Syrian Analyst, Afraa Dagher To U.S.: "Is It Normal To Kill Kids, Women? Is This Normal For You?

After a series of coordinated suicide bombings rocked the Syrian coast, killing over one hundred innocent civilians, Syrians are becoming even more frustrated with the hypocrisy of the West, not only in terms of the faux solidarity expressed when Belgium and France were attacked and the subsequent silence when it comes to Syria, but also in the constant Western whining about a “war on terror” that is made up of supporting and directing the very terror organizations it tells its own population it is trying to defeat.

Nowhere outside of its own borders does anyone truly believe that the United States represents freedom and democracy. That lie is reserved for hundreds of millions residing in the U.S., constantly plugged in to American media and the constant barrage of pro-war propaganda. It is thus highly ironic that it is the American people who are the key to stopping the American war machine from its continued march across the rest of the world before finally running out of steam and coming back home to march upon its own population.

Still, Syrians, over 6,000 miles away from the United States, besieged by five years of intense warfare, are fully aware of who has brought this destruction to their doorsteps even if Americans are still unaware that the destruction is even taking place.

In an interview with Aimee Anderson of ED TV, Afraa Dagher a Syrian political analyst currently residing in Syria, expressed much of that frustration. After reporting the facts of the recent bombings, Dagher stated what many Syrians feel and what any informed observed can easily see for himself. She said,

There is a mastermind behind this. Such [an] attack is well-organized and is planned. . . . . It is an organized plan to destroy our infrastructure, battle stations, hospitals, electricity directorate, many of our important and sensitive sides, killing our people. So called Ahrar al-Sham announced their responsibility but the U.S. refuses to designate it or to classify it as a terrorist group in [at] the U.N. Later, the so-called ISIS declared its responsibility. As I said, [there is] no presence for those [ISIS] in our cities in the coastal line. They are just a cover. At the time, Israel[i] media was so happy to announce that this is a great attempt to kill those [who support] Assad and who support their government. Al Jazeera also reported it as ISIS. It is not ISIS. It is the “moderate rebels.” The “moderate rebels” of the West bombing Assad’s stronghold.


Which Terrorists Bombed Jobleh, Tartus? ISIS Or 'Moderate' Terrorists?

A series of coordinated and organized suicide bombings across the Syrian coast on Monday has left around 120 people dead. Despite the worldwide expression of solidarity that occurred during the Paris and Belgian attacks, however, there has been no mention of the Syrian attacks nor has there been any mass expression of condolences and solidarity with Syria.

The attacks took place in both Tartus and Jobleh, two cities that are fiercely loyal to the Syrian government and where two Russian bases are located. Syrian state media has reported a lower death toll than that of the West and the terrorist-supporting “activists” (or, rather “activist”) known as the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.

Two or three blasts took place in Tartus while four explosions took place in Jobleh, with one bomber captured after his blast failed to take his life along with this victims. The blasts were coordinated to take place at a time when the target areas were expected to be crowded with civilians. In Jobleh, the bombings hit a busy bus station, a government electricity office, and an emergency room hospital entrance. In Tartus, the bombs hit a residential neighborhood and another bus station.

Ziad Fadel of Syrian Perspective provides a timeline of the bombings. He writes:

9:00 a.m. – we are at the entrance to the Jabla Transportation Garage, essentially a taxi and bus station, where people come into the town from nearby areas, including Tartous and Banyaas, to shop, attend school or transact business. This time is the busiest of the day before 8:00 p.m. when crowds begin returning to their destinations. A Toyota pickup, manufactured by the conformist and amoral Japanese, – bought by the Saudi cockroaches – was driven into the entry area and parked there. The pickup was stuffed with 350 kgs of C-4 (Semtex) and sundry metal items, like ball bearings and nails, to insure more lethality. It was detonated by remote control. The Syrian Security Services are now sweeping the area in search of a male suspected of being the trigger-man.

