Nothing to Hide? Israel Seeks to Criminalize Filming of IDF Soldiers on Duty


Israel's parliament is now discussing a new law which would ban the filming of soldiers. Those behind the bill say that video of the IDF's activities can be used to damage the Israeli army's reputation. The IDF is frequently accused of using excessive force – something that is denied by army chiefs.

Cover-ups -- Malcolm Fraser's Last Interview




Fraser talks about power sacrificing as many people as necessary in order to protect (or further) their own interests.

He talks about Australia being a vassal of the US in many respects and the false flag attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 - an attack that was intended to drag the US into war against Egypt to serve Israeli interests. He also talks about money in politics in relation to the Australian experience, and how things have changed.

At the end of the interview the interviewer asks Mr Fraser what he thought about 911, which he considered was a failure of intelligence, whereupon the interviewer says she will forward him a video of the "collapse" of Building 7:

"Roseanne" Cancelled by ABC After Roseanne Barr Calls George Soros Out (Styx)


Most of her critics have no clue who Valerie Jarrett is, and Soros is indeed a nazi collaborating sellout billionaire



Although the Roseanne comment was inappropriate it is true that Valerie Jarrett's face has some resemblance to the 1960s Planet of the Apes costumes, in which the chimpanzee faces were elongated (Dr Zira, Dr Cornelius) with relatively pale skin tones. Her comment seemed to have little to do with equating black people to apes (gorillas) as is most often the case when it comes to these kinds of insults. Also note that George W Bush's face (a white guy) has frequently been compared to that of a chimpanzee. Her comment seems to be about morphology rather than overt racism. This does not mean I condone the comment, only that one can see where it came from, and that the intention was likely not racially motivated.

SOLO'S BOX OFFICE DISASTER: What the media won't acknowledge....




Story thanks to Trump is Right.

The clip here nails the real reasons the film flopped.

Essentially there was a huge boycott against the overt SJW politics injected into the franchise combined with poor storytelling. Many "mainstream" fans have become disinterested in going to see another substandard film. What they want is to go and see an ENJOYABLE film that does not punish them by insulting their intelligence and sensibilities.

While some people might appreciate the SJW messaging (while overlooking the abysmal storytelling) the vast majority of people were simply not going to buy into it.

Also, people who always saw the Star Wars films as comedy, and never took the franchise seriously, would not be too discerning when it came to the new films. The issue is that these people, which may include the "intellectually minded", are another small minority of the audience, and their views are not important when it comes to the general public's perspectives.

The bottom line is that Disney has lost many hundreds of millions of dollars by allowing inept and highly politicised individuals make the recent Star Wars films.

Putin’s Big Warning To NATO: “Ukraine Is Our RED LINE”


Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Western countries not to cross the “red line” in relations with Moscow.

“Well, there are certain limits, understand that the ‘red line’ should not be crossed. Respect our interests as well,” said the president on Saturday during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2018.

According to Putin, NATO’s enlargement could pose a threat to Russia. The Russian president stated that this situation arose in Ukraine after the coup.

“In addition to the fact that NATO has approached our borders, we suspect that tomorrow Ukraine will also be included [in the Alliance] and place radars and anti-missile defense systems,” said the Russian leader. Putin has made it clear that such an alliance is unworkable, and herein lies the ‘red line’.

The Manchester Bomber Was Enabled by the British Government


The culpability of the British government and its intelligence agencies in enabling suicide bomber Salman Abedi to blow himself up at a pop concert in Manchester is being masked one year later by the mood of grief and mourning over the death and injury of so many people.
 
It is heartrending to hear injured children and the relatives of the dead say they do not hate anybody as a result of their terrible experiences and, if they feel anger at all, it is only directed towards the bomber himself. Victims repeatedly say that they did not want the slaughter at the Manchester Arena to be used to create divisions in their city.
 
The downside of this praiseworthy attitude is that it unintentionally lets off the hook those British authorities whose flawed policies and mistaken actions really did pave the way towards this atrocity. Appeals against divisiveness and emphasis on the courage of survivors have muted attacks on the government, enabling it to accuse those who criticise it of mitigating the sole guilt of Abedi.
 
This attitude is highly convenient for former prime minister David Cameron who decided in 2011 on military intervention against Muammar Gaddafi. His purported aim was humanitarian concern for the people of Benghazi, but – as a devastatingly critical report by the House of Commons Select Committee on Foreign Affairs said last year – this swiftly turned into “an opportunistic policy of regime change”.
 
The military intervention succeeded and by the end of the year Gaddafi was dead. Real power in Libya passed to Islamist militias, including those with which the Abedi family were already associated. Pictures show Salman’s brothers posing with guns in their hands. Libya was plunged into an endless civil war and Benghazi, whose people Cameron and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy were so keen to save, is today a sea of ruins. Inevitably, Isis took advantage of the anarchy in Libya to spread its murderous influence.
 
This is the Libyan reality which was created by Cameron and Sarkozy, with sceptical support from Barack Obama, the then US president, who famously referred to the Libyan debacle as a “shit show”.
 
Libya became a place where the Abedi family, returning from their long exile in Manchester, were able put their militant Islamist beliefs into practice. They absorbed the toxic variant of Islam espoused by the al-Qaeda clones, taking advantage of their military experience honed in the Iraq war, such as how to construct a bomb studded with pieces of metal designed to tear holes in human flesh. The bomb materials were easily available in countries like Britain.
 
