Libyan torture victim wins right to sue British government in open court

A Libyan exile, who was allegedly tortured with the complicity of the British intelligence services, has won the right to have his case heard in open court, despite government attempts to prevent the case being heard in public.

Abdel Hakim Belhaj, and his wife Fatima Bouchar, accuse the British government of allowing the regime of former Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi to torture them in 2004, with MI6 and former Labour Foreign Secretary Jack Straw complicit in US-led rendition programs.

Payday loan brokers help themselves to UK savers’ accounts, customers outraged

Brokers linked to payday loan companies may be raiding the bank accounts of over 1 million Britons, with many being the poorest in society, the UK’s biggest banks have warned.

Natwest, one of the largest retail banking chains in Britain, said it was “inundated” with complaints from customers.

Victims claimed that brokerages, offering deals on payday loans – short term loans with very high fixed rates of interest – are extracting sums of £50 to £70 from savings accounts without informing customers first.

The Russians are coming! UK media hypes up RAF interception of Latvian plane

Two Royal Air Force jets reportedly threatened to shoot down a Latvian cargo plane, rushing at supersonic speeds to intercept it, after the plane failed to respond to air traffic control over Kent in Southern England and sent authorities into panic mode.

“I am instructed by Her Majesty’s Government of the United Kingdom to warn you that, if you do not respond immediately to my orders, you will be shot down,” radioed one of the jets, according to an audio recording circulating in UK media.

The incident occurred at about 5pm local time after the Latvian Antonov An-26 aircraft failed to make contact with air traffic controllers.

EU funding row sparks huge surge in UKIP support – poll

Support for Britain’s anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP) has reached a record high following Brussels’ recent effort to levy a mammoth £1.7 billion extra charge on Britain, a new poll reveals.

The results of The Independent’s ComRes survey, published on Tuesday, are a welcome development for Nigel Farage’s Eurosceptic party, which is aiming to secure its second seat in the House of Commons in November.

UKIP is also hopeful its first ever Police and Crime Commissioner will be elected later this week.

Thousands With Degenerative Conditions Told They Could Be ‘Fit To Work In The Future’

More than a third of people with debilitating and incurable conditions and are too sick to work, such as Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis, are being placed in the ‘Work Related Activity Group (WRAG) of ESA, even though their condition is certain to worsen over time.

Claimants placed within the WRAG receive less money than those in the higher ‘Support Group’, who are not required to prepare for work or attend Job Centre interviews, and face the threat of sanctions if they fail to comply with strict requirements. Some may have their ESA entitlement removed after only a year as the government attempts to “support people into work”.

UK online pedophiles too many to prosecute: NCA

Britain will not charge pedophiles that possess child abuse images because of the high volume of people engaging in such activities.

"Our responsibility is to focus on the greatest risk and tackle those people," he said.

Weaponized Ebola?

The US and UK helped its fascist friends in South Africa develop an ethnic-specific biowarfare program

The goal: To develop ethnic-specific bio-weapons to "limit" the black population.

According to one of the psychopaths who worked on this:

"That was great. That was the most fun I had in my life."

"Another country that had a population problem asked us to work on this." (I'm pretty sure that was one of South Africa's keenest allies Israel that he's referring to.)

From the book by bio-weapons expert Jeanne Guillemin: "The project‘s growth years were from 1982 to 1987, when it developed a range of biological agents (such as those for anthrax, cholera, and the Marburg and Ebola viruses and for botulinum toxin)..."

Rotherham scandal: MPs urge investigation into missing child sex abuse files

A full and urgent investigation into the disappearance of key child sex abuse files is needed to address public suspicion of a cover-up, the influential Commons home affairs select committee has said.

The MPs’ demand comes from their follow-up inquiry into the response of authorities in Rotherham during which they heard evidence that the files of a council researcher detailing the extent of suffering had been stolen in 2002.

The Commons home affairs committee’s report, published on Saturdaysays this was not the first case wherein there were allegations that files relating to child sex exploitation had disappeared.

"Members of the government and conservative backbenchers were instructed not to vote, which was a very cowardly thing to do,” he said.

Ebola screening at Heathrow is blasted as 'a joke' on first day as passengers arriving from Africa reveal: 'We could have walked straight through'

Britain's Ebola screening plans descended into chaos on its first day today after people flying to the UK from high risk countries revealed the checks are not compulsory.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said airline passengers from West Africa must be checked for symptoms 'to make our country safe' and warned the epidemic could be as deadly as Aids.

He also warned Britain should expect up to ten cases by Christmas as screening of passengers from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where 4,000 have died from Ebola, started at Heathrow.

But travellers at Terminal One this morning said the system is a 'complete joke' because they were either not checked at all, told it was optional or had to seek out medical staff themselves.

What we have are governments wanting to LOOK like they are dealing with the problem, ahead of actually doing anything.

