Op-Edge: Assault on democracy in Brazil must not succeed
Richard Sudan
RT 20 May, 2016
The attempt to roll back the progress of the Bolivarian revolutions in Latin America is being played out in real time for all of us to see. It is a narrative which we have become all too familiar with.
The latest victim, Brazil, a relatively new democracy following years of military dictatorship supported by the US, is engulfed in a political crisis, underpinned by serious charges of corruption aimed at the government.
At the same time, it is clear, as has been the case in the past, that the influence of the CIA is playing a key role in seizing on the political turmoil to bring about a conclusion that will favor Washington, and also Brazil’s wealthy elite.
The impeachment of Dilma Rousseff is being backed and called for, by precisely the same power brokers who support a return to unconstitutional dictatorship and the rolling back of progress.  Indeed, the scrapping of the constitution would signify a move towards the very same system which once tortured dissidents like the now sidelined and democratically elected Rousseff.
What is happening in Brazil is being dubbed a ‘soft coup’, but for anyone paying attention, the sequence of events have a chilling resemblance to the coup waged against Hugo Chavez, the former Venezuelan leader, in 2002.  During the coup, which was again supported by the US and the CIA, Chavez who introduced many highly successful social reforms since 1998, saw his name dragged through the dirt by an entirely corporate controlled media whose interests were firmly aligned with the wealthy class and power elite in Venezuela.
Rousseff, like Chavez, has been a champion for Brazil’s indigenous population and those who are marginalized.  Rousseff, also like Chavez, is being mocked and patronized by the gutter press in Brazil, who behaved the same way when Lula was in office, highlighting his working class accent as if it were something to be ashamed of.
For too many among the wealthy elite and bourgeoisie in nations like Brazil, socialism is still a dirty word.  Literacy, political empowerment, health, education, and the nationalization of resources, represent social advances which are viewed as a threat to the existing social, political, and economic order, just as they are in Venezuela.  This is the real reason why Rousseff’s political opponents within and without, want to see her removed.

RT Question
Richard Sudan..."if you really defend the corrupt government of Roussef and the dictators of Venezuela...why don't you move there instead of writing this piece of junk from some comfortable apartment London...why don't you put your ass on a plane and go there live with the people that has been suffering this "assault" in their lives by these dictators?"
Dilma is not accused of corruption. Stop spreading your filthy lies. From the 367 MPs who voted for the impeachment, 315 are accused of various crimes. To know: Criminal association (Mafia), drug dealing, extortion, rape etc etc. From the new cabinet, 8 new ministers are accused on the mega inquiry Lava Jato. Michel Temer, the new NOT elected president is also acused on Lava Jato and dozens of other criminal inquires. So...on your bike and GTFOH.

- Liberdade custosa
This new goverment wants to end ambiental licenses, and you all know what it means.
Corporations will be able to destroy the enviroment and there will be nothing we can do.
And this is already enough for a coup, just this ambiental crime is enough to raise interest in those in favour of the coup.
And it's just one of the crimes they intent to allow, there's also police violence to be allowed (they're talking about bringing more powerful guns against protesters).
Facist state means total media control and violent repression of protesters.
Also, they want to take workers rights out of the constitution, illegaly.
So yes, it's a coup and in fact Dilma was just the rock blocking this corrupt politicians path.

Brazil’s Rousseff ousted by media boycott, conspiring businessmen – ex-president Lula to RT

