‘March on Moscow’ among President Poroshenko’s options to end Ukrainian crisis

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko listed a ‘march on Moscow’ among the possible scenarios for resolving the conflict in Ukraine. However, he called the implementation of the Minsk agreements “the most acceptable” way out of the crisis.

In an interview with Ukrainian TV Channel 5, President Poroshenko listed three possible scenarios that could lead to the resolution of the Ukraine crisis.

The first approach to conflict resolution, was “a decisive offensive to free the [eastern Ukrainian] region and a march on Moscow," although Poroshenko called it “irresponsible” and “foolhardy” as well as admitting the Ukrainian people did not support the move.

The border with Austria: Pole shocking relationship with the coach assaulted by immigrants

“Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria i saw a huge crowd of immigrants. With all solidarity to people in difficult circumstances I have to say that what I saw arouses horror.This huge mass of people – sorry – but it’s an absolute wilderness … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting “We want Germany”. So what, Germany is now a paradise?

I saw an elderly Italian woman in a car that was surrounded by the immigrants. They pulled her by the hair out of the car and wanted to use it to go to Germany. They tried to topple the bus i was in. They threw feces at us, banging on the door for the driver to open it, spat on the glass. My question is- for what purpose? How do they want to assimilate in Germany? For a moment, i felt like in a warzone. I really feel sorry for these people, but if they would reach Poland – I do not think they would receive any understanding from us.

TV Releases Video of CIA Agents Staging a 'Cross-Dressing' Show in Moscow

While the work of operatives is generally kept secretive, occasional slips do occur, such as in the case of Ryan Fogle, arrested in Moscow in 2013 and Anna Chapman in New York in 2010, leading to widespread interest in the general public. The case of the three alleged CIA operatives attracted interest after it was found that one of them, a white man, disguised himself as a black woman using a photographic mask and a heavy jacket.

"Over the past year, security services exposed 290 foreign agents, their activities were suppressed in one way or another. This did not necessarily mean arraignment, or arrest, it could be deportation through diplomatic channels and other methods of suppressing their intelligence activities," Russian author and intelligence service expert Oleg Khlobustov told the channel.

Warning: Don’t Share This Article, Facebook Might Ban You!

Facebook has said it will remove content in support of violent or criminal organizations. The company also throws out the word “terrorists.”

Being an international company, Facebook will end up being the arbitrator of which groups are terrorists and which groups are freedom fighters.

Which side is okay to support in Ukraine? Is it ok to support or condone Palestinians? What about Anonymous, the “cyber-terrorist” collective? Supporting the protesters in Ferguson? Russian dissidents speaking out against Putin? What about supporting the US military, which has been called a terrorist organization by other countries?

Facebook has decided to become the world’s censor. This may end up being the final nail in the coffin of a social media outlet that has seen users flee from other idiotic policies.

In addition to a ban on supporting organizations that Facebook has decided it doesn’t like, the social media giant has decided it’s time to protect the politicians they have bought.

Drivers Fighting Back Against Traffic Ticket Revenue Schemes

LibertyFight.com regularly receives e-mails from readers who are pissed off about traffic tickets and want to fight them. I received emails this week from two California women who had fought their tickets and beat them in court. After getting several extensions which dragged it out for over a year, the witness for the prosecution (the cop) didn't show up! A little effort goes a long way in this regard. Using the state's own 'laws' and procedures against them, such as getting the maximum number of extensions and opting for a trial by declaration, can greatly increase the chances of beating that revenue ticket.

Winston Peters: Tell male refugees to go back and fight

New Zealand should take only women and children refugees from Syria and tell the men to return home and fight, NZ First leader Winston Peters says.

Asked about the Government's decision to bring in an emergency intake of 600 Syrian refugees over three years, Mr Peters reiterated his position that more refugees should be settled - but only if immigration levels were significantly reduced.

"I think we can do better, but we can't do that while we've got mass immigration. And if we're going to do it, let's bring the women and children and tell some of the men to go back and fight for their own country's freedom, like we are," Mr Peters said.

