Ottawa under attack: 'ISIS' assault on Canadian capital another false-flag terror event

In Ottawa today, in an event "unprecedented in Canada's history", someone shot dead - at point blank range - one of the two soldiers who stand guard at Canada's National War Memorial. From there the suspect(s) hijacked car(s) and made their way to Parliament Buildings, where they opened fire in close proximity to Canadian government ministers and legislators. Canada's capital city is currently on lockdown as thousands of personnel from multiple security forces patrol the area and set up checkpoints to monitor vehicles going in and out of the city.

One of the shooters has been killed, allegedly by a security guard inside the Parliament. At least two patients have turned up with gunshot wounds at a local hospital. Eyewitnesses told local news outlet CTV that "a man with long hair carrying a rifle" fired four shots at a soldier next to Canada's 'Tomb of the Unknown Soldier'. That soldier has since died.
Eyewitness: 'It sounded like a shotgun'

One man watched the scene unfold from a third-floor office that faces the war memorial. "It was unreal," said the witness, who asked not to be identified. "I heard the shot and looked out the window. . . The shooter came from the west side and aimed right at the young guy that was standing guard and shot him twice. I think he missed with the first shot; it sounded like a shotgun."

Loaded symbolism: An unnamed Canadian soldier was shot dead at the country's 'Tomb of the Unknown Soldier'
Canada's military has been put on high alert, with all its bases on lockdown. Canada had incidentally raised its national terrorism alert level earlier today, following a separate attack on Monday, in which two Canadian soldiers were run over in a hit-and-run by a "homegrown radicalized jihadist", Quebecois Martin Couture-Rouleau, aka 'Ahmad the Converted'. One of the soldiers died. The suspect was summarily executed following a manhunt by militarized police.

CIA pressure in Brazilian elections

Over two thousand Brazilian political activists, intellectuals, people of art and culture signed a manifest on October 26 highlighting the hostile actions of Washington aimed at prevention of Dilma Rousseff election victory. The document is posted to social nets. It says the coming to power of Aécio Neves of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party (Partido da Social Democracia Brasileira - PSDB), who serves the interests of tycoons, will inflict irreparable damage to the country and take away all the snags on the way of US direct interference into the Brazilian internal affairs. Neves is to play the role of obedient tool in the hands of US administration. Washington goes to any length to achieve its goal and bring the desired candidate to power - some things are done covertly, some tricks are resorted to in a clandestine way.

All CIA information and propaganda resources are used to support Neves. Around 80 million Brazilians have access to Internet, 150 million are cell phone users. The US special services have perfect command of destabilization techniques. The recent protests and social unrest in Brazil threatened the World Cup proving that the forces are ready to react as the «color revolution» scenario to be implemented at any time.

The activities of non-government organizations are not restricted in any way; their members have close ties with US embassy and consulate staff, as well as ISAID workers. The human intelligence is used to discredit the policy of the Dilma Rousseff government. The lies about its ineffectiveness are spread around by all available means. «Experts» forecast collapse in case the President wins another term. They disseminate dubious results of «rating polls» that complicate the vision of reality.

Whitewash: Obama chief of staff handling redactions for Senate's CIA torture report

Chief of Staff Denis McDonough
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough is deeply involved in negotiating how much to redact from a classified US Senate probe into the CIA's post-9/11 detention and interrogation program, according to a new report

McDonough is playing a top role in hashing out what will be available to the public upon release of an abbreviated executive summary for the 6,000-page report, Huffington Post reported citing sources close to the negotiations.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's $40 million investigation into the Central Intelligence Agency's Rendition, Detention, and Interrogation Program - which was active from September 11, 2001 to 2006 - has found that the spy agency purposely deceived the US Justice Department to attain legal justification for the use of torture techniques, among other findings that resulted in the report, completed from March 2009 to December 2012. Of that investigative report, the public will only see a 500-page, partially-redacted executive summary that is in the process of declassification.

McDonough's involvement may indicate how monumental the tug-of-war between the Senate committee and the CIA has become during the investigation. The committee has alleged that the CIA has spied on its staff, while the intelligence agency has accused the committee of leaking classified information amid its "inquisition" of the CIA, as one intelligence source described the probe.

The White House did confirm that McDonough was involved in the negotiations, but questions over the nature of his participation were left unanswered.

"We're not going to get into the details of our discussions, but White House officials, including Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, are in regular touch with [Intelligence Committee] leadership on a variety of matters, including to discuss the committee's review of the Bush Administration's rendition, detention and interrogation program, in an effort to help ensure the executive summary is completed and declassified consistent with national security interests," Bernadette Meehan, spokeswoman for the National Security Council, told Huffington Post.

Turmoil in Hong Kong, terrorism in Xinjiang: America's covert war on China

China is facing increasing pressure along two fronts. In its western province of Xinjiang, terrorists have been stepping up destabilization and separatist activities.

In China's southeast Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, protests have disrupted normality in the dense urban streets, with protest leaders seeking to directly confront Beijing while dividing and destabilizing both Hong Kong society and attempting to "infect" the mainland.