What's The Big Difference Between NATO's Moderates And Extremists In Syria?

isis_constitutionBrandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 25, 2016

So what’s the big difference between the “moderate” terrorists and the extremist terrorists running rampant in Syria today? At one time, we were told there were no terrorists at all. Then, we were told terrorists were indeed present but that there were also moderate, secular, democracy-loving freedom fighters in the country. Now, after the nature of the so-called “rebels” has been revealed ad infinitum by the alternative and independent press, it is admitted that the “fighters” in Syria are terrorists but, apparently, some are moderate and some are extreme.

Of course, they all have the same goal of Sharia. They all hate minorities, Christians, Alawites, Shiites, etc. They all torture. They all rape. We could go on and on. In the world of the West’s “rebels,” there is not one shred of difference between any of the armed groups fighting against the secular Syrian government besides the names they call themselves.

Still, we are told there are clear differences and that the U.S. State Department knows just what they are. Only, they aren’t telling the American people. Or the Russians. Or the Syrians. Or anybody. The “moderate” terrorists are thus a very mysterious force, a group of which we may speak but also one that never shows itself.

Of course, there are groups that the United States admits are brutal killers but somehow rationalizes to the public that they are “our” brutal killers. The U.S. can, at times, be forced to admit that the groups it supports as “freedom fighters” have committed atrocities, rapes, murders, torture, and establishment of Islamic theocracy upon unwilling inhabitants. Essentially, the U.S. can admit (when pressured) that these groups have the same ideology as ISIS, although the State Department will never say these exact words.

Thus, it is clear that any designation of terrorists groups as “extremist” or “moderate” is obviously based on political motivation and geopolitical designs, not the nature or action of the terrorist group in question. If that were the case, then Ahrar al-Sham, Jaish al-Islam, and other groups would easily be listed as terrorist organizations that would subsequently not be covered under the “ceasefire” agreement. After all, there is no distinguishing characteristic that sets these groups apart from ISIS or Nusra other than a name.

Is Saudi Arabia Going Broke?

May 23, 2016

Any informed observer, by now, should be fully aware that the Saudi’s are hurting financially. That is, they are hurting as much as any degenerate hedonistic ruling class of genetic royalty can be. But, while Saudi princes roll around in money and women and unspeakably depraved forms of entertainment and while they oversee a nation of slaves and prisoners, the bank accounts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are now at a low point.

After years of decadence and willingness to lavishly fund terror and propaganda all across the world and after agreeing to work with the United States in a suicidal attempt to hurt Russia at the oil export pump, Saudi Arabia is finally starting to realize that there may actually be a bottom to their bank accounts.

Even as major Saudi corporations begin going belly up (the Bin Laden group is essentially bankrupt), the Saudi government is now openly considering its massive contracting population in IOUs and tradable bonds.

As Bloomberg reports,

Saudi Arabia has told banks in the country that it is considering giving contractors IOUs to settle some outstanding bills, according to people with knowledge of the discussions. 
As payment from the state, contractors would receive bond-like instruments which they could hold until maturity or sell on to banks, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private. Companies have received some payments in cash and the rest could come in the "I-owe-you" notes, the people said, adding that no decisions have been made on the measures.

L’Algeria si avvicina al Blocco anti-NATO

Brandon Turbeville
Republished and translated into Italian by:

May 21, 2016

Mentre la crisi siriana si trascina e le speranze di una risoluzione pacifica o, per lo meno, del ritorno alla relativa normalità in Libia sembrano molto distanti, l’Algeria dovrebbe, ormai, iniziare a sospettare che possa presto trovarsi nel mirino anglo-statunitense. Vi sono sempre più prove che l’Algeria fa proprio questo. Dopo essere sopravvissuta al tentativo di destabilizzazione d’ispirazione occidentale e alla “primavera araba”, rivoluzione colorata orchestrata dall’occidente, l’Algeria ha fatto tutto il possibile per aumentare la sicurezza ai confini. Perciò ha una maggiore cooperazione con la vicina Tunisia, bersaglio dei terroristi sostenuti dalle nazioni occidentali e del GCC. Dopo aver agito rapidamente e con pugno di ferro, ogni tentativo d’interferire nel governo algerino è stato annullato durante le rivoluzioni colorate e la destabilizzazione ideate dagli USA. Tuttavia, anche se le proteste della “primavera araba” furono brevi e inefficaci, l’Algeria non si è semplicemente riposata sugli allori successivamente. In realtà, l’Algeria si è mossa per aumentare la sicurezza e migliorare le capacità militari collaborando con i vicini per garantirsi che non siano preda di destabilizzazione o rivoluzioni colorate in futuro. L’Algeria ha anche approfondito i legami con la Russia e i Paesi che fanno parte del Blocco anti-NATO, non ufficiale ma sempre più evidente. In altre parole, l’Algeria si avvicina al blocco multipolare delle nazioni che cercano di agire come forza contraria alle potenze della NATO.

