The vomit-inducing farce at the UN Security Council meeting accusing Russia and Syria of every evil under the sun
I watched the entire sordid video below. The blatant lies coming from US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, are completely vomit-inducing. Also, yukky to watch are the reps to the UN from UK, France, Spain. The one I found the most horribly pathetic was the rep from the Ukraine. Ugh and double ugh!! It also looks like the governments of Malaysia and Senegal have been bribed to the teeth by both the KSA and USA. And, Uruguay's rep, the country lamenting it's not considered European because doncha know they have a big % of blondes in their measly 4 Mil population, was also licking USA's behind.
All in all, most were licking USA's rump and begging for seconds. Absolutely, no will power. Puppetry at its best.
And, pray tell, why this UN farce of an emergency meeting? For what? Is it because Syria bombed out the US/UK/Israel/France/Norway/Australia/KSA/Qatar/Turkey manned Ops Centre(s) in the Aleppo caves where all those videos of headchopping the world was forced to watch were produced, filmed and distributed from? Is it because those Ops Centres were in control of every headchopper going after Assad and the pro-Assad groups and now EVIL INCARNATE is at a disadvantage without those few dozen puppet-masters? But why worry, plenty more are to be found in Washington, London, Tel Aviv, Paris, et al. AND, countless more amongst the dual citizenship holders.
Hey, this thought just came to me ... whatever happened to Jihadi John? Did he get the millions of dollars he was likely promised or is he too laying somewhere in a shallow grave. Was Jihadi John an Israeli Jew or a dual citizenship holder from elsewhere? I wouldn't be surprised. Jews make good actors just like they make excellent fiction writers. Look at the stuff coming out of Hollywood with left-handed Jewish actors at the top of the heap. Wasn't Jihadi John left-handed?
Airhead Samantha Power, the woman whose speeding motorcade killed a 7 yr old child in Cameroon and for that life taken away so young, the almighty government she works for, thought it fit to compensate the family with $1700 and 2 cows and a sack or two of flour and rice, was reading a long litany about the evil Russia and the eviler Assad and how Assad is killing his own people, blah, blah, blah. She even regurgitated (for the 100th time?) the rotten smelly false tale of the "dusty Syrian boy" who was rescued by brave White Helmet heroes. Sheesh! Doesn't anybody tell these utter idiots that that propaganda have been proven to be propaganda by the Alternative Media and repeating the same mantra re-enforces the concept in more and more citizens that "yes" the government is lying and keeps on lying and lying and lying?
She said three out of four centres of the "White Helmets" were destroyed. Were they really? Were the centres destroyed belonged to the White Helmets or are they a front for those coordinating the jihadis in their war against the legitimate government of Syrian? I suspect the reason US/UK/France are in such an uproar is because those centres were manned mainly by agents of these three countries' dual citizenship holders. As for the White Helmets, read the excellent investigative reporting below and become a little better informed.The real Syria Civil Defence Expose NATOS White Helmets as terrorist linked imposters

U.S. Coalition Intelligence “Operations Room” Inside Syria, Destroyed
by Russian Missile Attack: Thirty Israeli, American, British, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari Intelligence Officials Killed, Report
The US and its allies had established a Field Operations Room in the Aleppo region integrated by intelligence personnel. Until it was targeted by a Russian missile attack on September 20, this “semi-secret” facility was operated by US, British, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi and Qatari intelligence personnel.
According to Fars News, this intelligence facility was attacked by Russia in the immediate wake of the US Air Strikes against Syrian SAA forces at Deir Ezzor in support of the ISIS-Daesh terrorists. “The Russian warships stationed in Syria’s coastal waters targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room, killing over two dozen Israeli and western intelligence officers”
“The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,”
The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains....
Russia’s Zakharova Viciously Mocks America’s UN Ambassador for Remarks on Syria
US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said that Russia should be “ashamed” for the “stunt” of calling for an emergency UN Security Council meeting after coalition bombs killed 80 Syrian Army forces, but the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson had a fierce response.
The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova issued a dare to US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power after the American envoy condemned Russia for calling an emergency meeting over the deaths of 80 Syrian Army forces at the hands of US-led coalition bombing in violation of the ceasefire agreement....
....Samantha Power took to the United Nations not to express regret for the deaths, but to fire back against Russia and the Assad regime calling the emergency meeting of the UN Security Council a "stunt" and a "game" while blasting Russia for "grandstanding" and accusing Moscow of "bombing civilians."....

U.S. Allies 'Volunteer' To Share (Implausible) Blame For Deir Ezzor Attack
The U.S. is trying to distribute the blame for its air support of ISIS against the Syrian Arab Army in Deir Ezzor.
The facts, not put into doubt by any U.S. statement, via the Russian military report after Saturday's incident:
"Today at 17:00-17:50 Moscow time, international anti-Daesh coalition (two F-16 and two A-10 jets) carried out four strikes on Syrian government forces' units encirled by Daesh near Deir ez-Zor airport. The coalition's aircraft entered Syrian airspace from the side of the Iraqi border," Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
As a result of the attack, 62 Syrian soldiers were killed and some 100 others were injured, according to information received from the Syrian command in Deir ez-Zor, he said.
The Syrian government now says some 82 soldiers were killed in the attack which also destroyed 3 T-72 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles, an anti-aircraft gun and at least 4 mortars. Following the attack the Islamic State troops stormed the Syrian government position on the Jabal Thardeh hill. They are now able to harass the airport of Deir Ezzor, the only supply line for the ISIS besieged city and the 150,000+ civilians living there under government protection.
We note that this was not the first U.S. attack on Syrian government forces in Deir Ezzor. Back in December 3 Syrian soldiers were killed in an air raid. In June a U.S. air attack on Manbij killed some 100 civilians. No U.S. attack on any ISIS target in Syria ever came near such casualty numbers......

