Welcome to Amerika: NYPD Officers Beat the Crowds … and the Charges

NOVANEWS

Two New York Police Department command officers will not be charged for videotaped incidents in which they appeared to use excessive force against Occupy Wall Street protesters.

 

by Dave Hummels

According to the New York Times, Erin M. Duggan of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office stated, “The district attorney’s office has concluded, after a thorough investigation, that we cannot prove these allegations criminally beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna was filmed dousing non-violent demonstrators with pepper spray. Apparently, they had the audacity to object while being corraled into pens like farm animals. Bologna faced internal department discipline, including loss of vacation days. The deputy inspector is being sued and so far, NYPD is refusing to provide him with legal assistance.

Deputy Inspector Johnny Cardonna was filmed spinning protester Felix Rivera-Pitre around and punching him in the face. Unlike Bologna, the Huffington Post reports that Cardonna will receive NYPD support for his legal defense. According to HuffPo, “other video apparently showed Rivera-Pitre with a clenched fist as though he was preparing to strike the veteran NYPD supervisor.”

The incident involving Cardonna may be more equivocal than Bologna’s cowardly use of pepper spray. But if Rivera-Pitre displayed a “clenched fist,” maybe he was provoked by NYPD’s absurd overreaction to street protest. The actions of Cardonna and Bologna were certainly not isolated incidents during Occupy protests.

Conor Friedersdorf of The Atlantic reviewed a report produced by several university law clinics, highlighting allegations which he found to be “… most credible, whether due to video footage of the incident or eyewitness testimony from a credentialed journalist, a designated legal observer, or a member of the legal team that put together the report.” Those incidents  include a videotaped police attack on a cafe employee who stepped outside to film the protest; an officer driving a scooter into the middle of a crowd, injuring a legal observer; police assaulting protesters for no apparent reason; and police intimidation of and assaults on journalists and legal observers.

With all this in mind, it seems like a good time for the NYPD to engage in some self-reflection. But many in policing see only misunderstood heroes who are entitled to blind adoration from the public when they look in the mirror.

It is no secret that there is a vanguard of sorts in policing which celebrates the fascist tendencies of the occupation. The Denver, Colorado officers who wore shirts with the slogan “we get up early to beat the crowds” after the 2008 Democratic National Convention exemplify this attitude. These officers truly believe in keeping “those people” — the poor, “uppity” minorities, “hippies,” activists, “dopers” and leftists — “in line.” And they are fully dedicated to their unstated mission: Sweeping signs of dissent under the rug, lest we frighten America’s fragile, pants-wetting, bourgeois elements.

In spite of the abuse, US protesters rarely become violent toward the police. It remains to be seen whether non-violent tactics will suffice when officers like Anthony Bologna and his porcine “brother” John Pike elude legal responsibility, even when their actions are filmed.

Here’s a training update for US law enforcement: Your impunity will breed resistance.

EXCLUSIVE: Cowardice Redefined, The New Face of American Serial Killers

NOVANEWS

Op-ed by Vic Pittman 

“I saw men, women and children die during that time. I never thought I would kill that many people. In fact, I thought I couldn’t kill anyone at all.” – Former US drone operator Brandon Bryant

Predator Drone
theepochtimes.com

(SAN BLAS, Mexico) – A little after 10:00 p.m., and a serial killer is getting ready to make his move. He has watched and waited for this moment for some time.

He watches his victim get out of a cab and dig in his pockets for money. Two of his children run out to the porch to greet their daddy. The killer presses a button and watches as the victim, the taxi driver and the two children are vaporized. Other people in the house, the man’s wife, parents and three other children are badly injured and burnt by the high explosive.

The house next door partially collapses, killing an elderly woman and injuring her grandson. But this is just the beginning.

Neighbors and emergency personnel arrive and begin trying to help the victims. There is chaos…children screaming, people wailing and the cries of the burnt and injured. Several people are trapped under rubble.

When enough people have gathered, the killer presses the button again. Fifteen seconds later, all those at the scene are vaporized or blown to shreds. The killer high-fives his partner. In two hours he will be off work! They are planning on driving in to Las Vegas, have some cocktails maybe pick up some girls.

Brandon Bryant, 27, from Missoula, Montana, spent six
years in the Air Force operating Predator drones from
inside a dark container. But, after following orders to
shoot and kill a child in Afghanistan, he knew he couldn’t
keep doing what he was doing and quit the military.

On the other side of the world, at the crime scene, the misery, grief and suffering is just beginning. The gathering and grouping of body parts, the burials, the amputations and lifetime medical traumas, the traumatized children, the destroyed lives. But tonight in Vegas, it is party party party for this 22-year old serial killer from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, some 7550 miles away from the carnage. The biggest threat he will face tonight is a hangover tomorrow.

He is a drone “pilot”. He and his kind have redefined the words “coward”, “terrorist”, and “sociopath”. He is the new face of American warfare. He is a government trained and equipped serial killer. But unlike Ted Bundy or John Gacy, he does not have to worry about getting caught. It is his job.

One thing that the drone terrorism/assassination program has revealed to the world is how racist we Americans are. American life is precious… when Americans die we expect the entire world to weep at our feet along with us. Three Americans die in a senseless act of violence and murder at the Boston Marathon, and the entire country grieves and the president makes heartfelt speeches. Where were all the speeches and expressions of grief when the US bombed the school in Chenagai, Afghanistan? Didn’t hear about that senseless act of violence and murder? Of course not.

