Cameron Establishes “Total Control” Over UK Citizens  
.

04.11.2015 Author: Martin Berger

In the 21st century the political scene of most Western countries has been heavily dominated by oligarchs and their obedient puppets who are desperate to corrode the rule of law and radically restrict the personal freedoms of local residents. This process has been significantly aggravated by the tragic events of 9/11 and the severe financial crisis that followed the collapse of Lehmann Brothers in 2008. According to one of the leading advisers to President Obama – Rahm Emanuel “it would be a shame not to take advantage of such a situation.”
The notorious Patriot Act has given the US government the right to spy on its citizens, along with extending the privileges that the FBI and other national intelligence services enjoy. It has been widely regarded as a straight-out transformation of so-called “American democracy” into a sort of authoritarian regime in blunt violation of the rights that the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution granted American citizens. Even though the Patriot Act has recently been replaced by the so-called Freedom Act, the outrageous violations of US citizens’ human rights continues.
This US example has produced an indelible impression on the politicians of nearly every other Western country that now are beginning to tighten control over their own citizens in turn.

For instance, France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls has recently presented the Council of Ministers with a draft of the French Patriotic Act. In fact he proposed to provide security services with access to previously forbidden methods – the right to spy on one’s citizens on the Internet. To pass this law that has been labeled as a “direct interference in private life” by certain political forces, the ruling party has been actively exploiting the Charlie Hebdo attack along with the recent terrorist attacks in Tunisia.
British Conservatives have approached this issue more thoroughly. In recent years they have rallied for a major push against civil right under the guise of “the growing terrorist and extremist threat.” Essentially, this may result in the UK becoming an authoritarian country.
In particular, the bill that has been brought forward by the British Interior Minister Theresa May on the fight against terrorism, according to the joint human rights committee, may seriously limit the rights of citizens along with the academic freedom of speech in the UK. Theresa May announced that a new anti-terrorism law will require the introduction of certain steps that are aimed at preventing the spread of radicalism in state institutions, such as universities, schools, public institutions, all while forcing Internet companies to get involved in monitoring the communication of the population on the Internet.
British authorities have been persistently tightening their control over the net. Back in 2012 they put forward a new law on personal data, according to which local Internet providers would have been forced to store the history of all Internet activities for 12 months, including messages sent via SMS, Facebook and Twitter. This data would be provided to local authorities at any given moment at their request. As it was stated in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph by the former head of MI5 Lord Jonathan Evans, these measures should allow the intelligence services of the Kingdom to monitor such services of Facebook, WhatsApp and Snapchat, while forcing local providers to store IP addresses of the users.
In addition, as noted by The Guardian, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has been capturing emails of journalists working for top international media companies based in Great Britain, by using numerous taps on fibre-optic cables. On top of all this, “investigative journalists” were labeled as a threat to national security, alongside terrorists or hackers. Earlier, more than 100 chief editors of the British media have signed a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, which voiced their protest against the continuous spying on journalists. In addition, the Secretary General of the National Union of Journalists Michelle Stanistreet voiced his concern about British law enforcement agencies bypassing the need for judicial review of a request to access journalistic sources, abusing the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa).
According to the former Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Sajid Javid, Theresa May’s strategy to combat extremism – is a “fundamental shift” in the ongoing struggle to monitor the activities of TV channels, which may result in all media getting heavily censored in the UK.
The laws that have already been adopted in the Kingdom, allows British police to enjoy unprecedented access to the personal data of British citizens, due to legislative loopholes in the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act that they’ve been exploiting. According to recent data, UK police officers file a request for access of personal data every two minutes, while getting permission in 93% of all cases. According to the report published by Big Brother Watch, in the period from 2012 to 2014, a total of 730,000 requests for access to personal data has been submitted in the UK by police officers. With each year the number of such applications is increasing, with last year marking an all time peak – 250,000 requests a year.
Under the guise of fighting “terrorist and extremist threats” British intelligence services try to establish control over human rights organizations and trade union protest groups. Recently the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT), which is the only tribunal in the United Kingdom that is entrusted with the duty to pass rulings on complaints against intelligence services, has recognized spying on the activities of two international human rights organization, that was carried out by GCHQ, illegal. In this regard, Erik King, deputy director of the human rights organization Privacy International, said: “”For far too long, intelligence agencies like GCHQ and NSA have acted like they are above the law. Today’s decision confirms to the public what many have said all along — over the past decade, GCHQ and the NSA have been engaged in an illegal mass surveillance sharing program that has affected millions of people around the world. We must not allow agencies to continue justifying mass surveillance programs using secret interpretations of secret laws.”Recently the newly created extremism analysis unit within the Home Office that has been charged with fighting extremism has been entrusted with blacklisting extremist individuals and organizations. However, the shadow home secretary of the opposition Labor Party,
Andy Burnham, said that the strategy proposed by Prime Minister David Cameron can lead to alienation between the Muslim community and the rest of the population, intensifying conflicts in an already riddled with troubles British society.
However, despite the steps already taken by the British special services to establish authoritarian control over the country, the head of MI5, Andrew Parker in an interview with the BBC, while referring to the ever-growing danger of extremist and terrorist attacks, demanded even greater powers to be granted. As a result, a new draft of the Trade Union Bill has become, according to the joint statement of the British branch of Amnesty International and the British Institute of Human Rights, a “major attack” on civil liberties in the UK. According to this bill, those who will want to go on strike in Britain will be obliged to identify themselves to the police, carry a letter of authorization and wear an armband that would indicate the fact that they belong to a certain protest groups. Despite the public outcry, the Cameron government has proposed to extend those conditions on every person who will be present at strikes. Mick Whelan, general secretary of the train drivers’ union stated: “It smacks of Germany in the 1930s when trade union leaders, and activists, were rounded up, and imprisoned, and, in some cases, executed. The Nazis banned unions, and strikes, in 1933, and that is what the Tories are trying to do now. They want to effectively neuter the unions – the only part of civil society now able to fight back – in Britain.”
The news that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker is trying hard to frighten UK citizens with claims that the terrorist threat is as high as it has ever been came as no surprise since the Government of the United Kingdom is planning to present the parliament with a new Investigatory Powers Bill, which grants the intelligence services and the police even greater powers and authority.
In this current situation, one could not stress enough the words of the head of the parliamentary commission on anti-terrorist legislation, David Anderson that has recently said that the proposed measures to combat terrorism involve the legitimization of state scrutiny of the political activities of large numbers of law-abiding people. . Unfortunately, his words remained unheeded both in the UK government and across British society.

