‘The Islamic State and the war in Syria is back on the front pages of the news once again on the heels of the alleged killing of James Mark Foley, an American journalist working in Syria. The outrage surrounding the alleged beheading of Foley, while justifiable if it is real, is already being used for propaganda purposes, namely in order to build up American support for an aerial bombing campaign against the Syrian government.
With this in mind, it is important to examine the facts surrounding the alleged execution of James Foley and the ways in which this incident is being used to justify more American military intervention in the Middle East and Syria specifically.’
‘The Pentagon is considering military action against ISIL inside Syria as US warplanes continue to target the terrorist group in northern Iraq, according to senior US officials.
At a joint news conference on Thursday, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said the ISIL militants cannot be defeated unless the US or its allies attack them in Syria.
Observers say the statements could be an effort to prepare the Americans for a new US war in the Middle East region.’
‘President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that France had delivered weapons to rebels battling the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad “a few months ago.”
The deliveries took place “a few months ago, when the Syrian rebels had to face both the armies of the dictator Bashar al-Assad and this terrorist group Islamic State,” Hollande told reporters on a tour of the French island of La Reunion.
“We cannot leave the only Syrians who are preparing a democracy … without weapons,” he added.’
‘In comments seemingly aimed at the UK and US, Mr Hollande said that if more action had been taken against the use of chemical weapons in Syria, IS may not have been so successful.
In an interview with France’s Le Monde yesterday, he said: “If, two years ago, we had acted to ensure a transition, we wouldn’t have had Islamic State.
“If, one year ago, the major powers had reacted to the use of chemical weapons, we wouldn’t have had this terrible choice between a dictator and a terrorist group.”‘
‘John McCain is known as the leader of the Republicans and unhappy 2008 US presidential candidate. This is, we will see, only the real part of his biography, which serves as a cover to conduct covert actions on behalf of his government.
When I was in Libya during the “Western”attack, I was able to view a report of the foreign intelligence services. It stated that, on February 4, 2011 in Cairo, NATO organized a meeting to launch the “Arab Spring” in Libya and Syria. According to this document, the meeting was chaired by John McCain.
The report detailed the list of Libyan participants, whose delegation was led by the No. 2 man of the government of the day, Mahmoud Jibril, who abruptly switched sides at the entrance of the meeting to become the opposition leader in exile. I remember that, among the French delegates present, the report quoted Bernard-Henry Lévy, although officially he had never exercised functions within the French government. Many other personalities attended the symposium, including a large delegation of Syrians living abroad.’
‘Britain must co-operate with President Assad, the Syrian dictator, in order to confront Isil, the former head of the Army has said.
General Lord Dannatt, the former Chief of General Staff, said the West must secure the permission of the Syrian government in order to launch airstrikes on Islamist militants.’
‘In the ongoing effort by the establishment to demonize the Tea Party and resistance to an expanding federal government, a new narrative is emerging that could provide justification for a nation-wide crackdown on dissent.
The riots in Ferguson, Missouri are a focal point for an unfolding historical drama that could further divide the nation. Tribal passions are being stirred across the world by outside manipulators.
Members of The Islamic State (ISIS) are announcing their support for protesters in Ferguson, with one member saying on Twitter “It’s time to strike fear into the hearts of the oppressors.” Another tweet from ISIS supporter Abu Ottoman says, “Blacks in #Ferguson, there’s an alternative to this indignity: pick yourselves up with Islam, like #IS in #Iraq.”’
‘In the killing fields of Gaza where heavily-armed Israeli troops in Merkava tanks and US-supplied F16 strike aircraft, fire high-explosive missiles into a civilian population in acts of collective punishment – to date, over 2000 lives, the majority of which are unarmed civilians including hundreds of women and children, have been taken.
Meanwhile, in the skies above the 1.8 million souls who are crammed into the densely populated Gaza enclave, unmanned drones fly close overhead to the houses, schools and hospitals, 24/7, in an illegal act of terror to frighten and intimidate the civilian families who have been deliberately held by the Israelis at subsistence level for now over seven years by an illegitimate blockade of essential supplies.’
‘The genocidal war that the apartheid Israeli state has waged on the Gaza Strip has generated an unprecedented wave of international public condemnation and international solidarity with the Palestinians. Graphic images of unimaginable destruction and heaps of dismembered and shattered bodies of innocent children flooded social media.
Circulating in the context of the recent history of a series of Israeli military incursions into Gaza (first in 2008 and again in 2012), these images prompted hundreds of thousands of people to take to the streets around the world to demand an end to the Israeli occupation and ethnic cleansing in Gaza.
The engineersof Zionist hasbara (the Hebrew word for “propaganda”) pushed back, redoubling their efforts in well-orchestrated PR campaigns that tried to reframe their genocidal war with typically hackneyed talking points. Israeli PR pressure even forced some celebrities, who had posted on Twitter both against the senseless genocide in Gaza and for recognising the humanity of Palestinians, to retract their Twitter posts.’
