Libya 2.0? US Says 'No-Fly Zone' Over Syria A Possibility

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 28, 2014

In what is more proof that the NATO operation against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is merely Libya 2.0, the Obama administration is now stating that it is open to the possibility of establishing a “no-fly zone” over Syria.

The statements, made by both Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and General Martin E. Dempsey, are supposed to hinge upon an agreement with Turkey, that is itself calling for a “buffer zone,” one of the wishes of NATO since the very beginning of the Syrian crisis.

According to the New York Times, Hagel stated that “We’ve discussed all these possibilities and will continue to talk about what the Turks believe they will require.”

Dempsey added that “a buffer zone might at some point become a possibility” although he also stated that it should not be considered imminent.

A “buffer zone” and/or a “no-fly zone,” of course, is tantamount to war and an open military assault against the sovereign secular government of Syria since the implementation of such a zone would require airstrikes against Assad’s air defense systems.

Turkey is now whining and groaning over an influx of Syrian refugees as a result of a humanitarian crisis that it helped create with its support and facilitation of Islamic fundamentalist death squad forces funded by the West and allowed to travel into Syria through Turkey’s borders. The most recent influx of refugees came from the city of Kobani, where ISIS fighters were herded by American airstrikes for the purposes of reinforcing the fighters already battling Kurdish and Syrian forces there.

Is The US Targeting Oil Refineries To Stop ISIS or Assad?

Only a day after the United States launched airstrikes against alleged ISIS targets in Syria, the real reasons behind these specific targets are gradually becoming clearer. Yet, for anyone who actually thought that the U.S. airstrikes were something other than an attack on Bashar al-Assad’s government forces, the location and targets of the strikes may tell a different story if looked at closely.

For instance, as The Associated Press reported,

U.S.-led airstrikes targeted Syrian oil installations held by the extremist Islamic State group overnight and early Thursday, killing at least 19 people as more families of militants left their key stronghold, fearing further raids, activists said.

The Islamic State group is believed to control 11 oil fields in Iraq and Syria. The new strikes involved six U.S. warplanes and 10 more from the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, mainly hitting small-scale refineries used by the militants in eastern Syria, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said.

RT reports further on the strikes citing Agence France-Press,

According to Agency France-Presse, strikes involved targeting an oil field in Syria administered by the Islamic State, reportedly close to positions held by the group near the towns of Al-Omar and Deir ez-Zor, journalist Zaid Benjamin reported.

The US and its partners used “a mix of fighter and remotely piloted aircraft to conduct 13 of airstrikes against 12 ISIL-controlled modular oil refineries located in remote areas of eastern Syria in the vicinity of Al Mayadin, Al Hasakah, and Abu Kamal and one ISIL vehicle near Dayr az Zawr, also in eastern Syria,” read a statement by CENTCOM.

Report: Iraqi Official Claims U.S. To Station 13,000 Troops In Iraq

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 26, 2014

According to a report by PressTV , an Iraqi official is claiming that the United States will soon station 13,000 troops inside Iraq in the near future.

PressTV refers to the Vice President of Iraq’s Saladin Province as stating that the troops, along with their vehicles, would be stationed at Speicher airfield in Tikrit, a city that is located 87 miles northwest of Baghdad.

PressTV reports that the Vice President made those statements late Thursday evening.

In addition, the Iraqi official also claimed that there are already dozens of U.S. advisers "on the ground."

At this time, there has been no confirmation of those statements from the Iraqi or United States government.

Although the claims made by the Saladin Vice President are questionable, it is by no means outside of the realm of possibility that the United States is considering stationing or has made the decision to station such a large number of troops inside Iraq despite its initial statements to the contrary.

