WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"If all bank loans were paid, no one would have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of currency or coin in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent monetary system. When one gets a complete grasp upon the picture, the tragedy and absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible -- but here it is. It (the banking system) is the most important object intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." -- Robert Hemphill, for 8 years credit manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

BEX ALERT - It's Time to Treat Doctors Without Borders as a Terrorist Organization

Doctors Without Borders has a long history of collaborating with and defending terrorists. And even being terrorists. The issue came up just last month in relation to Hamas.

Its current attacks on America and collaboration with the Taliban are completely unacceptable. Doctors Without Borders' personnel are once again lying through their teeth, denying the facts put forward by US and Afghan personnel and covering up the use of medical facilities by the Taliban Jihadists as human shields.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness!

The Nobel Peace Prize winner lectures Russia about civilian casualties, then bombs a hospital in Afghanistan, and all they can think of doing is demonizing the victims!

Afghan hospital bombing: MSF labels US airstrike a war crime as it withdraws staff

Médecins Sans Frontières has pulled its staff out of the crisis-hit Afghan city of Kunduz after a US airstrike on its hospital, labelled a war crime by the group.

MSF says 22 people were killed by the bombing, which Afghan officials now claim was in retaliation for fire from Taliban fighters hiding in the hospital. The president, Barack Obama, announced on Sunday he was launching a full investigation into the circumstances.

In a robust rejection of the allegation that Taliban fighters were sheltering in the hospital grounds, the MSF general director, Christopher Stokes, said: “Not a single member of our staff reported any fighting inside the MSF hospital compound prior to the US airstrike on Saturday morning.

“The hospital was full of MSF staff, patients and their caretakers. It is 12 MSF staff members and 10 patients, including three children, who were killed in the attack.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

VW scandal: Vehicles quarantined in NZ

Volkswagen's New Zealand division has quarantined 36 new vehicles with emissions-cheating diesel engines, but acknowledges there are likely to be hundreds more on our roads.

General manager Tom Ruddenklau says the company has halted the sale of 21 Tiguan SUVs and 15 Caddy vans, and is confident they are the only new VW vehicles in this country to have been caught up in the global scandal engulfing the German car-maker.

"Just to be on the safe side, we've isolated those from being sold until we've got a remedy - it's just something that's the responsible thing to do," he said this afternoon.

But he disclosed that there are likely to be hundreds of VW diesels of both those models and some others sold over several years in New Zealand fitted with the same four-cylinder EA 189 engine, although he was unable to identify those at this stage.

Smaller numbers of Audi and Skoda vehicles with the same engines were also likely to be affected.

One Day After Warning Russia of Civilian Casualties, the U.S. Bombs a Hospital in Afghanistan

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: “we call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian oppo[sition and] civilians.” Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies – including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UK – warning Russia that civilian casualties “will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.”

Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least 9 of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported The New York Times.

Twenty, thirty years ago none of these individuals would have faced the grave legal problems they now confront. But thirty years ago, the legal system in the US was not yet in free fall.

Pediatrician Admits ADHD is ‘Made Up,’ Prescribes Meds Anyway

With the guise of improving academic achievement, doctors like Dr. Michael Anderson are prescribing drugs like Adderall to children with self-admitted, ‘made-up’ ADHD diagnoses.

Adderall is a dangerous stimulant, but Dr. Anderson, a pediatrician for many poor families in Cherokee County, north of Atlanta, prescribes Adderall whether his patients have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or not when he hears they are suffering in school. He admits the disorder is ‘made up’ and prescribes the drugs anyhow, but usually only to children in low income schools with the explanation that they need to be drugged to keep up with children who perform better academically.

In a New York Times article, Anderson says:

“I don’t have a whole lot of choice. We’ve decided as a society that it’s too expensive to modify the kid’s environment. So we have to modify the kid.”

No wonder the Secret Service is so screwed up. They had to spend so much time waiting on insane aristocrats. The Beefeaters probably have it a lot easier dealing with an actual queen than our bunch does dealing with Hillary Clinton.

Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.”

I suspect there were a lot of those bumps when Hillary was in the car.

Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” says former FBI agent Coy Copeland. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”

One former Secret Service agent states, “If Hillary was walking down a hall, you were supposed to hide behind drapes used as partitions.”

