Who Are The Illuminati?

Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

“A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires” (Paul Simon).
“The world is governed by far different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Benjamin Disraeli).
“Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws” (Mayer Rothschild).

Conspiracy theory is the theory that most of the world is secretly governed by a small group of men who operate behind the scenes. Conspiracy theory is now an accepted turn of phrase but sometimes one hears the expression, sometimes whispered rather than spoken. “The Illuminati”.

What does this mean? Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.

The pivotal family is probably the house of Rothschild, the descendants of Mayer Rothschild (1743 – 1812) of Frankfurt. The male descendants of this family, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. The family established banking institutions in Vienna, London, Naples and Paris as well as Frankfurt. Ever since the middle ages, these families have been building their power by lending money at rates of interest to the monarchies and governments of Europe who were forever in debt, particularly in times of war. Sooner than tax the population to raise funds, always an unpopular measure, they usually preferred to borrow money from the money-lenders. This was the birth of the concept “the national debt.” The countries of the world are forever in debt but where there is a debtor there is a creditor – who is this money owed to? It is owed to this coterie of international bankers.

By the nineteenth century the power of the Rothschild family was immense. They increased their wealth with great cunning and cleverness, while maintaining a low public profile. A notable example of their methods was their exploitation of the battle of Waterloo. The Rothschilds had spies watching the course of the battle and as soon as became evident that Wellington had won, a Rothschild agent traveled at maximum speed to London, arriving hours before Wellington’s own messenger. Rothschild received the messenger and began conspicuously selling his stocks. The whole stock exchange assumed that Wellington had lost and Napoleon had won so everybody started selling, at this point, other Rothschild agents bought up huge stocks at give-away prices. Thus an already massive fortune was massively increased.

The Rockefeller family may be equally important. The pivotal figure in this family was J.D.Rockefeller, who made his fortune out of Standard Oil or Esso in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also controlled the railroads. When rival road transport systems were established he attempted to block them by parking his trains across the roads at level crossings. His basic business technique was the elimination of competitors at all costs, followed by the establishment of a monopoly, followed by profit taking. He rapidly gained a name for huge wealth, secrecy and hard and dirty business practice. In his later years he had a harsh and gaunt appearance, so to counter his bad “public image” JD more or less invented the PR industry. He had short films of himself made, calculated to charm the public, himself playing golf with a pretty little child for instance. This film was shown on TV recently. It has a rather false and amateurish air but was very effective with the public of the day.

The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon (the world’s biggest company) and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week. With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean? Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?

Apparently in the name of Lucifer, the fallen angel also known as the bringer of light, hence the name “Illuminati”, which means “the enlightened ones”. Lucifer is also known for the characteristics of pride, deception and impermanence. The illuminati were apparently founded in Bavaria in 1770 by one Adam Weisshaupt, a student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelsohn, and backed by the Rothschild family. The society has always been based on the lodges of Freemasonry, which was taken over at the highest levels during the course of the eighteenth century by agents of the Illuminati. Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, to the extent that members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. Hence it is an organisation which is full of bonhomie and good deeds at the lower and middle levels, while its motives and deeds at the highest levels veer towards the dark side.

Both Freemasonry and Judaism have strong roots in the ancient Egyptian systems of religious belief, and it was this very similarity which attracted the illuminati to Freemasonry, for most of them were Jewish. It is a source of controversy today to speculate whether or not they are still predominantly Jewish. No unfair racism intended – they either are or they aren’t. Certainly there is much evidence to suggest that they are not, George Bush for instance, a prominent illuminati figure and obviously not Jewish.

The all seeing eye on the U.S. Dollar Bill

The United States of America is more or less a creation of Freemasonry. The symbol of Freemasonry was placed on the cornerstone of the Whitehouse, while the assembled Freemasons lodges stood and watched the ceremony. The famous all-seeing eye in the pyramid appears on the one dollar bill. It is one of the main symbols of Freemasonry. This bill also bears the inscription, in Latin, “1776, the year of inception of a new world order”. If one joins the dots formed by the stars of the thirteen original states one obtains an exact Star of David.

The goal of the IlIuminati is total control of the world. The only nations, which are holding out against their power, are some Islamic nations and China but this resistance is limited because the Illuminati have crushing economic power.

There are certain methods of subjugation and control which are indispensable to this power. The first is, of course, complete control over all financial systems, all borrowing and lending. All banks, all building societies, all insurance companies have to be under their control. At the lowest level even the smallest bank will be forced to toe the line. At the highest level the World Bank decides the fate of countries. It is an interesting and amazing fact that both the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England are controlled by these Illuminati dynasties, in spite of the names of these banks, which suggest that they are run for public benefit. It is said that both Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy wanted to change this system.

The second essential component is control of the media. It is controlled through business fashion. If the board meeting, or the management meeting, or the sales meeting, or the training meeting suggests that facts should be presented in a certain way, who is going to present them differently? There is an implied threat to one’s job and one’s career. Few people would gladly face demotion, retrenchment or the dole and most people are so ambitious they will do nearly anything “reasonable” to court favour with their superiors. This is how business is controlled and the media is the most important part of business, for it controls people’s minds. People are very suggestible and often lend more credence to what they see on “the box” than to what happens on their own street. The Illuminati know this and use this suggestibility factor to the full. Lenin’s key move during the Russian revolution was the capture of the radio station.

The third factor in the control system is the universities, and through them the whole education system. Particular effort is put into the schools of sociology, politics, economics and education, hence “liberal” systems of education which are often degenerate and even violent. Their men are inserted into the universities through the power of funding by big business. They then spread their influence downwards through tertiary to secondary and primary education.

The fourth factor is the enormous influence wielded by two similar organisations, The Council of Foreign Relations in the USA and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England. These institutions are schools for statesmen, Illuminati statesmen. They are the stamping grounds of men such as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Lord Carrington. These two “think tanks” have a crucial influence on all US and British governments, no matter which party is “in power”. The statesmen produced by these institutions can and do decide the fate of nations.The tax-exempt foundations are also instruments of Illuminati power. The Ford foundation and the Rockefeller foundation are two prominent examples of this type of “charitable” institution. They were heavily involved in supporting various communist powers when the cold war was at its height. Communism versus capitalism arms race = more money and power for the Illuminati. So these are some of the structures through which the Illuminati work but what methods do they use?

Pitting one side against the other, using a theory devised by Hegel, which is: Thesis versus antitheses – synthesis.

Every force tends to have an opposite counterforce. The conflict between the two results in a new situation, the synthesis. The illuminati make it their business to be the synthesis. Thus no problem situation is ever “nipped in the bud” it is rather fostered and used, just as the Soviet Union was fostered and used.

The insertion of immigrant groups into countries is a variation of this divide and rule process. Each group can be played off against the other.

“Double talk” and “double think”. George Orwell knew instinctively what was going on when he invented these two expressions:
I categorically deny = it will happen a bit later.
Peace = war by another means.

To say one thing and do another is fundamental to Illuminati practice. They believe that the public will accept these lies through laziness and wishful thinking. Unfortunately they are usually correct.

“Keep them busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals.” We are kept so busy with business (or busyness) that we do not understand or participate in the decisions and events that will crucially affect our future.

When a real power move is made it is usually done secretly and suddenly often with the pretence that nothing has happened. There is preparation for opposition, but conflict is often not necessary as most people have been trained to be so passive that they will probably not create an effective opposition.

Use of front men in important positions. These front men have the characteristic of “servile obedience”, probably because of a blot or blots on their character which they are anxious to conceal. Most of the Presidents of the USA fall into this category. The current situation springs to mind. Behind the opponent stands the man with real power, who has long been groomed for this position. Men like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Bush are in this category.

The assassination of opposing leaders as quietly and as secretly as possible, so as to simulate a natural death. If this is not possible due to time constraints or other limited circumstances, surrogates are used and the lines of suspicion are covered by deception, false accusation and if necessary, multiple assassinations. Induced heart attacks, fake motor accidents and apparent suicides are also favoured methods of assassination.

Social engineering. An easily manipulated rabble is what is required. Mixed population groups with weak morals, weak traditions, low educational standards and weak group willpower are the aim. Those with special aptitudes can be taken out and trained to serve the illuminati for technical purposes, security purposes or as part of the propaganda apparatus. The middle class will become surplus to requirements and will be reduced to relative poverty.

Mockery and submission of the manners and morals of societies which show any resistance. Control of the media, the fashion industries and the education systems are essential components in this strategy. “Free love”, the cult of youth, mockery of the Christian and Muslim faiths also fall into this category. “I don’t give a rats ass about Jesus Christ” is one recent masterpiece from one of Hollywood’s biggest starts. He probably didn’t realise what he was saying, which makes him a “useful idiot’. A “useful idiot” is much more effective than a conscious supporter. By these means of subversion societies and nations are conquered from within and open battle is usually not necessary.

The conduct of unrelenting economic warfare. This is the real war and continues even while the bombs are falling and the bullets are flying. The important part is the control of the enemy’s economy after the conflict. The recent economic crash in the far-eastern countries is in reality an assertion of the Illuminati’s economic power, an expression of economic dominance. The Illuminati now control 10-15% of the Japanese economy. This is public knowledge, that is what has been bought at bargain prices. In reality they probably control much more.

Control and exploitation of the standards of public health. The sale of prescription drugs is a huge business generating mega profits. Medical operations and treatments can also be very profitable to big business. These extreme treatments have their place but are over-used for the sake of profit.

In fact big business, particularly the big drug companies, have a vested interest in the ill health of the population. These companies, working through the US Food and Drug Administration, have tried to suppress the health food industry. In this they have largely failed but now the game is to own it and control it so that health foods can only be afforded by the elite.

Argument through defamation of character. The factual debate is ignored while characters are defamed. This is usually a very effective technique as many human beings are very suggestible and seem reluctant to use their reasoning abilities. Thus a “smear campaign” can easily draw attention away from the facts.

To conclude, it is growing increasingly evident that a world government is developing, and many would say that it is probably no bad thing, but few have asked for what purpose this “new world order” is created. Nor have they asked themselves what the consequences will be. These consequences (or some of them) will probably be as follows:

• Increasing profits for big business, increasing poverty for the middle class (who they despise). A rapid decline in moral standards and the promotion of social decay.

