‘Tuesday evening while speaking to Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich dropped information on the situation that is rarely heard in the mainstream media.
In the interview, Kucinich revealed that the United States government was guilty of funding some of the violent rebel groups who have overrun the country.
When asked how he would handle the crisis if he were president, Kucinich replied by saying that:
“What I’d do is not have USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy working with U.S. taxpayers’ money to knock off an elected government in Ukraine, which is what they did. I wouldn’t try to force the people of Ukraine into a deal with NATO against their interest or into a deal with the European Union, which is against their economic interest.”
So, it’s the USA’s fault that Putin rolled in? We made them do it?” O’Reilly replied.
“Bill O’Reilly, if you don’t believe in cause and effect, I don’t know what I can do for you,” Kucinich said.’
‘The head of Russia’s state-run energy company Gazprom said Friday that Ukraine has stopped paying for Russian gas supplies, which could trigger a repetition of 2009’s so-called “gas war” between the two countries.
According to Alexei Miller, crisis-hit Ukraine owes Russia about $1.89 billion in unpaid natural gas bills after failing to pay for February supplies.
“This violates our contract and international trade practices. We cannot supply natural gas for free,” Miller told reporters in Moscow.
“Ukraine must pay off its debts and current deliveries or face the risk of returning to the 2009 scenario,” during which Russia halted all deliveries to Europe via Ukraine’s pipeline system for two weeks.’
‘Like the West’s support of sectarian terrorists across the Middle East, including Al Qaeda, it has found the most despicable elements in Ukrainian society to lead “revolution” for the sociopolitical reordering of Eastern Europe. As the dust settles and the West’s proxy regime finds itself safely entrenched in Kiev, Ukraine – the Western media can now finally recuperate some of its lost legitimacy after months of denying the obvious – that armed Neo-Nazis led the so-called “Euromaidan” uprising.
A BBC Newsnight short titled, “Neo-Nazi threat in new Ukraine,” reveals xenophobic Jew-hating nationalists, armed and leading the mobs in Kiev, directly contradicting months of Western media narratives portraying the rabble as aspiring for “freedom,” “democracy,” and “closer ties with the West,” with the most absurd example being the “I am Ukrainian” propaganda reel.
Far from a “pro-democracy” uprising, the “Euromaidan” was yet another case of Western engineered regime change leveraging the good intentions of the ill-informed to mask the covert backing of ugly armed extremists, just as it had done all across the similarly engineered “Arab Spring” in 2011.’
‘Economist John Williams says if Russia sells its U.S. dollar holdings, it could trigger hyperinflation. Could it collapse the financial system? Williams contends, “Yes, it certainly has a potential to do that. Looking outside the United States, there is something over $16 trillion in cash, or near cash. That’s about the same size as our GDP. . . Nobody has wanted to hold the dollar for some time. The dollar, fundamentally, is weak. It couldn’t be weaker. All the major factors are against it.
It’s just a matter of what would trigger the massive selling. Nobody wants to hold it. The Russians start selling, and you have China indicating a general alliance here in terms of what’s transpiring. If the rest of the world believes this is what’s going to happen, people who have been wanting to get out of the dollar for some time very easily could front-run the Russians. The scare is on. People will try to get out of it as rapidly as they can. ‘
‘A police spy passed on confidential details about the breakdown of Neville and Doreen Lawrence’s marriage to Scotland Yard bosses.
The undercover officer sent reports of how the couple ‘had, in reality, separated’ during the Macpherson inquiry into their son Stephen’s racist murder.
In one, he made it clear that the collapse of the couple’s marriage ‘is not public knowledge’. Details of the astonishing intrusion of privacy are contained in the Ellison review into the Stephen Lawrence case.’
‘The head of Scotland Yard’s Counter Terrorism Command yesterday became the first casualty of the damning new report into the Stephen Lawrence case.
Commander Richard Walton was ‘temporarily moved’ from his post as head of SO15 to a non-operational role following the Ellison review.
He was also referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which will assess whether it should launch a full inquiry into his conduct.’
‘An allegedly corrupt officer who worked on the Stephen Lawrence murder investigation could be linked to an unsolved case concerning the killing of a private investigator.
Former detective sergeant John Davidson was named as suspected of having corrupt links to the gangster father of one of the thugs who was ultimately convicted of Stephen’s murder in Mark Ellison QC’s review.
Announcing the findings, Home Secretary Theresa May said Mr Ellison had established possible links between Mr Davidson and the investigation into the murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan.
