The Real Reason We Are Bombing Syria | Dennis J. Kucinich

If you put what Dennis Kucinich writes into the context of Obama taking orders from the Bush-Clinton regime, and the “Coalition” as the anti-Bush faction, what do you think is really happening in the Middle East? -LW

The administration’s response to the conjunction of this weekend’s People’s Climate March and the International Day of Peace?

1) Bomb Syria the following day, to wrest control of the oil from ISIS which gained its foothold directly in the region through the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Jordan funding and arming ISIS’ predecessors in Syria.

2) Send the president to UN General Assembly, where he will inevitably give a rousing speech about climate and peace, while the destruction of the environment and the shattering of world peace is on full display 5,000 miles away.

Nothing better illustrates the bankruptcy of the Obama administration’s foreign policy than funding groups that turn on the U.S. again and again, a neo-con fueled cycle of profits for war makers and destruction of ever-shifting “enemies.”

The fact can’t be refuted: ISIS was born of Western intervention in Iraq and covert action in Syria.

This Frankenstein-like experiment of arming the alleged freedom-seeking Syrian opposition created the monster that roams the region. ISIS and the U.S. have a curious relationship — mortal enemies that, at the same time, benefit from some of the same events:

a) Ousting former Iraqi President Nouri al Maliki for his refusal to consent to the continued presence of U.S. troops in his country.

b) Regime change in Syria.

c) Arming the Kurds so they can separate from Iraq, a preliminary move to partitioning Iraq.

What a coincidence for war-profiteering neo-cons and the war industry, which has seen its stock rise since last week’s congressional vote to fund the rapid expansion of war. We have met the enemy and he isn’t only ISIS, he is us.

Phase two of the war against Syria is the introduction of 5,000 “moderate” mercenaries (as opposed to immoderate ones), who were trained in Saudi Arabia, the hotbed of Wahhabism, at an initial installment cost of $15 billion. These new “moderates” will replace the old “moderates,” who became ISIS, just in time for Halloween.

The administration, in the belief that you can buy, rent, or lease friends where they otherwise do not exist, labor under the vain assumption that our newfound comrades-in-arms will remain in place during their three-year employment period, ignoring the inevitability that those “friends” you hire today could be firing at you tomorrow.

One wonders if Saudi training of these moderate mercenaries will include methods of beheading which were popularized by the Saudi government long before their ISIS progeny took up the grisly practice.

The U.S. is being played.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia can now overtly join with the U.S. in striking Syria, after they have been covertly attempting for years to take down the last secular state in the region. We are now advancing the agenda of the actual Islamic States — Saudi Arabia and Qatar — to fight the ersatz Islamic State of ISIS.

Now U.S. bombs and missiles might inadvertently “make the world safe” for theocracy rather than democracy. Today we read reports that Israel has shot down a Syrian warplane, indicating the terrible possibility of a wider regional conflict.

What does this have to do with the security of the 50 States United? Nothing!

Last week Congress acted prematurely in funding a war without following the proscriptions of Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. (The day of the vote, I urged Congress to resist this dangerous and misguided legislation.) But even while the funding was given, the explicit authorization to go to war was not. To authorize a war, Congress must vote for war. It has not done that yet.

To sell its case, the administration is borrowing from the fear mongering tactics of the Bush administration. ISIS poses no direct, immediate threat to the United States –The White House even said so yesterday, just hours before bombing commenced – yet we are being sold make-believe about ISIS sleeper cells.

This attack on Syria, under the guise of striking ISIS, is by definition, a war of aggression. It is a violation of international law. It could lead to crimes against humanity and the deaths of untold numbers of innocent civilians. No amount of public relations or smooth talking can change that.

And yes, members of this Democratic administration, including the president who executed this policy, must be held accountable by the International Criminal Court and by the American people, who he serves.

But as we know, war is a powerful and cynical PR tactic. I expect the bombing of Syria will momentarily boost the White House’s popularity with self-serving heroic accounts of damage inflicted upon ISIS (and the U.S. equipment they use). Stuffing the November ballot box with bombs and missiles may even help the Democratic Party retain the Senate.

But after the election the voters will discover that the president played into the hands of extremists, hurt civilians, and embroiled our country deep into another conflict in the Middle East.

There were alternatives. The U.S. and the international community could have contained and shrunk ISIS by cutting off its funds and its revenue from sale of oil on the black market. We could have looked to strike a deal with Syria and Iran.

In foreign policy, the administration has failed. Congress has failed. Both the Democratic and Republican Parties have passed the national checkbook to their patrons in the war contracting business. And passed the bill to future generations.

