Cry Some More

NOVANEWS

After a US spy plane was intercepted over the Black Sea by a Russian fighter jet, the US Navy released a whole series of videos depicting the incident from different angles, and complaining that the interaction was apparently “unsafe”.

The videos released by the US military show how a Russian Sukoi Su-27 supermaneuverable fighter jet intercepts a US EP-3 Aries signal intelligence (SIGINT) plane flying over the Black Sea, with the distance between the two planes at times apparently being no more than five feet.

The Russian Ministry of Defense replied that the intercept was carried out in order to prevent the Aries from violating Russian airspace and added that the Pentagon may want “to issue new maps with correct Russian airspace borders to all the crews.”

The Truth Behind the US Meeting Between Russian Intel and “Fixer” Pompeo

NOVANEW
This was an unprecedented visit

…from  Press TV, Tehran

Update: We have been getting denial of service attacks on the website starting a few minutes after Gordon’s note went up. Probably just a coincidence 🙂 . Keep us posted in the comments what you are experiencing… Thanks, JD

FSB chief, Sergei Naryshkin

Senior Editor’s note:  There are two subjects of discussion.  Top among them is eliminating anyone who can testify as to the two dossiers, both of which could be independently confirmed.  Trump was burned in Moscow and is a “KGB Mole.”

We know Mike Flynn was burned in Moscow and Trump knew it.  We believe Russia asked Trump to appoint Flynn.  He was burned in 2015 at an RT dinner and afterward, his son in attendance along with friends of ours, fellow journalists and diplomats in Russia.

They described his performance, his ranting against America in particular and his hand out asking for cash.  He took $55k and asked for much more.  We suspect he was promised the moon.  The FSB believed they owned Flynn and could use him to steer Trump who they believe is unstable and unfocused.

I was subjected to an FBI interview as part of this investigation.  It was my impression they were simply doing their job.

Now it comes down to where we are now, with Russia and the US at odds.  Did Russia meet with Donald Jr., Manfort, Page and others about rigging the US election.  The evidence is in and admissions made and a Flynn plea.  The charges might well have been much more serious.

What we are looking today is Naryshkin and Pompeo meeting.  Pompeo is hardly a CIA director, he is a minor DC thug and public relations guy.  He is hugely out of his depth as is so often the case with CIA directors.  Assume the CIA isn’t American at all, not since Reagan anyway, and you begin to understand.

The second issue, the one we promised, is this.  They, Pompeo for Trump and Naryshkin and “getting their stories straight.”  Putin is a master spy.  He would have never, by my estimation, authorized anyone to meet with a pack of greedy morons to rig an American election but it seems it happened anyway.

Evidence indicates that Trump knowingly had operatives meet with a foreign intelligence agency to rig an American election.  He would do it, we all know it, he has no sense.  Those around him are idiots as well, gangsters and fools.  They did it, they are guilty, this is treason, a constitutional crisis, and they have to be arrested and imprisoned or the whole charade of our pretend government will unravel.

What some of us also see is the hand of Putin’s enemies, the Turkish and Russian/Khazar “oligarchs,” read “mob bosses” that have been behind Trump since 1982 when Roy Cohn, real mob boss and Trump mentor, introduced him around as an “idiot on the make” for helping launder drug cash.

Less than a decade later, the Soviet Union was kaput, the Soviet prison emptied and the worst of them heading to the US, coffers loaded with cash from the Soviet Commercial Banks of Belarus, Ukraine and Leningrad.  This was a CIA operation begun in Poland in 1990, breaking into the KGB by smuggling American cigarettes.  After that Soviet bankers were invited to the US and burned.

A deal to loot the Soviet Union was set up with help of Senator’s Kennedy and Sarbanes, banking capabilities created, and Trump was one of the outlets for an initial tranch of $320m of stolen cash.   The meeting was at the Pierre setting it up.  Guess who sat next to Senator Sarbanes at that meeting?

How it began, getting rid of the Soviet Union, was the holy grail of the CIA for decades.  That it was done with political hacks and has backfired with them taking over us is in reality “high humor.”

But is it Russia or is it Russian born criminals who represent not Israel but a massive crime syndicate that blends right in with Wall Street, the oil and defense companies and Sheldon Adelson’s Israeli congress?

Are you getting the picture?  We began with next to no American government at all after two rigged Bush 43 elections.  If Russia really took over, if Putin was really running America, things would start working better.

Instead, Trump is burning America down while the 1% is being handed the keys.  No, our oversimplistic views of who is what don’t fit.  Our hope here, and listen carefully, is if John Kerry steps in.  This seems to be the plan and Kerry is just dirty enough that congress loves him. Byden does not have the gravitas.

[ Editor’s Note: This was quite a curve ball here, having a small parade of top Russian Intel people flying to Washington to pow wow with the CIA. Even Congress wanting to know what was going on, is limited from doing so, as it is a sieve when it comes to leaks.

What they could have been discussing is anyone’s guess as there would be so much to talk about, including the possibility of laying out that if the US continued sanctioning Russian government officials, Moscow would have to start releasing its treasure trove of US “interfering in elections” all over the world.

