STORY OF THE FIRST RUSSIAN “FEMINISTS”: WOMEN OF THE “DEATH BATTALION” (1917)

On this month in history… July 1917

THE FIRST RUSSIAN “FEMINISTS”

DDy0IaXWsAAsF9g100 years ago this month, 2,000 Russian women volunteered to fight for their country. 300 passed the basic training. On July 21, 1917, the 170 women under the command of Maria Bochkaryeva (right), repulsed 14 German attacks in 3 days on the territory of today’s Belarus.

30 of them were killed, 70 wounded, including the commander. That’s how they earned the nickname the “death battalion.”

Of the 300 Russian women who passed the basic training and received their military banner on July 4, 1917 in a ceremony at Saint Isaacs Cathedral in Saint Petersburg, 70 never came back. More than 100 were wounded.

That’s the Russian version of FEMINISM and equality between men and women. Fighting for their country.


THE AMERICAN FEMINISTS

Now, with that as a preamble, take a look at these pictures of some of the leading American feminists. And then answer the question: “Do you see any of these women fighting for their country?”

“That’s a joke, right?” you might think. “A trick question.”

I know. It seems that way. For, it would be indeed absurd to imagine the likes of Whoopi Goldberg or Hillary Clinton or Oprah or some these other Hollywood stars, taking up arms and fighting for America. Most of them are too busy trying to emasculate the men, and fight for the gay, lesbian and transgender rights. And for women in politics. So they could all together lord over men.

And they do it by wagging their tongues as talking heads on TV, of course, not arms.

And they are not even being original at that. Like the early feminist Gloria Steinem, for example. At least she took some chances by spying for the CIA.

“WOMEN’S LIB” FUNDED BY NEW WORLD ORDER, ROCKEFELLERS

Did you know, by the way, that the “women’s lib” was actually funded by the New World Order chieftains, such as the Rockefellers?

Yep. The Truth in Media wrote about that 2.5 years ago. See NEW WORLD ORDER’S WAR ON AMERICAN FAMILY,, Jan 2, 2015 -p http://wp.me/p3QU1S-LO.

With so many women around the world already in high political offices, why do you think women desire (political) power?

They don’t. Women already have more power than men and always have. Because they are in charge of CREATION. And LIFE PRESERVATION. That’s the natural order of things which the New World Order elite are trying to change. They want women to be like men.

Why?

“The world we know today, the world being propagated by the powers that be of the New World Order – it is the world of constant conflict and warfare… between the nations and tribes and between the genders.”

But why would women want to be like that? Why would they want to be tougher than men? “History is littered with millions of corpses that male ambition, greed and quest for power has left behind,” I wrote in this Aug 2016 editorial, WOMEN AND POWER: ATTRACTION CONCEIVED BY THE DEVIL (i.e., NWO) – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1Fn.

Check it out. You will find many more fascinating facts about how and why the New World Order invented and funded feminism.


RUSSIAN WOMEN BECAME HEROES BECAUSE MEN WERE DESERTING

Now back to that Russian WW I story. The 2,000 Russian women who volunteered to fight the Germans did not do that because they were natural born heroins. They did it because by the summer of 1917, the Russian army was demoralized and headless.

The Tsar had been deposed. The Kerensky government was floundering. Men were deserting en masse.  So they decided to take up arms hoping this would inspire the men to do the same and keep on fighting.

It did not work, partly due to communist agitators who were trying to get the Russian soldiers to desert. So that the Bolsheviks could overthrow the government and take over. The seeds of the revolution, which was yet to come three months later, were being planted the summer of 1917.

So these Russian women-soldiers fought under most difficult circumstance, without any fanfare or parades, with the sole goal of protecting their motherland. And that is a mark of a true hero.

Slava im! (“Glory to them!”)

MYSTERY OF MARIA’S LIFE AND DEATH: WAS SHE REALLY EXECUTED?

The story of the first Russian female battalion commander Maria Bochkaryeva is quite fascinating. It would certainly make a great movie. Alas, Hollywood is not interested in Russian heroes. The Russians are always the bogeys in La La Land productions. So let me share with the gist of her life and death…

Maria was born into a peasant family in Imperial Russia in 1889.  Her life started off miserably. She was sent to work at the age of eight, received regular beatings, was a victim of sexual assault, and was physically abused by the men in her life, including her father and husband.

When the war with Germany and Austria-Hungary broke out in 1914, she decided to leave her past behind and become a soldier.

I cut off my hair, dressed in men’s clothes, and provided myself with two loaves of bread,” Bochkareva recalls in her memoirs, written down by bilingual American journalist Isaac Don Levine in 1918.

Not surprisingly, she was denied entry into the Imperial Army because she was a woman and was advised to try herself out as a sister of mercy.

Undaunted, Maria sent a telegram appealing directly to Tsar Nicholas II. To everyone’s astonishment, she received a positive answer.

In November 1914, she joined the 25th Tomsk Reserve Battalion of the Imperial Russian Army where gradually she grew to be admired and respected by her fellow soldiers.

In 1917, after the February Revolution that toppled the monarchy, War Minister Alexander Kerensky approached Maria with the idea of forming Russia’s first female battalion.

After the Bolsheviks came to power in the October of 1917, Bochkareva fled to the United States via Vladivostok, in Russia’s Far East (like another “Dr Zhivago” script).

There she was received in the White House by the President Woodrow Wilson, who was said to have been moved by her story.

She returned to Russia in 1918 to continue her fight against the Bolsheviks. But she was arrested and sentenced to death. The execution was to be carried out on May 16, 1920.

However, when Maria was rehabilitated in 1992, no statement of the execution was found in the communist archives. Her biographer, Sergey Drokov, believes she was never shot, but was saved by journalist Isaac Don Levine, who was in Russia at that time, seeking (in vain) a meeting with Lenin.

And so the mystery of Maria’s life will live on forever (see https://on.rt.com/8if4).

Here’s are links to two stories at RT.COM which describe their plight and heroism.

WHY DO WOMEN DESIRE POWER?

And What Does the Spirit Realm Think of That Craving…

Women have come a long way in politics since they won the right to vote on this very day 96 years ago – Aug 18, 1920 (19th Amendment). Today, 104 or 19% of our congressional representatives are female. Twenty women are currently in the Senate (20%).

Some say that’s not enough especially compared to women in power elsewhere in the world (see the map).  Others look at the likes of Hillary Clinton and say, “who’d want more of that kind of women in power?”

WHY ARE THERE NOT MORE WOMEN IN POSITIONS OF POWER?

So why are there not more women in powerful positions? Opinions vary greatly depending on the gender.  But both men and women agree that women and men would make equally good political leaders.

About three-quarters (73%) of women said it’s easier for men to get elected to high political office, while 58% of men agreed. And 38% of women said that having more women in top political or business leadership positions would improve the quality of life for all women “a lot.” Only half as many men (19%) agreed.

There were similar differences by political party on this question, with more than twice as many Democrats (39%) as Republicans (17%) saying that having more women in high political office would improve the lives of women, while independents (28%) ranked in the middle.

For the most part, Americans – including similar shares of men (74%) and women (76%) – said in a 2014 Pew Research Center survey that women and men make equally good political leaders.

When it comes to essential traits of a leader, both men and women saw women as being more compassionate and better organized than men, and saw men as being more ambitious and decisive in risk taking than women. For most leadership traits, an even higher share said that both genders possess them equally.

So there is really nothing stopping women from getting to higher positions of power other than themselves. Just like men.  One has to fight to get ahead. If that’s what leadership is about.

WHY DO WOMEN DESIRE POWER?

One question that all these gender leadership surveys did not ask is – WHY DO WOMEN DESIRE POWER?

One does not need to ask that question about men. History is littered with millions of corpses that male ambition, greed and quest for power has left behind.

But why would women want to be like that? Why would they want to be tougher than men? Those are the questions I have often asked myself and never quite been able to come up with a clear answer.