Salman Abedi was responsible for what he did, but he could not have killed 22 people and maimed another 139 others, half of them children, if the British government had not acted as it did in Libya in 2011. And its responsibility goes well beyond its disastrous policy of joining the Libyan civil war, overthrowing Gaddafi and replacing him with warring tribes and militias.
 
Manchester had since the 1990s become a centre for a small but dangerous group of exiled Libyans belonging to anti-Gaddafi groups, such as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, originally formed by Libyans fighting the communists in Afghanistan. After the invasion of Iraq in 2003, strict measures were taken by MI5 and the police against Libyans thought likely to sympathise with al-Qaeda in Iraq and, later, Isis. They were subject to counter-terrorism control orders monitoring and restricting their movements and often had their passports confiscated.
 
But no sooner had Britain joined the war against Gaddafi than these suspected terrorists became useful allies. Their control-orders were lifted, their passports returned and they were told that the British government had no problem with them going to Libya to fight against Gaddafi. In place of past restrictions, they were allowed to pass to and fro at British airports. Some militants are reported as saying that when they had problems with counter-terrorism police when flying to Libya, the MI5 officers with whom they were in touch were willing to vouch for them and ease their way to the battlefront in Libya, where MI6 was cooperating with Qatar and UAE as financiers of the armed opposition.
 
This opportunistic alliance between the British security services and Libyan Salafi-jihadis may explain why Salman Abedi, though by now high up on the list of potential terrorists, was able to fly back to Manchester from Libya unimpeded a few days before he blew himself up.
 
There should be far more public and media outrage about the British government’s role in the destruction of Libya, especially its tolerance of dangerous Islamists living in Britain to pursue its foreign policy ends. The damaging facts about what happened are now well established thanks to parliamentary scrutiny and journalistic investigation.
 
The official justification for British military intervention in Libya is that it was to prevent the massacre of civilians in Benghazi by Gaddafi’s advancing forces. The reason for expecting this would happen was a sanguinary speech by Gaddafi which might mean that he intended to kill them all. David Cameron, along with Liam Fox as defence minister at the time and William Hague as foreign secretary, have wisely stuck with this explanation and, as a defence of their actions, they are probably right to do so. But a report by the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee says that the belief that Gaddafi would “massacre the civilians in Benghazi was not supported by the available evidence”. It points out that he had retaken other towns from the rebels and not attacked the civilian population.
 
The British followed the French lead in military intervention and Sarkozy similarly justified his policy as being in defence of the people of Benghazi. We are a little better informed about the real French motives thanks to a report, revealed through the Freedom of Information Act, made in early 2011 by Sidney Blumenthal, an unofficial advisor to Hillary Clinton, the then US secretary of state, after a meeting he had had with French intelligence officials about Sarkozy’s motives for intervention.
 
The officials told Blumenthal that Sarkozy’s plans were driven by five main causes, the first being “a desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production” and the next being to increase French influence in North Africa. His other aims were to improve his own political standing in France, enable the French military to reassert their position in the world, and prevent Gaddafi supplanting France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa.
 
The intelligence officials make no mention of any concern on the part of Sarkozy for the safety of the Libyan people. Conceivably Cameron, Hague and Fox had much purer and more altruistic motives than their French counterparts. But it is more likely that the aim was always regime change in the national interest of those foreign powers who brought it about.

How Identity Politics Is Changing Universities


Ours is a politicized age from the college campus to the corporate boardroom, a situation in which things that once were personal now are utterly political.

The hard left now controls not only higher education, but also much of scientific research upon which the future of humanity as we know it depends. What began in 1969 as the establishment of a single course in Women’s Studies at Cornell University and similar courses elsewhere in what then were called Black Studies has metastasized into a monster that almost completely dominates higher education in the United States and Canada. Today, it is rare to find a college or university that does not have majors and programs in Identity Studies.

This long march of feminists and racialists from near-obscurity to absolute-dominance is compared to the rise of Snopes family created by author William Faulkner in his 1940 novel, The Hamlet. In Faulkner’s book, the Snopeses move into the Mississippi community of Frenchman’s Bend and slowly take over nearly all aspects of life. Even though the locals seem to understand what is taking place, they are seemingly helpless because they heard the rumor that people that made a Snopes unhappy would have their barns burned to the ground.

In campus politics, the activists did not threaten to burn only the barns but rather the entire college campus. Anyone in higher education that might allegedly say or write something that offends someone in a politically-protected group is likely to be the focus of the infamous Twitter Mob, and even a distinguished career and something as prestigious as a Nobel Prize offers no cover, as Tim Hunt found out.
----------------------------------------
Instead of being subordinate to disciplines such as the sciences, the Identity Studies dominate campus discourse and their advocates now force scientists and mathematicians to bow down to racialism and feminism. Professors that do not stoop quickly or those that resist often are pushed out of their jobs or are marginalized. The feminist uprising that threw Lawrence Summers out of Harvard’s presidency, along with the outcry responsible for the ouster of Nobel Prize-winning scientist Tim Hunt from his university position in Great Britain for remarks that he made as a luncheon speaker, speaks to the influence and power feminism has at the modern university.

