Putin’s Grand Bargain to Israel: Can Israel Digest It?

Israel has now had a taste of President Putin’s ‘stick’: Your air superiority in the North has just been punctured by the Syrian air defences. You, Israel, will lose it completely were our Russian S400s air defences to be enabled: ‘Think it over’.

Last week saw the first ‘game changer’ that almost plunged the region into war: the downing of one of Israel’s most sophisticated aircraft – an F16i by Syrian air defense.

As Ronen Bergman wrote in the New York Times: “Israel will no longer be able to act in Syria without limitations”; and secondly, “if anyone was not yet aware of it, Russia is the dominant power in the region”.

'Absurd' Jeremy Corbyn CANNOT ‘laugh off’ communist spy meeting, warns ex-MI6 chief

It is “absurd” for Mr Corbyn to suggest he thought a Czechoslovakian agent was just a diplomat when he agreed to meet him, former MI6 boss Sir Richard Dearlove has claimed.

Sir Richard, who was the head of the Secret Intelligence Service from 1999 to 2004, also said that Mr Corbyn should have taken care to avoid the agent.

The ex-MI6 head said that said that holding only a couple of meetings with Jan Sarkocy would amount to "stupidity" on the part of Mr Corbyn.

However, he added that if the spy's claims that many more meetings took place were true then "this affair takes on a completely different aspect".

‘FRANKLY SICKENING' Tony Blair in astonishing attack over May's Brexit

In a wide-ranging and blistering attack, the former Labour leader took aim at the PM and other politicians who he accused of being in “cake and eat it” mode over the nature of the relationship between Britan and the EU once the UK leaves the bloc next year.

Writing on the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change website, Mr Blair said: “Each speech in this bizarre parade of Government Ministers designed to show unity only further exposes the division.

“They all try to pull the sword out of the stone, huffing and puffing away, and all fail.

British-Iranian prisoner’s release depends on £400mn arms deal debt row, claims husband

Imprisoned British-Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s release depends on the UK paying a £400 million ($765 million) arms deal debt it owes Iran, according to her husband Richard. The debt is thought to date back to the 1970s.
An Iranian Judge reportedly told Zaghari-Ratcliffe on Wednesday that her release was dependent on the UK paying the interest on the debt. Zaghari-Ratcliffe also claims the judge said the Iranian Foreign Ministry was in talks with the UK government.

“It’s the first time we've been told that it is linked to the dispute over the interest rate. But it is at least the second time an Iranian official has told Nazanin that her case is linked with the arms deal debt," Ratcliffe told the Telegraph.

Russian Presidential Elections: Boring, Useless and Necessary?

The sad reality is that these elections will change nothing and they are not only boring (no real, credible, opposition) but also useless. A grand waste of time and money. And yet, they are also necessary.

They are necessary because in the “Empire of Illusions”, to borrow Chris Hedges’ excellent expression, everybody simply has to play by the AngloZionist rules: elections are an absolute “must” even if they are self-evidently farcical.

May Govt Backs Sex-Change Treatment for Under 16s, Snubs Christian Group

Theresa May’s health secretary has snubbed Christian campaigners and backed the use of sex-change drugs for children under the age of 18.

The Department of Health and Social Care, led by Jeremy Hunt MP, said that young people have a right “to determine what happens to their own bodies,” including consenting to drug treatments that can sterilise them and stunt growth.

It comes as the Government considers a 2016 parliamentary report demanding “trans issues” are “mandatory” on school curriculums, 16-year-olds can change their gender without parental consent, and calling for “fast-tracked” sex changes.

Hunt’s department was responding to a petition by the Christian group Voice for Justice UK, signed by more than 8,000 people, which called for all surgical and hormonal sex-change treatment to “be banned below the age of 18.”

British Horse Racing is ‘Too White’, Industry Told

Horse racing in Britain needs to become more “diverse” the sport was told at an industry awards night at which 90 per cent of nominees were white.

Speaking at the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards in London on Monday, British Horseracing Authority (BHA) chief Nick Rust said the sport needs to question whether it has a problem with “unconscious bias”.

