‘And while it is true that many of the ‘enlightened’ countries of the West such as America, Great Britain and others who worship at the altar of money, power and empire and who therefore engage in this modern-day form of human sacrifice known as serial warfare in appeasing these dark gods, there is one country in particular whose involvement in the grisly, gory business of human sacrifice operates on a very different, personal, primal, and primitive level, and that country of course is Israel.
Whereas the aforementioned countries deal in death not necessarily for death’s sake but rather as an unavoidable consequence of attaining the blessings that the aforementioned gods of money and power bring, when it comes to Israel however, the shedding of blood–innocent, defenseless blood–holds particular ‘sentimental’ significance.
More personal than just business, when it comes to the trappings, teachings and traditions of Judaism, blood is as intrinsic to its identity as bread and wine are within some Christian ceremonies. It is, after all, that ‘old time religion’ that functions as the beating heart of the Jewish state and which sustains and maintains who it is, what it is, what it does, and how it lives.’
‘The Israeli Police Foreign Press Spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, appears to have falsified the Israeli government’s claim that Hamas was responsible for the killing of three Israeli settler teens in June, by saying responsibility lies with a lone cell that operated without the complicity of Hamas’ leadership.
The kidnapping and subsequent killing of three Israeli settler teens last month is considered to be a flashpoint for the escalated violence in Gaza — that as of day 19 of the conflict has left 926 Palestinians, mostly civilians, dead.
At the time Israeli authorities placed the blame squarely on Hamas, with Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu saying “They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by animals in human form. Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay.”‘
‘Umm Ahmed Abu Sahwish holds stones in her hands. They are now all that’s left of her demolished home. “My home is gone and only stones remain,” the 65-year-old says.
Hundreds of homes here have been destroyed, and unexploded Israeli missiles litter the ground at the entrance to the town, at Gaza’s northern tip near the border with Israel. The local hospital, emergency rescue equipment, and infrastructure have also incurred heavy damage from Israeli shelling.
Another woman, from a family of 20 people, cries as she tries to dig through the rubble of her house.’
‘Margaret Thatcher was told about alleged sex parties with under-age boys held by one of her closest aides claims her former personal bodyguard.
Barry Strevens, who worked as the prime minister’s personal bodyguard, said that he passed on allegations about her confidant Sir Peter Morrison.
The former senior police officer said that Lady Thatcher appointed Sir Peter deputy party chairman of the Conservatives despite learning of the rumours.’
‘The British government plans to strictly control the release of ‘establishment’ paedophile revelations over a period of decades in order to avoid mass civil unrest, according to a Westminster source.
It is further claimed that many cases will never be disclosed due to the severity of the offences that took place, and also the high profile status of those involved.
Even politicians such as Simon Danczuk and Tom Watson, who have pushed for transparency, are all too aware of the dangers that mass disclosure may bring.’
‘The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.’
‘Ukrainian armed forces mounted a major onslaught against pro-Russian separatists today in an attempt to gain control over the MH17 crash site.
It marks a continuation of a days-long offensive which has led them to push back into three towns in the rebel-held regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in the past four days, while international investigators desperate to access to downed jet’s crash site pull out for fear of being caught in the fighting.
On Thursday and Friday Ukrainian forces were pushing into the town of Lysychansk, a strategic centre in Luhansk. Today there were reports that tanks rolled into Shakhtarsk, just ten miles from the site, while Ukraine claimed to have surrounded the rebel stronghold of Horlivka, both in Donetsk.’
‘Some of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes could be fracked for oil and gas after the Government today invited bids from energy companies for licences that would allow them start work wherever they think resources can be found.
Ministers believe fracking will make a major contribution to the nation’s future energy requirements and are determined to see it go ahead despite the huge protests it often provokes.’
Why would these people attempt to damage the work of someone who was at the front line 25 years ago before there was a ‘truth movement’ and has already done more to alert people to the truth worldwide than this lot will do collectively if they live to be a thousand?
