S-300

- Europe Will Be Very Angry When It Learns Greece Is About To Buy Russian Anti-Aircraft Missiles (ZeroHedge, April 15, 2015):

Just days after Russia lifted sanctions on providing anti-aircraft missiles to Iran, Reuters reports that The Greeks are in talks with Russia to purchase missiles for the S-300 defense system. Greece, a NATO member, has been in possession of the advanced Russian-made systems since the late 1990s and in a defiant show of independence towards Troika, is now negotiating with Russia for the purchase of additional missiles and for their maintenance.

- Ahead Of Varoufakis’ Meeting With Famous Sovereign Bankruptcy Lawyer S&P Downgrades Greece To CCC+ (ZeroHedge, April 15, 2015):

To think it was just recently in September of last year when the S&P, seemingly unaware of the tragic reality facing Greece in just a few months (by reality we meen democratic elections which overthrew the previous regime which was merely a group of Troika picked technocrats), upgraded Greece to B and said “The upgrade reflects our view that risks to fiscal consolidation in Greece have abated.” Well, the risks have unabated, and two months after S&P flipflopped and downgraded Greece back to B- on February 6, moments ago it downgraded it again, this time to triple hooks, aka the dreaded CCC+. But, as City AM reports, the biggest news is that the Greek Finance Minister will on Friday meet with infamous sovereign debt lawyer Lee Buchheit, who has helped numerous countries restructure their debt. Buchheit is a partner at top US law firm Cleary Gottlieb.

Hillary:

“I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record …There is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are.”

Fact is that (NON-GMO) wheat & barley seeds have a ‘proven track record’ that is thousands of years old and have been found in the great pyramids …

.. aaaand those seeds were still sprouting (!!!) …

unlike GMO seeds.

Speaking of track records …

- Flashback: Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Supports Monsanto (Infowars, April 13, 2015)

As Hillary Clinton gears up to enter the 2016 presidential race as announced today by her beyond viral Twitter post, we are reminded of her 2014 public appearance – in which she announced public support of Monsanto’s GMO seeds and chemicals. Chemicals that have recently been confirmed by the WHO to be causing cancer.

In the 65-minute keynote appearance at the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego, Clinton conversed with Jim Greenwood, BIO president, on a wide range of topics including GMOs. She said:

“I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record …There is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are.”

Clinton also remarked that the “benefits” of GMOs should be better explained in order to counteract the massive grassroots tide against the lab-created crops, saying that “Frankensteinish” depictions should be met with a stronger, more positive spin from GMO companies.

- Caught On Tape: Arizona Police Cruiser Runs Over Suspect At 50 mph (ZeroHedge, April 14, 2015):

It has not been a good month for police “infractions” caught on tape: whether it is a cop shooting an unarmed suspect just because, or a cop shooting an unarmed suspect because “a taser was confused with a gun”, the latest grotesque act caught on dashcam is the following video taken on February 19 showing a police cruiser slamming into an alleged crime suspect, Mario Valencia, holding a gun (however not aiming it at anyone and certainly not the police) at a speed of about 50 mph from behind, in what was clearly a move intended to kill the suspect.

Miraculously, the suspect survived. Ironically, the Police in Marana, Arizona, where the dashcam video was taken, claim that they saved the suspect’s life. His lawyer, understandably, strongly disagrees.

“Everything in the video seems to point towards an obvious excessive use of force. It is miraculous that my client isn’t dead,” said attorney Michelle Cohen-Metzger.

That said, the video of the incident has stirred debate about what type of force police should have used to detain a man with a gun. Continue reading »

- The one chart that proves Obamacare really is working (for the fascists) (ZeroHedge, April 14, 2015):

With the election cycle starting up again, we are going to be bombarded more and more with propaganda like this:  7 Charts That Prove Obamacare Is Working

I submit to you that, below, is the one chart that proves Obamacare really is working (for the fascists).

Since the Obama administration began pushing the healthcare reform bill in early 2009, the stock prices of the Big Five health insurers have done remarkably well, even vs. the S&P 500, and even without taking into account their phenomenal dividend yields.