“Unspeakable”: An MSF Nurse Recounts the Attack on MSF’s Kunduz Hospital

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) nurse Lajos Zoltan Jecs was in Kunduz trauma hospital when the facility was struck by a series of aerial bombing raids in the early hours of Saturday morning. He describes his experience:

“It was absolutely terrifying.

I was sleeping in our safe room in the hospital. At around 2am, I was woken up by the sound of a big explosion nearby. At first I didn't know what was going on. Over the past week we'd heard bombings and explosions before, but always further away. This one was different, close and loud.

At first there was confusion, and dust settling. As we were trying to work out what was happening, there was more bombing.

After 20 or 30 minutes, I heard someone calling my name. It was one of the Emergency Room nurses. He staggered in with massive trauma to his arm. He was covered in blood, with wounds all over his body.

Stratfor particularly recalls that the European Union has not yet built a unique position regarding the Russian operations in Syria, and that "Washington nervous" because the United States fear that the EU will eventually bow to Moscow's position regarding Syria.

He has found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.

He has fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.

Syria Update# Air Duel between the Sukhoi Su - 30 Russian SM and Israeli F-15

Six Russian fighter jets type Multirole Sukhoi SU - 30 SM have intercepted 4 Israeli McDonnell Douglas F-15's fighter bombers attempting to infiltrate the Syrian coast.The Israeli F 15 warplanes have been flying over Syrian airspace for months and in particular the coast of Latakia, which is now the bridgehead of the Russian forces in Syria.

The Israeli jets would generally follow a fairly complex flight plan and approach Latakia from the sea

On the night of 1 October 02, 2015, six Sukhoi SU-30 Russian SM fighters took off from the Syrian Hmimim airbase in the direction of Cyprus, before changing course and intercepting the four Israeli F-15 fighters off the coast of Syria, that were flying in attack formation.

Doctors Accuse White House Of Lying To Justify "Collateral Damage" In Kabul Hospital Bombing

By way of excuse for what President Obama called "a tragic incident," (and The UN called a 'war crime') US officials have claimed that the Taliban were fighting from within the Kabul hospital (which was destroyed by a US air strike yesterday killing at least 19 including 3 children) using aid workers as "a human shield." However, this justification for the 'collateral damage' has been vehemently denied by Medecins Sans Frontier (MSF) who have issued a statement dismissing the US claims, "the gates of the hospital compound were closed all night so no one that is not staff, a patient or a caretaker was inside the hospital when the bombing happened..." but, the US strike has done one thing, as one local health official concluded, "this city is no longer for the living."

FLASHBACK: British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria

On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying:

“More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,” engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS.

Maybe covert US special forces and CIA elements are involved the same way. During Obama’s war on Libya, Britain deployed hundreds of Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) paratroopers – drawn from SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) personnel.

Around 800 Royal Marines and 4,000 US counterparts were on standby to intervene on short notice if ordered.

Secret Service agents reveal Hillary Clinton is a nightmare to work with

‘GOOD morning, ma’am,” a member of the uniformed Secret Service once greeted Hillary Clinton.

“F— off,” she replied.

That exchange is one among many that active and retired Secret Service agents shared with Ronald Kessler, author of First Family Detail, a compelling look at the intrepid personnel who shield America’s presidents and their families — and those whom they guard.

Kessler writes flatteringly and critically about people in both parties. Regarding the Clintons, Kessler presents Chelsea as a model protectee who respected and appreciated her agents. He describes Bill as a difficult chief executive, but an easygoing ex-president. And Kessler exposes Hillary as an epically abusive Arctic monster.

Saudis Mull Launch Of Regional War As Russia Pounds Targets In Syria For Fourth Day

As we put it on Friday, “if Russia ends up bolstering Iran's position in Syria (by expanding Hezbollah's influence and capabilities) and if the Russian air force effectively takes control of Iraq thus allowing Iran to exert a greater influence over the government in Baghdad, the fragile balance of power that has existed in the region will be turned on its head and in the event this plays out, one should not expect Washington, Riyadh, Jerusalem, and London to simply go gentle into that good night.”

