‘An undercover cop probing VIP child abuse allegations at a gay sex parlour ended up raping a teenage boy, according to sensational new claims.
The victim, who was 16 at the time, has told how he was forced into sex work as a masseur at the Elm Guest House near Barnes in South West London in 1982.
Among the rich and powerful who he says abused him was disgraced former Liberal MP Cyril Smith.
Others said to frequent the guest house included a government minister, a high-ranking policeman, a member of the royal household, an MI5 officer and traitor spy Anthony Blunt.’
‘Former Co-op chairman Paul Flowers will be formally questioned about his role in an alleged ‘cover-up’ of appalling sex abuse at a school founded by paedophile MP Cyril Smith.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal the ex-Methodist minister faces an official inquiry into claims that he and others ignored a series of damning reports.
At the time, he was vice-chairman of Rochdale Council’s social services committee, which oversaw Knowl View School during a time it was described as ‘a sweet shop for paedophiles’.’
‘A Tory crony of David Cameron put in charge of a £60 billion quango was dramatically fired last night after it was revealed that he was declared bankrupt for not paying his taxes.
Mr Cameron was forced to act after a Mail on Sunday investigation into businessman Tony Caplin, who ran the Prime Minister’s family stockbroking firm and was Conservative Chief Operating Officer when Mr Cameron became party leader. The Prime Minister claimed he had no idea Caplin had been declared bankrupt.
Anti-sleaze rules say anyone on a public body who becomes bankrupt must inform the responsible Minister immediately. In some cases they face an instant ban.
Caplin was sacked in disgrace hours after this newspaper challenged Downing Street about the Prime Minister’s decision to put him in charge of the Public Works Loans Board (PWLB) – the Treasury body responsible for £60 billion worth of loans for infrastructure projects including homes, schools, hospitals, rail and roads – after the tycoon was declared bankrupt in 2012.’
‘Nick Clegg’s controversial taxpayer-funded election strategist was censured by a watchdog over his role in the awarding of a multi-million-pound contract.
Ryan Coetzee, who has been given the £110,000-a-year job of rescuing the Lib Dems’ plunging poll ratings, was accused of ‘maladministration’ in an official probe into suspected cronyism.
Mr Coetzee, who arrived at Westminster after nearly 20 years in South African politics, was at the centre of a pay row last week when it emerged that, unlike his rival Labour and Conservative election gurus, his salary comes from public rather than party funds.’
‘Ed Miliband is facing a Shadow Cabinet ‘cost of living’ revolt after spending more than £20,000 of public money taking ‘an army of aides’ on an overseas trip.
The Labour leader sparked anger among senior colleagues for sanctioning a three-day visit by a 12-strong delegation to Israel and the West Bank earlier this month.
Apart from Mr Miliband and his wife Justine, the party included no fewer than eight Labour officials as well as Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander and Labour peer Stewart Wood.’
‘Disgraced former Tory Shadow Minister Patrick Mercer could be the first MP in more than 60 years to be kicked out of the Commons without committing a criminal offence.
Parliamentary standards watchdogs are now considering demanding his expulsion over ‘grave’ new allegations against him breaching Commons rules.
The MP referred himself to the Commons standards committee after he was caught up in a cash-for-questions probe last year.
Newark MP Mr Mercer was accused of agreeing to set up a parliamentary group at the request of undercover reporters posing as lobbyists aiming to lift Fiji’s suspension from the Commonwealth.’
What would you think if Russia’s spy chief had been discovered last week, roaming round Ukraine? The British media would have been raging and howling about sinister Kremlin meddling.
Well, as far as I know, no such visit took place. But something just as astonishing did happen. John Brennan, Director of the CIA, was, in fact, in Kiev last week, and I do not think he was there for the nightlife.
It is, by any measure, a hugely interesting fact that such a person, who seldom ventures out at all, was in Ukraine at a moment of great tension. Yet the information was buried by British news media.
Last week, I asked several colleagues whom I know to be assiduous newspaper readers, interested in the world, savvy and alert, if they knew Mr Brennan had been in Kiev. Not one of them did.
