on any number of points of agreement over the course of this conflict.

These include primarily the violations of the ceasefire itself, in conjunction with officially leaked elements of the ‘secret text’ of the recent ceasefire which evidence that the US has been unable to reign in a number of groups signing onto previous ceasefires, let alone those groups the US claims to be moderates but did not sign onto the ceasefire, both of which continue to work closely with either ISIS or Jabat Al-Nusra. Russia has no doubt pointed out successfully that several of these groups are fictional entities, and are but operational synonyms of Al-Nusra (formerly called Al-Qaeda of the Levant), itself.

The impossible to ignore context here naturally is the ceasefire ending US joint attack alongside ISIS upon the Syrian Arab Army position at Deir ez-Zor which was sustained and lasted over an hour, despite calls from the Russian coordinating hotline which existed pursuant to standing agreements on deconfliction.

The other defining circumstances included the response of the US State Department at the emergency session of the UN Security Council a few nights ago, in particular the behaviour and callously undiplomatic remarks of representative Power, and the US’s following attempts to blame Russia for the attack on the Red Crescent aid convoy several days later, which increasingly appears as the result of either Al-Nusra militants on the ground or a US predator drone attack using an incendiary device.

Analysts and activists have long debated the utility of the ceasefire agreements. It had been noted, at times passionately, that the ceasefires were observed unilaterally by Russia and had the effect of allowing the US backed terrorist groups, whether organized under the ‘moderate’ banner or not, to rearm and regroup. Aid convoys had long been used as a backdoor to smuggle in needed dual-use basic supplies for repairing weapons, such as nuts, bolts, wiring – and even munitions and new weapons. It had long been documented that first aid and medicines intended for affected civilian populations generally wound up used by terrorist fighting groups inside of occupied parts of Aleppo.

Now this chapter comes to end, and it is revealed that Russia understood clearly all along that this was precisely the case. What was needed was a pretext, a consensus building show-and-tell to the Security Council which provides Russia and its allies on the Security Council and in the international community that ‘we tried Ceasefires – and this is what happened.

Trump vs Hillary Neocon Clinton Debate Breakdown: Part 1 [Updated]

Good overall analysis.

One point about a minimum wage. Many countries have it, and it hasn't crushed job creation, otherwise this is a great deconstruction of the spin pushed by Hillary. He does also criticise Trump, but the real danger to wealth and peace comes from Hillary Clinton.

[Update] Many people do not fully understand why the US economy imploded and then failed to recover - it was mainly due to jobs outsourcing, combined with the housing bubble. Trump is correct with his approach to solving the lack of employment within US borders. It is wise to consider what economist Paul Craig Roberts has said when it comes to outsourcing:

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts discusses the decline of US economy

Note that the retention of internal productive activity, within national borders, is vital to creating and sustaining jobs. Profiteering, via outsourcing, only benefits a few. It is one thing to have cheap imported goods and another to have very few well paying jobs (or not enough jobs for the general population, ie high unemployment).

Propaganda Games: Sesame Credit - The True Danger of Gamification - Extra Credits

China has gamified being an obedient citizen with the creation of Sesame Credit. The game links to your social network and gives you a score for doing things that the government approves of, but it also reduces that score for doing things the government disapproves of. Even your friends' scores affect your own, and being friends with people who have a low score will drag your score down as well. This insidious system applies social pressure on people to ostracize their friends with lower scores, either forcing those friends to change their ways or effectively quarantining their rebellious ideas. While many sci-fi visions of a dystopian future have centered around a bleak government that controls through fear, Sesame Credit shows us that a government can use gamification and positive reinforcement to be just as controlling. And it's real. While currently the system is opt-in, the government plans to make it mandatory in 2020. Once mandatory, it may give rewards for good scores or penalties for bad ones. And in the meantime, making it opt-in has already set the tone for the game: people participate willingly, so they find it fun, and they set a very high standard for what the "average" score should be. Already people have begun sharing their scores on social media.

West Still Arming Al-Nusra in Syria, Peace Almost Impossible – Russia’s UN envoy

An emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria has wrapped up in New York. It was requested by the United States, Britain and France amid the escalating conflict in the city of Aleppo. The meeting saw a heated exchange between the Russian and American envoys.

