Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

A petition to nullify the UK’s EU referendum and hold another appear to be riddled with fraudulent data. Raw data examined reveals that many of the participants come from outside the UK, or use IP addresses outside the UK. Only UK or British citizens and residents can create or sign a petition, according to the rules. You can see the geographical breakdown here.

Some 39,411 signatories came from Vatican City, even though the city state has a permanent population of only 450. Over 23,000 voted from North Korea.

The House of Commons petitions committee is investigating the petition for fraud, and has already removed 77,000 “signatures” - but says the site was “not hacked”. The petition, ironically created weeks ago by a Leave campaigner, calls for the vote to be rerun if turnout was under 75 per cent, or the winning plurality was under 60 per cent.

At least 2,000 troops from more than 14 NATO member states and their partners in eastern Europe attend the exercises, according to the ministry.

DEALING WITH A FINANCIAL CRISIS UNDER COVER OF BREXIT CHAOS: ECB BLOWS €400BN ON “BREXIT BLACK FRIDAY” BANK BAILOUTS

Remember TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Program that the US Congress approved to bail out banks and other companies during the Financial Crisis? $700 billion were authorized, later reduced to $475 billion. The Treasury eventually dispersed $432 billion. I bring this up because the ECB bailed out the European banks with more than TARP, in just one day: on Brexit Black Friday.

It’s Still the Iraq War, Stupid

This fault line is very well defined. The manufactured row about “anti-Semitism” in the Labour Party shows exactly the same split. In my researches, 100% of those who have promoted accusations of anti-Semitism were supporters of the Iraq War and/or had demonstrable links to professional pro-Israel lobby groups. 100% of those accused of anti-Semitism were active opponents of the Iraq War. Never underestimate the Blairite fury at being shown not just to be liars but to be wrong. Iraq is their Achilles heel and they are extremely touchy about it.

US Customs wants to collect social media account names at the border: 'Please enter information associated with your online presence'

Your Twitter handle may soon be part of the US visa process. Yesterday, US Customs and Border Protection entered a new proposal into the federal register, suggesting a new field in which persons entering the country can declare their various social media accounts and screen names. The information wouldn’t be mandatory, but the proposed field would still provide customs officials with an unprecedented window into the online life of travelers. The process already includes fingerprinting, an in-person interview, and numerous database checks.

Iceland is voting in a presidential election which a historian with no experience of public office is favourite to be win.

Historian and political newcomer Gudni Johannesson has won Iceland's presidential election.
The final count showed 39% of Icelanders voted for him, putting him ahead of a former prime minister and central bank governor.
Mr Johannesson, 47, had told supporters he would try to be a unifying force.
The poll came amid anger at the elite, some of whom were alleged to hold offshore accounts in the Panama Papers tax evasion investigation.

Brexit: Anger over 'Bregret' as Leave voters say they wanted 'protest vote' and thought UK would stay in EU

Remain voters are voicing their outrage amid claims by some people who voted for a Brexit that they regret their decision.
Electoral services workers have reported calls from people asking if they could change their decision after Friday’s result became clear, while some publicly admitted they intended to use a “protest vote” in the belief the UK was certain to remain in the European Union.

The claims that "Leave" voters really want to "remain" is about as real as that petition for a second referendum!

The Voice of the White House

“The main reason the FBI does not wish to release the Mateen taped conversations is that he expresses a good deal of what the FBI, and others above them, consider rank Muslim extremist propaganda. If all of what he said were made public, there would unquestionably be a strong anti-Muslim reaction in the United States and considering the large American Muslim population, the government has decided to put a lid on this. Perhaps the FBI is unaware that the Mateen conversations were intercepted and taped at the time and eventually, all of this will leak out, via the Internet, into the public. In actuality, there are very few secrets any more but perhaps the government is unaware of the degree and extent their secret memos, conferences and situation papers have been culled. The release of some of these prior to the coming election would have a devastating effect on the voting public.”

End of the EU? Germany Warns of Brexit Domino Effect as 5 More Countries Push to Leave Europe

By Matt Agorist

A Brexit domino effect could effectively end the European Union once and for all as five more countries may seek to follow Britain’s lead, according to the German newspaper Die Welt.

"The EU and NATO are evil institutions. These two institutions are mechanisms created by Washington in order to destroy the sovereignty of European peoples. These two institutions give Washington control over the Western world and serve both as cover and enabler of Washington’s aggression. Without the EU and NATO, Washington could not force Europe and the UK into conflict with Russia, and Washington could not have destroyed seven Muslim countries in 15 years without being isolated as a hated war criminal government, no member of whom could have travelled abroad without being arrested and put on trial." – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Calls For Texas Independence Surge In Wake Of Brexit Vote

Vocativ analyzed use of the phrase “Texit” since the beginning of 2016, finding that use of the phrase exploded when the Brexit results were announced on Friday, June 24. As of publication, more than 5,800 people on Twitter used the phrase, a five-fold increase from the day before. 1,745 people tweeted about Texit between 7:00 and 8:00 AM London time, the hour when the final results were announced, with more than 3,000 Texit tweets posted in the hours since.

