The Truth About ISIS With Syrian Girl (MUST SEE RECAP)


Who is backing ISIS? What is the agenda behind the group's takeover of Iraq and the Middle East?



ISIS has survived to grow strong because of state backing. In fact the actions of ISIS are actually helping US-Saudi-Israeli foreign policy by splitting up Iraq and destroying Syria. The ISIS takeover weakens the support network for Hezbollah in Lebanon. This is the real reason why there was little western assistance to the Maliki Government's fight against ISIS because they'd be destroying their own geopolitically useful jihadists.

Two outcomes are now likely; that the West will 
1. Continue with very limited air attacks against ISIS to stop the jihadists overrunning oil interests in Kurdish areas and encourage their move towards attacks in Syria, or
2. Fully engage with ISIS in a ground war and re-occupation of Iraq where the US would still try to fuel the fighting in Syria and attacks against Iran.  

Note: That all the points Syrian Girl refers to in the clip above have been recorded online - most of which were referenced with still images in this interview. I would also comment that during the Iraq insurgency the US ineptly tried to blame Iran multiple times for supplying arms into the fight (via White House and General Patraeus claims) but failed.

The summation right at the end, that ISIS has been aided by major powers in order to serve a geopolitical agenda, is undoubtedly correct.

RECAP: Ellen Brown - Public Banking 2013: Funding the New Economy, June 2nd 2013




An excellent summation of public banking.

The people can loan (create) money to themselves (public banking) rather than get loans (created money) from a private bank. When you have control of a public bank then loans can be issued at low rates and debt can be forgiven if necessary. Infrastructure can be built via bank profits plus from the created money (loans) from the bank.

The main danger comes from irresponsible lending and issuing too much money via loans that will cause inflation. With responsible controls failed repayment and inflation can be held in check.

Ron Paul Joins 9/11 Truth Movement


In an interview with the Ron Paul Channel on VoicesofLiberty.com, Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC) shares his thoughts on the 28 pages redacted from the 9/11 Commission report.



There's no hard talk about 911 truth here apart from a call to release some censored documents (that implicate Saudi Arabia in the attacks?), but there is a lot of great anti-war discussion between Paul and Congressman Jones.

In The West Respect for Truth No Longer Exists — Paul Craig Roberts


The Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money.
 
The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia.

Now we have the media story of the armored Russian column that allegedly crossed into Ukraine and was destroyed by Ukraine’s rag-tag forces that ISIS would eliminate in a few minutes. British reporters fabricated this story or were handed it by a CIA operative working to build a war narrative.
-------------------------------------------------------
What we witness in this fabricated story is the total lack of integrity in the entirety of
the Western media.


A story totally devoid of any evidence to support it has been broadcast world wide. The White House has issued a statement saying that it cannot confirm the story, but nevertheless the White House continues to issue accusations against Russia for which the White House can supply no evidence.

Consequently, Western repetition of bald-faced lies has become truth for huge numbers of peoples. As I have emphasized in my columns, these Western lies are dangerous, because they provoke war.
The same group in Washington and the same Western “media” are telling the same kind of lies that were used to justify Washington’s wars in Iraq (weapons of mass destruction), Afghanistan (Taliban = al Qaeda), Syria (use of chemical weapons), Libya (an assortment of ridiculous charges), and the ongoing US military murders in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.

Western society needs to do some housekeeping and clean out the corporate media and present political system. We have no choice if we want to put an end to the fighting.

Update on the Silence from MH17 Shot Down. Russia is Asking UN Security Council for a Briefing on the Results.


Russia is calling for the UN Security Council to do a briefing about MH17 and the investigation results.



The behaviour of the West and the Kiev Government point to their culpability in the shootdown. Poroshenko's military offensive on the crash site, the witholding of air traffic control tape recordings, the delay in releasing the black box data, plus the faked phone calls and video, used to implicate Russia and the rebels, are actions one would associate with a guilty party.

