Palestine 1896

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel invaded Palestine under the slogan, "A land without a people for a people without a land", implying that there was no indigenous population in Palestine at the time. As this movie from 1896 documents, that claim, like so much else Israel has said over the decades, was simply not true!

ISRAEL & PALESTINE: THE MAPS TELL THE TRUE STORY

Israel Paying Students (30 pieces of silver?) to be Apologists for Israel

There are tons of rabid apologists lurking all about the social media platforms ready to do Israel’s bidding while the IDF commits one crime against humanity after another in Gaza. Go ahead and Tweet something honest about what is going on and you’ll see what I mean.

I wondered what motivated them, in the face of the undeniable, to continue their efforts to defend the indefensible. I should have known. I should have remembered. It’s money. It’s always been money.

College students are being paid to be online apologists for the barbaric inhuman policies of Israel and the IDF. The more lies they post about glorious Israel, the higher up the corporate-styled ladder they climb, looking to achieve the ultimate goal… a free ride in college… proving once again: it’s never too early to sell-out.

Students offered grants if they tweet pro-Israeli propaganda

In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences.

The students making the posts will not reveal online that they are funded by the Israeli government, according to correspondence about the plan revealed in the Haaretz newspaper.

Israel to pay students to defend it online

Israel is looking to hire university students to post pro-Israel messages on social media networks — without needing to identify themselves as government-linked, officials said Wednesday.

The Israeli prime minister's office said in a statement that students on Israeli university campuses would receive full or partial scholarships to combat anti-Semitism and calls to boycott Israel online. It said students' messages would parallel statements by government officials.

We call for a final end to the crimes and oppression against us. We call for:

Suspension of all free trade and bilateral agreements with Israel such as the EU-Israel Association agreement;
Boycott, divestment and sanctions, as called for by the overwhelming majority of Palestinian civil society in 2005

Fat cat bosses getting fatter: Pay rocketed 15% for top 100, report reveals

Bosses of Britain’s biggest firms saw their pay soar by 15% last year, a report has revealed.

The average FTSE 100 chief executive got a £4.72million pay package – taking two days to earn what a typical worker on £26,500 gets in a year.

The figure, up from £4.1million in 2012, includes pay, pension and long-term bonuses that were cashed in last year.

It came as millions of ordinary Britons endured pay freezes or pitiful wage increases.

Ukraine conflict: Ground forces 'storming Luhansk'

Government forces in eastern Ukraine have begun storming the rebel-held city of Luhansk with tanks, Russian news agency reports quoting rebels say.

Heavy fighting erupted as columns of government armour attacked from the south and west, rebel military leader Igor Strelkov was quoted as saying.

He said there were unconfirmed reports of special forces landing by helicopter inside the city of 425,000 people.

There was no immediate confirmation from Kiev but bloggers report fighting.

Pro-Russian separatist rebels have been fighting the government in Kiev since declaring independence in Luhansk and the neighbouring region of Donetsk in April.
'Seventy tanks'

"Heavy fighting is under way on the outskirts of Luhansk," Strelkov told Ria-Novosti news agency.

"The enemy has thrown around 70 tanks into the battle in two compact groups of armour. There is as yet unconfirmed information about a helicopter landing of enemy special forces in the city itself."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The number of civilian casualties being created by these military strikes doesn't seem to phase Poroschenko one bit; nor does he seem concerned that the killing of non-combatants is a war crime.

US to build mysterious ‘Site 911? in Israel

The US Army Corps of Engineers plans to supervise construction of a five-story underground facility for an Israel Defense Forces complex, oddly named “Site 911,” at an Israeli Air Force base near Tel Aviv.

What’s the purpose of Site 911? I asked the Pentagon on Tuesday, and the Corps on Wednesday said that only an Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman could provide an answer.

That sounds like a secure command center. The purpose of Site 911 is far less clear.

Excerpts from the Exclusive PRESS TV interview with Bashar al-Jaafari,Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations:

There is an awakening in the west he said, but a very shy awakening and people are aware that there is something wrong in the calculations of the American Administration…

You (President Obama) cannot on the one hand pledge Five hundred million dollars to help the so-called “moderate” Syrian opposition and on the other hand two days later state that the coalition is not a reliable political force. This contradiction speaks for itself he stressed.

There is no armed moderate opposition in Syria. Arming terrorists in Syria, is like arming terrorists in Iraq, or arming terrorists in Libya or Egypt or elsewhere.

Now, please imagine, for one second, that this was your kid you were about to bury.

Veterans Affairs officials claim agency cannot revoke bonuses, contradicting earlier statements to congressional committee

Bonuses paid to top executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs who committed misconduct cannot be rescinded, an agency official testified Friday, in direct contradiction to what he told a different panel less than a month ago.

