Claims that boys were murdered by VIP sex ring are credible and true - police

Scotland Yard has said claims by a witness that a “VIP” sex abuse ring murdered three boys are “credible and true”.

The allegations made by the witness, known by the pseudonym Nick, have triggered a murder investigation.

Police said the alleged abuse by a Westminster-based paedophile ring lasted a decade at locations across London and the Home Counties, including military premises.

Det Supt Kenny McDonald, who is leading the homicide inquiry, told a press conference on Thursday that detectives believed the witness’s claims.

The abuse was said to have taken place from 1975 to 1984, when Nick was aged between seven and 16. Some of the abuse is linked to a flat in Dolphin Square, Pimlico, London, and at times is alleged to have taken place at “parties”. Sometimes it involved groups of men and other times a lone male.

Equal Time for Torturers? Networks grant CIA time to spin report

snip: That's a mild characterization; in fact, as the Washington Post (12/9/14) showed, Hayden's 2007 Senate testimony about CIA torture was revealed to be full of distortions and evasions--from the number of prisoners held by the CIA to his claims that "punches and kicks...have never been employed" and that the "most serious injury" was bruising.

FLASHBACK: No Debate and the New War

snip: The study evaluated discussion and debate segments on the Sunday talk shows (CNN's State of the Union, CBS's Face the Nation, ABC's This Week, Fox News Sunday and NBC's Meet the Press), the PBS NewsHour and a sample of cable news programs that feature roundtables and interview segments (CNN's Situation Room, Fox News Channel's Special Report and MSNBC's Hardball).

The key findings:

--In total, 205 sources appeared on the programs discussing military options in Syria and Iraq. Just six of these guests, or 3 percent, voiced opposition to US military intervention. There were 125 guests (61 percent) who spoke in favor of US war.

--On the high-profile Sunday talk shows, 89 guests were invited to talk about the war. But just one, Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, could be coded as an anti-war guest.

Selling the Wars – Part I by Rebel Fagin

snip: When people protest, government is silent. This plutocratic government responds to its owners and that ain’t the American people. The owners of America make their money selling weapons. This is why demonstrations are not working. This is why some people give up while others take more direct actions. The combination of these factors sells the wars to the people. How long before we quit trying to work with the government and start directly solving our issues ourselves?

The Israel Lobby Cowbird

How Israel lobbying organizations flit about Washington, hatching operatives into the U.S. federal government to pursue a solitary goal—advancing the interests of a foreign state.

How is the Israel lobby like a swarm of cowbirds?

Cowbirds use the devious strategy of brood parasitism, arriving at the nest of more parentally-oriented birds to lay their own eggs. Cowbirds then enjoy unburdened freedom to forage and thrive while their own young are raised, fed and protected by unsuspecting parents. If an avian host dares remove the cowbird’s offspring, the host’s own eggs—if not the entire nest—will likely be destroyed by the watchful cowbird.

Monsanto’s New ‘Herbicide-Resistant’ GMO Crop Slammed by Food Experts

Even then it was linked to higher cancer rates in farmers who used it, as well as birth defects in their male offspring.

Iran nuclear deal within grasp

The US-Iranian negotiations for a nuclear deal are slated to resume on Monday amidst growing optimism that this could be the end of the year-long endgame under way, and an accord is in sight, finally. The US secretary of state John Kerry recently said that the effort will be to reach an accord even before the extended deadline of end-June.

The target is to reach a political agreement by March 1, 2015and a comprehensive agreement by July 1. To be sure, if there was any disappointment that the deal couldn’t be struck yet after intense talks began an year ago, that has dispelled. The mood in Tehran bazaar is “bullish”, according to New York Times, sensing that a deal with the US is in the works.

The main reason for this growing optimism is that the two sides have a good idea by now of each other’s ‘red lines’ and also the grey area where give-and-take is possible. In sum, there is no more a need for brinkmanship or grandstanding.

It’s by agriculture and control of the food supply that American diplomacy has been able to control most of the Third World. The World Bank’s geopolitical lending strategy has been to turn countries into food deficit areas by convincing them to grow cash crops – plantation export crops – not to feed themselves with their own food crops.” Professor Michael Hudson [3].

The US Is Ready To Blame North Korea For The Sony Hack

The US government now reportedly believes that North Korea is directly to blame for the devastating and unprecedented attack on Sony, The New York Times reports.

The massive Sony data hack is likely retaliation for the controversial comedy "The Interview," which depicts the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

US investigators have now parsed through enough evidence to claim that North Korea is "centrally involved."