In fact, ideologies of identity now are being embedded into actual scientific study itself, a phenomenon embodied by a recent academic paper in the science journal Progress in Human Geography, entitled “Glaciers, gender, and science: A feminist glaciology framework for environmental change research.” The last sentence of the paper’s abstract declares:
Merging feminist postcolonial science studies and feminist political ecology, the feminist glaciology framework generates robust analysis of gender, power, and epistemologies in dynamic social-ecological systems, thereby leading to more just and equitable science and human-ice interactions. 
The sentence is laughable on its face, but the politicization of academic study is real. Faulkner’s Snopes family consisted of dull, mediocre but dogged people who strategically-placed themselves in locations in which they gained control over others. The academic Snopeses have done the same, putting themselves not only in important governing and administrative positions on campus, but also in government regulatory jobs such as the Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education. While many people in traditional academic pursuits sought to publish and expand knowledge in their fields, those in the Identity Studies sought to expand their own political power by threatening anyone who opposed them, accusing dissenters with accusations of racism, sexism, and homophobia.

Even traditional feminists cannot escape the campus witch-hunts that ramped-up enforcement of Title IX of the 1972 Higher Education Act has created. Highly-accomplished Northwestern University film professor Laura

Kipnis in 2015 found herself being investigated by her employer for alleged Title IX violations because of an essay she published in The Chronicle of Higher Education entitled “Sexual Paranoia Strikes Academe.” Kipnis, it would seem, had the necessary credentials of a feminist, but that did not matter to the new campus Snopeses. (Northwestern did rule in her favor, but only after Kipnis fought back. She then published another essay, this one on her “inquisition,” and recently publishing a book, Unwanted Advances: Sexual Paranoia Comes to Campus,about her experiences.)

The present situation is close to being a crisis, if not already one. Faculty members on many campuses are being forced to sign “diversity statements,” which are little more than disguised loyalty oaths, which should be anathema in higher education. Universities are demanding conformity that is reminiscent of the Lysenkoismthat infected universities and the scientific community of the U.S.S.R. for decades, and with disastrous results.

Swift Injustice: The "Terrifying" Case Of Tommy Robinson


The swiftness with which injustice was meted out to Tommy Robinson is stunning. No, more than that: it is terrifying.

Without having access to his own lawyer, Robinson was summarily tried and sentenced to 13 months behind bars. He was then transported to Hull Prison.

Meanwhile, the judge who sentenced Robinson also ordered British media not to report on his case. Newspapers that had already posted reports of his arrest quickly took them down. All this happened on the same day.

In Britain, rapists enjoy the right to a full and fair trial, the right to the legal representation of their choice, the right to have sufficient time to prepare their cases, and the right to go home on bail between sessions of their trial. No such rights were offered, however, to Tommy Robinson.
---------------------------------------------
From one perspective, to be sure, Robinson's lightning-fast arrest, trial, and imprisonment should not have come as a surprise. "There has been a campaign to 'get Tommy' -- or what looks remarkably like it -- for some time," a source in the UK, whom I will call Jane Doe, told me late early Saturday morning.

The apparent justification for Robinson's arrest is that he was on a suspended sentence. In May of last year, he was taken into custody while reporting from outside a courthouse in Kent, where another group of Muslim defendants was being tried, also on "grooming" charges. That arrest was also unjustified. At least, however, Robinson was given a suspended sentence. This time, presumably, it was determined that the mere act of reporting yet again from outside another courthouse amounted to a violation of the terms of his suspended sentence.

The official cynicism here is obvious. Jane Doe made a vital point: that often, when one of these "grooming gang" trials is being held, the extended families and friends of the defendants stand outside the courthouse and "heckle and intimidate" the rape victims as well as their families and supporters. "I've had reports of children as young as five throwing stones at victims' families," Doe said.

"This intimidation by extended community groups also involves going around to houses and harassing people." She has even heard of witnesses for the prosecution who have needed police protection to use a rest room inside a courthouse. Needless to say, this heckling and harassment is rarely reported on and never punished.

One potentially positive aspect of this ugly turn of events is that it turned heads that should have been turned long ago. Jane Doe noted that many of her Twitter contacts "were tweeting that they didn't necessarily support Tommy in general but were appalled that someone reporting these [grooming] crimes was arrested." Some of her acquaintances, she said, "are stunned and in despair." On Saturday, thousands of Robinson's supporters rallied in Westminster. But will such public protests make any difference? One British ex-policeman reacted to Robinson's incarceration with a video urging his fellow countrymen not just to march or rally but to join Ann Marie Waters' party For Britain and do for freedom of speech in Britain what UKIP did to get British out of the EU.

Jane Doe had more interesting information to offer. While Robinson is being punished for drawing attention to Muslim rape gangs, the Sikh Awareness Society, which has also reported on these "grooming" trials, is left alone. "They are a godsend," said Doe, "because they pull no punches yet don't seem to get the intimidation that people like Tommy get." Of course -- British police would not dare arrest a bearded man in a turban. Doe also mentioned an imam who was arrested recently, only to be let go by police after "a large group of supporters demanded his release." At least one police officer acknowledged that the imam had been freed because otherwise "they would have been facing riots all around the country." Doe summed up British authorities' current approach to the Islamic situation as follows: "they have lost control... and are simply going for those who they think will make the least fuss. The classroom bully has terrorised the teacher into punishing the kids who are bullied."

