Planned and orchestrated … civil war coming to a country near you?


- 15% of French people back ISIS militants, poll finds (RT, Aug 18, 2014): 

Up to 15 percent of French people said they have a positive attitude toward the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The share of ISIS supporters is largest among France’s younger generation, a new poll says.

Twice as many French people expressed a positive reaction to Islamic State (IS) militants than in Britain, where the number of people favorably disposed to the IS stands at 7 percent, and Germany, where a meager 2 percent of the respondents sided with the IS, according to a poll carried out in July among 1,000 people aged over 15 years (over 18 in Britain) in each country. The poll was conducted by ICM Research for the Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya.

- Masters of the Internet: GCHQ scanned entire countries for vulnerabilities (RT, Aug 18, 2014):

GCHQ is scanning servers in multiple foreign countries for vulnerable ports, according to German newspaper Heise. Using a tool called Hacienda, the intelligence agency seeks to ‘master the internet’ for sources of espionage.

Spanish for estate, Hacienda can port scan all of the servers in a country to provide information on user endpoints and scan for potential vulnerabilities. The ability to port scan is not new, but the scale of its use by government spies, with 27 countries scanned by 2009, has shocked many familiar with the software.

“In 2009, the British spy agency GCHQ made port scans a ‘standard tool’ to be applied against entire nations,” Heise reports. “Twenty-seven countries are listed as targets of the Hacienda [program].” Continue reading »

Ferguson-Looting-Posted-by-Michael-Calhoun-On-Twitter

- Why Were The Police In Ferguson Told Not To Stop The Rampant Looting On Friday Night? (Economic Collapse, Aug 17, 2014):

On Friday night, the city of Ferguson, Missouri was absolutely packed with militarized police.  But when the looting started, they did nothing about it.  In fact, news reports indicate that the police were lined up just blocks from where the looting was happening but did not make any attempt to stop it.  When I first read the news reports that I am about to share with you, I could hardly believe them.  I had to read them more than once just to be sure that I was understanding what I was reading.  According to eyewitnesses, police vehicles were seen driving by some of the stores while they were being looted and they did not respond.  If the police are not even going to lift a finger to stop rampant theft, then what in the world are they there for?  Why don’t they just pack up and leave the streets completely?  If they are just there to confront protesters and arrest journalists, all they are accomplishing is inflaming the situation.  And is this what we can expect when civil unrest spreads to more cities throughout America?  Will we not be able to depend on the police to protect our homes and our businesses?

What I am about to share with you are excerpts from mainstream news reports about how the police did nothing to stop the looting.  To me, this stand down by the police is one of the most disturbing aspects of the Ferguson riots so far. Continue reading »

- NSA BIOS Backdoor a.k.a. God Mode Malware Part (Infosec Institute):

This article is the first part of a series on NSA BIOS backdoor internals. Before we begin, I’d like to point out why these malwares are classified as “god mode.” First, most of the malware uses an internal (NSA) codename in the realms of “gods,” such as DEITYBOUNCE, GODSURGE, etc. Second, these malwares have capabilities similar to “god mode” cheats in video games, which make the player using it close to being invincible. This is the case with this type of malware because it is very hard to detect and remove, even with the most sophisticated anti-malware tools, during its possible deployment timeframe.

- Chinese Troops ‘Invade’ 25Km Into India, “This Is Chinese Territory, Go Back” (ZeroHedge, Aug 18, 2014):

Update: who says media disinformation only takes place in Ukraine; apparently the same takes placed between India and China. Bloomberg cites an Indian army spokesman S.D. Goswami who denies Chinese entered territory in Ladakh, a mountainous area in northern India. “No incursion or encroachment of Indian territory by China has taken place along the India-China border,” Goswami says in statement. “There are areas along the border where India and China have differing perception” of line of actual control. “Due to both sides undertaking patrolling up to their respective.

Almost as if someone in the media world is eager to launch a war…

* * *

Fifteen months ago we reported China’s stealth invasion of India’s Ladakh region, and now, as PTI reports, Chinese troops are reported to have entered deep into Indian territory in Burtse area in Ladakh where they had pitched their tents last year. Indian troops spotted Chinese personnel 25 to 30 km from the perceived Line of Actual Control (LAC). PLA personnel carried flags reading “this is Chinese territory, go back” in their hands and they refused to move after being confronted by India’s quick response team.