Peshawar Attack – The Empire Strikes Again

Typically, imperial powers depend on the inability of oppressed local populations to muster a unified resistance, and the most successful occupiers are skilled at exploiting the differences among the occupied. Certainly that was the story of the British Empire’s success, and its legacy of nurtured local hatreds can be seen wherever the Union Flag flew, from Muslim-Hindu hatred in Pakistan and India, to Catholic-Protestant hatred in Ireland, to, yes, Jew-Arab, hatred in modern Israel. Ancient Rome was as good at encouraging internecine resentments among the occupied as Britain ever was. - Constantine’s Sword: The Church and the Jews – A History by James Carroll

A (mild) thaw in US-Russia ties

Reports on the meeting between the US secretary of state John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the American Embassy Residence in Rome suggest that an urgent need has arisen for the Obama administration to seek the Kremlin’s cooperation in the Middle East crisis.

The Indian pundits must be surprised how such bonhomie could exist between Washington and Moscow at the UN SC on the very same day (Friday) in New York when the US state department mildly censored Delhi for doing ‘business’ with Russia during President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India.

Plainly put, that’s how the international system works, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi not only understood it perfectly well but has also been prescient about the imperatives of a Russian-American working relationship sooner rather than later, and of course the transitory nature of the current chill in Russia’s relations with the West.

He consigned growing millions to poverty, unemployment, underemployment, hunger, homelessness and despair. He’s got more human wrecking in mind.

He wants US resources used for militarism, warmaking, and homeland repression. He wants ordinary people left high and dry.

U.S. Links North Korea to Sony Hacking

American intelligence officials have concluded that the North Korean government was “centrally involved” in the recent attacks on Sony Pictures’s computers, a determination reached just as Sony on Wednesday canceled its release of the comedy, which is based on a plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader.

Senior administration officials, who would not speak on the record about the intelligence findings, said the White House was still debating whether to publicly accuse North Korea of what amounts to a cyberterrorism campaign. Sony’s decision to cancel release of “The Interview” amounted to a capitulation to the threats sent out by hackers this week that they would launch attacks, perhaps on theaters themselves, if the movie was released.

U.S. TV Provides Ample Platform for American Torturers, But None to Their Victims By Glenn Greenwald

snip: Whenever America is forced to confront its heinous acts, the central strategy is to disappear the victims, render them invisible. That’s what robs them of their humanity: it’s the process of dehumanization. That, in turns, is what enables American elites first to support atrocities, and then, when forced to reckon with them, tell themselves that - despite some isolated and well-intentioned bad acts – they are still really good, elevated, noble, admirable people. It’s hardly surprising, then, that a Washington Post/ABC News poll released this morning found that a large majority of Americans believe torture is justified even when you call it “torture.” Not having to think about actual human victims makes it easy to justify any sort of crime.

Congress extends dozens of tax breaks

The US Senate approved a sweeping package of tax breaks, sending to President Barack Obama a bill that allows individuals and corporations to save billions of dollars on their 2014 taxes.

On the Senate’s final day of the year, lawmakers passed some 55 so-called tax extenders, deductions that expired at the end of 2013 but will be retroactively restored with the current legislation.

The Senate easily passed the measure, 76 votes to 16, after the House passed it earlier this month.

“Today’s strong bipartisan vote shows that Democrats and Republicans can come together to encourage our economy to create jobs and strengthen the middle class,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, someone get me a bucket; with that last statement by Harry Reid, I think I am about to HURL!!

Turkey, a NATO member since 1952, has played a pivotal role in the destabilization and destruction of neighboring Syria.

"If it was torture, I would be in jail," James Mitchell said on "The Kelly File." "This thing was investigated over and over.

Landmark Petition Submitted to Parliament Could Launch Canadian 9/11 Investigation

An historic milestone in the 9/11 Truth Movement has been achieved by a dedicated group of activists in Ottawa, Ontario, with the presentation of a petition in the House of Commons requesting a "parliamentary review of the omissions and inconsistencies in the official United States of America 9/11 Commission Report."

This is not the first time that Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has published news on the three-year effort to present this petition to the Canadian government. Back in February 2012, we reported that the petition for a parliamentary review of the destruction of the three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, had been given to members of Parliament in the hope that they would formally present the petition in the House of Commons. However, officials were not yet ready to tackle the numerous unanswered questions about 9/11. Again, in March 2013, we reported that a renewed effort to have the petition read in the House of Commons was impeded by Ottawa MP and foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar, because he "did not agree with it." Still not ready.

