A Baby is Born but BombsRUs Cameron's Christmas is Mercy Mild

Bush and Blair, the psychopathic pair, with many thousands sharing the same very dangerous personality trait, then focused on that cradle of civilization, a fine irony. It was in April 2002 when the blood brothers sealed the fate of Iraq in Crawford, Texas. (5) As always there was a pretext, 'Weapons of Mass Destruction'. Vilification of Saddam Hussein ran parallel.

U.S. Dept. of Defense: U.S. Taxpayers Spending $11 Million Dollars Per Day To Fight ISIL

The United States Department of Defense has published numbers of how much money American taxpayers are spending to fight ISIL in Syria and Iraq.

Belgium, Canada, Denmark, & the Netherlands Join U.S. Forces to Fight ISIL In Iraq

Americans generally don't think of Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands as helping out the U.S. in the so-called war on terror.But according to a press release issued yesterday by the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Forces and a large number of allies are busy wiping out ISIl forces all over Iraq and Syria. Oddly, Russia is not listed anywhere as an ally in the fight against ISIL in 'Operation Inherent Resolve.'

Since Christmas, US Cops Have Killed Twice as Many People as UK Cops Have In the Last 5 Years

In all of 2011, British police killed 2 people. In 2012, 1 person. In 2013, a total of 3 bullets left the barrels of British police guns, and no one was killed. In the last two years, a total of 4 people have lost their lives because of British cops, bringing the total number of citizens killed in the UK to 7 in the last 5 years.

Since Christmas, police in America have killed 14 people. In 1 week, American cops have killed twice as many people as the British police have killed since 2011!

But if we zoom out just a little further, those numbers become even more shocking. Since 1990, police officers in the United Kingdom have killed exactly 58 people.
Since the 14th of December, police in America have killed 60 citizens — It took English cops 25 years to do what American cops have done in the last two weeks of December.

Last Year Was an Epic Year for Cannabis – Here are the Best….and the Worst Weed Stories of 2015

Let’s face it: 2015 has been a bumpy ride across the board — government intruded into our private lives by clandestinely passing CISA and laughed in our face by passing the ironically-monikered USA Freedom Act; the Police State kicked into high gear, with cops having killed at least one person in all 50 states by the time Christmas rolled around; and the attack in San Bernardino codified the presidential candidates’ push for war, while threatening to further erode any number of liberties for all of us. And that’s just a taste of what happened in the United States.

In order to narrow focus sufficiently for the confines of a single article, the struggle for cannabis rights earned more victories for the people than ever before, though the State still managed to ruin lives in several stunningly unjustifiable examples.

Following are a mere five stories of the countless wins — and sadly numerous losses — concerning cannabis, that took place in 2015.

Top cop OK'd hefty payments to murderous snitch but says he didn't know of crimes

We don't have a country! We have a gangtry!

One of Chicago’s most notorious informants — who provided drug tips to the police while secretly killing and robbing people and doing drug deals — was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for his information with the approval of police supervisors who have since reached the highest levels of the department, records show.

Saul Rodriguez was a top snitch for the Chicago Police Department’s narcotics section between 1996 and 2001. Over that period, he received more than $800,000 from the department for his information.

Pope Francis On 'World Day of Peace': "We ask how long human evil will continue to sow violence and hatred in our world, reaping innocent victims?"

At Mass on New Years Day, Pope Francis said in his homily: "The fullness of time seems to fade before the countless forms of injustice and violence which daily wound our human family. Sometimes we ask ourselves how it is possible that human injustice persists unabated, and that the arrogance of the powerful continues to demean the weak, relegating them to the most squalid outskirts of our world. We ask how long human evil will continue to sow violence and hatred in our world, reaping innocent victims. How can the fullness of time have come when we are witnessing hordes of men, women and children fleeing war, hunger and persecution, ready to risk their lives simply to encounter respect for their fundamental rights? A torrent of misery, swollen by sin, seems to contradict the fullness of time brought by Christ. Remember, dear pueri cantores, this was the third question you asked me yesterday: how do we explain this… even children are aware of this."

“What is Israel supposed to do?

As for the biggest question, “what is Israel to do?” Israel is to free all Palestinian prisoners, repeal all the laws that give Jewish people exclusive rights in Palestine, repeal the law the prohibits Palestinians from returning to their land and allocate the billions of dollars that will be needed for paying reparations to the refugees and their descendants. Then, Israel is to call for free, one-person one-vote elections where all people who live in mandatory Palestine vote as equals. That is what Israel should do.

Sadistic Cops Make K-9 Maul Unarmed Suicidal Teen – Caught Planning and Celebrating It in Texts

Lemay’s mother had called the North Port PD when she learned that her son was apparently about to commit suicide. Keith Bush, the leader of their K-9 unit, responded to the scene, but not before telling a fellow K-9 handler to come join in the fun.

“On this day, before he or any other officer reached Jared Lemay’s home, Bush sent a message to fellow K-9 handler Michael Dietz: “COME GET UR BITE.”

Minutes later, records show, Bush messaged Dietz again: “IM GONNA TAKE UR BITE IF U DONT HURRY UP.”

