5-minute video: geo-political Syria facts, analysis. 99.99%: demand US/UK .01% arrests or gamble on WW3

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Storm Clouds Gathering’s outstanding documentation and 5-minute video demonstrates Earth’s imminent threat of World War 3 with nuclear weapons that destroy nearly all life on Earth.

Better read the preceding sentence twice to let it penetrate. I also recommend Luke Rudkowski’s videos for briefings.

But hey, there is another option than this nuclear high-stakes game: US military leadership enact their oaths to arrest .01% obvious War Criminals issuing unlawful orders for unlawful wars.

These facts are certain and actionable to demand arrests of US .01% “leaders” now in order to avoid risk of WW3:
Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution.
“Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.

Russian operation in Syria revealed the real sponsors of terrorism to the world

"I'll give you one example. More than 50 aircraft were transported to Syria. More than 2 thousand people transported via transport aircraft. And not one of the vaunted NATO radars in Turkey, Bulgaria and other countries could record it. Today, the Americans don't see our guys working. We have developed such a system of technical cover that the Pentagon is just going crazy – we can see them, but they can not see us. It is clear that all their plans had failed," - explains the expert.

4 Reasons ‘Universal Background Checks’ for Gun Buyers Are a Bad Idea

Senate Democrats plan to ingratiate themselves with voters by introducing a new package of gun controls. In a letter to fellow Democrats, Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) said they hope gun control advocacy “will be a rallying point for a public that is eager for congressional action and will be the basis for future legislation that we will demand,” although there is zero chance that such legislation will actually pass

The NATO-Russia Face Off in Syria

by Pepe Escobar
As for those Syrian “moderate rebels” – and most of them are not even Syrian, they’re mercenaries – every pebble in the ravaged Sykes-Picot desert sands knows they were trained by the CIA in Jordan. The desert pebbles are also aware that ISIS/ISIL/Daesh goons have been infiltrated into Syria from Turkey – once again, across Hatay province; and vast swathes of ‘the Sultan’s’ Army and police were into the game.

John Lennon, born 75 years ago on October 9, 1940, was a musical genius and pop cultural icon. He was also a vocal peace protester and anti-war activist and a high-profile example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority. Long before Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden were being castigated for blowing the whistle on the government’s war crimes and the National Security Agency’s abuse of its surveillance powers, it was Lennon who was being singled out for daring to speak truth to power about the government’s warmongering, his phone calls monitored and data files collected on his activities and associations.

IDF accused of inciting, mistreating Palestinian protesters as West Bank violence rages on

Palestinian media was outraged by footage shot by several cameras, including those belonging to RT, which showed Israeli soldiers continuing to beat and kick several protesters long after they had been restrained.

IDF has said it would investigate the footage.

In another episode, several apparent plainclothes Israeli agents stood alongside Palestinians as they launched slingshots, only to suddenly unsheathe their firearms, and begin arresting those in the crowd around them.

How Putin will Win in Syria

By most accounts, the conflict had deteriorated into a stalemate. Now, with Russia in the picture, that’s changed. Now the table is clearly tilted in Syria’s favor.…

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

Putin is not going to stop for anything or anyone. He’s going to nail these guys while he has them in his gun-sights, then he’s going to wrap it up and go home.

Matt Drudge Challenges Obama: Give Up Your Guns

As the White House prepares more executive orders on gun control, Matt Drudge has sensationally challenged President Obama to give up his armed Secret Service protection.

During an impromptu appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge also called on Hillary Clinton to relinquish her armed bodyguards.

“They’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about [danger.] I challenge Hillary, take away your Secret Service. Take it away now. Take away your Secret Service; dismiss them. Have no security around you; have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you. I dare you,” said Drudge.

America to Collapse As Dollar Dies: “You Cannot Stop What Is Coming… 25 to 50 Million Dead in 90 Days”

A collapse is coming… but not as quickly as many are expecting.

“V” explains, “We are entering a time which I call the collapse point. At the collapse point, there is going to be massive systemic shock. Why? Because you have one paradigm and one system being done away with, which is the dollar. It is going to be replaced by a new system. During that transition period, you cannot expect to trade anything because what do you trade it in? That’s why the Chinese are gearing up their own gold price fix. Once that collapse point happens and the world reels from the systemic shock, the Chinese gold price fix and the BRICS system will be there to fill in that vacuum. That is what’s being set up right now.”