That’s because the first and the most important role of any woman is to CREATE LIFE. Not to destroy it.

When I was as an Inca shaman attending “Mystery Schools” in the High Andes run by the Apus, the Mountain Spirits (angels) and Santa Tierras (female spirits) themselves, some of the angels said that women’s main role is that of Creation of the New Breed of Man (see Conversations with Mountain Spirits, July 2008 – http://altzar.org/Spiritual/Peru_Notes_2008.html).

“In answer to a request from a woman in our group, the female earth spirit (Santa Tierra?) said that the women don’t need a blessing because they have been given the “power of creation.”  “You are responsible for creating a new breed of man,” she added.

“But what about women who are not mothers?” another woman asked from a back row.

“All women are mothers,” the female spirit retorted without hesitation, as if anticipating the question.  “You give birth to luminous ideas,” she added, pointing out to Mother Theresa as a case in point.

“And what about us?” (men), I asked.

“You don’t need the blessing, either,” Santa Tierra replied.  “You have the intelligence from the celestial sources with which to lead mankind as decision makers.” (The feminists may take note of that answer, unless, of course, they think they are smarter than the Creator’s spirits).

To summarize the Spirit message:

  • Women are responsible for the creation of a new breed of man in the Age of Aquarius
  • All women are mothers, even those without children – because they all give birth to luminous ideas
  • Men receive the intelligence from the celestial sources to lead mankind as decision makers

To me, this is all straightforward and clear cut. But when I look around at the reality in the physical world that men and women of the New World Order are trying to create, I see nothing but contradictions and conflicts.

Women trying to take power from men? That’s a silly notion. Women already have more power than men from birth.Because they are in charge of birthing (creation). [ALTZAR – based on Spirit realm Mystery School teachings for shamans, July 2008]

So you see now why I have been confused all this years? Given the natural order of things according to the spirit realm, I don’t understand why women pushing and shoving like men trying to to take the place of men in the order of Creation, instead of focusing on their own primary job – Creation itself?

One thing is for sure – the world we know today, the world being propagated by the powers that be of the New World Order – it is the world of constant conflict and warfare… between the nations and tribes and between the genders.

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE – that was the New World Order motto I coined more than 20 years ago when I first discerned this.

Only a devil or his emissary could have devised something like that. You saw from our discussions with the Spirit realm, the angels – the Apus and Santa Tierras – male and female spirits – are both opposed to it. It is not their world we are creating by our silence and acquiescence. It is the work of the devil.

And it is no accident. This is all by design (see New World Order’s War on American Family & Social Order, Jan 2015):

The New World Order social agenda is:

* Defeminize the female, emasculate the male

* Destroy the American family by sending women into the work force

* Brainwash children to become obedient dolts and shopping automats as adults 

 * … then tax and rule the world

In the 1960´s, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order (see Rense and New World Order’s War on American Family & Social Order, Jan 2015, Truth in Media)

So knowing that we are deliberately being led into a disaster by the power that be with their feminist agenda, and that it runs directly opposite to the order of things seen by the Spirit realm, who do we follow – the NWO leaders or our Spirit guides?

 

HOW TO VOTE WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW THE CANDIDATE?

Well, that’s a million-dollar question, isn’t it? And I don’t have a perfect answer for it, either. But I will tell you what I used to do over the decades of voting.

If I didn’t know the person on the ballot, I would go by the following criteria:

  • ANYBODY but a Democrat or a Republican (because they all work for the same bosses)
  • A NEWCOMER rather than an INCUMBENT (because long tenure in elected offices breeds corruption)
  • A WOMAN rather than a MAN (because a woman is more likely to use love and compassion in her decisions; and because women had been prejudiced against in politics; lest we forget, they only won the right to vote on Aug 18, 1920; and because I have two daughters 🙂 )

That’s the way I have been voting, or not voting, more or less for decades.

Did I ever regret doing so? No. Not once.

But now, with the likes of Hillary running for president, I am ready for an amendment.

After seeing so many women get into politics only to acquire the ugliest of the “manly” qualities – aggression, greed, lying and cheating, subservience to money and power, egotism – and trying to outdo men in their quest for power, I say – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

The women the New World Order is fielding to lead us are leading us into a disaster as bad or worse than the generations of men who had preceded them. And this is all by design (see New World Order’s War on American Family & Social Order, Jan 2015):

The New World Order social agenda is:

* Defeminize the female, emasculate the male

* Destroy the American family by sending women into the work force

* Brainwash children to become obedient dolts and shopping automats as adults 

 * … then tax and rule the world

We don’t any more Margaret Thatcher’s, Hillary Clinton’s, Eleanor Roosevelt’s, Angela Merkel’s or Kathleen Kane’s to mention some than we need a hole in our head.

We don’t need women who are out to prove they have bigger cojones than the men. We need women who are nurturers, healers and caretakers of the world broken by the millennia of male-instigated warfare and power plays.

We also don’t need women who looked like that armored police warrior. We need women who look like that gal next to her whose power is not in the gun but in her heart.

So no more auto-feminine votes for me, unless I know and trust the woman on the ballot.

THE CASE OF KATHLEEN KANE

Top Law Enforcement Official in Pennsylvania Who Thought She Was Above the Law

Okay, so we know about Margaret, Eleanor, Hillary and Angela. But who the heck is Kathleen Kane?

Well, she is another one of these power-intoxicated women who thought she was above the law.  Until she got caught – today – Aug 16, 2016.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was forced to resign hours after she was found guilty of nine criminal charges, including two felony perjury counts.

Kane, who was elected in 2012, was accused of leaking information to the media about a 2009 grand jury probe as a way to get back at Frank Fina, a political rival and former state prosecutor.

Kane, 50, faces up to seven years in prison on each of the felony perjury charges. Under state law, she was required to resign by the day of her sentencing, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“It seemed we had somebody who felt she was above the law,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele told reporters outside the courtroom after the verdict was delivered. “This was about the defendant going before a grand jury in Montgomery County and lying to that grand jury. The evidence was overwhelming in that regard.”

ALTZAR: Can you think of another woman in government who thought she was above the law? If not, here’s a clue… That woman’s husband also lied under oath twice when he was President.
“Bill Clinton lied under oath in his civil case when he denied a sexual affair, a sexual relationship, or sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. 2. President Clinton lied under oath to the grand jury about his sexual relationship with Ms. Lewinsky.”
And this woman is now trying to lie and cheat her way to the highest office in the land, while he is basking in limelight again trying to help her do it.
Above the law? Some people seem to be. Let us hope not for long.
Check out this excerpt from the Truth in Media Jan 2, 2015 editorial… (http://wp.me/p3QU1S-LO).

New World Order’s War on American Family & Social Order

For millennia, mothers and grandmothers were the cornerstone of our social order. They nurtured the children and held the family together while men went off to wars, or to hunt, fish or work the land. They were their children’s first teachers. They held the moral compass for the whole family.

Now, what happens to a house when you knock out the cornerstones? It starts to creak and crack, right? Eventually, the whole thins collapses.

That’s what has been happening in America during the last half a century since the “women’s lib” movement started (in the early 1960s).  Divorce rates are soaring. Families are splitting up. The percentage of singles is increasing.

Nine years ago, this writer published a Truth in Media editorial “When Genders Collide…” (Dec 26, 2005). It was a sequel to my Aug 1996 Washington Times column “When Cultures Collide…” The latter predicted a disintegration of the United States along ethnic lines in the next half a century.  The former talked about a destruction of the American family brought about by “women’s lib” during the last half.

Husban2  Husban1

Above are some charts from that Dec 2005 editorial that reinforced the conclusion that the American family is being destroyed. And not just American. Everywhere where the New World Order dollars tread, death and destruction of traditional social orders follow.

Nor was this some sort of a spontaneous trend. It was financed by the shadowy figures behind the New World Order. Gloria Steinem, 80, founder of MS magazine and a leading feminist in the 1960s who co-founded the Women’s Media Center aloing with Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan, was forced to admit that her magazine and the women’s lib were financed in part by the CIA (see Gloria Steinem and the CIANew York Times, Feb 21, 1967).