Sure enough, some experts now predict Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey will move to counter Russia militarily if Moscow continues to rack up gains for Assad. Here’s The Guardian with more:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A small memo to the House of Saud; your country's coffers are hugely drained because the price of oil having taken such a precipitous drop.

The weapons you have purchased from your "Good friend in the West, the United States", may well be expensive; but they are no match for the quality of Russian weaponry we see on display in their blitzkrieg against ISIS in Syria.

You see, the Russian military and their weapons manufacturers have a tacit agreement that when weapons are deployed in the field, they will work as advertised; this is not quite how US weapons makers in the US see things.

For example, the F-22s still have a "minor problem" asphyxiating their pilots, which has never, ever been fixed. The F-35 has numerous problems, and can be shot down by 1970s- vintage aircraft.

Crown Prince Salman, I very strongly, urgently caution you not to go down in the history of your country as the Prince who generated World War III, leaving your country devastated and destroyed as a result, because the US government and military could not protect you.

And right now, Your Highness, the US military does not have the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a successful outcome to a conventional war against Russia. That means, eventual use of nuclear weapons, if this gets out of hand.

Please, have some rational, frank discussions with your MOD, and walk away from this jingoistic, feel-good hubris, for the good of your people.

Government Chart of Gun Murders - A Complete Lie! Real Statistics from FBI. Real Truth through real charts on gun violence/murders.

I am seeing this chart about how guns have been used in murders of more people than anything else in the world in the U.S., including Terrorism.

There were NOT 33636 gun deaths in the U.S. in 2013.

The FBI has the statistics on their site for 2013.

There were an estimated 14,196 murders 2013.

That is TOTAL murders for 2013! That includes ALL forms of murder, stabbings, blunt objects, strangulation besides guns.

Guns are not the big problem that they are made out to be. The mainstream media and the government are lying about the statistics and those are OUTRIGHT Lies! If people did not just believe everything they are told and researched the information themselves then they would wake up to how they are being controlled with lies.

Does Russia's Syrian intervention signal end of United States primacy in the Middle East?

The United States and Russia are once again vying for political influence in the Middle East. Reminiscent of the Cold War days, which saw the two powers compete against one another for a strategic foothold in the region; Washington and Moscow have renewed these tensions, and reignited old passions for who is the most influential player in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be the most botched-up analysis I have seen in many years! The US is not "prime" in the Middle East! Israel is! And it has been obvious to all, and emphasized by the recent Congressional battle over the Iran deal, that the US merely acts as Israel's puppet in the region!

Russia does not discriminate between the different shades of 'crap' (terrorists)

American military expert, a former Colonel of the U.S. army Jack Jacobs said that the United States can't interfere with Russians in Syria, as Russia de facto set up a no-fly zone, cutting off access to any aircraft with the help of air defense systems deployed on land and on ships of the Russian navy in the Mediterranean.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia has declared they are under no obligation to discriminate between US-supported terrorists and any other terrorists. If Saudi Arabia carries out is threat to attack Assad, and Russia shoots down the US-supplied Saudi Aircraft, WW3 will have begun for real in Syria (which will be a great relief to the Europeans, who still think it will not spread to Europe.)

Is Hillary Clinton America's Most Ambitious Sociopath?

In many ways, Hillary Rodham Clinton is an ordinary American woman with an ordinary American family. She's a loyal wife (to a sex-maniac ex-president), a caring mother (to a daughter who married a hedge fund), and a connoisseur of expensive, shiny objects (given to her by medieval dictators). Simply put, Hillary Clinton is as American as apple pie-induced diabetes, and this is why responsible Democrats will vote for her in the upcoming “Banker's Choice Awards” in November, 2016.

Russia Claims ISIS Now On The Ropes As Fighters Desert After 60 Airstrikes In 72 Hours

One question that’s been asked repeatedly over the past thirteen months is why Washington has been unable to achieve the Pentagon’s stated goal of “degrading and defeating” ISIS despite the fact that the “battle” pits the most advanced air force on the planet against what amounts to a ragtag band of militants running around the desert in basketball shoes.

Those of a skeptical persuasion have been inclined to suggest that perhaps the US isn’t fully committed to the fight. Explanations for that suggestion range from the mainstream (the White House is loathe to get the US into another Mid-East war) to the “conspiratorial” (the CIA created ISIS and thus doesn’t want to destroy the group due to its value as a strategic asset).

