Perhaps This Is Obama’s Grand Strategy  
By Eric Zuesse Global Research, July 21, 2015

Washingtonsblog’s anonymous founder and principal commentator is one of the most deeply knowledgeable writers on current events, and on July 19th he headlined “Governments Worldwide Will Crash the First Week of October … According to 2 Financial Forecasters.” He noted that both Martin Armstrong and Larry Edelson, two of the most respected stock-market predictors, are independently of each other predicting that “virtually all governments worldwide will be hit with a gigantic economic crisis in the first week of October 2015,” due to “a collapse of government solvency” as ricocheting government defaults spiral each other downward; and, because the U.S. won’t be forced to crash as quickly as Europe and Japan, there will then be a temporary worldwide rush into U.S. corporate stocks and bonds, especially stocks, as the short-term safe haven for investors fleeing from sovereign (government) bonds.

The next day, July 20th, Michael Meier’s German Economic News bannered “Clear Signs of Relaxation Between Obama and Putin,” and reported: “The nuclear deal with Iran and the withdrawal of heavy weapons by the rebels in the eastern Ukraine are clear signs of a détente between Russia and the US. The EU now needs to quickly develop their own strategy. Otherwise, the Europeans will have to pay for the chaos in Ukraine.” The article continues, addressing Europeans:

Your countries have to pay an enormous price for the sanctions [against Russia, and, earlier, against Iran]. With regard to a possible new global economic crisis, the loss of the Russian sales market has been devastating. The hope to do business quickly after the nuclear deal with Tehran could prove to be an illusion. Even the lightning-trip by Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel to Tehran will change little. Unlike Russia, the EU towards Iran continued business with Iran during the sanctions, but was stubborn to pay the extra cost of following U.S. requirements. Meanwhile, Russia has caught up technologically and is now sure to be able to step up its exports to Iran and outside of the arms industry [and thus will be less dependent upon imports from Europe after the anti-Russia sanctions are lifted].
The greatest danger, however, threatening the EU financially is in Ukraine: The EU echoed US policy there [though, unlike the U.S., the EU has lost hugely from U.S. Ukrainian policy]: [This U.S. policy was] Ukraine should join the EU and end all connections with Russia. For the U.S., Ukraine is far away, no real trading-partner [though it might become one after the February 2014 change of government in Ukraine. Not so for Europe: Ukraine is now, in effect, inside Europe.]. …
The reckless Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine took the European taxpayer immediately into the obligation: As in Greece, the Americans will insist that Europeans must keep Ukraine financially afloat. [Whereas the U.S. has few financial obligations there, the EU now is committed to Ukraine via its post-February-2014 Association Agreement. And Russia has already lost what it had risked in Ukraine, and now is relatively immune to Ukraine’s continuing collapse.] The Russians can always carry out their threat, and stop the gas deliveries through Ukraine [if the EU does not pay Ukraine, and Ukraine not pay Russia]. …
The costs of the “rescue” of Ukraine will exceed those for Greece many times.

So, with Japan’s having postponed its crash as long as possible, and the EU’s crash being now imminent, a flood of foreign billionaires’ cash into U.S. equities seems assured.

Now consider this 12 March 2013 explanation from me of how the Obama Administration, with the acquiescence of both Parties in Congress, simply postposed until at least 2019 what will probably be the biggest U.S. economic crash ever, and focus especially upon this graph in that article:

The article explains: “So, basically, another Great Depression seems to be predicted here. According to their model, it will probably happen after the interest-rate on 10-year Treasuries rises above 5.2%, when the unrealism of current official projections has become sufficiently clear to the world so that the federal debt resumes soaring and the interest-portion of federal expenditures rises similarly. That would be some time after 2018.”

However: What would happen if, in, say, October 2015, all the rest of the industrialized world crashes and their investors are pouring into U.S. equities? In that case, the Federal Reserve will be able to end their QE and raise U.S. interest rates beyond the magical 5.2% with impunity.

Has Obama’s strategy been to weaken all other major economies so that the U.S. will still be able to avoid a collapse even while the wealth-disparity between America’s rich and poor continues getting ever-wider (largely via the Fed’s monetary policies reinforcing the fiscal policies from a heavily Republican pro-austerity Congress)? For example, is this part of the reason for what Obama has been doing to Ukraine, and to Russia, and soon stopping doing to Iran? Has he been preparing to get foreign aristocrats to pour their money into Wall Street?

