UNF*&%ing believable - HYPOCRISY! U.S. sanctions against Russia exempt defense engines for U.S. BUT not for all other countries!

This just shows the absolute Hypocrisy of the U.S.! They want to stop the EU from being able to buy any defense items from Russia and stop them from selling defense items to Russia.

BUT the U.S. gets defense engines from Russia which is needed for the U.S. military. So those are EXEMPT from sanctions BUT they would not be exempt from EU sanctions!

RT stringer among 4 people taken hostage in besieged Ukraine’s Donetsk – report

RT’s contributor, UK journalist Graham Phillips is among four people taken hostage by Ukrainian troops, ANNA news agency reports. Phillips has been missing since he went to Donetsk airport on his own while a firefight was taking place.

The other three people in the group are reportedly ANNA news agency’s cameraman, an employee of the press service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, and possibly an acquaintance of Phillips, who accompanied the journalist to the airport.

“Our cameraman, Vadim, was working in the epicenter of the fighting, RT’s stringer was next to him,” ANNA news agency reported.

The agency cites anonymous sources, saying the group of four was taken hostage by Ukrainian troops.

A chessboard drenched in blood

The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake. But it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. By now, Russian intel may have already mastered the key facts. Washington’s predictable modus operandi was to shoot from the hip, igniting and in theory winning the spin war, and doubling down by releasing the proverbial army of “top officials” brimming with social media evidence. Moscow will take time to build a meticulous case, and only then lay it out in detail.

The Big Picture spells out the Empire of Chaos elites as extremely uneasy. Take Dr Zbigniew “The Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski, who as a former foreign policy mentor has the ears of the increasingly dejected White House paperboy. Dr Zbig was on CNN this Sunday challenging Europe’s leaders to “stand up to Putin”. He wonders if “Europe wants to become a satellite” and worries about “a moment of decisive significance for the future of the system – of the world system”.

Guilt By Insinuation. How American propaganda works.

As there are a number of possible explanations, let’s keep open minds and resist Washington’s propaganda until facts and evidence are in. In the very least Washington is guilty of using the incident to blame Russia in advance of the evidence. All Washington has shown us so far are accusations and insinuations. If that is all Washington continues to show us, we will know where the blame resides.
Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?

Jul 23 06:49

What are You Trying to Hide, Mr Obama?

So far, Putin’s appeal for safe passage for investigators has been wilfully ignored by the Kiev regime, which has if anything stepped up its violence in the region since the air crash. And Western leaders are giving full cover to the Kiev regime by perversely laying the blame on Russia and the self-defense militias in Donetsk, accusing both of obstructing recovery and a crash probe.

To paraphrase Obama: «What is the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors trying to hide?»

Fact-Free Zone (MH 17)

When trying to catch a criminal, a standard method is to look at means, motive and opportunity. Was the criminal physically capable of committing the act? Did the criminal have a good reason for committing it? Did the criminal get a chance to do it? One more criterion is often quite helpful: does the crime fit the perpetrator's known modus operandi? Let's give this method a try.

The Mystery of a Ukrainian Army ‘Defector’

That statement about a possible “defector” might explain why some analysts thought they saw soldiers in Ukrainian army uniforms tending to the missile battery in eastern Ukraine. But there is another obvious explanation that the U.S. intelligence community seems unwilling to accept: that the missile may have been launched by someone working for the Ukrainian military.

In other words, we may be seeing another case of the U.S. government “fixing the intelligence” around a desired policy outcome, as occurred in the run-up to war with Iraq.

Proof or propaganda? Is this photo evidence that rebels have surface-to-air missiles?

It is a photograph that could play a crucial role in proving the deadliest of deeds. Or else it could be dismissed as a fake, nothing more than crude propaganda.

At the weekend, Ukraine’s security services (SBU) released photographs and videos it said proved that Russian-made BUK-M1 surface-to-air missile systems were inside the rebel-held area shortly before Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed to the ground.

But on Tuesday, when The Independent visited the site where the image was taken and showed it to local people, they claimed they had seen no such missile truck and dismissed the image as hoax. “All the Ukrainian media is lying,” said one man, Andrei Sushparnov. “We have no missiles. If we did, would the Ukrainians be bombing our cities?”

Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash: Massive rise in sale of British arms to Russia

The Government was last night accused of double standards over arms sales to Russia after it emerged that officials have approved a massive increase in weaponry to be sold to the country to more than £130m.

MPs warn today that at least 251 export licences for the sale of controlled goods - ranging from sniper rifles to night sights - remain in place despite a call from Prime Minister David Cameron for other countries, in particular France, to halt lucrative arms deals with Moscow.

The increasingly acrimonious war of words between London and Paris over sales of military hardware to Moscow deepened last night when the head of Mr Hollande’s Socialist ruling party called Mr Cameron a “hypocrite”.

MH17: Rebels likely shot down plane 'by mistake' – live updates US says ‘no evidence of Russia’s direct involvement’

The Russian permanent representative at the European Union Vladimir Chizhov has said the crash is a "wake up call" for Europe to stop inciting violence in Ukraine.

“It should serve as a wake-up call for everybody to stop instigating violence, stop supporting the Ukrainian government in its military campaign against civilians," he told CNN.

Chizhov also said Ukraine is producing fake evidence which pointed towards Russian-backed rebels shooting the plane down.

“In the meantime, the United States government has said that it has mounting evidence pointing to what they - to those whom they call rebels or separatists, but have yet to produce any piece, any tangible piece of evidence."

Significantly, the Malaysian premier did not make the arrangements through the Kiev regime. He dealt directly with the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Borodai. The Malaysians disclosed publicly that 282 of the bodies recovered so far were to be transported in refrigerated train carriages to Donetsk and thence to the city of Kharkiv before being flown on to Amsterdam. The flight recorder black boxes were also to be handed over in Donetsk by militia members to an official Malaysian investigative team…

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine?

What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile, but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms.

The source said CIA analysts were still not ruling out the possibility that the troops were actually eastern Ukrainian rebels in similar uniforms but the initial assessment was that the troops were Ukrainian soldiers. There also was the suggestion that the soldiers involved were undisciplined and possibly drunk, since the imagery showed what looked like beer bottles scattered around the site, the source said.

MH-17 crash issue

There are a lot of lies about the flight MH17 killing.

1) If You compare the traces of MH17 for the last three days, you will find it was shifted for 100km to the north by Ukrainian air control service right to the was zone. Why they do that?

2) Rebels has no weapons to hit a Boeing-777 because it flies too high and too fast. Rebels has only few “SA-18 Grouse”, which can go up to 5 km only! UA knew that so they didn’t close that area for big altitudes flights. To launch a “SA-18 Grouse” the target MUST be visible, but there were heavy clouds at that area, so “SA-18 Grouse” could not be launched at B-777 even for a try.

3) Rebels (and nobody else) can’t confuse Boeing-777 with An-26. The “Antonov An-26? is not a jet plane, it has two engines with propellers. It is significantly smaller than a B-777, it has a speed 540 km/h, and cannot fly higher than 7300 m. It’s impossible to confuse a B-777 that flies at 10,000m with a speed 900 km/h with An-26!

MH17 being shot down with missile *Video*

FOOTAGE TAKEN THE DAY OF THE CRASH REVEALS MISSILE HIT ON STARBOARD SIDE OF AIRCRAFT

WEBMASTER ADDITION: There are two things about this video we need to look at. First, there is no column of smoke riding up from the ground indicating a surface to air missile. Second, not that it it the starboard engine which is on fire. A radar guided missile like the BUK aims for the centroid of the radar return, meaning in the case of a 777 the fuselage just aft of the wingbox. An air-to-air missile fired from a SU-25 is guided by infra-red and will aim for one of the two engines, which this video shows to have been the case.

UPDATE: This video was apparently of the shoot down of the AN-26 plane and misidentified as being MH-11.

FLASHBACK - Leaked documents show US Embassy in Ukraine is staging a False Flag

Evidence, including intercepted emails from “Anonymous Ukraine” and interviews with US special operations contractors, has led to the discovery of plans to stage a series of terror attacks in the Ukraine to be blamed on Russian Special Forces.

