The Separation Of Bathroom & State

When the US city of Charlotte, North Carolina passed a local law which became known as ‘the bathroom ordinance’ which gave ment the right to use women’s public toilets, sports facilitity changing rooms and so on, in effect a spineless caving in to the hate politics of the Gay BLT lobby, the state of North Carolina’s response to it — has taken on a life of its own.

In late February 2016, the Charlotte, North Carolina, city council passed the “antidiscrimination” law, scheduled to go into effect on April 1. It was aimed at protecting what, in the view of the city council, are the rights of those in the gay, lesbian, and transgender community. The centerpiece of this law was a clause that prohibited businesses providing bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers from segregating usage of those facilities by biological gender. Biological males or females must be allowed to use the facilities of the opposite sex if they claim that that is the sex they identify with psychologically. (Note, no proof was required.)

Much of the criticism of the Charlotte bill was centered around two issues: the ‘religious’ freedom of business owners and the privacy rights of people, particularly women, using public bathroom and shower facilities. Most sane people would I think, contend that the issue of religious freedom is irrelevant, providing separate facilities is a matter of common decency.

Similar ordinances have been used to force small business owners like florists, bakers, photographers and bed-and-breakfast owners and others either to conform to a government-dictated viewpoint in violation of those sincerely held religious beliefs or to face legal charges, fines and other penalties that have ultimately caused some to go out of business. I attacted a lot of hate mail when blogging on a case of a bakery in Ireland that refused to supply a celebration cake bearing a message supporting same sex marriage was charged under hate crime laws. My offence was to point out that why a gay couple could demand they business serve them and be backed by law, my wife and I could ask the bakery to make a cake saying “best wishes to Dave and Debbie, thanks for giving us a grandchild,” and the business would have every right to refuse simply because they did not like the look of us. Freedom always has to be a two way street.

In the face of public outrage from the herterosexual majority who were quite happy with the status quo, the state of North Carolina’s responded by imposing a law at state level that ruled all toilets (or rest rooms as the somewhat prissy American left refer to them) and changing facilities did not have to be politically correct and non discriminatory. This prompted the Gay BLT lobby (yes, I know that is offensive, if the politically correct clowns claim the right to ffend me, then in the name of equal rights and diversity, I claim the right to offend them,) and their supporters the progressives to take up arms against sanity and demonstrate once more that when they screech about equal rights, what they really mean is very unequal rights or privileged status for favoured minorities.

In fact the North Carolina law did not discriminate agains transgender freaks or men who, usually for highly unsavoury reasons, want to ‘identify’ as women in order to use women’s toilets and changing rooms, what it did restore freedom and property rights to business owners while respecting the rights of people, mostly women, to share facilities only with people of their own gender and to guarantee those rights across the state. In fact it should surprise me that the feminists and ‘progressives’ who have screeched about womens rights for fifty years are now prepared to brush aside womens’ rights because the cause of chicks-with-dicks rights is more fashionable.

I say it should surprise me because I have been exposed to the double standards, hypocrisy, authoritarianism and sheer selfishness of US ‘progressives’ and ‘liberals’ that nothing they do or say could surprise me now unless they all succumbed to a plague of common sense and decency.

Now as a man I am not particularly worried about who I share public toilet facilities with, but I do understand why women do not want to share with us lads as we curse, fart, scratch our bollocks and exchange crude remarks. And I understand why males who are going through the lengthy gender ‘reassignment’ program would feel unsafe in a mens’ facility. But if such people are sensible and do not make a big deal of the fact that they have dangly bits or make typically male comments (e.g. “nice tits love, show us your knickers”) to women then there is no problem.

However, under the Charlotte law gender specific facilities would be illegal, people would be forced to share. And that is not acceptable, what’s more there is nothing liberal or progressive about imposing the moral values of a minority on the majority.
The law in North Carolina that ‘progressives’ (i.e. fascists) are angry about does not prohibit businesses from having bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, etc., that allow use by people of all genders defined biologically, psychologically, or whatever. In a “myths vs facts” explanatory statement put out by the governor of North Carolina this was made quite clear:

Can private businesses, if they choose, continue to allow transgender individuals to use the bathroom, locker room or other facilities of the gender they identify with …
Answer: Yes. That is the prerogative of private businesses under this new law. …The law neither requires nor prohibits them from doing so.

In other words, where the US Constiution codifies the separation of church and state, the state of North Carolina has now gone a step further and codified a basic libertarian principle: the separation of bathroom and state.
The only places in North Carolina where bathrooms, showers, etc., must conform with biological sex is in government owned facilities — courtrooms, city halls, schools, etc., where this separation is not possible. So yes, in North Carolina prurient 14 year old old boys, as defined by certain biological features, may not use the girls’ locker room and showers after gym class at the local public middle school. In private middle schools, governors are free to do what they want. If not accepting this is unjust discrimination makes me a bigot, then so be it. Under the Charlotte arrangement the aforementioned prurient 14 year old boys can use facilities according to how they self identify. If you cannot see what is wrong with that arrangement then you know nothing of: a) fairness and b) 14 year old boys.