Well, what else don’t we know? Here’s a hint. About three- quarters of what Russia is now doing in Ukraine is a bitter joke at the expense of the ‘West’. What we attack them for doing is what we have also done, in Yugoslavia and Ukraine.’
‘An attack on a Ukrainian National Guard base has reportedly left three pro-Russian militants dead and 13 wounded, on the same day world leaders prepare to discuss the ongoing crisis.
A band of around 300 men reportedly stormed a base in the Black Sea port of Mariupol armed with assault weapons, stun grenades and petrol bombs.
Soldiers inside the base fired warning shots, but this did not deter the attackers, Ukraine’s interior ministry said.
It claimed the Ukrainian troops suffered no casualties and took 63 separatists as prisoners.’
‘Spy chiefs have warned that any British or Western military action in Ukraine risks spiralling into an all-out war with Russia, reports the Sunday People.
The head of MI6, known as C, is understood to have told Prime Minster David Cameron that Russian President Vladimir Putin will not “stand idly by” if the West sends troops to support the Ukrainian government.
One senior source said: “The basic message is that it’s not worth starting World War Three over Ukraine.”’
‘The daughter of a wealthy Fifa delegate who helped in the controversial decision to name Qatar and Russia future hosts of the World Cup received a £2million payment from a business associate of her father with Qatari links, it has been claimed.
Antonia Wigand Teixeira, the daughter of Brazil’s Fifa representative Ricardo Teixeira, was paid the large sum of money in 2011.
It is not certain from whom the funds came, but it is thought that Sandro Rossell, the former president of Qatar-sponsored Barcelona football club, was behind the transfer.’
‘The Conservatives face being forced into third place in next month’s European Parliament elections, as up to half of Tory voters prepare to desert the party, an exclusive poll for The Telegraph has found.
Labour is currently in first place, with 30 per cent of the vote, while Ukip are second on 27 per cent. The Conservatives are a distant third on 22 per cent, according to the ICM survey of 2,000 adults.
The poll reveals how many of those who voted Conservative at the last general election will turn against the party next month – the first UK-wide poll since 2010.’
‘Email intercepts that included the original copies of anti-Semitic leaflets distributed in Eastern Ukraine have now been shown to be part of an elaborate false flag hoax to sabotage recent US-Russian talks.
The hoax, a “game theory warfare” operation, was meant to “sucker punch” both Russia and the US. If those responsible, in this case the New York based ADL, were caught, and they have been, there would be no consequences.
The ADL is “untouchable.” When Secretary of State Kerry expressed his revulsion at Nazi leaflets demanding that Jews in Ukraine “register” with a non-existent government agency, little did he know he was the victim of an elaborate and highly dangerous false flag hoax.’
‘Movie director Bryan Singer is being accused of drugging, raping and using his power as a Hollywood mogul to exploit a teenage boy in a lawsuit filed on April 16th. According to court documents, Singer
“manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries.”
The lawsuit then mentions a not-s0-well kept secret about Hollywood : There are powerful groups within the industry that uses power and influence to exploit minors.
“Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.”’
A few weeks ago we were told in the West that people occupying government buildings in Ukraine was a very good thing. These people, we were told by our political leaders and elite media commentators, were “pro-democracy protestors”.
The US government warned the Ukrainian authorities against using force against these ‘pro-democracy protestors’ even if, according to the pictures we saw, some of them were neo-Nazis who were throwing Molotov cocktails and other things at the police and smashing up statues and setting fire to buildings.
Now, just a few weeks later, we’re told that people occupying government buildings in Ukraine are not ‘pro-democracy protestors’ but ‘terrorists’ or ‘militants’.
Why was the occupation of government buildings in Ukraine a very good thing in January, but a very bad thing in April? Why was the use of force by the authorities against protestors completely unacceptable in January, but acceptable now?
I repeat: I’m confused. Can anyone help me?’
‘The waking up process is a very personal experience. Once we become aware of the existence of a fabricated world we thought to be real and that our true nature is anything but what we’ve been told, there’s no turning back.