Western coverage of the war in Syria omit the actions of the extremist forces that are in control of East Aleppo. They are actively shelling Government areas. In response the Syrian Army is trying to destroy them. There is not an "indiscriminate attack" by the Syrian Government side against civilians as portrayed in the corporate mainstream media.

Furthermore, the Syrian Army offered surrender terms and safe passage out of the conflict zone for the militants operating in East Aleppo, which was refused.

Plus consider the conservative (non-conspiracy) Wikipedia page on the Battle of Aleppo. It names the opposition belligerents as the Free Syrian Army, and then lists all the other main groups which consist of extremists, who happen to work with the FSA (that the US openly supports).

The truth of the war is all about us, except that the mainstream western media appears deaf and blind to what is actually happening - strongly suggesting that 'our' media (at various levels) is operating as a propaganda tool for the criminal Governments supporting the terrorist forces.

Answers for Libertarians - Sargon

Responded to the questions of some of my favourite YouTubers on the topic of Libertarianism

I'm sympathetic to Sargon's views here. We need freedoms but some level of regulation* to protect people from levels of harm dealt by others, including oppressing one's right to be heard. This is what the US Constitution is about. There are prohibitions on murder, committing fraud, stopping people from exercising their right to free speech and punishment for violating such Laws.

The founding fathers of the US Constitution warned that vigilance (plus education) was needed to stop corrupt Governments and that regular revolution or revolt was a good thing, to protect people's freedoms. 'Good' Government, albeit somewhat flawed, is needed to keep a level of order and oversight to allow people to go about their private business (including to compete on a relatively level playing field - that makes for efficient allocation of capital within that frame work). The initial 'contract' for business operations was aimed at fair trade, not unrestricted (monopolistic, racketeering) 'free' trade.

The Government system we experience at the moment is corrupt where big money has destroyed the 'public interest' aspect and skewed things toward the rich and powerful so that there are 'two Americas'. There is abundant 'justice' for the rich but not for the poor.

To fix the system one needs a revolt and a reshaping to decentralise power as much as possible, and to make such Governments as transparent as possible where EVERYTHING is recorded, where the Government pay is equal to the minimum wage (or made very low), where those in office are banned from working for any corporation they dealt with, and where there is increased (direct) accountability. The Swiss people get to direct vote on important issues - so that must be considered an option.

What is essential is that EXISTING US LAW be ENFORCED for everyone, no matter who the person. If the President does it, it does not make it legal.

*Note, there is a problem with overregulation in various parts of the US.

*Second note on guns - where poverty and crime is out of control, where the criminals have guns, the best method of defence is to allow every citizen to possess guns (because clearly the police and state cannot protect you). Where there is affluence and no violent crime, having guns should not be an issue, except when it comes to accidental killings.

*Third note on state power from Thomas Jefferson - "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

"Sometimes Party Loyalty Asks Too Much" - Lifelong Establishment Democrat Urges Voters To Support Trump

I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Herbert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.

My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy were (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.

I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.

With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.

Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump for president. I urge my fellow Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump.

I have known him since the early 1970s and have seen his deep concern for people, and how effective he has been while working on behalf of the average citizen.

Donald Trump is no racist. On the contrary, he offers the best hope for rebuilding our inner cities and creating better education and jobs for those trapped in poverty and lacking hope. When a hurricane devastated Puerto Rico in 1984, I asked Mr. Trump to provide a 727 airliner to bring critical supplies to the island. He did so and without publicity. I asked him to rebuild the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park because the city couldn’t complete it in 10 years. Mr. Trump did it in under six months and under budget.

While he has made some controversial and provocative statements, I strongly believe he will bring needed change and vitality to our nation and shake up our political system, which is in a state of crisis.

The fall off of tourism is having a big impact on the already weak French economy where Jovanovic points out the impact of terrorism. However, there is also the fact that Paris is awash with unemployed migrants that discourages tourism. The situation will not get much better because there is not an abundance of low skilled jobs. Furthermore the French welfare state encourages these people to stay where they are rather than returning to their countries of origin (putting a burden on the national budget).

John Kerry Urges Russia and Syria to Stop Attacking Al-Qaeda

No wonder the United States insisted that its Syria ceasefire deal with Russia remain secret! It turns out that one of the US demands was that the Syrian air force must be prohibited from attacking al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria).