The Real Reasons For U.S. Airstrikes In Syria - Breaking The Assad Regime

Activist Post
September 24, 2014

With the recent and ongoing airstrikes launched against Syria by the United States and its “regional” and NATO allies, a number of questions have arisen from a variety of quarters who remain entirely confused as to the ongoing angles of the players involved in the Syrian crisis. Confusion, of course, is a natural state resulting from the mainstream media’s attempt to conceal the fact that the United States and NATO/GCC are entirely responsible for the Syrian crisis to begin with as well as for the massive seizure of territory across Iraq and Syria by ISIS militants. These same media outlets have also played a major role in the obfuscation of the understanding of the crisis by providing false delineations and name changes bound to confuse an American population already afflicted with a short attention span.

With even the basic facts surrounding the Syrian crisis forced into obscurity by mass ignorance of their existence, the facts surrounding the recent US bombing of Syria have also given way to more questions.

For that reason, a number of points must be made regarding the recent events and those that will unfold in the future inside Syria.
Information Does Not Equal Coordination 

The recent airstrikes by the United States and its allies allegedly against ISIS positions in Syria have been soundly condemned by both Iran and Russia . Both countries have accurately pointed out that the airstrikes were a violation of Syria’s national sovereignty and a violation of international law. Syria, however, has refrained from outrage and has even stated that the United States informed it of the attacks before they took place.

United States Launches Airstrikes in Syria - Real Target Is Assad

Activist Post
September 22, 2014

Late Monday evening, September 22, the United States began the first of its airstrikes inside Syria.

Although details are still murky about where the attacks took place and what targets were actually hit, the Pentagon has acknowledged responsibility for the bombings.

According to USA Today, Rear Admiral John Kirby stated that "I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles. Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time."

USA Today reports that the strikes were carried out both by bomber jets and by ships firing cruise missiles. It is said that the strikes have hit about 20 ISIS targets, including what is being called “headquarters buildings” for “militants who have based their movement in Syria.”

The attacks were not carried out with the coordination and cooperation of the Syrian government. Nor were they carried out with Syrian government permission.

While Syria has already stated that any airstrikes conducted over Syrian airspace would be considered an act of war and that Syria might very well shoot down any American planes conducting those strikes, it is as of yet unclear as to how the Syrian government will respond.

The United States has repeatedly stated that it refuses to coordinate any airstrikes with the Syrian government and responded with an Orwellian statement that it would oust Assad military if he dare defend himself against American attacks.

MI Congressional Candidate: 'Investigate 9/11, Chemtrails'

Rick Strawcutter - third party candidate
September 23, 2014

As the November elections grow closer, a number of candidates have thrown their names into the ring for consideration as the next elected leader or representative of the American people in their respective states, cities, or districts. The November 2014 elections are of course made up by a majority of Democrats and Republicans but a large number of Independent candidates are also taking part in the races all across the country.

Few of these candidates, however, bear a resemblance to Rick Strawcutter, a congressional candidate running on the U.S. Taxpayer Party ticket for the 7th district of the U.S. House of Representatives in Michigan.

Both a pastor and a natural doctor by trade, Strawcutter has pastored the “Church on Bent Oak Hwy” for 38 years and holds a degree in Holistic Nutrition and a doctorate in Naturopathy. He is also the founder of Secrets of Eden, a natural healing products distribution company.

Strawcutter is also one of the few political candidates that has had the courage to call for an investigation of 9/11 and the practice of geo-engineering, also known as “chemtrails.”

In regards to the former issue, Strawcutter’s website states that he will,

Call for a complete investigation of the attack of 9/11. This day of infamy had to be an inside job. The Twin Towers and building 7 were obviously imploded with detonations not jet fuel. One of many extremely credible presentations that debunks the government's official story is found at this youtube link. Additionally, it defies logic to believe that a 757 with a wingspan of 123 feet could enter a 30 foot wide hole in the side of the Pentagon, then disappear with no residual evidence such as engines, tail sections, etc. typical of a crash site.

