America’s Great Lie. Europe’s Great Shame. Russia’s Great Case

The West owes Russia a hell of a lot; but what it owes Russia first is a deep apology, and a welcome into Europe, of which Russia has been and is an extremely important nation, and very unjustly denied its rightful place there. What doesn’t belong in Europe is the U.S., not in any way whatsoever, especially since the U.S. is now a dictatorship. (Anyone who says it’s not a dictatorship and who doesn’t click onto that link to find out that he’s been snookered to think it’s still a democracy, should just stop reading here right now, because this aricle is going to be suitable only for people with open, critical, inquiring minds — not for closed-minded or stupid readers.)

Corporate media bigotry of ‘Muslims’ could easily apply to ‘Americans;’ same history as Jews, Blacks, Protestants, Catholics, women, gays, lefties

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

bigotry: habitual state of mind with obstinate, irrational, and/or unfair intolerance of ideas, ethnicities, or beliefs different from one’s own. Etymology: “religious hypocrite.”

In the Now’s 2-minute video compilation of CNN orchestrating blame of all Muslims for terrorism:


Earth’s history includes bigotry against religions, ethnicities, women, gays, and even left-handed people. This uncontested history is so well-documented and uncontested that I won’t bother to provide links. Because bigotry lives in irrational language, the same attacks on Muslims the above video reveals from corporate media could just as easily be applied to another group: “Americans.”

On the Nobility of Jews: Practical Idealism and Communism

The main representatives of the corrupt as well as the upright brain aristocracy: of capitalism, journalism and the literate are Jews.
The superiority of their spirit predestines them to become a main factor of the future nobility.
One look at the history of the Jewish people explains its lead in the struggle over the governance of humanity. For two thousand years Jewry was a religious community, made up of ethical and religious predisposed individuals from all nations of the classical cultural area, with a national Hebrew centre in Palestine..

Anonymous Publishes List of ISIS Targets for Sunday Attacks

By Joe Wright

Hacktivist group Anonymous has declared all-out cyber war on ISIS following the Paris terror attacks. #OpParis went live just days ago, which involved Anonymous issuing a guide to the world on how to disrupt ISIS recruiting via social media. Despite documenting their results of over 20,000 hacked ISIS Twitter accounts, some US officials appeared dismissive of the tactics saying it would only be nothing more than an “annoyance.”

However, it appears that the U.S. government is now paying closer attention to what Anonymous is saying...

Congressman Chides Refugees, Says If He Were Syrian, He Would Stay and Fight

Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., appearing on talk radio this week to discuss his opposition to resettling Syrian refugees, said the “first thing” that needs to be done is to “get away from” referring to the individuals fleeing Syria as “refugees.”

Perry explained that while “some of them” are leaving a civil war, he would have stayed.

“With all due respect, if there’s a civil war in my country, I stay and fight for my country,” Perry said during a discussion with Clarence M. Mitchell IV, known as “C4,” the host of a program carried by WBAL radio in Baltimore.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I made the same comment about the illegal immigrants.

We keep hearing that the illegals are fleeing oppressive government in their own lands. Why they would think life will be any better here is a mystery as the US now ranks 36th on the global freedom scale, pretty much at the bottom of all industrialized nations.

But let us look at history for how to deal with a repressive regime.

When the British discovered that King Charles 1 had hired Scottish troops to oppress the British people, the British didn't swim across the English Channel to France and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested the King and cut off his head! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the French living under King Louise XVI realized their were being systematically looted by the French monarchy, they didn't swim across the English Channel to Britain and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested the King and sent him and his money-junky friends to the guillotine! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the Italian people realized that Benito Mussolini had gotten them into a war on the side that was going to lose, the Italians didn't flock to the border of Austria and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested Mussolini and shot him! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the Romanians lived under a repressive regime, they didn't flock to the border with Serbia and scream "Let us in! Let us in!" They took responsibility for the future of their nation, and machine-gunned Ceausescu live on Romanian National TV. Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

We the people of the United States are not responsible to make the lives of Bolivians, Nicaraguans, Peruvians, Brazilians, etc. better. We have plenty of our own problems. Our current government doesn't even want to take care of America's homeless and hungry who are LEGAL citizens!

