Looking Through 15 Years of Power: Putin Unveils Never Known Details  

Russian Rossiya-1 TV channel aired a documentary titled "The President" dedicated to the 15th anniversary of Vladimir Putin's accession to the presidency on April 26.
The film will give insights on Russia's policies starting from late 1990s - early 2000s, when Vladimir Putin became president for the first time, up to recent events including the situation in Ukraine.
The documentary is based on an interview by Russian TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov with Putin and focuses on landmark events in Russia's modern history over the past 15 years.

North Caucasus
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a documentary that the leaders of foreign states had told him that in the 2000s they had believed that Russia would stop existing in its borders after the situation in the North Caucasus had intensified.
"I read various documents while being the head of FSB [Russian Federal Security Service], including the interception of international terrorists' conversations, they wrote to each other 'It is a unique historical moment — we have an opportunity to rend the Caucasus off from Russia — now or never,'" the Russian president said.
"My colleagues, many presidents, prime ministers, told me then that they had decided for themselves that Russia would stop existing in its current form. The only question was — when it would happen and what would be the consequences. Meaning that it [Russia] is a major nuclear power."
Russian intelligence services once uncovered direct links between US intelligence and militants from the North Caucasus, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
"Once, our intelligence services registered direct contacts between militants from the North Caucasus and representatives of the United States intelligence services in Azerbaijan."
During his 13th annual Q&A session, Vladimir Putin said the Kremlin is concerned about Russian citizens fighting alongside the Islamic State and added that Russian security services are monitoring the situation.
The Russian leader added that then he had informed his American counterpart about this fact, however, in ten days Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) officials received a letter from their colleagues in Washington that the US would continue to maintain contact with all opposition forces in Russia.
"No way, one should never even try to use terrorists to solve his short-term political or geopolitical goals. Because if you support them in one place, they will raise their heads in the other and will certainly hit those who supported them yesterday," Putin said.

Geopolitical Worldview
"Someone there [in the US], especially intelligence agencies of the Western countries, apparently thought that if someone acted in order to destabilize the main geopolitical rival, as we now understand they considered Russia, this move was for the good. It turned out that it was wrong."
Putin said that after the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia hoped that the West would treat the country differently, however, "there are also geopolitical interests that are not connected to any ideology."
"Our partners should have taken into account that a country like Russia has and cannot afford not to have its geopolitical interests, and that it was necessary to try to find balance and look for mutually acceptable solutions while treating each other with respect."

Russian Army
The Russian leader expressed gratitude to the Russian Armed Forces for their contribution to the fight against terrorism in North Caucasus in the beginning of the 2000s.
"If we did not have the military-industrial complex and the Army, we would not be able to overcome all the problems associated with the fight against international terrorism. Even in the most difficult times for our economy, in the early 2000s, we did not just get an army of a total of 1,300,000 people together, we got 50,000 combat-ready units together," he said.

What is it Like to Be the President of Russia?
Putin who has been serving as Russia's President for about 11 years said that a person does not have a normal everyday life if he is a head of a state.
"It is impossible to live like this, like a normal person lives. You cannot go to watch a movie, you cannot just go to the theater, you cannot go shopping. Well, that is not without a certain meaning and some pleasure."
He noted that "this is a small loss compared to what the fate and the people give those who are in my place, this is to make a maximal contribution, to do all that depends on me or on those who have the same job for the country and its people."
Putin said that he can imagine his life after the end of his presidency.
"If a man can return to living in an ordinary apartment, then, I believe, he had not lost touch with the outside world. I can imagine my life without this post."

