Are Russians Sending Military Support To Syria? Potential For Conflict With NATO?

If reports coming from YNet News are accurate, the Syrian crisis just became more complex and more dangerous. The report would be great news for the Assad government, however, as it suggests that, in addition to providing Syria with six new MIG 31 jets and providing satellite images with the SAA, the Russians will also be delivering an expeditionary force of Russian soldiers.

YNet claims that the Russian force will be made up of fighter pilots, attack helicopter pilots, advisors, technicians, logistics personnel, instructors, and members of the aerial protection division. The forces are to be stationed at a permanent base in Syria. Although the Russians already maintain the Port of Tartus, YNet suggests that the new base of operations will be an “Assad-controlled” location in an area surrounding Damascus.

YNet refers to the alleged Russian base as “Forward-Operating Base” and has estimated the number of Russian personnel scheduled to enter Syria as being in the “thousands.”

What A Russian Force Would Mean For Assad 


If we are able to work on the assumption that the YNet report is accurate, a Russian “expeditionary force” would be a major shot in the arm for the Assad government, even if this force is only operating on the periphery of the conflict. The provision of the MIG-31 jet aircraft was extremely important in terms of technical capabilities for the Syrian government’s necessity to bomb ISIS held territory while avoiding relatively sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons provided to the terrorists by the West. It was also because of what it meant in terms of international relations and the stance of the Russian government in the context of the Syrian crisis. Essentially, it was a clear statement that “Russia stands with Syria.”

Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates Invade Yemen In Open War

Unbeknownst to most Americans, a new war was launched in early August and not merely the proxy force versus proxy force variety that we have become accustomed to seeing over the last few years. A direct military conflict and invasion of Yemen by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – complete with air assaults, tanks, and ground troops – was launched in early August. Yet, if one were not following the events in Yemen closely, you would scarcely have known that the war had started.

Indeed, when Tony Cartalucci wrote that, “with almost a whimper,” the Western media reported the ground invasion of Yemen, he couldn’t have been more right.

Regardless, the Saudi Arabians and other members of the “coalition” created to defeat the Houthi rebels have been bombing Yemen for months, killing scores of innocent civilians. These bombing raids, while proving devastating to the civilian population, did little to dislodge the Houthi rebels’ hold on territory aside from the port of Aden, an area already the scene of fierce fighting between the Houthis, forces loyal to former President Hadi, and al-Qaeda fighters. During the course of the bombing, the Houthis demonstrated that, not only were they able to withstand the Saudi bombing campaign but they were able to launch retaliatory strikes inside Saudi Arabia. The Houthi resiliency and the subsequent strikes inside Saudi Arabia thus revealed the Saudis as a military paper tiger.

The Saudi ambition of bombing the Houthis into submission changed in early August when the Saudi forces along with their “coalition” colleague United Arab Emirates began a ground invasion of Yemen.

Color Revolution In Lebanon Designed To Weaken Hezbollah, Syria, Iran

August 27, 2015

During the past week, demonstrations in Lebanon over uncollected garbage have descended into violent clashes between protesters and police. Masses of demonstrators have swelled in the streets of Beirut in a movement now being deemed the “You Stink!” movement.

With these developments suddenly taking place in Lebanon and, with taking the Syrian crisis into context and the Iranian nuclear deal in the background, it is reasonable to question whether or not these protests are a legitimate expression of discontent with an inefficient government or whether it is the product of a Western-backed color revolution aimed at destabilizing Lebanon – particularly Hezbollah – and further weakening the “Shiite Arch of Influence.”

When attempting to analyze events in Lebanon, like much of the Middle East, very little could be considered simple. Lebanon has been racked with economic depression, cultural tensions, color revolutions, civil war and civil war brinkmanship, and terrorism for decades. It has also been the target of outside forces for many years.

The Background

The issue of trash pickup – the issue around which the protests began – was entirely a legitimate issue. Squabbling within the Lebanese government has resulted in gridlock on issues such as the disposal of garbage and the economic crisis has brought funding of garbage disposal into question. Likewise, when the government brought up the idea of the privatization of trash disposal services, Lebanese erupted in anger understanding that privatization would mean higher prices, poorer service, and even less accountability.

Western Propaganda Method: Claim Dead Terrorists As Dead Civilians

August 24, 2015

By now, the propaganda coming from the US State Department and the United Nations as well as their media mouthpieces should be familiar. According to these institutions, the Assad government is evil, illegitimate, and it intentionally massacres civilians. These claims are easily proven false and have been proven false in the past. Indeed, I have discussed these types of claims at length in my own articles and exposed them for being nothing more than weak attempts to convince Western peoples that Assad is a butcher and the terrorist are democracy-loving freedom fighters.