Russian Air Force hits 50 ISIS targets in Syria over 3 days, ‘significantly’ damaging militants

The Russian Air Force has conducted more than 60 flights and bombed over 50 Islamic State targets in three days, according to Russia’s top armed forces official. He added the strikes have significantly reduced the terrorists’ combat capabilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While Obama insists Russia's attacks make ISIS stronger. And, I supposes, running like hell for the Iraqi border will build up their leg muscles!

Russians Say U.S. Not Bombing ISIS

“McCain accused us of striking out at US-trained insurgents… However, since they have either run away or joined al-Qaeda, hitting them is a mission impossible,” Pushkov wrote on his Twitter account.

“The US-led coalition spent a whole year pretending they were striking ISIL targets but where are the results of these strikes?” Pushkov asked during and interview with France’s Europe 1 Radio.

Max Boot, a neocon ideologue at the Council on Foreign Relations, admits the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS is primarily smoke and mirrors.

Oct 04 08:17


ISIS IS ISRAEL, ISIS is Israel Secret Intelligence Service, it is a covert Mossad Army, a proxy army of Israel and it’s goal is to drive Muslims out of Greater Israel. But now Russia has landed Syria and conducted the first airstrikes against the enemies of Assad. This portends the END OF the drive for GREATER ISRAEL WHICH ENCOMPASSES MUCH OF SYRIA.

Physical Cash Poses a HUGE Problem For Central Banks

Globally, over $5 trillion in debt currently have negative yields in nominal terms, meaning the bond literally has a negative yield when it trades. In the simplest of terms this means that investors are PAYING to own these bonds.

Bonds are not unique in this regard. Switzerland, Denmark and other countries are now charging deposits at their banks. In France and Italy, you are not allowed to make cash transactions above €1,000.

This sounds laughable to most people, but it is a reality in Europe… and in the US, in some regions. Louisiana has made it illegal to purchase second hand goods using cash.

This is just the beginning. The War on Cash will be spreading in the coming weeks.

The reasoning is simple. Most large financial entities are insolvent. As a result, if a significant amount of digital money is converted into actual physical cash, the firm would very quickly implode.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The obvious solution is to pull all cash out of the banks now while you still can, and hide it where the money-junkies troops cannot find it.

Alabama Makes Photo IDs Mandatory for Voting, Then Shutters DMV Offices in Black Counties

Some observers say that Alabama’s move to close dozens of drivers license offices is a discriminatory move that could trigger a civil rights probe.

Here’s why: in 2011 lawmakers approved a voter ID law requiring a government-issued ID to vote, and the 31 offices the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency set for closing—which the agency said was due to the $11 million cut in the new General Fund appropriation—will take a disproportionate hit on counties that are majority African-American.

Columnist John Archibald writes that “Alabama just took a giant step backward.”

“Every single county in which blacks make up more than 75 percent of registered voters will see their driver license office closed. Every one,” he continues, writing that the state “might as well just send an invitation to the Justice Department.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

Jews and Gun Control: A Reprise

The thorny issue of Jewish support for gun control has reared its head once more, this time in Washington State. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle has called for the resignation of Brian Judy, a National Rifle Association lobbyist who reportedly linked gun control to that untouchable icon of Jewish victimhood, the Holocaust. At a news conference at the Federation’s Seattle headquarters, President Keith Dvorchik said Judy should resign for connecting an anti-gun ballot initiative to policies pursued by Nazi Germany. Dvorchik further demanded the national office of the NRA “make clear that it rejects his ignorant and unproductive dialogue.”

Russia Uses High Tech Smart Bombs to Wipe Out US Sponsored Al Qaeda Terrorists. Panic in Rebel Ranks

The entire free world wants terrorism defeated. Russia leads the effort to confront it head-on,

On October 3, Tass said Russian aircraft conducted over 60 sorties so far, bombing 50 ISIS targets, causing consternation in its ranks. National Defence Control Centre Col. General Andrey Kartapolov said “aircraft have been taking off from the Hmeimim air base (night and day), targeting the whole of Syria.”

