Account Blocking Won’t Stop Truth Seekers From Turning to RT

Despite the fact that the Royal Bank of Scotland dealt a serious blow to RT UK by blocking all of the organization’s accounts, it remains unlikely that the broadcaster’s audience in Britain will be deterred by this move from searching for alternatives to the mainstream media.

Earlier today, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said that all the company's accounts in the UK have been blocked. Following her statement on Twitter, RT UK said it had been informed by the National Westminster Bank that it "will no longer provide" banking arrangements for the broadcaster. "Long live freedom of speech!" Simonyan grimly remarked, while Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the issue by saying that London has seemingly abandoned all of its freedom of speech obligations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a great respect for, and link to it frequently.

I find it far easier to get a conceptual grasp of what is going on in the world by reading it than I do attempting to read what passes for "alleged journalism" here in the states, with presstitutes and whorespondents regurgitating the official government line.

I find the bank's move here crude, brazen, and petulant.

Closure of Russia Today bank accounts nothing to do with us – Treasury

Russia has angrily accused Britain of trampling on freedom of speech after NatWest said it was closing down the bank accounts of the Kremlin TV channel Russia Today (RT).

Russian MPs, the foreign ministry and human rights officials all condemned the move, and said the UK government was guilty of violating press freedom and of double standards. “Long live freedom of speech!”, RT’s editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan, tweeted sarcastically.

Simonyan said she had received a letter out of the blue from NatWest saying that it was pulling the plug on the broadcaster’s accounts from mid-December.

“We have recently undertaken a review of your banking arrangements with us and reached the conclusion that we will no longer provide these facilities,” it said. The decision was final, the letter added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

RT, Press TV, Sputnik News, and Fars news in English are, collectively, my "canaries in the coal mine"; I respect their coverage, and link to them frequently.

So if you see a stoppage of their coverage of world events in English, you can be reasonably sure that war is not too far behind such a stoppage.

RT: NatWest 'freezes Russian channel's UK bank accounts'

NatWest bank has frozen the accounts of Russia's state-run broadcaster RT, its editor-in-chief says.

Margarita Simonyan tweeted: "They've closed our accounts in Britain. All our accounts. 'The decision is not subject to review.' Praise be to freedom of speech!"

RT says the bank gave no explanation for its decision.

It said the entire Royal Bank of Scotland Group, of which NatWest is part, was refusing to service RT.

The broadcaster, previously known as Russia Today, says NatWest wrote to its London office saying: "We have recently undertaken a review of your banking arrangements with us and reached the conclusion that we will no longer provide these facilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another good reason for people to quit using banks and go back to using cash, as the banks are starting to think we are slaves rather that merely customers!

There it could use its jets and helicopters to carry out airstrikes against militants in Syria.

The heavily armed aircraft carrier is expected to arrive in British waters as early as next week, according to the report.

Meanwhile, the UK and its NATO allies are preparing a major operation to track Russian warship and its vessels in an operation down through the North Atlantic to the Bay of Biscay and then into the Mediterranean, wrote The Telegraph.

You see, we’re supposed to select another perfectly malleable politician – a Republican not unlike a Democrat – who won’t shake things up too much while in office. Same ol’, same ol’. And you, little person, you are supposed to vote for more of the same and like it.

In the UK, running a blog over HTTPS is an act of terrorism, says Scotland Yard

This is one of those cases where you do a double take. As reported by Ars Technica, UK’s Scotland Yard is charging a Cardiff person with preparing for terrorism – but the list of charges shows activities we associate with very ordinary precautionary privacy measures. “Developing an encrypted version of a blog” can be read as, and probably means, publishing it over HTTPS – such as this blog and many others, simply because it’s considered best practice.

He was also charged with having a flash drive in a cufflink with a bootable operating system, presumably Tails. Using open and free operating systems with the capacity for general-purpose encryption is now an act of terrorism?

Theresa May trying to protect soldiers who murder prisoners and torture civilians, says top human rights lawyer

Theresa May has been accused of wanting to cover up war crimes committed by British soldiers by a world-leading human rights lawyer.

In her speech to the Conservative party conference, the Prime Minister pledged to rapturous applause that “we will never again in any future conflict let those activist left-wing human rights lawyers harangue and harass the bravest of the brave, the men and women of our Armed Forces”.

Under Government proposals, British soldiers would be exempt from action under European Court of Human Rights law. However, they would still be subject to International Humanitarian law, including the Geneva conventions and UK criminal law.

Geoffrey Robertson QC, a former United Nations’ appeals judge, wrote in an email to The Independent that Ms May’s rhetoric was becoming "increasingly ignorant".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister May is going down a really morally slippery slope with these proposals: I wish she would reconsider.

But what this telegraphs to me, almost in red letters, is that the UK is considering some more military adventurism in the near future which may involve torture, and and the murder of civilians by UK military troops.

Plan for UK military to opt out of European convention on human rights

Controversial plans for the military to opt out from the European convention on human rights (ECHR) during future conflicts will be introduced by ministers, to see off what the prime minister described as an “industry of vexatious claims” against soldiers.

The long-mooted idea will be announced on Tuesday at the Conservative party conference by Theresa May and the defence secretary, Michael Fallon, although it was immediately criticised by human rights groups who said it was based on a false narrative of spurious lawsuits.

May said the change would “put an end to the industry of vexatious claims that has pursued those who served in previous conflicts”. It would be implemented by introducing a “presumption to derogate” from the ECHR in warfare.

Fallon, in comments released ahead of his conference speech, said: “Our legal system has been abused to level false charges against our troops on an industrial scale.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great: with this withdrawal European convention of human rights, now the UK military will be able to maim, torture, and kill with impunity!!

And if these claims against the UK military were completely illegitimate, how in the world could have possibly cost British taxpayers millions?!?

This move doesn't augur well for peace and social justice, and telegraphs that the management of the British military believes that they are on their way to some major military confrontations around the world.

With each and every additional single day of this mindless bloodshed, the world watches and wonders why it is being allowed to continue.

Hysteria at UN Betrays Western Terror Sponsors

Hysteria and histrionics at the United Nations Security Council from the three permanent members, the United States, Britain and France, was tantamount to a signed confession. Ironically, one can imagine how the wording of such a «confession» would go: We the intensely vexed members are hereby displaying our boorish displeasure that the terror proxies we covertly sponsor in Syria for regime change are being thrashed.

Such was the tawdry display of undiplomatic conduct by the US, Britain and France, with officials from these countries inveighing against Russia with unsubstantiated, sensationalist accusations of committing war crimes. The intemperance was then followed by tantrums and walk-outs from the Security Council meeting – a meeting that these three members had originally convened.