Such can be seen in the recent attempt to portray the Syrian Air Force as wantonly murdering civilians with “barrel bombs” in places like Doumaa.

Surrounding an incident in which the SAAF dropped a barrel bomb on a marketplace in Doumaa, the site of an intense battle between terrorists and the Syrian government forces, the jihadist-friendly Syrian Observatory for Human Rights joined forces yet again with the US State Department in its claims that Assad had ordered a massacre of innocent civilians who were merely shopping in a marketplace.

Consider the State Department’s response to the incident which read that “The United States condemns, in the strongest terms, the recent deadly airstrikes this week on a market in the Damascus suburb of Douma that killed more than 100 people and injured hundreds including innocent women and children.”

National Security Council Spokesman, Ned Price stated,

While the Israeli’s continue to launch bombing raids across the border into Syria and the Turks prepare for an invasion of Syria on the northern border – along with an already aggressive “No-Fly Zone” policy protecting ISIS supply lines – the Turks are now engaging in an even more dangerous game. As if Turkey’s aggression against its Southern neighbor was not enough, the Turks are now aiding in the development of fighting forces to be aimed at Russia.

On August 1-2, a meeting was convened at the Hotel Billkent in Ankara, Turkey labeled the Second World Congress of the Tatars. This meeting brought together over 200 Tatar NGOs and associations from all over the world. The event was also attended by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin and Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus. Both officials participated in the event as well.

As Zaman reports,

Nearly 200 Crimean Tatar nongovernmental organizations and civil society groups gathered in Ankara as part of the Second World Crimean Tatar Congress to discuss the ongoing crisis in Ukraine and the situation of their brethren in Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in February of last year.

The meeting took place on Saturday at Ankara Bilkent Hotel and Congress Center and focused on the dire conditions under which Crimean Tatars have to live in the face of encroaching Russian pressure on their cultural life. The gathering offered an opportunity for lengthy discussions about how to resolve the prolonged conflict in Ukraine and to maintain Tatars' threatened community rights under the new administration in Crimea.

Israel "Drills" Ground Incursion In Syria; Pretext Fighting Terror Israel Helped Create

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
August 18, 2015

According to reports coming from both Israel and Europe, the Israeli Defense Forces appear to be preparing for a ground incursion of Syrian territory in the Golan Heights area.

Whatever the plans of the IDF, the Israeli military clearly engaged in wide-scale maneuvers on the border with Syria on Sunday which simulated an incursion into Syrian territory and the evacuation of Israelis currently residing in border towns.

Yoav Zitun of YNetNews describes the drills by writing,

Military exercises in the area over the last two weeks have focused primarily on a scenario of offensive operations inside Syrian territory in response to possible action from the Syrian border such as the infiltration of dozens of terrorists armed with anti-tank weapons, machine guns, grenades and light weapons into one of the communities along the border.

The exercises included possible IDF responses to such infiltrations with troops firing at fixed points on the Syrian side of the border. Simultaneously, officials expect a barrage of mortar bombs to be fired at communities in the Golan Heights during such a scenario.

Commanders in the field put theoretical defensive plans into action using aircraft and combat helicopters alongside tank-fire, artillery guns and even hundreds of reserve fighters who participated in the exercise.

UN Says “Too Soon For Syria Peace Conference” So Long As ISIS Gains Ground

August 13, 2015

In late July, as ISIS’ gains across Syria were televised all over Western media, the United Nations publicly announced that it was too soon for another Syrian peace conference.

The UN position was no doubt confusing to many half-cognizant observers since the United Nations is typically the loudest voice calling for peace talks (oftentimes half-heartedly) in any given confrontation. This time, however, the UN has thrown up its hands and essentially declared “it’s no use!”

The official reason for the UN declining to restart peace talks is that the two sides in the Syrian conflict could not agree on the most vital issue at hand – the Assad government’s transition from power.

At Geneva II, the Syrian government participated in the negotiations but rejected the forced abdication being demanded by terrorists and NATO countries. The terrorist and US-puppet contingent would hear of nothing that did not require a transition without Assad. After a communique’ was issued by the United Nations Secretary General that all had agreed upon the need for a “transitional government body with full executive powers,” the US balked and said that, in such a “transitional government,” Assad would have no place, essentially throwing much of the work of seemingly genuine parties like the Russians and Syrians into disarray.

It should be noted, however, that the United Nations, while attempting to appear neutral during the discussions, was clearly pushing for a transition. The UN was interested only in negotiating the terms of that transition as opposed to whether or not the transition would take place in the first place.

NC Activist Nicole Revels Discusses NC Backyard Chicken ID

Brandon Turbeville
Natural Blaze
August 11, 2015

The recent announcement of an attempt by North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to force backyard chicken owners to register their chickens with the department has brought quite a bit of attention to North Carolina. It has also brought quite a bit of controversy.