Insiders know that is one of the CIA’s main jobs, and all the Congressional old timers know it, too. None of this would ever be admitted to, of course. But when Trump converted his new list of sanctions targets into a “potential list” as a “deterrent”, that was a strong hint that some rethinking might have gone on.

Putin had already publicly signaled that there would be a strong response to new sanctions, and quickly. This which was quite a break from the past where Moscow has always carefully weighed the pros and cons of taking reciprocal action, showing concern of not wanting to get into a spiraling down of relations via an endless cycle of sanctions and counter sanctions.

Pompeo brushed off any claims of the Russians having the US over a barrel,  “while Russia remains an adversary, we would put American lives at greater risk if we ignored opportunities to work with the Russian services in the fight against terrorism.”

And we must not forget that the US supplied Russian Intel with the material to breakup the St. Petersburg attack, for which Putin was quick to say thank you. Pompeo also stated that neither side was ever shy about discussing its difficulties with the other.

We will have to wait for some leaks to appear (unlikely) to know more, and then have to weigh whether they are fake or real leaks, another part of the game … Jim W. Dean ]

– First published … February 02, 2018 –

The heads of three Russian intelligence agencies traveled to the United States to meet with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, amid a series of political rifts between the two sides over US President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russian officials and Washington’s renewal of sanctions against Moscow.

The Russian embassy in the US confirmed Tuesday that Sergei Naryshkin, head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS), was in the US to discuss the fight on terrorism with Pompeo.

CIA director Mike Pompeo

It has now been revealed in a report by The Washington Post that accompanying Naryshkin during the trip were two other chiefs — Alexander Bortnikov, director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), and Colonel General Igor Korobov, chief of the Russian General Staff’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).

According to the Post, Bortnikov also met with the CIA chief but it was not clear which American officials Korobov had met with.

A senior US intelligence official in Moscow also headed back to Washington to partake in the meetings, an unnamed US government source familiar with the matter told the paper.

The encounters raised concern among some US politicians, who interpreted them as signs of the Trump administration’s willingness to work with Moscow despite concerns at home about the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

While the meetings between Russian and American spymasters are not unheard of, current and former US officials told the Post that this particular trip by so many heads of Russian intelligence agencies was unprecedented.

Pompeo defends meeting

After facing heavy criticism from Democrats, specially Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer who said “there was something untoward” in the meetings, Pompeo said Thursday that the meetings were nothing out of the ordinary.

“While Russia remains an adversary, we would put American lives at greater risk if we ignored opportunities to work with the Russian services in the fight against terrorism,” Pompeo said. “We cover very difficult subjects in which American and Russian interests do not align,” he added.

Schumer had specifically asked for more details about Naryshkin, who is on Washington’s sanctions list, and that whether the trip had anything to do with the Trump administration’s refusal this week to impose new sanctions against Russia.

The Trump White House had until Monday to implement a sanctions bill against Moscow but instead informed lawmakers that the legislation, which was passed last year, was already “serving as a deterrent.”

The trip also came days before Washington released a list of 114 Russian politicians and 96 “oligarchs” close to the Kremlin upon a request by Congress. Bortnikov is among the sanctioned senior Russian officials.

US media did not rule out a possible connection between the meeting and Washington’s decision to shelve the sanctions bill for the near future.

As Expected, Press Prostitutes Lie Through Their Teeth About House Intelligence Committee Report

NOVANEWS

Why the Republicans, armed with enough information to smash the FBI, Obama DOJ, DNC, and presstitute conspiracy, can’t put their act together is a mystery.

The House Intelligence Committee’s report on the FBI/DOJ deception of the FISA court has now been released. I have read the so-called “Nunes Memo.” As far as I can tell, the report from the House Intelligence Committee says exactly what the previously released Memorandum Opinion and Order from the FISA court itself says. I posted the court document —  MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER — and explanations of it — here — and — here.

The FISA court document, declassified and released, contains confessions from both the FBI and DOJ that the agencies misled the court and falsely acquired surveillance permission. The FBI and DOJ mischaracterize their deception of the court as “mistakes.” The agencies provide the court with improvements in their procedures so as not to make “mistakes” in the future.

NSA Director Adm. Rodgers

Why did the FBI and DOJ rush to confess to the FISA court? The reason is that NSA Director Adm. Rodgers discovered their illicit spying, investigated it, and let it be known that he was reporting the FBI and DOJ malfeasence to the FISA court. Adm. Rodgers also informed President Trump.

All of this is known. Yet the House Intelligence Committee and the White House released the “Nunes Memo” without pointing out that it was already confirmed by the FISA court itself and by NSA Director Adm. Rogers. Why?

One consequence of this continuing Republican incompetence is that it allows the presstitutes, who also know about the FISA court memorandum, to ignore that confessions validating the “Nunes Memo” are in the hands of the FISA court. Consequently, the presstitutes, such as the CNN whores, are at their dirty dishonest work of misrepresenting the documented facts in the House Intelligence Committee report as “Nunes’ allegations,” “Nunes’ assertions,” “a disputed GOP intelligence memo that alleges FBI abuses,” and so forth. See, for example CNN report: Disputed GOP-Nunes memo released with Trump’s approval

We know that there is not an ounce of integrity in the presstitute media and no respect whatsoever for truth. The press prostitutes are a lie factory. Nothing else can be said for them.