A major development finally unfolded on December 3, 2014 when a Member of Parliament rose in the House of Commons "to present a petition, from petitioners in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and particularly in the Ottawa area, calling on the government of Canada to conduct a parliamentary review into the events that occurred in the United States on September 11."

Sony Hackers Threaten 911 Attack On Movie Theaters

A threatening message from the Guardians of Peace, the group responsible for hacking into and releasing more than a terabyte of Sony’s internal data so far, is alleging an attack on movie theaters that plan to screen Seth Rogen and James Franco’s movie “The Interview.”

“The world will be full of fear,” the message, first reported by BuzzFeed, reads. “Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.).”

Which theater will show what movie isn’t usually available until just days before a release. However, the Interview, a movie about an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is scheduled for a wide release this Christmas. This threat could affect thousands of theaters across the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And where is the mighty NSA in all this? We have this huge spy system that cost billions of dollars, has violated the Fourth Amendment, which said spying along with torture has destroyed the reputation of the United States around the world, and for the last year that SONY knew they had an intrusion have been unable to find these hackers!

Here we are being told there is an actual threat of terror; the very reason we were told we had to accept the NSA peeking at our wives and daughters through our webcams, and the NSA has come up short.

Or maybe the NSA are the hackers, so they can say, "See? You NEED us!" after some patsy gets framed for the hack down the road!

“A Taboo on Telling the Truth About Palestine”

We are complicit in the creation of the modern Middle East. By honoring the taboo described by Edward Said, we made and now sustain Israel, not as a democracy which it claims to be, but as a war machine designed to extend the American empire over the bodies of dead children in Gaza and the WestBank.

There is no taboo against speaking of ISIS. The taboo related to ISIS is its connection to another American creation, the modern state of Israel.

Hedges opens a door into the darkness of our refusal to acknowledge our major role in Israel’s creation myth. He sees ISIS as an emulation of the modern state of Israel.

Is the U.S. Government incapable of breaking free from the domination of its Zionist masters?

The US Congress passed the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2014 at the beginning of December.

As is made clear in the article by Clovis Maksoud, former Arab League ambassador to the United States, transmitted here, at a time when European states are, hesitantly, moving toward holding Israel accountable for its crimes and taking meaningful action to end the occupation, the United States is, defiantly, moving in the opposite direction, confirming its national subservience to Israel and its continuing support (in its acts if not its rhetoric) for perpetual occupation.

17-Year-Old Trading Genius Who “Made ” $72 Million Actually Just “Made It All Up”

Tyler Durden: Yesterday, when we skeptically mocked the NY Mag’s Jessica Pressler coverage of Mohammed Islam, the 17-year-old wunderkind who “allegedly” made $72 million in the market by trading penny stocks, we covered the salient lies and told readers to “feel free to click on the NY Mag’s story about the young “multi-millionaire” – after all that was the whole point.”

Sure enough, in the finest tradition of the New Republic’s Stephen Glass, the entire article was nothing more than one epic big clickbait fest.

NEW STUDY: HEPATITIS B VACCINATION IN FRANCE SPARKED A WAVE OF NEW CASES OF MS

There has been considerable suspicion about a link between hepatitis B vaccination and the development of multiple sclerosis. This new study examined detailed national data in France around the mass vaccination of French adults in the mid 1990s. Following World Health Organisation recommendations in 1992 to mass vaccinate against hepatitis B to hopefully eradicate the virus, 20 million French people were vaccinated between 1994 and 1997.

'Children were forced to watch as their teacher was burned alive': Survivors reveal horror inside Pakistan school as nine Taliban gunmen bomb and shoot to death 132 children

Meanwhile, terrifying accounts of the children's ordeal began to emerge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is obviously another false-flag stunt. The US Government is trying to evade the consequences of their use of torture on prisoners by selling the idea that everyone who was tortured deserved it because of 9-11 (even if they had nothing to do with it) because they are all just evil wicked Arab Muslims who commit atrocities. The false-flag down in Sydney did not produce enough dead bodies to register on most peoples' media radar, so today they up the ante.

But stop and think for a moment. Any group that wants to change the status quo needs the support of the general public. Such a group is not going to carry out any action that would wreck that popular support. If George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had kicked in the doors of a colonial school and killed a bunch of children, how successful do you think they would have been at their objective, which was to get the British to leave? The answer is, "not very."

The same applies here. Attacking a school is intended to produce the maximum shock and revulsion in the public mind, something not useful to an agenda of sociopolitical change, but very useful for those who want to prevent that change.

And, as noted below, Blackwater/Xi (or whatever they are calling themselves this week) has a prior history of carrying out false-flag attacks in Pakistan which are then blamed on the Taliban. This appears to be more of the same.

