Gilts hit historic low as fall in oil price brings deflation closer to Britain

Falling inflation and the prospect of official interest rates being kept on hold for longer sent the government’s benchmark measure of borrowing costs tumbling to an all-time low on Thursday.

With the prospect of the rapid fall in oil prices bringing deflation to Britain within the next few months, the yield, or effective interest rate, on 10-year gilts touched 1.396% at one point during the day – lower than during the worst point of the eurozone crisis of 2012, and the first time in history it had been below 1.4%. They closed at 1.42%

If sustained, the downward move in gilt yields will have implications for the cost of servicing the government’s near-£100bn budget deficit and reduce the cost of long-term mortgages. Pensions, however, will suffer a drop in investment returns.

Winston Churchill:the Imperial Monster

This week Britain is commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill. Millions of people worldwide watched his state funeral on television in 1965, and thousands of people lined the streets of London to pay their last respects as his cortege slowly passed. But I somehow doubt that President Obama will be adding his own warm words of remembrance for the iconic British wartime leader.

Scramble to conclude suspicious EU-US trade deal

UK industry is in intensive care. Should we throw open the door and allow America’s big business battalions to muscle in under cover of a trade treaty?

Critics claim that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) currently being cooked up between the EU and the United States could:

Weaken workers’ rights and put millions of jobs at risk;
Reduce environmental protection and food safety regulation;
Lead to more privatization of public services like education and our prized National Health Service (NHS); Give new powers for corporations to sue European governments, including the UK, in secret courts.

They complain that world leaders are working alongside major corporations at breakneck speed to get this deal sewn up, and refuse to give details.

An especially prickly issue is the imposition of investor-to-state dispute settlement rules (ISDS) enabling foreign investors to sue the host government.

American Sniper: Hollywood war porn propaganda

The film, which portrays the deadliest sniper in United States history, is a hit among the sect of Americans that tends to demonize Hollywood for being too liberal and anti-American.

But is that claim actually true? Hollywood churns out war films and pro-government propaganda at a rate Josef Goebbels would applaud.

The propaganda is so effective that anyone who criticizes the most recent glorification of the war machine is labeled an American-hating, Muslim-loving pussy.But this is not a new trend.

Argo, Zero Dark Thirty and Homeland are just a few of the relatively recent films and television shows intent on building up America’s interventionist, militaristic foreign policy. Other shows and movies glorify the FBI and police.

American Sniper and US doom

The film American Sniper has sent the US public into raptures over the “heroic life” of its autobiographical subject Chris Kyle – who has been described as America’s “greatest warrior” soldier.

Last week, the movie premiered in cinemas to rave reviews, earning its director Clint Eastwood a box office smash-hit. Multiple Oscar awards are nominated.

Critics have quibbled about this or that aspect of the cinematography and storyline. But the prevailing impression is that Kyle – a US Marine marksman – was a tragic hero, a guy who honorably served his country during the American war in Iraq.

Lost in the discussion is the central issue, which is the criminal nature of American militarism and its destructive impact on millions of innocent people. American Sniper may express certain misgivings about US foreign wars, owing to the psychological consequences on its military personnel.

Abiding We ‘Give, Give and Give’ And They Still Don’t Like Us

I am puzzled by Lipman and other British Jews who express similar views. Jews settled in this country in the late 19th century. But it seems that more than a century or about 4 generations have not been sufficient for British Jews to feel themselves an integral part of this country. They give up on this kingdom quite easily. Lipman is threatening to leave us and 58% of British Jews do not see future in Britain.

The actress told LBC Radio: “When the economy dries up they turn on the usual suspect the Jew… and when the going gets tough the Jews get packing.”

More than 1m people with asthma may NOT have the condition and could be taking medication unnecessarily

More than a million people receiving treatment for asthma may have been misdiagnosed, experts warned today.

Almost a third of the 4.1m people treated for asthma in the UK did not show any 'clear evidence' of the incurable condition, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) .

This means they may be receiving unnecessary treatment.

Energy giant cuts bills... by £9 a YEAR! Critics attack EDF's 'paltry' 1.3% reduction for its one million variable rate customers

Energy firm EDF has announced a puny price cut of just 1.3per cent – less than 18p a week - in a devastating snub to customers.

The reduction on gas tariffs is worth a saving of just £9 on the average annual household energy bill and is tiny in the context of a sharp fall in wholesale energy prices.

Wholesale gas prices are down by around 28per cent in a year and electricity by 15per cent, which could deliver annual savings of £140 if they were passed on in full.

Bend over and spread 'em!

Merkel as Soft Cop in False Flag Offensive on Russia

At the World Economic Forum last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel let the cat out of the bag with her sly offer, or rather bribe, to Russia. The German leader told delegates in Davos that European Union sanctions on Russia would be lifted in exchange for a «peace deal» in Ukraine. She promised a «free trade pact from Lisbon to Vladivostok».

That’s a bit rich coming from the bankrupt EU, but nevertheless let’s accept the assumption that Frau Merkel is offering something very juicy. Why would she do that, and right at this time when civilians are being massacred in eastern Ukraine?

In other words, Merkel is saying if Moscow capitulates to Western objectives of ceding Ukraine to its full political, economic and military control, then Russia will be «paid off» with respite from Western sanctions and can look forward to a tantalizing free trade «happy ending» with the EU. How generous of Frau Merkel!

Russia In The Cross Hairs. Washington’s Threats have moved Into the Realm of Insanity

Washington’s attack on Russia has moved beyond the boundary of the absurd into the realm of insanity.

The New Chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, has declared the Russian news service, RT, which broadcasts in multiple languages, to be a terrorist organization equivalent to Boko Haram and the Islamic State, and Standard and Poor’s just downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status.

Today RT International interviewed me about these insane developments.

In prior days when America was still a sane country, Lack’s charge would have led to him being laughed out of office. He would have had to resign and disappear from public life. Today in the make-believe world that Western propaganda has created, Lack’s statement is taken seriously. Yet another terrorist threat has been identified–RT.

New banking shame as two million credit card holders get in line for up to £270 compensation for paying for 'security' policy they already got for free

Two million credit card holders could be in line for up to £270 compensation after they were wrongly sold insurance policies that they did not need, the City watchdog has revealed.

Security products were sold to customers of 11 high street banks, including Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Santander and The Royal Bank of Scotland, according to the Financial Conduct Authority.