Wal-Mart Finds A Way To Drain Even More Money From its Employees

walmart low wages low moralsBrandon Turbeville
September 23, 2014

Given the behavior of Wal-Mart in recent years, one would be justified in wondering whether or not the retail giant is actually operating a think-tank tasked with coming up with new ways to make its employees’ lives devoid of any semblance of dignity and reasonable living standards. Indeed, Wal-Mart is doing its part in the global fight against worker’s rights and the living standards of the world’s population as well as attempting to assist in the implementation of scientific feudalism variety as the chosen system of the planet.

Wal-Mart’s latest action is case in point.

As if its absurdly low wages, atrocious labor practices,  and generally dehumanizing policies were not enough, Wal-Mart has now decided to make changes to its “dress code” that will force already financially strapped (to say the least) employees pay for their own work clothes.

While the issue may not sound like such a bad practice, Wal-Mart has been providing work “uniforms” and/or work clothes for its employees in the past. Of course, even after the new changes, Wal-Mart employees will be forced to comply with the Wal-Mart “dress code.” However, this time, they will be forced to pay for the clothes out of their own pocket. For an employee that already makes minimum wage with no benefits and is treated like garbage by Wal-Mart’s labor policies, the extra money it will take to buy new sets (or even just one set) or polo shirts, khakis, and skirts will cut into the worker’s budget significantly.

As one might suspect, those employees who have been attempting to fight for some modicum of worker’s rights and to force Wal-Mart to the bargaining table have once again reacted with anger at Wal-Mart’s decision.

Associated Press Investigates Americans Supporting ISIS - Forgets John McCain

Except John McCain - Anthony Freda Art
Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 22, 2014

In the latest attempt at misdirection by the mainstream media, the Associated Press has attempted to investigate and present a focus on Americans who become jihadist fighters in battlefields across the world such as Syria and Iraq and, eventually, the United States.

In their article, “Tracing Shift From Everyday Americans To Jihadis,” The Associated Press writers present the profile of American jihadists as lonely, unhappy individuals feeling lost and hopeless in the land of the free and endless entertainment. These individuals are simply unable to get on board with Americas war on the Middle East and become radicalized by those preaching jihad in mosques around the world. The sermons simply make sense to these people, the AP writers claim, and a jihadi is soon born.

For instance, they write,

A college dropout from Florida. A nurse's aide from Denver. The owner of a pizza-and-wings joint from upstate New York. 
Except for their embrace of Islam, there's no common profile for the 100-plus Americans who have traveled to Syria to join Islamic fighters or are accused of supporting them from the United States. 
Their reasons for joining an extremist cause a half-world away are as varied as their geography and life stories.

Congress Votes To Fight ISIS By Funding ISIS To Fight Assad

September 19, 2014

On September 17, 2014, the United States House of Representatives voted to approve the White House plan to arm and train the alleged “moderate” Syrian rebels. The vote was 273-156 in favor of the $500 million plan. Of course, the bill in question was actually an amendment that was cynically attached to a billdesigned to continue funding for the federal government in the short-term, ensuring maximum support from members of the House.

Then, on Thursday September 19, the U.S. Senate followed suit by approving the plan as well. The support for the plan in the Senate was, as expected, bipartisan with members such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, John Boehner, and Lindsey Graham voting “Yes” on the bill.

The Obama administration reiterated that it was neither asking for permission nor for a new authorization to use military force. The White House asserts that it has all the authority it needs to achieve its goals under the authorizations to use military force that were approved after the 9/11 attacks and in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Essentially, as Obama stated in his address to the American people on September 10, the consultation of Congress was a mere formality. The plan to aid the “moderate rebels” fighting against Assad and engage in airstrikes against the secular government was going ahead regardless of the decision by Congress.

Much like the decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq as well as passing the PATRIOT ACT, and other Constitution-shredding legislation, Congress was convinced to support the plan both because their handlers directed them to do so or because the risk of revealing themselves as completely irrelevant was too damaging to undertake.