So, instead of flocking to our borders and screaming "Let us in! Let us in", maybe you need to man-up, show some courage, and fix your own problems.

That being said, Scott Perry seems to be unaware that many of the refugees pouring into Europe have admitted they were lured to Europe with promises of lots of free stuff being made by the various Soros-sponsored NGOs fueling this migration. Promises which have not been kept, which is adding to the hostility and friction.

Now we know better; the government is spying on everyone, by every means possible. We The people must be quite powerful, if the government is that afraid of us! But I digress.

"I said to other lenders there are other conditions to be met or you will not receive the debt. The basic condition is reducing debt by 20%, the transfer of all debts of four years. If you do not like this, then you will receive the decision of the government of Ukraine via a moratorium on paying Russia the $3 billion.

Fourteen African countries, the former French colonies, although they have long gained independence, are still paying tribute to his colonizer - France!

When Sekou Toure in 1958 decided to liberate Guinea from colonial bondage and take the road to independence, the elite in Paris was so furious that it decided to destroy all that her administration has created in that country. Three thousand Frenchmen shortly after that fled Guinea bringing with them all the assets that they could carry, and destroying everything that they could not take with them: schools, kindergartens, public buildings, cars, tractors ... Some have even leaving poisoned horses and cows on their farms and food in warehouses destroyed. The meaning of this furious act was to send a message to other French colonies that the price of their emancipation will be very high.

In a letter to the Prime Minister's Office earlier in the week, the Shurat Hadin Israel Law Center warned that the government was actively aiding the perpetuation of Hamas rule in Gaza, despite its own stated policies.

Poison DUst: Health Consequences of Depleted Uranium Home and Abroad [Full Film]

Poison DUst: Health Consequences of Depleted Uranium Home and Abroad tells the story of young soldiers who thought they came home safely from the war, but didn't. Of a veteran's young daughter whose birth defect is strikingly similar to birth defects suffered by many Iraqi children. Of thousands of young vets who are suffering from the symptoms of uranium poisoning, and the thousands more who are likely to find themselves with these ailments in the years to come. Of a government unwilling to admit there might be a problem here. Filmmaker Sue Harris skillfully weaves the stories of these young veterans with scientific explanations of the nature of "DU" and its dangers, including interviews with former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, New York Daily News reporter Juan Gonzalez, noted physicist Michio Kaku, Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Dr. Helen Caldicott and Major Doug Rokke- the former U.S. Army DU Project head. Every American who cares about our troops should watch this film. Everyone who cares about the innocent civilians who live in the countries where these weapons are used should watch this film. And everyone who cares about the hatred of Americans that may result from the effects of our government's actions in using these weapons, should watch this film. Is there a cover-up?

For Activists, Information Is Not Free

Just because it’s called the Freedom of Information Act, doesn’t mean the information is free. In fact, if you’re an activist or a journalist trying to investigate the police, chances are it’s going to cost you, as reporters discovered last year when they tried to obtain documents pertaining to the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

In their efforts to report the story, reporters were being charging exorbitant fees for records that are supposed to be released to the media for free. Missouri has an open records law, yet according to the Associated Press, news agencies were being charged thousands of dollars, “nearly ten times the cost of a government employee's salary" to retrieve government records.

The House Science Committee Chair is harassing US climate scientists

Lamar Smith has targeted government climate change researchers with a subpoena that demands all their notes and correspondence relating to a recent study

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How is requesting copies of taxpayer funded research "harassment?"