Israel linked to suspension of Palestine course at UC Berkeley
The University of California, Berkeley – an institution synonymous with free speech protests in the 1960s – has shut down a student-led course on Palestine.
The censorship is one of Nicholas Dirks’ last acts as chancellor of the college. His administration decided to suspend the course after Israel-aligned organizations demanded that he do so.
There are indications of pressure from the Israeli government as well.
Dirks, who is stepping down as chancellor in the wake of persistent scandals over finances and personal conduct, leaves as he arrived: amid controversy over his role in stigmatizing and suppressing speech and scholarship related to Palestine..........

US Desperately Pumps ‘Humanitarian’ Smokescreen for Failing Syria Ceasefire
Washington’s lie about seeking a genuine ceasefire in Syria is in danger of being exposed for the world to see. So, hilariously, a charade is being hurriedly orchestrated in order to hide this ignominy. As usual, the Syrian government is being scapegoated for the real cause of violence in the country. That real cause is Washington’s state-sponsored terrorist-fueled war for regime change.
After four days of continuing deadly breaches by US-backed «rebels» since the Kerry-Lavrov ceasefire deal was implemented last Monday, Washington and the dutiful Western mainstream media are preparing the inevitable excuses.
Rather than focusing on ongoing «rebel» violence in contravention of the truce, US Secretary of State John Kerry fingered the Syrian government for preventing humanitarian access to insurgent-held eastern Aleppo as the reason for why the ceasefire is in danger of collapsing.
....So conspicuous and damning is Washington’s nefarious role in Syria’s conflict – which has resulted in 400,000 dead and millions turned into desperate refugees – that this crime has to be covered up at all costs. But covering it up is becoming futile because of the increasing glaring reality.
Kerry accused the Syrian government of causing «unacceptable repeated delays» in delivery of humanitarian aid convoys to the northern city. Some 300,000 people are estimated to be stuck in dire conditions in the eastern side of Aleppo, which has become a key battleground in the five-year war.....

Washington’s Hawks Push New Cold War
Does the failure of the U.S.-backed, major insurgent August “push” on Aleppo – and the terms of the consequent ceasefire, to which some in the U.S. only irascibly agreed – constitute a political defeat for the U.S. and a “win” for Russia?
Yes, in one way: Moscow may, (just may) have cornered America into joint military air attacks on Al Qaeda in Syria, but in another way, one would have to be somewhat cautious in suggesting a Russian “win” (although Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s diplomacy has been indeed tenacious).
Secretary of State John Kerry’s Syria agreement with Lavrov though, has sparked virtual open warfare in Washington. The “Cold War Bloc,” which includes Defense Secretary Ash Carter and House Speaker Paul Ryan, is extremely angry.
The Defense Department is in near open disobedience: when asked in a press teleconference if the military would abide by the terms of the agreement and share information with the Russians after the completion of the seven-day ceasefire, Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian, the commander of the U.S. Air Forces Central Command, which is directing the bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria, responded: “I think … it would be premature to say we’re going to jump right into it. And I’m not saying yes or no.”...

Frustrating the war lobby
By trying to block a $1.15 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia, a bipartisan group of US senators is challenging one of the key forces that shape American foreign policy: the arms industry. Their campaign shines a light on the role that this industry plays in whipping up fears of danger in the world. How do Americans know that Saudi Arabia is a peace-loving country dedicated to fighting terrorism? The same way we know that Russia is a snarling enemy on a rampage of conquest: The arms industry tells us so.
“We must respond to the rise of ISIS terrorism, Russian aggression on NATO’s doorstep, provocative moves by Iran and North Korea, and an increasingly powerful China,” the Aerospace Industry Association recently declared. Issuing warnings through its own mouthpieces, though, is not enough to shape public opinion. The industry also sponsors “think tanks” that obligingly issue alarming reports warning of increasing peril everywhere. Many are run by former diplomats or military commanders. Their scary warnings, which seem realistic given the warners’ personal prestige and the innocent-sounding names of their think tanks, are aimed at persuading Americans and foreign governments to spend more billions of dollars on weaponry.
The ludicrously misnamed United States Institute for Peace, for example, is run by Stephen Hadley, a former national security adviser who also earns hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for his service on the board of Raytheon, a leading arms maker. Another arms maker, Lockheed Martin, which has just sold Poland an air-to-surface missile system and wants to sell more, has given the institute $1 million.

How American Media Serves as a Transmission Belt for Wars of Choice
Several weeks ago the mainstream media (MSM) gave saturation coverage to a picture of a little boy pulled from the rubble of Aleppo after his home and family were crushed in what was dubiously reported as a Russian airstrike. Promptly dubbed “Aleppo Boy,” his dusty image immediately went viral in every prestige outlet in the United States and Europe. The underlying message: we—the “international community,” “the Free World,” the United States, you and I—must “do something” top stop Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his main backer and fellow Hitler clone Vladimir Putin.
Not long before, another little boy, also in the area of Aleppo, was beheaded on video by the “moderate” US-supported jihad terror group Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki. The images of his grisly demise received far less media attention than those of official Aleppo Boy. This other kid received no catchy moniker. No one called for anyone in power to “do something.” In fact, western support for the al-Zenki jihadists—which the Obama administration refused to disavow even after the beheading and allegations of chlorine gas use by al-Zenki—can itself be seen as part of “doing something” about the evil, evil Assad.
Another small detail readily available in “alternative media” but almost invisible in the MSM: Mahmoud Raslan, the photographer who took the picture of Aleppo Boy and disseminated it to world acclaim, also took a smiling selfie with the beaming al-Zenki beheaders of the other kid. But, hey, says Raslan, I barely know those guys. Now let’s move on . . .