Exclusive: Obama Partnering with the House of Saud is a terrible strategy - Brandon Turbeville Interviewed By Joshua Cook Of BenSwann.com

September 19, 2014

On Sunday, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he was “extremely encouraged” by Saudi Arabia joining the U.S. coalition to fight ISIS. But should Kerry be so enthusiastic? Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, why does the U.S. government still consider Saudi Arabia to be our ally?

According to former Secretary of State and potential U.S. president candidate Hillary Clinton, ISIS has received funding from the Saudis.

Eight years after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Clinton, wrote in a cable leaked by WikiLeaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan) and other terrorist groups.”

Senator Bob Graham, the co-chairman of the official inquiry into 9/11, has said the Washington has turned a blind eye to the Saudis support.

“I believe that the failure to shine a full light on Saudi actions and particularly its involvement in 9/11 has contributed to the Saudi ability to continue to engage in actions that are damaging to the U.S. – and in particular their support for Isis,”he said.

Deputy Tases Handcuffed Man Repeatedly: "You Wanna Do This The Hard Way???"

In yet another example of brazen police brutality, a Richland County Sherriff’s Deputy has been videotaped repeatedly tasing a handcuffed man. The video also shows the deputy verbally rubbing it in to his victim that he was being tased for not obeying the commands that were barked at him.

The scene is disturbing not only because of the fact that the Deputy uses such physical and dangerous force on an unarmed and clearly subdued man but also because of the officer’s crazed demeanor after the tasing took place.

The video, which lasts a little over seven minutes long, shows the entire tasing incident, beginning with the officer, who has not surprisingly remained unidentified, barking orders at Charles James Lang Jr., the victim.

Lang is clearly handcuffed and is leaning against the hood of the Deputy’s car. The Deputy can be seen and heard barking orders for Lang to “put his face on the hood of [the] car.” The Deputy can be heard to say “If you don’t put your face on the hood of my car, you are getting tased. Last warning.”

Lang does not comply with the demands and the Deputy shoots Lang with the taser. Lang immediately falls to the ground.

While Lang is lying face down on the ground, still in handcuffs and visibly stunned from the tasering, the Deputy screams, “Now, You wanna do this the hard way???”

The Deputy then leans down in front of Lang’s face and screams “You can stay right there!!!”

New Emergency Drills Simulate Nuclear Explosion In Nebraska

Considering the large number of times that a false flag attack has occurred at or around the same time as a military drill or a civilian emergency preparation drill in the past, it is understandable that many researchers, activists, and otherwise well-informed observers become concerned whenever such drills are scheduled.

This very reason is perhaps why many are raising their eyebrows at a drill scheduled for tomorrow and Wednesday (September 16-17) in Nebraska which simulates a nuclear explosion near I-80 in the vicinity of Scottsbluff.

As reported by the local ABC News affiliate KOTA News, Regional West Medical Center is scheduled to participate in the drill in the capacity of training to decontaminate victims, ensure accurate reporting, and treating injuries.

The drill is part of a larger exercise involving 21 government agencies.

Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Dave Edwards stated that "Every time we do an exercise, it is to test our plans. Not necessarily how the staff reacts, but are our plans in place correct."

Last year, the same hospital worked with staff to prepare for a live shooter scenario.

While it is important to stress that this writer is not predicting a false flag event during the time of this scheduled exercise, it is also important to stress the prevalence of such drills in false flag operations.

Without a doubt, the mainstream media and U.S. government has been attempting to reinforce the possibility that ISIS or other terrorists may engage in nuclear attacks here in the United States as a type of predictive programming.

Obama: If Assad Defends Against US Attack, US Will Attack

Brandon Turbeville
Anthony Freda Art
September 15, 2014

Only hours after delivering his ridiculous address to the American people regarding his strategy to combat an organization that is entirely the product of the United States and NATO and one that is still under complete control of these powers, Obama conducted a meeting with “foreign policy experts,” former government officials, and journalists.