Open Source: Britain's MI5 to Be Given Major New Powers to Spy Online

The UK government has proposed a new bill which gives the police and intelligence agencies special powers to get access to individuals' communications data.
07.11.2015
The British government published a draft version of its 'Investigatory Powers Bill,' on Wednesday, which gives law enforcement the power to intercept, and collect information from internet providers on individual internet users. It then imposes a gagging order to prevent anyone disclosing that the warrant even existed, Arstechnica reported on Friday.
The bill gives the UK Secretary of State the power to give any postal and telecommunications operator a "technical capability notice," on behalf of police, security and intelligence agencies and the armed forces, which requires any relevant operator to "take all the steps specified in the notice for the purpose of complying with those obligations."
After receiving the notice, the person providing the postal or telecommunications service must comply with the order, and then keep it a secret. If they don't comply, they could go to prison.
"A person to whom a relevant notice is given, or any person employed or engaged for the purposes of that person’s business, must not disclose the existence and contents of the notice to any other person," the draft bill continues.

NATOCIA and associated national security services' terror. Gladio C? D?
The phony 'war on terror' has a purpose. To impose legislation that parallels martial law as seen in the US and the Cameron regime is resorting to secrecy to get it past the public. Which zio NGO think tank came up with that law? Bilderberg's ECFR run by Rompuy seems the most likely.

When Terror Victims Become the Hunters

07.11.2015 Author: Jim Dean
“Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean, I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.” ~ Josey Wales
The worm has turned on State-sponsored terrorism. Those who planned to use large scale throwaway terrorist military formations as the regime-change tactic of this century may be watching their new toy going down in flames.
Russia’s intervention has turned the tide, and a big surprise it was for the whole world. We are all waiting to see if the flight recorders and explosives testing confirm either a bombing or catastrophic mechanical failure. If it turns out to have been a bombing, all eyes will be turned on the Israelis and US-coalition terrorist brigades, who are getting some of their own medicine, to see who among them would slaughter a plane load of vacationers to send a message to Moscow. Or it might be easier to ask “Who wouldn’t?”
The plan to use large proxy terror as a regime change tool was a carryover of the Cold War. The modern version was fleshed out by a group of depraved people, who figured out that American ground troops coming home in body bags from conflicts where there was no clear threat would trigger public opposition. The targeted regimes of today rarely pose a threat, anyway. The proof of that lies in the fact that the US threat definition has been expanded into including anyone who can defend themselves by retaliating to a preemptive attack.
If suitable threats could be manufactured, via false flag attacks or massive psychological operations, as we saw Bush and Cheney do with Iran, there still remained public resistance to the cost of modern war during big budget deficits. But if you removed a big hunk of the cost by getting rich Gulf States pay the tab, then the public would have less concern about our Founding Fathers’ warning of foreign adventures. “War on the cheap” by using military unit terrorists has now become a plague upon us.
The dead Jihadis get no life insurance, no widows’ pensions and college for the kids, and those injured badly do not add to the VA overload, nor the disability pensions pile. And for replacements, there is an endless supply of dead end, unemployed Muslim bachelors with inferiority complexes looking for an escape, not to mention the exotic allure of temporary marriages, slave women and children.
Russia and Eurasia in the Western crosshairs
The Russians certainly saw themselves in the crosshairs of this evil empire game. They had an initial taste of it with the Balkans wars, where NATO and General Wesley Clark used Ziggy Brzezinski’s strategy of Muslim insurgents as proxy troops against Russia’s old Serbian ally.
The Muslims were already taking head trophies back then, as in taking them home, but the Western press censored any mention of it. Veterans Today only learned about this in 2012, from a group of Serbian retired generals who became VT’s Balkans correspondents, and who showed us the shocking photos, and lots of them. And yes, we published them.
Next came the Chechen war, which spawned major terror attacks and set the stage for what was to come, such as live mini-nuke testings disguised as “truck bombs”, the kind where seismometers once registered a 5000-ton blast; and mass media ducked asking how a truck could carry that. We know now that all was backed by Western Intel, with Saudi Arabian funding as the beginning of using large-scale terror to destabilize even large countries.
Russia has carried the memories of the Afghanistan war for many years, and has denied the West’s and NATO’s attempts to bait it into foreign military involvements that could be used to validate bogus claims of a new imperial Russia emerging.
Putin takes the high ground