In the 1960´s, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order (Rense)

Why Did New World Order “Elite” Finance “Women’s Lib?”

Now, why would the New World Order chieftains, like the Rockefellers, want to fund the “women’s lib” and destroy the American family?  Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 9.41.06 AM

Quoting his friend, Nick Rockefeller, a New World Order mover and shaker, Russo provides the answer: MONEY & CONTROL! What else is new in a world ruled by Greed, right?

“We could not tax half the population before ‘women’s lib’,” Rockefeller explained.

But money was only one reason. The other was even more sinister… power to control the people’s minds and deeds.

“Now we get the kids in school at an early age. We can indoctrinate the kids how to think. Which breaks up their family. The kids start looking at the State as the family.” (Nick Rockefeller)

George Orwell lives on (see 1984). Welcome to NWO Tyranny 303! (Communism was Tyranny 101, Fascism – Tyranny 202).

And to A Nation of Morons, as I put it in this Jan 2006 Washington Times column.

So to summarize…

New World Order social agenda:

* Defeminize the female, emasculate the male

* Destroy the American family by sending women into the work force

* Brainwash children to become obedient dolts and shopping automats as adults 

 * … then tax and rule the world

DALLAS BLOWBACK: GOVERNMENT-TRAINED KILLER TURNS ON POLICE

America at war with world

DALLAS BLOWBACK: GOVERNMENT-TRAINED KILLER TURNS ON POLICE

“When you play with fire, you get burned by fire.”

“All who draw the sword will die by the sword.”

On Thursday night in Dallas, Micah Johnson, a black Army veteran, did what the government trained him to do: KILL. He used his military skills to take out enemy combatants as he perceived them – five white DPD officers – before being killed himself by a robot bomb deployed by the Dallas police.

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 11.35.30 AM

“Violence begets violence.”

Fifteen years ago, the morning of 9/11, this is what I wrote in part:

“To stop anti-American terrorism, Washington must stop its own state terrorism.  Both brands of terrorism are despicable and inexcusable…. May God have mercy upon the souls of all innocent people who died today as “collateral damage” of the Clinton/Bush arrogant foreign policy.  The Washington-led New World Order has now come home to roost.  For, “all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”  (“Collateral Damage Hits Home” Truth in Media editorial published on 9/11/01)

But these warnings fell on deaf ears of the people who have usurped the U.S. government and are using our military might to wage war against the world (see the 5-part series of AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD – Sep-Nov 2015). In Part 3, I also commented about the domestic war the ruling “elite” are waging against the American people (see WAR ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, Nov 3, 2015).

What happened in Dallas on Thursday night is another chapter of that war. A blowback. A government-trained killed turned on the government and started killing the Dallas police. Who, in turn, used a “weapon of mass destruction” (robot bomb) to kill him, a U.S. Army veteran. It was the first time in the history of U.S. policing that a bomb robot was used to kill an American citizen.

And that should give all of us a pause before we start to judge both sides in the Dallas tragedy. Here’s an excerpt from a story in Motherboard (Using a Bomb Robot to Kill a Suspect Is an Unprecedented Shift in Policing):

Peter W. Singer, an expert in military technology and robot warfare at the New America Foundation, tweeted that this is the first known incident of a domestic police force using a robot to kill a suspect. Singer tweeted that in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, soldiers have strapped claymore mines to the $8,000 MARCbot using duct tape to turn them into jury-rigged killing devices. Singer says all indications are that the Dallas Police Department did something similar in this case—it improvised toturn a surveillance robot into a killing machine.

Improvised device or not, the concerns here mirror a debate that’s been going on for a few years now: Should law enforcement have access to armed drones, or, for that matter, weaponized robots? In 2013 Kentucky Senator Rand Paul staged a 13-hour filibuster that was focused entirely on concerns about the use of armed drones on US soil. Last year, North Dakota became the first state to legalize nonlethal, weaponized drones for its police officers.

“When domestic law enforcement officers can use force from a distance, it may become too easy for them to do so, and the inevitable result will be that these weapons are over-used,” Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst for the American Civil Liberties Union wrote in a blog post while North Dakota was considering that bill. “When officers are not physically present, their perception of a situation and their judgment about when to apply force is more likely to be flawed, non-targets are more likely to be injured, and excessive amounts of force are more likely to be applied.”

Stanley also noted that drones and other remote weapons would “increase the militarization of the police.”

The ability for police to remotely kill suspects raises due process concerns. If a shooter is holed up and alone, can they be qualified as an imminent threat to life? Are there clear protocols about when a robot can be used to engage a suspect versus when a human needs to engage him or her? When can the use of lethal force be administered remotely?”

Good questions. The kind of questions our government officials should have been asking. Instead, our pathetic president and the pretender to the throne (Hillary) are again harping for gun control. Never mind that statistics prove that there is absolutely no relationship between gun ownership and the number of murders in the U.S. (see the chart).

homicide_51yr

Their goal is evidently to disarm the nation so they could shoot us like ducks at will.  Or blow us up with a “weapon of mass destruction” as the Dallas police did on Thursday night.

MESSAGES WRITTEN IN BLOOD

Micah Johnson, a black Army veteran, who was apparently wounded in a shootout with police, wrote the letters “RB” and other markings in his own blood. The investigators are trying to decipher their meaning by looking through evidence from Johnson’s suburban Dallas home. This undated photo posted on Facebook on April 30, 2016, shows Micah Johnson, who was a suspect in the sniper slayings of five law enforcement officers in Dallas Thursday night, July 7, 2016, during a protest over two recent fatal police shootings of black men. An Army veteran, Johnson tried to take refuge in a parking garage and exchanged gunfire with police, who later killed him with a robot-delivered bomb, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. (Facebook via AP)

Whatever they find, or think they have found, will be of little consequence. The credibility of the U.S. police is at an all-time low. The only way to start to regain it is to renounce violence, and abandon the use of the “weapons of mass destruction,” like that robot bomb.

And a global scale, the only to win the “war on terror” is for the U.S. government to stop acting as the world’s biggest terrorist, and bring our troops back home. Which is the same message I broadcast to the world the morning of 9/11.

Fifteen years later, we have ample additional evidence of the futility of violence. As I said to Elizabeth on Thursday night, paraphrasing Mahatma Gandhi, “if we keep up the eye-for-an-eye policy, the whole world will go blind.”

POLICE KILLINGS SOAR IN RECENT YEARS AS OFFICER FATALITIES DECLINE

Meanwhile, if you ignore the partisan rhetoric and let the facts speak for themselves, the first two charts tell the real story about what’s going on in our country.

Considering the widespread militarization of the police, no wonder the police killings are going through the roof as the police fatalities are declining.

That’s something this writer earned about in Dec 2014 – see OBAMA REFUSES TO REVERSE MILITARIZATION OF POLICE IN AMERICA, DEC 2, 2014 – https://truthinmediablog.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/on-police-militarization-in-america/

What happened in Dallas on Thursday night was an escalation of an already alarming trend – a pushback against the police killings across the country.

As I said to Elizabeth on Thursday night, paraphrasing Mahatma Gandhi, “if we keep up the eye-for-an-eye policy, the whole world will go blind.”

Meanwhile, police killings soar in recent years, as officer fatalities decline

UPDATE JULY 18, 2016

BATON ROUGE BLOWBACK II: GOVERNMENT-TRAINED KILLER TURNS ON POLICE

Or Did He? Some Facts in Official Stories Don’t Add Up

“On Sunday morning in Baton Rouge, Gavin Long, a black U.S. Marine veteran, did what the government trained him to do: KILL. He used his military skills to take out enemy combatants as he perceived them – five white police officers – before being killed himself by Baton Rouge police – on his 29th birthday.”

