A relatively calm evening gave way to the arrest of 47 protesters early Wednesday morning in Ferguson, Missouri, marking the eleventh night of demonstrations touched off by the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a local police officer.

Attorney General Eric Holder is due to visit the majority-black St. Louis suburb at 11 a.m. local time for an update on the federal civil rights investigation concerning the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, on August 9 by Darren Wilson, one of 50 white Ferguson police officers on a 53-member force. Wilson has been kept in seclusion since it was revealed he was the shooter, while Brown’s family and supporters have pressed for his arrest in the slaying.

In a letter to the Ferguson community published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Holder stressed that the US Department of Justice probe will be fair and independent of the concurrent investigation being conducted by local authorities.

“This is my pledge to the people of Ferguson: Our investigation into this matter will be full, it will be fair and it will be independent,” he wrote. “And beyond the investigation itself, we will work with the police, civil rights leaders and members of the public to ensure that this tragedy can give rise to new understanding — and robust action — aimed at bridging persistent gaps between law enforcement officials and the communities we serve.”

Holder added that he has assigned about 40 FBI agents to the case, as well as prosecutors in the US Attorney’s Office in St. Louis. He said hundreds of people have already been interviewed in the investigation.

An independent autopsy of Brown, the third since his killing, has been conducted by federal medical examiners, Holder said.

Meanwhile, the St. Louis County prosecutor’s office is expected to begin presenting evidence to a grand jury investigating the shooting.

“We are going to attempt to start giving evidence to the grand jury (Wednesday), depending upon the ability to get the witnesses in and the witnesses showing up,” said Ed Magee, spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch. “It will be handled by the attorney regularly assigned to the grand jury. It will not be by Mr. McCulloch.”

‘Like charging bulls, weapons drawn’

Demonstrations in Ferguson were, overall, more subdued and less in number on Tuesday evening compared to previous nights, according to reports. Many citizens and protesters left the streets by sunset, as requested by local officials.

But Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who assumed leadership of law enforcement in Ferguson last Thursday after criticism of local authorities’ handling of the protests, said “criminals and agitators” had threatened police, throwing glass and plastic bottles, some filled with urine, from behind members of media present to witness the demonstrations.

As tensions increased, many community activists and clergy rushed to stand between the long line of police and the gathered demonstrators, forming a human chain to separate the two sides.

Nevertheless, agitated by those few protesters, the heavily-armed police force charged into the crowd to make arrests, according to reports.

“In all my life I have never been so terrified,” said activist Davey D in describing what he experienced after the water bottle was thrown at police.

“I saw them raising their batons and getting in formation,” he wrote. “[W]e saw a water bottle, plastic water bottle being thrown, people kind of looked up, turned back to what they were doing talking etc.…and the next thing police came at us like charging bulls, weapons drawn, screaming, causing mass confusion ‘leave the area now!’ ‘Don’t move!’”

He said he and others with him tried to flee.

“As we were running the police came from all directions and locked us down. The threats, their eyes, postures, weaponry says it all, we have the power, we don’t care how many cameras there are we will never have to be held accountable. This is one of account of a small group of us. If young people of color did not know where they stood, they surely know now and they told us as much.”

Davey D called the scene at Ferguson “a war zone, a military occupation and our children are the cannon fodder.”

In all, 47 people were arrested and three loaded handguns were confiscated by police from Tuesday night into early Wednesday.

“Protest crowds were a bit smaller, and they were out earlier,” Johnson said a news conference held at about 2:15 a.m. local time Wednesday morning, praising local leaders for the relative calm.

Johnson added that no protesters had thrown Molotov cocktails or fired bullets at police. No tear gas or smoke bombs were fired by police, though some demonstrators were sprayed with mace at the end of the night.

About 10 observers from the human rights group Amnesty International were present at the demonstrations, the Post-Dispatch reported.

Prior to the 47 arrests following Tuesday night’s protests, the St. Louis County police department had reported that about 120 people had been arrested so far in association with the Ferguson demonstrations. Yet there has been some controversy as to the County police’s claims, as records analyzed by NBC News found that there were at least 78 arrests – mostly Missourians – on Monday night; the county had claimed during the night that 31 arrests had been made.

Kyle Niere, of Ferguson, was arrested Monday for refusal to disperse. He told NBC News that he was pulled from his truck by officers as he was trying to drive away from the protests.

