Australian guard at 'immigrant processing center' blows whistle on torture, spying

A former guard at Australia's infamous Nauru immigrant processing center has come out with shocking testimony pointing to waterboarding, saying he witnessed inmates coughing up water as they were leaving guarded tents.

The former Wilson Security guard had walked back on his earlier statement that he had witnessed asylum-seekers being actually waterboarded at Nauru. However, John Nichols told a Senate inquiry that he saw what pretty much amounted to direct evidence of the practice that first gained widespread notoriety at the United States' Guantanamo Bay prison, which involves simulated drowning.

He further said he had heard guards "brag openly" about the activity.

Comment: The allies of the U.S. support the destruction and exploitation of these immigrants' countries and then, when they arrive seeking asylum, they are tortured or beaten to death. It's an unbelievably evil system, and we're all caught up in it.

Nobel chairman requests Obama surrender his Peace Prize over Syria, Russian foreign policy gains ground

Comment: The former chairman of the Nobel Peace Committee unfortunately never did request the Peace Prize back from Obama. This news has circulated around the internet and originally appeared at a satire site. It's understandable the author would fall for it because a normal person would demand the prize back from a figure-head who oversaw the bombing of over a half dozen different countries during his time in office.


Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Peace Committee, said that US President Barack Obama "should really consider" an immediate surrender of his Nobel Peace Prize Medal. According to the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, Jagland, accompanied by four other members of the Committee, said that they had never asked for the return of the Peace Prize before, "even from such a war criminal as Henry Kissinger." The Committee awarded the Peace Prize to Barack Obama in 2009 after he had managed to convince everyone that he was supporting "the creation of a new environment ... of multilateral diplomacy" and emphasized the role of the United Nations, and such tools for resolving international conflicts, as dialogues and negotiations.

But reality has shattered the illusions of not only members of the Nobel Prize Committee, but also of the majority of the international community that is witnessing barbarity, cynicism, impudence, frank insolence, demagogy, cheap manipulation of facts incompetent members of the administration and the President himself freely use. "During the Obama's reign, and through the fault of the United States, the world has become even more insecure place," noted the Indian newspaper, Hindustan Times. "It is scary and creepy to live in it, and the future looks bleak, pessimistic and hopeless."

Ukrainian officer defects, accuses Kiev of ordering deployment of 'illegal & inhumane' anti-personnel mines

Kiev has been deploying anti-personnel mines in Donbass in breach of Ukraine's own laws as well as international treaties, claims a former high-ranking Ukrainian officer and chief of the engineering service, who refused to obey the "illegal" and "inhumane" order.


In February 2014 Vadim Yatsulyak served as chief of the engineering service of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine, before being appointed as a commander of the Army Corps of Engineers of the National Guard. According to him, one of the first orders he was given in his new role was to receive a supply of anti-personnel mines from military warehouses, that would be later deployed throughout the territory of the so-called "anti-terrorist operation" to reinforce Ukrainian army positions.

"I was given, to put it mildly, inhumane or in legal terms unlawful orders by my superiors," Yatsulyak told Russian tabloid Komsomolskya Pravda (KP) daily. "The deployment of anti-personnel mines in particular."

Yatsulyak explained he was basically told by phone to accept the delivery of OZM-72 and MON-50 munitions and sign for it, while superiors would "stay aside assuming no responsibility."

Refusing to implement the order, he notified his superiors, going as far as sending letters to the Minister of Defence, Ukraine's parliament, and even the president, but "never received a single reply" to more than 85 complaints which he had sent to various ministries and officials. Eventually Yatsulyak was sacked as "unfit" for the position, and later left the country.

Even though he was never ordered to actually install anti-personnel mines, Yatsulyak speculates that Kiev eventually circumvented the law to deploy them, given the number of reports of deadly mine explosions in Donbass.

Comment: Can we talk about war crimes now??

Britain's pedophilic establishment

Image
Britain has been rocked by incessant pedophile scandals since the revelations that the former DJ and BBC television presenter, Jimmy Savile, was involved in widespread child sex abuse. Even though the full scale of Savile's crimes will never be known, it is thought that he raped and sexually assaulted up to 1,000 girls and boys on the BBC's premises alone, with many accusing BBC executives of turning a blind eye to his nefarious activities. Savile, a man who looked as much like a pedophile as one possibly could, was also known to have been connected to Prince Charles, raising serious questions as to the British royal family's involvement and knowledge of Savile's sadistic behaviour.


Comment: Saville, and others were probably the 'fall guys' for a larger, more powerful network of pedophiles.


The crimes of the former presenter of 'Jim'll Fix It' are only the tip of the iceberg however, as the pedophile epidemic clearly permeates into the highest echelons of the British establishment. The UK's Home Secretary Theresa May stated in March that pedophilia is "woven, covertly, into the fabric of our society," a harrowing truth that the people of Britain will have to confront if a microcosm of justice is to be delivered to the victims of such malevolent crimes.

It seems every passing month brings a new revelation pertaining to alleged crimes committed against children by leading political figures and a subsequent cover-up by the establishment. The month of July was no different, as evidence surfaced which indicates that MI5 covered up for members of Margaret Thatcher's government who were accused of abusing children.

Newly released documents show that the Director General of MI5 from 1985 to 1988, Anthony Duff, told Thatcher's Cabinet Secretary that an unnamed MP had a "a penchant for small boys". Duff's 1986 letter to the Cabinet Secretary reveals that he accepted the MP's denial of any wrongdoing largely on the basis that: "At the present stage... the risks of political embarrassment to the government is rather greater than the security danger."

