Disclosure and the Secret History of Our Solar System– Radio Show [Major Updates!]

Remember, because David Wilcock is still allied with Neil Keenan that his Insider Sources can be considered his CIA ‘handlers”; that is, they feed him info they want out there. All I ask is that you use your discernment when reading this. ~J

Is the world going crazy or is it all part of a perfect plan? When it’s David talking with George Noory, you already know where it’s going. We will discuss the five million-year secret history of our solar system, the space program, Ascension and David’s epic new TV show, Disclosure, launching this week!

MAJOR UPDATES Next Morning, including links to recent “meteor” sightings that might be something more. The show happened last night and was a huge success!


The interesting accounts I am about to share with you are the result of many ongoing, multi-hour briefings from very highly-positioned insiders.

These are people who work for various “government” (military-industrial complex) groups in what they would call the “Space Program.”

These people have repeatedly proven their bonafides through a variety of means.

We have been compiling and cataloging their data, and scientificaly verifying it whenever possible, since this website launched in 1999.

Our circle of trusted contacts keeps growing. There are many contenders who spout disinformation, but there are genuine sources as well.

We have had two major new sources come to the forefront in the last four months, creating a dramatic expansion in the knowledge base.

Hundreds of specific data points have been cross-verified — information that had never been published on this website or anywhere else, but that other vetted-out insiders revealed independently, over the last 20 years.

The truth is far, far stranger than fiction. For safety, we have held much of this back until the new data can be absorbed, cataloged and integrated.


Right now there is a war going on in space, directly over our heads. It really heated up in mid-December of last year and is ongoing.

That war is reaching a decisive tipping-point. It appears that it will turn out very favorably for the vast majority of everyone on earth.

In fact, it appears that it is already impossible for the Cabal to win this. Time still has to play out before it is visible to everyone, but the end is almost certain.

Many of the power elite groups on this planet are in a state of complete chaos and turmoil as a result.

Events unfolding on earth could be seen as a “proxy war” between groups of “good guys” or angels and “bad guys” operating in, with and around Earth.

“Good” and “Bad” is obviously a question of your perspective. From the elite Cabal perspective, what is happening to them is very bad.

However, the people who are fighting against the Cabal do very much seem to have humanity’s best interests in mind.

This alliance is a combination of earth governments, earth-based factions of the space program, and newly-arrived ETs who mean business.


It appears that major events are about to unfold on earth, involving the exposure and defeat of the Cabal.

This appears to be coming in the form of vastly greater disclosures from the Snowden documents than what we have seen so far, among many other things.

The “good guy” ETs have now enforced a no-fly zone around the earth. Any high-level Cabal people who try to fly out are being shot down.

Their ships are cloaked, but when one of them gets shot down, we hear about epic meteor sightings — and then the cleanup crews rush in.

There have been a number of very high-profile and unusual “meteors” lately — including daylight-bright flashes of light, sonic booms and the ground shaking for up to 15 seconds upon impact.

State of the Nation: 5 1/2 month-old infant dies after 8 vaccines IN ONE DAY—> ‘SIDS’ Put On Death Certificate . . . educational information has been added! Please share widely!

Later today, I will have more important  posts on this topic. The only way we are going to stop this push for mandatory vaccines is from the grassroots level, so I ask everyone to help spread the word. ~J

Then the hospital refuses to issue an autopsy report!

SOTN Editor’s Note:
Only by reading the article below will most people comprehend the enormity of the crimes being committed by hospitals and physicians everywhere across the USA.  Yes, current childhood vaccination schedules constitute nothing short of medical assault and are therefore criminal.  What do we mean by “medical assault”?


That a 5 & 1/2 month old baby would be given 8 vaccines in one day — killing him — is nothing short of medical homicide.  And yet they (hospital, physicians, nurses, etc.) conveniently identify the cause of death as SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome).

For the uninitiated, SIDS is actually code in medical parlance for the fatal reaction that newborns and babies who sleep in cribs have to their vaccines. More accurately, it is the extraordinarily aggressive vaccination schedules that are the primary cause of SIDS.  For example, 8 vaccines in one day for a five and a half month-old baby is aggressive … and in the case below, deadly … and, therefore, criminal.

What is quite shocking is that parents still trust hospitals and doctors to administer such a dangerous and sometimes lethal vaccine delivery system.  Given the ever-increasing incidence of Autism and Aspergers, Allergies and Auto-immune disorders, ADD and ADHD, one would think the parents would wise up.

It has never been more important for the adult population of America to protect newborns and babies from this odious practice of super-vaccination.  If the parents, guardians and other caregivers don’t advocate — FIERCELY — on behalf of powerless infants, who is to do it?