Due esempi notevoli di maggiore cooperazione tra Algeria e l’alleanza anti-NATO sono la recente consegna di 40 elicotteri d’attacco dalla Russia e la recente visita diplomatica in Siria del governo algerino. L’elicottero, noto come “Night Hunter” viene indicato come uno dei migliori al mondo, in grado di svolgere missioni di giorno, notte e in condizioni climatiche avverse. L’elicottero è dotato della capacità di modificarne la guida permettendo al velivolo di essere pilotato dal pilota e dall’operatore. La consegna degli elicotteri russi all’Algeria non è una novità. Nel 2005-2006 la Russia le fornì 28 Su-30MKA, 16 addestratori Jak-130 e 185 carri armati T-90S. Nel 2015, un contratto venne firmato per la fornitura di 14 caccia Su-30MKA nel 2016-2017. Il trasferimento degli elicotteri Mi-28 è il risultato di un accordo bilaterale tra Russia e Algeria. “L’esercito algerino è soddisfatto dalla qualità delle armi russe, dimostratesi ottime nelle condizioni particolari di qui, nel deserto con temperature estremamente elevate e tempeste di sabbia. Quindi ci sono buone prospettive per proseguire una stretta cooperazione nel settore tecnico-militare su una vasta serie di forniture“, aveva detto Aleksandr Zolotov, ambasciatore russo in Algeria, a RIA Novosti. Eppure, se le consegne non sono una notizia di per sé, il contesto in cui si verificano vanno discusse.

Things are tight for most of us and yet we want to help other, including those doing valuable work for all of us.

To do that, we have to shift into abundance and gratitude. When we give when we feel strapped ourselves, we become strong because we are actually making a real difference and doing something beautiful in giving. In truth, we're helping ourselves and all we care about.

Brandon Turbeville is a very good example of someone doing invaluable investigative work. He's been exposing the big "humanitarian" NGOs which are covertly part of the war machine.

But he's just done something more and quite unusual. He's the first person in the country to arrange for his donors to be part of helping get word out about GMOs - and in a very funny way - to kids (and adults).





Russian Aircraft Carrier Said To Be Heading To Syrian Coast By End Of Summer

May 20, 2016

After the small draw down of Russian troops and aircraft from Syria, the Western media could not contain itself from making claims that the Russians were running scared from their battle with ISIS, despite the fact that the Russian-Syrian alliance had done more to destroy the group in weeks than the U.S. had done in years.

But, while the Russian draw down was itself limited and merely a change in strategy after the initial phase of Russian involvement had been completed, it appears that Russia is now ordering another round of military equipment to Syria.

This time, instead of committing planes and personnel to land bases inside Syria, Russia is sending its aircraft carrier, the Admiral Kuznetsov, to the Meditteranean.

VoltaireNet describes the capabilities of the carrier by writing:

The aircraft-carrier Admiral Kuznetsov (Projet 1143) is driven by gas turbines, has a displacement of 65,000 tonnes, and was launched in December 1990 at naval shipyard n° 444 South at Nikolaev, which was then in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine. It was built to carry between 52 to 55 planes and helicopters. The Admiral Kuznetsov is armed with eight AK-630-type AA artillery systems (2x30mm), eighteen 3K95 Kinzhal-type AA missile launchers, twelve ship-to-ship P-700 Granit missile launchers (range of 620 km, speed Mach 2,5) and two UDAW-1 anti-submarine missile launchers. 
The Minister of Defence for the Russian Federation has declared that the completion of repairs for the aircraft-carrier has been advanced to the 1st July 2016. This is why it will not carry only MiG-29 K/KUB, but will also keep some Su-33. Its new configuration will include twelve Su-33 multi-role aircraft, twenty-eight multi-role MiG 29 K/KUB, four Su-25UTG/UBP training and ground attack planes, and eight Ka-27 anti-submarine combat helicopters. 