Samuel Retherford, principal deputy assistant secretary for human resources at the veterans' agency, was asked directly whether bonuses paid to senior executives who created phony medical appointment lists could be rescinded.

“Currently we do not have the authority to go back and rescind an award,” Retherford told a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee Friday.

Last month Retherford told the House Veterans' Affairs Committee staff that bonuses could be rescinded for one year after being paid.

1 killed, 2 injured: Russia vows response to Ukraine shelling Russian city

An artillery shell from Ukraine has hit a private house in the Rostov region of Russia, killing a citizen and leaving two more injured. The Russian Foreign Ministry promises heavy consequences.

Reportedly up to six mortar shells exploded on Sunday in the small Russian town of Donetsk, which has the same name as the Ukrainian city and is situated right on the Ukrainian border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question, which every thinking person on this planet should be thinking right now is, was this just the action of undisciplined Ukrainian troops, or, if not, why does Poroschenko believes he can do this with impunity, and get away with it?!?

Have his Western enablers promised NATO, EU,and US troops if he gets into a shooting confrontation with Russia, which will be engineered in such a way that it is made to look like Russia is the aggressor?!?

And if this sounds crazy to you, please remember that there is a bill in Committee to reinstate the draft in this country.
Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced legislation on Friday that would reintroduce the draft and would require all women to register for the Selective Service. These two bills aim to challenge the decisions that are made to send our troops into harm's way. Ten years ago on February 15, 2003, fifteen million people across 800 cities protested the invasion of Iraq, making it the largest antiwar rally in history.

This does not augur well for peace in the region, or the world.

Facts All US Citizens Need to Know About Israel and Palestine

Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.

Israeli commandos raid Gaza beach as deadly air assault continues

Israeli naval commandos have launched an early morning raid on a beach in the north of Gaza City, as the coastal enclave suffered the bloodiest day yet of the six-day Israeli assault, with 54 Palestinians reported killed.

The raid came amid continuing speculation that Israel would launch a ground offensive in Gaza, a move likely to sharply increase the number of civilian casualties. So far, 166 people have been killed including 30 children, according to Gaza's health ministry.

In the worst single incident of the conflict so far, 22 people were killed and 45 injured when two large Israeli bombs slammed into a house in the Tuffah neighbourhood of Gaza City where the city's chief of police, Tayseer Batsh, was sheltering.

Most of the injured were returning home from a mosque when they were caught by shrapnel from the blast.

Meanwhile, militants in the Islamist-ruled Gaza Strip kept up rocket salvoes deep into Israel.

Brisbane hits coldest temperature in 103 years

If you are lucky enough to be reading this from the comfort of your blankets, it might be best to stay there, as Brisbane has hit its coldest temperatures in 103 years.

Not since July 28 1911 has Brisbane felt this cold, getting down to a brisk 2.6C at 6.41am.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Earth is headed into a severe cooling period, a new "Little Ice Age." Now, setting aside greed of the Carbonazis who are still pushing human-caused global warming as a get-rich-quick scheme, there are two other aspects to worry about.

We are headed into another brutal winter, which means America's homeless are going to be freezing to death in the streets, while Obama's immigration plan will be paying people to take in the illegal immigrants.

Second, the US is still pushing forward trying to escalate WW3 into a full-on military conflict which will in all probability end in the exchange of nuclear weapons. The addition of a "Nuclear winter" to an already cooling world could well plunge the planet into a true ice age.

John Pilger: In Ukraine, the US is dragging us towards war with Russia

Russian-speaking Ukrainians are fighting for survival. When Putin announced the withdrawal of Russian troops from the border, the Kiev junta's defence secretary, Andriy Parubiy – a founding member of the fascist Svoboda party – boasted that attacks on "insurgents" would continue. In Orwellian style, propaganda in the west has inverted this to Moscow "trying to orchestrate conflict and provocation", according to William Hague. His cynicism is matched by Obama's grotesque congratulations to the coup junta on its "remarkable restraint" after the Odessa massacre. The junta, says Obama, is "duly elected". As Henry Kissinger once said: "It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but what is perceived to be true."

Dark Secrets of Westminster: Challenging British Elite Paedophile ‘Ring of Silence’

It is one of the most heinous and nasty crimes imaginable, yet, it’s been sanctioned and protected at the highest levels of the police, judiciary, corporations and in politics. It is also one of the most effective methods used to control politicians and bureaucrats through institutionalised blackmail and coercion.

Iran warns it is ready to walk away from nuclear talks

Iran's chief negotiator in nuclear talks in Vienna warned Saturday that Tehran is ready to walk away if "excessive" Western demands cause a failure, a day before foreign ministers try to inject momentum. Eight days before a deadline for a deal, Abbas Araqchi said however that he hoped that the attendance from Sunday of foreign ministers including US Secretary of State John Kerry would help overcome "deep differences" that remain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, of course, what the US and Israel have wanted all along, and they have been playing this cute game called "Just one more thing." It goes like this. As soon as an agreement is about to be reached, the US says, "Just one more thing." Then a new agreement is put together and just as it is ready, the US again says, "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing." Then "Just one more thing."