This is from the UK newspaper The Tribune.

    “It is one of the worst incidents of the entire drones campaign, yet one of the least reported.
    A CIA strike on a madrassa or religious school in 2006 killed up to 69 children, among 80 civilians.
      The attack was on a religious seminary in Chenegai, in Bajaur Agency.CIA drones attacked on October 30, flattening much of the school. Their target was reportedly the headmaster, a known militant. But dozens of children were also killed, the youngest aged seven.”
      (see:

http://tribune.com.pk/story/229844/the-day-69-children-died/

Wow. So the CI next decides that the teacher of this school needs to be killed. They do not kill him on his way to school, or when he is alone. They wait until he is at the school full of children, THEN they send the missiles.

They PURPOSELY wait until they can kill dozens of children too. Could Satan himself top this act of pure evil? If there is a

Hell, there is a special place for the murdering, drug running, child killers known as the CIA. Hitler’s SS were Cub Scouts in comparison.

When the CIA decided that they wanted to kill a 16-year old American kid named Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki, they waited until he was in a Yemeni restaurant with two of his teenaged friends. A drone operator fired the missiles and not only the intended victim, but eight other people died.

This is from Wikipedia:

 

    “Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki was a 16-year-old American citizen who was killed while eating dinner at an outdoor restaurant in an airstrike by an armed C.I.A. drone in Yemen on October 14, 2011. The attack also killed two of his teenaged friends and five other people in the restaurant, which was reduced to rubble. He had no connection to terrorism and was searching for his father Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed by an airstrike by an armed C.I.A. drone two weeks prior to the death of his son.”

 

Dr. Mona Kazim Shah with a drone strike victim

By the way, Obama approved that strike, according to the New York Times. Tough guy. A real leader. Child killer.

Would that ever happen in the US?

Say if a non-government sanctioned serial killer like Jeffery Dahmler was in a Burger King, would the police or FBI blow up the entire restaurant and kill everyone else inside to get him ? If a really bad guy…robber, rapist, murderer was found to be in his house some night with his wife and four small children, would the police blow up the entire house and everyone in it to get the bad guy? Would the CIA bomb a school full of children in Colorado (where the 16 year old was from) to kill ONE teacher? No, because we value AMERICAN life.

Our damned military and the ghouls who give them their orders are rapidly changing for the worst, how we are perceived in the world. We are murderous, racist thugs, killers of children, bombers of weddings and funerals. The “logic” given for bombing weddings and funerals is that there might be someone attending that they want to take out. So, our Nobel Peace Prize winning president and the serial killers he employs just kill as many people as possible.

If they were at the wedding of someone who might be related to someone possibly involved with trying to get the foreign invaders out of their country, well they were probably “terrorists”, and the children would probably grow up to be terrorists, so kill em all.

This is racism at it’s most extreme. We can kill them like mice because they are not like us. We lie, invade, destroy, kill and then we call THEM “savages”. WE are the most brutal, arrogant and sociopath society this earth has ever seen. We criticize the Jews for calling themselves the Chosen Ones, yet we act as if we are the only people on the planet that matter.

“Well”, you might be thinking, “this rant does not apply to me. I am not in the military, I am not an ‘aviation warfare specialist’ as the joystick/drone operators in their ‘flight suits’ are called. I don’t like this crap any more than the author of this piece….”

My question then would be “What are you doing about it?”

Have you called your congressmen and senators and told them that you will only support those politicians who sincerely and repeatedly call for an end to the drone murder program?

About the only thing I feel that I can do about it at this time is try to raise awareness. Anyone can do that in their everyday conversations with others. Letters to the editor are good. Do something or know that by your silence you are aiding and abetting evil in it’s purest form.

Even a “Drones are Evil” bumper sticker would be a start.

 

 

You would probably be surprised and maybe encouraged by how many others would comment on it. I believe that there should be a drone operator website where these punks are “outed”. We need a drone operator list with names, pictures and addresses… I want to know if my neighbor, my child’s friend’s father, or the newly hired town cop is or was a murdering serial killer.

If so, they need to be treated like any other murderers.

They need to know even a bit of the terror that they inflict on others. They need to worry every single day, like the way Afghan and Pakistani parents worry, many now not sending their chidren to school because of the American/NATO habit of bombing schools, picnics and any gathering of people.

Can you imagine being afraid to throw a wedding for your child because a bored 22-year old “aviation warfare specialist” on the other side of the world may decide that it could be a terrorist get together and blow it up? That is the reality of life for many people in the world today, especially in Northern Pakistan.

And do you think that this killer drone business will not come to our shores?

Do you think that the same people who plan, approve and carry out strikes on weddings and houses full of children, who blow up an entire restaurant and everyone in it to kill a 16 year old American kid..do you think that these people would hesitate to do the same thing here if they felt a need to?

They kill children but are too nice to do it here?? “They wouldn’t do that to us….that’s crazy talk!” Remember Waco? There were children there. Twenty-eight of them.

Sooner or later we are going to see a scenario like this…in the United States. A citizen shoots down a surveillance drone flying over his property. The government responds with an armed drone and blows the citizen to shreds. No risk to “law enforcement”, call the guy a terror suspect and classify the information so that no one can look any further into it.

The message will be sent to the other uppity citizens that if you mess with us, you will die…today.

