Ghouta, Damascus August 21- committed by the Syrian insurgents  
Rockets in Damascus CW Attack Fired from Makeshift Flatbeds
Video emerges of unmarked truck-mounted launcher surrounded by militants, firing same ordnance used in August 21 Damascus (and other) chemical attacks.
A note of clarification: The US maintains that the chemical weapons attack in Damascus in late August could only have been the work of the Syrian government because the militants do not possess the means to carry out such an attack. The report below proves that the technology used to fire the rockets allegedly used in the attack require nothing more than a modified flatbed truck, and that the militants on record have received training and are assisted by Western contractors specifically to handle weapons inside of Syria.
The very concept of a false flag attack is to use weapons that one’s framed enemy would have at their disposal. This report lays to rest the myth of exotic, inaccessible technology preventing US-backed terrorists from carrying out the Damascus attacks. Considering which party stood the most to gain from the attacks, and the amount of time that has passed with the West still unable to produce convincing evidence, it is clear America and its allies have failed (and will be unable) to make their case.
Tony Cartalucci (LD) , -In September 17, 2013's article, “5 Lies Invented to Spin UN Report on Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack,”  one fabrication used by the West was exposed in particular [emphasis added]:
Lie 1. Chemical weapons were delivered with munitions not used by rebels: This claim includes referencing “Syria watcher” Eliot Higgins also known as “Brown Moses,” a UK-based armchair observer of the Syrian crisis who has been documenting weapons used throughout the conflict on his blog.
While Higgins explains these particularly larger diameter rockets (140mm and 330mm) have not been seen (by him) in the hands of terrorists operating within and along Syria’s borders, older posts of his show rockets similar in construction and operation, but smaller, most certainly in the hands of the militants.
The Washington Post contends that somehow these larger rockets require “technology” the militants have no access to. This is categorically false. A rocket is launched from a simple tube, and the only additional technology terrorists may have required for the larger rockets would have been a truck to mount them on. For an armed front fielding stolen tanks, finding trucks to mount large metal tubes upon would seem a rather elementary task – especially to carry out a staged attack that would justify foreign intervention and salvage their faltering offensive.
Video has now emerged showing just the sort of unmarked improvised trucks predicted US-backed terrorists would use to carry out the attacks, surrounded by a combination of civilian-dressed and semi-uniformed individuals firing ordnance identical to those used during the Damascus chemical weapons attack. Western media sources are scrambling to explain how this is instead, the “smoking gun” proving the Syrian government was behind the attacks, and not the so-called “rebels.”

Homemade sarin was used in attack near Damascus – Lavrov
Russia has enough evidence to assert that homemade sarin was used on August 21 in a chemical attack near Damascus, the same type but in higher concentration than in an Aleppo incident earlier this year, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov said.
“On the occasion of the incident in the vicinity of Aleppo on March 19, 2013 when the United Nations, under the pressure of some Security Council members, didn’t respond to the request of the Syrian government to send inspectors to investigate, Russia, at the request of the Syrian government, investigated that case, and this report, i.e. the results of this investigation are broadly available to the Security Council and publicly,” Lavrov said.
“The main conclusion is that the type of sarin used in that incident was homemade. We also have evidence to assert that the type of sarin used on August 21 was the same, only of higher concentration.”
The minister said he had recently presented his US counterpart John Kerry with the latest compilation of evidence, which was an analysis of publicly available information.
“The reports by the journalists who visited the sites, who talked to the combatants, combatants telling the journalists that they were given some unusual rockets and munitions by some foreign country and they didn’t know how to use them. You have also the evidence from the nuns serving in a monastery nearby who visited the site. You can read the evidence and the assessments by the chemical weapons experts who say that the images shown do not correspond to a real situation if chemical weapons were used. And we also know about an open letter sent to President Obama by former operatives of the CIA and the Pentagon saying that the assertion that it was the government that used the chemical weapons was a fake.”
Lavrov emphasized that Russia stands fully committed to implementing the Geneva framework of September 14, a bilateral agreement with the United States to move forward with the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons stockpiles under the Chemical Weapons Organization’s supervision.
The foreign minister, however, reminded that the agreement did not suggest adopting any UN resolution that mentions immediate UN Chapter 7 measures against Syria, or rather the potential for the use of military force.
“We set in that framework which we agreed in Geneva that we would be very serious about any violation of the obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention, we would be very serious about any use of chemical weapons by anyone in Syria and that those issues would be brought to the Security Council under Chapter 7.”
UN resolution within two days?
The draft resolution to back Syria’s disarmament could be finalized “very soon,” possibly “within the next two days,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the AP.