It may appear to be a lonely path, but we are by no means alone in this awakening. It is happening in all walks of life. Whether a banker or corporate employee wakes up to the scam being perpetrated on humanity and pulls out of the matrix, or a normal taxpaying worker realizes they’re contributing to a military industrial machine hell bent on control and world domination, we’re all the same.
And those are just surface issues compared to the deliberate suppression of man’s innate spiritual nature, whether we call it social liberty or the freedom to create and manifest as we truly are.’
‘The fracking industry is having a bad week.
In the third asssessment in as many days focused on the pollution created by the booming industry, a group of researchers said Wednesday that the controversial oil and gas drilling practice known as fracking likely produces public health risks and “elevated levels of toxic compounds in the environment” in nearly all stages of the process.
The latest research, conducted by the Physicians Scientists & Engineers for Healthy Energy, compiled “the first systematic literature review” of peer-reviewed studies on the effects of fracking on public health and found the majority of research points to dangerous risks to public health, with many opportunities for toxic exposure.
“It’s clear that the closer you are [to a fracking site], the more elevated your risk,” said lead author Seth Shonkoff, from the University of California-Berkeley. “We can conclude that this process has not been shown to be safe.”’
‘Vast deposits of natural gas have driven a drilling boom stretching across 32 states.
The primary way of extracting the natural gas, known as hydraulic fracking, has been considered safe since a 2004 study by the Environmental Protection Agency found that it posed no risk to drinking water.
In 2005 the Bush administration and Congress used the study to justify legislation of the “Halliburton loophole,” which exempts hydraulic fracturing from Safe Drinking Water Act. Legislation also exempted the practice, used in 90 percent of U.S. natural gas wells, from the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act.
ProPublica investigations, however, found fracking to be the common thread in more than 1,000 cases of water contamination across seven states, including dozens of cases of well failures in which the concrete or steel meant to protect aquifers cracked under high pressure.’

‘The dumbing down of America is accelerating. A massive federal takeover of education known as “Common Core” is attempting to impose nationwide academic standards on public schools throughout the entire country. Thanks to the backing of billionaire Bill Gates, endless promotion by the U.S. Department of Education, and financial bribes to state governments by the Obama administration, 45 states and Washington, D.C. have already agreed to implement the full Common Core standards in their schools. Unfortunately, these “standards” are doing to public education what Obamacare is doing to our health care system – absolutely ruining it. Just look at how basic math instruction has changed. Posted below is a comparison between the “old method” of subtraction and the “new method” of subtraction being taught in many of our schools. When I first came across this on Facebook, I thought that it was a joke…’
‘Recently, Hillary Clinton allowed as how she’s been “thinking” about running for President in 2016.
“Thinking” about it? Even a six year old didn’t buy that.
When a politician says she (or he) is thinking about running, for an office, it’s like an addict saying they are “thinking,” about taking their next fix. They want it with a lust that is all-consuming.
The crowd cheered when she said it; the party seems to be teeing up issues like gender equality to facilitate it; and with the McCutcheon decision, the way seems paved for a DLC Democrat like Hillary to waltz into the nomination. And yes, gender equality is a critical issue, but don’t hold your breath looking for progress from Hillary. She’s likely to do as much for women, as Barack Obama has done for African Americans – which is to say damn little, other than a better brand of rhetoric.’
‘America has found itself in an untenable situation in the Ukraine. As the second day of military incursions by the coup backed Kiev government proceed in the East, the Obama administration has begun to realize that it has been “blindsided.”
A presidential candidate is beaten in the streets by neo-Nazi thugs and nothing is done. A government responsible for murdering over 100 of the protestors that backed their takeover is now moving military forces across their country to attack the “babushkas resistance,” the heart of the resistance to the Kiev cabal, led by Russian speaking grandmothers.
The US position is clearly unsound and if violence unfolds as Kiev intends despite stories of its forces switching sides, the Obama administration will be severely weakened.
With that weakening, the settlements with Syria and Iran may well fail.’
‘Rather than simply toss aside aging surveillance drones, the Pentagon has announced plans to use them as high-speed Wi-Fi hot spots for troops in remote regions of the world.
