Abstract
The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market com-
petition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was
no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the
architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control
held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie struc-
ture and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions.
This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for
researchers and policy makers.
Introduction
A common intuition among scholars and in the media sees the global economy as being domi-
nated by a handful of powerful transnational corporations (TNCs). However, this has not been
confirmed or rejected with explicit numbers. A quantitative investigation is not a trivial task
because firms may exert control over other firms via a web of direct and indirect ownership rela-
tions which extends over many countries. Therefore, a complex network analysis [1] is needed in
order to uncover the structure of control and its implications. Recently, economic networks have
attracted growing attention [2], e.g., networks of trade [3], products [4], credit [5, 6], stock prices
[7] and boards of directors [8, 9]. This literature has also analyzed ownership networks [10, 11],
but has neglected the structure of control at a global level. Even the corporate governance litera-
ture has only studied small national business groups [12]. Certainly, it is intuitive that every large
corporation has a pyramid of subsidiaries below and a number of shareholders above. However,
economic theory does not offer models that predict how TNCs globally connect to each other.
Three alternative hypotheses can be formulated. TNCs may remain isolated, cluster in separated
coalitions, or form a giant connected component, possibly with a core-periphery structure. So
far, this issue has remained unaddressed, notwithstanding its important implications for policy
making. Indeed, mutual ownership relations among firms within the same sector can, in some
cases, jeopardize market competition [13, 14].

Is Killing Civilians Part of Israel’s plan?



In-depth Report:
 
 
PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL-CONFLICT-GAZA

Another day, another UN school hit by Israeli shelling in Gaza. Israel’s attack this morning killed at least 16 civilians sheltering at the school and wounded dozens. The casualties figures are expected to rise.

Israel and even most of its critics tell us that the civilian casualties are accidental, caused by Israel’s need to wage its war against Hamas in heavily built-up areas of Gaza. Israel is accused of “disproportionality”, or of recklessness, or of inflicting unfortunate collateral damage.

But here’s another possibility: that the people of Gaza, not just Hamas, are the target. That Israel’s generals don’t see much difference between the two.

Israel’s army is “degrading” – or “mowing the lawn”, in even worse military parlance – Gaza’s ability’s to resist. Not Hamas’ abilities, but Gaza’s. Because the problem lies not with Hamas. Hamas is simply a symptom, of the people of Gaza’s determination to liberate themselves from Israel’s siege.

That is why the power plant was destroyed yesterday. That is why Israel has been starving Gaza for years through its siege, limiting the entry of basic foods and counting the minimum calories people need for bare survival – putting them on a diet, as one senior adviser jokingly termed it. That is why Gaza’s infrastructure is being trashed – the notorious Dahiya doctrine, devised by Israeli generals in 2006 as way to force hostile populations back into the Stone Age, keeping them preoccupied with the essentials of life rather than demanding, or fighting, for their rights.

Israel knows it cannot destroy Hamas’ will to resist without destroying Gaza’s will to resist too. And that is what it looks like we are seeing played out here day-in, day-out. Civilians, it seems, must die to teach Gaza a lesson: you will submit.

Israeli tank strikes Gaza hospital kill 4, scores injured – medics


Please share this story to raise awareness on Israeli war criminals and their crimes against humanity, 25% of the lives that have been ruthlessly lost, are children. They are our future…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Four Palestinian’s have been killed and dozens wounded after an Israeli tank shell hit the third floor of Al-Aqsa hospital in central Gaza, according to a Health Ministry spokesman.

Ashraf Al-Qidra said that the third floor housed an intensive care unit and operating theaters. Other shells had fallen around the hospital, he added, with officials calling on the Red Cross to help evacuate patients.

A doctor at the hospital, Fayez Zidane, told the station that shells hit the third and fourth floor as well as the reception area.

“There is still shelling against the hospital,” he said speaking to AP. He said he found bits of a rocket, presumably from one of the projectiles.

Zidane appealed to the Red Cross and a nearby hospital to send help.

There have been conflicting reports about the number of people injured following the attack. Reuters has put the figure at 16, while AP says 60 have been wounded, including 30 medics.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment. In the past it has accused Hamas Islamist militants of firing rockets from the grounds of Gaza hospitals and of seeking refuge in the buildings.

The Palestinian death toll has now risen above 500, since the Israeli army started its offensive in Gaza on July 8. Gaza health officials put the exact figure at 518, which includes over 100 children.

Meanwhile, Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) has called on Israel to stop shelling in the Gaza Strip, saying it is complicating efforts to provide care. In a statement published on its website Sunday, MSF said, “the majority of the dead and wounded in Gaza are civilians and medical workers are also coming under fire.”

The organization also said it had witnessed two paramedics who had died and two others who were injured whilst trying to rescue wounded from Shujaiyeh. In addition, MSF said, “a clearly identified MSF vehicle escaped an air strike 300 meters away.” It added that Israeli authorities had promised secure movements for the organization from the Erez border crossing to Gaza City “so that an incoming surgical team could be picked up.”

In addition, MSF cited its field coordinator in Gaza, Nicolas Palarus, saying, “United Nations shelters are now overcrowded and hygiene conditions are extremely worrying,” Haaretz reports.

Seven Israelis killed in Gaza in last 24 hours

The IDF death toll from the hostilities in Gaza has risen to 25, with seven Israeli soldiers killed in the last 24 hours, Haaretz reports.

There has also been a major rocket barrage over southern and central Israel, with two rockets intercepted over Tel Aviv.

There were also reports of two terrorist cells infiltrating southern Israel via a tunnel from the Gaza strip on Monday and residents were ordered to remain inside and roads were closed.

The death toll in Gaza has now reached 508 with 3,130 wounded, since the operation began 14 days ago.

Israel maybe committing war crimes in Gaza, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says. Speaking in Geneva, Navi Pillay said house demolitions and the killing of children raise the “strong possibility” that Israel is violating international law.

Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she citied cases of Israeli air strikes and shelling hitting houses and hospitals in the coastal enclave:“These are just a few examples where there seems to be a strong possibility that international humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” she said.

She hit out at both sides concerning their conduct during the conflict, which is now in its 16th day, having started on July 8. Some 643 Palestinians, many of them children and civilians have died in the conflict, including a seven-year-old hit by a shell in southern Gaza early on Wednesday, Reuters reports.

The Israeli army has been accused of targeting civilian areas, as well as using flechette shells during its offensive in Gaza, which can cause widespread harm and death to civilians. Some 29 Israeli soldiers have been killed, including a tank officer shot by a Palestinian sniper early on Wednesday.

“Every one of these incidents must be properly and independently investigated,” Pillay said in some of her strongest comments on the carnage. She also condemned the indiscriminate firing of rockets and mortars by Palestinian militants into Israel and expressed concern at the “rise of incitement for violence against Palestinians by Israeli’s on social media.”

On Monday, a hospital was hit in Gaza, with four people killed and scores of others wounded in the attack. Thirty of the wounded were medics. The International Committee of the Red Cross issued a statement condemning the shelling “in the strongest terms,” Reuters reported. The organization stated that the hospital came under fire at least four times, and life-saving equipment was severely damaged.

A United Nations school, which is helping to shelter displaced Palestinians in the center of Gaza, also came under attack from Israeli fire on Tuesday as a team was inspecting damage from shelling by the Israeli’s on Monday, a UN official said.