• Transience. Jobs that don’t last; neighbourhoods that don’t last.

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

• Decline and demise of public services; replacement by private enterprise – good service for the few who can afford it.

• Ongoing ill health for the bulk of the population because of stress; poor quality foods; food additives; genetic engineering; pollution and drugs. There may be good health for those who can afford it – only the rich and well informed.

• The gradual phasing out of national governments, which will have powers more like the regional governments of today.

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

In time a world leader will be announced, a real one this time. A pity he will have a cynical contempt for the most of humanity. Do we deserve it?

Popular Radio Host Michael Savage Broadcast Shut Down Nationwide as He Discusses Clinton’s Health…

By Sundance — The Last Refuge Sept 26, 2016

michael-savage-1Wow. This is quite remarkable.

Michael Savage is a very well known radio talk personality. The Savage Nation is a nationally syndicated talk show that is the second most listened-to radio talk show in the country with an audience of over 20 million listeners on 400 stations across the United States.

Earlier today he was discussing his perspectives on the presidential debate and giving examples of current and anticipated debate bias.

In addition, the broadcaster began discussing Hillary Clinton’s mysterious health condition that Savage believes might be Parkinsons.

Almost immediately, and without any notification, New York (tri-state area) radio station WABC-Radio TV cut Savage off the air and replaced him with the lesser rated  Curtis And Cooby Show.

Shortly thereafter, as Michael Savage discovered the issue and began discussing what was going on in/around the New York broadcast area, all Savage affiliates nationwide cut off the broadcast and replaced the live transmission with a recording of a previous show.

Here’s a recording of the 2nd hour broadcast today that explains what was going on, as it was going on in real time, and as Savage began finding out what was happening.   The explanation culminates best around the 23:00 point of this audio.

Ahmadinejad Allies Say Iran Leader Told Him Not to Run Again

Amir Vahdat — Associated Press Sept 27, 2016

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Close allies of Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose presidency was marked by confrontation with the West, said Monday that the country’s supreme leader recommended he not run in next May’s presidential election because he is a polarizing figure among hard-liners.

Mohammad Reza Mirtajeddini, Ahmadinejad’s vice president from 2009 to 2013, and Gholamreza Mesbahi Moghadam, a former parliamentarian and influential cleric, confirmed the news to the website Khabar Online.

Moghadam said Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s advice amounted to a “serious state objection” to Ahmadinejad’s potential candidacy, and that the former president would follow his advice.

“If he doesn’t follow the state objection, he will defiantly lose many of his supporters,” Moghadam added.

During a meeting with clerics on Monday, Khamenei said he recommended that a potential candidate not run, without naming him. Khamenei warned that it would lead to a “polarized situation” that would be “harmful for the county.”

The supreme leader has the final say on all state matters in Iran. All candidates must be approved by the Guardian Council, a clerical body in which Khamenei appoints half the members.

Ahmadinejad has not announced any plans to run for re-election, but has made several speeches in recent months, prompting speculation. While Ahmadinejad previously served two four-year terms, Iranian law calls only for a one-term cooling-off period before he’s eligible to run again.

In August, the former president wrote a letter to President Barack Obama, asking him to “quickly fix” a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allowed families of people killed in attacks linked to Iran to collect damages from some $2 billion in frozen Iranian assets.

During his eight-year presidency, Ahmadinejad repeatedly questioned the scale of the Nazi Holocaust and predicted the demise of Israel. He also greatly expanded Iran’s controversial nuclear program, prompting tighter international sanctions, which were eventually lifted under last year’s nuclear deal.

His disputed 2009 re-election saw widespread protests and violence. Two of his former vice presidents have since been jailed for corruption.

US Air Force releases first details of top secret B-21 that could take to the air in 2020

Mark Prigg — Daily Mail Sept 26, 2016

The Air Force’s long-range strike bomber that will replace the antique B-52’s developed during the cold war has officially been named the B-21 Raider.

The all-black plane has a distinctive, zigzagging shape and a low profile designed to make it hard to spot on radar.

It is ‘projected to enter service in the mid-2020s, building to a fleet of 100 aircraft.’

The name was ultimately selected by James and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Dave Goldfein after a panel composed of staff from AFGSC and Headquarters Air Force determined the top-ranked selections from more than 2,100 unique naming submissions.

‘The B-21 is intended to operate in both conventional and nuclear roles, with the capability of penetrating and surviving in advanced air defense environments,’ The Air Force said.

‘It will be capable of operation by an onboard crew or piloted remotely.’

Earlier this year the US Air Force unveiled the first image of its new stealth bomber when Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James provided the world with the first glimpse of the project using an artist’s rendering.

The rendering bears more than a passing resemblance to the Air Force’s B-2 bomber, which is also made by Northrop Grumman.

However the new document reveals it may not be that accurate.

‘The released rendering shows a flying-wing design not dissimilar to the B-2, although simpler in shape.

‘It resembles early proposed designs that later evolved into the B-2.’

The report also outlines the craft’s unmanned capabilities, saying ‘Initial B-21s will be manned, with unmanned operation possible several years after initial operational capability (IOC).’

Nuclear qualification will also take two years or so after IOC, the report says.

It is designed to be launch from the continental US and deliver airstrikes on any location in the world.

At an earlier event in Orlando, James revealed the plane – previously known as the Long Range Strike Bomber – would be called the B-21 until a new name has been agreed on, and she invited air crews to help.

The designation B-21 recognises the aircraft as the military’s first bomber of the 21st century.

‘This aircraft represents the future for our Airmen, and (their) voice is important to this process,’ James told the Air Force Association’s Air Warfare Symposium

The program has been shrouded in secrecy since its inception for fear of revealing military secrets to potential enemies.

The military also wanted to avoid giving the losing bidders any details before their formal protest was rejected last week.

The Air Force wants 100 of the warplanes, which will replace the ageing B-52s and the B-1 bombers that first saw action in the 1980s.

Industry news reports say that while the new plane’s specific capabilities are highly secret, it likely will be equipped with high-tech communications gear and other electronics that would allow it to perform a variety of missions, not just dropping bombs.

The new bomber is a high Air Force priority because the oldest ones in its fleet — the venerable B-52s — have far outlived their expected service life.

B-2 Stealth Bomber

B-2 Stealth Bomber

Even the newest — the B-2 stealth bombers — having been flying for more than two decades.

A third bomber, the B-1, is used heavily for conventional strikes, but no longer is certified for nuclear missions.

The Pentagon in October announced Northrop as the winner of the contract to build the bomber in a decades-long program that will likely end up costing in excess of $100 billion.

But work on the new plane was delayed for months while federal auditors reviewed a protest by Boeing and its key supplier, Lockheed Martin.

Boeing has now told senior U.S. Air Force leaders that it will not take further legal action challenging the contract, Reuters said, citing two sources familiar with the decision.

The Air Force, under pressure from lawmakers and retired Air Force officers, has promised to release more information about the new plane in March.

And the program has now survived the legal protest process, it still faces hurdles in Congress.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain on Thursday said he would block the Air Force’s use of a cost-plus type of contract for the long-range bomber since it holds the government responsible for cost overruns.

The Air Force says that only the engineering and development phase of the program, valued at $21.4 billion, is structured as a cost-plus contract with incentive fees.

Analysts say the program will be worth around $80 billion in total, providing a boon to Northrop and its key suppliers, but the Air Force has said only that it expects to pay $511 million per plane.

John Michael Loh, a retired four-star U.S. Air Force general, has urged the Air Force to name Northrop’s suppliers to shore up support in Congress, and avoid a re-run of the B-2 bomber program, which was scaled back from 132 planes to just 21, which drove the price of each plane sharply higher.

Parenting Magazine Warns ‘Blond, Cheerful’ Families Dangerous, Likely Right Wing

Virginia Hale — Breibart.com Sept 25, 2016

parenting-magazine-warns

Parenting magazine Baby & Family has told readers to beware of families who are “inconspicuous” and “cheerful”, as these warning signs indicate they are right wing and thus “dangerous”.

Depicted with illustrations featuring solely blonde women and children, the report says ordinary parents must take action against right-wing families and make clear that their ideology has no place in the world.

Asserting that the term “right wing” “stirs up anxiety” and brings to mind “burning refugee homes”, skinheads, and the National Socialist Underground (NSU) group who carried out a string of violent attacks on foreign people, Baby & Family notes that people “rarely connect it with women, family and children”.

This, the high-circulation German magazine declares, “is precisely the great risk” as such people are just as dangerous if not more so as gangs of Nazi skinheads. The identifying features of right-wing families, it contends, are that they are “inconspicuous, blond, cute and engaged”.

“First of all, [right-wing families] are nice and dedicated” Michaela Köttig, sociologist and researcher of right-wing extremism at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, alleges.

Researcher of right-wing politics, Eva Prausner, says a huge danger of right-wing families is that they seem normal.

Because of this, she says many parents will already have established good relations with them to the point that they “are no longer marginalised and at worst, get support”.

While there are different types of right-wing families, Baby & Family asserts that daycare centres should always seek help when dealing with them.

“The right has many forms. The definition of what is extreme and what is not is difficult”, it says, but asserts that all manifestations must be dealt with because right wingers could spread their views when meeting with other parents in the playground.

Heike Radvan of the controversial Amadeu Antonio Foundation warns that “children of right-wing parents are not necessarily different from other children”, but says they are often “very obedient” and might not talk much.

Despite asserting that such children are not outspoken, the “experts” wheeled out by the magazine warn that a sinister aspect of right-wing parenting is that they instil self-confidence in their progeny.

They do this, Prausner posits, in hope that “their offspring will later confidently carry their ideology into the world”.

Köttig explains that right-wing families are not unlike ordinary families in that they teach their own values. The important difference with extreme right-wing groups, however, is that these values are “strongly geared at Germanic customs and traditions”.

Prausner says “right-wing kids” are aware that they should keep their family lives private, but she adds that a telltale sign of right-wing extremism is that there are usually no American logos on their parents’ clothing.

This is not to say there aren’t visual signs which can indicate a child is from a right-wing family, however, the researcher points out. Prausner warns that, while most people wouldn’t recognise them as such, “accurate braids and long skirts” serve as a warning sign that a child has right-wing parents.

