FLASHBACK - US politician Jack Lindblad claims Charlie Hebdo killings were by 'US and Mossad' to keep Israel's Netanyahu in power

A US Senate candidate has voiced his own theories on what he believes is real reason behind the brutal attacks in Paris last week, claiming that the killings were not the work of terrorists but of the US and Mossad in a bid to keep Israel’s current Prime Minister in power.

Speaking to PressTV, Jack Linblad, of the Green Party of LA County Council, claimed that the actions of the Kouachi brothers and Amedy Coulibaby, who collectively shot and killed 17 people in three separate and shocking attacks in Paris, were not acting on their extremist religious beliefs but were instead carrying out orders from the US and Mossad.

Mr Linblad added that he believed the bloody attacks had been orchestrated to keep Europe “under [Benjamin] Netanyahu’s thumb” and to ensure the Israeli leader stays in power.

Paris shootings: 15 people killed at Bataclan concert venue in French attacks

Terrified hostage Benjamin Cazenoves, who was trapped in the concert hall, posted two harrowing messages on Facebook.

Mr Cazenoves posted: "I'm still at the Bataclan. First floor. Serious injuries."

He called on the authorities to act quickly to break the hostage situation.

"They need to attack quickly. There are survivors inside.

He managed to post two messages to Facebook despite the violence. In the first he described gunmen executing hostages "one by one."

"They are shooting everyone. One by one. First floor. Quickly. "

This message, posted at 10pm was followed 25 minutes later by another.

"Alive. Just cuts. Carnage. Dead bodies everywhere."

He appeared to have made it out in one piece.

France reintroduces border checks ahead of UN climate talks

With more than 115 heads of state and government expected to attend the conference at Le Bourget just outside of Paris, the French government is taking steps to minimise the risks.

Authorities say they are putting controls in place at 285 road, rail, sea and air border points from now until December 13th. That's two days after the conference closes.

It is said 30,000 police will be involved in the operation.

France's only aircraft carrier to leave for Middle East on Wednesday

The only aircraft carrier in the French Navy’s fleet, the Charles de Gaulle, will leave for the Persian Gulf on November 18, to join the fight against Islamic State in the region, Paris has confirmed.

“The naval group will leave Toulon (a major French naval base) in a few days, on November 18, to arrive in the Persian Gulf in mid-December,” government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said, as cited by Le Figaro.

France announced the deployment of its only aircraft carrier against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on November 5.

Paris under siege: Dozens killed and injured in series of coordinated terrorist attacks after Kalashnikov-wielding gunman goes on the rampage in the capital, 60 hostages are taken at concert hall and explosions are heard near national stadium

Paris has been gripped by terror after three terror attacks in the heart of the city left at least 26 dead tonight.

There was a shootout inside a restaurant on the Rue Bichat, two explosions near the Stade de France sports stadium and another shooting at the Paris Bataclan concert hall where terrorists are said to be holding 60 people hostage.

It is thought that at least 11 were killed in the restaurant, close to where the Charlie Hebdo shootings occurred in January, and another 15 killed in the theatre, police officials said.

Gunfire was also heard in other bars around the French capital.

Hollande-Rouhani lunch 'scrapped over wine spat'

A formal lunch between the French president and his Iranian counterpart during next week's historic meeting has had to be scrapped after the Elysée Palace reportedly refused Iran's request to serve up halal meat and no wine.

France won’t dine with Iran unless wine is served

Guess who’s not coming to dinner — or even breakfast or lunch?

Ahead of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s landmark European trip kicking off this weekend, French officials reportedly nixed plans for a formal meal in Paris with President François Hollande following a dispute over the menu. The Iranians, according to France’s RTL Radio, insisted on a wine-free meal with halal meat — a request based on Islamic codes that amounted to culinary sacrilege in France, a nation that puts the secular ideals of the Republic above all else.

HYPOCRISY: SAUDIS, U.S., FRANCE CALL FOR UN TO CONDEMN IRAN IN SYRIA

Saudi Arabia is pushing the U.N. General Assembly’s human rights committee to condemn Iranian and Russian intervention in Syria, a move that prompted complaints on Tuesday from the delegations of Iran and Syria.
The non-binding draft resolution, prepared by Saudi Arabia and co-sponsored by Qatar and other Arab nations, the United States, Britain, France and other Western powers, was presented during a meeting of the assembly’s Third Committee, which focuses on human rights.
In addition, without mentioning Russia specifically, the draft “strongly condemns all attacks against the Syrian moderate opposition and calls for their immediate cessation, given that such attacks benefit so-called ISIL (Daesh) and other terrorist groups, such as al Nusra Front.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Saudi government and the House of Saud; aren't you concerned about looking just a tad disingenuous with this resolution, when your goal is obviously regime change here, but in your "vision", to a more Wahabic-centric government?