The referenced article begins here.  . . . and don’t miss the conclusion! ~J

California Infant Dies after 8 Vaccines, Family Gets Him Back from Hospital Cremated


Augustina Ursino

Parents in California are distraught after losing their infant son after being vaccinated. He died in his sleep and was taken to the hospital already deceased. Hospital staff ruled his death as sudden infant death syndrome. The couple was told an autopsy was required to be performed on their son.

After returning home, waiting to get an update, they never received one. Numerous phone calls were made to get answers. Weeks went by. Finally, they received verbal confirmation and told their son was best not to be seen prior to being cremated, because of the condition he was in. Once cremated, they could pick up the remains of their child from the crematory. They were not given the chance to say their goodbyes.

More than one year and four months have passed and the family has yet to receive his autopsy report. It turns out their son was given a vaccine not approved for his age and an extra dose of the hepatitis B vaccine that he shouldn’t have received until later on.

This harrowing story is a reminder that vaccines can be lethal. Parents shall maintain the rights to choose what medical interventions they feel are safe for their child. After all, they are the ones who have to live with the consequences.

Crystal Downing shares with us what happened to her son Matthew, in hopes to remind parents to research vaccines before offering their child to be injected with whatever the doctor says.

One Less Baby Boy

“Our sweet little fussy bear Matthew Gage Downing-Powers was born healthy on April 26, 2013. In the hospital, he was given the Hepatitis B vaccine after birth. That’s what they do here in the United States and what the CDC recommends newborns receive, following the current schedule. His reactions to the shot were deemed normal and I have older children that have been fully vaccinated, so I was aware of what to expect.

I took Matthew in for his 2 month well baby checkup on July 2, 2013. During this appointment, he was given 8 vaccines for DTaP (3 in 1), Polio, Hib, Hep B, Pneumococcal PCV and the oral Rotavirus vaccine. Then I was late getting him to his 4 month checkup. I brought him as soon as I was able.

On Monday October 7, 2013, when Matthew was 5 ½ month’s old, I brought him in for his 4 month delayed visit. The doctor said they could get him caught up on his shots. I thought ok, you can do that. Matthew received 8 vaccines, DTaP, Polio, Hib, Pneumococcal, Hep B and Hep A. These would be the last vaccines he would ever receive.

After the shots, he didn’t have a fever or a low grade one. We didn’t give him Tylenol. He was just grumpy and crying some. We checked him every hour. His temperature stayed normal but he wasn’t his happy go lucky self. All my kids got grumpy after their shots.

I didn’t call the doctor on Tuesday. I knew these were typical behaviors after the kids received the vaccines. He is my 4th son. We had our other 3 vaccinated and knew what to expect.

I thought I would give it another day to see if he was still grumpy but we didn’t get to the next day. Matthew was gone by then. He was found lifeless. He went to bed that Tuesday night and my husband found him Wednesday morning.

My husband Zack and I both performed CPR on our son and so did my dad and step mom. He had some light pinkish-brown tinged mucous coming from his nose and mouth. I wasn’t willing to believe he was gone. None of us were willing to give up on him.

My husband called 911 but they were taking so long. I ran my baby to the hospital that was a 2 blocks away. I took him to Needles hospital which is called Colorado River Medical Center in Needles, CA. The hospital also did CPR on him and said he died of SIDS, soon after I brought him in. He had been gone for hours they said. They told me he passed sometime between 11 PM (after he was put to bed) and 7 AM Wednesday morning (shortly before he was found).

My life has been full of heartache since we lost our baby. That was the worst day of my life, seeing my son that way but still believing he would come back to me.

Hospital staff said I would be under investigation and it was California law when a baby passes, to undergo an autopsy. From the hospital in Needles, Matthew was transferred from that hospital to the coroner’s office, in San Bernardino, CA. We had chosen to have Matthew cremated at a funeral home in San Bernardino.

After leaving Matthew at the hospital, we were told to go home and wait for an update when the autopsy would be done. We planned to see him at the funeral home we picked out, after deciding we would have him cremated. I was told I’d be informed when the autopsy was to be done and when it would be completed and that I could view him before being cremated.

I didn’t write down the names of the staff members I left my son with. I didn’t think of that when it happened. But I should have. No one called me to inform me what was going on. I called numerous times and kept getting the runaround. Absolutely no one would give me answers.

Weeks went by before I received a call back. By this time, I was informed Matthew was not in a condition I’d want to remember him in. I felt helpless and convinced I shouldsign a paper letting them cremate him. Prior to this, the funeral home confirmed the remains were Matthew’s. They asked me what urn I would like and then confirmed it was him. I also sent a picture of him, to make sure.

Matthew didn’t get brought back to our home in Needles, California until November 20, 2013. A month and a half after he passed away.

