RUSSIAN FEDERATION SITREP 23 July 2015  
One-Pager on Latest Developments in Russia (RF Sitrep 2015/07/23)
Patrick Armstrong

EID AL-FITR. Interesting video that shows Russia is also a rather Muslim country. The Chief Mufti supports Putin, by the way. (For those of you who think it’s some evil scheme cooked up by Orthodoxy).

MH17. Watch this BBC interview. Shootdown by Buk “most credible scenario” but also looking at Buk fired “from another region, another place” and scenario of “an air-to-air missile.” Can only mean 2) Buk fired from the Kiev side or 3) Kiev aircraft shot it down. Somebody’s lost control of the narrative. We are told by a Ukrainian official that the report will be published 10 August but not made public. (If scenarios 2 and 3 are really being considered, why is Ukraine even part of the investigation?) Retired US int professionals again call on Washington to release what it has. Simply put, here’s all you need to know: the absence of evidence is the evidence.

UKRAINE: THE WAR. The rebels have announced a pull-back of weapons under 100mm calibre (Minsk II requires 100mm+ weapons moved out of range). Why? I think the Saker is correct: to show they are abiding by Minsk II; but it’s also a trap. OSCE observers corroborate that at least some weapons have been withdrawn and they are off to confirm full withdrawal. But they have also said – I don’t recall this before – that Kiev forces are shelling civilians: “In both cases, the SMM was able to conclude the direction of fire to have been from the area of government-controlled Pisky (11km north-west of Donetsk) and Pervomaiske (17km north-west of Donetsk).So much for the US Ambassador’s retort “How do you know? Were you personally present for this?”. Or RL’s reprinting Kiev claims that the rebels are shelling themselves.


UKRAINE: TRANSCARPATHIA. Ethnically mixed, many former owners, little enthusiasm for Kiev regime. Smuggling: tobacco and borders. Right Sector people got into a fight in Mukachevo; Poroshenko ordered the Interior Ministry to restore order (perhaps a regime split on how to handle it? Certainly no one is very popular in Ukraine today.) Right Sector ran for cover and now the place is full of Interior Ministry forces and small-scale fighting. Stay tuned. (Of course, maybe Putindunnit.)

UKRAINE: RIGHT SECTOR. A headline to remember: “Kiev Forced to Fight Its Own Fascist Militias”. After Mukachevo, Right Sector declared mobilisation, demanded resignations all round and set up blockposts here and there. There was a sizeable demonstration in Kiev on Tuesday; Yarosh demanded a referendum on confidence in the government and an end to obedience to it. Analyses of the situation from Gordon Hahn, Alexander Mercouris and Nikolai Petro. BBC actually notices. Many of us have been awaiting the next stage of the Ukrainian demolution (a new word coined by Miquel Puertas: demolition + revolution) – Nazi Spring, as it were. We are a step closer. But it’s extremely fluid: witness what Yarosh is saying now. A weak government to be sure but Right Sector may not have the street power it thinks it has.

UKRAINE: NEIGHBOURS. Very interesting article by a Polish writer who contemplates where the burning fuse is going: a Ukrainian “Banderland” is not in Poland’s interests and (so much for NATO and the EU) “if the West needs Poland, it’s only as a battlefield for a possible conflict with Russia”; maybe better if Ukraine were partitioned. Other Poles are concerned about the glorification of Bandera and the OUN; and a movie is on the way. Hungary has cleared its throat, so to speak, about Hungarians living in Transcarpathia. The violence in Transcarpathia has made neighbouring countries strengthen their borders – after all the armed Right Sector people are hiding somewhere nearby. Meanwhile, Schengen members are cutting down on issuing visas to Ukrainians. Remember “the end of history”? Neither do they.

???!!! Did Washington supply Stingers to Kiev? Anyway, the Donbass fighters now have them. This may make sense in some universe, but not the one we’re living in.

KYRGYZ REPUBLIC. Several people have suspected an American attempt to start a “colour revolution” there – to many the choice of mission head is diagnostic. In this respect the announcement of a “human rights” award to a dissident was protested by the government. When the US did nothing, the PM denounced the 1993 assistance agreement with the USA.