Ambassador warns: Israel losing support in UK because of settlement building and Gaza offensive

British newspaper The Independent reported that Britain’s ambassador to Israel has warned that the Jewish state is losing support in the UK, blaming the summer offensive in Gaza and increased settlement construction in the Occupied West Bank. His remarks came as a former Conservative minister described the situation in one Palestinian city as “apartheid”.

The ambassador, Matthew Gould, issued the warning hours after MPs backed a motion to recognise the state of Palestine, albeit in a non-binding vote. Speaking to Israel Radio, the ambassador said the vote in the Commons showed that public sentiment was moving away from Israel.

Britain's fracking trespass law flouts UK citizens’ democratic rights – Naomi Klein

Recent legislative changes, which enable fracking firms to drill beneath UK citizens’ land without their permission, flout Britons’ fundamental democratic rights, author and activist Naomi Klein warns.

Speaking at an event chaired by Guardian columnist Owen Jones on Monday evening, Klein emphasized that the British government’s recent overhaul of trespass laws – orchestrated to make it quicker and easier for fracking firms to drill beneath Britons’ land – was fuelling nationwide resistance.

Speaking to an audience in London, the Canadian writer and campaigner said an underlying factor driving the anti-fracking movement was the necessity to defend democracy.

Michael Bloomberg knighted by the Queen - just don't call him Sir Mike

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire philanthropist and former mayor of New York, has been made an honorary knight by the Queen.

Mr Bloomberg, a well-known Anglophile with a £12 million house in Knightsbridge's Cadogan Square, will not be able to style himself "Sir Mike" because he is not a British citizen.

Farmers fear fracking could spell financial ruin

Farmers fear they could face financial ruin from government plans to allow fracking beneath their land without compensation, the National Farmers' Union has warned.

Ministers pushing for shale gas exploration cannot take the support of rural communities for granted and are turning farmers against the process by appearing to brush side their concerns, it warned.

The Government is pressing ahead with new laws that would strip people of power to block fracking beneath their property or land. It has insisted no compensation will be paid to individual home and landowners, because they should not be affected by the gas or oil extraction deep beneath them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nyagainstfracking.org:

As the State rapidly approaches the deadline to decide whether to allow fracking to go forward in New York, residents from across Pennsylvania came forward to tell legislators their stories. New Yorkers Against Fracking also released an ad, which will initially run in the Albany and New York City markets highlighting stories of dead cows and poisoned water. Since fracking began in states outside of New York, there have been numerous reports of water contamination. Studies link fracking-related activities to contaminated groundwater; air pollution; illness, death, and reproductive problems in cows, horses and wildlife; and human health problems. “These stories from Pennsylvania are very alarming,” said Dr. Sheila Bushkin, MD, MPH of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany. “The perspective of the gas industry fails to show adequate concern for the long-term health and quality of life of people. When you listen to the personal experiences of actual residents of Pennsylvania and other states where fracking has gone forward, you will hear stories of dead cows, pets, sick children, poisoned water and other serious health and environmental problems. These stories confirm our need for much greater research and evidence-based scientific facts.” “My story is not unusual,” said Terry Greenwood, a farmer from Southwestern Pennsylvania. “After my cows drank from a pond that was contaminated by frackwater, 10 of the 19 calves were born stillborn.” “The industry says there are no problems,” said Matt Manning. “Well when the industry came to Northeastern PA, our water turned black and started bubbling. Our kids would cough and choke in the shower. It got so bad that the state required the companies to provide us with deliveries of clean water. But that’s not a long-term solution.”

Actually, in the UK, all fracking should be mandated beneath the homes of all members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

It would be very instructive to see how well THEY like it, and what their health costs would be

David Cameron and Theresa May - Dangerous Nonsense

A bizarre passage, unnoticed in David Cameron's UN speech, could be the first signal of government censorship plans and may lie behind Home Secretary Theresa May's plans announced this week for a clampdown on government designated "extremists" even when they do not advocate violence.

Cameron laid down the new government line in his speech to the UN. "We shouldn't stand by and just allow any form of non-violent extremism". What on earth does this mean? UKIP? Stop the War? Surely one goal of democracy is to persuade potentially violent extremists to become non-violent extremists? And isn't it the role of a democratic government to stand by while the democratic process unfolds.

FLASHBACK - The Lavon Affair: When Israel firebombed U.S. Installations to make it appear attacks were by ‘Muslim extremists,’ and how the US media cover it up

In their 1979 book, The Untold History of Israel, Israeli journalists Jacques Derogy and Hesi Carmel relate that in 1954 Israel’s army intelligence section conceived a plan to attack British personnel seconded to King Hussein’s government in Jordan. The purpose was to sour relations between Britain and Jordan as well as between both Jordan and Britain on the one hand and Egypt, which would be blamed for such attacks.