This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

So the Russian people are proud of the way Putin is fighting the war on terror. Is there something wrong with that? Many Americans are old enough to remember a time when they were proud of their own country too, when it actually stood up for the principles it espouses in its founding documents. That was quite a while ago though, sometime back in the “pre-Gitmo” era”.

For years, the singer-songwriter has supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, supporting Palestine and urging his rock-star peers not to perform in Israel. "What is with Roger Waters and the Jews?" Stern said in a seven-minute rant on his show, via The Washington Free Beacon. "Why does Roger Waters live in America, a country that was founded on white people coming in and obliterating the native population? How does he stand it? Why don't we just all leave?"

8-minute video: Geo-political Syria chess: demanding arrests of US .01% War Criminals finally, or you prefer gambling toward WW3?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tip: zengardner

Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange in an excellent 8-minute summary of events as of the start of October:

Sure, it’s possible that Russia is leading military action to end US/UK and Israel unlawful and lie-began Wars of Aggression in the Middle East.

That said, within ongoing corporate media and US “leadership” propaganda, we can be certain that outside many broad strokes of Luke Rudkowski’s summary, we can be certain our understanding is far from a comprehensive factual understanding.

This is why in the ongoing geo-political chess game, I assert these facts are certain and actionable to demand arrests of US .01% “leaders” now in order to avoid risk of WW3:

Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.

Israel is not a normal country. It is not a western country. It is not a democratic country. It is a country seeped in blood. A country where the hounds bay for fresh blood.

A couple driving their car through the West Bank were shot to death and two rabbis associated with ethnic cleansing group, Ateret Cohanim, were stabbed to death there. Today, it is the blood of a Palestinian teenager, Fadi Alloun, hunted like a dog by an Israeli mob who suspected him of stabbing a Jewish settler teen

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.

Role Reversal in the New Cold War

This past weekend marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the reunification of Germany, an event that formalized the end of the cold war. The so-called “German Democratic Republic,” one of the most repressive of the Soviet-imposed regimes established in the wake of World War II, was no more. It imploded without a shot being fired.

The largely bloodless revolution that swept across Eastern Europe, toppling Communist dictatorships from Berlin to Budapest, soon penetrated the epicenter of the “evil empire” itself – and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics evaporated like mist on a sunlit morning. It was the end of the cold war, and peoples all over the world breathed a joyful sigh of relief – and yet that joy was not shared by all.

Government Chart of Gun Murders - A Complete Lie! Real Statistics from FBI. Real Truth through real charts on gun violence/murders.

I am seeing this chart about how guns have been used in murders of more people than anything else in the world in the U.S., including Terrorism.

There were NOT 33636 gun deaths in the U.S. in 2013.

The FBI has the statistics on their site for 2013.

There were an estimated 14,196 murders 2013.

That is TOTAL murders for 2013! That includes ALL forms of murder, stabbings, blunt objects, strangulation besides guns.

Guns are not the big problem that they are made out to be. The mainstream media and the government are lying about the statistics and those are OUTRIGHT Lies! If people did not just believe everything they are told and researched the information themselves then they would wake up to how they are being controlled with lies.

Now, I grant that no amount of body armor adequate to protect the uniquely vulnerable egos of police officers who are targeted for abuse and ridicule. This is why we are told that growing – and still woefully inadequate – public criticism of law enforcement is nothing less than a “war on police,” and that high-profile criticism of cops is akin to ISIS-caliber terrorism.

How The US Helped To Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

by Garikai Chengu

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980?s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

Estimates are that 20 percent of all men serving in US prisons have been raped. This film looks at the social system within prisons that allows this violent sexual behavior to occur.

It might seem unlikely to some, but a real political revolution is underway in the US right under our noses. The deeply underwhelming start to the American presidential campaign has unexpectedly evolved into a significant social phenomenon that could well have far-reaching consequences.

John Hancock - Smuggling Powerhouse

My kind of American!

John Hancock did not directly participate in the Boston tea party. But he stood to lose the most from the East India Company imports of English tea to Boston. On the other hand Samuel Adams who led the Mohawks aboard the British ships was so close to John Hancock that Bostonians even joked that "Sam Adams writes the letters [to newspapers] and John Hancock pays the postage". You do the math.

After he inherited a fortune in his mid-20s, this elegant dandy nearly single-handedly bankrolled the early protests in Boston.

