The latest poll says Donald Trump may finally have gone too far

It’s too early to say for sure that the Trump bandwagon has run out of steam, or even that it’s slowing down. There are many polls, which often conflict. More to the point, Trump has fallen out of first place in other polls a couple of times before, and each time he’s bounced back. In this latest poll, despite the drop, he remains well in the lead, with 31%—16 points ahead of his nearest rival, Ben Carson.

(*The GOP is 'Investing' in taking Trump out . The Reuters/Ipsos poll must have received a healthy pay out to produce these numbers )

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

Hürriyet columnist faces up to five years in prison for ‘insulting’ President Erdo?an

Daily Hürriyet columnist and former editor-in-chief Ertu?rul Özkök faces up to five years and four months in prison for “insulting” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an in an opinion piece published on Sept. 3.

In an op-ed entitled “Listen, grand man” written after the tragic death of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian Kurdish refugee whose body washed ashore a Turkish beach, Özkök slammed Middle Eastern actors for turning the region into “the most brutal land in the world.”

Although Özkök did not mention anyone specifically, the article referred to a “dictator” who thought the country was the “property of his father.”

Experts: Turkey might be tried for financing ISIL, arms trafficking

Arrest of Turkish journalists over Syria trucks news sparks outrage

Looks like the Turkish people have had it with Erdogan. Coup or Civil war ahead...... or worse.

Domestic and international press institutions and political figures have condemned the Nov. 26 arrest of daily Cumhuriyet editor-in-chief Can Dündar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gül for their news report on Syria-bound intelligence trucks.

Turkey’s left-wing opposition has strongly condemned the arrest of two prominent journalists on charges of assisting terrorists, with the leaders of both the Republican People’s Party (CHP) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) arguing the “unlawful” decision was personally imposed by President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an.

Flashback: Zionists call the shots in the Anglican Church

The archbishop’s website joyfully reported how he hobnobbed with the Chief Rabbinate, paid his respects to Yad Vashem and the holocaust, and talked with the president of Israel – the latter no doubt sniggering up his sleeve at his guest’s frustration at being prevented by Israel’s thugs from seeing what horrors they had inflicted on the Gazans.

Why did he agree to fraternize with Jewish political and religious leaders when his wish to carry out his Christian duty in Gaza was so rudely obstructed? Did Lambeth Palace not realize that meekly accepting such insults only served to legitimize the Israelis’ illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories and gave a stamp of approval to the vicious siege of Gaza, the ongoing air strikes against civilians, the persecution of Muslim and Christian communities, and the regime’s utter contempt for international law and human rights?

There was no mention of a get-together with senior Islamic figures, leaving a question-mark over Williams’s real commitment to interfaith engagement.

Obama’s War on Truth

The four USAF military drone operators who recently blew the whistle and exposed the callousness and complete lack of concern for civilian casualties of the US drone assassination programme, (and received very little mainstream media exposure), yesterday found their bank accounts and credit cards all blocked by the US government. The effects of that on daily life are devastating. My source is their lawyer, Jesselyn Radack, through the Sam Adams Associates (of which we are both members).

No criminal charges have been brought against any of the men, despite numerous written threats of prosecution. Their finances appear to have been frozen by executive action under anti-terrorist legislation. This is yet a further glaring example of the use of “anti-terror” powers against people who are not remotely terrorist.

Shunned by US, Turkey looks for alternative oil

Looks like Turkey found that new supply of oil! Something tells me that it just dried up!

Excluded from a US list of countries that will be exempted from the petrol embargo on Iran, Turkey is seeking to buy oil from Libya and Saudi Arabia. ‘We have to replace the supply,’ says Turkish Energy Minister Y?ld?z“.Turkey’s absence from the U.S.’s waiver list regarding the Iran issue doesn’t mean it will not be included,” Y?ld?z told reporters yesterday. “Those talks are carried out on the level of companies,” he added.

Stressing that Turkey’s security of supply was an important issue; the minister said they would not halt purchasing crude oil from Iran unless other suppliers were lined up.

FLASHBACK:German General: NATO Article 5 won’t apply to Turkey’s buffer zone in Syria

In an interview on “Anne Will” ARD-TV broadcast, and stating almost the same words that Davutoglu said on CNN, General Kujat said “look, that’s what Turkey wants to provoke [NATO Article 5]. Therefore it keeps saying ‘we can’t do that alone, others have to participate.’”

