‘The Islamic militant group ISIS [also known as ISIL], formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called “Islamic State”, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical killers on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari’ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.
Would it interest you to know who helped these psychopaths rise to power? Would it interest you to know who armed them, funded them and trained them? Would it interest you to know why?’
‘A leader of the foreign-backed Syrian opposition has visited injured militants being treated at a hospital in the Israeli town of Dafed.
Kamal al-Labwani, who lives in exile in Turkey, said militants fighting President Bashar al-Assad will never forget what he called Tel Aviv’s humanitarian support.
Al-Labwani, of the so-called Syrian National Coalition (SNC), also emphasized that anti-government forces in Syria see Israel as a friend.
Syrian anti-government leader is scheduled to meet Israeli authorities during his ongoing trip.’
‘Isis (now known as the Islamic State) has released a haunting video that shows John Cantlie, a British hostage and former war reporter for a number of British newspapers, pledging to expose the “truth behind the Islamic State”.
“Over the next few programmes, I am going to show you the truth as the Western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State,” he says.
The former reporter for The Sunday Times, The Sun and The Sunday Telegraph speaks in an orange jumpsuit behind a table in the three-minute video entitled Lend Me Your Ears.’
‘The US Central Intelligence Agency is frustrated for being asked to train the ISIL terrorist group and at the very same time to combat it, a former CIA contractor says.
Steven D. Kelley made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California, on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the US House approved President Barack Obama’s strategy to train and arm “moderate” militants in Syria to tackle the threat of ISIL. The Pentagon plans to train and arm 5,000 militants in Syria as part of the Obama administration’s long-term strategy to confront ISIL.’
‘Rebels fighting against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria are suspected of sabotaging a batch of measles vaccinations – leading to the deaths of up to 50 young children.
Dozens of infants in the rebel-held cities of Jarjanaz and Sinjar in Idlib province died on Tuesday minutes after being given the drug.
Although the cause of death has not yet been established, officials reportedly suspect the vaccines may have been tampered with while left unguarded in a storage facility in Jarjanaz.’
‘In Dundee, a strong YES area, the count was suspended twice due to fire alarms.
The turnout in the strong YES area of Dundee was 78.8%, which is lower than the 85% turnout in Scotland as a whole
In Dundee, ‘Yes’ ballot papers were spotted on a ‘No’ table.’
‘Police at the Emirates Stadium in the Scottish city said they were investigating possible cases of double vote impersonation where people pretend to be someone else, cast a vote and then the real person later turns up to vote again.
Colin Edgar, spokesman for the Counting Officer, said: “What appears to have happened is somebody has arrived at the polling station and given their name and asked to vote.
“The polling clerk has gone to cross off their name and it appears that they have already voted, so what we did was contact the police straight away.’
‘President Barack Obama has declined to supply Ukraine with “lethal aide” despite the passionate plea for more military equipment that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko made to Congress earlier on Thursday.
During a White House meeting between the two leaders that occurred after Poroshenko’s address to Congress, President Obama said the United States would keep working to mobilize the international community in order for the conflict in Ukraine to be solved diplomatically, Reuters reports.
Following the meeting, Poroshenko said he was pleased with Washington’s help, and expressed hope that the shaky ceasefire in Ukraine would eventually lead to stability and peace.’
‘According to mainstream science the Ebola virus was first isolated in 1976 during outbreaks of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (then Zaire) and Southern Sudan. The outbreaks occured solely in Africa.
Interestingly, in 1989 an outbreak of hemorrhagic fever occured in a research laboratory in Reston, USA among laboratory macaque monkeys. Tissue samples from dead animals were sent to the infamous bio-weapons laboratory of the United States, the Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, Maryland, where laboratory tests showed antibodies to Ebola virus.
Researchers concluded it was another strain of Ebola, or a new filovirus of Asian origin, which they named Reston ebolavirus (REBOV) after the location of the incident. The World Health Organisation classifies the Ebola virus as a Risk Group 4 pathogen, which is the highest of 4 levels.’
‘The decision by US President Barack Obama to dispatch 3,000 troops to West Africa to fight the Ebola epidemic has sparked reactions in Liberia.
“We don’t need guns to protect us for now. What we need now is drugs. We need vaccine to curtail the spread of this virus. So it is unfortunate to hear that America is sending over 3,000 troops,” one Liberian citizen said.
“If it is an armed troop then I will start to question myself whether this virus can be fought by guns or so,” said another Liberian.