Most backyard chicken owners are balking at the idea of registration. The state of NC is very shadowy about their plans for the program and are anything but clear as to how this policy will be utilized in real terms.


As Heather Callaghan wrote in her article, "IS NC Requiring Barcodes For Backyard Chicken Owners?" for Natural Blaze,
Given the government's previous treatment of backyard gardeners, family farms and chicken owners, with the addition of destructive practices should an outbreak be declared and a general misunderstanding and mistreatment of independent growers - it isn't too surprising that backyard free-range owners are concerned about getting flagged in a database. If previous abuses like the Rawesome food raid and Morningland Dairy Cheese hadn't taken place, then maybe people would be happier to help without concerns of targeting and food source destruction.

MSM To Pro-Vaxxers: Don't Argue The Facts, Show Scary Pictures!

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
August 5, 2015

The Vaccine industry, Big Pharma, and the mainstream media have some advice for vaccine zealots attempting to bully parents questioning the safety or effectiveness of vaccines into changing their minds – Don’t argue the facts! Show scary pictures!

In what can only be described as an instruction manual as to how to shame, bully, and shout a person down who simply has a different take on the best and safest way to raise their children, it is clear that the religion of vaccines and “scientism” now has the hallmark of any faith determined to spread itself – the presence of evangelicals.

The new vaccine evangelical movement is being provided with a script sheet of what to say and what to avoid when attempting to convert others to their belief system. Like most religions, the goal among the leaders and the zealots is a world where differing modes of thought no longer exist and where other opinions no longer force them to question the way they view that world.

Articles like “How To Change An Anti-Vaxxer’s Mind” by Jeffrey Kloger of TIME, are a perfect example of the recent propaganda blitz coming from the mainstream media. Kloger’s article is being quickly copied and rewritten in mainstream media outlets all across the country with the real vitriol being found in the more trendy hipster markets.

The recent propaganda push is being based upon a study by researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It’s not certain exactly how much time and effort was put into the study to discover what most undergraduate marketing students and any remotely successful politician, salesman, or sociopath already knows – that scary pictures are more effective at convincing hordes of people of an idea (true or false) than facts, reasoning, or logic.

U.S. Agrees To Act As Terrorist Bodyguard; Open To Attacking Assad Forces

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
August 3, 2015

Fresh on the heels of the establishment of an "ISIL-Free Zone" (aka "No-Fly Zone") in northern Syria along the Turkish border, the United States has quietly announced that it will also extend its airstrike operations to act as the traveling bodyguard of the jihadists it has trained and “vetted.”

The policy, reportedly authorized by Barack Obama, would involve the US Air Force bombing any force attacking the so-called “moderate rebel fighters,"including the Syrian military.

The announcement was first reported on Sunday by the Wall Street Journal via anonymous military sources. The senior military official told the WSJ “For offensive operations, it’s ISIS only. But if attacked, we’ll defend them against anyone who’s attacking them. We’re not looking to engage the regime, but we’ve made a commitment to help defend these people.”

White House National Security Council spokesman, Alistair Baskey, stated “We won't get into the specifics of our rules of engagement, but have said all along that we would take the steps necessary to ensure that these forces could successfully carry out their mission.”

Pentagon spokeswoman Commander Elissa Smith, added to the statement by saying “We recognize, though, that many of these groups now fight on multiple fronts, including against the Assad regime, (Islamic State) and other terrorists.”

Turkey's War On The Kurds, ISIS Air Force Flies Again

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 31, 2015

Shortly before calling a NATO meeting under the pretense of concerns over its security, Turkey launched a bombing campaign across the border into Syria allegedly against the ISIS forces that it has supported, trained, and facilitated since the beginning of the Syrian crisis.

Very soon after the bombing campaign was launched there came the announcement that Turkey and the United States had agreed to implement an “ISIL Free Zone” otherwise known as a “No Fly Zone” in northern Syria.

Prior to the formal announcement of the “ISIL-Free/No-Fly Zone,” it was known that Turkey had launched a simultaneous attack on Kurdish targets in Iraq. After the announcement, these attacks on Kurdish targets intensified to greatly overshadow anything purporting to be an attack on ISIS.

Thus, as Turkey whines about the threat ISIS poses to its security, fresh on the heels of a dubious ISIS bombing of a political demonstration, Turkey has demonstrated that the real targets of its bombing campaign is not ISIS at all, it is the Kurds.

Since the 1980s, Turkey has been locked in a political and sometimes bloody military struggle with the Kurds inside its own borders. Turkish Kurds have provided political, military, and demonstrative opposition to the power structure inside Turkey for some time – at times calling for more rights and at other times calling for autonomy and even outright independence.