In a release dated April 7, the military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects agency (DARPA) stated it’s looking to mount older fleets of drones with wireless internet capable of transmitting one gigabyte of data per second, roughly the equivalent of modern 4G cellular networks.
According to Ars Technica, the agency will repurpose its fleet of RQ-7 Shadow Drones – originally deployed on surveillance missions in Iraq – so that they can be used to ensure troops in remote areas around the globe have the same access to mission data, intelligence, and information that other units do in more connected regions.’
‘In a video posted on YouTube today titled ‘You Won’t Believe What This Police Officer Says’, a man is seen getting a ticket from a police officer for sitting down in public. In the video, the police officer approaching the homeless man that was ‘illegally’ sitting down said, “Remember last week? We talked about you sitting down, you said you’d never been warned…You can’t sit in the alleys, you can’t sit in the streets, you can’t sit on the sidewalks in Denver.”
What has become a sort of war on the homeless that actually just makes it harder for people to get off the streets, homeless people across the nation are being targeted by authorities which are in the process of criminalizing homelessness. Buried under a paper bureaucracy which is often nearly impossible to get out from under, I’ve witnessed homeless people here in San Diego who literally have stacks of citations for merely sleeping on the streets. Add to that a ban on feeding homeless people in some areas and we have a largely ignored, but real problem on our hands.’
‘This season’s breakout hit on HBO was undoubtedly True Detective. The eight-episode series was a surprise hit for executive producers who are also the show’s stars, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and the show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto.
The eight episode season featured stellar acting and writing, but what surprised many viewers and helped make the show into a pop culture phenomenon, was the elaborate and grisly plot. The story features a powerful and mysterious Satanic-pagan cult comprised of U.S. Senators, pastors and police brass, collectively involved in decades of covering up child abductions and ritualistic murders on the Louisiana coast.
Harrelson plays a hard drinking, combative Louisiana State Police Detective named Marty Hart. His new partner is a fastidious note-taking detective named Rustin “Rust” Cohle, played by McConaughey. The two police detectives are assigned to investigate the discovery of the slain body of prostitute Dora Lange, who has been tied up to resemble a person kneeling in prayer before a tree, murdered, raped, mutilated and crowned with deer antlers in a mock crown of thorns.’
‘Inmates at an Alabama prison plan to stage a work stoppage this weekend and hope to spur an escalating strike wave, a leader of the effort told Salon in a Thursday phone call from his jail cell.
“We decided that the only weapon or strategy … that we have is our labor, because that’s the only reason that we’re here,” said Melvin Ray, an inmate at the St. Clair correctional facility and founder of the prison-based group Free Alabama Movement. “They’re incarcerating people for the free labor.” Spokespeople for Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley and his Department of Corrections did not respond to midday inquiries Thursday. Jobs done by inmates include kitchen and laundry work, chemical and license plate production, and furniture-making. In 2011, Alabama’s Department of Agriculture reportedly discussed using inmates to replace immigrants for agricultural work; in 2012, the state Senate passed a bill to let private businesses employ prison labor.’
‘When Schmidt arrived at the meeting, the human resources director, two college officials, and a security official were awaiting him. Schmidt had been reported by the dean of the school for sending a threatening email.
The threatening email was an automatic notification that he had posted a photo on an unnamed social media outlet …
… That is Schmidt’s little girl, doing “yoga”. Are you scared? Do you feel threatened? Because this leader of higher education was terrorized and in fear that Schmidt was going to go on some kind of armed rampage with an “assault weapon.”
Anyone who has ever watched HBO’s Game of Thrones knows that this is a catchphrase on the program. Actually, you probably don’t even have to watch the show to know that – it’s all over the internet. During the meeting Schmidt even Googled the phrase to show the Inquisitors…I mean, school officials, that this was just a line from a TV program. But the security official argued that the word “fire” could actually be a reference to an AK-47, and with that, Schmidt was suspended, without pay.
Schmidt was not allowed to return to work until he had a psychiatric evaluation.’