The preceding was the lead to the Truth in Media editorial “DALLAS BLOWBACK: GOVERNMENT-TRAINED KILLER TURNS ON POLICE” (http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1vb). I only changed the names, places and the dates. What happened in Baton Rouge on Sunday morning was a virtual replay of an assault on Dallas police on Thursday a week earlier. Blowback II.

That’s at least what one would have to conclude reading our government and lamestream media dispatches. They are all painting the alleged killer, Gavin Long, as an anti-police vigilante. And it all sounds quite plausible. The man had virtually incriminated himself by posting incendiaries messages and videos on the internet.

SHOOTING HAD STARTED BEFORE THE POLICE ARRIVED

Except for one thing: The shooting had already started BEFORE the police arrived, according to eyewitnesses quoted by London’s Daily Mirror.

“This was not a come at police shooting,” the witness said. “There were men out here shooting at each other before police ever got here.” (see Daily Mirror UK – https://is.gd/nwcqwW).

Check out also this quote from a New Orleans newspaper:

“A gun battle between citizens in Baton Rouge was underway Sunday morning (July 17) before police officers arrived on the scene near Airline and Old Hammond highways, a witness told WAFB-TV. Brady Vancel, who was working in the area, told the television station that he heard multiple gunshots before police arrived on the scene.

After hearing the shots, Vancel said he saw one citizen lying on the ground and a second one carrying an assault rifle before he sought refuge in a home nearby. He then hear more gunshot, apparently after police arrived on the scene.” (seeThe Times-Picayune – https://is.gd/MX92u9).

So the police were RESPONDING to a “shots fired” call. They were not necessarily the target, as in Dallas.

No mention of that important fact in any of the major media reports. Why not? Because the government-media spin doctors have decided to act as a judge and a jury and condemn the only dead alleged assailant as a culprit?

The truth is sometimes murky. Especially when deliberately obfuscated by those in government who are driving the case for gun control. So keep your eyes and ears and minds open. And don’t believe everything you see in print until your heart tells you so.

MILITARIZATION OF POLICE

But seeing is believing, some say. And what you see in the picture below is yet another proof of tremendous militarization of police in this country.

Look at the heavily armed police carrying assault rifles and shotguns. Like the mafia. Only in uniform. Except this is not a movie. This is a scene from a Baton Rouge street on Sunday July 17, 2016.

NWO SELLING FEAR TO BUY SUBSERVIENCE

SAN BERNARDINO: THE LATEST “FALSE FLAG” OPERATION

When I wrote the editorial “Selling Feat to Buy Subservience” in May of this year, I did not expect it to be just the Part 1 of an extended series (see MAFIA TACTICS LEAD TO NEW RESTRICTIVE LAWS IN CANADA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA… LIKE THE PATRIOT ACT IN THE U.S., May 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-VB).

I should have known better. For, a plethora of false flag attacks had both preceded it and followed it.

false-flag-terrorism-can-FRA-Aus-header

Ukraine, Canada, Australia, France, France again, Turkey, Belgium, Britain and now the USA. Again. Gotta keep those sheep in a permanent state of fear.

Sheeple

false-flagActually, the predictability and the increased frequency of these false flag attacks smacks of DESPERATION by the New World Order’s self-styled “elite.” It is they who are living in a state of fear… the fear that the day of reckoning may be coming soon for dall these war criminals who are ready to trade human lives and the well-being of this planet for short-term personal gains.

They only have one play, one strategy and one goal. Which is why their “false flags” are so easy to decipher.

  • The play is – invent a crisis to be used as an excuse for military or police intervention.
  • The strategy is – PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE. Which is something this writer published, and the Truth in Media readers had a chance to see over 20 years ago.
  • The goal is – dictatorship and control of the masses, the world’s sheeple.

What happened in San Bernardino a week ago was just the latest case in point…

SAN BERNARDINO ATTACK: ANOTHER “FALSE FLAG” OPERATION, SAY SEVERAL EYEWITNESSES

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.42.06 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.40.45 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 2.40.26 PM

By now, most of us have seen various bits and pieces of information that suggested that the San Bernardino shooting was a staged “false flag” attack. And that the two alleged Muslim “terrorists” were actually found handcuffed and shot face down in a truck.

Here’s a 9-minute video which is worth perusing because it offers not just opinions but testimonies of several eyewitnesses who claim that the actual shooters were three tall men in military garbs who made their getaway in a black SUV right after the incident.

The video is a bit odd in that it starts out showing the footage by the Russian intelligence services of alleged illicit trade that Turkey has been facilitating with ISIS. I almost stopped watching the video at that point.

Don’t. Because the only reason that segment is that because the Russian clips were released the same day as San Bernardino. And the author is suggesting that the U.S. attack was staged in part to divert the media attention from the Russia-Turkey conflict.

Well, that’s a long shot, in my opinion. But what follows after the first minute of the video is all San Bernardino-related footage. Which is worthwhile seeing.

Here’s are the opening paragraphs from that May piece…

MAFIA TACTICS LEAD TO NEW RESTRICTIVE LAWS IN CANADA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA… LIKE THE PATRIOT ACT IN THE U.S.

To spread fear in the neighborhood, they make good on their threats. Some shops are set on fire. mafia_ii_physx_explosionSoon, others quickly fall into line and start paying up.

That’s how the Mafiosi got themselves a new security business. They got rich. They became powerful, bribing the police and some judges and politicians.

Then they decided to buy themselves respectability. They sent their children to schools and colleges. Some became lawyers, lawmakers, “respectable” businessmen…

They all had one thing in common: THEY TRADED ON FEAR.

FALSE FLAG ATTACKS: PRELUDE TO DRACONIAN LAWS

By now, most enlightened Americans know that 9/11 was a false flag attack which our Perpetual War USWashington mafia used as justification for subsequent draconian laws, wars and creations of new institutions, like Homeland Security. All this has led to a general militarization and criminalization of our society in the last decade and a half, and a shredding of our constitutional rights and freedoms by use of the Patriot Act and other means. America is now closer to becoming a police state than ever before in its 239-year history.

Now, it’s other countries’ turn to copy our bad example. The New World Order leaders have been trying to create a global state of fear as a prelude to police states among our allies. Britain first, then Canada, Australia, France… and again Britain.

And like the good little ducks falling into line, the politicians in those heretofore supposedly free and democratic societies have been aligning themselves with the Washington NWO mafia, and enacting laws that increase government’s powers and diminish the rights and freedoms of their citizens.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo (2nd L), European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Union President Donald Tusk, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Jordan's Queen Rania and her husband King Abdullah II and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu take part in a Unity rally “Marche Republicaine” on January 11, 2015 in Paris in tribute to the 17 victims of the three-day killing spree. The killings began on January 7 with an assault on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris that saw two brothers massacre 12 people including some of the country's best-known cartoonists and the storming of a Kosher supermarket on the eastern fringes of the capital which killed 4 local residents.

CANADA: Bill C-51 – From Fear to Law

Take Canada, for example. In this dramatic opening paragraph to the new Bill C-51, the editors of InsaneMedia examine Canada’s new anti-terror legislation that was recently passed by Canada’s Members of Parliament.

Are you a Canadian citizen? Does the country feel any different today? The sun still came up. You went to work, the kids went to school and the bills still need to be paid. In all the ways that matter to most people Canada will feel little different today than it did yesterday.

Make no mistake though, this is no longer the country our grandfathers fought and died for.

May 6, 2015. Remember that date. Etch it into your brain so if your children ever ask when it was that Canada officially became a pawn in the contrived global war on terror you’ll be able to tell them. May 6, 2015, the day MPs (in the face of nation-wide protests and letter writing campaigns) voted 183 – 96 in favour of enacting the most draconian set of laws to ever disgrace our once proud nation. A vote that was taken without comment or even the participation of Daniel Therrien the government’s own privacy watchdog. 