Look at the third picture down. How convenient that they already had coffins in place to use!

How ‘Awesome’ Is America?

snip: Tantaros’s rant did have the feel of a Saturday Night Live satire, but her upbeat jingoism was only a slight exaggeration of what Americans have been hearing from much of their media and politicians for decades. At least since the presidency of Ronald Reagan, any substantive criticism of the United States has been treated as unpatriotic. Indeed, a journalist or a politician who dares point out any fundamental flaws in the country or even its actual history can expect to have his or her patriotism challenged. That is how debate over “how we’re not awesome” is silenced.

Suspect had multiple aliases, granted political asylum by Australian government, interviewed by Australian media, spent years as fake pro-Western "Shia'a cleric" condemning Iran and Syria before recently "converting" to Sunni and supporting ISIS.

Another embarrassing chapter has unfolded for Western intelligence and security communities in the wake of the so-called "Sydney Siege." The suspect named by the media as "Man Haron Monis" also has gone by the names "Manteghi Boroujerdi" and "Mohammad Hassan Manteghi" and was an individual now confirmed to have long been on the radar of the Australian government, media, law enforcement, and court system since his arrival on Australian shores almost two decades ago...

Israel Framed CIA in Backing Jundallah Terrorists

The 2007 revelation by ABC News that the Bush Administration was covertly backing the Jundallah terrorist organization in an effort to convince them to launch attacks on Iran was no small embarrassment for the administration, and a considerable source of tension with the Shi’ite world as the militants attacked mosques and killed large numbers of civilians.

The only problem is, it apparently didn’t happen. At least not the way ABC News claims. Instead of being direct US backing, by way of the CIA, for a State Department listed terrorist organization (a big no-no), Foreign Policy is reporting today that the whole thing was actually a Mossad plot designed to frame the CIA and the administration.

Seattle Apodment Moratorium Imperils Innocent Retiring Mother.

To wit, the situation with Kathleen Randall, in which the purchase of her U-District home at 4315 7th Avenue NE is imperiled because the developer cannot obtain a build permit. Permits are needed, inter alia, to fix a crumbled sewer line that rendered the home uninhabitable. The thing of it is, the application was submitted prior to imposition of the moratorium but as I told City Council yesterday I believe that much of pushback they are getting in permitting is because of the moratorium.

`Christopher Bollyn: Why Solving 9-11 is Our Most Urgent Task

One sure way to get a grasp of our political predicament is to logically analyze what the political leadership has done – and what it has failed to do – about the terror atrocity of 9-11.

Since September 11, 2001, four successive administrations and fourteen Sessions of Congress have utterly failed to conduct a proper criminal investigation of 9-11, a criminal atrocity that profoundly affected the course of the nation. Rather than investigate the mass murder of 3,000 people on 9-11, successive U.S. administrations have engaged in a criminal deception, using lies to take us into foreign wars while imposing police state measures at home.

The government’s egregious failure to conduct a proper criminal investigation into the events of 9-11 is exactly like the failure by the newly-installed president, Lyndon B. Johnson, to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. In both cases, rather than conducting proper criminal investigations, the government appointed commissions that produced seriously flawed reports that were simply meant to support the official, but false, version of events.

Propaganda Works: According to the American people, torture is justified, and effective

Following the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA interrogation practices in the period following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, 51% of the public says they think the CIA methods were justified, compared with just 29% who say they were not justified; 20% do not express an opinion. The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Dec. 11-14 among 1,001 adults, finds that amid competing claims over the effectiveness of CIA interrogation methods, 56% believe they provided intelligence that helped prevent terrorist attacks, while just half as many (28%) say they did not provide this type of intelligence.

Dick Cheney on Torture: the Report Is “Full of Crap” and “I’d Do It Again in a Minute”

Dick Cheney, the man who says his job it was to get the torture program put in place during the Bush, Jr. years, has gone on record to say he thinks the newly released Senate torture report (which he hasn’t even read) is “full of crap.”

In some ways, Mr. Cheney (or, maybe I'll call him DICK), might be literally right considering that the report details one of the "enhanced interrogation techniques" was something called "rectal rehydration," which, like every other disgusting and dehumanizing method used in that report, was ultimately deemed ineffective and totally unjustifiable.

What's rectal rehydration? Well, in case you haven't heard, the Washington Post summed it up pretty well:

Senate torture report reveals American sadism

A particularly cringe-worthy revelation is that the CIA practiced “rectal feeding” where prisoners on hunger strikes were force-fed through their rectum in order to keep them alive. The RT commentary cited above writes that, “At least five CIA detainees were subjected to ‘rectal rehydration,’ or rectal feeding, the Senate report reads, in order to keep prisoners alive who allegedly otherwise refused to eat.”

