THE INVISIBLE CRIME – ORLANDO: CLEAR EVIDENCE OF A COVER-UP

Be a good American cut There are many (so-called „conspiracy) theories“ out there about the spectacular shooting in the Pulse gay club and this is not surprising, given that the information that has been fed to the media does not pass the  logical „smell-test.“

Many things need to be investigated i.e. the known CIA-ties of Mateen’s Afghan father; the dark and evil machinations behind G4S; the legend that Mateen was gay himself;  that he supported „IS“ ; even the suspicion, that the whole thing is a charade  with „crisis-actors“, etc.

My approach is a different one as I focus on one aspect which is DEMONSTRABLY A FRAUD and PROVES that there is a huge cover-up going on:

DID TIME STAND STILL IN ORLANDO?

In a criminal investigation the police must interrogate witnesses, collect forensic evidence, find out what exactly happened, when and why. If the available information is authentic and coherent, if the statements from witnesses corroborate each other and match the physical evidence, the police will quickly reach a conclusion and be able to bring charges against the prime suspect, to „solve“ the crime.

In this case the police need not find out who did it (or so it seems) because the „terrorist“ has already been identified and (conveniently) killed.

As usual the synthetic „terror“  is accompanied by a prefabricated, fear- and hate-inducing narrative about the motives of the „radicalized“ Muslim perpetrator which the media-parrots dutifully repeat. First you kill the „shooter“ than you assassinate his character (create a “legend”) …

But  the information that we have gotten so far about the „time-line“ of events in the Orlando night-club is not conclusive at all. Even worse, there are HUGE CONTRADICTIONS about what happened when. So let us take a closer look:

WHY  ARE  THEY  LYING  ABOUT  THE  TIME  OF  THE  ATTACK?

On June 12, a local TV-reporter in Orlando,  Stewart Moore tweeted:

Stewart bomb 20 shot 0005Source tells me suspect wearing a bomb, barricaded inside night-club, more than 20 shot with long gun“ 

This message was posted online at 00:05 (five minutes after midnight). Only 4 Minutes later Moore sends another message:

 

Moore man hostages nightclub 0009

„… Man remains barricaded inside nightclub with hostages“ (00:09)

But the police have said that the massacre (in the main room of the club) DID NOT START BEFORE 2.a.m.

If this is true, HOW COULD THIS REPORTER POSSIBLY KNOW  SO EARLY  THAT 20 PEOPLE HAD BEEN SHOT?  

Who gave him that information? How could he talk about a „hostage situation“ when according to the official statements released to the media, this happened hours later?

49 Minutes later (00:58)  the Orlando Police (OPD) also sent a message on twitter regarding „the Pulse incident:

Orlando POL tweet 0058 12JUNShooting at Pulse on S Orange, multiple injuries, stay away from area“

„Again, the time does not fit the dominant media narrative: If the police tweeted „multiple injuries“ SHORTLY BEFORE 1 A.M., then the shooting must have begun MUCH EARLIER.

So this seems to corroborate the tweet by Stewart Moore and  by one „Emilio“ published in the Daily Mail:

 

GoEmilio tweet shooting 1156„We‘re WT Pulse Orlando HIDING IN THE DRESSING ROOM THERE WAS A SHOOTING TELL THE COPS“ (11:56 p.m.)

sent SHORTLY BEFORE MIDNIGHT on June 11.

 

But if the shooting already started SOME TIME BEFORE MIDNIGHT on June 11, then how come that there are „witnesses“ who claim „I was there. Shooter opened fire at around 2:00am.?“   How many shooters were there? It simply does not add up … and there is more:

1 Independent 935 JUN 12The British newspaper, The Independent  „reports“ the DEATH of the shooter at 09:35 a.m. BST on June 12:

The shooter was killed following a four hour stand-off with Orlando police at the Pulse nightclub, having killed at least 20 people„

If I am not mistaken, 9:35 BST  (British Summer-Time) corresponds to  4:35 a.m. local Orlando time (EST 5 hour difference).

But according to Orlando Police chief Mina „…at approximately 0500 hours this morning, THE DECISION WAS MADE to rescue hostages that were in there.

Only  then did they arrange for the „controlled explosion“, knocked down a wall with an armoured verhicle, etc.

So how could this article be published about HALF AN HOUR EARLIER (local time) with the information that the hostage-taker was already dead?

The disturbing answer to this question can be found in another tweet by the OPD which clearly announces the demise of the shooter.

Orlando Police shooter dead 253So according to this statement THE KILLER WAS ALREADY DEAD at 2:53!

Then why did the police wait until 5:00 a.m. in the morning to reach the “decision to „rescue the hostages“???  WTF is going on here???

Why was there a need to „break down a wall“ anyway and wait FOR TWO HOURS before „rescuing“ anybody?

This is a complete cock and bull story. Was Mateen lying dead outside the bathroom stalls while the freaked out „hostages“ thought he was still alive? What was really going on in there?

Remember, the „hostages“ in the bathroom stalls NEVER SAW the gunman. They only HEARD shots. They saw blood on the floor. They heard that SOMEBODY was there, heard „him“ talk on the phone but there was no visual contact at all.

  • We have not seen your face ..not even heard your voice …“ (Norman CASIANO Interview )
  • He didn’t say anything. He was just shooting“ (Jeanette MCCOY; [main room shooting]; Source: Orlando Sentinel )
  • I was outside … I never saw the gunman, I never heard the gunman“  (Shawn Royster SANTIAGO, Interview )
  • We all know what happened there“ (!) (Dr. Joshua Stephany, Chief Medical Examiner (CME), Orange County, FL)

Patience Carter Pulse victimPatience CARTER stated  the shooter spoke (to them) only once, when he asked if there were any black people inside the bathroom stalls. When this was answered in the affirmative, he responded „this is not about you, you guys suffered enough, it’s about MY country“.

But she had no idea who that person really was at that time.

ANYBODY  could have made the bizarre „911“ calls, post a crazy message on facebook (there are reports that he did not even have an account before but that  „several Facebook pages with the name “Omar Mateen” appear to have been set up AFTER the terrorist attack.“) or talk to a TV-producer in New York.

We know that the Pentagon, CIA, etc. use „social media“ to manipulate public opinion, they even create fake personas and infiltrate chat rooms, fora, comment threads, etc.

Before I am going to show how ABSURD  AND SURREAL the „calls“ Mateen allegedly made („while he was slaughtering innocent people“) REALLY ARE, just one more observation:

KEPT IN THE DARK

One witness said

the gunman had begun shooting at the ceiling initially because the glass from the lights overhead was falling onto the dancefloor.

If you are a „terrorist“ who  wants to  kill as many people as possible why would you want to destroy the lights overhead before you aim at them? To shoot in the dark with a gun that can fire 700 rounds per minute in automatic mode? To „blind“ the 14 cops who allegedly have been shooting at you before (with not one hit anyway)?

Four of us still hiding. Lights are off in club. Cops are here but haven’t got us yet. (tweet by „Emilio“)

Perhaps someone wanted the „lights off“ who had „night vision“ equipment  and wanted to ensure that no-one could really identify the shooter(s) or what was really going on inside the club ..? (Most witnesses only HEARD shots … and „only for a minute“ … „for the duration of a song“

SigSauer MCX 1(I assume this is long enough to kill 50 people with the „Black Mamba“ if you are an expert killer („special forces“ team) but not for ONE MAN who was a puny security guard AND wanted to be a police officer , a fact which is rarely mentioned in the media )

Here are 3 remarkable statements from witnesses:

Jon ALAMO had been dancing at the Pulse for hours when he wandered into the club’s main room just in time to see the gunman. “You ever seen how Marine guys hold big weapons, shooting from left to right? That’s how he was shooting at people,” he said.

One of the wounded, Angel COLON Jr, describes how [the shooter] moved through the club, shooting at each person on the ground to be SURE THEY WERE DEAD.“ (Why would he do that if he was going to commit „suicide by cop“ anyway??)

Patience CARTER:  “It sounded as IF HE WAS COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER PEOPLE who were INVOLVED WITH IT …  Maybe he was just deranged, maybe he’s just talking to himself, but I honestly feel like I DON’T THINK HE WAS ABLE TO PULL THAT OFF ALL BY HIMSELF“.

THE CRAZY PHONE CALLS

News13 transcript screenshotThe most ridiculous tale the FBI has spread are  the bizarre „911 calls“ and the call to an Orlando TV news producer. Let us have a look at the latter first. Here is an account from CBS:

CBS: „Matthew GENTILI, a producer for local cable News 13, told CBS News that Omar Mateen called the station around 2:45 a.m.“  So what did he allegedly say?

(supposedly) MATEEN: Do you know about the shooting?

(Gentili was „cut off“ by the caller but was going to say he had heard about „a shooting“ in the area; at that time he did not know about the crisis situation inside the Pulse, he was not aware of the location)

MATEEN: “I’m the shooter. It’s me. I am the shooter. (sounds like a robot)

CBS: „Gentili revealed that Mateen said he did it for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and then started to speak in Arabic.“

But in the video-clip CBS shows on the website, Gentili actually says:

„He started saying he did it for the Islamic State, (ISIS) and then he started speaking in  a foreign language..  (soundbite)

He did not say ARABIC. And people in AFGHANISTAN (where his parents come from) do not speak Arabic either, they speak mainly PASHTU or DARI  which are PERSIAN languages. Has anybody verified if Mateen was able to  speak Arabic at all?

