Big Oil, Qataris, Saudis Lick Lips As US 'Fights ISIS' By Bombing Syrian Pipelines

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In yet another example of the infantile nature of NATO propaganda regarding the Syrian crisis, it is now being reported in the mainstream media that that the United States must bomb Syrian oil pipelines in order to defeat the ISIS threat that NATO itself created.

While logically fallacious, the rationale offered to the American public remains that ISIS is making millions of dollars per day via the sale of the oil taken from the fields in its possession on the black market to a number of different states...

Treating Putin Like a Lunatic when He makes Sense

Official Washington treats whatever comes out of Russian President Putin’s mouth as the ravings of a lunatic, even when what he says is obviously true or otherwise makes sense, as the New York Times has demonstrated again.

Rationality and realism seem to have lost any place in the workings of the mainstream U.S. news media.

When reading the New York Times on many foreign policy issues, it doesn’t take a savant to figure out what the newspaper’s bias is. Anything, for instance, relating to Russian President Vladimir Putin drips of contempt and hostility.

US lawlessness fuels global insecurity

In an insightful geopolitical speech this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the US of instigating global instability and insecurity.

All in all, President Putin is right. The world has become a fearful, nervous place seemingly on a hair-trigger for over-reaction and irrational panic. This state of insecurity has, as Putin says, been brought on by years of lawless conduct by the US and its Western allies. The criminal wars of Iraq and Afghanistan – with millions of innocent victims – have multiplied and mutated into more and more illegal interventions and malignancies, such as the extremist ISIL network that is destabilizing Syria and the wider Middle East region.

Ft. McClellen Military Base Poisoned with Monsanto’s Leftover Chemicals

The veterans suspected that PCBs were being released by Monsanto. For decades, the biotech and seed company, also a former military contractor for bioweapons, dumped tons of the chemicals around Anniston, Alabama, where the base is located. The controversy culminated in 2003 in a $700 million settlement with residents, but the problems persist. Some service members are now reporting higher incidence of children born with birth defects.

The Reagan-Bush Era Iran Hostage Crisis Subterfuge (* sub·ter·fuge noun: deceit used in order to achieve one's goal.)

In that year,(*1980) when Ronald Reagan was the Republican candidate trying to stop the re-election of President Jimmy Carter, a potentially treasonable plot was hatched, which came to be known as the 'October Surprise'. To stop Carter getting the credit for securing the release of the 52 US embassy hostages seized after the Iranian revolution, members of the Reagan campaign flew to Paris to meet Iranian and Israeli representatives in October, less than a month before the election on 4 November.
***
It was agreed with the Iranians that the hostages would not be released before the election. In return, the Reagan-Bush team promised to supply $40m of military equipment if elected. Military equipment started to flow to Iran from Israel on 21 October, the proffered release of the hostages was withdrawn, and Carter was defeated. The hostages were finally released on 21 January 1981, minutes after Reagan was sworn in as president.

JFK: THE ZIONIST MANIFOLD COVER-UP

To discover the deepest truth of the JFK assassination, one has to tear up not one, but many lies stacked on top of each other. Pealing off the government lie is just the beginning. Just like in the case of 9/11, the mainstream “JFK truth movement” is really a cloud of partial truths meant to hide the core truth (the Zionist coup).

The hijacked plot theory is fully consistent with the profiles of the two main known actors in the drama: Lee Harvey Oswald, the patsy falsely accused of killing the President, and Jack Ruby, the man who killed the patsy and thereby closed the case.

George Soros and his Kind are Evil, Mass Murdering Monsters.

You got all kinds of evil running loose in these times. By definition, these are evil times, being as it is the Kali Yuga. The very worst of us profit without reserve and the best of us are hammered into the pavement. There's supposed to be some kind of justice in this but... those of us who are within the constraints of single lifetimes and lacking the panorama view of the realized, are hard pressed to see it. It's there somewhere. Of course, I'm speaking only for those of us that believe in something. For those of us that believe in nothing, except ones own blind, naked ignorance, the appearance of justice is nowhere to be seen. There's one thing we can certainly presume is true and that is that we will find out at some point, even if... in the cases of those who believe nothing, they find nothing. It might be that that is how it works; to each according to what they do or do not believe.