Keiser Report (E642): Saudi America


In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert ask why, if fracking is so great, is it a state secret? A UK government report looking at the economic consequences in rural Britain is so heavily redacted that none are allowed to know the third “major social impact” the fracking process may cause. They also discuss one energy analyst’s call for fracking as the ‘dotcom bubble’ of our age. In the second half, Max interviews an activist from Germany, Lars Maehrholz, who has seen tens of thousands across Germany attend his weekly Stop the Fed rallies.



Great show starting with the fracking fraud. Make sure to check out the excellent second half.

Israel Wants a Truce that Does Not Include a Halt on Assassinations


While Cairo is witnessing talks about a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip and in light of an international effort to reach a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel, Israeli security officials have demanded that the policy of assassinations against the Palestinian leaders would not stop.
------------------------------------------------------
The security officials explained that the security apparatus demands that the Israeli government “reserves the possibility of returning to the assassinations choice,” adding that “it is prohibited to waive this requirement in the context of the negotiations” taking place in Egypt.

Walla website quoted an Israeli security official as claiming that the assassinations issue is a “point of serious concern among the movement leaders.”

He added, in a sarcastic tone, that “if Hamas wants to control the sector, it should do so from the tunnels and cellars.”
http://alethonews.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/israel-wants-a-truce-that-does-not-include-a-halt-on-assassinations/

The 'right to assassinate' is a heinous proposition - especially when a peace is being negotiated in 'good faith'.

According to the article the volume of goods allowed into Gaza will increase and money from outside countries allowed in. However, I doubt the blockade will be fully lifted or only temporarily lifted before the next trumped up excuse is given, by Israel, for continued bombing/oppression.

Smart Talk with Andrew Mazzone and Dr. Paul Craig Roberts


Smart Talk is a series of discussion with leading economists around the world moderated by Andrew Mazzone.



Great discussion, if a bit technical, on the present economic situation where Roberts outlines the obvious problems of outsourcing jobs and industry to maximise corporate profits at the expense of the overall wealth of the country. The "greed is good" and "quarterly results" mentality has taken over civic responsibility and long term wealth generating objectives. A lot of what appears here is found in PCR's excellent book The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism.

Note that other corporate lobby groups that impact Washington policy, that Roberts did not get to air, but has written about, include the insurance and pharmaceutical industries.

Peter Lavelle on the Western Media's Blatant Lies on Virtually Everything




Excellent interview opening with the conflict in Ukraine and the shootdown of flight MH17. I agree with Dawson's view (as opposed to Lavelle's) that the neocons were not expecting to bring democracy to places like Iraq but conflict that generates revenue for the military industrial complex and to destroy enemies of Israel.

I sent this interview to the Tip Off page for ABC News Australia with this comment:

The following interview is a very interesting take on real news coverage and analysis concerning Ukraine, and the Middle East.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaA7_rPaXQY&list=UU1vTH0ByVIcIOB83FbvHP7Q

ABC journalists and producers need to listen to all or part of this interview. At least listen to the first 5 minutes. It gets down to the nuts and bolts of the alternative news viewpoint and should indicate why people are turning off mainstream news sources, which is especially true of the US corporate media.

The next guest set to be interviewed is Pepe Escobar of the Asia Online Times - where the discussion will centre on ISIS (which has been heavily supported by the west and Saudi Arabia in their war against Syria). Do you notice that this ISIS narrative is quite different to what we have been served up on TV ? It's one thing to talk about tactical or strategic battles, and rivalries between Al Nusra and ISIS, like David Kilcullen did on Lateline the other night, but another thing to ask where all the money and arms are coming from for all these combatants. That's the 'embarrassing' part of the equation that, if addressed, could end the fighting.

9/11 Probe Closing in on Israel - Saudi Hijackers were Patsies


In 2001 Saudi Arabia allowed the CIA to borrow fifteen Saudi intelligence assets and bring them to the US on “snitch visas” – special visas used to reward Saudi CIA assets with a trip to America. These fifteen young men, some from the Kingdom’s leading families, were shadowed, impersonated, and in some cases apparently replaced by doubles. (The pork-chop-loving “Mohammed Atta” in Florida was a fluent speaker of Hebrew according to his stripper girlfriend Amanda Keller.)