Leftists all over the USA and some on Europe are accusing North Carolina of bigotry while, in the name of tolerance, a growing list of pop stars, show biz luvvies and businesses are boycotting the state. Unfortunately, what has gotten lost in all the rhetoric surrounding this issue is the truth about both the original Charlotte law and the state’s response to it.

Former Establishment Figure Blows Whistle On Estasblishment

Former British diplomat Craig Murray has been a thorn in the side of the establishment for some time. After he stepped down as an Ambassador Murray, who was appalled by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, became an anti -war campaigner and human rights activist (serious human rights like the right to not be bombed). Now, as the governments of the USA, United Kingdom and France plan another regime change bombing campsign, this time in Syria, Murray blows the whistle on drone warfare.

Exclusive: I Can Reveal the Legal Advice on Drone Strikes, and How the Establishment Works

September 09, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – This may be the most important article I have ever posted, because it reveals perfectly how the Establishment works and how the Red Tories and Blue Tories contrive to give a false impression of democracy. It is information I can only give you because of my experience as an insider.

It is a definitive proof of the validity of the Chomskian propaganda model. It needs a fair bit of detail to do this, but please try and read through it because it really is very, very important. After you have finished, if you agree with me about the significance, please repost, (you are free to copy), retweet, add to news aggregators (Reddit etc) and do anything you can to get other people to pay attention.

The government based its decision to execute by drone two British men in Syria on “Legal Opinion” from the Attorney-General for England and Wales, Jeremy Wright, a politician, MP and Cabinet Minister. But Wright’s legal knowledge comes from an undistinguished first degree from Exeter and a short career as a criminal defence barrister in Birmingham. His knowledge of public international law is virtually nil.

I pause briefly to note that there is no pretence of consulting the Scottish legal system. The only legal opinion is from the Attorney General for England and Wales who is also Honorary Advocate General for Northern Ireland.

So Jeremy Wright’s role is as a cypher. He performs a charade. The government employs in the FCO a dozen of the most distinguished public international lawyers in the world. When the Attorney-General’s office needs an Opinion on public international law, they ask the FCO to provide it for him to sign.

The only known occasion when this did not happen was the Iraq War. Then the FCO Legal Advisers – unanimously – advised the Attorney-General, Lord Goldsmith, that to invade Iraq was illegal. Jack Straw asked the Attorney General to dismiss the FCO chief Legal Adviser, Sir Michael Wood (Goldsmith refused). Blair sent Goldsmith to Washington where the Opinion was written for him to sign by George Bush’s lawyers. [I know this sounds incredible, but it is absolutely true]. Sir Michael Wood’s deputy, Elizabeth Wilmshurst, resigned in protest.

In consequence Blair and Straw decided that, again for the first time ever, the FCO’s chief legal adviser had to be appointed not from within the FCO legal advisers, who had all declared the war on Iraq to be illegal, but from outside. They had to find a distinguished public international lawyer who was prepared to argue that the war on Iraq was legal. That was a very small field. Blair and Straw thus turned to Benjamin Netanyahu’s favourite lawyer, Daniel Bethlehem.

MH17 Perception Deception: Truth 0% Spin 100%

In the 21st century the US may be incapable of winning wars or even pursuing its own national interest but the media manipulation around the shoot-down of MH17 proves it is reaching new heights (or depths) in the art of perception management.

This article, by Ray McGovern originally appeared at Consortium News. The author is a retired CIA analyst of 27 years. He served as chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, and prepared and personally conducted early morning briefings of the President’s Daily Brief.

During a recent interview, I was asked to express my conclusions about the July 17, 2014 shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, prompting me to take another hard look at Official Washington’s dubious claims – pointing the finger of blame at eastern Ukrainian rebels and Moscow – based on shaky evidence regarding who was responsible for this terrible tragedy.

Unlike serious professional investigative reporters, intelligence analysts often are required by policymakers to reach rapid judgments without the twin luxuries of enough time and conclusive evidence. Having spent almost 30 years in the business of intelligence analysis, I have faced that uncomfortable challenge more times than I wish to remember.

So, I know what it feels like to confront issues of considerable consequence like the shoot-down of MH-17 and the killing of 298 passengers and crew amid intense pressure to choreograph the judgments to the propagandistic music favored by senior officials who want the U.S. “enemy” – in this case, nuclear-armed Russia and its Western-demonized President Vladimir Putin – to somehow be responsible. In such situations, the easiest and safest (career-wise) move is to twirl your analysis to the preferred tune or at least sit this jig out.

But the trust-us-it-was-Putin marathon dance has now run for 13 months – and it’s getting tiresome to hear the P.R. people in the office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper still claiming that the U.S. intelligence community has not revised or updated its analysis of the incident since July 22, 2014, just five days after the crash.

Back then, Clapper’s office, trying to back up Secretary of State John Kerry’s anti-Russian rush to judgment, cited very sketchy evidence – in both senses of the word – drawn heavily from “social media” accounts. Obviously, the high-priced and high-caliber U.S. intelligence community has learned much more about this very sensitive case since that time, but the administration won’t tell the American people and the world. The DNI’s office still refers inquiring reporters back to the outdated report from more than a year ago.