The report advises some ways in which daycare centres can prepare for the event that right-wing parents register their children with them. It advises introducing a policy and mission statement to set out values for which the nursery stands.

Mothers and fathers should get involved in the parents’ council to take action against right-wing parents, Baby & Family notes. They should “not be afraid to confront [right-wing parents] directly”, it states.

“Even if it is difficult, you should immediately set limits and say that you do not want to hear this,” Köttig says. Radvan, meanwhile, declares: “Understanding has no place in such situations.”

Thomas Feist, MP for the ruling Christian Democratic Union party (CDU), has requested that the government stop funding the Antonio Amadeus Foundation, pointing out that the supposed “charity” hosts and rewards threats of violence, and denunciations of people on its website.

The body was founded, and is run by, ex-Stasi agent Anetta Kahane who has declared it vital for the European Union to change its immigration policy in order to turn the continent non-white.

She said: “This is very important; you have to change the educational system and the self-understanding of the states. They are not only white anymore or only Swedish or only Portuguese or only German. They are multicultural places in the world.”

Despite how, as Feist points out, the far-left organisation’s website is now singling out the CDU and some of its politicians as dangerous and right wing, the foundation runs the government’s crackdown on people who criticise open door mass migration and the violent behaviour of migrants towards the German people.

Angelina Jolie Admits To Illuminati Sacrifice In Leaked Video

Introduction — Sept 26, 2016

Angelina Jolie back tattoo. Click to enlarge

Angelina Jolie’s tatoos

We can’t confirm that the female in the video below is actually Angelina Jolie. Although there certainly is a resemblance the video itself is old.
However, that doesn’t mean that the video isn’t authentic. Given Jolie’s meteoric rise to fame and the way she has been lionised by both Hollywood and by politicians and bodies like the United Nations, all of which may be part of the payoff.
Angelina Jolie has also been appointed a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II for her campaign to end sexual violence. Put that together with her work as a UNHCR Ambassador and you might think that was being groomed for a prominent political role, a part that she has admitted she would be open to.
All of which means that if Angelina Jolie assumes a more potent political post, she will probably owe her power and position to much darker forces. Ed.

Russia Prepares for War, Plans to Move Thermonuclear ICBMs to Border

Kurt Nimmo — Blacklisted News Sept 25, 2016

RS-24 Yars ICBM. Click to enlarge

RS-24 Yars ICBM. Click to enlarge

Last week TASS reported Russia’s western-most ICBM division will be rearmed with the RS-24 Yars missile system. Yars is a MIRV-equipped, thermonuclear, intercontinental ballistic missile that can reportedly carry up to 10 independently targetable warheads. The ICBM RS-24 Yars constitutes the backbone of Russia’s strategic missile force.

“The westernmost strategic missile force division in the Tver region will soon begin to be rearmed with the missile system Yars. It will be a sixth strategic missile division where the newest mobile ground-based missile complexes will replace the intercontinental ballistic missile Topol,” Sergey Karakayev, the commander of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force told the news agency.

The Russians claim the deployment is in response to NATO installing a US anti-missile system in Eastern Europe in violation of previous Russian-US arms treaties. The United States has made the outrageous claim its missile system is designed to respond to threats from Iran.

“Now, after the deployment of those anti-missile system elements, we’ll be forced to think about neutralizing developing threats to Russia’s security,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in May.

Putin added that the US anti-missile systems currently in place in Romania and soon in Poland can be easily be repurposed to fire short and mid-range missiles.

Russia announced it would modernize a launch detection system in response to the threat along its border. It has also discussed stationing its state-of-the art Iskander missiles at its westernmost Baltic outpost of Kaliningrad which borders NATO members Poland and Lithuania. The Iskander travels at hypersonic speed and is capable of evading anti-ballistic missiles.

In addition to missiles and nuclear warheads, NATO and Russia have engaged in massive war games this year. NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise involved more than 30,000 troops, about half of them Americans, and thousands of combat vehicles from 24 nations. The huge exercise simulated battle maneuvers across Poland. A simultaneous naval exercise, BALTOPS 16, simulated “high-end maritime warfighting” in the Baltic Sea. Exercises were conducted in the waters near Kaliningrad, the Russian enclave between Poland and Lithuania. The maritime exercise represented a clear provocation.

“All of this—the aggressive exercises, the NATO buildup, the added US troop deployments—reflects a new and dangerous strategic outlook in Washington. Whereas previously the strategic focus had been on terrorism and counterinsurgency, it has now shifted to conventional warfare among the major powers,” Michael T. Klare wrote for The Nation in July.

“Washington might intend the military buildup as pressure on President Putin to reduce Russian opposition to Washington’s unilateralism. However, it reminds some outspoken Russians such as Vladimir Zhirinovsky of Hitler’s troops on Russia’s border in 1941,” notes Paul Craig Roberts.

“To make the crisis clear for my readers and for all peoples, Washington is surrounding Russia with nuclear missile sites that can be silently converted from ABMs to first strike nuclear missiles that can reach Russian targets in a mere few minutes. Washington attempted to disguise this first strike capability with the explanation that the missiles were there to protect against an Iranian ICBM attack on Europe. This explanation was given by the US government despite the fact that everyone knows that Iran has neither ICBMs nor nuclear weapons,” he writes on his website.

Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, is not optimistic about what such frenzied military activity portends.

He believes it is futile for Americans to plan for retirement.

“The crazed American government drowning in its own hubris has set us on a course to nuclear war. Can America produce a leader who can reverse course?”

Hillary Clinton will undoubtedly continue along this suicidal path. Donald Trump has said repeatedly he will not confront Russia. However, he has announced if elected the United States will expand its already massively inflated military budget.

Russia Contacted US Twice to Stop Coalition’s Massacre of Syrian Army Troops

21st Century Wire — Sept 24, 2016

On Saturday Sept 17, 2016, some of the world witnessed an egregious event which has nudged the world closer to a dangerous World War. That morning, we learned how the US ‘Coalition’ launched a brutal air attack which killed at least 70 soldiers and wounded 100 others.  

Washington claimed that this airstrike was a “mistake” and that it was somehow meant to target ISIS near the eastern city of Deir el-Zour in Syria. It was a sustained attack that lasted for 1 hour, featuring repeated bombing runs by US, UK, Australian and Danish aircraft.

More interestingly, after the US took out the Syrian Military, ISIS then came down from the hills and advanced to a better strategic position closer to Deir el-Zour. The following are excerpts from an interview with Syrian army survivors:

“We first thought the aircraft are support to us after the first 2 shots, but we quickly found out that they are targeting our forces aggressively, while we were fighting IS terrorists. The aircraft used cluster bombs against us.”

“A day before the airstrikes, the drones were flying and scanning all the area”

“The US airstikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.

“IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing. US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces.

“It is for sure wasn’t not a mistake, they targeted us intentionally, to help IS.”

Make of that what you will, but US Coalition claims of an “errant strike” ring hollow in the face of mounting facts to the contrary…

The Russian military tried to contact its US counterparts twice to warn them they were launching airstrikes against Syrian government forces before they were eventually halted, a senior US spokesman has revealed.

Col. John J. Thomas, a spokesman for US Central Command, told reporters at the Pentagon that about half an hour into the airstrikes, which were being undertaken by US-led coalition warplanes on September 17, the coalition air operations center (CAOC) received a call from a Russian officer.

The officer asked to speak to the designated contact, but that person was away from the phone. The Russians called back and the representative took the phone call. In less than 5 minutes, “the call to knock it off was put in place and the attacks ceased,” according to Thomas.

However, the damage had been done, as 62 Syrian government soldiers had been killed by the airstrikes near Deir ez-Zor, while a further 100 received injuries.

The CAOC said that it had told the Russian military about its plans to launch airstrikes at that location, as it believed it would be targeting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.

“We never had struck regime targets in this conflict, we didn’t intend to at the time and we won’t in the future. So when we heard that we may be doing that it was our obligation to call it off immediately and that’s what they did,” Thomas said in the briefing.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the aircraft which carried out the bombings had entered Syrian airspace from the territory of Iraq.

Four strikes against Syrian positions were performed by two F-16 jet fighters and two A-10 support aircraft, it added.

“If the airstrike was caused by the wrong coordinates of targets, then it’s a direct consequence of the stubborn unwillingness of the American side to coordinate with Russia in its actions against terrorist groups in Syria,” Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said.

I’m Raising My Son as a Boy

henrymakow.com — Sept 26, 2016

skirtsUntil recently, this question would be considered absurd. But the Masonic Jewish central banking cartel and their lackeys are erasing the gender division fundamental to the natural order.
At war with God, they want to turn Reality upside down. They make unnatural seem natural, sick seem healthy, insane seem sane, ugly seem beautiful, evil seem good and false seem true.  Society is  satanically possessed by Cabalist JudaismFreemasonry  and their myriad proxies.

by Brianna Sharbaugh — (Abridged by henrymakow.com) 

Transgenderism has taken over the headlines in American culture, even though research tells us the LGBTQ community represents less than 4% of the country’s population. This small but mighty community has me thinking, as a mom, what I’ll teach my son about gender. Are contemporary parents doing something wrong if they teach their children to identify with the gender they are given at birth?
Here Are 5 Reasons I am Teaching My Son That He Is a Boy
  1. Kids Frequently Change Their Minds

Kids are fickle. While walking through the grocery store with my son, he transforms from a lion to a monkey to an elephant at a moment’s notice. Children are indecisive, and choosing a gender does not change that fact. Research tells us the decision to transition during childhood is almost always met with regret. In fact, the DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) reports that “as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after natural passing through puberty.” That same manual states: “…many children with gender dysphoria outgrow it as they age.”

Why the cease-fire in Syria has failed

Thierry Meyssan — Voltairenet.org Sept 26, 2016

The Western public was enthusiastic about the US – Russia agreement for a cease-fire in Syria, and believed that it could bring peace. This shows that they have no memory of how the war was started, and no understanding of the goals it is meant to pursue. Explanations…

Donbass-Levant – two wars with a single goal. Tasked with cutting the «new Silk Road» which was intended to cross Siberia and enter the European Union via Ukraine, President Petro Porochenko visited the Security Council on 21 September, where he repeated the Anglo-Saxon propaganda concerning the war against Syria and Iraq, which is aimed at cutting the historic route of the «Silk Road».