I don’t think they cremated him before telling me but part of me feels they did, to cover up his death. I will never know but my instincts tell me something was being hidden. I think the funeral home did a nice job, they were very patient with me, they understood why I kept calling them so many times, to see if somebody there could tell me what happened to my son’s body.

I didn’t know where my sons body was. I didn’t know what was going on at the coroner’s office. I was never notified whatsoever and to be honest, I was really flipping out. I wanted to know what was going on with my baby and what answers did they have for me so far.

The coroner was informed of the vaccines Matthew had just received. I had even asked the coroner if it was possible the vaccines killed my son. The coroner straight lied to my face, or more, over the phone, saying that no, it was not the vaccinations that killed him.

There was only one time they contacted me and that was over how many people had done CPR on him. And that was the last time I heard from them.

I did contact him after we had received his death certificate saying pending investigation still and I asked if they had finished with his autopsy report. They told me no. I called once more and they told me that they couldn’t give me anymore information and that I would have to call the coroner’s office here in Needles, California. I have done that and still no answer, no nothing.

The coroner said it wasn’t my fault and sometimes this just happens. I couldn’t believe what I was just told.

It took me a long time to speak up and share my story because of this pain. I decided to come forward because I don’t want Matthew to die in vain because of vaccine manufacturers not doing a better job making safer vaccines, before pushing them onto unsuspecting parents and their innocent babies they view as profitable beings.

Why are infants getting so many at one time? Has it been proven it’s safe to give these kids all the vaccines they are shooting them up with during these well baby checkups? From what I’ve learned since all of this, the answer is no.

Later, I learned two of the vaccines given at his last appointment, should not have been given to him. Babies are not supposed to be given the Hepatitis A vaccine until at least 1 year of age and this was given to Matthew at 5 1/2 months old.

I also learned he was given the third dose of Hepatitis B too soon. Matthew wasn’t supposed to get that until his next visit during the 6 month checkup which would’ve also been delayed to space out the shots, because we were late getting him the 4 month vaccines.

I think it was right after the funeral I learned that they had given him the Hep A vaccine too soon. When I had learned this, it killed me. I started blaming my self and still do because I never took the time to know what vaccines were supposed be given to a child, at what month, how many doses, etc.

I felt because I didn’t do the research until after Matthew died, I was foolish and this was somehow my fault. I felt in some way this was my fault because I was late on his vaccinations. My thoughts were if I would’ve followed the CDC’s schedule and not been late to that 4 month check up, he probably would not have gotten the wrong vaccines. Now he’s gone.

I do understand he could’ve been taken sooner even if the correct vaccines were given on the schedule. It’s just something I live with.

It’s been over a year and four months since Matthew passed on October 9, 2013 and I still haven’t gotten the autopsy report that I told them I wanted a copy of. I keep getting the run around!

I went the doctor’s office recently and found out the nurse that injected Matthew is no longer working there. I was told she got fired because she didn’t know what she was doing when giving vaccines.

I said to the office if it turns out his death was because of her ignorance, I will be going after them all. My son shouldn’t have died because you guys were too lazy to train her to give vaccines properly. They didn’t even apologize to me. I’m just beyond angry at this point. I can’t wait to get my answers.

They said my baby is the only one who had passed away since she started working, until the end of her working. Who knows if that is true? There could’ve been more lives taken and they wouldn’t admit it.

I want to tell other parents, they say vaccinations are safe, but in reality, they aren’t.

Ask questions and know which vaccines they plan to give to your baby. Know the risks associated with all of the vaccines they plan to give during the checkup. And remember, it’s your choice. It’s your child. And whatever you do, don’t let them mix the vaccines into one needle or give them so many at once because if you don’t think this won’t harm your child, then look at the child I lost. It is possible.

Matthew was given DTaP, IPV, Hib, PCV, Hep B and Hep A in 3 shots, one in his right arm and two in his left leg.

Now I’m pregnant with my 5th child. I have to stay strong. I have too. I have to remain less stressed for my family and during my pregnancy. I have 3 boys, a hubby and soon my rainbow baby, all counting on me, to hold this family together.

In all honesty though, sometimes I feel so overwhelmed because I miss Matthew so much and people are so unaware how often vaccines take the lives of infants. I’m beyond angry that this has happened to my baby. And scared it can happen again with the kids I do have. And that I’ll be forced to vaccinate this unborn baby.

A bill was currently put forth by our California state politicians to take away my right to exempt my children from further vaccines due to personal beliefs. If this passes, this would take my parental right away, to choose vaccinating my children in the future. What they should do is create a new exemption for parents to file that took one for the team! We should be able to opt out for that reason alone.

Was it not enough Matthew was taken? He should be honored by these people but instead, they deny his existence by pushing bills that slap parents in the face that have lost their child to vaccines or to those parents with vaccine injured children. Maybe if they would make safer vaccines, more would want to get them.