The betting industry bigwig slammed figures which showed that nine in 10 of the 265 nominations received for the awards, which mark the contributions of around 6,000 people who work in Britain’s horse racing and breeding industries, were from a white British or Irish background.

“We need to look at what lies behind this and ensure far better representation across the various minority groups in future years,” the Racing Post reported Rust as saying.

LGBT sex education – Corbyn backs classroom changes

Gay sex should be part of the national curriculum, according to Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour Party leader backed the coverage of same-sex relationships in schools during an interview on Will Young’s Homo Sapiens podcast.

Currently sex education solely focuses on heterosexual couples practicing safe sex and healthy relationships. Teachers are not instructed to address the LGBTQ sexual experience.

During his appearance on the podcast, which was covered by the Gay Times, Corbyn asserted that he is fully behind a reform of the way sex, especially gay sex, is taught in schools. “Sex education should involve same-sex as well as heterosexual relationships – it’s about relationships.”

Night of knife crime prompts Khan to seek emergency meeting as machete fight VIDEO goes viral

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called for a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May as knife crime in the capital hits crisis levels. Two people were stabbed to death on February 20 – the 14th and 15th knife deaths in 2018.

London Assembly figures showed there were 14,521 knife crime offenses in the capital in the 12 months to January 2018, with stabbings in London at their highest level in six years, a 23 percent rise from the previous year.

Mike Whitney: Did Trump Cut a Deal on the “Collusion” Charge?

Are the Intel agencies and the FBI looking for a way to end this political cage-match before a second Special Counsel is appointed and he starts digging up embarrassing information about the involvement of other agencies (and perhaps, the White House) in the Russiagate fiasco?

All of these questions need to be answered in order to clear the air, hold the guilty parties accountable and restore confidence in the government.

Theresa May calls for the Brexit transition to be extended indefinitely beyond December 2020

The UK government has called for the EU to discuss extending the Brexit transition period indefinitely beyond December 2020, in a move that is likely to enrage Conservative Brexiteers.

The EU has previously insisted that Britain must be fully out of the EU by December 31, 2020, meaning a transition period would not be able to go beyond 20 months.

However, the UK's Brexit transition guidelines leaked to Business Insider, calls on the EU to discuss leaving this end date open indefinitely.

London's Property Crash Has Begun

The average age of a first time mum at London’s Chelsea and Westminster hospital is 37, a statistic that tells you everything you need to know about the choices supposedly affluent city dwellers are being forced to make in the capital. For the middle classes, the cost of living in London?—?the cost of getting by?—?long ago went past insane (£17,040: the cost per year of educating a four year-old child at Thomas’s school in Fulham, not including uniform). It’s the incredible price of property, of course, that’s been the engine driving this madness, ratcheting the pressure ever higher on Londoners who don’t own a home while making very wealthy, on paper at least, those who do.

Munich did nothing to appease Cold War 2.0 fears – Pepe Escobar

So, let Cold War 2.0 dissolve into what it should always have been – an empty shell.

The Munich Security Conference is supposed to be an annual lofty gathering of global politicians, and military and intelligence experts. Theoretically, they discuss serious security matters under a cool professional eye in an informed setting.

Yet, in these times of doom and gloom, what the 54th conference yielded was another Russophobia show – a direct connection to the “Russiagate” soap opera in Washington.

Home Office denies medical cannabis pleas for boy age six

Requests for a medical cannabis licence to help a boy whose rare form of epilepsy improved after taking the drug have been denied by the Home Office.

Six-year-old Alfie Dingley, from Kenilworth in Warwickshire, suffers up to 30 violent seizures a day.

His parents want to treat him with medical cannabis oil, which is illegal in the UK.

...

Ms Deacon said Alfie went to the Netherlands to take a cannabis-based medication in September.

She said that while there, the medication, prescribed by a paediatric neurologist, saw his seizures reduce in number, duration and severity.

At one point while in the UK, Alfie had 3,000 seizures and 48 hospital visits in a year, but while abroad he went 24 days without a single attack.

Escalation in Syria – How Far Can the Russians be Pushed? - The Saker

A new US strategy in Syria: to punish the Russians as much as possible short of an overt US attack on Russian forces.