The official mentioned that a team, who had been given permission by Israel to enter, were at the school run by the UN in Al-Maghazi, when Israeli tanks resumed their shelling and hit the building.

Speaking at the conference, Israel’s ambassador to the body, Eviatar Manor told the debate that “Israel will destroy Hamas’ military infrastructure.” He also added that “the Gaza residents are not our enemy. Israel is fully committed to international law.” The ambassador also slammed the UN Human Rights Council saying they had“failed to protect the human rights of Israelis,” Haaretz reports.

In response, the Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riad al-Malki urged world powers to end what he called Israel’s impunity, saying, “Israel must be held accountable for its crimes.” His speech was greeted by loud applause.

Harretz reports that the Palestinians and Arab countries have filed a draft to the Human Rights Council, which convened for a special one-day session in Geneva, which includes the establishment of an international commission of inquiry to probe alleged war crimes and violations of international law. The draft does not mention Hamas.

Despite Israel lobbying the Council’s member states to prevent the meeting taking place, the Palestinians managed to get the signatures necessary to hold the meeting.

The US, most of the EU states and additional Western states, including Australia and Canada, are expected to oppose the draft. However, as in other UN bodies, the Palestinians hold an automatic majority which allows them to pass any resolution.

Israel, which accuses the Council of bias, boycotted the Geneva forum for 20 months, resuming cooperation in October. Its main ally the United States, a member state, has also said Israel is unfairly singled out.

Malaysian Airlines MH370 and MH17. A Criminologist Questions: What are the Probabilities? Is it a Mere Coincidence?


Vladimir Putin is to Blame, according to the Mainstream Media

Four months after the vanishing of Malaysia Airlines flight 370, Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was brought down by a surface-to-air missile.

Western Mainstream Media (MSM) hastened–on the basis of very thin evidence joined with the refusal to even mention other evidence–to attribute blame to the “appropriate” party, which in the case of flight 17 happens to be Vladimir Putin.

 Careful observers of the mainstream media processes are well aware that this sort of thing is what we are to expect, and undoubtedly helps explain the very low level of trust people place in MSM institutions.

 Here, of course with the leave of figures such as Anderson Cooper and Barack Obama, we are going to do some of our own thinking about, and analysis of, certain key pieces of evidence.  In so doing, we should not be surprised if we arrive at conclusions different from that which our Ruling Class masters would have us believe.

 First, let’s present the currently prevailing theory as to what happened.  K.T. McFarland, national security analyst at Fox, presents “three possible scenarios” pertaining to the attribution of responsibility.

Of the three “possible” scenarios McFarland presents (and one wonders exactly what scenarios are supposed to be impossible), McFarland (and many others) appears to favor the prospect that pro-Russian rebel separatists are responsible.  The theory is that motive and opportunity coincide in that group better than they do with respect to other potential malfeasants.

 Maybe the separatists are responsible.  But the case is hardly closed, and plenty of evidence that people such as McFarland choose to ignore should be considered as objectively as possible.

First, similar to Malaysia Airlines flight 370, there is evidence that contact with Malaysia Airlines flight 17 was lost in advance of the wayward event. Next, and once more like flight 370, we have evidence that the pilot of Flight 17 actually diverted–purportedly on the basis of a vague sense of being “uncomfortable”–the craft into the dangerous warzone region where it was shot down.

Next, reflect that, on the same day, 55 planes flew over Donetsk just as flight 17 did and that these flight patterns have been in place for some time.

The Normal MH17 Flight Path vs. the Warzone flight path over Donesk Oblast on July 17th

IngoGraph

And here is evidence reported by Zero Hedge that may be very important:

 “While there are various questions that have already emerged from what was supposed to be Ukraine’s “slam dunk” proof confirming Russian rebel involvement in today’s MH-17 tragedy, perhaps one just as gaping question emerges when one looks at what is clearly an outlier flight path in today’s final, and tragic, departure of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.

 Perhaps the best visualization of what the issue is, comes from Vagelis Karmiros who has collated all the recent MH-17 flight paths as tracked by Flightaware and shows that while all ten most recent paths pass safely well south of the Donetsk region, and cross the zone above the Sea of Azov, it was only today’s tragic flight that passed straight overhead Donetsk.”

 The Karmiros evidence could of course be wrong, but can we prove that it is wrong now, and can we be 100% confident that what the MSM tells us is true?

 And, if it’s wrong, why hasn’t the Karmiros evidence been refuted?  The answer to that is that it’s probably because it hasn’t received any discussion.  Why not?

 Next, here are a few other curious tidbits.  The flight 17 crash shares an anniversary with the demise of TWA 800, which AT’s own Jack Cashill has compellingly argued was, in fact, brought down by a missile on July 17, 1996 and subsequently covered up by the US government.  And, the maiden flight of flight 17 occurred in 1997 on the date of, you guessed it, July 17.

[Moreover Russia's last ruling monarch of the Romanov family Tsar Nicholas II, together with his wife Tsarina Alexandra and their five children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei were executed on 17 July 1918. Subliminal message to Putin? No doubt it's another "coincidence"]

 So “17s” are everywhere.  To be sure, though, each of the items in the last paragraph is easily ranged under the heading “coincidence.”

But before we do that, there is one more piece of evidence to consider.  Upon having done so, we will synthesize all of the evidence by thinking in terms of probabilities.

 There is evidence at YouTube that seems to indicate that CNN recently used footage of a helicopter downing in Syria and represented it as depicting the downing of a helicopter, by pro-Russian forces, in the Ukraine (go to 2:39 for a photo comparison).

Now to the probabilistic summary.

Reasoning with probabilities is notoriously tricky, so we have to proceed carefully.  Fortunately, a simple coin flip analogy can be employed.  If you flip a fair 50/50 coin twice, four possible sequences can occur, and each has an equal likelihood of occurring {HH, HT, TH, TT}.  The equal likelihood of the possible sequences flows from the standard supposition that the coin flips are independent of one another, which is simply to say that an H on flip 1 says nothing about whether flip 2 will produce an H or a T.

The analogy with MH 17 is as follows.  If five months ago (before the vanishing of MH 370) you had contemplated the likelihood that the next two major airline disasters to receive massive global coverage would each involve Malaysia Airlines, you would have been justified in concluding that the likelihood was very low indeed.  By analogy, it would be like specifying only an {H, H} sequence as the outcome ahead of time (a {T, T} sequence would represent the same airline as having been involved, but not Malaysia Airlines).

 Now what the Western mainstream media are implicitly arguing is that MH 370 and MH 17 have no real link and are only connected with massive airline disasters in recent months by chance; they’re saying that it could just as well have been any two flights so linked (by analogy, {H, H} or {H, T} or {T, H} or {T, T}).  If this argument is valid, nothing at all should be made at all of the fact that Malaysia Airlines was involved in both instances, since all possible sequences are accounted for and no sequence is much more likely than any other.

And yet, the evidence presented in this article suggests that MH 370 and MH 17 are linked in ways that might not be due to chance.  Both MH 370 and MH 17 appear to have lost communicative contact, and both appear to have veered off course on very unusual routes.  How many aircraft of other airlines have done so in recent months, never mind how many of the 55 aircraft over Donetsk did so on July 17?  How many aircraft other than MH 17 had their inaugural voyage on the date of July 17?

These considerations suggest that, in fact, in the cases of MH 370 and MH 17 we might not be dealing with a “fair coin.”