The meeting, of course, is nothing more than round two in the volley of propaganda coming from the White House in its attempt to drum up more support from the American people for direct military intervention in Syria and an open use of U.S. military forces against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. All of those within an ear’s reach of the reports regarding Obama’s meeting should be firmly aware that it is nothing more than an attempt to milk the original speech for more propaganda against Assad’s Syria and provide a sense of inevitability about the coming conflict there.

With that in mind, Obama stated to those in the “after party” meeting, that if the Syrian government were to shoot down American military planes – American military planes engaging in aggressive air strikes on Syrian soil – then the United States would be forced to “wipe out” Syria’s air defenses. Obama also added that an attack against the Syrian air defenses would be a much easier task than attacking his pet ISIS terrorists and other related groups. Obama pointed out that eliminating Syria’s air defense capabilities would lead to his ouster and the overthrow of the Syrian government.

Essentially, Obama stated that the United States would violate Syrian sovereignty by launching airstrikes inside Syria allegedly for the purpose of bombing the terrorist group that was created, funded, and directed by the United States to overthrow the Syrian government. If Assad dares to defend his country against both an American destabilization of terrorism and aggressive American airstrikes, then the United States would retaliate against Assad’s retaliation.

The Politics Of Division: Islamic Fundamentalism And Christian Jihad

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 14, 2014

Thirteen years after 9/11, Western governments and their media mouthpieces are working in overdrive to create as much religious, ethnic, racial, and gender-based tension and division as possible. From Islamic fundamentalism, media-promoted racial violence, and the culture industry’s carefully crafted separation and division between men and women, the goal is to divide the American people and the people of the rest of the world into as many different sects and divisions as possible so that they project all of the wrongs they have suffered onto the backs of the “other” group they have been trained to see as their enemy.

The strategy is strikingly similar to that of the Brzezinski doctrine of Microstates and Mini-states, where previously united nations are reduced to petty impotent and squabbling pseudo-states incapable of standing up to any major government, corporation, or bank. Likewise, a planet of peoples who are incapable of viewing anything other than the convenient scapegoat given to them by the world oligarchy will be incapable of resisting the power and will of that oligarchy.

Case in point is the recent media reaction to Barack Obama’s tissue of lies also known as his address to the American people on September 10 regarding his strategy against the Islamic Fundamentalist organization ISIS.

During the course of Obama’s ridiculous assertions regarding the nature of ISIS made by virtue of omitting the fact that ISIS was entirely funded, directed, and trained by the United States and NATO, presenting Bashar al-Assad as the enemy of democracy and freedom, and claiming that such a thing as “moderate” Syrian rebels ever actually existed, Obama also made another statement about ISIS that received overwhelming attention from the mainstream media outlets that are tasked with diverting American attention away from any legitimate issues.

In his address, Obama stated that “Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not "Islamic." No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”

Military Source: Troops On The Ground In Syria 'Absolutely Crucial' To Defeat ISIS

As the threat of nuclear war hangs over the world as a result of NATO meddling in Ukraine, Russia has once again warned Washington against military aggression. This time, however, the warning comes in the context of the Syrian crisis where the United States and NATO are considering “targeted airstrikes” against what it claims would be ISIS fighters but what would actually be, almost assuredly, the forces of the secular Syrian government.

While the desire to strike Syria has publicly manifested itself on a number of occasions, Obama stated in his speech on September 10 that he reserves the right to direct airstrikes against Syria if he deems it necessary.

Although Obama also stated that the United States would not be committing ground troops, it should be remembered that Obama made the same claims about his policy in Iraq, a country that has seen  1,200 American troops re-deployed on its soil.

Thus, it comes as no surprise when rumblings of troop deployments to Syria begin to trickle out in the mainstream media, even in the form of comments from anonymous sources in the U.S. military.

For instance, a senior Air Force Commander recently told USA TODAY that U.S. boots will indeed be needed on the ground inside Syria to combat the Western-backed death squads. The commander stated that it is “absolutely crucial that pilots are talking to an American on the ground" who can provide on the ground assistance with identification of the targets.