In a series of emails released on March 12, 2014, three in particular stand out. Implicated is Lt. Colonel Jason Kresh, Assistant Attaché at the US embassy in Kiev and Colonel Igor Protsyk, Chief, Bilateral Cooperation Division of the PKO General Staff, Armed Forces of the Ukraine.

Emails outline a plan for a staged attack on a Ukrainian air facility including maps of which planes are to be damaged. Other operations are outlined as well.

One thing is made clear; the attacks are to appear as though done by Russia. This is stated repeatedly.

Ukrainian fighter jet 'near' plane before crash

Russia has responded to claims it is responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, reportedly claiming that it has flight records showing a Ukranian fighter jet was close to the passenger jet before it crashed.

At a specially called briefing, Russian Lieutenant-General Andrey Kartopolov said MH17 had strayed from its regular route and had been recorded in the proximity of a Ukranian SU-25 fighter jet, which is equipped with air-to-air missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US media is in lock step (goose step?) with the US Government's push to frame Russia for the shoot down of MH17, even though nobody can come up with a reason why Russia or the Eastern Ukrainian republics would do such a stupid thing. But the rest of the world is clearly not buying the rush to judgement and starting to ask of the shoot down of MH17 was the false-flag discussed in those leaked emails from Kiev last March.

Common sense says that Flight 17 is the false-flag talked about in the leaked emails from Kiev last March which called for a false-flag attack to justify US involvement in Ukraine.

Common sense says that since it was not Russia who lied to us about Saddam's nuclear weapons or Assad's chemical weapons (or torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, Lusitania not carrying weapons of war when sunk by the Germans) that we should go with Russia's view on this.

Key Piece of Video “Evidence” for Russian Responsibility for Malaysian Plane Shootdown Debunked

On Friday, the Daily Mail, one of the major UK tabloids carried photos and video of what was alleged to be a rebel “Buk” launcher heading back to Russia. The article carried a claim from some Ukrainian source that the launcher was missing several missiles after having shot them at the Malaysian 777. The article was prominently linked to the Drudge Report, and so was probably viewed by several million people.

Today, this meme made it into Uncle Sam’s official narrative, as per the following New York Times excerpt:

On the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Mr. Kerry referred to a video that the Ukrainians have made public showing an SA-11 unit heading back to Russia after the downing of the plane with “a missing missile or so.”

The video referenced by the New York Times was, in fact, posted on the Facebook account of the Ukrainian Interior Minister. The allegation was that the launcher was crossing the border with Russia.

Perverted truth: How rebel mourning MH17 victims was turned into looter with trophy

Twitter is quick, but too quick sometimes – recently it burst with photos of an evil Ukrainian militiaman who took a teddy bear from the victim of Malaysia plane crash as a trophy. But the full video shows he was just paying the tribute to the dead.

The footage shows that one of the members of self-defense troops suddenly saw a teddy bear which apparently belonged to a child who was among the 298 passenger on board the Malaysian jet.

“We want those bastards to see whom they shot down,” the man said, “Do you see?” meaning that there were innocent children who died in the crash.

Then he carefully put the toy back to a heap of other items that used to belong to the passengers. After that he took off his cap and marked himself with a sign of the cross paying the tribute to the memory of the victims of the catastrophe.

Obama Leads Republicans’ War Against Russia

S. 2277 in the U.S. Senate is a bill with 26 sponsors, all of whom are Republicans. No Democrats in the Senate support it. But the bill would be a dream for Obama, who quietly does: it’s his actual policy. It aims to give him unlimited power to do to Russia what he wants to do to Russia: surround it with enemies and arm those enemies to the teeth. This Obama-Republican policy is now before the currently Democratic-majority Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and it proposes that the United States surround Russia with our nuclear missiles and Anti-Ballistic Missiles (ABMs), and with American corporate investments (tax-favored and partly financed by the U.S. public) in Russia’s adjoining countries of Ukraine and Georgia, plus in Moldova and in the Baltic nations near Russia, so as to make that strangulation even more provocative of a Russian military response, and thus of even more business to be generated for America’s arms-dealers.