CDC Responds Rapidly to New York Ebola Case

When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention learned that a doctor in New York City likely had Ebola on Thursday, it didn’t wait.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


CDC is still being reactive rather than proactive. They are playing catch up, waiting until a patient appears and racing to the rescue (in full view of the media cameras) after the patient has already potentially infected others. We are in a race against Ebola and to judge from Africa, Ebola is winning. And in a race like this there is no second place, only dead last!

Suspicious Death of Journalist Serena Shim: Hypocritical Western Media Remains Silent

The suspicious death of US-born journalist Serena Shim, and the deafening silence on the story in the US, is merely the latest example of the blatant double standard employed by the Western media.

Shim, a 29 year old American journalist of Lebanese descent, had been covering the ongoing war in Syria, specifically the current battle between ISIS militants and Kurdish forces near the Syrian town of Kobani, from the Turkish-Syrian border. Shim was traveling in a rental car back to her hotel after reporting from the Turkish town of Suruc near the Syrian border, when the car was allegedly struck by a heavy vehicle, killing Shim.

Kiev Elections Can’t Sanitise State of Mob Rule

In the paraphrased words of Abraham Lincoln, no electoral process can sanitize the glaring fact of Kiev’s rule of the mob, by the mob, for the mob.

The Kiev regime’s parliamentary elections this weekend are set to go ahead amid an atmosphere of rampant political street violence and intimidation – and that’s not in the war-torn eastern part of Ukraine. Poroshenko denies the bitter reality of violence that has engulfed all of Ukraine under the Western-sponsored regime change operation in his country.

The parliamentary elections were called in June by the then elected President Petro Poroshenko as a way of legitimizing the illegal coup against the Ukrainian government that occurred four months previously with the support of the American Central Intelligence Agency.

Political parties that might have been considered in alliance because of their support for the coup against the Ukrainian government in February are now being caught up in an anarchic state of hoodlum vendettas.

The Document Dump that Could Kill Hillary’s Presidential Hopes

Although Mrs. Clinton is still embroiled in scandal, the overwhelming amount of information that has been released by the National Archives could strike a serious blow to her chances of becoming president.

A good deal of America doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton when she declares that she and the rest of the administration did everything they could to prevent the attacks on Benghazi from taking place.

But while her current behavior is classless and abusive, voters will hopefully see that the pattern of behavior is nothing new as scandal from years gone by will be rearing its ugly head.

That’s because the National Archives will be releasing over 10,000 pages worth of documents covering the former first lady’s time in office.

People Are Trying to Sell Cinnamon Bark as an Ebola Cure

Marion Nestle reports that several supplement manufacturers are selling vitamins that promise to prevent or treat Ebola. The claims caught the attention of the FDA, which has issued warning letters to three of the manufacturers: Natural Solutions Foundation, Young Living, and DoTERRA International LLC. The agency lists specific claims it finds worrisome; for example, on a Young Living consultant's website, "Ebola Virus can not live in the presence of cinnamon bark."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Despite the WHO authorizing the use of unproven treatments to deal with the Ebola the reality is that only treatments from the giant pharmaceutical corporations are being allowed. The FDA, still looking at Ebola from the economic point of view, is coming down hard on anyone offering treatments from which the pharmaceutical corporations cannot make the profit.

We know the FDA is blocking use of even mention of nano silver products wherever they can, despite the fact that both Nigeria and Sierra Leone have told the US Government to shove their regulations (possibly in response to the growing awareness that the US Government may have triggered the Ebola outbreak in Africa with a botched vaccine trial) and are treating Ebola patients with nano-silver and reporting positive results.
That being said, it was observed during the 1918 flu pandemic (also triggered by a botched vaccine trial) that workers at a factory that processed cinnamon for bakeries did not come down with the flu. This triggered widespread use of cinnamon, usually mixed with milk, which did in fact lower the fever and reduce symptoms of those already infected with the flu. Most naturally occurring antibiotics are broad spectrum, which means they are effective against a wide variety of infections, whereas modern pharmaceutical antibiotics are designed to be effective against specific infectious agents and are usually useless against others.