Turkish Police seized rare Explosive with Possible Nuclear Utility
On 21 September, Turkish Police seized Red Mercury, a rare Substance which is sold at USD 1 million per Liter, at a Police Checkpoint in Turkey´s Kayseri Province. Red Mercury is, among others, used for triggering Hydrogen Bombs. The explosive contraband was seized from two Turkish and one Syrian national.
Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) , - The Turkish newspapers Aydinlik Daily and Birgün report that police in Turkey´s Kayseri province has seized the rare explosive, Red Mercury at a police checkpoint.
Reportedly, one of the three people in the car, in which the high explosive was found, is a Syrian national. All three were arrested for the possession of rocket warheads and foreign substances.
Police had stopped the vehicle during a security check on the Kayseri – Malataya highway, on Saturday 21 September. While inquiring into the identities of the three occupants of the vehicle the police officers learned that one of them was a Syrian citizen, prompting them to inspect the car more closely. The Turkish – Syrian border has become very porous since the Turkish government of Prime Minister Erdogan began supporting the insurgency in Syria, leading to security problems in Turkey.
During the search, the police officers found a rocket warhead-like object and a liquid. A closer inspection showed that the container held the rare and explosive substance Red Mercury.
Red Mercury is sold at USD 1 million per liter. The high price is not only determined by its rarity but for having both stabilizing characteristics as well as a high blast effect.
Red Mercury is primarily known for its use in nuclear weapons. It is used as a stabilizer in warheads of intercontinental ballistic missile systems, and hydrogen bomb explosions can be triggered with Red Mercury without the need of a nuclear pre-explosion.
Turkey has long been known as a significant shipment route for nuclear contraband the former Soviet Union into Europe, the Middle East and beyond. Between 1993 and 1999 eighteen nuclear trafficking incidents were reported from Turkey.

Mint Press Ghouta Chemical Weapons Report Controversy Continues
Michel Chossudovsky (CRG) , - On August 29, MintPress, an American news website, published an article “Syrians in Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack” allegedly co-authored by Dale Gavlak, reportedly an AP part-time writer, and Yahva Ababneh. Three weeks after the article appeared, Ms. Gavlak issued a statement insisting that her name should not have been attached to it and that the “sole reporter and author” of the article was Yahya Ababneh. The Voice of Russia launched its own investigation into this intricate story and contacted Professor Michel Chossudovsky, a Canadian economist and Professor of economics at the University of Ottawa, to inquire about his opinion on the controversial article.

How the Syrian Chemical Weapons Videos Were Staged: Detailed
Video Analysis on GRTV
In the wake of the Syrian chemical weapons attack, shocking footage of the victims of that attack were widely circulated in an effort to raise the ire of the public and spur support for military intervention.
Now, a new report on that footage finds troubling inconsistencies and manipulation with the video that calls the official narrative of the attack and its victims into question.
This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV.
Earlier this week, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon submitted the findings of the UN chemical weapons inspection team dispatched to Syria last month to gather evidence on the August 21st chemical weapons attack in Ghouta.
The report has been used as justification for the US and UK’s allegations that the attack originated from the Syrian government, but it does not in fact reach this conclusion. The inspection team’s mandate was limited to determining if an attack took place, not where it originated from, limiting their findings to a simple statement of fact:
“On the basis of the evidence obtained during our investigation of the Ghouta incident, the conclusion is that, on 21st August 2013, chemical weapons have been used in the ongoing conflict between the parties in the Syrian Arab Republic, also against civilians, including children, on a relatively large scale.”
The determination of where the attacks originated from is of course the key issue geopolitically speaking. If the attack originated with the Syrian government it would mark a serious escalation in the conflict, but if the weapons were launched by the terrorist insurgency it would mean the attack was a false flag provocation, designed to draw the US and its allies into armed military intervention in the country.
As analysts have been at pains to point out, the motive for such an attack has always suggested that it was more likely that the terrorists were the culprits in Ghouta, not the Syrian government. They have been losing the ground war against Syrian government forces for months, and they knew that the use of chemical weapons was the “red line” that Obama had set as the threshold for military intervention.
Those who argue Assad’s culpability have to believe that not only did he suddenly and inexplicably resort to using chemical weapons on his own people for no strategic military reason, but that he waited until UN chemical weapons inspectors arrived in the country before doing so.