Lemay, who was found unarmed and hiding in a trash can in his garage, was bitten in the face and back by Dietz’s dog, a Belgian Malinois named Cammo.”

Shock Video: Cops Torture and Sodomize Man in Public for Rolling Through a Stop Sign

Lee County, FL — A video uploaded to Facebook shows a gang of cops from the Fort Myers Police Department and Lee County Sheriff’s Office brutally violating a man on the roadside, after pulling him over for a rolling stop.

Screams of agony can be heard echoing from the trees as the man’s arm is twisted almost to the breaking point and his rectum is invaded by the gloved hand of a drug war enforcer.

The cops can be heard saying, “Stop resisting! Just relax!” as the victim continues to scream and kick in pain.

THE PENTAGON’S LATEST SCHEME TO KEEP NEARLY 2,000 DETAINEE ABUSE PHOTOS SECRET

For twelve years, the American Civil Liberties Union has pursued a lawsuit to force the United States government to release about 2,100 photographs of detainee abuse and torture in Afghanistan and Iraq, including inhumane treatment at Abu Ghraib prison. A federal district court ordered the release of the photos in March, but the government indicated it would appeal. Now, the Pentagon has “re-certified” the vast majority of the photos to keep them secret.

Bill Ayers Slams 'Criminal Activities' of Obama Administration

Beginning of the end for Obama politically speaking!

"I think we’re sliding down a very treacherous path," Ayers says, "and I think the Democratic Party is very much a part of that. It is a war party. The criminal activities of this administration are vast. Drone strikes, continuous war."

"We [the US] are the mother of the so-called Islamic State…the mother of that entity is the Iraq Invasion and the father is Saudi Arabia, which we just gave billions of dollars of aid to."

Israeli Army Admits To Using Pesticides As A Weapon Of War In The Middle East

By Amanda Froelich

It wasn’t too long ago that Agent Orange, a devastating chemical produced by Monsanto, was used in the Vietnam War to strip the jungle environment of its foliage and give the U.S. military an advantage. At the time, the effects of the toxic herbicide weren’t well-known, but it’s now understood that the chemical causes unspeakable damage to humans, wildlife, and the environment.

Once again, herbicides are being weaponized – but this time in the Middle East...

Turkey: A Criminal State, a NATO State

Let’s face it, Turkey is now a mafia state ruled by a criminal regime. It is also a NATO member state. Perhaps now the pernicious illusion of NATO as military alliance defending justice, human rights, and the rule of law can finally be put to rest. While the propagandists will continue the charade, Turkey has permanently exposed the US-NATO-GCC-Israel for the warmongers they are in Syria and around the world.

What Are The Chances For Peace in 2016? — Ron Paul

Each year more than one trillion dollars goes up in smoke. More accurately, it is stolen from the middle and working classes and shipped off to the one percent. I am talking about the massive yearly bill to maintain the US empire. Washington’s warmongers have sold the lie that the military budget has been gutted under President Obama, but even when the “Sequester” was in effect military spending continued to increase. Only the pace of increase was reduced, not actual spending.

“Zero Confidence”: 8 In 10 Americans Think Obama Is Losing To ISIS

Apparently only 2 in 10 Americans think the U.S. is winning the war on terror, and see the ISIS Islamic State as holding the upper hand. In terms of public opinion, it may as well be zero.

The hearts and minds have been lost – right here at home.

At least 67 journalists killed in 2015 because of their work

At least 67 journalists were killed this year around the world "while reporting or because of their work," one more than in 2014, according to the round-up published by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Tuesday. Syria remains the most dangerous country for reporters for the third year in a row. The Islamic State (IS) terrorist group is responsible for 40% of journalist deaths in the country in 2015, the report says. Other dangerous countries for journalists are Iraq, Brazil, Bangladesh, South Sudan and Yemen. Five journalists were killed in each of these countries due to their profession.

Zionism is racism: Notes from Tel-Rumeida, Hebron, El-Khalil

The Zionist state never intended to be democratic or tolerant. From its very inception it created racist laws and used terrorism to achieve its goals, giving its terrorist forces the benign name of “Israeli Defense Forces.” Its goal was and remains genocide of the Palestinian people and a complete ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and Israel has been dedicatedly practicing that for seven decades.

Bush cancels Europe trip amid calls for his arrest

Dec 26 - A planned trip by Bush to speak at the Switzerland-based United Israel Appeal later this week has been canceled after several human rights groups called for Swiss authorities to arrest Bush and investigate him for authorizing torture. Bush has traveled widely since leaving office, but not to Europe, where there is a strong tradition of international prosecutions.

Anywhere in the world that he travels, President Bush could face investigation and potential prosecution for his responsibility for torture and other crimes in international law, particularly in any of the 147 countries that are party to the UN Convention against Torture.

“As the US authorities have, so far, failed to bring President Bush to justice, the international community must step in,” said Salil Shetty.

Baghdad, Iraq – An Islamic State commander was killed in Salahuddin province and his body was searched. A cell phone retrieved from the corpse revealed messages from Turkish intelligence services proving the NATO country was providing security for ISIS militants when they traveled between Turkey and Iraq.