- Toddler Critically Burned When SWAT Team Throws Flashbang In Crib


- County officials refuse to pay medical bills for toddler burned by SWAT grenade (RT, Aug 18, 2014):

Officials in Georgia’s Habersham County are refusing to pay for the mounting medical expenses of a toddler seriously injured by a flash grenade after a failed SWAT team raid earlier this year.

Bounkham ‘Bou Bou’ Phonesavanh was just 19 months old when a Habersham SWAT team initiated a no-knock warrant at his family’s home at around 3 a.m. on May 28. Bou Bou was asleep in his crib at the time, surrounded by his family and three sisters. The toddler was severely injured when SWAT team officers broke through the house’s door and threw a flashbang grenade that ultimately landed in the Bou Bou’s crib.

When the stun grenade went off, it caused severe burns on the child and opened a gash in his chest. As a result, Bou Bou lost the ability to breathe on his own and was left in a medically induced coma for days after the incident. His extensive recovery necessitated stays in two hospitals before he finally went home in July. Continue reading »

- Disinformation War Escalates: Ukraine, Rebels Accuse Each Other Of Attacking Refugee Convoy (ZeroHedge, Aug 18, 2014):

The world has completely forgotten the latest round of disinformation spread by the Ukraine government, one which sent the “market” plunging, namely that a Russian military convoy was attacked and almost completely “eliminated” on Ukraine territory on Thursday night, a statement which was also “confirmed” by none other than the Ukraine president, yet where not a single trace of evidence was released showing any such convoy destruction.  So it is time for yet another round of (dis)information warfare, which we got this morning when Ukraine accused pro-Russian rebels on Monday of hitting a refugee convoy of buses with rocket fire near the eastern city of Luhansk, killing people trapped in the burning vehicles.

Eager to move on from Friday’s disinformation fiasco, Ukrainian military spokesmen said the bus convoy had been in an area of fierce fighting between government forces and the separatists. As Reuters reports, it had come under fire from rebel Grad and mortar launchers, they said, causing an unknown number of casualties. Continue reading »

While the eyes of the world are on Iraq, where all the mistakes of a disastrous American policy (also towards counterterrorism) are clearly seen, it is another part of the world where Islamic extremism is growing and becoming even more radicalized.

Even without the huge amount of dollars coming from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, as happens in Syria and Iraq, in recent years Islamic extremism has found fertile ground to flourish in Africa. Continue reading »

- ‘Get the f*** out of here!’ Ferguson cops threaten to shoot, mace reporters (VIDEO) (RT, Aug 18, 2014):

As tensions continue to mount in Ferguson, police officers were captured on video threatening to shoot one journalist and mace another. Other reporters allege they were arrested while covering the protests.

Shortly before midnight Sunday, a police officer was recorded on video giving a reporter a verbal dressing down for flashing a light from a video camera into the officer’s face.

“Get down, get the f*** out of here and get that light off, or you’re getting shot with this,” the officer could be heard yelling at Mustafa Hussein, a reporter from KARG Argus Radio.

When Hussein demands to know the name of the threatening officer, he is told by another officer, who only identifies himself as “Captain Todd,” that the reporters should keep their camera lights away from the police. The identity of the police officer who allegedly aimed a gun at Hussein is never revealed.

Police in Ferguson appear to be very much on edge following over a week of thousands of people coming out onto the streets demanding answers over the death of black teenager Michael Brown, who was reportedly shot at least six times by white officer Darren Wilson on August 9.

In another incident on Sunday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was delivering a live report when a police officer is heard yelling: “Media do not pass us, you’re getting maced next time you pass us.”

Meanwhile, at least two journalists were also arrested before being quickly released Sunday night. Continue reading »

And yes, the New World Order would not “be helped by an independent Scotland”.


- Scotland’s leader brands Australian PM’s remarks on independence ‘foolish’ (RT, Aug 17, 2014):

Alex Salmond, the First Minister for Scotland, has said that comments by Tony Abbott, the Australian Prime Minster, that the world would not “be helped by an independent Scotland” are “foolish, hypocritical and offensive”.

Mr Abbott who is on a visit to London told the Times newspaper that the decision on whether Scotland should be an independent country and break from the more than 300 year union with the rest of the UK, is “a matter for the scots”.

He then said that it was “hard to see how the world would be helped by an independent Scotland.”

“I think the people who would like to see the break-up of the United Kingdom are not the friends of justice, the friends of freedom, and the countries that cheer at the prospect are not the countries whose company one would like to keep,” he said.