– See more at: http://www.insanemedia.net/bill-c-51-from-fear-to-law/5501#sthash.d1T0rEZT.dpuf

The article then goes on to analyze the frightening implications

“One of the more disturbing aspects of C-51 was the creation of what would amount to a secret police force. Canada’s Security and Intelligence Services (CSIS) was to be given the power to not only surveil and investigate suspects/threats in virtual secrecy, as they do now, but was also to be given the power to “disrupt” potential threats and to make arrests. All under the same umbrella of secrecy.” 

Of course, the precursor and the justification for all this came from a false flag attack on Oct 22 in Ottawa (see SYDNEY, OTTAWA: BEWARE FALSE FLAG “TERRORISM”, Dec 14, 2014).

AUSTRALIA

Ditto in Australia, Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 6.40.45 PMwhere prime minister Tony Abbott announced a toughening of that country’s anti-terrorist laws on Feb 23 (see Australia to strengthen laws to combat terror – CNN.com).

Australia will toughen its citizenship laws as part of the government’s new counter-terrorism strategy, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced in a national security address on Feb 23.

The new measures include suspending and revoking citizenship for dual nationals involved in terrorism, and also stripping certain privilege.

FRANCE

And then there is France. Already a country with some of the toughest anti-terrorist laws in Europe, the French government wasted no time exploiting its own possible false flag operation at Charlie Hebdo in early January to introduce new even tougher anti-terrorist laws (also see CHARLIE HEBDO’S BLOOD MONEY: PROFITING FROM MURDERS, TERRORISM, Jan 14).

Charlie Hebdo header

The proposed law, introduced in Parliament in March, would allow the government to monitor emails and phone calls of suspected terrorists and their contacts, without seeking authorization from a judge. Telecommunications and internet companies would be forced to automatically filter vast amounts of metadata to flag suspicious patterns, and would have to make that data freely available to intelligence services. Agents would also be able to plant cameras and bugs in the homes of suspected terrorists, as well as keyloggers to track their online behavior.

Following the shooting, the Paris Administrative Tribunal upheld a ban on an anti-Islamist rally. French police have arrested 54 people for verbally supporting or threatening terrorist acts in the wake of the terrorist attacks, including four minors and French comedian Dieudonne who is known for his anti-Semitic views. The French Justice Ministry also called on prosecutors tocrack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and support of terrorism.

BRITAIN

As for the US government, which has partnered closely with Washington in breaking of both the US and British laws (see UK COURT DECLARES UK-US MASS SPYING ILLEGAL, FEB 6, 2015), the Brits even beat the French to the punch in exploiting the Charlie Hebdo attack. Here’s an excerpt from the British Jurist (Fbe 13):

The UK on Friday (Feb 13) enacted anti-terror legislation to help combat terrorism by curbing the number of British citizens joining Islamic State (IS) and other militant groups in Iraq and Syria. The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act [HL Bill 75, PDF] expands the current anti-terror law and includes provisions allowing [WSJ report] the UK to stop a citizen’s re-entry into the country when he or she is suspected of aiding terrorist groups and requiring internet providers to maintain communication data of UK citizens to allow the police to find individuals who may be using certain devices. Civil rights groups have criticized the re-entry provision, stating that it could violate international law. Internet providers have similarly objected to the data-maintaining provision, asserting that this imposes costs onto the companies and no benefits are provided in return.

theresa mayHome Secretary Theresa May [left] explained that the UK undertook a necessary measure in enacting the legislation:

“This important legislation will disrupt the ability of people to travel abroad to fight and then return, enhance our ability to monitor and control the actions of those who pose a threat, and combat the underlying ideology that feeds, supports and sanctions terrorism.” The legislation will take effect next week.

The UK enacted the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act in response to last month’s deadly shootings [Reuters report] by French Islamists. [THE JURIST]

CONCLUSION: RESTORE OUR RIGHTS, REPEAL “PATRIOT ACT”

So there you have it, Washington’s NWO puppets have each staged and exploited their own versions of 9/11 and Patriot Act in the last seven months. Clearly, it is a well planned and coordinate attack on human rights and liberties by the New World Order governments, and step toward a global police state.

What were they thinking? That we would not notice it?  Or that we would, and would not care? Or that we would, and they didn’t care?

Either way, silence is acquiescence. If we remain mum about these travesties of justice, we can only expect more of the same. Or worse.

Luckily, the Section 215 of the Patriot Act which deals with surveillance is due to expire on June 1. Both the British and the U.S. courts have already ruled that these practices are illegal (see GCHQ and NSA mass surveillance during the last seven years was unlawful, Feb 6, and NOW U.S. COURT ALSO RULES NSA MASS SPYING ILLEGAL, May 9).

Let’s keep up the pressure on our Representatives and let them know that we want NO MORE SPYING! And that we want ALL of our constitutional rights restored, and the Patriot Act repealed. After all, it was based on the 9/11 deception, and thus in and of itself it is unlawful.

US CONGRESS SET TO VOTE ON BILL BANNING NSA MASS PHONE COLLECTION [Guardian]

US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVES THE BILL TO END NSA’S MASS DATA COLLECTION
 
Yeah! One Down, One to Go… (US Senate)
 
WASHINGTON, May 13 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a bill that would end spy agencies’ bulk collections of Americans’ telephone data, setting up a potential showdown with the U.S. Senate over the program that expires on June 1. 
 
As voting continued, the House overwhelmingly backed the USA Freedom Act (by a 338-88 vote), which would end the bulk collection program and instead give intelligence agencies access to telephone data and other records only when a court finds there is reasonable suspicion about a link to international terrorism.
 
The bill’s fate is much less certain in the Senate, where many key lawmakers would rather reauthorize the existing bulk data collection program than approve the Freedom Act.

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE

In short, like Markale (Feb 1994, Sarajevo), 9/11, MH-17 (July 2014, Ukraine), Ottawa (Oct 2014), etc… today’s Sydney siege looks and feels like another New World Order “false flag” incident. Same patterns, same “MO,” same propaganda, same purpose.

Its purpose was to stoke the fires of war and shore up their support for the newly-minted “war on ISIS.” Just as the 9/11 did in the US against Al Qaeda. But the main goal is to scare the local population in giving up what little of their rights and liberties remain. So that the New World Order would-be masters can lord over them unobstructed.

In short, Sydney was another chapter of the… NWO flag tim99-12

Perpetual War for Perpetual Commerce

That’s the New World Order motto. The Truth in Media first discerned it 20 years ago during the war in Bosnia.

We saw it reactivated in Ukraine this year (see PROOF OF “DRANG NACH OSTEN” THEORY: NATO TO EXPAND TO FORMER SOVIET STATES, SUSPEND COOPERATION WITH RUSSIA, Apr 1, 2014).

What happened in Sydney today is merely the latest chapter in this macabre tale of global deception and conquest. The New World Order antics are becoming so transparent that they are almost predictable.

Where will the next strike hit? My top candidates are Germany, Netherlands, Spain and New Zealand… i.e., major countries that have not yet signed up for the war on ISIS.

Turkish Troops and Tanks Cross Iraqi Border Prompting Sharp Rebuke From Iraqi Prime Minister, Yet They Shot Down Russian Jet for an Alleged 15 Second Intrusion into Turkey

Turkish incursion into Iraq

CVNILEsWUAAR3MrHas Erdogan (Turkey’s  president) lost his mind? Or is he being used as Washington’s “mad dog” to provoke Russia into a military confrontation?

Either way, it’s not working.  Russian president Putin is not taking the bait.

Instead of engaging in the military “saber rattling,” as he called Turkish/NATO bravado during his Dec 3 state of the union speech in Moscow, Russia is applying economic sanctions on Turkey that are far more painful for those driven by Greed. Like the westernized societies, including Turkey. Because they are hurting Erdogan’s and his backers pocketbooks (see PUTIN: TURKEY WILL REGRET SHOOTING DOWN SU-24 JET, Dec 3).

Teddy Roosevelt Putin Big Stick cartoon[ Speak softly but carry a big stick

PREMEDITATED MURDER?

Meanwhile, the truth about the Turkey’s Nov 24 shootdown of the Russian SU-24 jet is beginning to trickle out, as Truth invariable does, sooner or later. Right from the start, we suspected that the whole incident was a well planned provocation.