Putin Tells Everyone Exactly Who Created ISIS

American people rarely listen to Putin’s speeches. Few opportunities to do so unless they go looking for it; They just assume their media is right and Putin‘s a “brutal dictator” who’s “trying to re-establish the Soviet empire”, end of story.

In western media Putin could soon find himself painted as the new combination Hitler/Stalin in a looming WWIII—another so-called “just war” which US will be “morally compelled to fight”, to “save the world from tyranny”. Christian dominionists will be calling it Armageddon—the final battle between Good and Evil before the return of the King!

Syria – Vienna-Geneva Peace Talks, an exploded Russian Airliner – and NATO-Trident Juncture

Why a foreign imposed transition? Transition seems to become a propaganda indoctrinated fait accompli.

Washington has been quite successful in its wicked embrace of Syria over the last few weeks. Just imagine, Kerry, in a propaganda-painted gesture of goodwill, forges the Vienna Peace Conference, this past Friday, 30 October. The results are inconclusive, but on to more talks in Geneva; no longer ‘Assad must go’, but rather the concession that “Assad is going to be part of any transitional governing body.” – Why a foreign imposed transition? Transition seems to become a propaganda indoctrinated fait accompli.

Why British Haste on Plane Bomb Theory?

Cameron and Obama are evidently being fed intelligence assessments of a bomb being stowed in the airplane's hold by terrorists.

British officials have made an unseemly leap to speculate on a terrorist plot in the Russian airliner crash over Sinai last weekend.

And Russia has understandably reacted furiously to the speculation, saying that it is too early to make such an assessment when crash investigators have not even compiled, let alone evaluated, evidence.

American officials, including President Barack Obama, are also now echoing the British claims of a bomb on the plane. The question is: why the haste?

NATO Invades Spain

The notion that the Pentagon would dare declare its own no-fly zone over northern Syria to protect a gaggle of “moderate rebels” from Russian and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) bombing is preposterous.

Fresh from its thunderous humiliation by the Taliban; its “liberation” of Libya for the benefit of militia hell; and while Russia was bombing the hell out of a Salafi-jihadi/”moderate rebel” constellation in Syria, NATO – in search for a “360-degree” response to Russia – resorted to invading… Spain.

BEX ALERT - French TV Site Reports Sounds of Explosion on Voice Recorder

The black boxes of the device made it possible to clearly hear the sound of an explosion during the flight, told France 2 Friday, November 6, an investigator who had access.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except that the official investigation reported no such thing, saying that there was a sound that suggested abnormal flight just before contact was lost.

I think this terror theme is being pushed by the US and its allies to take the initiative away from Russia in Syria, and France is part of that coalition, having just deployed their carrier the Charles DeGaulle to the region.

Russia hits out at Charlie Hebdo over crash cartoon

Russia has heavily criticised French magazine Charlie Hebdo for two cartoons depicting the Sinai air crash in which 224 people, mostly Russians, died.

One cartoon shows debris falling on a member of Islamic State (IS) with a caption reading: "Russia's air force intensifies its bombing."

In the other, a skull and body parts of victims are depicted.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Vladimir Putin, called the cartoons published by the satirical magazine "sacrilege".

"This has nothing to do with democracy or self-expression," he said.

France to send aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to fight IS

France will send its aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to participate in operations against Islamic States and its affiliates, French presidential office the Elysee announced Thursday.

French President Francois Hollande convened a restricted meeting of the Defense Council on Syria and Iraq, during which he reiterated the "importance of supporting the Vienna process towards a political transition, the only solution to the Syrian conflict."

"The deployment of the battle group formed around the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle was decided to participate in operations against IS and its affiliates," the Elysee said.

France now more repressive of boycott calls than Israel

On 20 October, France’s highest court of criminal appeals upheld the conviction of a dozen Palestine solidarity activists for publicly calling for the boycott of Israeli goods.

The ruling by the Court of Cassation adds to growing concerns about the harsh crackdown on free speech, backed by French President François Hollande, since the murders of journalists at the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in January.

It also makes France, along with Israel, the only country to penalize appeals not to buy Israeli goods.

Towards a reversal of the situation in the Near East

The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin. In any event, the coming upheaval will modify the status quo which has been in place for the last five years. Most of the powers implicated are therefore scrambling to change sides before the other players.

