China and Russia are to build one of the largest ports in northeast Asia on Russia's Sea of Japan coast, Chinese media reports. It is the latest step by Beijing and Moscow to bring their economies closer, and diversify from Western influence.

The new seaport will be located in Russia's Far East, just 18 kilometers away from the Chinese border and will be capable to handle up to 60 million tons of cargo a year, China's state-run People's Daily Online reported.

The deal between the two countries was signed at May's Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) in Shanghai, the report said.

Igor Strelkov on Novorossiya, the Russian Spring, war against the West, and the Russian Fifth Column

Today, Igor Strelkov, previously the head of the Donetsk People's Republic Militia, gave his first public address since his resignation in August. Rumor had it that Strelkov was forced out by Russian influence, leading to the changes of leadership that saw the successful offensive actions taking by the newly christened Novorossiyan Armed Forces. While he doesn't confirm or deny that, Strelkov has much to say of importance in this briefing, specifically regarding the real motivations behind the war in Ukraine, its importance for Russia, and the continued interference of the West and their fifth column in Russia.

Warmongering French Defense Minister calls for new Libya intervention, calls it 'terrorist hub' on Europe's doorstep

Rebel fighters jump away from shrapnel during heavy shelling by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi near Bin Jawad, March 6, 2011.
The world must act in Libya as it is quickly turning into a major "terrorist hub" on Europe's doorstep, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned. France played a key role in the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya that led to the current chaos.

It's high time to "sound the alarm about the seriousness of the situation in Libya," Le Drian said in an interview with Le Figaro newspaper.

"The south [of Libya] is a sort of hub for terrorist groups where they come to re-supply - including with weapons - and re-organize. In the north, the political and economic centers of the country are now at risk of falling under jihadist control," he said.

Le Drian commented that the crisis-hit North African state was "the gateway both to Europe and the Sahara." Libya is a short flight or a boat ride away from Europe, with just over 1,000 kilometers separating it from Malta and the Italian island of Sicily in the Mediterranean.

The minister also warned that the country is the region's "trafficking zone, beginning with human trafficking."

"We need to act in Libya and mobilize the international community," Le Drian said, adding that French troops stationed in Mali could be moved closer to Libyan borders.

Nonsense: Banks plan their escape to London if Scotland chooses independence

Partly-nationalized British banks Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) both say they would relocate their headquarters to London if Scots vote for independence on September 18.

Recent polls indicating pro-union and independence camps are neck and neck have rocked British financial markets and pushed the pound to its lowest value since November.

RBS, which has been based in Scotland since 1727, claimed it would be "necessary to re-domicile the bank's holding company" because of "a number of material uncertainties arising from the Scottish referendum vote."

In a statement, the bank claimed independence could have a bearing on "credit ratings, and the fiscal, monetary, legal and regulatory landscape to which it is subject.

"For this reason, RBS has undertaken contingency planning for the possible business implications of a 'yes' vote. RBS believes that this is the responsible and prudent thing to do and something that its customers, staff and shareholders would expect it to do."

Comment: The psychopathic faction in the UK banking system and government are not going to allow Scotland's money to slip out of their greedy clutches. Ellen Brown suggests that Scotland's economic sovereignty could include a public bank option which wisely excludes the Big Bankers:

Too late: Homeland Security wants to stem use of military weapons during protests by forcing police agencies to repay federal grants

Comment: What you see here is an attempt by the government to put the toothpaste back into the tube. It's a little late for the federal government to act as though it is upset over the actions of the police in Missouri during the Ferguson protests. They armed and helped train police forces across the U.S. to operate essentially as military units. This is merely a P.R. effort by the government to act as though it is just as upset over what happened in Ferguson as the general public. They're not. Don't be fooled by their crocodile tears. If they didn't want the scenario that unfolded in Ferguson to occur, they wouldn't have created the programs and training for police agencies to use. They did, and they are just as complicit as the local police for what happened in Ferguson during the protests.


The United States Department of Homeland Security may require the local police forces it supplies with military-grade weapons to repay federal anti-terrorism grants should the items be used to suppress dissent.

A representative of the DHS, one of three federal agencies responsible for allocating military equipment to local police forces, indicated during the first congressional hearing devoted to the last month's civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri that the department is considering demanding that grant money be repaid should weapons be used to tamp down protests.

"We have a range of remedies should [the Dept. of Justice] find non-compliance, including recoupment of funds," Brian Kamoie of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) of the Senate Homeland Security Committee during a hearing on Tuesday this week in Washington, DC.

The US Department of Justice and the White House are investigating the possibility of limiting federal programs that have distributed an immense amount of local law enforcement agencies with armored vehicles and other military weapons in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

One way the US government distributes military-grade weaponry to local police departments is through the Department of Defense's 1033 program, in which the Pentagon offers hundreds of millions of dollars in surplus military equipment to police forces throughout the US. For instance, St. Louis County, which encompasses Ferguson, is part of the program, as RT has reported. Ferguson became the focus of law enforcement militarization, among other issues, following the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer in August.