ALEC Behind Recent Push For Mandatory Vaccination - Congratulations Leftists, You Fell For KOCH!

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 30, 2015 

Over the last several months, Americans have witnessed an increase in media propaganda regarding the “dangers” of “anti-vaxxers,” the “proven science of vaccines,” and the “tragedies” that ensue from the failure to vaccinate. That propaganda blitz has resulted in massive hysteria stemming from similar levels of ignorance.

Also resulting from the push by Big Pharma-funded corporate media outlets is the emotional and panicked campaign of pro-vaxxers, vaccine pushers, and adherents to the relatively recent new religion of “scientism” – the religious belief in anything labeled as science or scientific, regardless of whether or not that concept directly contradicts observable reality and experience or even regardless of whether or not it is actually scientific.

The so-called vaccine debate – which is not truly a debate since a debate requires the participation of two opposing sides – is generally nothing more than a shouting and shaming campaign against parents who have come to the conclusion that vaccines are not safe, effective, or neither.

Indeed, it is the unbridled emotion of the pro-vaccine camp that has been provoked and subsequently harnessed into a powerhouse of vitriol and social pressure that is then presented as a public health crisis. The howling of the trendy masses, glued to their televisions, sitcoms, and NPR, is then presented as an organic public outcry in the media, resulting in the conveniently timed response of politicians and lawmakers.

Of course, with the creation of the false debate, there is also the political polarization of the issue – the left must be pitted against the right – in a typical but tried and true method of divide and conquer strategy.

A "No-Fly Zone" By Any Other Name - The "ISIL-Free Zone" In Syria

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 29, 2015 

As the NATO Article 4 meeting concludes with little or no fanfare and no major decisions made regarding a “no-fly zone” over Syria, many onlookers may take the opportunity to sit back in satisfaction that the meeting was concluded without any announcement of further direct military involvement in Syrian affairs. For many, the lackluster meeting was simply more proof that Turkey and the United States will not attempt a frontal assault on the Middle Eastern country.

Unfortunately, however, the big decision was not made at the NATO Article 4 meeting, it was made bilaterally days before between Turkey and the United States.

The new agreement effectively creates a “buffer zone” that will span from the Turkish border line into Syria. It will extend from Azaz in the East to Jarablus in the West and as far south as al-Bab. The width of the zone would be about 68 miles and would extend around 40 miles deep into Syria, right on the doorstep of Aleppo.

The zone will be much smaller than that which Turkey and the United States have been calling for over the last few years and will not even stretch the length of the Turkey-Syria border. But it is a start.

True to form, the US and Turkey are attempting to obfuscate the fact that their new agreement is the creation of a no-fly zone by renaming it an “ISIL-free zone.” This is the same tactic used when the term “no-fly zone” and “buffer zone” began to draw too much ire from observers only a year ago. Then, the term became “safe zone.” Now, the NATO powers are playing semantics yet again and deeming the area an “ISIL-free zone” as if it were merely the unveiling of a new soda minus a crucial ingredient.


No vote urged on GMO legislation

Posted on the Napa Valley Register on July 20, 2015

Where’s the Beef? Or, rather, where’s the beef coming from?

Earlier this year, the World Trade Organization ruled that the United States was engaging in unfair trade practices by allowing country-of-origin labeling on red meat. The U.S. House of Representatives quickly moved to submit legislation to remove country-of-origin labels on these products.

Unfortunately our congressman Mike Thompson (CA District 5) was one of the supporters of this legislation. This means that, if this bill is able to pass the Senate, it is quite possible that an individual purchasing one hamburger could actually be consuming meat from seven different countries. Since the country-of-origin labels would be removed, the consumer would have no way of knowing that this is the case.

Deregulating the meat industry, particularly if the passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) becomes a reality, is absolutely insane.

Meanwhile Monsanto darling, Rep. Mike Pompeo (KS District 4), just introduced a new bill H.R.1599 that could soon ban all mandatory GMO labeling in the U.S. This means it would reverse the results of any efforts at the state level to label GMO’s in California.

Is NC Requiring Barcodes for Backyard Chicken Owners?


Heather Callaghan
Posted to Natural Blaze on July 23, 2015 

The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is using the Midwestern poultry avian flu outbreak as an opportunity to decree new requirements for chicken farmers. These newly released rules - in case of a potential event - have prompted small family farms, and backyard chicken owners to wonder how cozy the Ag Commission wants to be - and what happens if a quarantine is declared.

