HSBC cancels account of carpet shop after after it purchases 3 carpets from Iranian businessman

(and it didn't help that the name of the carpet shop was Persian Carpet Studio)

After writing to his MP, Tim Yeo, he received a letter from the Treasury which confirmed the shop was 'perfectly in order to sell Persian carpets'.

He added: 'It said we never ever tried to send any money to Iran. We are not breaking any sanctions. The business was perfectly legitimate.'

He has accused the bank of being frightened of a US treasury department who are handing fines to banks linked to sanction- breaking or money laundering activities.

He went on: 'All our banks are so frightened of what the US Treasury department is doing to them, that they are running around like headless chickens and closing down anything to do with Iranian connections.

'Our Government is not doing anything to protect our banking industry. I think the US Treasury is trying to decimate the UK banking industry for their own gain.'

The Greenhouse propaganda—How Gazan history is being rewritten to dehumanize Palestinians

In mid-December, the greenhouses made their first export of 8 tons of peppers. Speaking to the Associated Press about the success of the project, Jabir said, “It makes us proud. This land was a symbol of occupation and many people were doubting our ability to rehabilitate [it], but now we have proven that we, as Palestinians, are able to manage our lives, to farm our land and to do our own business.”

That hope and pride soon turned to despair. According to Jabir, in order for the project to be successful, it would require moving at least 25 truckloads of produce a day through the Karni crossing. On rare days when the Karni crossing was functioning smoothly he was only able to move 3 truckloads. A crossing that was supposed to be open 24/7, per an international agreement to which Israel was party, was only open sporadically and unpredictably. Israel cited security concerns. The Palestine Economic Development Corporation and its Israeli distribution partner Adafresh were losing hundreds of thousands of dollars every week.

Detroit mayor employs damage control as city prepares to resume water shutoffs

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan announced a “10-point plan” last week, which he claims will slow the rate of water shutoffs and provide greater financial assistance to families facing the loss of their service.

During a press conference promoting the new policy, Duggan voiced the concerns of the political establishment that the shutoffs were stoking up class tensions in the city to dangerous levels. The mayor echoed US Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes who complained last month that anger over the brutal policy could combine with opposition to cuts in city worker pensions and derail implementation of the city’s restructuring plan. This prompted the city to announce a 15-day “pause” in water shutoffs that has now been extended to August 24.

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

Today in the Surveillance State: The Ghost of Seattle's Wireless Mesh Network Briefly Returns

Yesterday, the Seattle Times reported on civil-liberties advocates who noticed that part of the wireless mesh network was still up and running—and registering on their cell phones during a protest against a new youth jail. The SPD said it was an accident, claiming that "the 'rogue node' had been inadvertently activated when a contractor restored power to the pole."

Seattle Police Department "Forgets" To Turn Off Mesh Network

Much like other Wi-Fi hot spots, the nodes can collect and retain the identification of individual cellphone users and potentially track them as they move around the city.

The police quickly apologized and said the “rogue node” had been inadvertently activated when a contractor restored power to the pole. Department officials assured the public that it had quickly been turned off again.

DHS Diverts Funds From the Coast Guard, TSA and FEMA Budgets to Fund Transporting Illegals Aliens Nationwide. Not Securing the Border

Cutting funding from the Coast Guard has me concerned since Obama wants to invite the third world here. If Coast Guard operations are cut back due to the lack of money. These operations might be cut back along the Florida coast where we might see Cuba and Haiti empty all the jails and sick on boat where the Coast Guard is unable to intervene. Under the wet feet and dry feet policy. Many of these people from the third world might step onto US soil with dry feet meaning if they make with the make shift raft to our shore out running the coast guard. they can stay here. If they have wet feet meaning they were interdicted by the coast guard in US Waters, they are deported. If the Coast Guard is unable to do their job because of millions of dollars diverted to fund moving illegal aliens deeper inside the US from Central America. Our shores are vulnerable.

Airport police officer arrested for child rape, incest

A Spokane International Airport police officer has been arrested for first degree rape of a child and incest.

Jesus Richard Guerrero, 49, was taken into custody Monday evening and made his first court appearance Tuesday.