EXCLUSIVE: The REAL Syria Civil Defence Expose Nato’s ‘White Helmets’ as Terrorist-Linked Imposters
“I am a director not only of a Syrian Civil Defence Unit, but of brave human beings, volunteers who risk their lives, despite the terrorism that is invading Syria, to maintain security for Syria. I give thanks from my heart for the courage of my men who have lost their comrades in terrorist attacks but they keep working despite the risks. They are true soldiers, their equipment and their spirit are their only weapons”
~ Director of Tartous’ REAL Syria Civil Defence
Did I hear a pin drop? The real Syria Civil Defence? Are the west’s iconized ‘White Helmets’ not the only emergency first-responders inside Syria?
For the REAL Syria Civil Defence you call 113 inside Syria. There is no public number for the White Helmets. Why not? Why does this multi-million dollar US & NATO state-funded first repsonder ‘NGO,’ with state of the art equipment supplied by the US and the EU via Turkey, have no central number for civilians to call when the “bombs fall”?
Before we introduce the real Syria Civil Defence, who are Syria’s real ICDO certified civil fire and rescue organisation, let’s first take a closer look at the imposters; terrorists in white hats, and agents of war – NATO’s pseudo ‘NGO’ construct, embedded exclusively in terrorist-held parts of Syria…
We’re told that the White Helmets routinely scale the walls of collapsed buildings and scrambling over smouldering rubble of bombed out buildings to dig a child out with their bare hands. Of course, never without a sizeable camera crew and mobile phone carrying entourage in tow.....

Propaganda spin cycle: 'Syrian Observatory for Human Rights' is funded by US and UK governments
For 5 years, bloody mayhem has been going on in Syria, and in all that time only independent media has picked up on the really obvious flaw in the official narrative about the "Syrian civil war" ...
Officially, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) is a UK-based organization providing data to the Western press about troop movements, government policy and public sentiment in Syria. The Western press then reprints the information they are given - no questions asked:
What Western media editors conceal from the public however, is that the "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" is neither based in Syria nor is it an observer of what actually goes on there. It is essentially one man - Abdul Rahman, aka Rami Abdulrahman, aka Osama Suleiman - a three-term convicted criminal in Syria, based out of a small house in Coventry, England, and his 'team of four activists in Syria'.
Apparently all it takes to inform the entire Western media about everything that is happening on the ground in Syria is four people. Four people could, theoretically, provide reasonably objective reports, but only if they were open to receiving information from many sources, including ones supportive of the Syrian government. They might even be able to produce - using objective discernment - reliable statistics of casualties, refugees and terrorists/rebels. But SOHR has consistently reported the 'civil war' from only the perspective of the so-called 'rebels', discounting Syrian government reports out of hand, as well as reports from civilians that reveal rebels' crimes. ....

US Drone Destroys Car in Eastern Yemen, Killing Three ‘Suspects’
Car Was Traveling in the Maarib Province
The third drone strike in Yemen reported just this week, officials with the pro-Saudi faction in Yemen are saying that a US drone attacked and destroyed a car traveling in the Maarib Province, claiming three “suspected al-Qaeda fighters” were killed.
As usual, none of the people killed in the attack were named, and the US offered no statement of their own backing up the assessment that those slain were members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). All too often, this remains the case, with victims never identified publicly at all.
“Signature strikes,” in which US drones attack people simply because they look from the drone’s view like they’re doing something like AQAP would do, has killed a large number of people with no definitive connection to terror. This often can be as simple as several cars driving in the same general vicinity on a usually sparsely traveled road being assumed to be a “convoy.”....

Sex Abuse, Bullying Probe Roils Merchant Marine Academy
The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is in turmoil over sexual abuse and bullying concerns that have led to the temporary shutdown of its premier training program -- one that sends cadets out on working vessels for a year at sea.
Some parents, alumni and maritime unions contend the decision to halt the program while such allegations are investigated was made hastily and without solid evidence of abuse. And they say it deprives cadets of the most valuable part of their education, actually toiling on container ships, oil tankers, passenger liners and barges.
But administrators of the 900-student, taxpayer-financed service academy aren't shrinking from criticism. They say a full review is underway, but it could be months before the program, called Sea Year, resumes in earnest.
"The balance here is between sailing on commercial vessels for the training value and the environment and the threats that they face," said Rear Adm. James Helis, the academy's superintendent. "To me, it's not a close call."
Government sex abuse surveys, interviews with midshipmen returning from Sea Year and feedback from faculty fueled Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx's decision last June to order the stand-down, Helis said.
"It isn't a particular number, a particular survey that led to this decision," Helis said. "It's been the accumulation of evidence from different sources, from different views taken at the academy that all led us to the same conclusion: That we had a significant challenge with the climate at sea. And not just with sexual assault, sexual harassment, but bullying, hazing, coercion and retaliation."
One graduate, Erika Lawson, told The Washington Post she was groped by a chief mate in the back seat of a taxi in Saipan during her Sea Year in 2012. Lawson said it took her more than a year to tell school authorities she had a bad experience. She said there was no investigation.....