RT 20 May, 2016
Brazil’s elected leader, Dilma Rousseff, was brought down by a media boycott and businessmen who avoided paying taxes to harm the public purse, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil’s former president, told the Entrevista program on RT Spanish.
RT: Thank you very much, Mr. President, for finding the time to meet with RT.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva: I would also like to thank the international media for its interest in Brazil and the current political discussion with respect to the impeachment [of President Dilma Rousseff]. I’m very happy that I’ll have a chance to tell you what I think about the things that are happening, or have happened, in Brazil, or may happen in the future. I think Brazilian democracy is very young; it is only 31 years old. This is the longest period of democracy in the 500 years of Brazilian history. Yet the conservatives thought that 31 years is enough and decided to overthrow democracy, which they did. By overthrowing democracy, these people denigrated Brazil in the eyes of the world, because the world expected Brazil to do much better.
RT: A little over a week ago, we saw you standing behind President Dilma Rousseff. You were backing her at a difficult time – difficult for her, for Brazil, and for your party. Can you tell us how you felt on the day Dilma was suspended?
L: Frankly, I didn’t want to get involved. I didn’t want to be in that picture, because I think it was cruel. It was basically a crime against Brazilian democracy when Dilma had to step down before the end of her term. I stepped down five years ago, in 2010, at a wonderful moment when Dilma was elected president of the Republic. And I felt very bitter on the day of her impeachment. It was a very sad day for me. It was not just about the president resigning early. Our dream plan collapsed; the plan for integrating society. The plan which showed the world that it is very easy to rule the country and address poverty issues when the needs of the poor are taken into account in the state budget, if you don’t consider it merely as a statistic or a social issue, but really think about people, human beings with rights and responsibilities. All this came tumbling down before my eyes. So I was very angry. And yet I was very calm, preparing for the future because I think that the people who support this plan will soon come back to power in Brazil. The poor people have barely learned to use social benefits, and somebody is already trying to pry them out of their hands. So, to me, frankly, it was a day of wrath. It was very hard on me, and I wish I could stay out of those events. I did what I did out of solidarity with Dilma. I didn’t want her to be alone at such a difficult time. I wanted to show to her opponents that the country would fight back. We have a long way to go before the people of Brazil can enjoy the same standard of living as many other countries around the world.
RT: This was certainly a very powerful image, an image of unity. Curiously, your answer is very similar to what Rousseff herself told RT just on Thursday: that the situation is difficult but the fight has to go on. This process started, and it may take 180 days, six months, or less. What are the legal mechanisms for reinstating Dilma?
L: I think this is a mistake, misunderstanding – what the media say every day, and what the government does. What really happened in Brazil is the Chamber of Deputies initiated a process with the Congress, and we believe it was for purely political reasons, because there were no constitutional violations. The Senate voted in favor of allowing the impeachment process. What this means is that the Senate will now hear the charges brought against President Dilma. But there is no proof that she did anything illegal. Then there will be a vote. The government should have acted as an interim government, because in 20 days, or a month, or two or three months, there will be a vote, and senators may change their minds, and so the interim government will have to go, and the legitimate government will once again be in charge.

WTF is TTIP? The EU-US trade deal explained

Proponents of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership say it will boost economies – Ireland’s in particular. So why are people so suspicious of it?
Suzanne Lynch
Irish Times
Image Trojan horse: anti-trade-deal campaigners protest on the eve of President Obama’s vist to Hannover in April.
It was June 2013 and Ireland was nearing the end of its six-month presidency of the European Union. At a meeting in Luxembourg, the then minister for trade Richard Bruton hailed an historic agreement. After months of behind-the-scenes negotiations, led mostly by Irish officials, EU member states had agreed to open talks with the US on an ambitious trade agreement.
A last-minute attempt by the French to exclude the heavily-subsidised French film industry from the negotiating mandate threatened to derail the sensitive talks at the 11th hour. Following tense negotiations, the rest of the EU’s member states bowed to French’s demands for “l’exception culturelle”, and the deal was done. EU trade ministers signed on the dotted line.
Three years later the EU-US trade deal is reaching a crucial phase. Experts on both sides of the Atlantic agree that a deal must be reached before the end of US president Barack Obama’s term. If not, plans for creating the world’s largest trade pact will be kicked down the road into the mandate of the next US president, with little hope of agreement in the near term.

