Argentinian Ambassador demands apology from the BBC for Jeremy Clarkson's claims over Top Gear's H982 FLK number plate

The BBC today faced calls to apologise for a Top Gear 'stunt' from Argentina's ambassador in London.

Alicia Castro has lodged a formal complaint to the Corporation over Jeremy Clarkson's 'provocative behaviour and offensive remarks' after filming in Argentina.

'Drunk' snow-plough driver blamed for crash that killed Total oil boss claims he is being FRAMED and says he doesn't drink because he suffers from a heart condition

The snowplough driver blamed for the air crash which killed the chief executive of oil giant Total has denied being drunk at the wheel of his vehicle.

Vladimir Martynenkov's lawyer insisted his client was not guilty of causing the air crash which killed Christophe de Margerie and three others and totally denied the 'groundless' accusation that Mr Martynenkov was drunk.

The denials seem to imply Mr Martynenkov believes he is being framed. After 24 hours in detention so far, he is today expected to be formally arrested, allowing investigators to question him over a longer period.

Mainstream 'Journalist' Reveals Agenda; Calls For Rape, Destruction of Syria

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

It is well-known among informed observers and virtually anyone that has even the smallest shred of discernment that mainstream media outlets are nothing more than the mouthpieces for their respective governments, banks, and corporations. These outlets act as a clear propaganda machine drumming up the beat for war by the presentation of clever narratives, subtle falsehoods, and outright lies.

Such deceit relies on the trust of a beguiled public who simply cannot fathom the idea that they are being lied to on such a mass scale. Indeed, the secrecy of the true agenda is what gives propaganda its power. So it is very rare that mainstream outlets, their “journalists,” or other major figures openly state the agenda that is behind their reporting and gives purpose to their every word.

Soros and the CIA Now Banking on Neves to Defeat Rousseff

President Rousseff’s policies have created powerful enemies within the walls of the CIA in Langley, Virginia and among the board rooms of Wall Street and the West’s most powerful corporations. She succeeded in proving the polls and pundits wrong on October 5 but October 26 remains yet another hurdle.

With Brazilian voters wise to Silva’s puppet strings to Soros and other global bankers, she managed to only come in third on October 5. Silva subsequently endorsed Neves, Soros’s second selection to take over the reins of presidential power in Brazil from Rousseff.

Neves’s chief economic adviser and the man who would become Finance Minister in a Neves presidency is Arminio Fraga Neto. A former close friend and associate of Soros and his Quantum hedge fund.

Global Justice or World Domination

Did the war on Yugoslavia mark the beginning of WW3?

snip: The military spending in the world is heading to reach two trillion US dollars. Step by step, the world has entered a new spiral of arms race. Are we going to respond to it by launching initiatives and activating mechanisms to put it to an end, or are we, just like on the eve of the World War I, going to let this race throw all of us once again into the chasm of disaster?

A short period of global partnership is being replaced by an increasing global distrust. Is there any readiness to seek just compromises in resolving outstanding problems and revert to general interests of the humanity, as embodied in peace and progress for all peoples and nations?
