Pentagon Trained ISIS Unleashed On Russia. By Kurt Nimmo  
Pentagon Trained ISIS Unleashed On Russia
Real target not Jews, Christian and Shiites
June 17, 2015 - Infowars.com
The Islamic State, the terror army trained by the United States in Jordan, is attempting to destabilize the former republics of the Soviet Union, according to Alexander Bortnikov, the director of the Russian Federal Security Service.
“I would like to draw attention to the process of activating and expanding the influence zone of international terrorism,” Bortnikov said during a meeting of the CIS Anti-Terrorism Center.
“The Islamic State is currently at its core. It creates cells in different regions in the world and openly states that it intends to destabilize the situation in CIS and Central Asia.”
The Kurds believe “up to 80 percent of ISIS groups in Syria are former residents of the North Caucasus and the Middle Volga.”
Bortnikov’s remarks reveal that the true target of ISIS is not the United States and Israel, but Russia.
In February the Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov accused the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies of exploiting social media to recruit Russian men into the Islamic State.
Kadyrov also said “the leaders of these (terrorist) gangs (in Syria and Iraq) are agents of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies.”
It is a documented fact — albeit completely ignored by the establishment press — that the CIA along with Britain, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia orchestrated efforts to undermine the Soviet Union in its Muslim states during its occupation of Afghanistan and during the CIA spawned war.
The British MI6 asset Abu Qatada raised money for the Chechnya jihad and the notorious Finsbury Park mosque imam Abu Hamza al-Masri – an informer for two British security services in London – raised funds for both the jihad in Chechnya and bin Laden’s Darunta camp in Afghanistan.
In addition, the CIA also worked to destabilize the Balkans, a fact documented by the media in Europe but largely ignored in the United States. The effort to convert the Balkans into a “safe haven” for fanatical jihadists was aided by the CIA and the Pentagon. In 1993, CIA asset Osama bin Laden reportedly installed his number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, to run the organization’s operations in the Balkans.
In Iraq where it is said ISIS emerged from al-Qaeda, many Iraqis believe ISIS is a CIA construct, an accusation The New York Times has downplayed as a wild conspiracy theory.

New York Lawyer Goes Nuts Over Texas Gold Plan
Establishment defends Fed in vain
New York Lawyer Goes Nuts Over Texas Gold Plan
by Ryan McMaken Lew Rockwell.com June 19, 2015
New York attorney Joe Patrice at Above the Law (a popular blog for lawyers) has issued a screed condemning Texas’s creation of a gold “bank” and has declared it contrary to the so-called supremacy clause in the United States constitution.
While reading the emotionally charged piece, one has to ask one’s self, “why is he so worked up over something that is going on 2,000 miles away in Texas?” It is to be funded with Texas tax dollars, so Patrice isn’t even paying for it. Nor will it impose any mandates or restrictions on Patrice at all. Nor is there any human rights issue at stake. This isn’t a case of police beatings or similar outrages. But, being a left-wing New Yorker apparently means that everything that happens everywhere is your business.
Patrice writes: “You may be wondering why any state would even want to build a gold repository when the federal government already provides one so secure and so large that most American allies keep their reserves there as well.”
As one reads on, it quickly becomes apparent that Patrice is mad that anyone would do anything that suggests that 100% total faith in the US government and the federal reserve is a bad thing. (Patrice of course ignores that many rich countries are attempting to get their goldout of the US.) In other words, Patrice is outraged that someone insulted our beloved government and central bank. Patrice is also angry that anyone would dare suggest that it is wise to keep wealth in an alternative to US dollars: Though in fairness, as TPM reports, Gov. Abbott doesn’t believe that U.S. dollars are real money, so maybe it’s OK to waste them:
“And the new depository will not just be a well-guarded warehouse for that bullion. The law Abbott signed calls for the creation of an electronic payments system that will allow gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and rhodium depositors to write checks against their accounts, making the depository into a bank – one that will create a metal-backed money supply intended to challenge the paper currency issued by the Federal Reserve – or “Yankee dollars” as one of the law’s top supporters calls them.”
You say, “Yankee dollars,” I say, “the global reserve currency.”
Ah yes, the dollar is the global reserve currency. Therefore, you should keep 100% of your wealth in dollars. That’s an interesting position, and all I can say is, don’t take investment advice from Joe Patrice. Unless, of course, you believe that risk doesn’t exist.