Why?

Well, past experiences in such matters as a war correspondent in the Balkans during the 1990s, for one. Also, because the Turkish TV crews were “miraculously” in place at the right time to film the shootdown.

SU 24 2015-11-24 at 11.42.43 AM“As a former war correspondent, I can tell you – it is very difficult, nigh impossible – to be at the right place and the right time in a war zone, and have the camera ready and pointing in the right direction,” the Truth in Media editor wrote on Nov 24 (“AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD, PART VI: HOW TO START WW III?,” NOV 24, 2015).

Well, now more facts are emerging that seem to support the notion that the shootdown was a premeditated murder and a deliberate provocation to Russia.

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 4.26.40 PMWikiLeaks revealed today in a tweet that a Turkish ‘deep throat’ revealed six weeks ago Erdogan’s plan for a Russian jet shootdown? https://archive.is/mZTQ3#selection-367.0-385.0 … #Syria #ISIS and https://twitter.com/UyusukKursun/status/673216243290218496).

Why?

“Erdogan is attempting to mobilise his voters by a threat of war. Turks are patriotic chaps, they were brought up on worshiping their WWI hero General Kemal Ataturk. For them (like for many nations), a threat of war is a clarion call for unity and support of government. For this reason he plans to pull Turkey to the brink of war with Russia. “

A page right out of the “Wag the Dog” film scenario, it seems.

The so-called Turkish “Deep Throat”, Fuat Avni, an anonymous knowledgeable insider who sends his twits under https://twitter.com/fuatavni_f has a strong record of disclosing noxious plans of the government.

Now (Oct 12, 2015) he claimed Erdogan has given orders to shoot down Russian planes operating in Syria while claiming they have intruded into Turkish airspace (see https://archive.is/mZTQ3#selection-507.0-507.330).

Which is exactly what happened on Nov 24, six weeks later!

It gets worse…

Iraq Orders Turkey to ‘Immediately’ Withdraw Troops Sent across Border

Today, Dec 5, Turkish media reported that about 150 Turkish soldiers backed by 20 to 25 tanks had been sent by road to the Bashiqa area north-east of Mosul, the city that is Islamic State’s main hub in Iraq.

A border violation? No kidding.

About 150 troops and two dozen tanks and artillery pushing their way 150 km (over 90 miles) into a sovereign country. That’s quite a bit more blatant a “border violation” than was even the 15 second alleged intrusion by the Russian jet on Nov 24, which Russia has denied it ever took place.

Turkish incursion into Iraq

Iraq has told Turkey to “immediately” withdraw forces, including tanks and artillery, it has deployed in the country’s north without Baghdad’s consent, the office of the prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, said on Saturday.

“The Iraqi authorities call on Turkey to … immediately withdraw from Iraqi territory,” the statement said.

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 6.05.00 PM“We have confirmation that Turkish forces, numbering about one armoured regiment with a number of tanks and artillery, entered Iraqi territory … allegedly to train Iraqi groups, without a request or authorisation from Iraqi federal authorities,” it said.

The deployment “is considered a serious violation of Iraqi sovereignty”, it added.

Again, no kidding! Sending troops and armor 90 miles deep into Iraq?

ALTZAR: So if Iraq, for example, were to take a cue from Turkey about its shootdown of the Russian over an alleged 15 second border violation, they should ask Obama to wipe out the entire Turkish column.

Fat chance, of course. Because my money is that Erdogan IS actually Obama’s mad dog on a not so short a leash,

BOTTOM LINE: NEW RUSSIAN NAVAL BASE ON THE MEDITERRANEAN, COUNTERPOINT TO U.S. BASE IN KOSOVO

As for the bottom-line, the Russians are likely to end with a fully developed naval, air and ground base in Latakia on the Mediterranean shore, its answer to the vast US base in Kosovo and a solution to the limitations of the Bosporus. It will be a new Sevastopol, the greatest Russian enterprise for a century. Putingrad, anyone?

Bottom Line? Russian May End Up with New Naval Base in the Mediterranean, Countering the Huge U.S. Base in Kosovo

 

Unsurprisingly, Obama and NATO backed Turkey.

Excerpt from “AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD, PART VI: HOW TO START WW III?,” Nov 24, 2015

HOW COME TURKISH MEDIA WERE IN POSITION READY TO FILM THE DOWNING OF RUSSIAN JET?

I did. As a former war correspondent, I can tell you – it is very difficult, nigh impossible – to be at the right place and the right time in a war zone, and have the camera ready and pointing in the right direction.

For example, Lindsey Hilsum, Channel 4 News International Editor, asked this morning in her Tweet: 

How come a Turkish TV crew was in the right place, filming in the right direction as Russian plane shot down? Lucky? Or tipped off?”

To which I replied:

“Good question. Reminded me of CNN crews being ready to film massacres in Sarajevo in 1992-1993 for which Serbs were blamed.”

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 4.18.07 PM

Whereupon, her Tweet disappeared. And someone (she?) blocked my access to her Tweets (see above message). However, the London Telegraph and the London Guardian had both preserved Hilsum’s original tweet in its own report. So here it is…

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 4.28.20 PM

Worse, Hilsum made no mention of her tweeted questions and suspicions about the Turkish media being tipped off in her published Channel 4 story.

Was she threatened?  If so, by whom?

It doesn’t matter. After all, Hilsum is an international media editor, not just an ordinary reporter. So she should have known better than to change her story to fit NATO’s political scenario.

In any event, here we have proof positive about how the “lamestream” media manipulate the news they report. And why they should not be trusted.

What will Russia do? 

Until now, Putin has been rather tolerant of western betrayals and duplicity.  Unlike some of the western leaders who are prone to grandstanding bravados which only exacerbate tensions, Putin is not known for knee jerk reactions and idle threats. 

The Feb 2014 coup d’etat in Ukraine was a case in point. The downing of the MH17 Malaysian airlines jet over Ukraine was another. The oil war of 2014 was also intended to hurt Russia economically (see OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?, DEC 7, 2014).  All the while, Putin refused to be drawn into retaliatory military action.

Obama Putin in TurkeyBut now, the latest attack on Russia caused deadly casualties. And it happened right after Putin and Obama had agreed on coordinating their military actions against ISIS (on Nov 15). Might this be the straw that broke the camel’s back?  

Putin’s today’s warning to Turkey, and therefore to NATO – that there will be “significant consequences” – is that much more significant. And rather ominous. 

Frankly, with or without NATO’s and Obama’s backing, I would not want to be in Erdogan’s shoes right now. Because it will be the Turks, not the Americans, French or Germans, who will be doing the dying if Russia retaliates. 

Unless, of course, the erstwhile “peacenik” Obama is hell bent for leather to start World War III.  In which case all bets are off.

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED…

A Turkish F-16 fighter jet, flying near Turkey’s border with Syria, shot down a Russian Su-24 military jet. It is not clear whether the Russian plane had entered Turkish territory. Turkey said that it did. The Russians deny it, and are accusing Turkey’s jet of crossing into Syria in order to shoot down the Russian SU-24 fighter jet. 

Both sides have presented maps to back up their claims. The SU-24 ultimately fell to the ground well inside the Syrian border. Which gives more credence to the Russian version of the story.

As the SU-24 jet was spiraling down, the two pilots ejected from the plane. The Russian Defense Ministry has said that one pilot and a Russian marine who had been on the rescue helicopter were killed on the ground.

“Dead” Man Talking and Telling the Truth about Turkish Backstabbing

It is always fascinating how predictable the western media whores and their government sponsors are.

What does a person do who starts losing a debate?

He tried to change the subject.

la-fg-russia-turkey-20151125-001
Demonstrators in front of the Turkish embassy in Moscow (Nov 25, 2015)

Well, that’s exactly what’s happening in the American media on this Thanksgiving Eve morning. Only yesterday, all major lamestream media were trumpeting Turkey’s and NATO’s claim that Russian jet was shot down before it entered the Turkish air space.