Finally the other party, in this case Iran, realizes that the US is not bargaining in good faith and quits, allowing the US to claim the other side is being unreasonable and walked away from negotiations! Because the US and Israel do not want peace with Iran (any more than Israel wants peace with the Palestinians). They want war and to make it look like the other side is to blame for it.

In Baghdad, middle-class Sunnis say they prefer militants to Maliki

The Sunni worshipers who visit the main mosque in this relatively affluent neighborhood of west Baghdad are a far cry from Islamist extremists.

“We are intellectuals,” the mosque’s imam, Aday Moussa, said of a group that includes doctors, professors — and, especially, former members of Saddam Hussein’s army and security services.

The worshipers and other Sunnis interviewed in Baghdad said they have little affinity for the al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State that routed Iraqi forces last month and declared a “caliphate” across a vast swath of the country.

But as the militants take aim at Iraq’s Shiite-dominated government, these educated, professional Sunnis leave no doubt that their sympathies lie with the insurgents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Baghdad falls (or perhaps, more accurately, when Baghdad falls), the US government will have lost Iraq twice militarily, and once economically, because who the oil gets sold to, or using what currency to buy it, will no longer be under the US government's control.

Naked selfies extracted from 'factory reset' phones

Experts have warned that the only way to completely delete data is to "destroy your phone".

Most smartphones come with a "factory reset" option, which is designed to wipe and reset the device, returning it to its original system state.

However, Avast has discovered that some older smartphones only erase the indexing of the data and not the data itself, which means pictures, emails and text messages can be recovered relatively easily by using standard forensic tools that anyone can buy and download.

The company claims that of 40,000 stored photos extracted from 20 phones purchased from eBay, more than 750 were of women in various stages of undress, along with 250 selfies of "what appears to be the previous owner's manhood".

There was an additional 1,500 family photos of children, 1,000 Google searches, 750 emails and text messages and 250 contact names and email addresses.

Thousands flee Gaza as Israel ramps up offensive

Thousands of residents fled northern Gaza on Sunday at the urging of the Israeli military as its ground troops briefly crossed the border on a mission to destroy a launching site.

The tumult came as the death toll from Israel's six-day Operation Protective Edge offensive rose to more than 160, with more than 1,000 injured, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

"Civilians are requested to evacuate their residences immediately for their own safety," the Israeli leaflets dropped by air warned. They listed specific areas that would "prove to be most dangerous."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF would not be ordering Gaza residents to evacuate, were a ground invasion not imminent.

But the title to this article is completely disingenuous in the extreme; with Egypt having closed their borders to Gaza, Gazans have absolutely no where to go. They are stuck, like sitting ducks, waiting for the Israeli carnage to continue, and have no defenses against it whatsoever.

Israeli troops launch first ground attack on Gaza

Israeli marines clashed with Hamas gunmen Sunday in the first reported ground incursion in the latest Gaza offensive. It follows a heavy night of violence during which 18 members of the same family were killed in the deadliest single attack on the besieged enclave in days of shelling.

A Palestinian woman and a girl, aged 3, were killed in Israeli raids early on Sunday, Gaza's Health Ministry said. Hours earlier, the ministry said the house of Gaza's police chief was bombed by the air, resulting in many casualties.

The Israeli army said at least four soldiers were "lightly injured" on Sunday, as they attacked a site in northern Gaza the army said was being used to launch long-range rockets.

Giving details of the naval commando operation early on Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said four members of the force were wounded in exchanges of fire with Hamas fighters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I fully expect the IDF to begin a total, scorched-earth, ground invasion of Gaza.

When this is all over, the Gazans who have been displaced by the bombings, will have no homes to go back to.

Ukraine's shelling will have 'irreversible consequences', warns Russia

Russia's foreign ministry says the Ukrainian army is responsible for the shelling that killed a man inside Russian territory, warning that the incident could have "irreversible consequences".

Russian investigators say that a man was killed and a woman injured when a shell fired from Ukrainian territory landed in the courtyard of a private house in the village of Donetsk, in Russia's Rostov region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poroshenko WANTS a reaction from Russia, to allow the US to directly militarily intervene in Ukraine. That is why Poroshenko has been carrying out deliberate provocations such as driving an APC into Russian territory and abandoning it there, overflights, and the shelling of border crossings. Poroshenko will go on provoking Russia until Russia responds. Then the western media will declare Russia as the aggressor and try to make everyone forget Ukraine struck first, just as they are even now trying to obscure the fact that Israel started the current conflict in Gaza and claim HAMAS is the aggressor.