Does this make any sense? It seem much more logical to argue that the threat of being bombed alongside al-Qaeda would be the greatest incentive for “moderates” to separate themselves from al-Qaeda as soon as possible!

You would think Washington would tell its “moderates”: “You must cease and desist from fighting alongside al-Qaeda in Syria within the next 48 hours or you will yourselves become targets of Syrian, Russian, and coalition planes.”

Instead Washington argues that because its “moderates” refuse to separate from al-Qaeda the Russians and Syrians must stop attacking al-Qaeda!

George W. Bush famously said, “either you’re with us, or you are with the terrorists.” But what happens when Washington itself is “with the terrorists”?

Still Report #1209 – Trump Has Turned Republicans Away From “Free Trade”

According to today’s Politico:
“Harvard poll: Amid Trump’s rise, GOP voters turn sharply away from free trade. Eighty-five percent of Republicans say that free trade has cost more jobs than it has created, the survey found.”
Here’s our interpretation. Donald Trump has already brought so much good to America from the issues he has popularized during his campaign, that it would take the rest of this report just to list them all. But the truth about trade and tariffs and the growth of domestic manufacturing is one of the most important. Why? Because the tortured notion that free trade is a good thing has now finally been punctured. As I’ve said many times in these reports; “free trade is really slave trade.”

America’s Rivers and Streams are Overflowing with Microplastic Pollution

For years, cosmetic, toothpaste, and body care product manufacturers added “microbeads,” microscopic balls of plastic, to their merchandise, touting their skin-exfoliating effects. A Congressional ban that goes into effect beginning in 2017 will put an end to the environmentally toxic practice, at least in the US.
Researchers studying America’s waterways have now discovered microbeads may be the tip of the iceberg for plastic pollution.
A study published in Environmental Science & Technology on Sept. 14 found rivers and streams in the US are full of microplastic debris. Scientists studied 29 tributaries that flow into the Great Lakes across six states and floating microplastics were found in all 107 samples collected. The trash ranged from fragments, films, foams, and pellets (most prevalent in urban areas) to tiny fibers, potentially originating from fishing line, nets, and synthetic textiles.
Plastic objects (styrofoam, plastic bags, bottles, wrappers, cigarette butts, tires) degrade over time, breaking into microscope plastic debris that runs off into the waterstream. Wastewater treatment plants capture heavier polyester fibers before they enter waterways like rivers and lake (though these fibers may make their way back into the water once treated sewage sludge from plants is applied to fields and golf courses). But the plants do not eliminate most microplastics. This pollution presents a danger to marine life by obstructing an animal’s digestive system, interfering with reproduction, and carrying harmful chemicals that can stymie development or even kill water-dwelling creatures.
The problem is worsening. Microplastic concentrations in lakes and rivers now rival or exceed what’s been found in oceanic gyres, such as the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch, say the authors.
The human and ecological health implications of microplastics are still poorly understood, but scientists see a “plasticized” food chain as cause for concern. New Jersey’s science advisory board issued a 2015 study (pdf) that found the human impact of microplastics (and even smaller particles below 100 nanometers in size) couldn’t be fully assessed, but current science suggests “it is plausible that human exposures are occurring, and may lead to adverse health effects.” A 2015 study in Nature found that roughly a quarter of marine fish from markets in Indonesia and California had plastic debris and textile fibers in their guts.

British Parliament Confirms Libya War Was Based On Lies … Turned Nation Into a “Shit Show” … Spread Terrorism

The UK Parliament just confirmed what the alternative media has been saying for years.

Specifically, a new report from the bipartisan House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee – based on interviews with all of the key British decision-makers, review of documents, and on-the-ground investigations in Africa – found that the Libyan war was based on lies, that it destroyed the country, and that it spread terrorism far and wide.

