TERRORISTS ESCAPE EAST ALEPPO IN STATE OF ANARCHY; LEADERSHIP COLLAPSES AND WHITE HELMETS TAKE OFF WITH THE RATS! AL-TAL LIBERATED!! ABU MUHAMMAD AL-JAWLAANI TO BE ASSASSINATED

Sharmine Narwani sent a message via my email announcing the departure of the White Helmets from East Aleppo.  They, evidently, evacuated along with all the Islamist terrorist rodents toward Turkey where Erdoghan continues to bloviate about ousting Dr. Assad from the presidency of Syria.  (He did recant during a conversation with President Putin.)  We have heard that Vlad has ordered the Russian Foreign Ministry to inquire about what Erdoghan meant when he said he was determined to overthrow the government.  So far, Turk diplomats are trying to soft-soap the whole affair without much success.  As I have written before, Erdoghan is mentally unstable and he really has to be taken down before he kills thousands of his own people in his quixotic mission to unseat a popular, secular and modernistic leader. . . . continue reading . . .

Trump Team Confirms Dakota Access Support Has “Nothing To Do With Personal Investments” In Pipeline Builder, Zerohedge

‘Winter is coming’ in North Dakota but as over 2000 veterans arrive to provide a human shield for the ‘water protestors’, president-elect Donald Trump said for the first time that he supports completion of the pipeline project near a North Dakota Indian reservation. Reassuringly his team confirmed that his support “has nothing to do with his personal investments” in Energy Transfer Partners – the company building the pipeline. . . continue reading

Power Structure Wages Weather Warfare Against Dakota Pipeline Protesters, by Dane Wigingtongeoengineeringwatch.org

The Dakota pipeline protests have become the frontline representation of the critical struggle against a completely out of control totalitarian power structure. Those in power cannot afford to allow this justifiable protest to continue or succeed. Geoengineering/weather warfare has now been added to the already long list of criminal assaults that have been hurled at the peaceful pipeline protesters. In the coming days and weeks, weather warfare will likely be the most deadly and effective weapon that the power structure will wield against the pieceful Dakota pipeline protesters.

Climate engineering and the use of toxic chemical ice nucleation elements are the reason a record early season snow has just occurred in the exact region of the protests (named winter storm “Blanche”). If you don’t believe snowstorms can be completely engineered, you have not done your research. Weather warfare has long since been a covert weapon of choice for the criminals that truly control our government. Is it just a coincidence that a record early season snowstorm also decimated the Occupy Wall Street protesters?

Will General Flynn roll back post-9/11 intelligence reforms, re-focus on actual intel?

Related: The Dangerous Deception Called The Trump Presidency
By F. William Engdahl
 . . . in which William focuses on Flynn and his background:

In this article I’ll look closely at Mike Flynn, the former 3-star general who will be the all-important Trump National Security Advisor, sitting in the White House. Normally perceptive bloggers and analysts have greeted the Flynn appointment with cheers of joy. They cite his opposition to US covert support for ISIS and Islamic terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra; he is on record that the 2003 Iraq invasion was a “strategic mistake.” Moreover, Flynn is opposed to stirring up war with Russia and instead calls for waging war against ISIS and other radical terrorist organizations. In fact Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency when Flynn opposed the Obama decision to prioritize the anti-Russia war over the anti-Jihad war, and called for cooperation with Syrian President Assad to that end.

Flynn’s position on war against ISIS and presumably also against the Muslim Brotherhood so beloved by Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration, is not one of a man of peace. Rather it is one of a cold, calculating military professional, a military professional who favors working with the Likud of Netanyahu to advance the global agenda of war.

Flynn’s statements on Assad and ISIS and Iraq must be interpreted not in a vacuum but in light of a military intelligence specialist who sees that the decades-long CIA and Pentagon policy of training Muslim Brotherhood and other fanatic Muslim-origin terrorists to wage surrogate wars of empire have backfired badly. Not only the CIA’s July 15 failed coup using networks of Turkey’s Fethullah Gülen, but rather every CIA-backed Jihad war from Secretary of State Clinton’s war against Mubarak, against Gaddafi, against most of the Islamic world to try to impose US-backed Muslim Brotherhood terror regimes loyal to Washington, has failed. The gross effect has been to drive much of the world away from Washington and their constant proxy wars.

An intelligent military strategist would say it’s time for another plan. This is what Flynn is about. He will advance a shift in Washington policy away from using Muslim Brotherhood and allied terror organizations towards more intimate restoration of full cooperation with Israel’s right-wing Netanyahu Likud government.