If this is true, then how did he manage to get the EU to cooperate with this policy, which is economically suicidal for them? What are even European aristocracies expecting to win from this? Obviously, the European public lose enormously: their former welfare states will transform, like in Greece and in Ukraine, into high-tax low-welfare virtual national prisons, even as refugees pour into them from the wars that America has largely engineered in northern Africa and in Ukraine. Is Obama a brilliant psychopath?

These questions are not hyperbollic. Clearly, Obama is a brilliant and enormously successful liar. Clearly, benign interpretations of his Presidency are either stupid or lying, and they can’t explain in any intelligently credible way his actions, nor comport his actions with his words. For some reason, Americans assume that they should continue trusting him, and much of the rest of the world does, too, even though he is on record as being a strong defender of lying in political matters — he believes that politicians have an unlimited right to lie to the public.

How long will the public’s suckerdom continue, and why has it continued as long as it has?

West Flirts With Fascism – Again
SPUTNIK By Finian Cunningham on July 24, 2015
Here is a recent snapshot of the disturbing trend. Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond this week openly voiced his frustration with democratic process as something that is “cumbersome” for the pursuit of foreign military objectives.
There seems little doubt that Western so-called democracies are gravitating toward increasingly autocratic politics. Executive power is being exercised by secret policy formulation, to be imposed on the electorate, or on other countries, with no regard for democratic oversight.
Western states are once again flirting with fascism – as in earlier dark periods over the past century.
Here is a recent snapshot of the disturbing trend. Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond this week openly voiced his frustration with democratic process as something that is “cumbersome” for the pursuit of foreign military objectives.
Meanwhile, America’s top General Wesley Clark told US media that Washington needs the power to round up “disloyal” citizens in internment camps without due legal process.
The United States should revive World War II-style internment camps for “disloyal Americans,” retired general and former Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark said on Friday.
The United States should revive World War II-style internment camps for “disloyal Americans,” retired general and former Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark said on Friday.
Added to this is the condemnation also this week by France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius of a French parliamentary delegation travelling to Russia on a fact-finding visit over the Ukraine crisis.
Then we have the ongoing diktat to the Greek people of their country’s financial policies, imposed by the European Union’s creditors led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
In each instance we see a sinister logic emboldened among Western states, whereby democratic mandate and legal standards are over-ridden by the ruling political class. What other way to describe this tendency but as a form of incipient fascism?

EU Visa-Slams Ukrainians After February 2014 Ukrainian Coup
By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, July 24, 2015
Although the coup in Ukraine in February 2014 was allegedly done in order to get Ukraine into the European Union (because the overthrown President Viktor Yanukovych had just before declined the EU’s offer for Ukraine to join the EU), European countries are now denying Ukrainians visas even more than they had been doing before the coup and its follow-on Association Agreement with the EU.
Ukraine’s independent European Integration website headlined on July 21st, “The Percentage of Refusals Increased,” and reported that, “Of the 22 countries in the Schengen area [the countries where visas are not required], 16 increased the percentage of refusals of entrance to Ukrainians as compared to the year 2013,” which was the final year prior to the coup.
Furthermore: “Switzerland and Finland denied visas to Ukrainians at a rate three times higher than in 2013, and Spain, Portugal, Greece and Sweden denied visas almost twice as much as in 2013.”
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin “admitted: Some consulates deliberately do not give visas to Ukrainians, even when they are eligible.”

China’s Record Dumping Of US Treasuries Leaves Goldman Speechless
By Tyler Durden
Global Research, July 24, 2015
Zero Hedge 24 July 2015
On Friday, alongside China’s announcement that it had bought over 600 tons of gold in “one month”, the PBOC released another very important data point: its total foreign exchange reserves, which declined by $17.3 billion to $3,694 billion.
We then put China’s change in FX reserves alongside the total Treasury holdings of China and its “anonymous” offshore Treasury dealer Euroclear (aka “Belgium”) as released by TIC, and found that the dramatic relationship which we first discovered back in May, has persisted – namely virtually the entire delta in Chinese FX reserves come via China’s US Treasury holdings. As in they are being aggressively sold, to the tune of $107 billion in Treasury sales so far in 2015.
We explained all of his on Friday in “China Dumps Record $143 Billion In US Treasurys In Three Months Via Belgium“, and frankly we have been surprised that this extremely important topic has not gotten broader attention.
Then, to our relief, first JPM noticed. This is what Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, author of Flows and Liquidity had to say on the topic of China’s dramatic reserve liquidation
Looking at China more specifically, it appears that, after adjusting for currency changes, Chinese FX reserves were depleted for a fourth straight quarter by around $50bn in Q2. The cumulative reserve depletion between Q3 2014 and Q2 2015 is $160bn after adjusting for currency changes. At the same time, a current account surplus in Q2 combined with a drawdown in reserves suggests that capital outflows from China continued for the fifth straight quarter. Assuming a current account surplus in Q2 of around $92bn, i.e. $16bn higher than in Q1 due to higher merchandise trade surplus, we estimate that around $142bn of capital left China in Q2, similar to the previous quarter.
JPM conclusion is actually quite stunning:
This brings the cumulative capital outflow over the past five quarters to $520bn. Again, we approximate capital flow from the change in FX reserves minus the current account balance for each previous quarter to arrive at this estimate (Figure 2).