Amazon’s Seattle HQ partly evacuated due to possible bomb threat

Some Amazon employees this morning are working from home after a possible bomb threat shut down at least one of the company’s main Seattle buildings.

According to one source, who had knowledge of information from three employees, at least one office has been affected in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, where the retailer’s sprawling campus is located. A second source also said the same building was evacuated.

The building we are hearing has been closed by the scare is Day 1 South, which is located on a major courtyard at the company’s headquarters. Day One North is unaffected.

Miko Peled: This is NOT Recognition

As the recognition by European countries of a so called “State of Palestine” continues, it is becoming obvious that this is nothing but an old colonial trick dusted and reused. The fact that liberal Zionist hypocrites the likes of the Israeli writers Amoz Oz and David Grossman are all over it says it all.

In Palestine, speaking out against injustice is no longer enough. In fact it was never enough. As people of conscience we must act for the removal of the injustice and its replacement with a free, democratic system. But many forget that in order to achieve this there must be a struggle. A real struggle, and not some intellectualized version of a struggle as is often suggested by some Israeli liberals, is the only way to defeat racist, colonialist regimes.

The new European ‘arc of instability’

What’s certain is that the Empire of Chaos won’t relent in its strategy of heating up the new arc of instability – inside Europe, across the economic/financial spectrum – and instrumentalizing its pre-fabricated New Iron Curtain from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

The European Council on Foreign Relations and Berlin think-tank Friedrich Ebert Stiftung have just reached more or less the same conclusion.

If the dangerous stand-off between the EU and Russia over Ukraine is not solved, the EU could face, up to 2030, a military build-up in eastern Europe; a new arms race with NATO as a protagonist; and a semi-permanent “zone of instability” from the Baltic to the Balkans and the Black Sea.

Meet Rep. Mike Honda, The Piece Of Work Who Wants To Put You In Prison For Ten Years For Having Body Armor

In between calling for an end to 'the discriminatory ban on bisexual blood donors' and condemning the Israeli boycott, Mike Honda wants to put you in prison for ten years for having body armor. He demands school libraries remove all online filters of Bi-sexual & Transgender websites, so that schoolchildren can access them.
He introduced a 'Homemade Firearms Accountability Act' to 'respond to the growing black market for homemade firearms' and is freaked out about 'the emergence of additive manufacturing (3D printing) to produce firearms.' His 'Climate Change Education Act' seeks to" broaden the understanding of human-induced climate change." Honda, imprisoned in a Japanese internment camp during WWII, supports all kind of hate crime laws and he even wrote an open letter to Rand Paul praising Obama's executive orders.

According to declassified reports, video evidence and testimony from whistleblower guards and soldiers, the US government used music to torture detainees in a number of different ways.? In some cases, songs would be played in repetition for hours or days on end, as to drive the prisoner to insanity. Music was also used to prevent detainees from sleeping, which is another way of creating delirium and vulnerability in the detainees. Some songs were chosen because they were annoying, while others were chosen because they may have been offensive to the prisoner’s culture or religion.

Boston Bombing: Feds Admit No Evidence Tsarnaev Brothers Involved in the Slayings

For nearly any crime requiring a “Whodunnit” answer in Boston around the time of the April 15, 2013, Marathon bombing, the authorities answered: The Tsarnaev brothers.

One egregious crime pinned on them was a grisly Sept. 11, 2011, triple murder in Waltham, Mass.

Now, prosecutors in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have delivered a shocking reversal. They admit to having no evidence that his dead brother, Tamerlan, was involved in the slayings.

That wasn’t the case right after the bombing: law enforcement fingered Tamerlan as the perpetrator, and suggested Dzokhar may have been involved. Much of the media has presented it as fact ever since.

This is a pattern we’ve seen since the bombing: The government feeds prejudicial information (usually anonymously) to the press, implying Tamerlan and Dzhokhar’s guilt, despite having flimsy or no evidence. In the most extreme example, prosecutors had to completely recant their accusation thatthe brothers robbed a 7-Eleven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI was trying to coerce Ibragim Todashev into saying that the Tsarnaev brothers were the killers in the triple murder, but apparently Ibragim resisted to the point where he was shot several times by one of the FBI agents, including a kill shot to the top of his head. The FBI agent has never been charged with the murder, carried out while trying to frame someone else for a murder.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO): Profit, Power and Geopolitics

The fact is that GMO technology would still be owned and controlled by certain very powerful interests. In their hands, this technology is first and foremost an instrument of corporate power, a tool to ensure profit. Beyond that, it is intended to serve US global geopolitical interests. Indeed, agriculture has for a long time been central to US foreign policy.

