The Secret Jewish History of 'Star Wars'

This new episode boasts several firsts. It’s the first “Star Wars” in over a decade, and the first to be produced since Disney took over the series from 20th Century Fox. It’s the first film in the series to be directed by J.J. Abrams – the self-described “most nebbishy Jewish director, ever” - who is widely credited with reinvigorating the film series of “Star Trek,” the brainier cousin to “Star Wars.”
Note: I am at a lost to understand why these people can never be just ordinary human beings like me.

Soros aided CIA operations in Balkans and Moldova region

A former Central Intelligence Agency clandestine service officer revealed to WMR that the CIA worked closely with George Soros-financed non-governmental organizations in the former Yugoslavia to ensure the power of Serbians was limited and the influence of Muslims, some with ties to global jihadism and organized crime, was advanced.

The CIA cooperated with Soros operatives in Banja Luka, the capital of the Srpska Republic, now a constituent part of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTABLE AS PRESIDENT, BUT…

Sometimes I wonder why anyone bothers to run for office in a long, costly, and exhausting contest which if won means four years of taking directions from the Pentagon and seventeen security agencies. America is not a democracy, and the last president who actually tried to exert some significant influence on affairs left much of the right side of his head in the streets of Dallas. But ego is a mighty powerful motivator, and the gang engaged in national American politics has plenty of it, even if few other redeeming qualities.

An increasing number of asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo are returning to their countries, saying that they had expected better care and a shorter asylum process in Austria.

Figures from the Interior Ministry show that between January and November this year over 1,100 Kosovans left Austria voluntarily. Kosovo is considered to be a safe country of origin and migrants have little chance of obtaining asylum in Austria.

Justice Ginsburg's Ominous Warning About Creeping Corporate Power

If you’re a business looking for new ways to squeeze money out of your consumers without having to worry about whether doing so is illegal, than you had a very good day in the Supreme Court on Monday. In its first divided decision of the current Supreme Court term, the Court held in DIRECTV v. Imburgia that the satellite television company DIRECTV could effectively immunize itself from many suits claiming that they charged illegal fees, despite the fact that this decision cuts against language in DIRECTV’s own contract. Only three justices, the conservative Clarence Thomas and the liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, dissented.

Maryland officers staging in Baltimore ahead of verdict in Freddie Gray case, police confirm

Police officers from neighboring jurisdictions have begun staging in Baltimore in preparation for unrest that local commanders hope never materializes.

On Tuesday afternoon, Anne Arundel County Police officers were photographed staging in Druid Hill Park with an armored vehicle, helmets and shields by local photographer Devin Allen, who was made famous after one of his images from April's unrest landed on the cover of Time magazine. Allen posted his images on Twitter, where he has about 12,500 followers — including many journalists. A Baltimore Sun reporter who responded to the park also observed dozens of officers and protective gear, though the officers were no longer wearing the gear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Latest word is the jury is deadlocked, but has been sent back to try again by the judge.

Don't Ever Have The Cops Call A Tow Truck For You

If you ever break down and have a highway patrol officer ask if you'd like a tow truck, be sure to say NO! This is because in most states, the tow companies charge double or even triple if the police call for a tow, rather than if the motorist calls themselves. This is basically because when the police call, the tow is 'compulsory' and the person doesn't have a choice, for example in a drunk-driving case or an unlicensed driver. Motorists often don't realize this, and by the time it happens it's too late. I recently had this happen and you won't believe what the cop did when he found out that the tow driver was going to charge me triple for the tow, just because the cop had called. Finally, a good cop story!

Grand Jury Author Proposes Adams County, Idaho Grand Jury For Jack Yantis Killing

Kelly Z. Mordecai, Author of a book on the power of the Grand Jury titled 'The Hidden 4th Branch, a corrupt government's worst nightmare,' has offered a suggestion to the people of Adams County, Idaho where 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis was killed by police last month. Mordecai begins, "From 1770 to today, grand juries have investigated "willful misconduct in office by public officers", issued indictments or “presentments” holding government agents accountable. When a LEGAL grand jury acts upon their full independent power to investigate, and tells a "protecting prosecutor" to "shut-up, sit down, and we will call you when we need you”, there is justice. Examples of accountability include the Rodney King situation, 5 New Orleans Police Dept. officers during Katrina, and in Kentucky (2010), Whitley County Sheriff Lawrence Hodge.