The War Based On Bogus Intelligence … Like the Iraq War

Initially, the report finds that the threat to civilians from Libyan  government forces was dramatically overstated:
Former French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé, who introduced Resolution 1973 [imposing a no-fly zone over Libya, and laying the groundwork for overthrowing the government], asserted in his speech to the Security Council that “the situation on the ground is more alarming than ever, marked by the violent re-conquest of cities”. He stressed the urgency of the situation, arguing that “We have very little time left—perhaps only a matter of hours.” Subsequent analysis suggested that the immediate threat to civilians was being publicly overstated and that the reconquest of cities had not resulted in mass civilian casualties.
The proposition that Muammar Gaddafi would have ordered the massacre of civilians in Benghazi  [which was the basis for the West’s war to overthrow Gaddafi] was not supported by the available evidence. The Gaddafi regime had retaken towns from the rebels without attacking civilians in early February 2011 …. Gaddafi regime forces targeted male combatants in a civil war and did not indiscriminately attack civilians. More widely, Muammar Gaddafi’s 40-year record of appalling human rights abuses did not include large-scale attacks on Libyan civilians.

On 17 March 2011, Muammar Gaddafi announced to the rebels in Benghazi, “Throw away your weapons, exactly like your brothers in Ajdabiya and other places did. They laid down their arms and they are safe. We never pursued them at all.” Subsequent investigation revealed that when Gaddafi regime forces retook Ajdabiya in February 2011, they did not attack civilians. Muammar Gaddafi also attempted to appease protesters in Benghazi with an offer of development aid before finally deploying troops.
An Amnesty International investigation in June 2011 could not corroborate allegations of mass human rights violations by Gaddafi regime troops. However, it uncovered evidence that rebels in Benghazi made false claims and manufactured evidence. The investigation concluded that
much Western media coverage has from the outset presented a very one-sided view of the logic of events, portraying the protest movement as entirely peaceful and repeatedly suggesting that the regime’s security forces were unaccountably massacring unarmed demonstrators who presented no security challenge.
In short, the scale of the threat to civilians was presented with unjustified certainty. US intelligence officials reportedly described the intervention as “an intelligence-light decision”.
Just like the ginned up intelligence used to justify the Iraq war. And the “humanitarian wars” waged over the last couple of decades.

The Libyan Government Was Fighting Terrorists

The report also notes that the Libyan government really was – as Libyan dictator Gaddafi claimed at the time – fighting Islamic terrorists:
Intelligence on the extent to which extremist militant Islamist elements were involved in the anti-Gaddafi rebellion was inadequate.
Abdelhakim Belhadj and other members of the al-Qaeda affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group were participating in the rebellion in March 2011.
Secret intelligence reports from 2011, written before and during the illegal US-led attack on Libya and recently obtained by the Washington Times, state:
There is a close link between al Qaeda, Jihadi organizations, and the opposition in Libya…
Indeed, the Libyan rebel commander admitted at the time that his fighters had links to Al Qaeda.  And see this.

The West and Its Allies Directly Supported and Armed the Rebels

The UK report confirms that the West and its allies directly supported and armed the rebels:
The combat performance of rebel ground forces was enhanced by personnel and intelligence provided by states such as the UK, France, Turkey, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. For example, Lord Richards told us that the UK “had a few people embedded” with the rebel forces.
Resolution 1973 called on United Nations member states to ensure the “strict implementation of the arms embargo”. However, we were told that the international community turned a blind eye to the supply of weapons to the rebels. Lord Richards highlighted “the degree to which the Emiratis and the Qataris … played a major role in the success of the ground operation.” For example, Qatar supplied French Milan anti­tank missiles to certain rebel groups. We were told that Qatar channelled its weapons to favoured militias rather than to the rebels as a whole.

The REAL Motivation for War

The real motivation for the war?  The Parliamentary report explains:
A further insight into French motivations was provided in a freedom of information disclosure by the United States State Department in December 2015. On 2 April 2011, Sidney Blumenthal, adviser and unofficial intelligence analyst to the then United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, reported this conversation with French intelligence officers to the Secretary of State: 
According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues:
  1. A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,
  2. Increase French influence in North Africa,
  3. Improve his internal political situation in France,
  4. Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,
  5. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa.
The sum of four of the five factors identified by Sidney Blumenthal equated to the French national interest. The fifth factor was President Sarkozy’s political self-interest.

Gaddafi Tried to Step Down … But the West Insisted On Violent Regime Change

Gaddafi had offered to hand over power, but the West instead wanted violent regime change. (The British report notes: “By the summer of 2011, the limited intervention to protect civilians had drifted into an opportunist policy of regime change.”)