Shortly afterward, the same Israeli army intelligence organization activated two networks of Egyptian Jews first established in 1948. These young people had been recruited in Egypt, secretly trained in Israel, and then sent back to their homes in Cairo and Alexandria to await orders to carry out acts of sabotage in case of war between Egypt and Israel.

Special Report: Scottish Referendum Rigged - The 'How' and the 'Why'

The change.org petition demanding a re-run of the Scottish referendum, "counted by impartial international parties", has now reached 93,000 signatures as incredulous reaction mounts to the highly dubious referendum vote. Even Ron Paul expressed extreme scepticism about the result. The British media, meanwhile, is having a field day mocking the viral video footage of suspect activity at counting venues across Scotland, laughing off the fact that the only international observers to report anything about how the referendum was conducted were Russian observers, and dismissing Scots' calls for recounts and fresh referenda as being "sour grapes" based on "conspiracy theories".

But are these 93,000 (mostly) Scottish citizens, and the thousands of Facebook users demanding an investigation, just deluded sore losers?

David Cameron’s war plans against ISIS sound a lot like Tony Blair’s in Iraq.

Britain is set to join the air campaign against Isis in Iraq, but, going by David Cameron’s speech to the UN General Assembly, the Government has no more idea of what it is getting into in this war than Tony Blair did in 2003.

Mr Cameron says that there should be “no rushing to join a conflict without a clear plan”, but he should keep in mind the warning of the American boxer Mike Tyson that “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”.

The Prime Minister says that lessons have been learned from British military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan but it is telling that he did not mention intervention in Libya for which he himself was responsible.

In fact, there is a much closer parallel between Britain joining an air war in Libya in 2011 than Mr Blair’s earlier misadventures which Mr Cameron was happy to highlight.

The referendum did not fail, it was stolen. There are photos of YES ballots on the NO piles. There are videos of ballot counters slipping YES votes into the NO piles and even filling out blank ballots to add to the NO piles. The counting center in Dundee was evacuated twice when someone set off false fire alarms, leaving the ballots and ballot boxes totally unguarded. Children as young as three were registered to vote and and because no ID was required, YES voters showed up only to find NO votes had been cast using their names. And there were no exit polls to confirm the official result.

Live news feed: The latest on the Scottish independence referendum

Rutherford said "Everyone here realizes just how big this is, and how much will change," our reporter said.

"This is much closer - the polls have significantly narrowed. It's amazing, in Edinburgh for example, you hear the Yes crowd everywhere, but not the No.

"The No camp is very much a significant silent majority."

Will they stay or go? Scotland votes on independence

Voters across Scotland went to the polls Thursday in a historic vote to decide whether Great Britain should be a little less great: without Scotland.

The northern region's 307-year-old marriage with England hangs in the balance, as polls show a tight race between unionists and nationalists, who argue Scotland would be better off with a divorce.

A massive turnout of around 4.2 million Scots, about 97% of eligible voters, is expected, and residents as young as 16 have been granted p

The REAL Reason Britain is Freaking Out About Scottish Independence

David Cameron and the British media have been freaking out about the potential Scottish independence.

They’ve blathered on about “history”, “common defense” and other red herrings.

But it’s really all about oil …

Specifically, if Scotland becomes independent, it gets to keep 90% of the revenues from its huge oil reserves.

A Public Bank Option for Scotland

To achieve true independence, Crane suggests the following, among other mandates:

Establish an independent Central Bank of Scotland.
Issue a new Scottish (Debt Free) Currency.
Settle any outstanding debt with new Scottish Currency.
Take Scotland out of the EU.
Take Scotland out of NATO.
Establish strict currency controls for the first 3 years of independence.
Nationalize the Scottish oil & gas industry.
Re-take control of the National Health Service.
Establish a State Employment Agency to provide work/training for all able-bodied residents.

Special Report: Scots in Their Own Words on Independence

Sep 17 07:33

City of London vs. Scottish Independence

Scotland has a long and noteworthy history of banking. Money, savings and investing is entrenched in the culture and society. Edinburgh is the fourth largest financial centre in Europe (after London, Frankfurt and Paris). Much of this reputation has arisen from its history of innovation over the last three hundred years. The Bank of Scotland, established in 1695, one year after the Bank of England by an Act of the Scottish Parliament, illustrates the prevailing attitude to the creation of money in that era. A list of banking innovations is a useful background of Scottish banking activities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Scotland will simply create their own currency and their own banks. Certainly Scotland will be far better off without a private central bank issuing all of their public currency as a loan at interest!