IRAN DEAL. We’ll see. Many in the USA want to denounce it and that may happen. In which case who will follow Washington and who won’t? It’s good (and proper) that Obama thanked Russia, but I don’t expect much. As to European missile defence being cancelled, let’s ask Putin. But undeniably a major event.

Dutch Journalist, MH17 Expert: 'UN Tribunal a Desperate Attempt to Hide Kiev's Responsibility'
Proposed tribunal would be a face saving operation to bury evidence in a giant bureaucratic enterprise
Daniele Pozzati Sat, Jul 25

The proposed UN-backed MH17 tribunal is a “desperate attempt to hide Kiev’s responsibility”, Dutch journalist and blogger Joost Niemoller argues in his post “How Chess Player Putin Wins the MH17 Game”.
Niemoller is no layman. In October 2014 he published a book on the MH17 disaster whose title De Doofpotdeal (“The Cover Up Deal”) summarizes its key argument. The inside flap explains what the author means:
“The Netherlands took charge of the investigation into the cause of the disaster, but agreed to grant a covert deal to Kiev.
It thus became a pawn in an international political chess game. Unvarnished Cold War rhetoric is making a comeback.
Putin here is the ultimate bad guy. What he says is labeled as poisonous propaganda in the West. Meanwhile, it seems, all those concerned suffer from tunnel vision.
Can we still be assured that the investigators do their work independently and objectively?”
In his piece, Niemoller laments the shortcomings of the Dutch Safety Board, the body charged with conducting the investigations on the MH17 disaster. The ever-postponed deadline – the final report might be released at the end of the year, hence one and a half year after the crash, but that too is still uncertain – he finds perplexing:
“When the co-operating countries, the JIT (Joint Investigation Team), intend to complete their probe, is not known. Then, something gets leaked to the press: ‘At the end of this year’. With which legal framework? It is not yet known. Under which conditions? No idea. How will the co-operation between the Ukrainian, the JIT and Dutch Safety Board unfold?”
“Everything is vague and secret. That is not the way it should be for such an important study.”
Niemoller contrasts this with the approach taken by Moscow:
“Russia proposed last year to conduct an international study based on research carried out by the UN - and not by means of a secret deal of countries, where one of the possible culprits, namely Ukraine, has veto power.”

Israel Clears the Bench in Iran Fight
July 24, 2015
Exclusive: Israel – in its desperation to kill the Iran nuclear deal – is exposing its often-denied influence over the U.S. political/media process. Israeli officials are even using football analogies to rally U.S. lawmakers while emptying the bench of friendly “experts” to mount a goal-line stand, writes Robert Parry.
By Robert Parry
Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, acting like the coach of a football team, instructed congressional Republicans to “leave everything on the field” in the fight to defeat the international agreement with Iran over its nuclear energy program, a sign of how openly Israel now feels it controls the GOP.
Israel wants the Iran deal killed so it can keep open options for bombing Iran and imposing “regime change.” And, immediately after Dermer’s locker-room-style pep talk, Republican members of Congress began falling into line, lashing out at Secretary of State John Kerry and other senior officials who negotiated the agreement reached earlier this month between six world powers and Iran.
House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would “do everything possible to stop” the deal. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker told Kerry that he’d been “fleeced.” Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said the next president – presumably meaning himself if he’s successful – could overturn the deal because it’s not a binding treaty.
All this was remarkable even to The New York Times, which usually looks the other way when Israel flexes its muscles in Official Washington. A Times article by Jonathan Weisman noted the extraordinary image of the Israeli ambassador using sports analogies to rile up Republican congressmen to overturn a key foreign policy initiative of the U.S. president.
“Mr. Dermer’s plea — which is widely expected to be followed by a mail, television and radio assault in Democratic districts during the August recess — demonstrates the power that the Israeli government and supportive interest groups in Washington maintain over congressional Republicans,” Weisman wrote.
Obviously, some of this Republican opposition is driven by a deep-seated animus toward President Barack Obama, but the confidence that Dermer, a onetime aide to former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, showed in rallying Republicans to Israel’s foreign policy priority of hostility toward Iran reveals the degree to which the GOP as a party now ties its agenda in the Mideast to Israel.