French cartoonist Zeon arrested for anti-Zionist work

The French cartoonist Zeon was [arrested] Tuesday morning … by four police officers of the Brigade of Repression of Delinquency People (BRDP).

[At 7am] four police officers woke the cartoonist to take him before the judge to the High Court Instance of Paris. A complaint appears to have been filed by the BNVCA (National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism).

The complaint seems to refer to the drawing – for which Zeon had yet been released last year by the 17th chamber – representing a balance and unbalanced weight of several historical crimes, but also for another drawing, which was not retained by the prosecutor at the trial, representing a Palestinian child stabbed by a Israel-shaped knife.

The judge has indicted the designer of incitement to racial, religious hatred, by speech, writing, picture or means of electronic communication. Zeon refused to answer his questions. He was set free in late morning.

Ex-French president Nicolas Sarkozy's mobile phones are seized and examined by judges probing £35m cocaine smuggling ring

A judge ordered two mobile phones belonging to Nicolas Sarkozy to be examined in relation to a £35million cocaine smuggling scandal, it has been revealed today.

The former French president’s name appears in court papers about an attempt to fly 680kg of the drug out of the Dominican Republic.

Sarkozy's visit to Russia: Mistake or farsighted step?

The French press reacted negatively to Sarkozy's visit to Russia. According to French newspapers, Sarkozy, having been charmed by Putin, is running anti-French policy to take revenge on President Hollande. This could be true to fact, but why does Putin need to meet Sarkozy in Moscow?.. Sarkozy's party fellow Thierry Mariani, who has been to the Crimea as part of an informal parliamentary delegation, believes that Sarkozy's most recent trip to Russia was reasonable. "This is not parallel diplomacy. France has been pursuing the policy of sanctions against Russia for two years already. Bravo! Never before Putin's rating has been so high. We are coming to the conclusion that the policy of sanctions has come to a standstill, - Thierry Mariani told France Info. - Sarkozy went to Moscow with a specific message that Europe must maintain a dialogue with Russia, that France plays a special role in Europe."

Philippe Verdier, arguably France's most popular weatherman, is the author of the book 'Climat Investigation' (Climate Investigation), in which he accuses state-funded climate change scientists of having been “manipulated” and “politicized.” He goes on to accuse the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of publishing deliberately misleading data.

Criminalization of Anti-Israel Activism Escalates, This Time in the Land of the Charlie Hebdo “Free Speech” March

The absurdity of France’s celebrating itself for free expression was vividly highlighted by this week’s decision from that nation’s highest court, one that is a direct assault on basic free speech rights. The French high court upheld the criminal conviction of 12 political activists for the “crime” of advocating sanctions and a boycott against Israel as a means of ending the decades-long military occupation of Palestine. What did these French criminals do? This:

The individuals arrived at the supermarket wearing shirts emblazoned with the words: “Long live Palestine, boycott Israel.” They also handed out fliers that said that “buying Israeli products means legitimizing crimes in Gaza.”

In France — self-proclaimed Land of Liberté — doing that makes you a criminal.

Criminalization of Anti-Israel Activism Escalates, This Time in the Land of the Charlie Hebdo “Free Speech” March

The post-Charlie Hebdo “free speech” march in Paris was a fraud for multiple reasons, as I wrote at the time. It was led by dozens of world leaders, many of whom imprison or even kill people for expressing prohibited views. It was cheered by many westerners who feign upset only when free speech abridgments are perpetrated by Muslims, but not – as is far more common – by their own governments against Muslims.

Worst of all, the march took place in a country which is one of the most hostile to free speech rights in the west, as France quickly demonstrated in the days after the march by rounding up and prosecuting Muslims and other anti-Israel activists for the political views they expressed. A great best-selling book by French philosopher Emmanuel Todd released this year argues that these “free speech” marches were a “sham,” driven by many political sentiments – nativism, nationalism, anti-Muslim bigotry – that had nothing to do with free speech.

Secrets of the Syrian War: October 2015

The greatest secrets: the West has no people on the ground in Syria to take over the liberated territories; the Russians still seek partnership, Erdogan has bitten more than he can chew, and ISIS is a phantom, after all.

Russians are enjoying their Syrian adventure. Twenty days after its start, their entry into the Syrian war has paid off and brought some dividends.

Putin has been very popular before the war, with 86% support in the ratings, and now his public support has gone through the roof.