Follow Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane crash in Ukraine LIVE UPDATES

The UN also urged a "full, thorough and independent international investigation" into the incident. The resolution also asked local self-defense forces for their cooperation, such as avoiding “from any actions that may compromise the integrity of the crash site.”

Russia's UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, said he was pleased that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will have an important role during the investigation and welcomed that fact that the Netherlands will take on the leading role as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common sense, people. Look for what should be there and isn't, and what should be there in the official story and isn't, is a REASON for either Russia or the eastern Ukrainian republics to shoot down a civilian passenger jet, knowing that such an act would turn world opinion against them.

Of course, Kiev has a very strong motive to shoot down Flight 17 and frame Russia and the eastern Ukrainian republics to turn world opinion against them. Motive, means, and opportunity, makes a very strong case that Flight 17 was shot down by a Kiev Su-25, as both the Spanish Air Traffic Controller and Russian radar data suggest. Qui bono? Who benefits? Who gets what they want?

State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative

The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media.

With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Defending the charges at today’s press briefing in an increasingly testy exchange with reporters, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf referred the press to social media, while reiterating that there was totally better evidence out there that they just can’t see.

Webmaster's Commentary:

It should be clear from the MH17 hoax that the US Government still does not fully comprehend that the tactics that worked in the 1950s and 1960s are hopelessly obsolete in the age of the internet.

This is actually a good thing, because the more they play these propaganda stunts and fall flat on their face, the quicker they hasten their own collapse, sending the US Government into the dustbin of history along with that other cold-war fossil, the USSR.

The opening up of relations with China and the "end of the Cold War" resulted in an extended period of cooperation between east and west that was truly unique in the annals of history. But now things are shifting. The civil war in Ukraine and the crash of MH17 have created an enormous amount of tension between the United States and Russia, and many analysts believe that relations between the two superpowers are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War era. In addition, the indictment of five PLA officers for cyber espionage and sharp disagreements over China's territorial claims in the South China Sea (among other issues) have caused U.S. relations with China to dip to their lowest point since at least 1989. So could the emerging division between the east and the west ultimately plunge us into a period of global chaos?

They never know which part of a wing or fuselage might tell the tale, so every small find is crucial.

Daniel Taylor

The tense situation between Ukraine and the United States is outlined in a paper released earlier this month by the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISS). A week prior to the downing of Malaysian flight 17, the institute warned that the West “refuses to adhere to the principles and norms of international law and the rules and spirit of the existing system of international relations.”

Much like the United States Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, RISS provides “…information support to the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation, the Federation Council, the State Duma and the Security Council as well as to Government offices, ministries and departments”.

Russia hits back at claims it supported rebels suspected of downing MH17 Vladimir Putin still blames Kiev for disaster

President Vladimir Putin and Russia's military top brass have attempted to strike back at accusations that they had supported the pro-Russian rebels suspected of shooting down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine.

Speaking forcefully in televised comments on Sunday night, Putin again placed responsibility for the tragedy on Kiev and hinted that the west was using it for political gain. He suggested that the resumption of Kiev's military campaign in eastern Ukraine after a failed ceasefire in June had led to the downing of the plane.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

When a foreign country, such as Russia, Iran or Cuba, is at the receiving end of sanctions, only the people suffer. Americans suffer because they can’t export as much so they loose money. And the people in those foreign countries also suffer because they cannot receive the benefits of American-made products to make their lives better. In either case both governments benefit. How?

The US government enlarges its reach of power much like a two-bit mafia don: “Do what I say or else. Capisce?” It does not suffer because it produces nothing and its long arm is in every American pocket via the IRS and other tax authorities.

The foreign government is also happy because it too is a two-bit mafia don with its hands on every lever of the economy. When its people cannot progress they’re at its mercy: “Do what I say or no bread. Capisce?”

US MH17 remarks resemble Iraq WMDs tale: Russia

A Russian official says US remarks over the crash of a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine resemble Washington’s hasty conclusions on the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The US has established the guilty party "even before the investigation of the Boeing accident. Earlier, the White House established the same way that Saddam [Hussein] had WMDs [weapons of mass destruction],” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Saturday.

