BREAKING Why Didn't the Obama Admin Give Warming About the Chemical Attack

If the intelligence services knew ahead of Assad's plans to gas his people, why didn't they give warming, Dutch General Dick Berlijn is wondering in a tweet



Secretary of State John Kerry's Statement at 4.05 minutes on Friday August 31, 2013

"We know that for three days before the attack the regime's chemical weapons personnel were on the ground, in the area, making preparations. And we know that the Syrian regime elements were prepared by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. We know that these were specific instructions.  We know where the rockets were launched from, and at what time.

The ex-lover of North Korean despot Kim Jong-un was executed by machine guns in front of relatives for allegedly making a sex tape. According to reports, family had to watch on as singer Hyon Song-wol was put in front of a firing squad in public three days after her arrest. She is believed to have been one of 12 well-known performers killed for violating North Korea’s law against pornography. It was also claimed that some possessed Bibles, which meant they were treated as political dissidents. (Source)

Build up of Russian War Fleet in Syria Largest Since the Cold War

Many in the West see the war in Syria through the prism of the Arab Spring. But this rose colored frame is the result of war propaganda. The situation is in fact much more explosive



The build up of Russian military power in the East Mediterranean is dating back at least 18 months 

Reposted from May 18, 2013

The war is Syria is in essence a battle between Shia and Sunni Islam over the hegemony of the Islamic Middle East. On the one hand there's Iran and her proxies - Assad's Socialistic regime and Hezbollah - and on the other end of the divide, the Sunni autocracies of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.

15 Short Points to Understanding the Middle East

Confused about the Middle East? Here's your short guide to instant expertise



























Capiche?

Gas Plays an Explosive Role in the War in Syria

Gas as an aspect of the war in Syria is very much underexposed. Actually it's about a pipeline that is of vital interest to Europe and Qatar. It's a game of chess on a global stage



There's another side to the war in Syria that is of strategic importance: at stake are the economic future of the region and its natural resources

In "Build up of the Russian war fleet largest since the Cold War" we have seen that Syria is the battle field in the fight over the hegemony of the Islamic Middle East between Sunni and Shia Islam. The Russians are not the only ones building up their presence in the region. An American marine vessel just arrived in the Israeli port of Eilat; the Russian Pacific Fleet just passed the Suez Canal and has arrived in the East Med. It seems the stage is now set for a major confrontation.

They include missile strikes, ­disabling the Syrian air force or ­enforcing a no-fly zone across the country".

Opposition in Tunisia Calling for Mass Protests

The Islamists have shown the world a great con trick. But the people of Tunisia and Egypt are on to it and are no longer buying. When will Western politicians and the media catch on?



Jellez: the funeral of Mohammed Brahmi.

UPDATE: Tunisia’s opposition coalition on Friday rejected proposals by the ruling Islamist Ennahda for ending a month-long political crisis, saying their offer to enter talks on a government of technocrats was insufficient. “All negotiations without the (immediate) dissolution of the government are a waste of time,” said Taieb Baccouche, a representative of the National Salvation Front. (...) Ennahda indicated on Thursday, for the first time since the start of the crisis triggered by the assassination of opposition MP Mohamed Brahmi, that it might agree to the resignation of the coalition government which it heads. But the Islamists stressed that a “national dialogue” bringing together supporters and opponents of the ruling coalition needed to take place first. (...) The opposition has called for nationwide anti-government demonstrations, starting on Saturday, with the first big gathering to take place outside the national assembly. (Source)

Anti Frackers: "Resistance Is Justified, As Democracy Just Isn't Working"

The shale gas test drilling sites have been the target of sabotage by a bunch of eco activists who have no respect for the democratic process



Balcombe residents stand up to fracking.

The mouthpiece of the Dutch Green party and the cause of sustainability, the newspaper Trouw, is once again skirting the edges of responsible journalism while reporting on the "war on fracking": the protests at the site of the shale gas test drilling by the Cuadrilla corporation at the British town of Balcombe. According to Trouw anti fracking protests reached boiling point this week, culminating in the arrest of a great number of eco activists, among them Caroline Lucas, MP for the British Green Party.