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Merkel’s Faustian embrace of Turkey

If the EU, under Merkel’s direction, accedes to Turkey’s demand for setting up safe zones in northern Syria, then that has ominous implications.

Turkey is pressuring Germany to create “safe zones” inside Syria as a “price” for alleviating the EU’s refugee crisis. It’s a Faustian bargain that could escalate the Syrian conflict, where NATO forces could end up pitted against Russia’s military.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hot-footing to Istanbul last weekend was capped with a U-turn regarding Turkey’s much sought-after membership of the European Union.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

America enabled radical Islam: How the CIA, George W. Bush and many others helped create ISIS

We have tried to harness the power of radical Islam for our own interests for decades. ISIS is partially on America

Since 1980, the United States has intervened in the affairs of fourteen Muslim countries, at worst invading or bombing them. They are (in chronological order) Iran, Libya, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kosovo, Yemen, Pakistan, and now Syria. Latterly these efforts have been in the name of the War on Terror and the attempt to curb Islamic extremism.

"A Very Heavy Agenda" - New documentary released about the neocons and how they run foreign policy for Dems & Repubs

They work both sides of the Democrat Republican fence (not that it is much of a fence anyway) and are now up to their eyeballs in reviving the cold war.

About the video:

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.

The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Part 2: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The New Neocons 1hr 35mins

After the Cold War, the US-NATO reach expanded significantly to take in most of the old Soviet Union clients in the Warsaw pact. Neoconservative darling Robert Kagan and his diplomat wife Victoria Nuland played key roles inside and out of various administrations and think tanks as they greased the skids for a US-sponsored coup in Ukraine. Part 2 shows the resurrection of old cold warriors from beltway depths to deliver blatant propaganda with techniques reminiscent of a red scare era that had only just faded from memory. US-funded outfits like Radio Free Liberty are pitted against Russia’s RT as each nation accuses the other of waging an ever more desperate and transparent "Information War".

Part 3: Maintaining the World Order 1hr 30mins

"When the Berlin wall fell, our work wasn't finished". -- Victoria Nuland, November 2013

“Fuck the EU” -- Victoria Nuland, February 2014

While stage managing the American empire has undoubtedly proved to be a more difficult task now than in the bipolar world of the cold war era, it is not for lack of greed or hubris that the Kagans and others continue to sell their vision. Did they create these ideas because they truly believe in America's right to be the dominant force in the world? Or, do these ideas help sell weapons and control resources like oil and rare minerals? Part 3 shows interview footage of an obscure PNAC member (Thomas Donnelly) taking credit for the ominous “New Pearl Harbor” phrasing in the notorious 'Rebuilding America’s Defenses' document. But the evidence shows the genesis of the concept to be patriarch Don Kagan, in conjunction with his son Fred, in prior op-eds that call for ‘a catalyzing event’. Other newly sourced footage shows the pair advocating for a US military ground invasion of Palestine on September 12th, 2001 and displaying an unnerving prescience about the 9/11 attacks themselves.

Why US fears Putin success in Syria

Russia is conducting operations that are lawful under international law with the full consent of the Syrian government – unlike the US-led coalition which is bombing the country illegally.

Last week, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter darkly predicted that Russia would suffer blowback from its intervention in Syria with acts of terrorism being committed on “Russian soil.”

Putin and the Press: The Demonology School of Journalism

Western media is engaged in an intense long-term propaganda campaign to demonize President Putin. Demonology offers no allies, no solutions and no positive path to peace and co-existence.

he major influential western print media are engaged in a prolonged, large-scale effort to demonize Russian President Putin, his politics and persona. There is an article (or several articles) every day in which he is personally stigmatized as a dictator, authoritarian, czar, ‘former KGB operative’ and Soviet-style ruler; anything but the repeatedly elected President of Russia.

Paris shares ideas of joint fight against ISIS, but insists on President al-Assad's resignation

France is ready for joint efforts and dialogue on Syria with all sides, but it continues to insist on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's resignation as a preliminary condition for settling the crisis in the country, French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll has said.

"If we want to effectively fight against ISIS (Islamic State), we ought to nip this evil in the bud: a political transition is needed that will clearly show to the Syrian people that Assad is not Syria's future," Le Foll said in an interview with Interfax on Oct. 8.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... according to the French, the best way to get rid of ISIS in Syria is to get rid of ISIS' main enemy in Syria, indeed the only reason ISIS is even in Syria, right? France is trying to play both sides. Like the rest of Europe, they want to avoid a full-on World War, but still over their masters; the same people who ordered France to cancel the Mistral deal with Russia!