Donbass-Levant – two wars with a single goal. Tasked with cutting the «new Silk Road» which was intended to cross Siberia and enter the European Union via Ukraine, President Petro Porochenko visited the Security Council on 21 September, where he repeated the Anglo-Saxon propaganda concerning the war against Syria and Iraq, which is aimed at cutting the historic route of the «Silk Road».

The cease-fire in Syria lasted no longer than the week of Eïd. There have been many cease-fires since the signature of the peace treaty between the United States and Russia. This one lasted no longer than the current peace or the previous cease-fires.

Let’s review the facts – on 12 December 2003, President George W. Bush signed a declaration of war against Syria, the Syrian Accountability Act. After a series of attempts to open hostilities (the Arab League summit of 2004, the assassination of Rafic Hariri in 2005, the war against Lebanon in 2006, the creation of the Islamic Salvation Front in 2007, etc.), US special forces took the offensive at the beginning of 2011, organising a hoax intended to make people believe that this was an interior Syrian «revolution». After two vetos by Russia and China in the Security Council, the United States finally accepted a peace treaty in Geneva which they signed, in the absence of the Syrian delegation, on 30 June 2012.

First remark
Those who pretend that the current conflict is not an exterior aggression, but a «civil war», can not explain the consequences of the declaration of war against Syria by President Bush in 2003, nor why the peace treaty of 2012 was signed by the major powers in the absence of any Syrian representative.

Since the signature of the peace treaty, four years ago, the war has started again, despite multiple attempts to find a solution, negotiated alone by Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian opposite number, Sergey Lavrov.

Throughout these last four years, I have noted, one by one, the conflicts within the US state apparatus (the manœuvres by Jeffrey Feltman and Generals David Petraeus and John Allen against President Obama, as well as the problems within CentCom). Today, according to the US Press, operatives of the CIA and those of the Pentagon have been waging a fierce war on one another in Syria – while Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter stated publicly that he did not believe that his men would apply the agreement signed by his colleague, John Kerry, who in turn said he was sceptical about his own capacity to enforce the respect of his signature by his country.

Second remark
Not only is President Barack Obama unable to impose his will on the different branches of his own administration, but he is also unable to mediate between them. Each branch pursues its own policy, both against the other branches and against exterior enemies.

The United States have changed their war aims many times, which makes their policy hard to analyse.

In 2001, Washington was attempting to control all the available oil and gas reserves in the world, convinced as they were that we were moving towards a period of penury. It was with this goal that the US united its allies against Syria. However, by the end of 2010, it abandoned the «peak oil» theory, and began working, on the contrary, towards energy independence.

In 2011, Washington organised the seige of Deraa, hoping that this would spark a popular uprising and enable the replacement of the secular Syrian government by the Muslim Brotherhood. This was the model for the «Arab Spring». And yet in 2013, after the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, it drew the conclusions of the failure of this experience, and abandoned the idea of handing over power in the Arab countries to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In 2014, since the war was still raging, Washington decided to use it to undercut President Xi Jinping’s project for the restoration of the «Silk Road» – at which point it became nesessary to transform the «Islamic Emirate in Iraq» into Daesh.

In 2015, after the military intervention of Russia, and without abandoning the anti-Chinese objective that it had set for itself, Washington added a second objective – to prevent Moscow from contesting US hegemony and the unipolar organisation of international relations.

Third remark
These changes of objective were obviously refused by the powers involved, which paid for them dearly – Qatar concerning the energy questions, and the Muslim Brotherhood concerning the overthrow of the régime. But these actors are supported by powerful lobbies in the United States – Exxon-Mobil (the most important multinational in the world), the Rockfeller family for Qatar, and the CIA and the Pentagon for the Muslim Brotherhood.

On the battlefield, the means deployed by Russia clearly demonstrate the superiority of its new weapons over those of NATO.

Fourth remark
For the chiefs of staff and the inter-army combat commanders of the United States (CentCom, EuCom, PaCom, etc.), the end of their domination in terms of conventional equipment can not allow their status as primary military power in the world to be contested. This forced them to dissociate themselves from the CIA concerning their use of the Muslim Brotherhood, while at the same time remaining their allies concerning the prevention of the Chinese deployment, and thus support for Daesh.

The Russo – US agreement of 9 September was clearly aimed at separating several groups – whose leaders had been judged acceptable by both parties – from the other jihadists [1]. Then to establish a military cooperation to crush the jihadists. and finally to form a government of national union which would include the leaders of the jihadist groups which had been separated – on the model of the local governments imposed by the European Empires on the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century.

The Pentagon accepted this agreement under two conditions – first of all, the Silk Road had to be cut. This led to the US bombing of the Syrian Arab Army in Deir ez-Zor, in order to prevent it from finally bypassing Daesh via the Euphrates valley. Then to work with the Russians, but on an equal footing.

The first condition is an act of war against Syria, in the very heart of the cease-fire, which offends the entire international community. The second is obviously inacceptable for Russia.

In order to mask the crimes committed by the Pentagon and the United Kingdom in Deir ez-Zor, the British agency MI6 organised the affair of the «bombing» of a humanitarian convoy.

In reality, this convoy had been searched by the Syrian Arab Army. It did not contain weapons (or no longer contained weapons), and had been authorised to continue across the border after the end of the cease-fire. It had been chartered by the Syrian Red Crescent, a NGO linked to the Damascus government, and was destined for the Syrian populations occupied by the jihadists. Contrary to Western declarations, it was never bombed, as demonstrated by the images broadcast by MI6 under the label of the «White Helmets». There are no bomb craters anywhere, and no structures have been damaged. The convoy was attacked from the ground and burned. Images taken by a Russian Army drone show the presence of jihadists at the moment of the attack, although the area was supposed to be demilitarised.

Whatever the facts are, the United States accused Russia of having violated the cease-fire, which it had not done, and which it had itself done by bombing the Syrian Arab Army in Deir ez-Zor. The Anglo-Saxon propaganda was repeated on 21 September, straight-faced, by the Ministers and Presidents of the Western camp, John Kerry (USA), Petro Porochenko (Ukraine), Jean-Marc Ayrault (France) and Boris Johnson (United Kingdom).

Final remark
The negotiations beween John Kerry and Sergey Lavrov have started again. Their objective is not to rewrite, yet again, another peace treaty about which everything has already been discussed. Their true goal is to help the State Department to overcome the resistance it is encountering in its own country.

Donald Trump: “Bombs were used on the World Trade Center!”

Kevin Barrett — Veterans Today Sept 25, 2016 with Rick Shaddock of ANETA.org

Rick Shaddock points out: “Donald Trump was the first 9/11 Truther to speak out on TV, on the very same day, challenging the official story, and saying bombs must have been used, years before Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth was founded, from the perspective of people who know buildings are built to stand strong, even against planes.”

Trump, like many other people who know something about how buildings are constructed, could not believe that planes could so easily penetrate the Towers’ steel exoskeleton and cause the complete destruction of the buildings.

On False Flag Weekly News this week, we covered Obama’s move to veto the JASTA bill allowing 9/11 survivors to sue foreign governments. (Trump blasted Obama for vetoing JASTA. Please click here to lobby for a JASTA override.)

If the 9/11 families sue the Saudis, will the Saudis defend themselves by pointing out that the 15 Saudi patsies were actually CIA agents? And that the whole World Trade Center was blown up by explosives, not destroyed by jet-fuel-kindled office fires?

While I personally do not view Trump as a 9/11 truth candidate – he would not be cozying up to neocons like Giuliani, Adelson, and Woolsey if he cared about the truth – we should hold his feet to the fire on this issue…and thank him for supporting JASTA.

Let us hope that Obama is right and millions of citizens of dozens of foreign countries sue the US government for its global terrorism, which has taken the lives of more than 50 million innocent people since World War II. Pass JASTA! Sue the Saudis…and then the Israelis!

Here are some same day statements by Donald Trump on Channel 9, on 9/11/2001.

TRANSCRIPT

Alan Marcus: Donald you’re probably the best-known builder particularly of great buildings in the city. There’s a great deal of question about whether or not the damage and and the ultimate destruction of the buildings was caused by the airplanes by architectural defect or possibly by bombs or more after shocks you have any thoughts on that?

Donald Trump: It wasn’t architectural defect. The World Trade Center was always known as a very very strong building. Don’t forget that took a big bomb in the basement (1993). Now, the basement is the most vulnerable place because that’s your foundation and it withstood that and I got to see that area about three or four days after took place because one of my structural engineers actually took me for a tour because he did the building and I said “I can’t believe it”. The the building was standing solid and half of the columns were blown out. This was an unbelievably powerful building. If you don’t know anything about structure it was one of the first buildings that was built from the outside. The steel, the reason the World Trade Center had such narrow windows is that in between all the windows, you had the steel on the outside, the steel on the outside of the building.

That’s why when I first looked – and you had these big heavy i-beams. When I first looked at it, I couldn’t believe it, because there was a hole in the steel and this is steel that was, you remember the width of the windows of the World Trade Center folks. I think you know if you were ever up there, they were quite narrow and in between was this heavy steel. I said how could a plane, even a plane, even a 767 or 747 or whatever it might have been, how could it possibly go through this steel? I happen to think that they had not only a plane but they had bombs that exploded almost simultaneously, because I just can’t imagine anything being able to go through that wall. Most buildings are built with the steel on the inside around the elevator shaft. This one was built from the outside which is the strongest structure you can have and it was almost just like a can of soup

Rolland Smith: You know, Donald we were looking at pictures all morning long of that plane coming into building number two and when you see that approach the far side and and all of a sudden within a matter of milliseconds the explosion pops out the other side.

Donald Trump: Right. I just think that there was a plane with more than just fuel. I think obviously they were very big planes. They were going very rapidly, because I was also watching where the plane seemed to be not only going fast it seems to be coming down into the building. So is getting the speed from going down hill so to speak. It just seemed to me that to do that kind of destruction is even more than a big plane because you’re talking about talking about steel, the heaviest caliber steel that was used on the building. These buildings were rock-solid and you know it’s just an amazing amazing thing. This country is different today and it’s going to be different than it ever was for many years to come.

Rolland Smith: A very profound statement and very true.

