The Dutch agency heading the international probe into Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine has contacted RT over the footage used in our recent documentary on the tragedy. RT's documentary discovered fragments of the plane still in Donetsk.

The RT Documentary film, titled MH17: A year without truth, showed fragments of the crashed Boeing and pieces of luggage still scattered in the area at the time of filming. The RTD crew collected the parts of the plane's exterior they spotted, bringing them to the administration of the nearby town of Petropavlovsk.

"With great interest we watched your documentary, 'MH17: A year without truth,'" Dutch Safety Board spokesperson Sara Vernooij wrote to RT. "In this film, RT shows parts of the cockpit roof which were found near Petropavlivka. We would like to gather those pieces and bring them over to the Netherlands so the Dutch Safety Board can use them for the investigation and the reconstruction."

In the documentary, the RTD crew talked to witnesses, experts and family members of flight MH17 passengers in a bid to understand whether the truth of what caused the tragedy will ever be established.

The documentary also features relatives of those who perished in the MH17 crash who say they have no possibility to get information about the course of the investigation, and believe it is not objective.


We're navigating a world of dangers

Ah, another piece in place...only a few more until "Tyranny" is fait accompli!
There is no shortage of dangers in the world today. It seems every day something else appears from out of the blue and adds to the pile of potential problems we have to deal with. Some of these problems are covered over or ignored all together. They are hidden in the shadows to prevent people from protecting themselves from the dangers.

The whole premise of hiding these dangers is that when someone loses in the future, someone else will profit from it. In our case, when many people lose, a few will profit massively. That is how the system has been set up. The people have been set up and the time is near when the plug will be pulled and chaos will be the order of the day. When that day comes many of the seemingly unconnected problems we face will coalesce into a massive problem few will understand or be equipped to deal with, and that is the hope of some. Here are some of the problems that will come together in the future and spell disaster for many:

Comment: There are many articles warning citizens of the upcoming culmination of the PTB plans to hold the USA hostage within its own borders. It cannot be emphasized enough that Americans are in jeopardy and need to be reminded on a daily basis how precarious is the balance and how fragile the illusion that all is still well in the great and mighty USA. As the PTB's cloaking device becomes more and more transparent, hopefully enough savvy citizens will come to their senses. This article is only a partial collection of the serious and heinous operations underfoot. Think about what else you know and multiply it by 1,000.

MH17: A year without truth (RT documentary)

A year ago, Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was brought down over the territory of conflict-torn Ukraine. This tragedy shocked the world and affected families in many countries. Today, debris can still be found in the area around the crash and the investigation, shrouded in secrecy, still hasn't reached a definitive conclusion. RTD talks to witnesses, experts and family members of MH17 passengers in a bid to understand whether the truth of what caused the tragedy will ever be established.

Comment: After this documentary was aired, the Dutch Safety Board investigating the crash wrote to RT:
"With great interest we watched your documentary, 'MH17: A year without truth. In this film, RT shows parts of the cockpit roof which were found near Petropavlivka. We would like to gather those pieces and bring them over to the Netherlands so the Dutch Safety Board can use them for the investigation and the reconstruction."
How's that for total incompetence? You'd think the DSB would've made a thorough effort to retrieve all the evidence a year ago. But there's really no need, when you're not really investigating in the first place...


Climate Fascism: Obama's emission reduction plan will decimate the coal industry and cost countless jobs

Is Barack Obama trying to kill the economy on purpose? On Sunday, we learned that Obama is imposing a nationwide 32 percent carbon dioxide emission reduction from 2005 levels by the year 2030. When it was first proposed last year, Obama's plan called for a 30 percent reduction, but the final version is even more dramatic. The Obama administration admits that this is going to cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars a year and that electricity rates for many Americans are going to rise substantially. And what Obama is not telling us is that this plan is going to kill what is left of our coal industry and will destroy countless numbers of American jobs. The Republicans in Congress hate this plan, state governments across the country hate this plan, and thousands of business owners hate this plan. But since Barack Obama has decided that this is a good idea, he is imposing it on all of us anyway.

So how can Obama get away with doing this without congressional approval?

Well, he is using the "regulatory power" of the Environmental Protection Agency. Congress is increasingly becoming irrelevant as federal agencies issue thousands of new rules and regulations each and every year. The IRS, for example, issues countless numbers of new rules and regulations each year without every consulting Congress. Government bureaucracy has spun wildly out of control, and most Americans don't even realize what is happening.

Guns and oil: Britain's secret ties to governments and firms behind ISIS oil sales

In the scramble to access Kurdistan's oil and gas wealth, the US and UK are turning a blind eye to complicity in 'Islamic State' oil smuggling.

Key allies in the US and UK led war on Islamic State (ISIS) are covertly financing the terrorist movement according to senior political sources in the region. US and British oil companies are heavily invested in the murky geopolitical triangle sustaining ISIS' black market oil sales.

The Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq and Turkish military intelligence have both supported secret ISIS oil smuggling operations and even supplied arms to the terror group, according to Kurdish, Iraqi and Turkish officials.

One British oil company in particular, Genel Energy, is contracted by the KRG to supply oil for a major Kurdish firm accused of facilitating ISIS oil sales to Turkey. The Kurdish firm has close ties to the Iraqi Kurdish government.

Representatives of the German Journalists' Association told Sputnik News that the treason charges facing journalists from the blog Netzpolitik represent a 'serious attack on press freedom.'

The German Journalists' Association declared that the charge of treason leveled against bloggers Markus Beckedahl and Andre Meister represents a "serious attack on the freedom of the press," in an interview with Sputnik News' German language radio station.

"This is not treason in any way. It was not the intention of the journalists to harm the Federal Republic of Germany or its foreign policy interests," said Hendrik Zoerner, spokesman for the German Journalists' Association [DJV].

Crushing circumstances: Greek government is facing down a Grexit, a recession, and the Troika at the same time

As stock markets crash and Greece plunges deeper into recession, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is left with an even bigger fight on his hands - to revive Greek growth and avoid a Grexit.

The chaos in the Greek stock exchange is clear with the Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX) falling by 22.87 percent. Greece's four big banks saw the biggest fall; Piraeus Bank, National Bank, Alpha Bank and Eurobank were all down by 30 percent.

But the other numbers causing concern for the Greek PM are that 25 percent of the Greek population who are unemployed as manufacturing activity also dropped to its lowest level on record last month. Markit's Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for manufacturing fell to 30.2 points. Fifty points indicate growth for a country.

Chinese investment in Ecuador: Is it global ambitions, with loans and strings attached?

© Ivan Kashinsky/ The New York Times
Water pipes set aside near where Ecuador wants a Chinese oil company to build a giant refinery, outside the port of Manta. China has invested heavily in overseas oil projects.
The country has invested billions in Ecuador and elsewhere, using its economic clout to win diplomatic allies and secure natural resources around the world.

Where the Andean foothills dip into the Amazon jungle, nearly 1,000 Chinese engineers and workers have been pouring concrete for a dam and a 15-mile underground tunnel. The $2.2 billion project will feed river water to eight giant Chinese turbines designed to produce enough electricity to light more than a third of Ecuador.

Near the port of Manta on the Pacific Ocean, Chinese banks are in talks to lend $7 billion for the construction of an oil refinery, which could make Ecuador a global player in gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products.

Across the country in villages and towns, Chinese money is going to build roads, highways, bridges, hospitals, even a network of surveillance cameras stretching to the Galápagos Islands. State-owned Chinese banks have already put nearly $11 billion into the country, and the Ecuadorean government is asking for more.

Ecuador, with just 16 million people, has little presence on the global stage. But China's rapidly expanding footprint here speaks volumes about the changing world order, as Beijing surges forward and Washington gradually loses ground.

Comment: China needs natural resources and it is using huge financial reserves for investing in other risky economies with high interest rates to fuel its industrialization machine. In short, China is doing "business as usual" instead of Western practices of shock doctrine, austerity and regime change.


Turkey supports ISIS, declares war on them, bombs Kurds instead

Anti-ISIS Kurdish fighters.
NATO member Turkey has been busted supporting ISIS.

The Guardian reported this week:
US special forces raided the compound of an Islamic State leader in eastern Syria in May, they made sure not to tell the neighbours.

The target of that raid, the first of its kind since US jets returned to the skies over Iraq last August, was an Isis official responsible for oil smuggling, named Abu Sayyaf. He was almost unheard of outside the upper echelons of the terror group, but he was well known to Turkey. From mid-2013, the Tunisian fighter had been responsible for smuggling oil from Syria's eastern fields, which the group had by then commandeered. Black market oil quickly became the main driver of Isis revenues - and Turkish buyers were its main clients.

As a result, the oil trade between the jihadis and the Turks was held up as evidence of an alliance between the two.

Comment: Perhaps part of the reason for exposing Turkey's links with ISIS has something to do with the fact that Israel has been a supporter of Kurdish separatists in Iraq, which naturally has an effect on Turkey.

State secrecy? Govt media adviser denies D-notices suppressed child abuse claims

© Matt Dunham / Reuters
The chairman of a committee that oversees Britain's media blackout system has denied claims that state orders were given to withhold child abuse allegations against the late MP Cyril Smith MP.

In his first interview as Chairman of the Defense and Security Media Advisory Committee, Air Vice-Marshal Andrew Vallance said police may have handed fake gagging orders, known as D-notices, to a number of news outlets.

The government D-notices are issued to news editors, demanding they withhold information from the public on national security grounds.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today program, Valance said "not a shred of evidence" exists that authorized D-notices were issued.

Don Hale, former editor of the Bury Messenger, claims he obtained a cache of files in the early 1980s regarding a group of elite political figures who seemed sympathetic to notorious pro-pedophile group The Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE).

Among these high-profile figures was the late Liberal MP Cyril Smith.
