British business pressing Cameron to step up preparations for EU referendum — media

British Prime Minister said that referendum on UK’s membership in the European Union will be held until the end of 2017. However, some British media say that voting may be held already in 2016. Cameron supports remaining part of EU. Business is pressing UK Prime Minister David Cameron "to accelerate plans for an EU referendum", The Financial Times reported on Tuesday. "Simon Walker, director-general of the Institute of Directors, called for a plebiscite in 2016 and said there was ‘at least a 50-50 possibility’ that voters would vote to leave the bloc, an assessment shared by some cabinet ministers," FT said. This leaves chances for Great Britain to remain part of the European Union. However, taking into consideration growing eurosceptic sentiment, delay in the referendum may lead to the victory of supporters of UK’s independent course. "The prime minister’s negotiating team are still aiming to secure EU reforms and call an early referendum.

Support growing in Parliament for bombing ISIS in Syria, says UK FM

“We have made a very clear commitment that before we get involved in airstrikes in Syria – other than very targeted cases where we are dealing with direct threats to the UK – yes, we would come back to Parliament and get the authorization,” he told the BBC, after addressing delegates gathered in the main hall.
“And I think there is a sense that there is a beginning of consensus now in Parliament that this has to be dealt with, that we have to take the fight with ISIS to Raqqa in Syria, rather than just attacking them in Iraq.”

Five Leaders Challenging Western Imperialism through Diplomacy, Persuasion,and Public Pressure: Pope Francis, Vladimir Putin, Xi, Jinping, Hassan Rouhani, and Jeremy Corbyn

These five protagonists of a new global agenda differ from past critics from the left both in the style and substance of their politics.

Western imperialism, in all of its manifestation, is being challenged by five political leaders, through diplomacy, moral persuasion and public pressure.

In recent time, Pope Francis, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn have raised fundamental questions concerning (1) war and peace in the Middle East and the Caucuses; (2) climate change and the destruction of the environment; (3) economic sanctions, military threats and confrontation; and (4) growing inequalities of class, gender and race.

Top British official admits human rights no longer priority for Britain

A high-ranking British official said that human rights were no longer a priority for the British government. According to Simon McDonald, Permanent Secretary at the Foreign Office, stated that human rights no longer had the "profile" within his department that they had "in the past," reports with reference to The Independent. McDonald made his remarks when he was questioned about how his department was prioritising resources. Asked whether human rights were now one of its "lower-priority activities", Simon McDonald replied: "Well, answering as Permanent Secretary, I say that although it is one of the things we follow, it is not one of our top priorities." He added: "In a more constrained environment, the need to concentrate on Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia, and the Middle East has supplanted it to an extent."

Obama Accuses Russia of Going After America’s “Good Guy Terrorists”

Moscow is supporting both countries (Syria and Iraq) in their proxy war against the ISIL which is supported by the US and its allies.

Until recently, the ISIS was known as Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). In 2014, it was renamed the Islamic State (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).

Russia is Now Involved in the War on Terrorism

A major turning point in the dynamics of the Syria-Iraq war is unfolding. Russia is now directly involved in the counter-terrorism campaign in coordination with the Syrian and Iraqi governments.

Putin shoots down PM on Syria: You must not arm fanatics who eat organs of their enemies, he warns

Arming Syria's rebels will put guns in the hands of extremists who 'eat the organs' of their enemies, Vladimir Putin warned David Cameron last night.

The Prime Minister hoped to get Mr Putin to soften his stance against Western intervention. But in an extraordinary joint press conference in Downing Street, the Russian president accused the Prime Minister and Barack Obama of trying to arm terrorists.

And in a blood-curdling reference to video footage of a rebel fighter apparently eating the liver of a dead Syrian soldier, he even suggested the Prime Minister was siding with cannibals.

FLASHBACK: British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria

On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying:

“More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,” engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS.

Maybe covert US special forces and CIA elements are involved the same way. During Obama’s war on Libya, Britain deployed hundreds of Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) paratroopers – drawn from SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) personnel.

Around 800 Royal Marines and 4,000 US counterparts were on standby to intervene on short notice if ordered.

Cold War Mentality: NATO Should Prepare for War With Russia – UK Officials

Former UK army officials said that the Russian military is more effective in comparison to NATO’s, calling on the bloc’s leaders to urgently invest more money on improvement of joint force capabilities and to “revisit Cold War scenarios, and this includes conventional, symmetric warfare in Eastern Europe,” The Sunday Express reported.
First, British Army officials appear alarmed by the ability of the Armata battle tank, which is an example of a new generation of Russian power tanks with nothing comparable elsewhere in the world. It can easily withstand any attack by NATO’s anti-tank missiles, both already in existence and those yet-to-be invented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War with Russia?!? Forgive me, but have the people in the British MOD, collectively, gone absolutely out of their minds?!? This is complete, utter desperation on the cusp of madness.

And short memo to the British military; just because you have not kept up with hardware and tank technology is no reason for blaming the Russian military for having better equipment than you do.

Obviously, the Russian military and government were thinking ahead, while the British military and were not. So, work the problem, folks; work the problem!!

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Perhaps it is time to climb down off our ideological high horse and start respecting the vital interests of other sovereign nations, even as we protect and defend our own.

If America’s elites continue to assert their right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations, to make them conform to a U.S. ideal of what is a good society and legitimate government, then we are headed for endless conflict. And, one day, this will inevitably result in war, as more and more nations resist America’s moral imperialism.

Nations have a right to be themselves, Putin is saying.

Revealed: Panorama’s plans to smear survivors of child abuse

BBC1’s Panorama is planning to attack survivors of child sex abuse and others who are uncovering evidence of a ‘Westminster paedophile network’.

Many journalists at the broadcaster fear that the programme will prompt a backlash because two established cases of VIP paedophiles were among the BBC’s biggest stars – Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall.

They point to how the broadcaster badly let down abuse survivors previously, including one who featured in a Panorama on the pulling of an expose of Savile by BBC2’s Newsnight and another at the centre of the latter programme’s implicit and mistaken identification of Lord McAlpine, former Conservative treasurer, as a paedophile.

Panorama plans to smear abuse survivors, criticise Exaro and other media over their reports on VIP paedophiles, and undermine MPs who campaigned on the issue.

On the one hand, just five individual Billionaires in Britain get to control 80% what you read in printed media and on the other hand, just five Internet Service Providers get to control what 87% of people get to see on their devices. Both are heavily influenced by government. It is no wonder what the public think is a misinterpretation of the truth. In fact, so far from the truth, it is more a departure from reality.

“What Britain and France are doing in the Syrian airspace flies in the face of international law and is a flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of the Syrian Republic,” Walid Muallem said.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed as “untrue” a statement earlier made by his US counterpart John Kerry about the US-led coalition’s actions in Syria being fully in line with the UN Charter.

Standing with Israel is a primary reason for the demise of the American Republic.

Illustrating this point, the debate statement from Carly Fiorina, Crackpot Warmonger, exposes the utter absurdity of subordinating our true interests to a rogue regime designed to cause chaos as the meanings to achieve regional dominance.

Patient undergoes breast removal surgery to find out she never had cancer

Stories like these clearly do not paint a good picture of the medical system. They are real situations that have unfolded and ones that can't be ignored. It shows that anyone, regardless of where they live, or their gender, race, age or profession, can become a victim of a disorganized, corrupt system or individual.

At the very least, it's important to be aware of stories like these and to always seek a second opinion. Always ask questions, even if it puts medical professionals on the spot; why not ask them to double-check charts to ensure they do indeed have the correct information and patient name? It may be awkward to question these professionals about something as basic as having the correct patient information, but isn't it worth it if it means potentially avoiding unnecessary surgeries and misdiagnosed sicknesses?

University BANS sombreros after they are branded 'racist' by officials: Free hats given away by restaurant taken off students at freshers' fair in case they cause offence

A Mexican restaurant has been banned from handing out free sombreros to students because the publicity stunt was branded 'racist' by university officials.

Pedro's Tex-Mex Cantina, a Norwich restaurant, gave the hats to University of East Anglia students at a freshers' fair in the city in a bid to drum up business from the student population.

But officials at the students' union, where the fair was held last week, took the sombreros from students and ordered the restaurant to stop giving them out because they thought it was offensive for non-Mexicans to wear them.

These details were revealed in a series of documents published by The Intercept including one on the "flat data store" codenamed BLACK HOLE, and a document calling itself "the one-stop shop for Cyber Defence Operations legal and policy information."

When the slide on BLACK HOLE was composed in March 2009, the flat data store held more than 1.1 trillion things which GCHQ had collected since August 2007.

The store weighed in at 217TB when uncompressed, the largest share of which was HTTP data (41 per cent), which alongside web search (19 per cent) and SMTP data (12 per cent) accounted for almost three quarters of all that it held.

Obama, Putin to meet at a defining moment

The Russian state agency TASS is not given to speculating on the Kremlin leader’s activities. It is a ground rule set by Joseph Stalin when the agency was created in 1925. Therefore, we must accept as ‘breaking news’ the TASS’ Washington dateline report quoting ‘an informed source’ to the effect that a meeting between Russian president Vladimir Putin and US resident Barack Obama will take place next week on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session.