On Monday, a woman reported to Spokane police that several minor family members had told her they had been raped by Guerrero, an airport police officer. Police contacted the mother of the children, who advised she had looked at one of her daughter's social media and the girl, who has a significant learning disability and functions well below her age, had told another person that she had just been raped.

When the mother of the girl confronted her daughter about what she had written, her other daughter was presented and she broke down crying and said that she had been raped as well.

Washington Chokes Truth With Lies — Paul Craig Roberts

Are Western propagandists fooling anyone but themselves?

The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces. Such a preposterous lie tells us that Western propagandists have no respect whatsoever for the intelligence of Western peoples.

Even a moron should understand that if Russia wants to send military forces into Ukraine, Russia doesn’t need any pretext, much less a joint humanitarian venture with the Red Cross. The eastern Ukraine, following Crimea’s lead, has already voted both independence from Kiev and in favor of rejoining Russia. If Russia needed an excuse, the decisions by the eastern Ukrainians made months ago suffice. But Russia needs no excuse to rescue Russians from being slaughtered by Washington’s stooges like Palestinians in Gaza.

ISIS in Iraq stinks of CIA/NATO ‘dirty war’ op

by William Engdahl

For days now, since their dramatic June 10 taking of Mosul, Western mainstream media have been filled with horror stories of the military conquests in Iraq of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, with the curious acronym ISIS. ISIS, as in the ancient Egyptian cult of the goddess of fertility and magic. The media picture being presented adds up less and less.

Details leaking out suggest that ISIS and the major military ‘surge’ in Iraq – and less so in neighboring Syria – is being shaped and controlled out of Langley, Virginia, and other CIA and Pentagon outposts as the next stage in spreading chaos in the world’s second-largest oil state, Iraq, as well as weakening the recent Syrian stabilization efforts.

A month of solidarity in London — does the BBC get the message?

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of London last Saturday (August 9), honoring the call for a global “day of rage” in response to the ongoing Israeli atrocities in Gaza. The organizers estimate that 150,000 protesters attended, making it the biggest Gaza-solidarity demonstration ever to take place in Britain.

The organizers set a precedent by choosing to launch the demonstration from the headquarters of the BBC in London. The choice was justified, as it reflected the common sentiments shared by almost everyone who’s followed the news organ closely. For weeks, the anger at the “balanced” coverage the BBC claims to produce, has been building steadily, as each day brought with it more bad news from Gaza. To quote Tariq Ali in his interview with the BBC’s Mark Sanders: “we shouldn’t underestimate the anger with the BBC at its coverage of the Palestine-Israel conflict. In all my experience, I have never known a demonstration to begin outside the BBC headquarters; that’s how angry people are…”

Tunnels-to-kindergartens propaganda Netanyahu peddled to NYT and CNN is exploded by Israeli news site

One of the most important strikes in the propaganda war for Israel in the last month was dealt by the New York Times and CNN when they ran long pieces giving credence to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that Hamas was building tunnels out of Gaza aimed at kindergartens in nearby kibbutzes.

Back on July 22, Netanyahu asserted– on the basis of this cartoon drawing he tweeted– that the tunnels were aimed at Israeli kindergartens.

In fact (and as we reported), the only Israelis attacked from the tunnels were Israeli soldiers. But a week after Netanyahu’s statement, both the Times and CNN took the prime minister’s claim at face value. The Times’s piece, “Tunnels Lead Right to Heart of Israeli Fear” gave priority to rumors over actual information, and reported that “one tunnel was found over the weekend” in Kibbutz Be’eri.

How Congress Finally Killed Accountability

I’d venture to guess that if you asked most people what they thought of the federal government and its representatives, most would let out an elongated sigh before responding.

It’s really no secret that most Americans loathe Congress. And how can you blame them? Nothing really gets done. Instead, we have a governing body where the average congressman hauls in $174,000 a year while complaining that members of the other party are the ones who are holding up progress.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson on the Abortion Industry’s Impact on the Poor and Minorities

America has a problem, a “respect-for-human-life” problem. There’s a culture of death within parts of our society and culture that is celebrated in the form of abortion. 4 in 10 pregnancies end in abortion which amounts to 1.21 million innocent unborn children aborted each year in the U.S..