If You Believed the US Secretary of State’s Poison Gas Lie, You’ll Love His Latest One

Why on earth would the Russians (who have been scrupulously avoiding getting involved in the Ukraine fighting), have provided the separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine with Buk missiles capable of downing high-altitude planes? Such aircraft pose no threat to the rebels. What they fear is the Ukraine military’s ground attack aircraft and bombers, and their helicopter gunships and troop transport planes. And they already have demonstrated that they’ve got the weapons to deal with those, in the form of shoulder-fired, wire-guided missiles -- weapons that don’t have the capability to down aircraft flying at anywhere near 33,000 feet.

The answer to that question is that Russia would gain nothing, and would stand to lose a lot by contributing to the downing of a civilian aircraft. In fact, we can see, in the desperate effort by Kerry to pin the blame on Russia, exactly why they would never have wanted to do such a thing.

In the midst of the assault roughly 500 Israelis, dozens of them well-known artists and scholars, sent a letter to foreign ambassadors in Israel. It calls for “the adoption of immediate restrictive measures and sanctions” and draws a clear parallel with the anti-apartheid struggle. “The boycott on South Africa was effective, but Israel is handled with kid gloves … This international backing must stop.”

Downed Airliner: Fake Audio Tape Shows US-Backed Hit to Frame Russia

Within hours of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashing into a wheat field in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine last Thursday, Western governments and media have gradually stoked a frenzy of accusations that Moscow had a hand in the disaster.

In a devastating twist to emerge over the weekend it now seems that the Malaysian civilian airliner downed over Ukraine was most probably brought down as a result of sabotage by the US-backed Kiev regime.

The purpose of this audacious act of mass murder – in which 298 lives were lost – was carried out with the intention of framing the Russian government. Washington, the chief sponsor of the Kiev regime, must have known about the plot, if not being fully complicit in it.

Obama: We must have access to plane crash site

President Barack Obama says investigators need immediate and full access to plane crash site.

Obama says international teams are prepared to conduct investigation, but Russian-backed separatists are impeding the investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama wants American investigators in control of the crash site to control the outcome, much as they did following the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800 by the United States Navy. But there is a problem. The US doesn't have jurisdiction. Malaysian Airlines is a foreign-flagged airline. The crash took place on foreign soil. The only justification for the NTSB or FBI to be involved is in the case of a suspected malfunction on the Boeing product, which is clearly not the case here, or if the plane had departed a US airport where a bomb might be placed on board, which again is not the case.

The US is, as usual, sticking its nose in where it is neither needed or wanted.

Ukrainian Su-25 fighter detected in close approach to MH17 before crash - Russian military

The Russian military detected a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet gaining height towards the MH17 Boeing on the day of the catastrophe. Kiev must explain why the military jet was tracking the passenger airplane, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

“A Ukraine Air Force military jet was detected gaining height, it’s distance from the Malaysian Boeing was 3 to 5km,” said the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the HQ of Russia’s military forces, Lieutenant-General Andrey Kartopolov speaking at a media conference in Moscow on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a strong case being made that Kiev shot down Malaysian Airlines flight 17 in order to frame the eastern Ukrainian separatists and turn world opinion against them. We have that Spanish Air Traffic Controller who went public with the news that MH17 was being followed by Kiev warplanes just prior to the shoot down. We have multiple reports of Kiev's security service confiscating all the radar and ATC tapes for the incident. And we have the report by an expert at the crash scene that the damage to the aircraft shows signs of continues rod warheads, something the BUK anti-aircraft missile does not have, but air-to-air missiles carried by fighters do.

Kerry, Kerry pants on fire!: If You Believed the Secretary of State’s Poison Gas Lie, You’ll Love His Latest One

If the best the US can do to pin the blame for the Malaysia Flight 17 downing on Russia is to have Secretary of State John Kerry say that “circumstantial evidence” points to Moscow being behind it, we can be pretty certain it was not Russia at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Click for larger image

To find a lie look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there in the case of MH17 is a REASON for either Russia or the Eastern Ukrainians to shoot down a civilian passenger jet, knowing that such an act would turn world opinion against them. On the other hand, shooting down a civilian passenger jet to frame Russia and the Eastern Ukrainians in order to turn world opinion against them is a great motive for either Kiev or the US to have committed this crime.

