MY WARTIME DIARIES: VICTORS’ JUSTICE ON DISPLAY AT THE HAGUE

hsgue-court-header1

PROLOGUE BY THE AUTHOR: ABOUT MY WARTIME DIARIES

I spent over 12 years covering the Balkans wars and conflicts as an independent journalist (1989-2002). Over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes during that time. Because the wars were largely incited by foreign powers, more specifically – the United States and Great Britain.

Why?

So they could fill the political vacuum in Yugoslavia created by the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991). And then co-opt most of the Balkans nations into NATO.  But to do that, they first had to create a problem to which the ultimate solution would be a NATO takeover.

During my work as a war correspondent, I met with many of the major players is this tragedy in which over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes. The major protagonists included top statesmen, army chiefs, high-level diplomats of the U.S., Britain, France, Canada, Russia and Belgium, and literally hundreds of other individuals I had come across on the front lines as well as in the boardrooms. hawthorne-sophia

As always, I kept careful and copious notes about these conversations and events I witnessed. After each of those field trips to the Balkans, I would file a copy of my wartime diary with the Chief Archivist of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in California. That’s just in case something happened to me. But my stipulation was that my diaries may not be available for public viewing for a period of at least five years after the war’s end. I did not want my conversations with principals in this war drama to affect in any way the outcome of the war or the subsequent war crimes trials at the Hague.

Well, now that it has been over 20 years since the end of the Bosnian war, and that all of the Hague trials are just about over, I have decided to make my four most important diaries public.  They can be accessed as PDFs by clicking on the following title pages.

And now, here’s a quick analysis of the trials at the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, starting with last week’s Karadzic judgment, followed by an insight about how the Americans and the British duped the Serbs into taking Srebrenica, and with that, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

VICTORS’ JUSTICE ON DISPLAY AT THE HAGUE

FORMER BOSNIAN SERB LEADER RADOVAN KARADZIC GUILTY OF GENOCIDE, WAR CRIMES (NPR)

March 24, 2016

Also, HOW THE SERBS WERE DUPED INTO TAKING SREBRENICA (Bosnia)

After a trial that took nearly 7 years and 500 days of court testimony, the three judges of the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague did what the New World Order powers that be expected of them at the outset. They found the former Bosnian Serb karadzic_wide-b3872b11570158dfa9fa38dcd89cc913e2d37547-s800-c85president Dr Radovan Karadzic guilty of of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and sentenced him to 40 years in prison.

Since Dr Karadzic is 70, the verdict means a virtual life sentence.

Ominously, the sentence was pronounced today March 24, on the anniversary of NATO’s attack on Serbia in 1999. Yet none of the criminals who ordered those crimes against humanity have been charged with such crimes (Bill Clinton, Gen Wesley Clark, Xavier Solana, Madeleine Albright, and other leaders of the NATO countries who ordered and participated in the attack (see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1kP).

MY TESTIMONY AT THE HAGUE TRIAL

Karadzic-Bob-Djurdjevic070312

Four years ago, I gave testimony during Dr Karadzic’s trial about my meetings and conversations with him and other participants in the Bosnian war during the 1990s, when I worked as a war correspondent from the Balkans.

By chance or by providence, certainly not by design, I just happened to be here actually during the alleged Srebrenica massacre in July 1995. And I spent most of that day with Dr Karadzic and other senior government leaders, such as Momcilo Krajisnik and Dr Nikola Koljevic. I also published a contemporaneous story about it – “On the Run…” – A Bosnian Wartime Vignette – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Vignettes/On-the-run-(Bosnia).html. Which is how the Hague prosecutors learned about me when they asked me to testify.

I said in my testimony at the trial that, “I (have) found that often times disinformation was passed on to the American public and other Western public not by outright lying, but (by) the deception by omission, by omission of the salient facts,” this writer said answering a question about the western media deceptions posed by the Defendant. “And I saw it as my mission to fill in these gaps so the full truth be known. Because without the full truth, there cannot be a full reconciliation, and without the (full) reconciliation, there cannot be real peace and harmony.”

I also said that I saw no evidence from my conversations with Dr Karadzic that he knew anything about any alleged massacres in Srebrenica. But the judges did what they were expected to do – deliver a guilty verdict anyway.