US Had "Secret" Discussions With Assad "Regime", Tried To Start Military Coup

Earlier this week, we recounted Seymour Hersh’s latest investigative report in which we learn that apparently, the Joint Chiefs of Staff worked to undermine the efforts of the White House and the CIA in Syria. According to Hersh, the Joint Chiefs passed intelligence to Bashar al-Assad through a network of intermediaries starting in 2013 in an effort to assist the Syrian leader in the fight against extremists backed by Washington’s regional allies in Riyadh, Ankara, and Doha. Hersh even goes so far as to contend that the CIA was tricked into providing inferior weapons to jihadists after the Joints Chiefs suggested that shipping arms from Turkey would be cheaper than going through Libya.

Washington Has Added Ukraine To The Long List Of Countries Destroyed By Washington

The criminal thugs who comprise the government of the United States have now destroyed Ukraine, adding another scalp to their 21st century collection of scalps from Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Yemen, Palestine, Lebanon, Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and large parts of Syria and Pakistan.

The American military/security complex has grown mega-rich at the expense of a vast proportion of mankind.

American “patriots,” brainwashed by the presstitute media, have supported the most egregious and least justified war crimes in human history. Among moral peoples everywhere the United States is regarded as “the Great Satan.”

Video: Days before Christmas, Bethlehem erects ‘resistance tree’ outside Nativity Church

The city of Bethlehem erected what they call a “Resistance Tree.” The tree, an olive tree which was recently uprooted by Israeli forces from a nearby neighborhood, was placed in the center of the main square, overlooking the towering Christmas tree and historical Nativity church. Instead of baubles and tinsel, the Resistance Tree was decorated with tear gas canisters clinking together like bells, photos of Palestinians recently killed or detained, Palestinian national scarves and sling shots.

FRONT ROW PROTESTER DISRUPTS TRUMP’S MICHIGAN SPEECH WITH “ISRAEL DID 9/11! FIVE JEWS ARRESTED ON 9/11 IN NEW JERSEY, NOT MUSLIMS.”

I spoke to Donald Trump a few weeks ago at a South Carolina rally about the undue influence of the Israeli lobby, but my camera screwed up & didn’t record the best part. That REALLY pissed me off, (you can’t imagine how much), and I was determined to do it right.This time, I wasn’t going to let that happen again. [See Trump Confronted On Dancing JEWISH ISRAELIS, NOT Muslims 12/12/15 Trump’s Secret Service Agent Says “Let’s Not Get Everyone Riled Up Okay?” in South Carolina..] Believe it or not, on Monday December 21 I actually scored yet another front row spot to see Trump.

6 US Troops Killed in Afghanistan Suicide Bombing, Official Says

A suicide bombing near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan killed six U.S. troops and wounded two other Americans and an interpreter, a senior U.S. defense official confirms to Fox News.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, which was the largest attack on foreign troops in Afghanistan since August.

DID YOU KNOW THE CIA PLANNED A MUSLIM INVASION OF RUSSIA?

According to its own formerly TOP SECRET Central Intelligence Bulletin, dated December 4, 1952, during the waning days of the Harry Truman administration, the Central Intelligence Agency had embarked on a program to foment nationalism among the Uzbek tribes of Afghanistan in order that it might spill across the border into the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic, a constituent republic of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This revelation means that the current attempt by such anti-Russian U.S. official and quasi-official intelligence policy makers, including former Jimmy Carter national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, hedge fund tycoon George Soros, and CIA director John Brennan, to bring about a radical Muslim destabilization of the Russian Federation is nothing new.

Winston Churchill told Lord Robert Boothby the following:

"Germany's most unforgivable crime before the Second World War, was her attempt to extricate her economic power from the world's trading system (ie: World-Bankers), and to create her own exchange mechanism (ie: "Honest", non-interest bearing money) which would deny "world finance" of its opportunity to profit".!!

Colin Powell's Former Chief of Staff Decries US Empire Project (Video)

Echoing General Smedley Butler's road-to-Damascus experience, former senior US government insider warns that the country's war economy will destroy its host. Continuing his insightful analysis offered in October RT and November Real News Network interviews, Lawrence Wilkerson, a former United States Army colonel and chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powel, expands this month on his exploration of the US national security state. In an in-depth interview this week with host Abby Martin at teleSUR, Wilkerson explains how “interminable war” is a goal of the national security state... "Today the purpose of US foreign policy it to support the complex that we created in the national security state that is fueled, funded, and powered by interminable war, and the ramifications thereof. That’s a sad commentary on what America has become, but it’s a realistic and, I think, honest appraisal of what America has become".

The Samson Option, by Seymour M. Hersh

To repeat, the Israeli nuclear-weapons program is fair game for investigative journalism. And there is no doubt that Israel’s intelligence services, and the government itself, like all other intelligence services and governments around the world, have engaged in skullduggery in the conduct of covert operations. Israel may in fact prove more journalistically interesting from this point of view than other countries because it probably relies to a greater degree on covert diplomacy and operations. But none of this translates into a license for well-known authors to publish outright inventions like The Samson Option.

Okay, but were the Russians taken in by Kerry’s performance?

Heck no, in fact, they acted exactly as one would expect them to act. They treated Kerry with the utmost respect, listened politely to everything he had to say, nodded, smiled and shook hands at all the appropriate times, and then got back to the business of bombing the holy crap out of the US-backed terrorists operating in Syria.

