Syria bombs France, world press silent  
Oops. My bad.
France Bombs Syria
Global Research, September 28, 2015 By Stephen Lendman
France is part of the problem, not the solution, in Syria. It supported Obama’s war from inception. It partners in all US imperial wars, a key member of NATO’s killing machine, smashing one nation after another.
On Saturday, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius lied, blaming Assad for four-and-a-half years of war, ignoring Obama’s full responsibility and French complicity, backing his aggression on another independent country, using ISIS and other takfiri terrorists to do his dirty work.
There has been a lot of comment in the last few days on the role of Assad and whether he can or should be a stabilizing element in Syria,” said Fabius. He lied calling him “the main person guilty of the current chaos. If we were to say to the Syrians that the future of Syria lies in Assad, then we’ll expose ourselves to failure.”
“We have to redouble our efforts” to oust him – ignoring his overwhelming popularity along with core international law, prohibiting interfering in the internal affairs of other nations for any reason, except in self-defense if attacked.
Syria doesn’t threaten its neighbors. Assad wants peace, not war. He responsibly defends his country and people against foreign invaders – disgracefully bashed for doing his job.
On Sunday, France partnered with America, Britain, Canada, and Australia in bombing Syria. The objective: support ISIS terrorists. Ravage the country into submission.
Continued war assures more harm to long-suffering civilians than already, exacerbating, not diminishing human floods fleeing for safe havens.
A Hollande government statement lied, saying: “Our country thus confirms its resolute commitment to fight against the terrorist threat represented by Daesh (the Islamic State). We will strike each time that our national security is at stake.”
France is using the refugee crisis as an excuse to continue terrorizing Syrians, forcing more to flee for their lives, using the tired old national security canard, a phony reason to pursue its regional imperial interests along with America.
The way to insure regional and European security is by ending wars, not continuing them endlessly, creating an endless cycle of violence, chaos and instability, the opposite of good policy – except for hegemons wanting things their own way unchallenged, no matter the cost in human lives and suffering.
Putin’s agenda is polar opposite, criticizing Western “double standards and selfishness,” urging world leaders to unite against ISIS, go all-out to eliminate its scourge.
Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria established Baghdad-based a joint information center. According to an unnamed military-diplomatic source, the initiative’s “main goal…will be gathering, processing and analyzing current information about the situation in the Middle East – primarily for fighting IS.”
An official from each country will head the center on a three-month rotating basis. Its objective is coordinating plans to defeat IS, waging legitimate war on terrorism, polar opposite US policy.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said “Moscow is acting within the framework of international law, respecting the sovereignty of our county…
We do not hide anything under the table. We regard Russia as our friend and strategic ally which is honest in its actions.
Its commitment to defeating IS and restoring regional peace and stability runs counter to Washington’s imperial agenda.
Expect no change in its permanent war policy. Ignore meaningless rhetoric claiming a commitment for regional peace.

Don't forget, the Syrian gov returned a French hit team to the French regime after it failed to murder Assad.

Switzerland watchdog Weko probes banks
Switzerland watchdog Weko probes banks including HSBC, UBS, Deutsche Bank and Barclays over metals market manipulation
City AM 28 September 2015 by Jessica Morris
Switzerland's competition watchdog, Weko, has said it is investigating several big banks over the possible manipulation of the precious metals market.
The investigation, which comes after a preliminary probe, will look at possible collusion of bid/ask spreads in the metals market by UBS, Julius Baer, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Mitsui.
"[We have] indications that possible prohibited competitive agreements in the trading of precious metals were agreed among the banks mentioned," Weko said in a statement.
A spokesman added that the probe was likely to be finished by either next year or 2017, and said the banks were suspected of violating Swiss corporate rules.
Some of these banks have already been made to pay out large fines by regulators over their alleged role in the Libor and forex rigging scandals.
The crimes won't stop until the means to commit fraud (fiat currency, bent politicians) and the perps are separated by steel bars.