And consider this the next time you hear of a “terrorist” bomb, a suicide bombing or a car bomb going off somewhere. The giant V-2 rockets that Germany deployed during WWII were invisible to the naked eye when they hit. These rockets were 46 feet long, nearly 6 feet in diameter, and had a 12 foot wingspan. They were the size of, and looked like, the finned rockets in old science fiction movies.

Hellfire missiles, which US drones use, are less than five feet long, seven inches in diameter, and have a 13″ wingspan. By my rough calculations, nearly three hundred Hellfires could fit into a V-2, yet these giants were invisible when they hit. How much more so the Hellfires?

And by the way, do you know how many car bombs had been set off in Iraq before the American/British invasion?

Zero.

 

 

Even with all the “sectarian strife” that we were told we must invade to prevent. Look it up..not one recorded car bombing incident until the Americans and Brits got there. Coincidence? I think not.

So if a drone fires a missile at a car in a crowded market and it explodes, it becomes a “car bomb”? In Gaza, shops, houses and cars blow up routinely and it is usually attributed by the Israelis to a bomb blowing up prematurely. You can only use that so many times however, before people start to question things.

I am afraid that we are to the point however, where they do not care about our impressions of their actions as long as we are “shock and awed” enough to fear resisting. Everything the government does, it does gradually…like frogs in a cooking pot, we adjust to each little infringement, each loss of freedom, each “sacrifice” that we are asked (ordered) to endure “for the good of the country”.

One day we wake up and realize that we have become slaves to a cartel of profiteers that do not give a damn about us or The United States or the world. We are their tools, their pawns to be used and disposed of as they see fit. They use one group of us to wipe out another group of us, but we are all their pawns… Americans, Iraqis, Pakistanis, whatever.

We are being distracted and manipulated by “nationalism” – by people who have no allegiance to any country. Their loyalty is to power and wealth. They believe that they should rule the world.

When I was growing up, in the movies, cartoons and comic books, the people who wanted to “rule the world” were ALWAYS the bad guys….remember? How did that change? It didn’t… wanting to dominate the world remains the wet dream of the most evil amongst us.

The real war going on is a class war. But it is very narrow class indeed which does the ruling..maybe the top 3%. They use fear, nationalism, “patriotism”, religion, race, sexual preferences… anything they can to get us to fight each other, but what we always have is one group of poor bastards killing another group of the same so that evil people who have nothing but disdain for all of us can continue to grow in power and wealth.

We average Americans are too nice. We think that our “leaders” are nice also. We cannot imagine lying to the whole world to create a war for profit, or bombing a restaurant full of people to kill a 16-year old kid but they can and have. We cannot imagine torturing people to death, but they can and do. We could not imagine that they would kill 2200 of us on 9-11 to get a war going, but even the government appointed 9-11 commission members do not believe the official story that they say they were railroaded into endorsing. Polls show that a majority of the world does not buy it either.

So, do I think that even massive public pressure would change things, that the US military and the CIA would stop using and promise not to use killer drones anymore, or if they did make such a promise it would be kept? Not for a second. They are here to stay. I think that the only thing we can do is make it as difficult as possible for them. Make them go to a little more effort to cover their tracks. Harass drone-promoting politicians… make them worry. Send a letter to General Atomics, the ghouls that build these Predator drones.

Here is their address:
General Atomics
PO Box 85608
San Diego, California 92186-5608

If you think that their products are shitty, maybe the best way to express that is to send them some……shit! Got a dog? Maybe a cat? There you are… you are just a stamp and an envelope away.

We have generated a lot of well-justified hatred. If Americans were digging through rubble of weddings, restaurants and schools looking for their victims of Chinese drone strikes, I think it is safe to say that we would hate the Chinese.

I would try to figure out a way to fight back if I could. Wouldn’t you?

And if Chinese drones were killing Europeans or Japanese in their houses, their restaurants, I would boycott all things Chinese. Despite all our wealth and WMDs, we are just 5% of the world’s population. How long can we spit in the faces of the other 95% and not receive serious repercussions?

We use force to resolve differences, but we are an especially warlike society. The rest of the world will simply ignore us, reject us, and starve us out. Remember the fall of the South African apartheid government? That regime lasted a decade longer than it would have only because of loans from AMERICAN banks. The rest of the world had closed it’s doors on the racist regime.

Drone operator

No one likes murderous bullies, except it seems, other murderous bullies. Things are going to change. I am surprised that it hasn’t happened already. We are raised to think that the whole world admires us and wants to be like us. That may have been the case in the past, but we have become so brutal, hypocritical and arrogant that those days are over. The beautiful young maiden that the world embraced last night has been revealed to be an ugly, syphilitic old whore with bloodstained hands in the morning light.

The honeymoon is ending quickly…

We need to realize that an American boycott could very well happen. Sadly, only then will a huge number of us realize that we have been on the wrong side of history. Many of us will dig in with the “right or wrong, it’s us against them” mentality. But most of us, I believe, are good, decent people who wish no harm to anyone. We just want to live our lives the best we can and hopefully raise our children in a happy and peaceful world. And most of us realize that all around the world everyone else is, with very few exceptions, the same.

For most of us our only sin is our silence.

That is how history will judge us.

People want to feel proud of themselves, of their country, of their military. We resist realizations that shatter that perception. It is tough to realize that at this point in time, we are indeed “the bad guys”, and we should be ashamed for allowing this world-threatening cancer to grow in our name. But we are continually bombarded with lies and misinformation by a “government” that we were raised to trust and believe in.