Laughing Our Way to Destruction

Here's Frankie Boyle explaining the advantages of Scottish independence: "Scotland would no longer have to invade places like Afghanistan for American interests. . . . I don't support America's wars. I don't even think they are wars. They're one-way traffic, mass-murder. There's never been a time when a shepherd has beaten a helicopter. You never switch on the news to see 'A shock result in Afghanistan today when a missile was destroyed by a wedding.' Because not only will America go into your country and kill all your people. But what's worse I think is they'll come back twenty years later and make a movie about how killing your people made their soldiers feel sad. Oh boo hoo hoo. Americans making a movie about what Vietnam did to the soldiers is like a serial killer telling you what stopping suddenly for hitchhikers did to his clutch."

Obama urges Scotland not to ruin America's 'special relationship' with Britain by voting for independence

Barack Obama tonight urged Scottish voters not to break apart ‘one of the closest allies we’ll ever have’ by voting for independence on Thursday.

The dramatic intervention, just three days before Scotland goes to the polls, will infuriate Alex Salmond - with the battle for independence set to be decided by the smallest of margins.

Up to half a million voters remain undecided - with concerns over the future of Scotland’s place in major international organisations like the EU, Nato and the UN still hotly debated.

I'll bet that convinces more Scots to vote for independence.

BEX ALERT - British jihadist medical student, 21, is pictured holding severed head while wearing her white doctor's jacket

A woman believed to be a British medical student who left the UK in order to join ISIS has posted an image on social media of herself holding a severed head.

The woman, who goes by the Twitter name of Mujahidah Bint Usama, claims to be a doctor for the terror group based in Raqqa, Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! They are really laying on the industrial strength bovine excrement right now!

This tells us they are not getting the traction with the public they thought they would with the first staged beheadings. So, if at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again.

Next they will probably gas a cute puppy, like they did to sell the second invasion of Iraq.

Islamic State Video Shows Beheading of Another Hostage

Islamic State extremists released a video showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines, who was abducted in Syria last year, and British Prime Minister David Cameron late Saturday condemned his slaying as “an act of pure evil.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if the beheadings are real (and there is ample reason to doubt it), we do not know who is doing it, only who Rita Katz and her SITE Intelligence Group (linked to US and Israeli intelligence) wants you to blame for it! SITE likes to brag that they are able to release the videos before ISIS does, yet they also claim to "find" these videos online on ISIS websites. This is a logical paradox with no explanation other than SITE Intelligence is itself faking the videos, and it would not be the first time they have been caught doing so.

What do we threaten the Scots with next? Exploding haggises?

Actually if I were Scottish, I would be voting ‘Yes’ just to spite all the people who are trying to frighten and browbeat me into voting ‘No’. Anyone with any spirit must surely feel this way.

If ever we do get the much-promised vote on EU membership, the anti-British side will use just the same tricks and smears to scare us into staying in this miserable liberal German empire. I only hope that, if so, we will have the backbone to ignore them and vote for our independence.

Listen to it – the poor Scots are threatened with currency collapse, bankruptcy, irrelevance and isolation. There’ll even be a frontier, doubtless with barking dogs, searchlights and minefields planted with exploding haggises.

Scottish independence, UK dependency

Tucked away in the Financial Times’ report earlier in the week was the giveaway. “Currency investors” would apparently be “particularly concerned by the UK’s persistent current account deficit if this were no longer offset by North Sea oil revenues.”

This is something of an understatement. The UK has run a deficit on its trade in goods every single year since 1983. We have imported more goods than we have exported every year for three decades. Including services and overseas earnings (the “current account”), the UK has run a deficit since the mid-1990s. Today, that deficit is close to record levels, at 4.4% of GDP.

'Scotland's what?' US caught napping as Scots prepare to vote on independence

From nuclear to Nato, an independent Scotland would have several policy ramifications, but the official US reaction seems to be: no response at all

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason the US Government is not responding is that they are trapped by statements and actions made in the wake of Crimea voting for independence, in which Obama prattled on about maintaining the integrity of national borders and aided the Junta in Kiev launch wars of aggression against Donetsk and Lugansk as well as trying to provoke war in Russia. Clearly any different reaction to Scottish Independence only underscores the hypocrisy of US foriegn policy.

Cameron: ‘Yes’ Vote Will Make Scottish ‘More Vulnerable to Islamic Terror’

As ubiquitous political tools go, nothing beats the old ‘terror threat’. Coming just one week after British PM David Cameron announced that due to the ISIS crisis in Iraq, the terror threat was being raised to SEVERE, Cameron seems to be threatening Scotland with a wave of “Islamic terror” if the Scottish dare to vote ‘Yes’ on independence from London.

Clearly, Cameron was beaming with confidence from inside the Welsh castle fortified specially for NATO’s annual chest-puffing photo session and circle jerk, so much so that he’s allowing the public to see his true colours. According the PM,Scotland will be more vulnerable to terror attacks if it votes for independence on Sept. 18th. Cameron’s justification for this precarious position is that all of us now live in a “very dangerous and insecure world”.

British PM Cameron, this is desperation on the cusp of madness, writ large.