Obamacare is working

Smoke rises from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex in this still image from video footage

- LESS THAN ONE MINUTE OF VIDEO? (Jim Stone, April 14, 2015):

Three hours shot, less than ONE MINUTE from reactor 1 made public! Just perfect when the zio clan has a LOT TO HIDE, HERE IS MY RESPONSE:

We will NEVER get truthful robot footage from Fukushima BECAUSE:

ALL REACTORS WERE SABOTAGED, AND Reactor 3 was completely ejected from containment

This must be explained clearly so you know what is going on -

Approximately a year ago, a reactor engineer persistently contacted me to the point of being a pest, saying he had found reactor 3 laying in the debris from the explosion, completely out in the open and prominently showing. He had done a full investigation and knew exactly where it left the hole when it was blown out of the containment, where it was laying, EVERYTHING about the reactor and I did not pay attention because I did not believe it, and I could not obviously see it in the photos he sent.

911-Saudi-Arabia

- The New York Post Reports – FBI is Covering Up Saudi Links to 9/11 Attack (Liberty Blitzkrieg, April 13, 2015):

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham, who in 2002 chaired the congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11, maintains the FBI is covering up a Saudi support cell in Sarasota for the hijackers. He says the al-Hijjis’ “urgent” pre-9/11 exit suggests “someone may have tipped them off” about the coming attacks.

Graham has been working with a 14-member group in Congress to urge President Obama to declassify 28 pages of the final report of his inquiry which were originally redacted, wholesale, by President George W. Bush.

“The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier,” he said, adding, “I am speaking of the kingdom,” or government, of Saudi Arabia, not just wealthy individual Saudi donors.

Sources who have read the censored Saudi section say it cites CIA and FBI case files that directly implicate officials of the Saudi Embassy in Washington and its consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks — which, if true, would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government.

– From the New York Post article: How the FBI is Whitewashing the Saudi Connection to 9/11

One of the strangest aspects of the post 9/11 period has been the number of very intelligent people who intimately appreciate and fight against the innumerable crimes and thefts committed by the American oligarchy, yet simply can’t comes to terms with the fact that the official story of September 11, 2001 is a heaping pile of bullshit. At the end of the day, I think it’s just a function of managing career risk. Having already achieved some level of public success, not many people will want to give the mainstream media the opportunity to attach “9/11 truther” to their name, thus tarnishing all the other work they do in the mind of the general public.

- Russia officially joins $50bn China-led infrastructure bank (RT, April 14, 2015):

On Tuesday Russia officially becomes a founder of the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). It means Russian companies can take part in infrastructure projects in the Asia-Pacific region, and could attract foreign investment into Russia.

Russia applied for membership as a founding member of the AIIB 2 weeks ago, along with another 52 countries. The founding members have the right to establish the rules guiding the bank’s activities. China reportedly had rejected requests from North Korea and Taiwan to join the AIIB. The final list of the bank’s founding members will be announced on April 15. Continue reading »

- Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll (RT, April 14, 2015):

In a diverse field of competitors made up of pop stars, technology gurus, visionaries and politicians – and at a time when US-Russia relations have hit rock bottom – President Putin has emerged victorious in Time magazine’s 2015 reader poll.

Among the 100 most influential people in the world, as hand selected by the editors of TIME, the Russian leader proved his rock-star credentials by edging out 24-year-old rapper Lee Chae-rin (better known by her stage name, ‘CL’) of the South Korean girl-group 2NE1 to claim the number-one spot with 6.95 percent of the votes in the final tally.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras

- Greece isn’t preparing default – Tsipras dispels rumor (RT, April 14, 2015):

Greece isn’t planning a debt default, contrary to reports in the Financial Times, says Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

“Greece … is not preparing for any debt default and the same goes for its lenders. Negotiations are proceeding swiftly towards a mutually beneficial solution,” Prime Minister Tsipras’ office said in a statement, Reuters reported.

Greece is scheduled to make several payments to the IMF in the next few months. On May 1 €203 million is due, another €770 million on May 12, and about another €1.6 billion in June in Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), an artificial currency created by the IMF that the institution uses to give out extra funds.

