Israeli army admits aiding al-Qaeda in Syria

Israel resigned to possibility of Iran strikes

A senior Israeli official said this week that the immediate implication of a completed deal will be increased Israeli surveillance of Iran's nuclear installations and the threat of a military attack if there is proof that it is in breach of the agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Israel will always claim to have proof when they attack. They claimed they had proof that Iraq was building a nuclear weapons when they destroyed the power station at Osirak. Israel claimed to have proof that Egypt attacked the USS Liberty. Israel claimed to have proof Syria was building a bomb when they attacked that country. Of course, we never see the proof; only an anti-Semite would doubt Israel's word on anything, after all!

Saudi Dictator’s US-Coordinated Terror-Bombings in Yemen: Updates

As the Saudi dictator continues his US-coordinated aggression against Yemen:

“Erich Ogoso, a spokesman with the United Nations’ humanitarian agency, reported 182 dead and hundreds more wounded just between last Wednesday and Sunday. Some 75,000 people have been displaced in the past week…

Saudi Arabia’s navy now controls all Yemeni ports” (CNN)

The UN human rights office in Geneva reports that more than half of those killed are civilians, and UNICEF found that at least 62, or about a third, are children.

As he bombs, the Saudi dictator is blocking humanitarian relief from entering Yemen:

“One day after Saudi warplanes killed scores of civilians in an attack on a refugee camp in Yemen, the Red Cross has confirmed that the Saudi military is now preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Yemeni capital city of Sanaa.

Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia last week as the huthis bore down on Aden.

Sen. Cotton: Israel Able to Take Out Iran's Nuke Facilities

Israel is capable of taking out Iran's nuclear facilities through airstrikes if necessary, Sen. Tom Cotton told CNN.

Mexico Is Arming Itself With U.S. Military Hardware

It’s not just money, of which the U.S. has provided $2.5 billion since 2008. The U.S. continues to supply Mexico with battle rifles, Humvees, helicopters and gobs of night vision gear. It all comes during an internal conflict that’s killed tens of thousands of people and is still extremely violent.

The country’s largest drug cartels have fragmented. Some cities?—?such as the border town of Ciudad Juarez?—?are considerably safer than a few years ago. However, rural areas continue to deteriorate, with smaller and more decentralized drug gangs kidnapping, extorting and killing with impunity.

But Mexico had been wary of buying weapons from the United States.

Top UK MP Brands Netanyahu War Criminal as Palestine Joins ICC

‘Sir Bob Russell, who tabled a motion in parliament last January that called for the state of Palestine to be recognised by the UK, welcomed Palestine’s accession to the International Criminal Court (ICC) on April 1, 2015, saying it was the first step on the road to the end of the oppression of the Palestinians.

“The fact that they are subject to Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and — wickedly — a breach in international law and the Geneva Convention and United Nations resolutions by the government of Israel,” he told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.

“Israel cannot go on behaving in the way it has in the last 20 to 30 years. The current leader of Israel [Benjamin Netanyahu] is a war criminal. Anyway you look at it, he is a war criminal.”‘

World leaders including US president Barack Obama, Russian president Vladimir Putin, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and German chancellor Angela Merkel were among those affected by the breach.

On Wednesday, April 1st, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet approved a measure to bring fracking (the patents for which are owned mainly by “large American companies, including Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Schlumberger”) into Germany. This is a prelude not only to U.S. President Obama’s secret Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) pact with Europe to subordinate national laws and regulations to trans-national mega-corporate panels that will be dominated by U.S. firms and that will override the participating nations’ environmental and labor regulations and consumer protections (and harm European economies generally), but it is also a major step toward removing Europe from Russia’s energy-market, and bringing U.S. and European oil companies to dominate there instead.

While the full report was unavailable online at the time of writing, the executive summary unequivocally laid the blame for 2014's violence at the feet of state security forces, but ironically chose to shy away from actually admitting how those 43 people died.

BEX Alert - "Belgium insurer refuses cover for Jewish kindergarten over anti-Semitic attack risk"

A Belgian insurance company has refused to renew the policy of a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels. They cited the recent growth of anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish organizations, adding that the risk of insuring the school was too high.

The European Jewish Kindergarten is located in the same Brussels district as the European Union headquarters and it normally enrolls around 20 to 30 children per year. The decision by the Belgian insurance firm not to renew the school’s insurance policy was taken in relation to a marked increase in the number of terrorist and anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish institutions over the last few years.

Even After Walmart Got Busted in Court for Stealing Workers' Wages, It's Trying Not to Pay Up

Walmart employees have over $187 million in damages they can collect from a successful wage theft lawsuit, but the company is arguing that each victim should get their own lawyer.

At the end of the 2014, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed lower court rulings which dictated Walmart was required to pay $151 million in unpaid wages and damages. This sum is supposed to go to an estimated 186,000 employees who worked for the company from 1998-2006. Including attorney fees, the total actually reaches over $187 million.