As our country burns to the ground: trapped in a post 9/11 (inside job) never ending war on terror that only benefited Israel; impoverished by an economic collapse engineered by an unprosecuted banking cabal; homeless, penniless, jobless; imprisoned in a high-tech DHS police state, spied upon by space-based and weaponized drones; living in an open air toxic waste pit: vaccinated, GMO’ed, chem-trailed, fracked and Fukushima irradiated, remember this: it all started with the formation of private money trust.

The U.S. military and President Obama refuse to bomb known ISIS targets:

Pilots who have returned from deployments say Obama refuses to permit airstrikes 75 percent of the time against the Islamic State group.

Politically Correct School Bans Huckleberry Finn – the Mark Twain Classic That Critiqued Slavery – for Using the “N” Word

History is being rewritten left and right to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings in this country.

Now a school in Philadelphia recently announced that it was removing Huckleberry Finn, the Mark Twain novel written in 1885 that ranks as one of the all-time great American novels ever, from its classroom curriculum…

Because the book dares, in its historical accuracy, to include use of the “N” word.

Of course, the book is poignantly ahead of its time in its critique of slavery, and depicts a boy who befriends a slave and goes through many difficulties to help him reach freedom…

But the truth stopped mattering a long time ago in America.

When Did People Stop Believing in Freedom?

Almost every college student we asked today said that it is fine to give up their privacy to the government if it will keep them safe, especially from terrorists.

Whether you believe in their ideologies or not, people used to fight for what they believe in with greater conviction in this country. Once upon a time, people actually stood up for their natural rights and protested. Now people are quietly going about their day just hoping to stay off the radar, or worse, they have been taught and actually believe that giving up liberty for a sense of security is a good trade off "to keep them safe" with misguided lines like "I'm not doing anything wrong so I have nothing to worry about."

Report: US Pilots in Syria Ordered to Ignore ISIS Oil Convoys

American officials and responsible western news pundits have had a hard time explaining why the U.S.-led “anti-ISIS” coalition, after more than one year, has been unable to stop ISIS' lucrative oil smuggling operation. Maybe because they were never trying to stop it in the first place? Via New Eastern Outlook:

Reports from pilots and sources up and down the Pentagon chain of command tell an interesting story. Considering America’s years of experience at “precision bombing” and the vast intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of the world’s largest military, America’s utter failure in curtailing ISIS and her dozens of “sister organizations” has been inexplicable.

American pilots flying over Iraq and Syria have quietly leaked their story for over a year now but no news agency will carry it. They say they have flown over oil tanker convoys 4 lanes wide at times and been told to stay silent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, these reports are true, they give credence to the degree which which the White House is supplying "aid and comfort" to an alleged "enemy", ISIS.

Yes, I'm cynical about geopolitics; but sometimes, I just cannot keep up!!

Recep Tayyip Erdo?an: Portrait of a Backstabbing Pasha

He increases his personal power, but undermines the interests of the Turkish nation and its people. Erdo?an believes he is the rising regional hegemon, indispensable to the West. He blackmails the EU for billions of Euros to control the flood of refugees fleeing violence in Syria and Iraq with his promises to warehouse desperate refugees in Turkish concentration camps. But Europeans must know that their money can never buy trust and loyalty from the Pasha.

In Australia, Even Learning About Encryption Will Be Illegal Soon

You might not think that an academic computer science course could be classified as an export of military technology. But under the Defence Trade Controls Act — which passed into law in April, and will come into force next year — there is a real possibility that even seemingly innocuous educational and research activities could fall foul of Australian defence export control laws.