Issued by Affinion International Limited but sold under names including 'Card Protection', 'Sentinel', 'Sentinel Protection' and 'Safe and Secure Plus', the policies were marketed as offering protection if the card was lost or stolen.

However, the bank or issuer usually offers cover for everything over £50 if transactions take place before the card is reported missing, so for many the product would be redundant.

In rational, post-Enlightenment Europe, religion has long since been relegated to a safe space, with Judaism and Christianity the safe targets of satire in secular western societies.

Inevitable Payback - by Ambassador Craig Murray

In this globalised world, if we launch weapons of great destructive power into communities abroad, incinerating and shredding women and children, we cannot avoid the fact that those who identify with those communities – ethnically, culturally and religiously – will take revenge on people here. If we are lucky it will be revenge on combatants. If we are unlucky it will be on our innocents. But either way, the truth is this. We caused it.

Don't let frackers in national parks or ancient woodlands, says MPs: Call for delay to drilling amid concerns including noise and polluting water supplies

A powerful committee of MPs today demand a ban on fracking in Britain’s National Parks, ancient woodlands and other protected countryside.

The Environmental Audit Committee says there should be a moratorium on drilling for shale in the rest of the UK amid concerns including noise and pollution of water supplies.

Its report is published as ministers face a rebellion from senior Tories who have warned they could vote against fracking in the House of Commons today.

The fracking cover-up: Defra censors key report 63 times in 13 pages in move described as 'comical' by campaigners

A key report on the impact of fracking was censored 63 times in just 13 pages.

Even the author's name was among the redactions by Whitehall officials, which have been described as 'comical' by campaigners.

The internal report, written in March by Defra's Rural Community Policy Unit, has now brought fresh accusations that the Government has something to hide over the effects of shale gas exploration.

Deleted sections included eight from the executive summary, four from the chapter on economic impacts, four from the section on social impacts, and 17 from the analysis of the impact on local services.

The chapter examining the effect of drilling on house prices had three sections cut. Only three paragraphs survive in the conclusion.

Barack to Bibi: Stop “Meddling” In Our Politics

An unidentified senior American official said that Obama warned Netanyahu “not to meddle in the battle” Obama was “waging against Congress over the sanctions legislation”

One week later, after secret meetings with Ron Dermer, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner invited Israel’s Prime Minister to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress February 11.

It is unprecedented for a House speaker to invite a foreign leader to speak to the Congress without prior consultation and agreement with the President of the United States.

Western fawning to shore up Saudi House of Cards

The fawning by the American and British governments toward Saudi Arabia over the death of King Abdullah is for good – albeit unspoken – reasons. The oil-rich feudal kingdom is a lynchpin of Western hegemony in the strategically vital Middle East region. At a time when the region is gripped by instability more than ever, the House of Saud now enters a dangerous period of transition, which presents deep alarm to the Western patrons.

Congress Seeks Netanyahu’s Direction

Showing who some in Congress believe is the real master of U.S. foreign policy, House Speaker John Boehner has invited Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session and offer a rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s comments on world affairs in his State of the Union speech.

Boehner made clear that Netanyahu’s third speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress – scheduled for Feb. 11 – was meant to counter Obama’s assessments.

“There is a serious threat in the world, and the President last night kind of papered over it,” Boehner said on Wednesday. “And the fact is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”

Press Rebellion in the UK – British Media Launches Protest Against Spying, as GCHQ Places Investigative Journalism in Same Category as Terrorism

Go ahead and read that last paragraph again. In some respects,terrorists are viewed as a lower priority than investigative journalists by the GCHQ. More proof that the “war on terror” is a total sham, and that governments around the world see transparency, truth and their own citizenry as the real enemies.

This is precisely why UK Prime Minister David Cameron wasted no time in exploiting the tragic attacks in Paris in order to call for a banning of encryption, i.e., private communications.

The ISIS comedy continues…

Much of the Western world has reluctantly signed up with America’s counterfeit crusade against the radical group. And now Japan has been suckered into the madness...

These cowards in high places have resorted to fantastical lies and clownish frauds to keep us complacent and ignorant.

This latest chicanery should make you grin.

Just hours after Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made an “anti-terrorism” pact with Israel and pledged $200 million towards the anti-ISIS coalition led by the United States, ISIS released a video threatening to kill two Japanese hostages.

The infamous British-accented Islamic State fighter, who allegedly beheaded a string of hostages over recent months including American photojournalist James Foley, appears in a new video demanding a ransom of $200 million in exchange for the release of the two Japanese captives.

The ‘hasbara’ tweeps who brought down Jim Clancy, and their ties to Israel and the Israel lobby

As the hardly left-leaning Thomas Friedman has explained, even espousing the U.S. State Department’s official policy that settlements are illegal and East Jerusalem is an occupied city can stop a career before it starts.

Veteran CNN journalist Jim Clancy’s resignation this week is one of the odder media fallouts from the Charlie Hebdo Paris attack. On January 7, Clancy got into a late night Twitter spat regarding the French satirical magazine with online adversaries. When he told them they were ganging up on him and practicing “hasbara,” the Hebrew word for “explaining” that describes pro-Israel advocacy often at the behest of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they lashed back as if the term were libelous.

A million and a half people in Paris take to the streets – about 6 million throughout Europe – all screaming or carrying posters with a maddening, inexplicable “Je Suis Charlie” – depicting an utterly brainwashed mindset, brainwashed for decades with Washington directed mind control.

“The Duke is hosting an event for entrepreneurs… and is understood to have decided that the ongoing controversy will be an ‘elephant in the room’ if he does not tackle it head-on… Buckingham Palace has invited a TV cameraman, a photographer and a reporter to record what would be his first public comments about the saga since it began at the start of the month,” The Telegraph reported.

Proof oil and energy giants ARE ripping us off - as prices tumble we pay 40% too much for power and 18% extra for petrol

The price of gas produced in Britain and abroad is set on the wholesale energy markets. At the moment, it’s around 1.55p for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of gas.

Households, in turn, typically pay their energy supplier 5.08p per kWh of gas they use - a difference of 3.53p.

The last time suppliers paid a similar price to today’s 1.55p was April 2010. At that time, households paid 3.62p per kWh, according to figures from data experts ICIS Heren and comparison website Energyhelpline. So the difference then was 2.07p.

Based on average household consumption, the average annual gas bill is £686 today. But assuming the same consumption level, households in April 2010 would have had an annual bill of £489 - £197 lower. This means consumers are paying 40 per cent more for their fuel today.

