Absolute Reason Why the U.S. could have been behind MH17 being shot down. U.S. was in conflict with Russia for Europe's Energy Needs

The U.S. and the U.K. are calling on all the European countries to get behind Russian sanctions. They want the EU to stop using Russian energy, especially Gazprom.

Hillary Clinton directly said the EU has to stop using Gazprom.

The U.S. has been in a conflict with Russia to get the EU to import the U.S. energy, but the EU has had a stronger relationship with Russia for energy.

Damage Control: Fox News mic catches Kerry criticising Israel

US Secretary of State John Kerry is confronted by Fox News with a conversation with an aide that was supposed to be private but was caught by an open studio microphone. He criticises Israel’s attack on Gaza, saying sarcastically: “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.” That is presumably a reference to the rapidly escalating death toll over the past 24 hours from Israel’s ground invasion.

MURDERED BBC presenter Jill Dando tried to expose a paedophile ring involving “big-name” BBC stars

According to the retired BBC worker, the Crimewatch host was told that DJs, stars and corporation staff were involved in organised abuse.

But when she tried to get bosses to investigate the alleged ring and other abuse complaints inside the BBC “no one wanted to know”, the former friend said.

Undeterred, Jill is said to have then raised the claims with senior management in the mid-1990s but no investigation took place.

The TV host was shot dead a few years later on the doorstep of her London home. The 37-year-old’s murder remains unsolved.

Exposing La Raza’s AZTLAN Lie. 5 Historical Facts Why the Southwest and Texas Was Not Stolen from Mexico.

The truth is the border never crossed the so-called indigent people of Mexico. It was done lawfully and legally. Mexico and the rest of central and south America are responsible for their own problems. The perception that American stolen Texas and the southwest from Mexico is a flat out lie of the Ford Foundation that is published in Mexican textbooks. It is a shame that the leadership in Mexico blames America for their economic woes to divert people away from the government’s destructive policies as the cause of misery. Exploiting the ignorance of the people is the way they stay in power rewriting history to suit their needs.

Harry Reid’s name surfaces in Utah bribery case against two former attorneys general

While the charges are major news in Utah, it was the mention of two senators — Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, and Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican — that could reach Washington’s corridors of power.

The documents detail efforts by a federally indicted Utah businessman, Jeremy Johnson, to secure meetings with Mr. Reid and Mr. Hatch, where Mr. Johnson hoped to enlist their help in fighting off an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Israel Invades Gaza Because it has America’s tacit consent

America must soon shift our role from giving tacit consent to an invasion to becoming an active partner in a new, honest search for peace in the Middle East.

What is the end game? To cast Gazans to the sea, where they will be met by the Israeli Navy? To push Gazans into Egypt? To eject all Palestinians to… where? This is a question relevant not only to Israelis and Palestinians, but to the entire world.

What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington’s propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have. One fact is that the separatists do not have the expensive Buk anti-aircraft missile system or the trained personnel to operate it. Another fact is that the separatists have no incentive to shoot down an airliner and neither does Russia. Anyone can tell the difference between low-flying attack aircraft and an airliner at 33,000 feet.

Will Russia shoot down West’s lies?

One gets the feeling that Russia has the aim and ability to shoot down these Western lies, and to show up Western politicians and media for what they are: a criminal enterprise of lies and war-making.

They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.

The trouble is that this time the Western propaganda machine is up against Russia and its own very capable intelligence.

Russia is not only calmly challenging the West to present its so-called “intelligence evidence.” Moscow is now also saying that it has its own incriminating information as to what really happened to the doomed Malaysian flight.

BRICS establish $100bn bank and currency reserves

Each BRICS member is expected to put an equal share into establishing the startup capital of $50 billion with a goal to reach $100 billion. The BRICS bank will be headquartered in Shanghai, India will preside as president the first year, and Russia will be the chairman of the representatives. Each country will send either their finance minister or Central Bank chair to the bank’s representative board.