Israeli Military Admits to Supporting Syrian Jihadis
By Washington's Blog
Global Research, July 24, 2015
Washington's Blog 23 July 2015
The alternative press has noted for months that Israel is supporting jihadis in Syria. But Israel has consistently denied these allegations … until now.
The Times of Israel reported 3 weeks ago:
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday that Israel has been providing aid to Syrian rebels, thus keeping the Druze in Syria out of immediate danger. Israeli officials have previously balked at confirming on the record that the country has been helping forces that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad.
***
“We’ve assisted them under two conditions,” Ya’alon said of the Israeli medical aid to the Syrian rebels, some of whom are presumably fighting with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. “That they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.”
Al Nusra is Al Qaeda, and closely affiliated with ISIS. And remember, there have NEVER been any “moderate Syrian rebels” … only Islamic Sunni jihadis.
As Vice President Joseph Biden admitted:
The fact of the matter is . . . there was no moderate middle. . . . [O]ur allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. . . . They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and . . . thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis.
(Leaked NSA documents also show that Israeli special forces assassinated a top Syrian government official.)

Pollard Goes Free Over Our Dead Bodies
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor on July 24, 2015
Since this 2010 article was written, we have learned that Pollard's handler was Netanyahu himself, passing American nuclear secrets to Russia
“….the depth of Pollard’s info that he passed on to Russia (amongst others) was as damaging as the Rosenberg’s was during that era. Devastatingly state of the art. Virtually everything that we knew/know about nukes….” (US Navy nuclear weapons expert exclusive to Veterans Today)
***
Israel is demanding the immediate release of Jonathan Pollard. Pollard, sentenced to life in prison for spying against the United States is a hero in Israel. Jonathan Pollard, an American of Jewish ancestry and Zionist extremist views who publicly acclaims that he tried to destroy America to help maintain the “racial purity of Israel.”
Pollard may have been spying for Israel but all the information he stole, a truckload of America’s most vital secrets, all went to the Soviet Union.
Why did Israel send this information to Russia, the names of all American intelligence assets behind the Iron Curtain, the exact locations of all NATO nuclear weapons facilities, missile silos and detail on how to defeat America’s defenses from nuclear attack? America doesn’t openly admit it, but this is exactly what was done, and done with one purpose, a surgical strike on America, starting and ending World War III in hours.
This is the current deal Israel is offering this time; If America releases Pollard, Israel agrees to suspend its 62 year ethnic cleansing program against Palestinian Muslims and Christians, for a short time at least.
The American public has never been told the truth about Pollard. Current figures of deaths directly attributed to Pollard’s spying are at between 110 and 120 American CIA agents and up to 1600 top American intelligence assets that were foreign nationals.

US Pledges Support to Kurdish Forces in Iraq in Fight Against ISIL
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Turkish Air Force carried out airstrikes on positions of the Kurdistan Workers Party in northern Iraq, the Turkish government said in a statement on Saturday.
The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a political group listed as a terrorist organization by Ankara, was founded at the end of the 1970's to fight for self-determination of Kurds, comprising some 25 percent of Turkey's population.
"Effective airstrikes against targets of the Kurdistan Workers Party in northern Iraq were carried out. Militants’ cantonments and armament depots were destroyed," the statement said.
The government added that Islamic State jihadist group positions in the north of Syria were attacked as well.