Ten days to save the Union with Scotland

David Cameron and Gordon Brown are to spearhead a final 10-day scramble to save the United Kingdom, following a poll suggesting that Scotland is on the brink of voting to break up Britain.

Over the weekend the Prime Minister held crisis talks with the Queen at Balmoral after the YouGov poll put Alex Salmond’s campaign for independence was in the lead for the first time.

Later this week, Mr Cameron will give details for the transfer of more powers to the Scottish Government if it remains in the UK in an attempt to stem the growing support for independence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After centuries of betrayals and double-crosses by London, I doubt this last-ditch effort to reverse the tide of public opinion will work (but there is always election fraud).

Scottish independence will be a major problem for Obama. If Scotland votes to become independent and Obama doesn't declare war as a result, it hammers home the hypocrisy of his actions when Crimea, then later Lugansk and Donetsk did the same!

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

David Cameron warns UK will not rule out military action in Iraq

On Thursday (September 4), as NATO members arrived for a two-day summit in Wales, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he would not rule out any type of military action against Islamic State (formerly known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay David, if you really feel that way; here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane and we will call Iraq and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But we remember how we were tricked into the first invasion of Iraq with lies about stolen Kuwaiti incubators.

We remember how we were tricked into the second invasion of Iraq with lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons and your predecessor's 'dodgy dossier.'

So under the prudent assumption that we are being lied to yet again to trick us into a third invasion of Iraq you will understand if we choose to sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

Have fun!

British Gas, which supplies around 40 per cent of homes, and other firms are under fire for their costs at a time when the Competition and Markets Authority is holding an inquiry into the energy supply business.

Its parent company, Centrica, announced profits of £900million for the first six months of the financial year. British Gas customers are paying between £1.35 and £1.50 per therm.

British National May be Involved in Beheading of US Journalist in Iraq – Cameron

The alleged execution of US journalist James Foley, shown in an online video by the Islamic State militant group, may have been carried by a British national, who is yet to be identified, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced Wednesday.

“We have not identified the individual responsible, but from what we have seen it looks increasingly likely that it is a British citizen. This is deeply shocking,” Cameron said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First off, there are multiple reasons to suspect this beheading video is, like the stolen Kuwait incubators and Saddam's nuclear weapons, yet another in an endless series of propaganda hoaxes to trick us all into supporting yet another invasion of Iraq.

Second, one wonders how they are able to identify the man in that Hollywood-esque executioners costume as being British, without knowing his name.

Is this the start of a rationalization to send British Muslims to the gulags?

Petition Seeks to Ban Joan Rivers in Britain Over Gaza

Thousands of people have signed a petition to halt American television host Joan Rivers’ upcoming tour in Britain after her remarks about the crisis in Gaza, Al Arabiya reports.

According to the report, the petition was created by Dipu Ahad, a Labour councilor from Newcastle, and has been signed by more than 20,000 people so far.

The petition urges event organizers to cancel all of Rivers’ upcoming UK tour dates.

Rivers made headlines when she said “Palestinians deserve to be dead” after she was approached by a reporter working for U.S. entertainment website TMZ asking her opinion on the crisis in Gaza.

“They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead... Don’t you dare make me feel sad about that... You don’t get out, then you know you’re an idiot,” Rivers said, according to Al Arabiya.

Ahad said that Rivers was “not welcome in Britain.”

Simmonds had decided "some weeks ago" to leave but agreed to stay to chair a UN meeting on the Democratic Republic of Congo last Thursday, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office said.

Britain’s Israel Lobby, The Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) Pressures HM’s Goverment: Is David Cameron Complicit in War Crimes?

Is David Cameron’s refusal to condemn what is apparently a prima facie war crime by the IDF, in Gaza, worrying evidence that the CFI, Conservative Friends of Israel, (AKA the British branch of the Israel lobby) has infiltrated government to the extent that it now influences UK foreign policy in the same way that AIPAC in America determines the US foreign policy agenda?

Yesterday’s resignation of a former Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party, the talented, ex Minister of State at the Foreign Office, Baroness Warsi, would seem to indicate that such a situation does indeed pertain within the Cameron government to the obvious detriment of democracy; the adherence to international law and the Geneva Conventions and the sanctity of human life – in particular, that of the child.

UK activists shut down Israeli arms factory

For nearly a month, Israel has bombarded Gaza from land, sea and air. More than 1800 Palestinians have lost their lives and war crimes have been committed. To our collective shame, the UK government has not only failed to take action to pressure Israel to stop its massacre, but has refused to take steps to end the material support it provides to Israel’s brutal regime of apartheid and colonialism. When governments support crimes against humanity, grassroots movements must take direct action.

A group of activists from the London Palestine Action network have today (5/8/14) chained the doors shut of an Israeli weapons factory based near Birmingham in the UK and are now occupying the roof. As part of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) and in response to calls for action from Palestinian movements, we are demanding the permanent closure of the factory and an end to all forms of military trade and cooperation with Israel.