Monsanto Threatens Argentina Over Recent Food Inspection Decision

Natural Blaze

In yet one more example of how Monsanto will stop at nothing to achieve total domination of the food supply, the major agricultural corporation is now attempting to use its toxic product as leverage against the Argentinian government.

After a dispute between Monsanto and Argentina regarding the inspection of genetically modified soybeans, Monsanto has now announced that it intends to suspend future soybean technologies in Argentina. Monsanto’s move will leave many Argentine farmers who used the company’s biotech products without the new Xtend technology scheduled to be deployed in Argentina allegedly aimed at increasing soy yields as well as controlling glyphosate-resistant, broad-leaf weeds, another problem created by Monsanto itself. The dispute centered around the fact that Monsanto was demanding that private exporting companies act as inspectors to ensure that agricultural products trademarked to the company (although even this is disputed by farmers) were not being sold. The Argentine government ruled that only the government had the authority to act as a food inspector.

Monsanto said it was “disappointed” in the manner in which the direction the dispute has taken and that “the company plans to take measures to protect its current assets and will suspend launching any future soybean technologies in the country.”

Soybeans are Argentina’s main cash crop and the country is the number one exporter of soy mill livestock feed. Unfortunately Argentina farmers now rely heavily on Monsanto to produce those soybeans. Thus, the move by the corporation has sent many Argentinian farmers into panic mode.

Ultimately, Monsanto is one corporation who would be doing the world a favor by taking its ball and going home. Decades of environmental destruction, chronic health conditions and death – all direct results of Monsanto and its products – have left the company in a situation where it is hard-pressed to show one positive thing it has ever done for mankind. Indeed, it seems almost impossible for Monsanto to show one product that was at least not harmful.

MSM Can’t Understand Why Consumers Want Non-GMO Despite Industry Science

Brandon Turbeville
May 19, 2016

The mainstream media seems oddly perplexed.

A few days after a report released by the National Research Council claiming to “prove” that GMOs are safe to eat and are harmless, data still shows that customers want non-GMO food and they are doing whatever they can to get it.

Many outlets are now asking the question “why don’t consumers seem to care about the NRC report? Why don’t they seem to care about the ‘science!?!?!?'”

After all, as USA Today reports,

Concern over GMO ingredients has grown in recent years, swept along by local ballot measures that proposed requirements for labeling foods with GMOs. Increasingly, the phrase GMO became part of the question about what’s considered safe, healthy and natural food. Sales of foods labeled as non-GMO have gone from $12.9 billion in 2012 to $21.2 billion in the year ended April 30, according to Nielsen.

And all this in the middle of an economic depression.


Darren Seifer, food and beverage industry analyst at the NPD group has an answer. According to Seifer, the debate is “based on fear, not logic.” Of course, the debate is partly based on fear. Consumers are generally fearful of contracting cancer, chronic illness, and irrevocable environmental destruction. The fact that GMOs pollute and distort the natural environment is well established and the science demonstrating harmful effects to humans is also there despite the need to save pennies to fund it. So Seifer is obviously wrong when he says that anti-GMO activists are illogically fearful. They have a logical basis for their claims and are fearful of legitimate and quite possible outcomes.

Algeria Readies Itself For Potential Western Shift In Strategy, Moves Closer To Russia, Anti-NATO Bloc

Algeria2Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 18, 2016

As the Syrian crisis drags on and hopes of a peaceful resolution or, at the very least, a return to relative normalcy in Libya seem very distant, Algeria should, by now, begin suspecting that it might soon find itself in the Anglo-American crosshairs. There is now rapidly growing evidence that Algeria is doing just that.

