Canadian Academic Dr. Hassan Diab, Wrongfully Convicted for a Crime He did not Commit

We want to use the power of the documentary form to tell the story of our friend Dr. Hassan Diab [pictured left], a Canadian academic who is at serious risk of a wrongful conviction for a crime he did not commit.

Hassan was extradited to France in November 2014, where he is expected to stay in pretrial detention for at least two years. In France, Hassan is subjected to an unjust legal process where discredited handwriting analysis and unsourced intelligence are used against him.

We would like to make a good quality documentary for online sharing and public showings to spread the word far and wide about the injustices in Hassan’s case. We hope this documentary will help raise awareness about Hassan’s case and Canada’s unfair extradition law, stop the use of discredited evidence against Hassan, and prevent his wrongful conviction.

Hundreds of Ontario adoptions on hold amid Motherisk drug-test scandal

The Ontario government has ordered hundreds of adoption cases to stop moving forward while a judge reviews whether the children should have been put up for adoption in the first place, CBC News has learned.

The move has put as many as 300 families in legal limbo, not knowing when — or if — their adoptions will be finalized.

It comes in the wake of the scandal over the Motherisk drug-testing program run by Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. The laboratory analysed the hair of babies to test for drug and alcohol use by their moms, and the results were used as evidence in the cases of thousands of children taken into care by children's aid societies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, Canada implemented a policy based on a testing system that produced bogus results, and destroyed families as a result.

Whatever happened to making sure something works perfectly BEFORE using it on the public?

5th Toronto police officer now implicated in arrest probe

A fifth Toronto police officer has been implicated in the investigation into a controversial drug bust and alleged attempts to mislead a judge that led to criminal charges against four other officers earlier this week, CBC News has learned.

The four officers were charged Thursday with 17 counts of obstructing justice and perjury in relation to a case that ended with an Ontario Superior Court judge dismissing charges against a man accused of possessing heroin.

Canada artificially cries about cultural genocide of indigenous population

The Canadian Court of Human Rights ruled that the federal government violates the rights of indigenous peoples of America who live in reservations. The government "does not provide them services for the protection of childhood, even though such services are used in other regions of the country." Canada celebrates justice, but the Indians do not agree. Their justice consists in the return of the rights on land that had been taken away from them. At present, the indigenous people of Canada represent nearly 600 tribes who speak 60 languages grouped into 12 different language families. According to the 2006 census, the number of Indians in Canada made up 732,520 people, or about 2.8 percent of the population of the country... It took the commission six years to prepare the report. The main conclusion of the work is as follows: more than 150,000 people had been taken away from indigenous peoples in 100 years, CBC News reports.

Toronto film executive pulls support for York University film program over Israel mural

A Toronto film industry executive is pulling his company’s support for York University’s Cinema and Media Arts program due to a mural he said is “anti-Israel.”

“It made me sick to my stomach and very angry,” Paul Bronfman said this week when describing his initial reaction to learning of the portrait. “We live in an amazing city, an amazing country, and to have this happening under our noses is disgusting. It’s subtly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. It’s anti-Canadian.”

The mural is currently displayed in the York University Student Centre. It shows a person looking at a bulldozer close to a building while holding rocks. The person is shown wearing what looks like a Palestinian flag with a map of Israel without its borders. At the bottom of the mural, the words “justice” and “peace” can be seen along with other text.

REBUILDING AND EXPANDING THE NORTH AMERICAN RELATIONSHIP

A major priority for Canada’s new prime minister is to reset the relationships with both the U.S. and Mexico. There is a real opportunity for all three countries to recommit to building a North American community. This includes expanding political, security and economic cooperation, as well as greater coordination on issues such as energy and the environment. Further deepening Canada-Mexico ties is one of the keys to strengthening continental relations. The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which builds on the commitments of NAFTA could also help take North American trilateral integration to the next level.

And in 2003, you told me Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction.”

Trudeau’s Canadian honeymoon cut short by oil crash, economic woes

TORONTO: With growth fading, oil prices in freefall and a currency having touched a 12-year low, Canada's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces an early end to his political honeymoon, confronted by an economic slump with no easy exit.

While voracious demand from China for its commodities helped Canada escape the worst of the 2008 financial crisis, the communist-run country's diminished appetite and a global oil glut have turned into a massive headwind for Canada.

The parallel decline of oil prices and the Canadian dollar, which the central bank governor describes as following each other like "railroad tracks", is bringing both economic and political pain.