HOW THE SERBS WERE DUPED INTO TAKING SREBRENICA (Bosnia)

What follows below an excerpt from a Nov 2015 interview with Robert Baer, former CIA agent who was active in Yugoslavia during the start of the Balkans wars. As usual, some who do not want the full truth about the dismemberment of Yugoslavia to come out have tried to cast doubts about the veracity of this interviewScreen Shot 2016-03-26 at 12.08.51 PM. I cannot vouch for everything that is attributed here to Robert Baer. But I can say two things:

First, Baer is a very well respected author and a former CIA agent with a conscience and courage to speak the truth (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Baer).
Second, what Baer said here about Srebrenica not only fits with what I saw and heard when I was there (in Bosnia) as a war correspondent during the exact time Srebrenica was taken by the Serbian army. It actually does not go far enough.

The Serbs were duped not only by the Americans (CIA and diplomats), but also by the British. In fact, it is my humble opinion that the British role in encouraging the Serbs to attack Srebrenica was greater than that of Washington (see see “PERFIDIOUS ALBION STRIKES AGAIN”http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim97-1-7.html).

Confession of a CIA Agent: They Gave Us Millions to Dismember Yugoslavia

“My boss, who was formerly a US Senator, stressed repeatedly that some kind of scam would go down in Bosnia. A month before the alleged genocide in Srebrenica, he told me that the town would be headline news around the world and ordered us to call the media. When I asked why, he said you’ll see.

Srebrenica should be blamed on Bosnians (Muslims), Serbs and Americans – that is us! But in fact everything has been blamed on the Serbs. Unfortunately, many of the victims buried as Muslims were Serbs and other nationalities. A few years ago a friend of mine, a former CIA agent and now at the IMF, said that Srebrenica is the product of agreement between the US government and politicians in Bosnia. The town of Srebrenica was sacrificed to give America a motive to attack the Serbs for their alleged crimes.”

NOT JUST THE AMERICANS: THE BRITISH PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN DUPING THE SERBS

(An excerpt from Bob Altzar Djurdjevic’s war time diaries)

ALTZAR: Not just Americans. The British also played a part of encouraging the Serbs to attack Srebrenica. I know this firsthand. I was there. I was with the late Dr. Nikola Koljevic, vice president of the Bosnian Serb government, on July 13, 2015, the day after the Serbs took Srebrenica. Here’s an excerpt from my wartime diary:
koljevic“His (Koljevic’s) brother, a playwright, has never been very active in politics. Which is why he was surprised to have received an invitation to attend a party at the British Embassy in Belgrade celebrating the Queen’s birthday.
During the cocktail reception, Koljevic’s brother was approached by the British ambassador, Ivor Roberts, and given the following message, as if in passing:
12414075575088298f35860237299566_v4big“The Queen would have no objections if the Serbs in Bosnia were to settle the territorial disputes on the ground.” Koljevic figured that that was the British government’s “green light” for the Bosnian Serb Republic to launch its assault on the Muslim enclaves in Eastern Bosnia (Srebrenica, Zepa and Gorazde). Which, of course, the Bosnian Serbs did in July.”

Four months later while meeting with some of my British intelligence contacts in London, I had this story confirmed and embellished:

“LONDON, December 5, 1995 (Tuesday)

(a meeting at the hotel with XX, a former British intelligence operative – 15:30 to 16:40) 

U.S. Green Light “Hint” Re. Srebrenica

XX said that he “knew for a fact” (“I have a copy of the letter”) that the U.S. gave the Bosnian Serbs a “green light” to take Srebrenica and Zepa. He said he wouldn’t tell me who it was that did it, but that this person had written to Karadzic’s government and advised them to feel free to attack Srebrenica. But that this “source” had “couched the advice in four layers of disclaimers about how he wasn’t sure that this was accurate information.”

TiM Ed.: Only five hours later, I found out that this “mystery” person was. No wonder another U.S. source had expressed doubts about this supposedly pro-Serb SOB, when he showed up at this source’s Belgium apartment with two German agents. This leftist was either a double agent or was duped into being a conduit.

I said to XX that the Americans weren’t the only ones trying to con the Bosnian Serbs.