None of this behavior would make much sense if the later U.S. intelligence data supported the hasty finger-pointing toward Putin and the rebels. If more solid and persuasive intelligence corroborated those initial assumptions, you’d think U.S. government officials would be falling over themselves to leak the evidence and declare “we told you so.” And the DNI office’s claim that it doesn’t want to prejudice the MH-17 investigation doesn’t hold water either – since the initial rush to judgment did exactly that.

So, despite the discomfort attached to making judgments with little reliable evidence – and at the risk of sounding like former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld – it seems high time to address what we know, what we don’t know, and why it may be that we don’t know what we don’t know.

Those caveats notwithstanding I would say it is a safe bet that the hard technical intelligence evidence upon which professional intelligence analysts prefer to rely does not support Secretary of State Kerry’s unseemly rush to judgment in blaming the Russian side just three days after the shoot-down.

US Officials Consider Nuclear strikes Against Russia

Haven’t I been warning for years that the threat to world peace came not from Russia or China but from the USA. In the face of severe provocation from washington the Russian government have acted with restraint. Now it looks like the Americal hawks are getting desperate.

The US needs war of course, it’s the only thing that could revive the moribund American economy and pull together a fragmented society that is on the verge of civil conflict.

from World Socialist Website:

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter is meeting today at the headquarters of the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany with two dozen US military commanders and European diplomats to discuss how to escalate their economic and military campaign against Russia. They will assess the impact of current economic sanctions, as well as NATO’s strategy of exploiting the crisis in eastern Ukraine to deploy ever-greater numbers of troops and military equipment to Eastern Europe, threatening Russia with war.

A US defense official told Reuters that the main purpose of the meeting was to “assess and strategize on how the United States and key allies should think about heightened tensions with Russia over the past year.” The official also said Carter was open to providing the Ukrainian regime with lethal weapons, a proposal which had been put forward earlier in the year.

Most provocatively, a report published by the Associated Press yesterday reports that the Pentagon has been actively considering the use of nuclear missiles against military targets inside Russia, in response to what it alleges are violations of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Russia denies US claims that it has violated the INF by flight-testing ground-launched cruise missiles with a prohibited range.

MH17 Investigation: Former Pilots and BUK missile maker speak.

An interim report on the official investigation into the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 disaster, published in September 2014 said the crash was a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects that struck the Boeing from the outside. However, it did not conclude what the objects were, where they came from, or who was responsible.

The Kiev government and most of Western news media have unequivocally blamed eastern Ukraine militias and Russia. The Russian Defense Ministry shared radar data pointing to other possibilities in July 2015 – including an attack by a Ukrainian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet, which was said to have been tracking the passenger plane.

While an official international investigation into the crash has been dragging on for nine months, the debate into the cause of the tragedy has been once again reignited by recent comments from the chief designer of the SU-25.

from Russia Today

Kiev-born Soviet and Russian aircraft designer Vladimir Babak said on Monday that the SU-25 jet – which was spotted tracking the MH17 Boeing at the moment it crashed down – did not have the capability to shoot down a passenger plane. He said the fighter jet could have successfully attacked the Boeing at an altitude of 3,000-4,000 meters, but not at the plane’s altitude of 10,500 meters. He added that air-to-air missiles would have only damaged the Boeing – not completely destroyed it while still in the air.

However, several former top officials and SU-25 pilots disagree with Babak.

Based on the analysis of the plane debris and the nature of the damage, there is a high probability the plane was stuck by an air-to-air missile and an aircraft gun, Claims that the passenger plane was downed by a surface-to-air Buk missile cannot be supported, as the nature of the damage from the missiles is different,” Lieutenant General Aleksandr Maslov, former deputy chief of the Russian Air Defence and Land Forces said.

Disputes about the operational capabilities of the SU-25 jet stem from the Russian definition of the aircraft’s service ceiling – which is not the same as its absolute ceiling, as defined by the US military, Veterans Today senior editor Gordon Duff commented.

“The claimed service ceiling is based on the oxygen supply in the aircraft. Now, there is a claim that this plane [SU-25] will only work to 22,000 feet. At the end of World War II, a German ME-262 would fly at 40,000 feet, a P-51 Mustang propeller plane flew at 44,000 feet. The SU-25 was developed as an analogue of the A-10 Thunderbolt, an American attack plane. The planes have almost identical performance, except that the SU-25 is faster and more powerful. The A-10 Thunderbolt has a service ceiling of 45,000 feet. The US estimates the absolute ceiling, which is a different term,” Duff explained.

Duff said one cannot be entirely sure the detected fighter jet was an SU-25 at all, as modern radar spoofing counter-measures – such as those designed by BAE Systems and employed by NATO – are able to mask any other aircraft, be it an SU-27 or F-15, as another plane.

Duff also said he has discussed the possibility of the MH17 flight having been hit by a ground-to-air missile with experts from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), the FBI, the Air Line Pilots Association, as well as air traffic and air operational officers – and they all agreed that no proof of anti-aircraft missile use has been provided to the public.