Merkel’s open-door policy hits German economy as 99% of migrants STILL don’t have a job

Oli Smith — Daily Express Sept 15, 2016

As many as one million migrants are thought to have entered Germany last year. Click to enlarge

Astonishing statistics revealed that only 1 in every 10,000 refugees who arrived during the massive migrant influx last year are now employed.

German firms have defended themselves after Angela Merkel blamed them for not hiring enough refugees.

The German leader unleashed a scathing criticism of local businesses – but company leaders claim refugees “are just not ready” for the job market.

German companies have hired less than 100 refugees despite the arrival of more than a million into the country last year.

Mrs Merkel is currently fighting for her political career after her open-door policy provoked a humiliating political backlash in regional elections two weeks ago.

She summoned the bosses of Germany’s biggest companies to Berlin to explain their lack of action as she tried to deflect blame onto them.

A survey by Reuters of the 30 companies in Germany’s DAX stock market index found just 63 refugee hires in total.

Of those 63 hires, 50 are employed by Deutsche Post DHL, who have been praised for their “pragmatic approach” after employing refugees to sort and deliver letters and parcels.

But during yesterday’s meeting, businesses pointed to the uncertainty about the migrants’ permission to stay in the country.

They claimed that refugees lacked German-language skills and proof of qualifications.

A spokesman for the German business community said: “Given that around 80 percent of asylum seekers are not highly qualified and may not yet have a high level of German proficiency, we have primarily offered jobs that do not require technical skills or a considerable amount of interaction in German.”

A high proportion of refugees are not qualified beyond primary or secondary school level, with many unable to read or write, according to the business community leaders.

Airline and financial industries added that many asylum seekers are unable to prove their identities.

Merkel told bosses on Wednesday’s meeting that “everyone will benefit” if more refugees are integrated through the workplace.

She also pointed to special migrant job centres set up to help immigrants find jobs, housing and qualification recognition of their previous employment and education.

The desperate news comes as optimism surrounding the migrant influx vanishes.

Germany – Europe’s biggest economy – faces a growing skills shortage with a working-age population due to decrease by six million people over the next 15 years.

Many had hoped that migrants could boost economic growth and help ease the skills shortage.

Industrial group ThyssenKrupp’s Chief Executive Heinrich Hiesinger confirmed that “the employment of refugees is no solution for the skills shortage”.

Deutsche Telekom plans to take on about 75 refugees as apprentices this year but still has not made a permanent hire yet.

A spokeswoman said: “Our experience is that it takes a minimum of 18 months for a well trained refugee to go through the asylum procedure and learn German at an adequate level in order to apply for a job.”

Susanne Eikemeier from the German Federal Agency for Employment said: “Many refugees need money quickly to send it back to their relatives in their home country or pay their bills and they do not see the advantages of an apprenticeship that starts with less pay.

“We try to convince them that this would be better in the long run and we try to figure out what skills they actually have.

“The problem is that a mechanic from Afghanistan may repair cars, but he never went to a professional school and got a certificate.”

The employment figures emerged as anti-refugee Alternative für Deutschland party made considerable gains in elections following fears that Merkel’s refugee policy threatened German stability.

Syria: White Helmets Staged ‘Russian Bombing’ Scene Near Aleppo, Lapped-up by Mainstream Media

21st Century Wire — Sept 24, 2016

The propaganda trail … burnt out Red Crescent aid convoy truck. Click to enlarge

When it comes to Syria, the level of disinformation fraud from US Coalition-aligned agencies shows no sign of diminishing. Once more, the West is attempting to produce an open and shut case of  humanitarian law violation, with which to further demonize the nations of both Syria and Russia. This, in turn, will enable them to escalate hostilities on the ground in Syria and invoke the much sought after ‘No Fly Zone’ which will be used to facilitate full spectrum destablization and a NATO bombing of Syria into the oblivion of a Libya-style failed state.

Last Saturday saw one of the most shocking and incendiary international incidents of this NATO war against Syria – a US-led, one hour-long airstrike which massacred 70 Syrian Army soldiers and wounded 100 others near the city of Deir al-Zour. The US claimed they were targeting ISIS.  However, the US brutal attack on the Syrian Army provided cover for an ISIS advance into Syrian Army held territory.

Just 48 hours later, new reports then began to circulate through the western media about an attack on a UN-sponsored Aid Convoy.  It is alleged that 18 of the 31 reported trucks were bringing “food relief ” from UN stores, said to be managed by Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), to the town of Urm al-Kubra, west of Aleppo.  This is an area controlled by one terrorist group, US backed Nour al-din al-Zenki and surrounded by US/NATO supported Al Nusra Front.

The UN and international groups were immediately up in arms: “Yesterday’s attack is a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and it is unacceptable,” Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said in a statement. “Failing to protect humanitarian workers and structures might have serious repercussions on ongoing humanitarian work in the country, hence depriving millions of people of aid essential to their survival.”

The only problem is: the NATO backed terrorists occupying areas such as East Aleppo have never recognized international humanitarian law. That lawlessness applies universally across the spectrum of terrorist entities, including Nusra Front, ISIS and the myriad of US/NATO funded and armed terrorist brigades without exception.

Naturally, the US immediately labeled the attack, “a bombing” and proceeded to accuse both Russia and Syria’s Airforce. The US claimed it had reached a “preliminary conclusion” that indicates two Russian Su-24 jets were responsible, although unnamed ‘intelligence sources‘ have told Pentagon media operative Barbara Star at CNN and other media outlets, that their “intelligence” is classified and so they can’t actually show it to anyone.

Q: would countries like the US and UK lie and fabricate intelligence or evidence , in order to accelerate a case for escalating military intervention? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. They’ve done it before, and they most certainly will go with what works in terms of advancing their geopolitical agenda. In the words of Donald Rumsfeld, this is one of those “known knowns.”

Unfortunately, the evidence doesn’t support US claims that a combined Russian/Syrian airstrike hit this Aid Convoy.  The evidence points more towards a ground attack, one most likely carried out by Nusra Front terrorists, with the aftermath filmed and media-managed as a false flag attack by the western-backed pseudo NGO the ‘White Helmets.’ Here’s why…

The UN, itself,  almost immediately began back-tracking on the initial US-backed conspiracy theory of a ‘Russian airstrike.’ Regardless of this obviously questionable and uninvestigated conjecture,  John Kerry and the west doubled-down on their initial, knee-jerk accusation fingering Russia and Syria.

bc-eliot-600x600A website called Bellingcat, run by Eliot Higgins (photo, left), immediate produced a report entitled, “Confirmed : Russian Bomb Remains Recovered from Syrian Red Crescent Aid Convoy Attack”. This was meant to implicate Russia in the said airstrike, or “bombing” incident. ‘Bellingcat’ claims to be an independent ‘open source‘ intelligence website run “by and for citizen investigative journalists“, but in reality, it exists in order to support the narratives that serve NATO, and more specifically – the British Foreign Office or the US State Dept narratives. Producing flimsy and unsubstantiated evidence to support accusations against Russia, especially with regards to the Ukraine and the MH17 event, and now with Syria – seems to be Belingcat’s primary function.

One clear indicator that Bellingcat is probably working on behalf of the British Foreign Office is that Eliot Higgins has a direct line of communication with the Foreign Office construct, embedded exclusively in and alongside Nusra Front & ISIS terrorist forces in Syria, none other than the White Helmets. This connection was openly admitted by Bellingcat:

“Since the post was published the Bellingcat team has been in touch with the Syrian Civil Defence unit closest to the attacked site, who recovered and photographed two pieces of debris, including the object featured above.”

It’s worth noting here that the ‘White Helmets’ plagiarized the “Syria Civil Defence” name,  after stealing ambulances and fire engines, kidnapping and even murdering real rescue volunteer workers, according to members of the REAL Syria Civil Defense shortly after this western creation was launched in 2013 by high ranking British and NATO military intelligence operative James Le Mesurier:

“They came in and they drove us out of our homes and they came to the Syria Civil Defence yard and they killed some of my comrades, they kidnapped others.  They wanted to force me to work with them.  I escaped at night.  I was forced to leave my teenage sons behind. They burned my house to the ground and they put my name on all the terrorist checkpoints so if I go back, they will kill me.” ~ ‘Khaled’ (REAL Syria Civil Defense survivor, recounting 2012 terrorist takeover, Aleppo)

Note also that the ‘White Helmets’ are drawing finance of at least $60 million primarily from NATO members states, including at $23 million from US AID (US State Dept), $25 million (£19.7 million) from British Foreign Office, $4.5 million (€4 million) Netherlands, and other funding directly from the EU supposedly for ‘assistance and training,’. Initial investigations into the extent of the EU funding and equipping of this deceitfully self-proclaimed “independent first-responder” is still ongoing but has already demonstrated that the EU is also heavily  invested in this fifth column, terrorist support ‘NGO.’

It was announced, just today, that the German Foreign Office is officially funding the White Helmets with $7.86 million (7 million Euros). Also, the recent awarding of the “Alternative Nobel Peace Prize to the White Helmets seems to be another conveniently-timed PR device designed to further legitimize additional public funding for what can rightly be described as a terrorist-linked criminal entity.

This funding is concealed behind the generic heading of  “Emergency Health and Relief Support to the Population Affected by the Crisis in Syria”, through the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG-ECHO), formerly known as the European Community Humanitarian Aid Office.

This latest media stunt essentially amounts to heavily politicized ‘gotcha’ blogging by Bellingcat. In this instance it appears that Bellingcat is attempting to amplify a fraudulent, and poorly staged “Russian bombing” of a “UN supply warehouse” supposedly run by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent in the ‘rebel’ terrorist-held town of Urm al-Kubra.

Here, Bellingcat’s director, Higgins posts a colourful array of images, diagrams and “proof” of a Russian bomb landing:

The only problem with Higgins’ elaborate “open source” trove is that he is much more likely to be analysing a staged photo-op, a set-dressing job courtesy of the White Helmets media team. Put simply, the narrative that’s been contrived by Belingcat and the White Helmets is an impossibility, based on image scenes provided by the White Helmets.

Here we see the primary photo of the alleged “Russian bombing” scene:

alleged-russian-bombing

Alleged scene of a Russian OFAB 250-270 high explosive fragmentation bomb (Source: Twitter)

According to independent analyst, Petri Krohn:

“This really looks like something considerably smaller, mortar shell sized, did explode there, and this fin is thrown into the crater, and all converted into this photo-op scene.”