U.S. Government Secretly Destroyed Evidence in Trial of Accused “9/11 Masterminds”

May 21, 2016
Activist Post By Derrick Broze
In another setback for the death penalty trial of the five men accused of aiding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, two defense lawyers for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed say the U.S. government secretly destroyed relevant evidence.
On May 11, defense lawyers for the accused mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks asked for judge Col. James Pohl and the prosecution team to be recused from the trial, and for the case to be shut down. Defense lawyers David Nevin and Maj. Derek Poteet say that the U.S. government destroyed evidence related to the case, according to the New York Times. The two men are unable to provide further details because the issue is classified, but Mr. Nevin said the evidence was “favorable” to the defendants.
Story http://www.activistpost.com/2016/05/u-s-government-secretly-destroyed-evidence-in-trial-of-accused-911-masterminds.html
An expert with decades of experience with large jets explained how they could not fly that fast that low. That agrees September Clues findings that say 9-11 was made for TV.
Serving the people. rotfalmao.
For me, the false flag is proven by the debris pile being only 30% of what it should have been, the convenience of the explosions eliminating research into the missing trillions, eliminating research into the bringing down of the USSR, the disappearance of all that gold, the immediate removal of all the debris (evidence), the absence of bodies, the absence of any jet wreckage (esp. engines) the lack of a proper criminal investigation, suppression of vids, confiscation of CCTV footage, Bush and Cheney testifying in secret without swearing an oath, Mineta's testimony, http://www.darkpolitricks.com/norman-minetas-testimony-to-the-9-11-commission/ bin Laden's denial, and on and on and on.
I believe the CIA corporate entity was behind it, which would accord with the Sauds (British, US clients) and Mossad being involved.

9.11 skeptics versus logic, reason and scientific principles

By Dark Politricks
Despite directly contacting 9.11 skeptics and debunker websites and asking very very nicely I still haven’t managed to find anyone willing or knowledgeable enough to debate the evidence regarding 9/11 and the official conspiracy theory. The very few people I do find often don’t even know the official story well enough let alone all the various contentious topics surrounding the events of 9.11. Therefore I decided to conduct a little one on one imaginary discussion in the manner I would tackle a debate on the topic if required.
Why would our government do such a thing. Surely you’re not expecting me to believe that George Bush master minded an attack on his own people just to start a war. The expense both in monetary terms, lives and the reputation of the USA has been severely damaged by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. What possible reason exists to commit such a crime.
Yes the wars have been expensive and I am not alleging George Bush was involved at any level as he can barely master his own mind let alone a coordinated attack on the level of 9.11. However that is not to say other members in the US government and / or intelligence community did not know the attacks were about to happen and allowed them for various reasons. Without a full independent investigation we will not know the exact reasons and people involved.
Conspiracy theories are the playground of loons and mentalists with too much time on their hands. We know what happened on 9.11 and the only conspiracy was the one that involved 19 Al Qaeda hijackers who brought carnage to the USA.