Technocracy and the scientific matrix
Jon Rappoport
“The creative power of the individual is downplayed or even viewed as ‘injuring the group.’ This is no accident. The whole basis of a controlled society depends on people seeing themselves as powerless and surrendering to ‘the needs of the collective.’ This amounts to a political religion—but these days, it’s ridiculously dressed up as Science, as if collectivism were a series of formulas derived from physics and biology.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
As my readers know, I write a great about imagination, the individual, and independent thought.
Some might think these “issues” are peripheral to the elite takeover of the planet, but in fact they are central.
Let’s start here. As author Patrick Wood makes clear, technocracy is really all about establishing a scientific dictatorship. As he also points out, the dictatorship is based on false science.
—For example, the sales-pitch called manmade global warming, which is a jumble of unproven data-mush used to create, in the long run, a worldwide system of energy allotment. Patrick Wood also sees through to the fact that ultimately, every individual would be monitored for energy consumption, and strict limits would be set, in order to “save the planet” from frying. The ever-expanding Surveillance State, including the so-called smart grid, exists in order to make this energy-monitoring possible.
Technocracy is actually a mirage of science. And it begins with the false notion that the brain, an organic piece of machinery, is the mind and the only source of consciousness. As I’ve demonstrated, this “scientific” assertion is absurd. (See also this.) But it suits the goal of exercising complete control over the population:
“We must change the functions of the brain, make it ‘more peaceful’, make it into an adjunct of a super-computer which can automatically provide truthful answers to all important questions.”
Independent thought (and thus independent character) and imagination aren’t emanations from the brain. They aren’t the accidental output of sub-atomic particles whirling in space.
Independent thought and imagination are not made out of energy whose flow and ebb operate according to rigid “laws of nature.”
Independent thought and imagination are free, which is to say, non-material.
And that upsets the entire applecart of technocracy.
Their goal of scientific dictatorship stems from the belief that humans, such as they are constructed, will always opt for war and destruction. Therefore humans must be re-engineered. Of course, this belief involves a major element of sham, since modern war is looked at, from the top of the food chain, as a business and, therefore, starting and funding wars on all sides equals enormous monetary profits.
When an individual deploys his imagination widely enough, he realizes he is far more than a series of social constructs and interactions. He travels into new territory, where the future he invents and works toward is intensely liberating.
Sacrifice shot through with guilt is not an item on his agenda. If anything, he wants to raise others out of the swamp of guilt. Nor is he preoccupied with attaining and maintaining victim status.
So he is a threat to the collective and should be…altered to fit the requirements of the Brave New World.
He must be a “company man,” whose loyalty to the corporation or the government is absolute. He must exude the perfume of “share and care,” as if it comes from the depths of his soul, rather than being sprinkled to hide his true thoughts.
He must submit to all manner of alterations, to “harmonize” his brain with all other brains in the Hive.
He must affect an attitude of gladness toward the salvation of All in this synthetic world.
Mix together a few drops of New Age rainbow philosophy, a few drops of self-immolation, a few drops of infinite social tolerance, a few drops of faith in a super-computer that hooks people up to Truth, and you have it: a grinning grotesque mask of delight.
Technocrats see human beings as constructs that need to be reconfigured. As pieces on a game board whose latitude of action must be reined in and diminished.
This is not science. This is totalitarianism dressed up to look like science.

MH17 – ‘Buk plume’ burns witness – Part I

Digitally altered image posted within 3 hours after MH17 crashed.

More than a year has passed since Malaysian flight MH17 crashed, but we are still waiting for the publication of “overwhelming evidence” of Russian culpability.
The only ‘visual proof’ a Buk missile was fired from rebel controlled territory is a photo posted by an anonymous Twitter account three hours after the crash. I wrote a lot about this photo, for example here and here. There’s an ongoing debate on a Russian language forum too.

