Norway Offers to Pay Refugees to Leave: “$9,300 Dollars And Free Flights Home”

Norwegian leaders have been promoting the idea that refugees will not be accepted, and that it would be better to leave with a significant amount of help.

A family with two children is eligible for up to $9,300 dollars – and free flights home, the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration told the media outlet. More than 900 people reportedly have accepted.

Montenegro invited to join NATO in dubious payoff

On December 2, NATO invited Montenegro to become the 29th member of the US-led military alliance. The Montenegro’s parliament in September passed a resolution by 50 votes out of 79 to support the country’s NATO membership. "Montenegro’s accession to NATO will be another important step in the Euro-Atlantic integration of the entire Western Balkans region", NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on the occasion. "And it makes clear that NATO keeps its doors open, to complete our vision of a Europe whole, free and at peace", he added.

Webmaster addition: The people of Montenegro are not happy about this, protesting and burning NATO flags!

NATO says won't send ground troops to fight IS: report

NATO has ruled out sending ground troops to fight against Islamic State militants in Syria, NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg told a Swiss newspaper, stressing the need to bolster local forces in the conflict.

"The United States has a limited number of special forces. In the foreground, however, is strengthening local forces. This is not easy, but it's the only option," he added

Stoltenberg stressed that the conflict was not a war between the West and the Islamic world, but rather against "extremism and terrorism".

"Muslims are on the front line in this war. Most victims are Muslims, and most of those who fight against the IS are Muslims. We can not carry on this struggle for them," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds comforting and reasonable, doesn't it?!?

But what if (even in a false flag scenario), Turkey claims that it has been attacked by Russia, and invokes Article 5 of the NATO charter?

There would be no way that NATO could avoid ground troops at that point, and off we go to a war with Russia.

Popular German Comedian Ridicules US Propaganda

This is taken from a very popular “fake news” German comedy show. The host is Christian Ehring.

This is very telling, because it illustrates two things:

1.Europeans are simply not buying US propaganda about the Ukraine. In fact, the propaganda is turning into a liability for the US.

2. Ehring very effectively debunks the following:

US claims that Russia fired rockets into the Ukraine. He points out, quite rightly, that this looks more like a government disinformation op than a serious allegation, eerily reminiscent of the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

US claims that the Ukrainian Resistance shot down MH17.

Western media claims that the Resistance vandalized the crash site.

Western media claims that the brutality on the Maidan originated from the police.

Dutch Politician Tells Turks: 'Stay Away From Us; You Are Not Welcome Here' (Video)

Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders, the most popular politician in the Netherlands, has told Turks “you are not welcome here” in a video that takes aim at Turkey's hopes of joining the European Union. Wilders, who is fiercely anti-Islam, has surged in public opinion polls with his call for the closing of national borders in the face of a migrant crisis that has seen hundreds of thousands of people, mostly Muslims, fleeing to Europe this year to escape conflicts and poverty in the Middle East and beyond. In his English-language video posted online on Friday with Turkish subtitles, however, Wilders told Turks in typically blunt fashion: “Your government is fooling you into believing that one day you will become a member of the European Union. Well, forget it.” “You are no Europeans and you will never be. An Islamic state like Turkey does not belong to Europe,” he said. “We do not want more but less Islam. So Turkey, stay away from us. You are not welcome here.”

NATO Take-Over: US to Deploy Its Military Hardware in Lithuania

At least 200 pieces of US military hardware will be stationed in Lithuania for upcoming drills with Lithuanian troops, the country's Defense Ministry said.
The ministry added that later in December, about 50 units of US military equipment, including Abrams main battle tanks and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, will be stationed at Lithuania's Mumaiciai district, as part of the so-called European Activity Set.
According to the Defense Ministry, a decision to store the US equipment in Mumaiciai was followed by the refurbishment of hangars where the equipment will be kept and the tightening of security of the area.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Syria - Ukraine - Albania: Is "Greater Albania" the next tool of the US and Turkey?

If someone naively believes that the the help of US and NATO managed to solve something or regulate things in the Balkans, then the is deeply mistaken. At first glance, the situation is relatively calm. However, smoldering embers can ignite a new fire at any moment... Firstly, there is external support from certain powers who are interested in an explosion... Secondly, Albania is an extremely “criminalized” state. The local mafia, based on close family ties, is now recognized as one of the strongest in Europe. Its main source of income is drugs. Albania is a transit point between between Afghanistan and Turkey and Europe and the USA. The Albanian mafia actively participated in the Kosovo conflict and has established links with many terrorist organizations, including the Islamic State. Lastly, Albania is a Muslim country. It should never be forgotten that religion, for local activists, is only a means to an end, and this is one which, as is known, justifies everything.