Scientists Discover Secret to Why We Grow Old in a Lowly Roundworm
25.07.2015
A new study, conducted by researchers from Northwestern University in Illinois, has revealed that a simple genetic "switch" may be the key to the solving the mystery of aging.
As Good as New: ‘Bio-Cement’ Will Regenerate Bones!
Caenorhabditis elegans, the roundworm, is a deceptively simple animal, and yet one of some notoriety: it was the first creature to have its genome sequenced and to have all of its neural connections mapped. By exploring this worm, Richard I. Morimoto and his fellow researchers were able to find a certain genetic marker that turns on the aging process.
According to the study, the turning point coincides with the moment the worm reaches reproductive maturity, eight hours into its lifetime.
The "master switch" instantly turns off the quality control machinery, making cells less resistant to stress and hindering the protection of vital proteins. This, in its turn, influences the duration of its life and how diseases develop.
What these findings show is that those who have linked aging to a number of different factors which should be dealt in tandem in order to control longevity were probably wrong. Quitting smoking will certainly help you improve your health, but no matter what you do, a simple flip of the switch may be in charge of your lifespan.

Clarification
The attack on Syria appears to have been commissioned by Bilderberg, the gang of psychopaths (includes Cameron) that commissioned the destruction of Libya, in collusion with the CFR, ECFR, Chatham Hse, Pentagon and NATO. Paid for with taxes from the countries run by currency criminals.

Broadly
US, UK, FR, IL, TR, NATO, NATO countries training, arming, funding, supplying, aiding, directing al Nusra, Daesh, FSA and sundry other terrorist gangs
US, UK, FR, IL, TR, Saudi, Qatar, Daesh, al Nusra (AQ), NATO, FSA attacking the Syrian gov, civilians and infrastucture
Syria, Iran, US, UK, TR, Saudi, al Nusra, NATO, FSA, Kurds attacking Daesh
Syria, Iran, attacking al Nusra
TR, Daesh attacking Kurds

al Nusra includes criminal gangs (from the CIA 'List', a directory of gangs for rent) from the ME-NA and other regions, mercs, volunteers, death row convicts, local armed forces and specials (TR, Qatar, UK, IL) and the united intelligence services.

Erdogan is, like Clinton and Obama, tied to the Muslim Brotherhood that is allegedly behind the AQ affiliate Jabat al Nusra and responsible for allowing and supporting the growth of Daesh.

Daesh (also al Nusra and FSA) includes CIA supplied mercs(apparently its majority), psychopathic extremists pretending to be Islamic, disaffected gangs from other collective nouns, volunteers and gods know who else.

The democratically elected Assad government is avoiding the currency crooks from pillaging Syrian gold although not its other treasures, the hydrocarbon mafia and the Israeli regime from pillaging Syrian oil and gas, avoiding plans for an ME and IL gas pipeline crossing its country, avoiding the break-up of the crescent of countries opposed to the terrorist and terrorist supporting apartheid and illegally nuclear armed Israeli regime. Avoiding Israeli expansion and thwarting global government proponents from balkanising the region.

In the UK as in most W. countries the electorate gets to choose from the cabal (Pilgrims, bankster families) selection of puppets and cohorts like Cameron and Osborne that not only perpetuate the transfer of public property and wealth to those that are perpetrating the currency fraud on the world but inflict us with harmful chem sprays, harmful vaccines, harmful 'cures' (e.g.radiation-chemo), harmful food and additives (GMO, pesticides residue, corn syrup, aspartame, saccharine, fluoride etc).
These servants of the beast, enemies of humanity, involve national armed forces in illegal wars of aggression seen in Libya and Syria, pretending they aren't responsible by lying every time their lips move, using NATO, "on secondment" and "humanitarian bombing" as cover.

These people serving the luciferian cabal are responsible for almost all that is wrong and bad in the world and they commit their crimes with impunity because we let them.

I wonder could Corbyn be the first honest politician in history, informing the public of the criminality of the monopoly money currency system, the criminality of the participants in the crooked electoral system, the criminality of the monarchy, of corporation wars using public finances, secret services and armed forces, the damage the Bilderberg created European Commission, Council, euro and common purpose have done and are doing to the UK aided by traitors like the monarchy and all politicians and civil servants.

The Pilgrims, headed by the Queen created Bilderberg.

My comment
Considering the intense geo-engineering by private companies and military and weather warfare trials by the military = chem trails and HAARP, Gates and others' crackpot schemes continuing in the US, is it any surprise that the weather has been severely influenced in N. America and beyond? Brilliant sunshine and damn cold in the UK just now, another casualty of GE chem trails and military experiments.

Many HAARP experiments have been carried out over the arctic. Some believe that HAARP has damaged the ionosphere, maybe the ozone layer too, to such an extent that because of the resulting increase in UV penetration the perps cannot stop spraying the skies with harmful chems to cause a haze.
(HAARP has been privatised. Have the criminals done a runner?)
A less harmful solution would be to pump oxygen or ozone into the ozone layer. But that fails to serve the population reduction agenda.
The weather mods are temporary, not influencing even short term climate, at best damming the consequences of cooling that should already be increasing.

