Ukraine: Kiev’s Ticking Time Bomb  
By Tony Cartalucci
After a brief ceasefire, Kiev has resumed the bombardment of populated centers in the eastern breakaway provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk, both bordering with neighboring Russia. Kiev and its Western backers face a confounding dilemma – continue military operations in eastern Ukraine and create a heavily militarized opposition while racking up a troubling human rights record, or commit to a ceasefire and for all intents and purposes forfeit Donetsk and Lugansk just as Kiev has done regarding Crimea.
Ceasefire Over, Kiev’s Savagery Resumes
While the United Nations has in recent weeks reported disturbing figures regarding the civilian toll fighting in Ukraine’s east is taking, it has failed to report on or condemn Kiev’s use of military aircraft, artillery, and heavy armor that are being used on cities and towns across the region. Pictures and video emanating from eastern Ukraine depict the devastation of air raids and artillery barrages, yet the West and its various “international institutions” have categorically failed to issue the same warnings and declarations made against other governments using military force within their borders such as Libya in 2011, and Syria from 2011 onward.
While Russia’s RT is accused of “propaganda” by the West, it appears to be the only news outlet with international reach covering the fighting in eastern Ukraine. In its article, “Thanks, Ukraine Air Force’: Bombarded villagers accuse Kiev of killing civilians,” the savagery of Kiev’s renewed offensive is portrayed in horrifying detail. The West’s decision to ignore altogether the fighting, only to issue vague, spun narratives blaming all violence on Russia does little to counter or discredit RT’s reportage – in many ways, the West’s silence vindicates RT’s coverage.
As the fighting continues, Kiev will continue tallying up a reputation as a grotesque human rights offender, both within Ukraine, and beyond.
Kiev is Fighting a Battle it Will Never Win
But even as Kiev brutalizes and belittles the people of eastern Ukraine, it is ultimately fighting a battle it cannot win. The fighters opposing Kiev’s military incursions east appear to have established sustainable defenses. The downing of Kiev’s military aircraft and the overwhelming of armored columns indicates a military prowess that will be difficult for Ukrainian troops to overcome – troops already suffering from disorganization and low morale – both of which are only increasing.
The longer Kiev fights on, the more exhausted its troops will become and the more battle hardened their opponents will be. Additionally, Kiev suffers from multiple strategic disadvantages, including a lack of public support beyond the howling but small ranks of Ukraine’s ultra-right Neo-Nazis. This lack of support will become increasingly acute when economic hardship begins digging in after multiple setbacks regarding Russian natural gas, and advances made by the European Union to draw in what little is left of Ukraine after the so-called “Euromaidan” began a process of sociopolitical and economic implosion.
Separatists to the East, The Dissatisfied to the West
While Kiev battles eastern Ukrainians today, the prospect of those in the west rising up against an increasingly feeble government squandering state resources in pursuit of Western dictates is on the rise. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s pursuit of an unwinnable war in the east coupled with merely rubber-stamping US-EU mandates regarding the Ukrainian economy is a recipe for growing domestic dissent that could appear in the streets of Kiev itself. With Kiev augmenting its floundering military with irregular, mercenary factions of questionable loyalty, those fighting for Kiev in the east today, could end up toppling the regime back in Kiev tomorrow.
For those in the east, digging in and standing their ground is a literal matter of survival. The extremists that put the current regime in Kiev into power will make life untenable for the people of eastern Ukraine should they submit to the current Poroshenko government. This ensures protracted hostilities that will last long enough to overlap growing dissatisfaction in the west regarding Poroshenko’s poor management of Ukraine in all other areas. In other words, Kiev faces a ticking time bomb created of its own incompetence and encouraged by those in the West that have propped up the current government in the first place.
NATO’s desire for a “Europe Whole and Free,” or in other words, hegemonic expansion up to and beyond Russia’s borders, ensures that its client regime in Kiev continues pursuing an agenda not in the best interest of the Ukrainian people, but ultimately on behalf of the special interests that devise and direct NATO’s agenda. For NATO, its inability to incorporate Georgia and Ukraine into its supranational military conglomerate obstructs the perpetual expansion it needs to continue its survival. With its greater survival at stake, their is no risk it is not willing to take with Ukrainian lives and the greater stability of the Eastern European nation. The inevitability of this agenda – pursued at the cost of the Ukrainian people – provoking a backlash in western Ukraine, is guaranteed.
Kiev’s Collapse Will End NATO Expansion
The eventual fall of Kiev will spell the end of EU-NATO expansion. The inability of NATO to prop up one of its client states will destroy confidence across all other prospective members tempted by NATO’s assurances. Both its methods of overthrowing the Ukrainian government during the “Euromaidan” protests, and its attempts to consolidate power afterward are well documented and being judged by an increasingly astute global public. The ability for NATO to perpetuate itself through these methods, driven by its current hegemonic agenda is as tenuous as ever. Should the expansionist momentum NATO established after the fall of the Soviet Union be ground to a halt altogether, decline and regression are sure to follow.
With NATO’s brand of hegemonic expansion swept aside, the world will be tasked with describing a new order with which to replace it. The multipolar world preferred by nations like Russia, China, and other BRICS members is already poised to serve this role. With the devastation of the West’s unipolar model on full display in eastern Ukraine, the cause of establishing a multipolar world gives added impetus to those resisting Western advances both within Ukraine, and beyond.