Having survived an attempted destabilization during the Western-inspired and Western-orchestrated “Arab Spring” color revolution, Algeria has been doing whatever it can to increase security in, on, and around its borders. For this reason, it has increased cooperation with its neighbor Tunisia, which has been the target of terrorists backed by the West and GCC nations.

Having acted quickly and with an iron fist, any attempt to disrupt the functioning of the Algerian government was quashed during the stream of U.S.-engineered color revolutions and destabilizations. Yet, even though the “Arab Spring” style protests were short-lived and ineffective, Algeria has not simply rested on its laurels in the aftermath. In fact, Algeria has moved to increase security, improve its military capabilities, and work with its neighbors to ensure that they do not fall prey to destabilizations or color revolutions in the future.

Algeria has also moved to deepen its ties with Russia and those countries that are part of an unofficial but growing and obvious anti-NATO bloc. In other words, Algeria is moving closer to joining the multi-polar collection of nations attempting to act as a counterforce to the NATO powers.


Turkey's Erdogan Expresses Need To "Rescue" Crimea, Nagorno-Karabkh

The 13th Islamic Summitt entitled “Unity And Solidarity For Justice And Peace,” set up by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (IOC) took place on April 12 in Istanbul, Turkey and yielded some revealing but certainly not unsuspected news. At the summit, chaired by Turkish President Recep Erdogan, more signs emerged of a Turkish/GCC attempt to not only continue to destabilize Syria but an attempt to extend the destabilization into Eurasia, up to the Russian border, and even inside Russian territory itself.

During the course of the summit, then-Turkish Prime Minister Davitoglu addressed the issues of the “Occupied Islamic Territories,” i.e. Palestine, Nagorno-Karabkh, and Crimea and expressed concerns about the development of those situations. He stated that these areas needed to be rescued via cultural, religious, and “other” means although he was not specific as to what these “other” means might be. He also referred to the Crimean issue as one of the main issues of the summit.

Although the Turkish version of the summit’s communique was not ultimately not accepted by the group, the communique that was produced condemned “Armenian aggression” in Nagorno-Karabkh and expressed “interest” in the Crimean situation.

It should also be noted that Mustafa Dzhemilev, former chairman of the Mejlis Of the Crimean Tatar People, was presented by the summit as the only legitimate representative of the Crimean people. Dzhemilev held a joint meeting with the Turkish and Azeri presidents during the course of the summit.

Monsanto CEO Has “Feels” Hurt By GMO Debate

monsantoBrandon Turbeville
May 17, 2016

Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s CEO, is having a rough time these days. He’s upset about the state of the country and uncivilized debates. More specifically, Grant is upset over the “heated rhetoric” surrounding the GMO debate in America.

“The thing that drives [me] a little bit nuts, and is the frustrating piece in this, is it’s such a polarized debate and I don’t think it should be.” said Grant in an interview with CNN Money.

It’s not surprising that Grant would feel frustrated now. After nearly two decades of force-feeding Americans toxic substances that masquerade as food or soaked in pesticides, Americans are finally coming around to the idea that perhaps eating real food is better than eating Monsanto‘s “product.”

Grant claims he is troubled by the heated rhetoric and angry nature of the debate, meaning he is troubled by the anger and vitriol of anti-GMO activists. Grant obviously longs for the days when Americans would simply line up to the trough and eat whatever came out of his bucket. More so, we can imagine that Grant longs for the days when Americans did not even know they were eating slop.

But now that millions of Americans are aware of what Monsanto has been piling on their plates for so long, and after numerous reports and studies have been produced demonstrating the danger of GMOs, a number of Americans have predictably found themselves a little peeved.

This has indeed led to the use of heated rhetoric on the part of anti-GMO activists who feel that cancer was not exactly what they signed up for when they went to their local grocery store. Backtalk from the plebs, however, has caused Grant’s “feels” to be hurt and his emotions stirred into an uproar. Why can’t these people just shut up and eat the stuff we snuck onto their plates for 20 years? After all, they’ve been eating it for decades and didn’t even know – why complain now?