One assumes that the officials think that perpetrating this kind of injustice will somehow keep the peace. If I were one of their number, I would not be so certain. The people at that Westminster rally on Saturday were angry. How many other British subjects share their anger? Doe expressed concern that this summer in Britain may turn out to be quite restive. Well, maybe that is all for the good.

For my part, I cannot for the life of me fathom why not a single prominent or powerful individual in all of the United Kingdom has come forward to challenge the mistreatment of Tommy Robinson – and thereby stand up for freedom of speech.

Is the whole British establishment a bunch of cowards? I suppose we will know the answer to that question soon enough, if we do not know it already.

Two Ebola Patients Vomiting Blood Escaped Containment, Were Brought by Motorcycle to a Religious Gathering of at Least 50 people. Dozens or Hundreds Exposed in a City of 1 Million


Health officials in Congo are anxious to contain the country's deadly Ebola outbreak — which has already spread to an urban area — before the situation gets any worse. But controlling the virus may have just gotten tougher.
On Thursday, a senior Doctors Without Borders aid worker said that two patients infected with Ebola who fled their hospital on Monday night potentially exposed dozens of more people to the virus.
In a briefing in Geneva, Jean-Clement Cabrol, a doctor who had just returned from Congo, said "the patients were in the active phase of the disease, vomiting" when their families removed them from the hospital, put them on motorcycles, and took them to a religious gathering of 50 people. Ebola is contagious through bodily fluids, and both patients, who were at an acute phase of the illness, died within hours.
Those two were among the three Ebola patients who left a hospital isolation ward and reentered the general population, according to the Doctors Without Borders mission in the Congolese city of Mbandaka.
One patient left Sunday, shortly before being discharged, and is still alive, according to the aid group. The two others who attended the prayer gathering left overnight Monday; one died outside of quarantine, and another was brought back to the hospital and died there.
“In all three cases, every effort was made by staff at the hospital to convince the patients — and their families — not to leave and to continue their treatment,” Brienne Prusak, a press officer for MSF, as Doctors Without Borders is frequently known, said in a statement.

Tough Rules See Migrants Give Up and Go Home


Some frustrated migrants are giving up and going home because they say new rules make it harder to work and stay in New Zealand.

In the year to April, more than 30,000 non-New Zealand citizens who had been here on a permanent or long-term basis left this country - up 23 per cent on the year before, according to Statistics NZ.
 
As a result, annual net migration is down 4800 from a high point a year ago.
 
Most were temporary migrants who arrived on student and work visas, experts believe.
------------------------------------
Spoonley said there were many "frustrated immigrant job seekers" who were giving up on New Zealand.
 
He said there remained a reluctance among small to medium enterprise owners to consider any applicant who did not have local experience.
 
Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway said this was a "flow-on effect" of the high migration that occurred under the previous Government.
 
"What we're seeing here is a significant cohort of temporary migrants and those on student visas with post-study work rights leaving the country as their visas expire," Lees-Galloway said.
 
"I don't accept that immigration should necessarily fill shortages in industries like hospitality and retail when the underemployment rate remains high at around 12 per cent, meaning there are plenty of New Zealand workers looking for more work."
 
Lees-Galloway said the Government remained committed to making sure the immigration system works for New Zealand.

Russian MoD: Missiles Shown By MH17 Investigators Were Decommissioned After 2011


According to the Russian Defense Ministry, it's analyzing videos provided by Dutch investigators on the MH17 downing.
 
"The Russian Defense Ministry is analyzing video materials presented on May 24 at a press conference of the Dutch Joint Investigation Team, which is engaged in the investigation of the passenger Boeing's crash in the Ukrainian skies in 2014," the ministry said.

All missiles, whose engines were demonstrated by the Dutch team, were disposed of after 2011.

"After 25 years of operation, all missiles of the Buk systems are subject to decommissioning and disposal, and further use of these products… poses a direct threat to the life of servicemen. The maximum lifetime of the missile, the engine from which was demonstrated by the Dutch commission last Thursday was 2011 (1986 + 25), after which all the missiles produced that year were seized, decommissioned and sent for disposal," the ministry said.
 
No new anti-aircraft missiles were supplied to Ukraine, which has about 20 battalions of BUK missiles systems since 1991, the ministry said, adding that a special number of the missile allegedly used to down the aircraft shows that it was produced in the Soviet Union in 1986.

The ministry further says that the Dutch commission has hushed up information about where and when the engine of the Buk missile was found, as well as about those who handed it over to the investigators.

The ministry noted that the Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT) used the remained casing of a Buk missile engine, which was showcased during Thursday's press conference, as one of the proofs of the Russian armed forces' alleged involvement in the tragedy.

"However, the speakers preferred not to mention when and where the engine was found, who handed this item to the investigative commission," the ministry's statement read.
 
The document stressed that the Dutch investigators could have glossed over the source of origin of the missile engine because it could belong to Ukraine's armed forces.

"The only reason for the deliberate silencing of the source of origin of the showcased rocket engine, produced in 1986, by the Dutch investigative commission is that it probably belongs to the Ukrainian armed forces," the statement read.
 
