Washington’s Second Front in Information War against Russia

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces.But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

Meanwhile, the Russian military command has furnished European Union officials in Brussels with a dossier of its own evidence, based on satellite, radar and air traffic control communications that tend to show a completely different set of circumstances over the downing of the airliner. Russia’s information, which is verifiable unlike Washington’s with-held «secret intelligence», strongly suggests that Malaysia Airlines MH17 was taken down by Western-backed Ukrainian military forces under the command of the Kiev regime.

The Ukrainian leadership has resigned, because of their unwillingness to impose the IMF's terms, which would impoverish the population within months. That impoverishment would be extracted from the Ukrainian public in order to repay the IMF's loans, which had been skimmed off by Ukraine's oligarch billionaires into secret bank accounts in Switzerland and other tax-havens.

Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza’s Horror - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The truth is that outside Israel, Washington, D.C. and various other Zionist strongholds, David Harris’s worldview is crumbling. And, as the numbers of those who share his viewpoint shrinks, other counter-groups, such as the boycott Israel movement, grow in number. Sooner or later a tipping point will be reached and then things will change and probably do so rapidly. On that day what will David Harris do? Blame it all on anti-Semitism? Take residence at the top of Masada? Or grudgingly seek to make his peace with the Palestinians?,

On the parlous state of the (Canadian) prime ministerial belfry: batty, or what?

I don't know about you, but I always took a certain comfort in the notion Harper was a cynical master of manipulation, a politician for whom no wedge was too harmful or divisive to be shunned. This is bad, of course, and both immoral and dangerous, but it contains the comforting kernel of thought that no one as bright as Harper is could actually fail to see the glaring contradictions in the stuff he says. This always offered the faint hope he didn't actually believe everything he was saying, and therefore might be philosophical if voters indicated they disagreed.

Naturally one hoped his petulant and furious reaction to the complicated situation unfolding in Ukraine reflected only the availability of another potential wedge issue here in Canada. That is, a chance to capture the Ukrainian-Canadian vote. Perhaps, one hoped, it didn't reveal his actual thoughts on the unstable and dangerous crisis in which there are plenty of nasty players and victims on all sides.

However, after reading Harper's little magnum opus about how Putin is all bad, and the current Ukrainian government -- neo-Nazi enforcers, foreign fascist mercenaries, the illegal coup that brought it to power and everything else -- is nothing but good, I'm not so sure.

Egypt destroys 13 more Gaza tunnels

Egypt has demolished 13 more tunnels between the country and the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for the past seven years.

The army said on Sunday that it had destroyed the tunnels in the Sinai Peninsula, but did not say when they were demolished.

The tunnels are the only lifeline for Palestinians living under the Israeli siege and Egypt has so far laid waste to 1,639 of them.

Since the ouster of Egypt’s former president Mohamed Morsi last July, the Egyptian military has launched a campaign to destroy the tunnels, preventing the people in Gaza from bringing in most of their basic goods like construction materials, food, and fuel into the coastal enclave, which has been hit by Israeli airstrikes since July 8.

"'The government is looking into the possibility of making an appeal for international forces on the ground to re-establish security and help the government impose its authority,' a government spokesman, Ahmed Lamine said in a statement.'"

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.

Russia Media Allege Flight MH17 Shot Down by Ukraine Missile Unit. Political Disarray Following Collapse of Kiev Government

Two SU-25 fighter jets from the airbase of the 229th Brigade of the Kulbakino tactical force in Nikolayev reportedly served as control targets. One of these aircraft had been recorded near Sarostschenskoje by a Buk anti-aircraft missile system.

“The tragic accident could have led to the flight route of the Malaysian Boeing and the SU-25, which were at different altitudes, crossing and appearing on the radar display as one large point, which was fatal for the civilian plane, because the targeting system would automatically choose the larger target,” the source told Ria Novosti.

A rocket launch was reportedly not scheduled. Why a rocket was nevertheless fired, the source could not explain. “This is the question facing Ukrainian Security Service staff, who picked up the battery commander and crew at about half past nine in the evening,” he said.

Netanyahu’s Bloody Calculations

Unless the underlying issues are addressed, the next ceasefire will not stop this tragic cycle. The stage will be set for another round, when Israel will mow the lawn again. Absent regime change in Israel, the cycle will continue until and unless political leaders in the U.S.-led West summon political courage they have not displayed and acknowledge that the objectives the current Israeli government is pursuing are not in their own country’s interests, or even in Israel’s.