‘I’m always making a joke that our overblown government couldn’t even get together and make a noodle salad without finding some magical way to screw it up.
Apparently, and sadly so, that snarky bit of sarcasm isn’t all that far off the mark.
Food served at a Food Safety Summit held earlier this month between several of our federal agencies including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Big Food industry giants the likes of Tyson, ConAgra and McDonald’s, actually gave some of the people who attended food poisoning.’
‘Stories about measles outbreaks in New York, California, and Texas have been in the news lately, complete with fear-inducing headlines and pro-vaccine propaganda.
Naturally, those who choose to opt out of vaccinations tend to be blamed for outbreaks.
Let’s start with some facts about measles.’
‘When trouble’s brewing at sea and there’s no nearby friendly airbase or port, it could take weeks for US Navy ships and aircraft to show up to protect shipping and keep the enemy at bay. So the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking to give the US Navy a new way to get to the scene almost immediately, popping up near, behind, or even in the midst of an enemy fleet, using robotic pods that sit on the ocean floor and can release flying and floating drones to the surface to attack on command.
DARPA has requested bids this week for the final two phases of its Upward Falling Payloads (UFP) program—an effort to create pre-positioned unmanned systems that sit dormant on the sea floor, waiting for a command to rise to the surface and unleash (non-lethal) hell. Containing electronic and low-power laser attack systems, surveillance sensors, and even airborne and aquatic drones that act as decoys or provide intelligence and targeting information, the UFPs would have to survive for years at depth, waiting for a command.’
‘Air pollution is not just unsightly or inconvenient; it can be lethal. As a matter of fact, the WHO (World Health Organization) has reported that 7 million deaths are attributed to air pollution annually, with 40% of those coming from China. Of course, air pollution exists to lesser degrees here too. But at least we don’t have to resort to buying canned mountain air that’s promoted in China.
You have a right to be skittish about buying foods or supplements from China. The heavy metal air pollution from China’s recent industrial efforts to catch up to already industrialized nations throughout the world have produced heavy metal residues that not only pollute the air; the soil has also captured its share of mercury and cadmium.’
‘It’s always a drag to find out when a friend is saying one thing to your face, and another to your back. As uncovered in our film Take Back Your Power, the way in which most utilities are now delivering the lies and propaganda — with your individual rights, security, and potentially health on the line — is elevating the trait of “two-faced” to a completely new level.
It’s important to note that the first 4 of these references have to do with the smart meters / grid infrastructure capabilities as of this time. According to the sum of my research over the past 3 years, the plan involves achieving a greater and greater level of granularity and extraction of in-home data over time — see #5 and #6 below as examples (as well as my article on Google’s Nest acquisition). So as far as privacy and surveillance go, according to utilities’ own documentation and writings, ‘smart’ meters are effectively a trojan horse.’
‘More than two-thirds of the pollen that honeybees collect from European fields is contaminated by a cocktail of up to 17 different toxic pesticides. These are the shocking findings of a new study released yesterday.
In addition to pesticides-related chemicals, the report also identifies substances used in insecticides, acaricides, fungicides and herbicides, produced by agrochemical companies like Bayer, Syngenta and BASF. To mark the release of the report and protest against the chemical industry’s role in bee decline, more than 20 activists unfurled a giant banner outside the headquarters of Bayer, in Germany.
The study, The Bees’ Burden: An analysis of pesticide residues in comb pollen (beebread) and trapped pollen from honey bees, is the largest of its kind, comprising more than 100 samples from 12 European countries. In total 53 different chemicals were detected.’
‘In San Francisco, the tech culture wars continue to rage. On April 15, Google opened up purchases of its Google Glass headgear to the general public for 24 hours. The sale was marked by mockery, theft and the continuing fallout from an incident a few days earlier, when a Business Insider reporter covering an anti-eviction protest had his Glass snatched and smashed.
That same day, protesters organized by San Francisco’s most powerful union marched to Twitter’s headquarters — a major San Francisco gentrification battleground — and presented the company with a symbolic tax bill, designed to recoup the “millions” that some San Franciscans believe the city squandered by bribing Twitter with a huge tax break to stay in the city.’