James Lee’s Testimony @the EPA in Washington D.C.
Truth Denied August 27, 2015
Washington D.C. 8-11-2015
“Why is the EPA claiming that six greenhouse gases emitted from jet planes are a “threat to human health” under the Clean Air Act [1] while doing nothing to address ongoing lawsuits over leaded aviation gasoline [2] or the real health concerns of stakeholders worldwide: cancer-causing, heavy metals in fuels and their additives, [2][3][4][5][6] and aviation-induced cloudiness (AIC)?
You (The EPA) claim the authority to regulate aviation emissions under the Clean Air Act 231(a)(2)(A), a law that should protect us from the aforementioned poisonous pollution. However, the definition of “pollution” is being perverted to mean “climate change gases” in what can only be called a violation of the spirit of the law. Quote:
“air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.” [7]
As you can see by the wording in the Clean Air Act, lead, barium, aluminum, and trade-secret, toxic chemicals clearly present a greater danger to public health than greenhouse gases, no matter how much climate science you accumulate. Furthermore, Material Safety Data Sheets of aviation fuel and their additives almost always contain the same warning: “DO NOT DUMP IN WATER.” Yet raw fuel-dumping [8][9] or burning these dangerous chemicals and then dumping them in water is somehow safe? Finally, despite great efforts to find bio-accumulation or bio-magnification studies on precipitated aviation pollutants, none seem to exist.
“The EPA and Obama administration are ignoring the global outrage over the most visible climate change concern from airplanes: CLOUD CREATION.”
Do a search for the word “chemtrails” and you will see millions of concerned citizens who “Look Up” and wonder “What in the World Are They Spraying?” [10] Despite what you may think of the myriad of maladies attributed to these clouds, the global outrage is nonetheless clear. They are right to be worried and we should all be concerned.
The EPA’s claim that CO2 is a greater threat to human health than contrails and aviation induced cloudiness is based on incomplete IPCC data that downplays the effects of contrails on our climate. The IPCC’s 4th assessment of contrail radiative forcing only accounted for “linear contrails,” meaning that any contrail that spreads out and turns into cirrus clouds was not accounted for.
How significant is the heat-trapping contrail conundrum? Quote:
“Contrails formed by aircraft can evolve into cirrus clouds indistinguishable from those formed naturally. These ‘spreading contrails’ may be causing more climate warming today than all the carbon dioxide emitted by aircraft since the start of aviation.” [11]
Another researcher stated:
“A single aircraft operating in conditions favorable for persistent contrail formation appears to exert a contrail-induced radiative forcing some 5000 times greater than recent estimates of the average persistent contrail radiative forcing from the entire civil aviation fleet.” [12]
Although this research has now been incorporated into IPCC computer models and revised down, in my opinion, these claims highlight gaping holes in climate science.
2013 “Aerosol-cloud interactions are one of the main uncertainties in climate research.” [13]
Scientific understanding of how contrails transition to cirrus clouds is severely lacking but rapidly evolving with the latest research showing that cirrus clouds are filled with metal aerosols from human sources.
The big one that we’ve found is lead. … comes from things like tetraethtyl lead in fuels … still used in some light aviation. [2] So that’s probably the biggest metal that we find, or the most frequent metal that we find. But we find a whole host of different metals, actually. [14][15]
Apparently, small amounts of metal particles have major effects on cirrus clouds:

Re: GR
Climate Contrarian Distortions of Reality

"Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this presentation is the degree of misinformation and distortion of reality associated with it. Any climate scientist can immediately tell you that the IPCC projected approximately 0.2°C global surface warming over the first decade of the century - certainly nowhere near 1°C. Yet nobody at Easterbrook's presentation spoke up to correct the glaring mistake, which was central to his entire talk. There were few climate scientists present at the Heartland conference, but the fact that nobody caught or corrected Easterbrook's error speaks volumes about the lack of climate expertise and/or lack of interest in getting the facts right amongst the conference attendees".