And let us not forget that the crisis in Ukraine actually started back in January when Ukraine's elected government was forced from power by a foreign-backed coup for rejecting an "offer" to merge with the European Union.

List of the 176 Palestinians, Including Whole Families, Killed Since Tuesday

The following is a list of the 176 Palestinians killed by Israeli air bombardment since Tuesday, July 8th. This list is being updated regularly. Approximately 1120 have been injured, dozens in very serious conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons. Those who refuse to go along with this farce are denounced as "Anti-Semites" and "Jew Haters"

Ignoring international appeals for a cease-fire, Israel widened its range of Gaza bombing targets to civilian institutions with suspected Hamas ties and deployed ground troops inside Gaza for the first time early Sunday to raid a rocket launching site in the Palestinian territory.

'Npower took £25,000 from our account'

For almost seven years, Mike and Suzanne Walker dutifully paid their energy bills and provided regular meter readings.

The couple, both 65 and semi-retired, had in 2007 asked npower to supply gas and electricity to Langfield Manor, the guesthouse they run in Bude, Cornwall. They were perfect customers. Yet despite paying by direct debit and keeping close tabs on their meters, the couple received a letter from npower last October saying that there was a discrepancy in their bills. Weeks later, the energy giant removed £25,300 from the couple’s business account without warning.

It transpired that npower had, for the seven years, ignored the six-digit electricity reading sent by the Walkers, using only the first five digits to calculate bills.

Margaret Thatcher 'personally covered up' child abuse allegations against senior ministers

Margaret Thatcher personally covered up child abuse ­allegations made against one of her senior ministers, according to explosive new claims.

The Sunday People reports Tory Prime Minister is said to have held a high-powered meeting with the rising star, who was being tipped for promotion, and told him: “You have to clean up your sexual act.”

It followed an allegation that the minister had sexually abused young boys at the home of one of his political allies in 1982.

However the minister apparently ignored the warnings.

It is claimed that four years later he was spotted by police seeking young boys for sex at Victoria railway station in London.

The Future Of Americas Shopping Malls In Pictures

And they made a wasteland of America!

(Rocket 24) Hundreds of shopping malls across the U.S. have been forced to shut down following years of debilitating declines in consumer traffic.

In many cases, the shuttered malls are left to decay for years before developers or local governments raise the funds to bulldoze or renovate the space.

Pseudonymous photographer Seph Lawless traveled the country for years to find these forgotten malls and document their decay from the inside.

The photos he captured are haunting and apocalyptic, featuring dead trees and abandoned shopping carts against landscapes of broken glass and crumbling walls.

He compiled the photographs in a new book, “Black Friday: The Collapse of the American Shopping Mall,” and shared some of them with Business Insider.

Ukraine launches air offensive, kills 1,000 rebels, Kiev says

Ukrainian war planes bombarded separatists along a broad front on Saturday, inflicting huge losses, Kiev said, after President Petro Poroshenko said “scores and hundreds” would be made to pay for a deadly missile attack on Ukrainian forces.

In exchanges marking a sharp escalation in the three-month conflict, jets struck at the “epicentre” of the battle against rebels near the border with Russia, a military spokesman said.

The increasing violence will bring a new sense of urgency to diplomatic attempts to end the worst crisis between Russia and the West since the Cold War.

After a pro-Western revolt in Kiev ousted a Moscow-backed president in February, Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula and pro-Russian separatists seized strategic buildings in towns in the Russian-speaking east, setting up “people’s republics” and declaring they wanted to join Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, those who wrote this are dealing with SMD (selective memory disorder) when they are accusing Russia of "annexing" Crimea, which absoflippinglutely did not happen.

After the Western putsch (orchestrated by the UCB, the US, and the EU), and the duly elected President was thrown under the bus by the western-centric plotters, Crimea held a free and fair referendum to rejoin the Russian Federation.

The article also fails to point out that historically, Crimea had always been a part of Russia, until the mid-fifties, when Khrushchev, himself a Ukrainian national, annexed it to Ukraine, so that relationship was, historically, rather new for the Crimean people.

And I have to wonder; how many of these alleged "rebels" were simply civilians, desperately trying to get out of the way of the bombings? It is apparent that Poroschenko is completely comfortable with committing war crimes to get whatever objectives he desires; and these actions provide a very interesting window on his soul.

Did you know that there is a place called ?#?Gaza? strip and now it is under Israeli attack?!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Facebook page of photographs from Gaza.

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers. The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons. Those who refuse to go along with this farce are denounced as "Anti-Semites" and "Jew Haters" (and yes the megaphonies are following me around the net doing exactly that.)

Meanwhile, there have been large public protests outside several BBC facilities and more are planned in coming days.

Webmaster's Commentary:

‘Diplomatic earthquake’ as Germany halts spy cooperation with US

The German government has instructed its intelligence agencies to limit their cooperation with their American counterparts “to the bare essentials” until further notice, according to media reports. The move follows news that Berlin requested on Thursday the immediate removal from Germany of the United States Central Intelligence Agency chief of station —essentially the top American official in the country. The request came after two German citizens, one working for the BND, Germany’s main external intelligence organization, and one working for the country’s Federal Ministry of Defense, were allegedly found to have been secretly spying for the US. German media reported on Thursday that the temporary halt in Berlin’s intelligence collaboration with Washington applies across the spectrum, with the exception of areas directly affecting tactical security concerns for Germany, such as the protection of its troops in Afghanistan, or defending against immediate terrorist threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Obama Administration: diplomatic stupidity...should be painful, and this administration has no other people upon which they can lay the blame for this.

Israel airstrike bombs major water line, sewage station and water wells in Gaza

Gaza, Occupied Palestine – Israeli airstrikes bombed a major water line and sewage plant west of Gaza City, last Wednesday afternoon, which provides water to tens of thousands of citizens and is regarded as the main water line for al-Shati refugee camp west of the city.

The director of the Water Department in the Municipality of Gaza, Saad Eddin Al-Atbash stated, “Israeli aircraft targeted a sewage plant west of the city, which serves the areas of al-Shati Camp, Tel al-Hawa neighborhood, Sheikh Ajlin, and the western areas of Gaza City, which pumps 25,000 cubic meters of waste water daily to the public treatment plant.” He continued, “While the city is working on improving the water supply systems for the citizens in Gaza, Israeli forces are working on the destruction of water wells in order to increase the suffering of the citizens during the summer.”

This waterline provides water to more than 70,000 people, and it takes several days to repair.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IT is obvious that the IDF has been ordered to do a complete "scorched earth" military drive against Gaza, and unfortunately the destruction of water and sewage lines are just the beginning here.

78 Year Old Man Beaten and Pepper sprayed by Cop on Ride Home From Church

A 78 year old man was recently pulled over by police on his way home from church. The officer apparently pulled the old man over because he was driving on the wrong side of the road.

According to 78 year old Charles Griffith and his wife Joy, the situation was hostile from the minute he was pulled over.

When Charles was pulled over he wasn't exactly sure what to do because he had never been in trouble before, so he got out of the car to wait for the officer. The officer then approached the car aggressively ordering him to get back into the car.

"He come up there and said, 'get back in the car,' and I did. He wanted to see my driver's license and he just started saying he was going to take me to jail and this kind of stuff. I hadn't did anything wrong... I had never been in trouble or nothing" Griffith told reporters after the incident.

Border Patrol Union: TSA Lying, Changed Policy After Breitbart Report

Ukraine urges Russia not to accept orphans fleeing war zones

The children’s rights ombudsman of Ukraine demanded Russia send back Ukrainian orphans who cross the border after evacuation from battle zones in the country’s east. The ombudsman accuses Russia of “kidnapping” and violation of children’s rights.

Ukraine is not in a position to demand anything, as it is the reason the children were orphaned in the first place. These children are not the property of the Ukrainian state, and this Valeria Lutkovskaya is in no position to demand anything of Russia.

It is pretty obvious the children deliberately headed for a place where they knew they would be safe. They will undoubtedly have a better life in Russia than they would have in that basket-case of a failed state that calls itself Ukraine.

Top Tory's devastating attack on our loss of privacy: This data law has nothing to do with catching terrorists - and everything to do with a lust for power

The last time the main parties got together in a closed room, did a deal and told the country there was a need to act urgently, we were on the edge of abandoning 300 years of press freedom.

This time our privacy is under threat. In the name of security, the Government is fast-tracking legislation through Parliament that will allow it to collect huge quantities of our personal data.

We would do well to remember the advice of Ben Franklin: ‘Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.’

The Government has engineered a ‘theatrical emergency’ – in this case terrorism and hidden paedophile rings – to ram the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill through Parliament without proper debate.

It is an insult to the supremacy of Parliament, to democracy and to the trust of the public.

1 killed, 2 injured: Russia vows response to Ukraine shelling Russian city

An artillery shell from Ukraine has hit a private house in the Rostov region of Russia, killing a citizen and leaving two more injured. The Russian Foreign Ministry promises heavy consequences.

Reportedly up to six mortar shells exploded on Sunday in the small Russian town of Donetsk, which has the same name as the Ukrainian city and is situated right on the Ukrainian border.

Ukraine’s charge d'affaires in Russia has been summoned to the Foreign Ministry where he was handed a note of protest in the strongest terms.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has called the shelling “an obviously aggressive act” on Ukraine’s part and warned it could have “irreversible consequences” with Kiev holding full responsibility for the provocation.

