Oil depot near Kiev could have been set on fire by owners - Ukraine top security official

Investigators are considering the version that the BRSM-Nafta company’s oil depot in the Vasilkovsky District near Kiev was set on fire by its owners to destroy oil products involved in the criminal case, Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Secretary Alexander Turchinov said Thursday.
"The oil depot was built by the inner circle of [ex-Ukrainian President] Viktor Yanukovich illegally and without any permits," Turchinov claimed. "Moreover, investigators are considering the version that the arson was not accidental but designed to hide oil products the Interior Ministry investigated."
A fire broke out on Monday evening (June 8) at the BRSM-Nafta company’s oil depot some 30 kilometers (19 miles) from Kiev. One fuel tank caught fire, then flames embraced other tanks as well. Four people were killed, 14 were injured as a result of the accident. Prosecutors launched criminal proceedings.

"As you know, joint Ukrainian-American exercises are currently being conducted at the Yavorivsky range (Lviv region) and the equipment of the units involved in the maneuvers has entered Ukraine," State Border Service spokesman Oleg Slobodyan told TASS, answering a request to confirm or deny this information.
According to him, about 10 pieces of equipment have crossed the border with Hungary. Slobodyan also said that "after the exercise is over, it [the equipment] must leave the territory of Ukraine."

Rebel attack in Colombia leaves 300,000 in the dark

Colombian officials are blaming rebels for an attack on the country's energy infrastructure that left hundreds of thousands of people without power.

President Juan Manuel Santos said Thursday that the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia had blown up an energy pylon and blacked out much of the southern region of Caqueta Wednesday night.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Behind Bilderberg, Trilateral: the Globalists have a major problem

By Jon Rappoport

A gaping hole in the economic matrix...

Stay with me on this one. You’ll see what the powers-that-be are really worried about.

You can roll up Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Trade Organization, NAFTA, and the several current trade treaties nearing completion… you can insert all these Rockefeller Globalist forces into one great corporate agenda, and…

There is a problem. A problem for Globalism. This is, behind the scenes, what the titans of control are whispering about...

Disabled CA Boy's Testimony to SB277 Lawmakers: "I Love Going To School. Please Don't Take That Away From Me."

Otto was born a healthy little boy and was on target at every wellness check we had with our pediatrician. We got him all the recommended vaccines on schedule. Then, when Otto was 17 months old, he received four shots containing six different vaccines. At that time, he was walking, running, and climbing, just like his same-aged peers. One morning, not long after those 6 vaccinations, I entered his room and Otto was in major distress because he couldn't stand up. We immediately took him to the E.R. Over the next few days, Otto endured a painful spinal tap, a brain scan, and an M.R.I. It was discovered that Otto had an autoimmune reaction called Transverse Myelitis. It was explained to my wife and me that his immune system had gotten confused and had started attacking his own spinal cord causing severe damage.

'US Drawing Europe Into Crusade Against Russia, Against Our Interests' – Ex-French PM

“Today, Europe is not independent… The US is drawing us [the EU] into a crusade against Russia, which contradicts the interests of Europe,” Fillon told the BFMTV channel.
The ex-French prime minister, who served in Nicolas Sarkozy’s government from 2007 till 2012, lashed out at Washington and its policies.
Washington, Fillon said, pursues “extremely dangerous” policies in the Middle East that the EU and European states have to agree with.
He accused German intelligence of spying on France “not in the interests of Germany but in the interests of the United States.”

Harper's Visit to Ukraine Pointless and Counter-Productive

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s recent visit to Ukraine was yet another counterproductive and pointless gesture of unwavering Canadian support for the current government in Kyiv. No doubt Harper’s anti-Russian rhetoric would be welcome words to the ears of President Petro Poroshenko, as he tries to drown out the shouts of protest from his own disenfranchised citizenry.
It has been more than a year since Russia annexed Crimea following a referendum. Even a poll conducted by the Canadian government revealed that an overwhelming majority of Crimean residents are still happy with their chosen change of nationality.
Despite similar referendums in the eastern Ukraine breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, which also sought to become part of Russia, President Vladimir Putin declined the request. As a result, the two Ukrainian entities are in limbo and now refer to their joint territory as “New Russia.”

Swiss corruption investigators have pronounced their verdict on Ukraine

In May 2015, the Global Studies Institute of the University of Geneva published a major study on the state of corruption in Ukraine. They worked on this 180-page document from September 2013 until January 2014, based on material from previous years, and it is in many respects already outdated because of the drastically altered political situation in the country after the overthrow of the government. However, the study’s authors worked hard to identify the reasons why Ukraine has become the utterly corrupt state that it is today, and the investigators also looked into the history of how corrupt ties have developed in Ukrainian society.