Europe: Welcome to a United Police State

08.11.2015 Author: Konrad Stachnio
The next step of the change from the current European Union to what could be called a European Police State might be the infectious diseases which are coming to us from Asia and Africa. It’s not just about long-extinct epidemics such as the plague, cholera, diphtheria, tuberculosis, smallpox, polio, hepatitis, scabies etc. It’s also about endemic and relatively new diseases, such as Ebola, SARS and MERS. Germany is dealing with this threat in the same matter-of-fact way as they do with the so-called refugee problem, by having local authorities forcing students to clean garbage and waste left behind by migrants. In this context, the threat of mass outbreaks can lead to the fact that the European Police State may soon come up with the idea that, for “our own good”, all EU members must be forcibly vaccinated – taking, for example, into consideration the fact that recently, in a refugee camp in Belgium, a person was found to be sick with tuberculosis.
Parallel societies
In addition to the emerging disease in Europe, with it also comes an increase in criminal activities by the so-called ‘immigrants’, something governments and the corporate media, of course, deliberately do not inform us about. Immigrants create their own so-called ‘parallel societies’, living their separate lives and not assimilating into the countries they find themselves in. Those ‘parallel societies’ are now an incubator for emerging and increasingly well organised criminal groups. Currently, in countries besieged by refugees, rape, sexual harassment and physical attacks on houses, robberies, burglaries, drug trafficking and street robberies are a daily occurrence. As reported by the German Bild, twelve Arab clans have control over the criminal world of Berlin. The authors say that the clans that buy and sell drugs, rob banks and break into houses. They also introduced a “parallel justice” system, resolving conflicts with the help of mediators from other crime families.
If this trend is not stopped, these so-called refugees will become one of the most organized crime groups in Europe. Firstly, because they are treated on preferential terms in relation to the indigenous inhabitants of the communities they live in. Secondly, because even after arrest they are often immediately released. Thirdly, German police is becoming less and less effective, because of the number of refugees.

EU: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

30.10.2015 Author: Konrad Stachnio
It seems that the majority of the Christian world are celebrating the Russian victory over ‘moderate rebels’ – pardon me, over US ‘assets’ – in Syria, as Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski beautifully put it. In Russia, they have even begun wearing t-shirts with pictures of the bombing of ‘assets’. Meanwhile, a kind of war on selfies taken on the battlefield between Russia and the ISIS has been launched on the Internet. In the Middle East, Russia is doing everything it can to help ‘moderate rebels’ meet their destiny and maker more quickly.
ISIS has so far excelled in public intimidation by publishing videos on the Internet, in which they usually cut off someone’s head. Now, Russians have started publishing online recordings, mostly of air raids with lots of the explosions which hit the ISIS centre. The world is beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel – at least when it comes to Christians.
Putin has no other way out, but to defend his territory against US ‘assets’ which, in the case of the fall of Syria, would strengthen the anti-Russian campaign in Chechnya and Dagestan. His successes in the Middle East also help him to win over public opinion, something evidenced in one of Jean-Claude Juncker’s most recent speeches:
“We must make some efforts to (establish) practical relations with Russia. It might be not sexy, but it has to be done. Things can’t go on like this… We cannot allow our relations with Russia to be dictated by Washington.”
In an audio message posted on YouTube, Mohammad al-Golani, the leader of the al-Nusra Front (which happens to be one of the US ‘assets’), described the Russian intervention in Syria as “a new Christian crusade from the East… The war in Syria will help the Russians forget about the horror of their war in Afghanistan.”
Even Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the father of these ‘assets’, stood up for them, threatening that if Russia will not stop wiping them out, the US will have to attack Russia. In other words, according to Dr Kevin Barrett: “It’s quite unimaginable that anyone could imagine America taking revenge on Russia for its attacks on al-Qaeda, but this is exactly what Brzezinski said,”
So who is the terrorist now, ‘asset’ or ‘moderate terrorist’? It is clear that the terrorists will not fight against each other, they will even not allow anyone else to do it. The only thing they can try to do is create another anti-terrorist ‘coalition’ against ISIS, which, just as before, will make ISIS stronger and provide them with the resources to expand areas under their control.
In just a few days of bombing, Russia managed to achieve in Syria what the so-called ‘antiterrorist coalition’ could not do in a year. The Russian raids also prevented the development of a situation similar to the one in Afghanistan, where the Americans, ‘fighting’ to eradicate the cultivation of heroin, increased drug production forty-two-fold. Are there some similarities here with the American struggle with ISIS? The US and its ‘assets’ were finally quite embarrassingly exposed.

We’re the ‘Weeds’ for Monsanto Roundup Weed Killer

06.11.2015 Author: F. William Engdahl
“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to kill you.” Such a comment might be applied to the most widely used weed-killers on Earth–Monsanto’s patented Roundup based on the systemic herbicide, Glyphosate. Earlier this year the authoritative International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World health Organisation (WHO) declared that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans. Scientific studies have confirmed it. Now a new, peer-reviewed scientific study over a two-year life span of test rats, clearly demonstrates that consumption of even tiny amounts of Roundup or other glyphosate-containing weed killers produces severe liver and kidney damage and in some cases premature death.
The well-meaning faceless bureaucrats over at the supra-national EU Commission in Brussels refuse to even seriously consider such studies and classify as “secret” a German government report from this past January because it likely would show Monsanto’s dirty paw prints. All this does is once more show the criminal conspiracy by Monsanto, the world’s leading purveyor of Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO plants to use myths, lies and any sort of corruption of science to ram their poisons down the throats of our food animals and of us human beings.
Shocking new Study
On August 25, the international scientific journal, Environmental Health, published the peer-reviewed results of a two-year study by a team led by Michael N. Antoniou of the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics, King’s College London. He conceived the study together with Prof. Gilles-Eric Seralini of the Institute of Biology, University of Caen, in France.
Under strictest conditions the different groups of rats were given micro-diluted concentrations of glyphosate and its adjuvants as found in Roundup from Monsanto. The glyphosate equivalent dose of Roundup administered in this study was half that permitted in drinking water in the European Union and Australia, and 14,000 times lower than that permitted in drinking water in the USA.

