WHITE HELMETS: ‘Humanitarians’ and the ‘Moderate’ Bomb Factory in Saqba, Eastern Ghouta

bomb factoryThe White Helmets do not call for Peace, they effectively lobby for war.

The White Helmets are not a “Humanitarian” organisation according to the many civilian testimonies I recorded in Eastern Ghouta and East Aleppo, the two areas where the greatest concentration of this organisation could be found prior to liberation by the SAA and allies. Even refugees from Idlib, almost the last terrorist/White Helmet stronghold in Syria, have told me the same thing. I met one SARC (Syrian Arab Red Crescent) volunteer in Hama. She had been working in Idlib before it became too dangerous and she told me:

“White Helmets are terrorists. They are specialists in acting and drama, not humanitarian work. The White Helmets abuse the “humanitarian” title to gain trust and to brainwash people in Syria and outside. They are a big lie. There are many foreigners working in the White Helmets” More…

Anyone who even slightly suspects that the “White Helmets” narrative is corporate main steam media produced propaganda should read this author and others mentioned in this article.

The U.S. and Canada Are Preparing for a New Standing Rock Over the Trans Mountain Tar Sands Pipeline

The U.S. and Canada Are Preparing for a New Standing Rock Over the Trans Mountain Tar Sands Pipeline
by Alleen Brown and Will Parrish

fighting tar sands pipelineResistance to the pipeline is already escalating: On July 3, seven pipeline opponents rappelled from Vancouver’s Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in a daylong blockade of tanker traffic associated with the existing Trans Mountain line. Last week, the Tiny House Warriors wheeled the homes into a provincial park that sits on the site of a historic village near Clearwater, British Columbia, in an assertion of their title to the land.

Calling themselves the Tiny House Warriors, a group of Indigenous Secwepemc people from Canada are building tiny houses in the path of the massive Kinder Morgan tar sands oil pipeline’s planned route through their territory. The house is a symbol of the home they are fighting to protect, creating hope and community in the face of destruction.

That’s exactly what law enforcement agencies on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border fear. For more than a year, U.S. and Canadian authorities have been girding for a mobilization comparable to the 2016 resistance in North Dakota, according to law enforcement communications and government reports obtained by The Intercept. In Canada, Trudeau received a Cabinet memo discussing the implications of Standing Rock for Trans Mountain one week after his administration approved the pipeline expansion. More…

Monstrous AT&T/Time Warner Merger

Monstrous AT&T/Time Warner Merger
By Stephen Lendman

Judge Rchard  Leon approved ATT-Time Warner mergerUnless overturned by Supreme Court rulings, ending Net Neutrality and the AT&T/Time Warner merger could kill digital democracy in America – the last frontier of press freedom.

America is run by men and to a much lesser degree by ideologically likeminded women – not laws or high moral standards. Executive, congressional, and judicial officials systematically lie, connive, and pretty much do what they please for their own self-interest. Democracy is pure fantasy. Most High Court and other federal judges are as unprincipled and deferential to powerful interests exclusively as political officials in Washington, states and local governments.

On Tuesday, US District Court Judge Richard Leon approved the monstrous At&T/Time Warner merger without imposing conditions. More…

Twelve Tips For Making Sense Of The World

Twelve Tips For Making Sense Of The World
by Caitlin Johnstone
Posted July 25, 2018

making sense of the worldIn an environment that is saturated with mass media propaganda, it can be hard to figure out which way’s up, let alone get an accurate read on what’s going on in the world. Here are a few tips I’ve learned which have given me a lot of clarity in seeing through the haze of spin and confusion. Taken separately they don’t tell you a lot, but taken together they paint a very useful picture of the world and why it is the way it is.

A 2014 Princeton study showed that ordinary Americans have essentially zero influence over their nation’s policy and behavior regardless of how they vote, while wealthy Americans have a great deal of influence. This is because the ability to use corporate lobbying and campaign donations effectively amounts to the legalized bribery of elected officials, which means that money translates directly into political power. This creates a ruling class which is naturally incentivized to use their influence to increase their own wealth while decreasing everyone else’s, because since power is relative, the less money everyone else has the more power the ruling class has.

With “Mountainous” Evidence On Plaintiffs’ Side, Hundreds Of Cancer Cases Against Monsanto Get Green Light

With “Mountainous” Evidence On Plaintiffs’ Side, Hundreds Of Cancer Cases Against Monsanto Get Green Light
By Jessica Corbett
Posted July 24, 2018

Monsanto/Bayer may finally face justice“We’re going to see for the first time evidence that nobody has seen before, evidence that has been in Monsanto’s files that we’ve obtained from lawyers and the people in Monsanto.”

After opening arguments kicked off in California state court on Monday for a Bay Area man’s landmark lawsuit alleging that Monsanto’s popular weedkiller Roundup caused him to develop cancer, a federal judge on Tuesday ruled that hundreds of unrelated but similar cases against the agrochemical company can also proceed to trial.

The attorney argued that Monsanto—which recently merged with German pharmaceutical giant Bayer—“has specifically gone out of its way to bully…and to fight independent researchers.” Wisner, the newspaper noted, “presented internal Monsanto emails that he said showed how the agrochemical company rejected critical research and expert warnings over the years while pursuing and helping to write favorable analyses of their products.” More…

Why We Should Be Alarmed That Israeli Forces And U.S. Police Are Training Together

Why We Should Be Alarmed That Israeli Forces And U.S. Police Are Training Together
by Domenica Ghanem
Posted July 24, 2018

who is the enemy?The Israeli forces mowing down unarmed Palestinian protesters also train U.S. police forces that brutalize communities of color. U.S. police departments are sent to Israel, or sometimes Israeli forces come to the United States, under the pretense of counter-terrorism training.

Apparently that training includes learning the benefits of “skunk water”—a liquid developed by Israel that’s used to break up anti-occupation protests like the ones occurring right now. After protests in Ferguson, the St. Louis department started stockpiling the stuff.

And that now infamous NYPD Muslim surveillance program? The NYPD Intelligence Division Chief responsible for that one got the idea from a similar program used to spy on Palestinians.

It begs the question of whom the U.S. police consider terrorists. More…

David Hogg Just Got “SWATTED”. Here’s Why That’s So Messed Up.
By Joe Jarvis
Posted July 23, 2018

most SWAT raids are for minor offensesThe number of raids conducted by SWAT-like police units has grown accordingly. In the 1970s, there were just a few hundred a year; by the early 1980s, there were some 3,000 a year. In 2005 (the last year for which Dr. Kraska collected data), there were approximately 50,000 raids.

Now 80% of no-knock SWAT raids are used to execute minor search warrants. Only 7% are used for the original purpose: hostage and barricade situations.

No-knock raids–when the police do not announce themselves, and instead break into a home with battering rams–routinely get both officers and civilians killed. More…