CBC retracts supplement report

Last fall, Marketplace commissioned lab testing for samples of fish oil, vitamin C and protein powder supplements to see if consumers are actually getting what they pay for.

Based on those test results, Marketplace reported that Emergen-C and two protein powders: GNC Lean Shake 25 and Cytosport Muscle Milk failed to live up to label claims.

However, subsequent re-testing of the samples has found that the lab results and analysis provided to Marketplace were incorrect, and that there is no evidence of problems with those products.

Every false flag in the making is detected ahead of time by somebody’s intelligence services

Every false flag in the making is detected ahead of time by somebody’s intelligence services—usually more than one country—because spying today is so effective and so universal. Officials in possession of this secret information often pass it on to the country that’s targeted, in the sincere belief that a heads-up will be appreciated.

But often the information isn’t welcomed—-because the fix is already in. Treasonous assets within the targeted country’s chain of command, who are prepared for the possibility of a leak, take measures to block the information from reaching those who might act on it in a meaningful way.

Pregnant Montrealer left to walk in cold after car towed

A pregnant woman who was left to walk in the cold after her car was towed says the officer could have treated her more humanely, in an incident being investigated by Quebec provincial police.

Laura Cerminara, who's 34 weeks pregnant, told CBC News she was on her way to work in St-Lambert on Montreal's South Shore on Tuesday morning when she was pulled over by police on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge.

'I said, "I have to go to work, and I'm pregnant and it's freezing cold out today."'
- Laura Cerminara

"He came over and said, 'You have unpaid fines,' and I said, 'I don't know what you're talking about.'"

Cerminara said she and her husband purchased the car in August, and it's under his name. She had assumed the registration fees were paid for a full year.

But police told Cerminara that her registration payment was six weeks overdue.

Russian Red Scare No Longer Works

The EU has no-one else to blame for its present stresses and strains but itself, owing to its craven subservience to Washington's reckless policies.

The American and British governments are launching yet another media campaign to demonize Russia, with tall claims that the Kremlin is infiltrating European political parties and news media. The dastardly Russian aim, we are told, is to destroy the European Union.

Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Washington and its trusty sidekick in London are desperately seeking to turn back the clock to the “good old days” when they could control their public through scare stories.

Canada Set To Unleash Negative Rates As Oil Patch Dies, Depression Deepens

This Wednesday, the Bank of Canada has a decision to make.

Canada’s oil “dream” is dying thanks to the inexorable slide in crude prices and as the IEA made clear earlier today, the pain is set to persist for the foreseeable future as the world “drowns in oversupply.”

“Lower for longer” has hit the country’s oil patch hard. We’ve spent quite a bit of time documenting the plight of Alberta, where job cuts tied to crude’s slide have led directly to rising suicide rates, soaring property crime, and increased food bank usage (not to mention booming business for repo men).

Real Time Currency Collapse In Canada – This Is What It’s Going To Look Like In the USA

Canadians took to twitter this week to share their collective horror over the rising cost of food. Cucumbers are $3 each. A head of cauliflower is $8. A large container of pepper cost $19 and some Canadians are paying $16 for a single bell pepper. A container of laundry detergent is $32.

This gives us a pretty good idea what would happen in the US, even if there was a minor shock to the value of the dollar. Despite the rising cost of goods and services, our currency has been doing really well on the global stage for the past two years. I shudder to think of what will happen when our economy runs into another recession, which we are way overdue for. When it does hit, the cost of our imports will rise the most, much like they have in Canada.

Ted Cruz May Not Be Eligible For President After All

Jan 17 09:29

Ted Cruz Just Got Blasted With Some Bad News That’ll Have Trump Saying ‘Told You So’

As GOP rival Donald Trump predicted, the issue of Sen. Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be president has now become a matter for the courts to decide, with the filing of a lawsuit on Thursday by a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

\"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.\" -- Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, clause 5

Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for President of the United States. He was born in Canada, of parents who were Canadian citizens at the time of his birth. Cruz's mother claims to have been born in Delaware. The State of Delaware claims not to have any records of her.
(The authenticity of the Birth Certificate provided by the Cruz campaign is now in dispute.) But even if genuine, it makes Cruz a US citizen, but not \"Natural Born.\"

Ted Cruz's supporters try to get around \"Natural Born\" by claiming it simply means any US citizen, an opinion even echoed at Wikipedia!

But if any US citizen could be President, then the qualifier \"Natural Born\" would not be needed (and is not present in the Constitutional citizenship requirements for Representatives and Senators). Clearly, to the Founding Fathers, \"Natural Born\" had a specific and obvious meaning, applied exclusively to the Presidency!