In face of then ISIS massacre of Kobane Kurds, he continued bluntly: “Turkey basically wants to drag NATO into this situation because the actual goal of Turkey is to neutralize Assad…ISIS’s actions and what’s happening to the Kurds are subsidiary…and it has to be clearly said that an ally who behaves like this doesn’t deserve the protection of this alliance, an ally who doesn’t intervene for protection in a such tragic situation doesn’t deserve protection himself.”

Breaking: Supreme Court Blocks Racially Discriminatory Hawaii Election

The Supreme Court has just issued an order (read it here) blocking the racially discriminatory separatist election in Hawaii. The order enjoins (stops) the counting of ballots and certification of results pending further order of the Supreme Court. I covered the election here and here at PJ Media.

Only one race is permitted to register to vote with Hawaiian government officials for the separatist election.Hawaii has given a private organization millions of dollars to run the election. They believe these actions are constitutional. Judicial Watch has sued Hawaii, and the Public Interest Legal Foundation has filed an emergency brief with the Supreme Court on behalf of the American Civil Rights Union asking the court to stop the election process. (I was on the brief.)

This morning Justice Kennedy, writing for the court, did so and issued an injunction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absurd. The election is for the indigenous Hawaiians to decide the degree of separation they wish from the US Government, an issue that does not affect the non-indigenous people of Hawaii at all. This is a blatant attempt to allow the non-indigenous people of Hawaii to block the sovereignty of the native Hawaiians!

Plot Thickens: Pentagon Now Facing More Scrutiny Over $766 Million Task Force

The Pentagon is scrambling to justify its actions in restricting the government watchdog investigating a $766-million task force in Afghanistan — with more controversy seemingly erupting by the day. Now there are allegations that Defense Department officials retaliated against a whistleblower and news of several ongoing criminal investigations.

Earlier this month, we reported that the Pentagon was making it difficult for the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction to investigate reports of gross waste and mismanagement by the now-defunct, five-year Task Force for Business Stability Operations. One of its projects, a gas station, cost 140 times what it should have.

Lobbyists, in Strategy Session, Conclude That Refugee Crisis “Helps Us” Defeat Regulations

In an audio recording of a strategy session obtained by The Intercept, major trade association lobbyists discussed how the refugee crisis has changed the political dynamics in Washington to their advantage.

In the conference call held last week, lobbyists representing a number of high-polluting industries agreed that the battle between Congress and President Obama on refugee policy will give them the cover they need to attach a legislative rider to the omnibus budget bill that rolls back newly expanded clean water regulation.

Turkey must be removed from NATO: US Army general

The former US Army commander further described Turkey as an internal threat to NATO, who “will only cooperate when they have to and they will get as much out of NATO as they can” in terms of weapons and tactics.

Vallely said Turkey is poised to take more provocative measures in near future.

Insanity Unbound: Infowars Characterizes "Dancing Israelis" Arrested in New Jersey on 9/11/01 as Arab MUSLIMS

I've had about enough of this propaganda of "Muslims cheering for 9/11." It has gotten to the level of insane propaganda. Infowars.com was giddy after Donald Trump tweeted one of their articles, which was not even original Infowars content, but rather a re-post from Bizpac Review titled 'I Live In Jersey And Trump Is Right: Muslims DID Celebrate On 9/11 In NJ - We Saw It!' The author uses a quote from a Sept. 18, 2001 Washington Post article to verify her claims. However, the interesting thing is that the Washington Post picked up on this and has posted their own extremely thorough and lengthy rebuttal of the author's claims. Since the Post's own story was used as alleged 'proof' of the Muslims cheering, they took quite a bit of time and detail to debunk the myth that "thousands of Muslims were cheering."

Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Why did Turkey shoot down a Russian Air Force jet?

Turkey is so militarily inferior to Russia that it is unlikely Turkey would commit an act of war against Russia without encouragement from Washington. We might think that Turkey would feel shielded by NATO, but it is doubtful that many European members of NATO would risk nuclear annihiliation by going to war with Russia in order to save Turkey from the consequences of such a reckless and irresponsible act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft and lying about it. Turkey has issued no apology and no believable explanation. Unless Erdogan has lost his mind, Washington is behind the shootdown, and the reason is Washington’s desperation to decode the new Russian technology that gives Russian forces total control over a battlefield, whether on land, sea, or air.