“In the past three days we have managed to disrupt the terrorists’ infrastructure and to substantially degrade their combat capabilities. Intelligence reports say that militants are leaving the areas under their control.”

“A bunker-busting BETAB-500 air bomb dropped from a Sukhoi Su-34 bomber near Raqqa has eliminated the command post of one of the terror groups, together with an underground storage facility for explosives and munitions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is highly likely that Putin will do in 4 months what the US government, allegedly, was not able to do in 4 years.

But of course, ISIS was always totally under US government control, and funded by the US government, and was a "convenient nuisance" to trot out by the whorespondents in order to brow-beat the American people to accept more US boots on the ground in Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq.

And, oh, by the way: the Iraqi government has just formally requested that the Russian military bomb ISIS targets in Iraq.

Cold War Mentality: NATO Should Prepare for War With Russia – UK Officials

Former UK army officials said that the Russian military is more effective in comparison to NATO’s, calling on the bloc’s leaders to urgently invest more money on improvement of joint force capabilities and to “revisit Cold War scenarios, and this includes conventional, symmetric warfare in Eastern Europe,” The Sunday Express reported.
First, British Army officials appear alarmed by the ability of the Armata battle tank, which is an example of a new generation of Russian power tanks with nothing comparable elsewhere in the world. It can easily withstand any attack by NATO’s anti-tank missiles, both already in existence and those yet-to-be invented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War with Russia?!? Forgive me, but have the people in the British MOD, collectively, gone absolutely out of their minds?!? This is complete, utter desperation on the cusp of madness.

And short memo to the British military; just because you have not kept up with hardware and tank technology is no reason for blaming the Russian military for having better equipment than you do.

Obviously, the Russian military and government were thinking ahead, while the British military and were not. So, work the problem, folks; work the problem!!

36,000 troops, 200 aircraft & 60 vessels: NATO launches biggest war games in 13 years

NATO has started its biggest exercise since 2002 with 36,000 international troops from 30 states, including non-NATO nations, participating in the drills which are taking place at sea, in the air and across the territory of three European states.
The alliance has kicked off its massive “Trident Juncture 2015” exercises which will last until November 16. Along with the NATO member states, seven more partner nations are participating in the drills: Australia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Sweden and Ukraine.

Some 36,000 troops as well as more than 60 warships and about 200 aircraft will participate in the drills which makes it the biggest since 2002 when about 40,000 troops took part in NATO’s “Strong Resolve” military exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More NATO posturing against Russia, I see.

All anyone has to do, to get a sense of NATO's real-world war capabilities, is to look at their performance in the 15 year old occupation of Afghanistan, which can only charitably be described as "less than stellar".

Craig McKee explains logistics of mailing out AE911 Truth's booklet "Beyond Misinformation" to 20,000 specially selected recipients including NIST engineers

AE911Truth operations manager Andy Steele and volunteers Josh Ewing and Chris Kendall, who were responsible for building the distribution list for the mailing, had to be really creative as they went about finding contact information for the most influential people in government, media, academia, and professional associations and firms.

"These are the opinion makers and the news makers in their fields," Steele points out. "Now they can no longer claim ignorance of the evidence or turn a blind eye to the crime of the century, which is a cover-up of the fact that three buildings were brought down in controlled demolitions that day."

A particular challenge for Steele et al. was getting the booklet to the individuals who worked on the 9/11 official reports published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

38% of American Workforce Still Jobless

Oct 04 07:20


The US president has slammed Russian airstrikes against Islamic State in Syria, going as far as to accuse Moscow of making ISIS stronger by decapacitating the “moderate folks,” prepared by Washington to stitch the country back together once Syria falls.

In his first public comments since Russia launched anti-terrorist airstrikes in Syria, US President Barack Obama was fiercely harsh, claiming that Moscow’s military operation was counterproductive and is not distinguishing between Islamic State targets and the so-called moderate opposition.