It is highly unlikely that the launch of such a missile would have gone unnoticed in the area, Duff stressed, adding that the trail left by the rocket in the air would have been witnessed and filmed by “thousands.”

“There is no reliable information supporting that it was a Buk missile fired by anyone,” he added. The known estimate for the absolute ceiling of the SU-25 is 52,000 feet (15.8km), he added.

Putin Blames US Foreign Policy For Spread Of Terrorism

Russia’s president Putin has become more harsh in his criticisms of US foreign policy over the past few years, from the moment France, the UK and USA used the excuse of staging a ‘humanitarian mission to prevent genocide in Libya’ to wage a bombing campaign on that country with the aim of bringing down the Gaddafi regime, relations between the western powers and the Russia / China alliance have been going downhill fast .

Now with a resurgent Islamic State advancing on Baghdad and other strategic targets again after a period of consolidation, the Russian leader has made his harshest attack to date on US foreign policy.

New York Times Says USA Too Scared Of Hitting Civilians To Deal With ISIS

There are a few questions raised by a sorty in the New York Times which accuses The White House and The Pentagon of being too scared of hitting civilians to attack ISIS strongholds in Iraq and Syria. The first is “When did the liberal New York Times align itself with neo – con warmongers.

The second of course is “When did fear of killing civilians ever stop The Pentagon from carpet bombing enemy targets?

The answer to the first is of course that to US ‘liberals’ the colour of the current President’s skin absolves him of everything, if he says war is good then there can be no argument against that.

Could the answer to the second by any chance lies in the ‘conspiracy theory’ that thanks to a recent whistleblower was proved to be true: ISIS was set up with the aid of the CIA to assist the Sunni Muslim fundametalist government of Saudi Arabia overthrow several Shi’ite and secular Muslim middle eastern dictatorships?

This story in Information Clearing House makes things a lot clearer.

NYT Trumpets U.S. Restraint against ISIS, Ignores Hundreds of Civilian Deaths

The New York Times this morning has an extraordinary article claiming that the U.S. is being hampered in its war against ISIS because of its extreme — even excessive — concern for civilians. “American officials say they are not striking significant — and obvious — Islamic State targets out of fear that the attacks will accidentally kill civilians,” reporter Eric Schmitt says.

The newspaper gives voice to numerous, mostly anonymous officials to complain that the U.S. cares too deeply about protecting civilians to do what it should do against ISIS. We learn that “many Iraqi commanders, and even some American officers, argue that exercising such prudence is harming the coalition’s larger effort to destroy” ISIS. And “a persistent complaint of Iraqi officials and security officers is that the United States has been too cautious in its air campaign, frequently allowing columns of Islamic State fighters essentially free movement on the battlefield.”

The article claims that “the campaign has killed an estimated 12,500 fighters” and “has achieved several successes in conducting about 4,200 strikes that have dropped about 14,000 bombs and other weapons.” But an anonymous American pilot nonetheless complains that “we have not taken the fight to these guys,” and says he “cannot get authority” to drone-bomb targets without excessive proof that no civilians will be endangered. Despite the criticisms, Schmitt writes, “administration officials stand by their overriding objective to prevent civilian casualties.”

But there’s one rather glaring omission in this article: the many hundreds of civilian deaths likely caused by the U.S.-led bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria.

Hillary Clinton Is Qualified To Be US President Because She’s Senile?

The 2016 US Presidential race looks set to become more farcical than the 2008 campaign that ended in Barack Obama being proclaimed President by virtue of his skin colour.

Now stop that wailing and gnashing of teeth, I never said that being black should have disqualified him from being President, only that his ethnic origin (mixed race) should not have been used to defect criticism of the former rent boy’s many obvious failings that should have made voters aware he was unfit for office.

Now, with the Republicans seemingly determined to lose again, probably because they know how much shit America is in, (in the future we expect to see Jeb Bush sitting in the back of a limousine alongside his big brother, and whining, “I couldda been a contender,”) the democrats seem once again to select the person most unsuited to the role as their candidate.

from Zero Hedge

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz who never saw a Democratic he did not like or a Republican who should not be executed, amazingly admitted in trying to defend Hillary that she is 67 years old and too old to know what she is doing.

[ … ]

You cannot get around the fact that what she did was criminal for when all those emails were subpoenaed by Congress, she failed to produce them or inform Congress she had a secret personal email. That is outright OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE and anyone else would go to prison for 5 years. Then when they are discovered, she erases the files. Come on! Why are there three sets of laws – (1) for Democrats, (2) for Republicans, and (3) for the rest of us?

Then her supporter Ed Randel, Former Pennsylvania governor whose wife is a Federal Judge on the Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, argued with a straight face that Edward Snowden hacked the NSA so Hillary was entitled to keep a private server. Hillary’s security would be even less impressive on a computer at her home.

Come on. Rendell is a lawyer and he KNOWS the law. What Hillary did is an absolute criminal act – there is no exception if there is honestly one rule of law for everyone. Can you image what what have happened if Nixon just said sorry, I erased all the tapes. Tough shit!