Declining Family Dinners Pose A Choice: Communitarianism or Make Wall Street Pay

September 12, 2014

In her article “Study Proposes Outrageous Solution In Lieu of Family Dinners,” Heather Callaghan of Activist Post describes, as the title suggests, one of the many ludicrous “solutions” being presented to combat the inability of families to provide for themselves and maintain a normal family life – government-sponsored, communal family dinners.

Callaghan’s article refers to a study, supported by a grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture called the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative and published in Contexts. The study was tasked with exploring the relationship and gap presented in popular culture and the realities that people live with when it comes to feeding their children. Callaghan writes that, “The researchers interviewed 150 females in families with children between the ages of 2 and 8, as well as conducting observations of 12 of these families for a total of 250 hours.”

The results of the findings produced the kind of results that only academics would require money to determine. Dr. Sinnikka Elliott stated that “We found that middle-class, working-class, and poor families faced some similar challenges. For example, mothers from all backgrounds reported difficulty in finding time to prepare meals that everyone in the family would be willing to eat.”

Callaghan summarizes the results of the study by writing,

In addition, middle-class mothers reported being torn between their desire to spend quality time with their children and the expectation that they needed to provide the children with a home-cooked meal. Middle-class mothers were concerned that they weren't able to give their kids the best possible meals because they couldn't afford to buy all organic foods.

Obama's Speech to America: Stop ISIL by Funding ISIL

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 10, 2014

As many had expected as soon as the announcement was made that Barack Obama would make a speech on September 10 regarding his strategy against ISIS, the U.S. President has confirmed that he reserves the right to engage in airstrikes inside Syria.

The President outlined a four-point strategy that would, according to him, "degrade and ultimately destroy" ISIS. Obama stated that, "if left unchecked, ISIS could prove a threat across the middle eastern region" and possibly the American "homeland." Obama warned that ISIS terrorists originating from the United States and Europe could return home and engage in terrorist attacks on both American and European soil.

The President also announced his desire to create a "broad coalition" to "roll back the terrorist threat."

The four-point strategy is allegedly 1) "a systematic campaign of airstrikes" against terrorists in Iraq as well as a plan to work with the Iraqi government and the Iraqi military forces. 2) To increase support to forces fighting ISIL on the ground. This will take the form of 475 additional U.S. service members. Obama claims that these troops will not have a combat mission, but instead an advisory role. Obama also stated his intention to increase assistance to Syrian death squad fighters fighting against Bashar Al Assad. 3) Increase counter-terrorism efforts, cut off funding to terrorist groups and improve intelligence on the ground. Obama stated that he intends to convene a meeting of the UN Security Council in two weeks to discuss these matters. 4) Increase humanitarian assistance to the victims of the crisis in Iraq and Syria.

The Roots of ISIS

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 10, 2014

As the United States and NATO gear up for the second attempt at drumming up popular support for airstrikes against Syria, the narrative of ISIS and justifications for invading the sovereign nation have become so convoluted in the mainstream media that a casual observer can scarcely keep track of the narrative spun by Western governments and their media mouthpieces. Unfortunately, that is part of the plan – to keep the general public so confused as to what is actually occurring overseas that, eventually, with their opinions formed for them on social media, television shows, and interspersed nightly news clips, they rely on the media to do their thinking for them. Their opinions are not their own but those of the world oligarchy.

Real men do not desire war and “average” people have nothing to gain from it.

Still, the general population, with the right amount of propaganda, can be convinced to sacrifice the lives of countless others based on a foolish masculinity contest or the idiocy of humanitarian intervention and the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. The vast majority, of course, will continue to stare off listlessly into their television screens with no opinion formed whatsoever.

Still, on the eve of Obama’s announcement regarding his strategy against ISIS, it is important to remember the true narrative of that fighting group.