Events in Syria have recently clearly taken a turn for the worse and there is an increasing amount of evidence that the Russian task force in Syria is being targeted by a systematic campaign of “harassing attacks”.

First, there was the (relatively successful) drone and mortar attack on the Russian Aerospace base in Khmeimin. Then there was the shooting down of a Russian SU-25 over the city of Maasran in the Idlib province. Now we hear of Russian casualties in the US raid on a Syrian column (along with widely exaggerated claims of “hundreds” of killed Russians).

Brains for Brexit: UK Intellectuals Break Ranks with Pro-EU Academic Establishment

Some of the UK’s best and brightest have banded together to form a new pro-Brexit group to counteract the propaganda that Leave supporters are dim-witted, ‘low-information’ voters.

‘Briefings for Britain’, which has launched a new website, is backed by over 40 distinguished former civil servants, historians, legal professionals, philosophers, scientists, and others — and claims there are more like them who are still afraid to stick their heads above the parapet.

“They said, ‘I’d love to be part of your group but I haven’t got a proper job yet and I probably won’t if I’m identified’,” explained Dr. Graham Gudgin, an economist at the Centre for Business Research and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, in comments to The Times.

“One of our contributors said he was told by a younger pro-Brexit colleague that his professor had told him that people who voted Brexit were the sort of people who sent his relatives to concentration camps,” he added.

‘Military Arm’ Party of Remain Movement Launched to Stop Brexit

A leader of Renew Britain has described the new anti-Brexit party as the “military arm” of the Remain movement, which will “threaten” sitting MPs who back Brexit.

James Clarke, one of three “principals”, said plans to field candidates at the next general election would put pressure on sitting MPs to reconsider their position on Brexit.

Islamic London: "Run, Hide, Tell"

Muslim-majority areas typically consist of poor, unattractive housing projects, remote from the city center, which long ago were abandoned by their original indigenous, working-class populations. They often feature men sitting around cafes and women cooped up at home. They suffer from a range of social pathologies, including unemployment, criminal gangs, and drug-trafficking.

In some instances, store names are only in Arabic.

The Muslim presence is implicit in the intense, pervasive, and depressing security measures installed against jihadi threats of violence. These range from signs urging "Run, Hide, Tell" to bollards, barriers, and gates.

Plastic Microbeads Banned in the U.K. but Your Products May Still Have Them

Waking Times

It can be quite surprising to find out that your facial scrub, body wash or toothpaste contain thousands of tiny plastic microbeads. What’s even more appalling is the fact that thousands of tons of these microbeads end up in the ocean every year. Because of this staggering impact on our waterways and oceans, the U.K. has joined the U.S. in a ban of plastic microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products.

Goofy Indictments Divert Attention from Criminal Abuses at the FBI and DOJ

All of these suspects will go uninvestigated, unindicted, and unpunished just like the perpetrators of the Iraq War, just like the perpetrators of the Financial Meltdown, and just like the perpetrators of all the major crimes against the American people.

The evidence that the FBI and DOJ “improperly obtained” FISA warrants to spy on Trump campaign affiliate, Carter Page, has now been overshadowed by the tragic massacre in Parkland, Florida and the obfuscating indictments of 13 Internet “trolls” who have not been linked to the Russian government and who are being used to conceal the fact that the 18 month-long witch hunt has not yet produced even one scintilla of hard evidence related to the original claims of “hacking or collusion”.

Is John Brennan the Mastermind Behind Russiagate?

What role did Obama play? What about the Intelligence Community Assessment? Was it based on the contents of the Steele report? Will the “hand-picked” analysts who worked on the report vouch for its conclusions in or were they coached about what to write? How did Brennan persuade the reluctant Comey into opening a counterintelligence investigation on members in the Trump campaign when he knew it would be perceived as a partisan attempt to sabotage the elections by giving Hillary an edge?

Soon the investigative crosshairs will settle on Brennan. He’d better have the right answers.

Army recruitment numbers PLUNGE after 'DISASTROUS' decision leaves THOUSANDS dropping out

FURIOUS Army veterans have complained of staff shortages despite a record number of people applying to join the Armed Forces that blamed “red tape” for the gaff, it has been reported.