Perhaps now we know what was behind the timing of the most recent scandal for Bernie Sanders – concerning improper access to a Democratic database by members of staff.

Preemption and the destruction of all enemies is a recipe straight from the Clinton cookbook.

A Blind Eye Toward Turkey’s Crimes

Theoretically, it would be a great story for the American press: an autocrat so obsessed with overthrowing the leader of a neighboring country that he authorizes his intelligence services to collaborate with terrorists in staging a lethal sarin attack to be blamed on his enemy and thus trick major powers to launch punishing bombing raids against the enemy’s military.

Erdogan Charges Sarin Gas Smuggling Whistle-blower MP with Treason

“Chemical weapons materials are being brought to Turkey and are being put together in Syria in ISIS camps, which was known as Iraqi Al-Qaeda at that time.” Erdem noted that the chemicals used for the production of weapons did not originate from Turkey. “All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria,” Erdem told RT.

10 SECRET ARMIES OF THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

As more and more evidence mounts that the US government was secretly assisting the Islamic State, it might be time to point out a few instances when the Central Intelligence Agency created secret armies. The current theory suggests the US secretly supported the Islamic State so the Islamists would destabilize the government of Syrian President Assad. If that seems out of the question, remember the CIA once started a war over bananas… literal bananas. Cuba: Probably the best known secret army. Castro nationalized the assets of western companies after his government took power, so the US decided to overthrow the government of Cuba and install a puppet regime. As with most of the armies backed by the US intelligence establishment, it failed. Miserably. The Bay of Pigs invasion saw 1400 US-trained Cubans surrender to Castro’s forces within 24 hours.

Military Wants To Commit More Drone Murders (Just in time for Christmas!)

I saw in the news that the U.S. military wants to expand its drone “program”. Hmmm…Murder, Inc. is on the march. It was once said that the speed of human technology far exceeds the ethics that need to be investigated in its use prior to just bringing it in without questions. In other words, before anyone has even explored the moral dimension of drone use to kill people, it’s already been implemented and it’s a “done deal”.

The Curious Case of the Stolen CIA Files

A break-in targeting information about a lawsuit against the CIA is the latest in a string of apparently related thefts, data breaches and armed attacks against human rights workers who are investigating abuses committed during El Salvador’s bloody civil war in the 1980s.

Most recently, an unknown party broke into the office of Angelina Godoy, director of the University of Washington’s Center for Human Rights(CHR), and stole her computer and hard drive. These contained sensitive information and testimony regarding the Center’s ongoing investigations into human rights violations in El Salvador.

The hard drive also contained information about a lawsuit against the CIA that the CHR filed a few weeks before the theft. The suit alleges that the CIA — citing national security reasons — illegally withheld documents from CHR regarding US involvement in the country’s 12-year civil war.

Court Rules That Members Of Bush Administration Can Be Sued For Crimes During War On Terror

By John Vibes

Years ago, the case of Turkmen Vs. Ashcroft set the precedent that the Bush administration could be held accountable for the actions that it took to harm innocent people during the war on terror. However, the case has been in limbo for several years as constant appeals have been filed against the ruling.

Recently, The Second Circuit Court of Appeals finally rejected the appeal and ruled that people can, in fact, sue members of the government for enacting policies that result in trauma or injury. It is likely that this ruling sets a precedent for all members of the government and not just the Bush administration...

Yet you’ll see next to none of their own sons or daughters fighting in some far off war. The way our own government has used, abused and not supported our troops is despicable.

Israel’s Guantanamo: New Bill to Allow Force-Feeding of Hunger Strikers Held Without Charge or Trial

Netanyahu is pushing a new bill to allow the force-feeding of Palestinian hunger strikers. The prime minister is in good company.

American practices at the prison at Guantanamo Bay are giving Benjamin Netanyahu ideas.

Earlier this week, a draft bill authorizing the force-feeding of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners passed the first of three readings in the Knesset. Of the roughly 300 prisoners presently fasting in protest of Israeli administrative detention, at least 70 are hospitalized around the country, shackled to their beds. If the bill becomes law, dozens of them may be forced to undergo the procedure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is torture, pure and simple, which is why Netanyahu so loves the concept, and so completely backs this bill.

US AND TURKEY CAUGHT COVERING UP ISIS OIL TRADE

Turkey, US failed to notify UN Security Council of ISIS oil smuggling - Russian UN envoy Churkin.

Ankara and Washington contravened the UN resolution on financing terrorism by failing to inform the Security Council about Islamic State illegally trafficking stolen oil, Russia’s UN envoy has said.

“We’ve got serious complaints about the implementation of [UN] resolution (#2199, banning financing of the terrorist organization),” Vitaly Churkin told RIA Novosti news agency.

“Under Resolution 2199, adopted on our initiative in February, countries are obliged to provide information (about financing terrorists) to the Security Council - if they have such information. That means the Americans had to provide such information, and of course Turkey, which should have reported any illegal [oil] trade going on there. They didn't do it,” Churkin said.