Recently reproductive health provider Planned Parenthood has come under fire for giving a Colorado abortion clinic an award certificate for exceeding abortion visits. There are also allegations that a Texas Planned Parenthood clinic had abortion quotas that had to be met in order to meet their financial goals. Far-Left groups such as NOW, NARAL, and the NAACP see abortion as a right of passage. These groups as well as the Democratic party have betrayed the sanctity of life. They see the innocent unborn as a temporary inconvenience, to them it’s not a child it’s a choice.

Boycott Israel: Now More Than Ever

It bears repeating. Committed ordinary people can make a difference. It’s the only way constructive change is possible. Bottom up alone works. Never top down. Israel’s day of reckoning awaits.

For many decades, Israel waged genocidal war against millions of defenseless Palestinians with impunity.

Accountability is long overdue. High crimes against peace were committed. Culpable Israeli officials must be punished to the full extent of the law.

The global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement for freedom, justice and equality works. Applying them with stepped up teeth more than ever is vital.

LNG Won't Save Europe

The Russians are waiting for old man winter to win this one for them!

If the United States uses 7.6 Tcf of its natural gas to supply Europe, it will not have enough natural gas to meets its domestic requirements. Indeed this past winter witnessed the U.S. stored reserves of natural gas fall to a low of 800 billion cubic feet. If the United States had shipped all of that stored gas to Europe (a fifty-day supply for Europe), pilot lights all over the United States would have gone out, as the stored gas pressurizes the domestic natural gas delivery system. Without that pressure, gas-reliant industry, including more than 30 percent of domestic electricity production, would stop.

But what about all of the new shale gas from fracking coming online?

An Even Worse Constitutional Scandal Than Iran-Contra and Watergate

The stark admission by the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA’s) Inspector General that the agency had broken into a classified computer network used by its overseers at the Senate Intelligence Committee violates the core principle of separation of powers of governmental branches enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Along with the CIA’s illegal rendition, detention, and torture of suspected terrorists and the National Security Agency’s (NSA’s) secret monitoring of Americans’ phone traffic, it shows that US spy agencies are in danger of going rogue and need to be severely disciplined.

Robin Williams found hanged with a belt, cops say

Investigators in California said today Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams was found dead in his bedroom, fully clothed, slightly suspended in a seated position with a belt around his neck, with one end wedged between a closet door frame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Marin police have just held a press conference in which they report Williams was found "slightly" suspended by a belt around the neck above the floor in a seated position. This is not a typical position for a suicide, but is a method used for a practice called sexual or autoerotic asphyxia, in which the neck is constricted to enhance sexual feelings. It is also very dangerous. Accidental death can occur quickly as was seen in the case of David Carradine.

This is looking like a tragic autoerotic accident being presented as an intentional suicide to save the family embarrassment (and the profitability of re-runs of Williams' movies).

This should serve as a reminder to those looking for that little extra thrill that these practices can go horribly wrong, especially when done alone.

CO Republican: Fracking is okay, it’s natural for water to burn. ‘Indians’ used it for warmth.

A Colorado Republican state senator justified the practice of hydraulic fracturing — commonly known as “fracking” — by saying that the presence of burnable amounts of methane gas in drinking water is a perfectly natural phenomenon. In fact, he said, the “Indians” used it for “warmth in the wintertime” many years ago.

According to Right Wing Watch, state Sen. Randy Baumgardner (R) was speaking to former Navy chaplain turned conservative activist Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.

Klingenschmitt recorded the interview for his daily “Pray in Jesus’ Name” show. He asked the Republican what he thought of the government trying to “pick and choose” and prioritize some forms of energy over others.

“I’ve been doing a lot of the fracking seminars,” said Baumgardner, “and if people haven’t been, then they really don’t understand it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Reince Priebus, Chair of the National Republican Party: you really, really need to have a seminar for members of your party, who appear to have been purchased by various energy companies, about not saying something profoundly idiotic when in public.