What Sanctions? Gazprom to Build Two New Gas Pipelines to Germany
The pipelines will be constructed jointly with European oil majors
RI Staff
Russia’s oil and gas giant Gazprom is eager to increase deliveries to Asia, but that hasn’t stopped it from inking new deals with Germany. Sputnik reports:
Russian energy giant Gazprom announced Thursday that it was intending to construct two a double pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea with E.ON, Shell and OMV.
“The memorandum demonstrates the intention of the sides to implement the project of construction of two strings of the pipeline from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to the coast of Germany. The capacity of the new pipeline will be 55 billion cubic meters annually,” Gazprom said in a statement.
This is just another indicator that western oil majors are against cutting ties with Russia. And yet, Europe continues to cling to its self-destructive sanctions.

Chechen leader blames western special services for killing opposition figure Nemtsov
June 18, 2015
Ramzan Kadyrov has told reporters that the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov could have been masterminded by US and Ukrainian special services, with the help of Chechen terrorists.
“I hold that the traces of this crime should be looked for not in Chechnya but in Ukraine’s State Security Service and further in the United States,” Interfax news agency quoted Kadyrov as saying Thursday.
The Chechen leader also said that there were many preconditions, hinting at the possibility that Nemtsov’s murder could have been organized by Adam Osmayev, an ethnic Chechen who was heading one of the volunteer units fighting on the side of pro-Kiev forces in the military conflict in southeast Ukraine. Kadyrov added: “Osmayev has been working for Western special services and he knows very well how to get rid of a person who causes problems.”
“The organizers of the murder used Nemtsov for their own purposes and then killed him, and now they are seeking to shift the blame on somebody,” Kadyrov explained.

‘Powerful People In The West And In Kiev Do Not Want A Ukrainian Settlement’
ICH. Prof. Stephen Cohen
I’ve said this for months could easily become as dangerous as the Cuban missile crisis was.
June 19, 2015

Arguing that there is a peace and war party in almost every capital, Professor Stephen Cohen, scholar of Russian studies at Princeton and New York Universities, told RT he believes the war party in Washington is against the Minsk agreement.
US policies in Ukraine have failed to achieve their goals. With violence flaring up once again, and relations fraught with tensions, diplomacy seems to be the best option. But is there a consensus in the US on the acceptable terms of a political settlement, and how are the dynamics of US internal politics likely to affect its policy toward Russia, especially as the 2016 presidential race heats up?
To find answers to these questions RT’s program “Worlds Apart” talked to Professor Stephen Cohen, Professor of Russian Studies and History Emeritus at NYU, and Professor of Politics Emeritus at Princeton University.

Farage: I’m ready to lead EU referendum ‘No’ campaign
June 17, 2015
UKIP leader Nigel Farage has said he would be happy to take up the reins of the ‘No’ campaign in the run-up to Britain’s in/out referendum on EU membership.
His comments follow skepticism among the anti-EU camp that Farage is too controversial a figure to lead the campaign.
In an interview on LBC Radio, Farage said he suspected the role would end up going to a non-political figure, but that he hoped he would remain a politicized voice in the campaign.
He said UKIP would be “extremely active” throughout the campaigning process, claiming his was the only Eurosceptic party with a “big grassroots structure on the ground.”
“The role of UKIP, the role of myself, will be important,” he said. “That’s not saying that I have to take the lead.”
Farage added: “I would be prepared to, of course. But I suspect what we will see is somebody coming from completely outside of normal politics, somebody from the world of business or entertainment that hasn’t got any political baggage at all. I think someone like that may well emerge.”