The American people, who in 2008 searched for something redemptive after years of George W. Bush’s war, realize in 2014 that hope and change was but a clever slogan. It was used to gain power and to keep it through promoting fear, war, the growth of the National Security state, and an autumnal bonfire of countless billions of tax dollars which fall like leaves from money trees on the banks of the Potomac.

Stew Webb of VeteransToday on PressTV Discussing ISIS

I haven’t paid attention to Stew Webb in a long time. I had no idea that he was now reporting for Veteran’s Today. This interview with PressTV was a pleasant surprise. To hear Stew tell it, the Global Coalition we’ve been hearing about is actually part of the effort to finally shut down the the Bush-Clinton crime family–a HUGE part of “the cabal.” In case you haven’t been keeping up, there were 104+ countries who committed themselves to helping Iraq get rid of the Bush-funded terrorists at the United Nations in the past two weeks.

This being the case, I highly recommend paying attention to President Obama and what is happening at the UN Security Council and General Assembly meetings betwen now and Tuesday, September 30th. Watch President Obama’s mannerisms in front of the camera, as well as the things he is talking about in-front of the camera. He has been coerced by the Bush family for so long… We may actually see him performing his job, unencumbered. -LW

Stew Webb blasting away the lies of the mainstream media concerning ISIS which is being run by the US and Israel! It’s all about taking over more countries! It’s sad to see how far the US has fallen when you must go Iranian media to get any truth about what’s really going on. US media is all lies, all time time!

UK Govt. covert vote fraud denying Scotland Independence is a quantum worse than 2000 U.S. Supreme Court fraud in Bush v. Gore making Bush US President & What to do about it! – BREAKING NEWS

The ITCCS verdict is referenced. This is amazing! -LW

By Alfred Lambremont Webre

VANCOUVER, BC – This article is not about EU, finance, banking, retirement, social welfare or petroleum, and whether it is better for Scotland to have stayed within the UK or not on public policy grounds.

This article is about prima facie evidence of systemic large scale vote-counting fraud in the counting of the YES and NO paper ballots that could only have occurred under a concerted high-level order within the UK government and Vote-Counting administration to find a NO result whatever the cost.

“The darkest wrong in Scottish history”

My legal analysis is that “the darkest wrong in its history has just been done to the Scottish people.”  Because Scotland’s collective free will to become an independent nation by a fair, free vote has been thwarted by systemic fraud ordered by what can only be the highest levels of the political, financial, intelligence, and Monarchical plausible-deniability hierarchy in England, the basic social contract between Scotland and England was broken. At the very least, Scotland is entitled by law to a Recount, or to a Revote (because of the likelihood that existing ballots have been destroyed).

Setting up the Referendum Vote Sting

The following is prima facie evidence of the elements of the covert UK systemic program to sabotage the September 18, 2014 Independence Referendum and secure a fraudulent NO vote.

1. Prohibition of a National Vote Recount – The availability of regulatory or statutory provisions for a vote recount in the case of demonstrations of vote fraud, mishap, close vote, etc. is fundamental to the democratic voting process and is present in any standard democratic voting process anywhere in the world.

Yet, although the UK and Scotland consider themselves among the world’s leading democracies, on the day of the referendum, the legislation governing the referendum stipulated that “In addition, no recount can be ordered in a particular area after its result has been declared.”

On Sept 18, 2014, the UK Telegraph reported, “”No national recount was allowed for independence referendum. The chief counting officer has permitted recounts at a local level in Scotland’s 32 council areas but a national one will not happen even if the result is close.  The chief counting officer for the Scottish independence referendum has confirmed there can be no national recount even if the result is close.

“Mary Pitcaithly has said that local counting officers in each of Scotland’s 32 councils can consider “reasonable” requests for recounts in their respective areas where genuine concerns have been raised.

“All votes are counted locally and concerns about the count must be resolved locally. In addition, no recount can be ordered in a particular area after its result has been declared.”[1]

HOW SCOTLAND VOTE FRAUD WAS DONE: By eliminating the possibility of a recount, the UK government controllers of Scottish referendum ensured the conditions for a covert operation in which vote counters would be ordered to switch YES ballots to NO stacks and do other “dirty tricks” that ensured a NO result, with no legal recourse of a recount.

2. Scottish Referendum Vote Counters ordered to commit massive vote fraud – A second key element of the Scottish Referendum vote fraud are systematic orders from higher ups within the UK Government and vote counting administration to vote counters to engage in a variety of “dirty tricks” that switched YES ballots to be counted as NO ballots, leading to a NO result.