The group of emerging economies signed the long-anticipated document to create the $100 bn BRICS Development Bank and a reserve currency pool worth over another $100 bn. Both will counter the influence of Western-based lending institutions and the dollar.

Reuters: Clashes Erupt in Paris as Thousands Rally To Denounce Israel Attack on Gaza

Angry Crowds Defy Ban on Pro-Palestinian Protests

Paris — Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as they defied a ban on a planned rally against violence in the Gaza strip.

A Reuters photographer said demonstrators in northern Paris launched projectiles at riot police, who responded by firing teargas canisters and stun grenades.

Demonstrators also climbed on top of a building and burned an Israeli flag. At least one car was set on fire.

A police spokesman said that 38 demonstrators had been arrested by early evening and that the clashes were dying down.

MH17: Weathering the Propaganda Firestorm

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The level of unsubstantiated propaganda being directed against Russia regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has reached unprecedented lows.

There is tangible desperation across Western media establishments, their political spheres, and within their corporate-financier funded policy think-tanks as they attempt to reassert their agenda and narrative not only upon the crisis in Ukraine, but upon the entire world as their weakening grip becomes apparent to all.

The dangerous desperation emanating from the West follows the latest in a series of growing failures - the previous and most comparable being the loss of its proxy war against Syria and the desperate criminal conspiracy they unleashed in a failed attempt to save it...

On the defensive, Barney Frank accuses Clemons and Kornacki of ganging up on him, and Israel

From Steve Kornacki’s MSNBC show, Up with Steve Kornacki. Guest Steve Clemons of the New America Foundation was critical of the Gaza onslaught for the killings of civilians, and former Congressman Barney Frank bridled, defending Israel. He then said the two others were ganging up on him. I’ve never seen Frank so on the defensive in his support for Israel. He accuses Clemons of being “anti-Israel” and is angry that Kornacki is taking “the other side.”

Video: Outraged constituents confront CT Senator Chris Murphy over support for Gaza attack

Commentary from Mondoweiss:
When Senator Chris Murphy invited his Connecticut constituents to a hike up East Rock Park this morning, he did not expect to be met by activists from the Middle East Crisis Committee and Jewish Voice for Peace. The activists had gathered to express outrage at Murphy’s support for Israel’s ongoing massacre of over 300 Gazans. Captured on video, Senator Murphy denied knowledge of the Senate’s recent Resolution 498–a greenlight for Israel’s war–despite the fact that Murphy himself co-sponsored it.

“I was staggered to hear Murphy deny support for a bill that he co-sponosred,” said Stan Heller of the Middle East Crisis Committee.

Israel: America’s Frankenstein monster

......From the American perspective Israel looks something like Frankenstein’s monster, a morally dubious and arguably unnatural creation that was stitched together with the noblest of intentions but not much foresight, and that produced a painful litany of unintended consequences. In that analogy we are Victor Frankenstein, who can never unmake his wayward creature, control it or untether himself from it. If I remember the story correctly, they destroy each other in the end.

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Freemason BUS & the House of Rothschild

.... Jefferson watched as the Euro-banking conspiracy to control the United States unfolded, weighing in, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day, but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”. [7[

But the Rothschild-sponsored Hamilton’s arguments for a private US central bank carried the day. In 1791 the Bank of the United States (BUS) was founded, with the Rothschilds as main owners. The bank’s charter was to run out in 1811. Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank. The debate was postponed as the nation was plunged by the Euro-bankers into the War of 1812. Amidst a climate of fear and economic hardship, Hamilton’s bank got its charter renewed in 1816.

Gaza is a concentration camp, and it’s an American delusion not to recognize that — Weschler

Lawrence Weschler, a writer of considerable mainstream prestige, is sick of prevaricating about Israel. It’s rabid. It has rabies. And Gaza is a concentration camp. Weschler has let loose chiefly because of the “remorseless” and “repetitively compulsive” aspect of Israeli violence. I believe that understanding is now widely shared in the liberal mainstream, and interventions like Weschler’s make it easier for others to speak up. From Truthdig:

I know, I know, and I am bone tired of being told it, when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is plenty of blame to go around, but by this point after coming on almost 50 years of Israeli stemwinding and procrastinatory obfuscation, I’d put the proportionate distribution of blame at about the same level as the mortality figures—which is, where are we today (what with Wednesday morning’s four children killed while out playing on a Gaza beach)? What, 280 to 2?