“I don’t think anything exploded here, just hit the ground with force to make that crater, or it was already there. The shredding of the boxes to me suggests shrapnel, small, anti-personnel fletchettes.”

Krohn outlines a more likely sequence of events, and suggests the following possible scenario:

“Three things happened:

1) In August or July a small rocket or bomb came through the roof and left the burn marks seen on the walls.

2) On September 19 boxes of medical aid from the SARC convoy were placed next to the old crater, right under the hole in the roof. A small explosive was detonated in the old crater.

3) A OFAB-250 tail section was placed in the crater by White Helmets and partly covered with some boxes.

Photographs were taken, proving, ‘ASSAD KILLED US! PUTIN KILLED US!’

Give al-Nusra a No-Fly Zone now!”

“Bellingcat obtained its photos directly from the White Helmets that show that the object is not a dud OFAB-250, as previously assumed, but a crushed OFAB-250 tail section from a bomb that exploded somewhere else.”

The idea of the damage having been done prior to the alleged Russian/Syrian airstrike is more than plausible, as Urm al Kubra is a Nour al Din Zenki held area, an island in amongst Nusra Front held areas. 21WIRE has also learned that heavy inter-gang warfare had been going on since the 17th of September according to multiple sources on the ground in Syria.

The following tweet also further demonstrates the invalidity of the White Helmet reports. Indeed, how could the “witness” know for certain that it was Russian and Syrian planes, at night and in the dark, and in the midst of a supposed strike? Equally, why cant we hear and jets and helicopters?

21WIRE contributor Vanessa Beeley recently returned from Aleppo , and told us that the, “sounds of the Russian jets are deafening.”  Therefore, if this had been an extended air-strike conducted by both Russian and Syrian jets [and helicopters according to initial reports of ‘barrel bombs‘] they should have been clearly audible in this video of the said “attack”:

The ground conflict in Syria is being perpetuated by western terrorist brigades under a variety of names , but perhaps the greatest damage to  Syria and the Syrian people has been inflicted upon them by the propaganda merchants, a compliant western media, ‘humanitarian’ NGOs, US/NATO think-tanks, and all manner of NATO-biased, ‘Leftist’ peace activists or anti-war protesters in the west calling for another ‘war to end a war’ – when this present war was started by their  own governments who are still determined to escalate this war against Syria to effect their “regime change” policy targets.

This latest media incident once more demonstrates the size and power of the apparatus driving this propaganda – with a full compliment of ancillary crisis actors and extras.

From the reactions of Kerry and the West, it is hard not to conclude that we are being propelled closer to the abyss of a dangerous geopolitical standoff, or a World War.

Propaganda spin cycle: ‘Syrian Observatory for Human Rights’ is funded by US and UK governments

Beau Christensen — Sott.net Sept 23, 2016

For 5 years, bloody mayhem has been going on in Syria, and in all that time only independent media has picked up on the really obvious flaw in the official narrative about the “Syrian civil war” …

Officially, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) is a UK-based organization providing data to the Western press about troop movements, government policy and public sentiment in Syria. The Western press then reprints the information they are given – no questions asked:

Media carry SOHR reports. Click to enlarge

Media carry SOHR reports. Click to enlarge

What Western media editors conceal from the public however, is that the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is neither based in Syria nor is it an observer of what actually goes on there. It is essentially one man – Abdul Rahman, aka Rami Abdulrahman, aka Osama Suleiman – a three-term convicted criminal in Syria, based out of a small house in Coventry, England, and his ‘team of four activists in Syria’.

Apparently all it takes to inform the entire Western media about everything that is happening on the ground in Syria is four people. Four people could, theoretically, provide reasonably objective reports, but only if they were open to receiving information from many sources, including ones supportive of the Syrian government. They might even be able to produce – using objective discernment – reliable statistics of casualties, refugees and terrorists/rebels. But SOHR has consistently reported the ‘civil war’ from only the perspective of the so-called ‘rebels’, discounting Syrian government reports out of hand, as well as reports from civilians that reveal rebels’ crimes.

That fact alone makes SOHR about as reliable a source of information on the Syrian conflict as the US State Department and the British Foreign Office, who have a vested interest in spinning the war to produce one end: the death or removal of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

Rahman, by his own admission, is a member of the ‘Syrian opposition’ and seeks the ouster of Al Assad, so that clearly removes any semblance of objectivity in his ‘reporting’.

But there’s more. Rahman, and the SOHR that he runs, has long ago been exposed as a Western propaganda front. As Tony Cartalucci writes in his expose:

“One could not fathom a more unreliable, compromised, biased source of information, yet for the past two years, his “Observatory” has served as the sole source of information for the endless torrent of propaganda emanating from the Western media. Perhaps worst of all, is that the United Nations uses this compromised, absurdly overt source of propaganda as the basis for its various reports.”

This man is as far from a ‘human rights activist’ as anyone can be. His funding comes from the European Union and “an unnamed European state,” most likely the UK as he has direct access to former Foreign Minister William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London and shares Rahman’s enthusiasm for removing Assad from power. The NYT in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago because of his anti-government activities:

“When two associates were arrested in 2000, he fled the country, paying a human trafficker to smuggle him into England. The government resettled him in Coventry, where he decided he liked the slow pace.”

“Hold the line, Jafar, I’ve got MI6 on another call…” ‘Rami Abdulrahman’, one-man lie factory. Click to enlarge

Et voila! What was once a criminal with subversive tendencies is now a ‘human rights activist’ (but really a British intelligence asset). Does anyone really think that any of these organizations would pay a convicted criminal to be anything other than their mouthpiece for seeding the lies printed in Western media? As Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley noted last year, figures provided by the SOHR are routinely cited by Western media to generate public support for airstrikes and regime change in Syria.

So who in the Western media uses such a biased propaganda source? It would be easier to provide a list of who doesn’t. CNN, Reuters, Associated Press, BBC, Al-Jazeera, Huffington Post, Fox and Vice… just to name a few. These presstitute organizations apparently don’t care that they’re taking the word of someone who has a political interest in the outcome and who is funded toward that end by the British government. Are there any investigative journalists left in mainstream media? Those with two firing neurons are few and far between these days…

Western intelligence agencies set up the armed opposition/terrorist proxy forces in Syria, so they would obviously want to control the media narrative about what happens there. Rahman does his part by vacuuming up information reported by those same proxy forces. This information is then given out to the Western media with SOHR as source. The whole operation is so patently shady, it should scream ‘spooks’ to any real journalist. And to be honest, Western journalist really should know better.

What’s that phrase that George Dubya Bush mangled: ‘fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me’. Mr. SOHR is basically a less sophisticated Syrian war version of the Iraq war’s ‘Curveball’ or Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi (for those interested in his real name). Alwan was the guy that the US government used to back up their ‘Saddam has WMDs’ claim that justified the invasion and 10 year occupation of Iraq, and the murder of 1.5 million Iraqi citizens. To his friends, Alwan was a congenital liar who fled Iraq in 1999 when he was caught trying to embezzle state funds. When he fled to Germany in 1999, and told German intelligence that he graduated top of his chemical engineering class at Baghdad University and worked on a team that built mobile labs to produce WMDs, he became ‘curveball’.

When this information was passed on to US intelligence, they conveniently ignored the evidence that he was a congenital liar and embezzler who placed last in his university class and drove a taxi for a living before fleeing to Germany, and decided that everything he was saying about Iraqi WMDs was true. To further prove his credentials, ‘curveball’ identified a a particular Iraqi facility as a “docking station for mobile labs”. When UN weapons inspectors visited the site on February 9, 2003, they found a warehouse used for seed processing.

So with this information, then Sec. of State Colin Powell decided to do the right thing, and ran to the UN and told them all about ‘curveball’ and his damning ‘evidence’ of Iraqi WMDs. Why? Because US politicians had long before decided that they were going to invade and destroy Iraq and loot its resources. They were, as the saying goes, ‘fixing the facts around a war policy’ by using the bogus claims of known liars to justify their war. This is precisely what Mr. SOHR is doing for the US government today, and still, the media sucks it up and regurgitates it for the general public.

So this is what our media has become, a gaggle of morons brainlessly repeating lies vomited up by our psychopathic reality-creators, thereby manipulating public perception of world events and making sure we all see the world the way they want us to see it, and not how it really is. One thing is certain: if you believe what Rahman and the SOHR is telling you about what’s happening in Syria, you are believing in lies.

Yawn…Jews Are Furious Once Again

The Sunday Express reports: “Jewish community furiousat re-election of ‘antisemitic’ Jeremy Corbyn”
Jewish campaigners have reacted with fury to the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, warning that with the left-winger in charge, the Labour Party is “no longer a safe place for British Jews”. Maybe, but also maybe it is time to accept that Jews don’t feel safe anywhere –  not in France, not in Belgium, not in Monroe, NY, not even in Israel despite the IDF being one of the strongest armies in the world. But beware. If Jews do not feel safe anywhere, then makingthe Labour party into a Jewish safe haven may well be considered an anti-Jewish act.
It’s fair to say that Jews have worked hard to make the Labour party and Corbyn supporters, hostile to their interests and their political-lobbying culture.  Yet, despite the intensive Jewish campaign against Jeremy Corbyn, the veteran Left leader again won the mandate by a landslide  (62% of the votes). But in a statement released minutes after the result of leadership contest was announced, Gideon Falter, chairman of the Campaign Against Antisemitism, blasted: “Though we are an apolitical organisation …the Labour Party is no longer a safe place for British Jews.”
We also learn that Parry Mitchell, a senior Jewish Labour peer has quit the Labour party today over Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘lukewarm’ approach to anti-Semitism. The Jewish peer struggles to cope with the democratic process. “Jeremy has no leadership qualities whatsoever – his little group like him and they think he’s the Messiah, but he will never become the leader and prime minister of this country,” Lord Mitchell told BBC One’s Sunday Politics.
At least the Jewish peer was honest enough to admit that it is his tribal interests that motivates him. “I’m Jewish and I’m very strongly Jewish… he(Corbyn) surrounds himself with a coterie of people who hold violent, violent anti-Israel views, and allied with it they are very hostile to Jews so, in my view, they’re pretty bad guys.” So perhaps now’s the time for the Jewish Labour peer to accept that Israeli brutality is just not consistent with Labour values. After all, is it not  only natural for left-leaning people to advocate left ideas even if this only happens rarely?
The Jewish campaign against Corbyn was, as ever, well orchestrated and well-funded. In the last few months we have been following Jewish Labour donor Michael Foster, who thought that £400,000 would be about enough to buy the Labour party, and we learned this week that a new anti-Corbyn group is receiving funding from Tony Blair’s former spin doctor – who now runs Peter Mandelson’s consultancy firm, Electoral Commission. The Independent reported this week that Benjamin Wegg-Prosser, the managing partner at Peter Mandelson’s Global Counsel, a company that helps businesses “trying to influence policy,” has was also invested in the destruction of Corbyn’s Labour. On 27 June, Wegg-Prosser loaned Labour Tomorrow Ltd £10,000 – at the same time as MPs resigned en masse from the shadow cabinet in the so-called “coup”.
But British Jews shouldn’t panic yet. Labour’s London Mayor Sadiq Khan has just been nominated for the Annual Shabbos Goy Award when he vowed to spearhead a drive to stop the party being anti-Semitic. Writing for the Holocaust Educational Trust today,  Khan says: “Whenever anti-semitism rears its ugly head, I’ll be the first to call it out, condemn it and then work to stamp it out.”
I’ve a hunch Sadiq Khan knows exactly where to find the shekels for his next campaign.

