Scottish referendum result undoubtedly rigged

Apparently terrorized by the fear-mongering tactics of the British establishment media, in the form of hysterical warnings about food price rises and "societal disintegration", the fiercely independent Scottish people voted to remain in the UK. Or so the British establishment media would have us believe.

The official result matched the predictions of polls conducted by huge for-profit City of London market research companies. Prime Minister David Cameron declared that "this settles the independence debate for a generation." Case closed? I don't think so. We're being asked to believe that a majority of Scots voted 'Yes' to more austerity, 'Yes' to more wars in their name, 'Yes' to keeping nuclear weapons, 'Yes' to the continued theft of Scottish natural resources and 'Yes' to less democracy.

If all of that sounds unbelievable, it's because it is:
"It's not who votes that counts. It's who counts the votes."

Scots MP: Scottish National Party and Yes Campaign riddled with MI5 and other agents of British security state

British Military Intelligence sez: 'Better together'
Margo MacDonald MSP, who says she believes there are undercover agents operating in the SNP, told MI5 chief Andrew Parker that his staff should only be used to thwart criminal and terrorist acts, rather than engage in dirty tricks against those who support Scottish independence.

A Home Office spokesman declined to comment on the letter.

The purpose of MI5 is to protect the UK "against threats to national security", a form of words that could be interpreted as resisting the break-up of Britain. Some Nationalists have long believed the SNP was infiltrated in the 1970s by agents worried booming North Sea oil revenues could lead to independence.

MacDonald, a former deputy leader of the SNP and now an independent MSP, believes MI5 was active during the constitutional debate in this period and wants a commitment that such activity has ceased.

Comment: For the record, the newspaper that published the above article was the ONLY media outlet in the entire UK that supported Scottish independence. Margot MacDonald has since died.

Russian Union of Engineers report on the crash of flight MH17

The Russian Union of Engineers released a report on the crash of MH 17. Below is an excerpt of their findings. You can read the full report here for the impressive evidence they marshal to back up their conclusions.
"Between 17.17 - 17.20, the Boeing 777 was in Ukrainian airspace near the city of Donetsk at the height of 10100 m. An unidentified combat aircraft (presumably a Su-25 or MiG -29), which was a tier below, on a collision course, in the cloud layer, sharply gained altitude and suddenly appeared out of the clouds in front of the civilian aircraft and opened fire on the cockpit, firing from a 30 mm caliber cannon or smaller. The pilot of a fighter jet can do this while in "free hunting" mode (using onboard radar) or with the help of navigational guidance using airspace situation data from ground-based radar.

As a result of multiple hits from shells there was damage to the cockpit, which suddenly depressurized, resulting in instant death for the crew due to mechanical influences and decompression. The attack was sudden and lasted a fraction of a second; in such circumstances the crew could not sound any alarm as the flight had been proceeding in regular mode and no attack was expected.

Since neither the engines or hydraulic system, nor other devices required for the continuation of the flight were out of commission, the Boeing 777, running on autopilot (as is standard), continued on its horizontal flight path, perhaps gradually losing altitude."

Obama's 'don't do stupid stuff' turned upside down

Obama stupid stuff cartoon

I've been rovin' around Europe for a while and the star of the show is definitely The Caliph. Former Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has totally outstripped Vladimir Putin as Doctor Evil of the hour. Where's a good ol' Cold War 2.0 when you need it? Well, upstaged by the Pentagon's "long war" - our familiar GWOT (Global War on Terror).

First Obama promised there would be no ground troops to fight The Caliph - as in a re-invasion of Iraq. Then General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that if the current gambit of Obama's self-defined "Don't So Stupid Stuff" foreign policy doctrine does not work - and it won't - he'll go for ground troops, embedded or otherwise.

Right on cue, The Caliph went Hollywood, releasing the trailer of The Caliphate's upcoming mega-production, Flames of War. Directed by Michael Bay (Fall, 2014). Will that go straight to Netflix?

You just can't beat the Marvel Comics school of geopolitics.