“They drug us all out,” said Niere, 23, of he and 11 others arrested on the spot. “Face-first on the ground, stepping on the back of our heads. They’re being brutal for no reason. None of us were violent. We were just there.”

The racially-charged turmoil unfolding in Ferguson has raised myriad questions of police brutality – especially against minority communities – and law enforcement’s heavy-handed, militarized response once tensions over Brown’s killing turned into protests near the site of his death.

On Tuesday, the United Nations’ top human rights official, Navi Pillay, criticized police for its aggressive suppression of protests.

“I condemn the excessive force by the police and call for the right of protest to be respected,” Pillay, a native South African, said in Geneva, according to Reuters.

Ferguson’s population of around 21,000 is two-thirds black, though its political leadership and public education administration, in addition to its police force, are predominantly white.

A funeral service for Brown is now scheduled for Monday. An independent autopsy arranged by his family found that he was shot six times, twice in the head.

Officer Wilson has not made a public statement on the killing. Investigators said he has been cooperative with the investigation thus far.

Breaking: autism, MMR vaccine, CDC coverup By Jon Rappoport August 20, 2014

www.nomorefakenews.com

Sources: Age of Autism, Focus Autism Foundation–-

Age of Autism 8/18 article: “Senior government scientist breaks 13 years’ silence on CDC’s vaccine-autism fraud.”

CDC research scientist comes forward, anonymously, comes clean, tells Dr. Brian Hooker that the CDC has known about the MMR vaccine connection to autism for at least 11 years.

Has known, and has intentionally covered it up.

The CDC and the US government have gone to extreme lengths to assert there is no vaccine-autism connection.

This CDC scientist has spoken with Brian Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, many times.

Hooker states he has seen raw CDC data not included in any study. And the data show that:

African-American boys who receive their first MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine before the age of 36 months have a 300% increased risk for autism.

If this is true, what else is the CDC hiding?

From the Age of Autism article (8/18): “Dr. Hooker has worked closely with the CDC whistleblower, and he viewed highly sensitive documents related to the [fraudulent government] study via Congressional request from U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The CDC documents from Congress and discussions that Hooker had with the whistleblower reveal widespread manipulation of scientific data and top-down pressure on CDC scientists to support fraudulent application of government policies on vaccine safety.”

If all this is true, then the CDC has stood by for the last decade and done nothing, while the MMR vaccine has damaged the brains of many, many children.

You may recall that Dr. Andrew Wakefield pointed out a likely connection between the MMR vaccine and autism. British authorities and the CDC destroyed his career.

Wakefield now states: “Over a decade ago, Dr. Scott Montgomery and I put forward a hypothesis for MMR vaccine and autism: the age you receive the vaccine influences the risk. …We shared this hypothesis with vaccine officials, members of the Centers for Disease Control, at meetings in Washington, D.C. and Cold Spring Harbor.  A group of senior vaccine safety people at the CDC studied it.  It panned out.  We were right–at least partly. By Nov 9, 2001, nearly thirteen years ago, senior CDC scientists knew that the younger age exposure to MMR was associated with an increased risk of autism.  In 2004 they published, but they hid the results. …”

There is another angle on all this. It has to do with how diseases and disorders are labeled and defined.

There is no definitive test for autism. The criteria for diagnosis are a menu of behaviors. Therefore, we are looking at a wide net which includes all sorts of brain and neurological damage.

Official studies are done which “show” that some cases of what’s called autism are not preceded by vaccination—and therefore, vaccines couldn’t be “the single cause of the single disease called autism.”

That proof, of course, is completely false—because what’s called autism isn’t a single disease. It’s neurological damage, which can have a number of causes.

And now we are looking at one of those causes: the MMR vaccine.

If in the coming days, the CDC claims they’ve already eliminated the possibility that vaccines are the cause of autism, you’ll understand their shell game, their con, their ruse.

They’ve stacked the deck, so they can roll out so-called cases of autism which have no connection to the MMR vaccine.

It’s hoax by labels and semantics.

While vaccines continue to damage the brains of children.

RT: EU farmers complain €125mn compensation is just drop in the ocean

Published time: August 20, 2014 14:46

The €125 million in emergency EU support to its food producers may not be enough to cover the damage, as some estimates have it more than a hundred times higher.