Under these laws, such “supplies of technology” come under a censorship regime involving criminal penalties of up to ten years imprisonment. How could this be?

The story begins with the Australian government’s Defence and Strategic Goods List (DSGL). This list specifies goods considered important to national defence and security, and which are therefore tightly controlled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had the chance to visit Sidney almost a decade ago, and I loved it.

I never, in my wildest dreams, imagined that its government would wind up going so fascistic in this part of the 21st century. Ever.

Obama orders Border Patrol to let illegal immigrants drive drunk

According to Judicial Watch, Border Patrol agents are now being instructed to let illegal immigrants off the hook if they are caught drinking and driving. The Obama Administration has ordered all Border Patrol agents in Arizona to let illegal immigrants free even if they are caught driving under the influence of alcohol.

It's bad enough that the current immigration system encourages immigrants to sneak into the country and become dependent on government programs that tax natural-born citizens further and further. Now the federal government is permitting the illegals to drive around intoxicated without having to abide by the same road laws that natural-born Americans must follow. Border Patrol agents are being instructed to let illegals go free -- no arrests, no fines, no jail time for putting other people's lives at risk on the road.

LA schools closed due to credible ‘threat;’ 640,000 students kept at home

Los Angeles schools were closed “in an abundance of caution” Tuesday after authorities received what was described as a credible terror threat — resulting in more than half a million children being kept home.

It is “important that I take the precaution based on what has happened recently and what has happened in the past,” Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Ramon Cortines said, explaining the move to shutter schools in the light of a heightened concern following recent mass shootings and a terror attack in San Bernardino, California.

Cortines said he wants to see the more than one thousand schools in the district searched “to make sure that it is safe for children and safe for staff to be there on Wednesday.” He also said that while schools get “threats all the time,” the circumstances around this particular one made it a “rare threat,” without further elaborating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cui bono?!? Who benefits from this?!?

I would submit that perhaps those in power, in California and beyond, want the American people psychologically "infected" with the same "learned hopelessness" and fear that was administered to prisoners of war in Abu Ghraib, and today at Gitmo, but on a much more finely-adjusted, gradual scale, without the beatings, waterboardings, or NG tube feedings.

And where are we most vulnerable in our feelings?!?

It's about our kids, who we love like crazy.

Mike and I don't have children of our own, but do have some wonderful children in our extended family we love very much; and we worry about the quality of their future greatly, even though they have a terrific mom and dad.

So now, the message to parents in Los Angeles, and across the country is, you can no longer protect your kids from terror or violence in school. WE can barely manage to do that. The message is, be fearful, and be fearful 24/7, so that the fear absolutely impedes your ability to make sound judgements, and destroys your critical thinking abilities.

That appears to be the desired outcome here.

So what draconian measures will be taken in public schools in LA?!? Will we see armed guards, with guns chambered, installed in every classroom, including kindergarten?!?

Oh yes, THAT is going to contribute to the emotional comfort, and learning capabilities of our kids in public schools!!

But what I have described above may well become the "new normal" for (alleged) public education in this country, after this incident. After all, it's "for the children".

The Curious Case of the Stolen CIA Files

A break-in targeting information about a lawsuit against the CIA is the latest in a string of apparently related thefts, data breaches and armed attacks against human rights workers who are investigating abuses committed during El Salvador’s bloody civil war in the 1980s.

Most recently, an unknown party broke into the office of Angelina Godoy, director of the University of Washington’s Center for Human Rights(CHR), and stole her computer and hard drive. These contained sensitive information and testimony regarding the Center’s ongoing investigations into human rights violations in El Salvador.

The hard drive also contained information about a lawsuit against the CIA that the CHR filed a few weeks before the theft. The suit alleges that the CIA — citing national security reasons — illegally withheld documents from CHR regarding US involvement in the country’s 12-year civil war.

Marco Rubio Pushes to Block Low-Cost, High-Speed Broadband

In a rare senatorial act, full-time Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio joined with a handful of fellow legislators on Friday in an attempt to block local municipalities from undercutting big telecom companies by providing cheap, fast internet service.