Crimea's Population Won From Rejoining Russia - Czech Politician
Vladimir Putin answered a question when does he feel absolutely happy.
"I would say that in general I am more or less satisfied by what we have done. Especially taking into consideration where we were. Well, let's start with the country, we have kept [the integrity of] the country and the GDP has grown twofold," the president said.
Putin also noted that the demographic situation in Russia has improved significantly since the times he had come to power.
"In 1999 and in 2000, the natural decline in the population was 929,000 people, that is almost a million. A million of people more died than it was born. If we had continued losing a million a year, Russia … would have gradually stopped to exist. We did not only stabilize the situation, but we changed it. For two consecutive years now we have natural population growth. Nobody believed it is possible," he said.
Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia could not leave the Crimean people who were seeking to return to Russia and did not want to be ruled by extreme nationalists who had come to power in Ukraine.
"I told them [the Western leaders] that the people are a vital issue for us. I do not know what interests do you protect, but we are defending our [interests] until the end. And this is an extremely important thing," Putin said.
"I believe that we did the right thing, and I do not regret anything."

Russia and International Law
Putin is convinced that Russia is not violating any rules and is acting in accordance with the international law.
"But the so-called rulers, political and economic elites of these countries love us only when we are poor and are begging with an outstretched hand. As soon as we begin to speak about our interests, they feel geopolitical rivalry."
"I am deeply convinced that we do not violate any rules of the game. When I say the rules of the game, I mean, first of all, international law, the Charter of the United Nations, and all that is connected with it. This refers to our relations with Ukraine, it refers to the situation in Crimea, it refers to our efforts with regard to the fight against international terrorism in other regions of the world," Putin said.

Sanctions as an Attempt to Contain Russia
Sanctions are an attempt to contain Russia, Vladimir Putin said.
"We see these attempts during all the history of Russia since the Tsarist-era. This attempt to contain Russia is known for a while, for centuries. There is nothing new in this. We do not have to worry."
The West starts to antagonize Moscow's attempts to speak about its concerns regarding NATO's eastward expansion and the alliance's military infrastructure near Russian borders, the Russian president said.
"And today it has taken such a form that we see. The so-called sanctions," he said.
Vladimir Putin served as Russia's Prime Minister from 1999 to 2000. On December 31, 1999, he became acting president after his predecessor Boris Yeltsin resigned unexpectedly. Putin won the subsequent 2000 presidential election and served as Russian president from 2000 to 2008. After serving as prime minister from 2008 to 2012, he was re-elected to the presidency in 2012.

Vietnam Historians Challenge New US Film Portraying 'Last Days' of War
Vietnamese historians criticized a new Oscar-nominated film about the withdrawal of US forces from South Vietnam for historical inaccuracies.
As Vietnam celebrates 40 years since the end of what it calls the Resistance War Against America, a new US film called "Last Days in Vietnam" distorts history, according to a Vietnamese historian.
The television film, which has won an Emmy award and has been nominated for an Oscar, portrays American soldiers as they evacuate South Vietnam's soldiers and officers. The film focuses on the "rescue" of South Vietnamese people and does not show the devastating impact that the war had on Vietnam and its population.
The US-led war in Vietnam killed nearly four million people, of whom half were civilians and injured millions more. Another 11 million were left homeless.
"640,000 hectares of Vietnamese lands are still poisoned by dioxins, 600,000 tons of bombs and mines lie in our fields and forests," Vietnamese historian Vu Quang Khien told Sputnik Việt Nam.
The American use of Agent Orange, a defoliant laced with a poisonous dioxin called TCDD, caused millions of Vietnames to suffer illnesses. Many children suffered from birth defects as a result of their parents' exposure to Agent Orange. Up to one million people are still believed to be contaminated with Agent Orange.
According to a Ngo Dang Tri, a veteran of the war who fought for North Vietnam and is now the dean of the University of Hanoi, the film's portrayal of the North Vietnamese army is also inaccurate:
"What a fear the residents of South Vietnam's villages first met us with. They had it pounded into their heads that 'merciless communist murderers' are coming."
"But when the peasants saw their liberators, their opinion changed at once, and we, guys from North Vietnam, were greeted with an open heart," he added.
American landmines and unexploded bombs in Vietnam continued to kill even after the war ended. Up to 30 percent of the bombs dropped by the US failed to detonate. At least 105,000 civilians were killed by the unexploded ordnance since the war's end.
As much as 15 percent of the country's total surface is still believed to be contaminated with the mines. Vietnam's government continues to ask the US to apologize for its use of Agent Orange, although the US refuses.
"It has been 40 years, but dioxin victims still have children born with deformities, people are still blowing up on mines that American punitive forces put up against Vietnamese partisans. The dead land of Vietnam still does not bear fruit," Vu Quang Khien said.