‘There is something very wrong with quarantining 50,000 people into their community. I have also noticed that the security police have no protective clothing. Some had masks and gloves but most were without the protective gear. If they are so worried that the community is infected why no protective gear? It would be just a matter of time before the military security force starts to come down with Ebola.
Why not allow people to at the very least fish. The small fishing boats would not make it across the Atlantic Ocean to Brazil. The coast guard is patrolling the shoreline so the people would really be unable to go far. The food supply is running low. It is a matter of time before the townspeople push their way out. Then, Liberia will have a major spread of disease.’
‘A central part of that campaign by Washington has been the effort to blame the downing of Malaysian Flight 17, which killed all 298 passengers and crew, on Russia, or failing that, on pro-Russian separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine. This campaign has used innuendo, falsified evidence and, weirdly, spurious and sometimes absurd “evidence” circulating in various social media — all of which which people like Secretary of State John Kerry and president Obama himself have tried to say “prove” that Russia, or at least a Russian-provided high-altitude BUK anti-aircraft missile, was responsible for the downing.’
But increasingly, critics, including analysts within the CIA, have been throwing cold water on that theory. Suspiciously, the US, which had a spy satellite located directly over the Malaysian plane at the very time of the shoot-down, and which certainly has detailed photographic images of exactly what happened, has offered no a single photo to prove its contention that a missile was fired from territory under rebel control.’
‘Kiev has accused Russia of “invading” Ukraine after President Poroshenko said a convoy of over 100 aid vehicles entered Ukrainian territory without permission.
“Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has accused Russia of a “flagrant violation of international law” after Russian humanitarian aid lorries entered Ukraine without permission,” reports BBC News.
Kiev went on to suggest that the convoy could be part of a “planned provocation” on behalf of Moscow and rebel fighters in Luhansk.’
Why would these people attempt to damage the work of someone who was at the front line 25 years ago before there was a ‘truth movement’ and has already done more to alert people to the truth worldwide than this lot will do collectively if they live to be a thousand?
Who benefits? The System.
Why would they be so quick to criticise the UK Column which is way further down the rabbit hole than they will ever be prepared to go?
Who benefits? The System.
You can expect some major attempts to discredit me in the next few months which are bubbling in the background at the moment because I am getting far too close to the truth and they know that I won’t be intimidated or silenced.
I take it as a compliment and I’ll just run at them quicker.
Watch this space and all that.
‘William Hague claimed hundreds of pounds on expenses to fund a protest meeting – to fight his own Government’s NHS reforms.
The Cabinet minister was accused of hypocrisy for campaigning against hated health service cuts in his constituency, while backing the Coalition’s changes in Westminster.’
‘Despite his reputation as a womaniser and fondness for malt whisky, a daily habit that brought about his premature death aged just 61, the funeral of Sir Nicholas Fairbairn in 1995 was marked by an outpouring of respect and admiration.
As more than 1,000 luminaries crammed into St John’s Kirk in Perth, the former Tory MP’s significance as a political figure was underlined by the presence of Lady Thatcher, who had promoted the brilliant solicitor to her first Cabinet in 1979.’
‘Home Secretary Theresa May is planning to introduce new anti-Jihadist powers as she warns that the “struggle against a deadly extremist ideology” is likely to last for decades.
She is considering extending banning orders to groups with extreme ideology but which are not engaged in terrorist activities, and she wants new powers to target extremists who try to radicalise young men and women.
The Home Secretary revealed that she has prevented “more than 150 people”, including “hate preachers”, from entering the UK because their behaviour is considered unacceptable.’
‘Earlier this week we published a link to an online database where you can look to see what kind of military equipment your local county is stockpiling. Several other publications have linked to this database as well. I heard from a couple of people that it might not be a 100% comprehensive list, but others are discovering that, whether it is comprehensive or not, there is a lot to be learned from looking in that database.
Imagine looking and finding out that your county police bought 8 Apache Helicopters and had done so over three years ago. That is exactly the experience from one person who searched the database for purchases in Brevard County, Florida.’
‘There are myriads of articles and videos in the alternative media about the spiritual awakening, the second coming, the shift of ages, protecting the planet, saving this and saving that, and the premise that by waving the magic wand of protest, or sitting crossed legged under a tree chanting some phonetic syllable handed down from somewhere, we can turn our earth into a paradise.
Hello! Did you forget this is a duality?
Time to press the delete buttons in our minds… because the concept of utopia in duality is sheer delusion.’
‘On 29 July 2014, WikiLeaks releases an unprecedented Australian censorship order concerning a multi-million dollar corruption case explicitly naming the current and past heads of state of Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam, their relatives and other senior officials.