As the sequence of events preceding the current round of violence makes clear, Netanyahu saw as the biggest threat to that strategy the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah, the dominant party in the Palestinian Authority. If the agreement held, excuses for not being serious about negotiating a comprehensive peace agreement and establishing a Palestinian state to replace the occupation would become too flimsy to maintain.

GAZA GENOCIDE

For 66 years Gaza Strip (the present day Auschwitz) was subject to incremental Genocide by Israel. Gaza Strip itself was created by Israel in its earliest war crimes.

In the spring and summer of 1948 Israel uprooted all the population of 247 Palestinian villages in southern Palestine and herded them in a tiny strip, hence named Gaza Strip. Thus the largest and longest-duration concentration camp in the world was created by Israel. Since then Israel continued to exterminate as many refugees as possible.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported.If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Because we are right and our cause is just. We resist passively and actively. We resist violently and non-violently. It is our legal and moral right to resist with whatever means available to us against what has been accurately called “incremental genocide.”

Very recently minutes have been uncovered of the original 1954 Bilderberg conference held near Oosterbeek in the Netherlands. These minutes, with more expected to be released in the coming months, reveal a growing consensus among the several members that the Anglo-American establishment was dead set on a neo-colonial power grab through trade policy. The documents also reveal that a global power network was to be established through such a policy, with the aim of bringing a large number of developing nations under its wing.

The photos of the 1954 Bilderberg minutes were taken by Shepherd Johnson, a Census Bureau whistleblower, who stumbled upon the material while doing research at a DC University Library.

Rescuing the Petrodollar and energy war - the real reason for the US provoking revolution in Ukraine

Gaspipe Diplomacy: How Ukraine Set Off a New U.S.-Russian Energy Fight
By Sylvia Todorova on Jul 23, 2014

Pro-Palestinian Guest of Hannity Won’t Answer Whether He Thinks Hamas is a Terrorist Organization

“You’re making a rationalization for rockets and kidnapping and murder, and you want to blame the victims in this case!” Hannity said.

“The only people blaming the victim here is you,” Munayyer said.

Hannity then asked Munayyer whether Hamas, which calls for the destruction of the Jewish state, was a terror organization, as it has been designated by the United States and its allies.

“Thank you for your question, and now I will provide an answer,” he said. “It’s very telling to me, and it should be telling to your viewers as well, by the way, that the moment you have a Palestinian voice on your program who begins to explain the legitimate grievances of Palestinians on the ground, not just Hamas.”

“Answer the question!” Hannity yelled. “Is Hamas a terrorist organization?”

“The United States certainly considers Hamas a terrorist organization, we all know that,” Munayyer said.

“I ask what you think! Can you hear?” Hannity asked.

Munayyer said they would not make any progress if Hannity simply yelled at him, setting the host off.

“What part of this can’t you get through your thick head? Is Hamas a terrorist organization? Yes or no? Yes or no?” Hannity asked, his voice rising.

Analogy to US media reporting on Israel & Gaza: ‘1776: Congress vows to destroy England!’

*hyperlinks live at source*

(Satire): His Majesty, King George III, addressed Parliament today in response to the US Declaration of Independence. Excerpts:

King George: I will never apologize for England - I don’t care what the facts are. [1]

How is England supposed to fight back against a terrorist organization whose entire mission is the destruction of England? I mean, it’s in the Congress’ Declaration of Independence that they want to kill all English.

Look at what this says (holding a copy of the Declaration): The terrorist group, Congress, calls we English “destructive,” “evil,” and vows for America to destroy England. [2]

Samantha Power And The Age Of Genocide; Rwanda 1994 vs Gaza 2014

Power and her bosses give their full support to Israel’s continued crimes against humanity and genocide.

Twenty years after Rwanda, the Genocide in Gaza is ignored. Samantha Power has either lost all memory, or she has lost all humanity –but without a doubt, she is completely void of integrity, and complicit in the crimes against Palestinians.

The Supreme Court of Wisconsin on Thursday released a decision retroactively approving Milwaukee police’ warrantless use of “stingray” tech — which allows police to intercept names, phone numbers, locations, call records, text messages and other private cellphone data — to locate a murder suspect.