What will our overlords do when they realize that we see through their lies, and their time is up? What will they do when our servicemen and women start refusing orders en mass? And how many innocents have to die before that point is reached? THAT is up to us.

“If there be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” – Thomas Paine

Syrian officials deny use of chemical weapons

NOVANEWS

syrian

news.yahoo.com

Two Syrian officials denied Friday that government forces had used chemical weapons against rebels, the first response from President Bashar Assad’s regime to U.S. assertions that it had deployed such weapons during the 2-year-old civil war.

On Thursday, the White House and other top Obama administration officials said that U.S. intelligence had concluded with “varying degrees of confidence” that the Syrian governmenthas twice used chemical weapons in its battle against rebels trying to oust Assad.

In the Syrian capital of Damascus, a government official said Assad’s military “did not and will not use chemical weapons even if it had them.” Instead, he accused opposition forces of using them in a March attack on the village of Khan al-Assal outside of the northern city of Aleppo, the largest in Syria. The official said theSyrian army had no need to use chemical weapons because it can reach any area in Syria it wants without them.

He spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements.

His comments were echoed by Sharif Shehadeh, a Syrian lawmaker, who said the Syrian army “can win the war with traditional weapons” and has no need for chemical weapons.

Syria’s official policy is not to confirm nor deny it has chemical weapons.

Shehadeh called the U.S. claims “lies” and likened them to false accusations that Iraq possessedweapons of mass destruction — a claim U.S. policymakers had used to justify the invasion of that country in 2003.

“What is being designed for Syria now is similar to what happened in Iraq when Colin Powell lied in the Security Council and said Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction prior to the U.S. invasion and occupation of that country,” he said.

President Barack Obama has said that the use of chemical weapons would be a “red line” that could result in a significant military response. But the administration said on Thursday that the new revelation won’t immediately change its stance on intervention.

Following the Khan al-Assal attack, the government called for the United Nations to investigate alleged chemical weapons use by rebels.

Syria, however, has still not allowed a team of experts into the country because it wants the investigation limited to the single Khan al-Assal incident while U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging the Syrian government to accept an expanded U.N. probe into alleged chemical weapons use.

“They want this team to be similar to the inspection teams in Iraq that destroyed the country after it became clear that it was all a great lie,” Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said in comments published on Syria’s state-run news agency SANA.

On the streets of Damascus, the conflict dragged on Friday. Government troops pushed into two northern neighborhoods, triggering heavy fighting with rebels as they tried to advance under air and artillery support, activists said. The drive was the latest in a days-long offensive by government forces in and around the capital, an apparent bid to secure Assad’s main stronghold against rebel challenges.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the fighting between rebels and soldiers backed by pro-government militiamen was concentrated in the Jobar and Barzeh areas. The Local Coordination Committees, another activist group, said troops also used mortars and multiple rocket launchers to bombard the nearby neighborhood of Qaboun.

SANA said troops killed five rebels in clashes near the main mosque in Jobar. It added that many other “terrorists,” the term the government uses for rebels, were killed in the area and the nearby neighborhood of Zamalka.

The regime has largely kept the rebels at bay in Damascus, although opposition fighters control several suburbs of the capital from which they have threatened the heart of the city. Last month, government troops launched a campaign to repel the opposition’s advances near the capital, deploying elite army units to the rebellious suburbs and pounding rebel positions with airstrikes.

The Observatory also reported clashes in Aleppo between rebels and Kurdish gunmen in the contested Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood. It also said there was fighting around the sprawling Abu Zuhour air base in the northwestern Idlib province.

Syria’s conflict started with largely peaceful protests against Assad’s regime in March 2011 but later degenerated into a civil war, which has left an estimated 70,000 dead.

NAZI soldiers will not face criminal charges as Gaza flotilla deal to become Turkish law

NOVANEWS

Pro-Palestinian activists wave Turkish and Palestinian flags welcoming the Marmara.

Turkish media reports Israel will also compensate 70 Turkish citizens injured aboard the Mavi Marmara.

Haaretz

The agreement between Israel and Turkey over reparations to the Gaza flotilla victims’ families is slated to brought before Turkey’s parliament in Ankara for approval. According to senior Israeli officials, once it passes, the agreement will be legislated into a law that will prevent Turkish citizens from filing of criminal charges against Israel Defense Forces soldiers and officers involved in the Gaza flotilla incident.

This week, another round of talks between the Israeli and Turkish teams is scheduled to take place. The Israeli team will include former national security adviser Yaakov Amidror and former Foreign Ministry director-general Yosef Ciechanover, while the Turkish delegation will be headed by Turkish Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu.

The time and location of the talks have not yet been determined, yet Israel has already suggested it should take place in Jerusalem. The Turks want to show progress on talks with Israel before Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan heads to Washington on May 16. Meanwhile, since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be traveling to China on May 5, there isn’t much time left to meet and sign an agreement.

Turkish government lawmakers found a way around the legal proceedings against IDF officers and soldiers, notwithstanding that the families have refused to pull the claims filed in the last three years. These are primarily criminal charges filed in an Istanbul court against former Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, head of military intelligence Amos Yadlin and other senior Israeli officers.

Once the reparations agreement is approved by the Turkish government, it will then be voted on in the parliament as a binding international treaty . After these two proceedings, the agreement will become a law. According to section 90 of the Turkish constitution, in such a situation, the new law supersedes the authority of the courts to deal with the affair.