Perplexed global public opinion holds its breath at the (circus) best American “democracy” is able to conjure.
The first cage match this coming Monday between a Queen of War profiting from a mighty (Clinton) Cash Machine and a billionaire uber-narcissist adored by a “basket of deplorables”.
For the basket of deplorables, and even beyond their circle, the temptation is immense to equate voting for Donald Trump with raising a finger against the establishment.
Ultra-savvy at playing mainstream media for invaluable free publicity, elevating Outrageousness to an art form and being impervious to irony and derision, Trump has been a master at tapping wave after wave of anger against the new liberal elite — including a nomenklatura of crypto-intellectual Ivy league-educated “experts” who could not give a damn about understanding the (real world) consequences of United States Government (USG) policies. The anger is manifested by declassified blue collars, the unemployed, the functionally illiterate, white trash. Whatever you call them, they are the excluded form the Neoliberal Banquet, not only economically but also culturally. But this being Trump, a master of self-promotion, the battle is more like Ego against The Establishment...
Assange talks to GoingUnderground
From ZeroHedge (Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com)
In numerous articles over the past several years
I have made observations on a rule of life that I strictly adhere to: that all social conflicts can be boiled down to the reality of two opposing groups — those people who want to control the lives of others, and those people who simply want to be left alone. You can read more about my philosophy on this in an article I published in 2014 titled 'Why Is Independence So Frightening To Some People?'
The mainstream media and establishment institutions focused on propaganda will tell you that there are hundreds or thousands of dangerous cultural enclaves and ideologies out there that you should fear. They will tell tales of rage and suspicion between the rich and the poor, haves and have-nots, whites and blacks, gays and straights, academics and working class, believers and atheists, Muslims and Christians, Republicans and Democrats, Eastern nations and Western nations, etc. The establishment relies on these divisions as a rationale for the homogenization of cultures — they argue that if we erase borders, religion and sovereignty while enforcing multiculturalism and wealth redistribution, then these groups will have no reason to fight anymore and a Utopian fever orgy will be our inevitable reward. Yes, it sounds quite magical.......
That said, I don’t hold any claims against any of these groups per se, as long as they respect my inherent and individual freedoms. If they are determined to impose their ideology on me through force, that is another matter entirely.
This is the only paradigm that actually matters in the end. All other paradigms are a means for the powers that be to pit the masses against each other. When you look at the world in this way, it is easier to let go of all the “sacred cows” and learned biases that blind us to the truth.....
...If you really want to know who we “deplorables” are it’s rather simple — we are the ones who refuse to participate in the operation of the machine. We are the cogs who refuse to cooperate. We will not grease the gears. We will not stoke the furnace. We will stop the whole damn thing in it’s tracks, because, for the sake of future generations, we must.....

Obama is Protecting the Terrorists,
America to the Rescue of ISIS-ISIL-Daesh. Testimonies of Syrian Soldiers Who Witnessed the US Airstrikes
....The testimonies confirm the unspoken truth:
OBAMA IS PROTECTING THE TERRORISTS
- We [Syrian soldiers] first thought the aircraft are support to us after the first 2 shots, but we quickly found out that they are targeting our forces aggressively, while we were fighting IS terrorists. The aircraft used cluster bombs against us.
- A day before the airstrikes, the [US] drones were flying and scanning all the area
- The US air-strikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.
- IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing
- US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces?
- It for sure wasn’t a mistake, they targeted us intentionally to help IS.
- America is ISIS itself
Translation from Arabic (H. E)
The US Air strikes were deliberate, they were carefully planned and coordinated with ISIS-Daesh commandos on the ground.
The bombings enabled the ISIS-Daesh Islamic State mercenaries to wage an effective counterattack against Syrian government forces.

Samantha Power loses it,
walks out of UN meeting on US airstrike against Syrian soldiers
Yet again, US' 'diplomacy' threatens to further destabilize the Middle East. After NATO murdered Syrian soldiers in broad daylight - an act of war against Syria and, arguably, against Russia - by conducting airstrikes on behalf of ISIS, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power had the gall to walk out of a emergency UN Security Council meeting on the matter. Instead of responding sanely to Russia's request for information, Powers completely side-stepped the issue and, delusional as ever, demanded that Russia pressure Syria to 'push for peace'. Stunned, her Russian counterpart Vitaly Churkin called her walk-out an act of 'unprecedented contempt.'
Churkin went on to say: "What I saw today, unfortunately, was very concerning, as my American colleague Samantha Power behaved very strangely to say the least." It's obvious that things are bad when even seasoned diplomats like Churkin are compelled to comment on the strange behavior of their colleagues. But then, again, Power herself is a unique type of crazy. The 'asthenic' psychopath as described by Lobaczewski is relevant here.....
Sergei Filatov translated by Julia Rakhmetova at RussiaInsider
Two powerful groups of the American establishment are fighting for their future. One of them can be figuratively called “patriots and isolationists”, the other one – “Trotskyists and globalists”.
The first group is interested in saving America from the financial and economic crisis by focusing on ways and means of solving US domestic problems. The second one is interested in doing the same, but by reducing the rest of the world to chaos,attracting funds to Wall Street from areas of instability and war. The fight for the future of American policy is illustrated by the presidential candidates: the first by Donald Trump, the second, by Hillary Clinton.
The strike on Syrian Army positions by the American aviation near Deir ez-Zor on Saturday is not only an act of unprovoked aggression, but a direct breach of the agreement recently concluded through difficult Russian-American talks on Syria. The way this agreement was finally concluded on the part of Americans; the way Secretary of State John Kerry insisted on classifying it; the way Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned: “We can’t make these documents available to the public. They contain serious sensitive information. for those who would try to ruin its implementation thwarting humanitarian assistance and other provisions,” – all that signals real disorder in the American leadership.
Obama seems to be dropping the reins of control of his military, allowing them to violate their government’s commitments with a bomb strike, right after the Secretary of State signed the agreement.
It’s a high stakes game in the US, and the defeated side will be eliminated....
US Special Forces sabotage White House policy gone disastrously wrong
with covert ops in Syria
“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘Fuck this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias. “Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they know they are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘Fuck it, who cares?’”
“I don’t want to be responsible for Nusra guys saying they were trained by Americans,” the Green Beret added. A second Special Forces soldier commented that one Syrian militia they had trained recently crossed the border from Jordan on what had been pitched as a large-scale shaping operation that would change the course of the war.