A foundation of scientific method is reproducibility. That is, if scientist A conducts and experiment or an analysis, scientist B can can take the raw data, follow the procedure, and reproduce the same result. That principle exists to guarantee the accuracy of the results. However, it has become the hallmark of the promoters of human-caused global warming that reproducibility is to be avoided at all costs, with examples such as the Hadley Climate Change Unit at the University of East Anglia erasing all their raw data, claiming they didn't have room on their computer hard drive, to the current case where NOAA is refusing to provide the documents leading to their issuance of a report stating that there has been no pause in global warming at all, despite several record setting winters since 2000, when the Carbonazis declared "Snowfalls Are Now Just a Thing of the Past" in the UK Independent, March 20, 2000. (Don't bother looking at the UK independent website; the article has been "Orwellized.")

The Royal Astronomical Society confirms the sun is heading into a repeat of the Maunder Minimum, a period of lower output which triggered the Little Ice Age from 1300 to 1870. A whistleblower with NOAA itself revealed that many NOAA scientists disagreed with the NOAA report and thought it was issued solely to support the case for imposing a carbon tax on the American people by a desperately broke and hopeless in debt US Government.

Given all of this, it is prudent and valid to want to look at the process by which this report came to be issued, and this is a proper function of Congressional oversight, not "harassment!"

Comments from New York Times readers regarding Jonathan Pollard’s forthcoming release:

Pollard betrayed his country and the sacred trust it placed in him. He seems to be totally unrepentant. His crimes were motivated by allegiance to another nation.

The Power behind the Throne

Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family. The programme educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled. The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in the world.

Off Your Knees, Germany! Ernst Zundel 1983 - 2003 (Full Video)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason for the Holocaust hoax is simple. The world had just united against Nazi Germany on the principle that one nation does not have the right to march into another nation and steal it for their own. But the founders of Israel proposed to do just that, march into Palestine and take it for their own. They needed a propaganda device so powerful it would trick the world into allowing Israel to do to Palestine exactly what Nazi Germany had been prevented from doing to France, Poland, etc. And that propaganda remains one of the most fiercely protected secrets of modern times, enforced by laws in many nations.

And that in and of itself betrays the lie, for truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

People unlikely to change their mind, even when facts contradict their views - study

A fresh study has confirmed that people are reluctant to change their minds and adapt their views, even when new information has been presented. This holds true even if they stand to lose money.

The research from the University of Iowa is based on previous studies indicating that people are particularly likely to stick to their original viewpoint when they’ve had to write their beliefs down– a phenomenon known as the ‘explanation effect’, which also affects future actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not new. In fact this is the reason religion and government grab children as young as they can to indoctrinate them with beliefs that serve the church and state, knowing that as people get older, their identities grow up around those beliefs, locking them in place. Beliefs are chains used to hold free minds in slavery. No chains of steel ever bound a human tighter than the chains made of beliefs.

Venezuelan President Calls NSA Spying On State Oil Company “Vulgar,” Orders Official Inquiry

Venezuela will conduct a “comprehensive review of relations with the United States” and submitted a formal protest over new evidence that the National Security Agency spied on state-owned oil company Petróleos de Venezuela, the country’s president announced.

President Nicolas Maduro spoke about the latest spying revelations at an event late Wednesday night. Earlier in the day, The Intercept and teleSUR jointly published reports, based on a top-secret document provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, detailing how the intelligence agency gained large-scale access to PDVSA’s internal computer network and successfully targeted top executives for electronic surveillance.

Hillary Clinton equates ISIS and Hamas

The argument that the U.S. and the west are finally undertaking the war Israel has been fighting for years is of course a major theme of pro-Israel commentary post Paris. Militant Israeli policies re Palestinian resistance are being offered as a role model to the west; and the Palestinian political party Hamas is being put on the same plane as ISIS– a longstanding propaganda claim of the Israeli prime minister, or as long as ISIS has been in the news.

Hillary Clinton echoed that point in her Council on Foreign Relations speech yesterday:

In September I laid out a comprehensive plan to counter Iranian influence across the region and its support for terrorist proxies such as Hezbollah and Hamas. We cannot view Iran and ISIS as separate challenges. Regional politics are too interwoven. Raising the confidence of our Arab partners and raising the costs to Iran for bad behavior will contribute to a more effective fight against ISIS.

