- Martin Armstrong Warns “Abandon The UK Before You Can’t” (ZeroHedge, April 22, 2014):

The following is a new ad campaign in Britain.

20140422_uk

As we have warned numerous times – muddle-through has failed; Martin Armstrong notes, the politicians have squandered everything and now they are hunting down capital everywhere and the view is people have to pay whatever they demand or you are just a criminal. Nobody even bothers to look at what they are doing to the world economy.

These advertisements are appearing everywhere and they will only succeed in created the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression.

- Nearly one million people relying on food handouts in UK (RT, April 16, 2014):

One of Britain’s largest food charities says that more than 900,000 people visited its food banks last year. The Wednesday report comes as 600 religious leaders urge the government to take action against the country’s growing hunger problem.

The new information shows the shocking number of people reliant on food handouts in the UK, largely because of harsh new benefits sanctions.

According to The Trussell Trust, Britain’s largest food bank charity, 913,138 people received emergency food aid from the organization in 2013-2014, compared to just 346,992 in 2012-2013 – marking an increase of 163 percent.

- Pressure mounts on UK over CIA’s ‘black site’ jail in Indian Ocean (RT, April 13, 2014):

A human rights group is urging Britain’s Foreign office to “come clean” over claims that a British-administered island in the Indian Ocean, Diego Garcia, was used as a secret “black site” detention center by the CIA.

“We need to know immediately whether ministers misled parliament over CIA torture on British soil,” Cori Crider, strategic director at Reprieve, a legal action charity group, said in a letter to UK Foreign Secretary William Hague.

“If the CIA operated a black site on Diego Garcia, then a string of official statements, from both this and the last government, were totally false,” Crider said.

- Mass water fluoridation considered for England (Intellihub, April 3, 2014):

England may become one of the only European countries to mandate widespread water fluoridation

LONDON (INTELLIHUB) — The government in England is pushing for widespread water fluoridation all throughout the UK.

Fluoride is a carcinogenic waste product of aluminum. It is also the main ingredient in rat poison, nerve gas and Prozac. This chemical agent has been present in the water supply in America for several generations, but this sick and twisted idea actually began during the Third Reich in Nazi Germany.

In the past decade many countries throughout the world have been forced to stop fluoridating the public water supply, because people are becoming more informed about how harmful this chemical really is.

The list of governments who are still forcing this toxin on local populations is growing smaller by the year, due to public outcry, which is reinforcing the claims that this chemical is harmful. However, England may be taking a step backwards with a recent push to expand their fluoridation program.

- New Law Could Target Parents Who Drink Alcohol in Front of Kids as Child Abusers (Infowars, April 2, 2014):

“Making fun of” what a child says would also represent emotional abuse

A new law in the UK which will criminalize the “emotional abuse” of children could target parents who drink alcohol in front of their children as child abusers, giving the state an opportunity to snatch kids on the flimsiest of pretexts, with parents being punished with up to ten years in jail.

Under the new “Cinderella Law,” denying love to children could be characterized as a crime in the same league as physical or sexual abuse. The definition of such “abuse,” being solely in the hands of the state, opens up a pandora’s box of potential behaviors that could warrant government interference in family life.

- Durham police uncover paedophile ring with more than 500 potential victims (Guardian, March 28, 2014):

Head of major inquiry into Medomsley detention centre in County Durham shocked by scale of historical sexual abuse

Police investigating sexual abuse at a Durham detention centre say they believe they have uncovered an organised paedophile ring operating in the 1970s and 80s with more than 500 potential victims.

The head of a 70-strong major inquiry into historical abuse at the Medomsley detention centre, near Consett, told the Guardian the inquiry was triggered by mounting evidence about isolated individuals. However, they were now investigating a complex paedophile ring, with many more victims than previously thought.

D Supt Paul Goundry, senior investigating officer, said: “We always knew this would be a major inquiry but the scale of it, and the sheer number of victims who have come forward, has been a shock.”

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.

- Pushing Toward The Final War (Paul Craig Roberts, March 28, 2014):

Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France.

In The genesis Of The World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare`, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France. Poincare` wanted Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and the Russians wanted Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. They realized that their ambitions required a general European war and worked to produce the desired war.