9 WNCT News reports:
All poultry owners are now required to register for an NC Farm ID number, regardless of the number of birds owned.
This ID number will help the department to alert poultry owners about outbreaks. 
Owners can register online after August 1.
It's that word "regardless" that has people talking. Seriously - NCFarmID for one or two chickens? NCFarmID regardless. Some backyard chicken owners already don't appreciate what they feel is an invasive mandate. 

The Ag Department issued a press release. The designated information area specifically for backyard chickens reads:

Turkey's Call For "Safe Zones" In Syria Are Based On Problem Turkey Helped Create

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 27, 2015

As Turkey continues to bomb inside Syria and Iraq against alleged ISIS targets and PKK Iraqi Kurds, and as the NATO Article 4 meeting looms over the Middle East, Turkey has clearly taken yet another step toward its goal of establishing a “buffer zone” and “no-fly zone” over Syria.

Turkey has called Article 4 NATO meetings twice – once in 2003 and once in 2013. In the latter incident, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United states sent two PATRIOT anti-missile batteries each as well as soldiers trained in the operation of those missiles. Turkey is now requesting help with its border security due to the crisis in Syria and one can only wonder what the response of the rest of NATO will be when the meeting concludes.

Article 4 allows any member of NATO to “request assistance” when its “territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened".

Ironically, the crisis in Syria – in particular, the issue surrounding the Turkish-Syrian border – was largely the fault of Turkey itself as it helped train and funnel terrorists from inside its borders into Syria. Thus, the crisis is entirely one of its own making.

Turkey Calls Emergency NATO Meeting; 'No-Fly Zone' On The Horizon?

July 27, 2015

As Turkey continues to bomb  alleged ISIS targets in Syria and Kurdish targets in Iraq, it has now taken yet another step toward its goal of establishing a “buffer zone” and “no-fly zone” over Syria. This is because Turkey has now called an emergency NATO meeting scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

The meeting is an extraordinary act and is being justified under Article 4 of the NATO treaty.

Article 4 allows any member of NATO to “request assistance” when its “territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened."

In regards to the scheduled meeting, NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg stated that "Turkey requested the meeting in view of the seriousness of the situation after the heinous terrorist attacks in recent days, and also to inform Allies of the measures it is taking. NATO Allies follow developments very closely and stand in solidarity with Turkey."

According to SKY News’ Foreign Affairs Editor Sam Kiley, the Turks are requesting NATO surveillance aircraft along the Turkey-Syria border.

Kiley also suggested that Turkey was requesting the establishment of a Safe Zone (aka buffer zone/no-fly zone) over the northern portion of Syria on the border with Turkey.

Recent Turkey-Syria Border Clashes A Bad Omen Of Invasion?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 23, 2015

On Thursday (July 23, 2015), Turkey scrambled fighter jets and launched a small amount of ground forces into Syrian territory after clashes with ISIS fighters on the Turkey-Syria border.

Some are now wondering if the incident is an omen of a coming attack on Syria’s northern region.

The Turkish military claims that a Turkish border unit was attacked by 5 ISIS fighters armed with a rocket launcher and Kalishnikovs. The Turkish army unit reported that it had seized the weapons, killed one of the fighters, and destroyed three vehicles.

“The Daesh [Isis] terrorist who opened fire on our staff was killed and his ammunition was seized. […] Three vehicles belonging to the Daesh terrorists have been severely damaged in a fire attack,” the Turkish army statement said.

The Turkish Anadolu News Agency reported that one Turkish solider had been killed in the attack.

Turkish media also reported that F-16 fighter jets were being scrambled to the Turkish border in response to the incident.

The clashes come soon after Turkey announced a “crackdown” on ISIS across the country as well as after an ISIS bombing of a Kurdish demonstration. The PKK responded by taking the lives of two Kurdish policemen, threatening to throw the region back into the chaos it suffered years ago.

Israelis, Saudis Considering Attack on Iran in Wake of Nuke Deal

July 20, 2015 

I have argued from the very beginning of the US-Iran nuclear talks that the diplomacy taking place was nothing more than theatre to be used later in the rush to war as evidence that the US did “everything in its power” to avoid confrontation.

Considering the years of propaganda surrounding Iran and its nuclear program, it should be clear that the recent US-Iran nuclear deal was nothing more than a show. After all, the US/NATO imperialist machine has made its desire to wage war on the Persian nation explicit for some time. The only question is just how long this theatre will last before that goal is finally realized.

Considering the sizable reaction of warmongering and hysteria seeping from the mainstream Western press, the US Congress, Republicans, Conservatives, Israel, and Zionist supporters, the predictions that any deal with Iran will eventually be sabotaged, repealed, or violated, blamed on Iran, and ultimately used to initiate a military confrontation are clearly capable of coming true in the near future.

