‘Scotland Yard is being investigated over claims it was involved in three more VIP child abuse cover-ups, taking the total to 17.
In one case police are accused of protecting TV stars in a paedophile ring.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been told that evidence was suppressed on the orders of a senior officer.’
‘The state was involved in mass murder on British soil, a lawyer has told a coroner’s court.
The security forces colluded with loyalist paramilitaries in 80 deaths between July 1972 and June 1978 in Northern Ireland’s “murder triangle” in counties Armagh and Tyrone, Leslie Thomas QC said.
He said many were carried out by the Glenanne Gang of gunmen with the alleged involvement of soldiers and police officers.
Mr Thomas said it could take a year to hear inquests and compared the task to that of investigating the Hillsborough football disaster.’
‘As noted earlier, the biggest significance of any Yemen conflict has little to do with its own domestic oil production, which at 133,000 bpd is negligible, but due to its location, which not only shares a border with Saudi Arabia, but more importantly due to the Bab el-Mandeb strait which connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden: it is the fourth-biggest shipping chokepoint in the world by volume (3.8 million barrels a day of oil and petroleum products flowed through it in 2013) and is just 18 miles wide at its narrowest point. It’s located between Yemen, Djibouti, and Eritrea, and connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea.’
‘The warplanes of the Saudi-led alliance have attacked a popular market in the northwestern Yemeni city of Sa’ada, killing or injuring at least 15 people, according to Yemen’s al-Massira TV.
The attack occurred as Saudi-led warplanes have pounded the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a for the second consecutive day.
The airstrikes against Sana’a resumed during the early hours of Friday.
The planes bombed military and civilian targets in and around the Yemeni capital.’
‘Republican hawk John Bolton has denounced the nuclear talks underway between Iran and the P5+1 countries, calling on the United States to immediately launch a military offensive against the Islamic Republic to damage its nuclear infrastructure.
Bolton, who was US ambassador to the United Nations during the George W. Bush administration, made the remarks in an article published by the New York Times on Thursday.
“The inescapable conclusion is that Iran will not negotiate away its nuclear program,” the neoconservative diplomat wrote. “Nor will sanctions block its building a broad and deep weapons infrastructure.”’

‘Those people who surround you only want to see you weak enough to crawl.
They’ll lie for you, decide for you, and buy up all your rights and all your wrongs.
And they’ll try to stop your singing in the middle of your song.
For they do not want you free, and they will not make you strong
but only drag you down in the hole they’re coming from.’
‘The investigation into how police handled child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham has been expanded, it emerged last night, after the police watchdog said it had received complaints involving more than 100 allegations against 42 named officers.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) announced that since their inquiry began four months ago, it has received 30 complaints relating to South Yorkshire Police’s handling of reports about CSE.
The IPCC initially began investigating the 10 police officers involved in the incidents highlighted by the Jay Report, which described how at least 1,400 children were raped, trafficked and groomed in the South Yorkshire town between 1997 and 2013.
The watchdog said yesterday it has now identified a total of 42 police officers, both retired and serving, from the complaints it has received over the past few months.’
‘A key component of the controversial Jade Helm military exercise set to take part in nine U.S. states this summer will involve soldiers operating “undetected amongst civilian populations,” to see if they can infiltrate without being noticed.
The “realistic” military training exercise, which will involve the Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, is set to take place from July 15-Sepember 15, but has prompted concerns after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise.
A Houston Chronicle report reveals that soldiers will attempt to blend in with the local population in an effort to test the effectiveness of infiltration techniques. Residents will be advised to report “suspicious activity” during the exercise.’
‘The co-pilot who flew Germanwings Flight 4U9525 into the Alps had 18 months of psychiatric help for a ‘serious depressive episode’ while he was training, it was claimed today.
Andreas Lubitz, 28, locked his captain out of the cockpit during a toilet break and deliberately crashed the Airbus A320 on Tuesday, killing all 150 people on board.
Germany’s biggest newspaper Bild claimed he received the treatment six years ago while he was training at Lufthansa’s flying school – where he was classed as unsuitable for flying.’
‘Much as we’d like to emulate our NASCAR heroes, breaking the speed limit often comes at a price. Ford is hoping to prevent accidents and speeding tickets by introducing cars that can see what the speed limit is and preventing heavy-footed motorists from driving any faster. Ford’s Intelligent Speed Limiter tech will first appear on the new Ford S-Max that’s launching in Europe that could just change the way that we drive.
A camera mounted on the windshield scans the road signs on the sides of the highway and, when the vehicle enters a 20mph zone, the system reduces the top speed to match. Rather than controlling the speed with automatic braking, the car limits its own velocity by adjusting the amount of fuel being pushed to the engine.’