Prima facie evidence of this systematic practice includes the following:

A. International accredited election observers finding of (1) vote counting irregularities and (2) that Scottish Referendum does not meet international standards.  On Sept. 19, 2014, The Guardian reported that “Russia has said the conduct of the Scottish referendum “did not meet international standards”, with its observers complaining the count took place in rooms that were too big and that the procedure was badly flawed….”

“The team from Moscow’s Public Institute of Suffrage watched voting take place in the Scottish capital and the surrounding area. It also met with Scottish politicians, voters and representatives from non-governmental organisations, Ria said.

“Borisov said he was unimpressed by what he saw. He said the room where he watched the count on Thursday night was a cavernous ‘aircraft hangar’ next to an airfield. It was difficult to see what was going on, he said, adding: ‘The hangar is approximately 100m by 300m. There are tables, with voting papers stacked upon them, but the observers are stuck around the perimeter. Even if you want to, it’s impossible to tell what’s happening. It’s also unclear where the boxes with ballot papers come from.’”[2]

B. Prima facie video evidence exists of blatant examples of the systemic vote counting fraud ordered by higher ups within the vote counting administration.

One video example only is contained in this video, which is part of a petition that now has over 70,000 supporters.

Petition for revote with Counting Safeguards

This petition, which more than 70,000 people have signed, supports a Scottish referendum revote with Vote Counting Safeguards as follows:

Countless evidences of fraud during the recent Scottish Referendum have come to light, including two counts of votes being moved in bulk into a No pile, Yes votes clearly being seen in no piles and strange occurences [sic] with dual fire alarms and clear cut fraud in Glasgow. We demand a revote be taken of said referendum, where each vote shall be counted by two individuals, one of whom should be an international impartial party without a stake in the vote.[3]

What remedies do the defrauded Scottish people have now?

When the U.S. Supreme Court in the 2000 case Gore v. Bush[4] fraudulently awarded the U.S. Presidency to George W. Bush even though Al Gore had won the democratic vote, not only the American people were the losers, but the world at large were losers, including the UK.

Governmental fraud has tragic consequences. As a former Judge on the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, we found former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, former U.S. President George W. Bush (and later Bush’s cabinet of Vice President Richard B. Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld et alios) guilty of the Nuremberg-level war crimes of aggressive war and genocide for the illegal invasion and war in Iraq continues to spin off its genocidal industries.[5]

The UK Government vote fraud has a cost both to the Scottish people (who have voted for their Independence as the prima facie evidence of vote count fraud shows) and to the people of the world who now will continue with the unabated, criminally corrupt organization known as the UK Crown, found by the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels guilty of child genocide.[6]

What remedies do the Scottish people have now when a diabolically plotted referendum vote fraud by the UK Government’s highest level’s have eliminated recount from the very legislation authorizing the referendum?

There are many remedies, depending on Political Will!

Assuming that there is political will to have a proper and fair recount or revote, there are many parties that have legal standing to go forward and legally secure a Recount or Revote:

1. Scottish Parliament – http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/

2. Citizens of Scotland (individually or in groups)

A. Remedies available Scottish Parliament (Scottish citizens need to apply political pressure to the Scottish Parliament showing massive vote fraud)

1. Scottish Parliament Files Emergency Motion with UK Parliament demanding Recount or Revote (Preferred) on basis of Fraud

2. If UK Parliament denies Emergency Motion, Scottish Parliament to Hold Independence Referendum under Auspices of Scottish Parliament.

  • Present YES result to UK Parliament and hold 18 month Separation Negotiation
  • Simultaneously apply to international bodies and nation states [UN, EU, Organization of American States] for nation-state recognition
  • Seek advice of nations like Iceland that are thriving and independent and have thrown off IMF-Bankers’ grid.

B. Remedies available to Scottish citizens (Individuals and groups)

1. Seek Writ of Mandamus in Scottish or British Courts ordering officials to a Recount or Revote on the grounds of Fraud.

2. Bring powerful community and grass roots support to the Scottish Parliament to strengthen its political spine and political will to either file an Emergency Writ demanding a Recount or Revote (#1 above), or to hold an Independence Referendum of its own (#2 above).

3. If the current Scottish Parliament fails to take action upon being shown evidence of the Scottish referendum vote fraud scheme, then bring community pressure to call a new election and elect a Scottish Parliament that will hold a Scottish Independence Referendum and declare Scotland an Independent nation and takes all necessary actions to secure international recognition of its sovereignty and cooperation with similar nations like Iceland that have recently thrown over the yoke of covert banking rule.