12 Reasons Why Should Obama be Arrested Under the Patriot Act and the NDAA?

Never mind impeaching Obama. He needs to be arrested by the Sargent of Arms in Congress or a Courageous General in the Pentagon placing him in military custody under house arrest at Camp David or another secure location awaiting a fair and impartial trial having a jury of his peers with the assistance of council. The Patriot act and the NDAA can be used to arrest President Obama because of his terrorist ties and giving aid, working to undermine and destroy what is left of the republic by refusing to secure the border under Article 4 section 4 putting the American people in danger with diseases, releasing violent felons on the streets of American instead of deporting them, giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States and trying to collapse the country. Something has to give or we face a great danger if this Dictator is not stopped in his tracks. Because we believe in the rule of law. President Obama will have due process of the law the NDAA and the Patriot act denies.

Bank of America reports 43% drop in quarterly profits

Bank of America has reported a 43% drop in its second-quarter profits after a fall in mortgage revenue and a rise in legal costs.

The bank, the US's second largest, said net income of $2.3bn (£1.34bn) was down from $3.4bn (£1.99bn) a year earlier.

Its finances have been hit recently by huge payments to the authorities to fend off accusations of wrong-doing.

In the past year, its earnings per share have fallen from 32 cents (19p) to 19 cents (11p).

In April the bank agreed to pay $9.5bn for misleading US mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before the financial crisis in 2008.

Scandal at the FDA: board members with drug maker ties voted to approve drug that's killing women

An investigation by the Washington Monthly and the British Medical Journal determined that at least four members of an FDA advisory board which voted to approve a drug used in the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin had either done work for the drugs' manufacturer or received research funds from the manufacturer. Though the four committee members disclosed their ties to the FDA, the FDA decided that the ties did not matter and did not make the disclosures public. Tragically, the drugs the committee endorsed have been killing the women who take them.

US Aims at Blowing EU-Russia Rift with Downed Airliner

When assessing culpability, it is not only significant to ask the criminologist’s question: who benefits? It is also significant to observe how the political and media reaction to events quickly takes on an unmistakably scripted pre-ordained formula. In this case, there is more than a pungent whiff of premeditated action-reaction dialectic going on.

American geopolitical interests are best served by this atrocity, by shocking a laggardly Europe into adopting its aggressive sanctions towards Russia, even though that militates against European economic concerns. Shooting down a civilian airliner would ensure blowing a decisive rift between Europe and Russia.

Republicans Rule Out Obama-Impeachment. But Democrats.. We’ll See:

President Obama is the most-despised American President in history; he’s dragging his Party down, but will Democrats impeach him, as Republicans did not impeach Bush (and thereby they became justifiably despised along with him, and so lost the 2008 election)?

Gallup had headlined on 22 April 2008 (bare months before the 2008 elections), “Bush’s 69% Job Disapproval Rating Highest in Gallup History,” and on 1 May 2008, CNN bannered “Poll: Bush Most Unpopular in Modern History” and they reported that, “A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Thursday indicates that 71 percent of the American public disapprove of how Bush is handling his job as president.”

Republicans, of course, lost overwhelmingly in 2008.

And it really is remarkable, and not hyperbole, that there is nothing that makes major media figures and news executives more petrified than reporting on Israel. I mean, the way in which they become so frightened to do any sort of reporting that could make what they call Israel’s supporters inside the United States angry really can’t be overstated.

The rating was, as Gallup put it, “likely propelled by a groundswell of national pride with the annexation of Crimea in March on the heels of the Sochi Olympic Games in February.”

The police arrested Abu Khdeir’s uncle and cousins without charges.