It is painfully obvious that the fracking seminars which Baumgardner has attended have been the ones sponsored by the energy companies which have either bought this man's loyalty, through either contributions, or shares of stock in their companies.

The Palestinian Question, a poem


The Palestinian Question
written even as Gaza is being bombed
again, like some Polish ghetto

to, when and no matter how frightening,
abandon that civilized ruth --

(useful here obviously not whatsoever )
and endeavor to answer with truth --

to, by the lies that are daily invented,
know what questions are once again brought;

to, by abstractions strategic, erstwhile consented,
know what answers again will be wrought;

to, though that answer be yet intuition,
yet be coarse, in part, biased, or slight,

know that facts can, if careful with sources,
be startled squarely into the light.

the power
of a people it repents me are mine
of Zion, a cancerous ill:

the horror
of a parent's cries in Palestine
whose child this answer will kill.

Any worker whose job does not require daily face-to-face interaction is now in jeopardy of being replaced by a lower-paid equally skilled worker thousands of miles away. American jobs are being lost not to competition from foreign companies, but to multinational corporations that are cutting costs by shifting operations to low-wage countries.” Roberts and Schumer challenged the correctness of economists’ views that jobs off-shoring was merely the operation of mutually beneficial free trade, about which no concerns were warranted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The continuous offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs is no accident.

And that is because the government no longer represents We the People, but only the corporations which fund their election cycles.

Americans have become irrelevant and and expendable to the ruling class, save for paying taxes, and obeying whatever dictates they decree with sheep-like, slavish precision.

No matter who we vote for or how frequently we participate in the process, the fix is already in; corporations get the governments they want which will be exclusively supportive of their interests, no matter if those interests are in direct contradiction to the needs and desires of working Americans.

63 Texas Republicans put it in writing: Marriage equality "could lead to the recognition of" pedophilia and incest

Last Monday, Texas Republicans proved once again that they have little grasp of reality when it comes to the consequences of marriage equality.
Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage was struck down in February, but U.S. DistrictJudge Orlando Garcia suspended the decision pending an appeal from the state. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has pledged to reinstate the ban, and 63 Republican lawmakers who are part of the Texas Conservative Coalition want to show their support.

NATO Baiting Russia into War

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

Russia is consistently portrayed in the Western media as the “aggressor” amid the ongoing Ukrainian conflict; however, it is clear through overt moves by NATO’s proxy regime in Kiev, that attempts are being made to intentionally provoke, not defend against Moscow’s ire.

The New York Times, in a recent article admits that the military campaign Kiev is carrying out against its own citizens in eastern Ukraine is overt brutality carried out by literal flag-waving Nazis, with the all but stated goal of provoking a Russian invasion...

Mexican Diplomat Says America Pretty Much Invited The Sinaloa Drug Cartel Across The Border

Reports: CIA Working with Mexican Drug Cartels

The Central Intelligence Agency was intimately involved with the federal government’s infamous “Operation Fast and Furious” scheme to send American weapons to Mexican drug cartels while simultaneously working with other agencies allowing narcotics to be shipped over the border, according to a series of explosive reports.

Citing an unnamed CIA source, a Washington Times article theorizes that U.S. officials were actively aiding organizations such as the Sinaloa cartel with guns and immunity in an effort to stymie Los Zetas. That’s because, according to the piece, the powerful and brutal criminal Zetas syndicate has the potential to overthrow the government of Mexico — and might be planning to do so.

Hillary Clinton’s Criminality in Benghazi

Last week, former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton writes that her handling of the Benghazi crisis of September 11, 2012 actually provides more impetus for a White House run.

Rather than trotting around the book circuit claiming the mantle of White House frontrunner thanks to her inaction and malfeasance in Benghazi, she should be sitting in the defendant’s chair in a court of law.

The question for Hillary Clinton is not whether she should be president. The question is whether she should be in prison.

NYT Discovers Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis at War

Now, as the Ukrainian military tightens its noose around the remaining rebel strongholds, battering them with artillery fire and aerial bombardments, thousands of neo-Nazi militia members are again pressing to the front as fiercely motivated fighters determined to kill as many ethnic Russians as they can. It is a remarkable story but one that the mainstream U.S. news media would prefer not to notice.