Britain 'attempts to censor' US report on torture sites

The government stands accused of seeking to conceal Britain's role in extraordinary rendition, ahead of the release of a declassified intelligence report that exposes the use of torture at US secret prisons around the world.

The Senate report on the CIA's interrogation programme, due to be released in days, will confirm that the US tortured terrorist suspects after 9/11. In advance of the release, Barack Obama admitted on Friday: "We tortured some folks. We did some things that were contrary to our values."

Now, in a letter to the human rights group Reprieve, former foreign secretary William Hague has confirmed that the UK government has held discussions with the US about what it intends to reveal in the report which, according to al-Jazeera, acknowledges that the British territory of Diego Garcia was used for extraordinary rendition.

UK Parliamentary Defense Committee demands NATO Prepare for Confrontation with Russia

The UK’s parliamentary Defence Committee has demanded that Western military powers strengthen NATO to prepare for confrontation with Russia.

The report by the cross-party group of Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat MPs complains that the “NATO alliance has not considered Russia as an adversary or a potential territorial threat to its Member States for twenty years” and has now only been “forced to do so as a result of Russia’s recent actions” in eastern Ukraine.

In the interim, NATO alliance has been weakened as member states have cut their defence budgets leaving it “ill-prepared” to face up to Russian “aggression” and potentially lacking the “collective political will to take concerted action…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has the UK's Parliamentary Defense Committee gone collectively barking mad, or are they suffering from SMD (Selective Memory Disorder)?!?

Let's take a look at the timeline here.

1. Ukraine's duly elected government was sacked in a putsch, and a Western/European/Central European Bank-enabled junta was installed.

2. Without a duly elected government in Kiev, Crimea had a free and fair referendum enabling to become attached to the Russia Federation.
Please remember: Russia did not ANNEX Crimea: the people of Crimea voted to rejoin Russia, a country to which it had always been attached until the mid-50s when it was annexed to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev.
3. Russia has done absolutely nothing wrong in this case; it cannot possibly be seen as the aggressor. There is no gathering of troops or equipment on the Ukrainian/Russian border, and OCSE officials are saying that there are no violations of the border from the Russian side.
4. The Western-backed Poroschenko, however, has been lobbing bombs on areas of Eastern Ukraine, and killing civilians. This is a war crime. He refuses to negotiate, or even hear their grievances. His military also has been lobbbing bombs into Russian territory.

The only "threats" Russia (and ultimately, China) present is economic. This is about preventing more trade the the ruble and the yuan, period, end of discussion.

A shooting war against Russia would be absolute, utter madness.

And if you want any evidence of "how well" NATO is doing militarily, all you have to do is look at their performance in Afghanistan, over the last 13 years and counting, and that should give you a clue as to how well they would do against Russia, which is to say, terribly badly.

The total killed in Gaza after 24 days of relentless Israel attack is over 1,400. More than 8,000 are injured.

On 30 July, a food market was bombed, killing at least seventeen people. This is mass murder on an industrial scale and deliberate destruction of the territory's infrastructure.

The massacre must stop now. If David Cameron had a shred of humanity, his government would be imposing sanctions and implementing an immediate arms embargo on Israel.

Britain’s Plague of Pederasty and Power

As the bombs drop in Gaza and in eastern Ukraine, another siege has been underway in Great Britain. A sustained barrage of a different kind of bombshell continues to rain down on the centre of power in Westminster…

An epidemic of paedophiles, or to be more accurate, of ‘Pederasts‘, has for decades, freely festered in and around the governing institutions and media and entertainment in the UK.

Past proponents of the sordid practice (image, left, of ancient paedohile folklore), like the part publicly-funded Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), were even paid to lobby for a more relaxed paedophile culture in Britain, including active lobbying to lower the age of consent to 12 years old. Many of those who were involved or helped to facilitate PIE’s presence in Westminster – are still in government, or quango organisations today.

Palestine solidarity goes mainstream in UK as 100,000 march in London

For the second consecutive weekend, tens of thousands of protesters marched through the streets of London on Saturday, 26 July, in a massive show of support for the people of Gaza and all of Palestine.

That support is growing fast — and public opinion is leaving the politicians and traditional media, still stuck in their backing for the colonizer, Israel, far behind.

We see those politicians and corporate media for the monsters they truly are.

Hundreds protest on King Street during Gaza demo

The police were out in force in the city centre today as hundreds of Gaza protesters clashed with campaigners carrying Israeli flags.

Tactical Aid Units were called in as Palestinian flag and banner bearers tried to boycott city centre shops they claimed are linked to the Israeli campaign against Hamas in Gaza.

Speakers in the Palestinian camp spoke out against the bombing of Gaza, hailed the protest as peaceful and not racist, and appealed to participants not to engage with any objectors.