Who benefits? The System.
Why would they be so quick to criticise the UK Column which is way further down the rabbit hole than they will ever be prepared to go?
Who benefits? The System.
You can expect some major attempts to discredit me in the next few months which are bubbling in the background at the moment because I am getting far too close to the truth and they know that I won’t be intimidated or silenced.
I take it as a compliment and I’ll just run at them quicker.
Watch this space and all that.
‘Nick Clegg has joined calls for Russia to lose the right to host the 2018 World Cup as part of tougher sanctions over the shooting down of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine.
The Deputy Prime Minister has said it was ‘unthinkable’ at present that the tournament could go ahead in the country blamed by the West for supplying arms to separatist rebels accused of causing the deaths of all 298 on board the Malaysia Airlines flight.
World football governing body Fifa has this week rejected calls from some German politicians for Russia to be boycotted.’
‘Tony Blair – the Middle East Peace Envoy – threw a lavish birthday party for his wife on Friday night at their country bolthole in Buckinghamshire, while the grim death toll from the Gaza conflict passed the 1,050 mark.
Mr Blair, whose role is to hammer out a ceasefire in times of conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, spent most of last week in the UK before hosting the couple’s friends at the party, estimated to have cost about £50,000.
He held the surprise 60th birthday party for Cherie at their £6million country mansion South Pavilions, formerly the home of Sir John Gielgud, inviting 150 of their closest friends, which included former New Labour ministers, as well as wealthy businessmen and TV celebrities.’

‘Jihadist group ISIS published photos of the beheadings of soldiers and officers at a Syrian government base near the eastern city of Raqqa after rebel forces reportedly breached a stronghold that had not been captured since the start of the conflict.
Conflicting reports have emerged regarding the outcome of the attack, which began when two Saudi suicide bombers simultaneously detonated their payload at different points of the Division 17 base perimeter on Thursday.
Hours of intense firefights followed. The jihadists – who already control much of the northeastern province – attacked from the ground, while government forces used helicopters to strike back while holding fortified positions.’
‘Cash-strapped families should not waste their money on organic food because they think it is healthier, the government has warned.
Shoppers should instead spend their money on whatever they can afford, even if it means eating tinned or frozen vegetables which are in no way ‘nutritionally inferior’.
The government now faces calls to end £20million of subsidies to organic farming, which owes ‘more to myth than evidence’.’
‘David Cameron’s new defence secretary Michael Fallon has been shrouded in controversy after the Mail on Sunday alleged he is the minister who called author Bryony Gordon a ‘slut’.
Ms Gordon, an author and columnist for the Daily Telegraph, alleged last week that a member of the Prime Minister’s new “female-friendly” Cabinet approached her at a party near Westminster four years ago and insulted her.
She wrote that while attending a party for a departing colleague, where “people were speed-drinking to keep cool” in the heat, she was approached by a Tory MP who asked what she was doing in the bar.’
‘A British embassy convoy in Tripoli came under fire on Sunday in an attempted carjacking but no one was hurt, a spokesman for London’s mission in Libya said.
“Early this morning a British embassy convoy was subject to an attempted carjacking. Shots were fired at our vehicles but they managed to drive on and leave the area,” spokesman Bob Phillipson said.
“All embassy personnel are safe and accounted for and there were no injuries,” he said.’
‘The extremist-linked mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman, benefited from “industrial-scale” postal ballot fraud and may also have been helped by “organised fraud in the counting of the votes”, according to his Labour Party rival.
John Biggs, who was narrowly defeated in May’s highly controversial election, said he and party colleagues had seen a number of ballot papers at the count where a vote for him, or candidates supporting him, had been crossed out and a different vote written in.
He accused Mr Rahman’s supporters of a “considerable amount of election fraud, principally centred around the manipulation of postal votes” and said there were “very significant doubts about the integrity of the ballot”.’
‘The European Union has pledged to spend £25 million on treating drug addicts in Peru.