Obama Admin Overtly Supported “Moderate” Terrorists Involved in Al Zara Massacre in Syria
By Steven Sahiounie
Global Research, May 21, 2016
On May 12, 2016 at approximately 6:00 am, the armed terrorist group Ahrar al-Sham entered a small sleeping village of unarmed civilians and began a massacre of men, women, children, and in some cases whole families.
Over 100 persons were victims, with the exact figure unknown, because dozens were kidnapped, and their fate is still unknown. This village, Al Zara, had no military or Syrian government presence or connection. It had no military or geographical value to these terrorists. The only reason it was attacked was because the residents were not Sunni Muslims. The armed terrorists Ahrar al-Sham are an exclusively Sunni Muslim group, who are known to be Jihadists, and their stated goal is to establish an Islamic State in Syria. They are killing unarmed civilians of minority sects, as well as their own fellow Sunni Muslims who do not support their goals and tactics.
The terrorists were quick to upload to www.YouTube.com the photos they took while standing on the corpses of young women and children. They proudly flashed the “V” for victory sign.
Aleppo-based journalist Kevork Elmasyan stated that what happened in Al Zara was not a massacre but rather “genocide.”
Ahrar al-Sham did not work alone; they were assisted by Jibhat al-Nusra, which is a US designated terrorist group. However, Ahrar al-Sham is not designated a terrorist group by US law. Recently, Russia tried to push through legislation at the UN whereby Ahrar al-Sham would be designated as a terrorist group, and therefore, not under the cease-fire accord. However, USA blocked this designation, and strongly supported Ahrar al-Sham as a “moderate armed rebel group” working under full cooperation with the Obama administration, CIA and State Department.
When experts questioned why the United States of America would openly, and publically defend and assist Ahrar al-Sham, it was noted that the US policy to bring about regime change in Syria through armed revolution was getting weaker and loosing fighters on the ground, and they needed every Jihadist, or ‘moderate rebel’ they could find. The US policy has been to fight terrorism inside USA, but to support and promote it in Syria, as long as only Syrians are being killed, and not any American military personnel.
The CIA office in Adana, Turkey oversees the terrorists in Syria, supplying weapons, ammunition, satellite imagery, and more. The cash paid to the terrorists comes in from the King of Saudi Arabia directly, and is administered and paid out through a Saudi official in Turkey. Medical needs and hospital services are provided by the Turkish government, a close ally of USA. The CIA training and support of ‘moderate rebels’ in Syria has come under a barrage of attacks; mostly because these so-called ‘moderates’ are in reality followers of Radical Islam. Proof of this is the name the ‘rebels’ of the CIA choose for their unit: “Sons of Righteousness”. Instead of “Sons of Democracy” or “Sons of Freedom” they chose to identify themselves as ‘righteous’, which infers all other who do not share their goals are ‘unrighteous’ and doomed to the Lake of Fire. Democracy and Freedom are not terms they would identify with. I would have thought the CIA would have demanded they choose a different and secular name. It would appear the CIA in Adana have gotten so tired of working with these mercenaries they have lost interest in image making.

The March Against Monsanto is On: The Non-GMO Revolution and the Battle against the “Big 6” GMO

By Timothy Alexander Guzman
On May 21st the ‘March against Monsanto’ takes place around the world including Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina, the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan, Mexico and several countries in Europe and Africa are joining the fight against the GMO giant. There is positive news on the battle against Western corporations that produce and sell Genetically Modified Organisms or “GMO” foods.
Recent trends suggest that the world is becoming more health conscious when it comes to their food supply. For example, for Coca-Cola “sales fell for the fourth straight quarter as demand for its fizzy drinks declined in Europe” and that “Coke and rival PepsiCo PEP -0.80% Inc have been hurt as consumers increasingly turn health-conscious, cutting back on fizzy drinks and turning to teas, fruit juices and smoothies” according to Reuters last month. The Associated Press (AP) reported in 2015 that McDonalds, an American name brand company that sells pure junk food experienced a 2.6% drop in sales worldwide:
The world’s biggest hamburger chain said Wednesday global sales declined 2.3% at established locations during the first three months of the year. That included a 2.6% drop in the US, where it is facing changing tastes and tougher competition. Already this year, McDonald’s has announced a number of changes in the US including a simplified grilled chicken recipe, curbing the use of antibiotics in chicken, and a pay bump and vacation time for workers at company-owned stores amid ongoing protests over its treatment of workers
Another bright spot in the battle against GMO foods is that fast food consumption by children at least in the U.S. is also in decline. Reuters reported in 2015 that children are eating “less” fast food:
Between 2003 and 2010, the number of U.S. kids eating fast food on any given day went down, and the calories from some types of fast foods have declined as well, according to a new study.
“Most prior studies have focused on menu items, but this (one) actually looked at what children are eating,” said coauthor Colin D. Rehm, formerly of the University of Washington in Seattle and now of Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. “The take-home message is that changes can be made, whether they are due to consumer preference or due to what the restaurants have done themselves,” Rehm told Reuters Health by phone. “It shows that change is possible”
Attitudes towards fast food chains and unhealthy products such as Coca-Cola and McDonalds have changed significantly. That is a positive change for human consumption but a negative for the McDonald’s Corporation, Coca-Cola, Monsanto and other GMO corporations. Can the trend continue?
Alexia Foods, a ConAgra food brand announced that they too will become Non-GMO project verified and “that all of the brand’s offerings will be non-GMO by the end of 2016” according to their Press Release. Several other food companies are also moving towards Non-GMO products according to www.non-gmoreport.com:

Billionaire Republicans and Professional Islamophobes: The Pro-Israel Lobby in Brussels

By Sarah Marusek, David Cronin, and David Miller
Global Research, May 21, 2016
Ceasefire
Since Palestinian civil society announced the call in 2005 for an international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, similar to the one that helped end apartheid in South Africa, an array of pro-Israel organisations have been established in Brussels to influence European policy on Israel-Palestine. Most of the discussion of the ‘Israel lobby’ centres on its activities in Washington. But are there similar groups active in Brussels? For more than two years we have been researching that question. It turns out that there is indeed a burgeoning Israel lobby in Brussels.
As with corporate lobbyists, the organisations that make up the pro-Israel lobby in Brussels are not very transparent – the EU’s scant disclosure requirements for lobby groups involve a voluntary transparency register and do not require them to publish their list of donors. However, the European Parliament did pass a law in 2014 calling upon the European Commission to make the register mandatory by 2017. Thus far, there are several pro-Israel groups that have still not registered.
Nevertheless, our research, based on an extensive analysis of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax documents, available online, did uncover that many of these organisations are heavily dependent on American donors, mostly right-wing conservatives; top Republican donors who also support Islamophobic causes and – significantly – groups expanding Israel’s settlement project. This second finding is especially relevant considering the immense influence of the pro-Israel lobby in Washington. Perhaps most strikingly, however, while the pro-Israel lobby in Washington is largely a bipartisan effort, the one operating in Brussels is overwhelmingly Republican.
Before the 2005 BDS call, there were only a small number of pro-Israel groups focused on lobbying EU institutions. These included the European Coalition for Israel, a Christian Zionist group that is opposed to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, and the AJC Transatlantic Institute, the Brussels branch of the American Jewish Committee. The more influential of these two organisations is the latter.
According to its financial records, the American Jewish Committee allocated almost $5 million to its Brussels offshoot between 2005 and 2013. The largest known donor of the AJC, by far, is the Klarman Family Foundation, run by American billionaire Seth Klarman. Forbes currently estimates the businessman-turned-philanthropist’s worth to be about $1.35 billion. For its part, Forward describes Klarman as a ‘wealthy American Jewish investor…following in the footsteps of Sheldon Adelson and Ron Lauder [president of the World Jewish Congress and an ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] in acting on his belief that coverage of Israel within Israel itself is unbalanced and unjustifiably hostile — and that he can do something about it.’ Forward also reports that Klarman is a Republican donor; indeed, he is ranked as the 30th top Republican spender in this year’s presidential election.

Media Lies and Fabrications: “Russia Bombs Syria to Force Refugees into Europe”

Statements by NPR and OSCE
By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, May 21, 2016
The “Morning Edition” program of the U.S. National Public Radio network — which is America’s most-trusted American source of news as measured by “the ratio of people who trust a news outlet to those who distrust it” included on May 20th a segment, “Russia’s Involvement In Syria Worsens Migration Crisis, Zannier Says”, in which the interviewer, Renee Montagne, opened her interview of Lamberto Zannier, the Secretary General of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), by saying:
“There is actually a theory out there to do with the migration crisis in Europe, that Russia may have purposely been bombing Syria with an air campaign in order to send more Syrian migrants into Europe, to destabilize Europe. Now, I’m wondering whether you think that’s far-fetched, but, at the same time, it sort of fits the picture of a Cold War?”
He answered:
“Yeah, certainly Russia dealing in Syria had a number of goals, … but then of course, the impact of the bombings on civilian infrastructure, hospitals etcetera, has created an additional wave of refugees. … It is very difficult to tell whether this was intended or not, but certainly it would fit the picture in a way.”
The wikipedia article “Refugees of the Syrian Civil War” said, right after the Russian bombing had started on 30 September 2015, that as of 15 October 2015 there were shown to be “4,052,011 registered by UNHCR (29 August 2015)[1].” As of today, 20 May 2016, that same site says “4,812,993 refugees (registered, March 2016)[1].” The idea that this 19% increase was one of the reasons or goals which had motivated Russia to start its bombing-campaign in Syria is ludicrous. That’s during around a six-month-long period. But at about six months prior to August of 2015, on 25 March 2015, there were shown to be “3,922,860 registered by UNHCR (18 March 2015)[1].” Not many new refugees were generated during the six-month period prior to Russia’s entry (and that wasn’t a Russian invasion, because the government of Syria had requested this assistance from Russia). But then, many refugees were generated during the first six months after Russia’s entry. This could have reflected Russia’s having enabled many Syrians to escape from ISIS, Al Qaeda, etc., but it also could have reflected damages caused by Russia’s bombing, but even if it had been the latter, this wouldn’t likely have been part of Russia’s motivation for its bombing, such as NPR and OSCE were insinuating. However, on 11 March 2014, a year prior to that 25 March 2015 wiki article, there had been shown to be “2,429,146 registered by UNHCR(February 2014).” That’s around 1.5 million new refugees during about a year’s period. None of that was during Russia’s bombing campaign.