East Ukraine Rebels Made Autonomy Proposal Knowing Kiev Would Reject It

Today, the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Aleksandr Zakharchenko, told Life News ‘I do not envision the DPR being part of Ukraine.’ ‘For me personally, the DPR’s future is as a free, independent state,’ he said, adding that, ‘the blood which our compatriots have shed cannot be forgotten. There can be no talk with Ukraine about any type of autonomy.’
This, of course, completely contradicts the suggestions for constitutional reform put forward by the DPR’s representative to the so-called ‘Contact Group’, Denis Pushilin.
How can we explain this contradiction? According to Pushilin today, the DPR has no intention of rejoining Ukraine, ‘This would, of course, be for us a form of suicide … nobody intends to go in this direction. But negotiations within the framework of international process is possible and is not excluded.’

The details of the poll are striking. Asked whether “In today’s economy, everyone has a fair chance to get ahead in the long run,” for example, 61 percent of participants said that “just a few people at the top have a chance to get ahead,” compared to 35 percent who said that “anyone can get ahead.” Significantly, the percentage of people who chose the latter response has fallen by 17 percentage points since a similar poll conducted in early 2014.

The Secret Attack on Net Neutrality the Media Won't Tell You About

On Wednesday, Rep.

The riders in the House financial services subcommittee’s appropriations bill, which funds the FCC and other agencies, would prevent those rules from going into effect until after the current court cases challenging them have been decided. The riders would also interfere with the FCC’s rule-making process and undercut the agency’s ability to enforce the rules.

a. Mike is an exceptional and outspoken critic of Israel, and

b. that he died.

11-Year-Old Boy Played in His Yard. CPS Took Him, Felony Charge for Parents.

One afternoon this past April, a Florida mom and dad I'll call Cindy and Fred could not get home in time to let their 11-year-old son into the house. The boy didn't have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.

It would be a month before their sons—the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother—were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.

Adelson’s Anti-BDS Event Links Money To Action

The “secret” Vegas weekend focused on planning for, and funding, a campaign to kill BDS in its academic cradle.

With U.S. billionaires both funding and setting up its top down strategy with Israeli-inspired organizations on American campuses, Israel’s successful invasion of U.S. institutions takes another major step toward “occupying” American institutions.

Four days after the Salon posting appeared, The New York Times buried two paragraphs about the Vegas event inside a longer story which featured the success Israel was enjoying in gaining anti-BDS support in state legislatures in South Carolina and Illinois.

This campaign against American supporters of Palestinian freedom, was prompted by the alarmed awareness among Israeli leaders, and their U.S. allies, that the BDS movement is rapidly gaining ground.

While Mr. Obama had, realistically speaking, no better alternative in choosing the timing for his administration’s foreign policy reorientation, a meaningful follow-through to implement his vision after his term in office expires would need a new Chief Executive with similar convictions; and, as things appear now, that prospect seems somewhat in doubt.

The last time that Obama went against the grain in a decisive way was when he objected to the Iraq War in 2002, but then, of course, he was just a state senator in Illinois.

Don't Expect Clinton, GOP Candidates to Work for Social Justice

My car’s bumper sticker reads “I’m ready for Oligarchy: the choice is clear. There is none.” It’s a truism that under our system, no one can be nominated or can win the presidency who isn’t a shill for the billionaire class. Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, will campaign as a populist in the primaries as Wall Street winks and says, “We totally understand the charade you need to perform to attain the White House. We’ll even act annoyed if that helps.” In the general election, she will move to the center and, after her likely coronation, govern from the right. Always cozy with the military-industrial complex, Clinton voted to authorize President George W. Bush’s criminal war in Iraq, which ended the lives of 4,000 U.S. service members, cost more than a trillion dollars, brought untold death and destruction to the Iraqi people and spawned the Islamic State.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly lashed out at "the left wing press" for highlighting comments she made about a viral video showing police officer Eric Casebolt manhandling a teenage girl at a pool party in McKinney, Texas. But Media Matters correctly described Kelly's June 8 comments where she claimed that the teenage girl attacked in the video shared some of the fault for the actions of the officer, arguing that the girl was "no saint either" because she didn't follow the officer's instructions. Kelly's remarks sparked widespread outrage in liberal and conservative media.

On the June 10 edition of her show Kelly said that "some of the left-wing press continue to use this incident to dishonestly push their own agenda." She claimed that Salon.com "repeat[ed] a Media Matters lie" that Kelly leapt to Casebolt's defense "by saying that this teen was, quote, 'no saint either.'"