Ukraine Gas Ring: Western Oligarchs to Take Charge

27.10.2015 Author: Phil Butler
Syria is the new flashpoint in a war between the West and the East. Meanwhile, on the Ukraine front of this war guns have fallen silent. The people of the East of Ukraine (Novorossiya) are now trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. The perpetrators of that civil war now move to collect on their misdeeds. Here’s a report on the oligarchs parlaying for their position along the Ukraine gas ring, a money machine of dastardly proportion.
The civil war that ripped Ukraine apart is now over. I can tell this instantly by reading how the New York Times has begun to refashion history. The most recent articles paint a wonderfully journalistic painting of a fearful Kiev populace, shuddering and quivering just in case the rebels in the East, and their hordes of Russian regulars should try and take over all Ukraine. The other key indicator the war in Ukraine has ended is the Western banking wolves are moving in. The energy companies; Dutch Royal Shell, Avante Petrolem, ARCO, along with lesser known entities like BG Group, Naftogaz and Ukrnafta now surface in news to reveal the dirty dealing game that went on underneath all this Ukraine killing. Yes, you always knew it was about money, the instant you read Vice President Joe Biden’s son got a position in Ukraine energy, your fears the “fix” was on were verified. What you did not know, was the extent to which the people of this country are cheated, robbed, enslaved by the Petro Poroshenko’s arrayed there. But as the war draws to a close these notorious Ukraine billionaires are being supplanted. The gas ring that powers a corrupt system is being taken over.
Lords Of the Ring
It’s not that hard to understand how governmental control is leveraged to funnel money through the state bank down to the Oligarchs who own smaller banks in Ukraine. Completing this “ring” the energy companies Naftogaz and Ukrnafta are at the end of an investment and lending cycle that is completed by the “guarantee” supplied by Poroshenko’s government. The system is actually not so complicated as one might thinks. Credit from Ukraine’s state bank is extended to the smaller, oligarch controlled banking institutions. For a small margin of 1-2%, Ukraine’s richest cadre of business people gets to use essentially taxpayer money to fund their banking operations. Phase two of the process comes in the form of oligarch owned banks investing money in companies like Naftogaz and Ukrnafta at a substantially higher rate. These energy investments are then converted into government guaranteed bonds or securities. The final step in the process involves gas revenues from reserves and from Russia/Gazprom transit subsidies being paid out to the various entities.
As you can see, the circle of credit-insurance-low liability becomes a perfect money filtering machine. This is not new mind you, the system has been in place since the fall of the Soviet Union. As was the case with La Cosa Nostra, or the Sicilian mafia in US lore, the system resembles racketeering, with everybody involved taking a piece of the pie. In the case of Ukraine, the pie is in fact the hard earned livelihoods of every-single-solitary Ukrainian citizen. They are the ones “guaranteeing” the oligarchs’ investment, which is in fact no investment at all. Now for the interesting part, let me tell you about the part where Western oligarchs take over. This is where the battle for Ukraine has been settled, not at a conference in Minsk, but high atop some skyscraper owned by fabulously wealthy men.

Don't Forget
The terrorist threat and associated terrorism is a creation of the security services, notably NATO, CIA, Mossad, MI5-6, DGSE,

The “War On Terror” Is The Hoax Foundation Of The Police/Spy State
By Paul Craig Roberts
November 06, 2015 "Information Clearing House" - The “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. The American people were too trusting and too gullible and, consequently, Americans were easily betrayed by Washington and by the presstitute media.
The consequences of the deceit, gullibility, and betrayal are horrendous for Americans, for millions of peoples in the Middle East, Africa, Ukraine, and for Washington’s European vassals.
The consequences for Americans are an aborted Constitution, a police/spy state and rising resentment and hatred of America around the world.
The consequences for peoples in Somolia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, and Ukraine have been massive deaths and dislocations, infrastructure destruction, internal conflicts, birth defects, invasions, bombings, drones. Millions of peoples have been murdered by Washington’s pursuit of hegemony, and millions have been turned into refugees.
The consequences for Washington’s European vassals is that the millions of refugees from Washington’s wars are now overrunning Europe, causing social and political discord and threatening the European political parties that enabled, and participated in, Washington’s massive war crimes in eight countries.
The populations of the eight countries and Washington’s vassals are stuck with the consequences of Washington’s evil, vicious, and illegal actions. And Americans are stuck with the police/spy state and militarized police who murder three Americans each day and brutalize countless others.
The countries we have destroyed have no recourse to restitution.
Our European vassals will have to provide from their own pockets for the refugees that Washington’s wars are sending to them.
As for Americans, they seem to have settled into acquiescence to the brutal police/spy state that has crowded out freedom and democracy.
But Americans could do something about it.

Covert US program, as outlined by John McCain, much more effective than failed Pentagon approach

Image McCain with Heads of al Qaeda and ISIS
TEHRAN (FNA) – Informed military sources disclosed that the terrorist groups, specially the US backed Al-Nusra Front, has recruited hundreds of foreign militants after sustaining major defeats in the battle against the Syrian army and Hezbollah forces in Aleppo province in the last few weeks.
“The terrorist groups, Al-Nusra Front in particular, are getting ready to confront the army in Aleppo province and they have recruited 2,000 foreign terrorists for the same purpose,” an informed military source said on Sunday.
The Syrian army and popular forces have inflicted heavy losses on the Al-Nusra Front in their recent military operations. The Syrian army and Hezbollah seized back the three towns of Zarawi, Tal Mamu and Azizieh Samaan from the Takfiri militants in Aleppo province on Sunday.
Tens of the terrorists were killed in the joint operation of the Syrian soldiers and Hezbollah forces in Tal Mamu and al-Azizieh this morning.
On Sunday, the Syrian Army alongside popular forces advanced in the key battlefield of Air Force Academy (South of Kuweires Airbase) and inflicted heavy death toll on the terrorists.
Military sources said that the Air Force Academy and its nearby regions were the scenes of heavy clashes between the Takfiri terrorists and the government forces, which left dozens of the militants dead or wounded.
The ISIL military grid also suffered significant damage in this morning battle.
On Saturday, the Syrian Army, National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah fighters could eventually earn victory after several days of fierce battle in Sheikh Ahmad East of Aleppo and came still closer to the strategic Kuweires Airbase.
The Syrian army troops, the NDF fighters and the Lebanese Hezbollah forces, backed up by the Russian fighter jets, on Saturday tightened noose around the ISIL terrorists near Sheikh Ahmad and its surrounding areas to lift over a two-year-long siege of the strategic Kuweires airbase.
The latest reports from the battlefield said that the government forces are very close to seize back full control over Sheikh Ahmad after killing tens of Takfiri terrorists.
Also on Saturday, the Syrian Army, popular forces and Hezbollah fighters pushed back the militant groups from Kafr Haddad in Aleppo province and retook full control over the village and its surroundings.
The sources said that the Syrian Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo city, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion) and several Iraqi paramilitaries imposed full control over the important village of Kafr Haddad after a series of intense firefights with the militants of Harakat Ahrar al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, al-Nusra Front, and Liwaa Suqour al-Sham.
With the capture of Kafr Haddad, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance are within 25km of the important stronghold of Saraqib in the Idlib province and 30km East of the predominately Shiite towns of Fou’aa and Kafraya.
Army sources announced on Friday that the Syrian Army troops, backed up by the Russian airstrikes, have taken control of approximately 250 square kilometers of land in Aleppo.