Why the Elite are Orchestrating so Many Amateur False Flag Shootings

Waking Times

The recent spate of amateurish false flag shootings, which are now being rolled out at an increasingly rapid pace, give one cause to wonder: why? Why are the elite orchestrating such feeble and poorly executed false flag shootings? With all their money, power, control of the media, control of law enforcement and control of politicians, why can’t they make these false flag shootings look more real? Aren’t they worried that with such amateurish false flag shootings they are running the risk of being caught? Of being exposed? Of doing such an atrocious job that it defies common belief, and thus acts as a catalyst to wake people up?

The Danger Of Eliminating Cash

In the early days of central banking, one primary objective of the new system was to take ownership of the public's gold, so that in a crisis the public would be unable to withdraw it. Gold was to be replaced by fiat cash which could be issued by the central bank at will. This removed from the public the power to bring a bank down by withdrawing their property. A primary, if unspoken, objective of modern central banking is to do the same with fiat cash itself.

Fox News Doesn’t Get it, Blames Russia for Refugee Crisis in EU

DC has lost it....totally!

There is one thing Fox News has learned to do well over the years — that's to blame Russia for all the bad stuff that happens in the world. The Syrian war breaks out — quick to blame the Russians, the US government organized a coup in Ukraine — of course the Russians were behind it, the channel screams. What's next, Fox News? Perhaps the Russians also started the Ebola virus or were behind the extinction of the dinosaurs?

This time, it was no different after Fox News decided to tackle the refugee crisis in Europe. KT McFarland, a Fox News National Security Analyst invited to talk on the issue, was quick to blame… that's right, none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin for creating the refugee crisis in Europe.

A Kaspersky Lab representative said in an emailed statement Monday that the vulnerability was a stack overflow and was patched within 24 hours of the company receiving the report. The fix has already been distributed to customers via automatic updates.

Porn app promised users videos then secretly took pictures of them while they watched

An Android app that has been found that claimed to offer porn and instead just took pictures of users, before threatening to make them public if they did not hand over cash.

The “Adult Player” app lures users into downloading it by claiming to be a pornographic video player. But users that open it instead see a picture of themselves, and a message demanding that they pay $500 (£330).

The software locks the phone so that users can only see the note and nothing else, whatever they do. It presents itself as a message from the FBI — including a log of the IP address and an apparent case number — and tells users that they have been fined $500.

The screen will stay on screen even if users turn off the phone and turn it back on.

Events on the ground and planned show America, Britain, Canada, France, perhaps other Western countries and Israel likely intend using phony war on ISIS and the refugee flood caused by regional conflicts as a pretext for full-scale war on Syria - to topple Assad and replace him and his government with a US-controlled stooge regime, the same old imperial plot.

This from a 2010 Genie Energy press release:

Claude Pupkin, CEO of Genie Oil and Gas, commented, “Genie’s success will ultimately depend, in part, on access to the expertise of the oil and gas industry and to the financial markets.

"Blatant interference into the affairs of Middle Eastern countries has already led to the emergence of an instability zone in the close proximity to the European continent. Terrorism and extremism threats have considerably grown," she said. "Some people try to artificially drag Russia into this by disseminating fabrications and falsifications, possibly with the aim to put partial responsibility on us for the tragedy of the Middle Eastern region and threat to European and international stability," the diplomat stressed.

PUTIN NOW ‘ON THE OFFENSIVE’ IN SYRIAN CONFLICT – GERMAN NEWSPAPER

Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized Western foreign policy in the Middle East but is ready to cooperate with the US to establish peace in the region, German newspaper Deutsche Witschafts Nachrichten said on Sunday.

According to the newspaper, Putin’s rhetoric could mean that he is “going on the offensive” in the Syrian conflict by saying that Moscow is ready to help Western countries in the fight against the Islamic State. However, he also claimed that the West was not without its share of the blame for the Syrian conflict.