Mr Morgan was found with an axe in his head in a pub car park in south-east London on March 10, 1987, and remains one of Scotland Yard’s longest unsolved murder case.’
‘Fearing its latest round of bonuses would create negative headlines and trigger a backlash, Barclays decided to act.
But rather than rein in fat-cat remuneration, it came up with a novel way to head off public anger – turn off televisions in branches so customers couldn’t watch the news.
Earlier his week Barclays announced that 500 super-rich bankers pocketed at least £1million each last year.’
‘Could you give up the internet for Lent – or even for good?
Following various reports about companies stealing information and complaints about oversharing on social media, a web hosting firm has created a nine-step guide on how to disappear from the web completely.
It includes deactivating accounts, removing links from search results and how to remove yourself from various lists – and for people who’d rather just stay hidden than disappear, the guide also gives tips on how to use the internet anonymously.’
‘The internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geoengineering to combat “global warming”; and, until recently, I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies. But over the past several years I have noticed a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern, and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many – dozens every day are littering the skies.
My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum.’
‘If someone had told me a decade ago that the British government would deliberately starve my fellow countrymen in an attempt to bully them into slave labor jobs that wouldn’t even pay the bills, I would have laughed in their face.
But now I know I would have been the fool. This is indeed the breathtaking strategy of David Cameron’s LibDem-Tory coalition.
A vast underclass of between 5 and 10 million people has been created in Britain of desperate, destitute and now-dying people. While government and media alike tell of “hopeful signs” that the nation’s getting better off, they are just ‘talking it up’ from their ivory towers.
Even Lord Rothschild, who invests over 2 billion pounds of his own dynasty’s and other depositors’ cash through RIT Capital Partners, is ringing alarm bells this week: “With the world recovery still fragile and reliant to a large extent on policy support [QE/money printing]“, he warns, “it is not hard to envisage markets having to deal with shocks in the coming year.” Yes, “shocks.”’
‘Last week, the Conservative/Liberal-Democrat coalition government sent the annual letter to the Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE) demanding cuts of £125 million.
The cuts will hit the poorest university students hardest.
The Access to Learning Fund (ALF), which makes non-repayable grants to the poorest students to enable them to access and remain in higher education, will be scrapped. The fund was set up by the Labour government in 2004 to deflect criticism to it raising tuition fees from £1,000 to £3,000 a year—fees that have since trebled to nearly £9,000.
The latest cuts come on top of plans announced last year to slash the National Scholarship Programme from £150 million to £50 million in 2015-16.’

‘New research published in The Lancet by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) found that various chemicals that many children are exposed to are having a direct effect on the creation of disorders labelled under the name ADHD as well as other mental disorders. One of the chemicals said to be having an effect is fluoride, or variations of fluoride. Governments have been performing artificial fluoridation for a number of years regardless of the lack of effectiveness it has in preventing tooth decay.
The research began in a study published in 2006 which initially looked at the effects of various industrial chemicals on neuro-development. The research continued with an analysis of more industrial chemicals including fluoride. Twenty-seven additional studies, including one that linked fluoride to the lowering of IQ in children, clearly illustrated the fact that fluoride is detrimental to brain development and can lead to autism spectrum disorders and other mental issues. The issue is being coined “a silent epidemic” and most health authorities continue to turn a blind eye to the issue.’
‘Western countries voiced concern on Thursday that tensions in Libya could slip out of control in the absence of a functioning political system, and they urged the government and rival factions to start talking.
Two-and-a-half years after the fall of former leader Muammar Gaddafi, the oil-rich North African state is struggling to contain violence between rival forces, with Islamist militants gaining an ever-stronger grip on the south of the country.
“The situation in Libya is very worrying,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters on the margins of a conference in Rome to discuss the Libyan crisis.’
‘Landowners argued yesterday that their property rights should trump the right to protest as they fight fracking activists through the courts.
Landholder Peel Group has brought a case to evict anti-fracking protesters from its Barton Moss site at Manchester High Court in Salford.
The company allowed oil and gas explorer IGas to start drilling last year but almost 100 people have since set up camp on the land in an attempt to block works.
The cost of policing the site has now hit £700,000, with several people being arrested since November.
Environmental activists have suggested that evicting the camp would infringe on their freedom of expression and assembly – breaching the European Convention on Human Rights.’
‘In 2006 Pam Judy and her family had a new home built on their farm. For three years Pam and her family enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the countryside. However, in 2009 that all changed when a gas compressor station was built 780 feet from her home. Within a short space of time Pam and her family were unable to spend time outside any more as they came down with all sorts of mysterious health problems. In November 2010 Pam’s son went outside and came home with blisters in his mouth and had extreme difficulty swallowing which led to a visit to the nearby hospital.
