V-DAY: Russia’s Perpetual Fight Against Fascism

70 years since the great Victory! 70 years since Soviet people saved the world by smashing Nazism.

All accords with Russia were broken, whenever it suited invaders. The Scandinavians wiped out countless Russian lives, and so did the Germans, French, Poles, Brits, North Americans and Czechs, to name just a few. Russians never really ‘punished’ anybody, in the Protestant, Anglo-Saxon way. Punishment is mainly puritan, Protestant rubbish; the Russian way of thinking is too quixotic for that.

The West lied to Lenin, to Stalin, to Khrushchev and finally to Gorbachev. The West has been lying to Putin and about Putin.

Jade Helm:Some Thoughts From Army ATC and Friends

by ArmyATC » Sat Apr 04, 2015 3:16 pm
A lot of people are trying to decode what jade Helm means. But very few are looking at the second line , which is the overall mission objective.

In combat ops there are 5 phases of combat. I'm not going to go into detail, but you can find it. But phase 0 operations are relatively new. In the NDAA 2014, if you read through it, it provides increasing the budget for phase 0 operation.

What this is. Well this has to do with using infiltration techniques to identify who will be a problem BEFORE the fighting begins. Identifying individuals and groups that would be assessed by the military as possible non state actors.

That way, they can extract these individuals before ops begin thus severely limiting organized resistance.

How Big Money and Big Brother won the British Elections

The Conservatives have won the 2015 elections with a slim majority. Labour and the Liberal Democrats suffered unexpected crushing defeats, prompting their leaders, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg, to resign. And despite winning a significant percentage of votes, UKIP only managed to win one seat, with its leader Nigel Farage also resigning after losing to a Tory MP.

But the Tory victory reveals precisely why British democracy is broken.

The ultimate determinant of which party won the elections was the money behind their political campaigns?—?the winning and losing parties correlate directly with the quantity of funding received. Yet there is also compelling evidence of another factor?—?interference from Britain’s security services.

McRaven: Success in Human Domain Fundamental to Special Ops

While special operations forces are comfortable in the realms of traditional warfare, the human domain is perhaps more important -- both to the troops and to policy makers, McRaven said.

The human domain encompasses the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior, he explained. Success in this domain won't be achieved by traditional ground, naval or air forces, he added.

“Instead, success in the human domain will depend upon understanding the human terrain and establishing trust with those humans who occupy that space,” the admiral said. Building understanding and trust takes time, but once it’s built, “we can apply unique capabilities that are designed to assess, analyze, operate and prevail in population-centric strategies or struggles,” he said.

Human Terrain System

The Human Terrain System (HTS) is a United States Army, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) support program employing personnel from the social science disciplines – such as anthropology, sociology, political science, regional studies and linguistics – to provide military commanders and staff with an understanding of the local population (i.e. the "human terrain") in the regions in which they are deployed

A Brief Overview Of ABI And Human Domain Analytics

In Iraq, the Intelligence Community was tasked with finding terrorists and insurgents bent on harming US Forces and their interests. These terrorists or insurgents rarely performed activities that were dissimilar from non-terrorists (especially in the planning phases). In terms of Iraqi mysteries, the questions were “Will something happen?” and “How can we predict it and prevent it?” Analysts began to develop techniques to address these mysteries using any means at their disposal to aggregate these activities, assess transactions, and develop networks of interest.

Thinking Differently: Unlocking the Human Domain in Support of the 21st Century Intelligence Mission

People are the currency of the human domain; their visible behaviors and symbols are one of the only ways to really discern their thoughts and motivations. Add in the cultural complexity of differing worldviews, beliefs and values that play on those thoughts and motivations and the domain becomes even less certain to decode. Factor in that U.S. military and civilian personnel directly, and indirectly, influence the course of interactions and behavior in the domain and the human domain becomes incredibly layered and dense, where meaning and purpose is difficult to extract and effort and skill necessary for success within the domain difficult to master.