According to the Pew Research Center, 30 percent of America’s workforce earns a near-minimum-wage salary—that’s almost 21 million people. As a cruel paradox, rents across the country keep rising.

Diplomats: EU has Israel sanctions ready, and Uncle Sam may not be able to help

Israel wishes to delay the signing of a nuclear deal between world powers and Iran, but not solely because such an agreement would be dangerous to the Jewish State.

The concern is that immediately following such an agreement, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will become the UN Security Council's and European Union's top priority, and the international community will be freed up to deal with the party it sees as responsible for the stagnation in the peace process - Israel.

This is the widely-held assumption in off-the-record conversations among diplomatic sources in New York and in Washington. "A diplomatic attack against Israel is expected soon that will surprise even the pessimists in Jerusalem," a senior Western diplomat told The Jerusalem Post's Hebrew-language sister publication, Ma'ariv. "In the Security Council, in western capitals and at EU headquarters, they are just waiting for the Iran deal to be signed and for it to be approved by the American Congress."

Good reason for Israel to set off a dirty bomb in the US and blame Iran for it!

Bond crash across the world as deflation trade goes horribly wrong

The global deflation trade is unwinding with a vengeance. Yields on 10-year Bunds blew through 1pc today, spearheading a violent repricing of credit across the world.

The scale is starting to match the 'taper tantrum' of mid-2013 when the US Federal Reserve issued its first gentle warning that quantitative easing would not last forever, and that the long-feared inflexion point was nearing in the international monetary cycle.

Paper losses over the last three months have reached $1.2 trillion. Yields have jumped by 175 basis points in Indonesia, 160 in South Africa, 150 in Turkey, 130 in Mexico, and 80 in Australia.

Zimbabwe Demonetizes: Offers US$5 Per 175 Quadrillion Zim Dollars

It's over! Starting June 15th and ending September 30th, the Zimbabwe Central bank will begin its process of "demonetization" of the old Zimbabwe Dollar. The Zimbabwe dollar will be removed as legal tender after the currency’s use was abandoned in 2009 following a surge in inflation to 500 billion percent. For bank accounts containing up to 175 quadrillion Zimbabwe dollars they will be paid $5, the country’s central bank said. The people remain angry slamming this as "abusing one's rights in the banking system," and claiming this is being done to enrich a chosen few.

BEX ALERT - Iran Spends Billions to Prop Up Assad

Iran is spending billions of dollars a year to prop up the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, according to the U.N.'s envoy to Syria and other outside experts. These estimates are far higher than what the Barack Obama administration, busy negotiating a nuclear deal with the Tehran government, has implied Iran spends on its policy to destabilize the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unable to derail the P5+1 because they cannot find any evidence Iran is building nuclear weapons while the world marvels at the hypocrisy of pretending Israel doesn't have any, the new rationale for killing the P5+1 agreement is that Iran will spend the sanctions-relief money in ways Israel does not approve of, such as supporting Syria against the US/Israeli overthrow!

From court-martialing Marines for having Bible verses on display, to removing chaplains for private counseling advice consistent with their faith and sponsoring denomination, to demanding an Air Force general be removed simply because he spoke at the National Day of Prayer – a publicly proclaimed holiday, the Obama atheists are out with the “long knives” to destroy all vestiges of Christianity from the ranks of our most honored institutions.

As Israel’s chief foreign relations official, Hotovely is responsible for representing Israel if negotiations with the Palestinians were to resume. She spoke at length claiming Palestinian actions over recent months to boycott Israel at FIFA, and their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state show the Palestinians are in no mood for a peace deal.

US attempt to ‘lecture the Pope’ before Putin meeting a ‘big responsibility’ to take – Kremlin

During their conversation, Pope Francis and Vladimir Putin touched on the issue of Ukraine, the Russian president’s spokesman said, noting that US advice on what concerns should be raised, was an attack on sovereignty and an attempt to lecture the Pope.

Just hours before the meeting between visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin and His Holiness Pope Francis, the US ambassador to the Holy See Kenneth Hackett encouraged the pontiff to take a tougher stance against Vladimir Putin. In particular, Hackett said the Vatican “could say more about concerns on territorial integrity”.

Set up by a group of academics, lawyers and politicians more than 25 years ago, the NGO – whose name means “in the image of” and is a synonym in Hebrew for human dignity – has at times portrayed itself as the conscience of the nation.

But legislation being proposed by Israel’s new right-wing government threatens to severely limit the work of B’Tselem and scores of other Israeli NGOs that receive millions of dollars each year in donations from foreign governments and foundations.