Walid Phares, Donald Trump’s adviser on terrorism, and Middle Eastern Affairs, told Egyptian media in comments reported by Ben Shapiro’s conservative US blog, The Daily Wire, that Donald Trump will back efforts to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, something the Obama Administration vehemently refused and prevented Congress from doing.

Anyone familiar with my latest book, The Lost Hegemon: Whom the gods would destroy, will know I am in no way a friend of the Muslim Brotherhood who have been in a dark alliance with the CIA since the 1950s. Yet reality is not simplistic as in, “my enemy’s enemy is my friend…” Walid Phares, Donald Trump’s key adviser on terrorism and the Middle East, is also a Senior Fellow of a small very pro-Netanyahu think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. . . .

Russia lays out new Foreign Policy Concept

President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree approving Russia’s new Foreign Policy Concept. The document specifies Moscow’s position on key global issues, highlighting its relations with the US, EU, China and other countries.

Published on Thursday, the concept is now in force, replacing the previous one from 2013. Moscow’s “views on core principles, priority directions, aims and tasks of the Russian foreign policy” are stated in the document of almost 40 pages.

Saying that Russia pursues an independent foreign policy based both on national interests and respect for international law, the concept states that Moscow’s policy is “open, foreseeable” and “shaped by centuries” of Russia’s historic role in the development of global civilization.

Russia is fully aware of its special responsibility for maintaining security in the world both on global and regional levels, and is aimed at cooperative actions with all concerned states in the interest to solve common issues,” the document says.

Moscow calls for “creation of a broad international anti-terrorist coalition, firmly based on a legal framework, and effective and systematic cooperation among states,” the document says. No “double standards” should have a place in such a coalition, which should become the main force to fight global terrorism. . . .

A Reader shares: From today’s Writer’s Almanac, and in light of Standing Rock, maybe we need to go back and listen very clearly and very closely to a 26-year old Martin Luther King:

On this day, December 1st, in 1955, Rosa Parks broke the law by refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, resulting in her arrest. At the time, she said that she was just too tired to stand that day, but she later admitted that she’d challenged the law on purpose, because she thought it was wrong. She recalled, “When that white driver stepped back toward us, when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats, I felt a determination cover my body like a quilt on a winter night.” She refused to give up her seat. “When he saw me still sitting, he asked if I was going to stand up, and I said, ‘No, I’m not.’ And he said, ‘Well, if you don’t stand up, I’m going to have to call the police and have you arrested.’ I said, ‘You may do that.'”

Parks’ arrest was the catalyst that the newly formed Montgomery Improvement Association needed to organize a boycott of the city’s buses on December 5. A 26-year-old pastor named Martin Luther King Jr. emerged as the protest’s leader; on the first night of the boycott he came forward and said, “The great glory of the American democracy is the right to protest for right.”

The boycott of the buses in Montgomery continued for over a year and eventually helped lead to the end of segregation.”

The Children Of the New World Order Have Arrived, by Bernie Suarez, Guest,
Waking Times

. . . This leaves me wondering what’s really behind this passionate almost religious belief that Donald Trump is an especially dangerous “hater”, and what does that really mean? When did “hating” become a criteria that determines who can be president? And who determines if that person is a “hater”? Who has the authority to declare that someone’s opinion can be deemed a thought crime of hate? And how do these beliefs morally justify the behavior and anger these protesters are demonstrating? Aren’t demonstrations based on things that are happening or things that have actually happened? Aren’t presidents and leaders judged by their actions? What hate crime has Trump committed? Isn’t waging illegal war on a nation that didn’t attack the US and causing the death of millions, like Bush, Obama and Hillary have done in the past, examples of “hate”? Why aren’t protesters angry about the CNN fake news and the lies about fake terrorism and war that cost millions of lives? I’m wondering how crazy is all of this and how did it get to this point? I’m also wondering what is really happening here based on what we know about the world and the plans of the never-say-die ruling elite? Let’s examine some of these questions.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF WILHELM REICH’S DISCOVERIES . . .the reader who shared this article and the one above, commented: 

I have followed Reich and his work since my late teens. In some future enlightened world humanity will finally realize his humanity, the genius of his ideas, and what they could do to help humanity.

In the meantime we have the mind control of the FDA (anything natural and life-affirming they are vehemently against; they are trying to wipe out homeopathy right now) and perhaps the Children of the New World Order.