Retired Swedish Police Chief Says Malmo Crime Skyrocketing Due To Uncontrolled Immigration

Introduction — Sept 25, 2016

Swedish diplomats in Budapest argued that recent Hungarian claims that there were no-go zones in Sweden was ‘false information.
“It is important to be clear: such zones, however they are labelled or defined, do not exist in Sweden”, said the Deputy Head of the Swedish Embassy in Hungary, Anna Boda.
However, that is not how a recently retired police chief from Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city sees it. Ed.

Retired Swedish Police Chief Says Malmo Crime Skyrocketing Due To Uncontrolled Immigration, No Go Zones

Oliver JJ Lane — breibart.com Sept 18, 2016

Chief Superintendent Torsten Elofsson retired from police work in 2014 after 42 years on the Malmo police force, but he retains a key interest in the security of the city. He agreed to give Breitbart London his perspective on crime in Sweden’s most notorious city over a coffee in it’s historic town centre.

Recalling his early days on the force, Elofsson said the nature and volume of crime in Malmo had changed significantly, going from the organised crime perpetrated by biker gangs decades ago to the migrant crime boom of modern Sweden. Despite the population of Malmo growing by a 50 per cent in 20 years, the amount of crimes committed has increased out of all proportion – and the number of officers available to police the streets has halved.

The reasons for this are complex, Elofsson explains. As Malmo becomes a less easy place to police, officers with any experience request to transfer elsewhere, leaving the force with mainly young, rookie cops. These officers are at the typical time of life to get married and have children, and generous Swedish child care leave laws can take professionals, both male and female, away from their jobs for months at a time. This “negative circle”, as Elofsson calls it, combined with again generous annual leave allowance can render much of Malmo with no police officers at all over the summer, as Breitbart London discovered when it called on an empty police station this week.

It is a problem the force acknowledges – and admits it is powerless to prevent. Sweden has started to redeploy officers from other cities to cover the shortfall, but this is expensive as the officers are housed in quality hotels and regularly travel home to see their families.

Violent crime is a problem in Malmo now unlike any time in the past, explains former director of criminal intelligence and INTERPOL cop Elofsson: “Sweden became a member of the European Union in 1995 and opened our borders.

Malmo Police

Torsten Elofsson

  “We are part of the Schengen treaty, so you have that freedom of movement which has also brought criminality here… Gun and drug related crime has definitely increased. Until recently the possession of guns by criminals was very rare – now finding people with firearms is a daily occurrence here… most of the guns we seize are used in criminal activity, are held illegally, and are smuggled into Sweden.

“Slovakia is very interesting right now – it is very easy to buy deactivated guns there but they are converted back when they are imported here”.

“Malmo is infamous for explosions. Yet thankfully nobody has been killed by the explosions yet – some of them are just used to frighten people. We had one case in Rosengard where a group were given a court order to leave an apartment because they were a disturbance for the neighbours. And then suddenly hand grenades and explosions outside the office of the real estate company.

Elofsson explained trust was a major part of the problem – that migrant communities don’t trust the police, and native Swedes were losing trust in the government.

“You have people getting shot here, and when they get to hospital they refuse to give any details”.

While immigrants often came from countries where they had very bad experiences with corrupt police and didn’t understand this wasn’t the case in the developed world, the collapse in trust for the Swedish establishment is quite different. He says this change is a large part of the cause of the rise in support for the Sweden Democrats.

“The latest poll shows the Sweden Democrats at 27 per cent. This is a sort of explanation of what is going on – the politicians, the media sends out a message that everything is safe and secure, you don’t have to worry. But people act according to their own experience – they see things, they experience things, they talk to their neighbours. And they feel the picture being presented in the media is not entirely accurate.

“Many people think the media and the politicians have merged together to make people believe that it is safe and sound to live here, and there are no problems. The media says immigration is always a positive thing because we have an ageing population and we need a young workforce to come from other countries. People don’t buy that picture 100 per cent”.

“Living here you can see a lot of the crimes are committed by people originating abroad. Look at the unemployment here – you have 15 per cent in Malmo, which is twice the rest of Sweden”.

“Of the number of people arrested and dragged into police stations, the majority are of foreign origin to be honest. There is an over-representation of violent crimes committed by people from other countries”.

“But you can’t fool people. And that’s why the Sweden Democrats are rising. It was 25 per cent last week, now it is 27. There is a debate happening, you see all of the refugees coming… but we don’t have apartments, housing for them. How do we provide schooling for them? And then you see the costs. There is a feeling we can’t afford an influx of immigrants”.

Torsten is a member of the Christian Democrats, one of the smallest, and most right-wing parties in Swedish politics. Although stopping short of the hard-line views of the Sweden Democrats on matters of immigration, the Christian Democrats are much more right-wing on economic matters. Explaining that he thinks Sweden should still take genuine refugees, their stays should be limited to the duration of the wars they have fled, and should be sent back to rebuild their own countries when possible.

He also rejects the notion as articulated by senior Sweden Democrat member of parliament Kent Ekeroth that Malmo is a “lost city”, beyond saving. While acknowledging that the city is deeply divided, he says there is hope: “On the west side, people are high income, have very stable family situations… I don’t think Malmo is a lost city. There are different sides to the city.

“IBM are setting up an office here – they see the young population of people who speak many languages as an advantage, and see potential because the work force is what they are looking for… if you look at the price of houses, they are rising here. Not as fast as Stockholm or Gothenburg, but it is a positive trend.

“I live in Malmo and I love this city. But of course it has changed – now we have the bridge from Copenhagen, this is a border town. Most of the drugs going to the rest of Scandinavia comes through here – this is a key route for smuggling drugs, weapons, people, and so on.

“The bridge brought good to the city, but from a police perspective it has brought more crime. Now since we are in the Schengen area we’re not allowed to have border controls, which makes it difficult to supervise what is happening”.

Elofsson confirms the disputed ‘no-go-zones’ in Swedish cities are real, and outlines the precautions emergency services have to taken when they want to enter: “We have a number of no-go-zones in Sweden and they are expanding… police can go to these places, but you have to take precautions.

“Years ago you could go with two officers, no problem. Now you have to send four officers and two cars – if the fire brigade want to go, they have to take a police escort. They throw stones and try to stop the fireman from putting out fires.

“They sabotage the police cars. You can’t leave them unguarded – when you come back to it you find the windows smashed and the tyres deflated. It isn’t quite a no-go zone, but we have had to develop special routines to go there”.

All Sweden’s local police forces were absorbed into a national, unified body on the first of January this year, a change Elofsson has campaigned against, arguing that giving responsibility for policing to the mayor would increase accountability. He also has views on the border with Europe, remarking that right now “control is right on the edge right now”.

“I think it could be a good idea to make a temporary restriction on the border to get the situation under control”.

Whether the border is closed or not, there is still a massive job ahead of Swedish society, Elofsson argues, to prevent the radicalisation of newcomers. As we go our separate ways, he articulates his concern for the future of Sweden:

“We have a lot of children coming to Sweden alone. Most of them are actually teenagers, between 15 and 18, and that is worrying. If we can’t get them integrated into Swedish society, that is a huge recruitment base for criminal gangs and ISIS [The Islamic State]. I am concerned with the lack of integration, we have not succeeded to well at this”.

Gun attack in Malmo leaves ‘multiple casualties’ as police seal off neighbourhood in south of Swedish city

Sam Adams — Daily Mirror Sept 25, 2016

A gun attack in Malmo has left ‘multiple injuries’ as police seal off an area in the south of the Swedish city.

The shooting occurred just before 7pm local time this evening and police have an ongoing operation in the area.

A witness to the incident said there were around twenty shots fired by people in an Audi which then drove off at high speed.

Shell casings were found by officers at the scene.

Meanwhile terror fears have also been raised in Malmo after an explosion rocked the outskirts of the city.

The blast was hear in the just before 9pm local time at Heleneholm.

Bomb disposal officers and other security personnel have flooded the area following the blast.

Police say the perpetrators in the gun attack may have left the scene on a moped.

Meanwhile, another witness said that the shots were fired from a car.

Witnesses have reported that shots were fired in bursts of three rounds, suggesting that it is automatic weapon used in the shooting, Sweden’s Express newspaper reports.

Police spokesman Ewa-Gun Westford said: We have an ongoing operation in the area and have a confirmed shootings with more than one injured.

“More we do not know because we are in the midst of it.

“Because it happened during a football derby between Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF in town, there are many policemen on duty in Malmo tonight.”