In turn, the following very reasonable question presents itself: was Malaysia Airlines in particular targeted on July 17, and, if so, what ragtag rebel would have even been in a position to do that (especially given the route alteration, if true), and, if so, how did they accomplish it?

 One suspects that the MSM will completely ignore these considerations and will likely coalesce, for several reasons, around an account that blames the episode on an accidental discharge that Putin can nonetheless be blamed for given the hostilities in the region.

However that may be, one thing is almost certainly true: the likelihood that Western MSM would in any way, shape, or form discuss evidence implicating U.S. aligned interests in the demise of MH 17 is virtually nil, no matter how compelling such evidence might be.

Is a Pet Dog Really Killed by a Police Officer Every 98 Minutes?


Meter readers and postal employees are equipped with mace to protect themselves from dog attacks. In the past, so were police officers or they called in animal control officers from the local shelter.

But, mace was replaced by tasers for people, and now guns are being used on our pets. \

Take a look at the dogs in the video below, those weren’t vicioucs dogs trained to attack, they were family pets doing what comes natural – protecting the pack.

Where’s the outrage, why are we allowing this to reach epidemic proportions?? {~A~}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A new documentary promises to shed light on the size and scope of America’s under-covered “puppycide” epidemic.

In November 2012, police officers in Commerce City, Colorado, received a call about a large dog roaming free in a subdivision. Unbeknownst to the police or the caller, Chloe, a large, three-year-old mixed breed, was not an intruder. A woman in the neighborhood was dog-sitting for a friend, and Chloe had flown the coup.

Eventually, police and an animal control officer cornered the anxious dog in an open garage. A cell phone video shows them debating what to do as Chloe sat and watched. Eventually, one of the officers tasered Chloe. She fell over, then began to run away. As Chloe attempted to flee, an animal control employee snagged her with a catch pole. That should have been the end of the story, except Commerce City Police Officer Robert Price proceeded to shoot Chloe four times with his service weapon, alarming the animal control worker and killing the dog.

Cops shooting dogs when they arguably don’t need to is called “puppycide” by opponents (naturally). Animal rights activists and civil libertarians say these shootings are widespread, a result of officers having little-to-no training on how to deal with dogs.

It’s certainly true that some of these shootings have become national news, from Berwyn Heights, Maryland, Mayor Cheye Calvo’s black labs, to Leon Rosby’s Rottweiler, to Jonathan Whitworth’s corgi.

But it’s not clear how often this kind of thing really happens. There are no state databases, and it’s not a category in municipal crime reports. Neither the FBI nor the Bureau of Justice Statistics collect data on dog shootings. The U.S. Postal Service knows exactly how many mail carriers were bitten by dogs in 2012, but no one seems to know how many pet dogs were killed by law enforcement.

Filmmakers Patrick Reasonover and Michael “Oz” Ozias hope to nail down a rough estimate as part of their research for a documentary called Puppycide.

“We’re planning on doing a lot of Freedom of Information Act requests,” Reasonover says. “We think it’s happening way more than the statistic we have.” That statistic, which sits at the top of Puppycide‘s kickstarter page: “Every 98 minutes, a dog is shot by law enforcement.” Activists came up with that number after tallying accounts of dog-shootings from news stories across the country.

Reasonover realizes his approach will be time-consuming. “We think we can get the data by looking at firearm discharge reports. There might not be a box on reports that says, ‘Check here if you shot a dog,’ but they will probably include information like, ‘I discharged my firearm at a dog.’ We’d like to show the scale.”

Petsadvisor.com, a major critic of law enforcement violence toward dogs, has released an infographic showing the opposite statistic: How many cops have been killed by dogs.

Reasonover and Ozias are approaching the issue with a wide lens, looking at both policing practices and the ever-evolving role of pets in the American home. “For sure there are cops out there who think this is part of the business and this is how it should be,” Oz tells me. “But there are others who think things can be different and should be different. A lot of them aren’t presently backed with training or support on how to solve the problem.”

The duo are funding their efforts with a Kickstarter campaign, and have released a pretty devastating demo featuring interviews with pet owners whose dogs have been killed by police, as well as former police officers and animal rights activists.

“People who see their dogs that way see cops as evil villains wantonly murdering their dogs,” Reasonover says. “These police officers, though, can’t say they’re sorry, even if they regret it, because that creates liability. So what activists are saying is look, you guys need training. That’s another big area that we’re looking at. Show both sides of the story.”

The Ethnic Cleansing of Gaza – A Requiem for Palestine – Max Igan – July 20, 2014


There are no words to describe the unprecedented slaughter and brutality being aimed at 1.8million defenseless and besieged Palestinian refugees by the Zionist Terrorists of Nazi Israel in the 2014 Ethnic Cleansing of the Gaza Strip. What we are seeing is an unprecedented bloodbath. The brutal and sadistic murder of people, all civilian, mostly women and children and all innocent of any crime. These innocents are being slaughtered using experimental weapons that maim horribly. Banned chemical weapons, Gas bombs, white phosphorous, DIME Munitions, Fletchette bombs, the use of each, constituting a war crime. Each one of these weapons are being used on children and each are designed to inflict maximum pain and suffering. These exotic weapons are being wielded by a sadistic terrorist army of blood crazed psychopaths who seem to view Palestinians with utter contempt and who are bent on killing as many of them as they can, and in as brutal a manner as they are able. And it is happening while the entire world watches.

There simply are no words.

And so the last remaining piece of beautiful Palestine and its gentle, almost childlike people is stolen and raped by the Terrorist forces of the Khazar usurpers who have hijacked the holy land of Israel and tricked the world into supporting their cult of death. Modern day Israel and the Khazar terrorists who now control it, are indeed the Synagogue of Satan, unbridled in its blood and glory and the greatest threat to life and freedom that mankind has ever faced.

Israel and its terrorist government MUST be condemned and held for war crimes for its ethnic cleansing of the Gaza strip. AS MUST ANY GOVERNMENT THAT IS IN SUPPORT OF THIS GENOCIDE!

“The Tears of Gaza” an URGENT message from Max Igan


YESTERDAY I RECEIVED THIS URGENT MESSAGE AND PLEA FOR HELP, FROM MAX IGAN:

Folks, we need top spam the entire internet to let people know what is happening. Every single social media outlet, blog or forum you know needs this information. If you are unsure what to write or are lost for words, I have prepared a post below that contains most of the relevant information. If you have something to add to it that you feel should be included. Please feel free to add it to the text.

 THIS INFORMATION NEEDS TO GO EVERYWHERE!!!

 Please help make it a reality and share freely, thank you!

Max

 The bottom line is that if you support the current Israeli incursion into Gaza,

then you are someone who supports ethnic cleansing

To support the state of Israel in this so called “war” is to support this:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10204210879178325&set=vb.1417549275&type=2&theater

There simply are no words to describe the unprecedented slaughter and level brutality being aimed at 1.8million besieged Palestinian refugees by the Zionist Terrorists of Israel in this 2014 Ethnic Cleansing of the Gaza Strip. What we are seeing is an unprecedented bloodbath. The brutal and sadistic murder of people, all civilian, mostly women and children and all innocent of any crime. And these people are not just being killed, these innocents are being brutally slaughtered and hideously wounded using experimental weapons that maim horribly. These are the wounds of nightmares. Wounds that doctors have never seen before. Banned chemical and new experimental weapons, the use of each, constituting a war crime. Each one of these weapons are being used on CHILDREN, and each are designed to inflict MAXIMUM PAIN AND SUFFERING. These exotic weapons are being wielded by a sadistic army of what can only be psychopaths, and who seem bent on killing as many of Palestinians as they can, and in as brutal and hideous a manner as they are able. And it is happening while the entire world watches.