Granted, Obama supporters and Leftists across the country are hailing the deal as a wonderful display of the desire for world peace. But, for Obama supporters and Leftists, any act by Obama, even war, is considered a wonderful display of the desire for world peace. However, the Western and Western-allied press has erupted in panic and horror that the “solution” to the phantom Iranian nuclear problem was anything short of total war.

New Obama Initiative To Ban Guns For Some Social Security Recipients, Veterans, and Disabled

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 19, 2015

Whenever one thinks the Obama administration’s war on the Second Amendment couldn’t get any more insane, Barack Obama prances onto the stage to prove everyone wrong yet again.

This time, it is not merely a carefully planned and orchestrated jig on the graves of mass shooting victims or pathetic whining about “gun crime” and the amount of time he must give regarding the issue. It is a push to ban a large number of Social Security benefits recipients from owning guns.

That’s correct. When the Obama administration can’t get its way by attacking gun owners head on, it merely turns to extorting the elderly and disabled whom it holds hostage via their need to receive Social Security benefits – benefits I might add, that are owed to them.

Thus, the Obama administration is pushing to prohibit Social Security benefit recipients from owning firearms if they “lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs,” a move which the Los Angeles Times reports would affect millions of people whose disability payments – for one reason or another – are handled by other people.

The idea is to bring the Social Security Administration under the jurisdiction of laws that regulate who gets reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a database that was initially supposed to pertain to illegal immigrants, drug addicts, and felons.

Kuwait Mandates DNA Database For All Residents

Never a country known for its human rights and civil liberties, Kuwait is now attempting to take the lead in the Gulf for the country most integrated with the technological control grid and biometric surveillance state.

This is because the small nation recently announced the passage of a law that mandates every person residing in Kuwait must submit to a DNA sample that will be stored in a massive database upon penalty of fines and jail time.

Kuwait has 1.3 million citizens that will be subject to the law but its 2.9 million foreign residents are subject as well.

Any person who refuses to submit to the DNA tests and data mining operation will be subject to $33,000 in fines and up to one year in prison. Any person who provides a fake sample will face up to seven years.

Kuwait passed this law conveniently after an Islamic State (and thus NATO-directed) bombing of a Shiite mosque on June 26. The law is being justified as a way to make it easier for law enforcement to track down criminals and terrorists after the attacks have been committed. Thus, the incident stands as another Problem-Reaction-Solution-style terrorist attack justifying an even more totalitarian police state response.

“We have approved the DNA testing law and approved the additional funding. We are prepared to approve anything needed to boost security measures in the country,” independent MP Jamal Al Omar said.

New Hacker Video Claims To Show Staged Beheading Footage

Video allegedly stolen from John McCain's staff.

John McCain’s sordid history with ISIS, terrorism, and color revolutions has been demonstrated time and time again. However, if a new video released by Ukrainian hacker group Cyber Berkut turns out to be real, McCain’s ties to terrorism and domestic pro-war propaganda have become even more demonstrative.

Only days ago, Cyber Berkut released a video purporting to show the studio creation of one of the famous ISIS beheadings of Western journalists. The video shows a “movie studio” complete with camera and directing crew as well as a small stage set with background and dirt for setting.

On his knees is what appears to be a bald man some are claiming to be Steven Sotloff (although others suggest James Foley); and to his side is another individual dressed in all black with his face covered in the same way as “Jihadi John” in the videos blasted across the television screens of Western audiences during the drum up to the bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria.

The hacker group claims it came into possession of the video by hacking into a device belonging to a member of John McCain’s staff while the Senator was visiting Ukraine.

The group wrote in a description of the video (translated from Russian):

Long Prison Term Given to Man Who Shot DEA Agent He Thought Was Home Intruder

Brandon Turbeville

July 10, 2015

On a brisk fall night in Orangeburg, SC, Joel Robinson awoke in the hours just before dawn to the sound of intruders. These intruders had burst into Robinson’s house unwelcome and unannounced, storming inside with guns drawn.

Fearing for his life, Robinson did what any self-respecting and threatened individual would do – he picked up his gun and fired on the assailants, hitting one in the arm. Unfortunately for Robinson, these assailants were DEA agents, a special kind of home intruder who believe they have the right to invade a person’s home in the middle of the night, draw guns on them, and face no repercussions.

Again, unfortunately for Robinson, the judicial system seems to agree with the DEA in that they are not only above the law but clearly a higher class of citizen that has the authority to violate every right in the book, threaten citizens with death and bodily harm, and there is nothing the victim can do but beg for the officers’ kindness not to kill him.

In fact, that is virtually what the court proceedings have revealed in Robinson’s trial.