‘The reforms would mean that those who have entered the UK illegally or overstayed their visas would be sent home on a plane before any judicial review began.
The plans – which will be introduced by the Conservatives if they win the election – will stop thousands of immigrants from exploiting the court system to prolong their stays in Britain.
It is hoped that the crackdown will slash legal costs for lengthy appeal processes, saving taxpayers money.
The only exception would be for asylum seekers or foreigners who would face “irreversible” harm if sent back home to a dangerous country.’
‘Facebook has already begun flying its giant drones designed to bring internet access to the world, Mark Zuckerberg has revealed.
‘As part of our effort to connect the world, we’ve designed unmanned aircraft that can beam internet access down to people from the sky,’ he posted on his Facebook page.
‘Today, I’m excited to share that we’ve successfully completed our first test flight of these aircraft in the UK.”
‘Yet it soon backfired as local residents and political campaigners put pressure on Channel 4 to axe the fly-on-the-wall show; though they could hardly confess and tell the worlds media that their real reasons of making ‘Immigration Street’ was quite the opposite of what the residents first believed and that their hidden agenda was to shame the British indigenous public by yet again suggesting they were idle good for nothing racists.
However, according to the author who has since spoken to some of the residents, it appears “film extras” were drafted in. People just appeared on the scene, yet were being featured in the film. Flags were all of a sudden being seen put up in various windows representing the nations they came from. Delroy, was one of those and he could be seen sticking-up a Jamaican flag in his own window. One of the local residents who confronted the film crew and claimed, unlike Delroy, that he had lived there for over 30yrs and accused Delroy of being a plant, an outsider.
As soon as filming stopped, Delroy moved away. Similar things were discovered that tends to prove there was other outsiders involved in helping to stage-manage the film.’
‘Ultimately those who awaken invariably come up against a very big question; why would the so-called “elite” self-appointed rulers of this planet bring the house down around their own ears? Don’t they get irradiated, chemtrailed and ultimately modified like the rest of us? Aren’t their children in peril just like ours?
Underground bunkers or not, the rapid deterioration of our environment is leading toward a dead planet if their machinations aren’t halted some time very soon.
What these manipulators are up to is not life giving, it is death dealing. For humanity and all of nature.
Why would anyone/anything do such a thing? To answer that, people first need to realize that that’s what they’re doing.
Deliberately trashing our planet.’
‘The time has now come for the decent people of our country to rebel and bite back with the truth – not aggressively, but by harnessing the characteristics that the British people are well known for…..humour and cheek! Over the coming weeks, up until polling day on May 7th, how would you like to publicly confront and expose these self-serving and treasonous politicians square on and bring them down to earth with one hell of a bump….whilst having tremendous fun in the process?
Well, you can! And all you need is some sort of digital camcorder and two or three like-minded friends who are also determined to expose these wrongdoers and so get the truth out. Acting like a sort of military ‘flying column’ – that is a small highly mobile and motivated force that is capable of utilising its minimum resources effectively so as to achieve maximum effect – this simple initiative could easily sabotage the well-laid election plans of the major political parties thus exposing to the British electorate the enormous lies and subterfuge that currently pervade and effect our country’s decision-making processes.’
‘The stock market is rigged.
When I started making that claim years ago — and provided solid evidence — people scoffed. Some called it a conspiracy theory, tinfoil hats and that sort of stuff. Most people just ignored me.
But that’s not happening anymore. The dirty secret is out.
With stock prices rushing far ahead of economic reality over the last six or so years, more experts in the financial markets are coming to the same conclusion — even if they don’t fully understand how it’s being rigged or the consequences.’
‘U.S. soldiers and military contractors sexually abused at least 54 children between 2003 and 2007, according to a report commissioned by the Colombian government and the FARC.
“There is abundant information about the sexual violence, which ocurred under absolute impunity because of the bilateral agreements and the diplomatic immunity of United States officials,” said Renan Vega of the Pedagogic University in Bogota, who helped write the report.
Vega detailed a case in 2004 in which military contractors sexually abused 54 girls and filmed [the abuse] and sold the films as pornographic material. The families of the victims received death threats and the victims fled the central Colombian town of Melgar.’
‘Despite mounting protests, Japan continues to finance the building of coal-fired power plants with money earmarked for fighting climate change, with two new projects underway in India and Bangladesh, The Associated Press has found.
The AP reported in December that Japan had counted $1 billion in loans for coal plants in Indonesia as climate finance, angering critics who say such financing should be going to clean energy like solar and wind power.
Japanese officials now say they are also counting $630 million in loans for coal plants in Kudgi, India, and Matarbari, Bangladesh, as climate finance. The Kudgi project has been marred by violent clashes between police and local farmers who fear the plant will pollute the environment.’