There simply are no words.

Make no mistake folks THIS IS TERRORISM!

Israel and its terrorist government MUST be condemned and held for war crimes for its ethnic cleansing of the Gaza strip. AS MUST ANY GOVERNMENT THAT IS IN SUPPORT OF THIS GENOCIDE!

 The Use of Banned Chemical and Experimental Weaponry

The weapons being used in the current Israeli incursion into the Gaza strip easily confirms that the battle plan of the Netanyahu government towards the civilians in Gaza is Genocide. Pure and simple. Israel wants no survivors from this one. It wants no witnesses to its crimes. Each weapon used in this slaughter is designed to kill with maximum damage, maximum brutality and maximum pain and suffering. What Israel is doing right now, is truly the most hideous of war crimes of the modern age… Google these terms: (there’s more but standard fare for this incursion is) “DIME Munitions”. “Flechette Bombs” and “White Phosphorus”. Google all of those terms and see what we are dealing with here. DIME and Flechette munitions don’t just kill, they literal shred the victim in the most gruesome and painful manner imaginable. Look at these weapons and what they do and understand the pure evil of these weapons… weapons such as these could only be invented by a psychopath for only the most evil psychopathic mind could dream them up… and then clearly understand that this is what the forces of “we don’t target civilians” Israel is using against the imprisoned, impoverished and defenseless women and the 900,000 children of the Gaza strip as you read this message.

 THIS IS A WAR CRIME!

Some reports from dear friends on the ground. A girl 22 and from a young guy of 20 who is a university student:

The Israeli tanks shelled on Shuhada’a AlAqssa hospital killing at least 4 Palestinians who were getting treatment in the hospital. Another estimated 40 injuries where reported. The operating rooms and Oxygen chambers has stopped working after getting destroyed in this attack, putting the life of hundreds of patients in danger !! This is the third hospital in Gaza the Israel attacks !! Unbelievable – Noor Harazeen in Gaza

Massacres ! The Israeli occupation forces are now randomly targeting civilians, latest attack was when the Israeli warplanes raided on a building killing 11 people most of them are children ! Only today Israel killed 90 Palestinians, bringing up the death toll in Gaza to 555 and more than 3200 injuries reported – Noor Harazeen

Good morning from Gaza, we were confirmed that the Israeli tanks targeted a UN school !! I mean seriously were should the people in GAZA evacuate ?! Hospitals have been targeted, mosques too and now the UN schools !! can someone please help us and propose a safe Place where the Israeli forces won’t attack ?! – Noor Harazeen
Photo \ Israel attacking UN school with “white phosphors bombs”

Today i went to middle Gaza strip to show you the latest Israeli targets. Please watch and share widely to expose the Israeli forces claims of ” NOT TARGETING CIVILIANS “. We went to a hospital, UNRWA school, mosque and a residential building – Noor Harazeen

Today i went out to the streets facing all danger, to show you the latest Israeli targets. Please watch and share widely to expose the Israeli forces claims of ” NOT TARGETING CIVILIANS “. We went to a hospital, UNRWA school, mosque and a residential building – Noor Harazeen

 Latest update from a friend in gaza, a 20 year old university student….

People in my area have now fled their homes. A mosque demolished as an airstrike hit it. The nearby houses partly damaged due to this airstrike. Al-Aqsa hospital was hit by tank shelling, 5 killed and tens injured; doctors and patients were among them. Some houses were directly targeted. A UN school was also partly damaged. Water containers and pipes were damaged there. No power nor water yet. I personally have now reached my relatives’ home were the shelling is not that heavy. My family have fled to other relatives’ home. Now, five families are in the same house; 30 members approximately, in a very small house. mostly children and women. The situation is getting worse and worse. People are fleeing their homes by the thousands but there is nowhere to hide, no safe place. All who do not leave are being massacred by Israeli forces. Only civilians are dying due to this barbarous offensive. Now they are dropping gas bombs on us, this gas smells strange, does anyone know what it is? Please pray for the people of Palestine.

https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/articles/middle-east/12920-letter-from-gaza-by-a-norwegian-doctor

Killing masses of people, mostly women and children (around 60% of the population in Gaza is children in such a brutal fashion is unacceptable under any circumstances and the State of Israel MUST be held accountable for this war crime. If you have that little regard for life that you support this then you are one very sick person.

 Make no mistake, THIS IS TERRORISM!

This is indeed terrorism of the most brutal, the most evil and the most psychopathic kind. We should all pause to consider that there has been a gradual militarization of the worlds police forces to an alarming degree in recent years, and if a WAR CRIME of this magnitude and level of brutality is allowed to be carried out in 2014 by a democratic nation and stand unchallenged, then make no mistake about it, the way of Palestine will be the way of the world.

Gaza under attack by zionist terrorists, 2009 Operation “Cast Lead” … In a touch of the Twilight Zone, defending yourself from these constant Israeli terror attacks, or resisting the brutal Israeli occupation of Palestine in any way at all, will get you labelled as a “terrorist”

The National Board of Directors of Veterans for Peace will deliver a letter to Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer this afternoon. The letter states, “As veterans who have witnessed the horror of war, we are deeply outraged by the state of Israel’s slaughter of many innocent civilians in Gaza. The military assault against children, women and men, by air, by sea and now by land, is a clear violation of international laws of war and of human rights. More than 300 Palestinians have been murdered, almost all of them civilians, nearly a quarter of them children. Thousands are wounded, including nearly 1,000 children.

“Veterans For Peace joins millions of people all around the globe who are shocked by this vicious, one-sided slaughter. We understand the huge injustice of the Israeli occupation. Palestinians have been ethnically cleansed from their homes and forced to live in the Occupied West Bank, or in the open-air prison that is Gaza.

“Mr. Ambassador, please remind the government of Israel of the billions of dollars in aid that is provided to Israel by the United States. Veterans For Peace will push for an end to all military aid to Israel until such time as the Israeli occupation gives way to real peace negotiations based on the human rights of all the people concerned.”

NBC Removed Its Reporter After He Saw Israel Murdering Kids


Even tho Mohyeldin was removed by execs, he still tried to get the story out on msm, only with limited success before it was suppressed. Definitely ties in with Andrew Bartzis’ predictions last year of MSM reporters stepping down from their jobs and speaking truth. It’s sad that it takes something as horrific as the bloodbath in GAZA to wake-up just one reporter, but he was also new to the warzone – are the seasoned reporters too anesthetized to feel their conscious? What’s it gonna take to wake “them” up? This story needs to go viral…please share freely. http://www.exposingtruth.com/nbc-removed-reporter-witnessed-israel-murdering-kids/

Mahalo! Annette

After witnessing the killing of four Palestinian boys of the same family by Israeli forces on a the beach of Gaza, as they played soccer, NBC News correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin (who has received advanced glorification for his courageous and innovative coverage of the war) was ordered by NBC to leave Gaza without delay. Mohyeldin was kicking a soccer ball around with the boys literally minutes before they were killed.