A Lucrative Business: Obama’s Private Drone War

The War Party in Washington is hiring “civilian” contractors as pilots to take part in armed conflicts across the globe. Despite the devastating effects the drone program has had in the Middle East and North Africa, the Pentagon has announced its desire for a vast expansion of the drone war. It has also announced a $3 billion plan to double the number of drone squadrons to 16 for spying and military missions. It comes as the Pentagon has intensified airstrikes supposedly against terrorist targets in Iraq and Syria. Those strikes, according to transparency group Airwars, have instead killed some 1,000 civilians thus far...

Saving their sworn enemy: Heartstopping footage shows Israeli commandos rescuing wounded men from Syrian warzone - but WHY are they risking their lives for Islamic militants?

Under cover of darkness, an Israeli armoured car advances down the potholed road that leads to Syria. As it crests a small hill, the driver picks up the radio handset and tells his commanding officer that the border is in sight.

He kills the engine. Ten heavily-armed commandos jump out and take cover, watching for signs of ambush. Then five of them move up to the 12ft chainlink fence that marks the limit of Israeli-held territory.

On the other side, on the very edge of Syria, lies an unconscious man wrapped like a doll in a blood-drenched duvet. The commandos unlock the fence, open a section of it and drag him onto Israeli soil.

But this wounded man is not an Israeli soldier, or even an Israeli citizen. He is an Islamic militant. And his rescue forms part of an extraordinary humanitarian mission that is fraught with danger and has provoked deep controversy on all sides.

It’s Time to Stop “Supporting Our Troops”: Thirty Million People Killed by U.S. Since the End of World War II

As both a West Point graduate and critic of the American Empire, to me the “support our troops” sentiment has long outworn its propagandized welcome. US Empire has been using that contrite expression to brainwash Americans and justify its wars and violence for far too long. It sprang up during this last decade’s protracted war losses in Iraq and Afghanistan. Never was it ever heard during the Vietnam War when our combat veterans returned home feeling defeated and suffering from untreated PTSD symptoms, shunned by a nation that had bitterly turned against them and their war, particularly by their own peer group. Fast forward to four decades and three war defeats later, and our government is still sending Americans off to fight and die inAfghanistan (9800 currently) and Iraq (3500 with another 100 on the way), and now inSyria (50 just proposed with more on the way while war-hawk Bobbsy twins McCain and Graham are calling for 20,000 more troops in Syria).

German police found a WWII tank, an anti-aircraft gun, and a torpedo in a raid on a house belonging to an elderly man. The man’s property had been searched previously on suspicion that stolen Nazi art was being stored there.

The entire contents of the heavy weapons trove, which had been hidden by its 78-year-old owner, were from the World War II era. The biggest pieces of equipment included a 45-ton Panther battle tank, a 3.5 inch anti-aircraft gun and a torpedo.

Why is a Hate Campaign being Waged against Muslims?

Why is a hate campaign being waged against Muslims?

Why are Muslims increasingly categorized as terrorists?

Why is this hate campaign part of the US presidential election campaign?

Why is Donald Trump calling for police state measures directed against American Muslims?
The answer to all these questions is both simple and complex.

It just so happens that more than 60% of the World’s reserves of crude oil lie in Muslim lands.

Muslims are the inhabitants of the countries which possess the oil. And America’s imperial agenda consists in acquiring ownership and control over the World’s oil reserves.

If these lands had been inhabited by Buddhists, Western politicians –with the support of the mainstream media– would be demonizing the Buddhists.

Execution, as determined by “secretive processes, without indictment or trial.” Secret lists have been used to determine who can fly on a plane... but it won’t stop there.

Somewhere down the line, there is a deeper list, a simpler list... are you on it?

In 2006, the United States National Intelligence Estimate reported that the US invasion and occupation of Iraq made the problem of terrorism worse by creating a new generation of terrorists. And since then, top ranking military and counter-terrorism authorities such as General Stanley McChrystal, General Mike Flynn and George W.

The Heart of the Problem: Obama’s “So Much War”

President Obama has once again called on the US Congress to vote to authorize the war against ISIL – with no limits on its duration. This is while Obama has been directing airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq and Syria since August 2014 without Congressional and UN authorization. True, he has already sent lawmakers a draft proposal. It was nearly a year ago, but they haven't done anything with it, which corporate media say is the heart of the problem. Far from it, the heart of the problem is this: To date, Obama has never demanded that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other despotic regimes helping ISIL and Al-Qaeda shut down that assistance immediately or face severe financial and international consequences. He also has never explained what has to be done in Syria, such as promising that – after all manners of terrorism and extremism are defeated - the people of Syria would be allowed to decide who they want as their leader...

Tortured Palestinian prisoner found in Israeli jail with 28 cigarette burns on hands, chest and back

The Palestinian Authority’s department of prisoners’ affairs on Monday alleged that Israeli forces tortured a Palestinian prisoner charged with attempting to stab an Israeli soldier. Legal affairs director Louay Akka said Palestinian prisoner Wasim Marouf was covered with 28 cigarette burns on his hands, chest and back. Akka became aware of Marouf’s injuries while visiting Ofer prison where the man is being held. Akka condemned Marouf’s treatment, calling his injuries “unfathomable,” and those responsible “criminal.” “I don’t know the nature of the directives or training [the Israeli guards] must have received to become this brutal,” Akka said. Marouf also suffers from epilepsy, mental illness, and gangrene on the right side of his body. Recently, Marouf underwent surgery to have a diseased kidney removed. Prisoners’ rights group Addameer has long reported that treatment of Palestinian detainees by Israeli forces tantamount to torture is “widespread and systematic.”