Hospital Shooting Stopped By Armed Doctor: He Saved Lives, "Without a Doubt"

A psychiatrist is being hailed as a hero after he stopped what could have been a mass shooting at a Pennsylvania hospital earlier this week.

From BearingArms.com:

49-year-old patient Richard Plotts and his caseworker, 53-year-old Theresa Hunt, went into the office of psychiatrist, Dr. Lee Silverman for an appointment. Shortly after arriving a heated argument broke out, and a staffer peaked through the door to see the patient, Plotts, pointing a handgun at Silverman. The staffer then quietly shut the door and dialed 911 to alert police.

“On July 17 the commanding officer of 156th Anti-Aircraft Regiment was instructed to conduct a training exercise of ground troops stationed near Donetsk, which involved deploying the troops, and carrying out a routine tracking and destroying of targets with the Buk-M1 missile,” the source said.

The source added that the actual launch of the rockets was not intended.

MH17 Verdict: Real Evidence Points to US-Kiev Cover-up of Failed False Flag

Until this past Monday, the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17th, 2014, was a potential game changer for global geopolitics and the New Cold War. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the Kremlin…

In this report, we will lay out the facts based on a wide breadth of available information and data surrounding MH17. We will also present and give critique to Washington and Kiev’s “mountain of evidence” that has saturated US and European-based media coverage since the incident took place. 21WIRE has compiled this report with the help of many contributors and references from English-speaking media, as well as material translated from Russian and Ukrainian media sources, along with other historical references to provide context. Our objective is to get as close to the truth as possible. Although many revelations will appear to be self-evident, we still encourage the public to draw their own conclusions regarding this pivotal event.

Oops: Obamacare Architect in 2012 - "States Without Exchanges Won't Get Tax Credits"

Obamacare has been in and out of courtrooms since it's inception, but two recent cases are especially significant because they deal with the tax credits, or "subsidies" given under the law.

Those subsidies – with the federal government paying up to 100% of the premiums for certain insurance plans for people with low incomes – were the core of coverage expansion under the ACA.

The part of the law that is in question applies to whether or not citizens who sign up for Obamacare under the federal exchange are eligible for subsidies.

Bloomberg Lies as Ukrainian Rebels Allegedly Down 2 Warplanes

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

In Bloomberg's article, "Two Ukrainian Jets Shot Down, Three Dangerous Explanations," it claims two Ukrainian SU-25 ground attack warplanes were shot down by rebels over Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, stating:

"Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman told reporters in Kiev that two of its Sukhoi SU-25 fighter jets were shot down while flying at 5,200 meters (17,000 feet) over the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine. The pilots ejected, and their whereabouts are unknown."

"At 17,000 feet, the planes would have been outside the range of the shoulder-fired missiles that the rebels contend are their only air-defense weapons. The planes would, however, be in range of a surface-to-air missile such as the Buk, which is suspected to have been used to shoot down Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 on July 17."

Bloomberg's "three dangerous explanations" are patently false...

Illegal alien rapes 12-year-old girl in North Carolina

On Tuesday, the trial for 30-year-old Francisco Marquez Martinez began in Forsyth Superior Court for the brutal rape of a 12-year-old girl in her Winston-Salem home. The accused was hired to mow the family's lawn, but instead, reportedly forced his way inside the house and sexually assaulted the girl, once he discovered that her parents were not at the residence.

On June 22, 2012, Marquez knocked on the door and told the victim that he wanted to cut the grass a day earlier than planned. The girl then called her mom and handed the phone to the illegal alien, according to court documents.

Marquez then began cutting the grass, until it started to rain. He knocked on the door and asked if he could come inside, and though the girl told him no, he pushed his way into the kitchen.

All the cops ended up finding was some perfectly legal ammunition and some pot seeds and marijuana paraphernalia. All charges against the suspect were later dropped, but their dog is dead and his sister lives with horrible back pain due to the deputies’ murder attempt.

Gaza's Children Burning In The Zionist Terrorism

They also provide the address and coordinates of the shelters to the Israeli war criminal forces (IWCF) in order to assure safety measure. The school raises the UN flag.

Mr. Adnan Abu Hasana, the spokesman for the UN’s Palestine refugee agency UNRWA in Gaza stated that the (IWCF) did not send warning message before they shelled the school which used as a shelter.

He added: “We asked the israeli forces coordination office to warn us before shelling because the school is located in a dangerous area. We told them to give us enough time to evacuate women, children, elderly and UNRWA team, but they shelled the school without warning.”