Even child speakers were handed the loud speaker to appeal for peace.

Cameron claims export licenses allowing UK arms sales to Russia don’t breach embargo

UK Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain has not breached an embargo by selling military equipment to Russia, following MP demands to clarify the government’s position on UK-Russian arms deals.

The embargo was enacted “with immediate effect” on March 18 by then-Foreign Secretary William Hague.

Heated criticism of British arms deals with Russia emerged after a group of MPs revealed over 200 licenses allowing the sale of British military equipment to the Russian Federation. These revelations surfaced in a report published on Wednesday, conducted by four separate House of Commons committees.

Britain Buys Water Cannons; Fears Civil Unrest From Government Workers

he British government has just invested in water cannons because they are fearing the rising tide of civil unrest as austerity is forcing the reduction of state workers and their pensions. I have been warning that unemployment will rise, but this time it is going to flow more so from the state and municipal workers. In the UK, hundreds of thousands have took to the streets to protest against the austerity measures of the government. Prime Minister Cameron has no choice for this is the collapse of socialism. Those who think I am anti-poor or whatever, are missing the point. It is the rising cost of government that is out of control and NO LEVEL of tax increase can reverse this trend.

Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Toast with a Pint of Thornbridge Ale and Then Drink Until He Pukes

That up there happened yesterday in London. Similar marches occurred all over Great Britain. It's a strike and protest from anywhere between 500,000 and a million workers (depending on who's counting) in unions for teachers, firefighters, and other civil servants in response to the government's offer of a contract that gave them a 1% raise after wages were frozen in 2010. As huge trade union Unison put it, "The current government offer leaves most workers with pay worth almost 20% less than in 2010. Falling pay also means loss of pension for the rest of your life."

Tony Blair - a 'Peace Envoy' or an Israeli Ambassador? (must watch)

Tony Blair is not a Sabbath Goy, he actually works for Israel 24/7. In this shameless performance on Ynet (11/7/2014), Israel’s most popular media outlet, Blair misses an opportunity to communicate with Israelis and explain to them for the first time the context in which the conflict is taking place. Blair obviously prefers not to upset the Israelis. Bearing in mind the scale of the crimes Blair committed in Iraq on behalf of Israel and the Jewish Lobby, it is understandable. Israel is probably the only country that is willing to give him a shelter.

Files on UK role in CIA rendition accidentally destroyed, says minister

The British government's problems with missing files deepened dramatically when the Foreign Office claimed documents on the UK's role in the CIA's global abduction operation had been destroyed accidentally when they became soaked with water.

In a statement that human rights groups said "smacked of a cover-up", the department maintained that records of post-9/11 flights in and out of Diego Garcia, the British territory in the Indian Ocean, were "incomplete due to water damage".

Macmillan backed Syria assassination plot

Nearly 50 years before the war in Iraq, Britain and America sought a secretive "regime change" in another Arab country they accused of spreading terror and threatening the west's oil supplies, by planning the invasion of Syria and the assassination of leading figures.

Newly discovered documents show how in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria's pro-western neighbours, and then to "eliminate" the most influential triumvirate in Damascus.

The plans, frighteningly frank in their discussion, were discovered in the private papers of Duncan Sandys, Mr Macmillan's defence secretary, by Matthew Jones, a reader in international history at Royal Holloway, University of London.

UK urged by human rights groups to tell all on U.S. rendition flights to Diego Garcia

Human rights groups seeking to confirm the use of a British overseas territory as a US secret prison have uncovered evidence previously undisclosed to the government confirming that more planes were involved in the extraordinary rendition of terrorist suspects around the world than had been admitted.

Based on assurances from the US, the British government has consistently denied the claims. However, experts believe ministers’ denials do not square with the testimonies of several of those held by the US, including an opponent of Colonel Gaddafi, Abdul-hakim Belhadj, and his pregnant wife, Fatima Boudchar, who claim they were detained on Diego Garcia in March 2004.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to all world leaders: in light of the fact that the US government routinely lies to its own people (even from one department of the government, the IRS, lying to another, Congress), please be assured that you have been - and will be - lied to consistently by the US government.

"Assurances" mean nothing to these people; if you do not have the ability to verify what they are saying, don't believe those assurances.

Agents of the US government will say whatever they say to get whatever they want, then gloat secretly that they have pulled the wool over the eyes of their allies yet again.

Will there be blowback by the UK when this knowledge becomes public?!? Absolutely.

But what is worse, is that the United States of America tortures, which is absolutely immoral, illegal, by our own legal statutes, and demonstrates to the world that the US government defiles the Constitution and Bill of Rights when it tortures prisoners of war.

Such torture also demonstrates that the rule of law; the values of democracy; and morality are only observed when these values do not "get in the way of doing business."