There Is No Moderate Opposition

According to the Associated Press, “Obama has told congressional lawmakers that he has the authority to proceed with much of his plan without their formal approval. However, he is seeking authorization from Congress for the train-and-equip operation for Syrian rebels, a request he first made earlier this summer.”

Does Obama Plan To Announce Bombing Of Syria On Eve Of 9/11 Anniversary?

Anthony Freda Art
Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
September 9, 2014

As the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11 draws closer so does the possibility that the United States and NATO will finally be able to realize their dream of direct airstrikes against the secular government of Bashar Al-Assad’s Syria.

After years of propaganda alleging Assad’s “brutality against his own people” and a recent volley of “ISIS is under the bed”-style hype, complete with beheadings, forced starvations, and other savagery, the American people remain utterly befuddled regarding the true nature of events taking place inside Syria, Iraq, and virtually every other country in the world, including their own. As a result, the buildup to a Western bombing campaign against Syria, while rejected by the general public only a year ago, will now likely move full steam ahead with the tacit support of the population.

Thus, as the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, U.S. President Barack Obama is planning to make a dramatic statement regarding his strategy to combat ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.

Although Obama has repeatedly stated that he will not commit U.S. troops to either Iraq or Syria, the possibility of “targeted airstrikes” or aerial bombardment is by no means off the table. Of course, it is also important to point out that Obama has already broken his promise regarding boots on the ground in Iraq with the deployment of at least 1,100 American personnel in the Middle Eastern nation.

Still, as the Detroit Free Press reports, “The plan is expected to involve an expansion of air strikes in Iraq that began in August. Obama is also likely to discuss a coalition of allies that has been assembled in opposition to the Islamic State, and to brace Americans for the possibility that the battle could take years.” In other words, Obama is once again channeling his inner George W. Bush in promoting war with no end against a sovereign state who is the victim of Anglo-American meddling and Western-backed terrorism.

James Hinton: Napa Valley's anti-GMO candidate

Brandon Turbeville
August 28, 2014
Napa Valley Register

After years of leading the charge against genetically modified (GM) food, California now has its own anti-GMO/pro-organic political candidate. James Hinton, an independent running for California’s U.S. House District 5, has come out strong against the proliferation of GM food in the U.S. food supply as well as in the environment. Hinton has also taken a strong stand in favor of GMO labeling.

Hinton has received an impressive amount of support already, despite running against an opponent who is a career politician with a sizable campaign purse. Hinton has amassed endorsements from a variety of organizations from the NRA to the Tax Wall Street Party, but, even more important, he has received the endorsement of California voters.

Hinton has already survived the California primary and received enough votes to be the only candidate facing Democrat Mike Thompson in the general election. There have been anti-GMO candidates in the past — in California and elsewhere — but Hinton’s campaign appears to be the most promising.

While Hinton would prefer to see a world free of GMOs, he is also aware of the practical limitations to that goal in the current political climate. This is why Hinton has stated his full support behind labeling efforts.

Until now, the talk of nuclear warfare between the United States and Russia has been confined to prescient and observant researcherslargely operating within the alternative media. Western media outlets, while attempting to Portray Putin as the new Hitler and Russia as a provocateur, still attempt to paint a picture of a winnable confrontation between the two superpowers. Indeed, Western media outlets along with opportunistic politicians are attempting to nurture anti-Russian sentiment amongst the American people who, unfortunately, have no real sense of the consequences of military action.

Thus, when researchers warn of the dangers of nuclear war, Americans are conditioned to ignore these warnings. Nuclear war would never happen, they think. The powers-that-be would never allow it. Only conspiracy theorists and paranoids would concern themselves with the possibility that major leaders might actually ignite the world in a nuclear holocaust.

Unfortunately, such an outlook on the current state of geopolitics is simply naive.

Following the recent statements from Russian General Yury Yakubov regarding his desire to see Russian military nuclear policy restructured to allow for pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons against the U.S. and NATO, the former President of Poland, Lech Walesa, has also uttered the “N word,” in the mainstream press.