Scottish voters will go to the polls on 18 September and will be asked the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” Continue reading »

- Obama Putting Vacation On Hold, Returning To Washington For “Unspecified Meetings” (ZeroHedge, Aug, 17, 2014):

Earlier we joked that “it is rumored, although unlikely, that a city devolving into a state of emergency and actual curfew, will be enough for the president to take a break from his golf game and make a teleprompted statement later today.” Just a few short hours later, in a stunning development and in what may well be a first for the president, Obama announced he planned to take a break in the middle of his Martha’s Vineyard vacation and return to Washington on Sunday night for “unspecified meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers.”

According to CBS “The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. Part of the decision appears aimed at countering criticism that Obama is spending two weeks on a resort island in the midst of so many foreign and domestic crises.”

Well, he is. But one wonders if the president taking a break from taking a break will fix everything overnight. If Obama was indeed serious about fixing things, instead he should have announced that he was staying on the Vineyard for the next two years.

More from CBS:

Those crises turned the first week of Obama’s vacation into a working holiday. He made on-camera statements on U.S. military action in Iraq and the clashes between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. He called foreign leaders to discuss the tensions between Ukraine and Russia, as well as between Israel and Hamas.”

“I think it’s fair to say there are, of course, ongoing complicated situations in the world, and that’s why you’ve seen the president stay engaged,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

Obama is scheduled to return to Martha’s Vineyard on Tuesday and stay through next weekend.

Even though work has occupied much of Obama’s first week on vacation, he still found plenty of time to golf, go to the beach with his family and go out to dinner on the island.

He also attended a birthday party for Democratic adviser Vernon Jordan’s wife, where he spent time with former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

So… futures open limit up in a few hours as the algos price in even more global destruction and resulting monetary “stimulus”?

- Germany tapped John Kerry’s phone, spied on Turkey for years – report (RT, Aug 17, 2014):

Germany’s foreign intelligence agency eavesdropped at least one telephone conversation of US Secretary of State John Kerry and spied on NATO ally Turkey since 2009, Der Spiegel newspaper revealed on Saturday.

Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND) picked up the phone call “by accident” in 2013, the weekly newspaper reported in a pre-publication citing unnamed sources. Kerry was discussing the Middle East tensions between Israelis, Palestinians and Arab states in a satellite link, according to Der Spiegel.

The new revelation comes after German media – Daily newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) and regional public broadcasters NDR and WDR – reported on Friday that BND intercepted at least one phone call made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The date of the call was not given and the media said that it was also picked up “by accident”. Continue reading »

- UK must stop selling weapons to Israel or face legal action – anti-war group (RT, Aug 17, 2014):

The UK government is being taken to court over its continuing multi-million pound program of selling arms to Israel after claims they could have been used in Gaza. Unless it stops, its issuing of licenses to arms manufacturers will be legally challenged.

The lawsuit comes from the UK-based Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), which is represented by law firm Leigh Day. The firm wrote to the UK’s business secretary, Vince Cable, stating that the government was acting unlawfully and that a judicial review of its activities would be carried out if it refuses to stop the exports, the Guardian reports.

The White House has still not released the Congressional report detailing the CIA’s use of torture as an interrogation technique. While a full report exists and was written by the Senate specifically with the intent of it being made public, the Obama administration is hoping to instead release a redacted version approved by the CIA with key details missing, according to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Some who have long opposed the spy agency’s practices feel the report should be made public regardless of an almost certain negative domestic and international backlash, as former Rep. Ron Paul explains to RT’s Ameera David.

- FDA, mainstream media denounce nano silver as ‘bogus cure’ for Ebola virus (Natural News, 17, 2014):

There’s a very interesting showdown taking place right now in the realm of Ebola treatments and cures. At stake is billions of dollars in potential vaccine profits as well as potentially tens of millions of lives of an Ebola pandemic outbreak takes place.

Here’s a summary of what’s happening so far, as best I can tell:

• The world of conventional medicine currently has ZERO proven treatments, vaccines or cures for treating Ebola.

• The recent Ebola media panic resulted in tremendous FDA pressure to authorize Ebola vaccine trials run by a company called Tekmira, whose stock price skyrocketed nearly 100% after the announcement.

• As Ebola news continued to spread, some websites began to claim they had various cures or treatments that could treat or prevent Ebola. For example, this web page claims something called “Monolaurin” is the answer to Ebola.