Adaptations Required To Survive In The Human Domain

Indeed,if America ever finds itself once again contesting in wars in which the object is not the destruction of enemy forces but instead to influence relevant populations toward our desired ends,then Army formations and land forces must understand the people they are trying to influence.

“I’m from that hell called Gaza. Extreme poverty, unemployment and insecurity destroy life and future of people who can hardly survive.......

War-weary mother writes
•“Schools work in 2 or 3 shifts a day especially in areas where displaced people of the last war still shelter in UNRWA schools; they don’t have any other place to go.”
•“Travel is not a lifestyle in Gaza… It is difficult for us to live or to leave.”

Police Abduct 10 Children From A Family In Kentucky Because Of Their ‘Off The Grid’ Lifestyle

The most recent example of this that has made national headlines is particularly egregious. Joe and Nicole Naugler of Breckinridge County, Kentucky just had their 10 children brutally ripped away from them just because the government does not approve of how they are living their lives and how they are educating their young ones. Let’s be very clear about this – Joe and Nicole had done nothing to violate the law whatsoever. All of their kids were happy, healthy and very intelligent. But because the control freaks running things in Kentucky got wind of their “off the grid lifestyle”, they have now had all of their children unlawfully abducted from them.

Saudi farm spend 'an opportunity'

Spending millions of dollars on a Saudi businessman's farm was not "compensation" paid to clear the way for a free trade deal, officials say.

Foreign Minister Murray McCully said a push for a regional trade deal was a key consideration when investing in the farm, but there would be no deal if it did not provide a sound opportunity for Kiwi companies.

New Zealand spent $6 million to help establish a demonstration farm near Dammam, in eastern Saudi Arabia, saying it would be used to showcase New Zealand's agricultural technology.

Almost 1000 breeding ewes were air-freighted from New Zealand to the farm owned by businessman Sheikh Hamood Al Ali Khalaf.

His Sydney-based business partner, George Assaf, told One News this week the fit-out was done to "compensate" the pair for New Zealand's ban on live sheep exports for slaughter. The 2009 ban had cost them hundreds of millions of dollars and the fallout was a reason for a stalled free trade agreement.

Labour penalties target non-voters

Labour has proposed withholding state support such as tax credits and Working For Families from people who are not enrolled to vote.

The measure could be justified if it lifts New Zealand's low voter turnout, the party says.

Getting the vote out is a priority for Labour and in its submission to the Justice and Electoral Select Committee, written by Labour's general secretary Tim Barnett, the party argues for the idea to be considered.

"The possibility of making enrolment to vote a pre-condition to receipt of various forms of state support (eg Working For Families, tax credits) should be examined," Labour's submission states.

Reports are now filtering in that preparations for a direct military assault on Syria are being made by Turkey in concert with the Saudis and Qataris. These reports are suggesting that the military offensive will take place within the next few days. Some reports speculate that such action could take place further down the road in late June...

Hawaii is not legally a state!

It is easy to find the courage necessary to support a moral position if that position benefits oneself. True moral courage, however, is proven when one chooses to support that which is morally and ethically right even when such a position is to one's one detriment.

The people of the United States find themselves in such a position right now, forced to choose between a moral and ethical position that carries with it the potential for "inconvenience", or supporting the status quo and having to admit to themselves that they are not the champions of justice they imagine themselves to be. By the end of this article, you will know for yourself which one you are.

Most folks have heard that Hawaii is a state, one of the United States of America. Most people, including those who live in Hawaii, accept that statement as a fact.

Ex-British diplomat Craig Murray predicts UK election results will accelerate arrival of an independent Scotland

Just as the SNP sweeps to utter domination of the Scottish presence at Westminster, the future of Scottish nationalism must move to a rejection of Westminster rule as illegitimate. That is the victory paradox.

There is no doubt that this is the best possible election result for achieving Scottish independence in the near term. The one thing that I believe might have postponed independence for decades, was a Labour Party government of the UK with SNP support, governing as Tory Lite but making the dreadful repressive UK state that little bit less openly vicious, the abuse a little bit more disguised, the wealthy corporate elite less openly triumphalist.