CNN’s Jim Sciutto: Trump’s ‘Creating His Own Reality’ on Russia

CNN presstitutes Pamela Brown and Jim Sciutto misrepresent documented findings of the House Intelligence Committee, findings backed up by the released FISA court document, as a “highly controversial memo” that “is the most explicit Republican effort yet to discredit the FBI’s investigation into Trump and Russia, alleging that the investigation was infused with an anti-Trump bias under the Obama administration and supported with political opposition research.”

Are Pamela Brown and Jim Sciutto so utterly incompetent that they are unaware that endless emails reveal the anti-Trump bias and that the Steele dossier was paid political opposition research? How can anyone pretending to be a reporter pretend not to know the available documented undisputed facts?

The FBI, that is, the criminal organization that should be indicted for conspiracy against the United States, alleges falsely that “the memo omits key information that could impact its veracity.” It does not.

You can find the same information in the FISA court document. Moreover, Adm. Rogers can be put on the stand, and he can confirm that the FBI and DOJ misled the FISA court to obtain permission to spy for partisan political reasons.

Why the Republicans, armed with enough information to smash the FBI, Obama DOJ, DNC, and presstitute conspiracy, can’t put their act together is a mystery.

Afghanistan: The New Surge

NOVANEWS
By BG Simon Sharaf

Going by US media, the next US surge in Afghanistan is imminent. It is certain that this will not be like Obama Surges that petered into nothingness. It will neither be based on COIN Strategy advocated by General David Petraeus, who is convinced that Pakistan bashing is unreasonable. Will it have advice from General Stanley A. McChrystal, once the commander of JSOC, and a special military force for impossible. Not likely because he too believed in engagements on the political side. Most likely, it means carrying the battle into Pakistan in an ill-conceived calculus of cost-benefit analysis.

To concentrate more ground troops in a hostile terrain that favors the adversary for a cause already lost is unrealistic. US forces lack the training and commitment to launch ground assaults. Given battle fatigue and casualties of fifteen years, a military surge is unlikely. So what shape will this frenzy of killing and not winning hearts and minds take? Latest news indicates that military commanders have a carte blanch to violate Pakistan’s air and ground space to create international diplomatic crises. Generals and not politicians will set the pace of conflict. Diplomacy will only be a fire fighting unit.

President Trump is a late convert. During the many briefings at State Department, CIA and Pentagon, he learned that statecraft is led by an invisible state, is cold blooded and much beyond riding a crest of human emotions. In August 2017 he recanted and announced a military surge with a proviso that US preoccupation will be ‘killing and not nation building’. He let the cat out of the bag with a nasty tweet.

Strategic and military analysts wondered how a victory would be possible when bulk of NATO and US forces had already withdrawn and many bases that US built were evacuated for Afghan forces comprising ethnic minorities of the country. If the end means relationship is not Peace, the only option left is Broad Spectrum Coercion.

That intelligence based operations could countervail but for what purpose? Covert use of force, non-kinetic offensive (Pakistan) some face savings drones (Pakistan), use of allies (India) and the long air arm will focus on Pakistan. The war rather than policy is led by an invisible arm.

Afghan Conflict is predominantly a Social Dimension of warfare (Michel Howard, Forgotten Dimensions of Strategy) and unless the battle for winning hearts and minds does not begin, all other methods will fail. Though USA may have a small intelligentsia of western educated Afghans who hold offices in the government and talk fiery rhetoric, the majority is weary of US intervention. If the US preoccupation will be killing and not nation building, it leaves a question mark on the winning.

Dire situation in Afghanistan is not a realisation coming late. It is an admission USA never wanted. It is based on a narrative that can destabilise. USA wants to persist with a stalemate. The issue is not Afghanistan but the threatened perforation of the containment ring (Nation: January 20, 2018, End of Geostrategy).

Immediately after President Trump’s change of heart, American media and research organisations began a process of researching the truth. They came up with repetitive maps of who controlled what. It was a view from the refracted end of the prism with a colour blind vision. Though these graphics can be misleading they are also revealing. The opinions and conclusions were alarming and reinforced perceptions that neither USA nor the ANA were in control of affairs. Most, the typology of foes was alarming. Thereafter, maps produced by Long War Journal, Foreign Policy and New York Times started spinning a story that necessitated a surge.

Voids in Afghanistan have existed for the past century and dominated by war lords, criminals and tribal chieftains. Soviet Union placated them with money but they deserted when CIA gave more. Complementary alliance of sorts bonded Afghanistan. USA is lukewarm on its own quadrilateral dialogue that China is keen to pursue. Use of soft power to resolve a crisis is anathema. Trump talks tough and wants to prove tough. It wants China and Russia to do nothing with its latest plans.

Control of any area depends on interior and exterior lines of communications. Afghanistan presents a situation where all expanses and voids are dominated or controlled by hostile forces. The widely interspersed urban centers are small pockets where American and Afghan Forces enjoy some level of control. Intercommunications between these dispersed redoubts are vulnerable and dangerous. The air arm reduces the reaction time but does not enhance control. Certainly this is not conventional military thinking in mountainous areas.

