Keiser Report (E711): If It Bleeds, It Leads


In this episode of the Keiser Report from Mexico City, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the significance of Teotihuacan to the modern era of semi-divine elite hoarding wealth during a time of financial crop failures and lending droughts. In the second half, Max interviews media, retail and banking tycoon, Ricardo Salinas Pliego about ending prohibition, a buffet of ideas at the Festival of Ideas and the news business mantra of “if it bleeds, it leads” leading to the bad PR of Mexico. Finally, Max puts him in the ‘shark tank’ to pitch Mexico to China which has $250 billion to spend in the region.

Ukrainian Crisis News. War in Ukraine, Mariupol, DPR, NATO, Russia (27.01.2015)


1) Debaltsevo's pocket is closing 2) NATO Condemned Escalation in Ukraine 3) Ukrainian Army Successful Entered Russia 4) SSU: Popeye Fired Mariupol



The english is not great in this clip but their pro-eastern independence narrative of Kiev aggression, including the categorisation of the coup in the capital as a coup (putsch), is clearly more accurate than the western accounts. We can be fairly sure that Donetsk had been shelled by Kiev forces because the areas being hit are not occupied by the central government. This situation has caused the rebels to go on the offensive in order to protect the civilian population. When it comes to determining the truth we must recognise the fact that President Poroshenko has made the wild claim that 500 tanks and 9000 troops have crossed from Russia into Ukraine - and yet there are no satellite pictures of this event or any other evidence.

The third point in the clipped text above the video refers to men of fighting age fleeing from Ukraine to Russia so that they could not be drafted into Kiev's army.

The clip here is an attempt at determining which side is winning in Ukraine. This is an important question to ask because there are will be consequences that may lead to increased support from NATO or overt support from Russia. The west may abandon Kiev if the Government collapses due to their economic situation and generally poor situation militarily. Russia will be blamed for the disaster.

Russia In The Cross Hairs — Paul Craig Roberts


Washington’s attack on Russia has moved beyond the boundary of the absurd into the realm of insanity.

The New Chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, has declared the Russian news service, RT, which broadcasts in multiple languages, to be a terrorist organization equivalent to Boko Haram and the Islamic State, and Standard and Poor’s just downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status.

Today RT International interviewed me about these insane developments.

In prior days when America was still a sane country, Lack’s charge would have led to him being laughed out of office. He would have had to resign and disappear from public life. Today in the make-believe world that Western propaganda has created, Lack’s statement is taken seriously. Yet another terrorist threat has been identified–RT. (Although both Boko Haram and the Islamic State employ terror, strictly speaking they are political organizations seeking to rule, not terror organizations, but this distinction would be over Lack’s head. Yes, I know. There is a good joke that could be made here about what Lack lacks. Appropriately named and all that.)

Nevertheless, whatever Lack might lack, I doubt he believes his nonsensical statement that RT is a terrorist organization. So what is his game?

The answer is that the Western presstitute media by becoming Ministries of Propaganda for Washington, have created large markets for RT, Press TV, and Al Jazeera. As more and more of the peoples of the world turn to these more honest news sources, Washington’s ability to fabricate self-serving explanations has declined.

RT in particular has a large Western audience. The contrast between RT’s truthful reporting and the lies spewed by US media is undermining Washington’s control of the explanation. This is no longer acceptable.
--------------------------------------------------------
The other item in the interview was the downgrading of Russian credit to junk status.
Standard and Poor’s downgrade is, without any doubt, a political act. It proves what we already know, and that is that the American rating firms are corrupt political operations. Remember the Investment Grade rating the American rating agencies gave to obvious subprime junk? These rating agencies are paid by Wall Street, and like Wall Street they serve the US government.

A look at the facts serves to establish the political nature of the ruling. Don’t expect the corrupt US financial press to look at the facts. But right now, we will look at the facts.

Indeed, we will put the facts in context with the US debt situation.