89 yo "Nazi war crime suspect" dies in US custody before extradition to Germany

An 89-year-old Nazi war crimes suspect and American citizen died in custody just hours before a US court gave the go ahead for his extradition to Germany.

Johann Breyer died on Tuesday night at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, where he had been transferred on Saturday after spending a month behind bars.

“I can confirm he passed away last night," his lawyer Dennis Boyle told AFP on Wednesday.

Breyer's death was disclosed just as US Magistrate Timothy Rice had approved the extradition request, which would have still needed approval by a US government review.

Rice found probable cause that Breyer was in fact the same individual being sought by German prosecutors in the Bavarian town of Weiden over his alleged service as an SS concentration camp guard first at Buchenwald, and later at Auschwitz.

Group Given Nearly $300 Million To House Child Immigrants; Improperly Disclosed Lobbying

A Texas-based organization that has been awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts by the Obama administration to house illegal immigrant children not only lobbied the federal government, but also failed to properly disclose the activity.

After The Daily Caller inquired about its lobbying disclosures, BCFS, a San Antonio-based nonprofit, now says it may correct its tax forms to properly disclose its lobbying expenditures.

The Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has tapped BCFS, formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services, to provide security and other services to unaccompanied children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, and Ft. Sill army base near Lawton, Okla.

Debt Rattle Jul 24 2014: Ukraine: What To Do When Growth Is Gone

“The fact that the coalition has fallen apart, that laws haven’t been voted on, that soldiers can’t be paid, that there is no money to buy rifles, that there is no possibility to fill gas storages. What options do we have now?” This is, as per Bloomberg, what US handpicked handpuppet and – now former – Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk told the Kiev parliament earlier today during a speech in which he announced the resignation of his “government”. Several of his coalition partners, including right wing Svoboda, had left the government not long before.

This raises a ton of poignant questions. The first one that came to my mind was: “in whose name are the women and children of Lugansk and Donetsk going to be killed now”? It can’t be in the Kiev government’s name anymore.

Obama, US politicians ‘owned’ by Zionist lobby: Barry Grossman

An international lawyer says President Barack Obama’s statements on Israel’s deadly onslaught against Palestinians stem from “power politics” as he and other US politicians are “owned” by “the Zionist lobby.”

“We should never be so naive as to expect anything said by President Obama that touches on the subject of Israel to be based on sound logic or on facts,” said Barry Grossman in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday commenting on Obama’s remarks about Israel’s offensive on Gaza.

“There is nothing about Obama’s position or rhetoric on Gaza that is based on principle or facts as distinct from pure power politics,” Grossman added. “The simple demonstrable fact which America is at last waking up to, is that its political apparatus has been occupied by special interests for a very long time and no group is more organized, better resourced or more pernicious that the Zionist lobby.”

Desperate hunt for 'contagious' homeless man, 25, in California after he refused to have tuberculosis treatment

A desperate hunt is underway in Northern California for a tuberculosis patient who has refused treatment and may be contagious, putting those around him at risk.

Prosecutors said on Thursday that they have obtained an arrest warrant for Eduardo Rosas Cruz, a 25-year-old transient.

In March, he went to the San Joaquin General Hospital's emergency room, complaining of a severe cough. Diagnosed with tuberculosis, medical staff told him to stay in a Stockton motel room, where a health worker would deliver his medication and watch him take it. But officials say he took off.

County health officials asked prosecutors to seek the warrant, in part, because Rosas Cruz comes from a part of Mexico known for its drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis.

New discipline figures from Canada’s national police force show a record number of Mounties behaving badly.

From lying under oath, to driving drunk, sharing porn on RCMP computers, to having sex in cruisers, new discipline figures from Canada’s national police force show a record number of Mounties behaving badly.

The latest report from the RCMP’s professional integrity officer shows 104 new formal discipline cases were brought forward in 2012-13 compared to an average of 88 for the previous 13 years. The report suggests the increase may be linked to the force’s tighter discipline process and a tougher stand on “bad apples” by RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf introduced the story to the press at today’s briefing, claiming that the US has secret evidence from “human intelligence information” that the attacks are taking place. The Pentagon concurred, saying such attacks have been going on “for several days.”

During the past several days, there has not been a single report out of Ukraine of an artillery strike against any of their military bases, anywhere in the country. The last such incident was two weeks ago, when rebels fired a BM-21 grad at a military base.