Cooperation between British spies and Gaddafi’s Libya revealed in official papers

Britain’s intelligence agencies engaged in a series of previously unknown joint operations with Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s government and used the information extracted from rendition victims as evidence during partially secret court proceedings in London, according to an analysis of official documents recovered in Tripoli since the Libyan revolution.

The exhaustive study of the papers from the Libyan government archives shows the links between MI5, MI6 and Gaddafi’s security agencies were far more extensive than previously thought and involved a number of joint operations in which Libyan dissidents were unlawfully detained and allegedly tortured.

At one point, Libyan intelligence agents were invited to operate on British soil, where they worked alongside MI5 and allegedly intimidated a number of Gaddafi opponents who had been granted asylum in the UK.

Secret file detailing 'unnatural sexual behaviour' at Westminster during VIP paedophile scandal in 80s is discovered and 'was probably seen by Margaret Thatcher'

A top secret file detailing 'unnatural sexual' behaviour at Westminster has been unearthed in a cache of documents likely to have been seen by Margaret Thatcher.

The paperwork, written at the height of the VIP paedophile scandal in 1980, has been classified for for 35 years on grounds of national security and is still in the hands of the Cabinet Office.

Civil servants say that it is too sensitive to be released - but it will be handed to the inquiry into the VIP paedophile ring at Westminster during the 1970s and 1980s.

The letter offered to interview the prince under oath ‘at a time and place of your choosing’. But her lawyers stated: ‘Federal Express has informed us that the letter has been refused by the recipient.’

The latest documents filed at Palm Beach court house in Florida make plain Miss Roberts’s determination to pursue the Prince – who she said ‘I just called “Andy”.’

She says she was a sex slave loaned out by paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein to his friend Andrew when she was aged 17 in 2001, claiming: ‘Whatever Prince Andrew wanted, I was to make sure he got.’

On the other hand, the latest reports from Saudi Arabia show Crown Prince huddled with a delegation of American senators led by John McCain to discuss the Pentagon plan to arm and train the Syrian rebels. It seems for a moment that the ‘regime change’ agenda in Syria is back on the front burner of the Obama administration’s Middle East policies.

However, that will be overlooking the remarks by US secretary of state John Kerry on Wednesday voicing support for the Russian efforts to kick start negotiations between the Syrian government and the opposition figures in Moscow as well as de Mistura’s efforts for an Aleppo ceasefire.

The Danger of an MH-17 ‘Cold Case’

The Obama administration continues to drag its feet on releasing U.S. intelligence evidence on who shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 six months ago, a failure that has given the guilty parties time to scatter and has created a new breeding ground for conspiracy theories.

Now more than six months after the shoot-down of a Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine, the refusal of the Obama administration to make public what intelligence evidence it has about who was responsible has created fertile ground for conspiracy theories to take root while reducing hopes for holding the guilty parties accountable.

Given the U.S. government’s surveillance capabilities – from satellite and aerial photographs to telephonic and electronic intercepts to human sources – American intelligence surely has a good idea what happened on July 17, 2014, when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashed in eastern Ukraine killing all 298 people onboard.

That city is, of course, the country’s second largest and still ruled by the new “caliphate” proclaimed by Islamic State head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. All in all, not exactly inspiring stuff.

You can’t have victory if you have no idea where the finish line is. But there is one bright side to the situation. If you can’t create Victory in Iraq for future VI Day parades, you can at least make a profit from the disintegrating situation there.

Government Agency Classifies Journalists with Terrorists

Derrick Broze
Activist Post

New revelations from documents released by whistleblower Edward Snowden indicate the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) classifies investigative journalists as a threat, similar to terrorists and hackers.

The Guardian reported on the program which monitored emails to and from journalists working for media organizations in the U.S. and the UK. In one single day, in less than 10 minutes, the GCHQ collected 70,000 emails, including emails of journalists with the BBC, Reuters, the Guardian, the New York Times, the Sun, NBC, and the Washington Post. The emails were collected through the GCHQ accessing the fiber-optic cables known as “the backbone of the internet.” The communications were then shared with staff on the agencies intranet...

UK to launch enhanced “anti-terror measures” and domestic use of troops

The former head of Britain’s intelligence agency MI5, Lord Evans, has added his voice to demands for a clampdown on the Internet and e-communications in the wake of the terror assaults on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris and a Jewish supermarket, in which 17 people were killed.

Iraq war report 'delayed until after UK election'

The official inquiry into the 2003 Iraq War will not publish its long-awaited report before the general election, the BBC understands.

The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson said inquiry chairman Sir John Chilcot is expected to confirm in a letter to David Cameron that it will be delayed until after May's poll.

The inquiry began its work in 2009 and held its last public hearing in 2011.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said the delay was "incomprehensible".

And the Liberal Democrat leader said that the public would assume the delay was caused by those criticised in the report attempting to "sex it down".

Sky to block pornography by default to protect children

Broadband provider Sky will block adult content by default, unless users opt out, it has revealed.

The decision was announced in a blog post and will be phased in over coming weeks.

In 2013 Prime Minister David Cameron put pressure on internet service provider [ISPs] to make online filtering mandatory, saying it was the best way to protect children.

His request caused controversy among politicians and the internet industry.

Since then most of the UK's ISPs have offered filtering software for parents concerned about what their children may be able to access online but few have offered this by default, opting instead to allow parents or other customers to turn the filters on if they want them.

What David Cameron just proposed would endanger every Briton and destroy the IT industry

This, then, is what David Cameron is proposing:

* All Britons' communications must be easy for criminals, voyeurs and foreign spies to intercept

* Any firms within reach of the UK government must be banned from producing secure software

* All major code repositories, such as Github and Sourceforge, must be blocked

* Search engines must not answer queries about web-pages that carry secure software

* Virtually all academic security work in the UK must cease -- security research must only take place in proprietary research environments where there is no onus to publish one's findings, such as industry R&D and the security services

* All packets in and out of the country, and within the country, must be subject to Chinese-style deep-packet inspection and any packets that appear to originate from secure software must be dropped

* Existing walled gardens (like Ios and games consoles) must be ordered to ban their users from installing secure software

The Surveillance State Is Coming to a Pub Near You

The CCTV cameras are slowly being switched off in Britain's austerity hit streets and town centres as, one by one, skint local councils and police forces decide they are not worth the overheads.

Before the money ran out, CCTV was the darling of crime prevention. In the 1990s, the Home Office spent three quarters of its entire crime prevention budget on CCTV cameras.