The spin on this story about the Spanish woman Tania Head aka Alicia Esteve Head is all about making it look like the woman was the only one to blame for not only conning people around her, vulnerable folks who had lost loved ones, but also conning major government officers. The blame for accepting her story as gospel truth lies with not only the journalists who never bothered to ask her "fiance's" last name nor did they check on why she told some folks she had lost her "husband" and some others that it was a "fiance" who died on 9/11. Moreover, isn't it amazing that nobody from any of the offices of any of the three biggies of New York State - Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Governor George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, cared to check into her background but took her at face value. This is how gullible government officers are and with the right kind of incentives (bribes) or the right kind of Oscar-winning acting by conmen/women, these idiots can be completely taken in.
It is all the more appalling that such people can be so easily fooled. Imagine how much damage can be done by those
who are intentionally getting close to such decision makers in the government and spinning some tall tales that the law-makers swallow hook, line and sinker.
Think about it folks, take this con by this lone woman of some of New York State's top officers and then ask yourself: If these politicians who are deemed to be capable and savvy enough to be placed in such high offices, if they could be so easily fooled, what other areas of deception are they under now at present or have been in the past, areas which are not yet divulged as "deception" areas? Rudy Giuliani for sure was not only a fool where the Spanish woman is concerned, he was tricked into removing all
evidence of 9/11 post haste. What a deplorable state of affairs the Empire is going through! Death will be a relief for it and to the rest of the world.

Tania Head: The ultimate betrayal of 9/11
ON THE morning of September 11 2001, Tania Head was in the south tower of the World Trade Centre, on the 78th floor, where the second plane hit.
She saw the plane so close, she could feel the air being sucked out of her lungs.
When the plane plunged into the 78th floor, by some miracle she survived the impact, but her body was burning from the explosion of flames, her right arm severed, hanging by a thread. She was thrown across the room and passed out.
Waking up, she crawled through the carnage. Her life on the line, she was handed a wedding ring by a man who would never make it down. He asked her to take it and give it to his wife.
Eventually, she spotted a man in a red bandanna, Welles Crowther, who would later become a hero of the 9/11 attacks, giving up his life to lead 12 others to safety. He stretched out his hand and helped her to safety, only to disappear back into the plume of smoke.
She made it down the 78 flights of stairs just in time. When the Towers collapsed around her, she was thrown under a rig.
Six days later, she woke up in a hospital burns unit, a Jane Doe, only to later discover her husband, Dave, had been killed in the north tower.
It was a tale of devastation, of loss, but of ultimate survival.....

Timing & other aspects of US strike on Syrian army suggest intentional provocation – Churkin
The US’ sudden attempt to “help” the Syrian army fighting ISIS in the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, which resulted in a strike that killed and injured dozens of soldiers, does not look like an honest mistake, Russia’s UN envoy told journalists at the UNSC meeting.
“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.
Churkin questioned why the US suddenly chose to “help” the Syrian army defend Deir ez-Zor after all these years, recalling how American forces just observed terrorists’ movements and did “nothing when ISIS advanced on Palmyra.”
“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.
Israeli Lawmaker Slams Defense Minister for Supporting al-Nusra Front Terrorists
Akram Hasson, a member of the Israeli parliament, criticized on Monday the country's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman for what he described as support for Jabhat Fatah al Sham (previously known as al-Nusra Front, outlawed in Russia) terrorist group in Syria in clashes on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
On Saturday, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) shelled the positions of Syrian artillery in the Golan Heights in response to a projectile allegedly fired by the Syrian army against the insurgents.
This new strategy led by Lieberman since he took office has strengthened the Nusra Front and it’s raising its head to attack our brothers," Hasson said, as quoted by the Haaretz newspaper.
According to Hasson, strikes launched by the IAF against Damascus positions benefited the terror group that advanced near the village of Khadr, inhabited by the Druze ethnic and religious minority. "The Nusra Front is operating with unprecedented support from Israel, because the organization’s fighters are advancing in those places where the Israel Defense Forces had previously bombed Syrian positions and the organization is holding those positions, in addition to the logistical and medical assistance it’s getting from Israel," Hasson added, citing local authorities of the village.....

...US special forces soldiers were reportedly forced to flee a town in northern Syria after Free Syrian Army fighters threatened to "slaughter" them for their "invasion", according to videos and reports posted on social media on Friday.
The US soldiers were working with Turkish forces as they advanced on al-Rai, Aleppo, in preparation for an offensive against nearby al-Bab, which is controlled by the Islamic State group.
The FSA is allied with Turkish forces and ostensibly supported by the US as a "moderate" rebel group fighting against the government of Bashar al-Assad.
However, Friday's confrontation highlights the complex nature of the war in Syria.
In the video, fighters from the FSA chant that US forces are "pigs", "crusaders" and "infidels".
"Dogs, agents of America," one man can be heard to say in Arabic, while others chant "They are crusaders and infidels", "Down with America", "'Get out you pigs" and "They are coming to Syria to occupy it".
A voice on a megaphone can be heard to say there will be a "slaughter". The US forces were reportedly forced to leave the town after the protests....

U.K. Parliament report details how NATO’s 2011 war in Libya was based on lies
British investigation: Gaddafi was not going to massacre civilians; Western bombing made Islamist extremism worse
A new report by the British Parliament shows that the 2011 NATO war in Libya was based on an array of lies.
“Libya: Examination of intervention and collapse and the UK’s future policy options,” an investigation by the House of Commons’ bipartisan Foreign Affairs Committee, strongly condemns the U.K.’s role in the war, which toppled the government of Libya’s leader Muammar Qaddafi and plunged the North African country into chaos.
“We have seen no evidence that the UK Government carried out a proper analysis of the nature of the rebellion in Libya,” the report states. “UK strategy was founded on erroneous assumptions and an incomplete understanding of the evidence.”
The Foreign Affairs Committee concludes that the British government “failed to identify that the threat to civilians was overstated and that the rebels included a significant Islamist element.”
The Libya inquiry, which was launched in July 2015, is based on more than a year of research and interviews with politicians, academics, journalists and more. The report, which was released on Sept. 14, reveals the following:
Qaddafi was not planning to massacre civilians. This myth was exaggerated by rebels and Western governments, which based their intervention on little intelligence.
The threat of Islamist extremists, which had a large influence in the uprising, was ignored — and the NATO bombing made this threat even worse, giving ISIS a base in North Africa.
France, which initiated the military intervention, was motivated by economic and political interests, not humanitarian ones.
The uprising — which was violent, not peaceful — would likely not have been successful were it not for foreign military intervention and aid. Foreign media outlets, particularly Qatar’s Al Jazeera and Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya, also spread unsubstantiated rumors about Qaddafi and the Libyan government.
The NATO bombing plunged Libya into a humanitarian disaster, killing thousands of people and displacing hundreds of thousands more, transforming Libya from the African country with the highest standard of living into a war-torn failed state........