Today, nearly nada. I had to dig through Golden State WarriorsGeorge OsborneBlack FridayThanksgivingFrançois HollandePope FrancisChicago Police DepartmentCostco and Refugees stories to get to the update on the Russia-Turkey situation.

Why?

Because things evidently did not quite as planned for the New World Order stooges who provoked this deadly incident. Thanks to the heroics of the Syrian special forces, one of the two Russian pilots was rescued right under the noses of their terrorist enemies. And now he is talking to the media, telling everyone the truth of what happened.

The rescued pilot, Capt. Konstantin Murakthin, told Rossiya-1 television that the warplane’s two-man crew had no warning of the Turkish attack and denied they had strayed into Turkish airspace “even for one second.”

“The entire mission was in my full personal control until the explosion,” Murakhtin said from Russia’s Hemeimeem air base near Latakia where he was recuperating after the stealth, 12-hour rescue operation that plucked him from rebel-held territory (see http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34925229).

russian pilot 2015-11-25 at 9.06.03 AM

The navigator vowed to rejoin the air campaign against the anti-Assad forces that Moscow has labeled terrorists.

“I have a debt to pay off on the part of my commander,” Murakhtin said of the SU-24 pilot, Lt. Col. Oleg Peshkov, who was shot dead by rebels as he parachuted from the stricken warplane early Tuesday.

Syrian special forces had staged a dramatic overnight rescue of one of the two Russian pilots who ejected from the SU-24 after it was struck by an air-to-air missile. Both Russian airman had been reported dead by Syrian rebel forces controlling the border area where the plane was shot down.

Which was obviously a false claim, as we now see. The “dead” man is now speaking and helping expose the Turkey-NATO failed ploy to the world.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 8.42.10 AM.PNG

He is not alone. Just as the Truth in Media reported yesterday, today, the Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists in Moscow on Wednesday that the Turkish action in shooting down the jet had all the hallmarks of “a planned provocation.”

As a result, Russia has now ordered the deployment of sophisticated S400 ground-to-air missiles in Syria. The missiles have a range of 250 kilometers (155 miles), according to the missilethreat.com website. The Turkish border is less than 30 miles away.

The Kremlin also said it was moving the missile-carrying cruiser Moskva closer to the Syrian government-controlled Latakia area, where Tuesday’s deadly confrontation occurred, to provide better protection of Russian aircraft.

So Russia is speaking softly but carrying a big stick, to borrow the Teddy Roosevelt phrase.

The strengthening of Russian air defenses in the region further raises the stakes for the multinational coalition trying to contain the Islamic State extremists who have proclaimed a “caliphate” in the vast Syrian and Iraqi territory they control. If Russia were to shoot down a Turkish plane, or one from any other NATO member state, the Western military alliance would be obliged to respond to the attack.

Speaking ahead of his meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan in Sochi (Nov 24), the Russian leader said:

“This event is beyond the normal framework of fighting against terrorism. Of course our military is doing heroic work against terrorism… But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists. I can’t describe it in any other way. 

Our aircraft was downed over the territory of Syria, using air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16. It fell on the Syrian territory 4km from Turkey.

Neither our pilots nor our jet threatened the territory of Turkey. This is obvious. They are fighting terrorists in the northern areas around Latakia, where militants are located, mainly people who originated in Russia, and they were pursuing their direct duty, to make sure these people do not return to Russia. These are people who are clearly international terrorists.

Taking into account that we signed an agreement on deconflicting with the US, and as we know Turkey was among the ones that has joined the US coalition. 

Since ISIS has such huge resources of hundreds of millions and billions of dollars coming from illicit oil sales, and they are protected by the armed forces of other states, then it’s clear why they are so brazen, why they are killing people, why they are carrying out terrorist attacks throughout the world including in the heart of Europe.

We will analyse everything, and today’s tragic event will have significant consequences, including for Russia-Turkish relations. We have always treated Turkey as a friendly state. I don’t know who was interested in what happened today, certainly not us. And instead of immediately getting in contact with us, as far as we know, the Turkish side immediately turned to their partners from Nato to discuss this incident, as if we shot down their plane and not they ours.

There has been abundance of images today surrounding the downed Russian jet, which has generated suspicions among some.”

Can some of my German-speaking friends help me finish the sentence?

Unterstützung? (Support) Dankbarheit? (Gratitude) Liebe? (Love)….

shutterstock-160092761And yet, whether you are aware of it or not, this is indeed the first day of newly won freedom in this country us-ostrich-head-in-sand– freedom from the NSA electronic surveillance.

It’s a small victory, but still a victory for Edward Snowden and 320 million Americans, whether our heads are buried in sand or gazing at stars.

What’s this about?

Well, this morning, the Justice Department issued a terse statement:

Final temporary reauthorization of the Section 215 bulk telephony metadata data program in the US expires.

And with that, it was all over. No more NSA spying on Americans. Isn’t that something worth cheering and celebrating?

What that means is that from this day forward – Saturday, Nov 28, 2015 – we can all breathe a collective sight of relief. Because the National Security Agency will no longer be able to directly hold information about the phone calls of millions of US citizens.

At least not legally. Which is something. From now on, they will have to use solely their stooges in other countries to do it. Still… it’s progress.

The USA Freedom Act, passed in late May, allowed the NSA a 180-day transition period to sort out arrangements. That period expired today.

It is modest change but it is at least a change, raising public awareness of the scale of government surveillance and opening the way for privacy campaigners to chip away in hopes of further reforms. And it is a victory for Edward Snowden who sacrificed his freedom so we could regain ours.

FIRST FREEDOM DAY IN AMERICA

It is utterly poignant that the original Freedom Day in America was declared by President Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago.

national-fredomdayFebruary 1, 1865 – when Abraham Lincoln, who was the nation’s president at the time, signed a joint resolution that proposed the 13th amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment was made to outlaw slavery and was ratified on December 18, 1865.

Since that time, through coercion, corruption and voter apathy, we had squandered this precious gift our forefathers had given us. And now, thanks to one man, Edward Snowden, who sacrificed his freedom so we could regain ours, there is a new dawn rising over America. Let us not permit it to fade away…

AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD, PART VI: HOW TO START WW III?

TURKEY SHOOTS DOWN RUSSIAN JET

Putin warns Turkey of “significant consequences”

Unsurprisingly, Obama and NATO backed Turkey.

“Since ISIS has such huge resources of hundreds of millions and billions of dollars coming from illicit oil sales, and they are protected by the armed forces of other states, then it’s clear why they are so brazen, why they are killing people, why they are carrying out terrorist attacks throughout the world including in the heart of Europe,” Putin said today.

Do they want to make NATO serve ISIS? … We hope that the international community will find the strength to come together and fight against the common evil.

Except if the “common evil” is actually a creation by that same “international community.”

G20 Turkey

putin - russia in TurkeyOnly 9 days ago, speaking after a G20 meeting in Turkey (of all places!?), Putin stole the show with a startling revelation after the G20 Summit that Russia had shared intelligence with other G20 countries, including satellite and aerial images, that ISIS are being funded by 40 nations, including some G20 countries (see https://youtu.be/sihKTN4QLfA [VIDEO]).

Was today’s attack on the Russian jet a retaliation for Putin outing the New World Order leader’s duplicity?

After all, it sure seemed like a premeditated and well-planned operation by NATO, with Turkey pulling the trigger.  And it bore the same hallmarks of deception this writer had witnessed as a war correspondent in the Balkans during the 1990s.

This was not lost even on some of the western media editors. If you watched the video released by Turkey today, did you ever wonder…

HOW COME TURKISH MEDIA WERE IN POSITION READY TO FILM THE DOWNING OF RUSSIAN JET?

I did. As a former war correspondent, I can tell you – it is very difficult, nigh impossible – to be at the right place and the right time in a war zone, and have the camera ready and pointing in the right direction.