Rubio, who is raising campaign cash from the telecom industry for his presidential campaign, fired off a letter to the Federal Communications Commission asking the agency to allow states to block municipal broadband services.

The letter was the latest salvo in a long-running effort by the major telecom companies to outlaw municipal broadband programs that have taken off in cities such as Lafayette, Louisiana, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, because they pose a threat to a business model that calls for slow, expensive internet access without competition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, if we didn't know before, we know what this man thinks about "healthy competition", particularly as it applies to his financial backers, like the telecom companies.

OBAMA TO EXPAND MODERN-DAY SLAVE TRADE WITH TPP

Not long after the White House invited Thailand to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the AP reported the country was relying on slave labor to ship shrimp to the U.S.

And it’s unlikely Thailand’s billion-dollar slave industry would prevent it from joining the TPP considering that Obama previously removed an anti-slavery provision from the TPP and also allowed Vietnam to join the partnership despite its flourishing slave trade.

“For… 16 hours, No. 31 and his wife stood in the factory that owned them with their aching hands in ice water,” the APrevealed. “They ripped the guts, heads, tails and shells off shrimp bound for overseas markets, including grocery stores and all-you-can-eat buffets across the United States.”

“After being sold to the Gig Peeling Factory, they were at the mercy of their Thai bosses, trapped with nearly 100 other Burmese migrants.”

It was only in Oct. that the Obama administration invited Thaland to join the TPP “with open arms.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One cannot possibly escape the painful irony of this country's first African-American President, signing off on a trade bill which turns a blind eye to slavery as being an accomplished fact from some of bill's member nations, like Thailand.

Flint Mayor Declares State Of Emergency Over Water Problems

Flint's mayor has declared a state of emergency due to problems with the city's water system caused by using water from the Flint River, saying the city needs more federal help.
Karen Weaver announced the declaration Monday night and said the move intends to help raise awareness of continuing problems. She said damage to children caused by lead exposure is irreversible and that the city will need to spend more on special education and mental health services as a result.
"I am requesting that all things be done necessary to address this state of emergency declaration, effective immediately," Weaver told City Council.

Flint switched from Detroit's water system last year to Flint River water in a cost-cutting move while under state emergency financial management. The Flint River was supposed to be an interim source until the city could join a new system getting water from Lake Huron.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All those officials who "...maintained the water met safety standards..." while drinking their Perrier should be cooling their collective heels in jail, and not in a "Club Fed", for all the damage they have caused the children in Flint; the damage from lead poisoning is irreversible.

No child is expendable; every child in this country deserves the right to clean, drinkable water that hydrates and doesn't make them ill. Understanding that this is happening in 21st century America just makes me furious.

This incident reminds me of those adverts which urge you to "adopt a kid" n a 3rd world country, where the charity's programs offers education, and nourishing food and water because the water is so terrible that it poisons and infects the kids with parasites who drink it.

Perhaps those same charities should start an advertising campaign featuring the kids from Flint, who are either in danger of lead in their water, or who have already been so damaged by the lead, that they can never lead a normal life, so that the money can go to making sure these American kids have decent, clean water to drink.

And documentary film maker Michael Moore, where are you right now?!? Your former community of Flint needs you desperately right now, to track down just how, precisely, this was allowed to happen to the children of Flint.

In Flint, Mich., there’s so much lead in children’s blood that a state of emergency is declared

According to the World Health Organization, “lead affects children’s brain development resulting in reduced intelligence quotient (IQ), behavioral changes such as shortening of attention span and increased antisocial behavior, and reduced educational attainment. Lead exposure also causes anemia, hypertension, renal impairment, immunotoxicity and toxicity to the reproductive organs. The neurological and behavioral effects of lead are believed to be irreversible.”