The New York Times published an article explaining that the FDA had “issued warnings over Ebola cures.” This article specifically named Dr. Rima Laibow for asserting that nano silver can kill Ebola. Continue reading »

- Obama’s Secret TPP Deal Would Be Disastrous For America (Economy in Crisis, Aug 15, 2014):

Recent reports continue to show that our economy is still struggling. Instead of solving the problem, President Obama continues to push for more secret “free trade” agreements, modeled after the North American Free Trade Agreement. Especially disturbing, in the President’s grand push for a 12-nation trade pact dubbed the Trans-Pacific Partnership(TPP), is that Congress has been left out of negotiations. “We want transparency. We want to see what’s going on there,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters. “We have a problem with that.”

Instead of Granting Congress more transparency, the president has asked for Congress to grant him Trade Promotion Authority or Fast Track as it is also called. This would mean the president could sign the deal before Congress approves it and then ram it through Congress with limited debate and no opportunity of filibuster. Continue reading »

- VIDEO: John Kerry tells starving Africans to refrain from creating new farms because they’d contribute to global warming (Ice Age Now, Aug 14, 2014):

A glimpse into Kerry’s twisted priorities.


When leaders from Africa and the U.S. convened in Washington, D.C., to discuss a wide range of issues affecting African nations, Secretary of State John Kerry gave us a glimpse into his twisted priorities.

During the “Resilience and Food Security in a Changing Climate” panel, Kerry noted that Africa faces a starvation problem. With thousands going to bed hungry each night, it’s undeniable that one of Africa’s largest problems is starvation.

Kerry claimed that “8,000 children die every day” and that one in four children face chronic hunger.

However, just minutes later, Kerry reminded the crowd that despite the starving children in Africa, they ought to refrain from creating new farms because it contributes to “climate change.”

“Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place.”

- State Of Emergency, Curfew Issued For Ferguson (ZeroHedge, Aug 16, 2014):

It was only a matter of time before Ferguson became the Americanized version of Gaza.

After last night’s looting in which the local police was inexplicably instructed to stand down by the state highway patrol, moments ago Missouri’s governor ,Jay Nixon, issued a local state of emergency and imposed a nighttime curfew lasting from midnight until 5 am. As the WSJ reports, at the Greater St. Mark Family Church in St. Louis, Gov. Jay Nixon said the overwhelming number of protesters have been peaceful. But the governor said he would not allow a small number of violent rioters to emerge again in the wake of a police-involved fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown one week ago. “If we are going to have justice, we must first have and maintain peace,” the governor said adding that this is a test if the “town can break the cycle of fear.” From where we stand, the answer so far is a resounding no.

- “Anti-Putin” Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions (ZeroHedge, Aug 16, 2014):

Last week Germany reported that in the second quarter, its GDP declined by 0.2%, worse than Wall Street consensus. This happened a few shorts days after Italy reported a second consecutive decline in its own GDP, becoming the first Europen country to enter a triple-dip recession. What’s worse, Europe’s slowdown took place before the brunt of Russian sanctions hit. Surely in the third quarter the GDP of Germany, a nation whose exports accounts for 41% of GDP, will be even worse, with whisper numbers of -1% being thrown casually around, but one thing is certain: Europe is about to enter its third recession since the Lehman collapse just as we forecast at the end of 2013, a “triple-dip” which may become an outright depression unless Draghi injects a few trillion in credit money (which will do nothing but delay the inevitable and make it that much worse once the can can no longer be kicked), and unless normal trade ties with Russia are restored.

- Mission Creep: From Rescuing Iraq Refuges, The US Is Now Assisting Kurds In Fighting ISIS With Drones, F-18s (ZeroHedge, Aug 16, 2014):

Just over a week ago, Obama announced that the US military intervention in Iraq would be solely under the pretext of “humanitarian intervention” while US troops would be deployed exclusively as “advisers”, and nothing else. 7 days later, the siege on Mount Sinjar is virtually over with the US announcing that “far fewer Iraqi refugees were found on mount Sinjar“, and yet the US finds it difficult to leave: something which the current president crusaded against his predecessor over. And today it was finally confirmed that the latest US airborne assault of Iraq (so far without a land invasion force) has just suffered terminal mission creep, when US airstrikes, by both F-18s and drones, were used not to protect and safeguard the besieged refuges but to aid Kuridsh forces in retaking the critical Mosul dam from ISIS militants who took control of the critical piece of infrastructure in early August.