Thousands of those wishing to serve their country on the front line dropped out last year after they became frustrated with the application process that takes an average of 300 days to complete.

SAS veteran Andy McNab described the blunder “absolute madness” as he labelled the process a “bureaucratic nightmare”.

Mr McNab added: “How you can go from over 100,000 trying to join to less than 8,000 signing up defies belief.

Mueller: No Collusion Between Trump and Putin, But the Russia Card Is Bigger Than Ever

Sheer hypocrisy and crass dishonesty incarnate.

Now, a few days later—and thirteen indictments from one of Mueller’s grand juries, announced by the very same Rosenstein, specifically against more “Russian players” who reportedly “meddled” in the 2016 American elections, but without any connivance by the Trump campaign—and Rosenstein is feted as a veritable savior of the republic by those same commenters. Those Neocons who now selectively support the president and those bitterly anti-Russian Fox pundits (with the possible exception of Tucker Carlson) are absolutely giddy with delight! For too long, in their defense of President Trump against the charge of collusion, they had found themselves in the extremely uncomfortable situation (for them) of having to mount an attempt to exculpate the Russians, or at least lessen their culpability.

British PM Wants London and Brussels to Work Jointly to Resolve Security Issues

The 2018 Security Conference is under way in Munich, where British Prime Minister Theresa May is due to deliver a speech titled Road to Brexit: A Security Partnership.

In an upcoming address to world leaders attending the 2018 Munich Security Conference, UK Prime Minister Theresa May will tout a new UK-EU treaty on intelligence and security. She will also say that the safety of European citizens should not be jeopardized by "rigid institutional restrictions" and "deep-seated ideology."

"The challenge for all of us today is finding the way to work together, through a deep and special partnership between the UK and the EU, to retain the co-operation that we have built and go further in meeting the evolving threats we face together," according to May.

New Year fitness craze fails to boost retail sales as consumer spending flounders

PUMPED up spending on gym wear and fitness equipment could not prevent UK retail sales sagging in January. Concerns mounted that cash-strapped consumers will struggle to power economic growth after official figures showed sales volumes edging up by just 0.1 per cent from the previous month, when they declined by 1.4 per cent.

This was well below economists’ forecasts of 0.5 per cent growth, while the 1.6 per cent year-on-year improvement also undershot predictions.

Churchill Sent 2 Mil Russian Refugees to Certain Death at End of WWII

We recently stumbled across this remarkable article from 1988! in the journal Imprimis, and when we read it, we could scarcely believe our eyes. When we started asking people about it, we heard different things - one person said this has been disproven, others said it was true and that they knew eye-witnesses who were deported.

Apparently the British government sued Tolstoy when he made these charges in an attempt to shut him up. We don't know if the charges are true or not, but it makes for extraordinary reading, and I appeal to people who know something about this to please help us fill out our knowledge in the comments section below. It is situations like this where our commentors are simply invaluable.

EU Backs Down on Brexit Deal ‘Punishment Clause’ After Mogg Declares: ‘We Won’t Roll Over’

The European Union has backed down from its plans to insert a ‘punishment clause’ into its Brexit deal with the United Kingdom, after leading Leave campaigners including Jacob Rees-Mogg said the country would not “roll over” for Brussels.

The European Commission, led by President Jean-Claude Juncker, and chief negotiator Michel Barnier wanted Britain to agree to a sanctions mechanism throughout the so-called ‘transition’ period which will — assuming a deal is made — run for roughly two years after Britain’s formal exit from the EU in 2019.

The Commission’s draft proposals instructed Britain to “abstain, during the transition period, from any action or initiative which is likely to be prejudicial to the [European] Union’s interests”, and provided for the bloc to suspend Britain’s trade access without reference to the European Court of Justice in the interests of saving time.

Royal Navy Commander ‘took his eye off the ball’ as £1billion nuclear submarine hit ship

A ROYAL Navy officer crashed a nuclear submarine into a tanker after he “took his eye off the ball” during an exercise to train future commanders, a court martial heard yesterday.

Commander Justin Codd, 45, was in charge of one of Britain’s latest and most advanced submarines, the £1billion HMS Ambush, during the “toughest military command course in the world”.