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine?

In the heat of the U.S. media’s latest war hysteria – rushing to pin blame for the crash of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet on Russia’s President Vladimir Putin – there is the same absence of professional skepticism that has marked similar stampedes on Iraq, Syria and elsewhere – with key questions not being asked or answered.

The dog-not-barking question on the catastrophe over Ukraine is: what did the U.S. surveillance satellite imagery show? It’s hard to believe that – with the attention that U.S. intelligence has concentrated on eastern Ukraine for the past half year that the alleged trucking of several large Buk anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia to Ukraine and then back to Russia didn’t show up somewhere.

Malaysian Airlines MH17: Weathering the Propaganda Firestorm

The level of unsubstantiated propaganda being directed against Russia regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has reached unprecedented lows.

There is tangible desperation across Western media establishments, their political spheres, and within their corporate-financier funded policy think-tanks as they attempt to reassert their agenda and narrative not only upon the crisis in Ukraine, but upon the entire world as their weakening grip becomes apparent to all.

The dangerous desperation emanating from the West follows the latest in a series of growing failures – the previous and most comparable being the loss of its proxy war against Syria and the desperate criminal conspiracy they unleashed in a failed attempt to save it.

DEBRIFING: MH17 WAS HIT BY AA MISSILE R-73 OR R-27 THAT WAS FIRED FROM MIG-29 OR SU-27, BOTH OPERATIONAL IN UKRAINE AIR

"With the hit of such aircraft with this warhead form many different holes, - says the designer. - In the fuselage, they may be small, if they hit the fuel tanks huge, if the engine is hit then nothing remains as fragments "fire" all turbine blades. "

Judging by the damaged remains of the Boeing 777, the expert concludes that the aircraft was fired upon by jet missiles. These balls are not combat units, and the beam pointed rods welded together sometimes, sometimes not. For established beam rods installed lifting charge - this is the "fragmentation rod warhead." At the peak of approach to the target warhead made ??in undermining the charge, and a bunch of bars on almost cosmic speed rushes to the goal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may explain why the British press is trying to sell the BUK shoot down with a video which is clearly edited from one clip showing a SAM launch, then a hard cut to the plane coming down. The actual impact of SAM to MH17 is not show, merely implied, and in none of the clips does the SAM and MH17 appear together. Bolstered by the statements from the Spanish Air Traffic controller regarding two Kiev fighters following the 777, and the possibility that Kiev's original intention was to shoot down Putin's plane coming back from the BRICS meetings, this looks like a simple in-air assassination gone horribly wrong, with Kiev and the US using the tragedy to push for escalating the conflict with Russia.

Remember the Lusitania and how there really were munitions in the hold!

Remember the Maine and how there never was a Spanish mine.

Remember the Gulf of Tonkin and how there were no torpedoes.

Remember Pearl Harbor and how it wasn't a surprise at all, but the end result of Roosevelt's deliberate goading of Japan into the attack. Remember every time you have been tricked into a war and understand that the propaganda about MY17 is just business as usual for a government that rules you with lies, fraud, and deception.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Israel Invades Gaza Because it has America’s tacit consent

America must soon shift our role from giving tacit consent to an invasion to becoming an active partner in a new, honest search for peace in the Middle East.

What is the end game? To cast Gazans to the sea, where they will be met by the Israeli Navy? To push Gazans into Egypt? To eject all Palestinians to… where? This is a question relevant not only to Israelis and Palestinians, but to the entire world.

What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington’s propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have. One fact is that the separatists do not have the expensive Buk anti-aircraft missile system or the trained personnel to operate it. Another fact is that the separatists have no incentive to shoot down an airliner and neither does Russia. Anyone can tell the difference between low-flying attack aircraft and an airliner at 33,000 feet.