The Israeli Mossad appears to have been responsible for surveilling and setting up the 19 patsies, 15 of them Saudis, who would be blamed for 9/11; reports by journalists Christopher Ketcham and Justin Raimondo, and an investigative report by Carl Cameron of Fox News, revealed that Israel mounted the biggest spy operation ever against the US as it surveilled (or “ran”) the 9/11 hijacker-patsies. Hundreds of 9/11-related Israel spies were arrested; all were quickly released on orders from above.
---------------------------------------------
Mossad agents Paul Kurzberg, Silvan Kurzberg, Israelis Yaron Shmuel, and Omer Gavriel Marmari were arrested on the morning of 9/11 as they were filming and celebrating their agency’s handiwork. Though the 9/11-perp Mossad agents failed polygraph tests, Michael Chertoff, a US-Israeli dual citizen then in charge of the FBI’s Criminal Investigation Division, killed the investigation and ordered the “dancing Israelis” sent back to Israel.

Three Israelis were also arrested in New York on 9/11 with a truck load of explosives in an apparent effort to blow up the George Washington Bridge. Chertoff ordered mobbed-up New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik to destroy all records of the arrest, and witnesses have been murdered; but the New York Police audio recording of the arrest escaped destruction and can be heard on YouTube.

This is only a tiny fraction of the evidence implicating Israel in 9/11.
http://presstv.com/detail/2014/08/05/374079/911-probe-closing-in-on-israel/

If immediate arrests of people who lied under oath to the 911 Commission were conducted, along with arrests of those that conducted the NIST building investigation fraud, then this can of worms, involving Israelis would be sprung open.

Obama Says the "T" Word - Torture


Language is the great tool of the tyrants. It always has been, and always will be. Patriots are expected to abide by a PATRIOT Act that destroys their Bill of Rights, support “surgical strikes” against “enemy combatants” by the Department of “Defense,” and cheer the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to those who wage war. Find out more about the doublespeak that underpins our political unreality on this week's edition of The Eyeopener report.



We know the US has tortured people. Admitting it does not change the fact that nothing has happened. The big problem is the Justice Department and the mainstream media have been white washing what happened and downplaying serious criminal wrong doing.

Quote: "Our language has been weaponised against us" ... to make us think about things simplistically (and falsely) to hide the plain truth.

Ron Paul on CIA Torture Report
The White House has still not released the Congressional report detailing the CIA’s use of torture as an interrogation technique. While a full report exists and was written by the Senate specifically with the intent of it being made public, the Obama administration is hoping to instead release a redacted version approved by the CIA with key details missing, according to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Some who have long opposed the spy agency’s practices feel the report should be made public regardless of an almost certain negative domestic and international backlash, as former Rep. Ron Paul explains to RT’s Ameera David.

Did Ukraine Attack Its Own Tanks? White House "Can't Confirm Russian Convoy Was Destroyed By Kiev"


More to the point, the onus is on Ukraine to present some evidence, in fact any evidence, of a destroyed Russian military convoy instead of merely building upon a story conceived by the two UK media outlets, because if Ukraine indeed has no evidence, then its story falls apart and what's worse, the credibility and reputation of its government, of NATO and certainly of the UK press would be in tatters.

So what other possibility is there? Well, one that is all too unpalatable for Ukraine, namely that in its excitement to blow something up, it may have well destroyed some of its own military vehicles. A possible lead to such a turn of events comes from this Interfax report citing the leadership of the breakaway Donetsk People's Republic.


The leadership of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic has dismissed the Ukrainian government's statement on destroying a convoy of what appeared to be Russian armored vehicles in eastern Ukraine.