My son was injected with 8 vaccines, if you don’t know what is in them, learn! When I did, I was shocked and mad at myself for not questioning this before. Matthew is the reason I opened my eyes, to see what vaccines can really do to a baby, let alone anyone. I’m not the only one who believes vaccines are not what they claim they are. I really hope this opens parent’s eyes who do vaccinate their children.

My older son is having a hard time, my second son said he is afraid of the shots now and my third son is 3 years old, he just knows his baby brother is gone. As for my hubby, he keeps it in, so it’s kind of hard to know what he is feeling.

To this day, I still haven’t received his autopsy report. They keep giving me the run around. So the investigation is still pending. I have filed a report with the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). I’ve learned they sometimes don’t follow up with parents, which prevents them from reporting a reaction. Until I receive an autopsy report, it makes it difficult to file a claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). I feel they are stalling us because the time frame to file when you lose a child to vaccines is 2 years, it’s going on a 1 ½ years for us. We won’t give up. My son should still be here.

His shot records don’t lie! They shouldn’t cover up these reactions to vaccines these kids suffer from. They should not stifle parents from pursuing the already time consuming and deterring recourse they’ve set up, talking about the vaccine injury compensation program.

Since I looked into this more, I’ve learned how common it is for babies to die right after getting vaccinated. I just want it to be known that this can happen and I hope mothers ask questions first, before handing their child over to get shot up. How many of us moms helped hold our own child down, to keep them restrained while being vaccinated, knowing we helped them hurt our own?

Matthew’s death was a high price to pay in the name of preventing any of these diseases my kid would’ve been fine dealing with.

I didn’t believe a few people who told me this can happen, but it did. And now I have to live with that for the rest of my life, knowing I should have asked questions and researched first, before blindly agreeing to them injecting or giving him anything. I didn’t research. I didn’t question what vaccines were given to all of my children. I had no reason to distrust doctors, until now. Since this happened to Matthew, my eyes are wide open now. Now I’m not afraid to question everything that is done to my children.

It’s a parent’s decision to make, to vaccinate their child or not. Parents need to research both sides, for and against. Then make their decision on the matter. My dad told me I didn’t get sick till after I started school and had to have those required vaccines. After that, my dad never vaccinated me again. My dad said it a few times before all of this happened, but I didn’t pay attention. I wish I had listened to him.

I just let the doctors and nurses do what they said was needed. No questions asked. I thought they would tell me if there were severe risks involved. Nobody told me anything like that. I trusted them with my child’s life and would’ve liked to have known that death from vaccination is an associated risk. Why didn’t the doctors or nurse tell me this? I really wished I researched and asked questions instead of just trusting the system and doctors. And now because I didn’t, my child is gone.

There are a lot more parents out there like me. Some don’t come forward due to fact they are afraid of what people would say. Sometimes people can be really cruel and not understand what parents like me go through.

I just want his story to be told. My hubby and I say thank you to everyone lending their support. We are so blessed to have the short time we had with our little fussy bear. I hope sharing this will help mothers know it can happen.

I want it well known I’m not telling parents not to vaccinate their child. I’m simply saying to research before you vaccinate. Learn if you choose to vaccinate, then that is your choice, not someone else’s to make because you will be stuck with the consequences.

Don’t disrespect parents like me, who have lost their child to vaccines. And don’t disrespect parents of living vaccine injured children. Our rights to choose these medical interventions need to be preserved. It is beyond disturbing that bought politicians think they can choose what gets injected into our children. They don’t care about your child’s health. Clearly many are dying and getting injured from these vaccines and they turn a blind eye. That should tell you something.

I miss my baby so much. A huge part of me was taken when he was. I cannot let this happen again. I cannot put my other children at risk of being vaccine injured any longer.

Matthew took one for the team and his life didn’t matter to those wanting to strip my rights to opt out of further vaccinating. Why does he not matter? Why do mild cases involving the measles get reported all over the news, but not babies dying after getting the MMR shot or other vaccinations? Why don’t the vaccine injured children matter?

We miss and love you so much Matthew. You are always thought of every day. You are always in my heart and I will never stop loving you.

Love Your Momma,
Crystal Downing-Powers”


Matthew Gage Downing-Powers

April 26, 2013 – October 9, 2013

Passed away at 5 ½ months old, less than 2 days after receiving 8 vaccines


As long as vaccine manufacturers avoid doing causation studies, as long as this data doesn’t exist, health officials and published vaccine-promoting, peer-reviewed literature can state there is no proof vaccines cause SIDS or other vaccine injuries.

How can a medical examiner be sure of which vaccine caused a person’s health to decline when multiple vaccines are given at a time? Overstimulating the immune system via vaccination can lead to a fatal outcome. Since it is proven difficult to narrow down which vaccine contributed to a child’s death after vaccination, giving numerous or combination vaccines should be a concern.