The New York Times reported almost in passing on Sunday that the Ukrainian government’s offensive against ethnic Russian rebels in the east has unleashed far-right paramilitary militias that have even raised a neo-Nazi banner over the conquered town of Marinka, just west of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk.

Private healthcare industry buying MPs who will vote to privatize areas of Britain's NHS

Resigning minister Mark Simmonds earnt 417 pounds an hour for his “consultancy” work for Circle Healthcare, a group looking to profit from the massive privatisation of NHS services and functions. He had to give it up during his time as Minsiter, but presumably can now go back to it. Simmonds gets 50,000 a year from Circle, broken down into 12,500 payments once a quarter, for ten hours a month. That is 417 pounds an hour.

This is blatant corruption. Simmonds has no great expertise worth that money, it is simply that the private healthcare industry is buying the MPs who will vote to privatise areas of the NHS to them. New Labour are just as bad as the Tories. Alistair Darling received 12,000 pounds for one after dinner speech to Cinven Ltd, a firm which does nothing but benefit from privatisation of NHS services. Was it because Alistair Darling is just the entertainment people want after a good dinner? No, they were buying his vote. New Labour and Tory MPs are both up to their eyeballs in NHS privatisation money.

The Guardian's Editor Rusbridger - "A Handmaiden to Power", says Craig Murray

Rusbridger’s Guardian has become an unrepentant unionist, zionist, and neo-con New Labour propaganda vehicle. Particularly deceitful is their attitude to the security services and the “war on terror”, where Rusbridger stands revealed as a handmaiden to power. He was, a very senior Guardian source told me, particularly upset when I described him as “Tony Blair’s catamite”. Let me say it again.

Let me give you a specific case to illustrate my point.

On 2 August the Guardian published a piece by Jamie Doward and Ian Cobain which, on the face of it, exposed the British Foreign Office for lobbying against the publication of the US Senate report on extraordinary rendition, lest details of British complicity become public.

On the face of it, a worthy piece of journalism exposing deeply shady government behaviour.

Eric Margolis: What If There's a Real War in Ukraine?

Russia and the West are at war – over fruits, veggies, pork and bank loans. The cause is Ukraine, a vast emptiness formerly unknown to the western world, but now deemed a vital national security interest worthy of a risking a very scary war.

Economic embargos such as those launched by the US against Russia may seem relatively harmless. They are not. Trade sanctions are a form of strategic warfare that is sometimes followed by bullets and shells.

Think, for good example, of the 1940 US embargo against Japan that led Tokyo’s fateful decision to go to war rather than face slow, economic strangulation. How many Americans know that President Roosevelt closed the Panama Canal to Japanese shipping to enforce demands that Tokyo get out of Manchuria and China?

As Obama Broadens Iraq Goals, Escalation Seems Inevitable

President Obama’s goals in Iraq continue to grow every time he gives a speech, and the shifting sands are giving hawks more ammo in their constant push to escalate the new US war as much and as quickly as possible.

Obama’s goals have gone from protecting Irbil to protecting Irbil and Baghdad, and now to prevent the creation of an Islamic caliphate in Iraqi territory, as well as keeping all “strategic” sites in the nation from ISIS control. That’s a big shift, in only about 72 hours since he announced the war.

Retired Gen. Carter Ham today insisted that the latest US goals are going to be “very difficult” to pull off with only the 108 warplanes involved in the air campaign, and will likely require troops on the ground.

William Schabas, head of UN Gaza commission, dismisses anti-Israel charge

A Canadian law professor chosen to helm a United Nations commission examining possible war crimes in Gaza scoffed Monday at charges he's biased against Israel, while Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird scoffed at the UN.

"The suggestion that I'm anti-Israel is absurd," William Schabas said Monday in an interview from Toronto, pointing out that he's on the editorial board of the Israel Law Review.

"Like everybody inside and outside Israel, I disagree with people. Is everyone in Israel who has an opinion about (Benjamin) Netanyahu anti-Israel?"

Schabas, who currently works as an international law professor at Middlesex University in England, is one of three lawyers who will investigate any violations of international humanitarian and human rights law in Gaza.