Gaddafi farce: ARD "judges" indicated as terrorists
[Software translation]
July 29, 2015
A fact check. The ARD disseminated , in Tripoli were of a "court" and "judges" were spoken sentences against former "confidant of the dictator" - among others for war crimes. The son of Muammar Gaddafi had been "sentenced" to death.
Well ARD is the ideologically independent observers regularly manipulation, media protection of perpetrators of Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and lie (yes, lie) detected. Let's look at the facts rather why exactly.
No torture in the ARD
As usual, are the ARD-Tagesschau an alibi neutrality before, in which she - in her text below - mentioned, there were a) dispute with the International Criminal Court ICC in The Hague, b) the rights of the defense had been restricted and c) individual guilt has not been established. Does not that objectively?
It is interesting when called from the vernacular now "Fairytale show" mission of the comparison of the fairy tale with the facts: what was not said and why?
One should know, of London lawyer John RWD Jones, on July 26, 2015, inter alia, stated :
"A key component of any criminal proceedings is the right to fairness. The Special Rapporteur of the UN on Torture has found that in the Libyan method of torture is applied. Al Hadba prison controlled by the militias that accept neither the right nor the government. Each sentence must be assumed that it comes about under pressure or fear and makes the judiciary Libya a farce. Every death sentence is tantamount to summary execution. "

Doogie Huckster. A Terrorism Expert’s Secret Relationship with the FBI
[Enemy regime's rigged "justice" system]
Trevor Aaronson July 27 2015
EVAN KOHLMANN IS the U.S. government’s go-to expert witness in terrorism prosecutions. Since 2004, Kohlmann has been asked to testify as an expert about terrorist organizations, radicalization and homegrown threats in more than 30 trials.
It’s well-paying work — as much as $400 per hour. In all, the U.S. government has paid Kohlmann and his company at least $1.4 million for testifying in trials around the country, assisting with FBI investigations and consulting with agencies ranging from the Defense Department to the Internal Revenue Service. He has also received another benefit, Uncle Sam’s mark of credibility, which has allowed him to work for NBC News and its cable sibling, MSNBC, for more than a decade as an on-air “terrorism analyst.”
Kohlmann’s claimed expertise is his ability to explore the dark corners of the Internet — the so-called deep web, which isn’t indexed by commercial search engines — and monitor what the Islamic State, al Qaeda and their sympathizers are saying, as well as network the relationships among these various actors. Kohlmann doesn’t speak Arabic, however, and aside from a few days each in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Dubai and Qatar, has hardly any experience in the Arab world. Kohlmann’s research is gleaned primarily from the Internet.
Indeed, Kohlmann is not a traditional expert. Much of his research is not peer-reviewed. Kohlmann’s key theory, to which he has testified several times on the witness stand, involves a series of indicators that he claims determine whether someone is likely a homegrown terrorist. Yet he has never tested the theory against a randomly selected control group to account for bias or coincidence.
For these and other reasons, Kohlmann’s critics describe him as a huckster.

‘Kalashnikovs of tomorrow’: Hawking, Musk, Wozniak warn of global AI arms race
The danger has to do with a combination of abilities and improvements the machines have been gaining over the years, including various integration, learning, processing power and a number of component tasks, as evidenced in their previous letter published by the Future of Life Institute.
The researchers acknowledge that sending robots into war could produce the positive result of reducing casualties. The flipside, they write, is that it “[lowers] the threshold for going to battle.”
The authors have no doubt that AI weaponry development by any nation will result in a “virtually inevitable global arms race” with autonomous weapons becoming “the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow.”
“Unlike nuclear weapons, they require no costly or hard-to-obtain raw materials, so they will become ubiquitous and cheap for all significant military powers to mass-produce,” they write.
Nothing will then stop all this from reaching the black market, researchers argue. “Autonomous weapons are ideal for tasks such as assassinations, destabilizing nations, subduing populations and selectively killing a particular ethnic group,” they continue.
The message is not that AI is bad in and of itself, but that there’s a danger of using it in a way that is diametrically opposed to how it should be used – which is for good, for healing and for alleviating human suffering.