Making nonsense the W. controlled corporate media claims of Assad in a precarious position.
Syrian Army Takes Back 3 Strategic Towns in Aleppo
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army regained control of three strategic towns located between Khanaser and Abu al-Duhour in the countryside of Aleppo on Tuesday.
The army units liberated the towns of Ramleh, Muraba' al-Kabeer, Muraba' al-Salloum along the road between Khanaser and Abu al-Duhour in Aleppo province.
The three towns are located in a mountainous area near the border with Idlib.
The Syrian army, meantime, killed tens of terrorists and injured dozens more in heavy clashes.
Yesterday, informed sources in Aleppo said that the Syrian army stormed militants' concentration centers in different villages and roads in the province, adding that scores of fighters were killed and wounded in the operations and calm was restored to the fighting regions.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.

Syrian Army Preparing for Operations to Retake Strategic Positions in Idlib Province
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army is preparing for large-scale operations to regain control of the strategic strongholds in Idlib countryside.
Speaking to FNA, an informed military source said that the Eastern and Southwestern parts of Idlib are the scenes of heavy clashes where the Syrian army is trying to take back control of several positions from the Al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorists.
Idlib province is of strategic importance because of its closeness to the Turkish border.
On Monday, the Syrian army destroyed the strongholds of ISIL terrorists in Idlib countryside, killing and injuring a large number of terrorists.
The army units destroyed the terrorists' positions in Qumainas, Majdaliya and al-Nairab in Idlib countryside.
The Syrian army and Takfiri terrorist groups, specially the Al-Nusra Front, have been engaged in heavy clashes in Idlib since two days ago.

Riyadh Following Its US-Zionist Masters in Bombing Yemen
Apr 27, 2015 Paul Street
TEHRAN (FNA)- Dr. Paul Street, an American journalist, historian and political commentator, says the Saudi kingdom is following the lead of its US-Zionist masters in attacking Yemen, describing Washington, Tel Aviv and Riyadh as three war criminals totally unaware of the calamities that lie ahead of the poor nation as a result of their warmongering.
"The Obama administration is providing critical technical and other military assistance assisting its leading client state Saudi Arabia in the bombing of Yemen. Along with the Saudi embargo, this attack is generating a humanitarian calamity. Yemen is the poorest nation in the Middle East, a country that faces deadly water and agricultural crises and the threat takeover by barbarous Salafist extremists. Civilians are dying, including hundreds of women and children. What little infrastructure Yemen has is being devastated. The US-Saudi attack (backed by the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain) is highly criminal and threatens to tip Yemen into utter catastrophe," Paul Street said in an exclusive interview with FNA.
He further said that the Saudi monarchy's claim that it is bombing Yemen in order to preserve its national security is not surprising at all, and noted," That’s standard war propaganda. Aggressor regimes typically say that their criminal wars of aggression are really about “self-defense,” “national security,” and the like. That’s what Washington always does when it invades and otherwise attacks other countries. It wouldn’t make much “public relations” sense for Riyadh to tell the truth about its real geopolitical ambitions, allied with those of the US and Israel."
Paul Street is the author of numerous books including "Empire and Inequality: America and the World Since 9/11", "Segregated Schools: Educational Apartheid in the Post-Civil Rights Era", and "Racial Oppression in the Global Metropolis: a Living Black Chicago History".
Street’s essays, articles, reviews, interviews, and commentaries have appeared in numerous outlets, including CounterPunch, Truthout, the Chicago Tribune, Capital City Times, In These Times, and Chicago History.
Street’s writings, research findings, and commentary have been featured in a large number and wide variety of media venues, including The New York Times, CNN, Al Jazeera, the Chicago Tribune, WGN (Chicago/national), WLS (ABC-Chicago), Fox News, and the Chicago Sun Times.
What follows is the text of FNA’s interview with Paul Street:
Q. Saudi Arabia began its aerial bombardments on Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi. The monarchy declared end to Yemen airstrikes after four weeks of bombing and killing around 2900 innocent people. Meanwhile, the attacks continued despite the fact that Riyadh declared an end to them on Tuesday. Certain regional and western countries supplied Riyadh with critical support in air refueling, surveillance and logistics. What lies behind attacking another Middle-Eastern country?
A: Let’s be clear about which among “certain Western countries” matters most. That would be the United States, whose “defense” (Empire) budget accounts for nearly half the world’s military spending and pays for more than 1000 US military installations across more than 100 “sovereign” nations. The Obama administration is providing critical technical and other military assistance assisting its leading client state Saudi Arabia in the bombing of Yemen. Along with the Saudi embargo, this attack is generating a humanitarian calamity. Yemen is the poorest nation in the Middle East, a country that faces deadly water and agricultural crises and the threat takeover by barbarous Salafist extremists. Civilians are dying, including hundreds of women and children. What little infrastructure Yemen has is being devastated. The US-Saudi attack (backed by the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain) is highly criminal and threatens to tip Yemen into utter catastrophe.
The absurdities of Washington’s Yemen policy here are striking. For US Secretary of State John F. Kerry to say that the US supports the bombing because Washington “won’t stand by while the region is destabilized” is ridiculous.