Long War Journal is critical of this policy and writes that “US military has described these rural regions controlled or contested by the Taliban as “less vital areas” that have “less strategic importance.” It sums up with a remark that neither side has the capacity to win. It views the CIA and Pentagon assessment of the situation in Afghanistan to rather optimistic disinformation during the closing stages of Vietnam War. USA did not withdraw but retreated from Vietnam. It is these insignificant areas from where the resistance forces launch their operations in urban centers and ones USA used against Soviets.

When a strategy is mythical, a logical end-means relationship is impossible. President Trump is proving that myths are indeed part of his briefs.

Analysis of various maps produced since 2009 tell a different story.

The only constant is a map produced by Agha H. Amin in 2009. It is remarkably similar to the map produced by General Stanley A. McChrystal in his memoirs of 2013. The major revelation is the mapping of various strains of Afghan resistance bonded together by ideology, power, money and drugs. These are Taliban supported by Pakistan, India, Iran and Russia, Al Qaeda, warlords for whom insurgency is a profitable economy, criminals, drug and gun running mafia and the grey that crisscross as contractors. There is no central command, yet they control about 70% of Afghanistan, what USA calls voids.

In the days when ISIS was still taking shape, New York Times reported on June 14, 2017, that, Tora Bora the mountain redoubt once Osama bin Laden’s fortress fell to the Islamic State, handing the extremists a significant strategic and symbolic victory. Strategically, this force could irk Iran, Russia, China and Pakistan. Symbolically it explains why this happened and a measure of days to come. (Nation, 17 July 2017: Tora Bora, The emerging redoubt). Is this the vanguard of the new surge?

In August 2017, New York Times reinforced this story with a map that appears to be very accurate and revealing. It confirms the doubts the either both USA and Afghanistan are complicit or too weak to control a situation that is more lethal than the much maligned Haqqani Group.

Along Pakistan-Afghan border from Chitral to Chagai, presence of ISIS has been shown in red. According to Russians, this surge was facilitated by USA. Nangarhar is the most concentrated. These are Fazal Ullah led TTP, Jamat ur Ahrar (Mohmand-Bajaur), and Afghans. TTP with Afghan travel documents extends right into Kunar in Nuristan. Some Punjabi, Baloch and Sindhi elements have sanctuaries in Kandahar and Helmand. With the help of Sunni dissidents in Iran, they enjoy external support from the Gulf. They also share ideology with Jundallah of Iran.

The dangers to Pakistan from these redoubts were so grave that in 2017, Pakistan’s ground and Special Forces had to launch infantry operations to plug the valleys and terrain opposite Tora Bora.

It is expected that during this surge a carrot and stick policy will be imposed on Pakistan. Placation will be in form of releasing some aid and promise of more. But as time passes the stick will become bigger and carrot smaller. Pakistan must continue the strategic defiance with peaceful means and let USA raise the ante. The social dimension of conflict is in Pakistan’s favour.

Kurdish Forces Use NATO Weapons Against Turkey

NOVANEWS

Image result for The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG LOGO

The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) launched a big counter-assault in the northwestern countryside of the Afrin region against the Turkish backed rebels in the Bulbul District on Thursday, but where is the YPG getting it’s weapons from? Sputnik spoke to Turkish military analysts to find the answer.

Pentagon spokesman Major Adrian Rankin-Galloway responding to a question from a Hürriyet correspondent, on whether the armed forces of Turkey and the United States will clash in Manbij, and commenting on the situation around Afrin, said, “Those armed forces now in Afrin are not groups with which we cooperate in the fight against Daesh. We do not provide them with support in the form of weapons and do not engage in their training.”

Speaking to Sputnik Turkey about the possibility that the weapons in possession of the YPG can’t be purchased on the black market, security expert Mete Yarar said, “Is it possible to find in the world’s black market such anti-tank missile systems as Milan, TOW and AT4? Of course not. In recent days, the YPG from time to time publish images of weapons that are used in the Afrin area against Turkish tanks and military. We know that these weapons weren’t previously supplied by the US to the Kurdish forces to fight against Daesh. If these weapons are in the Afrin area, then the US statements that the “Democratic Union Party (PYD) uses these weapons only in the territories east of the Euphrates ceases to be valid.”

Yarar also noted that these weapons had been repeatedly used against Turkish soldiers in Turkey by the fighters of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

“We came across these weapons not only in the Afrin area. It was used earlier in Turkey in the districts of Çukurca and Şemdinli. As a result of the attacks by guided missiles released from these weapons, a large number of our military personnel were killed and wounded. Later these weapons were seized from terrorists during clashes. At the moment, it is being determined where are these weapons coming from, through the US or coalition forces,” Yarar said.

In his turn, ex-Lieutenant-General of the Turkish Armed Forces, Erdogan Karakus, stressed that many NATO countries, since 1984, have been supporting the PKK.