The senior Israeli official also specified that the agreement with Turkey will be submitted for approval by the Israeli government as well, so that its status becomes that of an international treaty.

Meanwhile, the Turkish newspaper Today’s Zaman reported that in the first round of talks in Ankara a week ago, Israel agreed to pay reparations not only to the families of the nine victims killed on the Mavi Maramara, but also to 70 Turkish citizens who were wounded when IDF soldiers took over the ship.

The sides have not yet finalized the exact amount that Israel will pay, but in a draft agreement being currently discussed, they have decided to set up a Turkish government humanitarian fund for compensating the victims’ families as well as those wounded. Israel will transfer money to that fund and the Turkish government will use it to pay the families.

In the event that Turkish citizens sue for reparations from Israel after the signing of the agreement and the courts rule in their favor, Israel will not be forced to pay any additional compensation – rather it will come out of this fund.

Syria: Chemical weapons used by rebels came from Turkey

NOVANEWS

Damascus calls claims by US, Britain that regime used weapons a ‘barefaced lie,’ blames West for wanting repeat of ‘Iraqi scenario’

Times of Israel

The chemical weapons used by rebels in the Aleppo countryside likely arrived from Turkey, Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi charged on Saturday.

Zoubi was quoted in the Syrian state agency SANA saying that the missile which targeted the village of Khan al-Assal near Aleppo in late March was launched not far from the Turkish border, where rebels have a stronghold.

The Syrian government made a request to the UN that the incident be investigated, Zoubi pointed out to the Russian news network Russia Today.

The minister also accused the West of lying about charges that the Assad regime had attacked villages with chemical weapons.

“First of all, I want to confirm that statements by the US Secretary of State and British government are inconsistent with reality and a barefaced lie,” he told Russia Today on Saturday. “I want to stress one more time that Syria would never use it – not only because of its adherence to the international law and rules of leading war, but because of humanitarian and moral issues.”

“Their aim is, first, to cover those who are really behind use of chemical weapons in Khan al-Assal, and secondly, to repeat Iraq’s scenario, to pave the way for other investigation inspections. To provide, based on their results, maps, photos of rockets and other fabricated materials to the UN, which as we know, opened the way to the occupation of Iraq,” he added.

The charge that the weapons arrived via Turkey came a day after Syrian officials countered that the rebels were the ones who had used them.

The rebels accuse regime forces of firing chemical agents on at least four occasions since December, killing 31 people in the worst of the attacks, and warned that world inaction would only encourage Assad to use them on a larger scale.

Both sides have used the issue to try to sway world opinion.

The Obama administration said that intelligence indicates government forces used the nerve gas sarin in two attacks.

“For the Syrian government to utilize chemical weapons on its people crosses a line that will change my calculus and how the United States approaches these issues,” said President Barack Obama on Friday.

The Ties That Bind Washington to Chechen Terrorists

 NOVANEWS
To scan the list of  major American  supporters of the  Chechen  secessionist movement, which at some points can hardly be distinguished from Chechen terrorists financed by U.S. allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar, is to be reminded of  some of the  most notorious U.S. Cold War players.