While the legislation is in draft form, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of the ultra-nationalist Jewish Home party says she is determined to crack down on those who take foreign money and then criticize Israel, accusing the NGOs of “eroding the legitimacy of Israel to exist as a Jewish and democratic state.”

Judge Rules Administrative Court System Illegal After 81 Years

A federal judge’s ruling against the Securities and Exchange Commission for using its own Administrative Law judges in an insider trading case is perhaps the beginning of the end of an alternative system of justice that took root in the New Deal. Constitutionally, the socialists tore everything about the idea of a Democracy apart. It was more than taxing one party to the cheers of another in denial of equal protection. It was about creating administrative agencies (1) delegating them to create rules with the force of law as if passed by Congress sanctioned by the people; (2) the creation of administrative courts that defeated the Tripartite government structure usurping all power into the hand of the executive branch, as if this were a dictatorship run by the great hoard of unelected officials.

African-American community rages against SB277 and the Tuskegee-like crimes of mandatory vaccines that destroy black babies' lives

The sleeping giant of the African-American community has awakened against the crimes of the vaccine profiteers and their relentless destruction of young black lives.

It's happening right now, and it touches my heart to see this community rising up and waking up to the life-destroying deceptions of the CDC and its pharmaceutical puppet masters that have dictated "public health policy" in America with wildly destructive consequences for the black community. An entire generation of black babies now suffers under the vaccine injury side effects that the CDC has known about but has willfully hidden from the world in order to protect vaccine profits, all while black children suffer from autism caused by vaccines!

Oregon Grass-fed Ranchers Face Criminal Charges for Grazing Animals

On Tuesday, January 27, 2015 we became accused criminals. The Union County Sheriff’s Department served us with a search and seizure warrant after several animals died over an extended period of time. The next day, they confiscated every head of livestock from our Summerville, Oregon property on the grounds of “criminal neglect”—but nothing more specific than that. They stole our breeding boar and sow, 6 mules, 5 horses, 23 yearling calves, 2 bulls, 4 steers, and 43 cows. The mother cows represent years of genetic selection for cows that will do well living on pasture and eating only grass. Almost all of our mother cows, all of our future beef, and hog breeding stock were taken. This is the majority of our livestock. Prior to the seizure, law enforcement had not presented us with any specific concerns that they wanted to see addressed. They did not work with us to have a veterinarian come on the property to assess our animals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Being a farm kid myself, I know that all farms lose animals. The "crime" here seems to be that these farmers were feeding their animals grass, instead of buying commercially produced "approved" animal feed from agribusiness.

Iraq is Obama’s quagmire now: His unauthorized war hasn’t worked — but he’s escalating it anyway

The Obama administration’s war on the Islamic State is quickly approaching its first birthday, and things don’t seem to be going especially well. The strategy President Obama laid out back in September had two key components for taking on ISIS militarily: The U.S. would provide air power and conduct “a systematic campaign of airstrikes,” and the Iraqi military (with “training” and “support” from U.S. military personnel) would “go on offense” against the terrorist state’s forces.

Favors to foundation donors stretch back to Hillary Clinton’s Senate days

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s efforts to provide favors to major donors to her husband’s global charity or her own political career stretch back far earlier than her tenure as America’s top diplomat, dating to the time she served as a U.S. senator and had the power to earmark federal funds and influence legislation, records show.

For instance, Mrs. Clinton introduced a bill when she was New York’s junior senator that allowed a donor to the Clinton Foundation to use tax-exempt bonds to build a shopping center in Syracuse, New York, public records show.

She also went to bat for Freddie Mac, working to defeat legislation that would have subjected the mortgage giant to tougher regulations before the housing bubble burst and led to a major recession. That same year, Freddie Mac donated $50,000 to $100,000 to her husband’s charity, originally called the William J. Clinton Foundation records show.

What’s Going on in Guatemala?

The Western media is curiously ignoring the month-long Guatemalan Revolution that’s already forced many ministers to resign and is now threatening to take down the President.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US covertly overthrew Guatemala's elected government in 1954, ousting President Jacobo Arbenz, and installing the first in a long line of dictators that have ruled Guatemala since. This led to a civil war that ran from 1960 to 1996, with massive atrocities committed by the US-backed military dictatorship. This may be another case of a people trying to kick out a US puppet government, which is why the corporate media will ignore it.

Labor unions and senior citizens’ groups are launching efforts to lobby House members against a bill that includes $700 million in proposed cuts to Medicare reimbursements for doctors and hospitals.

He blasted the big powers' double-standard policy on terrorism, while alleging to be pioneering war on terrorist groups.
