I have to say, I find it remarkable that a “random shooting” in a Jerusalem synagogue, which naturally would have contained mostly Israeli Jews, can produce a decidedly non-random death toll of one British and three American citizens, and no Israelis.
What are the odds, eh?
As Netanyahu said about 9/11:
“It’s very good. […] Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy [for Israel].”
And then again in 2008:
“We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” Ma’ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events “swung American public opinion in our favor.”
The Borg collective, with Vladimir Putin exiled to the far left.
Media reports on Saturday claimed that Russian President Putin was planning to spurn the G20 leaders breakfast on Sunday and leave the farcical psychopathic love-in early. Within a few hours however, a Kremlin spokesman denied that Putin had any such plans.
If the idea of an early exit did happen to cross the mind of the Russian president, it would be entirely understandable. From the moment Putin arrived in Australia, most of the G20 leaders have acted like the discourteous, arrogant, obnoxious quislings of empire they are. Read more »
Screen shot from a recent ‘ISIL’ recruitment video showing US military tents in the background
When pondering the genesis of modern wars, both big and small, and who is responsible, it’s useful to look to the source of the instruments of war, because after all, without them, having a nice war would be difficult, unless soldiers were willing to go back to hand to hand combat.
But there’s a small detail that is always left out of such Western media reports; neither Saudi Arabia nor Qatar (or any other corrupt Gulf monarchy) have significant weapons industries. Both buy the vast majority of their weapons from…you guessed it! the USA!
So I hope everyone understands that the US government is, indirectly via gulf states, arming ISIL and then going to war to ‘disarm’ them of the weapons they sent to them and left for them in Iraq… and then selling more weapons to them…and on it goes.
War is, and always has been, a racket, designed to do three main things:
make money for the ‘elite’
keep the population afraid and therefore supportive of their warmongering ‘elite’ masters
Today, Canada began bombing Iraq and Syria, justified in large part by a ‘terror attack’ the official narrative for which is falling apart. I’ve written previously about the suspicious background to the attacks in Ottawa and another city near Montreal a few weeks ago, but new details have emerged that pose serious questions about the official narrative surrounding the Ottawa war memorial and parliament shooting by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.

Three weeks ago, on October 3rd, Canadian PM Stephen Harper’s Conservative party narrowly passed a motion to “launch combat missions” in Iraq alongside other Western warmongering nations and their clients in the Middle East. The motion was passed (157 for to134 against) despite stiff opposition from the NDP and Liberal opposition parties and a Canadian public traditionally averse to any kind of foreign military campaigns. On the day of the vote, an online poll showed almost 60% of respondents were against Canada joining the ‘coalition’.
NDP opposition leader Tom Mulcair said that the Harper government was “plunging Canada into a prolonged war without a credible plan” and that bombing ISIS “will only create more recruits for ISIS and can, in fact, prove to be disastrously counterproductive”. On Monday, former prime minister Jean Chretien again criticized Canada’s military involvement in Iraq saying that it was “just the latest in a long history of interventions by western countries that have left “scars” on the Middle East” and that “Canada should be putting its emphasis on humanitarian assistance for the refugees in the region.” Read more »
As Russia continues to assert itself and lay claim to its rightful place as a leading global power, Western governments and their media whores, in a desperate attempt to preserve their faltering hegemony, are resorting to increasingly outrageous anti-Russian stunts and manipulations that surpass even the worst propaganda of the Cold War era.
When the first ISILTM ‘beheading’ video was released I was immediately struck by how utterly counter-productive it was for the ‘Islamic State’ to produce a glossy, high-definition video of the event and make it available to Western audiences. If the goal of such a dubious PR campaign was to intimidate the anglo-American Empire into backing off from attacking the alleged Levantine ‘rebels’, then it failed miserably.
What’s most amazing however is that the IS leadership were unable to foresee that lopping the heads off US and UK citizens and producing a made for TV video of the gruesome spectacle would simply gift the anglo-American Empire builders with the justification to launch a bombing campaign against the video makers. I mean, how politically ignorant do you have to be to not realise that? Did they learn nothing from the 9/11 attacks? Western civilian casualties are the US military industrial complex’s bread and butter! They use Western civilian casualties of Arab terrorism to justify the invasion and occupation of the Arab countries that the erstwhile Arab terrorists are trying to rid of US occupation! Read more »
The change.org petition demanding a re-run of the Scottish referendum, “counted by impartial international parties”, has now reached 93,000 signatures as incredulous reaction mounts to the highly dubious referendum vote. Even Ron Paul expressed extreme scepticism about the result. The British media, meanwhile, is having a field day mocking the viral video footage of suspect activity at counting venues across Scotland, laughing off the fact that the only international observers to report anything about how the referendum was conducted were Russian observers, and dismissing Scots’ calls for recounts and fresh referenda as being “sour grapes” based on “conspiracy theories”.
But are these 93,000 (mostly) Scottish citizens, and the thousands of Facebook users demanding an investigation, just deluded sore losers?
If we look at the British voting system in general, we find a somewhat less than glowing 2008 report from the Council of Europe’s human rights watchdogstating that reforms to the postal voting rules introduced by Labour made electoral fraud in Britain “childishly simple”. The British voting system was now open to fraud and the system “makes it extremely easy to add bogus characters to the voters’ lists”, the report stated.
But to conclude that the Scottish referendum specifically was likely rigged for a ‘No’ vote by ‘British’ intelligence, we need to provide reasonable evidence that the British elite have the necessary character ‘qualities’, motive and operational history to engage in such a serious crime. We must also provide reasonable cause to believe that the British government and media opinion polls, that generally predicted a majority ‘No’ vote in the run-up to the referendum, were false, that the majority of Scots intended to vote yes, and that rigging of the vote was therefore necessary. Most importantly, we must present a plausible scenario, backed up by evidence, that British agents had the opportunity to commit this most undemocratic of crimes. Read more »