“In Russia, we have even several years ago said that if our so-called Western partners conduct erroneous policies in regions of the Muslim world, in the Middle East and North Africa, this will lead to large-scale issues,” Putin said on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"According to the newspaper, Putin’s rhetoric could mean that he is “going on the offensive” in the Syrian conflict by saying that Moscow is ready to help Western countries in the fight against the Islamic State."

How in the world could what Putin said be so misinterpreted, unless Isis has been created, and guided, by US foreign policy as a foil to attempt to get the US public to consent to more boots on the ground in the Middle East?!?

FLASHBACK - Reality Check: Is There A Link Between Mass Shootings and Anti-Depressants?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to go past the mass shootings and suicides linked to prescription anti-depressants.

It is time to ask if there is a link between prescription anti-depressants and non-fatal (no newsworthy) acts of violence. The per-capita incidence of domestic violence has increased right alongside the increase in use of prescription anti-depressants!

It is time to ask if there is a link between prescription anti-depressants and police violence.

It is time to ask if there is a link between prescription anti-depressants and poor decision making in government and finance.

It is time to ask if there is a link between prescription anti-depressants and the epidemic of child sexual abuse that is spreading across the globe!

U.S. Drops Bombs; EU Gets Refugees & Blame. This is insane

Starting in 2011 in Libya, the United States dropped bombs on Libya in order to replace its pro-Russian dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. The EU is now tearing itself apart with guilt-feelings at European nations’ responses to the refugee-crisis that was caused by this American bombing-campaign in Libya, and then by the one in Syria. Europe has also received refugees from the American-sponsored bombing-campaign in eastern Ukraine (the bombing-campaign that the 2014 American-installed anti-Russian Ukrainian government calls an ‘Anti-Terrorist Operation,’ or ‘ATO,’ which labels the residents in that pro-Russian area — where the residents reject the February 2014 U.S. coup — as ‘Terrorists’ and thus as being suitable to be bombed, and even firebombed).

Mind Blowing Temperature Fraud From NASA In Greenland

GHCN temperatures for Nuuk, Greenland show a sharp cooling trend over the past decade, of more than 3°C

NASA data is based on GHCN, so it should be the same. But they don’t show much cooling over the past decade.

They accomplished this through a spectacular hockey stick of data tampering, which has raised recent temperatures more than 2.5 degrees relative to the 1960’s.

But the fraud is much worse than it seems. Over the past four years, GISS has also wiped out Greenland’s warm past. Greenland is much cooler now than it was 75 years ago, and NASA has to hide that fact in order to keep their fraudulent Greenland meltdown story intact.

Palestinian Mother Dies fromIsraeli Settler Inflicted Immolation

On July 31, racist Israeli settlers set the Dawabsha family home ablaze, burning 18-month-old old Ali Saad Dawabsha to death, inflicting third-degree burns (the most severe kind) on three other family members - his mother, father and brother Ahmed aged four.

The incident reflects a culture of virtual impunity. Extremist settlers rampage unaccountably against Palestinians, committing near-daily acts of violence and vandalism.

The Dawabsha family lost their home. Baby Ali was burned alive in the blaze, his charred body incinerated beyond recognition.

His father Saad perished days later. He couldn’t recover from third-degree burns covering 80% of his body.

On September 5, Maan News reported his wife, Riham, deteriorated seriously, “leaving her in critical condition, her family said…”

Over 55s at risk of shock 70pc tax bill on pension cash

Thousands of older savers who use the new pension freedoms to pay off debts could be forced to pay 70pc tax on withdrawals they expected to be tax-free if they continue to save for retirement, pension experts have warned.

A little-known quirk in the rules designed to prevent pensioners abusing the tax system means that even over?55s with modest pensions are at risk of unwittingly breaking official savings limits. Tweaks which mean the rules now affect far more people were quietly made in April this year.

BEX ALERT - “Hillary panic” is spreading: Can she fend off Bernie, those stupid emails and that deepening sense of doom?