The Parliamentary report notes that Gaddaffi may have been attempting to flee the country when he was killed

The analysis in the second video is very good because it also addresses the recent claims that an airstrike killed Israeli, Saudi, US and Turkish intelligence officers based in Syria. They point out that there is no evidence for this incident and that it comes from the FARS news agency which I know has previously published dubious stories covering the war.

Lavrov Rejects Claims that Aid Convoy was Hit by Syrian Air Force

The humanitarian convoy in Aleppo could not have been hit by Syria’s Air Force as the attack occurred in the dark when Syrian aircrafts do not fly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has told the Rossiya 1 TV channel.

"Our military have already made the statements that our aviation did not work there. The Syrian aviation could not work as the attack on the convoy occurred during the hours of darkness," said Lavrov, who is attending the session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

"The Syrian Air Force does not fly at this time, they don’t have such possibilities, and the attack occurred at the moment when the humanitarian cargo was being unloaded in eastern Aleppo," he explained.

Other reports point out that the only aircraft in the area was a Predator drone used by US-coalition forces (including the CIA).

We Are Headed For War - Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Roberts also contends, “The tensions now between the United States and Russia are higher than they ever were during the cold war. For this reason, it is very dangerous.  It is dangerous for another reason.  In all of my life, every President worked to reduce tensions with Russia.  Kennedy worked with Khrushchev to defuse the Cuban missile crisis, and part of the deal was Kennedy pulled American missiles out of Turkey.  We know Richard Nixon worked . . . very hard to get a strategic arms limitation treaty. . . . Now, we have NATO right on Russia’s border.  This is a massive violation of commitments that the United States made.  We now have extremely high amounts of tensions, and I think with this recent attack by the United States on Syrian troops, it has made it perfectly clear to the Russian government that diplomacy is useless, and they cannot reach a diplomatic understanding with the United States.  Therefore, we have reached the point where force confronts force.”

Why are American so in the dark about the dire global risks of nuclear war? Dr. Roberts, who is an award winning journalist and former editor and columnist at the Wall Street Journal, says, “There are no longer any independent networks.  ABC, NBC and CBS are all cogs in huge conglomerates.  The media companies are not run by journalists.  They are run by former government officials and corporate advertising executives who have no interest whatsoever in telling the truth. . . . So, essentially, there is no longer any media.  It’s a ministry of propaganda.”

On the economy, with around 94 million people out of the workforce and the near record low Labor Force Participation rate, Dr. Roberts says, “The Labor Force Participation rate never falls during a recovery. It rises because people are entering the labor force to take advantage of the strong economy and jobs.  So, there isn’t any economy.  There is a house of cards that is held together by central bank money creation.  The money flows into financial assets.  That’s what keeps the stock market up, and it flows into bonds, which is why we have essentially 0% interest rates. . . . So, the economy is essentially a hoax.”

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson: Rebuilding The Man

Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson sits down to discuss his new book, The Antidote: Healing America From the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood. Reverend Peterson talks about his life growing up, how it impacts him today, how it motivated him to write his new book, and his experience in trying to heal and converse with Black Lives Matter leaders. He also talks about the recent protests spurred by Colin Kaepernick and who he will be voting for in the upcoming election.


Who is Criticizing Black Lives Matter?

An executive for the Eric Trump Foundation made the case on the floor of the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night that black lives have historically mattered less than the lives of others.
Lynne Patton, a black woman and an assistant to Eric Trump, son of the GOP presidential nominee, thrilled convention with a spirited argument that Donald Trump will repair racial divisions in the U.S.
“There’s not one person in this room who can dispute that historically black lives have mattered less,” she said. “My life mattered less. And whether we like it or not, there are people out there who still believe this to be true. As a minority myself, I personally pledge to you that Donald Trump knows that my life matters, that your life matters, that LGBT lives matter. He knows that veteran lives matter and he knows that blue lives matter.”
The crowd cheered and many came to their feet.
“I’m proud to stand here tonight and support Donald trump not in spite of the color of my skin, but because of the color of my skin,” she said.

Mike Rivero on Obama's Legacy - Comments from, Sept 21, 2016.