CIAby Wayne Madsen Evidence is mounting that the accused dead Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, allegedly killed during an April 19 shootout with police in Watertown, Massachusetts, became a «radicalized» Muslim while participating in a covert CIA program, run through the Republic of Georgia, to destabilize Russia’s North Caucasus region… The ultimate goal of the CIA’s campaign was for the Muslim inhabitants of the region to declare independence from Moscow and tilt toward the U.S. Wahhabi Muslim-run governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The Western corporate media largely ignored an important story reported from Izvestia in Moscow: that Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended seminars run by the Caucasus Fund of Georgia, a group affiliated with the neo-conservative think tank, the Jamestown Foundation, between January and July 2012. The U.S. media reported that during this six month time frame, Tsarnaev was being radicalized by Dagestan radical imam «Abu Dudzhan», killed in a fight with Russian security forces in 2012. Tsarnaev also visited Dagestan in 2011. However, in documents leaked from the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs’ Counterintelligence Department, Tsarnaev is pinpointed as being in Tbilisi taking part in «seminars» organized by the Caucasus Fund, founded during the Georgian-South Ossetian war of 2008, a war started when Georgian troops invaded the pro-Russian Republic of South Ossetia during the Beijing Olympics. Georgia was supported militarily and with intelligence support by the United States and Israel, and the American support included U.S. Special Forces advisers on the ground in Georgia. The Georgian intelligence documents indicate Tsarnaev attended the Jamestown Foundation seminars in Tbilisi. The Jamestown Foundation is part of a neo-conservative network that re-branded itself after the Cold War from being anti-Soviet and anti-Communist to one that is anti-Russian and “pro-democracy.” The network not only consists of Jamestown and the Caucasus Fund but also other groups funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Open Society Institute (OSI). Georgia has become a nexus for the U.S. aid to the Russian opposition trying to oust President Vladimir Putin and his supporters from power. In March [2010], Georgia sponsored, with CIA, OSI, and British MI-6 funds, a conference titled ‘Hidden Nations, Enduring Crimes: The Circassians and the People of the North Caucasus Between Past and Future.’ Georgia and its CIA, OSI, and British intelligence allies are funneling cash and other support for secessionism by ethnic minorities in Russia, including Circassians, Chechens, Ingushetians, Balkars, Kabardins, Abaza, Tatars, Talysh, and Kumyks». The March 21, 2010 conference in Tbilisi was organized by the Jamestown Foundation and the International School of Caucasus Studies at Ilia State University in Georgia. If Georgian counter-intelligence documents have Tamerlan Tsarnaev attending Jamestown conferences in Tbilisi in 2011, could the Russian FSB have tracked him to the Jamestown Hidden Nations seminar in March 2010? In any event, a year later the FSB decided to contact the FBI about Tsarnaev’s ties to terrorists. The first Russian request to the FBI came via the FBI’s Legal Attache’s office at the U.S. embassy in Moscow in March 2011. It took the FBI until June of 2011 to conclude that Tamerlan posed no terrorist threat but it did add his name to the Treasury Enforcement Communications System, or TECS, which monitors financial information such as bank accounts held abroad and wire transfers. In September 2011, Russian authorities, once again, alerted the U.S. of their suspicions about Tamerlan. The second alert went to the CIA. By September 2011, Russian security agencies were well aware that the Hidden Nations seminar held a year earlier was a CIA-sponsored event that was supported by the Mikheil Saakashvili government in Georgia and that other similar meetings had been held and were planned, including the one that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was to attend in Tbilisi in January 2012. At some point in time after the first Russian alert and either before or after the second, the CIA entered Tamerlan’s name into the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment list (TIDE), a database with more than 750,000 entries that is maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center in McLean, Virginia. The Jamestown Foundation is a long-standing front operation for the CIA, it being founded, in part, by CIA director William Casey in 1984. The organization was used as an employer for high-ranking Soviet bloc defectors, including the Soviet Undersecretary General of the UN Arkady Shevchenko and Romanian intelligence official Ion Pacepa. The Russian domestic Federal Security Bureau and the SVR foreign intelligence agency have long suspected Jamestown of helping to foment rebellions in Chechnya, Ingushetia, and other north Caucasus republics. The March 21 Tbilisi conference on the north Caucasus a few days before the Moscow train bombings has obviously added to the suspicions of the FSB and SVR. Jamestown’s board includes such Cold War era individuals as Marcia Carlucci; wife of Frank Carlucci, the former CIA officer, Secretary of Defense, and Chairman of The Carlyle Group [Frank Carlucci was also one of those who requested the U.S. government to allow former Chechen Republic ‘Foreign Minister’ Ilyas Akhmadov, accused by the Russians of terrorist ties, to be granted political asylum in the U.S. after a veto from the Homeland Security and Justice Departments], anti-Communist book and magazine publisher Alfred Regnery; and Caspar Weinberger’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Kathleen Troia «KT» McFarland. Also on the board is former Oklahoma GOP Governor Frank Keating, the governor at the time of the 1995 Murrah Federal Building bombing. Cooperating with Jamestown in not only its north and south Caucasus information operations, but also in Moldovan, Belarusian, Uighur, and Uzbekistan affairs, is the ubiquitous Open Society Institute (OSI), another cipher for U.S. intelligence and global banking interests. OSI’s Central Eurasia Project has sponsored a number of panels and seminars with Jamestown. Russian security indicated in their first communication with the FBI that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had changed drastically since 2010. That change came after the Hidden Nations conference in Tbilisi. U.S. support for Chechen and North Caucasus secession came as a result of a public statement on August 2008 by GOP presidential candidate John McCain that «after Russia illegally recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Western countries ought to think about the independence of the North Caucasus and Chechnya». Upon becoming President in 2009, Barack Obama adopted McCain’s proposal and authorized CIA support for North Caucasus secessionists and terrorists with money laundered through the USAID, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Open Society Institute, Freedom House, and the Jamestown Foundation. In January 2012, Obama appointed an OSI activist and neocon, Michael McFaul of the right-wing Hoover Institution at Stanford University, as U.S. ambassador to Moscow. McFaul immediately threw open the doors of the U.S. embassy to a variety of Russian dissidents, including secessionists from the North Caucasus, some of whom were suspected by the Russian FSB of ties to Islamist terrorists. Whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev was always a CIA asset and participated in a “false flag” operation in Boston and became an unwitting “patsy” in a CIA plot, much like “U.S. Marine “defector” to the Soviet Union Lee Harvey Oswald became a “patsy” in President Kennedy’s assassination, or he was indeed radicalized in an attempt to infiltrate him into the ranks of the Caucasus Emirate and decided to defect and carry out a terrorist attack against the United States may never be known. If the latter is the case, Tsarnaev is much like Osama Bin Laden, once a CIA fighter in the field in Afghanistan who allegedly decided to launch a jihad against the United States. If Tsarnaev was a “patsy” like Oswald, that might explain the setting off of an incendiary device at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston ten minutes after the twin bombings at the Boston Marathon. After Boston Police stated the fire was caused by an explosion, the Boston Fire Department went into cover-up mode and tried to claim the fire could have been caused by someone tossing a cigarette on to flammable material

Rabbi: Don’t bury Jewish son next to his Gentile father

NOVANEWS

Nahariya chief rabbi refuses to allow burial of Genadi Drobitsky  next to his son Igor, who was killed in 2002 terror attack in Hebron, as he is not  Jewish. Family  forced to wander between cemeteries, confront Chevra Kadisha organization  before finally  laying father to rest

ynet 

A family’s request to lay to rest a resident of the northern city of Nahariya, who asked to be buried in the local cemetery’s bereaved parents’ section, was turned down by the city’s religious authorities and chief rabbi because the deceased was not Jewish, Ynet has learned.