Bamboo-Water Updates Progress on Neither Wolf Nor Dog: The Film of Neither Wolf nor Dog is shaking the tin cup

Bamboo-Water says: 

I don’t know if you have seen this.  I know that in these times, the last thing people like to hear about is requests for money.  But for all those who love Neither Wolf Nor Dog, The Wolf at Twilight, The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo, and all the rest of Kent Nerburn’s works, perhaps they can still find $5 here or maybe $10 there to help this, what I believe, will be an excellent movie—get over the final hump.

Maybe seeing the latest trailer will encourage a few people.

Here’s what Kickstarter has to say now on this; they have 23 days to raise the $30,000 or all bets are off.

They presently have $12,875 raised.

People can see the latest trailer at this location on Kickstarter:

Here are notes from the Kickstarter writeup:

Kent Nerburn says:

The Film of Neither Wolf nor Dog is shaking the tin cup


Some of you may have seen that Steven Simpson, the director of the film version of Neither Wolf nor Dog, is running another kickstarter to get funds to finish post production and begin some distribution. We need your help to get this baby polished up and ready for prime time. Here is the kickstarter page:


While you’re there, look at the trailer he’s put together. I think it is great.

(Screenshot – only – from trailer)


But I want to tell you a little about this strange venture of movie making.

The world divides into two camps when you look at the need for $30,000 to finish a film.

Camp one says, “Why do you need so damn much money?” I was in that camp for a long time.

The other says, “How can you make a movie so cheaply?” Anyone who knows the industry is in that camp.

Let me tell you a little story. Back when this film was first proposed by a successful Hollywood director, he told me, “We’ll do it low budget. Nothing more than six million. Probably closer to one or two million.” I cocked my head like a confused dog. Six million? Two millon? I stay in $35 a night motels and get antsy when I have to pay more than $10 for lunch. Six million? Two million? What planet do these guys live on?

Well, they live on planet Hollywood, which I visited one time, with its special dressing trailers on site for actors and an entire kitchen set up with chefs preparing swordfish and steaks and specialty diets for vegans, vegetarians, ominvores, gluten free-folks, etc.; people paid to clack “action” signs and people paid to oversee the people clacking “action” signs and nose powderers and costume stitchers and on and on. This doesn’t even touch the big bucks guys like directors and actors. Then there are real transportation costs and production costs, all of which add up. Look at that insane list on the credits at the end of a film and try to figure it out. All you need to know is that all of that stuff adds up to millions. And, there you are.

Then go to Steven’s reality. Buying trucks and an old car off craigslist; getting cameras on ebay, driving from L.A. to Pine Ridge in the Nissan with Chris, the actor who plays me, breaking down in Death Valley or some equivalently inhospitable place, getting actors to work almost for nothing, paying himself nothing, paying me nothing, finding a house on the reservation where all the actors could stay together in the basement, having the family who owns the house cook the meals, getting a raggedy old camper that Dave Bald Eagle could rest in on site in while they were out shooting if it got too hot. . . well, you get the idea. “Shoestring” doesn’t begin to address how this project is being done.

But you can only cut costs so far. Even with everyone working for peanuts or nothing, Steven still had to dig into his own pocket to get the filming done. And the post production and preparation of the film for showing requires technology and involvement of people who work at market rate, not for a lunch at Subway. He has done amazingly with what he has — look at the trailer and judge for yourself — but now, raising this from the “scotch tape and baling wire” level of the actual filming to the high production standards needed to go out in public requires putting the film in a well-tailored suit, metaphorically speaking. If he can pull that off for $30,000, it is another miracle.

We need to give him a chance to pull of that miracle. Please help him get there.

I’ll make you a deal. When we get to $20,000 I’ll tell you the strange saga of how Fatback became a corpulent Corgi in the movie. It’s a story worth hearing.

Thanks for your faith in this project. www.kickstarter.com/projects/126766071/neither-wolf-nor-dog-movie

Steven Lewis Simpson, Director says:

About this project

The Latest Trailer

The trailer gives you the essence of the film. 

My name is Steven Lewis Simpson and have been a feature film director for over 20 years.

I am currently far through post-production on an extraordinary new movie Neither Wolf Nor Dog based on Kent Nerburn’s acclaimed novel by the same name. We had a successful Kickstarter last September helping raise funds to enter production. To fully achieve the films considerable potential we are running a new campaign to help fund the major expenses involved in properly finishing a film. (see below).

The film is effectively a road movie where a Lakota elder and his closest friend drag a white author through the heart of contemporary Lakota Country taking the him deep out of his comfort zone. It is a moving, profound story.

We already have one of the worlds top film festivals holding the door open long after their deadline to review the film but it is essential that we deliver the film to the highest technical standard for us to get into these top showcases and thus help secure major distribution. 