Luckily, a complete transcript of an interview with Gentili is available here.

Here are some important excerpts:

MG: It was at 2:45 when I had just received the phone call of someone claiming to be the Orlando shooter. I answered the phone as I always do, ‘News 13 this is Matt,’ and on the other end I heard, ‘Do you know about the shooting?’ and I said ‘Yup, I’m getting information — I’m receiving some calls right now’ and he cut me off and said, ‘I’m the shooter.’ I didn’t know what to say, it was alarming to say the least. He sounded really calm on the phone and he started saying that he did it for the Islamic State — he did it for ISIS, and then he started speaking in a foreign language which at the time, being in Orlando, I thought it was maybe Spanish. But he was speaking so fast I didn’t know what it was, and thinking back now it was most likely Arabic, that he was speaking. I said ‘Sir, sir can you please speak in English?’ and then he started saying ‘I did it for ISIS, I did it for the Islamic State’ again. I didn’t know what to say to him. I was just blown away, and I asked him ‘Who is this? Where are you?’ and he told me that’s none of my effing business. He wouldn’t tell me who he was, he wouldn’t tell me where he was, but he wanted me to know that he did this for ISIS, he did this shooting for the Islamic State.”

COMMENT:

How crazy is it (surrounded by corpses or dying people) to call a journalist, tell him „I DID IT, IT WAS ME, I DID IT!“ but refuse to say one’s name??? Can anyone believe this surreal nonsense? (Was Gentili posssibly „talking“ to a recording? Or to a programmed „Manchurian candidate“?)

Then the interviewer asks him if he heard anything in the background during the call (to hint at or verify the location):

MG:  “You know, when I think back, it’s really surprising, I heard nothing– I heard silence. I feel like if I would have heard sirens or anything in the background it would have been more telling to me, that, you know- how severe this call really was and I heard nothing, I heard nothing on the other end except from him.”

Absolute silence? With all these suffering victims around … no muffled cries for help, no sounds of desperation, of pain, of fear? No crying … no sounds from cell-phones (constant messaging going on)…. no sounds from the police? How is that possible?

NOW PLAYING: FBI-THEATER OF THE ABSURD

But if you thought this sounds weird, you „ain’t seen nothing yet“: here comes the latest insult on our intelligence from – you guessed it – the FBI.

They had the audacity to release a „partial transcript“ of the 911-calls Mateen allegedly made „during the massacre“. MyNews13 provides the following summary:

  • FBI provides partial timeline of events the night of the Pulse shootings
  • FBI: Mateen talked to 911 dispatcher in ‘chilling, calm and deliberate manner’
  • Mateen said he wanted US to stop bombing Syria, Iraq.

Now we have already seen (above)  that the official „Timeline of events“ is a cruel joke so how do the  redacted „data“ released by the FBI fit into this blurry picture? They put a final nail in the coffin of the official narrative as you will soon find out.

The FBI claims that Mateen made the first 911-call at „about“ 2:35 a.m. on June 12 and this is what he allegedly said:

2 FBI redacted transcript 911 callOne might be excused for thinking this weird „dialogue“ was taken out of an absurdist drama script:

„The Absurd in these plays takes the form of man’s reaction to a world apparently without meaning, and/or man as a puppet controlled or menaced by invisible outside forces“ (wikipedia)

3 FBI redacted transcript 911 Pulse 2Precisely.

 

I am sure you noticed that AGAIN the caller REFUSED TO GIVE HIS NAME (and it does not say „omitted“ there) and also his exact location.

I am certain you have also got the impression that the statements from the alleged perpetrator sound very robotic, like a half-wit, not really like an intelligent human-being  (MK Ultra, anyone?) Or was it a recorded message?

Now the forensic value of this released fragment  by the FBI as authentic evidence for their claims is of couse ZERO.

We have no way of knowing whether this wording is accurate, whether it was really Mateen who called 911, an FBI-agent or Santa Claus. The fact, that they refuse to release THE ACTUAL RECORDING of the phone calls are a clear sign that we are being hoodwinked on a grand scale but this has become routine after „911“.

If it weren’t so serious (the „deep state“ does it again … kill with impunity) the whole thing would be absolutely ludicrous: Just read this:

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

„The FBI said it intentionally omitted the name of the shooter and the group to whom he pledged allegiance“ (!)

jens_jerndal faux terror may2015WTF??? And why would that be necessary? First they spread information which makes everybody accept the claim that Mateen was the caller (and the killer). They also release information about his „pledge of alliance to IS, their „leader“, the phony Bagdadi, the Tsarnaev-brothers:

„The FBI says the gunman who attacked a gay nightclub in Orlando called the Boston Marathon bombers his “homeboys.”(?)

but now they prefer not to confirm these statements IN WRITING –  to avoid incriminating themselves?

What’s the point of RELEASING A REDACTED / CENSORED  „CONFESSION“ ANYWAY? How stupid do they think we really are?

 CRISIS NEGOTIATIONS WITH A ZOMBIE?

 „At least three crisis negotiations occurred after the 911 call, during which Mateen identified himself as an Islamic soldier and told the negotiator to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq and that was why he was “out here right now,” the FBI said.

COMMENT: the „caller“ not only refused to give his name, he also avoided mentioning his actual location. How  utterly bizarre.

With regard to the „Stop bombing“ demand, a clarification is necessary:

CNN: „Patience Carter and others hiding in the bathroom HEARD mateen dial 911 and say he’s “doing this is because he wants America to stop bombing HIS country.” (Mateen’s parents are from AFGHANISTAN. He was born in New York.)“

We can all hear what she said on the YouTube videos. She did say „HIS country“. Again, why not release the actual recordings of the 911 calls, if these statements are true? We all know the answer …

We are not in any way trying to hide anything” US Attorney Lee Bentley  (No kidding!)

AMERICA IS AirforceSo obviously, the FBI is distorting the facts here:  they want to establish a connection with the brutal, insidious and cowardly  US-proxy war against Syria (SOLD to the public as a democratic uprising against an evil dictator who cannot be defeated without more foreign military „intervention“) and the US-SAUDI-ISRAELI orchestrated chaos in Iraq.

This fabricated „revenge“-theme serves also to create the (false) impression that the US is actually bombing IS when it is only Russia who really fights against those bastards.

LET’s DO THE TIME-WARP AGAIN

3 FBI redacted transcript 911 Pulse 2Let’s recap the „timeline“ of the FBI: (shooting begins after 2.a.m. which is contradicted by many tweets, a few of them shown above)

  • At 2:35 shooter called 911 – „hung up“; called again – hung up. Is called back by 911 dispatcher (3 calls was the original story. Now we suddenly have FOUR calls) But this does not make sense because
  • At 2:45 shooter called News13 and talked to Matthew Gentili (who can prove time of call with  phone records).
  • At 2:53 OPD sends tweet „shooter is dead“ (If this was not Mateen, who was it???)

Orlando Police shooter dead 253So how could Matteen engage in more „crisis negotiations“ after 3.a.m. when he was no longer alive? Are we talking about two different persons here? Who actually made these bizarre calls?

 

FALSE BOMB SCARE

„Mateen told crisis negotiators that a vehicle outside the club “has some bombs,” and that he would ignite them if they “try to do anything stupid.” (?) The FBI said Monday that no explosives were found inside or outside Pulse the night of the shooting.

At about 4:21 a.m., Orlando Police officers pulled out an air conditioning unit from a window of a Pulse dressing room to let clubgoers get out, according to investigators. Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Monday that about eight people were saved through that window. As the clubgoers were being rescued, they told officers that the shooter inside said he was going to put explosive vests on people in 15 minutes.“ (Source: MyNews13)

COMMENT: Well, according to OPD, the „shooter“ was already dead at 2:53. So who was making „this threat“? Another shooter? A diversion to cover something up inside the club?

And HOW could this person have carried all these explosives, a (91cm) assault-rifle, several magazines, etc. into the club? What did security do? Look the other way? (See last paragraph for more on this)

WHY would he want to put „explosive vests on people“? (He could have just shot them) What was the purpose? If he did, then he would certainly also have died when they exploded so what’s the point?

Aren’t we supposed to think this „crazy Islamist“ wanted to die anyway? As a self-styled „hero“ who took revenge for the „innocent (IS) people“ killed by the US? This story is complete BS. And if „eight people“ could get out thru a window, why couldn’t the cops get in?

„Just after 5 a.m., OPD SWAT and Orange County Sheriff’s Office hazardous device teams set off an explosive charged to breach a wall and used an armored vehicle to try to get inside the club.“

Why the need to install „explosive charges“ and break down another wall? Why indeed, when the (original) shooter was already dead???

I think this phony „bomb-scare“ inside the club was necessary to prevent medics, „innocent“ (not-in-the-loop) cops and reporters from coming too close to the crime-scene. As we have seen from the artificial „time-line“ something inside the Pulse had to be covered up, time needed to be gained before the „hostage-situation“ would be over.