Report Shows “Respected” NRC Scientists Bound To Big Ag

May 17, 2016

On the day before the National Research Council was scheduled to release its “multi-year research report” regarding GMO food and GM crops, Food and Water Watch has released its own report revealing numerous conflicts of interest at both the NRC and the National Academy of Sciences.

The report entitled, “Under the Influence: the National Research Council on GMOS,” details millions of dollars of donations by biotech companies and Big Ag companies like Monsanto to the NRC and provides evidence of a pact-panel of scientists enlisted by the NRC to conduct studies on GMOs. Food and Water Watch describes what is essentially a revolving door of staff directors at the NRC who move back and forth between the federally chartered organization and Big Ag corporations.

Food and Water Watch also presents evidence that the NRC regularly provides scientific conclusions on agricultural issues that are heavily watered down and mostly based on industry science. Indeed, while major corporations involved in the biotech industry and pro-GMO academics are welcome in the NRC, critics are shunned.

According to Food and Water Watch,

With the NRC’s 2016 report, more than half of the experts selected to participate in the project have apparent conflicts, such as receiving research funding from industry, developing GMOs (or patents), consulting for industry or working for industry-funded organizations… Some of these scientist also have promoted GMOs in the media or lobbied government regulators in favor of GMOs.


Big Candy Breaks Up With GMO Sugar Beets, Leaves GM Producers In Lurch

May 17, 2016

Despite a world-wide economic depression, U.S. consumers appear to be fighting back against the power of Big Agri and GMO food corporations. After seizing control of virtually all the means of production of sugar beets, GM food corporations might be getting dealt a blow that resembles a self-imposed checkmate.

Ever since around eight years ago, almost all the sugar beet farmers in the United States started growing GMO sugar beets. These GM beets are genetically modified to tolerate Roundup, aka glyphosate, obviously Monsanto and other Big Ag companies were quite pleased with the status quo. But in the past two years, with an increase in awareness about the dangers of GMOs, consumers have begun to demand another option for their sugar goods, seek out sweets that do not contain GMOs and pressure manufacturers to discontinue using the GMO sugar beets.

Big Ag is not accustomed to changing their behavior based on a consumer. In fact, Big Ag’s motto seems to be “Eat GMOs or starve.” But because of the change in the consumer appetite, manufacturers have, at the very least, seen dollar signs in regards to the non-GMO sugar beet market.

For instance, Hershey’s, one of the largest sugar users in the country, has begun transitioning from GMO sugar beets to sugar cane – a plant that is not currently genetically modified.

Deborah Arcoleo, director of product transparency at the Hershey Company said:

We started reformulating Hershey’s Kisses, Hershey’s milk chocolate, and Hershey’s milk chocolate with almonds, to move from beet sugar to cane sugar, and that’s complete. Now we’re looking to do that across the rest of our portfolio, to the extent that we can.

Country Artist Debuts New Song Opposing War In Syria, Iran, Iraq: Previous Material Decries Drug War, Praises Psychedelics

Sturgill_Simpson-7095-1024x683Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 13, 2016

When Sturgill Simpson took the stage on the Daily Show to debut his song “Call To Arms” to a national television audience, the message was clear – “Something new is happening in country music.” In fact, it was clear that something is changing in music altogether.

Simpson is not your average artist, much less your average country artist. From his very first album, Hightop Mountain and especially his second, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Simpson stayed far away from the sanitized hayseed “bro-country” of hardly believable pickup trucks, dirt roads, and fishin’ that Nashville pop country radio has shoved down the throats of listeners for years. Simpson’s album was outlaw country plain and simple – both in the sound and the message.

From the opening song of Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, Simpson decried the pitfalls of religion and the tyranny of the drug war while praising psychedelics at the same time. Along with his cryptic mention of “reptile aliens,” Simpson sings, “Marijuana, LSD, psilocybin, and DMT they all changed the way I see/But love's the only thing that ever saved my life.” Sturgill also points out the insanity of passing laws and throwing supposedly free people in cages for possessing plants and psychedelics. He asks, “Tell me how you make illegal something that we all make in our brain?”