Re: Riyadh Following Its US-Zionist Masters in Bombing Yemen
Russia's abstention in the UNSC vote while leaving itself open to criticism from both sides becomes obvious as the Sauds see themselves weakened by the conflict. Putin seems to have a particular dislike for the feudal monarchy even to the extent that if the US attacked Saudi would be the first target of its response.

Where the Islamic State Gets Its Weapons
[Other than "accidental" drops by UK and US]
Early one morning in late February, a European investigator working in Kobani, the northern Syrian city that for months had been a battleground between Kurdish fighters and militants from the Islamic State, stepped outside the building where he was staying and saw something unusual. A Kurd on the street was carrying a long black assault rifle that the investigator thought was an American-made M-16.
Many M-16s, the conventional wisdom goes, entered Syria after militants seized thousands of them from Iraq’s struggling security forces, which in turn had received the guns — along with armored vehicles, howitzers and warehouses’ worth of other equipment — from the Pentagon before American troops left the country in 2011. The militants’ abrupt possession of former American matériel was part of the battlefield turnabout last summer that led Julian E. Barnes, a Wall Street Journal correspondent, to tweet a proposed name for the Pentagon’s anti-militant bombing campaign: Operation Hey That’s My Humvee. And yet by this year, for all the attention the captured weapons had received, M-16s were seemingly uncommon in Syria. The expected large quantities had eluded researchers.
The first Chinese CQ assault rifle documented by Conflict Armament Research in Syria, left, and a detail of the rifle’s obscured serial number. Credit Conflict Armament Research
The investigator urged his host, a local security official, to rush after the Kurd and ask if he would allow the rifle to be photographed and its origins ascertained. Soon the investigator (who works for Conflict Armament Research, a private arms-tracking organization in Britain, and who asked that his name be withheld for safety reasons) found a surprise within his surprise. The rifle, which its current owner said had been captured from the Islamic State last year, was not an M-16. It was a Chinese CQ, an M-16 knockoff that resembles its predecessor but has a starkly different arms-trafficking history.
The rifle’s serial number had been obscured by grinding, and the roughed-up spot had been retouched with black paint. That two-step effort at obscuring the weapon’s provenance was identical — down to the dimensions of the grinding — to that of Chinese CQ rifles that Conflict Armament Research and the Small Arms Survey, an independent research group in Geneva, had documented in 2013 in the possession of rebels in South Sudan and had traced to a Sudanese intelligence service. The Kurd’s rifle cartridges, too, were from the same Chinese manufacturer (Factory 71) and the same production year (2008) as those previously found in South Sudan.
This was a moment of discovery. The investigator, looking for one thing, had found something else: evidence suggesting that the Islamic State had obtained weapons flowing into Syria from East Africa.
It was one significant data point among many. Since last year, investigators for Conflict Armament Research — which plans to release its latest findings regarding the militants’ weaponry this week — have been methodically cataloging the equipment captured from Islamic State fighters, more than 30,000 items in all. Taken as a whole, they suggest a phenomenon contributing to the Islamic State’s tenacity and power: The group occupies the downstream position in a vast arms watershed, with tributaries extending to distant corners of the world.