What is more troubling is the greater geopolitical agenda driving both of these seemingly "internal" conflicts - and that they both lead back to a single source beyond China's borders. With the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS) now implicated in receiving, training, and employing terrorists from China's Xinjiang province, and considering the fact that ISIS is the result of an intentional, engineered proxy war the US and its allies are waging in the Middle East, along with the fact that the unrest in Hong Kong is also traced back to Washington and London, presents a narrative of an ongoing confrontation between East and West being fought on the battlefield of fourth generation warfare.

Comment: China, and Russia, pose a serious threat to American hegemony. As such, they must be neutralized, whatever the means. Paul Craig Roberts offers some additional insight into the strategy against China, and what kind of power China really has, in his article Will Russia and China hold their fire until War is the only alternative?:
... China could deal a more lethal blow. Choosing a time of heightened concern or disruptions in US financial markets, China could dump its trillion dollar plus holdings of US treasuries, or indeed all its holdings of US financial instruments, on the market. The Federal Reserve and the US Treasury could try to stabilize the prices of US financial instruments by creating money with which to purchase the bonds and other instruments. This money creation would increase concern about the dollar's value, and at that point China could dump the trillion dollars plus it receives from its bond sales on the exchange market. The Federal Reserve cannot print foreign currencies with which to buy up the dollars. The dollar's exchange value would collapse and with it the dollar's use as world reserve currency. The US would become just another broke country unable to pay for its imports. [...]

Both Russia and China have Muslim populations among whom the CIA operates encouraging disassociation, rebellion, and violence. Washington intends to break up the Russian Federation into smaller, weaker countries that could not stand in the way of Washington's hegemony.


Soldier and one gunman shot and killed near Ottawa parliament as 3 separate shooting incidents occur

A Royal Canadian Mounted Police intervention team responds to a reported shooting at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada Oct. 22, 2014
Heavily-armed police cleared Canada's Parliament building today and are searching for three suspects after a trio of shooting incidents near the Parliament left a soldier wounded. Gunfire was heard inside Parliament.

One of the three suspects was "dealt with," according to a spokesman for the Ottawa Police.

The gunfire prompted security force to hustle Prime Minister Stephen Harper to a "safe" place not at Parliament Hill, his spokesperson said. Harper's usual office is in a building near the shooting site.

"The prime minister is safe and not on Parliament Hill and being briefed by security officials," his spokesman Jason MacDonald said.

Ottawa Police said via Twitter the initial shooting took place at 9:52 a.m. at the National War Memorial of Canada, but that was just the beginning of the violent episode, which has now stretched into investigations in two other locations: Parliament Hill and the nearby Rideau Centre, a large shopping mall that was subsequently evacuated.

Ottawa Police Constable Marc Soucy told Canada's CTV police were searching for more than one suspect and no one has been arrested.

Civic Hospital in Ottawa, the country's capital, has received three patients, two of whom are in stable condition.

Earlier today witnesses told CTV they saw a man with long hair carrying a rifle and heard four shots fired at the soldier, who was guarding Canada's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Comment: For those of you who pay attention to these kinds of false-flag shootings, take note of the fact they're currently reporting THREE shooters.


Will US led military and economic fiasco in Ukraine lead EU into financial collapse?


What do I care if Ukraine never pays us back? The German taxpayer is my ATM.
As the military situation in Ukraine grinds to a stalemate, the still more desperate economic plight comes to the fore, laying bare the culpable folly of European diplomacy.

In an earlier posting we had suggested that the unification of Germany could serve as a benchmark for the potential cost of any attempt to keep the implicit promise to Ukraine of EU accession, tossing out a guesstimate of one-half trillion Euros - an obviously impossible sum in the context of a European continent sliding into renewed recession.

In a recent paper, Carnegie's always incisive Dmitri Trenin has suggested that the actual cost of the reunification of Germany was closer to E1.5 trillion, albeit over a period of 23 years. While this latter number is almost certainly closer to the mark, given the realities it is no more than a substantial rounding error; Mr Poroshenko's trip to Washington - from which he returned with a generous $52 million - suggests that the likelihood of Ukraine receiving anything like either number is identical - precisely nil.

President Israel: Our country is suffering from an epidemic of violence that must be treated

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin: “It is time to honestly admit that Israeli society is sick – and it is our duty to treat this disease”.
Israel is suffering from an epidemic of violence that must be treated, the country's President Reuven Rivlin said. After the latest bloody conflict in Gaza, Jews and Arabs seem to have lost the capacity for dialogue, as relations have reached a new low.

"It is time to honestly admit that Israeli society is sick - and it is our duty to treat this disease," Rivlin told the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities at a xenophobia conference on Sunday in Jerusalem.

"The tension between Jews and Arabs within the State of Israel has risen to record heights, and the relationship between all parties has reached a new low," he said, as cited by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

"We have all witnessed the shocking sequence of incidents and violence taking place by both sides. The epidemic of violence is not limited to one sector or another, it permeates every area and doesn't skip any arena. There is violence in soccer stadiums as well as in academia. There is violence in social media and in everyday discourse, in hospitals and in schools."