Pro-Russia Rebels Prepare Last Stand in East Ukraine
Separatist Leaders Say Evacuation From Slovyansk Was Strategic
By Alan Cullison in Slovyansk, Ukraine And Philip Shishkin in Donetsk
Ukraine neared a final showdown with pro-Russia rebels on Sunday, after Kiev forced insurgents to retreat to the last major city they control and Moscow showed no signs of intervening to help them.
On Sunday, Ukraine said it plans to lay siege to Donetsk, a regional capital of one million residents that is the political and economic center of eastern Ukraine, and pursue rebels who fled there from Slovyansk, which had been the base of rebel military resistance in the region until government forces recaptured it over the weekend.
Rebel forces, meanwhile, also appeared to be readying themselves for a fight for Donetsk, the proclaimed capital of their breakaway republic.

Putin’s Land Grab Undermines Global Ambition for Ruble
By Ye Xie and Halia Pavliva Bloomberg News
The CHART OF THE DAY shows that the ruble’s share of the international payments system declined the most among major emerging-market currencies in the 12 months through May while the Chinese yuan had the biggest increase. The ruble slipped four places to No. 18 in global usage, according to a ranking compiled by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, or SWIFT.
Putin has promoted the use of the ruble in trading and financing for years as part of his push for what he calls a new balance of power in the world. That effort is sputtering after his annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region in March triggered sanctions from the U.S. and the European Union and weakened demand for Russian assets.

Dozens of UK politicians investigated in massive pedophilia ring
By John Vibes
Household Names From Every Major Political Party Have Been Named In The Investigation Of A Major Pedophile Ring
LONDON, ENGLAND (INTELLIHUB) — Dozens of UK politicians from every major political party have been named in the investigation of a Westminster pedophile ring. Some of those named like Cyril Smith and Sir Peter Morrison are no longer alive, but many people on the list are, and many are still in political positions.
Whistleblower Peter McKelvie sparked the investigation after handing over evidence to police that he had been collecting for years. Peter McKelvie is actually a retired child protection agent who saw countless abuses at the hands of public officials during his time on the job. McKelvie was diligent in keeping records of these abuses and of all the victims.
McKelvie told reporters that “there are sufficient grounds to carry out a formal investigation into allegations of up to 20 MPs and Lords over the last three to four decades, some still alive and some dead. The list is there.”
The living politicians on this list have not yet been publicly revealed, but that information is said to be made public throughout the course of the investigation.

Westminster child abuse exclusive:
Geoffrey Dickens also gave copy of file to top prosecutor Sir Thomas Hetherington - so why did DPP also fail to act on evidence of paedophile ring?
Home Secretary likely to come under pressure to explain how two government agencies were able to 'lose' the dossier
By Chris Green - Indy
Fears over an establishment cover-up of an alleged Westminster paedophile ring in the 1980s deepened on Sunday night as it emerged that an “explosive” dossier of evidence lost by the Home Office was also handed to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The file, believed to contain child abuse allegations relating to at least eight public figures, was compiled by the campaigning Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens, who died in 1995.
Last week David Cameron ordered an investigation into how it came to be lost by the Home Office, which has since confirmed that 114 files relating to historical complaints of child abuse have either been misplaced or destroyed.
Two copies of the dossier were previously thought to have existed: one was handed to Leon Brittan, Home Secretary at the time, while the other was kept at Mr Dickens’s family home and was later destroyed by his wife.
But in a newspaper interview in August 1983 – two months into Leon Brittan’s term as Home Secretary under Margaret Thatcher – Mr Dickens revealed he had also sent a copy to the then Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Sir Thomas Hetherington.