NEO – Great Britain is a Centre of Money Laundering
VT By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on September 26, 2015
No one ever uses the term "criminal real estate boom" but that is what it is
[Ed. note then]
by Vladimir Platov, with New Eastern Outlook September 22, 2015 –
As it appears from the report recently published by the Bank of England, half of British banknotes are used for money laundering by criminal structures, or circulate abroad.
The British shadow economy covers, primarily, criminal activity which in addition to drug trafficking and prostitution, includes considerable monetary payments for such goods and services as, for example, construction works, which allows avoiding taxes.
According to the British publication’s estimates, the shadow economy makes up about 10% of the GDP of Great Britain. The fact that London is the world capital of money laundering has already been mentioned in the British mass media.
In particular, The Independent told its readers that billions of Pounds Sterling are laundered by criminals and foreign officials who buy expensive London real estate through offshore shell companies. Out of 36,342 private properties in London only recently bought through the shell companies from offshore zones, a huge number of the real estate was bought anonymously in order to hide stolen money.
According to London Police data, 75% of transactions on property are carried out through illicit companies by those persons, against whom criminal cases on charges of corruption were initiated. According to the information of the British Office of the Anti-Corruption Organization Transparency International, the flow of the “dirty money” led to an increase in average real estate prices in London and in its outskirts, thus an entire “world of expensive apartments and houses” that are inaccessible to ordinary people appeared.
Foreign criminals laundering billions of Pounds Sterling through the purchase of elite real estate in London and seeking to hide capital in the United Kingdom, actively participate in criminal business in Great Britain. Hence, during only the three summer months, according to The Times, the UK tax office received 150 million Pounds Sterling (233 million Dollars) from the purchase of such real estate by companies, trusts and investment funds.
According to information from Transparency International, each tenth household in London belongs to foreign offshore companies, many of which are used for money laundering.

TRUTH JIHAD: Attorney John Remington Graham files motion: Free Dzhokhar Tsarnaev!
By Kevin Barrett on September 28, 2015
Innocent young man crucified in grotesque miscarriage of justice
First hour: John Remington Graham is an attorney with decades of experience in the fields of constitutional, environmental, and criminal litigation. He has recently emerged as one of our greatest voices of truth and justice by:
* Filing a brief on behalf of Maret Tsarnaeva, aunt of the falsely accused Boston bombing patsies, pointing out that the FBI’s own evidence conclusively establishes Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s innocence;
* Petitioning the office of Cyrus R. Vance, District Attorney for New York County, “a formal offer of proof…based on the evidence — forensic evidence that overwhelmingly and irrefutably shows, by itemization of the key facts and by supplemental video of important witnesses, that the three skyscrapers at the World Trade Center were destroyed on 9/11 as a result of professionally engineered controlled demolition, not by office fires and/or aircraft collision.”
Bio: “John Remington Graham has participated in major cases raising difficult questions of constitutional law, appearing before courts in sixteen jurisdictions within the United States. Additionally, in 1998 he was the advisor on British constitutional law and history for the amicus curiae for Quebec in the Canadian Supreme Court, a position that afforded him the opportunity of shaping Quebec’s argument in its case for peaceable secession. Graham received both a bachelor of arts in philosophy and a law degree from the University of Minnesota.”
Common Cal
Second hour: Isa Hodge, the Muslim half of “a Muslim and a Catholic wake up in ‘Merica,” was supposed to join us to reflect on yesterday’s Eid holiday and the tragedy at the hajj in Mecca, among other topics.
But when Isa couldn’t make it, his Catholic co-host “Common Cal” generously offered to stand in. The ensuing interfaith dialogue roams over vast discursive territories, scattering sparkling gems of wit, irony, and outrage. It ends with Common Cal appealing to listeners to carry on the dialogue by finding someone who doesn’t look like you – maybe that foreign guy who runs the corner store – and start a conversation by asking him what he believes.