Greece

- “We Have Come To The End Of The Road” – Greece Prepares For Default, FT Reports (ZeroHedge, April 13, 2015):

Update: as always is the case in Europe, nothing is confirmed until it is officially denied by officials, so here you go: GREEK GOVT OFFICIAL DENIES FT REPORT GREECE PLANNING DEFAULT

There was no explanation from the government official where Greece would get the €2.5 billion it needs to fund upcoming IMF interest and principal payments.

* * *

It should hardly come as a surprise that after the latest round of Greek pre-negotiation negotiations with the Troika, in which the Greek representative was said to behave like a taxi driver, who “just asked where the money was and insisted his country would soon be bankrupt” and in which the Eurozone members “were disappointed and shocked at Athens’ lack of movement in its plans, and in particular its reluctance to talk about cutting civil servants’ pensions” that the next Greek step is to fall back – yet again – to square zero: threats of an imminent default. Which is precisely what, according to the FT, has happened “Greece is preparing to take the dramatic step of declaring a debt default unless it can reach a deal with its international creditors by the end of April, according to people briefed on the radical leftist government’s thinking.” Continue reading »

- Caught On Tape: “Oh, I Shot Him”; Deputy Shoots Man In Back After Mistaking Gun For Taser (ZeroHedge, April 13, 2015):

It seems America can scarcely get through a week without a new video of perceived police misconduct surfacing and one can only think the trend will continue as each incident only serves to reinforce the notion that law enforcement should everywhere and always be monitored if not by civilian cell phone footage then at least by dash cams that actually work and perhaps by body cams as well.

On the heels of the South Carolina “confrontation” which led to the shooting death of Walter Scott, we get a new video out of Tulsa in which one Eric Courtney Harris — who apparently sold an illegal firearm to undercover agents and who CNN compassionately describes as a “possibly PCP-addled felon” — is “accidentally” shot by a 73-old reserve deputy who apparently could not distinguish between his Taser and his glock. “Oh, I shot him, sorry” the deputy says although the other officers don’t seem to share the deputy’s remorse because when Harris (whose head is pressed between the ground and someone’s knee) says “I’m losing my breath,” the officers let him know, in no uncertain terms, that they are not concerned with his breathing.

Abraham-Lincoln-Freemason-Hidden-Hand

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

- The Power of Lies — Paul Craig Roberts (April 13, 2015):

It is one of history’s ironies that the Lincoln Memorial is a sacred space for the Civil Rights Movement and the site of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Lincoln did not think blacks were the equals of whites. Lincoln’s plan was to send the blacks in America back to Africa, and if he had not been assassinated, returning blacks to Africa would likely have been his post-war policy.

As Thomas DiLorenzo and a number of non-court historians have conclusively established, Lincoln did not invade the Confederacy in order to free the slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation did not occur until 1863 when opposition in the North to the war was rising despite Lincoln’s police state measures to silence opponents and newspapers. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war measure issued under Lincoln’s war powers. The proclamation provided for the emancipated slaves to be enrolled in the Union army replenishing its losses. It was also hoped that the proclamation would spread slave revolts in the South while southern white men were away at war and draw soldiers away from the fronts in order to protect their women and children. The intent was to hasten the defeat of the South before political opposition to Lincoln in the North grew stronger.

The Lincoln Memorial was built not because Lincoln “freed the slaves,” but because Lincoln saved the empire. As the Savior of the Empire, had Lincoln not been assassinated, he could have become emperor for life. Continue reading »

- Unworthy Victims: Western Wars Have Killed Four Million Muslims Since 1990 (Mint Press News, April 9, 2015):

Landmark research proves that the US-led ‘war on terror’ has killed as many as 2 million people, but this is a fraction of Western responsibility for deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last two decades

Last month, the Washington DC-based Physicians for Social Responsibility (PRS) released a landmark study concluding that the death toll from 10 years of the “War on Terror” since the 9/11 attacks is at least 1.3 million, and could be as high as 2 million.The 97-page report by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning doctors’ group is the first to tally up the total number of civilian casualties from US-led counter-terrorism interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