In view of the shrinking Aral Sea and the Caspian how difficult would it be to make a canal between them and the Black Sea? That would open up S.W. Asia to sea trade and tourism and provide employment to many. Perhaps Russia that is responsible for the Aral's desiccation could team up with China and construct a partial silk cut?
Senseless to suggest it to the zio jackbooted West as it has skinted us by enriching the wealthy at the expense of the poor in the ongoing effort to eliminate the middle classes and whose sole ambition seems to be destruction and depopulation of non zios.

It would also offset any unexpected acceleration of sea level increase due to further evaporation of inland waters and hot air from bent and activist scientists.

Another reason for a zio triggered world war?
Israel and the Khazarian Mafia now secretly condemned and plotted against by World’s Top Military and Intel
April 19, 2015 by Preston James, Ph.D
Much of the World is now secretly turning against the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia Banksters and their main action agent Israel which has infiltrated and hijacked America.
by Preston James
In almost every major nation of the World during the last three months including America, a series of secret high level advisory meetings have been held between certain select top active and retired Military and Intel officials to discuss certain hard realities about infiltration and espionage by the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia and its main action-agent Israel.
This endemic infiltration and espionage against most nations of the World has now become an issue after the historic disclosure by Gordon Duff and the Veterans Today top Directors at the Damascus Conference in December 2014.
This Israeli espionage on behalf of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia Banksters has been known for years by most top Military and Intel, but was not considered a key issue because many at that level were either bribed and bought-off, owned, blackmailed or actually part of the Israeli covert espionage front system.
A new focus has arisen toward the covert espionage fronts of Israel in America, especially among some certain top active and former US military and Intel who are dedicated and hardcore America-firsters who learned that Israel nuked America on 9-11-01.
These folks now realize that the US Money manufacturing and Distribution been infiltrated and hijacked Unconstitutionally by the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia Banksters and is destroying the American economy at many levels. They also now realize that the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia and the Israelis have been using Samson Option Nuclear Blackmail, trafficking in nukes stolen from America, and destabilizing the World with staged Gladio-style False-flag terror.
They realize that the Federal Reserve System must be abolished after declaring it an Organized Crime RICO Crime Syndicate. It must be 100% audited and all its buildings and assets seized, and every single dollar of pernicious usury “clawed-back”. And a real US Central Bank owned by We The People which issues real money based on Gold, Silver and Commodities and charges us no interest for using our own money must be immediately instituted.
They also realize that Israel attacked America on 9-11-01 using nukes and this has led many to believe that unless Israel is stopped in its nuclear terror and trafficking of nuclear Pits from America all around the World, there will be a future WW3 set off by the Israelis which will involve nukes being detonated all over the World, destroying all societies and most of mankind which seems to now be realized to be the central part of Israel’s strange anti-society and anti-human agenda.
They also realize that the whole US Congress has also been infiltrated and hijacked by Israeli espionage fronts like AIPAC, JINSA, the ADL and the like as well as most of the USG, the Alphabets and American Law Enforcement including most local Police Departments which have been trained to treat Americans as evil domestic terrorists by the ADL.
These folks also now realize that this Israeli infiltration and hijacking of America has produced an American Police that no longer “Protect and Serve” their communities, but “Occupy and Oppress” and “tyrannize and murder” on behalf of the ADL and Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens which have infiltrated so many positions in the USG and Congress.
Because so many American institutions of government have been so deeply infiltrated by Israeli espionage groups and because the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia Banksters have also so deeply infiltrated American Financial Institutions and set up their own News Cartel which is run by six Cutouts, it is now realized that any successful efforts to expose and drive out these KM and Israeli enemies within our gates must be accomplished by very sophisticated covert means and the ganging up of most nations of the World against Israel.