The emails, released by the hacking group DCLeaks,
show Powell discussing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial speech before a joint meeting of Congress with his business partner, Jeffrey Leeds.
Leeds summarizes Netanyahu as having “said all the right things about the president and all the things he has done to help Israel. But basically [he] said this deal sucks, and the implication is that you have to be an idiot not to see it.”
Powell responded that U.S. negotiators can’t get everything they want from a deal. But echoing a point that many Iran hawks have questioned, Powell said that Israel’s nuclear arsenal and rational self-interest make the construction and testing of an Iranian nuclear weapon a highly unlikely policy choice for Iran’s leaders.
Negotiators can’t get what he wants. Anyway, Iranians can’t use one if they finally make one. The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands. As Akmdinijad (sic) [said], “What would we do with one, polish it?” I have spoken publicly about both nK and Iran. We’ll blow up the only thing they care about—regime survival. Where, how would they even test one?
Israel, which isn’t a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has long maintained ambiguity about the size, and even the existence, of its nuclear weapons program.
Later in the email chain, Powell acknowledged Iran’s right to enrich uranium for nuclear power, said that sanctions alone wouldn’t be enough to “break” Iran, and pointed out that the assessment that Iran could make a dash for the bomb and construct a nuclear weapon within a year was exaggerated.....

Nuclear Hypocrisy- Exposing Shoddy Monopoly Media Analysis And Disinformation
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) conducted another nuclear test on Friday, 9 September.
President Barack Obama stated:
To be clear, the United States does not, and never will, accept North Korea as a nuclear state... Today's nuclear test, a flagrant violation of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, makes clear North Korea's disregard for international norms and standards for behavior and demonstrates it has no interest in being a responsible member of the international community.
With Obama's statement in mind, consider the answer to these relevant questions:
Has the DPRK attacked another country? Can the same be said about the Republic of Korea (ROK)?
Does every member of the United Nations not have the right to self defense under article 51 of the United Nations Charter?
Does the US refrain from attacking other countries?
Did the aggressions launched against Iraq, Libya, and Syria show a regard for international norms and standards?
Has the US genuinely demonstrated an interested in being a responsible member of the international community?
Has the US adhered to article VI of the NPT – a binding commitment for disarmament by the nuclear-weapon states?
Would Iraq, Libya, and Syria have been attacked if they had been nuclear-weapon states?....

...Arab leaders echoed the warnings of U.S. Secretary of State Marshall and Secretary of Defense Forrestal. "In a speech at the General Assembly Hall at Flushing Meadow, New York, on Friday, 28 November 1947, Iraq’s Foreign Minister, Fadel Jamall, included the following statement: "Partition imposed against the will of the majority of the people will jeopardize peace and harmony in the Middle East. Not only the uprising of the Arabs of Palestine is to be expected, but the masses in the Arab world cannot be restrained. The Arab-Jewish relationship in the Arab world will greatly deteriorate. There are more Jews in the Arab world outside of Palestine than there are in Palestine. In Iraq alone, we have about one hundred and fifty thousand Jews who share with Moslems and Christians all the advantages of political and economic rights. Harmony prevails among Moslems, Christians and Jews. But any injustice imposed upon the Arabs of Palestine will disturb the harmony among Jews and non-Jews in Iraq; it will breed inter-religious prejudice and hatred."
Britain didn't vote for the religious partition because it directly contradicted their promise of a non-sectarian democracy for the people of Palestine. But they didn't vote against it either. They abstained. They didn't want to oppose the powerful backers of the religious partition.......
... How could anyone think that importing armed, staunch segregationist Jewish supremacists into Palestine, and having them at gunpoint drive out massive numbers of unarmed Muslims, BECAUSE THEY'RE MUSLIMS rather than Jews, while being surrounded by a sea of Muslims, would create a safe haven for Jews? It would be more rational to expect exactly the conflict predicted by the majority of Jews in Western Europe and America, who initially opposed the establishment of Israel partly for exactly that reason. They were correct in those predictions, and that predicted conflict has existed continuously ever since.
Bankers are well-known for their rationality, especially about money. And wars have been very profitable for bankers over hundreds of years. They discovered they could make money from both sides of a war. War is also highly profitable for corporations in which the bankers own interests. By one rough estimate, more is consumed in a day of war than a year of peace. All the expensive ammunition and weapon stockpiles need to be replenished. And all the destroyed infrastructure needs to be rebuilt....

How US Hardliners Help Iran’s Hardliners
The unrelenting urge among American politicians to keep punishing Iran — or more precisely, to be seen supporting steps with that objective — continues to work against sensible statecraft and U.S. interests in multiple respects. One of those respects concerns how measures taken by the United States affect political competition within Iran.
Here’s the current background to questions of U.S. policy toward Iran. The most important development in recent years regarding such policy — the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name for the agreement that limits Iran’s nuclear activity — has been in effect for over a year. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, which does the detailed monitoring of the Iranian program, Iran is fully in compliance with its obligations under the agreement.
Those in the United States who have opposed any agreement with Iran all along continue to seek any possible basis for accusing Iran of violations. One of the most recent such accusations concerned some issues of implementation that opponents described as “secret exceptions” granted to Iran. They were in fact not that but rather were typical of the detailed questions that inevitably arise in implementation of any agreement this extensive.....