So just as Obama’s supporters saying the fact that is was not an American Citizen, his fraudulent posing as a Kenyan student to get a free college education, his lying about his family history and the fact that the social security number he uses belongs to a man born over 100 years ago and was issued by the government of a state in which he never lived counted for nothing against the fact that he is ‘black’ so the democrats are now saying that hillary Clintons CV (a disastrous Secretary Of State, wife of a crooked former President and now a self confessed criminal) on top of evidence of senility counts for nothing against the fact that she is female.

US Puppet In Kiev Restarts War With Donbass Separatists

Back in February 2014, Victoria Nuland, the US Diplomat (ahem), whose famous open mic. moment revealed that once again the ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ had been right and the USA was behind the coup d’etat that deposed a corrupt, but democratically elected government and installed the neo fascist puppet government in Kiev, selected Arseniy Yatsenyuk as the Prime Minister of Ukraine. On Wednesday, March 18th, Yatsenyuk told his colleagues, “Our goal is to regain control of Donetsk and Lugansk.” With those words the Ukrainian Prime Minister tore up the Minsk agreement brokerd by German chancellor Merkel and France’s President Hollande and restarted Obama’s proxy war and the genocide of ethic Russians in Ukraine.

Yatsenyuk further announced: “Adequate financial resources are available,” to retake Donbass.”

Those “resources” come largely from the IMF, and from the United States, all with loans to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government. So that the investors will be paid the principal plus the extremely high interest on these junk-loans that are backed by their governments, Western taxpayers will ultimately be, basically, donating to Franklin Templeton, and to George Soros, and to the other financiers who are buying the Ukrainian Government bonds that will fiance the murder of thousands of ethic Russians in east Ukraine. Their blood will be on the hands of We The People though nobody asked us is we had anything against them.

Donetsk and Lugansk are the two districts comprising Donbass, the self-proclaimed independent region of Ukraine, which now calls itself “The People’s Republic” and sometimes “Novorossiya,” and which rejects the coup and its coup-imposed Government.

That Government of Ukraine is run by Yatsenyuk and the people whom he selected. Ukraine also has a President, who is elected by voters in the northwest of Ukraine, where the coup-government is accepted; but, since the coup, the Government has actually been run by Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, who is entirely dependent upon the United States Government and its subordinates (such as the IMF and NATO, in both of which the U.S. has veto-power) in order to obtain the financial and military support necessary to keep him in office.

Democracy is dead, the American government is determined to start an east west war. How much longer Russia and China will continue their policy of restraint in the face of constant American provocation is anybody’s guess.

Intel: in two or three weeks Kiev is expected to start a massive new offensive on Donbass. False flags, provocations and terrorist acts to sabotage, or make more difficult, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (WWII Victory Day) celebration in Russia on May 9th are also possible. Since Nemtsov murder near Kremlin, Russians are on full alert; therefore, I expect it won’t be possible in Moscow and/or the main Russian cities. But Ukraine and Donbass are a different story.

World War Three? Kiev Reinvades Donbass, Deliberate Provocation Trashed Minsk Agreement
When America wants to provoke Russia it uses proxies, a rabble in Libya, Islamic fundamentalists in Syria and Iraq and neo – Nazi thugs in Ukraine. So far Russia has resisted the urge to kick Obama in the balls, but sooner or later the Russia – China – Iran alliance will respond.

According to the expert of the Russian Military Sciences Academy Vladimir Prokhvatilov (null, confirmed by multiple intelligence sources in Donbass and Ukraine, Kiev is expected to start a new massive offensive on Donbass in order to surround and cut Donetsk off Lugansk, with simultaneous attack on Lugansk. We will recall that a similar recent attempt resulted in the Debaltsevo cauldron, where thousands of Ukrainian troops perished. This time, the result will be the same, but it appears Kiev doesn’t care about the result, it only cares about making the life of the Donbass people as difficult as possible, and about sabotaging Russian holidays.

Kiev has officially broken the Minsk agreements. Instead of pulling its heavy artillery away from the front lines in oder to create a demilitarized zone, Kiev is amassing heavy artillery, tanks and troops.

It is believed that they will attack during the sacred Orthodox Holiday – Pascha (Easter). Previous mass bombings of DNR and LNR, as well as mass attacks by Kiev on both republics, were all scheduled during an important holiday, in order to spoil people’s celebration. This year, Pascha is celebrated on April 12.

Tom Cotton says Iran must be stopped because ‘they already control Tehran’

With guys like this running things is it any wonder the world is teetering on the brink of all out war?

US Republican Senator Tom Cotton (Arizona) on Sunday cited Iran’s control of their own capital, Tehran, as a reason that the country had to be stopped from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Senator Tom Cotton, a man whose IQ is written on his face (source)

In a interview on CBS, Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer pointed out that Cotton’s letter to Iran, which was also signed by 46 other Republican senators, may have undermined President Barack Obama’s ability to get a nuclear deal with Iran.