ISIS Leader Al Baghdadi Dies in Israeli Hospital
April 27, 2015 Veterans Today
TEHRAN (FNA)- Leader of the ISIL terrorist group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has died and members of the Takfiri group in Iraq have already sworn allegiance to Abu Ala Afri as his successor, Arab media reports said on Sunday.
According to two Iraqi news agencies, Alghad Press and Al-Youm Al-Thamen (the 8th Day), as well as sources in the Iraqi city of Mosul, Baghdadi died in an Israeli hospital in the occupied Golan Heights where he had been hospitalized for treatment after sustaining severe injuries during a joint attack of the Iraqi army and popular forces.
The sources added that al-Baghdadi has been declared by his Israeli physicians and surgeons as to be now “clinically dead”.
The terrorist leader was targeted in an airstrike in Western Iraq on March 18.
Al-Youm Al-Thamen quoting intelligence sources said ISIL had earlier recorded several videos of its leader months before the March airstrike and after the first time that he escaped lethal injuries around a year ago to prove that he is alive until the group can introduce a universally accepted new leader.
The sources added that the members of the Takfiri group operating in Iraq have already pledged allegiance to a new leader called Abdul Rahman al-Sheijlar, alias Abu Ala Afri, as Baghdadi’s successor.
There are also unconfirmed reports that internal disputes have erupted and gaps among a number of ISIL factions in Syria and Iraq are widening over the appointment of the new leader, as the ISIL branch fighting Syria has rejected Afri’s leadership and are dithering over Baghdadi’s successor.
The Spanish-language Hispan TV television also released a report on April 25 in which it confirmed the death of the ISIL leader.
A report released by the Guardian on March 21 said Baghdadi suffered serious and “life-threatening” injuries during an attack in March.
The report, of course, added that Baghdadi has survived his wounds.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – alias Simon Elliot, aka Elliot Shimon was exposed as a double agent at least two years ago right here on VT who got it from a French source. He can also be seen in a photograph with John McCain on one of his visits to the ME.
Considering his cover was blown, I’m surprised they waited this long to remove him. Now he can retire to Florida.

Syria accuses Turkey of aiding anti-Damascus militants
Apr 29, 2015
Syria has accused neighboring Turkey of having provided logistical support as well as massive fire cover for foreign-sponsored militants to capture the northwestern cities of Idlib and Jisr al-Shughur.
The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, in a statement released on Tuesday, said the move demonstrates “a direct Turkish aggression against Syria and proves the open involvement of the Turkish government in supporting terrorism and violating the sovereignty of a UN member country in blatant violation of the UN Charter and Security Council resolutions on counterterrorism.”
The statement added that Damascus has on occasions pointed to Ankara’s support for terrorist group operating inside Syria and undermining the country’s stability and security, and would like to inform the UN Security Council as well as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon about the Turkish government’s clear and open support for anti-Damascus militants.
The Turkish move, it said, allowed scores of terrorists to cross the border and infiltrate into the cities of Idlib and Jisr al-Shughur and the village of Eshtabraq in the past few days.
It further said that “terrorist networks, including Jabhat al-Nusra which the Turkish government provided with training and weapons, committed massacre two days ago in Eshtabraq, with terrorists slaughtering around 200 civilians, most of them women and children.”