THIS IS THE FINAL BOMBSHELL

“Upon that entry of our officers, there was NO OTHER GUNFIRE until the hostage rescue situation took place,” Mina said. “During that three hours I want to make sure everyone is clear: THERE WAS NO GUNFIRE.

Wait a minute: Do I understand this correctly?  The police-chief says that there was NO GUNFIRE „during that three hours“ – what exactly does he mean? (Mateen allegedly started to kill people between 2 an 2:20 so are the “three hours” a Freudian slip of the tongue, indicating the “shooting” happened much earlier?

Between 2 and 5 a.m.  THERE WAS NO GUNFIRE????  He meant after the initial shooting in the middle section of the club reported shortly after 2 a.m by one officer. Then the gunman allegedly „withdrew“ into the rest room where 20-30 people were taking cover.

Then why did witnessses say someone shot people INSIDE THE STALLS? And that someone DIED outside the stalls in the bathroom? (pools of blood on floor… was it Mateen who died there??? And then fake calls were placed to make it appear he was still alive?

  • So WHOSE SHOTS did the „hostages“ hear outside the stalls? Whose shots killed some people inside the stalls?
  • Which cop reported „shooter is dead“ at 2:53??? (And if it was not Mateen who died then, how many shooters where actually there?)

news13 OPD statement shots bathroomFBI: „Based on OPD radio communications THERE WERE NO REPORTS OF SHOTS INSIDE THE BATHROOM  (after officers entered the club to „engage“ shooter ostensibly at 2:08 a.m.).

So Mateen just talked on the phone  to the cops …(!) but they will not say what he „demanded“ during those „crisis negotiations“?  WTH is going on here? If he just talked then who killed the people inside the bathroom stalls???

MYNEWS13: „Questions concerning reports of SHOTS FIRED INSIDE THE BATHROOM (where the gunman was „barricaded“) were dismissed as part of the ongoing investigation“ ???????????????? 

DEADLY SILENCE

 „Also Monday, the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office said it had released Mateen’s body from the office. At the request of the FBI, no further information will be available REGARDING THE SHOOTER’S AUTOPSY REPORT, who the body was released to and when the body was released, the office said.“

COMMENT: You bet. The autopsy report must clarify the actual TIME OF DEATH and the precise CAUSE OF DEATH. The CME  Orange County Pathologist did the autopsy ALONE („by myself“ as he admitted on video) with no-one witnessing the proceedings.

In this hugely political case the post mortem report has explosive content  so it can be expected that the autopsy would be painstakingly correct. So why do it alone and then keep the results under wraps? (Again, the answer is obvious…)

„The trauma medical director, Dr. Joseph Ibrahim, says the only thing he would change is that more victims could have gotten to the hospital sooner so that that they could have saved more people“ (Why wait for over two hours when gunman already dead at 2:53???)

JUST A REMINDER

There have been many shootings in the US over the years and normally these crimes would be classified under „homicide“. To ensure that the FBI has full control over the crime scene, the media releases and the investigations,  it had to be designated as a „terrorist act“.

WHY COULD THE SHOOTER NOT BE STOPPED BY 14 COPS?   

LANDofMakeBELIEVEAnd just one more thing … there seems to be some confusion about the role of the OPD officer who first „heard the gunshots“ at the Pulse and encountered the  shooter „ near the entrance“ (ambiguous wording for a police department but could not stop him …

His Name is Adam Gruler and he has a reputation as a „hunter“ in law enforcement circles. Gruler is reportedly feared by the „hunted“ from the poor neighbourhoods in Orlando for his alleged brutality.

As far as I can tell there are 3 versions as to what he was actually doing there: (which is rather suspicious)

 Extra-duty“ to search for a teenager with a fake ID (?)

„Music blared and more than 300 people danced and milled about Pulse nightclub early Sunday as Orlando police officer Adam Gruler searched the area for a teenager who had gotten into the club with a fake ID. He couldn’t find the kid, so he headed back to the club’s parking lot. That’s when the shots rang out. Gruler ran toward the entrance after hearing the shots…. “ (Source)

„Off-duty“, not in uniform, engaged the shooter when he heard the shots (just happened to be there?)

„Around 2 a.m, the shooter walked past the front entrance into the main dance floor, according to a witness. He turned toward the bar area and started shooting. According to police reports, AN OFF-DUTY OFFICER engaged in a firefight with the shooter (some people escape thru patio)

Police respond shortly and enter the club, exchange fire and force the shooter to retreat to the restroom and take hostages. Many people were then able to escape from other parts of the club.“ (Source)

Off-duty“: Working as a PRIVATE SECURITY GUARD at the Pulse (!)

„Officer Adam Gruler was off-duty and working private security at Pulse. He was the first to engage the gunman.“ (Source)

security guard Gruler INDEP If Gruler (an experiencend police officer) was RESPONSIBLE for private security at the club, at that special weekend for the gay community, then the first question he ought to answer is: HOW COULD THE GUNMAN ENTER THE CLUB WITH AN ASSAULT WEAPON IN THE FIRST PLACE????

The accepted media narrative that he „just heard shots“ when he was outside the club rests solely on his testimony. And why would the shooter go back into the club? Why not try to escape in the dark or simply shoot at the cop?

What if Gruler was posted there on that special night (working clandestinely for the FBI or CIA) to ensure that the shooter could get into the club? What if the story about the „fake ID“ ist just a diversion?  This is pure speculation but it cannot be ruled out …

And how come that 14 (!) cops were unable to stop the shooter? How come that not one shot fired by the cops actually HIT the guy? That not one cop was hurt either (the story with the Kevlar helmet is just entertainment) given the Sig Sauer MCX?

What did they actually do when the shooter „retreated to the bathroom“? Why not just use some tear gas or other chemical to disable him ? How could just one guy „overpower“ or outsmart a SWAT-Team?

 „The decision by law enforcement to hold off on entering the Pulse club — where more than 100 people were shot, 49 of them killed — immediately raised questions among experts in police tactics. They said the lessons learned from other mass shootings show that officers MUST GET INSIDE SWIFTLY — even at great risk — to stop the threat and save lives.“ Source

I do not know what really happened inside that club between midnight and 5 a.m. that night but what I do know is that the official story stinks to high heaven.

Is the US ruled by psychopaths …?   Just look at the disgusting choice of presidential candidates and you know the answer ..

 

P.S. I found this on the VeteransToday website recently … (MK Ultra never went away …)

A „TURKEY SHOOT“ FOR ERDOGAN

We all have to be courageous, despite all of this, and defend the freedom of the press and the freedom to information.”

Can Dündar, May 2016 ( a lone voice)

Dündar sentenced GuardianIf any doubts still existed about the allegation that our „churnalists“ have lost their capacity (or will) to think for themselves, the recent reporting about the conviction of two courageous Turkish journalists is the proof that you no longer need a functioning brain to work for the media.

I am referring here to the Guardian but you might pick any other more or less reputable newspaper or TV-News in Europe (including RT), it does not really matter since they all „report“ the same story anyway.

So what are the facts?

  • Two Turkish journalists were sentenced to several years in prison last week
  • One of them is Can Dündar, editor-in-chief of the Turkish daily Cumhuriyet (5 years and 10 month); the other is Erdem Gül, chief of Cumhurriyet’s Ankara bureau (5 years)
  • The court ruled that their crime was: „procuring and revealing state secrets that could harm the security of the state or its domestic or foreign interests“ (both were acquitted on espionage and terrorism charges)
  • The greatest joke of it all is that wannabe Sultan Erdogan joined the trial with the complaint that (reporting the inconvenient truth about a criminal state) amounts to „an attempt to undermine Turkey’s global standing / international reputation“.

If you take a closer look how the Guardian has presented the story  you might note the following:

The last paragraph is supposed to be evidence for the Guardian’s „balanced“ reporting which works like this:

First you mention the „revelations“ of Cumhurriyet which „PURPORTED to show Turkey’s state intelligence agency ferrying weapons into Syria in 2014“. This phrasing implies of course that there is no proof for these allegations. They might or might not be true.

Then you dutifully „report“ what the accused has to say (in this case of course President Erdogan):

Regarding the video, the president has acknowledged that the lorries, which were stopped by Turkish paramilitary forces and police officers en route to the Syrian border, belonged to the intelligence agency, but he said they were CARRYING AID to Turkmen rebels in Syria. Turkmen fighters are battling against the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, and Isis.“

But this is not quite accurate.

THE CHANGING DENIALS

The fact of the matter is that the official response to the revelations by Cumhurriyet changed several times and this inconsistency is (as every criminal investigator knows) a clear sign that someone is lying.

The Turkish newspaper TODAY’S ZAMAN (English version) reported this on May 31, 2015 (the site has since been shut down – no big surprise):

„Turkish government officials have often provided conflicting accounts on the contents of intercepted Syria-bound trucks.

When the news broke in January 2014 that the Turkish military intercepted three trucks and searched their contents under the order of the lead and district prosecutors in Adana province, the government immediately dismissed the claims that the trucks were carrying arms. Prime Minister Davutoğlu, who was foreign minister at the time of the incident, asserted that the cargo was humanitarian aid destined for the embattled Syrian Turkmens on the other side of the border.