Scotland's struggling North Sea oil industry WILL be bailed out by British taxpayers, Osborne admits

Scotland’s struggling oil industry will be bailed out by the UK Government, George Osborne revealed today.

The Chancellor said he had already cut taxes on North Sea oil to protect jobs in the industry, amid rapidly falling prices, but would take ‘further steps at the Budget’ in March to help.

But Mr Osborne also revealed that MPs representing Scottish constituencies could be barred from voting on parts of the Budget after the election – once the Edinburgh government had been handed sweeping new powers over tax and spending.

Charlie Hebdo, Zionism & Media Deception

Mustapha pondered whether the attack was stage-managed by the intelligence services, considering the two deceased suspects were being closely surveyed and watched by French intelligence and police for years, their names even showing up on ‘terror watch’ and ‘no fly’ lists.

Mustapha noted in the interview that in Western countries “the full force of the law” is brought down upon critics of Zionism, whereas anti-Islamic neocon zealots are given a platform on mainstream media to spout lies and deceptions intended to demonize Muslims and Middle Eastern countries such as Iraq, Iran, Syria and Libya.

Challenge for Pope: Seize Chance for Religious Renewal

The world now needs a fearless champion with clout, another overturner of money tables, scatterer of vested interests, exposer of hypocrisy and scourge of the unjust... a genuinely heroic figure that ordinary folk around the world can look up to.

In any month nearly 200 Palestinian children are held in Israeli military detention and the numbers remain fairly constant.

His Holiness, on reflection, must know that the situation in Palestine is wretchedly deplorable and an ugly stain on civilization generally and Christendom in particular for allowing it to happen. Praying with villains like Peres and accepting their refusal to allow access to Gaza’s communities doesn’t cut the mustard. Extraordinary evil requires extraordinary measures.

Save you prayers, Holiness, for someone and something more deserving.
Are we just people who use fine and pious words?

Trolling Russia

The edifice of world post-1991 order is collapsing right now before our eyes. President Putin’s decision to give a miss to the Auschwitz pilgrimage, right after his absence in Paris at the Charlie festival, gave it the last shove. It was good clean fun to troll Russia, as long as it stayed the course. Not anymore. Russia broke the rules.

Neither willingly nor easily did Russia break ranks. Putin tried to take Western baiting in his stride: be it Olympic games, Syria confrontation, gender politics, Georgian border, even Crimea-related sanctions. The open economic warfare was a game-changer. Russia felt attacked by falling oil prices, by rouble trouble, by credit downgrading. These developments are considered an act of hostility, rather than the result of “the hidden hand of the market”.

If the initiators expected Russians to be mad at Putin, they miscalculated. The Russian public is angry with the American organizers of the economical warfare, not with its own government.

Challenge for Pope: Seize Chance for Religious Renewal

The world now needs a fearless champion with clout, another overturner of money tables, scatterer of vested interests, exposer of hypocrisy and scourge of the unjust... a genuinely heroic figure that ordinary folk around the world can look up to.

Not many weeks after that bizarre presidential pray-in with the Pope, Israel launched its most recent murder spree, Operation Protective Edge, slaughtering nearly 2,200 including more than 500 children, seriously injuring thousands more, making countless families homeless, wreaking massive destruction on vital infrastructure and causing lethal public health problems.

His Holiness, on reflection, must know that the situation in Palestine is wretchedly deplorable and an ugly stain on civilization generally and Christendom in particular for allowing it to happen. Praying with villains like Peres and accepting their refusal to allow access to Gaza’s communities doesn’t cut the mustard. Extraordinary evil requires extraordinary measures.

The Syrian Ambassador’s Complaint

This is why they want to privatize the United Nations, so that the influential donors can control the decision-making mechanisms, without giving a damn about the provisions of the Charter.

Dr. Bashar al-Ja’afari, sat down with Al-Akhbar for an interview.
The veteran diplomat, who has held his position at the UN since 2006, and lives restricted to a 25-mile radius of New York City, has much more to say than the half hour allowed. Defiant as always, he discussed the challenges he faces at the UN, explained why he thinks the organization has lost its way, and censured Western states and media for their hostility toward the Syrian government.

Shale revolution on a limb, only 11 fracking projects active in UK

The UK’s shale gas ‘revolution’ doesn’t seem to have lived up to its hype, after it was revealed only 11 new exploratory wells are due to be drilled this year, despite the continued fall of oil prices.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has said his government is pushing for a “shale gas revolution,” although only a handful have been confirmed as candidates for fracking, according to official government statements.

Energy firms involved in fracking projects claim the government statements were ‘speculative’ and that suggestions the UK could rely on shale gas for up to thirty years was “optimistic.”

Company behind 'sneaky' new motorway speed cameras is paid £2.1million by the taxpayer so they can catch MORE drivers

The business behind new 'stealth' speed cameras being installed across Britain is being paid £2.1million by the taxpayer to help catch more drivers, it was revealed today.

The controversial devices have caught almost 700 drivers in just two months and unlike traditional yellow speed cameras, they are painted grey, making them harder to spot.

The technology has been introduced to catch drivers breaking the 70mph speed limit on the M25 in Kent.

And the same technology is being introduced on a northern section of the M25 and also parts of the M1, M3, M60 and M6.

Charlie Hebdo, Zionism & Media Deception

On the program I asked Mustapha if Zionism and the octopus of lobby groups that work on its behalf is as big a driving force behind US and broader Western foreign policy as some contend. “France, the US [and other Western countries] are under the domination of Israel,” Mustapha told me. Mustapha contends that Israel’s agents have supplanted all independent leaders in the West, replacing them with grovelling lapdogs who do the bidding of Israel at all costs, even to the detriment to their own people and nations.

We touched on the recent events in Paris, wherein “Islamist” gun-men are said to have carried out a massacre at the headquarters of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and a kosher market. Mustapha pondered whether the attack was stage-managed by the intelligence services, considering the two deceased suspects were being closely surveyed and watched by French intelligence and police for years, their names even showing up on ‘terror watch’ and ‘no fly’ lists.

Aircraft carriers and troops were immediately mobilized, not even losing a day.

Can Obama Untangle from Syria’s Civil War?

Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar would all reject a policy that would allow a regime they regard as an Iranian ally to persist in Syria.

Contradictions between the Obama administration’s policy in Syria and realities on the ground have become so acute that U.S. officials began last November discussing a proposal calling for support of local ceasefires between opposition forces and the Assad regime in dozens of locations across Syria.