According to the debt clocks available online, the Russian national debt as a percentage of Russian GDP is 11 percent. The American national debt as a percentage of US GDP is 105 percent, about ten times higher.
--------------------------------------------------------
In my opinion, the neoliberal economists who control Russian economic policy are a much greater threat to the sovereignty of Russia than economic sanctions and US missile bases. To survive Washington, Russia desperately needs people who are not romantic about the West.
 
To dramatize the situation, if President Putin will grant me Russian citizenship and allow me to appoint Michael Hudson and Nomi Prins as my deputies, I will take over the operation of the Russian central bank and put the West out of operation.

But that would require Russia taking risks associated with victory. The Atlanticist Integrationists inside the Russian government want victory for the West, not for Russia. A country imbued with treason inside the government itself has reduced chance against Washington, a determined player.

Another fifth column operating against Russia from within are the US and German funded NGOs. These American agents masquerade as “human rights organizations,” as “women’s rights organizations,” as “democracy organizations,” and whatever other cant titles that serve in a politically correct age and are unchallengeable.

Yet another threat to Russia comes from the percentage of the Russian youth who lust for the depraved culture of the West. Sexual license, pornography, drugs, self-absorption. These are the West’s cultural offerings. And, of course, killing Muslims.

If Russians want to kill people for the fun of it and to solidify US hegemony over themselves and the world, they should support “Atlanticist integration” and turn their backs on Russian nationalism. Why be Russian if you can be American serfs?

What better result for the American neoconservatives than to have Russia support Washington’s hegemony over the world? That is what the neoliberal Russian economists and the “European Integrationists” support. These Russians are willing to be American serfs in order to be part of the West and to be paid well for their treason.

Carl Sagan, Science and UFOs: Some Observations on the Subject


The following exchange occurred on Facebook and has been reproduced here for the interest of Spookyweather readers:

Comment: Sagan's book "The Demon Haunted World" has been my skeptical bible for the past 15 years. We need more critical thinking NOW! http://www.collective-evolution.com/2013/12/19/carl-sagans-two-warnings-for-humanity-in-his-very-last-interview-you-might-want-to-hear-this/

“We’ve arranged a society on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it.” – Carl Sagan

---------------------------------------------

Response: Great quote and good observations by Sagan in the interview 'summation' but I humbly submit that there are serious problems with the Demon Haunted World which I also own. There are various claims made about UFO phenomena that are unsupported by evidence. Chapter 4 highlights the issue.

Sagan on p. 65 highlights the evidence so far collected (in the 50s)where he cites pilots, military people etc (but omits people like astronomers who have had sightings) and also radar and some some photographic evidence but then associates this with known hoaxes and with a story about hass hallucinations and misidentifications.

He talks about how Kenneth Arnold's sighting in 1947 was misreported where he only said the objects seen skipped like a saucer on water - not that they were saucer shaped. Sagan points out that according to Arnold, the first object flashed a number of times. This implies that the sighting was some sort of reflection. What is omitted is the fact that Arnold said that the 9 objects he saw were crescent shaped objects. If you google Kenneth Arnold you can see him with an artist's impression of what he saw. Also, Sagan tends to confabulate sighting reports (objects in the sky) with claims of alien abduction, thus leading us into an argument about alien visitiations and motives (that he uses to 'ridicule' the rest of the subject) which takes us away from analysis of the data - what is being observed. This removes us from a discussion of actual cases coming from the 'sober' observers he mentions on p.65. A generalised debunk is used of things that may account for observations - balloons, venus, aircraft, meteors, kites, mirages, sundogs, swamp gas etc. Juxtaposed to the best sighting reports these explanations to not hold water.

The biggest problem when it comes to sound analysis - which Sagan cites - is the Hollywood portrayal of UFOs/ETs and the fact that the world is filled with gulible people who with very little scientific training sometimes tend to jump to conclusions when they see something slightly out of the ordinary (although in real world examples most often people try to fit what they are seeing to know objects like aircaft first before coming to other conclusions - rightly or wrongly).