Britain accuses Putin of ‘war crimes’ in Syria at bitter UN meeting

Introduction — Sept 25, 2016

Western diplomats castigated Russia for its actions in Syria on Sunday, accusing it of “war crimes” as the U.S. openly condemned Russia at the UN as “an international pariah”.
Britain and France both condemned Russia while the U.S. UN Ambassador Samantha Power described Russia’s actions in Syria as barbarism.
All of which might be justified were it not for the fact that the West and its allies in Turkey, Israel and the gulf states helped create the Syrian conflict in the first place. In an effort to oust Syrian President Assad they helped arm, finance and support the various militant groups fighting to remove President Assad.
Many if not the majority of those fighting against Assad are not even Syrian but a mix Sunni militants from various countries who, unwittingly perhaps, serve as the West’s proxies in the conflict. In the process they’ve committed massacres, war crimes and innumerable beheadings that seem calculated to force those they’ve conquered to submit through fear.
They are terrorists in every sense of the word. Yet now that they are getting hammered in Aleppo the West is whining about Russian “war crimes”. Why? Why are the West’s protests over Russia’s actions in Syria as loud, if not louder, than its supposed protestations over earlier atrocities by Sunni militants?
Is the West trying to buy time for its proxies so they can avoid total annihilation by Russia?
If the West is hoping to shame Russia at the U.N. we don’t think that it’s going to work. Putin knows that Sunni militants and “Syrian rebels” are joined at the hip, and that both have been backed by the West to oust Syrian President Assad.
The Russian president also knows that after Syria and Iran Russia is the ultimate objective and as a result we don’t think that he’s going to back down on this. Ed.

Britain accuses Putin of ‘war crimes’ in Syria at bitter UN meeting

Raf Sanchez — Telegraph.co.uk Sept 25, 2016

Britain has accused Russia of committing “war crimes” in Syria as world powers rounded on Moscow in one of the most bitter meetings of the UN Security Council in recent memory.

As Russian jets took part in what rebels called the “scorched earth bombing” of Aleppo, Western powers charged Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, with deliberately undermining peace talks and flouting its historic responsibilities to the United Nations.

The almost complete rupture of relations between Russia and the Western powers played out in angry scenes at the UN’s New York headquarters, where Britain, France and the US openly condemned Russia as “an international pariah”.

The exchanges marked the effective collapse of the US-led Syria peace process that had tried to get to Russia to use its influence in Syria to help bring an end to the six-year war that has now claimed around 400,000 lives.

With a US-backed no-fly zone and other military intervention ruled out by President Obama, Britain, France and the US launched the diplomatic onslaught in an attempt to shame Russia into helping to end the suffering.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General, urged the powers to work to “end the nightmare” singling out Russia’s use of bunker-busting bombs to hit schools and hospitals operating in basements.

“How much longer will all those with influence allow such cruelty to continue?” Mr Ban said.

Earlier, Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said Russia may have committed war crimes by bombing a UN aid convoy last week and accused President Putin of not only “handing the revolver” to the Assad regime, but also helping to pull the trigger.

In a display of disgust towards the Assad regime, Matthew Rycroft, the British ambassador to the UN, walked out of a specially convened Security Council meeting when the Syrian ambassador rose to speak.

“Aleppo’s inhabitants… are now facing an unprecedented, unrelenting onslaught of cruelty,” he said.

“In short, it is difficult to deny that Russia is partnering with the Syrian regime to carry out war crimes.”

Mr Rycroft also hinted that Western powers must now consider coercive measures to force Russia to back away.

“We must now do more than demand or urge. We must now decide what we can do to enforce end to bombardment,” he said, without providing details.

The West could now consider economic sanctions or a diplomatic move against Russia to try to force it to change course.

Russia denied the Western charges and accused Western-backed rebel groups of causing the breakdown of the ceasefire. Samantha Power, the US ambassador to the UN, said Russian forces were guilty of “barbarism” for using bunker-busting bombs.

“Russia would have this Council live in upside-down land where bombing first responders, cutting off humanitarian aid and supporting a murderous regime is billed as counterterrorism,” she said.

“What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counterterrorism; it is barbarism.”

Homeless Man Thinks Charity Begins at Home

Homeless man (not ‘Jon’). Click to enlarge

“Jon,” a Canadian who lived in his car for a year, recounts how the experience hardened him. He wonders why Canada imports refugees and ignores its own homeless, especially if they are white men.

by “Jon” — (henrymakow.com)

What bothered me more than living in the car was the absolute lack of concern, compassion, care from society. The people who knew I lived in a car did not invite me for a meal..no Christmas or thanksgiving dinner or a bed..shower. No one came by with extra blankets and goods, or just to sit and talk.
As a man… born and raised in Canada… I was worthless. No Christian, no religious person cared.
The government has an unlimited number of programs for homeless women…and homeless women with children…and refugees, but few for white men.
One’s attitude changes after a year. There is an emotional draining that would equal a rusty bucket trying to hold water. And when the rust sets in, it keeps growing. The hole cannot be patched.
People who wish to support refugees have not been homeless. If they had been, they would know we need to help our neighbours first. The Canadian resources are ours collectively. The homeless want their share.
I tell young people to not be nice, to look after themselves first, to understand that their competition is now not only other men, but women who get more government help, and immigrants.
Those wishing to return to the “good old days” are never going to see that time again. I hope they have good memories and lots of photos.

The Deep State’s Candidate?

Linh Dinh — The Unz Review Sept 24, 2016

Trump

First of, what is meant by “deep state”?

According to ex-CIA Philip Giraldi, “Every country has a deep state of some kind even if it goes by another name. ‘The Establishment’ or ‘old boys’ network’ was widely recognized in twentieth century Britain. ‘Establishment’ has often also been used in the United States, describing a community of shared values and interests that has evolved post-Second World War from the Washington-New York axis of senior government officials and financial services executives. They together constitute a group that claims to know what is ‘best’ for the country and act accordingly, no matter who sits in the White House.

I would say that this deep state, this establishment, is only looking out for its own best interests, not the country’s, for its decisions are often the very worst for the rest of us. I totally agree, though, that this deep state will do what it wants “no matter who sits in the White House.” The deep state controls our government, banks and media. It shapes our world view, brainwashes us. The deep state is our country’s true ruler, with the president just a figure head.

The deep state defines our world. Branding it “the American hologram,” Joe Bageant memorably encapsulates, “This great loom of media images, and images of images, is so many layers deep that it has replaced reality. No one can remember the original imprint. If there was one. The hologram is a hermetic snow globe, a self-referential circuitry of images, and a Möbius loop from which there is no logical escape. Logic has zilch to do with what is going on. The smallest part holographically recapitulates the whole, and vice versa. No thinking required, we just cycle and recycle through an aural dimension. Not all that bad, I guess, if it were not generated by forces out to fuck every last pair of eyeballs and mind plugged into it.”

Though the US has endured a decades-long epidemic of black-on-white crimes, the deep state has convinced the world that American blacks are merely passive victims of white racism. Each white on black crime is magnified, while all black misbehaviors are suppressed. When it comes to crime news, Americans have learnt to decipher “teen” or “youth” as “black.” “Wisconsin Teens Drugged, Gang Raped 15-year-old girl and Posted Video of Assault on Facebook.” “Teen Gang Attacks Girls in Crowded DC Metro Station.”

Though millions of Muslims have been systematically killed, maimed or made homeless by the US/Israel axis, Muslims are relentless depicted as crazed killers or out-of-control rapists. In February, there was a report of 51 Middle Eastern sexual molesters being beaten up in Murmansk, Russia. After checking the Russian press, Jonathan Revusky emailed me, “Think about what was being claimed. 51 refugees getting their asses kicked by… well… presumably at least as many Russians, so 100+ people in a massive brawl, right? This is the claim, and it’s getting echoed in the echo chamber and the local cops, who never heard of any such thing happening, they go to the place, look at the CCTV footage, interview people and AFFIRM/ATTEST/CERTIFY that this shit never happened […] The biggest single take-away from all of this sort of thing is that there is a massive propaganda effort underway to vilify Muslims. There really are these people who are paid, probably six-figure salaries, to just sit around and make up calumnies. […] Not only do these people (we know who they are, the Zio bastards basically) have probably millions of dollars to spread this stuff, but they also have a pretty good understanding of mass psychology, how to propagate myths, like urban legends.”

Ron Unz, “We naively tend to assume that our media accurately reflects the events of our world and its history, but instead what we all too often see are only the tremendously distorted images of a circus fun-house mirror, with small items sometimes transformed into large ones, and large ones into small. The contours of historical reality may be warped into almost unrecognizable shapes, with some important elements completely disappearing from the record and others appearing out of nowhere.”

Mind-fucked, most Americans can’t even see that an American president’s only task is to disguise the deep state’s intentions. Chosen by the deep state to explain away its crimes, our president’s pronouncements are nearly always contradicted by the deep state’s actions. While the president talks of peace, democracy, racial harmony, prosperity for Main Street and going after banksters, etc., the deep state wages endless war, stages meaningless elections, stokes racial hatred, bankrupts nearly all Americans and enables massive Wall Street crimes, etc.

Only the infantile will imagine the president as any kind of savior or, even more hilariously, anti-establishment. Since the deep state won’t even tolerate a renegade reporter at, say, the San Jose Mercury News, how can you expect a deep state’s enemy to land in the White House?! It cannot happen.

A presidential candidate will promise to fix all that’s wrong with our government, and this stance, this appearance, is actually very useful for the deep state, for it gives Americans hope. Promising everything, Obama delivered nothing. So who do you think is being primed by the deep state to be our next false savior?

Who benefits from false flag terrorist attacks blamed on Muslims? Who gains when blacks riot? Why is the Democratic Party propping up a deeply-despised and terminally ill war criminal? More personable Bernie Sanders was nixed by the deep state since it had another jester in mind.

The first presidential debate is Monday. Under stress, Hillary’s eyes will dart in separate directions. Coughing nonstop for 90 minutes, her highness will hack up a gazillion unsecured emails. Her head will jerk spasmodically, plop onto the floor and, though decapitated, continue to gush platitudes and lies. “A Very Impressive Performance,” CNBC and CNN will announce. Come November, though, Trump will be installed because his constituency needs to be temporarily pacified. The deep state knows that white people are pissed.

This week, Trump dropped by Geno’s in my neighborhood. Though the Donald only got lunch for himself, words soon spread that he had bought a cheesesteak for everyone present. Years ago, I saw a tiny flag strung between two trees, “Obama and Oprah save the World.” Like fools, we expect salvation from the deep state’s cynical puppets.