I wonder why Cameron is afraid of theories?
British PM David Cameron: “Non-Violent Extremists” Including “9/11 Truthers” and “Conspiracy Theorists” are Just as Dangerous as ISIL Terrorists
By Peter Drew, September 28, 2015
An Open Letter
This letter was first published by Global Research in September 2014, following David Cameron’s 2014 speech to the UN General Assembly
Dear Mr Cameron
I write this open letter to you in response to your recent speech [September 2014] at the United Nations calling for military intervention in Iraq and Syria over the threat of ISIL. In particular I would like to make mention of your reference to the so called threat to society of what you have termed ‘non-violent extremists’, including those who are attempting to bring forward information and evidence about 9/11 which contradicts the official version of events.
Putting aside the direct issue of ISIL for a moment, I find this position on 9/11 evidence to be quite incredible. It is a position that is either extremely ignorant, or it is a position that goes against freedom and democracy in British society to such an extent that it is scarcely believable. Huge numbers of extremely credible and professional people across the world are now bringing forward incontrovertible facts and evidence showing us that the events of 9/11 have been systematically covered up, and that the public has been deceived and manipulated on this issue at a quite incredible level. Just like the public was deceived and manipulated about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
While you are labelling these people who bring this evidence forward about 9/11 as ‘non-violent extremists’, are you aware of what is currently happening in New York City regarding 9/11?
Are you aware that more than 100,000 New York residents have just signed the petition calling for a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Centre Building 7 through the ‘High Rise Safety Initiative’?
Are you aware that through the fundraising efforts of public groups in the US, there is currently a massive digital screen in the centre of Times Square showing rolling video footage of the controlled demolition of World Trade Centre Building 7 to three million New Yorkers? This is footage of a collapse of a massive 47 story building (not hit by a plane) that most people have not even been aware of or seen before now. How can this level of information cover-up be possible in this day and age?
Are you aware that many members of US Congress are now demanding that President Obama release the 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 Commission Report because there is information in those pages that will shock the nation, according to the two members of Congress who have been authorised to view the pages?
But yet you have just stated to the world that you consider members of the public to be ‘non-violent extremists’ and a part of the ISIL challenge if they merely wish that these facts, evidence, and information about 9/11 be made available to the wider public and that appropriate investigations are held.

Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals
Here is the complete list from Alinsky.
* RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
* RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

Kiev opens politically-charged trial of Russian troops
Yahoo today
Kiev (AFP) - Ukraine on Tuesday began hearing a case against two Russian soldiers it claims will prove Moscow's direct involvement the conflict in the war-torn former Soviet state.
Troops captured the two men, both of whom were wounded, in May and interrogated them, broadcasting their alleged confessions in which they said they were active members of a Russian military intelligence unit operating in Ukraine.
But Moscow claims the two -- Captain Yevgeny Yerofeyev and Sargeant Aleksander Aleksandrov -- are "volunteers": retired servicemen who joined pro-Russian militias fighting in Ukraine's separatist east since early last year.

Can the Cameron regime explain
Why is the UK regime investing 10-15 billion of the budget in the IMF, its MPs taking a pay rise yet at the same time removing 12 billion from social services?
An honest government would deprive the IMF, a private investment bank, a criminal organisation in my and many other eyes before depriving the public.


What about all these jobs disappearing? The latest estimates are that there will be a 9000 job knock-on effect from the Teeside steel plant closure.