The US leader accused Russia of weakening the Syrian rebels’ chances of eventually toppling President Assad’s government and somehow strengthening ISIS as a result.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but if there was EVER a time in this country's history to invoke the 25th Amendment, now is bloody well the time, with Obama's response to these Russian bombings. As reported by Mike Whitney at Counterpunch this morning:

For more than a year, the United States has been playing patty-cake with an army of homicidal maniacs who call themselves ISIS. On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he'd had enough of Washington's song-and-dance and was planning to bring a little Russian justice to the terrorist militias that had killed 225,000 Syrians and ripped the country to shreds. In language that could not be more explicit, Putin said to the General Assembly: "We can no longer tolerate the currents state of affairs in the world". Less than 48 hours later, Russian bombers were raining down precision-guided munitions on terrorist strongholds across western Syria sending the jihadi vermin scrambling for cover. That's how you fight terrorism if you're serious about it. Bravo, Putin. A military alliance between Moscow, Tehran and Hezbollah? You're darn tootin', and you can thank Barack Obama and his lunatic regime change plan for that development.

Many critics of Putin's action have said that "He doesn't know what he's doing" or "He'll get bogged down" or "It'll be another Vietnam". Wrong. The fact is, Putin is more a devotee of the Powell Doctrine than any of the morons at the Pentagon. And he is particularly mindful of Rule Number 5 which states: "Is there a plausible exit strategy to avoid endless entanglement?"

Has Putin thought about that or has he merely blundered ahead impulsively like US leaders are so apt to do? Here's what he said on September 30: "We naturally have no intention of getting deeply entangled in this conflict. We will act strictly in accordance with our set mission. First, we will support the Syrian army only in its lawful fight against terrorist groups. Second, our support will be limited to airstrikes and will not involve ground operations. Third, our support will have a limited timeframe and will continue only while the Syrian army conducts its anti-terrorist offensive." Bingo. In other words, he's going to bomb these jokers into oblivion and let Quds brigade and Hezbollah mop up afterwards. There will be no Russian boots-on-the-ground. The Russian airforce will get precise intelligence on ISIS locations from Syrian agents on the battlefield which will minimize civilian casualties and limit damage to critical infrastructure. It will also make mincemeat out of anyone on the receiving end of the bombardment. Does anyone seriously believe that ISIS and the disparate rabble of "moderate" throat-slitters that receive CIA funding are going to be able to withstand this impending onslaught? No way. Putin's going to cut through these guys like a tornado through a trailer park. Yes, ISIS has had some success against the bedraggled Iraqi and Syrian armies. But now they're up-against the A Team where they are clearly out of their league. Rolling up these cutthroats is going to take a lot less time than anyone figured.

And so what is the Obama Administration's "response" to this?!? As reported today at the Washington Post:

President Obama has decided not to directly confront Russia over its new air offensive in Syria, believing that President Vladi­mir Putin will soon find himself in a Syrian “quagmire,” but he has approved a new escalation of U.S. efforts against the Islamic State. Obama laid out the U.S. response to Russia’s actions during a meeting with senior aides Thursday evening. Details were firmed up in a meeting Friday morning among national security principals at the White House, senior administration officials said. At the same time, the president also approved proposals, made prior to this week’s Russian actions, to strengthen the U.S. fight against the militants. Those measures were recommended by Obama’s new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. They include direct U.S. weapons shipments, overland from Iraq, to Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighters who in recent months have pushed the Islamic State from a major portion of northern Syria along the Turkish border.

In other words, the Obama Administration is going to do precisely what they have done before, without any remotely tangible success, for the last 4 years, while the Russian government has introduced a game-changing military tactic here to which the Administration cannot seem to respond.

How to Spy the 9/11 Lie

A recent book written by veteran CIA officers describes how deception can be identified by simple observational techniques. In Spy the Lie: Former CIA Officers Teach You How to Detect Deception, authors Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero outline a number of verbal and visual behavioral clues that are demonstrated by people who lie in response to questioning. These proven techniques for recognizing deception can be easily applied to see that U.S. leaders have lied repeatedly about the attacks of 9/11.

U.S. Dodges Responsibility For Saudi Airstrikes That Kill Yemeni Civilians

The Obama administration is moving to distance itself from the mounting civilian casualties in Yemen’s civil war, while simultaneously providing targeting assistance to a Saudi Arabian-led coalition that has been conducting airstrikes over Yemen for the past six months.

United Nations officials say the coalition is responsible for the majority of the country's civilian deaths, which recently surpassed 2,300.