Ten signs ISIS is a scripted psyop

© www.dailymail.co.uk
Taking time out of their hectic day, ISIS members pose for the camera.
Has the ISIS psyop calmed down a bit? Before it dies out let's examine some incredible ironies and oddities surrounding CIA's ISIS. After all, the ISIS psyop deserves a thorough analysis from every angle, so I thought it appropriate to outline for the sake of humanity. Hopefully, humanity can use the ISIS psyop as a tool for the final or further awakening. It may be wishful thinking, but it is worth exposing every crack and corner of this psyop and let government know that we are not going for it this time.

I declare humanity too intuitive to buy into this psychological operation and hopefully I'm right. So while the core TV-watching, mainstream media-believing community drinks the government Kool Aid, let us get started by pointing out several glaring observations regarding the ISIS psyop.

Glancing ahead, the ISIS kids have knowledge of things that require you to have education, modern technical skills, a little bit of decency, structure, conformity to societal norms and somewhat transparent connection to the outside world. What are these things and what are some of the surreal oddities surrounding ISIS? Let's examine:

1. Professional Camera, Editing Software and Skills

© www.longwarjournal.org
Many photos of ISIS "executions" show bullets hitting sand.
Incredibly, despite being savages that only want to kill for apparently no specific burning reason other than that fact that you are not ISIS, ISIS has at least some kind of production department that can skillfully provide what could be considered Hollywood-style editing (of supposed beheading videos) with multiple camera angles, consistent daylight on their subjects and proper daylight mode video exposure. They clearly have the skills for setting up multiple cameras and using those precise angles for their production department. In order to put out these supposed beheading videos, they also had to make sure that the sounds were just right and that there was no shaking of the camera.

Someone then had to take the various video angles and properly edit the footage so as to make it look professional. The editor, apparently a man of class and decency, then is careful not to show any actual action and blood. Savage killers who are ALSO respectful and classy about being too disturbing with their videos. Instead they courteously (but sloppily) cut from the early hand action of their British-sounding supposed lead man, to the post beheading amazingly clean shot of a head sitting on a corpse with the classic Photoshop drop shadows. In Hollywood style, reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock films, the editor essentially leaves the action to the viewer's imagination. Even though this beheading movie created by ISIS is not being submitted for any film festivals, they carefully comply with techniques that would make this film fully acceptable into almost any gore film festival.

To those who want to point out to viewers the amazing lack of blood during those first critical throat slices of James Foley's neck, sorry, exposing this lack of blood is in itself apparently too grotesque by YouTube standards and should you post such a video it will be conveniently removed.

Comment: This author assumes ISIS is made up entirely of "young kids," which may be the main fallacy point of the article. It is, however, conceivable that there are: secondary handlers and services that provide all the backstory feasibility to create and support the ongoing bogeyman; a legitimate conspiracy by the U.S., U.K. and Israel to launch ISIS; a home-grown manufacture of terror and a whopping "pull-the-wool" fiction engineering lies and narratives to perpetuate reasons for the neocon agenda's access to this vital area. Perhaps it is a bonus that it also happens to camouflage other events happening behind the scenes, or in plain sight, but diverted by a public repulsion to brutal scenarios, live or fake. Will we believe ISIS is all it "appears" to be, or will this backfire on the psychopaths who put it into motion? Up to you.

What would real proof of Russian invasion on Ukraine look like?

According to the US State Department, Russian self-propelled harvesters are firing at Ukraine
Once again the headlines shout that Russia has invaded Ukraine. Once again NATO offers blurry satellite shots from a commercial service for evidence. Here are June's "invasion" satellite photos. This month's "invasion" satellite photos are here. Again from a commercial source, Digital Globe. Photo 1: some "Russian" SPGs in Ukraine (everybody uses "Russian" ie Soviet equipment and the rebels have captured quite a lot). Photo 2: Some deployed artillery in Ukraine (ludicrously explained as how "trained military professionals" would deploy it. Hasn't anyone in NATO HQ realised that the east Ukrainian rebels are pretty competent?) Photo 3: A Russian base with stuff in it and without stuff in it (but aren't we continually told about the Russian "buildup on the border", always alarming, always threatening, whatever the numbers: "very, very sizable" in March, 40K in April, 12K in July,20K in August. One should not be surprised that there's some variance of equipment at a given base over time). Photo 4 and 5: Some guns in Russia pointing towards Ukraine (where, by the way, as NATO intelligence may know, there is a war going on with occasional firing into Russia. All military are trained to expect the worst.) And, by the way, if Russia did invade, don't you think it would do it in strength rather than a couple of tanks here and a gun or two there? No wonder the Russians are laughing at this "evidence"; this isn't evidence of anything except how gullible NATO thinks its taxpayers are.

Is Putin part of New World Order?