The Founding Fathers did not need to define what \"Natural Born\" meant inside the Constitution as it had been defined in existing legal theory in works such as \"The Law of Nations\" by Emerich de Vattel, published in 1758 and relied on heavily by the framers of the Constitution. \"Natural Born\" was already legally defined when the Constitution was written as \"born inside the nation.\"

The inclusion of the \"Natural Born\" requirement for the Presidency was proposed at the Constitutional Convention by Chief Justice John Jay, who wrote, \"Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen...\"


Click for larger image

The intention is clear that the Presidency not be open to anyone not born within the United States.

In addition, there are no less than four United States Supreme Court Decisions that reaffirm that \"Natural Born\" means \"Born inside the nation.\"

The Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)

Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)

Minor v. Happersett , 88 U.S. 162 (1875)

United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)

There has never been a United States Supreme Court Decision that ruled \"Natural Born\" as having any other meaning than \"born inside the country.\"

All of Cruz's supporters, including the corporate media, are demonstrating either an ignorance of the US Constitution, or an utter disregard for it. This tells us that were Cruz to become President, he would continue the long and tragic tradition of recent Presidents to ignore the Constitution to the detriment of the people.

The Constitution is the original contract with America. It is the rules by which We The People allow the government to act as caretaker of our National Sovereignty. If a politician does not wish to work within the restrictions and rules of the Constitution, the honorable thing to do is resign and find useful employment. If Ted Cruz's supporters wish to live in a nation not protected by the Constitution they are free to move elsewhere.

But under the rules this nation operates on, Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States.

The Top Forecaster Of The Canadian Dollar Sees The Loonie Falling To 59 Cents By The End Of The Year

Our loonie is heading for a record low with the central bank poised to cut interest rates again as commodity prices collapse to the lowest since 1991, manufacturing stalls and consumers remain buried in debt, according to the currency’s top forecaster.

The currency will fall to a record low 59 U.S. cents by the end of 2016, Macquarie Group Ltd.’s David Doyle, Bloomberg’s top-ranked forecaster for the Canadian dollar last year, said.

A 59 U.S. cent loonie would mean one U.S. dollar buys C$1.6949. Doyle said that once the currency reaches its record low, it will stay depressed through the end of 2018.

Canadians Are Panicking Over Food Costs After Currency Collapse

It’s no secret that America has a serious inflation problem. Though the Federal Reserve insists that our inflation rate is only at around .5%, we’ve all seen the price of food, rent, healthcare, and energy skyrocket over the past 10-20 years. However, this has been a gradual shift. Canada on the other hand, has just seen the price of every day goods rise precipitously over a very short period of time.

Thousands flying to Canada flagged for security checks by new system

OTTAWA — Canada’s new security system for scrutinizing people who arrive by airplane singled out more than 2,300 passengers for closer examination during a recent three-month period, the federal border agency says.

The Canada Border Services Agency says the travellers — flagged for possible links to terrorism or serious crime — represented a tiny fraction of the millions who flew into the country.

Still, privacy and civil liberties watchdogs want to know more about the border agency’s so-called scenario-based targeting system to ensure individual rights are not being trampled.

The agency has implemented the targeting system, already used by the United States, as part of Canada’s commitment to co-operate with Washington under the 2011 continental security pact known as the Beyond the Border initiative.

Counterfeiters perplexed by Canada's plastic money

Canada's plastic money is stumping counterfeiters. The RCMP estimate the number of fake bills passed on to retailers in 2015 dropped by 74 per cent compared with the previous year.

That doesn't mean people have given up trying to copy Canada's banknotes — it's just that even their best attempts to make fake cash are falling well short.

Regina Police Const. Scott Wolfe hasn't seen much counterfeit currency since the Bank of Canada introduced polymer money four years ago, but he did have a case last fall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Australia switched to polymer money a while back and had the same result. Other advantages are clear windows that make automated change machines more accurate in reading the denominations and a series of cutouts on the edges to make it easier for sight-challenged people to use. They also last longer.

Charter Rights at Issue in Fracking Supreme Court Case

An Alberta woman's landmark eight-year battle over fracking regulation, water contamination and Charter rights will take centre stage in the Supreme Court of Canada Tuesday.

Jessica Ernst claims fracking contaminated the water supply at her homestead near Rosebud, about 110 kilometres east of Calgary. She is seeking $33 million in damages.