“Let’s say the deal falls through, then what?” Schieffer wondered.

Cotton replied by quoting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“The alternative to a bad deal is a better deal,” the freshman senator insisted. “The Iranians frequently bluff to walk away from the table. If they bluff this week, call their bluff. Congress stands ready to impose much more severe sanctions.”

“Moreover, we have to stand up to Iran’s attempts to drive for regional dominance,” he continued. “They already control Tehran and, increasingly, they control Damascus and Beirut and Baghdad. And now, Sana’a as well.”

“They do all that without a nuclear weapon. What they would do without a nuclear weapon.”

Cotton told Schieffer that he had “no regrets at all” about sending the letter to Iran.

Not smart enough to know he’s stupid even. It fills one with confidence doesn’t it?

We Predicted An Orwellian Nightmare. Now Obama’s Ministry Of Love Is Identified

Obama's Ministry Of Love
Is this Obama’s Orwellian ‘Ministry Of Love’ that has featured in aa report in The Guardian? (Image source, Zero Hedge)

Back in 2008 we predicted pretty accuratly how things would turn out under Predident Barack Obama. We were not totally correct (well we are aBritish site) but where we erred it was on the side of caution. For example while it was easy enough to be aware that the egomaniacal former rent boy would become an authoritarian and imperialistic ruler who would turn the USA into a racially, religiously, financially divided Orwellian dystopia, we considered it would be going too far to actually say; “This clown will create a Ministry of Love where dissidents can be ‘re-educated’ in politically correct, stoner philosophy.

In ‘1984’, George Orwell’s novel of life in a brutal, authoritarian dictatorship, The Ministry Of Love, housed in a black walled, windowless building, is where those suspected of ‘Thought Crimes’ against the regime. In the total surveillance society, where telecreens moniored what happened in every home while broadcasting propaganda constantly, and when family members were rewarded for spying on each other and no neighbour could ever be trusted, guilt of Thought Crime was established by evidence of people acting, speaking or thinking against the regime, but also if they did not show sufficient enthusiasm in their support of it or their hatred of its fictional enemies, the manufactured hate objects which the regime used to keep the population in a state of fear.

The Ministry Of Love awaited all those accused of Thought Crime; to be accused was to be proved guilty. Housed within The Ministry Of Love was the notorious Room 101

Now the Obama regime has brought the Ministry Of Love and very probably a version of Room 101 out of the realm of fiction and into reality.

A Secret “Black Site” Revealed In Chicago: “When You Go In, You Just Disappear”

from Zero Hedge:
Located in a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side is where, according to the Guardian, one can find the domestic equivalent of a CIA “black site” – an illegal, off-the-books interrogation compound used by Chicago special police units, one which renders “Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside”; a place whose former occupants say is where you end up when you are “disappeared”; a place which confirms that when it comes to the eternal “who is better – us or them” debate, there really is no difference: “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.” It’s a Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib rolled into one. In short: it is a place where the US constitution and basic human rights have absolutely no access … [Read more]

US And Ukraine Governments Try To Scupper Minsk Pease Deal

My source for this story will surprise the war loving, death cult worshipping loonies who think they are reasonable left wing progressives. Such people are among that minority who think big government and authoritarianism are something do do with ‘the left’ (because the left is more cuddly?

So when they encounter a truth seeker whose narrative strays off the big govertnment, globalism, multiculturalism narrative, then without thinking they dismiss that person as a right wing nut job.

Reality is a bit more complicated however, so here, from The World Socialist Web Site is the real story on what is happening in Ukraine, and it confirms once again that the USA led by that hopey-changey, peacemaker and joy bringer The Obamessiah, Barack Obama, that facilitated the war in Ukraine by pushing a neo fascist right wing government into power for the purpose of provoking Russia into acts of aggression.

Gorbacev Slams Washington Madmen

Mikhail Gorbacev: No fan of the Obama Administration in Washington (Image Source)

The last leader of The Soviet Union, the man who presided over the dismantling of the old oppressive regime founded by the Bolsheviks and led Russia into the modern world has delivered an astonishing attack on the USA and its current leadership and the direction the ‘leader of the free world’ is taking the western allies.

In November 2014 Gorbachev warned “the world is on the brink of a new Cold War.” By late December, as the ongoing currency war developed he had upped the ante, saying he feared “a war of this kind could lead to a nuclear war,” hoping that no one “loses their nerve in this overheated situation.”

Yesterday, in an interview with Russian news agency Interfax, reported by Common Dreams, the 83-year-old former Soviet leader, asks “have they lost their minds?” raging that “the U.S. has already dragged us into a new Cold War, trying to openly implement its idea of triumphalism,” warning that “the ‘cold’ war will “lead to a ‘hot’ war.” He concluded “The U.S. has been totally ‘lost in the jungle’ and is dragging us there as well.”