It’s not entirely fair to say that Clinton’s current moment of crisis is self-inflicted, and indeed the situation is so murky that it’s not entirely clear this is a crisis, in political terms, rather than a somewhat predictable if angsty hiccup near the beginning of a long campaign. I seem to recall that she is related to someone whose political death knell was sounded repeatedly, and who displayed a Dracula-like aptitude for clawing his way out of the tomb. But one aspect of the distorting effect that both Hillary Clinton and her husband have on the political environment is the way they attract all kinds of bad stuff, which then sticks to them and cannot easily be scraped off. They’re like human magnets for evil thoughts and evil deeds, covered with Velcro and coated in molasses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the start of a campaign by Hillary's supporters to declare the email scandal a non-crisis and consign it to the dim and murky history of ... last week. Hillary's protectors said the same thing about the Cattle Futures trades that started her fortune. "It's ancient history; let us focus on the future!" They said the same thing about the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster. They said the same thing about the Clinton links to the Iran/Contra gun and drug-running operation from Arkansas to Nicaragua. They said the same thing about Whitewater, Flowerwood, Castle Grande, Madison Guarantee, and the Arkansas Development Finance Authority being used to launder the CIA's proceeds from that operation (while trying to keep the focus on a stained blue dress). They said the same thing about the travel office firings, China-gate, Blood-gate, Hillary's vicious attacks on Bill Clinton's sexual victims, and Benghazi. Always it is, "That was yesterday. Forget it. Nothing to see. Stop living in the past!"

But our present was built in the past. And if that past was corrupt then so is the present.

The Hillary email scandal is not going away, in part because there may be larger scandals lurking behind it! The first is the now-documented fact that even as the US Governent insists that Al Qaeda and ISIS are our enemies in the War on Terror, the US was sending weapons from Libya to Syria to arm Al Qaeda and ISIS against Syria's legitimate government, using the consulate in Benghazi as the hub of the operation. The second scandal lurking behind Hillary's server might even be worse!

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

Greek coastguards seize huge shipment of arms and ammo 'bound for Libya'

A huge stash of weapons and ammunition has been found hidden aboard a cargo ship understood to be bound for Libya.

Greek authorities seized 5,000 shotguns and half a million rounds of ammunition found aboard the Haddad 1, a coast guard official said on Wednesday.

Videos released by the Hellenic Coast Guard show officers uncovering the arms, which it said had no accompanying documents and were concealed by furniture and gym mats.

Benjamin Netanyahu rejects calls for Israel to take in more refugees – and pledges to build 18-mile border fence instead

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dismissed an urgent call from his opposition leader to "not be apathetic" in the face of desperate Syrian refugees.

The leader of the ruling right-wing Likud Party said Israel was "not indifferent" to the fates of families fleeing persecution from its northern neighbour - which it considers an enemy state - but that the country was not big enough to take them.

He has instead announced that a new 18-mile fence will be built along the frontier with Jordan, Reuters has reported.

White House: Russian Military Action Against ISIS in Syria Would be 'Destabilizing'

Today's lesson in how propaganda works: The rumor mill turns a trickle of a story early this week about "thousands" of Russian soldiers deploying to Syria any day -- a wholly unsourced story originating on an Israeli website -- into a torrent of hyperventilating about the "Russian invasion" of Syria.

Today neocon convicted felon Eliot Abrams took to the Council on Foreign Relations website to amplify the Israeli article (again with no sources or evidence) to a whole new and more dramatic article ominously titled "Putin in Syria." Abrams adds "reporting" by Michael Weiss, who has long been on the payroll of viscerally anti-Putin oligarch Michael Khodorkovsky, without revealing the obvious bias in the source. Never mind, all Weiss adds to Abrams' argument is that the Pentagon is "cagey" about discussing Russian involvement in Syria before again referencing the original (unsourced) Israeli article.

Jewish High Court Demands Pope Francis Apologise for Recognising Palestinian State

A self-declared Israeli Sanhedrin, a religious High Court composed of 71 sages, has demanded that Pope Francis apologise for recognising a separate Palestinian state or face trial next month.