also
Relevant further context here is that “NATO and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) work together to build security and promote stability in the Euro-Atlantic area. They cooperate at both the political and the operational level”, http://ow.ly/VefS300s2Mz
whereas “In Istanbul on 19 November 1999, the OSCE ended a two-day summit by calling for a political settlement in Chechnya and adopting a Charter for European Security. According to then Minister of Foreign Affairs Igor Ivanov, this summit marked a turning point in Russian perception of the OSCE, from an organization that expressed Europe’s collective will, to an organization that serves as a Western tool.” http://ow.ly/URwH300s2EA
For some reason, the U.S. is not charging that the OSCE is a “Russian tool.” Perhaps OSCE officials such as Lamberto Zannier are among the reasons why. After all, NATO is coming out more and more explicitly in favor of war against Russia. http://ow.ly/84tL300s2Hj
Lots of propaganda will need to be part of the buildup toward that. These people (Renee Montagne and Lamberto Zannier) are doing what they are paid to do.
It’s all in service to a broader objective. http://ow.ly/ekVM300s2KT

As with almost everything the EU touches, the level of incompetence with which the EU uses its foreign aid foreign aid budget is staggering, and more than a little bit frightening. It’s another reason to get Britain out on June 23

David Cameron’s blunder at Buckingham Palace last week has thrust the spotlight once again on the appalling misuse of Foreign Aid. The Prime Minister’s description of Nigeria and Afghanistan as “fantastically corrupt” was not his most diplomatic of interventions, considering how he had invited the heads of state of both countries to his “anti-corruption” summit.
This is of significant concern to the Great British Public since both countries are major recipients of British Foreign Aid. What’s more, these countries are in line to receive a further increase in aid under new Department for International Development commitments.
These will aim to direct up to 50 percent of the Department’s official development assistance budget on states and regions classified as “fragile”. The British taxpayer must be very angry to see our elected officials happy to give away significant amounts of their hard-earned money to countries which are clearly acknowledged as highly corrupt.
There is, however, a small crumb of comfort for the taxpayer — these politicians are ultimately accountable for their actions. At the next general election the Great British Public will decide whether or not they are content with their money being squandered in this way.
The Conservatives will most likely be under new leadership by then, and the new leader will have to make sure policies appeal to voters — otherwise the Conservative Party may well lose the next election. A promise to scrap or cut the UK’s foreign aid budget could be a way to do this. If the public approved of this measure, they might re-elect them to see it implemented. This would be true democracy in action.
All of this is in stark contrast to the unelected and unaccountable Commission which runs the EU. The EU, like Britain, has a significant foreign aid budget which totals around £7.2 billion a year.
The United Kingdom, as a member of the EU, is also a major contributor to this budget as well, covering around 10 percent of it. So, we taxpayers contribute twice to foreign aid. However, despite this significant cost, the public has no say over how it is spent.
British taxpayers may indeed question whether it is right for them to be presented with a second EU-derived expenditure, especially considering the huge amount we are already stumping up for our national contribution to foreign aid — £11.7billion in 2014. (The Institute for Fiscal Studies suggests the aid budget will rise to £14.1 billion by 2020.)