This video contains graphic content

Mohyeldin is a longtime reporter who covered many Middle East events. During the 2008-2009 Israeli offensive on Gaza; he was one of the only foreign journalists reporting from Gaza.

He made many reports about Gaza and Israeli occupation, sparking criticism from some supporters of the Israeli offensive. Back in 2008 and 2009, when he worked for Al Jazeera, Mohyeldin and his colleague Sherine Tadros were the only foreign journalists on the ground in Gaza as Israel killed 1,400 people in what it called “Operation Cast Lead.”

n-AYMAN-MOHYELDIN-large570

A source inside NBC said that the executives claimed the decision came due to “security concerns,” as Israel started its ground invasion. But soon after, NBC sent another correspondent, Richard Engel, along with an American producer who has never been to Gaza and speaks no Arabic, into Gaza to cover the ongoing Israeli offensive (both Mohyeldin and Engel speak Arabic). A source also told the Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone that executives were motivated by those concerns.

Mohyeldin reported on the savage killing by Israeli gunboats of the four young boys (who were between the ages of 9 and 11 and all from the same family) as they played football on a beach in Gaza. He spoke about the moments before their death and posted many frightening details on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, including the victims’ names and ages, photographs he took of their suffering parents, and a video of one of their mothers as she learned about the death of her young son.

He interviewed one of the wounded boys at the hospital shortly before being operated on. He then appeared on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, where he described what he witnessed in Gaza.

“Moutaz Bakr, 1 of the boys who survived #Israeli shelling, was shaking a broken arm, blood shot eyes, says he saw 3 of his friends killed.” – Ayman Mohyeldin (@AymanM) July 16, 2014

Democracy Now spoke to Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, who exposed that the decision to pull Mohyeldin from Gaza and remove him from reporting on the situation came from NBC executive David Verdi. According to Democracy Now, NBC News did not respond to Democracy Now!’s repeated requests for getting more details about its decision.

“The way that this came to my attention was that there are people inside NBC News, including some very recognizable and high-profile journalists, who were very angry that, first of all, when NBC News with Brian Williams reported on the killing of those four boys on the beach, instead of having their journalist who made this event known to the world and who witnessed it firsthand, Ayman, report on it, they instead had Richard Engel in Tel Aviv do the reporting, and Ayman never appeared at all on the Nightly News broadcast. But that, you can chalk up to sort of standard network news machinations about who’s a bigger star and who’s more senior and the like.” Greenwald said.

Mohyeldin‘s Twitter feed has been inactive for a few days since NBC decision, although he provided his eyewitness account on the Today show, he was conspicuously absent from that evening’s broadcast of NBC Nightly News. But only days after NBC pulled him from Gaza, Ayman Mohyeldin will return to the region as a correspondent, NBC said on Friday, July 18.

Despite the fact that the real reasons behind NBC decision are still unknown, Mohyeldin wrote on his twitter: “Thanks for all the support. I’m returning to #Gaza to report. Proud of NBC’s continued commitment to cover the #Palestinian side of the story.”

Israel has been attacking Gaza barbarity for over 10 consecutive days, murdering more than 350 people and injuring more than 3000 others. UN reports said 77% of the victims in Gaza are civilian and defenseless people. As the offensive continues, these numbers will unfortunately continue to rise.

Benjamin Fulford – July 21, 2014: Bush Jr., Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior nazionists to be arrested soon


Note: I usually take Fulford’s posts with a grain of salt, but this one sums up what I’ve been observing with the “big picture” fairly accurately. Although I must admit I gave absolutely no attention to the latest Malaysian Airliner disaster,  because I immediately sensed it was another false flag event created to harvest fear and create diversions; basically just another smoke and mirrors game aimed at  fueling war with Russia. 

So, I missed the latest “intel”  that the cabal had “allegedly” loaded the plane up with corpses, then shot it down over Russia..ROTHFLMAO at the thought of that scenario! If that’s true, then it shows the sheer desperation of these rats on their sinking ship.

Here’s a FB excerpt on Ben’s post from Lance White: The Galactic History Discussion Group

I don’t usually follow Ben’s posts, but read this one out of curiosity; though there’s no way to know how accurate the intel might be, it is at least “a juicy read”. An example how the “factions” (remember your G.H.) are duking it out at the end of the card game. According to the GH timetable, of no time, 2014 is “the end” of the window, when all the players have to put their cards on the table, prior to humanity’s “graduation”.

The arrest of nazionist mass murderers like George Bush Jr. and Benjamin Netanyahu and their fellow cabalists is imminent, according to Mossad and other sources. These criminals and their fellow top cabalists have already been banned from traveling to over 180 countries and soon will be banned from traveling outside of their jail cells, the sources said.

The downing of remote controlled Israeli owned so-called “Malaysian Airlines flight MH17,” filled with dead and decomposing bodies, was one dirty trick too many for the nazionists and a turning point against them has now been reached within the world’s secret agencies and governments, according to multiple sources.

What we first saw in Syria were are now seeing in the Ukraine; a failed attempt to use a manufactured incident to start a war. The nazionists created “Sarin gas attacks on civilians” in Syria and now “dead HIV scientists” in the Ukraine and used it to try to fool the US military into attacking. Only this time in the Ukraine, even more so than was the case with Syria, nobody is taking the bait.

We can see this in the nazionist controlled corporate propaganda media “attack Russia” PR campaign. For example, UK nazionist puppet Prime Minister David Cameron has asked German PM Angela Merkel and French President Francois to press for more sanctions against Russia’s Vladimir Putin but this is just a PR stunt according to MI5 sources. Cameron had to do that because he was being blackmailed by a nazionist media baron with threats to publicize his cocaine habit and his wife’s heroin addiction, the sources continued.

In any case, in the past such a public campaign by nazionist puppet leaders and the corporate propaganda media was used to condition the masses to accept an up-coming military event. Now though, nobody is buying it. No army is ready to do their bidding and even most the hired goons have stopped listening to them.

Furthemore, the internet and social media part of the nazionist campaign to vilify Russia “has been a total wipeout,” say sources in MI5 and other agencies. For example: the U-Tube presented as proof of rebel and Russian cooperation was shown to have date stamps from before the shootdown, the tweets from “a Spanish air traffic controller in Ukraine” actually came from London , the internet Putin assassination angle was fake ( Putin is too smart to overfly Ukraine) and the film being shown of the plane being shot down was from the daytime even though the plane was supposed to have been shot down at night. They are clearly losing the plot.

This entire “Malaysian plane” incident is being managed out of the State Department and by the Rand corporation, according to US based CIA sources.

Now Germany and France are so disgusted by the nazionist stunts being run out of Washington D.C. and Tel Aviv, they have decided to join the BRICS alliance, according to CIA sources in Europe. The Germans and French are systematically purging their governments of nazionist agents.

And for good reason. The fake Malaysian plane filled with bodies from the morgue stunt was the nazionist response to the announcement last week by the BRICS nations they had set up a development bank and a financial stabilization fund as a way to by-pass the cabal controlled World Bank and IMF. Think about it, here we have a group supported by over 188 nations announcing a plan to peacefully build economic infrastructure and the US and Israeli nazionists puppet governments react by shooting down a plane. Huh?

The other reactions were to brutalize the Gaza strip and keep pumping up a fake immigrant crisis in the US.