RON PAUL: "IF YOU WANT SECURITY, PURSUE LIBERTY"

Judging by his prime-time speech last week, the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency will be marked by increased militarism abroad and authoritarianism at home. The centerpiece of the president’s speech was his demand for a new law forbidding anyone on the federal government’s terrorist watch list from purchasing a firearm. There has never been a mass shooter who was on the terrorist watch list, so this proposal will not increase security.However, it will decrease liberty.

Individuals can be placed on the list if their Facebook or Twitter posts seem “suspicious” to a federal agent. You can also be placed on the list if your behavior somehow suggests that you are a “representative” of a terrorist group (even if you have no associations with any terrorist organizations). Individuals can even be put on the list because the FBI wants to interview them about friends or family members!

Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt. The .01% hide ~$30 trillion in tax havens.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
“Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.
These crimes annually cost millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, with recent history continuing literal centuries of US lie-began Wars of Aggression that involved nearly all families in two horrific global wars for colonial empire.

How John McCain Crippled Obama’s War on ISIS

A story leaked out of Washington credits Senator John McCain, empowered by America’s corrupt congress to oversee Pentagon programs, with derailing the Obama administration’s “coalition bombing campaign” in Syria and Iraq. McCain and key right wing extremists, working in concert with Turkish, Israeli and Saudi intelligence, have placed a “political shield” over terrorist targets in Iraq and Syria, something that has frustrated American pilots, silenced by the threat of imprisonment or worse.

9/11: A Global Perspective – WW3 Now Raging over Oil, Money and Power. The Battlefield, Our Pockets, the Price, Debt Slavery.

“…we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. “Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised.

No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.” -- John F. Kennedy

FBI Agents Knocked On Neighbors Doors In San Bernardino Asking If They Had Camera Footage The Day Of The Shootout With Suspects

John Friend of The Realist Report interviews a man who lives directly in front of where the shootout between law enforcement officers and the terrorist suspects ended. The Asian man hid in his bathroom on the floor as the barrage of gunshots began. Later that day, the FBI knocked on his door and he allowed them inside his home. They asked if he had a camera and if he took any footage of the shootout, which he did not. The FBI also asked if he lives with anyone, but the man told the FBI that his roommate was not home. The man saw the dead bodies and blood in the street after the shootout, but the suspects both had masks on so he couldn't see their faces. He also says he saw the police, SWAT Team, and 'ARMY' on the scene at the time of the shootout.

Washington Post whines: ‘fringe’ news entering mainstream

Even the Washington Post, center of all that is good and right and true and holy about the news, is under siege. What can be done to protect WaPo from The Fringe? Is it time for Bob Woodward to write a new book? Do they need surgical masks? Hazmat suits? Should they flee underground and turn the whole operation into a level 4 virus lab with steel vaults and air seals?

Well, dear WaPo, I have a piece of fringe for you. I know you need more readers, and this is a killer. Literally. If you set your hounds loose on it for six months or so, you’ll drag out some of the most explosive material you’ve ever seen, and you’ll be able to print two editions a day. Readers’ll fight with each other to grab issues of the paper off the stands. Watergate? Bill and Monica? Sunday picnics compared with what I’m offering you.

Backslash: Anti-surveillance gadgets for protesters

“There is a huge disparity between the amount of technologies used by the authorities and the technologies available to protesters and activists during protests and riots,” warn Pedro Oliveira and Xuedi Chen, two designers from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. “That gap is only getting wider.”

Oliveira and Chen hope to even the odds with an electronic arsenal of their own. At the Radical Networks conference in Brooklyn this past October, they presented the Backslash kit, a package of devices that help protesters stay safe and connected during demonstrations. Gadgets include everything from portable routers that create improvised communication networks in the event of an Internet blackout to a pendant that blocks radio signals (to prevent cell phone surveillance).

Republican Billionaires Just Can’t Seem to Buy This Election

You’d think buying an election would be easy. This is, after all, the rough pitch that political consultants deliver when persuading donors to part with their money. (It’s also the primary theme of Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign.) The formula traditionally goes like this: Out-raise the competition, bludgeon them with attack ads, and watch the votes roll in. In the five years since the Supreme Court enshrined unlimited campaign contributions to organizations not directly affiliated with candidates, money has poured into the political system. And yet spending the cash haul effectively has never been more difficult.