“The Germans, the French and the Italians since 1984 have provided the PKK with as much assistance as the US. In our military museum in Harbiye there’s an exhibition dedicated to the fight against terrorism. Back then, the PKK fighters could not produce explosives on their own, so many mines and ammunition came to them from Germany, Italy, France and other NATO countries. Some of them, after detection and neutralization, we placed as exhibits in the museum,” said Karakus.According to Karakus, during the seven years of war in Syria, weapons freely moved from one region to another.

“Earlier, Afrin was in the hands of the Free Syrian Army, then it came under the control of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), which transported the weapons it possessed. While Turkey didn’t begin the operation “Shield of the Euphrates,” it was not possible to trace exactly who and how moved through Northern Syria, let alone the flows of weapons. In addition, from time to time the PKK/PYD cooperated with Daesh,” he added.

“Summarizing, we can say that the delivery and transfer of weapons in this region isn’t very difficult. Prior to Russian military presence in the region, the weapons were delivered to Kurdish formations by airplanes landing at the local airfield, without any obstruction,” Karakus concluded.

Since January 20, Turkey has been conducting a military operation in Syria’s Afrin, an area is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces-affiliated and US-backed YPG militias, which Ankara considers to be linked with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has been waging an armed conflict in Turkey seeking autonomy and equal rights for the Kurds in the country.

According to Ankara, Turkish army and its allied Free Syrian Army rebels won’t fight Damascus during the campaign, which in being conducted in respect of the Syrian territorial integrity. However, Damascus has firmly condemned the operation as an assault on Syria’s sovereignty. Moscow, in turn, has urged all the parties to exercise restraint and called for respect for Syria’s territorial integrity.The Turkish military campaign in Afrin and nearby regions was launched after the US had announced its plans to train a 30,000-strong border force in northern Syria mostly from YPG fighters, which are considered as terrorists by Ankara. Washington’s move was harshly criticized by Turkey, with President Erdogan threatening to “strangle” the forming “terrorist army.” Within a week after the announcement, Ankara launched an offensive in Syria’s Kurdish enclave of Afrin code-named Olive Branch and aimed at eliminating terrorists in the region.

The views and opinions expressed by Mete Yarar and Erdogan Karakus are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect those of Sputnik.

New World Order Agents Lie About Syria—Again

NOVANEWS

New World Order agents continue to bark, but they seem to be like chihuahuas now. Hopefully this is not an insult on lovely chihuahuas out there.

Whenever you read the news and meditate on current events, make sure you do some reading on psychopaths and mass murderers. Gordon Duff rightly declared in 2015 that:

“If you kill more than dozen people as a sniper and you aren’t guilty of murdering innocent civilians, I would be very surprised.

“If you are insane enough to convince yourself, let’s say you are in Afghanistan or Iraq, countries where it is legal for any civilian to carry a weapon and no sane person would go outside without one, that shooting ‘armed Muslims’ makes you a hero, you are both a liar and a fool.  You are probably also a psychopath….”

A psychopath, generally speaking, is a person “who does not care about other people, and who is usually dangerous or violent.”

When such a person is unrestrained and is unleashed upon society as a whole, that person’s behavior has the potential to manifest itself in “aggressive, perverted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse.”

Robert D. Hare of the University of British Columbia declares that those people can be “charming” but “deadly.” “Their hallmark is a stunning lack of conscience,” he continues. “Their game is self-gratification at the other person’s expense. Many spend time in prison, many do not.”[1]

Hare adds, “The most obvious expressions of psychopath—but by no means the only ones—involve flagrant violation of society’s rules.”[2] Those psychopaths usually use “charm and chameleon-like abilities to cut a wide swath through society” and leave “a wake of ruined lives behind them.”[3] In that sense, psychopaths function “without the restraints of conscience.”[4]

In short, all psychopaths have “a deeply disturbing inability to care about the pain and suffering experienced by others…a complete lack of empathy, the prerequisite of love.”[5]

In the same vein, Kent A. Kiehl of the University of New Mexico argues that psychopaths are pathological liars; they lack empathy, guilt and even remorse. More importantly, they generally do not want to accept the consequences of their actions.[6]

Sadly, this characterizes the New World Order ideology in the Middle East, particularly in Syria. These people are obviously psychopaths who want to destroy the Middle East for Israel. And since they don’t have a vibrant strategy, since their diabolical ideology has been exposed time and again, they keep summoning the same old lies!

Get this: US officials have recently declared that Assad is probably developing chemical weapons.[7] We were also told that “it was ‘highly likely’ that Syria had stockpiled some of its weapons after the 2013 intervention, the Trump administration officials said in a briefing reported by Reuters.”[8]

The evidence? Well, it is “highly likely,” and that itself is the evidence. And since “highly likely” has progressively become a statement of fact, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson moved on to propound:

“Russia’s failure to resolve the chemical weapons issue in Syria calls into question its relevance to the resolution of the overall crisis. Russia ultimately bears responsibility for the victims in eastern Ghouta and countless other Syrians targeted with chemical weapons since Russia became involved in Syria.”[9]

People like Tillerson, as Gordon Duff would have put it, want perpetual wars, and “War is about thugs with guns working for banks and oil companies, for drug cartels and crooked politicians…” Those crooked politicians have their headquarters in Israel, under the guiding principle of Benjamin Netanyahu, a psychopath who never ceases to drink the blood of innocent lives in the Middle East, particularly in Syria at the moment.