 Then-Prime Minister and now President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on television programs as well as during his public speeches that the trucks were carrying aid to Turkmens. Then-Interior Minister Efkan Ala also said the aid was for Turkmens and a public statement by MİT also claimed the same.

Testimonials by gendarmerie intelligence officers who were involved in the interception confirmed, however, that the shipment’s destination was not an area that included any Turkmen group. The destination on the Syrian side of the border, as disclosed by the drivers, was often a target of reconnaissance by Turkish military personnel who secured the border.

However, the gendarmes said the area was populated by radical groups including al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Syrian Turkmens also refuted claims that they had received either arms or humanitarian aid from Turkey at the time. Syrian-Turkmen Assembly Vice Chairman Hussein al-Abdullah said in January 2014 that no such trucks arrived from Turkey.

Earlier this month, Yasin Aktay, the AK Party’s deputy chairman responsible for foreign affairs, admitted that the trucks were in fact transporting arms, but said that the receiver was the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which is fighting against the Syrian government, not ISIL.

On the other hand, İbrahim Kalın, spokesman and adviser to President Erdoğan, claimed Turkey has never sent any weaponry to Syria.“

TELEGRAM-STYLE SUMMARY OF STATEMENTS

  • GOVERNMENT (#1): NO ARMS IN TRUCKSONLY „AID“ – FOR TURKMEN TRIBE
  • GOVERNMENT (#2): YES, ARMS IN TRUCKS BUT FOR TURKMEN ONLY (DAVUTOĞLU )
  • GOVERNMENT (#3): YES, ARMS IN TRUCKS BUT FOR FSA ONLY (AK party chairman)
  • GOVERNMENT (#4): NO, NEVER ANY WEAPONS SENT TO SYRIA (Erdogan spokesman)
  • GENDARMERIE (which searched the trucks): DESTINATION OF CARGO AN AREA WHERE NO TURKMEN ARE FOUNDAREA UNDER CONTROL OF  JIHADIS (IS and Al Nusra)
  • TURKMEN LEADER: NO AID OR ARMS RECEIVED AT THAT TIME („NO SUCH TRUCKS ARRIVED“) FROM TURKEY

So the editors of the Guardian conveniently ignored these conflicting  assertions. It makes life as a journalist so much easier.

Besides, the material Cumhurriyet published on May 29 clearly demonstrates that these lorries DID actually CARRY weapons for war (and lots of them): It showed gendarmerie and police officers opening crates on the back of the trucks on the way to Syria in January 2014. The officials first opened cardboard boxes marked as “fragile” and full of antibiotics. But what did they find hidden under those boxes?

According to the paper, the trucks were carrying six steel containers, with 1,000 artillery shells, 50,000 machine gun rounds, 30,000 heavy machine gun rounds and 1,000 mortar shells. The arms were reportedly delivered to extremist groups fighting against the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad, whom Ankara wants ousted from power.“ (Source: RT)

How did the Erdogan Government react to the „accusation“? (sending weapons to brutal Jihadis in Syria)

 „The Turkish government has vehemently denied claims that it is arming rebels fighting in Syria and accused dozens of prosecutors, soldiers and security officers involved in searching the trucks of attempting to bring it down through such claims.

[Why is the stigma-word „crazy conspiracy theory“ not used for Erdogan here when it is perfectly applicable ?]

Turkey accused of arms smuggling  to Syria

 Earlier this month, Turkey arrested four prosecutors who ordered the search of the vehicles near the Syrian border in January 2014 and they are now in prison pending trial.

 More than 30 security officers involved in the interception also face charges including military espionage and attempting to overthrow the government. The footage published on the opposition Cumhuriyet daily’s website on Friday shows inspectors searching a metallic container watched by security officers, a prosecutor and sniffer dogs.“ (Daily Mail)

Sultan ErdoganThat the megalomaniac Erdogan („a great friend“ of the US according to Joe Biden) would harass journalists who exposed his crimes comes as no surprise.  That the abuse of power of this narcissistic wannabe „Sultan“ goes so far that even prosecutors and police officers will be gagged and threatened with ridiculous charges is even more scandalous  but apparently our press does not care …(they just focus on the journalists).

THERE IS MASSIVE EVIDENCE FOR TURKEYS ROLE IN SUPPORTING TERRORIST GANGS IN SYRIA

Two reports from German media  (2014) show that hundreds of lorries cross the border between Turkey and Syria every day and a truck driver confirmed: „most of the freight here does go to the regions under IS control“ („to Ahmed in Raqqa“). Conclusion of the German journalists:  „It seems Islamic state does not have to worry about its supply lines“ (Deutsche Welle).

The second video clip (How Turkey arms and sends Wahabi Jihadis to Syria) is even more explicit, among its key findings:

Turkish locals confirm that their government provides medical treatment for the Jihadis, allows them to enter Syria freely, and that there are direct weapons deliveries to Syria

  • Turkish opposition in parlament also condemns Erdogan for „bringing thousands of foreign fighters from 40 countries to Syria“. (Erdogan’s response : „Spreading lies will be punished“)
  • „German soldiers are there (with Patriot missiles – in the meantime they have been removed) to protect a state* which is fuelling the conflict in Syria.“ Does the German government know this? (Of course, they do … Sykes-Picot 2.0 has apparently become Sykes-Merkel-Picot)
  • ( * the „analysis“ of Turkey’s intention by the ICC shown in the video is BS as was the absurd notion that the aggressor Turkey needs protection from Syria  )

There are hundreds of other reports corroborating the „allegation“  that Turkey plays a key role in supporting Al Nusra, IS and other artificial Jihadis (see LINKS at the end of this article) so the material Cumhurriyet published fits perfectly into this political context.

BidenEven Vice-President Joe Biden confirmed in his Harvard speech (lamenting the problems with US-allies in the region)  that „his great friends“ in Turkey (aided and abetted by the insufferable Saudis and of course with Washington „leading -to the slaughter- from behind“)

were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war – what did they do?“

They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, THOUSANDS OF TONS OF WEAPONS into anyone who would fight gainst Assad — except THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WERE BEING SUPPLIED, WERE AL-NUSRA, AND AL-QAEDA, and the extremist elements of jihadis who were coming from other parts of the world.“

So there is no doubt at all that the „allegations“ of Cumhurriyet are in fact revelations based on facts.  Are our journalists suffering from political autism or do they just not care? (People are dying because the press covers-up for crimes against humanity in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, etc.)

Even more bizarre is the zigzag line of argumentation used by Erdogan to justify his crackdown on the two journalists who are not under his control:

  • „Slander“: claim that footage and information published by Dündar are „not factual“: „fabricated evidence
  • Illegitimate operation against the MIT“ = espionage and „violating confidentiality“ (!)
  • Clandestine collaboration with (former ally and CIA protegé) Fetullah Gülen to „create the impression“ that Turkey helps terrorist organisations
  • Original charges: Espionage and Treason

„The Turkish authorities denied the allegations, saying that the trucks were carrying aid to Syrian ethnic Turkmen tribespeople and labeled their interception an act of “treason” and “espionage“. (RT)

This is of course practically the same silly „refutation“ the Guardian published as context for the recent verdict (see my comments above). But if the trucks carried only „aid“ why is there a need for secrecy?

And if the evidence is allegedly „fabricated“ (the original claim by Erdogan and the state prosecutor in Istanbul) then how can you justify a verdict of „revealing a state secret“?

The fact that members of the local gendarmerie (who had been involved in the operation and were therefore eyewitnesses) were also charged with „espionage“ and even four district attorneys were deposed (put into custody) to stop any independent investigation in Adana province tells the whole story …(What has happened to them? Does anybody care?) …

Turkey IS flagsIn fact everybody with half a brain (and basic knowledge of geopolitics) has figured out by now that Turkey DOES support “Islamist” terror-gangs (not only) in Syria (Russia has provided additional evidence) but the Guardian editors prefer to look the other way. This shameful behaviour by our journalists is not new  and one could rant for hours about it but my point here is the following:

If you use basic logic you will see that the verdict actually PROVES that the story Cumhurriyet published is TRUE. Why?

By charging them for „revealing state secrets“ they inadvertently admit that the story about transporting weapons  clandestinely to Syria  (under the protection of the MIT, Turkish intelligence and under the guise of „humanitarian relief“ ) must be true.

This is precisely  the „state secret“ the world was not supposed to know.

If the lorries had only transported „aid“ then how could that be a „state secret“ in the first place? The whole thing is completely absurd.

Turkeys Killing Machine synthetic Gladio terror(On the criminal role of the MIT  (a creature of the CIA) and the „Gladio“ context see this article and  Daniele Ganser)

In order to divert attention from this logical conclusion the Erdogan cabal arranged for a „shooting“ outside the court shortly before the verdict was announced.

This way they could be sure that all „news“ would concentrate on the spectacular violent event instead of understanding what the verdict really confirmed: the guilt of the Erdogan government as a major supporter of terrorist gangs in Syria.

So wordings like these are no longer justified

The journalists were prosecuted over a report ALLEGING Turkey had tried to ship arms to Islamists in Syria.“ (CPJ)

The case, which is widely viewed as a test for press freedom in Turkey, relates to the pair’s reports on ALLEGED government arms smuggling to Syria.“ (AP

but  the „churnalists“ use them because they do not have the courage to print the truth while lamenting the loss of „press freedom“ in Turkey.