The man, Genadi Drobitsky, passed away last week. His son, Staff Sergeant Igor Drobitsky, was killed in a terror attack during in Hebron during the Second Intifada.

The family members were forced to wander between four cities before finally being able to bring their father to burial. His eldest son went from the Nahariya Municipality to the local council of Shlomi, the Akko cemetery and the Chevra Kadisha offices, in a humiliating journey which took a heavy mental toll on him.

According to Nahariya’s Chief Rabbi Yeshayahu Meitlis, “Jews are buried in the Jewish cemetery of Nahariya. In the cemetery in (Kibbutz) Cabri they are building a new section for non-Jewish citizens.

“We can’t do anything about the fact that his son is buried there. The father cannot be buried there because he’s not Jewish. Fallen IDF soldiers who are not Jewish and died in battle are buried in the military ground in the same cemetery. If the father were buried in Cabri, he wouldn’t be buried next to his son in any case. It doesn’t matter if he is buried in Cabri, Kfar Masaryk or Akko.”

Drobitsky and his wife, Eva, arrived in Israel in 1996 and settled in Nahariya. Before his death, Genadi asked to be buried in the bereaved parents’ section in Nahariya, as close as possible to his son, Igor, a medic who was killed in November 2002 in a terror attack on the “worshippers’ route” in Hebron. He was killed alongside 11 other soldiers in a battle with Islamic Jihad terrorists, including the commander of the IDF’s Hebron Brigade, Colonel Dror Weinberg.

After his death, Igor’s family received a citation on his behalf from the army.

Genadi died last week after battling cancer. In his final days his eldest son, Roman, was busy searching for a burial place for his father.

“The head nurse at the oncology ward told me I should start looking for a grave for my father, because they might cause trouble over the fact that he is not Jewish,” says Roman. “We called the Nahariya Municipality, and the deputy mayor’s assistant told us that we wouldn’t be able to bury father next to Igor in the bereaved parents’ section, because he’s not Jewish according to the Halacha.”

The Municipality and Chevra Kadisha sent Roman to bury his father at the Sha’ar Menashe cemetery, near Hadera, some 80 kilometers (48 miles) from his Igor’s grave.

The family preferred a closer place, and with the help of the Yad Lebanim association of the families of fallen soldiers and the Department of Families and Commemoration in the Ministry of Defense, they found a place in the Akko cemetery at half the price charged from people who are not residents of the city: NIS 12,500 ($3,500).

At the same time, however, the family learned that the father could be buried even closer to Nahariya – at the cemetery in the town of Shlomi.

The funeral was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, but around noon Roman received a phone call from a cemetery representative, who told him that Shlomi Council head Gabi Naaman refused to let Drobitsky be buried there because he was not a town resident.

Three hours before the planned funeral, the family members were forced to return to the Akko Municipality to coordinate a burial in the city cemetery. But their troubles didn’t end there, as Roman was asked to pay up – in cash – before the start of the funeral. “But I didn’t have all the money in cash, and there was no way I could raise the rest,” he says.

‘Insensitivity and foolishness’

Luckily, Nahariya Mayor Jackie Sabag was informed of the affair several minutes later and ordered the Municipality to cover the burial expenses.

“They eventually paid up, after showing insensitivity and foolishness, and after we have been running around for several days looking for a grave,” says Roman.

The Nahariya Municipality released the following statement in response: “A permit for burial at the bereaved parents’ section in the city’s military cemetery is provided by the Defense Ministry’s Department of Commemoration. The Municipality does not issue permits.

“In the old cemetery in Nahariya there is no room for a civil burial section, and the civil burial at the new cemetery has yet to be completed. The mayor, due to his strong appreciation for the son’s bravery, helped to locate a grave in a place close to Nahariya. A burial place was found in Akko – the best solution under the circumstances. The burial expenses were covered by the Nahariya Municipality.”

The Defense Ministry spokesperson said that the Jewishness of deceased bereaved parents was not examined thoroughly by the Ministry, and that the Chevra Kadisha organization and the local authority were responsible for that.

“The burial of deceased who are not soldiers is conducted in the authorities by Chevra Kadisha. All civil bereaved parents’ sections are under the responsibility of Chevra Kadisha. The Defense Ministry’s job in this case is to confirm to the local authority that the person is a bereaved parent and that his son is buried in the military ground in that city. The religious issue is irrelevant. We take care of all religions.”

China: H7N9 Outbreak to Potentially Become Deadliest in History with Over 20% Mortality Rate

NOVANEWS

With over a 20% mortality rate, the H7N9 could be the new threat that globalist opportunists will be sure to extort.

 

KUNMING, CHINA – APRIL 10: (CHINA OUT) A technician conducts tests for the H7N9 bird flu virus at the Kunming Center for Disease Control (CDC) on April 10, 2013 in Kunming, China. As of yesterday, China has confirmed five new cases of H7N9 in Shaoxing, Jiangsu and Shanghai. So far, China has reported 33 H7N9 bird flu cases, including nine deaths.

BEIJING — As of Thursday 109 people have been confirmed to be dead from the H7N9 virus which emerged rather quickly this April after the typical flu season.

Human-to-human transmission has not yet been documented. However, reports from the World Health Organization state that 40% of the victims did not have contact with any type of poultry raising concern amongst the medical community.