Police Chief Andrew Spencer resigned this week after it was revealed that he shot and killed an innocent dog that was in a cage and meant no one any harm. To make matters even worse, he took the puppy to a firing range and killed it there because he did not want to deal with finding its home.

Spencer found the dog and managed to get it into a cage using a catcher pole. He then wrote in his report that he had planned to take the dog to a shelter where it would be “destroyed,” but then he got another call about a car accident so he decided to do it himself.

The report said that he had planned to go to “the cheapest vet to destroy the dog at the cost of the city.” However, the report continued “Due to the higher priority call and the imminent destruction of the dog, I decided it was best to destroy the dog and respond to the accident.”

Undocumented Citizen? The Absurd New Word for Illegal Aliens

This is the inevitable endpoint of politically correct language. Some of us are so sensitive that we can no longer use words that make sense. There is no such thing as an undocumented citizen. Someone who is not documented, is by definition, not a citizen. Don’t tell that to the Nicole Mehta, head of the university’s Common Ground Multicultural Dialogue Program. She claims that the term undocumented citizen was determined by students through surveys and focus groups.

W.H. Press Secretary Can’t Explain How Regulations Will Stop Mass Shootings

Like a true tyrant, Obama doesn’t have a good explanation for why our rights need to be discarded, or how that might benefit us in any way. On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the Obama Administration’s gun policies. Specifically, a reporter pointed out that none of Obama’s proposals would have stopped any of the mass shootings we’ve had. Here’s the answer Josh Earnest gave (or I should say, the answer he didn’t give because he completely dodges the question).

SIX COLOMBIAN MERCENARIES, AUSTRALIAN COMMANDER SLAIN IN YEMEN

The first fatalities among the United Arab Emirates’ mercenary army were reported last week in Yemen, where six Colombian fighters and their Australian commander were slain in combat with the Shi’ite Houthis. Details are scant on where the incident took place, but the UAE last month was reported to have sent “hundreds” of Colombian mercenaries into Yemen to try to break a stalemated conflict between the Saudi-led forces in the south and the Shi’ites in the north.

Chicago Police Adopt Israeli Tactics

After more than a year of stonewalling and what some might call obstructing justice, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel issued an apology for the horrific execution of Laquan McDonald by Chicago police officer Jason van Dyke. Laquan McDonald was the black 17-year-old who was shot 16 times by the police officer on Oct. 20, 2014. The video showing the shooting was only released by Chicago officials when they were ordered to do so by a judge in late November 2015.

But Chicago isn’t under martial law or military occupation, is it? Nor is it an apartheid state, with apartheid enforced by domestic martial law and military force, is it? To a normal civilian-oriented mind, one would think it is not under military occupation or martial law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the kind of outcome you can expect to see in American policing, when police are trained by the IDF, which is the primary, and critical, reason that American police SHOULD NEVER be trained by the IDF.

US AND TURKEY CAUGHT COVERING UP ISIS OIL TRADE

Turkey, US failed to notify UN Security Council of ISIS oil smuggling - Russian UN envoy Churkin.

Ankara and Washington contravened the UN resolution on financing terrorism by failing to inform the Security Council about Islamic State illegally trafficking stolen oil, Russia’s UN envoy has said.

“We’ve got serious complaints about the implementation of [UN] resolution (#2199, banning financing of the terrorist organization),” Vitaly Churkin told RIA Novosti news agency.

“Under Resolution 2199, adopted on our initiative in February, countries are obliged to provide information (about financing terrorists) to the Security Council - if they have such information. That means the Americans had to provide such information, and of course Turkey, which should have reported any illegal [oil] trade going on there. They didn't do it,” Churkin said.