The unavowable project for a pseudo-Kurdistan

Paris and London are multiplying their categorical declarations against Daesh, its programme of ethnic cleansing and its terrorist attacks. And yet they are preparing in secret for the ethnic cleansing of Northern Syria with a view to creating a pseudo-Kurdistan, and the re-localisation of Daesh to Al-Anbar in order to create a « Sunnistan » there. Thierry Meyssan analyses this plan, and underlines the numerous contradictions in the official discourse.

However, according to the experts of the Research Service of the Library of the House of Commons, this is entirely false. After a careful study of the legislation concerned, Arabella Lang states that the resolution in no way authorises the use of force, but enjoins everyone who has the legal possibility to do so to redouble their efforts [3]. This means that the resolution only applies to states which have been requested to intervene by Iraq and Syria.

The Buggering British Children network really needs to find some better crisis actors to play the victims in their next production. Frankly this bunch of amateurs are quite pathetic.

President Bashar al-Assad: “Britain and France were the Spearheads in Supporting the Terrorists in Syria:”

President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to The Sunday Times in which he said Britain and France have neither the will nor the vision on how to defeat terrorism and their airstrikes against ISIS will yield no results, but will rather be illegal and harmful in that they will help in spreading terrorism.

Obama: Terror threat against US has entered 'new phase'

More war! And you can have your right to keep and bear arms violated in a new way. A government employee puts you on the no-fly list and in effect you are a convicted felon without the slightest due process..

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a rare Oval Office address, President Barack Obama vowed Sunday night the United States would overcome a new terror threat that seeks to "poison the minds" of people here and around the world, as he sought to reassure Americans shaken by recent attacks in Paris and California.

He also called on Congress to pass new authorization for military actions underway against IS in Iraq and Syria and to approve legislation to keep people on the "no-fly list" from buying guns.

Flashback: Entire Police Department Files Restraining Order Against 'Scary' Black Muslim U.S. Marine Vet 9/11 Truther

I first met Mohammed Abdullah in 2008, it was quite a surreal situation. I had been running errands one day driving down Foothill Blvd. and saw this black man in Muslim attire, commanding and large in stature, holding up 9/11 truth signs and shouting to passing motorists on the street corner as cops circled him. So I pulled over and got out my camera, quick. The next year Pomona, CA police dept. sought a restraining order against Abdullah, banning him from passing out dvds about 9/11 and Iraqi war crimes to officers & City employees in front of the Police Dept. Truth activists from Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties rallied to the court hearing, in solidarity with Mohammed to defend his right to free speech. If the restraining order was granted, Abdullah would have lost his right to carry guns, which as an armed guard, would have destroyed his right to earn a living. The case had an interesting outcome.

Is this the first terrorist attack in Paris? This is the second terrorist attack in Paris? This is the tenth act of terrorism in Europe? Why does everyone care all of a sudden?" Interviewer: "Such a massive loss of life in Europe..." Kedmi: "And what about NATO bombing of Belgrade? When Bosniaks slaughtered Serbs, Serbs - Bosniaks, Croats - both of those, and Albanians added to the mess? How’s that for massive? And how did they react to to Beslan? Or to Nord-Ost?!" Interviewer: "Yes, Nord-Ost is very similar to what happened". Kedmi: "Yes, it is. But the reaction isn’t similar. The attitude isn’t. No one blames the French president for this.

Nightmares in Jalazone: Families deal with trauma following Israeli torture

Two weeks ago, I was incredibly fortunate to visit and accompany staff from the TRC on home visits to patients. Founded by Dr. Mahmud Sehwail*, the TRC is a leading organization in the fields of psychology and research on torture survivors in the West Bank. Their work largely focuses on ex-detainees, and how to heal and re-acclimate them to society. Guided by Dr. Rania, an experienced and thoughtful social worker, we were briefed us on the patients’ history and symptoms en route to Jalazone refugee camp.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the "new normal" for Palestinians, who can be arrested, jailed and tortured,indefinitely, with utterly no due process, by the IDF for only having committed the crime...of breathing while Palestinian.

U.S. First Shields Its Torturers and War Criminals From Prosecution, Now Officially Honors Them

As vice president, Dick Cheney was a prime architect of the worldwide torture regime implemented by the U.S. government (which extended far beyond waterboarding), as well as the invasion and destruction of Iraq, which caused the deaths of at least 500,000 people and more likely over a million. As such, he is one of the planet’s most notorious war criminals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the end of the day, his faux populism notwithstanding, Obama is just as much a compliant, on-his-knees puppet to the desires of those companies which make billions off war as are his republican counterparts; there is absolutely no difference here, and people need to wake up and realise this.

Obama had the opportunity to never allow this country to slip down the dark, immoral path of torture again by prosecuting the war criminals of the Bush administration; he simply chose not to, and that.... is the moral measure of this man, and the clear demonstration of the content of his character.