The three-year funding deal forms part of European Commission’s international development work, despite the fact that Peru is richer than half of all EU countries.
Conservatives said the plan showed EU officials wasting taxpayers’ money in pursuit of their “imperialist ambitions”.’
‘Scientific evidence refuting the theory of modern humanity’s African genesis is common knowledge among those familiar with the most recent scientific papers on the human Genome, Mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosomes. Regrettably, within mainstream press and academia circles, there seems to be a conspicuous – and dare we say it – deliberate vacuum when it comes to reporting news of these recent studies and their obvious implications.
Australian historian Greg Jefferys explains that, “The whole ‘Out of Africa’ myth has its roots in the mainstream academic campaign in the 1990′s to remove the concept of Race. When I did my degree they all spent a lot of time on the ‘Out of Africa’ thing but it’s been completely disproved by genetics. Mainstream still hold on to it.”‘
‘The drought-stricken Colorado River Basin has experienced rapid and significant groundwater depletion since late 2004, posing a greater threat to the water supply of the western United States than previously thought, according to a new study by NASA and University of California, Irvine.
The research team used data from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite mission to track changes in the mass of the Colorado River Basin, which is the water source for more than 30 million people and 4 million acres of farmland.
The satellites showed the basin lost nearly 53 million acre feet (about 17 trillion gallons) of freshwater between 2004-2013 — almost double the volume of the nation’s largest reservoir, Nevada’s Lake Mead, which itself recently fell to its lowest level since the 1930s. More than three-quarters of the total water loss in the Colorado River Basin was from groundwater. The basin has been experiencing the driest 14-year period in the last 100 years.’
‘A “trippy” video featuring Miley Cyrus, the Flaming Lips and Moby is actually about Mind Control. It was filmed when Cyrus was “hospitalized” which is often a code word for “re-programming”.
Miley Cyrus is definitely the current poster girl of Mind Control in the entertainment industry and there is no lack of material proving it. Only a few weeks ago, a video came out while she was under “doctors care” that was purely about mind control.’
‘Let me see if I have this right, because it’s getting really hard to keep things straight these days.
So it is on record that the U.S. government/military-industrial complex has financially backed the ISIS rebels in Syria to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, and key members were trained by our CIA at a secret military base in Jordan back in 2012. (See here and here for starters.) In fact, ISIS is reportedly a joint effort created by the intelligence agencies of the U.S., United Kingdom and Israel, as ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi reportedly received military training from those three agencies as per recent Edward Snowden revelations.
Worse, as reports uncovered by Tony Cartalucci showed, “the U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia had planned as far back as 2007 to specifically use sectarian extremists to overrun and overthrow Syria.” ISIS, by the way, is the same group who are now crucifying Christians in Iraq.’
‘The downing of flight MH17 could become a turning point in the west’s economic relations with Russia. Since the Ukraine crisis flared up last year, sanctions have mostly been targeted at individuals and companies associated with Russia’s annexation of Crimea or those stirring up unrest in eastern Ukraine. The European Union extended these sanctions on Friday, adding 15 names and 18 organisations (mostly companies) to the list.
As it stands, the list includes Kremlin officials, separatists and state companies. But the game could change this week, when the EU is expected to unveil more sweeping “tier three” economic sanctions aimed at entire sections of the economy. This weekend, diplomats have been examining proposals to restrict Russian state-owned companies from accessing capital markets, impose an arms embargo, and issue an export ban on specialist energy technology and “dual use” equipment, such as computers and machinery, that can be put to both civilian and military uses.
The draft proposal notes pointedly that European leaders should decide whether the arms embargo should be retrospective, thus annulling France’s €1.2bn contract to deliver Mistral assault ships to Russia.’
‘Former high-level CIA officer Michael Scheuer – a 22-year CIA veteran who was the head of the CIA unit tasked with capturing or killing Bin Laden, the Chief of the Sunni Militant Unit, and served in both the Directorate of Intelligence and the Directorate of Operations (and Georgetown University professor at the Center for Security Studies) – had to know his jihadi enemies in order to track and defeat them.