2015 The Story Of China, Russia, Iran and The Petrodollar Death

Not long ago as mainstream media prematurely celebrated Obama’s vicory over Putin in the Currency Wars we took a look at some economic fundamentals. Russia’s government debt totals only 13.4% of its GDP. Its budget deficit in relation to GDP is only 0.5%. If we assume a US GDP of $16.8 trillion (the figure for 2013, its $18.4 trillion today), the US budget deficit totals 4% of GDP, versus 0.5% for Russia. The Fed is essentially a private corporation owned by regional US private banks and foreign investors and institutions (including the Dutch and British monarchies would you believe?), although it passes itself off as a state institution. US publicly held debt (The Fed’s holding of US Government treaury bonds) is equal to a whopping 74% of GDP in fiscal year 2014. Russia’s is only 13.4%.

The declaration of economic war by the US and EU on Russia, via the run on the rouble and the oil futures attack, was essentially a derivatives racket. Derivatives in theory may be multiplied to infinity. Derivative operators attacked both the ruble and oil prices in order to destroy the Russian economy. The problem there is that the Russian economy is more soundly financed than America’s.

Read our economic war predictions for 2014. We will not be 100% correct and we would not even dream on trying to match our critics 110% record – of being utterly wrong in their case, but we will be around 80%ish. If our governments could get even half that, the country might have a future.

Are Europe And USA Drifting Apart Over Warmonger President Obama’s Aggressive Attitude To Russia?

The entire foreign policy of the Obama Administration in the USA is based on having its European allies give a veneer of respectability to America’s warmongering, economic imperialism and blatant bullying of smaller nations. But has the rent bot President overreached himself in trying to bully Russia’s Vladimir Putin?

Unfortunately, in the nick of time it would appear, European leaders have woken up to the American scam. While German enviroloons have been forced to accept their green policies based on medieval wind technology have failed and eft the European Union’s most powerful (and the Euro zone’s only solvent) nation dangerously dependent on Russia for its energy needs, smaller economies have bee hit hard by American sanctions preventing them exporting to Russia.

The Russians on the other hand have found it easy to source the products they need from Africa, South East Asia and The Middle East.

Mainsteeam Media Suppressing News About Fligh MH17 Inquiry

Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Given the tarnished reputation of mainstream media after decades of its reporting only news favourable to establishment political and corporate interests, it ought not to surprise anybody that television and print news organisations have been suppressing news of developments in the quest to discover the truth about downed Malaysia Airlines Beoing 777, Flight MH17.

Read The Daily Stirrer post on this story:
Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Back in August the excellent Washington’s Blog reported a whistleblower leaking detains of a five nation conspiracy to make sure the truth about the shooting down of flight MH17 never emerged. Now why would they do that unless they knew the information would be damaging to US / EU leaders and their neo Nazi stooges in Kiev.

Here’s a snippet from that Washington’s Blog report:

Regarding what caused the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17 in Ukraine on July 17th, the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, reported in a brief Russian-language news story on August 12th, that four days earlier (August 8th) a representative of that nation’s Prosecutor General office, Yuri Boychenko, had said that (as auto-translated by google), “the results [of the investigation] will be announced upon completion of the investigation and with the consent of all the parties who signed the corresponding agreement.”

This UNIAN report said that, “As part of the four-party agreement signed on August 8 between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia [all of which nations are allies of the United States and are cooperating with its new Cold War against Russia], information on the investigation into the disaster Malaysian ‘Boeing-777’ will not be disclosed.” In other words: the official ‘investigation’ is being carried out by four nations that, as U.S. allies, are hostile toward Russia.

One of those four nations, Ukraine, is not only a prime suspect in possibly having shot this airliner down, but is currently waging a hot war to ethnically-cleanse the pro-Russian population out of southeastern Ukraine; and the initial ‘news’ reports in Western ‘news’ media regarding the downing of MH-17 had said that this airliner was probably downed by the local rebels there, who were trying to shoot down the Ukrainian Government’s bombers that are constantly bombing them.

Some Western ‘news’ reports even speculated that perhaps Russia itself had shot this airliner down. If the UNIAN news-report is correct, then there is no way that the ‘investigation’ will be able to be released to the public if it indicates that the Ukrainian Government (which, according to that news-report has veto power over the making-public of the study’s findings) is blamed for having shot the airliner down.

So How Has Ebola Changed?

ebola virus
Ebola virus

Previous outbreaks of Ebola were short lived and resulted an a few hundred fatalities at worst. So what has changed for the current Ebola crisis, which has now been going on for eight months to last longer and infect far more people than previously.

This Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, instead of being a local crisis has evolved into a major emergency with significant political, social, economic, humanitarian and security dimensions.

The suffering in affected region of West Africa and fears that the disease will spread into neighbouring states and beyond and beyond demand the attention of the entire world.

As a United Nations report explains, the outbreak is now the largest the world has known. The number of confirmed cases are reported to be doubling every three weeks. There will soon be more cases in Liberia alone than in the four-decade history of the disease.

As one would expect, nobody in Washington has been eager to explain exactly what a team from US University and the Department Of Defense Biological Weapons Research dept. was doing in their experiments involving the Ebola virus down in Sierra Leone for several years before the outbreak bagan, or why the US Government holds a patent on the Ebola virus. The government of Sierra Leone has seen fit to terminate the project and close the research centre however, which must give us grounds to suspect something dodgy was going on.