“American foreign policy has almost always been based on agricultural exports, not on industrial exports as people might think. It’s by agriculture and control of the food supply that American diplomacy has been able to control most of the Third World. The World Bank’s geopolitical lending strategy has been to turn countries into food deficit areas by convincing them to grow cash crops – plantation export crops – not to feed themselves with their own food crops.” Professor Michael Hudson [3].

The Project for a New American Century and the Wolfowitz Doctrine show that US foreign policy is about power, control and ensuring global supremacy at any cost [4,5]. Part of the plan for attaining world domination rests on the US controlling agriculture and hijacking food sovereignty and nations’ food security.

Am I offending the families of the persons who may get hurt in Sydney today? Maybe so, but I am un-offending the rest of us. We need to get sensible, Folks. We should have been quicker and firmer in noting that the terrorism that befell Ottawa a few weeks ago looked very scripted.

We need a measuring stick for these things, one that any citizen can apply. Example: after dropping bombs at the Boston Marathon, the brother Tsarnaev did a ‘carjacking.’ That’s diagnostic. If those boys needed a ride, they had only to drop into the subway at Copley Square and be transported to their choice of remote towns.

His religious doctrine regarding Israel makes him an apostate. Duping well intentions, but ill-informed viewers into accepting the crimes of Israel, as the will of God, is why he is a Trojan horse.

He is just one of the countless buffoons or propagandists who earned their place in the media circus by proving their loyalty to a gang of criminals. Israel is no ally of the United States. Zionism is not a victim. "Likudnick" Benjamin Bebe Netanyahu is no friend of America. Most importantly, not all Jews are Zionists or even support the state of Israel.

‘Was my son lynched?’ FBI to investigate hanging death of black North Carolina teen

The state medical examiner, who performed an autopsy, ruled Lacy’s death a suicide. Some residents criticized authorities for not probing further, even if to support the suicide finding. But on Friday, amid calls for federal authorities to step in, Bladen County prosecutor Jon David said in a televised news conference that the case remains open and that he welcomed help from the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government is desperate to turn the American people against each other; to divide us to keep us conquered. That the FBI is involved is very telling in that it was the FBI's COINTELPRO program of the 1960s that used dirty tricks such as the Black Panther Coloring Book to anger the blacks and whites against each other so we could not unite in opposition to the war in Vietnam.

And it looks like they are up to their old tricks again!

Two men charged in Sydney over alleged terrorism offences

A senior police source confirmed to Fairfax Media that one of the men was arrested for allegedly financing terrorism.

The man is understood to have been arrested during Operation Appleby, the largest counter-terrorism probe in Australia, that was carried out in September, but he was released at the time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a guess how you can be arrested for financing terror, then be released.

THE LAVON AFFAIR - IS HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?

In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Something to keep in mind while the media wags "Arab terrorists" at us in Australia and Belgium!

The Sydney Lindt Ball Attack

To understand today’s ISIS attack on the Sydney Lindt Chocolate Café on Martins Place, right in the heart of the city, you got to know Sydney. The Lindt Chocolate Café is the main competitor of the Mossad owned Max Brenner Café chain. The Lindt Café targeted in today’s attack is just across the road from Sydney’s biggest Max Brenner Café.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two other clues you need to recall. Lindt is a Swiss company, and Switzerland just offered to host a meeting of signatory states to the Geneva Conventions on PA territories. Odd that "Arab terrorists" would target one of the good guys!

Second, the Australian police have shut down the Sydney Opera House, which is world famous and will get noticed. But the Sydney Opera House is a mile from the actual seen of the hostage drama. There really is no threat to the opera house; it is just media bait to drive the story!

Letters to the New World Order: Dear Torture-Loving War Criminal Dick Cheney

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Truthstream’s original series “Letters to the New World Order.” Letter #5 goes out to former Vice President DICK Cheney.

One time Aaron had a dream that saying the word “torture” five times resurrected Dick Cheney as every movie villain in the history of cinema combined like Voltron possessed by John McCain’s mother to single-handedly continue fighting the fictitious war on terror using war crimes to save the Middle East from the specter of peace.

Did I say dream? It was more like a nightmare of a nightmare that had a nightmare about a nightmare. On nightmare juice.

Five down, only 8,738 left to go.