Sagan in Chpter 4 wrote he could not find any adults interested in the subject because they were all interested in Cold War matters - but clearly where were a number of credible people interested in what was going on at the time - especially after 1950 and 1952 when there were a number of 'flaps'. Reading journalist Donald Keyhoe's books from the 50s you can see that there was a level of serious interest in 'interplanetary' visitation from various respected scientists. There was not a blanket dismissal of the idea.

The pressure of not taking the subject seriously came from respected debunkers like Dr Donald Menzel, the sections of the media, and airforce denials. However, the US airforce astronomical consultant, Dr J. Allen Hynek, wrote a book (1972) dealing with analysing sighting data after Project Blue Book was shut down that criticised how the airforce conducted their investigations. It's also worth reading the original copy of Capt. Ruppelt's, who was a head of Blue Book, 1956 account of various sightings (he was pressured by the airforce to issue an 'updated' edition of his book where he adds material to denigrate the tone of the first copy).

Also recommended reading is papers submitted to Congress by atmospheric physicist Dr James McDonald, summations on the subject by Stanton Friedman (see video clip at the end), the modern history of the subject written by Richard Dolan, and the book 'The Missing Times' about how the media has treated the subject (the firewall between local news and national broadcasters) by Terry Hansen (who also wrote a history of the CIA for AE911truth pointing out that the CIA has always been involved in domestic information control/disinformation, and not overseas intelligence). I highly recommend watching the doco - UFOs, Lies and the Cold War.

Like any fringe subject there are people who believe any claim, but there is a core of data, misrepresented by various respected figures throught the decades, that does point to a real phenomena.

With Aleppo Encircled, West Seeks Wildcard to Save its Terror Hordes


The Syrian Arab Army is reportedly close to completely encircling militants that have occupied the northern city of Aleppo since they invaded it from NATO territory in 2012. Once the encirclement is complete, analysts believe the the city will be finally liberated, in a process similar to the retaking of Homs further south.

The desperation of militants facing this final phase in the Battle for Aleppo is indicated by their Western sponsors’ attempts to broker a ceasefire and arrange “aid” to reach them. Similar attempts were made in vain during the closing phases in the Battle for Homs in mid-2014 – with the city of Homs having been an epicenter of terrorist activity beginning in 2011, and now under the control of the Syrian government. Small pockets of militants have been isolated within Homs, allowing order to be restored across the majority of the city and the surrounding region.

As the Syrian government systematically regains control of a nation up-ended by Western-backed terrorists flooding the country accompanied by a seemingly inexhaustible torrent of cash, weapons, and equipment, the desperation of these Western interests has visibly increased.

The Guardian, chief among the many propagandists distorting the conflict since it began in 2011, is now attempting to form a narrative extorting global security by claiming only by NATO establishing a no-fly-zone over Aleppo and repelling Syrian government forces, can “moderate rebels” hold on to the city and repel lingering “Islamic State” (ISIS) forces.
--------
These same ISIS forces that are allegedly at odds with “moderate rebels” have seen thousands of so-called “moderates” defecting into their ranks recently bringing with them large sums of Western cash and weapons.

Special Report: Notes on Another Clinton Scandal: Was Vince Foster Killed?


(Truthstream Media.com) It seems as though the unfolding paedophile scandal connected to Bill Clinton may be delaying... or even preventing... a presidential run announcement by Hillary Clinton, which by all accounts would have been upon us.

But the Clinton's have many skeletons in the proverbial closet, and many other scandals that could crop up during her second bid for the highest office in the land, and larger quest for power.

Climategate, the Sequel: How We Are STILL Being Tricked with Flawed Data on Global Warming


Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “Massive tampering with temperatures in South America”. The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.
 
Noting that weather stations there were thin on the ground, he decided to focus on three rural stations covering a huge area of Paraguay. Giss showed it as having recorded, between 1950 and 2014, a particularly steep temperature rise of more than 1.5C: twice the accepted global increase for the whole of the 20th century.
 
But when Homewood was then able to check Giss’s figures against the original data from which they were derived, he found that they had been altered. Far from the new graph showing any rise, it showed temperatures in fact having declined over those 65 years by a full degree. When he did the same for the other two stations, he found the same. In each case, the original data showed not a rise but a decline.
 