A member of the Palestinian Al-Fatah movement revolutionary council, Demetri Deliani, said the Jewish court has sent a letter to Pope Francis demanding he rescind or face trial on 20 September, and that he will be judged in absentia if he chooses to ignore the summons.

The Vatican officially recognised the State of Palestine in February 2013.

In June, the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organisation to “the state of Palestine” in a treaty that constitutes the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state.

The Hidden Forces Behind Syria’sPresident Bashar al-Assad

Just like President Vladimir Putin of Russia, Syria’s President Bashar Hafez al-Assad has been the victim of unrelenting character assassination and false reporting by the Western Mainstream Media (MSM). Many of the MSM outlets throughout the Anglo-American Axis (AAA) have published one false story after another in a concerted effort to turn the entire world against him. And for what?

Why are they so determined to overthrow one of the very few righteous leaders in the Middle East?

In the spring of 1939, a few months before Nazi Germany's invasion of Poland, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, an ultra-right political organization seeking to achieve Ukraine's independence via violence and terrorism, formed a military unit which planned to assist the Germans in their invasion. Alas, history turned out differently.

IF YOU THINK THAT WAS A CRASH….

Last week’s volatility to the downside was entirely predictable, as the first leg down during this ongoing market crash reached the correction stage of 11%. The technical bounce was a given, as the 30 year old HFT MBAs on Wall Street have been trained like rats to BTFD. In their lemming like minds, it has worked for the last six years of this Federal Reserve created “bull market”, so why wouldn’t it work now. Last week was their first lesson in why it doesn’t work during bear markets, and we’ve entered a bear market. John Hussman seems amused at the shallowness of the arguments by Wall Street shills and CNBC cheerleaders about the future of the stock market in his weekly letter. After this modest pullback from all-time highs, the S&P 500 is still overvalued by 92%:

NBC NEWS POLL: DONALD TRUMP DOMINATES AS JEB BUSH IMPLODES

Current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump maintains a strong lead in New Hampshire, while establishment pick Jeb Bush has steadily lost support in the early-voting Granite State, says the new NBC News/Marist poll.

Trump is 16 percentage points ahead of his closest competitor, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and has 28 percent of likely Republican voters backing him.

Dr. Ben Carson came in third place with 11 percent of the vote, while Bush dropped to fourth place at eight percent.

Bush has lost almost half his supporters in New Hampshire since July, when he was in second place behind Trump with 14 percent to Trump’s 21 percent. Since February’s, he’s lost almost two-thirds of his support, when he was at 18 percent.

Stock Market Crash 2015: The Dow Has Already Plummeted 2200 Points From The Peak

Those that watched their stocks steadily increase in value for years are now seeing all of that “wealth” disappear at a staggering pace. The only way you actually make money in the stock market is if you get out in time, and many Americans are discovering that all or most of their gains have already been wiped out. At this point, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has dipped below where it was at the end of the 2013 calendar year. That means that nearly two years of gains have already been obliterated. On Friday, the Dow was down another 272 points, and it is now down more than 2200 points from the peak of the market back in May. For months, I have been detailing how things were setting up for this kind of financial crash in textbook fashion, and now events are playing out just as I warned. But this is just the beginning – what is coming next is going to shock the world.

Republican donors, strategists plot to take Trump down: Report

How can we stop Donald Trump? This is a question Republican Party donors and strategists have been asking themselves for weeks, a report says.

The GOP’s biggest donors are planning to invest scores of millions of dollars in a campaign to take Trump down, the New York Times reported.

Republican strategists and donors have gathered groups to launch a smear campaign against Trump and amassed dossiers on his previous support for universal health care and higher taxes, the Times report published on Friday said.

They have even discussed to establish a “super PAC” in order to convince conservative voters that the New York billionaire is not one of them.

But the big-money Republican network is also extremely worried that any concerted attack against Trump might backfire, given his tendency to counterattack viciously.