Trouw is reporting that the MP was released on bail, while declaring "she isn't wont to participate in these sort of activities", but simply had no choice. Well, what do you know?! A member of parliament, with all the resources of democracy at her disposal, is forced to take recourse to extraparliamentary activism. That's sad!

They are really sensitive human beings too, these green democrats: "I have the feeling that the government just isn't listening to the people". At that point in the article Trouw is really going overboard. Lucas:
"At some stage the democratic means at our disposal have been exhausted and one feels obliged to resort to non-violent, direct action".
Stop! Democratic means exhausted? Ms Lucas has a seat on the left side of the aisle in the British parliament, where the debate on fracking is still ongoing. Her declared legitimacy of extraparliamentary 'direct action' is highly debatable.

But is Trouw's reporting correct? No, it isn't. Lucas MP, the activist democrat was actually declaring something quite different. She said: "Resistance is justified, because democracy isn't working." Which is an extraordinary approach. Hypocrisy is rife at the green front; stretching the truth for a good cause isn't considered a big deal. Fact-free alarmism and sabotage are dominating the debate on fracking. Trouw is really piling it on:
"Lucas understands that fear and hyperbole are part and parcel of the debate on fracking and she refuses to participate in the politics of fear. What annoys her, is that there has never been a proper debate". 
And that coming from a MP who has the entire democratic tool kit at her disposal! At this time British PM David Cameron is speaking of an ongoing national debate. The shale gas test drilling sites have been the target of sabotage by a bunch of eco activists who have no respect for the democratic process whatsoever. A couple of Dutch MPs prove that these actions have nothing to do with a public debate either.
Marianne Thieme MP is tweeting that "We can learn a thing or two from the British protests against fracking." 
It's really sad that parliamentarians should opt for extraparliamentary activism instead of open debate. The former director of Greenpeace Netherlands, Liesbeth van Tongeren MP is even worse:
"British protests against fracking are reaching boiling point. I was there and I made this video."
So the member of the Green party was in attendance when the Balcombe protests exploded, citing something about getting experience in "tactics & strategics" in the war on fracking.  It's an outrage that members of parliament are engaging in such activities when the democratic means have not even been exhausted!

But even then. The green minority wants to have their cake and eat it too. They are just as democratic as the D in GDR. This is on par with dumping cement blocks in the North Sea against fishing, and the undermining of railtracks during transports of nuclear waste. These actions are potentially very dangerous and damaging to society as well as the economy.

To the green wing nuts democracy is just another railway track to undermine and an ethics program in which the end justifies the means. Because to them, democracy just isn't working.

Manning Says He's Chelsea and Wants Sex Change

The trial of Wiki leaker Private Manning is entering the final phase. He's facing up to 136 years in prison. Sentencing could take over a month

White-Washing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

The narrative of the meanstream media and the politically correct classes on the situation in Egypt has now started to chrystalize. And lo and behold.. it's a worn out template



Some of the new media, like Sun News of Canada, offer a sound perspective. But they are the exception to the rule. 

After the Arab Spring revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia governments ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood came to power by democratic means. But as much as democrats have sanctioned them, the Ikhwan or the Muslim Brotherhood, is not a normal political party. It isn't, because it's subversive in nature and aims to use democracy (i.e. the ballot box) to come to power, and then use that power to replace democratic values with Islamic ones.

Nigel Farage in Row Over 'Revolution in Europe'

The pomo world unable to distinguish warning from incitement Nigel Farage finds himself at the centre of a row over 'his suggestion' the EU might be 'violently overthrown'



Nigel Farage Infowars Interview November 28, 2012

Nigel Farage is at the centre of a row last night after appearing to suggest ‘violence’ could be justified to overthrow Brussels bureaucrats. The Ukip leader warned that the EU was heading for ‘revolution’ and said violent protest could be the only way for southern European nations to save their democracies. He also compared ‘emergency powers’ adopted by EU leaders during the euro crisis to Adolf Hitler’s suspension of democracy in 1930s Germany.