The Israeli motive appears to have been revenge for the family’s role in publicizing CCTV footage of Abu Khdeir’s brutal beating at the hands of Israeli police, and their public campaign to secure his return to the US.

Was MH17 Sabotaged By An Israeli Security Team At Amsterdam Schiphol Airport?

As the only non-European journalist to cover The Hague inquiry into the Amsterdam crash of El Al flight 1862 (October 1992), which destroyed a Biljmeer district apartment complex, I discovered many aspects of the Israeli security set-up at Schipol International Airport and the role of the Mossad intelligence agency in secret operations there, one of Europe’s business transport hubs. This same airport spy network is very likely involved in the recent crash of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over the Ukraine. . . .

Once again, this time in the destruction of MH17, there is an Israeli-connected air crash with political ramifications involving Israeli strategic interests, inside Israel exactly when its military launches an invasion of Gaza and in troubled Ukraine, a supplier of military electronics to the IDF.

New Information Provides New Questions About Malaysian Flight

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

Only yesterday, I wrote an article entitled “6 Reasons To Question The Official Story Of The Malaysian Flight Over Ukraine” where, as the title suggests, I briefly discussed a number of reasons the story presented by Western media outlets blaming Ukrainian separatists and even the Russian government for shooting down the plane were both contradictory and dubious.

Now, on the day after the crash of the flight, more information has emerged regarding the details surrounding what actually brought the flight down. Yet, as is typical in international incidents, the Western press reports simply add more questions to the pile.

First, it is important to point out the deceptive nature of many of the Western reports so it can be demonstrated that the credibility of all future reports should be viewed as highly questionable...

Perhaps, then, we can impress Middle East “experts” and “non-violent resistance” -mind you, I am using the V word- butterflies. I wonder, moreover, what authority, defined by what experience, entitles these experts and butterflies to ask us, the Palestinians, to put down our arms. Nonsense.

Superpower - A Rebuke of US Global Economic and Military Superiority

Should citizens trust that their government will keep them safe, a government that keeps secrets, and lies, in the name of national security? Does the simple act of withholding information lead to a world of eroding civil liberties and corruption? Superpower presents a view of US foreign policy, which lies in stark contrast to that depicted by corporate media, popular pundits, and US heads of state. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the US has emerged as the preeminent superpower of the world. Superpower illustrates how the United States has chosen to leverage that position to pursue a grand strategy which will ensure itself unilateral world domination through absolute economic and military superiority. It shows a consistent pattern of government deception.

Zero-Sum Privacy: The More Secrets Government Has, The Fewer We Do

The consequences of the NSA’s omnivorous eavesdropping aren’t all bad: to foil American espionage, Germany’s politicians may join Russia’s in reverting to typewriters. That move will doubtless diminish the productivity, such as it is, of both sets of sponges, just as forgoing shipments by planes and trucks in favor of horse-drawn wagons would empty supermarkets pretty dang quick. And while I’m not expecting a hearty “Thank you!” from the serfs of either nation, they owe us one nonetheless: our taxes keep the NSA snooping on their rulers, whose abilities to tyrannize will shrink if they do indeed shun the internet.

Obama Admin Planned Children Invasion

Documents show that since 2012, Catholic and Baptist agencies have
received millions of dollars from the Obama Administration
for the "Unaccompanied Alien Children Project."
Since last October, over 60,000 Central American children
have flooded into the US.

Catholic bishops and Catholic Charities have been in collusion with the Obama Administration - in violation of "separation of church and state"
Obviously the Government's motive isn't altruism.

America Is Ripe For Authoritarianism

America is on the precipice of a fascist uprising. While liberals have consistently leveled the f-word against opponents on the right, much the same way conservatives have appropriated socialist or Marxist against those on the political left, there is now data showing that proto-fascist movements are on the rise.

Neocons Get Ball Rolling On World War III

Obama, Hillary Clinton, the State Department, John McCain and others in government have reached the conclusion Russia was behind the deadly attack on a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine. They have reached this conclusion despite the fact the attack occurred less than 24 hours ago and an investigation has yet to begin.