“Your (British) government did it, too,” I said. “Which only goes to show you that they have all conspired to f… the Serbs, not just the Americans.” 

XX seemed genuinely stunned about the revelation to do with the British treachery.”

NOTE: Ivor Roberts, the former British ambassador to Yugoslavia with whom I have also met a number of times, both and the British embassy and at his residence, is now president of Oxford’s Trinity College. He was knighted by the Queen in 2000. So he is now Sir Ivor Anthony Roberts KCMG.

RUSSIA SPEAKS OUT IN DEFENCE OF KARADZIC, SERBIA, ALLEGES BIAS OF HAGUE WAR CRIMES COURT

Furthermore…

ALTZAR (Truth in Media): Of the 161 people indicted by the court, 94 of were Serbs, 29 were Croats, 9 were Albanians, 9 are Bosnian Muslims. Image11

Of the 94 indicted Serbs, 70 were convicted and sentenced, only 1 acquitted, and the rest died before the sentence was pronounced.

  • Of the 29 indicted Croats, 19 were convicted.
  • Of the 9 indicted Bosnian Muslims, 4 were convicted.
  • Of the 9 indicted Albanians, 2 were convicted.

Those are the FACTS.

What happened in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995 was a civil war. All parties committed crimes as it always happens in a war. But the vast majority of indictees were Serbs. And the Serbs accounted for an even greater majority of convictions.

DEMOGRAPHICS BEFORE THE WAR

The ICTY court’s bias appears even more egregious when you consider the Bosnian and Kosovo demographics before the war.

In Bosnia, the Muslims accounted for 44% of the population, the Croats 17% and the Serbs 31%. The balance to 100% were “Yugoslavs.”

In Kosovo, prior to the 1999 war, there were 83% Albanians, 10% Serbs and 7% other ethnic groups, according to the demographic report to the Court.

As of the 2011 Census, however, only 1.5% of the current Kosovo population were Serbs. Ironically, it is the Serbs – the victims – who were tried and convicted of “ethnic cleansing” in the media. And now in the courts, too.

CONCLUSION

So now that you know these FACTS, You can judge for yourself whether or not the Hague War Crimes Tribunal was biased against the Serbs. And understand why the Russian government felt compelled to speak out on behalf of the Serbs and the truth.

BEWARE OF NATIONS THAT FALL IN LOVE WITH THEIR LEADER

Serbia_in_my_Heart_by_neso777999

Serbs are in love with their new leader. That’s wonderful. And dangerous. Because love is blind. (ALTZAR, July 1989)

Beware of nations that fall in love with their leader.

Why?

Because love is blind.

Hitler_speechesTake Germany in the 1930s, for example. They adored Hitler. They hung on his every word. One million Germans turned out for his May 1, 1933 speech at Templehofer Field in Berlin. They followed him without question.

And look what all that love got them. Seven million dead Germans at the end of World War II.

Or take Serbia in 1989. They also adored Milosevic. They hung on his every word. More than one million Serbs turned out for his Gazimestan speech in Kosovo on June 28, slobodan-milosevic-en-su-discurso-del-28-de-junio-de-19891989, commemorating the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Kosovo. hqdefault

And look what all that love got them. Tens of thousands of Serb casualties. Hundreds of thousands of refugees. Loss of Kosovo, the cradle of the Serbian civilization. Separation of the Serbs in Croatia and Bosnia. A dismemberment of the centuries old Serbian habitats.

1280px-Serbia_in_the_Yugoslav_WarsIn other words, a disaster.

What brought on this lesson in history?

Russia. Russia is in love with its leader… Putin.

And so are many other people around the world who are disgusted with their own leaders and governments.

RUSSIA IN LOVE… WITH PUTIN

Putin Kremlin

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin feeds a baby elk while visiting the Losiny Ostrov national park in Moscow, Saturday, June 5, 2010. The national park, a specially protected nature territory, is Moscow’s only park where wild animals live free. 

For the last several months, I have been observing an increased popularity of the Russian leader Vladimir Putin, both at home and abroad. In Russia, his approval rating had reached nearly 90% even before his decision to commit Russia’s armed forces against ISIS in Syria.

PERSONALITY CULT

On Facebook, for example, the global weathervane of social status of any person or issue, there are now numerous groups and pages dedicated to Putin.

Like the Vladimir Putin Fan Club, for example, that now boasts nearly 90,000 members. Which is huge group number by Facebook group standards. The George Clooney Fan Club, for example, as 1,571 members,

The trouble is, the Putin Club is carefully censored, so that only favorable comments and articles get through.

And that – censorship – is the first telltale sign of a love gone blind. Or a dictatorship reincarnate. Because the only way we can learn and progress is through diversity of opinions.

That’s not democracy. That’s just being human. We humans have been designed to crave freedom. Which includes freedom of expression.

Just over a year ago, I published an editorial on Putin – “IS PUTIN NAIVE OR COY?, NOVEMBER 3, 2014).

Here are the two bullet-conclusions from this piece:

  • “There is no greater enemy to the mob leaders than when one of them turns rogue.” (Truth in Media)
  • “That Putin is now badmouthing the club of which he used to be a member sounds more like sour grapes of a jolted lover than rebellious statesmanship” (Truth in Media)

Perhaps Putin has sobered up in a year and a month since this article was published. Perhaps he has also contemplated the lessons history can offer, such as the Hitler and Milosevic examples.

The only way we will know for sure is if he starts dismantling this hero-worshipping personality cult and frenzy that has gripped Russia at the present time. And also some of the rest of the world.

Should Putin do so, and should he force diversity of opinions in the Russian and global media to be freely voiced, then this writer will be also prepared to give him a nod.

But if he just sits back and enjoys his current popularity, watch out. There’ll be assassins with knives lurking in the shadows. Just as with Julius Caesar and many other popular leaders in the past.

In February 1992, during a long meeting with the then Serbian President Milosevic at his office in Belgrade two months before the Bosnian war broke out, I tried to tell him that.

“One day, you might be tried for war crimes,” I warned him.

He shrugged and smiled dismissively.

(see Milosevic: “A Riddle Wrapped in a Mystery Inside an Enigma”, June 1998).

BACKGROUND AND PREFACE/EPILOGUE

I left my birthplace, the former country of Yugoslavia illicitly, without an exit visa. I emigrated to North America via Switzerland. I did it because I feared that, as one of the leaders of the student rebellion against the communist government in June 1968, it was just a matter of time before I were be arrested or hampered in my career. Because I left illegally, I never expected to return.

But return I did. As it turned out, my self-imposed exile lasted two decades. By 1989, communism was crumbling even in the Soviet Union.

In May 1989, I received an invitation from the Yugoslav government to attend an international business conference in Belgrade. I accepted it, reluctantly, not trusting the Milosevic communist government more than Tito’s. But now as a successful American businessman, I was welcomed back home as a prodigal son, red carpet and all.

TWENTY SIX YEARS AGO…

ALTZAR’S EDITORIAL COMMENT

July 23, 1989

SERBIA IN LOVE!

“It seems to me as if the Serbs in Yugoslavia are now living in a time capsule.  As if they are frantically trying to make up for the last 45 years of their history of which Tito’s (communist) anti-Serbian policies have deprived them…

In other words, the Serbs are in love; in love with their heritage, and in love with their new leader – (Slobodan) Milosevic. 

That’s wonderful.  And dangerous, too.  Just ask a teenage girl…

By the way, that’s also how Americans felt about George Washington after the Treaty of Paris (1783) restored our own hard-fought-for rights of which a British dictator (George III, the king) had deprived them.

Indeed, euphoria that follows liberation can be as intoxicating as the first love.  But ‘love is blind,’ as they say.  And (without intending any harm to the handicapped) – who wants to follow a blind person?

At the time (back in 1989-1990), Milosevic had a 90% approval rating in Serbia, about the same as Putin in Russia now. In fact, Milosevic was so popular in Serbia that this writer suffered the wrath of even his own family over the above editorial comments.

Thus he felt the need to explain and defend his stance in the Aug. 6, 1990 and Sep. 22, 1990 letters that follow:

ONE YEAR LATER, July 31, 1990

PHOENIX, July 31, 1990 – During the 12 months since my “Marketing of Serbia” essay was written (on July 23, 1989 – see above), I have been trying to figure out if Slobodan Milosevic was a. was a Communist masquerading as a Serbian nationalist, or a Serbian nationalist masquerading as a Communist.