A memo to President Barak Hussein Obama: sir, the American people have grown tired of, and angry at, a system which collectively puts middle class Americans at the proverbial "back of the bus."

We are tired of an Administration which lies so consistently - about everything - that you and your minions have completely lost the trust of the American people.

Your Department of Labor Statistic's numbers on unemployment (5%, I believe, is the current fiction) are a complete lie, because they do not factor in the 90 + million Americans who have been "out of a job for too long to count, or have given up looking."

Poverty, under your watch, has broken a 50 year record:

That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record

3 million more kids have fallen into poverty under your watch:

Report: 3 million more children in poverty under Obama, 22% of all kids

The use of food stamps by desperate Americans has risen 70% under your administration:

Food stamp president: Enrollment up 70 percent under Obama

The outsourcing/offshoring of American jobs continues apace:


Of course, your Corporate Globalist Masters are, generally, very happy with you; you've delivered what you promised them on this issue of offshoring/outsourcing, and
the gutting of the American middle class is pretty much on schedule.

The wars you promised to close out in your 2008 campaign continue to fester, and you've chosen some new wars to start as well.

We are still hopelessly mired in Afghanistan and Iraq, yet you have chosen new wars in Yemen (you remember; the proxy war using Saudi Arabian military, where US supplied white phosphorous has killed civilians, right?!?) and Syria, and you are threatening wars against North Korea, China, and Russia.

When it comes to real, hard-won geopolitical negotiations though which the Us government should be achieving its goals, you, unfortunately, have been a rather dull instrument, despite your "teleprompter eloquence".

You have been a great President for the globalist one percenters; but generally lousy, sir, for the rest of us.

And one of the greatest demonstrations of this is your dogged persistence to get Congress to sign off on the TPP during the "lame duck" period later this year.. There are so many things wrong with it, that I cannot begin to articulate them, but the following is a reasonable summation:

Secret TPP Text Unveiled: It’s Worse than We Thought

Simply put, it will allow more offshoring of American jobs; have Americans fighting countries in which similar jobs pay 65 cents an hour; allow corporations to use slave labor, against which American labor cannot possibly complete; and have global corporations' policies supersede American laws in disputes.

The hard reality is, Mr. President: globalism works only for the huge corporations, and the wealthy elites; it does not work for We the People of the United States of America, and we have come to recognise this.

That is why there may well be positive change coming in November; we have had enough, thank you very much, of your faux populism, and your lies.

Oh, and BTW: the Nobel Prize Nominating Committee wants your Nobel Prize BACK!!!

Paul Craig Roberts "Russia Didn't Attack The UN Aid Convoy, It's A False Flag"!

Dr Roberts appearing on the Richie Allen radio show where he points out that there was no logical reason for the Russians to attack the aid convoy in Syria. Meanwhile individuals like John Kerry and the UN chief Ban-Ki Moon shamelessly come out and push lies that Assad is using chemical weapons and the Russians have been bombing hospitals and other bogus claims.

There is a heinous push to destroy Syria by these people who are acting much like one might suppose Nazi propagandists did (promoting aggressive war).

Trump Announces Endorsements of 44 Additional US Generals, Admirals

US presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that 44 additional admirals and generals support him as presidential candidate.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US presidential candidate Donald Trump has won the endorsement of 44 additional admirals and generals, bringing to 164 the total number of flag officer endorsements to 164, according to a statement issued by the candidate’s campaign on Friday.

"Working with our armed forces is the most important responsibility of the presidency," Trump said in the statement. "I thank each of these strong leaders for their dedicated service to our country and their confidence in me to serve as commander-in-chief."
On September 7, the campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton announced that 95 generals and admirals supported her bid for the presidency.
A day earlier, eighty-eight retired generals said in an open letter they backed Trump as the best candidate to become the next US commander-in-chief and change the country’s security posture.

It would be wise to check Hillary's campaign claims about the number of her high level military supporters. If she lied about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia ....

Media Silent As Major Pipeline Spills While Protests Against North Dakota Pipeline Continue

As Native American tribes continue their marches in various cities to show their support for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, a major pipeline in the Southeast recently broke and major media outlets remained silent.