Will people of reason pay attention to those psychopaths? Will they eventually forge another coup in Syria? The world, particularly Russia, is no longer asleep. New World Order agents continue to bark, but they seem to be like chihuahuas now. Hopefully this is not an insult on lovely chihuahuas out there.

Amnesty International Tied to Torture

 NOVANEWS
Image result for Amnesty International LOGO

Technical mistake unveils that Amnesty International is collaborating in the concealment of torture crimes

“We are giving you 48 hours to do so, otherwise we will take legal actions [against you]”, said Amnesty International to a lawyerless torture victim, after he offered this NGO abundant documentation to prove without a shadow of doubt, that the Belgian regime is systematically violating the UN Convention Against Torture and that UN officials knowingly allow this violations.

After several years diligently ignoring the denounces of xenophobic discrimination, human right violations and torture, sent to them by a victim of heinous crimes against humanity, Amnesty International finally gave signs of life… but not precisely to defend the victim or to honor their proclaimed “principles” and “humanitarian” mission in favor of human rights. On the contrary, the resulting situation clearly shows that Amnesty International couldn’t care less about discrimination, about asylum-seekers rights, about human rights and about torture victims rights. In fact, the only reason they exceptionally bothered to answer instead of ignoring the victim as they normally do, was because they made a technical mistake: a misconfiguration in one of their e-mail accounts, that when received the denounce of the victim, automatically resend it to others from an Amnesty International address. And since their IT department was unwilling to accept their error and responsibility, they thought it was more convenient to blame the sender of what their own server was doing.

It was in this context that Amnesty International made the (attached) recorded phone-call to accuse a torture victim, without any proof whatsoever, of doing “something” that they themselves don’t even know exactly what it is, that resulted in their own server resending an e-mail message. Together with this unclear accusation, they had no better idea than to try to intimidate the torture victim with “legal actions” if he didn’t do, in less than 48 hours, what they were compelling him to do. Let me clarify that at no point of the recorded conversation, neither afterwards, anyone of Amnesty International showed the least interest in the xenophobia, human right violations and torture crimes they were informed of. Till this day, they haven’t requested copy of the documents that were offered to them, proving the UN CAT violations committed by Belgium and covered-up by the UN officials. Have in mind that if what I am denouncing is correct, and my documents prove it, literally thousands of torture victims around the world could be affected by the corruption in the UN office supposed to be ensuring that the Convention Against Torture is strictly respected. Shouldn’t Amnesty International be much more concerned about this very serious and outrageous situation, rather than about their e-mail technical problem?

According to what Amnesty International proclaims in its own website (www.amnesty.org): “governments often put more effort into denying or covering up torture than carrying out full investigations when a complaint is made [exactly what I am denouncing the Belgian regime did]”. That’s why Amnesty International believes that: “one of the best ways to prevent torture and make sure torturers can’t get away with it, is to bring it into view”. Clearly Amnesty International believes (and recommends) that the best way to make sure torturers can’t get away with it, is to expose the facts. Following the same logic, Amnesty International must also believe that the best way to make sure torturers CAN get away with it, is to keep the facts out of view (concealing it). Is Amnesty International currently exposing the facts they know or are they collaborating with their silence to keep this situation out of view? Their own principles applied to their own lack of actions show that Amnesty International is knowingly and willingly collaborating in the concealment of torture crimes.

The ten proclaimed principles Amnesty International had to treason to favor impunity

 In order to analyze this, let’s compare what Amnesty International says in their own website they do, with what they really do. Having in mind that I am an asylum seeker; discriminated for nationality reasons; denouncing human right violations; torture and that Belgium has violated the UN Convention Against Torture with the collaboration of the UN, my situation fits at least four different areas of proclaimed interest by Amnesty International. Still, they have never shown any interest whatsoever.

Principle 1: “No government is beyond scrutiny”. Belgium must be the exception to that rule.

Principle 2: “We investigate and expose the facts, whenever and wherever abuses happen”. Not in this case, where they are knowingly avoiding any investigation and concealing the known facts.

Principle 3: “We lobby governments, and other powerful groups such as companies. Making sure they keep their promises and respect international law”. Not in this case, where I have offered them documents that prove the violations of an international agreement and they don’t even want to see the documents.

Principle 4: “Through our detailed research and determined campaigning, we help fight abuses of human rights worldwide”. No detailed research nor any campaign was done in my case.

Principle 5: “We bring torturers to justice”. Not in this case.

Principle 6: “For decades, Amnesty has exposed governments who torture”. Not in this case.

Principle 7: “We also support torture survivors to get justice”. Not in this case.

Principle 8: “Amnesty’s work is rooted in the principle of non-discrimination”. They discriminated me.

Principle 9: “Amnesty has championed the human rights of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants for decades”. Apparently they have stopped championing the human rights of asylum-seekers when I became one.