Obama will do well to cut his way through the neocon shibboleth and comprehend that Russia has been largely reactive – be it in Ukraine, Syria or Afghanistan or on missile defence and the global strategic stability – whereas, the US has trampled on Russia’s vital and legitimate interests and core concerns like a rogue elephant. Amends need to be made. For far too long, Obama chose to tread the trodden path set by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in the direction of ‘containment’ of Russia.

Scotland's decision to ban GM crops could create impression country is 'anti-science', experts warn

Scotland’s decision to ban genetically modified crops could damage its ability to attract the best scientists, stunt the growth of businesses and lead to the country being perceived as “anti-science”, according to one of the country’s most respected academic institutions.

In an official advice paper, the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) criticised the Scottish Government’s ban, saying it had used “emotive language likely to fuel negative public perceptions about GM” and had assumed “a degree of public hostility” about the technology which does not exist.

Calling for “rational and respectful debate” on the issue, the RSE said an outright ban on GM crops “does nothing to enhance Scotland’s longstanding reputation for scientific creativity” and may “damage its ability to attract and retain innovative researchers and disadvantage the growth of important Scottish businesses”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how much the GMO corporations paid for this paper.

And let us just look at a "modest proposal", shall we?!? I would like to suggest that every single "scientist" who contributed to this be compelled - along with their families, particularly the babies and toddlers - to eat nothing but GMO foods for the next five years, followed by their medical practitioners, and the reports of those medical findings be made public.

I would almost be willing to bet that these people are in for some unexpected outcomes of their diet.

The Baitul Futuh Mosque in London has caught fire. Half of its ground floor and first floor are in flames. Seventy firefighters and 10 fire engines are reported to be tackling the blaze.

A fire has broken out at the mosque located in London Road in Morden, in the south of the British capital, a London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesman said on Saturday, according to local media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless a thorough investigation reveals otherwise, it looks very much to me like these fires are a result of arson.

However, no amounts of arsons against mosques are going to stop the flow of frantic refugees away from Europe; only sane, sensible US and Western Foreign policies which give people the feeling of safety, and that they have a future in their countries of origin, will do that.

Iran’s ‘take’ on Russian build-up in Syria

Things were going splendidly for Israel until Russia arrived on the scene as the great ‘spoiler’.

The first detailed Iranian commentary on the Russian military build-up in Syria appeared in a Fars news agency piece.

The Iranian interpretation runs counter to the story being spread by Israel and right-wing American propagandists that the Russian forces intend to join the war in Syria.

The Israeli media even claimed that the Russian intervention in Syria is in active collaboration with the so-called Quds Force of the IRGC. The Israeli disinformation aims to put pressure on the Barack Obama administration not to coordinate with Russia over Syria.

Pope Francis Confronts Right Wing Media Vitriol

Who Wants a Third World War?

Chinese President Xi Jinping surfs the USA in his first state visit almost simultaneously as Pope Francis. It will be fascinating to observe how the hyperpower’s decision centers will react to this double exposure to dialectical materialism — with Chinese characteristics — and the in thesis “under reconstruction” Catholic Church.

Now compare the Pentagon pivoting — the China chapter — with what IT America wants; business, a lot of business, which implies, obviously, no sanctions.

And then there’s what the Masters of the Universe really crave; some form of coercion that would lead Beijing to open its coveted financial market to the mega-speculative financial casino of the US Big Bank system. That is not happening — as the White House has absolutely no leverage on the matter.

Mandelson: it’s too early to force Jeremy Corbyn out

Labour critics of Jeremy Corbyn should consider forcing out their leader only when the majority of party members realise the public has formed a negative view of him, according to Peter Mandelson.

The former minister and adviser to Tony Blair offers his view in a private paper that circulated to political associates last week in which he urges them to dig in for the “long haul”.

Jeremy Corbyn isn’t like Caligula’s horse – he’s like Caligula

Jeremy Corbyn has been compared to plenty of people over the past few months — a geography teacher, Michael Foot, Brian from the Monty Python film — but my favourite comparison was to a horse. Steve Fielding, professor of politics at Nottingham, declared Corbyn’s election ‘an act of political stupidity unparalleled since Caligula appointed his horse to the Roman senate’. As someone with a book just published on Rome’s first imperial dynasty, I was doubly thrilled. First, Professor Fielding had confirmed the conviction in which I had written my history of the first Caesars: that two millennia on, the West’s primal examples of political excess continue to instruct and appal. Secondly, though, by repeating the widely believed story that Caligula had made his horse a senator, Professor Fielding was also demonstrating just how important control of the narrative has always been for leaders. In point of historical fact, there was never any equine entrant into the senate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Between Corbyn and Trump, the world is getting a clear demonstration of how the corrupt, Israeli-infiltrated system works to preserve its power and corruption!