Though some did report the spill on their websites, the focus of the news was on the impending gas shortages and the rise of gas prices caused by the spill. At the heart of mainstream media is always how news will affect consumers rather than the ecological repercussions.

The Colonial Pipeline, which has main lines running through about ten states, ruptured in Shelby County, Alabama and leaked 250,000 gallons starting on September 9th before it was closed.

Six thousand barrels were spilled and found to be leaking at an inactive mine site, where hundreds of employees and contract workers are now risking their health to clean up the mess. The vapors from the large amounts of gasoline in the confined area are a risk to the workers if inhaled.

Obama is Protecting the Terrorists, America to the Rescue of ISIS-ISIL-Daesh. Testimonies of Syrian Soldiers Who Witnessed the US Airstrikes

These testimonies by Syrian soldiers who are fighting the Islamic State rebels (ISIS-Daesh) confirm what we already know.

The United States of America is not fighting the terrorists in Syria.

The Obama administration, with the support of its allies including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, is supporting the Islamic State (ISIS Daesh)

Obama’s counterterrorism campaign in Syria and Iraq is bogus.

Read carefully: 
The testimonies confirm the unspoken truth:


- We [Syrian soldiers] first thought the aircraft are support to us after the first 2 shots, but we quickly found out that they are targeting our forces aggressively, while we were fighting IS terrorists. The aircraft used cluster bombs against us.
- A day before the airstrikes, the [US] drones were flying and scanning all the area
- The US air-strikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.  

- IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing

- US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces

- It for sure wasn’t a mistake, they targeted us intentionally to help IS.

- America is ISIS itself

Translation from Arabic (H. E)
The US Air strikes were deliberate, they were carefully planned and coordinated with ISIS-Daesh commandos on the ground.

The bombings enabled the ISIS-Daesh Islamic State mercenaries to wage an effective counterattack against Syrian government forces.

The “incident” was casually dismissed by America’s media: “US airstrikes Missed ISIS, but Damaged US Policy in Syria”.

Fake media reports support a fake “war on terrorism”: Sorry, collateral damage, we got our targets mixed up…

Note: I am sceptical of the account that helicopters opened fire on the soldiers. However ...

There are interviews with the surviving soldiers from the strike that indicate the US attacks were upon well known and fixed Syrian Army positions. Drones observed what was occurring and they should have been able to identify ISIS fighters and their equipment from the regular Syrian Army units that were fighting against them. The most important aspect to consider is that the US forces are illegally intervening in the conflict:

Syrian War Report – September 20, 2016: Militant ‘Humanitarian’ Convoy Destroyed on Road near Aleppo

A Syria Red Crescent Society aid convoy (reportedly 10-20 trucks) was at Urem al-Kubra allegedly destroyed by an air strike in western Aleppo, according to pro-militant sources. There are conflicting reports about the movement of convoy. Western media say that the convoy was heading from the government-controlled western Aleppo while the purpose of such a direction remains unclear. Other reports indicate that the convoy was heading from the countryside of Idlib to northern Aleppo, carrying weapons and ammunition for terrorists in the area. The confirmed facts are:
  • There are no facts proving that the bombed convoy was authorized and inspected by the Syrian government and the UN.
  • The released video of air strike scene has depicted a number of burning vehicles. Photos, released next morning by pro-militant sources and aimed to prove that this was a humanitarian convoy, do not contain traces of fire situation.
Whether this was a humanitarian convoy or not, this incident indicates a new rung on the escalation ladder and will be used by the US-backed militant groups and Washington to prove that they were not responsible for the collapse of cessation of hostilities in Syria.

The (humanitarian) convoy could have been deliberately targeted by US-terrorist forces (as a false flag), or it could have been struck by the Syrian-Russian Air Forces (where the convoy was carrying arms, and not a UN convoy) or that it was accidentally struck by the latter group.

Regardless of the perpetrators, this incident will be used by the West as propaganda to distract from the incident where US aircraft attacked the Syrian Army in Deir Ezzor and essentially broke the ceasefire.

Presently the US is 'having trouble' splitting the 'moderate' terrorist groups from the Al Qaeda linked groups. Separating these groups is impossible. Therefore the US will favour a resumption of fighting rather than have this (open secret) reality exposed:
