from StormCloudsGathering On April 6th, 2017, on the 100 year anniversary of America’s entry into World War I, Donald Trump launched airstrikes against against the Syrian government; in retaliation for a gas attack supposedly perpetrated by Assad. There was no investigation, not even a hack job of a frame up like we had in 2003. The evidence we do have contradicts the official story, and the stakes are much higher this time around. Full transcript and sources available here.

If the last three years have taught us anything, it is that the so-called anti-war liberal left can be made to become cheerleaders for the same war agenda that they pretended to deride during the Bush Administration. How was this accomplished? A developing doctrine of international law called “Responsibility to Protect.” Links to sources and show notes here.
Once the home of the anti-war movement, under Barack Obama the Left advocated a continuation of war and mass murder by using the political expediency of humanitarian interventionism. In this episode of The Geopolitical report, we unpack how establishment Democrats have continued the wars begun by President George W. Bush Now that Donald Trump is president and the wars continue, the antiwar movement will emerge from the shadows and reveal its hypocritical political coloration. Links, sources and show notes here.

Poor CNN seem to be having more technical problems. Here we see Congressman Chris Collins having the satellite feed cut literally only three seconds after he says Wikileaks: CNN have had trouble with their satellite feeds before, their temperamental equipment has cut off reporters who bring up Clinton’s past: …and then prematurely ended interviews with African-American voters who endorse the “wrong” candidate: And this isn’t the only problem CNN have had working around “the W word” recently. A clip of the same host – Chris Cuomo – recently went viral when he claimed it was illegal for members of the public to view the wikileaks files, but that it was “different for the media”. Cuomo goes on to say: Everything you learn about [wikileaks], you’re learning through us.” You wish, CNN.
The world once again finds itself hurtling to the brink of war, and once again the establishment mouthpiece puppet propaganda media is leading the charge. This time around their lies defy description. In the sick world of the would-be warmongers, child beheading terrorist scum are now the heroes. The blood of the innocents that spill from here on in covers the hands of the mainstream media propagandists.
This short video is very revealing, when confronted with a black Trump voter calling for people to “stop with all the race-baiting”, they simply cut his mic off and immediately move to undermine and disparage his position. Just like the European Referendum in Britain, the media is determined to limit this election – and especially the Trump campaign – to racism and racial politics. Anyone diverting from this narrative will be censored immediately.
Very enlightening video that shows just how deep the corporate endorsement of Hillary Clinton goes. Google is clearly concealing searches that may reflect badly on the Clinton. Credit to SourceFed for a very well put together video.
In the run up to the US Presidential election, we highlight James Corbett’s enlightening run-down of the power couple, their unsavoury histories and their scandals both past and present.
from Russia Insider Following the recent revelation that Billionaire financier George Soros (among others) stands behind the release of the “Panama Papers,” it behooves us to remember what else Soros has funded over the years. Recently it became clear that Soros was sponsoring distruptions at Donald Trump speeches in the US. But most of Soros’ money and time goes to trying to engineer “regime change” abroad – particularly in Eastern Europe. What a generous fellow.
This short, ever so slightly tongue-in-cheek, documentary interviews material witnesses and renowned experts to probe into some of the gaping holes left in the official “explanation” of Mr Litvinenko’s murder. Read the full RI column here. See update below video UPDATE: After this article appeared we were contacted by one of the makers of the documentary. Apparently they have been offering segments of their work – free of charge – to every broadcasting outlet in the UK. But none of them even bothered to reply, let alone run the story. So, what happened to balanced broadcasting guys?
Video from UK Indymedia World-class set of independent Syria experts pull Britain’s latest folly apart. Investigative reports: Interview with Mehrnaz Shahabi, an Iranian Bristolian, on Syria: Roland Dumas and his claim the British started the Syrian civil war on French TV, Wikileaks documents, and regime change in Syria – witnesses in Syria say Jihadis in crowd at early demonstrations were shooting at demonstrators and police. Interview with Dan Glazebrook, author of ‘Divide and Ruin, about Syria.
France’s Former Foreign Minister, Roland Dumas, has stated in a televised program on LCP that UK government officials had told him about preparations for war in Syria two years prior to the start of the 2011 protests and conflict. The reason given for this war is the Syrian government’s anti-Israel stance that made Syria a target for Western-backed regime change.
Russian: English: Transcript: Mr. Secretary General, distinguished heads of state and government, Ladies and gentlemen, The 70th anniversary of the United Nations is a good occasion to both take stock of history and talk about our common future. In 1945, the countries that defeated Nazism joined their efforts to lay a solid foundation for the postwar world order. Let me remind you that key decisions on the principles defining interaction between states, as well as the decision to establish the UN, were made in our country, at the Yalta Conference of the leaders of the anti-Hitler coalition. The Yalta system was truly born in travail. It was born at the cost of tens of millions of lives and two world wars that swept through the planet in the 20th century. Let’s be fair: it helped humankind pass through turbulent, and at times dramatic, events of the last seven decades. It saved the world from large-scale upheavals. The United Nations is unique in terms of legitimacy, representation and universality. True, the UN has been criticized lately …

Anyone interested in the Russian POV on the “annexation” of Crimea should watch this film. Is it the final word and full story? Of course not, but it’s an important perspective the western media is content to ignore. I invited heads of our security services, Ministry of Defence to the Kremlin and tasked them with – let’s put it bluntly – saving the life of the President of Ukraine. Our radio surveillance services started tracking his motorcade. It became clear Viktor Yanukovich would soon be ambushed. he would have been simply eliminated…” Vladimir Putin …I said we are forced to consider reuniting Crimea with Russia, because we cannot leave this territory and the people there…under the steamroller of the nationalists.. I have to say we would only do this under the condition we are absolutely certain the people of Crimea want it themselves. We had to let the people express their opinion…” Vladimir Putin English translation and subtitling prepared by VPE
Essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand some of our unacknowledged, unexamined realities. The Fed runs our lives to an extent most of us could never imagine. But what is it?

In this feature-length documentary film, The Corbett Report explores these important question and pulls back the curtain on America’s central bank.