America's Latest Foreign Policy Fiascos, Part I

Some 15 months ago I published a piece on American Foreign Policy Fiascos, in which I summarized the significant negative progress that has been achieved through American involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq and Georgia, among others, and then went on to boldly predict that the Ukraine is likewise going to turn out to be another American foreign policy fiasco. Since then it certainly has turned into one.

US meddling in the Ukraine has produced none of the results it was intended to produce:

Last week, journalists Josh Rogin and Eli Lake published a piece at Bloomberg Businessweek explaining how the influential pro-Israel lobby AIPAC came to be defeated in the biggest fight in a generation. The story holds important truths. It’s essentially about the tough spot AIPAC was put in by the Obama administration’s hardball tactics to protect the achievement of the nuclear deal with Iran, hardly a surprise given the stakes at hand.

The revelation emerged in the latest extract from Lord Ashcroft’s unauthorized biography of the Prime Minister, which also alleges Cameron was losing sleep over the Scottish independence referendum.

How police 'ignore cybercrime': Just one in 100 cases is investigated despite the number of online fraud cases rocketing in recent years

Police are only investigating one in 100 cybercrime fraud cases, an investigation has revealed.

The number of online fraud cases has rocketed in recent years - leaving officers reliant on a computer programme to decide if cases 'are worth' following up, it was reported last night.

In the past year there have been 3.2million frauds, but these have resulted in fewer than 9,000 convictions.

Experts have warned the situation has given fraudsters 'virtual impunity', the investigation by the The Times revealed.

Boss of disaster relief charity with Duchess of Cornwall as patron 'conned trustees to channel lucrative contracts to his son'

Thomas Henderson, 63, former head of ShelterBox UK, used his position as CEO to hand supply deals to his son John, 34, making 'significant' gains, it is alleged.

The charity, which was founded in Henderson's garage in Helston, Cornwall, in 2000, grew to be a major international relief agency and counts the Duchess of Cornwall as a patron.

It grew 'exponentially' after its foundation, notably giving aid in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and 2010 Haiti earthquake.

But the Old Bailey heard today that for five years its boss, with the help of employee Darren Gervis, 41, rigged its supply chain for the benefit of his son.

The court was also told that John Henderson 'inflated' invoices so he could buy a house.

UK to ruin relations with US not to miss profit in Russia

After the 1960s, the United Kingdom has been following the United States obediently. For 500 years, the UK leadership was known for its anti-Russian positions. This is a tradition, and the British are a conservative nation. However, the British Labour Party has a new leader now - Jeremy Corbyn, who sympathizes with Vladimir Putin and supports Britain's exit from NATO.
The Labour Party is one of the most influential parties of Great Britain. Labour Party prime ministers have been governing the country for 13 consecutive years, until the Tories, led by David Cameron, ended their reign. Tony Blair was the head of executive authorities from 1997 to 2007, and Gordon Brown - from 2007 to 2010.

Update: A US petition calling for Netanyahu’s arrest

Benjamin Netanyahu is to hold talks in New york this September. Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the U.S for the massacre of over 2000 civilians in 2014.





Why the huge difference between US and the Brits?

Last summer, Israel launched Operation Protective Edge, a bloody war against Gaza that killed about 2,300 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom were civilians, including over 500 children. The attack also devastated Gaza’s infrastructure, and left about 500,000 people displaced or homeless. These war crimes and others, like Israel’s recent attack on the Freedom Flotilla, which sought to bring medical aid and solar panels to the Port of Gaza, have given rise to increased calls for Israel to be tried before the International Criminal Court.

The election of veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn to lead the Labour Party in the UK is a revolution by all means. In a party grassroots election, the 66-year-old outsider defeated a line-up of traditional Labour candidates.

Corbyn’s victory was a rejection of Tony Blair’s wing as much as it was a swing to the left. Blair, who came back from hibernation to campaign against Corbyn, was rebuffed by the rank and file of the Labour Party. Party membership didn’t forgive Blair’s disgraceful servitude role to George Bush and his Israeli fabricated “dossier” to sell the invasion of Iraq.

Iran Key to Unlocking US Hypocrisy on Global Terrorism

Iran’s three decades of battling Western state-sponsored terrorism within its borders...

The Iranian authorities claim to have compiled records of 17,000 victims of terrorism committed by such groups as MEK and Jundallah since the 1979 revolution. Details were presented at a recent international conference held in Tehran.

As well as ordinary citizens, such as Masoumeh’s mother mentioned above, the targets of assassination have included high-profile public figures: Iranian members of parliament, attorneys, government ministers, army generals and newspaper editors. In one of the most audacious attacks, in 1981, Iran’s prime minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar and the country’s president Modhammad Ali Rajai were both killed in a bomb blast carried out on the premier’s residence in the capital, Tehran.