Russia's Reaction on Accusations

Russia categorically rejects accusations of involvement in the MH17 crash, Kremlin spokesman said, commenting on the statements issued by the Dutch and the Australian embassies earlier on Friday, in which the countries accused Russian of downing the plane.

"The investigation conducted in the Netherlands by the investigative team did not include the Russian side, although the Ukrainian side was represented. Of course, not being able to be a full-fledged participant in the work of that investigation team, Russia does not know to what extent it may trust the results of this work," Peskov said.
 
At the same time, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that there were no facts proving that Russia's alleged involvement in the MH17 crash. The minister further noted that Russia gave the Netherlands factual information on the crash and responded to all questions.

To silence or perhaps kill someone the UK's government apparently fears. I condemn this regardless of his beliefs.



The reason Robinson was sent to jail so rapidly was that he allegedly broke his parole terms. Whether he was justly imprisoned this time around is yet to be determined/explored (Sargon will probably provide accurate analysis on this point). Nevertheless, the man should not be imprisoned with violent extremists who will kill him.

Judge Jeanine – They All Lied! (Bill Still)


Just how stupid do they think we are? Judge Jeanine lists the Obama machine liars. Of course the problem with liars is that eventually the truth comes out, but just before that, the liars have to lie even more outrageously and desperately to keep the lies strung together.
That’s what we are seeing now – more and more desperate lies - lies so obvious that even the most lying of the lying media no longer believe them.
This is the last step before the liars capitulate and turn on each other – still lying away as they jocky for the shortest time in prison.

Captured Ukrainian Soldiers Say Offensive Planned for World Cup


Ukrainian soldiers captured by the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said in statements on Wednesday that Kiev might launch an offensive against Donbass during the upcoming 2018 World Cup held in Russia.

According to reports, two captured Ukrainian soldiers, Vasily Zhimilinsky and Vitaly Chmil explained the circumstances in which they were captured and answered questions from reporters. The two soldiers confirmed that they were not pressured by the Donetsk side.

“We were told that an offensive would begin either on the eve of the presidential election in Russia, when the snow melted and the earth dried up, or during the World Cup.”

The captured soldiers even revealed that “there was an order and it was all a matter of receiving more ammunition and fuel … The captain also told us that before the offensive, Javelin anti-tank missile systems would be delivered to every unit on the front line.”

Chmil confirmed suspicions that Ukrainian forces are readying for an offensive against Donbass defense forces. The two captured soldiers confirmed the presence of artillery systems at the Ukrainian army’s frontline positions.

US Tries to Bully the World into Attacking Iran


America’s conduct towards Iran demonstrates just how much of a bully the US government is, that anything short of bending 100 percent to America’s agenda will eventually result in punishment and war.
   
Newly appointed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, known as an anti-Iran hawk, began the week by giving a frightening speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation, threatening Iran with the “strongest sanctions in history”' if it doesn’t capitulate to US demands. The 12 “basic requirements” Pompeo laid out, which verge on the absurd, went far beyond requiring Iran to refrain from developing nuclear weapons, which it was already doing. Among the conditions were that Iran withdraws its forces and support from groups across the Middle East that the US doesn’t like, including in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen.

That is never going to happen. Unlike the US, Iran is a part of the Middle East. It has every right to engage with its neighbors, certainly more of a right than the US, a country that is on the other side of the world yet constantly meddles in Middle Eastern affairs to secure its interests.

It’s also important to emphasize the difference between Iranian and American actions in the region. For the last several years, the US and its regional allies backed an armed rebellion in Syria made up of a collection of Salafi Jihadist groups in an effort to collapse the Syrian state. This policy gave rise to groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria as well as Iraq. If not for Syrian allies like Iran and Russia, the Syrian state would have likely collapsed and been taken over by Al-Qaeda or ISIS. In other words, the US made a huge mess in Syria and Iraq and Iran played a crucial role in cleaning up that mess in both countries through its support for the Syrian government and its backing of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) in Iraq that were integral to the defeat of ISIS. Yet the US has the audacity to portray Iran as a destructive force in the region, when in reality it is the US and its allies that play the most disastrous role in bringing chaos to the Middle East with regime-change wars and support for Gulf monarchies, like Saudi Arabia, that spread extremism.

As for the Iran nuclear deal, it’s equally important to note that it is the US which is violating the deal against a compliant Iran, demonstrating that the price of honoring a treaty with the US is economic sanctions and potential war. That’s the message the Trump administration is sending to the world. It remains to be seen whether the European Union has the spine to stand up to the US. So far, the Europeans say they will continue to do business with Iran, uphold the Iran nuclear deal, and possibly invoke a law that allows European companies to dodge US sanctions, but whether they’ll follow through, only time will tell. 

But if the media discourse around Iran is any indication, it seems Trump’s war cabinet, led by mustachioed ultra-nationalist neoconservative hawk and newly-appointed National Security Adviser John Bolton, might get its way.

Tommy Robinson Sent to Prison - Lauren Southern


Hey everyone, ok so when I livestreamed this it was immediately after the incident which made it pretty difficult to get everything 100% accurate - especially when I'm not very educated in legal jargon.

So just some quick corrections!

Tommy had a suspended sentence from a while ago for reporting on grooming gangs. He was essentially being watched to see if he "messed up" again by reporting on these cases. When he got arrested it was because he was livestreaming about another grooming gang case - however my statement about him seemingly being within his rights, just reading things that were already reported - still stands for now.