In the song, “Voices” he described the hidden hand behind the direction in which society is heading, one in which humanities’ future may very well be one of conflagration. Simpson sings “Voices behind curtains forked tongues that have no name/They plot their wicked schemes setting fate for all mankind/With evil that can fill God's pretty skies with clouds that burn and blind.”

The Clinton Economy Is The Wal-Mart Economy

If any corporate donation can accurately predict the direction in which a Hillary Clinton presidency would take the American economy, it would be the sizeable donations made by Wal-Mart executives.

As early as 2013, Alice Walton, heiress to the Wal-Mart fortune, donated the maximum allowed amount ($25,000) to the Ready For Hillary PAC. [1]

The Clinton Foundation has also received a sizeable amount of direct donations from Wal-Mart. Indeed, the Wal-Mart Foundation has even donated anywhere from $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation in 2013 alone. The Wal-Mart Foundation has also funded and hosted a number of “energy and climate change” awards for the Clinton Global Initiative. [2]

The assistance and promotion has been reciprocal, of course, with the Clinton Global Initiative posting a rave review of the Wal-Mart corporation, naming it a company that makes great “efforts to empower girls and women.” It was unclear as to whether it was the slave labor wages, the humiliating work environment, or the abusive labor policies of Wal-mart that were the “empowerment of girls and women.” Such questions generally do go unanswered.[3]

The Clinton’s have also assisted Wal-Mart in the past regarding its effort to appear as more environmentally-friendly. For this reason, Bill Clinton met with past Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott in order to help boost the company’s relationship with environmentalists.[4]

Yet the Clinton connection to Wal-Mart goes much further back than 2013. As Kevin Young and Diana C. Sierra Becerra of Solidarity wrote in their article “Something That Might Be Called A Neo-Con: Hillary Clinton And Corporate Feminism,”

White Helmets NGO: A 'Rescue And Assist' Operation Under Guise Of Human Rights

Activist Post
May 10, 2016

With the recent events surrounding hospital bombings (real and imagined) in Aleppo, growing attention is now being paid to the “human rights NGO” known as the White Helmets, a supposed Syrian organization that focuses on rescuing and providing medical care to injured civilians in Syria. According to the Western media, the White Helmets are knights in shining armor, willing to risk life and limb to save innocent people from the fangs of the evil Assad.

A more realistic examination of the White Helmets, however, provides us with a much different view of the organization.

Essentially the White Helmets are nothing more than a terrorist rescue organization funded, directed, and promoted by Western governments, intelligence agencies, and Foundations aimed at assisting Western-backed terrorists in the destruction of secular Syria. The organization serves as a clever and opportunistic tool to be used by Western media for the purposes of sourcing false claims as coming from “impartial” “activist” groups on the ground in Syria and giving the source the credibility of a “human rights” organization.

The White Helmets should be considered nothing more than a branch of the Western destabilization apparatus, a wing of Jobhat al-Nusra, and an entirely discredited organization. Clearly, after examining the nature and reality of the organization, whatever claims made by the White Helmets should be immediately dismissed as yet another false statement in a long string of lies easily traced directly back to the United States and the UK.

The History And Formation Of White Helmets – The Founders And Directors

White Helmets was founded by James Le Mesurier, an admitted former British army officer and mercenary with the Olive Group, a private contracting organization that is now merged with Blackwater-Academi into Constellis Holdings.[1] Although White Helmets half-heartedly attempts to hide its source of funding, the organization is linked to George Soros through a PR firm named Purpose Inc., a pro-war firm that argues for Western intervention against Assad. The co-founder of Purpose is Jeremy Heimans, who also helped found Avaaz, a “pro-democracy” group connected to Soros’ Open Society Foundation, SEIU, and MoveOn.org.

According to a leaked memo obtained by the Guardian in late March, 2016 King Abdullah of Jordan apparently briefed US officials on the fact that Jordanian Special Forces would be deployed to Libya to work alongside the British SAS. In that same briefing, Abdullah also allegedly stated that British SAS had been active in Libya since early 2016.