Russian Source: Saudi Intelligence Responsible for Airline Bomb

…by Gordon Duff and Jim W. Dean, VT Editors with Nahed al Husaini in Damascus
A source with Russian intelligence just confirmed that the Russian government will not announce its preliminary findings on the A321 crash in Sinai.
However, their intelligence solidly names Saudi Arabia as responsible for the bombing which killed 244. Egyptian intelligence was fully complicit in the terror attack. The sources stated:
“Half the Egyptians work for Israel, the other half for Saudi Arabia anyway, Egypt has no security services, only paid foreign spies.”
Sources in Moscow say there no doubts whatsoever.
Would the Saudis attempt something like this in Israel’s backyard without involving them somehow? What do you think? Would they do it without the US knowing, when we have guaranteed to protect their security? Inquiring minds would like do know.
____________

Below is our second story on the Russian plane crash, complied soon after the possible bomb on board reports started coming in, and the early Egyptian reports were putting out false information, which is never done casually in an event like this. ..JD
A developing story: The morning news brought a growing consensus for a bomb having caused the plane to break up in the air. This was not based on potential evidence at the crash scene, but by elimination of the other possibilities.
Was the downing of the Russian passenger plane done to push Putin into making a mistake, perhaps scuttling the Vienna deal and the Minsk accords and, perhaps even the Iran nuclear deal as well?
If Putin reacts to this outrage, seemingly perpetrated by US allies operating under protection of NATO, what can Obama do if Putin decides to push back hard?
The choices are simple, Russia turns the other cheek, Russia hits back openly or surreptitiously or this takes the world to DEFCON 1 in a flash.
_

The only real evidence involves impossible errors, the initial story of radio calls never made, emergency landings planned for in an imaginary world, confirmed by Al Jazeera with Egyptian officials that never existed.
Then there is the video of the “ISIS shoot down,” easily debunked as a “shoot down” video but an extremely telling piece of evidence.
Team leader Jim Dean was quick to point out that the video of a plane flying up to 500 miles per hour is hard enough without timing the plane being overhead at the exact moment of a catastrophic mishap. This is where issues of “structural failure” are quickly dismissed.
Additionally, larger missiles like the BUK, which we are told that Kiev is furnishing to ISIS, leave a contrail that can be seen for hours from a hundred miles away in the clear skies of Sinai or Ukraine. There was no such contrail, no visible signs of a missile attack.

The Sinai Shootdown – It Finally Turns to Israel

By Jeff Smith on November 7, 2015
British silence on August failed shootdown places suspicion on British involvement in downing of Russian passenger jet and complicity of "another player"
… by Jeff Smith and Gordon Duff, Editors
“The British kept quiet so ‘they’ could try it again…”
____________

Today’s startling report of an August 2015 failed missile attack over Sinai, this time on a British airliner, has broken the web of lies and disinformation apart. Too many “leaks,” too many governments running to “bomb” without a shred of evidence, America’s immediate release of satellite evidence of an explosion when America has withheld all evidence in MH17, we are now operating in new territory here.
We are now in a full scale coverup, one that began with phony stories of mechanical difficulties from Al Jazeera, obscene cartoons from “Charlie” Hebdoe, and now floods of crafted disinformation that ignores increasing evidence.
As the story developed, intelligence agencies flooded VT with stories, all “exclusive,” and all pointing to Saudi Arabia and a “bomb.” Not one word from anyone pointed to Israel though their border was only 22 miles from the point of impact.
That alone is telling. Now, new evidence including evidence presented below that Britain silenced vital reports of an earlier failed shoot down of a “wrong plane,” point the finger to Tel Aviv.
Yesterday, the British admitted that one of their airliners was attacked by a missile, possibly an air to air missile fired by an F15. The attempted downing happened on August 23, 2015 and no one was told, not a word, nothing in the news though this startling announcement, reported thus far only in the Daily Mail, should have been earth shattering news.