They do not have the guts to show real solidarity with Cumhuriyet journalists by insisting on the truth (although they do not have to go to jail for it).

It makes you sick.

And eager to aid any and all enemies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Turkey rolled out the red carpet.

In dusty market stalls, among the baklava shops and kebab stands, locals talk of Islamist fighters openly stocking up on uniforms and the latest Samsung smartphones. Wounded jihadists from the Islamic State and the al-Nusra Front — an al-Qaeda offshoot also fighting the Syrian government — were treated at Turkish hospitals. Most important, the Turks winked as Reyhanli and other Turkish towns became way stations for moving foreign fighters and arms across the border.”

Greece for Sale

the new fascist dealThis piece (not all of it, the parts about the Nazi roots of the “European Economic Union” and the quotes from William Blum were not included) was originally written as a reply to the article Yanis Varoufakis published in the German Newspaper DIE ZEIT and which he also presented on his blog in English.

I posted it yesterday in the comment section of his blog but it was completely censored, it simply ‘disappeared’. I wonder why ….

My first question was:

If “Grexit” was the alpha and omega of the German Euro-strategy then why did they give it up in the end?

Yanis, I respect your intellectual honesty very much but I think you have been hoodwinked to believe that “Grexit” was planned all along. They knew perfectly well that Syriza wanted to stay in the EMU (apparently) at any cost (as a matter of national honour) so they

had no incentive to give any ground at all. They can continue to make demands, no matter how unreasonable, with no possible political recourse on the part of Syriza. Hence all Greeks .. [became] prisoners of the Eurozone.” (quote from Andrew Ryder).

It was all a huge Machiavellian bluff, a kind of “psyop”: by showing you the “Schäuble-Plan” they instilled fear (also in the other deficit countries) (like the Holy Officium torturers knew that in some cases just showing the victim the gruesome torture tools was enough for a heretic to “recant” or “confess”)and if that was not enough, they counted on another psychological effect: Schäuble’s ostensible determination to “kick Greece out” of the Eurozone (for which there is NO LEGAL basis) would provoke the desired reaction: after accepting the Troika’s draconian, dictatorial terms, PM Tsipras could cling to the somewhat consoling notion that Syriza had at least “foiled” Germany’s humiliating plan.

At the same time the Greek people were subjected to even more economic “shock treatment” (by cutting off liquidity to the Greek banks) and the ultimate humiliation: after the great “OXI”-vote (which gave them for a brief moment a glimmer of hope) “their” government accepted even harsher terms than originally presented by the Troika: Greece is now effectively FOR SALE (at bargain prices …). The message to all left parties (and their voters) in all of Europe is clear:

IT DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL.

You can vote … but you cannot decide …

The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.     Carroll Quigley

 

blum killing hopeIn his book „Killing Hope” William Blum writes about Greece after the US had taken charge (since Britain could no longer afford the cost of neo-colonialism) in 1947. Here are three telling excerpts:

Blum Killing Hope GREECE

The “request” for aid  was written by the State Department but presented to the world as reflecting the wishes of the Greek government:

2 US aid to Greece 1950s

Blum also quotes from a letter to the director of the US “aid-program” in Greece (AMAG), written by then Secretary of State, George Marshall  in 1947 offering the following advice:

3 US aid to Greece 1950s

Talk about the arrogance of power. Today, the unholy “Troika” does not even bother to camouflage the economic dictatorship they impose on Greece since they control the financial weapons as well as public opinion.

We know that during the Cold War the Anglo-American imperial ruling class stopped at nothing to prevent a (coalition) government with a socialist or communist party (and who knows this better than Greeks …UK/US-assisted fascist take-over in 1944, 1967, then the corrupt, US-trained PASOK puppets …etc.) in Western Europe, including NATO-supported terrorism (see “Gladio). This is no longer necessary since the neoliberal, totalitarian economic “ThinkPol” has succeeded in brainwashing European political leaders and journalists to accept the “TINA”-principle. They realize of course that the huge inequality this system produces will generate opposition, even rebellion but the tyranny of finance* has now reached such a stage that resistance seems futile (at least in the Eurozone).

*excerpt: “I had had the opportunity to hear Mr Alexandre Lamfallusy, the leading technocrat tasked with the introduction of the single currency, speak in Tokyo around 1996. He presented his road map. The astonishing aspect was the level of detail. He told us, years in advance, in which European cities the chiefs of central banks and the finance ministers would meet and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE; when and where their deputies would meet and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE; and where and when the heads of government would meet, and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE: month after month of detailed scheduled meetings, with a complete script of pre-ordained outcomes, named after the cities in which the meetings were to take place. His confident presentation made it clear that he expected this script to be followed to the letter. I saw no reason to doubt his words. (Needless to mention, this is what happened).”

(Back to my questions for Yanis Varoufakis): What I do not understand is this: You know perfectly well that the whole design of the Eurozone is crazy (economically unviable) and I am sure that you are aware of the spot-on warnings of Wynne Godley in 1992:

[…] “the power to issue its own money, to make drafts on its own central bank, is the main thing which defines national independence. If a country gives up or loses this power, it acquires the status of a local authority or colony.”

cartoon 2In several interviews I heard you say that the Euro is doomed if no structural reforms are undertaken (and you know they will not come since Germany is not even willing to confront the question let alone change a system (apparently) to its advantage) then why did you support Syriza’s plan to stay in the EMU as Minister of Finance? Why throw away your pride (as a nation and in your case as a brilliant scholar), give up your sovereignty to keep your place on the Titanic? Why did Syriza not explain to the Greek public what the Euro really is (an instrument of political subjugation)?

Einstein once quipped that

‘You cannot solve a problem with the same way of thinking that created it in the first place’.

The (German) idea that you have “to discipline” European governments with the “threat” of being kicked out of the Eurozone (for which there is NO LEGAL basis) to make the stupid fiscal union work is a perfect embodiment of this insight and shows that we are ruled by “idiots”, [Ιδιώτης / idiotikos: “unprofessional, unskilled; not done by rules of art] not intellectually mature people who really engage in politics for the community [democrates].

Hitlers ShadowThe bitter truth is, the EU never was a truly democratic project, in fact its origins can be traced back to the Third Reich “Großraumwirtschaft”. The incredible irony is, that although these plans were based on dictatorial Germany calling the economic shots (with the “Reichsmark” having the hegemonic position the dollar has today and Berlin replacing London as the financial centre), the economic planning was a lot more intelligent and socially just than the Maastricht regime – here are some major points (taken from the book The Tainted Source by John Laughland):

(See also this – 1942: Conference on the European Economic Community)

  • Labour instead of capital must be the economic yardstick.
  • Prices are no longer the regulator of all economic phenomena. Instead, prices are regulated by the state according to the needs of the collectivity (!). (Ferdinand Fried, Professor of Economics)
  • The need for an integrated European clearing-system (regarding the balance of payments) was clearly identified.
  • Primacy should not be accorded to the exchange rate, instead full employment and purchasing power stability should be the primary goals of currency management … (Dr. Bernhard Benning / The State Theory of Money)
  • Walter Funk was defending the need for state control of foreign exchange to prevent uncontrollable capital flows from disturbing the economy; He realized that in order to establish the greatest possible degree of economic and political autarky, a monetary regime would have to be set up to protect Europe from “uncontrollable international” influences that “could be used as power-political instruments to suppress us
  • To maintain currency stability, price controls and the control of credit (!) were considered necess British commentators criticized the German “hostility to the Gold standard” (and for good reason…), called their ideas “totalitarian” as opposed to economic “liberalism”, the “free-market”-scam, etc.

Well, by now we should realize that nothing is more “totalitarian” than neo-liberalism (with the “market” as cover for plutocratic rule by bankers and their rich clients)

  • Gold became irrelevant once prices were determined not by the market but by governments which regulated all economic activity and once trade was managed through clearing arrangements.
  • Francis Delaisi, an ardent opponent of the gold standard, hated “the reign of money” and was convinced that the economic history of Europe after 1918 had shown the capitalist system to be on the verge of collapse. He rightly argued that the explosion of credit between 1919-29 in the US had led to the crash of 1929, and that the consequent depression had brought massive unemployment in the Anglo-Saxon economies. This threatened to destroy the entire social structure in Europe. (sound familiar?)
  • In Delaisi’s view the gold standard restricted social progress, because (being a world currency), it opened labour markets to world competition and thereby forced down wages .. he considered it to be an “instrument of inhumane competition”. It was important to liberate producers from the competition of exotic countries whose standard of living was too low … (Hitler abolished the gold-standard as soon as he came to power).
  • Capitalism is a political system based on class interests triumphing over those of the community as a whole.

(I never understood where the “socialist” part (in National-Socialist) came from – how could an extreme right, fascist, corporate-friendly party be ‘socialist’ at the same time? Now I get the picture …)

To be clear: I am not endorsing far-right parties here at all but I want to make the point that the rule of “the free market” (serving as a cover for the financial aristocracy) is no less authoritarian than what the Nazis had planned, it is a totalitarian system – just look at what is happening in Greece. There is no ‘agreement’ here, this was pure mafia-style coercion (a ‘reverse Corleone’ someone called it): accept or bury your economy.