On Monday, the European Commission announced €125 million in emergency funding for European farmers hit by the Russian trade ban

Economists at ING estimate the embargo could cost the European Union €6.7 billion ($9 billion) during a year of lost production. The report also sees 130,000 jobs at risk in the trade row between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

The European statistics office, Eurostat, said the ban – which bars meat, dairy, cheese, fruit and vegetables from all 28 EU member states, affects €12 billion ($16 billion) worth of EU exports, or 10 percent of the total.

Hit hardest will be Poland and Norway, both of which export over $1 billion in sanctioned foods to Russia, followed by the Netherlands and Spain, both which have strong trade ties with Russia.

Spain already estimates it will miss out on €337 million in food and agriculture sales due to blocked access to the Russian market. The value of sanctioned food exports to Russia is $792 million, according to Russian Federal Customs data.

In Zaragoza, Spain, fruit growers took to the streets dumping out excess produce and torched an EU flag.

“This price compensation is not enough. Let’s say 20 jobs in our company will be lost. Our salaries will also be affected- then, we will just disappear,” a Spanish fruit farmer told RT.

Exporters may have to further slash prices, which have already fallen 80 percent in the fruit industry, or even throw away perfectly fresh produce that can’t be sent to Russia.

In Greece, farmers feel sanctions are putting their livelihood at stake- being shut out of the Russian market is bad for business. Producers estimate losses over fruit alone will exceed €178 million in the next 12 months.

“Right now we have no other market to send out produce to, other than the Russian one,” Fotis Kyriazis, President of the Irmini Agricultural Cooperative, told RT.

“I don’t think anyone will compensate us for our losses. Neither Greece nor the EU has the money to compensate us,”Kyriazis said.

The worst-hit countries have already tried to bypass the restrictions by sending goods via Belarus, but were stopped by Russia’s consumer watchdog.

Poland, which before the ban exported 50 percent of its apples to Russia, is feeling the sanctions biting back and is hoping to launch a complaint with the European Commission and World Trade Organization.

“The ban has caused horror among Polish producers of fruits and vegetables. We have to tighten our belts and get production costs back at the very least,” Jacek Izyucki, Trade Branch President of the Agrostar Company in Poland, told RT.

“Obviously some unintelligent political decisions were made and brought harm for all,” Izyucki said.

RT: ISIS beheading: Militants ‘represent a direct threat’ to UK security says Foreign Sec.

FYI: Peter Eyre Skyped me the following message last night:

“I believe the so-called beheading of James Foley is yet another false flag…..it obviously was not carried out in the open air as portrayed and the recorded voices of the two guys clearly is studio crystal clear………..this is not genuine and used to arouse some intervention by the US…….ISIS is operated, funded and armed by the US and Saudi and other intel agencies.”

Islamic State militants, who released a video allegedly showing the beheading of a US journalist, ‘represent a direct threat’ to UK security said Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. David Cameron has cut short his holiday to respond to the incident.

American photojournalist James Wright Foley went missing almost two years ago while covering the conflict in Syria as a freelance photographer. The militants proclaimed the violent act as “a message to America” for its decision to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Iraq.

In the grisly film, Foley appears kneeling beside a masked man who speaks with a British accent. Foley read a letter which blames the US government for “hammering the final nail into his coffin” before his beheading with a short blade.

A linguistics expert, Dr Claire Hardaker, who has studied the audio from the short film, told LBC Radio listeners she believes the killer is from London.

The Islamist group also threatened to kill another American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff of World Affairs and Time, stating his life“depends on Obama’s next decision.” Sotloff has been missing since mid-2013, and his Twitter account indicates his last known location was Libya.

and yet another . . .

Hammond said intelligence agencies were trying to unmask the fluent English-speaking militant. Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command, SO15, also launched an investigation into the video.

“We would like to remind the public that viewing, downloading or disseminating extremist material within the UK may constitute an offence under Terrorism legislation,” the specialist operations unit said in a statement.

Leading figures in the counter-terrorism field said it would be possible for intelligence services to identify the militant, despite it being filmed in an unknown location with the fighter dressed head to toe in black.

Many of the British fighters in Syria and Iraq had left criminal pasts in the UK so were likely to be known to police. Intelligence agencies would also be using linguistics technology to track down the man.

Meanwhile, leading terrorism experts warned that the video was a highly orchestrated recruitment tool to lure“psychopathic individuals” to fight alongside Isis militants in Syria andIraq.