SouthFront: Syria-Iraq Battlespace, Nov. 8, 2015
By South Front on November 8, 2015
…from SouthFront
The battle for Darayya in the Western Ghouta (collection of farms) of the Rif Dimashq province has recently intensified between the Syrian force s and the Ajnad Al-Sham and Liwaa Al-Shuhada Al-Islam terrorist groups. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its alies continue a large-scale offensive inside the city.
On Saturday afternoon, the SAA and the National Defense Forces (NDF) advanced the militants’ defenses inside the Al-Shayah District of Darayya and imposed full control over the Al-‘Arabiya Neighborhood which allows to contril the road to Al-Mo’adhimiyah in rural west Damascus. According to the field reports, the SAA also destroyed the main Ajnad Al-Sham HQ building there.
The Syrian forces restarted military operations at the Dara’a Al-Balad Quarter to reclaim the southern part of the provincial capital. Despite the pro-Syrian media statements about successes resulting in capturing several building blocks, the recent clashes have shown that the Syrian forces don’t have a momentum there. The fights are continuing.
Separately, the SAA and the NDF carried out an assault at the eastern slopes of the Al-Hiyal Mountains (Jabal Al-Hiyal). The SAA seized several ISIS points at the eastern slopes of the Al-Hiyal mountains and killed about 40 militants but it wasn’t enough to free this area. The pro-government forces have been continuing to advance east towards the city of Palmyra in the Homs province.
Three separate bomb attacks killed at least nine people in and around the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. No group or individual has taken responsibility for these attacks. However, the ISIS militants are often considered to be the main suspect in such attacks.
The Iraqi army conducted an operation against the terrorists in the area of Bu Hayat in the restive western province of Anbar on Saturday. The Iraqi forces destroyed a number of bridges constructed by the militants and killed five of them.
Local reports also said that four members of ISIS were killed in an attack on the hideout of the militants in the city of Fallujah in Anbar Province on Saturday.

Look who’s in charge of UK government cybersecurity
By Stuart Littlewood on November 7, 2015
A chilling remark from a House of Lords debate just caught my eye
"Hansard 4 Nov 2015 : Column GC355
Lord Mendelsohn: We welcome the appointment of the former British ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, who will have a key role in cybersecurity inside the Cabinet Office — a very useful and important position"
Sure enough, the UK Government’s website confirms that Gould is now Director of Cyber Security and Information Assurance at the Cabinet Office. “He and his team are focused on keeping Britain safe from cyber attack, through delivering the UK’s Cyber Security Strategy”
They must think we have very short memories. Gould was the first Jew ever to hold the post of Britain’s ambassador to Israel. He describes himself as a “passionate” Zionist and whilst in Tel Aviv was instrumental in setting up the UK-Israel Tech Hub. In the words of MATIMOP (the Israeli Industry Center for R&D), the Hub was established “to promote partnerships in technology and innovation between Israel and the UK, and is the first initiative of its kind for the British Government and for an embassy in Israel. The Hub’s creation followed an agreement between Prime Ministers David Cameron and Benjamin Netanyahu to build a UK-Israel partnership in technology”
Three years ago Cameron appointed venture capitalist Saul Klein as the UK Tech Envoy to Israel with the task of promoting the partnership, leading UK tech missions to Israel, bringing Israeli start-ups to Britain, and hosting tech events in both countries
MATIMOP quotes Britain’s National Health Service as an example of successful UK-Israel tech collaboration. The NHS “has now formed strong collaborations with Israeli life sciences companies conducting clinical trials in the UK. The cooperation was made as part of the burgeoning partnership between Israel and Britain’s life sciences industries initiated by the UK-Israel Tech Hub”
Four years ago Craig Murray, a former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, argued that British policy was being driven in an underhanded fashion by the Israel lobby. He linked Gould with the Fox-Werritty scandal and raised questions about meetings between disgraced former Defense Minister Liam Fox and Fox’s friend/adviser Adam Werritty (who was backed financially by Israel lobbyists but had no security clearance and therefore no authorized role) and Gould.
Murray wrote to Gould asking when he first met Werritty, how many times he had met him, and how many communications of every kind had passed between them. He was told these questions would be answered in Cabinet Secretary O’Donnell’s investigation. “But Gus O’Donnell’s report answered none of these questions,” wrote Murray. “It only mentioned two meetings at which Fox, Gould and Werritty were all three present…”
This prompted Murray to dig further. “There were at least six Fox-Werritty-Gould meetings, not the two given by O’Donnell…. Matthew Gould was the only British Ambassador who Fox and Werrity met together. They met him six times. Why?”
Murray, with many useful sources from his days as an ambassador, claimed to have serious evidence connecting Gould with a secret plan to attack Iran, but the Foreign Office and the Cabinet Secretary blocked questions. Murray published his story ‘Matthew Gould and the plot to attack Iran’ here
In it he pointed out that “Matthew Gould does not see his race or religion as irrelevant. He has chosen to give numerous interviews to both British and Israeli media on the subject of being a Jewish ambassador, and has been at pains to be photographed by the Israeli media participating in Jewish religious festivals. Israeli newspaper Haaretz described him as ‘Not just an ambassador who is Jewish, but a Jewish ambassador’. That rather peculiar phrase appears directly to indicate that the potential conflict of interest for a British ambassador in Israel has indeed arisen”
He went on to say that Gould stood suspected of long term participation with Fox and Werritty “in a scheme to forward war with Iran, in cooperation with Israel”. The stonewalling by O’Donnell and the FCO led Murray to conclude that “something very important is being hidden right at the heart of gov.”

Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People

Winston Churchill
Some people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world.
And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible. It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ and the gospel of Antichrist were destined to originate among the same people; and that this mystic and mysterious race had been chosen for the supreme manifestations, both of the divine and the diabolical.
The National Russian Jews, in spite of the disabilities under which they have suffered, have managed to play an honourable and successful part in the national life even of Russia. As bankers and industrialists they have strenuously promoted the development of Russia's economic resources, and they were foremost in the creation of those remarkable organisations, the Russian Co-operative Societies. In politics their support has been given, for the most part, to liberal and progressive movements, and they have been among the staunchest upholders of friendship with France and Great Britain.