This led Pam to conduct research into emissions from compressor stations. She then contacted Calvin Tillman Mayor of Dish in Texas where many people had experienced similar health problems. Mayor Tillman provided Pam with a list of blood and urine tests to determine levels of chemical exposure. The results of the tests revealed measurable levels of benzene and phenol in her blood.
Pam was determined to force the authorities to take action that would protect her family. In June 2010 she persuaded the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to carry out air quality tests over four days on her land. The results revealed the presence of 16 chemicals, including benzene, which are all known carcinogens.’

‘A woman driving home one night saw what she thought was a homeless man sleeping on a bench outside of a church. Apparently the thought of a fellow human being in a time of need in her neighborhood scared her so much she called the police on him. The homeless man turned out to be a statue called Homeless Jesus. The church was surprised someone would call the police, but this type of attitude towards the homeless is no surprise.
After finding out she was wrong the woman still could not admit to it, so she then proceeded to say that the statue is “inappropriate,” and that Jesus was not homeless. I’m no biblical scholar, and I don’t go to church, but last time I checked Jesus hung out with, and took care of what the people of the day would have considered the lowest class of human beings. Hookers, the homeless, the sick, indigent, and people shunned by society. I’m pretty sure the only inappropriate thing here is the woman’s response to seeing what she perceived to be a fellow human being in need.’
‘As I write this, the European Union has just announced a possible $15b aid package to Ukraine (including 8 billion euros in fresh credit). Everybody has read the headlines about Europe: record unemployment, no end in sight, and so on.
So you might be wondering just where the European Union, and its constituent nations, scraped together the money to propose aid for Ukraine.
Well, wonder no more, because the following eight events might give you an idea of where governments go to get a little extra cash.’
‘Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to ban Facebook and YouTube in Turkey in an attempt to stop political foes anonymously posting audio recordings purportedly exposing corruption and other malpractices in his inner circle.
In the latest recording, released on YouTube late Thursday, Erdogan is purportedly heard berating a newspaper owner over the telephone about an article and suggesting the journalists be sacked, in comments that will further stoke concerns over media freedom and Erdogan’s authoritarian style of leadership.
Erdogan, who rejects any accusations of corruption, blames U.S.-based Turkish Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, a former ally, for the wiretaps which he says have been “fabricated”. Gulen, who denies any involvement, has many followers in Turkey, especially in the police and judiciary.’
‘House Speaker Michael Madigan just introduced a bill to the Illinois General Assembly that appropriates $100 million to build a presidential library and museum “dedicated to the legacy of President Barack Obama.”
Illinois is sitting on $7.6 billion in unpaid bills. The state’s credit rating has been downgraded five times since the largest tax hike in state history in 2011. More than 1 million Illinoisans are unemployed or underemployed, ranking the state’s unemployment rate at the third-highest in the nation. The state has signed up more people for food stamps than have been added to payroll jobs since 2011. That out of touch politicians have offered up $100 million in the face of these staggering realities is indicative of the toxic lack of leadership in Illinois.
That our elected officials have prioritized the funding of a library – which may or may not even be constructed in Illinois – for a president who is still in office is outrageous.’
‘The picture that’s painted here is pretty strange. Nakamoto apparently worked on black world projects, but, according to the story, he’s a libertarian and is ambivalent about the government. According to his daughter, “He was very wary of the government, taxes and people in charge.”
I don’t know what to make of this, but it’s definitely an interesting read.’
‘Earth can raise shields to protect itself against solar storms.
For the first time, satellites and ground-based detectors have watched as the planet sends out a tendril of plasma to fight off blasts of charged solar matter. The discovery confirms a long-standing theory about Earth’s magnetic surroundings and offers us a way to keep track of the planet’s defences.
“It’s changed our thinking about how the system operates,” says Joe Borovsky at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado, who was not involved in the research. “Earth doesn’t just sit there and take whatever the solar wind gives it, it can actually fight back.”
Earth is always surrounded by a bubble of magnetism called the magnetosphere, which protects us from the bulk of the solar wind, a stream of high-energy particles constantly flowing from the sun.’
‘Parents who want to enter their children in Oregon schools without vaccinating them will now need to sit through a lecture from a family doctor or watch a promotional video before they can be granted an exemption, according to a law taking effect on March 1.
Regardless of the severity or prevalence of the disease in question, or whether the parents choose to vaccinate on an alternative schedule, this will be a requirement for parents seeking any vaccine exemption.