Volkswagen & Others Cheat Because Regulators Are Toothless and Worse

It’s not just Volkswagen and it’s not just motor manufacturers. The same sort of behaviour can be seen in many other industries -- and of course in the banks as well.

A common feature is the weakness of the regulators. The EPA should be ashamed that it was not they but a small NGO that discovered what Volkswagen were up to. Where was the EPA when this was going on? They seem to have seen their role as purely bureaucratic: the manufacturer would have its vehicles tested at a testing station of their own choosing and pass the numbers to the EPA who would tick an appropriate box. Had the EPA been doing the tests themselves, someone might have wondered about the results just as John German of the ICCT did [1].

From Zundel to Topham: Zionist theatre

The trials of Arthur Topham, Canadian journalist and publisher of Radical Press, for "hate crime" (2007) and "hate propaganda" (2012) under new Criminal Code “Hate Propaganda” legislation, have resulted in exactly the opposite of what the prosecution, B'Nai Brith, wanted. Instead of quietly muzzling the gadfly critic, the result has been the highlighting of past Jewish hate crimes, and the increasing control by Zionist groups of Canadian politics to promote Israel and censor anti-Zionist criticism.

Dead Witnesses to the JFK Assassination: Mind Blowing Video Testimony of a Detective with the Dallas Police Department

“A very good American was murdered over war profits and that fact will never go away for most Americans…
“Mickey Mouse also died with JFK in Viet Nam along with Mom, Pop and Apple Pie, but that’s not all, America’s moral high ground was stolen from its people – along with their honor, their sense of fair play and justice, virtue, the pursuit of happiness; their conscience and duty subjugated with Abu Ghraib torture and an illegal policy of rendition, their loyalty, fidelity and trust – love, hope and dreams were all stolen, replaced with poverty and fear, all trust gone now in the wake of a global war for wealth.

“But the public consciousness has discovered and is examining the depth of the theft of not just monetary wealth, but the theft of those virtues the theft of their honor; a grand theft without any precedent in history; theft of the ownership of self through debt.

French comedian Dieudonné given prison sentence for hate speech

The controversial French comedian, Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, has been sentenced to two months in jail by a Belgian court for incitement to hatred over racist and antisemitic comments he made during a show.

Dieudonné, who has faced similar cases in France, was also fined €9,000 (£6,300) by the court in Liège. He was not in court for the verdict.

Eric Lemmens, a lawyer for Belgium’s Jewish organisations, told Agence France-Presse that the judgment “says that all the accusations against Dieudonné were established – both incitement to hatred and hate speech but also Holocaust denial”. The charges related to a show in Liège in 2012. “For me this is more than satisfying, this is a major victory,” he said.

Israel-funded group slams US labor federation for backing Palestinian rights

Solidarity activists are urging support for a US labor federation facing a backlash from a group closely tied to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over its support for Palestinian rights.

In October, the Connecticut branch of the AFL-CIO passed a resolution calling on the national labor federation to back key elements of the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel.

AFL-CIO is the largest US labor federation, counting dozens of unions with a combined membership of almost 13 million workers as its affiliates – 200,000 of them in Connecticut.

Now they’re in the sights of the Israeli-government funded, anti-Palestinian and Islamophobic organization StandWithUs.

Brussels terror expert has applauded Israel’s atrocities

These are busy days for the Brussels-based “terrorism expert” Claude Moniquet. Ever since it emerged that a few men from Belgium took part in the recent attacks on Paris, his “analysis” has been much in demand by the media.

Any time I have seen Moniquet on TV lately, he has always been given softball treatment by his interviewers. As a result, he is presented as an earnest figure, who has amassed considerable knowledge on extremism both through his past career with the French external intelligence agency and his subsequent research. Viewers are never told that this “terrorism expert” has applauded atrocities perpetrated by Israel.

In 2004, Moniquet described Israel’s assassination of Ahmed Yassin, a founding member of Hamas, as “good news.” Yassin was 66-years-old and paralyzed from the waist down.

Seven other Palestinians were killed in the Hellfire missile attack on Yassin. According to Amnesty International, Israel’s actions violated international law.

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Turkey Downs Russian Fighter to Draw NATO and US Deeper into Syrian Quagmire

The downing of the Russian Su-24 fighter fits perfectly with the way in which the Turkish government has been ratcheting up tensions on the border, using its jihadi allies to seize Syrian territory, and trying to incite a violent reaction that will force greater NATO or US involvement.