The super-injunction invokes “national security” grounds to prevent reporting about the case, by anyone, in order to “prevent damage to Australia‘s international relations”.
The court-issued gag order follows the secret 19 June 2014 indictment of seven senior executives from subsidiaries of Australia’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).’
‘A police officer just 15 miles away from the ongoing protests in Ferguson, Mo. allegedly said he thinks the protesters should have been “put down like rabid dogs.”
Officer Matthew Pappert is a police officer with the Glendale Police Department. He has been an officer since 2008. Pappert received the 2009 City of Glendale Community Service Award and the 2013 Kirkwood American Legion Post and Kirkwood Optimist Club Public Safety Award.
He also apparently holds contempt against the protesters in Ferguson, according to screenshots obtained by The Daily Caller.’
”After meeting with a “bevy” of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions.
‘Was anyone surprised to hear that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is under pressure not to investigate Israel’s war crimes in Gaza?
The British government wouldn’t even vote for the UN Human Rights Council’s proposal to launch an inquiry and, along with France, abstained. The US, as expected, voted against. Even Ireland, Germany and Italy abstained in an extraordinary show of collective political cowardice. The enemy within had revealed itself.’
‘Leading intelligence experts including former National Security Agency (NSA) official Thomas Drake – the whistleblower who inspired Edward Snowden – confirm that the tools are designed to enhance the intelligence community’s capabilities to identify potential terrorism suspects that could face a range of sanctions, from surveillance to no-fly injunctions to, at worst, being targeted for extrajudicial assassination via the CIA’s “kill lists.”
But, they say, inherent flaws in the program are instead likely to facilitate the criminalization of political dissent and the targeting of innocent civilians – and that such trends are increasingly likely to affect not just “hostile theatres” abroad, but even domestic populations in the U.S., Britain and Europe.’
‘Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that bargains with uncertainty and finds comfort in denial. Every so often we must deal with an unpleasant truth we wish would just go away. Sometimes the truth can be very shocking and we find ourselves inadequately prepared to handle it. That’s when denial comes to the rescue— and what can’t be denied can always be rationalized away.’
‘With incredible technology at our fingertips, scientists are now more than ever before striving to understand the mind, looking to answers questions such as: “How quickly can the brain think?” and “How does the mind work?” Are we getting any closer to having these questions answered?
The basic structure and function of neurons – brain cells that process and transmit information through electrical and chemical signals – were discovered by Santiago Ramón y Cajal in Spain in the late 19th century. From that point forth, humanity has made amazing strides in creating and using technologies to record brain activity and understand its patterns – from magnetic resonance scanners to recording neural communication using electrodes on the scalp and the brain.’
‘The California Supreme Court has handed down a major 4-3 decision in a vehicular manslaughter case that further erodes the rights of citizens to remain silent after being placed into custody.
As are all familiar with the Miranda warning that “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” However, as we recently discussed, the Supreme Court by plurality decision that effectively allowed pre-Miranda silence to be used against a criminal defendant in Salinas v. Texas 570 U.S. ___, ___ (2013) (plur. opn. of Alito, J.).
Now, the California Supreme Court inPeople v. Tom, has handed down the first major application of Salinas and ruled that the prosecution can use the silence of a defendant (Richard Tom, left) as evidence of guilt. In California, it is not simply what you say but what you do not say that can be used against you. It is not clear if they are going to change the warning to let people know that if they do not speak, their silence can be used as incriminating.’
‘Rising levels of food poverty have led to malnutrition becoming more common in the UK, experts say. The public health problem is responsible for a range of ailments surfacing across the country, including rickets.
Britain’s Faculty of Public Health has linked the growing trend to people’s inability to afford quality food. According to the latest figures, there has been a 19-percent increase in the number of UK citizens hospitalized for malnutrition over the past twelve months.
UK ministers say the government has billions available to tackle issues concerning public health. The coalition recently confirmed that a portion of this funding will be channeled towards local authorities to address public health concerns such as malnutrition.’
‘Police are set to ban Gaza protesters from King Street and move them elsewhere after limiting numbers to 10 at a time.
From tomorrow (Saturday), GMP will be imposing conditions on demonstrators, including limiting the maximum number at any one time to 10 and moving them to a designated area outside an empty business on Police Street.
Police say the action has been taken because the ‘legal threshold’ required under the Public Order Act has been passed. Those who fail to comply could be arrested.’
‘From times immemorial, the top down authority imposition has been the rule. This system of control is the reason why excrement discharge flows downhill. The feudal model works well for the lords who sit atop the pyramid. Essentially the New World Order is the supreme evolution of the subjugation of the serf class. In spite of this fact, what keeps this inequitable delineation between the dominant and the spineless? Pure power and malicious behavior achieves the perfection of perdition, in this hierarchal slave gulag. Because it can be done and no force can stop the captivity is the cause of the suffering.