Study: Pharmaceuticals Kill More Teens Than Illegal Substances In The US

Combine the number of overdose deaths caused by heroin and cocaine, and you still haven’t matched the number of deaths caused by pharmaceutical prescription medications each year in the United States. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, pharmaceutical abuse was responsible for about 23,000 deaths in 2013 — that’s more than half of the overdose deaths in the U.S. that year.

Prescription drugs have a disproportionately large effect on teenagers. A recent study published in Journal of Public Policy and Marketing sheds light on this issue, which the CDC has labeled an “epidemic.”

Irate Democratic titans say Obama ‘screwed up’ and gave rise to China’s new bank

U.S. efforts to head off a new China-sponsored development bank for the booming Asia region ended in abject failure this week as organizers announced nearly four dozen countries — including some of America’s closest Asian and European allies — have applied to membership, amid growing criticism of how the Obama administration handled the entire episode.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama does not get the blame for this one, other than that he shares the blame with every other President going back 60 years who used the dollar, the Federal Reserve and the IMF as a tool of oppressive foreign policy, which has led to resentment around the world and a willingness to seek alternative banking systems.

U.S. Citizen Who Claims Surveillance Ruined His Life Denied Full Access to F.B.I. File

An asylum-grantee who claimed he has been detained, harassed, held in solitary confinement, and asked by federal agents to become a snitch was denied access to his full FBI file.

A federal judge in Washington DC ruled Friday that the Justice Department properly withheld information about Amine Touarsi in response to Freedom of Information Act requests filed by the Algerian-born US citizen.

Touarsi had attempted to get about 350 pages of redacted files unclassified to learn more about his case, according to court filings. He wanted the information because he suspected the US government had improperly mistreated and spied on him even after concluding that he had no ties to terrorists, as it initially suspected. Touarsi alleged that the government’s behavior has hurt both his professional and social lives.

The Russian president Vladimir Putin came up with the proposal of creating the currency union during a working visit to Astana. The Russian leader believes that introduction of the new currency in the next year will help protect the economy of the EAEU.

Kiev Commits Energy Hari Kiri

What the insane Washington-orchestrated civil war in Ukraine has not yet destroyed in Ukraine over the past year, now the conditions demanded by the US Treasury-controlled International Monetary Fund will. Kiev on March 13 received the first $5 billion tranche of a $17.5 billion three year IMF loan. It desperately needs the cash to avoid insolvency. However, in typical IMF policy, the aim of the money is to act as a poisoned “carrot” to force the victim country to undertake draconian “reforms” whose only effect will be to open the doors to foreign banks and multinationals to further rape and plunder what’s left of their economy. Now Kiev is about to commit energy Hari-Kiri to please the IMF and the US-imposed American-born Finance Minister, Natalie Ann Jaresko.

Jade Helm 15 – To “operate undetected amongst civilian populations”

The other day I was wondering aloud if we should be worried about the upcoming Jade Helm 15 Special Ops training operation scheduled to take place very soon in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and yes, glorious Texas.

I concluded that we should be worried because it seemed to me that the operation was going to be very different from regular training exercises in that it was going to be extremely covert with Special Ops guys infiltrating communities looking to them to rat out the undesirables and forming groups who could be trusted to help them round those people up and get rid of them.

You know, basically what Special Ops does in other countries routinely.

Shaken baby syndrome used to imprison parents to cover up vaccine damage

Every year, hundreds of U.S. parents are tried and convicted in criminal court for supposedly killing their babies by shaking them. But the nebulous condition known as "shaken baby syndrome," or SBS, appears to be a grand misnomer contrived for the sole purpose of covering up the real causes of SBS death, which include vaccine damage.

The presupposition is that if a deceased child exhibits things like bleeding at the back of the eye, bleeding from the protective area around the brain or brain swelling, then he must have been vigorously shaken by someone prior to his death. But this may or may not actually be the case, especially with new research suggesting that most humans aren't capable of shaking an infant hard enough to produce the symptoms commonly associated with SBS.

Video: Max Blumenthal on the ways Zionism exploits anti-Semitism

The perverse and counterintuitive relationship between Zionism/Israel and anti-Semitism is a difficult thing to articulate. Blumenthal does a great job of illuminating this very dangerous, and very real, relationship. He’s got an uncanny ability to articulate out loud, and very directly, the connections and concepts which many of us have difficulty expressing and can only intuitively feel. Since these truths are rarely spoken in public platforms, for me it’s very powerful to witness Blumenthal illuminate this concept so concisely. Just when you think he couldn’t possibly make a more critical point or make things any clearer, he makes another key observation/analogy. And he does it consistently and off the cuff. He’s a special cat, he’s an epiphany distributor.

Yemen Echoes of 1930s Aggression and Descent into Barbarism

The latest Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen, overseen by Washington, has been condemned by Iran, Russia and China.

Both the Arab League and the United Nations have fully transformed themselves into the ill-fated League of Nations that more than 70 years ago disgraced itself into oblivion when it failed to condemn foreign aggressions that eventually led to the cataclysm of World War Two.