On CNN; "Problem with Russia in Syria. An Accidental Skirmish With The US LED ISIS Coalition"

All the media has already been mentioning how Russia is bombing their CIA "moderate" rebels of Al Qaeda. Of course they use the word 'rebel' instead of 'terrorist'. Which is really funny. Because wasn't it Al Qaeda who used to be called terrorist here? Weren't they the reason we went to Iraq and Afghanistan? Really weird.... I wonder if people are noticing that the U.S. now fully embraces and admits arming and supporting Al Qaeda, who were suppose to be our mortal enemies who did 9/11. Now it seems there is a slip and the U.S. is behind ISIS too.

Vladimir Putin’s Address to the United Nations Security Council. Video and Transcript

The UN General Assembly is the United Nations Organisation’s main consultative body and examines the principles for cooperation in ensuring international peace and security.

?The 70th anniversary of the United Nations is a good occasion to both take stock of history and talk about our common future.

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.

Roseberg Oregon Residents Say School Shooting Shows Why Citizens Must Be Armed

Once again the Gungrabbers misread the psychology of the Americans.

Residents in Roseberg, Oregon, are rallying around the Second Amendment in the wake of the heinous attack on Umpqua Community College (UCC), suggesting the attack itself is proof of why citizens need to be armed for self-defense.

According to the Associated Press, Roseberg is a mill town surrounded by hunting and fishing opportunities, and one where many residents say they do not leave home without a handgun for self-defense. They do not carry because crime is high, but because crime is low and they want to keep it that way.

Consequently, residents like J.C. Smith believe the attack at UCC was made possible by the fact that the school denied the exercise of Second Amendment rights to its students. Smith suggests that “barring people from carrying guns on campus made it particularly vulnerable to a ‘lone wolf’ attack” like the one witnessed Thursday.

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe.

This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.

Refugee in Finland complains that the food is not good and is only suitable for dogs or women

About 70 asylum seekers marched yesterday afternoon seven kilometres from the Hiukkavaara refugee centre to the Oulu police station, escorted by police.

One Iraqi asylum seeker had carried with him a plate of white rice, declaring that it was fit for dogs to eat, and women, but not men like him.

The plate that the asylum seeker was so flamboyantly presenting to the media as dog food, was, indeed, rice, but without the beef and vegetable sauce, and the salad that goes with the dish.

Putin's key talking points could not but be easily accessible to the Global South — his prime audience, much more than the industrialized West.

1) The export of color — or monochromatic — revolutions is doomed.

2) The alternative to the primacy of statehood is chaos. This implies that the Assad system in Syria may be immensely problematic, but it's the only game in town. The alternative is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh barbarism. There's no credible "moderate opposition" — as there was not in NATO-"liberated" Libya.

3) Only the UN — as flawed as it may be — is a guarantor of peace and security in our imperfect, realpolitik geopolitical environment.

Damascus accuses US-led coalition of breaking int'l law, state sovereignty

British and French airstrikes on Syrian territory violate internationally recognized legal norms, the Syrian Foreign Minister complained on Thursday.

“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.

"Today I said to John Kerry that, unlike in the case with Iraq, which invited the coalition to move in, there has been no such invitation from Syria, nor has the coalition asked for any such permission from the UN Security Council…

Ten Reasons to Oppose the Saudi Monarchy

During the discussion on the Iran nuclear deal, it has been strange to hear US politicians fiercely condemn Iranian human rights abuses while remaining silent about worse abuses by US ally Saudi Arabia. Not only is the Saudi regime repressive at home and abroad, but US weapons and US support for the regime make Americans complicit. So let’s look at the regime the US government counts as its close friend.

The Warmonger Presidential Candidates

...the compromised presidential candidates will never gain the guts to set into motion a true America First foreign policy.

In order to fully understand the primal betrayal of genuine American interests, our society has to face the hard reality that the NeoCons and Zionist Israel-First fifth column that controls the bureaucracy of selective orthodox government is the enemy of our own people.

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.

“On Day One in the Oval Office, I will make two phone calls, the first to my good friend Bibi Netanyahu to reassure him we will stand with the state of Israel.”

Obama’s Syria

Ending Syria’s horrific civil war is possible, but the political will to do so remains elusive.

Over the years the facts on the ground have changed in Syria – with the rise of the Islamic State being the deadliest new reality. But Washington and its regional allies remain focused on an illegal regime change in Damascus. The west is fighting the wrong war and will surely lose the peace.

Regime Change as American as Apple Pie

US President Barack Obama is someone to almost pity. For he has the unenviable task of standing before the nations of the world and smugly spout endless falsehoods — as he did, yet again, during his address to the UN General Assembly.

