‘Forty major terror plots against Britain have been thwarted since the 7/7 bombings, Theresa May revealed today.
Mumbai-style mass killings and a plan to blow up the London stock exchange are among the murderous plots averted by spooks since July 2005, the Home Secretary said.
In a major speech ahead of the unveiling of her new Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill on Wednesday, Mrs May claimed Britain is now at greater risk of a terror attack than at any point in its history.’
‘A former Surrey Comet news editor was gagged by the Government over the reporting of an alleged Westminster paedophile ring operating out of Elm Guest House in Barnes.
Hilton Tims, 82, the paper’s news editor between 1980 and 1988, revealed at the weekend he had been handed a D-notice preventing the reporting of sex allegations in 1984.
Elm Guest House, in Rocks Lane, is at the centre of the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Fernbridge, which is investigating claims of sexual abuse and grooming of children by Government ministers, MPs and senior police officers in the late 1970s and early 80s.’
‘The St Louis suburb of Ferguson was once again gripped by violent protests last night, after a grand jury chose not to bring charges against Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot dead Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, on 9 August.
Buildings and cars were torched, businesses looted and the sound of gunfire punctuated the febrile atmosphere at regular intervals as demonstrators and armoured police clashed across parts of the city following the announcement at 8pm local time.
Tear gas and rubber bullets were fired by police, while a Walgreens pharmacy and a Little Caesars pizza place were both gutted by fire. A public storage facility, petrol stations and other restaurants were also set ablaze.’
‘“The most important” part of Rand Paul’s assessment of “questions of war,” the Kentucky senator told The Daily Beast this fall, is “how you go to war.” Now he’s putting that assessment into action with a plan to introduce a declaration of war against ISIS in the Senate next month.
The move is part of Paul’s ongoing campaign to position himself as a foreign-policy heavyweight ahead of the Republican presidential primaries, when he is expected to mount a campaign for the nomination. But it may simply be dismissed as a tit-for-tat gesture as Republicans complain of executive overreach in the aftermath of President Obama’s executive order on immigration.
As Obama is hit with charges of overstepping his power, Paul’s resolution could be perceived as an attempt to strike back in another conflict: the now 200-year-old war between the executive and legislative branches of government. The senator’s resolution would turn on its head the traditional process by which presidents lead the United States into conflict and Congress says, “Sure, why not?”’
‘The Home Office has been condemned after it renewed a private security giant’s contract to run a controversial women’s immigration detention centre where staff have been accused of sexual misconduct.
The decision to pay £70m to Serco to operate Yarl’s Wood in Bedfordshire over the next eight years was attacked by MPs, refugee groups and penal reformers.Yarl’s Wood, Britain’s largest detention centre for women facing deportation, has suffered a succession of damaging allegations since Serco began managing the facility in 2007.
As well as the sexual misconduct claims, they include accusations that women have been locked up for long spells and pregnant detainees held without justification.’
‘A mysterious ‘beam’ of static electricity has been caught on camera making a passer-by’s hair stand on end.
In the clip, filmed outside Google’s headquarters in London, Simon Legrand is shown entering the field of electricity before his hair rises – silhouetted by a nearby street lamp.
As the camera then pans towards the building, a large crack of static electricity is heard before the video cuts out.’
‘The French Polynesia Assembly is preparing to ask Francois Holland’s government for nearly a billion dollars in compensation for damage caused to the islands by nuclear weapons tests.
Conservative anti-independence Tahoera’a Huiraatira party committee has apparently taken issue with the French testing regime that saw 210 nuclear tests conducted from 1966 to 1996 off secluded atolls in the south Pacific.
The committee, which is acting independently of Polynesian President Edouard Fritch, is asking for 930 million US dollars for environmental damage, according to daily Polynesian newspaper La Depeche de Tahiti.’
‘Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said equality between men and women is “against nature” at a summit in Istanbul.
He sparked outrage with the speech made at a convention organised by women’s groups campaigning to eliminate gender discrimination in all its forms.
“You cannot make women and men equal; this is against nature,” Mr Erdoğan told the meeting full of women including his own daughter, Today’s Zaman reported.’
‘In this Al Etejah’s Panorama program Gilad Atzmon elaborates on the dominance of Jewish lobby in the UK and America and the weak resistance it meets in both Britain and the USA. The activity of the Lobby clearly undermines the notion of Western democracy. We also spoke about the collapse of Left politics and future of Western thinking.’