Furthermore, the WDS was also sent a whole new series of threats by these nazionists thugs last week. According to the latest threats “World War 3 has started,” the “US armed forces are ready to invade Russia,” etc. Do not believe it for a minute. As mentioned before, the armed forces of Russia, China, the United States and elsewhere have already come to an agreement to never let themselves be fooled into starting another world war.

Also, the campaign to rebrand the Muslim Brotherhood as ISIS is falling apart as the ever more ridiculous pronouncements coming out of ISIS via Jerusalem are becoming a joke. Check out this link for an example:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iraq/10971080/Jihadi-Vogue-magazine-lampoons-Iraqs-Islamic-State-warriors.html

What we are witnessing is clearly the end game for the nazionists. Let us recap some of the big changes that have taken place in the campaign to oust these psychopathic killers from the top levels of world power. The Queen of the Netherlands plus the Kings of Spain and Belgium have resigned, the top Warburg family member committed suicide, Richard Rockefeller died, Senator J. Rockefeller resigned, pope malevolent resigned, 200 nazi US military officers have been fired, former French President Sarkozy was arrested and now, last week 660 pedophiles were arrested in the UK. The Vatican has also fired over 400 pedophiles and is continuing a major purge of the Catholic church. The Vatican bank, which was used by the cabal to bribe world leaders, has shut down over 3000 corrupt accounts.

We also received an e-mail last week from a source in a major charitable foundation who said “Bush Sr. passed away on Friday apparently from food poisoning, I hear bad fish. This has been confirmed via his personal security. It should hit the news sometime this week.” However, subsequently he was trotted out for a photograph in a local newspaper near his family’s estate in Maine.

http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20140715-NEWS-140719848

In the picture nazionist Fuhrer Bush Sr. appears to be resorting to his old trick of acting senile, which he is not. Bush is not going to avoid arrest by pretending to be a poor senile old man; he is one of history’s worst mass murderers and will face justice, you can count on it.

The slow unraveling of the nazionist stealth takeover of the United States will continue its now unstoppable path. The Zionist brainwashed slave colony known as Israel will also be freed. If the so-called Jews (the word did not exist until the 19th century) study the history of Babylon they will found out that circumcision was historically something that was done to the males of defeated slave races. The Europeans who have been brainwashed into thinking they came from ancient Judea will be set free. The world as a whole is well along in the process of being freed from Babylonian debt slavery.

There is expected to be a lot going on this autumn after a summer lull. Hopefully, if we all push for it, we will finally have or fall of the Berlin wall, or fall of the Babylon Fed Ziggurat, type of event in the US then.

An FBI Counterterrorism Agent Tracked Me Down Because I Took a Picture of This


Note: Well, it’s about time to get our camera’s out and take photo’s of whatever we please, this terrorism nonsense has gone way too far. Peaceful non-compliance and taking action to Nullify the NSA, as well as corrupt governments and their kangaroo courts (which was foreclosed on in UCC court in Dec 2012 by OPPT trustees), is the path to reclaiming our freedom from debt slavery and a fascist police  state ruled by an authoritarian government. 

The most frustrating thing about stories like this is lack of media exposure, if the average American knew about situations like this they’d be marching the streets of Washington DC tomorrow with pitchforks, torch’s and possibly even a few guillotines. How big of a story is it gonna take to get mass media coverage and wake people up simultaneously? What will it take to get Americans, Australians and British off the fence? Most people are keenly aware that things just aren’t right….they just don’t feel empowered to take action, or don’t know where to begin.

That’s easy, just go within and ask for guidance. Then find a cause your passionate about and take steps to get involved in making a difference for your local community. It’s all in embodying a winning attitude of “I CAN accomplish whatever I set my mind to”.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

By James Prigoff at 10:08am

This is a statement from one of the plaintiffs speaking at Thursday’s press conference announcing the ACLU’s lawsuit challenging the government’s controversial Suspicious Activity Reporting program.

Good morning. My name is James Prigoff. I am 86 years old and a retired senior corporate executive, having been president of a Levi Strauss division and previously the senior vice president of the Sara Lee Corporation in Chicago. I am also a professional photographer – in fact, I have been a photographer for most of my life. My specialty is photographing murals, graffiti art, and other community public art. I am the co-author of three books utilizing my photographs, one of which, Spraycan Art, has sold over 200,000 copies. My photographs appear in countless other publications and my photography has been exhibited at the Smithsonian in Washington and in many other galleries. I have lectured on photography and public art in museums, universities, and venues worldwide.

I have never had an experience like I had when attempting to photograph the “Rainbow Swash” outside Boston in 2004. Let me explain.

The Rainbow Swash is an iconic piece of public art near Boston painted on the circumference of a 140-foot high liquefied natural gas storage tank in 1971 and repainted in 1992 at an adjacent site. It is actually one of the largest copyrighted pieces of art in the world. The original artist was Korita Kent.

I went to Dorchester, Mass., to photograph it, but before I could take a picture, I was confronted by two security guards who came through their gate and told me I could not because the tank was on private property. I pointed out that I, being well outside the fenced area, was not on private property – but they insisted I leave. If one goes to Wikipedia there are number of excellent close-up shots for the entire world to see.

A few months later, I found a business card on the front door of my home in Sacramento from Agent A. Ayaz of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, asking me to call him. One of my neighbors, an elderly woman, told me that two men wearing suits had come to her door to ask her about me, her neighbor.

When I called Agent Ayaz, he asked if I had been in Boston recently. At that moment I realized that the security guards at the Rainbow Swash site must have taken down the rental car license plate number and reported me to a law enforcement agency. I never gave the guards any information about myself, so I must have been traced across country via my rental car record.

So, consider this: A professional photographer taking a photo of a well-known Boston landmark is now considered to be engaged in suspicious terrorist activity?

I lived through the McCarthy era, so I know how false accusations, surveillance, and keeping files on innocent people can destroy their careers and lives. I am deeply troubled that the SAR program may be recreating that same climate of false accusation and fear today.

Photography is an important part of my life, and I plan to keep photographing public art and public places that contain WPA murals and other architectural sites – as I have been doing for 69 years. Why have my artistic pursuits landed me in a national database potentially linking me to “terrorist” activities? There is no reason for it. This program must be stopped.

Red Ice Insight – “Anchorman 2″ Review & The Politics of Will Ferrell


Smart breakdown and analysis, thought provoking review on the state of Hollywood entrainment, from Red Ice Creations…although what they identify as socialism in America, would be better termed as fascism. It’s always interesting to get a foreigners perspective on American mores`, trends and political views. Those looking in from outside the box, often have a better view of the bigger picture.

Henrik and Lana analyze the propaganda found within the movie Anchorman 2. They’ll also examine the actor Will Ferrell, his double standards, and his Funny or Die posse that includes producer Judd Apatow and writer/producer Adam McKay. What is the purpose behind the progressive’s politically correct agenda pushed in Hollywood entertainment?

This Criminal Act: Navy Nurse First to Refuse to Carry Out Brutal Gitmo Force-Feedings


“I have come to the decision that I refuse to participate in this criminal act.”

Is this the beginning of a wave? Will conscience finally dissolve the big con that keeps humans from connecting with their hearts and each other?

I wonder: was this nurse then fired? How could they not fire him and hope to keep their torturous ball rolling? Maybe they just slammed him in with all the others, called his refusal “terrorism,” and ordered him to be force-fed when he too, refused to eat. 