This is what may make the difference between the film being seen by a few versus having a worldwide impact. 

The production proved to be a miraculous experience due to our amazing actors and support team.

The novel has been immensely popular within Indian Country and beyond and for a number of years it has had the reputation with many in Hollywood of being the great unmade contemporary Indian Country script. Kent Nerburn has published 16 books of creative non-fiction and essays, focusing on Native American and American culture and general spirituality including two sequel novels to Neither Wolf Nor Dog.

“This is one of those rare works that once you’ve read it, you can never look at the world, or at people, the same way again. It is quiet and forceful and powerful.” — American Indian College Fund

Who is Mr. Nemtsov and Why He Was Killed / Sputnik International. . . plus two RT stories . . . ~J

RT: Nemtsov murder: Russian investigators probing provocation, Charlie Hebdo links

RT: Everything will be done to punish those behind ‘vile’ murder of Nemtsov – Putin



There has been no shortage of theories on who is behind the killing of well-known Russian politician Boris Nemtsov, fatally shot late on Friday in Moscow, as tributes and condolences pour in for the man, considered a likely presidential candidate in 1999 but who had stepped away from mainstream politics recently and was not involved in any major campaigns.

Investigators are considering all possible versions of the tragedy that took place at 11:40 p.m. in the Russian capital. Nemtsov’s business activity, personal animosity and a provocation have been named as the chief possible motives for the politician’s murder. Investigators also check threats Nemtsov received over his stance on the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris. The murder could also allegedly be linked to the Ukrainian conflict.

The brutal murder could likely be a contract street killing, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, referring to what happened as a provocation. A representative of the Russian Investigative Committee told journalists that investigators consider this scenario, a rare occurrence in Russia in over a decade.

According to Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, the investigators have interrogated witnesses, including Ukrainian model Anna Duritskaya, 23, who was with Nemtsov when he was killed. She was not harmed in the shooting after seven or eight shots were fired at Nemtsov from a passing car, with four hitting the man’s back.

Moscow police are engaged in an active search for the unidentified shooter or shooters and a white Ford they allegedly were in at the time of the incident.

Nemtsov became increasingly popular in the 1990s, when he served as the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region and then as an energy minister and a deputy prime minister in the Russian government under President Boris Yeltsin. At some point he was even considered Yeltsin’s protégé and his likely successor. His popularity waned since then. Many Russians see Nemtsov as representing an era of painful reforms, carried out in the 1990s.

Since 2003, Nemtsov was more involved in business than politics. His total income in 2008 amounted to 183.4 million rubles (over $7.3 million at the 2008 average exchange rate).

Nemtsov, critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was involved in Russia’s fragmented opposition movement. He co-chaired the RPR-PARNAS (Republican Party of Russia – People’s Freedom Party) since 2012 and was also one of the leaders of the liberal Solidarnost movement.

In 2013, Nemtsov returned to power, serving as a member of the Yaroslavl Region’s parliament. The politician was in no way constrained in his activity after getting elected, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee at Russia’s Federal Assembly, Konstantin Kosachev said.

PressTV: Policing nukes: Under whose authority?

Nukes pose a serious threat to the whole world.

Nukes pose a serious threat to the whole world.

By Kaneez Fatima

The much-hyped date for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to the US Congress regarding Iran’s nuclear program fast approaches. While Netanyahu’s diplomatic theatrics have failed to impress, let alone convince many, the move will nonetheless cast a shadow over the negotiations underway between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

Setting aside Iran’s nuclear program and this final push for a comprehensive negotiated agreement, it is the players with which Iran has to negotiate with that has me intrigued. Spearheaded by the US, along with its European partners in this alliance, the country has portrayed itself as a lone crusader in a dangerous world, trying to protect the people from the looming threat of an irresponsible regime procuring nuclear weapons.

No one is arguing against the direct existential threat nuclear weapons pose for humanity today. But who gets the moral authority to decide which country (if any) can be trusted with these weapons of mass destruction? Who gets to take the center stage at international fora and have the right to call out other nations over their nuclear weapons arsenal? Logic dictates that this right or obligation cannot be given to the very states whose own records are tainted with mass deaths, destruction and a disturbing rate of proliferation. Logic dictates that you cannot make the school bully a prefect and expect him to fulfill his duties honorably.

Tools of economic sanctions and political isolation are utilized in combination with the demonization of a country like Iran, which is a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), giving it the full right to develop nuclear technology for peaceful and civilian purposes. But this isn’t about Iran. It’s about the world order that is propagated in international arenas, namely the UN and its organizational arms like the International Atomic Energy Agency where an NPT compliant country like Iran is often subjected to punitive measures, and Israel’s nukes go unchecked, unquestioned and unopposed. America’s own nuclear weapons stockpiles, and the increasing sophistication and development of its WMDs never become a topic for debate on these international platforms.