Cameron ready to strike Libya despite FCO ruling out renewed campaign
27 Jul, 2015
As the Foreign and Commonwealth Office rules out renewed strikes on Libya, Prime Minister David Cameron says he is ready to pursue military action if the UK is threatened by Islamic State militants said to be established there.
Speaking at the end of a five-day official tour of South East Asia, Cameron said: “If there is a threat to Britain or to our people on our streets, and we are able to stop it by taking immediate action against that threat, as prime minister I will always want to try and take that action.
“That is the case whether that problem is emanating from Libya, from Syria or anywhere else.”
The announcement comes after Cameron ordered government departments to draw up contingency plans in the wake of the murder of 30 British holidaymakers at a resort in Sousse, Tunisia last month.
Since the 2011 war, which saw the removal of President Muammar Gaddafi, Libya has descended into chaos, with tribal and religious militias battling for control of the destabilized nation.

Ethnic minority Brits hardest hit by Tory austerity budget
Chancellor George Osborne’s latest budget could cut the incomes of 4 million people from black and ethnic minority communities, with Muslims among the most severely-affected groups, a new report has found.
The study, conducted by racial equality think tank the Runnymede Trust, was published on Monday.
It found the latest phase of Osborne’s austerity agenda leaves ethnic minority Britons 200 percent more likely to lose money than their white counterparts. It also predicts child poverty among these groups will grow as the Conservatives push ahead with further welfare cuts.

Corbyn
Left out? Plot to topple socialist candidate Corbyn if he wins Labour leadership
Jeremy Corbyn could face a coup among his own Labour Party ranks if he is elected leader, with senior figures expressing shock at the veteran left-winger’s popularity.
Shadow Cabinet members told the Telegraph on Monday that Corbyn would never be allowed to stay as leader if he wins the leadership contest for fear he will “destroy” the party.
Several Labour MPs have also called for the leadership race to be scrapped and the election system to changed citing fears the contest has been hijacked by left-wing ‘entryists’.
An anonymous senior Labour figure told the Telegraph that a coup could be launched within days of socialist Corbyn being elected leader in order to prevent an unspecified electoral “disaster.”
“If he wins, we will be in massive danger of destroying ourselves as a party. We will have to decide whether he should be removed immediately, or whether it would be better to give him a year or two of being a disaster and get rid of him by 2018,” the shadow cabinet minister said.
If Corbyn is removed immediately, Labour could have a new leader as early as the party’s annual conference in Brighton at the end of September.
A former cabinet minister under Gordon Brown called for the election to be halted citing fears the party was being “infiltrated” by left-wingers.
“I absolutely think it is a determined and deliberate attempt to infiltrate the election by powerful unions and it is a very serious threat to the democracy of the party,” the senior figure told the Telegraph.
“These are not Labour Party people. I think this is a deliberate attempt to infiltrate the party and distort the basic democracy of the Labour Party.”
Labour MPs Graham Stringer and John Mann have also called for the election race to be stopped.
Stringer blamed Labour’s internal electoral system, which he said was “deeply flawed and should be scrapped.”

Jeremy Corbyn: Real issues but can Labour deliver?
nsnbc Jul 24th, 2015
Contrary to Labour candidates Cooper, Burhan and Kendall, Jeremy Corbyn brought up real issues, including a clear position on the Israeli occupation of Palestine, opposition to spending cuts, austerity and privatization. Issues that appeal to the many new, young Labour members; but can Corbyn and most of all, can Labour or any of the established parties deliver?
The poll was, before it even began, marked by the confusion and disarray Labour experienced after the last parliamentary elections. Corbyn’s contenders were hesitant on key issues, especially key issues that appeal to the new, young generation of Labour members.
Corbyn was and is the only one within Labour’s top-leadership who is outspoken on issues like; the need to end the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine; the UK’s participation in illegal wars that created lasting chaos in Afghanistan and Iraq; the UK’s involvement in the war on Syria…
Issues that are largely omitted by the UK’s major media, but issues which a younger generation that has learned to avoid established and discredited media including the guardian by seeking out the new and independent media – online
Example? During the 2014 war on Gaza, nsnbc and other independent media experienced a several hundred percent surge in new readers. The 66-year-old fox knows how to read these trends.
Moreover, Jeremy Corbyn, a socialist at heart, has interpreted the developments in Greece, the surge of Syriza, and the massive trend against austerity in Europe, including the UK. Corbyn tells that he opposes further spending cuts, austerity and privatization.
However, Corbyn’s surge is not based on a left-right paradigm but on core issues that appeal to and are pertinent for those from the traditional left to the traditional right. No mediocre political correctness – clear and concise messages conveyed with skillful rhetoric.
Corbyn conveys difficult and controversial issues with clear conviction, elegance, intellectual coherence and not least, with modesty – a rarity among professional politicians.