The neocon wing of the establishment is ready to begin the process of blaming Russia and start the process of punitive sanctions.

14 Reasons Obama Is Lying When He Claims The World Is ‘More Stable’ And ‘Less Violent’ Than Ever

With a straight face, Barack Obama has been repeatedly telling us that the world is "more stable" and "less violent" than ever. In fact, he believes that this is the best time in history to be alive because of how peaceful and stable everything is. And of course Obama is more than happy to take credit for his role in bringing all of this "stability" about. Just this week, his press secretary told the media that this administration has "substantially improved" the "tranquility of the global community". Apparently these guys don't think that we will notice all of the violence, war and terrorism constantly raging all around us.

The Human Price of Neocon Havoc

Whether the tragedy is four boys getting blown apart while playing on a beach in Gaza or nearly 300 killed from a suspected missile strike on a Malaysian Airliner over Ukraine or the thousands upon thousands of other innocent victims slaughtered in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other recent war zones, the underlying lesson is that the havoc encouraged by America’s neocons results in horrendous loss of human life.

The overriding lesson from these tragedies should be that the real villains are people who opt for chaos and war over progress and peace. And, in the case of the Middle East and Ukraine, the greatest purveyors of this unnecessary warfare are America’s neocons.

Company co-founded by Nancy Pelosi’s son charged with securities fraud

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged a company cofounded by Paul Pelosi Jr. with fraud on Wednesday after learning that two convicted criminals were running the business.

Paul Pelosi Jr., the son of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), was the president and chief operating officer of Natural Blue Resources Inc., an investment company he cofounded that focuses on “environmentally-friendly” ventures.

The SEC charged four individuals with fraud, including former New Mexico Gov. Toney Anaya, and suspended trading in the company’s stock. Pelosi owned over 10 million shares in the company in 2009.

The SEC said Wednesday the company was “secretly controlled” by James E. Cohen and Joseph Corazzi, both of whom had previous fraud convictions. Corazzi violated federal securities laws and was barred from acting as an officer or director of a public company. Cohen was previously incarcerated for financial fraud.

Plane crash builds pressure on West over Ukraine

Palestinian Children Have No Iron Dome

One day after a U.S. congressional committee voted to send more U.S. tax dollars to bolster Israel’s Iron Dome shield, four Palestinian boys were killed on an open beach by Israeli shelling from a naval ship offshore.
At the moment, with the Israeli ground invasion under way, the future looks bleak. Have we reached a tipping point? Will the Gaza beach murders be the moment when the world wakes up?

Or as Jon Stewart asks us in the clip above, “has the world gone mad?”

Homeland Security Starting to Police American Towns: Community Outreach to Desensitize Public

Residents of Greenville, North Carolina were alarmed this week after finding armed Department of Homeland Security officers out in full force in their community. Many residents were concerned, thinking there must be an imminent terrorist threat – after all, DHS is a federal agency that’s supposed to protect the country from terrorist threats, so why else would armed Department of Homeland Security agents be in their neighborhoods? -- No Terrorist threat, just a Show of Federal Force

It would be wonderful if the planet actually was becoming a more peaceful place, but instead the exact opposite is happening. The world is becoming increasingly unstable, and if we aren't really careful we could see World War III break out before too long. But if you listen to Obama, he makes it sound like we are living in an emerging global utopia.

Christopher Bollyn - "How Disinformation is used to Suppress 9-11 Truth"

The 9-11 Truth movement has been the target of disinformation from the very beginning. This, of course, should be expected because the highest-level Zionist culprits behind the false-flag terrorism of 9-11 also control our government and media. Their evil agenda of war and conquest can only succeed by suppressing public awareness of what really happened on 9-11. The perpetrators of 9-11 are behind the disinformation campaign, which is meant to undermine the 9-11 Truth movement. It is, therefore, essential that we understand how they use disinformation to confuse and weaken the integrity of the truth movement. . .

