Top secret files on VIP child sex ring could shed new light on horror at Kincora Boys' Home in Belfast


Sir Leon Brittan was named in files

Key Westminster figures - including former Home Secretary Sir Leon Brittan - have been named in top secret files about a VIP paedophile ring.


And the series of documents are expected to shed new light on horrific abuse of children at Kincora Boys' Home in east Belfast.

Sky News reported that after months of requests, the Government had finally revealed that papers exist naming senior figures in the 1970s and 1980s.

They include Margaret Thatcher's former parliamentary secretary the late Sir Peter Morrison, former diplomat the late Sir Peter Hayman, former minister the late Sir William van Straubenzee and Brittan.

One of the files relating to Hayman was held by the Cabinet Office but "overlooked" during a previous trawl for information.

In January the Government was forced to release details about a file prepared for Mrs Thatcher's office on the "unnatural" sexual behaviour of Sir Peter, named in the Commons as a paedophile by Geoffrey Dickens MP in 1981.

The latest documents reveal there was further official discussion about the senior MI6 operative.

Comment: Even the Royal household will not be exempt from scrutiny over pedophile allegations and may be asked to provide evidence to the newly launched child sex abuse inquiry led by Justice Lowell Goddard. Although it is stated that "authorities will investigate every level of British society including local authorities, the police, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the NHS, the media and armed forces", there seems to be a deliberate attempt at excluding investigations at the notorious Kincora Boys' Home in Belfast.

Could it be because of the alleged link of atrocities committed there and a connection with MI5? Recent documents revealed that a letter written by the head of MI5 in 1986 stated, "the risk of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger".

Patrick Corrigan, Amnesty's Northern Ireland Program Director told RT:
The allegations could scarcely be more serious - that MI5 used a pedophile ring at the boys' home for its own intelligence-gathering purposes and then blocked police investigations which could have ended the abuse years before it was finally stopped.

If true, that means that the UK security services used vulnerable boys as nothing more than sexual bait in a blackmail trap. Some people talk about a 'dirty war' in Northern Ireland - but these allegations are stomach-churning and must be fully investigated with an inquiry with the full-powers to do so.

Indian PM Modi endorses opposition lawmaker's call for British reparations

Shashi Tharoor, a member of the Congress Party, argues Britain owes India an economic and moral debt.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks to the media on the opening day of the monsoon session of the Indian parliament in New Delhi, India, July 21, 2015.
It has almost been seven decades since Britain withdrew from India following the disintegration of the British Empire. They have never paid reparations.

Indian parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor, who recently spoke at an Oxford Union Society debate on whether Britain owes reparations to her former colonies, has not forgotten.

"India's share of the world economy when the UK arrived on its shores was 23 percent; by the time the British left it was down to about 4 percent," Tharoor said at Oxford. "Britain's rise for 200 years was financed by its depredations in India."

Tharoor noted the economic and military power Britain absorbed from India: he said by the end of the 19th century, India was the world's biggest purchaser of British goods. One-sixth of British forces during World War I were Indian. 2.5 million Indians contributed to the British military effort during World War II.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India was one of more than 1.5 million viewers of the 15-minute speech, available on YouTube, according to The Guardian. He recently endorsed the politician's argument in a rare show of transcending party lines; Tharoor belongs to the opposition Congress party.

Comment: Don't expect Britain to apologize or pay reparations for its plunder of India (or any other country) in the name of "Civilizing the Barbarians". British elites have neither the moral compass to consider it nor the means to pay it.

Nevertheless, this is a long overdue statement by Indian leaders.

Iran hits out at Kerry's 'empty threats' over nuclear deal

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif speaks in parliament in Tehran on July 21, 2015, to defend the Vienna accord on Iran's nuclear programme
Iran hit out Friday against US Secretary of State John Kerry, accusing him of threatening military action against Tehran if it fails to respect a historic nuclear deal sealed on July 14.

"Unfortunately the US Secretary of State once again talked about the rotten rope of 'the ability of the US for using military force'," said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a statement.


Comment: Well, we can't expect anything better than empty threats from Washington's paperboys on the behalf of Powers That Be.


Zarif decried what he called the "uselessness of such empty threats against the nation of Iran and the resistance of the nation of Iran", and said such remarks should be consigned "to the last century".

Despite the agreement reached with Iran on putting the nuclear bomb out of Tehran's reach, several US officials, including Defence Secretary Ashton Carter, have signalled that military force remains on the table to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

UK: Marijuana legalization petition gathers over 130,000 signatures; enough for parliament debate

A petition for the full legalization of marijuana in the UK has gathered more than 130,000 signatures in just four days, which means that the lawmakers must now consider debating it in Parliament or at least officially respond to the query.

The electronic petition, created by James Richard Owen, calls for the legalization of the production, sale and use of cannabis and currently has close to 135,000 signatures since being launched on Tuesday.

"Legalising cannabis could bring in £900m ($1,396m) in taxes every year, save £400m ($620m) on policing cannabis and create over 10,000 new jobs," the appeal on the government's website says.