Jane M. Orient, M.D. writing for The Association Of American Physicians And Surgeons used the alarming headline Ebola: False alarm, or poor man’s atomic bomb?

It is well know of course that not only the USA but Russia and China and very likely the second division military powers, Britain, France, India, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey have been trying to create a biological weapon of mass destruction for many years. The big question are did the US Government intend to release whatever mutant form of Ebola the Tulane University / DARPA team created at this time, or did it escape, and: now it is out of the box, can they get it back in.

A few weeks ago I remarked in response to American scaremongering, that we in the west, because of our healthier environment and better nutrition probably had little to worry about. If what we are dealing with is a natural mutation of the Ebola virus, that still seems to be the case. If in fact the outbreak is a genetically modified version of the virus, then who knows what we are dealing with.

Oh Barack We Hardly Knew Ye

A brilliant blog post from Zero Hedge today, only indirectly related to the financial topics they usually comment on, it is a response to President The Emperor Obama’s latest foray into Foreign Policy and probably his stupidest move yet (and thast is very very stupid indeed) as he finally achieves what he has been trying to do for the past three years and insert the USA into to intractible sectarian wars in the middle east.

The Change You Can Believe In promised by The Obamessiah then turns out to be a change from uneasy peace to perpetual war. How very very Orwellian. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Tyler:

Barack, We Hardly Knew Ye
Submitted by Tyler Durden

With your drums and guns and guns and drums, hurroo, hurroo
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, hurroo, hurroo
With your drums and guns and guns and drums
The enemy nearly slew ye
Oh my darling dear, Ye look so queer
Johnny I hardly knew ye…..

This memorable stanza from the classic anti-war song could not be more apt with respect to Barack Obama. He became President because he campaigned across the land draped in the garlands of peace. Yet he has now promised to spend his final three years in the White House smearing his face with war paint and strutting around the imperial city marshalling his “drums and guns and guns and drums”.

And let’s be clear. The President’s so-called “counter-terrorism” campaign—-that special kind of violent eruption which isn’t a “war”—-is not really about punishing some barbarians who have beheaded two innocent Americans and who have also recruited perhaps a dozen not so innocent Americans to join their blood-thirsty ranks. Civilized adults just do not start a war on the other side of the world on account of such thin gruel, as horrific as the actions involved might be.

Indeed, based on his stated reasons for war—beheadings and venomous rhetoric—Obama is on the same slippery slope that Woodrow Wilson stood on when he sent two million American GIs into the senseless slaughterhouse of northern France. It was to vindicate the freedom of Americans to sail into war zones, even on armed belligerent ships, he said.

In the cold light of history, Wilson’s misbegotten crusade in behalf of an utterly untenable principle accomplished nothing more than to prolong a war which was already over in the spring of 1917 due to the mutual exhaustion and bankruptcy of both sides; and in so doing, he spawned the Bolshevik tyranny in Russia, the punitive peace treaty of Versailles, the revanchist evil of Nazi Germany and the world wars and cold wars which followed.

Are U.S. Airstrikes In Northern Iraq About Oil?

kurdistan oil
Is it a coincidence US humanitarian airstrikes are hitting an area where US oil companies have huge investments (picture source)

Last week the rent boy President, Barack Hussein Obama authorized American airstrikes against the ISIS (Islamic State) fighters in Iraq. Obama justified his intervention by describing it as a “humanitarian effort.” Taken at face value that seemed true, the air strikes, though probably the wrong approach and one that may reap a terrible harvest for American interests around the world, was intended to save thousands of Yazidi sect members trapped on a mountain by the ISIS forces. The Yazidi are considered heretics by the fanatical Sunni Muslims who form the rebellion.

Obama made one slip, not picked up immediately (mea culpa) by mainstream media or the blogosphere whe he said it was also “an effort to protect our American personnel.”

The one word keyword he managed not to mention was “oil,” but as ever black gold lies near the center of American motives for intervention.

The United States with UK RAF support, is making airdrops of aid to the beleagured Yazidi who have fled before the advance of Islamic State militants, but is also conducting airstrikes around Erbil, which is to the east of the Yazidi area but is the centre of the Kurdistan oilfield.

There are American consular personnel in Erbil, but they could be evacuated if necessary. What Obama left unsaid was that Erbil, a city of 1.5 million, is the capital of the Kurdish oil industry, which accounts for about a quarter of Iraq’s oil. The Kurds claim that if they were to become an independent state, they would have the ninth-largest oil reserves in the world. And oil wells are near Erbil.

If the Islamic State were to take over Erbil, they would endanger Iraq’s oil production and, by extension, global access to oil. Prices would surge at a time when Europe, which buys oil from Iraq, has still not escaped the global recession. On Thursday, American oil companies Chevron and Exxon Mobile began evacuating their personnel from Kurdistan.

In portraying American intervention in Iraq as a purely humanitarian effort, Obama is following the script he read from in Libya, when he justified American intervention as an effort to prevent a massacre in Benghazi. Need I say anything more?