The manipulating influence behind the Anglo-American hegemony and hyper-power governance is the “Crown”. The Crown as defined by NESARA INTERNATIONAL may seem bizarre to the casual spectator. However, the secrets of the international banksters, wholly exposed after the global financial meltdown, are undeniable. If this is not the ultimate extortion by the global gangsters, what could top this rush into thralldom?’
‘Some history teachers balked this week at a proposed Education Ministry lesson plan that encourages students to be “Jewish fighters” like the biblical Joshua.
The lesson, which was recently sent to history teachers across the country, quotes Simcha Goldin’s entire eulogy for his son Hadar, an Israeli soldier killed during the fighting in Gaza earlier this month. Describing his son as “a Jewish fighter” like Joshua, Simcha Goldin said: “Do as he did. Take the Torah with you day and night and be Jewish fighters.”
Some teachers objected to bringing religion into the picture.’
‘The reason that Internet trolls are effective is that people still don’t understand their game. There are 15 commonly-used trolling tactics to disrupt, misdirect and control internet discussions.’
‘News has been rapidly exploding across the “truth media” regarding the CDC whistleblower who is now making shocking revelations: The CDC’s own research found that MMR vaccines caused autism in African-American children, and the agency knowingly buried this evidence to hide it from the public.
The scientific conspiracy went all the way to the top of the CDC, where Dr. Julie Gerberding — now an executive with vaccine maker Merck — took an active role in the cover-up and even arranged to have the whistleblower punished for trying to tell the truth.’
‘Similar to the fluoride in your water, the BT Toxin in your GM Corn is toxic and poisonous. There were never any longitudinal studies on ANY Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) products, except for the guinea pigs who consume this toxic garbage on a daily basis. BT Corn is found in many products, such as cereal, corn chips and anything that contains High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), such as soda, juices, bread, yogurt (not all), salad dressing, most candy, gum and even some ‘nutritional’ bars.’
‘While debate continues to rage about the threat of autonomous “killer robots,” the mechanized replacement of humans continues across the workforce. In fact, the robotics industry notched record sales in the first half of 2014 in North America, and there appears to be no indications of a slowdown.
Security robots have become a special area of interest for developers. Britain recently unveiled its first robot security guard. “Bob” is the outcropping of a worldwide initiative into robotic security set to appear at prisons, care facilities, schools, or perhaps a neighborhood near you.’
‘But his case never made the news — his name was kept under wraps by then-Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes.
That secrecy is over, says DA Kenneth Thompson, who succeeded Hynes in January.
At The Post’s request, Thompson’s staff last week released 20 names of defendants in cases Hynes had refused to divulge because they involved Orthodox Jewish suspects and/or victims.’
‘As states move to hide details of government deals with Wall Street, and as politicians come up with new arguments to defend secrecy, a study released earlier this month revealed that many government information officers block specific journalists they don’t like from accessing information. The news comes as 47 federal inspectors general sent a letter to lawmakers criticizing “serious limitations on access to records” that they say have “impeded” their oversight work.’
‘The tear-gas, rubber bullets and smoke bombs fired in Ferguson, Missouri have fed outrage over police militarization in the U.S. In response to the shocking images, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said, “We need to de-militarize this situation.” Journalists reporting live on the demonstrations sparked by the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown expressed befuddlement as to why the police needed high-caliber weapons better suited for war zones than protests in an American city.
But one group of people is decidedly happy about the militarized response in Ferguson: those who work in the weapons industry. The array of police forces–the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the St. Louis county and city police and local Ferguson officers–that descended on the largely black Missouri city have used the products these corporations are selling in abundance.
Tear gas, rubber bullets, smoke bombs, stun grenades, armored personnel carriers, sound cannons and high-caliber rifles have all been deployed to quell the unrest, though they have contributed to anger over police tactics.’
‘Not only is it dangerous to use your phone while doing other things (driving, for instance), there are other side effects of constant attachment to your mobile devices.’
‘Private firms in the United Kingdom have been criticized for saving millions of pounds by using immigration detainees as cheap labor at detention centers.
According to Home Office figures, detainees in centers run by Serco, G4S, and such contractors worked nearly 45,000 hours in return for a total of nearly 45,500 in pay, for the month of May this year.
According to Phil Miller, who is a researcher at Corporate Watch, the companies are “saving millions of pounds by exploiting their captive migrant workforce on a grand scale.”’
‘Tens of thousands of demonstrators in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, have held a mass rally, demanding that the government step down.
On Friday, the angry protesters accused the government of corruption and marginalizing the Shia community. Witnesses say the protesters are the supporters of Houthi Shia fighters.
Reports say thousands of Houthi fighters have also strengthened their positions around the capital city in recent days.’