So do your own research and make your own choices.

After all, are you willing to bet your life the government, media, and pharmaceutical corporations are telling you the truth?

3 Simple Ways to Block the Damaging Effects of Mainstream Media

Bernie Suarez

Life is one huge psychological journey. This is what I believe. You are what you think you are. You control your journey and how much you actually enjoy it. You control how happy (or for that matter how sad and miserable) you will be because you control your own thoughts. Yes, you make decisions everyday on what thoughts you will allow into you mind. You also make decisions about how you will approach things in your life including new information. The choice of personal attitude toward things, preconceived notions, and good or bad assumptions about the world around us is all within our reach and control. For this reason I want to discuss a bit about how your mind should operate when you come across mainstream media news...

House oversight panel examines response to Ebola crisis

The chairman of a House oversight panel on Friday slammed President Obama's choice of Ron Klain as his new Ebola czar.

"Sadly, in my opinion, (Klain's appointment) shows the administration has on one hand recognized the missteps (in handling the Ebola crisis), but on the other hand is not prepared to put a known leader or a medical professional in place," said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pure political grandstanding ahead of the elections. Congress is trying to act like they are in control of this situation, and they are not. The virus is.

Congress, like the Obama administration and CDC, are playing catch-up.

As for an Ebola czar, Obama picked a spin-doctor to keep the public calm, keep them going to the shopping malls, keep them focused on the wars, and make sure they showed up to the voting booths next month. Personally I think Dr. Ron Paul would have been the ideal choice, being both a medical doctor himself and knowing how DC works. Klain didn't even show up for today's hearing!

Western Sponsors Liable for Kiev Basket Case

Washington is even more circumspect than Brussels on the matter of providing hard cash to Kiev, as opposed to lots of hot-air promises of nebulous aid. One gets the feeling that the Western sponsors know full well that this regime is a basket case. Nevertheless, these Western sponsors are liable for the basket case that they created.

Since Washington and Brussels shunted the geopolitical tracks in the first place to create the financial train wreck that is now manifestly the Ukraine, you would think that there might be a sense of obligation on Western governments to salvage the mess. Not a bit of it, it seems.

Furthermore, the train wreck is careening dangerously into the Russian economy. But still, the Western governments adopt an attitude that Moscow must pay for the damages.

New York Fed’s Conference Evokes Thoughts of Violence Against Wall Street

“Since 2008, fines imposed on the nation’s largest banks have far exceeded $100 billion. The pattern of bad behavior did not end with the financial crisis, but continued despite the considerable public sector intervention that was necessary to stabilize the financial system. As a consequence, the financial industry has largely lost the public trust. To illustrate, a 2012 Harris poll found that 42 percent of people responded either ‘somewhat’ or ‘a lot’ to the statement that Wall Street ‘harms the country’; furthermore, 68 percent disagreed with the statement: ‘In general, people on Wall Street are as honest and moral as other people.’ ”

Further cementing that public distrust, the media was barred from attending Monday’s conference at the New York Fed. Press members who nonetheless reported on the event evoked a recurring theme of violent acts to deal with incorrigible actors.

Top Regulator Says Bank CEOs Meant Well -- This Evidence Says Otherwise

The head of one of Wall Street's most important regulatory agencies argued recently that Big Bank CEOs never intended to break the law or engage in foreclosure fraud. Instead, Thomas Curry of the Office of Comptroller of the Currency tells us they weren't cautious enough.

Internal documents obtained from a bank-backed venture several years ago seem to directly contradict this claim. These documents, which include training materials, PowerPoint presentations, and videos, suggest that the industry made a conscious attempt to bypass local jurisdictions and automate processes -- in what can best be described as a fraud-friendly way.

Fed Up With DOJ Misconduct, Fraud and False Evidence – Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice. This latest litigation time bomb has exploded from multi-million dollar litigation originally brought by the Department of Justice against Sierra Pacific based on allegations that the lumber company and related defendants were responsible for a wildfire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

The forgotten coup - How America and Britain crushed the government of their 'ally', Australia

Across the political and media elite in Australia, a silence has descended on the memory of the great, reforming prime minister Gough Whitlam, who has died. His achievements are recognized, if grudgingly, his mistakes noted in false sorrow.