The proposal surfaced in two articles in Foreign Policy magazine and in a column by the Washington Post’s David Ignatius. Those indicated that it was under serious consideration by administration officials. In fact, the proposal may even have played a role in a series of four White House meetings during the week of Nov. 6-13, to discuss Syria policy, one of which Obama himself presided over.

Neocons: The ‘Anti-Realists’

This neocon madness – this “anti-realism” – has been playing out in the real world on a grand scale, destroying real lives and endangering the real future of the planet.

The primary distinction between the neocons and the liberal interventionists has been the centrality of Israel in the neocons’ thinking while their liberal sidekicks put “humanitarianism” at the core of their world view. But these differences are insignificant, in practice, since the liberal hawks are politically savvy enough not to hold Israel accountable for its human rights crimes and clever enough to join with the neocons in easy-to-sell “regime change” strategies toward targeted countries with weak lobbies in Washington.

Obama to Senators: Choose U.S. Over Donors

The president urged the lawmakers to “take the long view rather than make a move for short-term political gain”.

On Thursday of last week, President Barack Obama spoke to a group of Democratic senators in a private meeting during a Baltimore hotel political retreat.

He asked the senators not to support a bill, drafted by Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) (left) and Mark Kirk (R-IL), which would add further sanctions on Iran during this time of delicate nuclear negotiations between the U.S., its allies and Iran.

One unnamed senator in the room told the New York Times that Obama said that “as a former senator himself, he understood how outside forces — like special interests and donors — can influence senators to act”.

Charlie Hebdo: A Convoluted World

Zionist Israelis have a history of false flag terrorist attacks in many countries, even against fellow Jews, to encourage Jews to immigrate to occupied Palestine (Israel), to gain sympathy for their occupation of Palestine, and to push Western Christian government to wage crusading wars, as George Bush described them, against Israel’s enemies; Arab and Muslim World in the Middle East, as we have seen in the terrorist attacks of 911 in the US and the 7/7/2005 London bombing. It seems that the Paris terrorist attack carry the same finger prints. What a convoluted Zionist ideology!

Paul Craig Roberts: Charlie Hebdo: Report from Europe

Here is a video of the execution of Amedy Coulibaly. It is a German website with the actual live French video of the police assault on the deli. There are three videos. The first one repeatedly shows Coulibaly with tied hands containing no weapons shot downand killed when he could easily have been captured. It is as if the order was to make sure that there is no live suspect whose story might have to be explained away. The first video also repeatedly shows the execution in slow motion. Commentary in French accompanies the video. http://alles-schallundrauch.blogspot.co.at/2015/01/amedy-coulibaly-wur...

China and Russia launching new credit rating agency in 2015

The setting up of UCRG is in its final stages, ready to challenge the ‘Big Three’ that currently dominate the industry, the Managing Director of RusRating Aleksandr Ovchinnikov told Sputnik News Agency on Tuesday.

“In our opinion, the first ratings [will] appear … during the current year,” Ovchinnikov said, adding that accreditation with the local regulator is already underway.

The news comes on the heels of Fitch’s decision to follow S&P in downgrading Russia’s sovereign credit rating to BBB-, a step above junk level and on par with India and Turkey.

Gas Theft and Auschwitz Snub… Russia’s Every Right to End the Insults

How many insults does the European Union expect Russia to bear without consequences? Ethnic cleansing of Russian people by the Brussels-backed Kiev regime, a refugee crisis on Russia’s borders, economic sanctions based on groundless accusations hurting Russian society – and now this – the neo-Nazi cabal that seized power in Ukraine with CIA backing last year has repeatedly been found guilty of siphoning off Russia’s natural gas exports to the EU.

Russia’s objective is simply this: to put an end to the Kiev regime’s de facto theft of Russian gas exports to Europe. How much more reasonable can that be?

No doubt the dutiful Western corporate media will crank up the «Putin as arch villain» narrative. Families freezing across Europe will be attributed to the «evil genius» of the «Soviet mastermind».

West Ham football club sponsor and currency broker Alpari has shut its UK arm following the Swiss National Bank's decision to end its capping of the Swiss franc against the euro.

As a result, the majority of Alpari clients had "sustained losses".

"Where a client cannot cover this loss, it is passed on to us," it said.

"This has forced Alpari (UK) Limited to confirm today that it has entered into insolvency."

Dying ‘good career move’ for French hate-mag

As ever, the Muslim world is responding with restraint and dignity to the latest vile conduct by Western so-called free-speech secularism.

The French so-called satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo – more accurately a hate-inciting, racist rag – has published its first post-massacre edition this week, with print sales going through the roof.

The magazine has abused the principle of free speech as a cynical cover to promote hate speech and in particular to foment prejudice against the Muslim population of France and Europe more generally.

Muslims have become the most vulnerable community in Europe and around the world for persecution by Western state and non-state bigots. Over the past week, Muslim communities and places of worship have been attacked by mobs in Germany and France amid the climate of hatred that the likes of Charlie Hebdo and its state benefactors have been responsible for.

Following is a deeply disturbing excerpt from a civil lawsuit filed by a Caltech professor against Caltech, often named the world’s top research university. Caltech’s official name is the California Institute of Technology.

According to the lawsuit, a small coterie of Caltech professors and administrators ignored Israeli spying and theft of taxpayer-funded U.S. technology and then retaliated against the professor for reporting it.

BP sheds 300 jobs as $49-a-barrel world crude price forces UK oil firms to slash operations

The oil price crash has sparked fears of widespread job cuts as industry giant BP shed 200 staff and 100 contractors.

Joining Shell, Tullow and Premier in announcing a shake-up of operations, BP said the job cuts apply to onshore roles not offshore operations.

Politicians in Westminster and Scotland are being pressed to take urgent action as BP announced the job reductions at a briefing today at the firm's North Sea headquarters in Aberdeen.

Other firms under the cosh include Tullow Oil, which today wrote off £2billion of exploration work and cut investment amid expectations of job cuts, Royal Dutch Shell which has axed a £4.3billion project in Qatar, and Premier Oil which slashed spending by 40 per cent and wrote off nearly £200million yesterday.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans."

THE BOMBING THAT STARTED IT ALL!

Menachem Begin planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish "terrorist" gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical "Stern Gang," which committed many vicious atrocities.

Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that "it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets." The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel was created with a false-flag attack; the July 2, 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, then being used to house British administration officials. Although carried out by Israelis, the Palestinians were framed for the "terror" attack, to turn the British against the Palestinians! Keep this history of Israel in mind when evaluating Paris, or anything else that goes "bang" and is then blamed on Muslims.

Willcox replied: “Many critics, though, of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.”

She countered: “We can’t do an amalgam.”

Government Surveillance: A Greater Threat Than Terrorism

Ted Baumann
Activist Post

The man sat on the floor, awkwardly wedged into the far corner of his apartment, his knees drawn up under his chin. The faltering light from the dirty window barely illuminated the book balanced on his knees. Periodically he bent closer to see the words as he scrawled out his thoughts with a dull pencil.

This was the only way he could express himself beyond the scrutiny of government surveillance that sought to know and record his every thought and action.

You may recognize this scene, one of the most arresting from George Orwell’s dystopian fiction classic, Nineteen Eighty-Four. Winston Smith was breaking the law by seeking privacy outside the range of the “telescreen” in his apartment.

In an irony that would no doubt give Orwell grim satisfaction in his own prescience, Britons today are being pursued and prosecuted under an Act of Parliament designed to curb terrorism … for failing to pay a license fee for the televisions in their own homes...

“(S)everal hours after (he said) he would not be traveling to Paris, his office issued a statement stating that he would in fact be at the march.”

“Hollande’s anger at Netanyahu was evident during (Sunday evening’s) ceremony,” said Haaretz. Held at Paris’ Grand Synagogue. “(A)ttended by hundreds of members of the local Jewish community. Hollande sat through most of the ceremony, but when Netanyahu’s turn at the podium arrived,” he walked out. A snub easily noticed.

British taxpayers paid around £250,000 to extradite cleared murder suspect Shrien Dewani to face trial in South Africa, according to reports.

Mr Dewani’s trial began in October, but collapsed before his defence even began, after the judge deemed the prosecution’s evidence as “riddled with contradictions”.

FLASHBACK - Serb TV station was legitimate target, says Blair

Nato leaders yesterday scrambled to justify the bombing of Serbia's state television station in an attack which killed a number of civilian workers and marked a further widening in the scope of targets now considered legitimate.

The attack on the building in the centre of Belgrade - which contradicted an apparent assurance by Nato this month that only transmitters would be hit - was condemned by international journalists' organisations, representing both employers and unions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, attacks on Islam-phobic media are BAAAAAAD, but attacks on the other guy's media are GOOOOOOD!

“Je suis Ali Abbas”: The Forgotten Victims of State Terrorism

Dr. Halpin’s summary in this case, encapsulates the terror of state origin – the US and the UK in particular.The UK almost always manages to present a beatific face – at first glance.

Massive terrorist attacks were hatched soon after the pretext of cinematographic ‘terrorist’ attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania on September 9th 2001.

A splinter of this terror came to Ali Abbas, then 12 years of age and formerly of the village of Zafaraniya, near Baghdad about 10 days after the shocking and ‘aweing’ started.

Taking the mickey: war crimes suspects led Paris anti-terror march

They should have been arrested as soon as they landed in Paris, clapped in irons and dragged to The Hague

I sat down to watch the Paris march commemorating Charlie with curiosity, for this important outpouring of ordinary people’s fears and resolve had been hi-jacked by the French government in a nauseating attempt to de-odorise some of its terror-dealing friends by hosting and parading them at the head of the march.

Theresa May Wants Database To Track All EU-Passengers

The home secretary, Theresa May, led demands for a new Europe-wide travel database to track the movement of all air, train and ferry passengers at an emergency meeting of EU interior ministers in Paris on Sunday.

While 4 million people marched in the name of liberty across France, the EU ministers, joined by senior US ministers, agreed to step up their drive against radicalisation, particularly on the internet, and to disrupt the movement of terrorist networks.

MI5 and David Cameron Push For New Surveillance Powers

David Cameron appears to want to strengthen the laws that allow the security services to intercept communications so that no method or element of online communication is out of reach of the state, as long as they have a warrant personally signed by the home secretary. The security services complain that the growth of encryption of online data means there are already services available that are sold as guaranteeing privacy or are in some other way beyond the reach of the intelligence services.

Angry MPs challenge ‘stitch-up’ over delay of Chilcot report on war in Iraq

Furious MPs are planning a parliamentary debate to challenge an alleged “stitch-up” that could delay the report of the Iraq war inquiry until after the general election.

A cross-party coalition has demanded that parliament’s backbench committee allocate half a day to discussing the continuing delay in publishing the Chilcot inquiry’s findings, which are expected to include severe criticism of the UK’s decision to join the US-led invasion in 2003.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should include the Downing Street memo and the "Dodgy Dossier."

Fox News man is 'complete idiot' for Birmingham Muslim comments – David Cameron

The Fox News presenter who said the British city of Birmingham was a no-go zone for non-Muslims is a “complete idiot”, prime minister David Cameron has said.

“When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April fool’s day,” Cameron said. “This guy’s clearly a complete idiot.”

Terrorism expert Steven Emerson claimed on US news channel Fox News that non-Muslims do not go to Birmingham, which he said had become a “totally Muslim” city.

Police asked to investigate G4S over Guantanamo role

British security firm G4S could be criminally liable for its involvement in Guantanamo Bay, according to a new complaint filed with the Metropolitan Police.

Legal charity Reprieve, which represents several Guantanamo detainees, has reported the UK company to police after learning of a $113 million (£71 million) contract for G4S to supply ‘base services’ at the US prison through its US subsidiary, G4S Government Solutions (G4S GS). The exact nature of the services to be provided under the contract is unclear, prompting concerns that the company could be complicit in rights abuses under way at the prison, such as force-feeding.

Charlie Hebdo Massacre: Another Staged Event to Incite War and Destroy Freedom?

Many analysts are questioning the dubious timing and nature of all of these incidents, which come at just the right moment to lend credence to the US-led coalition against ISIS.It is nothing short of miraculous that just as various Western countries gear up for military strikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, ‘terror incidents’ hit their respective homelands right on cue to give the politicians their belated ‘casus belli’ for joining the campaign to be rid of ISIS.

French politicians and other Western leaders have been pontificating about Western ‘values’ and have selectively invoked ‘freedom of speech.’ “We live in a free and open democracy which has freedom of speech,” the West’s dishonest leaders say.

“Radical Muslims don’t believe in ‘our values,’ hence the necessity to fight them overseas” is the standard establishment talking point, trotted out time and again by the professional script readers fronting as presidents and prime ministers.