The Senate is giving more power to the NSA, in secret. Everyone should fight it

One of the most underrated benefits of Edward Snowden's leaks was how they forced the US Congress to shelve the dangerous, privacy-destroying legislation– then known as Cispa – that so many politicians had been so eager to pass under the guise of "cybersecurity". Now a version of the bill is back, and apparently its authors want to keep you in the dark about it for as long as possible.

Now it's called the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (Cisa), and it is a nightmare for civil liberties. Indeed, it's unclear how this kind of law would even improve cybersecurity. The bill was marked up and modified by the Senate intelligence committee in complete secrecy this week, and only afterward was the public allowed to see many of the provisions passed under its name.

McDaniel challenges Harrison County, others that won't disclose poll books

Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel is forging ahead with plans to examine every poll book in Mississippi for evidence that would overturn his loss to Sen. Thad Cochran.

Several counties, including Harrison, have refused to hand over poll books because they contain voters' personal information. McDaniel's camp is legally challenging them to have circuit clerks comply with the law.

Harrison County attorney Tim Holleman said the law is contradictory, with different statutes requiring both full disclosure of poll books and protection of personal data.

At a hearing Friday morning, Harrison County Judge Roger R. Clark ruled Harrison County Circuit Clerk Gayle Parker must hand over the books and McDaniel must pay for the personal information to be redacted.

Israel deploys ground troops in Gaza "briefly"

JERUSALEM - Israel briefly deployed ground troops inside the Gaza Strip for the first time early Sunday as its military warned northern Gaza residents to evacuate their homes, part of a widening offensive that's killed more than 160 Palestinians.

Neither Israel nor Palestinian militants show signs of agreeing to a cease-fire, despite calls by the United Nations Security Council and others to end the increasingly bloody six-day offensive. With Israel massing tanks and soldiers at Gaza's borders, some fear that could signal a wider ground offensive that would cause heavy casualties.

"We don't know when the operation will end," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netayahu told a Cabinet meeting Sunday. "It might take a long time."

Early Sunday, Israeli troops launched a brief raid into northern Gaza to destroy what it described as a rocket-launching site, an operation the military said left four soldiers slightly wounded.

Emails shed new light on UK link to CIA 'torture flights' Police given crucial logs about Diego Garcia's role in rendition programme when it was allegedly used as a secret prison

Crucial logs revealing flights to a British overseas territory when it was allegedly used as a secret US prison are in the possession of the police, the Observer has learned.

The revelation has raised concerns about why, despite repeated demands, details of the flights have not been shared with lawyers and MPs, who for years have been investigating the role played by Diego Garcia, an atoll in the Indian ocean, in the CIA's extraordinary rendition programme.

A Whitehall official was photographed last week carrying documents marked "sensitive" confirming that the logs recording details of planes landing and taking off at the atoll have been handed to detectives. The documents, a series of printed emails and handwritten notes made by the official, reveal internal Foreign Office discussions about the line to take in response to questions about the British territory raised by lawyers and MPs.

A few days ago, word got out that 6 vials of variola, the virus that causes smallpox, were found in a cold storage room that is owned by the Food and Drug Administration on the NIH’s Bethesda campus.

Now two other lab breaches have been revealed.

From the AP:

Citing an anthrax scare and other safety problems, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday said it shut down two research labs and stopped shipping highly dangerous germs to other labs.

An incident at one of the closed Atlanta labs could have accidentally exposed workers in three labs to anthrax last month. A second, previously undisclosed problem earlier this year involved deadly bird flu.

Gilad Atzmon: It is important to note that Israel hasn’t won a single military battle since 1973. True, it has killed many Arabs, but it hasn’t managed to achieve any of its military objectives.

Israel’s military domination has been sustained by the power of deterrence. The strategy was to force Arabs to avoid conflict by threatening that they could lose everything. This week has shown that this trick won’t work anymore.

Palestinian resistance has sprung back to life. Israel can not solve its problems by military means. The situation is desperate for the Israelis. They have started to realize that they are stuck within a political, ideological and cultural stalemate. Israel is unable to conjure an image of a resolution. There is no prospect of future for the Jewish State.

Mayor de Blasio : Ballot Initiative (for NYC to investigate cause of WTC 7 collapse) “insensitive and inappropriate”

Bill de Blasio, another NYC Mayor who has an allergy to reality, decency, and an interest in actually investigating the crimes of 9/11/01 on Thursday said,

“From what I’ve heard it’s absolutely ridiculous,”… “And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”

That “insensitive and inappropriate action” is the ballot initiative spearheaded by the High Rise Safety Initiative, a group of grassroots activists and 9/11 family members like Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, have gathered 67, 192 signatures so far from verifiable New York legal residents, that if passed November 4th, it would require the City’s Department of Buildings to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 and any future high-rise collapses.

Given US/UK/Israel wars and lust for more, what do two ‘supreme Law’ treaties say about lawful and unlawful war?

The short answer is war is lawful only in self-defense from armed attack by another nation’s government, and lawful response is to arrest US/UK/Israel leaderships for unlawful Wars of Aggression.