Clandestine American-led interventions have fuelled the explosion in terror networks across the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Yet amid this American legacy of international violence, Obama was charged with painting a rose-tinted view of the world that was breath-taking in its distortion and absurdity.

New Patch for U.S. Troops Fighting ISIS… Looks Like ISIS Logo

Believe it or not, American soldiers fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq will actually be wearing the emblem of ISIS – the infamous crossed-swords logo. Well, almost.

Controversy has stirred because many think the patch looks too much like our boys are fighting for the enemy… just another sign of confusion about the counterproductive Obama-led war against the notorious and shamefully exploitative jihadist army.

The Military Times noted that:

“A combat patch worn by U.S. soldiers who served in Iraq on the mission against Islamic State is drawing flak from service members and veterans who say the patch — with its palm wreath, stars and crossed scimitars — looks like something the enemy would wear.”

If Putin were truly “anti-Zionist” he would not have any relations with Israel whatsoever and would support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Offering to safeguard Israel’s security with Russian investment in its economy is hardly a gesture of hostility. And signing a 20-year gas deal with Israel evidently signifies that Putin’s Russia believes the Jewish state will continue to exist 20 years in the future.

1-minute video of three former US Treasury Secretaries in grandiose laughter over poverty (using the euphemism “income inequality”):

Urban Institute reports that nearly two of every five American children spend at least one year in poverty before age 18, with a stunning 75% of US Black children in poverty for at least one year.

CBS interviewed the study author, Caroline Ratcliffe:

"It did surprise us. When we look at the annual number of children in poverty, it's at about 20 percent, and we know children cycle into and out of poverty, so we knew it would be higher, but double is startling."

Catalan 'Secessionists' Set To Win Election Amid Record Turnout

In short, elections in Catalonia on Sunday were a proxy for an independence referendum.

The outcome is critical for several reasons, not the least of which are i) Spain’s debt-to-GDP ratio could spike to 125% in an independence scenario, ii) Catalonia would likely be forced out of the euro in the event they secede, iii) the impact on social stability is decisively unclear, iv) Catalonia accounts for nearly a fifth of Spanish GDP.

Here are the results, tallied amid record turnout.

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.

Now We Have the Opportunity to Restore the Constitution

Lyndon LaRouche said yesterday that we must use the United Nations General Assembly to return the US to its Constitution. That is, we must use the kaleidoscopic changes—for the better—in the policies of, and relationships among nations, which were triggered by Vladimir Putin's surprise flanking move into Syria, to shut down Wall Street and throw Barack Obama out of office.

Then, under extreme pressure, Obama was forced today to agree to a Monday meeting with Russia's President Putin,— one which will be very risky for Obama, because Putin sees through him and holds all the cards.

But remember LaRouche's stress on the point that Obama will not just go quietly,— on the contrary, his impulse will be to start a war rather than admit that his time is finally up.

Why Everyone Should Fight Their Traffic Tickets: Every Time

I have beaten over 15 traffic (revenue) tickets in California, including one in CA Superior Court of Appeals (without a lawyer.)
It is very important to remember the presumption of innocence in this country. So many people tend to think, perhhaps subconsciously, that when they "get a ticket" they just "have to pay it". When people ask why I am so adamant about fighting traffic tickets, I recount the incident which occurred in June 2001 that spawned my insistence on "pleading not guilty every time. . I obeyed the cop's orders to proceed to the checkpoint, and when I got there the cop manning the checkpoint sneered with a big grin on his face, "there's someone behind you". It was a motorcycle traffic cop, who proceeded to issue me a ticket for purportedly 'running a red light' (the same light that the first cop had demended we all go through.)

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.

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.

He takes no guff from the loathsome talking heads who have never baited a hook or worried about a mortgage payment or been bankrupted by the confluence of Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. He doesn’t whimper and wriggle and apologize like a puppy who has wet the rug after saying something that upsets the priss spigots. He says, perhaps in different words, what so many want to say. “Stick it where the sun don’t shine.”

Peaceful activists under attack for living off the grid

On most days, downtown San Luis is a quiet place. The town, the oldest in Colorado and seat of Costilla County, is just a short drive from the New Mexico border. Last week though, it was anything but calm. A crowded county commission meeting that drew impassioned speeches spilled out into the street, and two groups formed. One, made up of long-time residents, chanted "we support the police." Members of another, comprised of mostly newer residents that live off the grid, shouted about constitutional rights and filmed the scene as police pushed them down the block.