Why? Because the structure of international institutions, like the UN Security Council and the IAEA, has been established thus that it is often the aggressor who is in control; the power structure of organizations that are supposed to safeguard the interests of the weak and provide a forum at which all nation states are given an opportunity to address regional and global concerns on an equal footing is decidedly skewed in favor of those governments that are often the root cause of the problems the world faces.

Through their influence, governments like that of the US have continued to push for their agenda, shrouding their unilateral decisions under the guise of international consensus. The world has seen how their intelligence agencies have fed flawed intel reports to push for a certain agenda. The Iraq invasion is a prime example, so are the CIA’s attempts to influence the IAEA over Iran’s nuclear program.

At the same while, Israel, an occupying power known to have made use of internationally banned weapons against the Palestinian population, continues to possess hundreds of nuclear warheads. US protection and patronage has ensured the regime’s stockpiles are never made a topic of concern, nor are they open to inspection by the international nuclear watchdog. Mere calls have been made on Israel to sign onto the NPT and comply with international law. But these calls have gone unheeded without any consequences, diplomatic or otherwise, being spelled out for Israel.

The horrific images of Hiroshima and Nagasaki can never be erased from the pages of history. This should have been the point where humanity drew the line against such weapons. However, the euphoria resulting from the end of the Second World War, and the might-is-right mantra practically demonstrated by the US use of the atomic bomb decisively ended any debate against these weapons that could have started. Then came the Cold War and the realization that whilst the good-guy Uncle Sam can be trusted with nukes, and trusted that he will only use them against the bad guys, these weapons in the hands of an enemy can prove to be catastrophic.

Fast-forward to today, and Russia and America continue to maintain their rather large and sophisticated stockpiles. Britain, France and China are also armed with these weapons. Despite there being no Soviet Union to fight against, NATO continues to exist and is expanding. It’s presence in Europe translates in states like Belgium, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands hosting nuclear weapons on their soil, along with possessing the capabilities of making them operational.

There was hope under Obama’s resetting of ties with Russia, and a new START agreement, that a world without nukes could actually be conceivable. But we quickly learned that sophistication and advancement of nuclear weapons arsenal was the strategy being given preference over the actual number of warheads. It didn’t matter how many warheads were destroyed. What mattered was that the remaining ones were capable of full-scale destruction.

The recent civil war in Ukraine, and the NATO-Russia tensions that have resulted from it, is a reminder that for as long as nuclear weapons continue to exist, mankind is a mere blink away from full-blown nuclear war. The nukes are not a deterrent if the state possessing them is the aggressor. The US and the European wing of its military, NATO, have never shied from pulling the trigger, taking hundreds of lives for the sake of a strategic objective. So why are they afforded the benefit of the doubt when it comes to nuclear weapons?

Unfortunately, for as long as our international institutions, that are obligated and entrusted with upholding moral values and preserving peace, coexistence and human life, continue to be subjugated to the will of certain players, the world will always remain under the dark shadow of an impending nuclear catastrophe. As long as international mechanisms, processes and regulatory organizations are not allowed to function independently and in an unbiased manner, our world will be policed by those we least trust. As long as moral authority continues to be monopolized by the mighty and the aggressors, the peace envisioned through complete nuclear disarmament shall remain a dream.

RT: ‘US spends millions on overseas propaganda, but no one is buying it’

Despite the US’ bottomless PR budget to influence overseas, people are not attracted by what’s on offer as they are tired of US interventionism, exceptionalism, and the bombing of their countries, Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute told RT.

US Secretary of the State, John Kerry, said he is concerned the US is falling behind when it comes to putting out information. He stressed that RT’s influence is growing worldwide and the US doesn’t have“an equivalent that can be heard in Russian.” Claiming that RT has huge costs he asked for money to be provided for the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) in the US. RT’s budget for 2015 is $220 million while the budget of the BBG is $721 million. Kerry also heaped praise on the appointment of Andrew Lack as a head of BBG who recently put RT into the same context as ISIS and Boko Haram.

RT: John Kerry insinuated the US is losing the public relations war with Russia. What do you make of that?

Daniel McAdams: The numbers speak louder than words: $700 and some million versus $200 and some, maybe up to $300 million for RT. I think the problem the US has is they have an unlimited advertising budget, but the product they’re selling is not very attractive overseas. People are tired of US interventionism; they’re tired of US exceptionalism; they’re tired of the US bombing their country – if you’re a Somali, you don’t care about listening to a radio broadcast from the US, you just wish the US would stop bombing you.

But I’ll say one thing: the BBG budget is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how the US government influences media overseas. There’s probably another $100 million in direct support to so-called ‘independent news publications’ overseas, and these are all different newspapers and broadcasting outfits that tow the US line that aren’t directly US-related.