With wars continuing around the world, which the US government has generated under his watch, we have seen more death; more misery; more refugees; and more destabilisation of countries with the nerve to live over, or adjacent to, natural resources which the US government wishes to expropriate for American companies, and to be paid for only with the Petrodollar.

These are resources to which the US government, and their "pet"corporations who want to exploit these resources, have absolutely no moral right.

And Obama's favored "threat elimination" policy of extrajudicial assassinations,with utterly no due process, is creating generations of new jihadists, which guarantees perpetual wars in the future, with no end in sight. The military-industrial complex just loves it!

Congratulations, Mr. President, on being such a devoted follower, and implementer, of your predecessors' tactics and philosophies; it serves your cronies in business well.

But for all those who voted for you, on your platform of alleged "hope and change", the disgust, anger, deep betrayal, and the painfully clear understanding that anything you say can never be believed again, is palpable.

It was simply a sick joke, a sound byte as mantra, to be played on the vulnerable and naive; nothing actually changed in this country when you took office. The money junkies are still running, and gaming, the system, for their own profit, until it inevitably collapses under its own weight.

Manus inmates ask Turnbull to kill them

A majority of Australia's refugees and asylum seekers held in Papua New Guinea has written to the Australian prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, asking to be killed.

The letter by the 600 detainees held on Manus Island says there is no difference between them and rubbish, adding that they are tortured and traumatised as there is no country offering them protection.

The letter, which has been made public by an Australian lawyer, Julian Burnside QC, says they have recommendations for Mr Turnbull as to stop the waste of taxpayer's money which it says is ruining Australia's reputation.

It proposes that Australia could dump them in the ocean, using a navy vessel.

Alternatively, a contractor could build a gas chamber or the health care provider could inject them with poison.

The letter says this is not meant as satire but to be taken seriously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Indefinite detention? If these detainees are imploring the Australian government to murder them in whatever way the Australian government sees fit, where, please, is the humanity here?

And what scares me here, is that there may be some in the political seat of Australian governmental power in Canberra who may well very much warm to this "final solution" for illegal immigrants.

I was able to join Mike in Sydney about a decade ago, and never, ever saw this side of the Australian people; But then again, we looked like, and spoke (well, sort of ) like all the people around us.

And what about the kids, who wound up in these camps through no fault of their own? Are they just going to be boarded up and thrown away, along with their moms and dads?

As reported on 30 March, 2015 at theguardian.com/australia:

Children in immigration detention on Nauru are writing letters to the Australian government over plans to close the school they attend in the centre. The school for asylum seeker children inside the detention centre on Nauru is set to close. The building the students study in - within the Regional Processing Centre 1 camp - will reportedly be converted into office space, and a gym and recreation area for detention centre staff, while the children will be sent to Nauruan schools outside the camp. The students, aged between five and 18, are resisting the closure of their school, which is set to hold its last lessons for the current term on Friday. They have begun a letter-writing campaign begging the government not to shut it. Guardian Australia has been told the school will close during the next term, which starts after Easter.

The schools on Nauru, to which these kids are going to be transferred are an absolute joke; they are dirty and dangerous, and alleged the educational "norms" simply do not exist here.

The bottom line is, Australia is dumping and abandoning these kids who, absolutely unable to get off the island, will be cooling their heels in their detention centers for the rest of their lives, with no real education, and no hope for the future.

And there is only so much hopelessness that a human being can handle. And some workers have blown the whistle on just how conditions here are driving detainees to suicide. As reported at http://www.abc.net.au/news/ on 29 June, 2015:

Desperate and dispirited asylum seekers at the Australian-run detention centre on Nauru formed "suicide pacts", identified themselves as numbers instead of by name, and were treated like animals by some guards, according to accounts by two social workers who worked at the centre. "There was single adult female.. there was a group of teenage girls, there was a group of fathers, there was a group of mothers," said Natasha Blucher, a case worker who personally signed 10 reports alerting centre management to the pacts.

Were I an Australian citizen, I would be more than a little ashamed of what my government was doing here.

Benjamin Netanyahu while meeting at Finks bar in Jerusalem, a well-known Mossad watering-hole, while discussing the upcoming 911 attacks on America. He stated,

“If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it doesn’t matter what you do, America is a Golden Calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the World’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it’s god’s will and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again, again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”

FLASHBACK:U.S. wants to revive terror scare in order to keep up the terror war industry - FBI whistleblower

ISIS overseas,mass shootings here,all have the same author...The District of Criminals. Only by keeping the country in a constant state of fear and war can they keep and increase their power.
It ought to be clear that the same terorist tactics used by the district of criminals in foreign lands, is being used here to get us to give up our lives,liberty and property without a fight!

SE: To answer the question briefly, the ISIS is what is the U.S. media and the propaganda creators behind the media decided to create. I mean, tomorrow or 3 months from now we will start hearing another name, that we’ve never heard of, and within a month they can make that the world’s greatest or the most dangerous threat.

FLASHBACK:Government agents 'directly involved' in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Some of the controversial "sting" operations "were proposed or led by informants", bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

The lengthy report, released on Monday by Human Rights Watch, raises questions about the US criminal justice system's ability to respect civil rights and due process in post-9/11 terrorism cases. It portrays a system that features not just the sting operations but secret evidence, anonymous juries, extensive pretrial detentions and convictions significantly removed from actual plots.