World Leaders Are Flooding Into New York This Week For A Crucial Meeting – Business Insider

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon speaks at a news conference ahead of the 69th United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in New York

Wouldn’t you just love to know what else they are discussing at the UN, this week? -LW

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – World leaders gather in New York this week to tackle a host of crises: the violence Islamic State militants are wreaking in Iraq and Syria, the exponential spread of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa and deadlocked negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program.

There is little hope the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly will achieve much in the annual five-day marathon of speeches. But on the sidelines, U.S. officials plan to lobby allies for pledges of concrete military assistance to help defeat Islamic State, whose hardline Sunni Islamist fighters have taken over swaths of Syrian and Iraqi territory.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said more than 140 heads of state or government will attend the assembly’s annual “general debate”, which begins on Wednesday and ends Sept. 30. He noted an unusually large number of serious conflicts: in the Middle East, Africa and Ukraine.

“The world is facing multiple crises,” Ban told reporters.

“All have featured atrocious attacks on civilians, including children,” he said. “All have dangerous sectarian, ethnic or tribal dimensions. And many have seen sharp divisions within the international community itself over the response.”

U.N. officials and delegates say the top issue for Western and Arab leaders is the rampage of Islamic State militants, who are blamed for a wave of sectarian violence, beheadings and massacres of civilians.

“Together, we will address the horrendous violence in Syria and Iraq, where conflict and governance failures have provided a breeding ground for extremist groups,” Ban said.

U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to use the U.N. podium on Wednesday to call for more countries to join his coalition of more than 40 nations to prevent IS from expanding its territory. The United States has been bombing IS targets in Iraq for the past month but has yet to bomb Syria.

The White House said it was unlikely that Obama would meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani while both are in New York this week. But Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at which they are expected to discuss Iran’s atomic program and IS.

On Friday, Kerry told a special meeting of the Security Council that Iran could play a role in helping tackle IS, an apparent shift in the U.S. position. Both Iran and the United States have ruled out military cooperation.

EBOLA OUTBREAK

In addition to speeches by Obama, Rouhani and other high-profile leaders, other important attendees making their U.N. General Assembly debut this week include Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

On Wednesday, Obama will chair a rare summit meeting of the U.N. Security Council on the problem of foreign fighters. He last chaired a council summit in 2009 on eradicating nuclear weapons.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the council plans to adopt a resolution demanding countries “prevent and suppress” recruitment and travel of foreign fighters to join extremist militant groups like IS by ensuring it is a serious criminal offence under domestic laws. Foreign fighters in IS are believed to be the group’s cruelest.

U.N. member states will also tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa. Obama and other leaders will also attend a high-level meeting on the exponentially worsening hemorrhagic fever outbreak that has devastated Liberia, Sierra Leone and other countries in the region.

The meeting comes just after the Security Council declared Ebola a “threat to international peace and security” and established the first-ever U.N. mission dedicated to tackling a public-health threat.

Since the current outbreak was first detected in March, Ebola has infected at least 5,357 people, according to the World Health Organization, mostly in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. It has also spread to Senegal and Nigeria. The virus has killed an estimated 2,630 people.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had been due to speak at the General Assembly this week but canceled her trip to New York because of the Ebola crisis.

While the General Assembly speeches are going on, senior foreign ministry officials from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China are meeting in New York with Iranian officials. They will try to break a deadlock in talks aimed at ending sanctions in exchange for curbs on Iran’s nuclear program. Foreign ministers from the six powers may join the talks in the course of the week.

Even though a Nov. 24 deadline for a long-term deal is a mere two months away, diplomats close to the talks say a deal in New York is unlikely.

Just ahead of the General Assembly on Tuesday, U.N. chief Ban will convene a global summit meeting on climate change that aims to set the stage for a major environmental conference in Paris next year. Obama is expected to use the session to highlight strides the United States has made on climate change.

There will also be high-level side meetings on conflicts in Syria, Libya, South Sudan, Ukraine, the Central African Republic, Mali, the Israeli-Palestinian problem, and the U.N. war on poverty.

Police Investigating Alleged Vote Fraud In Glasgow

“The Corporation” addresses electoral fraud in the Scottish Independence Referendum. Hmm . . . -LW

Officials in Glasgow are investigating ten suspected cases of electoral fraud following the historic Scottish independence referendum on Thursday.