Get the psychopathic servants of the monarchies, corporations and the Israeli regime (Rothschild) out of government (preferably into jail, a secure mental institution or something more permanent) and either find honest Joes and Johannas to do the job or else dispense with a permanent central government.
After Gaddafi was assassinated there are few if any administrations left that benefit/serve humanity or even their national population. Don't look to the UN, it is a luciferian organisation that serves the global government proponents whose weapons against humanity are fiat (unsupported) currency, land, sea and atmosphere toxification, dangerous vaccines, imposed chem contraceptives, drug, ELF and microwave mind control, brainwashing by media (news, films, series, ads) and war.

Wake up.

Saudi Choppers Drop Barrel Bombs on Opposition in Najran
EXCLUSIVE: Saudi Choppers Drop Barrel Bombs on Opposition in Najran
[Image text] Saudis’ already running out of American and Israeli cluster bombs…after dropping thousands on Yemen towns and cities…
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Saudi Army helicopters dropped several barrel bombs on dissident Najran region.
The heinous move by Riyadh came after the Saudi opposition movement, Ahrar al-Najran, established full control over Akhdoud region in the Southern parts of Najran province.
Local sources told FNA on Wednesday that army choppers have been dropping numerous barrel bombs on residential and civilian districts in the city of Akhdoud.
“The Saudi regime is looking for revenge from the innocent citizens of Najran after the recent popular uprising in there,” Saudi political activist Karim Talal told FNA.
Earlier today, Abu Masoud, a senior leader of Ahrar al-Najran, told FNA that Ahrar al-Najran fighters, backed by al-Shabab movement of Najran, regained full control of Akhdoud city.
Ahrar al-Najran declared existence in June. Tribal forces and activists in Saudi Arabia’s Najran region formed a military and political opposition movement to the Saudi regime, called “Ahrar al-Najran”, after the region declared separation from Saudi Arabia and joined Yemen in the war on Riyadh.
Activist and movement member, Abu Bakr Abi Ahmad al-Salami, told FNA that in June “all tribes of the region are members of the Ahrar al-Najran Movement”.
He said the youths and political activists in Najran have demanded the “Yemeni popular forces and revolutionary committees, brothers, and the neighboring lands to provide military training for the younger generation of this region”.
Al-Salami underlined the movement tough stance against the al-Saud regime, saying, “Saudi Arabia wrongfully imagines that it is the only defender of Islam, but they should know that we are the defenders of Islam and the two holy mosques, and we will rush to defend the two mosques (in Mecca and Medina) if necessary.”
Al-Salami said the movement is worried about developments in Yemen, and declared that “the movement’s first battle will take place in those areas controlled by the Saudi occupation army in Southern Najran soon”.

VT: Yugoslav Wars: Story of Serbian Genocide Still Remains Untold
By GPD on July 23, 2015
Ekaterina Blinova
The Russo-Western conflict over Ukraine is a continuation of the geopolitical war against Russia unleashed by the US in Yugoslavia in the 1990s, Dragana Trifkovic told Sputnik, nailing the West for the deliberate demonization of the two nations.
The British-drafted anti-Serbian resolution over the so-called “Srebrenica massacre” discussed in the UN Security Council earlier this month is part of a Western geopolitical game aimed against Serbia and Russia which started with the Yugoslav War of 1991-2001, according to Dragana Trifkovic, an author, expert in geopolitics and the Director General of the Center for Geostrategic Studies, in Belgrade, Serbia.
“This war represented the first phase of surrounding Russia, and the elimination of its allies, as well as the testing ground for trying out new methods for special war, which are afterwards used in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and now in Ukraine,” Dragana Trifkovic told Sputnik.
According to the expert, another fact that should be known about Srebrenica is that most of the victims were killed during the battle for Srebrenica and belonged to the 28th Division of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Army.
“The Commander of that Division was infamous Naser Oric who was acquitted of responsibility for committed crimes by the Hague tribunal,” Dragana Trifkovic remarked.
“And the third important fact which West and British resolution does not mention, is that from 1992 to 1995 in Srebrenica and surrounding villages around 3,500 Serbs were killed — mostly peaceful civilians, including women, children and elderly people,” the expert underscored.
Srebrenica Victims Numbers Exaggerated
Numbers of Srebrenica victims has been dramatically exaggerated by the West, the expert pointed out. And that is not all.