‘Taylor Swift’s Style is said to be about her ex-lover Harry Styles. Through symbolism, however, the video gives the song another meaning: It is about the having an alter persona, the ultimate result of Monarch mind control.’
‘Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Liberal-National government last month released a report into the Australian welfare system that outlined measures aimed at slashing billions of dollars in public spending by denying welfare payments to hundreds of thousands of disabled, unemployed and other vulnerable people.
The report’s chief author, Patrick McClure, has been chief executive officer for both large charity organisations Mission Australia and St Vincent de Paul. He authored an earlier report in 2000 into the welfare system that paved the way for the further privatisation of social services and extension of punitive “mutual obligation” responsibilities for unemployed workers and others receiving welfare payments.’
‘Controversial lobbyist who claimed that the chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer was safe for humans refused to drink his own words when a French television journalist offered him a glass.
In a preview of an upcoming documentary on French TV, Dr. Patrick Moore tells a Canal+ interviewer that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was not increasing the rate of cancer in Argentina.
“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” Moore insists. “You want to drink some?” the interviewer asks. “We have some here.”’
‘Did you know that the Russians have a massive underground complex in the Ural mountains that has been estimated to be approximately 400 square miles in size? In other words, it is roughly as big as the area inside the Washington D.C. beltway. Back in the 1990s, the Clinton administration was deeply concerned about the construction of this enormous complex deep inside Yamantau mountain, but they could never seem to get any straight answers from the Russians.
The command center for this complex is rumored to be 3,000 feet directly straight down from the summit of this giant rock quartz mountain. And of course U.S. military officials will admit that there are dozens of other similar sites throughout Russia, although most of them are thought to be quite a bit smaller. But that is not all that the Russians have been up to. For example, Russian television has reported that 5,000 new emergency nuclear bomb shelters were scheduled to have been completed in the city of Moscow alone by the end of 2012.’
‘The underlying nature of reality is that Everything is Energy. It’s not a concept. It’s not a theory. It’s reality. We live in a multidimensional universe of holographic etheric fields — fields upon fields of subtle vibrational forces, particles, and strings. And even if you cannot see the fields, you will sometimes feel and sense things that you can’t always explain. And maybe you even intuitively feel and sense that those unseen forces may be some type of controlling system. If you are aware of these things, then you know the question… What is the Real Matrix?
In order to understand What the Matrix Is, you have to understand the human energy field.’
‘The Abbott government is pressing ahead with plans to fortify the ministerial wing of Federal Parliament that will see the Prime Minister’s office screened by a steel security fence and two bullet proof, concrete gatehouses.
House of Representatives Speaker Bronwyn Bishop is now seeking parliamentary approval for the new “perimeter security enhancements”.
The new physical security measures, which according to Mrs Bishop’s office will cost around $2 million, follow the highly visible upgrading of Parliament House security after the national counter terrorism alert level was raised last September and the Canadian Parliament was attacked by a gunman in October.’
‘As the government continues to widen its electronic surveillance in the ongoing fight against “terrorism,” Americans are witnessing the slow, steady erosion of their constitutional right to privacy embodied within the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment.
As reported by McClatchy Papers, the federal government now has the authority — somehow — to read emails that are more than six months old, and without a court-issued warrant. So, if ever there was an incentive to clear out your inbox and your trash, this is certainly it.’
‘Recently, scientists took a huge leap forward in developing a radically new form of immunization. Researchers from the Scripps Research Institute reported in February that they had successfully used a new form of gene therapy to induce monkeys to produce an antibody that deactivates HIV.
This new therapy is fundamentally different from vaccination, which consists of introducing small amounts of infectious material into the body to induce it to produce its own antibodies. In immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer (IGT), scientists instead hope to modify the DNA of patients to enable them to produce entirely new antibodies.’
‘Their weapon is a scheme hidden inside a scam. Called the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the scam is their claim that TPP is nothing but another free trade deal — albeit a whopper of a deal — one that ties our economy to Brunei, Vietnam, and nine other nations around the Pacific Rim. But of the 29 chapters in this deal, only five are about tariffs and other trade matters.
The real deal is in the 24 other chapters that create a supranational scheme of secretive, private tribunals that corporations from any TPP nation can use to challenge and overturn our local, state and national laws. All a corporate power has to do to win in these closed proceedings is to show that a particular law or regulation might reduce its future profits.
This is big stuff, amounting to the enthronement of a global corporate oligarchy over us.’