If so, imagine: will his former companion nurses continue to follow orders? Will they try to force-feed the one very one who showed them how to pop through the Matrix? And if so, can they look him in the eye while doing so? I’m reminded of both Snowden and Manning: how they rest clear with their consciences, and so can withstand the kind of isolation and lack of freedom that most of us fear so greatly that we keep ourselves from following the “still small voice” of our own soul’s directive.

In the first known instance of U.S. military conscience objection at Guantánamo, a male Navy nurse has refused to continue participating in the forced and often brutal tube feedings of hunger striking Gitmo detainees, who consider the practice torture. News of the action by a reported 40-year old Latino captain came from the London-based Reprieve lawyer for Syrian hunger striker Abu Wael Dhiab, who has already been cleared for transfer and is challenging the force-feeding policy in federal court. Diab described the nurse’s gradual evolution over several months of “very compassionate” treatment, saying, “Once he saw with his own eyes that what he was told was contrary to what was actually taking place here, he decided he could not do it anymore.” At the peak of the hunger strike last year, over 100 detainees were refusing to eat with almost half being force-fed; the prison has stopped releasing numbers. The practice remains in legal limbo after a judge initially agreed it was torture and then reversed herself, with another hearing set for this summer. Last year, rapper Mos Def memorably decided to undergo it to see for himself. He didn’t last long. Watch if you can.

“I have come to the decision that I refuse to participate in this criminal act.” – the nurse reportedly announcing his refusal.

Scientific Frauds, Academic Gangsters, and the Khazarian Theory RevisitedScientific Frauds, Academic Gangsters, and the Khazarian Theory Revisited


 

…by Jonas E. Alexis

Veterans Today

Margot O'Toole

We have written at least four articles over the past seven months discussing the moral and intellectual inadequacy of the widely held theory that Jewish behavior is genetic.

We have also seen how geneticists like Harry Ostrer have deliberately fudged data to pursue their own ideological agenda and to make sweeping assertions about behavior and moral responsibility.[1]

This did not really surprise me at all. For some scientists, ideology is prior to real research. Some scientists would even magically summon evidence out of thin air so that they could preserve and cherish their preconceived notions.

What if the so-called evidence is wild and ridiculous? It doesn’t matter. For some, the essential issue is that if the “evidence” seems to support their ideology, then it passes the “scientific” test.

Those scientists usually fudge data when no one is watching over their shoulders. Modern psychiatry is riddled with this practice.[2] Here are some glaring examples.

In 1991, the Chicago Tribune came out with a report entitled, “Institute: Gene Study Data Faked.” The so-called “gene study” was produced by Jewish molecular biologist David Baltimore, who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1975.[3]

The Baltimore affair is a long and sad story and we have much to cover in this article. Let us just summarize the story.

Margot O’Toole, a 38-year-old immunologist and post-doctorate fellow at MIT, actually discovered a deliberate fudging by her supervisor Thereza Imanishi-Kari, who was working with Baltimore. O’Toole asked Baltimore to retract.

Baltimore refused. Instead, he called O’Toole “a disgruntled postdoctoral fellow.”[4] O’Toole was immediately removed from her research position and was unable to find job anywhere. She recounted,

“I was devastated. I had tried for so long to become a scientist, only to find out it was just a board game.”[5]

O’Toole, who was born in Dublin and came to America at the age of 14, probably did not know that questioning the powers that be in America is a code red.  O’Toole’s mother, after hearing about the news, said:

“It was like seeing an eagle flying, and then someone clipped her wings.”[6]

Thereza Imanish-Kari

This was not an exaggeration, for O’Toole was a rising star. She graduated from Brandeis University in 1973, got a Ph.D. in cellular immunology from Tufts, and joined the MIT lab in 1985, which was then supervised by Thereza Imanishi-Kari, one of the key players who actually fudged the data.

All her career came to an abrupt halt because she did not keep her mouth shut. Late historian of molecular biology Horace Freeland Judson noted that “the Baltimore affair epitomizes, and on a grand scale, the arrogance of power.”[7]

But that the story did not end there:

“Walter Stewart, a self-appointed watchdog of scientific inquiry at the National Institutes of Health, obtained a copy of the disputed lab notes from O’Toole and brought the matter to the attention of Michigan Rep.

“John Dingell, the powerful chairman of the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. During three subsequent congressional hearings, Dingell was deluged with letters from scientists accusing him of conducting a witch hunt.

“However, Secret Service tests of the ink and paper used in Ishimani-Kari’s notes indicated that she had later inserted crucial data to cover up the original fabrications.

“At long last O’Toole was gloriously vindicated. Last month an NIH draft report censured the research, criticized Baltimore and called O’Toole’s actions ‘heroic.’

“O’Toole, moreover, has resumed her career as a scientist, working as a cancer researcher at the Genetics Institute in Cambridge, Mass. Her dismay with Baltimore, who has retracted the infamous paper but has yet to apologize to her, has softened. ”[8]

Yet Baltimore and his coauthor Thereza Imanishi-Kari never got dethroned from their position.


 At the end of 2012, biological psychologist Pete Etchells of Bath Spa University and epidemiologist Suzi Gage reported in the British newspaper the Guardian,

David Baltimore

“Science is broken. Psychology was rocked recently by stories of academics making up data, sometimes overshadowing whole careers…

A recent paper in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that since 1973, nearly a thousand biomedical papers have been retracted because someone cheated the system.

“That’s a massive 67% of all biomedical retractions. And the situation is getting worse – last year, Nature reported that the rise in retraction rates has overtaken the rise in the number of papers being published.”[9]

Evolutionary psychologist Marc D. Hauser of Harvard is our next example. Hauser is author of Moral Minds: How Nature Designed our Universal Sense of Right and Wrong.

Hauser spent much of his career arguing that the notion of right and wrong is simply a product of evolution.

Yet Hauser was found guilty of eight counts of scientific misconduct.[10] This actually stunned his colleagues and supervisors, who thought that he was on the path of discovering something in primate behavior and animal cognition. After all, he was viewed as “a rising star for his explorations into cognition and morality…”[11]

Yet Hauser’s dream came to an abrupt end in 2010. The reports state that Hauser intentionally fabricated and deliberately misinterpreted data from certain experiments studying monkey behavior and then pressured students to accept his research without examination.

Some students refused, however, and brought the data to his superiors as proof that he was forging evidence.[12] One of Hauser’s graduate students complained:

“The most disconcerting part of the whole experience to me was the feeling that Marc was using his position of authority to force us to accept sloppy (at best) science.”[13]

Finally, Hauser admitted that he had committed some grave errors. “I acknowledge that I made some significant mistakes,” he said. He moved on to say that he was “deeply sorry for the problems this case had caused to my students, my colleagues and my university.”[14]

Hauser subsequently resigned from Harvard in 2011[15] and went out of sight.


 Yet Hauser was hardly the only one to have engaged in scientific misconduct. In 2012, the Scientist declared,

Marc D. Hauser

“University of Kentucky biomedical researcher Eric Smart was discovered to have falsified or fabricated 45 figures over the course of 10 years.  His research on the molecular mechanisms behind cardiovascular disease and diabetes was well regarded, despite his having used data from knockout mouse models that never existed.

“Setting the record for the most publications up for retraction by a single author, Japanese anesthesiologist Yoshitaka Fujii fabricated data in a whopping 172 papers.