‘Gun control advocates are demanding a toy gun ban after Cleveland, Ohio, police killed a child who was carrying an airsoft pistol on a playground.
While many are asking why the police didn’t act with more caution on Saturday when dealing with the boy, 12-year-old Tamir Rice, others are instead calling for a ban on toy guns.
“Why are these toy guns produced?” Alexander A. tweeted. “We need laws that prohibit that type of ‘toy.’”’
‘A report from the World Bank Group has claimed that the world must brace itself for more extreme weather, as it is locked on a path to unstoppable warming.
They say some effects of climate change will be unavoidable owing to past and predicted emissions from power plants, factories and cars.
But they say the worst impacts could be avoided by cutting global emissions.’
‘Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has warned it would be a “grave mistake” for the French parliament to follow the suit of several other European nations in recognizing a Palestinian state in a vote scheduled early December.
“Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake,” Netanyahu told reporters in Jerusalem. “Do they have nothing better to do at a time of beheadings across the Middle East, including that of a French citizen?” apparently referring to Herve Gourdel executed by Algerian jihadists in September.’
‘‘Empire of Chaos’ was the debate topic on RT International’s CrossTalk today. Always a hotly contested subject when diverse opinions are brought together for a round table discussion.
Sparks began to fly on air however, when 21WIRE’s Henningsen begins to challenge Washington DC foundation staffer Carafano’s establishment narrative about the true state of the geopolitical scene in 2014. Luckily, CrossTalk’s veteran host (and referee) Peter Lavelle was on hand to maintain a semblence of order.’
‘The surveillance society is a secretive apparatus of intrusion and deception. An enigma within a disinformation perception of reality is at the core all activities of spooks. One of the most pervasive and all reaching agencies is the NSA. The National Security Administration officially is a cryptologic intelligence agency whose primary function is Signals Intelligence Directorate (SID), which produces foreign signals intelligence information, and the Information Assurance Directorate (IAD), which protects U.S. information systems. The General Accounting Office defines the nature of the structure of the NSA.’
‘Your entire existence…all matter, all life, all experiences–everything owes its existence in the physical world to frequency. Absolutely everything is frequency. You cannot have an experience on this planet without attracting it through frequency. Every emotion, including love and hate tunes into a specific frequency. Health has a frequency. Disease has frequency. Your organs are each tuned to a specific frequency as is your entire body which resonates at its own frequency.
You are a symphony of frequencies while you project yourself through this universe and create your physical reality. You are a master of your energy, and thus you are able to control everything you are, everything you do, everything you experience. From the day you are born until the day you die, nothing will ever change the fact that you are both a frequency emitter and receiver in flux with your internal and external environment.
DNA possesses two structural characteristics of fractal antennas, electronic conduction and self symmetry. Electrical conduction allows the movement of electrically charged particles within the body and that flow produces our life force.’
‘“We enter the world with something and leave with something.”
That’s pretty cut-and-dried. Is it true? Could it be that the precious little baby with the unique spirit came in with zero, zilch, nothing? Could it be that the old woman, no longer breathing, ends right there – zero, zilch, ‘is no more’?
Of course not… and I’m confident you don’t think so either. We inherit memories and we remember feelings, we watch ourselves, we observe nature, we think and study and experiment following an inner guide, and we look inside through meditation. No one has to tell us to live like we’re eternal… it just seems to be hardwired. Who would believe that birth is the beginning and death the end. Not me… not Consciousness.’
‘It will not shock readers to hear that quite often legislation on Capitol Hill is not as advertised. When Congress wants to do something particularly objectionable, they tend give it a fine-sounding name. The PATRIOT Act is perhaps the best-known example. The legislation had been drafted well before 9/11 but was going nowhere. Then the 9/11 attacks gave it a new lease on life. Politicians exploited the surge in patriotism following the attack to reintroduce the bill and call it the PATRIOT Act. To oppose it at that time was, by design, to seem unpatriotic.
At the time, 62 Democrats voted against the Act. On the Republican side there were only three no votes: former Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH), former Rep. Butch Otter (R-ID), and myself.’
‘Does the sun feel hot on your face? It is. The UV radiation that we are all being exposed to is off the charts. It’s actually burning the bark off of trees on the sun exposed sides. This is happening in countless regions. Global climate engineering is shredding the ozone layer along with an endless list of other horrific consequences. If climate engineering continues, our days are numbered.
How high is the UV radiation? View the actual tests in the video below.’