Sydney Hostage Situation: 3 People Flee Lindt Chocolate Shop

Three people were seen fleeing from a Sydney cafe after they had been taken hostage -- with others still held inside as neighboring blocks remain locked down as police tried to make contact with the armed perpetrator, authorities said.

The hostages were being held in the Lindt Chocolat Café, a chocolate shop and cafe in Sydney's Martin Place, the city's financial district where the Reserve Bank of Australia and several commercial banks have their main offices. The area is also close to the New South Wales state parliament.

New South Wales Deputy Police Commissioner Catherine Burn confirmed that three people had gotten away.

Probable Islamic terror hoax in Australia

ISIS™ nabs a chocolate shop in Sydney, right across from Channel 7!

As of 10 PM Central time on the 14th (which is the 15th in Australia) an "Islamic terrorist" has taken over a Lindt chocolate shop in Sydney Australia and held 50 people hostage. But there are serious problems with this story.

The first problem? A sign the hostages reportedly were forced to hold up against the windows which read "We sacrifice ourselves for you, O Mohamed" was shown via a blurry photograph and had incomplete text. This would be expected of a hack doing this, no Muslim would get the text wrong.

Breaking false flag/drill-gone-live: Sydney airspace shut down, Channel 7 studios evacuated during Martin Place siege --'Islamic flag' hung in Martin Place hostage crisis

Sydney Opera House evacuated: Reuters --Martin Place businesses, including the nearby Channel 7 studios, have been evacuated --Sydney airspace has also been reportedly shut down as a result of the Martin Place siege.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an out-of-proportion reaction to a simple hostage crisis. Shut down the airspace? That is being done to fan this story into a global news event, which is working because it is the lead story on the US Corporate media right now! The flags in the window signal this is being staged for political gain.

This propaganda is intended to distract from the US torturing of innocent Muslims, and return Muslims to their designated roles as permanent villains!

Cardboard cutouts of black LYNCHING victims linked to Eric Garner protests found hanging on campus at Berkeley

Cardboard cutouts of lynching victims were found hanging from ropes around the campus of the University of California in Berkeley, apparently linked to protests over the death of Eric Garner.

Three of the effigies were pictured around campus - one hanging from a gate, another from a tree and one on the floor held up by an activist.

The lifesize cardboard figures - which seemed to resemble historical lynching victims from 1911 - was printed with a slogan linked to protests over Eric Garner's death by apparent chokehold at the hands of the NYPD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Someone" is really trying to find a way to get race riots going. Now who could that be? Well, the US needs to find some way to distract America from the torture scandal and the new laws that lay our wealth open for plundering by Wall Street, and right now the US Government is desperate for any excuse to declare a national emergency to confiscate the guns and shut down the independent media! Back in the 1960s, these kind of stunts were a major part of the FBI's COINTELPRO program!

'I ran that n***** over': Two women who encouraged their friend to run over and kill black man after brutally beating and robbing him in unprovoked race-hate attack face prison

Two women are facing prison after they admitted this week to encouraging their friend to run over and kill a black man with his pick up during a deliberate mission to target and attack African Americans.

James Anderson, was run over by a Ford F250 truck outside a hotel in Jackson, Mississisppi, after being brutally beaten and robbed in 2011.

His assault was caught by a hotel surveillance camera – which has already resulted in the conviction of driver Deryl Dedmon who boasted afterwards to his friends - ‘I ran that n***** over.'

"What is it going to take to get you people to stop thinking about the CIA torture crap AND START KILLING EACH OTHER OFF, like we need you to do!" -- Official White Horse Souse

Note that this crime actually happened back in 2011, which means reviving the story today serves the purpose of trying to fan up a racial crisis and riots here in the US so the government can declare a national emergency!

Forget The Torture Report, When Will The False Flag Terror Report Come Out?

The release of the Torture Report was a political act, and the report itself is a whitewash.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and others have given a pathetic and predictable defense of torture. By leaning on the false flag 9/11 events to morally, intellectually, and politically justify torture they have yet again revealed the emptiness of their arguments. They are using one crime to justify another one.

Citigroup managing director found dead in the bathtub

Another banker? Citigroup managing director, dies in suspected suicide

Citigroup managing director Shawn D. Miller was found dead in the bathtub of his New York City apartment...Police believe Miller killed himself, Detective Martin Speechley, an NYPD spokesman, told Bloomberg News Wednesday. However, the official cause of death will remain a mystery until the autopsy report is concluded.

Investigators believe Miller killed himself after going on a drug, methamphetamine and alcohol bender, according to the Daily News, which said that cops found controlled substances in the apartment.