Even more alarming is the fact that the virus has over a 20% mortality rate right out of the gate. If this proves to continue, we could possibly be looking at one of the most deadly viral outbreaks of all time. This is backed up by others such as journalist, Patrick Di Justo, who wrote, “As of today, dividing the number of confirmed cases by the number of deaths makes it look as though H7N9 is an especially bad flu, with a twenty-per-cent mortality rate. If true, this would be terrifying: the 1918 Spanish Flu, which has been called one of the deadliest plagues in human history, also had a mortality rate of around two percent.”

Some are equating the recent H7N9 outbreak to the 2009 H1N1 swine flu, which proved to be a money maker for vaccine manufactures worldwide while also paving the way for fast-tract vaccination manufacturing with no accountability. This was all achieved through WHO regulation, policy and international treaties which essentially supersede US law in most cases allowing vaccine manufactures to rake in immense profits while adding any ingredients to their cocktails they wish. Once again putting taxpayer dollars into the pockets of select private corporations.

Now in 2013 with the newly emerging H7N9, we see the same pattern as it has been reported that, “For now, the C.D.C. is working with pharmaceutical manufacturers to reverse-engineer H7N9 in order to help develop a potential open-source (i.e. freely shared ) vaccine, if a special vaccine becomes necessary.”

Once again we see the rhetoric, pre-positioning of assets, information, propaganda and advise, all working in conjunction to give the world the perfect Problem, Reaction and Solution.

While for now the media circus (hype) is not in full swing, likely one Monday in the near future we will wake up with networks hyping it across the board. And yes I said Monday. Why you ask? It’s simple. So the establishment can make use of the full weeks media cycle to condition the general public to take their shot.

In fact, the official CDC statement downplays the virus stating that, “Human infections with a new avian influenza A (H7N9) virus continue to be reported in China. The virus has been detected in poultry in China as well. While mild illness in human cases has been seen, most patients have had severe respiratory illness and some people have died. No cases of H7N9 outside of China have been reported. The new H7N9 virus has not been detected in people or birds in the United States.

An investigation by Chinese authorities is ongoing. Many of the people infected with H7N9 are reported to have had contact with poultry. However some cases reportedly have not had such contact. Close contacts of confirmed H7N9 patients are being followed to determine whether any human-to-human spread of H7N9 is occurring. No sustained person-to-person spread of the H7N9 virus has been found at this time.

Human infections with avian influenza (AI, or “bird flu”) are rare but do occur, most commonly after exposure to infected poultry (Bird-to-human spread). Limited person-to-person spread of bird flu is thought to have occurred rarely in the past, most notably with avian influenza A (H5N1). Based on this previous experience, some limited human-to-human spread of this H7N9 virus would not be surprising. Most important, however, is that this transmission not be sustained (ongoing).

Influenza viruses constantly change and it’s possible that this virus could become able to easily and sustainably spread between people, triggering a pandemic. CDC is following this situation closely and coordinating with domestic and international partners. CDC takes routine preparedness actions whenever a new virus with pandemic potential is identified, including developing a candidate vaccine virus to make a vaccine if it were to be needed. CDC also has issued guidance to clinicians and public health authorities in the United States, as well as provided information for people traveling to China. This is an evolving situation and there is still much to learn. CDC will provide updated information as it becomes available.”

 Treatment
According to officials and Wikipedia, “Currently, no vaccine exists for H7N9, but antigenic and genome sequencing suggests that H7N9 is sensitive to neuraminidase inhibitors, such as oseltamivir and zanamivirOseltamivir is also known under its trade name Tamiflu.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has begun sequencing and development of a vaccine as routine procedure for any new transgenic virus. The CDC and vaccine manufacturers are developing a candidate virus to be used in vaccine manufacturing if there is widespread transmission.

In response to a request from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), and after the H7N9 flu virus gene sequences were made available through the Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data (GISAID), the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) and Synthetic Genomics Vaccines, Inc. (SGVI) began working with Novartis to synthesize the genes of the new viral strain and supplied these synthesized genes to the CDC.”

New Section of Landing Gear Found in New York, Investigators Claim From 9/11 Attacks

NOVANEWS

by Shepard

Was a section of airplane Landing gear recently found in a primarily Islamic community in New York (said to be from one of the planes which hit the twin towers during the September 2001 attacks) planted to reaffirm the official 9/11 story to the populace?

 

According to CNN a part of the landing gear off one of the airliners used in the September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center was found wedged between a building in New york recently.

CNN reported, “The part was discovered Wednesday by surveyors, whom were hired by a property owner. They called 911 to report that they’d found “apparently damaged machinery,” the police said.

“The NYPD is securing the location as it would a crime scene,” the statement said.

Access to the area is being restricted until the medical examiner’s office completes a health and safety inspection.

“We are cooperating fully with the appropriate authorities to make sure this piece of evidence is removed with care as quickly and effectively as possible,” said Sharif El-Gamal, president of Soho Properties, the owner of 51 Park Place.

But the attorney for El-Gamal, Adam Leitman Bailey, questioned whether the piece of the landing gear was planted.

“It is impossible. It was absolutely planted and I’m happy to go on air saying so,” he said, adding that thousands of people have protested in the area against the planned community center.

Asked why he thought someone would have planted it, he said: “Let me think, I got over 5,000 hate e-mails. I got sued personally twice. I have blogs against me. So any number of them could have done it.”

In fact in the CNN piece it actually points out how Bailey questions if the landing gear was planted.