The Fog of Twitter: Ukraine’s civil war and the limits of social news gathering
By Yasha Levine
Just in case you missed it, there’s a real fucking civil war raging in Eastern Ukraine. On July 2, a day after newly elected billionaire President Petro Poroshenko called off a ceasefire, residential areas in several towns and villages in the Lugansk and Donestk regions came under intense shelling and air bombardment.
The town of Slavyansk, which has seen a lot of fighting, was shelled. The Ukrainian Air Force bombed the village of Stanytsia Luhanska. The attack obliterated an entire residential area, shredding houses, people and pets, and littering the area with pieces of intestines, toes and cats — yes, dead kitties. There are several very graphic videos of the aftermath — faces of death delivered to YouTube for global viewing within a few dozen minutes of it happening.
Here’s one of the less graphic videos from strike on Stanytsia Luhanska, where at least 10 people were killed and many more injured.

“Go ahead, film this! Fascists! Fascist fucks. It’s that bitch, Poroshenko!”
But you wouldn’t know any of this from the U.S. news media, which has been soft-censoring and whitewashing anything that could show the Ukrainian government in a bad light from the very beginning of the conflict. The New York Times alluded to yesterday’s”ground assaults and air bombardments” and mumbled something about “civilian casualties” — but made it unclear who was doing the shooting or the dying. Other newspapers are equally mum on Ukraine’s attack on Ukrainian civilians. Meanwhile, US cable network news pretends none of this even exists.
For its part, the U.S. State Department praised Ukraine’s “restraint” and accused Russia of exaggerating — if not being behind — the attacks on civilians.
And so social media has been instrumental in keeping up with events as they happen: Twitter, Facebook, LiveJournal and VKontakte — are all indispensable when it comes to figuring out what the hell is really going on. But there’s a big catch: social media might make raw information freely available, but it doesn’t make it any easier to figure out what is really going on. Even if you speak Russian, it can be hard to separate out disinformation and the bullshit.

Voice Of Russia
Two diplomatic cables made public by WikiLeaks Public Library on US Diplomacy reveal that Ukraine’s president-elect Petr Poroshenko served as an informant for US State Department. A confidential message from the US Embassy in Kiev dating back to April 29, 2006 mentions the now widely-known confectionary tycoon twice.
Back then Poroshenko reportedly handed to the US Embassy in Kiev inside information on plotting a coalition government in 2006, Wikileaks says.
The message was intended for Ambassador John Herbst to update him on how things stood in April 2006, Poroshenko describing himself as an insider from the party Nasha Ukrayina (Our Ukraine), a bloc associated with former President Viktor Yushchenko, passionately welcomed by western leaders.

Kremlin silent as pro-Russian rebels retreat in Ukraine.
"MOSCOW: As a Ukrainian government offensive sends separatists retreating from their strongholds in the country's restive east, there are signs that Moscow is seeking to distance itself from the pro-Russian rebels.
Facing the threat of biting Western sanctions that could further shake Russia's teetering economy, President Vladimir Putin has watched a string of rebel defeats without taking any action drawing accusations from separatist sympathisers at home that he is betraying their cause.
Having initially vilified the government in Kiev as a "facist" junta pursuing ethnic cleansing in eastern Ukraine, Russian state television has dampened its rhetoric in recent weeks."

EU's united front on Russia falling amid gas needs By George Jahn
VIENNA (AP) — A clutch of countries is breaking ranks with the EU's efforts to put economic and diplomatic pressure on Russia over Ukraine and building a pipeline meant to carry huge amounts of Russian gas to their doorstep.
Their defiance of a European Union stop work order is more significant than just another missed chance for Europe to call out the Kremlin. Russian natural gas already accounts for around a third of the EU's needs. The South Stream pipeline could increase Russian supplies to Europe by another 25 percent, potentially boosting Moscow's leverage long after the Ukraine crisis fades.
Adding to the skein of Russian pipelines already ending in Europe, South Stream would go through Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria and Italy in one leg and Croatia, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey in a second. The European Commission, the EU executive, has ordered a construction moratorium over concerns with Russia's dual role as pipeline owner and gas supplier. It has also delayed some political talks on the pipeline amid the crisis in Ukraine.
More https://uk.news.yahoo.com/eus-united-front-russia-falling-amid-gas-needs-093909049--finance.html
"... has ordered a construction moratorium over concerns with Russia's dual role as pipeline owner and gas supplier" is BS. This is a bending the knee to fascism promoters in the US gov't and the global gov't implementers. The US doesn't have surplus gas to export and it would take years to set up the means and facilites at both ends and cost the taxpayers on both sides of the pond a fortune at a time when neither can afford the extra burden, let alone pay higher energy costs associated with moving gas by ship. The true reason for the US sock puppets in the EU for promoting such a scheme against the interests of their subjects is to weaken Russia, no matter that it involves promoting fascism within Europe.