When asked whether or not he thought the European Union should send weapons to Western-backed fascists in Kiev, Walesa wisely stated that such a move was a bad idea. “It could lead to a nuclear war,” he said.

Only hours after Russian President Vladmir Putin managed to secure a fragile ceasefire between the Western-backed fascist regime in Kiev and the Russian-backed separatists in Eastern Ukraine, NATO has rewarded Russia's efforts by shipping NATO soldiers into Western Ukraine, increasing the number of NATO navy vessels in the Black Sea, and leveling new sanctions against Moscow.

According to Reuters, Western Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and one of the main separatist leaders of Eastern Ukraine have agreed to order ceasefires on Friday, pending that an agreement is made on a new peace plan.

Reuters states:

Speaking on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Wales, Poroshenko said the ceasefire would be conditional on a planned meeting going ahead in Minsk on Friday of envoys from UkraineRussia and Europe's OSCE security watchdog.

"At 1400 local time (0700 ET on Friday), provided the (Minsk) meeting takes place, I will call on the General Staff to set up a bilateral ceasefire and we hope that the implementation of the peace plan will begin tomorrow," he told reporters.

Alexander Zakharchenko, head of the main rebel Donetsk People's Republic, said in a statement his men would also order a ceasefire, from one hour later, provided that Kiev's representatives signed up to a peace plan at the Minsk meeting.
Still, the ceasefire is hanging by a thread.

The Hidden Bipartisan Agenda Behind Eliminating the Export-Import Bank

It is increasingly true that whenever one sees Democrats and Republicans joining forces in Congress the end result will inevitably be that the American people are sold down the river. Thus, when we see a formation of both Democrats and Republicans coming together for the purpose of eliminating the Export-Import Bank, red flags should immediately go up in regards to the true motivation and result of their newfound alliance.

For instance, leading the charge against the Export-Import Bank is the Republican Congressman Jeb Hensarling of Texas. Hensarling has repeatedly characterized the Export-Import Bank as corrupt and a risk to American taxpayers. The Congressman has referenced a number of major corporations that the bank has provided assistance to that have proven to be non-productive or even negatively productive to the US economy. Hensarling has also argued, in essence, that the Export-Import Bank violates the concept of the Austrian school of economics.

Others on the Republican side, most notably Koch Industries and groups that Koch backs (Americans for Prosperity, Competitive Enterprise Institute, and Mercatus Center to name a few), have also made common practice of attacking the Ex-Im Bank. For instance, as the Huffington Post writes,

The Kochs have even helped bankroll a superhero satire project called The Kronies, which ran a short cartoon attacking Ex-Im titled, "Laughing All The Way To the Export Import Bank." The flood of institutional effort has made enmity toward Ex-Im a staple of popular conservatism similar to the old hostility directed at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

As the geopolitical tug of war continues to take place over the ravaged country of Ukraine, both sides of the conflict – NATO and Russia – have begun taking steps toward a more solidified structure of alliances that will no doubt have massive reverberations across the world and possibly lead to direct confrontation between nuclear powers.

Indeed, as further evidence that the Western NATO bloc desires an ultimate conflict with Russia and the BRICS powers, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has indicated that Ukraine is firmly on the path to become an eventual member of the NATO alliance.

Simultaneously, West Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniyuk submitted a bill to the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada that would cancel Ukraine’s “non-aligned” status and restart Ukraine’s official attempt to become a member of NATO.

Yatsenyuk also revealed that the ultimate goal of Ukraine is to become a member of the European Union. For that reason, the bill would also ban Ukraine from “joining any political unions which would prevent it from eventually achieving” membership in the EU. The “political unions” which Yatsenyuk and his NATO backers are most concerned with are the Eurasian Economic Community and the Eurasian Customs Union; both political unions created and maintained by Russia which many see as the tentacles of the old Soviet Union.

Yatsenyuk asked Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to classify the bill as urgent and to fast track a vote on the legislation as soon as possible.