Attempts to demonize firearms backfire spectacularly
#WeWillShootBack: Blacks Issue Call to Arms in Wake of Charleston Shooting
by Adan Salazar Infowars June 19, 2015
In the wake of the shooting at a black church in Charleston that took nine lives Wednesday, many calls were issued for stricter gun control in America.
But others frustrated with what the media portrays as an increase in white on black crime took the shooting as a sign to procure guns in self defense, starting the Twitter hashtag #WeWillShootBack as a means of communicating they will not be victimized by white supremacists.
[Several tweets featured]
In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, President Obama and Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. both issued statements blaming the Second Amendment for what took place.
Today it emerged, however, that the 21-year-old shooter actually purchased his firearm legally, overcoming the background check obstacle which leftists claim prevents criminals from buying guns.
Blacks have historically had their right to own guns suppressed. During colonization, Virginia had a race-based gun ban in place entitled “Prohibiting Negroes, slave and free, from carrying weapons including clubs.” Under the Civil War era “Slave Codes” and “Black Codes,” several states also had laws prohibiting blacks from owning firearms.

6th mass extinction already here as species disappear 100 times faster - study
June 20, 2015
The world is on the brink of its sixth mass extinction, as animals are disappearing 100 times faster than previously, scientists warned in a new report. They also say humanity could be among the first victims of this extinction.
According to the Princeton, Stanford and UC Berkeley scientists, rates like these have not been seen since the last age of the dinosaurs some 66 million years ago. Paul Ehlrich of Stanford says the data “shows without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event."
The data demonstrates “without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event,” Ehlrich, whose work on the disappearance of species dates back to 1980, said.
The report has been drawn to counter critics who believe the data is exaggerated. Ehlrich and co-authors seek to demonstrate, using conservative assumptions, that the new phase is already well under way, seeing as they are “far above the ‘background’ rates prevailing in the five preceding mass extinctions.”
The background rate is the normal rate of disappearance between mass extinctions.
“If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover, and our species itself would likely disappear early on,” lead author Gerardo Ceballos of the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico said in support.
But the background rate is difficult to estimate, so the scientists had to improvise with techniques. Humanity has gaps in its knowledge of what happened over Earth’s 4.5 billion-year lifespan.
The team used a past extinction rate that was twice as high as the estimates widely used in previous studies, and compared that rate to the most conservative estimates. In this way, they brought the two approximate rates as close to each other as possible – the current and all-time background rates.

Russian military to order major research to counter ‘color revolutions’
June 19, 2015
Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has told reporters that the military will sponsor a major research of coups conducted through mass protest – so called ‘color revolutions’ – to prevent the situations that Russia faced in 1991 and 1993.
“Some people say that the military should not be involved in political processes, some say the direct opposite. We will order a study on the phenomenon of color revolutions and the military’s role in their prevention,” Shoigu told the participants of the Army-2015 political forum Friday.
“We have no right to allow the repetitions of the collapses of 1991 and 1993,” he said. “How to do it is another story, but it is clear that we must deal with the situation. We must understand how to prevent this and how to teach the younger generation so that it supported the calm and gradual development of our country.”
The minister added that the consequences of color revolutions can be now observed in many Arab nations and also in Serbia. He also said that the Ukrainian crisis that started in 2014 also was “a major tragedy in the row of color revolutions.”

Greek bank run: Deposit withdrawals hit €3 billion in four days - media
June 19, 2015
Panicking savers in Greece have withdrawn over €3 billion in deposits from the country’s banks between June 15 and June 18, with a record €1 billion having left Greek banks on Thursday, banking sources told Reuters.
As the fears of Greece defaulting on its €316 billion debt and leaving the eurozone are escalating, people in Greece are rushing to take their savings out of banks. An estimated €200-€300 million a day was leaving the country prior to this week. Between October and April €30 billion left Greek banks, according to data from the Bank of Greece.
The panic accelerated Thursday ahead of the Eurogroup meeting in Luxembourg where European Finance Ministers and Greek officials were to discuss the ways Athens could deal with its international creditors. The meeting however did not show any feasible results.