As delegates gathered in Egypt’s resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh for the Arab League last weekend, nearly half of its member states were at the same time openly engaged in an aerial blitz on one of the League’s weakest countries – Yemen.

In Yemen, and Middle East, U.S. Needs to Learn When to Quit

Author’s note: The New York Times’ Room For Debate poses the question “Is Yemen America’s fight?” and asks whether the United States should be involved in regional efforts to fight the Houthis in Yemen.

Here’s my short essay on why the US has no business being there – and why Washington needs to rein in the Saudis before they embroil us all in an even bigger mess.

At the rate the Saudis are escalating, any full-on war in Yemen will cripple the entire Arabian Peninsula, and that would be a disaster for all key U.S. policy interests in the region.

Dimitry Orlov: The USA's License to Kill

....Americans like their weapons, and they like handing them out as a show of support. But more often than not these weapons end up in the wrong hands: the ones they gave to Iraq are now in the hands of ISIS; the ones they gave to the Ukrainian nationalists have been sold to the Syrian government; the ones they gave to the government in Yemen is now in the hands of the Houthis who recently overthrew it. And so the efficacy of lavish military spending has dwindled too. At some point it may become more efficient to modify the US Treasury printing presses to blast bundles of US dollars in the general direction of the enemy.

With the strategy of “destroying in order to create” no longer viable, but with the blind ambition to still try to prevail everywhere in the world somehow still part of the political culture, all that remains is murder. The main tool of foreign policy becomes political assassination: be it Saddam Hussein, or Muammar Qaddafi, or Slobodan Miloševi?, or Osama bin Laden, or any number of lesser targets, the idea is to simply kill them.

They examine the economic and financial reasons the population should look beyond porn - both property porn and the Page 3 sort - to see what disinformation, misinformation and more is being pushed on them by a media in bed with political and corporate elites. In the second half, they look at Deutsche Bank considering closing down their retail operations because, in this new QE and Zirp managed world, they lose money on depositors.

American police killed more people in March (111) than the entire UK police have killed since 1900

Yeah. Those numbers are real. A total of 111 people were killed by police in the United States in March of 2015. Since 1900, in the entire United Kingdom, 52 people have been killed by police. Don't bother adjusting for population differences, or poverty, or mental illness, or anything else. The sheer fact that American police kill TWICE as many people per month as police have killed in the modern history of the United Kingdom is sick, preposterous, and alarming

Military and Police in Florida Practice Detaining Citizens

If you live in South Florida, the black military helicopters buzzing over your city were not in your imagination — regardless of what the increasingly discredited establishment press has been claiming for years. A controversial military training drill took place last week in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that spooked more than a few residents, as well as analysts. Featuring Special Forces from various branches of the military working with local law enforcement, the drill involved, among other elements, rounding up civilians. And now, the training is coming under fire from locals and national media commentators as everything from an inconvenience and safety hazard to an ominous sign of trouble to come.

Germany’s Merkel Comes Out as Basically a U.S. Agent

Eric Zuesse
RINF Alternative News

On Wednesday, April 1st, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet approved a measure to bring fracking (the patents for which are owned mainly by “large American companies, including Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Schlumberger”) into Germany. This is a prelude not only to U.S. President Obama’s secret Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) pact with Europe to subordinate national laws and regulations to trans-national mega-corporate panels that will be dominated by U.S. firms and that will override the participating nations’ environmental and labor regulations and consumer protections (and harm European economies generally), but it is also a major step toward removing Europe from Russia’s energy-market, and bringing U.S. and European oil companies to dominate there instead.

Asthmatic man, 24, dies during traffic stop in Detroit

Clark, who said he’s retained an attorney and is considering suing the city, speculated his son was driving erratically because he had trouble breathing.

“We’ve had to put him on (breathing) machines, and he couldn’t play sports because of his condition,” he said, adding his son was likely “grasping for air or reaching for his inhaler, which is why they said he was weaving.”

Clark said the morning after his son’s death, a Detroit Police lieutenant phoned and read to him the officer’s report, which said his son was handcuffed during the encounter.

“The officer said after he cuffed my son, he told him ‘I can’t breathe,’ and that they gave him his (inhaler),” Clark said. “He told them, ‘it’s not working; call EMS.’ Then my son dies right there.”

Ukrainian saboteurs preparing provocations — DPR Defense Ministry spokesman

The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has data on subversive groups who, under the guise of militiamen, will stage provocations and open fire on Ukrainian positions, DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin said Wednesday.

"Our intelligence service has obtained a document confirming these plans. This is an electronic version of the Plan of special operation in sector B obtained by our agent. The document has been signed and is effective now," Basurin said.

He cited a few excerpts from the document, which in particular say that "the key efforts during the special operation are focused on discrediting the governing bodies of the terrorist organization ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ and convincing the population of Donetsk that ‘separatists’ are unable to ensure security in the city."