Forein 'aid' is in fact a pipeline to convey wealth to the wealthy (and downwards to banks).

9-11 was made for TV special effects

The evidence is on thousands if not tens of thousands of home recordings of MSM broadcasts on the day.

What bothers me about the focus on Bldg 7 is that it concentrates attention on one place. Yet the disassembly of the news media coverage shows it is not the only flaw in the 9-11 disaster movie.

Perhaps if the peeps that did septemberclues.info are still in working order they could make a Popeye version to reach the intellect of the conditioned masses.

Edit. Contemplated changing 'disaster movie' to atrocity..., to mission accomplished..., --- insert your own definition of failure to convince.
The Putin soft cop is a much better production. I'm convinced, so far. Unless we can come up with a better idea.

No Planes Hit The Twin Towers. It was a false flag

Ex-CIA Pilot Gives Sworn Testimony That No Planes Hit The Twin Towers
By: Ron Baitley-Simens
Tapestry 3 Mar 2014
US Will Have To Rebut Or Accept Statement As Truth
A former CIA and civilian pilot has sworn an affidavit, stating that no planes flew into the Twin Towers as it would have been physically impossible.
John Lear, the son of Learjet inventor, Bill Lear, has given his expert evidence that it would have been physically impossible for Boeing 767s, like Flights AA11 and UA175 to have hit the Twin Towers on 9/11, particularly when flown by inexperienced pilots:
‘No Boeing 767 airliners hit the Twin Towers as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors’, he stated in the affidavit.
‘Such crashes did not occur because they are physically impossible as depicted, for the following reasons: in the case of UAL 175 going into the south tower, a real Boeing 767 would have begun ‘telescoping’ when the nose hit the 14 inch steel columns which are 39 inches on center.
‘The vertical and horizontal tail would have instantaneously separated from the aircraft, hit the steel box columns and fallen to the ground.
‘The engines when impacting the steel columns would havemaintained their general shape and either fallen to the ground or been recovered in the debris of the collapsed building.
‘No Boeing 767 could attain a speed of 540 mph at 1000 feet above sea level ‘parasite drag doubles with velocity’ and ‘parasite power’ cubes with velocity.
-The fan portion of the engine is not designed to accept the volume of dense air at that altitude and speed.
-The piece of alleged external fuselage containing 3 or 4 window cutouts is inconsistent with an airplane that hit 14 inch steel box columns, placed at over 500 mph. It would have crumpled.
-No significant part of the Boeing 767 or engine could have penetrated the 14 inch steel columns and 37 feet beyond the massive core of the tower without part of it falling to the ground.

So, to sum up. Hani Hanjour, took a 757, with zero time in type, did the maneuver described above, a 400 knot 330 degree sprialing dive at 2500 fpm, only gaining 30 knots, then 30 knots more descending from 2200 feet at full power, with a very steady hand as to not overshoot or hit the lawn, inside ground effect, at 460 knots impact speed, but was refused to rent a 172 cause he couldnt land it at 65 knots? C'mon... sounds like a bad B movie... Please see right margin for more testimony regarding Hani and his training.

Government capitulation on TTIP driven by unlikely Tory-Labour alliance

RT UK 20 May, 2016
An unlikely alliance of Labour and Tory Euroskeptic MPs has forced the government to bow to demands to protect the National Health Service (NHS) from a controversial US-EU trade deal being brokered behind closed doors.
Tory rebels threatened to join forces with Labour and the Scottish National Party (SNP) to support an amendment to the Queen’s Speech highlighting the lack of legislation protecting Britain’s public health service from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had called on his MPs to back the amendment, which explicitly “regretted” the fact Downing Street had no intention of legislating to safeguard the NHS from the contentious trade agreement.