He added that he personally endured verbal abuse, including on his Facebook page.

Israeli society has taken a right-wing swing amid the latest escalation in Gaza this summer. The violence erupted after the kidnapping and subsequent murder of three Jewish teenagers, which triggered a major crackdown by the Israeli security forces in Gaza strip.

Comment: Violence taking place by both sides? Not quite.
The Israelis work hard to dehumanize the Palestinians, and so rehumanizing them is an important defense. Israel's position in regards to the Palestinians is very tenuous because Israel is so strong and Palestine so weak that their propaganda campaign has to pour significant effort into maintaining the illusion of a militant and dangerous Palestinian population. The numbers simply don't match up. The Palestinian dead versus Israeli dead is usually 1,000 to 1 or more.

In ancient Rome, and many other countries where slaves were kept, the common punishment for a slave killing a master was to kill the slave and everyone immediately around him. Up to 200 slaves or more were killed. This method is being used on the Palestinians. If one Palestinian commits a crime, such as shooting a rocket into Israel, regardless of whether or not it kills an Israeli, then Israel invariably responds by killing hundreds or thousands of Palestinians in "retribution." This has led to a situation where Palestinians are damned to helplessness.

This is compounded by the fact that the majority of people committing such crimes are usually emotionally unstable and manipulated teenagers. The source of the manipulation is debatable because we know that Israeli security services exert a certain amount of influence on Hamas and other terrorist organizations, but we don't know precisely to what extent they encourage the practice of firing rockets into Israel to furnish the Israeli Political Establishment and Hasbara fodder for more propaganda. Then again, as Joe Quinn pointed out, chances are, agents of the state of Israel are the most likely culprits behind the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens that was used to justify the massacre of 2000 Palestinians.
Genocide in Gaza: Viable Palestinian strategic options in the face of Israeli tactics

Comment: We would like to remind Mr. Rivlin of the following: "Ignota nulla curatio morbid', do not attempt to cure what you do not understand.
(Israeli) society is thoroughly ponerised, including academia:

Ominous developments in Donbass: Is a Ukrainian attack imminent?

This short post is just to inform you of the latest developments in the war in the Ukraine.

Ukie forces

Following the use of a tactical ballistic missile against Donetsk by the Ukies, Zakharchenko has declared that the ceasefire was basically over.

Strelkov has made an official appeal warning that according to this information the Ukies were massing troops in preparation for an attack. According to Strelkov, the Ukie plan is for a very short and very rapid "push" towards Donestk and the Russian border to make any Novorussian state non-viable and thus to negotiate from a position of force. True, Strelkov does have a record of exaggerating threats in order to minimize them, but this time there are some strong signs that his analysis is shared by the Russian military, and these signs are the most ominous signs of all.

Russian sources - including the excellent Colonel Cassad blog - report that the voentorg aid-spigot has been fully re-opened including for some major deliveries. While, of course, I am very happy that the Novorussian resistance is getting much needed equipment (and specialists), this kind of full reopening of the voentorg also indicates to me that the Russian intelligence services have concluded that an attack is very likely, possibly very soon.

Top Saudi cleric slams Twitter as 'Source of all evil'

In the latest attack against Twitter in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf state's leading cleric criticized Twitter as "the source of all evil and devastation," triggering a social media firestorm.

Saudi Arabia finds itself in a rather complicated relationship with Twitter, the popular social media platform. With the highest percentage of active Twitter users in the world among internet subscribers, Saudi Arabia, with its ultraconservative, authoritarian Islamic regime, also ranks as one of its most ardent critics.

"If it were used correctly, it could be of real benefit, but unfortunately it's exploited for trivial matters," Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh remarked on his Fatwa television program on Monday, as quoted by AFP.

Comment: People networking together will always be a 'threat' to psychopaths and the elites' agendas.


Miss him yet? Republicans promise to bring back the 'W' days

President George W. Bush speaks to Fox News
The Republican National Committee is still hawking "I miss W" t-shirts, but now they have a new message.

In a fundraising email sent out Tuesday, RNC chief operating officer Sara Armstrong promised Republicans would bring the leadership qualities of President George W. Bush to the Senate if they prevailed in the upcoming Nov. 4 midterm elections.

"President George W. Bush once said, 'I will live and lead by these principles: to advance my convictions with civility, to pursue the public interest with courage, to speak for greater justice and compassion, to call for responsibility and try to live it as well,'" the email starts.

"That's what America needs right now: a big dose of leadership. The kind of principled conservative leadership President Bush provided our great nation. And the kind of leadership Republicans will deliver when we win a Senate majority."

Republicans need to gain six seats to win back the Senate, and recent polling suggests control of the upper body of Congress is within their grasp.

Comment: This is the surreal reality that authoritarian followers and psychopaths live in despite polls showing Bush as being the worst president since WWII.