Joel Robinson was given 8 years in prison for shooting the DEA agent Barry Wilson. Robinson shot Wilson in the arm, breaking his elbow and forearm. While Wilson should be apologetic and thankful to Robinson that this illegal and aggressive action did not result in the loss of his life, Wilson instead chose to dramatize the issue by stating, “Two inches higher, it would have been a head shot. Two inches lower, it could have gone under my (bulletproof) vest.”

Lindsey Graham Wants 20,000 U.S. Troops In Iraq And Syria

It appears that – with few exceptions – the 2016 elections will be an exercise where candidates jockey for the title of biggest warmonger. Of course, that contest would have been won long ago if rhetoric and war psychosis were the only criteria.

SC Senator Lindsey Graham has indeed received a head start in the competition for his regular incitements to war, most vociferous support of foreign entanglements, and the most psychotic suggestions for US foreign policy.

Graham recently attempted to clinch the win by giving his “first major foreign policy speech” at the Atlantic Council “think tank” offices in Washington, D.C. Graham’s speech was designed to stand as a preview as to what he would do if elected President, a speech that shortly turned into a list of countries he would bomb, countries he would invade, and countries he would both bomb and invade.

Graham then went on to pronounce that he believed the U.S. should commit 20,000 troops to the Syria and Iraq regions in order to “fight ISIS,” the same terrorist organization that his friend John McCain helped organize, train, fund, and direct.

Graham wants to increase the number of U.S. “military advisers” on the ground in Iraq from 3,500 to 10,000 and to include “special forces.” He wants a similar number contributed on the ground in Syria.

Graham also laughably stated that Iran poses “the greatest existential threat to the world order” today and that, if the Iranians refused to knuckle under and accept the U.S. demands as opposed to a deal (which itself is an insult to a sovereign nation), he would commit the United States to yet another war.

Is Ukraine The Next In Line For Default?

As Greece concludes its vote to reject IMF austerity measures and impossible “debt repayment mechanisms” and as the Puerto Rican debt cauldron bubbles off the shores of the United States, there is yet another country whose debts to private bankers, the IMF, and other “creditors” is about to come due – Ukraine.

Around the end of July, approximately $15.3 billion dollars of bonds will be due to be paid to a wide variety of creditors – government, IMF, and private holders. On July 26, however, Ukraine will be unable to pay the money it owes to those creditors.

Interestingly enough, when the Greek default hung in the air along with the possibility of the continued rejection of IMF austerity measures, compounded with the likelihood that the Greeks would begin to pursue a new policy of independence, sovereignty, and dirigism, the result was media and financier panic. That panic is not being played out over the Western airwaves when it comes to the question of Ukraine, however.

Indeed, another curious aspect to the looming Ukrainian default is the apparent haggling and scrambling on the part of the IMF to ensure that the country continues to implement austerity, pay its private creditors (except Russia), and pay the IMF while staying afloat, at least on paper. After all, when the Greeks announced (as the IMF later admitted in its own report) that the debt it owed was unpayable and unserviceable, the reactions from the IMF and the Eurogarchs were quite different – either make all the payments and implement all the austerity measures or face the wrath of the world financial elite.

Carving Out Kurdistan - The US/NATO Plan To Break Up Syria and Iraq

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 3, 2015

Over the last few months, Americans who pay attention to current events have been treated to a surprising barrage of praise coming from the mainstream media regarding the Kurdish fighters in Syria. The Kurds have been presented as true freedom fighters and an opposition that the US can justify supporting, at least at some level, against ISIS.

Much of this praise is well-deserved. Kurdish fighters have indeed fought bravely against ISIS, dealing blow after blow to the Western-backed terrorist group on a number of occasions. Indeed, the Kurds have fought so skillfully that the US was quick to steal credit for a high-profile operation that was actually conducted by Syrian and Iraqi Kurds – the rescue of trapped Yazidis on the top of Mt. Sinjar.

The resolve that Kurdish fighters showed in their fight against ISIS at Ayn al-Arab (aka Kobane) was extraordinary as was their understanding of the necessity for coordination and cooperation with the Syrian government with regards to issues containing mutual strategic self-interest for both parties.

The West, however, particularly NATO spear-headed by the United States has long had much a much different interest in the Kurdish fighters and their relationship to the region and the conflict currently raging there. Indeed, the Kurds have long acted as a force which the US has been able to harness to stir up destabilization in the Iraqi, Syrian, Turkish, and Iranian sphere. Such is the case now, as the US and NATO powers seek to use the Kurdish desire for an independent country – Kurdistan – as a destabilizing force against Syria, Iraq, and Iran and a galvanizing force for the Turks. Whether or not the Kurds will ever obtain such an independent state, however, remains to be seen.