So it seems they took the fascist plan for a European “Union”, got rid of the “socialist” part (commanded by the state) and replaced it with the totalitarian market-regime (still favouring Berlin). Dictatorial economic “rules” that must be adhered to – at all cost – (some are more equal here than others as we have seen, since Germany and France were the first countries to violate the Maastricht rules but no ‘punishment’ was meted out to them) should evoke huge resistance but presenting these rules as “necessary” adjustments to which there is no alternative (except economic isolation and bankruptcy) has succeeded in blaming the victims for the crime … the “market” has become the new Hitler … the banks the new weapons of mass (social) destruction .. the governments the willing executioner of a neo-feudal ideology (“neo-liberalism”).

Paul Krugman noted in an interview that the German word for debt (Schulden) is almost synonymous with the German word for guilt (Schuld) and speculated how this would influence German thinking …

 

StiglitzJoe Stiglitz recently wrote about the problems in the Eurozone (and the Greek drama within it):

That concern for popular legitimacy is incompatible with the politics of the eurozone, which was never a very democratic project. Most of its members’ governments did not seek their people’s approval to turn over their monetary sovereignty to the ECB. When Sweden’s did, Swedes said no. They understood that unemployment would rise if the country’s monetary policy were set by a central bank that focused single-mindedly on inflation (and also that there would be insufficient attention to financial stability). The economy would suffer, because the economic model underlying the eurozone was predicated on power relationships that disadvantaged workers.

Yes, this is the key point: economic policy and financial control are about POWER RELATIONSHIPS not mathematical models that have nothing to do with the real world. Steve Keen makes fun of the fact that banks and credit play no role in neoclassical economic models (and rightly so) but I now think this was no “mistake” or oversight, this was done on purpose … to hide the role of banks, finance as power-players in the economy … (they even invented a FAKE NOBEL prize to glorify the fancy mathematics that passes as “econometrics”)

If the consequences for the Greek people – and all of us in Europe – were not so dire, this whole charade (“of debt negotiations”) would be laughable. A kind of sinister, political farce, written by Kafka (“the institutions”) and directed by Orwell (Eurogroup should change its name to “MINISTRY OF TRUTH”.

I leave the last words to Guido Preparata (author of Conjuring Hitler, a very distressing exposé about the rise of Hitler, financed by Anglo-American money …. and encourage you to think about what the role of the US oligarchy in all of this Euro-Game is ….)

So-called democracy is a sham, the ballot a travesty. In modern bureaucratized systems whose birth dates from the mid 19th century, the feudal organization has been carried to the next level, so to speak. A chief objective of what Thucydides referred to in his epoch as synomosiai (literally “exchange of oaths”) – i.e. the out-of-sight fraternities acting behind the ruling clans – has been the process of the exaction of rents from the population (i.e. a free income in the form of rents, financial charges and like thefts) as unfathomable and impenetrable as possible. The tremendous sophistication, and the propagandistic wall of artfully divulged misconceptions surrounding the banking systems which is the chief instrument wherewith the hierarchs expropriate and control the wealth of their supporting community, is the limpid testimony of this essential transformation undergone by the feudal / oligarchic organization in the modern era.

The West has moved from a low-tech agrarian establishment built upon the backs of disenfranchised serfs to a highly mechanized post-industrial hive that feeds off the strength of no less disenfranchised blue- and white collar slaves, whose lives are mortgaged to buy into the vogue of modern consumption. The latter-day lords of the manor are no longer seen demanding tribute since they have relied on the mechanics of banking accounts for the purpose, whereas the sycophants of the median class, as academics and publicists, have consistently remained loyal to the synomosiai.

P.S.

From the “Agreement” with the Troika (page 5):

The government NEEDS TO CONSULT AND AGREE with the institutions ON ALL DRAFT LEGISLATION in relevant areas with adequate time BEFORE submitting it for public consultation or to Parliament …” !!!!

How could Alexis Tsipras even contemplate to sign this capitulation to the “modern dictatorship of money”?! If Greece wants to regain her dignity she MUST get out of the Euro (and NATO) and prevent the BIG SALE of her assets before it is too late …

AND FINALLY ….WHAT ABOUT THIS?

Tulane University oil expert David Hynes told an audience in Athens recently that Greece could potentially solve its entire public debt crisis through development of its new-found gas and oil. He conservatively estimates that exploitation of the reserves already discovered could bring the country more than €302 billion over 25 years. The Greek government instead has just been forced to agree to huge government layoffs, wage cuts and pension cuts to get access to a second EU and IMF loan that will only drive the country deeper into an economic decline. [4]

Ukraine: Nightingale and Mockingbird

Nazis Made in USAI have written 150 articles on my German blog and did not have the time to write much on this site thinking that there are already a billion English bloggers  so who is going to read one more?

But the events in Ukraine are so important to the course of history (they might lead to WW III) and our understanding of Eurasian geopolitics that I have decided to post this article. Especially the Neo-Nazi massacre in Odessa which the German media has  ignored is a good reason to share my thoughts and the information I have gathered in the last months also with an English speaking audience.

The following essay was originally not written as a blog-post but as a series of replies to articles by Robert Parry (on Ukraine) who is an excellent journalist of the highest integrity. So debating some of his arguments or commenting on his perspective is a welcome change from the rubbish our mainstream “churnalists” turn out every day.

Yes, the government in Kiev is a fascist government and yes, there are Neo-Nazi storm / shock troops who have spread fear and terror since the Putsch “government” was installed in Kiev. So when Putin is referring to these facts it has nothing to do with “Russian propaganda to destablize Ukraine”.

US and British support for old and New Nazis goes back to the 1920s and many books have been written about that but I start here with 1945.  I was taught in school that “America” saved us from fascism but I know now that this was just another Big Lie .. Read on to understand why …

THE  ‘FIRE  VICTIMS’  STORY

The trade union building Odessa was not engulfed in flames as many media reports suggested

Robert, you write important articles about Ukraine but regarding the “fire victims” storyline you are misinformed. Most of the people in the labour union building in Odessa DID NOT DIE as a RESULT of the FIRE. The fire served only to DISTRACT ATTENTION from what was really going on inside: a Massacre in the style of a Nazi-Pogrom:

Isn’t it remarkable, that on the same day, May 2 in 1933 Hitler’s private armies, the SA and SS stormed labour union buildings all over Germany and deported the unionists to concentration camps? (some of them were tortured and killed). Given the knowledge I have gathered about the historical roots of the “ultra-nationalist” parties in Ukraine (codeword for Neo-Nazi) I find it extremely unlikely that the events in Odessa were happening on the same day in May just as a coincidence …

(WARNING: the following links contain graphic material of murder victims in Odessa)

Photos of the victims in Odessa show that the people were strangled with cables, shot in the head, or beaten to death. Their bodies were then dosed with an inflammable substance to hide the real cause of death. As some corpses clearly show because they are only partially burned (sometimes only the head and shoulders) while the rest of the body (including the clothes) are almost untouched.

You are also (unintentionally, I am sure) misleading the readers when you mention how under Reagan close ties were formed with Neo-Nazi groups in Latin America including the funding and training of “death-squads” against the rebellious poor. While this is certainly true, US-support for old and new Nazis goes back much further.

mykola-lebedIn 1945 tens of thousands of Nazi war criminals were brought to the US under the guise of the status as “displaced persons”. One of them, Mykola Lebed (see photo on the left) had been the head of the Ukrainian Gestapo “SB” (fused with a paramilitary group named UPA, which committed unspeakable atrocities against Poles in Volnya (100,000 victims) and also against the Jewish population.

The immigration authorities tried to block this because Lebed had been sentenced for planning the murder of the Polish Interior Minister in 1934 but the CIA and the DOJ intervened several times to ensure that this Nazi war-criminal (CIC files describe him as “known sadist and Nazi-collaborator) could not only enter the US but became a US citizen in no time.

Dulles letter LebedAllen Dulles personally wrote a letter to the DOJ to stress how important this man was for the CIA and that it must be guaranteed that his movements in and out of the US would not attract media spotlight to avoid drawing attention on the “operations” he was involved in.

When blood is up to the knee then the Ukraine will be free

(battle-chant of the “Banderas”, UPA members)

The US government not only protected these war criminals and Nazis for decades against prosecution but also supported a propaganda network to whitewash their crimes during the war. In return these people were (not only) employed to demonize the role of the Soviet Union (during and after the war) which – in reality – had saved Europe and the Ukraine from the evil reign of the Nazis (with 27 million “Russians” left dead).

The CIA used these criminals to “keep the flame of nationalism alive” (in the Baltics and especially in Ukraine).

Americas_Nazi_SecretSee also the book America’s Nazi Secret by John Loftus (fmr. “renegade” attorney for the DOJ; interviews with Loftus are also available on YouTube)

and Russ Bellant for the entanglement of the Republican Party with the old and new Nazis from the Baltic States and Ukraine.