Moldovan parliament allows national army to take part in EU military operations

Moldova’s parliament has given consent to the use of the national army in military operations under the auspices of the European Union as provided by the association agreement of 2014. The parliament passed relevant amendments on Thursday. The opposition subjected this bill to criticism saying it violated the country’s neutral status established in the Moldovan constitution. "As for the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the situation is clear, since they are international organizations. But the European Union is a different thing, as it is a group of states. You have put an equal mark between them. Isn’t that a violation of the country’s neutrality?," Oleg Lipski, a lawmaker with the Party of Socialists, said. The opposition Party of Communists also voted against the bill, which however was passed by the majority of votes from pro-European parties. Under the constitution, Moldova is an off-bloc, neutral state.

RUSSIA THREATENS "RETALIATORY ACTION" AFTER NATO EXPANDS ALLIANCE FOR FIRST TIME IN SIX YEARS

As the war in Syria enters its fifth year with no end in site, it’s easy to forget about the world’s “other” proxy conflict, that which is still unfolding in Ukraine.

You might remember Ukraine as yet another example of US intervention gone horribly awry. Indeed, this was but another instance of Washington stepping in to support “democratic” protests on the way to bringing about regime change. Just three months after a dramatic visit to Maidan Square by the Senate’s favorite warhawk John McCain, Russian-backed President Viktor Yanukovych was unceremoniously ousted.

Unfortunately, the democratic utopia that America figured was inevitable didn’t take shape (just like it didn’t take shape after Gaddafi in Libya or after Saddam in Iraq) and now, Ukraine is mired in civil war as Russian-backed separatists battle Kiev’s US-backed regulars and a handful of nationalist militias.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bloomberg is lying outright in that last paragraph.

When Yanukovych was unceremoniously dumped last year, courtesy of the US, the IMF, and the Soros Foundation, Crimea realized that there was no legitimate government in Kiev.

Crimea then, in a free and fair election, asked its citizens as to whether they wanted to rejoin the Russian Federation; the citizens voted to do this, and Russia allowed Crimea to join the Russian Federation. It was clear, clean, and no "annexation" whatsoever took place.

Also, Bloomberg's alleged "fact checkers" (who must have been asleep when this story was vetted) missed the reality that until the mid-fifties, Crimea HAD been a part of Russia; it was annexed by Khrushchev, himself a native Ukrainian, as part of the Ukraine.

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.

Greek Defense Ministry confirms Russian Su-24M bomber was downed in Syrian airspace

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber was brought down by the Turkish Air Force in Syrian airspace, Greek Minister of National Defense Panos Kammenos said in an interview to the Mega TV channel on Wednesday, TASS reported.

"The attack (on Su-24M) took place in Syrian airspace. This is beyond doubt," he said. "The Turkish side knows that, otherwise Ankara would ask to invoke Article 5 of the NATO Charter, requesting the Alliance’s help."

"This is undoubtedly a military action in the territory of another state," Kammenos said. "But even more important point is the murder of the pilot, who was shot dead by members of the Turkish extremist group Grey Wolves."

Asked which side Greece should take, as a NATO member, the minister said - "the truth".

Head of French military intelligence on the real trouble with NATO

“The real difficulty with NATO is that the American intel is in preponderance there, while the French intel is more or less taken for granted, hence the importance for us to supply the NATO commanders with enough information of French origin.

NATO announced that the Russians were going to invade Ukraine, the while that according to our information at the DRM (Direction du Renseignement Militaire), there was nothing to support this hypothesis — we had in fact stated that the Russians had not deployed either command nor the logistics, that would permit envisaging a military invasion, notably field hospitals, and that the second-line units had been exhibiting no movement.

The outcome demonstrated that we got it right, since, if any Russian soldiers had been sighted in Ukraine, it would have been a matter of a pressuring maneouvre on Ukrainian president Poroshenko than of any prelude to an invasion."

Lebanese Official Claims To Breitbart: NATO ‘Okayed’ Turkey’s Downing Of Russian Jet

“The Turks cannot afford to shoot down a Russian plane, being a member of NATO, without asking the permission of NATO. They have to ask NATO. It’s NATO,” said Jumblatt, a member of parliament and leader of Lebanon’s Progressive Socialist Party.

Jumblatt is considered the leader of Lebanon’s historic Druze community.

“I know that this jet was shot down by the Turks and directly [by] the Cold War between NATO and Russia,” Jumblatt added.

Asked to confirm whether he was accusing NATO of approving Turkey’s downing of the Russian jet, Jumblatt replied:

“I think so, because such a major action cannot be taken on a local level. A Turkish level. Because so many times the Turkish airspace was violated. Now this is something else. It’s a new dimension in international politics.”