The Caliph and other boogymen of intelligence agencies

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi leads a terrorist army known variously as ISIS or the Islamic State.
As the Barack Obama administration seeks reliable allies to confront the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (ISIL) - the official U.S. Department of Defense nomenclature for the newest radical Islamist bogeyman that has eclipsed "Al Qaeda" as global "public enemy number one" - the United States is on the precipice of falling into another Middle Eastern quagmire.

The deeper one digs into the operations surrounding the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL), or, as it is variably called, "Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham" (ISIS), "Al Dawlah" (the State), or "Da'ish" (a concatenation of "al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi Iraq wa al-Sham," the more the Islamist insurgent group's links to Western and Israeli intelligence are revealed. ISIL is an outgrowth of the Organization of Jihad's Base in the Country of the Two Rivers or Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. As with the current leader of ISIL, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, questions surrounded the background of Zarqawi.

As described in a PowerPoint slide created by the Multinational Force - Iraq (MNFI), Zarqawi was largely a menacing character created by the Pentagon's psychological operations, media operations, and special operations to leverage a xenophobic response from Iraq's religious and ethnic groups, including Shi'as, moderate Sunnis, Sufis, and Kurds.

In a 2004 slide titled "Result," the MNFI bragged that its creation of the Zarqawi threat had the following desired results:

"Abu Musab al-Zarqawi now represents:

a.​ Terrorism in Iraq

b.​ Foreign Fighters in Iraq

c.​ Suffering of Iraqi People (Infrastructure Attacks)

d.​ Denial of Iraqi Aspirations (Disrupting Transfer of Sovereignty)

The slide concludes with a description of the effect of promoting Zarqawi as the top threatening terrorist in Iraq, which was to:

"Eliminate popular support for a potentially sympathetic insurgency. Deny ability of insurgency to 'take root' among the people."

Putin's maneuvers in Ukraine: A push toward ... peace?


A toast to peace.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is waging peace his own way in Ukraine, despite a chorus of accusations from the West that he is acting aggressively.

Make no mistake, Russia is still backing Ukraine's separatist rebels. And fighting, though subdued, still continues in eastern Ukraine between the rebels and government troops. That's even after Putin and Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko formalized a ceasefire.

But there are concrete steps toward an agreement that will give Russia some of what it wants. For example, Ukraine's parliament voted to give a three-year period of limited autonomy to the breakaway eastern regions. If the ceasefire holds, Russia may find itself freed from new EU sanctions, which have sent its currency tumbling to a record low.

The worst-case scenario of renewed large-scale violence is receding as a possibility. Yet the danger of a frozen conflict that could turn hot at any point remains. Besides, an energy and trade war with unpredictable results looms unless a comprehensive solution to the crisis is crafted.

This last part may be the key to understanding why Moscow is swinging a big stick while speaking softly about the need for negotiation and the preservation of Ukraine's territorial integrity. It has everything to do with the difference between the Russian idea of making peace and the Western conception of it.

Germany is Putin's opportunity to break up NATO, EU


Russian President Vladimir Putin (shown) sees in the conflict between Washington’s pressure on Germany and Germany’s real interests a chance to break up NATO and the EU, writes Craig Roberts.
Western propaganda about events in Ukraine has two main purposes. One is to cover up, or to distract from, Washington's role in overthrowing the elected democratic government of Ukraine. The other is to demonize Russia.

The truth is known, but truth is not a part of the Western TV and print media. The intercepted telephone call between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt reveals the two coup plotters discussing which of Washington's stooges will be installed as Washington's person in the new puppet government.

The intercepted telephone call between Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and EU foreign policy official Catherine Ashton revealed suspicions, later confirmed by independent reports, that the sniper fire that killed people on both sides of the Kiev protests came from the Washington-backed side of the conflict.

Obama's sleight of hand in Syria

© Josetxo Ezcurra
If you ask me I will tell you that America watched the Cancer of Al-Baghdadi and his Islamic State spread from Syria back into Iraq to create an excuse to bomb Bashar Al-Assad in Syria.