Last Saturday, airstrikes targeting Taiz, a city about 170 miles south of the capital, killed over 130 people attending a wedding. Yemen’s International Red Crescent Society reported that two of its volunteers, Qaed Faisal, 28, and Omar Fareh, 31, were killed by the shelling in a neighboring area on the same day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This administration not only dodges responsibility for the civilian deaths in Yemen; it also dodges responsibility for EVERYTHING negative it has generated, then attempts to lie to gloss it over.

Why Afghanistan Is Going To Fall To The Taliban Again. And It's Not Why You Think.

Last week, the Taliban began the process of retaking Afghanistan, starting with the northern city of Kunduz. The U.S. and Afghan governments have since been battling to recapture it -- a fight that included the U.S. bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital that killed at least 12 medical staff, along with at least seven patients, on Saturday.

The Taliban has since charged that Afghan intelligence purposely gave the U.S. the hospital's coordinates. Even the possibility that such an accusation is true -- and the duration of the sustained attack suggests that something unusual happened -- points toward the reason that Afghanistan is headed back toward Taliban control: The government is thoroughly corrupt, and the U.S. has been unwilling to take measures to address the situation. While a handful of civilian and military leaders identified corruption as an existential threat to the country, the problem remains unsolved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I would expect the US government to do, at this point, is to throw even more US troops and weapons into the pyre here, because it can never, ever admit it made an horrendous mistake with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, and lied to the American people about the real reasons for the invasion and occupation.

The Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban over the cost of oil pipeline routes; when the cost was deemed "too high", the invasion and occupation came swiftly after.

And while Americans at home were being distracted by the Chandra Levy/ Gary Condit saga, courtesy of the corporate whorespondents, the US government was quietly informing other nations around the world of the imminent invasion of Afghanistan.

This wretched war has never been about protecting freedom, or the American way of life; it has always been about private corporate profit for the oil companies, the defense-industrial complex, and the bankers, who loan money to all sides to keep the wars going.

THIS is why our very brave men and women in uniform have been killed or maimed for life in this meatgrinder: it's all about private corporate profits, folks, period, end of discussion.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable." Throughout this horrific, 15 year occupation, with no accountability from local leadership whatsoever, the US government and Pentagon have been sewing the seeds leading to precisely this ultimate outcome.

Oct 04 06:41


It’s a new era of American politics. With regard to campaign finance, the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling — and the arguably worse McCutcheon v. FEC ruling — opened the doors to unrestricted corporate funding of our national elections.

The primary mechanism in place facilitating this flood of private money is the super PAC. You’ve probably heard of super PACs and how they’ve essentially taken over the role traditionally filled by individual campaign donors in Political Action Committees (PACs). But super PACs aren’t the end of it. There are puppet political non-profits, business associations, and now, single-candidate “dark money” outfits that, as of September 21, have already raised $25.1 million — five times the amount spent by this time in the 2012 election cycle.

Needless to say, this is an election in which most of the candidates are seeking support from wealthy donors instead of the citizens they are supposed to be representing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thinking Americans understand that they are no longer represented at all in government.

What started out as a government by the people, of the people, and for the people, has morphed into a government by the corporations, of the corporations, and for the corporations.

Elections have devolved into this Kabuki-style pointless exercise to give people the illusion that they have any say in what their government does, when, in fact, in the 21st century, they absolutely do not.

And so the ultimate question has to arrive; how can one, logically, support a government which does not at all represent you, and what can you do about it?!?

I do now know how the answer to this question will unfold; I only know that, at some point, it will.

Billions From U.S. Fail to Sustain Foreign Forces

With alarming frequency in recent years, thousands of American-trained security forces in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia have collapsed, stalled or defected, calling into question the effectiveness of the tens of billions of dollars spent by the United States on foreign military training programs, as well as a central tenet of the Obama administration’s approach to combating insurgencies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are only two words with which one can aptly describe US foreign policy in the Middle East and beyond for the last 15 years, and they are: epic fail.

Why is it, in the last two administrations, that one of the most pressing criteria for working in the US government appears to be a pathological inability to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion?!?

Oct 04 06:25


Earlier this week, 21WIRE reported how the Taliban overtook the strategic city of Kunduz in northern Afghanistan.