As for the media ban, that existed on the original sentence and is just being enforced again. What this means, is yes you can talk about it as an average every day citizen, but if you were to go to the court room, and try to get more facts it etc. like journalists who were in the court today - you would not be able to publish that without facing legal troubles.

So.... that leaves us to a lot of speculation - and it's also why I have to make these corrections because I'm getting all my information second hand and not from the courts etc.



The government of the UK looks to be siding with criminal elements, essentially committing treason upon the population they are sworn to protect. There is more protection for foreign criminal elements than for those that are exposing the corruption.

Russia Finance Minister: We Are Ready To Ditch The Dollar In Favor Of The Euro


The common theme here is that Trump's sanctions against Russia - with which he is supposedly colluding - not only work, but are very effective in achieving their goal. And they do so though the biggest weapon the US has: access to the world's reserve currency, because with one phone call to SWIFT, Trump can lock out an entire nation.

So what alternatives is Russia planning, aside of course from increasingly closer trade, financial and monetary ties to China, which renminbi many speculate is only a matter of time before it replaces the USD as the world's reserve currency?

Addressing precisely this issue, Russia's Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum that settlements in US currency could be dropped by Russia in favor of the euro. That said, Russia would only engage in such an unprecedented transition under one condition: if the EU takes a stand against the latest US sanctions on Moscow.

Bin Laden and the Deep State


On September 24, 2001, a dying Osama bin Laden released his last statement to the world. It is published below, the full CIA transcript with no redactions or editing. In this now declassified but heavily suppressed document, bin Laden describes the role of the Deep State in 9/11:
  • “President Bush or any other US President, they cannot bring Israel to justice for its human rights abuses or to hold it accountable for such crimes. What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who made the attacks.”
Bin Laden’s words, and we assert these are his last words, mean much more today than they did even while the ruins in New York and Washington were still smoldering. One might note that the “jet fuel” fires in New York burned for months, billions of BTU’s melting boots well into 2002.
 
Bin Laden will explain the world today and tell the truths that warned the world of what was to come. His words are riveting.
 
In March 2007, during an interview with Amy Goodman, former NATO commander, General Wesley Clark told of plans drafted by White House advisor and admitted architect of the Iraq War, Paul Wolfowitz, to invade 7 Middle Eastern nations including, not just Iraq, but Syria and Iran.
 
The election of Barak Obama may have offset their timetable, but in light of Clark’s revelation made 11 years ago and “buried” and bin Laden’s transcript, published below, events today are able to be seen in a different and perhaps “Hitleresque” light. From Salon, October 12, 2007:
 
“In “A Time to Lead: For Duty, Honor and Country,” published by Palgrave Macmillan last month, the former four-star general recalls two visits to the Pentagon following the terrorist attacks of September 2001. On the first visit, less than two weeks after Sept. 11, he writes, a “senior general” told him, “We’re going to attack Iraq. The decision has basically been made.”
 
Six weeks later, Clark returned to Washington to see the same general and inquired whether the plan to strike Iraq was still under consideration. The general’s response was stunning:
“‘Oh, it’s worse than that,’ he said, holding up a memo on his desk. ‘Here’s the paper from the Office of the Secretary of Defense [then Donald Rumsfeld] outlining the strategy. We’re going to take out seven countries in five years.’ And he named them, starting with Iraq and Syria and ending with Iran.”
While Clark doesn’t name the other four countries, he has mentioned in televised interviews that the hit list included Lebanon, Libya, Somalia and Sudan. Indeed, he has described this same conversation on a few occasions over the past year, including in a speech at the University of Alabama in October 2006, in an appearance on Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now” broadcast last March, and most recently in an interview with CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.” On “Democracy Now” he spoke about the meetings and the memo in slightly greater detail, saying that he had made the first Pentagon visit ‘on or about Sept. 20.’”
 
The Death that was not a Death
 
The world has never been told the truth about Osama bin Laden and 9/11. On December 11, 2001, the Pakistan Observer published an article announcing bin Laden’s death. They are generally a respected news source and news agencies around the world, including Fox News and others in the US, reported the same.
 
Moreover, in 2009 I was given direct access to documents at the headquarters of Pakistan’s intelligence and information agencies, the ISPR and ISI, where I met with directors of both agencies.
 
We reviewed their files, along with other intelligence, and then had a roundtable discussion with their top analysts in a secure location in Rawalpindi.
 
They said bin Laden was dead, that they had captured and interrogated witnesses, as grim pictures raced through my mind, but they were clear.
 
Thus, when bin Laden showed up years later only to be “buried at sea” and his killers, a Navy SEAL team to suffer a catastrophic helicopter crash only days later, it became clear that the entire bin Laden story is a hoax.
 
Bin Laden was kept alive as a “deception and cover” operation by the intelligence agencies of the US, Britain and Israel in order to justify a broad war intended to reshape the world map.
 
The real architects of 911 saw how events, Sarajevo and Pearl Harbor could be used to create a world, not safe for democracy, but safe for banking, arms sales, and big oil.
 
Background
 
On May 1, 2014, a Federal Judge in New York ordered the Islamic State of Iran to pay $6bn in damages to the victims of 9/11. The case against Iran is unclear and the process for suing Iran is equally obscure. In doing so, however, a door has been opened.
 