After all, this would be merely the first step toward full-blown asset confiscation, conducted so many times by insolvent governments throughout history, once the government cracks down on those who made a "mistake" in their asset declaration form or simply refuse to fill such a declaration, thereby making all their assets eligible for government confiscation.

Unfortunately the police lack the manpower to enforce the deportation orders, since many of them have been sent to conduct border security. That border security is also failing, since officers are only allowed to make spot checks, and can’t profile people by appearances. Even when they do successfully catch and deport someone trying to sneak in, their country of origin often refuses to let them go back home.
In other words, nations like Sweden have passed the point of no return.

Protesters of Moldova’s unification with Romania hold rally in Chisinau

Some 100 people took part in a rally supporting the Moldova’s sovereignty in the Republic’s capital Chisinau, the organizers said on Tuesday. The rally took place near the Romanian Embassy on the day when Romania celebrates the Unity Day in order to demonstrate the unwillingness of the Moldovans majority to unite with neighboring Romania. "We made contact in social networks and created the 'I want to live in Moldova' initiative group, uniting people with similar points of view," activist Tatiana Gogu said. "They consider Moldova is sovereign country that does not need unification with Romania." According to her, some politicians suppose Moldova is unable to overcome current crisis without the help of Romania, which recently entered the European Union. According to numerous public opinion polls, not more than 10-15% of Moldovans support the idea of their country’s unification with Romania whereas this project enjoys support from about 68% of Romanians.

Even the statement: “The first person who flew into space, was Yuri Gagarin” or “the first person, who walked in space, was Alexei Leonov”, will be taken for Russian propaganda... The Czech Republic is even teaching high school students (12-19 years old) how to spot and resist Russian propaganda. A draft directive and training course was spawned by a prominent NGO “Man in Need” (Clovék v tísní). As part of a project titled “One World in Schools”, the program slated for 600 schools in Bohemia and Moravia defines Russian propaganda, its purpose and tools, in five lectures corresponding to the modern issues it supposedly tackles. Each lecture includes a video or a fragment of a broadcast or movie, texts, learning objectives and a list of the basic concepts associated with them...

Iranian Supreme Leader Sends Crucial Message to World Audience on Terrorism

People at zerohedge are questioning the authenticity of this letter.

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.

Bankers Reap Forfeited Souls As Millions Turn to Prostitution: “Viagra Costs 4x The Cost of P***y”

At one level, it pure economics. The Greek people have been squeezed. Their economy has been sold at auction, and everything is breaking down. In tandem, Greece is seeing a spike in prostitution at such a skyrocketing rate and a shocking decline of human value:

Paul Craig Roberts writes:

The plummeting living standards forced on the Greek people by German chancellor Merkel and the European banks have forced large numbers of young Greek women into prostitution. The large increase in the supply of women offering sexual services has dropped the price to 4 euros an hour. That’s $4.24, enough for a cheese pie or a sandwich, the value that bankster-imposed austerity has placed on an hour’s use of a woman’s body. The half hour price is $2.12. They don’t even get the minimum wage.

Bankster Capitalism At Work

snip: The loans were made to corrupt Greek governments who were paid bribes by the lenders to accept the loans, and the proceeds often were used for purchases from the country from which the loan originated. For example, Greek governments were paid bribes to borrow money from German or other foreign banks in order to purchase German submarines. It is through this type of corruption that the Greek debt grew.

Big Oil, TTIP and the Scramble for Europe

If sanctioned, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would be the biggest trade deal ever seen. Yet the public continue to be kept in the dark about it. Large corporations have been granted privileged access to officials and have been allowed to shape the talks agenda from the outset. Throughout the process, organisations representing the public and civil society have been sidelined. The public has had to rely on leaks or resort to freedom of information law and heavily redacted documents to try to understand what is happening behind closed doors.

CIA AGENT: Millions have been spent to break up Yugoslavia

Robert Baer, a former CIA agent, says that millions of dollars were spent to smash the former Yugoslavia. When I arrived in January 1991 in Sarajevo task was to spread false information that the Serbian terrorists are about to attack the city, and thus to create panic, says Baer. Baer claims that then he and his colleagues received millions of dollars to influence politicians and the break-up of Yugoslavia.

- We bribed parties and politicians who incited hatred among nations - said Baer. He pointed out that a US senator during the war in B&H said that Srebrenica will be the main news on the world's front pages.

- He even told us that we have already established contact with the media - said Baer.

The former CIA agent, was arrested several times in recent years for revealing state secrets. He has published several books about the CIA, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