‘Awareness continues to increase surrounding the pervasive dangers of Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs). Our modern world is becoming an electromagnetic soup filled with pulses, radio frequencies, computer screens, wireless signals, as well as personal devices such as cell phones and gadgets that are emitting damaging radiation.
There are many peer-reviewed scientific studies drawing conclusions that should concern us all, but particularly for young children and pregnant women. Government agencies are even doing battle amongst themselves over outdated scientific information that still impacts current regulations.
A prominent neuroscientist recently went on record in a lecture to the medical community which gave strong credence to the concerns of everyday citizens. A world-renown biochemist joined the chorus of warnings, and went as far as to say that wireless radiation is a biohazard and should be abolished in certain settings.’
‘In the past five years, more Utahns have been killed by police than by gang members.
Or drug dealers. Or from child abuse.
And so far this year, deadly force by police has claimed more lives — 13, including a Saturday shooting in South Jordan — than has violence between spouses and dating partners.
As the tally of fatal police shootings rises, law enforcement watchdogs say it is time to treat deadly force as a potentially serious public safety problem.’
‘The ruling comes soon after a Court of Appeal ruling that a separate rendition case involving Abdul-Hakim Belhaj should be heard in the British courts.
In 2011, the 48-year-old Belhaj attempted to sue the UK government over claims he was illegally rendered to Libya and tortured. His claim was struck down in 2013, but last month the Court of Appeal ruled that the case could go ahead.
Mercer also noted that the UK’s Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) is still refusing to investigate other allegations of rendition by the UK in Iraq.’
‘Pacificorp is the latest energy company to sue in an effort to prevent research information about their company from being shared with the press. The Associated Press is doing a story on their industry and has asked for information from the government to support their story, and Pacificorp has filed a lawsuit, saying such disclosure would cause their company irreparable harm. This might sound like any story about any energy company, but there’s one big twist in this case.’
‘Zionist activists have urged British MPs to implement new legislation that police could use to stop non-violent, pro-BDS protests.
Manchester-based group North-West Friends of Israel have urged politicians to give police more power to stop boycotts of businesses by pro-Palestine solidarity activists.
As cited in a report by The Jewish Chronicle, the group’s co-chair Anthony Dennison wants the Public Order Act amended “to allow police to halt non-violent protests, if they disrupted ‘the lawful right of customers and shops to trade’.”
Dennison commented: “Peaceful protest can be intimidating, if demonstrators are stood outside a shop, holding placards with horrible images, are customers really going into that shop?”‘
‘Egyptian President Abdul-Fattah Al-Sisi told an Italian newspaper that his country is ready to send troops to Palestine in order to guarantee Israel’s security and work jointly against terrorism.
In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Al-Sisi said: “We are prepared to send military forces inside a Palestinian state. They would help the local police and reassure Israelis in their role as guarantors.”
The former military general stressed that any such troop deployment would only be for the time needed to restore trust between the two sides.’
‘A showdown over vaccinations has erupted in a Long Island town after the mother of an 8-year-old was told by her doctor that a new school district rule requires children to get a booster shot at too young an age.
Ceili McNicholas was expelled from Long Island’s Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach School last week after her mother Jamie refused to let her receive the Tdap booster, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.
McNicholas said her daughter’s doctor wouldn’t administer the shot, which is a new requirement of the Miller Place Union Free School District, because it’s recommended only for children over 10 years old.’
‘Psychiatric drugs are more dangerous than you have ever imagined. If you haven’t been prescribed one yet, you are among the lucky few. If you or a loved one are taking psychiatric drugs, there is hope; but you need to understand the dangers and how to minimize the risk.
The following overview focuses on longer-term psychiatric drug hazards, although most of them can begin to develop within weeks. They are scientifically documented in my recent book Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal and my medical text Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, Second Edition.’
‘Few Americans want to actually believe that their country, increasingly, is becoming an authoritarian police state, but more and more are realizing that that is precisely what is happening. We feel it in our gut as we see it with our own eyes, because we are treated to example after example on a daily basis.
For instance, who among us would have believed 10, 20 or 30 years ago that someday police departments — which are sworn to “protect and serve” their respective publics — would adopt property-seizure policies based primarily on the needs of the department? And yet, as The New York Times reports, that is precisely what an increasing number of local agencies are doing:’
‘The big biotechnology secret that you’ll probably never about in the mainstream media is the shocking number of suicides that occur when genetically modified organisms (GMOs) fail to provide the promised yields and cost savings. Some 300,000 farmers just in India have committed suicide within the past 16 years, according to a shocking report by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ), the direct result of crop failures that led to lost livelihoods.