It is now clear to me that the evil seed of Nazism, sown by the Anglo-American power elites after WWI (to set Germany and Russia against each other as in divide et impera) and never weeded out after WWII but instead “used” for Cold War purposes has now come into full bloom again … the UPA in Ukraine is back … another “indigenous monster” created by the puppet masters for their own geo-political games (like “Gladio” in Europe or Al Qaeda in the Caucasus, the ME and now Africa…)

God help us against these crazy, self-righteous bastards who run the “foreign policy” of the only “superpower” on this planet, and my sincerest apologies to the Russians for the treatment their president gets in our (German and English speaking) despicable media.

(Pt. II reply to an earlier article about what “Obama can do to save Ukraine” with some new material added)

THE  BRILLIANT ACT OF HYPNOSIS

“It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Source: Harold Pinter Nobel Prize Lecture “Art, Truth and Politics” , 2005 (second half of the text beginning with “Political language …)

feeling us values(Pinter’s analysis is in my opinion the masterkey to understanding how  the US is controlling the fawning media in Europe and the US who are admiring the Naked Emperor while ignoring his crimes …)

Back to Ukraine and Robert Parry:

These people [the foreign policy establishment] are not able to “recognize the complex reality of Ukraine” because they live in a fantasy world where their support for a gargantuan, aggressive military-industrial-intelligence-machine of endless war and destruction needs to be justified by the existence of a “Manichean devil”. These devils have been created with massive financial assistance from Wall Street (which includes London bankers) since 1900 first with the Bolsheviks, then Hitler and the NSDAP as the most prominent examples.

After 1945 the Bolsheviks morphed in no time from former allies into the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union which served for 45 years as the psychological projection screen for capitalism’s own systemic crimes against humanity.

So all the massacres, subversions, overthrows of elected governments, economic, psychological, political and “kinetic” warfare – in other words the enormous suffering brought on millions of people – could be justified as “necessary defense against a threat to our liberty”.

(On the self-indoctrination of  the “national security managers” during the Cold War see the brilliant book IDEAL  ILLUSIONS by James Peck)

With the demise of the SU the “devil” had apparently disappeared so on “9/11” they created a new one:Terrorism”.

It had to be “Islamic” terrorism to have a pretext for invading, plundering and destroying the few countries with energy resources in the Middle East, which still cling to the absurd notion that they have a right of self-determination in economic and political affairs AND have the audacity to expose Israel as a Rogue State with WMDs.

THE  BATTLE  FOR  EURASIA

Ring_Around_Russia-smNow as the (ZB™) foreign policy “pivot” has shifted towards Asia, “Eurasia” has (once again) become the focal point for “intervention” of all sorts. Russia has been surrounded with NATO bases and Orwellian “missile shields”. Most governments of the Baltic States and the former SU in Eastern Europe are now US “clients”. Russia was looted by Western companies and Eastern oligarchs when the corrupt drunkard Yeltsin was in power. When he brought out the tanks against his own parliament (which tried to stop the looting) the West said nothing and Wall Street applauded.

The corrupt but democratically elected Yanukovich tried to establish Ukraine as a neutral (non-aligned) power between Russia and US / NATOstan (formerly known as Europe) and realizing, that a “co-operation treaty” with the EU would ruin the (already weak) country, he opted for economic cooperation with Russia.

Then the CIA-controlled (Gladio style) Neo-Nazi hordes were let loose on the “Maidan” (in addition to the – carefully prepared and executed – ongoing civil society subversion with NGOs operating under the guise of “democracy promotion” à la Gene Sharp / the Albert Einstein Institute (front) and others) to get rid of Yanukovich. This was presented to the world as a “democratic revolution”.

The new, handpicked Brown-Shirt government (which includes Neo-liberals and Neo-Nazis, two sides of the same coin) – with a neoliberal banker as president – has difficulties to hide the fanatic, racist “nationalism” of its foot-soldiers and ideologues who want an “ethnically-pure” Ukraine and were brainwashed to hate everything “Russian”.

Like the Pavlovian dogs, they salivate every time they hear (or say) the derogatory term for Russians: “Moskal’s” and direct their irrational hatred on the imagined Triplet-enemy: Russian-Jew-Communist (this is exactly what Hitler also did to incite ethnic hatred for political purposes)

MORAL ILLUSIONS

Robert, have you realized that these crazies who are in charge of “foreign policy” HAVE TO “exclude the nasty reality of what has actually occurred (not just] in Ukraine” in order to keep up the fantasy that they are the good guys representing a “good” country which stands for democracy and freedom …? You really cannot discuss the motives of US “foreign policy” without the help of a psychiatrist ….

So of course neither Obama nor anyone else of these psychopaths would ever “admit” (neither to themselves nor to the public) what they are actually doing: committing unspeakable crimes and violating every rule of human decency that was ever invented.

warispeaceThey don’t want to “bring this crisis under control” …they CREATED it … they need wars and conflicts of all sorts because it gives them the feeling of power and the “Neo-Con” (more “con” than “neo”) disciples of Leo Strauss and Nietzsche regard WAR as the ultimate – and even noble – expression of political power, of the “right of the superior” to subjugate and destroy “the inferior”.

(And please do not use the word “conspiracy theory” when you mean “pretext” … it is a stigma-word to immunize oneself against valid arguments by denigrating the persons who use these arguments … and is really aimed at the audience  … but in this case there are no “valid” arguments as you perfectly know …)

Putin has to become the new “devil” since he is the only one available and strong enough for this role in the Great Game” of getting Eurasia (energy-wise) under control AND because he has started to subvert the dollar-hegemony (huge gas /trade deals with China to be paid in their own respective currencies) … AND there is a project of the BRICS countries to create their own “development bank” in order to evade the tyranny of the US-led IMF banking cartel.

CHARACTER ASSASSINATION or Attack is the Best Defense

Of course, students of the (real history) of American foreign policy know that US elites have no credibility whatsoever and their moral posture lecturing other leaders about democracy and freedom is utterly ridiculous and hypocritical. But you can seemingly elevate you own moral status by denigrating your opponent with a massive “strategic information” campaign in order to demonize this person in the eyes  of the public.

Putin smilingSo they are going to destroy Putin’s credibility so that no matter what he says or what he does, the audience must be conditioned to shudder at the mere mention of his name, or when they hear the adjective “pro-Russian” framed in the context of aggression and violence (parotted in the news in Germany 24/7) .

Your are right, Putin wants to be respected as a statesman and he wants even more respect for Russia which he brought back from the brink of ruin to a major player in world affairs – but no empire.

27 Million “Russians” died in WWII, the soldiers among them had defeated 90% of the German Wehrmacht divisions at the horrible Eastern Front while we were taught in history lessons that “America” has saved us from fascism. What a cruel joke.

Hitlers ShadowIt was “America” (as the new version of the British Empire) that protected the worst Nazi criminals from prosecution and used them to build their “Intelligence” agencies and new networks of subversion and terror in Latin America and in Europe. (The “American people” had of course no say in the matter …)

So Putin is right, when “he has come to view the U.S. government and the EU as sources of endless double standards and double talk, places without honour” – that’s what they are … predatory finance and capitalism have no “honour” .. it does not pay …

You mentioned JFK’s American university address: (with this speech his signed his death warrant) There is one simple sentence in it which I find extremely important:

“I also believe that we must re-examine our own attitude – as individuals and as a Nation- for our attitude is as essential as theirs.”

Self-reflection is a normal and necessary thing for grown-up, intelligent people but can anyone imagine a member of the US power establishment saying these words today in public? No way.

Robert, in your article you are finally wondering “whether Obama can pick up Kennedy’s torch of peaceful understanding” and see the world through the eyes of the other side, etc.

These people live in another moral universe than the rest of us … in it there is no place “for peaceful understanding” only dominance for the “chosen” ones and subservience for the others.

The US Empire is built on massive self-deception and a moralizing, crusading ethos to legitimate the crimes of aggression against the rest of the world.

As Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, self-honesty is the basis for moral actions toward others … “and as the day follows the night, thou canst not then be false to any other man” (if I remember the words correctly).

“Talks” about one or the other crisis are meaningless when the only superpower is utterly dishonest … I really feel sorry for Sergei Lavrov who has to sit at the “negotiating table” with these double-dealing hypocrites …

William Blum puts it in a nutshell:

(Dear children), US foreign policy does not mean well …  But when will the “churnalists” get that?

NucLIAR & Flat Earth News

Congratulations! Thanks to the publication of the latest NucLiar “strategic information” piece, the Guardian is now the front-runner for the “Flat Earth News Media Award”, (category: Daft Science & Environment Editor) founded by the Edward Bernays Society for contributions to “moulding public opinon” as part of a hidden economic agenda.

In the middle of the “climate change” dilemma, wouldn’t it be a great PR-idea to sponsor an Oxford professor (pay for the publication of his ludicrous book) who claims that “nuclear dangers are overstated” in order to  generate support for the “nuclear renaissance”?  Worried about the easily detectable, systemic distortions of an incompetent “expert” and  the dangerous “dumbing down” of science? No Fear!    “They report what they are given” [cited in  “Flat Earth News”]

Excuse the irony & candour, but this is so obviously a piece of propaganda for the nuclear industry that the editor who approved it, ought to be fired at the spot: either for lack of journalistic integrity or for sheer stupidity. Here are some basic reasons why the whole story is a  PR-scam:

1) Lack of Expertise:

Allison is a particle physicist, not an expert in molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics  &  genetics  (the  combined, overlapping knowledge necessary for radiation biology). The focus of all big questions about the effects of low doses of ionizing radiation is the cellular, molecular level not the primitive concepts of  “body dose” or “organ dose” which are based on crude physical models developed by – you guessed it – physicists.