But he failed to spot the 24,000-ton tanker MV Andreas looming overhead off the coast of Gibraltar in July 2016.

The UK’s hidden hand in Julian Assange’s detention

"It now emerges that the last four years of Julian Assange’s effective imprisonment in the Ecuadorean embassy in London have been entirely unnecessary. In fact, they depended on a legal charade.

"Behind the scenes, Sweden wanted to drop the extradition case against Assange back in 2013. Why was this not made public? Because Britain persuaded Sweden to pretend that they still wished to pursue the case.

"In other words, for more than four years Assange has been holed up in a tiny room, policed at great cost to British taxpayers, not because of any allegations in Sweden but because the British authorities wanted him to remain there. On what possible grounds could that be, one has to wonder? Might it have something to do with his work as the head of Wikileaks, publishing information from whistleblowers that has severely embarrassed the United States and the UK." >>

"Naval forces as a structure must be taken very seriously. You have already lost your main port and oil wells, that was a huge part of the national wealth. And your vulnerability from the sea is greater than anywhere else" he said in an interview with the Ukrainian media.

Boris Johnson will today warn that keeping Britain shackled to EU laws after Brexit would be 'intolerable, undemocratic' and make it all but impossible to sign trade deals.

In a major speech titled 'A United Kingdom', the Foreign Secretary will call on Leave and Remain campaigners to come together for the future of the country.

Setting out his upbeat vision, Mr Johnson will say leaving the EU is 'grounds for hope, not fear' – and will warn that any attempts to reverse the referendum would be a 'disastrous mistake and a betrayal'.

BIG SIX energy firm E.on is falsely sending letters and texts telling their customers they “need” to upgrade their gas and electricity meters to a smart meter.

While all Big Six energy providers are obliged to offer a smart meter to all eligible customers by 2020, according to a government target, customers do not have to take up the offer.

Steele Dossier an MI6 Operation Backed by Anti-Trumper Theresa May?

***
Indeed, it’s not even clear the Russiagate investigation itself will be impacted. After all, the narrative may have flipped on one variable – from Trump campaign collusion to Democratic and FBI collusion – but the constant remains the same: Russia. Trump’s defenders are as insistent as his detractors that the real culprit is Russia! Russia! Russia!

Sean Hannity of Fox News has been particularly hyperventilative that the entire Steele Dossier lying at the black heart of the mess consists of “phony, fake-news Russian propaganda” and “Russian intelligence lies” from British MI6 (supposedly “former”) spymaster Christopher Steele’s “Russian sources.” Even level-headed observers like Paul Sperry and Patrick Buchanan characterize the file as a “Kremlin-aided smear job” and “Russian dirt [that] Steele was spoon-fed by old comrades in the Kremlin’s security apparatus.”

Christopher Steele is not Russian

Sure, maybe Vladimir Putin personally whispered every word of the dossier into Steele’s ear.>>>

Billionaire Soros Vows to Spend Additional $138,300 on Anti-Brexit Campaign

Hungarian-US billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (OSF) are set to pledge a new donation of 100,000 pounds, or roughly $138,300, to the campaign to stop Brexit, according to media reports.

The latest pledge comes on top of 400,000 pounds that Soros had earlier decided to contribute to Best for Britain campaign, the Telegraph newspaper reported on Sunday.

The spokesperson of UK Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday, in a comment on Soros' donation, that London's position on the withdrawal from the European Union would not change and there would be no second referendum.

Barclays Bank charged over Qatar loans

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has charged Barclays Bank PLC with "unlawful financial assistance" related to billions of pounds raised from Qatar in 2008.

The same charges were bought against Barclays PLC in June last year.

The move to charge Barclays Bank as well is significant because it holds the banking licence that allows it to operate in different countries.

So, if Barclays was found guilty, it could lose that crucial licence.

Soros ‘proud supporter’ of plans to scupper Brexit

Liberal billionaire George Soros has defended his donation to an anti-Brexit campaign, saying he fully supports efforts to prevent Britain leaving the European Union.

The Hungarian-born investor faced allegations of meddling in British politics last week when it emerged that he had donated £400,000 ($558,000) to the pro-EU lobby group 'Best for Britain.’