Westminster paedophile ring: Top Tory MP 'murdered girl at vile orgy' claims new witness

The new witness has told police he watched the teenager being taken into a ­terrifying “medical room” by a senior Tory MP – and never saw her again.

The sickening events are said to have taken place at London’s notorious Dolphin Square flats in the 1990s, the Sunday People can reveal.

He fears the teenager may have been killed by a brutal sadist acting out his horrific fantasies.

It would make her the fourth reported murder victim of a Westminster-based pervert ring, some of them household names.

Israel Big Winners at ICC: Palestinians and US Taxpayers Too!

Turn on Your Smart Phone! Justice Calling! See You in Court!

This past week the International Criminal Court at the Hague accepted the application of Palestine to join the court. This so-called risky move by Palestinian President Abbas was both applauded by the world and sadly panned by the USA and Israel as being provocative and an obstacle to the “peace process”.Strange the USA and Israeli governments attempt to argue against a day in civil court right? Talk about being on the wrong side of humanity! Ouch!

I mean there is NO better way to behave in a civil society with our fellow man than going to court.

Going to court is the most excellent non-violent way to seek justice when injustice exists unchecked. It exposes our bad behavior to objective peers for a judgment that help us all better live together under commonly held values. Yet here we are watching the lost USA and Israel stand-alone against justice! Sad really!

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

Speaking outside Elysée Palace in the aftermath of this week’s terror killings in France, former President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned the violence as “an attack on civilization.” Coiffured, sun-tanned and nattily dressed, Sarkozy’s solemn words made him appear like the embodiment of civility.

That’s a quaint turn in etiquette by a politician who is mired in allegations of sleaze and corruption, as well as war crimes.

Sarkozy wasn’t too concerned about “civilization” when he and his British allies launched the NATO bombing campaign of Libya in March 2011 in stark violation of a UN mandate. That seven-month onslaught led to the murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – from whom Sarkozy had gladly received hush-hush political donations in the past, before stabbing him in the back.

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

A satirical magazine championed by Western war criminals for its “free speech” to dehumanize Muslims is hailed as “heroic?” While an informative, serious news channel like Press TV is banned. Now that is farcical cartoon.

Evidently, it’s acceptable to insult Islam, according to Western select use of free speech because it suits political agendas of demonizing Muslim countries so that they can be attacked with Western warplanes or covert terrorist proxies. But it is not acceptable to satirize Zionism or Western ruling classes.

The Guardian Finally Starts To Report The Truth About Ukraine's War

On January 7th, Britain's Guardian, which used to be a fine newspaper but isn't now, started what will necessarily be a long road back to reality, after nearly a year of their intermittent inattention and Western propaganda on Ukraine — finally realistically reporting the war there as being what it is and always was: an attempt by the post-coup Ukrainian Government to destroy the area in Ukraine where the residents had voted 90% for the Ukrainian President who was overthrown in the February 2014 coup.

Paris attack becomes Political Football in Israel and Palestine

France has recently supported the Palestinian people and their cause at the UN Security Council, causing panic among Israeli officials in Tel Aviv who have said on several occasions that they fear they have lost the entire European continent as a result. They have also expressed worries that the European position, led by France, is turning against the Israeli occupation and in favor of the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, independence, and statehood.

Many Israeli analysts have urged authorities in their country to work to regain European support, fearing that losing France would mean losing Europe as a whole. The response to these fears has been an unprecedented campaign of Israeli incitement against Muslim immigrants in Europe.

Europe is still capable of differentiating between a bunch of crazy terrorists, a crazy occupation, and an innocent citizen living under occupation seeking help.

NATO Trips on Own Lies with U-Turn on ‘Russian Aggressor’

With the flip of a coin, it seems, all this grave anti-Russian bombast is suddenly redundant, with the US-led NATO alliance, through its European civilian cypher Stoltenberg, apparently stretching out the hand of co-operation to Russia.

NATO’s civilian figurehead Jens Stoltenberg this week urged Russia to be a partner against terrorism. He was speaking the day after the deadly gun attack on a magazine in Paris where 12 people, including three police officers, were killed by assailants purporting to be affiliated with radical Islamists.

During a visit to Germany, the NATO general secretary called upon Moscow to be “an ally in the fight against terrorism” – adding: “We think it is important that Russia, which is our biggest neighbor in Europe, and NATO are working together on important issues like fighting terror.”

A review of David Smith-Ferri’s “Where Days Are Stones”

Notwithstanding, the worlds of journalism and the Arts are seldom bridged. Universities endow “chairs” for poets who eschew the ugly side of human existence, so that those “honored few” may focus on their own cerebral delectations. The prose of modern journalists seldom, if ever, rises to the loftiest levels of observers like Shakespeare, Euripides, Dante, Hemingway or Edna Millay. And yet, as journalists or artists, many strive to weave ourselves into the fabric of our times; to capture the Zeitgeist—to make it knowable; to join the conversation. David Smith-Ferri is one such weaver, one such poet-journalist, who proves his value again in his third collection of poems, Where Days Are Stones (143 pp; Haley’s, Athol, MA; 2014).

“Now there is nowhere to hide
from their message
and the question it implies:
War is a horror. Always.
What am I doing to stop
and prevent it?”

Flashback - The 7/7 London Bombings: How to Set Up a Patsy

The first surveillance footage of the leaders of the July 7 bomb plot has been shown to a jury, showing them meeting with a “committed terrorist” outside an East London kebab shop. The video ... shows Mohammed Sidique Khan, with a beard and short hair, and Shezhad Tanweer, wearing a woolly hat, as they walk down a street in Upton Park, East London with four other men. [Telegraph]

Note the date of the surveillance video.

Mohammad Sidique Khan, the teacher who killed himself and six others in the Edgware Road bombing, attended Parliament as the guest of a Labour MP. He was invited in July 2004 by Jon Trickett MP in his capacity as a learning mentor at Hillside Primary School in Beeston, Leeds where Mr Tickett's wife Sarah is headteacher. [Telegraph]

West’s sickening moral hijack of Paris massacre

The Western reaction to the massacre at a French magazine this week is sickening. Western leaders, from US President Barack Obama to Pope Francis, from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth to United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, have all come out in force to issue statements of condemnation and condolences over the mass killing of 12 people by two gunmen at a Parisienne office.

But let’s put the slaughter of the French journalists and two policemen in perspective.

We should not allow the ultimate authors of international violence to hide behind the selective mourning for victims of terrorism.