‘Should a company be able to patent a breast cancer gene? What about a species of soybean? How about a tool for basic scientific research? Or even a patent for acquiring patents (see: Halliburton)?
Intellectual property rights are supposed to help inventors bring good things to life, but there’s increasing concern that they may be keeping us from getting the things we need.
In this wild and contested jungle of the law, which concerns things like patents and copyrights, questions about the implications of allowing limited monopolies on ideas are making headlines. Do they stifle innovation? Can they cause the public more harm than good? Trillions of dollars are at stake. Companies known as “patent trolls” are gobbling up patents, then going on lawsuit sprees and extracting fees against infringement.’
‘Thug and prime minister of Iraq continues his assault on Anbar by killing civilians in Falluja. National Iraqi News Agency reports his shelling of Falluja’s residential neighborhood have left 7 civilians dead today and seventeen injured. These are War Crimes.
In other violence, National Iraqi News Agency reports the Ministry of the Interior announced they killed 12 suspects “on the outskirts of the city of Fallujah,” an al-Radhwaniya roadside bombing claimed 2 lives and left six more people injured, 1 person was shot dead in Alkhotway, 1 person was shot dead in Hartha, 1 person was shot dead and another left injured in an Abu Ghraib attack, an eastern Mosul battle left 2 rebels dead, a Mosul roadside bombing left 2 police members dead and a third injured, 2 Ramadi suicide bombers took their own lives and the life of 1 police member (with four more injured), 1 male corpse was found dumped on a street in Kirkuk (Alsumaria notes he was blindfolded and his hands were bound), and 3 corpses were found dumped “in an orchard are in Arab Jaour, south of Baghdad” (shot “in the head and chest”). Through yesterday, Iraq Body Count counts 435 violent deaths in Iraq so far this month.’
‘The thousands of people who arrive at Qalandiya checkpoint and its surroundings each day didn’t hold their breaths when they heard Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s announcement that “unilateral actions by the Palestinians will be responded by unilateral actions”.
What other unilateral actions could the Israeli government take against the Palestinians in a reality in which millions of human beings, from the moment of their birth and until their death, are victims of commands, regulations and laws that enable theft and torture?
When an entire community lives without basic rights, when children and adults can’t control their daily lives, which have been planned out unilaterally by men of power for tens of years?’
‘Tehran has slammed as illegal a US court ruling to confiscate the assets of Alavi Foundation in Manhattan, saying the move runs counter to the principle of religious freedom for American citizens.
“The recent ruling regarding the forfeiture of the assets belonging to the foundation is, to all appearances, in contradiction to realities, void of legal validity and even in breach of US commitments to guarantee religious freedom for its citizens,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said in a Friday statement.
“Contrary to the prosecutors’ baseless allegations and the court’s politically-motivated ruling which was a propaganda fuss, the Alavi Foundation is an independent charity institution in the US which has no links with Iran,” she added.’
‘More than half of Americans (54 percent) consider the federal government a threat to individual liberty rather than a protector, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found.
According to the survey, just 22 percent trust the government as a protector of individual rights, down from 30 percent last November. Around 24 percent of voters are undecided.
In December 2012, 45 percent of voters said the federal government was a protector of individual rights, while 46 percent described it as a threat to those rights.
The poll also found that 37 percent of Americans now fear the federal government, while 47 percent do not. About 17 percent are not sure.’
‘Nine Palestinians have been wounded when Israeli forces pepper sprayed worshippers trying to enter the al-Aqsa Mosque Compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Witnesses said all of the wounded were elderly Palestinians.
According to local sources, several other worshippers were abducted during the clashes on Friday.
Israeli forces erected barricades around the mosque compound as part of restrictions imposed on Palestinians.
Hundreds of Israeli troops were also deployed to check the identification of worshippers. Only Palestinian men over 50 were allowed to enter the area.’
‘A car bomb has gone off in a government-controlled area of Syria’s Old City of Homs.
Official media reports said more than a dozen people were killed in the deadly bombing on Friday.