After my meeting with him last January (1990), I was leaning toward the latter possibility.  But after my visit to Belgrade in June (1990), during which I saw what was billed as “the first opposition parties’ rally in 45 years” – after Milosevic’s sudden call for a referendum in late June; after his Hitler-like dissolution of the Kosovo parliament; and after his election as president of the ‘new’ Socialist Party of Serbia – I don’t think that there is much room for doubt left.  He may be a genuine Serbian nationalist. But so was Hitler – a genuine German nationalist!

In other words, Milosevic seems to be first and foremost a dictator, now masquerading as a democracy-loving socialist – so as to keep his job!

“Serbia is still led by retreads from the Communist Party who have neither moral nor practical authority to carve ‘a place under the sun,’ for our people,” agreed (the late) Dr. Milorad Draskovic of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

FIVE YEARS LATER, July 23, 1994

My reporting from Bosnia and Serbia as war correspondent, meetings with Mladic, Karadzic, betrayal by Milosevic, Serbian sanctions; one year later (1995), Bosnian Serbs start to lost the war they had in their hands in July 1993. NATO to bomb them next month and finish them off.

On Dec 14, 1995, the Dayton Peace Accord is signed in Paris, ending the Bosnian war. And kicking off the next phase of the New World Order’s war on Serbia and Milosevic.

TEN YEARS LATER, July 23, 1999

NATO attacks Serbia and bombs the country for 78 days (Mar 24 – June 6, 1999).

A year later (2000), it is the beginning of the end for Milosevic.

ELEVEN YEARS LATER, Sep 24, 2000

On 24 September 2000, Milošević was defeated in the first round In the five-man presidential race. The election was won by the opposition leader Vojislav Koštunica, who won slightly more than 50% of the vote. Milošević initially refused to acquiesce, claiming that no one had won a majority.

The Yugoslav constitution called for a runoff between the top two candidates in the event that no candidate won more than 50% of the vote. Official results put Koštunica ahead of Milošević but at under 50 percent. The internationally financed CeSID claimed otherwise, though its story changed throughout the two weeks between 24 September and 5 October.This led to mass demonstrations in Belgrade on 5 October, known as the Bulldozer Revolution.

Milošević was forced to accept this when commanders of the army who he had expected to support him had indicated that in this instance they would not, and would permit the violent overthrow of the Serbian government.[citation needed] On 6 October, Milošević met with Koštunica and publicly accepted defeat. Koštunica finally took office as Yugoslav president on 7 October following Milošević’s announcement.

TWELVE YEARS LATER, June 28, 2001

Milošević was arrested by Yugoslav authorities on April 1, 2001 following a 36 hour armed standoff between police and Milošević’s bodyguards at his Belgrade villa. He was sent to the Hague for prosecution of alleged war crimes on June 28, 2001, exactly 12 years after his greatest triumph – a speech at Gazimestan, Kosovo to a crowd of about one million people – commemorating the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Kosovo.

SEVENTEEN YEARS LATER – DEATH, Mar 11, 2006

Milosevic died in his cell at the Hague War Crimes Tribunal prison on Mar 11, 2006 allegedly of a heart attack. But Milosevic had complained days before that he was being poisoned.

The drug found in Milosevic’s blood both two weeks before and after his death is a powerful antibiotic known as Rifampicin, used to treat serious bacterial infections like tuberculosis, leprosy and Legionnaire’s disease. Rifampicin is known to interfere with medications Milosevic was taking for high blood pressure.

Milosevic wrote a letter, dated March 8, to the Russian government, saying that on March 7, he received a report that “an extremely strong drug” was found in his blood and that doctors were treating him wrongly to silence him. His lawyer, Mr. Tomanovic, said Mr. Milosevic feared that he was being poisoned.

Mr. Tomanovic said he had delivered this letter, accompanied by a handwritten note from Mr. Milosevic, to the Russian Embassy in The Hague on Friday morning. He was found dead the next morning (Mar 11, 2006).

On Mar 31, 2006, a United Nations investigation into the death of Slobodan Milosevic found no evidence of foul play or suicide.

