- UK journalists could be labeled ‘terrorists’ for attempting to uphold public interest (RT, July 22, 2014):

British journalists who publish politically motivated content could be labeled terrorists if UK authorities deem the material to be a threat to public safety, according to Britain’s counter-terrorism watchdog.

In his annual report published on July 22, the UK’s Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation David Anderson QC emphasized the UK’s anti-terror laws were simply too broad. His comprehensive review was presented to parliament by Britain’s Home Secretary on Tuesday morning. Continue reading »

- UK Families living on ‘knife edge’, homeless charity says (RT, July 22, 2014):

Welfare cuts and pressures on household budgets is driving people to the brink of homelessness, a leading UK charity has warned.

Shelter, a charity that campaigns against homelessness, says it can no longer keep up demand for its helpline after calls increased by 20% since 2011. As a result, almost a third of phone calls go unanswered.

Last year, the charity received 7,600 calls from renters at risk of eviction, compared to 3,997 over the same period in 2011-12.

It warned that people were living on a ‘knife edge’ as losing a job or falling sick could tip them into homelessness. Continue reading »

- Flight MH-17 Black Boxes To Be Analyzed In “Impartial” London (ZeroHedge, July 22, 2014):

Now that the black boxes from flight MH-17 have been handed over by the Ukraine separatists to Malaysian authorities (somewhat denting the credibility of the fabricated Ukrainian YouTube clip in which the rebels were “instructed” by Moscow to hide the black boxes), there was one question: which impartial entity and/or country would be tasked with an objective retrieval and analysis of the contents. A little while ago we got the answer courtesy of none other than UK Prime Minister David Cameron:

So the Dutch are incapable of analyzing black boxes on their own and needed London’s help? Curious.

- How British Spies “Seed the Internet With False Info, Control YouTube Pageviews and Manipulate Online Polls” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 16, 2014):

Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have proof about an incredible set of tools used by the British equivalent of the NSA, known as the GCHQ, or Government Communications Headquarters. These tools will essentially confirm every single conspiracy theory you could have ever imagined when it comes to propaganda on the Internet. It allows British intelligence officers to: “manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, ‘amplify’ sanctioned messages on YouTube, and censor video content judged to be ‘extremist.’”

Being the creative folks that they are, GCHQ even came up with code words to describe each “product.” These include, UNDERPASS (for poll manipulation), SILVERLORD (for censorship), GESTATOR (for the manipulation of YouTube views), PREDATORS FACE (for DDOS attacks), the list goes on…

- The U.K. Political Pedophile Ring Scandal is Just The Tip of the Iceberg – The Full Story is Much More Disturbing [UPDATED] (SCG, News, July 8, 2014):

Numerous high ranking British politicians are being investigated for their involvement in an extensive pedophile ring, however the full scope of this scandal can’t be fully appreciated without looking at the other side of the Atlantic

It wasn’t that long ago that those who claimed that there was a massive pedophile ring involving officials in the highest levels of government were written off as conspiracy theorists and kooks. That is no longer the case, at least in the U.K. It turns out that this so called conspiracy theory was true, and is finally being officially investigated. The coverup isn’t going well at this point. The British government is even coming under heat for the convenient disappearance of key files regarding the allegations. At least forty British MPs are implicated, but this is really just the tip of the iceberg. Continue reading »

The elitists keep detailed dossiers of their elite puppet assets and their weaknesses.

In fact they only choose puppets who have ‘weaknesses’ (lots of them!!!).

If their assets do not follow their orders or misbehave, well, then here comes the scandal.

If it is only a misdemeanor, they come up with a Monica Lewinsky.

If the behaviour is totally unacceptable, they give you the JFK treatment.

- Knowing war law exposes ALL US/UK/Israel war ‘reasons’ as BS propaganda; Oaths require leaders’ arrests (Washington’s Blog, July 18, 2014):

US military, government (including law enforcement), and millions of Americans (including all California public employees) have Oaths to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It’s hard to imagine a worse domestic enemy than those who knowingly lie for unlawful attack on foreign countries, resulting in millions of war-deaths. These lies include Israel’s easily-proved lies that Iran threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” (more on Iran) while Israel actually wipes Palestine off the map.

The US/UK/Israel wars of the present are Orwellian unlawful because they violate two treaties renouncing armed attack as a foreign policy option, and allowing military use only in a narrow definition of self-defense when attacked by another nation’s government (full explanation/documentation here).