Yemen retaliatory attack big embarrassment for Al Saud
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on July 22, 2015
If the Saudis capture Aden and reinstall a government there, it can be a base for a second front
by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor with Press TV, Tehran
Press TV has conducted an interview with Jim W. Dean, managing editor of the Veterans Today from Atlanta, to ask for his insight on the impact of Yemeni fighters’ attacks on soil of Saudi Arabia.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: To what extent have the Ansarullah fighters been successful and effective in retaliating against the Saudis?
Dean: Well, they’ve done a very good job, actually surprised a lot of people, and being able to project force into Saudi Arabia, which people really did not expect.
They thought that they would be conserving their resources to fight the Saudi forces and that they [would be opposing] them inside the country, because once you get doing cross-border operation, you start spreading your troops out, and you become more vulnerable to attacks from different areas, which is what is going on now in Aden, which it appears that the Saudi forces have got a foothold there.
And their objective seems to be they’re trying to take over Aden so that…they can reinstitute some parts of the old government there and be in a stronger negotiating position. But the outrageous thing about this is that they’re doing this during the UN ceasefire. And nobody really said much about that.
Press TV: Can the Houthis take the fight to Saudi soil and will Saudi Arabia be able to repel such attacks
Dean: The attacks on Saudi Arabia are just for show, basically do embarrass the government that their troops cannot fight and [their whole] troops had been running away. And this has been a big embarrassment to show Saudi Arabia despite all its tens of billions of dollars weapons, ‘you have to have people that can fight them.’
And even the Yemenis have been fighting for long time, but there’s a risk here that now with the southern port of Aden possibly might be retaken, that will put a lot of wind in the sails of Saudi Arabia. They could care less whether they lose a few bases along the border. There’s really nothing strategic for the Houthis to gain other than embarrassing Saudi Arabia.
But if they can recapture Aden, that’s going to be a big blow to the Houthis and they now have to concentrate their forces and when they do that they’re more subject to air attacks. So, what I see developing here, Saudi Arabia is being working on combined operations, counter attacks, and that will be difficult for the Houthis to deal with.

Erdogan Accused of Terror False Flag by HDP
By GPD on July 22, 2015
Turkish HDP holds Erdogan’s regime responsible for terrorist explosion in Suruc
[Image text] Turkey’s claim that is it opposing ISIS, based on the Suruc attack, has to be a joke. There is no doubt whatsoever, that this is Erdogan dealing with political opponents with false flag terror bombings, something we expect to see many more of in Turkey as days to come, until someone stops Erdogan.
Ankara, SANA – Figen Yuksekdag, Co-leader of the Turkish Peoples’ Democratic Party “HDP” held the NATO backed regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan responsible for the terrorist explosion that rocked the southern Turkish town of Suruc.
On Monday, at least 3o people were killed in a terrorist bombing during a meeting of young activists to discuss the reconstruction of the Syrian city of Ain Al-Arab and to express solidarity with it in the face of the Takfiri terrorism.
In statement following a tour in the bombing site, Yuksekdag said “Nobody can move between Sanliurfa and Suruc without Turkish intelligence and security apparatus knowledge, therefore Erdogan’s regime is responsible for this terrorist explosion.”

Turkey's electoral system skewed. In 2002, AKP got 2/3 deputies with 1/3 vote. Some parties failed (unusually high) 10% electoral threshold.
Turkey's electoral system is legacy of 1980 coup. It's meant to keep out challengers, new parties, minorities and reward few big parties.
In 13 years in power, AKP chose not to touch the 10 percent electoral threshold from coup era. It always benefited. Until... last election.
Last election, HDP managed to pass this 10% threshold, and gain a few percent votes from ex-AKP voters. Result=no single-party AKP gov't.
Now, as Turkey struggles to form a government & potential another election around the corner, high-level AKP folks calling to shut down HDP.