‘The Church of Scientology has a well-publicized history of going after its critics with everything it has, including its tons and tons of dollars, which reportedly total about $3 billion. So it’s not all that surprising that, as Alex Gibney’s much talked-about Scientology documentary “Going Clear” – which numerous reports claim uncovers some fairly batshit revelations – heads to HBO on March 29, the Church has undertaken a full-scale, multimedia counterattack. Here are six ways Scientology, gloves off, is going after Gibney and everyone involved in “Going Clear.”‘
The 16th anniversary of NATO’s War on Yugoslavia gives cause to reflect on what American ‘diplomacy’ is really all about.
The US has long trumpeted itself as the only paragon of virtue and ‘defender of freedom’ in the world, going into overdrive with this message in the years following the Cold War. Millions of people were duped during this time, but their illusions were quickly dispelled after the 1999 War on Yugoslavia.
This tragedy exposed the true face of American ‘diplomacy’ as a duplicitous front for pursuing predetermined geopolitical ends. The war wasn’t so much about a ‘humanitarian intervention’ (the reality surrounding which was grossly exaggerated by the Western media) as it was the establishment of a pro-Western proxy state in the heart of the Southern Balkans.’
‘On Friday 13 March tens of thousands of public-sector workers took part in a day of action against proposed cuts, job losses, and welfare cuts. Called by the Northern Ireland Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, it brought public transport, ambulance services and other public services to a standstill.
The trade unions also organized a series of rallies and events, at which members of the public turned out in their thousands to show their solidarity. There were rallies in Belfast, Derry, Newry, Strabane, Omagh, Enniskillen, Coleraine, Magherafelt, Cookstown, Dungannon, and Craigavon.
In Derry the trade unionist Liam Gallagher described the cutting of 20,000 public-sector jobs while claiming that “it won’t have an impact on society” as the “economics of the madhouse.”’
‘Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.
Last year, Director of the Global Justice Now Nick Dearden said:
“It’s scandalous that UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business. This is the exact opposite of what is needed, which is support to small-scale farmers and fairer distribution of land and resources to give African countries more control over their food systems. Africa can produce enough food to feed its people. The problem is that our food system is geared to the luxury tastes of the richest, not the needs of ordinary people. Here the British government is using aid money to make the problem even worse.”’
‘When some 70 members of the neo-Nazi organization Golden Dawn go on trial sometime this spring, there will be more than street thugs and fascist ideologues in the docket, but a tangled web of influence that is likely to engulf Greece’s police, national security agency, wealthy oligarchs, and mainstream political parties.
While Golden Dawn—with its holocaust denial, its swastikas, and Hitler salutes—makes it look like it inhabits the fringe, in fact the organization has roots deep in the heart of Greece’s political culture.’
‘The Spanish lower house of parliament has approved new controversial security laws which are likely to restrict the right to protest and freedom of the press.
The country’s ruling conservative Popular Party got the bills, which will come into force on July 1, 2015, passed with absolute majority in the assembly on Thursday.
One law will change Spain’s criminal code by reviving the possibility of life imprisonment for heinous crimes, such as acts of terrorism, and murder of a child or handicapped person.
According to the second law, dubbed the Citizens’ Security Law by the government, up to 600,000 euros (USD 655,000) in cash fine may be handed down to those charged with public order offenses, even without standing a trial.’
‘The leader of Yemen’s Houthi fighters has heaped scorn on Saudi Arabia for conducing unjust and heinous attacks on Yemeni people, saying the Arab kingdom is serving as a puppet for the United States and the Israeli regime.
Abdul-Malik al-Houthi made the remarks in a televised address on Thursday in reaction to Saudi Arabia’s “unjustified” deadly attacks targeting Yemeni people in the capital, Sana’a.
Saudi Arabia is a puppet at the disposal of superpowers, the Houthi leader said, adding that Riyadh is putting in action the US-Israeli conspiracy in Yemen.’
‘The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has announced its indefinite suspension of a loan to Yemen, citing a “host of uncertainties” after Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against the country.
“Given the host of uncertainties surrounding Yemen at the moment, the first review… is postponed until the situation clarifies,” IMF spokesman William Murray said on Thursday at a regularly scheduled news conference.
Murray added that he could not state when the situation will improve enough to resume the loan package or estimate the economic impact of the Yemeni crisis in the region.’
‘At least four people have been killed and 20 more injured after a bus struck a landmine near a government-controlled town in eastern Ukraine, officials say.
The driver of the passenger bus veered away from a government checkpoint and instead took a side road near the town of Artemivsk, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of the violence-wracked city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, on Wednesday, said Ilia Kiva, a government-loyal deputy police chief in the Donetsk region.
“Today (Wednesday), at around 1900 (1700GMT)… a landmine blew up a passenger bus carrying civilians…. The explosion… killed four,” the official added.’