Democrats Must Support Regime Change in Egypt

The military in Egypt responded to the will of the people, the source of authority, when they deposed MusBro kingpin Morsi, who had violated inalienable rights and the Constitution



Since rights are primary and the military acted on the will of the people, the MusBro claim to power is illegitimate. H/t @ragaiys

As for the rest, apathy and demands on the military to abstain from violence is a position of neutrality in the face of evil and developing genocide. @AACONS make mince meat out of that argument:
There's a good chance that the world's 'democrats' do not need any argument: they're in the tank for the MusBro no matter what. The reason is in plain view and has been for decades: they are against liberty and all the values the West stands for.

They'll always support the enemy, be they Nazis, Soviets, North Vietnamees, Cambodians, Iranian Khomeinists, secular or Islamic terrorists, or the Muslim Brotherhood. They are just made that way.

The EU's Terror Listing of Hezbollah is Going Nowhere

The EU today finally put Hezbollah on its list of terrorist organizations. They cite the attack in Bulgaria as the reason, but the Western alliance against Assad is a transparent motivation



Decades of attacks against the US and Israel could not motivate the EU to label Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

UPDATE: By preserving contact with, and funding of, Hezbollah's "political wing" without substantial measures against its "military wing," the EU not only legitimizes Hezbollah's "political" leadership, but also promotes the entire organization as an important actor in both Lebanese politics and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Counter Terrorism Run By Babies With Razors

A global security alert follows a series of coordinated prison breaks over the past month which freed hundreds of terrorists in nine different countries



US State Department put out a worldwide travel alert and closes 21 embassies and consulates across the Muslim world

UPDATE: Robert Spencer has made an analysis of the culture in US diplomatic and counter terrorism circles and is comparing the actors with fifth graders. We know the phenomenon as 'mental babies with razors' (nominalism). This is how the minds of postmodernists work. In the meantime we hear about Dempsey's Bombshell, a letter about Syria that is really a smokescreen for a message to Israel about "No US Attack on Iran, Ever" (Source)

"Escape to Freedom", a Political Thriller

In an age of tyranny, the courage to stand up for liberty is priceless...



In 2049, the world has become a different place. 

In 2049 China has surpassed the United States as the world's major superpower; Europe is in economic shambles, and Germany considers leaving the European Union as protest against bailing out the EU multiple times. The United States has changed as well. The President is a cold, ruthless man intent on ruling the world under his One World Government concept. The rights and freedoms of individuals have been suppressed, taxation has become oppressive, and the economy is in shambles.

The Korean War Proves Mind Determines Man

At the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War on 27 July 2013, bestselling author John Hollands, recalls South Korea's transformation


Hollands is reminding us in this excerpt that man is determined by the content of his mind.

(...) whilst I was fighting in Korea I often questioned the wisdom of what we were doing. South Korea was governed by a thoroughly corrupt regime headed by an evil tyrant, Syngman Rhee; and the whole country was backward with a terrible reputation for cruelty, especially in the way of executions of political prisoners and their attitude towards prisoners-of-war, or suspect refugees. The rule of thumb was, ‘if in doubt, shoot them’.

Times Free Press Fires Editor for Obama Critique

Iran and Hezbollah Behind the Benghazi Attack?

The US is arming and training the Syrian rebels covertly. Increasingly there are indications that the US ambassador and CIA agents in Benghazi were involved in gun running



According to Alex Jones the fearmongering ‘terror alert’ is nothing more than theater to distract from Benghazi.

UPDATE: Dr. Mark Christian from the Global Faith Institute has an alternative reading of events in the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012: it was not an act of Sunni related terrorism, but a nation state assault by a Hezbollah and Iran related Shia group. (Source) More on this likely hypothesis here.

Limbaugh Tells Conservatives How to Defeat Socialism

Rush Limbaugh talks about the problems Republicans have in defeating the Democrats, even while the country is hanging by a thread



One hour interview of Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

Rather than competing in the marketplace of ideas, the Republicans are appeasing their bullying opponents. That's because they have implicitly accepted the moral stance of their opponents. There may be a imporant lesson here for Conservative parties around the world.