Ernst is also taking on the agency that regulates the energy industry in Alberta, claiming it has denied her the right to raise her concerns effectively and is shielded by unconstitutional legislation that bar citizens from suing it for wrongdoing.

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the David Asper Centre for Constitutional Law at the University of Toronto have intervened in support of Ernst's position and the lawsuit could change the way the controversial technology of hydraulic fracturing is regulated in Canada.

The Surprising Reason Why Canadians Are Literally Cutting Their Money in Half

It was reported last week that Canadian citizens have been cutting their official government money in half and using it as a localized alternative currency. The currency is called “Demi,” which means “half” in french. The Demi currency is being used specifically in the Gaspesie region of northern Quebec and is actually accepted by a number of local businesses.

The founders of the currency have specified that the half dollar notes are worth half of whatever value the original note was intended to be. For example, half of a $10 bill is worth $5, while half of a $20 bill is worth $10.

The idea for the Demi formed from a conversation that Gaspesie resident Martin Zibeau had with his friends who came from areas of Europe where alternative currencies were being used in place of the Euro.

During the White House press briefing this afternoon, one reporter explained the fight between Cruz and Trump and asked if the president was enjoying the drama around Cruz’s citizenship.

“I don’t know if he does, but I sure do,” Earnest quipped as reporters chuckled in response.

Earnest then seemed willing to feed the narrative questioning Cruz’s citizenship.

“It would be quite ironic if after 7 or 8 years of drama around the president’s birth certificate if Republican primary voters were to choose Senator Cruz as their nominee,” he said. “Somebody who actually wasn’t born in the United States and only 15 months ago renounced his Canadian citizenship.”

Why is my (6 year old) kid on the airline watch list?

“Why is our (Canadian-born) 6-year-old on DHP no-fly list?” Ahmed tweeted. “He must clear security each time. He is 6.”

Khadija Cajee, his mother, says the family has faced “continuous delays” during travel since their son’s birth, which appears to stem from the fact he shares a name with someone on the watch list. The family thought their case was unusual — and isolated. But since Ahmed’s tweet last week, other parents have come forward to relate similar unpleasant experiences involving young children.

For Naseer Muhammad Ali, the security checks began on his first flight, at 10 weeks old, with a pat-down at a Jamaican airport en route to Toronto.

“She checked his diaper — like, patted down the entire diaper,” his mother, Khudija Ali said, referring to a security agent.

With almost $300 billion in debt, and almost 1 in 10 dollars of revenue going to pay interest, and already facing the highest tax rates in North America, The Star reports that Ontario officials are asking that 'patriots' voluntarily donate their tax refund or write a cheque to defray the province's massive debtload.

UN Resolution on Palestinian Sovereignty over its Natural Resources, Opposed by Israel, US and Canada

snip: The UN General Assembly reiterated the illegality of Israeli settlement enterprise and its monopoly over Palestinian resources citing the “detrimental impact of the Israeli settlements on Palestinian and other Arab natural resources, especially as a result of the confiscation of land and the forced diversion of water resources.” Water resources in the occupied Palestinian territory almost entirely under Israeli control under the Oslo Accords, and around 85 percent of water is allocated to Israelis, according to the Palestinian Water Authority.

Undercover Cops Pull Gun On Protester and Attack Woman When Exposed As Agent Provocateurs

At least four undercover police officers were caught attempting to infiltrate a protest this week, and one of them reportedly pulled a gun on protesters when he was confronted about his identity. According to The Link Newspaper, one Concordia student, Katie Nelson approached an undercover officer suspiciously and asked him about his identity, and he reacted by slamming her to the ground. The young girl ended up being hospitalized as a result of the attack.

Nelson and another protester by the name of Zachary Savard told The Link that one of the officers pulled a gun on them when he was confronted about being an agent.

“As we came to them, they just took a gun out, and said move,” Savard said.

Meanwhile, other undercover agents on the scene grabbed a random protester from the crowd and drug him to a parking lot where they arrested him.

Researcher issues 'call to action' to force release of hidden drug safety data

Dr. Nav Persaud, a family doctor in Toronto, asked and received thousands of pages of documents from Health Canada, and what he saw made him question the effectiveness of a popular morning sickness drug.

But he can't talk about it, because Health Canada forced him to sign a confidentiality agreement, and threatened him with legal action if he makes the data public.