Why the F-35 has been buried in a black hole

Somewhere in Ottawa, unknown to the outside world, there is a black hole -- a secret place where the government consigns toxic ideas, ideas that it dares not implement, yet cannot bring itself to kill.

The F-35 fighter jet is one such idea. The Harper government has been grappling with it ever since it took office in 2006. It has heard from experts that the super-sophisticated F-35 is not the right plane; that it does not suit Canada's modest military requirements; that its single engine makes it too dangerous for patrols across the country's vast distances; and that its humongous cost -- $45 billion or more for 65 aircraft -- puts it well beyond the reach of the budget-conscious Conservatives.

Today's journalism cockroaches

Journalism in America might not be dead, but it is flopping around in a severely wounded condition based on the rampant dishonesty, obfuscation and outright lying that’s going on. The examples of agenda-driven misreporting and blatant political catering are legion and painfully obvious to anyone paying even minimal attention, but out here on the frontlines of the culture war it is best described as truly bizarre and obscenely putrid.
***
But when the president of the United States evidences pure racism based on color of skin instead of content of character, as he did in the Trayvon Martin debacle, our First Amendment abusing media are silent. Not a peep.

I will carry on with my First Amendment rights in my fight to expose the cockroaches, the abject criminal abuse of power and outrageous runaway corruption infesting our government and media. Sometimes in this sad culture war, harsh words are appropriate to identify vile, nasty conditions and violations, dishonesty and hate.

I don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. Historical strategies have proven that in order to win such a war, sometimes you have to bring a howitzer to a wet-towel fight. Bring it.

Ferguson Is A Perfect Example Of How Quickly The Streets Of America Can Descend Into Chaos

Rioting, looting, burning down stores and shooting police officers - is this about to become the "new normal" in America? What we just witnessed happen in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into chaos. There is so much anger and frustration in this country, especially among our young people, that all it takes is a "trigger event" to spark a wildfire. In this case, it was the shooting of an unarmed black teen by a police officer. According to the police, 18-year-old Michael Brown got into a physical altercation with an officer and was subsequently shot. Word spread quickly throughout the community, and protests were rapidly organized. But the protests didn't stay peaceful. People started chanting "kill the police" and throwing rocks and bottles. Store windows were smashed, the looting began, and people went absolutely crazy. And it wasn't just a few people that were doing the looting.

(In first half of the video Ms Weir lays out some examples of the lopsided, pro-Israel propaganda passed off as news that US mainstream media uses to indoctrinate the US public with the idea that Israel can do no wrong. Second half of video starting around 0:29:00 she gets into the history of US involvement and participation from the late 19th century onwards in the creation of the modern state of Israel. /SR)

The next time you post an opinion in an online forum or a Facebook group message board, don't be surprised if you get a rebuttal from a federal employee.

The government is looking for ways to monitor online chatter about political issues and correct what it perceives as misinformation.

The move started recently with a pilot project on the East Coast seal hunt. A Toronto-based company called Social Media Group has been hired to help counter some information put forward by the anti-sealing movement.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has paid the firm $75,000 "to monitor social activity and help identify … areas where misinformation is being presented and repeated as fact," Simone MacAndrew, a department spokesperson, said in an email.

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

Ebola: joint bio and psych warfare assault from George Soros and Bill & Melinda Gates

Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which has been at the eye of the Ebola storm, houses a US biosecurity level 2 bioweapons research lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Soros Foundation. There, US biodefence scientists have been working on viral fevers such as Ebola for decades.

(Patents applied for here).

The locals certainly believe that Kenema Lab in Sierra Leone is the cause of the outbreak of Ebola there. Bloomberg reports how locals threw stones at the hospital and the police station, amidst fears that health workers were using Ebola as a ruse to kill people and collect body parts.

The fears were sparked by a ‘rumour’ apparently started by a nurse who worked there, who the lab quickly insisted was mentally ill. This is a common and classic tactic, to discredit the whistleblower. You have to wonder how a mentally ill person was considered fit to work in such a sensitive and dangerous facility. But of course, she probably was completely sane, and just fearless enough to tell the truth.