“Reich observed that certain kinds of low-energy illness, such as cancer, would symptomatically yield to careful application of the orgone accumulator. After he moved to the USA, he treated people experimentally with his combined emotional/orgone-energetic approach. Within a few years, however, he was attacked by US Food and Drug Administration, which was at that time (1955) in an all-out “war” against natural healing methods (the repression of natural healing methods has always been a major agenda of the FDA). The FDA obtained a court injunction which ordered the banning and burning of Reich’s books — any book containing the forbidden word “orgone” was ordered destroyed, even his classics on human sexuality which only mentioned orgone energy in the preface! The FDA factually burned Reich’s books and journals on several occasions (most recently in 1962), while Reich was given a 2-year jail sentence for a misdemeanor technicality, dying in prison in 1957. The FDA’s attack against Reich constituted a fraud upon the courts and the American people, and the Reich legal case continues to overshadow the better-known Scopes Monkey Trial in constitutional significance, in that an American court authorized the burning of scholarly books and the jailing of scientists for maintaining unorthodox viewpoints.”

Editors’ Note Appended 11/28/16: The survey mentioned below was taken directly from the Frontiers in Public Health website. The published abstract was recently deleted from their website. Below are the cached images of the survey.

One is left to draw their own conclusions as to the why this study was taken down.

frontiers-in-public-health-300x98According to RetractionWatch.com the abstract — published online in Frontiers in Public Health after being accepted November 21 — reported findings from anonymous online questionnaires completed by 415 mothers of home-schooled children 6-12 years old. Nearly 40 percent of children had not been vaccinated, and those that had were three times more likely to be diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, the study found.

After receiving criticism on Twitter, Frontiers released a public statement, noting that the study was only “provisionally accepted but not published,” and is being re-reviewed. When asked for a comment, a Frontiers spokesperson referred us to the statement.

The following other websites picked up on this story as well: Science Blogs, True Viral News, and VaccinationNews

Global call on banks to halt loan to Dakota Access Pipeline:

Open letter by 420 civil society organisations demands immediate halt to financing the DAPL

420 civil society organisations from more than 50 countries today issued a joint open letter to the seventeen banks providing a US$2.5 billion project loan to Dakota Access LLC. The letter, endorsed by the Standing Rock Sioux, demands that the banks involved immediately halt all further disbursements of the loan and require the project sponsor to stop construction work until all outstanding issues are resolved to the full satisfaction of the Standing Rock Sioux. The letter and the full list of signatories can be found here.

Concerning: Halt your support to the Dakota Access Pipeline

November 30th 2016

Dear Sirs,

The undersigned organizations are writing to you to share our deep concern about your participation in a credit agreement led by Citibank with Dakota Access LLC and Energy Transfer Crude Oil Company LLC, to borrow up to $2.5 billion to construct the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and the Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline in the United States.

As you are aware, the proposed 1,172 mile-long DAPL is the subject of a huge international outcry, led by the Standing Rock Sioux, but supported by the native governments of over 280 other groups of indigenous peoples and allies from all over the world. This growing global resistance opposes DAPL because the pipeline trajectory is cutting through Native American sacred territories and unceded Treaty lands, and because it threatens air and water resources in the region and further downstream.

Since last April, an ever growing number of Native water protectors and their thousands of allies have converged peacefully at Standing Rock in the pipeline construction area to halt further construction of the project. In response to this strictly-peaceful, on-site resistance, police from multiple U.S. states and agencies, members of the U.S. National Guard, and armed private security forces working for project sponsors have used military equipment, tactics and weapons to intimidate, assault, arrest and otherwise commit grievous human rights violations against water protectors and their allies. Indiscriminate use of attack dogs, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, tazers and mace are reported, while journalists covering the assault have been arrested. The violence unleashed on the protesters by security forces has already left hundreds severely injured. Last week, protesters were attacked with water cannons used in sub-zero temperatures, leading to life threatening situations. One protester faces a possible amputation of her arm after being hit with a concussion grenade. Protesters that have been arrested have also been subjected to inhumane treatment that involved, among other things, being locked up naked, or cramped without food and warmth into dog kennels.

As the loan syndicate is led by four banks that are signatory to the Equator Principles, this project loan is subject to these Principles. Given that Indigenous rights commitments are presumed to be respected by the Principles, specifically the right of indigenous communities to withhold consent to projects affecting their ancestral lands (FPIC), it is for us inexplicable that the clear and long standing opposition to the project by the Standing Rock Sioux, as well as widely documented gross violations of Native land titles, threats to water sources and the desecration of burial grounds have not been identified early on as reasons for participating banks to not provide funding for this project. Harm to Native areas has now already occurred when DAPL personnel deliberately desecrated documented burial grounds and other culturally important sites. Native American opponents to the project have emphasized throughout that the DAPL struggle is about larger Native liberation, self-determination and survival at the hands of colonial corporations and compliant government actors.