UN checking 7 reported chemical incidents in Syria, incl 3 near Damascus
UN chemical weapons inspectors in Syria are investigating seven cases of alleged chemical weapons use, including three incidents around the capital Damascus. This comes following the chemical attack on August 21 in Ghouta.
The inspectors are due to finalize their work on Monday, the UN team in Damascus said in a statement on Friday, adding that a comprehensive report is expected to be ready by late October.
In August the Syrian government allowed the UN investigation to visit and take probes at three locations of alleged chemical attacks, including the Khan al-Assal attack in March.
However their work was disrupted by the August 21 attack in Damascus's eastern Ghouta suburbs, causing casualties that ranged from dozens to 1,300 according to various accounts.
In their report the inspectors confirmed that sarin gas was used “on a large scale” in the attack.
However the report did not specify who was behind the attack, while both sides of the ongoing Syrian civil war blame each other.
Nevertheless, the US and Britain believe that the forces loyal to President Bashar Assad used the chemicals, basing their conclusions on the UN experts’ assessment of the technical characteristics of warheads found at the attack site.
Damascus claims that the UN investigators had ignored evidence passed to them confidentially, while Russia and Syria urge the US and its allies not to jump into conclusions too quickly.

IPCC Fails To Come Clean Over Global Temperature Standstill
IPCC's Diversion Tactics Criticised
The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) is criticising the IPCC for its deliberate attempt to obscure the reality of an ongoing temperature standstill and its failure to come clean about the failure of its models.
The IPCC has decided to discount the global warming standstill since 1997 as irrelevant and has deleted from its final document its original acknowledgement (in its 7 June draft) that climate models have failed to ’reproduce the observed reduction in surface warming trend over the last 10-15 years.’
Not only has the IPCC failed to predict the ongoing temperature standstill, its climate models actually predicted accelerated warming due to the increase of CO2 emissions.
Survey: Global temperature changes

© Spiegel Online
Instead of acknowledging empirical facts and growing uncertainties, the IPCC is trying to divert attention from these key issues by claiming increased certainty about the reliability of climate models and their outputs.
“Today the IPCC has taken a huge gamble that will soon determine whether it is still fit for purpose. Unless global temperature will begin to rise again in the next few years, the IPCC is very likely going to suffer an existential blow to its credibility,” said Dr Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

Expensive Energy Kills Poor People.

"Here’s what they avert their eyes from.

Artificially increasing energy prices for any reason harms, impoverishes, and kills the poor.

Yes, kills. People die from the cold. If the women of Maseru have to pay more for coal, they have less money to pay for food. So they will buy a bit less coal and a bit less food, and somewhere in there, in the hidden part that far too many people don’t want to think about, kids are dying. It’s already happening. The World Bank and the US are currently refusing to fund coal-fired power plants around the world … rich people refusing cheap energy to poor people, on my planet that is disgusting and criminal behavior.

Can’t say much more than that without excessively angrifying my blood, thinking about rich 1%ers like the IPCC conclave and Myles R. Allen trying to make all fossil fuels more expensive, and blithely ignoring the lethal consequences of their actions. So I’ll leave it there, but spread the word."

Grim News Out Of Fukushima, Japan On Verge Of Collapse
A plethora of scientists and experts have chimed in recently on what is going on at the Fukushima Diachi plant that is heavily damaged and is on the verge of collapse.
- Ken Buesseler, Senior Scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: The expectation is with the increased flow from the groundwater and some of those leaky tanks, the levels will now start increasing in some of those marine organisms that we’re sampling.
- Former head of U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Gregory Jaczko, says radioactive leaks from Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant mixed with ground water are impossible to control. What was unleashed was a force beyond human control. What you can do is try and mitigate that but you can’t really control it. You cannot control groundwater.”
- Professor Taisei Namura, Ph.D., National Institute of Biomedical Innovation (Under jurisdiction of Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, located in Osaka): Cancer doesn’t happen immediately. If you don’t recognize it and take action right now, you have no future. We must raise public awareness. We can’t rest assured just because it’s a small amount. The symptoms will not appear until decades later.
- Professor Eiji Makino, Hosei University (“One of the most traditional private universities based in Tokyo”): This tragedy has revealed that Japan’s political, social, economic, and moral standards are falling apart. I think we’re facing a big crisis. I want to stress one more time that Japan is on the verge of a collapse.
- Dean Wilkie, nuclear reactor operations, management, construction and plant engineering at a U.S. Department of Energy test reactor in Idaho: Some of these reactor vessels have had their fuel melt through the bottom of the vessel. We don’t know to what degree, they don’t either.
These guys are the experts, they know what they are talking about. These aren’t some bearded loser conspiracy nut in the basement of his mom’s house saying such alarmist things, they are scientists. This is the real deal people, take this seriously, especially those on the west coast of the US, anyone in the pacific and especially those around Japan and in Japan. This disaster is a product of our greed and own ineptitude to see that we are destroying our home and our lives. -Mort