Will Russia shoot down West’s lies?

One gets the feeling that Russia has the aim and ability to shoot down these Western lies, and to show up Western politicians and media for what they are: a criminal enterprise of lies and war-making.

They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.

The trouble is that this time the Western propaganda machine is up against Russia and its own very capable intelligence.

Russia is not only calmly challenging the West to present its so-called “intelligence evidence.” Moscow is now also saying that it has its own incriminating information as to what really happened to the doomed Malaysian flight.

BRICS establish $100bn bank and currency reserves

Each BRICS member is expected to put an equal share into establishing the startup capital of $50 billion with a goal to reach $100 billion. The BRICS bank will be headquartered in Shanghai, India will preside as president the first year, and Russia will be the chairman of the representatives. Each country will send either their finance minister or Central Bank chair to the bank’s representative board.

The group of emerging economies signed the long-anticipated document to create the $100 bn BRICS Development Bank and a reserve currency pool worth over another $100 bn. Both will counter the influence of Western-based lending institutions and the dollar.

MH17: Weathering the Propaganda Firestorm

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The level of unsubstantiated propaganda being directed against Russia regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has reached unprecedented lows.

There is tangible desperation across Western media establishments, their political spheres, and within their corporate-financier funded policy think-tanks as they attempt to reassert their agenda and narrative not only upon the crisis in Ukraine, but upon the entire world as their weakening grip becomes apparent to all.

The dangerous desperation emanating from the West follows the latest in a series of growing failures - the previous and most comparable being the loss of its proxy war against Syria and the desperate criminal conspiracy they unleashed in a failed attempt to save it...

FLIGHT MH17 – Kiev Flash Mob’s Final False Flag?

With little or no evidence to back their claims (déjà vu Syria), the usual suspects and their media moguls are pointing the finger at Russia again. With so much going on in the US and to its special friends in other parts of the world, this crisis event could not have come at a better time. Is this the Kiev Flash Mob’s final card from its dealer at Pennsylvania Ave?

Ron Paul: Don't Blame Putin For Malaysian Jet Shoot Down

Many are pointing fingers at Russian President Vladimir Putin for giving weapons to the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels that are being linked to the shootdown of the Malaysia Airlines jet that crashed in Ukraine, but former Rep. Ron Paul says that Putin shouldn't be blamed.

"Putin is a little bit smarter than that," Paul told John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Friday. "I don't think he would ever come close to participating in an act like this."

Ukraine Prepares Claims for Recognizing Southeastern Republics as Terrorist Organizations

Ukrainian authorities are preparing international legal claims on the recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics as terrorist organizations, the press service of the Ukrainian president reported.

At a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans, "the president [Petro Poroshenko] said that international legal claims are prepared to globally recognize the so-called DPR [Donetsk People’s Republic] and LPR [Luhansk People’s Republic] as terrorist organizations," the press service said.

On Friday, Poroshenko called the Malaysia Airlines plane crash in Ukraine a terrorist attack.

Malaysian jet tragedy propagandized – Ron Paul

Referring to the tragic downing of a Malaysian Airlines plane over eastern Ukraine, former Texas congressman Ron Paul warned against jumping to conclusions over the culprits.

Drawing parallels between the potential for a Russian-made missile system’s connection to the attack of the passenger jet on Thursday over the restive Donetsk region of Ukraine and the capture of US-made weapons by Islamist insurgents in Iraq, Paul pointed out that the missile’s potential source of manufacture was largely immaterial.

“That may well be true, but guess what, ISIS has a lot of American weapons," said Paul. "We sent weapons into Syria to help the rebels and al-Qaida ends up getting it — it doesn't mean that our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons."

FLASHBACK - Russia preparing to develop Gaza gas field

In a significant political and economic development, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Jan. 23 with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The meeting came as a prerequisite to officially sign an investment agreement aiming to develop the Gaza offshore gas field in the Mediterranean Sea. It is only logical to assume that this step will raise the ire of Israel. The latter does not appreciate the role Russia plays in the region, especially since Israel has never come to an agreement with Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And THERE is the real motive for Israel's genocide against Gaza!