It had taken just 23 days for the French to retake most of a swath of territory that for nine months had been proclaimed the Islamic Republic of Azawad, occupied by al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (Aqim) and its allies.

Ex-CIA Chief: Bush and Cheney Knew 9/11 Was Imminent, Concealed Intelligence

A new report from POLITICO corroborates a suspicion long held by critics of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. It affirms the former president and vice president not only had intelligence warning the terror attacks of 9/11 were imminent, but that they repeatedly ignored the CIA’s warnings. The most shocking assertion is that Bush and Cheney actively attempted to hide the paper trail documenting the fact that the evidence was presented to them.

Russia to push for adoption of its draft antiterror resolution in UN Security Council

Russia will push for the soonest possible adoption of its draft resolution on the fight against terrorism in the United Nations Security Council despite the adoption of a France-proposed document, Russia’s Permanent Representaive to the global organization Vitaly Churkin said Friday.

He said the attempt by "some members of the Council" to block the document submitted for the Security Council consideration in September is "politically shortsighted".

"It’s impossible to fight terrorists with one hand and actually play along with them with the other while being guided by opportunistic reasons. We plan to continue active work to coordinate our draft for it to be adopted as soon as possible," Churkin said.

False Flag Alert! Obama Caught Smuggling in Refugees on UPS Planes?

Is history repeating itself? Is Obama circumventing the law once again to bring in refugees, just like he did with the “refugees” from South America who were actually given rides on D.H.S. buses for protection???

Without knowing precisely what is going on, there is no doubt something nefarious is afoot. There is no reason for 30 buses of people to be flying on a UPS flight designated for parcels, under the cover of night, filled with people, who are met on arrival with buses already waiting, and whisked away in secret.

2-minute video: Criminal corporate media blame ALL Muslims for terrorism

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: InvestmentWatch


In the Now’s 2-minute video of CNN orchestrating blame of all Muslims for terrorism spins the claim that if Muslims were more responsible, then “they” would catch terrorists before any attack. Corporate media, of course, must lie to ignore:

history of over 40 false flag attacks admitted by governments to blame intended targets for offensive war,
armed attack upon Syria and all other current targets are Orwellian unlawful Wars of Aggression: the worst crime a nation can commit,
all “reasons” reported by corporate media from political “leaders” for current wars are now confirmed by official government documentation as lies known to be lies as they were told,
the 2013 “terrorist attack” on Syria was committed by US and Turkey government sources as a false flag for “regime change” in Syria,

Insurers tell Walmart they’re not paying Tracy Morgan crash settlements

Walmart’s private fleet has sued a group of insurance companies for refusing to pay the retail giant’s settlements with victims, including actor Tracy Morgan, in the high-profile June 2014 crash on the New Jersey turnpike that left one person dead and several others severely injured. The crash occurred the morning of June 7, 2014, when Walmart driver Kevin Roper allegedly dozed off before rear-ending a Mercedes Sprinter van carrying Morgan, McNair and about half a dozen others. Roper has been charged with vehicular homicide. The National Transportation Safety Board in its review of the crash determined Roper had slept just four hours in the 33 hours preceding the fatal collision. He drove 800 miles in his personal car the night before from Georgia to Delaware before beginning his on-duty time the morning of the crash.

Rand Paul: End Subsidized Housing For New People Who Come Here From The Middle East, Except For Israelis

On the very week that convicted Israeli Spy Jonathan Pollard was released from prison, Senator Rand Paul introduced an amendment in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, which would prevent certain refugees from receiving public housing aide. Paul's proposal includes the list of 34 'high risk' middle-east countries, including basically all the countries on the PNAC 'New Pearl Harbor' document, and a few others. Paul's list of dangerous countries includes Syria, Iran, Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and of course the obligatory 'Palestinian Territories.' Guess which country is omitted from Paul's list?? Keep in mind that this is the same week that mainstream Jewish newspapers admitted that Israel had advance warnings of the Nov 13th Paris terrorist attacks, just like they did the attacks on New York on 9/11/01.