Scheuer testified to the House Homeland Security Committee on October 9, 2013 on the real causes of Islamic jihad:’
‘Numerous high-level NSA whistleblowers say that NSA spying is about crushing dissent and blackmailing opponents … not stopping terrorism.
In addition, the NSA is giving the raw data on American citizens living in the U.S. to Israel. That doesn’t seem to be a good strategy for protecting America from terrorism.
Newly-published Snowden documents also show that the NSA is helping one of the world’s most brutal and repressive dictatorships – Saudi Arabia – to crush dissent.’
‘Khuza’a is a village in the very eastern part of Khan Younis adjacent to the border fence in the southern Gaza strip. Its farmers have faced death almost on a daily basis in the past 7 years as Israeli gunfire has become the norm along the buffer zone between Gaza and Israel.
Following the Shuja’iyeh massacre, Israeli forces invaded Khuza’a with aerial strikes targeting any moving object. Survivors recall with horror that seemingly heavy random tank fire led to the killing of dozens, injuring dozens others.
Over 150 of its residents were arrested by Israeli forces. Most of them were released, others are still in detention. Rescue calls were made live on the local radio stations, as many residents were besieged in their homes, unable to leave. Those who managed to leave came under fire as they were fleeing.’
‘House investigators said Tuesday that the computer hard drive of ex-agency official Lois Lerner — a key figure in the IRS targeting scandal — was only “scratched,” not irreparably damaged, as Americans have been led to believe.
GOP-led Ways and Means Committee investigators, in their quest to recover missing Lerner emails, learned her hard drive was damaged but recoverable by talking to IRS information-technology experts, after the government originally refused to make them available, according to the committee.
“It is unbelievable that we cannot get a simple, straight answer from the IRS about this hard drive,” said committee Chairman Dave Camp.’
‘All your emails are belong to us.
At least that’s what the latest court order from a judge in New York says. The warrant, granted on June 11, states that the government can access all the content and files contained in a Gmail account.
Yes, this is a significant blow to privacy.’
‘Dozens of scientific papers have been pulled from a prominent international journal after an investigation revealed that they were all illicitly passed through the peer-review process. All 60 studies, explains a recent announcement by the independent academic publishing group SAGE, were the product of a covert “peer review ring” involving phony peer reviewers that were completely fabricated and non-existent.
All of the studies had been published in the Journal of Vibration and Control (JVC) by a Taiwanese professor named Peter Chen, who at the time worked for the National Pingtung University of Education (NPUE). Chen allegedly created a number of aliases in the SAGE Track system, which he then used to peer review his own papers as if he were other people.’
‘Why are genetically modified organisms (GMOs) a serious threat to humanity and the environment? The reasons span the realms of science, social justice, economics and the environment, and once you understand this, you’ll readily understand why so many environmentalists, humanitarians, responsible scientists and social justice advocates are strongly opposed to GMOs.
Here are the top 10 ways GMOs threaten us all:’
‘Because there’s no real way to dispute the fundamental moral bankruptcy of neoliberalism without it, the rhetorical trick of blaming the victim is never too far from the surface of American society, regardless of the subject. In pop culture, we hear it when ESPN blowhards indict women for their partners’ violence.
In foreign policy, we see it when Wall Street Journal Op-Eds blame Palestinian children for the IDF’s bombs. And in the realm of domestic policy, the blame-the-victim logic is so widespread that I struggle to think of even one major political debate in which it isn’t being pushed by Republicans or Democrats. Often, it’s both.’
‘In a provocative and reckless move, the Dutch and Australian governments are pressing for the stationing of police and soldiers at the Malaysian Airlines MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine. Using the pretext of “securing” the site for investigators, an armed force hostile to the pro-Russian separatists who control the area is being planted in the midst of an active civil war close to the Russian border.