The law is an effort to bring down the numbers of children who enter Oregon public schools without being “fully vaccinated,” defined as following the complete Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. According to CDC data, 6.4 percent of Oregon kindergartners (3,010 children) entered the 2012-2013 school year with a religious or philosophical vaccine exemption, in comparison with the national rate of 1.8 percent. This makes Oregon’s vaccine exemption rate the highest in the nation.’
‘In today’s globally connected economic environment, entire governments can be infiltrated by industry insiders who seek to further their business agenda. It’s easy for government safety boards and commissions to be coerced into supporting a corporation’s high-dollar demands. It’s now very easy for corporations to conspire globally to take advantage of expanding markets in agriculture. Follow the money.
Supporters of big GMO agribusiness are often deluded by the thought that they are feeding growing populations around the world. Realistically, genetically altered seeds have been changed at the molecular level, sometimes spliced with bacteria genes. This kind of DNA designer crop doesn’t always interact well with the human body. Chemicals like glyphosate, mass applied in this agricultural system, disrupt the shikimate pathway of the good bacteria in the gut. Even worse, GM “Terminator” seeds are actually designed to make the seeds die in their second year, which definitely doesn’t help farmers feed the world. The world’s hunger slowly becomes more dependent on the GMO design, limiting food security.’
‘The frontrunner to become the next president of the United States is playing an old and dangerous political game — comparing a foreign leader to Adolf Hitler.
At a private charity event on Tuesday, in comments preserved on audio, Hillary Clinton talked about actions by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in the Crimea. “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ’30s,” she said.
The next day, Clinton gave the inflammatory story more oxygen when speaking at UCLA. She “largely stood by the remarks,” the Washington Post reported. Clinton “said she was merely noting parallels between Putin’s claim that he was protecting Russian-speaking minorities in Crimea and Hitler’s moves into Poland, Czechoslovakia and other parts of Europe to protect German minorities.”
Clinton denied that she was comparing Putin with Hitler even while she persisted in comparing Putin with Hitler. “I just want people to have a little historic perspective,” she said. “I’m not making a comparison certainly, but I am recommending that we perhaps can learn from this tactic that has been used before.”’
‘Members of Congress and the Obama administration have consistently placed the blame for the violence stemming from protests on the Venezuelan government, while overlooking or ignoring violent incidents by opposition protesters, including the decapitation of motorcycle riders, the burning of government buildings and metro stations, attacks against state media companies, and the killing of individuals seeking to dismantle barricades, including a National Guard officer. Officials have referred instead to “systematic” human rights abuses and government repression, without citing evidence.
Based on these assertions, momentum is building to implement sanctions on members of the Venezuelan government. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told the press on Monday that, “There should be sanctions on individuals. … The administration is looking at those.” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, cited a “high-level” State Department official that she had recently spoken to.
That the administration is considering sanctions comes on the heels of demands from members of congress that the Obama administration go further in its application of pressure on the Venezuelan government. After introducing legislation “supporting the people of Venezuela as they protest peacefully for democracy,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) stated that:’

‘The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) filed two complaints today against the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The complaints allege that the two agencies illegally monitored and spied on the peaceful and democratic activities of community groups and First Nations opposed to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project. These groups include ForestEthics Advocacy, Dogwood Initiative, LeadNow.ca, the Idle No More movement, and others.
The BCCLA alleges that the RCMP and CSIS interfered with the freedoms of expression, assembly and association protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms by gathering intelligence about citizens opposed to the Enbridge project through a range of sources. The complaints also claim that the spying activities potentially included illegal searches of private information. The complaint against CSIS further alleges that the spy agency broke the law by gathering information on the peaceful and democratic activities of Canadians, which it is banned by law from doing. The documents released made clear that none of the groups under surveillance posed any threat to the National Energy Board hearings or public safety.’
‘In America, many people still think of household servants as something belonging to a distant age, a time less equal and democratic than our own, like the Britain of Downton Abbey. But as we’ve entered a second Gilded Age, the clock seems to be turning back, and the super-rich are increasingly relying on servants to feed, clothe and make them comfy. The economic “recovery” is not producing nearly enough jobs, but the servant sector is certainly growing.
Agencies are swamped with calls for butlers, chefs, drivers and other staff. What’s a private jet without your own flight attendant? What’s a yacht without a massage therapist? According to Claudia Kahn, founder of a Los Angeles-based a staffing agency, the rich are requesting “Downton Abbey-type service” to match what they see on TV. She notes that a housekeeper for a zillionaire may earn up to $60,000 a year (the industry median salary is less than $20,000), but a “lady’s maid” can take in $75,000. Full-time butlers can earn $70,000 a year, and some who travel around with a family on yachts or private jets could earn as much as $200,000 a year.’