Rattled by the prospect of a Tory rebellion, Downing Street blinked first and vowed to support the amendment just two weeks ahead of Britain’s EU referendum vote. More than 24 pro-Brexit Tory MPs vowed to back the amendment, as did the Green Party MP and the SNP.
A spokesman for Number 10 insisted the NHS had never been jeopardized by the EU-US trade deal.
“As we’ve said all along there is no threat to the NHS from TTIP. So if the amendment is selected we will accept it,” he said.
However, anti-TTIP campaigners reject this argument, insisting the draft trade agreement will pave the way for further privatization of Britain’s public health service.
There is no guarantee at present that Downing Street’s U-turn on the amendment will mean the government is compelled to take legal action to ensure the NHS is definitively exempt from TTIP.

60,000 Chinese factory workers replaced by robots

RT Business 27 May, 2016
Foxconn, a major manufacturer of devices for Apple and Samsung, has reportedly sacked 60,000 workers in one of its factories in China and replaced them with robots.
The factory in China's Kunshan region has reduced the number of employees from 110,000 to 50,000 thanks to the introduction of robots, reports the South China Morning Post.
More https://www.rt.com/business/344565-china-robots-replace-workers/
The thing about robots is that they are not consumers. The PTB can either create a world of leisure, voluntary work and education or reduce the population. There isn't a 3rd alternative. Noting that the luciferian PTB are soulless psychopathic megalomaniacs, guess what they are going for? Cancer has gone from next to zero to 1 in 3 in 100 years, likely due to radiation from wars, leaking nuke plants, deliberately harmful storage of waste. Deadly viruses are created on a regular basis. We are being sprayed with harmful chemicals on a daily basis. Our food is being increasingly toxified along with the water. The weather is being interfered with. Osborne is also killing off the most vulnerable quite deliberately as a policy.
clothcapclothcap on June 1st, 2016 03:19 pm (UTC)
Is Osborne CP like the DWP?

In this newsletter we reveal that the DWP cover-up over a coroner’s future deaths warning continues, with the DWP claiming to have destroyed the relevant documents. We also reveal that in spite of the hundreds of millions of pounds being spent on employment and support allowance (ESA) assessments, thousands are being cancelled because there are too few dual audio recorders available. And finally, we highlight the case of the partially paralysed claimant with one third of his skull removed who was still found fit for work.
DWP documents allegedly destroyed
In the last newsletter we highlighted the link between some of the 49 peer reviewed claimant deaths and the DWP’s failure to follow its own six point plan for claimants at risk of suicide.
In 2014 the DWP gave an undertaking to the coroner in the Michael O’Sullivan case that they would “issue a reminder to staff about the guidance related to suicidal ideation that has been described in this report.” This was a reference to the six point plan.
We are concerned that the DWP may not have actually carried through on that promise and that some of the 49 deaths might have been prevented if they had. We have repeatedly asked the DWP via the Freedom of Information Act for proof that they issued a reminder.
The DWP have now claimed that their policy is to destroy memos after one year, so no records exist of the reminder they issued. But as evidence that they do remind assessors about the plan, they provided this extract from a memo sent out 18 months after their pledge to the coroner:
“The current filework guidelines are available in the knowledge library. Current version is 10 and it states: “Where there is evidence of a previous suicide attempt, suicidal ideation or self-harm expressed in the ESA50/ESA50A, the HCP [healthcare professional] must request FME [further medical evidence].”
We don’t think this is a good enough response and we don’t believe that all trace of, and reference to, a memo allegedly issued electronically in 2014 would have disappeared.
The DWP seem to believe that when it comes to claimants losing their lives, they can get away with anything.
Establishing the truth is the first step in proving that they can’t - and we aren’t giving up now.
ESA medicals cancelled
With the DWP paying hundreds of millions of pounds a year to Maximus for ESA assessments, you’d think that between them they could find the cash for a few dozen dual audio recorders. Especially as the DWP insist dual recorders, which produce two identical CDs have to be used if a claimant wants a recording of their medical.
But it seems not.