Response: "Because of what they were sent to do, once they figured out what the real mission was."

I asked "Like what? What was enough to make the toughest US soldiers cry? Protecting the high and mighty Americans from the "terrorists"?

Response: "No, they were sent to be the terrorists and it is why they were sent that had them crying. Some of them were afraid that God would never forgive them, and, I think they might be right at times. There were some attacks on the US soldiers by people who do not want us there and some 'pay back' attacks after US forces had attacked them, but for the most part what I was being told about was the US conducting intimidation and terrorism operations against civilians. to get their oil and gas."

The main legal principles from the Nuremberg Trials were later declared general principles of international law by the United Nations: the “Nuremberg Principles.” With these principles, in 1950 the international community of nations demanded for the first time that crimes against international law should no longer go unpunished. From now on, no one should be above the law. The Nuremberg Trials and Nuremberg Principles thus laid the foundation for modern international criminal law.

Why did Turkey shoot down the Russian Soukhoï 24 ?

Keep in mind :
- The destruction of the Soukhoï 24 by Turkey was no accident, but an operation which had been planned well in advance in order to push Russia out of the area destined to be occupied by France, Israël and the United Kingdom. NATO, which had been following in detail both the Russian operation against the Turkmen militias and the Turkish attack, chose not to intervene.
- Far from folding under pressure, Russia has found in this skirmish both a motive and an opportunity to extend its military presence in Syria. In particular, it has deployed S-400 anti-aircraft missiles.
- The strategies of Turkey, which the international Press has been ignoring for four years, are now publicly discussed (pillage of Syrian factories, installation of training camps for jihadists in Northern Syria, supervision of the jihadists, support for Al-Qaïda, smuggling of petrol to finance Daesh).

What happens when the United States government does the following: Starts wars based on lies and fraud. Bombs and kills innocent people to “get” one or two men. Presents violence as the only solution to a crisis, rather than diplomacy. Offers violence against other nations as “campaign promises”. Cannot speak in the positive (“Good things we plan to do”) rather than the constant negative (“People we plan to kill”). Now then, what happens when you have a few generations that are raised with this type of leadership and then also teach it to their children on top of the government and entertainment media doing that?

Iranian Supreme Leader Sends Crucial Message to World Audience on Terrorism

People at zerohedge are questioning the authenticity of this letter.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-11-29/irans-ayatollah-pens-letter-w...

For those of a cynical persuasion, it’s difficult to ignore the similarities between Islamic State’s brand of puritanical Islam and Saudi Arabia’s propagation of Wahhabism. Put simply, indoctrinating the masses with an ultra orthodox ideal that breeds intolerance sows the seeds of extremism and on that score, Riyadh and Raqqa are really no different.

To the Youth in Western Countries,

The bitter events brought about by blind terrorism in France have once again, moved me to speak to you young people. For me, it is unfortunate that such incidents would have to create the framework for a conversation, however the truth is that if painful matters do not create the grounds for finding solutions and mutual consultation, then the damage caused will be multiplied.

Here is the full text of the letter:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

To the Youth in Western Countries,
Today, there are very few people who are uninformed about the role of the United States of America in creating, nurturing and arming al-Qaeda, the Taliban and their inauspicious successors. Besides this direct support, the overt and well-known supporters of takfiri terrorism- despite having the most backward political systems- are standing arrayed as allies of the west while the most pioneering, brightest and most dynamic democrats in the region are suppressed mercilessly.
The other side of these contradictory policies is seen in supporting the state terrorism of Israel.

FLASHBACK- REPOST:France and Israël launch a new war in Iraq and Syria

Looks like somebody is planning to carve the Turkey and stuff it with a little bit of Syria and some Iraqi Pie for dessert and make a Kurdistan out of it!

- The third Syrian war (since the 20th November 2015) was initiated by certain members of the the same group, this time with the aim of creating a new state to the North of Syria and Iraq, in order to apply a stranglehold on the Arab states who are resisting Israël [6].

Having realised that it will no longer be possible for them to act against Syria, the organisers of the war agreed to reboot and continue the programme which had already led to the creation of South Sudan in 2012. This project corresponds to the plan by Alain Juppé (March 2011) and that developed by Robin Wright (September 2013), which anticipated that after having supported Daesh in order to create a « Sunnistan », it would be neccessary to create a « Kurdistan » [7].

In all of the bloodshed, population displacement and terror that has accompanied the Syrian civil war, the least-considered party has been the Syrian people and their future.

The folks in Washington, Paris and Ankara might not like that, but they are not the ones facing a future of anarchy. And indeed, the more they stand in the way of Damascus, the more chaos they will help create.

Erdo?an accused the prosecutors investigating the M?T trucks of denying Turkmens the power to defend themselves. “Those [M?T] trucks were taking aid to the Bay?r-Bucak Turkmens. Some were saying, ‘Prime Minister Erdo?an said, there were no weapons inside those trucks;' So what if there were?”

Obama’s War on Truth

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

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

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

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

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

From Zundel to Topham: Zionist theatre

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