VT: British Fascism: Why British Nobility Hailed Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany
By GPD on July 23, 2015
Ekaterina Blinova for SputnikNews
A 17-second video depicting young Queen Elizabeth II performing a Nazi salute has prompted a fierce debate among experts and the public. What other disturbing facts have the Allies swept under the carpet?
While discussing the victory in the Second World War, historians usually praise Russia, Great Britain and the United States for their joint contribution in defeating Nazism — the true plague of the 20th century.
Surprisingly, the West now turns a blind eye to the emergence of neo-Nazi movements in Eastern Europe and in the Baltics, demonizing the USSR and today’s Russia instead. Has this historical lesson already been forgotten?
How Anglo-Saxon Financial Elite Facilitated Third Reich’s Rise
Famine in Mysore
Unspoken Story of Indian Holocaust: UK Remains Silent About Its Atrocities
The West is still in denial of the fact that the Anglo-Saxon political and financial establishment played a significant role in the Third Reich’s rise. Furthermore, some representatives of the British nobility even went so far as to openly support Adolf Hitler, kicking off their own fascist organizations and conspiring with Nazi Germany.Paradoxically, back in the early 1930s neither London, nor Washington considered Hitler’s Third Reich as a “threat,” facilitating the “Nazi economic miracle” and the industrial growth of the would-be military monster.
After Adolf Hitler and his Brownshirts seized power in Germany in 1933, Britain started “grooming” Nazi Germany “as best as she could,” American economist Guido Giacomo Preparata narrated in his book “Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America Made the Third Reich.”
In July 1934 Britain and Germany concluded the Anglo-German Transfer Agreement — one of the “pillars of British policy towards the Third Reich.” By the end of the decade Nazi Germany had become Britain’s “principal trading client.”
Furthermore, in December 1934, Montagu Norman, the Governor of the Bank of England from 1920 to 1944, “advanced the Nazis a loan of about $4 million in order to ‘facilitate the mobilization of German commercial credits': that is new money to pay old debts — or better said, a gift,” Preparata elaborated.
And that is not all. Both Britain and the US made a number of highly lucrative arms deals with Nazi Germany. For instance, Vickers-Armstrong, the prestigious British arms manufacturer, provided Berlin with heavy weaponry.
When asked in 1934 to give assurance that the company was not used for secret rearmament of Germany, Chairman of Vickers Herbert Lawrence answered evasively: “I cannot give you assurance in definite terms, but I can tell you that nothing is done without the complete sanction and approval of our own government.”
Meanwhile, the US was selling Nazi Germany most advanced airplane engines, while American companies Pratt & Whitney, Douglas, Bendix Aviation, to name but a few, provided German companies — BMW, Siemens and others — with patents and military secrets, Preparata pointed out.
According to the author, for the British and American establishement Nazism was seen as a convenient way of destabilizing Europe and turning it into a big unified market place, as well as a driving force that could dismantle the USSR.
Sir Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists
Remarkably, Great Britain also boasted its own influential fascist party.

List of House Reps (mostly Republicans) for Banning Honest GMO Food Labels
By Gordon Duff July 25, 2015
This is the “monster list,” those who have been bought by Monsanto and are fighting hard to make sure you will never know what you eat. Labeling food properly has always been something the GOP has fought against. In Michigan, back in the 70s, the GOP made “Michigan standard” sausage illegal. This meant that a hot dog went from 100% skeletal muscle to snouts, floor sweepings, earthworms, fillers and gelatin.
Today “GOP hamburger” is a red slurry that would have been prohibited from being put in dry dog food 50 years ago. You and your kids eat it every day, 25% of the meat you get at your supermarket and a much higher percentage of what you get if you eat in chain restaurants or buy “frozen patties.”
Think both parties are the same? Do a head count:

Turkey, US agree on no-fly zone over Syria: Turkish Hurriyet daily
Jul 24, 2015 PressTV
An agreement reached between Turkey and the United States on what they call cooperation against the ISIL terrorist group also includes establishing a no-fly zone over the Arab country, a Turkish newspaper says.
Turkey’s leaders had on Friday confirmed that a deal had been reached, and said it would enable the US to use the key Turkish Incirlik Air Base, which is located near Syria.
However, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet said that the agreement also outlines a 90-kilometer (56 mile) no-fly zone between the Syrian towns of Marea and Jarabulus.
An aerial view of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey (file photo)
Hurriyet said the no-fly zone would shield a planned safe zone on the ground that would extend up to 50 kilometers (31 miles) inside Syria.
“US planes equipped with bombs and missiles will be able to use the Incirlik Air Base,” and Turkey could back up their air raids with artillery, the newspaper wrote.
Syrian warplanes would be targeted should they enter the no-fly zone, according to the report.
Turkey itself carried out aerial attacks using three F-16 fighter jets against what were said to be ISIL targets inside Syria.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the Turkish warplanes were “100 percent” successful in their strikes inside Syria, noting, “The operation against IS (ISIL) reached its target and will not stop.”
The pledge to confront ISIL Takfiris comes despite Turkey’s longtime support for the militancy against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with reports showing that Ankara actively trains and arms the Takfiri extremists operating in Syria, and also facilitates the safe passage of foreign terrorists into the Arab country.
Ankara and Washington previously signed a deal to train and arm the anti-Damascus Takfiris. The program, which officially started earlier this month, is aimed at training over 15,000 militants in three years. Over 120 US soldiers are reportedly in Turkey to train the militants.