According to the report, entitled Every Thirty Minutes: Farmer Suicides, Human Rights, and the Agrarian Crisis in India, nearly 20,000 Indian farmers end their lives every year after crop failures leave them stricken with insurmountable debt. These farmers were promised higher yields and lower chemical costs, but in many cases the exact opposite of this is what actually occurs.’
‘As a general rule, I try not to write about hypocrisy in politics. It’s such a constant, such a fact of life, that it can feel a bit like complaining about traffic or the weather.
But just as there’s a difference between waiting an extra 20 minutes during rush hour and being stranded in your car for five days — or between a typical snowstorm and what’s happening currently in Buffalo — there’s a difference between the routine hypocrisy of politics and the kind we saw this week from Republicans in the House. One kind is an annoyance to be quickly forgotten; the other leaves a mark.
Before getting into why they’re so egregious, however, let’s pause to recap the Congressional GOP’s recent machinations.’
‘Civilians and nongovernmental organizations in Mexico found four more mass graves Sunday, as part of the search efforts to locate the 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training College that went missing after being detained by Iguala police on the night of September 26.
Since that date, more than 15 mass graves and dozens of bodies have been found. However, none of the remains found as of yet have been linked to the missing students.
The most recent mass graves were found in La Laguna, just west of Iguala, the place where federal authorities say police officers shot at several buses that were transporting the students, killing three of them along with another three civilians, before handing over the survivors to a local gang.’
‘In a U.N. vote, on November 21st, only three countries — the United States, Ukraine, and Canada — voted against a resolution to condemn racist facsism, or “nazism,” and to condemn denial of Germany’s World War II Holocaust primarily against Jews.
This measure passed the General Assembly, on a vote of 115 in favor, 3 against, and 55 abstentions (the abstentions were in order not to offend U.S. President Obama, who was opposed to the resolution).
The measure had been presented to their General Assembly after a period of more than a decade of rising “neo-Nazi” (i.e., racist-fascist) movements in Europe, including especially in Ukraine, where two Ukrainian nazi parties were installed by the U.S. into high posts in Ukraine’s new government, immediately after the democratically elected Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych was overthrown in a violent coup in Kiev during February of this year.’
‘President Barack Obama has authorized the US military to carry out far more widespread air and ground operations in Afghanistan in 2015, effectively reversing his order to end combat actions this year, White House officials told the New York Times.
In a report published Saturday, the Times gave details of the new authority, citing unnamed sources in both the White House and Pentagon, in what amounts to an official leak of the expanded battle plan for the Afghanistan war.
In an announcement delivered in the White House Rose Garden in May, Obama said the US military would end combat operations in Afghanistan by December 31 and the remaining 9,800 troops would be limited to training Afghan forces and conducting strikes against “the remnants of Al Qaeda,” previously estimated to be fewer than 100 people in Afghanistan.’
‘Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was supposed to steer the Pentagon away from a decade of war, including bringing US troops home from Afghanistan and paving the way for a reduction in the Pentagon budget. Instead, the Obama administration has opted for remaining in Afghanistan, continuing the disastrous drone wars in Pakistan and Yemen, and dragging our nation into another round of military involvement in Iraq, as well as Syria. The ISIL crises have also been used as a justification for not cutting the Pentagon budget, as required by sequestration.
The issue facing this nation is not who replaces Hagel, but what policy decisions we want to Pentagon to implement.’
‘Malagasy officials have raised the death toll from a recent bubonic plague outbreak to 47 as the bacterial disease spreads through the country.
Madagascar’s Health Ministry made the announcement on Monday, and warned that the toll would probably rise over the coming months as it spreads towards the capital Antananarivo.
They added that 138 suspect cases have been recorded since the beginning of the year. The ministry went on to say that it is attempting to contain the outbreak by disinfection of residents’ ‘homes.
‘Turkey plans to train 2,000 militants fighting in Syria at a military base in the central Turkish city of Kirsehir as part of a deal with the US, the Turkish Foreign Ministry confirms.
According to the agreement, Turkish troops will train militants of the so-called Free Syrian Army while the US will provide them with equipment.
This came after US Vice President Joe Biden made a visit to Turkey over the weekend to discuss Turkey’s role in the US-led military coalition against the ISIL terrorist group operating in Syria and Iraq.’