Dangerous vaccines
HPV Vaccines and Their Devastating Legacies
By Catherine J. Frompovich
There are no doubts by now that most readers have heard that in the USA there is much concern about everyone being vaccinated with booster shots, regardless of age! See a previous article I wrote about that.
Well, if there ever were a vaccine that should scare the living daylights out of everyone, it is the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine, of which there are three:
Gardasil® manufactured by Merck & Company (approved June 8, 2006)

Literally, the HPV vaccines have been life-changing for many young girls and women – and definitely not for the better. One group of vaccine safety advocates, SaneVax, is dedicated to tracking, documenting, and exposing the harms HPV vaccines have done not only in the USA, but in other countries of the world.

Independent Study Finding No MMR Autism Link Not So Independent
By Brandon Turbeville and Heather Callaghan
For those who may be critical of the process of vaccination, particularly its safety and effectiveness, it is a known fact that there has never been a study proving safety or effectiveness that was not linked to a pharmaceutical firm or vaccine maker.[1] Indeed, if vaccines were so easy to prove safe and effective, then certainly an entirely government-funded or independent agency would have done so by now.
With the recent mainstream media hype, however, one would be tempted to believe that such an independent study has finally taken place proving that the MMR vaccine is not linked to autism. However, brief research into the allegedly independent "review panel" of the new darling of the month "MMR is not related to autism study" reveals that this is not the case.

British Elites Doubled Their Net Worth in Just 10 Years
By Joshua Krause
Every April, the British newspaper known as The Sunday Times releases their annual list of the wealthiest people and families in the United Kingdom. This year was no different than any other for the most part, in that some dynasties rose in value as others fell somewhat.
But if you only skimmed the top 10 of this list, which usually consists of people worth between ₤3 billion and ₤20 billion, you’ll be overlooking a very shocking detail. The list actually includes the top 1,000 wealthiest residents of the United Kingdom, and when you add up their total wealth, it amounts to £547 billion.
So why is that number so shocking?

DARPA Announces Successful Live-Fire Test of EXACTO "Smart" Bullets
A rather low-quality video of the 50-caliber round sought to demonstrate the potential for a "state-of-the-art sniper system (that) combines a maneuverable bullet and a real-time guidance system to track and deliver the projectile to the target, allowing the bullet to change path during flight."
Now DARPA is announcing that they have successfully completed "its most successful round of live-fire tests to date." Perhaps most notably, even a novice shooter using the system for the first time was able to hit a moving target with the guidance system. The target hits are shown in the newest video.
So the entire DARPA admin could be taken out from miles away using their own "tech".

What is the TPP? the TTIP?
By Derrick Broze
Derrick Broze breaks down how two international trade deals threaten national sovereignty and could potentially harm various individual freedoms from Internet free speech to gun rights, all without any input from the public or their supposed representatives in government because they're secret. This is exactly how corporations usurp lawmaking authority from individual nations. How is this still conspiracy theory?

California Drought Update by HAARP Report
By HAARP Report
It's time to start taking these video reports seriously. This video shows a low pressure system being destroyed on April 25, 2015. This system, like so many before it, probably would have brought heavy rains to California, but now we'll never know. This is more evidence of California's drought being manufactured and that it's having a cascading effect on the rest of North America's weather.

China: The Key to The New World Order
By SGT Report
Investigative Journalist James Corbett of the Corbett Report joins me with some very bad news about the New World Order. James says that despite the formation of the BRICS Banks, the Shanghai Gold Exchange and the new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the International Banker's plans to usher in their New World Order remain firmly in place and on track. How could that be when the evidence suggest that the world is moving away from the Dollar as wealth moves from West to East? Because, James says, "At the very top of this Bankster pyramid, the Chinese elite is connected directly in with the U.S. Western elite."
James has carefully documented the "8 Immortal Families" in his report on China and the New World Order which shows how the 8 Immortals are totally connected to Henry Kissinger and the Rockefeller-Rothschild banking elite. This is the way they will lead us into a New WORLD Order.
"The West is being engineered into a world system of governance and government that can only come about through the rise of the East. It's been puppeteered from the very start. There is no doubt that China's rise right now is something that has been long planned for and carefully engineered."