Europe in Denial as Tsipras Cuts Deals With Moscow
Greece and Russia are building bridges and Europe can’t accept it
Johanna Ross
The Greeks and Russians feel humiliated – this is The Guardian’s latest take on the current rift in Europe.
[...] The excitement of being in the EU has waned for the Greeks. It has been quite clear from the actions of their European ‘partners’ over the last few years that friendship was not an option; it has been difficult enough for Greece and Russia to gain basic respect. The audacity of the EC to announce a sum of 11 billion Euros as part of their ‘Support Package to Ukraine’ — a country not even in the EU — while Greece floundered, was a clear message. Friendship, at any level, also requires a degree of trust to be genuine and something which after the Ukraine crisis has been lost completely.
In any case the relationships within the EU itself are superficial shows of unity. We all know Britain’s current position on EU membership, and while jumping on the bandwagon when it came to the Ukraine crisis, its role in its resolution proved that it is nothing more than a ‘Yes man’. Britain’s scheduled referendum on an exit from the EU at this time is just another indication of how flimsy these European relationships are. And I would predict that if Britain were to leave the EU, we’d see another Deutsch-dominated Europe for the first time since the Second World War. With Merkel at the helm, it’s almost there already.
So let’s be honest about what’s at stake here. As much as certain quarters would like to believe it in Europe, the Greeks and Russians aren’t stupid. Tsipras didn’t go to Moscow because he was humiliated. He went there to do business. Russia currently seems to be the only significant player with any common sense and credibility left and fundamentally the only one that can be trusted. Hence this latest $2 billion deal signed by both parties on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline (pictured below) with Russia also stating that it would finance future infrastructure projects in Greece. Cheaper gas, increased Russian investment and tourism sounds like just the economic boost it needs.

NATO Ratchets up Tensions in the Baltic
NATO’s exercises in the Baltics are provoking a Russian response leading to increased tension
Jared Sharp
NATO is on the move again, conducting a military BALTOPS (Baltic Operations) exercise in Ustka, Poland just west of the border from Kaliningrad in Russia.
This could be viewed as a direct provocation towards Russia. The increase in tension caused by such close-border exercises is justified by NATO blaming what they call Russian aggression in “annexing” Crimea. This, despite observers confirming the free and fair referendum in which the Crimean people overwhelmingly voted for reunification with Russia.
What’s more, NATO’s aggressive posturing is merely one of many such operations planned to be conducted across Eastern Europe.
The NATO exercise entitled Noble Jump includes attack helicopters, fighter jets, military hovercraft, amphibious landing vehicles, warships, and nearly 6,000 personnel, all taking part in drills to capture make-believe “enemy held” (Russian) territory.

Kiev Is Waking up to Just How Dangerous the Oligarch Kolomoisky Is
Detailed insight into Ukraine oligarch wars
Gracchus Babeuf (Slavyangrad) Gleb Bazov
Babeuf wrote this article in the span of a few short days when Kolomoiskiy looked like he was about to make a stand against Poroshenko. The analysis was completed on March 25, 2015, and sent to me, but not published at the time—something for which only I am to blame. In some ways, however, it all worked out for the best, as we are now witnessing a renewed struggle for power between the Ukrainian oligarchs, exemplified by Poroshenko-led dismissal of Nalivaychenko, the former head of the Ukrainian State Security Service (“SBU”) and his prior attempts to do away with Yatsenyuk and even to assail the mostly unassailable Avakov, the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of the Interior.
The prescience of Babeuf’s analysis (which, I might add, disagreed with my own take on the subject matter, as I expected Kolomoiskiy actually to fight his resignation, with arms if necessary) will serve for many as an outline for an excellent roadmap to understanding the inside workings of the Junta authorities and the Ukrainian oligarchic circles in relation to their American overseers. An outline which I, for one, hope Gracchus Babeuf will continue to expand on in the future.

Legendary Investor Jim Rogers: 'Russia has Changed, Russia is Rising, I’m Investing' (Audio)
Jim Rogers explains why he’s bullish on Russia
“I was bearish on Russia for forty-seven years, and the last couple of years Russia has changed, so I’m changing.”

Fri, Jun 19
June 19 (Sputnik) - Despite the Western efforts to discourage investors from participating in the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, the affair is in full swing. Jim Rogers, legendary investor and chairman of Beeland Interests, is in attendance, and he told Radio Sputnik that the Russian economy may be the most promising market for fellow investors.
“Well, it’s gonna change the world,” Rogers says when asked about the role of the BRICS Bank. “You know, the world has been dominated by IMF, World Bank, and other American-controlled institutions, and that’s never good, that only one players in charge of everything. So now we’re going to have competition…
“This will be very good for the world,” he adds.