On Tuesday, Obama described the Ebola epidemic in West Africa as a threat to the entire world.’
‘Medical martial law has now been declared in Sierra Leone while the government conducts a house-to-house hunt for Ebola victims who are being treated like “medical fugitives.”
“Sierra Leone ordered its 6 million people confined to their homes for three days starting Friday,” declared the Associated Press today.
The outlandish cover story for this medical quarantine operation that will invade the homes of private citizens in an Ebola victim fugitive hunt is that volunteers will be handing out bars of soap. As the AP reports:’
‘In a crowded courtroom in downtown Detroit, the onetime prominent cancer doctor stood before the judge.
With his hands cuffed and his head lowered, the man in the bright red jail suit made a surprise move.
Dr. Farid Fata, who was charged with intentionally misdiagnosing healthy people with cancer and pumping dying patients with chemo to make money, pleaded guilty.’
‘The season premiere of the Blaze TV’s For the Record claims that top Clinton aides at the State Department—including Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff during her time as secretary of state—were directly involved with blocking investigations by the department’s Diplomatic Security Service.’
‘Head of children’s services Joyce Thacker has faced fierce criticism over the systemic failure to prevent youngsters from being raped, beaten and trafficked by gangs of Asian men but has repeatedly resisted high-level calls for her to resign her executive position.
Pressure increased for her to either step-down or be sacked after South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright finally quit on Monday.
But it has now emerged that career politician Mrs Thacker has been off work since Mr Wright’s resignation was announced – denounced as a “fudge” by critics who called for the council boss to quit – or be sacked.’
‘When the novelist Emile Zola fled his native France in order to escape a politically motivated jail sentence, he settled at the Queens Hotel in the leafy South London suburb of Upper Norwood.
The hotel had been built at the same time as the Crystal Palace, that glittering symbol of Victorian achievement, which dominated the local skyline; with an imposing Italianate frontage and luxurious interior, Zola’s home-in-exile reflected that same national confidence.
Today, a blue plaque marks the writer’s residence there. Yet while the listed exterior maintains a superficial grandeur, the Queens Hotel has become a symbol not of Victorian pride and Britain’s historic tolerance towards the genuinely oppressed, but the squalid exploitation and near collapse of the overwhelmed modern asylum system.’
‘The Archbishop of Canterbury has admitted to feeling doubts over the existence of God.
In a recent interview at Bristol Cathedral, Archbishop Justin Welby said on a recent morning run with his dog he had questioned why God had failed to intervene to prevent injustice.
“The other day I was praying over something as I was running and I ended up saying to God ‘Look this is all very well but isn’t it about time you did something – if you’re there.’”’
‘Revellers will have to be breathalysed to get into nightclubs this weekend as part of a national campaign against binge drinking.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) is backing a new scheme which will see members of the public have to take a breath test before entering night-time venues in Loughborough this Friday and Saturday evening if they appear to be intoxicated.
Anyone who gives a reading of more than twice the drink-drive limit will be refused entry by door staff, who have been trained by police to administer the checks using equipment normally used for roadside breath tests.’
‘Here we have a school that has a policy, not with safety in mind – only as an afterthought – but one that hinges on strict adherence to said policy. Two students were given two different school-prepared lunches. One of the lunches was obviously inadequate, so the classmate gave of his own plate – and was met with detention.’
‘Bill Gates is continuing “God’s work” in India. By using the new affluence of social networking to exhale the old affluence of social custom and belief. Researchers applying the program are seeking to categorize people and collect information on them about who they trust when it comes to healthcare.
When it comes to forceful health initiatives, especially those sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – India is the new Africa. Yet another Gates-funded initiative seeks to use influence, ferret out true believer health officials, leverage their influence for social manipulation, paint the culture as uneducated and convince them to “get with the health program.”‘
‘The full implementation of Agenda 21 is nearing completion as the global Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations are set on a 2015 timeline. There are already many hints available at the wide-scale transformation set to take place, as multiple locations in the United States continue doing battle with the arrival of sweeping bureaucratic code enforcement.
Agenda 21 is a U.N.-directed action plan that has so many tentacles, it is often difficult to see this creature in its entirety. Essentially, using the threat of climate change and overpopulation as core global concerns, a mountain of new regulations forcing local communities to adopt global directives will usher in global governance literally from the ground up.’