The democratically elected Syrian gov should impose its own NFZ, it has enough advanced missiles and radar to enforce it. The Syrians and Lebanese need no help extinguishing the terrorists on the US-EU payroll. It needs the NATO axis of evil to stop providing terrorists and mercenaries and to stop supporting them. The world understands that a large majority of Syrians want the present Syrian gov and that to call the insurgency a civil war is an outright lie. It is the currency crooks, monarchies and corporations' controlled W. regimes, Saudi, Qatar, IL and NATO that are at war against Syia. It has withstood the horrendous and sickening illegal onslaught remarkably.

As one begins reading Technocracy Rising, the key programs, organizations, and global conglomerates outlined in the book will be quite familiar; with many readers knowing most of the names of the key participants in the global push for a world run by a “Technocratic Elite.” Surprisingly, these people do things right out in the open. Technocracy is not new, as the utopian dream of a world run by men of science has been “alive and well” for many decades. As you can probably surmise from the title of Pat Wood’s book, technology plays a vital role in the Technocrats’ evil plan of world domination. It is not a secret that we now live in a society of constant surveillance, with most of us voluntarily carrying around a personal tracking device known as a smartphone.

Gunmen injure 2 officers in Istanbul
Jul 25, 2015
Unknown gunmen have opened fire in the Okmeydani district of Istanbul in Turkey, wounding two officers, Turkish media report.
The officers were attacked near the Cemal Kamacı Sports Complex in the largest city of Turkey on Saturday evening, Turkish newspaper Today's Zaman reported.
The injured officers were rushed to a nearby hospital to receive treatment following the assault.
Witnesses said that the assailants fled the scene of the shooting attack.
Security forces have launched a massive manhunt to arrest the attackers.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack. Members of the security forces have been attacked in various parts of Turkey over the past few days.
The latest assault comes days after two Turkish police officers were found shot dead in the country’s southeastern province of Sanliurfa near the border with conflict-ridden Syria on Wednesday.
Turkey’s Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) later claimed responsibility for the killing, saying the officers were cooperating with the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group.

Varoufakis reveals cloak and dagger 'Plan B' for Greece, awaits treason charges
Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis claims he was authorised by Alexis Tsipras to look into a parallel payment system
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard 26 Jul 2015
A secret cell at the Greek finance ministry hacked into the government computers and drew up elaborate plans for a system of parallel payments that could be switched from euros to the drachma at the "flick of a button" .
The revelations have caused a political storm in Greece and confirm just how close the country came to drastic measures before premier Alexis Tsipras gave in to demands from Europe's creditor powers, acknowledging that his own cabinet would not support such a dangerous confrontation.
Yanis Varoufakis, the former finance minister, told a group of investors in London that a five-man team under his control had been working for months on a contingency plan to create euro liquidity if the European Central Bank cut off emergency funding to the Greek financial system, as it in fact did after talks broke down and Syriza called a referendum.
The transcripts were leaked to the Greek newspaper Kathimerini. The telephone call took place a week after he stepped down as finance minister.
"The prime minister, before we won the election in January, had given me the green light to come up with a Plan B. And I assembled a very able team, a small team as it had to be because that had to be kept completely under wraps for obvious reasons," he said.
Mr Varoufakis recruited a technology specialist from Columbia University to help handle the logistics. Faced with a wall of obstacles, the expert broke into the software systems of the tax office - then under the control of the EU-IMF 'Troika' - in order to obtain the reserve accounts and file numbers of every taxpayer. "We decided to hack into my ministry’s own software programme," he said.
The revelations were made to a group of sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, and life insurers - many from Asia - hosted as part of a "Greek day" on July 16 by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF).
Mr Varoufakis told the Telegraph that the quotes were accurate but some reports in the Greek press had been twisted, making it look as if he had been plotting a return to the drachma from the start.
"The context of all this is that they want to present me as a rogue finance minister, and have me indicted for treason. It is all part of an attempt to annul the first five months of this government and put it in the dustbin of history," he said.
"It totally distorts my purpose for wanting parallel liquidity. I have always been completely against dismantling the euro because we never know what dark forces that might unleash in Europe," he said.
The goal of the computer hacking was to enable the finance ministry to make digital transfers at "the touch of a button". The payments would be 'IOUs' based on an experiment by California after the Lehman crisis.