Here’s Why The Polls Don’t Show Gary Johnson Averaging 15% Nationally Yet
As the saying goes; there’s lies, damn lies, and statistics. That should really be amended to include polling along with statistics. The way that pollsters determine samples and structure their questions has more of an effect on a poll’s results than almost any other factor. A perfect example of which is the current polling of the Presidential race now that Gary Johnson is being included in the polls. In particular, two recent polls from CNN and FOX News stand out as particularly dishonest. It’s no surprise that these two polls have shown Gary Johnson polling lower than the fifteen percent threshold required for admission into the Presidential debates.
In fact, it’s likely that the changes to these two polls were designed to keep Gary Johnson below that threshold. For example, the Governor is currently polling highest with millennials – those aged 18 – 34. In most polls Johnson shows up in the high twenties and low thirties. In certain polls he has come in second place and within striking distance of Hillary Clinton. .........

Is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it could?” (Bob Dylan, b 1941, Masters of War.)
On Tuesday 6th of September, twenty-four hour monitoring by Yemen’s Legal Centre for Rights and Development (LCRD) recorded the bombings by the Saudi led “coalition”, armed by the US and UK and advised by their military specialists, thus collusion and co-operation of both countries render them equally culpable for the carnage.
Yemen has a population of just 24.41 million (2013 figure) and according to the Rural Poverty Portal:
“ … is one of the driest, poorest and least developed countries in the world. It ranks 140 out of 182 countries on the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Index (2009). An estimated 42 percent of the people are poor, and one Yemeni in five is malnourished. Poverty is endemic, particularly in more remote and less accessible areas.”

On September 11, 2001,
one of the most tragic events in recent American history took place. Close to 3,000 civilians lost their lives in horrific terror attacks that took place on American soil. Fifteen years later, it is time to ask the question: have our counterterror efforts helped to reduce the amount of terrorism in the world? Or at the very least, have they tried to make the world safer?
According to a report released by Dr. Neta Crawford, professor of political science at Brown University, spending by the United States Departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Veteran Affairs since 9/11 is now close to $5 trillion USD. Before we have the chance to ask how a country that has racked up over $19.3 trillion USD in debt can spend $5 trillion USD on war, the focus of this article is to ask: What has all of this spending achieved?
As Reader Supported News reported at the end of last year, terrorism has increased 6,500 percent since 2002 (they probably should rename it “the war of terror”). In 2014, the outlet noted, it was reported that 74 percent of all terror-related casualties occurred in Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, or Syria. As stated by Paul Gottinger, a staff reporter for Reader Supported News, out of the aforementioned countries, “only Nigeria did not experience either U.S. air strikes or a military occupation in that year.”....

Getting Fooled on Iraq, Libya, Now Russia
A British parliamentary inquiry into the Libyan fiasco has reported what should have been apparent from the start in 2011 – and was to some of us – that the West’s military intervention to “protect” civilians in Benghazi was a cover for what became another disastrous “regime change” operation.
The report from the U.K.’s Foreign Affairs Committee confirms that the U.S. and other Western governments exaggerated the human rights threat posed by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and then quickly morphed the “humanitarian” mission into a military invasion that overthrew and killed Gaddafi, leaving behind political and social chaos.
The report’s significance is that it shows how little was learned from the Iraq War fiasco in which George W. Bush’s administration hyped and falsified intelligence to justify invading Iraq and killing its leader, Saddam Hussein. In both cases, U.K. leaders tagged along and the West’s mainstream news media mostly served as unprofessional propaganda conduits, not as diligent watchdogs for the public......

North Dakota police have issued an arrest warrant for the Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, who has been reporting on the Native American protests against an oil pipeline, accusing her of entering “private property” to conduct interviews.
The charges have raised concerns about possible free speech violations and press intimidation, since the Morton county sheriff’s office accused the award-winning broadcast journalist after Democracy Now! filmed security guards working for the Dakota access pipeline using dogs and pepper spray on protesters.
“This is an unacceptable violation of freedom of the press,” Goodman said in a statement after police accused her of criminal trespass, a misdemeanor offense....

Reckless Security Firm Hired to Protect Dakota Pipeline Company Has Dark Past in Palestine
When the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe mobilized thousands to protect their land and water in Cannon Ball, North Dakota from a proposed $3.8 billion crude-oil pipeline, they were met with national guard deployments, police crackdowns, an FBI investigation and private security forces that attacked them with dogs. A key firm hired during this time to provide security for the pipeline company, Dakota Access LLC, is the British multinational G4S—one of the largest private security corporations in the world targeted by a years-long global boycott campaign for profiting from the inhumane treatment of Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including the torture of children.
G4S announced in March that it plans to halt all of its business with Israel in the next 12 to 24 months, in what was hailed as a significant human rights victory, with international campaigners vowing to hold the company to its word. However, the corporation’s role in protecting the Dakota access pipeline indicates that G4S is profiting from a different colonial context, this time in North Dakota's Indian country....
In an interview with AlterNet, G4S communications director Monica Lewman-Garcia confirmed that the company provided private security for the Dakota Access Pipeline for a two-week period, starting August 24. Lewman-Garcia claimed that the company “had no employees present during the incident on September 3” when protesters were attacked with dogs. However, she repeatedly declined to identify where the G4S employees were located during the contract, merely stating that they were dispatched to “remote locations” and "did not come into contact with protesters."....