But a critical reason for his extraordinary political demise will, they hope, be buried with him.

Australia briefly became an independent state during the Whitlam years, 1972-75. An American commentator wrote that no country had “reversed its posture in international affairs so totally without going through a domestic revolution”.

Whitlam ended his nation’s colonial servility. He abolished Royal patronage, moved Australia towards the Non-Aligned Movement, supported “zones of peace” and opposed nuclear weapons testing.

If a legitimate viral threat existed and threatened to infect and kill millions of Americans, is it then acceptable for the government to step in, remove civil liberties, enforce quarantines, and stop people from spreading the disease?...

Neocon Sabotage of Iran-Nuke Deal

David Sanger’s article in the New York Times about how the Obama administration is seeking a nuclear accord with Iran that would not require any early votes in Congress has garnered a lot of attention. Naturally, the administration in response has offered assurances that Congress has a role to play and no one is trying to shove it out of the picture. Just as naturally, opponents of the administration accuse it of such shoving.

Forex-Rigging Fines Could Hit $41 Billion Globally: Citi

“Extrapolating European and, more importantly, U.S. penalties from a previous global settlement suggests to us a total potential global settlement on this key issue,” they said in the note.

Probes into allegations that traders rigged foreign-exchange benchmarks could cost banks as much as $41 billion to settle,Citigroup Inc. (C) analysts said.

Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) is seen as probably the “most impacted” with a fine of as much as 5.1 billion euros ($6.5 billion), Citigroup analysts led by Kinner Lakhani said yesterday, estimating the Frankfurt-based bank’s settlements could reach 10 percent of its tangible book value, or its assets’ worth.

Brazil under CIA Pressure

The activities of non-government organizations are not restricted in any way; their members have close ties with US embassy and consulate staff, as well as USAID workers. The human intelligence is used to discredit the policy of the Dilma Rousseff government. The lies about its ineffectiveness are spread around by all available means. «Experts» forecast collapse in case the President wins another term. They disseminate dubious results of «rating polls» that complicate the vision of reality.

Over two thousand Brazilian political activists, intellectuals, people of art and culture signed a manifest on October 26 highlighting the hostile actions of Washington aimed at prevention of Dilma Rousseff election victory.

Philip Giraldi: Stopping Cyber Hate

ADL has recently been meeting in California with a British group called the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism, which included the Community Security Trust (CST). The CST advocates physical response to anti-Semitic incidents, to include the equipping and training of organized “self-defense” forces. CST is controversial in the UK, partly because many British Jews believe they are adequately protected by the police. It has also been criticized because its Director is the highest paid head of any Jewish organization in the country and its finances are alleged to be non-transparent.

An article entitled “Web giants unite to fight online hate” described the purpose of the California meeting. It reported that a “game changing” agreement was reached with Twitter, Facebook, Google and Microsoft to take steps to stop “the proliferation of racist and abusive comments” and to “force racism and hatred from the web.”

American refugee in Russia (not Snowden) persecuted by US gestapo

The banksters and the American gestapo they own can’t touch Snowden – for now. He’s too famous. And besides, he’s only speaking out against the police state, not the 9/11 false flag operation that launched it.

But Robles, a less-well-known 9/11-truth-seeking journalist, enjoys no such protection. It appears that US/bankster agents in Russia have launched a campaign to punish Robles for daring to draw attention to the 9/11 coup d’état, Craft International’s Boston Marathon false-flag bombing, Operation Gladio, and similar third-rail stories. The police state’s only vulnerability is 9/11 truth – the achilles heel of the neocon regime that rules America. So Snowden is tolerated, while Robles is being hammered into the ground by US agents in the Russian media. (Those agents serve the same Zionist interests as the dual-citizen oligarchs who have so much power in Russia; both groups represent the NWO and both are terrified of 9/11 truth.)

Public Records RC §149.43 Phone Call with Summit Cty. Clerk of Courts on Reimer Arnovitz IOLTA Account.