Colin Edgar of the Glasgow city council said that police were called in after ten occurrences of alleged fraud took place.

“We’ve had a number of suggestions over the course of the day that people have turned up at the polling station to vote and they appear to have voted already,” said Edgar. “So what’s happening tonight is we know which boxes those votes went into and we know the numbers on the votes, so the police have asked us to identify those votes, to take them away, keep them for evidence and hand them to them.”

Edgar said that fraud could have taken place because voters are not required to present identification at polling places in UK elections.

“Somebody turned up to vote, they gave their name, the presiding officer went to cross off their name on their list of voters to give them a ballot paper and found that their name had already been crossed off and a ballot paper already issued to somebody who apparently had the same name,” Edgar said.

“We contacted police straight away. The police asked us if we could recover the ballot papers, which we can because we know which box they’re in and we know the number on the ballot paper.”

Edgar stated that the ballots will be traced and secured before handing them to police. Each ballot contains an individual number, so staff members will be searching through the ballots to find the ten in question. If found, they will be separated from the hundreds of thousands of other ballots.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said the agency “takes the safety and security of the independence referendum extremely seriously and is working with partner agencies including local authorities and the chief counting officer to ensure the integrity of the ballot”.

Scottish Independence Referendum Fraud

Smoking-gun evidence of vote-rigging in the Scottish Independence Referendum. -LW

In Dundee, a strong YES area, the count was suspended twice due to fire alarms. The turnout in the strong YES area of Dundee was 78.8%, which is lower than the 85% turnout in Scotland as a whole In Dundee, ‘Yes’ ballot papers were spotted on a ‘No’ table.

THE “integrity” of the electoral register in Scotland has been called into question ahead of this month’s historic referendum vote after it emerged yesterday that children as young as three have been registered to vote and received polling cards. Once this is achieved, a corrupt if not criminal, manual count will sway the election in favor of the Bank of England, of course with the help of their secret servants called the Mi5. That’s when the voter fraud and rigging begins, and in the end, all questions about the legitimacy of the vote cannot be settled once the evidence is destroyed. The process is already in place. The ballots are thrown away. Easy-peazy. recount re-count

Margot MacDonald, former deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, wrote to the boss of MI5, Andrew Parker (above) asking for an assurance that MI5 spies would not interfere in the referendum on independence for Scotland. In Dundee, a fire alarm led to the evacuation of the building where the vote was being counted

As recently as Sunday, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth expressed hope that Scottish voters think very carefully about the future before voting in Thursday’s independence referendum, adding, “Well, I hope people will think very carefully about the future.”

A day after the Queen’s remarks, British Prime Minister David Cameron warned the Scots against declaring independence from the UK. As a final push for the No campaign, Cameron said, “There’s no going back from this. No re-run. If Scotland votes ‘yes’, the UK will split and we will go our separate ways forever,” he said in an emotional manner.

This is while the British state broadcaster BBC has been accused of biased coverage against the independence of Scotland. Salmond has slammed the network for using a “dirty tricks campaign” to disrupt the outcome of this week’s referendum on Scottish independence. scotland scottish independence “scotland independence” “vote no” “vote yes” vote uk british “united kingdom” “great britain” ballot 2014 2015 future union england london evidence camera footage media news entertainment count counting “made in uk” “made in scotland” whiskey “scotch whiskey” campaign government election elite games trendy trending viral europe “european union” gbp pound gold oil edinburgh glasgow “elite nwo agenda” exposed truth contract contractor alex jones infowars rant gerald celente max keiser david icke anonymous spain italy quebec texas states u.s. usa illuminati bilderberg royal bloodlines citizenship daboo7 glenn beck coast to coast am lindsey williams louis farrakhan

A survey conducted by Britain-based ICM research foundation and released on Sunday, showed that the pro-independence campaign enjoyed 54-percent support compared to the 46 percent for anti-independence campaign.

The Westminster has repeatedly warned against Scotland’s independence, saying it will jeopardize the UK’s stability and damage its international standing. Scottish authorities, on the other hand, argue that independence from the UK would free Scotland from London’s austerity policies and unnecessary military spending. The independence referendum could result in Scotland’s breakaway from the United Kingdom after more than 300 years of political union.

In Glasgow, “Police are investigating ten cases of electoral fraud.”

Voters turned up at polling stations to find that people had already voted using their names. Police officers have remove the ballot papers concerned. The papers were from 10 different boxes across Glasgow, and not concentrated in one area. In Dundee, a strong YES area, the count was suspended twice due to fire alarms.