2) Comparing apples  to oranges

Allison, as echoed in the article, makes no distinctions between different types of radiation exposure but the effects of  acute,  external, low LET ionizing radiation (gamma-rays from nuclear explosions or x-rays) cannot be simply extrapolated to estimate the health risks from nuclear installations because they result from chronic, internal, high LET ionizing radiation, especially from inhaled or ingested alpha-particles.

Also, not all radioisotopes have the same biological impact if internalized:  e.g. whether from “ hot particles”, “warm particles”, Plutonium or Uranium, the effects are different. If particles are “stuck” in tissue or sequentially decaying radionuclides like Strontium 90 (from weapons fallout) bind to DNA, the radiological and chemical toxicity cannot just be lumped together under the heading of “same dose, same risk”. Auger emitters for example, widely used for radiotherapy, create much greater damage at the cellular level than other radionuklides, i.e. x-rays:

“Even in the case of uniform distribution, some of those Auger emitters are highly radiotoxic compared to hard gamma rays. For Auger emitters to bond to radiosensitive sites in cell nucleus, much higher radiation effectiveness could be expected.”

This is another reason why the simple comparison of risk between radiotherapy exposure, X-rays, CT-scans, Sellafield and “natural background” exposure is not valid since Allison’s arguments are based on the premise that ionizing energy  is  always evenly distributed in  the body, which is demonstrably false. (More on the subject see under 4 below)

3) Nucliar AtTAC aided by “ Truth-Avoiding Coverage

Instead of inflicting on the public yet another endless debate between disagreeing scientists,  it ought to be the job of journalists to investigate who is telling the truth[1] and who is lying or serving a hidden agenda. We need an independent press to establish trust and authenticity in order  to get real insight.

As Nick Davies rightly points out, the concept of “neutrality” or “balance” must be reassessed to stop “the packaging of conflicting claims which is precisely the opposite of truth-telling”. Jha and Bosley are a perfect example of this problem: The assertions of Allison  are “balanced” by reporting what other scientists have to say, but all statements are dubious and not illuminative as long as the bigger political context is missing and even more so,  if the “background” is also a showcase for “churnalism”: “Nuclear radiation risk: The current consensus” which brings us to

4) Who the hell is the ICRP? How is “dose” calculated and what does it mean?

How is the public supposed to make an informed judgement if journalists do not bother to get a deeper understanding of a controversial subject BEFORE they write about it (or publish relevant “material”)? The aforementioned “current consensus” background by Alok Jha is another showcase for ignorant “science reporting”:

“How is radiation harmful?” ( One size fits all – Oversimplifications)

Ionising radiation … can damage the DNA in the nucleus of a cell. Unless the cell’s repair machinery can fix the breaks, or else the cell itself is killed, it has a higher chance of becoming cancerous.”

If the “editor” had bothered to do even a quick research on the subject, he would have discovered, that this is  no longer a valid assessment of risk because hundreds of studies have challenged the outdated view, that relevant biological damage occurs only if the cell nucleus is hit:

To be sure, new mechanistic possibilities must now be considered in interpreting the results of both in vitro and in vivo studies inasmuch as nuclear DNA alone no longer can be viewed as the only relevant target for the actions of IR, or even necessarily the most important target for eliciting at least some detrimental effects of IR under some exposure conditions.”[2]

“What is a safe dose?”

This is an even greater insult to any intelligent reader (and to painstaking journalism) because Jha has obviously just copied the “industry friendly information” (lacking any scientific credibility) he received from Allison. Besides, the first thing he should have done is explain  what “dose” realls means, that it is not based on scientific measurement but just a theoretical, mathematical construct:  to give an  estimate based on a physical “ model”, multiplied with another factor to give “RBE”,  which is supposed to enable the quantification of risk (the likelihood and extent of biological damage). A great source of information for all these questions is the 2004 CERRIE Report (and the surrounding controversy of political influence) which the guardian reported – why did Jha not use  these sources instead of recycling the rubbish from Allison?

It is not so hard to understand  that, whether a tiny alpha-particle is stuck in lung tissue or in the lymph nodes, etc. makes a huge difference in determining the detrimental health effects, not only because different organs have a different radiation sensitivity.  Besides, it is plainly ridiculous to calculate / extrapolate linearly from the “equivalent” (organ) dose which is in turn derived from “effective” (body) dose when effects on microscopic (incredibly tiny, i.e. millionths of a milimeter) volumes at the molecular and cellular  level  need to be examined and understood.

In addition, we also need to understand if and how different radionuclides move in the body (biokinetics). It is pretty obvious that the risk assessement for complex cellular systems  cannot be adopted from studies on external exposure to x-rays or gamma-rays, with a relatively uniform distribution of energy in the tissue. A reliable  model to estimate the combined effects of different types of radiation  has not yet been found.

But all the evidence strongly points to the conclusion that it is the concentration of ionization (its density) in a small group of cells, or even a single cell that defines “risk” at the molecular level, not the bodily dose (more a political consensus than a scientific one)  as Paul  Brown correctly reported in 2004:

The National Radiological Protection Board has always measured a tiny dose received by an individual as if it affected the entire body evenlyso the result was a dilution that appeared to do little harm. The possibility that the dose would lodge near a bone or in the brain and emit radiation inflicting localised damage leading to cancer had not been not accepted.

So all the talks about “background dose” or “safe dose” is meaningless and the absurd claims that below 100 mSv, there is no problem whatsoever and below 200 mSv DNA repair can fix everything (and other absurdities) prove that Allison is a charlatan and I bet 10.000 EUR, that if investigated properly, some connection to the nuclear industry will be found. If Jha had bothered to look at the sources Allison frequently uses, the penny would already have dropped: the US DoE, the NEI, the  NEA, the “Radiation, Science & Health Inc.” (a front group, if there ever was one) and obscure and refuted studies like “Is Chronic Radiation an effective  prophylaxis against cancer?” The man even champions the routine  irradiation of food! (see his website) Allison’s  attempt, to bring the “hormesis myth back to life is obvious, but futile.

The “lack of understanding” of how the body deals with LDIR is the result of ostracizing  independent scientists who represent a danger to the nuclear industry and its unhealthy ties to the military, the great protector of the nuclear holy grail. So any “article” dealing with risks of IR can only make sense if accompanied by “background” about the political agenda behind the “peaceful use of nuclear energy”. The Orwellian character of this charade ought to have been clear from the beginning, with the ludicrous slogan “atoms for peace” which demonstrates that exactly the opposite of Allison’s claim is true: not the “anti-nuclear” lobby created “irrational fear” but the very rational fear of ionizing radiation (a life-preserving instinct since we have no sensory receptor) was ridiculed and the immense risks and uncertainties downplayed, to foster acceptance of an insane technology that threatens all life on earth and has caused a global cancer epidemic (among other diseases).

Since the second world war, scientists have worked on the basis that there is no dose of radiation so low that it’s not dangerous.”

This is complete BS. A quick look at the historical development of the ICRP model shows that for decades the converse view was taken: Based on the extrapolations from Hiroshima, the accepted wisdom was that below a certain threshold, health risks were negligible. The “acceptable” or “permissible” (maximum) dose had to be  adjusted downward again and again as increasing scientific evidence showed that the risks were much higher than originally assumed.

You do have authentic and independent experts on radiation biology (biochemistry) in the UK: among them the courageous Dr. Chris Busby – Why is he not allowed to write in the Guardian or serve as competent advisor on the subject?

Your reports about genetic engineering are also very uncritical …  Political / economic pressure?

The ethical responsibility of the press  to inform the public about these controversial  scientific issues (affecting many generations to come)  is enormous …

Are you up to it with these “reporters” ?

Beyond Treason and « Gulf War Syndrome – Killing Our Own «

<<<<to watch the BT video click on the  image

P.S.  Send Simon Jenkins to Iraq and let him see the deformed babies, the exploding cancer incidence in children, the immense suffering,  for himself. The man is a small-minded idiot: the incredibly stupid assertion that “Nobody makes money from downplaying risk (how about the nuclear industry, eh? – the evidence of a cover-up (just look at the “official” Chernobyl figures) is staring in your face) while at the same time accusing the “anti-nuclear lobby” of  exaggerating risk for personal gain must go down in the history of print as one of the darkest moments of human bias and ignorance …. because people are suffering and dying while Jenkins gets paid for his high  bollocks  turnout …  (remember Asbestos, DDT, PCBs,  – wasn’t it all “safe” ..???!!!)

Fatima, this little girl, was suffering from severe congenital malformations, is – in Jenkins universe, the result of “irrational fears about irradiation”

Tell that to her parents… (Fatima has died in the meantime, she was born with two heads ….) What can one say to express the feelings of outrage and grief?


Remember, this is the result of “Operation Iraqi Freedom” …..