‘The other day I went to the veggie store and I was looking at the tomatoes. They have three kinds:
First kind is more or less the same. They look the same, have the same size, and same color. Industrialized, clone, replica like. Second kind they call plum tomatoes here. They were more or less the same also. No diversity in color or shape or size. Then the third kind, which they call beef tomatoes, were all very different. Different sizes, different colors, different individual weight and such.
I was going for the diverse ones. Then I thought, I´ll check their ‘field’, the etheric or their Prana – life force. Number one and two had a small grayish field around them; the beef tomatoes were vibrating outwards and their field ended in an orange colored line in the air. Their field was silver like and pulsing.’
‘Questions are being asked about a strange communications tower disguised as a tree which was discovered by a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina after media reports of fake cellphone towers popping up across the country which are being used at surveillance devices.
The tower is not listed as being operated by any of the major telecommunications firms, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile or Cricket – and the firm that built the tower is refusing to answer questions as to who operates it and for what purpose.’
‘Uruguay’s José Mujica lives in a tiny house rather than the presidential palace, and gives away 90% of his salary. He’s legalised marijuana and gay marriage. But his greatest legacy is governing without giving up his revolutionary ideals.’
‘Ireland’s economy is growing at an explosive pace not seen since the glory days of the Celtic Tiger, setting off a scramble for Dublin property.
Finance minister Michael Noonan said GDP surged 7.7pc in the year to June as rising exports to the US, Britain and China transform the former crisis-state into the eurozone’s star economy, reaching “escape velocity” as the rest of the currency bloc languishes in a slump.
Gross national product — a better gauge of Ireland’s internal economy – grew by 9pc, an astonishing pace for a mature industrial state. The turnaround comes less than a year after Ireland regained economic sovereignty, the first of the eurozone bail-out countries to emerge from its EU-IMF Troika regime.’
‘How did the powerful gain power over the rest of us? In a time when the power and freedom of the average American is being eroded at terrific speed, many of us wonder how this could be happening. What we may not realize it that the powerful have specific tools or principles to use to con the rest of us into surrendering our power to them. One of the most effective principles used in the last several years with great success is the Hegelian Principle.
The principle is simple, consisting of only three steps toward a preconceived goal. Once you are able to see how it works, you may want to analyze many of the events unfolding around you in terms of this principle. As the principle is often used today, it can be explained as:’
‘Today a federal appeals court rebuked police in Orange County, Florida, for mounting a warrantless, SWAT-style raid on a barbership under the pretense of assisting state inspectors. “We have twice held, on facts disturbingly similar to those presented here, that a criminal raid executed under the guise of an administrative inspection is constitutionally unreasonable,” says the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. “We hope that the third time will be the charm.”‘
‘News emerged this week about a possible settlement between Monsanto and the farmers whose wheat was allegedly contaminated by unauthorized genetically modified seeds produced by the biotech firm. Lawyers for a contingent of soft white wheat farmers in Kansas told a Kansas City federal judge that an agreement had been reached in a class-action lawsuit between Monsanto and a group of wheat farmers in Oregon, where “zombie” GMO wheat contaminated fields last year, throwing off wheat exports in the process.
Monsanto acknowledged that an “agreement in principle has been reached, but not finalized,” and that court-ordered mediation with the farmers continues, according to spokesperson Charla Lord. Details of the reported deal are still being kept private.’
‘The NSA sent someone bearing the nametag “Neal Z.” to the University of New Mexico’s Engineering and Science Career Fair today, in the hopes of recruiting young computer geniuses to help manage the yottabytes of data it is collecting about you. But instead of eager young applicants, Mr. Z. encountered University of New Mexico alumnus Andy Beale and student Sean Potter, who took the rare opportunity of being in the room with a genuine NSA agent to ask him about his employer’s illegal collection of metadata on all Americans. Mr. Z. did not like that one bit.’
‘You never thought you would find yourself living in a society where 2 or 3 year-olds were legally high on amphetamines every day, did you? In a far beyond sick release of information, it has been revealed that toddlers can be prescribed amphetamines including, Ritalin, Adderall, and ‘ADHD medications’ legally.
There is no rule against it, and apparently some people do not have the moral depth to understand the consequences of giving amphetamines to a mind in a stage of development that early.’
‘When a ship from an Ebola-plagued nation docks on American shores with a crew full of sick passengers, by all means, we should bring them into the country and treat them.
But don’t worry – the CDC figured it was probably fine.’
‘SaskPower has announced that they are removing all the smart meters that were installed in the province.