The banker was discovered by the building’s doorman on Tuesday afternoon, after his boyfriend was unable to get a hold of him. His body was found with a laceration to his neck, the NYPD said. He was pronounced dead by paramedics that arrived to the apartment.

10 George Orwell Quotes That Predicted Life In 2014 America

1) “In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.” Though many in the modern age have the will to bury their head in the sand when it comes to political matters, nobody can only concern themselves with the proverbial pebble in their shoe. If one is successful in avoiding politics, at some point the effects of the political decisions they abstained from participating in will reach their front door. More often than not, by that time the person has already lost whatever whisper of a voice the government has allowed them.

CHP: "Military Personnel Easily Fit Into The CHP's Workforce And Adapt Well To Our Paramilitary Work Environment"

The California Highway Patrol website has a special military recruiting page which states "Former military personnel easily fit into the CHP's workforce and adapt well to our paramilitary work environment" and that applicants can "use 'military skills' to 'promote through the CHP's ranks.'

The CHP then continues to admit they will promote military applicants further down the long hiring process, regardless of test scores!"All individuals awarded Veterans’ Preference will be certified in Rank 1 of the eligibility list, regardless of score." Another page on their site admits "The California Highway Patrol is often described as a "paramilitary" department, and that is true."
In the wake of CHP recently caught on video beating elderly grandmothers and pointing guns at protesters, perhaps this mentality of a 'CHP PARAMILITARY FORCE' ought to be examined.

Argentina

Argentina, a brief summary:

until 1950, Argentina was 5th power on this planet. Everything worked perfect, there was infrastructure, and raw materials to feed the planet. With 1.5 metres top-soil average in the Pampa region, this is the most fertile and commercially viable place on the planet.
It was a paradise, and lots of fortunes were made there.

Enter WW2. In 1948, Argentina hadn't declared war on Germany yet. Why ? well, cuz they knew who was behind it. That is right, the Rothschild banksters, who had bankrolled Hitler.
So, the "World Bank" (now IMF) set up a blockade of Argentina. No more beef exports, no more Sorgum/Wheat/Corn/Milk exports.
After 2 years, the "World Bank" gave Argentina an ultimatum: either you install our puppet as a "democratic" ruler (Peron), and get rid of the Military gob-our-mint (until then not called a Junta).

Torture Report Reveals CIA’s Manipulation of US Media

Agency Used Classified Information As Currency For Deception The recently released Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report pillorying the CIA’s Bush-era detention and interrogation program is replete with lurid details of what would commonly be called torture, if those practices were carried out on you or me. Waterboarding, rectal feeding, sleep deprivation, coffin-size cells and forcing detainees to stand in stress positions, even with broken bones, is the stuff of a horror movie. But there is another revelation in the long-awaited, and controversial, Senate committee report that so far seems to have slipped past much examination in the public spotlight.

Visa, MasterCard sued for blocking donations to WikiLeaks

Lawyers representing the credit card processor used by WikiLeaks are suing Visa and MasterCard in the United States over the 2010 banking blockade that kept the anti-secrecy group from receiving funds.

On Monday this week, American attorneys for Icelandic hosting provider DataCell ehf filed suit in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in hopes of having a federal judge award the company upwards of $5 million for what it claims was a coordinated attempt between Visa and MasterCard to restrict funding to WikiLeaks after the secret-spilling organization started publishing classified US State Department cables over four years ago.

Now put Blair and Straw on trial for torture, says Craig Murray, diplomat fired for reporting toture.

By Craig Murray, Former British Ambassador To Uzbekistan

In the summer of 2004, I warned Tony Blair’s Foreign Office that Britain was using intelligence material which had been obtained by the CIA under torture. Two months later I was sacked as the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan on the orders of Downing Street, bringing to an end my 20-year diplomatic career.

When I then went public with the news that Uzbek territory was part of a global CIA torture programme, I was dismissed as a fantasist by Mr Blair’s henchmen. Now finally, a decade later, I have been vindicated by last week’s shocking Senate Intelligence Committee report.

Over 500 pages it details the CIA’s brutal abuse of Al Qaeda suspects, who were flown around the world to be tortured in a network of secret prisons. One of these was in Uzbekistan, where the US had an air base.

Israel’s Jews NOT Palestinians who are trapped in their public narrative

The only threat to Israel’s very existence is its on-going colonization of the occupied West Bank (ethnic cleansing slowly and by stealth) and the sickening Zionist self-righteousness that justifies it.

It’s Israel’s Jews not the Palestinians who have got to make the first major move if there is ever to be peace based on justice for the Palestinians and security for all. And what does that first major move have to be?