"We haven't received any armored vehicles from Russia. No Russian units, including Russian armored vehicles, have crossed the border. Hence, no Russian armored vehicles could have been destroyed," DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening.

Purgin claimed that, on the contrary, the militias destroyed about 100 Ukrainian armored vehicles.

"A lot of Ukrainian armored vehicles were destroyed today, 7 at one place, 12 at another. And the same all over the DPR territory. A total of about 100 of them," Purgin said.
The implication is clear: while 100 or so Ukraine armored vehicles may or may not have been destroyed, one wonders if indeed the Ukraine army was responsible in "aiding" the separatists with what would appear to be a friendly-fire incident?

But perhaps the most damning evidence comes from none other than the White House itself, which according to CNN just admitted that while it accuses Moscow of "incursions" it can't confirm the convoy was destroyed by Kiev.
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-15/did-ukraine-attack-its-own-tanks-white-house-cant-confirm-russian-convoy-was-destroy


If the coup Government in Kiev would simply cease military activity in the East these sorts of incidents would not happen. A political solution, with real elections would stop the bloodshed. The problem is that the fascists (actual) in the west do not want to lose their ill-gotten power through the ballot box.

Putin Says The Petrodollar Must Die, "The Dollar Monopoly In Energy Trade Is Damaging Russia's Economy"


On one hand, despite initial weakness following Europe's triple-dip red alert, futures declined only to surge higher after some headline or another out of Russia was again spun to suggest imminent Ukraine de-escalation (something which Russia whose only interest is to keep crude prices high, has absolutely zero interest in), perpetuating a rumor which was set off by a Russian media outlet tweet last week that has sent S&P futures over 50 higher in less than a week on... nothing.

On the other, Putin just said the following, which no matter how one spins it, shows precisely how Russia is inclined vis-a-vis future (un-de-counter) escalations.

Syrian Kurds, Not U.S. Military, Rescued Trapped Yazidis In Iraq


In a perfect example of how world events can be misconstrued in mainstream media outlets for propaganda purposes, recent reports regarding trapped Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar have been used as cover for the justification of an American bombing campaign in Iraq.

This tragedy, which is very real, has been presented to the American public as the reason that the U.S. military is engaging in “targeted airstrikes” in Iraq, despite the fact that the area where the airstrikes initially took place was Erbil, a “hub” for major international oil companies which is not “in the vicinity” of Mt. Sinjar.

Although some airstrikes did eventually take place near Mt. Sinjar, the truth is that the trapped Yazidis were used as an excuse for the American military to act as protection for oil fields and international oil interests.

Now, after reports have trickled in suggesting that conditions on the ground on Mt. Sinjar are “better than expected” and that many Yazidis have actually been able to escape the mountain to safer areas, the “rescue mission” that was in the works while oil interests were being secured is now being called off.
Of course, the mainstream Western press is attempting to paint the improved conditions on Mt. Sinjar as a success of the American military, U.S. Marines, and other related personnel. However, the fact is that the U.S. military personnel only ever engaged in air relief drops and “reconnaissance.”

The real heroes for the Mt. Sinjar Yazidis are not NATO military personnel, but Syrian Kurds. This is because groups of Syrian Kurdish fighters, upon learning of the fate of the people trapped on Mt. Sinjar, organized and battled through IS forces, militarily digging out a safe corridor by which to remove them from the mountain and give them safe passage into Syria or some other area.
-------------------------------------------------------
As the Associated Press reported on August 12, “For the past few days, fighters have been rescuing Yazidis from the mountain, transporting them into Syrian territory to give them first aid, food and water, and returning some to Iraq via a pontoon bridge.”

Ismail Rashu, a Yazidi who had escaped to Kurdish Syria, stated “The (Kurdish fighters) opened a path for us. If they had not, we would still be stranded on the mountain.”
http://www.activistpost.com/2014/08/syrian-kurds-not-us-military-rescued.html#!bDGQ5z

Those directing Western Governments do not really have any interest in humanitarian missions. There is almost always and alertative reason for intervention.