EUROPEAN DREAM TURNS INTO DYSTOPIAN NIGHTMARE

As a Europhile British ex-pat who has spent most of his adult life living on “the continent,” as we Brits are fond of calling the non-British part of Europe, it might seem rather odd to be encouraging my fellow Brits to vote to leave the European Union. Not so long ago — perhaps a decade or so — I believed that the interests of Britain would be best served if the country was a full-fledged member not only of the EU but of the euro zone. I was wrong, but it was a different time and I was a different, more innocent me.

Moscow Could Raise Issue of Sanctions on Turkey at UNSC Over Daesh Oil

Moscow could raise the issue of imposing sanctions on Ankara over Daesh oil smuggling, Russia's UN envoy said.

UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — Russia could raise the issue of imposing sanctions on Turkey at the UN Security Council in light of oil smuggling by the Islamic State (IS, or Daesh in the Arab world) terrorist group but Moscow is yet to make a decision, Russia's envoy to the UN Vitaly Churkin said.

"In theory, of course, [imposing sanctions on Turkey] is possible. But we live in the real world. You can see that NATO decided to shield Turkey in the case with our downed plane. Others condemn Turkey on the sidelines, but they try not to do it openly. That's why we, given the reality of it, must predict what can happen," Churkin told RIA Novosti.

Answering a question whether Moscow could raise the issue of anti-Turkey sanctions at the UN Security Council, the envoy said it was possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government knows and NATO knows about this; however, they are turning a blind eye to the issue because ISIS was trained, and is funded and armed by the US with the intention of creating regime change in Syria.

Maltese ships owned by Turkish president’s son being implicated in ISIS oil trade

As Russia continues to accuse Turkey and its presidential family of directly benefitting from the trade in oil with the Islamic State, it transpires that the oil tankers allegedly involved in the illicit business are registered in Malta and all fly the Maltese flag.

Moreover, at least one of dozens of companies set up in Malta by Azerbaijani billionaire Mubariz Mansimov – which over the last year sold oil tankers to Bilal Erdogan, the son of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan – is also at the centre of the accusations.

Russia’s allegations of Turkish involvement in ISIS’ oil trade have focused primarily on the Turkish president’s son, Bilal Erdogan. The 34-year-old is one of three equal partners in the BMZ group, a major Turkish oil and marine shipping company, which both the Russian and Syrian governments have accused of purchasing oil from ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who cannot see the relationship between the Turkish government and illegally sold Daesh oil needs a cerebrectomy.

DIRTY BUSINESS: SWISS OIL TRADERS CAUGHT EXPORTING DAESH-EXTRACTED OIL

Swiss oil traders might have gotten themselves into some trouble after it was revealed that they regularly imported oil from terminals in Turkey, where Daesh, also known as ISIL/ISIS, sold their illegal oil supply, the Swiss newspaper Le Matin reported.

The newspaper obtained documents showing that several major Swiss petroleum trading companies exported oil from the Turkish city of Ceyhan, one of the places in the country where Daesh-extracted oil was sold.

"The risk [of Swiss companies importing Daesh-oil] is very high," said Jean-Charles Brisard, a French expert on terrorism financing, according to Le Matin.

As Daesh sold oil for a cheaper price than its official market price, many customers didn't mind buying it, although there was an official ban to purchase oil from Daesh-controlled territories.

REINVENTING BANKING: FROM RUSSIA TO ICELAND TO ECUADOR

Global developments in finance and geopolitics are prompting a rethinking of the structure of banking and of the nature of money itself. Among other interesting news items:

In Russia, vulnerability to Western sanctions has led to proposals for a banking system that is not only independent of the West but is based on different design principles.
In Iceland, the booms and busts culminating in the banking crisis of 2008-09 have prompted lawmakers to consider a plan to remove the power to create money from private banks.
In Ireland, Iceland and the UK, a recession-induced shortage of local credit has prompted proposals for a system of public interest banks on the model of the Sparkassen of Germany.
In Ecuador, the central bank is responding to a shortage of US dollars (the official Ecuadorian currency) by issuing digital dollars through accounts to which everyone has access, effectively making it a bank of the people.