The undersigned organizations are closely watching how the banks providing financial support to the project are acting on the ever worsening situation on the ground, including your bank.Given your stated commitment to respect indigenous rights and the contrast with the harsh reality on the ground we demand that:

  1. all further loan disbursements to the project are immediately put on hold;
  2. banks involved in the loan demand from the project sponsor that all construction of the pipeline and all associated structures is put on hold until all outstanding issues are resolved to the full satisfaction of the Standing Rock Sioux;
  3. in case such a resolution of outstanding issues is not achieved with the Standing Rock Sioux, your bank fully withdraws from the loan agreement;
  4. a public statement is made by your bank on how you will act on the issues identified above.

We all stand with the Standing Rock Sioux in defending their ancestral lands from the impact of this project and are fully prepared to take further campaign steps in case we consider your response on this call unsatisfactory. Given the urgency of the matter we seek a response from you on this letter as soon as possible, but no later than December 5.

Sincerely,

Johan Frijns, Director

BankTrack, Netherlands

Banks have committed substantial resources to the Energy Transfer family of companies so it can build more oil and gas infrastructure. Energy Transfer Partners has a revolving credit line of USD 3.75 billion toward expanding its oil and gas infrastructure holdings, with commitments from 26 banks. Sunoco Logistics has a credit line of USD 2.5 billion in commitments from 24 banks. Energy Transfer Equity has a credit line with another USD 1.5 billion in commitments from most of the same big international banks. 

November 2, 2016: ING expresses its concern on being involved in funding the Dakota Access Pipeline, according to this statement.

November 3, 2016: the Royal Bank of Scotland vehemently denied having any connection to the Dakota Access Pipeline when speaking to CommonSpace, saying that the relationship is a past one and that issue had been terminated. An RBS spokesperson said: “We’re not funding the Dakota Access Pipeline. RBS has never had a banking relationship with Dakota Access LLC. RBS provided financial support to the parent company of Dakota Access LLC but have since exited the relationship.”

Dakota Access Pipeline United States

By: BankTrack – Last update: Nov 30 2016

Description

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,172-mile-long underground U.S. oil pipeline project for crude oil being planned by Dakota Access, LLC, a company owned by Philips 66 from Houston, Texas; Energy Transfer Partners LP from Dallas, Texas; and Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The pipeline is to begin in the Bakken oil fields in Northwest North Dakota. It will travel in a more or less straight line south-east, across South Dakota and Iowa, to end in south-central Illinois, specifically at Patoka, Illinois. The pipeline would pump about a half-million barrels of oil each day. The oil would be sent to the East Coast refineries and other markets by train, or down another 750 miles to the Gulf Coast through a second pipeline that Energy Transfer Partners is converting to carry oil. The project is expected to cost USD 3.8 billion.

Brief history

The project became public in July 2014, and informational hearings for landowners took place between August 2014 and January 2015. Dakota Access submitted its plan to the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) on October 29, 2014, and applied for a permit in January 2015. The IUB was the last of the four state regulators to grant the permit in March 2016, including the use of eminent domain, after some public controversy. As of May 2016, Dakota Access had secured voluntary easements on 96 percent of the necessary land across four states along the proposed pipeline route.

The pipeline has been controversial regarding violations of Indigenous rights, as the pipeline path crosses Native American sacred sites and threatens drinking water at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. The pipeline is also criticized for its potential harm to the environment, impact on climate change, and for the assumption that it is necessary at all. An unprecedented number of Native Americans in Iowa and the Dakotas have opposed the pipeline, including the Meskwaki and several Sioux nations. In July 2016, the Standing Rock Sioux sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Washington, D.C., arguing that the pipeline threatens their culture and way of life. The resistance camp at the pipeline site in North Dakota has been called the biggest Native American gathering in history, and continues to draw international attention and support.

Native water protectors at the prayer and resistance camp have been brutally confronted by law enforcement and private security forces. Indiscriminate use of attack dogs, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, tasers and mace are reported, while journalists covering the assault on non-violent water protectors have been arrested. Protesters that have been arrested have been subjected to inhumane treatment that involved, amongst other things, being locked up naked, or cramped without food and warmth into dog kennels.

What must happen

After years of pipeline disasters — from the massive tar sands oil spill in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 2010, to the recent oil pipeline spills in the San Joaquin Valley and Ventura CA, this projects poses another threat to safety, health, and the environment. It also underscores the ongoing mistreatment of Native Americans in the United States and the absence of true consultation processes. More than 30 environmental organizations have called to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline as they stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, other indigenous peoples, and landowners in their fight against this massive crude oil pipeline.