Principle 10: “We work to make sure governments honour their responsibility to protect their rights [asylum-seekers], condemning any policies and practices that undermine them”. The attached picture (Welcome-refugees.jpg), that I sent to Amnesty International almost two months ago (no reaction at all), shows the cardboard box I slept in for many months while “living” in the streets as a discriminated asylum-seeker under the international “protection”, with no money, no food, no drinking water, no bathroom, no medical assistance, etc..

The big elephant in Amnesty International’s office

In their website, Amnesty International proclaims that: “We investigate and expose the facts, whenever and wherever abuses happen”. So let’s see what are the facts here, that Amnesty International is so reluctant to investigate and expose: that big and smelly elephant they currently have in the middle of their office.

Fact 1: Belgium systematically ignore the allegations of torture, violating articles 12 and 13 of the UN Convention Against Torture. This is not an opinion, this is a documented fact. If Amnesty International DOESN’T WANT to see the documents that prove it, to collaborate thus in the concealment of the violation, that is another story.

Fact 2: The UN authorities have been formally informed through the appropriate channels, with copy of all the documents that prove it, of the Belgian violations, and they have decided to allow Belgium to walk away with it. This is not an opinion, this is a documented fact. If Amnesty International DOESN’T WANT to see the documents that prove it, to collaborate thus in the concealment of the cover-up, that is another story.

Fact 3: The two attached documents prove that Amnesty International acknowledge that they have received the denounce I sent them with all this information, so they are perfectly aware of the situation, but still they have decided to do nothing about it.

Fact 4: As a result of the misconfiguration problem in their system, Amnesty International has unwillingly resent all this information (as you can see in the attached document) to the European Court of Human Rights, to the International Criminal Court and also to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Three international institutions whose MAIN purpose (if not their sole purpose), is to defend human rights and fight against human right violations. All of them have been informed by Amnesty International (again, unwillingly), ofvery serious human right violations. What are this three institutions going to do about it? And if they decide to do nothing and collaborate in the cover-up efforts, would Amnesty International stay in silence seeing how this three very important human right institutions act against human rights?

Let’s wait and see which one of them will bell the cat first. Meanwhile, I ask everyone to follow the recommendation of Amnesty International to prevent torture and make sure torturers can’t get away with it: “bring it into view”.

US Coalition attempts to trash Sochi talks crash and burn

NOVANEWS

…from Press TV, Tehran

The Saudi HNC rump group has failed to derail the political talks

[ Editor’s Note: The UN’s Guterres just pulled the rug out from under the whining claims that the Sochi talks were some kind of a rouge operation to knock the UN talks out of the box.

The claims were a complete hoax, first because Moscow was coordinating Sochi with the UN, publicly stating they were no attempt so replace the UN.

Because the UN talks had been bogged down by the Saudi High Negotiation Committee’s (HNC) efforts to keep the talks going nowhere by constantly demanding pre-conditions which the UN said were improper for anyone participating, Sochi was designed to get around that roadblock.

The opposition’s strategy can clearly be seen as an attempt to stall the political talks to give the US coalition time to crank up some new chaos in Syria to have them die of crib death. But it seems that the Erodgan invasion is one finger of that ploy.

The whole purpose of Sochi was not to solve all the problems, but get the process jump started and quite visibly so. The concluding twelve point statement was a home run in that regard, and the cherry on top was to move the next step in the process back to Geneva where De-Mistura would have the final say on some of the key items.

All this can in no way be claimed as excluding the UN from the process, which is exactly what the hard core opposition did. And the 1600 participants established a large and diverse representation of those wanting to mover forward.

It was also a show of force against the small group of deal killers like the HNC, that the majority would not be held hostage to their demands.

As I have editorialized, the critical focus now for a successful resolution to the Syrian crisis is to maintain momentum with the political process. The US Coalition obviously knows this so it is doing all it can to disrupt it. As Gordon does so love to say, “Welcome to how the world really works” … Jim W. Dean ]

The Sochi talks did what was needed, agree to a platform to move forward with more talks in Geneva. Maintaining momentum is the key to a political solution

– First published … February 03, 2018 –

United Nations (UN) Secretary General Antonio Guterres has rejected criticism of the world body’s participation at Syrian peace talks in the Russian resort city of Sochi, praising the outcome of the discussions.

Speaking at a press conference at the UN headquarters New York on Friday, Guterres said the presence of UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura “in Sochi was based on a common understanding between the United Nations and the Russian Federation on the nature and outcome of the meeting and its contribution to the [UN-mediated] Geneva process.”

“The congress concluded with a statement fully in line with that common understanding,” he added.

Russia, Iran, and Turkey have been organizing peace talks for Syria in the Kazakh capital of Astana since January 2017. Together, the three countries have been acting as guarantor states for the peace process.

Capitalizing on the achievements of Astana, Russia on January 29-30 convened a high-profile meeting on Syria — the Syrian Congress of National Dialog — in Sochi.

One Syrian opposition faction boycotted that meeting, and some non-political groups opposed to Damascus later accused the UN of “rewarding” Russia “upfront” by dispatching Special Envoy de Mistura to the event before securing concessions from Russia and the Syrian government.