Hammond said further analysis of the footage was needed, but said he believes it is genuine. “We’re absolutely aware that there are significant numbers of British nationals involved in terrible crimes, probably in the commission of atrocities, making jihad with Isil [now known as IS] and other extremist organizations,” he said.

“We haven’t absolutely verified the video yet, but all the hallmarks point to it being genuine – an appalling example of the brutality of this organisation.”

“This is a poison, a cancer, what’s going on in Iraq and Syria, and it risks spreading to other parts of the international community and affecting us all directly.”

“We have policies aimed at deterring people at risk of radicalisation from being radicalised and going out to Iraq and Syria,” Hammond added.

It is estimated that the Islamic State, which has seized large parts of northern Iraq and Syria, has up to 400 recruits from the UK in its ranks. Some 69 people suspected of Syria-related jihadist activities have now been arrested in the UK.

Hammond said the involvement of British nationals with extremist groups was one of the reasons that the IS “represents such a direct threat” to the UK’s security. “Many of these people may seek at some point to return to the UK and they would then pose a direct threat to our domestic security.”

Hammond provoked confusion among some listeners when he used the term ‘moderate jihadist’ while speaking on BBC Radio 4. The term suggests there are various extremes of violent radical Islam, rather than condemning all jihadists equally.

“The emergence of ISIL [IS] as a successor organization to AQ [Al-Qaeda] with an absolutely poisonous ideology, hoovering up moderate jihadist, if you can have such a thing as moderate jihadist, activity in Syria, drawing support from the more moderate Syrian opposition is a major challenge primarily to region but also to West,” said Hammond.

“Partly because they are trying to establish a caliphate from which they would launch attacks against the West, and partly because they have amongst their number significant elements of Western fighters.”

Meanwhile, returning from holiday, David Cameron said on Twitter: “If true, the murder of James Foley is shocking and depraved. I will today chair meetings on the situation in Iraq/Syria.”

In a statement, Number 10 said: “The prime minister is returning to Downing St. this morning. He will meet with the foreign secretary and senior officials from the Home Office, Foreign Office and the agencies to discuss the situation in Iraq and Syria and the threat posed by Isil [now known as IS] terrorists.”

Over the weekend, the PM wrote in The Sunday Times that if the UK didn’t act to stem the onslaught of the “exceptionally dangerous terrorist movement,” it could grow strong enough to target Britain. “We already know that it has the murderous intent,” he said.

The UK’s involvement in the crisis has been limited so far to delivering air drops of aid to stranded refugees and surveillance flights of Tornado jets and Rivet Joint SIGINT aircraft over battle zones. London is reportedly mulling joining the US and France in delivering arms directly to the Kurds.

Cameron said a “humanitarian response is not enough” and a “firm security response” was needed to ensure “a long-term plan for our security.”

PressTV: US police shoot dead another African-American man in St. Louis area

 

Tue Aug 19, 2014 9:1PM GMT

The US police have shot dead an African-American man in the Saint Louis area of Ferguson, Missouri.

The man was shot on Tuesday about three miles from the suburb of Ferguson, where unarmed African-American Michael Brown was gunned down 10 days ago.

Ferguson has been the scene of violent clashes between police and protesters since the fatal police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9. He was shot multiple times and killed by a white policeman.

Ferguson police officers claimed on Tuesday that they found an agitated man, armed with a knife, and they fired their in fear for their safety.

On Monday, US President Barack Obama endorsed the use of the National Guard to suppress protests in the Saint Louis suburb of Ferguson.

Obama called on protesters to remain calm, noting that a small minority was using the death of Michael Brown to engage in violence.

He said giving in to anger through looting and attacks on police only stirs tension and leads to more chaos.

The US president went on to say that in order to overcome the mistrust endemic between many communities and their local police, US citizens need to “listen, and not just shout”.

On Thursday, Amnesty International, a London-based non-governmental organization that focuses on human rights, took the “unprecedented” step of sending a team to the US to observe the escalating unrest in Ferguson.

Amnesty USA’s executive director Steven W. Hawkins issued a scathing statement on Saturday soon after the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and put a curfew in place in the St. Louis suburb.

“We criticize dictators for quelling dissent and silencing protestors with tactics like curfews, we’ll certainly speak out when it’s happening in our own backyard,” he said. “The people of Ferguson have the right to protest peacefully the lack of accountability for Michael Brown’s shooting.”