On Thursday the Telegraph reported that Best for Britain is trying to recruit major political donors and business leaders to undermine Brexit.

The group is reportedly lobbying MPs to vote down the final deal, a move that could initiate another referendum or a general election.

Navy's new nuclear submarine could be SCRAPPED as MoD tries to plug budget black hole

ONE of Britain’s newest nuclear submarines may be delayed or even scrapped as the Ministry of Defence tries to plug a £21bn back hole in its budget.

A high-level Royal Navy document has revealed plans showing the seventh Astute class submarine could be pushed back by five years or “cancelled”, adding that any change in the programme could pose a “significant impact on capability”.

It will mean having only six of the £1.6bn “hunter-killers” instead of eight, the number originally identified as necessary to effectively protect Britain’s Trident-carrying submarines and safeguard our shores from Russian predators.

Hungarian Government Slams Anti-Brexit Plot: ‘Why Do We Say “Stop Soros”? Just Ask the British People’

The Hungarian government has weighed in on the revelations concerning a plot by billionaire globalist George Soros to topple the British government and trigger another EU referendum.

“Soros is funding groups that are working to overturn Brexit, to reverse a decision taken at the request of UK voters, and to possibly topple the democratically elected government of Theresa May in the process,” observed Dr Zoltán Kovács, the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy.

“Let that sink in for a moment.”

The Nunes Memo Needs More Work – Philip Giraldi

As a former intelligence officer, the first thing I noticed was that the claim by Democrats on the Committee that the memo’s release amounted to “treason” and would compromise classified information does not hold water.

Even the FISA court is aware of FBI inventiveness.

FBI procedures and ambiguities aside, this is nevertheless serious business.

If it can be determined that the omissions in submissions to the FISC were deliberate and calculated, the astute blogger Publius Tacitus has correctly observed that some senior FBI and DOJ officials who signed off on misleading or fraudulent applications concealing the antecedents of the so-called Steele Dossier to the FISC are now facing possible contempt-of-court charges that would include prison sentences. They include James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Dana Boente and Rob Rosenstein.

Britain's Mirror buys Express for £126.7m as sales drop

The publisher of Britain's left-wing Daily Mirror newspaper struck a £126.7 million deal on Friday to buy a series of titles including the right-wing Daily Express in a bid to stem a decline in advertising revenues and sales.

The papers were the biggest two in Britain after World War II but are both seeing big drops in circulation, according to the latest figures.

The £126.7 million ($176 million, 143.6 million) deal signals a major consolidation for a sector that is struggling against falling revenues in Britain.

The Daily Mirror had a daily circulation of around 580,000 in December 2017, a drop of 18.84 percent since the same month in 2016, while the Daily Express fell to around 364,000—a decline of 6.82 percent.

The chilling letters, which were typed but sent in handwritten envelopes, told the recipients: “You have stoked the fires of Brexit and led us to this moment. You can no longer be tolerated. We are coming for you. We are going to kill you”.

Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage has welcomed mainstream exposure of the ‘Soros Web’ after a plot by the billionaire globalist to thwart Brexit was revealed by The Telegraph newspaper.

“Since those twin shocks of Brexit and Trump back in 2016, one of the main narratives from the establishment has been, ‘These things happened because of outside interference’,” he told listeners to his regular LBC show.

“Yes, we’re back to our old friends, ‘The Russians!’ We’ve had Ben Bradshaw, Labour MP, standing up in the House of Commons, and saying that Russian money was put into the Brexit campaign.

“In America, we’ve reached levels of total hysteria — so much so that, apparently, I was acting as a Russian agent,” he laughed.

Professor Stephen F. Cohen: Rethinking Putin – A Critical Reading

Professor Cohen is right: the real Putin has absolutely nothing, nothing at all, in common with the pseudo-Putin the Western media presents to its infinitely gullible and zombified audience.

I do believe that Professor Cohen will eventually go down in history as the most intellectually honest and courageous Russia expert in the US. In the meanwhile, the West is still stuck in its old, ideological ways: imperialism, nationalism and messianic exclusivism on one hand, and a complete surrender to post-modernism, cultural self-hatred, petty minority politics and moral relativism on the other.