Meanwhile, Milosevic was the 6th person who died at the UN War Crimes Tribunal prison at the Hague. All six were Serbs. They ranges in ages from 50 to 64.

A coincidence?

UPDATE APRIL 3, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-04-03 at 2.51.57 PM.PNG

RUSSIAN PUTIN FAN GROUP CENSORSHIP

Back in December, I published the Truth in Media editorial “BEWARE OF NATIONS THAT FALL IN LOVE WITH THEIR LEADER” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1dZ. I cited the Vladimir Putin Fan Club as a case in point – https://www.facebook.com/groups/vladimirputinfans/.

 

This Facebook group now boasts over 94,000 members. Which is huge by FB group standards. The George Clooney Fan Club, for example, has 1,952 members,
 
The trouble is, the Putin Club is carefully censored, so that only favorable comments and articles get through.
 
How do I know that?
 
Well, this morning, I posted to this group the breaking news story about the largest leak in history of investigative journalism – A PANAMA BOMBSHELL: “MOTHER OF ALL LEAKS” – http://panamapapers.sueddeutsche.de/articles/56febff0a1bb8d3c3495adf4/
 
My post was approved by the censors and appeared on the Vladimir Putin Fan Club for awhile. But when I added the excerpt which also implicated Putin and his friends in the laundering business of dirty money, my post was taken down.
ALTZAR: This is the biggest leak in the history of investigative journalism. Yet there is not a peep about it in the U.S. media. Fear not, though. A leak of this size and kind is likely to cause a tsunami around the world of the kind that even our lamestream media cannot ignore.
 
As Edward Snowden said in a tweet a few minutes ago, “courage is contagious.” He was referring to someone inside Mossack Fonseca law firm who released the 2.6 terabytes of data about these secret deals and dirty money. – https://panamapapers.icij.org/20160403-putin-russia-offshore-network.html
 
I reposted my initial post a couple of hours later, just to test the system and make sure it was censorship and not an accidental removal. The second post was deleted just like the first one.
 
So back to my December editorial:
 
“And that – censorship – is the first telltale sign of a love gone blind. Or a dictatorship reincarnate. Because the only way we can learn and progress is through diversity of opinions.”
 
“That’s not democracy. That’s just being human. We humans have been designed to crave freedom. Which includes freedom of expression.”

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.

SAME PATTERN, SAMO “MO”, SAME PROPAGANDA, SAME GOALS IN ALL THESE COUNTRIES

NEW WORLD ORDER”S FALSE FLAG ATTACKS IN ALLIED COUNTRIES BOND THEM TO US/BRITAIN IN POLICE STATE TERROR TACTICS

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.

UPDATE MAY 13, 2015

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.

“YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR:” US SUPREME COURT MAKES IT OFFICIAL (ACT IV)

LET IT RAIN (ACID)… SUPREME COURT TAKES THE U.S. TO THE DARK AGES OF INDUSTRIAL ERA POLLUTION

THE SUPREMES RULE AGAINST EPA POLLUTION CONTROL

Supremes Money Talks header

“You Get What You Pay For:” US Supreme Court Makes It Official (Act IV)

WASHINGTON, June 29, 2015 — The Supreme Court on Monday blocked one of the Obama administration’s most ambitious environmental initiatives, one meant to limit emissions of mercury and other toxic pollutants from coal-fired power plants.

“You get what you pay for,” goes an old saw. For the fourth time in the last 15 months, 5 of the 9 US Supreme Court judges sided today with Big Money against the American people (also see How New World Order Mob Took Over America in Just Two Decades).

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the majority opinion in the 5-to-4 decision, joined by the court’s more conservative members, according to today’s New York Times.

“For E.P.A. to focus its ‘appropriate and necessary’ determination on factors relating to public health hazards, and not industry’s objections that emission controls are costly, properly puts the horse before the cart,” Judge Judith W. Rogers wrote for the majority.

Industry groups and some 20 states challenged the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to regulate the emissions, saying the agency had failed to take into account the punishing costs its regulations would impose.

In other words, the Supremes have ruled that MONEY is more important than HEALTH.