The campaign also argues that the drug is "safer than alcohol," has been used by mankind for over 4,000 years, and was outlawed in the UK only in 1925.

Since the e-petition reached the required minimum of 100,000 signatures the MPs will now be forced to debate the declassification of the substance.

"There's roughly three million adult [cannabis] smokers in the UK and I don't think it's right for the government to be criminalising such a large section of society," Owen, an economics student at Aberystwyth University, told the Guardian.

Comment: A tax boost is just part of the picture. Note the effects of smoking pot:
  • Distorted sense of time; short-term memory loss;
  • Increased appetite (munchies);
  • Paranoia;
  • Delusions and magical or "random" thinking.
It seems to be another method the powers that be use to keep people completely oblivious to the world as it is and what is probably going to happen on this planet very soon.

The subversion of Myanmar: US-backed racist to run in elections

Ko Ko Gyi
Meet Ko Ko Gyi. He is a US-funded agitator working hard to reinstate Western hegemony in Myanmar (still referred to by its British imperial nomenclature "Burma" by the Western press) since at least the late 1980's. Now, he seeks to take the next step, running for office in upcoming elections, but in order to do so, the West will now have to cover up his dark past and his controversial present.

His "88 Generation Students" group is described by the BBC as:
The 88 Generation Students group is synonymous with the long struggle for democracy in military-ruled Burma.

Its name comes from the 1988 uprising, when troops opened fire on mass student demonstrations in Rangoon, leading to the deaths of thousands of people.
In addition to the 1988 protests, he and his group would join others, including throngs of saffron-clad "monks" during the so-called "Saffron Revolution" in 2007. Together with Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) party, these three groups form a trifecta of foreign-funded sociopolitical destabilization, subversion, and serve together as a vector for Western special interests seeking to reenter and despoil the Southeast Asian state's economy, resources, and sovereignty.

China dumps US treasuries at record rate

On Friday, alongside China's announcement that it had bought over 600 tons of gold in "one month", the PBOC released another very important data point: its total foreign exchange reserves, which declined by $17.3 billion to $3,694 billion.

We then put China's change in FX reserves alongside the total Treasury holdings of China and its "anonymous" offshore Treasury dealer Euroclear (aka "Belgium") as released by TIC, and found that the dramatic relationship which we first discovered back in May, has persisted - namely virtually the entire delta in Chinese FX reserves come via China's US Treasury holdings. As in they are being aggressively sold, to the tune of $107 billion in Treasury sales so far in 2015.

The UN's MH17 tribunal is a desperate attempt to cover tracks - Dutch journalist

© Reuters/Maxim Shemetov
The proposed UN-backed MH17 tribunal is a "desperate attempt to hide Kiev's responsibility", Dutch journalist and blogger Joost Niemoller argues in his post "How Chess Player Putin Wins the MH17 Game".

Niemoller is no layman. In October 2014 he published a book on the MH17 disaster whose title De Doofpotdeal ("The Cover Up Deal") summarizes its key argument. The inside flap explains what the author means:
"The Netherlands took charge of the investigation into the cause of the disaster, but agreed to grant a covert deal to Kiev.

It thus became a pawn in an international political chess game. Unvarnished Cold War rhetoric is making a comeback.

Putin here is the ultimate bad guy. What he says is labeled as poisonous propaganda in the West. Meanwhile, it seems, all those concerned suffer from tunnel vision.

Can we still be assured that the investigators do their work independently and objectively?"

Russia to launch credit rating agency that won't factor in geopolitical games

© Unknown
Sick of getting downgraded, Russia is launching its own new rating company that will be immune to geopolitical risks.

"The Russian market needs a strong credit rating agency with a high level of corporate governance and professional competence, capable of satisfying the interests of the economy [that is] authoritative enough for Russian and foreign investors," according to statement released by the Central Bank of Russia on Friday.

"Rating agencies are one of the most important elements of financial-market infrastructure and their activity should be resilient to various factors, including geopolitical risks," according to the statement.

In other words, the statement implies that a rating agency's assessment should not be affected by factors such as geopolitical risk.

Fearmongering and Islamophobic pseudo-journalism in America

Politico
(7/23/15) finds the "capital of American jihad" based on two examples - or maybe one.

Roughly 10 hours after another white, apparently racist Christian senselessly opened fire in a public place in the American South, Politico (7/23/15) published what has to be one of the worst pieces of Islamophobic pseudo-journalism this side of Pam Geller.

In his piece "Tennessee Is the Capital of American Jihad," author and "War on Terror" think-tanker James Kitfield sets out to draw a connection between the the recent Chattanooga shooter Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez and the case of Carlos Bledsoe, who shot up a recruiting station in Arkansas in 2009. The fact that both attacked recruiting stations, both lived in Tennessee and both were Muslim is apparently enough to make Tennessee the "Capital of American Jihad."

Yes. There is no other evidence provided. That is all.

Comment: Between Wesley Clarke's recent internment camp speech - individuals likely being mind-controlled for mass shootings - and the mediatwisting events as the above article mentions... well, you see where this is all going right?