I have documented proof in courts of law and from my own experience that Ohio Foreclosure Mill Reimer, Arnovitz Chernek & Jeffrey have been telling lies since 1977. I also have substantial reason to believe that the odds are good that the goods are odd when it comes down to their IOLTA accounts as noted in prior videos.

I am now going to receive copies of canceled checks from the Summit County Clerk of Courts regarding the close out foreclosure files. From what I understand Reimer's clients are now demanding strict accounting because of ethical concerns.

I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE

As a society, we have been duped by the powers that be. We were told to chant the following …

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yet, the President of the United States promised CHANGE …. and yes, he kept his promise. Things have changed from bad to worse!

Are we expected to accept that?

I SAY NO!

Saying Good-Bye to Fear of the 1918 Flu

We have had a pandemic run-through already. By now the country's knows the H1N1 pandemic was a dud. Many even know it was fake.

The whole thing was so bizarre that the Eu Parliament investigated as did the British Medical journal, condemning ties between the pharmaceutical industry and flu "experts."

A man at the WHO named Osterhaus has been the main person at the WHO saying that pandemics - SARS, Ebola, Avian flu, swine flu - were going to kill millions.

"Not only is Osterhaus the connecting person in an international network that has been described as the Pharma Mafia, he is THE key advisor to WHO on influenza and is intimately positioned to personally profit from the billions of euros in vaccines ..."

Israeli Billionaire Asks Clinton to Run for Presidency

The billionaire, who is worth an estimated $3 billion, has reportedly promised to donate "as much as needed" to get Clinton elected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, let us start with the fact that foreign donations to US political campaigns are illegal under Federal Election Campaign Law: § 441e. But no doubt our Israeli billionaire has the money laundry already in place to get around that minor inconvenience.

Here we have Hillary, who has been presenting herself herself to media and public as the voice of the poor, the needy, and helpless, blah, blah, blah, partying with the ultra-rich and ready to sell the American people into the service of Israel in exchange for thirty pieces of silver!

Beware the Corporate Takeover of Seed under Many Guises

Monopolisation of seed is not just a European issue but a global one, with international agritech giants buying out independent companies and leaving farmers with little choice but to purchase hybrid or genetically modified seeds in countries like the US. Monsanto bought 200 US independent seed companies over 10 years, with the corporation now estimated to own 23 % of the proprietary seed market (see [3] GM Crops Destroyed by Drought in US while non-GM varieties Flourish, SiS 56). A similar drive for seed monopoly is taking place in the African continent, with SeedCo, one of Africa’s largest home-grown seed companies being bought out by transnational corporations Limagrain, the biggest seed and plant breeding company in the EU. Limagrain is investing US$60 million for a 28 % stake in SeedCo [4]. SeedCo has sold 49 % of its shares in Africa’s only cottonseed company Quton to the Indian company Mayco, a Monsanto subsidiary. Syngenta in 2013 took over Zambia’s MRI seed, which is said to have the most biodiverse collection of maize seed varieties in Africa. South Africa’s largest seed company Pannar Seed was recently taken over by Pioneer Hi-Bred, a subsidiary of DuPont. These acquisitions of seed companies by a handful of corporate giants poses great threats not only to seed biodiversity, but also food sovereignty and people’s access to fresh foods, giving GM companies the chance to spread their patented seeds across the world.

Monsanto, Syngenta and DuPont already own 53% of the global commercial seed market and the following legislative proposals and treaties are set to increase their monopoly [5].

Fearing a Future Emergency, Governors Declare a State of Emergency

Eric Blair
Activist Post

When most of us think of a State of Emergency, we think of isolated natural disasters like hurricanes, winter storms or a flood that passes through. In those cases it's quite obvious when the emergency is over. But what if an emergency is declared for something that hasn't happened yet? How will we know when it's over?

Both Pennsylvania and Connecticut governors recently declared a State of Emergency, not because a disaster is taking place at this moment, but because bad things may happen in the future. This is an incredible development that citizens should be concerned about...

It’s longstanding. It’s institutionalized. It’s lawless. It has nothing to do with domestic or foreign threats. Or anything related to national security.

America’s only enemies are ones it invents. It spies globally. It watches everyone. It monitors allies. It’s for control.