Senior Iranian Cleric: ISIL Created to Confront Islam, Muslims

Tehran’s provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami blasted certain western countries and their regional allies for supporting the terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, and said the Takfiri terrorist groups have been created to taint the image of Islam and promote the Islamophobia project. "The ISIL and other Takfiri groups have been created to fight Islam; these heinous phenomena were created when the Islamic awakening was underway in Muslim countries." He reiterated that the Takfiri terrorist groups, including the ISIL, have not even said a word against Israel, and even Israel accepts and treats their wounded in its hospitals... Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined that any discord and conflict between Muslims merely gladdens the Zionists and the criminal powers, adding that the Islamic world needs unity more than any ever.

Everyday fascism: a stroll through Lvov

Much is said about the role of Ukrainian media in zombifying the population, but there no one talks about the influence of the Greco-Catholic Church on the masses. I went to the morning service at the first cathedral and barely survived the first five minutes. The bishop spoke of the eternal enemy who has come to capture the territory of Ukraine, the cowardly president who fled to Russia, and the necessity of taking up arms. The bishop’s speech resembled a pre-election propaganda speech of people’s deputy candidates, not the monologue of a priest. The cathedral was packed, and Lvov residents, with mouths wide open, listened to the bishop and took everything that he said at face value. Lvov residents are subjected to powerful ideological indoctrination not even counting the press. The people of Galicia are a religious folk and the word of a bishop is more important to them words from a TV presenter...

According to the defense department representative, punitive forces are coming into houses, forcing people to collect their things, allowing only one bag, and are throwing them into buses which taken them in the direction of Artemovsk.

Obama administration uses gays in international political games

The Izvestia newspaper has recently published an article about how someone was trying to discredit Russian officials and entrepreneurs by throwing shadow on their sexual orientation. "The first violin" was given to Russia's LGBT activist Nikolai Alekseyev. Making reference to the correspondence between US officials and Alekseyev, the Izvestia concluded that it was a targeted campaign to discredit the Russian officials. "For now your main target will be first deputy of government," the Russian paper claimed the letter said. "However, your main line of work, as we see it, will be to provoke [the deputy into] too overly emotional reaction to [mentions] of the LGBT-community in Russia," the newspaper cited one of such letters. The publication also said that the correspondence was exposed to the public as a result of a hacker attack.

Perfect Russia for the West: Kneeled and in tatters

Putin's proposals to the West do not demonstrate flattery or ambition. First off, Vladimir Putin is a statesman. Secondly, he is a believer. Therefore, on the domestic level, he remains united with "partners", and on the external level, he educates them. There is one goal: to preserve the civilization, in which the Russians will feel absolutely insured and protected against the destruction of their state. As for the West, the biggest problem of the West is not Russia or Putin. The problem of the West is about the loss of its future. The Western empire is collapsing from within owing to its own immorality and "exceptionalism." By the way, this exceptionalism is nothing else but pride, a grave sin in Christianity.

Russia to seek compensation from Baltic States for Soviet medicine, education, reconstruction

Members of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation appealed to the Ministry for Justice and Ministry for Foreign Affairs with a proposal to submit counterclaims against the Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia). It goes about the attempt of the Baltic States to seek financial compensation from Russia for the so-called "Soviet occupation." To crown it all, the official Latvian authorities urged Russian President Vladimir Putin "to apologize for the occupation of the Baltic States during the Second World War." The Latvian government provisionally evaluated the "damage" at € 300 billion, the Estonian government - $49 billion, and the Lithuanian - at $28billion. The Russian MPs refer to the compensation of the Russian Empire to Sweden in the XVIII century for Livonia (today Estonia. - Ed.), as well as the amount paid to Duke of Courland for Courland (the territory of present-day Latvia. - Ed.). The deputies say that the amounts are currently evaluated at $100bn and $30bn.