For example, Lindsey Hilsum, Channel 4 News International Editor, asked this morning in her Tweet: 

How come a Turkish TV crew was in the right place, filming in the right direction as Russian plane shot down? Lucky? Or tipped off?”

To which I replied:

“Good question. Reminded me of CNN crews being ready to film massacres in Sarajevo in 1992-1993 for which Serbs were blamed.”

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 4.18.07 PM

Whereupon, her Tweet disappeared. And someone (she?) blocked my access to her Tweets (see above message). However, the London Telegraph and the London Guardian had both preserved Hilsum’s original tweet in its own report. So here it is…

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 4.28.20 PM

Worse, Hilsum made no mention of her tweeted questions and suspicions about the Turkish media being tipped off in her published Channel 4 story.

Was she threatened?  If so, by whom?

It doesn’t matter. After all, Hilsum is an international media editor, not just an ordinary reporter. So she should have known better than to change her story to fit NATO’s political scenario.

In any event, here we have proof positive about how the “lamestream” media manipulate the news they report. And why they should not be trusted.

What will Russia do? 

Until now, Putin has been rather tolerant of western betrayals and duplicity.  Unlike some of the western leaders who are prone to grandstanding bravados which only exacerbate tensions, Putin is not known for knee jerk reactions and idle threats. 

The Feb 2014 coup d’etat in Ukraine was a case in point. The downing of the MH17 Malaysian airlines jet over Ukraine was another. The oil war of 2014 was also intended to hurt Russia economically (see OIL WAR 2014: PRELUDE TO SHOOTING WAR?, DEC 7, 2014).  All the while, Putin refused to be drawn into retaliatory military action.

Obama Putin in TurkeyBut now, the latest attack on Russia caused deadly casualties. And it happened right after Putin and Obama had agreed on coordinating their military actions against ISIS (on Nov 15). Might this be the straw that broke the camel’s back?  

Putin’s today’s warning to Turkey, and therefore to NATO – that there will be “significant consequences” – is that much more significant. And rather ominous. 

Frankly, with or without NATO’s and Obama’s backing, I would not want to be in Erdogan’s shoes right now. Because it will be the Turks, not the Americans, French or Germans, who will be doing the dying if Russia retaliates. 

Unless, of course, the erstwhile “peacenik” Obama is hell bent for leather to start World War III.  In which case all bets are off.

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED…

SU 24 shoot down SU 24 2015-11-24 at 11.42.43 AM Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 11.51.37 AM

A Turkish F-16 fighter jet, flying near Turkey’s border with Syria, shot down a Russian Su-24 military jet. It is not clear whether the Russian plane had entered Turkish territory. Turkey said that it did. The Russians deny it, and are accusing Turkey’s jet of crossing into Syria in order to shoot down the Russian SU-24 fighter jet. 

Both sides have presented maps to back up their claims. The SU-24 ultimately fell to the ground well inside the Syrian border. Which gives more credence to the Russian version of the story.

As the SU-24 jet was spiraling down, the two pilots ejected from the plane. The Russian Defense Ministry has said that one pilot and a Russian marine who had been on the rescue helicopter were killed on the ground.

UPDATE NOV 25, 2015

RUSSIA: “SPEAK SOFTLY BUT CARRY A BIG STICK”, LIKE S400 MISSILES

“Dead” Man Talking and Telling the Truth about Turkish Backstabbing

It is always fascinating how predictable the western media whores and their government sponsors are.

What does a person do who starts losing a debate?

He tried to change the subject.

la-fg-russia-turkey-20151125-001
Demonstrators in front of the Turkish embassy in Moscow (Nov 25, 2015)

Well, that’s exactly what’s happening in the American media on this Thanksgiving Eve morning. Only yesterday, all major lamestream media were trumpeting Turkey’s and NATO’s claim that Russian jet was shot down before it entered the Turkish air space.

Today, nearly nada. I had to dig through Golden State WarriorsGeorge OsborneBlack FridayThanksgivingFrançois HollandePope FrancisChicago Police DepartmentCostco and Refugees stories to get to the update on the Russia-Turkey situation.

Why?

Because things evidently did not quite as planned for the New World Order stooges who provoked this deadly incident. Thanks to the heroics of the Syrian special forces, one of the two Russian pilots was rescued right under the noses of their terrorist enemies. And now he is talking to the media, telling everyone the truth of what happened.

The rescued pilot, Capt. Konstantin Murakthin, told Rossiya-1 television that the warplane’s two-man crew had no warning of the Turkish attack and denied they had strayed into Turkish airspace “even for one second.”

“The entire mission was in my full personal control until the explosion,” Murakhtin said from Russia’s Hemeimeem air base near Latakia where he was recuperating after the stealth, 12-hour rescue operation that plucked him from rebel-held territory (see http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34925229).

russian pilot 2015-11-25 at 9.06.03 AM

The navigator vowed to rejoin the air campaign against the anti-Assad forces that Moscow has labeled terrorists.

“I have a debt to pay off on the part of my commander,” Murakhtin said of the SU-24 pilot, Lt. Col. Oleg Peshkov, who was shot dead by rebels as he parachuted from the stricken warplane early Tuesday.

Syrian special forces had staged a dramatic overnight rescue of one of the two Russian pilots who ejected from the SU-24 after it was struck by an air-to-air missile. Both Russian airman had been reported dead by Syrian rebel forces controlling the border area where the plane was shot down.

Which was obviously a false claim, as we now see. The “dead” man is now speaking and helping expose the Turkey-NATO failed ploy to the world.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 8.42.10 AM.PNG

He is not alone. Just as the Truth in Media reported yesterday, today, the Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists in Moscow on Wednesday that the Turkish action in shooting down the jet had all the hallmarks of “a planned provocation.”

As a result, Russia has now ordered the deployment of sophisticated S400 ground-to-air missiles in Syria. The missiles have a range of 250 kilometers (155 miles), according to the missilethreat.com website. The Turkish border is less than 30 miles away.

The Kremlin also said it was moving the missile-carrying cruiser Moskva closer to the Syrian government-controlled Latakia area, where Tuesday’s deadly confrontation occurred, to provide better protection of Russian aircraft.

So Russia is speaking softly but carrying a big stick, to borrow the Teddy Roosevelt phrase.

The strengthening of Russian air defenses in the region further raises the stakes for the multinational coalition trying to contain the Islamic State extremists who have proclaimed a “caliphate” in the vast Syrian and Iraqi territory they control. If Russia were to shoot down a Turkish plane, or one from any other NATO member state, the Western military alliance would be obliged to respond to the attack.

Speaking ahead of his meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan in Sochi (Nov 24), the Russian leader said:

“This event is beyond the normal framework of fighting against terrorism. Of course our military is doing heroic work against terrorism… But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists. I can’t describe it in any other way. 

Our aircraft was downed over the territory of Syria, using air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16. It fell on the Syrian territory 4km from Turkey.

Neither our pilots nor our jet threatened the territory of Turkey. This is obvious. They are fighting terrorists in the northern areas around Latakia, where militants are located, mainly people who originated in Russia, and they were pursuing their direct duty, to make sure these people do not return to Russia. These are people who are clearly international terrorists.

Taking into account that we signed an agreement on deconflicting with the US, and as we know Turkey was among the ones that has joined the US coalition. 

Since ISIS has such huge resources of hundreds of millions and billions of dollars coming from illicit oil sales, and they are protected by the armed forces of other states, then it’s clear why they are so brazen, why they are killing people, why they are carrying out terrorist attacks throughout the world including in the heart of Europe.

We will analyse everything, and today’s tragic event will have significant consequences, including for Russia-Turkish relations. We have always treated Turkey as a friendly state. I don’t know who was interested in what happened today, certainly not us. And instead of immediately getting in contact with us, as far as we know, the Turkish side immediately turned to their partners from Nato to discuss this incident, as if we shot down their plane and not they ours.

There has been abundance of images today surrounding the downed Russian jet, which has generated suspicions among some.”