“Beginning his career in falsification in 1993 while at the Tokyo Medical and Dental University, he continued it at the University of Tsukuba, and at Toho University in Tokyo, where he was finally dismissed in February 2012.

“According to investigations, Fujii never actually saw the patients he reported in his clinical studies, failed to get ethical review board approval for his research, and misled co-authors, sometimes including their names without their permission or knowledge.

“The results from roughly 34,000 criminal drug cases were put into question earlier this year, when forensic chemist Annie Dookhan at the shuttered Department of Public Health Lab in Massachusetts was discovered to have falsified records on samples she was assigned to process.

“Instead, she forged signatures and did not perform tests she recorded as complete, according to investigations.

“Suspicions may have first arisen due to her impressive output—she claimed to have processed 9,000 samples in a year, whereas colleagues only averaged around 3,000. As a result of her actions, a number of defendants may have been wrongly imprisoned, while others who may have been rightly accused were freed.

“Rather than falsify data in order to get published, researchers have taken a new tack this year by writing glowing expert reviews for their own papers.

“When asked by journal editors to suggest names of experts in their field who were not involved in their research, at least four submitting authors suggested names and emails that then forwarded back to their own inboxes.

“The trend, first reported by Retraction Watch, was caught by one journal editor when author Hyung-In Moon, assistant professor at Dong-A University in Busan, South Korea, offered up names of reviewers with Google and Yahoo rather than university email accounts.”[16]

“A University of Connecticut researcher who has conducted hundreds of studies on the health benefits of compounds found in red wine has been punished by the school for faking data on numerous occasions throughout his career.

Moral Minds“Dipak Das, director of cardiovascular research at [University of Connecticut], fabricated data in 145 separate instances, according to an extensive, three-year investigation conducted by the school. The university has frozen all external funding to Das’s lab and has declined $890,000 in federal grants awarded to him.

“The university has notified 11 journals regarding Das’s misconduct, potentially triggering the retraction of several published studies on resveratrol, a phenol found in red wine.

“Das’s work formed part of the scientific foundation for the claim that resveratrol conferred cardio-protective benefits and could even increase longevity by activating proteins called sirtuins, which regulate transcription, apoptosis, and stress resistance in the human body.”[17]

Last year, China Daily reported,

“From 2010 to June 30, 2013, the [National Natural Science Foundation of China]‘s disciplinary supervision committee received 468 complaints related to scientific misconduct, 152 of which were filed by complainants using their real names. In recent years, at least 80 cases of research misconduct have been uncovered by the foundation. More here

Governments from Around the World – Including Western, Islamic, Asian and African Nations – ADMIT They Carry Out False Flag Terror


Aloha my friends!

This article is simply a refresher for veterans of the Truther movement, but it’s really a lesson in state sponsored terrorism targeted for newly awakened readers who are just now waking-up to the truth.

Now here’s an interesting little fact: The word government in Latin: “govern” means to control and “ment” means the mind. Need I say anymore?

Governments from Around the World Admit They Carry Out False Flag Terror

Governments from around the world admit they carry out false flag terror:

  • A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
  • Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, and declared that the fire originated from Finland as a basis launching the Winter War four days later
  • Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
  • The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
  • The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out false flag attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change
  • As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960′s, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
  • 2 years before, American Senator George Smathers had suggested that the U.S. make “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.
  • And Official State Department documents show that – only nine months before the Joint Chiefs of Staff plan was proposed – the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The 3 plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals
  • A U.S. Congressional committee admitted that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists
  • The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked him “to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the investigating officer into the murder incident”, thus framing the ANC for the bombing
  • An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author)
  • Senior Russian Senior military and intelligence officers admit that the KGB blew up Russian apartment buildings and falsely blamed it on Chechens, in order to justify an invasion of Chechnya (and see this report and this discussion)
  • According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organization.
  • The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings
  • As reported by BBC, the New York Times, and Associated Press, Macedonian officials admit that the government murdered 7 innocent immigrants in cold blood and pretended that they were Al Qaeda soldiers attempting to assassinate Macedonian police, in order to join the “war on terror”.
  • Similarly, the U.S. falsely blamed Iraq for playing a role in the 9/11 attacks – as shown by a memo from the defense secretary – as one of the main justifications for launching the Iraq war.  Even after the 9/11 Commission debunked any connection, Dick Cheney said that the evidence is “overwhelming” that al Qaeda had a relationship with Saddam Hussein’s regime, that Cheney “probably” had information unavailable to the Commission, and that the media was not ‘doing their homework’ in reporting such ties.   Top U.S. government officials now admit that the Iraq war was really launched for oil … not 9/11 or weapons of mass destruction  (despite previous “lone wolf” claims, many U.S. government officials now say that 9/11 was state-sponsored terror; but Iraq was not the state which backed the hijackers)
  • Former Department of Justice lawyer John Yoo suggested in 2005 that the US should go on the offensive against al-Qaeda, having “our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps, and fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion within al-Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.”
  • United Press International reported in June 2005:

U.S. intelligence officers are reporting that some of the insurgents in Iraq are using recent-model Beretta 92 pistols, but the pistols seem to have had their serial numbers erased. The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line without any serial numbers. Analysts suggest the lack of serial numbers indicates that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing. Analysts speculate that these guns are probably from either Mossad or the CIA. Analysts speculate that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance.

  • Undercover Israeli soldiers admitted in 2005 to throwing stones at other Israeli soldiers so they could blame it on Palestinians, as an excuse to crack down on peaceful protests by the Palestinians
  • Quebec police admitted that, in 2007, thugs carrying rocks to a peaceful protest were actually undercover Quebec police officers (and see this)
  • At the G20 protests in London in 2009, a British member of parliament saw plain clothes police officers attempting to incite the crowd to violence
  • A Colombian army colonel has admitted that his unit murdered 57 civilians, then dressed them in uniforms and claimed they were rebels killed in combat
  • U.S. soldiers have admitted that if they kill innocent Iraqis and Afghanis, they then “drop” automatic weapons near their body so they can pretend they were militants
  • The highly-respected writer for the Telegraph Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says that the head of Saudi intelligence – Prince Bandar – recently admitted that the Saudi government controls “Chechen” terrorists
  • High-level American sources admitted that the Turkish government – a fellow Nato country – carried out the chemical weapons attacks blamed on the Syrian government; and high-ranking Turkish government admitted on tape plans to carry out false flag attacks and blame it on the Syrian government

So Common … There’s a Name for It

This tactic is so common that it was given a name for hundreds of years ago.

“False flag terrorism” is defined as a government attacking its own people, then blaming others in order to justify going to war against the people it blames. Or as Wikipedia defines it:

False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.

The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy’s flag, instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, was hung, it was called a “false flag” attack.

Indeed, this concept is so well-accepted that rules of engagement for naval, air and land warfare all prohibit false flag attacks.

Leaders Throughout History Have Acknowledged False Flags

Leaders throughout history have acknowledged the danger of false flags:

“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”
– Plato

“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
– U.S. President James Madison

“A history of false flag attacks used to manipulate the minds of the people! “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.
– Adolph Hitler

“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
– Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.
– Josef Stalin

People Are Waking Up to False Flags

People are slowly waking up to this whole con job by governments who want to justify war.

More people are talking about the phrase “false flag” than ever before.