Questions, doubts as France grieves

The Wednesday attack at a Paris office of Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine indeed was a tragic incident. The police say they have launched a manhunt for two suspects in the case and that a third has already surrendered. With France now in a high state of alert, things look set for the case to be over soon. Nevertheless, serious doubts still exist over what prompted the massacre and who will eventually benefit from Paris’ most violent attack in many years.

Sepahpour-Ulrich further expressed regret that in order to demonize Islam, every act committed or presumed to be committed by a national from the Islamic faith is automatically dubbed terrorism “whereas heinous terrorist acts by others is not considered terrorism”.

‘Begging’ for help: UK asks US to assist in search for Russian sub off Scotland

Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has been forced to ask the American military for assistance in searching for a Russian submarine in its territorial waters due to budget cuts.

Two American maritime patrol planes have been conducting searches off the Scottish coast since News Year’s Eve.

The MoD was forced to ask the US for help because of a controversial decision to scrap the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) £4 billion fleet of Nimrod surveillance aircraft in 2010.

The suspected presence of a Russian submarine is believed to be linked to the recent departure of a British nuclear submarine from Faslane naval base at Gare Loch on the Firth of Clyde.

Prince Andrew allegations: Duke of York is not above the law says top Home Office committee

Pressure was mounting on Prince Andrew last night over bombshell claims he slept with a teenage “sex slave”, as a top politician insisted he “should not be above the law”.

The Duke of York emphatically denies allegations he had sex three times with Virginia Roberts, then 17, while she was working for his former close friend and convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

But veteran Labour MP Paul Flynn, who sits on the influential Home Affairs Select Committee, said the royal still had questions to answer.

Professor Kosher, Israel’s leading evolutionary psychoarcheologist and a renown advocate of applied Eugenics told The Jewish Scientific Daily (JSD) that the apparent physical resemblance between Woody Alan and Alan Dershowitz’s facial features gives new hope for a scientific break through.

Prince Andrew could face a Scotland Yard investigation over sex abuse claims

The Duke of York could face a Scotland Yard investigation into Virginia Roberts’s claims if she makes a formal complaint against him, police sources have confirmed.

Despite the fact that all criminal prosecutions are brought in the name of the Queen, members of the Royal family are not immune from the law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much as I like to see Andrew (and Dershowitz) sweat a bit, I am wondering if this is not a variation on the Dominic Strauss Khan gambit by the bankers. Strauss got too close to the issue of the missing gold, and was ejected with a tawdry sex scandal. This story about Andrew and Virginia Roberts actually goes back three years. So why the sudden heating up now?

Britain has been making noises about leaving the EU. Maybe this scandal is being used to blackmail the royals into supporting keeping Britain tangled up in Europe.

The Sovereign Nation of Shetland

It is obviously not in the interests of Scotland or the UK to give Shetland any more autonomy and this campaign is doomed to achieving nothing more than superficial concessions. However, now that the Crown has shown in court that it is unable to produce any proof that Shetland is part of Scotland or the UK, the onus is on our representatives to make sure that the powers they are asking for belong to those they are asking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a case before the Scottish Courts right now over this uss,e and it will be interesting to see how Scotland, with its recent fight to declare independence from Great Britain, handles the issue that there seems to be no legal proof that Shetland or Orkney are part of Scotland.

Of course, we have the same issue here in Hawaii.

PRINCE ANDREW & JEFFREY EPSTEIN: Can the Palace really make the denial stick?

Prince Andrew’s flat and emphatic denial of any complicity in abuse of a minor in 2001 suggests just how seriously Buckingham Palace is taking the resurfacing allegations about his sex life.

I first posted on this affair just over two years ago. The circumstantial and affidavit evidence now available in a new Court case accusing Jeffrey Epstein of pimping minors for the sexual gratification of himself and others is nothing more than consistent with the charges that sent him to jail four years ago. What remains a mystery wrapped up in socialite privilege is how Epstein managed to spend just 13 months in the poky, when trafficking charges such as those usually carry 10-20 year sentence guidance in US Courts.

Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz named in US lawsuit over underage sex allegations

British press reports today that a woman claims that Jewish banker Jeffrey Epstein loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave.” The woman has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz.

The woman, who filed the motion anonymously, alleges that between 1999 and 2002 she was repeatedly sexually abused by Epstein who, she also alleges, loaned her out to rich and influential men around the world.

The British press is obviously interested in developments related to prince Andrew. But I am actually curious to hear what the ethnic cleansing enthusiast Alan Dershowitz has to say in his defence.

Desmond Tutu: ‘Put Tony Blair in the dock for war crimes’

Groomed by the intelligence services from his early college days, he didn’t bat an eyelid while lying to his electorate – and to the world about fictional WMD’s in Iraq, and he dazzled George W. Bush with his alluring pillow talk, used his cozy globalist-appointed positions and high-flying (albeit meaningless) titles to broker deals for JP Morgan investment elite, while he creates wonderous business opportunities on the backs of the world’s poor – he is the world’s most hated man, and he doesn’t drink Dos Equis (but he does drinks Cristal).

Certainly, it’s a charmed life for the man with the fake smile. Recently, 21WIRE reported how he caused a PR meltdown at the international children’s charity, Save the Children, after someone tried to him a “Global Legacy Award” (spooky). The charity are now deeply regretting that move, calling the whole affair ‘a painful experience’.

Two more ministers accused in the VIP child abuse scandal: MP wants Secrets Act lifted to let police speak out

Scotland Yard has been handed the names of two more former Government ministers accused of sexually abusing children.

Campaigning MP John Mann said he was approached last week by a victim who claims to have been abused by the politicians – one a peer – in the 1980s and has passed the detailed allegations to detectives.

The latest phase in his search for the truth about a suspected Westminster child sex ring came as he called for retired detectives to be granted an unprecedented amnesty from the Official Secrets Act to help lift the lid on alleged VIP abusers.

Leaked documents raise new questions over UK complicity in secret US drone strikes

Previously secret documents obtained by Der Speigel – including a ‘Kill List’ that included both Pakistani and Afghan targets – have raised new concerns about British complicity in the US’s covert drone war in Pakistan.

The documents, detailed in an article published yesterday evening, show that NATO and British forces in Afghanistan planned to target and kill individuals that were located across the border in Pakistan. The UK government has consistently denied that it has taken strikes outside of Afghanistan and has refused to confirm whether and to what extent it is involved in the CIA’s covert drone war in Pakistan.