BBC news mentioned the Israeli occupiers of Palestine bombed 160 civilian targets in Gaza. At least 25 civilians were killed. The zionist regime claims it telephoned warnings to the civilian buildings targetted.
Surprise is that the BBC didn't offer their congratulations on this magnificent demonstration of psychopathy.
A spokesman mentioned that if opponents to their psychopathy don't stop firing fireworks into the occupied areas there would be an invasion.

According to regular data compiled by the economy ministry, industrial output decreased by 1.8 percent in May, after slipping by 0.3 percent in April.
Manufacturing output fell by 1.6 percent and construction output was down by as much as 4.9 percent, while energy output expanded by 1.0 percent.

Russian output expands 1.2% in second quarter
Russia's economy minister said Monday that output expanded by 1.2 percent in the second quarter compared to the same period last year, a preliminary figure that is "slightly better" than expected despite the Ukraine crisis.
"The results are slightly better than we predicted, with the emphasis on 'slightly'," economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev said. He added that the "refined" official figure by Russia's statistics agency will be released later.
The [zionist-CIA run] IMF said last month that Russia is already in recession, while the central bank said growth in 2014 is likely to slow to just 0.4 percent.

Farage speaks out over MPs' pay
MPs would deserve a pay rise of up to 50% if Britain votes to leave the European Union, Ukip leader Nigel Farage said.
Mr Farage, who will announce within a few weeks which Commons seat he will fight at the 2015 general election, said there was no case for a hike at present.
But he suggested that if Parliament "actually ran this country" then he would back boosting pay from the present £67,060 to £90,000 or even £100,000.
The politician also called for family doctors' pay to be capped at a similar level to prevent some running surgeries like a "fiefdom" and making too much money and said the BBC should stop showing major sporting events to allow a significant cut in the licence fee.
Asked about MPs' pay during a radio phone-in on LBC, Mr Farage said: "If we had a sovereign parliament that actually ran this country and was directly responsible for the rules and regulations that controlled our industries, that determined whether we succeeded or failed in the world, I would have no problem in paying MPs more.

Because they would actually have to work from time to time?
Has a time and motion study ever been carried out on the work allegedly done by MPs?

Seems like bombing of Jerusalem by Hamas may be due to US' ABC misreporting Gaza bombing. The channel issued an apology. So far 76 Palestinians murdered 0 zionist Jews. ~550 Palestinians injured. Perhaps Obama could give them SAMs and 500 mil or is that reserved for terrorists?

Has the extinction rate increased 1,000 times?
Lots of journalists happily spread the "gospel" about a recent paper in the Science Magazine,
The biodiversity of species and their rates of extinction, distribution, and protection
by S.L. Pimm and 8 co-authors (U.S., U.K., Brazil) http://www.sciencemag.org/content/344/6187/1246752.abstract?sid=1c3f9ed8-fb63-45bf-b507-ca597831de84
The abstract suggests it is a rather careful, conservative paper with some interesting statistics. The summaries in the media are not so careful, I think.
The eye-catching figure is that it's being estimated – and as far as I see, the paper assumes it is essentially right – that the "number of species that go extinct per year" has increased by three orders of magnitude. That's huge and I would surely count myself as someone who cares about the biodiversity problem if the truth were close to this number.
I have no doubts that people have exterminated numerous species – usually by clearly hostile tools such as guns, not so much by some esoteric, hypothetical, and convoluted methods such as carbon dioxide emissions which are OK for everyone – but are the numbers so bad?
However, I tried to figure out how this ratio "1,000" is being calculated and I have largely failed to find an argument. Is there a TRF reader who understands these issues and believes that there is some good enough evidence that the ratio may be this high?
Without the humans, one species typically lives for a few million years. This fact seems to be roughly hold for very diverse groups of organisms. If the "factor of 1,000 speedup" is real, an average species is destined to live for thousands of years only right now.
Are these numbers realistic? Can we estimate the number of species before humans emerged, their extinction rate, the number of species today, and their extinction rate? Or can we calculate the ratio without knowing the absolute numbers in the numerator and the denominator with any robust precision?