Turkey's Call For "Safe Zones" In Syria Are Based On Problem Turkey Helped Create
By Brandon Turbeville
As Turkey continues to bomb inside Syria and Iraq against alleged ISIS targets and PKK Iraqi Kurds, and as the NATO Article 4 meeting looms over the Middle East, Turkey has clearly taken yet another step toward its goal of establishing a “buffer zone” and “no-fly zone” over Syria.
Turkey has called Article 4 NATO meetings twice – once in 2003 and once in 2013. In the latter incident, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United states sent two PATRIOT anti-missile batteries each as well as soldiers trained in the operation of those missiles. Turkey is now requesting help with its border security due to the crisis in Syria and one can only wonder what the response of the rest of NATO will be when the meeting concludes.
Article 4 allows any member of NATO to “request assistance” when its “territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened".
Ironically, the crisis in Syria – in particular, the issue surrounding the Turkish-Syrian border – was largely the fault of Turkey itself as it helped train and funnel terrorists from inside its borders into Syria. Thus, the crisis is entirely one of its own making.

Transhumanist Candidate Wants “Brain Implants to Manage Violent Actions of Prisoners”… And Soc
By Mac Slavo
Maybe the solution to all crime is more surveillance and direct control over the minds of all prisoners, anyone marked with violent tendencies and ultimately everyone in society.
That’s what one futurist is proposing, as he runs on a political platform based around psycho-physical state control over mind and body.
Zoltan Istvan, presidential candidate for the Transhumanist Party, thinks that prisoners would be better motivated to obey the law if the death penalty were abolished, and it be replaced by implanting a surveillance brain chip that notify the law and can even deploy a “tranquiliser triggered to block violent behavior.”
Of course, once it becomes legal to control the brains of one sector of society (convicted criminals), the rest of society may follow, each with their own rationales and justifications that make using spy chips inside the brain somehow acceptable.

Iran 2013
Rothschild control- this will blow you away
Could gaining control of the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CBI) be one of the main reasons that Iran is being targeted by Western and Israeli powers? As tensions are building up for an unthinkable war with Iran, it is worth exploring Iran’s banking system compared to its U.S., British and Israeli counterparts.
Some researchers are pointing out that Iran is one of only three countries left in the world whose central bank is not under Rothschild control. Before 9-11 there were reportedly seven: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. By 2003, however, Afghanistan and Iraq were swallowed up by the Rothschild octopus, and by 2011 Sudan and Libya were also gone. In Libya, a Rothschild bank was established in Benghazi while the country was still at war.
Islam forbids the charging of interest, a major problem for the Rothschild banking system. Until a few hundred years ago, charging interest was also forbidden in the Christian world and was even punishable by death. It was considered exploitation and enslavement.
Since the Rothschilds took over the Bank of England around 1815, they have been expanding their banking control over all the countries of the world. Their method has been to get a country’s corrupt politicians to accept massive loans, which they can never repay, and thus go into debt to the Rothschild banking powers. If a leader refuses to accept the loan, he is oftentimes either ousted or assassinated. And if that fails, invasions can follow, and a Rothschild usury-based bank is established.
The Rothschilds exert powerful influence over the world’s major news agencies. By repetition, the masses are duped into believing horror stories about evil villains. The Rothschilds control the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the IMF, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements. Also they own most of the gold in the world as well as the London Gold Exchange, which sets the price of gold every day. It is said the family owns over half the wealth of the planet—estimated by Credit Suisse to be $231 trillion—and is controlled by Evelyn Rothschild, the current head of the family.
Objective researchers contend that Iran is not being demonized because they are a nuclear threat, just as the Taliban, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Qadaffi were not a threat.
What then is the real reason? Is it the trillions to be made in oil profits, or the trillions in war profits? Is it to bankrupt the U.S. economy, or is it to start World War III? Is it to destroy Israel’s enemies, or to destroy the Iranian central bank so that no one is left to defy Rothschild’s money racket?
It might be any one of those reasons or, worse—it might be all of them.