Now Jordan Announces Plans To Invade Syria

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 1, 2015

Just one day after Turkey’s announcement of plans to invade Syria by implementing a “no-fly zone” or “buffer zone,” Jordan has now announced that it is considering doing the same.

According to a report by the Financial Times published on Monday, the Jordanians also plan to implement a “buffer zone” on the southern border with Syria, stretching across the provinces of Deraa and Suwayda. The “buffer zone” would most likely include the city of Deraa and, like the Turkish incarnation, a “militarized zone” to “separate the buffer area from government forces.”

While the Jordanian military would obviously be involved, the zone would largely be manned by terrorists receiving support from the United States and the West.

Despite the fact that the “buffer zone” is being given the coloration of a humanitarian effort to end the fighting, protect the Jordanian border, and provide an area for refugees to gather, the fact that the Free Syrian Army fanatics and other “anti-Assad rebels” known to civilized humans as cannibals, rapists, and murderers, is a clear signal that there is nothing humanitarian about this measure.

Turkey Plans To Invade Syria

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
June 30, 2015

Even worrying members of his own government, Turkish President Recep Erdogan is showing the world just how he earned his being shown the door in the last election. This is because Erdogan has recently announced plans to invade Syria, occupy a swath of land on the southern Turkey/Norther Syria border, and establish a buffer zone there.

In the past, Turkey has sent troops into Syria under the guise of protecting a Turkish enclave in Syrian territory but, in reality, the operation was an attempt to provide cover for Western-backed terrorists moving against the Syrian government. The Turks have also committed sizeable amounts of their intelligence agents and “special ops” crews to Syria.

This recent announcement, however, involves the commitment of Turkish Air Force and infantry which will then be used to not only establish a “buffer zone” in Northern Syria but also to occupy that zone.

Turkey’s plan, arranged by Erdogan through a series of rule changes to Turkish law, is being justified on the basis of the Syrian refugee crisis. Erdogan suggests that by creating a “buffer zone” in Syria, Syrian refugees will have a larger area in which to find shelter, particularly a larger area that is not Turkey. Yet Erdogan is not using the plan only for the benefit of Turkey’s humanitarian relief assistance programs or the Syrian refugees.

While Erdogan’s public presentation of the plan also involves combating ISIS in Syria, the truth is that the military operation will be a battle against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad and the Kurdish forces carving out their own independent country in the areas bordering and possibly encompassing Turkey.

US Admits Paying Terrorists For Services Rendered In Syria

When researchers such as myself have reported that the United States is funding al-Qaeda, Nusra, ISIS and other related terror organizations in Syria, we were not kidding. Still, despite the fact that even the U.S. government itself has admitted that it was funding terroristsdirectly and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the suggestion was met with disbelief, ridicule, or either entirely ignored.

Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists on the ground in Syria yet again, this time placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.

According to the Pentagon, Syrian “rebels” being trained and “vetted” by the United States are receiving “compensation” to the tune of anywhere between $250 to $400 per month to act as America’s proxy forces in the Middle East. Reuters reports that the payment levels were confirmed by the Pentagon and also that the Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter and Navy Commander Elissa Smith both separately admitted the fact that these “new” terrorists are receiving a stipend.

Reuters also reported on alleged obstacles the Pentagon claims it is facing regarding the ability to train the death squad volunteers due to a lack of ability to “vet” them appropriately as well as a bizarre incident where fighters abandon the mission after having received training from the US military. The reason provided by the Pentagon was that the fighters did not want to sign a contract to avoid fighting Assad. But, in the same report, the Pentagon states that there was no such contract – only one requiring them to “respect human rights” and “the rule of law,” so the reason provided for the disappearance of these fighters lacks legitimacy. One can only speculate as to where these “trainees” disappeared to.

Hastert Allegations Open Window To History of Satanic Ritual Abuse Of Children

With recent allegations coming out against former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert regarding not only financial impropriety but a number of sexual abuse accusations, one can scarcely pay attention to current events without recalling child sex abuse scandals that have taken place in the past, especially since many of the names appearing next to Hastert’s in media reports are the same names that have appeared in previous scandals.

Only a few weeks ago, Hastert was indicted on charges that he “structured bank transactions to avoid triggering red flags and then lied about those cash withdrawals to the FBI.”

As CNN reports,
The technical nature of the underlying criminal charges became an afterthought within days of Hastert's indictment when law enforcement sources confirmed his case was about gay sex with underage students decades ago, when he was a high school teacher and coach. 
The former speaker was arraigned Tuesday in a Chicago federal courtroom.

Separately, a woman told reporters that her brother had said his first gay sexual experience was with Hastert when he was a teen and Hastert was a school faculty member.

The brother, Steve Reinboldt, died of AIDS in 1995.