And this is Ukraine we’re talking about, which comes up with its own dubious stories of Russian attacks on a near daily basis. If Russia was carried out concerted shelling against Ukrainian military targets, Ukraine would be harping on about it constantly. They aren’t even alleging anything close to that is happening.

Now you can see why the media with the government is demonizing President Putin calling him a tyrant,a Nazi and a Dictator because they are accusing him of being the very thing the west is now trying to discredit him because he is a threat to the power structure of the globalist.

Internet Sales Tax Quietly Moving Through Congress

Eric Blair
Activist Post

Big retailers, including Amazon, have been lobbying long and hard for it, and now the Internet sales tax is back after being quietly reintroduced in the US Senate last week.

The Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act would force customers to pay sales taxes for online purchases from out-of-state online merchants, and it forces online retailers to collect and remit separately sales taxes to all US territories...

White House is expected to release a version of a classified report on torture during the Bush years... the entire thing, five years in the making, clocks in at about 6,700 pages, making it the most exhaustive account yet of what really went on in secret

Sometime this summer, probably when as many Americans as possible are tanning on a beach and not paying attention, the White House is expected to release a version of a classified report on torture during the Bush years. Actually, what's likely to become public is only the executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee's report; the entire thing, five years in the making, clocks in at about 6,700 pages, making it the most exhaustive account yet of what really went on in secret CIA prisons around the world.

Study: More Than Half Of The People Executed In The United States Have A Severe Mental Illness

A majority of the 100 executed inmates examined in a new study by three legal researchers had “a severe mental illness such as schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder or psychosis.” Yet, because of an oddity in the Supreme Court’s death penalty cases, it is typically constitutional under existing precedents to execute people with these illnesses.

U.N. school in Gaza caught in cross-fire; 15 killed

This title is on purpose misleading and incorrect. THERE WAS NO CROSSFIRE. Israel just bombed it.

Israeli tank shells hit a compound housing a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens who were seeking shelter from fierce clashes on the streets outside, Palestinian officials said, as Israel pressed forward with its 17-day war against the territory's Hamas rulers.

Over one million comments on net neutrality fielded by the FCC, and the majority of them are declared useless or invalid

The Federal Communications Commission received more than 1 million public comments on the issue of net neutrality during a five-month commenting period that ended Friday.

It's the biggest public response the FCC has ever gotten on a policy matter in such a short period, and the second most commented-upon FCC issue, period. It ranks just behind the 1.4 million complaints received after Janet Jackson's Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction, which isn't a direct comparison because those were spontaneous comments unrelated to a rule-making matter.

It’s Time for Conservatives to Stop Defending Police There is nothing conservative about government violating the rights of citizens.

For decades, conservatives have served as stalwart defenders of police forces. There have been many good reasons for this, including long memories of the post-countercultural crime wave that devastated, and in some cases destroyed, many American cities; conservatives’ penchant for law and order; and Americans’ widely shared disdain for the cops’ usual opponents.

Game-changing US/Israel lies: Hamas and Iran demand Palestinian justice, not to ‘destroy Israel’

*hyperlinks live at source*

Americans receive rhetoric that Hamas threatens destruction of Israel, but without substantiation of this damning claim. This claim is often linked to Iran. In support of Israel’s war on Gaza, US Senate Resolution 498: “Whereas Hamas is a United States-designated terrorist organization whose charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel...” Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Consul General Aharoni demonize Hamas on US television repeatedly, emphasizing Hamas intent to destroy Israel.

Israeli leadership continuously claims that Iran threatens to “wipe Israel off the map.” You may recall US presidential candidate Mitt Romney claimed making the same claim, joining previous Bush Administration leadership, Obama, McCain, Sarah Palin, Vice President Joe Biden (with three video clips of total 5-minutes to see and hear for yourself), Mrs. Clinton, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Bachmann, Perry, Huntsman (2-minute video to see and hear).

The Coming Calamity, The Coming Resistance

Currently, the world is facing a number of problems, politically, socially and economically. While we may be paying attention to important stories such as the Islamic State’s movements in Iraq and the ongoing fighting in the Gaza Strip which are extremely important, there are dealings being made behind our backs of which we know virtually nothing about. There are major international trade deals in the works and the government seems to be getting prepared for the fallout...