Background history: It’s easy to document the US as a neocolonial empire; offspring of Europe’s lust for material wealth that spawned two world wars in the century within which all current adults were born.

All of our families sacrificed through those wars. Please take a moment to feel what they went through.

Child abusers in the Home Office: Amid the growing furore over a cover-up of a paedophile ring at the heart of Westminster, an expose of the true extent of the scandal

Perhaps the most chilling contribution to this appalling literary enterprise could, however, be found in its final pages.

There sat a biographical essay by Steven Adrian Smith, a man who had achieved notoriety as the chairman of PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) from 1979 onwards.

Over the course of roughly a dozen pages, Smith told an extraordinary tale.

It described how he had managed, for almost four years, to secretly run the child sex organisation from a small room at the London headquarters of the Home Office, where he worked.

‘PIE did actually have an office in Westminster,’ he gloated, ‘and it was only a smirk away from the desk of the Home Secretary.’

Astonishingly, Smith revealed that, from 1979, he was able not just to gain employment at the Home Office, but also spend most of his (publicly-funded) working day discreetly running PIE affairs from his desk there.

Her appointment has already come under fire as she is the brother-in-law of Sir Michael Havers, a former Attorney General in the 1980s – when the abuse is alleged to have taken place.

Her comments were reportedly made in 2011 during a meeting at the House of Lords with Phil Johnson, who suffered assaults by a number of clergymen when he was a choirboy in the Church of England Diocese of Chichester.

As Detroit, Michigan grapples with bankruptcy, requiring at least $1 billion in aid, it is probably not alone. “More U.S. cities could be heading towards bankruptcy”, said Richard Ravitch, a former Lieutenant-Governor of New York, who was instrumental in helping New York City navigate through its financial woes in the 1970s.

Unstoppable Barrage: Gaza bombing intensifies, death toll over 100

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1m25s “Not all of the strikes are on militants and buildings though. Late Thursday night a peculiar strike took place at Gaza’s marina. A boat owned by the Freedom Flotilla Coalition was the sole target.”

Not a military target at all.

Israel’s message to the Palestinians: Submit, leave or die

Israel’s message is clear is that the military operations had a purpose of their own, that they would have been launched regardless, that they were merely waiting on a pretext. They had to come because the vacuum left by Kerry had to be filled. “Closure” was necessary – and it was clear that the Palestinian Authority, which had several months to take an initiative that would have bolstered the Palestinians’ position, would not do so, even though Martin Indyk, the American’s chief negotiator and former AIPAC leader, placed the blame squarely on Israel for talks’ failure.

NEW YORKERS MARCH FOR PEACE IN GAZA ~~ PHOTO ESSAY

There were over a thousand participants in the march. The general mood was one of anger and pain but not discouragement. Determination might best describe the mood. There were a few speeches, lots of loud chanting, and then a march from the Israeli Consul on 42nd & 2nd Ave. along 42nd St. (very crowded area, marchers were seen by many) and then turned north on 6th Ave. to FOX News on 48th St.

IN ISRAEL ~~ PANIC YOU SAY?

An Israeli military spokesman has admitted that Israel is killing Palestinian children knowingly, saying the goal of the killing is to make Hamas supporters suffer. Israel routinely carries out war crimes and crimes against humanity against Palestinians and other peoples of the Middle East, paying little or no attention to the rule of international law or international humanitarian law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now remember, HAMAS is the democratically elected government of Gaza, so what Israel is doing is like bombing the homes of GOP supporters here in the US.

Coldest Antarctic June Ever Recorded

Antarctica continues to defy the global warming script, with a report from Meteo France, that June this year was the coldest Antarctic June ever recorded, at the French Antarctic Dumont d’Urville Station.

According to the press release, during June this year, the average temperature was -22.4c (-8.3F), 6.6c (11.9F) lower than normal. This is the coldest June ever recorded at the station, and almost the coldest monthly average ever – only September 1953 was colder, with a recorded average temperature of -23.5c (-10.3F).

June this year also broke the June daily minimum temperature record, with a new record low of -34.9c (-30.8F).

EXCLUSIVE: HHS Bankrolled Catholic and Baptist Church from 2010 to 2013 to Prepare for Obama’s 2014 Invasion!

A month or two ago news broke that Obama’s HHS was calling for private contractors to help transport illegal aliens throughout the interior United States. What made this already big news even bigger is the fact that the original call for proposals came out in January, long before the bulk of the illegal alien surge began.

The breaking news you’re about to read is ten times bigger, because the following proves the Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches back in 2010. And the tens of millions were flowing in to prepare for the invasion currently underway.

The following is a small taste of what’s out there in grant records. This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks.