Comment: There are many pedophiles in positions of power all over the world. In order the make any sense of this, we need to understand psychopathy and take a good look at the world they have created:

A brutal look behind our fiat (debt) economy

Image
I recently watched a video clip of Bernie Sanders laying the boots to Alan Greenspan back in 2003, for Greenspan's seemingly out of touch perspective of the average American. Now while we do have a repentant banker in Greenspan, a rare phenomenon for sure, I found the scolding interesting in that essentially every accusation Sanders lays on Greenspan could be repeated today to our subsequent central banking gods. During the video notice that all the figures Sanders explicates not only remain true today but have gotten far worse. Particularly note the national debt figure which has now increased by more than 400% since then!!! The clip is well worth the 5 minutes.

Comment: A devastating economic collapse is surely around the corner. For a look at how the future cards may play out, see:

Bernie Sanders plans to introduce bill in September that would abolish private prisons

© AP Photo/ Ringo H.W. Chiu
Its not all talk with the rising star of the Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders, the senator from Vermont says in September he will be introducing full federal legislation to abolish private for-profit prisons.

The announcement came at a campaign rally attended by approximately 4,500 supporters in Nevada on Tuesday.

"When Congress reconvenes in September," Sanders said, "I will be introducing legislation, which takes corporations out of profiteering from running jails."

The senator spoke at length about unfair policies which disproportionately affect people of color and his plan to focus much of his campaign on the War on Drugs.

The senator is sure to face extreme backlash for his plans, as the private prison industry is massively profitable. Between the two leading prison corporations, Corrections Corporation of America and GEO Group, they bring in over 3 billion dollars annually- much of which is used for lobbying lawmakers.

"We want to deal with minimum sentencing," Sanders stated at the rally,"too many lives have been destroyed for non-violent issues. People that are sent to jail have police records. We have got to change that. Our job is to keep people out of jail, not in jail."

Comment: Bernie seems to be saying all the right things, but maybe there's more to it than meets the eye. See also: .

Thailand attack: Machinations of US primacy faltering in Asia?

An unprecedented terror attack unfolded Monday evening in Bangkok, Thailand leaving 20 dead and over a hundred injured. No single attack of this scale has been carried out in Bangkok before, prompting fears that Thailand's enemies have raised their campaign of sedition and violence to grisly new levels.

The Western media has floated several possibilities, attempting first and foremost to focus on the prospect of terrorists, either from Thailand's troubled southern-most provinces, or from China's Xinjiang region.

Thailand's southern-most provinces have seen a low-level insurgency rage since in 2001 US-backed dictator Thaksin Shinawatratook office and reignited violence after a nearly 20 year truce. However, violence within this conflict rarely erupts outside of Thailand's south, and has never struck Bangkok. While US-Saudi linked terrorist groups in the region have attempted to turn the localized insurgency into a wider front in the politically and financially lucrative "War on Terror," such efforts have so far failed.

The West is also floating the idea that Uyghur terrorists carried out that attack - citing the fact that the attack was carried out in a location where predominately Chinese tourists gather - claiming it was in retaliation to Thailand's decision to recently deport detained Uyghurs back to China. China claims those deported were terrorists caught being trafficked through Thailand's south before being shipped to Turkey where they would then join NATO-backed terrorists fighting in Syria.

It should be noted that immediately after the deportations just weeks ago, the US State Department funded and Washington D.C. based "World Uyghur Congress" (WUC) organized a violent protest which attacked and destroyed the Thai consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

China may take over strategic US military base in Djibouti, Africa

Camp Lemonnier in the tiny African state of Djibouti is the largest US military base in the entire African continent.
The tiny African state of Djibouti has reportedly ordered the US to vacate its secondary Obock military base in the nation in a bid to turn over the installation to the Chinese military and its contingent of 10,000 troops, raising major concerns in Washington, which holds the largest military base in Djibouti, Camp Lemonnier.

"The announcement, made the day after US Secretary of State John Kerry visited Djibouti last May, is deeply worrying for Pax Americana, for it comes on top of a major package of economic investments by China that has Djiboutian President [Ismaïl Omar] Guelleh openly talking about the importance of his new friends from Asia," US-based magazine CounterPunch wrote in an article on Monday.

According to the report, the US is about to lose one of its military bases in Djibouti, home to America's largest permanent military installation in Africa that includes 4,000 troops and a fleet of US assassination drones that run bombing missions in regional Muslim countries as part of Washington's official targeted killing program.

Comment: Can the US keep up with all of the world's changes? Will France, Germany and Japan continue to help or have they had enough? Stay tuned as the world turns.

Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran with lies, lies, lies

Nuclear deal review meeting in Tehran August 9, 2015.
The Associated Press - with great fanfare - ran an "exclusive" story masquerading what was in fact a glaring propaganda piece, according to which, under the P5+1, UN-ratified nuclear deal with Iran, the country would carry out some of the inspections of its own "sensitive sites."

There was nothing specific in the piece. The crucial document AP alleges to have "seen" was not even the final signed agreement between Iran and the IAEA. AP did not quote any passage from the document. The bombastic "exclusive" tag relied just on the opening paragraph's sensationalist language:

"Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear arms, operating under a secret agreement with the UN agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press."

The article states nothing specifically. "Own inspectors" - in this context - means that Iran, according to the agreement, is allowed to exclude "inspectors" from states which have their own confrontational agenda. Everyone knows who the usual suspects are.

According to the final agreement, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors must always be present at any inspection. The additional presence of Iranian experts allows them to track the selected UN inspectors; some of them may be outright spies, which was exactly the case with the 1990s UN inspections of Iraq.