‘“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext.” Thus spoke Secretary of State John Kerry on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last Sunday, just as Russia took control of Crimea in the latest escalation of the Ukraine crisis.
This extraordinary remark appears to have gone briefly viral. And surely I am not alone in requiring time to recover from the sheer ignorance and presumption of it. Ignorant because even by the standards at State, where the past must evaporate on an almost daily basis, it is hypocrisy unlimited on the very face of it. Presumptuous because it implies a degree of stupidity among us that not even P.T. Barnum would dare take for granted.’
‘Some 45,000 Palestinians living in the Shuafat refugee camp and the suburbs of Ras Shehadeh, Ras Khamis, As-Salam and Anata in Jerusalem have had their water cut off for nearly three days.
The residents said Israel’s water company Gihon started by gradually reducing the water supply nearly two weeks ago until it stopped entirely.
A member of Shuafat’s popular committee; Khaled Al-Khalidi said on Wednesday that 23,000 refugees had no access to water for three days while the residents of Ras Shehadeh; Ras Khamis, As-Salam and Anata have been without water for 20 days.
Al-Khalidi demanded “UNRWA, the camp’s service provider, to fulfil its obligations towards the refugees and prosecute the Jerusalem municipality and Gihon to oblige them to return the water supply.”‘
‘At roughly 2:30 a.m. Feb. 27, Israeli jeeps entered the West Bank town of Birzeit, surrounded the Washaha house and ordered everyone out. They had come to arrest Thaer Washaha, an activist in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) who had already been previously imprisoned by the occupation. According to Thaer’s father, the soldiers ordered the men to take off their shirts and forced them to lie down on the cold ground for two hours. The army detained Thaer’s brother, Ramiz, their cousin Fadi Sedqi and another young man Samir al-Qaisi.
The third brother, 24-year-old Mutaz, refused to leave the house and surrender. In a standoff that lasted several hours, the Israeli army fired rockets at the house before going inside and killing Mutaz by shooting him in the chest and head. They then proceeded to demolish part of the house before withdrawing in the early morning.
Of Birzeit’s land, 75% is classified under the Oslo Accords as Area B, where the Palestinian Authority (PA) is responsible for civil matters, but Israel has paramount control in terms of security. The rest of the land is under Area C, where civil and military control is in the hands of the Israeli occupation. The conundrum that even in areas under its jurisdiction, the PA is powerless or forbidden from actively challenging Israeli raids and the aggressive policies of occupation.’
‘The US House of Representatives has passed a bill which names Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and seeks to expand Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv.
The legislation, which was passed by a 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.
Israel already receives billions of dollars of American taxpayers’ money each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement between Washington and Tel Aviv signed in 2007, $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money is flowing to Israel.’
‘Afghan security forces have foiled potentially devastating attacks in northern Afghanistan by seizing a large quantity of weapons, intelligence sources say.
Afghan forces carried out raids on militant hideouts across the northern Baghlan province.
Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security said in a statement on Friday that its forces seized a cache of arms and ammunition, including explosives, machine guns, vests of explosives, rocket propelled grenade launchers and grenades.
The militants intended to use the weapons and explosives for terrorist attacks across the volatile region in a bid to disturb the upcoming presidential and provincial council elections, the statement noted.’
‘Israel makes allegations against Iran to create illusions and seduce public opinion to endorse Tel Aviv’s hostile foreign policy agenda, a political analyst says.
The Israeli regime creates “illusions out of nothing” and “seduce[s] people into accepting a version of reality that in fact does not exist,” Mark Glenn, political commentator from Idaho said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.
The analyst made the remarks in response to a recent allegation by Israel that Tehran sought to send missiles to the blockaded Gaza Strip. Israel claimed that its naval forces had raided a ship in the Red Sea and seized dozens of rockets from Iran destined for Hamas in Gaza.
Glenn said that the allegation was made concurrent with the annual meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby in the US to have “maximum effect”.’
‘Israeli settlers have attacked a Palestinian journalist’s car en route to cover a story in the occupied West Bank.
Several out of around 100 Israeli settlers stoned the car of the Palestinian photographer who was slightly injured in the hand and the face on Friday.
The settlers, who had gathered at the side of a road near Ramallah, also managed to crack the windscreen, said Abbas Momani, who works for AFP.
Momani said there were Israeli soldiers present on the scene but they did not intervene.’