Article Six of the US Constitution defines a treaty as US “supreme Law of the Land;” meaning that US policy may only complement an active treaty, and never violate it.

Therefore, all “reasons” for US/UK/Israel armed attacks are criminal propaganda; constant BS to say whatever required to keep these War Crimes unrecognized (with corporate media complicity). Continue reading »

Butler-Sloss, 80, had been under pressure to quit by both MPs and victims due to her family links. Sir Michael Havers, who is the Baroness’ late brother, served as attorney general in the 1980’s, and is suspected of turning a blind eye to incidents of child abuse conducted by politicians during the time.

- I’m confused, can anyone help me? Part 2 (RT, July 15, 2014):

I’m confused. Jen Psaki, US State Department spokesperson, says that the Ukrainian government has ‘every right’ to use air strikes against its opponents in Ukraine on the grounds that it ‘is defending the country’.

Yet in 2011, alleged air strikes by Libyan government forces against its opponents were used as a reason for the imposition of a ‘no-fly zone’ which was followed by a NATO-led military intervention against Libya. We were told that the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was ‘killing his own people’ and had to be stopped. The deaths of over 200 people in Libya was, according to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ‘unacceptable’. But the Ukrainian government is killing its own people today, and despite more than 200 people being killed (as of 10th July the number of civilian deaths was 478, including seven children), western leaders do not say that the Ukrainian leader, Petro Poroshenko, has to be stopped, or that the bloodshed is ‘unacceptable’ and nor are there any calls for a ‘no-fly zone’ to be imposed. Why is it acceptable for the Ukrainian government to launch a military offensive, including air strikes against its own people, but unacceptable for the Libyan government in 2011 to do likewise? I’m confused. Can anyone help me? Continue reading »

  • In nominating Lord Hill – the current leader of House of Lords – as the UK’s European Commissioner, Number 10 prioritised a ‘fixer’ and avoiding by-election over sending a heavy-hitter,
  • MEPs approved Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission President by 422 votes to 250, marking the starting point of a more politicised European Commission.

- Given US/UK/Israel wars and lust for more, what do two ‘supreme Law’ treaties say about lawful and unlawful war? (Washington’s Blog, July 13, 2014):

The short answer is war is lawful only in self-defense from armed attack by another nation’s government, and lawful response is to arrest US/UK/Israel leaderships for unlawful Wars of Aggression.

Background history: It’s easy to document the US as a neocolonial empire; offspring of Europe’s lust for material wealth that spawned two world wars in the century within which all current adults were born.

All of our families sacrificed through those wars. Please take a moment to feel what they went through. Please take a moment to experience the cumulative costs inflicted by “developed” nations’ imperialism and wars, including Israel’s escalating unlawful War of Aggression on Palestine that make Gaza the world’s largest concentration camp.

Cocain-UK
Alarming: British youngsters have become the greatest consumers of cocaine in the developed world, according to an international study

- UK is cocaine capital of the western world as number of young Britons using the drug shoots up by 50 per cent (Daily Mail, Nov 11, 2014):

  • Men are twice as likely to die from cocaine than women
  • One in seven 15 to 34-year-olds have taken cocaine

British youngsters have become the greatest consumers of cocaine in the developed world, according to a major international study.

It found that numbers of young people using the drug in this country have shot up by 50 per cent over five years.

This means Britain has left other countries which face major cocaine problems – in particular the U.S. and Spain – far behind in the league table of those worst-affected. Continue reading »

- Revealed: Britain’s secret plan for 100,000 Syria invasion force (RT, July 4, 2014):

Britain was considering the option of training a massive, 100,000-strong army in Turkey and Jordan to defeat President Bashar Assad, according to a plan drawn up by a leading British general. The invasion was later scrapped as too risky.

The strategy, revealed by BBC Newsnight, involved Britain training a 100,000-strong rebel army in Jordan and Turkey over a 12-month period.

The rebels would have been trained by an international coalition armed with high-quality weaponry, and would have marched on Damascus with air cover provided by Britain and its allies.

And the one and only reason why this ‘brilliant’ Libya 2.0 plan had to be scrapped is called … Vladimir Putin.

The plan echoes the ‘Shock and Awe’ campaign used in Iraq during its initial invasion in 2003.

The idea was developed two years ago by Lord Richards, the UK Chief of Defense Staff at the time. During his tenure, he actively lobbied Prime Minister David Cameron to intensify the war effort in Libya, and directly target its then-leader Muammar Gaddafi, rather than just protect civilians.