Between Dec 2010 and Nov 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

Zionist lying unchecked

Police faked 9-1-1 phone calls to warrantlessly search homes

Officers entered properties by claiming emergency calls were made, except they weren't. A dubious police tactic has come to light, in which officers used falsified information in order to gain ‘consent’ to search private properties without a warrant.

Officers in Durham have apparently discovered that they can create the legal pretext for a search by lying about calls to 9-1-1 emergency services that never actually took place. The tactic is apparently legal — and commonplace — according to an officer’s sworn statements.

The "Six Million Jews" Theme From Before World War Two

So here is the story.

I chanced across an article documenting how the Zionists had been using the theme of "Six Million Jews" long before World War 2. This article was hosted on scribd and no sooner did I link to that article from whatreallyhappened.com than it was pulled from the scribd server.

The reason for the panic reaction is obvious. As doubts continue to surface regarding the claim of Six Million Jews intentionally exterminated by Germany in the 1940s, evidence that the Six Million "brand" has been used prior to that time undermines its credibility even further.

So where did the Six Million come from, if not in actual fact from the crimes of the Nazis? It actually originates in a prophecy from the Talmud, which states that after Six Million Jews are sacrificed, Israel will be restored to the survivors.

30 civilians killed, orphanage destroyed as Kiev forces hit town near Donetsk – local militia

30 civilians have been killed in overnight shelling on Maryinka, a town near Donetsk, in southeastern Ukraine, by pro-Kiev military forces, according to estimates by self-defense forces.

“30 civilians died as a result of the Ukrainian army’s shelling of Maryinka. Rubble cleanup is under way,” says the Twitter of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.

Self-defense commander, Igor Strelkov, confirmed 30 casualties among the civilian population.

“None of the buildings used by self-defense has been damaged. None of us have been killed or injured. The civilians bore the brunt of the attacks,” he told journalists.

Missiles have hit apartment blocks. This footage by RT's Ruptly video agency shows damage done to one of the neighborhoods in Maryinka. It features a completely demolished section of the fifth floor of one of the houses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were these civilians unarmed??

If not, the Ukrainian forces have committed genocide here.

And massively bombing apartment buildings?!? What kind of "military targets" are they?!?

Moscow protests shooting at Russian border guards from Ukrainian side

Moscow strongly condemns Kiev forces shooting at Russian border guards and demands that such actions cease. Otherwise, Russia reserves the right to protect its territory and citizens, the Foreign Ministry has said.

At around 3 am on Saturday, a vehicle with a squad of Russian border guards, on duty at the frontier between Russia and Ukraine, came under fire from the Ukrainian side, the Russian Ministry said in a statement.

As a result of the incident in the Kuibyshev district of the Rostov region, the vehicle sustained damage: eight bullet holes were found in the vehicle’s chassis.

“Only by good fortune were none of the Russian border-guards injured,” the Foreign Ministry statement reads.

Moscow says it has evidence that the shooting came from Ukrainian territory and a position on Russian soil, which was prepared in advance after attackers from Ukraine penetrated the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kiev's Poroschenko is going to continue to taunt Putin until Putin's only response left may ultimately be a military response.

At that point, we will have Russia (and most probably China) at the throats of the US/Ukraine/NATO/ and the EU.

I would like to politely remind those precious few adults in the bowels of power in DC that the US, and its related allies, in such a fight, do not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia; and that is what makes a potential military confrontation so scarily dangerous.

Israel Is Bombing Gaza Back to the Stone Age to Get Hamas ... But ISIS – NOT HAMAS – Claims Credit for Attacks Against Israel

Israel is currently bombing Gaza back to the stone age (MSM spin notwithstanding).

While Israel claims that Hamas was behind the murder of 3 Israeli boys which started this round of violence (and subsequent rocket attacks), the Times of Israel reported last week:

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) [or "ISIS"] has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Hamas has denied responsibility for the attacks.

Gaza-Israel conflict: The terrible price Palestinian children are paying for Israel’s war with Hamas

He and his wife, Hanan, had craved a baby and Mariam came after years of IVF treatment. An only child, she was the apple of her grandparents’ eyes and they had been constantly cautioning her that she should not stray far from home in these dangerous times.

“Our little girl was playing in our garden when it happened. The Israelis bombed a house across the street: the blast came straight through our house – then I saw my daughter lying in blood,” said Mr Masri. “She was injured badly in the head, so we fear very much.”

Mariam is one among the extraordinarily large number of children who have been victims since Benjamin Netanyahu’s government launched Operation Protective Edge: 22 are among the 103 dead, and no less than 70 per cent of the 700 injured comprise boys and girls, or women, according to Palestinian medical authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF is blowing up residential structures, under the claim that they harbor "Hamas terrorists"; however, I would suggest that they are bombing residential structures to kill as many women and children as possible.

When you execute kids, you take the future away from a society; Hitler certainly understood that.

Executing women... is forced population control.