But I would like to hope that those precious few adults in the bowels of power in DC understand the following; when the US tortures, it gives carte blanche for other countries around the world to torture both American military members, and civilians.

To those of you who have family or friends in the military, please chew on that for awhile, won't you?!?

Humankind has known, since the time of the Inquisition, that torture only gets the tortured person to "confess" to whatever the torturer wants to hear, just to get the torture to stop, but rarely achieves actionable information.

So if the American military and intelligence personnel understand this, why do they still indulge in this barbaric behaviour?!?

Because they can hurt people, and get away with it with impunity, which has to be one gigantic "rush" for those very psychologically maimed individuals who enjoy it.

Historians reveal secrets of UK gun-running which lengthened the American civil war by two years

New historical and archaeological research is shining an embarrassing light on one of the darkest periods of British foreign policy.

Investigations by a leading Scottish maritime historian have succeeded, for the first time, in locating the main secret British headquarters of the American Civil War Confederate government’s transatlantic gun-running operation.

Other research, carried out over the past decade, has revealed the extraordinary extent to which substantial sections of Britain’s business elite were working with impunity to help the slave-owning southern states win the Civil War – despite the fact that Britain was officially neutral and had outlawed slavery almost 30 years earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason Britain was assisting the Confederacy had nothing to do with slavery and everything to do with Abraham Lincoln funding the war with a government-issued currency instead of borrowing bank notes at interest from private bankers.

"If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." -- The London Times responding to Lincoln's decision to issue government Greenbacks.

In 1872 New York bankers sent a letter to every bank in the United States, urging them to fund newspapers that opposed government-issued money (Lincoln's greenbacks).

"Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers... as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country... [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

"It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

"Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler

The private banking families of Europe had been horrified at the upstart United States throwing off the slavery of the Bank of England, then darting to shut down the first two attempts to re-enslave them to private central banks (the first such shut down triggered the war of 1812 and the second the attempted assassination of Andrew Jackson).

The banking families of Europe saw in the Civil War a chance to end Lincoln's greenbacks and with a Confederate victory, bring the United Stares back into the clutches of a predatory banking system where all commerce must be carried out using bank notes borrowed at interest from the bankers; the very system the United States had fought a revolution to be free of.

"The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution." -- Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

At one point, both Britain and France considered invading the United States ion support of the Confederacy but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on.

Britain's gun-running to the Confederacy was never about the slavery of the blacks, but about the slavery of all people to the private central banks.

Iran, Britain Start Measures for Reopening Embassies

Speaking to reporters here in Tehran on Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham reminded that measures to mend the Tehran-London relations started with the step-by-step moves made by the two sides since last September when the two foreign ministers met each other on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, which eventually led to the appointment of non-resident charge d'affaires.

The spokeswoman expressed the hope that the two states would "promote their non-resident to resident charge d'affaires in a bid to facilitate affairs and start a new phase in mending their ties".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is not going to like this at all. Get ready for an Iranian "terror" attack (nudge nudge wink wink say no more).

BP to sign US$20 billion gas deal with China

P is due to sign a 20-year Liquefied natural gas supply deal Tuesday worth US$20 billion with China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC), said BP's head in Moscow on Tuesday.

"BP will be signing a deal with Chinese CNOOC. It will be a 20-year term contract for trading liquefied natural gas (LNG) worth $20 billion dollars," said BP Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley during a press conference at the 21st World Petroleum Congress in Moscow.

In recent years the growth in demand for natural gas has led China to become the third largest LNG importer and to accelerate development of its LNG. China consumed 161.6 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2013.

News about the deal highlights the country's strong will for greater LNG imports for its urbanization and industrialization without having the environmental impact of China's power generation through coal.

Royal Navy frigate intercepts Russian vessel in the Baltic after warship strays close to Nato-protected waters

A Royal Navy warship intercepted a Russian military vessel that strayed close to Nato-protected waters in the Baltics in an echo of the Cold War.

HMS Montrose, a Type 23 frigate, was taking part in a multinational exercise off the Danish coast when she was dispatched to investigate an unidentified surface ship picked up on radar.

Despite choppy seas and 30 knot winds, the crew identified the unknown ship as the 104-metre-long Steregushchiy-class frigate RFS Soobrazitelny skirting Danish waters as it sailed west in the Baltic Sea.

"The nuclear power Israel is endangering the already fragile world peace," he wrote. His poem specifically criticized Israel's "claim to the right of a first strike" against Iran.

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

Richard O’Dwyer, 23, a computer science student at Sheffield Hallam University, faces up to 10 years in a federal prison for operating TVShack for three years until December 2010.

Mr O’Dwyer’s mother, Julia, said her son had been “sold down the river by the government” in comments designed to embarrass David Cameron as he arrives in Washington for talks with President Barack Obama.

She warned that Britain’s extradition treaty with the United States meant American authorities could come for the young, the old and the ill “and our government is paving the way”.