BIG NEWS AL Supreme Court’s Decision May Be The END of Obama
-Forged Selective Service Card
[...] Alabama Supreme Court to rule on Obama’s failure to register with Selective Service
Next Friday, at or before 11:30 a.m. CST, the decision on oral argument in the Barack Obama eligibility case now under deliberation in the Alabama Supreme Court could come down. You can call Clerk Julia Weller’s office at # 334-229-0700, but you must ask for this case or you will not receive an answer. Ask for status results in the “Hugh McInnish, Virgil Goode v. Beth Chapman, Secretary of State.” Every Friday morning before noon Clerk Weller receives her Friday document release in cases in front of the nine member Alabama Supreme Court. Additionally, you could also call new Alabama Secretary of State Jim Bennett at 1-800-274-8683 or # 334-242-7200. They may have something for you.
This case is being brought by high ranking, Alabama Republicans Hugh McInnish and Virgil Goode with the lead appellant L. Dean Johnson asking the court to determine if then Secretary of State Beth Chapman failed to properly verify that all candidates on the 2012 election ballots in Alabama were eligible to serve. The 2012 Constitution Party nominee Virgil Goode and AL Republican leader Hugh McInnish are seeking resolution and/or clarity on just who can appear on ballots given to Alabama voters. Beth Chapman quit her elected position at the end of July and former Secretary of State Jim Bennett, a long time political figure in Alabama, is now back as the state’s 52nd Sec of State as of 7-31-2013. Chapman, age 51, resigned and is now a political consultant with the AL Farmers Federation as a paid consultant seeking out political candidates for this organization’s backing.
Fraud Attorney W.L. Albert Moore, Jr., no relation to Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, filed an Amicus Curiae brief in this case seeking clarity on whether or not sitting President Barack Hussein Obama in fact lost his US citizenship allegedly in or around 1980 when he failed to register with the Selective Service draft as required by U.S. law. (1) Deliberations here in the Friend of the Court filing involve whether or not Barry Soetoro-Barack Hussein Obama repatriated after being adopted by Stanley Ann Dunham’s second husband, Indonesian Lolo Soetoro, sometime prior to the lost 1/2 year decade of 1980-1985. Islamic Indonesia required students enrolling in their school system to be citizens of that country according to web data which may or may not speak to what is going on here. As Attorney Moore told CiR, absent epithelial evidence ordered by a grand jury, we just may never know what is going on.
Now, a web reproduced Selective Service picture shows the following: ” Selective Service System small numbers 08, large numbers 970, small Cap S, then small 06, then large 32.” (2) Other numbers on the form include “080161, Jul 29 80 with a crop at the top of letters 8 0.” Then we have July 30,”. .?? mumble, mumble. Some blogs state that Selective Service won’t release this form any more. Other commenters and posters say something may or may not come down from this federal agency.
Of course, the largest amount of online angst and conjecture has centered on what is meant by “natural born citizen.” But what if, as Attorney Moore’s brief submits, the citizenship issue is the real problem? What if the American people are just left to keep twisting in the wind as legal mumbo jumbo is equivocated. No member of Congress is willing to investigate and with SCOTUS tossing this hot potato out of their doors, where are the American people in all of it? A Georgia judge last year seemed willing to bring the case to courtroom definition, but abruptly he, too, tossed the case. CiR found out that within the week that he bunted, the long rejected nuclear facility in that state somehow was given the go ahead, freeing up huge amounts of federal construction dollars!

Senator: Politics Reach Civil War Levels
Senator: Politics Reach Civil War Levels
According to Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, we have reached one of the most dangerous times in American history and that politics have reached civil war levels. The headline today on the Drudge Report echoes the same sentiment: Politics in America have reached civil war levels. Harkin even compares politics in America today to what it was like prior to the break up of the Union prior to the Civil War. “This is like the movie High Noon.”
These times are not just congressional business as usual, Harkin said. In fact, it’s something much, much more dire:
It’s dangerous. It’s very dangerous. I believe, Mr. President, we are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now. Every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.