“You Get What You Pay For:” US Supreme Court Makes It Official (for a Second Time in Three Months)

WASHINGTON, June 25, 2014 – “You get what you pay for,” goes an old saw. The US Supreme Court has just made it official. For a second time in three months, they sided with Big Money against American Consumer (also see “Money Talks: US Supreme Court Makes It Official” – below and(also see How New World Order Mob Took Over America in Just Two Decades).).

“Money talks,” they say. And Big Money talks big through the US Supreme Court. Make it a Corporate Court from now on. F0r, the nine judges’ decisions make it quite clear whose interests they have been appointed to protect.

It’s payback time for Corporate America. And the Supremes delivered. Again. By gagging technological innovators and upholding the status quo which favors big Hollywood and New York broadcasters (see 3-Big broadcasters vanquish upstart Aereo at U.S. Supreme Court, Reuters, 6-25-14).

Money Talks: US Supreme Court Makes It Official

WASHINGTON, April 2, 2014 – They say, “money talks.”  The US Supreme Court has just made it official.  If you’re rich and want to buy politicians across the country, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that you can (also see How New World Order Mob Took Over America in Just Two Decades).Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 2.53.09 PM

The 5-4 ruling eliminated limits on how much money people can donate in total in one election season. As a result, the rich Americans have just bought their wallets the same rights as you and I have (at least in theory) under our Constitution. “Freedom of speech” now applies to rich Americans’ wallets.

Which is what happens in a plutocracy.  It’s payback time for America’s would-be “ruling elite” who have worked so diligently over the last two decades to stack the US Supreme Court with judges who would do their bidding (see How New World Order Mob Took Over America in Just Two Decades).

For more details, check out this CNN story.

“In a decision that could crimp consumers’ hopes to cut the cord from their cable operators, the U.S Supreme Court said Aereo Inc, a video streaming service backed by media mogul Barry Diller, violated copyright law by using tiny antennas to broadcast TV content online to paying subscribers. Wednesday’s 6-3 decision is a victory for traditional network operators such as CBS Corp, NBC parent Comcast Corp, ABC parent Walt Disney Co and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. It may also make it harder for Internet rivals to provide alternative, a la carte programming at cut-rate prices.”

WASHINGTON, Apr 2, 104 – Which is what happens in a plutocracy that America has become.  It’s payback time for America’s would-be “ruling elite” who have worked so diligently over the last two decades to stack the US Supreme Court with judges who would do their bidding (see How New World Order Mob Took Over America in Just Two Decades).

1in_god_we_trust

Nor is this writer alone in arriving at this conclusion. Check out this headline comment at the Alliance for Justice web site:

The Corporate Court

With decision after decision coming down on the side of big business, the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Roberts has proven itself to be willing and eager to twist the law to favor powerful corporate interests over everyday Americans. In just the last few years, the Court has radically rewritten laws in order to shield big business from liability, insulate corporate interests from environmental and antitrust regulation, make it easier for companies to discriminate against women and the elderly, and enable powerful interests to flood our election process with special interest dollars. Fairness has been thrown out the window. The 1% keep winning while the 99% keep losing.

A CASE OF CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE? IRS: 100,000 US TAXPAYERS’ FILES STOLEN, BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WASTED

In 2011, the IRS Wasted $3.6 Billion on Fraudulent Refunds, Even Sending Thousands of Refunds to Foreign Countries

IRS identity theft

In One Account Alone, the IRS Deposited 590 Tax Refunds!

23,944 Tax Refunds Were Sent to Just One Address in Atlanta, Totaling $46,378,000!

In 2015, Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of more than $4.8 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation’s income, according to Tax Foundation. That’s more than this country of 319 million people spends on food, clothing, and housing – combined! (see TAX OPPRESSION IN AMERICA, Apr 2015).

Bad enough, right, when you consider how our money is being squandered on foreign wars that only benefit certain banks and corporations instead of building up our society. But what if I told you that the government’s collection agency – the IRS – is sending thousands of refunds to fraudulent recipients across the country, and even to foreign countries, such as  Bulgaria, Lithuania, China or Ireland?

In one account alone, the IRS deposited 590 tax refunds. A total of 23,944 tax refunds Were sent to just one address in Atlanta, totaling $46,378,000.