. . . The fact that Donald Fox works for a Canadian financial company, which happens to be the largest partner in Tamir Fishman, an Israeli financial firm where Ehud Barak is a senior partner and adviser, suggests that his disinformation work against 9-11 Truth is connected to his employment at RBC Capital Markets. That would make sense.

McCain warns Putin over downed Malaysian airplane

Hawkish US Senator John McCain has pointed the finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin after a passenger plane was shot down over eastern Ukraine.

McCain said on Thursday if pro-Russian forces are linked to the crash, it would point directly to Putin.

“The separatists could have only gotten that capability from Russia and so therefore the culpable party here is Vladimir Putin,” he claimed.

The Fed’s Paint-By-The-Numbers Insanity: Why Humphrey-Hawkins Should Be Repealed Now

Janet Yellen’s circuitous prattle before the congressional committees this week is a reminder that the Humphrey-Hawkins Act is an obsolete relic and should be repealed. It arose out of the Keynesian heyday in the 1970s and is predicated on a closed US economy. That is, it presumes the macro-economy is a giant bathtub in which demand can be filled to the brim through “monetary accommodation”, and that a full tub will float jobs, GDP and public well-being to their optimum state.

Throwing BRICS at Israel

The USA and EU are in a epic brawl for resources and to save the US dollar from being marginalized to keep the current elite in power. What we are seeing is the multi-polar world crashing on the 20th century winners. This is what the conflicts in Ukraine, Iraq, Iran, and others including Gaza are really about.

Now for Israel Firsters, this is major blow because Israel’s power comes from its complete mastery of the USA and EU financial and political systems. Without the USA specifically, Israel is deep trouble.

Israel Launches Ground Offensive In Gaza

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

As much of the world focuses on the Malaysian flight that was allegedly shot down over Ukraine, Israel is preparing to launch a ground offensive against Palestinians living in Gaza.

Announcing the offensive on Twitter, the Israeli Defense Forces wrote "Our goal is to target Hamas' tunnels that enable terrorists to infiltrate Israel and carry out attacks.”

Although there was a brief ceasefire early Thursday so as to allow “residents to stock up on food and other supplies,” fighting resumed between the Israeli occupiers and Hamas when rockets were fired into Israeli occupied territory.

The Israelis responded by launching two airstrikes in the Gaza strip...

UK Adds Facial Recognition to Surveillance Arsenal

Nicholas West
Activist Post

The UK is probably the only place that surpasses New York's "Ring of Steel" for bringing a full-spectrum Big Brother surveillance state to reality. As far back as 2006, even the BBC reported that fears of a "surveillance society" already had taken effect as, at the time, there was 1 CCTV camera for every 14 people. It's now 1 for every 11, which is 5.9 million total cameras.

As the pace of facial recognition technology increases, as well as advances in artificial intelligence algorithms, the two are merging to provide police with easier and quicker access to matching all of the images from those millions of cameras, which are now stored in databases.

British police are ready to roll-out the latest technology called NeoFace which claims the ability to positively identify criminals in a matter of seconds. And it's not just Britain that is putting such systems into effect...

David Swanson: Worth Fighting For?

I was not sure I would like a book called Worth Fighting For by a former soldier who walked across the United States to raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation. The website of that foundation celebrates military “service” and the “higher calling” for which Tillman left professional football, namely participation in the U.S. war on the people of Afghanistan and Iraq. Rather than funding efforts to put an end to war, as Tillman actually might have wished by the end of his life, the foundation hypes war participation, funds veterans, and to this day presents Tillman’s death thusly...

Pure Manipulation, $1.3B of Paper Gold Dumped Onto Illiquid Market

There is one entity that has proven time and time again that they are quite capable of making money no matter which way the market moves.

That entity are the banks.

As we know, most markets are manipulated in some degree, but none more so than the commodities market.

Within the commodities market, some of the most rampant and blatant manipulation takes place in the precious metals market.

Manipulation that once was considered “conspiracy”, has now been proven true.

Unfortunately, even though the manipulation has been exposed, it still continues on.