Remember earlier Obama wanted to carry out airstrikes against Syria's government in retaliation for a highly questionable chemical attack, despite the fact that earlier in 2013 Iraq arrested over 150 Islamic State of Iraq-affiliated takfiri terrorists who were preparing chemical weapons in Baghdad with chemicals imported from Kuwait, Germany and Saudi Arabia. Obama's airstrikes plan was put on hold because the American and Western public saw through the flimsy sham. Instead of going to bomb Assad a little as punishment for using 'chemical weapons' on civilians, the American public understood he was going to use the cover of that to use the US Airforce to serve as the Free Syrian Army's air force a la Libya where Obama used the lie of protecting 'civilians' to use the US Airforce to help the rebels defeat Gaddafi.

Anyways to save face after the American public opposed his adventurism in Syria, he claimed he needed Congressional approval to bomb Syria, thinking that McCain an Lindsey Graham (the two vultures that thrive on consuming corpses) would get it for him. Surprise! He would have lost in Congress, so Putin graciously offered him a way out of his rope I.e the agreement to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.

Comment: It was Putin too, who called the chemical attack for what it was: a false flag on the part of the rebels.

Narendra Modi's new world: First 100 days,10 top moves

Narendra Modi at Red Fort delivering the Independence Day speech
It's been 100 days since May 20, when Narendra Modi staked his claim to be Prime Minister after having led the Bharatiya Janata Party to an emphatic win in the Lok Sabha elections, largely on the promise of providing a cleaner, better governance model and higher economic growth. Since then, there have been some rhetorical flourishes from the PM, but the general consensus seems to be that he hasn't done enough to boost growth or taken steps to actually improve ground-level administration.

Having said that, the Modi government has taken some interesting policy decisions in the 100 days since the time he met President Pranab Mukherjee to present his claim as Prime Minister of the world's largest democracy. We take a quick look at the top 10 moves from the government since then.

1) Foreign capital welcome

One of the big ticket reforms that the NDA government has undertaken is to open up two high-capex sectors - defence and railways - to foreign direct investment (FDI). In his Budget statement, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said 100% FDI would be allowed for some railways projects, while up to 49% foreign investment would be permissible in the critical defence sector.

Comment: In a rather rare move, Modi reportedly summoned the son of his Home Minister Rajnath Singh, accused of "bribe and misconduct", and scolded him, thus creating a political storm and damage control.

Though Modi started his rule with consolidation of power by politically isolating his party founders and other acts and appointing only "Yes PM" cabinet, he has started to show of maturity and courage in expressing his convictions.

Parasitic leaders in Spain to go to any lengths to avoid independence referendum

Girls wearing “estelada” flags, that symbolizes Catalonia's independence, sit on the street in Barcelona, Spain, Thursday, Sept 11, 2014.
Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo said the Spanish government will use every possible legal measure to prevent Catalonia's secession, Europa Press reported Tuesday.

"There is a line that should not be crossed. The government will use all legal tools available to prevent a separation referendum that contradicts Spanish law, ignores the international community, and that will have dire consequences for Catalonia, Spain and the European Union," the minister was quoted as saying by the agency.

Comment: For those who bow down to IMF austerity and psychopathy that brutalizes innocent people there are no boundaries, there are no rights, and only the fearless self-determination of communities saying "enough" can prevail under these circumstances:

Comment: Fascism is back but with a mustache trim. The Catalonians fought against the psychopathic "Gladio" experiment of Francisco Franco the first time around, and still fight for their rights today:
The [Spanish Civil] war stripped away many illusions that led [George] Orwell to this personal crusade against Generalissimo Francisco Franco. Orwell quickly discovered that hard-line communists Stalin sent to stiffen the ranks of the resistance were in reality no better than the fascists in both their methods and ideology. Were he alive today, Orwell would wring his hands at the plight of Catalonians, finding themselves once again crushed by ruthless foreign invaders and looters.

I am speaking of the EU imposed austerity measures which have wrenched the entire Spanish economy to a shuddering standstill. Catalonia, which accounts for a fifth of Spain's total GDP, has responded by rekindling the spirit of independence. The province is already semi-detached but its unfortunate destiny marks it as the Spanish Tibet - lashed to Madrid, tossed some morsels of quasi-self determination but its people denied the sovereign freedom to make their own choices.