Canadian officials confirm largest earthquake caused by fracking

When a 4.6 magnitude earthquake struck British Columbia on 17 August, 2015, many were suspicious the event had something to do with a nearby fracking site operated by Progress Energy Canada. Now, the BC Oil and Gas Commission has released a report definitively linking the quake to the underground injection of hydraulic fracturing fluids, making it the strongest known earthquake caused by fracking.

Putin Throws Down the Gauntlet

This isn’t a game, it’s a fight for survival; Russia’s survival as a sovereign country. That’s what the stakes are. That’s not something Putin takes lightly.

Would you be willing to defend your country against a foreign invasion?

That’s all Putin is doing in Syria. He’s just preempting the tidal wave of jihadis that’ll be coming his way once the current fracas is over. He figures it’s better to exterminate these US-backed maniacs in Syria now than face them in Chechnya, St Petersburg and Moscow sometime in the future. Can you blame him? After all, if Washington’s strategy works in Syria, then you can bet they’ll try the same thing in Beirut, Tehran and Moscow.

So what choice does Putin have?

Had I required the transcript in 3 business days the price would have jumped up another $1,500.00 bringing the total to $9,000.00.

It’s no wonder that the little guys and gals who get caught up in the machinery of Canada’s “Just”us system invariably find themselves in a position where it becomes just too cost prohibitive to challenge decisions that could, were they accessible financially, be amenable to positive change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is clear that the court that found Topham guilty is doing whatever it can to make it impossible for Topham to pursue a Charter Challenge (Canada's equivalent of a Supreme Court test) to challenge the law under which his freedom of speech was attacked. The price set by the Quesnel Court Registry is absurd in the extreme and was clearly decided on in the hope that Topham would simply be unable to afford to take the case any further!

PROUD TO BE A CANUK

The first military plane carrying Syrian refugees to be resettled in Canada has arrived in the country.

Welcoming the 163 refugees, new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country was “showing the world how to open our hearts”.

The newly elected Liberal government has pledged to take in 25,000 refugees by the end of February.

Canada’s stance on the issue differs sharply to that of the US, which has been reluctant to take in migrants.

Canada's maple syrup 'rebels'

Redheaded grandmother Angele Grenier doesn't look much like a criminal, but she is one of Canada's most wanted women.

And as such, she faces the likelihood of lengthy jail time, and fines of about 500,000 Canadian dollars ($368,000; £245,000).

Her crime? She's a self-confessed smuggler and illegal dealer, someone who sells contraband across province lines.

But what exactly is she selling that has so incensed the Canadian authorities, and seen the police search her property? Drugs? Guns?

Nope, maple syrup - the lovely, sweet stuff that you pour on your breakfast pancakes, or add to your biscuit recipes.

Defence argues RCMP entrapped hapless BC Legislature bomb plotters - could conviction be stayed?

While police forces in France and Belgium battle fierce ISIL attackers, the RCMP is facing a potential entrapment ruling that could free two jailed but hapless B.C. "terrorists" convicted in the 2013 Canada Day bomb plot.

And even worse, presiding justice Catherine Bruce ruled in a disclosure decision last week where the defence is requesting RCMP solicitor-client communications that:

"I have found that the defence has raised a prima facie case that the RCMP violated s. 83.19 of the [Criminal] Code by providing money, services, and accommodation that helped them to commit terrorist activities."

The Canadian model fighting ISIS in Syria tells us that they're easier to defeat than you'd think

Hanna Bohman has been fighting ISIS in Syria on and off for most of 2015, and she hasn't been impressed.

She said that as fighters, the Islamic State militants have "mostly been a disappointment."

"Their numbers don't seem that big and they're eager to run away," she told INSIDER in an email. "I suspect most of the experienced fighters have been consolidated in Mosul and Raqqa, and that's where the big fights will be."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ISIS is a bunch of actors playing at terror to give the US an excuse to make war on Syria's government. It's now documented that the US has been smuggling weapons to ISIS and Al Qaeda to keep them going. The real target is Assad and has been all along. Truth is the first casualty of war.

Meet the man who funds ISIS: the son of Turkey’s President, Bilal Erdogan

The son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say:

“We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

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.

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Manufacturing a phony caliphate

Carefully-orchestrated snuff films directed by media experts.

Image is the most important element of the vaunted but fictional “new caliphate”. This thing is largely smoke and mirrors: manufacturing a phony “caliphate” out of nothing but a misfit band of thugs collected from many disparate countries—all wearing matching black outfits and masks (so that you can’t identify ethnicity), driving identical shiny Toyota trucks by the hundreds, flying identical mass-produced flags and sporting slick logos—supplied by whom?