How 100 Syrians, 200 Russians and 11 dogs out-witted ISIS and saved Palmyra

The ISIS Plan A was to detonate the massive explosions of “Erase” by using a mobile phone from as far away as between 5 and 10 kilometers to trigger the massive explosion. A backup Plan B triggering method was tied into landline phone lines. Discovered only a short period before the conflagration was likely to be unleashed, arriving Syrian forces acted fast and the first measure they took was to have the two Syrian phone services Syriatel and MTN shut down all the phone lines in and around Palmyra. “Erase” was disabled unless ISIS had a Plan C. If so, it did not work either.

BREXIT victory shocks NWO – were “conspiracy theories” responsible?

The New World Order plan to impose bankster-driven global tyranny took a huge hit Friday morning as news of the Brexit victory stunned markets, political leaders and pundits.

They obviously hadn’t planned on this. Polls before the vote showed “leave” down 52%-48%. Given the likelihood of pro-“remain” election fraud – the skids for which had been greased by the elimination of exit polls – a pro-Brexit result seemed mathematically impossible. So…what happened?

That is undoubtedly what the Rothschilds and their minions are asking themselves as they take a much-needed break from cackling and rubbing their hands together in glee at the cascading successes of their planetary hostile takeover operation, and instead get to experience a tiny fraction of the anxiety that their victims everywhere have been living with for centuries.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. ‘US History’ as easily-proved lies of omission and commission to hide the .01% rogue state empire, and cheer for stupefied American myth (2 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.” ~ President Harry Truman, Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman (1974) by Merle Miller, pg. 26.

2-minute video: US imperialism 1800 – 1900:

US “History” class textbooks are ridiculous and obvious propaganda in support of ongoing US rogue state empire.

For those of us who study history, this is easy for us to point to, defend, and destroy counterarguments that these texts are other than unacademic lies of omission and commission meant to bullshit children into “believing” their political and corporate leaders.

I understand that for those unfamiliar with at least one game-changing example of tragic-comic lies presented in typical public school history texts, my claim might appear unrealistic; as unrealistic of a boy pointing to a naked emperor at a parade with claims of exactly opposite of what “officials” and media were saying.

New Clinton Email Smoking Guns

Here are the records:

A. March 17, 2009 memorandum prepared by S/ES-IRM staff regarding communications equipment in the Secretary’s New York residence identified a server located in the basement. (This email shows early on that the Obama State Department was very much aware of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, down to its very location in her house!)

B. In November 2010, Secretary Clinton and her Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations discussed the fact that Secretary Clinton’s emails to Department employees were not being received. The Deputy Chief of Staff emailed the Secretary that “we should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.” In response, the Secretary wrote, “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.” (This is the smoking gun email that Mrs. Clinton evidently withheld, according to the AP.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In order to go on using her private server, the security systems on the State Department computers had to be disabled, leaving them open to hackers stealing US secrets!

Clinton Email Scandal: Latest Batch Exposes Two Big New Problems For Hillary

Another email released this week reveals that State had set up an official government email account for Clinton to use, and then gives a clue as to why Clinton never used it.

"You should be aware," the email says, "that any email would go through the Department's infrastructure and subject to FOIA searches."

Meanwhile, other emails show that not only did Clinton's unsecured private email system risk exposing sensitive and at times highly classified information to outsiders, it forced the State Department to compromise its own security to accommodate her.

The FBI Criminal Investigation into Clinton’s Email Server: It’s Time for Hillary to Concede to Bernie Sanders.

Former U.S. attorney general Michael Mukasey wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal back in January, claiming the charges were justified. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the retired chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told CNN‘s Jake Tapper that it was time for Clinton to drop out of the race back in February, long before the current surge in support for Sanders.

“If it were me, I would have been out the door and probably in jail… This over-classification excuse is not an excuse. If it’s classified, it’s classified.”

Goodman didn’t mince words on what many Sanders’ supporters have claimed was the DNC’s decision to anoint Hillary Clinton the Democratic Party nominee long before the primaries even began, regardless of who ran against her or what skeletons might lurk in her proverbial closet. He also cited her extreme negative favorability rating and how she fares far worse head-to-head with Trump in polls than her rival Sanders.

State Department Syria memo: Setting the stage for war with Russia

Secretary of State John Kerry met Tuesday morning with several of the State Department “diplomats” who drafted an internal dissent memo calling for the US to launch air strikes against the Syrian government, supposedly as a means of bringing an end to the five-year-old war that has claimed well over a quarter of a million lives and driven over half the Syrian population from their homes.

The New York Times reported that Kerry and 10 of 51 mid-level operatives who signed the memo “engaged in a surprisingly cordial conversation” over the memo, which was leaked to the media virtually before the ink on it was dry.

There was nothing surprising about the tone of the meeting. Traveling in Europe when the memo surfaced in the press last week, Kerry described it as “an important statement.”