The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan.
“I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough, anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly,” said Minister Boyd.’
‘Today a good deal of what qualifies as propaganda is much more subtle than overt. When an entire civilization or way of life is to be significantly altered the tried-and-true method of “repeating a lie until it becomes truth” needs to be done over a period of many years and in a multitude of varying ways to take hold and change the very assumptions and beliefs of a people.
This process is especially vital for reaching a given society’s more elite demographic—the opinion leaders who perceive themselves as “smarter than the average bear” and thus impervious to simple appeals and indoctrination.’
‘US Congressman Danny Davis (D-IL) has called for a lifting of the blockade against Gaza. In a September 8th letter to the Chicago Sun Times, one of the City’s two major daily newspapers, Davis urged an end to the blockade on humanitarian and strategic grounds. Congressman Davis now joins the only two other members of Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison and Rep. Barbara Lee, who have spoken out against the blockade.
Davis’ move is the result of a sustained effort by the Committee for Just Peace in Israel and Palestine (CJPIP), urging the Congressman to advocate for an end to the Israeli occupation and to stop military aid to Israel. For years our community-based organization and other constituents in his district have met periodically with Rep. Davis’ staff to educate them on the issues and to urge action.’
‘Thanks to a grassroots consumer advocacy group, one of the largest poultry producers in the Pacific Northwest has been exposed for committing hundreds of health and safety violations in less than just eight months.
Referred to by The New York Times as “one of the nation’s most powerful environmental groups,” the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) blew the whistle on Foster Farms’ operations after receiving documentation describing the company’s failure to meet and maintain federally mandated food standards.’
‘When former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) took a job with the investment bank Moelis & Co. earlier this month shortly after resigning his congressional seat, he became the latest example of the tight-knit relationship between Wall Street and Washington. In an interview, I called this out for what it is: another sign that the revolving door still spins freely in Washington. Cantor had little experience in financial services, and the value of people like him to Wall Street firms is influence peddling, plain and simple.’
‘Back in 2009, Kevin Evans was one of millions of Americans blindsided by the recession. His 25-year career selling office furniture collapsed. He shed the nice home he could no longer afford, but not a $7,000 credit card debt.
After years of spotty employment, Evans, 58, thought he’d finally recovered last year when he found a better-paying, full-time customer service job in Springfield, Mo. But early this year, he opened his paycheck and found a quarter of it missing. His credit card lender, Capital One, had garnished his wages. Twice a month, whether he could afford it or not, 25 percent of his pay — the legal limit — would go to his debt, which had ballooned with interest and fees to over $15,000.’
‘The U.S. financial position continues to deteriorate badly and in the last 12 months has increased by over $1 trillion dollars.
Nick Laird of Sharelynx has just reproduced his fascinating and timely chart showing the US debt limit, the actual US debt and the gold price all in one chart.
From 2000 until around the first quarter of 2013, there was a very strong and close correlation between the growth of the US national debt and the rise in the US dollar gold price.’
‘Argentina’s Foreign Ministry has accused the acting US ambassador of meddling in its internal affairs after inappropriate comments made on the South American country’s economy, Press TV reports.
On Tuesday, the Argentinean Foreign Ministry summoned Kevin Sullivan, the US ambassador to Buenos Aires, over inappropriate comments on the Latin American country’s failure to repay its debts to US companies.
“Our Foreign Ministry summoned Kevin Sullivan because we understand his statements were unfortunate and out of place, apart from being an undue interference in Argentina’s sovereignty,” Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said.’
‘In another move to “promote racism and discrimination”, the High court of Israel upholds a controversial law allowing Israelis to exclude Palestinians from the Jewish communities.
The law, upheld by the Israeli High Court of Justice on Wednesday, permits Israelis to keep Palestinians out of their communities.
Director of Adalah’s Land and Planning Rights Unit, Suhad Bishara, harshly criticized the move, saying that “The court’s decision upholds one of the most dangerous laws in Israel.”‘
‘Egypt’s prominent activist Alaa Abdel Fattah has demanded the scrapping of an anti-protest law that was imposed as part of a sweeping crackdown on opposition protesters.
Military-backed authorities in Egypt passed the controversial law last November. The law bans protests without security permissions, which are almost never granted. It also authorizes security forces to prevent any public gathering of more than 10 people.
Moreover, under the law, any protestor taking part in an unauthorized protest faces harsh prison penalties, which have gone up to 15 years in a number of cases.’