There is nothing benign about what Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott described yesterday as “a humanitarian mission” with “one purpose and one purpose only” which was to “bring our people home.” While declaring that he did not “want to get into the politics of Eastern Europe, Abbott continued to blame pro-Russian militia for downing MH17. The site, he said, “is controlled by armed men with a vested interest in the outcome of any investigation.”’
‘One thing to be said for the women now heading the Federal Reserve and the IMF: compared to some of their predecessors, they are refreshingly honest. The Wall Street Journal reported on July 2nd:
Two of the world’s most powerful women of finance sat down for a lengthy discussion Wednesday on the future of monetary policy in a post-crisis world: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. Before a veritable who’s-who in international economics packing the IMF’s largest conference hall, the two covered all the hottest topics in debate among the world’s central bankers, financiers and economists.
Among those hot topics was the runaway shadow banking system, defined by Investopedia as “The financial intermediaries involved in facilitating the creation of credit across the global financial system, but whose members are not subject to regulatory oversight. The shadow banking system also refers to unregulated activities by regulated institutions.” Examples given include hedge funds, derivatives and credit default swaps.’
‘Recent events has enabled Western governments, Israel and the mainstream media (MSM) to launch a propaganda crusade against Russia and Palestine. They accused the Russian government and the Anti-Kiev militias in East Ukraine for its direct involvement in the downing of Malaysian Airlines MH-17 without any hard evidence to support their claim. US intelligence agencies did admit that Russia was not directly linked to the Malaysian Airlines incident, but they managed to blame Russia indirectly.
They claimed “that Russia was responsible for “creating the conditions” that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement” according to ABC news. The accusations against Russia were baseless. What is important to the families of the Malaysian Airlines tragedy is for them to find out the truth about those responsible for the crimes. Blaming actors who are not responsible for the crime will not bring peace to the families.’
‘The blatant aggression against the Gaza Strip we are witnessing affects anyone who has a heart, as Israel’s destruction and barbarism are unprecedented and worse than any I have seen in my life. The horror of today’s attacks is incomparable with any of the raids and wars against the Gaza Strip over the past 50 years. The bombing raids being carried out by Israeli warplanes on the Gaza Strip, as well as the missiles being launched on the homes and farms of innocent civilians, are the latest by the “death industry” of the rogue state. With the war crimes it has committed, as well as its international law and human rights law violations, Israel has gone beyond any international condemnations, reactions and denouncements issued against its non-stop aggression. The latest of such condemnations by the UN were stated in the Goldstone Report after Operation Cast Lead in 2008/2009.’
‘Al-Qassam Brigades, which is the military wing of Hamas, says Palestinian resistance fighters have killed at least 90 Israeli soldiers over the past 20 days.
Palestinian fighters say over 90 Israeli forces have been killed in the ongoing offensive against the besieged Palestinian enclave. Based on Israeli media reports, at least 142 soldiers are in hospital, one of them in critical condition.’
‘Egypt has demolished 13 more tunnels between the country and the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for the past seven years.
The army said on Sunday that it had destroyed the tunnels in the Sinai Peninsula, but did not say when they were demolished.
The tunnels are the only lifeline for Palestinians living under the Israeli siege and Egypt has so far laid waste to 1,639 of them.’
‘Turkish prosecutors have charged 20 police officers with forging official documents and illegally eavesdropping on top officials, including Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
According to a Saturday report by Turkey’s Dogan news agency, at least 20 former police officers have been indicted since Friday and remanded in custody pending a possible trial.
The report added that former Istanbul police intelligence chief Ali Fuat Yilmazer was separately charged with “forming and running a criminal gang” among other offences.’
‘Canadians have taken to the streets in the capital, Ottawa, to protest against Israel’s onslaught on the Gaza Strip and against Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s support for the Israeli regime.
Some 500 protesters marched on Saturday through the capital toward Parliament Hill, voicing their anger at Harper and calling for an end to Israel’s war on Gaza.
Demonstrators held signs, banners and Palestinian flags and chanted “Free, free Gaza. Shame, shame Harper.”’