There are also various programs within the US government. There is a program that brought over about a thousand journalists from overseas to come train in the US; this is one of the State Department projects. And just one bureau of the State Department has by their account 86 media programs overseas. Even the $700 million figure… is just a tip of the iceberg on how much the US spends to influence the media overseas. And, sorry, the effect is not very good.

RT: Given what you’ve just said, do you think there will be people in the US government that might disagree with John Kerry?

DM: Yes, then there is a solution- you got to double the money. They want to double the money to sell something that nobody is buying – that is the problem. The problem is the policy, not the PR that tries to sell the policy. In that hilarious clip from Victoria Nuland, she says: “Oh, RT is just a tiny audience and we have a great wonderful diversity in the media in the US.” Sorry, that is not the case. I’m personally not a fan of any government-funded media, but the fact of the matter is that the so-called private media in the US marches lockstep in line with the White House and the State Department, there is no diversity in the mainstream media. So she is just absolutely wrong in what she says.

RT: What’s the reason do you think that RT is getting so much attention amongst the US government officials at the moment?

DM: You have alternative people like The Ron Paul Institute on your program… The fact that you have diverse and interesting shows, you challenge the paradigm, and people are interested in that. People are tuning out of new news in the US at record levels – they don’t watch TV news, they don’t take newspapers. It’s all boring; they all say the same things. When something comes along the alternative media is a different story in the US and it is growing by leaps and bounds. People that are offering a different perspective – Americans are increasingly finding it very attractive.

RT: Do you think that there is any significance in the timing of Mr. Kerry’s remarks?

DM: I think he is always looking at a way to poke Russia, and he is also looking for a way to get more money, there is never enough money for these things. That is all about spending the money and influencing things overseas.

Zerohedge: China Just Sided With Russia Over The Ukraine Conflict


When it comes to the Ukraine proxy war, which started in earnest just about one year ago with the violent coup that overthrew then president Yanukovich and replaced him with a local pro-US oligarch, there has been no ambiguity who the key actors were: on the left, we had the west, personified by the US, the European Union, and NATO in general; while on the right we had Russia. In fact, if there was any confusion, it was about the role of that other “elephant in the room” – China.

To be sure, a question few asked throughout the Ukraine civil war is just whose side is China leaning toward. After all the precarious balance of power between NATO and Russia had resulted in a stalemate in which neither side has an obvious advantage (even as the Ukraine economy died, and its currency hyperinflated, waiting for a clear winner), and the explicit or implicit support of China to either camp would make all the difference in the world, not to mention the world’s most formidable axis.

Today we finally got the answer, and the winner is… this guy:

Xinhua reported that late on Thursday Qu Xing, China’s ambassador to Belgium, was quoted as blaming competition between Russia and the West for the Ukraine crisis, urging Western powers to “abandon the zero-sum mentality” with Russia.

Cited by Reuters, Xing said that Western powers should take into consideration Russia’s legitimate security concerns over Ukraine.

Reuters’ assessment of Xing speech: “an unusually frank and open display of support for Moscow’s position in the crisis.

At least it is not a warning to the US to back off or else. Yet.

Speaking in very clear and explicit language, something diplomats are not used to doing, the Chinese ambassador said the “nature and root cause” of the crisis was the “game” between Russia and Western powers, including the United States and the European Union.

He said external intervention by different powers accelerated the crisis and warned that Moscow would feel it was being treated unfairly if the West did not change its approach.

“The West should abandon the zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of Russia into consideration,” Qu was quoted as saying.

His comments were an unusually public show of understanding from China for the Russian position. China and Russia see eye-to-eye on many international diplomatic issues but Beijing has generally not been so willing to back Russia over Ukraine.

As noted above, China has long been very cautious not to be drawn into the struggle between Russia and the West over Ukraine’s future, not wanting to alienate a key ally. And yet, something changed overnight, with this very clear language, warning some could say, that China will no longer tolerate Pax Americana, and even the mere assumption of a unipolar western world, let alone the reality.

Qu’s comments take place just as talks between the United States and its European allies over harsher sanctions against Moscow.

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Western powers of trying to dominate and impose their ideology on the rest of world. The United States and European delegations slammed Moscow for supporting rebels in eastern Ukraine.


Qu said Washington’s involvement in Ukraine could “become a distraction in its foreign policy”.

And then, Qu’s slap in the face of Obama: “The United States is unwilling to see its presence in any part of the world being weakened, but the fact is its resources are limited, and it will be to some extent hard work to sustain its influence in external affairs.

Especially if and when China decides to send a few peacekeepers of its own into Ukraine. You know – just to make sure US influence in external affairs isn’t “sustained” too much.