How Did Michael Strange Really Die in Afghanistan?
After Northeast Philly’s Michael Strange was killed in Afghanistan in 2011, his father, Charles Strange, went on a quest for answers. It’s a journey that’s brought him face-to-face with Congress, the military bureaucracy, the NSA, a lawyer who believes Barack Obama is a Muslim, and the very dark heart of America in 2014........
.......Over the past three years, they’ve been pressing journalists and politicians to investigate the nighttime raid into Taliban territory that killed 30 Americans, including Michael, and eight Afghans on August 6, 2011. It was the largest loss of American life in a single incident in the War in Afghanistan. Of the American dead, 22 were soldiers in elite Special Operations units; 17 were Navy SEALs, including members of SEAL Team Six, the same unit that had killed Osama bin Laden 96 days before that. Michael was a Navy cryptologist who worked with the SEALs. They were all crammed inside a low-flying Chinook helicopter when a rocket-propelled grenade flew up from below and destroyed it.
The military later told Charlie and Mary and the other families that it was a lucky shot. Charlie doesn’t believe this. “I just want to know what happened, so it doesn’t happen to somebody else’s son or daughter.” On national talk radio, Charlie has blasted the military and the Obama administration, and he has met with sympathetic legislators, raising questions about the official account of the raid. He has publicly criticized and even sued the government at a time when Americans trust the government less and less. And he has been effective: Today, thanks in part to his efforts, Congress will hold a hearing on his son’s mission, and military staff will answer questions under oath.
As the Stranges draw closer to D.C., traffic thickens, and they start to worry about time. They’re stressed and tired. Charlie only slept for two hours last night, he says, which is normal these days. He took a long walk in the freezing cold, then a warm shower. Mary got 45 minutes of sleep. Now her phone rings.

9/11 Conspiracy Solved
Was 9/11 really an inside job? According to the author, after reviewing this documentary and checking the evidence the answer will be clear to you. This video is a compilation of evidence uncovered by Michael C. Ruppert, Mark H. Gaffney, and Kevin Ryan.
In September 1991, shortly after the end of the Cold War, a cabal of elite bankers and intelligent spooks led by George H. W. Bush, financed a $240 billion covert operation, through the purchase of 10 year securities, that as it happened were scheduled to come due on September 12th 2001.
"Project Hammer" was undoubtedly used for a wide variety of elicit intelligence operations, but mainly was used to finance covert economic operation against the collapsing Soviet Union, where unknown western investors bought much of the Soviet industry with a focus on oil and gas, crashing the Russian economy, looting its central bank, orchestrating what became known as the "Great Rubel Scam", and wide variety of other clandestine, state assisted operations designed to thoroughly prevent Russia from ever contesting the United States as a world super power.

U.S.-led jets kill dozens of Syrian soldiers: Russia, monitor
U.S.-led coalition jets bombed a Syrian army position at Jebel Tharda near Deir al-Zor airport on Saturday, killing dozens of Syrian soldiers, Russia and a war monitor said, paving the way for Islamic State to briefly overrun it.
The U.S. military, in an apparent admission that it may have hit the position, said in a statement that coalition air strikes near Deir al-Zor had been halted when Russia told coalition officials they may have hit the Syrian army.
Syria's army general command said in a statement that the air strike was "conclusive evidence" of U.S. support for Islamic State, noting that the strike was "dangerous and blatant aggression".
Islamic State said in a statement on its Amaq news channel that it had gained "complete control" over Jebel Tharda but both Syrian state television and Russian state media said the positions lost to the militant group were later recaptured.
The defense ministry in Russia, which has been aiding Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war, said U.S. jets had killed more than 60 Syrian soldiers in four air strikes by two F-16s and two A-10s coming from the direction of Iraq. .........

Episode 311 – 9/11 Suspects
If there were some crusading District Attorney who actually wanted to prosecute the crimes of 9/11, how would he begin? Where would he start to unravel a plot so immense, one involving so many layers of obfuscation and the active collusion of some of the most powerful members of the perennial ruling class of America, the deep state?....
Welcome, my friends, welcome to Episode 311 of The Corbett Report podcast, “9/11 Suspects,” which is being released on September 11, 2016. I am your host James Corbett of corbettreport.com.
9/11 was a crime. This should not be a controversial statement, but given how 9/11 was framed as a terrorist attack or even an “act of war” from the very moment that it occurred, it somehow is. If we lived in a world of truth and justice, 9/11 would have been approached as a crime to be solved rather than an attack to be responded to. Unfortunately we don’t live in such a world, but let’s imagine for a moment that we did. If there were some crusading District Attorney who actually wanted to prosecute the crimes of 9/11, how would he begin? Where would he start to unravel a plot so immense, one involving so many layers of obfuscation and the active collusion of some of the most powerful members of the perennial ruling class of America, the deep state?...
Like the prosecution of a mafia kingpin, it is highly unlikely that a prosecutor would put the suspected mastermind of the plot on trial first. Such a vast and intricate operation would be picked apart from the outside, starting with people on the periphery of the plot who could be forced to testify under oath and who could provide leads further up the ladder. As more and more of the picture is filled in, the case against the inner clique who ran the operation would begin to strengthen, and gradually more and more central figures could be brought to trial.
As I say, if the events of the last 15 years have taught us anything it is that we do not live in such a world. But still, we are trying the crimes of 9/11 in the court of public opinion and there are still untold millions who think of 9/11 truth as a fringe movement driven by rash speculation and unwarranted leaps of logic. What if we “prosecuted” some of these peripheral figures, the ones who are demonstrably and provably involved in the events of that day or the cover up of those crimes, in that court of public opinion?...
....RUDY GIULIANI: “… and we selected Pier 92 as our Command Center. The reason Pier 92 was selected as the Command Center was because on the next day, on September 12th, Pier 92 was going to have a drill. It had hundreds of people here from FEMA, from the Federal Government, from the State Emergency Management Office and they were getting ready for a drill for a bio-chemical attack. So that was going to be the place they were going to have the drill, the equipment was already there. So we were able to establish a Command Center there within 3 days that was 2 and a half to 3 times bigger than the Command Center that we had lost at 7 World Trade Center and it was from there that the rest of the search and rescue effort was completed.”....