Iran has decided to fight back, much as Russia has when accused of complicity in the use of deadly poison gas in both Britain and Syria.
 
In both cases, Iran and Russia’s, nations believe their sacred honor has been violated by charges so heinous, perhaps even ridiculous, that reality itself is strained.
 
In Russia’s case, they openly told the US that pushing such bizarre and unfounded accusations, much less using retaliatory force in response to “utter fiction,” violated all “unspoken rules of statecraft,” to paraphrase Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.
 
What neither Russia, nor Syria and Iran know, is that the Federal gag orders imposed by a secret grand jury in Houston, Texas, a grand jury impaneled not to investigate 9/11 but to administer the coverup, are to expire this year.
Why This is Vital
 
Less than two weeks after 9/11, the only proven statement on 9/11 made by Osama bin Laden was intercepted by the CIA station in Doha, Qatar. The date was September 24, 2001.
 
Bin Laden had issued a statement, in Arabic, broadcast on an Al Jazeera channel, made to the people of Pakistan. I mention Arabic while I add the fact that bin Laden, according to former White House Intelligence Advisor Lee Emil Wanta, spoke perfect English. I have spoken with Wanta on this several times where he has outlined meetings with bin Laden in Peshawar, Pakistan, Ontario, California and in Washington DC, at the Metropolitan Club.
 
Those meetings began during the 1980s when bin Laden worked for the CIA supplying weapons to the Mujahedeen and the last ones were far later than anyone would guess, with Wanta alleging bin Laden was receiving medical care at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland while the US was searching for him in Sudan and elsewhere.
 
True or not, details on meetings, which include discussions that included Oliver North and General Secord among others, will be available as testimony at some point if Iran seeks to fight the US in an international court.
 
First, however, it is important to supply the first, last and only bin Laden statement. Once one reads this, it will become abundantly clear not only that bin Laden died in 2001 but that those who submitted all subsequent statements did so to obscure the truth.
 
Of note, all alleged bin Laden videos and audio recordings received after September 24, 2001 came from one source, an Israeli intelligence officer born in Iraq named Rita Katz. Her “organization” was called SITE Intelligence and it had only one purpose at that time, to deceive the world about bin Laden and lead investigators away from one obvious suspect, Israel.
 
The CIA memo, received by Veterans Today in 2010 through the Freedom of Information Act:
“CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY FOREIGN BROADCASTING INTERNATIONAL SERVICE: FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 
WEBSITE OF DOHA AL-JAZIRAH SATELLITE CHANNEL TELEVISION IN ARABIC  [FBIS REPORT] WEBSITE OF DOHA AL-JAZIRAH SATELLITE CHANNEL TELEVISION IN ARABIC,INDEPENDENT TELEVISION STATION FINANCED BY THE QATARI GOVERNMENT, WHICH CAN BE ACCESSEDAT URL: HTTP://WWW.ALJAZEERA.NET, CARRIES AT 2011 GMT ON 24 SEPTEMBER THE TEXT OF THE FOLLOWING LETTER BY USAMA BIN LADIN “TO THE PAKISTANI PEOPLE.”
  • “We hope that these brothers would be the first martyrs in Islam’s battle in this age against the new Jewish crusade that is being led by the biggest crusader, Bush, under the banner of the cross. This battle is one of Islam’s immortal battles.”
  • “We beseech God to grant him victory against the forces of infidelity and arrogance, and to crush the new crusader-Jewish campaign on the land of Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
  • “I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States.”
  • “Neither I had any knowledge of these attacks nor I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and other people. Such a practice is forbidden ever in the course of a battle.”
  • “All that is going on in Palestine for the last 11 months is sufficient to call the wrath of God upon the United States and Israel.”
  • “Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed. According to my information, the death toll is much higher than what the US Government has stated. 
  • “The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the US system, but are dissenting against it. Or those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity so that their own civilization, nation, country, or ideology could survive.”
  • “They can be any one, from Russia to Israel and from India to Serbia.”
  • “Then you cannot forget the American Jews, who are annoyed with President Bush ever since the elections in Florida and want to avenge him.”
  • “Then there are intelligence agencies in the US, which require billions of dollars worth of funds from the Congress and the government every year. This [funding issue] was not a big problem till the existence of the former Soviet Union but after that the budget of these (FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 180)  agencies has been in danger. They needed an enemy. So, they first started propaganda against Usama and Taliban and then this incident happened.”
  • “Drug smugglers from all over the world are in contact with the US secret agencies. These agencies do not want to eradicate narcotics cultivation and trafficking because their importance will be diminished. The people in the US Drug Enforcement Department are encouraging drug trade so that they could show performance and get millions of dollars worth of budget. General Noriega was made a drug baron by the CIA and, in need, he was made a scapegoat.”
  • “President Bush or any other US President, they cannot bring Israel to justice for its human rights abuses or to hold it accountable for such crimes. What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who made the attacks.”
  • “Supporting the US act is the need of some Muslim countries and the compulsion of others. However, they should think as to what will remain of their religious and moral position if they support the attack of the Christians and the Jews on a Muslim country like Afghanistan.”
  • “I have already said that we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom.”
  • “This system is totally in control of the American Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States. It is simply that the American people are themselves the slaves of the Jews and are forced to live according to the principles and laws laid by them. So, the punishment should reach Israel.”
  •  “The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which make us surprise but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. They become afraid of it and begin to cause harm to themselves.”
  • “Terror is the most dreaded weapon in modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people. It can add fear and helplessness in the psyche of the people of Europe and the United States. It means that what the enemies of the United States cannot do, its media is doing that. You can understand as to what will be the performance of the nation in a war, which suffers from fear and helplessness.”
FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY     END OF OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT”
The world long ago accepted that the Iraq invasion of 2003 was an illegal act of aggression and that both Bush and Blair, in a “perfect world,” should be hanged as war criminals.
 