These are just some of the example of gross negligence the IRS exhibited in processing electronic filing of our income tax returns, according to a letter to the IRS commissioner signed by 39 House Representatives in Apr 2014 (Congressmen’s letter to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen).

United States Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen appears before a House Oversight and Government Reform Government Operations Subcommittee hearing on "Examining Solutions to Close the $106 Billion Improper Payment Gap" in Washington July 9, 2014.    REUTERS/Gary Cameron
United States Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen appears before a House Oversight and Government Reform Government Operations Subcommittee hearing on “Examining Solutions to Close the $106 Billion Improper Payment Gap” in Washington July 9, 2014. REUTERS/Gary Cameron

So what has the IRS done to plug these leaks in over a year since that letter was sent? It appears not much. Because today, May 26, the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said that tax return information for about 100,000 U.S. taxpayers was illegally accessed by cyber criminals over the past four months (see Reuters story).

From February to May 2915, attackers sought to gain access to personal tax information 200,000 times through the agency’s “Get Transcript” online application, which calls up information from previous returns, he told a news conference. About half of those attempts were successful.

The data theft was largely intended to steal taxpayers’ information to submit fraudulent returns next year, Koskinen said.

The agency currently believes that fewer than 15,000 fraudulent returns were processed as a result of the breach, likely resulting in refunds of less than $50 million.

In response to this story, we received a letter from Rita Redmond, a Truth in Media reader in Phoenix, who said she was a victim of such an identity theft.

“In April 2014, I realized my SS# had been stolen and someone filed a Federal Return using my Tax ID#.  How is it that mine (and I was certain others’ tax refunds) could have gone into someone else’s bank account?  What kind of fire-walls does the IRS have in place? I felt they should have tighter IT security applications at the front end, rather than all the clean up at the other side and the loss of dollars.”

Indeed. Here’s what the Truth in Media editor wrote on that topic earlier today:

“Wonders of technology! Not !!!! This what happens when the government FORCES us to file electronically. First they spy on us electronically – and illegally. Then they let our private information slip through their fingers.”

“Perhaps the IRS should be charged with criminal negligence. For those not familiar with legal terms, “criminal negligence is a ‘misfeasance or ‘nonfeasance’, where the fault lies in the failure to foresee and so allow otherwise avoidable dangers to manifest.”

No wonder fraud victims like Ms Redmond are livid:

“I am so angry.  This is shameful.  Someone else received twice the amount of my legitimate return.  I want to know that whoever store my Federal return is arrested and jailed but the IRS “call center” tells me the investigation takes 9 months and I will never know who it was.  This tells me whoever has these millions of dollars has time to cover their trail and get away with it. “

Only if we, the taxpayers, say silent about it. Which is why we are publishing this story. If you think the IRS has been criminally negligent, call or write to your Congressmen and Senators and demand that the culprits be criminally prosecuted and jailed for failing to carry out their fiduciary duties.

And by all means, file your 2016 return on paper and by mail. The IRS has proven beyond a doubt that they are incapable of safeguarding our private information online.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU: FBI & DEA UNLAWFULLY COLLECTED MASS LICENSE PLATE DATA ACROSS THE US ON MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

FBI deployed mass tracking devices (cameras) across US that could record up to 1,800 license plates a minute, according to internal documents obtained by the ACLU, says London Guardian

…And So Did the DEA

As usual these days, one has to read the foreign press to find out what’s happening in our country. Just like the Soviet citizens had to do at the time USSR communist oligarchs controlled the media.4628e4da-b0dd-4c17-bc17-5ac249066d81-620x372

Anyway, the Guardian report, based on ACLU (American Civic Liberties Union) research, revealed today that NSA was not the only government agency breaking the law while collecting mass data on private American citizens. Check this out…

“Multiplied across the US, the ACLU has calculated that millions of Americans are subject to the surveillance, from which at its most extreme profiles of an individuals movement, behavior and associations could be created.

Jay Stanley, the ACLU’s expert on technology-related privacy issues, said that the heavily redacted documents released by the FBI left many questions still unanswered.

“As is so often the case, we are left with the feeling that the public should know more about the policies that the FBI has developed – if the agency has guidance relating to privacy concerns over this very sensitive technology, then the public should be told about it.”

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).

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.

“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.

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.

UPDATE MAY 13, 2015

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.