I'll be honest; it has been difficult for me to write this piece. I started many times, added some notes here hand there, but had some reluctance to publish it. Despite my going pretty deep, it seemed to me that the issue was still deeper than that. Something still seemed unsaid that should have been said. There still seemed to be some forces, and some hidden, not very flattering features of the human psyche, that were so dark and unsavory that I was unwilling to delve in.

Being an empath and Intellect Shifter, I usually find that there are no mysteries in this world. Everything is usually laid out in front of me like an ever-changing tapestry, including events, their profound motivations, and the deepest human emotions, as well. It is a rather rare instance when I find myself in disbelief that even those I consider smart people can get so easily caught in the web of lies. What is it in human psyche that allows it to build walls so easily, and to believe lies so readily?

In short, I can tell you what it is: it is called fear, the built-in human emotion that is supposed to safeguard us from danger. It's a very useful warning mechanism; yet, due to the misused human ego and mind games, fear most of the time becomes the reason for the humans' self-fulfilling prophecy.

It's just that it's so unbelievably obvious! How can people not see the traps laid out for them by forces with the darkest of the dark ulterior motives?

But this is another topic, which is very important, and I plan to discuss it in my future articles.

For now, I'll repeat the advice I have given before. To get out of the matrix of fear, raise your vibration to the level of reason, and subsequently, to love. Important clue: love without reason will still lead you astray; you need both to effectively function in the middle realm, also described as the earthly human realm.

ISIS and Israel allies against a Palestinian state

© New york Times
An image speaks a thousand words - and that is presumably what Israel's supporters hoped for with their latest ad in the New York Times.

Two photographs are presented side by side. One, titled ISIS, is the now-iconic image of a kneeling James Foley, guarded by a black-hooded executioner, awaiting his terrible fate. The other, titled Hamas, is a scene from Gaza, where a similarly masked killer stands over two victims, who cower in fear. A headline stating This is the face of radical Islam tries, like the images, to equate the two organisations.

We have heard this line repeatedly from Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who tweeted "Hamas is ISIS" after the video of Foley's beheading aired. Last week, in a speech addressed to the family of Steven Sotloff, ISIS's latest victim, he called Hamas and ISIS "tentacles of a violent Islamist terrorism." Netanyahu's depiction of Hamas and ISIS, or Islamic State, as "branches of the same poisonous tree" is a travesty of the truth.

The two have entirely different - in fact, opposed - political projects. ISIS wants to return to a supposed era of pure Islamic rule, the caliphate, when all Muslims were subject to God's laws (sharia). Given that Muslims are now to be found in every corner of the globe, the implication is that ISIS ultimately seeks world domination.

Hamas's goals are decidedly more modest. It was born and continues as a national liberation movement, seeking to create a Palestinian state. Its members may disagree on that state's territorial limits but even the most ambitious expect no more than the historic borders of a Palestine that existed a few decades ago.

ISIS aims to sweep away Palestine and every other Arab state in the region. That is the key to interpreting the very different, if equally brutal, events depicted in the two images.

During ceasefire agreement, NATO countries to supply Kiev with modern weaponry

© RIA Novosti/Nikolay Lazarenko
Poroshenko has agreed direct deliveries of modern weaponry from several NATO countries.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has agreed on direct deliveries of modern weaponry from several NATO countries, a statement on his website said Monday.

"Agreements with a number of NATO countries have been reached ensuring direct supplies of modern weaponry, which will help us to defend ourselves and achieve a victory," the statement said.


Comment: To "defend ourselves" as used here means exactly the same as when the Israeli IDF uses the phrase after having initiated a war against unarmed defenseless civilians.


"We are counting on ourselves, but we desperately need financial and technical-military aid. And we will get it," the document said.

On September 7, Yuri Lutsenko, senior aide to the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, claimed that the United States, France, Italy, Poland and Norway had agreed to supply modern armaments to Ukraine at the September 4-5 NATO summit in Wales. Reuters disproved the information by citing an anonymous high-profile US official. Italy, Norway and Poland have also denied the existence of any arrangements to supply weapons to Ukraine. France declined to comment on the issue, Reuters reported.

Comment: From Interfax Ukraine posted also today, we get a bit more details on what exactly Kiev is going to receive in weaponry and by when:
The Ukrainian Defense Ministry expects to be supplied with 145 items of military hardware, including planes, helicopters, and armored vehicles, by the end of 2014, Ihor Odnoralov, a deputy director of the Defense Ministry department for development and procurement of weapons and military hardware, said at a news conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

"We expect to receive 145 items of military hardware by the end of the year. These are planes, helicopters, and armored vehicles. We also expect over 500 domestically-manufactured firearms, about 2,000 thermal imagers, and about 200 special communications devices," Odnoralov said.

The Defense Ministry has received UAH 6.9 billion out of the UAH 11.7 billion allocated for its needs in the 2014 national budget and has spent UAH 3.2 billion, he said.