November 7: The eternal values of the Revolution

08.11.2015
November 7, 1917, the Great Socialist Revolution in Russia. Medieval and feudal values were swept aside and people's power was internationalized, creating public services of excellence, making available public resources as universal property, implementing regimes of social mobility and externalizing the Revolution to the four corners of the Earth.
November 7, in the Gregorian Calendar, marks the date of the October 25 Revolution in the Julian Calendar, the Great October Socialist Revolution, which brought medieval societies into the front line of development within one generation, which created a worldwide revolution enshrining workers' rights, women's rights and human rights into Constitutional law around the world.
The eternal values of the Revolution
The Russian Revolution was an exercise in power to the people, implementing democracy, freeing serfs, creating the proletariat, freeing women and giving them the vote, taking children out of the mines, creating Trade Unions which defended workers' rights against the hegemonistic tendencies of societies controlled by Capitalists.
It was an exercise in massive programs of literacy, freeing people constrained by the imposed yoke of ignorance, being unable to read or write or communicate, it was an exercise in the creating of public services - universal healthcare, universal education, the right to a house, the right to a job, the right to social mobility, where excellence and endeavor were rewarded over family connections or the power to bribe.
It was an exercise in a universal movement of goodwill, brotherly and sisterly relations being favored over differences in race, in creed, in ethnicity, in color; it was an exercise in the implementation of social leaning programs worldwide. Whole societies and countries were freed from the yoke of imperialism, colonies were disbanded, people were educated, people were empowered, women were given universal rights, universally.
Providing universal and free public services
Public services existed for the first time in developing countries which had been the playgrounds of the rich and prosperous from the northern hemisphere, more specifically North America and Western Europe, countries which had enslaved millions of people in the Negro Holocaust, i.e. slavery. They have yet to apologize and make reparations.
The climate was one of goodwill, one of providing knowledge, discussing ideas and enshrining ideals in Constitutions. For the general goodwill of Humanity. The idea was a free education, the idea was security of the State against invasion from imperialist powers, the idea was safety on the streets, with people free to venture out at any time of day or night, free to do what they wanted, the idea was to provide free medical care, including dental care. The idea was to export these universal rights and values to all countries.

Squandering Peace Hopes in Syria

November 7, 2015
The Obama administration is so wedded to its false narrative on Syria – insisting that the only answer is for Russia to force President Assad to cede power to a largely fictional U.S.-backed “moderate” opposition – that new peace talks in Vienna are headed nowhere, writes Gareth Porter for Middle East Eye.
By Gareth Porter
I have always been enthusiastic in my support for peace negotiations, which have been neglected all too often in internal and international conflicts. But it is clear that the international conference on Syria that held its first meeting in Vienna on Oct. 30 is a sham conference that is not capable of delivering any peace negotiations, and that the Obama administration knew that perfectly well from the start.
The administration was touting the fact that Iran was invited to participate in the conference, unlike the previous United Nations-sponsored gathering on Syria in January and February 2014. That unfortunate conference had excluded Iran at the insistence of the United States and its Sunni allies, even though several states without the slightest capacity to contribute anything to a peace settlement – as well as the Vatican – were among the 40 non-Syrian invited participants.

smartknowledgeu Nov 5, 2015
Today, bankers all around the world are making it more and more difficult to withdraw more than $3000 or €3000 per day or to pay in cash for any item priced higher than these levels. Though most people are asleep and not questioning why this is, this global banker movement should be interpreted as a clear and present danger to everyone's savings. If you're still not convinced, then this video should convince you of this danger. If it doesn't, nothing will!

"Stranded" Central Bankers Have Turned The Global Financial System Into A "Doomsday Machine"

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 11/08/2015 - 09:32
The developing deflationary cycle stunting the world economy has arisen from the monumental harm that central bankers have already done, not from lack of sufficient vigor and boldness in attempting to contravene its consequences.

It's for a Good Cause! Hollywood Celebs Raise $31 Mln for IDF Soldiers
Sputnik 09.11.2015
Some of Hollywood's most famous stars have managed to raise $31 mln in donations for Israel's “lone soldiers”: those who have left their home countries to serve in Israel’s military; the fundraising event preceded a 'celebrity visit' to the US from Prime Minister Netinyahu, who hopes to secure a military aid package worth a total of $50 bln.
More than 1,200 guests showed up at the annual Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces charity event, which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on November 5 and raised a total of $31 million in just one night.

A Friend in Need: Netanyahu Seeks More Military Aid From US
The star-studded gathering focused specifically on “lone soldiers,” those who have left their home countries to serve in Israel’s military, while their families continue to reside outside Israel.
According to the website of the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces, an average of 2,800 such soldiers are serving in the army at any given time. Approximately 950 new lone soldiers join the IDF every year.
Attendees included Hollywood actors Jason Alexander, Antonio Banderas, Liev Schreiber, Jason Segel and Mark Wahlberg. Gene Simmons, the frontman of 1980‘s rock band KISS also attended. Simmons’ real name is Chaim Witz, and he was born in Israel before moving to the United States at age 8, according to the US media.

Talks on US Defense Aid to Israel Resume Despite Iran Deal Controversy
For the ninth straight year, Israeli-American media mogul Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, served as chairs of the gala.
Friends of the Israel Defense Forces was established in 1981 by a group of Holocaust survivors as a nonprofit organization; its mission was to provide and support educational, social, cultural, and recreational programs and facilities for the men and women of the Israeli armed forces, according to a statement on its website.
Thursday’s fundraiser came ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trip to the US to secure a decade-long aid package worth a total of $50 billion.
Under the current deal, which is set to expire in 2017, Israel currently receives over $3 billion worth of military aid from the US per year.

Buying Silence? US Sends More Aid to Israel as Iran Nuke Deal Deadline Nears
According to the Congressional Research Service's report "US Foreign Aid to Israel," written by Jeremy M. Sharp, Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs, in 2015 the US government also gave $619.8 million for "joint" US-Israel missile defense programs (designed to protect Israeli territory from potential outside threats), bringing total military aid to Israel to $3.7 billion per year.
"Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of US foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $124.3 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance," reads the summary of the report.