The Socialist Myth of the Greedy Banker and the Creation of Money
Why Private Banks Cannot Create Money
Iakovos Alhadeff February 24, 2014
https://iakal.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/the-socialist-myth-of-the-greedy-banker-the-gold-standard/
For the comments.

Bear in mind the article is not written by an expert.
When a bank gives a cheque for e.g. a mortgage the cheque is issued without supporting collateral. The amount of the cheque is the amount by which the currency in circulation and in computerised accounts is increased (inflated).
If the argument that the bank cheque is a debit collateralised by the property, a credit, that is contradicted when the bank issues more cheques to multiples the value of that property. In the fist instance the bank is flying a kite, in subsequent instances the bank is still flying kites.
This is legal because owned politicians say it is.

---
The fed res is a private bank that is controlled by European and US bank families whose control of US banks that are credited with "owning" (controlling) the fed res is easily traceable through shareholdings.

Israeli drone strike kills 2 people in southwestern Syria: Al-Manar
[Killed 5]
PressTV News Videos Jul 29, 2015
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Israeli warplane struck a car on the outskirt of a village in Quneitra province. The London-based group says the attack killed five people including two members of the Lebanese movement Hezbollah. The report has not been confirmed by the resistance group. Tel Aviv has conducted a number of similar air raids over the Syrian airspace since the country plunged into conflict in 20-11. There have been several reports about Israel’s aid to the terrorists fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. The occupied side of the Golan Heights has also been an entry point for the militants into Syria.

The End of a Myth
Fort Russ July 29, 2015 By Jan Engelgard
Mysl Polska [Polish Thought] is a political weekly.
Translated from Polish by J.Hawk
We are witnessing the end of a certain very popular in Poland myth, according to which "independent" Ukraine means Russia will never again be a Great Power, and its "imperial idea" will perish. The adherents of Jerzy Giedroyc and his theory appear to sincerely believe in that myth even today.
Yes, that myth was also believed by the opponents of the Polish policy of using Ukraine against Russia. Roman Dmowski said so and was right at the time. Pilsudski played the Ukrainian card in 1920, arousing tremendous forces by uniting the Whites with the Reds who then came very close to destroying the barely independent Polish state.
And today we can say with certainty that the thesis positing Russia cannot be strong and powerful without Ukraine is a myth. Ukraine has not been "Russian" since February 2014, it is now "American." And what is happening? Has Russia lost its international importance? Has it collapsed politically and economically? No, rather the opposite--Russia, defending itself against Washington's geopolitical maneuvers, has gained new allies, new markets, and strengthened itself internally, politically, and morally. It does not need Ukraine, or rather the bankruptcy estate that remains of the Ukrainian state.
Russia quickly realized that the main goal of the Kiev coup is not overthrowing Yanukovych, that was only the first move before ending its influence over Crimea, including expelling its Black Sea Fleet from Sevastopol. Kazimierz Woycicki, a representative of the Giedroyc sect, was yelling in a radio broadcast in early 2014 that tearing Crimea from under Russia's influence would be a "geopolitical Copernican revolution". Which is why Moscow decided to act quickly, accomplishing its main goal--the painless inclusion of Crimea within its own borders. Thus America's whole sophisticated plan crashed like a house of cards. Russia does not want to annex other territories, including the Donbass--it needs the Donbass to act as a stake through Ukraine's heart, in other words, what Crimea was supposed to be except in the opposite sense.