Militants Launch Major Offensive on Syrian Forces in Golan Heights with Help of Israel
Fars News Sep 29, 2015
TEHRAN (FNA)- Informed sources said that after the Israeli army shelled the government-held areas in Golan Heights, militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Nusra Front launched a new offensive on the Syrian soldiers' positions to capture the remaining villages inside the Golan Heights.
The sources said that the FSA and Nusra militants stormed the National Defense Forces’ (NDF) positions at Tal Taranjah, Mazra’a Al-Amil, Tal Hamriyah, and Tal Al-Ahmar, resulting in a series of intense firefights that took most of the Monday morning and afternoon before they dissipated due to the coming nightfall.
The militant groups received a boost from their Israeli allies on Sunday after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) shelled the heights with several rockets.
This was not the first time that the Israeli Armed Forces have attacked the Syrian army inside the Golan Heights: in early August, the Israeli Air Force repeatedly struck the Syrian army in the towns of Hadar and Khan Al-Sheih after the Israeli forces' Spokesperson reported that a missile entered Upper Galilee from the Syrian border.
Last year, the Israeli forces struck the Syrian army at the UN Ceasefire Border-Crossing after they alleged a rocket entered Israel from Al-Quneitra; this paved the way for the al-Qaeda- affiliated al-Nusra Front to take full-control over this border-crossing.

Is NOAA Altering Weather Data Ahead of the Big UN Climate Change Meeting?
Activist Post September 22, 2015 By Melissa Dykes
It has been suggested, with evidence, that NOAA has been a little less than forthcoming with temperature data this year ahead of all these big UN meetings addressing Agenda 21 and climate change. I’m sorry, did I say “a little less than forthcoming”? If this is true, I meant to say a bunch of big fat liars.
It has been announced that more than 190 countries are set to meet in Paris in December to see about a “new global agreement on climate change aimed at reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and thus avoiding the threat of dangerous climate change” since the current “commitments” on emissions run out in five years.
In its report on this, The Guardian answers the question “Why has nobody thought of getting a global agreement on this before now?” by saying they’ve been trying to get something going in this area for 20 years now at least but only in the last two decades has “science” consistently pointed in one direction which is that greenhouse gas emissions from industry and fossil fuels are causes global temps to rise.
The science, huh? The “settled” science? The data that has “consistently pointed in one direction”?
Ignore a decades-long cooling period. Ignore Climategate — an organized climate change conspiracy and collusion in exaggerating warming data out of the Climate Research Unit at University of East Anglia — or that NOAA tried to erase the “pause” in warming in 1998 by saying it was just “improperly adjusted data”, for a moment.
Also ignore any anomalies that could be caused by clandestine solar radiation management aka geoengineering (spraying of particulates to reduce incoming sunlight) as has been advocated in UN IPCC reports.
Check this out. This is data posted on the Real Science blog from NOAA.
The first graph is what NOAA released in 2014:
The second picture, supposedly of the same data, is what NOAA released in 2015:
Notice anything… different?
NOAAAugust2014-2015It magically got hotter all of a sudden.
The same time period should have the same data reported… So how did it suddenly get hotter over the last half a century?
Looks like more “improperly adjusted data”. As Steven Goddard at Real Science noted, “Their graph looks nothing like satellite measurements of global temperature.”
Goddard concluded, “NOAA has completely erased the 30-year cooling trend, and now simply fabricate imaginary data for the southern hemisphere.”
What 30-year cooling period you may ask? The one reported on here in 1978 in The New York Times.

Pillars collapsing in not so slo-mo
Is Glencore The Next Lehman? The World’s Largest Commodities Trading Company Is Toast
Activist Post Michael Snyder September 29, 2015
Are we about to witness the most important global financial event since the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008? Glencore has been known as the largest commodities trading company on the entire planet, and at one time it was ranked as the 10th biggest company in the world. It is linked to trillions of dollars of derivatives trades globally, and if the firm were to implode it would be a financial disaster unlike anything that we have seen in Europe since the end of World War II.
Unfortunately, all signs are pointing to an inescapable death spiral for Glencore at this point. The stock price was down nearly 30 percent on Monday, and overall Glencore stock has plunged nearly 80 percent since May. There are certainly other candidates for “the next Lehman” (Petrobras and Deutsche Bank being two perfect examples), but Glencore has definitely surged to the front of the pack. Right now many analysts are openly wondering if the firm will even be able to survive to the end of next month.