Russia and Iran are Syrian government allies. Turkey is an ally of the Syrian opposition. The collective efforts of the three countries, including the brokering of agreements that have significantly reduced fighting in Syria, have made an impact on the ground in the Arab country.

In contrast, a peace process held under the auspices of the UN — that in Geneva — has achieved little. That has angered some Western and Arab governments opposed to the Syrian government and some groups of Syrian opposition backed by those governments. They insist that the Geneva process be given more importance despite its failure so far to make meaningful achievements.

Guterres appreciated Russia’s engagement with the UN regarding the Syria talks. He highlighted the key subjects of the 12-point final Sochi statement, saying that the document embraced a vision of Syria for all its citizens and underlined the need for the formation of a Constitutional Committee under UN auspices.

Around 1,600 delegates representing a wide range of Syrian political factions attended the Sochi talks. The event was boycotted by the High Negotiations Committee, which is based in and guided by Saudi Arabia.

Damascus welcomed the results of the event and stressed that its final statement affirmed that political progress in Syria cannot begin except under the Syrian leadership and without any foreign interference.

The Sochi conference took place just days after the ninth round of UN-led Syria talks failed to achieve tangible results. That round was exceptionally held in the Austrian capital, Vienna, instead of its usual venue of Geneva.

Study: One-Third Of Adults Under 30 Have No Religious Affiliation

By Ben Fearnow
WASHINGTON (CBS WASHINGTON) — One-fifth of American adults have no religious affiliation, and this number is increasing rapidly.

The number of Americans who do not identify with any religion continues to grow at a fast pace. One-fifth of the U.S. public – and a third of adults under 30 – are religiously unaffiliated today, the highest percentages ever in Pew Research Center polling.

In the last five years alone, the unaffiliated have increased from just over 15 percent to just under 20 percent of all U.S. adults. Their ranks now include more than 13 million self-described atheists and agnostics (nearly 6 percent of the U.S. public), as well as nearly 33 million people who say they have no particular religious affiliation (14 percent).

This large and growing group of Americans is less religious than the public at large on many conventional measures, including frequency of attendance at religious services and the degree of importance they attach to religion in their lives.

But the survey may be affected by a differing view of the words “religion” and “spiritual.”

A new survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, conducted jointly with the PBS television program Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, finds that many of the country’s 46 million unaffiliated adults are religious or spiritual in some way.

Two-thirds of them say they believe in God (68 percent). More than half say they often feel a deep connection with nature and the earth (58 percent), while more than a third classify themselves as “spiritual” but not “religious” (37 percent), and one-in-five (21 percent) say they pray every day.

With few exceptions, though, the unaffiliated say they are not looking for a religion that would be right for them. Overwhelmingly, they think that religious organizations are too concerned with money and power, too focused on rules and too involved in politics.

The lower the age group, the less likely people are to be affiliated.

The growth in the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans – sometimes called the rise of the “nones” – is largely driven by generational replacement, the gradual supplanting of older generations by newer ones.

A third of adults under 30 have no religious affiliation (32 percent), compared with just one-in-ten who are 65 and older (9 percent). And young adults today are much more likely to be unaffiliated than previous generations were at a similar stage in their lives.

In addition, this report contains capsule summaries of some leading theories put forward by scholars in an attempt to explain the root causes of the rise of the “nones.” These theories run the gamut from a backlash against the entanglement of religion and politics to a global relationship between economic development and secularization.

ECIPS President Baretzky Assaulted by Known Middle Eastern Man in Antwerp !

NOVANEWS

World News: The President of ECIPS, Ricardo Baretzky a prominent figure in the fight against global terrorism and corruption was recently physically assaulted by a “Middle Eastern Man” during visit to the Diamond Center in Antwerp last Monday. He sustained a neck and arm injury during this assault that were witnessed by many of the shop keepers and bystanders at the time.

President Ricardo Baretzky here seen with Senator Marco Rubio during is visit to speak as subject matter expert (International Cyber Crime and Terrorism) representative before members of The Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Crime Capitol Hill DC.

The attacker, one of the shop owners shouted just before the assault ” Your CYBERPOL and ECIPS is a fraud” and then proceeded to attacked him in plain sight. He was immediately treated at the doctors for injuries. Its unclear what the motives of the attacker was but its clear he is misinformed.

CYBERPOL and ECIPS organizations were both approved by Royal Decree No WL22/16.595 in Belgium during 2015 and has since moved its HQ to UK and USA and in process of setting up home. President Baretzky was one of the co-founders of both organization and the main initiator in the establishment of it. Both organizations are well known and have received much acclaim for their efforts in fighting global corruption and crime.

Just two weeks prior to his visit to the diamond center he generously donated a blue diamond sample in need, one of the world rarest blue diamonds samples, a natural type 1ab to the HRD Europe’s Leading Authority in Diamond Certification in Antwerp. This generous donation by President Baretzky was made to further research and development in the HRD in the Antwerp Diamond Centre.

President Baretzky said: ” The man needs help but the failure of the law needs even greater help 
!”

Despite the multiple witnesses and doctor’s reports the subject is still not apprehended by the authorities. It raises the question if physical assault is legal in Antwerp and if it’s safe for visitors to visit the diamond district of Antwerp ?