Homewood had in fact uncovered yet another example of the thousands of pieces of evidence coming to light in recent years that show that something very odd has been going on with the temperature data relied on by the world's scientists. And in particular by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which has driven the greatest and most costly scare in history: the belief that the world is in the grip of an unprecedented warming.
 
How have we come to be told that global temperatures have suddenly taken a great leap upwards to their highest level in 1,000 years? In fact, it has been no greater than their upward leaps between 1860 and 1880, and 1910 and 1940, as part of that gradual natural warming since the world emerged from its centuries-long “Little Ice Age” around 200 years ago.

Ignoring the Proxy War in Syria: Letter to the Herald Sun Newspaper (Australia)


Here is a (perhaps too long) letter I sent to the letters section of the Herald Sun Newpaper in Australia. They'll never print it:

Ignoring the Proxy War in Syria

The world is doing more than simply 'ignoring the war in Syria' (Steven Katsineris letters 25/1). The world has been misled, by a chorus of corrupt political and media entities, into thinking this conflict is largely an internally driven affair rather than a western military-intelligence sponsored proxy war.

The culpability of the US, UK, France, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia has been kept hidden thereby diminishing our interest and feeling of responsibility for western involvement.

Ask yourself these simple questions.

Where is the CIA and the Turkish military when it comes to respectively monitoring and closing the border with Syria to stop the influx of extremist fighters and materiel into the battlezone - as seen in multiple German (DW) TV reports? Why does the US continue to arm 'moderate' rebels that openly admit they co-operate with Al Nursa and ISIS? Why did the US Government falsely push the idea that the chemical weapons attacks in Ghouta were the work of the Assad regime when the extremists had already been caught on numerous occasions using and threatening to use these weapons - most notably pointed out in an earlier UN investigation led by Carla Del Ponte? Why, when members of the Saudi Royal Family openly admit their support for the extremists, even having their intelligence chief Prince Bandar removed for failing to get results, does the US say nothing?

The well researched know that powerful neoconservative orientated groups in the US and UK have been seeking to open up a conflict in Syria from at least 2001. General Wesley Clark (ret.) recalled plans to attack 7 Middle Eastern countries within 5 years in the wake of the 911 attacks, while journalist Seymour Hersh's 2007 article on Bush Administration goals reported similar ambitions. The ex-French foreign minister Roland Dumas stated on national television that he was approached by British officials in 2009 for his support in initiating actions to bring about regime change in Syria. Indeed, we have early reports from Nov 2011, that reveal the escalating conflict in Syria was being directly supported by the US and Turkish authorities via the NATO airbase at Incirlik (the whistleblower site Boiling Frogs cites this evidence).

So what is the motive?

Simply put, all the participating countries in the war have strong controlling interest groups that want to see the Assad Government fall in order to maintain their monopolisation of the oil trade and bring about the destruction of Israel's enemies.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media facilitates this mass murder project by obfuscating the truth - literally ignoring evidence of State support for the extremists who are doing the West's dirty work. Both left and right wing sections of the press are responsible, including both The Herald Sun and The Age newspapers. The only way to end the fighting is to expose the real causes of the war beyond simply stating that a humanitarian disaster is unfolding.
______________________________________

I would have added more to this letter if the word count was not an issue...
I'd also ask:
*Why the US refused to support the Maliki Government in Iraq, for months on end, when they requested help, and finally when the US did attack ISIS they bombed oil and grain facilities in Syria (where the former target was about to be retaken by the Syrian Army).
*Why have the Israelis been providing medical aid to extremists operating in the Golan Heights (Syria)? There are photos of this.
Plus, I'd point out that the media is not simply being uncritical or silent on these activities but have actively generated regime change propaganda from CNN's 'Syria Danny' who fabricated stories of indiscriminate shelling to the BBC that fabricated a story of a chemical attack by altering the audio of an incident that involved napalm.