- Britons Rate Russia More Favorably Than European Union, Israel (ZeroHedge, March 24, 2014):

One would think that for all its demonization in the Western press, not to mention the countless comparisons to Hitler and/or the Antichrist, that Putin’s Russia would be viewed relatively negatively especially in that bastion of western thought: Britain. Yes, perhaps: it certainly doesn’t have a sterling image. However what is remarkableis that depite recent events in the Crimea, Britons still see Russia in a more positive light than the European Union, despite recent tensions with Moscow over Ukraine, according to a poll published on Saturday.

Perhaps this is not surprising, because as AFP reports, voters in Britain are also equally divided about whether to remain in the 28-member bloc, a subject on which Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum in 2017 and which is the reason for the blistering ascent in popularity of such political parties as the UKIP.

Aborted and miscarried babies are being incinerated as “clinical waste,” with some being used to power hospitals in the UK, a policy that some have defended as an efficient means of sustainable recycling.

“Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat,” reports the Telegraph. The revelations emerged as a result of a Channel 4 Dispatches program set to be broadcast in the UK tonight which found that more than 15,000 babies were incinerated.

The program also unveiled the fact that parents who lost babies were being treated without compassion and were not properly consulted on what would happen to their child’s remains.

- British snipers killed Afghans in pointless ‘turkey shoot’ and boosted support for the Taliban, says major who revealed how troops died due to lack of equipment (Daily Mail, March 23, 2014):

  • Major Streatfeild commanded a company of riflemen fighting the Taliban
  • Says many shot and killed as a result posed no risk to British forces
  • Streatfeild condemns ‘turkey shoot’ tactics that led to ‘repetitive slaughter’
  • Says British soldiers pointlessly killed hundreds of armed villagers 

British soldiers pointlessly killed hundreds of armed villagers in Afghanistan who posed no imminent threat, a former officer has claimed.

In a sensational new book, Major Richard Streatfeild condemns the ‘turkey shoot’ tactics that led to the ‘repetitive slaughter’ of people that UK troops were supposed to protect.

Soldiers based in Helmand from 2006 to 2009 were permitted to open fire on anyone approaching their bases while carrying a weapon.

But Major Streatfeild, who commanded a company of riflemen fighting the Taliban, said many of those shot and killed as a result posed no risk to British forces, in what amounted to ‘a turkey shoot masquerading as professional soldiering’.

Further, the report says that the current system “disproportionately burdens those who [make] honest mistakes,” and that “tax requirements have become so confusing and the compliance burden so great that taxpayers are giving up their U.S. citizenship in record numbers.”

Navy warship accidentally fires torpedo at nuclear dockyard
A stingray training variant torpedo is fired from Type 23 frigate HMS Westminster during an exercise

- Friday (Un)Humor: Navy Warship ‘Accidentally’ Fires Torpedo At Nuclear Dockyard (ZeroHedge, March 14, 2014):

Had the thing been armed it would have let out a 200-metre blast…You could be talking about a major loss of life,” one source noted as The Telegraph reports British military chiefs have launched a major investigation after a Royal Navy warship accidentally fired a torpedo at a nuclear dockyard. Workers watched in disbelief as the tube-shaped projectile flew through the air before blasting a hole in a security fence and slamming into a storage container. “Someone has obviously pushed the button, presumably by accident – the big question is who,” as the Royal Navy stiff-upper-lippedly stated “during a training exercise, an inert Test Variant Torpedo unexpectedly jettisoned onto the wharf. There was no explosion and no casualties.” Perhaps they should stay away from the Black Sea for a while – just in case.

Via The Telegraph,

HMS Argyll was moored at Devonport Naval base in Plymouth when the 9ft missile suddenly shot out of its starboard side during a training drill.

Advisor to No 10 helped to draw up government policy on online pornography filters

One of David Cameron’s closest aides has been arrested on suspicion of offences relating to child pornography.

Patrick Rock, who was one of the government’s advisors on policy for online pornography filters, was arrested last month after police examined computers in No 10 Downing Street.

Mr Rock resigned as a policy advisor to the Prime Minister soon afterwards.

No 10 said he was arrested last month “a few hours” after Downing Street contacted police.

The former deputy head of the No 10 Policy Unit has been close to Mr Cameron for two decades. The two men worked for Michael Howard when he was Home Secretary in the 1990s.