As Randeep Ramesh wrote for the Guardian at the time,

According to the notes of the meeting in the week of 11 January, seen by the Guardian, King Abdullah confirmed his country’s own special forces “will be imbedded [sic] with British SAS” in Libya. 
According to the memo, the monarch met with US congressional leaders – including John McCain, the chairman of the Senate armed services committee, and Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee. Also present was the House of Representatives speaker, Paul Ryan
King Abdullah said UK special forces needed his soldiers’ assistance when operating on the ground in north Africa, explaining “Jordanian slang is similar to Libyan slang”.

Abdullah also allegedly pointed out that the British had been instrumental in setting up a “mechanized battalion” in Southern Syria made up of “local tribal fighters” (aka terrorists) and lead by a “local commander” for the purposes of fighting against the Syrian government forces.


After Secret Meetings With Saudi Arabia, Israel Publicly Repairs Relationship With Turkey

Shortly after secret meetings between Israeli and Saudi officials were exposed by a small minority of mainstream outlets, the “reparation of relations” between Israel and Turkey began to be reported as well.

The Syrian war has accomplished many things and, apparently, the conflict in Syria has the ability to mend publicly broken relationships between Israel and other nations in a way that no other international incidents have been able to do. Either conflict in the Middle East has magical properties or these new “friends” with Israel have found so much common ground that the two countries can no longer hide their friendship even from the general public and international onlookers at the state level.

In an effort to “mend ties,” the Undersecretary of Turkish Foreign Ministers, Feridun Sinirlioglu held a secret meeting with the Israeli spy chief in Sweden in early April.

As Al Masdar News comments,

The relations between Turkey and Israel have deteriorated after Israeli soldiers raided the Turkish flotilla (Mavi Marmara) while heading to lift Gaza blockade in May 2010. However, both countries began gradually restoring diplomatic and economic ties. In January 2009, Erdogan harshly criticized Israel’s conduct in Gaza at the World Economic Forum conference in Davos. 
Nonetheless, many analysts, including Ashton Meyer, believe the Davos argument was nothing but a farce manipulated by Erdogan to present himself as the new defender of Palestinian cause. “Having failed in dealing issues with Europe, Armenia, Russia, Syria, Iraq and Iran, Erdogan began improving ties with Israel”, Meyer said. Meyer also wrote: “when I compare how the Turkish people welcomed Erdogan after returning from Davos conference in Istanbul airport with the blood-covered faces of Gaza children, I just can’t tell who is the most unfortunate”


Secret Meetings Between Israel, Saudi Officials Reveal Close Relationship, Mutual Interests

After a series of secret meetings between Saudi and Israeli officials were exposed by a select few of mainstream press outlets, both the Saudis and the Israelis are now becoming more open about the relationship between the two governments. Although, for years, GCC countries like Saudi Arabia have held a public position of hostility toward Israel, many researchers and observers have long been aware of secret cooperation between the two and that public statements were largely designed to provide a cover of Arab identity and self-interest for the benefit of public consumption.

After all, the two share common goals when it comes to Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria and all have the common ally of the United States.

As Murtaza Hussain wrote for the Intercept in his article “Israel’s Clandestine Alliance With Gulf Arab States Is Going Public,”

In 2009, a U.S. State Department diplomatic cable gave one of the first glimpses of a burgeoning alliance between Israel and the Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The cable quoted Israeli Foreign Ministry official Yacov Hadas saying, “the Gulf Arabs believe in Israel’s role because of their perception of Israel’s close relationship with the United States,” adding that GCC states “believe Israel can work magic.” 
Israel and the Gulf states also shared an interest in countering what they saw as rising Iranian influence in the Middle East. So while the two sides sparred in public — Israel’s “Cast Lead” military operation had just claimed more than 1,400 lives in the Gaza Strip and was condemned by Saudi Arabia, in a letter to the United Nations, as “fierce aggression” — they enjoyed “good personal relations” behind closed doors, Hadas said, according to one cable. Hadas reportedly added that the Gulf Arabs were still “not ready to do publicly what they say in private.”