Critics are questioning NATO’s effectiveness after 15 years of combat operations and military occupation in the country.

Immediately after this story broke, US mainstream media propaganda kicked into high gear and falsely reported that the Afghan government security forces “have retaken the city”, even though this was a lie. Most likely this was leaked by NATO while they were assessing a counter measure. Soon reality set in and the US media were forced to admit that the US-led NATO operation had in fact lost Kunduz.

What the US did next will shock you…

As part of NATO’s counter assault, an US airstrike bombed a hospital, killing many of its staff, doctors and patients, so far killing 9 and wounding 37. Those numbers are expected to rise sharply in the next 48 hrs as team sift through the debris.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military wants to see Doctors Without Borders out of Afghanistan completely, so that they can kill and wound Afghanis more effectively, without any possible access to modern medical treatment available.

IF in fact the GPS coordinates were known, the bombing of the hospital by the US military was absolutely deliberate.

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at velocity, upon reading this.

One of the classical definitions of insanity is doing the same thing, precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome.

Has this government NOT been arming the alleged "moderate militants" in Syria for the last 4 years, with a billion-plus dollar price tag, and can anyone give me any kind of positive news about what, precisely, this has accomplished?!?

Utterly nothing; zero, zip, nada.

And by the way, folks, Russia has been invited by the Syrian government to assist them in fighting ISIS; the US government has not.

The Iraqi Prime Minister has sent a request to Moscow for the Russian air strikes on positions videoconferencing IG in Iraq

Note: Title and excerpt are Google translations

"As reported to Pravda.Ru, the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov yesterday told reporters on the results of air strikes on the positions of the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (banned in Russia). The briefing was held at the National Center for Control of Defense.

According to him, three days of air strikes failed to significantly reduce the combat potential of the IG terrorists in Syria. Destroyed more than 50 categories of objects, about 600 mercenaries left their positions and trying to get to Europe. In the ranks of the militants started to panic and mass desertion.

Obamaspeak on Syria: New wine in old bottle

Is anybody fooled?

snip: The narrative is that Assad stares at defeat, while all expert opinion suggests otherwise. Obama still imagines there is a ‘moderate Syrian opposition’ the US can work with and that Assad must amicably make way for this opposition.

Obama probably knows he is holding on to a world of make-believe as part of public diplomacy. The US’ regional allies would expect him to stick to the narrative. On the other hand, what options does he have under the circumstances?

Obama underscored that Washington will neither cooperate nor militarily oppose the Russian operations in Syria. Instead, he chooses to thoroughly disagree with Putin’s decision and will keep harping on the need for a political solution to the conflict.

snip: to Syria, where Russia, in roughly 48 hours, did more to smash the Wahhabi/Salafi-jihadi terror matrix than the coalition of dodgy opportunists in over a year and 6,000-plus “sorties.” So many wonders you can operate with a couple of Su-24s, decent sat intel, decent ground intel, and political will.

And then the bigger bang, not a whimper; the larger-than-life ridicule enveloping that tentacular industrial-military-security-intel complex that wastes 1.3 trillion a year.

When Insulting the Police is a "Crime"

snip: Allen insisted that Smith had written his comments with the purpose of “intimidating” the bold and valiant paladins of public order who patrol the forbidding streets of Arena, Wisconsin – two square miles inhabited by about 800 people whose ethnic homogenity makes the Osmond family look like the United Colors of Benetton.

Now, I grant that no amount of body armor adequate to protect the uniquely vulnerable egos of police officers who are targeted for abuse and ridicule. This is why we are told that growing – and still woefully inadequate – public criticism of law enforcement is nothing less than a “war on police,” and that high-profile criticism of cops is akin to ISIS-caliber terrorism.

France admits it directly supplied arms to Syrian “rebels”

President François Hollande confirmed in a Le Monde interview on August 19 that France has been directly supplying arms to the “rebels” of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in its proxy war to remove the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. This came ahead of the recent US decision to intervene militarily in Syria, ostensibly to crush the Islamic State (IS) opposition militia operating in Iraq and Syria.

French imperialism has been arming Syrian Islamist opposition forces since at least the spring of 2013.