Princes of the Yen: Central Bank Truth Documentary

Nov 4, 2014 QueuePolitely
“Princes of the Yen: Central Banks and the Transformation of the Economy” reveals how Japanese society was transformed to suit the agenda and desire of powerful interest groups, and how citizens were kept entirely in the dark about this.
Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%. The film uncovers the real cause of this extraordinary period in recent Japanese history.
Making extensive use of archival footage and TV appearances of Richard Werner from the time, the viewer is guided to a new understanding of what makes the world tick. And discovers that what happened in Japan almost 25 years ago is again repeating itself in Europe. To understand how, why and by whom, watch this film.
“Princes of the Yen” is an unprecedented challenge to today’s dominant ideological belief system, and the control levers that underpin it. Piece by piece, reality is deconstructed to reveal the world as it is, not as those in power would like us to believe that it is.
“Because only power that is hidden is power that endures.”
A film by Michael Oswald

“Nuclear Deterrent used every Day”: The Naive British Soldier who thinks he’s Prime Minister

Appalling ignorance of the reality of the politics and nuclear assets
By Anthony Bellchambers
Global Research, November 09, 2015
Yesterday, Britain’s senior soldier became confused and momentarily deluded into thinking that his mouth and brain were connected. He lectured Britain, via the BBC, on how a nuclear deterrent is only of use when it succeeds in deterring – a valuable piece of advice, indeed!
“Nuclear deterrent used every day,” says UK chief of defence staff Sir Nicholas Houghton.
He claims Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s refusal to press the nuclear button if he was PM would “undermine” Britain’s “deterrent”. (BBC)
What he failed to mention, in his anxiety to become a latter-day Bomber Harris, however, was that to spend £100bn of taxpayers’ money on replacing Trident is £100bn ‘down the drain’. It would certainly not deter any rogue nuclear state which already possesses a second-strike, nuclear arsenal vastly superior to anything that Britain has, or will have for the next 20 years, in attacking us.
There is currently at least one entity – the only undeclared nuclear state on the planet – that currently meets the above criteria – the State of Israel. Why Israel? Well, unlike the United Kingdom, France and all other 26 EU member states, it refuses to become a party to the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT); it refuses to allow its massive secret underground nuclear weapons facility, at Dimona, to submit to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and it refuses to be a party to either the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) or the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC).
This automatically defines Israel as a rogue (nuclear) state outside of all international agreed conventions regarding the rules of war. Furthermore, its current prime minister is the leader of a right-wing political party, and coalition, whose direct antecedents include the terrorist bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem that killed 91 British and other civilian and military personnel in the first mass terrorist bombing anywhere in the world. That act, in pursuit of a political ideology, was carried out by the illegal Irgun Zvai Leumi paramilitary group, the forerunner of today’s IDF, which was founded by military activist Vladimir Jabotinsky, from Odessa. Jabotinsky’s personal secretary for many years was none other than Benzion Netanyahu, the father of the current Israeli Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu.
Why is this information relevant to the verbal diarrhoea of an (admittedly senior) British soldier? The answer lies in his appalling ignorance of the reality of the politics and nuclear assets of regimes that could, in an instant, become active enemies of the United Kingdom and who have, and will presumably always have, vastly superior nuclear arms.

Tony Blair Heading for Handcuffs and a War Crimes Indictment? Further Revelations – “Bombshells”. “Burning” the Evidence
By Felicity Arbuthnot
Global Research, November 08, 2015
“I think most people who have dealt with me think I am a pretty straight sort of guy, and I am.” (Tony Blair, 21st October 2011, BBC1.)
Given the ongoing revelations on the extent of Tony Blair’s duplicitous collusion in the illegal bombing and invasion of Iraq, it seems – to muddle metaphors – the “bunker busters” and Cruise missiles are finally coming home to roost.
In what has been dubbed “an apology” Blair even took to CNN in an interview with his pal Fareed Zakaria to – sort of – explain himself. It was no “apology”, but a weasel worded damage limitation exercise as more and more revelations as to disregard for law – and to hell with public opinion – surface. The fault was that “… the intelligence we received was wrong”, there were “mistakes in planning” and a failure to understand: “what would happen once you removed the regime”, said Mr. Tony. Statements entirely untrue. It is also now known he plotted with George W Bush in April 2002, a year before the onslaught, to invade, come what may.
He also found it: “hard to apologise for removing Saddam.” Sorry Mr. Blair, the all was lawless, illegitimate and criminal – and Saddam Hussein was not “removed”, he was lynched, his sons and fifteen year old grandson extra-judicially slaughtered in a hail of US bullets – the all in a country whose “sovereignty and territorial integrity” was guaranteed by the UN.
Whatever opinions of the former Iraqi government, the crimes committed by the US-UK war of aggression and aftermath, make the worst excesses of which Saddam Hussein’s Administration were accused pale by comparison.
Blair brushed off the mention of a war crimes trial and made it clear that he would trash Syria as Iraq, had he the chance. To this barrister (attorney) by training, legality is clearly inconsequential.
Now no less than the UK’s former Director of Public Prosecutions (2003-2008) Sir Ken Macdonald has weighed in against Blair. That he held the post for five years during the Blair regime (Blair resigned in 2007) makes his onslaught interesting. Ironically Macdonald has his legal practice at London’s Matrix Chambers, which he founded with Blair’s barrister wife Cherie, who also continues to practice from Matrix Chambers.
In a scathing attack, Sir Ken states (1):
“The degree of deceit involved in our decision to go to war on Iraq becomes steadily clearer. This was a foreign policy disgrace of epic proportions …” Referring to the CNN interview he witheringly dismissed Blair’s performance saying: “ … playing footsie on Sunday morning television does nothing to repair the damage.”
Moreover: “It is now very difficult to avoid the conclusion that Tony Blair engaged in an alarming subterfuge with his partner, George Bush, and went on to mislead and cajole the British people into a deadly war they had made perfectly clear they didn’t want, and on a basis that it’s increasingly hard to believe even he found truly credible.”