Putin on Brexit: "Some Don't Want to Dissolve National Borders"

President Putin linked the results of the British referendum to the high concentration of power within the EU structure.

“The percentage of mandatory decisions made by the European Parliament is larger than that of mandatory decisions made by the High Council of the USSR concerning its member-republics. This means that the powers are highly concentrated within [the administrative body of the EU],” the Russian president said.

“Perhaps some are satisfied with this state of affairs, some do want to move along this road of dissolving the national borders, but some don’t. As the referendum results have shown, the majority of Britons don’t want to follow this path,” Putin added.

Domino Effect: Brexit Will Trigger More Referendums and “The EU Will Crumble to Pieces”

The rising tide of nationalism in the UK will trigger other member states to demand their own referendums, and many observers believe it will be enough to break apart the EU altogether within just a few short years.

A group of European MEPs warned that last night’s astonishing Brexit vote will cause the EU to ‘crumble to pieces’ within the next five years.

‘This is the beginning of the end for the EU,’ Peter Lundgren, an MEP from the far-Right Sweden Democrat party, told MailOnline. ‘So many other countries will follow the UK. Europe will fall.’

More on Brexit — Paul Craig Roberts

Information continues to come in about the Brexit vote. A member of the British Army said that 90% of the lads in his unit voted to leave. They voted exit because they do not believe they should be involved in Washingtons wars. He said that his unit agreed that the wars are dictated by Washington, via Brussels, and not by the British people. He also said that that the soldiers were “taking their own pen” to the ballot box, because “they only use pencils at the polls and they could be rubbed out and changed.”

Despite the Vote, the Odds Are Against Britain Leaving the EU — Paul Craig Roberts

The propagandists who comprise the Western political and media establishments succeeded in keeping the real issues out of public discussion and presenting the leave vote as racism.

The British people should not be so naive as to think that their vote settles the matter. The fight has only begun.

Air Force One Opts to Land at SeaTac Airport Instead of Boeing Field during Obama's Seattle Visit Today

I thought I felt a great depression in the Force.

Obama's SS is being extra cautious by landing at SeaTac instead of Boeing Field where he usually lands. Why?

Yes Boeing field is closer, but it is very easily accessible since it borders I-5. (never made sense to me from a security standpoint) However, his motorcade now has to drive from SeaTac to Seattle, which I think could be an even greater risk. If it's worth risking the drive, why not just land at secure, nearby McChord AFB and not put SeaTac in potential danger?

Either that, or they just don't want him to see 'The Jungle' as he lands. http://www.seattlepi.com/local/article/Seattle-jungle-homeless-camp-cl...

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Introduction: defining ‘bullshit,’ demanding comprehensive, objective, and independently-verifiable factual accuracy everywhere in Life, along with freedom to authentically respond (1 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

This 11-part series addresses an overarching fact about public education: its design of intentional curricular lies of omission and commission to keep our children and the general public powerless, relatively stupid, and controlled work animals.

Importantly, I do not blame education professionals working in good-faith effort to produce high-quality learning from our children; public education exists in a matrix of control for ongoing empires that I’ll explain in detail within the series’ sections. That said, anyone truly educated in one’s field gradually discovers that public education is a ridiculous substitute for what’s most important to teach and learn. This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious when pointed to, with this paper’s content including factual assertions that no counterarguments exist outside of shallow and misleading bullshit.

Derailing Chilcot: The Red Herring of Post-War Planning in Iraq

Let’s be clear: the US-UK military occupation of Iraq – full of massive amounts of deadly violence dished out by the US and UK armed forces, torture and destructive divide-and-rule tactics – was a catastrophe for the people of Iraq. And it was hugely unpopular, with a secret Ministry of Defence 2005 poll of Iraqis finding that 82 percent “strongly opposed” the presence of coalition troops, with 45 percent saying attacks against US and UK forces were justified.

However, it is a complete red herring to suggest better planning is the crux of the issue. “The problem wasn’t the way that this was implemented, the problem was that we were there at all,” argued Rory Stewart, who served as the coalition’s provisional authority deputy governorate co-ordinator in Maysan province In Iraq, in 2013:

“All these people who think ‘If only we had done this, if only if we hadn’t de-Ba’athified, if only we hadn’t abolished the army’ misunderstand the fundamental tragedy of that encounter between the international community and Iraqis… it wasn’t the detailed, tactical decisions that were made, it was the overall fact of our presence. The problem was so deep that if we hadn’t made those mistakes we would have made other mistakes. It was a wrecked intervention from the beginning, from the very moment we arrived on the ground.”

Brexit: Britain Votes with Trump, against Hillary, Obama

British voters chose to “leave” the European Union on Thursday, defying the polls — and President Barack Obama, who had urged Britain to “remain” in the EU. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had also urged Britain to stay in the EU. Only Donald Trump had backed the campaign to leave.

Republican strategists had panned Trump’s decision to travel to the UK in the midst of campaign turmoil, and in the wake of his blistering attack on Hillary Clinton earlier this week.

Now, however, it looks like a risk that paid off handsomely, in the currency of foreign policy credibility.