Trade associations still seeking injunction against Vermont’s GMO-labeling law

A group of food trade associations opposing Vermont’s food-labeling law for genetically modified ingredients will ask an appeals court for an injunction against the legislation. A federal judge already denied the group’s motion to block the law.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), the Snack Food Association (SFA), the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) are seeking a preliminary injunction against a Vermont law that requires companies to label foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). US District Court Judge Christina Reiss denied the group’s request for a preliminary injunction at the end of April.

GMO Opium? Super Seeds Produce More, Use Less Water for Afghan Poppy Crop

Opium production in Afghanistan has been surging for years despite all efforts to eradicate it, but this year mysterious high-yielding super seeds could create an even bigger crop - and more heroin on the market.

Afghan farmers are preparing for a bumper crop of the already lucrative poppies, as new seed promises larger, faster growing plants that need less water and produce more resin, the main ingredient in heroin.

Guns and Butter censored for first time in 11 years: show was about vaccine safety

Just to let you know, Bonnie Faulkner from Guns and Butter got word the other day from Pacifica KPFA that they would not be airing her interview with Gary Null about the recent vaccination bills currently floating around congress. The broadcast also discussed vaccine safety. This is the first time in 11 years that she has had a show censored.

Why, of all the controversial subjects she has handled over the years, are they going after her for a show on vaccines? This is outrageous as we have a couple of terrible bills that people should be educated about especially now before they become law.

Please call the station to complain about this censorship and demand they air it.

Thank you!

IRS shocks federal judges with statement on targeting conservatives

According to critics of the Obama administration and the IRS, Americans must endure one of the most progressive and intrusive tax-collecting systems in the world. "It appears that the IRS which is supposed to be non-political has been turned into a 'sword' against anyone who dares to disagree with Obama's radical agenda," claims political strategist Mike Baker. "And while the IRS mercilessly pursues average Americans, they permit tax cheats such as Rev. Al Sharpton, who owes the IRS at least $4 million in taxes, to have access to the Obama White House and other parts of the administration. It's believed he's being let off because he has a TV show on MSNBC on which he echoes the Obama White House propaganda and talking points" Baker alleges.

Chicago Pays $5.5 Million to Victims of Police Torture Racket

Isn't it sad this is a thing that exists?

Between 1972 and 1991, Chicago Police Commander Jon Burge led a group of rogue detectives known as “The Midnight Crew.” Their job was to gain confessions through torture using electric shocks, beatings, and mock Russian roulette; tactics he no doubt learned during his previous career as an MP in the US Army during the Vietnam War. Estimates vary as to how many people were tortured during his time as a police officer, with at least 120 cases being confirmed.

He was eventually fired in 1993, and the city has since paid out $100 million in settlements. An additional $5.5 million was approved on Wednesday by the city council, and was negotiated between the city, the victim’s lawyers, and Amnesty International. The ordinance also requires the city to provide psychological counseling and job placement for the victims.

British pollsters seek answers after getting election badly wrong

Britain's voters have delivered a painful blow not just to the Labour Party but also to the opinion pollsters, who had suggested a very different outcome to Thursday's election.

With votes counted in almost all of the 650 constituencies, the Conservatives were on course for an overall majority of over 326 seats in the House of Commons with Labour doomed to languish on the opposition benches with almost 100 fewer seats.

The result came as a complete shock to everyone after polls had been suggesting for months that the two big parties were neck-and-neck and neither of them would come close to winning an overall majority.

More Neocon-Zionist Theater in Texas

Gellar’s ‘Draw the Prophet’ charade was the perfect bait for any would-be radical trying to make a name for himself, yet they allowed the provocation to proceed under the pretext of ‘upholding the first amendment.’

As the Garland police spokesman confessed, this had all been pre-planned months beforehand. Only the very naïve or hopelessly deluded will put any faith in the FBI’s lame-duck denials that they deliberately allow attacks of these sorts to take place, or organize them directly by way of informants, such as the one linked to Simpson.