In his first visit to Israel as PM, David Cameron condemns Iran for “despicable” terrorist ties and reveals Jewish ancestry

- David Cameron pledges ‘unbreakable’ support for Israel (Telegraph, March 12, 2014):

David Cameron has pledged his “unbreakable” support for Israel and condemned Iran for its “despicable” attempts to smuggle missiles to terrorists.

On Mr Cameron’s first visit as Prime Minister to the country, he revealed he has Jewish ancestry and pledged to his “rock solid” to the Israeli people.

On Wednesday afternoon, as Mr Cameron laid a wreath and rekindled the eternal flame in the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, the country came under attack from a barrage of at least 25 rockets fired from Hamas-controlled Gaza, in the biggest launch in more than two years.

If his four-year delay in coming had raised eyebrows among his hosts, Mr Cameron made up for it by his giving unreserved support to Israel over its most pressing security concerns.

In a speech peppered with Hebrew to the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, Mr Cameron vows to protect the customs of British Jews by ensuring the kosher slaughter of animals remains legal.

The practice, in which animals have their throats slit, has been condemned by leading vets, but Mr Cameron said: “On my watch Shechita is safe in the UK.”

- The Most Evil And Disturbing NSA Spy Practices To-Date Have Just Been Revealed (Liberty Blitzkrieg, March 12, 2014):

In some cases the NSA has masqueraded as a fake Facebook server, using the social media site as a launching pad to infect a target’s computer and exfiltrate files from a hard drive. In others, it has sent out spam emails laced with the malware, which can be tailored to covertly record audio from a computer’s microphone and take snapshots with its webcam. The hacking systems have also enabled the NSA to launch cyberattacks by corrupting and disrupting file downloads or denying access to websites.

The man-in-the-middle tactic can be used, for instance, to covertly change the content of a message as it is being sent between two people, without either knowing that any change has been made by a third party.

- From Glenn Greenwald’s latest article: How the NSA Plans to Infect Millions of Computers with Malware

The latest piece from Greenwald and company on the unconstitutional spy practices of the NSA may represent the most dangerous and disturbing revelations yet. It’s hard for shadiness at the NSA to surprise me these days, but there was only one word that kept repeating over and over in my head as I read this: EVIL.

As a quick aside, Greenwald points out in the quote above how spam emails are used by the NSA to bait you into clicking dangerous links. This is a timely revelation considering I received one such email yesterday from a friend of mine. The email was sent to a wide list of let’s say “liberty-minded people” and webmasters associated with very popular sites. The link seemed shady so I texted him to ask if he had sent it. He hadn’t.

- Starved & evicted: Britain’s poor now treated worse than animals (RT, March 7, 2014):

If someone had told me a decade ago that the British government would deliberately starve my fellow countrymen in an attempt to bully them into slave labor jobs that wouldn’t even pay the bills, I would have laughed in their face.

But now I know I would have been the fool. This is indeed the breathtaking strategy of David Cameron’s LibDem-Tory coalition.

A vast underclass of between 5 and 10 million people has been created in Britain of desperate, destitute and now-dying people. While government and media alike tell of “hopeful signs” that the nation’s getting better off, they are just ‘talking it up’ from their ivory towers.

Even Lord Rothschild, who invests over 2 billion pounds of his own dynasty’s and other depositors’ cash through RIT Capital Partners, is ringing alarm bells this week: “With the world recovery still fragile and reliant to a large extent on policy support [QE/money printing]“, he warns, “it is not hard to envisage markets having to deal with shocks in the coming year.” Yes, “shocks.”

Well it turns out it is even worse than that. Apparently, Patrick Rock, an official who helped draw up guidelines on Internet porn filters, has been arrested for child porn. You can’t make this stuff up.

- Thousands of young people forced to go without food after benefits wrongly stopped under ‘draconian’ new sanctions regime (Independent, March 2, 2014):

Thousands of young people have been forced to go without food or other essentials after their benefits were wrongly stopped under a “draconian” new sanctions regime, research suggests.

Since the Coalition introduced more punitive benefit sanctions in October 2012, more than 45,000 young people have been hit with an incorrect penalty, according to IoS analysis of Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) figures.

A sanction can mean having welfare payments cut off entirely for a minimum of a month and as much as three years for “repeat offenders”. The hardline system, which means people can end up cast adrift for accidentally missing an appointment, is thought to be one of the reasons behind the vast numbers turning to food banks.