As noted from proof provided here, bin Laden never admitted complicity in 9/11 though audio tapes provided time and time again by Israeli intelligence asserted as much.
 
Were those tapes an admission by Israel, if seen in light of what we know of “fake news” today, of their role in 9/11? Was 9/11 staged to bring down, as General Clark may well be asserting, a way of pushing forward a master plan to take down Iraq, Syria, Iran and four other nations?
 
Has America, now that Israeli policy and neocon politics are predominant, moved back to the same direction, conquest of Israel’s neighbors?
 
How do bin Laden’s words play so long after what we assert was the date of his real death?
 
In light of his September 24, 2001 statement, is it perhaps obvious why a fake bin Laden, vilified by the equally fake media, was needed to push the wars that never seem to end?

Conflict In Eastern Ukraine Can Soon Turn Into Open War




After the Battle of Debaltsevo Putin ordered the DPR forces not to drive further West and they stopped. This was a mistake. DPR and LPR armies should have been allowed to create a larger zone of control in order to give them more breathing space. As things stand there are too many settlements within artillery range, which is not a good situation.

Nevertheless, the longer the conflict drags out the more likely that Western Ukraine will falter - economically and via social upheaval/political corruption.

Debunking Russian Involvement in the MH17 Shootdown: Arms Manufacturer Almaz-Antey Delivers MH17 Report [ft. Additional Analysis, Evidence and Observations]


Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey is presenting the results of its probe into the alleged missile launch that may have downed the MH17 Malaysian Airlines plane over eastern Ukraine, July 17, 2014.



These tests clearly refuted the 'Russian supplied BUK missile' hypothesis for the shoot-down, showing that if that type of missile (BUK-M1) hit at the angles observed in the wreckage of MH17, the damage should have been greater (1:03) and many distinctive 'butterfly' holes would have been present. Such holes were not observed. The presenters believed that only an older type of BUK missile, not used by Russia, may have been used.

It is more likely, considering the lack of penetrative power from the fragments in the MH17 debris, that another type of smaller missile was the candidate for the incident - perhaps an air-to-air weapon since military jets were seen by witnesses at the time of the attack:



The Dutch Safety Board presentation regarding this same incident (the 30 min video below) was extremely light on forensics (although they concur with the Russians on the location of the missile at the time of detonation). They did say that butterfly fragments had been taken out of some victims, but the question is, where are the butterfly patterns on the skin of the aircraft? The distinctive patterning seen in the Russian test was nowhere to be found.

Also, this Dutch presentation says there were no other aircraft on radar at the time of the incident, to rule out an air-to-air missile, whereas the Russians showed there were fighter sized targets on their scopes - backing up the witness reports that appeared in the BBC Russia news story (see the above video). And the Russians requested the US release their satellite images of the crime scene and Washington refused. The US satellite was right overhead at the time and would have easily seen the launch vehicle and the distinctive smoke trail from the missile. This smoke trail should have also been seen by witnesses for many miles around and would have appeared on cell phone videos and photographs - but wasn't.

We must remember that the Ukrainians, suspects in this crime, were party to the investigation. And regardless of whether or not you think Governments could lie about such things, we do have the problem of the forensic evidence. It doesn't matter what you assume - we have a fundamental issue with the raw data not matching the western account of what happened.

Israel Demolition Order for Medical Facilities in Hebron


The Israeli occupation forces yesterday issued demolition orders for the residential and agricultural structures including a clinic in Yatta, south of Hebron.

The coordinator of the anti-settlement and wall committee in Yatta, Rateb Al-Jubour told Quds Press that the Israeli forces raided the area of Shaab El-Butm, east of the city of Yatta, and handed the citizens four demolition orders under the pretext of building without a permit.

Al-Jubour explained that the demolition notices included a medical clinic belonging to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

The area is inhabited by a group of Palestinian families who depend on agriculture and sheep herding. The area is constantly attacked by Jewish settlers and there have been numerous attempts to seize their land.

This episode of the Richard Dolan Show aired on KGRA radio May 14, 2018. It is a two-hour interview with black budget expert Catherine Austin Fitts, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 1989-1993. Included in the discussion is the recent analysis by Catherine and Dr. Mark Skidmore that $21 trillion has been spent by the U.S. government without authorization -- and is essentially missing. As Catherine points out, this is enough effectively to cancel the entire debt of the United States, and it is almost certainly a low estimate. Much more is discussed in this fascinating interview, including the likelihood that at least a portion of that money is connected to a clandestine infrastructure related to the subject of UFOs.



Fitts is an expert on Black Budget spending.
